Lobo;4896653...And dude, an economic analysis of atomic bombs vs. civilian casualties?, c'mon, this can't be more crazy...
As distasteful as it may be, there have been times in history when the worth of human lives has been calculated, and the cost for ending them has also been calculated. War costs money, the most efficient use of money limits the amount of war bond drives and hopefully shortens the length of the war.
Yes, the History of Homo Sapiens is a bad joke. Where are those raptors of the jumjum's Jurassic Park thread?, we deserve a painful extinction...well, except Salma Hayek
Lobo;4896653...Jummy, you, as always, so intellectually unbiased....
Hooray! This is what psychiatrists call a "breakthrough"! I'm so proud of you. I think you may have taken a big step toward improved mental health and perfect emotional equilibrium. Yes, you may have found...the key to joy.
Let me show you how you did it. There are two ways to go, either of which will result in great psychic and emotional rewards. Down one path, starting from the point you make, i.e. jummy is intellectually unbiased; well, it's close to saying, "jumjum is unbiased, objective and fair". Isn't that a sweet and health-giving concept? How about that as a mantra? Ummmm, so nice and sweet, like cinnamon rolls hot from the oven!
This is the point where there's a branch in the road, but don't worry, because both trails get us to wonderful places even if they are a bit different. But let's go down the right-hand turn first (of course!)
Now, the logical conclusion to the statement that "jumjum is objective" is really, "jumjum must be correct", right? And if jumjum is right, then, if you love Truth, Beauty and Justice, which I know you do, mis primos, then your duty, your desire, your hunger....is to agree with whatever opinion jumjum utters. This, mis amigos, is the secret to a happy life, I promise. See how everything becomes simple? Let jumjum do the hard work, and you can think calm, peaceful and loving thoughts as your souls become one with the multi-verses. Oh, I envy you for the discovery of true bliss you are soon to enjoy. Ohhhhhhhhmmmmmm......
But if you are an ascetic, and feel it purifies the core of your being to deny yourself pleasure, perhaps the way just revealed does not not appeal to you. In that case there is a different path, although the destination may be very much the same, but it might make all the difference. Let's go back to that road not taken, in that metaphorical wood, so lovely, dark and deep...although we shouldn't try too hard about promises to keep when we're trying to mix multiple metaphors (or multiple poems for that matter). But since we are not dead, let's turn to our affairs. Snarling, even. Oh I do so love sprinkling all the crumbs....
Okay, so let's return to the part where we have recognized that "jumjum is unbiased, objective and fair". Now that means he is unusual, since we know that most people aren't, can't or won't be objective. Correct? Okay, that means jumjum is looking pretty special. Could it be he is that 'reasonable man' that all those lawyers have been talking about for years...hell for centuries? I think so: the logic that led us to this point is irrefutable.
And now that I have been revealed as The Reasonable Man, you see that I am in fact more than just special - I am unique. It's coming together for you now isn't it? Yes, it took me awhile to grasp it myself, but now I can say it with confidence: I am The One. I know, I know - ironic, huh? Well here's a bigger one: Lobo is not simply Lobo: he is....Morpheus. He didn't know it either. Well, I didn't choose this role; I just Am.
So now all your searching is over. There is no need for confusion, dispute and discord, for we have seen it is so through logic which is as certain as gravity acting upon a rock...or acting on bullets and heavy stuff, unless I have matrixed the hell out of them and they slow down and shit.
But the point is, you can Believe in what I say. Welcome home, bubbala. Let your mind go and I will relieve you of all that hard thinking stuff. Shhhhh, just settle down on that big fluffy couch now. Here's some hot chocolate. Snuggle up with your blankie and we'll read a little bit of a wonderful book that I know will become one of your favorites. Let me see, where did I put that Rush Limbaugh thing.....
Oh, for those few of you who may harbor a line or two of alien code left over from Mr. Smith and his fellow replicants, remember the most important rule: never go in against a Republican when death is on the line. Or that thing about Asian land wars, I forget which.
My eyes are heavy and I crave sleep. But I am left with a final question: Was that pain pill I took a couple of hours ago the red one or the blue one?
You know I love your semantic fireworks despite the fact your ideas suck, a pity you are not spanish, the fight would be epic, something like Achilles and Hector...so bad, maybe in the next life
No way I'm ever "fighting" you in Spanish - this life, next life, your life, my life...just no way. ;)
I didn't make it!
So, Obama is here. He visited the reconstructed Frauenkirche and listened to a choir there, but so far no apology. Now he's on his way to the cc Buchenwald, where a apology is rather unlikely. So either that blog was full of crap or he has come to his senses.
Really?, I am burning my "Obama, make me a baby" T-shirt.
Obama, shame on you! :nono:

I still don't really get the whole "apology" thing. It was a war, no one came out of it with their hands clean, isn't that sorta understood?
Maybe we could do with some more apologies around. Better than holding endless grudges that can be used to start the next war.
I am suspicious of Obama, but at least his speeches do have a genuine concern and belief in humanity ... or is being ultra cynical about everything the highest mark of human growth these days ? Call me a retarded 10 year old - but I never gave up on seeing humanity as a cosmic expression of the life force. Does this make me "naive" .. or "innocent" ?
If there is to be an apology then I'd like to see one for Operation Paperclip. The operation that transferred some of the most evil Nazi Doctors and Psychiatrists ever to exist. Along with I G Farben being let off the hook, now we have shall we say .. the result of being flanked. Silent weapons for silent wars. It's chemical warfare. Resistance has been detected ! Break out the Prozac bombs !
