MEN: What would your reason be for asking a woman what she does for a living, upon meeting her?

Moravian comments on May 4, 2019:
We were spreading the ashes of my partners late father in a little ceremony at a beach in S.W. Scotland where he was evacuated to during WW2. We parked our car about 100m from the beach and as we walked to it a cat appeared from a nearby wood mewing loudly and accompanied us. It stayed with us during the short ceremony and back to the car park afterwards then just walked away and disappeared from view. If I believed in reincarnation there would be no doubt that the man had returned as a cat. Ironically during life he hated cats.

Journalist killed this year
Moravian comments on May 4, 2019:
The latest was Lyra Mckee in Northern Ireland. She may have been just unlucky or she may have been targeted . Difficult to say. The killing of Marie Colvin was definitely murder by the Syrian Govt. She new that if she sent a radio message from an area that the govt forces were targeting they could pinpoint her position but she went ahead anyway. The house she was in was destroyed and she was killed. Some very brave people reporting the news from flashpoints in the world.

Moravian comments on May 4, 2019:
A common question to a learner is "If you are following a car and the left indicator is flashing what does that tell you". The correct answer is " It tells me that the indicator lights on the car are working". Roundabouts are so rare in the USA that he maybe didn't know what the proper procedure was.

Are You one of the lucky ones not to have been abused when a baby by having your penis circumcised ...
Moravian comments on May 3, 2019:
Muslims also circumcise and I find it ironic that followers of the Abrahamic religions believe that god made man in his image but didn't quite get it right so alterations are required. On the other side of the coin around 1.3 in 100,000 men in the UK develop penis cancer and require full or partial penis amputation. The cancer is usually due to poor hygiene in uncircumcised men.

Moravian comments on May 3, 2019:

How comfortable are you with the word "Atheist" ?
Moravian comments on May 3, 2019:
i too dislike the word. It implies that being a theist is the norm. Certainly in the UK non believers are in the majority so the word should not be used.

Moravian comments on May 2, 2019:
But how many of the homeless are Christians. I remember years ago interviewing a guy for a managers job. I asked him if I could arrange hotel accommodation for him and he said No don't bother I am Jehova's Witness and I just go along to the local church and someone will put me up for the night. They look after their own.

Moravian comments on Apr 29, 2019:
The law of blasphemy is used by totalitarian govts as a control measure. It is a sign of civilisation when a country abolishes this ridiculous law. It is just over 300 years ago that a young man was hanged for blasphemy in Edinburgh and the law was abolished ages ago but although not used in Ireland it was only abolished recently. The answer is avoid living in a theocracy if at all possible and make sure that politics and religion are kept separate at all costs.

If this can be shown to voters she nay attract more but I cannot see hard line unionists changing their minds. I am not hopeful of independence any time soon
