It annoys me greatly when people get angry solely because others have different viewpoints than they do and choose to express them. If we all thought alike, would this not be the most boring place?

'Rant on gay people'Collapse )

If you're going to flame me for this - don't. Learn to be a bit more tolerant of other people's viewpoints. You'll notice that I don't go off on screaming rants because I think that you're not seeing something - I'll discuss it calmly and logically. (I find it much more difficult to fend of a properly logical point than I do to fend of a raving lunatic that's foaming at the mouth.) If you have a point, feel free to make it, but be calm and present a good argument for it.

The "gay thing" is just a good example and the most recent, which is why it was shared; my opinion differs greatly from many others, but I wish that people would be more tolerant of other people's opinions and willing to prove them wrong with cold logic rather than sitting around ranting and raving about it. Seriously now, people; I had hoped we'd have grown out of this by high school. By the time you can reason, you should be able to think clearly.

you are darkslategray

Your dominant hues are green and blue. You're smart and you know it, and want to use your power to help people and relate to others. Even though you tend to battle with yourself, you solve other people's conflicts well.

Your saturation level is lower than average - You don't stress out over things and don't understand people who do. Finishing projects may sometimes be a challenge, but you schedule time as you see fit and the important things all happen in the end, even if not everyone sees your grand master plan.

Your outlook on life is dark. You're generally a pessimist and everyone knows it; you're the one the come to when they don't want the sunshine blown around, they just want to straight truth. You can miss good things in life if you make up your mind too early though.
the html color quiz

Of the 19560 livejournallers who have taken the quiz, 793 (4.05%) were darkslategray.

Very nice. Very pleased with this result. Most definitely me to a T.

::laughs and laughs; bites fist::

"What do you think of Affirmative Action?"
"I think that the only reason why we have such a ridiculous policy is because most minority people just can't compete well on a truly level playing field."

Ouch! ::laughs:: That's hilarious! (And no, that's not the answer that I chose; I despise Affirmative Action, but everyone starts out equal in my mind.)

"Do you think the Ten Commandments should be allowed to hang on the walls of federal buildings, such as in courthouses and public schools?"

I have no problem with the Ten Commandments because they are the most basic form of law. If you'll look around the laws of most, if not all, countries, you'll see them in some form or other. Heck, we probably have 500 laws for each Commandment in our set of laws. So why should they be prohibited? I don't see them solely as a religious thing; they're a matter of logic. (And I'll stop there and not get into my views on religion.)

"What is your opinion on racial profiling?"
"I think minorities are more apt to commit crimes, anyway. Search the sorts of people most apt to be criminals, I say."

While this raises a valid point (minorities are indeed more likely to commit crimes), perhaps it is this same view that then causes such a statement to be true? Self-fulfilling prophecies can be a bitch.

GAH! They don't have my opinion (or anything that resembles it) on the topic of homosexuality (as was discussed in a post about half an hour ago).

Where do you fall on the liberal - conservative political spectrum? (United States)

I am a conservative. That's actually good to know, as I didn't know earlier. :) Now I can answer that question when I am asked it; glad I took the quiz.

Yeah, didn't see that one coming.

Season = Winter
You're Most Like The Season Winter ...

You're often depicted as the cold, distant season.
But you're incredibly intelligent, mature and
Independant. You have an air of power around
you - and that can sometimes scare people off.
You're complex, and get hurt easily - so you
rarely let people in if you can help it. You
can be somewhat of a loner, but just as easily
you could be the leader of many. You Tend to be
negative, and hard to relate to, but you give
off a relaxed image despite being insecure -
and secretly many people long to be like you,
not knowing how deep the Winter season really

Well done... You're the most inspirational of
seasons :)

moredit: So, to sum up the last three quizzes in reverse order of appearance - Logic and intelligence, logic, intelligence. Seems to be a pattern there somewhere.

And another relative bites the dust. ::sigh:: I liked him, too, even though we rarely saw him.

From the debate over balancing one-handed and two-handed weapons:

I think I have to agree. ::completely straight face::
