    I only use a fork.

    Cultural table manners

    When eating spaghetti(which I rarely do), I just use my fork. I never use a spoon, although I guess that's "proper". I never use a knife, either. I just use my fork to cut it and pick it up/wind it. I do not do any shoveling! :p My maternal grandmother has always been big on table manners...

    Religion Anti-Religious Threads. Alternate views.

    Freedom of speech, religious beliefs, "hide" functions, censorship, etc. aside, this has come down to two members making their spat a public spectacle. It's ridiculous. And also, why should the administrators make drastic changes to this forum to appease two members who can't seem to get...

    Religion Anti-Religious Threads. Alternate views.

    In one way, I really hate to see this thread, as it is a rebuttal to a rebuttal thread, and all these rebuttals are making me dizzy. It's so much like the petty behavior when you are mad at someone you're right next to, and you use a third party to do the talking for you, even though every word...

    Don't ignore the 'ignore list'.

    There has to be some kind of limits in a forum like this. This is not just some free for all. I think it's a fend for yourself type thing, mostly. It's upon yourself to act in a mature manner. I mean, it seems most of us are past the grammar school playground stage. N'est-ce pas? Thomas &...

    Religion How do Religions Impose their Beliefs and Cause Harm?

    I have said this before, and I know I'm going to sound diplomatic, like I usually do, but... I do take the "live and let live" approach. As long as people do not try to force their beliefs on me, and treat me with respect, I don't care what they believe. If it makes them feel better about...

    Smoke Pot, Yes or No?

    I used to smoke MJ all day, every day for a few years. I'm not exaggerating, either. I would stay up all night taking bong hits and doing shotguns, sucking on a hooka, rolling joints, loading bowls. It never stopped. My best friend had a pound under her bed at all times, selling it out of...

    Religion Skeptic Quotes on Religion and the Bible

    I'm loving those George Carlin quotes. Well, all of these quotes. It's sort of ironic that a lot of people I know claim Thomas Jefferson as their great founding father, but yet, they support the Ten Commandments being put up in a courthouse or learning about Jehovah in school. If you know...

    Question Smoking poll, do you smoke?

    I have smoked on and off since I was about 18(freshman at college). I bought my first pack of cigarettes at 14, but I never really inhaled... :p Anyway, I go through phases. I'll start smoking, smoke for a few months, and then quit for a year. I've been on the longest smoking streak that...

    What kind of cheese do you like to put on your pasta ?

    I always buy a block of parmesan cheese and grate it on my pasta. I love it. Cheese is one of my favorite foods. Gruyere is, by far, my favorite cheese. I always have a block of it in my refrigerator. I think I'll grate it on my pasta next time! Good thread, Maciamo. I love my cheese! :p

    Kudos for Tsuyoiko! Once again, she's summed up how I feel perfectly. I think we were separated at birth, Tsuyoiko! :p

    American English: Regional Dialects?

    I definitely have a southern accent, but I try to use proper English. Well, most of the time. It depends on who I'm around. I call my mother and father "Mama and Daddy", I call one grandma "Me-Ma" and one grandma "Nana". I call a sandwich like that a "sub". I say "y'all" all the time, don't...

    Who Will Become The Next Superpower?

    I have been thinking China for a few years now. It just seems they're getting more and more powerful economically. Not to mention all the manpower they have. I just get a feeling they're up to something big.

    What is your favourite American TV series ?

    M*A*S*H is a great show. My dad loved it too, and I remember watching it with him when I was very young, maybe three and four years old. I watch it on Hallmark Channel sometimes now because it brings back good memories. I love Hawkeye!
