We both physically harmed people. He got a jailor. I got a Psychiatrist. A simple twist of fate.
I'm justfuckin with ya now :)
Anyway, we both did something that society deemed wrong and we were dealt with according to the laws of our state. He was an adult and I was not. We both got locked into our rooms at night.

I comprehend. It doesn't bother me. He's not a threat to me.

Of course it taught him something. You don't experience that without learning. I don't know what it taught him but I know that he learned something. There is no way around that as far as I know.
<quoted text>
I don't. Skom and I have something in common. That's the extent of it. I understand what he's talking about when he mentions incarceration. Other than that, we are quite different. I'm fairly sure he's not an Asian lesbian atheist.

I can deal with that.
Hey Tam!

Been taking a break from Topix again. No specific reason, just have had other things I have been doing. But someone sent me a t-mail because they though I would appreciate this post you wrote. They were right and I just wanted to say thanks. I was never going to go and read the back-posts being a couple weeks behind so I am glad I didn't miss this.

I think most things in life are learning experiences if we let them be. Especially the more challenging times. And sometimes they simply allow us the time to engage in introspection. I certainly would have made the same choice to put myself in harm's way to defend a very good friend of mine who was injured and was about to become more injured. But when it happened, it wasn't that long after one of my best friends was killed and I wasn't exactly in a good place emotionally. While I definitely did not see it as an opportunity when I was sentenced, the time i spent there ended up being a blessing in disguise. I got to know myself a lot better. I got to do a lot of thinking about the things I placed value on and how superficial they were like drinking and sleeping around. It made me really think about what was important to me and in life in general. I reconnected with God when I had allowed the gap to grow wide. I got in the best shape physically and mentally that I had ever been in. I walked out of there a wiser person. Although it took me some time to fully appreciate that.

Anyway, I was kind of touched when I read your post. I hope everything has been good with you my friend. I am going to try to check in more often and hope you are around when I do

(T) Peace

You might have never had any type of problems with them so one tells me food supply most probably plentiful and two most of them never ventured into you living area. Cause that is what happens when they looking for food and some of them have no fear of humans.
They will come in no matter where you are, if hungry enough. Nature has it minus and pluses and balances and checks.

Hey Le Le,
I have clicked on a link but am doing it less and less. Not wanting a virus seems like a reasonable reason to me.
Give it some time and you will most likely see a lot you haven’t yet. Some things are ok or not ok depending on how it can be used to a persons benefit.
I just don’t like all this swapping insults and trying to see who can top the other with a nasty remark. That’s why I’m not in here as much. It is so easy for me to get drawn into it. And really, what good is that kind of posting doing. If anything I think it makes both sides look pathetic. I know I don’t want to go back and read some of my pathetic posts.
It’s good to see you my friend. Believe it or not I have missed you.:)

Weused to have a cottage up north and there was a wild bluejay that would fly down and perch on your hand and hop in the car or get up on a table and eat right next to you. Yet it would go after bugs in the air so it was definitely still a wild bird, it just learned to be around humans.

The cottage was in a private community with nothing really within miles and its own security although people could literally leave their doors unlocked at night. I mention that just to paint a picture of how peaceful it was both with the actual people and the area itself as it was surrounded by woods and water all over. Deer would come right up to salt-licks in backyards.

There is something very amazing to me when man and nature are on the same side. It is a shame it so rarely happens

Either learn to live with nature or go away. It is more important than we are.

Christianity has done a lot of Charity work all over the world.
So people continue to claim. I guess that you expect others to believe that that amounts to more than just a few crumbs - a handful of percent - from its huge collection plate on faith like you do.

But I don't, and for the reasons given right here on this thread - lack of evidence.

And believe me there is a lot of evil Christianity has done.
Believe YOU? That's the message you fight tooth and nail every day. The question is whether you can DEMONSTRATE - not claim, but demonstrate - that your crumbs of charity even come close to compensating for that great evil you agree that your church does.

You're proud of all of that evil you mentioned? I'm proud to oppose it.

Your church is dying in the West. As we discussed recently, your church is essentially powerless in all of Europe, Australia, and Canada, and is hemorrhaging social and political clout in America.

Other than the US, your church only determines policy and social mores in Latin America, which is also becoming more secular through satellite telecommunications and the Internet, although it still lags behind the European West.

Everywhere in the West, the church is either losing political and social power, or has already lost it. If that's the kind of growth you mean, then I wish you continued success.

Thanks for the info, Quin.
Good to see you again.
You're welcome G. Ever heard of a guy named Matisyahu? Probaly not... I never have until a couple days ago at the gym when a music video came on... I had to stop working out to see this. Pretty... um... interesting.

Looked at his bio and he was born here in the states, non-Jamaican...he did grow up Jewish, backslid from that and I guess found his way back but he came back with an interesting mix...
