    Any activity, whether positive or negative, is addictive if continued to a certain extent. Some activities, such as the ones DavidP stated, are more addictive than others.

    Sure, listening to music is addictive. I'm living proof of that. No matter where I go, I'm listening to music.

    Some people(AKA Govtcheez) are addicted to making ridiculous posts that make people fall on the floor dying.

    Just kidding, Govtcheez. We love you to death.

    I was under the impression that with heroin you could become addicted instantly. I also remember readining an article in the New Sci a while back suggesting that even small amounts (ie. taking it once or twice) of certain drugs may permanently alter the brain.
    you are quite right about heroin, .10 USD of it is enough to give you a physical addiction to it. On the mental addiction side, it is like nail biting, you get into the habit of doing something, then you have to actually think about NOT doing it to not do it.

    You've got Jesus, I've got boobs. Neither one of them is really that productive, but they're both cool for us.
    You could argue that while boobs are kinda productive reproduction-wise, the pope indeed is a big factor in human reproduction banning protective measures. So both are kinda (re)productive

    What's the reason?
    The reason is that this a a pg13 site and the country that gave this rating tolerates violence and wages wars, but cannot stand public nudity or even *gasp* pron. Not to mention Nipplegate.

    She was so Blonde, she spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice can because it said "Concentrate."

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    maybe because it's the most widely used movie rating system?

    well if you are not from America, then I might be able to understand why you have never heard of pg13, because it is mainly an American system.

    However, if you are from America, then no offense boy but you are living in a cave and you need to get out more.

    I think we can safely assume that English is not his first language, and secondly, I've been led to believe that America is not where he calls home.

    Ober, I'm curious. What country is this with a language that requires no capitalization?

    not quite. The US in terms of regulations is pretty strict all around, for example I have not seen any R-rated movie that has people graphically and reallistically getting their heads shot off, or being disemboweled, which in porn would be equivalent to basic hardcore. Both of the previous would given a rating of NC-17 by the US MPAA.

    I can handle most violence and gore, but disembowelment just makes my stomach turn more than anything.

    You do got to amit that the US is a little easier on violence than nudity though. As far as I know, frontal nudity other than breasts is not allowed in R movies, at least I've never seen it in R movies before. I'd say full frontal nudity would be the equivilent to dismemberment, which is allowed in R movies.

    I just wish people would not get so worked up over little things like nudity. Everyone has a 99.9% chance of seeing the opposite sex in the nude during their life anyway. It's not like you'll be scarred by seeing it, and it's not depriving the security of your life or country in any way. It's just the human body. If parents would take more time to tell their kids what's right and wrong, we probably wouldn't have to worry about it.
