Happy Winter Solstice
« on: December 21, 2018, 01:32:59 AM »
May all my atheists friends have a very Happy Winter Solstice.  It is based on a natural event.  It IS the actual reason for the season and for all the fake copycat religious holidays, after all.

I decorated the house in blue LED lights, put a wreath and a big bold red ribbons on the front door, and attached cuttings from my holly trees on the front steps and mailbox post.

I enjoy this day for the knowledge that the days will grow longer.  I enjoy this day knowing that Spring is coming and planting season will begin soon.

May all my friends here have a Wonderful New Year...

Yes.  But observing an essentially pagan holiday, who should we sacrifice?

Thx Cave. for your wishes.

I'm glad to have the solstice to celebrate, otherwise I'd be completely bereft of a holiday! I hope you all are having as good a day as am I!

Thank you, Soldier.  74h of 60,000?  Damn good!  Even spectacular.  I understand that.  I took the US Civil Service Exam and scored at the 99th percentile in 2 categories in 6 subjects.  It got me a temp job, but that was all I needed.  The Division Director offerred me a permanent one after 4 weeks, which led to a career and I loved it all!

The starting opportunity is the important thing.

May your test results be equally rewarding...

When anyone does well on a general test, I'll applaud the person.  I think general intelligence is more useful than specific intelligence, "generally".  Obviously, if you want to build a bridge you need specific intelligence. But the first bridges came from generally smart people.  Specialization comes later when society can support it.
