    If the office is paperless, I don’t want it!! I personally own 4 printers 🖨 AT HOME and love having the access of paper to keep, read, document on and have. What is no paper to a writer, when electronics glitch or fail, what is all of it without having something to document it on without paper?! Paperless offices or homes shall not die out...in my opinion!

    Well, there will always be paper, but electronic communication (e-mail) is no different really - now we just have 'digital clutter' on many hard drives or the cloud - you just don't need a warehouse to store it - but it is just as bad these days, just different. That lady would have no problem today saying "Bullshit".

    Nice/kind is underrated. As a neurodiverse person I am constantly abused by people, I was annoyed to see Asperger's referred to as a disease rather than an autism spectrum disorder on some official paperwork, it is not kind. Thanks David

    Just this very day, I told my husband why I must always be by his side: When we met I thought it was his extraordinary good looks, his fabulous dancing or the energy of fun that seemed to swirl around him. Now, I see that in spite of all those lovely things, it is all about the way he treats me and others. He is a kind man to the core. As former Marine, a construction worker and all around Texas good ol' boy, you would not suspect that his kindness is what makes him irresistible to me.

      Chinese Cooking Demystified 1 hour ago If anyone else was sort of struggling to make out her words at times, /u/BeanFootage1 over on Reddit was able to piece together much of what she was saying. Figured that y'all might be interested too: "Hi, I was born and raised in South Georgia. I think I can understand her ok enough. Heres what I hear: "What do you want it for? I thought you were going to put it in the picture?" "Of course I wasn't born until '81, ya know. And there was a long period before that, then the ironworks for a quite a number of years, and then the steel came in...and they couldn't compete with them. Of course the people in the county didn't come to Lancaster like we would today...because uh, the transportation was difficult. We had a little road, railroad, that ran from Lancaster down to Quarryville...and uh, I think the train left Quarryville at uh, 7 o'clock -something like that...and it took us about three hours to get up to...we stopped at every station you know with uh either to take on something...well going back it was always to put something off and to uh, come up where we would stop to pick things up to bring to Lancaster. The freight. And sometimes we would stop at the station...oh the back and the forth(?)...and we would spend 15 minutes or half an hour getting ready to leave. " "And uh, in the wintertime you almost prayed for snow because they you had the sleighs, and it was easier to get around in the sleighs." "By writing letters, and my grandfather...that was one thing in his life I dont think he ever missed getting the mail everyday, and we had to go two miles and a half to get the mail. And uh...as a child that was one of my chores. And uh...I either rode horseback or I had a little two wheeled cart. It looks like, it looked like a racer. You know, it had a step at the back...And thats where you got in...And of course when my , hah!, when my horse trotted...you trotted with it. And in winter time...that was all right in summertime but in winter time, we had a old great big buffalo up that had wrapped herself in to keep warm. " "Well, we had what... the stage coach would come from...it came from Lancaster. Right down. Went from Lancaster, down...I think it went as far as...I don't know, fairfield. (Peacebottom[???]) It went and down, and I think it was supposed to get to the buck[???] at 11 o'clock. And uh, it usually got there at half past twelve. You sat and waited." "And of course...and the the telphone rang - The whole neighborhood went to listen to what...and that...uh...regular news got around that way. Oh, the people were full of that. They could uh...and some times people would...listening to the phone...they would get excited and would join into the conversation. I think it was about 1928, we got a radio. It sat right here. And I dont know what...no, I guess none of you remember 'One Man's family'- but there was a story... 'One Man's Family'...and it ran for, I don't know how many years...20 or 30 years I think...and I remember distinctly it came on, just about dinner time...a little- after. And uh...How we would rush sometimes, if it was a special time. We would rush from the dinner table to get in to here this story - 'One Man's family' and you know...it never ended. And that...I...that was one thing I never liked to listen to something that doesn't end." "And as a rule if people came to make...to stay with you, they brought a [???] luggage with them. And they stayed at least two weeks. No body ever, would ever come and think of spending the weekend. It was just out. And of course, grandfather alwayent the horse...the carriage...for the guests and the he sent...uh...something else to carry the luggage." "Well I...uh...it's a wonderful world to live in today...But uh... I dont think we are any happier...I'm..i'm not any happier than I was in those days. Of course in those days, I thought I had everything that everybody...I had... I thought I had a little more than everybody else had because...I really had no cares at all. And uh...at that time, it wasnt difficult to get anybody to help. In my youth I had no worries. And uh...Well everybody was firnedly, everbody knew everbody else. And uh...it was a...it was a...it was a nice life. It was a good life. It was a regular family life I would say...Its so different now... because the family life isnt what it used to be. As the children grow up, they think more independent I suppose. And uh...yes. They want to be independent...I dont know whether its wrong or right...And there are loads of marvelous people living. But Im most interested in the youth of today...because they are the people that are going to carry to this country...this nation...And I want them to hold their patriotism...And love the country like the old fellas did...Like our ancestors did...Becuase everything you've got in the world, I dont care what you say, depends on what kind of people you have at the head of your government. " "You know those old iron masters were short of pennys[???]. They uh, ruled the roost as the boys would say, but uh ...they helped develope the country because...I know a guy at home, they made the rails, for the...you know...railroad, and in the civil war they made cannons for the army. The northern Army. And uh, and then they made stoves, the old tin plate stoves." "We'll it was a flourishing town, and it was the center of Lancaster County.

    Why do we cringe when we admit that men prioritise attractiveness in a mate but have no problem when women prioritise resource potential. These attributes we seek, both men and women, are embedded in our nature and has led to the success of our species. Society should not demonise men for their nature. It is not amoral to value attractiveness any more than it is for women to value size and strength of a man and the thickness of his wallet. My 2 cents. I absolutely value kindness above all other attributes also.

      @David Hoffman, thank you for your reply. There are many reasons I view this piece with suspicion. The first is there are other stories similar to this one floating around out there. The second, in another rendering of this story, the gender of the baby was withheld from emmaline baby. This was done to "make it easier for her to give the baby up for adoption." As it was told. A critical piece of information that with, could have prevented this whole mishap. And ultimately, the story stands in Stark contrast to the reality that I live in. Why would she be single Soo long, just to marry someone who is half her age? In a community so tightly bound by social expectations, how could a community accept an older woman to marry a much younger man and an outsider at that? Wouldn't she or others in the community find uncanny similarities between the two if not by looks than by mannerisms? Wouldn't she think that this man was similar in age and from a location to the child she gave up. This story creates way more questions than it provides answers. I'm sorry, something is amiss.

    A lot of the guys I work with are the nicest guys I've ever met. I'm in construction working in Detroit. The other day I came in and I still was getting over a cold and my foreman let me work in front of the heater all day, putting things together. We're in a heated building but its still less then 40 degrees on the inside. Im not sure if he did it on purpose but it really made the day more manageable, as apposed to running around all day and coughing and sneezing in the cold.

    Most interesting. Indeed, I currently occupy a college dorm where we have the usual crass humor, but alongside it, we also carry this attitude of kindness or "wholesomeness." Where some people act along the lines of: "I automatically love you because you are a valid human being." My personal opinion is that it is fair baseline way to interact with people and yeah, I wish it were more common off-campus. Still, I feel that automatic kindness alone is limited because it is shallow. That is, for a close partner or friend, I would prefer that we eventually fully acknowledge each other's faults and differing world views; if we still appreciate each other after knowing each other, I think the resulting kindness would carry much more meaning. Overall I guess my college's "we love you for who you are" unconditional kindness reminds me a bit of the hippie communes described in some of Mr. Hoffman's other documentaries ru-clip.com/video/tPVg9EM3lQM/video.html

    David, your point is well taken. I'm all for kindness when it is warranted. However, kindess is a two edged sword. I am reminded of a scripture that says (I paraphrase) "Do not cast your pearls before swine. They will trample them under their feet, then turn and rend you". My interpretation: not everyone is worthy of your kindness. I am 70 and have learned that lesson very well. But thanks David

      KALDOUT WNZ Hello Mr. Kaldout, kindness may be a two-edged sword but the Word of God is sharper than any two-edged sword, “For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” ‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭4:12‬ ““But I say to you who hear [Me and pay attention to My words]: Love [that is, unselfishly seek the best or higher good for] your enemies, [make it a practice to] do good to those who hate you, bless and show kindness to those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you. Whoever strikes you on the cheek, offer him the other one also [simply ignore insignificant insults or losses and do not bother to retaliate-maintain your dignity]. Whoever takes away your coat, do not withhold your shirt from him either.” ‭‭Luke‬ ‭6:27-29‬ ‭AMP‬‬ ““Do not give that which is holy to dogs, and do not throw your pearls before pigs, for they will trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you to pieces.” ‭‭Matthew‬ ‭7:6‬ ‭AMP‬‬ “Do not speak in the ears of a fool, For he will despise the [godly] wisdom of your words.” ‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭23:9‬ ‭AMP‬‬ Love and God bless you, Mr. Kaldout, and may we show kindness to our enemies and bless them, but not give [godly] wisdom nor what is holy [sacred] to dogs [fools] for they will trample on them, in Jesus’s name, amen!

    Excellent! I think you bring up a very important part of the human experience that most Christians are quite familiar with. Logic/ego versus heart/spirit/soul!

I don't say this to be mean because I've known some very kind and generous men, but these traits were always looming in the background. All I ever wanted in a man was an 'equal and honorable' partner in all things. People called me picky .. go figure. 🌹

But if you live from deeper self, which is in fact true self, you live from a place in the heart. Deeper self is the eternal part of you, the awareness that is perceiving the physical mind and body. So I always say to lead with your heart not your physical mind. When you do this. love comes and compassion, patience, understanding. You see your self in other and others in you. Yes, you may not agree with what is happening or what someone is saying, but you no longer judge. You see deeper that in fact we all experience the same emotions, have the same needs. Compassion, love oneness. Interconnected. We all stand together in this world. If you live this truth you will always be rich. You are a wise man. Thank you for your videos.

    Hello Mr. Hoffman! I agree this is a very interesting and insightful study 😄 Jesus said to love your neighbor as yourself and you can fully love yourself when you love God with all your self and know who God created you to be, in His image as a child of God, I find that wonderful. He also spoke of kindness and helping the widows and orphans. Hallelujah! Jesus loves us and died for us so we could live if we repent and believe in Him and obey Him! Love you, Mr Hoffman and God bless you, in Jesus’s name, and have a great day! The Bible is a beautiful read to know God’s love for us and His wonderful plan for abundant life for us! Have a blessed day!

      Praise the Lord! I want to add that Jesus is alive and intercedes for us to this day 😄 You may not know this, but I was born and raised Roman Catholic, then became an atheist because of the false indoctrination of evolution, then a believer of God when I was diligently seeking God read the irrefutable evidence of Him, His love and His people in His Bible and I was born of water and the Spirit and spoke in tongues as evidence of receiving the Holy Spirit, hallelujah! 🙌🏼 God is real! Jesus said you must be born from Spirit in order into the reign of God! I urge you to humbly take heart to this! Love you all and God bless and seek Him today, in Jesus’s name, amen! ❤️

      Steven Farmer. I'm curious at your comment. Film maker is common knowledge and fact. Kind: he comes across as believably kind. BUT what prompts you you to say the man is superficial (shallow, not sincere, no depth) ? To say so would naturally cancel out kindness. Do you know David Hoffman personally ? Just wondering.

    Love it David. I don't know who is attributed with this but I think about it often: "every person you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about - be kind" I do try to live up to this idea - sometimes I fail and oddly enough I find that when I do fail I end up being the one who suffers for it.

    Mr. Hoffman, thank you for this video. I remember my mother talking about the paperless promise when computers were introduced at her place of employment. It didn't happen. I don't like reading from or forming messages on computers. I'm very uncomfortable forming this message now, so you know this means a great deal to me. I prefer to read from paper because the light bounces of the page versus the light coming through a screen. Similarly, I compose better when using handwriting. I feel my brain is more engaged than when I'm typing. As a matter of fact, I had to retype that last sentence several times. I truly believe computers will change the way our brains work and possibly the shape of our brains. Who knows if this will be a good thing or not.

    The paperless office promise has been, and always will be a big sack of horse dung. I will give a good example that also involves the government & Epic. The Health Care Reform now requires the medical industry to be on this stupid as "heck" system (Epic) with the goal (and promises) of making the medical industry "paperless". Not only did it not make the industry paperless it quadrupled the amount of needless paper usage. Every hospital that switched to this piece of garbage system had the paperwork quadruple while the quality & speed of the work in the medical facilities tanks.

    Not entirely paperless yet; I still prefer a physical copy for certain uses - especially when marking up and making notes; there is something more creatively fluid about pen to paper than typing.

      @David Hoffman Hallo, this was a take about todays picture quality rather than judgemental in any way. I dont know why but i struggle with this kind of professional presentation. So for me, the 1080 resulation on a 50"+- sized screen is a little too confronting. in a real life situation i also look people straight into the eyes and i dislike if people permanently shift away with their eyes. thanks for the response

    These adults will each give account to God for their actions & behaviors towards the innocent, the ones they shunned, ignored, refuse to be kind or generous to, loving, ect.. Playing a role completely contrary to the teachings of Christ. They played gods in their own ways & past judgement in their own ways. Using God or religion waaaay out of context. If that's the "religious"mind set they had, Jesus said love thy neighbor and give to the poor, needy, ect. Very sad💔💔💔💔🥺🥺
