Who's life it saves as opposed to the lives it destroys, like the lives of the Dutch farmers and their families; and the access to cheaper food for the population of the importing countries. Not to mention the human rights abuse and the creation of a prescedent that the state can confiscate your pr...

I distinguish two aspects in this climate change cult. One is scientism, that is the practice of citing science as an argument that legitimizes one's ideological beliefs. Nazism claimed anthropology and biology as scientific proof of their racial theory. Communism claimed the science of histiograph...

I am not saying that climate change is not real, I am saying that there is a cult about it. I question the political interference with the economy. I also question the extent at which we can meaningfully control the climate of the entire planet. I question the sanity of it all. This cult has even i...

One of the things I find humorous though is its usually the more fundamentalist conservative types who claim the world will end soon, and they often give a specific date. Yet when scientists get onboard and make predictions about our doom suddenly they resist and say that suddenly the world will be...

Years ago, I had an annual job, printing out a custom calendar on a scroll. My customer wanted Monday as the first day of the week, and she wanted it on a roll so that it could be wound up one week at a time, letting her enter appointments without flipping up to the next month. This year, I finally ...

[That therapist sounds like a bit of a moron. After the discovery of the Dunning-Kruger principle - that people who can't do their jobs can't tell they can't do them - John Cleese took an informal survey. Whenever he happened to meet someone he considered particularly competent, he would ask what p...

I'm not on the best terms with my mother anymore. She tells me I'm an ungrateful, disrespectful, needy, whiny so-and-so when my father tries to help and she wants me to do everything myself from now on. When we have dinner or when they call me for something, all they hear is a loud, disgusted sigh....

@ Fenn. My neighbour says "measure twice, cuss once." I was once on a job to finish the odd jobs around a renovated house. Carpet had been installed, so the bottoms of doors needed to be trimmed. The new guy, wanting to impress, popped out some hinge pins, quickly set the door on a pair of...

We get sent out to do all the hard and dangerous work, and are far less likely to be noted if we die trying to support and protect our families. A chance at glory is our compensation, while the women get security as a birthright. There's nothing more dangerous to a human body than pregnancy and giv...

<snip quote> Sorry, I don't know anything about American history. I'm talking about BC (Before Christ) in Britain with the Ancient Britons. Then came Celts, Romans, Anglo Saxons, Vikings, Normans- all those invading groups had male dominated societies, and this persisted until fairly recently in Br...

^^ The last time I was in Victoria, BC, there was a year-round Christmas decor store in the tourist area. I don't have any trouble with a new year in the sense of the number sequence being incremented - New Year's Day is only one day farther, as usual. I do feel dismay at how both myself, and the wo...

I have only been thinking about this thread, because I want to finish the project I'm working on. Right now, I have glue drying. I have a hard time getting started, but once engaged, I have a head full of relevant details, and interruptions are very hard on the process. Scott Adams (Dilbert) remarks...

Well, I'll try this. In reply to Mona Pereth, of Jan 3 12:22 AM: Human memory is not like a book or a movie. Every time it is "read" it gets re-written, and it may have gotten edited. In my ex, it only took days for a vague suspicion to become "solid fact" in her mind. My support...

My parents were traumatized in different ways by their childhoods, and then by history marching on to put them in a world they had never prepared for. They were pretty overwhelmed without the puzzle of myself. It didn't help, of course, when they did try to get help for me, and the helpers started t...

When I try to quote and reply, I just get a "check for secure connection" loop. I suspect someone got offended.

I quit asking my parents questions very early, when I saw they didn't have the answers, nor interest in finding them.
