Research has shown that girls aged 15 and under who are exploited for sex by adult men tend to become lifelong victims who view their self-worth solely in terms of sex. They’re also more likely to become pregnant, abuse drugs, drop out of school and attempt suicide.
You owe it to yourself to seek counseling. This man knowingly exploited you for sex.
Are we really concerned that this man will lose his career? There are thousands of qualified teachers out of work who are more deserving of a career than this man.

Q: How do you account for sudden leaps forward in the sphere of science? Do you ascribe your own discoveries to intuition or inspiration?
A: I believe in intuitions and inspirations. I sometimes feel that I am right. I do not know that I am. When two expeditions of scientists, financed by the Royal Academy, went forth to test my theory of relativity, I was convinced that their conclusions would tally with my hypothesis. I was not surprised when the eclipse of May 29, 1919, confirmed my intuitions. I would have been surprised if I had been wrong.
Q: Then you trust more to your imagination than to your knowledge?
A: I am enough of the artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.

this is true under the newtonian model of physics, but not necessarily true under the quantum model which deals with physical properties at microscopic scales.
there’s a theorom called bell’s thereom which basically says that any phenomena that is both deterministic and local (meaning only influenced by it’s immediate surroundings) must satisfy the bell inequality. quantum mechanics violates the bell inequality.
so, according to bell’s thereom you must give up at least one: locality or determinism. there are several interpretations of quantum mechanics and none of them have been proven. some are non-deterministic (copenhagen interpretation) and some are non-local (bohm interpretation).
the point is we don’t know whether or not we have free will. but we certainly have the illusion of free will. and that’s pretty cool.
Next time use something like Triflow:
