    Normally, I stay away from eating anything too "taboo", I guess mostly due to habit and culture, not sure what I would do in a survival situation though. I've read of a case of cannibalism that...

    As far as I know, in the past a girl was considered a woman as soon as she had her menarche (first menstrual cycle). This meant she was able to procreate. It was an important right of passage. Also,...

    I'm not sure if this is still actual, however I've recently witnessed someone go through a similar situation and it was not pretty. The best and wisest thing someone in this situation can do is put...

    Me neither... As someone who has experienced pregnancy and felt my babies grow inside my womb, this is extremely baffling. Not to mention upsetting. Sometimes I find it hard to believe that we have...

    Agreed. I am not certain if there is anything after death but the only thing that is certain is that we live on through our children/genes.

    I voted "no". While I personally find prostitution to be morally questionable, I normally am not in favor of bans as long as consenting adults are involved. Unfortunately prostitution often involves...

    I've always found the case of Björk to be an interesting one. As far as I could find, there were no known non-European ancestors in her family line.

    I've actually been under the impression that some people tend to leave their parents nest much later these days, particularly in certain countries. However it seems to be the other way around, it's...
  10. "Naturalized" Germanics or Loss of Germanic Status

    The blood vs. culture thread made me wonder about this topic. In America, as well as other countries, one can become a naturalized citizen. While this can be controversial and many people are opposed...

    I believe that both are important and while generally blood is a must, there may be some cases where culture makes the difference. For example, in another thread I saw the mention of a half German...

    It depends on the cut, length and face type. Really short hair like pixie cuts might not work for everyone. However, bobs can still look feminine and suit a lot of faces. For example I think this...
