Or Kill Me / Re: Swingers cucks and cheaters oh my.

Shit! I accidentally deleted my last post while trying to modify it!

But yes. Without a rigid definition of "emotional maturity" and scientific testing we're both just blowing a bunch of hot air. Come to think of it, we'd also need a rigorous definition of "bad". I think there's definitely some minimum cutoff for required emotional maturity below which things do indeed get bad, but I'd wager the cutoff is lower than where you think it is, instead being in the range of violent posessiveness and actually disordered personalities.

But until I can find anything solid for or against, I will concede the argument.

Maturity is a spectrum. You're not going to get a clearly scientifically defined definition. It's also an ongoing thing, and large disparities in age or maturity aren't conducive to healthy romantic relationships.

You want to renew your subscription to jstor to confirm that having sex with someone lacking emotional maturity is a bad idea....

Anything and everything is possible in Mexico.

Mexico: a more optimistic Tucson.

The 50% of marriages end in divorce statistic conveniently leaves out the fact that some people get divorced multiple times. Most first marriages do not end in divorce. Most fourth marriages do.

I've been brewing one for Lucifer vs. Great Cthulhu for months now, will start writing it when I can and see how it expresses. Fuckin' awesome!

I look forward to it

My transfer to UMass is complete, and my transfer credits have been updated to include Cell Bio and Physics 1.

I have to fulfill a diversity requirement, which I am doing by taking World Music. Cool with it, but it definitely means I have to finish in 4 semesters rather than 3. My other classes are Population Biology and Chemistry 1. I am waitlisted for Calculus and if I can't get it, I'm probably going to have to CLEP just to get the damn thing out of the way, and then take another whatever class to make sure I'm firmly within financial aid's requirements (I'll have to look into that though)

There's another tricky bit.

I have to meet an intermediate writing assessment by either taking a test or submitting a portfolio, sometime by the end of Fall semester, due to the amount of credits I have (otherwise they put all future classes on hold). There's something funky about that because there are specific dates involved with either option.

I've mostly been hanging out in Atheists vs Christians and to a lesser extent Atheists vs Theists Death Battle, and recently playfully describing myself as a Gozer worshipper (though it is generally known by people who have known me there for a while that I am a Discordian). Death Battle had a thread over the weekend urging people to do a rap battle sort of thing, so I came up with these two, which I am now saving here for posterity and for your enjoyment and critique.

 Some of you may have confessions of faith
Or put stake in thinking it's a waste to worship a wraith
Some of you might be concerned about karma
Or fulfilling your dharma
Chanting hare Krishna or following Siddhartha
some of you might get a boost
out of Zarathustra
But if so we're not used to
hearing from you sir
Maybe it's true
That you are the few
That will make it through
A one forty four thousand JW
Maybe you and your bros and
Your sisters are chosen
The children of Goshen
And your last name is Rosen
Maybe it is fairly likely
You follow the JC
Catholic, orthodox, or heresy
Spending your Sunday hearing homilies
Or maybe the word to mom
Happens to be Islam
Getting your God on
Reading the Qur'an
maybe your gods are several
Maybe your boy's the devil
Maybe your gods are nil
Maybe none fits the bill
I don't care about all of your teachers
Because none of your preachers
Foresaw the main feature
Total destruction of all the sub-creatures
When Zuul and Vinz Clortho join as one
Your civilization is done
Gozer make you go numb
Volguus Zildrohar, the Traveler has come

Hail Eris, All hail Discord
Ia can see the fnords if you get on board
the law of Eristic escalation Is just what the Doktor disordered
The more that the forces of order insist
The forces of disorder equally resist
Fighting the curse of Greyface
Through humor's embrace just have a taste
Of a hot dog, hold the bun
On a Friday night it's Erisian kinda fun
Who's your favorite Nephew if not me
Representing the Black Iron Prison contingency
When you're leaving your rants word salad ain't valid
It ain't deep, son, don't make no ballad
Your idea of order ain't no perception
Your idea of disorder misconception
Your view of chaos through the lens of self deception
Your reality grid is messing up the reception
Trying to cut the signal through the noise
Salvation through absurd, and playful skeptical joy
Hail Eris, All hail Discord
Ia can the see the fnords if you get on board

...but in different universes, and the only constant is that Paris just ignored Aphrodite, Athena, and Hera and gave the Golden Apple back to you.

What do you do next? You tricky prank was just ruined, but it also just made your day.
Lure Paris out of sight and force him to marry you.
Smash the apple into his junk until he dies, the fucker shouldn't have ruined your prank.
Send pictures of your honeymoon with Paris every day for weeks.
Don't bother hiding the signs of a slowly deteriorating corpse in the pictures.
The next time the goddesses have a party roll the Golden apple covered in Paris' dried blood and shit into the middle of the new party.

5 years, 3 months. I signed up about a month after this thread was started.

Took out my first book from a library in years yesterday. Carl Sagan's Demon-Haunted World. I also ordered Why Evolution Is True, which I'll be taking out today.

So. So my oldest daughter and I had a fight.

Her: "Joss Whedon is such a baby, he deleted his Twitter"
Me: "Don't believe everything you read on Tumblr, it's full of bullies who shit-talk other people to make them feel better about themselves"
Her: furiously shit-talking me on Tumblr
Me: "Case in point, that right there"
Her: "What?"
Me: "Don't you think it's a little hypocritical, that you expect me to house you, feed you, clothe you, and provide you with internet so you can shit-talk me on Tumblr?"
Her: "I don't know what you mean"
Me: "I mean, I know you talk shit about me on Tumblr, but I don't go looking for it because I don't want to know. But right in front of me? Really? I can see that."
Her: furiously shit-talking me even more in a post I can see because I'm FOUR FEET AWAY
Me: "You know what? Get out. Get out of my house. Go spend the night at your dad's house. It's like it's never occurred to you that the things you say can hurt people. Or like you don't care. I'm going to the store, please be gone when I get back.
Her: Gone
Me: <heart is breaking>

Mostly trying not to not let Little Orange see me crying. I feel like a complete shit mom.

That sucks, Nigel. Sorry to hear it.

Oh. Charlestown is like that. Forgot about that bit.

Dear Twid:

Do a pub crawl in Charlestown.

Love (?),

I wouldn't mind that. I should probably get one in with George before he goes to Amherst.
