What the heck? The thread got closed. I wanted to discuss the idea that irrationality and such points towards God, rather than away from him. I wonder when the next atheist will come along...  Grin
He was already banned, maybe someone lifted the ban.
A technical error let him back in.

Seemed like he wanted to have some serious discussions, why not let him talk?

I've never had White Castle.  There are no stores around here, and I've never bought their frozen food.

Me neither. I once saw a show on the History Channel about it, though. Knowing the History Channel, it was probably all propaganda, anyways.

So, was White Castle brought by aliens or is it a branch of the Nazi Party?

I just got something in the mail from the Baptist church that Mr. Ismi and I had attended for a whopping two months (missing half of the services). This was the church that tried saving us through baked goods, fudge, tracts telling us that we were going to hell, and finally, personal visits. They found us at our new place!!!  Tongue

I'm willing to endure a fire-and-brimstone call if the fudge is any good.

Truth to be told, we couldn't eat it. I was so angry that night. (We got the fudge and tract in the same package. LOL.)

But they make a mean banana bread.

Azurestone, yes, they were Baptists. Independent Baptists. We have no idea what that actually meant...except that they aren't team players.

Last week when it was raining, the car in front of me decided to abruptly stop.  As the road was beautiful, smooth blacktop, I went in to a skid....thank God there was a shoulder onto which I veered and came to a stop.

That made me think that I might be in need of new tires before the snows begin to fly.

Today, I left work early to take my mom to her doctor's appointment.  Trucking down my street I stopped for the school bus and then when I resumed my drive I heard this grinding horrible noise.  I immediately stopped and took a peak under my car.  Sounded like I was dragging something.  First, I thought muffler came off, some pipe was dragging or I got a branch stuck under there.  Nope.  Nothing.

I got back in and began driving....and it was quiet.  Puzzled I asked if my mom heard it and she was sure it had just been a branch.

So, there I am driving TWENTY FIVE LONG MILES when I realize that when I press on the brake it makes a similar grinding noise.  When I finally get off the highway and stop at a light....I winced at the noise!  Oy!  It finally hit me.  It was my brakes!

It wasn't my tires that caused the skid....it was my failing brakes!  I slowly make the last mile to the doctor's office.  Thankfully mom's tests were all good...and an hour later I am ready to make the trek home.  Side streets or freeway?  Side streets - slower, safer, more braking.  Freeway - less braking, but, if you do need to brake, you better be able to.

I could have called AAA but, there's no way I would have been able to get my mom up in to the tow-truck cab.  It was the longest and scariest drive home, ever!

I don't know much about brakes....but, when I look through the tire to the brake, is it supposed to be so shiny that I can see my own reflection?? 

THANK YOU GOD for getting us home safely!  That's all I got to say!

It is times like these, when I most miss having a man around!

I know, not all men have "mechanical" aptitude, however, you guys just seem to tackle the project and give it a try.

My toilet still isn't fixed!  I am afraid of turning the "off" valve too much and busting it!  I always think of the worst case scenario and scare myself silly.  Everything in the house is old and it all scares me!  LOL!  My excuse for not fixing it tonight (and I have bought everything, got my bucket ready, towels, wrench, etc)...is that God forbid something does break, I don't have a car to run to Meijers and get parts! 

I love talking myself out of doing work!

Suppose you were sentenced to solitary confinement for life. You get to choose one song to listen to for the duration....as long as it is a Phil Collins solo tune. Which one do you pick?

So the Phil Collins thing is like torture, kind of a torment that makes you wish you could enjoy nothing but silence in solitary?  police

My favorite songs by him were while he was in Genesis, but really, the other guys in Genesis were empty carcasses by then, so can I just choose one of those songs?

I'm no fan of big government, and many of the government run institutions I can think of are pretty sorry indeed. But I have to give credit to the U.S. Postal Service. For whatever reason, the post office gets it done. Props to the Postal Service!

And everybody knows that Vamrat really looks like the saint in his picture, so that's a funny image.

I needed to stop buying makeup...yesterday. And I just cannot get enough. If I wasn't into buying anything else, it wouldn't be too much of an issue (well, it would still be an issue). But I am getting addicted to trying things. Ugh.

Does anyone here have a blog? Roll call.

I've been working on a project, but it deals with cosmetics, so I doubt that 99.9% of the board would be interested in reading it. LOL. But I do want to read OC.net users' blogs.

Does anyone here have a blog? Roll call.

I've been working on a project, but it deals with cosmetics, so I doubt that 99.9% of the board would be interested in reading it. LOL. But I do want to read OC.net users' blogs.


Mine is listed below all of my posts.

You know that pause you do when you're talking, and about to say something complicated or difficult? For instance, you say "Well..." or "Hmm..." and then pause for a few seconds gathering your thoughts?  I invented that pause.

TRIPOLI (Reuters) - Nicolas Sarkozy and David Cameron landed in Libya to a heroes' welcome on Wednesday, promising help for the new rulers French and British air power helped install and being told the favor may be repaid in deals on oil and reconstruction.


This is REUTERS. I think that sentence is so awful.

I read CNN and BBC and get really depressed with the typographical and grammatical errors...why don't I just apply for the editorial positions?!  Huh

What did Nicholas II say when he was deposed by the Bolsheviks? "I'm Tsarry."
It's quality corn like this that makes me keep coming back!

Allow me to be the nerd who misses the silliness and points out that Nicholas II was not deposed by the Bolsheviks.

Someone just stole my bank card number and tried to buy stuff, but the fraud hotline stopped them. Whew! I would just suggest getting the protection if your bank offers it. Yipes. I feel kind of icky now, but very grateful.

My fan just broke. What the...?  Just stopped dead. Now I only have a ceiling fan, which ain't getting it done. Is this some kind of cosmic joke? I go all summer with just a box fan and no air conditioning and I'm fine, and now it's september and I'm sweating and hot? Ha, ok, I'll laugh with you Ms. Universe. I feel your cruel boot on my neck. I give.

I have just finished purchasing very ugly headphones with a microphone, because evidently everything on the Tempe campus of ASU must shut down on Saturday's, no later than 4 P.M., except for the P.O.D. Market (a convenience store).
