Re: Sklansky Coincidence Theory Messi

Or the theory that the number of beautiful women on TV is above real life frequencies because, conspiracy theory in action, they tend to promote and help advance the most pleasant looking ones. That can also mean the easier ones in other ways that offer less resistance to abusive behavior (or behavior that is abusive because nature wants it to be so and we can be better than that of course because of civilization without rejecting its original basis). Nasty as this is its a fact likely. My father worked in sound editing behind the scenes in many quality productions on TV, radio and theater but also the standard government manipulated news productions, media journalism etc and knows it all too well.


Or another theory yet that there is in fact such a thing as universally sexy and beautiful regardless of cultural bias and also such a thing as internal consistency in choices that you always return to it as a man when you close your eyes and see the same girl all over again in a group but with different clothes and setting. Yes consistency is a "proof" that there is something deeper that takes you there every time almost. Choice... haha. No choice.

Did you as a student (because this is where the truth of it all starts) prefer to help with homework the uglier looking girl or the sexy blond slutty behaving one (i wonder how they ever get there so young and who is responsible if not also nature itself at times) or the secretly beautiful shy one etc. I knew very well what i preferred but i made it a plan to never show them that i internally discriminated like this. But real world is uglier than that. I am not here to deny the truth and hide behind political correctness. I am here to study the nature in all its glory wherever this takes me and understand not only the character of physical law but also the games it played in defining the human condition after billions of years of random walk adventures.

Re: Sklansky Coincidence Theory Messi

grunching here....................................

don't know messi's back story or even current story......... but i do assume that maybe the 2 are related. i.e. one of the reasons he's the best - by far? - is due to having been able to take special meds

one thing that amazes me about messi and confuses me about other sports....... i would have thought his being small is terrible. one sport i'm specifically thinking of that is anti-small is ice hockey. but i personally think smaller quicker players in soccer or hockey could have tremendous advantages

as to "smaller and quicker players", if you've ever seen the results of a 40 yard run trial at a high school football camp there are tons of 5 foot 5 players who can run really fast times because they are very light on their feet.......... doesn't seem to be much enthusiasm for them with football coaches. again, i disagree on their usefulness but not like hockey/soccer.

i thought that you can't generally exemptions for banned substances..... i realize there are many leagues/rules........... surprised someone hasn't hired aggressive lawyer to be able to take amphetamines for ADHD i.e. baseball would be good example

of course, some doctors will basically sign almost anything these days. in fact with the worst you could probably compose their letters for them

i asked a few people i respect if it's wrong to blatantly favour hot women in dealing with them personally i.e. they are annoying but you give them benefit of doubt and/or slack.

they basically said that's life and "that's just the way it is" - to quote Bruce Hornsby.

The point is that they were almost all blondes, not just attractive.

The Messi thread is, like they say, that way --->

Maybe Zeno will help?
