    I always found that converting their bodies into biofuel was more efficient. Use the energy from the previous bodies to power the saw. It makes things quite easier.

    The ashes also make great fertilizer for the plants you may want to use to cover the burial site, should you ever decide to bury some remains.
    If a deaf INFP falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?

    But I don't get mad at my dog for being a dog, does that mean I shouldn't get mad at stupid people? Or am I now some d-bag for thinking they are less than me and not responsible for what they do...because they are dumb.

    Lol I'm not sure.
    Yeah, to clarify I don't hate non-rationals. I do get frustrated though sometimes, because I don't want to be that douchebag you mentioned. But I've realized it's no crime to just let it go when they clearly can't think/refuse to think in the same terms.

    See, I don't have a problem with people believing in things I think are stupid.

    But if half of america voted to spend billions of dollars to fight ghosts and exorcise people...id have a problem.

    Alot like how religious fanatics are trying to pass laws that have no place being there, supported by the sheep of thier shepardom.

    It's about knowing what you can and cannot control.
    You can control your life and thoughts, you cannot reasonnably hope to apply that discipline to other people, as they are themselves in control of their own thoughts and lives.

    So one might as well let go of the frustrations over things he or she cannot change and make him or herself a better, more satisfying person by his or her own standards.

    I've come to realize that the really important battles are never really won using reason/logic. And just because you are right it doesn't mean you'll convince people. I guess that's why so many politicians were energetic idealistic kids with dreams of fairness utopia, and then become corrupted by the system when they realize they need to play the game to actually make some changes.

    Wrong, emotionaly appeal is a reasonnable and logical argument to us in order to convince.

    I was saying they are won using emotional appeal. And I was making a distinction between appealing to emotion and to reason/logic .

    But you need an emotional drive to motivate yourself in implementing the war strategies, coaxing morale in the ranks, etc.

    Because if I allowed myself to get as wound up as you are about other people and how they think, I'd be acting just as irrational and stupid as they are. Autopilot + smile and nod + walk away + ignore = happy me.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    Seems like you confused moods/freudian drives and emotions.
