  • Re: Kinsella v. Wenzel

    Is it me or has Wenzel been getting increasingly shrill and desperate in the last few days in regards to this subject? I don't know if it's just me reading it into his stuff, but visiting the EPJ has become almost trite at this point.

  • Re: Steubenville Case/Rape Culture

    When people talk of rape culture they are talking about the views of a culture in regards to rape, and it's various off shoots that can define rape culture which also includes sexism and patriarchy. Ridiculous feminist bullshit detected.

  • Re: Why Keep Clementine Moon Probe Photos Unreleased?

    Fumbling by nasa engineers caused the cameras on the probe to be useless and the vast majorities of images were not fit to print, and would be an embarassment to nasa if they were released?
