  1. I do hope your job situation turns out better than you could have ever hoped, despite the disappointment you experienced a few months ago. Like goodal mentioned, it's difficult to talk about this topic and not have it lead to some sort of religious debate. Can't really talk about effect without debating cause. I agree with Ble. Quoting Tina Fey re: Christopher Hitchens: "It is an impressively arrogant move to conclude that just because you don't like something, it is empirically not good. I don't like Chinese food, but I don't write articles trying to prove it doesn't exist."
  2. I don't like the idea of karma. If all my evil thoughts and all the crap I've pulled over the years comes back to me one day, I'm f*cked. Divine grace is a much more comforting binkie.
  3. Agree to disagree. It doesn't make sense to me, with the sheer number of decisions made outside of my control, why my life has turned out as optimally as it has without some sort of external guidance. There really should be more senseless tragedies scattered randomly throughout my life and yet even the sad times make sense in the larger context of where I'm heading. But I'm not nearly sufficient enough of a sample size to prove anything.
  4. I know you're just goodal but personally I think I add value to the lives of people around me despite being a hardcore theist.
  5. Happy birthday Audi!
  6. The link is broken but I got the gist of the joke
  7. In this life, there's no way to definitively prove whether or not things "just happen", but I think your attitude matters much more than a theoretical higher force's design. Even if life is random, one can view it as random random (shit just happens) or random good (shit happens but eventually for the best). I think people who have hope generally have better outcomes, because they're able to take the positive out of a crappy situation and move forward with minimal discouragement. Plus they're generally more pleasant to be around. @Road Guy are you guys pregnant again or something?
  8. Damn, someone's been doing his kegels.
  9. Congrats @leggo PE! Especially in CA, that's no small feat!
  10. I've been on boards with much swifter ban hammers. Trolls like canadagoose would have been booted long ago on most other boards. RG and KF are teddy bears (love you boos)
  11. Two chicks at the same time, man.
  12. Not Netflix, but we started watching the new season of Twin Peaks last night. It's even better than the first season in that we have no idea what's happening but it's so creepy and somehow so addictive at the same time. It's kind of fun to see how the actors have aged over time too.
  13. HBD tank!
  14. Can we punish NJ anyway?
  15. Kristen Stewart prefers clam sushi.
