Because it is. By our very nature we are not monogomous. Men were biologically designed to have several female partners. Hence why we can orgasm like every ten minutes whereas it takes nine months for one woman to have a child.
This is BS.
Explain why. If men were meant to be monogomous then how come we can orgasm so fast whereas it takes a woman nine months to have a child? The reason is because we were designed to impregnate several women. If men were meant to be monogomous then wouldn't you think that we would only be able to orgasm every nine months to be on the same pace as our wife?
Let me put it this way, and see if it helps you understand why everyone is all "Whaaa?":

You're equating apples and oranges... in this case: orgasms and gestation. They are two separate things entirely. And really, your argument works against you. Women can potentially orgasm in more rapid succession than men, in that females have a shorter refractory period. To put it bluntly: once a man orgasms, his body needs time to recover before arousal is possible again (adolescence notwithstanding  ;) ). On the other hand, once a woman orgasms, her body is still in a state of arousal.

It would be better for your argument against monogamy being biological if you took orgasms out of the equation entirely, and instead focused on what you hinted at earlier: the woman gestates a baby, and for 9 months at that, while the man remains physically unencumbered despite fathering a child or copious amounts of children. Even if a woman had multiple partners her potential yield of children remains relatively set. A man, however, could certainly increase his yield of children if he increased his partners.

I hope I'm clear as mud, because I can't bring myself to type orgasm one more time. Fin.
To this, I would add that women can also if they so choose have sex and orgasm during pregnancy.

I rarely talk about the weather, but seriously I hate the summer and this heat wave is insane.

It is going to be the death of me and my car. I hope I go first.

So none of my friends want to go with me to an 8 hour Nolan Batman marathon on the 19th. Would it be super lame to go by myself?

I want to make your second sentence my signature. So funny.

This weather is terrible. Summer sucks. We had someone come out and look at our AC today and it was just super depressing. I was actually planning on recounting the whole experience as I started typing this but I don't have the willpower and in this heat who cares anyway? My thermostat's temperature gauge reads: "Pit of hell". I'm pretty sure my house is where bad people go when they die.

I like fall. It reminds me of playing tackle football with friends.

I think people who actually like summers are seriously misguided and/or distorted. The heat is unbearable.

If you are trying to post an image it has to be a link to the actual image, ending in .jpg or .gif or .bmp or something like that. You appear to be linking just to a search from Google. Go to the pic you want (actually click on it), then right click on it and copy the link/shortcut, then paste that link here to post an image of it.

^Thank you. I have posted pictures before, but you are correct, that one gave me trouble for the reason you mentioned above.

Would you perhaps think it disadvantageous for the stronger male of a monogamous species set in a more primitive tribal construct to be as equally immobile as its pregnant mate? Or is the ability for the male counterpart to continue to provide and defend the familial unit a more desirable arrangement?

The answer may prove troubling to your porn addiction.

Depends on who they are. Often you don't have to. You can just be away from them.

Keep in mind that evolution and religion are two separate things.  As a homo sapiens having multiple partners is not only permissible, but advantageous, specifically if you only provide for the most superior of the little bundles of genes.

As a Christian no, you cannot.

I stole a Calvin and Hobbes book from a classmate. Only time I stole anything when I was young. I still regret it.

You are not far from the kingdom of God!
And neither are the members of As I Lay Dying. :)

Speaking of them, I wonder if Tim Lambesis is Greek Orthodox (he's part Greek).

His parents seemed to be loaded (from the DVD I watched), isn't that a Greek Orthodox thing?  ;D


Also, I love the smell of books.

I hate insomnia. I can never fall asleep in a reasonable manner. I may start buying melatonin in bulk.

I don't have insomnia, although, strangely, I choose to stay up until a very late time, yet I still wake up reasonably early at around 9:00AM. I usually do not go to bed until about 3:00AM.

Does it really work? Or maybe for some and not others?  Seems a bit too good to be true.
It's a naturally occurring hormone in the human body that helps regulate sleep cycles. I've never tried to take it supplementally before, but the people I know who do/have sing its praises. I'm truly to the point where I'm considering trying it. I've always had trouble falling asleep as long as I can remember. It's getting pretty old.

Yes and no.

If you suffer from insomnia due to a hormonal imbalance brought upon by jet lag, staying awake for stupid reasons and getting jet lag without ever entering a plane, yes.

Otherwise no. In fact, it is a bad idea as a long term strategy as you will find yourself screwing around with serotonin levels and the like.

People who give it to their kids as a natural sleeping aid should be tried in court.

Google around.

The old sleep hygiene methods will eradicate the worst insomnia. I suffered under it greatly and still do at times (I've gone up to about a week without much more than thirty minutes of sleep and months on end averaging about two hours a night and that was before the cocaine). But now I know that I am the primary cause of my insomnia when I experience it.
