Er, I love Old Boy myself. But how on earth would you classify it as a comedy? (Though I must admit the dude jumping to his death through the car while holding onto his pet poodle as the main character just smiles and walks away did make me chuckle).
You want equality? When may men have the right to bodily integrity? Or are you suggesting women should enjoy living with mutilated genitals as well for equality?
For the record, just about any feminist I've heard give an opinion on the subject has been against male circumcision as well.
Domo arigato, fister roboto!
Maybe they're the more sane ones after all.
It's impossible to tell whether or not an answer is "fallacy ridden garbage" if you don't bother to listen to it in the first place. Sure the answer could be crap, but if you don't bother evaluating it objectively just because you're assuming the established thinking is always crap then you aren't thinking critically.
Sure. But the problem is that far too many people who question established institutions or doctrines refuse to listen when they get answers.
Just adding my own simple, non-calculus solution, to the mix.
When the radius of the earth is r we have...
Length of string around earth = 2*pi*r
Length of string around earth and poodle evenly = 2*pi(r + poodle)
Subtract former from the latter and it's 2*pi*r + 2*pi*poodle - 2*pi*r, so just 2*pi*poodle more.
Perhaps for his encore he'll move on to posting jokes about airplanes and twin towers for real giggles.

They built a pyramid, we havn't.
How can we tell them how to build it better, when we cant even achieve what they did 4000+ years ago? lol
But my point is it may be the only thing preventing us from achieving the same is an unwillingness to be blatantly immoral (not to mention finding a compelling reason to build one in the first place). If that's the case then, yeah, we might very well have grounds for telling the a better way to do the same thing. You never know. *shrug*
A big reason we don't build something similar of that scale now is that we tend to frown upon obvious slave labor nowadays.
No need to tell Noah anything. The flood story is a myth.
Testosterone does not cause assholish-ness, per se, so much as it exacerbates it.
Oh, so kind of like alcohol then.
Electrons interfere with themselves, because the fluctuation (which is the electron) exists in the full region between the source and screen. The interference pattern is the same no matter how slowly (in terms of electron rate) you fire the electrons, so build up is not a concern.
And this is an important point. I'm not a physicist, but one thing that helped me understand this better is to consider firing a single electron (for example) at the two slits one at the time. It could be at the rate of one per minute, one hour or whatever.
Every electron that makes it through to the screen behind the two slits will hit it at a single point. Nothing unusual there. However, if you make a histogram on the screen based on how frequently each spot gets hit by an electron you'll see the interference pattern you'd expect from a wave being split in two from the two slits. So each electron is a wave that travels through both slits, not one or the other.
Only if you're really really lucky.
