I am an opinionated person, who calls a spade a shovel. Has a dry sense of humor and doesn't take much seriously. Have lived in three different countries, Poland, Sweden and now Australia. Have been married, , divorced, married and yet again happily divorced. Loves to read, to travel sometimes and spend some times with the people I love. Politically lazily active, always on the side of the underdog, wherever the underdog may come from. Always curious about life and what makes others tick. Happy to be single but would be happy to be with someone too, I think.

Jolanta comments on Jan 13, 2020:
That is complete nonsense about Judaism. Very religious Jewish women are only looked at as baby makers, they have many laws, women are not allowed to show their hair, thus wear wigs, the man is the boss, education is not allowed either.

Thank you very much for doing this. I live in Canberra and we are on alert. There are fires around us. The days are smoky and hazy, the air quality is awful, people keep inside, when driving, lights need to be used to be seen, stores are out of masks, but besides that we are still fine. Other parts are not so lucky and our prime minister, aka the Happy Clappy still refuses to say that climate change is adding to the problem.

I don't understand why people in the US or anywhere els in the world would feel a need to have a gun at all unless you are in a war zone, but then perhaps people in the US think they are in a war zone. When will you realize that you are being manipulated by the people who make guns and bullets.

How do you stop swearing?
Jolanta comments on Jan 3, 2020:
I think it is great that you want to stop swearing, or do you? Some people say that people who swear are more intelligent than those who don't. I think it is just justification for using bad language. When you get angry with someone you want them to know why you are angry, if you start swearing it gives them a reason to stop listening to you and it escalates the issue. So lose, lose, instead of win win. Besides it make you and you fellow swearers look ugly and you have such a lovely face, don't make it ugly.

We have a famous football player who is extremely religious here. He was sacked from his very lucrative football club for saying that guys and people who had abortions would go to hell. After he was sacked he took them to court but did not win, it was settled out of court in the end. Anyway now he is saying that the fires that are raging around Australia is gods punishment for letting the guys marry or allowing women to have abortions.

Brain Sees Men As Whole, Women In Parts.

Some years ago I saw a documentary on Cuba. How men and women saw each other. It was lovely, men really appreciated women no matter if they were fat or skinny, and women appreciated their own bodies too. They women were very confident in their bodies, ugly or not. It all has to do with advertising, there is not advertising in Cuba about how women are should look.

Your in-person community?
Jolanta comments on Dec 23, 2019:
The so called face-to-face social or religious communities often provide, anger, guilt, disappointment and sometimes death too. Just look at the 600 + years of Spanish Inquisition. If one likes one can start ones own ongoing community that has meaning. Just get some like minded people together, to meet for friendship and mutual interests and those interests can just be anything.

Why indeed, but there are a lot of people who have the "need" of finding the meaning of life, instead of just being and enjoying. They seem to think that humans are oh so very "special and important" that there can not possibly be nothing more to we are born, we live and then we die.
