Diana @ the unthinking housewife would rather young people commit suicide than embrace their talent.

First of all: Isn't suicide a mortal sin? Why would you wish it on someone? How is that non hypocritical?

Do they not have any compassion for people? (the answer is sadly no.) I can't stop reading her crazy, even though it makes me so angry.

Clearly Diana has been reading too much of the Stinking Lousewife's material.

I have no love for the "must make it to the top" worlds of either athletics or popular music and acting, and wish things were based more on talent. But, if people want to see "reality TV" or trainwrecks as talentless people destroy themselves, the world of entertainment will provide it. If we don't watch, they'll stop.

And, as far as I know, none of that applied to Amy Winehouse anyway, since she could sing movingly. I could be wrong, but I think her original appeal was due to her ability, not her addiction.

As for the talentless who want to make it big, Cole Porter said it better, and in a somewhat kinder way:

This. I thought it was a mortal sin that was supposed to damn you, or is this just a Catholic thing?

I've heard this debated...IME, the 'mortal sin' bit is a Catholic thing.

(Although I knew at least one protestant youth pastor who admitted he didn't think someone who committed suicide would go to hell necessarily but he told his young charges the opposite because he didnt want to encourage them toward suicide :doh: )

      So..my son is getting married at the beginning of March and I tried on dresses today. I need to lose weight. I'm about 60-70 pounds overweight and I absolutely have to. I'm not one to post statuses but I'm doing everything I can to hold myself accountable. I'm sitting here wanting to stuff my face and I know this isn't the answer. I can do this. I will be okay. I'm going to make myself check in regularly. Whether or not anyone sees this, I am going to be posting.

      Is anyone here from Moore County, NC?  I hope they catch the domestic terrorists that shot up the power substations.  All to stop a drag show!  Throw the fuckers in jail.

      What do people do in the Sonoran desert? I've hiked the hikes I wanted to do. Seems like all that is left is golf, shopping at chains that exist everywhere, and stuff I've done. Oh and eating. I can only eat so many times a day. It's too cold to rent a paddleboard or swim.

      First snow storm of the season hit today. It got windy tonight, and we lost power. Somehow this continues to be a shock to PSE. Why they refuse to upgrade the infrastructure or do something so that 10s of thousands of people don’t lose power and heat literally every time it’s windy, I do not understand. We live in the Pacific Northwest. It gets windy!

      Nebraska's new football coach is an evangelical bullshit artist who participates in "Man Up Ministries" conferences in the off season. Their motto is "Fighting for Biblical Manhood". Excuse me while I go vomit.

      Don't know I'd charge quite that much though.

      Long time no visit…
      COVID has finally caught up with me. Dad tested positive first, last Friday, then my mother, brother and I all tested positive today. Main symptom is feeling really really tired. Hopefully it doesn’t get much worse 🤞
