I'm a scientist. I love all things scientific, from astronomy to zoology, but my degree, background, and love is physics. I despised the movie, What the Bleep (do we know), but if you enjoyed it that's okay as long as it was strictly for entertainment purposes. ;-)
While sex is important to me... Yeah, the kinky, sweaty, boundary-pushing kinda stuff... It's not everything. It's all part of the journey. We're so goal-oriented when it comes to sex, we forget to enjoy it until what... Until it's over? I'd prefer a nice evening with a live band, an afternoon at a museum, a sexy photo session, or just a cup of coffee with somebody - with no hurry to get to the sack. Although sheet-time is definitely nice, when I get there, keep in mind that I am not as "goal-oriented" as most may be. If I cum first... That's the way the cookie crumbles. So the pressure's off, LOL.
Dr. Seuss was right: “Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.”
I've been reading a lot of peoples' Q&A here... I love those. They really say a lot about people. I need to say something about politics though: I'm learning that many here could simply NEVER hook up with somebody who has opposite political beliefs as they have. I'm sorry to see that. I want to respect that and tell you my politics, which are important to me, but unfortunately, it makes me quite the opposite of MOST people. I'm a Libertarian. I believe strongly that government is about ten times its necessary size. I believe in helping my fellow human beings - not complete strangers in another state or country who are in no way accountable to me for the benefits they may receive and with no return on investment. I believe we all can make the world a better place if we start with ourselves, followed by our families, and then by our tribes and our communities. I believe public education is a monopoly, which is why it doesn't work as well as it should, and why our best teachers aren't paid as they should be. I believe wealth redistribution is "leveling the playing field" after the game is over. I believe corporate welfare is the exact opposite of capitalism, and capitalism is basically good. I also believe my personal wealth is not nearly as important as my spiritual health, but I still want government to lay off both of those. I want government to stay out of our bedrooms, and get out of the business of sanctioning marriage entirely. I want government to get out of the health care industry so costs can drop back to competitive levels and more people can afford it. This will also free us from silly behavioral engineering actions like limiting the foods we choose to eat, what we can smoke, how much we exercise, and whether or not we wear a helmet when we do semi-dangerous things. Basically, I want to live and let live, and I want to be able to hold onto a few thousand extra dollars every year so I can help a dear friend with cancer.
Here's an exercise that might provide insight into what I think of money, taxes, and where I'd like it to go, at this stage of the game. If I made a million bucks this year, here's what I'd do with it: I'd probably give 10% to the Libertarian party, LOL. I'd spend 20% to make sure all my friends are healthy and had straight teeth (they'd all get 1099s for it, and enough extra cash to cover those taxes). I'd give 10% to the local church that demonstrated the most community compassion and services to the community (yes, I'm an atheist, but that's neither here nor there). I'd give 5% each to the MS Society and the American Cancer Society. I'd give 5% ($50k) to my dad, and 5% to my mom, and 5% to each of my two sons. I'd give 5% more to each of two local vets who need it more than I do. I'd give 10% to the local battered women and children's center. I'd spend 5% to help take care of unemployed friends, and keep 5% for myself. Why only 5% ($50k)? Because that's taxed at minimal rates, and I want to have as much of a SAY in where my damn money goes as possible. I don't get that say if I spend a million bucks on myself, and I think that's a bit immoral. This should give you an idea of the things that are important to me, though. I'll tweak it here and there as my priorities adjust.
