Those are mostly ties, not belts.

What do you need four to six ties or? I only have ONE tie and I don't even know where it is; it's lost somewhere in my bedroom.

I only have one too and it has santa claus on it.

Like Santa Claus, which I guess is why everyone from family to the local gangstas call me Santa and local children sometimes 'pop' round asking to see the Reindeer. Even the dog has a bell on his collar. Not keen on mince pies though!

What'd you visit a Mosque for? You couldn't pay me to enter into a house of worship for the religion that's responsible for the martyrdom and persecution of so many of us. That'd be like asking a Jew to visit an old concentration camp.

It was for a class, but it was overall a really great experience and my second visit to a mosque. I visited a Chabaud Center and saw the Dead Sea Scrolls exhibit that day too. Smiley

Pick a better analogy.  Jews do this all the time.  

Also, I bet you would not have a problem with visiting any number of Roman era temples, nor would you mind visiting some Aztec sites.  Both were monuments of those who martyred Christians in some way, shape, or form.

I know it's difficult for you, but please think before you type.

Ordinarily, Orthodox people have sobriety and nepsis. Therefore, they don't just smile at the drop of a hat like most Americans think is proper. So strangely is American culture skewed towards foolish grins and empty smiles, that it's happened on this site that there would be a picture of some mirthful Eastern Europeans, and they were thought to appear somber.

There's nothing unusual, bad, or undesirable about the way the people are looking in that Palm Sunday church pic. Haven't they been fasting for weeks, emaciating their flesh and depriving themselves of comforts and beauty sleep and keeping vigil? Well if not, they need to find better reasons to look depressed.

Regardless of their fasting habits, they're supposed to look like they haven't been fasting and even demonstrate some joy that the Lord has made his triumphant entrance into Jerusalem.  Six hours later, when the church is darkened and everything is in purple, then the attitudes of people can reflect the somber nature of Holy Week.

When I'm in church I always look the same as the people in the picture Wink Maybe someone who has spiritual experiences in the particular moment or just tries to focus on it, is not able to show it "outside", because it's so deep inside him/her and so intimate. That's just my reflection Wink


So, a bit more portion of my pictures. They're from an Orthodox demonastrion "For Serbian Kosovo" in Białystok, so I look a bit sad too and maybe not so, let's say, nice by appearance, but it's very symbolicall Wink

Congrats!!!

I'm also a little under 200, but my pant size is at the way it was when I was 180 pounds in high school.  It seems instead of BMI, waist to hip ration would be a better measure for future health care when dealing with weight issues.  For chronically heavy guys, we build muscle and bone mass, and thus increase our lowest healthy weight possible, making BMI a false measure of health for these individuals.

Congrats!!!

I'm also a little under 200, but my pant size is at the way it was when I was 180 pounds in high school.  It seems instead of BMI, waist to hip ration would be a better measure for future health care when dealing with weight issues.  For chronically heavy guys, we build muscle and bone mass, and thus increase our lowest healthy weight possible, making BMI a false measure of health for these individuals.

Thanks Smiley I'm 5'9"... my goal is to get down to 180, which I haven't been at since probably my junior year in high school. And I agree about the BMI thing, it may be accurate for some people, but it's definitely not for others. I've always had a "thicker" build, and the idea of being 168 lbs or less (what the BMI says I should be) is crazy talk.

Yes waist to hip ratio is a much better measure, but try explaining to any man born after 1960(?) in America where their waist is.

Oh and on the pant thing, men's pants have gone a bit of the way of vanity sizing and depending on cut, you can expect as large as a 2" variation within jeans even from the same maker.
