    but sharing a veneral disease sounds more involved than outright giving one (and moving on).

    Thanks for sharing that link to Shareable.

    Here’s a thought: when you’re in Kindergarten they force you to share and call it a good thing. When you’re a grown up and want to share, they call it a bad thing like socialism or communism.

      IMO, the kindergarten version of sharing is much more akin to communism than the latter. Being forced to share is not sharing. I’ve always thought voluntary sharing was a good thing, the problem comes when there is coercion. That is when ‘sharing’ becomes bad and deserves labels like communism or socialism.

      • DuhBe says:

        good point SKR. voluntary sharing = good. Forced sharing = bad.

        I guess I never thought too much about it since I share voluntarily – I never considered the side of it being forced upon me as an adult. (I didn’t like it much when I was 5, I remember that much)
