I am inclined to disagree with this. Most animals certainly may not be able to communicate in the most effective and complex way that humans have come to specialise into. But they can certainly communicate in complex and effective ways between each other within their respective species.

I don't know if animals consider their peers as "persons" as per human understanding. Heck, if you take ants for example, it seems that for some animals, the individual's "personality" is even more heightened, in a sense, as they are a collective and have specific roles rather than individuals fending for themselves if that makes sense.

I agree that humans need to learn to cooperate with animals since our livelihood depends a lot on them. They can certainly have greater wisdom than us in a lot of aspects; research is being done to replicate many biological products for example. But are they equal to us, inferior to us or possess greater ability to understand us? Well, we may never know. I prefer to consider them as belonging to leagues of their own.

For the topic itself, the heck do I know lol. They probably won't ever understand why they're being brought to church due to fundamental differences in communicative ability. Unless there are dog preachers, then it's up to them not the pet owners. Woof.

I'll be free most times on Fridays (Aussie time GMT+10) for the next 4 or so months. The rest of the days, I guess I'll have to check out the European crowd if they start early.

Good on you, man!

I don't get why or how people have so much time on their hands to talk so much about what type of people they want to put their dingus into/ want their dingus put into them/ whether they want their dingus rare or medium-rare and so on.

You're like this, so love yourself and just shut up and live with it! I do understand if they are being oppressed and want to voice out but there should be a limit to everything. There's enough sexuality in the world already so give yourself a break, you know. Doesn't matter if you are religious or not, too much sex and too much talking about it eventually takes it toll on you.

The only genuine purpose I could see this info being used is if you go to doctors or lawyers. But for your friends, family and people around you, it might cause a bit of hurt to them if you go overboard. Please take care of yourself and of people around you, that's all I can ask.

It is true that the variable in the experiment is, well, mostly psychological and that the aim was to find a neurological/physiological connection with it.
However, I do believe that their diets could effectively distort the results as their observations were based on the growth of that organ. I suppose my point is that food is a crucial point in growth as the process of growth is very resource intensive as you can expect.

When talking about growth, food seems like quite an important factor. Say one of the subjects were fasting that day whilst another overate, I would predict that the one who overate has more nutrients in his body and is more likely to grow, irrespective of any other factors.

The experiment in general seems to have too many confounding factors to consider. One way to eliminate the factor of food at the very least make the subjects follow a set diet for a period of time before the testing is done.

I totally agree with you! I'm just more annoyed at it since I've grown a passion for medical science!

Hello hello, everybirdies!

I suddenly want to start a family! Yep, that's it. I'm not even in a relationship (yet, huehue) and I'm already thinking about this kind of thing. It may be because of the heavily familial influence that I've grown in but I hold family very dearly to my heart.

During my teenage years, I wasn't exactly a rebellious kid. But I did have a few friends or knew people that did not like their family at all. I thought it very strange since I didn't even know how it is that you could be able to hate your family that much. They were the kinds of people who said: "You can choose your friends but not your family."
I didn't know why but I always felt like they were not wrong and yet, they seemed to be missing an important piece in their philosophy. I think I've figured out what it was now. That's where you come in, o wise ones, tell me if you think I'm wrong.

In fact, you are able to, sort of, choose your family. You see, if you do reach a high enough degree of love with your friend, you can basically become family! It's that simple! As a personal example, I call my dad's best friend "uncle", even if he's not really my uncle. But I do respect him just as much as I respect an uncle.

A further example, some people are afraid of the 'friend zone'. You know what, I think it is because they were expecting 'love' instead of friendship. I say, don't worry about it, 'love' is (or can become) an extension of friendship. They are part of the same tree.

Now that I've laid that out, my point becomes: family is the next step for love. Why exactly do gays want to get married? Part of their reason is that it feels more like a family and they feel more comfortable adopting children (children being the logical step after marriage).
  Spoiler for potential controversy:


So, in the end it all comes down to family. If you have friends, you want to have a bond with them that will last like family. If you have a relationship, it's to be able to eventually form a family. So, we should be making efforts to get along with our families and if we don't, that's actually okay. It's just that we need to respect the decision stemming from our parents or grand-parents' love for each other to form our current family.

I hope my point is straight-forward. Now, let me know what you think! :)

I think that they seem to be missing a huge component of life that may very easily affect growth in general: food. There is no mention of controlling their dietary intake and other lifestyles. Whether they smoked, drank alcohol or exercised were things I did not pick up in this study during my skim through.
Having mostly Caucasian subjects doesn't mean anything since whites live in very varied cultures. You're not gonna tell me that a white American and a British migrant will live the same way!

That is exactly why psychology gets a bad rep, they don't think enough beyond political correctness during controls. Race plays a role and so does cultural, religious and sociocultural status.

Waifus tend not to have 3D kids if they are in 2D unfortunately. If they are in 3D, they might refuse to have any depending on their personality traits and stats like work/life balance.

Well, having got back last week, I can tell you that there are now at least 5 motorcycles on your either sides. You see, the roads and lanes (if you're lucky) are quite narrow with enough space for maybe one car and one or two bikes. A big truck would take over all the space. It's a little bit like India, both the traffic conditions and the way of driving.

My dad says that when you drive, you must assume that you are the only one to have brakes! These guys won't stop for you to join the junction. Heck, even yellow boxes (the ones at a junction where you're not supposed to stop so as to keep the junction clear) don't matter, everybody just maximises the space on the road.

And don't even keep me going on parking. There are steep 0.6m+ deep sewer canals on the sides of many roads and if you have a small/low-floor car, I can only wish you good luck since there will be big scratches.

My waifus are doing fine thanks.

I actually think the community hub could use an updated layout, however unlikely that is. It should at least give an option to show most recent threads (by date of creation and elimininating the archival feature) or some kind of history since clicking the forum page gives a list of categories that don't really seem too useful if you've been reading threads off the hub.

As for my little self, I'm going on a month-long trip to my beloved country of birth. I wonder if I'll be able to drive in the terrible traffic there; there was an average of approximately 2 motorcycles on each side of your car at every traffic light the last time I was there.

I like catchy OPs so I'll just be listing a few:

1. ∞ YouTube ∞
Nisemonogatari's first OP- Futakotome by Chiwa Saitou
The second season of the Bakemonogatari series is where the depth of the relationship between Araragi and Senjougahara is well-tested and so, I think the OP somewhat matches.

2. ∞ YouTube ∞
The classic Azumanga Daioh OP- Soramimi Cake by Oranges and lemons

3. ∞ YouTube ∞
Humanity has declined OP- Real World by nano.ripe
Dat stupid dance.
