"Since you probably won't have a access to a kiln to fire the finished sculpture - I would use one of the Amoco self hardening clays. They have a mexican pottery clay that air hardens to a nice red, without needing glazing or other decoration -…"

"This is not a "modern, atheistic version" if anything - its an earlier form.  Epictetus (and his writer/student Arrian) were later (new Stoic) - and again not all Stoics were of the same mold. His idea of "god" was…"

Liam S. replied to Greg Konrad's discussion Beginner Woodworking
"Nice post, Charles. I much prefer doing dovetails by hand (over using a router). Not sure why.  I made my own dovetail gauge - using a pattern similar to this one: http://paulsellers.com/2011/12/making-the-paul-sellers-dovetail-template/That…"

Liam S. replied to Greg Konrad's discussion Beginner Woodworking
"Not really. I just use basic Stanley wood chisels. 1/4", 1/2" and 3/4" get the most use. Just get them good and sharp. You want handles that wont let them just roll off onto your floor/toes. Otherwise, nothing special is needed at…"

Liam S. replied to Greg Konrad's discussion Beginner Woodworking
"Yes. Dovetail saw (or you can get away with a coping saw), and some chisels. I do 90% of my woodworking with hand tools only. In fact, it's arguably harder to do a lot of things in woodworking with power tools.  If you get a coping…"

Liam S. replied to Bobby G Mullen's discussion Stoicism in the group Philosophers
"Nope. Of some (maybe even many), but not all. And God(s) as interpreted by the Stoics would be pretty unrecognizable in any current religious system. And indeed, is not even a necessary component in the ancient sense (determinism does not need a…"

Ricky replied to Liam S.'s discussion Interesting perspective - Discrimination? in the group Gentlemen Atheists

Interests
Mid-thirties, with a wife and 18 month old son, living and working in Chicago. I'm a graphic designer/art director for a large consulting firm, and also run my own architectural and product photography business.

I am an atheist, a kalderash rom (gypsy), whiskey drinker, cigar smoker, kilt wearer, do-it-yourselfer, and poet... I am a casual (and perpetual) student of languages, go player, philosophy, physical sciences, mythology, literature and psychology.

I write articles for and work in roma-rights, as well as volunteering and acting as a committee member for other charities and service organizations.

Roma-rights is ethnic focused rather than regaining rights to a traditionally migratory/transient lifestyle in the modern world?

I have to ask what exactly, say in bullet points, would "roma-rights" include?

Thanks for joining the Airships group!

I did not approve your statement because I would rather not have a pitched battle on my profile. Feel free to respond on yours or a forum post, though. I would gladly join in. Thanks anyway for your input.

John wont approve my comments there, so I had to tell you here. 

That was hilarious. Whether it was intended to be or not.

Te aves Baxtalo, I was discussing the use of Gypsy as a Slur and though raised where it was I fear I've become desensitized to it as the infantry turned it to a nickname. How do you feel about it in your life?

Thank you! ^^ though im still rather on the fence of atheism or believing in something. So agnostic might be the way i go. In either case. Thank you an i shall look around, as this is MUCH better then facebook, as this has more a purprose.

I think so too. Thank you for the welcome.
