Simply put, THC is a DRUG. Too much of ANY drug will cause serious problems. But that's ok, pharmacology doesn't know what its talking about especially in regards to certain narcotic chemicals...(sarcasm)

Just me but I'd prefer he put that money towards campaigning for real national healthcare. Then the gun injuries would be easier to take care of. <,<

Well, somebody had to show up with guns and body armor.... no average pro-Russian person would have done that. Another thing, if they're so pro Russian why don't they go to Russia instead of trying to drag everyone else there with them? The very reason the Ukranian pres got ran out of office was because he wanted to drag everyone else there with him and apparently not enough Ukranians wanted that. There was a reason Ukraine sought independence, apparently it was because they wanted to no be a part of Russia after the old USSR break-up.
This entire situation sucks, because I like China, and I like Russia, but the the governments start acting stupid and fouls it up for the citizens. No matter what anyone says, Putin shouldn't have put a military force on the edge of Ukraine.

I've been saying that Islam's core belief system has always been at fault for all these extremists views, nobody wants to believe it and end up putting their hands over their eyes and ears trying to refuse the proof that has been since the first time mohammed got himself an army to "spread" his beliefs. I'm not surprised at all by Boko Haram's actions.
Women are no more than something for the men to "use" for their own selfish pleasures. Honor killings, persecution and subversion of non-muslims/apostates (and even other muslims that aren't "muslims enough), all to the ends to make themselves feel that their beliefs are the "right" beliefs.
Can't expect good fruit from a bad seed. I.E what do you expect from a religion by a founder who was a bandit king who killed those that didn't follow his personal deluded beliefs and whose crew raped and pillaged while they could?

Chips and beer sound great... But there are many other combos that are much better. I love chips with my sandwich, one of the best combos ever and any drink of your choice.

My biggest question is why are these pro-Russian "protests" involving a more militant aspect of taking over key government buildings instead of plain old riots in the streets? Big difference imho and stinks to high heaven.

I don't qualify as a nerd, but I prefer to categorize myself as a handsome geek. I like computers, anime, manga, and gaming, sci-fi/fantasy etc. but you'll never find me dressed up to go to a comicon/ket or sci-fi convention, and I'd never decorate my home with posters of anime/games/etc. There are many types of "nerds" out there but always beware the crazy ones or overly obsessive types. They'll most likely have other problems relationship wise. Now, back to watching GoT.

I think its because of a variety of things missing during it's time in space probably threw it's bio clock off. Gravity, solar rays filtered through the ozone layer, and the rotational time period between night and day. This kind of helps let us know what would happen if we started to plant seeds on Mars or some other planet in order to terraform. It will sprout quickly and attempt to make seedlings as soon as possible :). This bodes well in that regard.

Just watched this film in the US. Always lots of action packed fun with Marvel, and to top it all off each film ties in with other films in the Marvel universe, so you can't stop watching just one. If you're a marvel movie fan, put this one on your list.

Just another reason the CCP should figure out it's not wanted. While there is nothing the UK can do now since HK always has belonged to China, people of HK know that they're losing their freedoms little by little until they're like the "mainland". They can't take away the knowledge of what it's like to have rights from the generation of HK citizens that grew up with it.

I can hardly tell the difference between some types of rice. Basmati, wild rice, etc all have their own fragrance and flavors due to the nutrients the plants absorb while growing.

I agree with LBW2010. My ex gf wanted me to gain a little bit of cushion on my belly and I had the body of a well oiled machine. I gather that both women and men want someone who is not too skinny, but has "semi-soft" physiques. I know I love curvy voluptuous women, but not overweight. Big difference between pleasantly plump and having fat sag in the wrong places.

As I said before, why get married if you don't really want to commit or even try to work at your marriage? If you just wanna screw around, you don't have to get married to do so.

Can't fight nature (and win) folks. Natural born hermaphrodites (very very few in number and most usually biologically leaning towards male or female.) can claim this title and have all rights to do so. For those that have to go through artificial tinkering to become a hermaphrodite... nature didn't give it to you for a reason. Another case of trying to become something you're not.
I'm waiting for the day when people with GID will be able to have a clone from their genes of the opposite sex, surgically place their brains in the other body and have to deal with the real full blown hormonal situations like menopause, pregnancy, menstruation/ or for men testosterone fluctuations, nocturnal emissions, random aggression etc. Then we'll really see some true reactions to changing one's sex.

Oh for the day when we don't need oil. Good news is people are heavily working on developing alternatives (not without major interference from oil companies of course.)
I am eagerly awaiting the day when the ME nations will be an afterthought and we can leave them on their own to fend for themselves.

Hmm, seems like the sanctions are working. It is also very apparent how many ethnic Russians post here how Putin is in the right while ethnic Ukranians believe exactly the opposite.

I just like women with naturally black and brunette hair. Japanese women obviously aren't the only ones in the world with naturally black hair. As for dying their hair brown/red or w/e I still can't comprehend why women do it except they feel like "change".
Posted in: Black hair represents the original beauty and strength of Japanese women. Although it gives the impression of being striking and strong, it also projects an image of classic and elegant femininity.

Amazing that my Ukranian co-worker is staunchly opposed to Yanukovich's actions while "in office" and his jailing of political opposition. We've seen a democratically elected head of state start turning into an oppressive dictator before. Remember Egypt? Remember Syria? Same difference.

I'm not going to join in the Pro/con death penalty part. My only concern is this "circumstantial" evidence instead of concrete, factual, beyond a shadow of a doubt evidence that solidly implicates the person being accused. Without that a death penalty should not be on the table.

While I agree Abe should be more diplomatic and level headed in his approach, I don't believe that allowing J-corporations that only care about how much money they're making to keep feeding the PRC machine money so they can (and are proving) that they will use their economic "growth" and "power" to force other Asian nations under their "control".
