    I redact everything I have written or will write on this forum prior to, subsequent with and or after the fact of its writing. For entertainment purposes only and not to be taken seriously nor literally.

    In forums. My patience for discussing philosophy isn't as big because a) I'm usually doing it in english which is not my mother tongue b) because this is not real time and I have to wait for other people's post and lose interest in the meantime c) because how big other people's posts can be.

    In real life nothing gives me more pleasure though.

    I dislike anything that has no shred of philosophy behind it both here and IRL. My comments on anything are always with the intent to tilt the conversation into philosophy ground. Even if in a subtle way.

    "The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents... Some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the light into the peace and safety of a new Dark Age. " - H.P. Lovecraft

    i like talking about almost anything. except for problems i cant fix- i dont want to be a debbie downer! also, i have a love/hate relationship with religion/politics. i love talking&debating with people who have opposing opinions as long as they realize that a difference of opinion doesent mean that i dislike them as a person. and if someone thinks disagree=dislike, they wont listen to a word you have to say and probably wont be any good at swaying my opinion to their cause. so whats the point, you know? i can out-argue a good lawyer, but i hate bustin' out my debate skills. i would much rather agree to disagree and go get ice cream or something. so pretty much any topic is great unless the other conversationalist involved is a GIANT DOUCHE!
    I will buy you a drink and I'll tell you what I think, and tomorrow, in the morning, I won't be sorry that I didn't sleep.

    I hate talking about details. The minute a discussion deteriorates to determining whether the electricity in their home town costs x or y [money units] I look the other way and start thinking of something interesting. I'm present as long as the discussion is about how electricity should be generated (or some other "bigger picture" discussion) but when it gets down to the grains on the beach - I fall asleep...

    I also detest talking about the weather, although I have learned to respond to people who do - not to seem rude...
    A few years ago my daughter got herself a boyfriend. When I met him the first time he started talking about the weather, as if this was the most interesting topic he could find? (It probably was...) I answered something indifferently, which made him think I didn't like him - so every time I met him he tried talking about the weather - because this is supposed to be a subject everyone can relate to and likes talking about...?
    I was so relieved when she dumped him. And her next boyfriend I really liked. He was probably INTP :-) and never talked about the weather or any such boring subjects. His only flaw was that he held himself in unproportional high esteem - but that's probably a common syndrome among 17-year-olds...

    Typical noteworthy topics:

    Science (from physics to the social sciences)
    Philosophy (only certain topics though)
    Technology and its impacts
    Meta-analysis of the forum
    Cultural and sociological trends

    Often stimulating:
    Discussions about politics that are not dominated by discussion of ideological concepts.
    Books (fiction & non fiction)
    Threads sharing art & music.
    Discussion about music and acoustics
    (rare) Humour

    Sometimes fun:
    Enlightening autobiographical stories
    Accusing people of being different types than they claim in their profile.
    Cars (yeah, it's a type of technology, so what..)
    (regular) Humour

    Least noteworthy:
    Threads about me
    Debates about religion
    Pop culture
    Threads that descend into pointless debate

    Favorite: People's lives, relationship, the world, the future, the future of the world, my place in the world, my friends future plans, retirement, the destiny of the planet, the destiny of the U.S., anything and everything Africa, racism, Asia, the future of China, girls, and most importantly my childhood and those of my friends (just reminiscing about the good old days..and talking about how stupid we were to want to grow up, and how that affects our mindsets about everything now..)

    Least: Anything that seems obvious. Religion, Politics, Philosophy, Humanitarian crises, etc etc. To me these things have obvious answer so it's almost useless to talk about least inside the realms of "just talking". If I'm going to seriously talk about religion, I'm not going to be "just talking".
