Twincal reports himself ready for duty.
Shall I focus on sharks?
No need to focus, but at your leisure
Doesn't matter what?
Okay, but since I've expanded shark folder recently I will post some, later we'll see what will happen...
Glad to see that, as always. I'm on phone right now but I guess that in a week or two ill return here on regular basis. Hope that everything is fine with you?
Look at her head, her uvula and throat are too far to the right
Damnit. That wouldn't be a hard fix though.
Oh, I don't know. I could complain about being sick and not getting called back by the companies I wanted.
But life is pretty dandy otherwise.
I stopped working while at uni, quality of life improved.
Sorry for slow posting, it's all by hand
I do hope that's nothing serious and you'll get better soon
>not getting called back by companies I wanted.
Their BIG mistake, I daresay.
And if life is otherwise dandy, I'm really glad to hear that!
I'm in this terrible middle where my grades are too good and they're afraid they wouldn't keep me after graduation.
How're things on your end?
Kinda tired of comic dumps, ordering carefully is butt-pain
>too good and they're afraid they wouldn't keep me after graduation.
Sometimes being good sucks. On my end everything is fine, during holidays I was able to practice in local court, that was a nice experience. Degree is fine, only the thought that due to my desired juridical or prosecutorial career I'll be a permanent student by the time I'm 30 makes me ill sometimes... And teaching my Dad bout ethics since he started a course. Nice feeling to teach a parent about something...
Just stopped in to say hi to Twincal then it's back to uni work.
And DA inquisition whenever I'm not doing that stuff.
How about yourself?
Ehh Just looking at the Day shift i suppose... Out side of that probably go out to the strip latter on tonight.
Permanent student past 30 here, I think it's finally
paying off. You'll make it, if you want to.
they're knockin at my door right now halp
>I'll be a permanent student by the time I'm 30 makes me ill sometimes
Yeah, that's scary.
Except for the implied gambling on the strip part.
I am not a man for gambling. I'll take going out with the buds though.
>Why are there these people that feel like every other living soul in the world HAS to accept what they believe, otherwise they should >be killed/crucified/outcasted/suffer for eternity in the afterlife?
Because that's what God told them, and you don't argue with God. If God says "believe in me or else spend eternity in hell," then who the fuck are you, to use your puny humanoid intellect -- a brain so small that it can't even conceive of 1% of the Lovecraftian aweful truth -- to try to talk God out of his ultimatum?
Now let's say you're a caring, loving person to whom God has told his message. You don't like what God has done, maybe you even hate him for it. You don't understand its seemingly infinite evil, but you also know that you'll never really understand why God has done this, and you just have to accept it. And the thing you have accepted is this: you believe it is a fact that if someone doesn't do what God demands, they will suffer infinitely. It's not something you have chosen; it is the reality imposed upon you.
Is it responsible, given this undesirable situation, to stick your head in the sand and pretend it doesn't exist? If some hippie says that he understands the universe better than God does, and that "Be good to one another," is a perfectly acceptable policy (and it's certainly a pleasant one!) does that make what the hippie says, be true? Or is it deceiving, taking the easy way out?
waaay too highbrow an issue to be an effective firebomb, friend
Might you be willing to commit a relatively minor atrocity, for the "greater good?" Isn't it really worth it, when you get right down to it, to torture people, put them on the rack or burn them alive, writhing in intense agony -- even doing it for a decade if only a person could actually burn that long without dying -- if it might result in that person doing the right thing? What is a few minutes, or even a century, of suffering, compared to the eternal timescales described in religious dogma? You might not personally have the stomach for it, but "rationally" (please don't explore this too closely ;-) you know that it's a good policy to break a few eggs to make that omelette.
Think about it: is there any conceivable thing, any possible evil, than any puny human can possibly commit with their tiny limited means and impotent nuclear weapons (or even planet-destroying Death Stars), that even compares slightly or is anywhere nearly in the same league, to the infinite eternal suffering that a person will endure if they are not saved?
Killing people? Geez, everyone dies eventually. The long-term question is how many people are going to be saved and enjoy the afterlife forever, versus how many people will be utterly destroyed forever or be tortured forever by the devil's minions.
I think that once a fundamentalist really accepts religious dogma -- if they really believe it -- their seemingly-cruel decisions aren't really all that cruel or evil. They are executing the best policies they can, given a rather nasty premise.
My question to mystics is: What causes you to believe that? What do you see, that the rest of us don't? How did God's message get into your head? That's what's really baffling, not the things that they do as a consequence once they have been given The Aweful Truth.
I dont gamble... I did it once I won ill n ever do it again.
Done organizing, here's a dump preview.
If popular request dictates that I not dump category 2, I understand.
Sure. Perpetuate Emperor Constantine's cultural takeover of western Europe. What an original thought.
I'm aware of that part, I decided to follow that path more than 10 years ago and I'm only wondering when, provided I don't mess sth up, I will receive my nomination to juridical or prosecutorial post...
At least I will do my best to be good judge, impartial and independent and that takes time... Still, after that period of stopgap, I will be able to support my family and fulfill my dream...
Requesting deer, my folder is painfully small!
Ah, good on you.
It's always a good thing.
My sister got some sort of position with the largest law firm in my state.
Should lead to a permanent position and partnership eventually, and keep her away from crappy criminal stuff.
This one knows.
say that to my face fucker, not online and see what happens
>crappy criminal stuff
I know what it means, was asked by the Police to help with one trivial case, don't want to see anything crime related anymore...
What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little fur? I'll have you know I
Keep in mind that when an honest lawyer defends a guilty person well, s/he is keeping the entire system honest. Prosecution is forced to always make a good case, which helps out innocent people later.
As far as I agree wholeheartedly with you, I also know that everyone deserves right to defense. Still, thanks to continental model of trial, fat chance that anyone guilty will evade punishment, since no juries to be convinced by nice talk of bullshit...
I'm out for today, take care!
