Patriotic clothing? I must examine my wardobe. I had no idea that my clothes had political views.

Basically, the unspoken statement they're making is "[SPAN style="FONT-STYLE: italic"]don't express any support or pride for your own country[/SPAN]" even though we're all supposed to be going "Rah rah rah, USA!".

And if you don't, then you're "unpatriotic".

 We should have a thread devoted to the transmission of good news!

  If you love the environment and believe, as I do, that humankind is not seperate and superior to the natural world, it's difficult to see humanity as anything less than a planetary parasite.

  Heedless of the protests and dire warnings of the scientific community, we will continue consuming our world like a disposable product, and in the end we will cease to be.

  The sad part is that, unlike what some Gaia hypothesists seem to believe, we're probably going to take most of the worldwide biosphere with us. There won't be much left of Gaia after the next world war.  


 The paradoxical thing of all this is that it's just a part of natural evolution

No need to bow, with age comes understanding and tolerance of almost all forms of behaviour in the young

Thought it would be interesting to have an overall view of fellow passengers on Spaceship DS

 Went to the library near my house to check out any books on Canada.  They only had 2!!!

One was Pierre Trudeau's Memoirs and the other was a History of Canada.  God, was I pissed.  For a country that is in the same hemisphere as the US they should atleast have more than 2 books on the country other than travel guides.[/DIV]
 Very sad. However try looking in the fiction department. Anything by W.O.Mitchell is worthwhile - he won't tell you much of Canada's anatomy, but if you want a 'physiological' glance at prairie life in Saskatchewan you won't find better.  
If we only knew who was likely to go berserk with a gun in his or her hand then there'd be no problem....
Yep, something disturbing indeed - but also eerily romantic.
