    Rules for The Soap Box

    Here's what I recently posted on FaceBook from an article in Scientific American on how to discuss matters: 1. keep emotions out of the exchange, 2. discuss, don't attack, 3. listen carefully and try to articulate the other position accurately, 4. show respect, 5. acknowledge that you...

    Running/walking not because it's easy, but because it's hard

    The only marathon-length runs I ever did were in the military service. It's one thing to run in athletic gear, quite another in full military garb, boots, backpack, and automatic rifle. There I learned that one can make it past total exhaustion, but there's a fine line between going beyond what...

    Running/walking not because it's easy, but because it's hard

    Not all, but many 5Ks are running OR walking. That's what I love about them. They are very inclusive and celebrate just going out there. I see a lot of fat people at the 5Ks I do and think that's terrific. Give it a try!

    Any Scuba Divers?

    Congratulations on overcoming your fears and getting scuba certified!! I absolutely LOVE scuba, to the extent where I even wrote and published a book about it. What got me into it was my wife Carol who is a scuba instructor with 3,000 dives to her name. She never let her size stand in the way of...

    Running/walking not because it's easy, but because it's hard

    In his famous speech about going to the moon, John F. Kennedy spoke these immortal words: "We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard." I feel the same way about running. I don't do it because it's easy for me, but...

    Sons of unloving mothers correlate to bbw attraction?

    Certainly not true for me.

    What happened to Chat?

    Honestly, I think if that old type of chat ran in a neat, clean contemporary page setting, it could be as popular today as it was then. Truly streaming, real-time, personalized chat in a safe setting without ads and with real-time PMs and private rooms.... I don't think that'd ever be out of...

    What happened to Chat?

    Yes, in its prime the old Dims chat was SO much fun. I wish at the time I'd been more forceful in insisting with the software author NOT to tie the license to the hardware it ran on. Hardware changes all the time.

    Why is there no personal ads on this site?

    Good explanation by Yakatori. For a good while, personal ads were very prominent in the printed Dimensions Magazine. I think we reached as many as 400 printed personal ads per issue. For a while, Dimensions also had a very popular 800 and 900-number personals service. When we took everything...

    RIP Deidrababe

    Absolutely heartbreaking. Deidra was a vivacious, brightly shining burst of never-ending energy, a woman who was always up and positive, no matter what. She was a Dimensions cover back in the print magazine days, and a source of inspiration for so many. Deidra made a difference in this world...

    World Cup 2014

    Yikes. Brazil got really, really shellacked. Didn't think I'd ever see that happen, in their own home court.
