  1. Ok, I wasn't even sure that this is a debate but I keep seeing different people arguing for and against pineapple on pizza. See, kinda stupid but since we're with a multinational audience, I'd like your opinion. Does pineapple go on pizza or not? My favorite pizza is grilled chicken, bacon and pineapple with extra cheese and sauce so obviously I don't understand why anyone says it doesn't belong other than their not having my king-like taste buds and sophistication...???????????? And go!!! Don't forget to add your reasoning.

    The American Revolution

    Being exposed to so many different people from so many different countries and with all of you being educated,I thought that I'd start a history discussion/debate. I have been watching different documentaries about the American Revolution (mostly American and British in origin) and some of the causes and circumstances along with the war itself have really peaked my interest. Growing up in Tennessee, USA we were taught that basically Britain was being unfair to the American Colonies and it resulted in a heroic group of ragtag militia defeating the most feared military in the world at the time. To be clear, the issues I'm about to mention would make most Americans slam me as being disrespectful and unpatriotic but that's not hardly the case. I've served my country and like the idea of free speech and of the press, unfortunately the majority of my countrymen are mindless drones that perpetuate the stereotype of the fat stupid American slob. Back to my thoughts. Recently it's come to my attention that the founding fathers were kinda being pricks towards King George. A commonly held belief is that the whole thing started because of taxation. The Colonists felt that it was unfair to have taxes levied against them yet have no representation in Parliament. I too don't agree with taxation without representation. At the same time, the British government shelled out quite a bit of money and resources including troops, ships, food etc. defending the Colonies against the French and Indians in the 7 years war, and believed the Americans should pull some of their own weight and foot some of the bill via new taxes. I totally agree with that idea. That's just one example of something that probably could've been fixed easily by giving the Colonies a voice or two in Parliament. What are your thoughts? I'd love for some Brits to give input. I believe that the relationship between the American Colonists and the British homeland had several possibilities to be salvaged. If that'd happened, perhaps Britain would still rule the world instead of it's rebellious colony. Please be civil, please abstain from bashing either nation. What alternative outcomes do you think could've been achieved? How do you think the world would be different if we'd have kissed and made up? Obviously King George sorely underestimated the Contenintal Army, do you think that if Britain had had a different monarch that things would've been different? Lastly, I'm interested in how the Revolutionary War is portrayed in foreign schools. I know you learn about it because we're just that awesome lmao.

    Homophobia and Evolution?

    I think evolution plays into everyone's different biases for and against people. However I believe that it's not as much as a natural inclination to be biased as much as it is a learned behavior. I really don't believe that it's something in our DANA saying that this person can't reproduce so they're dangerous to the species. I just think that some people just plain don't like it because it's not natural. So, is this a question of physical evolution making people hate gays or is it the psychological evolution of the society?

    Kinda Stupid, But Important...

    I've also tried red apple and grilled chicken with a sweet marinara sauce and mozerella mixed with chunks of bleu cheese. Pretty good.

    Kinda Stupid, But Important...

    My reasoning is based on the salty vs sweet mixture. I'm a fan of several fruits on pizza, apples are another, again with grilled chicken and bacon. The so-called Hawaiian version with Canadian bacon (it's just ham, not bacon) isn't that great. Mine is, I also like pineapple but only cooked, otherwise it's too tart. Somehow Aurelius, I knew it'd be you to get at this first it usually is. And Mr. SecGen, with the way you worded that, I'm inclined to follow your lead. And I love the stuff, but Canadians right? JK to all of our Canadian buddays but if he knew, he'd apologize, that's great.

    Best Vacation

    I'd love to go back to Germany. It was pretty awesome, what I got to see anyway. I didn't get to stay long enough to thoroughly enjoy myself though and didn't get to go to Berlin. Actually, anywhere in Europe would be nice, but Germany was very cool to me and the people surprisingly LOVED American Marines.

    Logic problem

    I read the explanation and I still don't understand the logic. Maybe if they'd provided more information like who she told what, I might begin to get it. Maybe I'm a bit slow, but I was even more confused by the explanation than the problem.

    Wow. Not a clue.

    NADC Book Club

    By far my favorite book. It's exciting, it's happy, and it's sad all at once. The boy spends his savings on a couple of awesome coon dogs (raccoons if you're foreign) and the tale continues from there. I won't spoil it, but it's an awesome read.

  14. I love the posting title.

    Ted Cruz's chances of becoming president

    The Bush's never failed to entertain. Especially Dubya. If you believe in the Illuminati then he's going to be president.

    Ted Cruz's chances of becoming president

    With recent developments in the Middle East, Mr. Cruz is just something to distract away from tangible tensions between Obama and Netanyahu. Coupled with the destabilization of Yemen along with Iraq and Syria, I'm honestly worried. Arabs have rarely showed an all out assault on two fronts, especially with large groups like ISIS and Al Queda. The RG and following insurgency in Iraq was tough enough but we had constant help from the Israeli Air Force. My life was saved by one of their strikes because NOBODY else in the Coalition had any available air support. They're more important than people realize. Now because of our desertion they're going to be annihilated and we lose our one ally in that zone. Once they conglomerate and achieve a nuclear program, the world is doomed. Civilized people know that nuclear war will be bad for all of us. Radical Islamists would burn the world and their own children just to prove they're dedicated.

    It's just a distraction to pull attention away from where it is needed.

    Fox News the most trusted news source

    News from multiple sources especially concerning the same story is about the only way to figure anything out. There's my story, there's your story and somewhere in between the truth lies.

    Fox News the most trusted news source

    Ummm I'm not a genius but I was under the impression that a coup consisted of removing the national leader,which would be him if he were elected. I haven't heard until now that he's planning on running. In my opinion the race is going to be Clinton vs. Bush. Everyone says they don't like Jeb Bush, that's rarely mattered in our elections. I don't think America will elect a man named Lindsey anyway,then again I didn't see a Barack in our lineup either. It'd be nice if someone would lock Congress in Washington so they can do whatever it is that they're paid to do.

    Fox News the most trusted news source

    I'm pretty sure Kim's glorious behind is getting more attention. I mean, look: https://twitter.com/kimsass It even has its own Twitter account. DAAAAAAMN!! Maybe I should start a Twitter account.

    Fox News the most trusted news source

    ^^^ HAHAHA!!! I was there man!! What Azure said is pretty much what I was gonna say, he hit it pretty much on the head. Accurate news is secondary, we all need to know how big the Kardashian's booties are getting, not the conflicts around the globe.
