To be sympathetic means to know that someone is sad / distressed etc
To be empathetic means to understand how they feel. To put yourself in their shoes.

That's my understanding..

However there's a good graphic here:

No, they'll be going through their selection process which they call the primaries next year .

If you want an idea of who may be included, Ladbrokes having betting on politics including the US presidential elections . Those with longer odds than 50/1 you can usually ignore .

Thanks Cosmos. So, Ladbrokes are suddenly experts on US politics now as well as on which nag will win the 3.30 at Epsom? Well I never.

But thanks for the tip, Cos. I just googled Ladbrokes and, according to their site, Ladbrokes have El Trumpio top of the list romping home at 6/4 (and that's despite the fact that his ancestors were immigrants!).

 Well I never. What has the world done to deserve this?

I wouldn't say suddenly, P-K , they've been offering bets on Politics for a few years now . Not surprisingly they're usually right ; by that I mean the candidate with the shortest odds usually wins the presidential race . With two years to go you can be sure those odds will change in the meantime .

Again I find myself in the minority.
 Mainly because I avoid social media like the plague.
I tend to be a pretty private bloke, so I prefer using a nom de plume.
This brings its own problems as so many abuse that anonymity, to basically bully others.
So many of our internet brethren seem to forget that just because you can doesn't mean you should.

Science and nature / What's the difference between Hydrogen Bombs and Atomic Bombs?
« Last post by P-Kasso2 on 17 September, 2018, 10:05:10 PM »

To be honest, I'm not even sure which one came first.  But my ignorance doesn't stop there.  I don't even know what 'advantage' the one has over the other.
I don't know if they work in totally different ways.  I don't know if one is significantly easier or cheaper to manufacture than the other.
And that is really scary when you consider that I know next to nothing about the most powerful and most evil weapons Man has ever created.
What is the difference between Hydrogen Bombs and Atomic Bombs?  Can anyone tell me, before it is too late?

Science and nature / On averge, what % of a human brain is being used?
« Last post by P-Kasso2 on 17 September, 2018, 09:36:05 PM »

I was wondering if, like our lungs, we do not use the full 100% capacity of our brains. Is there a percentage we don't use? Or this a daft question?

Your Royal Shakespeare link, Duff was interesting reading but come on - it was all pretty inconclusive stuff, especially seeing as the RSC is supposed to be the ace experts in all things Shakespearian.

I'd hoped for a whole long list of real deaths, well-documented hundreds or thousands of real deaths but instead it was, to be polite, pretty much all airy fairy mumbo jumbo.

Just goes to show that actors have over-heated imaginations.

Miscellaneous / Who invented emojis? And why are they all white?
« Last post by P-Kasso2 on 17 September, 2018, 08:58:37 PM »
There seems to be something really askew here. In these days of rampant Political Correctness why haven't the PC mob risen up and condemned all these bliddy white emojis?

Art and literature / Is there really any point in reading Pride and Prejudice?
« Last post by P-Kasso2 on 17 September, 2018, 08:51:36 PM »
It amazes me that Pride and Prejudice always seems to come top of almost
every poll to find "The top ten greatest English novels of all time".

Pride and Prejudice? Me? I can't stand Pride and Prejudice.
It makes me queasy just trying to read it. Then it bores me to sleep.
Am I missing something?
Has Pride and Prejudice any real relevance for us in the 21st century?
What (if anything) is the value in wading through a novel that I reckon is
just an eloquent load of outdated old cobblers?
Or am I wrong?
