Living with a compulsive liar is difficult. They tend to tell more lies when confronted with the lies that they have already told and they try to hide the allegations or lies that they have been caught in. Some go to great lengths to hide the truth and have even resorted to being vindictive, stalking, or trying to “get even” with those that have caught them in these lies. Some disorders, like personality disorders, can cause a person to not even realize they are lying or, those that are pathological liars, may lie and believe those lies that they[...]

Can A Minimum Wage Job Have Advantages?

I have two part time jobs, and one of them is minimum wage. They explain when you are hired that is the rate, and there are no raises. It is what it is. Your weekly hours are also limited. Let’s just say I’m not making a lot of money at this job, and I’m looking for full-time work. However, there are at least five reasons I find this job attractive, and suited for me. The Schedule is Flexible In the first place, they were willing to schedule me on days that didn’t conflict with my other job. In addition[...]

Mobile Alabama’s Mardi Gras History

The French are thought to have introduced the celebration of Mardi Gras to the New World and what a celebration it is, being well worth the effort in both travel time and money to attend. Mobile Ala., a city having some of the oldest Mardi Gras organizations and celebrations, is filled with parades and parties all month long. Partiers can fill up on Moon Pies and King Cakes, deck themselves out with beads and costumes, and figure out who Stacabamorinico is, all while enjoying good old southern hospitality. Mobile’s Mardi Gras history is over 300 years old, so it[...]

Learning Music Theory Makes Training Easier

When I started taking up piano in my teens I did not have a clue that I did not have a clue what I was doing. If you had heard me you might have not had a clue that I didn’t really have a clue what I was doing. It wasn’t until I started studying music on July 16th 2012 that I started getting it. Now, I need to practice what I’ve learned. (I did not practice it on my instrument because when my adapter broke I spent more time learning music and less time playing.) The beauty is[...]

When I Think of Talent

I feel like everybody, for the most part barring some physical deformity and sometimes even then, has a talent. At the very least I believe we all have the capacity to develop talent. We just have to recognize talent for what it is. Talent is a natural ability but most people aren’t born more insanely talented than others. They just develop their talent into a skill. Skill is just a refined, improved version of talent but the ability has to be present in the first place in order to develop the skill. My theory is that most things we[...]

The Demonic Devils Bible?

Back in the late13th century, in Bohemia, there appeared a literary work of amazing quality, rumour suggesting that this iconic production first showed up at the Podlažice monastery, near Chrudim, from where it was pawned to Cistercian monks, and moved on Sedlec.  This creation has, throughout a long history, been known variously as the Liber Permonastery in grandis, the Codex Gigas,  or more chillingly the Devil’s Bible. 1295 is the date when first written reports appeared about a volume supposedly written in 1229, possibly by one of the occupants of the small Benedictine monastery where it was discovered.
