Re: “Favorite Catalog

My favorite catalog is because it is the best site for me where I can easily buy an original branded product at a very cheap rate and also for kids school accessories.

Re: “Hitchhiking Tales

First of all, I have been hitchhiking since I was thirteen, and the worst experiences I have had hitchhiking through SLC. There is a particularly nefarious group of individuals working out of the truck stops not too far from downtown. What their business is making the lives of the homeless and travelers miserable, I still do not know, but they are cautious. This is a flying J on 27th; do not stop, do not pass go, do not collect 200$. You could lose your life. These people are serious. Recommend SLC to highly experienced and armed travelers(hitchhikers, I mean)

Re: “The Plot Thickens

"Illuminati: If there is an Illuminati, they are not very illuminated and are nothing to worry about. They do not know the nature of reality, or they would not be trying to control it. They will not be able to change it, no matter what they think. Rich people are too busy being rich people to cause too much mischief. There are unseen rich and powerful people pulling strings, but they are just making themselves more rich and powerful for a short period of time. There are many groups, secret and otherwise, that are successful in spreading lies and misinformation, but almost everything is lies and misinformation in one way or another, so it really does not affect things much. - from The Present, a free book at www. truthcontest. com What do you think about this? Agree or disagree?

Telling people they won't get into the celestial kingdom without donating is pretty strong motivation as laughable as that is.

Re: “Hitchhiking Tales

I will be hitchhiking from UT to San Diego in the next couple weeks to pick up my wife and 3 kids. We are from Eagle Mountain and she has 2 weeks to go see her parents, I have to work. I want to go down and drive them all back. I have been hitch hiking since I was about 14. So I am kind of excited. She wants me to fly down. . . I think the 14 hour plus hitch hiking experience would be a lot more adventurous. Does City Weekley want to sponser me? You know make me a couple signs. . . JP

Re: “Wrong Lesson

jehovah's Witnesses do not believe that the earth is only 3000 years old and never did. According to them (and biblical chronology) the first humans were created about 6000 years ago and the earth way earlier. The earth could be many millions of years old according to Jehovah's Witnesses

Re: “Wrong Lesson

You bring up an interesting point, because Jehovah's Witnesses believe that Adam was created somewhat over 6000 years ago, so that would mean that Adam had to live a double life for 3000 years or so. But there is a scripture that answers the problem here Proverbs 18:13, or we say in Tex. Put brain in gear, then put mouth in action. Hope you have a lovely day.

Re: “Wrong Lesson

Jehovah's Witnesses do NOT believe the Earth is 3,000 years old. The Scriptures, in stating, "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth" (Ge 1:1), leave matters indefinite as to time. This use of the term "beginning" is therefore unassailable, regardless of the age scientists may seek to attach to the earthly globe and to the various planets and other heavenly bodies. The actual time of creation of the material heavens and earth may have been billions of years ago.

His anti-humanist approach to management should be a definative point of his legacy...
He definitley got shit done, but sometimes at a greater cost than what it was worth.

Re: “Goodbye Jim

Jim Rizzi kindly offered me my first-ever shot of Patrón, served in a paper cup. Until that meeting in Rizzi's office, I thought top-shelf tequila meant Cuervo Gold. Now I know better. Jim, you'll be missed!

Re: “Sex-Education in School

My highlight was that the teacher was head cheerleader at our high school about five years earlier. All the guys were drooling listening to her "health" lessons.

Re: “Who Won the Drug War?

In addition to the many societal costs of prohibition, it has a long history of driving the spread of harder or more dangerous drugs.
* Poppies to morphine to heroine to krokodil
* Coca to cocaine to crack
* Ephedra to ephredrine to speed to methamphetamine
* Marijuana to skunk to dangerous synthetic concoctions such as 'spice' or 'bath salts'
* Mushrooms to ecstasy to 2CB/designers
At every step the reasons for the rise in popularity of the new form of the drug are one or more of the following:
* It may easier to smuggle.
* It may be more addictive, thus compelling the buyer to return more frequently.
* It may be cheaper to produce therefore yielding more profit.
* Like a game of "whack a mole" a shutdown of producers in one area will mean business opportunities for another set of producers with a similar product.
Prohibition's distortion of the immutable laws of 'supply and demand' subsidizes organized crime, foreign terrorists, corrupt cops & politicians and feeds the prejudices of self-appointed culture warriors. So called Tough-On-Drugs politicians have happily built careers on confusing drug prohibition's horrendous collateral damage with the substances that they claim to be fighting, while the big losers in this battle are everybody else, especially taxpayers.
How come so many of us have been deluded into believing that big government is the appropriate response to non-traditional consensual vices?
Imagine if we were to chop down every single tree on the planet as a response to our failure to prevent tree-climbing accidents. That's what our misguided drug policy looks like. Isn't it time we all stood up and told the government we're tired of being beaten and jailed so that pharmaceutical companies can poison and kill us for obscene profits?

Re: “Lockout Thoughts

Imagine, if you will, 900 Karl Malones, and their celebrity sports agents, sitting in a limo outside the negotiations phoning in instructions to Derek Fisher. Yeah, that's how stupid it all seems to me. You've have hundreds of wealthy, nearly illiterate physical abberations deciding they just want MORE DAMMIT and all you little people can suck it!

Re: “Minority Viewpoints

That recycling newspaper is utter bullshit.
Coincidentally, I learned that from Penn & Teller's most excellent show,"Bullshit!"
Lesson: Paper is made from trees grown specifically to produce. . .paper. You can't print 300 dpi, glossy, full-color images on paper made from pine trees or oak trees or old growth forests. It's the wrong kind of fiber. Same with newsprint. Trees grown for paper are farmed, culled, replanted, culled, replanted, etc. on a farm, just like corn. The ecological damage comes from you driving to the recycling bin in your car that burns non-renewable fossil fuels and from the horrific diesel trucks that drive all over town picking up your recycled paper. At the recycling plant, minimum wage workers sort and process incoming paper while a single figurehead or "plant manager" goes around town at $50,000 a year appearing on news shows and community affairs programs encouraging people to recycle and touting what great humans they are saving trees! The carbon footprint of the operation is HUGE, requires fuel, electricity, chemicals to wash-out printing ink, steam/dry heat output into the air.
So, the next time you finish a paper, THROW IT AWAY! You'll plant more trees that way.
