I love how the little ones crowd to follow me as I cense the house on Saturday evenings.

What I learned from social media comments about discovering new elements and putting them on the periodic table: religious people will probably refuse to let new textbooks include it because, you know, God; atheist people are so dumb how they reject God when periodic table not even full done?; there was a guy from area 51 who revealed element 113 but they laughed at him but now they 'found' element 113 omg the guvment lies and here come aliens!; these don't count as real elements, I make elements like these new ones all the time, so do my kids, so they can't be real; this proves that science changes which proves that science is useless!!!

Very educational.

What exactly are you reading? The manosphere/Red Pill stuff I've read have made some valid points but its ugly when it gets to manipulating other women for whatever desires they want.

A smattering here and there from a few forums.  I agree with your take, and that's the sad part.  Also a degree of despair underneath.

I know now that my personality type as 'neanderthal male' with a heavy dose of redneck is no longer cut out for most businesses or bureaucracies.  My last government employment was evidence enough for me that I'm politically incorrect even when I'm trying desperately not to be.  So, I relate to a lot of the complaints they have.

It is just so tragic to see so many people literally squeezed out of society.

The poetic part is to see 'Western' society breaking up this basic relationship of male and female for the sake of 'progress,' only to then to have to import warm bodies from parts of the world that are 'behind'.

Yeah I just picture everyone that posts on those kind of sites as sock-puppets of JamesR and have watched too much Fight Club.

Its just an outlet for white males to post about their frustrations at their lack of game and blame it on feminism.

I generally hate all sort of self-help improvement but there is some decent practical advice that can help boost one's confidence and self-worth. The problem is that gets twisted into validating oneself by using a whole host of women as sex objects for casual encounters (and then belittle them on the internet). That's not what its about.

Nothing wrong with ONS or casual flings, I've encouraged others here to experience it before they get serious about relationships and marriage. I guess fundamentally I do agree there are certain women worthy of marrying and others not so much.

Unfortunately, no (although I'm sure there are some religious textbooks that have attempted to revise the periodic table). The picture I shared is from the Landover Baptist Church website, which is a parody.

The other thing about manospherians is that many (if not most) of them believe that soon real women will become obsolete once sexbots go on the market.

Lol this reminds me of a chat once about a gay guy bragging about artificial wombs and test tube babies, that women should cease to exist. I wonder if he still has those views...

You've missed the latest episode. Apparently, a dog is better than a woman in everything except sex (which they're not interested in, that's what he said). The jury is still out on the sammich issue.

If one must delve into the manosphere, it's better to do it through We Hunted the Mammoth, in order to get all the ridiculousness tempered with humour, and avoid granting pageclicks to the red pill sewer.

I'm going to sign up for a trip to Romania.

Quote
While in Romania, you will serve with a strategic ministry partner and long term missionary, using your unique skills, gifts, and heart for ministry. This could look like:


•Kids Ministry: From VBS to after school programs and everywhere in between, you can share the love of Jesus through kids' favorite language: fun.
•Women's Ministry: You'll have the opportunity to share testimonies, sing, and pour into women in a local women's Bible study.
•Church Ministry: Encourage a local church through a sermon, worship, or sharing testimonies.
•Community Outreach: Through house visits and even giving food to low income families, you can give hope to those who need to hear it in the most important place in their lives: the home.
•Bible Distribution: You might even get to pass out copies of God's Word to those who have never read it.
•Teaching English: You'll make relationships with your students and teach them a valuable skill (a second language) at the same time!

http://www.adventures.org/trips/mission-trips.asp?locID=9&typeid=5


Awesome!  I can't wait to teach English, pass out infallible words of God, and "pour into women" (Seriously, what the hell?)!


Fwiw, when I was a Protestant I often heard it said that America was the largest missionary field in the world.

I saw this sign in more than one sect.
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

It seems they start selling it in the middle of November before Thanksgiving. Now I'll have to think of something else to do with the spiced rum tomorrow, ... perhaps flip.

:( Stopped at 2 stores tonight after Vigil, neither had any eggnog left. I was initially surprised when it was still available this late, but I have gotten at this time the past few years. It seems they start selling it in the middle of November before Thanksgiving. Now I'll have to think of something else to do with the spiced rum tomorrow, ... perhaps flip.

This is the last eggnog recipe you will ever need, so please don't ever bother with store bought eggnog again. 
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

RIP Pierre Boulez and Gilbert Kaplan. The old baton guard is almost all gone.


I own quite a few CD's conducted by Boulez.

He once mistakenly called Paul Simon "Al" at a party, and the rest was history.

Since I was a child, that song has made me a bit sad. If you can figure out why, I'll write you a check for $2000, for saving me decades of therapy.

This is the last mystery of life.

Thank you.

Narcissistic injury involving the song or even just as the song was playing.

I know you are not used to working for a living, so good first try.

I'll also note, this is the first post of mine you taken an interest in and only to attempt an ill fated insult.

But curlytalk, I've no more insight into this sadness of mine than before your post. That you might earn for your household, I'll give you more grist for your mill.

Unlike most of my pathology which is wrapped in the embrace of my mother, this sadness has always seem to involve a glance of my father. Clearly as a child, I didn't understand this song's allusions to middle age, I wasn't that insightful as a child. Nor was my father middle aged when I heard this anthem.

Not sure I've ever seen the video, so you can assume I only heard the song.

So curly try again.

One can have a primary narcissistic entanglement with the mother and still suffer a secondary with the father. In fact, the mother and the father usually represent separate stages in the development of the disease. The mother causes the initial trauma, and the sufferer turns to the father, usually near pubescence, as a savior, which, if the father rejects this or is not up to it, can lead to deeper trauma and further failure of normal development. Narcissism is a powerful disease and is one of the most common emotional illnesses at this time.

Working on something and came across this on Facebook. Thought I'd share:

Elder Paisios of Mount Athos likened people into two categories: flies and honey bees. He said that if you ask a fly, "Are there any flowers in the area?" it will say, "I don't know about flowers, but over there is a heap of rubbish and you can find all the filth you want;" and it will go on to list and describe every unclean thing. However, if you ask a honeybee, "Have you seen any garbage in this area?" it will reply, "Garbage? No, I have not seen any. This meadow is filled only with the most beautiful and fragrant flowers," and it will go on to name them all.
It's common knowledge that you secretly want to be born in early 17th century Russia.  As a serf or a royal, I know not.  Chances are serf.

Thank you, delicious. I used all spiced rum rather than the rum/brandy mix it called for, quite easy too. Christ is born!

Curly this wouldn't even pass muster in an undergraduate class at the academy.

You gotta fill in more gaps here. Freudian fortune cookies are a dime a dozen.
