When people call religious hatred of the LGBTQ+ community "homophobia" I get a little twitch.

Homophobia is a fear of homosexual people, and religious intolerance of homosexuality is not based on fear, it's based on scripture.

Homophobic people can overcome their fear, but scripture can't be changed.

+Kee Hinckley Yes indeed. I would amend that slightly, though. It is "the fear that men will treat you the way you treat women".

Lots of good reasons to go to Utah. Almost none of which involve the cities, towns, or people.

Zion, Arches, Bryce Canyon, Canyonlands, Capitol Reef NPs.
Grand Staircase-Escalante, Flaming Gorge...
Goblin Valley...

I've been quiet regarding my depression of late... This is more because I felt that the every day posts were becoming repetitive.

Things are moving. I've been on these pills for a few months, now, and considering I've had some setbacks in that time, I haven't fallen deep again. I really need my luck to change, but there's no sign of that happening.

I'm moving forward on a few things, though, and I spent the last four weeks playing chauffeur, so that was good for me. It got me out of the house a lot more.

There's no quick fix to depression. If things go well, there's always the possibility of it falling apart again.

But yes, moving forward :)

So, if one can control it without it being linked...I'll just exit this thread on this note, you like what I consider un-necessary linkage of systems, I prefer things that retain a certain amount of un-connectivity.
Have a lovely day.

The Signs As Monsters

Aries: Fast and deadly. They blend into the forest. Will kill you without making a sound. You won't see them until it's too late.

Taurus: Eyes like steel. Spikes stick out from their shoulders. They have a growl that makes your bones vibrate. You hear it before you see it.

Gemini: Red eyes and black feathers. They come come down from the sky in flocks and carry victims away in their claws. They hunt at twilight.

Cancer: They look like beautiful people, but their nails are too sharp and their hair is long and wild. They lure people to their deaths with their attractiveness and sweet voices.

Leo: Giant beasts that tower over the trees. Bright scales and rows of teeth. They have a ferocious roar that shakes the ground. They enjoy stepping on people but are careful to not hurt other monsters.

Virgo: Small but clever. With large violet eyes and grey fur. They will snuggle into your arms and then scratch and slice you with their claws. They always win.

Libra: Slithers in trees with glistening scales. They strangle passing humans and eat them whole.

Scorpio: Very very fast. You only see a passing shadow. If you feel a sharp pinch then you're already doomed. It only takes a few moments for the poison to set in.

Sagittarius: Bright eyes and gorgeous teeth. They float behind you and sing lullabies in a strange language until you fall asleep. You'll never wake up.

Capricorn: They decorate the forest with exotic flowers and grow vines from their tail. It will come at you from behind as you admire their work.

Aquarius: They look like humans with extra limbs. Too many arms and legs. Five eyes and no nose. Yet they move beautifully and aren't actually dangerous. People just fear them because they do not understand them.

Pisces: They move in packs and hiss at the moon. They have bright blue eyes and silver fur. They come at you from all directions.

Yep, Taurus. I'm good with that :D

I am all for a burkini ban.

Not the garment. The word.

Trying to make a burka sound sexy, and somewhat akin to a bikini is just plain dumb. The only sexy thing about a burkini is... Nothing!

I call it false advertising :P

It's a very silly word. It turns out I was already swimming in about half of one, because I wear a rash guard. (The sun is insidious.)

Write a different sort of letter to +Secret Santa :D
Greetings from the North Pole!

The Elves and I would like to gauge the interest in continuing Secret Santa this year.

We'd very much appreciate it if you could take the time to fill out this brief survey.

About Me

+Scredible Brand Evangelist

I'm a writer, I dabble in photography, cooking, and playing guitar. I usually run IT departments as either manager or head of tech. I like doing it because it's cranial work.

I'm a happy man. I'll not say I'm well balanced (even though I am, sort of)... I'd rather say I'm acceptably crazy.

I play Group Captain McInnes in HG World. I also play other voices around the web!

I'm harmless... Mostly ;)

Steeped in literary history, this pub is a wonderful place to go when you need to be inspired as a writer. With a great selection of good and drinks, plus friendly staff, the Eagle and Child, also known as the Bird and Baby by locals, is a must visit for any buzzing authors visiting Oxford!

While all Costco's have the common theme of good quality, low prices, and great deals, this Costco had the best and friendliest service team. From the greeter to the tyre department, everyone is helpful and polite!
