I know this is just a silly joke, but Just want to say that I actually prefer the natural look.

Isn't that where she says "Hey, I'm up here"! Then again, maybe not.
Geez, I never considered doing it in public.

anamnesia the antonym of amnesia being unable to forget anything
brentan comments on Oct 20, 2018:
I got a few bouts of ECT about 50 years ago. I forgot lots of the good stuff, still remember lots of the bad. Time is a great help. I can't imagine what it's like to carry everything in one's memory.
I think we are!

SATURNINE.
brentan comments on Oct 20, 2018:
Poor old Saturn. He seems to be both a gloomy god and the creator of the Golden Age. That sounds contradictory but maybe someone has read more about him.

The legal drinking age
brentan comments on Oct 19, 2018:
If you get drunk, you might do something immoral like having sex. If you go to war, you will only kill people and America seems to much prefer violence to sex.
Does slavery legal in islam?
brentan comments on Oct 19, 2018:
It must be because the Koran speaks to how slaves (the people of your right hand) should be treated. Curiously, the Bible focuses more on how the slaves should behave toward their masters.

Some people are going to find this offensive, but it is meant to be provocative and eye opening.

I think Kanye, although intelligent in my estimation, has made himself a 'useful idiot' for Trump.

brentan comments on Oct 19, 2018:
It's semantics.
Do only humans have a soul? What is a soul? Would you ever trade yours for anything?
brentan comments on Oct 19, 2018:
I like the old Biblical idea of the soul. It comes from the Hebrew word nephesh. It mean the complete person, both physical and mental components together. That understanding of soul was in use until recently - for example, 200 souls were lost in the shipwreck.
My kind of guy... ;)

What's happening, Pedro?
Damn .
brentan comments on Oct 18, 2018:
I hope you get back to normal sleep soon. That must be draining and likely could be the cause of other problems. I use a little app on my phone called Simple Radio because it has a sleep feature to turn itself off at any setting up to 90 minutes, I think. If nothing like that would work, maybe talk to the doctor. Anyway, best wishes!
I think this one is common, but I like it.

ASPIRATION Alpha Male?
brentan comments on Oct 18, 2018:
Yes, but why? The old religious thinking was we would just go after selfish pursuits if we stopped believing in God.
33 points away from level 7.
brentan comments on Oct 18, 2018:
Make sure you're sitting down. The feeling you get is better than sex (well, lousy sex). No, the feeling is OK. Stand up if you like. Whatever gets gets through the anticlimax. Then it only takes 40, 000 points to get to the next level. Be patient. That's sure to be exciting.

Can you honestly believe that Pat Robertson, Mr.
brentan comments on Oct 18, 2018:
At this stage, sadly, yes. The man's mind is twisted completely out of shape from decades of justifying the unjustifiable.
Couldn't have said it better myself.

Oh Anna, you'll meet some person and love will blossom and you'll have a complete change of heart.
Horror movies!!
brentan comments on Oct 18, 2018:
Apocalypse Now. "The horror!" Horror has a face, and you must make a friend of horror. Horror and moral terror are your friends. If they are not, then they are enemies to be feared. They are truly enemies.

Trump has turned words into weapons.
brentan comments on Oct 17, 2018:
That's a clever article. It perceives the intention well. I think somebody much smarter than Trump himself has guided him in this strategy. But who? The article doesn't get into it. It concentrates on how to undermine his manipulation of words by way of public media and put a stop it. It is further complicated by the way Trump also cuts through the bullshit of his opposition while he bullshits to beat the band. How did words ever become so important? I guess it's the power of the information age. Words are weapons. The only way to defeat such words are to use truth. Society has been reduced to play with words to subvert values in order to justify the things people do to make a living. It would cost a lot to challenge the status quo with truth.

It is depressing if you look at it that way but in the nature of things few people are the movers and shakers of society. What's so bad about being ordinary?
New research suggests that men can actually tell from a woman's voice when she is menstruating.

Oscar Wilde.

I watched a movie about his life from his time in prison to his death. It is called The Happy Prince with Rupert Everett playing Oscar. A sad film, wonderfully acted.

brentan comments on Oct 17, 2018:
My guess is the age of meritocracy is over for the moment and false values are being adopted and shared to overthrow the old way and give power to people who don't deserve it. Religion is one good way to rise to the top without merit, often without any sincerity and loaded with unverifiable benefits to society.

Excellent - thank you! I suppose the first part is the African version of folk-rock. It's a hybrid that I really enjoy. The only African singer I know is Jusuf N'Dour who was introduced to Europe by Peter Gabriel. I have his album Set in my collection for many years now.

Is god just chaos theory?
brentan comments on Oct 16, 2018:
From what I read, chaos was the Babylonian goddess Tiamat who was killed by the god Marduk. Apparently, the word used for chaos that reigned in the the Bible before creation has the same root as Tiamat but this time it is Jehovah that conquers it.

Is there an evolutionary reason behind homosexuality?
brentan comments on Oct 14, 2018:
My guess is that it is part of an evolutionary process that spreads a spectrum of sexual orientations through our genes as the best way to ensure the survival and growth of the species. I suspect that the genes always know what they are doing but we don’t understand it yet.
I started a new group that was denied.

Members should not be allowed to write posts that simply link to something that is behind a paywall.
brentan comments on Oct 13, 2018:
I think similar. I don't know if it's just plain lazy or lack of ability or confidence to write down opinions. But it sure shunts all the work on to the reader. I'm not sure it should be banned because it's lazy or whatever - maybe if it's illegal. Banning it outright might exclude people completely from contributing to the forum.

I AM NOT CONDONING THIS! but it's interesting. Normalizing Pedophilia [youtube.com]
brentan comments on Oct 13, 2018:
That was a brave talk. I believe she is correct about paedophilia being natural. It has taken a section of society a long time to come to terms with homosexuality and look on it as both legal and natural. We can’t make paedophilia legal because it truly is an offence to children so it must remain illegal. The same goes for consumers of child porn because they are the market for the producers who hurt children making such movies. But the orientation should be viewed, I think, as a location on the spectrum of sexual orientation that is not criminal in itself.
