I will live in Wyoming someday, it is decided!

So your are not planning return to Norway?

Not long term, no. Just my yearly visits for family. Now that I am getting married, I have to think about my spouses needs, and she really would go through a tough time there. Wyoming is just far enough from where we are to make a new start, but close enough for her to see her family, and for her to still accustomed to her surroundings.

Plus, Wyoming is beautiful, and I can have the horse farm I've always wanted there, and have my mountains. There's a university in Laramie, WY I can teach at after Grad School. Plus, there are tons of Scandinavians there, so I can still get my food!  Cheesy

Granted, this is all if football doesn't pan-out first (I'm actually in France right now on trial with PSG), which could take me all over the world, but either way after I retire I will be Wyoming-bound!

I'm so sick I'm barely lucid. Anything I may have posted in the last 24 hours should be taken in that light.

I don't know how but somehow you made me sick.  I am semi-ok now, but I stayed home from work yesterday and even had to cancel a date.  I slept the vast majority of the last 30 hours or so, waking up at least once per hour.  I at one can of soup.  I still feel weak, but the fever broke last night at 2 am.

I'm sorry. That sounds exactly like my sickness itinerary. I probably coughed on this thread or something. Feel better!

Thank you!  I started feeling better yesterday.  It was a quick run thing.  The worst part was, since I slept so much the day before, last night I could only sleep two hours last night!

Honestly, you really have my sympathy.  One day of that was more than I'd wish on anyone.  If you ever have a crappy time like that again I live to far to give you any comfort, like 7up or chicken soup, but I would be more than willing to refrain from saying 'postmodern' in that time. 


Not that I typically say 'postmodern', but I'd be more than careful not to slip out and say it, as out of character as it may otherwise be.

Tell me about it! The sickness passed quickly but my sleep schedule was wrecked for days- which is really saying something, because it was not great to begin with. Insomnia is my middle name.

Exactly, meatcakes, krumkake, sodd,grovbrød and butter, the meatballs, cod and potatoes, wienerbrød, etc.  You can't find much of the cuisine here in Louisiana (there is only one Swedish restaurant here, which serves some Norwegian dishes). But there are so many Scandinavian and German descendants there, they have SEVERAL restaurants in the relatively small population that have our types of food.

Because it is. By our very nature we are not monogomous. Men were biologically designed to have several female partners. Hence why we can orgasm like every ten minutes whereas it takes nine months for one woman to have a child.
[Trigger Warning: This post contains Theory of Biological Evolution]

James,

Let us first examine the closest living genetic relative of the Homo sapiens, the Chimpanzee, because I told us to.

Chimpanzee males are much larger and stronger than Chimpanzee females. Chimpanzee males develop crests as a sign of dominance. Chimpanzee females express visible signs of ovulation. The Chimpanzee males fight over ovulating females and the stronger one gets the female. This results in many "polygamous" situations.

Now, let us examine the homo sapiens:

Homo sapiens males are not, comparatively, much larger or stronger than Homo sapiens females. They do not develop crests as a sign of dominance. The females do not express visible signs of ovulation; human males, therefore cannot fight over ovulating females.

Why did homo sapiens evolve this way, and what does it say about their 'natural' sexual practices?

[Trigger warning: Investigation in progress among biological anthropologists]

Recent discoveries have overturned the idea that hominids evolved to walk on two legs in order to walk and see across distances over savannah land. One of the oldest bipedal hominids walked on two legs in the forest. Because you can carry more food that way. Who is carrying food? The males. Why? To feed the female and her children.

Chimpanzee males ensure that they have the largest possibility of being the father of as many children as possible by mating with as many ovulating females as possible. But a hominid male invests a lot of time an energy in feeding his children in order to insure their survival. What stops a stronger male from simply impregnating his female and making the providing male a cuckold while he's not around?

Because hominid women don't show visible signs of ovulation, other males do not know when the female is fertile. So they don't know if mating with her will produce offspring from that mating or not. But this still leaves a problem: What makes the providing male more likely to impregnate the female on random chance than another male who mates with her?

Hormonal Pair Bonding, that's what.

Studies in homo sapiens have shown that pair-bonded partners have linked hormone cycles. Male testosterone peaks when female fertility peaks. This ensures that the pair-bonded, providing male has the greatest chance of impregnating his female and providing for his own children.

So, in short, the so-called "default" mating behavior of the hominid is serial monogamy with occasional straying. Interesting; that's just what you see today.

It's you I love and not another
And I know our love will last forever
You I love and not another
And I know we'll always be together
Some have one love, two and three love
Four and five and six love
But I believe in one love
I believe in one love

Some don't feel secure unless they have a woman on each arm
They have to play the field, prove they have charm
They say don't lay your eggs in 1 basket
If the basket should fall all the eggs'll be broken

But I believe in one love
I believe in one love
Oh girl I believe in one love
I believe in one love

Oh girl it's not the everyday you find the woman of your dreams
Who will always be there no matter how bad things seem
Ever so faithful ever so sure
No man could ever ask for more

I believe in 1 love
I believe in one love, oh girl
I believe in one love
I believe, girl, oh yeah
In one love, in one love
In one love, in one love

I do, I do, I do
In one love
I do
In one love
I believe in one love, in one love.

Coincidence?

I think not.

I recall reading a book about Nihilism and/or Existentialism which proposed an idea that Nihilism and/or Existentialism is a sort of fuel for much of the 20th century art but I have forgot both author and the title of the book in question. Annoying.

Also, I'd like to attend a mass with Bach's music and full-blown orchestra.

It really is amazing what you can do with a can of Chicken breast, some blue cheese, a spoonful of mayo, a spritz of balsamic vinaigrette, and a pinch of salt. Mmm... mmm... mmm... Tasty Smiley

There's a bog fire burning about eight miles from where I live that I could smell quite strongly this morning about 5 a.m. when delivering my papers. The wind must have shifted as it's not noticeable now (approx. 11 a.m.).

I know I'm posting two in a row but this fire is going on right now just two blocks north of my home. Fortunately, the wind is blowing the heavy smoke away from my house, though there have been evacuations.

Well, this morning shortly before six o'clock when I was delivering my newspapers I was able to walk right up to building in question. There were lots of emergency vehicles around, but there was only one hose still pouring water into the building. I talked to a couple of firemen - very brief conversations - they were exhausted after having been there overnight - meaning probably twelve or more hours. Several of my customers were obviously not at home (no usual lights or cars around), but I left them the paper for their return  Smiley. My street is still the closest one to which you are allowed to drive in - it's currently about 10:40 a.m. (They've been letting residents drive out.) The smell of smoke this morning between 5 and 6 was very strong, but has mostly dissipated.

We have had a string of suspicious fires in the city in vacant buildings that are under renovation over the past few months.

Thanks for asking.

Reading through a different thread here, it hit me that it must be a distinctly North-Western European/American Protestant phenomenon when a married man feels he has to "provide spiritually for his family", To me it just sounds funny, but also suffocating in a way. I never heard people of other backgrounds speak like that, bu I still might be wrong.

I wouldn't be bragging about a three-figure salary; hobos usually make at least four-figures.

It's actually five-figures, but still not as much as I'm worth. *sigh* Soon, very soon I will be making the Six-Figure salary I turned down previously.  Smiley
