      At the very beginning. If you just jump to the middle or end, those who have low amounts of intelligence might get confused. tongue

  28. Teylina profile image60
    Teylinaposted 7 years ago

    Can I play? Been reading here, and caught the comment somebody made about questioning my intelligence (I question it all the time!) if I picked up in the middle or went to the end. But I can't find what started it all. Saw one comment about cruelty to other hubbers, with which I agree, but remember I made some (not cruel, just not nice) remarks to a new hubber who just ranted garbage. Has that got anything to do with what's going on now?  Right now, I'm agreeing with paradigmsearch (which I usually do), who says everything is too darn complicated and camio, who says "I find it's easier to stop trying to understand." Great! My sentiments--but how/can I play? This looks too cool to ignore! Pardon my verbosity! Like Papa-Bear, the words just fall out of my head. I need to stop 'em.

    1. paradigmsearch profile image87
      paradigmsearchposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      No, I never saw that remark.

      As far as I know you are a fellow fine human being in your own right! smile

    2. paradigmsearch profile image87
      paradigmsearchposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      Yes, the only requirement is that your comments be at least as brilliant as mine.

      That should not be too difficult… lol

    There are more questions than answers.

      No, 2uesday. There are more answers than questions. That's the trouble.

    2. Rochelle Frank profile image95

      I think there are more answers-- but most of them are wrong, like in multiple choice quizzes.

      I've never stood under. Nor over. And I've never understood.

    How does one understand exactly?  Is it the opposite of overstanding?  Is it sort of like slouching?

  36. WebbyAvatar profile image57

    I do not understand! mad

  37. Teylina profile image60
    Teylinaposted 7 years ago

    I'm ok since don't think I ever overstood or will overstand, since most of the time I'm totally incapable of even understanding! Oh, Motown, needed that laugh. Maybe that's why I belong here, but I'm shot down if my remarks must be as brilliant as yours, paradigm. I'd quit before I start, except somebody needs to tell 2uesday and camio there are neither more questions nor more answers; they just don't match each other!

  38. paradigmsearch profile image87
    paradigmsearchposted 7 years ago

    The reason that one cannot understand is because it cannot be understood. It is understandable that it is not understandable. Acceptance of non-understandability is really the only understandable thing to do. Once one understands non-understanding then one understands.

          What will tomorrow bring? That is the question! And when tomorrow has come and gone, we'll know the answer to our question, so we'll be one question less and one answer more. But we'll have a new question, of course: What will tomorrow bring? Tomorrow is always another question!

            But are you asking a question that can be answered tomorrow? And will you understand what was asked yesterday?

              camloposted 7 years agoin reply to this

              What will tomorrow bring? is the question that was asked yesterday. What will tomorrow bring? we ask ourselves today. Will I understand tomorrow what was asked today, when today will be yesterday and tomorrow today? I won't even try to understand, but will ask: What will tomorrow bring?
