    Good grief… anyone else grow up where every summer, most boys had either shaved or buzzed hair? I think probably until I hit Junior High and started becoming ‘worried’ about what other people thought (yeah… grils. lol) I looked like most other boys. Short trim hair and buzzed when it was warm.

    There is a certain amount of truth to that, however it has become so commonplace to share your ‘moments’ (like we all used to show each other our pictures – just they were in books or envelopes) whether it be pictures or video or whatever… I think there has been such a huge shift in perception that it is not just about getting attention anymore.
    I started link hopping one day not long ago on Youtube just for kicks and came across dozens of people that had dozens or even hundreds of videos. Just a few subscribers and a few hits on each video. It was just their ‘video album’.
    It’s really weird. However, I didn’t grow up with it either. I dunno – just a thought.

    “We hope that this will serve as a lesson for other women,” a militant told her before she was killed. “You should be satisfied with the ruling decreed by Allah, and submit to Allah.”

    HEY! Feminazis! Where in the FU– are you at now?!?! Unbelievable! Ugh I can’t hardly read this crap anymore. Feminists that gripe, whine, and moan, and then never bat an eye about this are 100% full of it. You have zero credibility in my house. None.

    Still sucks though. We had a wooden block on the clutch pedal of the tractor so I had enough leverage for it, the brakes I could stand on fine… and I drove the old International tractor around in a circle at the molasses mill, cut hay, drove the farm truck all over the farm and sat on Dad’s lap and steered it into town – all starting from 6 years old. By the time I was 10 I was driving to the corner store with my Dad next to me.
    I’m forever grateful I got a good 10 year jump on most kids my age learning to handle moving machinery. It has saved my butt on so many occasions it’s not even funny.
    I also think if they want to reduce deaths in auto accidents, they need to come up with a new alternative to airbags. Get rid of them. They are killing and injuring more people than they are saving these days it seems like.
    The cars get smaller, lighter, cheaper made yet more expensive, and more dangerous to get in an accident in. Something has to give at some point.

    Either way, people either haven’t seen the movie or are just coming up with garbage. The movie clearly ‘spoke’ (showed? presented?) to the idea of Mr. Kyle’s issues. Aside from needing to condense everything into a movie time frame, it wasn’t bashful about showing his issues and that he was by no means a ‘perfect person’. Just a man that went to war, came back, and was screwed up for a time until he accepted that he really did have issues and accepted help and started helping others. It killed him in the end, but saved him first. So… kind of a tragic story all around and that is kind of what the whole thing is about. He was a war hero and all, but hey, he was human. Let’s not pi$$ all over they men and women coming back – how bout let’s help them instead?

    It *is* interesting that, regardless of how old you do/don’t think the fossils are… that we oncehad enormous animals and plants on the earth. Would love to be able to see it just for a minute!

    Me three… too young and dumb to write her back often enough. She liked writing and mailing our things until I could visit, I didn’t understand why she didn’t just want to talk on the phone more. I took it wrong. Doomahss.

    Beautiful, gentle Karen. I’m sorry. I truly hope everything has turned out wonderful for you.

    Ok I get it. For whatever reason it is fun for you and people like you to try to get a rile out of people by hopefully creating some sort of shock value or some other idiotic venue.

    I’m actually curious here – and none of you have ever addressed it… what is it about doing so that is so appealing to you? Even though it a small minority of people you are actually causing grief… what drives you?

    Does it make you feel good or something? Maybe make you feel smarter or witty or artistic perhaps? I used to feel sad for you and others like you, but I wonder if perhaps it is like people with Algolagnia or other disorder. The thought that you are causing others pain gives you some kind of pleasure.

    Thanks for any info and if you just don’t want to talk about it that’s fine.

    Later

    The most idiotic thing about the whole argument is… Vaccines only work for:
    - Known viruses from the past (both recent and distant)
    - Predictions of those viruses and variants that might happen (like influenza)
    - Short term benefits, and only if they get it right that year.
    – Yeah even the ‘long term’ vaccines like Chicken Pox, Small Pox, etc. have all WORN OFF and had to be completely revamped after we were all told it was a permanent fix.

    So my problem with it is hey… you want to use them, go right ahead. I’ll let my immune system deal with whatever comes my way and if it can’t deal with it, then I’ll hit the doctors office. I’ve had two flu-bugs from childhood to present, and several colds. That’s it.

    I’m sorry, but I think our over-protective, over Prell’ed, germaphobic society is generating stonger and more resistant bugs as time goes by. Maybe not. I’m no doctor… it sure seems that way and nobody in my family or my wife’s family or the friends I grew up with have had any major health problems related to catching bugs / diseases / etc. None of us were vaccinated for anything other than the FORCED injection in elementary school. I think that was for pox. I don’t remember if it was for small or chicken pox.

    Choice: It is slipping away faster and faster all the time. You lose your ability to chose and I think that will probably kill all of us a lot quicker than a lack of a few extra vaccinated kids.

    Oh good grief. I consider myself a religious person, but I don’t think God would banish someone’s soul for expressing their concern for themselves and others. However, that is just my opinion. :)

    Where did that come from? I don’t know much about Gates other than I have to fix his crap all day long every day, but Elon Musk hasn’t been some sort of stranger to charity or something. His projects like Tesla Motors, SpaceX, and up and coming projects like low orbit satellite internet ‘for all’ (affordable high speed mor along the lines of cable/dsl prices, unlimited without bandwidth restrictions, and even us in the boonies can use it.) aren’t anything to sneeze at.
    Although he did accept some big grants from the government for some of his projects… he actually delivered. Shaky ground for a while, but he nearly bankrupted himself making sure Tesla delivered. Now they’re stable and profitable.
    Wise? I don’t know… but how does someone discussing their *concerns* for the future of humanity have some kind of negative impact on their eternal souls? Or imply that they somehow don’t give a crap about them?
    Just seems presumptuous.

    An ‘armed insurance agency’ would be more apt to be flat-backed and in prison / dead compared to any ‘armed insurgency’ the way these people think. Nutso.

    None of the network traffic argument matters. What they want is to be able to monitor exactly what it is you are ‘doing’. Smart meters record statistics. Spikes, surges, outages, usage, etc.
    The current ‘top notch’ software being used with smart meters has been designed to recognize ‘signatures’:
    Your heat pump / central air kicks on… big surge with particular trail off patterns.
    Your refrigerator kicks on… same thing – smaller surge drain and level off.
    Dryer? Completely different kind of draw on the circuit. Some initial surge, but then constant, high current load.
    Basically they can ‘map out’ what you are doing in your house electrically speaking. Not just how much juice you are using each month, but how you are using that juice.

    It has a very important bearing on this story. The fact that millions of people have quit smoking thanks to e-cigs, and there haven’t been any medical issues related to them since their inception as of yet, would stand to reason that California ‘officials’ are acting without evidence when they state that e-cigs are a health hazard.
    They even admit flat out (only because they have to… because there have been so many studies done that haven’t come out the way any of them wanted) that “although there is still more research to be done on the immediate and long-term health effects”
    That has been their excuse since about 2007 when they first started selling in smoke shops in the USA. The first FDA results were found to be faulty, once re-tested the results were less than that of the readily available inhalers that everyone is perfectly fine with.
    However, after each study proves e-cigs to be less harmful than most every medical device, gum, and other alternative out there, the only argument left then is ‘well we need to do more studies.’ because surely to God we can get one of them to come out the way we need it to! lol
    Sheesh

  • [1] January 28, 2015 at 11:02pm

    Yeah this is just the same old crap that they still can’t prove… because it can’t be proven. The only health risks would be if you were insane and vaped non-stop all day long at the highest nicotene level you could find and end up with nicotine poisoning or something… no different than cigarettes in that scenario. If that is even possible.
    I kicked cigarettes in 2007 thanks to e-cigs. I still vape to this day, I just don’t need the nicotine any more. I like all the flavors there are available and just really enjoy a smooth vape while winding down. Oh yeah, unlike cigarettes, you can get ZERO mg juice. No nicotine. I’ve turned many friends and family onto e-cigs and they’ve all quit or switched because of it.
    I think it is not only the fact that they are losing out big time on taxes, but nobody can stand that a non-regulated, non-prescribed, non-liberal invented device is changing lives for the better.
    If some main stream ultra liberal had invented the things… it wouldn’t even be an issue. They would be ‘non-toxic’, ‘environmentally friendly’, ‘green’, etc. etc. nobody flipping butts everywhere, starting forest fires, reusable and mostly recyclable materials. Wow what a deal!
    Pft.

    I still love the T-Shirt my wife gave me for Christmas one year…
    “I beat Anorexia”
    I didn’t just beat it, I kicked it’s arse too lol. I actually fall just barely under the very top ‘accepted weight’ for my body type – according to the ‘wellness plan’ that we have.
    So that just goes to show you how accurate these weight / obesity programs and bologna are. It is all relative to the person. If you are happy and healthy, then who gives a rat.
    My doctor can never believe it, but I constantly get a clean bill of health – normal blood pressure, low cholesterol, great blood work results. Every time for the last 20 years.
    I don’t know if it is genetics, what you grew up on or what. I eat a lot of red meat, some salad greens and veggies, but a majority of ‘meat and potatoes’ diet. I dunno. It works for me for some reason.

    Darwin Day… it almost sounded like a day where people would join together and participate in the Darwin Awards. I’d almost do Pay-Per-View!

    @justanry – who is? Boehner? Clinton? dillweed?
    It is outlandish because it is incessant. On all sides. “I heard that somebody said that they know somebody that knows for certain that so and so absolutely did this or that. Or so I hear.”
    It’s old and tired. Allegedly.

    Just the aliens stopping off for fuel again… topping off the ol’ plasma on the way to Alpha Centauri.
