    Huh. The wasp sting I experienced was pretty damn painful. I don't know if it's the location (right above the knee, so since I was biking I had to keep using the muscle that just got injected with wasp venom) or if I'm just a wuss. Then again, I know a woman's pain tolerance is better than a man's, so that could be related to it.

    We should do experiments. "INTPc Pain Tolerance Competition 2014". Don't mind the leather and whips, it's all we had available.

    Wait, let me look at that a little closer...



    Oh NO!
    We didn't land on Plymouth Rock. Plymouth Rock landed on us.

    ^^^That's why we won.
    For some, "how", not "why", is the fundamental unit of measure for curiosity. This divergence is neither parallel, nor straight. Where one might have a "why?-5" problem, it might only be a "how?-2" question. But then, there are also many things where the "why?" is immediately obvious but the "how?" is best measured in centuries of perpetual wonder. Both approaches have their drawbacks.

    If one is superior, the other is unaware of it.

    I just heard about wine made out of figs and wine made from grapefruits. Both are supposed to be pretty good, and in one large and blind taste test ( I put some stock in those blind ones ) the fig wine beat out all the grape wine in the white wine category. Hmmm. Go figure...

    My thread on values didn't take whatsoever. I wonder why, it's certified non-fluff philoso-babble with lots of question marks...?

    I always hate it when people write "...?", planting that rising inflection in your mind at the end of statements.

    Well, I don't know if you give a damn about my perspective on the matter, but I'd like to add to that, and say this:


    Whatever things I disliked about geeky circles (and there were) also seemed to be present at the old forum. And those things are within me, too.

    I saw that thread. I didn't understand the question(s). Maybe that was just me.
