Re: How important is physical attraction?

That's not shallow,...and that brotha wasn't merely "unattractive"...he didn't have good hygene...and that's a whole different ballgame. Attractive IMO is good hygene. Dirt, crust, or ash on Denzel would be a turnoff. And I'm not even going near the hair you described. On another note, I've dated a guy who was "unatractive" to me when I first met him.

Re: The Sons and Daughters of Hip Hop

Rebelling is our release. Revolution is our relief. The "entertaining" aspects of hip hop makes it a "form" of escapism. No one is responsible for the misintrepretation of our ART except the ones who misinterpreted. The last thing HIP HOP is, is apologetic. "We didn't land on Plymouth Rock..." So we have no reason to apologize for "our" trangressions and conform to social standards through our music. As I said, we rebel, and we clearly have a reason to.

The total amount of matter and energy remains the same... Yes.. conservation of mass and energy... But thermodynamics also tells us that entropy increases... in a closed spontaneous physical system, things (patterns of matter/energy) tend to run down from organized forms to less organized forms... Or Things Fall Apart... And even on this logic... When a match is struck, it's matter is transformed into light, heat, and ash... Just because energy survives doesn't mean it survives in a...

Well, it's not that easy a question for me. There used to be, in the mall below the WTC, a sign that said that there were over 600,000 people in lower Manhattan during any given minute during the work day. That means that the population of Baltimore, or San Fran, was covered in ash that day. Had that been a chemical attack, there would be over 600,000 dead. That means that this is not a question to be answered based on how one feels about the US government, or about GW Bush. Anybody who does...

Re: Rap, Thug Imagery ruining US

FYI While I often find myself wincing when I hear someone say axe instead of ask, at one time, such pronunciation was commonplace among the Southern white population due to where they came from (middle and south English dialects). This was the dialect most influential on enslaved Africans. 'Ask' was associate with northern English (as in England) dialects. Moreover, if you look up the etymology of the ask, you will see that Middle English had rendered it as ox, ax, ex, ask, esk, ash, esh,...

Jim, I was just adding a little linguistic information. As I noted in the beginning, I do whince whenever I hear it. And yes, it may well be linguistic arrogance.
