I'm so frustrated right now. In Mario Kart Wii's online battle, these two griefers did nothing but bully me. If they were on my team, they would follow me around, crash into me, and jump in place on their bikes. If against me I was their primary target. I lost 600 ranking points because of it.

And for some bizarre reason, all my other teammates SUCKED for some reason. It's the only thing I despise about Mario Kart Wii's online: it does not take into account of whether or not your teammates sucked, so even if you're the highest scoring person on the team, you still lose ranking points. And Funky Stadium is the worst battle course ever made. It's too big, making it impossible to catch up to anyone. And I dislike how MKW's ranking system is a "you gain some, you lose all" philosophy, with wins giving you 30 points and losses subtracting near hundreds.

I really enjoyed Road Runner's Death Valley Rally for the SNES when I was a kid.

Actually, in Super Mario Galaxy you can breathe in vacuum but not underwater, but in Super Paper Mario they make the point that it's the other way 'round.

Once, in a battle with the Crystal King, I had him down to 2 or 3 HP left, and I had no FP. Mario was frozen and was also close to death; I had no more Life Shrooms. I had Lakilester as my current partner, and Crystal King had divided into three. I could not hit them all at the same time for lack of FP, but I knew if it didn't defeat Crystal King then I'd lose the battle. So I used Lakilester's Shiny Throw and aimed randomly at the middle one-- and it was the right one. I won the battle in luck.

I found growing a mustache becomes itchy and oily after a while, but growing a beard isn't bad. However, I grow facial hair a lot slower than what is normal, and I'm pretty shaggy and patchy when I grow it out-- I don't get 5 o'clock shadow, even a week after shaving.

You could count the freaky conspiracy at the Glitz Pit.

One pattern I noticed:

PM: Save the Mushroom Kingdom
PMTTYD: Save the World
SPM: Save the Universe

So the next Paper Mario should focus on saving the multi-verse or something.

No, I was saying what was considered "blasphemous" then isn't now, because our understanding of the world has significantly changed. So why shouldn't our understanding of homosexuality change as well? And don't respond with the cheap "well then rape and [long list of taboos] will have to be condoned also."

Way to copy and paste and not read the rest of the post.

During the time the Bible was written, people's understanding of the world was primitive. The only reason that "spilling a seed" was condemned because they did not know of eggs and ovulation, believing that the man's semen was the child in of itself. Masturbation was conclusively murder. They also lived in a time where their numbers were scarce and preventing the population from growing was treason. From a pamphlet I once read about homosexuality and the Bible:

"The Biblical authors knew nothing of homosexual orientation as we understand it, and therefore said nothing to condemn or approve it."
He also says the Biblical authors believed the earth was flat and the sun moved up and down.

"There is a growing body of evidence from science, psychology, history, psychiatry, medicine, and personal experience that leads to a clear verdict: Homosexuality is neither a sickness nor a sin. Unfortunately, the church has always been slow, if not the last institution on earth, to accept new truth."

We cannot depend solely on the Bible, which we all know is thousands of years outdated, to strictly run our lives. It can be used as guidance, like "love your neighbor," "give thanks to your parents," simple stuff like that. But our understanding of the world has grown so much now; the customs developed then can't always apply to us. I have a Jewish friend who, once on Passover, ate a muffin sandwich with eggs and bacon. ("Triple whammy!" he said) He told me that pigs are not considered kosher because they were dirty and thus diseased. Meat and dairy shouldn't be eaten together because the animal cannot digest in its mother's milk. But given the way food's processed nowadays, he said, there is little chance of disease from pig meat and that the carton of milk you're drinking is most likely not related the steak you're eating. We also consider pedophilia and necrophilia taboo as well, even though it isn't mentioned in the Bible. And the difference between homosexuality and rape is that there is no love in rape and it could very well be a threat to the victim's life.

Not eating shellfish or pork is more part of Judaism (as with the rest of Leviticus); it doesn't apply to Christian believers, as Jesus and Paul said.

As a Christian, I stand by the following statement: "Love the sinner, hate the sin".
There's not really anywhere in the Bible that says homosexuality is a sin.
