  • Is it normal that I can't read books?

    I really want to read non fiction books to increase my knowledge, especially those dummies books for a layman like me. But I just don't have the patience to read 3-5 hundred pages. Are there any tips for me?

    the slave owner and his family acted as the slave's surrogate family. he provided his slaves an occupation and career, a sense of purpose, job security, free medical care, and a place to live when he got old. most slaves would have lived cruel, homeless existences and short lives without their master to care... show more

  • Does knowledge lead to suffering?

    "Whoever increases his knowledge merely increases his heartache" "He who learns must suffer" and "Ignorance is bliss" are all quotes that in varying degrees say the same thing, knowledge leads to suffering. I've been thinking about these quotes since yesterday.. How correct are... show more
    "Whoever increases his knowledge merely increases his heartache" "He who learns must suffer" and "Ignorance is bliss" are all quotes that in varying degrees say the same thing, knowledge leads to suffering. I've been thinking about these quotes since yesterday.. How correct are these statements? I would say that they in some ways they are true, however if we don't experience pain and suffering then pleasure and joy are surely meaningless, and while knowledge might lead to pain, surely we should welcome all knowledge? I'm just rambling, but I'm interested to know others thoughts.

  • Must you finish reading a book even when you find it boring?

    Best answer: Absolutely not, unless it's required for some purpose like school or employment. I have the 50-page rule. If a book cannot trap and hold my attention in 50 pages, I can quit it if I choose to. For gigantic books over 750 pages, I make it my75-page rule. And I've quit a lot of books, since it gives me way... show more

  • Recommendations for a good fantasy/epic read?

    I’ve never been a huge fan of fantasy but I try to explore different genres just to break up the monotony or at the very least, I try to read what’s popular just to keep up with movies and whatnot.

    I’ve never been a huge fan of fantasy but I try to explore different genres just to break up the monotony or at the very least, I try to read what’s popular just to keep up with movies and whatnot. As a child, I begrudgingly made my way through the Chronicles of Narnia, grinded out The Hobbit amongst other Tolkien works but just didn’t have it in me to sit through Harry Potter by the time it came around. Now in my mid-twenties I gave fantasy another chance and decided to take on the Game of Thrones series this recent summer. I surprisingly loved it. I know some people say GoT isn’t *exactly* fantasy but I think dragons, frozen zombies, and giants count for something right? XD So any recommendations for fantasy/epic reads similiar to that? Please don’t recommend Harry Potter lol not only do I not believe it is in any way similar to GoT (I could be wrong) but similar or not, I’m simply not interested. I don’t really have any preference, as long as the protagonist is not under age 15. I’ve also read a number of other fantasy novels but I’m doing this on my phone and too lazy to type them out haha so feel free to list whatever comes to mind. If I’ve read it, whatever, if I haven’t then I’ll check it out. Much appreciated.

  • How do you deal with jealousy as an actor?

    Best answer: You should stop acting altogether. You don't have the right personality. Actors get rejected all the time - it's just part of the job. Typically, even a professional actor will get rejected from 99 out of 100 auditions. If you can't be happy for those who get good roles and graciously accept any... show more

    You don't have the right personality.

    If you can't be happy for those who get good roles and graciously accept any roles you DO get, stop trying.
    It's unhealthy for you to feel like this.

  • Why were there such varying survival rates of Jews between occupied countries during WWII?

    Countries such as Germany which I had assumed would have been the most dangerous for Jews had much higher survival rates than much if not most of Eastern Europe. Can anyone explain the reasons behind this?

  • Could the Holocaust happen again?

    Best answer: "Could"? When you ask "could", it's really a non-question. The earth "could" explode five minutes from now. Who can say a thing "could" not happen? A better way to phrase that might be, is it likely? Do factors still exist which when arranged in a certain combination... show more
    Best answer: "Could"? When you ask "could", it's really a non-question. The earth "could" explode five minutes from now. Who can say a thing "could" not happen? A better way to phrase that might be, is it likely? Do factors still exist which when arranged in a certain combination lead to such things? To that I would have to say yes, I think so. These religious extremists would kill all "infidels" if they were in a position to do so. As it is, they butcher their enemies like animals - beheading and so forth.
