The mood of boredom, frustration easily push them to social evils such as gambling, alcohol tea, addictions ... Out of this vicious cycle to another vicious cycle. They began to blame the gods, parents and those around them. They look at life with the eyes of the negative and always lamented that fate so unfair to them so much. There is a profound teaching, at the point of the ancients, they did not know: Fairy charge century, the post's responsibilities.
