    let's talk about: spirituality

    whats interesting about these discussions is that so often people come to a conclusion along the lines of science and religion being mutually exclusive, when they may be completely complimentary. i took a class that was based entirely around the debate of science 'vs' religion and if anything it has made me less sure of what i believe. i guess i kind of believe that science and religion offer two completely different (yet complimentary) ways of viewing and knowing the world. i agree that science is incredibly powerful in helping to understand the universe, however i think religion is equally powerful in helping people to understand themselves. a good example i remember someone making was "if you had a gun, scientific experiments could tell you absolutely everything about what would happen physically if you were to shoot a fellow experimentor, but it couldn't offer any insight into whether or not it is morally right to pull the trigger." i guess that's where religion (theoretically) takes up the slack, in ethical and moral guidance. i'm not sure if this sounds totally clear but i think its an interesting argument for the two being complimentary. another interesting point is that a lot of scientists are actually devoutly religious. i remember reading an article by a biochemist who also happened to be a priest. in the article he said something to the effect that when you start to see the complexity and order at the molecular level and atomic level, it just seems too perfect to have been by chance. i'd recommend "the tao of physics" to anyone who finds this stuff interesting; it draws a lot of parallels between eastern philosophy and modern subatomic physics. sorry this is all really disjointed and what not but it's fun stuff to think about

    Automatic or Stick

    i hate how in a lot of automatics just taking your foot off the break will make the car start moving forward. get a manual.. its nice to have that much control over the car. granted it depends on what you're using it for, but the only people i've ever heard say that automatics are better than sticks are the ones who can't drive stick. i'm sure you'll like it once you learn

    Lost in Translation

    i dont get why people knocked the story so much.. i thought it was good.. it wasn't anything extraordinary in that nothing extraordinary happened, but i thought it felt complete. i think someone said it before but it really was just two 'lost souls' connecting, which was very interesting, at least to me. maybe it's that i felt i could relate to that, the feeling of being lost and then finding something or someone that reignites a sort of passion or interest in life.

    Optical Camouflage

    its just showing the theory behind it.. like how it would potentially work, their ideas for it. of course its still a ways away, but its interesting that this might be a reality sometime soon. http://www.wired.com/wired/archive/11.08/p..._invisible.html

    are you sure that's the same guy who was hit in the video? there's a picture of him on the last page of the article and he looks completely different.

    flower of flesh and blood

    who knows what i'm referring to? holy fucking shit... i don't know why i'm even posting this. this is so fucked up, but for some reason i was intrigued reading about it. i only read about it and i was freaked out. (if you don't know what i'm talking about, it's some japanese horror-gore movie from the eighties, basically a really fucked up fake snuff movie) here's the page.. but SERIOUSLY only look at it if you don't mind seeing some really disturbing shit.. seriously. http://www.guineapigfilms.com/flower.html

    Blaine Emerges After 44 Days in Box

    tv for one. i'm not sure if this is the case for this one, but i remember for some of his other acts they had tv specials and videos for sale. and mapo you have a good point, and i recognize it is a major flaw in my opinion. maybe it is just me, and this specific act, but it just gets me that this one is about starvation. it seems like this culture is already fucked up about food in general, this strikes me as just another facet of that.

    Blaine Emerges After 44 Days in Box

    i guess you didnt get that my post was kind of tongue in cheek. i'm not saying it's not impressive that he went 44 days without food. however, its kind of a slap in the face for a lot of people when a westerner who has always had food to eat starves himself as (more or less) a publicity stunt. david blane is a performer, and a good performer too, but i think this is the wrong thing to 'perform' about. do you honestly think he did this to achieve some sort of spiritual enlightenment or knowledge? i know my post sounded pretty crude, sorry if it offended. and when i said 'hes in the position to do something good for those less well off,' what i meant is that there's a huge amount of money being generated by his acts, doesn't it seem kind of ironic that so much is going to be made off of him starving himself, and yet nothing is really accomplished in the end?

    Blaine Emerges After 44 Days in Box

    this just seems kind of obscene. congradulations on being an asshole, david blaine. why not go to somalia to learn 'how strong we are as human beings.' there are people there who are starving without getting payed for it. wow. he willed himself into not eating for 44 days. granted, that's impressive, but considering starvation is still a large problem in the world, fuck your illusions and 'inspirational experiences.' he's in the position to do something good for people less well off, let's see that happen. how about pulling a sandwich out of your ear.:rolleyes:
