• Welcome to The Cave of Dragonflies forums, where the smallest bugs live alongside the strongest dragons.

    Guests are not able to post messages or even read certain areas of the forums. Now, that's boring, don't you think? Registration, on the other hand, is simple, completely free of charge, and does not require you to give out any personal information at all. As soon as you register, you can take part in some of the happy fun things at the forums such as posting messages, voting in polls, sending private messages to people and being told that this is where we drink tea and eat cod.

    Of course I'm not forcing you to do anything if you don't want to, but seriously, what have you got to lose? Five seconds of your life?

    The "Fwee" Thread

    I was looking back on a thread I made on this forum in April of 2011, where I was wondering why I should live anymore. It just so happens that I met my current girlfriend in the August of 2011, so I think that's something. =)

    I predict that the Munna and Skitty are also Fairy types and that the Moon Stone is what makes Eevee evolve into Sylveon.

    Pokemon X/Y

    This is a pretty convincing latter-day Mewthree hoax. Still probably a hoax though. It would be completely unprecedented if it's not.

    I cried when she talked about her incomplete suicide attempt... It's so sad that more than 41% of transgender people in the United States have tried to kill themselves... (http://www.thetaskforce.org/downloads/reports/reports/ntds_summary.pdf)

    The "Fwee" Thread

    Mmm... I get anxious easier nowadays... like, injustices strike at my heart a lot worse than they did... I used to think that this was because I was getting more depressed. But then I realized, I'm not getting more depressed. I'm starting to care more. Because I have someone to love. ^_^

    2012 US Presidential Election

    No, not really. The value of life is absolute, and the basis for all other value. Executing a mass murderer accomplishes nothing that imprisoning them wouldn't do. And I see your point; if it causes them a lot of distress, then yes, it's not worth the relatively small impact their individual...

    2012 US Presidential Election

    Yeah, the proper term is the Affordable Care Act. It's both of their faults. And this isn't to establish blame, it's to convince those who do this to chose to make the decision that will benefit the most people.

    2012 US Presidential Election

    Non-action is an action. If you see a train barreling down a railroad track towards a doggy, and you chose to let it be run over, that was a choice you made, and is just as much of a choice as if you would've tried to call to it or move it out of the way. Philosophy is a rational analysis of...

    2012 US Presidential Election

    But what of the people harmed by the possible candidate that is elected in place of the one that would've been the most likely to be the least harmful? Non-action is still an action, ethically speaking. And if one comes to power who does more harm than another candidate, the people who didn't...

    2012 US Presidential Election

    You mean continuing the War in Afghanistan instead of just instantly leaving the Northern Alliance by itself? Or are you talking by that incident where a 16-year old, Abdulrahman al-Aulaqi, was (accidentally) killed by a drone, and other civilian causalities? Yes, civilian causalities are...

    2012 US Presidential Election

    I unapologetically support Obama in this election. I absolutely agree with him on his political positions within the context that he is in, and I'm mystified why people would support third party candidates over him, or why people don't like him as much as they did. Am I the only one whose...

    What is the biggest problem in today's world?

    @skepticism-about-convincing-people-to-accept-the-AI: If it were intelligent enough to singlehandidly fix the global economy, I'm sure getting people to go along with it would not be too hard. @questioning-its-benevolence: There's no real reason why it would be omnicidal. Worst case scenario...

    Like Neon Genesis Evangelion, Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal, and others, I heard about it from the copious entry pimping on TV Tropes MLP:FIM had accumulated for itself. I was plesantly surprised by the quality of the show, and now its my girlfriend's and I's favorite to watch together. <3

    What is the biggest problem in today's world?

    Resource scarcity and unequal distrubution thereof, which encourages a hostile, competitive evironment that produces most if not all forms of discrimination.

    Products of our Environments

    Well, this is why the justice system (should be?) is about protecting people from those predisposed to likely harm them (and trying to rehabilitate so they won't again), as opposed to exacting revenge upon "evil" people. It is also why the concept of sin is a bunch of tosh, though that's (so to...

    Kim Jong-il dies at 69

    I'm afraid the new leadership may be more aggressive than the last, and may see the U.S. withdraw as an opportunity to initiate an impromptu "reunification" and establish the authority of the new regime- of course, that is my pessimism talking, and it may turn out fine- but my grim prediction...
