But the bigger question, is why, if ones body mass is increasing, why it doesnt show up in those "delicate" places?
We only gain weight in certain places and not others.

Often fat people look like they have little heads.

And women always say they gain and lose first in their breasts.

Adipose tissue tends to collect here more than there?? And some guys get fat all over while others keep skinny arms and legs and get big guts. Some people get big behinds and others don't...etc

Speaking of delicate - I heard something quickly in the locker room TV this morning about another Bobbitizing somewhere.
Yeah I saw something about that. An Asian import wife cut it off and put it in the blender.

She was just sentenced I believe.

One lady over in Asia somewhere cut if off and attached it to a balloon I read.

I think its great too. Fair is fair.
Though as a Jew, I wasnt too crazy when the Chabad movement started putting menorahs next to public Christmas displays. My preference is to have NO public displays.
Yeah why do we need to advertise our religious beliefs? Or promote them?

BTW, I attended service at the First Congregational Church of Cheshire yesterday; Really gorgeous and old church with much history; and NO KNEELING! Also great music and a nice people.
(We had gone to the Strawberry Festival there a few weeks back.)

The pastor graduated from Staples HS in '86 and Yale Divinity School. Good sermon too.

I plan to return.

Not too preachy and very positive.

Yes, Silverman. Jews make the BEST atheists. Because we are "bred" to question and more important, to express our questions.
I like that. Have always been told I'm "too philosophical." Whatever that means.

My dad graduated #2 in his law school class. If I had it to do over I'd probably have gone that way.

It brings back too many memories of being forced via peer pressure to sing xmas carols in public school. I doubt that would happen today in my area though, as xtainity is not the dominant religion anymore and white Europeans do not dominate anymore- but back then....
And in some of the communities here the chabad are just as bad/pushy as the evangelicals...Its hard to legitimately criticize the evangelicals when the chabad pretty much do the same thing.
Yes, I faced the same thing. Sometimes I would rebel and draw study hall instead of singing carols. Other times my friends and I would make up alternate words to the carols ("G-d rest ye, Jerry Mandelbaum" and "It's beginning to look a lot like brisket -- every Friday night")

As for the Chabad, I appreciate their "in your face" Judaism as a counter-foil to the "in your face Xtianity" of the evangelicals. Besides, they don't convert.

Could mean being reflective, or just questioning.

I work with a lot of attorneys. Most seem unhappy with their choice of profession. Though I have met more than a few characters who sincerely enjoy the litigative aspects.

We didnt have enough Jewish kids to band together like that.

"in your face": Foil is nice, but our concerns were that we spent a decade or two fighting the imposition of ANY religion on the public sector, and these clowns (and they were initially) roll right into the community with no invitation and start advocating for everything we have been fighting against. Of since, we have learned that not all chabad groups are alike - they are all outposts of a sort - but some are definitely more intrusive than others....

Frijoles --- Long before the Supreme Court overturned the Defense of Marriage Act, conspiracy broadcaster Alex Jones was warning his viewers that the government was turning people gay by putting chemicals in their juice boxes, water bottles, and potato chip bags that feminized men......

RickM-- Real men drink their juice from BOTTLE, not BOXES.

HughBe---It seems to me that your government was among the first converts and indeed for the laws to be passed conversion would have to take place.

Reminds me of when I was in college - A friend was invited to a Hare Krishna vegetarian dinner - the Krishnas made it sound like a big event - lots of people invited. And it was! My friend (only) plus lots of the Krishnas.

He did tell me the food was excellent, but he skedaddled out before the chanting really got going afterwords...

Be employable, study philosophy

arguing, when I'm well-rested anyway.

Did I say arguing? Of course I meant discussing/exchanging views etc.

I know a guy who majored in philosophy, then went on to medical school and is now head of pulmonary medicine at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Texas. He's my friend's brother.
