After a weekend full of engagements and marriages from friends around me, I realize I am in trouble.

Because of the conversion, am I ever going to be married? I feel that, being a convert, I will never become a true insider, even though I believe with all my heart. How does courtship even work, really, cause I’ve never gotten good directions.

I get the feeling I am at a massive social disadvantage, which, combined with my Autism, put me in an impossible disadvantage.

Virginia Republican Blames Democrats For GOP’s Secret Redistricting Plan

Virginia Senate Republican Leader Tommy Norment defended Monday’s GOP sneaky maneuver to subvert majority rule and gerrymander the Senate maps as nothing more than politics. And, even though he voted for the current bipartisan maps, he blamed Senate Democrats for having employed an unfair process two years ago.

Norment conceded that the sneak attack “may have been annoying, painful, and even strained some friendships,” but attacked Senate Democrats for being sanctimonious:

To all CA and National Republicans who I might otherwise support;

Its because of shitheads like this, I won’t vote for you.

I’m an atheist who has autism. I got married. In fact I’ve been married for 36 years and have two kids, one also has autism. She has two kids, the oldest — 16 years old has high functioning autism, the other is too young to know for sure if he has autism.

It isn’t a death sentence, it doesn’t stop you from developing relationships, and it doesn’t put you in an impossible disadvantage.

Around November and December, after being hit down socially after trying so hard for what literally might be the thousandth time, I gave up. I have begun to withdraw and freeze over, and have largely stopped going out of my way to help.God cares, but Humans have free will, and I have not had a good experience with that in about 18 months to the day.

You forecast off of perceived conditions when your inner biases are biasing those perceptions in a negative direction. Stop fooling yourself that you are being dispassionate and unemotional in your analysis. Humans, as a rule, react initially with emotion. Deny that and you’ll assume you are being logical when you aren’t.

Norway goat cheese fire closes tunnel

About 27 tonnes of caramelised brown goat cheese - a delicacy known as Brunost - caught light as it was being driven through the Brattli Tunnel at Tysfjord, northern Norway, last week.

The fire raged for five days and smouldering toxic gases were slowing the recovery operation, officials said.

The tunnel - which is said to be badly damaged - is likely to remain closed for several weeks, they added.

“We can’t go in until it’s safe,” geologist Viggo Aronsen told Norwegian broadcaster NRK.

You’ve just inserted another stumbling block that doesn’t need to be there. What you need is to retrain your brain, to change which emotions and ideas group together. That can be done with the help of a psychologist/psychiatrist. As far as human contact is concerned, humans are animals. I’m not suggesting that we act less than human, but that some of our reactions are instinctive. As you push people, they will recognize stress and desperation in your actions and will tend to back away.

Medical professionals can teach you to modify your stress levels, and how you react to others so your actions fit in better with their expectations.

That was part of my grandson’s training.

But it takes time, lots of time, and effort on your part.

Outrage grows as records reveal bishops covered-up California sex abuse

Victims of child sex abuse by Roman Catholic clerics voiced anger after newly-released records showed church leaders discussing how to cover up priests’ alleged crimes in California in the 1980s.

Prosecutors also said they wanted to study the previously confidential records, including exchanges involving then Los Angeles Archbishop Roger Mahony about how to prevent police hearing about alleged abuse cases.

Excerpts from the documents were published Monday by The Los Angeles Times, including exchanges between Mahony and a top aide talking about how to conceal pedophile priests from law enforcement.

Climate change has shrunk Andean glaciers between 30 and 50 percent since the 1970s and could melt many of them away altogether in coming years, according to a study published on Tuesday in the journal Cryosphere.

We need paperwork to buy or sell a car, to register to vote, to obtain a permit for an peaceful assembly. But the NRA says any paperwork for a gun transfer is tyranny.

The truth is the NRA represents the firearms industry. And they need to keep increasing sales or their businesses will fail. But guns don’t wear out like other products do say for example cars, once you have the guns you need for self defense or hunting you are pretty much set.

So the NRA needs to be out there 24/7 drumming up sales by scaring people.

Looks like Netanyahu isn’t as popular as some right-wingers had hoped:

Netanyahu wins narrow victory in Israeli elections

Benjamin Netanyahu’s right-wing Likud-Beitenu list won a narrow victory in legislative elections but was weakened by the unexpectedly strong showing by the centrist Yesh Atid, which campaigned on economic issues.

The result is likely to cramp Netanyahu’s room for manoeuvre vis-a-vis his future coalition partners.

Television exit polls showed Netanyahu’s Likud, which ran on a joint list with the hardline nationalist Yisrael Beitenu, suffering a serious setback, winning just 32-33 mandates in the 120-seat Knesset, down from 42 in the outgoing coalition.


And in an unexpected development, Yesh Atid, a secular centrist party launched just nine months ago, came in second place with 18-19, followed by the centre-left Labour with 16-17.

I’d say so. I’d also say they don’t recognize the fact.

That’s what I’ve always found kind of funny. The way many will talk about violence in movies but only focus on Quentin Tarantino yet Dirty Harry movies aren’t mentioned nor is anything with Charles Bronson. It’s basically a selective criticism of Hollywood. Now that’s just the violent movies. Of course their general disgruntlement is about alleged liberal plots such as China Syndrome. I have my qualms about movies violence but I think we should include everyone in the mix. It’s not that important for me however. People will complain about Zero Dark Thirty too. In the end, it’s a movie. Don’t like it, don’t go. It’s all a fantasy anyway and we should treat them like adults. I was kind of mesmerized by Saw but that doesn’t mean it’s my new mantra. Or something.

re: #18 ProBosniaLiberal

After a weekend full of engagements and marriages from friends around me, I realize I am in trouble.

Because of the conversion, am I ever going to be married? I feel that, being a convert, I will never become a true insider, even though I believe with all my heart. How does courtship even work, really, cause I’ve never gotten good directions.

I get the feeling I am at a massive social disadvantage, which, combined with my Autism, put me in an impossible disadvantage.

I need something else to bring me out. Something a Psychiatrist, try as they might, can’t given me.

I need a non-computer person to reach out to me, then not abandon me. Because I haven’t had the first in a very long time, and the second occurs monthly at least.

If that can happen, I should be begin to recover.

That’s putting your fate in someone else’s hands and asking quite a bit of someone, particularly if it’s someone you just met or have only known for a short time. Great friendship develop gradually over time, not instantly. I’m worried that you’ll scare people away.

The Unification Wars

The Unification Wars, also known as the Wars of Unification, the Unity Wars, The Unification or just The Unity, were a series of conflicts fought on Terra during the 30th Millennium at the end of the Age of Strife. It was during these campaigns that the Emperor of Mankind first publicly revealed himself to a desperate humanity and began his conquest of Terra to unify the techno-barbarian nations that dominated the sacred homeworld of Mankind and forge the foundation of the Imperium of Man.

And a bonus:

Thunder Warriors

The Thunder Warriors were the genetically-engineered warriors of Terra created by the Emperor of Mankind to unite the homeworld of humanity beneath his rule in the 30th Millennium. They were the first gene-enhanced warriors created by the Emperor and served as the precursors to the present-day Space Marines. Wrought to be living weapons, the Thunder Warriors were known to be physically stronger, more savage and more potent in combat than the later Astartes, though they were not as long-lived. Imperial chronicles hold that the last of the legendary Thunder Warriors died heroically during the final battle of the Unification Wars in the late 30th Millennium that reunified Terra beneath the single rule of the Emperor and forged the government that would become the Imperium of Man. The truth of the matter was far different, for the Thunder Warriors’ fate was bound up in the terrible price that the Emperor proved willing to pay to secure a better future for Mankind.

I’m guessing it’s because he lost weight. Zeal of the covert and all. Anyhoo, it was a weird little shitshow. My wife— who’s passed her step 1 medical boards, the first part of the licensing exams for becoming an MD, and representing all that there book-learnin’, absolutely agreed that talking about being fat as just a choice was about as uselessly oversimplistic as you can get. She also pointed out that timing in calorific intake matters too— some people, if they fluctuate between eating a lot and not eating much at all, will gain weight, and some will lose weight.

So even if one person only ‘needs’ 1600 calories a day, and eats that on average over a month, but actually is eating 2400 calories for a few days and then 800 calories for a few days, he might gain weight if he’s one kind of person, or lose weight if he’s another. So there you have two with the same calorific needs demonstrably not simply following a linear energy transfer to fat, but instead showing the complexities of metabolism and the whole goulash of hormones associated with eating and fat production and everything else related to the subject.

Yep. Plus as I mentioned, eating disorders. People become addicted to food to mediate depression. It becomes a drug more or less. Other factors can include medication such as steroids prescribed for diseases. Pre-disposed genetic factors — yes some are born with “fat genes.” Poverty leads to poor diet and lends itself to obesity.

Hormones are an absolute bitch when it comes to your metabolism. Ask any woman dealing with PCOS about how hard she works to lose weight, even with a healthy diet, exercise, and hormone balancing medications being taken into account. It’s not fun.

It is like telling an anorexic, “you just need to eat more.” It’s kind of absurd. I would have been willing to argue it but not call people dumb, stupid, etc.

Speaking from experience, it’s been a little tough for me to lose weight. Diet is one thing but exercise can be tough for me because of my heart condition. [Link: en.wikipedia.org…]
I was real lucky to get diagnosed with it before my freshman year of high school because I had planned to go out for the freshman football team and even the freshman at my high school had to practice every day in the late summer months.

LVQ often fell so deeply in love with his own opinions, there was no pulling him back once he staked his territory.

Smart dude. Stubborn as they come. Not the best combo sometimes.

It’s not exactly mutually exclusive. There’s an old saying about there being a little madness with genius. Same thing can be said about intelligence and stubborness I think. At least that’s my experience with myself. I can be real stubborn sometimes.

Yes, LVQ refused to play nice simply, while at the same time missing the whole point of the original post.

Definitely something else then.

Life’s problems. Don’t let it get the best of ya. Or at least try.

Indeed. His insult of Alouette was both ugly and foolish, leaving Charles with little choice but to swing the ax.

I completely cut high fructose corn syrup out of my diet around Thanksgiving. My eating habits have changed noticeably, mostly because I’m not starving for real food anymore and trying to fill up on junk, and I’m losing weight. Calories are important, but its also what you eat.

My first instinct was to try to remember who Semmelweis was on Red Dwarf

Fabulous.

Fabulous.

I saw the original concert in Australia, Paco De Lucia, Al Di Meola and John McLaughlin.

Steve Morse was the support act.

I’m a guitar player, what I remember most was the blurred left hands.

re: #169 sattv4u2

His basic premise was correct, but he tried to make it all encompassing. Why someone is obese (or not) goes far beyond a caloric intake/ burning it off formula

Yep. This is something that there is an entire nutritionist/fitness industry built on - the fact that individuals react sometimes in a diametrically opposed fashion on dietary/exercise regiments. The human body just has too many variables for a one size fits all approach. Even slight changes in body chemistry can cause severe acceleration, or even reversal in weight loss/gain.

Why the Temperature of the Yellow Sea Is a Big Deal, and Other Questions About the South Korean Ferry Disaster
The boat ran into trouble several dozen miles from Jindo, an island that sticks out of South Korea's southwestern corner like a little toe. Jindo is surrounded by a group of even smaller islands that are slightly farther afield from the mainland. The ferry was curving around those small islands at the time it issued a distress call. What caused the disaster? We ...

Calgary stabbings: How knife crime in Canada can cause ‘moral panic’

Instead, the 22-year-old suspect identified on Tuesday as Matthew de Grood is accused of entering the kitchen at a house party, taking "a large knife" and using it to fatally stab four men and one woman, all of whom were students ...

The Insane History of Rockets at Jet Propulsion Laboratories
The Rocket Boys In the late 1930s, a group of Caltech graduate students were booted off campus after blowing up (part of!) their building during a rocket test gone awry. Unwilling to give up on the joy of semi-controlled explosions, the students and a few of their friends headed into the San Gabriel Mountains. They picked a deserted gully -- Arroyo Seco -- ...
