Re: THE MAACA DAILY NEWS! Your daily read about YOU,the members!

for me the overriding sentiment in your exposition is is that you have a desire to share and help others. Of all the philosophies I have explored, the non-conformist stances I have taken, and the searching I have done, that one idea has grounded and directed me. Meaning is derived by what you can gi...

Re: THE MAACA DAILY NEWS! Your daily read about YOU,the members!

You know those interview questions where they ask you to tell about one of your weaknesses and you try to find one that is also a strength. I think you just highlighted one of mine: I have no reservations about sounding like a moron. As I babble on endlessly never worrying about those strangers and ...

Re: THE MAACA DAILY NEWS! Your daily read about YOU,the members!

When things aren’t going quite the way you’d like them to, it’s often the result of not asking yourself the right questions. Some questions are hard to confront because you’re afraid you won’t get the answer you want, others because you really don’t want to know the answer. But the best things in li...

I still play ice hockey in my middle years so I can vouch that youth can kill you after a certain age...... or at least the recovery becomes longer and more painful.

Re: THE MAACA DAILY NEWS! Your daily read about YOU,the members!

When we are young life enthralls us with possibilities. It is not knowing what we can and can't accomplish that gives us optimism. It is the other end of ignorance is bliss. We can not know what we don't even know we don't know. As we make choices we inevitably need to give up other possibilities, a...

Re: Observations from a Stool

For those too impatient to sift through the prose - the salient takeaways are as follows: 1)We live in a superficial, consumerist, wasteful society. 2) The past is being ignored and the future looks bleak (recurring theme as Rob descends to darkness) 3) We are thriving for growth in an environment w...

When Vladimir Tarasoff turned to see Chloe vacantly looking at nothing while still thinking of even less, he lamented that meaning had been repurposed, and work had been re-engineered.

I believe Rob has mischaracterized my focused powerful energy. In reality it is an electrical field that turns out lights and blows many electrical systems I come in contact with.

Vladimir is creepy,
He started paying me visits at home.
Sometimes he just hangs out on the couch for hours.......
The kids are a bit freaked out but I understand where he is coming from.

I hope he retires to Florida at the end of all this.

Re: MPL NIGHT - OCTOBER 24TH AT THE MONTREAL PINBALL SHOP

Visiting a church, synagog , mosque can be enlightening and uplifting but if you want to get truly close to God you go to the Vatican , the Wailing wall in Jerusalem , or Mecca.

Rob is mistaking the time estimates as an attempt to impose accountability to his artistic science.

It is in fact the opposite; It is my understanding that I d...
