The "whatever's on your mind" thread

One of the things that's great about this forum is its randomness. Well, this is the epitome of it: a thread for whatever random thought happens to be passing through your mind.

For example, I've just been struck by the most random craving for Taco Bell nachos.

    I've signed a NDA*, so I can't possibly comment.

    * NDA stands for 'none dependable association'.

    Anyone know if Sony still accepts repairs for the old units?

    I dunno how much they charge. Perhaps you should look into whether there are local repair shops who will charge less and/or take less time.

    Sex doesn't exist in Disney movies! I'm sure that beneath their underthings they're all like Ken and Barbie dolls.
    See, that's where I am on the issue of JK Rowling telling someone that Dumbledore is gay.

    Now, I mean no offense to gay people when I say this, but Harry Potter is a children's/family story, and while there is romance between characters, sex itself in no way enters into the reader's mind while reading it. The very nature of singling a character out for their sexual orientation, when the story makes no mention of it whatsoever, and when it in no way changes the character's motives in the story, is ludicrous and nothing more than pandering to the gay community.

    Again, this isn't a bash on gays; this is my complaint about injecting the topic of sex (gay sex in this instance) where to do so makes no benefit whatsoever to the story and also doesn't fit considering the sensitivity and mature nature of raising such a topic when the target audience is supposed to be kids.

    It's like discussing racial equality with regard to the story by saying Lavender Brown is supposed to be black or something, when who the hell cares and what difference does it make to even bring it up?

    EDIT: I'm not saying that someone being gay bothers me. I'm saying that my opinion on difference in race is "Who cares? You're a person same as me so it doesn't matter." And for me it's the same with being gay: If someone is black, then they are. Big deal. Who cares. Why mention it? If someone is gay, then they are. Big deal. Who cares. Why mention it?

    I'm just sick of people injecting the topic into a discussion where it's not warranted, necessary, nor applicable--merely pandering.
