    Wow! I've run into quite a few political zealots lately, but nothing this extreme. I want this election to be OVER.

    I'm one of those people who sneeze in response to bright light. Sometimes when the sun comes out from behind the clouds, I'll sneeze seven or eight times in a row. It's a great feeling. Irregardless, when I am somewhere other than my home, I can usually prevent the execution of the sneeze mechanism.

    Also, it does seem odd when people say "bless you." I do not need the Lord's help to persevere after a sneeze.

    It also is odd to me when people say, "have a blessed day" as you're leaving or saying good bye.

    How are you supposed to respond to that one? Do you say "yeah, okay."? Or do you run with the religious theme?: "None of us can take the Lord's grace for granted. We can only hope."

    I often (jokingly) respond with, "you can't make me!"

    If I am trying to discourage someone from the whole "bless you" thing I always say, "Please. No pagan invocations for me."

    I get that, because there's never a bad time to take a dig at religion, and moments when people are simply trying to offer a pleasantry are actually the best opportunity to pick on it.

    Is it not rather presumptuous and Christo-centric to assume I would assume welcome such things? Also, as a godless socialist out to wage a war on Xtianity, I am programed to do such things. ;)

    Who the eff gets pulled over for a seat belt infraction?


    Hard to guarantee a trial by a jury of peers if your peers are too busy to volunteer for jury duty.

    I've always wanted to do it...but the only time I got called, I sat in a waiting room for a day or maybe two and then got sent home and told to not bother calling in (jury duty in MN is for a week plus a second week of "on-call" time).

    Christianity isn't the only religion that blesses people (though I understand the history of "bless you" is tied to Christianity). My point was just that I don't see any reason to have a clever anti-religion comeback in the first place. I understand that you don't want to be pushed around by religion, but "bless you" isn't exactly evangelizing. Why not just accept it as someone simply being polite, rather than take it as an opportunity to make sure everyone knows how clever and anti-god you are?

    Plus, your "socialist" argument falls flat. Everyone knows Christ was a socialist. Well, everyone except for the people who seem to think he was a fascist who'd want them to make the government take away all of our fun. :)


    Me. By a cop on foot. While sitting at a stoplight.

    I literally laughed at him while he was telling me why he'd stopped me.
