:confused:

Isn't quite as it seems?
What if all the world you think you know,
Is an elaborate dream?
And if you look at your reflection,
Is it all you want it to be?

When the cold wind of conformity is nipping at your nose, when some trendy new atrocity has brought you to your knees...

It looks like your nose has been nipped.  :tongue:

I ususally never allow myself to be shoehorned into such a broad category.

My avatar was a Christmas gift from another Moderator. I thought it might help people to see that I am not all serious. There are sections of the board where I do not crack any jokes and they might see me as a boor.

Are you saying that you don't celebrate Christmas? That must be very sad. The gifts, family, and friends gathering around to celebrate and love one another is my favorite time of year in some respects.

Cheers,

The hat is a symbol of a commercial christmas image.
I'm almost positive there are no laws against buddhists or jews wearing one
In fact I think I may have even [gasp] seen it before.
A red hat is no more christian than reindeer, christmas colours or the fuckin nintendo that your mom gave you last year.
I'm pretty sure christianity is about more than fashion sense.

EXACTLY

Only for straight white people though.
Everyone else gets coal, so they know they're going to burn in hell for putting their genitals in the wrong whole or not being created the way God wanted....

Insert an "I think" mentally in front of eveything I say that seems sketchy, because I certainly don't KNOW much. Also; feel free to yell at me.
