    Of course there is.
    Since we see the end before story actually ends.

    In the worst case scenario(s) we will see a large number of possible outcomes.

    I generally like the stories about the past because they are factual and you typically learn something from them. I especially like the war stories.

    It's that I don't appreciate my grandma's stories. In retrospect they seem interesting as she talked a lot about growing up in the 1920's and working for the war effort in WWII, but she would talk for HOURS. I remember once having to listen to her talk for 4 hours about railroads and one-room schools. Maybe it would have been more interesting if she would let me ask a few questions. And she'd retell the same stories OVER and OVER. In fact I used to say, "Grandma, I've already heard this story before. Many times in fact." She would pause, give a quizzical look as if I had just lied to her, then continue... I mean it was like she was dumping her Si on me.

    Aww... poor Shaula. Why didn't YOU initiate the conversation with your questions? That way you would hear what you WANTED to hear.

    I tried, didn't work. She only wanted to tell stories when she was 'in the mood'. Generally she was a very difficult person to live with.

    My ISTJ grandfather does tell long rambling stories. My ESFP grandmother makes them interesting by adding all sorts of fun details (most of which I am assured are made up).

    I wouldn't mind good stories... my grandfather just tends very uninteresting stories how he always managed to slip away from the duties in the army... And the other grandparents never tell any stories really. But then again, I've been saved from the boredom, right?

    I just find old people generally boring, because we seem to live in a completely different world, me and them.

    Would Bill Cosby's character in "The Huxtables" be a good mental image to get when thinking of what you refer to?

    Maybe they're boring because they're old, not because they're SJ's.

    I love old people's stories. They're always interesting. I love old people. You have to have patience with them though.
