  1. If you use your native language the way it is meant, using proper grammar, you won't have any of these problems.
  2. Meal, ready to eat. Three lies for the price of one.
  3. My fear would be the Nork's chemical weapons. They have enough to wipe out a large chunk of the population of Seoul.
  4. Wayne May has a lot of information about this stuff. Google him.
  5. My wife says my taste is all in my mouth. About the only thing I insist on choosing are ties.
  6. This is some seriously bad stuff when used by the right person. My son is a black belt in both Taekwondo and Kuk Sool Won. When he was stationed at Ft. Bragg in the 82nd Airborne, he was shopping at the Spring Lake Walmart. As he was going to his car, two punks, one with a knife, tried to rob him. I'm not quite sure what he did, but the punk with the knife took an extended nap and was taken away unconscious in an ambulance. The second punk was put on the ground a second or two after the first was disarmed. My son later told me that the second punk obediently stayed on the ground and was desperately grateful when the police came for him.
  7. 34 Behold, there are many called, but few are chosen. And why are they not chosen? 35 Because their hearts are set so much upon the things of this world, and aspire to the honors of men, that they do not learn this one lesson— 36 That the rights of the priesthood are inseparably connected with the powers of heaven, and that the powers of heaven cannot be controlled nor handled only upon the principles of righteousness. 37 That they may be conferred upon us, it is true; but when we undertake to cover our sins, or to gratify our pride, our vain ambition, or to exercise control or dominion or compulsion upon the souls of the children of men, in any degree of unrighteousness, behold, the heavens withdraw themselves; the Spirit of the Lord is grieved; and when it is withdrawn, Amen to the priesthood or the authority of that man. 38 Behold, ere he is aware, he is left unto himself, to kick against the pricks, to persecute the saints, and to fight against God. 39 We have learned by sad experience that it is the nature and disposition of almost all men, as soon as they get a little authority, as they suppose, they will immediately begin to exercise unrighteous dominion. 40 Hence many are called, but few are chosen. (Doctrine and Covenants 121:34–40)
  8. I read part of an article from the leftest yellow rag, Salon, in which the poor little snowflake author was screaming homophobic, bigoted, etc., etc., etc., because of this statement. The communist left are perpetual, eternal victims and everything offends them except when you agree completely with their perverted agenda.
  9. Personally, I don't feel pretty all that often. I'm kinda a homely guy and if you ever saw what I wear, you would realize that what other people think of the way I dress is the faaaaaaaaaarthest thing from my mind.
  10. Right on! This is so very true. You can still lust after your wife.
  11. Lots of advice here about prayer, etc. Why not do as the temple endowment teaches and cast out the evil spirits projecting their thoughts, feelings, and attitudes on you? Download this paper and find out more about it.
  12. Yep. Opinions are like noses - everybody has one and some are bigger than others.
  13. When I read articles like the following is when I have serious doubts about GMO's. The "studies" often are funded by the same companies who make money off their products. Believing that they are unbiased and neutral is a little too credulous for me. A study funded by Monsanto would be like asking the fox to do a safety study on the hen house. The last thing I base my opinion on is the health problems I experience when I have anything with high fructose corn syrup in it. Not only me, but many other people I know, including my children. I've posted studies like this before here, but they were pooh-poohed by those who are more wise than me.
  14. When you can come up with a study that is not sponsored by Monsanto, the U.S. Government, or anyone with financial interests in big agriculture, I'll look at it. I reject out of hand, any study that is funded by Monsanto or the government. Both have serious financial interest in the studies and the researchers are more worried about their funding than the truth. There is a quote from a Scifi author that is applicable in this case. “The bigger the lie, apparently, the more likely the uninformed were to accept it, simply because they couldn't believe any government would tell such an absurd story unless it were true.” ― David Weber, On Basilisk Station Anyone who believes that Monsanto or the government can produce an honest result might be interested in some really good bottom land I have just outside Death Valley. I'll even sell it at a discount.
