its masochist :)
I thought I spelled that wrong. It's not a word I use very often ;)
Make you want to be a terrorist, eh? ;)
Mario is into S&M.
Gawd! No way. That's too depressing.
I think I took the analogy too far. Very dangerous things, analogies :p
Speaking of torture, anyone seen the new Bond movie? That was sweet.
You guys are taking this way too seriously. The questions are not my opinions! They are simply there to be answered.
The reason there are so many options for the US and 1 for Other is for demographics -- I want to analyze responses based upon where the US overall stands, where individual parts stand, and where the rest of the world stands (of course the sample size is far too small to be truly accurate, but w/e).
Also, my definition of torture is the same as the first definition on dictionary.com --And the US didn't comply with Geneva convention rules prior to the USSC's ruling on Jun 29th in Hamdan v. Rumsfeld. Don't interpret the questions as opinions or lack of research -- simply answer them! :)Quote:
the act of inflicting excruciating pain, as punishment or revenge, as a means of getting a confession or information, or for sheer cruelty.
Thank you all :)
This thread sucks.....
> The questions are not my opinions!
Seriously, your questions suck. The capital punishment and eye for an eye thing make no sense at all.
edit: Unless you're trying to draw a retarded correlation between people who are for torture and people who are for the death penalty. If you are doing that, you're really missing the point of the torture debate.
> You guys are taking this way too seriously.
You are clearly way out of the loop.
> I want to analyze responses based upon where the US overall stands
Just next to Canada.
> and where the rest of the world stands
Inside US or knocking at its door.
> And the US didn't comply with Geneva convention rules
It's no good to post a survey and then plant a suggestion.
I'm not going to email you, of course. That would be silly. But if you really want to know the opinion of an european, then it should be something like america is evil, and is a great investor. All americans are great fellas, we love their money, and we want them dead. We like their planes and we hope a lot of them die fighting for democracy and freedom while we watch soaps and have high level peace meetings with those killing americans.
Apparently they are because they are, in many cases, completely subjective. Oh, and you still haven't given your definition of torture which is key to the survey. Now we got people going ape.......... in this thread because they think we're sitting prisoners in cut out basket chairs and swinging large lead balls at the end of chains into their nuts for torture. Down with torture! Down with bad US policies!Quote:

I am not debating anything.
I think you misunderstand: I am not the one who made all the questions.
Also, the questions will most likely have a bias, simply so that you can measure how much you agree with it. Trust me, you have no idea what my personal bias is. I'm simply asking you to fill out the survey. If you don't want to -- fine.
I wasn't planting a suggestion -- I was stating a fact as a point to the accusation that I didn't do research (which is beside the point anyway).
Please read my previous post, SlyMaelstrom. I think you'll find that I did, in fact, give my definition of torture.
Don't interpret the questions or say I'm trying to draw correlations from anything. I am simply asking different questions (the first five are obviously for demographics -- those are the only ones I will use to make any correlations with any individual questions).
