Oh, maybe so - I was strictly commenting about the realization that people want to do harm to people (you). I say that there is no avoiding haters - let's break it down to make things simple. Withstanding the various forms of mental illness, harm is usually done to people for some kind of gain, whether it be a robbery of a wealthy person for monetary value or the head-kickin' of homeless people for notoriety or even personal satisfaction. Religious and gang violence falls within these two extremes, logically with a mix of both motives in most cases (including the 40 virgin case mentioned earlier). My point is that the cry, "people need to REALIZE this is GOING ON!" is kind of elementary in the vein of "no duh," and I wonder why people find that they need to remind their fellow man of such things as if they are the only people who can make sense of things.

On the topic of "death - big deal or no big deal?" I would say, quite apart from our discussion heretofore, that from a certain viewpoint it's "no big deal" any more than the rise and fall of any given historical civilization is of no practical value to the daily life of the average person, but from another viewpoint, specifically the observer of life - you and I - it is indeed a big deal, as our observations are contained within the subjective framework of "it's a huge deal because without it we can't even contemplate it."

There's a whole lot of stupid in this thread. When was the last time one of dem terrists suicide-bombed a starbucks in Texas? If the man's "bomb" was suspicious enough the easiest thing to do (which wasn't done) would have been to leave the area and call the police. I don't think anyone would fault you for being careful.

But how many people here actually think it was really a middle-eastern terrorist who "hates our freedom"? The talking heads have you all jumping at shadows.

Really? You would've cornered the man so you could get in a fist fight with him? And that seems like a better idea to you than leaving? WTF?

Where the did all you guys come up with the number 40? The number I've always heard was 72, but as far as I know the whole martyrdom = virgins thing doesn't have any real basis in the Koran and is more of a western myth than anything else.

"A couple observations. First, nonfundamentalist Muslims don't take the cosmological parts of the Koran any more literally than nonfundamentalist Christians take the biblical story of Genesis. They understand the bits about virgins and so on as metaphors for the ineffable joys of the afterlife. Second, while dreams of celestial babes may motivate the impoverished Palestinian kids who blow themselves up on Israeli street corners, a number of the 9-11 terrorists were older and had known something of earthly delights."

- from Dear Cecil, responding to a question about how many virgins we're talkin' about here.

I have nothing to comment about in this thread except for the whole "WE NEED TO WAKE UP GUYZ" part of it, which I thought I'd respond to.

Look here u lil fur ball, the only panties im twisting belong to you. Ch!t I have no clue about? I know you are a wannabe kno-it all Jack AZZ on a bike forum that ever rides. Thanks for the applaude but I don't need your meat beaters in y cheering sections, your palms are too hairy for one.


Hey skippy... public forum, I filled out the same 'registration' you did. Don't like what I have to say, don't read it...or go cry to the mods. You can post your post , and I'll post myne and put in my knowledge and experience when appropiate, can't handle it. Tough.

ulric, i dont have to cry to the mods, this bs forum isnt my life. I find it amazingly hilarious that that a person like you (who claims his intelligence) always sits up in here and tries to pass off ur idiot-ocracy to the rest of us. In my opinion, I have yet to see where your "knowledge and experience" was ever appropiate.

Let me get real picky... personaly I think the post should have been put in the Off-topic section and not the General Discussion (moto-related) forum.
The title was, blankly put BS and it really sounds like they saw a , with some misc shyte and someone's imagination got away with them a bit. <shrug> but I wasn't there and I'm going based on what was provided. Much like people tried to tell GB and his kid... Don't post it, don't bring it up if you don't want to risk being called on it.
I dont give flying $uc* where you think it belongs b/c you are not a mod and have no say-so. "Don't like what I have to say, don't read it..." same applies to u pissy, if you dont like where its posted dont read it. I wont give you the option of crying to the mods, thats what bytches do.
