  1. HBD VC! Thanks to all my “internet friends” for many years of interesting exchanges and sincere affections! -LL I can’t believe I managed to log in on the first try! Now I’m going to run away - I don’t want to wade in too deeply because I was mostly in my 20s during my active VC days and I fear what embarrassing skeletons I might find if I dig around here for long now. 😆
  2. You people are out of "hand." *grumble grumble, something about the second page*
  3. This taint business is really neither here nor there.
  4. It has something to do with a puking dragon with bad teeth and a cute pilgrim kitty? Yay, I am so looking forward to getting older so that the mysteries of life will be revealed to me!
  5. I'm really more of a "visual learner," so you'll probably just have to show me. Oh, on topic: There's a pretty good chance the next Wilco album will suck - subjectively, on my terms, in my humble opinion, chronologically, all that jazz.
  6. I have held Poongoogler's member many times with thoughts of Flick.
  7. Because sucking is totally subjective and we're all free to express our opinions and all that jazz, I'm going to put my ballot in the "always have, always will suck" hat.
  8. Ditto this. And for the record, I liked both Eccleston and Tennant more than the new guy. I'm cool with the new guy but I loooooved Tennant.
  9. I'm stoked too! One complaint: Why can't he be foxy still? Big head, too young, blah, blah, grumble grumble...
  10. Here's some random geeky shizz... I was reading a Who discussion on Facebook and found this comment interesting: Is that what's going on, you think?
  11. The eeeeend of tiiiiime! Can't wait 'til New Years! Part 1 was slow picking up, but I'm stoked for the second part now.
  12. Hallelujah for this sort of thing: You probably already know about Spong, Joe. He says
  13. She chose (assuming she had a choice) several great movies to do. I found one of my favorite movies ever, "Hud," for $3 last week!
  14. "A Face in the Crowd" is pretty fantastic.
  15. My answer to this is pretty much there in the rest of your post: My use of phrases like "seems to" and "bothers me a bit" can be taken as indicators that I don't confess to know much of anything.
  16. GON touched on this but I'd like to answer too. "Believing" bothers me a bit because it seems to hinder the search for truth. If there are serious irrefutable answers to the "big questions" we'll never find them if we all decide to settle on "faith" and stop looking, stop investigating, stop searching for truth. I'd like us to keep looking until we find better explanations than "I believe..." or "the Bible says..." y'know?
  17. If the demand for local produce was that great, I'd so totally become a farmer. I imagine plenty of people working shit jobs at Tyson's or McDonalds would gladly trade in their latex "food" handling gloves in exchange for a beautiful pair of dirt gloves, like those M Chris posted, too. I think one important step we can take/are taking is to continue to raise awareness - through movies, books, conversation, of what goes on behind the scenes in the food industry. Eventually, enough people will realize how totally screwed the whole thing is and demand reform.
  18. The Christmas preview does look totally badass. Maybe the Timelord Victorious thing is supposed to help us let go of Tennant, if they can make him go a little whack here at the end it won't hurts as much to see him go? I'm gonna miss that silly looking fox so much.
  19. Exactly. That's something I can't get behind, the idea that anyone "knows." When my daughter asks about god, "Is god real?", I just explain that some people think so, Dad doesn't think so, and Mom really just doesn't know.
  20. When I am thinking about this stuff (every day) and encounter the "What about toddlers..." issue, I think that when these things happen, it's not completely senseless horror. I get the same feeling I get at funerals (and I've attended my fair share) and that's the feeling that while this loss makes me tremendously sad, it also reminds me of the value of life. When someone dies, it reminds me to be thankful that I'm still alive and it reminds me of how strongly I loved that person and how strongly I love so many people in my life. I've never been so in love with the universe and so awed with
