Quote
So live your life that the fear of death can never enter your heart.
Trouble no one about their religion;
respect others in their view, and demand that they respect yours.
Love your life, perfect your life, beautify all things in your life.

Seek to make your life long and its purpose in the service of your people.
Prepare a noble death song for the day when you go over the great divide.
Always give a word or a sign of salute when meeting or passing a friend,
even a stranger, when in a lonely place.
Show respect to all people and grovel to none.

When you arise in the morning give thanks for the food and for the joy of living.
If you see no reason for giving thanks, the fault lies only in yourself.

Abuse no one and no thing, for abuse turns the wise ones to fools
and robs the spirit of its vision.

When it comes your time to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled
with the fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep
and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way.
Sing your death song and die like a hero going home. --- chief Tecumseh

"Understandably? Why understandably? I can think of plenty of sub-cultures in similar situations that nonetheless welcome noobies so long as the latter demonstrate a certain respect in regards to the sub-culture itself."

David F. replied to Brad's discussion I've lost a lot of weight! How should I expect my life to change?
"I have always been on the skinny side.  I just end up with an extra layer on.  It may just be a simple fact that you need a few extra layers. As to friends drifting away.  I hit that when my son was born.  All my friends did not…"

"+1 There is also, understandably, a culture of exclusion in most fandom-type groups, against great numbers of incoming "fans." Nobody wants their hobby invaded by poseurs and wannabes. This is exacerbated when those wannabes not only think…"

"I admit I don't know anything about that. But the movie, on its own, was simply terrible. Not terrible because it was cramming feminism down anyone's throat, though, because IMO that never happened at any point in the movie. It was just…"

Jack Bauer replied to Heath Edward O'Donnell's discussion Gaming and Proper Social Actions
"With GB, the politics was in the choice of director and the casting, and in the extra-curricular statements and press. Not in the script. Mostly. It certainly wasn't an "assumption", though. It was said outright. JB"

""* Politics is a story-killer.  Stories prosper when they're about characters, not when those characters are there to serve an ideology, whatever the ideology is.  I suspect the blowback on the new Ghostbusters! was not just…"
