The questions to ask yourself are: why does she has this relation, what makes it sustainable? She seems delusional as if she wanted the relation to be perfect, why does she want her dream to be true? One possible cause is that she has a very low self confidence. She might want to carry on, because t...

I think impressing or looking different (in a good way) is really at the center of the social game, everybody is trying to look or be different, or to have a skill that make them special. If many people try to be different the same way, it creates a trend, that can ultimately become the new norm. I ...

I don't believe there is such thing as "intelligence", it's a cognitive illusion, a relative perception of a set of consequences. So on the evolutionary scale, the one we were built on, intelligence is (still) irrelevant. Then on the society level, In a perfect vision of a competitive society (the A...

All the time, I can't stop, when I stop it means there was something relevant I missed and I try to find what it was (I had a dozen of pseudo-random thoughts writing that sentence)

It seems that there is a lot of serious literature about this:

And why is there no data at all about pre-marital sex for men in the very same study? Nothing! I was going to complain about the same thing (and guess I still am). It makes no sense to try to pin all of this on women. A marriage consists of two people after all. I think it would completely change t...

Of course anarchy in the current state of society would be catastrophic. The question that raises is: what mechanisms would turn it into a catastrophe? Not so long ago, most of humanity did not questioned the role of the king and his fundamental role to keep society functioning. I see a light on the...

I admit it held no shock value for me, but I know it did do for a lot of people on another forum. Did you read the study and looked for who made it? According to this, men who want a long term monogamous relationship pretty much have to have it with a highly religious woman who's chaste before marr...

Scandinavia seems to be well represented here. I have seen both Norwegians, Swedes and Danes on other discussions as well. But I think there are far fewer from Southern Europe, probably because most people there do not really understand English. I also have the impression that people from Latin Ame...

This face blindness concept bothers me a lot. I know that some people can be face blind and have trouble recognizing some people. But it's not my case. I agree with the real-time problem. In my case, I feel a disconnection between ME when I am alone and imagining talking to someone and ME interactin...

I drink To what extent? Well I had some drinks with a friend in a bar, and I came back to that bar the morning after for a coffee: the staff bowed before me (we drank 40 glasses.. each). On other occasions, I earned respect of some Russian people, two bottles of vodka is my absolute record. But if y...

@ Tollorin Some left wing groups got caught trying to infiltrate the tea party to discredit them, scary thing is some media outlets were in on it and got caught.

I think that the key to attaining a peaceful coexistence is through finding beauty in everything. Find beauty in stupidity, greed, corruption, and lies. I doubt that people will ever be intelligent enough to establish harmony and cooperation. Even if they do become wise, I doubt they will ever be h...
