This Weeks Discussion Theme: Motivation thread
The top response for this week’s theme is “Motivation thread”!
Yeah that’s right! Get motivated, reach your goals and improve! This is what this thread is all about!
Some discussion ideas:
- What motivates you?
- Share a motivational story/quote/phrase.
Last Week’s Poll Results:
Top three responses
- “Exercised at least one day this week”,
- “Home cooked meal at least one day this week”, and
- “Outdoor Activity”.
I’m a little disappointed to see only 2 people myself and someone else reported “reached out to a friend this week to help them”. We wont ever have a “Consume Product Ville” if we don’t make lasting friendships and help each other out. You get back what you put into family and friends and it’s always worth it in the long run.

Consume Product Book of the month: Brave New World, Aldous Huxley (1932, 300 pp)
Next book club thread is currently scheduled for November 6th. A poll for the next book of the month will open on November 1st.
Many here probably know the theory that dumb and smart people often tend to agree on some basic truths, whilst 'midwits' sometimes seem to get them wrong. I'd like to propose a theory that European states often support immigration because they are run by midwits.
Simply put, the more intelligent on average (albeit by only a small margin) countries like Japan or Israel tend to be very anti immigration/ ethnic diversity. Dumber countries also seem to have a high affinity for their own kind (many African countries are like this).
European countries are led by midwits who have gone the middle route and decided that immigration and diversity are actually wonderful things and totally do not destroy countries. They are, of course, wrong.
One may ask why Israel doesn't have open borders, or why Japan is so ethnically homogeneous; it may well be because they are not likely to be led by midwits. Perhaps we should point this out in future (unless of course I am completely wrong).
