    Do you eat breakfast?

    Yes. If I don't eat soon after I wakeup I don't feel right all day. I usually eat pretty healthy and that means, to me, eating on a regular basis so that you aren't starving when you do eat.

    Afraid of Friday the 13th?

    I never could figure out what the big deal was over Friday The 13th. If 13 is so unlucky then why not worry about Thursday the 13th or Sunday the 13th. It is like people panicking over the number 666. If its not on the palm of someones hand or on their forehead then why worry about it. A number...

    Friendship And Exes

    We are friends with most of our exes and our exes are friends with each other. I remember amazing my friends at work with my exes and my spouses exes coming by just to chat. The animosity we feel towards are exes are more often a matter of social programming than anything else. It is part of...

    That is really cute. I can see my youngest telling a teacher just that.

    What is your concept on the after-life?

    Mr. Praline: 'E's not pinin'! 'E's passed on! This human is no more! He has ceased to be! 'E's expired ...! 'E's a stiff! Bereft of life, 'e rests in peace! If you hadn't nailed 'im to the perch 'e'd be pushing up the daisies! 'Is metabolic processes are now 'istory! 'E's off the twig! 'E's...

    On the contrary. A great many people who are atheist started out as believers or were raised in believing families. I was one of those. I was raised Southern Baptist, but when I noticed the hypocrisy of those around me I changed my religion. I spent a great deal of time during the next 20 years...

    Do You Believe In Karma?

    In a way. I think that your actions draw a certain kind of person to you. If you attract positive people they will support you. If you attract negative people they will destroy you. Eventually, you will be surrounded by what you breed. I know which ones I would prefer to be around.

    How do you relax or have fun?

    I am surprised that no one has mentioned sex. Other than that I have to say reading and designing for fun on the computer. I love piddling with my CAD programs and putting effort into space advocacy to relax.

    Do you believe in the story of Adam & Eve?

    If I believed the standard biblical account then I have to say the whole thing was a setup by god. If god is omnipotent and omniscient he already knew what the result would be. If he knew what the result would be, and then did it any way, then the result was what he wanted. In other words, he...

    Do you believe in the story of Adam & Eve?

    Actually, evolution does give an explanation of the development of primates. They, like all life, evolved from less complex forms based upon environmental forces. Primates are simply another adaptation to the environment. Evolution does not concern itself with the origin of life. Only what...

    The secret to a lasting marriage.

    Communications and honesty. The most important thing is remembering that your spouse isn't property or any sort. You can control who they talk to, care about and want to spend time with. As soon as you start treating them like property your relationship is done.

    The Apple Myth

    If god is omniscient and omnipotent then the Garden of Eden situation was a setup. Humans couldn't win.

    Are We In For Another Round of Recession?

    The entire system is at a bad spot. We can't prioritize our spending. Our infrastructure is falling apart and it is only a matter of time before something major happens. This is not based on some doomsday prediction from some leader. It is based on a thorough analysis of the current state of the...

    I have a question about looking for a new job.

    You have to approach the situation with strategy. Most applications allow you to select whether you want them to contact your current employer. I usually select no. In most situations they don't need to contact your current employer until they get further along the selection process. Once they...

    Do You Think You're In The Right Profession?

    No, but I am fixing that. I start engineering school in the fall and I am really looking forward to it. I have a degree in computer science, but it isn't my passion. Space. Space is my passion. I can't wait to be a "rocket scientist" after years of putting it off.

    Tips on drinking more water

    Definitely something I have a problem with. It never seems to quench my thirst no matter how much I drink. I have been drinking more lately, but it doesn't seem to really have an effect on my thirst. A glass of tea will take it down really quick, but I need 2-3 times as much water as I do...

    Is your spouse your best friend?

    How long have you been married? If you don't communicate then the chances are it won't be long. If you don't tell her the truth about things eventually it will come back to bite you. You are not the only one who needs to make plans. How can your wife make plans if she doesn't know what is going on?

    Smile A Lot

    I would much rather a person be honest than hide behind a smile. If you are having a bad time and you insist on smiling then your just lying to yourself and others. It isn't the smile that makes things better. Its the work that goes with the smile that does.

    I am an atheist and proud to be one. I don't have a problem with believers until they start trying to dictate their beliefs as anything other than a belief and a belief without any rational basis. When religious believers start trying to use their religion to justify oppression and unreality...
