    Gift Thread

    What did you give for Christmas? What did you get for Christmas? "Give" is listed first because I notice people are usually a lot more excited about what they gave people than what they got.

    Self Improvement VS Changing Who I Am

    "So you're saying I'm not GOOD ENOUGH for you the way I am?" "A woman marries a man hoping he will change. A man marries a woman hoping she will never change. Both are disappointed." Where is the line between "My spouse wants me to clean up a few things I really should have taken care of long...

    NEW Christmas music

    Can anybody recommend any Christmas music that is not the same old songs we hear every year? I'm already going to have a holly jolly Christmas, we don't have a real tree to rock around, I'm not going anywhere that I will be home for Christmas from, and last year uncle Brent shot Rudolph...

    Cheesy Friendship Lines

    Like cheesy pickup lines, but for friends... Not to get friends (that would get back into pickup lines) but for those who are already your friends. Today's cheesy friendship line comes from today's Breaking Cat News comic strip: "Are you one of the Golden Girls? Cause I'd like to thank you...

    Women Rule!

    What would the world be like if the laws were written by women? Somebody in chat mentioned most of the criminals in prisons were guys. Somebody else observed the laws we have were based on law frameworks made by men. The destructive things men normally do have laws against them, whereas women...

    Severe Dressing Down

    No, we're not talking about castigation. It's a pun title for a thread about what clothes you wear. What do you prefer to wear? Do you like bright colors? Neutral colors? Whites? Do you pull an Ian Malcolm and wear all black and grey? Are there any social criteria that determine how you...

    Time Well Spent

    Old saying: "Nobody lies on his deathbed wishing he had spent more time at the office." What DO people wish they had spent more time doing? I started thinking about this a while ago. I've never heard anybody say "I wish I'd spent more time partying." I've never heard anybody regret not...

    Internet and Curiosity: Better now or worse?

    I remember back when I was young, and I had questions for which I could not easily get answers. Some things I wondered about, but we had no internet to answer all questions, and certainly no phones to bring the internet and search engines with me wherever I was. But these days I can answer all...

    Time To Go

    I've seen different churches handle end-of-service time different ways, so I thought I might start a poll. Does your church have a definite time when y'all are supposed to get out? If it does, how strict is it? What happens if they run into overtime? What might be legitimate grounds for...

    Den of Thieves

    Christianity is big business these days. All you have to do to make money is keep up with the current trends (WWJD, Chicken Soup for the Soul, Prayer of Jabez, etc.) and make products to suit. Somebody will buy them. And you don't even have to go to the Christian bookstore. You can sell them...

    How I Won At Life

    "I'm lonely." "I'm bored." "I'm isolated." "If I died today nobody would realize it for a month." "When I try to make friends they look at me like I'm a freak." "Nothing I say or do matters and I'm starting to not care if it does." "I'm a failure at life." Sound familiar? That's where my life...

    Sunny Day!

    Seriously, this is what it feels like to be on this forum these days. I know it is currently fashionable to actively look for reasons to be offended, but do we have to bring it into the forum? It's starting to feel like BDF in EVERY forum these days. No matter what a person posts, there is a...

    What is normal?

    Just what is normal? If I met somebody who was truly normal, would that be normal or weird? Is "normal" a matter of what the majority is doing? Being pro-gay seems to be popular these days. Does that make it normal? If there was a row of four soda vending machines and three were out of order...

    Oddly Specific Superpowers

    Time for a new game! This game has to do with superpowers. You are presented with a superpower that has oddly specific limitations, and you tell how you would use it. Then you bring up another superpower with very specific limitations. So if you could teleport, but only exactly four yards in...

    Signs, Signs (Everywhere A Sign)

    Topic: When is it okay to ask God for a sign? In another thread we were talking about how sometimes God will give you a sign when you ask for it. Then again, sometimes God won't. So when is it okay to ask God for a sign? In Matthew 16 Jesus called them foolish and adulterous when they asked...
