What sort of religion did you have in mind Megile? I might be in the market for a new outlook. Might it involve deflowering maidens by any chance? Just curious.

Certainly..if you have the time and inclination....either learn a musical instrument or a foreign language.....but have to really want to...not just mess around...or you will just waste your time...

If you learn how to meditate properly you never need to be bored..

I have heard it said that only boring people get bored....

If I have some time on my hands I just pick one from my collection of Nevil Shute books and read it again

Works over rated. I'm not going to get a real job, I'm going to uni get a decent qualification to fall back on. Then just become a writer or open a book shop with a mate, drink wine all the time, eat tasty food, go to nice pubs, and spend my time chasing skirts. Oh yeah I might get a rustic canal boat and restore it as well.

Anything else is bull****

No my parents have sod all money, they're not paying a dime for university...I'm going to get in massive debt because of it. I'm just good at making it myself without putting much effort in. I just got my hands on a 0 percent credit card, and made a tasty 4 grand profit buying in some rare mountain bikes from the states and selling them off.

The above are my goals for when I'm in my late 20s, perfectly achievable I just have to put the effort in and set myself up now. Not that I'm lazy, I just like having my own time to do things in life I want to, and I hate and I mean actually hate being told what to do by someone who is 'better than me' (boss).

I played space trading games like Elite, and X2 The Threat as a kid. It taught me I can make but loads starting from Zero, then once you get so far all you have to do is sit back and do nothing.

As I said earlier, I just made 4k by sending off for a piece of plastic that is all (far less effort than turning up for work). I used it wisely. Now I have 4k which I can reinvest and make even more money out of. Etc Etc Etc Etc Etc. I aim to get enough to have 10 k (2k of that is going to be my 0 percent student overdraft) in a high interest account, and enough money to keep on making more.

Until I have a house without being tied to a mortgage.

Laziness can cause disease, judging from some lazy people's houses I have been in.

Dogsh-t mines liberally deposited on the manky carpet, the sink full to the edge with dirty dishes, cockroaches running around like pets. Don't even dare go into the bathroom if you value your health.

Chronic laziness is not a disease, it is a conscious decision to do the least amount possible. They tend to rely on other people's generosity for their maintenance. They know what the right thing to do is, they just don't do it. To call it a disease would be absolving the lazy individual of responsibility, and the only respect they receive is from others of their ilk.

If all people were to have been lazy since the dawn of time, the human race would have died out long ago. They would never have got up off their lazy butts to make the tools to be able to hunt game, and too lazy to get out and forage for food they needed for survival.

Maybe its because I grew up around people who were born in the late 1800's and the early 1900's, (considered blue collar people and farmers for the most part) that I have nothing but respect for a person who puts in hard, honest day's work. It really doesn't matter what this person does, as long as there is something constructive to show for it at the end of the day, and they're not causing hurt at someone else's expense when they do it.

Lazy people don't get any respect from me at all, especially if they are capable of providing for themselves, but live on someone else's dime.

thats true but you know what my father says:

if the greeks hadnt had slaves they wouldnt have advanced so much

do you think if i worked as a waiter id think of building a reactionless engine or develope an exercise to cause enlightenment

In this example, you are putting the cart before the horse. It was their masters who were the architects and inventors. Would it have made any difference if the "slaves" were to be transformed into a highly paid, well treated, and well respected workforce of craftsmen, and the "masters" become bosses and supervisors? Barring the injustice of slavery, the results would have been the same.

I think that is merely an excuse to not be self supporting if one is capable of doing so. A lot of people who are of limited means will become part time waiters, etc., so they can be able to pay their way through an education in whatever they desire to do or become.

There is a definite difference between daydreaming, and doing. If one has the drive, they will combine their designs (that started as dreams and ideas) and physically bring those ideas into reality.

There are many examples of people starting out small. Look at Henry Ford. He started from average means, and managed to develop his dreams into reality while holding down a job working for someone else:

"Henry Ford, born July 30, 1863, was the first of William and Mary Ford's six children. He grew up on a prosperous family farm in what is today Dearborn, Michigan. Henry enjoyed a childhood typical of the rural nineteenth century, spending days in a one-room school and doing farm chores. At an early age, he showed an interest in mechanical things and a dislike for farm work."

"In 1879, sixteen-year-old Ford left home for the nearby city of Detroit to work as an apprentice machinist, although he did occasionally return to help on the farm. He remained an apprentice for three years and then returned to Dearborn. During the next few years, Henry divided his time between operating or repairing steam engines, finding occasional work in a Detroit factory, and over-hauling his father's farm implements, as well as lending a reluctant hand with other farm work. Upon his marriage to Clara Bryant in 1888, Henry supported himself and his wife by running a sawmill."

In 1891, Ford became an engineer with the Edison Illuminating Company in Detroit. This event signified a conscious decision on Ford's part to dedicate his life to industrial pursuits. His promotion to Chief Engineer in 1893 gave him enough time and money to devote attention to his personal experiments on internal combustion engines.

"These experiments culminated in 1896 with the completion of his own self-propelled vehicle-the Quadricycle. The Quadricycle had four wire wheels that looked like heavy bicycle wheels, was steered with a tiller like a boat, and had only two forward speeds with no reverse."

When people have ambition, and the will to see their dreams come true, they will most likely succeed. Unfortunately, some folks want to have it handed to them, and feel entitled to be carried upon the shoulders of others. Most people will need a helping hand at some point in their lives. I have no problem doing this for healthy individuals, as long as it is temporary. If the situation is an actual, provenable disability, then I am willing to see my money go towards this person's maintenance.


im not a parasite im valuable since there must be tenths on persons in the world working in what i work for free

If you were a physically capable member of a small tribe in a hunter/gatherer world, how long do you think you would stay within the tribe if you were not a physically contributing member?

I daydream free of charge as well. I would hate to think that someone would have to pay for something that never will come to fruition. (Heh. Sounds like government beaurocracy, "hard at work". http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/winky.gif)

Yeah, but those were the greeks, not the geeks. You have no slaves, raaaaid. And, not being aristocrats, in ancient Greece you and your dad would have been pulling from a plow in the lands of Pericles, who would give a sh*t about your intellectual traits.

That is a good reason for you to work as a waiter, raaaid. BTW, you think all waiters are brainless dudes just interested in serving you Coke, don't you? Unless you really think that brain is in your center of gravity, and the fatter your ars*, the bigger your IQ.

Doing useless things for free is worth enough, raaaaid. About being a parasite, well, Aristotle paid for his own slaves and beans. Living on the expense of others has a name, amd it's not 'causing enlightenment'.
