Protecting a pocket watch

I have a very nice antique pocket watch that I'm fond of (it was an anniversary gift, so it has sentimental value in addition to being a cool watch).  It is open-faced, that is, it lacks the hinged…Continue

"Sure, why don't you go ponder it.  Meanwhile, I'll consider the psychological tics of those who imply that someone has taken a position that they manifestly have not."

"Probably.  The lack of knowledge and perspective is impressive, in a sad sort of way.  I suspect it has a lot to do with people who are not particularly accomplished, intelligent or informed themselves getting self-congratulatory ego…"

Hey Nathanael, I applaud you for standing up for what's right (especially in regard to your posts in the thread about how one would react if their child came out as gay).  Keep the faith!

Sorry, didn't mean to offend with the great divide post.  It's just the antagonism between the parties has become rabid, down here in Texas, and, frankly, I am getting sick of it.  I think it's mostly media driven, but I wanted to hear what others thought, and, maybe, begin some rapprochement.  I've removed the discussion.
