  4. For some reason I've always had issues with the word proud, pride, according to what I've read it probably derives from one's self esteem, although what's the barrier between modesty and low self-esteem it'd probably be hard to define. Then there's the expression "rest on one laurels", which I believe describes people who have been too proud of an achievement, for too long, not realizing the moment they were overtaken by more younger or zealous rivals. Of course I'm proud of several achievements, but this is not the place to discuss them, I believe, I also think I'm proud of different things at different points of my life, in the mid nineties I was proud of meeting governors and C.E.O.s and Craig Barrett at some point, pride must be an ephemeral emotion.

  6. I've been watching some episodes of Star Trek Voyager, I have noticed that other planets they visit don't seem to differ much from ours, there are Senates, courts, just as there are here on Earth, also, capitalism seems to be the dominant system on other galaxies, there's talk of currencies and monetary exchanges, I think they're sending an implicit message that capitalism exists everywhere regardless of time and space. Also, the civilisations they visit are either very advanced or very primitive, in one episode there's a planet where the bartering system is still in place, but this is also an historical/economical distortion as it would imply that feudalism, or any other economic system, would eventually settle in those primitive planets. I don't complain, the episodes are entertaining, but I wish they were more imaginative and life in other planets was actually different than it is in our planet. How come a people like the Banean sit down to supper, just like most families in, say, the United States, and how come they're familiar with the concept of hospitality?
  7. So, Facebook wants to know: - where do I work - where did I go to high school - which city do I live in - where did I grow up - what is my relationship status pretty intrusive!!
