Rum, beer, women, movies, nice websites, gaming, etc., without interrupting the flow of martial threads.

A very good and timely message, Steve, and one that certainly applies to discussions at RSF. Thanks for posting the clip.

An excellent video, unfortunately those with the 'gift of the gab' only use it to con people, raising awareness of the use of language is certainly a good thing.

Politics and religious groups always use catch-words, generalizations, short messages that people believe because they sound good and are easy to understand, but has very little or no truth to them.

Sadly, I don't believe that you can make people more aware of this than they already are. People are by nature lazy and don't want to think more than they need to. And people usually don't want to take responsibility for their own thoughts or actions, because it's easier to blame everything on someone or something else. ::) :P
