I actually do enjoy my life, just the way it is. Ofcourse i don't know what love feels like, but i also wont commit suicide or murder someone if i don't recieve it, something i've witnessed personally. So yes, emotions indeed guide people, sometimes in the direction that is not considered in your fantasy world.
I find it hilarious though that you need so hard to convince yourself that you are better than me, and that i need your pity. I don't.
I am glad you enjoy life, everyone should.
In my view, your opinion on love is void as you have never experienced what you consistently dismiss.
I wouldn't commit suicide or murder anyone if I didn't feel loved.
I don't need to convince you of anything, I just find it so hard to actually believe that someone seemingly intelligent like you, is an emotional retard.
I don't care if you need my or anyone elses pity, I still pity you.
You're right emotions do misguide people occasionally, but their conscience will stop them from commiting any acts they would really regret. Well, It depends how strong you are... Or how weak.
By your logic, your opinions about lack of emotions is void since you have them? What kind of reasoning is that? :)
Your last paragraph made me laugh. You seem to live in some magical laa-laa land with rainbows and kittens. Every day people do crazy **** when they get emotional. Greed, lust, pride, jealousy and fear make people do acts that they never would do otherwise.
I don't get how you can't realise that at times, we temporarily are like you, It's not HORRIBLE but it's not something I would like to live like after experiencing emotions. So that's my opinion.
What? You live in a land WITHOUT kittens and rainbows? :)
People do do crazy things because they get emotional, people also do more crazier things because they don't have emotions. More than 25% of the incarcerated population are Psychopaths, sure there is the other 65%, but I would bet most of them are either narcissists, didn't consider the consequences, are idiots, or didn't realise that they hurt the people they hurt emotionally.
In my country, England, we have a system where people who commit burglary etc, come face to face with the victims and this makes the burgulars see sense - See how much they hurt their victims, and apologize.
Don't tell me for a second you don't experience, greed, lust or pride?! Thankg GOD he made me like he did!
i really lolled at this (although i only read the first few replies), thank you micheal22 for entertaining me, i loved the quick and subtle transitions from question asker, to preacher to raging moron, you actually acted like it was wolf who was somehow attacking you.
nice baiting technique though.
Hexi, Im sure if you could experience emotions for a short while, you would change your mind.
We haven't had a window tax since 1669 man.
We aren't medieval? What lead you to think that?
I don't know if you where serious about your "door knob" tax but I can say that has never existed in Great Britian.
We enslaved you for quite a long time? Feel good? :-)
Ever actually been to England? and what do you mean by "Dog Tax" where did you see that??
I think Michael just likes making you guys ******* or likes to think hes making you *******.
We don't have never had a Door Knob or Dog Tax.
Our Window tax was abolished in 1696, and it's the origin of the phrase "Daylight Robery". LOL
Says the country that re-elected George W Bush!
This is bloody pear-shaped!
Toby... You can't even drink after 11pm. Your pubs are closed. You pay 17.5% tax.
You pay at least $5 a gallon and drive on the wrong side of the road. You are a fallen empire. You live in the shadows of those who betrayed you. To the French no less. Now you obey your master nation. You tell yourselves lies. Convince yourself that you must help us. But we don't care at all about you.
I'm just tossing random crap. How much of it landed? Be honesty, Toby. You bloody Pikas child!
Most Pubs here are open ALL NIGHT.
We don't pay $5 a gallon, We pay £1 A LITRE! :-)
You drive on the wrong side!
Our NHS entitles us to completely FREE HEALTHCARE, no matter what, That's why in Britain, according the UN and your CIA, we live longer!
Seriously, where do you get your information!?
Honestly, I don't dislike America, Ive just allowed myself to be sucked in to your games, AH! :-)
Whitewolf - No emotions, No opinion. Jokin'. :P
Have you ever been to England, its GREAT.
It's pretty obvious his answer will be "no".
Well I can't really get to Europe without a stop over in that god abandoned, idol worshipping [the Queen], sewer of a nation... now can I?
17.5% tax... Thank God my ancestors had the mustard to go to the US and abandon that sickness. I imagine growing up in that singular cultured enviornment. How limited a view you must have. Ever lived in another nation? Say one that was not loyal to the crown?
I've been to your cloudy island with terrible weather and all around miserable enviornment. Don't even get me started on your god awful food. Goat nuggets?! Honestly, what the bloody hell?! Shepards pie is good but a pot pie is better. Conquering the world but your food still tastes like crap. You could learn a lot from the French.
So yeah.. I've been there. Maybe one day I can go back and meet you both and gave a nice cup of tea.
Do English men drink coffee?
I put out a few delicious scraps be bam... Toby is hooked on it.
You like that food?! It's British flavored... or flavoured crap. LOL
National pride is always fun to poke at. But really I see England as a little scrappy dog with a mean bite. In the grand scheme they aren't much but they bark at Europe enough to keep the US from exhiling itself during one of our national bloodlust rallys.
We know you all fear us. We're Americans. We're crazy! Our military is the difference between democracy and world chaos. ... This is boring.
I've used this crap too many times. It's just heart warning to see upset Brits.
What's wrong with out food?
You see us as a "littel scrappy dog"? Wanna throw us in a pool and run perhaps? LOL :-)
We don't fear you, you're our closest allies.
We regularly poke fun of you and vice versa, its fun to see Americans *******
Your military? The one that enters countries uninvitedly while claiming there are WMDs and later finds out theres none? You must be immensely proud of that mess. :)
I will stop now or I will start to ramble, get back to your lamb entrails and brains. LOL
You couldn't upset me lol. Try, your welcome to do your best to upset me, gimme your best shot!
I want you to try and make me furious! Come on! Enrage me! :-)
im DOESNT think that you should ARGUES about this because if does ARGUING then it POINTLESS because american dossent KNOWS enything about other countries so they cant SAYES enything true because they is has been not TEACHED about enything but theirs OWN country in SCHOOL so that why they be IGNORRANT. im is think that AMERICAN does be 13rd best country because they DOES haved good things but they have very many BAD THINGS too but im is thinking that maybe they can COMMED BETTER later when maybe someone GOOD and RELIGIOS take over PRESIDENT PLACE.
Lega's right, despite any intellectual ideas, people, or aspirations. Psychopaths will be psychopaths, and people that either do or don't understand them will insist that they do. Basically, just shut up.
Lega - Why do you type like that? With random words in capitals and stuff?
Do you always type like that?
Not being rude, just curious...
Its free on British TV. After 11PM.
Lega is a good spirited person from some other culture.
Here's a question. Why do I feel more alive when my reality is distorted?
I think about the void often now. Trying to figureout how I got rid of it. It creates isolating feelings. I believe it's because I finally defined my life.
And how did you define your life?
im DOSSENT understand your question REALLY because if you is GOOD in ENGLISH then you know how to make TEXT more effective by put EMPHASIS on IMPORTANT word. and im not OTHER culture im is from ENGLISH.
I speak English very well, "im DOSSENT understand" should be "I don't understand."
"If you is good english" should be "If you speak good English".
"im is from ENGLISH" - "I am from England".
Putting capitals on random words and adding s's to most words isn't good English.
The list goes on...
Welsh is the only explanation, honestly.
Yeah, But he says hes English...
But it's nothing like English
Oh, right. :)
I wonder if he's just meesin' with us..?
And you speak good English for a Finnish..
While I can read your English I doubt I'd understand your blathering in person. Even when I watched Snatch I had to put on subtitles. Don't even get me started on how dull and uninteresting English people and their movies are either.
No matter how badass a person looks... if they open their mouth and sound English I just die laughing. The English are the most nonthreatening people I've ever met. Well in my head. I'm sure there are tough British people. But you have to admit they sound stupid. I take homosexuals more serious.
We created English, You corrupted it.
Our movies are boring? Have a look at the box office. We occupy 6, 7 ,8 ,9. You have number 1, but I think American films are great.
Non-Threatening? Mate, you oughta go to Manchester, Tell them about your views on Britain and have your face ****ed up.
I don't think we sound stupid, We created the language you are speaking, and even then you managed to **** that up.
I cant help but laugh at our interactions, one of us says something insulting, the other frantically tries to defend themselves...
Us 3 have not only scared the other forumers away, we've ruined this forum... :-)
We've hugely strayed away from the subject of psychology... LOL
Fun though, for me.
Interesting and fun for us, not for anyone else. But I don't care. Its fun throwing insults... :-)
You also make me laugh, so I will forgive you for being burger eating invasion monkeys.
It's mainly us two driving people away with our arguing. LOL
You guys should check the statistics of the winter war that Finland fought against Soviets, if you want to be afraid of a nation. :P
I remember hearing about that when I was younger, Finland lost about 25,000 troops and the USSR lost 120,000 or something thereabout.
You whooped there communist asses!
Their lossses were much, much worse. They lost 126k killed or missing, 188k wounded or burned, 3.5k tanks, 261-515 aircrafts and 5.5k captured. We lost 25k, 43k wounded, 20-30 tanks and 62 aircraft. The numbers just make me laugh, to be honest.
I laughed too actually, the largest army at the time were ****ed up. :-)
I didn't know you wouldn't fight. I thought you would say loads of crap to me about how I am a coward, and that crap, but you didn't. :D
We managed to kill more Germans than they killed British. :)
We didn't run away! When the Germans attacked us with their cowardly "Blitzkrieg" we defended against them while America refused to participate.
I suppose I have to be thankfull they stayed in there country and increased the prices of there inferior style weaponry while our troops fought on the front line.
Everyone thinks you saved us, but people are often ignorant of the fact the Germans had surrendered before you dropped your bombs on Japan. Germany had given up, just not Japan.
They got what was coming to them after flying planes into pearl harbour.
Boooooooooom! - LOL
We're the only three forumers left, I guess we're thr strongest, most intelligent ones. :-) Well, not you. LOL Joking.
Well... If the smiley yellow face says so....
nope nobody did GOTTED what them DESERVED. and FINLAND did gotted that good in WAR only because the CAESAR in SOVIET UNION did ordered troops not takes one step away to RETREATED so they coulded TRAPS them because they couldent RETREATED. and CAESAR stalin did killed most TACTICORS and HIGH OFFICERS so not could make PROPER COMAND.
im IS THINKING you shouldent also say that we be better then you because we did killed more people moer EFFICIENT because that be dumb. and also you DIDENT haded anything to do with that. im is THINKING you should stop anger and INSULTS so people can enjoys forum and you oculd be HAPPIER too.
The people fighting for the soviet union didn't get what they deserve, they were normal people. Kill or be killed.
But the USSR got what they deserved as a country, and if you think they didn't, then your wrong.
But your right that arguing and insulting each other gets no one anywhere, but without it where's the fun? :-)
War and violence is wrong, Fullstop.
How would you act if your country was invaded?
I'm not saying that someone though to be an idiot has to die? Where did you get that from?
What do you like so much about the Soviet Union? The beheadings, hanging and stonings of innocent people? Or perhaps the Communism?
And I'm sorry but I really can't understand what you're saying. Are you calling me stone? or saying war is like a stone? or I should fight a stone?
Why do you talk (type) like that if you're British.
I thought you would just like to disagree with what I was saying. So I assume you would say that you where a communist.
Indeed. By the way, what is a "lurker"?
Believe me I'm fighting the temptation to say "you".
It's someone who reads message boards and forums but doesn't actually write anything or join in/participate.
Alright, I admit. I was monitoring the discussion, however, it is because my opinion on the subject had already been expressed, and I'm not going to re-state it and add to the trite attempts at intellect(that goes for all humans, not just the people here). It's just odd to me that I was label stamped because I know when not to flap my lips(fingers). And Wolf, I've looked up slang on www.dictionary.com before, and what I learned was apparently WAY off from the proper(or improper) usage of that word. I was new to the internet at that time, and being as obsessive as I am, I ended up making my own "Web Slang Dictionary". Brimming with confidence and drive I plunged into conversation. Word after unknown word crossed my eyes as I frantically flipped through my homemade guide. As a result, I became "The Catalyst", unintentionally and inevitably leaping into the cross-hairs of moderators.
I'm saying that if someone is reluctant to say something in a fist-ranged debate that may get their enemy angry, then it was very unlikely that what they had to say was an actual counter-point containing logic and not an insult.
Whitewolf - Look what they put your email as....
It's obviously an idiot with nothing better to do. They must really have a pathetic life if they have to pretend to be someone else on a forum for fun.
Sad, sad person.
Also there is a post for you from some MyTherapy person.
Dr Long MD.....
