  1. So to bring this back a bit perhaps, there's a cool episode of the ted radio your podcast called believers and doubters. I think its worth listening to, and its free to download as a podcast on iTunes.

    Also, even as an atheist, I go to catholic school now. And while religion is definitely a part of the school, I found it to be the most accepting school that I've ever been in, with around 50% of the school being non-catholic.


  2. Okay some more ideas to increase activity:

    Special events, like holiday events, contests and the like. I have no programming skills but I'd be happy to help with the creative portion ^_^.

    More achievements...everyone loves achievements ;P! No, but 99% seriously, so many addictive games and whatnot have achievements b/c they themselves are somewhat addictive. Right now there is only the member title 'achievements', but I think there can be some more that can be added without challenging the core of what the place is about. Especially with the new ability to attribute solutions to a particular person, it shouldn't be too hard to add achievements associated with that: number of puzzles solved, etc. And adding achievements for puzzle makers too might be nice ;).

    I'm back for the next two minutes at least. My journey on brain den began when I was trying to learn how to think. But I'm eighteen now (I STARTED HERE NOT EVEN A TEENAGER AND NOW IM AN ADULT WHAT?!) and with websites like lumosity and fit brains, people can now exercise their brain without having to rely on other people for answers and questions. Its the idea of having a better brain without having to debate or argue with other people. This site doesn't promise results and the others do. And in a world where everyone wants to get a year and be the best, I don't think people see an intelligent community as enticing as something that promises to make you better, the improved you.

    I'm not sure how to present an argument of "we should" or "we shouldn't" do this or that. I think if we look at the sites that promise brain developments, we can see that they divide games into categories. They'll say how this game improved focus and that game improves memory and so on. If people can show that brain den can improve this or that section of the brain, we could attract those who seek to "improve their intelligence."


  3. **note: i didn't make this riddle up. I saw it, and i saw the answer and i liked it. :)

    A married leader and a single slave
    The toothless elder now gone to his grave
    The death for which the younger took the blame
    Committed by the one he could not name
    They've ten between them, ten that do not see
    Now name the leader and his enemy.

    It's a Harry Potter riddle

    This is relevant to the second book.

    The basilisk and Aragog (Hagrid's spider)



    Why?
    "Aragog married Mosag and now leads the spiders in the forest. The basilisk lived alone and worked for the heir of Slytherin.
    Aragog's still alive, but the basilisk was killed by Harry and lost a tooth in the process.
    Aragog was blamed for Myrtle's death and refused to tell Hagrid that it was really the basilisk.
    And Aragog has eight eyes, which have gone blind with old age, while the basilisk had two which were pecked out by Fawkes."

  4. Personally, i find it both dangerous and freeing. Trusting people on the internet is something that has never been a problem for me, although i would never meet up with someone alone and without knowing who they are.

    My name is Jenny. This is not an alias, and I'm perfectly fine with using my own name. I use it often. I trust a lot of people on the internet with my personal information. Im friends with a lot of denizens on fb.

    However, i dont think any of them know my address. They could, I'm sure, but I know who I friend. I make sure theres a life behind the profile.

    In the end, i believe in the right of it. But its a power that has to be wielded carefully. Trust wisely.

  8. Poor little Herbie. Since his birth, poor blind Herbie had never seen the light of day. One day at bedtime, his mother told him that the next day would be a very special one. If he prayed extra hard to Jesus, he'd be able to see when he woke up the next morning.

    Eagerly, Herbie crouched down on his knees beside his bed andput his hands together. For hours, he prayed and prayed to Jesus.

    The next morning Herbie's mother came into his room and gently woke him from his sleep.

    "Well Herbie, open your eyes and you'll know that Jesus answered your prayers."

    Little Herbie slowly opened his eyes, only to cry out, "Mother! Mother! I STILL CAN'T SEE!"

    "I know, dear," said his mother. "APRIL FOOL!"

    :(

  10. I used an instrumental and my own voice to make this; I know I'm not a good singer, but this gives an idea of how the song sounds. I also added onto the lyrics a bit to match it up to the real song. I didn't change puzzlegirl's lyrics, however.
