  • 57 Things I Need You to Stop Doing to the Women You Work With

    I think we, as males, have to get over our shame and silence and talk about the women who have put us in uncomfortable situations or out right harassed us.

    I’ll start...

    I took an unattractive friend to her senior prom. She had no date and I felt sorry for her. As we were leaving the prom she pushed me up against the car, kissed me, grabbed my crotch, and told me she wanted me to be her first.

    I had an employee strip in the backroom and invite me to have sex.

    While out with a friend, she insisted that we see a drive in porn movie. In the middle of the movie she decided to emulate what was going on on the screen.

    My female boss asked me to work late and when everyone was gone, she flashed me and asked if I would play with her rather substantial breasts.

    All of these were unwanted advances that made me feel very uncomfortable. These were friends or co-workers, not women I was, or ever would be, interested in. Some happened after I was married and the women knew I was married.

    If we swapped the genders of those incidences, the men would be abusers and cads.

  • Police to arrest 10 people in LSU fraternity pledge's death

    When I was in college, back when dinosaurs ruled the earth and the drinking age was still 18, we had a similar instance.

    One of our brothers decided to do a “Bluto”, drink an entire bottle of Jack Daniels in one gulp. We tried to stop him, but to no avail. Everyone thought he was going to puke it up, but he held it down.

    About 1/2 an hour later he went to the bathroom and didn’t come out.

    We found him hours later laying in a puddle of vomit, barely responsive. We rushed him to the hospital where he was comatose for almost a week.

    No one blamed the fraternity. Everyone, including his parents, thought he was an idiot. They actually thanked us for saving his life.

    Times sure have changed. I guess no one is responsible for their own stupid decisions.

    There is a recent documentary called “Unacknowledged” on Netflix. In it they quote the “100 years” as well. Since my relative said this to me 10 years ago, I have to think it is a “thing” to say in the inner circle.

    I have a relative that worked at both Los Alamos and Sandia Labs.

    He knew I was into this kind of stuff, but was appropriately tight lipped about it. He would go on about declassified things like the Atomic Airplane project he once worked on, but not a peep about classified projects.

    We got into a discussion about Tesla’s stuff that was obviously making him uncomfortable. When I persisted he said..

    “You’re into science fiction, right? Think about where you “think” we are, add 100 years, and you’re just getting close.”

    Here is more of the rest of the story, that you may have missed. God told people to give money and gold to Job and have Job pray for them.

    Wow...did you miss the point of those scriptures.

    Job's friends had given him bad advice and false teachings while Job was suffering.

    God, being decidedly upset with them, said that unless they made a burnt offering, and allowed Job to pray for them, He wouldn't accept their prayers.

    THEN all of Jobs friends and relatives (that were still alive) returned to him and brought him gifts. God didn't command them to give gifts to Job, they just did because they felt sorry for all the loss and pain he had gone through.

    This is not the same thing as paying a pastor. Not even close.

  • North Tonawanda law punishes parents to help prevent bullying

    Crusher138 to Morgana

    Administrations don’t want to get involved. They intentionally turn a blind eye.

    I was bullied all through elementary school.

    I was suckered punched while coming down the stairs at 5th grade graduation, in front of all the parents. That was enough. I hauled back and slugged the bully in his braces-filled mouth, shredding my knuckles through his lips.

    While having my hand attended to - and listening to the bully bawl his head off in the next room - the principal came in and said...

    “You took it for five years, couldn’t you take it for five minuets more?”

    Mom was standing there. She suddenly realized that my complaints of bullying were true - something she had not allowed herself to believe. She knew our principal professionally as she was a teacher at a nearby school, and had figured if something had really been going on, she would have been told.

    That was the principal’s last year. He took an early, unexpected retirement. I’m pretty sure mom had something to do with it.

  • Caught On Video: Woman Dragged Off Southwest Flight Over Allergy ["Dog Allergy"]

    FWIW...

    I had a discussion with a man who trains service dogs for a living. I asked about the increasing popularity of “service dogs” for a variety of things. In a nutshell, it is a psychological thing that has been proven effective. A friend of ours had bone cancer that had taken one of his legs. His service dog didn’t really help him walk, but it was a psychological “crutch” that made him more comfortable in public.

    As for the dog allergy...my doctor told me that things that they used to classify as “sensitivities” are now being treated more like “allergies”. Most allergies are a matter of degree. Some peanut allergies trigger when they are eaten, some can be triggered by the smell. For some the reaction is swelled up membranes, for others it is anaphylactic shock. That being said, he claimed that people who used to just cope with their allergies now seem to be demanding that the world accommodate their allergies. Thus, someone that has what used to be called a sensitivity now has an allergy that must be catered to.

    They feel they shouldn’t be subjected to the sniffles just because someone else is having trouble coping with flying.

    Conversely, the person with the dog doesn’t feel like they should be made to feel uncomfortable just because someone else will get the sniffles.

    I have a brother in Christ going through a divorce right now because of an unfaithful wife. He found out about her infidelity months ago and confronted her. She claimed to have regretted the “mistake” and promised to break it off. He later finds out that she had no intention of ending the affair and used the time to rack up debt and empty some joint accounts.

    He is devastated. They have three teenage children who are torn in their feelings towards their parents. As far as I know he did all the right things - made his family a priority in his time, worked out and kept in shape, made a lot of money and attended church and bible study regularly. She was a stay at home mom who didn’t stay at home. She claims she got bored.

    Very sad.

    Just as the iWatch is useless because it doesn’t have enough battery to be useful as a true watch,, requiring constant charging.

    Two things:

    1. There is no iWatch. There is, however, the Apple Watch.

    2. It does not require "constant charging". My series 2 Apple Watch, like a smartphone, can go two or three days without a charge. I have gotten into the habit of attaching the magnetic charger to the back of my phone when I begin to get ready for work. By the time I have brushed my teeth, shaved, showered and gotten dressed, my watch is back to 100%.

    My Apple Watch probably saved my life. A sleep monitoring app showed I was getting no sleep and, after going through a sleep study, it was discovered that I have obstructive and central sleep apnea, to the extent of it being life threatening.

    The other extremely useful feature has been the ability to text and take calls without pulling out my phone. I can just tap my watch and talk. Very handy.

    My Watch also keeps track of my physical activity. Having the report sent to my doctor has verified my assertion that while I am overweight, I am very physically active, which is leading to investigations as to why, on a 1600 calorie a day diet, I do not loose weight.

    I have it on good authority that we have Rods from God. They are not just dropped, but pushed. Testers were surprised at the penetrating power, which may be why they are being considered.

    Supposedly we’ve been sending them up for years. One at a time they aren’t that heavy.

    They are an ideal weapon for taking out a hardened facility.

    My Watch may have saved my life.

    My wife has always said I snore. When I got my Watch I downloaded a sleep tracking program. It showed me that I wasn’t getting any deep sleep and, in fact, showed that I was “awake” for much of the night!

    This got me to finally sign up for a sleep study. It turns out I have both congestive and central sleep apnea, so bad that I was in imminent danger of dying in my sleep. They put me on a CPAP and oxygen.

    Now my Watch shows I get between 40 and 60% deep sleep per night. I feel better and have much more energy.

    This, and the ability to answer my phone while it is in my pocket while driving, are my two favorite features.

    I know it’s tin foil stuff, but “Unacknowleded” now streaming on Netflix has people saying that von Braun made a death bed confession where he said a black group in the government will ratchet up fear...

    First the Russians will be the bad guys.

    Then the terrorists.

    Then third world crazies (like North Korea).

    Finally, they will stage a false flag “alien attack” using stuff we have reverse engineered from crashed extraterrestrial vehicles.

    All of it intended to “unite” us, so we accept a one world government.

    This all according to von Braun. On his deathbed.

    It is likely crap...but a small voice inside me goes “what if it is true?”

    So...don’t believe it if we attacked by aliens in the near future!
