Singles still mattered but the LP was now the format king.

when old posts get commented upon

because essays are evergreen links, eh,. what blogs were before they became online magazines.

History and current events are rife with examples of one dominate religion or ethnic group stomping on the necks of a minority religion or ethnic group with the result being if not civil war, then prolonged violent outbursts, more suppression and the seemingly never ending cycle which basically stops progress and development in it’s tracks.

Except that I can think of two minority groups that are deemed at best second class citizens, who are limited in their participation and one of whom has active and vocal opposition in being included in basic rights.

there are two demographics who do not use voilence to advance their message.

Now, as she watched Clint Eastwood blasting off in the movie Space Cowboys, she realized that they were using the footage from her own launch.

“What would you do if I stood up in the movie theatre and said, ‘I’m on that shuttle!’” she whispered to Kelly.

The implication to the actors in attendance was clear: they could have their fun on the soundstage, but they needed people like Payette to actually do the job, even in the movies themselves.

When Shatner’s bio was read to the assembled crowd it noted that he had “boldly gone where few have gone before,” Payette raised her hand in mock confusion. Shatner turned to her and gestured good-naturedly, in an apparent admission of her superior space credentials.

play victim when not catered you. when someone does not behave as a stereotype they get treated as individuals. so why should I give you a nice person credit when you give me less than none?

What are you talking about? Credit for what? I am who I am. It has nothing to do with getting “credit”. Looking at your profile, I would imagine you are lesbian. Fine. I have gay people in my family.

no. I am looking for someone to interact with what I say instead of everyone being zero sum babies and thinking I am as bad as you. so I am also wondering why I am posting in a group I was invited to.

nina tryggvasona minute ago

so when you post what you think as if it has to do with what I said. like men do and then you are not catered too. you are a stereotype until you behave as an individual and treat others as you seek to be treated.
