Then what is this?

"And we all thought you were making one which you apparently did not intend to make."
I can't read.

My apologies, I thought you were referring to my first sentence.

No apology necessary. I'm just glad you wrote this post: now I don't have to go buy a new pair of glasses.

That's okay. I've had to beat myself over the head with a rolling pin before - times when I swore I didn't say something and someone posts it for me. I figure this probably happens to everyone at some point or another.

^ I always thought that was an angry waving a stick at someone icon, but your post is funny.

I actually think you're right about what kind of icon that is, but I've had to beat myself over the head with a rolling pin so many times that I identify with that.

No duplicitous reasons or anything. Melon's next post just happens to be #10,000, and I want to write something fairly....monumental for it. Since it took me over six years to reach 10,000 posts, logic dictates that I may never reach 20,000. But who knows. I never thought I'd reach 10,000 either.

Funny that you mention Melon and Ormus "getting into it." Many years ago, I threatened to argue with myself, where one side of me would be "liberal" and the other "conservative." Maybe I'll do that someday. It's quite a good mental exercise.

I must say, I quite enjoyed reading your arguments.

Hope you stick around FYM more often!

Why does logic dictate you won't make it to 20K? Are you going to die or something?

Like playing chess with yourself. I used to do that when I was a teenager, but I eventually gave up. It hurt too much.

Back to your regularly scheduled thread.

As I get older, I expect I'll have increasingly less time to write here, in conjunction with increasing responsibility. If it took me six years to approach 10,000 posts, I imagine that it would take another 10 or more to do it again...heh.

Well, just to make sure, I checked and it's a JPEG file, not a GIF file (meaning that it could have been a very subtle animated GIF that I hadn't noticed before). However, with it being a JPEG file, that means that it can't move.

I think you are all overlooking that this opposition is a good thing, bridging the divide between Muslim and Jew
Quote:
Jews and Muslims in Jerusalem have found common ground in their fierce opposition to a gay rights rally due to be held in the city this week.

Leaders from both faiths have united to denounce the parade, which has prompted nights of street protest by ultra-orthodox Jews, who regard homosexuality as an "abomination", and death threats against those taking part.

After Israeli police found and defused a bomb bearing the message "sodomites out", orders were given for 12,000 officers to deploy across Jerusalem during the march, which is planned for Friday. Last night, lawyers from both sides were wrangling at the High Court over whether the parade should be allowed to take place and, if so, where. With the court expected to convene another hearing today, it appeared that the parade would take place but at a new location near the parliament, a safe distance from orthodox neighbourhoods.

The city's Islamic leadership is opposed to the parade, with Tayseer Tamimi, the head of the Palestinian supreme council of Sharia litigation, leading Muslim opposition. "This march tries to destroy the moral and spiritual values for youths," he said. "All religions discredit gays because it is against the decent human nature created by God."

I remain adament that when believers start getting along then something very wrong will be done to the unbelievers.
