    I see your point, but there are different ways to be fanatical. I mean, what if the guy hadn't brought back a Bible, but, say a novel by James Joyce? Wouldn't you think that was weird? Some guy you'd never talked to before apparently cares so much about your intellectual development that he went out and got you a book and came back to your house when he had no real reason to be there, just to bring the book to you. I personally would have been weirded out just at the fact that apparently he cared enough to make a special trip back to my house. The fact that he brought a Bible just makes it vaguely irritating because I get enough of that from my boyfriend's mom.
    Well no one said it wasn't weird. It certainly was not something someone would expect on an average day. We're saying it's not fanatical. He's not picketing in front of Aldo's house with a sign that reads "Atheists burn in hell". He didn't refuse to help Aldo until he accepts Jesus as his personal saviour. He didn't talk on and on about how secular liberals are ruining America. He just dropped by after work and gave him a book. A bit odd, for sure, but it doesn't register on my Fundie scale.

    Yeah. There is really no reason beyond evangelizing to outright go out of your way and give someone a Bible. And if you're going to that effort evangelizing, you're at least a little fanatic.

    And "I saw you like to read" is about the flimsiest pretext ever. No one likes reading the Bible.

    My plumber used to talk to me about mmos he played and what I was currently playing. If he brought me a book to read, I'd read it. And I hardly saw the person at work, it was kind of weird to get a book like that, but I do like Dennis Miller.

    I don’t think you’re serious, but given that it’s about rape I’m not sure.

    I might be exaggerating, but not very much, considering that the circumstances were about as reprehensible as possible--akin to a grizzly bear attacking someone in a wheelchair.

    Considering that the people right there in the building next to where this was happening were more or less sitting there and wringing their hands, New York style, I'm glad at least someone was there to help her. The 'unnamed woman neighbor' in the story was reprehensible.

    'Oh, I guess he figured the shrubbery would be good enough for him to do what he had to do...'

    What the f***?

    I tried reading the Bible for fun back when I didn't speak English very well, because I had a friend who was pretty religious. It turned out to be a bad idea, because I had no fucking clue what was going on. There was this passage about a widow standing by the side of the road, and I read the word as "window" because widow wasn't in my vocabulary at the time, and I was really confused that someone would build a window by the side of the road.

    I trust he'll have plenty of time to rehabilitate his face in prison.

    Normally I share your opinion, but I'm not going to be put out about it in this kind of case.

    My back driver's side window has two parts, the part that rolls down, and the part that doesn't; there's, like, a plastic divider between them. They broke into the part closer to the back, that doesn't roll down.

    I was dumb enough to leave my Masterlock off, and my radio faceplate in. But no, they didn't take anything. They just broke the window, unlocked the two doors, and popped the trunk. I had no spare tire, and nothing worth taking in the car. They left my papers, my road emergency kit, my jumper cables, and my cheapass radio.

    So you only need to get your window replaced? That's not bad on the scale of suckage.

    Some cars have a little triangular window thing between the rear window and the edge of the roof. That could be it.

    Oh. I was thinking you were talking about your back window, like the wear windshield.

    It still sucks they did it, but they were at least of the variety of "kind" hoodlums/thieves in that they broke that little window rather than one that moves. I think they're cheaper to replace, if I recall.

    Hopefully you can get that all worked out rather easily. The whole thing still kind of sucks.

    That's what I was thinking, after Than explained. It was really the only thing that made sense, but I originally thought he meant his rear windshield, and I was confused and wondering what he was driving.

    Yeah, it's a fucking 1990 Honda Civic, though, and I just dumped $150 on it after dumping $500 on it a few months ago. It's a pain in the ass.

    Also, I suspect the people whose parking space I parked in did it.

    Will insurance cover the window? It's not too bad if it doesn't, but if I had to pay even for that because some son of a bitch doesn't want to work for a living, I'd be pretty pissed.
