    My problem is when people bash or put others down for doing or living a different life that makes them happy and do conform to the others expectations of others there is no point of living in a grove all your life to conform to societies ways if people are so bothered by this then i suggest that those get a life and live life instead of being bored at others or disgusted at things that others do,,,,i stay very busy all year there is no off season for me just dedication and hard work after what I've been through i live everyday as if its my last and i will never and i mean NEVER regret it my girls see the prime example i set for them and follow to do the right thing on a daily basis good day all

    The Pope met with the College of Cardinals to discuss a proposal from Shimon Peres, the former leader of Israel. "Your holiness," said one of the Cardinals, "Mr. Peres wants to determine whether Jews or Catholics are superior, by challenging you to a golf match." The Pope was greatly disturbed, as he had never held a golf club in his life.

    "Not to worry," said the Cardinal, "we'll call America and talk to Jack Nicklaus. We'll make him a Cardinal, he can play Shimon Peres... We can't lose!" Everyone agreed it was a good idea. The call was made and, of course, Jack was honored and agreed to play.

    The day after the match, Nicklaus reported to the Vatican to inform the Pope of his success in the match. "I came in second, your Holiness," said Nicklaus.

    "Second?!!" exclaimed the surprised Pope. "You came in second to Shimon Peres?!!"

    "No," said Nicklaus, "second to Rabbi Woods."

    After his graduation from college, the son of a Spanish lawyer was considering his future. He went to his father and asked if he might be given a desk in the corner from which he could observe his father’s activities and be introduced to his father’s clients as a clerk. His observations would help him decide whether or not to become a lawyer. His father thought this was a great idea and immediately helped to set it up.

    The first client the next morning was a tenant farmer–a rough man with calloused hands who was dressed in workman’s clothing. He said,

    "Mr. Lawyer, I work for the Gonzales farm on the east side of town. For many years I have tended their crops and animals, including some cows. I have raised the cows, fed them and looked after them. And I was always given the understanding and the belief that I was the owner of these cows. Now Mr. Gonzales has died and his son has inherited the farm. He believes that since the cows were raised on his land and ate his hay, the cows are his. In short, we are in dispute over who owns the cows."

    The lawyer said, "Thank you. I have heard enough. I will take your case. Don't worry about the cows!"

    The next client to come in, a young and well-dressed young man, was obviously a landowner. He said, "My name is Gonzales and I own a farm on the east side of town. We have a tenant farmer who has worked for my family for many years, tending crops and the animals, including some cows. I believe the cows belong to me because they were raised on my land and were fed my hay. But the tenant farmer believes they are his because he raised them and cared for them. In short, we are in dispute over who owns the cows."

    The lawyer said, "Thank you. I have heard enough. I will take your case. Don't worry about the cows!"

    After the client left, the lawyer’s son could not help but express his concern. "Father, I know very little about the law, but it seems we have a very serious problem concerning these cows."

    "Don’t worry about the cows!" the lawyer said. "The cows will be ours!"

    We are all surrounded by the same deadly diseases. There is no escaping a Pandemic. It will find you until it either dose, or is "cured", or goes away on it's own, if said disease be natural and not made in a lab.
    Point being, one's bublle would have to be pretty small for it not to be filled with what fills the world these days.

    So small a bubble that it never encompassed the Viral Cancer Research Project began in Nazi Germany and continued with Congressional funding from the early 60s-late 70s.
    A RATHER SMALLISH BUBBLE WITH NO ROOM FOR THE 50,000 African chimps emperimented on...per year. This once secret program nearly sent the chimp into extinction.
    Of course when they ran out of african chimpanzees, the program began expirimenting on gay men from Manhattan. After AIDS broke-out, the program was cancelled. Or finished, if you understand.

    According to the CDC, 15% of gays have now aquired HIV, and HIV has now spread to 2% of US city dwelling citizens whom are heterose xual.
    The Nazi Viral Cancer Research Project described above was just as real as NASA obtaining rockets from captured nazis. The US didn't even have jet engine tech. until captured from nazis. Sheesh.
