Well it depends on where you live. Are there any areas of natural beauty close to you?
2013-02-01 07:02:15 on Any happy inlove people on here?
Well I have been with my sweetie for about 8 months now. I guess we haven’t been together for that long because everything is still quite fresh, sharing our interests with each other (some have become mutual interests now) but I do whatever I can to make her smile. She has the most beautiful smile I have ever seen :)
2013-02-01 06:10:33 on WHY does God still allow cancer and Alzheimer’s and heart disease and other dread diseases?
Personally I think this kind of debate is ridiculous, after all comparing people killed by cigarettes and guns is just ludicrous. With the regulations against smokers (banning their advertising, not allowing people to light up inside public places, shock pictures on the packaging, etc.) Smokers know before hand what they are getting into and accept the risks of their actions. This is not true of the victims of gun violence.
As for abortions, I wholeheartedly agree that women should be allowed to have control over their own bodies, however there should be far better education into birth control and also a lot better access to contraceptives because this bulls**t of abstinence only education just doesn’t work at all.
Oh and Dr Jackson, I completely agree that having stricter punishments on rapists is an excellent idea, I would however say that the death penalty isn’t that good. If a rapist is put to death for rape it will indeed decrease the number of reported rapes per year however I would say that the number of victims who are also murdered after the rape has been committed would also increase, after all the person is going to death row anyway, why not just kill their victim too? It could increase their chances of getting away and if they do get caught then there is no more severe punishment than they would already receive.
Oh and I also agree that people who falsely accuse someone of rape should be punished harshly, because of their lie they have likely ruined someone else’s life and deserve far more than just a slap on the wrist

[quote BuckingFastard (J.N)]I won’t dance, it’s because I’ve refused to have a first dance that he’s strated talking about doing something different or a reception.
I suggested eloping, we went to Cuba a while back & they did weddings there, it was gorgeous, i said we could do that, but he doesn’t want to, i get his point, his dad wouldn’t be able to fly that far so his parents couldn’t come, and my parents won’t travel anywhere, they’ve never left the UK, so mine wouldn’t come either.
Vegas - the same problem about our parents wouldn’t come, that was slightly the attraction to me when i suggested it, I don’t want all my family at the wedding, so that would be a good excuse.

[quote iyamah]So tanks, drones, bombers are ok for the government to have because they can be more secretive when they screw up but the public as in the responsible/coherent adults can’t have the right to own their weapons. You should ask yourself how much of your tax dollars does those millitary toy weapons cost .[/quote]
I’m just saying that from my own personal experience that i have never found a need for the pubic to have access to guns. I know all too well the damage they cause when they get into the wrong hands. I’m from Northern Ireland and was around when the terrorism from the IRA was still very bad. I can honestly say that i would have not felt safer with access to a gun and cannot think of a genuine reason why anyone should have access to them.
2013-01-04 09:29:27 on Little old lady.
That’s amazing :P

If you are coming to the UK come and visit Northern Ireland :3 we’re sort of the Black Sheep of the UK but our little part of the island is beautiful

[quote Tictactomm]So, the government is going to kill you unless you kill… them first? With semi automatic rifles? Does this sound crazy, or am I that naive?
If everyone has semi automatic weapons, everyone will be safe and only use them in self defense? Does this sound crazy, or are you that naive?[/quote]
It does indeed sound crazy. If the government was going to kill you some semi automatic rifles wouldn’t really stop the tanks, drones and bombers that the military has at it’s disposal. Personally i do believe that if everyone had guns things would be far worse than they already are because far more of the mentally deranged would gain access to them.

[quote BIG AL ONE.]
You don’t need guns - oh, for the sake of the children.
Well, Hitler killed plenty of children too. . .[/quote]
You know putting aside godwin’s law. It doesn’t explain why most of the civilized world doesn’t need semi automatic weapons in the hands of the public. Why should America be an exception
2013-01-03 04:58:45 on Gun control.
Drat, i should proofread before i send stuff. I mean that why would anyone outside of those professions need guns at all. Most of the world seems to get on alright with the public having no access to guns.
2013-01-03 04:56:54 on Gun control.
No idea why you would ever need anything like that in the hands of the public. I actually get confused why anyone outside of professions such as farmers, hunters, military and police would actually need weapons like that

Nice to see that even though i clearly specified in my post that i was not interested in pirating the software users have still come in and mentioned it.
Just goes to show that some don’t actually read the post before offering their “help”
No point of keeping this open so just going to close it
