Here are 9 important regrets some old humans have and 28 others which are not that important but some of them are amusing enough to be mentioned.

The important regrets are not traveling to an awesome place,

staying too long in a bad relationship,

not quitting a terrible job soon enough,

spending your youth self-absorbed,

working too much,

not stopping occasionally to savor the moment,

not taking time to develop good contacts and smart networking,

not spending enough time with loved ones,

 and letting yourself be defined by gender roles.

Here is a link to buzzfeed.com for the complete list of regrets.

YOU                                                                      LEAST POWERFUL

If you want to be accurate in blaming someone for the sorry state of the world then start at the top and work your way down to the pawn status which you really have in shaping the important events in this world. Those who have the most money and/or control it are the corrupt overlords of this decadent world.

SOLUTION: The whole world needs a secular moral code to guide it if it is to escape its descent into corrupt debauchery which threatens the survival of humanity on the face of this precious earth. Don’t destroy biodiversity, don’t lie, don’t be inefficient, don’t steal, don’t commit adultery if married, and don’t murder should be taught all impressionable young minds in elementary school so that the pawns of this world are guided by an impulsive just morality which should then eventually filter up the ladders of power to the very top of world leadership. It won’t happen very quickly and will take more than a generation time wise but this is our only hope of realistic just survival for our offspring and our fellow wilderness plants and animals on this precious earth!!!!!!

Gamble: v. to take chances where the objective is getting to a goal which usually has much less than a 50% probability of existing and frequently a profit is hoped for

Here is an excerpt from Livescience which warns that gambling can easily destroy your life.

Gambling, too, seems to be in our genes and hard-wired into our brains, which might explain why such a potentially ruinous behavior is so common.

Even monkeys gamble. A study that measured monkeys’ desire to gamble for juice rewards found that even as potential rewards diminished, the primates acted irrationally and gambled for the chance to get a wee bit more.

A study published in the journal Neuron last year found that almost winning activates win-related circuitry within the brain and enhances the motivation to gamble. “Gamblers often interpret near-misses as special events, which encourage them to continue to gamble,” said Luke Clark of the University of Cambridge. “Our findings show that the brain responds to near-misses as if a win has been delivered, even though the result is technically a loss.”

Other studies have also shown that losing causes gamblers to get carried away. When people plan in advance how much to gamble, they’re coldly rational, a study last year found. But if they lose, rationality goes out the window, and they change the game plan and bet even more.

We like to be complimented and frequently a “thank you” is all that is needed in return. You can compliment humans on appearance, good behavior, ability, ideas, opinions, beliefs, offspring, spouse, friends, and material possessions.

When complimenting be as honest and sincere as possible and don’t just use superlatives such as beautiful, great job, and I love it if you really feel that it is attractive, nice, a good job, like it, and OK but not extraordinarily great. Humans will appreciate an honest and sincere opinion and not an inflated one if they don’t deserve it. If you just use superlatives humans will feel that you are buttering them up and will not respect your opinions in the long duration.

Being honest and sincere with your offspring is just as important and if you say “great job” to everything your offspring do then they will never know or learn the difference between a good job or behavior and a great one. They will soon not want to please you with conscientious effort since your words will have lost truthful discriminating motivational value. They will feel that mom or dad is just a bullshit artist always lavishly praising them for everything that they do no matter how much effort they put into it and no matter what the outcome of the effort, good or bad.

Humans will respect your opinions more if your compliments are more accurate and may even occasionally include some negative remarks such as could be better, nice but not my favorite style, tasty but a little too salty or spicy,  or adequate but not enough quality for me.

Always try to give a reason or reasons why you don’t like something instead of just showing disapproval by saying its ugly, I hate it, I don’t like it, I don’t need it, or I don’t want it. If you have a reason for not liking something then your opinion will be more respected and humans will not get as offended as they will if you only express emotional revulsion or disapproval.

A good idea, opinion, or belief may not need a compliment but merely agreeing with the idea, opinion, or belief is sufficient praise if it is just acceptable but not outstanding.

Finally, if you do intensely dislike or hate something it is best to remain silent and not say anything at all if it is a stranger or a casual acquaintance who is not very important in your life. If it is your offspring, spouse, or close friend then remaining silent and trying to hide too many repulsive emotions may ruin a trustworthy relationship in the long duration. Emotional as well as factual honesty is the bond which keeps good relationships alive.
