"I saw that too, Anna, and have to agree.  Why shorten your own exposure, to make a wider point .. that even less people will be aware of?  I think having an alternate lined up first would have made a much better point, as well as give a…"

"I always enjoy your insight, Kosh.  It always seems neutral to me, but you also seem to generate loud comments.  No matter - you've a way of explaining veneers by actions underneath, to me, and not just on politik.  Thanks! "

Profile Information

Bio
I am a mechanical bird. I fly, dive, and flutter about things, curious, ... yet -- I am but a machine. I am the product of the times I came into. All is mechanical. My clockwork works - exactly. You can see by the meter of my words that something is precise about me. I know not why; I am not the Originator of these things. They only come to me. They tick, or they whirr, or they may, by chance, chime. No matter - I hear, and respond to them. I myself am quite delighted by these Missives that come my way, and my dearest love is the language I came in with, English. It isn't the words themselves; more - it is the very capability of being able to iterate what I have been given to feel.

Oh.  I just realized that title is a bit of a double-entendre, but that may be what I mean.  I feel like I want to talk about the whole idea of legislating what people can/can't do with their bodies, but I don't know where TO do that.  Certainly not on Fb, that would only foist it at the few people I know there!  They didn't do it!! 

There are so many questions, and dead-end alleyways, I guess I just wonder why there is no counter-legislative push about all this hoop-dee-do…

TRINE

Two is a multiplier,

as life thrives by two, conjoined.

But thrice is the trine device of life;

as there is always a Third Element, that of choice.…

Welcome!


With any new site, we understand that finding your way around can be a bit daunting. To help you use our site, we have a few resources and tips, all of which can be found on pages under the Support  tab in your top menu bar. They are:

FAQ- here you can find some quick answers to general questions, questions about privacy and about site features.
Tips & Tricks - this is our forum where you can find tips on using the site, news about site changes and other information from the staff and other members.

Our Terms Of Service and Our Copyright Policy  can also be found under the Support tab.

You may also find additional help by going to chat and asking another member. Chat can be found in 2 place: There is a CHAT link in your top menu which will open chat in your browser.

The other option for opening chat is to use the small tabs at the bottom of most pages. The tab named "Opium Den" (our chat name) will open the in a small pop up window at the bottom of the screen. This window can also be resized or 'popped-out' and used as a separate window.

There is a "Members Online" tab on the bottom of your page too. This will show which other members are logged in (logged in does not mean they are active in the chat, simply they are logged in to the site). There is a small speaker icon which will allow you to adjust the chat beeps which many prefer to turn off or down when not actively chatting.

We have many excellent features and tools here. While it may seem overwhelming at first, the basics of posting and commenting are simple and before too long we hope you will feel comfortable and at home.

Bang around, explore, write, comment and most of all have fun!
