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.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
A number by itself is useful, but it is far more useful to know how accurate or certain that number is.

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.

Ever stop to think that they are right?

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.
