bull in a china shop looking for nose rings and energy drinks by Anonymous on June 22nd, 2014, 11:10 pm
does it take one to know one... or shouldn't there be a standard range definition for the set of all irrational values... or for the cumulative infinity of the group of sets of all rational means... sure the rules of six degree's is about a 50/50 split... like flipping a coin... just an idea in a file let sit in the guts of a box on a shelf... i suppose, add sequence to the chaos and time will twist it with entropy...
if i could speak with my mouth full alittle more clearly, really enounciate the practice of marbles in my mouth... well everlasting gobstoppers... wonka and the nerds who projected the great conflict between nerds and thier eternal adversary... no no... its too presumptuous a thing to have any idea whatsoever as to how one of us will react to the mention of its name...
maybe its up in my grill right now... thats how to use that term right... grill = face... and its got itself wedged in tight to a blindspot somewhere between my eyes maybe thats what happens when you get you...

Why Expressivists of Value should love Minimalism of Truth by Anonymous on June 13th, 2011, 11:59 am
By Michael Smith, from Analysis. 54.1 (1994): 1-12.

There is a pleasing economy to minimalism. By accordance to it we needn't claim there to be such thing as a property of truth, nor must we claim that "true" loses meaning or utility as a result. (Disquotational and endorsing uses of "true", following Rorty, demonstrate this.) Expressivism shares a similar economy. Those who wish not to affirm the existence genuine evaluative properties may hold the role of evaluative discourse to be distinct from those of other areas that happen to share their surface features.

Now, if minimalism is a fast track to cognitivism for any speech acts with the appropriate syntactic form, expressivism may be in a bad position. Due to the way evaluative sentences can be used in all the other ways in which truth-assertable ones can be, it is held that evaluative sentences are themselves truth-apt. Being a variant of non-cognitivism however, expressivism of evaluative...

Tertian Ague - The Royal fit by toucana on July 7th, 2012, 3:00 pm
Not long ago a chance remark overheard in a BBC Radio 4 history program sent me to the computer to check a detail on the reign of King James I of England (James VI of Scotland), the first monarch of the Stuart dynasty and the only son of Mary Queen of Scots. Try as I might, I couldn't remember his exact dates, nor the circumstances of his death either, even though I had once studied the period in detail at school.

I soon discovered that James I had died at the age of 59 in 1625. The surprise was that one contributory factor in his demise was described as 'tertian ague'. This was a wholly unfamiliar term, what on earth could it be ? An ague I knew was a type of shivering fit associated with a fever, it comes from the Latin 'acuta febris' - (acute fever). I recalled reading of Sir Walter Raleigh defiantly puffing his pipe on Tower Hill and saying "It is the hour of the day when my ague comes upon me..."

So, a fever fit that appeared with clockwork regularity...

Vivisection by rko619 on November 9th, 2009, 4:34 pm
I didn't want to put this in the actual forum as i feel i would be greatly ridiculed for it, so instead I would like to start a debate here, in a free speaking area,

Vivisection is always an interesting point of discussion, I feel it will be even better in a science community, so,

1) what are your views on vivisection (2) why?

I want a debate to spring up between us all here.

Personally I am pro-vivisection because although computers are an option, its almost impossible to replicate a perfect biological body on a computer program, even if, there would still be errors.
