Are you kidding me? ⒶppŁe is even more totalitarian over your computer experience than MiKKKroSSoft! As an example: Try to dd if=<the Mac's hard drive> of=<your PC's hard drive> and see what happens. Your computer will end up unbootable -- just like AppŁe wants.

--> http://www.notalwaysright.com
has many stories where you think that people really can't be that dumb but apparently indeed are.
of course take it with a grain of salt, since you can't validate the stories as real or not.

Still, some very good laughs there

Totally agree with that, who deals out blows has to take stick. (Wow, is that translated right?)

The KKK are NOT real Christians. They CLAIM to be, and they are OBVIOUSLY wrong because the Bible does NOT condone that kind of OUTRAGEOUS behavior. In fact, the Bible LOOKS DOWN UPON such behavior. To say that the KKK are real Christians is completely OFFENSIVE and RUDE.

Their stance with white supremacy is OBVIOUSLY hypocritical, and they are simply using CHRISTIANITY as a vehicle to drive an INSANE agenda.

"There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus."
-- Galatians 3:28

"Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you."
-- Ephesians 4:32

"By this shall all [men] know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another."
-- John 3:15

"And you shall not wrong a stranger or oppress him, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt.
-- Exodus 22:21

"Thus says the LORD, "Do justice and righteousness, and deliver the one who has been robbed from the power of his oppressor. Also do not mistreat or do violence to the stranger, the orphan, or the widow; and do not shed innocent blood in this place."
-- Jeremiah 22:3

"These also are sayings of the wise. To show partiality in judgment is not good."
-- Proverbs 24:23

"'There shall be one standard for you; it shall be for the stranger as well as the native, for I am the LORD your God.'"
-- Leviticus 24:22

"And he [Peter] said to them, "You yourselves know how unlawful it is for a man who is a Jew to associate with a foreigner or to visit him; and yet God has shown me that I should not call any man unholy or unclean."
-- Acts 10:28

Totally agree with you my friend!! But there are also a lot of other groups out there that are "banning" things because its not in the bible. Gay marriage, abortion, violent video games, teaching evolution in schools etc. However, WE DON'T FULLY KNOW WHAT'S IN THE BIBLE!!! Books were taken out of the bible WAYYY back when when Constantine was emperor of the Roman Empire. Our modern day bible is the same one that he distributed to his people. So many books were destroyed and never read by us. We also have books like the Book of Thomas which is blasphemy to read in the Christian religion. Honestly, the religions are just as corrupt as the people who take it too far sometimes. Always has been, always will be.

If Kenny would stop his stupid likening of Microsoft and Apple to the Nazis, etc, then maybe this thread would stay on topic.
Question:
If someone's dual-booting XP and 7, is that what they call double-glazing?
