    Well that's probably just as ironic as the examples in that song. I think I pipped you by about 30 seconds.

    Site Maintenance 22nd January

    I've put an annoucement up, but I thought I'd post a thread too as we can update it as more information comes in. **** Our glorious and benevolent overlord Ben Mansill has informed us that there will be site maintenance undertaken on 22nd of January. We do not have exact times or duration as yet, however it is expected to take place mid-morning for a few hours at this point. The site may appear to be up and available, however new posts will not be allowed until it is complete. The mods will post more information as it comes available, however please be aware. *****

    Red Dead Redemption 2 - My thoughts

    I'm enjoying it on Xbox. I've got a few on my playtime rotation right now. Red Dead Redemption 2, State of Decay 2 and Dishonored 2 are all getting good play. All really good games for very different reasons. All recommended highly.
  7. Actually I believe people were punished for claiming the earth went around the sun and not the other way around. Not sure if that was the church alone tho.

    Christmas Board Games

    Iberia is really fun, very different take on pandemic in many ways. Splendor is one of my all time favorite games. Spice rush ii haven't tried yet. It's on the wish list tho. Coup I've always heard was good, but haven't played. QueenDomino is really good. Betrayal legacy looks ok, but I haven't heard all that great things about Betrayal so not sure. Interested in how that one goes.

    circumcision

    I appreciate your tact here. Yes, it's close to me, however I hope you know me well enough to know that I respect other people's beliefs and opinions, even if I don't share them, enough to be able to argue without taking offence. My idea of a "justified" circumcision is one that is medically advised. That's it. Full stop. If *medically* the opinion is that the benefits outweigh the risks, then it's justified. My sister did get medical opinion, from a rural practice that understood the situation. She is also an RN (now a CN) and has a good understanding herself of the risks, however still sought doctor's advice. And that was to proceed with the procedure. As I mentioned, my own son is not circumcised. I didn't see a need as my situation is different. It is still a choice - even when medically advised. But then, everything ultimately comes down to choice. The bottom line is that as a parent you try to do what you think is best. You will get it wrong sometimes, but by seeking advice and weighing up the factors, you have to do what you feel is the best thing. In this case, she felt it was best. I'm not going to say it was or it wasn't, or that I was "better" for making a different choice. I'm just trying to show a situation where there is a differing line of thought to the black and white "it's wrong or it's right".

    circumcision

    There are VERY valid reasons. My sister had constant UTI's for years before her husband was circumcised (as an adult). He had UTIs and multiple infections in very sensitive places. She didn't want her son to go through what he did, especially if he chose to stay on the land as an adult. It was an informed, medically relevant decision. Which is very valid.

    circumcision

    Not always. As I mentioned, my sister is in a working cattle farm. They often go for days while mustering with minimal water for washing. Her husband had to be done as adult to address the issues it caused. That wasn't pretty. In the city that's generally true. In the country, not always.

    circumcision

    It's personal choice so shouldn't be illegal. There are some VERY good clinical reasons for circumcision. My sister's son is circumcised due to her living on a working cattle farm. They go bush regularly and so they cannot keep the hygiene levels to what would be considered normal. So the medical advice was to circumcise to prevent infections. So she did. Without a medical reason however, I see no reason for it. And religious reasons shouldn't be considered reasons. To make it illegal would be actually causing harm. EDIT: personally I wouldn't do it except for the above reasons. My son is not circumcised as i didn't see a need.

    The Atomicans Discord

    I've jumped on and ChildofChaos has put up his hand to give Smadge a hand with the setup stuff (he's been using Discord for a while now). For anyone nostalgic for the old IRC days, it should be fun. I doubt it will be as busy as it got back then though... Hopefully we can look at some discord events in future as well if people are interested. coooooooooooool

    Some great reads

    Discworld is only full of ludicrous humor on the surface. Underneath, it's actually full of biting social commentary (especially about English social politics, however most of it can be related to many countries worldwide) and human psychology. It's also a commentary on many socio-political areas and cultural (and pop-culture) oddities and treasures. Pratchett takes aim at everything from the Catholic Church, Hollywood, Rock music, Postal service, Banking/Finance, Railways, Asian Culture and Australia to War, Peace, Death and life itself. He often highlights the absurdities of human beings and human society while showing all the good stuff too. My favourite discworld is Feet of Clay where Pratchett asks "Who puts the words in your head". That sat me back on my heels and made me really think. I then went back and re-read many of the earlier books and realised just how deep they go. My current reading is nowhere near as philosophical or deep. I'm working my way through the Nate Temple series by Shayne Silvers (kinda reminds me of the Dresden Files meets James Bond). I'm also studying ITSM related texts (Problem and Change mainly) for work. Oh - and I have a copy of the whole Maze Runner series in real paper books sitting near my bed waiting for me.
