lose their tans???
a question again, :?
what does "purple-eyed males will lose their tans before marriage" mean? pls help.
two more questions,
1) what is "evangelistic thievery"? is it a sect or a person who tries to secretly teach a new religion? if not, what is it?
2) when someone says "your life is not waiting." does it mean we have to do things real quick, like change now. 'coz life is too short, or what?
All of those phrases are foreign to me in the sense that I have never seen them before. I would have to guess at their meaning, and to do that I would need more context.
Ok, see the context below:
1) evangelistic thievery
Abortion, the butchery of dolphins, the rain forests, the animal rights, evangelistic thievery, mercy killing, etc. If you are giving your attention to it, seeing only the horror, feeling the transgressions, you are adding to it and making it bigger.
2) purple-eyed males
80% of purple-eyed males will lose their tans before marriage. Awful! Forget that damn statistics!
*** I don't know if this context helps ****
3) your life is waiting
This is a title of Lynn Grabhorn's best seller book, Excuse me, Your Life is Waiting. I don't understand why she has to say "your life is waiting". The book is about to change our feeling, just to feel good, that I wonder if "your life is waiting" implies "do it now!"
Might evangelistic thievery being the poaching of people by dubious means? I know that Christian missionaries in India have been telling sex workers that if they convert, they won't getAIDS. Could it be that?
Is purple-eyed the same as red-eyed? Affected by excessive drinking?
Your life is waiting suggests that you will discover the real you in the future if you buy this book.
I am as puzzled as you are, especially about the first two. I think your life is waiting probably means good things are going to happen to you, but that's just a guess.

I don't think that "statistic" has any connection to reality. It was probably just made up.
so....forget about silly stats or reality, what still confuse me are...
1) What does "purple-eyed" mean? Angry?? or Drunk??
2) What does "lost their tan" mean? Is it supposed to mean "Being wild"???
