I think that you misunderstand that.  It is an award to those who are a bit smarter and more Orthodox than others.  If you are really good, you will even get a yellow one.

My back has not stopped hurting for over a month now. It makes it very difficult to sleep and work. Let's not even talk about doing prostrations! And to top it all off I lost my temp job because I'm taking anti-depression medicine to help me sleep at night due to my hurt back which caused me to oversleep and miss a day of work combined with all the other times I missed work due to the pain in my back being unbearable.

Oh, and I suffer from frequent migraines, and could possibly have PTSD and depression...

Oh, I've already gone to the doctor. Three different ones in fact. I need to call the VA back to set up an appointment for x-rays on my back so they can start to schedule me for physical therapy. I have a psychology appointment next week to see if I really am depressed or have PTSD. I have some leads on a new job, just waiting to hear back...

Oh, don't get me started on weasel words/corporate speak, mismatches of plural and singular in the same phrase or sentence, confusion over possessive and plural, and the use of woman/women as an adjective, such as "woman doctor", "woman engineer", etc. Peoples, the proper adjective is FEMALE. Woman is a NOUN. Got it?

And "eck cetera". ACK!! It's ET CETERA! Not to mention "would of" instead of "would have" ....  Angry Angry Angry

Going to a restaurant and being served morsels of food prettily-arranged but underwhelming in taste on plates the size of satellite dishes. Luckily this has only ever happened to me when I've been invited to such a place by others, usually work-related, so I don't need to pay.

Artistic dribbles of runny sauce (usually called jus) which are completely separated from the food the sauce is supposed to accompany, and in hopelessly inadequate quantity. The same goes for desserts which are surrounded by an empty space the width of Saturn's rings, beyond which are small dots or swirls of whatever sweet sauce was supposed to complement the dessert.

The cult of the celebrity chef. Those who dictate who may and may not cross the threshold of their establishment need to look up the etymology and meaning of the words minestrone, restaurant, and hospitality.

I'm always afraid the guy in the cube behind me will hear it, but I let 'er rip anyway. I guess that's better than when I worked in an actual office secluded somewhat from other people and would let loose a belch loud enough to rattle my office door.

It seems like every room mate I move in with ends up being completely oblivious to common sense in the house hold. Or maybe the German runs to deep in my family and I'm to order driven. I need order (might be the reason I love ROCOR  Cheesy), as Saint Paul's says "1Cor:14:40: Let all things be done decently and in order."

Things I dislike about room mates:
1) If you spill something on the counter...CLEAN IT UP!
2) Don't slam doors shut
3) If you take a shower, dry off IN the shower, or lay a towel down so you don't drip on the bathroom rug. Because I don't want to walk into the bathroom with my socks on and get them soaking wet!
4) If you are to lazy to take out the recycling, don't throw the recyclables in the garbage!
5) If you take something, put it back where it was
6) Don't burn food in every pan in the house
7) Hubert Booth invented the vacuum cleaner to use, not to look at
8 ) Unplug appliances with heating elements
9) When burning incense(normal stick ones) use something to catch the ashes
10) Don't turn the floor heater on and drape wires over it

Seriously, I swear I'm going to come home one day to a giant fire.

-Why the heck is it so difficult to get this guy to stop touching me inappropriately?  I've tried to be understanding and forgiving, but if he does it once more, I'm pressing charges.

-I try to be nice to everyone.  Why can't people just be nice back?  Can't you either be kind to me or leave me the hell alone?

-Why do small insects always die in my coffee during the day?

-Why isn't there a men's monastery closer to my home?

-Why do teachers at school have to fight over me and my time? 

-Why can't I just graduate and have a successful life and be an old man sitting on my porch watching the birds already?  Life is taking considerably longer than it aught to, as I'm already sick of everyone.

-Why did my mother and my grandmother have to hate each other?

-Why do all of my family have to be either in NJ or not talking to us?  All of my friends are having graduation parties, but I haven't got any family.

-Why can't I find clothes to wear when I go shopping?  My 7 shirts and two pairs of shoes are getting very old.

-Why can't my grandfather be alive now to help me figure my life out?

-Why does everyone have to judge me for being religious? 

-Why can't people just leave me alone to be as I am?  I don't bother anyone too much.  I just want to be who I want to be without everyone's judgement.

-Why can't Fr. Seraphim Rose just walk out of the icon and tell me how to deal with my feelings?

Ugh.  Life.

I don't know if this thread is a good idea on a Christian forum.

Just a thought.

I echo your thoughts.  St. Paul has some great advice for just such threads:

"[6] Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; [7] and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.  [8] Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things."

Philippians 4:6-8 NKJV

It's against the law to splash someone in the UK?

Yes.  And revenge *can* be sweet Grin!

These guys sure deserved it:

British Couple Drive-By Splashing Kids

"A woman is facing charges of 'careless and inconsiderate driving' after deliberately driving through a puddle at high speed to soak a group of people waiting at a bus stop. The charge carries a fine of up to £2,500."

Dear antisocial so-and-so,

Was it fun driving full tilt through that huge puddle and soaking me and the boy on the way to school?

I hope it was, because guess whose number plate is getting reported. Angry

I wonder how sweet?  Big fines?  Jail time?  Community service?

Points off the licence, for sure. I don't know how many, or if there are auxiliary sanctions for repeat offenders.

The particular road serves 4 schools (a preschool, two primaries and a secondary), so during drop-off and pick-up hours, speed limit is at 5mph.

Why does one have to be a master of satire to effectively participate in this forum?
Who ever said that? Huh

You did.  You were complimenting one member's "mastery of the art" where the art = satire.
But wouldn't you have to agree that it's a non sequitur to conclude from my compliment to Punch that one has to be a master of satire to participate effectively on this forum?

Huh Jesus spoke in parables, not in satire.
I think you're projecting, SolEX01.

Most complaints are resolved effectively via gentle use of projection.   Smiley
SolEX01, you don't have to be a master of non sequitur to participate effectively on this forum.

Which logical fallacy was I guilty of (in this thread) according to this website?

EDIT: I see that the final part of the statement (being a master of satire...) was unrelated to the first part of the statement (compliment for satire...).

Yes, as long as someone being upset that they got wet is sufficient evidence in court that the alleged driver was exceeding the speed limit.  In most jurisdictions in the US, phoning in such a report would be met with "oh that's nice.  We'll get right on it" as they chuckle hanging up the phone.

Driving over the speed limit in adverse conditions with pedestrians nearby can be considered reckless driving in many jurisdictions.

I would be happy to agree with you, but then both of us would be wrong.
