I'd sooner kill myself than be burden to children who didn't want/couldn't really afford to have me around. No adult wants to turn into a dependent child again.

Human Rights wouldn't mean much if we could pick and choose the humans that were granted them.

The idea that space exploration is a waste of money is laughable given our propensity to waste money on countless other things. Space colonisation could be our only hope of survival so I'd say it's...

I saw this in a shop today and did a double take. Even for the Sun it's a pathetic story. Who could possibly be interested in such nonsense?

I'd take each guest on a case by case basis - they can have a plus 1 if there's hardly anyone else there they know and would be totally on their own otherwise, etc.

Yes, but saying 'When someone commits a crime, any crime, they know they are to be punished' doesn't bear much relevance to the many cases of someone flying off the handle for whatever reason.

Time goes more quickly the older you get. So if you're over, say, 25, then no it isn't.

It was relevant because Princess Essex implied that all crimes were pre-meditated and thought through. Obviously not the case, especially with murder.

Are there any Christians on here that support the DP? I've always found that particularly odd, though of course it's normal in the US.

No, likes are not conducive to discussion. You'll just get a bunch of people making pithy remarks that happen to agree with the majority and soon there's a 'likes' race on.

A plague on both their houses. This thread is a microcosm of why it'll never be resolved - even the most impartial observer seems to feel the need to get entrenched in a side after a certain point.

Come on, regardless of one's Royalist tendencies it's hard to deny it's an incredibly dull drone of an anthem. I'm not even religious but I'd happily take Jerusalem's stirring melody over that.
