@Mental Incompetence is a Social Destroyer.
Really? Garrett? Is that just an around-about way of bitching about the fact that you don't have a social life?
@Cog Re: To Garrett - "Is that just an around-about way of bitching about the fact that you don't have a social life?"
Seriously, Cog? That just shows what a poor judge or character you are, banana breath. Either that, or you are just terribly jealous. Because I am willing to bet our buddy Garrett is a virtual social STUD. Shit, I bet he has probably LOST more friends that I have ever had. Yep, with his dashing good looks, quick wit, magnetic personality, and humble boyish charm, who WOULDN'T want Garrett at their next big gathering? No telling how many invitations he has to politely decline each day. After all, a man has got to get some sleep now and then, right? Hell, he probably even has a secretary to help him keep track of all of his social obligations.
So, yeah, the more I think about it, the more I believe you are just being jealous and putting Garrett down just to make you feel better about yourself. So pathetic. I expected so much better of you.... *shaking head in disappointment*...
@Tin: Yes: When I look into my soul, I have to admit you are right. I am sexually attracted to Garrett. That manly deep furrowed brow, beady eyes, manly five o'clock shadow, stinky faded yellow t-shirt and happy rainbow suspenders (Notice how I completely avoided the word g..... never mind.) just makes me wanna..... THE REST OF THIS STORY IS TOO GRAPHIC FOR THE SITE.
The fact is; I am envious of his social live and desperately want to be penciled in on his calendar. I hope he likes bananas. Those ape like cro magnon features make him as sexy as doG.
Ahhh fuck!!!! More competition?!?!!!!
Jesus fuckin Christ, the things I have to do to hold his “attention”...
Major loves bananas and carries on like a pork chop until I share. He goes bananas in fact .
@White Re: Pics
... *throwing hands up in exasperation*... Aw, geeez! Now we're gonna have to come up with a totally NEW sex classification!... *weary sigh*... How am I suppose to keep track of all these things?... *shaking head in dismay*...
@Cog Re: "Those ape like cro magnon features make him as sexy as doG."
Look, now you're just being ridiculous. It's one thing trying to kiss Garret's ass in an attempt to make him like you, but to say he is as sexy as doG just makes you sound desperate. We ALL know there is nobody else anywhere as sexy as doG, so your trying to compare Garrett to him is ludicrous. Garrett will easily see through that and know you aren't being sincere.
...*resigned sigh*... Listen, if you are truly set on being part of Garrett's glam-n-glitter Mr. Popular lifestyle, then just be cool, man. You gotta chill. Know what I mean? Be loose. Be casual. Those intense needy vibes you are giving off can be a real joy-kill, dude. Nobody wants that kind of shit killing the mood of a gawdy grand gala. Biggest thing, though, is just stop kissing his ass so much. No doubt he gets that from everybody else all the time, so it must get really old for him. Garrett doesn't need anymore ass-kissers. He just needs a friend. Don't be an ass-kisser, Cog.
@Tin: *Hunched over in a corner. Face covered in palms. Heaves of sorrow. Tears Streaming down my face.* "I just don't know how to fucking do it. I just can't. I fucking can't do it! There just isn't a subtle bone in my body. I just don't get subtlety. I'm a bad little monkey!! *Smashing my fist against my head in a gesture I learned from my best friend Garrett.* Damn damn damn damn damn.
@Cog Re: "*Smashing my fist against my head in a gesture I learned from my best friend Garrett.*"
...*encouraging smile*... *supportive voice*... See? There you go! Excellent! Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Let's him know you really care. Now that you two have something in common, how can he not help but want you as a true companion?
@Tin: *Looking up with a glean of hope.* Really? ... But now I have realized there is only one woman for me. As cute as Garrett is, she just doesn't have the ability to wield a rolling pin. I would love to make her my bitch. Grab those rainbow suspenders from the back, rip off that stinky yellow shirt and (REMOVED BY SELF BEFORE MODERATORS COULD GET TO IT.) ..... and get down monkey style. Alas, fantasy is never as gratifying as reality and I still have the bruises to prove it.
I will never fathom why people come to atheist sites to discuss completely irrelevant bollocks.
It's almost as frustrating as drive by theists and the other theists that inevitably come on here, state an argument and when anything poses a threat to their cherished world views, we get "I'm not prepared to discuss that, it's for a separate debate!"
@Randomhero1982: I completely concur. Excellent post. Whenever I begin ripping my hair out over the ignorance of such posts, I bake a banana pie. It's from an old recipe my mother had.
Homemade pie crust (recipe makes 2 crusts; you can halve the crust recipe or freeze the 2nd half)1
1 and 3/4 cups (420ml) whole milk
1/2 cup (120ml) heavy cream
1/2 cup (100g) granulated sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
4 large egg yolks
1/4 cup (30g) cornstarch
1 and 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
2 Tablespoons (28g) unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
optional: sprinkle of ground cinnamon
1 cup (240ml) heavy cream
2 Tablespoons (15g) confectioners’ sugar
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Make the filling: Combine the milk, heavy cream, sugar, and salt in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Whisk until all the sugar has dissolved, then bring to a gentle simmer, whisking occasionally. Working quickly as the milk mixture begins to simmer, whisk the egg yolks and cornstarch together in a medium heatproof bowl until thick and smooth. Very slowly stream in 1 cup (240ml) of the simmering milk to slightly warm the egg yolk mixture. Then, in a very slow stream, whisk the egg yolk mixture into the pan. While continuously whisking, cook until the mixture is thick and big bubbles begin bursting at the surface, about 1 minute. Remove the pan from heat and whisk in the vanilla extract and butter. Place a piece of plastic wrap directly on top of the warm pudding to prevent a “skin” from forming on top. Allow to cool for 15 minutes.
Slice 2 bananas and arrange slices into the cooled pie shell. Sprinkle with cinnamon. Spread cooled filling on top. Place a piece of plastic wrap directly on top of the filling. Again, to prevent a skin from forming. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours and up to 1 day.
When ready to serve, make the whipped cream: Using a hand mixer or a stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, beat the heavy cream, confectioners’ sugar, and vanilla on medium-high speed until stiff peaks form, about 5 minutes. Spread or pipe onto the chilled pie. Slice 2 remaining bananas and decorate the pie with slices. Slice and serve.
I love recipes -
@Randomhero1982 From whence did find the quaint notion that what you can understand is relevant? (not to mention an argument from ignorance logical fallacy) .
Has it occurred to you that not everyone comes here for robust debate? There' sno rule which says we must. We also happen to have a couple of very good moderators who decide what is or is not permitted, should there be any doubt.
Don't like something fine, ignore it
As is common in forums to which I've belonged ,posts also get derailed when people are bored or fed up with the OP. .
Short answer; you may become as frustrated as you like. Others here are not responsible for your feelings
You don't half talk an absolute pile of total bollocks, don't you.
Stop trying to be a faux intellectual.
@Randomhero1982: I hope that was not directed at Cranky. He literally told you the way it is. Why take people seriously when they don't even have the ability to give a shit about themselves or what can or should be taken seriously.
This reminds of Mario, the sheep shagger.
So one day Mario is drinking in the pub, and someone says "are you ok Mario"? And Mario says see those houses down there by the harbour I built those, but no one calls me Mario the house-builder, I painted them all, but does anyone call me Mario the house painter? See those boats near the harbour? I made those boats, but does anyone call me Mario the boat builder, no, but I shag one sheep...
@Sheldon: I still have the video!
So despite the OP author's dishonest rhetoric, no one has objected to the subject matter on the grounds it's objectionable. Though more than one person has quite understandably found the thread author objectionable.
FYI, since I'm no longer going to waste too much time trying engage him in rational discourse, I'd like to outline my moral position FWIW, and why I hold it.
Regardless of who or what a human has sexual congress with, I have the same criteria for raising any moral objections, and that is that no unnecessary suffering is caused.
To that end, consenting sex between adults, where no one is being forced, coerced or exploited in any way is morally acceptable. It should therefore be obvious that sex between a human and a species that cannot offer consent, and cannot reasonably be expected to object in any meaningful way, is therefore clearly being exploited, and probably made to suffer, and so it is an immoral action IMHO.
I held this view before this thread started, and though I'd have been happy to discuss the topic, I find the author's attitude has rendered that moot.
Anyway there's my position FWIW, if anyone else has any questions I'll happily try and answer them
...Sheldon... cannot reasonably be expected to object in any meaningful way, is therefore clearly being exploited,
I don’t even include “suffering” (because some twisted numbnuts will define suffering on their own terms)...
“My dog likes “peanut butter””...
“The kid likes “presents””...
Edited to add: Thinking upon this topic further, for myself, this is the crux. A physical response is not the “consent” (a struggle of guilt that can plague a sexual abuse survivor) and can put in “context” later in life due to maturity and “higher brain functions. As a society, this is a shared standard (age of consent) which can also have “grey areas”. However, an animal lacks higher brain function on par with humans and thereby, where is “consent”. It is exploitation.
Eg. “Here doggy, come-on’ boy - good doggy! Would you like me to cut off your paw? You would (rubbing behind ears, loving, excited voice)!”
@White: Oooo baby, What was I thinking? Don't go!! You dropped something!!
@White: Look, why don't we be reasonable. We can do a three-way. We could make it a 4-way if Homer agrees.
...ah Cog - even I have boundaries on my interspecial sex...plus I am a serial monogamous slut...
What the fuck has happened to this forum?
@NewSkeptic Re: "What the fuck has happened to this forum?"
Gee, I thought it was obvious. In an effort to meet Garrett's preferred standards of debate forum protocols, we are no longer censoring posts or discussion topics. Get with the program already, dude.... *rolling eyes*...
When the OP gives you bananas, make pudding.
Yummy to banana pudding, but seriously, this latest batch of trolls is hard to take.
I don't know if the troll schools have shut down, but I expected better theist posts with everyone having more free time, but these guys are making me long for Fergie and Breezy and the big Hulk guy.
