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?

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.

So, I just found out the source of all that bullshit about Jesus being 100% identical to Horus and Dionysus and Mithras and practically every other deity in every single culture in history. Fucking Zeitgeist the Movie. Jesus fucking Christ (no pun intended) is that really where all this fucking patent nonsense is really coming from in the unskeptical atheist community? It's NWO nutbaggery.

When you get thoroughly debunked by a biblical literalist, you're doing some higher level idiocy.

Mountjoy Jail, Dublin, British Empire

Mrs. Barry looked at the chaplain as she left, puzzled. "Where is Canon Waters?"
The chaplain replied, "He is suddenly ill, ma'am. I will be taking your son's confession."

The chaplain walked in and turned to the guards, "sirs, do you mind?" He pointed to his collar. The guards looked at each other, nodded and walked out of the room.

Kevin started, "Bless me, Father, for I have sinned."

"Do you want the good news first, or the bad?"

"Pardon?"

"Good news first, or bad?"

Kevin thought for a moment. Puzzled, he went along with it. "The bad."

The chaplain spoke:
"Selfishly, I may get in a lot of fucking trouble for this. Supervisors don't like a lot of interfering with the timeline, and Canon Waters is supposed to be here right now. Also, I'm no priest, so I can't absolve you. From my perspective, you're just going to have to deal with whatever guilt you feel until the morning. You know, when it all goes black. I suppose that's a bit of the good news. Happy Halloween."

"Who are you?"

"A time traveler. Sounds mad, I know. I'm not done yet. You won't live to see some amazing shit. You'll never know about the discovery of the basic genetic code for life, or what it's shaped like, how it works, and how future generations will be able to manipulate it. You'll never understand the origin of the universe, or wonder what the hell dark matter is. You'll never see a man stand on the Moon or hear the staticky words, "That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind" first hand. You'll never see Earth from afar. You'll never fly across the ocean. You'll never see incredible advances in medicine. You'll never grow old. You'll never be able to have complete access to all documented human knowledge with a few motions of your fingers. And I have the ability to give you all of those things, but if I do, unpredictable changes will occur, so I can only give you the good news and the bad."

"The good news, then."

"You won't live to see the rest of this century. You won't live to see the civil war that immediately follows your country's independence. You won't see the impending global economic collapse, and the rise of fascism. You won't live to see the single most destructive war in human history. You won't live to see atomic weapons used on civilians. You won't see a nail biting standoff that threatens to annihilate humanity itself that lasts for decades. You won't be lulled into a false sense of security with the collapse of the Soviet Union. You'll never live to see humanity survive all of that shit, and still go on to systematically destroy the environment because it's more profitable in the short term. You'll also miss out on hippies, disco, and hair bands, which can go either way depending on your preference. And you get to avoid all of this, and remembered as a hero to your cause. You even get a ballad."

Kevin was silent for several moments.

"Why are you telling me all of this?"

The chaplain himself was silent for a few moments, considering what his motives were. "If I was going to die in the morning, I'd want someone to come back and tell me what was going to happen afterwards, too, in the hopes that everything would turn out fine."

"Is it going to be alright in the end?"

"How should I know? I've never seen the end."

"Will you pray with me, so?"

The chaplain wasn't a religious man in reality, but played the part for the condemned, and crossed himself.
