How many haystacks have you found in your life?

None

It's hard to find haystacks in a pile of zillions of needles

It also hurts

When you're on Amirite, it's like it's your Universe...when it's really more like a tiny closet.

Which is the real chair and why?

If those examples speak on behalf of all chairs by being representations, then there has to exist in them the qualities of a chair.

(Except for the opening sentence a chair in all my examples means a "chair").

Well put. But the "qualities of a chair" doesn't mean they are chairs.
A chair is what a chair does. No one can sit on the definition of a chair. No one can sit on the two-dimensional, artistic impression of a chair. The chair in the middle may be made of paper mache which would render its usefulness as a chair limited if not impossible. Even if the chair in the middle were made of wood, the wood may be rotten or balsa wood or poorly assembled or any number of disqualifying attributes.

Is a folding chair a chair if it is in the flat, unopened position? Or, in that example, is it merely the possibility of being a chair? In that example, again, what if no one knew how to unfold it? How about this: if a chair has a load capacity of 300 pounds, is it still a chair if a morbidly obese person (500 pound plus) couldn't use it? Another example: if a chair were in pieces in a box, it can only become a chair once it is assembled, right? Another: does a chair have to be seen or touched to be a chair (does it exist if no one knows it is there?). If the chair were never sat on would it still be a chair? If a chair fell in the forest would it make a sound?

Nothing is real. If nothing is real, then the whole concept of nothingness is not real, which means the concept of nothingness has to be real which means something is real.

And I'm confused by my own comment.

Reminds me of the time a guy proved a poorly cooked meal is better than god...

A poorly cooked meal is better than nothing
and

Therefor a poorly cooked meal is better than god.

If we accept that nothing is real than surely it is real. That implies nothing exists - which is our point to begin with.

There is reporting that tries to be unbiased and some that doesn't, thus you'll find some outlets that are less biased than others. I don't think it's fair to say "they're all biased, so they're useless"; the ones that try to be unbiased shouldn't be lumped in with ones that make little or no effort to eliminate bias.

Secondly, "bias" is not the same as "fake news". Bias just means that some opinion may be injected into the reporting; it doesn't mean that there must be any actual lying. As long as a person can sort the hard facts from the opinionated interpretation of those facts, bias may not be a problem. People also tend to not notice bias if it's subtle enough and/or agrees with their own opinions and worldview.

News reporting is not the only entity that suffers from bias, of course. Our biases colour almost everything we do. In some cases it is simply unavoidable.

I agree. It's important to be humble, and you have to follow in order to know how to lead. But I was getting more at (or at least I think I was getting more at...this post was made 2 years ago so forgive me if I can't accurately discern what was on my mind when I posted) if you've made up your mind that you can't accomplish what you want, that you're too this and that and haven't made up your mind that you CAN, that you ARE a leader, that you have the potential, then you'll likely never go anywhere.

Children come up with great ideas. The best employers understand how employees feel. Being a leader doesn't mean forgetting what it is like to serve and being a great mind doesn't mean giving up fantasy. Great people use the past in New ways not as stepping stones. Success is not just confidence and some of the best doubted the most.

It's difficult to even fathom life without music, because it's such a big part of all our lives. I listen to music all the time, even if I just have the radio on in the background.
Music is a very powerful thing, that's why certain religions, or totalitarian governments ban certain music, or even all music entirely.
