Re: I don\'t know anything about politics

"The prince" by Machiavelli is an entertaining read. Not because it is very endearing, but it WILL put politics into a historical context for you.

Re: How does my dog know to look at my face?

Facial recognition seems like a good adaptive trait, so having it probably means you survive easier and pass along your genes easier. As for why it looks at your face, most mammals share some facial...

Don't assume just because people don't agree with you that they are shooting you down because they are stubborn, hardheaded or not inquisitive.
