I don't understand how eating broccoli makes my farts smell like broccoli.

I mean, I get how it breaks down in my digestive system, but why don't my steak farts smell like A1?

Might have something to do with a couple of PTAs wanting their children to learn about "intelligent design" in science class. Sounds like a sound reason to not want your kids here (I'm a former GA HS student). I'm not hating on religion here, but God gets Sunday School and Darwin gets Science class.

I don't understand the full on hate for sunbelt teams. I can understand people's frustration/anger with losing their team in Winnipeg, Hartford, ect, but why wish that same anguish on another fan?

Because Congress approved Bush's actions.

Because many of your friends are friends with them and since Facebook is a popularity thing, it believes you have forgotten them and might as well add them as your friend.

It's the only true licorice, it actually contains licorice, the red stuff has no licorice in it at all, shouldn't even be called licorice.

Build the case. That's what I'm saying. If anyone on the D side had any solid "proof", he would be gone.

I don't understand why people do things just to gain acceptance from others. If they don't like you as you are **** them.

I don't understand why we make fun of others. Yes I am guilty of this myself, but it's something that I don't know why I would do.

I don't understand my occasional uncontrollable urge to jerk off.

I don't understand why people like Fergie and singers of that style.

I don't understand why some Americans think they are so special.

This isn't a partisan issue. The Bush administration had something to prove, not the "D" side.

They didn't find any WMDs. Now, I'll be the first to admit that doesn't mean there weren't any there. But to tell the American public that the presence of WMDs is a reason to go to war, and then admit that none were found, well, that's a lie.

It's pretty cut and dry.

Not because I need to feel better about myself, but because it bothers me. It's nice that you don't care about grammar (which is sort of contradictory considering that you have made complete sentences), but some of us do. Especially if I read an article, I expect it to be checked all the way, of course a mistake or two always slips to press but that's at a maximum.

On HFboards it's generally passable, but some of the other message boards I go to it gets to be a freaking nightmare. I do it because it bothers me, I'm a grammar nazi. I don't usually point it out because it isn't bad enough to point out. I don't honestly understand what is wrong with speaking your mind in a grammatically clear way, otherwise you DO look like an idiot.
Just because I know how to write doesn't mean I care about how others do, as long as what they write is understandable who cares about a run-on or two, a few misspelled words etc, that's all I'm trying to say. Some nazi members seem to jump on every single typo on here.

And therein lies the rub. You can't prove the war was started for personal gain, but you can most definitely bring to light a conflict of interest (No-bid contracts to Haliburton, Carlyle Group, ect). Is that good enough to boot someone out of office, no. You could use the torture in Abu Graib or the general misdirection of the American people when leading us to war, but there is no proof of LEGAL wrongdoing. The kicker when talking about impeaching Bush is that, technically, no law has been broken (that can be proven). Most everything objectionable or "wrong" was done by way of an executive order. All of his and his administration's testimony about 9/11, the war, ect. was not done under oath and was not recorded/is sealed, citing executive privileged, so perjury can't be claimed. Which, to go back to the origin of this topic, was the reason behind Clinton's impeachment proceedings. It wasn't that he got head, it was that he lied about said head while under oath (assuming, of course, that you consider head to be sexual relations).

While that may be true, the real reason there has been no impeachment of W is because there is no bat!@#$ insane left-wing tv/radio personality calling for it and his/her mass of listeners echoing the call. Which brings me to something I don't understand:

Mob mentality. Why do people's moral grounds fall away when they are insulated from consequence? Are morals simply false creations of society or do people really willingly give up their abilities to judge right from wrong?

I don't understand why some Americans think they are so special.

1. Because people are insecure and require "events" to help them bond with each other. I would assume this has something to do with the evolution of our society.
Back in the old tribal days, you didnt go and mix and mingle without a damn good reason...

2. As much as we think we are NOT, we are all insecure in someway or another. Insulting someone else is a method of self grandisement.. We feel better about ourselves at the expense of others.

3. You are a sexual tyrannasaurus and do not get enough lovin. You think you do, but you do not. Do it more often, and with more variety of people - OH and sometimes, you just want to do it yourself because you are probably better at it than you give yourself credit for.

4. Somepeople think she is talented.. I for one do not enjoy that music - but I listen to Gwar, so what the hell do I know.

5. Because they are special, just like you and me.. special. I do not know if they try hard to impress people just to get an in with them..then insult them..then touch the tallywacker thinking about them, listening to Fergie, just to feel special.. but it is plausible.

My question is not nearly as fun..

How do I kill magpies in my yard without getting caught?

Not necessarily, though I could see what you mean. Its more a measure of one's personal moral code. What I mean is (an admitted oversimplification of the idea):

I wouldn't normally throw a brick through a storefront because they wouldn't take my return, its causes property damage and could potentially harm a patron. Then, say a few days later, I see a group of people throwing bricks at said store and I join in. Now, what I considered wrong when it was just myself is now perfectly acceptable because their are other people doing it. Why? Is it because I'm insulated from consequence and (probably) won't be arrested or did I just not want to call attention to myself before and didn't really consider it a wrongful action.
