Yeah.
You see...a pimp's love is very different from that of a square.
Dating a stripper is like eating a noisy bag of chips in church. Everyone looks at you in disgust, but deep down they want some too.

Occasionally. [-o<

Why is it that the worst of Mother Nature brings out the best in human nature?

I live my philosophy, it's personal to me and people who engage where I live establish an unspoken dynamic, a relationship of sorts, with me and my philosophy.

Cutting folks for sport is a reality for the poor in spirit. I myself only cut the poor in spirit on Tues., Thurs., and every other Sat.

Because humans are limited in their individual capacity to withstand the natural threat that nature presents. So then out of fear they seek to group up increasing the survival odds. Not sure I would refer to it as "best" in human nature though

No one is forcing them to help each other. They could be looting instead. :evilfun: In reference to Texas' hurricane Harvey.

individual capacity = individual isolation

group up = 'balm' to mitigate the discomfort of individual isolation ... of which survival is only one component.
