If people want to know whats in it for them besides warm fuzzies, I will accept challenges depending on the amount given etc (previous examples have included making me draw something, write you a poem or even someone donated £200 for me to dress up like superman!).

I've not experienced it first hand, but like everyone I know people who have lost loved ones and the pain they've felt. I've seen friends loose mothers, fathers, uncles, aunts, grandparents- and even children. Its horrendous and hits too many people. My mother lost her best friend 11 years ago to a long drawn out fight that came back three times before finally winning, another truly inspira
Is the United States a Christian nation?It's July 4th and I felt I had to do something special for today. I was thinking to do artwork for about a month before, but wasn't sure how to present it properly. One drawing or several drawings. Maybe a collage. Then I thought a journal entry would be more effective. They seem to get more views anyways.Is the United States a Christian nation?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
As I read through U.S. history and it's culture and understand them the past few years, and have been going to Church, I have questioned the U.S. being a Christian nation like most Christians seem to think. That it was founded as one though the founding fathers and that they were Christians, though I have read from some people that most were really Deists. That Thomas Paine didn't approve of Christians and that Thomas Jefferson choose to remove sections of his Bible that told of Jesus divinity. And then there's the Treaty of Tripoli, which has the quote:
"The government of the United States is in no sense founded on the Christian religion." George Washington.

They shot a poisoned arrow on her. She still looked at him.

'Will she tell me, that she love me, too? No. She is a Jedi. They are forbidden to love.' He thought.
She wanted to say something, but she could not speak.
He saw her eyes closing.
"No" he whispered. "It can't end like this."
She stammered something together.
"I...I..."she couldn't end her sentences.
Her breathing was slow, until it completely exposed. He rested his forehead on hers.
"I love you, Ahsoka." He whispered. "I always have."

Common Arguments regarding Ex-Atheists --Debunked. 1. There is no such thing as an "ex-atheist".Common Arguments regarding Ex-Atheists --Debunked.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
An ex-atheist is an individual who has abandoned the atheistic view of the "absence of belief" in a deity. I am one of them.
2. Ex-atheists were never atheist to begin with.
This is false. Atheism has no ideology or guideline in terms of who is a "true" atheist and who isn't. The closest thing to a "guideline" in terms of anti-religion is regarding "Dawkins Scale" representing the various levels of atheism depending on one's confidence level. But even then, there are flaws in the chart that go against reality terms of theism. To say that another individual was never an atheist before coming to religion after they proclaimed to be so is unruly in itself and only encourages that atheism is more like a religion rather than a freedom of religion. This is said because Christianity and other religions do have a guideline determining how true followers will handle doubt in face of a belief system or the

Jim HensonI would like to make my feelings about the Muppets well-known. Sure it's easy to see that I love them like crazy and are ecstatic that they are making a comeback with this new movie that was released this past November (which I loved ), but I really want to speak my mind about them.Jim Henson4 years ago in Personal More Like This
In 1955, Jim Henson created a short called Sam and Friends. This would be the start of what would become Sesame Street, The Muppet Show, and Fraggle Rock. The characters he created were something special and not just pieces of felt that could talk. The intricacy in creating these Muppets not only with their looks but their personalities and humanity really made them feel real to everyone.
Jim, like Walt Disney, wanted to change what he could do with his characters. He was able to make Kermit ride a bicycle, create a dragon that actually breathed fire, and creating costumes for well-known characters (as well as his own) that would look lovable (and not creepy).
For several decades, Jim Henson's work was we

They set up a new one. One which they use to rattle off whatever flatulance they believe passes as worthwhile commentary in the real world, most likely in the wake of mummy and daddy slapping them on the wrist over something - angsty, juvenile pricks that they are.
And juvenile they must be, as anyone with a mite more experience would realise that any weight you hope your words might have is completely lost when someone visits your "slander" profile and reads the numbers "0 Deviations", "0 Favourites", "0 Watchers", "No Journal entries", etc.
It renders your words as vacuous as your gallery.

Level 5 Trolling and Pacific Rim BeatenLevel 5 TrollingLevel 5 Trolling and Pacific Rim Beaten2 years ago in Personal More Like This
If this is old news, forgive me I just found it and thought it was hilarious:
Level 5 Studios (the company most noted for the Professor Layton series) was having their 15th year anniversary this week. Along with discounted game prices, part of the celebration was to make a wallpaper featuring player voted favorite characters. Unfortunately for Level 5, the voting of these characters quickly came under attack by trolls who hijacked the results and submitted obscure minor characters instead. The final list included the airplane from Aero Porter in first place with 46,000 votes.
Rather than toss out the votes and start over, Level 5 just rolled with it and produced the wallpaper with the skewed results anyway. You can download the wallpaper here: http://www.level5.co.jp/15th/vote/
I think what I love most about this is that they actually went with the airplane. The inanimate object from the Aero Porter games gets TOP BILLING on the poster. That's hilari

During a little debate as to which news station broadcasts less BS (BBC News or Fox News), I, like a good little TV License holder, sang the Beeb's praise and slagged off Fox by pointing at a screen-grab containing one of their hilariously deranged headlines.
Said headline was, actually, a photoshop job.
Guess who feels a bit of a moron?
The only thing that saves me from being a "total moron" is that Fox News has such a reputation already that I (and other, it would seem) saw the hoax as completely believable.

Argument 3 - GermansI'm back for my third argument! I hope you liked the last one and that I have atleast a few of you, still reading and supporting me!Argument 3 - Germans4 years ago in Personal More Like This
So this Argument I will call Germans, and I think most of you will understand what it's all about.
Many of these accusations Rammstein get for being Nazis, comes from that they simply are German.
According to lots of people around the world, Germans are still the most evil people in the world. I can't say there are NO Nazis left there, because there are of course. But the truth is there are LESS Nazis in Germany nowadays, than in any other country.
If you have ever seen the HBO series, Band of Brothers, you know this.
There is a man there, a veteran from the WW2 that says in the beginning of one episode: "We never got to know the Germans, maybe if we did we might've gotten to know that some of them, just like us maybe liked to fish or hunt. But we never did you know...'cause all we had to do was following orders. Just like them."
