    We recently moved into a duplex. One Saturday morning I saw the neighbor getting into his car around 9:15 dressed in a suit and appeared to carry a bible. Not 100% he was a dub, but I changed my wi-fi name to "Satan."

    Hey - it's the little (rebellious) things.

    To me, doing anything with intent and them as the motivation,would be proof that they still had control over me. The last thing I did that would be considered rebellious was to throw out all my old literature. Throw is probably not the right word. Hurled....slammed...ripped and shreadded would more accurately describe what really happened.

  • Honesty

    Voted in every local, state and federal election.

    Donated whole blood on many occasions.

    Joined a church.

    Said the Pledge of Allegiance.

    Had good times with 'worldly' people and no one did drugs, drank alcohol or hit on members of the opposite or same sex.

    Listened to Contemporary Christian music.

    Gave the Watchtower god my middle finger.

    Got tattoos, celebrate birthdays and holidays, voted, got Bachellors in humanities and another in science, got puking drunk a few times, puffed on A cigarette, went to a Unitarian church service, got palms read, got fortunes read, seldom shave, am participating in a Hubble Space Telescope proposal to take data on a hot jupiter. The Holy Grail of exoplanet science being the quest to find extraterrestrial life, ergo, evidence of evolution.
