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.

How do you people feel about prenups?
indirect76 comments on Jul 23, 2018:
I think they go against the whole idea of what marriage should be. It’s a permanent descision and a prenup flies in the face of that. If you don’t trust someone don’t marry them. I know it’s not realistic, but that’s how I feel.

Nothing made me an athiest. It’s the default position. I think my parents are athiest. I know my brother is. Have I told my parents about my religious thoughts? No. We never really talked about religion when I grew up and we don’t now. Maybe that’s a reason that you were looking for.

Years later I was able to plead down to involuntarily manslaughter, and the bury that on page 10 if they report it at all.

Deserve? Probably not. I don’t know, but ‘deserve’ is a somewhat useless word. If you get upset over not getting what you deserve, then I’m afraid your going to have a bad run at life. Reality doesn’t often conform to our notion of what people deserve. Though reality does correspond better to the notion of actions & consequences and that’s what happening here.

Intelligence is not necessarily the best tool to have in all circumstances. It might be natural to assume otherwise, but other qualities like compassion and the ability to work with people can be more helpful. You also have to explain exactly what is meant by ‘intelligence’ as there are many aspect to that concept alone.

My very close friends can call me Rob with no issue even. The gender thing is a bit different. I’ve never been asked to use a different gender pronoun by anyone. If I were, I would certainly do so unless the person is being a real jack ass about it. What I don’t go for is legislating manditory speech.

I love it when I have to drag myself to the hospital nearly pissing myself in pain for kidney stones and they give me static because I want some pain killers. I have to ask and try to not look like a drug seeker only to get mostly APAP. Taking one does nothing, so I have to take three times the amount on the label. I know there’s a big problem with their abuse, but the reaction has been overkill. This wasn’t a thing 10 years ago. I could go to the hospital, get treated there and go home with some narcos safe in the thought that I would not have to endure excruciating pain. I’d be better off going to a drug dealer for my kidney stones, but at my age that’s not going to happen.
