It might be better to decrease the waiting period (or remove it altogether) for new accounts. 2 weeks sounds like an awfully long time... by sponges88 in SaidIt

It seemed like a while when I did it, but I think it ultimately makes sense. Better to learn a little about the community and people here before creating your own sub-community.

40x4500 or 40x450? I assume that's pixels? It seems like 40x4500 would be about a millimeter high and across an entire room :) Maybe I'm missing something. Thanks.

Inspirational Hemingway Quotes by Nechama in quotes

[–]Nechama[S] 2 insightful - 1 funny2 insightful - 0 funny3 insightful - 1 funny -  (0 children)

He also advocated writing drunk so that may have accounted for him writing standing up and in the nude! The story - not sure why almost shooting himself every morning would prove anything positive or give him a reason to go on living. If he knew the pull of the trigger, how after some time of doing this every morning and thus learning even better the pull of the trigger, did he then shoot himself? Just a question - not sure if you mean this story has already been written in it's entirety or given the note to self you are planning on writing it and only part is written or something similar. There is also a book called I Killed Hemingway where someone else is supposedly responsible for all of Hemingway's claimed exploits and just allows Hemingway to take all the credit eventually shooting him.

Amish Saiditors. What did you do your your Rumspringa? by Tom_Bombadil in AskSaidIt

[–]Nechama 2 insightful - 1 funny2 insightful - 0 funny3 insightful - 1 funny -  (0 children)

I agree. To be able to know that nothing has been hidden from you in an effort to try to make you stay in the fold through ignorance is wonderful. They get to experience what they choose to experience and then make an informed decision as to what they believe and what they want their life to be like. Although people have accused the Amish of being "backwards" this is one of the most progressive ideas I have heard about from any religion.

Can Narcissists Feel Empathy? by Nechama in Psychonaut

[–]Nechama[S] 1 insightful - 1 funny1 insightful - 0 funny2 insightful - 1 funny -  (0 children)

True but with narcissists they only want to understand the world in so far as they learn how to make it give them what they want.

Can Narcissists Feel Empathy? by Nechama in Psychonaut

[–]Nechama[S] 2 insightful - 1 funny2 insightful - 0 funny3 insightful - 1 funny -  (0 children)

I'm not sure they can learn empathy. If empathy can be taught (I don't know what I think about this), they would have to care enough about others and having relationships with others based on something other than their desires to want to learn it. The ones I've met at least don't even seem to understand such a thing as empathy or real feelings for other based on something other than manipulating them to serve their own wants and needs exists.
