    EffEmDoubleYou: Calling them unrealistic expectations is little more than a convenient excuse for us to convince ourselves that we don't need to put in the effort to achieve them.

    The human species as a whole is a raging, narcissistic failure of an experiment.

    But if we continually fail, where is the evidence that we're capable of succeeding? What if we are nature's version of the Peter Principle?

    Either of them would be fine. Kittens would naturally make a better candidate though. I think they've got more hunting instincts that will enable them to be fit for the environment. More likely to become apex predators. Ladybugs might eat leaves, but if there's a problem with the plant supply, they will be in serious trouble.

    Yeah, as lonely of a journey it may be, I'd rather not sacrifice what I believe in, or change myself just to fit in.

    We are too idealistic. It's how we got here, yes, but it's why we keep going and fail.

    Because there are a scant few examples of people who have been capable of it, and changed things for the better.

    Doesn't having too few of what's needed to succeed constitute a failure?

    Robots are going to take over when we are all gone. Or robot kittens.

    But there has been success. It's very slow, but its still there.

    People's lives are infinitely safer and the average person is so much better off now, compared to less than a 100 years ago. People just take that for granted because half of them don't even know (or have forgotten) what it's like to fight for the things that you deserve.

    It's not a failure if someone succeeds.
