Look at yourself first LOL. Your ideas of taxing everyone to oblivion and putting up solar panels and wind turbines ain’t going to do anything to
save your planet.
How do you see yourself, a person of above-average intelligence? Below average? Also what about awareness of your ability to think critically, do you see yourself with above/below average ability?

Well let’s see your content ? You haven’t said anything accept make sarcastic comments. Why don’t you have a bit of courage and present an argument. At least Bart has some content.

Cordial is like squash - add water and drink it. Haven’t used it as a mixer but now you mention it....
I also had to look up 'squash' used in this context, and came across this:

Animal consumption[edit]
The gorillas at London Zoo are given both squash and cold fruit tea to drink. When a silverback called Kumbuka escaped from his enclosure in 2016, he drank five litres (8.8 imperial pints) of undiluted blackcurrant squash that was in the keepers' area.

If I only make sarcastic remarks, how have you established I'm a Left-winger/Marxist/Clean Energy/etc supporter?

I'd also like to remind you I love freedom.

Ah... you think you're a courageous person. Do you believe you're one of a few that has the courage to speak the truth?

1. Not difficult to work that out especially when there is a lack of content or it follows a particular pattern.
2 Perhaps maybe provide more evidence that you love freedom.
3. About courage and truth it was in reference to your content.
 
I love freedom and its worth fighting for. Down with violence and disinformation and denial of facts especially sabotage of science and innovation.
Hey who wants a cell phone that has an exhaust pipe and a gas tank?

Britain is the only racism-free society in the world ... with a government report to prove it ... so there's no need to apologise when you're from utopia.

Sorry to interrupt the political & ethical debates but here are a few more images of that wonderful country...Its so British to apologise for an interruption.

Finland hosts the Annual Wife Carrying Championships - this is truly a great sport and genuinely glad there is no vets category.

A truly equalitarian sport - mobile phone throwing. I guess if you used a 1980's model it would be the equivalent of the shot put.

IKEA is a Swedish company, not Finnish.
So blue/yellow are not the Finnish colors? And Abba??? Not Finns?
I learn new things here each and every day.


PS: now i understand why they named that utensil-holder "Ordning"; suddenly everything makes sense.

But not the funniest.
Actually they have a good sense of humor. I think they are slow and cautitious in their relation to strangers but once you get closer and befriended they can make you laugh.
I met a Finnish girl once and she is still one of the funniest chicks i have ever met.. Could be an outlier sure but still..

Funny girls are so strange, that they must be Finnish.

Finnish people have a thing about giving away buckets, free buckets if you do this that or the other and when a new store opens people will stand in line to get, you guessed it, the free bucket..
To stand in line Aka to queue, is quite a thing, so you can put it on your bucket list.
What about your standing in life, your IQ. Now i finish.

I’m totally lost. My IQ needs an upgrade.

I don’t see a reason why women can’t have an equal voice in society and enjoy their sexuality while still embracing their feminine side and female nature. In fact, I think it is very healthy for a society to have a balance between male and female perspectives. Go to Copenhagen and you will see that the Danish women don’t look and act like men.



While cultural narratives channel and interpret much of human behavior, human biology can’t be superseded. Much of human behavior that seems complex can be better understood by thinking of our primitive ancestors living in small groups. This explains the in-group (us) versus out-group (them) dynamic often used in politics to divide people with fear and loathing. It explains defining people by hierarchies and tendencies to submit to authority. We are not actively aware of these drives, but they shape the narratives of our consciousness.

When it comes to sexuality, humans can’t escape the evolutionary drives that predate civilization and all our cultural narratives. Men want to spread their seed and women have to carry the baby. Women tend to be less innately promiscuous.. The pill and contraception have given humans more sexual freedom, but women cross-culturally tend to be more selective about who and how many to have sex with, and take one-night stands less lightly. Of course, there are individual variations and exceptions.

Anyway, that’s only how I see things.
I very much agree with your first two paragraphs. Well said.
