Eric-Huffman's Profile Picture
Eric-Huffman
Eric
United States
My name is Eric ( That’s my REAL name, not some made up one for online use)
I figured I better explain a few things about who and what I be before you run screaming from your ‘puters and hide under your beds.

I don’t fit into the usual molds that most people like to put others in. I have a brain that I grow hair out of.
Which I have this really bad habit or either using or NOT using on occasion.
I do TRY to use it mostly and that’s where I get into trouble.
See, I tend to be pretty smart ( as well as arrogant, conceited, overbearing, opinionated, sarcastic ect. ) MOST of the time.
However I have been also known to be dumber that a football bat.
However I digress...

What I am saying is that I form my own opinions on things.
I have my own thoughts on topics and my own beliefs that I hold very dear to my heart.
This leads to many misunderstandings when I run up against those whom I call ‘ The Herd Mind ‘ ( think about that for a sec...) to which some or most of you are familiar with.

These are the people who are blinded ( for whatever reason ) in that they believe everything someone tells them, follow whatever others are doing and think the same way that the rest of people think.
I prefer to make up my own mind on things rather than have someone else ‘influence’ me or tell me what to believe and think.
Which, as I mentioned, gets me into lots of ‘misunderstandings’ and sometimes downright verbal / written battles.
For this I will ask forgiveness and patience now so that everyone knows that I am not taking anything personally, ( nor should you )

As to who & what I am...
Well as I said I am not like most of the males in the world.
Intellectually I can be very stimulating,
However...
I care more about feelings than fact / fiction.
What I mean is that having been through some VERY rough times in my 50 years I have come to realize that ‘ Things ‘ don’t mean a anything, but the people whom I care for ( and for some reason care for me ... ) are the ONLY thing that is important in life.

However the inverse to this is that I can be fooled real easily by folks who pretend something and are actually someone different.

I also have a bad habit of caring way too deeply about some things ( as well as some PEOPLE ) this means that I when and how I get hurt affects me deeply.
Nevertheless, it does allow me better insight into understanding how and why people feel the way they do. ( along with a whole lot of experience in the sadder sides of life ) which means in a nut shell that I can relate more easily and comprehend things that the average person either doesn’t want to understand or simply can’t get inside.

Lastly I have a great belief in God.
Yet I also am not blinded by this belief as many are.
I can talk with someone and share things with them that many people wouldn’t even consider because of their stringent adherence to ‘ the way things are ‘ .
Which simply means that I believe from the inside, not just repeat words, or impose what I think on others.
In overly simplified terms I accept that other people believe something different, and would hope that by showing my acceptance , even without agreeing with them, that they / you will be able to accept me and show the same courtesy in return.

There you have it.
Just me in a nut(house)shell.
There are many more facets that I could go into and would be happy to with anyone whom is my friend.
However those are more of something that are specific to each of us, and while I have no problem talking in a public forum it is sometimes best and more personal to exchange e-mail together on some things or even take a chance and just sit down across from one another and see the person for who they are and talk.

Eric

P.s.
For those of you who already KNOW this stuff about me, well what can I say but...

Journal History

I wasn't there but a long while ago it has been popularly accepted that there was a birth of a guy that was named Jesus.
Eventually someone wrote down a bunch on contradicting stuff of what he said and did in the last few months of his life around the age of 30.
I doubt many will disagree that he did exist and by and large many of the things said and done were both true and very insightful.
At the near end on the tale of him he was murdered because he would NOT conform to the rules and laws and thinking that those in positions of controlling human influence wanted him to do. He told them  " No! " and because they could not control him they had to murder him so he could be forgotten and such thinking would not spread.

Thus is the BEST example of the Law of unintended consequence AND Murphy's coming together in THAT most historically STUPID of beliefs on suppression.

Now As I said there is much controversy on what this person actually said before his murder and what the reasons behind it was.. There is 4 'accepted" versions that are commonly used by those who venerate this person but in 2,000+ years of history, translations, corruption, politics, ETC it is understood by anyone with two brain cells to rub together that the vast majority of the commonly accepted accounts make little to no sense and while many treat that conflicting gibberish as religious gospel and accept it verbatim. Any dispassionate and honest appraisal of it can find too many flaws to consider it accurate as a historical document much less a thing of cohesive and sturdy truth.

But like anything there are diamonds to be found in the rough.

One of the things accepted that is (supposedly) said by Jesus is significant to this whole day that is celebrated as his birthday we call Christmas and is THE root of what I feel for this day and why it should remain the day of remembrance of his birth and why he has become prolly THE most famous person in all human history.

First things first.. As I have said in other places I agree that Dec 25 is prolly not the actual historical day of his birth. But does that REALLY matter? And more so is it really something that needs to be argued over in any way ? That it is/was decided to be made so is really irrelevant. December 25 is Christmas and the day that is given ( not cuz it is historically accurate but cuz  it's just a day given. That should be enough without debating it) in celebration and remembrance of this persons birth into this world.

The next thing that must be understood that while the historical account of Jesus may not be truthful or accurate considering all the contradictions. Even so one thing stands out and is mostly agreed on is that Jesus was a person who cared about the those people around him and brought compassion and peacefulness to those whom he spoke with and shared his and their lives with.
The tie into those first two is something he is reputed to have said and I can actually believe for the most part is accurate since it shows the unbowed side of him, the compassionate side and the insight and foresight covers each and every one of our lives. It is even given as a "command' and as such it is one command that we should all share and command we receive and give from ourselves.
That is simply "Love one another."

Sounds SO simple doesn't it....

Just 3 little words that have the power to turn everything around with any person alive or who ever lived.
The words who's meaning goes directly against almost everything that goes on every day in every life in every way.
Yet.........
By saying those three words and what they mean the truth of each and every life is exposed as holding that gift within each and every one of us and forcing that most hateful of thoughts into our lives.
The thought that We Are Wrong.
Wrong in actions, Wrong in words, wrong in feelings, wrong in everything.
We.  Are.  Wrong.  
This simple statement shows how wrong we are and how far down we have let ourselves fall and denied the truth of what a life is.
We are alone in ourselves and we do so many wrong things because of our fear of being alone.

Christmas is a day of birth and rebirth and remembrance to what we are and who we are and to share and celebrate the person and his words that were given to us so simply.
"Love One Another"

This is why this day needs to be celebrated.
This is why the person who gave us those words needs to be remembered and this is why on THIS day over any other day those words NEED to be put into our lives so that the can be remembered every day until the next December 25th when we can recharge, restart, regroup and push onward again with our lives that are so wrong and filled with so much wrong and so much fear and so much alone...
Take that gift that has been given each and every Christmas and fight that wrong, Fight that aloneness.
Give and share that gift that is more important than any other in all of human history and the ONLY thing that makes a life have any real meaning. 

Love is the greatest gift we have in this life and is the most valuable thing we can share in life.
But that gift of love inside us has NO meaning unless we give it away to another.

This is the spirit of Christmas.

This is why we have to have this day of giving and remembrance and to say thank you to a person who gave us the truth of who we are, why were are here and what comes next.

This is a real Christmas present

Men's Rules
We always hear "the rules " From the female side.  Now here are the rules from the male side.
These are our rules!
Please note.. these are all numbered "1"  ON PURPOSE!




1. Men are NOT mind readers.

1. Learn to work the toilet seat. You're a big girl. If it's up, put it down. We need it up, you need it down. You don't hear us complaining about you leaving it down.

1. Sunday sports It's like the full moon or the changing of the tides. Let it be.

1. Shopping is NOT a sport. And no, we are never going to think of it that way.

1. Crying is blackmail.

1. Ask for what you want. Let us be clear on this one: Subtle hints do not work! Strong hints do not work! Obvious hints do not work! Just say it!

1. Yes and No are perfectly acceptable answers to almost every question.

1. Come to us with a problem only if you want help solving it. That's what we do. Sympathy is what your girlfriends are for.

1. Anything we said 6 months ago is inadmissible in an argument. In fact, all comments become null and void after 7 Days.

1. If you think you're fat, you probably are. Don't ask us.

1. If something we said can be interpreted two ways and one of the ways makes you sad or angry, we meant the other one

1. You can either ask us to do something Or tell us how you want it done.
Not both.
If you already know best how to do it, just do it yourself.

1. Whenever possible, Please say whatever you have to say during commercials.

1. Christopher Columbus did NOT need directions and neither do we.

1. ALL men see in only 16 colors, like Windows default settings. Peach, for example, is a fruit, NOT a color. Pumpkin is also a fruit. We have no idea what mauve is.

1. If it itches, it will be scratched. We do that.

1. If we ask what is wrong and you say "Nothing," We will act like nothing's wrong. We know you are lying, but it is just not worth the hassle.

1. If you ask a question you don't want an answer to, Expect an answer you don't want to hear.

1. When we have to go somewhere, absolutely anything you wear is fine... Really.

1. Don't ask us what we're thinking about unless you are prepared to discuss such topics as Football, the shotgun formation, or sex...

1. You have enough clothes.

1. You have too many shoes.

1. I am in shape. Round IS a shape!

1. Thank you for reading this. Yes, I know, I have to sleep on the couch tonight;  But did you know men really don't mind that? It's like camping.
