    Celebrating birthdays is bad but celebrating the "birthday" of a marriage is okay. Stupid double standard. All the arguments they use "against" birthdays apply equally to wedding anniversaries.

    hey brothers, when a sister bends over and shows some clevage or such, what did you do? be a good dubby and look away? ... i often wondered...

    One of my favorite chores at the hall was handling the roving microphones for the WT study and other Q&A parts. You got to stand up in the aisle while everyone else was seated. I got to look down many an open blouse in those days...

    don't wear sheer fabrics, even if you have clothing underneath, sheer fabric is evocative of being naked!;P

    There is still an orchestra? I thought it was done away with way back when with the first "kingdom records"...>

    highdose - a good brother will tell another brother to look also so that they can have two witnesses as proof the sister is a jezebel influence and trying to lure them away. they will report this to the elders who will inquire as to what was seen and if so, how much. then the sister will be dragged in and run through the ringer for it. and this is the sister who is 90 years old. the young sisters they stop at the part when they get the second brother to look.
