Ask @Pookeo9:

Is it ever going to be possible for a politician to be successful without first being a consummate liar? Or is this just a fundamental prerequisite?

KeepYourEyesPeeled’s Profile PhotoLucas
It's always possible. The issue with politics is that it's ripe for people who are pathological lairs. People have short-term memories. Tell them something and they forget the next week. Politicians only want your votes; they do so by sucking up. They suck up like the bosses son to get a higher position via nepotism.

How can I turn all my weakness and disadvantages into strengths and advantages?

KeepYourEyesPeeled’s Profile PhotoLucas
Work on them. Sounds like a vague generic answer, but it's the only one you can make a weakness a strength. One of my weaknesses was opening up to people without feeling like a burden. That's been slowly changing because I realize it's not a big deal. I mean you don't send a 40 page novel to someone; you just open up subtly, and proceed accordingly.
It gets easier as time goes on.

Extremely rich people are often criticized for their handling of their fortunes though they personally earned it honestly. Please be more specific than ” make the world a better place” what would you spend it on were you in their position?

KeepYourEyesPeeled’s Profile PhotoLucas
I would start an international collaboration where every ultra-wealthy person gives away 10% of their net worth. The intention is to give the money to those who need it more. I wouldn't give the money to the government. It would be given to newly created international organization called the "International Wealth Fund" or the IWF. The purpose of the IWF is to give to those who are in low-income houses, those who are homeless, those who are in need of mental health treatment, and so on.

Has childhood trauma carried over to when I grew up? Sometimes when I feel annoyed with my life, the past comes back to remind me.

KeepYourEyesPeeled’s Profile PhotoLucas
Yes. If we don't deal with such traumas it will impact us in the adult life. Our neglect can manifest itself into destructive behaviour to purposely get attention. Our lack of love can result in us feeling cold. Our unstable household can result in us not knowing what normal is, and doing things that "normal" people would likely not do.

Why are African leaders so selfish to themselves?

KeepYourEyesPeeled’s Profile PhotoLucas
Because they can get away with all the power. Dictators are ripe on the continent for a reason. Coup D'états are as common as the common cold. Corruption is as extensive as the underground land of Atlantis. The DRC should be the most prosperous nation on the planet, but instead, it's one of the poorest. It's got trillions of dollars of untapped minerals, but the leaders only want the minerals for themselves. They'll never give a penny to the people. They should. They won't.

Hello!!! 🤣 What's happening

Just wondering why some Sporcle quizzes accept "Cabo Verde" without accepting "Cape Verde". Yes, it's proper to spell it Cabo, but not every English speaker says it in such a manner. It's like Ivory Coast. It's technically Cote D'Ivoire, but Ivory Coast is also generally acceptable. Sometimes we think we've typed in the wrong answer, only to find out it was right all along. We just needed to find the alternative pronunciation.

Do you think that people go crazy, or do you just think that some people were never all there?

KeepYourEyesPeeled’s Profile PhotoLucas
Some people go crazy without having any control over it. That's when they start taking medication, going to therapy, maybe even having to go to a mental institution for a bit. However I also believe that people can go crazy with having control.
So maybe one day they decide they're going to be flamboyant, they’ll be super busy, they’ll be a megalomaniac of some sorts. Then the next day they're going to be quiet as a mouse. Then the day after they'll drive all day long to places they've never been to before while singing in the car the whole time. This doesn't mean they've lost their mind. Because they can still control their mind. They're just experimenting with different states of mind to see the results. They know what they're doing, so they have control over their mind.
It's like people who claim to be psychic. Everyone would say they're schizophrenic, but I don't believe that's true. A schizophrenic has no control over their mind. A psychic does. So what's really the difference? The difference is control. Which goes back to my previous point about losing your mind, this only happens when you lose all control of everything. It's like driving an automatic car and the brakes stop working. You're going to crash at some point.
Nobody is born insane. Just like how nobody is born evil. These things happen in life and everyone reacts differently to them. Someone laughs, someone cries, someone yells, someone dies. The same thing happens but 4 different reactions occur. Which one is the truth? None of them. Because the truth is not applicable to something that’s susceptible of being perceived in an infinite amount of ways.

😎 What's up?

Just going with the flow. It's 12:45 am but I don't feel tired. Not one bit. Leafs lost in a shootout but damnit that was a good game. Props to the Wild. I love Minnesota. They're basically Canadians. They love hockey, they have cold weather, they have multiple sports teams, AND, they're used to pain.
Us Toronto sports fans have lots in common with Minnesota sports fans.
From the Vikings losing 4 Super Bowls and countless NFC Championship games, to the North Stars relocating to Dallas - a non-traditional hockey market. From the failed Kevin Garnett era, to the megafail of Kevin Love, to the epic fail of Wiggins-Towns, to the Twins forgetting how to win in the playoffs.
Compare that to Toronto sports. Oh god. From the Leafs' Cup drought, to the... well, the Jays have won 2 championships. So have the Raptors. The Argos have won Grey Cups. The Rock are a lacrosse dynasty. I think the Leafs have caused so much pain they can be compared to NBA, NHL, NFL and MLB teams combined :P

I get upset so easily and get depressed really quickly. How can I change this? People say to let yourself cry, but that just makes me feel worse.

KeepYourEyesPeeled’s Profile PhotoLucas
Well yeah, crying helps for a bit. Until you're bawling every second of the day. If it goes beyond normalcy, then it can become depression. We need to find a way to stray away from that possibility, so that we don't find ourselves having to climb out of a hole that you can't even dig yourself out of.
My suggestion: find out your triggers. We get upset for a reason. Now, when we look at what causes us to get upset, is it really for a GOOD reason? Like, if we get upset because we didn't get a message in 15 minutes.. re-think that strategy. You're giving too much power away over nothing. Or, let's say that a friend says no to hanging out with you. Again, normal to feel upset, but is it for a GOOD reason?
Find out if you're getting upset for a good reason, and go from there. The goal is to look at things differently.

Why is life so shitty

Because you assume it.
We are prophets of the word.
No need to read books to know that.
Just look at your life.
Everything has unfolded like you wanted.
Is that not the prophecy?
Have I gone mad?
Are you going mad?
What if all of this is fake?
But all of it is real?
Life is what we make of it.
Stop assuming the bad,
And begin to assume the good.
You know what happens when you want bad,
So what's a little good gonna hurt?

What can I do when I want to be healthy and live my best life, but I end up staying on my phone 24/7 and procrastinating?

KeepYourEyesPeeled’s Profile PhotoLucas
Start utilizing your phone for productive reasons and then go from there. Sometimes if I feel like I'm spending too much time online, I'll think about how I can use the internet to be more productive. There's a gargantuan amount on here that you could literally spend 6 uninterrupted years learning stuff. So, why not take an hour to learn something new? It could help you out in the long-term, and it can make you feel better.
I refuse to vilify technology because technology is not to blame for mindless scrolling or procrastination. That's on the individual. Technology is actually trying to help us. Go on YouTube and you can find all kinds of tutorials for FREE. That's just one website. There's hundreds of other websites that contain similar content.
You think the internet might be small, but it's gigantic. You may think it looks like the Vatican City but it's actually Marianas Trench. So, take advantage of it. It's Ineffable at what one can learn without spending a single penny, and how few take advantage of such extraordinarily magnificent things.

How do people go from being poor to becoming wealthy?

KeepYourEyesPeeled’s Profile PhotoLucas
First it starts with their mind then it becomes their reality. I can't think of a single wealthy person who is poor in their mind. At some point they're going to legitimately become poor. Take Mike Tyson as an example. He made so much money and then pissed it all the way. I can guarantee you he felt poor and he dwelled in it long enough that he had to declare bankruptcy.
Humans are experts at self-fulfilling prophecies. Those who are not careful will fatalistically have the same things happen to them. Unsurprisingly, they don’t know a thing about the root cause of their poverty. They think that if they have all these material items, that they won’t need to feel poor, but you can still be wealthy and poor at the same time. Just like how you can be poor and rich at the same time. You have nothing in the bank yet feel like a billion bucks. Or you can have a billion bucks in the bank yet feel like an irrelevant nobody who’s full of nothingness.

Is being happy the purpose of being alive?

KeepYourEyesPeeled’s Profile PhotoLucas
It is. I believe life is meant to be enjoyed whenever possible. We're given the blessing to be on this planet for a reason. We defied the odds of escaping the womb. If that's not magical enough, consider the fact that we’re the only proven forms of life in this universe. I don’t know about you, but that’s splendiferous.
This planet is full of exquisitely natural beauty. Ravishing like Rick Rude. Magnetic like a magnet. Exotically beautiful like Emma Watson. Alluring like your high school crush.
