    A college admissions test should be designed to differentiate the intellectual abilities of the test takers, not make the test designers feel good about themselves.

    It’s a shame that Purdue football hasn’t been doing well recently. Would be nice to have tailgating at the Old Oaken Bucket game.

    You know why the hipster burnt his tongue? He drank his coffee before it was cool.

    Pride is self praise while ignoring the gifts God gave… Look how awesome I am, how all my hard work built me this amazing house, how I did it all by myself, how successful I am because of my talents that I developed….

    Which is different than loving your country; I’m proud to be American because this country is so great and I’m grateful for the sacrifices others made and the blessings God gave us…. much different.

    You’ve got a large group of people that proudly identify with their sexual sin, that is to say they’re unrepentant sinners. Why does the church have to change its fundamental beliefs on the dignity of the human being – which covers many more aspects about sexuality and sin than just homosexuality – just to include more unrepentant sinners.

    Homosexuality is wrong in the same way that premarital sex, extramarital sex, masturbation, contraception, abortion, divorce and pornography are all wrong. The underlying belief doesn’t single out any one of these – we are all called to be chaste, that sexuality is a beautiful gift from God for the purpose to “be fruitful and multiply.” Each one of these sins is selfish and abuses the gift that God gave us.

    *** dilectione hominum et odio vitiorum
    (Love the sinner and hate the sin)
    -St. Augustine

    That’s too funny.

    @Eastinfection

    What about being tall? When you recline, you hit my knees because they don’t recline. When you drop your seat back quickly, you’re likely to break my kneecaps.

    “As a result, you have people who want to make use of the reclining seats which they PAID for”

    I pay for my tray table too, why do you get to take that away from me?

    I pay rent for my apartment. Does that mean I get to blast the stereo at 3 a.m.? I mean, I paid for my lease. That entitles me to do whatever I want within my apartment, right?

    I fly for work. Most of my flights are under 2 hours, on regional jets. My knees are always up against the seat in front of me when I fly. Excuse me if I’m upset because the person in front of me decides they need to recline and smashes their seat back into my knees.

    This isn’t about “rights,” it’s about common decency.

    Going to correct you ISRAELISOURFRIEND -
    The reason for using obfuscated language is to dehumanize the human baby.

    Scientifically speaking, after birth the child does not become “baby,” simply “neonate.” When looking at scientific stages of early human development, there is no “baby.” That is to say, “baby” is not a precise word, but it has more humanity to it than “fetus.”

    In the context of “child found in toilet,” fetus is an awful word because it leaves out a crucial detail – was this baby born or not? And the follow up question, how far along was pregnancy?

    Perhaps the author doesn’t care to know because it would shine light on another ugly fact about abortion. In the United States, there is no federal law that prohibits abortion after “viability.”

    Headline that states “Baby found in toilet” would imply murder, a crime. “Fetus found in toilet” implies an abortion, legal. “Viable fetus found in toilet” implies abortion, legal and disgusting.

    Heard that it was still possible to bug these, using a few microphones and some digital signal processing. Like each key makes a different sound, or echolocation, etc.

    Not arguing about heterosexuals.
    Stand to reason, though, if every gay man only had 1 partner, AIDS wouldn’t be an epidemic for them.

    Really wouldn’t be a problem if they didn’t sleep around so much.

    Well, at least it’s not Detroit.

    It’s important for bicyclists to remember that it’s easy to be dead right.

    I graduated Purdue University last spring with an Electrical Engineering degree, and a 3.3 cumulative GPA. You can throw up all the numbers you want on how “easy” it is to get an ‘A’ at other universities, but the fact remains that Purdue hasn’t had grade inflation for 30 years, and (if I recall correctly) that the campus-wide average for undergraduate courses taken is around a 2.5. Electrical Engineering is much closer to a 2.0.

    For all those students getting easy “A’s,” good luck in the real world. I know what my degree is worth.

    The difference in the order of magnitude between 70 and 4,500,000,000 is staggering. The report isn’t claiming that the rock is 4,500,000,023 years old, it’s claiming 4.5 billion.

    I wouldn’t use an instrument that measures the lengths of football fields to measure the width of bacteria.

    Seems this is a fad every so often.

    Best way I can describe it is that it masks sour flavors – lemons and limes and sour patch kids are already full of sugar. When you take away the sour, all you have is sweet.

    Other things you can try with these include vinegar (swish, don’t swallow!), grapefruit, dark (70%+ cacao) chocolate, black coffee, beer, granny smith apples. Pretty much anything, throw a party with it.

    One last warning – you’ll be consuming tons of sour foods. If you eat a few lemons, you’ll have a bad time.

    If you believe in Heaven, why is it so difficult to believe in Hell? And if you believe in God and His Angels, why is it so difficult to believe in Satan and his demons?

    I’ve listened to a presentation about this by an exorcist appointed by a bishop, and he was one of the most un-excitable, level headed people I’ve ever heard. He said that his job was to be the biggest skeptic of anyone – that pretty much unless holy water boils when you try to touch it, you’re not possessed.

    When I see stories about self-appointed exorcists charging money for skype exorcisms, I get a little upset about the mockery they make of the true gravity of the subject.

    La plus belle des ruses du diable est de vous persuader qu’il n’existe pas.
