Did a lot of moving growing up (not an army brat, an executive brat). I spent 10 years in Europe 1959/68. I still speak fluent French. It also gave me a chance to grow up without much church influence. Mom was devout, but not enough to go to a French church. Thankfully, by the time we got to Switzerland, where they had an American church, I was too scepital to be sucked in. Dad was kind of agnostic anyway, so if he skipped church, my sister and I usually didn’t have to go either.

Barnie2years comments on Jul 17, 2019:
He is totally in love with the idea of being a total dictator (or dick actually) with total power to kill anyone who questions his authority. Putin has to eliminate his enemies stealthily, Kim feeds his to dogs or poisons them in foreign airports. Even eliminates close relatives with no consequences. Trump envies that in the worst way!

I belong to a motorcycle group called the Retreads here in the States. We have chapters around the country and in Canada (thus our International designation). You must be 40 to join, but most of our members are closer to double that. I was just on a ride with about 17 of us, we rode around 700 miles in four days, visiting waterfalls in West Virginia and Maryland. Our oldest rider was along (91) and we had three female riders and three co-riders. Two of the ladies were on Can Ams (three wheelers, two front, one back) along with our senior rider. The other was younger and riding a Vulcan 900. We had a great time, as our groups usually do. There is no age limits to enjoying motorcycle riding, just switch to the three wheeler when the legs get wobbly! 😁

Barnie2years comments on Mar 5, 2019:
As with most things, there is not one answer. There are generous, loving people in all three categories, just as there are greedy assholes in all categories. Without research which might be difficult to find, given that most charitable organizations don't ask, nor do they care, what you believe in when you send them money, actual numbers could be hard to come by. Given that hundreds of theist charitable organizations exist for every secular one, it makes it even harder to trace the beliefs of those who donate. I have read of non believers being turned away when they tried to volunteer to work for church related charitable organizations. But my guess these are a aberration rather than a norm.

Many of the major cities of the Middle East were vacation destinations for Europeans in the last century to around the 70’s. Then Muslims factions started fighting each other, governments split and tourists started staying away. Even at the end of the century, Tunisia was probably one of the last destinations until they were hit by terrorist attacks.in 2015 and the Arab Spring uprisings. Now only the brave would holiday in most of those counties capitals.

How would you handle unsolicited touching?
Barnie2years comments on Aug 26, 2018:
I tend towards non violence in reaction to non violence. Attempted rape should solicit defense with every weapon or means at your disposal. Being cornered and feeling threatened, same. In a public place, being touched inappropriately; first be sure it was deliberate. I assume from what you described it was obviously not accidental. Your response, letting him know it was wrong was the first step. Any further contact deserves a full verbal assault and make a scene. Point him out to management, get others involved. Once you move to physical assault for something that is going to be his word against yours, you may find yourself having legal issues. I have, in my life, been approached and lightly groped by gay men. They were told in no uncertain terms that there was no interest and to back off. All of them did just that.

I was listening to part of this on the way home this morning. This plague of addiction is going to take a lot of time, money and effort to get under control. I have had at least two family members, my cousins kids die, either from suicide or overdose suicide. I’ve also had an ex-cop basically wonder why the government spends all this money keeping junkies alive, why not just let them die? My guess is, he would feel differently if it was his daughter that had gotten addicted.

How Has Your Sexual Libido Changed As You Have Aged?
Barnie2years comments on May 12, 2018:
I was very sexual in my younger days, had my share of fun, both married and out. After my last marriage to a woman who made sex with me seem like a burden that she had to deal with a couple of times a month, it hasn't been the same. I want LOVE to be turned on, and that is kind of hard when I can barely get a dinner date. I was always very open about sexuality, have no real hangups when it comes to normal body fluids. I have always put my partner's pleasure ahead of mine. Masturbation is fine to keep the prostate in shape, but I sure do miss the smell, feel, taste and warmth of a female human body next to mine! ;-(.

Why do men save badly worn-out clothes?
Barnie2years comments on Feb 2, 2019:
I will wear stuff until it falls apart because I like them and much of the new clothes don’t feel or fit as nice. I have an old tattered flannel shirt, was my dad’s and passed on to me. The collar is close to falling off, so I only wear it around the house (most of the time) or to walk the dog. But it is warm, has two nice pockets, and fits comfortable. If the collar goes, I might just try to customize it into a neru collar with no wings! ? I generally take pretty good care of my clothing. Much of what is in my closet is ten to twenty years old and look fine; colors not faded, no holes, and still fit.

Spend a lot of time inhaling the steam and vapors from the soup. That should help too. I usually don't have much of an appetite, so soup fills the bill, though I rarely make my own. Did make a couple of gallons of cabbage and sausage soup earlier this year though. Thankfully I rarely get sick. For the 42 years I worked in the public sector, I hardly ever took sick days. Loads of high dosage vitamin C (8 grams or more a day) as soon as I felt something coming on, rarely had more than a day or two before things improved.

Dealing with grief
Barnie2years comments on Dec 30, 2018:
Everyone deals with grief in their own way, regardless of what you believe in or don't believe. I know people who on the loss of a family member, are inconsolable and never fully recover, and yet spout the "better place, will see them in heaven, they are with other family members" mantra, while obviously not fully believing it. I don't believe I will ever see my dad, grandparents, first born child or any one else that dies again. I can tell you, my way of dealing with grief is the remember the good things that person accomplished in life, the happy times we may have had, the less than wonderful times as well. In the case of my infant son, that good time was only less than a year, but he had cancer, so his last 6 months of suffering made his death seem like a release from that. I find that rather than mourn their death, I prefer to celebrate their life and keep their memories alive without condemning myself to misery. Life is precious and short and should be lived while you are alive. Long term grief is not honoring those who pass, but killing your own life instead. Just how I handle it. As I said at the beginning, everyone deals with death on their own way.

Barnie2years comments on Apr 3, 2018:
Blasphemy has less to do with the physics of the universe and more to do with the fear of insignificance. If people are permitted to mock or defame the religious uber being of whatever religion happens to dominate the culture, it demeans the greatness of that entity. And, since there is no such thing as a god to meet out punishment, the only way to instill fear and obedience in the flock is for the human believers in that diety to punish the maligner, usually physically and in a horrible manner so as to scare the rest of the population into quiet submission to the leaders of that relgion. In areas of the world that are wracked by poverty and violence, it is even more important for them to fear not believing, as they might be less willing to accept their lot and fight against the ruling, supposedly god chosen leaders.

Barnie2years comments on Aug 10, 2018:
Feel luck. My ex just uses me when she needs help with something, (her son, dog, house computer) but if we are together treats me like I have leprosy and keeps a circle of safety around me. That was one of the issues when we were married: I was crazy about her, she treated sex like it was some burden that she needed to accept a few times a month to keep me from being frustrated. She has no other real friends, she is not an easy person to get along with, and I have nothing better to do, so we help each other out. She has taken me to medical appointments when I was not allowed to drive and watches my dog (her dog’s pup) if I have to be away. But those are the only benefits.

Impossible relationship
Barnie2years comments on Aug 3, 2018:
The problem I see is not only do you have to overcome the differences between the two of you, but also deal with a religious family dynamic. First, the believer probably has to be a fairly liberated believer. If they are weekly attenders of church, bible studies and other church functions and you choose not to go at all, it could be an issue. As a non believer, are you OK with your children being baptized? Will you attend the service? Will you go to holiday services with their family; church weddings and funerals? Is your partner going to be all right with going to all these events on their own if you are not willing to spend time in that environment? My first and second wife were not Atheists, but neither were they really church going people, mainly holidays and events. I was willing to go for certain activities to keep family harmony. Besides, the more times I have been in church, the more it reinforces how silly the whole thing is, so I had no fear of being converted! ?

Barnie2years comments on Aug 29, 2018:
Golf is a game of self mental control. Even if you are playing in a group, how you play is determined by your own mindset. Each time you step up to the ball, no matter how well you hit it the the last time, how well your game has gone to that moment, your immediate concentration will determine how you you hit the ball this time. Your stance, the lie of the ball, the depth of the grass, the club you chose, your swing fulcrum, the power of your swing, movement of your body, ability to focus on your ball through the entire swing. So many points at which a minor error can severely affect the flight of that ball. Even on the green, the slope of the green, the height and texture of the grass, the moisture on the grass have to be taken into account. It is like playing chess against nature, with every move against a different opponent. ?⛳️

Because Trump and the Trumptards have no respect for the Constitution, the rule of law nor the Republican Party except as it benefits them.

When I hang around a lot of married people, or even more so, when I talk to each of them separately, I find my years of living single to be not all that bad.
Mourning a death
Barnie2years comments on Apr 16, 2018:
I have found most religious people I know seem to suffer as much, probably more than I do. I consider myself a realist. Every thing that lives dies. No one escapes. I admire their lives well lived, sad if they are short (lost my first son at 15 months old), grateful if they are long (my father died 3 years ago at 90), and happy for the time I got to spend with them. I may miss them, but I accept that life is fleeting and those alive carry on.

Money talks, poor people walk. There have been very few times in human evolution where there was anything even close to wealth sharing. The closest I can think of was in the aftermath of WW II, when the wealthy were paying close to 90% tax and manpower shortages and the devastation of much of the world caused wages to provide a high standard of living for the working class here in the USA. But it didn’t last, because greed is a driving factor in the human psyche and those who have the most always want more. And as they accumulate wealth, they accumulate power to control their governments, until you have a jackass wealthy con man gets elected president (or in your case, prime minister) and at some point those at the bottom rise up and all hell breaks loose. And when the dust settles, another group of thieves takes over without people even noticing (just look at the French Revolution).
Trump says he's considering attending Russia's May Day parade | TheHill

He and Putin can jerk each other off while the big missiles go by! His daddy must have never taken the poor boy to parades when he was a kid.

They have a paper trail and witnesses at every caucus, the voters themselves. As goofy as it is, it would be one of the hardest to rig.

I could binge watch John Oliver daily. So insightful and well researched, but sprinkled with comedy that makes it a little easier to digest! 🤣

Barnie2years comments on Sep 3, 2019:
You are old enough to make your own decisions on who you need to associate with. If it makes you uncomfortable being around him and the gathering is going to be intimate enough that you cannot get far enough away from him to be comfortable, don't go and make another time to spend with your mom and sister when he isn't there. Buy the food for the next cookout and make it just about your immediate family. Some things are not worth the discomfort, one of them is a free meal! LOL

I say it depends on how much you love the gal. But once you take the step she requires, you are going to have to bow to many further religious conditions such as your child's baptism, catechisms, holiday mass, etc. Unless you have a real strong belief that this is a once and done deal, you better plan on faking the God thing for the rest of your married life.

When to switch primarily identifying as an Agnostic to Atheist?
Barnie2years comments on Sep 17, 2018:
I called myself an Agnostic for a large part of my life. I didn’t believe in god, and thought the Bible was at best a badly written fictional novel, loosely based on ancien Middle Eastern history. But there were things that happened in my life that random just couldn’t seem to explain. I would call it destiny, but destiny would need a controller, which would lead back to a god, which I couldn’t justify as existing. I also considered Atheists to be the “fundamentalists” of non believers, pushing their non belief on others as Evangelicals pushed Christianity. Then I heard about the chaos theory, which explained things that happened that seemed to not be random, without involving a deity to run things. This, a better understanding of what Atheism is and a more militant view of Christian privilege, allowed me to quite proudly call myself an Atheist! ?
