  1. It is nice to be important, but more important to be nice!
  2. Same here as well! With the exception some of what I report actually happened, some maybe not. Just so happens sometimes my imagination runs away!
  3. I am old school.... One is borne One will suffer and One will die Interupt with as many happy times as possible in between!
  4. And I am told attracted to heat! Many years ago... somewhere in Texas... I was both warned and shocked at the number of snakes whom frequented the asphalt runway at night, to enjoy the heat...
  5. Yeah right, try that on some one with broken bones or other serious trauma. Mind over matter only goes so far for some of us..... I am a non card carrying member of the great unwashed masses, I continue to struggle and shuffle every day.
  6. I can identify with that! Those days are long behind me...
  7. I have been snake bit typically not venomous, but still able to cause infection... no fun not reccomended!
  8. No, sadly not! I have without intent caused physical suffering. Tripping for example over an animal and shown regret orally by my words as well verbally thru my actions and seen less discomfort than if I did not acknowledge it thru my words or actions.
  9. I am glad you qualified that with animals (which we are) and most creatures of Mother Nature have to react based upon our instincts?
  10. That was not my intention, to infer you suggested we are not part of nature, but rather an effort to reach a common understanding.
  11. Is that a typical reaction? By both people and injured animals? I have lost count of the dog, cat, snake,rodent, insect bites or scratches I have undertaken, / not suffered?
  12. Are we not natural? Agents of nature?
  13. Hmm try that on an injured animal?
  14. I think we can agree suffering occurs? I may have lost my way on a slippery slope unequipped to deal with the weather?
  15. I think depen I think we can agree suffering occurs?
  16. What about all of the wild life that dies or is displaced?
  17. Excuse me but how does "non-verbal" elements include symbols,. How are metaphors and or examples of behavior non verbal? As opposed to oral? I realize it is a bit of nit picking, but it helps my understanding!
  18. ? not oral versus non verbal? Kinda like sex? LOL?
  19. Short presentation

    Best regards!
  20. What made YOU laugh today/tonight ?
