yeah, i better stay away from Mr. Libertarian. i tend to be of the mind that libertarians are cranks at worst and unrealistic utopianists at best. not for me! FAAST looks more my speed. thanks for the info!
Oh yeah, and that nu-metal stuff is crap! I love the old stuff as well, Iron Maiden, Motorhead, Slayer, Meanstreak etc. I really do like the screamy/growly vocals stuff though. I wish I could make my voice do that stuff, but I don't think I smoke enough lol. I've been getting into metal and really heavy, brutal shit a lot lately. It was never my favorite before, but I'm hearing a lot of cool stuff thanks to Pandora radio. It's the only stuff that'll block out obnoxious coffee rock when I'm studying at a coffee shop.
I hear ya. Between school and work and everything else I have little time to focus on music. Keep working at it though, if it's what you love!
The umlaut is usually omitted when we type the name out. My keyboard is set up for American English and that's the only reall reason why. When writing it out we stick it over the 1st O every time. We actually have an awesome logo that our friend drew out for us that is on our
That's the best part. He's in Kuwait. He's not in any immediate danger, unless that government stops paying it's citizens hush money to not revolt. The odds of him coming home in one piece are actually better than mine would be if I were to fly across country and back.
Bingo. We tried to make the name Doers of it look German or Swedish (throwing random Umlauts in there) so metal kids would come to our shows and get their faces melted off. Hehe. It just causes confusion, which we also like. You are among the very few who have actually figured it out without help!
You're an aspiring comic I see. Do you tour at all or just do local ameture gigs?
Well, yeah, it's the way to go if it works ;). I don't work with algae, but there are groups who do and I think that's a better option because it won't take up as much land. Our country alone has a lot of energy demands to meet, I wouldn't want to wipe out more forests just so we can grow the plants that would sustain our lust for fuel. I don't want to start taking the bus either...so it's a tough nut to crack!
I think I did hear something about that microbe...can't remember though. I'll have to look around for the story. Sounds interesting.
Yes, its compositional analysis of plant matter to make ethonol. We're basically trying to find different materials with which to make a commercially viable biofuel that doesn't use a feedcrop. My group tests switchgrass, sunflower, poplar etc for lignin content in the cell walls. It makes me sneeze a lot because it's a lot of handling of dried and ground up plant matter.
Haha yeah don't I know it. The college I attend is actually right across the street from one of those mega-churches. It's really frustrating having these guys in my philosophy classes who seem to think that "faith" is somehow an argument for everything.
It's actually a term young Japanese children (mostly little girls) use to refer to their older brother. I just read a really freaky manga called "Ibitsu". It's based on a Japanese urban ledgend about a girl dressed in Lolita clothing that is usually hanging around trash. If you pass her she'll ask you one question: "Do you have a younger sister?". And any way you answer it will lead to your twisted end. The legend's called "The Strange Lolita". I have pictures of the manga on my page. (sorry. My computer isn't replying in the inbox ^^;)
I think that all a (Reasonable) person really needs to help guide them towards Atheism is a Bible. 100% seriousness. That is the only thing that made me start questioning anything.
Comedy? That sounds like a pretty cool job to have. Good luck with the touring and Comedy Central thing.
Like I said, we were never a super religious family, so religion wasn’t an important thing in my life. And like you, I never really took any of that stuff seriously. But when I got older, I guess I started questioning the whole religion idea. I think I was fourteen when I started getting interested in different beliefs and whatnot. I thought it was funny how we (Mormons) looked at other religions like they were completely insane, yet somehow had the nerve to be so confident in ours. I also started reading bits of the Bible, realizing how messed up a good majority of it was. When I turned fifteen I think I was pretty much positive that I was an Atheist.
But to be completely honest with you, I’m so indecisive and confused right now. I don’t know if I should call myself an Atheist or not. Hopefully I will figure this out some day, haha.
Thanks for the info, I will definitely check it out. My husband and I aren't very outgoing by nature, but we have a 14 month old who is going to start forcing us to socialize more. We definitely want to find other atheists so she can grow up around other kids like her, and needless to say we are pretty outnumbered around these parts.
