I clearly need to upgrade my wife.

I don't think it's your wife who needs an upgrade. I think I'm an old obsolete model.

Re: Bizarro question about torture

The original poll, long taken down, was: About torture... A terrorist has tied your baby to a timebomb. You have the terrorist. He tells you that you have one hour before the bomb goes off. Would you include torture as one of the ways to save your baby? Yes, I would consider torturing the terrorist...

It is a simple fact that parents worry about their children, from in the womb for the rest of, hopefully, the parents' lives. Parents will worry about all sorts of incredibly unlikely events. The parents also invariably say they would do anything for their children. Yet a simple question like this ...

Re: Finnegans Wake, by James Joyce

yeah, I think it was just a slip. Throwing greatness on someone is a huge responsibility. That's why I always debase them. Joyce - as you know - sufferred from glaucoma.

Re: Crowdfunding

I made pledges to a couple of animal welfare projects on Kickstarter, Gofundme and some local crowdfunding pages (there's probably one or more in your country and it may be more suitable depending on the nature of your project - as Traden4Alpha pointed out, there might be some regulations on that). ...

Re: Finnegans Wake, by James Joyce

"A destiny that leads the English to the Dutch is strange enough; but one that leads from Epsom into Pennsylvania, and thence into the hills that shut in Altamont over the proud coral cry of the cock, and the soft stone smile of an angel, is touched by that dark miracle of chance which makes ne...
