Everyone knows... good weather always comes after the bad passes.

But since we’re still in the midst of one of the biggest financial corrections to be seen in our lifetimes

During the 2000 recession, the Dow Jones dropped ~-80%. So far in this bear market, the Dow Jones has dropped ~-45%. Hardly the "biggest financial corrections to be seen in our lifetimes" that this article claims.

borderline personality disorder is rampant here.

Just curious... Why do you think she is borderline.? There's nothing in her history to suggest that she would "suddenly lash out", or have an outburst of anger...

same as a beta male (in Pick-Up terms, a "nice guy").

Oh yeah, on a last note, if you can sniff out a beta female from the start of a relationship. Don't marry her. Let someone else deal with her. This type of woman is often a nut-case and will bog you down physically and emotionally. It's the alpha females you should be pursuing.

Also further lending evidence to Munchausen syndrome is her acting ability, both at the murder scene, and at the funeral.

This woman definitely has a personality disorder. Just as there are many classes of males ranging from alpha, to jerks, to beta, this woman is definitely a beta, d/t the fact that:

"she seemed to feel that since he worked, taking care of the home and the child was her responsibility".

She's probably of the dependent personality disorder type (anxious and nervous). Her son's activity also caused her to become relatively isolated d/t the embarassment, thus also bringing out some of her avoidant personality trait. Also, she incured far too many illnesses since the start of pregnancy to be taken seriously. Coupled with the personality disorders described, we would call this Munchausen syndrome (feigned illnesses).

Over the past 63 years I have spent several long tours in Japan, 50s, 60s and 80s. I've witnessed her growing from probably the most crime-free country on the planet to today's crime-ridden.

Money, money, money. And the population has doubled over the past 60 years.

She was crime free when her stock market index was at an all-time high. The 10% average annual gain rule no longer applies to the Tokyo Stock Exchange...

Sounds like you got even more pissed after seeing the movie. Why'd you go see it in the first place?

A lot of people praised this animated feature for its energy. Meanwhile, they are frowning upon Wall-E, claiming that it preached too much about being nice to the planet, etc., and that Wall-E dealt too much of politics to the general audience, who just wants an enjoyable family movie, and hence the turn-off. Go figure.

"Many children today growing up, without learning much of real world and real future woes, with so much escapism tales on tube and other multimedia."

D'Oh! In case you haven't realized, the majority of HP readers are either young girls wanting to know what it feels like to grow up (as a boy) without having parents to constantly nag them, or adult women wanting to re-experience their teenage years.

HP has never been about escapism. It's about (re-)experiencing that period in your life where you didn't have to worry about a single d**n thing, especially from your parents' constant naggings! This is the SOLE reason for HP's immense success. Anyone can RELATE to this period in their life and being freed of parental rules and authority.

"When guys they turn gray they are called "distinguished" while women that turn gray are called "old." It's a societal difficiency I think."

No. Guys can still reproduce at that age. A guy becomes more financially "powerful" as he ages. Thus, his status in society ever increases. But for a woman, her reproductive ability diminishes as she ages... She is said to be getting "old". ;)
