If you want to read: lolSpoilerAlso, my dad never touched me with his bare hands. He used a belt. I know, to you, that probably doesn't make things better since we will never agree. But he never physically touched me. It's even in the bible (for anyone who reads it lol, because I am not religious anymore) spare the rod, spoil the child. I think removing spanking from ways of punishing children has ruined the children of today! This is why children don't listen and think they can disrespect adults. In my young days, we didn't have all these problems with children acting out the way they do now. We would never think about standing up to our teacher and raising a hand to them. Children think they have more power over adults with all these laws and ways of dealing with children. It isn't working which is why our world is going to hell. All I know is, I always thought twice before doing something I knew was bad. It definitely taught me to behave and do the right things and not the wrong.
For reals, you think the only way to instil respect and manners is through inflicting pain?

Psychology is science. :| I have a bachelors of SCIENCE in psychology.
Woah, now, let's not get crazy. Psychology as a science is on shaky ground
A classic thread. I remember it... if not well, then at least fondly.

You didn't turn out fine if you think hitting kids is okay. If science won't change your mind, then you're not a good scientist. Your major is irrelevant, especially if you're willing to ignore 50 years of meta-analysis in your particular major, proving you are wrong. *shrug*
No, silly. It's a great idea to teach kids to solve their problems with violence. That's how we create a better society!

I believe that we are responsible about this one to some extent, but there has been 5 previous big extinctions and we didn't cause any of those. This is just mother nature taking care of herself/ her regular cycle. The strong survive the weak die.
The fact that something is a natural occurrence, or part of a natural cycle, does not de facto imply that it is a "good" thing. Extinction-level events are something we should strive to avert, because we should be aiming to minimise the level of suffering that life has to undergo.
"The strong survive the weak die" is a deeply simplistic view of evolution. And again, just because it is natural doesn't make it "good"

Currently reading The Magician King by Lev Grossman and True Balance by Dr. Sonia Choquette. Plus tarot, always reading tarot
I'm going to demonstrate how to make a thread more interesting than just a basic bitch list of books:
Wow, Nymh, I love the Magicians series! The way they describe the casting rituals with the finger tutting and whatnot adds a great layer of depth and realism to what could otherwise have just flopped into the "Gritty Potter" rut. Whoever bought those books for you must be such a great fella'.
What do you think about how Quentin's personality develops across the first two books? (Or doesn't, as some contend?)

And guys, please tell me you read the things and didn't all just click around...
@Sweeney does it depend on your level? Because almost no monster drops candy corn for me, and after I level up, only 2 (I think) drop it
It does, but not exclusively. You can get drops from any monster, but the chance is significantly higher for mobs closer to your level.

Spoileri'm starting to believe that love is not real and just body chemicals at work and it's making me depressed.
Why on earth would it being chemicals mean that it's not real? Everything you are is chemicals, and that's awesome!
