    Complain about why you're single here

    Holla. I just wanted to make a dating thread so the lot of you can gush about that cutie you're super excited to meet this weekend, or get black out drunk and tell us all why the sex you're attracted to is no damn good. I'm just curious. What's dating been like for you? I'm more curious about...

    Get gud, n00b

    I thought this could be fun. Basically, just vent your frustrations about gaming with other people. Right now I'm playing Bloodborne on new game +, and one of the things I can't stand is how nobody seems to know how to fight the host of the nightmare. He always one/two shots, and you have to be...

    Your personality as a fictional character.

    Simple concept, really. Tell us which fictional character you think best encapsulates your personality. For those who know each other around here, feel free to offer counter suggestions based on your personal impressions of them, but obviously don't cite a character you know someone might be...

    What do you want for Christmas?

    Pretty straightforward. I asked my boyfriend for two books. The Shock Doctrine and The Dictator's Handbook. I'm going to ask my mother to shop for a jail broke PS3 on ebay. Beyond that, I just want fan merchandise. Namely, studio ghibli plushies.

    On schadenfreude and offensive joke telling.

    I really want to talk about humor with you folks. I think there's a really interesting discussion to be had on which jokes are okay and which jokes aren't. I'm sure most of you are aware that society is moving to push back against overtly racist, sexist, and abliest humor, and for good reason...

    Video game ideas.

    I thought it would be kind of neat to have a thread to discuss game ideas that we would like to see in the future, or perhaps discuss games that we already love but how they could be improved - changes that you would like to see made to them. I understand that monster catching games like pokemon...

    Universal Basic Income?

    Well, the "singularity" might be too heavy or far removed of a topic for people to seriously engage with, but this is a subject that might feel closer to people. Before A.I. gets crazy smart to the point of putting us in petting zoos, it's going to put a lot of people out of work first...

    Should universities require general education courses?

    Before I get started, I want to give a full throated acknowledgement that general education courses are certainly useful and serve a purpose. I don't think any rational person is going to argue that being a well rounded student who knows a fair amount of knowledge about a wide variety of...

    Hey. I was just curious as to what languages everyone speaks here, and to perhaps have this as a thread where we can discuss language/languages as a subject in general, and help other people that are trying to learn a new language if they have questions. I only speak my native tongue English...

    Is the "singularity" sci-fi fantasy or not?

    I made a similar topic awhile back, but it never gained much traction. This topic is so profoundly exciting to me though that I can't help but give it one more try. For those of you that aren't familiar with the term, it was coined by the director of engineering at Google, Ray Kurzweil. It's a...

    Your Howarts House?

    Since there was the announcment of the new book, the poll seemed fitting. I took the super duper official quiz on pottermore twice and was placed into Gryffindor. It even tells you what kind of wand you get. I got Holly wood with a phoenix feather core like Harry Potter because I'm the greatest...

    Philosophy of family?

    I'm sort of bored at the moment, and when I get bored I tend mull over meaningless philosophical questions. One topic of inquiry I wanted to see your opinion on is whether there should be a proper philosophy of family. The word family is a pretty loaded term that has a cornucopia of...

    Review/rate the song above you, and post another.

    I don't know what version number this would be, but I remember liking the last thread because it led me to some cool music. Same rules like last time I guess. Rate the song above you on a scale from 1 to 10, and give at least a one sentence explanation for why you did or didn't like it. I know...

    Nobody likes a do-gooder.

    tl;dr version: complain about self righteous people here. I was reading something pretty interesting today. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-1305716/Nobody-likes-gooder-Study-confirms-selfless-behaviour-alienating.html It got me thinking. Where do you guys draw the line...

    Transhumanism: Will you live long enough to live forever?

    I don't get terribly excited about a great many topics, but this is an area of immense intrigue for me, and I believe it should be for you, too. Before we get the ball rolling, let's take a wack at defining transhumanism. The best and most thorough description I can find is on wikipedia...

    Anti-theism & The Great Accomodationist Debate

    -Approved by bobjr The last thread on religion didn't have as good of a start as it could have, and also seems to have largely run its course. With that said, I'm going to try and take a crack at breathing some new life into the debate. I'm going to be writing from the perspective of...

    Should employers be able to discriminate based on tattoos?

    Bit of a more light hearted debate, but considering I plan on getting inked up pretty soon, I figured I'd bring it up. Basically, I don't really get why it's an acceptable form of discrimination. Unless the tattoos are blatantly obscene or offensive, there should be no problem. The fact that...

    Let's tax churches.

    Why not? Here's a couple reasons why it's a pretty good idea. 1. Organized religion in the United States rakes in billions and billions of dollars every year. On the low end I've seen somewhere around 71 billion and on the high end I've seen around 100 billion. If we taxed churches (and by...

    Making sense out of the crisis in Ukraine.

    With the recent advent of U.S. troops moving into NATO countries, the situation in Ukraine is heating up. Considering that the United States and Russia haven't had this much conflict since the cold war, to put it lightly, it's a pretty big F'n deal. What's going on in Ukraine is fairly...
