Changing Your Mind
OpposingOpposum comments on Feb 9, 2018:
Absolutely. I change my mind when given new evidence on a regular basis. I think it's dangerous not to.

OpposingOpposum comments on Feb 9, 2018:
This is an outrage! It's only a matter of time before they escalate to making human omelettes.

OpposingOpposum comments on Feb 8, 2018:
Yes it is a delightful change. I quit tinder when I received a video of a guy pleasuring himself @7 am. Just... What was he thinking???

OpposingOpposum comments on Feb 8, 2018:
Two hunters went out deer hunting one day. They were out all day,didn't see a single damn deer. They started heading back finally and one of them(Joe Bob) began feeling some stomach trouble. He told the other guy(Darryl) to go ahead and he'd catch him up. Well Darryl doesn't get far before he sees a deer. He shoots the deer, field dresses it and takes it to the truck. He notices Joe Bob isn't back yet and goes looking for him. Darryl finds Joe Bob passed out on one side of a log and the "products" of his stomach on the other. Well Darryl gets an evil idea. He goes back and collects the deer guts, picks Joe Bob up and scoots them under him. Then Darryl goes back to the truck and waits and waits and waits. Finally Joe Bob walks up. He's white,shaking,sweating,looks like hell. Darryl says "you OK?" Joe Bob says " you'll never believe what happened. I shit my guts out but by the grace of God and with the help of the two fingers(holds up first two fingers of left hand) I got them all back in again!"

Ah, you're missing the point. Places like this allow us to avoid that pesky "life" thing.
Transgender and Bathrooms
OpposingOpposum comments on Feb 8, 2018:
I'm fairly certain it's simply a hold over from America's Protestant beginnings.
Glad to be here. Hope to make a ton of friends and who knows maybe a "soul"mate gag gag choke lol
OpposingOpposum comments on Feb 8, 2018:
Lol how about sole mates? You know, someone you can swap shoes with.
Did you ever have a best friend? What earned them the title?
OpposingOpposum comments on Feb 8, 2018:
I've had/have a handful. They're the people I find myself talking about anything and everything with, people you're better for knowing,the kind of people you can call to bail you out of jail. ;)

OpposingOpposum comments on Feb 7, 2018:
Very restful IMO. I know a lady who's nearly addicted to having surgery. She's had sleep issues for decades and says it's the only time she ever feels rested. :(
What do you see as the most important benefit of this site?
OpposingOpposum comments on Feb 7, 2018:
I really enjoy the interaction with a bunch of smart,thoughtful people. So many different concepts, well thought out solutions and really thought provoking questions.
For those who don't care I apologise for the post, however, I would like to thank many of you for ...
OpposingOpposum comments on Feb 7, 2018:
Nice to hear a success story. All the best to you two.

Trump Outcomes
OpposingOpposum comments on Feb 7, 2018:
Well his election to the presidency brought all the Nazis,racists and sexists out in force and now they're easily identifiable. Used to be they hid their vile philosophies.
Dating "Types"
OpposingOpposum comments on Feb 7, 2018:
I'm attracted to nerdy, creative guys and a sardonic sense of humor is a big plus. I attract older men(in their 60s usually) and guys who are completely inappropriate for me.

OpposingOpposum comments on Feb 7, 2018:
Yes! Thank you.
Does having a friend with benefits hinder you from finding the relationship that you truly want?
OpposingOpposum comments on Feb 7, 2018:
Just to play devil's advocate: I think having a FWB takes a bit of the desperation out of the situation. If you're getting all your needs met you're less likely to jump into something unsuitable just because it presents itself.

OpposingOpposum comments on Feb 7, 2018:
I am so sorry for your loss. Grieving is the price we pay for having wonderful people in our lives. Have an internet hug.

How do you justify suffering?
What's your talent(s)?
OpposingOpposum comments on Feb 7, 2018:
I can draw a bit, write reasonably well, I'm a convincing speaker and I kill it in the gym. :)
Best way to live life generally?
OpposingOpposum comments on Feb 7, 2018:
I think it depends entirely on who you are and what your idea of a good life is. When I was learning to drive, my instructor said" focus on where you're going and the mechanics will fall into place". I've always thought that was pretty good advice all around.

OpposingOpposum comments on Feb 7, 2018:
I work on a beach and I feel the same way at night when everyone is gone. It's so peaceful and numinous.
Do you remember where you were when the Challenger exploded?
OpposingOpposum comments on Feb 7, 2018:
I was in 2nd grade. The whole school piled outside to see the Challenger go up.(this was in Florida) most of the kids didn't understand what we saw. Some of the teachers started crying and we were all hurried inside. I didn't understand it until my mother explained what happened when I got home.
Are you a simple creature?
OpposingOpposum comments on Feb 7, 2018:
Not even kind of. Sometimes even I can't keep up with all the things I'm thinking at once.
USA=5% Global Pop. 25% Prison Pop. How to Reduce Our Mass Incarceration Problem
OpposingOpposum comments on Feb 6, 2018:
Don't forget that this is institutionalized slavery. These people are imprisoned then coerced to work for incredibly low wages. You want to know why we have this problem? Follow the money.

OpposingOpposum comments on Feb 4, 2018:
Hi. I have been struggling with something similar and I was lucky enough to make a friend who's helped me grow a lot lately. Start by spending more time with people you already know and like. It's hard to start. Genuinely listen to them and try to focus on the things you appreciate about them. Then find some strangers and do the same thing. It's something I've been practicing for Little bit now and I find I'm suddenly connecting with friends,old and new, in a deeper way. It's tough and you have to "fake it till you make it" at first but it's truly worth it.
Let's play a game, my fellow heathens! See how many points you can rack up per the sinner sign! I ...

Post amazing questions about sex of course!

OpposingOpposum comments on Feb 1, 2018:
Honesty is the best policy, I think. Sharing how you used to dress your hamsters up and attempt to make them ride tiny trikes might be best left for later on down the road however.

OpposingOpposum comments on Jan 31, 2018:
Yes. Almost any kind of exercise works but yoga is best for me.
Just wondering what people studied in school/college and if that played a role in confirming or ...
OpposingOpposum comments on Jan 31, 2018:
My intro to anthropology class and the professor in particular,were really influential to me. I'd been raised in a religious setting and the concept that "bad thoughts" were natural and universal to humanity blew my mind. It's when I finally got that what you DO is what matters not the urges and thoughts that come and go. Thanks professor Buenonno,wherever you are.
Anyone ever get the feeling you're going to be forever alone? I often get the feeling that if ...
OpposingOpposum comments on Jan 31, 2018:
Absolutely. I'm more than a little convinced that I'm just a forever alone type. At nearly forty I'm pretty sure I would have made/found something that worked for me by now. :(
Are you a fixer?
OpposingOpposum comments on Jan 31, 2018:
Yep definitely a fixer. It's what I do with people I care about. I try not to be too overwhelming with it but sometimes I'm just like "the solution is literally RIGHT THERE" lol.
I don't mean to go on a tangent here, but…

Are the Millenials right and we judge them too harshly?
OpposingOpposum comments on Jan 30, 2018:
In a word yes
Women out here saying they want a 50 shades of gray sex life yet can’t even handle a finger in the...
OpposingOpposum comments on Jan 30, 2018:
Dude if you meet a woman who says 50 shades is some sort of ideal for her,run fast and run far. BDSM,when practiced as it should be is cool and all but that nonsense is full out abuse and just gross.
Just found this on Reddit and I think I'm going to have a stroke from pure rage.
OpposingOpposum comments on Jan 30, 2018:
Among the things that anger me about this ,the major one is that "Jesus" is actually all about whether or not you CHOOSE to follow him. Free will is a major point of the theology. So not only is this jackass a rape apologist, they obviously do not understand the main points of the fucking religion they so "devoutly" espouse. They need a wake up call, maybe with a shovel to the face.
How do you feel about Christians? Do you love them, hate them, or just don't care about them? Do ...
OpposingOpposum comments on Jan 30, 2018:
It's like anything else. The religion is what you make of it. Your ideas on morality and religion dont tell me much about the world but they tell a lot about who you are.
Anyone here into backpacking/hiking?

OpposingOpposum comments on Jan 29, 2018:
Idk. In my case I'm convinced I'm either way uglier than I think I am or possibly smell bad. All my guy friends are always telling me how great I am yet the dates do not line up @ my door.

Single, divorced, widowed...why does society place such importance on these titles? Have you ever ...
OpposingOpposum comments on Jan 27, 2018:
People are just mammals when you come down to it. Most actions are simply instinct. The women are uncomfortable because you may be a threat to their marriages and the men are uncomfortable because you may have murdered your husband for doing the stupid stuff men do. ;)
How often do you pay attention to your neighbors?
OpposingOpposum comments on Jan 25, 2018:
My neighbors are pretty awesome actually. Our kids run together in a pack and we all get together and help one another with various tasks and such. The neighbors on the corner are always up for a beer and a chat. I feel pretty lucky in that department.
Online dating just doesn't provide my usual dosage of rejection.

Generation Gap Do you see your generation as better, stronger, tougher than the one after or ...
OpposingOpposum comments on Jan 23, 2018:
As a gen x-er I hear people complain about millenals a lot . I find them sensitive,hard working and creative,as a general rule. They're facing all sorts of challenges previous generations did not. I think there's also the nostalgia effect coming into play. We tend to remember our youth as better than it really was.
Are Immigrants Ruining America?
OpposingOpposum comments on Jan 23, 2018:
Most of the immigrants I meet are intelligent,hardworking and impressively motivated. Judging from my experience, they're a pretty positive influence.
What’s your tragic flaw?
OpposingOpposum comments on Jan 19, 2018:
Being too trusting lol." Oh Joe's a nice guy,he's just got a harmless obsession with serial killers....."
Most ppl don’t want to hear this, but real relationship that’s last involve a lot of ...
OpposingOpposum comments on Jan 19, 2018:
Very true. Anyone who gets close enough to matter to you is going to hurt you at some point,even if it's just by dying. I think the real question when deciding to commit or not is "does this person hurt me on purpose? Do they make an effort to avoid repeating the mistake?"
An important issue that needs to be addressed. Personally, I am tired of and ANGRY about ...
OpposingOpposum comments on Jan 9, 2018:

OpposingOpposum comments on Jan 4, 2018:

Climate change deniers...this is the final straw!

OpposingOpposum comments on Nov 27, 2017:
I think language without curse words is like cooking without spice. The right amount,well placed,gives your conversation flavor. I will agree it's easy to over do sometimes though.

OpposingOpposum comments on Nov 27, 2017:
Yes! Myth cycles and hero tales are such a fascinating glimpse into how our minds process the world around us. If you give a human a few certainties we will create an elabo
So many people on here seem to want a new religion to believe in. My question is why? Why do you ...
OpposingOpposum comments on Nov 23, 2017:
I think it's something about the way our brains are wired. It's the same principle behind the question "if you don't believe in God,what keeps you from commiting horrible acts?" People are trained from a young age to look to "higher authorities" for answers. Teachers,parents,mentors. I think this gets translated to a conscious or unconscious expectation of an "ultimate authority figure" as we become adults.
Tired of our government being run by radical Evangelicals.
OpposingOpposum comments on Nov 23, 2017:
Yes! How on earth do such ignorant people have this much power in our society. It's mind boggling.
