    The fact that the brave keep surviving through out every generation is that
    they breed when very young, so being killed in battle doesn't dwindle the bold
    population. These are the guys that are screwing every hole in sight. Raping and
    pilging every village like the Genghis Khans before them. Being brave also
    applies to these hoodlums too.

    If anything its the cowards that are dwindling.

    My wife bought me an Ann talking doll for Christmas (to go along
    with the 'W' talking doll from the year before). I may put them
    on my desk at work, just to piss off the libs.

  5. Don't listen to him, W., he has corn soaked in lye, deliberately
    abuses MOSFETs to destruction, forces innocent junctions into
    avalanche at will and produces macabre jars of thick yellow INSECT
    JUICE.

    He-he-hoo-hoo-ha-ha! And I apply kilovolts to tiny 0603 resistors
    until they die in a puff of smoke! I run GaAs fets at 16 volts! I
    sneer at safe operating areas! I bolt transistors directly to anodized
    heatsinks! If Marlon Brando had been an engineer, he'd be me! Or I'd
    be him! Whatever.

    That said, I think I'll go bake some brownies. The Joy of Cooking
    recipe is pretty good, with pecans.

    Nope, you missed it, they get to stick around and make babies.
    The thrill-seekers die young, if they die too young to breed,
    then they don't get to. Instead it's a dominant/recessive gene
    pair, like brown and blue eyes, so that even the timid can
    have a few brave children.

    Dunno, never heard it called that. It's just Fried Grits to us. My
    wife (from Boston) and my kid (from California) and my bird (from
    Brazil, maybe) all like grits, plain and fried. The cat doesn't care
    for it.

    Here's a trick: Mix a little honey into cooked grits and Voila! It
    tastes just like Cream of Wheat.


    Joke:

    Did you hear that Buckwheat from Our Gang became Muslim? Now he wants
    to be called Karim O' Wheat!

  13. Who the hell is Al Farken? I'm guessing this topic is being directed to our
    US audience..

    This is not a dna thing, it's society that sets up the rules that lets the
    cowards survive. In the jungle it's survival of the fittest.

    Al Franken is a hippy dippy US comedian from the 1970s.

    Like most of the folks in the US entertainment industry, he
    forgot that he wasn't an expert at anything, but rather just
    played the role.

    Al Franken is a hyper liberal so, he has decided to play the
    part of "liberal talk show host" to counter all of the hyper
    conservative talk show hosts in the us radio market.

  16. A leftist (or "liberal") US comedian and writer. My earliest recollection
    of him was as a writer for the original Saturday Night Live US TV comedy
    show. He also had some minor parts in skits on the show and did a 2-man
    standup-comic act with another writer as Franken and Davis. He came again
    into prominence when he wrote a rebuttal to Rush Limbaugh (a US
    "conservative" radio comedian) a few years back entitled _Rush Limbaugh is a
    Big Fat Idiot_. Last year he had another best-seller abour Fox TV and other
    "conservative" news programming "Fair and Balanced". Fox bortively sued
    over the book's title ("Fair and Balanced" is part of their advertising
    slogan) and gave Franken the gift of pushing his book to the top of the
    best-seller lists before it was released (which says something about
    "best-seller" lists).

    snip
    Al is not a hyper liberal, he is moderate, middle of the road American. He only
    looks farther to the left because of the fascists that have taken over the name
    conservative and the AM dial. No one that supported our war in Iraq or these
    huge budget deficits is a conservative. Rush, Savage, Inghram, and Coulter are
    not only preaching fascism, they are using the tried and true techniques
    perfected by the Nazis!

    Fascism: 1 : often capitalized : a political philosophy, movement, or regime
    (as that of the Fascisti) that exalts nation and often race above the
    individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a
    dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible
    suppression of opposition.

    Humans are social critters, even in the jungle. We are weak, naked,
    slow, un-armed and un-armored, and we win by forming tribes who
    include specialists. Warriors are a necessary minority of any tribe
    that successfully combats its most deadly enemies, other tribes.

    It *is* a DNA thing.

    Fitness involves the capacity to work out whether a contemplated
    action is brave or merely foolhardy, and the sense to work out whether
    the rewards are worth the risk. The foolish and the foolhardy do tend
    to describe the more perceptive as cowards, while the proper use of
    the word should be confined to those who can't nerve themselves to
    take even a small risk for a likely profit.
