    Wtf on many levels..

    - Not banning abortion is bad enough to get denied from church, gay sex isn't?
    - That you can identify a single person from Grindr data should be worrying, if you care about privacy.
    - So bishops who molest kids are reassigned/ covered up, but a bishop who has gay sex has to resign..
    Keep on keepin' the beat alive!

    Pretty sure the resignation is because of the hypocrisy.
    Hope is the denial of reality

My guess is there are multiple psychological and personality disorders, which prevent rational decision-making. She might be very good in some areas (as Steely mentions) but terrible in others.
    Loki, it's the Legal Conservatorship system that's being questioned...and whether the courts are actually "protecting" someone with mental illness, or if they're letting others use/exploit them for their own profit.

    There's a double standard here, particularly for women. Name one male Hollywood "star" with mental illness whose behaviors (and reproductive decisions) are dictated by a legal conservator/guardian....

    "How much is a little girl worth?"

    Simone Biles quoted her during congressional testimony about the multiple systemic failures that failed to protect young athletes from sexual abuse for decades. It's the same damn sad story for victims in the military and church groups.

    I've come to the conclusion that *men in power* don't really give a shit about anything but holding onto their power. And they're willing to overlook, minimize, or de-legitimize all sorts of abuse and exploitation, just to keep that power.

    I want to be wrong about that. I've tried for years to convince myself that it's just a "few bad apples", and that correlation doesn't mean causation. But at the same time, since men still dominate most spheres of power, it's hard not to blame most of our problems on mens' penchant for patriarchy.

    I've been having super weird and detailed dreams lately, but this is the first time it's included one of you. Last night, I dreamed that OG won $31.4 million dollars in a game of chance at Disney World - as far as I can remember, it was a weird combination of slots, dominoes, and yahtzee. I don't even know if you can gamble at Disney, but there you have it.

    Congrats, OG! Spend it wisely.

    lol, closest thing Disney had to gambling was the 4 story arcade called Disney Quest but they shut that down years ago.

    The down payment for my new place is coming from my current place (30% increase in 5 years) and crypto (60% in 1 month). We had our first open house last night and the agent said we should be expecting multiple offers from it and we have another open house today. Plan to take the best offer on Monday.

    Crazy part is that I saw this post while attempting to check my powerball tickets, so watch for an edit.

    Honestly I love the exterior color there, and the bar facing the kitchen window in the screened-in porch is also really cool! Hope you get a bidding war.

    Are you moving for more space? Maybe I'm too used to squatting in abandoned Berlin attic/converted servant quarters but it looks like a ton of space already.

    I currently have 7 people in a 4/2 @ 2100 sq/ft. I'm the only guy. 30 year old wood frame house.
    Moving into a 6/3 plus a flex room and 20x20 loft. 4 year old concrete block.

    We have space, but we all really want our own space.

    Okay that's a lot more people than I expected, and I agree the only ratio that really matters is the bathroom-to-human ratio
