In no way am I disrespecting anyone who lost their lives. I have deep respect and sympathy for them and their families. I'm just saying that relatively, it was a small, although extremely terrible and unfortunate, disaster.

it was NOT small. almost 3,000 people died. that is NOT small. other disasters have been bigger but that does not make this a small event! and you are being extremely disrespectful to the entire world that lost people in that event. don't bash this event, respect the people who lost their lives and leave it at that

Which is precisely why it's blown so out of proportion. Had it happened anywhere else, the attention it's getting would be significantly smaller.

are you kidding me? are you an absolute idiot? you are such an insensitive **** so many innocent people and heros lost their lives that day. the worlds reaction to japan and haiti were massive and amazing too. this wasnt a natural disaster though which is what makes it different. it was meant to destroy all of the western world by setting us all into disaray but it failed! the whole world, not just americans, came together and showed the terroists they cant push us around and the whole world is stronger because of it.

I wasn't speaking toward you with that comment about not knowing about football.

You just proved my point. Rugby players get hurt more. Football players wear the pads so that they can sustain long careers and minimize injuries. The reason the hits in football aren't as hard, if that's even true, is because there's no need to knock your opponent out. You just need to get them down and stop the play. Plus they're cracking down on hard hits for that reason: there's no need for hits that take the wind out of a guy.

i know i just thought id say my opinion not supporting either of you just saying the facts. they knock people out cuz they find it fun and thats like half the point of the game. football players just claim to be soooo much tougher than anyone else except theyre not and rugby is one example why

You sound like you don't know the first thing about American Football.

Football is just as much physical as it is strategy. Tackling is a tedious thing. Seems to me like you don't understand it. If you do, you put up the worst argument against it I've ever heard.

im american ive lived in america all my life i know all about american football. rugby players get hurt more but they suck it up and its been proven that hits in fugby games are as severe as getting hit by a car going 50 mph and football with pads was a car going 25

That I understand, but then that argument works for anything. Maybe the bible was faked. Nobody has ever met the authors or seen pictures of them. There's no proof they exist. I understand how faith works, because every belief you have is just having faith in what you've decided is true. I don't like when people are just raised religiously. It gives them no opportunity to think about their life and decide what they think is true. It takes away their free will. I find it borderline inhumane. You can't deprive people of thinking for themselves. That's what they do in dictatorships. "You follow the rules and don't talk about things I don't like or you're in trouble" is now way to think as a child.

i completely agree with you! i think you should let people choose their own religion or lack there of. but a lot of people think theyre doing the right thing by teaching their kids what they think is right

that could be faked or not actually them. You have no proof that they're actually real but you still believe theyre real which is like what all religous people think. for many religious people theyre raised that way and it would never cross most of their minds that its not true until theyre older and their minds are already made up

I really wasn't. My original purpose was just to be a little bit contrary, but then you thought I was serious, so I got upset and decided to support my comment anyway. Then I tried humor, but I guess you did not recognize it as humor. And now I think that you're actually somewhat angry with me, because I disagreed and commented why I disagreed, while also exaggerating my disagreement to be contrary and amuse myself. I also think that you actually do care at least a little bit or else you wouldn't have replied to my original comment.

the point of saying i liked my own comment was to be contrary? and someones a bit sensitive. seeing as this is text you cant really tell when someones being serious so next time try funny humor i think that might work a little better. and im not angry im enjoying this debate and obviously i care thats why i posted this. and you care too thanks why you responded. whats wrong with caring?

The road to Hell is paved with good intentions. I believe my accent is fine therefore, I NW this. If you told an English person that the way they pronounce words is wrong, don't you think they'd get a little miffed?
