Throughout mans history, a lot of lessons have been self taught.
when something sharp pokes you, it hurts, therefore man tries to avoid being poked.
when something is soft, usually man will try to touch it often.
when something burns you, it hurts, therefore man tries to avoid being burned.
But, every once in a while, theres that one man that grabs the hot coal, and quickly releases it. then, for some reason unknown to the rest of civilization, this man grabs the coal again. and just the same as the last, quickly throws it down.
now, one would think that this man would now understand that the coal is hot, therefore should be left untouched. This man is not stupid by any means, he is known for being an average type man.
But this man keeps grabbing the hot coal.
Could it be bc its pretty? maybe, but the consequences are there, and present in his agonizing burns.
but even after the burns heal, this man always grabs the coal.
