I LOVE SMOOTHIES lol................ OH MONEY MONEY MONEY!!! lol
The dog was OK. Turns out he didn't come that far. They were here on a trip and the dog got away from them and got hit. They sure were happy to see him back.
AWWWW thats good.... porr doggy i remember when my dogs ran away and they were gone for like 3 days i thought they were dead i cried and cried.... and then we made posters and coz we couldnt find pictures, we drew them... and gave em to my dad in the morning to photo copy at work. and as he opened the door to go to work the dogs were there... they got in SO much trouble but they havent run away since i dont think
@ Indy: Good to know that the dog's all right!
I would never let my dog outside without his leash. He loved to run through the neighbourhood and dig holes in our neighbours' gardens when he was about three months old
Had to chase after him for 2 hours till I finally got the little devil
My dog died last week ; ;
He was 19 though- had a good run, despite having no teeth.
RIP little Jack Russel Terrier.
I had a dog, more specifically a sharpae. It kept chewing through every leash we had given her. Eventually, it's leash turned into a thick half an inch rope. Then it chewed throuh that. Then we used a metal cable, but it chewed through that. Then my father chained it with a quarter inch thick steel chain, and guess what? She chewed through that too. I used to run around the neighbourhood catching her and carrying her back home. But she was kinda heavy to haul around. I was only like 6 to 8 years old as I had her, but then I moved with my father to another island and the dog stayed with my grandmother.
Its was really more politics/sociology than economics.
Had to put down both my dogs several years ago. One due to a wound getting infected after a dog fight...the other due to old age (it was suffering a lot)
LDH: It's not economics....<_<
Crusader: But we all know...even though communism is about equality...we still have one guy at the top =]
Who's going to play you in the movie?
Not neccesarily, the idea of communism does ascribe to a central leadership which is its inherent flaw, It is about the workers wrestling control from the central government and establishing a communist society, but marx forgot to do the details on exactly how to run a communism society besides workers controlling hte means of production. Without a central system its impossible to regulate the distribution of resources in a manner than is fair/equal according to roles in society, Thus, the only firm mention of centralised leadership in the communist theory is in the dismantling of the centralised capitalist leadership in favour of communism. But communism itself is a grey blur when considering its own leadership.
Which is one of the problems, in a system that requires so much regulation, when you have someone in a position of power, it makes it very easy for them to exploit the system, and its very appealing to do so as reprimand is less likely. So in most cases central leadership tends to be the main flaw in any communist society.
As ive said, communism is just a theory, in theory it works but practically its never proven fruitful because it i inherently flawed its its very ideas. It neglects the logistics which leave it open to exploitation. It is optimistic on the nature of humanity, that everyone wants equality, when the truth is, people are the same, politics dont tend to change very much at all, society has remained the same along the entire course of human history, only evolving to meet the needs as the world adapts around us. Marx thought that it was a natural evolution to go from feudalism to capitalism to communism, but he was an idiot, communism is a huge difference devoit of evloution of the same principal. Its a completely seperate line of reasoning, thats why it doesnt work.
People stay the same, its the world that changes, Marx didnt realise that, which is why communism will never work.
Well....people do change aswell. The changing world is because people change, since people affect the world.
No, people develop technology etc. Affecting the world isnt change in the sense i was describing, the basic nature of mankind is what doesnt change.
You can mistake versitility for change, human beings are capable of great and terrible things, and their flexibility is a reliable and predictable thing. Humans dont evolve over time to be more one way, mankind hasnt been getting better or worse, our best and worst sides are constantly shown over time.
Mankind is versitile, and predictably fluctuous, dont mistake that for change.
As the world develops we just develop better ways to do things, but still the motivation behind doing them is the whim of the creator, which is what will nevrer change.
Pretty deep conversation for the young folks home
*whispers*....It's an oldie....
Who says young folks can't be deep?
It's not pretty deep k-shar....you been reading the Old Folks thread haven't you?
It's just a lot more childish
It's all my fault I said damn them the capitalists! damn me! Me and my big mouth!
Damn you anyway
That's not very nice Met.
It's nice to have an intelligable conversation now and then... just illustrates once again our superiority over those old foggies. I think they've all finally gone senile.
