There must be intelligent life in TO. Join this informal discussion group where we meet to discuss a wide range of provocative and challenging topics and pontificate on anything from China to Gender, from Cults to Culture. The perspective can be philosophical, social, cultural or scientific, contingent on the topic or the point of view members have. It is a celebration of intelligence, wit, debate and the opportunity to hear different points of view. As long as we inspire our intellect with stimulating, animated, conversation, we have a reason to celebrate!

    Everyone says work hard, you will get the result. But my experience has been many times only hard work is not sufficient. So I wonder, Is there something called 'Luck'?
