Oh , wait, it did happen last Thursday, it's the reason I almost got admitted to the hospital and why I haven't gone to work all week... Wonderful! I am better now, thanks Rocephin !!!

    Uh, sorry to disappoint, I actually misread that part of the post. I don't have a girlfriend.

    It's simply complicated. I can't be bothered to explain it. Therefore, you can think whatever you want. Meaning, whatever helps you sleep at night.

    Forget it. What do turtles know about sophisticated humor anyways. :P

    Calling me "dear" at any point in time is a severe and disastrous mistake. So I suggest you take that BACK.

    Besides YOUR idea of "developed humor" is something one would understand only if he/she had a perverted puberty....which I'm starting to think you had, by the way.

    :wink:

    I won't take it back. It fits.

    :wink:
    MY idea of developed humor is a sense of humor that has been refined over a period of time that doesn't depend on toilet humor, nor any other form of immature humor such as ad hominem attacks and references to sex... See the above comment made by you for an example of what I feel is NOT refined sense of humor

    Gosh, Marnix, you really figured me out! I was trying to keep my deep love and adoration for Arcane a secret, but what can I say? I've been outed. But please, don't tell him I said this ok? Otherwise the love of my life will start to avoid me...and I will be forced to commit hara-kiri as I whisper his name with my dying breath...

    You see... Now that's just hurtful. That fish is CLEARLY more recently deceased than marnix... I think there's some nepotistic tendencies to like life here... Tsk Tsk Tsk, Tritai, you have to love everyone equally, no matter how long they were dead for :wink:

    And more than half of those "22-ways to kill a man with your bare hands" are circumstantial or just out right wrong. Namely, Your solar plexus is right beneath your ribs, not in the small of you back, and no human on the planet can, with the force of only their hands, cause enough damage to the abdomen to cause organ rupture or nervous system damage on the order necessary to kill a person in ONE hit... I call BS on your article. That was a funny read though, and half of those "techniques" HAVE been implemented on me, mostly by inanimate objects and of my own doing, but the forces and impacts are still relevant. Sorry, I'm a tougher man than that. Hee Hee Hee

    Oh, and next time, try cross referencing some of the information in your source to make sure it's not garbage, dear tritai. :P

    ROFL. It's all right. I nauseated myself too. I think I was drunk with, um, well....something or the other, because I was NOT in my right mind at the time. Forgive me.

    I had to look up reefer before i knew what you were talking about, so now I'm worried you might be a drug-dealer too. :wink:

    My worst fear is that our planet slips into another religion-inspired Dark Age.
    And let me tell you, in this modern age, when religion should be dying a fast and certain death it seems it is getting stronger and stronger.

    My worst fear is that individuals will attain complacency through the panderage of self-selected media. For example I fear people getting just what we want from the internet. It's a feedback problem.

    This is a primal fear, as the paradox of feedback threatens all organisms.

    When you put it that way, i cant help but see your slightly scary point. Do you think religion will someday be...outdated? Archaic? Or will it always remain a foothold for billions of people and be the sole consolation for millions throughout their lives?

    I'm only afraid when my enemies are happy. That means somewhere along the way, I royally screwed up.

    There are a lot of stupid people out there - look at jehovah's witnesses: 7 million people worldwide believe in a religion that was sold to them on their doorstep.

    As long as there are gullible morons, religion will survive.

    I'm more careful. My enemies are only happy just before they walk into a carefully conceled trap I laid.

    As the enjoyment of interaction with the anaconda becomes deeper and depper and I fall into a trance state of mind, little do I notice (because i'm in a trance) that the giant's anus is directly ponited at my face and whalla a massive overodose of shit (digested rats, rabbits, pigs, etc) is splateered upon me face, I fear that this may happen someday. I also fear that this may happen with giannt lizards, giant tarantulas and yes even my own dog.......oh no wait!!! that dog stuff is somewhat disturbing JK!!! LOL

    what's really scary is the thought that the religions must fight, because while so many are around, one cannot be perceived as the penultimate. War is inevitable as long as religion inspires power, and that war will be bloody. Religion in and of itself will never die, per Drowsy's point, but the power may be diminished. Granted a lack of power, I firmly believe that religion will NEVER again inspire a dark age. That is, at least, my bit of optimism on the subject.

    Maybe religion does not have power over modern society to inspire a dark age, but some might say that persent day Islam extermenism can be considered as a religion or movement that puts the world back into dark ages, in my opinion.

    I read a really good book a few weeks ago called Hyperion. Written as a series of interconnected short stories, the first story was of a anthropologist investigating a tribe of mentally and physically retarded individuals living in an isolated area. After some exploration he discovers that this tribe is continuously reincarnate by a cross shaped parasite that is grafted onto their chests. This parasite renders its host immortal, but after each reincarnation the host becomes mentally more deficient. The anthropologist is horrified by the perverted form immortality.

    I was reminded of the stagnancy of the Roman Empire. While the Romans were able to conquer all the lands surrounding the Mediterranean their civilization became more and more stagnant as technological and intellectual development and progress came to a screeching halt. Great numbers of slaves, because of their cheapness, worked in massive agricultural estates and mining complexes, which helped to stop technological progress while the ancient glories of Greco-Roman civilization were merely retaught and honored, but not expanded upon.

    I guess the point of the short story and my little paragraph is the how frightening a stagnant eternity can be.

    Stagnation can be defined as a force of reverse development instead of forward development, cuz logically speaking as time moves forward we are supposed to develop forward as well, but when stangnant (or none or barely moving) which can cause decay it is a backward force therfore reversed in develomential status. If this was to happen for many years and even worse eternity then some one is in some deep S**T But stagantion can be avoided by the correct understanding of society in development theories, this might be 1 of the great assests we can use in modern society in order to advance poperly as meant. The study of develompent theories virtually covers all aspects of society, education, government/politics, business, community etc. with the right application of this theory to all aspects a glorious progression will be achieved.

    I fear greatly that religion can indeed shove us careening into another dark age: Look at how very greatly it interferes with the most powerful nation on Earth! USA is supposed to be secular, and you get TWO terms of a president that shoves science into the crapper!

    We allow so many mid-easterners into our countries here in the west; what happens when they outnumber you? Can they not change laws with a majority vote then??? How can your country stay secular when they can change those laws?

    Yes indeed we can slip into another Dark Age! Don't doubt it!

    Sound's like an advert for neo-facism to me...

    Actually if you guys wish, I would gladly debate whether Christianity is responsible for the Dark Ages after the fall of the Western Roman Empire in the history subforum. Tis a very interesting topic.

    Majority knowledge accepts and preaches that the US govenrment is indedd the most powerfull nation on earth. But behind a veil tha really does exist the power behinds the US gov is the Federal Reserve bank (which is copletely privately owned) that has ALL power to control the money supply of the nation, as we know who ever controls money rules the world. Even as kings on thrones with crown and scepters do not mean anything if they do not control the money. And the ones who own these banks in America are private families not Washington

    Back to worst fears....

    How about sitting through a powerpoint created by William McCormick? That's a prety terrifying prospect.

    Didn't William get wiped off the face of the earth? Now there's this VinDino11 guy taking up valuable space......

    Another fear of mine: not being considered smart. I know, I know, you guys are wondering, "Sheesh, how does she get through doorways with that ego of hers?" Well, I just want to clarify that all my life, my parents (and the rest of India for that matter) have pushed me to try to be intelligent just like the rest of my fellow brown people. So now I have this horrible thought that maybe I'll end up flipping burgers and become a disgrace to my people and my family. Ick. That is SO not appealing. :?

    Really? I'd kill to be considered average. My life has been a constant struggle to fit in.

    Fitting in isn't as great as it's cracked up to be, Turtle. You don't see many average people coming up with breakthroughs in our world unless they combine all their brainpower, now do you? Being average sounds so bland to me...why would you want to be just like the person standing next to you? Isn't life all about competition and advancement?

    Also, I have this sadness (no, it's not a fear, I'm glad we got that sorted out), but it's just been rotting away in my (gulp) heart: The fact that for all that my parents try and try to shape me into a good and intelligent girl, trying to make the best out of me, it's almost certain that they'll never see me reach MY peak of my career/life. They will never really see me succeed, or live my life just as happily as they did at that age....after all that they'd have taught me, the only thing I'd have left of them by that point is memories of them.

    This is making me teary-eyed.

    I hate death.

    You don't understand.... I don't want to be normal, just to be able to pass as normal, for instance in social circumstances. Suffice to say, the comic in my signature isn't just a joke, and I put it on for a reason.

    Er, no, not really, Turtle....I'm kind of considered the brutally sarcastic smart girl, and believe it or not, that hasn't done wonders for my: a) having excessively "popular" friends, b) meeting a cute guy who can think and simultaneously breathe at the same time, and c) being considered "normal".

    Now excuse me while I attempt to save myself from dying of hysteria over choice "b".

    tritai , you appear to be young.
    Listen. Speaking as a Karate teacher:
    Live your life on your terms, not someone else's.

    You do appear to be an intelligent girl, and that is far more attractive to people -that matter- than being a hotty. If you're both, then that's nice, but the far more valuable thing is to be intelligent. You can find a guy like that, too, it just takes patience and insight. But you shouldn't define your life over finding the right guy. It's only a facet of your life.
    You will not wind up flipping burgers (well maybe for a summer or two depending on your age) so long as you make intelligent choices.


    turtle: I never fit in. I never did, and I never really gave a shit about even appearing to fit in. Once again, I would give the advice of living your life on YOUR terms, not what others think.
    I found a livelihood where I can support myself without having to answer to others, at least insofar as I don't have to act the corporate salaryman.
    I fit in perfectly well with my own self. To hell with everyone else.
    Do you think this *might* be a good path for you, too?
    Your life; your choice.

    sorry...
    I think you might have gotten the wrong idea about what I said. My parents are currently alive and well. It's the future I'm talking about, when I grow up and become wise, but they won't really be there to see it.

    My parents are not dead.

    Yay. Lucky me.
    Really, dear Turtle, could you show a little restraint with that bubbling enthusiasm? I'm not sure my heart can take much more of that kind of response! :P

    tritai , you appear to be young.

    Sensei, that was quite profound, and I really hope you don't think I'm a simpleton and an airhead for caring about the guy thing, because I really don't (I'm only in ninth grade), and I have more important things in my life to think about right now. I kind of put it in there as a joke. However, what you said makes sense, and you can be rest assured that I do not treat myself or let others treat me as a doormat to walk all over for anything. And as for what you siad to Turtle: right on. To hell with everyone else.....individuals rock.

    :-D

    Note on not fitting in- you're probably in good company here (If that works. Hmm...)

    Don't know about anyone else, but I'm still in school, and joining a science forum is the very definition of not fitting in

    I loathe (note the usage of the word "loathe" not "fear") hugs. Except from my mom or dad, only then is it ever tolerable. Otherwise.....*shudder*.

    Me too. They don't seem to understand that I don't like random people's arms around me. Kissing disgusts me too. For all you teens and kids out there that want to take pride in your snog sessions, here's your calling:

    Kids'
    International
    Spit - slash -
    Saliva
    Exchange
    Society

    If you want to join KISSES today, come talk to me! You keep expectorating into each others' mouths! How else can you keep the libido alive, eh?

    Tritai's responses are always the first derogatory or demeaning sentance pulled off the top of her head. She even started a thread so she could learn more insults and one-liners, isn't that right, m'dear? 8)

    Ok, so I think that when people say that "Ooooh, I wanna be all amazing and unique, so I'm gonna be an isolated individual and brood in a corner," they don't realize that they're joining a group of people who want to stay AWAY from groups and become individuals. You want to be isolated, but in reality, you're just a joining a new group of people who ALL want to be isolated. If this makes no sense, blame Turtle for ruining my concentration. I will explain that in a moment.

    Tritai's responses are always the first derogatory or demeaning sentance pulled off the top of her head. She even started a thread so she could learn more insults and one-liners, isn't that right, m'dear?
    They're not ALWAYS like that, you two-faced son of a snapping turtle. I've been nice before...(oh, haha, don't even attempt to mask that cough of disbelief, I can hear it all the way over here. ) And AGAIN with the "dear" thing! Listen, all of you people are sweet and good and smart, but when it comes to "Stop" I dont think you get the hint. It makes me feel weird whenever someone calls me "dear", because I know it's such a lie. Gosh. Is it that hard to understand???? The next person who wants to call me "dear" can take his head and shove it up his arse. And I mean it too.

    My biggest fear is 20.12.2012 It is in my thoughts most days.

    You must have probably heard about the “December 21, 2012 - Doomsday” the day when the world is prophesied to come to an end. In fact, you will find it amusing that this December 21, 2012 - End Of The World prophecy has been backed up by so many religions, calendars, and prophecies. So, is this another theory of Apocalypse that will come and go like the ones we have been seeing or is it the one that we should pay attention to? After digging for several hours through the Internet in this matter, I came up with the following worthy information regarding “The End Of The World.

    Mayan Calendar: The ancient Mayan calendar states that the world will end in December 21, 2012. The Mayan civilization flourished in Central America from the 6 A.D. to 9 A.D. They were obsessed with time-keeping, and in fact, their calender were so incredibly precise that its interlocking time scales of lunar, solar, and planetary cycles could accurately predict solar/lunar eclipses thousands of years into the future. This accurate calendar however mysteriously ends on December 21, 2012!

    It states that on December 21, 2012, the sun rises on the dark rift of the centre of the milky way which is referred to as a black hole. In the last five years, the western astronomers have in fact discovered that there is in fact an enormous black hole at the centre of our milky way galaxy. The contemporary astronomers concur with the Mayans. On 21st of December, 2012, the Earth will be in exact alignment with the Sun and the centre of our milky way galaxy, a galactic event which takes place only once every 25,800 years! No one knows what effect this extraordinary alignment will have on our planet, but the Mayans believe it would be terrible!
    We are shocked and appalled to hear that the number of animals condemned to lives of suffering in EU laboratories has hit a ten year high.

    If that's your worst fear, then you live a pretty sheltered life. It's like being afraid that you'll get speared by a unicorn horn.

    First, claims of "end of the world" ... every single one of them so far... has been wrong.
    Second, it's like arguing that the world will end after December because that's when the calendar ends.
    Third, the planets are ALWAYS aligned from somewhere... It's just a matter of perspective. There is no significance to them appearing to line up from earth, it's just that humans are easily fascinated and confused, and this is an example of the "shiny object" phenomenon.

    All that said, if your biggest fear in life is this crap, then you're pretty well-off and living a sheltered life.

    ummmm... Yeah... That happens EVERY YEAR. ALL of the planets in the solar system will be aligned in MAY of 2012, something that occurs every 25,800 years, forming, essentially, a massive Syzygy throughout the solar system, which is pretty freaking awesome if you ask me.

    The mayan calender had to end some time, and they happened to have a dark view of the sky and liked to watch the stars. Perhaps they noticed there was a cycle? and it is the end of the cycle, not the world... Please, get educated on the topic before turning it into a fear...

    My worst fear is a slow painful death in a ditch off the side of the road... something that is becoming increasingly likely in my life...

    Sounds like you've discovered my game of playing chicken with traffic at night. I've had a few close calls that way!

    Yeah, but that number actually under represents the true value since so many of those schizophrenics also suffer from multiple personality disorder. It's actually much closer to 75 if you count each dissociative identity.

    What about those who have self-importance complexes and therefore count as 50 people in statistics?

    Or it is not the world that comes to an end but only those in the Americas. The age of Africa is coming! 8)

    I have a fear of cold water, like if I went out on a boat and someone made me jump in the lake I could never do it lol, or being stripped naked and having to stand in a freezer for long periods of time.

    I just hate the cold

    REPLY: What about growing old and dieing ? This is something that happens to all of us eventually. As time goes by whatever beauty, strength, mental abilities, good eyesight and hearing fade away as time goes by. This frightens me a lot. Also, that I may suffer some horrendous injury for any of all the reasons these sorts of things happen to many people. What about getting your dick shot off or your spinal cord severed leaving you a miserable cripple for the rest of your life.
    I have seen such things happen to people. I hope for a nice CLEAN[ I will die and very soon ] chest wound or head shot to be my way of going. Or perhaps getting euthanized like is done with hopelessly ill pets.[ and a bit ironically, condemned prisoners in many States ]. We all have to face our end some day. And I do wish to add that there were times in my life when I was so miserable I did not have much fear of dieing. At least one other poster discussed this point. When you don`t have much to live for there is much less or at times, at least seemingly, NO FEAR of dieing.
    At the present time due to an unexpected joy filled new reality in my life, I treasure being alive as perhaps never before. I used to feel: screw it all, I`ll die when I die and do not treasure being alive. Now I do care about staying alive, at least for now. I fear the COSMIC JOKER [ GOD ] is setting me up for a few last laughs at my expense. Now that he has me really wanting to live, NOW is the time to have me die. Some nasty situation may be in the works for this last laugh on me. It`s just some paranoid delusion of mine, I HOPE. Well, I do appreciate the joy that has entered my life. I did gain entrance into to some new and wonderful existence, at least for now. ...Dr.Syntax .....POST SCRIPT: MY SLEEPING BEAUTY awakens and DUTY calls. ...DS

    Fears:

    Fear of responsibility. Responsibility means blame.

    Fear of Larvae as someone else mentioned. Seriously is there anything more disturbing, grose or straight out disgusting than larvae? If there was a 1% chanse there could be a larvae in my room, and i could remove that 1% by eating my own shit id eat it screaming with happiness. Hell id have tubgirl over for dinner rather than a larvae.

    Fear of heights. The knowledge that you will die before you will die falling, the feel of gravity... must be horrendous.

    Fear that im a sociopath or have aspergers. I have some mildly autistic signs and i have a complete lack of empathy. When i say complete lack i mean like... i can see a livestream of a tsunami killing hundreds and laugh about it eating popcorn. The laughing part would be only the sick wish of provoking people to a reaction through attention, cause i wouldnt really feel happy about it either... just ... nothing...

    Fear of time. When i was younger i thought i had all the time in the world. Then suddently im now 25. It feels like the time between was instantanious, and im scared to death that when im 80 years old it wouldve felt like a heartbeat away.

    Things many fears but i dont:

    Fear of death. I dont fear death because i think the universe is cyclic.

    Fear of snakes. I cant understand it, they are beautifull magnificent creatures.
