  1. Ooh, I'll have to check it out. I love abandoned places, thanks.
  2. Science is based on observation and fact, not faith. It is flexible and it changes with what we know: religion does not. Science does not demand that people worship it. We don't pray to science, and we don't get mad at science when something goes wrong. Science is not a religion.
  3. You know, Steve, there isn't anything wrong with being a "librarian."
  4. I don't really have a problem with her, she's just not my style. That's why I'm surprised that I like that particular song so much, because I don't really care for her other stuff.
  5. Aren't you charming, Steve? You just ooze charisma and class.

    *shrug* He did fall out of a palm tree. I know you love him, but he's by far one of the most drugged up Rock and Rollers. The point is that as far as crazy rock star antics, Amy Winehouse isn't anything new.
  7. what is this, facebook?

    Felling paranoid, Joel? Makes it harder for you to stalk, doesn't it? It also makes it harder to tell if we're watching you. Must be terrifying.

    Haha, my dad once called her "Winey Aimhouse," it made me laugh a lot harder than it probably should have. I am easily amused. Ooh, I forgot about Keith when I was talking about the hypocritical response to her. He snorted his own Dad's ashes, for God's sake!

    When you live in a black and white world, you miss the bigger picture, because you're too focused on the details. I wasn't pulling any tricks. You said people with mental illnesses, not just substance problems. Don't even try to back track on your words, buddy, they're right there. Yes, people with substance problems need help. Unfortunately, they are the only ones who can make the call if they actually want help or not. If they don't want it, they're going to just fall back into their old patterns again, no matter how many times they go to rehab. Vilifying and condemning these people does NOTHING to help them. If anything, it probably gives them an excuse to keep doing it. Nothing will drive a person to take part in "degenerate behavior" than people condemning them for it. Hatred is what brings about a LOT of mental disorders, and is absolutely NOT the way to cure them.

    ...excuse me? If you've ever had to deal with mental illness - if it was yourself or someone you know - you wouldn't say that. It isn't as simple as telling someone to go to rehab or see a psychiatrist. You can tell them to do that, but they have to do it on their own. You can't force them to do it. Frankly, I think your posts are becoming increasingly insulting. Never mind your hypocrisy, let's talk about your complete and utter ignorance about substance abuse and mental illnesses in general. You shouldn't hate the person who abuses substances. Just because they do that, it doesn't mean that they are bad people, like you seem to think. My Dad is one of the best people I know, but when he was younger he had a big problem with alcohol. He eventually managed to over come it after I was born, but he did still have that problem. Even when he did, he was still a very smart, funny and nice guy. Hate the sin, not the sinner. Other members of my family and other people I know have also had problems with drugs and alcohol. They aren't bad people because of it. I find it extremely insulting that your attacks have now gone beyond just substance abuse to include ALL mental illnesses in general. I've suffered from anxiety disorders and chronic depression, as have almost half the people in my family. I had an uncle who committed suicide because of it. Other members of my family were bipolar, as are several family friends. I've got friends who have depression, who have cut themselves, classmates who have committed suicide. I know people who were abused, the people who abused them, and the psychological issues that caused them to do it. These sorts of problems aren't simple, they aren't easy to understand, and they certainly aren't as cut and dry as you seem to think they are. Do me a favor: stop condescending people who have problems that you know nothing about. At the very least, take a psychology course to learn about these conditions. Stop talking about it until you know what the hell it is you're talking about.
