@Ticket For EpicAsked why don't they teach philosophy anymore?

 

The simplest answer is probably no one wanted to study it. There does seem to be a movement away from the art and science of critical thinking towards the 'correct way to think'. I studied to be a lawyer before I came out as an engineer. As such I was exposed to a fair of philosophy and the rat of reasoning. I have always found that my legal training was by far the important to my career in wireless engineering. Yes one needed to understand the math and science. However, identifying and resolving problems is the essence of a legal education. There is substantial value in the traditional liberal arts education.

 

I will admit that philosophy was difficult and a struggle to understands there is not the right answer only better or worse answers

Well today was a wonderful day. Finished work 2 hrs early and only minimal bs to deal with lol. Finishing early also means I get to start my four day weekend early! 
 

The best news of all, the first day of Pride month also marks 365 glorious days of being ME! I’ll have to post a comparison picture a little later.

"Correct thinking" reminds me of the novel 1984. Miranda, I completely agree with everything you said. Learning how to think critically is indeed the most important of education.

 

I also think it's interesting to note that virtually all totalitarian regimes--from despotism to fascism to communism all adopt "correct thinking," "group thinking," or something similar as a central part of their core ideologies. Just sayin'...

Good morning!

 

I joke that I used to emote like Spock and on HRT I emote like Shatner. 

I am not sure I emote like either Spock or Shatner/Kirk, but I am liking the new Star Trek with Christopher Pike. It is like the original pilot, only better!

Well sometimes I emote like Dr McCoy and just complain a lot.

Good morning 

 

I became very frustrated with our lender last night.  They insist that information they need must be in a specific format .  It’s from the IRS website.  I follow their link to the letter, all it does is take me to what I already sent them.  
 

@Jandi there wasn’t anything wrong with the word I used when taken in context.  Changing it to the P word changes the meaning completely.  I suppose I should have used Helm-o-meter.  But sometimes my brain doesn’t come up with the right word.   In any event, to the censorship team, I was using cockpit as in where it Captain and first officer control a plane or sailboat.  Not as a vulgar term for a body part.

 

anyway. Please change it to Helm-o-meter.  Thank you!

Been enjoying the heck out of the new show. The characters are fun, it's not just focusing on part of the crew and Nurse Chapel... If I'm being honest, the way that character is written absolutely turns me on. My wife thinks I'm nuts, but she probably thought that before.

 

Hugs!

Americans don't seem concerned with using mythology to heal themselves anymore—hatred is such a weak crutch.

I do like the new Star Trek. I cannot wait till the next Episode is available. Oh, wait. It is Thursday and new ones come out Thursdays. 😁  Nurse Chapel is very nice on the eyes.

 

As for you being nuts. We have known that for years. Love ya sweetie.

 

@Willow While your -CENSORED- is paperwork. Mine is just finding a house in our approval range. The two we saw we were out bid on. the couple that are. are two small and/or dumps. I'm sure VA wouldn't go for.

 

Hus,

On the eyes? I guess, I'm demi though. What got me going is her character's slightly off-kilter mad science personality. She can experiment on me ANYTIME.

I've been curious to see that new Star Trek, but I still haven't gotten around to the third season of Discovery yet. I've assumed Discovery leads into Strange New Worlds, or is there not really any need to catch up with Discovery before starting the new one?

@DavieIn my opinion, we no longer hold our self accountable for what we believe and why we believe it. One can only have an open mind, if one is willing and capable of changing their beliefs. Political ideology is moving closer to a religious belief such that no amount of evidence will change one's belief. It is also becoming more extreme on both the right and the left. The most extreme voices are the most vocal and demonize ANY dissent as disinformation or antiscience or morally evil. They speak only for their benefit and not for others. It has become increasingly difficult to take a position that does not fit with extremist position. Why can't we argue our positions on the merit anymore?

 

@Marcie JensenExtreme politics whether from the left or the right end up in the same totalitarian space.

cycling back to the nails thread, dipped is the way to go.  I just get them trimmed pretty short and a french nail finish.  they hold up to just about anything. Of course, you have to get them filled in about every 3-4 weeks. 

 

I'm all in on the new star trek!

 

Happy Pride everyone.

@miz mirandaI could not agree more. Thought that was clear in my post. Sorry for the lack of clarity. I'm almost certain I included both Nazis and fascists as well as communists. If I did not, my apologies.

I'm in St. Petersburg FL for the week.  They really know how to do Pride here.  Flags and banners everywhere and events publicized all over.  Here's a nighttime look of the Museum of Fine Art building all lit up from our balcony.

No need to catch up on Discovery. Star Trek, Brave New Worlds. Is set before Star Trek, TOS. Capt. Christopher Pick is in Command.

Good morning 

 

I hope everyone has plans for their weekend.  Yes Kymmie I know that excludes you, your weekend comes early.

 

well, I guess I finally managed to meet the bank’s requirements.  They haven’t said anything more and they did have me review a new closing statement.  Of course it was wrong.  They failed to include a thousand dollar deposit I paid to the builder and they are charging me for the first year home owners insurance when I already paid for it, another $1100.  They were supplied proof of both of those payments.  Hey bank, money doesn’t grow on trees you know!

 

@KymmieL sorry you are having so much trouble matching your requirements and not getting out bid.  It’s a tough market out there.  Not enough supply to meet the demand.  Any chance of buying a piece of land and putting your own place on it?  Like a manufactured home?  Our building a small home designed to be expanded over time?


I'm not going to group tonight.  It’s predicted to be stormy and I’ve got other things to take care of in preparation to moving off the boat and into our home.  It’s going to be a busy week.

 

my wife is having a bad reaction to some medication.  She stopped taking it as soon as we realized it but our Dr is away and we don’t want to go to the ER and sit there for 8 hours all for naught.

 

we went to the beach yesterday.  When we were leaving a young man asked if we would like him to pull our beach cart through the sand.  Admittedly it can be tough.  I politely declined.  Then a second slightly older person asked to help us.  This time I thought why not? After all he is just being polite to two woman so I replied very gratefully. And thanked him several times.  After we got to the car my wife asked, aren’t you embarrassed to accept help from a man?  My response was that that was why I had politely declined the first young man, and had done so the previous times it was offered.  But had realized that if they had seen a 73 year old man pulling it they may have offered the help so why not accept the offer.  And I was grateful as it’s hard getting through the soft dry sand.

 

they just don’t make beach cards with wheels wide enough to ride on top of the sand.  You have to get a fishing cart that doesn’t fold up if you want that.  The wheels on them are a foot in diameter and 6 inches wide.  Made out of welded aluminum and cost around $600 verses $150.

 

we bought a new beach umbrella this one is really well made and should last a long time.

 

guess I’m done for today. Times a wasting.  
 

let me know your thoughts on accepting help.

 

Willow

Wow, @JustineM ! It's not so much the change in your appearance, but your demeanor - you look so much happier & natural.

Love love love Strange New Worlds! When the talk of Spock started, my thought was how much I like the Spock of Discovery & SNW. He seems so sweet and disarming - in a Vulcan way, of course. 

 

I also really like Erica Ortegas, the helmsperson. Lol, probably because her personality and look seem rather nonbinary to me. Gender envy? 😏

If you've seen Discovery seasons 1 & 2, then you have all the context you need to segue to Strange New Worlds. It's soo good!

Just got back from Speech Therapy. Got the snot beat out of me by Mother Nature. I I figured a nice day so why not ride. The ride over to Cheyenne was beautiful and Halfway home was too. Then the defecation hit the rotary oscillator. I've ridden in the ran which is no big deal. But hail is another story. Even though it was small it still stung when I got hit. I rode though it.

 

Hugs,

      I can understand that, I find it hard to make friends too. But don't worry about telling people you're transitioning. Just concentrate on making one good friend. Then when the time is right for you, you'll confide in each other. Only my closest friends know I'm ftm and I transitioned 10 years ago. It's no bodies business but yours, until you feel comfortable to share. If you don't mind me asking, where are you from? Haha yes I used to fal asleep too. The app that I use starts with very small meditations of about 5 minutes and slowly builds up. Do you have any close friends that you can talk to and vent? Apart from us obviously 😁

      You're looking good. I have a couple of sports bras, but have only worn them outside under a tank top. I feel very confident about being in public all the time. I don't like dressing male - feels embarrassing. Kinda flipped the table from a year ago. Anyway, I have to give in to the no-tank sports bra look while the weather is still too warm.
    • stveee
      Since I have started looking for starter bras now, I was trying on my bralettes/sports bras and realized how affirming they were and after seeing other women wearing sportsbras out all summer, I felt it was my time too and paired with my Old Navy black joggers. So I took a aerobic walk at one of our State Parks then stopped in a local fusion place to get dinner after. Only thing is these types of bras squish what little I have going to begin with. It looks like my top is going to take some time just to get something modest. But it boosted my confidence and felt great.

      Hi @Sol, I read The Fountainhead years ago, as well as Atlas Shrugged. As I look back, I have a couple of thoughts. First, saying that I liked them doesn't seem to do both justice. They are extremely thought provoking books and should probably be required reading. Second, the themes she put forth in both works are particularly apt today in view of current events. Both are well woth the reading.

      @Sol Thank you for your answer, friend! I wanted to see what others thought of. I remember having a different book of a different author, reading the first couple of pages, then becoming scared and never finishing it. And that was 8 years ago!
    • Sol
      I read the Fountainhead, @JJ Orange! Granted, I was in like seventh grade when I read it, but yeah I liked it! It's an odd piece with Ayn Rand's unique style, but overall pretty good. There are dubious elements around the mid-late chapters so be on the lookout for that. Nothing explicit, but it was definitely enough to make me do more than one double take.
    • Teri Anne
      I'm not to comfy showing a lot of skin because of being fat but sometimes if its really hot out I have to to stay cool. I love short tops, or crop top Ts on other people but not on me so much. Tank tops  and camisole tops just roll up if I pull them down  which is so annoying.  
    • Sol
      I've been looking at immigrating to Canada (as the US is a flaming pothole and Canada seems better on several levels. And yes, I know it's not perfect) so I'll see how many gender clinics are in the area I want to move to.  As for dressing and living as my target gender, that's really what I've been trying to do for the past year on my own. Granted, I'm not moving in any big social circles but college is here and I've been looking at getting a job next year so that'll be good practice.

      Hi Helen! I started out where you are, and I can only give glowing recommendations for TransPulse.  Questioning your gender identity is pretty overwhelming and scary, but I can offer a bit of advice that helped me.  You don't have to have it all figured out in a short time period. And it's okay to try out multiple different identities to find one (or more!) that you resonate with. And, as always, there's no shame in asking questions!  So, welcome to TransPulse, and I wish you all the best on your gender journey!
