Sending positive vibes to you all right now. 🌸 Describe a good feeling, pleasant situation, or happy event that happened recently which made life a little brighter! Could be anything, no matter how big or small.  leigh. ☯
I recently won an Amazon gift card, ate a pizza, and took a long walk in the park. I think all three possess some merit.

1) Greece : What do you think about the condition of the country right now? What do you really think about Greece and the Greeks? 2) What's your position on the death penalty? 3) What do you think of today's youth? What are the defining qualities of today's youth? Thank you.  Lucas
I haven't the slightest idea what these questions have to with one another or why you seem so eager to ask them all in a hail of bullet points, but I can say that I have a variety of opinions on all of the above. If you'd like to ask a question in the singular, then be my guest. Thank you.
Q#2: Do you believe that all prescriptions are necessary to treat certain illnesses? Along the same lines, do you think pharmaceutical companies have too much influence over doctors and hospitals?  leigh. ☯
I have no doubts that the pharmaceutical industry exists to protect its own interests as any industry does. Sickness is an industry itself as far as drug manufacturing is concerned, though its necessity is obvious to anyone whose wellbeing depends on it, as many in my family do in various ways.
I believe the generalizations made about big pharma are often disingenuous but not unfounded – people often seem to make them based in politics than science out of some misguided distrust of government. Misdiagnosis is a greater killer than pharmaceuticals themselves and I would believe they're motivate by many things, money included.
Our drug culture isn't an easy one to reform, but it's solutions no doubt lie in a collaborative effort of better informed patients and a more discerning public.

Hey all! ^__^ Hope you're all having a pleasant day. Q#1: How often do you find yourself going against your morals/principles, despite your better judgment (e.g. letting a friend get away with something you know is wrong, turning a blind eye to an injustice, etc.)? Why do you think that is?  leigh. ☯
I don't find myself confronting any serious ethical dilemmas often at all. I sometimes deal with combating bad habits (i.e. not exercising, eating right, flossing, etc.), but things largely inconsequential in and of themselves on any single day. Even the vaguest moral problem I have on average is dealing with an occasional troll, whose solution is my friendly neighborhood block button.

If you had to live a week without any Internet access, what would you do to keep yourself busy?  Toronto Lydia
I recall flying back east to visit my grandparents in Ohio for several days without one wifi hotspot in range. With all the touristy sights we took in, it didn't take long for time to fly by without sitting in front of a single screen. When I did have down time, I enjoyed looking at their countless American antiques, some of which go back centuries.
I don't know what I would've done for an entire week anywhere else. I suppose I could always read some actual print, but that'd only make me want to Google more things out for reference/curiosity. In that case, I assume I'd only be crafting ways to get Internet access until I got it back.

so you definitely wouldn't view that situation as a trap? I asked someone this question a few days ago and he insisted that I was an idiot for saving the baby lol.
Well, I suppose that proves how naive I am. I don't usually expect to be living the plot of a horror movie and I doubt I'd take the risk of abandoning an infant on the side of the road should I be wrong.
Assuming I had a flashlight or something, I'd be as cautious as I'd normally be on a dark road alone. Otherwise I'd have to do the right thing. I say that as the perfect prey, I guess, but it's easy to dismiss anything when it's pure theoretics.

If you were driving down a dark highway where you were the only car for miles and saw a dirty-but-not-injured-looking baby crawling on the side of the road with nothing close by to indicate where the baby was from or what happened, what would you do?
Call 911 or its local equivalent, keep the baby in a safe place, make sure it's warm/cool until the proper authorities came. I'm not sure what you're implying about an injured baby beyond me probably being more at a loss for what to do besides basic first aid.

Q#3: Do you believe you would have turned out to be a different person if you grew up in a country other than your own? What do you think would have changed?  leigh. ☯
I suspect my life wouldn't be the same in any shape or form when genetics account for only so much. I'd just guess that my personality would differ from experience more than anything else, though that'd likely transcend nationality.
