    Where have you travelled?

    I have been to: All around the east coast of Australia. New Zealand(Auckland) Fiji Thailand (Bangkok, Phuket) Japan (Osaka, Kyoto, Kobe) UK (London, St. Ives, Cardiff, Bath, Weymouth, Leeds, Glasgow, Edinburgh) France (Paris, Nice, Lyon, Chamonix, Meribel, Marseilles) Belgium (Brussels) Germany (Berlin, Hamburg, Munich) Italy (Pescara, Sicily, Rome, Florence, Venice) Spain (Barcelona, Seville, Granada, Cordoba, Cadiz) US (NYC, LA, Washington D.C., Orlando, Aspen) If was to recommend one place it would be Sicily. It is stunning. I really want to go back to Sicily to go all the places I didn't go like Syracuse, Trapani and Taormina. Also I really want to go skiing in Japan in Hokkaido. I want to go to Eastern Europe and Northern Europe as well.

    Commonly Misspelled Words

    Are you saying that 'color' is right, because this is one where it depends where you are from. Every English speaking country bar America(maybe Canada too) spells it: colour.

    French Healthcare system

    First off, you have no basis on which to declare healthcare a right. Consider that humans lived without healthcare as we have it for millenia, and that new technology and industrialization is what allows us the privilege of new ways to extend the lengths of our lives. People get sick and die, it's been like that and it always will be like that. We simply don't have enough resources to give the best healthcare to everyone on the planet, but if we spread those resources equally (Ie. Too thin) they won't be of much use at all. So you may say my argument is being "black and white" but what you're not considering is that it takes industrial power to even start a healthcare system, and that in order to function properly, any given system can only treat so many people. If we need to deny some people proper treatment, should it not be those who have done nothing to support the system itself? Bit of a straw man there, but I'm not going to make a claim one way or another. I'm simply going to say that if you want to see a world that can give everyone a high standard of living, it would be much more possible with alot less people. What you make of it is your choice. While I agree that nobody should be denied a heart transplant, you still have yet to tackle the issue of where there are simply not enough for everyone who wants one, and where some people can pay and others can't. You say that Aboo has no basis on which to call healthcare a human right. Well firstly, it is actually one of the goals of the UNDP: to provide adequate health care to all. Also as someone said denying someone healthcare is tantamount to denying someone life in some situations. And you say this should be done because someone has more money. They deserve a longer life because they have more money. That is ludicrous. Also your reason that healthcare wasn't available to everyone in the past is like say women weren't allowed a vote in the past. More funding can ease infrastructural burden, because then people will be able to live a longer more productive life and be able to give more back.
  4. If you want to have a look at some psychological works that look into this read Charles Horton Cooley, he came up with the idea of the looking-glass self and look at William James. "No man is an island"
  5. On the spandex thing, some people wear it to prevent chafing. With the snot thing perhaps it is because when you cry your defenses are enacted. Tears have amylases which help to prevent inflections. And snot is for the purpose of protection against infection. On the heart question of a while back there are some doctors that have found (questionable) evidence that some emotional memories are stored in the tangle of neurons at the top of the heart. @abbeylizard Bologna is a city in the north of Italy.

    IB to ATAR (previously UAI) in Australia

    Ashlee, the Victorian conversion is in my opinion very generous. I know that if I did VCE I would have ended up with a 98 or less, but never the 99.45 I ended up with.

    Gender Roles

    First of all paternity leave does exist. Also I think that balloon's view of feminism is a bit out of date. The third wave feminism of these days is less about women and more about gender in general. It recognises that both men and women feel repressed by their places in society. Many men would much prefer adopting a more traditionally feminine role and vice versa. It recognises that gender isn't made up of two mutually exclusive camp but a more fluid expanse of gender identity with unfixed boundaries. All of this enables a variety of healthy relationships that may not make sense to those not involved, but is much more successful for those involved. I think that chivalry is more of a personality characteristic that a gender assigned one. This longing for chivalry is the result of gender ascribed hegemonic social norm which is only a characteristic available to some. I think while sex is a undeniable constant, gender is an identity influence by far more that what is between your legs. As such roles in relationship can't be the same for everyone, in fact it is unwise.

    How tall are you?

    That's about 5'6" I'm about 6'3" (188 cm) That's quite Puny, here in Calgary... Oh, and here's a tip to grow real quick. (I scienifically proved it true in a month-long experiment) Calcium, Protein, and Omega Fatty Acids. They are proven to make skeletal, muscular, and nervous/greymatter tissue grow. Drink lots of milk. Eat plenty of fish and low-fat poultry (or if you're a vegetarian (or trying, like me), eat Becel margarine toast, and Grade A eggs with a glass of Omega enriched Orange Juice) Combine this with good exercise and you will see the results (I did an hour of Tennis every day) I grew a full 5/4 of an inch in ONE MONTH. (Not kidding) I even put on some muscle (although I am still kinda fat... ) I did this pretty much my whole life and I am short for a guy 175cm the last time I measured, hehe.
