Have you ever thought about happiness? What exactly is happiness?

People talk about achieving happiness. But happiness can be a byproduct of striving for some other goal.

Or, for some, happiness can happen as a byproduct of other activity, such as striving for some other goal in a new way that is more efficient (or more pleasing to you) than the way you worked towards the goal in the past.

The Dolly Llama wrote a book about happiness.

And some of you may know that the Dolly Llama is named "Tina".

  thegoodanarchist: VEAL CUTLETS WITH ONIONS

Take half a border of bacon, a half. Dress the very thin lemon peel, and when the stew gently in proportion of the vegetable can cook some milk boils, then pour it out.


Make a little bechamel sauce, and put them till fins, which you buy fish rissoles, but, after the paste, lay the top some hard-boiled eggs; melt a pan, or three quarters of medium sized apples, which are golden, serve at least before serving trim it at a mixture with butter, a shower. Let us suppose an egg.

From <offramp>! IMO it is great for a laugh. I do have a sense of humor that is off the beaten path, though.

  Big Pawn: The <Clownel> is a pure troll.
Premium Chessgames Member
  thegoodanarchist: He gets his jollies from venting on Americans. Those who cannot refute him, <HMM> for example, get the full measure of his anger.

Those who can refute him, send him scurrying, or at least quiet him down for a while.

Still, the most *satisfying* part of it, is <!>

America keeps on being America, much to his chagrin, and all of his ranting won't make one iota of impact.

[epistemology is the investigation of what distinguishes justified belief from opinion]

Premium Chessgames Member
  Big Pawn: Yes, that is what epistemology is and it's fascinating. There is much more to it than first meets the eye and there's been a lot of work done in this area for thousands of years.

Epistemology is about what it really means to know something and how we know that we really know it, and how to go about knowing something. It also investigates interesting questions like, do we *have* knowledge at all?

We run into many interesting words and ideas when investigating epistemology, like the different theories of truth, postmodernism, skepticism, a priori knowledge, phenomenology, empiricism, logical positivism, verificationism, the falsification principle, the structure of justification, the limits of pure reason, rationality, properly basic beliefs and so on.

As soon as you think you understand something about epistemology, all we have to do is ask why one more time and we are lead down another rabbit hole, which is how you run across all the topics I just listed above.

Most people can't really think about "what it means to know something". They don't know how to think about such a thing. They hold the question in mind for 2 or 3 minutes and dismiss it, but there's a lot to know!

The horse says "Because I don't have nightmares any more."

The bartender asks "What's wrong with that?"

The horse says "They all went back to their husbands."

Jun-15-17  User not found: Messi magisterial goals

Check out the goals from 6:00 and 7:50

The greatest football player in the history of the sport. He's just SPECIAL!

Premium Chessgames Member
  thegoodanarchist: thanks <unf>!
Jun-16-17  User not found: My pleasure TGA. I think it's about time you told BP you're a Messlim, lol.

The goal at 0:26.." Remember the name, Messi. At the age of 17 scores his first goal for Barcelona!"

I remembered, lol.

Btw.. Unless Messi does something unbelievably spectacular for club and country before November when the ballon d'or voting begins, Ronaldo should win by a distance which will make it 5 ballon d'ors each!! Ronaldo is 3 years older than Messi so I'd put my bank balance on Messi getting that 6th and retiring from football in 2022 after the WC because as long as he's fit that will be his last World Cup. Next year is his big and final chance as a "young man", he's dragged the Argies to the final once and they've proved if Messi's not having a good game they crumble. Maradona was 34 in his last WC, Baggio, Romario, Zico, Zidane and other players of similar stature and position were roughly that age so it's looking like he's the modern George Best international wise... And that's why I posted that link above. The 2nd goal at 7:50 is Best, very reminiscent of George Best in the late 60s, gliding across a pitch like the Somme like its a tennis court!

I do not mind. I support free speech. I am a huge supporter of, and believer in, the Bill of Rights in our US Constitution.

<AI> embraced Islam because the authoritarian nature of that religion appeals to the arrogance and the control freak in him.

However, he has no accomplishments to qualify himself as an authority on anything, (other than his excellent vocabulary). Couldn't re-up in the Navy, couldn't go the full 4 years in university.

So he is willing to pay money to give himself a forum in which he can make rulings on posts at his whim.

If he can ever impose Sharia on even a tiny little section of America, he will gladly do so. (Since he believes he has the right to decide what *other people* find offensive.)

So while free speech is under threat at <AI>'s forum, for reasons stated above, your post is safe here.
