  1. Is this a good IA question? What factors led to Saddam Hussein’s invasion of Kuwait?
  2. The only reason that those people have such high incomes is because WE give it to them. If no one was interested in watching football, then the football players would not be making millions. Just as Nrsander said, it's supply and demand.
  3. A lot of responses say that murder is depriving someone of life, but what's to say that we have a right to life or that death is bad?
  4. "The road to hell is paved with good intentions" You have to remember that these people who are trying to pass the bill are like ancient and know little about today's technology and ate still trying to regulate it. http://www.washingtonpost.com/business/economy/sopa-hearings-cast-debate-as-old-media-vs-new-media/2011/12/16/gIQAmCD3yO_story.html There is no way to stop piracy, so let's embrace it
  5. I would say definitely NOT good writing and NOT IB level, but the books aren't as gad as it's made out to be (although the movies are ridiculous). It sucked that there was no epic battle.
  6. lol I loved it because i love dystopian novels
  7. Great Expectations, To Kill a Mockingbird, Wuthuring Heights, Joy Luck Club, A Separate Peace
  8. Love is not always the reason for marriage: Not sure if this has already been said or not, but marriage is often used to acquire property, rights, money, etc. especially back then with all the royalty and nobles, and even nowadays too, there are cases where one party exploits another's love for them. Another reason may be pregnancy and pressure to get married due to external sources (financial, religious, familial. etc) The concept of marriage though, definitely comes from religion.
  9. The only thing that I think is bad is that we are forced to learn a foreign language that we can't speak fluently and will probably forget after graduation. Unless you are like me and is taking a language that I speak (Chinese) I am Chinese-American, born in the US and I definitely consider myself more American then Chinese, but alas, my skin color/Asian look classify me as Chinese.
  10. That is one of the most disturbed and f*cked up things I have ever read. Dear Lord, where do you get your information from? Where do you get off gay couples forcing their adoptive children or so being gay? My neighbours are a gay couple and they're some of the nicest people I've ever met. I dunno which rock you live under, but if you do ever listen to the news, it's generally the opposite, straight couples force their gay children to be straight. You would think that a gay couple constitutes people who at some level have been encouraged to not be who they are, these people more than anyone els
  11. What do you think about this bill? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stop_Online_Piracy_Act
