      SF, one of my fav cities too. But more because of its culture and diversity and its trance to engage and embrace everyone. I'm a hippie for a reason

      Lucky! I'm on the east coast and I haven't been here long enough to make it out to the west coast nearly enough. I did have the very unfortunate experience of having to go to Las Vegas for work. I'm not sure if it was where I was staying specifically or the time of year I had to go but I found it to be an absolutely miserable smoke-filled place. The only things that I found really arresting were all the glass sculptures in the Bellagio. This was the ceiling:

      10411254_10204252276932266_3700669390808150564_n.jpg


      And this was the check in counter. The balloons in the back are glass!

      There is always a reason for being victors though. For a philosophy and a system to be valid and relevant and thriving even after 3000 years is amazing. Socrates, Aristotle,Plato, Pythagoras were unbelievable. A mere book brought over to Europe changed the course of humanity. Indus, Egyptian, Inca civilisations have not really effected our current lives but the greek philosophy has.

      Yes it did. For better or worse, that is up to debate.

      Truer words.....
      That is exactly what I said about Las Vegas. No matter where you go, it smells like smoke, I honestly do not see the appeal. My favorite part was little Italy in the Venetian. We arrived in LV at 1 am and then headed down to the Venetian at 4am yet it felt like day time inside. Due to the painted ceiling, it really messed with our mind. Hmmm let me see if I can find any photos of SF for you.

      Umm who stole lands from millions, killed off the natives, had slavery for a couple of centuries and didn't give women rights until the last century? And my dear uncle do you have any idea about how these cures came about? The inhumane treatments of blacks and natives, the experiments that were done on them? Do HeLa cells ring a bell? Tuskegee study? Please do read on them.

      They were following more Christian values then. The fall of Europe to Christianity threw the planet into darkness. Human equality and rights are more secular values derived from Greek and Roman culture. I don't remember these guys having harems of women they captured to rape as they please. Despite having the power to enslave the planet they allow freedoms and pay good solid money for resources.

      You don't remember? Were you there? Have you ever taken Native American history bobby uncle? A lot of Mexicans have both spanish and native roots, why do you think that is? The Spanish came and respectfully married the women of the natives? Uh no! Also you mentioned Inca civilization, I can't say about them for sure but you need to read biography of Hernan cortes. He was one of the conquistadors and according to him, Aztecs had libraries of information which the spanish destroyed upon conquering. So that is why there is not much credit to their contribution to the modern world as with probably many other civilizations. Also, lol at christian values, did you know a lot of slaves that were brought over here were Muslims? They were beaten until they took on their christian name and do you really think the slave women were respected and left alone by their owners?

      Again the Spanish and Portuguese were following the Christian culture, Tell me when they had harems with a thousand captive women? I remember the highly Christian general was responsible to wipe out the Mayan culture and language. The declaration of rights of man changed the world and it was derived from Greek text

      ^^^Also I have been to the Island of the women in Mexico where this pirate built a castle on the island for the women he loved but she refused him and he left the island for ever. He did not force his will on her.

      Omg @Bobby1 that is not how history works. You can not pick and choose, we are going in circles, best to leave it at that.
