ok guys, here it is.
i read the "north vs. south" thread last week and promised to post this to see how many people here actually understand it.
it'll probably really confuse all of you, unless you're from newfoundland or know a newfoundlander to ask about it, so i'll be sure to explain some of them after i get a few responses..

ok, so maybe i should've asked this a long time ago, but i'm a little slow sometimes.
my apologies for being uneducated in this particular area.
hey, i'm still learning, that's why i'm here.. i've seen a lot of references to mosaic law here on the board, but i'm a little unclear as to what it is, what it says, what it means, and who it applies to.

i think there's been a thread on this before, but i figured i'd ask again.. for all of the ubms out there, why is it that we love witnesses??
what is it about them that we find so attractive??
why are we putting ourselves through this mess when we know full-well that there are lots of non-jws out there who would be better for us??.

hehehe, this must be a common thing on tv lately, i've been seeing a lot of people mentioning this here on the board.. i'm watching "two and a half men" right now, and in the pre-credits intro part, two of the main characters were talking, and one of them was bragging about the great sex he'd had the night before, and there was a knock on the door.. "hello brother, we're here to tell you about the good news!!".
the character invites them in to tell them about his nocturnal adventures.. i don't know if they were supposed to be mormons or jehovah's witnesses, but they certainly reminded me of jws with their white shirts and ties with the books in hand, and i loved how they looked absolutely mortified with the other character started bragging about sex.. is it just me or are mormons/jws turning up at the butt of jokes a lot on tv lately??.

ok, so in my efforts to get some research done and learn more about the wts rather than relying solely on everyone else here for help, i decided to download the 2005 wt library to do my own searches and such.
after all, how else would a non-jw like myself have access to past publications and such??
and i'm dying of curiosity here, i want to do some of my own research, just to see what i can come up with.. so i download the iso file and then i don't know what to do with it.. i tried downloading an iso-burning tool, but that won't work for me.

ok, i know the notion of pagan symbolism has been beaten to death on this board, but i still have a question about the whole concept.. so, the wts bans pagan elements.
we can see that in their arguments against christmas and christmas decorations, and other similar things.
they forbid the use of anything with pagan origins.

ok, so today is the first day of lent (which is painfully obvious to me because i've chosen to give up my favourite snacks for lent and right now, i have a really bad craving for doritos), and it got me to thinking, once again, about wts doctrine and the whole banning of holidays thing that they have going on.. i've read the reasons behind banning things like birthdays, christmas, halloween, mother's and father's day and national holidays like canada day and independence day, but i have yet to read anything about lent and easter.. so, what's the line of reasoning behind the banning of lent and easter??
and i don't mean easter as in chocolate bunnies and easter eggs and all of that, i mean easter as a religious celebration of the resurrection of christ.
after all, jws have the memorial of the crucifixion, don't they??

edit: i changed the subject of this thread, just to be more specific and get more attention.. .

digitalfokus has a thread going for how old you actually are, but my question is, how old do you feel??.
you don't have to say how old you are, just how old you feel (and maybe whether that's younger or older than you are), and i'd like to know why you feel that age.
i'm just curious because personally, i don't feel my age and i was wondering how many of my fellow jwders don't feel their age.. i'll start:.

... are wondering which jwders you're harbouring a secret crush on.
ok guys, time to 'fess up, we want to know which members you have a crush on.
c'mon, don't be shy!!.
