    I've noticed alot of negativity and wanna encourage better perspectives here. For folk to look at the glass as half full, not half empty!

    The definition of both "fear" and "hope": believing that something you cannot see will come to pass. The only difference between them is that one is positive and the other negative. I choose the positive! How about you!?

    Let me start:


    "I fear that charging grizzly is going to eat me alive, slowly. Oh WHY did I ever wear that f*****g 'bear-bell'!?"

    vs.

    "I hope bear-spray keeps that charging grizzly from eating me alive, slowly, and if not that he chokes on this f*****g 'bear-bell'."



    See how much better things can be just by changing your own attitude?

    Your turn...

    Peace and love;

    HockaLouis

    I fear that Orangello may take offense to using bears as an example.
    vs
    I hope that Orangello understands that this is an example only and he was not thought of when discussing bears.

    As a pessimist, I find it better to be surprised than constantly disappointed.

    I am learning whether the glass is half full or half empty, Is irrelevant. Its figuring out how to drink the glass while the other two are arguing..... ;)

    from " Gee I hope those Pieces of Ca Ca choke to death on their next meal"

    Humanity in it's self is flawed and the possibilities of doing something right is
    50 / 50..! All in all , pretty good odds .! I believe that even by accident , there is hope to stumble across the right thing every now and then ..! ;)


    Even the most greedy is apt to make a positive mistake to the betterment of the whole..! :) yeap , it's just a matter of time before someone , somewhere does the right thing , even if not by intention..!

    Thank you for your ignorance..! :D

    Well, I guess it's close enough. But doesn't it just make you feel better to look at the world through the prism of content anyway? Ohm...

    I might have said it as...

    I fear the government might be monitoring my internet comings and goings.

    vs.

    I hope the bastards monitoring my internet comings and goings choke on everything they find.
