Turn about is fair play, muttered Katrina as she deposited the worst of her household garbage sack onto the doorstep of the Beverly hillbilly who she suspected of leaving the raccoon carcass to rot out in the open, causing queasy pants all over the block.

She had known Matt's hot shot son would come rescue him, and that they might return for her, so she checked Matt's door to see if he had left his place unlocked!  He did - and once she was inside, she secured all the windows and located any and all of his spare keys, discreetly making sure they worked.  She grabbed his landline phone and cord in case service was restored, and mentally inventoried his resources, grabbing a few as she imagined ways to discreetly transfer the most valuable, most perishable, and most hydrating items to her apartment.
As she stuffed her shirt and pockets with Matt's money and small goods, she wondered where he and his son went and how long it would be before they returned for her.  There were enough provisions here for quite a while, as long as nothing was looted.  She wondered if any families would band together during this chaos, or if it was every man for himself.  Cities aren't the best place when infrastructure crumbles, but it could be worse.

This delicous and delectable food, roti, is a Caribbean favourite of mine (it's also made and enjoyed in India, Pakistan, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Thailand) and is simply out of this world. I myself prefer the West Indian-Jamaican version.

If you've never experienced roti (with varied fillings of Chicken, beef, goat, shrimp, veg) then you don't know what you're missing. Spicy West Indian currie (India, Pakistani and Malaysian roti  usuallys the heavier contains East Indian curry) mixed with any of or a combo of the aformentioned fillings. Loaded with potatoes and sometimes squash, West Indian roti is primarily made from wheat flour, baking powder, salt, and water and cooked on a tava. Certain rotis are also made with butter (the Jamaican one is).

Roti is often served with brown rice and peas, and is best enjoyed with an ice-cold German beer. Actually, any food is best enjoyed with ice-cold German beer!


I believe I see turmeric!

It does not answer the question exactly, but via hypnotic regression, I recall seeing this just before incarnation:


Take two numbers... And when you see someone come in who looks totally stressed out by the line, surreptitiously give them your extra number!

The way I resolve this creation question is to see the atoms and molecules of creation as more like auto-stacking Lego building blocks than as random things and so the "hurrricane making a 747 from a junkyard" statement oft heard really is a poor comparison. However, to build these Legos to fit and auto-combine and stack is the Mind of the Creator and after this was done - we are kind of on our own like tadpoles. I think we go on in a non-dogmatized reincarnation - but that the questions of "Divine Intervention" or a "Personal God" are difficult to answer.

Every time I hear "We chose our parents" or this or that circumstance before we came here, I call bullshit. As best I can tell even the karma thingy doesn't really work too well either. Its more like we are all who we are anyway. Criminal types will continue to gain lifetime to lifetime until they are physically caught and stopped. So if Earth is a "prison planet" and real prisons just create stronger criminals - well, you see where this is going.
I too disagree with us having chosen our destinies.  Even if it were true, it is irrelevant in a democracy.

I'm a Christian but the answer is not an easy one.  I don't think everything about God is laid out in the Bible and I have a hard time reconciling the God of Moses with the God of Jesus.  My wife has no such qualms. She believes in the infallible word of the Bible and that everything we need to know about God is in the Bible.  I find that to be a bit odd, if you want to know the truth.  Still, I have to say that we are the product of His creation.
Yeah, and certain signs point to a Creator
-Our higher functions of decision, conviction, free will...
-The way our hearts are electric
-The way are minds put out frequencies
-The way points on the ear correspond to points on the body in fetal position, and how accupressure points are also in the hand and foot and nerve meridians/facia.
-The way images bypass half our brain and go to our hearts
-How we have two sides of the brain for different purposes (with crossover), which control the opposite side of the body
-How we have two nervous systems, one self-controlled, and one controlled by body chemistry I guess.
Things like this just show a lot of intelligence in a Creator

Do you consider it more likely that the biblical God created us? Or we were designed by Aliens? Or we are the product of atoms randomly smashing together?

Please show your work  ;)
The same math that explains a seashell explains our inner ear shape.  So I think whoever created the earth created us.

Take it from me, Seymour.
Imagine the costs in trying to hide lifelong covert programs that would cause warring if citizens knew about it.  To really hide something nowadays, you'd have to trick, track, monitor, weaken, discredit, and damage the source.  All the while being indetectable, in part by having unlimited traveling, replacement staff available. It would be prohibitively expensive for most organizations, especially ones that are audited.  Now can you figure why some organizations pay $50 for a nut and bolt?!  Because maybe they are "comp'd" other secret technologies with that fee?

How does one synthesize a methylated alkaloid?
I think hormones have something to do with it.

Are some infinities larger than others?  (Mathematicians actually say yes, some are.  But until they actually count them out for me I'm gonna say no.)
Me too.  I see their point, but they obviously aren't fathoming infinity.  Unending is unending, regardless.  There is no end, so neither set is really larger.

No.
Or enjoy humor?  Have convictions?  Have drive?
I am concerned hormones might be used on AI.

Does this dress make me look fat?  Maybe more damned whatever you say than hard to answer.
Best to squirm out of the question or side track it. Or say she looks great in all her clothes. You could point out a dress that is more flattering and say you like it because it shows off her (whatever) better, as long as it is true! 

Some people get away with, "If you have any reservations, why not wear something that you know you like?  Let's go to the mall!"

I would have expected "So you have this pile of acorns"...
When whole systems start to fail.  Kind of like it's ok if I'm broke, and next month my housemate is broke, but if everyone here is broke at the same time then systems start to fail, like sanitation, utilities, rent, food.  So the haystack would be fine until enough is pulled out that it starts to flatten or cave in on itself.

If it meant you could live another few hundred years, would you have your brain transplanted into a robot body?  What about going further and having your consciousness downloaded into a computer?  Would you still be 'you'?  Would it matter?
I wonder if it would matter for soul redemption.  Sometimes I suspect the mark of the beast is an technology rendering humans incapable of uniting with God for eternity, basically on technical grounds.

Coke, but Pepsi is fine too. Dr Pepper is not acceptable under any circumstances.

I found Coke and Pepsi in the US tasted relatively flat. I knew it was going to be different than what I'm used to, but I didn't expect it to be that bad.
There's a store here catering to Ameican expats, but they don't carry American Coke instead selling the Mexican stuff. Tried it and didn't think much of it, but I don't get the point of selling it when our local stuff uses cane sugar anyway.



Coke for regular.   But Pepsi for diet.

There was a green label Coke Life last year with stevia and cane sugar.  It was very expensive, like Hansen's, but it was very good. It was hard to find.

I switched to home brewed iced tea that I sweeten with half raw sugar and half stevia. For some foods, especially dinner, I juste prefer the carbonation. Or maybe it is the phosphoric acid altering the taste of the food. 

I haven't seen a diet cola with stevia yet. I would probably drink that.
I miss saccharin sweetened drinks.  Like Fresca used to be, and RC.

Most likely because you've discerned that I'm your most direct competitor for astrology clients and hot teen poon, and you'd have been right to have done so.


What do you know about astrology.

How do you "check" it?
An indirect way to know there is a problem is to notice if a toilet runs during off-hours for no apparent reason.  I used to sleep near a hot water tank, and the toilet ran in the wee hours during periods of no use, probably from pressure building up.

So I turned on the nearest sink and let it trickle all night to reduce pressure.

I also turned the heater down to 120 to reduce risk.  Not supposed to go over that.

Forums explained how to really test the pressure, but I opted out because I wasn't sure I was strong enough to put the test parts back to normal if they did fail!  And the live in landlady would've had a cow.

Even moving the bed to another wall could reduce risk.  The handyman forums guys laughed at me but after the you tubes, it is no laughing matter.

Best things I did for nutritional health today:
Kept portions small.
Ate protein.
Prepared nutritious food on hand.
Water.
Tried to build what variety I could in (slows digestion).
Let a person around me know what foods I need and got help locating it.
Bookmarked the location here of foods I can eat.

All ketosis is uncomfortable. You'll want four big macs and a greasy whopper with a chocolate shake to mush it all down into your fecal making mechanisms. Throw some so-called chicken nuggets in with all that :D

What one must do is mentally subscribe to the wonderful reality that their body is NATAURALLY burning fat at a very rapid rate, and it's FREE! In fact, for obvious reasons, it saves you money! Until you reach the physical point of diminishing returns (meaning your cells no longer repair themselves the way they did only a few years ago) you must take advantage of what your God given body is capable of while the clock still favors you.


/I'm not yelling at you, just pointing out what should be obvious to the majority of the populous.


I rule.
Ok.  I think I was confused between ketosis and ketoacidosis!

I'm not familiar with that.

Are they trying to create robots that have human emotions? Or some sort of hybrid computer to solve Homo sapien science mysteries ? Or...?
I'm concerned they will introduce hormones to AI.  Scary.  Then robots would have organic drive.

I wonder what it would take for robots to comprehend humor.

Maybe I do not wish to catch it, just bathe in it.
One time a rainbow ended on the freeway against an immediate hill.  The golden light transformed everything!  People in cars all looked at each other, amazed.  It was one of my best days ever.  I got to see first hand why they say there is a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.

23
Took an aerobic walk.
Remembered legumes are gluten free carbs.
Ate fresh produce.

Yes, we should do these things all the time.  But they are just highlights from What I Did for Nutritional Health Today.

Which Chinatown?  When?  Was it yummy?
1996 International District in Seattle.  I should have reported it but was too young to fathom that. There is the chance it was caged for sale as a pet, but I doubt it, as it was not very humanely kept and the place was a food market.

If you had a couple of cats instead, like MV, you'd only have to spend a few minutes sifting their sandbox
My cat likes piddle pads!  Two a day, in her otherwise empty box.  And if I think she is going to poop, I just put a paper towel down on the pad, to take it, which even saves a pad.  She is so funny because she has never been a daily pooper, just every second or third day.  I have been so lucky for so many years!

I am not too much of a cat person.  If the dogs would allow one to hang around the property, I'd feed it but it would have to remain semi-feral and not be an indoors cat.  My dogs aren't too adept at field mousery.

Picking up the winter accumulation of dog-shit affords me the opportunity to evaluate the lawn for areas that need seed, check out the pruning requirements of shrubs & fruit trees, pick up the trash that blows in from the nearby commercial property (I hate them and their fucking packing peanuts), etc.

I find it therapeutic, actually.
I too don't mind cleaning up after Fido at all.  With today's tools and plastic bags, it's really an easy, clean enough job.  Great excuse to get some Vitamin D, monitor growth like you said, and in the summer to run the faucet a little.

Which do you prefer?  I think Jimmy acts kinder but less sponteneous.  Sometimes when George steps in it, it is only because he is being less rehearsed.
Oops, sorry, I meant Richard Syrett acts kinder but less sponteneous than George on the show.
