61% Good, 41% Lawful. Lawful Good.

You should have broken the poll options down by political affiliation.

I consider it immoral to breed above the replacement rate, so two. If I want any more than that, I'll adopt.

The instrumental content of their songs tended to be really unique and interesting, but Jim Morrison's lyrics were usually pretty lame. The band would have been better off if it were entirely instrumental.

Also, "Alabama Song" is definitely The Doors' best song.

I used to go through earbuds about as quickly as Goldwater, but then I invested in a pair of over-ear headphones. Not only is the sound quality far superior, but they'll probably end up being cheaper in the long run.

Don't use them.  I enjoy this thing called silence.  You might want to try it sometime.

On behalf of people with tinnitus, I find this post offensive.

LBJ was vile. The second worst President after Wilson. I heavily recommend everyone read Robert Caro's biographies-just the first volume about his early life shows how cold and calculating the man was. He could give JFK a run for his money when it came to having affairs (Alice Glass), betrayed people who loved him like a son (Rayburn) and was consumed with ambition in a manner that makes Nixon look like a saint.

didn't know he had a thing for Crystal Castles

It's well-known that, had there been a good synthpop band in his day, LBJ might have chosen a career in music instead.

I sometimes have a feeling that JJ knowingly and willingly summons defendants before court who she knows live on the dole...

Your decision to refer to Judge Judy as "JJ" had me very confused for a moment.

Weird. I never thought of Paul Ryan as a top.

How many Young Republicans are there, compared to Not-Young Republicans? More importantly,  what is their influence in the Republican Party?

It's not how much influence young Republicans have in the party today, but how much influence they will have in the future.

"Benelux" is a cool name. Now I have no idea how well unifying Netherlands, Belgium, and Luxembourg would go, but if the state of Benelux were at all practical, I would be for it.

Now that the shirt and belt are no longer considered undergarments, I disagree with the notion that the waistcoat still needs to cover them (of course, I disagree with the notion that the waistcoat should ever be worn at all, but my conviction on that point isn't that strong).

15  General Politics / Political Debate / Re: What do you find immoral? on: March 09, 2014, 10:14:43 am
Whether or not a number of these things are immoral depends on the surrounding circumstances. Is your family going hungry while you gamble with their food money? Does the medical testing that you're performing on an animal have the potential to save its species from extinction? Was the animal whose fur you're wearing killed after it had been stripped of its valuables?

In the end, I think that every single thing on this list can be done in a way that's at least morally neutral, so I say "None".

EDIT: In other words, what anvi said Tongue

Musical, followed by Intrapersonal, Logical, and Linguistic, all of which are between 16 and 20.

And now you have two posts in the Sage Garden.

I suppose that I'd give the Smashing Pumpkins credit for most of what is usually attributed to Nirvana. Siamese Dream achieved everything that Nirvana ever attempted, and pulled off the entire act far more successfully.

I'm legitimately surprised that the OP didn't include a link to a pop punk or post-hardcore cover of the song.

The West and Russia both seem to support self-determination when it's convenient and oppose it when it isn't.

Deep.

Kinda ironic coming from you.

Not as ironic as it coming from someone who supports sweatshops...

Not ironic, this is "rich".

Ah, so close! I promise to go home and study my epic Atlas may-mays later today.

IMO, operating a sock account should be within the rules as long as the main account agrees to take all infractions/bans handed out to the sock as well.
What about socks that report the original account's posts?

I... don't know why someone would do that, but I don't see any reason why such a case wouldn't be handled how it would be handled if it were an actual poster reporting someone else's posts.

I took the ACT today. Blugggh.
I just registered for it; I have been told it is more geared toward writing and history. Is this true?

The ACT doesn't have any history on it. The five subjects tested are English, Math, Reading, Science, and Writing, and the Writing test is actually optional.
I registered for the writing. I assume its an essay?

Yes. The test-taker is presented with a topic, on which they then have thirty minutes to write an essay.
25  General Politics / Political Debate / Re: How should public schools in the United States be funded? on: March 04, 2014, 08:02:58 pm
The current funding regime practically guarantees that the school districts that are least in need of funding receive the most of it, while the ones that are most in need receive the least support - a state of affairs that I consider borderline immoral.

Not only would I equalize school funding by shifting the burden away from individual school districts to the federal Department of Education, but I would also found a program that provides extra reimbursement to teachers who work with especially impoverished students.
