I have been living for 38 years and actually paying attention for about half that time, carefully compiling my "worst of" list of facts about life.

I'll spare you the suspense and jump directly to #1, which is the fact that we have a deep capacity for love and caring about other people, and that we are utterly powerless to do anything about the fact that horrible and painful things are going to happen to them (this inevitability is fact #2).

This is also my main reason for not wanting to have kids -- this powerlessness would utterly break my heart.
