[opinion=mine] A "Good" person sincerely thinks and acts for the benefit of others without expecting a reward or a return of favor; while a "Nice" person only puts on an act with the intent (expressed or implied) of receiving a reward or a return of favor at some later time. Exa...

... I am not going to go by any experience of other people that is not personal to me, when giving such advice. If your only experiences with riding horses is getting thrown at the first 'giddyup', then the only advice you could give about being a jockey would involve how to hit the ground without ...

Søren Aabye Kierkegaard's (1813 - 1855) "Sickness Unto Death" is often thought of as being very difficult to understand, some even think that Kierkegaard wrote it to satirize how hard it is to understand Hegel.  Kierkegaard was a pretty angsty dude, even for an existentialist, and possibl...

You are asking a hypothetical question regarding artificial stupidity.  Do we not have too many "My Little Pony" books and movies already?

Why is it that it seems that most women make such a big deal about a guy being a virgin but if it's a female virgin, most guys don't care, in comparison? Is that “most” women everywhere and all of the time, or only “most” of only the few women you actually know? Well before I lost my virginity, I m...

I had to look it up, and Wikipedia gave me the most understandable answer: Spoon Theory is a metaphor that is used to describe the amount of mental or physical energy a person has available for daily activities and tasks.  The theory was developed by Christine Miserandino as a way to express how it...

It was a typo, obviously ; and if that is all there is to criticize, then the rest of what I posted must be spot-on. I rather wish you hadn't allowed that response to draw you into that exchange, unless it's your opinion that this is a crap thread that needs to be derailed. Of course he knew it was...

I stopped caring about what other people think or feel when I realized that no one really gives a damn about how I think or feel .  As long as posts are truthful and do not violate any of The Rules, there should be no problem.  And, yes, sometimes people can be too sensitive, so "growing a thi...

Expecting another person to provide specific "feelings" is unrealistic, especially when expecting those "feelings" to be provided on demand, and even more so when expecting them to be provided by a person with autism.  The OP would be better off to either: (1) lower her expectat...

Lots of conspiracy theories and no proof.

Another right-wing non-event has fizzled out.

Another old man convicted of murder ... so what?

I am relieved the trial is over, and that his name no longer leads the headlines.

Why are all these posts about Sex? To answer this question, one has to understand that many members of this website have difficulty meeting people in the first place, and even more difficulty developing relationships to the point where both people feel comfortable with even the idea of having sex. ...

... Perhaps we should be viciously attacking the system that produced Trump. But I don't see that happening. That is because Fred Trump and Mary Anne MacLeod Trump are both dead. Bazinga! That's funny, but it still doesn't negate my point. It was not meant to be funny, since they brought him into t...
