schestowitzMaybe it is even less to do with happiness but the mere perception of what makes up happiness, for example things like status, envy, even subjugation at extremes. Parents sometimes see children as enablers of what they could not achieve themselves. Crude, but at times, I find, possibly true.Dec 01 15:45

schestowitz> the pressure put and how the children handle it..Dec 01 21:44
schestowitzParents sometimes use peer pressure by bringing up children from other families or creating a little simplicity competition between the siblings. It is actually pleasant to be able to speak to someone very intelligent who masters these concepts, not minding them being laid out so crudely. :-)Dec 01 21:44

schestowitzBeen an awkward day to me. I had to print out 6 papers to review on the plane on Monday (Ph.D. students) and then I went to the gym where I also wrote 6 short article, catching up after some unusual days at work (not the academic one).Dec 01 22:27
schestowitzPolicemen are public servants whose job is to use tax money wisely by reducing risk and affecting behaviour, not jailing of cuffing people (which the for-profit US penal system got wrong). If their effect by creating deterrence is a positive one, then that counts as success more than fines (or arrests for that matter) ever would. The assessment of officers is sometimes based and entirely judged by measurable figures that Dec 01 22:27
schestowitztotally miss the point and pervert the system, but it's a wholluy separate and boring subjects about optimising the wrong thing and definining the objective imprperly, then wondering why we raise a generation of 'criminals' who 'smoke stuff' and take 'nasty drugs' (except alcohol, let's pretend it is not a drug). ;-)Dec 01 22:27

TechrightsSocial@satipera (satipera)'s status on Thursday, 01-Dec-11 22:22:49 UTC - @schestowitz I repeat what I have said to you in the past. The word hate should be said less often than "I do" It is a hiding to nothing.Dec 01 22:58
