    Thanks, I didn't know that! How's the situation about men in Norway? Is it true that are more men in Norway than women and there's 'lack of women' for all those men?

    In Norway, there are 12,000 more men than women. Source
    I'm not sure how true that is... There are many lesbians and many homosexuals too in Norway, I think that should be counted...

    @Huginn ok Muninn: I wish I was 21 forever too, and I think the 20's is the best age, biologically speaking, for a woman to have kids... Early 30's is still a good age, but after that... However, for that you need a partner too... If I'm ever going to have kids, I want them to have a proper family with me.

    Oh, get over the glorious twenties nonsense, people. Life doesn't begin at twenty, and it certainly doesn't end at thirty.

    One of the financially well-established 'married' (key word) couples who sometimes attends our social functions just recently became parents to a healthy son. He was forty and she was in her mid-thirties when they decided to procreate.

    Just remember, regardless of your age, not to concentrate so much on procreating that you impatiently put the cart before the horse.

    I remember dating a woman in my early twenties who, I discovered, just wanted to 'breed' with me, even though I was not even prepared to get married at that time. So I stopped seeing her.

    Just because you never reproduce doesn't make you a failure, anymore than remaining unattached does. Marriage and having children are two things we can't just make happen without risking unpleasant consequences due to wishful thinking.
    Aside from an ever increasing number of mortals who have willfully chosen to worship Satan and his minions, our battle has always been against the powers and principalities operating surreptitiously throughout this twisted world.

    I turned 30 last month and it feels strange and I don't really like it. I want to stay in my 20's forever.

    I already feel that I no longer have as much energy and vitality as I had when I was like 18 or 19 or even 25.

    However, I try to accept it nevertheless. It's a normal part of life after all. And maybe I will be really happy when I'm 65 and sit in my garden surrounded by many happy grandchildren playing around me.

    Stages:

    life is a set of stages - infancy, childhood, adolescence, teenager, young adult, adult, worker, parent, middle age, grandparent, retirement, old age . . . At every stage you have a different set of priorities .


    Maybe a relevant quote here -



    23 of Jean-Paul Sartre’s Most Famous Quotes:


    1.”Life has no meaning the moment you lose the illusion of being eternal.”

    2.”We must act out passion before we can feel it.”

    3.”Nothingness haunts being.”

    4.”Three o’clock is always too late or too early for anything you want to do.”

    5.”God is absence. God is the solitude of man.”

    6.”Words are loaded pistols.”

    7.”Life begins on the other side of despair.”

    8. Unlike the man of sixty the man of twenty never thinks of dying.

    9.”Man is not the sum of what he has already, but rather the sum of what he does not yet have, of what he could have.”

    10.”Hell is other people.”

    11.”Like all dreamers, I mistook disenchantment for truth.”

    12.”One always dies too soon — or too late. And yet, life is there, finished: the line is drawn, and it must all be added up. You are nothing other than your life.”

    13.”It is certain that we cannot escape anguish, for we are anguish.”

    14.”Nothingness lies coiled at the heart of being like a worm.”

    15.”We do not know what we want and yet we are responsible for what we are — that is the fact.”

    16.”As far as men go, it is not what they are that interests me, but what they can become.”

    17.”I know only one Church: it is the society of men.”

    18.”I am no longer sure of anything. If I satiate my desires, I sin but I deliver myself from them; if I refuse to satisfy them, they infect the whole soul.”

    19.”Everything has been figured out, except how to live.”

    20.”Anything, anything would be better than this agony of mind, this creeping pain that gnaws and fumbles and caresses one and never hurts quite enough.”

    21.”Time is too large, it can’t be filled up. Everything you plunge into it is stretched and disintegrates.”

    22.”I will not be modest. Humble, as much as you like, but not modest. Modesty is the virtue of the lukewarm.”

    23.”If a victory is told in detail, one can no longer distinguish it from a defeat.”


    23 of Jean-Paul Sartre's Most Famous Quotes - Art-Sheep
    art-sheep.com23-of-jean-paul-sartres-most…quotes/
    Jean-Paul Sartre (1905-1980) 12 Mar 2019.


    A jew and a marxist too, of course.


    I like this quote he made about Paris in WW II:

    "We were never more free than under the German occupation!" - Jean-Paul Sartre.

    I had to study Sartre in college. I never cared for his views. He was just another philosopher with distorted views of life. He was an atheist. He was a socialist and a communist supporting the french communist party. He did not know how to distinguish National Socialism from communism. To me he was a lost soul looking for something he never found.

    It's complicated. Bad news first, I fear that point of aging where women often become invisible even though I'm not there yet. How people judge your attractiveness does unfortunately affect how many of them treat you in even the most mundane, everyday situations. I'm also afraid of the russian roulette game of painful or degenerative illness that you don't really think about until your 30s unless you've been exceptionally unlucky. Beyond that though, the thing that scares me the most and has been probably the most motivational is the prospect of not having reached my potential.

    The good news is your capacity to tolerate BS from other people plummets (and hopefully your will to manufacture it) and empathy goes way, way up (at least until you're elderly). The world is a deeply unfair place and humanity is much more fragile than you have the capacity to realize when you're very young, it's startling but also good for your soul to start looking behind the surface and beyond yourself. The smaller things have taken on more meaning, as well as foundations that were taken for granted before or simply not noticed at all. The older I get, the more I fully understand that the only thing that really matters is virtue, that everything else can and will be taken away with time. It's one thing to understand that on a removed, intellectual level but education is quite different from experience.

    All in all, I think I'm moving toward an ideal of eugeria more than sorrowful old age, I think that's a better game plan.

    GODS PLAN FOR AGING ---
    Followed by nine facts to remember as we grow older.

    Most seniors never get enough exercise. In His wisdom God decreed that seniors become forgetful so they would have to search for their glasses, keys and other things, thus doing more walking. And God looked down and saw that it was good.

    Then God saw there was another need. In His wisdom He made seniors lose co-ordination so they would drop things, requiring them to bend, reach, and stretch. And God looked down and saw that it was good.

    Then God considered the function of bladders and decided seniors would have additional calls of nature, requiring more trips to the bathroom, thus providing more exercise. God looked down and saw that it was good.

    So if you find as you age, you are getting up and down more, remember it's God's will. It is all in your best interest even though you mutter under your breath.

    Nine Important Facts to Remember as We Grow Older

    #9 Death is the number 1 killer in the world.

    #8 Life is sexually transmitted.

    #7 Good health is merely the slowest possible rate at which one can die.

    #6 Men have 2 motivations: hunger and hanky panky, and they can't tell them apart. If you see a gleam in his eyes, make him a sandwich.

    #5 Give a person a fish and you feed them for a day. Teach a person to use the Internet and they won't bother you for weeks, months, maybe years.

    #4 Health nuts are going to feel stupid someday, lying in the hospital, dying of nothing.

    #3 All of us could take a lesson from the weather. It pays no attention to criticism.

    #2 In the 60's, people took LSD to make the world weird. Now the world is weird, and people take Prozac to make it normal.

    #1 Life is like a jar of jalapeno peppers. What you do today may be a burning issue tomorrow.

    I don't mind getting older (I'm 56 now) but as the years pass I feel more regret for things I never did, the girl I never made a pass at, the roads I never traveled. And for the things I did do, it's getting to the point where I'm not sure if they actually happened the way I remember them, or if I'm remembering them wrong- or even just making them up but believing them anyway (it's the 'the older I get the better I used to be' principle).

    I wanted to be famous, someone people would remember after I'm gone. As it stands, I've got my children but I feel like such a failure to them sometimes it kills me and I don't really know how to turn it around at this point. Hell, Hitler was my age when he died and (for good or bad) look at what he accomplished in his lifetime- I'd just as soon not be portrayed as a mass murderer by most of the world when I die, but his name is likely to live forever. Ivar the Boneless, Frederick the Great, Julius Caesar- all names for the history books... and here I am, very likely to be just another nameless man with no great deeds to his name. No paragraph in a history book, no statue, nothing.

    THAT is what bothers me the most about aging- not the failing health, not being the man I once was, but lack of great accomplishments and remembrance. 56 is by no means ancient, but time marches on and I feel my opportunities to refashion myself into someone to be remembered are fading.

    Just try to cultivate yourself as a virtuous person. That's the best way to be remembered.

    But in the end, maybe those close to us will really only care about the way you behaved to them, not to the world at large.

    Seems like a modern-day curse where we're able to compare ourselves not only to our family, friends and neighbors, but -- thanks to advanced mass communication and lack of hierarchies -- to every single person on the planet. Seven billion people, all potentially better than you. And with easy access to historical records, there are even more potentially superior people to consider.

    It's a soul-crushing perspective and I think the only way out of it is to realize it's not realistic, it's not natural and it's forced upon us by the strange circumstances of modern life.
