755: 2011-03-27: Real Andy Griffith self-confidence should not be confused with Barney Fife pseudo self-confidence.
756: 2011-03-27: Many talk about creativity, but when the opportunity for it arises in real life, most will fall back on convention.
757: 2011-03-26: @laurenahayes Of course, this isn't a democracy. You're just soliciting feedback. What really matters is who you want to be.
758: 2011-03-26: Anything that can be learned from classes can be learned on your own, but you also need real experience to test that learning.

761: 2011-03-24: @lolahayes "I come in peace" <== I've heard that one before and I'm not buying it. What do you REALLY want?

765: 2011-03-19: Most documentaries today are shot out-of-sequence (not in the order portrayed), meaning that it's basically "reality-based fiction".
766: 2011-03-19: "Oh, you're going to ___? You really must stop at ___ and try their ___!" Bullshit! That's just consumerism, not productive travel.

777: 2011-03-13: In place of delusion is a life tied to reality. You seek out accurate feedback and modify your goals and action steps accordingly.
778: 2011-03-13: You can't talk someone out of their addictions or out of their emotionally driven goals. Same thing, really!

783: 2011-03-09: At first, we see our parents as gods, then we rebel. Only later do we see who they really are: kids themselves who got in over their head.
784: 2011-03-09: To be appreciated fully, you really need to be dead.
785: 2011-03-08: When we say someone has a "big ego" we really mean the opposite: their ego is so weak they have to over-assert the pretense of it.

792: 2011-03-05: It's unfortunate that children have access to porn, but is it really hurting them? The reaction of most: "Ewwww, gross!"
793: 2011-03-04: People want solutions to their problems but without disrupting their existing emotional investments. So... no real solutions!
794: 2011-03-04: Reality may be a video game, but no other offers so much depth and complexity—and so many challenge levels!

799: 2011-03-03: Our parents fed us so much bullshit! But that was their job. You can't handle reality all at once, so fairy tales are the intermediate step.

806: 2011-02-28: For the marketer, the advantage of a crap product over a real one is the higher markup. This funds more advertising, which sells more crap.
807: 2011-02-28: Fakery persists because it works. Given the right signals, people will purchase the illusion of quality instead of the real thing.

829: 2011-01-31: Nice to voice your support for Eqypt, but the real issue is what happens next. Revolutions have a poor track record of restoring democracy.

838: 2011-01-25: You can lie in a tweet—It's easy enough.—but you can't fake your personality over time. The real person will show through!
839: 2011-01-25: The Sherlock Holmes Delusion is that you can deduce the whole from a few isolated details. Reality has too many dimensions for that.
840: 2011-01-24: Another term for entertainment is "pseudo experience". When you are "being entertained" you aren't doing real things in the real world.
841: 2011-01-24: @hjamess "It doesn't happen often, but you're wrong about entertainment BadDalai." <== How so? It's real experience vs fake experience.

848: 2011-01-20: The main distraction of music is... the music! What really matters is the words and tune. The rest of the music is secondary.

856: 2011-01-15: When you think about it, every product is "Real". So "Real Cola Taste, Zero Calories" is perfectly legal.

860: 2011-01-12: College is a halfway house between home and real life. It keeps students occupied while they grow their final layer of brain cells.
861: 2011-01-12: Emotional security sounds nice. The question is whether it is really possible.
862: 2011-01-12: .@The_Scrutiniser "What makes you think 'real thoughts' are so valuable?" <== Is your life worth doing something with?
863: 2011-01-12: Music has a dangerous hold on the nervous system. Instead of thinking real thoughts, you have an iPod pumping drugs into your brain.

870: 2011-01-07: Just because a TV show is called a "documentary" doesn't mean it bears any relation to reality. More like "truth-based fiction" for ratings.
871: 2011-01-07: The only thing about music that has to be "real" is the human voice. Everything else can be computer generated.

883: 2010-12-30: The trouble with viral marketing (like real viruses) is that the immune system adapts quickly and won't accept the same campaign twice.

891: 2010-12-20: Cool beauty is perfect geometry, detached and inaccessible. Warm beauty is a smile, imperfect but real, that engages the viewer personally.
