re: seeing the actual prices of transplant surgery is sobering. - gorillacoco
[quote]LOL at healthcare transparency. First no one pays this. Honestly no one. This is what is charged not what is paid. Insurance companies have contractuals so they don't pay that. Those with no insurance will get a bill for that but won't ever pay. I would take the numbers you see there and mult...

re: Native Americans: Hunting and Food Preservation - gorillacoco
[quote]Sounds pretty tasty. I would assume they did this with deer meat as well. Hard to beat good jerky. [/quote] Did they have a good source of salt? Meat without salt is pretty bland....

re: Which human being has made the biggest impact on human history? - gorillacoco
[quote]Well considering the Christian religion has been the bedrock foundation that Western Civilization has been built on for the past roughly 2000 years, I say that alone is far and away more significant than Genghis Khan and his empire that is nothing more than a footnote in history today compara...

[quote]Gengis Khan is a very important figure in history. But to say his impact on history is bigger than that of Christ, is absurd. [/quote] Please elaborate how western culture was altered more than the Mongolian conquering of the Asian continent....

re: Which human being has made the biggest impact on human history? - gorillacoco
I would have to agree that Jesus was the most influential historical figure in western history. This is still overshadowed by the population and culture of Asia which far outweighs all of western civ....

[quote]wut? The crusades, Charlemagne, Constantine, the fall of the Roman Empire, the Vatican, Martin Luther, the 100 Years War, the 30 Years War. I mean damn, the list goes on and on and it all goes back to Jesus being crucified as the genesis of all of it. And I'm not a Christian fwiw. [/quote] ...

[quote]You would ignore the impact of the single greatest movement in human history.[/quote] Which were? How did Christianity change the culture of Europe? Were the Romans after Christianity significantly different from their forebears? Why would they have acted significantly differently had Chri...

[quote]Another honest question: khan conquered Asia. Cool. How did that resonate throughout history? [/quote] By replacing the rulers of china, India, and Persia with Mongolians, who were from a completely different culture and way of life....

[quote]The fact that you are so confident about this statement makes me not want to even try. [/quote] Always amusing when people vacate an argument without presenting any evidence. The funniest part is that Jesus' effect on the history of human political events is actually unimportant (ETA: reli...

re: Which human being has made the biggest impact on human history? - gorillacoco
[quote]Yep. Like I said, the answer has to be a religious figure. I'd agree it's subjective beyond that.[/quote] That's exactly why it doesn't have to be a religious figure. Those guys are more or less interchangeable as far as actually affecting the real events on the ground. That's why someone ...

re: Which human being has made the biggest impact on human history? - gorillacoco
Ghengis khan. Sorry but there's really no other answer. A lot of rulers used Christianity as a justification for their actions but the majority of them would have done what they did anyway. Ghengis single handedly reshaped the anthropological legacy of all of Asia and the Middle East. And part of Eu...

re: Do you consider yourself a romantic person? - gorillacoco
[quote]Unless a good cuddle and the frequent random drive by arse grab counts. If so, I'm romantic as hell. [/quote] This too. I love doing nice things for my (2nd) wife. She doesn't make me feel like it's expected, and she appreciates it, so I honestly enjoy doing shite for her. Still, I've lost a...
