Reminds me of General Patton:
"I want you to remember that no bastard ever won a war by dying for his country. He won it by making the other poor, dumb bastard die for his country."

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

Some people truly are so empty and disconnected that they'd fail to act as normal people might act in certain situations. That's not a bad thing, of course, but it does occur. Not everyone will step up to the "ultimate nobility" if given the opportunity.

"...you (probably) know yourself better than I do..."

Of course I do. I met me when I was 19 and we've been joined at the hip ever since (that's funnier than you think it is). How could there possibly be even a hint of a doubt that I know myself better than you do? Are you fucking serious?

Lastly, why should I not be sincere about this? In the past, on the rare occasions when I've expressed my hidden sentiments, I've been told that I'm not serious, or that I'm fooling myself, or (most infuriating) that I'm "trying to be cool". This is a forum in which many of us are able to express our inner-most feelings and ideals in relative anonymity. For some, it's the only place we feel "safe" enough to do so (be it in the emotional, or the tactical sense of the word). Why, might I ask, would I be insincere about sentiments which may very-well alienate others? Who likes a misanthropic psychopath? Unless he's a character on TV; not many people. If there were to be any insincerity, one would think it would be positive. That's what tends to keep things running smoothly between people. So, if I were to be insincere about the things I've been saying thus far, it begs the question: what would be the purpose?

You can hope all you want, bud. This is me. Personally, I'm not sure why it's an issue. I've never had much trouble with it...

Anyway, yes, I'm quite content. If that's what it takes for you to sleep well tonight, then, there it is.
Big Grin I wasn't serious. Maybe I should use more winky-face emoticons? Anyway, yeah I do sincerely hope you are wrong, but I would not seriously suggest that I, a nearly perfect stranger, would know you better than yourself. Maybe we should hug, or high-five, or have a three way with a hooker or something? Maybe all three...Anyway, I'm not losing any sleep over it. Smoke a joint a take a nap.

Also, quit trying to act so cool, you're not Wink Notice the winky face?

I think you are wrong. Given a set of circumstances, I believe you would sacrifice yourself, even if you can't imagine yourself doing it. Of course no one knows for certain unless the decision must be made.

lol. Whatever you say, bud. Wink

Really, my eventual suicide should actually *further* put things into perspective. It implies that I'm ok with skipping out instead of sticking around to make an impact - be it positive or negative. So, with that being the case, it should make even MORE sense that I'd be unlikely to sacrifice myself for any cause or group.

But, like I said: whatever you say. Thumbsup


So what age do you think is old enough to exit? And how old are you now?

I don't really have an age in mind. I simply know that I will not put myself through the demoralizing ordeal of memory-loss, muscular atrophy, bowel-voiding, sensory impairment and the god-awful turkey-neck which will TOTALLY ruin my tattoo scheme. I respect myself far too much for that.

If you consider my name; it's safe to say that whenever I decide I've had enough of this place is when I'll quietly take my leave. In the meantime, however, there are quite a few things I wish to do. So, I'm not worried about it.

Bah, Chas at least has admittedly been there too. Tongue Not a gun for me, but I like having an Exit Bag full of nitrogen at the ready and staring at it and contemplating the abyss when I feel the need. No muss, no fuss, no mess, no pain, won't even notice, undetectable in an autopsy. Just gotta get somebody to agree to throw away the bag and the canister. And I don't even gotta worry 'bout that 'cause there's no suicide exclusion clause in my $930K life insurance policy. Fucking staring at that Go Bag when I need to has kept me alive for a long time now. Not only can I check out anytime the fuck I like, I can fucking leave. And that is what keeps me here. That Go Bag is my Gwynnies. Big Grin

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

I can relate to this.

I have always been of the same attitude. I decided in my twenties that I would drink myself into oblivion by the time I was thirty.

I may have managed it. How would I know?

That age of oblivion was always roughly 15-20 years ahead. Now, however, the symptoms you state are beginning to show, particularly the muscular atrophy and the memory...

...forgotten what I was talking about.
