I agree with Ali-wa. You can still be calm and understanding whilst having your own opinions- you don't have to be a bubblehead, we're just altering it a little to fit with real life. Tash-la, you're probably right about all the  debates, but great debates cause arguments and wars- it would just be easier if people were willing to not agree on everything but still respect other peoples opinions.  :)

There are negative connotations to war, and I think that war is a bad thing too, but if it happens from a suppressed group of people fighting for their rights and freedoms and it is the only way to go about it, then I think it is a just cause to have war.
And I think people should respect other people's opinions to a certain extent. If someone's opinion is that a certain group of people are worth less than them and should not exist because their existence is wrong, then that is an opinion I will not respect. I'll give the example of the second World War. Many things were wrong about WWII, but in no way do I respect Hitler's views about the Jewish people, among others.

I agree with you that war is just if you're fighting for your freedom and obviously all the stuff Hitler did was terrible, it would just be nice if everyone was happy but thats probably a bit unrealistic   :(

yea, I totally understand WW2, that was definitely a reason for war, but we were fighting for something of value
some wars that are happening is just because one country doesn't like what another country is doing and/or believing
...thats totally sad-making...
I just all in general wish everyone would get along, and maybe not exactly be friends,
but respect others values, beliefs, virtues, etc...

There are things worth fighting for but you're right- if its pointless its just stupid and sad-making. I think that people should try to respect each other and only fight over things that really matter. I wouldn't mind being happy all the time  ;D

I'm kind of clueless sometimes- I think I'm probably a bit bubbleheaded already  :-[  Ye- in summer i forget EVERYTHING and then when I have to do something important I'm shocked that it's that time already hehe  ;D

Me and a friend of mine always used to joke about what we would do if we had a remote control that could pause/stop time. It was a lot of fun. Maybe we could add a bubblehead button to that  :D
