    Nothing spells freedom more than busloads of Guatemalans and Hondurans getting a chance to see the Statue of Liberty in person. I hope NY Governor Hochul and NYC Mayor Adams...

    The more pressure on the man, the more likely he will fake it.

    I loved "door games" back in the 80's. Trade Wars was a favorite and became very complex over the years.

    I do that often too. Saying youre welcome sounds like an invitation for me to do it again for you. That's going too far.

    The research did look into why. Top reason is same reason women do it. To make your partner feel like they did a good job.

    People who say "pet peeve". It casts a bad light on pets.

    Men faking orgasms

    This is a thing. Apparently 1 in 4 men have done this, and it isn't exclusive to women. The question of how the men do it comes to mind....

    Can you give me some examples of these people? And how can an atheist be evangelical?

    Where did you get that idea that we blame God? Why would anybody blame an entity they don't believe exists?

    Toxins at dealt with by your kidneys. That and water is all you need. Trendy woo to "flush out toxins" are usually scams and often dangerous.

    I do know someone with cancer. And she is getting amazing care from medical professionals. It is a miracle of science.

    Not all US blacks have the same culture. It's racist of her to generalize them as one.

    Ok, sure, but so what? You consider the freshly fertilized egg the moral equivalent of a 5 year old? If so, why?

    Thing is, stories with liberal social commentary didn't used to always suck. Early Star Trek had both social commentary and entertaining writing.

  31. Jolly Penguin liked Lil Mike's post in the thread Woke Batgirl is so bad, it won’t be released. 100 million down the toilet..

    It's possible. I assume any "woke" project subordinates story to current agenda.

  34. Jolly Penguin replied to the thread Abortion ban amendment shot down in Kansas doesn't bode well for Repubss.

    Yes, and the left's refusal to simply agree its bad to abort just before birth feeds directly into the power of this campaign. Seems like a pretty easy win to me.

  35. Jolly Penguin replied to the thread Abortion ban amendment shot down in Kansas doesn't bode well for Repubss.

    Yes, I agree. And I lean heavily pro-choice myself, though I do recognize some pro-life points.
