Kit the Odd replied to Braeden's discussion Free Will in the group The Great Debate
"Personally I believe in free will from a religious perspective.  But I also believe that a) arguing from a religious "because I said so" stance is useless and b) that God tends to work within the established rules and c) that there…"

Kit the Odd replied to David R.'s discussion Manspreading
"Yeah, I'm a large guy and I tend to carry a backpack.  If the seats are empty - I'm going to take the space, both for my legs and for my bag.  But if the area starts to fill in?  The pack goes under the seat or in the…"

Kit the Odd replied to David R.'s discussion Manspreading
"Everybody sing along! Do your balls hang low? Do they wobble to and fro? Can you tie them in a knot? Can you tie them in a bow? Can you throw them over your shoulder like a Continental soldier? Do your balls hang low?"

Kit the Odd replied to Conor's discussion I need help moving on, it's been six weeks now.
"I am not any type of psychiatric professional, so take this as just an opinion. I think she may be your mental "comfort blanket" for the depression you are in.  When I am plagued by the black dog I often "self-medicate"…"

Kit the Odd replied to Stewart M. Davenport's discussion What are everyone's favorite EDC pocket knives?
"I think Liam has a big part of it - our kids are taught by school policy that knives are scary.  And since they aren't allowed to carry them for most of their day (during the school year) they don't develop the habit. But I have to…"

Kit the Odd replied to Stewart M. Davenport's discussion What are everyone's favorite EDC pocket knives?
"Gerber Paraframe.  Not great, but good enough. I work in an office so it is good enough for the basic day to day usage.  And I tend to misplace my knives (or they walk off - possibly with help), so at less than $20 I don't feel…"

Kit the Odd replied to David R.'s discussion Transgender Persons in the Military in the group The Great Debate
"One point I've seen raised a couple of places is the need for ongoing drugs and/or hormones.  Given the austere nature of the battle field that is a concern - just as it is for other conditions that require ongoing medical attention. On…"

Kit the Odd replied to Sir's discussion How politics destroys it
"I think a lot of it does come down to what people consider part of their identity.  It is one reason religion can be such a sensitive topic. When you have embraced something in such a way that anything that does not support that thing is…"

Kit the Odd replied to Vendetta's discussion Fermi Paradox
"Short answer: The Fermi Paradox is an interesting thought experiment. Linking climate change to the Fermi Paradox is stupid. For a longer discussion, check out the Drake Equation. "

Kit the Odd replied to Portnoy's discussion Republican Negative View on Higher Learning in the group The Great Debate
"So...what your saying is, "If you would just re-interpret things according to my prejudices and assumptions you would see how wrong you are.""

Kit the Odd replied to Ovid's discussion Why economics is nonsense on par with "gender studies" in the group The Great Debate
"Not tightly controlled or predictable - like quantum mechanics? Just because something isn't predictable at the smallest (quantum) level, doesn't mean that it isn't predictable at the large, macro level.  I can't…"

Kit the Odd replied to Portnoy's discussion Republican Negative View on Higher Learning in the group The Great Debate
"Why do you have a problem with that concept?  I see it as the same basic concept as "disagree without being disagreeable".  Do you actually have a problem with the concept, or just with how poorly most people implement it?"

Kit the Odd replied to Portnoy's discussion Republican Negative View on Higher Learning in the group The Great Debate
"That's a good point.  I was actually impressed with the quality of that article.  Which is somewhat depressing, because competence should be expected not impressive."

Kit the Odd replied to Portnoy's discussion Republican Negative View on Higher Learning in the group The Great Debate
"If only there were a group that was dedicated to providing good, rational, well-explained information to the masses.  Sure, it might take people several minutes per topic to absorb the background and context of an event - but it would be worth…"

Kit the Odd replied to Portnoy's discussion Republican Negative View on Higher Learning in the group The Great Debate
"Right, it is just those radical Republicans that have concerns like this: Oh, wait, its not."

Kit the Odd replied to Portnoy's discussion Republican Negative View on Higher Learning in the group The Great Debate
"All the stories I hear on the media are about riots, safe spaces, violent protests of disliked speakers, etc.  I know that there are non-crazy colleges.  But it is like the statistics on childhood dangers: kids are safer now than 30 years…"

"Yes.  Saw a ring of fire around a black disk.  Supposedly it was the corona, but it was plenty bright. Had so much fun looking thru my 2 pinhole cameras, seeing it on my tablet, and an occasional look thru eclipse glasses."

Do you speak German fluently?

A lady came to my church's weekly food pantry (which used clothing as well) who told the ladies there that she couldn't understand them because she only speaks German (which may or may not be true).  I told the ladies that I would have a simple set of rules translated into German, and with my one year of German in high school, I could show and read to her these rules next week.I translated using Google from English into German.  Are any of you guys able to check my Google translation for…See More
