//Have you ever had a really bad doctor experience?//
A few years ago I began to be in tremendous, incapacitating pain. Every movement I made was followed and hour or so later by a pain similar to a broken bone, in whatever joint/muscle I used. I noticed that when I stopped taking this one medicine I had been talking for months, the problem would clear up.
So I went to my doctor's office and the nurse practitioner saw me. I explained the issue and she smiled and said that it was just a flew. This NP was a middle-aged mother, and I believe she was like, "men don't know real pain". I vividly remember being bedridden and thinking that if this was to continue, I would be much better off dead. I was pissed off, but I took her advice and of course, in a few days the terrible pain returned. So I immediately stopped taking the meds (again) and called the doctor's office back. This time I spoke with my PCP and told him there's no way in hell I'm going to start taking that medicine again.
Funny thing is, years later I returned to using those meds and I have never experienced the problem again. I have no idea what caused the severe reaction.
People talk loudly about the constant change taking place in the world. People often remark that change is the only constant. Change is alright. "But are we changing for the better? " is a million dollar question.
It isn't a straight line in either direction. In general though, I believe the percentage of people suffering is much less today than it was even 100 years ago. Going back further than that, it just gets worse and worse.
Will things continue to get better? I certainly hope so, but I fear the worst.
If you were under 13 in the 90s but are old enough to remember 9/11 you're a millenial, if you aren't old enough to remember 9/11 you're in generation z
If you remember all that stuff plus sputnik, you're likely a Baby Boomer and believe the X's, Z's and millenials are full of shit.
Stop your calls, we have a winner!

An Incredible Dog? *** A guy spots a sign outside a house that reads “Talking Dog for Sale.” Intrigued, he walks in. “So what have you done with your life?” he asks the dog. “I've led a very full life,” says the dog. “I lived in the Alps rescuing avalanche victims. Then I served my country in Iraq. And now I spend my days reading to the residents of a retirement home.” The guy is flabbergasted. He asks the dog’s owner, “Why on earth would you want to get rid of an incredible dog like that?” The owner says, “Because he’s a liar! He never did any of that!” *** Link: http://www.laughfactory.com/jokes/clean-jokes/23
Post a song whose title-but not lyrics-are in a language other than English.
Clearly I was bored if I took 1/2 hour out of my life to watch the Bachelor last night. Drama, Drama, Drama between the women, and this guy is making out with 30 women on the show ... Should he have **** with all 30 women? I mean, doesn't he have to test drive them before picking the one? ... BTW ... Dumbest show I've seen so far ... I want my 1/2 hour back!!
Yup, makes Big Brother look really good.
I'm not a big fan of reality TV shows. The people on those shows all seem so shallow to me.
The world is real but man has become virtual
Man relies more and more on a virtual reality manifested in glowing rectangles.
Dumbest show ever
Tolerance is the last virtue of a depraved society.
According to the quote, tolerance isn't depraved, it's a virtue, the last virtue of a depraved society.
I don't think too many people supported Trump because they were under the impression he's perfect, he was just better than the alternative.
As an atheist, what gives you a moral high ground from which to judge others? There is no moral code of atheism, the only defining feature of it is your rejection of God and by extension, His rules, aka morality.
Furthermore, atheist governments have killed about 100 million people in the last century alone, many of whom were killed for their religion, so your concerns about the separation of church and state ring a little hollow to me.
Maze, would you agree that, by suggesting that tolerance is the last virtue of a society only identified as depraved, the quote is saying it tolerance is a very bad thing? Even an immoral thing?
I agree. Many of the people who supported Trump knew he was far from perfect. That's my point. Hilary is pro-choice and I understand why some people would never vote for her. She wasn't the only alternative though. I didn't vote for either Trump nor Hilary. So in my view, many of those who voted for Trump chose to overlook all of his obvious shortcoming.
I assume vast majority of the people who voted for Trump did so because they felt it was the right thing to do, that it was consistent with their religious values. Knowing the type of human being Trump is, and the fact these same folks rationalize their support him of, and also agree with someone who suggest tolerance is a bad thing.. to me that's frightening.
I never claimed to have a moral high ground. I simply claim though that those who support the president are no more moral than I. The suggestion in the quote is offensive to me.
My home was broken into yesterday while I was working.
Well I agree somewhat. The parent was a criminal to bring themselves and their children into USA illegally. can you say UNFIT PARENT? Small children should go into foster care like all criminal offspring. Hopefully to learn the right way to conduct themselves. Sadly the kid will grow and import the parent into our country somehow. That family inlet should be closed.
I think we are pretty much in agreement. I can't judge someone for bringing their children into the U.S. illegally without knowing about his situation. If the safety of my family depended on my doing something illegal, I'm fairly certain I would be willing to do it.

So, what have I missed?
Strikes and gutters. Ups and Downs.
Gerber Vs Leatherman
Never owned a Gerber. I've owned two Leatherman's, the first I lost and subsequently ran over with my riding lawnmower, so I got a new one. This one has a nasty habit of pinching my skin when I close it.
Linux vs Mac vs windows
I've mostly used Windows. We now have Windows 10 on most of the PCs/laptops at home, with a Windows 7 laptop floating around somewhere.
I'm sure Macs are awesome, but they cost too much.
This weekend I was saddened to discover that I missed out on what should have truly been my life's calling. I feel like it's too late for me to become a Crisco Cop.
I'm sure this saved countless lives.
And prevented the thinning of the gene pool.

Quiz: What Kind Of Water Represents Your Happiness?
Your happiness is much like a waterfall and when it rains, it pours. When you are happy you can't help but feel a huge rush and gush of emotion that overpowers you like a surging waterfall. You might feel happy and high for days on end until the water runs out from the river stream.
Would you rather relax by reading a new book or by re-reading a well loved book?
All things being equal, the new book. However, if I don't like the new book I'll stop reading.. and then perhaps wish I had re-read some other book I remember liking.
When you are feeling down sad or angry what do you use to soothe the savage beast?
Music (with or without the cannabis).
Geez.. at first I thought your house was actually broken into yesterday. I would hate for that to happen to you.
I expect juveniles would receive different treatment from the courts. However, does our legal system actually deem a parent innocent based solely on the fact that his/her children would not have a parent around? As sad as is it would be for any child to not have a parent(s) to provide for him, keep him safe, etc.., it would be ridiculous to give a parent a get-out-of-jail free card because of that. And it should go without saying, but obviously this father was doing none of that anyway.
As an atheist, I hope people can understand my uneasiness when a popular Evangelical broadcaster suggests tolerance is depraved. Atheists are always one of the first groups persecuted theocracies. This is why the separation of Church and State is so important.
I hate to make generalizations like this, but don't most Evangelicals (like Mr. Kennedy) support the current present, a man who has blatantly, proudly violated several of the 10 commandments? I can't even imagine how any of his supporters can convince themselves that they have a moral high ground from which to judge others. Clearly many of them do not.
