Far from the maddening crowds, a place to kick back and lead an intelligent discussion in peace. We respectfully ask the braindeads to stay outside. (New here?)
U.S. military videos, courtesy of Wikileaks. (Warning: the videos show real people killing other people. I watched a lot of the short (17 min) one, and it is difficult to watch. I've haven't seen anything this brutally real in a while, if ever.)
The incident: U.S. soldiers, from a helicopter, start shooting a group of people who are walking down the street, believing them to be enemy combatants. One is carrying a camera because he is a photo (...)
Seems like Iím talking to myself here most of the times, which is a pity really considering all those beautiful articles stored in the depths of this site. There must have been a time, when this place was more what its name promises to be than it is right now. What an irony, ďnetaliveĒ is dead! Well, may be itís ahead of its time and thatís the destiny all those social sites, perhaps even the whole non-commercial-web in the not too far future.
This place seems to be online for almost 10 (...)
I need some help, advice and understanding.
I have been in a relationship with a married man for 12 years. I love this man with everything I am. I have tried many, many, many times to walk away from this relationship. It is killing me inside. Lately, I've been contemplating suicide because that is the only way I think I can be free of him. My story is a long one and I would really like to tell someone, but I've heard the things that people say about the other woman. The blame (...)
A marriage is between one man and one woman. Ok, if we assume the only reason for marriage is to procreate, and multiply. But where does THAT assumption come from?

If those assumptions be the case, then logically it must follow that if a couple doesn't produce offspring, their marriage must be made null-and-void.
If we assume that marriage's most important reason is for procreation, then (...)
Maybe you've heard by now, but last month Google came out with it's own browser called "Chrome". Like all Google products, it's a red, yellow and mostly blue beta version. Like most net reviews already have said, it's obviously competition for IE7 and a foot hold for Google's market share. It's heavily based on the Mozilla code base - enough that netalive mistakenly recognizes it as Firefox.
Mostly, I'm a fan, but here's my best and worst five points about Chrome:
As my laundry hangs dripping over the tub, I learned that wringing out too many clothes after washing is painful on the hands and so I let them hand for about an hour before I wring them out, I was thinking about this project I have going on.
It's a set of 25, or will be in a few days, of 25 moncromatic drawings in color on black.
Now the virtues of drawing on black paper are many. Using black to start with tends to mess with how we see the world.
You deal with only the light reflection if (...)
