Let's be honest, we care what people think. I know, we try not to. But we really, really care what people think. That's fine, well it's not really. But it's fine in that we are social creatures and we have relied on and do rely on the acceptance of society for survival and for mating purposes. That's… Continue reading People Don’t Care That Much

They're out there, the immortals. They go to work, buy groceries, teach children. They cry, they scream, they fight, they mess up. But still, they are immortal. At least, that's my take on it.
