Re: General : Story Time

Nothing ever really changes except people's attitudes toward things.


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.

I think the UK influenced how the world would be like today. Americans speak English right?

Re: General : Story Time

Chooipian: the correct conclusion is that every generation think that their contemporary time is worse than what could be possibly achieved.

That is why that person on yahoo says so.

Re: General : Story Time

I do not think there is any way by which I can determine they are right or wrong.

Chooipian was wondering if a person in modern India is happy that they are not in british India. The answer is no, because of the above principle

Re: General : Story Time

People are generally an ungrateful lot. They never appreciate what they have anyway. The more they have the less they appreciate it.  No group has ever been happy but today's people have more so they are less happy.
