empathy and automobiles

I saw this word, and being stupid I had to look it up.

I have said some blunt things at every automobile site I lurk in. Truthful to the point here comments in return do not matter. It is that kind of truth.My only defense is the past I have with automobiles, and aviation, and strict hiarchy that goes with military and serious decisions. It is a bit more than average, I will not admit it in detail.
I have concluded:

Real science is conquered by empathy..the saving grace, the blunt truthful grace, is the fault in marketing that carries it.


That is all I have to say.

I have a feeling this will end up in a fortune cookie one day.

the proper way to read fortune cookies is to add the phrase "in bed" at the end of each fortune.

Real science doesn't have anything to do with empathy or grace, or saving grace. But empathy and grace have a lot to do with human communication.

The blunt truth is that you do not communicate well. I can tell you have no empathy and don't care what I think, but it's hard to make much sense out of many of your posts, scientific or not, and I'm not unintelligent.

empathy = from German Einfuhlung, a feeling in (in+pathy); from Greek empatheia, passion.
