QUESTIONS WHICH ARE BETTER THAN FUNNY OR CLEVER PICKUP LINES!!!

sjf91ho-2

You look great. I would like to know you better if you’re single like me?

Excuse me, are you single like me?

Excuse me, do you have 30 seconds of free time? I’m interested and single.

Hi. My name is___ and I am interested in you if you’re single like me?

You caught my eye and I would like to know if you’re single like me?

 

If you find out the person is not single then you could sometimes ask them-Do you have any single friends? It may seem like you are a little desperate but as the old saying goes- nothing ventured, nothing gained.

 

Sometimes indirect questions can be used without using the word single in the first sentence.

 

Excuse me, where did you buy that nice outfit?

Excuse me, are you from out of town?

I’ve seen you before. Do you live in ___ or here?

Do you come here often?

 

You can also start out with a statement and follow it up with questions.

 

Excuse me, I would like to spend a few minutes getting to know something about you.       Follow this up with questions such as- Are you single? What do you like to do the most? What do you hate the most? Are you employed? etc.

 

 

Remember an honest, sincere, to the point question preceded by excusing yourself first is the polite way to introduce yourself to someone who is a total stranger.

 

Almost everyone likes to be flattered a little so you can start off by giving a sincere not overly inflated compliment for looks. That’s an attractive outfit. Are you single like me? She or he may be beautiful or handsome but not using the superlative will make them think that you are interested in more than just their beauty or handsomeness and maybe even feel a little perplexed why you didn’t instantaneously call them beautiful or handsome since that is the standard response which they get from most humans.

THE TRUTH ABOUT OFFSPRING

parents-who-discipline-their-children

If you are employed and married with offspring then offspring will cost you much money and will become priority number one in your lives. Love will have to be shared with spouse and offspring.

Especially when they are young and if you have more than one, offspring will take up much of your time and will have to be disciplined appropriately and taught many basic social skills from scratch.

Teaching how to share toys and even food is a constant struggle since offspring are very selfish when they start out and their behavior will constantly overflow into an area called bad behavior which is unacceptable and will need constant supervision.

The rebellion of the teenage years is going to be difficult. If they haven’t been taught to be as independent and responsible as possible then they will begin to feel entitled and this may last on into early adulthood with unemployed offspring living with parents and not being able to survive on their own in the real world.

Young adults frequently still don’t know what they want to be in life and a liberal arts background may make them job poor and only qualified to work at minimum wage doing something not very rewarding or satisfying.

Having responsible offspring who like to work hard and have acquired a truly useful technological educational background is a rarity and if you can motivate offspring in such a direction then they will be dependent on your financial support for a much shorter duration.

Offspring above all need good role models to imitate and if you are not a good role model and can’t find good ones to associate with then your offspring will imitate your bad habits and not grow up well. They will probably not become well adjusted employed adults and parents themselves.

CONCLUSION:

Parenting basically means being a good role model. If you come from a dysfunctional family then you also will probably be a bad parent and you should seriously consider having no offspring at all or just one.

Not only will it cost you less financially but if you ruin your offspring’s life it will be just one life and not more than one life ruined due to your incompetence.

If you have serious personality flaws or addictions to compulsive shopping, promiscuity, gambling, pornography, alcohol and drugs, etc. then you should have no offspring at all nor should you probably marry because divorce is almost inevitable.

You may consider yourself to be a good role model but remember that raising offspring in an increasingly hedonistic immoral society which is tolerant of lying and deceptions is going to be an uphill struggle if you want to raise honest, sincere, reliable, trustworthy, and functional offspring.

Parenting is hard, time consuming, expensive work. If you have better or more important things to do with your life then don’t become a parent. The world does not really need more humans on the face of this precious, endangered, overpopulated planet.

THE TRUTH ABOUT CHILD LABOR

teenEMPLOYMENT

Teenagers historically used to help out with hard farm work and there is no reason why modern teenagers should not be working part time about 4 hours a day to learn the work ethic and about the importance of being punctual. Teenagers should not be treated like children subject to child labor laws.

School is not very challenging for most liberal arts students and little useful knowledge is learned in school these days so the school day itself could be cut back by about 4 hours without quality education suffering at all.

Teenagers should be working in rather safe work conditions as sales clerks, stock clerks, receptionists, urban farm workers, safe factory assembly line workers and packers, and as workers in fast food restaurants.

Teenagers should work at less than minimum wage and compete with other young adults who are working at minimum wage. They can get shuttled to and from work by their parents or use a bicycle or scooter if they are old enough. They will learn the value of money and how hard it is to make it and will be motivated to learn useful skills in school to get a better paying job upon graduation.

Yes, there will be more adult unemployment in society and those adults should invest their time, effort, ability, and achievement to reeducate themselves over the internet for free in a technological job skill if they chose not to remain on welfare but want something better.

We have become an entitlement society which feels that working at minimum wage is not worth the effort and it is better to get on welfare and get paid for no work at all. Training teenagers to work hard on the job will hopefully go a long way towards reducing this entitlement mindset and creating more appreciation for the value of working hard at something which we may not like that much as adults but which is an ideal learning experience for self-motivated teenagers.

CONCLUSION:

Teenagers are too removed from the real working world for too long and are not learning many useful skills in school which will land them a good paying job. It is time teenagers learned to work hard, interact with the public sooner, and understand that WHAT you learn in school is more important than how much time you spend learning largely useless skills such as music, physical education, literature, foreign languages, history, arts, and team sports.

THE TRUTH ABOUT GLOBALISM

2940013377905_p0_v1_s260x420

Humanity has long had a Utopian dream of world unity with nations living in peace and harmony with each other and all having just laws which rule human behavior. The truth is that the world is being ruled by big money which is propping up corrupt national governments with rich rulers and relatively impoverished citizens. In fact the monetary disparity between the rich rulers and the ruled is increasing with a reality that the poor will remain poor and the rich will get richer.

This is not necessarily a bad development because a large middle class means more use of natural resources and greater pollution which devastates biodiversity and degrades the quality of the environment plunging the world ever closer to a catastrophic state of no return.

The internet, robotization, international corporations, and big money is going to make the world job poor and most will just have to get used to the fact that there will be a technological working elite and most will be living a life of leisure on welfare on close to subsistence living standards.

There should be a hope for everyone on welfare to make it into the middle class or ruling class through personal time, effort, ability, and achievement at any age through free technological education on the internet.

My evergreen truth books CHANGES IN WELFARE LAWS and EDUCATION REFORM detail how just laws can be implemented so that a society with great disparity between the rich and poor can in fact still be a just society offering even the poorest the potential to work their way out of poverty through free self-educational effort.

True world unity will only come with one common language, uniform laws, and a political merger of rich nations with poor ones.

Corruption in the world will only be reduced if nations have just constitutions and just laws all following a basic moral code for behavior. My evergreen truth books NEW CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES, NEW UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS, JUSTICE, and GLOBALISM are all useful sources for just moral laws which should be implemented worldwide to bring the world community closer together in a just way.

MONEY IS FREQUENTLY NOT THE BEST MOTIVATOR IN COMPLEX WORK!!!

motivation2jh1

For physical work more money as a reward frequently translates into better or more work. For complicated mental work a sense of self-worth, some autonomy to improve or develop a skill set, and having a purpose to the job beyond mere profit is frequently more important.

Having goals beyond mere money and having the creative freedom to pursue those goals autonomously to some extent can produce superior on the job performance.

This link provides some scientific evidence to support these findings in a very interesting informative format.

THE TRUTH ABOUT CURIOSITY

images

Curiosity: n. a desire to acquire new knowledge and/or experiences

Are you stuck in a rut or are bored with your existence and don’t know how to escape it? If this is true then chances are that you may have lost your curiosity or a desire to learn and experience new knowledge and new experiences.

There is superficial curiosity and detailed curiosity and if you just have superficial curiosity then you will usually not get past the propaganda in every field of interest and you will just reaffirm many of your old opinions and prejudices and follow celebrity viewpoints.

If you have detailed curiosity then you will learn new words which apply to an area of interest and you will start developing a more detailed understanding. Detailed curiosity is frequently hard work because you will frequently be going to the dictionary to learn new words and concepts. Even detailed curiosity will not necessarily lead to a better understanding of the area which you are interested in because there are frequently professional vague buzz words which are used to obscure reality and are just expressions of biased opinions which make professionals seem more knowledgeable than they actually are.

Take the stock market as an example. You may start off by reading popular investment books and find out that there are many details, new words, or fundamentals which are written about such as tangible assets, PE ratios, dividends, sectors, hedges, historical average performance, volatility, channeling, indexes, volume, profit, loss, calls, puts, Fibonachi numbers, algorithms, investment aids, etc. and you will get so involved in minutia details that you won’t understand the big picture and the basic fact that stock prices are unpredictable to a large extent and depend on big money investors and fast computers.

The stock market is in fact is being manipulated unfairly causing volatility and the dropping and rising of stock prices for no logical reason whatsoever. The big secret or deception is that the modern stock market is mostly a gambling scam invented to make you lose your money in the short and long duration with very few exceptions.

If you are an average or even millionaire investor then the odds of you making a profit in the stock market are against you no matter what you do because the stock market is basically unpredictable and no amount of detailed information will change that basic fact or big picture unless you have inside information and know where the big wealthy boys are putting their money next.

The only certainty in the stock market is that big corporations will not go out of business overnight and that their stock prices will probably not drop to zero overnight.

I have an insatiable curiosity and want to know the truth about every important subject imaginable and am blogging about what I have discovered over a lifetime. My over 600 evergreen truth blogs and my 17 evergreen truth books are the fruits of my curiosity filtered through a no nonsense logical mind trained in a math and science background and applied to the real non- scientific world also. You may disagree with some of my views but it will usually not be boring.

I have found that my curiosity frequently uncovers just more BS as I delve deeper into any subject matter including theoretical physics. After all that curiosity and writing I am finding out that I am beginning to repeat myself with few new worlds to logically conquer or understand. My search for the new and interesting frequently runs into stuff which I already know about and I am finding fewer and fewer diamonds of information worthy for recording or writing about.

Curiosity will make you drown in a world of BS which you will think is the truth and you will form many untrue opinions and beliefs if you don’t have a logical mind. Curiosity will probably entertain you and you will seldom be bored but if you want to separate fact from fiction then read my writings as much as possible or stay away from verbosity.

Search my website for THE TRUTH ABOUT dating, friendship, marriage, empathy, politics, education, money, technology, justice, truth, etc. and you will find more than a handful of interesting realistic insights and facts about the mythology and deceptions which are rampant in human civilization.

To satisfy your curiosity it is not so important to read a great quantity of information on a subject but it is more important to read quality information. To do so you have to be very selective in what you read and whose writing you read.

Titles of blogs and articles will frequently give you a good hint of whether you will find something interesting and informative to read. Since I have such a great wealth of knowledge I find that I read only about one article in a hundred on websites such as popsci.com, phys.org, and huffingtonpost.com and watch about one in three videos on websites such as Ted.com.

An important question to ask before you read is- Will I learn something really new? or Is it just an article which will reinforce what I already know or believe with much verbosity? In the liberal arts, politics, economics, sociology, education, sports, etc. the longer the article, the more useless verbosity you will probably find in it.

Being curious should mean that you are looking for gems to read about and not mediocre verbose ego trips by authors who have one sentence of useful information to offer you and spend hundreds of words embellishing that information wasting most of your time.

Cutting through verbose crap is not easy and sometimes Googling what you are interested in will give you much more relevant information more quickly. I personally like lists of information about something such as Googling 10 dating mistakes or 10 tips for preventing divorce which automatically gives more than one useful piece of information about what to avoid when dating or tips on how to prevent divorce. Lists will frequently cut through the feel good verbose crap and give you many useful facts which you can apply to your life right away.

CONCLUSION:

Curiosity is a useful motivating factor but just like anything else there is just being curious about anything and selectively being curious and optimizing the benefits of that curiosity. There is a big difference between random largely useless curiosity and purposeful useful directed curiosity. Knowing the difference and making some reading rules to follow can give you quality results and save you much time, energy, money, and effort.

THE TRUTH ABOUT DESIRE

Desires

Desire: v. to mentally sense a need to achieve a goal(s) and frequently making that future achievement more probable and it originates in the survival instinct and search for pleasure

Most of us lead a life filled with desires to eat, drink, talk, have sex, share experiences, possess things, do things, believe things, have a family, get high, hope for some fame and fortune, avoid pain and sorrow, and generally want to be happy.

Desires motivate us to act in certain ways which frequently become good and/or bad habits in adulthood which we frequently have to live with for a lifetime. Without desires our lives would come to a screeching halt, we would sink into devastating depression, or we would not want to do anything.

When your desires stop you also probably stop living or if you have few desires left in life then you probably live a very boring life just eating and drinking and watching TV.

To avoid a boring life you must come up with new desires which motivate you to do something different from your daily boring routine but few are able to make their lives more interesting because their boring lifestyle has become a bad habit which is hard to break or hard to replace with good habits.

Most of us live with impulsive desires in adulthood which create some predictability in our lives but impulse can also be a trap from which it is hard to escape if we would like some better results in our lives.

If your old desires are generally good desires then you will not be in a constant battle with the bad effects of your bad desires and your life should generally be better led. If you are stuck with bad desires then your life may be filled with failure, disappointment, and bad consequences.

Know yourself or be aware of your conscious and unconscious good and bad desires. What you do do may be a good or bad habit which you are getting some satisfaction from.

What you don’t do is harder to figure out because you may be avoiding something to avoid pain, embarrassment, failure, or a blow to your ego which are all unconscious reasons for not doing something or not behaving a certain way.

What generally motivates our desires is to get pleasure and avoid pain. Frequently our pleasurable senses associated with a bad habit may lead to pain or failure which we chose to ignore because seeking immediate pleasure overrides the pain which we will suffer in the future as a result of the short duration pleasure which we get.

Addictions to bad habits like gambling, pornography, impulsive shopping, and drugs gives us immediate pleasure and we just don’t make the logical connection with the bad consequences which result from the addiction and don’t make the smart necessary avoidance adjustments in our behavior.

Bad pleasurable desires are frequently a trap from which few of us escape unless the bad consequences become too much to bear or we crash and burn and barely escape with our lives.

Creating good desires in childhood leads to good habits in adulthood and if you grow up with too many bad desires then your adulthood will be filled with many bad habits causing you much enduring pain and sorrow.
