2 Million Scots Feel They Need To Share This [Pic]. The weird thing is, why would these 2 million Scots feel the need to spend the money for this billboard? Seems wasteful.

I've noticed on here that a lot of people think Scottish people wear kilts all the time and toss logs. Scottish people only wear kilts at weddings and maybe a christening. If you walk down the street pretty much anywhere in Scotland wearing a kilt, you`ll be considered a weirdo. As for the log tossing, that does happen, but only at events called the "Highland Games" which aren`t just held in the Highlands, they`re done all over the country. At these games, it`s just a way of celebrating the country`s culture and heritage, but that`s the only time it`s done.

@I-IS=BORED It seems to me that the way our minds function is determined by their structure and while there may be some randomness in the phenotypical expression of our DNA, it's far more predictable than not. My point is that there is nothing moral about feeling shame for acts that hurt others or feeling good about nurturing or protecting those around us. These feelings are driven by the chemical systems programmed into our brain. The resulting behaviors that we feel driven toward will determine our success and survival in society. Historically human society has excluded (or destroyed) those who don`t express proper signs of guilt and compassion. While it may be the norm for me to feel self approval when I exhibit empathy for others I ought to recognize that my feelings are adaptive behaviors and not ascribe them to some mystical universal value system. That is unless I just like self deception.

@pensky

big hole in all your claims that our DNA determines everything, identical twins don't have to have identical sets of morals, ethics, or personality

and don`t repost things -_-
