@13, I think I'd rather go to argentina than america, judging purely from the pics

@18 - See, this is one of the things that organised religions got right: The Retreat.
Take a week or two off work for a holiday, book a cabin/lodge/room/etc somewhere energising for you (the sea, the mountains, the bush), go by yourself, tell everyone you're turning your phone off for a week, then do it! Well, flight mode at least..
That way you're not putting anyone on hold, you get some time to be yourself away from the people you know, and you probably get a really good holiday too :-)

I think it was kind of Dan to provide us all with NAL's email address.

@8 not to say that it's real or not, but it is possible that a devoted catholic won't have sex before they get married. She may have been one of them (my bro was another; I couldn't wait, so I stopped being catholic.)

Regarding that Australian raid: 800 police raided 25 properties, arrested 15 people and charged 1.
Right when there's new "Anti-Terror" legislation up for debate in parliament.
I'm glad they foiled the plot, but they sure milked it for all it was worth.

I agree with Dan: our leaders do seem to be doing what ISIL want, which is very disturbing..

It always comes down to the evidence.
Face the facts!!
I'm not seeing a lot of evidence for your arguments, Seattleblues.

On an unrelated issue, what's your opinion on vaccinating children, Seattleblues?

When I read this story in my news feed, I was expecting Dan to post on it under a headline similar to "9yo accidentally second-amendments instructor to death."

@ Polyamorous Polymath:

Start dancing Argentine tango. Done well, it goes a long way to getting that intense emotional connection with another person, and you get to do it with 20 different people in a night.
Plus you'll learn a new life skill that will help stave off dementia :-p
