Pyro: I like to think they're in a better place now :)

:mrgreen:

Seems Myrddin pursued a life in archeology, right? That's probably keeping him busy. I wonder what Ash has been up to though...

Hmm, just realized I hadn't updated the daylight savings time on the board settings... oops :P

I don't mean to pull a Rubrica on the forum :P

But I've got myself in an interesting predicament.

So a few months ago I started seeing this lady, right?

Well now I'm in love. No doubt about it, and it's mutual, but I'm just a 16 year old kid...

Is that practical? Ethical? What do you guys think?

Well she's in her late 50s...

:mrgreen:

Haha, come on! She's my age.

But yes, I take it? Seems strange though... other people my age aren't really paired off, you know? And if they are it usually only lasts a week or so. But I don't see this ending any time soon at all.

Practical? Yes - this is how the human race propagates.

Ethical? Unless you're blood relatives you're pretty much free to love who you like :wink:

You're young, you know it might last or not, so enjoy it. Being in love will be the best and worst times of your life - usually at almost the same time.

Hah, maybe I should have been a wee bit more specific huh :P

Okay, well I just wanted some consent, hehe. I know you're all random people scattered over the globe, but I feel like we're at the very least good acquaintances on here :)

And, yes, I've experienced the joys and sorrows, often at the same time... so I know what you mean there.

And, who says it has to last, you know? I think it can be about enjoying it while it's here.

Anyway, that's enough lovey dovey stuff from Nabster for now :)

How bout them Phoenix Suns, eh? :P

I don't have my head in the sand enough to believe that "you're sixteen, you don't know what love is," but I'm also not crazy enough to think that every sixteen-year-old relationship is going to end in married bliss. A sad/happy fact of life is that relationships end. Even the ones you like, sometimes. Other times, though, it's a good thing; had my other relationships not ended, I'd have never met my soon-to-be-wife. This is the most exciting time of my life, and all because other relationships ended.

On the other hand, some relationships -- regardless of the age of the partners -- last a very long time. Even forever. I know an older couple who are still married, fifty years after they met...in junior high. I met my fiancee at age 22, but I know a lot of people meet the one they'll be with forever a lot younger than that.

So, I guess what I'm trying to say is...have fun. One of man's greatest pleasures in the world is simply being in the presence of the woman he loves. Maybe this will last forever, maybe you'll find someone you love even more on down the road (no matter how impossible it may feel right now). Whatever the outcome, you're with her now. Enjoy it.

Oh, and don't worry about "pulling a Rubrica." Rubrica can be one of the most intelligent and emotionally aware members we have. He may be young, but he's a great guy.

Amen.

So, Health Care has passed.

Great change or greatest change?

Don't be too proud of this socialistic terror you've constructed. The ability to create a health care plan is insignificant next to the power of people to manipulate the system.

Thanks David, I can definitely see your reasoning, and that's what I've decided on as well. Regardless of whether its everlasting or not, I ought to enjoy it while it's here.

And no offense was meant towards Rubrica, I have the highest respect for him :)

Meh. The healthcare bill at this point is little more than a thousand-page paperweight - insofar as one would use paper to hold down more paper. ;)

And to those claiming "Socialism", you are crazy and wrong. I stopped caring months ago, but when last I saw, there was no Public Option, there was no Medicare buy-in, there was only legislation mandating that I must purchase health insurance FROM THE EXISTING PRIVATE COMPANIES. That's still Capitalism, friends. :P

Also, a rare post where I'm going to be completely serious.

@ Frontcannon:

I'm not entirely certain that that image breaks any rules, but seriously? If you don't like Obama, that's perfectly fine - the country is about 50% split along party lines, so half the country is going to disagree with whomever is in power at any given time - but that image and the myriad like it are hyperbolic to the point of idiocy.

Hitler systematically killed tens of millions of people in an attempt to ethnically cleanse a country. Obama is trying to make health insurance more affordable. There is no comparison.
