My Food Treatise I sat in a room yesterday with some obese people.
Deedreaming comments on Jan 21, 2018:
People use food to celebrated. We eat because we are happy, sad, angry or bored. That's the society that we live in. What does being obese have to do with your questions? Actually, I'm not sure you really asked any valid questions. Are you saying only fat people talk about food? I'm not sure what ...

Well then I guess obesity is a choice that you have made.
The fact that there are more women joining this site gives me hope.

Oh thaannkks. I see so many men and women that say they are a child of God on online dating sites and it makes me want to bash my head in. Like, Oh you like the same things I do and I find you attractive! But oh... you're a child of god and you're quoting things from the bible. There goes that ...

When I was on dating sites, up until about 1 year ago, MANY women were looking for a church going man. And of course that eliminated a lot of them. I asked many what they were doing on a dating site then ....just find a man who's already in church! Evidently there aren't any, or many to pick from. OP isn't far off in his observations if you ask me

As I learned the tradition of eating fish on Friday it came from the church a few hundred years back, when the fisherman were having a hard time selling their catch... The church, to help them out, asked the members to eat fish on Fridays, it carried on until the churches thought it had some link to...

VinceRichardson comments on Jan 21, 2018:
Food is a comfort,peoples lives are tough and food is an escape. It s about feeling better while you eat,the rush is immediate but no doubt the regret comes later. Its an addiction and an illness, you have to feel sorry for them. But none of us is tied to a fate we dont want,we can make the change ...

Hi Deidra. Are you saying that putting yourself last causes weight issues for you? There is a thing called ""stress eating". Is that what you mean? I have done that. Sometimes anxiety causes me to break a fast. Eat when I'm not hungry. Eat the wrong item or something I soon regret. It is a mental battle for sure.

twill replies on Jan 21, 2018:
I frequently point out to my children what extremely overweight people are eating and the "food" they are putting in their shopping carts. I let them know that almost ALL obesity is a choice. What is unfair is not my anti -pcism (body shaming!!) but the promotion of poor nutritional choices by our culture.

jayneonacobb comments on Jan 21, 2018:
I've heard these conversations everywhere too. I don't really care anymore. My only bone of contention is that obesity is a preventable condition that raises health care costs. Other than that, eat yourself to death if you want. Might sound synnical, but it's really just apathy.

Happily single—or not?
MiniMags comments on Jan 19, 2018:
I've enjoyed being single for going on 5 years now. I got to know myself really well, focus on things I want to do and be, and haven't had to argue or worry about or be questioned by another person, and vice versa. The bed is ALL MINE. I can watch or do whatever I want any time without friction. And...
twill replies on Jan 19, 2018:
Well said MM. Well defined. I guess we know when it's time to give it up. For me, I definitely have the selfish thing going. Divorced 3 years ago. Been in relationships steady for about 25 years. Working my ass off to carry the load in 2 marriages. You lose yourself. This whole selfishness thing still fits me.

Your friend sounds like a wonderful person, and I'm very sorry for your loss. I too wonder what would be a god's reason for inventing diseases. If he has the power to smite, why not just *poof* people out of our lives when "their time has come"? Imagine a god, creating all the beautiful things ...

twill replies on Dec 15, 2017:
I love Wikipedia. Looks like it makes it way into Indiana ever so slightly. The key definition might be the lack of religious diversity then?

TY. Sounds about right . And They don't like Catholics either.....one of them ongoing religious wars, I'd guess. I remember going to Mardi Gras and before the parades, there'd be a couple of marchers slandering the "Catholic's and Their Party"....or, sumpin' like dat. Then it was all fun again

I had one recently and I just couldn’t bring myself to go to her church. I asked her if they were young-earth creationists and she said “we believe everything in the bible, and I told my pastor about you”. I asked her if she got bonus points or something. I’ve tried to get a couple of others...
twill replies on Dec 15, 2017:
I just looked that up online at a Bible site ......"Therefore, it is imperative that Matthew 24–25 be seen as dealing with a future time. The generation that Jesus speaks of “not passing” until He returns is a future generation, namely, the people living when the predicted events occur. The word generation refers to the people alive in the future when the events of Matthew 24–25 take place.Jesus was talking about a different generation, a future generation".... Uh Huh
Do you think dreams have any real meaning?
resserts comments on Dec 4, 2017:
If there's any meaning, I think it's probably only that we dream about some things that are already meaningful to us — but trying to distinguish between the important things and the bizarre nonsense that runs through our minds seems futile, and we may be looking for symbolism or patterns that just...

In Scouts they have a badge for “God and me” so indoctrination is key to the scouting life. My boy has been a Cub Scout for the last four years and he loves camping, etc., but it is often hard for me to be at Scout events because of all the praying, etc. Some scout troops are very religious, ...
twill replies on Dec 12, 2017:
I too struggle with scouts. My son is 10. ( Claims to be a believer in GOD also ). Webelos finishing up, Boy Scouts next year. We are as tight as a drum, but I don't deny him his beliefs....which have come from elsewhere. It's difficult, But I will lead by example and be patient. He will know that he does not have to live in one of society's boxes. Anyway, I'm new here and yes, scouts is a conflict
