instead of engagement rings I've always liked the celtic betrothal tradition of the hand-fasting ceremony, which is still kept very much alive by the pa dutch, amish, mennonite, hutterite, and old order river brethern communities around me.

My hands are thin enough; they don't need to fast.

Hand fastening ceremonies are interesting, though.

I read this and thought "But who wouldn't want faster hands?" Then I reread it.

Also, we had a hand fastening ceremony at our wedding. It was a quick one, not very elaborate. Just made a rope with the wife and the officiant wrapped our hands with it while the ceremony went on.

Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky,
Seven for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone,
Nine for Mortal Men doomed to die,
One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.
One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them,
One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.

We should stop calling it the friendzone really. More like the ohgeezezone.

It appears you are correct, which is logical, in the "to make fast" sense. I'm more amused by my interpretation, though Razz

Reddit tries to shame a Sikh woman for not shaving, and she proceeds to be totally awesome.

I can't groan much harder without shattering stone

Neither can Fox's own Megyn Kelly, hardly the epitome of radical leftist feminazism.

Once scientist/science writer's take. Also, her ongoing series on male/female behavior in the animal kingdom is worth a read.

A succinct and well-worded summary/rebuttal of the general attitudes displayed in the video.

i just noticed - dobbs was deploring the loss of "traditionally male" bread-winner jobs like construction - you know, all those jobs that provided good salaries because they were unionized. wonder if he's ever thought that one through?

poor megyn kelly....she's being forced to acknowledge actual real-world scientific studies. she may have to leave fox.

This is undated, but the video is from this year.
