YOU KNOW WHAT GRINDS MY GEARS?

Those idiots that say the PS MOVE is a rip off of the wii when it's totally different and how people say Kinect or Playstation is copying one or the other because they both require cameras.

WELL NO. THE PS MOVE HAS EXTREMELY MORE ADVANDED TECHNOLOGY AND GETS IT'S AFFECT DIFFERENTlY. But ofcourse the wii and PS MOVE both do the same thing, except PS Move just does it better.

THE KINECT USES 3 different types of lenses/ camera thing! A normal webcam camera and 2 infered ones. The PS Eye is just a webcam.

It's a cool thing but would probably get boring later. Plus gaming shouldn't require TO MUCH exercise. Still very cool.

I played the PS move at Frys Electronics, very nice accuracy. Fun also.

As always, well said, Random. The abortion doctor extreme was on my mind when I wrote the post, but I had hoped to avoid opening the door to sidebar debates. A fun synchronicity: Deists were characterized by a belief in a "clock-maker G-d", who sets things in motion, then sits back and watches the story unfold. As I read your post, I was watching an anime with a character who had already reminded me of a clockmaker G-d: He writes a story to watch it come to life, which is actually propelled in part by clock gears (at least from the spoilers I read). Talk about grinding ones gears....

Prop. 8: Because I live here and can see day to day the couples who would be married if not for it. The possibility that I would have to go across the country to be legally "Married". Just that last jump between "Civil Union" and "Marriage" that the majority says, "You are a lesser citizen." with.

I have consolation in that I live in a rather open-minded county of the state. I attend a very politically-active school; a good portion of the student body wore purple today "Spirit Day" as to symbolize our support for the GLBTQ community among other things, and that no-one should give up just yet.

Okay, speaking as someone who disagrees with you, lemme explain why I feel the way that I do about it.

Marriage is a religiously based thing.  Many religions are opposed to homosexuality, and the many that aren't have their marriage traditions deigned for a man and a woman.

Do I oppose two people of the same gender being "together"?  No, not really.  Just because I don't agree with these lifestyles, no matter what reasons the "practicioners" may have for living them, it doesn't mean that I believe that they should be denied being legally bound to one another.

An option that I personally favor is the idea that everyone gets a civil union; that'd be where everyone is equal.  Once doing this, those that are religious can still uphold their belief systems while those that don't can still be together on a legal scale.

Another thing that really grinds my gears: lots of attention being focused on college football when it's completely B"C"S. ;D

@ Ally......Heh. If it were, who would you want to have write it, and in what genre, and what fandom?

@ W_O: Er, no. Yegads no. Marriage is not a "religiously based thing". It may be that when you personally enter a marriage, if you do, you will conceive of it that way for yourself. Marriage is a love-based thing. Some people may attribute finding their soulmate to providence; I have no problem with that. Love is spiritual; heck, making love can be spiritual. But to reduce marriage to a religious exercise is just plain not accurate. Plenty of people other than ordained religious figures perform marriages (e.g., justices of the piece, ship captains). Plenty of people who are not religious exercise the right to get married. Oh and BTW, plenty of religions *do not* institutionalize heterocentrism. Pagan, Wiccan, Reconstructionist Jewish, Reform Jewish, Jewish Renewal, Unitarian Universalist, and the United Church of Christ (http://www.nytimes.com/2005/07/05/national/05church.html)
are among those supporting same-sex marriages or even actively performing them. This is not even to get into the pre-Western cultures amongst whom same-sex relationships are encouraged, especially prior to entering het marriages.

@ W_O: Er, no. Yegads no. Marriage is not a "religiously based thing".

Yeah, it is Ellen.  I'm not even sure how you could think that it's not.  Just because various denominations of different religions are accepting gay marriages now, it doesn't mean that it was always this way.  If it were, then there wouldn't be any arguments on the subject.

Plenty of people other than ordained religious figures perform marriages (e.g., justices of the piece, ship captains).

Justices were originally appointed by kings, such as Richard the Lionheart, who were seen as being ordained by God, in order to ensure that the laws were followed, only later to have the power to wed.  As for the captains, that priviledge was given to them so that they could preside over funerals for their fallen soldiers.  If I remember correctly, they also had to get approval from a king (or a queen too, I'd imagine).

plenty of religions *do not* institutionalize heterocentrism. Pagan, Wiccan, Reconstructionist Jewish, Reform Jewish, Jewish Renewal, Unitarian Universalist, and the United Church of Christ (http://www.nytimes.com/2005/07/05/national/05church.html)
are among those supporting same-sex marriages or even actively performing them

I never said that it was; there's also the Greeks, and various eastern beliefs, such as Hinduism, tolerate it, though they don't approve of it.  What I did say was that none of these cultures or religions approved of gay marriages.  Many of them were fine with gay relations, some even encouraged it for various reasons, such as practicing for when they get married.  I've also heard that some of the pre-Islamic Arabs would use it as a form of mental relaxing when the men would go out on hunting or training expeditions, but I haven't seen any official sources on the subject, so I don't know if that's true or not.

You are aware, of course, of the irony that if it weren't for gay liberationists, such as the drag queens who rioted against gaybashing and harrassment by police at Stonewall, we wouldn't have a culture embracing your own crossplay, right?

I don't see it as being ironic, especially since crossdressing was already somewhat acceptable in mainstream America.  Ten years prior, "Some Like It Hot" came out.  Bob Hope would wear dresses on several occassions during his show in the 50's.  I think "our culture" would still be okay with otaku crossplay, probably about as much as it does now (which I wouldn't call an embracing).

I don't think the government should have anything to do with the word "marriage."  Everyone should have equal rights under the law, call it whatever you want, but don't call it marriage.  If you want to self-identify as "married" then go for it.  But given the controversy surrounding the word and the fact that it does seem to have very strong religious connections, I don't think it's worth the trouble.

Would you rather have equal rights or a word?  "Gay marriage" is a hard term for many people to accept.  I know, I know, everyone should be accepting and so on .. but that's an ideal world.

To those opposing gay marriage, I would like to point this out:

Section 1 of the 14th amendment to the US Constitution states that:

"All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws."

I cannot find written proof on the internet that says this other than what my political issues teacher has shown us in class but denying gay marriage violates this amendment BECAUSE marriage is a protected RIGHT under the liberty portion of section one, there is also a right of EQUAL protection. Denying homosexuals the right to marry violates this as well.
REGARDLESS of your RELIGIOUS views OR otherwise, allowing laws like Oregon's Measure 36 and California's Proposition 8 are CLEARLY UNCONSTITUTIONAL as stated in Amendment 14 of the US Constitution.

I apologize if this offends anyone, it was not my intention, but I feel very strongly on this subject.

Also: Calling it anything other than what it is, MARRIAGE, makes it something different. We cannot claim to be country that is for equality and the people if we allow majority factions to smother the rights of others and treat people differently.

Just watch tv. There's straight 'love' plastered all over it. And I am in no way a yaoi or yuri fangirl, I must say. I don't know if you were aiming that at me or someone in this thread or in general, but I'm simply an avid fighter against any sort of discrimination.


You know what grinds my gears? The fact that we are all people on the earth, and everyone forgets that. Who are we to judge others? Who are we to tell them who to be with, to marry, or to love?

That was not directed at anyone specific, but the world in general. If we just accepted each other, a lot of the hate would stop.

Well, my point is that if marriage truly is a religious institution, as so many claim, then the government has no job recognizing marriage and there needs to be a different term for the union of two people.  I think it would be ridiculous to have "marriage" for straight couples and "civil unions" for gay couples.

Gay couples are going to have to fight a battle regardless.  Why make it even more difficult by focusing on a word that stirs up so much strong emotion?

As I said, marriage is defined as a constitutional right, not a religious one. Like I said, I cannot find the exact document we were shown in class where it is defined as such, but this document states that people are given certain rights under liberty.
These rights include marriage, reproduction, and child-rearing among others.

I'd be curious to know how they defined "marriage" (i.e., strictly between a man and a woman or otherwise) in that case then.

I don't think it was specifically stated like that at all. I think the rights were just listed but I'd have to look at it again.

Just watch tv.

I meant when we're at cons or on these forums.  YAOI is heard so much that I'm starting to think that it's an English word, not a Japanese acronym.  Yuri is also popular, but nowhere near as much (at least it looks that way to me).  Why aren't there more people declaring their love for straight stuff?  I just don't get it.

Well, my point is that if marriage truly is a religious institution, as so many claim, then the government has no job recognizing marriage and there needs to be a different term for the union of two people.

Again, everyone should have to get a civil union, for legal matters.  Marriages can preserved their religious ties.

You know what grinds my gears atm? Not being able to afford a bike to have gears to grind. But! I just got my childhood roller skates out of storage!

Oh and another gear-grinder: Speckles of mold on white leather roller-skates. Anyone knowing how to fix such, please PM me!

Oh and not being able to afford to be at today's meeting. But! Skipping it makes Orycon more accessible....

My kitty is declawed (wedidn't do it, he was a stray that showed up on our front porch and pretty much gradually moved in), that's not the problem. The problem is he's my baby and I feel terrible about his panic attack trying to hop out.

I just felt like such a horrible person 'cause he was shaking and trying to get out. :c

It's the little things that grind my gears. Out of butter, just as I am about to start cooking. New and unique places to put dishes and utensils, where I have no clue. Telling me you miss me, but never call so I don't wake you up.

Remembering just as I'm about to leave for work, that the car really needs gas, but there isn't time to get some now. I just set my dog gone glasses down, now where are they! Realizing at step seven, that I forgot to do step three, and have to go back and redo it all.

Finding myself walking into no-win arguments, but was dumb enough to open my mouth anyway.
Have Fun

It grinds my gears when I get preached to at work, or really anywhere. I can understand you're trying to save me, but please.... don't.  Not all who wander are lost; and if I am then this con and forms are awesome to get lost in. ;D

Jack Chick of Chick Tracts fame is enough to grind my gears, but turnabout is fair play... let's start printing Haruhi Tracts that you can hand out to them. (^_~)
This is my serious voice. Otherwise, I'm just another anime fan, not a moderator.

I prolly hold my chopsticks wrong.  Not on purpose, just that I've never tried to learn the "proper" way.  Plus I'm leftie, so I do things weird anyways. D:

Oh I mean drumsticks, not chopsticks. I don't really care if people don't hold their chopsticks right. I don't think there is a right way xD But drumming on the other hand...

Ambiguity grinds my gears, especially if it's regarding whether a person is safe or well-intended or not. That can be unnerving.

No.  He means Morris Code.  He's this dude.  Totally wacky and zany.  He drives around all hours of the day in a police car, doing single siren blasts and the such.
