    You keep using the words 'Gay'

    and 'Marriage' together, as though they represent something... this confuses me. Stop it. No... really. You tell me that you support 'Gay Marriage' I'm just not sure I understand what that is... the word is a contradiction. You don't believe me then? Maybe... I can explain...

    Marriage There are two kinds of things in life,

    basically: logical, and emotional. Emotionally driven things tend to turn out badly, for me anyway. I’ve been in love 7 or more times, and divorced twice. Strong emotion is not sustainable. Successful acquisition of practical things – like deciding which vehicle to purchase...
