  1. ha. it's fun to come on here when I'm drunk and troll the self-righteous libertarians who take themselves too seriously. but yeah, keep the government out of environmental issues. fun little notion to kick around, too bad it has no bearing on reality.
  2. yeah, it's difficult to clear skin viruses from warm, wet orifices such as vaginas. I was just saying that most of the drama/stress comes from fearmongering. It's extremely uncommon for anyone to actually need surgery (in a medical sense) for HPV, the vast majority of "operations" to remove warts are purely elective. As far as I can tell wart causing strains are separate from cancer causing strains. Some people get it worse than others, but the funny thing is that most people (very likely including you, statistically speaking) have or have had some strain of HPV. Men are not tested for it, the only way to know is if you have a wart causing strain that manifests symptoms. Stigmatization doesn't help anyone here, it just causes drama.
  3. I sure hope Duke loses to Cal, but I don't know why the hell you'd put that on your bracket.
  4. Wow. You're so smart dude. Please enlighten me. I don't get Libertarian philosophy, I'm so brainwashed I just can't understand it! I'm a government dupe! I've been reading the wrong books this whole time. The Lord of the Rings was just a Libertarian allegory. Fuck. Does it validate your ego to feel intellectually disenfranchised?
  5. There are hundreds of HPV strains. Most of them don't affect your genitals. Among the ones that do, wart causing strains are pretty much completely benign, while strains that do not cause warts have been linked to higher rates of cervical cancer. Over 50% of sexually active human beings are exposed to genital HPV at some time. It is a myth that HPV stays with you forever, many (if not most) HPV infections are eliminated by the body within a few years. Warts can be persistent but are usually not excessive, unless you have a highly deficient immune system. Treatment for warts is usually much more unpleasant than the warts themselves. Some doctors see treatment of warts (genital and otherwise) as a purely cosmetic procedure. In conclusion, this thread is full of morons, and it's no wonder that those who have had HPV warts don't share that fact with every partner they have. The shit is practically harmless.
  6. Al Gore is a politician. He is not a scientist. Nor is he exactly a businessman. He does, however, travel the world researching and raising awareness of environmental issues he believes to be absolutely critical as well as emerging sustainable technologies. I keep hearing vague allusions to Gore having a "big house with all the lights on" and "flying in personal jets" etc. etc. blah blah blah. I suppose it's a question of moral purity (which in my opinion is beside the point), but you can frame it this way: would you kill one man to save millions of lives? Gore probably sees his own resource usage as a necessary evil in his goal of spreading the gospel of sustainability. In terms of resources he counts as much more than one person, since he is such a figurehead. His resource usage comes with the territory. He could not accomplish his goals without flying around in jets. Also, if you really care so much about the guy's house, you can just do a little internet search and find out that the Gore's installed solar panels and a geothermal system along with some other stuff to make it more efficient. I personally don't give a shit how big of a house he's got. Nope. He ran for president. He has a shitload of money and global clout. That sure as hell sounds like a bigger playing field than us regular guys are on. Now you contradict yourself. It sure seems like he's trying to make significant change. People are talking about him and what he's doing all over the world. Knocking public figures might make you feel smart, but get your head out of your own ass and give the guy the benefit of the doubt. He's not that bad. Edit: Also, Gore doesn't primarily preach individual action to live sustainably. Like I said before, he is involved at the level of government/industry. I agree with this approach, I think reform must be primarily top-down. He is trying to help pass legislative reform and help emerging 'clean' energy industries get a leg up. This is something you small-government types might not understand.
  7. ^The polar bear community is disappointed by your ignorance.
  8. It's OK to admit you're wrong sometimes, casek. Though I guess they say conspiracy theorists tend to be too narcissistic for that...
  9. For sure, I figured it'll get better it's just annoying to not really get a leg workout from them. And it affects the next time I hit bench, which is a pain. I'm curious about creatine as well, although I don't think I'll ever use the stuff. I stick to whey protein.
  10. ...and? Which decline? How are tree-ring density records affected and what exactly are the tree-ring density records indicative of? This sounds like a certain method of analysis is only accurate within a certain time period. Doesn't sound unusual. Nothing here indicates funny business. I'm baffled that you can't see how much you're reading into this "evidence."
  11. Ha I'm saying the crossover grip kills my shoulders. To the point that I can't put enough weight on there to get much of a workout. But it's the lesser of two evils. The clean grip had my wrists fucked up for a few days.
  12. Casek, none of what you just posted proves anything unless you provide a LOT more context. Your assumptions are hemorrhaging right through your meager 'evidence.' Thank you, I've been saying this for a while. I have a lot of respect for scientists and this amateur-climatologist/conspiracy-nut bullshit pisses me off. It reminds me of some fat slob in the stands trying to heckle a pro athlete...
  13. Who here does front squats? I've been doing back squats for a long time, and I'm trying to start rotating front squats in every other week or so, but if I put anything over 135 on there that shit rapes my shoulders. I have pretty beefy shoulders too, but it still hurts like hell. I tried the clean grip but it was killing my wrists so I've been using the crossover grip. Any advice?
  14. Sorry dude, but your tin foil hat is showing again...
  15. The point is Al Gore addresses issues at the level of industry/government. If he was some grassroots community organizer trying to get his neighbors to ride bicycles and compost, then he would be a huge hypocrite. But Gore is a big name on the big stage, trying to support sustainable energy and environmentalism on a global scale. I'm not gonna get into whether dude is "right" or not in what he's doing, but calling him a hypocrite is some pretty watery mud to sling.
