Re: My first public drink

Rubin say it isn't so!!! You just need to find the right red to complement a wonderful steak and conversation with friends! Sigh... I haven't given up and I never refuse red wine when they offer it. I've probably tried a dozen or more different ones, even ordered up an expensive one at Ruth's Chris...

Re: My first public drink

Sweet! We still prefer Moscoto and have been unable to find any enjoyment in wines other than the sweet ones. I keep trying but I can't find anything I like. White wines are a bit less vinegary, but the reds elude me. We have been enjoying whiskies, tequilas, vodkas, gins and many other hard liquors...

Re: Flat Earth Ignorance is a Serious Problem

I asked my high school son how many people who knows in real life believe in flat earth. He said zero. Is this really a thing? Do people really think this or is it all bogus? He said he knows of some pro athletes that claim to believe it, ploy for attention. I asked my HS Jr. if she knows anyone, s...

Awe man!?

At least Henry doesn't have his eyes and mouth all the way open!

I would love to take some GC or other footage of these guys and pull some Craig Ferguson edits on them like he did with Donald Rumsfeld:

Re: 20% of missionaries coming home early

According to a news story on the radio this morning. I wonder if this is the reason for rumors that one of the new revelations will have something to do with more flexible mission lengths. This was a trend I noticed, going back about a decade ago. YM I taught for 3-4 years and saw going out then co...

Re: The Test of Faith- are all faiths created equal?

This is a very interesting question Deacon! Just yesterday I was agonizing over all the flat earther comments on a NASA image post on Instagram and one of the accounts said "I know the Earth is Flat!" But I think from my own experience working on projects, like my old cars, that faith to keep trying...

Re: Attend one funeral at the ward and you'll be back on the list!

Update to this thread. So it was last January when the Stake missionaries stopped by and I'd heard nothing since then from them, even though my old friend from the ward (we'll call him BroTex, since he served a senior mission there with his wife and I had even helped him fill out his online mission ...

I wouldn't want to be RMN. The guy has an ego...and he is getting old. When he starts to slip mentally because of age and just plain health, he may be difficult to manage. Can you imagine correcting the man when he makes a mistake? YIKES! We've already seen evidence of this when Oaks has to stick h...

Re: Flat Earth Ignorance is a Serious Problem

I prefer to not engage with Flat Earth types as well as many other conspiracy theorists. Because the universe doesn't care. This is true Corsair and it's even my moniker here that the universe does not give a crap about humanity, as is evidenced from the several mass extinction events of the past. ...

1. YouGov appears to be in the business of selling data for market research. 2. The article's author doesn't know the difference between "spiritual" and "religious" which in psychology is an important distinction. Something like this is normally a bit of a red flag, but I don't know whether the aut...

It sucks being in the thick of the suck! I take most of the responsibility for all the pain I put my DW through when I was going south and she was TBM.

It will also be interesting to see if RSM follows the trend that Tommy set: No more direct testimony to the truth claims. As the CEO of Mormom Corp, RSM could be liable if he he's to direct in those claims and I'm sure Kirton and McConkie will be reviewing all his talks to make sure he does not. Jus...
