Maybe there really aren't that many more fundamentalists here than there already were; it's just that they have become aggressively political. They were politicized in the early 70s, around the time of the Neo-Con coup of the NRA - which, prior to that time, was simply a sporting and safety oriente...

So, some interesting replies, including a rather epic one. Anybody else? This subject interests me greatly, so I'm really looking forward to any further votes/comments. Hope nobody minds that I'm bumping this post back up to the top to see if anyone else responds. Thanks to all who have already post...

Autism is neither a curse on me nor an opportunity for others to use me as their "angel" to prove their faith by being nice to me. It's something I struggle with sometimes and, at other times, find to be to my advantage in a variety of ways (because differing vantage points are advantageou...

roronoa79 makes a needed point here. The voting age in the U.S. used to be 21, but the draft age was 18. That's the reason for young people back in the era of the Vietnam war arguing that, if you're old enough to kill, you ought to be able to vote. Not because you should kill first, but because peop...

I'm just curious who's been inspired to explore consciousness and why, so here's a poll to get started. I've made it so you can check all the boxes that apply, as well as modify your response by adding things if you recall more or something new happens. I've also made it a never-ending poll, so you ...

Is SCA Society for Creative Anachronism? Yes. You can find your local group by going to Your mileage may vary, but if your closest group isn't a good fit, try a neighboring one in your region. If you live where there's a big group, you might find friends by exploring the various ...

Long post ahead, so I hope larger text helps, if you still don't mind reading it: I've never yet tried psychedelics, though I'm not against the idea. I just haven't had the right circumstances and availability present in order to feel comfortable trying. But I've learned a lot from reading about re...

I know it's been a few years since Netflix cancelled The OA, but I still miss it. Anybody else feel this way? I continue to have a sense of longing to see it finished, though I'm glad there was no cheap resolution by making a film instead of the 3 remaining seasons. Integrity made the show what it w...

No wonder they called him "Toot Uncommon"!

Hahaha! I'm sorry, but I can't get past this. It makes it sound like he was known for unusual farts!

My take on things here is very different, because I'm on disability, I have no kids, and I live with my girlfriend in a house she owns. So, take this as you like... I was in my 40s when I started to feel the crunch between so much potential being ahead of me when I was younger and less established a...

I'm extremely lucky in having a therapist I can talk to about anything I want or need to, including the kind of thing you mentioned, and know that I'm safe. But I live in a whole different state from you, and such awesome and progressive therapists are rare, unfortunately. There are services that pr...

Long post here, so bigger text for easier reading - hope it helps. I won't be offended if anyone still finds this too long to get through.

The messages that are given to autistic children are brutal. I felt this in my chest when I read it. I was diagnosed 11 years ago, and I'm spending a lot of time these days trying to sort out what's actually autism and what's the result of brutal treatment and brutal messages while growing up. If y...
