Texan now living in Vancouver, Canada!
A great grandmother and her brother, Sophie and Jacob Guth, came to the USofA from Austria and Jacob fought for the Union in our Civil War. My mother spoke German but didn't pass it along to her kids. When our President Reagan invited Xians into the Republican Party I swore I would not vote Repub again, so after I moved to California I did not vote for Arnie.
Malaysia.......truly Asia :D
I live here in Madera California. After the Mormons, Jehovah Witnesses and Evangelicals each had about a 5 minute discussion with me, they now just walk on by....Was it something I said?
LOL Craig, maybe it's your choice of aftershave! Have the same problem, though they cross over the other side of the street to avoid my place, they especially won't let their children look our way, maybe it's the smell of barbequed theology, or the image out front of a Jesus fish getting shagged by a big nasty atheist amphibian. ROFL!
Craig, could it have been something you were doing, and the way you were doing it?
An atheist in Texas (a woman) posted on a Think Atheist thread that when she saw her would-be saviors approaching, she was doing housework topless. Knowing what they had in mind, she stayed topless. When they got close enough to her door to see her, they turned around and left.
Several entertaining posts followed.
That would be me.
