    I have a friend called erm...Gemma, who says that you should try and fix people - the outcasts from society - the failures, the ugly, the overweight, the poor etc

    I say we should just ignore them and not give them too much hope. We need to focus on the clever kids - that's how we make our country truly great.

    It really isn't anything to do with her physical appearance. It's more of an intellectual discussion!

    You should put her down, it's best for everyone. It's cruel to let her suffer in pain like that

    Mend if It will not break you. Leave if they will break you in trying to repair them.

    Good wisdom there. I'm assuming it's possible to mend people without too much self sacrifice.

    I think however my question is - do we focus on the winners or the losers. Helping the winners get better and really do something amazing or helping the losers get out of a bad situation.

    It depends and every situation is different, I know a guy who was a bit of a bully and no one really liked him, I helped him and he was a good guy but a year or so later he was even worse. so i left him

    But I had a friend that was super unhappy but I made him feel good again and he is perfectly fine.
    But overall I say help people who are good become great and let the people who want to help the "losers" help them, in the process they can become great themselves and make a loser good.

    Yes that's very true. I am of the same opinion.

    But what if a kid is ugly, overweight and poor yet extremely clever? Don't they deserve some focus? :confused:

    Out curiosity, what type of super glue will it be. The Tough, expanding, sticks-to-everything glue, or the more stick more surfaces type of glue?

    How do we measure how 'normal' a child is?
