"Death is a theory, not a fact. ...approached ...open mind."

If there is one fact, obvious above all others, it's that we're all going down. This is so distasteful to some that they are more than willing to build a mystic-entire to deny it. Kind hearts, bad basis on which to make decisions.

If God exists, (and I'm aware of the warnings and the dangers of "reading God's mind") he must surely be badly disappointed at our eagerness to heap hardship upon misery on the most disadvantaged among us in the name of supply and demand. Labor being the commodity that it is.

But then who am I to judge George Bush? Eh?

Twisted Darwinism.

Well, theologically,nobody really ever dies: they go either one place or the other! Did you ever here the proverb,death is like a candle-you blow it out because the light has come. Grin

Wonderful! Greet the day and say,

I'm thankful to be "A-L-I-V-E"

...but Death is the partner of Life. Whether both a theory, a fact or fantasy, whether God is involved or not --- A.Einstein, C. Darwin, B. Pascal etc. have all ranted about this in the past.

I don't think anybody should.

Now you?re addressing an X-factor, Chromosome,
Who exercises with a vacuum and a broom.

In the bowl, sumptuous Agaricus Campestris
And have selectively removed Amanita Muscaria.
Delightful fish caught in a mesh,
In the dish he garnished.

A batch of unknown Y shroomses
?Delightfully Now Responded?.

Where have you been?

for your lack of acknowledgment that the whole neo philosophy, and-I-mean-the-whole-bloody-thing-entire, of economics, hinges on the effect of barely tolerable pressure on physical labor:

Dem Duct-Suckers

Look at dem duct-suckers,
Ain't dey sweet?
Suckin' dem ducts
And disguising dey feet!

Crossin' dem t's and dottin' dem i's,
Nobody ask
Why we needs all dem lies.

Look at dem duct-suckers.
Ain't dey complete?
Paint's on da walls
And from da ceiling comes heat.

Tomorrow I have jury duty. What'a ya think of that? Want'a sit before me?

I have NO -- as in "N" "O" -- clue what you are talking about with either of these two responses.

I asked a simple question, didn't state an opinion. I'll now state my perception is that you have a hangup about physical labor being the only thing worth compensating. Feel free to set me right about that.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
