    Life's Greatest Defect

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by Crazy Ivan, May 25, 2008.

    For you, right now, what is it?

    I'd say it's the utter lack of totally awesome gigantic musical numbers that really bugs me.

    Now that's a tough question... There's a few things that I could list, but for now I'm going to go with 'do-it-yourself' instructions for home furnishings. It took me far too long to decipher the assembly instructions for my desk chair before I could put it together and spin around on in safely.

    The lack of an internet browser that could be implanted in my brain. Oh come on, how many mundane things do you have to endure in a day? WOuldn't it be easier if, while waiting on a bank line, you could log on?

    Let's refrain from Microsoft-bashing, or Mac-bashing, or Linux-bashing (etc).

    It's non-productive. and every bit as potentially volatile as religious or political arguments.

    I think people defining life's greatest defect is in fact it's only defect.

    Oh and exams... I hate exams...

    Eh, doing poorly in school, feeling a lack of focus, loosing a girl... I have some sizable problems right now. Still, I try to look forward and know that I can fix what I've broken.

    Lacking the ability to make everyone happy. It's not always about me...but, sometimes for the sake of balance it has to be.

    Quantum mechanics. It's unnecessary, and confuses poor physics students like myself.

    imo, "life's" greatest defect is humankind... which is, overall, anything but 'kind'...

    For shame! To malign the branch of physics that put the last nail in the coffin of determinism, ensuring a place for free will!

    Life's greatest defect, is death. I should have thought that was obvious.

    I agree. Death is certainly quite a defect in life. I mean, I figure the greatest defect in anything is something that causes it to end.

    I think the greatest defect however, is the utter lack of any degree of humility in humans in general. Pride is a deadly sin my friends for more than one reason, and humanity has ALOT of it.

    Well, look at the bright side. We're one of a "kind" ahahahahahaha :D. Puns are fun :).

    Agreed, for sure. If everyone stayed alive, the planet would quickly get overcrowded.
    And, for the love of God, imagine the mayflies. All. The. MAYFLIES.

    But its wonderful for science fiction writers. I'm reading two books on physics for laymen, one of them specifically concerning quantum mechanics, and its fascinating.

    The biggest life defect is the fact that I'm not GOD!!!!!
    If I was life would no longer be defective. At least for me.

    Edit: I just had a nasty thought. If nothing died, think about what we eat. We'd eat something, and then it would continue to grow and move around in our stomachs. That would play hell with the digestive system.

    Also, there would be no coral reefs. And everyone would be bald, all over the body, because hair is dead skin cells. In fact, ALL of your outer skin is dead cells- so what would never dying do to our bodies?

    Today I think life's greatest defect is me not being elected President of the US. Come on could I REALLY do any worse?

    I think it's my sense of reason - much like other balancing aspects of my personality (and a certain tyrannical ego that I've come to know), it mutated, broke free of the constraints I placed on it and began causing much mayhem and destruction in all the major cities.

    Godzilla, Mothra and Gamera failed to subdue any of them. :eek:
