Ive tried commenting with answers, and met with mixed success. Most seem uninterested in dialogue, but any reply is better than none.

I get the image that this is a small community, as I see only a few of the same characters on board.

JNicka- when we see there are 6 or 10 "thank yous" under our answers, and I do appreciate each one, it is a small number compared to say, FB, where you might get thousands, or tens of thousands. I find FB is terrible, quit it long ago, but it might be even more interesting if … Read more

I look back at many people with Vices and wonder . . . Even though I find it distasteful, perhaps, this is what brings them happiness. Isn't the pursuit of Happiness what we should strive for in life . . . Isn't this the difference between living and existing?

AFTER high school or college? Those are not kids. They are adults. Back in 2013 Missouri passed a law encouraging school to teach first graders gun safety. Now before anyone gets upset, they are not actually handling guns. It is based on the NRA's Eddie Eagle program where they teach children what to do when … Read more

I find that if I write things down I'll remember it better. It doesn't matter if it's on paper or computer, as long as I'm making the conscious effort to rewrite it instead of reading over it, I'll remember.

I do a lot of copying and pasting into Word and then redact that document further.

And then I save it in an application called Pigeonhole Organizer.

Occasionally I take a screen shot and paste that into the document if the "copy" command is non-functional.

The Z. answered Didge Doo's question

I take a lot of notes, Didge. Lots of notes. I don't just read so much as research topics, mostly nonfiction. I tend to save a lot of material to reread and compare. The sponge isn't quite so absorbent as it once was.

Science can offer no solid answers in respects to how EXACTLY the universe came about. We can determine WHEN it started (again not exactly but around 14 billion years ago), and hypothesize how the planets were formed, but we have no absolute working models to establish any Scientific theory. We can tell from other natural … Read more
