On occasion, ok maybe more than just occasionally, I get email from people.  Some I know, many I don't.  They ask me questions about my world views and bariatric stuff.  I have also gotten some hate e-mail too from time to time, but I figure those are just people with nothing better to do and way too much time on their hands.

Yea SO WHAT that I am opinionated?  If we were having these conversations over a bottle of wine or cocktail, most likely they would be laughing at the world with me instead of taking me so seriously.  I swear people have lost their ability to laugh at stuff anymore.  But I digress...

Anyway, I have compiled a shortlist of some of the most common questions I have been asked.  Which I will answer, to the best of my ability.

Q.      Why don't you allow comments on your blog posts?
A.       Well, truth be told, I don't really want to moderate what other people                   have to say.  This is my blog, my world, my rules.  If you really want to
           make comments, I have a facebook page associated with this blog,
          you can comment there, or not, I really don't care.

Q.      You can be really nasty and opinionated, what's up with that?
A.       Have you ever heard of the Jersey Attitude?  I am not nasty, I am a
           Satirical Commentator.  Laugh once in awhile so your face don't crack!

Q.      How can you be an Atheist and an Ordained Minister?
A.      Do I really need to believe there is an Omnipotent Being living in the sky
          to be able to marry people and say eulogies?  Do I need to believe there is 
          a heaven and hell so I do right by my fellow human beings and other living           things?  Just because I do not have the threat of heaven and hell over my              head, doesnt me that I can not or will not administer kindness and                          compassion.

Q.        When you had your stomach removed, did it hurt?
A.        Its really different for everyone.  I felt like I was hit by a train for about 2                days.   I never really had any actual pain though.  The incisions were a
            little itchy but I don't think I took anything stronger than motrin when I
            got home.

So those are the questions that I am asked most and the standard answers that I give when I get them.  If you have any questions for me.  Please do not hesitate to email me via the contact form on the sidebar of this page or directly at: JadedMage@gmail.com
