Well... on the upside this hypothetical Amish theocracy would lead America back into the horse and buggy era. No cars. Just horses and buggies, and steam locomotives. Air travel would be via helium dirigibles (not hydrogen like the Hindenburg, just non flammable helium like the goodyear blimps). So...

I think the website is just glitching out at the moment , try again later or another day. Thanks. I made it on today. By the way, wh...

From what I understand, it used to be the case in my state that a girl's sexual history was material. If a man was charged with having sex with an under-aged prostitute, he had a defense if he could show that she was a prostitute. Since then, the law has changed and now there is no defense to the c...

Having been a Democrat who could work well with Republicans, I have learned enough about all political parties to realize that, while parties are legally able to exist, they should be prohibited in government. Doing away with the freedom to associate with those you want is not what we need. What I'...

The general description for this discussion group asks if you count cards or otherwise "cheat casinos." I don't know why it is considered "cheating." It's not cheating. The casinos don't like it because they think it works against them. They have the option of deciding whether o...

I was raised to see casinos as evil places for stupid people but I've always thought it'd be fun to just take $100 (tell myself that's ALL I'm going to spend) and spend the day there and see what I come out with. Do you guys think that's a good idea? I would probably have to spend all day on the sl...

I forgot to get a flu shot this year.

I have to go to the doctor next week to get my thyroxine prescription renewed so I'll ask for a flu shot while I'm there.

Forgetting about Trump for a moment, hows about we check in with some real Indians and ask what they think of Elizabeth Warren? Here's one writing for the far-left ThinkProgress website: In defending her supposed Native identity, Warren has drawn from both racist stereotypes and easily refutable st...

Can only speak for myself. I don't "denigrate the religious". In fact sometime on WP I even defend religion from unreasonable attack. But I do call out the religious when they venture outside of religion to try manipulate science to "prove" literal interpretation of scripture. W...

^^^^ Oooooh, 'tis Gaelic! Kokopelli, you reminded me of one of my favorite novels - The Singing Sands by Josephine Tey - the protagonist ends up in the Highlands and the Hebrides and there's a bit about how Gaelic is an ancient tongue and hasn't incorporated technical English, so conversations end ...

Why does it matter so much what other people think? If it is a problem with your area maybe you should move away... They won't leave me alone. They want to keep beating me up until I start loving the pain. They beat you up? That sounds like a police matter. It's more in terms of verbal hazing and b...
