It looks to me like mostly new-age spiritualism, and NLP sites are citing the diabetes personality.

@Vince

I knew a guy once who had a 15inch @#&|$, but every time he got aroused all the blood would rush out of his body and he would become light headed and pass out. He needed 3 viagara just to get an erection, and then an oxygen tank to keep himself awake for it. (not a fact)

Yes.

I can't describe what happens next, except that you're forced to listen to people. You can't talk back. And when you do speak, it's stern and accurate.

Not to say I'm wise, only that I sound a lot less dumb when I'm quiet. (Smart people are dumb.)

Looks like my last post started some kind of FIRE. I mean, it's just my darn OPINION, guys. I didn't mean to lecture anyone, although I totally grant you that I probably got verbose at some point (but that's probably related to the very nature of the subject).

Writing to this forum in a second personality with a 12" johnson would deem your present username invalid.
I would suggest inVinceable as a suitable nomdiploom.

It's a rumour you hear more. When he was a second year student, my brother moved into a former sorority house (that became coed/mixed that year). I helped him move in, and the sorority groups porn was still there, fixed on the kitchen cupboard's doors(*)

The porned had a pic of the guy with an enormous @$!#@, and the text of the magazine said exactly the same

(*) a visit which cured me of the illusion both that women don't have porn and are cleaner than men.

@Marcov

That's interesting, I didn't know how widespread that rumor was. It was handed down to me by my highschool physics teacher who used to intersperse his lectures with ridiculous stories, including that one. It's the kind of thing that sounds like it could be true.

I did not claim to be the wisest - Remember I said sometimes old age comes on it's own.

Hey for those guys who sound like Tatarize always asking for scientific proof. How about checking out this link where they used Yoga etc and ended up with 16 physically changed brains while the control group remained unchanged !

Philosopher are really good entertainers. If you read 400 pages of nothing then you just can't stop laughing at the wit and fantasy they exhibit.

Hey we are not flaming we are joking.

And there is a huge spectrum of fiction, from fast-food, hyper-produced useless fiction, to thought-provoking intelligent fiction, the one that can introduce new realizations in your life or be a comfort. Dostoyevsky wrote fiction. You got a problem with Dostoyevsky?

Anyway, the amount of mind-numbing and bad nonfiction is on par if not topping bad, pointless fiction.


I'll give you that one. There is some good fiction, but as you said:

Lachie Dazeridian wrote:. . . the amount of mind-numbing and bad nonfiction is on par if not topping bad, pointless fiction.


And about math being a science:

In my opinion(haha!), math is our way of viewing the universe in a way that helps us describe it. It is also useful for predictions about what will happen in our interaction with the universe.

Example:
I have 5 rocks.
If I throw three at my monitor, how many will I have left?

The answer will be a reasonable prediction that will help me make a decision about perhaps how many I will have left to throw at a passing mammoth or something.

Anyway, I don't really care about the reality question and such I just go by something I heard the other day:
So you're flying an airplane in dense fog. Suddenly, the fog clears, and right in front of you, in all its icy glory, is the peak of Mount Denali. If you ponder the reality of your observation, you are as good as dead, because while you ponder the implications of that question, you are indiscriminately hurled to splattered doom in a crashlanding on its icy summit, while if you don't question the reality of your observation, you will make a steep bank away from the crag, and have a much better chance of making it back to the 'strip' and surviving to sell your cargo.


I also agree with TJ about old age coming usually hand in hand with wisdom. Though many of my contemporaries, and yes even myself sometimes, would suggest that our elders are old and stuffy, in reality(haha!) they have more experience than you do in surviving this cruel world, and if they have also gained some wisdom along their path of life, they will try to impart to you some of their hard won experience in the form of sound counsel. If we will consider and not brush off as absurd their counsel, it may well indeed save us from going through what they have, and make our lives easier.

Sorry for my longwinded rant here. I do not claim to know everything, but if I impart what little I know, it may save the next generation from making the same blundering mistakes as the last, and cause 'history repeats itself' to become reality in a lesser degree.

I actually try not to judge adults by age, but by their mindset and world view, which you gather quickly from anyone. Sometimes even accomplishments and experience don't tell a lot about someone's character.

Hi bfuller
That's you added.
You'll have time enough yet for another sea voyage.

Hmmm, I am far from the sea at the moment, probably further than you can be anywhere in Scotland. I am in the inland city of Wagga Wagga, home of forum member "dinosaur". 5 or so hours drive back to Sydney tomorrow.
