Why does NZ have to import idiotic bullshit like a Black Friday sale when its not a Black Friday that has any meaning to us!!?? Holy sweet [Explentive laden rant] NZ does not have thanks giving. It means nothing to us like Halloween. Find another name for it if you must have a sale you numbskull marketeers. Holy F***! ..... I feel buch better now. Thanks
R. S. MartinI had to look up why Friday's supposed to be black only to find it's got to do with the American Thanksgiving. Didn't know they have them in New Zealand, too, on the other side of the globe. That's just ridiculous.

LogicalFallacyYep, hence my expletive laden rant upon my inbox being assaulted this morning with Black Friday specials.... just in case you are wondering what triggered such an illogical outburst :)

Walked into someone from ex-roomie's church the other day. Saw her again today. If she goes beyond small talk I will have a hard time containing myself.
All I want in life is to be happy, is it that hard to get there? What I have had going on last few months seems to be just one of those, well it was to good to be true and I actually achieve it. I am so tired of this.
MargeeI have come to the conclusion that life is about survival and the strongest (and luckiest) survive. Happiness comes and goes. The main thing is to survive. I make life into a game now. Hang in there sweetie. (hug)

"Look at those silly people acting like idiots on Black Friday across the pond!" "..." Let's adopt that behaviour!"
Lilith666I know what you mean. I'm already too connected to the Internet... and here I am on Ex-C.

DeidreI live across the pond from you and I think Black Friday is stupid, too. ^_^
Nov 23 2016 09:20 PM
rjnYeah, as I wrote above, I don't mean Americans in general, just those fools who'll fight over some shitty electronic gadget come friday. Good to see you btw, Deidre :)

One thing i learned from the last election. Im fundementally apolitical.
FreeThinkerNZNo one is immune from the effects of politics. You either have a say or others decide for you.

ShinzonThat isnt to say i dont have a opinion. Its just not something i hold on high regard anymore.
Nov 22 2016 12:34 AM
FreeThinkerNZThat's probably a good thing. It shows you're questioning what you hear.

Wonder when youth will finally be unwilling to fight old people's wars? Maybe when they learn to spot the propaganda and old men's lies? Cato the Younger
florduhSince they've had more than 2,000 years to catch on since he said that, I'm guessing it ain't gonna happen.

Well this is high weapons grade stupid: having a crush on your boss who is in a committed relationship.
Nov 18 2016 06:02 PM
RealityCheckIf by "high grades weapon" you mean nuking your livelihood then yes.
Nov 18 2016 06:26 PM
ShinzonThat is exactly what i meant reality check

Of the ten posts right now, two seem to be about leaving Christianity. The others are mainly political. Where is the focus of this once-vibrant online community? Just sayin'.

FreeThinkerNZIt comes and goes, depending on how many people happen to be deconverting at the time. Others enjoy talking off topic. You get out what you put in.
Nov 17 2016 02:18 AM
sdelsolrayI'll say what I said before about this. Most of the political hacks on this forum use the same devices as creationists, it's just a different subject. Lies, fallacies, mere assertions and wishful thinking abound.
I agree that it will tone down as time passes.

And here comes the Christian sermons on God judging sin... by causing earthquakes. http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/86551648/opinion-brian-tamaki-can-go-to-hell-but-his-followers-can-still-be-saved I used to believe this stuff! I'm horrified.
FreeThinkerNZThis guy is known for getting rich off the "tithes" of his low-income churchgoers. He also gets govt contracts for providing social services. Disgraceful.
Nov 16 2016 09:24 PM
LogicalFallacyYep, followed him in the news for years. He started out not 'too bab' but has gone weird, wonder, wacky, and now plain abhorrent.
