What are the best moments that you have ever experienced?

Bonding with the members of my church choir while on our choir tour, and the subsequent rekindling of my faith and rediscovery of God, is probably the greatest thing I've ever experienced to date. It will take a lot to top it, let me tell you.

Just make sure they don't cut the rope.

Good balanced answer. I have always thought it to be kind of strange that teens want to all be individuals and unique, but then when you LOOK at them, they have the same clothes, styles, hair, etc. Nothing unique about that. I like the way you put it in your comment. Thanks for sharing.

Gotcha. Do you think peer pressure plays as big a role as anything in determining what young people wear?

Depends on the age, in my opinion. I'm sure many would agree that as we reach high school years, those who have developed a strong sense of self will start wearing what they want to wear and not what the general population tells them to wear. However, in middle school, where we are still trying to fit in and build mature (ha) relationships, people tend to lose sight of who they are and sacrifice their individuality to be part of a group. I never did that, but my brother unfortunately seems to be falling victim to it. As long as he is buying all of the popular clothes because he wants to and not because everyone else is doing it, it is no skin off my nose what he wears.

I guess you mean subjective in the sense that it is entirely each and everyone's preference or taste? Basically, I was implying in overrated the whole image and hype that goes with a name brand anything.

Yeah, I wasn't trying to criticize or anything. You're right. Each person's preferences and needs determine the value of a product, which in turn leads to it being "overrated" or not.

Overrated is a subjective term but overpriced is accurate, as you are not paying for the shirt, you're paying for the logo.

I disagree with this in some cases. I think a debate was started on this site a while back about whether or not people who don't give blood or donate organs deserve other people's organs should they ever be in a life-threatening situation.

It's ridiculous how ignorant some people can be about homosexuality, <strong>amirite?</strong>

Of course. He is not a bad person at all; I simply wanted to share the article with y'all and see if you feel the same. I am just shocked though that he doesn't understand that guys "don't want to mess with other guys", they are attracted to them. It's the basis of homosexuality, and I personally believe it's not a choice. I've given up on the news not reporting stuff like this. It seems like half of the news on websites and channels are gossipy stories.

The fact is that the news reports an agenda. If it doesn't line up with their views, you won't see it on the air. It's unfortunate.

You guys don't think that American history classes are biased and structured in a certain way to make us look better? If you would like examples, I will gladly give them to you.

have you ever thought about the fact that history education does not have anything to do with 'making your country look better'? it is rather a conservation of facts to educate a nation and learn from the past. any good history teacher will stick to the facts and be neutral.

Unfortunately there is scarcely a history book out there that isn't biased.

We're Bangladeshi. My mom's from Mymensingh but studied in Dhaka and my dad's from Tangail but also studied in Dhaka. I consider myself Bengali American though because I was born and live here.

This probably still isn't my final answer, but I rechose the 80s today after watching The Breakfast Club. And that's really cool!

The 60s sound interesting to visit for maybe a brief period of time, but then I remember the racism and other political turmoil that happened in that decade. Anything before that I would probably hate immensely because of the social restrictions and overall intolerance of people at the time. The 70s and 80s had great music and it's when my parents grew up, so I'd like to go back to around that time and see what life was like back then, even though they didn't live in the U.S.
I think I chose kind of superficially as well. For all I know, I could end up hating it. I think we take for granted a lot of the modern conveniences we have today.

I totally agree. What went through my mind when I chose the 20s or 50s was the prosperity and (for the most part) peacetime. You wouldn't have to worry about wars or recessions/depressions. I think the 50s for me falls under the category of would visit. Thinking about it now, the 80s would probably be more living material.

Where did your parents live, if I may ask?

That's interesting. I actually feel the opposite. I'd rather live in a period of radical change and new ideas than a decade full of communist accusations and sexual repression. Plus there was that whole Cold War thing, so . . .

But to each his own.

I mean, there are aspects of the 60s that I like, but as a whole I don't think I would enjoy the 60s. In retrospect I chose very superficially. The 70s and 80s are also a possibility.

I think it's now evident that I don't actually know. (wary)

Either 20s or 50s. I don't think I could deal with the counter-culture movement.
