    Suffering is not dislike. Suffering is inconvenience, working hard, and putting off other more leisurly activities so that you may achieve your goal (in this case).

    True, I loved college and hung around as often as possible, while doing my best to keep my GPA above 3.5. If I acheived it I was exstatic. The rest of the time I was just happy. lol

    (Man, I miss my highschool art classes.)

    Well, I don't think that working toward a goal instead of giving it handed to you is inconvenient, do you?

    Besides, you can't just learn something that would takes year(s) to learn in minutes.

    If you think that's suffering you need to get a reality check. Suffering is NOT mearly being inconvenienced. Working hard is an acheivment. And putting off other activities is mearly self discipline. Something we need alot more of in society.

    Suffering is losing everything you have. Seeing every one of your children die before they reach the age of 10. Being tortured for daring to dissagree with someone. And when your a teenager, suffering is being told your uncool.

    It's more inconvenient than if you COULD learn it in minutes. Otherwise you could choose to not learn it at all. A lot of people choose to drop-out. Why? If school is not suffering, not inconvenience, not hard work, and not causing them to put off leisure activities, then why drop-out?
    TV does not require suffering. It does however, make a lot of people happy. It's a false happiness though, just like Prozac. Suffering in the common human's mind (especially in America) is effort.
    To quote yet another philosopher, "Life is one long search for happiness." and another said that "The body is a cage for the soul. The body causes desires, which cause misery. The only true happiness, is in death." Thus making the statement that to be TRULY happy, you must die. Was dying not in the definition for suffering?

    So, suffering is effort? I'm putting an effort to reply to your posts, is it inconvenient? not at all, so then it wouldn't be suffering now would it?

    Yes, it would be considered suffering because you're replying with a desire or end goal in mind.
    Desire, suffer, happiness. This is how all things work. Your definition of suffering matters not here. Happiness without suffering is false.
    Just as a prescription of Prozac runs out, so does any other type of false happiness.

    Let me show you that definition again anyway.

    1. To feel pain or distress; sustain loss, injury, harm, or punishment.

    Put simply, your definition of suffering is BS. It's an excuse for angst. It reminds me of a friend I had in highschool who once gave a performance that would have made you think she was clapped in irons every night and forced to do menial labor... because her step-father asked her to clean out the car (it was already nearly spotless). This attitude of "I am suffering the instant I must put out an effort to do anything" is the excuse of the lazy. It's an attitude of entitilement. Well guess what? You're not entitled to anything you don't work for. You're not suffering. You're not even picked on. If you don't work for what you get you are however a burden on others. So perhaps they're the ones suffering.
