I've lived for over 2000 years, and not all of them were good ones. I've made many mistakes. And it's about time I did something about that.

Q.

I read the reports about that on the BBC website yesterday, but couldn't bring myself to post it on here.

Give me and a baseball bat five minutes alone with him.

As much as he disturbs me and he really really does what the hell is the story with the two women charged alongside him. :evil:

I know. Makes you want to throw up. And the comment by one that her daughter "needed to learn that her parents hate her" was just vile.

I hope their respective lives are made a living hell in prison.

There are really no adjectives and nouns to describe this. The English language is lacking. Yet another depth of depravity plumbed by these...I hesitate to call them people any more.

Here's a headline that...well, I'm not sure what to make of it.

http://www.skynews.com.au/world/article.aspx?id=928787

Euthanasia for terminally ill children? :|

I don't know how I feel about that.

I'm all for it, in the case of adults, and possibly teenagers, but how do you explain it to a four year old with terminal illness?

I'm with Bouncy on this one but I expect the scaremongering element of the anti assisted death group will be all over this one and saying that this is what the pro lobby will lead to.

I'm not sure what to make of it. :D Somehow I'm all for ridicule, but there's this tiny part of me thinking "Maybe he's on to something."

I've got nothing against the Daily Mail - I just think the whole thing should be printed in crayon to give readers a fair expectation of the content. They do science in much the same way that Dallas did Debbie.

I don't remember Dallas' Debbie. And I only watched some episodes when I was actually to young to and wasn't really interested, but we only had three channels and I was sick home.

Anyway, if you follow the link to the actual publication, you'll see that it is an interesting read. I'm still not sure (haven't read all of it) if it is a well executed joke or if the author really believes his hypothesis might be true.
However - the author does not claim to be right, he states that he could be and has some rather convincing points. Of course, it could all be bogus points - I didn't check them all. Some are valid, though. I wonder what Darwin would've called his work if it was true and he had known.
