It's very sweet of you to hold such an optimistic viewpoint.

The reality would seem to be just the opposite, where there have only been a few families photographed amid thousands of young muscular males.

Time will be the only determining factor in which of us is correct. It is prudent though under any circumstances to hope for the best and plan for the worst. Looks like you have the hope part going for you. I hope the government of France is doing the planning part.

Meeting a woman is in reference to a man reassigning his priorities after falling in love with said woman to revolve around his dedication to caring and nurturing her.

My Boss tried to dissuade me from continuing my relationship with my new GF ( Now my wife for 18 years ). My priorities changed from working from 5 am to midnight to 9 to 5, time for a quickie at lunch and time out for doctors appointments, childbirth and the like.

When you get paid 100 for an 8 hour day and work 19 hours your effective pay goes from 12.50 an hour to 5.26. The boss is billing you out at 100 an hour. When you work 19 hour days his profit margin goes from $1900 per day to $800 per day gross while taking a larger percentage of that $800 knocking it down to $700 vs 1800 for the day. before calculating any other costs of operation and the costs to employ someone that's not visible on your paystub like insurance, taxes, etc.

Silicon valley would do better to destroy the Misandrist movement before it does any more lasting and permanent damage. All it's really doing is preserving the virginity of young intelligent males and keeping them strapped to their desks for their free beer, gym memberships, and office games. How's it feel to be a tool of the financial patriarchy ?

Or abusing the generosity of good people by sneaking your army over the boarder under the guise of refugees.

Too soon to be trying to continue the lame justification of 'escaping the war torn country'. Those ore soldiers invading the next territory. France may well be fighting for it's existence. Again.

With smartphones and social media broadcasting our every little detail through the lens of narcissistic amplification to the entire planet it wouldn't take much effort at all to figure out your soft spots. All it would take is the idea and a psychologist leading a call center where teams work on a list of targets scraping social media.

Oh hey here's one from town x in the state of y and there is a documented outage of y right now. Lets call pretending to have shut y off until they pay the over-due amount.

Then there's the 'find out your new Star Trek Name' games:
Correlating your birthday to words ? You just gave them your Birth-date etc.

If you can't learn to do it well, learn to enjoy doing it badly.
