If a man cannot be in a state of lasciviousness during sex, how exactly does it work? I mean, they can't always employ the fake orgasm if they desire to have children. To make it work, do they usually just try to picture their wife is Brad Pitt or something?
I haven't started yet but I've hired a coach whose program primarily consists of insult therapy, which is becoming a new fad. (I've tried the coffee and salad diet, which somewhat worked, but gave me the volcano craps...) I'd rather have mental abuse, rather than physical abuse. He'll be motivating me by telling me (via yelling) how I'm perceived by society.
A Russian reportedly did this in 1935 and became an international celebrity and a fixture in Stalin's court. To many, this vindicated communism. However, he became too popular for Stalin's comfort and thus considered a threat, which called for him to die. But he called it off due to the unexpected invasion by the nazis.
Humanitarians place a huge value on teaching the world's underprivileged how to read or write. Can it primarily be broken down to the fact that in countries or cultures where a person's next meal is almost never a guarantee, as well as having access to utilities that are basic in the developed world, makes reading and writing a very low priority? Also, in undeveloped counties, people tend to have jobs where literacy does not influence the quality of their work.
Excessive exuberance, in my opinion, is just as much a deterrent to life goals as depression. It causes people to sing Christmas carols, show empathy toward people that don't deserve it, impulsive purchasing, squealing at inappropriate times, talking to strangers, complementing people's hair, outfits, and life choices at inappropriate times, excessive wikipedia editing, touching people's faces and excessively visiting aquariums, botanical gardens, and old German castles, etc... Also, it makes the less happier people in the world even more unhappy, resentful, and envious when witnessing them.
In the context of the lifespan of our universe, it seems to me that agewise (when comparing it to our lifespans), it's not even a newborn baby, nor is it still in the womb, but was just conceived by Mr. and Mrs. Big Bang in the last hour.
