I'm a 24 year old guy from Magnolia, Texas/United States
About me: I am a junior in college pursuing a bachelor's degree in political science. Politics is my passion, but I also love playing golf, bowling, films, music, hanging out with friends and traveling. I joined RIA in 2003 and for about a year was a regular contributor, but eventually my schedule just got too busy and I drifted away. I'm hoping to make a comeback because I still believe RIA is a wonderful place to meet interesting people and share one's opinions. It's good to be back.

It would be even better if we could promote the benefits of regular reading on a daily basis, but I suppose a national holiday would be a good start. I only fear that it would be another excuse to miss work and sit around watching Jerry Springer re-runs.

Easy and ripe with largely unknown but not insubstantial cost benefits. Many state and municpal governments are actively promoting recycling as an effective means of improving the environment; if a sufficiently aggressive effort is made, recycling could become a more widespread practice and the environmental benefits will increase exponentially.

Simple, easy and cost-effective. We are all guilty of neglecting this at times, but I know many people who seem almost incapable of flipping a switch or pressing a button to shut off the tube. A fairly instructive example of how environmental consciousness can help rather than hurt one's pocketbook.

Not at all what I was expecting, but I found Sunshine Cleaning strangely intriguing. Some scenes and situations were difficult, almost heartbreaking to watch, but others were humorous and light-hearted. I thought the balance between the two was off and the sequencing a bit choppy (the transition from comedic to intensely serious scenes was too abrupt), but the film was certainly unique and ultimately enjoyable.

This is certainly significant became it reframes the terms of the existing debate over same-sex marriage. The Vermont law marks the first instance of legislative endorsement of same-sex marriage -- and not only was it enacted, but it was enacted with a supermajority of sufficient strength to override a gubernatorial veto. Regardless of one's view of this action, it is difficult to dispute its significance. If more states follow suit, the attacks against judicial activism which cultural conservatives often use in their arguments against same-sex marriage-- whether scrupulously or not -- will lose its poignancy. The dynamics of this debate are slowly but surely changing.

But then I'd have to spend all of my time perusing "Best Ways to Recover Wasted Money" lists. No thanks. I prefer the old-fashioned weight loss strategies: exercise and smart eating habits.

I wasn't aware that masturbation was an effective weight loss technique. Looks like I'm going to have to rearrange my schedule a bit.

Hmm, let's see: you will feel miserable, look ridiculous and could very well run the risk of poking someone's eye out with a flying shirt or pants button. Sounds like a good idea to me!

I don't know, that forty-five minute commute to work and school would become unbearably difficult and far more time-consuming. Besides, if I had to carry all of my work/school stuff while walking, how would I eat my honey bun? Driving and eating simultaneously is my birthright!

Easier said than done, but there's little disputing the argument that less sugar generally means less weight and a healthier body.
