Irvine,

Perhaps you missed this:

BVSS
and
Melon,

The intent of the thread was to take a healthy look back at the good things in our past (nostalgia) while trying to replicate those good things into our present and future lives.

Surely you have some fond memories of your youth.

but nostalgia isn't a look at the good thigns in the past, nostalgia is the reinvention of the past in order to transform it as a source of comfort for when the present gets difficult. is this a healthy way to look at the past?

of course i have many happy memories. but i also have sad memories. one is neither better nor worse than the other. one learns from each, and yes i agree, learning from the past is a great way to make the present better.




but if i ever have kids, they are damn well going to be wearing bike helmets.

I think some parents substitute material things for the work they should be doing-it's easier I guess
A-fucking-men!

And this problem crosses all segments of society. I think a lot of kids are ill-mannered and spoiled because their parents are ill-mannered and spoiled.

I agree with this. Well said.
