» TheBeardedDude - 16-11-11 09:28 -- Who knows what the answer is, but even though you do feel guilty (and I do too sometimes), you have to remind yourself you shouldn
» Escape Artist - 16-11-11 09:28 -- Yeah - I feel badly for a lot of my family.
» TheBeardedDude - 16-11-11 09:28 -- Maybe, like me, you were able to get a perspective they didn't get
» TheBeardedDude - 16-11-11 09:28 -- I got an education that a lot of my friends and family back home will never have access to.
» Escape Artist - 16-11-11 09:28 -- Why was I lucky enough to to see through the lies and question these things and eventually break free and they aren't?
» TheBeardedDude - 16-11-11 09:27 -- I feel guilty about a number of things similar to that. I got out of religion, but a lot of my friends didn't and I feel like they are trapped. I got out of my small town and a lot of my family and friends will never escape it or the mentality that goes with it.
» Escape Artist - 16-11-11 09:26 -- I wonder if there is a sort of "survivor's guilt" to becoming an atheist when you come from a religious family. There are so many times I wonder... how did I get out? And why are they still stuck? How is it that my mom can be the kind of person who is distrustful of most people never have questioned any of her pastors over the years? Never questioned her parents or wondered if maybe, just maybe, they were wrong? It angers me and frustrates me. Are they cowards? Are they just not curious enough? What is it that keeps them shackled to these irrational beliefs?
» TheBeardedDude - 16-11-11 09:19 -- Hypocrites are the worst
» Escape Artist - 16-11-11 08:18 -- So my idiot fucking brother just did a Facebook post about how if people are nice to him, he's nice to them. This is the same fucker who stopped dating a wonderfully sweet woman in part because her roommate was gay and she had gay friends. She committed the SIN of being friendly and welcoming to those in the LGBT community. My brother is a fucking asshole. Fuck my whoel fucking family. Fuck 'em.
» Revenant77x - 16-11-10 17:13 -- Look if you are gonna keep getting in the trap I'm gonna have to start charging rent
» TheBeardedDude - 16-11-10 17:10 -- You got three wrong!
» Escape Artist - 16-11-10 16:09 -- heh Smile
» Revenant77x - 16-11-10 15:45 -- easiest way to get a scientist to post is to get 1 minor detail wrong
» Revenant77x - 16-11-10 15:45 -- Ha he fell into my trap
» TheBeardedDude - 16-11-10 15:35 -- The Jurassic is during the Mesozoic ERA
» TheBeardedDude - 16-11-10 15:34 -- I don't study coprolites or the Jurassic PERIOD
» Revenant77x - 16-11-10 15:03 -- TBD is only interested in talking about bowel movements that happened in the Jurassic Era
» Escape Artist - 16-11-10 14:33 -- Sorry. Blush Workplace gripes Hobo
» TheBeardedDude - 16-11-10 14:32 -- That may be enough of the shoutbox for me today...or this century
» Escape Artist - 16-11-10 14:27 -- And believe me I don't want people to be flaunting that shit (pardon the expression again) either, but geez is it so much to ask to just get some damn music in there or something? Like at the restaurants?
» Escape Artist - 16-11-10 14:26 -- Ugh. Can we please get some light music or something in the bathroom, that way when someone is in the stall next to you taking a shit, they don't frantically unroll toilet paper to try and mask the sound of their pooping? Dodgy This is totally a woman thing, I am sure. Men don't give a shit. Pardon the expression. Tongue
» TheBeardedDude - 16-11-10 14:09 -- Well I ain't too happy with my Dem party right now either. They better put some more Bernie and Warren types in positions to win goddammit
» Momsurroundedbyboys - 16-11-10 14:06 -- We will get through the next few years. Remember, in two years we get to vote again for congress and senate. If enough people are annoyed and hold onto those feels, the dems could take both
» Momsurroundedbyboys - 16-11-10 14:03 -- Hug
» TheBeardedDude - 16-11-10 13:23 -- My stomach has been so tumultuous the last few days that I trumped out of both ends
» Escape Artist - 16-11-10 13:20 -- good idea Yes
» TheBeardedDude - 16-11-10 13:18 -- Can we turn words like "Barf" and "disgusting" into Trump? This food tastes like Trump. I need a flamethrower for my tongue to remove the taste!
» Escape Artist - 16-11-10 13:11 -- Barf - this person's food smells absolutely disgusting.
» Escape Artist - 16-11-10 13:07 -- Humanity: I still hate you. We'll keep you updated with the latest as it comes in.
» TheBeardedDude - 16-11-10 11:20 -- This is why I drink and why I plan on spending more time in MA to get some weed
» Escape Artist - 16-11-10 11:17 -- We are so screwed. Republicans across teh board. Weeping I am depressed all over again.
» TheBeardedDude - 16-11-10 11:10 -- I deactivated it because Trump hasn't even started screwing up yet, not really. I know what will happen when I post an article detailing an actual Trump policy failure and I don't want to engage with people who have no interest in discussion and who's only interest is on their selfish and greedy perception of how the world should work. If their attitude is "fuck anyone who isn't looking our for me specifically" then fuck em
» Keen - 16-11-10 11:01 -- It truly is less stressful
» Keen - 16-11-10 11:01 -- I just reactivated mine after deactivating it for months before the election. I may go back to deactive.
» TheBeardedDude - 16-11-10 09:51 -- I deactivated my FB and twitter. A significant portion of the voting block are so stupid/greedy/uninformed that having a rational conversation with them is essentially impossible. If they want to have the attitude of "fuck everyone else but me," then fuck em
» Escape Artist - 16-11-10 09:49 -- Of course we're speaking of the voting population.
» Escape Artist - 16-11-10 09:49 -- I suppose I should say that a quarter of the nation seems to be looking to the future and looking for progress, another quarter is clinging desperately to the past, and a full half of the nation just doesn't give a fuck. Or else they were unable to get out and vote.
» Escape Artist - 16-11-10 09:47 -- I keep seeing a lot of messages on FB and Twitter and the like about how we need to unite through this and not divide but I'm sorry - how can we unite as a nation when the two sides are diametrically opposed to one another? When each side has totally different ideas about the best way to run this country?
» TheBeardedDude - 16-11-10 09:43 -- I am going to be cussing a whole fucking hell of a lot more
» TheBeardedDude - 16-11-10 09:43 -- I realized that I will show Trump and his supporters as much respect as Obama was shown for the last 8 years.
» TheBeardedDude - 16-11-10 09:42 -- It only took me a few hours after the tallies started coming in!
