For several days now, I?ve been in a running argument with an individual who goes by the name of ?On Lawn? over in the comments sections of the blog ran by anti-gay equality group National Organization for Marriage. In several comments here, here, and here, this person seems to imply that procreation, or at least the potential for procreation, is a requirement of marriage. I?ve tried several times to get this person to explain this concept but they keep brushing off the question calling it absurd. When I tried to point out that there is no link between marriage and procreation they came back with this.
Well, there shows the damage they want to do to the institution. If marriage can?t look equally at the interests of all involved in the practice of human mating, then you tell me what can.
Prehistoric humans didn?t marry before they mated, they just found a bush did it. When you look at the whole of human history, marriage is a relatively new creation, only being a few thousand years old. Our very existence proves that marriage is not a requirement or an essential element of the human mating process.
It’s Friday and it’s freakin colder than… well… something I can’t say in polite company. Temperatures are below 0 and all through there isn’t much of a breeze, the wind chills are a real killer. When hopped in the car to get it to warm up for the ride to work, it acted like I do when the alarm goes off and I hit the snooze button, repeatedly, for an hour. In the end however it did finally turn over.
I’ve had my new Dell Inpsiron Duo for about a week now and I’m loving it. I found out that it can recognize handwriting, Now if I just had a stylus that worked with a capacitive touch screen. It does have limitations, but that was pretty well expected from the beginning. It doesn’t make a very good gaming computer, but then honestly that’s not what I bought it for in the first place. It plays movies from Netflix and Amazon VOD great however. I did manage to log into World of Warcraft with it but I can’t really imagine playing WoW with any real competency with this computer. Again, I pretty much expected that from the beginning.
I bought it mainly as a writing tool, and as a work tool. And in those functions it has definitely worked great.
Well, that’s it for me today, I’m starting to sound like I’m writing a commercial for Dell, and that’s my cue to move on to other things this morning.
