I try to avoid god language when I talk -- but when I lose my temper or get startled into an exclamation, I do fall back on the old standbys, starting with "goddammit!" and rapidly ascending the scale until I get to "Jesus H motherfucking Christ on a popsicle stick!"
Wow--and I thought I was reaching the bottom (or actually, the pinnacle) when I uttered, "Jesus H. fucking Christ!  But adding 'motherfucker' and 'on a popsicle stick!' is genius. I LIKE it!
Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able?
Then he is not omnipotent,
Is he able but not willing?
Then whence cometh evil?
Is he neither able or willing?
Then why call him god?

The 'popsicle stick' part comes from my ex-partner.  He was creative that way.

Less creatively, I added the 'motherfucking'.  :D

Bake in the oven with the skin, (washed) wrapping in aluminum foil to retain moisture, and easier to peel. (the skin just rubs off)

The skin has all the nutrients ;-(

Of course.  There is no deity to care about words.  But churches get hit by lightening.  When has the American Atheist HQ been struck?

One of the churches my wife preached at, was hit by lightning.  But a few years after we left.  Went down the metal steeple, and into the kitchen where it did some burn damage.  Turns out, the church had a metal steeple because a few years earlier, one of the elderly ladies insisted that a church didn't look right without a steeple.

For many vegetables, yes.  But not most root crops.  They are the same skin to core.

Skin all the way down?  Are you fur on the inside as well as the outside?

I didn't say "skin all the way down".  Root crops, being all evolved stems and roots.  are mostly the same throughout though.  It is the fruits that are variable.  And "fruits" means any enlarged plant ovary.  Like beans and tomatoes.

Too much sexy.  Put it in the Adult section.  Next you will be telling me that plants not only have ovaries, they have other sexy stuff to, and believe in inter-species sex with bees ;-)

Yes, LOL.  Stop being so sensitive.  I am not insulting you.  I am playing with you.  Since we both keep cats, you should like that.  I like you, as a scratching post.

Well THAT is entirely different.  You think I am the scratching post and I think you are the poop outside the litter box.

And in any case, quantity doesn't mean quality.  If it's 2,000 likes out of 20,000 posts, that's only 10%.  If it were 2,000 likes out of 2,500 posts, that might be different.

I think what he is suggesting is that, because he gets likes elsewhere, they must mean something here.
