As a result, a lot of our conversations lately involve at least one Share article My husband has decided to become a pilot. As a result, a lot of our conversations lately involve at least one trivia about aeronautics, or a trick question about atmospheric pressure I can never answer. What aviation can teach us about self-esteem The title of this post, controlled flight into terrain or CFIT, usually pronounced cee-fit , is an actual thing. In aviation it refers to an accident in which an airworthy aircraft, under pilot control, is unintentionally, and without awareness of the crew or pilot, flown into the ground, a mountain, a body of water or an obstacle. When my husband taught me the meaning of CFIT, I immediately pictured a woman me , unknowingly piloting herself into relationship crash like the time I knew the guy was really bad for me on day one but decided to stay three years anyway , and was struck by the element of control in the definition.
February 15 The Wasabi Disaster “I had my first date ever in 9th grade all planned out with a girl I really liked. When I was running through the plan with my friends, they reminded me how socially awkward I was and that if I couldn’t carry the conversation throughout the date, there wouldn’t be a second one. So me being the smooth guy that I am, I decide to prepare by googling ‘How to talk to a girl’ and ‘Conversation starters’ an hour or so before the date. We went to a sushi place at her suggestion. Of course I say I love sushi to convince her I am a sophisticated and worldly gentleman, but I’d never had the stuff before. Turns out that green substance they put on the side of the sushi roll is not, in fact guacamole, it is wasabi sauce which I can only describe as a combination of horseradish, fire and hell. I ate the whole chunk of it and there I am, practically sobbing and oozing mucus out of my nose when I decide to distract her with a tactical conversation starter.
Those with narcissistic personality disorder believe that they’re superior to others and have little regard for other people’s feelings. But behind this mask of ultra- confidence lies a fragile self-esteem , vulnerable to the slightest criticism. Here are ten telltale signs, with excerpts from my book click on title: While most of us are guilty of some of the following behaviors at one time or another, a pathological narcissist tends to dwell habitually in several of the following personas, while remaining largely unaware of or unconcerned with how her or his actions affect others. Loves to Talk About Oneself One of the easiest ways to detect a possible narcissist is by listening to the way he or she speaks. A pathological narcissist loves to talk about himself, often in exaggerated and grandiose terms. Like a master salesperson, they use charisma to get your attention , flattery to make you feel special, seduction flirting , gifts, dinners, get-aways, sex , etc. He or she is not really interested in you, but only what he wants to extract from you often to fulfill an inner emptiness due to the inability to create true intimacy. Lack of Reliability and Follow Through Another way to spot a narcissist is to measure her or his actions against her words.
Buyers Beware Online dating services are booming businesses, and the boomers who are joining them are doing so in big numbers. People aged 50 and older represent 25 percent of membership on the popular dating site Match. But not everyone who hopes to find a mate online is falling blissfully in love.

District Court that claims more than 60 percent of the profiles on Match. People reporting that they were bilked out of money by those they connected with through an online dating site. The Better Business Bureau listed online dating sites among its top 10 scams for , and one consumer advocacy group says its members have lost millions from online dating scams. Is it a case of looking for love in all of the wrong places, or just a few bad apples in an otherwise happy bushel? Truth is, many boomers often reach their 50s and older and find themselves uncoupled, either through death or divorce ; they don’t know where to turn.
She was attracted by his profile, which made him seem smart, thoughtful and interesting. He liked how she looked in her photos, and also thought she sounded fun, interesting, and smart. Everything went smoothly—until they met in person for a cup of coffee. They had many things in common and talked for about 45 minutes. Then John looked at his watch and said that he had to get going. There are many possible reasons that John might have decided not to pursue the relationship further:

May, Interesting post. In a culture that is sexually permissive to the point of 14 yr old age of consent, legal prostitution, lots of cocaine present, and poverty in general, it stands to reason that there would be a good deal more sexual activity. I think that men have often cheated in Latin Culture because it is almost expected and women accept it as a reality. Many times the woman is in NO place to eject her man from the home, so she has to accept it. This widespread thinking, though, would necessarily lead women to the idea that fucking whoever they want is just as acceptable, especially in the age of condoms and abortion clinics and penecillin. Not sure how abortion works down there?? I do recall a monger on a forum talking about how these chicks will even talk to their boyfriends on the phone or email them DURING sex, or right before or after. I think the combination of choosing a woman of some character and principle…. It does require some adaptations from traditional thinking, which can be good, but also can become a disappointing compromise. May, I actually read a similar story to this last year.
Carbon , Radiometric Dating and Index Fossils Carbon dating is used to determine the age of biological artifacts up to 50, years old. This technique is widely used on recent artifacts, but educators and students alike should note that this technique will not work on older fossils like those of the dinosaurs alleged to be millions of years old. This technique is not restricted to bones; it can also be used on cloth, wood and plant fibers. Carbon dating has been used successfully on the Dead Sea Scrolls, Minoan ruins and tombs of the pharaohs among other things. Carbon is a radioactive isotope of carbon. The half-life of carbon is approximately 5, years. The short half-life of carbon means it cannot be used to date fossils that are allegedly extremely old, e. The question should be whether or not carbon can be used to date any artifacts at all?
