I have a pair of Reeves turtles that have been with me well over 20 years (longer than either of my previous 2 marriages).Anyhow, yesterday before work I came down to find the male wedged into the…Continue

I like keeping my nexus window open to pop back and forth, even while I'm doing other things (or listening to music). But the ding won't stop even at lowest level.Please make it (optionally) go awayContinue

jay H replied to James M. Martin's discussion John Gielgud Once Played Every Role in a Movie Version of Shakespeare's "The Tempest," But This is Something Else Again
"It was this 1991 version http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0102722/ Actually it contained more naked people than most any other film, but was not at all sexual. The nudity superbly was woven in to create an unearthly, magical aura to the setting. It was…"

"Sorry to cause a bit of a shock. Insurance is basically protection against large an unpredictable expenses. Auto insurance does not cover oil changes and tire replacement. Homeowners insurance does not cover painting and new cabinets. Similarly…"

jay H commented on Rick Springfield's blog post Why satan have influence in religions
"Monotheism has a major flaw, as you point out, because you can't just blame other gods for bad things happening. The Satan character developed very slowly over the course of the Bible, many feel he was the voice of the serpent (though Genesis…"

"Gelgud also did a movie version of the Tempest where virtually every character was naked at some point."

jay H commented on Joseph Hilton's blog post Young Forever
"This is one of those things that proves there is still a lot of wonder in the universe. Every time we think we've figured it out... bazinga, the universe tweaks us a bit. As a comment, I'd say there is an issue with the word…"

"Really, does that rise to a critical level that necessitates intervention of law?  (This is the question that should be very seriously considered before the sledgehammer approach of law is applied to any situation). You can work at other…"

jay H replied to matthew greenberg's discussion Post Hobby Lobby
"There are lawyers that thrive on these cases. They recruit people to find small stores with inadequate aisles (ADA) or missing notifications (especially in CA) with not all the required warning signs and sue. They avoid the vexatious litigator issue…"

"She is kind of silly but there are lots of 'equal rights' employment suits out there. The thing is, if you don't approve of the place, DON'T APPLY TO WORK THERE. Which amazes me when people actually apply for and work for a…"

jay H replied to Eric Wideman's discussion Plane crash in the Ukraine
"Interestingly on Thursday (before this story came together)  Igor Girken posted that they had shot down an AN-26 . When news of the airliner hit, that post vanished. Perhaps Putin thought by arming these guys they'd do his dirty work (what…"

jay H commented on Andrew Bradford Hoke's blog post How 'out' are you?
"To me being out is completely normal. I never hide my atheism (and by the same token, I don't shove it at people "hi, pleased to meet you, I'm an aheist") "

jay H commented on Andrew Bradford Hoke's blog post Religion as Mental Disorder
"There are some good points raised here. It's tempting to call religion a disorder, because it seems quite silly to us. But by usual definition, disorder involves significant deviation from the population norm, and there is no doubt that…"

jay H replied to Joe's discussion Is theocratic violence on the rise?
"It's a concern, but I really don't see it as a huge emerging threat, though pockets may get active for short times (all cases in recent years have blown over). Preachers get their names in the news for mouthy predictions, get a little too…"

"Some  of what we think of as spirituality is our instinctive social sense. Group cohesion is very important in our evolution (including our earlier ancestors) and this tendency to synchronize thinking into a kind of group norm went a long way…"

jay H replied to James M. Martin's discussion "Religion Free Zones" Should be Among Restaurants' Priorities
"It can be very annoying (we encountered that recently) but it comes down to the circumstances. If they are talking in a normal conversational manner, it's their right just as much as it's our right to critique religion. If their pushing…"

jay H commented on Catriona Taruste's blog post Pink: Exclusively for girls
"The whole thing is silly. And because it's silly I certainly can't get upset about it. True its purely cultural (think Lawrence's Pinkie vs Gainsborough's Blue Boy), it's just custom. Really, harmless custom. Its absurd to…"

About Me:
I'm an old coot, raised JW, became sceptical then outrightly disbelieving many years ago.

Politically (after years of wandering through philosophies-du-jour), I'm strongly pro-individual freedom, pro-market, to the discomfort of both my liberal and conservative friends.

Day job is computer administration for a large corporation. Off hours I like anything with machines and tools.

We live in a society of generalities: not all cyclists are rednecks and vice versa. No offense intended.

Nice looking dog you have! "Securing" a dog is a concern. Previous dogs have stayed outdoors ALL the time, never running away . But I live out in the country. Free roaming is my preference, but the H.S. doesn't like to hear that. I'm losing sleep trying to come up with an alternative.
