Re: The New Convert Thread - MAKE YOUR FIRST POST HERE

Hello everyone.

This is not my first post here, but I haven't posted since late 2006 so I figured I'd re-introduce myself.

What have I missed? Anyone still around from back then?

Oh, and to all you new folk, :welcome: !

This is a tough one. I'd recommend the following: 1. Post in the START HERE forum in the MAKE YOUR FIRST POST HERE thread. This will let the system know that your registration is not a spam account, and also that you are someone who can read and follow suggestions. No, this has nothing to do with yo...

I'm sure you intend no harm, but just to set a proper tone here... Regardless of the specific religion(s) involved, "convert" is something that every adult should be free to do for themselves (though sadly, this is not the case everywhere in the world today). But it is not something that a...

I'm very disappointed in this topic. When I read the thread title, I thought you were going to report that cocaine was contaminating the coffee supply (and asking whether that was a good thing or a bad thing).

Hmm, the six-star version is going to be hard to top. Going well outside my personal experience here... How about this: Seven Star Hangover (*******) - You wake up in an open coffin in a graveyard, surrounded by mounds of freshly dug dirt. It's nighttime, but the air is very warm. You feel strange, ...

it is my belief that if they don't pay taxes, they don't deserve... That is, if you'll pardon the expression, horseshit. The Amish pay all taxes except Social Security tax, and they don't collect Social Security benefits -- except when they're working for non-Amish employers, in which case they DO ...

I might be Jesus too.

I don't think of myself as Jesus, But my bosses are always yelling at me, "Jesus, can't you do anything right?"

So maybe.

I thought the punchline was, "Are we here to play golf, or are we just going to f*&@ around?"

I have my own cake now... Actually, I bought the stuff to make one, so I don't feel deprived of cake anymore, so I don't NEED to make it. (No, it doesn't make sense, but then you don't have the food issues I do.) It makes perfect sense to me. When I had to diet a few years ago (to lose 50 lbs and s...

A chigger (a tiny parasitic mite, not some obscure racial insult, honest) walks into a bar and orders a double rock and rye. "I can't serve you that, you're a tiny parasitic mite (and not some obscure racial insult, honest)! says the bartender. The chigger insists, but the bartender still refus...

I can see Qwerty's point here. Eastern religions introduced the concept to the west (and a lot longer ago, with much more influence on the development of "western" religion, than most people realize), but today the concept is pervasive and not always directly or visibly tied to those easte...

Friends of mine at a small casual SF convention did something very much in the spirit of these ideas. They moved a chair, a small couch (loveseat), and some potted plants and ashtrays from the lobby areas near the elevator, into the elevator. One of them acted as a talk show host, and others as anno...

They nourish the fathomless black currents of my soul.

The person below me lost several waffles while on the Falkland Islands, thus inspiring the famous headline, "British Left Waffles on Falklands."

Hi Maggie! Welcome to the forums. I have a strange feeling that you're going to fit in here extremely well.

By any chance are you connected to Greykell's vast social network down there by Maryland way?

Not very likely.

46 posts in one hour, every one of them infantile and blatantly trollish.

Awaiting the smiting stick.
