"It's your life. You don't know how long it's going to be, but it has a bad ending. You have to move forward. As soon as you can figure out what that is." -- Don Draper
I get it now. You don't drink beer because it tastes good. You drink for the social benefit of not having your frontal lobe over think things. The reptilian brain is an useful guide when it comes to navigating the terrain of primal instinct and even basic human interaction.
Beer... it's awesome
I've dropped the ball guys, only because I've just realized the game has changed. Certain of our number, the post/ex/anti mo brigade, think the desire for "sin" is not a major factor as to why people leave the church. Maybe they're right. Maybe they're missing out on a lot of fun. How bout this though? Fuck the thought police. "Sin" is a tool of control invented to underpin a slave morality. I can happily exist without maintaining the standards of an organization whose prime concern is ten percent of my income. Once ties have been severed, why continue hanging myself? Perhaps "sinning" wasn't the primary catalyst for my disaffection, but goddamn if it sure as hell hasn't made me satisfied with my decision.
My mother is thrilled.
