Actually it doesn't. One could conceivably be all-powerful but not exceptionally intelligent.

You figured it out! We were asked to test drive this new forum feature.  :-*

But... but... what about "Atheists have nothing in common; it is like a club for people who don't collect stamps."???

Does this mean we will have to revise the metaphor? Surely the end of times is nigh!

Congratulations.

Thanks Graybeard.  As a matter of fact, it turns out that both Persephone and I had extensive non-stamp collections - it was definitely one of the things we have in common.  You should see our combined stamp non-collection.  It is freakin awesome.

Seriously though, and I don't want to get all mushy here, apart from our religious views it is uncanny in an almost woo-like way how much we do have in common.  We've made lists, so it's not just the romantic buzz talking.

Congrats! I met my hubby on  a Stephen King forum, and it's been the best 7 years of my life. I wish all the same to you.

Ohai, misogyny.

What's wrong with quitting a job for a woman you love?  A job is a thing you only do because somebody pays you.  A romantic partner is presumably someone you're happy to spend time with for free.  Seems like a no-brainer to me.

Edit: Congratulations, Xphobe and Persephone!  Don't worry Xphobe, you'll make a fine liberal once she straightens you out.  *evil grin*

Well, he didn't say that he quit his job and pledged to never get another one. Food/shelter/clothing do not appear to be lacking in the picture provided. :)  Mainly, I don't like the implication of "Duuuuuude, you quit your job for a girl?!  Man, you are so whipped, we might not want to let you in our treehouse anymore."  Note Xphobe's stammered reply.  He's being made to feel ashamed of something that isn't shameful.

Also, for some reason this sort of reaction doesn't come up when a woman leaves her home/family/job to move away with her husband to relocate for his new job.

True, but it applies the opposite way as well, needless to say.

I'm glad you replied because I was thinking about this today. In my teens or 20s, I'm sure I would have given up a job for love (a woman) without a lot of thought or planning. In my 30s - probably ..., given the right woman. Later than that, I doubt it. Why? Because as I get older (and I think this applies to a lot of people) love tends to be a little more "practical". I'd have a whole lot to lose in a bad marriage. And brother, trust me, I've seen a few people lose a ton in divorces.

Is that "pure" or "uninhibited"? Nope. But as a person gets older they have a lot to lose if a relationship goes bad - and the plain fact is, a lot of marriages do end up in divorce due to finances. If you don't believe me, Google it. So, my point is, as we get older (men or women) love takes a backseat to practicality.

Sad but true.

I can't think of a more practical bunch of fatherly advice or reasoning shall we say than Hals. I think we need to get out the 1932 WWGHA refurbished greyhound, gather the troops together, make a road trip to Detroit to do an intervention... for the sanctity of marriage.  :angel:

Funny you mention that. As soon as I read this thread I thought about QM and his easily impressionable forum wife. It took me a long while until I realized it wasn't a prank.

Canadians have cars?

 

Yes, but they only caught on after the TV series "Corner Gas" brought them the trend of gas stations.
