See, that makes sense too. This is why I can't take a side on this issue, and why I think that both sides are probably a little less than right. (Well, what do you expect? Nobody has all the answers.)

The intensity of gravity drops as distance increases, but never quite to zero.

There are soooo many reasons why "a passing 12th planet" doomsday-scenario could not happen. The phrase itself is as close to an oxymoron as you're likely to read.

>There are soooo many reasons why "a passing 12th planet" doomsday-scenario could not happen

Anything is possible, I guess. But I'm not going to mope around about it. If the 12th planet passes by our planet and causes some huge disaster that kills billions of people, oh well. And even if I am one of them, oh well. Shit happens. The only sure way of knowing if it is really going to happen is to wait around till the projected time(spring/summer 2003 I believe)and see if it really happens. If not, then add it to the book of errored prophecys.

HAHAHA this thread is a huge tired battle... the Nerds with thier facts and the Hippies with thier wild ideas and concepts... neither one can convince the other of anything but they both keep droning on... its funny to watch from my end.

In reply to:

>>I'm sorry, but anyone who drops out of school is going to agree with other dropouts. So agreeing with another dropout isn't much of a strong argument. Get a non-dropout to agree with ya dropouts, then i'll be impressed.




I am not a dropout. On the contrary, I am an honor student. I agree with shroomism completely, and admit that 1) high school is not for everyone, 2)Many classes opress individuality and individual though, 3) The information tought is sometimes invalid.

I am really only doing for the rare good classes and the opporitunity to go to college.

> 2)Many classes opress individuality

And valuing individualism is adhering to modern culture. Thus, individualism is conformity.

Goddamnit KID, you'll argue any damn point won't you. Doesn't matter what the standpoint, you'll argue it.

I personnaly chose to drop out, becuase I like others realised in my freshman year that I already contained the knowledge that highschool had to offer. I get shit all the time about it, people judge education and intelligence by a diploma. Our educational system in this country is a joke. Anyone with half the brain god gave a gifted dog realises that. Shroomism seems to me to be one of the more intelligent people on here, and I sollute you for it.

It does seem as if kid will argue any point. I just wonder what his response to this will be. Anyway, you bring up a good point when you say that intelligence is measured by a diploma. I graduated, and I did so with semi good grades, however I have a friend who screwed off for three and a half years, and literaly finished the vast majority of his work in the last 5 weeks of school. On the other hand my girlfriend graduated second in her class, but geuss what? Same diploma! My point.... we all have the same piece of paper stating that we are "smart". I personally believe that one has more knowledge to gain from real world experiences than any book can teach you. Unfortunatly, with society's infatuation with being "knowledgeable" Many of the non-schooled inteligent people get passed off as eccentric or crazy. But what do I know?

Yeah, I guess so. When I see something that I've found holes in, I nail it.

And that one was a pretty cliche expression of our counter-culture. Blah blah blah, individualism. Paradoxically, valuing individualism is embracing the culture which the counterculture is supposedly opposing.

I think it's amusing.

I despise psychobabble. So fuck you. If you wish to turn it into an insult, call it the result of having gotten too much of an education which involves cultural constructivist theory.

i as well droped out of school when i was young.
i failed the 7th grade because i missed 70 somethin school days.. although i passed all the class's , except one F in Math.
only reason i failed that class was because the teacher hated me and my individual ways. after that.. i just revoked against it and started reading on my own.. anything and everything i could get ahold of.

now that my girl friends in college.. she comes home and i help her with her assighnments in world religion and sociology.
kinna odd i think.. that i can do her work.

i find that from my lack of school.
i was no longer being supresed into what i was "Supost" to become.
instead i spent countless hours sitting home alone thinking unto myself.
wich has brought me to were i am now. wich is wonderful to me.

just thought id comment that i think people that drop out of school early.. 13-17 , but still have the intent and inner knowledge to strive for something and learn.
end up just as smart or smarter than those grinded through school years.
i may not be able to do math as well, spell as well, or know as much about government systems.
but in the mind class's ive taken from inner teachers.. none of those are worth crap

Also im an aquarius too , well... just one year younger..
go figure!

i just find it odd that from what little words have been derived of our lifes paths there extremly simular.

Being so well versed in this phenomenon must be painful. You should find something to balance that out, use your education to effect positive change, lest you find yourself old and bitter. (or young and bitter, as you seem to be somewhat already.)

I don't have the education you do in that area, and I'm pretty thanful for that... I'm a bitter enough person as it is. If I developed and honed it into an "art" as it appears you have, I'd be in rough shape. You know far too much about this stuff to be peaceful, in my opinion. This is of course not an insult, I find it quite fascinating. Why do we torture ourselves? Surely life would be a lot simpler if you had chosen a different route. (I wouldn't choose simplicity for the sake of simplicity, but it has it's benefits.)

Or perhaps I'm missing the point entirely, but I think I know where you're coming from.

I like how you call it an "art" because in a way it is a very unique form of expression for me. It doesn't make me bitter though when I point something out, though I know I can sound (look) bitter. I find what I study points out some rather amusing contradictions.

I didn't think it would be very fun having that outlook, you know? I get a type of pleasure from noticing and pointing certain things out but it's usually a double edged blade... (It's often the same types of things but with a much lower degree of skill.)
I was serious too, you have elevated it to an artform. :wink:

I do envy your vocabulary. Most of your posts are put together impeccably. It's hard to argue with someone who can disect your post and leave it bleeding for all to see...

This thread seems to have died of but..
Well, Im not one to flame, but after reading through this thread I have to say RedfluX and Swami came off as rather close minded people, the kind that might appear otherwise for a short while, and ofcourse do not think of themselves as such (then again does anyone). I hope i'm wrong!
Since I live in Finland I don't know diddly about the schooling situation in the US or Canada, but over here it's a bit better then what you described, though not much. There's alot wrong with the system, simply put. Im studying at a university right now, not to bad.
Oh, and since several of you have mentioned your signs, I am a (..v?dur, what's that in english again..) Aries. Or well, according to other sources (there's a dispute over what sign someone born the 20th april certain years has it seems) a Taurus. Must say I feel more ruled by Mars then Venus so ill go with Aries! :smile:
Trail Blazer, I'm not a dropout and I agree with the dropouts, hope you're impressed, lol.
DrGonzo401, I agree with you dude, nerds against hippies (in a generalized way ofcourse).
As for a 12th planet? I do not believe it exists, based on scientific evidence. That does not however mean that I am 100% certain of it's not existence. Im not 100% on anything, even my own existance.
I say, let's see what the great spirit (god or whatever you wish to call it) out there has to say! Now, if my shrooms would just grow a bit faster! :tongue:

There, more meaningless babble from me.
