    I know what I'm talking about even if I am 20 years old.
    My mother left when I was 5. Not because she didn't like me , but because she was having a really unhealthy relationship with my father and needed to go find herself. She wanted to take me with her at first, but my father didn't want to. So I had to stay. But I always understood her decision and never blamed her for that.
    Now that I met her the only thing that upsets me and makes me feel bad is that she went back to her old habit of having a terrible relationship with men that destroy her, and our separation resulted useless after all. But if she was happy I wouldn't have problems with that.
    You give birth to children for the world not for yourself, you can see that in animals. You teach them values and what they need to be good people and then leave them to live their own life. She taught me a lot. And now I can say I'm not narrow-minded about this kind of stuff. It doesn't mean that the day I will have children I would leave them. I will keep them by my side as long is healthy for the two of us.

    Everyone has got different lives and experiences, and values just can't be the same for all people. Everybody have the right to build their own value set, their own opinions that are right for them and people around them, but it doesn't mean that they aren't supposed to at least try to understand the decisions of other people.

    We don't know Einstein. History as, people's stories, even present ones, are all suppositions and versions chosen for convenience only. Not even Einstein himself would ever tell us the truth. He did too make mistakes as his own familiars made mistakes too, because there's not such thing as the perfect person. There can be slightly better people and slightly worse. This doesn't make of anyone a bad person. We don't know what's behind what we read or what we hear, so I don't think we have the right to judge. He was a great mind. Like not many. And a person who was as good as he was bad. Like all of us.

    Let me think..
    Actually while typing me they catch emotions from me, more than I have.
    If it means overrated then yes at that case.
    However, I’d like to have enough emotions to be proper, I need to have it,.
    So, I don’t mind adopting “emotional” in my character, although it’s not true..
    I totally accept my type as it is, but just like every other type I need to improve it.
    And, yes, mine is overrated just like how it should be.
    But to be honest I don’t have it, yet I show it.
    Imagine this is the best thing you've ever read.

    Imagine that I am emotional. Imagine my emotions stream out of me like a radio broadcast. And imagine you can tune the radio. And you have a radio of your own. You can tune your radio to my frequency and I can tune my radio to your frequency. So if you sit in one corner of the room and I sit in the other corner, we can broadcast in stereo.

    Silence is golden.
    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...

    Indeed, my dear Coriolis, when we are tuned to different frequencies, we can't broadcast in stereo, we only create cacophoney, and so silence is golden, and we sit on opposite sides of the room, indeed, on opposite sides of the planet, in silence.

    I run a business wow evil business owners who provide things of value.

    Unfortunately, many people do. Equally unfortunately this is why the widespread teaching of alternative methods of analyzing information and making decisions are not supported, at least by U.S. corporations. It is much easier to manipulate people's emotions than to make a logical case for the merits of one's product or service, not to mention making a product or providing a service that is worth buying on its own merits.

    OK....so using emotions to say buying an iPhone to talk with friends is evil...when that's to a large part what a smartphone is for.....Got it...
