    Unfortunately sunyata, we can't un-see/know things, yet... One of these days in the not so distant future though we will be able to add/subtract memories from our brains.

    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    Perfection has 2 forms. Infinity, and zero.

    If we were to strive for a perfect system, eliminating the word 'bossy' from our vocabulary would certainly push us closer toward the zero, and not toward the former. Control is a byproduct of fear, because we fear the effects the word 'bossy' has. And evil itself rides on the current of fear that flows through humanity. So if you want to purpetuate fear in this world, by all means... make more rules, more restrictions, trust people less, discredit humanity even more than we already have, doubt its capacity for excellence. While we're at it, why don't we go to war with the countries that we believe are less capable of being mature than we are.

    Hell is on earth, and its this kind of bullshit that keeps it that way.

    Perhaps you are onto something?

    This idea comes from a lefty; do we really need to know anything else?

    Sheryl Sandberg (the brain behind Ban Bossy) would be high up on that list according to what her detractors (that she is an elitist) have to say about her and her book Lean In: http://www.amazon.com/Lean-In-Women-...l/dp/038534994

    http://www.nytimes.com/2013/02/24/op...ism.html?_r=1&

    Should All Women Heed Author's Advice To 'Lean In'? : 13.7: Cosmos And Culture : NPR

    I haven't read her book, nor do I think I will, BUT the fact that she has feminist detractors but self labels as "feminist" intrigues me. This Ban Bossy campaign of hers is definitely 5 popcorn kernels.

    You clinking clanking clattering collection of caliginous junk.

    Truthfully, this post was produced with the particular purpose of providing an amazingly atrocious assemblage of alliteration.

    PS: I think if we banned the Boss, New Jersey would secede from the union. I'd rather lose other states first.
    [Trump's] rhetoric is not an abuse of power. In the same way that it's also not against the law to do a backflip off of the roof of your house onto your concrete driveway. It's just mind-numbingly stupid and, to say the least, counterproductive. - Bush did 9-11


    This is not going to go the way you think....
