Whether Love is true or not » Post #4

Sun Dec 25, 2016 21:17 in General Talk

No such thing as true love.

There are stages of love and a variety of types of love.

Love for father. Love for mother. Love for your maker. Love for your children. Love for your spouse.
Love for pets. Love for friends.

All love is different and all love has different stages.

The age of loneliness is killing us » Post #16

I still think that people do what they want to do, in regards to loneliness.

In other words, I think there is more ways to NOT be lonely today than ever before in history.

I look at sites like Facebook and think how great that would have been to have when I was in
school. All the kids I grew up with, how we could have stayed in contact so easily. Now I can't
locate hardly any of them.

A really sad story is a girl that was a best friend in school and I located her younger brother on
Facebook a few years ago. Right over in Memphis, just an hour drive from me. I was so thrilled.
I contacted him at Facebook, told him who I was, told him I had been looking for Debbie and how
is she, etc. He replied that she had died a couple of years ago. We grew up by Chicago but she
was originally from Memphis. I couldn't help but think how near we lived to each other and the
times I went to the Malls in Memphis.

The internet brings a lot of people together. The days are gone when one had to wait a week to
get a letter from a loved one or a friend. Now people can see each other over the internet.

We didn't have video camera's or even a good camera when I married and had children. Today,
people take hundreds of pictures in a week of their children, family, friends, etc. No more waiting
for pictures to be developed. Although there were video camera's when I married, few people
had them and most were expensive and weighed a ton. Now people can take videos with their
iPhones, smart phones, tablets, etc.

There is more things to do today, than ever before. More museums, more amusement parks,
more theaters, etc. Even if you're like me, living in a rural area, it doesn't take long to go where
the action is. In addition, there are more church's, volunteer organizations, community activities, etc.

I have a Bachelors of Science degree in Rehabilitation. There are more resources and activities today
than ever before for those with disabilities and more legal rights than ever before. The Americans
with Disabilities Act is a large part of making sure businesses make accommodations for the disabled.
There is 100% more acceptance today of people with disabilities. Everything from Downs Syndrome,
Autism, etc. In addition, those without limbs have more opportunity today than ever before. Those
with mental handicaps also have more activities and socialization.

For the single people, whatever their age, looking for marriage, the internet has some dating sites
that appear to be very good at match making. I know several people that have met their mate online
and are happy as a lark.

I know it isn't the case for everyone but I really do believe that most the people out there that say
they are lonely, it is because they choose to be. I think people get in a rut some times. I know I
have before. You can get lazy in your relationships and your lack thereof. I don't mean that just
a partnership type way as I mean that also with family, friends, or potential friends.

I think the bad often overshadows the good. It is a different world but you know what, it has always
been a different world. If you are 20 years old, guess what? It's going to be a different world when
you are 25, 30, 40, 50, 60, etc. The world is always changing.

I guess it depends on your definition of loneliness.

It seems there are people that think they need to be surrounded by people.
As someone said, people can be in a crowd and yet be lonely.

I think whomever wrote that, must be lonely.

Personally, I think the opposite is true.

'Loneliness' is largely a state of mind.

Well it's Christmas eve, maybe you might want to watch some of the holiday movies.

I always watch these about now:

Christmas Vacation - Never gets old

It's a Wonderful Life - I love Jimmie Stewart and this one is great in color

Christmas Story - Actually wrote by a man that grew up the same place I did but a few years older than I.

Arsenic and Old Lace - One of my favorite movies of all time.

Yep, the Jane Doe movie is not super scary but it is different and I guess a lot
of that is due to the good actors and great cinema filming. Whew! It's a dossey, tho. :lol:

Yep and every generation has it's actors that they more or less grow up with.
I think those movies with your favorite actors stick with you no matter how old you get.

I prefer watching movies that I watched when I was a kid and even many movies that
came out before I was born. I prefer color but I watch many old black and white movies.

I grew up watching actors such as Steve McQueen, Natalie Wood, Jerry Lewis, Dean Martin,
Johnny Carson (talk show host), Lee Marvin, Ann Margaret, Lee Van Cleef, Clint Eastwood,
Charles Bronson, Jack Palance, Sam Elliott, Jimmie Stewart....and lots more of the old
actors of which more are long since deceased.

At this time of year, I like to watch Danny Kaye.....he is one of my favorite all time comedy actors.
Love the 'court jester'.

Yes I saw the movie....fugitive. It was a good movie but a little hard to watch Harrison Ford
playing that part. I grew up watching the series on television and it was an excellent tv series.
Sooo it was not as good as the original series cast. Primarily:

David Janssen
Barry Morse

I think all the young and old ladies was in love with David Janssen.
And Barry Morse, most hated man.....great actor!

Look up the original series some time. You may be able to find some of the programs from the original
series. You'll see what I mean if you watch one or two of them.

Yes 'Frequency' is a good movie. It is gripping and has a great plot. It is a movie that
really makes you think about time travel, our existence, and how the tiniest decisions
can make huge differences in our lives here and in the future.

Personally, I didn´t upgrade to the "new" 3DS XL because I already owned the "old" 3DS XL and there are not many exclusives for the "new" one.

Tomorrow I will gift myself another 3DS game with the weird name "7th Dragon III Code: VFD". A Japanese RPG and I didn´t read much about it but I am hoping for a less-known gameplay gem here.

Wish you a nice Christmas.

Can i just totally agree here :D

This is a must play Valerie,A skull kid get's mad and cast a curse on the moon,you got 72 hours to save the world before the moon crashes and end all life.

Sorry for being a Zelda nerd :D

So far I am just running around in circles and the world ended once already. :mrgreen:

I think I spent too much time trying to fly over to the big blue balloon. I got sort of fascinated
with jumping out of flowers. Only thing is I usually would crash into a wall. Finally I realized I
could 'shoot' the balloon from the ground. After I did that, the world ended.

Needless to say, I haven't managed to get very far yet. I couldn't even find any of the five kids.
I did keep trying to collect rupees. I can't buy anything because I am broke. :?

I wouldn't even watch that one!

I read the info and the reviews and decided that 'Human Centipede' was just something I did
not want to see. There is also 'Human Centipede 2'.

Eric Roberts is probably going to go down in history as an actor that has been in more movies
than anyone else ever. I think I had noticed he played in the sequel.

Some of the lame scary movies are ok to watch. Just something to watch when there is nothing
else. There's a lot of very lame and crazy movies that are not worth even attempting to watch
and for me, 'Human Centipede' ranks with those.

I like scary movies that have a good plot, not disgusting, and not a bunch of slasher stuff.
