|Family / Re: Making Love & Raising A Family by minute(f): 12:56pm On Dec 16, 2013|
I personally learned a lot about what NOT to do from my parents. Even if I did feel that they were instrumental in forming
my perception of love, I truly don't think accepting and believing love is genetic or inherited. It is something you learn
from experience . . .especially if the parents survive within the confines of a loveless marriage.
Perhaps subconsciously we choose people that have qualities that remind us of someone we know. However I don't think
there's any clear evidence to prove that theory.
The right person will be your best friend first and foremost and a lover second. You will enjoy many things together but also
relish in your space without resentment. This knowledge also comes from experience . . .first love and true love are two
Someone can definitely be crazy about you . . or vice versa .. .and not be the right one. Once the sheer bliss of your
intimate times blows over, you can think more clearly and see someone for who they really are. Sometimes, you discover
they aren't as wonderful as you initially thought . . .sometimes you realize they are the best thing that's ever happened

Hee. Chubby and Spandex. A woman with a voluptuous or rubenesque body type is restricted enough by her
extra Avior dupois. I applaude women who do have the confidence to wear tight clothes. It says a lot about how
they tell the whole world they are doing their own things.

|TV/Movies / Re: "Scandal" Fan Page. by minute(f): 1:06pm On Nov 03, 2013|
I normally don't like to watch drama series because they just drag on and seriously stop making sense. Shona Rhimes has
this knack of making her female protagonists cry at the drop a hat. If Olivia is as strong as it is portrayed, a fixer then why
she on cues start crying. The unnecessary morality of the show that Olivia portrays sucks the most-
She has no problem agreeing to rig election(supposedly she loves the guy and can't stand him loosing). She had no problem
when Huck said he will kill Chambers(job he passed on to Charlie), but she wanted Jake saved? Why? What is the reason?
She used the Pentagon or whatever secure area thing to make a plan like an idi.ot when her name is leaked?!! I mean come on!!
The only people who looked for mole were Pope and associates, I mean the entire government was sleeping?!! And in between
the President has no work but to keep professing his love?!! Get over it man . . .I mean a layman doing the same thing would be
called a psycho but we are watching the President and his obsession. His wife is the only smart person. You are here for a job.
I would prefer in every episode- they have a new case every week to keep the story line interesting. Scandal is nothing but a
cry fest by Olivia and her faces and other characters have nothing to do. President is sloppy-it's pathetic!
|Health / Re: A Thread For Body Builders by minute(f): 11:06pm On Oct 22, 2013|
I find guys who are completely ripped gross. Too many muscles make him look like he's compensating for something.
Most of the time, body builders have such an ego problem. They push out their chest and their arms go farther
on each side like they are ready to rumble. A simple "how are you today" will turn into a 20 minute lecture of what
he had for breakfast, what supplements he was 'currently' trying, what he had done in the gym and how long
he had done it for, how his body felt and how it was changing, what he had read up the internet about protein,
creatine muscle development and Men's health in general......I could go on and on.
It's a pity because under all that armour plating and external veneer, is a warm and kind person too scared to just be.

|Family / Re: How Embarrassing Can It Get During The 9months Course(pregnancy). by minute(f): 5:25am On Oct 19, 2013|
1. My biggest problem while pregnant was the urges to urinate. I never had morning sickness. I just always had to pee!
One time I was at a store, buying what I hoped was my last set of maternity clothes. While I was trying on a shirt, I
suddenly got that feeling where you know you have to relive yourself right that minute. I had no idea where the restrooms
were, or if the store even had restroom and piddled there. I told the dressing room attendant that someone else had done
it,and quickly left . . .I've never gone back to that store.
2. I was at the mall with a friend. We were enjoying lunch when the urge hit. I was lucky enough to find a bathroom, but
not before wetting my panties. I wrapped my panties in toilet tissue and disposed of them. It's not like anyone was going to
look up my skirt. When we finished lunch, we decided to hit the stores. My friend wanted to go to her ABSOLUTE favorite
store, so I said we should check it out. Well, she was taking forever, looking at all their clothes, looking for her size, looking
for presents for other people, e.t.c. And then, I had to wee. It's not like I could just pop a squat in the middle of the store, so
I tried as hard as I could to hold it and politely asked my friend to hurry up. Then, the most horrible thing happened. I couldn't
hold it anymore. A strong stream of urine came out and hit the floor. I tried to stop myself but I couldn't. All the contents of my
bladder came out. There was a humongous puddle beneath me( I was wearing a skirt). I left the store drip-drying by leaving little
droplets behind me.
3. I was having dinner at a really fancy hotel with my partner when the urge hit me. I asked a waiter for directions to the
bathroom, but got lost along the way. I considered knocking on the door of a suite and asking to use their toilet. I finally found
the bathroom, but I knew I couldn't make it to the stall. So I hoisted myself up and let loose in the sink. Not my finest moments.....

It's too bad about his employment situation. But I don't think he's a loser if he's doing what it takes to give himself
a home and food to eat. And there is one way securuty guards are BETTER than policemen. When they work for a
private company, rather than the government. The only security guards I consider as losers are the ones that are
Badge Heavy cop-wannabe. I have respect for those who have authority where it is needed. Especially
where safety is concerned. They do everything a police officer does except arrest people, but the big difference is
when things get tough, they call the police.
|Romance / Re: Is Kissing And Romancing Before Marriage 'Fornication' ? by minute(f): 1:51pm On Oct 08, 2013|

That is just sad beyond words.

Dang! She is truly the queen of hip hop and there will never be another.
I saw her in concert a few times--she's incredible and she dances her azz off.
But I prefer the old bitter drama Mary JB. I'm talkin real love--I'm goin down--Reminisce-
Sweet thang--Love no limit--You remind me--Seven days. . .Not goin' cry!!! This is what made
MARY MARY. And that joint with Method man--You're all I need--That was so hot it melted it
melted it's fare share of radios.
The new No Drama Bs is Bs. I honestly thought her career was over. She's still doin' the damn
thing though and I still love her.
|Family / Re: The Other Woman by minute(f): 1:35pm On Sep 25, 2013|
That's a lousy thought . .
I have been in ALL sides of the love triangle. In my youth I dated married men/women. When we tired each other
it ended amicably. I never wanted any of them to leave their partner, and they never said they would.
People talk about catching their spouse cheating. I don't know about that. I never got caught. So, I never had to
deal with a crazy husband or an irate wife.
Would I date a married man/woman now? No. When I was done "screwing around" I was ready for a meaningful relationship.
Dating a married man/woman you don't get a meaningful relationship, you get sex and a few laughs.
If you want to know what happens behind closed doors with the other woman I will tell you. We do A LOT of active listening,
laughing at stupid jokes, and (in general) not being judgemental or critical. It seems their husbands had forgotten how to do
that. I'm sure their husbands would disagree . . .but they would be wrong.
|Family / Re: Getting Married As An Undergraduate by minute(f): 12:32pm On Sep 25, 2013|
It's difficult to be in school, start a marital relationship, run a household, and work . . . . under any circumstances.
If you think you know your man right now, knowing him in marriage will be slightly different when you are still trying
to figure yourself out. I mean unless you are pregnant, what's the point? You won't be able to see each other much
Finish your education. Join the workforce. Get a steady job. Build up a reasonable savings account. Travel the world.
Do cool things. Do these things as individuals.
You are not going to see any advantages to being married as an undergraduate. Only added stress.
GET your life together first.
|Health / Re: Beware Of These Banned Food Products by minute(f): 1:08pm On Sep 14, 2013|
The Nigeria business model is "money over everything". They don't care about what they stuff down
you as long as it makes them money. They have no responsibility to you and the consumers only the shareholders.

Hit. She is big and hot. A pretty smile takes attention away from a lot of things.
I like big chicks but not fat and sloppy ones that are stereotypical slobs. Big
is nice as long as she can carry herself in a way that is attractive. I mean as long as
she does not use her chubs to get handicap plates, use electric carts at the supermarket
or have zits under all the folds or blubber.

|Family / Re: Question: Is Silent Treatment In A Relationship Healthy? by minute(f): 4:04am On Sep 12, 2013|
I would allow the silent treatment to run it's course. Typically depending on how mad or disappointed they are.
Alternatively try something else, anything you can think of to break the stubborn, uneasy atmosphere.
Perhaps eat and drink noisily around the person-some examples include slurping loudly on a nice milkshake, especially
when you reach the bottom of the glass, and smacking your lips when you eat food near them.
Burp and break wind(fart) in or near the area where the "silent treatment people" are standing/sitting.
"Accidentally" turn up your stereo/Tv in your bedroom to full- blast, and "unwittingly" wake up your family first thing
in the morning.

|Religion / Re: Can You Be A Christian And Still Be Gay? by minute(f): 5:12pm On Sep 03, 2013|
People don't get a choice about whether they are gay or not, they either are, or they're not.
That need to be understood first of. There is no sin in having homosexual tendencies. There is
nothing sinful in being attracted to the same gender. What is wrong in Christianity faith is
acting on those tendencies. Many Christian churches choose to interpret the Bible differently
and so choose to justify their sin, but many do not. Many Christian churches choose to ostracize
gays as choosing this path, and thereby drive them away from their church.
The trick is acknowledging their existence, and then supporting them in their trials.
Homosexuals have hard trials. They either need to live a totally celibate life, or else they need
to learn to love someone of the opposite gender. I can't tell which is harder. I have a close male
homosexual friend who married a homosexual woman, who was his best friend. He loved her as a friend
and as a person, and he has since learned to love her as a wife. They have two children together.
I have another homosexual friend who will never go on a single date with anyone of either gender. That
is what she decided she needed to do in order to keep herself free of sin. Both of these people have a
hard life, and why God decided they needed this particular challenge in their life, I don't know. But both
of these friends are dealing with it, in a righteous way, and I am very proud of both of them.

|Family / Re: IVF Or Child Adoption: Which One Would U Advice? by minute(f): 12:26am On Aug 27, 2013|
Fibroids don't keep you from getting pregnant. I'd use the $ for IVF, and hopefully it will work.
Adoption is NOT something to talk someone into. Either you are the adopting type or not.
It is not right to adopt a child who has already been separated from his/her family to serve
as a consolation prize to your infertility.
Adopted kids are really special need kids. They suffer profound losses, and are truly emotionally
different from biological kids born into their own families.
I think adoption is wonderful, but forcing someone to grow up in the dark, with closed and sealed
records, secrets and lies,no genetic mirroring and genetic bewilderment is just cruel and they stigma
tize the adoptee as some kind of dangerous underclass.
I know you'll find this difficult to understand but i don't think that adoption should be used
as a form of birth control, which it is, I also don't think that it should be used as a topic of conver-
-sation at a table, which it is.
