RE: Having to Confess to Toastmasters
Going back to your original post, I doubt you need to tell anyone you are 'different'. At least a couple of them probably figured that out.

I'm not anti-social. I'm pro-solitude. Sleepy

RE: Having to Confess to Toastmasters
Wait, you believe in astrology? Seriously? Dude, that is fucking embarrasing.

I would correct you, but I am not sure you would gain anything from me doing that myself.

Do some reading. It has been proved a pseudoscience, long before I was even born.

Try not to believe in things that are provably false, its a bit sad really, like Alchemy for example.

Religion, rather than acting as a symbol of truth or justice, merely acts as a symbol of human gullibility and stupidity. Surely no race of beings with any real intelligence would concoct such drivel.

Probably was a good idea to get that out in front and deal with it now rather than have a bunch of hurt feelings and toes stepped on.

Thanks. Actually, just for the record, it's a public speaking club.

It's pretty fuckin' simple. And now you've got my post-workout hormones raging. Dodgy

Fucking christ; why is he still here? Why are any of them still here?

My wife is a Cherokee Indian. She's a member of the Cherokee Nation, in fact. The term "Dot not Feather" is a humorous line Robin Williams says in the movie, "Good Will Hunting," one of our favorite movies. My wife knows she's a "Native American" but she also considers herself a Cherokee Indian.

So...STFU Dodgy

Well, I couldn't do that unless I was the president, and Toastmasters already requires that people do an "Icebreaker" speech where they talk about themselves. But I'm an Avanced Toastmaster (silver award), so I'm beyond that speech, and in fact, that's probably why they want me to take over as president even though we're new to the club.

We're members of two art leagues as well. I just recently did the photos for the newspaper for one of the art shows. Imagine that.

Astrology isn't science. So why should I care? It's not pseudoscience either. It's not science at all.

Bite me ? STFU ?
I wish I could go to Toastmasters and learn to do those clever retorts.

I have to let my alter ego, Jack, express my feelings toward you on this one:

Egor, don't you know that atheists are the scum of the earth? Aimless, hateful people with no morals? And now you've become a heathen?

RE: Having to Confess to Toastmasters
Some of you guys haven't heard of toastmasters international?

It's an organisation or club that provides free training for pubic speaking. There is one in almost every major city around many parts of the world.

I've been once. Didn't have the balls to go back Big Grin

Its not super scary, though I didn't have a need for it at the time. Maybe I'll go back some time soon since I'll have to do presentations for some of my subjects this semester. It can't hurt to practice and get some objective feedback.
