    Is pain just an emotion?

    <-- Marine :) I think you bringing that up reminded me of some of the training back in the early days and how adrenaline can effect your perception of pain.

    Is pain just an emotion?

    Nicely said Wave. What I'm curious about is the desire to enjoy the feeling of pain, much like someone might enjoy a good cry every once in awhile. If it's nothing more than an emotion... it would seem to be possible. Or would society be against that? =)

    Is pain just an emotion?

    Visually identifying someone who is in pain should be fairly easy I suppose. But on the other hand... if someone doesn't want you to know they are sad... can't they just hold back the tears and/or fake happiness to hide their sadness? Why can we not do the same thing with pain? Is it just...

    Is pain just an emotion?

    Is pain just an emotion? I understand that pain is brought about by such things like nerve endings sending signals to the brain in an effort to notify us of danger, much like the hand on the oven burner. Hey… it’s hot, might want to move your hand away from the fire. But the brain confuses...

    Everything that can happen, will happen?

    Can I make a decision while asleep that will produce an alternate universe, and if so is it a single universe... or would I continue to create more universes while making decisions in my sleep? Obviously the decision to sleep is a choice I make, thus creating a new universe built from that...

    Violence In The USA

    I call people like you, "Scrappers!". Those are the best! And after I spend 20 minutes chasing your ass around a car in the parking lot... we go inside and have beers together!

    Violence In The USA

    The school system translates "violence" to "aggression". If a child is abnormally aggressive... they are actually saying, he is violent! Not to mention they are telling the parent in a subtle way... get your child some help before he kills somebody! They try to teach children about handling...

    Violence In The USA

    I LOVE it! Wait... I think we should teach them about real sex in school first, THEN violence... We really dont teach our children about sex... anymore than we teach them about violence. Sex ed (sex) vs Wrestling/football (violence). But with football you get teamwork... *wink* I believe...

    Hosting free WiFi

    Where I live they charge by the kb :( using my phone for anything other then text messaging runs up a huge bill :( They've got a nice little monopoly going on here. Internet should be free. More specifically, casual browsing and surfing should be free. high speeds, and larger data transfers...

    Hosting free WiFi

    A vast majority of virus' are created to target bigger companies. Eventually it will work like a scare tactic. For example... I refuse to use Internet Explorer. Virus creators have made it well known they will go to unlimited lengths to wreak havoc on that software... because it's distributed...

    What is the meaning of life?

    The purpose of life is to live isn't it? If you're not doing something that you consider living... change.

    Violence In The USA

    edward- I agree with just about everything you have said in this thread. My .02 cents: The officer was in the wrong. He himself should NEVER have drawn his weapon. Lethal force is only used as a last resort, and he should never have pointed his weapon at a civilian unless he intended to kill...

    Choose which is better to love

    Why would you bother marrying either one of them? Sounds like the ugly one is a great friend to you, and the hot one is merely a play toy. My suggestions... Keep it that way. After 10 years goes by... see which one is still around.

    The Mind's Eye

    I've read that your subconscious mind imprints just about everything from the paper clip in the corner of the room to the temperature in the room. If you walk into a room you have never been in before with your eyes closed... you'd stumble over everything. If you walk into a room you are...

    Researchers Play Tune Recorded on a Phynautogram

    This is a perfect example of why I listen to what history teaches us... but only believe what I see.

    Are you single, married, or do you have a gf/bf?

    Never rely on another human being to make you happier than you can make yourself. If you are lonely, and feel like you have a gap in your life... you haven't lived!

    Are you single, married, or do you have a gf/bf?

    I refuse to be in a "relationship" again. I stick to the booty call scene now. Or better yet, I stick to one woman who wants nothing more than I want... No commitments, no rules, no pillow talk. It helps me keep my attention focused on my daughter. Who's 6, and loves me unconditionally. ...

    Passive consciousness

    The brain can be fooled easily. In fact, 100 years ago and even before that, people made a living traveling from town to town deceiving the mind. Optical illusions, stories that spark the imagination and all the way up to today, where TV fools the mind every day. If these are not questioned…...

    Why do you tailgate?

    I once did a small psych test on the cause of tailgating. The results were interesting. It seemed that drivers would gauge their speeds based on the car in front of them subconsciously. Instead of looking at their speedometer, they would just follow the car in front of them and their vision...

    The simplest delicious nutritious meals?

    I wouldn't say anyone is getting rich off his material. Everything that was in his book is available on his website, and it's all free. I've never tried just taking supplements, I guess because in every physical I have ever had... or blood work that has been done on me, nothing was ever...

    Is there any real difference between reality and a dream?

    A maximum of 2 senses can be active at a time during a dream. In reality you can use all of your senses at once. :) Hey... what?... it sounds really really good!

    The simplest delicious nutritious meals?

    I read a book back in the 90's about blood types and how they digest foods in different ways. I had never taken it very serious at the time because I was young and felt healthy. Jump forward about 10 years I had put on some weight... and had little to no energy at all. I came across the book...

    Predictability versus controllability in life experience

    I'm pretty happy in my life. This was more of a discussion I have been having with myself lately. My friends call me "The oracle" as a joke because I predict everything they do. If I'm not right about something... I usually pretty damned close lol. Does nobody else encounter this in...

    What's the point of marriage?

    I have a 6 year old daughter, and I'm a single parent. As soon as Samantha was born... I got fixed :) I plan on raising her with a realist perspective. She says, "HEY!" by the way.

    What's the point of marriage?

    I was married for 9 years. I learned one thing. You have no control over another human being. Don't think for a second that any one person will be with you for ever and ever. The marriage contract is nothing more than your 'faith' in paper form. The fact that you can get divorced for under...
