If you aren't then be cultured. Read this article:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Culture_of_Florida

Yes but cultured also means refined, educated, sophisticated, well mannered, polite...

Re: bobbym, Are you our maths teacher at school?

Then what is the problem of being a normal human being like us? You will be cultured, respected in society, make friends and be happy in life. Nobody likes an uncultured person(bumpkin).

Being described as a normal human being? Is that something to be desired?

He was a very strict disciplinarian. Remember, this was a long, long time ago and back then fathers were to be obeyed. The older someone got the more prestige he/she achieved. Today, it is just the opposite.

The people who come in here are not average people. They are above average and in many ways represent the hope of this species. The people I see when I look out the window are the average people. They do not respect their father or anyone else's.
