Not sure if this is the appropriate forum or not :shrug:

Say you grew up in the states, and your family have been over here for a few generations. You don't grow up with the culture of your family's heritage at all. Grow up strictly American . As an adult, is it possible to embrace the culture you never knew without being a total poser or appear fake?

Any thoughts, or anyone who have been in a similar situation?
I'm a big cheese fan. I love all kinds, and was browsing the cheese section and came across a kind I've never had before. Cheese made from goat milk. I got home and cracked that sucker open and took a bite. Holy hell! I cannot describe that disgusting flavor. It barely got the tongue before it was spit out. Why would folk eat that devil cheese?


Is it supposed to be an acquired taste or am I just wired to reject that crap? :grump:
So I started to binge watch the Battlestar Galactica reimaging show a few weeks ago, and there's something that's driving me nuts. Starbuck is a Mary Sue. She's apparently the best pilot they've ever seen (I'll give that to her though...when the human population goes from billions to ~50,000 in the matter of hours, I can see her being the best pilot left :lol:). In another episode she's the best sniper they have. With a ship full of marines, how can a pilot be "the best sniper"? Later in the season we learned she was almost a pro-athlete...but couldn't because of plot apparently.

What drives me nuts is that she's not even an interesting character. She's a drunk (after a holocaust, that may be understandable) and a total bitch. Guess they tried to make her interesting by turning her into a Wesley-The-Wonderchild from Star Trek. Why focus on her instead of fleshing out the rest of the cast?

Sadly, I've noticed this behavior in a lot of the shows I watch. To me it seems like laziness on the writers :shrug:
Finally have a day I get to sleep in, when I am awoken to "MEOW!" right in my ear. I pet her some and roll over to get some more sleep. Just before falling asleep, she meows in my ear again. I finally get out of bed. I go to check on her food and water, which are both full. I return to the bedroom, not five minutes later, to this:

Luna Hogging Bed by tacosteev

The punk wanted the bed all to herself.

I am a brother, a son, a friend, and at least one other thing. Most of my pass time involves having fun in some sort of fashion.

I code, I game, I also enjoy cooking and photography. I am learning new things everyday with my mistakes. With luck I can take those mistakes and improve myself :)
Interests
I got an invite to "like" a friend's photography business page. She "specializes" in wedding and engagement shoots, and charges what I feel is a high price for the results. I don't care for the term fauxographer (because it's elitist and a stupid term), but I may be tempted in this case. She's not bad, but she's not great either. 

Many of the photos in her were out of focus, many were very grainy, the sky was over exposed, the posing looks awkward or doesn't compliment the individual and the composition was not great either. These are moments that folk, hopefully, only get one of, so it frustrates me when I see folk paying good monies for mediocre work. It's not good stewardship in my opinion.

I don't know if it's because this particular person gets praise from loved - ones and friends (I personally take that praise with a grain of salt), or if folk just think it's a quick way to make some cash, but I'm seeing it more and more common lately. Am I off base in my observation?

I really shouldn't care, it's none of my business, but it just irks me when I feel folk are being taken advantage of. :shrug:
