Beau Albrecht My father was a high-ranking student radical poobah and still thinks Castro was the bees’ knees. Although I’m technically a red diaper baby, I’ve rejected all that baloney. I write off-the-wall fiction , and Righteous Seduction concerns next-generation game. My blog concerns “deplorable” politics, game, and my writing projects. Two years ago, Prince Prospero wrote about the wreckage of his homeland. Worse, hordes of unassimilable migrants caused a horrific crime wave. The image I hope to paint is not that of a changing, or even failing state, but that of an already dead society.

Humans are dependent on parental help for a large portion of their lifespans compared to other mammals. Love has therefore been seen as a mechanism to promote parental support of children for this extended time period. Furthermore, researchers as early as Charles Darwin himself identified unique features of human love compared to other mammals and credit love as a major factor for creating social support systems that enabled the development and expansion of the human species.
This would favor monogamous relationships over polygamy. Certainly love is influenced by hormones such as oxytocin , neurotrophins such as NGF , and pheromones , and how people think and behave in love is influenced by their conceptions of love. The conventional view in biology is that there are two major drives in love:
From “hew-mon” standards, Quark is an appalling boss, but from Ferengi standards, he’s quite benevolent.
If the group being referred to has clearly-defined or generally-accepted membership standards that exclude the counter-example. For example its not fallacious to say that “no responsible gun owner would do that, ” because someone violating gun safety rules is by definition acting irresponsibly. If the action axiomatically referring to a base reasoning principle s or logically disqualifies one from inclusion in the group.
For example, “No right-handed person predominantly uses their left hand” is not fallacious because right-handed people are defined as those who predominantly use their right hand. Someone who is calling themselves “right-handed” but predominantly uses their left hand either is lying or doesn’t understand the distinction between “right-handed” and “left-handed” people.

Sports was the defining mainstream hobby, and kids who couldn’t do them filtered out to clubs with less physical activities, so those clubs got a reputation for having people who couldn’t hack it with the top dogs.
Nowadays, there are a million formerly weird and isolated hobbies that are mainstream enough you can take lessons for them or buy guided tours or watch TV shows dedicated to them. Skydiving, bodysurfing, pole dancing, belly dancing, geocaching, tabletop RPGs, photoshopping, drawing webcomics, criticizing webcomics, building fighting robots — you name it.

The Halkans in the Star Trek Novel Verse are total pacifists, who insist that there is no violence of any kind in their hearts.
Which has a lot of people being electrocuted, burnt with flame breath, caught in explosions, subject to physical violence for awkwardly hitting on older women Brock, mainly Which makes it really weird in comparison to the other seasons. Pocket Monsters has a lot of this. In one infamous scene, Charmander attempts to grab Red’s Master Ball, but ends up grabbing one of his testicles.
And almost all of it would be a lot harder to stomach if not for the fact that the majority of them are selfish and petty jerks who, more often than not, have it coming.
