    Seriously though, I never get that bad. Unless numerous things come together and build up on me. But no one event makes me that way.

    I think I'd smash a wifebeater's face in if I saw him at it, or a molester or such. Usually though I'll just swallow hard and listen to some loud rock music later on.

    If I miss an exit on a highway, or miss a turn I will scream at the top of my lungs and curse God himself. That is one example of when I lash out

    Its a natural human emotion to feel when one feels threthened or hard done by .

    Their are many ways of dealing with anger such as cooling down , counting to ten etc


    But venting it does not work .

    What causes lashing out, on a very fundamental level, is when your emotions override your logic. The right brain fires more than the left. You're overcome with emotion and there's no controlling it. The energy inside of you becomes like that of a lightning bolt: It has to strike something.

    The only way to avoid this is to never allow your emotions to gain that much power. Lightning damages whatever it hits, so it is best to become grounded.

    that reminds me of the time i had been beavering away on a spreadsheet for the best part of an afternoon, when it was all wiped out by a power spike (needless to say i'd forgotten to save anything)

    I'm not sure anything can "cause" me to "lash out". I can not blame someone or something else for my actions. What do i find provocative- what irritates me that results in such behaviour or thoughts of doing so? hmm People who can't follow a simple conversation, and also my own stupidity. The two probably go hand in hand. If something about you irritates me, maybe it reminds me of a similar shortcoming in myself (or I'm being a jerk simply have no sense of tolerance for others at that moment).

    Mmmm that makes perfect bladdy sense to me.

    If I find somebody annoying or acting stupid I then ask myself if i can or have been annoying to others or been stupid in the same way? The answer is quite often yes.

    That usually stops me lashing out and instead i will slowly shuffle away shame faced and silent lol

    Too make me lash out i find that i really, and i mean REALLY, hate it when i am wrongly accused of something. It is incredibly annoying because no matter how hard you try to make them understand it wasn't you, they just think you are lying. Life can be so hard i nearly hit a teacher my mum wouldn't be impressed.
    Love is not and item, you cannot buy it. How about loving me and maybe you can get some back?! - To my Ex , lol

    Most annoying??

    People who really believe in things that don't exist, here's my list of top 5


    At Number '5' Politicians

    At Number '4' Telekinesis

    At Number '3' people who think that negative exists in nature.

    At Number '2' The bigfoot crowd.

    And to top the list "Hawking radiation" ( and if you are out there Stephen, congratulations on reaching 67 back in Jnuary - well done mate!

    I hear you loud and clear. I accused a friend of something not too long ago, found out I was wrong, and fealt like shit. I've been accused before too of a lot of things. It is very lame. Makes me want to never accuse anyone of anything no matter what ever again... but circumstances ultimately decide

    Labeling people this or that because of past mistakes is the worst!
    Should be outlawed!!

    Everything living is constantly in a flux of change, and that's nowhere more true than in people. People are capable of changing in a split second!

    To say that someone is an ass and will forever be an ass because of previous assiness is totally ass-full!

    People do eventually learn from their mistakes (granted some take more time about it than others) and everyone deserves endless chances to become somebody better.

    Whenever I leave my pals, I wipe the slate clean, and look forward to seeing them and having the pleasure getting to know them all over again

    If someone does something bad to me, I tell them what a fucking ass they've been, tell them I hope they won't be an ass again and then I instantly forgive them.

    The phrase 'Leopards don't change their spots' should be applicable to Leopards only and NOT people.

    Some things don't change, that is what makes it hard to forget the things that might.

    It seems a better bet, either way, to be wrong in giving the benefit of the doubt, than being wrong in false-judgment.

    The problem is when you think you know, when it fact you do not... when the circumstances and all the evidence leads you to false conclusions

    life's a logic trap :?
