I live in an RV...so a little dirt makes a big mess. I take mine off, but don't require others. Then again, others typically don't enter, or just stay in the kitchen/dining area. I also spent time in Okinawa and on the mainland...so isn't that culturally weird for me anyhow.

How did you you come out as a skeptic if you had a religious family?
jondspen comments on Oct 30, 2018:
I had doubts growing up (was adopted, so always felt an outsider in my family), found better things to do in late teens and into 20's, then about 30 and raising two daughters as a single parent decided I needed to get back right with God to make it through life and raise them "right". After a couple of years, I filled in one summer as youth pastor when the old one moved away. I studied and read a lot, since I didn't want to mis-represent anything. After studying the history, theology, and looking at my life lessons...finally came to the conclusion it was all a load of crap. After that, I was just open about it and my beliefs. Of course I was wrong and confused, being led away by Satan. All the questions and errors I encountered though were never answered by the pastors or staff, friends or family when I asked them to clarify. Never got an answer, they just said either "I'm afraid to not believe b/c of hell"....or, "you're right, it doesn't make sense, but you just have to have faith and still believe". Neither of which at this point had any sway on me.

I hardly ever watch TV...and if I do it's typically documentaries or PBS. I also enjoy movies (with a good protagonist and plot), so yes...I like well written biopics, but I'm a bit odd in my entertainment preferences. As far a being about musicians and does the music help...depends if I am interested in the story. If it was about Taylor Swift...I could give a rat's ass less about it. I am a punk-a-billy rocker, but I can appreciate the talent of Andre Segovia, so while not my top #1 favorite musician or style, I would be down to watch b/c I respect him as a musician.

Sorry...I think the whole government and every politician is a POS, mostly due to the fact that most people are lazy, ignorant, and simple minded. As such, we have the government we (collectively) deserve. So no...can't say anything positive about Trump or any other president in the past 20-30 years. Even when they do attempt to do something good for the people, it is so warped and diluted with party politics that in the end it doesn't really help in most cases.

jondspen comments on Oct 28, 2018:
Great advice...till you start trying to actually raise kids. After that you have environmental and genetic influences, human imperfections from both the parent and child. My daughters were 10.5 months apart, and raised by me. While I could have told my oldest daughter to get ready an hour early, if I did that with my youngest, not only would she not have her stuff together, she would have still been in bed as we're trying to walk out the door. It's my experience that environment does affect personality development, but people are different, and the same set of stimuli can illicit different responses from different people. While good general advice, parents that are conscious about how they parent probably already know this; parents that just act without introspection won't use this. Really all she is saying is let kids F-up to learn, without F-ing up so serious they affect the rest of their lives...and keep it simple b/c they don't have the brain ability to understand the complexities of the world yet. It amazes me how slapping a PhD on a person seems to make common sense seem so profound and insightful.

First, you're suppose to turn the other cheek...so how do you prepare for people coming to kill you? Take drama classes so you can die dramatically? Second, doesn't shit like this need to happen to setup the apocalypse and the return of your necrophilia obsession? If your goal is see zombie Jesus come to power...shouldn't you be voting FOR the democrates to help speed things along? Sorry, I know I'm a confused, ignorant atheist.

jondspen comments on Oct 26, 2018:
Do you believe in Democracy ? - Yes, but what you go on to describe is not democracy, but attempted implementations of the idea. I also believe that democracy can be manipulated, hijacked, or outright bought. People are too lazy, ignorant, and indifferent to keep our current (and past) forms of democracy on track...and I feel we are 100 or so years away from essentially crumbling. I believe the government (aka - military industrial banking complex - not the whites) will continue in some form to enslave and murder the world for profit, but the sheeple will continue to support Oceania.

jondspen comments on Oct 26, 2018:
Education - while all the problems listed by others are very important, I feel education is the only thing that will fix our problems. Child abuse - educating the public of the signs, educating the victims that people do care, educating the abusers of why they do this. Hunger - educating the world about alternative solutions like The Venus Project, educating society that we have technology that corporations hide from us behind patents, educating local people about self-sustainability as we combine 1930's experience with 2018 technologies. Religion - educating yourself on the history/theology of your religion, studying others without bias, educating yourself on philosophy, logical reasoning, and how to ask questions.

I open the door...I insult you b/c you are an independent and strong woman. I don't open the door...I'm an insensitive ass that doesn't appreciate know how to treat a woman. I pay for the meal...I am a sexist b/c I feel you need a man to support you. I don't pay for the meal...I am cheap and you question if I can properly provide for you. Western women are so fucking spoiled and delusional, with no idea of what they want, or are too afraid to admit to themselves what they want, they can't realize what a shit experience it is to date them. Guys are expected to rut and fight over an over-weight woman with no fashion sense, just to show how special we think you are b/c your narcissistic dating bio says so. Yet when we do, we never get any compliments or thanks for it. Attitudes toward dating are just like a wedding day...it's HER day...and you better do anything and everything for her with no expectations of having any of your needs met (conversation, interest, attraction, etc).

My adopted father kicked me from the table b/c I wouldn't hold hands and pray with them. I said something along the lines of you can go ahead but I would rather not hold hands and participate in the prayer....so I got a well you can get up from my table then. I was a 40 something year old man, over there visiting with my youngest daughter (19 at time). A year or so later, we were able to sit down and talk. At first we traded verses, then I was told I was confused and misguided, then at the end he admitted he didn't understand why prayers and faith didn't seem to work as the bible promised, but was too scared of hell (to face the truth). I was never close to either of them, always knew of my adoption and felt the outsider anyway, only child and grew up a loner, so while it sucks....it doesn't affect me the same as it might others. I would say that having quality and loving people in your life is more important than keeping a relationship with someone who doesn't respect you simply b/c you don't believe in their superstitions, regardless of shared DNA or decades old legal custody judgments. It's hard, and it sucks...but it's a honing process that makes you a sharper, keener, happier person IMO.

Do You Believe The Apollo 11 Moon Landing Actually Happened?
jondspen comments on Oct 17, 2018:
I believe it happened, and I also believe it was staged. Yes, I believe in aliens, but irregardless of that, if I was in charge of the thing, would I want to take a chance to broadcast dead American astronauts on live TV? I think we went, but fake footage was created to act as filler or to be used in case a cover up was needed, or to hide live events occurring. People seem to argue either/or, and don't see the pattern of deceit in our government, or the obvious logic in having footage available to run while you go off and do top secret shit, or deal with problems that you don't want to be know publicly. No proof, but just makes sense to me.

Cops kill unarmed people daily without any type of inditement, much less conviction or even a departmental reprimand.

Career Advice- Follow your dreams or be practical?
jondspen comments on Oct 9, 2018:
I voted to follow your dreams, but I don't believe it has to be mutually exclusive. Even if you find a job or career you love, it's still called 'work', not 'play'. There are going to be aspects of anything you do that you will not enjoy. You have to decide two things, how much can you compromise between the two now. Second, and more important, how flexible will you be in this career you choose now to change when your willingness to compromise b/w freedom and security as you get older, wiser, etc. changes. I heard someone say once, life isn't a game, it's a series of games....many being played at the same time. The secret is not to focus winning one game, at the detriment of all the others.

You might find it, but good luck. One, with this whole social media, my own brand, mentality, seems finding people willing to "tribe" up isn't the norm. IMO you seem to find people that "hang out" with certain groups to identify with a movement, but never really going deep into friendships. Then as you stated, the main mode of communication between strangers today is via a technology that helps to insulate and maintain separation. Esp for guys, if you don't have a circle of friends by the time you finish HS or college, it's near impossible to find one after 25-30. You might meet a new guy friend from your gf/wifes friends, but we don't seek or even allow it to happen naturally (homophobia - or at least fear of appearance)?

Ask the Hawaiian people about their rights. The Italian, Japaneese, German Americans during WWII about theirs. The Phillipino people under Roosevelt? How about black slaves and native americans about their rights? People lie to themselves about freedom b/c they are too scared and/or lazy to face the truth.

I don't know why so many people put so much faith in the US Government or the Supreme Court. Any organization that rubber stamped slavery, while maintaining to uphold "all men are created equal" is obviously a group of lying hypocrites. Nice article btw...

jondspen comments on Oct 6, 2018:
I have not, but people that are bisexual are typically more liberal and open to non-conventional relationships (open marriages, live in third, etc), thus they are perceived as continually living such a lifestyle, even after marriage. I agree though, a hetro married man still finds women attractive, a hetro woman will still find other men attractive...doesn't mean they run off and F them at the drop of a hat. I have had friends in open relationship, and one married couple who had a live in girlfriend. From my discussions, these situations usually end bad, with feelings of jealousy and betrayal. It takes a really strong relationship to survive period, not to mention all the emotional baggage that comes in this type of situation.

Laura - I don't want to sound mean, but I read the first line in your profile and got to wonder what the hell you're thinking! 1 year old, not divorced yet, and you now get all emotional about a guy that you probably have only known shortly. I'm not against you doing what you got to physically and socially to not lose your mind during all this, but perhaps if you can't keep your emotions in check, you need to think about not dating till events settle down for you and the kid.

Will time one day end ?
jondspen comments on Oct 5, 2018:
Depends on the context of the word 'time' you are using... I don't think anyone uses the Mayan calendar anymore, so in a way, that aspect of time is dead. Will CE be a bygone era like BCE is to our perspective? Maybe it will one day end. Will the universe wind down, maybe contract into a new big bang? I have no clue. Do we understand time enough in relationship to with gravity to even make an assumption? I don't think so.

jondspen comments on Oct 5, 2018:
I've thought the exact same thing from conversations with people I've had on here, and other forums. I know this is a dating site that turned more into an agnostic/atheist hangout, but you would think that a group of people so proud of critical thinking would apply that to all aspects of logic and areas of their lives. I think in the early internet age, we were still conditioned to interacting face to face, so the hatred and insults just were not as natural due to the format of the conversation. I think tv does really program people, and the internet makes it easy to live in an echo chamber. Google doesn't force you to read articles making counter points to your top 10 searches. As far as you're two questions proposed at the end people/interactions are shitty and becoming shittier, or the internet has better info - can't it be both? :) IMO - this is the next step in human evolution. Right now our brains can't process the data into full encompassing truths (not merely accurate personal perceptions). We have got to step up as a species and everyone be a garbage collector and start using this super computer we're born with, otherwise bad, maybe catastrophic decisions may be made.

jondspen comments on Oct 4, 2018:
Well, you did say in a round about way, so any advice you receive will be from the assumption your interpretation of her words are correct. You need to either look for a new therapist, or confront her that if she can't do her job without superstitions, she should let you know immediately. That is a call only you can make based on the relationship you have with her. I would also ask her why a belief in accepted social delusions and imaginary friends will help her deal with a physical problem. There are a lot of unknowns in this scenario, but I would suggest not to be emotional about it, approach it in a professional manner, and if you don't feel that she can professionally provide you with what you need medically (not what you want), then find someone else. Even if you are close and comfortable with her, if she can't do the job the right way, you need to seek proper medical care from another.

End of the world: MIT prediction from 1973 is proving true
jondspen comments on Oct 3, 2018:
Scary...but not surprising. I probably won't survive long term after it happens (I'm close to 50 already), but I have made a few preparations myself. Food, shelter, water...can be easily prepared for, at least here in the US. I feel sickness and disease will be a larger problem, along with growing and protecting long term sustainability in some areas. I'm in a rural area near the Mississippi River, so I foresee different circumstances from LA or NYC, Dallas or Arizona.

How dare you group all the boys as the same. This kid, and 9 other boys, were assaulted by these 3 a-holes. Another boy stepped up and even stopped the attack it was reported. There are sick evil twisted people in the world, and yes, some of them are male. Please stop attacking all males, esp. insinuating that these poor victims are also part of the problem, just b/c they were born with a penis.

This is my adopted father...everything wrong is your fault, everything right is because of the gracious love and mercy of his imaginary friend. He gets really annoyed when I call him on it also; that doesn't mean I don't call him on it. Ever heard the saying, you can lead a horse to water, but you can't make it drink? It's the best out look I can take toward situations like this. Eventually most people get the hint and start "hiding their light under a bushel" as the old Sunday school song goes. On the other hand....GRTZ!!!!! Way to go on those 30 lbs! That is a huge accomplishment! You up calories for maintenance, or going to keep at same level and try to lose more? I am shooting for 150, then bump to maint and start more strength vice cardio. Hoping to level out around 155.
