    What surprises me is that you've been through a lot in your life Terry and yet your such a clear intelligent rational thinker.

    Perhaps your life experiences absolved to be as such.

    For me:

    1 wife

    1 trueborn son

    1 stepdaughter

    6 different jobs



    Great aunt


    Grandfather (on mom's side)

    Grandmother (on dad's side, murdered by grandfather in early '60s, dad probably saw it happen)

    Low points:

    Attempted suicide in 1998 over rejection by girl

    Dated only 3 women, one of whom I never met in person, the other two were in two separate cults

    Becoming a walking ATM to a chronically unemployed woman, then losing my virginity to her at the age of 26

    Sleeping with my ex-girlfriend, then marrying her and linking myself to the cult forever

    Disfellowshipped in 2010 after wife read my e-mail

    Threw away 'Avatar' on Blu-ray after 'Avatar incident' with wife finding a scene offensive

    Elder gave us reclining chair, with instructions that I was not allowed to sit in it (Reclining Chair incident)

    Wife read my journal, tore pages out of it, threw wedding ring in my face

    Separated from wife in 2011; reunited one month later

    Wasting hours of my life on Transformers 2-3, 'The Time Machine' with Guy Pearce, 'Lockout' (again with Guy Pearce), most of 'Lost' without ever seeing the finale which will probably be a letdown, and lots of '80s cartoons that, as it turns out, are quite boring.

    High Points:

    Seeing the birth of my son

    Really good sex with my wife, back when we were doin' that

    Star Wars


    Star Trek

    Battlestar Galactica

    Comic books

    Nintendo in all its forms

    Nintendo Power magazine (R.I.P.)

    The Hunger Games

    Discovering freedom of mind for the first time

    Reading tons of books

    Amazon Kindle

    Going to movies by myself

    Discovering I could Google an actress's name and find pictures of her

    Natalie Portman--my gateway drug to Internet porn

    Winning a TV in a spelling bee

    Getting a VCR

    Having 10 movies and watching them 50 times (Here's lookin' at you 'Unbreakable', 'The Mummy Returns', 'Pokemon 2000: The Movie', 'Star Wars Trilogy: Special Edition', Star Wars: Episodes I-II, and 'Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker')

    Having a heck of a lot more than 10 movies and never being able to watch them all--even better

    Joining forces with my archnemesis Christoph and fighting the Watchtower at the Battle of the High Command

    ...Aw, yeah. TMI, baby. Way TMI...

    Thanks for honest and detailed responses!!

    What surprises me is that you've been through a lot in your life Terry and yet your such a clear intelligent rational thinker.

    Perhaps your life experiences absolved to be as such.

    Well, thanks. But, life kept smacking me in my delusions and waking me up and I kept resisting until I could resist no more.

    Once you give up mystical thinking and wishful thinking and delusions the only thing left is to try and be rational.

    So, I'm stuck in "default" position now:)

    Thanks for your transparency Terry, however, I dont use Facebook any more, as I consider it a spying machine.

    I Apologize for the paranoia.
