That person is a shitty friend.

But that is exactly the point of a self replicating meme and religion is the ultimate meme currently affecting human development.

Meme Definition - Memes, self reproducing mental information structures analogous to genes in biology, can be seen as the basis for an explanatory model of cultural and psychological behavior. Their properties and effects are evolutionary conditioned and ultimately seeks to promote their replication.

Examples of memes are tunes, ideas, catch-phrases, clothes fashions, ways of making pots or building arches.

http://www.aleph.se/Trans/Cultural/M...mecycle.html#1.

Put simply, the religions that don't have their members "force others to believe as they do" as you had stated, die out. Do you think that a religion that encourages others to experiment with other religions will last long? not a chance. Now a religion that delivers a death sentence for worshiping the wrong way? that will last.

http://www.persecution.org/2013/03/0...eath-sentence/

So you see, by definition a good meme(religion) must compel it's members to force it beliefs on others through conversion (like you experienced) or indoctrination (like their children receive from birth)

Three things will outlive humanity after the Apocalypse;

-Twinkies
-Cockroaches
-Pinoy's condescending voice echoing into the void.

For someone who appears determined to paint the UK as a terrifying totalitarian land of restricted firearms and socialised healthcare...you seem to be a huge fan of Richard Dawkins.

Or maybe you've just been playing Metal Gear Rising.

That's the point.

We could add Candy Corn to the list and make it 4 things.


Fuckin' hate Candy Corn.

I don't understand? Surely now they've stopped making them, the only ones left will either be eaten till they're all gone or a scant few remain as collector's pieces.

It was a joke about how Twinkies are so full of preservatives that they wouldn't rot.

Technically it's a moot point.

It's already been confirmed that Twinkies brand and production facilities have already been sold to other manufacturers.

Welp, not going to that barber again.

Your knee to their balls can be your way of trying to tell them something.

Fitting, given that it was testicular cancer.

He had a straight razor at my throat when he said it though, so that wasn't really an option.
