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!)

"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6

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

I'm still leaning toward lazy, but I'll have to think about it a bit more.

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.

The term planet earth is an innovation which has arisen in recent centuries with the error of heliocentrism.

If one wants to confess a pure doctrine of Orthodoxy, they should be careful not to refer to the earth as a planet, unlike the current Pope as well as Patriarch Kirill and Patriarch Bartholomew, who regularly speak in error when they refer to our planet earth.

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.'

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. :o

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 ( ;D.  Or, perhaps you do. ;D ;D

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? ;D); 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 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.

The term planet earth is an innovation which has arisen in recent centuries with the error of heliocentrism.

If one wants to confess a pure doctrine of Orthodoxy, they should be careful not to refer to the earth as a planet, unlike the current Pope as well as Patriarch Kirill and Patriarch Bartholomew, who regularly speak in error when they refer to our planet earth.

So the Last Supper was a barbecue.  Jesus is Southern.
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

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.

My hands were cold, they should cut a guy some slack.  :laugh:

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. ::)

Is it just me or is the "OrthoDOX motivATiOnal posT(H)E(O)rs" thread not very motivating lately?

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.

He did one decent song at least. More than most folks, so he should be happy.
