Bio

I was raised heathen. That is to say religion wasn’t really discussed when I was growing up. I suppose when I was a child I kind of believed in Christianity from mere cultural osmosis, but I dispelled that by age 10 or so.

I’m on here to have some interesting discussions, waste some time and perhaps meet some nice ladies to spend some time with.

I’m a self taught computer programmer. I’ve been doing that professionally for almost 20 years. It’s a hobby as well. I hope to eventually share links to some artwork I’ve done. It’s just a bunch of perverse geometries in motion set to chill wave tunes.

Speaking of music, I like a lot of things, but electronic stuff reall does it for me.

I like Sushi, Indian food and good old fashioned hamburgers.

indirect76 comments on May 5, 2018:
Anonymity should be protected. If I see someone being creepy, I should be able to call the police without risk of reprisal. The police did speak with the caller, and they did have to explain to themselves. I don’t think publishing their name will do good for anyone but hooligans. I don’t get how it just a forgone conclusion that the caller was racially motivated. It may well have been, who knows, but you can’t just assume that. How many times are the police called on innocent people that are acting suspicious? Hundreds a day? Though it happens to two ethnic kids, they miss a school tour and now it’s news?

indirect76 comments on May 5, 2018:
Welcome! I see you have this same text in your profile. That’s a good move, but I suspect you will still need to clarify your use of the word god repeatedly. Maybe just say ‘goodness in world’ instead?

indirect76 comments on May 4, 2018:
I’ve been pondering this for the last hour, and one thing I should say is that I agree with you more than I disagree. Calling a woman by that term is crass, low brow, and not a particularly clever use of the word. It’s not something I would do, and it’s a good way to lose an argument. Dehumanization, in any form, is not a good thing. It’s what makes genocide possible and war easy.
How many of you achieved your degree under a dim light and many late night homework sessions.

indirect76 comments on May 4, 2018:
I respectfully disagree with a few things you said. Mostly the second paragraph. I have used the word “bitch” thousands of times in my life and it’s been for a variety of reasons, the least of which is anger towards women. Like all words, It can be an incredible tool for making a statement when used the right way. Why do I choose to use the term you ask? Because when I do, there is no other word that is better suited for conveying an idea and emotion I’m trying to communicate at the moment.
Will plastic money in the USA eradicate theism, at least monotheism?
indirect76 comments on May 4, 2018:
Yeah, that should put an end to monotheism pretty quickly. I suspect theism will end a couple days after.
I'm so glad there was no internet or social media when I was growing up. I mean, REALLY glad.
indirect76 comments on May 4, 2018:
I would have benefited so unimaginably much had the internet existed when I was younger. It’s an unprecedented tool for education and I’m stunned anyone would say they are glad it was not available.

Why is it that we do not hear scientists defend their postions more often.
indirect76 comments on May 4, 2018:
What do people generally think about someone when that person is “defensive”? A person that is confident in their ideas will be less likely to feel a need to defend them. That may be part of it.

indirect76 comments on May 1, 2018:
The author is a dummy. First, the article doesn’t even explain what a naturopath is. They go on to explain how they realized it was bunk after they went to school and started practicing it. A bit late for that. They were convinced because their boss ordered a substance not regulated by the FDA, which doesn’t sound like a great reason.
