money. i just can't understand how people look down on other people who doesn't have it or only at a middle class. it is as if when a person finds love in a person who is richer than her, he gets to have an impression from others that all he really loved on the girl is what she's going to get from her parents. i sometimes pity those people who looks down on people so much thinking that they themselves should be looking down on them right? sigh sigh sigh. funny people.

I understand why a child won't touch a burning candle again once he burns his finger. I understand why people won't sit on a seemingly dry bench but is marked "wet paint." I understand that humans change as they grow. But what i cannot understand is why do adults still fall in love again and again after one broken heart to another? Why do most people still want to get married despite statistics of divorce rate increasing? Why do they still want to spend so much on a wedding and more so in a marriage when they know there is no blissful-love-guarantee?

The one thing in life I truely cannot understand is how some people are able to hurt others. Strangers or people they claim to love. Abuse whether it be domestic or child. How one human can justify killing another. It's mindboggling and something I'll truely never understand. Is something broken inside of them? Do the wires in their brain get crossed? I know it's usually a viscious cycle that repeats itself. People learn what they're taught.

I asked Srinidhi.She told this to me. The basic idea of television is "radio with pictures". In other words, where radio transmits a sound signal through the air, television sends a picture signal as well. You probably know that these signals are carried by radio waves, invisible patterns of electricity and magnetism that race through the air at the speed of light (300,000 km or 186,000 miles per second). Think of the radio waves carrying information like the waves on the sea carrying surfers: the waves themselves aren't the information: the information surfs on top of the waves. Television is really a three-part invention: the TV camera that turns a picture and sound into a signal. The TV transmitter that sends the signal through the air; and the TV receiver (the TV set in your home) that captures the signal and turns it back into picture and sound. TV creates moving pictures by repeatedly capturing still pictures and presenting these frames to your eyes so quickly that they seem to be moving. Think of TV as an electronic flick-book. The images are flickering on the screen so fast that they fuse together in your brain to make a moving picture (really, though they're really lots of still pictures displayed one after another).

I can't understand why people can't just sit and love one another? People are so mean, and so judgemental. Why can't everyone just accept everyone and show love towards one another and help eachother out in times of need, and just be there for eachother? I don't understand it. People can be so mean and close minded it blows my mind!!

Well of COURSE it's not a license to do anything! it's specifically there to KEEP people from doing bad things to eachother, and from judging eachother, and being mean to eachother.

I can't undersetand how people can continue to fight with eachother, why there are still wars, and why people are still divided by things like race, ethnicity, and religion. to me we are all the same, and nothing should matter. I think that people can all work together, if they just quit being so agressive and selfish. I have had to deal with some strange people in my time, and I have. Now why can't the reest of the world learn?

dbalasri theone thing I do not understand is women letting men beat them then not pressing charges against them, then complaining when the police dont put the beater away. give me a break, they complain about america and not understanding us, well give me a break, we dont understand women letting men hurt them and not pressing charges to get them put in jail.why live with a man who hurts you, that is not love, that is power play and cruelty, do they actually like getting hit? and why blame america for their own stupidity in not getting away from an abusive man.

Ignorance,illiteracy and the not having the economic independence and above all the the brain wash by the elders for centuries that the men is superior and women have to be submissive are the things that make the Indian women bear with these brute.But times are fast changing.And it will take a ling long time for this change to seep into the millions of villages.

People always try to understand things that they dont understand, They spend much time over it, if they get tired and fail, they leave it to fate or whatever destiny they believe on! Well, The most simple thing in my life is ME myself. And thats what i've not understood yet. I am no one to judge other things where as i have not even judged myself correctly So, wanna understand who I AM , play my role honestly towards the things that i overcome or go through my life, and if i think m not wrong! then thats the thing everyone should understand understand, YOU own self

Hi balasri, there are many things in life that I do not understand at all. Life is the most complicated of all. Just when we think that we have things under control and become confident life throws in some unpleasant surprise.The One thing I am unable to understand in life is the constant surprises it throws at you..

I just remember thse words now. There are as many nights as days, and the one is just as long as the other in the year's course. Even a happy life cannot be without a measure of darkness, and the word 'happy' would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness. -Carl Jung

Is understanding one's own self easy? I mean we are what we are and we ourselves are the one we spend most of the time with so it makes sense that understanding we ourselves should be a simple task. Oops, not only it is not an easy task, it is probably the most difficult in the world and I believe that nobody can actually claim that they understand themselves 100%.

Have you ever come across a person who has completely understood himself.Have you ever come across a person who has never told that he has misunderstood himself.And I am sure that you could not have come across a person who is always in a single mood.It is all in the game.We all are alike .So cheer up and keep the ball rolling dear.

hi balasri the one thing that I will never understand is people judging us when they do not even know us, they see us on the street a nd are even rude enough to say did you know being fat is unhealthy? now duh most everybody but a dog knows that, and who are you to say this to me, I see myself in the mirror, and know I am overweight. I dont need a stupid stranger to say this to me. or someone will say to a crippled person, you ought to get a scooter,well now perhaps this person cannot afford a scooter, idiot. why cannot we quit judging complete strangers, if we must judge somebody judge ourselves and see just how good or bad we are, not strangers who did us no harm. judge not lest you bejudged.
