Tonight is the night - GoT 6th season begins squeeee!
Lilith666Makes me sad that I can't watch it tonight because I don't have cable; just discovered the few channels I do have don't include HBO. Oh well... :(

DeidreWell, don't think you missed too much. It was meh for a debut to season 6. My opinion. On a scale from 1 to 10, 10 being the best, I'd say it was a 6? Maybe I got spoiled from binge watching lol

WarriorPoetGoT season premieres are notoriously weak, and tonight's was no exception. They did lay the groundwork for a highly entertaining season though.

Why are my favorite characters always self-loathing, sarcastic, self-destructive, and/or manipulative misanthropes? This is a pattern. It's creeping me out D:

Lilith666Mr. Gold/Rumplestiltskin in Once Upon a Time, Tyrion from Game of Thrones (so he's not self-loathing, but still jaded and sarcastic), Helga Pataki in Hey Arnold!, and Squidward from SpongeBob are the ones I'm thinking of. The old SpongeBob episodes, not the cruddy new ones. But anyway.

Just discovered how loosing faith really widens your jokes spectrum :D

In Christianity, fear reigns in a "what if" world.
rjnNo kidding. Pascal's Wager is brought up every damn time, it's their favourite argument.

StormThis idea popped into my brain when I read a post on my facebook feed about how a woman cant go to target anymore because she cant take her granddaughter to the bathroom any more because of the whole transgender stance that Target is taking. She is all "what if some man who thinks he is a woman attacks my granddaughter" shpiel. Life is full of "what ifs". So what?

Probably killed my laptop. Hallelujah.
yuneaDamn! :( What happened?
Apr 23 2016 01:21 AM
rjnI'm to blame myself I guess. No biggie, it was old and kinda sucked, but yeah, it was totally unnecessary and a bit lame.

In my country, babies are normally made to join the Lutheran church. In the recent years, it's became less weird to cancel your membership of it in adulthood. I FINALLY did it today after making sure it doesn't cause anyone any trouble (such as regarding my funeral some day) - and it doesn't, not these days!! I'M FREE!!!!
offtheromanroadCongrats! Did you have to pay a fee?
I am thinking about doing this, too, but since I don't work in my home country, the main problem doesn't concern me as much - they can't deduct any church tax from my salary.
Apr 23 2016 07:59 AM
yuneaNo fee, just a little online form to fill. Even the "why are you leaving" field was optional, though I did answer that one that I'm atheist and won't support religion anymore.

diggindiddycongratulations :) it's a big step. Treat yourself to celebrate !

“I wish to see our people hardy, vigorous, strong, able to hold their own in whatever test may arise. I wish to see them able to work and able to play hard. I believe in play, and I like to see people play hard while they play, and when they work I do not want to see them play at all.” –Theodore Roosevelt
Wow something truly has changed in me. Turns out someone is dating a doctor who attends a tiny, particularly weird Pente church, and my reaction is "ew! I hope that guy is never MY doc!". The old me would have been delighted to know of such a man.
I really would like to overcome this feeling that somebody is watching me all the time...
offtheromanroadAs in big brother aka god watching you? It takes time, but will very likely fade.
Apr 23 2016 08:00 AM
diggindiddyExactly :) Thanks, that's comforting ! I can't wait to feel alone and that my thoughts are mine only.
Apr 24 2016 03:10 AM
offtheromanroadYes, it takes time, but it will most probably happen. I sometimes still have to remind myself I am alone, but each time I realize, it feels great! You will get there!

I'm just glad they make decent gluten free cookies. Being gluten free sucks.
TheLyniezianSome gluten free stuff is OK but the bread I find is useless and sticks in my teeth.
Apr 17 2016 02:05 AM
TheLyniezianNot to mention it's almost always more expensive and near impossible to find outside the bigger supermarkets and maybe health food stores here. (I do most of my shopping in convenience stores, Aldi or downtown.)

AiyanaSorry, SL! I feel you. Right now I'm on a six-week elimination diet to determine what I'm allergic to. No wheat, dairy, soy, nuts, eggs, or seafood. It's crappy.

Watching God's Not Dead. I don't know if I can do this.
TheLyniezianActually watched this at church last year when I was still a (struggling) believer. Don't know how I'd react to it now.
Apr 17 2016 02:04 AM
Lilith666Update: I got through 45 minutes of it yesterday(this is my second attempt) and told myself I would watch the rest today. I really just want to be able to say I did it. God, this is a bad movie.
Apr 17 2016 08:31 AM
yuneaI could challenge myself to watching this and the new Batman vs Superman. I guess I'm going to need a lot of alcohol and chocolate and someone to tell me to not stop!
Apr 25 2016 02:53 AM
I'm not saying I have a problem, but I downloaded and listened to like eight Pink Floyd bootlegs in the past week.
yuneaCan't judge you, "The Division Bell" is one of my favourite albums in the world, ever.
