Re: Remembering...

April 4, 1968. The day MLK was assassinated. I remember like it was yesterday. I was approximately a 1-2 week old embryo.

It was a sad day indeed.

Re: Being a New England sports fan in the 21st century...

Pretty good game, no? Meaning the AFC Championship, not the NFC Championship where the Saints got royally screwed by one of the worst missed calls I've ever seen. But a Pats - Rams Super Bowl rematch? Cool! That was the worst missed call I've ever seen. The Saints got robbed! Before the two games y...

Re: Trump is scaring me

Having read your comments closely I have decided to limit my reply to the one area where I think I have any chance of being a positive influence - spelling/grammar. In a contraction you put the apostrophe in the spot where the missing letter(s) would ordinarily go. For example: does + not = doesn't...

Re: Trump is scaring me

Btw, For those concerned about the cost of an almost 2,000 mile wall from sea to sea, that's not what the president is trying to have. "This is not a concrete structure from sea to sea," he said, addressing some previously expressed concerns about the so-called "wall." "These are steel barriers in h...

Does black privilege exist?

In light of the interview where Areva Martin accused radio host David Webb of benefitting from white privilege, I'm asking if black privilege exists. Let's look at an example of what could possibly be black privilege, where someone benefitted from identifying as black, or African American. We all kn...

If aliens exist how would this chance the bible? Than again we know God created the universe.
I'm not getting the connection. If sentient alien life exists, or has existed in the past, how would that change the Bible?

Re: Trump is scaring me

For the sake of discussion, let's throw away President Trump's $200 plus billion per year, cost of illegal immigrants for the US. Let's take a more centrist estimate, and then tell me if the cost of a border wall/fence, is worth it. https://www.google.com/amp/s/thehill.com/blogs/congress-blog/homela...

Re: Trump is scaring me

Here's a quick story about how boarder walls DO work.* I have a friend who buys real estate that he rents to make money. He got a really good deal on a big, open on the inside, barn. He put up a bunch of walls inside the barn, which made multiple bedrooms. He rented it out to boarders, and made a lo...

Re: Physics jokes

Is it possible to have amnesia and deja vu at the same time? Yes. That happens to me quite often. You know when you walk up a flight of stairs and you think there's one more step at the top? I feel like that, all the time. You know that feeling when you're leaning back in a chair, and you catch you...
