Still working on this. It's going to take a bit longer than a week.

No rush, Joe. I'm still trying to ease myself back into PD. I don't even know why I have to, I've been here for... Well, a long time. Suffice to say I consider Roger a personal friend, who I've spent one on one time with in person.

Also, Roger, sorry for making Boston boring, but glad I could work out the inscription on the monument. And thank you for the advice, I'm not done with either mathematics or physics yet.

Not my idea, just ran with it. Tracy O'Phyte. Tracheophyte. Vascular plants.

I was expecting this. I wonder what would have happened for the primary off it were true

And let's face it, in that sort of situation, it's probably as emotionally unhealthy for the forty year old as it is for the nineteen year old.

It certainly sounds like they are

Probably because you can't wrap your head around the idea that people who have attained their majority can still have a maturity disparity with another consenting person who has also attained majority. A forty year old can legally fuck a nineteen year old but it's generally considered skeezy.

Also, y'all are trying to entrap me with strawman arguments. If you'll look back to the beginning of the thread, you'll see that I was talking about emotionally immature like an 18 year old, NOT emotionally immature like a 12 year old or a 5 year old like you people are trying to make it out to be. There's a difference to those who can see it and remember it; if you aren't so old that you just subconsciously group anyone young enough to still have their original knees into the category of "small children"


But it's a relevant ninja. It is a spectrum, and people are making me out to be pointing at a different range than I am.

No one is making the strawman that you think they are.

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....

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
