    Well, it markets itself as 'You should feel insecure, but we can help you.'[/QUOTE]

    I don't want to look like I'm not for improving people's quality of life. But I do wonder about this talking point, and how we're supposed to do away...

    That is true but simplistic. The way to make a profit is to supply a good or service that the customer wants and at a price the customer is willing to pay. It is a meeting of minds between the...

    This is what most people do not get, I suppose because they cannot comprehend the planet being a single locality like a city or state or the Amazon, only larger but still finite.[/QUOTE]

    What do you mean here?[/QUOTE]

    It's hard to answer and be concise, but my point is that many of us suffer from the illusion that our history is intentional, and directional, and that there are...

    From my perspective the fallacy is that man is more than just another animal, with the ability to control it's own fate. To qualify that you'd need an essay, but needless to say the real forces at...

    Quite the contrary. If we make it through this century, we're through the woods.

    Based on what I've read I don't think anyone is certain at this point. That major environmental changes are occurring? Yes. That this is going to cause major upheaval in some regions of the world?...

    No, it's fine. The proper condiments for a hot dog are actually fritessaus (dutch mayo) and sriracha. Don't let these purists fool you with their mustard, which is actually the very last thing you...

    Is there a name for the effect when a good team doesn't take a poor team seriously enough and goes down 2 - nil in the first half?

    Although, to their credit Norwich is playing pretty well. A team...
