Forum Rules (Everyone Must Read!!!)

1] What you CAN NOT post.

You agree, through your use of this service, that you will not use this forum to post any material which is:
- abusive
- vulgar
- hateful
- harassing
- personal attacks
- obscene

You also may not:
- post images that are too large (max is 500*500px)
- post any copyrighted material unless the copyright is owned by you or cited properly.
- post in UPPER CASE, which is considered yelling
- post messages which insult the Armenians, Armenian culture, traditions, etc
- post racist or other intentionally insensitive material that insults or attacks another culture (including Turks)

The Ankap thread is excluded from the strict rules because that place is more relaxed and you can vent and engage in light insults and humor. Notice it's not a blank ticket, but just a place to vent. If you go into the Ankap thread, you enter at your own risk of being clowned on.
What you PROBABLY SHOULD NOT post...
Do not post information that you will regret putting out in public. This site comes up on Google, is cached, and all of that, so be aware of that as you post. Do not ask the staff to go through and delete things that you regret making available on the web for all to see because we will not do it. Think before you post!

2] Use descriptive subject lines & research your post. This means use the SEARCH.

This reduces the chances of double-posting and it also makes it easier for people to see what they do/don't want to read. Using the search function will identify existing threads on the topic so we do not have multiple threads on the same topic.

3] Keep the focus.

Each forum has a focus on a certain topic. Questions outside the scope of a certain forum will either be moved to the appropriate forum, closed, or simply be deleted. Please post your topic in the most appropriate forum. Users that keep doing this will be warned, then banned.

4] Behave as you would in a public location.

This forum is no different than a public place. Behave yourself and act like a decent human being (i.e. be respectful). If you're unable to do so, you're not welcome here and will be made to leave.

5] Respect the authority of moderators/admins.

Public discussions of moderator/admin actions are not allowed on the forum. It is also prohibited to protest moderator actions in titles, avatars, and signatures. If you don't like something that a moderator did, PM or email the moderator and try your best to resolve the problem or difference in private.

6] Promotion of sites or products is not permitted.

Advertisements are not allowed in this venue. No blatant advertising or solicitations of or for business is prohibited.
This includes, but not limited to, personal resumes and links to products or
services with which the poster is affiliated, whether or not a fee is charged
for the product or service. Spamming, in which a user posts the same message repeatedly, is also prohibited.

7] We retain the right to remove any posts and/or Members for any reason, without prior notice.


Members are welcome to read posts and though we encourage your active participation in the forum, it is not required. If you do participate by posting, however, we expect that on the whole you contribute something to the forum. This means that the bulk of your posts should not be in "fun" threads (e.g. Ankap, Keep & Kill, This or That, etc.). Further, while occasionally it is appropriate to simply voice your agreement or approval, not all of your posts should be of this variety: "LOL Member213!" "I agree."
If it is evident that a member is simply posting for the sake of posting, they will be removed.

8] These Rules & Guidelines may be amended at any time. (last update September 17, 2009)

If you believe an individual is repeatedly breaking the rules, please report to admin/moderator.

  • Why is life worth living?

    "Why is life worth living? That’s a very good question. Well, there are certain things, I guess, that make it worthwhile. Uh, like what? Okay, um, for me, uh, ooh, I would say… what, Groucho Marx, to name one thing… and Willie Mays, the second movement of the Jupiter Symphony, and… Louis Armstrong’s recording of Potato Head Blues… Swedish movies, naturally… Sentimental Education by Flaubert, Marlon Brando, Frank Sinatra… those incredible apples and pears by Cezanne, the crabs at Sam Wo’s... Tracy’s face…” -- Isaac Davis in Manhattan (1978)

    Now, I want everybody to tell me why they think life is worth living. Like Woody Allen, I want some unique answers specific to you, besides your "family" or "significant other."

    I think this could potentially be a very touching thread.

    Life is a vacation from whatever we were before we were conceived and everything we will be after we're dead. If you think about it, 99.9999999999999% of the time, we don't exist as living human beings, might as well profit from this unique experience.

      This wasn't meant to be some sort of existential thread, despite the thread title.

      It's meant for everybody to share what they love about their life. In the case of Woody Allen in Manhattan, he shares experiences unique to him. So, what's special in your life? The point here is to have people share specific things they admire, instead of mentioning their career, family, or loved one.

        Life is a huge potential,in matter of fact the stakes is so high that u confuse the real goal of it,can we make it to eternity from nothing?
        Maybe the reality is that i have to stay alive so my genes can pass to eternity and some how in far future they will bring me back in life,cause i will exist in the genes of my future kids.
        Here make a movie about my fantasy..

          For me is Freedom of Flight.......anybody that doesn’t believe that life is not worth living can come flying with me and afterwards they will appreciate being alive like they never imagined before.

            Wow. Did any of you guys bother reading the rest of the post? This is not a philosophical question. I wanted simple answers about what you enjoy in your life - art, music, theater, film, food, etc.

            Wow. Wow. Wow.

                You're an idiot. I don't know the answer.

                I was hoping for answers like the one above, such as "...the second movement of the Jupiter Symphony, Louis Armstrong’s recording of Potato Head Blues, Swedish movies, naturally…"

                  What I enjoy in life, is life itself that I'm alive I have a job family & friends
                  as long as all the people in my life are healthy & happy what else can I (or) anyone ask for.
