Generally there are two kinds of people in the mankind. Cat 1 -> one who lives to eat and Cat 2 -> others who eat to live.
Category I : The people falling in this category does not be having any specific goals in their life except luxury. They just want to enjoy their life on earth. What they feel is they have come here on earth by chance and they must live for themselves and dont care much for any Principles, ethics and goodness towards their fellow humans. These people can compromise anything for a day's meal.
Category II : The people falling in this category have their own goals to reach (other than luxury). They have principles,Ideologies, ethics about their culture, country etc. and humanity. They not only think after themselves but also about their fellow mankind. These people can live a day's meal but not their Ideologies.
Now.. Dear surfer... In which of the above categories do u fall.
Please comment.
Regards (Nanna aasegaLu thousandu)

Sorry!! there is a correction. The last sentence in Cat-2 must be read as "These people can LEAVE a day's meal but not their Ideologies".

It's a moot question, actually.
Let us (wildly) assume that your are right, everything is black and white, and all people can be classified in one of these two ways.
1) If what you say is true, then category 1 people have no ethics or principles. If they have no ethics or principles, then it wouldn't matter to them whether or not they tell the truth. Since no one wants to admit they are selfish pigs and they have no problem lying, they will lie and claim to be Category 2 people.
*CORROLARY: If one of these people feels the need to tell the truth and claim to be Category 1, then they in fact do have Principles and Ethics and are therefore NOT Category 1 people, so they are really Category 2.
2) The remaining people are all Category 2 and should claim to be Category 2. Even if they feel humble and therefore the need to claim Category 1, they will fall into the Category 1 Corrolary and actually be Category 2.

Therefore, the end result of every query should be Category 2.

I love it when people make assumptions about others from their dietary habits...Upendra H20, Would you like a stool sample to see what category i fit into. The poster is probably mad because he is a whopping Buck o 5. And he has no luck with the lady's because he is a matchstick in all ways.
sorry god played a mean trick on you upendra.

Milan ,Take it easy. OR much better ,take a ride through Milan.
Upendra does not deserve any of the Shit that you have so vehemently pelted out. Beleive me, no one wud be interested in piece of garbage like u , leave alone your stool sample.
If u dont like his Question, give some Logical reason like Joel did abt what u didnt like abt the Question or better still, Shut Up.
We are much better without people like u who like to intimidate others without any reason.

Well! There is nothing negative in frankly accepting if anybody belong to Cat-1. Because as many great people say, "If you rectify your own personality and become successful in life then automatically you will become role model for others". Hence most of the people belonging to Cat-1 can also be inspiration to others if they are successful in their ife.
