It is only annoying if I am forced to be with them against my will. If I can leave anytime it doesn't bother so much.

I know you're one of the older members, but I think this post applies well to people my age who are in school. I go to a science and technology university and a vast majority of people here are socially inept and extremely nerdy. Not that being "nerdy" is necessarily bad, but it's when you have a lack of variety of personailities that it gets sufficating.

The whole 'get back in the kitchen and make me a sandwich' jokes were funny but now they're a little old. The sad part is that although most people don't intend to sound sexist, some choose to overuse it and any little thing a woman says is given the ole, "whatever woman, get back in the kitchen. HARHARHARHAHAR."

I have nothing against offensive jokes or jokes that tease or ridicule somebody. It never killed anybody to be the center of a joke every now and then and if they can laugh about it, great. But when the joke is overused to the point that some people seem to begin to take it further than a harmless joke, that's when it needs to stop. For example: A woman says something and someone tells her to get back in the kitchen. That could be funny the first time or two but if that becomes their only reply to her to the point that they begin sounding serious about it, it needs to stop.

And then of course, it's just OLD. How about something new like 'folding clothes in the laundry room' or 'shoe shopping' or something?

Although I'm female, I find women jokes to be hilarious...usually. I don't take them personally or seriously. However, the old 'belongs in the kitchen' saying gets really old. It is rarely funny anymore.

I admit to being sensitive about sexist jokes that revolve around careers. Unlike my mom, I want to have a full-time job that I can be proud of. My biggest fear about going into the engineering work force as a female is that I won't be taken seriously; that my co-workers will be wondering who I slept with, or how good my sandwich making skills must be to get the job.

If you're going to dress in revealing clothing, don't get all out of shape when people look. If you want to be promiscuous, then go for it... when you're not in school. You're their to learn. In high school, I couldn't believe some of the things other girls would wear; I'd never be comfortable in them.

P.S. **** are meant to be stared at :)

I don't like my mid-January birthday. It's winter and not a lot to do. I'm still on break so my college friends aren't around, however it's towards the end of my break and my friends from home have already left.

It all depends on one's interpretation of the word '**'. I don't understand why people choose to sleep around, but that's their choice and who am I to judge? However, some people feel the need to broadcast their ** life to anyone with ears. News flash, no one (should) care what you do in the bedroom. If you keep it to yourself, then it never becomes my business.

What if those who do right pay taxes, and their taxes are spent cleaning up the messes of those who do wrong? Most people that drink, drink responsibly. And most people that drink responsibly don't buy drink using these offers. These offers are used, almost exclusively, by people who are drinking irresponsibly. I'm not suggesting placing a huge tax on alcohol, or pricing it so that the cost goes up everywhere. I'm suggesting putting a minimum price on alcohol, so that the shops that offer these really low-prices, can't.

We already pay tax money "to clean up the messes of those who do wrong": people living on welfare and foodstamps, greedy politicans, health treatment for druggies, living expenses for prisoners, ect. I don't get why we should single out drinking.

Again, I believe government should stay out of business affairs, which includes making minimum prices for goods and services. I'd rather see laws that tax businesses for finding cheap labor over seas but reaping the benefis of being in the United States.

However, I don't know the situation in Ireland so maybe you have a point.

A lot of the people who take advantage of offers such as this are teenagers. They have no self-control. Not only have they not learned their limits, they're purposefully drinking to get drunk.

That's their problem, not society's. They know the affects of alcohol and shouldn't drink it if they aren't responsible enough to handle it. We shouldn't handicap or punish those who do right because of those who do wrong.

I don't think making a minimum price on alcohol will decrease binge or underage drinking. People will just buy the cheapest beer whether they like it or not. It's the buzz and good time they are after, not quality taste.

I don't drink, but I don't think it's fair to make a minimum price. The alcohol industry is a business, and should be able to determine their own price.

Society needs to change its values, not create new laws to parent the irresponsible.

Agreed. It should socialize medicine similar to the way it does education. Free medicine to age 18, and state run hospitals that compete with private ones for adults.

I don't know why, but I've never thought about it that way. I completely agree. Adults can work for themselves and make money, therefore they should pay for their education and health. Children on the other hand, cannot and should be provided for. I would rather my tax dollars go towards a child in need than adults who refuse to help themselves.

With all the muggings, burglaries, car accidents, rape statistics, bombings, ect., how does one ever feel safe? You aren't safe in your home, and you aren't safe outside. It's a part of life you have to accept. There are more things out there that scare me than the possiblity of someone with a gun.

I'm not saying the second amendment should be revoked, I'm saying it should never have happened.

There wouldn't be an industry built around guns for children unless there was a demand for it.

I'd like if everyone could imagine a world where the second amendment never happened. A world where America's attitude to guns was the same as the attitude of Ireland say. There's still gun violence, using illegal fire-arms, but it really only happens in the ganglands. Guns are not an everyday part of life, and consequently, there's not as many children accidentally killing each other. There's still irresponsible parenting, but it never leads to a shooting.

Should never have happened? The constitution was written in the late 1700's. There's no way they could have predicted these types of outcomes. Back then, having a gun was very common. It's one of the many reasons that the revolutionists defeated the British, and it remains one of the reaons that America isn't harmed by by enemies today. No one wants to invade a country knowing that its civilians are armed.

I agree that there shouldn't be an industry that builds guns for children. However, this doesn't happen because guns exist, this happens because of Corporate America and a person's desire to make a quick buck despite ethical concerns.

It's our society that is messed up. Guns have been around for hundreds of years and it is only now becoming a serious problem. Media influence has huge negative influence. Americans are also feeling that they are invincible and entitled to whatever they want. Guns are not the cause or the problem. It's lack of common sense.

Except the short sleeves law is a recently new law that did not take into account the existing employees needs. It was push through by bureaucrats with no **** clue.

Nowhere does it say the compromise reached jeopardise patient health.

If some politico passed a law saying that you needed to have your **** circumcised (or have your foreskin sewn back on) that would be unfair.

Requiring people to be immodest or change their bodies in order to do their job is not fair, whether it is arms, **, ** or anuses.

I am more concerned about the medical professional working with bare hairy arms than those working with long sleeves. Give me long sleeves every time. I don't want to see your arm **** dangling over my open wound.

If the sleeves were a new law, I would like to know the reasoning behind it. To me it makes sence because loose sleeves can dangle and drag bacteria around with them. If that's the reason, then a fair compromis would be that they must wear some kind of spandex material that fits tight to the arms.

New laws are always put it and you can't make everyone happy. It's up to the UK's disgression and if you live there, it's just something you have to deal with.

However, I don't agree with your comparison to the body. Alterting the physicallity of the body where it can't be reversed isn't the same thing as a dress code.

Maybe you have a point that these specific incidents would not have happened, but you seem to be advocating that the second amendment should be revoked, which I am not okay with.

These incidents don't happen because of guns, they happen because of poor decision making on the parents part. Who gives a gun as a gift to a five year old? How did the four year old even get a hold on the gun? Why was the eight year old and five year old home alone? If you want a gun in the house and you have kids, then you need to be responsible.

Of course you can. You can get a job and pay rent at home, pay rent at your own place, move in with someone else rent free, or be a hobo. And they have every right to impose these rules on people who live in their house. But that doesn't make them any less ridiculous or living there any less sucky.

But like I said, if you don't like someone's rules in their own house, then nothing is keeping you there. I don't disagree that it sucks, but I also have no sympathy. So I choose not to agree or disagree.

My mistake, I had several articles up and got confused. However, I still stand by what I said. If the United Kingdom already has existing laws about their requirements on sanitation for doctors, then no one should come into their country and demand that rules be changed to suit their lifestyle. I will never believe that religion triumps health.

How are detachable sleeves any different than wearing sleeves? You might as well wear a long sleeve shirt and take it off when necessary. I'm all for accepting different beliefs, but where do people get off thinking they deserve special treatment and should have everyone accomodate to you?

Although I can never wrap my mind around overly protective parents, if you're an adult and don't like the rules, then you're free to leave at anytime. Don't reap the benefits of living there rent free, then turn around and whine about the 'unfairness of it all'.

As independent as I am, I only wish my university was in driving distance from my home so that I could continue living with my dad and not rack up so much debt.
