I suspect all pumpkins would be anything but vegan, given the choice.

I once knew vegan medium/prostitute with a plant fetish who could only orgasm through photosynthesis.

Hello, Julia.
I'm Jeff but go by Jeffk to distinguish myself from Jeff 36. I was directed here by Jeff 36 after posting on Holocaust Controversies.
I'm a US citizen and I work in state government. My parents raised me as Roman Catholic but I left the church long ago. It (religion) never worked for me though I find religion fascinating. I'm spiritual in my own way, if nothing else God exists because we created it in our image, not the other way around.
My family continues to be deeply religious and I don't think they understand me. I think my beliefs made me far more tolerant of other faiths, I see the merits and flaws in all of the religions I've studied.
I'm passionate about history, it's what I read, especially military history in general and WW II history in particular.
A joke going around Moscow during The Great Terror:

The NKVD knocks on a door.
The inhabitants ask who it is.
“NKVD.”
“You’ve got the wrong apartment. The Communists are upstairs.”

Oh, I spend most of my time in the HD section.

G'day folks, I found that I liked being involved atheism after reading The God Delusion by Richard Dawkins. I came from a family in Australia where religion wasn't very important, so I like hearing about Christian beliefs and history.

I'm an ex-cop and was a Station Officer in the NSW Fire Brigades. Now just a semi-retired small business owner with an interest about religions and myths. Hope to contribute soon, as this seems like a fun place! :D

I've been wondering for many months now: why is this post pinned?

:hmm: I think it was a fora merge, or add-on, or something like that.

Ah. A dont-question-the-pin-The-pin-has-always-been-there type of thing. After the apocalypse there will be bugs and this pin.
