I own a car now!



On 29th October I officially bought the biggest thing I have ever bought. My car! (Obviously I'm not able to pay for it, so thanks Grandpa/Family!) The car is already in Germany, so they dealer might get it around the 15th November and once they have cleaned, sorted out the official stuff and put on the winter tires I should get it around the 19th. I already have my license plate (in Germany you can either get a random number, or pay for one you want). My initials and four numbers, my birthday and the one from my dad. It looks like "S - XY - 1234". 

I had to get the option with the sat-nav and the better radio (DAB) because the model without it would have a delivery date of March 2019 in the colour I wanted. 

The car is made in Japan. Which I think is totally cool. A real Japanese car. Now the third one in our family. To bust the myth that we all drive around in German cars. Nope, you pay so much more for so much less. For real, for example a Volkswagen with the same stuff in it as my Jazz would cost at least 3.000€ more. And everything else, like changing tires or service is also more expensive. 

So the last wait period has begun! The only thing I have or rather my Dad has to do is figure out the insurance stuff. The insurance runs on my Mum because it is cheaper that way. Oh, and pay once the car is here. 💸

      Hi everyone!

      I have been lurking here for awhile, but finally got the nerve to make an account.  I was raised conservative Christian (and I still am), but not fundamentalist (thank goodness... no one in my family would've survived that!).  One of my more-fundie friends informed me of the Duggars when we were about fifteen and I could NOT believe that someone had 19 kids.  Insane.  

      Fast forward a few years and I'm researching parenting in preparation for getting married (eternally grateful that did not work out).  I found Erika Schupe and, after her blog was closed and I searched her name again, found FJ.  I've been lurking since then (2017?).  

      Truthfully, I don't know how I feel about Christian fundamentalism, as I know some families who live that way who are perfectly normal and fine in my opinion . . . and then I see people like the Duggars or other "non-major" families and I just shake my head.

      Enough about that, though -- here are some things about me!

      I have ADHD, so I way over-do it when introducing myself. 😅

      I've played piano for 13 years and I'm currently a music & psychology major at a local university.

      I'm looking to enter an MS or MA in Counseling program when I graduate.  I want to be a Licensed Professional Counselor someday.

      I'm interested in learning more and maybe even chiming in sometimes.  I'm not super outgoing, so I tend to be way more of a lurker, but maybe you guys will get me out of my shell . . .

      Edit to correct "17 kids" to 19 kids, because Josie is older than I thought.

      Oh, FFS, Gary - really?


      Even for Gary and his ilk, this is so mind-bogglingly stupid, childish and soaked in the stinking piss of conspiracy theory that it challenges belief.

      The fact that your life, and the lives of those around you, matter, is the entire fucking point to wearing a mask, you suspicious cretins.

      Man these morons want to think they're important. "We're a threat to the narrative and must be silenced", FFS. If they wanted to silence you it would have been done already, and no one would have known. 

      Is it wrong that I kind of hope they find themselves unable to post to Facebook because the 4G network is down?

      And what led John III to confess these attractions to Daniel recently?   John III is 30 years old. He's been in positions of trust with minor boys as an adult and had this obsession for most of his life. Why come out about it now -- was there a triggering event? 

      The Wartburg Watch discussed at length pedophiles who are aware of their attractions but do not physically act on them:  NOMAP = Non Offending Minor Attracted Person

      Is the Volunteer at John Ortberg’s Menlo Church a NOMAP (Non-Offending Minor Attracted Person) and What Does This Mean in the Long Run?

      Yes, it's possible that John III is a NOMAP, but without doing due diligence, alerting the church body, and interviewing parents and children with whom John III had close contact (including overnight trips away), there's no way to know. 

      Also, there was something in the tweet thread or elsewhere that the parents feared  John III might commit suicide if he were outed by Daniel, but the phrasing was ambiguous if the suicide might occur as a result of the humiliation of being outed or the prospect of the loss of companionship of minor boys. 

      I have heard of " MAPs " , and "NoMAPs"  , mentioned on a couple YouTube channels .  So if you want to go down that rabbit hole , here is a list of videos decrying this trend .
