By the way... would any of you happen to have a sledgehammer and the home address of the twit who thought it would be a good idea to make setMinimumSize(Dimension size) NOT implicitly call setPreferredSize(Dimension size) when the min is larger than the preferred, or the preferred is undefined? I'd like to have a little conversation with him about that programming decision, to make it so Swing components will prefer to size something at below its minimum functional size if you don't explicitly set the preferredSize as well.

Just Thoughts are Just Fine

Since I've not heard anything about this prior to the discussion herein, pretty much anything you say is insightful and interesting. It's right kind of you to be all discussive about it. {Or, "it is rather nice of you to lend your knowledge in a dialogue regarding the matter" if phrases like "right kind" don't do it for you.)

I'm curious: what is it, would you say, that makes a human "human" beyond the biology? I don't think I could offer a good answer to that question. (It's okay if you can't, either.) I know this question gets away from the dragon side of things a bit, so if it's leading outside of where you feel like going, it's okay if you don't continue along this line. You say you identified as human throughout your childhood but have subsequently realized you're something else. What is it, would you say, that defines human that doesn't fit you quite right?
