I am an atheist. It took me a long time to be able to say that, but I"ve been saying it about a year now.

I said "Agnostic" for a while because it seemed so arrogant to say in EITHER direction -- that you know there's a god or that there isn't.

But I realized over time that I"m not agnostic. I think for many atheists, agnosticism is a transition from when you were raised to believe in god and other similar stuff.

dahgts, I overuse AWESOME both in speech and in internet posts/emails. I'm sorry. I 'm aware of it though, but I seem unable to stop.

I have eliminated "that's what she said" though.

sorry for this image, but yesterday, I was just sitting at my computer and I could feel the sweat running down my skin. I finally got up, closed all the blinds (they were mostly closed, but a few were still open at the bottom so the cats could look out and watch stuff), took a COOL shower, then just never got dressed the rest of the night. I did that a couple more times -- cool shower, then just didn't bother getting dressed. No one can see in, and at least I wasn't creating more laundry (I had already gone through three changes of clothes at that point).

Again with this. How do you know today's 3rd graders have more intelligence than grown men from 2000 years ago? Have we unearthed some ancient ACT test found on a stone tablet?

I do disagree with your assessment of Mimi but I am wondering -- what does "who can't keep a man" mean? I read that post of yours and all i can think is -- this is a guy who has never been married to my knowledge and is begging for dates.
And I might point out you have no idea what Mimi's personal relationships are like.
Some of us have been around here for a few years. I happen to know Mimi has been married and divorced at least five times.

I LOVE Newsroom. The writing, acting, everything is done well. I don't have HBO and watched the first season for free On Demand. I gotta get HBO. It's worth it just for that series.
Yeah....Newsroom is the best new show in years, this season should be even better, since we know who everyone is now....lol...If you get HBO, checkout, Boardwalk Empire....it's kinda unique, fascinating about bootlegging in the 20's....Steve Buscemi is a great actor, i think....

I just came in from watering again, therefore the rant, but I can understand your discomfort at home without a/c.

people want to know why I left az. heat, that's why.

It's hot. I told someone in the elevator this morning (and it wasn't even that bad yet) that I felt like I was swimming instead of walking. The air is very thick.

We're definitely going to the beach tonight. The water temp. is a bracing 74 degrees. I made it in up to my butt yesterday and that was enough to cool me down. But what's actually better is being hugged by a cold child; perfect for both of us.

That's where people really misunderstand Florida. we never see temperatures like some in the midwest have, this summer....92 tops, and alway's a breeze, in this area...from Fort Pierce to Miami, always a breeze....Down here, we've become artists at going from our AC'd home, in our AC'd car, To our AC'd job or shopping.....I still miss Fall, but hope never to see snow again....lol....It's Awesome...oh, sorry....

I had no clue about it until I was in college and guy friends talked about it. I have to assume that 18yo women going off to college have no idea how lucky they are, just this once, to not have a penis.

I agree, if they truly want sexual equality....BTW, the way to solve sexual harassment and attacks is....SEPARATE DIVISIONS...EVEN WHOLE FORTS....Problem solved.....

75 but its been overcast all day so the heat's trapped and i have a headache. Clouds are starting to ho away and a breeze is starting...par for the course here. Im right ny (not on, by) the water so all this trapped heat will go away in a bit.

Ask any 3rd grader why you wash your hands and what can happen if you don't. Ask grown men from 2000 years ago why folks get sick and they would blame it on an invisible man in the sky ... Nuff said.

Summer of 68 I was between Freshman and sophomore years in college. I was taking classes at the Art Institute which is in the middle of Grant Park and taking Trigonometry at Loyola which is in the middle f Rush Street just down the street from the Armory . All week I went from hippie camp out protests to hungover conventioneers interspersed with the Guard in jeeps with barbed wire on the back cruising near Holy Name Cathedral and north Michigan Ave.

Been there. Done that. Drove my parents nuts especially my father who is an ex Chicago cop. At least one of their friends was hurt in the melee.

Then back to CU for more, but not quite the same.

I don't think it's near "nuff" at all. Have you... actually ASKED grown men from 2000 years ago?

I'm asking how you KNOW all this. Do you have a legitimate answer? Or is all this just your opinion?

I also didn't say intelligence ... I said worldly knowledge. Knowledge is a component of intelligence, but intelligence is much more than just knowledge, IMO.
