No I send the Goat around once a week and you just put your money in the satchel he carries.

amb 13th March 2012 01:13 AM

Although all your bank details can be forwarded directly to me by private message. I'll take care of that detail.

No, there's no plans for another TAMOz at this point. But the Australian Skeptics Convention will be in Canberra in November!

Canberra? Website says Melbourne?

Ketyk 13th March 2012 10:31 PM

Welcome back, kaz.

Quoting something from way back on Feb 27? I doubt he'll remember.

Arth is always around, though, He's everywhere it seems. Keep looking.

EgoInverse 14th March 2012 04:36 PM

Hello all! Pleased to have joined this forum. While I'm here, I hope to challenge myself and my views and expand my critical thinking skills. Goodness knows I desperately need to.

You see, my belief in woo tends to be cyclical: when I was young, I wanted to believe in all sorts of garbage. I quickly became disillusioned, and for quite a few years I adopted an atheistic, there-is-no-supernatural stance. Recently, my views began changing and I started to gain a more spiritual view of the world. And because I lacked a proper filter to critically judge woo, I ended up in quite an embarrassing incident. That incident lead me to start looking carefully at what views I was subscribing to.

Then I found this forum! It's exactly what I didn't know I was looking for- a place to critically discuss things that some people view as a matter of faith.

And I'm rambling. Sorry for the wordiness of this introduction post. In any case, I hope that I will enjoy my stay here! I can't say that I enjoy goat's milk, though, sorry if that's a problem.

Nasty Neil 14th March 2012 05:36 PM

Hello All,

While a FEW of you will like me, the odds are high many of you will not.

Got my nick name "Nasty Neil" from John Shensky, a good friend and an NCR Electronics Division co-worker. When I asked John why he had chosen it, he replied:

"It is because you are always telling the truth and most people do not like hearing the truth."

I can provide references from people I have known (some for over 50 years) who will attest I am one of the most truthful people they have ever known,

I'm a Agnostic Atheist Activist whose has been a Atheist for 68 of my 77 years and an Atheist Activist for over half a century.

I am a member of 3 Atheist groups "American Atheists," "Atheists United" and the "Military Association of Atheists & Freethinkers".

And I was a 20 year member of FFRF until they recently both LIED to me and refused to print a letter to the editor.

I have lived in more places, (3 countries 10 states, and 20 cities,) as well as at higher altitudes (14,300 feet) & in a "cloud forest" As well as closer to the Atlantic (within 100 ft) and the Pacific. (within 20 ft,)

Had many more professions (a few are life guard, deep sea diver, paratrooper, manufacturing supervisor for NCR TRW and Magnavox and an industrial engineer for XEROX)

And as I've also done more varied types of things than most do, I am much more experienced as well as knowledgeable than are most my age. Traveled on or in more types of trains, ships, boats, cars trucks and aircraft than most.

I read at nearly double the speed (with high comprehension) of most college grads. Plus, my tested listening skills are four times better than those of nearly all others.

I also have a "Gifted Level' IQ. One which tests prove I use nearly double as effectively as most use theirs.

(( Pres. "the Liar" Obama, or as I call him ODUMA, proves that intelligence is like a man's penis as it is not how much you have, rather it how well you use it. And if ODUMA makes love as poorly as he thinks, I pity his wife! ))

So combining my experience, intelligence and the fact I normally research things to assure I have more than sufficient facts to back me up, the odds of my being logically, or factually proven wrong on any thing I comment on are low.

Last, aside from serving my country for nearly ten years, I've have repeatedly put my physical well being and my life on the line for others. I did so for Black Civil Rights more than a few times and each of the eight times I have been able to stop a crime being committed against others. (I stopped one two weeks ago at age 77 and had I been faster, it would have been two crimes in the last two weeks.)

So, I sure ain't no "Chicken Hawk"

Like Chris Hitchens, Tanny Bruce and many other Very Experienced & very Knowledgeable Atheists, I sure ain't NO "Liberal" neither!

Roadtoad 14th March 2012 06:37 PM

Well, Neil, I'd say welcome, but with an intro like that, perhaps that's premature. Just be sure to tell the Colonel how you'd like your meat, thank him for the goat's milk, and do have a mintie. And pat the goat on the head, would you? It would be appreciated.

Welcome Welcome Wecome I am going to milk a Goat right now, so you can have a real fresh glass of Goats milk. I do not like obama either I call him Obozo or sometimes just bozo.

Nasty Neil 15th March 2012 12:13 AM

Thanks road toad!

And hello colonel!

Rather than clogging this thread up. Please eme at religionsucks@webtv.net and clue me in on goats milk and your dislike of oduma.

Me, for over fifteen years, i've drinking daily and when needed, using topically a natural healing "miracle" which is so good, it sill amazes me! And while it is grown in the tropics all around the world and has been effectively used for over 5,000
years to effectivley treat and or cure over ninty
different illness and injuries, most have never heard of it.

Which amazes me as the company i get mine from had sales which were twice what microsofts sales were and they did it in a years less time! It is called "noni juice" and i love it!!!






Thanks

SusanB-M1 15th March 2012 01:27 AM

Nasty Neil

Catching up on the Welcome thread, I read your OP. I noticed your age, so have to point out, somewhat huffily, :D that this means you have relegated me to a place one lower than I was before on the oldest poster list! However, I suppose I can still say a genuine welcome!:)

amb 15th March 2012 01:41 AM

Perhaps a new thread is in order. Let's call it the "Old Farts " thread. By the way Nasty, In case you don't like the goats milk, you can get a Millers Draft right there across from the stable. Welcome buddy. :)

Nasty Neil 15th March 2012 06:27 PM

Thanks AMB,

PLEASE Excuse any splling errors)

Only as I am an Alcoholic, I have keep my distance from any and all booze. While I tried to quit drinking for over 11 years, and trying about every thing I could think of, find. nothing did it UNTIL I went to Shick Shadle Hospital Aversion program. In ten days I no longer drank. In fact My last one was Aug. 23, 1983.

An Old Farts Forum? Naw. then we could not educate the young. (who so very very badly need it.)

HELLO SusanB-M1,

THANKS for the Welcome!

I am sorry about stealing your being the oldest one status. I would ask you to Please Forgive only I had no more control over my date of birth than I do looking at women. I do wish the ladies would not get mad at us for doing so as we have no choice as it IS the way we are wired., (Well, at least those of us who were born being Hetrosexuals.)

While I can't tap dance I do love to dance and at one times was good enough at it so much younger ladies would ask me to dance with them. (And my being a dirty old man, I loved it.)

(( Can you tell why John started calling me "Nasty Neil"? :-) ))

As me, being me, may get kicked out of this forum as I have others, I am most happy to receive emails from any who wish to email me, THANK YOU!

Please, Take Care!!!

"Nasty Neil"

In my case I still think like a 20 year old, but but my body tells me different.

Hi all. Glad to add another skeptic forum to the collection.

Interests include science, politics, general debunking, and religion. You may guess by the name that I am not a theist.

I usually enjoy civil polite conversation. That said ridicule is sometimes the appropriate response to the ridiculous or the dishonest.

COLONEL 18th March 2012 07:07 PM

Oh I know that ,but I was wondering if AMB borrowed :rolleyes: them from my stash that I had for the next BBQ or did he go buy some for the NewB's. You can get Roo meet here in the states, I was getting them in Albany NY. but because of a law in NY they had to stop selling it last year and now that it is legal to sell it so they are selling it again, Some prices are, loins are $17.00 a pound and steaks are $14.00 a pound The place is called adventures in food trading. http://www.adventureinfood.com/ :D I like them cooked over an apple wood fire,better then charcoal or the gas grill. I just ordered a few steaks and a loin today :)

Actually, I know - but it is a fun word - and tasty treat (I am a bit partial to things that taste even better dipped in a bit of mustard!)! For those who don't, a nice recipe and pic: http://www.wikimama.com/recipe/Bitterballen

fuelair 19th March 2012 06:31 PM

Note: to be official (by my standards) the beef actually should be veal, I love the leanness of it - was impressed by the job done in the video on fat removal of the beef. I do use a bit more pepper as well as chipotle or habanero sauce in the mustard - but I do that for corned beef and pastrami also.

Roo steaks must be cooked medium rare at a max, otherwise meat gets too tough.

When it comes to red meat I say wipe it's nose and it's butt and put it on the table. I cook Emu Med. rare too. anything other then that is dry and I like to see the juice run out of my steaks :D

COLONEL 20th March 2012 06:27 AM

Good morning NewB's and everyone else .When I got up it was 41* now 8:45 it is 50* they say 70's today and 80's by Thursday. I am going shopping this morning and then Doolin ( My Black Lab ) and I have to take one of our fire trucks to get fuled up. as our Fire dept.meeting was getting over last night,the pagers went off ,it seems this 15-17 year old boy ??? Got mad at his parents and went out side and poured 15 gallons of gas around the house, down the drive way and across the road and then tried to light it. Where he lit it, started that area on fire, but thank god it did not cross the road to the house . After we washed everything down the last thing we did was cover everything with foam . when I was leaving I noticed the young lad sitting in the cruiser in hand cuffs.

The claim is that if you're doing venison, you grease up a skillet, toss the meat onto the hot surface, then catch it on the plate at the other side.

Not that I can afford venison... :(

Well, that's all well and good, since those steel bumpers will tenderize the meat, but where do you hang the meat to bleed it out? And is your spousal unit as enthusiastic about the venison as you are? (I keep thinking that would make one hell of a mess in the sleeper.)

First post from a new guy, saying hello.

HELLO! :D

And hey, about getting venison with an IH Eagle...that cen get the boss a little peeved. One of the guys I work with did that last year...nailed a doe at about 65MPH. Did $5500 damage to the tractor. The tractor was brand new with about 3000 miles on it.

See? That's why you should drive KENWORTHS!

Welcome. Do tell the Colonel, Jarlaxle, how you want your meat, and smile as you accept the goat's milk. (And do pat the goat as you pass. There are ....problems.... if you don't.)

I was lucky, it seems I was always bob tailing home when it happened all I did was call the police they would give me a permit for the deer I would dress it out on the side of the road and then tie it across the back take it home and cut it up and put it in the freezer My wife and kids like it and I made a lot of jerky and my daughters would take it back to collage with them to snack on

Jarlaxle, are you the same Jarlaxle who used occasionally to post on the now nearly moribund "Stiff's SUV Tyme?"

If so, welcome. I'm mjc.

If not, welcome anyway of course.
