    The Peril Of Immunization

    No it does not. That's what the masks are for. Masks protect other people from your infectious self. Immunizations protect you from the jerks around you who might be contagious but refuse to wear masks.

    Also, punishing some people for a crime is a sin, and punishing some people for a sin is a crime! :eek: Burned any witches lately?

    What Causes Divorce/Can it Really be Prevented?

    Here's a hint: Between sin and crime, one never changes (because the one who decided it was bad never changes) and the other changes all the time (depending on which groups of people agree it is bad.) Bonus hint: Sin is not always a crime and a crime is not always sin.

    You know the difference between sin and crime, right? I ask because you seem to be getting them confused, especially in this post.

    What Advice/Information Were You Given That Has Completely Changed Over Time, or Just Not Worked for You?

    "You should be careful reading those health magazines. You might die of a misprint." - Samuel Clemens quote (slightly modified for modern magazines.) Those health magazines print what they think their readers want to read, not what is best for their readers to read. So it's always all about...

    Colour

    I remember this one woman who had dyed her hair for so long she forgot what color it was naturally. So she let it grow out to see... and it was grey. :p

    Preachers and weight

    Yeah, but... that's different! When I tell you about it, it's good advice. When I'm thinking about doing it myself... nah, I'm alright. I know a lot of people who are worse off than I am (because it makes me feel a lot better when I think of people who are doing even worse than I am doing) and...

    I used the latest LMDE for a few months last year. It seemed to have a RAM leak somewhere. If I opened too many browser tabs it would suddenly freeze and require a hard reset.

    No problem ma'am. As long as it's not iOS we're good to go. I am (for the most part) an operating system agnostic - I'll use whatever works for the task at hand.

    What Causes Divorce/Can it Really be Prevented?

    It's a case of the microdevil they know versus the Linux they don't. If they have Windows I don't have to explain anything to them about how to use it. Cuts down a LOT on after-transfer tech support. And it's free to them so I don't get paid for tech support either. :p Actually I never bother...

    Inner Peace

    I take that back. He was not lazy. He was always hunting mice and lizards in the wilds of the back yard. That's probably how he stayed so thin. He just never got uptight over anything.

    Actually... looking over that list in the OP, all three of those cats hit every one of those points.

    My sweet little Nancia could. Man, I still miss that cat. Maxwell, a very large black-and-grey striped tabby cat, could live up to that. He was the only cat my father ever liked, because he was very undemanding. He didn't have to have your attention. It was enough for him to be in the same...

    ~Chuckle for the Day~

    How old is that clip? Do they even make film for that kind of camera any more? Sorry, I know, the point is switching between young ladies and old guys. But as a nerd the camera caught my attention more. Everybody just uses a smartphone these days. (I also have trouble watching Matlock with my...

    I dunno... I know some people who fit everything on that list except the part about coffee. Gives new meaning to the phrase "living a dog's life." And my dog misses that list by one. He is NEVER understanding when I'm too busy to give him attention. :p

    What Causes Divorce/Can it Really be Prevented?

    Yeah, well... in my case it's more like "wipe out and reinstall Windows, put in a bunch of freeware programs and games and give it to a kid or elderly person who only needs a basic computer to watch youtube videos and catch up with facebook..." But I didn't want to bring "handing off your spouse...
