My Santoku knife will be flashing and flying through the air next week, as in football fashion I "tackle" Thanksgiving.

Any other cooking enthusiasts having a house full of family this year? Whatcha cookin'? (Besides turkey, of course...)

I'm going to be part of the house full with friends.

There is however some really hot stuff.
Habanero!

They have a very nice taste but it's VERY hot.
So be careful. Just some pieces of the fruits is enough.

I asked my supervisor at work about them. He is mexican. He said and I quote. "They will make you scream in the bathroom."

Candy, now these ...

are getting a bit spicy.

Eric is looking forward to the bowl invitations to see where Wisconsin may go.

There is the Zaxby's Heart of Dallas Bowl
the Quick Lane Bowl
the New Era Pinstripe Bowl
the National University Holiday Bowl
the Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl
the Foster Farms Bowl
the Capital One Orange Bowl
the Buffalo Wild Wings Citrus Bowl
the Outback Bowl
the TaxSlayer Bowl
and of course the ty d bowl ;-)
but I don't think the cotton, rose, fiesta and sugar are in the picture.

Any predictions?

I see here we have one camp that see the word rapist and all they can visualize in their mind is the act happening 24/7/365. That is the only way their comments can make sense. I suspect that is the same way a KKK member thinks of high pigment humans. Essentially a nearly uncontrollable hate.

The issue here is rapist is a human. Period the end. {If you want that in math, the set humans includes a member rapist)

If you don't empathize for humans, fine. Seems that one side claims criminals are incapable of that. Does that mean that all who can't empathize for humans are criminal?

Seems I started this by quoting the Eighth Amendment, so here is is again:
Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.
Janneseti had just posted the Golden Rule.
One should treat others as one would like others to treat oneself

So I assume that those wishing cruel and unusual punishments inflicted on humans with them for themselves. Perhaps they know something about themselves we don't.

I hear conservative fundamentalists argue for an eye for an eye and they ten seconds later scream how horrible sharia law is. It appears as if they are having some form of psychotic episode violently arguing both for and against the same thing.

Put them together:
Nearly uncontrollable hate
Inability to empathize for humans
Wishing for cruel and unusual punishments
Violently arguing both for and against the same thing

I wonder who society needs protection from?

All thought these are a problem i have only herd of the Plague in poor areas and poor country's antibiotic's are causing different bugs to be resistant and there less dangerous but the Plague , well how many died in the last great outbreak before antibiotics , ten's of millions !

and would Ebola be as big a problem if there was not so much poverty in the country's where it is ?.


Well, Glenn,

Plague (caused by Yersinia pestis) isn't just a problem in poor nations. A friend of mine I went to High School with back in the 1970's died of it in the early 1980's. He caught it on vacation to West Texas, but didn't get sick until he had returned home. Yersinia pestis is endemic in fleas on rodents in this part of the world.

Thankfully, the strains of Yersinia pestis that usually circulate in the wild around here are not all that dangerous, or there would be a lot more cases of it. As it is, the USA still gets 10 to 15 cases a year.

Very much endemic here in California. Nearly every year they catch rodents testing positive and have to engage in flea control on wild animals.

We are getting ever more restricted for new "landfill" sites to dump refuse and so burning it in whatever way is now the favored alternative.

So the favored alternative is the release the carbon in the trash in the form of CO2 into the atmosphere. And ML1 is promoting this as a solution to the emission of GHG's.

He has to believe it or he would not be the best man for the job. I am still not sure why Australia has taken so much time, energy and expense in this quest. Is Malaysia paying them to continue the search, or Boeing?

I think the Aussies are caring and giving people.

EMPATHY:
The intellectual identification with or vicarious experiencing of the feelings, thoughts, or attitudes of another.

You guys Identify, or have vicarious experiencing of the feelings, thoughts, or attitudes of another (AKA Rapists)?.
Either you guys Identify with Rapists, or don't understand English.
As I said, and was stupidly, or worse, attacked for saying:
I DONT Identify, or have vicarious experiencing of the feelings, thoughts, or attitudes of Rapists nor Murderer's.
Are you guys THAT Stupid?
Answer: Yes

Cyde, it does strike me as odd that you can't feel empathy for other people's suffering. If I saw a rapist being tortured to death I will still feel empathy for them and want to stop it. You seem to be able to switch your empathy on an off at will.
So either you are incredibly brutalised and desensitised or you are a psychopath.

@Es99 Do you live on this planet?
Who can feel empathy to a person that does not feel any empathy at all, none whats so ever?
Now you even suggest that people not having your fantasy idea of empathy are brutalised or psychopaths.
Get real.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antisocial_personality_disorder wrote:
ICD-10 It is characterized by at least 3 of the following:
    Callous unconcern for the feelings of others;
    Gross and persistent attitude of irresponsibility and disregard for social norms, rules, and obligations;
    Incapacity to maintain enduring relationships, though having no difficulty in establishing them;
    Very low tolerance to frustration and a low threshold for discharge of aggression, including violence;
    Incapacity to experience guilt or to profit from experience, particularly punishment;
    Marked readiness to blame others or to offer plausible rationalizations for the behavior that has brought the person into conflict with society.


I'd suggest anyone witnessing torture to death or a rapist and not feeling anything is exhibiting 3 things, possibly 4 on the list.

So I think ES is pretty much on target.

& from what has been seen over the past decade, a self-serving one!

Give it another couple of decades and you will catch up, but you will have to toss in some activist labor unions and more corruption in your political process.

Police fail to report 1 in 5 crimes

Excellent police work over here. Quality assurance is making sure a perfect product is delivered. I'm sure you are so proud of the fine police force you have.

However, a campaign group has claimed the plant is just another incinerator...

OMG someone spoke the truth. All that waste would have been buried trapping the carbon, now it is going to escape.

On any given day, what prevents a criminal from being a victim? I'm sure there will be lots of vengeful answers to this, all which reveal the thoughts of the speaker. That or silence.

Nothing.

Anyone serving in a Large Inner-City American PD have ALSO protected the Criminals from OTHER Criminals. Nothing unusual. Policing is not about morality. Just the Law.

Empathy for NAZI's and Rapists? Put myself into their shoes? Try to understand them?

Very naïve, and self destructive.

You should do it.
You might understand that most criminals were victims before they ended up as a criminals. It is often the reason they end up as a criminals. Prisons are filled with victims. You can't pretend to care about victims if you don't care about the ones that fell so low that they ended up in jail.

Victims are people, they have all different feelings about the people the committed the crimes against them. Some forgive and some want them dead. There is no such thing as this idealised victim that you have in your head.

What I can tell you about victims that they do have in common is none of them want it to happen again.

If you really cared about victims you'd make that your priority and figure out the best way to make that happen, even if that means treating criminals like human beings.

Es,

He is a former police officer. He was in the vengeance business. Without some class of subhuman victimizers he could not do vengeance. If the victimizers are also victims and therefore human, how could he extract vengeance? After all it is only through being able to discriminate a class as subhuman that he could operate. You can find a similar thought process at a Klavern.

So, what's your answer?

Want to try putting something specific you desire advice upon? Frequently being on the same page helps in a discussion. Some times reducing an issue to a specific thing causes the uncertainty to go away. You should try it.

The truth is that they are mostly likely anarchists and this is their chosen way to try to bring down the government and accepted law and order.

ROTFLMAO.

I wish for the world to learn tolerance, and the ability to know how to say, "excuse me", "please", "thank you", "you are welcome", but most importantly "I'm sorry."

Let me add, "I forgive you", to that list.
