    Meaning of Life

    For me its about being a good person, and embracing what life has to offer. Getting to experience various things, events, places, and people is important too.

    Do you believe in the story of Adam & Eve?

    The story of Adam and Eve is no more or less ridiculous than any other story of origin. The scary part for me is that there are people who believe that because its in the Bible that its absolutely true, despite scientific evidence to the contrary.

    Is Death Really A Victory?

    Nobody knows what happens to us when we die because nobody has died, and then come back to tell us all about it. Although there are some reports of people having died and had visions and then doctors saved them just in time, but its hard to verify these stories.

    Rich Dad Poor Dad

    The problem I have with Kiyosaki is that alot of his advice, particularly when he writes for Yahoo Finance, is in hindsight. He's not a financial genius. He got lucky with the real estate boom. At one point, he and his wife were living in their car. I've read this book, but you need to take it...

    The 7 Habits of Highly Successful People, and Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway are two good books.

    Do you eat root crops?

    I don't like sweet potatoes. They always offer sweet potato pie for Thanksgiving but I can't eat it. I like regular potatoes, especially mashed potatoes. I've never heard of cassava or taro.

    Do you eat breakfast?

    I usually eat breakfast, but I rarely take time to cook something. Just a piece of toast and some juice usually.

    Do You Prefer E-books over Books?

    I don't like e-readers, and I don't like pdf files, but I realize their convenience of being able to carry thousands of books in one device. I still like real books, especially when it comes to textbooks.

    Do you hate some aspects of yourself?

    I don't like the way I avoid confrontation or the way I procrastinate too much. I wouldn't say I hate myself because of it though. They are just things I have to work on.

    Staying Focused and Motivated When Self Employed

    Do you have family or anybody depending on you? That would be good motivation. Also, think about what you want from your success. There's a theory that when you think about a goal, your mind works towards achieving that goal.

    48 percent of Americans fear another Great Depression

    I've also had to move and gave up one of my cars. Luckily for me I had a family connection that got me a place with cheap rent. Its urban, but in a decent part of the city. I don't feel like the country ever left the recession and won't until my personal circumstances improve.

    What is the Ideal number of children for a family?

    I voted for zero, but that's because I can barely take care of myself and my cat. I don't think I could take care of a child. Too much responsibility. I'm also worried about the future of the planet, and I don't know if having kids is really fair to the kids, since their life could be much tougher.

    The Fear of Getting Old

    My only concern about getting old is that I would be a burden to the family. I try to eat right and exercise so hopefully this won't happen. We also have a history of Alzheimer's in my family and I really dont want that. There have been articles about how scientists think they can get life...

    The Apple Myth

    The Bible's been changed many times throughout history. Apparantly God can't make up his mind. Or maybe its just people making stuff up.

    Do You Always Eat On Time?

    I eat at completely different times every day. Since I work from home I can basically just eat whenever I want, so I do!
