    Did the film Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel definitively resolve the the question of how the human mind and body can causally interact?Sapientia

    Yes, but it takes three viewings in one day to see it.

    Who are these intellectual snobs, suffering under the oppressive reality of a dominance hierarchy?

    I'm not interested in truth but rather status (which genuine curiosity might confer in this neighborhood). I don't have any in any domain. Donald Trump would call me a loser. :(

    Exactly. It should be made up at least 30 minutes before commencing tome.

    Look, Meryl is not happy, Whoopie swore she would move, along with a bunch of other folks if Trump was elected. Though I did not EVER want Hillary, anywhere near the Presidential office, I never said that if she was elected, I would leave the country. If these folks are so worked up about the 45th President elect, such as yourself Sapientia, then please open your arms and welcome the lot of them in.
    The USA is to be United and Meryl along with Elizabeth Warren don't want to unite so let them go, be free!
    In the meantime, the rest of us are going to do what we have been doing, day in and day out and that is working our asses off to obtain clients that pay, stay and refer. They are the bread and butter of our small business existence and in the last 8 years the strangle hold of regulations has been near lethal for the businesses that we help grow. There is not a single small business owner, in OUR profession of POS (Point Of Sale) computer networking business, that is not GENUINELY excited about what the next 4-8 yrs hold.
    And Sapientia my fine feathered friend, excitement in the small business world is like gasoline being poured onto a log of Pitch that has been smoldering for almost a decade.
    Like a Phoenix, the USA is rising from the ashes.

    You know that's a myth, right? In the real world nothing rises from the ashes except the stench of burning corpses.

    If the USA really is to be united, Meryl and Elizabeth are the least of your worries, the 100 million or so other Americans who consider Trump an abomination (read the polls) may be a somewhat more inconvenient assemblage to force to walk the plank of the good ship, Trumpmerica.

    Deregulation will probably help small business owners like yourselves, but that doesn't make Trump's overall economic plan of more spending (infrastructure, the military, his hair) and less revenue (massive tax cuts for the rich), desirable. (Do the math).

    15...30...45...60 - Bam!...Never mind all that 'Where am I comin from/goin to?' mularky – Just how come's so friggin short? - An' how's such a blink of an eye meant to accommodate time sufficient to exaust the impulses of human immaturity, thereby permitting at the end the requisite equinimanous state of, 'All passion spent' and the statutarily required attitude of serene reconciliation towards the encroaching 'Eternal Dream'? Talk about, 'short-changed'? Wouldn't be so bad if there was even a Complaints Dept. - Should be ‘done’ under the ‘Trade Descriptions Act’! :(

    NB. Conversly with regard to the above, I' ve admittedly heard it said that on a journey distance travelled is not necessarily proportional to time taken - so that in retrospect, it can turn out that someone who didn't make it past 25 nonetheless ultimately had a more meaningful life-experience than another who made it past 90!
