PBP - Balance
It's not the same kind of balance, but look at that! I'd need a gallon of superglue to do that!
Everything is about balance. Everyone likes to compare dichotomies: good and evil, wild and civilized, order and chaos, life and death... Realistically, we all know the world is a gray area.

Life sucks if you are a one or two dimensional character in your own story.
No one can see every side of a well-rounded person. While it's admirable to be yourself wherever you go, it's almost impossible to show the same side of yourself in the office as you do in, say, a mosh pit. Even Athena, Goddess of Wisdom, is a warrior and weaver. She doesn't necessarily use a spear at the loom.
Off topic: I just noticed how long Jack's fingernails were in the Shining. Look at those! He probably gouged himself every time he went to the bathroom. It's no wonder he went crazy.
In engineering, there is always a tradeoff. If I need more functionality in a device (like making a remote control work over RF rather than infrared), the product will cost more. If I want to make it cheaper, I can design the module myself rather than buying one, but it will take more time instead of money.
Speaking of engineering, it's been crunch time all week, so I'm going to cut this here so it can be submitted on Friday, which ends in the next five minutes.
