"Thanks a lot. I'm already finding the wisdom, this place is unbelievable.
I did take a look at that series, and was amazed. It's just perfect, there's no other way to put it.
I exercise mostly on my own, using the Power 90 Fat Burning…"
"Well welcome to the forums friend! I hope you find a good bit of wisdom amongst the blog. I always suggest this to young people, but have you looked over the Heading Out On Your Own series? I've been going over it a few times…"
"Honestly, I have this problem. My reason, though, is different from the ones stated below. For years, I was the cool kid, so I'd trumpet about and publicly announce my accomplishments, because I knew I'd get a good reaction. Now that…"
Ahoy there, brothers of America. I'm Kaustubh, a seventeen year-old currently starting my final year in high school. I came across this site a week ago, when looking for style tips for somebody my age. Little did I know what sort of journey I was beginning. Within a week, I have now read every even slightly relevant article posted here in the past two years.I started this year having resolved to improve myself in every way, and I shall strive to do so.

Far, far too many to count, though Gone With The Wind, To Kill A Mockingbird, War and Peace, The Godfather, and more recently the A Song of Ice and Fire saga will figure prominently.
Once again, way too many. The Lord of the Rings, Gladiator, Nolan's Batman Trilogy, Dead Poets Society, Titanic, and A Few Good Men are some favourites.
I tend to favour pre-21st century music. I love the classics - the Beatles, ABBA, Chris de Burgh, Pink Floyd, and Simon & Garfunkel.
"All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost."
"The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep."
"It's difficult in times like these: ideals, dreams and cherished hopes rise within us, only to be crushed by grim reality. It's a wonder I haven't abandoned all my ideals, they seem so absurd and impractical. Yet I cling to them because I still believe, in spite of everything, that people are truly good at heart."
"We are only humans and the Gods have fashioned us for love. That is our great glory and our great tragedy."

"I was speaking not of this admin, but of the political and social parallels in the middle east and the rise of ISIS. (Extreme nationalism -> extreme religious fervor; disenfranchised populace unwilling/incapable of confronting the extremism, mass…"
"It doesn't need to rise to the level of thought to have meaning.
Moving toward the sunlight means survival. I'm arguing for meaning within material existence, not that all material reactions are thoughts.
If there is meaning like this for…"
"Simplicity is your friend. Start with the half-dozen staples you eat all the time, and learn to cook them first. You don't need fancy gourmet meals ... you need the basics. Burgers. Steaks. Pork chops. …"
"Get an easy basic cookbook for people who've never done it before, with a title like Easy Basics or Where's Mom Now that I Need Her? It'll tell you the things other books assume you know, from how to boil an egg to…"
"I haven't heard of the "kicking citizens out of homes" - I knew they were building new housing, and retrofitting older units.
It's also coming with waves of far-right attacks on refugee centers.
"When I moved out on my own I started out with a frying pan and a Betty Crocker cook book. After a while you get a feel/taste for what things are and can whip things together without a recipe. If you want ease of use, try out A Man a Can…"
