I'll admit that I was hoping for a Walcott moment if we won.

But guys, let's not turn this into a .gif thread. Please. Tongue

Yes, please. Also, yes on the orchestras.

I was trying to be glib but let me more blunt. I was thinking she might be some sort of homemaker in waiting. And that was extremely strange to me. It reminded it me of the discussion I had with a friend who was at Tufts few years ago about how people apparently still used "gay" as an insult. At this point, it's an alien outlook on life. And I'm not sure how I feel about it.

Yes. I am jumping to conclusions. And yes, I'm being an liberal elitist despite not being a liberal. I ought to think well of homemakers. Yet the idea of young women in this day and age wanting to be one does not sit well with me.

I like this idea of looking at behavioral modification vis a vis religious belief. Tell me more.
3029  General Discussion / Religion & Philosophy / Re: People dressing formally at church is correlated to...what exactly? on: June 15, 2014, 05:20:32 pm
Church today was actually disgustingly New Rite. The music all sounded like some jazz club and they were actually clapping during the dismissal. I just left at that point. It was completely inappropriate and lacked solemnity. The only nice thing about it was the fact the deacon was smartly dressed in a traditional cassock and surplice, which was right up my alley.

Moderate, so are you saying we should be holding employers ransom to gratuitous wage hikes out of the knowledge that their employees' jobs can't be outsourced? That's atrocious. After a while, we'll figure out a way to replace those jobs, don't you worry.

Who said I had a cconnection with her? I just found it strange. Should I find it strange? Does this make me a feminist?
3035  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Opinion of having "opebo314" as a wi-fi password on: June 15, 2014, 07:13:38 am
In terms of things that are OK to do online, sharing your password with strangers is probably at the bottom of the list just behind "sharing your social security number" and "sending money orders to Nigeria."

Well I guess if anyone here ever comes to Minneapolis, finds my apartment building, hangs out near it and identifies my network name, they can get free wi-fi as long as they're there. Otherwise knowing that password is good for absolutely nothing.

I'll admit I thought this, too.

I saw a girl at the gym today watch the Food Network whilst on the treadmill. What does this mean? I feel like it says something about her. And I don't think a lot of my classmates at college would approve of it. And I've so thoroughly immersed myself in that culture I'm not sure I'm comfortable with it myself. Do people like that still exist in this part of the country? Is it indicative of a certain attitude or am I over-thinking this as usual?

Damn, that lasagna looks really good actually. But I can't eat it, for a number of reasons.

Creepy old boner-shrinking w*tch.

Not (straight).

Not that I think Hillary Clinton is Bar Refaeli or anything, but this is an awful thing to say about someone.

Almost certainly, but that doesn't stop most of us (myself included) from attempting to persuade ourselves otherwise.

IRL, the remains of the Ba'ath Party are backing ISIL. Is this true within our world?

Yes. Everything you read in the news is correct unless otherwise contradicted.

Do they wave their hands there? Ugh.

I will take a liturgical Protestant service over that stuff any day of the week. It's much more pleasing to the eye and ear.

Yeah, handwaving is the worst.
You guys are so boring? Why do you hate snakes and big hats and hand waving and random cries of AMEN at inappropriate moments?

Because it isn't actually a church service.

Let's keep masturbating over Saddam Hussein to a minimum here, thanks.

Should this go in the Silver Mine? It should, really. But since it's already here, I can't be bothered to move it.

Do you still believe homosexuality is a choice? If so, that could arguably be a bannable offense...

Wow, did you really just say that?

I will ask this again.  Believing what the Bible, which is inerrant and infallible, says about homosexuality is now a bannable offense?  I guess there is no freedom of religion and beliefs in this place anymore.

This is a private website, not a government entity under any kind of obligation to uphold the First Amendment in its dealings with its members. This line of argument demeans us, it demeans you, and most importantly it demeans the Bible, by implicitly positing that it isn't worth actually analyzing or critically but faithfully engaging with in any way and can't stand up to the slightest amount of such analysis or critical engagement from those of us who don't belong to whatever cuckoo-for-Cocoa-Puffs subvariety of snake-belly Low Church Protestantism it is that you do. Simfan, Harry, and I are all Christians and we all think this is an absolute joke. Positing Biblical inerrancy doesn't have to be a form of theological concern trolling, but it is as often as not.

Exceptionally good part underlined.

Months? Is that correct? Because you have a line saying "Iraq will be under ISIS control in a few weeks”
