Hot Topic

Beginning with my comment on 3/2/08 at 10:19 PM, we are discussing contraception at Rodak Riffs.

It promises to be interesting.

I don't know why blogger isn't letting me put links in my posts. Here is the URL:

I'll have to add this to the list: Environmental reasons:

Well, my challenger petered out before we even got started.

How is it, if people are so sure that contraception is alright, they are so defensive about it. "Thou dost protest too much."

And why run from a discussion that starts to pin things down and really look at the issue? What was it C.S. Lewis said about the boy who won't look at the refrigerator because he knows his chore list is there?

America, you're in denial.

Ryan Hallford said...

nevertheless, i posted anyway.

Civis said...

Boy did you!

That could almost have been by spiritual reading for the morning.

Glad you stirred things up!

Civis said...

My favorite of your points:

"Onside of these consequences I really don’t see what advantage the contraceptive mentality has for society in general. It is not really an answer to anything except a way for people to have sex and limit their accountability and consequences."

Jared said...

Ryan and Civis:

Enjoying the thread at Rodak's place.

Ryan, glad to see you here. I check The Arrival almost every day. I think I even sent an email to Civis about your blog.

Civis said...

Jared, you did.

Rodak said...

How is it, if people are so sure that contraception is alright, they are so defensive about it. "Thou dost protest too much."

People usually get defensive when other people tell them "I'm right,you're wrong. I'm good; you're evil." People are funny that way.

Rodak said...

That said, I think that you are confusing being defensive about it for being defensive of it.
There is not a doubt that there are people and groups of people out there who would again make it difficult, or impossible, to access, if they could.

Ryan Hallford said...

I think the thread on contraception has reached its exhaustive end.

Civis, I can't see the full link for your environmental reasons, but I have heard that some oral contraceptives have been finding there way into water sources and the higher levels of estrogen is reducing the fertility of male fish. I need to check on this, but I have also heard of a group in California taking a stance against oral contraception for the secular reasons of going all-natural, and rejecting contraception because of its unnatural and dangerous effects of the body. It would be under the same banner as going vegan and such. I think many people forget to realize how powerful estrogen is and what introducing extra estrogen into a woman does to her body.

Jared, thanks for the support.

Civis said...

I just posted another comment--a challenge.

Rodak,

Come on my friend. If people are just trying to protect thier "right" to contracept, why do they feel the need to make fun of people who want to have more than 2 kids? Why do they say things like, "You know how to take care of that don't you?"

People are more than just sticking up for thier opinions. If it were just what you were saying they would not get so worked up.

Rodak said...

If it were just what you were saying they would not get so worked up.

Speaking strictly for myself, I get "worked up" only if I am getting "worked over."

Dear fellows!

Is it a problem to change itunes to mp3? I say NI :) Its really puzzling not being able to play iTunes tracks with my $300 iriver!
Digging for a solution brings certain results. To [url=http://drm-removal.com/features/iTunestoMP3/convert_iTunes_to_MP3.htm]convert iTunes to MP3[/url] I used this tool drm removal (drm-removal.com or something like this, please ask me - will find that web again). I don't care what is drm - what I read, its something dealing with protection and nothing about iTunes.
But this tool really works for me and it converted quickly my iTuines entire library, including video files!.

What you your solution? Why itunes makes this foolishness? I didn't like ipods at all! They simple stuck and suck!
What is that drm that I loose converting my itunes to mp3?

thanks in advance!

Good day, sun shines!
There have been times of hardship when I didn't know about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright pessimistic person.
I have never thought that there weren't any need in big initial investment.
Nowadays, I'm happy and lucky , I started take up real income.
It gets down to select a proper companion who uses your money in a right way - that is incorporate it in real business, parts and divides the profit with me.

You may get interested, if there are such firms? I have to tell the truth, YES, there are. Please be informed of one of them:

From the moment the first Mercedes-Benz CLS four-door "coupe" was introduced to the public, other German luxury automakers hit the drafting board. According to the German auto experts at AutoBild, Audi is just over a year away from unleashing its own cleverly packaged sedan.

Just to share an expirience:
I digg a way to grab youTube movies. Some of are sites where you put a link from YouTube and it gives you file with strange extension and small size. Some are really complicated.
My way was to use moviesherlock (moviesherlock.com or sm like this - please ask me - will rememeber). Really simple utility, that just works, and only 1 button in software.
[url=http://download.cnet.com/3001-2140_4-75065920.html?spi=68a87b0bad1ea20e12285c5005469cde]I downloaded it from here: http://download.cnet.com/3001-2140_4-75065920.html?spi=68a87b0bad1ea20e12285c5005469cde[/url].
I downloaded even HD movies!

But it looks too simple, has no player, but just works. It downloaded ~12 concurrent movies for me and actually slows down my system. Its possible to do search in [url=http://moviesherlock.com]moviesherlock[/url] and search results differs from what you see in YouTube. Thats strange.
Who knows - Tube search are same for same keyword? I loves cat (Simons cat / dog).
Why doesn't youtube allows to download its movies without external tools?!! It actually sucks!

Thanks in advance!
