If y'all keep us at an average of 703+ posts/day for the rest of October, this will be our first-ever 20,000+ post month.  It may be attainable (we've had a number of 750+ posting days in the last few months).

Please, someone, start a thread about how the Pope of Rome should be the head of the universal Church.  In addition to the other threads we already have about that (which should be bumped).  Those are popular.   

I'm not sure that we should attain the prize at all costs!

But if you just want to stir up annoying topics that have been discussed too much, why not re-open some discussions on pews and kneeling on Sunday in the Liturgy section? (Arimethea will love you for that!)

Honestly, I would've defaulted to being lazy, but then you said this:

Just won my first eBay auction. Now, if only the seller hurries a bit, I may have the goods before I go out of town.

I think my ratio for Buy It Now items is like 100:1

I rarely auction too.

Usually I forget even if its on my watch list.

Instead of sitting a mininum bid, I like to sneak in the last 30 seconds to bid.

Too many big sellers create fake accounts to bump up the auction price. So if you keep bidding days before its over, you'd prob spend more money dealing with those alt accts.

I note that someone resurrected the Nathaniel Kepner thread, that's always good for the spleen. (and many, many posts....) Kinda like the proverbial 'bad penny.'

During last ten years it's been maybe two times that I went to a barber. I'd like to cut my hair but I'm having a huuuge crisis over it. I've been long-haired for too long.

You've only seen people kidnap eachother's pets for food on OC.net? You really do live under a rock. Help yourself to a kitten and start cooking.

It's fairly easy and cheap as one doesn't really have to do anything for long hair. At least if we're talking about men, that is. But it would be fun to something else for a change. I can grow them back if I'm not satisfied.

But still. Shocked

I would NEVER kill, cook, and eat a kitten.  You must be a heathen to even suggest such barbarism!!!!  Now, a puppy...............I'll bet hecma925 might have some good recipes.  Well, maybe not.  I seem to recall he's a dog person ( Grin.  Or, perhaps you do. Grin Grin

I personally don't have any recipes for dog or cat, but as I have related in a nother thread, I strongly suspect that I have already eaten some feline and canine delicacies.  I didn't get sick and I ate it all, whatever it was.  When you think of the cultures that prepare dog/cat in their cuisine and the types of seasoning/preparations that are done, it makes sense.  Sunday roast cat with Yorkshire pudding or dog spaghetti doesn't sound appetizing.  But cat egg roll?  Szechuan dog?  I could go for that.  Lots of veggies, tasty sauces, some kimchi maybe (Right, J Michael? Grin); that can cover up any distinct feline/canine flavor that could have possibly been there.

I have prepared and eaten stewed squirrel.  It was ok.  Maybe an Asian-type preparation would have been more appetizing.

I personally don't have any recipes for dog or cat, but as I have related in a nother thread, I strongly suspect that I have already eaten some feline and canine delicacies.  I didn't get sick and I ate it all, whatever it was.  When you think of the cultures that prepare dog/cat in their cuisine and the types of seasoning/preparations that are done, it makes sense.  Sunday roast cat with Yorkshire pudding or dog spaghetti doesn't sound appetizing.  But cat egg roll?  Szechuan dog?  I could go for that.  Lots of veggies, tasty sauces, some kimchi maybe (Right, J Michael? Grin); that can cover up any distinct feline/canine flavor that could have possibly been there.

I have prepared and eaten stewed squirrel.  It was ok.  Maybe an Asian-type preparation would have been more appetizing.
I ate guinea pig when I was in Peru. It was not as good as I was hoping.  Sad

This is where I post my favorite last supper painting yet again:

I saw that piece of art in person.  Actually, I attended Mass at the Cathedral where it hangs.  I was also smacked by a guy with a stick for putting my hands in my pockets after Mass.  Apparently, they take that pretty seriously.

Having lived in the building trades for a while, it is an act punishable by getting hit with a blunt object.

Especially then, the whole point was not to have your hands in pockets when you slipped and fell. We actually did see a guy hit ice and crack his skull open. He was drunk and with hands deep into his pockets.

I knew this Orthodox priest who would positively rail at anyone in Church (usually males) with hands in their pockets.  He never went so far as to smack them, but his words and looks could do far more damage. Roll Eyes

Ughhhhhhh I hate that I gotta wait until Wednesday for my new work headphones. I forgot Guitar Center price matches amazon.com

I really hope these Sony's are all the hype. I never buy from large companies like them, but all studio musicians use em either for recording, tracking, mixing and mastering. The freq response is supposedly flat.

Has anyone ever told stories or something to someone and they think you are full of crap and no longer trust you, even if what you told them is the truth?

Or even if you made a "factual" mistake and meant something else, you lose credibility?

This happened today when explaining my situation a few years ago. Nobody believes I worked 10 hr's a week for basically scraps. Some dude actually calculated the money I was making and called me out on it. Like wth? How am I suposoed to know exactly from 5 years ago?

These situations are best rectified telling everyone that you are a former MMA fighter and then punch the guy who called you out in the throat.
