  • Overcoming Lust as a Buddhist

    A goal of Buddhism is to “renounce” or overcome lust. So much so, that the most fervent Buddhists live as celibate monks. Their hope is to eventually enter Nirvana, a state where they expect to “extinguish all desires”—not just lust. Buddhists are correct. Evil desires are to blame for our troubles.....
  • What Do Men Want? (To be admired by the women they love)

    It is said that the one question about men and women that even the great Sigmund Freud, father of psychoanalysis, could not answer was: What do women want? Whether or not Freud actually admitted his ignorance on this question is irrelevant. The very popularity of the anecdote testifies to one incontrovertible fact: A lot of men don’t know the answer. It is probably fair to say that a lot of women also don’t know the answer. If they did, all they would have to do is tell men. That would solve the riddle — and make most men and women...
  • The REAL List Of The Top 10 Things Americans Want But Can't Have

    01/18/2008 2:55:01 PM PST · by vaper69 · 5 replies · 182+ views
    There is a list that some nincumpoop made up that is circulating around the net that is alleging to list the supposed "top 10 things Americans want." It is, of course, 10 things that socialists and their liberal allies want ... not most Americans. The list has made itself popular with the Diggbots (which is enough to discredit the list), and is spreading like wildfire amongst the online liberal community. It appears that Geekarmy.com is the original author of the list. Frankly, I find that hard to believe, but they cite no other source. I just have a hard time...

    Police Say Man Stripped Naked At Hotel Officially, Douglas Craig Melvin resigned his post at the Federal Security Director for the Transportation Security Administration in Boise, ID for "personal reasons"... but his decision likely had something to do with an incident early last week at an Idaho Falls hotel. Boise television station KTVB-7 reports Melvin, 48, was arrested after he allegedly entered the swimming area at a Fairfield Inn on the night of February 19, removed his clothes and proceeded to walk naked around the pool -- in full view of hotel employees and guests. According to police reports, Melvin...

    Me | Today | Dan Pride
    I am curious why none of the media covers the most important aspect of the Malvo shootings. If you look at Newspapers on the dates when the shootings are underway you discover something I find quite interesting. The shootings begin to dominate the news the day before the debate on the Iraq war starts and they catch them the day after the declaration of war??? If you ask most people "do you remember the debate about starting the second Iraq war", they will all answer "yes of course". But if you followup with the question "name one point in the...

    I recently received a reply to a post that stated: "This should be beneath a "freeper". Sad." So I asked.. what is it that makes a FReeper? My reply (and I will admit was tasteless) was also questioning. It stirred controversy and was removed? Why Moderators? Can you not tell me? Did it not meet with your "FReeper" mentality? According to all posted guidelines it should be listed but no, you chose to delete it. Yes.. I'm the first one IBTZ, I'm sure you'll nick me for speaking up..
  • Study: Sexual Desire is in Your Genes

    05/29/2006 11:53:37 AM PDT · by anymouse · 33 replies · 852+ views
    Your sexual desire or lack thereof could be in your genes, scientists announced today. The discovery might change how psychologists view sexuality. The researchers found that individual differences in human sexual desire can be attributed to genetic variations. The study is the first to provide data to show that common variations in the sequence of DNA impact on sexual desire, arousal and function, the researchers said. The scientists, at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, examined the DNA of 148 healthy male and female university students and compared the results with questionnaires asking for the students' self-descriptions of their sexual desire,...

    Israel Gives Palestinians Until Year's End to Show Desire for Peace Wednesday, May 10, 2006 JERUSALEM — Israel will give the Palestinians until the end of the year to prove they are willing to negotiate a final peace deal, and will unilaterally set its final borders with them by 2008 if they don't, a close associate of Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's said Tuesday. Justice Minister Haim Ramon was the first Israeli official to set a deadline for the Palestinians' new militant Hamas rulers to disarm and recognize the Jewish state. The Palestinians' moderate president, Mahmoud Abbas, of the rival Fatah...

    I'VE had it with the bumper-sticker slogans that pop up in the debate over illegal immigration. You hear them all the time on ratings-driven television shows such as CNN's "Lou Dobbs Tonight" and you see them on signs waved in protests at the U.S.-Mexican border. One of my favorites is: "Deport all illegals." See, thanks to Americans' insatiable appetite for readily available cheap labor, there are now about 10 million illegal immigrants in this country. And we're supposed to deport them all one by one? How many buses are we talking about? Simplistic solutions don't add a lot to the...
  • Communism and human nature (Bolshie Mod sez, Arise ye kittens of the earth!)

    04/05/2005 10:50:57 AM PDT · by Sammy sam · 153 replies · 8,234+ views
    Many argue that communism will never be possible because of "human nature". The essence of this false argument is the belief that a communist society would consist of an all-powerful central government that would tell everybody what to do--and would therefore undermine the creative initiative of individuals and the search for happiness. • This argument is based on two false assumptions: (1) It assumes that a communist society will look like the former Soviet Union, or the current China, North Korea, etc (ie: corrupt police states with a feudal-style ruling class) (2) It assumes that people will only work in...

    In April 2004, followers of Iraqi Shi‘ite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr launched a well-coordinated uprising across southern Iraq. While Western media focused on events in Sadr City, Najaf, and Karbala, violence occurred elsewhere as well. A Coalition Provisional Authority (CPA) source forwarded the following after-action report regarding violence in the town of Al-Kut, the capital of the Wassit governorate and home to the Ukrainian contingent.The unclassified report, written by a coalition security contractor, highlights dysfunction between regional coalition offices and the Coalition Provisional Authority headquarters in Baghdad, as well as tension between diplomats and security officers. The summary faulted a British...

    NEW ORLEANS - For the first time in almost half a century, the city that inspired "A Streetcar Named Desire" once again desires streetcars. New Orleans, home of the oldest continuously operating streetcar line in the world, had done away with everything but the St. Charles line through the historic Garden District. Now that's changing. A third streetcar line just reopened and perhaps a dozen others — including the old Desire Street line — are on the planning board. In New Orleans streetcars have been part of our tradition," said Pat Judge, spokesman for the Regional Transit Authority. "Tourists like...

    Viagra doesn't work for most women A new approach might be on the verge of producing an effective sex drug for women. Unlike Viagra, the male impotency pill which acts on the sexual organs, the drug given to women in this study acts on the brain. Tests carried out by Ian Russell, a specialist nurse at Dumfries and Galloway NHS Trust, have produced promising results. His work is featured in the BBC Two Science programme Horizon. Ten women suffering from reduced sexual desire were treated with a drug called apomorphine. Apomorphine is active in the brain where it mimics...

Diminished sexual desire can lead to feelings of unhappiness, concern, frustration, and leave a lasting impact on a woman's relationship with her partner. An investigational hormone patch developed by Proctor & Gamble and now in clinical trials may offer hope to post-menopausal women who have experienced a decline in sexual desire.
