Comment: I hear and read that 95% of domestic violence victims are female,
but male-rights websites show research that domestic violence is a two-way
street; which is true?

in place on some computers.

Comment: I am inquiring about some websites on bdsm (bondage) which have a
lot of violence and tortue against women. Is there possibly a link
between these photos and: domestic violence and prison violence? A lot of
these scenes involve partners and also prison settings and equipment. Is
it possible that a lot of ex-convicts, and prison guards, military, and
other violent occupations, are drawn to it in their personal lives as
well, aside from their professional?

Yes - it keeps imagining it has these little creatures living on it, scratching at its skin and slowly poisoning it. The other planets just can't believe the crazy tales the Earth comes up with. Although they are concerned that the earth as been looking a little unwell lately and is running a slight fever.

candidates to help me make a decision before voting on either republican

Comment: I don't know if you've already been asked this question but here
goes: If church and state are supposed to be separate why do people swear
on the bible in court, wouldn't that be a violation of church and state?

Blast! My nefarious plot to bring the world to its knees by carefully wrapping it in email chains until it chokes and fueling my empire of rumour mills has been discovered (mostly).

Quickly! Release the hounds with bees in their mouths and when they bark they shoot bees at you!

Yeah, I've got nothing. People spread email chainmail for the same reason they did it to real chainmail. They're taken in by a deception, they think it's funny, or they're attempting to get something for nothing by 'beating the system' (and playing into exactly what the chainmailer intended by doing so).

Oh, come on now. Why can't this question be made into an article? Would it rock your snopes world to have to create a brand new section called "Questions We All Want To Know The Answer To"? You could even put the liberal media question in there!!!
