What forces act on spacemen?

Discuss this question

Question found in Space & Astronomy
It would be difficult to say precisely as gravitational forces from various celestial bodies, far and near, large and small will be there. If the spacecraft is not in linear motion - usually they are in some orbit or curved tracks - there will be the centripetal and centrifugal forces. Even if it is in linear motion without - or with - acceleration the momentum shall have the effect of a strong force.

My best friend is a man. We have been friends for over 10 years. We have been there for each other in good times and bad times. I think I might be falling for him. Do I wait and see or do I tell him? I don't want to lose him as a friend. Please help.

Discuss this question

Question found in People & Relationships In General
I should think 10 years is more than enough of waiting. If you are single and he is, go ahead and don't waste valuable time.

My girl friend and I have been dating each other for over a year now...

We have professed to love each other countless number of times during this one year period.

But through out the relationship she has been constantly and incessantly been attracted to other men, and she even flirts with them, and has also confessed that she has sexual thoughts about them. I have told her on several different occasions that this behavior of hers is extremely irritating, while she tells me she'd change. And even after several instances I've found her repeating the same and even confessing the same. At one point, I even broke up and told her to leave. Only this time she begs, cries and pleads she'd change and asks me to take her back. Obviously I crumble to this cause she is the one I love and I take her back. Even now she repeats the same behavior.

Moreover, she still loves one of her male childhood friend’s, whom she’s never had a romantic relationship with except for friendship. She professes to love him. Even though she claims that he is not the logical match for her. More than love, I believe it was reasons of security that she wanted to be with me and she confesses to me, a major chunk of the reasons she wants to be with me is for her security.

Our relationship is on the threshold of a break up and I am preparing myself for it...

I want to know if this behavior of hers is normal and common to all women, especially to the ones they claim to love? If so why? Is it expected? What do you think should be my obvious course of action as I can’t stand this behaviour? I would be grateful to any insight you could offer on the matter.

Ps: Her father is an alcoholic, a verbally abusive one and was since one her childhood. She's also had plenty of traumatic childhood experiences...

With this in mind, does it change your perspective to the initially asked questions? Does she need help? What should I do? Should I break up with her, knowing that the ultimate decision is mine? Or Should I still support and back her up?

Question found in Dating
1. I know many girls - young women - who are so loving and lovable, so good natured that it is difficult for them to limit to just one person the affection or love that is so abundant in them. This need not mean that they are unfaithful to the partner. It is difficult to constrain them and is better to let their abundant love manifest in positive ways as long as sex is not involved.
2. If you really love her for her sake try not to create a guilty conscience in her. To love is not wrong. She should be allowed and even encouraged to be good to others provided she understands that this has to be platonic love.
3. Do not be a jealous friend. Take an interest in her other friends and be a friend to them and consider them as common friends and not as rival. This may change her attitude to them. As far as possible allow her to meet and enjoy the company of these friends in your presence. This will discourage others from having the wrong idea and taking unnecessary freedom.
4. Have you two considered marriage? Propose to her and make it clear that after marriage further flirtation with others would be more serious and treated as such. Marriage may help change the relationship for the better.

Comments :
better than the previous one, dont have the strength in me to do so...

Its unlikely she will change and any act of flirtation during the marriage will disastrous...

It will wreck me and wreck us... I'm sorry but i am far too insecure...

Got to move on... Got to...

Is anybody able to translate a short quote for me?

I desperately need a translation of: "Every man is guilty of the good he didn't do." - Voltaire.

It's such a short sentence that I don't want to go to a service just for this. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Discuss this question

Question found in Latin Language
I assume that you are asking for an explanation of the quote. It could be this:
Usually we consider crime or guilt as some wrong that we do. But we must remember that we are to blame if we do not do our duties; if we do not do the good that we are supposed to do. For example, If I see someone in dire need of help and if I am in a position to render some assistance and if I do not do that help. I am guilty of the negligence. ( In the Biblical story of the good Samaritan the first two - the priest and the levite - are thus guilty.) In the Catholic act of contrition there is a phrase; "I have sinned ... in what I have done and what I have failed to do, ..."
I hope the explanation is clear.


Comments :
Sorry I was looking for a latin translation of this quote.
That is why I posted it in the latin language section.
I will edit the question to make this more clear.

Why is Jesus story important for Christians?

Discuss this question

Question found in Religion & Spirituality In General
Jesus story is not what is important. It is the teaching of Jesus. It is important to anyone. His teachings are very unique - so simple yet so profound. Let me point out a few aspects of his teaching.
1. He taught that God is our father and we are all children of God, that we must therefore love one another, that we can and must trust in God as he is a loving and merciful father.
2.He taught that on the last day we shall be judged on the basis of what we did to our brothers - the least of his brothers - on what we did about the hungry, the thirsty, the suffering ones.
3. He said that we must not put our trust in material things like money and that we must not worry or have anxiety.
If you read the gospel of Mathew you shall see many such simple teachings where importance is given to humans especially the downtrodden and the marginalised. He was a great humanist.
It is a pity that often the Christians forget that he was a teacher nor bother about his teachings. They, many of the preachers included, always speak of being holy by attending services, saying prayers, or donating to the church. They forget the teachings of Jesus.
