“Creation - that is the great redemption from suffering, and life's growing light. But that the creator may be, much suffering is needed and much change. Indeed, there must be much bitter dying in your life, you creators!” ― Friedrich Nietzsche
I wonder how much meaning can be divined from that above quote. Perhaps change is an integral part of suffering, since we suffer yet more when we fail to adapt well within the constant flux. The transformations though are what could make us grow.
I know that there must be a better way. One day I will lay the foundations for the annihilation of all pains suffered on our part! A good first step in the fulfillment of this momentous task would be to realign the pieces, change the world architectures around. The process is all centered around this amazing idea of design.
Design is very process based, which comes before the deal is signed and completed. It's in the process that we really build constructs up, so if we could somehow make the design before the action, then all following actions could follow the commands of our designs and force of will.
Simply put, we won't shape ourselves to the world, but rather the world will shape itself to us!
My great grandmother told her kids 6 months before I was born that a "Child of Light" would be born in the east (she lived on the west USA coast), and then surely enough, I was born in Virginia, whereas nobody else in my family was born that year. She must have had some divinely inspired vision of the great things I shall bring to our civilization and our immanent salvation!
Not that I'm a messiah (I'm very far from it), but I can be a focus point for the unfolding future and an architect for our shining destiny. I alone can't be the bridge. We must all cross it together over the sparkling rainbow of the heavens and to our ultimate ascension! Rise up to your greatest height and gaze out upon the open horizon, and all the boundaries shall be broken asunder!
What do I define as perfection you might ask? Perfection my friends is freedom from all restrictions. The ultimate goal is to break our chains!

I have to say, I have a different experience of Facebook than what y'all are describing. I've had some conversations on stuff I've shared or someone else has shared that are at least as deep as what happens here. Sometimes moreso because I don't feel like I have to be constantly on guard there or someone will come in and just eviscerate my ideas (note difference between evisceration and constructive criticism, which is always welcome).

Okay, I can understand why producers are looking for alternatives to natural cork to close wine bottles.
But chewy, rubbery plastic plugs that stick to the wall of the bottle while offering next to no resistence to the cork screw? WTF?!
You end up with a deformed "cork" with a hole in the middle and the precious wine is still without reach
Seriously, how hard can it be to use a material that is easy to remove with a cork screw? It can't make a difference of more than a few cents max but does decide over whether I will ever rebuy the product.
If you don't want to use natural cork and can't make a decent plastic cork, use a screw cap, guys!

I was at a party once where the partygoers ended up without wine because one bottle had one of these impossible plastic corks. Everybody pitched some ideas in and were gathered around whoever had decided to try his hand at dealing with the cork problem. I think what ended up happening, since the cork was pretty much intact, was that we pushed the plastic into the wine bottle.Originally Posted by Nørrsken impersonating EJCC
