    Heavens no! I was just pointing out that back then, humans believed in sacrificing, but now, sacrificing is looked upon as gruesome. We, as humans, change our beliefs through the years.

    Yes, I'm very telepathic.
    I understand what you were trying to say. I just like teasing you a little.
    What we humans believe change so many times through the years. We used to think sacrificing offerings(human or beast) to Gods was a way of living. But now, most people think it's morally wrong. And on lighter terms, we could use your example. I'm taking Mexican-American History, and just learned some gruesome things, so that's where my example came from.

    So why would you say "But there are a few things that are not actually possible"?

    and then turn around and say, "And sometimes those things that were alleged to be impossible happen."

    Sounds a little contradicting, doesn't it? But I can vouch for that. Most of the time, my thinking is worse. It's always on shifting grounds.

    Of course, if you're going beyond the possible.....

    And yes, never give up!

    lookng into a position in another country sounds like a cool option.
    Well, I believe there's always a way for what you want.

    Yes. That's very true...Have you tried applying each year though?

    Have you ever considered financial aid?

    Are none of the colleges or universities interested in taking you as an employee, or the jobs aren't interesting enough for you to be one? If it's the former, why just look at on campus?

    Latter, that's your fault.

    Yes, I am a student once more. I'm taking English, Statistics, Mexican American History, a dance class, and Tai chi.

    And why can't you?

Rule of Law

by PeterL on 11-21-2021 at 01:46 PM
I have already written about the lack of care in using laws and the constitution as the bases for governmental action, but something has to be done about it, one way or another.

It bothers me that the federal government has taken over some of the powers of the states, even though the feds are explicitly forbidden from assuming any powers that have not been granted to it. We just have to look at the federal departments to see this. Department of Education, Department of Health

How Much" Eliminating Inflation

by PeterL on 10-29-2021 at 10:11 AM
I don't often think about inflation, but it is present whenever I buy anything, and it is not as benign as some would have us think. There are many measures of inflation, but I like to use a few things to show the change in proportion. You may not remember it, but in 1820 an ounce of gold was worth $20. That same ounce of gold would have sold for $35 in the 1960'a. But that isn't comparable, because the market for gold was highly regulated.

Another comparison is in the cost of labor

Fake Science

by PeterL on 10-14-2021 at 10:03 AM
I have followed science news for decades, but I have become progressively less impressed with it, because of the lower quality of the reporting. Part of the reason might be that I am more knowledgeable now than I was a few decades ago, but I do think that the writers of science articles are not as familiar with the material they are writing about as was typical in the past. Some articles give me the impression that the writer had no prior knowledge of the subject at hand.

Something About Post-Apocalyptic Literature

by PeterL on 10-02-2021 at 01:46 PM
It has been written that a work of fiction is a conversation between the author and the reader, or one side of the conversation. That that implies that the reader must think about and understand what the author is expressing ( see The Role of the Reader by Umberto Eco for more detail). For that reason, I am giving some insight into my novels Causation and Paradoxes and Contradictions.

I have long had a problem with most apocalyptic and post-apocalyptic literature and movies, because
