  • Being ignorant of a car in your blind spot when you're changing lanes is NOT bliss.

  • What is Ignorance but the lack of ability to accept the stark reality

Ignoring the reality of the situation and wanting whatever you wish is bliss.

Yes, people would rather believe what the things they want to be true because it makes them feel better. Reality is just too much for them. Just ask most, if not all, religious people.

@esocial ---- Care to clarify? The way you worded it makes me think you said ignorance may not be bliss because post-ignorance isn't ignorant.... However that's after the ignorant person quits being ignorant, right?

I meant that while you are ignorant, you are in your world and well, "ignorance is bliss." When reality catches up to you, and you are no longer ignorant but aware of your situation, it's no longer a happy situation.

Sorry. I am trying to type fast and with as little errors as possible as a grammar freak because I am not supposed to be on DDO and if my parents catch me, I will be banned permanently.

Macgreggor, Question yourself more, not others. Learn to be a great judge by judging yourself first, then others.

Should I make some personal conversations public? Huh, Macgreggor?

Teen Terror... Hmm, that's a new one Mac. I like it. It'll make a nice name for a book/movie. And lol, it's adorable how you want me banned. I am an IT student so even if they do catch me, I can find a way to come back online.
