I don't know...I never had to deal with a mother in law.
Where would you live?
DUCHESSA comments on Feb 1, 2018:
On a mountain side, in upstate NY.....
Do you drive
DUCHESSA comments on Feb 1, 2018:
Trust me, those drivers that "drive pressing the brakes" infuriate me all the way to Timbuktu. They are annoying and prone to cause an accident.
It appears that all of us here have something in common. That is, going against the main stream and ...
DUCHESSA comments on Feb 1, 2018:
You can say that again. We are accused of the most stupid things ever....,like suffering arthritis / no finding a mate or a good job as punishment for not believing in god.
Triggered! It doesn't happen often anymore but every now and then someone religious will show up in ...
DUCHESSA comments on Feb 1, 2018:

DUCHESSA comments on Feb 1, 2018:
Your mom doesn't want you to meet a girl and settle down....no, what she wants is to become a grandmother...to have somebody (kid) to mold exactly as she thinks is OK. I had a "mommy" like yours....I never gave into her tricky ways....in fact, I put thousands of miles between her and myself.
Has anyone else ever wondered why today's mainstream youth seems so insipid. While I'm aware that ...
DUCHESSA comments on Feb 1, 2018:
The big guys want insipid people....and they do everything possible to achieve such goal. Is not " that" difficult. Mess up one or two generations (drugs / bad nutrition / horrid schooling...) and the next ones will follow. One could say "it becomes genetic".
Have you ever been told you look like someone famous?
DUCHESSA comments on Jan 31, 2018:

DUCHESSA comments on Jan 31, 2018:
She is a bully and a toxic person. Stay out of her way and find another job as soon as possible...or go above her and report her to her superior. I am sure there are others in your job that will do as well. You are not the first person she messes with. No, nope.
Is it "shallow" to care about looks when it comes to picking a partner?
DUCHESSA comments on Jan 31, 2018:
Physical attraction is part of the package.... now, if you only date "looks" ....then, indeed, is shallow.
Suspected this would eventually happen, but it was still disappointing; was dumped because my lack ...
DUCHESSA comments on Jan 31, 2018:
I wouldn't even share a coffee with a guy who believes in god.
I'm a good man...you're a good woman...what's the problem? Why are we all struggling so hard with ...
DUCHESSA comments on Jan 31, 2018:
Fear? What do you do when you feel "that" person may be approaching you to make fun of you? This used to be my feeling when in my early 20s. )(no without reason). I never trusted the person was honestly attracted. When I met the guy who became my husband...it took about six months before I accepted to go out with him for the firdt time..
Do you find learning new things exhilarating or do you feel like learning is a tedious chore?

What’s a petty reason you won’t date a man/woman?
DUCHESSA comments on Jan 31, 2018:
The thing is what seems petty to you is extremely important to the other person.

I don't confuse book learning with intelligence, they go well together, are not mutually exclusive ...
DUCHESSA comments on Jan 31, 2018:
A person is born -or not- intelligent. Book learning is acquired.....but intelligence is necessary to acquire knowledge. Get a person with an IQ of 40 and he / she won't to be able to understand a grammar school book. No, intelligence and book-learning are not the same and those who negate this truth need a shrink.
Do any of you have kids in grade school? Highschool? I do. And, they came home telling that they are...
DUCHESSA comments on Jan 31, 2018:

I never wanted to have kids, is that weird?
DUCHESSA comments on Jan 30, 2018:
No, is not. I never wanted kids (I don't have kids) and I knew this since I was a preteen. BTW, I has been brandised with every name you can imagine...from savage to bad woman. A friend asked what I would do if my hubby wanted kids....and I told her that a man who wanted to be a father would never be my husband.

DUCHESSA comments on Jan 30, 2018:
I changed schools in the middle of my last HS year...and I went through h..l the first three weeks, Two male students...and one female...decided to call me ugly, four eyes, insignificant...until the day one of those boys said to me "You are the school's ugliest girl." I grabbed the textbook on my desk and I smacked it on his face....IN FRONT OF THE ENTIRE CLASS. I was never insulted again.
Who is the better parent?
DUCHESSA comments on Jan 29, 2018:
The courts should allow the kids to decide. Yes, even a three y/o kids "knows".
I thought to share this with everyone here. It is a London Bus
DUCHESSA comments on Jan 29, 2018:
Is a very old propaganda; probably about five+ years old. I saw similar advertising in Buenos Aires; the message was written in the subway cars (inside)
Who is the better parent?
DUCHESSA comments on Jan 29, 2018:
IMHO, the courts gives the kids to the mother for something that is known as "tradition". I don't doubt in the past the courts wanted the man to be free to date / marry again....while the same system saw the women as individuals who shouldn't think about a second chance in life....and having to take care of the kids was a great way to reduce said chance to a minimum. No wonder Kramer vs. Kramer was so successful.
I just became a level SIX! SIX! SIX! Super atheist.

In Argentina (Posadas Hosp.) a group of neurosurgeons and professionals in related fields perform a localized minor intervention that in certain cases of Parkinson the patients recovers 100%. This procedure is not for all Parkinson patients.....A friend's mother's hands were "dancing non-stop"(as she described the condition). Today, after two years from the time of the treatment, her hands don't dance anymore.

Whats your opinion of the Bible?
DUCHESSA comments on Jan 29, 2018:
Bad and poorly written books....also... have a great use; they help -by comparison- to recognize the good literature from the junk. The bible is ine of those bad books.

DUCHESSA comments on Jan 29, 2018:
But said Platinum Rule would not be doing what you think is correct but what they want....so, no PR in my book.

DUCHESSA comments on Jan 29, 2018:
In my years as an Atheist -all my life- I never encountered one non-believer trying to convert a person.
A lot of angry and/or uneducated atheists around here...
DUCHESSA comments on Jan 29, 2018:
Somehow you sound like a believer who is not only angry but needs to let the world know you are.

Household Chores
DUCHESSA comments on Jan 28, 2018:
Many years ago I received a kick on my back (gym) and any chore that requires I bend forward (making the bed / sweeping the floor....) is still painful....so, I bought a robovac (I named Eloise) to sweep for me. I wish they invent one to make the bed.

Assuming you are out of school, does continuing to learn matter to you? If so, what do you do to ...
DUCHESSA comments on Jan 28, 2018:
Learning never stops....unless your brain only repeats what others tell you and you don't analyze the info. received. Attending conferences, taking those classes you never had the time for while working. Discussing and reasoning every bit of info, that falls on your hands. My students knew they have to come to class with answers that were discussed among themselves several times over.
How many want to bet the Evangelicals blame the flu on gay people and liberals?

Frustrated
DUCHESSA comments on Jan 25, 2018:
Why should you be "less intolerant"? As long as you don't create a mess (I do) when they try to talk you into religion you should be as intolerant as you feel. You have exactly the same right to feel uncomfortable and frustrated as anybody else....and trust me, the believers are champions at feeling offended when things do not as they want.
Anybody from lower Westchester county, NY who think starting an A/A group will be great?

DUCHESSA comments on Jan 25, 2018:
I guess you mean "Atheist groups".....since Atheist curches will be an oxymoron.
When you say "I love you", what does that mean? I am not referring to romantic love.
DUCHESSA comments on Jan 25, 2018:
Two things: When faced with this question I wish the English language had the "Te quiero" (relative / friend) and the "Te amo" ( I love you) as Spanish does. The second thing: When I say "I love you" to a person it doesn't mean he / she is AS important AS I am but is important TO me.....that his / her values and behavior are what I seek in those with whom I share my life.
“A penny saved is a penny earned.” How do you save or earn extra pennies?
DUCHESSA comments on Jan 25, 2018:
I shut off the lights in the rooms when I am not in that area, I set the TV timer to 45 mins. instead of 90 mins., I recycle all my water bottles... The dollar stores come handy to get all those things that costs you three times more at the regular stores: Windshield fluid, engine oil, brand name hair / shampoo / conditioner, every day dishes and coffee mugs, brand name laundry detergent / softener...and a lot more.

Mississippi Bill Would Force Teachers to Recite the Ten Commandments Every Day – Friendly Atheist
DUCHESSA comments on Jan 25, 2018:
What are they planning to gain? To eliminate homosexuality, stop women from having abortions, glorify incest and rape, keep women at home, HITLERIZE people with disabilities, PURIFY a race that is mixed from day one, to twist education to make the common people even more ignorant.....or, simply, "to manipulate society"?

DUCHESSA comments on Jan 24, 2018:
It was always difficult for me to make friends....in particular because my Atheism....but since the arrival of Internet and years later my retirement... it have been even more complicated. So, I force myself to do things that will take me away from the puter....like going to the comm. center to read and to knit with the old believers (lol) and to join a book club (local library). Next step will be re-taking the learning of languages.
