Oh btw Hiding
That role model comment was not about you in any way. It's a whole different situation and much more to it but I'm not gonna rip the scab off it
I don't remember the exact working you may have used when talking to me about Tam but I wanted to make sure you knew it was definitely not that. I'm glad you two have a good relationship. I have seen nothing about it to indicate codependency
all this may have been for nothing as you may never thought it was about you but it was important to me to let you know I wouldn't try to use something said during a civil or friendly exchange. Anyway:)
huh? me no savvy

<quoted text>It actually was a nice little service and it was normally anywhere like an extra dime or 15 cents per gallon. But that was back when gas was $1-$1.30 per gallon. Like early 90s. And there had to be a full-service pump set aside. If assume when gas starts getting so expensive and not wanting a pump to be tied up for a service being used less and less is why it got phased out.
I might Google it to see when the last ones were around if there is some way to know that. I know I haven't seen one in at least ten years if not longer
We still have full service stations here. Most people are afraid to do the self-service thing. Literally afraid.

One of the things that dismays me about topix is if your intelligent you can be obnoxious and an asshole and people will tolerate the fact your an ass and accept it. Are people really that shallow? I dont think so. I sure hope not anyway. Topix tends to attract the extremists........
Topix should please you. It's where weak-minded people with no particular talent can fling feces at the kinds of people that they resent. Why don't you practice your chops. Pick one of the professions and smear it.

[2] We deplore efforts to denigrate human intelligence, explain the world in supernatural terms, and look outside nature for salvation.
[3] We believe that scientific discovery and technology can contribute to the betterment of human life.
[4] We believe in an open and pluralistic society and that democracy is the best guarantee of protecting human rights from authoritarian elites and repressive majorities.

[18] We are skeptical of untested claims to knowledge, and we are open to novel ideas.
[19] We affirm humanism as a realistic alternative to theologies of despair and ideologies of violence and as a source of rich personal significance and genuine satisfaction in the service to others.
[20] We believe in optimism, hope, learning, truth, joy, tolerance, love, compassion, beauty, and reason rather than pessimism, despair, dogma, ignorance, guilt or sin, fear, hatred, selfishness, ugliness, and blind, irrational faith.
[21] We believe in the fullest realization of the best and noblest that we are capable of as human beings.

Interesting....
That's from early last century. It's a Soviet organization. Here's the transliteration of the membership card: "Soyuz voinstvuyushchikh bezbozhnikov"

We're secular humanists, not Communists. We deplore ideologies of violence as much as we do theologies of despair.

The fact that that was your illustration of how dangerous we are is evidence that you have no case.

Wrong Skippy.

How can your "genealogy of Adam" laughable theory be used to determine the age of the Earth when Adam wasn't even around when God created the Heavens and the Earth in Genesis 1:1.

Epic fail Grasshopper!!!

Care to try again?
_______

And while you're at it, please feel free to dazzle us with your biblical knowledge by telling us how much time elapsed between Genesis 1:1 and Genesis 1:2.

We'll all be waiting Skippy.

All due respect Hiding but people can use a legal degree for a lot of different things, not just trial law, and no way, no how is Catcher a trial attorney. HL admitted as much, although I'm sure she didn't realize it exposed earlier claims as fraudulent
Twisting people's words again into your own stories?
When did HL make any such statement and how would you know how an anonymous poster online acts in real life?

I thoroughly enjoy your continuing banter with Ian's.

It's not much of a choice, is it?
I left out couple others. ;)

"They took the king's sons, and slew seventy persons, and put their heads in baskets, and sent him them to Jezreel. And there came a messenger, and told him, saying, They have brought the heads of the king's sons. And he said, Lay ye them in two heaps at the entering in of the gate until the morning." (2 Kings 10:7,8)

Baskets full of heads?
Stephen King is inspired!

"And there was a great famine in Samaria….And the king said unto her, What aileth thee? And she answered, This woman said unto me, Give thy son, that we may eat him to day, and we will eat my son to morrow. So we boiled my son, and did eat him: and I said unto her on the next day, Give thy son, that we may eat him: and she hath hid her son." (2 Kings 6:25-29)

That whole scenario is so appalling it nauseates. Boiled her son? Did she boil him like a lobster, just drop the squirming infant into boiling water, or did she kill him first before putting him in the pot?
What spices were used any bay leaves?

I have questions! < Giggles>
