    It's a hard topic to discuss and trying to be PC about it makes it even harder.

    The other fact that it's a mix bag of ideologies doesn't help. The only common denominator seems to be religion and regardless how I feel about that particular topic and how much I dislike it, things like this are more than just about religion and I know that.

    Saying that however, making it a religious thing is what brings people to it. Which is the troubling and difficult part of the whole thing. There's a righteousness in it which is scary.

    I can and wish it was so... it wouldn't be prefect but it would be better.

    I agree it would be better without religion, 100%. Although most of religious people aren't that bad but extremists are the problem. But hey, without religion there wouldn't be any extremists either :)

    You guys are gonna think of me as a total ******* for writing this, but i hope at least someone will understand.

    I'm a bit curious how media (guess which TV stations i'm reffering to) seem to give all the atention only to the **** that has happened in Europe/US. These attacks were more than frequent in Turkey in the last few weeks, not to mention Iraq or African countries such as Nigeria and Kenya. No one gives a ****. That's what pisses me off. If it was up to me, i wouldn't even inform about any of these craps, that's just advertising suck people and giving them credits for their sick actions. Don't you get it, that's why they do it.

    I hate when someone is tryin to be PC.
    Everything you say then is not you, not your opinion, but an attempt for someone not to dislike you too much. And well i just don't want to spend my life trying not to upset someone by telling the truth.

    Folks who did it = muslims. Deal with it. Islam is in huge problems because of these unedicated, barbaric, attention-seekers. Spiritual leaders weren't doing their job, parents were bad parents and well, then **** happens.

    So some dude, an 'expert', said on live TV that this attack and the ones in France were 'legal respond from IS to those countries that had any kind of military actions on their soil'.

    I don't believe its religion. I like to believe its people who want to impose their ideology's and beliefs onto people. Take for example Buddhism, or Taoism, they do their own thing and don't force it upon anyone . Extremists aren't just limited to religion. Anyone can be an extremist. Just saying

    Buddhism is a 'recruiting" religion. Though some people don't see it as a religion. For some reason

    Also Karma is a vile idea.

    So dad's LG Optimus L3 broke down, screen isn't responsive so it is useless. So we ordered LG Leon for him, processor is better than in mine and it has LTE so it's fine for him.

    That I didn't know :) I was trying to imply that I don't see people who follow their beliefs killing people in the name of some deity.

    I think those people who are suicide bombers are doing it because a religion. They were brainwashed that people living in Belgium are guilty of conditions they live in.

    If it was up to religion then you could expect me to blow myself up?
    I agree with the other part - yes, they were brainwashed. It's not really hard to brainwash someone who's been trapped in total catastrophe for more than 4 years.

    I'm looking forward to playing with the G5 in stores. As much as i like the feel of the G4, if i were buying today and had the cash, i may have gone for the G5 in silver and paired it with my Moto 360, which is now with the titanium-silver look.

    I still question the modules - not that they're a bad idea but has a Gen one setup in skeptical - and frankly i don't think it'll sell...the G4 sold OK last year as good as it was. Still, the G5 is interesting enough to me where perhaps if i was in a different place I'd take a flyer on it.

    Maybe i have a thing for metal but I'd also try a M9 as a backup to the G5 under that scenario. I won't do that now because i have a Windows M8 that fills my HTC + Windows itch and my Maxx isn't going anywhere.

    Still, i think the M9 was good enough - not as bad as they made it out to be.

    Android is truly an ugly OS. I got my tablet and decided to mess with it. I tried that zenui launcher. It's actually not bad and managed to make an otherwise crappy OS look less vomit inducing.

    And I made it as Microsoft as possible.

    I'll put it this way.

    Why is your friend's opinion about religion and his mocking of it bad? Why doesn't religion, all regions, deserve ridicule?

    What makes religion so special? That it shouldn't be subjected to questioning and pointing out it's absurdities?

    You know why? Because we protect it, even those of us who don't believe. To do any of those things I've suggested seems wrong and tends to offend. Our societies go out of their way to protect religion and have brainwashed all of us into believing it's wrong to think badly of it.

    I personally, can't respect any of it.

    It is a virus of the mind.

    "Good people do good things, bad people do bad things, for good people to do bad things that takes religion."

    The question is why wouldn't you? If you honestly believed you were right and they were wrong in your eyes?

    That's what righteousness is.

    Also most holy books tell you to do just that...

    Just because we live in a society that has somewhat outgrown this type of thinking doesn't mean religion isn't a bad thing.

    You mean knock off launchers? I'm better off sticking with crap droid usual look. Home screen launchers for Windows 10 are horrible on Android.

    I dislike launchers anyway. They take up space and ram

    Totally understand your point about launchers.

    If you are interested there is this - https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...r.wp.ten&hl=en

    It's actually not that bad. It's not W10 but it's decent.

    Personally I have no issues with Android's interface but then I'm a 'utility' type person. I can care less about live tiles or what things look like. I just want the ability to do what I want. That's more important to me than looks. That's why Android suits me currently.
