CUNNILINGUS: cun-ni-lin-gus.
brentan comments on Aug 13, 2018:
A word well known to cunning linguists.
Cable, Dish, Antenna, or Streaming? How do you watch TV.
brentan comments on Aug 13, 2018:
Streaming on an android box. It works well except for live TV.
Pro-Lifer's next target......
brentan comments on Aug 12, 2018:
The modern-day Onan, shirking his responsibilities (no, 'shirking your responsibilites' is not a euphemism for jerking yourself off).
I just joined but so far , I think I'm going to like it.
brentan comments on Aug 12, 2018:
Hi. Welcome. I think you'll like it here. There's enough like-minded people to give a sense of kinship, and enough debate to stop it becoming an echo chamber.
What is your favorite breakfast cereal?
brentan comments on Aug 12, 2018:
Muesli.
Lady Gaga told me I dress weird.
brentan comments on Aug 12, 2018:
I would listen to her - she would know.
I wrote this in response to those that ask me "what if science is wrong?
brentan comments on Aug 12, 2018:
I think we need science and spirituality. I definitely think we should dump the Judeo-Christian patriarchal god and go for something more like Buddhism. Maybe use Buddhism to wean us away from religion and just think on a cosmic level instead of focusing on salvation. I see my society hurting because it has abandoned the old beliefs and left stumbling around in the dark. I think they are stumbling around in the dark looking for meaning but no new meaning has been articulated yet that has the authority religion used to have.
Dating age range.
brentan comments on Aug 12, 2018:
I do. I would like to meet someone ten years-ish younger than me. Mind you, I can't afford to be very choosey.
Two kids were hanging out with me and my dog in the park.
brentan comments on Aug 12, 2018:
That was a case of leading the witness but it could have gone very badly.
ESOTERIC: es-o-ter-ic.
brentan comments on Aug 12, 2018:
I would love to belong to an esoteric group, like the ancient mystery schools. I suppose the modern equivalent is something like the Freemasons.
Made this meme because it’s a good reminder to dive deeply.

Arrest those pervs immediately!
How have you changed the weakneses your mental illness gave you into strengths?
brentan comments on Aug 12, 2018:
I think by persevering. Being too stubborn to go under.
Man, this depression is getting to me.
brentan comments on Aug 12, 2018:
I wish you well. I've experienced it, along with a failed suicide attempt, which I've always been grateful was a failure. All I know, from my own case, is that it can go. Medical knowledge is building all the time. I can't recommend exercise highly enough. Walking is so good for the mind as well as the body. But who wants to put in the effort when they're depressed? Please force yourself to help yourself. If you can, take a look at Jordon Peterson's 12 Rules For Life, Rule 2, 'Treat yourself like someone you are responsible for helping'.
i just discovered that i'm host to a group that i didn't found.

It raises my spirits. Seriously, the shit some people know. Right now it's The Language Of Creation by Matthieu Pageau. I don't know what I would do without these people.

Whatever happened to 'boys will be boys'?
Tory Scum !
brentan comments on Aug 11, 2018:
It is an appalling show of incompetence and must thoroughly destroy any confidence the public would hope to have in their leaders. If it's any consolation, the only thing that makes British politicians look more incompetent than some of their counterparts everywhere else is the complexity of their problem and the time limit imposed to resolve it.
Always let the lord guide you
brentan comments on Aug 11, 2018:
I'm disappointed with that woman. She looks so nice.
Good decision
brentan comments on Aug 11, 2018:
Even though we're not strictly talking about wine, I think it was a case of 'in vino veritas'. Leaving aside all that, it's good to see people making sound decisions.
Is empathy the root of human morality ?
brentan comments on Aug 11, 2018:
I think it began as a transaction which was not just an agreement to support each other in need, but also as an investment in the future in the sense of insurance against need. If so, that's a hell of a concept for a cave-dweller to ideate. It's astonishing to think how that idea, which I think is akin to barter, reached its apotheosis over time in the Christian notion of a man-god investing in his own death to buy himself a better position in heaven and support and save all mankind in the process.
Jesus is the way...
brentan comments on Aug 11, 2018:
That's a really cute bum. She's nice too.

brentan comments on Aug 11, 2018:
Hi. Welcome to the forum. It doesn't take long to get the hang of it.
Why do humans form friendships?
brentan comments on Aug 11, 2018:
Those are great questions. I had an idealistic understanding of friendship. Maybe like blood-brothers. A bond, while not as strong as an ideal loyalty in marriage, but quite strong. If those days ever existed, I think they are gone. Friendship might simply reduce (or already has) into groups who use each other for recreation without bonds, to avoid solitary entertainment.
Further proof that Buddhism is more about mindfulness and taking personal responsibility and not ...
brentan comments on Aug 11, 2018:
I never heard of that treatment. I had to look it up. It looks useful for everyone, not just the mentally ill.
What is something that is absolutely worth the money? (I say, TP, never buy the cheap stuff)
brentan comments on Aug 11, 2018:
Arm and Hammer every time.
I know I get "testy", "annoyed", "insulted" & generally intolerant of some folks here.
brentan comments on Aug 11, 2018:
Little specks irritating the heck out of other little specks.
Have you ever been devastated by a lie?
brentan comments on Aug 11, 2018:
I think betrayal lies at the heart of it. Good old Dante put betrayers in the lowest circle of Hell.

brentan comments on Aug 11, 2018:
Super piece of music! Your poem captures the spirit of what's happening very well.
They Are All Assholes.
brentan comments on Aug 11, 2018:
I don't believe it was ever any different. These guys understand that they live in a culture that just doesn't care, as Melania pointed out so poetically.
Let's talk about the other side of the "Shithole Country" debate.
brentan comments on Aug 11, 2018:
What happened to Sweden? It's usually the trio of Norway, Sweden and Denmark.
Well here I am sitting the bar, drinking a cold one.
brentan comments on Aug 11, 2018:
Hello and welcome. I hope you find the topics interesting.
If I should slip.
brentan comments on Aug 11, 2018:
Super poem. I love the basic premise of problematic life and then taken in stages through slip, trip and fall. Very clever. But more than clever, heart-felt, beautifully worded and constructed.
Discussion Ideas for Psych 101?
brentan comments on Aug 10, 2018:
I think they would be very interested in the dynamics of identity politics.
I am new here and utterly lost. Just testing the waters. Thank you! Everyone is so welcoming.

Hi and welcome! You'll soon get used to it.
Boris Johnson's burka jibe: Why do some Muslim women wear the veil? - BBC News
brentan comments on Aug 10, 2018:
It was a witty comment. I'm also thinking "when in Rome" but maybe it's a bit much when someone's faith is involved. I think a ban should only be considered in time of martial law.

Is Rap Music? - YouTube
brentan comments on Aug 10, 2018:
I suppose it must be but it's not my cup o'tea. Anyway I'm old. I only have one rap album. It's by The Roots, called 'And Then You Shoot Your Cousin. It's experimental, moving from classic music to street to hiphop and back.
Well hi guys new on here
brentan comments on Aug 10, 2018:
You're very welcome!
The Beatles or the Stones?
brentan comments on Aug 10, 2018:
I would pick The Beatles too.
EMOLUMENT: e-mol-u-ment.
brentan comments on Aug 10, 2018:
I get a 'Word For The Day' e-mail every day with a new word and its meaning. It also tells a bit about the etymology of the word, which can be very educational in its own right. Here's the one for emolument: Latin Ä“molumentum advantage, benefit, equivalent to Ä“mol(ere) to grind out, produce by grinding
Hey, anyone here obsessed with Audio books like I am?
brentan comments on Aug 10, 2018:
I feel my eyesight is going to last a lot longer thanks to audio books. Recently, I've read Crime and Punishment and also The Master and Margarita. I didn't buy them, I listened to them on YouTube.
You should think that we are all under a Petri dish.

Hmmmm, "admin" professes to "reject" online media, though not only is he here on agnostic.
brentan comments on Aug 10, 2018:
Hi. I've just joined the group. Does it really matter what admin thinks about things. Does their opinion impinge on the rights of others to express their opinions?

I just found this article that may be as interesting to some of you as it was to me.
brentan comments on Aug 9, 2018:
That was informative. Apart from the child abuse scandals that happened everywhere, I knew nothing about reasons why Americans are turning from religion.

brentan comments on Aug 8, 2018:
Identity politics has the wonderful combination of victimhood and lack of responsibility. Now white people can enjoy the childish attitude that black people have enjoyed for so long, avoiding responsibility and blaming the white man.
Where are you on Narcissistic Spectrum?
brentan comments on Aug 8, 2018:
I wonder what a reasonable amount of self-regard is, and what score reflects that? If it is a zero score on this test, is that someone who has no regard for themselves at all? What's the score that puts you in the danger area?
What do you call your mother-in-law?

Deciding on what to eat.?
brentan comments on Aug 8, 2018:

God but not man's religion?
brentan comments on Aug 8, 2018:
I feel there might be something out there too but it's not the patriarch with the beard anymore. It's more the Eastern cosmic consciousness.
If you look beyond Christian and anti-Christian polemic, you do not need to invoke religion to ...
brentan comments on Aug 8, 2018:
I guess he means you don’t need to talk about Satan or man’s fall from grace to explain cruelty. It’s just man’s nature to be cruel or kind, and cruel and kind depending on mood, circumstance etc. Then again, I suppose he might well have thought that man is God’s creation without believing in Satan or the fall but that’s a bit a la carte.

Where does consciousness come from?
brentan comments on Aug 8, 2018:
I think it is an inate feature of the cosmos that is accessed by the human brain and is the repository for every thought that came into the mind of man since time began. As our mind processes thoughts taken in from the cosmos, the processed thoughts go back out there for storage.

The significance of number 8 in numerology
brentan comments on Aug 8, 2018:
I know a few numbers from my Bible days. 7 is spiritual completeness 10 is human completeness 6 is a lack of completeness, evil Is 8 better than spiritual completeness? It probably can't be so maybe this meaning comes from a different source.
Why Are Many Americans Abandoning Religion? A Lot of the Credit Goes to Pastors – Friendly Atheist
brentan comments on Aug 8, 2018:
I see their point and yet I can't help but argue that pastors were always behaving this way. So my question is why have we reached a tipping point now where the pastors are being challenged for what they say. I'm tempted to say it was the child abuse scandals but something tells me there is more to it than that.

Long ago I discovered that laughter is not always because we find something funny.
brentan comments on Aug 8, 2018:
An example of concentration camp humour from Frankl’s Man’s Search for Meaning. This laughs at the positions of authority the capos got when they decided to work for the Nazis to control their fellow Jews: ‘… and to think he was only a bank manager before the war!

Hello Heathens. Hope everyone has a great day today.
brentan comments on Aug 7, 2018:
Hello fellow heathen. I heard a guy say recently that heretics are people who don't hold to the whole body of doctrine in an orthodox belief - they have a pick and chose attitude to the mainstream religion. I don't know if that's technically correct but I never really knew what the word meant.
The Solution to Stop Islam. - YouTube

Just your perspective..... !
brentan comments on Aug 7, 2018:
In the cartoon, it seems that the perspectives are determined by circumstance. Each man sees a change in circumstance and we laugh because their underlying circumstance isn't changing.
