Hi there, I'm new here. Don't quite know what to expect.
Taladad comments on May 24, 2018:
I think you'll find some interesting questions asked, some nice discussions with some nice people, an occasional respectful difference of opinions...and I've only been here since yesterday!! PS. That's a beautiful owl.
Breastfeeding shaming? Any thoughts ?
Taladad comments on May 24, 2018:
Do not concern yourself with those ignorant, narrow minded bigots who would shame breast feeding in public. There is nothing more natural and beautiful than a mother nursing a child.
Do nerds attract other nerds? Am I missing something? Is there a nerd code I don't know about? Why ...
Taladad comments on May 23, 2018:
I think any time you find common interests with someone, that is an attraction. However, not to generalize, but I'm not so sure how much nerds would value romance. Typically I would imagine them to be not so experienced with the opposite sex. I could be wrong, but then I'm not a nerd.
What are some of your favorite Atheist/Skeptic/Secular podcasts?

Does daytime cannabis use cause insomnia at night?
Taladad comments on May 23, 2018:
Sativa WILL keep you awake at night. Indica will help you to sleep. That's the difference in the strains.

NFL expected to approve policy requiring players stand for anthem [thehill.com]
Taladad comments on May 23, 2018:
The NFL just doesn't get it. This is not about the National Anthem or our flag. This is a protest against unbridled violence against minorities in this country. I'd love to see the NFLPA stage a complete walkout protest on opening day to teach the NFL a lesson.
So. This is my first divorce. From a narcissist. From a man who cheated on me. From a man I believed...
Taladad comments on May 23, 2018:
I think it depends on how functional and healthy or dysfunctional the relationship was for you. It will take some time and eventually take its place in your personal history, but in the meantime, I think you should read about what it is that you're going through. The book that helped me the most after my divorce, and that I can highly recommend was, "You Don't Have To Suffer...A Handbook for moving Beyond Life's Crises" by Judy Tatelbaum. This book helped me immensely. You're not just along for the emotional ride. Read and take control of your life and your emotions. Good luck!
Is Reality Just a Figment of Our Imagination?
Taladad comments on May 23, 2018:
No, while I'm sure there are illusions that can confuse us, I think reality is aptly named.
What is number one on your bucket list? No matter how crazy. Mine is to own the NFL Raiders ...
Taladad comments on May 23, 2018:
I recently learned through DNA testing that I am a direct descendant of King Henry III of England. I have always wanted to go to England and tour the castles. Now I have all the more reason to do that. I also learned that King Henry III was responsible for the construction of Westminster Abbey, and he is buried there with a bronze statue of him laying on top of his coffin. I would like to see that too and feel the connection.
If you could marry any fictional character, who would it be and why ?
Taladad comments on May 23, 2018:
Barbara Eden in I Dream of Jeannie...because she's stunningly beautiful, extremely loyal, and with her powers, ANYTHING is possible. Life could be fun, easy, and extremely romantic.
Are humans innately theists?
Taladad comments on May 23, 2018:
No. We're born with absolutely no belief system at all, until some delusional adult indoctrinates us with their superstitions and fears.
I just tried mindful meditation for the very first time. Is this what normal is supposed to feel ...
Taladad comments on May 23, 2018:
Meditation is a good habit to get into. I find it really calms, relaxes, and centers me. And sometimes I fall asleep while meditating, but that's ok too.
Change your mind?
Taladad comments on May 23, 2018:
Hell no on the politics question, and no on the 'supernatural'...still waiting.
When is no evidence, evidence? When proving a negative! Does this mean that atheism is evidence ...
Taladad comments on May 23, 2018:
No evidence is only evidence that something is missing. The burden of proof is on the person making the claim. Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence.

This is me at Skip Barber's professional race driving school in CA. I won a national contest when I worked for Lexus. This was the prize, and loads of fun.

This is the view of Mount Princeton from my deck. It's a little over 14,000 ft in elevation and rises 6,000 feet above the surrounding area. It's part of the Continental Divide.
