    Mental Wellbeing Thread

    I have been where you are now. There is no easy answer and nothing to make the pain any less. There is no blame and nothing you could have done differently. Just hold your gf and be there for her My wife and I had this happen twice and it is a terrible thing to have to go through. Get some sleep and accept that you did nothing wrong. Take care.

    Dating - I love the way you swipe

    People tend to find someone attractive if they exude that certain something that says 'I am in a relationship. That's why I am not noticing you'. Of course it could be the beard too and you have just become the anti-Pence; someone who should not be seated next to women lest an uncontrollable reaction is sparked.

    US Politics: Paradise Lost

    For me the irritation with Pence is that either he thinks that he is so irresistible to women and he is weak willed and unable to resist, or that women are diabolical and looking for a chance to seduce him into a depraved lifestyle which he is too weak willed to resist. Either way I feel bad for his wife.
  4. Any list that has Stargate SG-1 on it and totally ignores Farscape is seriously wanting. Ben Browder and Claudia Black were sooo much better in Farscape.
  5. I just read this article also and it does solve a conundrum concerning the disappearance of North American megafauna. Some thought the arrival of people from Asia was the cause but the timelines never seemed to match in that the animals disappeared before the people had a chance to really gain a foothold.

    HAL is dead. Douglas Rain, the Canadian actor who was the voice of HAL in 2001: a Space Odyssey died on the weekend. He was 90 years old.

    US Politics: Dead Pimps Need Not Apply

    For perspective how many bombs were sent to Democrats? How many people were shot in a synagogue? How many people were shot last week in a bar in California? How many voters were disenfranchised before the election? Stupid is as stupid writes.

    Wouldn't any attempt to quash an indictment be construed as obstruction of justice? Especially if there is an existing obstruction of justice charge?
  9. I just finished it last week. I absolutely loved it. I have lawyer friend and recommended it to her few months ago and she loved it too. The Canadian legal system being similar to the Australian, I figured she would get more of the legal jokes.

    Trump has already left Bonkers in his dust. Looneyville is his next stop when Li'l Donny is indicted.

    Dutch man sues to change his legal age

    Correction. He does not want to be caught out in a bald faced, easily provable lie. I have to admit he is smarter than Trump in this.

    Terrible isn't it? Hardly anyone gets my jokes either and I try to put one in most posts.
  13. Now the word is that Tony Clement was more free with his sexting than he first admitted to being. I guess enough people came out with stories about him that Scheer gave him the boot from caucus. As to Jim Wilson, resigning because of addiction becomes resigning for accusations of sexual assault. And then Dear Leader Doug says the addiction story was to protect the accuser. With that kind of reasoning, why doesn't he eliminate charging people with crimes? Damn, but Ford is stupid.
  14. And now we have another minister caught up in a sex scandal. Tony Clement.

    US Politics: Four Days and Counting

    If not paying your debts is such a bad thing, explain to me how someone sued for not paying their debts, and then gets sued his own lawyers for not paying his debts again, manages to reach high office. Yes the deadbeat is Trump.
