    What does it mean if I'm perpetually stuck in between a baby-smooth face and some serious Santa-Stubble? My beard is mostly pure white these days. My youngest daughter wants me to put on a few pounds...

    I think people who interpret the christian bible as accurate prophecy have got the cart in front of the horse, much to the loud public laughter of the Jews descended from its authors. The bible is...

    I had a unique reason for wanting a family, in that my own family was a complete disaster (my parents abandoned me, I was put into foster care, I ended up being adopted, but it all worked out great...

    I genuinely understand and sympathize with those who've made truly shitty decisions in their lives that have led to their own suffering and even more so for the ones whom they love. Life is rough,...

    I've been a fan of the following theory(ies) for years. I don't think that Latin (the language of monkish pederasts and perverts for All of Time) has a unique claim to the term "Scot":

  9. Not new, but I feel new - so more greeting, less introduction.

    It's been a big year. Did a lot of traveling to northern Europe, met some (maybe) blood relations - that story will bear out in the next few weeks, probably. It's been an interesting time and I'm...

    Gentrification is All Powerful.

    I'm not being argumentative, I'm merely playing Devil's Advocate about your point (Velvet) that "there's no place to go". Without question, we still go where ever we want to go and completely take...

    Dealing with the Bullshit...

    Dealing with the Bullshit is my biggest peeve these days. Having to constantly refute the bullshit before we can even have a decent conversation (and usually, without the bullshit, there actually IS...

  13. Poll! Collar Mobility?

    I wonder how many people have a similar experience to my own, which involves several transitions (and a few more to come) from white to blue and back again. For instance I spent a while as an...

  15. Poll! Less Frey, More Njord

    Short and sweet: when our ancestors couldn't stomach being trapped on their land (murderous kings, lackeys of the pope, traitorous backstabbing neighbors, y'know, like TODAY), they took to the sea. ...

    Important! Poll! Hell, yes, it was. Rather "Heliand Yes..."

    Too right, Plantagenet!

    The Christianity sold to or forced upon our northern European ancestors was completely unlike that of today. Our ancestors simply rejected the meek lambkin of a grubby...

    I was born on a Thursday, and for several decades now I have had the very same personal ritual, which is to celebrate my "Birth Day of the Week", meaning that every Thursday of every week I do...
