  1. I like my bike... but I have a flat tire... and it's a slow leak.

     

    It's bleeding hard to ride your bike in 35 degrees, with a humidex to 42.

     

    I must go buy a new bike wrench so I can get my rear tire off and replace the inner tube... Any body know what I can do with a dead inner tube, I feel it's wasteful to throw away all that rubber.

     

    Peace


  2. Wow you kids are young ;)

     

    I got into MG grade 9, with Underdogs... Deep Six is an awesome track. Apparitions is a great track to.

     

    I remember going to see Matt when Zuckerbaby opened for him (tour for Beautiful Midnight... or after it came out, before Audio came out)

     

    Peace


  3. technically there is no such thing as an un-bias report ;)

     

    But that is rather interesting... I just wonder what lengths Mr. Moore is willing to go to, to make money. It's interesting to consider, would he become that which he despises for money?

     

    Ironically, I don't think that even star-trek has true removal of product value. The system is not clearly explained: Picard does mention in First Contact, to the one woman, that in the future there is no money "We work to better ourselves". But when you consider information presented in Deep Space Nine, it's not entirely clear: other races obviously have a monetary system. Looking a Voyager, the crew trades food rations and holodeck time, which in turn makes these things the currency.

     

    Wow, double coverage...

     

    Peace


  4. To any body interested in some music that is outrageously skillful, and a little heavy, check out Dream Theater.

     

    Some of there music is a little bit of wanking (just showing off hardcore) but otherwise it's good.

     

    I would like to post some tracks, but I don't have space on my webpage folder, I'll maybe make up some sample that will up load (my two favorite tracks are over 13:00 minutes).

     

    official site: http://www.dreamtheater.net

  5. trading doesn't forgo the consumist attitude, it still places a value on items... it also requires that you have something to trade, but that's not strictly true for everybody. Monetary systems provide a mechanism for people to trade services (or skills).

  6. Socialism... In communism, the state owns everything, in socialism nobody owns anything (or everybody owns everything if you will).

     

    You can't remove money... which is why these systems fail. Things must have value. It is harder for the car dealer to share his wares, then it is for the grocer.

     

    Peace


  7. Anything can be interpreted as sex...

     

    In contexts:

     

    "

    ...

    we'll see if I'm leaking,

    push and push till it hurts

    ...

    picking up chick when they,

    push and push till it hurts

    ...

    we'll see if I'm leaking

    push and push till it hurts

    ...

    now I work me the night shift,

    well I,

    push and push till it hurts,

    pull and pull till it hurts

    ...

    "

     

    Only the second one is possibly sex. Get your minds out of the gutter!!

     

    Peace


  8. That is just dirty Anton...

     

    At least buy them dinner first ;)

     

    If I ever get out to BC I'd meet up with any of you guys on this board... but that won't be for a few years... even better, because then we can go for a beer... mmmm beer

     

    Peace


  9. Is there actually a passage in the bible that directly refers to homosexuality?

     

    I am familiar with the story of Sodom and Gomorra (please forgive spelling), which refers to God destroying to twin cities for their many and repeated sins (which does actually make reference to homosexuality... or more accurately that men wish to 'know' other men)

     

    Peace


  10. Unfortunately Big Oil will be the cause of our demise. The technology and ideas have been around for the past 20 years of developing clean alternatives. Big Oil has stopped all the research at every turn. When there is no more oil, even though we have the technology, and concepts, the lack of electricity will hinder research and manufacture. It's not as bad as it seems though: Electric vehicles do exist, and have been proven very effective (the entire british rail system is electric, not to mention french bullet trains). Once the world stigma about nuclear power disappears (which would happen rapidly in a post oil world), then power generation becomes a none issue. All in all, the decline of oil will result is a cleaner environment.

     

    As a side note, the loss of oil will only effect us in our vehicles (Canada has a lot of green power). You do have to consider though: even though we see this problem, we are still wasteful of oil. Think how many kilometers you drive a month.

     

    Peace
