I came to the conclusion that the stories associated with Christianity were all nonsense at the age of 12. I continued in the Methodist Church for social reasons until the age of 18. I was almost always elected President of the Methodist Youth Fellowship, and I was on the Church board of directors. When I went to college, I had no more motivation to be involved in religion. I met a beautiful highly-motivated atheist woman when I was 22. We had 16 fantastic years together before she passed away. My second wife was not religious when I met her, but she became religious for social reasons. I've been trying to get divorced from her for 5 years. I've had a Catholic girlfriend for the past 3.5 years, and we get along great. She doesn't try to convert me, and I don't try to convert her.

To keep people engaged, you have to push their buttons. You can make them laugh, but that doesn't last long. You can make them cry, but they get immune to it. Anger is the think that can be easily stoked for a long period of time. Facebook takes advantage of it. Fox News takes advantage of it. MSNBC and CNN take advantage of it. The same formula is used by all of them.

I spent 9 years in academia completing a PhD, then another 14 years at tech companies working with scientists and engineers. I would say (as a group) the scientists and engineers are more honest than the average person, but those who choose to feed at the government trough have perverse incentives in place to keep the grant money coming in, so those are the most likely to fudge data and omit inconvenient results. They are also the group most likely to throw in the popular buzzwords at the time in order to impress those doling out grant money.

Go to your nearest calendar store and check out SI's weekly swimsuit calendar. One week: The model weighs 110 pounds. Next week: The model weights 250 pounds. Next week: The model weighs 110 pounds. Next week: The model weights 250 pounds. Next week: The model weighs 110 pounds. Next week: The model weights 250 pounds. If they had any business sense, they would make a calendar full of 110 pound models, and a calendar full of 250 pounds models. They would then realize their calendar with 110 pound models sells 100 times more than their calendar with 250 pound models, and stop with the morbidly obese female swimsuit models altogether.

I can introduce you to multiple families with high school educations who work in blue collar jobs who have saved more than $1,000,000 for retirement. All it takes is the discipline to spend less than you earn and put that money to work in the stock market. They will live much more comfortably in retirement than those who sit around waiting for government handouts.

The photo is what he MIGHT look like from Mary's DNA. The other half of his DNA would have come from God, and nobody has ever sequenced God's DNA. He may have been green with purple polka dots for all we know.

"Attacked Black Troops on British Soil" is not a very accurate description of what transpired: That evening in 1943, black troops and white locals were stretching out “drinking-up time” in a pub at the end of the evening. Words were exchanged, and military police arrived and tried to arrest Private Eugene Nunn for not wearing the proper uniform. But they faced new solidarities: a white British soldier challenged the military police: “Why do you want to arrest them? They’re not doing anything or bothering anybody.” The incident escalated into a fist fight and the military police were beaten back. When they returned with reinforcements to meet the group, now returning to camp, a battle developed in the street. Shots were fired, and Crossland died with a bullet in his back. Black GIs would drink in mixed company in British pubs, to the horror of the white US Army authorities. brizzlebornandbred When rumours spread at the camp that black GIs had been shot, scores of men formed a crowd, some carrying rifles. The arrival at around midnight of more military police with a machine gun-equipped vehicle convinced many of the black soldiers that the police intended to kill them – and they drew rifles from the stores. Some barricaded themselves into the base, others tore off back into town, leading to running shooting battles in the streets. Many of the black American troop standing up to the military police that febrile night were no doubt influenced by news filtering through of race riots in Detroit on June 20, where defenceless black men were attacked by racist police, responsible for the deaths of 17 of the 25 African-Americans killed.

The Obama strategy was to take a city away from them and drive them on to the next city, so we were in a never-ending war of taking one city after another. The Trump-Mattis strategy is to surround the city, let no one excape, and kill every single one of the ISIS fighters. That seems to be working quite well.

This is a real tough one. I don't believe Google/Facebook/Amazon are engaging in the same type of activities as Standard Oil was in the late 19th century. It's a very different world. You create the best search tool, and everyone will use it. You create the best social media site, and everyone will use it. You create the best online shopping site, and everyone will use it. If they break them up, people will probably all gravitate to the best portion of what is left over after the Google breakup, the Facebook breakup, and the Amazon breakup.
