Fire4luvI: hi.
DrSpatch
: Hello. You beat me to it.
Fire4luvI: i did.
Fire4luvI
: we can say you imed me, if youd rather.
DrSpatch
: It's up to you.
DrSpatch: You may keep credit for your lightning reflexes.
DrSpatch: ^_^
Fire4luvI: alright, then.
DrSpatch
: I had something that I was going to say, but I forgot it.
DrSpatch: It was witty, I think...but forgetting it negates all wittyness.
Fire4luvI: me too.
Fire4luvI
: i lost my wittiness in the philippines. it pisses me off.
Fire4luvI
: and alot of my vocabulary.
DrSpatch
: The Philippines are a black hole for wittiness, from what I've heard....
Fire4luvI: they are.
Fire4luvI
: but losts of homosexuals.
Fire4luvI
: lots, even.
DrSpatch
: I was wondering.....
Fire4luvI: sorry. i cant type anymore...
DrSpatch
: It's okay. I couldn't to begin with.
Fire4luvI: yeah, well.
DrSpatch
: so you're from the Philippines?
Fire4luvI: no.
Fire4luvI
: my dad is. i spent the summer there.
DrSpatch
: ah. an enjoyable experience?
Fire4luvI: it was interesting.
Fire4luvI
: i liked it.
DrSpatch
: Any major differences from the US that struck you?
Fire4luvI: lack of homophobia...
Fire4luvI
: but it really doesnt matter.
DrSpatch
: That's good. Very good. Keeping the faith, as it were.
Fire4luvI: so, youre a jewish catholic.
DrSpatch
: Yep yep.
DrSpatch: Speaking of faith....^_^
Fire4luvI: that amuses me.
DrSpatch
: It is funny
DrSpatch: It's funny when they play off of each other
Fire4luvI: its too bad you dont keep judaism.
DrSpatch
: Yeah....
Fire4luvI: israel needs more sons and daughters.
DrSpatch
: ::laughs:: It sure does
DrSpatch: My brother is actually a judaic buddhist
Fire4luvI: thats acceptable.
Fire4luvI
: they work with each other alot.
DrSpatch
: yeah
DrSpatch: it's neat
Fire4luvI: its nice.
Fire4luvI
: judaism really seems right for me.
Fire4luvI
: reform, atleast.
Fire4luvI
: i dont believe in a god. but i like the rituals.
Fire4luvI
: and hebrew.
DrSpatch
: Rituals bring comfort.
DrSpatch: Especially those as old as Jewish ones.
Fire4luvI: yes.
DrSpatch
: A plus side to Catholicism.
DrSpatch: Do you think you'll convert?
Fire4luvI: to?
DrSpatch
: Judaism
Fire4luvI: im not sure.
Fire4luvI
: i havent been to temple in a long time.
Fire4luvI
: i want to.
Fire4luvI
: ill be minoring in hebrew, so maybe.
DrSpatch
: You'll at least have lots of contact with the culture, then
Fire4luvI: yeah.
Fire4luvI
: i love languages.
Fire4luvI
: but fuckin' hate cantonese.
Fire4luvI
: because its gross.
DrSpatch
: why is it gross?
DrSpatch: ::thinks of Mandarin, but knows that's wrong language::
Fire4luvI: 7 tones, seven consonant finials.
DrSpatch
: damn.
Fire4luvI: it makes me schputz.
Fire4luvI
: mandarin i like, though.
DrSpatch
: ::laughs::
DrSpatch: so how many do you speak?
Fire4luvI: fluently? only english. but im nearly fluent in french and working on japanese, tagalog and chinese.
DrSpatch
: where is tagalog from?
Fire4luvI: there were more, but i havent used them and thus forgot them.
Fire4luvI
: the philippines.
DrSpatch
: ah, that makes sense now
Fire4luvI: yes.
Fire4luvI
: you know what astounds me?
Fire4luvI
: african languages are mostly tonal!
Fire4luvI
: thats weird.
DrSpatch
: Yeah....like Ebo.
Fire4luvI: yes.
Fire4luvI
: i need to learn ipa...
Fire4luvI
: IPA.
Fire4luvI
: not ipa. its probably a language...
Fire4luvI
: catholicism amuses me, too.
DrSpatch
: I was going to say "it's a fun religion," but I don't think "fun" is quite the word...
Fire4luvI: no, it probably is.
Fire4luvI
: it is fun.
Fire4luvI
: i like rosaries.
DrSpatch
: They are nifty. Very comforting.
Fire4luvI: yeah.
DrSpatch
: you don't believe in god. do you believe in something else?
Fire4luvI: no.
Fire4luvI
: i believe in knowledge.
DrSpatch
: then you do.
Fire4luvI: and that abortion is fine and dandy. its not a good thing when done after the first semester, but when needed...
DrSpatch
: ::laughs:: you're like Charlie
Fire4luvI: first trimester, i mean...
DrSpatch
: he goes up to people at parties and asks "So what about abortion? The death penalty?"
Fire4luvI: but if it is endangering the mothers house, its all good.
Fire4luvI
: heh.
Fire4luvI
: i think the death penalty is a good thing--the way its carried out is savage, though.
Fire4luvI
: here.
DrSpatch
: yeah....
DrSpatch: here?
DrSpatch: oh. US.
DrSpatch: I don't know. I go back and forth.
Fire4luvI: were it antiseptic it would be good.
DrSpatch
: how would it be such?
Fire4luvI: like killing people without such press. and instantly.
Fire4luvI
: and for smaller crimes, even.
DrSpatch
: why for smaller crimes?
Fire4luvI: because the world is much too populated.
Fire4luvI
: overpopulation.
DrSpatch
: hmmm
DrSpatch: I dunno, though
DrSpatch: I kind of like people. and we're really only overpopulated in...well, for lack of a better phrase, densely populated areas
Fire4luvI: those who commit serious crimes arent productive. those not productive should be killed to relieve the burden.
DrSpatch
: if we shipped lots of Indians to America, things would be much more balanced
Fire4luvI: densely populated areas are the hospitable ones.
DrSpatch
: true. I've never seen a Bangledeshian with a shotgun....
Fire4luvI: what about an afghan with a machine gun?
DrSpatch
: well, probably
Fire4luvI: taliban is
DrSpatch
: there aren't too many Afghans in Ohio...cept for the Whigs, but they broke up
Fire4luvI: ah.
Fire4luvI
: the taliban is bad.
DrSpatch
: I agree.
DrSpatch: Poor Afghanistan
Fire4luvI: i know.
Fire4luvI
: poor women.
Fire4luvI
: poor all of them.
Fire4luvI
: but i do think that missionaries are a bad thing.
Fire4luvI
: humanitarian aid is fine.
DrSpatch
: yeah, I would agree
DrSpatch: conversion is icky
DrSpatch: people are people
DrSpatch: they need to do their own thing
Fire4luvI: humanitarian aid in exchange for having to believe in a religion is not.
Fire4luvI
: yes.
Fire4luvI
: im a socialist.
Fire4luvI
: but only because i think that the world should be efficient.
DrSpatch
: hmm. marxist?
Fire4luvI: most of my ideas arent left at all.
Fire4luvI
: yes.
Fire4luvI
: ive become lazy with it, though.
Fire4luvI
: over the summer. ive had nothing to keep it up.
DrSpatch
: I can tell (about the right sidedness)
DrSpatch: <-- flaming liberal ^_^
DrSpatch: I'm not sure. About socialism. Though capitalism is killing us all.....
Fire4luvI: im still very very liberal, though.
DrSpatch
: that's good
Fire4luvI: i think that business is evil and that the government should be strong.
Fire4luvI
: powerful.
DrSpatch
: they're aren't many gays that are conservative, I think
DrSpatch: powerful, eh?
DrSpatch: cause people are evil?
DrSpatch: and need guidance?
Fire4luvI: im NOT conservative.
DrSpatch
: ::laughs::
Fire4luvI: no. powerful in an able-to-provide-the-basics-for-the-popula tion way.
Fire4luvI
: not 1984.
DrSpatch
: ah, then you're liberal
DrSpatch: babies should eat!
DrSpatch: and whatnot
Fire4luvI: babies should eat. and health care should be free for all.
DrSpatch
: yes, I really think that we should socialize health care
DrSpatch: it's so much less expensive
Fire4luvI: yeah.
Fire4luvI
: equal rights for ALL.
DrSpatch
: yes. equality very important.
Fire4luvI: yes, yes, yes.
Fire4luvI
: socialization hasnt happened like it should.
Fire4luvI
: i dont know how it should, though.
Fire4luvI
: just that it would work were it done right.
DrSpatch
: I'm not sure if it would......
DrSpatch: human nature is tricky
DrSpatch: especially in america
Fire4luvI: yes.
DrSpatch
: we're so hyperindividualistic
Fire4luvI: im very antiamerican, too.
Fire4luvI
: i think china handles communism the best.
Fire4luvI
: not well, but the best.
DrSpatch
: China is going to explode in a few years
DrSpatch: in a good way
DrSpatch: they're transitioning well
Fire4luvI: i agree.
Fire4luvI
: its already a major market.
DrSpatch
: it'll prolly supercede us
Fire4luvI: it will.
Fire4luvI
: were japan and china to go into an alliance it would be WONDERFUL.
DrSpatch
: yeah
DrSpatch: too bad the chinese are all bitter about the japanese....
Fire4luvI: i know.
Fire4luvI
: korea will get big, too.
Fire4luvI
: east asia REALLY would benefit.
Fire4luvI
: but not while china is socialist.
Fire4luvI
: they wouldnt go for it.
DrSpatch
: yeah, it wouldn't work.
Fire4luvI: yes.
Fire4luvI
: itd be nice, though.
Fire4luvI
: im sure that SOMETHING will happen.
DrSpatch
: It would be funny to see America freak out
Fire4luvI: i think the world already knows its past its prime.
Fire4luvI
: nb. the recession.
Fire4luvI
: nota bene.
DrSpatch
: nota bene?
Fire4luvI: the recession.
Fire4luvI
: note well.
DrSpatch
: yes yes
DrSpatch: Italian?
Fire4luvI: i think.
DrSpatch
: as do I
Fire4luvI: i think that asia is the future. as are japanese girls...
DrSpatch
: you join Clarissa in thinking such, I believe
Fire4luvI: heh...
Fire4luvI
: she hasnt told you why it is such?
DrSpatch
: no, she hasn't! please expound.
Fire4luvI: no.. i shouldnt.
DrSpatch
: why not?
Fire4luvI: ask her!
DrSpatch
: ahhh
DrSpatch: I see your logic now.
DrSpatch: My kung fu is too old. Now I must die.
Fire4luvI: shi de.
Fire4luvI
: latiDA.
Fire4luvI
: have you heard of any filipino bands?
DrSpatch
: no, do you have a recommendation?
Fire4luvI: eraserheads.
Fire4luvI
: and barbie's cradle.
Fire4luvI
: but theyre expensive to get in america.
DrSpatch
: and that's why I love the internet
Fire4luvI: telling.
Fire4luvI
: yes. download.
DrSpatch
: what song by eraserheads?
Fire4luvI: ang huling el bimbo, tamagotchi baby, pare ko and whatever else....

DrSpatch: that would be sexcellent
Fire4luvI: or atleast flavour his skin with it?
DrSpatch
: his lips.
DrSpatch: and his eyelids.
DrSpatch: that would be good.
Fire4luvI: not his libs.
Fire4luvI
: you can only take so much, you know?
DrSpatch
: okay then.
DrSpatch: this is true
DrSpatch: and lips would be frequently in use

DrSpatch
: for someone who loves languages....... ::laughs::
Fire4luvI: cases are pointless!
Fire4luvI
: prepositions!
DrSpatch
: why?
DrSpatch: ah, true.
Fire4luvI: finnish has, like, 25 cases!
Fire4luvI

: you know?
DrSpatch
: yeah, that's true
DrSpatch: that would be funny as hell
Fire4luvI: no declination, if thats what you meant, though.
DrSpatch
: everyone would walk around with no clue what everyone was else was talking about
Fire4luvI: nondeclined languages rely on word order.
DrSpatch
: that's right. I think I knew that....
Fire4luvI: like chinese.
DrSpatch
: yeah.
DrSpatch: what time does the sun rise there?
Fire4luvI: i dont know.
