I won't have the pics til Tuesday.  when they are available, I will be writing that shit up.

It was kind of the coolest thing ever.

Whatever this is about I can't wait to discover what could possibly top all other of the cool things you've seen.

You'll see.  It's the most amazing thing ever.

LuciferX you're right in a distinct sense. A lot of mystics claim that the soul is without inherent gender. It's most common in reincarnation mythology, which I suspect most of the early church held as doctrine until the meddling of Theodora under Emperor Justinian.. I think. Would have to go double check. See if karmic laws still applied after one's "salvation" then a bunch of imperial debauchery starts to make one seem... insincere spiritually. Look up "monophysite heresy" for more.
Right-on.  I find this very interesting.  Without leveraging the political aspect, perhaps we might invoke Tertullian to reconcile the whole mono-dyo disjunction with a dose of trinitarian doctrine, which would tend toward resolving these differences in a synthesis that perhaps even radically changes the very nature of "before and after", as it also may have done to above and below.

Don't know anything about Tertullian. Also... I'm sketchy about trinities. I just got out of a long term relationship with one and I'm leery about diving back in so soon. I'm still a little sore about it.

Seems like another story.  The way I'd break it down to them is that there is the corporeal, granted identity by the soul, and predestined by the spirit.  The interrelation of these is both continous and distinct.  They can choose to be offended all they want.  :lulz:

So, Inland Revenue finally returned the money they over-taxed me for a couple of years back, and I'm looking to spend some of my newly re-acquired wealth on a laptop.

I'm thinking a Dell Inspiron 15.  I mostly want something for travel, word processing and internet browing, but I thought I'd solicit feedback here as well.

With the work email system down yet again, I am writing a proposal that we build a semaphore line between the two college accommodations and the main school office.

Not because I want one implemented, as fun as it would be. But because I cannot abuse the maintenance department and trolling them with this proposal is the next best thing.

I hope they take it like SO SRS BRO! Either rage flouncing or complaining to the wrong folks would be good, actually wasting resources to "look into" something that should be dropped out of hand would be godly!

What's your ideal cost? Also, what is the most you would pay?
Listen carefully. I don't have much time, and I only have 462 characters left. I'm a scientist from Area 52 (Area 51 was used to draw attention from Area 52, where the aliens were ACTUALLY stored) who was working on neural interfacing with networked devices. In an experiment gone wrong, I accidentally uploaded my mind to the internet. In the 2 seconds I had before my mind scrambled itself with the world's network traffic, I was able to store this snippet in this random internet signature. If you're reading this, let the world know tha

I'm looking at around 500-700 for spending.  Not sure what that is in Trumpbux exactly.

Basically like half my job right now is trolling maintenance.  I like the guy who does most of the actual fixing of stuff, but the guy at the top...he's a typical Engineer Dick ("I know everything because I'm an engineer").  In addition to that, he's a typical army dick ("I know everything because I was in the army").  So he's like two condescending twats in one package.

And since I rarely ever actually have to see him, all my nonsense normally has to be dealt with my boss.  So really it's win-win as far as I'm concerned.

Woot finally tamed the windows 10 beast.

No more random windows defender, no cortana spying on me, and no more one note always running.

You uninstalled Windows 10 as well?
