On average, Koalas usually live about 15 years. Doesn’t Australia have laws requiring parental consent for the marriage of a minor? How would you gain consent from the koala’s parents when (1) they may already be dead, (2) they can neither read nor write, and (3) they may not even recognize their own offspring?
:lmao: As dry as ever...

That seems to be a very popular opinion. Are you sure you posted in the right thread?

This is not science, this is psychopathy in action.

people need to stop letting these political / media assets stuff "the science" down their throats and start committing a little science on their own .

This has been tested extensively, and it has been found time and time again that the differences between sexes become more pronounced when you stop treating them as different. While it's true you can find women who are like men and vice versa, the vast majority lie at opposite ends of the curve. There are differences biologically (including brain function) whether people want to admit it or not.

People should be able to wear whatever they want, no matter how much controversy their choices cause.

If there were no religions, we would have Lunar and Martian colonies by now.

Pea Noms would be fun and easy to breed.

Wormholes would look more like spherical regions of intense diffraction than flat planes of shimmery silver.

I think the 70s were better than the 80s.

Anything worth doing is worth doing badly.


Unkindness is not a deterrent to unkindness. The other person is usually thinking the same way, so where will it stop?

I like to try to always treat everyone as if they are giving me 100% of their best effort and their best thinking. I don't know what is motivating the other person. What they are doing probably makes perfect sense to them in their situation. I may be wrong a lot of the time, but I like my outcomes so much better!


Chastizing myself has never made me any smarter or more disciplined. When I choose to be mindful and rational, my outcomes are my best deterrent from repeating mistakes.


Radical acceptance does not mean approval. I cannot deal with any problem until I accept it. That is the most empowering thing I know.


I never accomplish everything I want to do in a day. I never achieve my ideals and values. But I succeed best when I celebrate what went well, and accept that I did all I could.


There is always yuck in life. But there is always yum as well. I pay attention to the yuck when there is something I can do about it. Then I let it go and focus on the yum.


Power exists only here and now.


No matter how desperately I don't want to get out of bed, I start by focusing on one small thing I can do that will make me feel good about myself. After that, it is much easier to do the second thing.


Nobody in the world can make me happy if I am not able to be responsible for my own happiness.


I am of no value to others in any relationship if I am not whole without it.


Don't forget what the grass feels like between your toes!


"The Little Prince" is one of the greatest books ever written.

So is "The Prophet," by Kahlil Gibran


I live by two commandments: Trust the universe, and be love.


When there is drama, I practice my freedom waltz:

1. Do what I can about my problems
2. Do what I need to do to take care of myself.
3. Take frequent breaks from my worries. (da capo -- that means, repeat.)


All of this is perfectly true for me. And every word may be wrong.

I think that peas are cute, sweet and wholesome.
