    There's this part of northern Michigan called Yoopers.  Been through there once.  Saw several pasty shops.  Went into one that was recommended.  Man, talk about good pastys!  To die for!
    My dad's side are yoopers (Ishpeming) which is why I grew up on them.  Grandma made them homemade.

    Interesting show that goes along with this topic.  I watched the episode last night on the Jehovah Witlessness and their cover up of child molestation within the group.

    A cruel twist of fate: born in North America... but born into a Jehovah's Witness family.

    My aunt was one for a period of time... so my young cousins were subjected to the dreary existence demanded by that cult.

    I work with a JW. I have to say she's pretty weird. Of course, that could have nothing to do with her being a JW... she might have been a weird Atheist or Buddhist or Jew too, lol.

    I was taking public transit in Detroit to a concert and there were all these JW's on the bus ... the venues were next to each other, as soon as you got off the bus all you could smell was weed and BBQ and lots of loud music ... I often wondered if any JW's crossed over to the other side ... LOL.

    I have a vivid memory of my Dad chasing one off with a crow bar because he wouldn't stop trying to talk to my Dad while he was working the the garage.  One of the funnier things I ever saw as a child.

    Please don't judge ... it was a Jimmy Buffet concert.  And I can attest that Jimmy Buffet fan can party with the best of them.  I was there more for John Fogerty.  But Jimmy Buffet was very good ... 

    I've also attended Nascar races in the past ... LOL.

    I saw this story earlier.  He already has three private jets.

    Unfortunately there are brainwashed lunatics out there that will give this clown money towards his jet.

    My mother in law ... she would fall for this hit.  I think she gives 10% to her church, she goes to bible study and she really believes in Noah's ark (I kid you not) ... she is a holy roller from hell ... I almost gave her a heart attack when I told her "you'll be taking the same dirt nap us heathens will be taking, and its a long cold one", "that why I going with cremation"...

    I normally wouldn't have said anything, but sometimes you got to interject your beliefs...

    my father in law is a Knight of Columbus (probably gives more than 10%, but that's just conjecture), but he would laugh at the idea of this.  so would my frail and naive little mother in law, who is 80 and is in the Catholic Women's League and has two sisters that are nuns.

    A good friend of mine in high school was a Jehovah's Witness.  He was really into Bon Jovi.  We called him Jon Bon Jehovi.

  • Systematic pedophilia: 300 priests over 70 years in Pennsylvania abuse more than 1000 documented children (with 1000s more undocumented cases suspected).

    Church officials cover up the abuse to protect their business interests.

    Just on Monday I discovered my 6 year old niece being indoctrinated in Catholic culthood knows that my wife and I "don't go to church because they don't believe in Jesus and that's bad"

    yeah, pretty sure I know what I'm talking about, since that's what they told me to my face. I didn't say they "hope" I'm going to hell, just that's where they believe all godless people go.
