Conspiracy theory I know but old republicans occurred to me they wanted to start the second coming by invading ME, prophesy etc.

Hey they are old and exploited all the resources they could, the next logical step heaven, Apocalypse etc.

I had to explain to a friend last week that our laws in the US are not based on the bible or Judeo/Christian values. This law here in the OP is what it would be like if our laws were based on Judeo/Christian morals.
if they were based on Christian biblical rules would the US be the giant war machine it is? Thought shall not kill and all..... as far as the OP,its hard to believe that there is still bronze age treatment of 50% of a population anywhere on this planet in the 21st century....... although Trump and his chronies seem hell bent on taking the American people back a few hundred years at least.

Chatter / kava
« Last post by velkyn on April 23, 2017, 03:25:27 PM »
I'm trying kava again to see how it does with my anxiety issues.  It seems to be working very well and it's been a while since I've felt this good.  The first time I tried kava, it didn't seem to work at all.   The stuff I got now, Kava King Vanuatu Blend, is described as "instant" so it is very powdered.   

anyone else use it?

Have just started to play Silent Hill 4 again (I started to some years back but then my PlayStation 2 stopped working so I couldn't finish). This song is now kind of stuck in my head after I played the subway level at the start of the game:

Sexuality, Reproduction, & Abortion / Re: does promiscuity cause suffering?

JB, I think at this point you realize you were incorrect and continue to post despite not answering the questions simply because you do not like to admit you were wrong. I can understand that, it's not fun being wrong. But admitting and changing your stance makes you better in that you are more correct than you previously were.


There is no withdrawal. I also don't function well with lack of food, or sleep, or money, etc. It's not withdrawal from those things, it's that those things are necessary to live how I would consider comfortably. I do not suffer because I have made it a point to not lack sexually.

I truly am sorry that what happened to you made you think that a natural function of human life is suffering, but your experience is not universal. You are going to have to understand that if you ever want to make some progress.

Sexuality, Reproduction, & Abortion / Re: does promiscuity cause suffering?

Yes. Basically, I suffer when I am not sexually active. A venn diagram with my sexual activity and promiscuity would be almost a perfect circle. This seems to fly in the face of what JB is proposing. My question would be how would JB account for my suffering? How would she explain my lack of suffering when I have varying partners?

You said you suffer not me.  I posted and defined promiscuous a few pages back. 

I said I wasn't a mind reader and asked the questions I think will help me understand what you are saying.
"When I am not sexually active" is the key phrase. If I am sexually active then I am not suffering. When I am sexually active I am also being promiscuous. This flies exactly opposite to what your initial assertion was. You see how, no?

It does not fly in the face of withdrawal.  Your suffering sounds like withdrawal. 

Are the women in your life suffering too?  You know when you're not sexing them up? 

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2945841/

For instance, some patients present with clinical features that resemble an addictive disorder—i.e., continued engagement in the behavior despite physical or psychological consequences, a loss of control, and a preoccupation with the behavior.

You said:
Hmmm...

All I know is when I am not sufficiently sexed I cannot get my life in order. Work slips, personal relationships slip, my house slips... everything gets worse. Since I have only ever been in one serious relationship ever, my entire sex life is promiscuous. How does JB's opinion coincide with my reality?

That is, i.e negative consequences.

That would be pretty stupid, seeing as there would be a ton of people who would be against it, same as what happened with Prohibition.
