Cynical? Maybe.

A place to debate issues or to rant about what's on your mind. In addition to discussions about historical fiction, books, the publishing industry, and history, discussions about current political, social, and religious issues and other topics are allowed, so those who are easily offended by certain topics may want to avoid such threads. Members are expected to keep the discussions friendly and polite and to avoid personal attacks on other members. The moderators reserve the right to shut down a thread without warning if they believe it necessary.

Foreign relations= politics.

Hard work, luck, and/ or security= cash.

Sex= Yes, please. If you're celibate, I apologize. Sex is a dirty thing. It should only be used to reproduce.

I am just a series of cells that randomly came together to form a living organism. I will simply become dust upon death. That is all. By the way, I'm hungry. Let's order out tonight.= Atheism

Fear, differences, ignorance, hatred= Racism

Fighting, violence, killing each other because we're mad about something, and/ or beating each other up= Senseless and/ or war (What is it good for? Absolutely nothing.)

We're the only intelligent lifeforms in the universe= arrogance.

Women only want a man who can provide financially and/ or sexually= Fiction and Non-fiction.

Men only want a woman who can provide (sorry, I just got an email about College Coeds Part XVI). I forgot my point= Non-Fiction.

I was staying at an upscale hotel. The morning news was doing a story about 4-year olds addicted to smoking cigarettes (with video images). I was watching during breakfast in the dining room. I commented to the three employees at the front desk, "That's pretty crazy, huh?" They all said, "No, that's normal these days. We see it all the time."= Reality or The Twilight Zone? You decide.

Children, that are career criminals, being arrested and released to their uncle who was recently released on his own recognizance because their mother will be incarcerated until Tuesday. Their father loves them and spends time with them once a week.= ?

Anthropomorphism= Common, understandable, yet still a bit strange.

I'm going to be cryogenically frozen and also cloned, so I can keep coming back like Arnold in that movie= My father saying, "Okay, but don't bring me back with you."

Hi Martin. I don't think you're cynical but I do wonder whether you were hoping to start a debate or this was a rant. Nice to meet you. Do you get a lot of jokes about the Back To The Future movies?
