    child with no comprehension, learns how to feel by comparison,…or do you know more than most?

    Goodness, Dedo! Of course not!

    My TAKE is that feeling is something we little understand and it is not developed by social contact but is relative to how we understand and manipulate reality. I am speaking from the poet’s stance, of course. Here’s a cool quote:

    “To be a poet is to have a soul so quick to discern that no shade of quality escapes it, and so quick to feel, that discernment is but a hand playing the finely-ordered variety on the chords of emotion– a soul in which knowledge passes instantaneously into feeling, and feeling flashes back as a new organ of knowledge…” (Middlemarch, George Eliot pg143)

    Do you believe in the soul, Dedo? Are feelings of the mind or of the soul? Can science declare the answer?

    Do we ignore and castrate feeling in favor of cold reason? Is not this the definition of clear-eyed reason?

    Obama is clear-eyed, but he is human yet. I believe he has soul, he has bound it, but not severed the link to feeling yet.

    These are all personal understandings, Dedo, and I don’t believe the term psychopath is privy to any understanding save the understanding of clarity of control.

    I don’t believe we learn how to feel, but we feel how to learn.

    Tamiflu is a very dangerous “Horse Flu” mecication. It was not specificly designed to combat H1N1. It completely messes up your imune system and can be very dangerous which have been proven in the show cases including virus Tamiflu resistants.

    The danger of this flu is that if you are not able to kill it in one blow, it get’s stronger and stronger while the competition “Normal Variant” H1N1 is killed off.

    I thinki Henry L Niman, PhD makes a fair to thibka about case which seriously has to be examined into. http://www.recombinomics.com/whats_new.html

    Talki’n lonely wolf here about Greece and Ireland. Happ’n to be speak’n to some Irish folks. One of them actually worked in Stockholm Sweden, Luckky basterd. And “The most beatifull women” acoording to Lucky. “The Norwegians are more arrogant than the Swedish”, he said. The nmessed up my Greece vacation once. The rumour was that the Norwegian where expelled from business with the Hotel, which the Norwegians messes up.

    “The Finish are the most crazy dudes”, the Irish dude said, which I think is cute.

    Bottum Up Line: The Irish dudes are not stupid and are used to hear the BS propaganda fromt heir gov.. They are survivulist’s and go to work in “europe”!?

    @ Youri,

    You’re right about Irish scepticism, and I suspect that Irish guy was right about the Finns being a little crazy.
    My Finnish colleague sings in the afternoon when she gets a little over-tired. And she is a demon for drink. :P

    Very funny:

    Yeah, ahahahahahahhh! verry funny indeed. I’ve talked with Fins on some blogs and Skype an I must say these conversations are diffirent from any other round the globe. They have a tendency to keep their anwers extremely short and the use of too many adjectivs towards the Fin man or woman will be punished immediately with an answer which makes you feel stupid.

    I think for Hakkinen, the famous F1 Racecar driver, the most difficult part of his job is not the racing but the interviews.

    Can’t help myself to quote some from your link cause it’s too funny not to! : http://www.ilmatar.net/~np/misc/foreigners_guide_to_finland.html#basics

    Behaviour
    Finns talk as little as possible. Rarely they touch anyone, shaking hands is the most anyone will ever do. Unless drunk, of course. Whenever there is a big meeting, where a lot of people freely mix together, there are usually no formal introductions. People might have name badges. Foreigners are sometimes treated exceptionally, and, actually, introduced to Finns!

    The usual way to introduce a foreigner is to do it in front of everyone, so that Finns wouldn’t have to touch the foreigner or to talk him/her in person. However, if the introduction is personal, the finns reluctantly shake hands and “say” their name – the custom is to quietly mumble something like “hhmnumh hnmuhmnhh”. Ignore what the Finn says and look at the name badge instead.

    Nudity in public
    Unlike in US, for example, public nudity is perfectly normal in Finland. No one will stare at you, and no one is embarrassed, if you are nude. In the summer there are music festivals. People show how much fun they have by taking their clothes off. Typically, girls take their tops off first, then boys start to follow, and finally, there can be thousands of people dancing naked.

    Talking to finns

    Watch out for drunk Finnish men, though – they will think you are a “homo” or something and go berserk. Or, if you are a woman, they’ll think you are interested.

    Finnish people want to keep distance to people they are talking with. Depending on the situation, Finns’ personal space is from one to two metres (that is, about 3′ to 6′), at the very least. There is one situation in which Finnish people do talk, get close, and look into others’ eyes. That is when they are drunk.

    There are just a few subjects which should be avoided when talking with Finns. Ice hockey is one. Most Finns are fanatical ice hockey fans, and if you bring the subject up, you will be bored to death by their ice hockey talk. The rest of Finns hate ice hockey. One subject to avoid – when talking to Finnish men – is the army. Almost all Finnish men serve in the army, because it is required by law. Finnish men’s army memories will quickly bore you to death!

    The sooner Ireland extracates it’s self from both Euro and Crippling EU elite regulation the better. rebrand as the first Transition Nation, ephasising Green technology, rebulding decimated agriculture and fishing industries, as well as a huge supply of water that will become exportable. the only reason we cling is so our Politicians can have EU Political Career jobs when they are voted out of the Dail.
