Sperm may be organic, but does it come from a free-range, vegetarian fed human, with omega-3 supplements?

I'm ok with people having guns, but I'm for tighter regulations. You're not going to get a majority opinion to pass legislation to ban weapons, and the wild-west neocon "everyone is armed" fantasy will never happen. Instead, the conversation needs to be about how to pass sensible regulations.

For instance, want to buy an AR-15? You better have proof of ownership for a gun safe, along with requisite inspections. Want to buy a handgun? Well, you better have proof of ownership of trigger locks, along with passing a safety course every X years.

Wow, I don't agree with the political position some people are taking. They must be morons!

I'm sorry, but my high school newspaper had better writing.

Hold on, before you start criticizing the Electoral College -- what do you propose to replace it with? Direct voting? A tournament system? Have you done the mathematical analysis? What does each individuals voting power come out to?

The Electoral College is a weighted voting system, meant to prevent dense metropolitan areas from having absolute control -- it forces a potential candidates to essentially have to geographically popular. This is positive attribute to the system.

That said, it's not the best system, and it has its issues -- especially since weighted voting power means that error get magnified:
