My direction in life -- to live well and die happy -- whenever that may come.
I enjoy good company, a little wine, whisky or beer, decent food and whenever possible, sunshine.
Hobbies are walking and talking with my dog , reading, contemplating the philosophy of life, relaxing on my boat, deep sea fishing and deciding if I have enough 'stuff' to write a novel.

Why do so many Americans (as they call themselves) despise the word "immigration"? Trump supporters ...
ShadowAmicus comments on Jun 22, 2019:
Way back in time when Russia inveaded Afghanistan (1979-89) America decided it would be a good idea to arm the Taliban resistance fighters ... seemed like a good idea at the time. Since then the whole fundamental muslim terrorist threat has been a shit studded snowball rolling downhill and steadily growing. Bits of the threat get knocked off, only to rise again elsewhere....and it will not go away ... ever ... because terrorism thrives on poverty and suppression.
Man rushes through security and injures 5 TSA agents at Phoenix airport, authorities say - CNN
ShadowAmicus comments on Jun 22, 2019:
looks like the guy could get a trial at american football. If you are a terrorist, that is not the point you want to attack - the aim is to kill and maim a crowd, or take down an aircraft in flight - maybe ransom passengers, but the latter idea seems to be out of favour. This guy had no weapon and no idea of what he was doing - there was never any real danger, no chance he could get past everyone, run down the corridors, leap into a plane and steal it - what was he trying to do????

ShadowAmicus comments on Jun 22, 2019:
In early books adopted into the bible the word Jesus used for church was the Greek word “ekklēsia”. The same word is used for when a gathering of citizens are called from their homes into a public place for an assembly. If you are thinking of some sort of assembly / party / meeting of like minded agnostics I'm in ... but if you plan some sort of organisation with leader, heirarchy, rules and codes - not for me. I follow no god, no person, no rules but my own.(generally aligned to polite society)

Give me your best "what the fuck" religion moment!
ShadowAmicus comments on Jun 20, 2019:
I was a choirboy, attending 3 churches every Sunday, which took up most of the day - mum and dad liked having 'time alone'. When I was 11 the vicar sermonised about the church needing more money for repairs. I was old enough then to realise that he drove around in a big Rover car, while almost everyone in our village used a bicycle and buses.. that the church owned farms all around the area and lots of other land and buildings. Despite these assets they were asking for more money from everyone in the village who had very little to give. That was when I began questioning the church and within a year cut all ties .... coincidentally it was about that time I became interested in original sin.

I did not watch this - I have watched men and women being killed and the images are as fresh in my mind as those times long ago. It is only a few hundred years ago this happened across europe and america. and, as here, with education it will change in Afghanistan and other lands .... education means people question fanaticism. Any regime that regards women as disposable goods and chattels is unacceptable to me

ShadowAmicus comments on Jun 18, 2019:
I do not hate religion, or religious people. One of my closest friends was an army pastor (catholic himself) and we have discussions on morality, ethics, cricket, rugby, horse riding, cooking - usual discourse between adults apart from sex (taboo for catholics). The prescence of god at a battle? If soldiers were helped to get through it by believing in a god - I am fine with it. That both sides claim gods support is enough evidence for me to know he does not exist.

Don't see why not, unless evidence shows it is detrimental to health (of the eater) Over the years I have kissed away plenty of blood, licked away at ladies body parts, eaten grubs, and all sorts of indeterminably sourced meat - - am ok with trying a human steak - maybe go medium to well done rather than rare

Is it too much to expect one man to be satisfied with one woman?
ShadowAmicus comments on Jun 17, 2019:
