MENTOR

I am seriously on the look out for a mature mentor who can help me channelize my incisive intellectual talents and push me back into the depths of mainstream academics because at heart I am a nerd and not a socialite. Till then, it remains a fervent wish. I earnestly want to get out of the dangerous mess I've landed myself in. Maybe, I'll be lucky, soon.

If I ever succeed in the near future in getting my life in proper shape and re-enter the stratosphere of serious academics, I'll enroll at the BARC in Mumbai (IIT sucks at the doc level) or I would simply love to study at MIT, Caltech or UC at Berkeley. I just love being involved in serious academic work, being surrounded by top-notch students and to have inspirational profs to push me to the limits of my capacity.

Many of my classmates from Cathedral School and IIT have studied at MIT, Caltech, UC at Berkeley and Stanford and are doing so well in their respective fields. Well, more good wishes to them to achieve even greater heights, while I rot over here in mental depression/ill-effects of occult. I have no one to help me get out of the serious mess. I am very sad for myself. My life is almost ruined.

I don't wish to talk any more about academics, top notch universities and my former classmates. I am slipping into deeper depression and am feeling ill. I am very sad.

It's also cheap. Many "urban Americans" eat fast food because it's relatively cheap.
Try walking through the produce isle, the meat sections and putting together a dinner for a family vs stopping in at McD's and ordering off the value menu or event he regular menu,
Fresh, healthy food here costs a lot.

, American fast food rules.
I live in a town of 30,000 people and we have one fast food place (if you don't count Subway and Dunkin Donuts). That's exactly one more fast food place than I need 300 days of the year. I'm no health nut but eating McDonald's make me very, very thirsty. That can't be a good sign.

I think it sxcks. I would go anywhere else. If you don't have 5-10 minutes for someone to make you a real lunch, you probably don't have time to eat lunch. We are just addicted to sugar/fat and salt. And we're cheap. And yes, in a hurry.

If that's true, we need more of it, perhaps due to our everyday habits.

In Europe people ride bikes more and walk more. We sit around and feed our fat cells.

In Hong Kong I remember the old folks all walking in the early morning and doing exercise in public. Mid-level section.

Now I've been around a little too and we are FAT!!

Guessing you've never been down south? Mississippi? How about Disney World?

American live in larger houses today than we did in the '70s, own more possessions, take better vacations, eat better food, and live longer,
We are downsizing our houses - can't afford to heat them.

We have a lot of stuff but it's all on credit - we have a low savings rate.

Europeans travel much more than we do, esp around Europe and they come over here to go shopping. Americans are much more narrow and. provincial.

Typical American vacation: a Carnival cruise or Disney World. Duhhhhhh! Most of us are bran dead idiots!:)))

Just ask Joel!

But she didnt stand up to take credit - it was attributed to her by those who investigated as to why the rate has dramatically decreased. I guess you are not aware, but she has been rather effectively implementing a nationwide program towards better nutrition in the schools at other places.

I cut out all fast foods 20 plus years ago. It wasnt a conscious decision and as such there was no ideology behind my change of behavior. It just happened as a consequence of lifestyle.(The same for drinking coffee).

HOWEVER, what I discovered afterwords was that I could not go back. Apparently I lost my taste for the sugar, salt, and fat. The few times over the last few years I have tried to eat it, the food tastes repulsive to me. Again, not out ideology, but out of taste.(OTOH I still enjoy pizza, and on occasion the more artfully prepared burger - maybe its the sugar more than the salt and fat that I dont like?).

If you're into burgers, you should try the mushroom burger at Plan B. One of the best burgers I ever had.

Morality has almost everything to do with conflict-resolution, taking a pro-social attitude and the need to feel wanted.

Religion seriously mucks up morality by introducing tribal affinity, a false air of superiority, superstition, genocides, fanaticism and a bargaining attitude.

These days medical studies have shown that praying for patients usually worsens their condition. I knew this all along. Praying for an ill person directs at him the personality defects via energy fields radiated from the bodies of those praying for the speedy recovery of the patient.

The US prison population has increased by over 800% since 1971. Questions: how many are like these men? What do they have in common? See links below.

Prayer has no value either for oneself or when one prayers for others. It's another religious mumbo jumbo.

Pizza and burgers when done right are great!

After hearing/reading so much about Colony Grill, can't say I loved it. I thought Remo's was better.

SHUN EVIL SCRIPTURES

It's dangerous to read evil teachings based on bigotry, genocide, slavery, rape, human sacrifice, inhuman punishments like stoning to death or burying alive a person, baby bashing, cannibalism, incest and other dangerous "revelations" attributed to murderous madmen called patriarchs or prophets that're found in religious scriptures.

Historical research suggests that most of these religious characters are mere figments of imagination but one should still not read religious books teaching evil despite the non-historicity of these religious personalities since such barbaric teachings make a deep impression on the brain and muck up one's force fields that have a deleterious effect on the synaptic patterns which consequently affects one's worldview.

Throw away Torah, NT, Gita and other evil religious scriptures.

rabbee: innocent, according to whom? when i fear you like everyone else on this planet, are all suffering from some kind of evil normalcy bias. when atheists, agnostics, muslims, christians, jews, and other criminals all claim to be innocent. you all self claim to be innocent, in the same manner hitler and stalin claimed to be innocent. as i fear this worlds claims of innocent, are greatly, greatly over exaggerated. when the most innocent you were, was at birth. and was taught some form of normalcy organize corruption, according to the colloquial corruption of your environment. people are taught how to become corrupt, according to the standards of where you live. alleged innocent people, do not kill people they consider innocent. guilty people judge guilty people, as they are judged by the guilty claiming to be innocent.
