Like, even someone I've known since I was 13 and who has lived with me on two different occasions did a double take and said, "Who the hell is Kevin? I don't know any Kevins. Oh, right. That Kevin." Note, this person called me Kevin to my face on Saturday, but online....

Heh. Either someone reported me on Facebook or Facebook is cracking down on weird names.

I'm guessing someone reported you, because what's a weird name? Really?

Well, Bearman had to switch today, and someone else mentioned that their neighbor switched today as well. I dunno, does Caoimhin sound like a real name to you?

Depends on whether Facebook is screening real names for "American-ness".

And that's why I figured either/or. I'm annoyed either way. I've used my Irish language name for so long that it's legitimately become a part of my sense of self. And not even out of a sense of "this is Irish me" but that's what I've gone by. Seeing my name in English feels weird in that context.

It's like, "uh, guys, you realize you went past England, right?"

Yeah, but the UK's military isn't so hot nowadays.  America's complaining we suck, and we have to ask the French to borrow their air carrier every time we want to fight outside of Europe, because we scrapped our own in a fit of pique.

Damn, really?

That's gotta hurt though. The UK asking the French to help navy up.

So I wasted time on Yahoo News explaining why, no in a pinch, the Irish Defence Forces would not (indeed, could not) "back up" NATO in any hypothetical skirmishes or full out war with Russia, despite the fact that Russian bombers screwed up civilian air traffic in Dublin.

How have you all been?

I'm doing pretty good. For real there's been Russian bombers flying close enough to Dublin to cause diversions?

Yep. Also, today I learned that Russia is flying very obvious bombers. Obvious to Irish technology.

My reaction is "why? It's fucking Ireland. The British Empire let us off easy because they were war weary from WWI"

Seriously though. Ireland's Air Corps has 24 planes, and the Irish Navy has 7 ships. We rely on the RAF for air defense. Our primary military mission is to secure Ireland against nonexistent threats, support the police, police fisheries in accordance with European Union agreements, and to support UN peacekeeping missions. UN activity accounts for 100% deployment.

The snarky side of me said, "at least we won't have to see any more posts about the color of that damn dress."

You weren't the only one.

The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few, or of the one.

Somebody make sure Twid is okay.

I'm fine, lol, am I that notorious of a trekkie?

 :wink:

Lol. It helps too that I was half expecting it once he went into the hospital. When I heard that, I was like, he's pretty old. If it's not going to be now, it can't be long off.

Or that Isis was a virgin, when she clearly was a necrophiliac.

FACT about most people in skeptic groups; they don't want to have skeptical conversations that question ideas, they just want to make themselves feel superior by shit posting about people they think are stupider than they are.

I get a sense of that, at least with those who seem to want to disprove Christianity, and it's embarrassing when they say shit like Dionysus was called King of Kings when Zeus was still knocking about, or that Horus performed miracles, just like Jesus did (seriously, show me a god that doesn't have weird superpowers). Making shit up weakens your position and credibility. Especially if the source of your memes is a YouTube Truther documentary.

I went to the post office and the store (I now have almost everything I need for my trip, except for a duffel bag and a stupid hat) and when I came home, grades were posted. It bumps me up from a borderline A to a solid A, so that tells me that my current level of studying is perfect.

Now I will change the cat boxes, make dinner, and drink a beer while logging grades while dinner cooks.

I AM DOING IT YOU GUYS.
