I'm considering a decent sized tattoo on my outer thigh (just above the knee) and about 8 inches by 5 inches, but am curious if anyone who has a tattoo in that area has any feedback? Did that area hurt more than other areas? Was the healing progress the same as, say, a smaller design on the arm?8 AnswersTattoos3 weeks ago

I love hearing about other people's tattoos, and why they got what they did. Also, did any of your ink every have an effect on your job?
I have 10, spread across my arms, chest, and neck. Never had a problem with jobs, and I've done everything from retail, to restaurant management, running my own successful bakery, and now I'm a public school teacher.7 AnswersTattoos6 months ago

My family started celebrations last night by going to church to hear my husband's grandfather sing the solo of "O Holy Night" in the church choir (the one time of year we go to church). We then came home and let each kid open one gift. Then packed off to bed.
Now I'm baking cinnamon rolls as our traditional morning food, and will wake the kids and hubby up for Christmas gift unwrapping, followed by watching a movie together (probably Miracle on 34th St, the kids' favorite), and then dinner with the grandparents this evening!7 AnswersReligion & Spirituality2 years ago
I'm a teacher at a middle/high alternative school. We've had a lot of issues with kids and cell phones. They are completely distracted by them, playing games, listening to music, and not paying attention in class.
We told them yesterday that starting on Monday they will be required to turn their cellphone in at the door in the morning, and will get it back at the end of the day. Needless to say, there was mass meltdown.
It's not like parents couldn't get in touch if they needed to, they could call the school and the kid will be brought to the phone.

Every liberal democracy has laws or codes against hate speech – except the United States. Should the United States protect hate speech? Does hate speech do more than just “offend” the people or groups it is directed against? Does hate speech have any value?8 AnswersPolitics4 years ago

I have 2 female rabbits, they have been cagemates for almost 2 years. But recently one of them started plucking fur the the other (top of head and on back). The other rabbit is now developing bald spots from this. Any idea why this is suddenly happening, and how to stop it?3 AnswersOther - Pets4 years ago
It is now just a 12 month deferral, instead of a lifetime ban.
I think it's a good step, but still not enough. After all, a gay man in a monogamous relationship can't donate unless he doesn't have sex with his partner for a year, but a promiscuous straight man with hundreds of sex partners a month can.13 AnswersPolitics5 years ago
There is a famous story told in Chasidic literature that addresses this very question. The Master teaches the student that God created everything in the world to be appreciated, since everything is here to teach us a lesson.
One clever student asks, "What lesson can we learn from atheists? Why did God create them?"
The Master responds, "God created atheists to teach us the most important lesson of them all - the lesson of true compassion. You see, when an atheist performs an act of charity, visits someone who is sick, helps someone in need, and cares for the world, he is not doing so because of some religious teaching. He does not believe that God commanded him to perform this act. In fact, he does not believe in God at all, so his acts are based on an inner sense of morality. And look at the kindness he can bestow upon others simply because he feels it to be right."
"This means," the Master continued, "that when someone reaches out to you for help, you should never say 'I pray that God will help you.' Instead for the moment, you should become an atheist, imagine that there is no God that can help, and say 'I will help you.'"19 AnswersReligion & Spirituality5 years ago

In 2014, football player Ray Rice was videotaped assaulting his (then) girlfriend. He was later convicted of 3rd degree domestic assault, suspended by the NFL, and ultimately fired by the Ravens.
Do you think the phenomenon of high domestic abuse rates in male orientated sports has anything to do with the over population of violence by men against women in the media? How about the culture in which males are raised (having to be "tough" and "in control" in order to be considered a "real man")? How do these ideas related to the Ray Rice case specifically?4 AnswersMedia & Journalism5 years ago
Why do all those "Christian" county clerks who are refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples disobey God's decree?
They claim they are refusing to issue marriage licenses, despite being ordered to do so because of their "religious convictions". Do they not realize that God commands that people listen to governing authorities?
Romans 13:1-2 "Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. Consequently, whoever rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves."14 AnswersReligion & Spirituality5 years ago
Trump has zero respect for the Constitution. If he was ever elected, he would immediately name himself King and try to take over this country as a dictator, and not a President.5 AnswersElections5 years ago
