From self-experience, the app, however, assumes you want to date someone who is on the same side of the spectrum in education and ambition. Despite this advanced matching technique, for some this may not work; pairing people based on institutional levels and fields is not necessarily a measure of compatibility since other factors must be taken into account like personality. Besides, it gets monotonous talking about GPAs and study habits. Hinge takes the notion that birds of a feather flock together and completely runs with it. Whatever happened to opposites attract?
In a blender, purée the watermelon, peaches, mint and lemon zest. Fill 8-10 large popsicle molds about 2/3 of the way full with this mixture. Divide berries into the molds and lay one kiwi slice in each mold, making sure the berries and kiwi are covered by the puree. Insert popsicle sticks and freeze for at least 6-8 hours.
Perhaps the KEY is not to allow anyone to define who you are by avoiding certain types of social gatherings.Venerable axioms are also quite useless.For example: if "birds of a feather flock together" then why do "opposites attract?" There is a tiresome song by Barbra Streisand that I have grown to detest over the past few decades where she sings, "people who need people are the luckiest people in the world."Not so. People who need other people to validate their existence are the 'unluckiest' people in the world and pathetic.DeCartes once wrote, "I think, therefore I am"...so who needs others to define one's own private world?And the same logic applies to those who stupidly make someone else (or others) responsible for their own happiness.Perhaps Sean Penn said it best in Terrence Mallick's novel and subsequent movie 'A Thin Red Line.'When asked if he ever got lonely, Penn's character replied, "Only when I am around other people."
For those who are engaged in social media, Elon Musk's hostile takeover of Twitter will hopefully provide ample opportunity for all voices to be be heard regardless of whether the postings are offensive, misleading, or outright lies.This is a positive step as everyone has a right to express their opinions and only the card-carrying semi-literate and undereducated people fall prey to undocumented hearsay and/or everything/anything they read on the internet.A truly free opinion-oriented world is free of censorship and gatekeeping moderators regardless of any perceived and/or offensive, non-PC commentaries.Twitter tried to bury Hunter Biden's questionable activities (including his laptop) and this coverup was eventually proven to be contrived misinformation by a biased liberal social media platform.While Fox News, CNN, and MNBC all have their biased opinions and devoted followers, we should simply overlook their sanctimonious blatherings as advertiser sponsored BS, unless we are genuinely incapable of thinking for ourselves.Most people cannot which explains the current situation.
There is a lot of ageism in these comments. There was a time when the elders in a community were considered wise. The elders had the experience of raising children, paying taxes for many years, seeing changes - some good and some bad, of living through hard times and not so hard times, of seeing good leaders and not so good leaders, of living through times of war, times of hardship, times that were fearful and times when life was exciting.Those under the age of 40 have seen very little real life. All they know is relative peace. They have lived with an abundance of almost everything consumable both to eat, to make life easier, and to be entertained with. They know little about being sent off to war, fighting an enemy who look as young as you, as waiting eagerly each day for a letter or telegram from a loved one, when the phone was always the opportunity for a chat, rather than junk calls, and we knew our neighbors as well as we knew our family.Today's youth have great technology, but they are unable to change a tire or cook a simple meal without a freezer or microwave for the most part (some do of course). They don't know about having measles or polio, having to live without antibiotics or MacDonalds. I am pleased like most of us that are older that we do have a life without some of these terrors from the past. But the truth is that those terrors have given us experience that does make us wiser than our youth understand. We were all young once and know what it is like to be young, healthy and full of energy. What the young don't know is how it feels to be older and unheard. We learned from mistakes. The young don't even have the opportunity of making a mistake without it being broadcast all over the internet!I would like us to consider the wisdom that comes from years. Listen to grandparents, they have often done more than the young can possibly imagine. Their experience can be worth hearing and it might be enjoyable to hear also. 2b1af7f3a8
