  • Ooh, ooh- we'll take it next!

    We have been getting a fair amount of rain in the past week, but we can pretty much always use more. Just send half down to AZ.

    • i'm kinda mad that the circumcision thread disappeared. you know why? because people who are fallaciously asserting that others are anti-semites or nazis 'win.' They just make that little hint that they are offended (although, as I quoted from an article, I can understand their trepidations), and then, regardless of reality or circumstance, the admins toss the thread.

      That bothers me big time. It's like we can't talk about these issues without being called names, and then the thread is pulled because we were called those names falsely, but someone felt like it needs to be pulled? I don't get it.

        Exactly. It really pissed me off big time when I saw it was gone. And I'm sure it just happened to disappear right after that last random person came in and started spouting off about how we should all be ashamed of ourselves and the mods should be condemned for allowing such a terrible discussion and blah blah blah...

        EDIT: How do you go about contacting mods directly on this forum? I've never had occasion before...

            • We're getting the rain Saturday, just in time for my son's all day college campus tour.

              And when we get rain, it's usually nothing but humidity, then a total downpour and then nothing again. Seriously, back when I first moved here, we got 4 inches of rain in 20 minutes. Even the casinos were flooded.

              Yea for me.
              Durp.

                I went on a bit of an angry rampage last night, so I'm not surprised it's gone. Sucks, though.

                Oh well. Their culture is dying, and anti-circ sentiment is growing, we can take solace in that.

                  Didn't save me, but it will save any sons of mine. :\

                    I just wanted to say that you and zoebird have my respect (but not the only ones) - I don't know how you managed to keep cool. I normally don't blow the stack, but after "the doctor" showed up, I lost it to the point that I didn't trust myself to write a syllable. Wow. Very few people have managed to do that. I'll try to learn from you.

                        Chin up... it's all pretty irrelevant compared to the condition of your partners trust.
                        Don't sweat the small stuff.

                          Our fifth anniversary is Friday. We are going to go shopping for anniversary steins! That cheered us up, plus they're harder to break

                              • My daily gripe is that I hate the relationship between agribusiness and the government. Really. The whole GMO thing is making me want to go back to bell bottoms and marching in the streets. How dare they corrupt our freakin' foods. The USDA, EPA, and FDA should all be shut down because they don't do a farking thing.

                                My other gripe is anything touted as one size fits all. From religion to politics to nutrition. Except for medium sized spandex tube tops, one size fits few.

                                That was two, but I didn't post yesterday.
