Things Gone and Things Still Here

Four posts in one or Why I could never stand I Love Lucy...

Why is it so annoying to watch someone else make a mistake? Maybe because it affects the same areas of the brain as when a person makes his or her own mistake, Dutch researchers said on Monday.*


In other news, my weekend was good.

We went roller skating in the park yesterday. Here is stow lake, where we got popcorn and soda.


That article got me thinking. I mean, we've all felt this way from time to time. For instance (and this is just an example) I get mad at pretty young girls who complain about a few extra pounds sometimes. Because I feel like they should be spending their youth more doing something other than worrying about how they look like. Is this just because I'm jealous of their youth and beauty? Or is is something else?

What do you call the emotion you have when someone is squandering something that you would treasure? Is it simply jealousy, or is it that they are making a mistake?
