You can grow special fungus on it that produces magic molecules and tap into the secrets of the cosmos. No, seriously!

Re: Heartlanders at it again

That is both sad and amusing. They may as well be out in the middle of the ocean looking for Atlantis, probably have better luck.

Re: Tragedy and the Tribe

I still really appreciate this NOM tribe and all it's done for me through all the crazy changes the past several years. I've made some close friendships that are priceless that have changed my life in profound and wonderful ways. Thank you. May all the gods, machine elves, keepers of the matrix/sim...

Re: Changes For Temple Ceremonial Clothing Announced

Thanks for all the laughs from this topic! Rats jumping up on Escoffier Swedish chef hats, biodegradable cloth, new shiny armor of Camelot. I was always frustrated by the lack of solid explanation of all the little funky quirky things with the clothing. I mean, other than the apron, the rest of it w...

Thank you so much for that post, RH. You hit the nail on the head, brother.

Re: Tragedy and the Tribe

In the past decade, my ward has had three teenagers pass away in tragic circumstances. Two of the families are sitting in front of me in sacrament meeting right now. Those were tough church meetings after their deaths. It's really hard to know what to say in those circumstances. Wow, that's also ho...

Re: Romney and Trump's Tirades

That's an interesting question birdman. It's been somewhat amusing seeing Romney try to play coy with Trump, while trying to maintain his foot in the party. I'm so sick of tired of all the crap the blues and reds keep slinging at each other while they accomplish nothing, expect spending our hard ear...

Re: 420

I recently overdid it with the combination, however, and ended up extremely paranoid. I had never experienced that before and hope to never again. It sucked. Yup, I overdid it with a friend once, trying to get the MJ to kick in for him, because the THC was not already in his system. He had a browni...

Re: Just in time to study for the first Book of Mormon Sunday School class of the new year!

Wow! I just browsed a few chapters. I love how you can tie the BOM concepts and ideas together, things mentioned in earlier chapters that would contradict things mentioned later. Also, just the logic in a lot of it that one would not otherwise think about, like the distance from the Red Sea or that ...

Re: The core of my mormon trauma

Mormons are the biggest fakers I have ever met. I realized early on that the church teaches people to pretend to be perfect Mormons. There were some girls in my age group at church who acted like perfect angels at church, but at school their behavior was not up to Mormon standards at all. All of my...

Re: Why belief in Satan is comforting

It's amazing what an invisible boogeyman can do to keep people in line. Not just keep them in line, but keep them feeling super special, like they are some of the few chosen ones to battle evil in the last days for team jebus/TSCC corporate army. Solders in army, putting on the armor of God, all th...

Sounds like you are not having much luck with THC. Might be time to try some cubensis fungus? Seems like it. Sad. Was hoping to see what its about.

So if you want to make sure you get to vote you can always register as a Republican but still vote Democrat. It would be pretty funny if a lot of people did that.
That's also not a bad idea Hagoth! Stick close to the devil you know so you can switch it up on them in the end.

Re: Unaffiliated

I certainly empathize with your frustration with the way TSCC has tried to meddle in local elections and then unethically used back channels to overturn the will of the voters. The primary system, however, is not really tied to that. Assuming you want to remain unaffiliated, either request the Demo...

Unaffiliated

This describes my religious status and my political one. I unaffiliated from the Republican part a few years before I left the mormon church. I've made an honest effort to stay informed and vote in the political process in Utah and the US, but I have been unable to find a party or candidate that rep...

Re: List of rejected Utah vanity license plates

Good shiz right there! Too bad they wouldn't let them out into the wild. My now retired F-150 had the letters WTF, followed by numbers. It was the luck of the draw, but I'm sure they would never let it go now. My DW got EVRLONG on her 4Runner. Many non-Foo Fighter fans think that one is sexual.
