  • Do you miss the times before technology took over everything?

    Best answer: I'm almost 56! I have 5 adopted kids under 12. I sit there and watch them all playing on their tablets or 3DSs and think about what life was like when I was their age. I know most of it will sound like clichés from Norman Rockwell paintings, but we really did leave our doors unlocked 24 hours a day, friends never had to knock and we played outside and drank water from the hose from morning until night because nobody ran air conditioners all day and the house was hot as hell. My two best toys were sticks and dirt and the closest thing we had to technology was that kid in class that had a calculator on his watch. Yes, we did have to get up to change channels, but there was only about 5-6 of them so we didn't get up that often! My favorite shows were "Wild Kingdom" And "The Wonderful World of Disney" which were both on Sunday night. We had to wait all week to watch cartoons on Saturday morning! We played baseball in the little league. If you sucked at it, you sat the bench and if you hit a home run, nobody really gave a crap. Sometimes, after the games, Dad would take us to Carvel for ice cream cones. But, if we did something wrong, we got our asses beat and if you ratted out your brother, we got our asses beat twice.

    These days, you can't say "Good Morning!" without people saying it's "Racist, Womanizing, Sexual Harassment, Demoralizing and Politically Incorrect"! You can't even say "Merry Christmas" without offending people!

    Now, don't get me wrong, I love playing my PS4 with my new VR and I love having information at my fingertips, but sometimes I definitely miss the days when you could stick out your thumb to catch a ride and "Global Warming" was getting rain in February!

  • Can I file a Bar complaint again lying, bullying attorney?

    There is a menacing attorney who is not employed by me, but threatens to file lawsuits and depositions against people based on nothing but lies. She uses the law as a weapon to silence and control people. I would like to file an effective complaint against her, but I see that most complaint are filed by Judges and clients. Do I stand a chance of being taken seriously by the Bar? I have some documentation of her behavior. I think she is unethical, but since I am not a client do I have a case?

  • Are women's standards for men higher than vice versa?

    Best answer: Yes they are, and it has always been this way. This is all due to hypergamy.
    Hypergamy is an evolutionary outcome that explains female mate selection. Overwhelmingly, a women chooses a man who is taller than her, stronger than her, makes more money than her and has higher social status than her. A male CEO will have no problem marrying his secretary, but a female doctor will not marry a male nurse. Prince charming marries Cinderella but have you ever heard of a princess even looking at a chimney sweep?

    Just go to any dating site to confirm this. Females are always looking for their 'equal' or greater. No woman is looking for a househusband. Because this is ingrained in our genetic wiring, it will not go away anytime soon. Certainly 50 years of a social engineering program (feminism) will have no effect. Not to mention it does not address this issue at all to begin with. In it's efforts to 'empower' women it has no mechanisms to deal with evolutionary realities.

  • Why are there so few conservative professors in universities?

    Best answer: Well, there are a couple of reasons.

    Education opens your mind to the complexities of life, to the fact that there are few blacks and whites in the world, only many shades of gray. In the process of earning a PhD -- a requirement for becoming a professor -- and conducting our research, many of us travel extensively, we are exposed to a wide variety of people, cultures, points of view. That experience genuinely broadens the mind and develops intellectual and cultural sophistication that is simply not compatible with narrow-minded conservatism. The fact of the matter is that there ARE conservative professors, but they tend to be LESS conservative than conservatives in other walks of life. That is because the experience of academic life and research militates against that kind of often-rigid and reactionary conservatism.

    The second reason is that the academic life tends to attract more liberal-minded individuals in the first place. It's the kind of career that simply appeals to the already well-educated and well-read, people who are interested in research, in complexities both scientific and cultural, in studying the past or improving the future via teaching or your own work. So, your average entering class of PhD students in any department is going to include a fair number of liberals.

    Though as I said, there are a fair number of conservative academics, too.
