Low-maintenance woman from Southern Wisconsin.

Sandiai That's a rather personal question. OK, I'm typing into some sort of blog, of which I am only vaguely familiar.
1:25 AM Sandiai commented on What Can You Do to Broaden Your Worldview? Have Dinner with Your Muslim Neighbor.
@3 and @14 You know that you're horrible, right? I mean, that is your MO. So...people are just responding to that.
( God, rednecks are dumb.)

@14 and @15...or feed the trolls POISON.

@5, see, you just explained it better than he ever could.
11:18 PM yesterday Sandiai commented on EOD: Anthony Hamilton Wonders About a Billy Goat.
That was rather sweet and nice.
Also, whose billy goat* was it??

(*I'm going with uncapitalized for now. I just fell down a Google hole of trying to find out why a goat is called a "billy" at all and the origins of the name "Billy" for a goat; but I'm weird that way).

@11, I think the answer is 2 or 3 times. :-)

@12, Also, I pretty much "caught up" in my mid-college years. LOL

Oh yes to all aboves. Thank you. I so hated that one of my parents was "interested" in my sex life to such an extent (and I was so very shy), that I sort of downplayed my own sexuality. I was also sort of a late bloomer, and a little afraid of (young) men because of several incidents of harassment. So mom, please lay off. Your daughter is an adult now. Let her be herself, OK?

@2, or into the Lansing water supply. Or into the air. Or into trains and trucks and boats. Or into skyscrapers. Or into Tuna fish. Or into paint.

@1, yeah, Charles plays around with the definitions of words a lot...I guess it's "Pot Tuesday."

I too feel like consciousness, attention and intelligence are something very specific and special, but if Charles wants to call it just "purpose" I guess he can do that. It raises my hackles, but it's sort of fun, too. (Charles, you do know that panpsychists think that magnets "think" in the way you're describing?). We do know (scientifically, even) that the human mind plays tricks on itself...sees patterns where there are none...and sees outside influences on naturals processes just because we're built that way. Charles, I love you man, but seriously don't go down this particular rabbit hole.
