    Is the moon the sperm to our egg (Earth)?

    All this talk on "where did our moon come from?" (sparked by Bill O'Reilly) has got me thinking about our moon. Do we actually know how it got to be where it is and how long its been there? The meaning of life may forever escape us, but the origin seems close..

    I've known about this site for a while now, but I've only recently started checking it daily and created my own account. They talk about stories from around the world as they happen, and it truly displays the speed of the internet. It's a remarkable community, and I suspect a large minority of...

    Thought Control

    I find that while interacting with others, I can manipulate people's thoughts and perspectives so that they could end up being more or less positive (obviously this doesn't work on everyone). But if someone is having a bad day, I'll try to change their perspective so that they start thinking...

    Could Robots Ever Appreciate Music?

    I mean even if they had robot ears.. Good music is hard to explain, but I damn well can't conceive that robots could ever get ANY of it. In fact I wonder what other mammals, if any, can appreciate music. I've heard of house cats and dogs supposedly acknowledging music by sitting close to the...

    Turning Off Your Ti

    I feel like this is one of our great struggles as INTPs. Being that we're always at a state of thinking, it's hard to talk to other people from time to time. We have to turn off our Ti to a certain extent in order to respond and interact with them in a timely manner.. thus the need for Ne...

    Intuition and Feeling

    I'm wondering if intuition and feeling come from the same side of the brain, while thinking and sensing come from the other side.. Is this true? It seems like classic gender roles would put men on the thinking/sensing side of things, while feeling/intuition would be for the women. I feel like I...

    Using Different Voices When Talking

    Do you use different voices while talking to different groups of people? I know I do, and I've definitely noticed others doing this as well. For instance, my ENFP friend was renowned for how he would talk to different cliques of people. He'd talk to Europeans as an English man (don't ask me...

    Camera Vs. Pistol (Which Would You Rather Shoot With?)

    Are you afraid of robots?

I don't want them to do anything apart from assembling cars or other heavy lifting (if even that). I'll admit it, I'm afraid of robots. I tried to look up...
