Yeah. I was thinking it might be a cultural thing as well. I Finnish very few people 'love' kittens, food they are eating or their mom. I swear I've only used the verb love in my mother tongue for around three times, and every time I felt like I wasn't totally honest. I am aware of my own shortcomings, but I also spent 15 years with the same guy, and never felt the need to confess it. *shrugs*
Could you get lenses that would bring your better-than-20/20 vision to just 20/20 vision? Or wear a very slight tint--that way your excuse and guarantor of truthfulness would be the tint, and who cares if someone thinks they're also corrective? I am wearing glasses that were designed as sunglasses but I had clear lenses put in. They were slightly pink when they were on the rack, and for a while I considered buying them like that.
Well said. Most people here like to speak against the Israelies and see the Palestinians as victims, but it's a two-sided conflict with a long history and it has to be studied objectively to try and get to the heart of it to find a solution. Then again most Americans probably couldn't locate it on a map, so using them as a gauge would be a mistake...
""But does it matter if there is a difference if your mind is reacting the same way?"
Well...for me, as a philosophical point, yes it matters and it's of interest to me. But since we can't study this in a lab I guess not.
I am constantly on psychedelics anyway...the world seems ridiculous enough to me.
One day I'll do more drugs probably though, just to see what they're all like. I've been around drugs of every kind, even dealt them before.
Guess you sound like a winner yourself.
It's nice when nice things happen I guess.
It is a shame that it seems most people have to date jerks before figuring out what winners look like though...guess I'll never fully understand that phenomena, but better a late happy ending than a tragic one.
