    I'll agree with this to a point, but I still think that we are genetically driven at times. I don't understand it, but there are certain things that are in our hard wiring.

    Oi! May I please complain about men fiddling with things - and messing up the settings on my heater - without people starting a debate on principles?

    I kind of jumped in at the end of this conversation here and I enjoy this comment immensely without having the context of it.
    I wrote a poem on a leaf and it blew away...

    Not necessarily. Public forum. Debates happen. It's fun. We can't all be Ned Flanders all the time.

    I just found out that Miley Cyrus covered Smells Like Teen Spirit. If ever there were confirmation of atheism that is it. The world has officially ended. Thus has sounded the seventh trumpet of the apocalypse.

    I know. She is the antithesis of Cobain. Her covering that song is a travesty.

    Nor do I. I still can't believe it. Someone around her, some friend or label representative, should have told her straight up that she was going too far. Up next, Justin Bieber's new cover version of Like A Rolling Stone. Enjoy.
