looping Se Tu M'ami song like a million times. Is that her really singing or voiceover? Either way, that is an AMAZING SONG.

you're nuts! everyone you mentioned as a potential deadpool can't by any means come to the comedic zen that Ryan Renolds has.  That guy has PERFECT deadpool personality.  everyone else is bland.

 1) What science? I hate when people say "scientists say" without citing. that's like...school 101

2) young children do not "comprehend" everything.  They don't always understand Logic.  They understand stimulus.  That's why babies put everything along with bugs in their mouths, because their most sensitive sense is taste.  with that said: not all brains are wired the same.  Some can see another  child having an "ouchie" and say "oh no i'm not gonna do that", and some don't learn no matter what or how much they see until they try it out themselves.  

Simple example: As a kid i remember seeing my mom going "oh, ah ouch ouch" when she lifted a hot plate to move it somehwere.  that didn't register.  I wanted to touch the hot plate, my mom told me not to touch because it causes and ouchie. I still didn't listen and (while she kept a close eye on me) she let me go ahead and reach for the hot plate and...guess what? ouchie! Never did it again. at young developmental age, children understand only "ouchie" and "yippie". that's just how we are wired because we dont understand logic

3) the first trick to being a good person is to learn self restraint.  that's why, as kids, we get into lots of "oopsies"; because we have no concept of patience. we see, we want to act.  controlled discipline (NOT BEATING) creates the first building blocks of developing self restraint.  now SOMETIMES you can deliver the message non physically, but at times--because children don't have a clue about the meaning of term "consequence"--those blocks must be super imposed by the guardians.

final example: as a kid, I used to be fussy.  I wasn't hit all the time, but there were some times I was being too bratty and cried because I wanted to take away the toy that belonged to another kid who didn't want to share.  I got one good hit.  Next time, at the toy store, I was about to get fussy again and cry because I wanted more than one toy. My parents gave me ONE look...BAM. I remember, i never got hit again.

Beatings are ABSOLUTELY wrong.  that DOES cause psychological trauma.  The benefit of controlled punishment is that it creates the necessary barriers to control the basic carnal desires every human being is born with.  With that final thing said, my advise is do what my parents did.  After being disciplined, and after the tears dried, they sat down and told me why i got hit and why i deserved it.  Even if I didn't understand fully, at least I felt the sense of love that they did this to me not because they "hate me", but because of reasons I did not understand at the time to be wrong. The rule of thumb, NEVER HIT YOUR KIDS OUT OF ANGER

I dont get why the heck they insist on using British accents in a world set during the French Revolution.

Anyone that says that the French accent is "Hard to understand" is either lazy or a liar. I don't know a lick of French, but I've spoken to and had business conference given by French people with proper French accents and I understood them 100%.  

English isn't even my first language.  Arabic is my first language.  So if anyone should complain about accents and language and etc it should be any non-Latin-based or Anglo-based languages (Chinese, Arabic, Hindi, Farsi, etc...), and yet I personally know people from all of these mentioned places who took the trainings and seminars with me in France and had no problem.

Also, there were Americans there too and none of them complained.  So I call bonkers for anyone who says I don't understand accents.

BTW: Every AC game, including III and Black Flag, had accents applicable to the country of origin for the character in it.  Not to mention the main "real" character is AMERICAN (not British)! So this whole "animus knows how to talk to you" is also nonsense.  I call Hacks!

One word, Thieves! I went there with my insurance that should have covered the checkup and lenses, and still somehow managed to squeeze out of me 400 bucks extra. I have astigmatism, so my contacts had to be ordered in. They never consulted with me on which contacts i'd like, they just assumed and got me the ONE KIND THAT MY INSURANCE DOESN'T COVER. Not only that, they said they can give me a "discount" and that the remaining amount I would have to mail in for a mail-in rebate. when I collected my contacts and asked them about that rebate, they just blankly looked at me and said, "What rebate?" Also, they are pretty good at charging you for a "procedure" that's not covered in your insurance and sly-ly do it and charge you for it later on.

If you ever go there for oral surgery, DON'T! I had a Horrible experience. It felt more like signing a car lease going there than getting my teeth taken care of. They throw a bunch of trainees at you and you get very little time at all with the actual Dentist or Surgeon. The Surgeon they refer to works across the street from this place, so do yourself a favor and DON'T go there.

Beautiful and elegant. The night scenery and the pool view with the relaxing water falling off the side of the pool while the bin fire is crackling is really great. The complex is safe and clean. The staff are kind and helpful. And the apartment itself is very spacious and modern. My wife and I love the area very much.

For a place that is pretty fancy look, with good food, and what appears to be the manager actually going and checking up on customers, this place is a REAL great place to go to! The food there is great. It is Lebanese style and all your favorite lebanese dishes are served. My friends decided to play it safe and order the good dish, but I decided to go for something more adventurous and order fish. Now, I'm pretty picky when it comes to my fish. It is very hard to please me and I always find something wrong with it. But Le Kesh got it JUST RIGHT. It was great and you know what? The price was shockingly inexpensive for a fish like that! After dinner, you can hop to the back yard and have a Sheesha, Hooka, Ergeela, whatever you like to call it, and chill out with your friends there. During the night its pretty nice with the yard flames and sofas. The sheeshas were really good too, again, I have a standard when it comes to these things; and I was pleasantly satisfied. It is a bit of a way from central Oxford and all the attractions there, but it is VERY MUCH well worth a visit. Do check it out and thank me later.

Absolutely horrible! If I can give it 0 I would. 1- none of their sheesha taste right. I ordered a double apple and it tasted like liquorice. 2- their hummus was so runny and tasted so bland, it was un edible. I had to return it. 3- the place where they cook the food is right next to where they burn the coals. And they use a fan to blow on the coal, which is too close to where they make the food. 4- the music was so loud, you can barely hear your table talking. Long story short: these guys don't know anything about Arabic food nor know how to make a decent sheesha. Don't waste your money there, go to the better known places in town instead. They're worth the trip.

A nice little Malaysian place right in the oxford center. Would be a pretty neat place to stop by and eat at if you want something different yet inexpensive at the same time. The place is kinda small, and there is only one place where it can seat more than 3 people. It is kinda hidden so you have to look hard. It took me a couple of passes until i was able to track the place down. The food is pretty good. For the price you will feel pretty good about the meal you've eaten. Its hard for me to truly judge, because I dont know Malaysian cuisines that well, but from what I understand the Laksa is pretty good. Try it if you feel adventurous, you might actually like it.
