Saint Patrick From Now On

I find that my usual language and tone, while normal in the Chicago neighborhood I'm originally from, are not understood the same way by people who are not from the same urban environment.

So I'm going to be making a dedicated effort to use less crude speech about the tragic violation of human rights being imposed by the Biden administration.

Not going to change my principles, just trying to reach a wider audience, to drive the snakes out of government.

I don't know from what, but certainly a gift. They are exceptional creatures. I don't think I can bring a dog through a full life cycle again, but I think I can foster again. It was very rewarding.

All Jokes Aside, Scientists Find Talking Duck


A Dutch scientist has uncovered old recordings of a musk duck mimicking the phrase, “You bloody fool!”

I think the duck really said "Have you got any grape?"

Holy water helped spread disease in the Dark Ages.

Also, I was raised Catholic, confession is absolutely degrading and it's basically a way for the Church to gather blackmail material on noteworthy people. It's the same way the Church of Scientology keeps members in their group - they basically do the same thing, but now we have modern recording technology and they use it with a crude lie detector.

Lies can be more accurately detected with voice stress analyzers and with microexpressions driven by AI.

They found that 86 percent of water samples from holy sources contain fecal matter, and every milliliter of holy water contained up to 62 million bacteria, none of it safe to drink.

Old ladies at one of my churches would rinse their dentures in the holy water to have holy clackers. After that, I only pretended to put my fingers in.

With regard to what Patrick said

I'm from NY, upstate NY, but NY just the same.

I don't see any difference from you since this announcement and your current postings. I'd tone down my BS, if I could see it.

One thing I have learned is to greatly reduce my sarcasm. When I (rarely) use it, I am very explicit to be overly sarcastic and not to be subtle at all. That's one thing I actually appreciate about Commiefornia, is people hate sarcasm here, especially subtle sarcasm. I hate it now too, it's just screwing with people when you are subtle about it, because you know, Poe's Law, you cannot differentiate between a nutcase and somebody pretending to be a nutcase, expecting them to realize you're only pretending.

I'm an incredible asshole still, but you never knew me when I lived in Boston. Glad that previous version of me is more or less dead.

Ah confession... perhaps the least understood of all the Catholic Sacraments. I don't mind going (though I don't go as often as I should). It's not about the priest its about you and Jesus. The priest is just the intermediary. It has its roots in Jesus instructions when commissioning his apostles. ("Whosoever sins you forgive are forgiven, whosever sins you retain are retained.")

I'm not going to sit here and spew Catholic dogma. Irrespective of your religous view it's pretty simple. Treat others with respect. Do that at the rest falls into place. But when we mess up, and we all do, it's how we deal with it that shoes our true character.

The old AA adage is that the first step is admiting you have a problem. Sitting there acknowledging your sins to another person can be a powerful healing tool if done correctly.

If done incorrectly it's awkward and embarrassing. I understand why many Catholics don't go.

And for the record I've never been a big fan of the communial dish of holy water. Seems unsanitary, but probably harmless.

I understand the sentiment. It took me a very long time to tone down my aggressive city attitude on the internet and in general. It just comes with age and reflection really.

Remember, we're all way more agreeable than we used to be as kids. Doesn't mean we should completely change or hide our personalities for someone else's feelings. That's the kind of attitude that's destroying everything. Unfortunately, there are folks that won't even listen unless you talk to them like Mister Rogers.

There's a balance somewhere. As a culture, we're trapped in the extremes if we play the media's games.

A couple of things. I admire Dr. Malone's reasonable tone. And I can see for myself that people listen for a just a moment longer if the tone is more neutral and factual. And my wife was encouraging me because she is perhaps even more convinced than I am of the extreme harm and unfairness of vaxx mandates after of the death of her co-worker.

Prankster kids would drop dry ice in the holy water and freak church goers out. When I was an altar boy, one of the others ate unconsecrated hosts. The priest came in and caught him and broke a big church candle over his head in front of us.

When I was an altar boy, the priest was an alcoholic. I guess they eventually sent him to some kind of priest rehab. During mass, he would guzzle the wine right in front of everybody, taking swigs out of the bottle even. It was pretty funny, he'd do it every time, and we would laugh. That church wine always smelled and tasted pretty foul to me (yeah, the altar boys would do that, too).

Where/what is "BA"?

People from Boston are super rude. Trying to be polite or kind is met with derision. If, for example, you turn on your blinker light, somebody will block you just to be a dick. Worst city in the world. The rest of New England calls them Massaholes.

He was a friend of the family because my father and he would get shitfaced together (military base). I think priests have lots of outlets for enjoyment of all descriptions. Confession is for them, too. Gay priests are big cruisers.

Oh obviously, I'm stupid not to have recognized that.

The Bay Area I find to be quite polite. For example, me and my friend often hang out after work outside of my company (which is in a set of buildings owned by a 3rd party) to have a cookout. There's a grill there, nobody uses it (because nobody comes in), and we reheat pizza, or cook bratwurst or hamburgers. I have to fiddle with the gas line to make it work, and I had to replace a battery to get the ignition to work, etc. It was intentionally disabled during the coof, I fixed it.

Yesterday we got caught by security. We've been doing this for weeks.

In Boston, I would have been required to show ID, my manager would have been contacted, and I would have to face consequences almost certainly. I would have been forcibly removed and/or escorted off the premises. If I resisted, police would have been called and would have shown up.

Here, the security guard came up to me, asked me what I was doing, I apologized, said "I didn't realize it mattered" offered to leave, he said "don't bother" and gave me the ridiculous procedure I have to go through to sign up to use the grill which is a hurdle nobody would jump though, I offered him food which he politely declined and left and I hung out with my friend for another 2 hours drinking beers and making cheese burgers unmolested. Last time we can do that again for at least a good long while - it's getting cold anyhow and it's no real loss.

Here, being courteous and agreeable go far. If I'm trespassing, and I'm approached by security, I recognize that's security, I'm trespassing, I can put them at ease quickly by being honest, forthright, and apologetic. I'm never combative, I'll accept and obey requests, I'm not argumentative. If I do this HERE, I never have a problem. When I'm doing something stupid like trespassing, I realize I am in the wrong, I realize they have a job to do, I'm not supposed to be there, but I'm also not there to vandalize, steal, etc but they don't know that. When approached by security and I realize I'm being approached, I often come to them and speak first and ask them "am I causing a problem?" and they explain the problem I'm causing which I know I'm already guilty of then I offer a solution which is too dramatic, but I will follow if they agree to it - which they rarely ever do.

In Boston, being agreeable, polite and non combative doesn't help. They aren't agreeable or polite and they are combative.

For all that security guard knew, I was some homeless guy lying about working at the company, stealing 10 cents of natural gas. I wasn't asked to prove my identity. It would have been much worse on the East Coast because there, I would have had to prove my identity, they would have checked to see I worked there, the building manager would have been called, and my boss would have been notified. I would have been detained. The building supervisor would have been pissed, they would piss of my bosses' boss, which would piss off my boss, and it would have been taken out upon me - almost certainly.

The West Coast is MUCH more laid back than the East Coast. Situations that I intentionally create can easily be defused. Yeah, I was in the wrong, and I knew I was probably breaking rules at the start, but I also knew when I was eventually caught and confronted I had a 99.9% chance of getting out of it. I wouldn't do what I did in Boston.

I was being an asshole doing what I did, I realize, but here the security guard recognizes "he's being an asshole, but he's immediately standing down and isn't being an asshole now" - I got immediate forgiveness. I don't think that happens in Boston. There it's "you knew you were being an asshole, I'll fucking teach you not to be an asshole again, you fucking asshole" and then the security guard would have fucked me in every way he possibly could to teach me a lesson no matter what I did.

Haha, spies are traitors to the group they infiltrate. I have better moral sensibilities than that.

Spies aren't James Bond, they are Whitey Bulger. They are moral scum. They befriend and infiltrate a group with the intention of betraying them to start with. The 500+ people in jail for the January "insurrection" were betrayed by spies. That's what spies ACTUALLY do. They are born traitors.

Multiple personalities aren't required, I think you need to be a sociopath to be a spy - or at least it helps. Narcissism does as well.

I can be very manipulative, but I never do this to harm the person I'm manipulating. I have empathy too, and frankly, I respect blue collar workers more than I respect white collar workers. I'm a white collar worker, and I become submissive to blue collar. They don't need me, I need them, and I'm fully aware of this even if they aren't.

See what a spy actually is. Nothing more than a professional traitor. This is 50 years old. Nothing has changed. The Black Panthers were originally a break away group that simply wanted to have autonomy, and the ability to police their own areas. They were good, moral, people - who happened to be black. They were a militia that was black that properly identified the enemy was their own government. All they wanted was autonomy. The man below was somebody that worked against that cause.

BTW, I saw a comment somewhere that a lot of Catholics who are fed up with the woke pope are converting to Orthodox Christianity, which seems to be more traditional. Certainly more orthodox, lol.
