Reasons for [a non-religious person] to not get into Prostitution in Pakistan

1. You could be black-mailed.
2. Once you get into contact with pimps other then black mailing you if they see you as a weak person they could extort money from you because you are weak and they are strong and they have no moral obligation to not extort money from you.
3. If the police catch you they can extort you by filing a case of rape against you.
4. No medical check-ups in the prostitutes: This is not a regulated industry so the prostitutes are exposed to all sorts of diseases some of which such as Herpes Zoster are communicable through skin.
5. It’s addictive: If one gets involved in prostitution it’s hard to get out especially when there are no other sexual outlets.
6. I don’t know the psychological impact it will have on a person but that is an important area to look into.

In Amsterdam prostitution is legalized which means this:
1. If somebody harasses you, you can go to the police and take help
2. Prostitutes go through regular checkups and have a medical record that you can demand to see.
3. Pimps can probably be sued if a customer gets infected.

In Singapore:
Brothels are part of the malls. It is almost like you go to Park Towers and there is a brothel there!

Explanation of the movie 'Revolver'

I saw the movie for the umpteenth time last night and I finally got it.

This is what the movie says:

1) In every game and con there is always a victim and there is always an opponent. It's good to know when you are the former so you can become the latter.

2) But the question is how do you prepare yourself for this game?

3) You only get smater by playing a smarter opponent.

4) The smarter the game the smarter the opponent

5) Checkers is an example of such a game. Chess is a better game. Debate is an even better opportunity to learn and so on.

6) But the question is where does the game stop? or one can ask what is the smartest game one can play?

7) The answer according to the movie is: "The game of con you play with yourself".

Why feedback is important

We learn about the world as we get feedback from things within it such as from family, friends, mentors and even books.

Feedback can tell you where you went wrong and affirm what you do right. It can thus help you predict the future.

Interestingly there are people I have met who question the importance of feedback. They say: “I can figure out everything I need to on my own. I don’t need feedback like others do.” This is not true. In fact there is a big danger lurking in this notion.

If the world you are creating is your own you might get stuck in it or some part of it and not know what to do next.

If however, this world of yours and all parts of it are based on some feedback you will always know who to ask if you get stuck.

Somebody once said that "fundamentally we are here not to be seen, but to see" i.e. to see things outside of ourself. You will notice that all growth you have had has owed itself to some consistent feedback.

My Criteria for my marriage partner

1) She should be a home maker. 10 on a scale of 10
2) I should be able to fall in love with her and her with me … 7 on a scale of 10.

First criteria:

10 on a scale of 1-10 for this criteria because I consider my family my second self. The better my partner will be at making my family the best the better off my second self will be. Who doesn’t want to aim for the best? In accordance with this she should have the best of the characteristics that every home maker should have:

1) Intelligent
2) Practical
3) Ability to take stress and bounce back – agility of mind
4) High level of commitment
5) Principled
6) Caring
7) Want her children to be the best
8) Want to learn how to make her children the best

Of course there is an ideal woman out there who would rank very high in all these areas. But then I have to be practical too. I would want to marry the most ideal woman who is compatible with me. Compatibility is covered in the second criteria.

Second Criteria:
