I made a thread about 2 years ago about giving up treatment for my brain tumour, well I stuck with it for another 18 months spending most of /015 in
hospital. I had two more brain surgeries and a course of radiotherapy. I made it long enough to see my niece born, which was the happiest day of...
Hello fellow ATS-ers,
I don't start threads often. I haven't posted much lately either. But I read often and have "met" some very kind, wise and supportive people here on
the site over these past years.
I hesitate to even post this, as it is very personal. Please be kind... or just move on and don't post....
I quit. Some fat old man, anonymous on the internet, has quit smoking.
Big ####ing deal.
But you know what? After almost 40 years of smoking, I'm pretty effing proud of myself. I no longer want to kill random people on the street. I
just went cold turkey. I want to be alive and well when my grandkids need to be...
Begin Short Rant.
This whole Mandela Effect thing has devolved into a circle jerk of people looking for bias confirmation.
"I thought this but everyone told me I was wrong so eff all those people I am from another dimension".

I and other have attempted to follow the new guidelines on posting that ATS has required for starting a new post by not post minimal amounts of info
but a complete explanation with the facts.
But the members who follow don't want to read the info posted that is required to start a post. They...
I'm currently playing rather badly against two ATS members on chess.com and wondered if anyone else fancied a game against me or others from ATS. br
This is the chance to destroy me on the chess battlefield so I would especially enjoy a challenge from members who I've crossed swords with on the

heres my story:
i used to LOVE debating religious people. I thought the God delusion was a masterpiece and I used to watch hours of videos mocking religions on
youtube and thinking "haw haw religious people are so dumb".
And then something happened that caused me to question my outlook on life. I had a dream that I met an old friend whom I hadnt seen in years...
Watch Christina Hoff Sommers, Milo Yiannopoulos, and Steven Crowder discuss topics including social justice, feminism, trigger warnings,

It's not a spur of the moment thing, it's something I've thought about for quite a while. Got married..got divorced. Got married again years later,
that lasted for about 20 years...got divorced. Been looking around for about a year now and can't find anyone I want to date and.... I just can't
bring myself to care.

Back in September 2010 Ian McLean started the original Acronym Game Thread. Thanks Ian - it's kept so many of us amused and out of real mischief. br

So near the Shed, down by the park

Only 1-2% of people are genius--the rest are of average intelligence. And above-average still has the word average in it. Unless you're in the 99th to
100th percentile of intelligence, then you have no business calling anyone stupid and certainly no business on any high horse.
People like saying that millennials are entitled, and I'm not...
I have on my desk the packaging from an air nail gun I bought the other day, as I was about to recycle it I noticed that it had a warning saying "keep

This question follows on from the “parable of the unjust judge”.

Her patience is rewarded when the judge...
I have noticed from time to time that people on ATS like to share their IQ with us as if we are going to be impressed. There are some that even have
it in their signature line. I realize this isn't always shared for vanities sake,...
