Ramen
I notice you picking up nice vocabulary, it suits you . Back in India your parents are proud of you and your newly developed interests/taste.

Wishing you good luck, enjoy your 0.35 $ an hour differential in Australia.

Unrelated, but how did you accumulate $500000 in education? Have
heard of $100000 dept for some med students coming out of med school,
which would be $200k if it was for ya both.

Thank you for that insight. You are right. X years of education counts
for Y, and qualitative factors are not judged. But, so what?
Intellectually, let's get real. There are really very few truly smart
people on the planet. VERY few. In my entire life, I've encountered
one in school. And he had shortcomings. Those with genius who are
well-rounded. Well, my father in academia in a well-situated position
encountered one in his lifetime. I have never met one such
extraordinary person.

Most people, especially those of limited intelligence can't recognize
that smarter people exist. They do, but are extremely rare.

But that's ok. I delight in the more ordinary intellects, particularly
when they reach for more ordianry goals, like social equality and
harmony. Actually, I am quite fond of people I have met with
supposedly "inferior" intellects. I love some mentally retarded people
I have known, as well as many with good hearts and loyal personalities
who I have worked with over the years, though they would themselves
say they are quite ordinary people. And I see nothing wrong with being
ordinary, but good. And I am quite happy with people who are.

Sure, I strive for intellectual challenges. But you need to also
understand that I love many ordinary people. And it can be a great
intellectual challenge to help them get through life. So, you see, the
challenge is a bit unusual, but very rewarding and real. I cannot say
how many times I've held the lives of these ordinary people in my
hands. And I can tell you the rewards are great and the pain of
failure immense (and I blame myself for failure far more than they
would blame me).

Like I've posted beore. I've cleaned bathrooms as well as managed
companies. And I have good friends from everywhere. Maybe I should
have made that clear. I know it seems radical, but the fact that I can
connect with everyone I work with is why I'm so good at what I do. And
it's not insincere, it's real.

But I've reached my limit of tolerance with America and its defective
mindset. I can see disaster coming and I don't care to participate.

Actually, no nation has seriously looked at environmental impacts in
the future. Hell, science hasn't either. To some extent we're all
"idiot sons of assholes". The sooner we all recognize we're not that
smart and in danger, the better.

We're all in danger and letting our kids suck the cock of whatever
chance spurts at us isn't a good strategy. Everyone needs to seriously
look at the future, not just at who is ****ing their ass now.

Yes, it seems Canada isn't all wine and roses in the cities:

Sorry about the language. It put me off reading it later and was
probably not the wisest use of words. It's just that humans have
kicked off one of the great extinctions that have happened in the
entire existence of the earth. It is an obscenity beyond
comprehension, beyond the horrors of the Nazis, beyond anything
imaginable. And it absolutely nauseates me to think most people care
more about the price of gas than the permanent destruction of our
earth through willful neglect. It is likely that humans will soon
exterminate themselves anyway.

Anyway, it's not that I ddin't mean to be extreme or point out the
obscenity of the situation, it's just that it was likely misunderstood
because I didn't say it well.

More I read about your thoughts, more I believe, you should be an enterprenuer.

You are unhappy about ongoing environmental changes. Many of us are equally worried about destruction of our ecology.

Once highly populated asian countries start competing with US , for a proportional share of Energy, I wonder what will happen to energy cost and accelrated deterioration of of our environment.
I dont think a few individuals can stop it. Coming to Canada is no solution either.

Clean fuel is still a far cry. life goes on, people are least likely to shift to bikes/Solar and wind energy.

Enjoy your life, and add value to society,where ever you are comfortable. Best wishes.I appreciate your thoughts.

In my view god has given every one some thing unique. We are mistaken when we believe , we have higher intellect than some one else.

This is an easy one.

Ignore all the negative crap people write, the simple answer is yes, Canada is the best f***ing place to live in the world.

They have great health care, way more Brits than the U.S. (the Midwest anyways), great Brit pubs and I lost count how many times Canada was voted the number 1 country in the world by the U.N.

How do I know this????.....I lived there for 8 years before I had to move the U.S.
