  1. Now retired early after 22 years of Science teaching.  Emotional farewell to classes last week. No time for leisure - bills still have to be paid!

      Thank  you zapatos. I went back to the school today just to look at it and remember all the fun experiments I did there.  It was my chance to say goodbye but I still felt a tug to the heartstrings.  I will be now hanging my "arse out of the window" as they say in Scotland by going into the tutoring business.

  2. My cousin Jeff Stewart died this morning. Jeff was more than a cousin, he was my brother in so many ways, the way only a real brother can be. One of the few people I have ever known who was basically a good person no matter what situation he found himself in. It's difficult to wrap my head around the fact a world can exist without Jeff in it.

      I love this poem.  However, you do understand why people i a Science forum may be opposed to your views on death as a new beginning...

  5. I'm basically set for life now, and I find that it's not all that fun. I've lost a lot of motivation to keep going higher.

      If you are unhappy, there is no reason to stay in your current job.

  7. My promotor called the first three chapters of the literature review part of my thesis (totally 10 chapters), which currently counts approx. 40 pages, "Very thorough and accurate!" with only 3 small detailist remarks.

    Made my day.

      Thank you guys - I feel positive and happy.  Age is a number and I don't feel like I am an old grandad and the best part is that I get to hand her over to her real parents after playing with her.  Bliss! Zapatos and Moontanman, good luck when you join the grandad club, I cannot describe this feeling completely.

      The answer is always within yourself.  Circumstances do not create feelings.  Feelings are caused b thought in the moment.  Release your negative thoughts and then clear your mind.  Thoughts in the moment can be released with ease. You have infinite potential!

      I'll have to buy one of these for myself so that I can see what all the fuss is about.  Surely there is a world which cannot be explained by fancy mathematics....?

  20. The world is a dangerous place to live, not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don't do anything about it.

    1. jimmydasaint

      jimmydasaint

      Absolutely true. In my lifetime I have seen this thousands of times. All it takes is for each person to do a little. For example, not walking past people in trouble but to try to help them out. Even a kind comment suffices...

      Men's rights my ass! Women are never given the equality they deserve in democracy because of the dominance of white, middle class males in middle and top management positions. Let's get women equal before we think of men.

  23. I think it's perfectly okay to think of some women as inferior. Because it's also perfectly okay to think of some men as inferior.

    1. jimmydasaint

      jimmydasaint

      Chose a criterion for inferiority or superiority - the Nazis definitely chose theirs. Controversial comments man!
