Err . . . I kinda don't make sense in the slang I use.  I was raised by a bunch of Old Southern Women, so I can dodge thorns and June Bugs to gather berries and cook homemade cobbler, while talking trash about people and following it with "Bless Her Heart" - that makes the insults not count, of course.Evil Looking

I was a hippie flower child in college, so everything is GROOOOOVY.  But I graduated as the only white female in a minority high school, so I use a lot of pseudo-ebonics terms and shake my head, hips and throw up the hand when I get mad.  I just pick up the lingo wherever I have been in my life.  I was insufferable after coming home one summer from vacation.  It took me 2 months to shed the Jersey accent.

But I called you homie not for geographic reasons but because I feel I find a kindred soul in your intellect and views on many things.  My friends call me Megipedia because there isn't something you talk about that I don't already know and refer to me as "creepy girl with ESP" since I tend to predict people's behaviors before they occur. 

I think we are shaking the foundation of reality here, Ridge.  Can two people who are convinced they know most everything be friends?  Or will we destroy reality from the friction of an unstoppable force meeting the immovable object?  Only time will tell . . .

I seriously like your style.

Yeah, watch out for them blackberry thorns now. June Bugs I've had filtered through my teeth on the motorcycle. They're full of yeller pus or custard or something like that but they don't taste very good at all.

Now I don't think both of us knowin everything would commence us to fussin but that hippie dippie flower child stuff... well... let's talk about somethin else.

Now maybe when y'all get good on them feadogs you can play at the Carter Family Fold sometime and we'll come see ya. Hope ya can clog to that or them hillbillies'll git vahlint.

Nice meetin ya Megan, hope to hear more from ya in the forums and best of luck to ya!

    Very cool Tenaj.  My psych mentor would be proud.  You are making him functionally define "fact" - that what he is asking for, as well as recognizing the role of reality as we see it.  I love sitting at my kitchen table with lemon drop martinis and discussing what is truth, what is fact, etc.

    Ask someone sometime what is a chair.  They will usually describe the form, the appearance, etc.  But everyone leaves out the functional definition of what a chair really is.  Does it have to have four legs?  Does it change to a stool if you break the back off it?  Does it lose its form of being a chair if a leg is broken off or if you cease to use it?

    Just being weird, sorry.

    OK, I'm busted.  But how we view and define a fact is our reality.  And we all have our own reality going on.

      Edited because I forgot to quote that I was replying to joker17s question:

      How is the universe only a few thousand years old, when there are galaxies billions of light years away?

      ANSWER IT !

       

       

      Because she has an excellent aestheticician and uses a great night cream under the eyes.  Doesn't look a day over 3030 if you ask me.  But a real gentleman never discusses a lady's true age.Banana

       

      Ba dum bum.

      I like the fact that even though you have seriously differing opinions, you aren't afraid to discuss them openly, and THINK.  Geez, if you knew how many people are walking around in a brainwashed FOG, you would be impressed.  And I don't just mean brainwashed by religious indoctrination.  Brainwashing by half witted parents is one major factor but I also mean brainwashed by increasingly inane TV and movie plotlines, the collective IQ of our society seeming to drop (every time someone gains a follower on Twitter, at least one other person loses 2 IQ points, kinda like It's a Wonderful Life) and the very existence of certain reality TV shows that I won't specify in case someone is a fan.  Let them have their love of stupid.

      It is just me, or I am developing a strange respect and affection for Ridge?  I don't even know him, but his bitingly humorous and no-filter straight to the point posts have started to grow on me.  Or maybe it's moss, I should probably move around more often.

      Either way, I hope eventually you all chillax about this to some degree.  Healthy debate is what keeps the intellectual capacity of a society from stagnating.  And I get the feeling that people don't like getting pwned by Ridge, since he doesn't really use gentleness and kid gloves about it and loads it with "his" flavor of humor.  But perhaps that's his way of making you think and challenging your belief structure.  That's what I keep telling myself when I sound like him in real life and it ticks people off.  My best friend describes dealing with me kinda that same way, so I'll put an Appalachian spin on it.  "If you're scared of the Runner, stay away from the Ridge."  One can always choose not to engage.  I don't like getting into (snip)ping contests.  I have a small bladder and everyone always ends up smelling bad after its done.

      Just for the record, I'm not an uneducated bumpkin (2 separate bachelors, one in psychology, and a medical doctorate) but I'm also a staunch Christian.  I guess I could be described as Catholic fusion.  1/3 less guilt plus the secret ingredient of being a scientist without it conflicting with my beliefs.  This is not the "I love Rdgnr and he is always right" fan club.  I'm not a coat-tail rider or groupie.  I have a lot of respect for what MANY people have said on this forum.  I don't always agree, and I think some of them are downright limited, but at least you're putting it out there.

      Go Team LP . . . I think . . .

      Ridge is a loser and a dumbass, and he has some dumbass followers who adore his wit, but unfortunately for him, he should stick to his comedy, cause he stinks when it comes to answering simple questions, just like Visine. When he's stuck in the corner, he switches gears by using racist remarks as a defense. This clearly shows he has nothing valubale to contribute, so putting someone down in that fashion is his only PATHETIC way.

      Pathetic hillbilly thinks he has a monopoly on truth. And Vision believes he's got a phone line to God. I'm surrounded by crazy delusional fanatics who can't even get their fanaticism correct. Crazy

        Maybe you should consult your little green men then.

        That's rational.

          What?Joker17, I have a question for you.  Don't go to a dictionary, the internet to get a definition.  I want you to answer this question in your own words and what you think the answer is.  What is a fact? This is not a trick question. 

          What we believe, who we are, how we put together things in our mind, etc. our "always, always being" has a lot to do with our definition of a fact.

          Just curious of how you define what a fact is. 

          xTo me, a fact is something that can be verified by either a scientific approach that is proven, or by circumstantial eveidence. Not all things can fit so neatly into this because even scientific tests have flaws. But most importantly, I find that a mixture of common sense and factual evidence makes the best tool for reaching a decision, but that's just my opinion.

          It's a FACT, that light travels 186,000 per second, and it's IMPOSSIBLE based on that FACT, that the universe can only be a few thousand years old. The reason folks don't want to tackle this is because they have NO answer. Jarasan attempted a while back by mentioning Tachyons that are claimed to travel faster than the speed of light, but unfortunately he didn't do is homework because Tachyons are nothing but hypothetical. Even if they were real, they would present a whole host of other contradictions.

          That is why I'm an Agnostic. I don't know for sure whether there is a God or not, and I don't claim I have insider serects to this, no one does, If they do, then they are delusional. So since there is no clear evidence of whether he exists, and even If he did, which of the THOUSANDS of Gods would you choose, so I choose to be spiritual.

          But here's what I was talking about earlier when I said fact and common sense play a vital role. Over the years I came to the conclusion that since we are made of energy, and and enery cannot be destroyed, only changes, that there may POSSIBLY be a way for some form of ourselves to continue after this life has ended. And that's where my spirituality comes in. I'm open to the possibilities out there, but I will NEVER EVER subscribe to organized religion. There are literally WAY TOO many variables in life for one religion to be correct and all the other thousands to be wrong, unless that one religion can PROVE to be the right one. Til this day, none of them can prove anything except quotes fom their own texts.

          If there is a God out there, and he's a loving God who knows more than we will ever be able to imagine, I'm willing to bet my soul that he has a much better approach with dealing with humans who actually take the time to search for truth, and not blindly accept the most convenient path and pick one of the top five popular religions, claiming they are right and everyone else is wrong.

          There's a word for that kind of behavior. It's called DELUSIONAL.

            What on Earth do you want me to call them if calling them your "little green men" is "racist"?

            You're getting so protective of them I think you're starting to enjoy the "probing".

              "visine"  .....i missed this earlier,  but yes,  i do have clear "vision",  i do work hard at making sure i give the best opportunity for others to have "clear vision",  and occasionally just like the directions state on the front of the bottle "it get's the red out",  we all know that's true as well,  when i have to,  when guys like you come across my radar.

              "And Vision believes he's got a phone line to God"

               not a "phone line" because that's old school.   i have the latest technology (4gs),  and no,  i am not the only one.

              there are millions of "us" that do.

              you sell the notion that no one can,  and we all know even with an ambivilent attitude about it is if there is a God,  alot of people would.

              you have this deep seeded hatred for God,  and your first move always demonstrates that,  so why on earth would you think otherwise,  that nobody "should"?

               

              anyway,  we all have our quirks, and in the heat of it all we do and say stupid things.

              all of us

              angst driven stupidity is one thing,  but willful no conscience lying.....that's a deal breaker in the ethics whose who game of life.

              ridge spoke the truth.  when you consistently lie and several subject matters,  your deal is over as far as being a 'trustable" huamn being in the ethics game of life.

              defending different opinions is one thing,  willfull lying means your done

              maybe you can save face and explain to the board how you can "demand" i answer one question (when i already have),  but yet you lied about sending that email,  no "photo" of that $1000 check,  refused to confirm my story with todd,  refused to set up arrangements to view my journal, lied about perfectiming and lied incessantly  about answering your question?

              this is why i so ardously defend against you,  to prove all you want to do is "wrassle".

              your not here to "debate".   

              you never have been here for that since 2005,  since your other "screename" where you got booted to the curb

                          "i am .........."meant to"       

              P.S.,  that RJoH  is a stand up guy.  thanks,  vision

                       until further notice,  it's  france everyday

                You can't answer a simple question without writing the same old blah blah blah over and over again.

                I think my mission in this thread is done. Everyone who's read this can easily see that both you and Ridge can't answer a simple question, musch less a hundred other contradictions I could easily post.

                Both of you wouldn't last 3 seconds in a debate forum concerning all of this. I've been to a few forums on the net. Forget about me, they'd eat you guys for lunch.

                Like i said, it's a waste of time talking to a couple simpletons.

                I think I'll head over to some of those forums where there are intelligent debates going on.

                This debate here isn't even a debate, it's a circus with a couple of clowns.

                You guys are no brainers to me. It's not fun when there's no challenge. It's like shooting fish in a barrel.

                  Maybe that's where you belong if you want to debate religion.

                  The rest of us are here to discuss and trade notes and learn about all things lottery.

                  The debate only started because you hate Christians and refuse to allow them to mention their faith in simple conversation. You take it as a personal affront if a Christian mentions he or she prayed for this or that. Get over yourself, every post that mentions God isn't an attack on you that you have to defend against. They aren't even directed at you but you think they are for some reason. I think it's called paranoia.

                  You say you have a right to disagree and voice your opinion about anything anybody says in a post - that's your rationale for attacking Christians. Well guess what? We have the same right to disagree and voice our opinions about what you say too.

                  But you go into a psychotic meltdown everytime we do.

                  Oh well.

                   

                  Good luck at the "debates" where everybody is on the same side. It's a lot friendlier that way, isn't it?

                    Maybe that's where you belong if you want to debate religion.

                    The rest of us are here to discuss and trade notes and learn about all things lottery.

                    The debate only started because you hate Christians and refuse to allow them to mention their faith in simple conversation. You take it as a personal affront if a Christian mentions he or she prayed for this or that. Get over yourself, every post that mentions God isn't an attack on you that you have to defend against. They aren't even directed at you but you think they are for some reason. I think it's called paranoia.

                    You say you have a right to disagree and voice your opinion about anything anybody says in a post - that's your rationale for attacking Christians. Well guess what? We have the same right to disagree and voice our opinions about what you say too.

                    But you go into a psychotic meltdown everytime we do.

                    Oh well.

                     

                    Good luck at the "debates" where everybody is on the same side. It's a lot friendlier that way, isn't it?

                    No, that's my opinion. And YOU don't have the right to tell me what I can write. YOU are NOT the owner of this site, but you act as a moderator.

                      OK, you can give your opinions on what everybody writes but nobody else can give opinions on what you write.

                      Is that what you're saying?

                        When did I ever say people can't write what they want? All I ever wanted was my right to express my opinion without the Ridge police accusing me of attacking Christians.

                        I will try to go back and dig up the original thread where I specifically asked another poster within the thread If he/she thought it was intervention or whatever he/she said, not the poster of the thread who was thanking God for her 4 grand or so win. I even congratulated her for her win.  All I did was ask another poster a question, and lo and behold you came out of the woodwork. You started your whole BS about how Christians are being attacked by people like me, when all I did was ask a question.

                        That's when this whole new version of the policing by you began.

                        When you disagree with something on a thread, you don't see me flying off the handle. I respect your opinion, and I ask you do the same.

                        It only gets ugly when you accuse me of things based on your interpretation of an attack. Things get out of control, and before you know it, name calling begins, and the whole thing becomes one big mess.

                        I thought we had an agreement, but it seems that through the passage of time, the agreement has fallen apart.

                        Just like every other subject on LP is subject do scrutiny, why should religous belifs have a free pass? If it's a personal thing, then keep it to yourself, but If it's displayed in a public forum, just like every other subject, then it's fair game. I always try to be respectful, but when I'm called names or mentioned as a foreigner who beats women, then I get pissed.

                        You write what you want, and I'll write what I want, and let Todd decide what's appropriate and what's not.

                          @ Ridge, Here's the original thread where all this started. The link shows where I congratulated Elizabeth on her win. Todd cleaned up the thread, so I can't show where I asked the question because he deleted it. But trust me, all I did was ask another poster a question. Whether it was divine intervention or not.

                            You can't answer a simple question without writing the same old blah blah blah over and over again.

                            I think my mission in this thread is done. Everyone who's read this can easily see that both you and Ridge can't answer a simple question, musch less a hundred other contradictions I could easily post.

                            Both of you wouldn't last 3 seconds in a debate forum concerning all of this. I've been to a few forums on the net. Forget about me, they'd eat you guys for lunch.

                            Like i said, it's a waste of time talking to a couple simpletons.

                            I think I'll head over to some of those forums where there are intelligent debates going on.

                            This debate here isn't even a debate, it's a circus with a couple of clowns.

                            You guys are no brainers to me. It's not fun when there's no challenge. It's like shooting fish in a barrel.

                            truth is,   i told the board i already answered the question once before,  and showcased where i did,  proving omce again your just a game player.

                            thanks to my "skills",  you are right,  people can see now what your real motivations are.

                            you and i have "history".  pretty much everyone knows that.   most people can't pick people over agenda,  and so don't worry,  despite you lying incessantly,  you will still have your fans.

                            trouble is,  now i made it harder to pick your side,  when i made the notation you purposefully lied about calling perfectiming what you did....then NEVER owned it or apologized.

                            it's one thing if you lose your mind over me,  everyone expects you to given how good i am at bringing out the "real you",  so no one expects you not to lie when you are dealing with me.

                            on the integrity qualification scale of life,  when you purposefully called perfectiming that name,  and you had zero history with her,  that told ALL that needs to be told about your total motivations in here.

                            do it to me =  semi understandable

                            do it to someone like her (lying about it) =  your done

                            you want a barometer?  good,  i am good at providing one.

                            you claim that you are in here for the right reasons, and that's garbage

                            know how i can tell?   because i come after you when you pull your angst joker routine,  thinking your going to intimidate Christians.

                            notice how i didn't say a word to jimmy about his "atheist video"?    that's because jimmy has the right to respectfully post an opposing opionion,  something you don't do.

                            trust me,  i have MORE than enough in the tank to dispel from an historical basis the fallacy of jimmy's post.  could have pulled a joker angst move and bombed LP with pages of defense against jimmy's post.

                            i didn't

                            that's the difference,  your just a trolling trouble maker full of angst.

                            your uncontrolled lying totally unhinged your "position"

                            anybody that now picks the side of someone who willfully lies with conscience deserves to be on that sphere of life

                            you can lie to the board all you want "i didn't".

                            truth is,  it's archived that every time i needed to.....i did

                            your the only one that totally wussed.

                            "hard evidence", huh ?

                                        "i am .........."meant to"       

                            P.S.,  that RJoH  is a stand up guy.  thanks,  vision

                                     until further notice,  it's  france everyday

                              Why should you get a free pass?

                              It's obvious you just don't understand our culture.

                              Where you come from it's a police state where everything you say is under scrutiny and you are told what you can and can't say and punished if you say things that are not allowed by the religious police. You are told what God to believe in and can have your head chopped off for praying to another God. You apparently think that's a good system and want to institute it here to make this place more like your home country and thereby more comfortable for you.

                               

                              Listen closely now:

                               

                              We Don't Do That Here!

                              We Don't Care How You Do It In Iran!

                              We Don't Do That Here!

                              We Have Religious Freedom Here!

                               

                              I don't know how to make it any clearer than that. I'm sorry your mind got so twisted that you believe that stuff you were raised with is the way it's supposed to be, but it's not. Our ancestors came here to escape from people like you who insist on telling others what to believe.

                              And I'll tell you what else freedom says. It says I can critique your words the same as you critique the words of every Christian who mentions God.

                              How in the world can you think it's your right to criticize people but nobody can criticize you?

                              I don't think it's just a culture thing either, I honestly think you're coming unhinged.

                               

                              So go ahead with your hate crusade against American Christians but just stop whining when you get a little of your own medicine.

                              You ain't over there now son. It's a whole new game here. And there's something you'll have to get used to.

                              We don't take it layin' down.

                              We fight back.
