Default For those who long for how it used to be...

OK, I love older Toyotas more than newer ones. "I just don't get it."

Strike one.

Some of you wouldn't have anything made by Toyota that isn't 30 years old or older.

Strike two.

Read this and weep. Your world getting smaller?

It's true.

Then again, I just hate IFS offroad. I suspect that if I was 19 I'd still hate IFS offroad, unless of course the heated seats were getting me l**d

Agreed. It's as true as the other point of denial - that I won't become like my parents. While I certainly try to avoid certain specific traits that I disliked about my parents, at the same time I observe myself almost every day doing something just like my mom or dad did it. Scary...

It makes you wonder if you parents ever said, "I'm never going to be like my parents!"

Kind of reminds me of 1992 house. It's even funnier when you realize this was written in 2005, six years ago.

Apparently there were differences between the Jewish suburban subculture in New York and WASPY Littleton in 1992...

I long for a time when things were simple and came across an article today that made me smile. Debating pain verses pleasure seems fairly basic.

From an article on intrinsic vs. extrinsic value from the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy

"Many philosophers have followed Plato's lead in declaring pleasure intrinsically good and pain intrinsically bad. Aristotle [384–322 B.C.E.], for example, himself a student of Plato's, says at one point that all are agreed that pain is bad and to be avoided, either because it is bad “without qualification” or because it is in some way an “impediment” to us; he adds that pleasure, being the “contrary” of that which is to be avoided, is therefore necessarily a good."

I agree with this thought as well, "...Philebus argues that pleasure is the highest good, Socrates argues against this, claiming that pleasure is better when accompanied by intelligence"
