grokit is a Recognised Debater
About grokit:
I just like to argue. Sometimes I argue the opposite of the way I personally feel about an issue, and sometimes I argue passionately about things I actually care about. It really makes no difference to me, I enjoy having empathy for "the other side", as long as they are capable of arguing intelligently.
grokit's Interests:
I just like to argue. And litter, picket abortion clinics, go to war rallies, guzzle cheap beer, eat pork rinds, and murder defenseless wild animals for "sport"; Not! More like wine, women, and song. And what's left of our "natural" environment.

1. Excellent. Deep breathing, proper nutrition, exercise; all this helps take the stress out of our emotional responses. And I do appreciate the "art" of conflict avoidance; I totally disagree with Verum on that (but I am posting over here to avoid conflict). Learn to "be like the river, and flow around obstacles". For me, that saying is tied with "live every day like it could be your last". read more...

2. They're both criminals, and they both suck. Even though a Ronin would probably kill a Captain Hook in a fight, it has nothing to do with being "cool". read more...

3. Life is Hell, and the only way to "shed this mortal coil", is to break the cycle by achieving Grace. If we don't achieve Grace, we will be doomed to endlessly repeat life on this Earth until we do. Ancient Egyptians believed that upon death they would be asked two questions and their answers would determine whether they could continue their journey in the afterlife. The first question was, 'Did you bring joy?' The second was, 'Did you find joy?' That is my motivation, anyways, for trying to leave at least my part of the world in better condition than it was when I found it. read more...

4. Absynthe is but a "drop" in the alcoholic bucket. Alcoholic beverages are by far the most widely abused mind-altering substance ever known to mankind, with the most associated costs to society. We should ban all alcoholic beverages, if we're considering a ban, not just Absynthe. read more...

5. "To be, or not to be, —that is the question:— Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune Or to take arms against a sea of troubles, And by opposing end them? "To die, —to sleep,— No more; and by a sleep to say we end The heartache, and the thousand natural shocks That flesh is heir to, —'tis a consummation Devoutly to be wish'd. To die, —to sleep;— To sleep! Perchance to dream: —ay, there's the rub" From: Hamlet's soliloquy, by William Shakespeare read more...
