    Well, the fact is we're all going to have to check in at one of these "hotels" sooner or later, and we won't be checking out.

    Just watched the Ghostbusters:Video game "movie". It had everything one could ask for. It is supposedly the Ghostbusters 3, just interactive. It also had that witty humour that we know and love. Worth watching if you have the chance!

    Watching Walter Peck get possessed is hilarious! And the in game dialogue is really worth hearing as Ramis was still alive to do voice overs for the game.

    I'll probably waste money to see this anyways. But I'm not expecting much. I think the one thing I'm going to stick to the idiot writers for this screenplay is they didn't seem to comprehend that Ghostbusters 1&2 weren't just about comedy, but about WITTY comedy!

    Two of my favorite lines in the previous film.

    "Oh, no thank you, I think you have at least two people inside you already...."

    And,

    "Next time someone asks you if you're a god Ray, say YES!"

    I'd be shocked if they had something even close to that.

    Now I want to bang my head against a wall until maybe I suffer so much brain damage or good enough concussion that I won't comprehend pointless articles like this.

    We've got nothing on nature. Nature helped our species survive, but even should human beings drag ourselves to extinction, nature will always recover with or without us. Wild animals surviving a nuclear meltdown? No surprise there TBH.

    I'll give them some credit for realizing the problem in internal for their religious-political belief system. As it was mentioned quite a while ago, Islam needs to reform itself. Other's outside aren't able to do it. They still need to look at the actions of their founder and acknowledge where it all went wrong.

    Women like dressing up not just for their SO, but for themselves. I once asked a girl I dated why she bought some really sexy lingerie she presented herself in, and she said she thought it looked cute. As a guy it's hard for me not to enjoy seeing women in their undergarments, nighties, and other lacy doodles. But I've never had to buy it for them. They'd get it of their own accord. And I must say I do like their own personal choices.

    They are definitely adorable... just have to handle with care. Lot's of care.

    Some very good posts here, and yes, High school is important. The best paying jobs now require the most basic understanding of a lot of the things this young lady thought she didn't need to learn.

    I know I use a lot of math formulas to do my own taxes, manage my budget, and plan well ahead in life. As for science, just the little basic understanding I was taught in HS did help me become curious about certain things in life, plus I learned to comprehend physics and other natural laws that are in every day life.

    English/Japanese, or w/e native language one has, is needed to know how to write/type and communicate with others without sounding like a nitwit. Plus it helps when learning different languages and how each one has it's own set of grammar rules.

    While some folks think the responses she received were too harsh, I say "nay". Because when she is forced to deal with the real world on her own, it will be nowhere as considerate nor polite when she does something wrong.

    I wouldn't sue the flight school, I'd sue the employers. Pretty misguided thinking here.

    Amazing how there used to actually be progressive Republicans back in the day.... waaaaay back in the day. They'd probably be considered moderate independents these days.

    The GOP is clearly the dark side of the FORCE!! In fact I think the next Star Wars flick could use the GOP & Dems "leadership" races & turn it into a Star Wars flick! Star Wars XX : Rise of the GOP Menace!

    Darth Cruz, Darth Kasich, Darth Trump will try to become the next empirical Sith lord to expand the GOP(Galactic Ominipotence Politburo) empire to control the galaxy! Amazing how fitting those titles fit them XD.

    "Casual" use of a highly addictive<< narcotic still results in addiction and alteration of the brain chemistry. even if someone takes a highly addictive<< narcotic once, they have less than 9% chance of not becoming addicted. Take note of the Highly addictive<< term. No matter how you want to slice the end result is the same. All it needs is 1 use.

    I never thought I'd say this, but I hope NK would finally cross the line so they can be dealt with permanently. Pull it off quick like a Band-Aid! I just want it over with.

    And yet you still haven't perceived the consequences. I live in CO with legalized weed. It's been a year so far, and it's still not bringing as much of that "magical taxed income" as many believed it would. Still having problems that were predicted with illegal street sellers, (who are selling their weed for cheaper prices than stores), still dealing with criminal organizations trying to seem "legit" and fake licenses to sell the MJ. On top of that lots of money laundering, tax evasion etc and then the recreational users just completely ignoring the public usage and DUI laws.

    Also the other thing you've missed, and I've told this to another advocate earlier, are you willing to pay for the rehab and mental health centers that will need more funding to take care of addicts that are too mentally FUBAR to ever be well again? The majority of narcotics screw people up permanently because it messes with the brain chemistry and how it functions properly. No matter how small a dose you give them, it does what its supposed to do which is mess with the brain. Depending on how much and how often each individual user does it the end result is you get a mentally disabled individual sooner or later.

    And either you'll end up with them on the street, or you'll have to re-open sanitariums all on the tax-payers dime because even the perceived "taxing of narcotics" will not be enough to cover that. And certain people in the US aren't even willing to put any of their taxed dollars towards a nationalized health care system, what makes you think they'd be willing to pay for the care of some fool's choice to hard narcotics?

    Addicts they can't work, they can't earn a stable income to keep up their habit, and they're much more likely to turn to other criminal activities to keep some kind of money coming in.

    One young man I talked with said being high was like having all the light bulbs in your brain turn on at once, to which I replied, "if you keep them all on all the time they're eventually going to burn out". And for a fact they can't be replaced.

    My aunt is one of them. Used enough illicit drugs, and can barely keep herself together even with medication (which is being paid by the state of CA) because somehow she was able to get on disability from her own self-inflicted brain damage and she's still screwing up even that. One of my co-workers lost one of her good friends mental health to meth, and she stated that she used to be a very smart woman making $250k+ a year, now she's making squat, on the streets homeless.

    No matter how much "control" you perceive one can get from "legalizing" it, there are going to be unforeseen consequences. And I'm pretty sure the Feds aren't going to support such a thing because losing able bodied working adults whom you can tax in the workforce. Instead losing them to addiction and having to revert from earning taxes, to having to pay taxes to take care of them is not on their list of how to manage an effective and economically viable and healthy growth of a workforce. Think hard about that...

    Every time I see this, I wonder why NK is still around.... c'mon man... There should only be one Korea and obviously not with any remnants of the NK nutters around.

    We even had to sleep in a car, in a mission....and I still made it through college - without any assistance. I WORKED a LOT.

    Wow, you had a car? Holy crap, you had it better off than me when I was homeless xD... what I would have given to sleep in my own car instead of looking for some reasonable safe out of sight place to put down the sleeping bag I had.
