I suspect that everyone here has forgotten what the argument is actually about. I've seen nothing but senseless but occasionally entertaining squabbling for quite a while now.

I hope they keep on talking. It just solidifies the fact that they are low life losers.

Depends on how far back you want to go. You want to hazard a guess before I spill?

LOL! I haven't been on here long enough to even know what the argument was in the first place.

I just read an article that quoted John McCain saying," we need to supply weapons to Ukraine in order to prevent a civil war from breaking out". How exactly does that work?

It's a Rogue knockoff, but it's pretty nice all the same. I bought it when I was playing in a band the played only Beatles tunes.

I've lived in Springhouse, PA, Sudbury, MA, Boston, MA, Mason, NH, Nashua, NH, South Thomaston, Me, Camden Me, Gorham, ME, Gray, ME, Portland, ME, North Gorham, Me, Richmond, VA, Charlottesville, VA, Shepherdstown, WV, Sweetwater, TN, and Knoxville, TN. Where to next? Hard to say...

I have a Chinese McCartney violin body also, but it is a guitar. I like it because it is very easy to play when setting down. I also love the hollow body because it is light and sounds like a resonator.

Wow! Are you a drifter, or just easily board? My guess is work, you don't seem like the type that needs to be escorted out of town like they did on The Andy Griffin Show.

I wasn't looking for a complete list of places you have lived, but what was your most favorite?

I thought about that. There is a prison in South Thomaston, you know. I wasn't in it, though. I moved there with my new bride to help turn a barn into a house and get some agriculture going. That didn't happen and my wife didn't get along with my brother, so we got an apartment in Camden. I worked at the local medical center and got to know some of the local musicians. In the meantime, my wife was volunteering at a free clinic for women and decided to go to nursing school.

Off to Southern Maine and a series of apartments as we separated, got back together, and had our first daughter. Nursing school on hold, we both got into fiber arts, then had twins.

Back to nursing school, then to Richmond for her first job as a NICU nurse, grad schools, first in Richmond, then in Charlottesville, then midwifery school via distance learning. On to Shepherdstown and then to Sweetwater for midwifery jobs. Through all this, it was all I could do to stay employed, so when the marriage finally ended, I wound up broke, but employed here in Knoxville and finally back to playing in a couple of bands. I took courses here and there, but never completed a degree. I did edit and type many of her papers until her first adviser in her PhD program helped her to hone her skills as a writer.

Now I work so that I can play with bands, and I'll do that until the end comes or something moves me on again.

Life is weird. But good.

Sob story common to people who haven't the intelligence
to master birth control. Or an education.

You deserve your " good weird " life.
Unfortunately you're a burden on society too.

You're more on our shoes than in our heads. Maybe tracked in onto the linoleum. Messy, but easily managed. I dream of a world not quite so conducive to the perpetuation of ignorance. Is that what you mean?

Actually, we are right on topic. Nightserf has demonstrated (once again) that you can be "good without a god" while WFO counters with another sickening display of 'botism. Onward Christian Soldiers!

How so? I've always supported myself and my family, all of our children were planned, all three have advanced degrees and contribute to society,as does my ex. My support, both material and logistical made all of that possible. I continue to do useful work and contribute to the local music scene both as a musician and as a sound guy.

What is this compulsion you have to insult anyone and everyone whether you know anything about them or not? It's not a sign of good mental health.

You still haven't explained how you make hundreds of thousands of dollars being an amateur stock trader, but pay no federal income tax. I know you can't be a simple tax dodger. SEC reports earnings and losses directly to IRS.

Please teach this lower level human your secret.
