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

    I 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.

    Yep, 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.

    I 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)

    Yeah, 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 :)

    No one is immune from the effects of politics. You either have a say or others decide for you.

    That's probably a good thing. It shows you're questioning what you hear.

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'.

    It 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.

    I'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.

    This guy is known for getting rich off the "tithes" of his low-income churchgoers. He also gets govt contracts for providing social services. Disgraceful.
