  1. I don't think that there's a thread for this yet, and the thread search agrees with me.

    So, I recently saw Sherlock Holmes, and I thought it was pretty good. A little more action-movie/ Hollywood than Sherlock Holmes should be, but still good.

    I did appreciate the little hints, and I thought the plot was- over all- good.

    However, it did seem like they were laying the "possible sequel" thing a bit thick, but hey! You can't blame them from wanting to make as much money as possible.

    What did you think?

  2. Historically, artistic people have been regarded as social recluses. Maybe, talent manifests because of this lack of interaction and they have a need to express themselves, or are talented in spite of being outcasts, but whatever.

    “Mona” is clearly very creative, and, as she had no outlet for her ideas in the real world, decided to utilize it in creating something in the imaginary world.

    I can sympathize with this. I, too, am an artistically inclined person. However, while I have never had much trouble communicating with other people, I understand her need for a friend who she can control, and make sure does not leave her.

    So, in reply to your initial question, I do think that being rejected could lead to her delusions and her bluntness, because she has been separate from society and the rules it would otherwise have imposed on her.

  3. Another thing that helps, is:

    1. Practice timing yourself doing problems. That way, you speed up, and won't freak out about time constraints.

    2. Be delusional. Say, if you have a math exam and you are scared to death of math, convince yourself that it is actually an exam in a less scary subject, such as chemistry. I don't know why, but that really helps me.

  4. Personally, I do not believe that animal testing is so awful. Alright, it sucks to be the animal, but it's far better that a rat dies than a human. After all, wouldn't you rather use something knowing that it's been tested, and that it's been proven, though trial and error, to be more safe?

    I say that animal testing is the lesser of two evils.

  5. Does understanding morality help us stop from doing bad things?? Then why do people eat meat, when killing a sentient being is morally wrong?

     

    I think that morality and understanding morality helps guide us in the right direction, but we don't always listen to what is right. Just because we know the path is safer, does everyone take the path?

     

    Also, not everyone believes that killing a sentient being is morally wrong. After all, many believe that animals exist for sustenance. Many also believe that if an animal is raised to be slaughtered, there's nothing wrong with killing it, as long as you do it in a merciful manner.
