    It's not like Z-Talk has been relevant for the last year or so. Seriously, it's just emotes. ZD is never going to expand to Doctor Who, so why would we have over a dozen emotes dedicated to it? I wouldn't care if :buttmoney: was removed right now. Very few of these emotes get any use outside...

    Things That Are on Your Mind

    Jack Frost has never been something for people to believe in. He is the result of giving a phenomenon (cold weather, in this case) human-like qualities. This is a literary (rhetorical) device known as personification. Rise of the Guardians took it a step further and imagined Jack Frost as an...

    What's a Culture You'd Like to Know More About?

    Before I get into anything, keep in mind that Allah is Arabic for, "The God." Therefore, if you see, "God," ever mentioned, assume I am referring to Allah. As a Jew, I'm not allowed to use my god's name, so I refer to him as Adonai. Well, Islam is certainly a religion of peace. People love to...

    I Am Psychic

    There are 2.18 billion Christians, 1.6 billion Muslims, and 15 million Jews. So that comes out to almost four billion. Still a pretty large population, though Buddhism and Hinduism take up another huge chunk of the population. Do keep in mind that Buddhism is nontheistic, as well as a handful of...

    Mormon AMA/Discussion

    I'd like to point something out here. In many religions, it's entirely possible to come to your own conclusions in a lot of religions and philosophy. It's a very Western idea that you can only practice a single religion, and that religion only. In Eastern religion, we see how differing ideas can...

    General Zelda Who else Likes Toon Link More Than Adult Link?

    No one has a problem with you liking Toon Link, and that's the point. Your preference is subjective. He takes issue with people treating it as objective, which to my knowledge you don't do. So there is nothing to, "Deal with."

    General Zelda Who else Likes Toon Link More Than Adult Link?

    He has a problem with it because something like this is subjective. You liking Toon Link is fine, which he actually said, as evidenced here: He explicitly said he takes issue with when people act like Toon Link being the best is objective.

    Mormon AMA/Discussion

    John L. Brooke, one of the authors of a book cited by The Joker, is UPenn and Cornell educated and has a PhD. He's a reputable source, there's no two ways about it. Michael D.

    Skyward Sword Koloktos Reminds Me of the Hindu God Vishnu.

    We had this discussion a few nights ago in the ShoutBox. Koloktos is based on the Buddhist god, Asura. Asura is depicted as a six-armed, three-faced deity. This also works with the Buddhist theme of the Ancient Cistern - the three levels representing Hell, the earth, and the heavens above...

    Last Text/Phone Call You Received?

    Just got this from an unknown number: "I want my money in large, unmarked bills..." Not really sure what to make of that, but I'm having a hell of time trying to figure out the context. Last phone call was from my friend, who asked me why I wasn't sitting with her and my other friends at lunch.

    A Link Between Worlds Yuga's Name

    So I was reading around a bit, and I found an interesting little tidbit about the word, "Yuga." Apparently, in Hindu philosophy, it's the name of an epoch or era within a four-age cycle. It made me think about A Link Between Worlds' antagonist, Yuga. I wasn't really sure what to make of the...

    General Zelda What Zelda Character Do You Connect With the Most?

    Zant. A lot of it has to do with how I try to present myself. Like Zant, I try to appear calm, cool, and collected. However, much like Zant, that isn't always the case. I've had violent outbursts in the past, and my occasional signs of emotional instability can be blamed on the way in which I...

    The Confession Thread *SERIOUS REPLIES*

    The short reply is every single month is white history month. The long reply is much more complicated than that. First of all, what is, "White?" It's a blanket term, to put it simply. Do you know who is considered white? Europeans, Middle Easterners, and North Africans. Let's look at this...

    The Quality of Modern Pop Music

    Interesting analysis. I don't particularly agree with what you have to say, though. It has to do with how the people who listen to pop have changed. The teenagers of the 1960s are very different kind of teenagers from the 00s and 10s. As such, pop has drastically changed over time. Pop music...

    Is Contemporary Art Good or Bad?

    I don't know much about art, but I'll take a jab at some of this. Picasso, from my understanding, was not a realist. Why are you comparing him to a style of art that he doesn't even actively adhere to? He used a different kind of style, much like how in literature, we don't see 100% realism...

    Religous Clubs in School

    At my school, we have a few religious clubs - Bible Club and Jewish Student Union are two that I can think of off-hand - and no one really has a problem with them. I've never heard any horror stories of anti-theists coming to the clubs and being jerks to the members of the clubs. Likewise, I...

    Scotland to Secede From the UK Because of Growing Muslim Population?

    Curm and justac00lguy hit the nail on the head. I'd like to add that while there is a growing Muslim population in the UK, we see this trend in most of the West Europe. France and Spain have had a significant Muslim population for quite some time (Spain has 1.4 million Muslims in 2013). Italy...

    A Question to Muslims Why Did Mohommid Date Ayesha

    She was 11. It wasn't healthy at all. In fact, many 11 and 12 year old girls died of childbirth complications. However, that was how life was. More kids meant more manpower a few years down the line. Also more warriors. Our idea of morality should not and can not be applied to things back then.

    Is It Okay to Be Non-religious?

    I think you have your terms mixed up. What you're describing is your level of being conservative. A very conservative Jew keeps kosher, has been bar mitzvah'd, wears a kipot, observes every holiday, and so forth. However, I can be much more religious than the most conservative Jew - and the fact...

    Is It Okay to Be Non-religious?

    That's silly. You should by all means be able to pick and choose what aspects of your holy text you choose to believe and practice. I observe Yom Kippur and Rosh Hashanah, but not Shavuot. I don't keep kosher, either. Does that make me any less of a Jew? No. Religion is not something that is...

    Can We Be Independant And Still Succeed

    I have a few problems with this. The most prominent is this: what's the point of having money if we are entirely independent? Part of this entire scenario seems to imply that you don't need other people to get what you want, because you can simply do it yourself. So why then should money even...

    My Father Believes Marco Polo Encountered Dinosaurs.

    My Father Believes Marco Polo Encountered Dinosaurs.

    I don't think you understand the context of this. Marco Polo wrote in his book, The Travels of Marco Polo, when visiting a province known as Karajan: This may seem like a huge serpent, but bear in mind that he said they had two legs. This sounds very similar to the description of the Wyvern...
