Yes, friend. Socialism has worked out great for these nations that all have less than a tenth of the population of the US. Not that I don't appreciate the Socialist model, but it can't really support a massive population, especially when the way that it would be executed would still be in favor of the people who suck up unemployment benefits. The problem with Socialism here is that people already only strive to succeed with a minimal amount of effort, and giving them more for an equally small amount of effort would only hurt the people that work incredibly hard to succeed. In the end, it removes the ability for people to exceed or fail.
Not saying that bigheads should receive massive subsidies as they do, but when the population has fallen for entirely extrinsic motivations, it's impossible to encourage people to really strive for anything greater than the norm if all they're going to receive in the end is what you would receive for doing the norm.
I share beliefs for both sides, but socialism only sounds good when you've already got the short end of the stick. Reward people by merit.

woah woah woah hold the fuck up, paul martin was not a socialist, hell the liberal party barely scratches the surface of the left wing in comparison to those scandinavian countries . Canada is more centrist than anything, and even the NDP aren't that far on the left wing.

Because America should be run like those countries. We are exactly the same, all full of hardworking citizens who won't abuse the system.
Just because it works in countries with about 1/3 of the US's population doesn't mean it will work here. Look at all the lazy, good-for-nothings this country is full of and ask yourself "do I want to pay extra taxes for them?"

uhhhh...i suggest you go look at the rates of people who or on social security and welfare. only about 3.5% of recipients could ACTUALLY be considered abusers. it's a common myth that republicans seem to enjoy perpetuating that people on social security don't want to work.

#180 - sovereignsunkown (02/16/2013) [-]
that's not what i'm trying to say.
the human brain "hears" music 4 notes ahead of what your ear hears, your brain likes to "predict" what's coming. more highly capable brains can predict more possible outcomes, and this allows them to find constant, unpredictable changes appealing, because their brain is capable of "predicting" enough permutations of notes beyond the major scale (which our brains are naturally attuned to) to "predict" that outcome, among others. it's specifically the note structure, not any lyrical value
#129 - kingpongthedon (02/16/2013) [-]
Interestingly enough, after accounting for socioeconomic differences, this isn't the case at all. When adjusted, there's little evidence to support any relation between complex music and learning ability. There just isn't any reason for the auditory sensory parts of your brain to strengthen the math and language areas. However, there is a very strong correlation between rap/hip-hop and language skills, due to the lyrical orientation of the genre. I must stress this again though; this is only the case after adjusting for differences in socioeconomic levels.

But you also have to be clear on whether you mean classical music in general or rather the classical era of music, the classical era of music was <100 years and included composers like Mozart, Beethoven, and Handel. Because the classical era was very simplistic in design, preferring grand homophonic symphonies and was relatively non-complex rather than the more complex forms as favoured in the romantic and early 20th century.

I don't think this is true. But, that's mainly because that was exactly the answer I wanted to hear.

This is bullshit, it's just sovereignsunkown's way of acting like preference of music makes you smarter, & just because lil wayne sucks doesn't mean that genre sucks, there's a lot of rap out there that DOESN'T suck, & music doesn't even come close to defining your fucking intelligence
#85 - meganinja (02/16/2013) [-]
You're incorrect in the respects that nobody said people who like rap music scored low, just people who like lil Wayne. Also while preference in music is highly unlikely to change your scores on a test (unless the music motivates you to do shit on the test somehow), I could see where preference in music could be an indicator of how well somebody could do on an SAT. Not saying I trust this fact, but I can see where it's coming from.

Interesting, since I like lots of electronic music, and some progressive metal, while my friend is the opposite, lots of metal and a little electronic. I'm not saying we are geniuses but we are above average in each of our favorite fields, His being math and physics, mine being Chemistry and Biology.

not really, because you just believed something a total stranger told you on the internet. give me a source and i'll believe that

Well a total ban isn't going door to door and collecting firearms. Instead it makes the sale and manufacture of them illegal, which therefore means that the people who already own said rifles will not have their rifles taken away instead after the person dies that rifle will be destroyed. They are getting rid of firearms in a generation.

on a second thought.
i could be like the last generation's spoilers, you know, they used different colors on the starters to confuse people.
maybe this one is froakie's evo but they modified it to look more like fennekin, because it kinda looks like it, paint it blue and replace all the hair with bubbles...

yeah, MH3U is by far the most popular game in the series so far, and i'm happy about that, but when you compare it's north american success to it's success in japan...it's almost pathetic.
there is an entire section of universal studios theme park in japan dedicated to the series, no fucking joke

not really. i consider him pretty below average, especially compared to other musicians in heavy music.
have you heard Ron Jarzombek (Blotted Science), Christian Muenzner (Obscura, Necrophagist, Spawn of Possession), Muhammed Suicmez (Necrophagist), Scott Carstairs (Fallujah) or Mike Keene (The Faceless)?
all of them make Tim look like a 13 year old who just bought his first guitar
