There are two schools of thought in the world that people belong to. Some people believe that to be is to do; when you love someone you will do things that are loving. The other people believe that to do is to be; to love is a verb and therefore you do loving things to love someone.

I'm of the opinion (this week ) that to do is to be, because I think if you do, it will turn out that you always were.

Well, which are you?

I'm sure there are two scools of thought in the world, but that doesn't mean that there are Only two and everyone fits either one!

I agree, false dichotomy!

I've always believed there were three kinds of people in the world; those who can count and those who can't.

He is right. There are only two kinds of people in this world, maybe even in the next.

Those who understands women and those who don't. The former happens to be all female.

Great, that means I have no chance of understanding women in the next life either. I'll just accept confusion.

I disagree BP. The former happens to be nobody.

Please forgive my generalization. If this topic has already run its course I guess that's how it's gotta be.

There are only two things that can happen to this Thread. If it's gotta be, it's gotta be; if not, then it's not gotta be.

This isn't really a martial arts thing to say, and I'll be showing my geek.

There are only 10 people in the world. Those who know binary, and those who don't...

lol...nope not geeky at all, especially since it's wrong. Binary means group of two (0,1). Decimal would be 10.

Then there are only 11 types of people in the world: those who know binary, those who don't, and those that know but are ashamed of it.

I am a geek without that all goodies (*lastguru does not like games... at least most of them... because he actually likes the "Go" game*)

Is there only one kind of people for Zen: the ones who are <insert any word here>, and the ones who are not?
