The most obvious value is that of social lubrication. Gives you something easy to connect with others with. Obviously overobession is unhealthy, as with any other pastime. But given time spent on pastimes is generally of little socially macroscopic practical value (and your interest in science and history does have little absolute value in that way unless you're planning on being an influential politician or inventor). But it is interesting to you, and allows you to create connections with the people you meet and stimulate yourself intellectually (which not everyone wants to do).
I could easily say that those who never physically stimulate themselves via normal sports or extreme sports are not using their bodies to their full capacity and are useless wastes of carbon for not doing so - neglecting a core component of our existence is missing out on transcendent experiences. I'd be wrong, even though I do think it a little bit
I was taking issue more with the root of the thinking that results in
I'm not sure but I think we're completely agreeing on this. I don't see any difference between what you said and what I was trying to say.
Heh. I do that as well, though it's only superficially more reasonable than voting based on your like/dislike of a certain representative (assuming representative rather than direct democracy).
Not at all! I just think some have more weight/significance on the world. I don't judge my friends for not liking the same sports/music/hobbies as I do (although they have a bad habit of judging me/each other). Although I will admit to judging people above the voting age of 18 who are extremely ignorant on what they're voting for/on/about.

Sacul, it's a matter of bad quoting.
so let's recap:
- sacul is left babysitting the kid of the redhead he is using as some sort of rebound from the love of a lifetime
somehow it's gotten worse.
- sacul got the redhead pregnant?
- sacul got the love of his life, who he broke up with, pregnant?
- sacul raped the redhead's child?
- sacul is having sex with another woman on the side?
- sacul has done all of the above?
I'm guessing it's just 'Redhead says (or has made it plain) she's in love with Sacul, Sacul was just in it for the shagging. Sacul is trying to figure out how to run away without being a dick.'
Extra points if Sacul is now the only male role model in the kid's life.
I am however spending wayyyyyy to much time at her place and will be babysitting again monday.
Still facepalming but w/e
In more emo news i was told thursday my pcych who i have been seeing since 15 months is being laid off due to budget cuts (last one in first one out thing) so come october i will get a new shrink and i really am not happy about that at all. more than not happy im gutted seeing the work we put into our relation and the great quality she has given me
Why not just like visit her at her house and pay her the same you would? the pysch that is
We all know that would end up with sacul shagging his shrink. While possibly also shagging his new shrink at the side!
In any case, sacul, don't feel too bad, it really is a pretty difficult situation. Not that you're not responsible for it 100% :V
The complicated factor is that we also have mutual friends, i found out on facebook looking at a female friends page and suddenly seeing my shrinks name in her friends list. Its the reason i skipped the friends b'day bash 2 months ago. If she is no longer my shrink and we meet....dohohohoho
I nor she knows what she will do come october but i am however fully ready to follow her to another practice. Maybe it will come to that maybe not.
I feel a hypo coming hmmmmm
The more the kid gets involved the harder it's going to be unless you're really prepared to be a father figure. If I were you I'd make my choice now or risk damaging the kid, this is an important stage of his life and it's only responsible to be thinking of him. On the other tentacle he does need a father figure, does the redhead have anyone lined up for a long-term relationship?
Most likely its the reason the little is clinging to me so much. Dont get me wrong i like kids and wouldnt mind one or a few of my own but i also know being bi-polair there is a biiiig chance of me fucking up fatherhood. In any case i am great with the kid like i am with all little ones, except babies i only like kids when they can talk back and do their funny shit.
Here we are, i have peace of mind and i have a dilemma.
I know i put myself in these situations and i dont mind at all but now a 2 y/o is involved :lesigh:
