Are you apart of a religious (or non-religious) minority where you live?

"Oh, wearisome condition of humanity,
Born under one law, to another bound;
Vainly begot, and yet forbidden vanity,
Created sick, commanded to be sound."
--Fulke Greville--

Oh, speaking of learning a different language, I am trying to learn some Japanese. I only know a little bit of Japanese so far, but it's a start.

I want to start off by doing fan-translations of Japanese video games and then move on to more professional translations later down the road.

I don't know. Texas ended the institution of marriage to try to prevent gay marriage. But then, there is the whole birthday Florida man meme.

Must be the heat.

Could be the combo of heat and humidity. But then, it must have always been the case--remember the Florida orange juice commercial lady (used that term loosely--she ended up being a cunt) Anita Bryant?  Very anti-gay and not afraid to let us know.  That was in the 70's I think.
Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able?<br />Then he is not omnipotent,<br />Is he able but not willing?<br />Then whence cometh evil?<br />Is he neither able or willing?<br />Then why call him god?
