Today, I hopped on my mower, mowed my acre and a half lawn, got all my vegetables planted as we have an early spring, played with my dog, and chatted with my neighbor as he had come down the road when I was out getting the mail. He lives just a hair over a mile down the road from me. Outside of him, I didn't see another living human being today. It was quiet outside of the normal noises of nature and the breeze.

That sounds nice. I've been tempted to buy a place here for summer vacations and retirement. But I've only visited, so it could have been 'vacation mode' eyes.

For sure. I actually really like the dude (I assume he's a dude). He's a deep well of optimism. And I'm glad his religion makes him happy. But I can't broke equanimity with science. They're justnot equivalent at all.

I wonder which of you fears death more and who will be happy or scared at his/her deathbed. After all, it's what likely defines our individual existence in the end -- life unto death.

Just found out yesterday that I am also going to be moving to the Southeastern Pennsyltucky area for basically the same reason that you are, Blue. We may have to convene for some smoked meats, chili and beers.

I thought Blue lives in New York?

He's moving. Question is: Will he be in red or blue territory?

Have you considered going vegetarian as a trial? I suggest giving it a go for about a month. You might be surprised at the positive results at the positive results in digestion, energy levels, etc. It's easy to substitute that meat texture with beans, mushrooms, and other veggies.

Personally, I've been vegetarian (no meat or dairy products) for about 6 months and have lost some weight, focus better, and find that my energy levels are consistently higher, probably because I'm not digesting meat.

Worth a try?

And yes, I can use the word "never" just like you will freely admit to never being uninjured after jumping off a 200' building onto concrete.

I'm so predictable?

You figured out right away I'd focus on your use of the word 'never'.

The scenario might be possible.

Yes yes, according to multiverse theory and quantum mechanics anything is possible. There's a chance you could jump off a 20 story building naked and land uninjured on the concrete. Since you've got a truly open mind you'll try that and get back to us with the results right? Or are you willing to say you'd never land uninjured?

In which universe?

bobbob, please don't feed the bible troll.

If I don't agree with what he's saying, I'll argue the point or simply not respond. If he insults people or condemns them for not believing that's another matter. To reject a person, who has a belief system and is willing to have an open-conversation, is in itself an act of being close-minded and non-critical, in my opinion.

Besides, one of the greatest skeptical works of all time was written in the Bible. I suggest reading it, as it provides a foundation to critical thinking, existentialism, etc.

I don't get offended by your religious opinions. You advocate your positions but you haven't insulted people over it. If someone negates you in absolute terms, the hypocrisy is humorous and apparent. A true skeptic and critical thinker will always keep an open mind.

I dunno, some of it seems quite relevant today. Anxious

Scottish Martial Arts wrote on Feb 22, 2017, 12:43:
Didn't get the West Village apartment. Apparently the building management company concealed from my realtor that there was another applicant, and then basically stonewalled her when she asked for more info about why the other applicant was selected over me. My realtor's take was that the building management already had a tenant lined up and just played us to get an extra application fee. In my realtor's words, "Welcome to the world of New York real estate."

She's going to present me with some new listings later this afternoon, and then we'll go from there. Oh well.
Bummer. How much was the application fee?

Don't feel too bad though, this kind of thing can happen even in far less competitive markets. When I was looking for the house I own (with the mortgage company) now I was looking in a specific neighborhood. I had only really started looking, hadn't even signed on with a realtor yet. Found a listing pretty much right where I wanted to be. Called the listing agent, made an appointment for two days later to see the place. Two hours before the appointment she called and said an offer had been accepted on the house. Then a few weeks later the house literally next door was listed, I went to see it on the first day of the listing. The next day I did the paper work to make an offer, only to find out a few hours later there was another offer. At my realtor's suggestion I upped my offer by $1,500. It was a tense six hours before my agent called and said they had accepted my offer. And all this is in a town of a little over 100k.

There's no such thing as 'realtor on your side' because he/she profits by a commission on the higher sale price. Wouldn't be surprised if 'something else, off record' was going on there.

Just ask the church member if he/she as ever had to shun or banish another person because the person didn't attend church, questioned the church's beliefs, or didn't act in full accordance with doctrine. Also ask if the leadership ordered it done. You might not get an honest answer, but that person will know the truth, and it should give him/her pause because that's a clear indication of cult-like activity.

No, you combat trolls through inaction. You empower them by getting worked up and reacting.

For once I don't agree. Doing that, in that way, sounds like you don't want to risk touching something because you don't want to deal with the chaos in the aftermath. There has to be a better way. You never fix a problem by ignoring it and hope it goes away.

Tends to go from one extreme to another. Hence, as we see now via this election and its result.

Awesome, you win. Rest easy knowing the law is on your side.

Q. Am I obligated to return or pay for merchandise I never ordered?
A. No. If you receive merchandise that you didnít order, you have a legal right to keep it as a free gift.

Q. Must I notify the seller if I keep unordered merchandise without paying for it?
A. You have no legal obligation to notify the seller.

My translation of the above: You are under no legal obligation to be a decent human being. You are free to be a selfish prick. Congratulations, the law is on your side!

Write to them, letting them know of their mistake. If they respond no worries, at least you'll have it in writing. Bear in mind, I'm an overly honest person, often to my own detriment, so I'm sure someone else will give a different opinion.

Here's an article on the topic.
