There is a reason some of these guys are in podcasting.

Sorry, had to vote for Dr. Tiki here....he is probably the best looking guy in the bunch (from a hetero male point of view).

I'm saying that women should be the primary factor yes. I don't find anything wrong with a guy complimenting a guy on his looks, as long as it doesn't cross that line to where someone ends up at the hospital. You always want to watch what you are saying because sometimes the wrong words can slip out and you don't know if they are angry/violent with people that offend them.
But yeah, only women please.
A guy can guess if a woman might find interest into a guy by his personality and appearance, but not much further than that.
If you don't want to go beyond the line by accident, just say something like, "looking sharp/good/etc. today man," or anything on that line.

Other than the one who started this thread (and I don't know for sure), I'm pretty sure wizkid and paintguru are men (not boys, mind you, MEN). Wizkid, if you are a woman, I'm sorry. I'm a woman. And as a woman, I applaud that men can find other men attractive and not lose their sense of hetero masculinity (for lack of better words). I find that it shows a sign of maturity and being comfortable with their own sexuality. Of course, there is a difference between saying "so and so is a good looking man" and unwanted sexual advances. I don't think the latter is taking place here. If the latter were to occur, the mature man could say, "I'm sorry...I'm not interested," or "I'm not gay." Either way, the mature man will take it in stride and perhaps feel a little bit flattered. I would hope that he can back away gracefully without having to resort to violence.

I am taking this way too seriously. Sorry, Tom...Dr. Tiki is floating my boat right now.

I can partially see how you might get that, not losing your temper is a sign of maturity, no one should hit someone because of what they do, that doesn't solve anything except create more violence between the two types of people. But, you have to understand that if I dislike someone people of what they do, like getting too comfortable with their sexuality to where you accept ceratin people and their actions that disgust me, or the people that disgust me themselves, then it is okay if I dislike them. It is not juvenille or immature, it is just a show of your beliefs and morality.

And why do you lust after people in such a way? floating your boat? don't you think that is a little immature?

But I didn't want this thread to go into a direction where people start spewing hate. You stated your opinions, I stated mine. Let's leave it at that.

One more thing before I leave this thread...I'm probably old enough to be your mother...I can lust if want, nah nah nah nah nah nah! Wink

Just a word of advice, it's not healthy for a person to lust after something or someone that they know isn't right for them.

Disliking someone because of their normality conflicting with your morality isn't always wrong.
But, racism is not a subject that can be compared to "morality" differences.

P.S.: I'm trying not to bring up certain topics.

Youre right... reading the above I realize that the wrong words can make someone sound like a total idiot.

I for one find Tom sexually stimulating and will vote for him for the pretty eye candy that he is. If you want me to vote on whose physical appearance turns me on the most, then mister Merritt is the one that I will vote for. Tall, smart and geeky is always guaranteed to please.

You are not asking for best or brightest, you are asking for sex appeal. Might as well just ask "Which podcaster would you like to engage in forbidden carnal delights?". Or you can be a prude about it.

tom is trailing 58-41% so go on everyone and vote for him...

Considering the entire population of the United States, yes, I do think that most Americans think that. But, do we need to change every moral we have? That's like saying that murder is out of date and no one should be punished for it. You have to think of who actually is changing these morals that we have lived by. What has been done that has changed our belief system?

<i>But, do we need to change every moral we have? That's like saying that murder is out of date and no one should be punished for it. </i>

There is no comparison whatsoever between two men or or two women in love, living their lives together and minding their own business and someone committing and act of murder.

And don't forget there used to be "moral" excuses for keeping black people and women in their places too. Morality has often been used as a justification to uphold prejudice.

that this kind of vote reminds me of the classic "Vote for Chris Christmas Rodriguez" campaign popularized by (among others) Amanda Congdon of Rocketboom fame:

http://www.rocketboom.com/vlog/rb_04_nov_19

You'll need to watch the entire video to get the voting parallel. And, I must say, this thread's vote is probably about as important as the Rodriguez vote.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
