    Eyeglass Problem

    The same thing happened to my daughter. She discovered the mistake by turning the eyeglasses upside down. Unfortunately, people stare a lot when they see her wearing the glasses upside down.

    Smell

    It could be your clutch. Were you doing any riding on hills where you had to start off, uphill from a stop sign, while making a left hand turn and perhaps slipped the clutch a little?

    "Choicers"

    I understand your point, as well. The mere definition of the word speaks of the inability to free oneself from the grasp of such an affliction.

    Type 2 Diabetes

    Akbeemer,

    I'm not sure I understand your use of the word, "hubris," as associated with type 2 diabetes or addiction.

    Saving people

    Paul,

    Since you have located your Bible, look up Romans 10:13 and you will see that your assumption about people not being saved is in error.
