I'm 19 and moved from Alaska to Tallahassee, Florida (literally opposite ends of the country) for college and have no intentions of going back to AK, except to visit my family. I'm living in a dorm but will have an apartment by summer. Another girl from my high school saved up a couple thousand, moved to Tampa and got a job. She's doing pretty well for herself. It's perfectly possible.

I think I agree with evolution (and yes it is stated in my religious text) but I don't think I believe the link between humans and apes/monkeys. like it's very plausible that we have changed over time, but it just doesn't make sense to me I guess that we directly evolved from monkeys...
But from what I understand most religions tell you to seek knowledge and to accept scientific fact, because it is fact... (as far as I know in my religion science is incredibly important)

Humans did not evolve from monkeys. Humans are more closely related to modern apes than to monkeys, but we didn't evolve from apes, either. Humans share a common ancestor with modern African apes, like gorillas and chimpanzees. This common ancestor existed 5 to 8 million years ago. The species then diverged into two separate lineages. One of these lineages ultimately evolved into gorillas, chimps, and other primates, and the other evolved into early human ancestors called hominids. Since the earliest hominid species diverged from the ancestor we share with modern African apes, there have been at least a dozen different species of these humanlike creatures. Many of these hominid species are close relatives, but not human ancestors. These different species branched off and evolved differently according to the conditions around them. We either adapt or become extinct, and most went extinct without giving rise to other species.

It is a book but you shouldn't be belittling it. It is called faith for a reason.

Exactly. It's called faith because it's not fact, and thus should not be treated as such. Therefore, it makes no sense to try to prove the existence of a being when the actuality of the reason someone may believe in him is faith and not fact.

I agree. And besides there's no such thing as absolute attractiveness. No one person in this world is going to be considered attractive to absolutely everyone. Everyone has their preferences. Someone you might find extremely attractive might be considered unattractive to someone else. I think people forget that when they say someone is ugly/unattractive, and what they are really saying is that that person is unattractive to them in their opinion. There are plenty of people who a lot of people seem to find attractive that I just don't agree with for some reason, like Ryan Gosling and Marylin Monroe. So if someone "unattractive" thinks they are attractive chances are there's someone out there who thinks they're completely in the right to think so

Black and African American aren't necessarily the same thing. If you address an African person living in America as black more often than not they get really offended. Black Americans generally have different morals and views than Africans, Jamaicans, etc. and there's actually YouTube videos of people talking about why they don't want to be referred to as black if they're Jamaican or African and vice versa. It's really interesting. I'd rather be referred to as black because even though my acestry is most likely from Africa I have literally no connections to those roots. Every value, moral, and tradition I have in my household is completely of American culture. The way I see it, "black" people are the ones who are descendants of slaves in this country and African Americans are people who lived in Africa and migrated to this country not as slaves. You could be of European decent and be considered African if you were born there, and maybe your parents were born there and so on and then move to America and be technically African American. Black is the more politically correct term, IMO.

Before I graduated this year, I met and started to have a crush on this guy at school who I could have sworn graduated the year before me. Turns out he was a freshman, but he looked SO MUCH OLDER. It was ridiculous and I died a little inside :/

Hahaha, oh, the irony. "Yolo" isn't annoying because Drake made it popular. It's annoying because stupid people overuse it. I find it funny that you hate Drake for being such a big influence on youth yet you want to be a rapper and, IF you were to get famous, would also be a big influence on youth. You might as well skip a step and hate yourself 'cause I'm sure IF you got famous plenty of people would feel the same way about you that you do about Drake

The burden of proof is on the person making the claim. Can you post an example of a movie commercial/advertisement that's lied?

In response to “The burden of proof is on the person making...

A movie commercial: no, because people only post the original movie trailers on the Internet, not ones that claim said movie is the #1 movie in America. Other advertisements: yes. Example: how toothpaste companies claim "4 out of 5 dentists recommend (insert toothpaste brand here)". That's obviously just a false advertising technique. From a statistical standpoint, 5 surveyed dentists is definitely not a big enough sample to form any statistical proof. Also, if 4 out of 5 dentists recommend Colgate and 4 out of 5 dentists recommend crest, both claims get discredited because they are conflicting "facts".
Another example: ever notice how alcohol advertisements always make it seem like the guy drinking the beverge is the man. What they're trying to communicate to viewers is "hey, you'll be the life of the party, you'll be the big shot, and you'll get all the fine women IF you drink our alcohol. Is that ever really the case? Nope. Another false advertising technique. Anyone who believes the media doesn't lie to us in order to get their product to sell is naive.

It's possible you see something like "#1 *family* movie" in America when the movie isn't actually #1, but they would never just outright lie.

No, they legitimately just say "the #1 movie in America". And yes they would just outright lie. The media always lies or over-exaggerates the truth. That's how they get people to buy stuff. If they were honest and said "hey guys, this movie sucked ****... But you should go see it anyway because that'd be great for sales purposes!" do you think people who go see it? No, they wouldn't

The #1 movie tends to change every 1-2 weeks. I'm not sure why this confuses so many people.

I'm not confused. I'm talking about when two (or more) movies that come out on the same day are both claimed to be the number one movie at the same time about a week after their release. They obviously cannot both be the number one movie

The pro-choice/pro-life argument focuses on whether or not women have the right to decide if they want a fetus growing in them, not whether or not women are actually going to go through with the abortion. It's an option, and of course it should not be the first option when it comes to birth control but it's about the security of knowing that if you do end up pregnant and don't want a kid you have that safety net. What we should really be focussing on is improving **** education because people who are educated will take better precautions and make better decisions before it comes time that they get pregnant and even have to consider getting an abortion. The way I see it is who are you(pro-lifers) to regulate what I can and cannot do with my body that has NO affect on you at all? That's like saying "yeah, I don't like doughnuts so no one else can eat doughnuts either." No adult has the right to make that decision for another adult. At a personal stand-point, I'm totally pro-life, I would never get an abortion, but at a national stand-point I'm pro-choice because what you do with your body has nothing to do with me, nor is it a harm to society

Legitimate mad-lib I did with a friend:

"2011 is my *yellow* year for romance," I told myself. "I'm making a resolution to *hump* someone! It's time to start dating again." So in less than an *hour* I met a *short* person. Our first date was at *The Bush Company* (a strip club where I live). My date pulled up *fast* in a *Benz* looking good enough to **. We had a blast, and afterwards we *squirted* for *seven* hours. I'm so *gay*! I'd spill more *small* details, but I don't *squirt* and tell.

I know. That's why I said "mostly" because light eyes are more common on lighter skinned people than darker skinned people. I'm not saying that it's impossible, only that it's more common.

However, I absolutely love the idea of Lenny Kravitz as Cinna (I haven't seen the movie yet, so I can't really judge) simply because he's Lenny Kravitz and fits the character perfectly.
