We cannot change others, we can only change ourselves. Once people realize that, things go much smoother.

If the lightbulbs were indeed lightbulbs then the answer would be 24. ( a tanning bed can change a man)

Two. One to hold up the legs and the other to put on the diaper.

The problem is, you can’t un-screw a human.

i don’t know, because every time someone proposes an idea, a million people will riot against it. but one idea can change a million people, too – those million people rioting will probably experience some sort of change just by being exposed to the idea.

I only takes one – ourself. That is the only person any of us have the power to change.

Depends on the person. Some are resistant to change. Others change sporadically. Still others change at the mere whisper of an idea. The answer to this question is X .

Humans always change. Perhaps not in the way intended, but they do.
