Ethics or Morals?

What’s the difference between an ethical man and a moral one? An ethical man knows what he does is wrong, a moral man won’t do it.

Two hands
While there is love...
Most topics of discussions that arise in everyday life usually come down to ethical or moral issues inherent almost in every matter.
One of such topics is ‘gay marriages’ and it was brought up by a gay couple in a conversation about the concept of family. Although we all looked at the question from different standpoints, opinions mainly flowed along these lines:

Any people living together can be considered a family, never mind the nature of their relationships (for those who read the Bible, remember what Jesus said something along the lines of 'my family are those who follow my word... rather than my brothers and sisters' (sorry, can't quote the exact passage) and therefore should enjoy the same legal rights as any official union.
Probably, we should redefine what constitutes a family.

The paths we choose.
Is joining up a good choice?

“War is the statesman’s game, the priest’s delight, the lawyer’s jest, the hired assassin’s trade.” — (Shelly)
Admiral retirement
The tinsel and glamour of Army
 The other day I got into a conversation with two guys who intended to join up, but were now having second thoughts they shared with the others hoping to resolve their doubts. An animated discussion followed that led us to agree on many points. Here is the gist of it in case someone is facing the same dilemma and trying to get a different view.

You’d better measure the depth, before plunging into the water; otherwise you are in for a nasty surprise.
Mind that once you are in the army you could go to war and now ask yourself a question, are you ready for it?

Image and beauty.
Susan Boyle — the beauty of talent.

Susan Boyle makeover.

First of all, why it's so common for a woman to be called ugly and get the shaft just because she doesn’t meet more than questionable canons of modern beauty, imposed by fashion designers and publicity industry and widely accepted by people without any criteria of their own?
Why aren’t stick insect models with squiggly limbs, protruding masculine shoulders and shapeless trunks considered ugly? Just because they are long, lanky (rather than tall) and therefore are convenient for the designers as they only have to make one size clothes?
