  1. I think that competition is a good thing for the most part, it leads to better faster results in discoveries inventions and improvements on inventions. it also allows us to choose what we want,well the free market does, the more competitive a company or business is the more likely they want to have good service for an affordable price and they stay in buisness. it can get out of hand like the olympics where people have to take creatine and other steroids to in hence there performance but just having a competition it not the reason they are doing this there can be a more moral and safe Olympics
  2. I have somewhat of a similar problem, although i did very well in school i was bad at math, i cant believe I got a c in all of the high school math classes. I want to go into science but my worry is i will spend a lot of money on college and end up retaking math classes and still not getting it. my self esteem was so low in high school that i thought i could never do well in any academic college so i went to art school. i am graduating next year and i feel like i just wasted a whole bunch of money. my self esteem is still the same, I got heavily bullied for being in English as a second languag
  3. christ cant be the only one who is exactly 6 ft tall, my dad is also. at least in inches hes less then 6ft1.
  4. maybe I'm an outlier but I closed one eye then the other and I think I see with both eyes the same so how is solving a puzzle with one eye closed any different then the other? do the puzzles have to do with depth or color, even color I don't see a difference from one eye to the other, it might be not a visible difference.
  5. My mom has some crazy beliefs. I just don't understand how a person well educated in science and engineering would believe these things. my dad is also an engineer and he has very scientific beliefs, grounded in reality. my mom thinks that cheating is ok people are not supposed to be monogamous, she beliefs in magic and is friends with people who she calls wizards. She thinks they are real magicians. I'm serious.she believe in karma, which not that bad, I do not believe in karma but its better then magicians. There are some things she does that worry me about her beliefs, like she dose not go
  6. I agree with ajb this is what the dictionraly would define it as "the study of the fundamental nature of knowledge, reality, and existence, especially when considered as an academic discipline. a particular system of philosophical thought."
  7. thats funny, my professor told me she got a phD just to get to wear the tam hat, she was kidding of course.
  8. I understand all the words but im not sure what you mean. As I understand it you are asking are they strong headed in their opinion but mostly in agreement or in support of each other but disagree a lot and kind and informative about it. please correct me if I misunderstood. I think people can be strong headed but in disagreement so I wouldn't want to link agreement and strongly set in their opinion. i think scientist are mostly in agreement on things that have good scientific proof behind it.they are usually open minded because science is the pursuit of knowledge and knowledge can form an op
  9. yep thanks I am on dating sites. maybe it will work out one day, I just don't like waiting.
  10. yes it did.I dont remember how I found out where babies come from ,I knew when I asked when I was very little they told me that storks bring them but everything else i found out online. they didn't let me masturbate they said it was wrong and only sluts do it and to this I am afraid to masturbate, I am just afraid of everything sexual because then I'm a slut. women are just afraid to be sluts. its just, then what? what do I do to reverse this mentality?but I wonder what kids grow up if they watch inappropriate porn at a very young age.
  11. I so not think you'll find something that pumps air out of such a small container. its best to either use a type of food that stays good in containers or try different containers. I like ziplock bags the most.
  12. I have the same question, I think people are afraid here to admit they are atheists or agnostic. and I think even if you are not strongly religious your beliefs can greatly impact the things you do. I respect freedom of religion. but i want to be with like minded people,Christians, Muslims and Jews have communities around the country I can join if i agreed there is not really as big or prominant atheist community thats all I want. I m glad that at least atheism is not viewed as morally wrong by the general public, people will treat me the same weather I'm atheist or not.
  13. I think it really depends on the age and what kind of porn the kid watches, I think its good to have some exposure to the opposite gender because they have a natural curiosity about what the opposite gender looks like. I cant remember the exact age I started but I think it was around 6 or 7th grade. I watched pretty tame porn and for me I just wanted to see penises learn more about the male body because there is no other way to see nudity. I remember around that time my parents didn't want to give me any kind of sex talk, they still haven't talked to me about it, but they gave me a book on sex
  14. clothes can definitely say a lot about the person, I also wonder if there is any psychology behind the looks of clothing. like maybe clothing does not have a societal determined meaning. perhaps a certain kind of clothes appeals to intelligent people because it looks comfortable and clean cut. but at the same time there are definitely outliers with clothing, some intelligent people are stuck working dirty jobs where they cant wear good looking clothing.
  15. I find that strange too, I have seen children hit themselves when they realize their wrong but I haven't seen it for frustration I see more hitting the table for frustration. I guess they just need to hit something and they don't want to damage anything so they hit themselves.
  16. these are all different reactions, drug addiction is different then falling out of love. http://www.nytimes.com/1987/03/17/science/intensity-of-emotion-tied-to-perception-and-thinking.html?pagewanted=all there are some studies show that highly emotional people will be highly emotional throughout life. this dosent relate as much to your topic but it might be informative. some people get strong emotions , people who get strong emotions other people don't see it as those do these people have more complex lives.in one study people kept a journal of emotions from their day to day lives and wer
  17. this still relates to why I want a surgery, self insecurity developed from mens rejections. I do go to the library once in a while not many people there my age, if any. but that is a good idea, I don't go to bars anyway. its hard to meet people in museums I cant keep a conversation going, so far the best places i got to meet men is on public transportation and at our local pool. thank you for the advice. thoes are the places with grate men maybe I need different tactics.
  18. I cant seem to convert them into sayings, but I can write them down into a story. I thought about writing my books down and publishing them as short stories or add on and invent long books out of them but first I would have to patent the stories and find a publishing company, become good at writing, I would rather write down the stories and have a writer publish them. I do try to illustrate my dreams because im an art major, some of them came out ok but some im just not capable without references, I need to go out and look for references, I cant use someones photos off line.
  19. i think the zoo did the right thing but still its partially their fault. they should not have big enough hols in cages that people can get in. how did the mother not notice, i would think she kept a good eye on him if she had no other kid to look after.
  20. I just wanted to know your thoughts on the story about the gorilla that got shot because a four year old boy climbed in the cage with it and the zoo did not want the boy to get injured. who do you think should be responsible? I agree with their decision about shooting the gorilla, a tranquilizer would take too long to kick in and something might happen to the boy by then. I think its both the parents and the zoos fault, they would not have cages that people can get in. but I think its more the zoos then the parents, it just surprises me that the zoo has such cages that you can climb in for suc
  21. i do not think that dreams mean anything because whenever I read the meaning behind dreams it docent fit my dreams. if they meant something then one dream should mean the same thing to everyone that has it. so having a drem to balance out emotions makes a lot more sense to me. they cant exist for no reason. it also says here that most dreaming occurs in deep sleep http://psychcentral.com/lib/stages-of-sleep/ i also wonder what makes you remember a dream. I dont remember most of mine, i get one every once in a while but my parents have a dream they remember every night. they love to wake up and
  22. yea I agree I don't want shallow guys. but i want a guy. I just thought about everything I want to change is possible to change, my mom said do you like the way you look?, I'm like no, then she said why not change to the way you want to look ?whats stopping you?. and i thought about it, I decided nothing I dont want to go through life hating the way I look and after this there is nothing else I would want to change or thoes things are not possible to change. your right people cant be both muscular and have big boobs naturally. I dont know which one I would pick, probably still the boobs. maybe
  23. iNow has a good source I found another site for it,http://www.drugs.com/sfx/aspirin-side-effects.html these were listed here frequently reported side effects include: heartburn, epigastric distress, dyspepsia, and nausea.but yea allergic reaction and stroke is another one.
  24. I agree with stringjunky, one looks at peers or majority to determine morals, you think logically, you determine the pros and cons, of course I don't support cannibalism but you cant compare that to veganism/vegetarianism. the reason why it is so easy for me to say that we should not punish people for eating meat is, I don't want to restrict many people for something that will not do them any good, there are people who can not survive on a vegan diet, you hare harming people by preventing them from choosing their diet. I am one of thoes people, I am allergic to nuts and soy, and i hate beans,
  25. I agree with stringjunky in his last post, dreams can exist to balance out emotions you experience in life so you wouldn't be too happy or too sad.I would have never thought about it so thank you for the post. I also agree that our brain acts differently in our dreams we would not think that way in life, sorry if I'm using over simplified language its just that i have to read many of these posts many times to understand the full meaning.
