i firmly believe not all humans are fit to breed. in nature these individuals would have already died, thus no genetic material of theirs would be contributed to the gene pool. but medicine has changed this, so there is only one solution. forced sterilization.... laugh.gif

Yes... Genetic testing on humans.. Very contreversial. Would this prevent them for breeding or just do something with their genetic code (not even possible is it? tongue.gif)

The genetic testing wouldn't do anything to their genes, but I'm very certain that it WOULD prevent a majority of the human race from breeding.

Woh. Well, I don't think they could institute such a thing into law. Too many rights are being trampled on. Hey and you guys call me a utilitarian lol. Look at what you are saying!!! Sorry if this angers you, oh gods of the forum, but doesn't this controdict former statements about utilitarians and how you can't stand them?
Quistis88
I never said that I hated utilitarians, really. And this don't-let-the-stupid-people-breed thing could very well be utilitarian in and of itself.
hitokiri
i never said i wasn't utilitarian, in fact for the most part i am. actually i have a very simple life motto... "Can I spend it? Can I use it in my everyday life? No? Stop wasting my time then." this is just a general guideline though
Slashrose1010
Oh, well in that would you save your daughter or wife thing you guys seemed to be pretty peeved about people being utilitarians smile.gif

What kind of genetic disadvantages would be put into the category of "Cannot Breed"? I mean if someone had diabetes or something would they not be able to breed or is it for only more severe things like AIDS and stuff like that?

Slashrose1010
-He he. I will probably do one... don't know on whom yet though..

Quis's could be about a legendary battle against n00bs (once again they look like hollows)

It would be an action packed adventure full of millions worth of effects.

I don't want that position. I want to give it back to Kase.

But these n00bs nowadays, appearing out of nowhere . . . someone has to dirty their hands.
Slashrose1010
Yeah, teach that punk a lesson... well more like wigger.

-Humming Personal Jesus
-Thinking of what a moron Thunder was being lol
-Wants to watch more cartoons (Quis vs. someone)

- Just found somewhere I can download theme songs to a bunch of TVB TV series. (The weekend's barely started and I'm having so much fun it's ridiculous. If only my eyelids can keep up.)
- I'm starting to understand the ah, more experienced poster's aggravation at the n00b invasion.
- Does anyone but Thunder believe he's 23? huh.gif
Quistis88
Current Thoughts:

- mei, which TVB show themes are you downloading? Some of them are quite good. smile.gif
- I actually want him to be 23. It would make things interesting.
Gashole
Yes. Probably one of those high school dropouts who decided education is useless and music is everything and one has to do what he really wants.
Quistis88
Logical conclusion to make, Gashole.
Goldfish
I choose not to believe he is 23. The human race is at stake here. If he were actually that old, then the gutters seem to be getting an awful large helping of crap.

Thoughts:

-The human race is saddening me. Glad there are those of you who stand out though.
-Better sleep on it. I don't think my 11 hours of sleeping until after lunch were enough.
-We should set up regular debates and have a mod to be challenged for each one. Since Quis is currently the reigning champion, she would be the king of the hill for now.

@ Quis: So far, I have "Perish in the Name of Love," "Country Spirits," and I'm working on "Golden Faith" right now. The really really good ones from the old days (most composed by the great late James Wong) my parents already have on multiple albums.biggrin.gif Still searching for more--I really want the one from "Point of No Return."

- In psychology we've just begun the chapter on Personality Theory. I do believe Thunder would be an interesting subject to study.
Quistis88
Ahh, "Country Spirits" is an okay one. The one from "Square Pegs" and "Legal Entanglement" are good (Hacken Lee is in both songs, actually). "Golden Faith" is nice as well.
hitokiri
my current thoughts:

- noobs: where are they coming from???? and where can we send them to be "reeducated"
- nice when i wake it will be the weekend... no work for me...
Quistis88
Send them to my house, I'll educate them.

By the way, hitokiri, what do you do for a living, that you get weekends off (unless it's just this weekend)?
Slashrose1010
(Technically it's already Saturday)

-Buzz is wearing off... Gonna hit the sack soon, and I'm all in black (no pun intended... maybe a little) I really am wearing ALL black roo smile.gif
-Wonder how many times I can whoop my little brother in Halo
-I need to exercise more

What is this "ex-er-cise" of which you speak?

- Just downloaded "Where the Legend Begins" just because I don't remember what show it was on...now I do.
- Working on "Square Pegs," also because I don't remember where it's from and also Quis recommended it.
- Shall hit "Legal Entanglement" next.
Slashrose1010
I'm not quite sure what it is. Some kind of movement of the body to improve muscle mass and function.

-Whyd do all of my definitions sound so made up? (other than they are made up?)
-Anyone else here take art?
-I migh take video journalism.... nah

Complicated to explain, so here you are. smile.gif It's a rather nice song, and has a lovely oriental sound.

well basically they pay me to acquire advertising accounts for the NY Times. I have to play the role of the polite asian guy and be all work nice. I do the occasional consulation on the actual design of the ads, less and less nowadays though.

basically its a 7-3 job with the occasional evening event... but they don't bother me on the weekends... and i can always use up sick days if i get really sick of work... but i like money so i try to always show up, laugh.gif

That's a far more interesting job than the one I have, at the very least. Sicks days are a plus, and the money part . . . such is one of the many incentives (if not the one with the highest priority) for every employed person in the world. laugh.gif

Wow, NY Times . . . does it pay well?
hitokiri
well lets just say i do alright and leave it at that... laugh.gif
Quistis88
laugh.gif Haha, I see. I always wanted to know what it was like working in the news publishing industry.
Slashrose1010
Polite asian guy... I hate that stereotype. Whenever I do something bad in class they're like: I expected better from you and crap. <----Because I'm the Asian Guy.
hitokiri
well i'm tired now for some reason, and it is 4 something here; so i'm crashing. night people....
Slashrose1010
Yes 415 here in PA. I'll be out of your hair in like 5 minutes
