    What's So Great About Humanity?

    Thank you for that quote, Pondering. Remembering it has made things a bit better for me lately (and forgetting it certainly does get one all “tamas”ed-up, doesn’t it?) For those of you who may not quite understand, here are a few definitions. (They are not mine. I stole them from Bing – who...

    What's So Great About Humanity?

    I really hope that you meant that in the same way that @Peaceseeker did in his post, otherwise I don't really know how to respond. Surely there's something about our species that you find worthy, so I'm just going to chalk it up to you having a bad day. Every so often, I also get the feeling...

    What's So Great About Humanity?

    Don't count on it. I can still be downright nasty if the situation calls for it. It's just that, as far as MeditationSync and his friend are concerned, their criticisms are due more to their insecurities than to my ego. So, even though it bothers me that they seem to misunderstand me and my...

    What's So Great About Humanity?

    For MeditationSync: I was trying to avoid bringing this matter up, but... It seems that you and another member here have been trying a bit too hard to keep a narrative going. The narrative, in this case, is that of my desperate need to constantly feed my attention-starved ego. The thing is...

    What's So Great About Humanity?

    Thanks to Pondering for his recent posts here. You get a "like" for each - not only because it's my policy to "like" every post written by others on this thread, but because you praised ME. How could I not like that? It's always good when someone else posts something here. I was starting to...

    What's So Great About Humanity?

    I've had a whole week to prepare something good for you folks to read, but instead I was my usual, procrastinating, lazy self and haven't written a damned thing all week that's worth reading. (Some of you may think that I've never posted anything here that's worth reading. You may be right.)...

    What's So Great About Humanity?

    Now, if you'll notice, I did not say that I was posting only once per week, but that I'm doing so every week. I'm dropping in every day to read other threads and, every Wednesday, I'll be posting something here. I'm not limiting my input - only my output. I will be reading other folks' threads...

    What's So Great About Humanity?

    Hello. I am back. For good this time. Sort of. I am now hijacking my own thread. Can things possibly get any more absurd? What am I saying? It's the internet. Of course, things can get more absurd. What was I thinking? There are some of you who think I'm condescending - that I consider you...

    Time for another "vacation". You'll see me when you see me. Take care.

    The Truth About Making Money Online — Wealthy Affiliate is a Gamechanger

    Me: Hey, I want to get paid! Num7, when are you going to start paying me for all of the intelligent, incisive, thought-provoking content that I bring to your site? Num7: I'm not sure. Why don't you start providing some? Then we'll talk. Time passes. Me: Okay. I want to be paid what I'm...

    What's So Great About Humanity?

    In spite of everything, I will never give up on humanity. Not one little bit. It's true that we have a barbarous past. And it's true that many live in such conditions even now. Hopefully, though, we are merely living in the fog created from the last, dying breath of barbarism, and that the time...

    Conspiracy Theorists Ask the Question — Are Suspicious Packages a False Flag Operation?

    Information, Recantation and Explanation 1. Upon further discussion with my acquaintance I find that she did not, in fact, witness the party name change, but rather read about it from another source. Second-hand information is bad enough, but third-hand? Strike one. 2. It's quite possible...

    Worth A Thousand Words

    A chatroom discussion led me to start this thread. I've never posted a photo of myself online (because I didn't want to frighten small children or those with heart conditions) but, for some reason, I am suddenly curious to associate a face with the words I read here from all of you. Don't be...

    Conspiracy Theorists Ask the Question — Are Suspicious Packages a False Flag Operation?

    I usually can't stand politics and hate conspiracy theories, but the fact is that I can't stand liars even more, so here's the following: 1. An acquaintance, searching on MyLife.com, found info on the suspect stating that he was a registered Democrat. My acquaintance claims that, as he was...

    Conspiracy Theorists Ask the Question — Are Suspicious Packages a False Flag Operation?

    Senators Cory "Spartacus" Booker and Kamala Harris said to be the latest "victims" of the Non-abomber. Perhaps this is the beginning of a new Me Too movement.

    Conspiracy Theorists Ask the Question — Are Suspicious Packages a False Flag Operation?

    A shame that this occured when the President was meeting with a group of young African Americans in the East Wing. Then again, it's rather doubtful that such a meeting would have been given much space on the news anyway.

    Conspiracy Theorists Ask the Question — Are Suspicious Packages a False Flag Operation?

    According to news reports: Facebook is taking down the suspect's account. They are also looking into taking down the accounts of any of his "supporters". Now, who exactly would be supporting him? And how would Facebook know?

    Conspiracy Theorists Ask the Question — Are Suspicious Packages a False Flag Operation?

    I should note that when I said "what I was able to learn", I was referring to friends of mine who are on Twitter and Facebook whose word I accept. I do not venture into either of those two places myself.
