Well that is good to know.  It's a horrible disease.

What's also good is that the ALSA is a pretty transparent charity that always gets high ratings on how it uses its funds. It's not shady like Komen. The amount of money they've already brought in is going to ensure that a lot more people get the care they need, and that breakthroughs are going to be made. At first I thought this was fucking dumb, but the numbers are speaking for themselves.

I think it's adorable.  We contrive such fragile systems of thinking and then huff and puff about it. :lulz:

They're not really constructed, so much as they evolve over time. I'm fairly certain there have never been any Jewish carpenters who were able to stop storms, walk on water, and rise from the dead. But I'm also fairly certain at least one Jewish carpenter just kinda said, "Fuck this hammering. I'm gonna preach!" one day. Where that other stuff came in, I don't know. Maybe they did some good drugs. But Christianity didn't come out of thin air, and it certainly wasn't contrived like Scientology or Discordia.

Council of Nicea comes damn close, though.

Point, but that was more of a limiting event than creation of belief, in order to get some sort of consistency. It's a different kind of contriving than what I meant.

The Council of Nicaea's purpose was the codification of the faith to avoid disputes between what were viewed as heretical sects. It was ordered by Constantine because he was sick of the unrest between the different active churches: Apostolic, Arianism (NOT ARYANISM), Monophysitism, Copt, etc. Let's just say that it made the "argument" between Sunni and Shi'a Islam look tame. It was bad. In the end, Apostolic Christianity won out, thus creating the Orthodox church, and the others were labeled as heretical in nature because of the viewpoints on the Trinity and Transubstantiation, as well as the divinity of Christ.

...I know way too much about this shit.

Husband asks me to get in touch with other chief's wives and selectee wives to "vent" and to find "help."

Honestly, as stressful as this is, it could be worse. It could be A LOT WORSE. As in, he could be deployed worse. So for 6 weeks he goes through hell (although this week he's in Boston working on the Constitution and doing charity work. Yeah, okay. Hard.) and then he gets new pins and uniforms and it's all over. Seriously. I think my black belt test was harder than what he's gone through so far. And I told him. This really has just confirmed that my TKD instructor was an asshole, though.

It doesn't. But it's always lulzy if not horrormirthy to see the wafflers who go on and on about America bringing about the police state or some shit turn around and laud this approach for the greater good.

Yeah, but that joke has been done.

Pretty sure it was in Munich, in the 30s.

I always recall you saying something about "missing the punchline."

Somebody always has to argue me on my page about guns. Either way, this came up. DailyMail though, and I haven't watched all the vids.

I saw Arizona got another Haboob.

Either Tucson does not get them, or God really hates Phoenix.

Graduate orientation is next Monday.

Shit just got real, didn't it?

Day 6 of the stomach flu.

I should not have come to work today.

Day 6? How is your hydration? Seriously?

I'm getting myself stuck every other day, 2 bags per.  I look like a fucking junkie.

Are they giving you Zofran or anything as a anti-emetic? Jesus, usually these things don't last this long.

Why, oh why did I bother posting in TDS(closed)? I gave some information regarding Muslim dress, one poster is legitimately thankful and wants to check out my source material, and not some shitneck wants to start a fight, calling the other person ignorant.

I give up.

Welp. Husband is gone for week to go play 19th Century Navy on the Constitution. I'm off to get a mani-pedi, and then clean my house for the next 5 days.

I just had a needle break on my husband's pants and go up my nose.

I'm done for the night, I think.

We can only hope that exposure to chronic illnesses that would be otherwise curable by really real for real medicine has some sterilization effects, and we can move on to the next stage of evolution.
