No idea,shes the type to be super cautious so i assume she drove the speed limit,with seatbelts etc etc.


Its just sad this type of stuff happens because people overestimate themselves,the drivers multitasking skills. Id sue the fuck out of the guy if i was her or her family.

Too much dumbasses on this planet in various forms - (there are lots of studies showing that a lot of people CAN'T multitask as well as they BELIEVE to do..). Driving a car while doing something else is big-time stupidity. And in my country just recently they passed a law that forbids phone while driving, slow fucking progress but guess it's in the right direction.


indeed. it is quite true that clinical studies show that people are generally poor at multi-tasking, with higher occurrences of people who think they are good at it, being more bad at it than others...if that makes sense.

they passed laws against cellphone use while driving in my country about a year ago.

tell her all your weird anime friends wish her a speedy recovery. and that we're all willing to sue collectively. :D:D

I know its sad. But things like this happen so often in Trinidad that I assume that I am sub-consciously desensitized to road carnage, as well as homicides and kidnapping.

=\

I think I had mentioned these things, in stating my reasons for wanting to come to the U.S., apart from studying. Nothing has changed either in my country either.

Be cautious. He could be hoping for your failure, considering how you interpret his post. :o

knowing you, I was expecting Socrates' "All I know is I know nothing" quote :tongue:

Well...I could have said that. But perhaps that is a quote I'd using prior to an actual exhibition of what I know on a certain topic. Its a humorous quote in any manner you wish to view it as it makes a comparison between what you do not know and infinity since, really and truly, you would not know the things you do not know. If philosophically weighed against a collective rememberance of "things you know" it would appear that you virtually know nothing as an infinite amount of unknown obviously would outweigh what is known

It's a depressing or rather, boring quote used to fool around with people who assume they know everything. Or rather, that's probably just how I see it. =\

It was Socrates himself though, who said " False words are not only evil in themselves; they infect the soul with evil."

So that I believe I know the things that I know. but if I or someone else could find everything that I do not know and place it into a "container" of sorts, and then label that container "Everything I do not know," I would then be familiar with the things that I do not know because I can then simply point to this container. and I would then also know what I do not know.

Shut up and watch Cardcaptor Sakura, you keyboard Socrateses.

Problem is the person im trying to impress is the others friends best friend,to top it off,were all hanging out to swap gifts. Basically as it stands,crush will scream in joy and other friend will have the fake smile expression with a nod as a thank you.


I dug myself a deeper hole by consulting her about crushes present,and now she has like super high expectations :lol::fp:

:fp:

never do this. the most brilliant minds in the world, like my math lecturer from school (1 of 2 people chosen to do Special Math throughout the entire Caribbean during his time) speak to ourselves a lot. you know why?

~We are our own consultants ~

:o

no but seriously... in my opinion its never a good situation where you're crushing on someone who's friends with your more "casual" friends. it is considered by some to be a situation where relationships will end. And by end, I mean end badly. Because there's a diaspora of predicaments that you'll eventually find yourself in. Case in point; Christmas gifts. =\

First idea was concert tickets,since we basically have the exact taste in music,i knew for a fact she would like whatever band came in town. But i checked bans coming in the next month and their mostly obscure indie bands no one has heard of. Dunno if id buy an extra ticket with the purpose of going together. just like ikita im taking my sweet time with wooing her :lol::lol:
