  1. Mother Nature definitely seems to favour evil. I don't know if God exists or not, but we all know for sure that Mother Nature exists, and nature likes to create monsters. Our flimsy, poorly-developed sense of morality says that we should lock up all the monsters, but that's not what nature wants. I'm always reminded of this whenever I watch a good nature documentary, and I'm always reminded in the most sobering way that practically everything out there is trying to hurt you or ki*l you. Without question, my whole life, it's always been the most sociopathic people that obtain the happiest lives. Every now and then a nice person will make it in life, but it only ever looks like a fluke. Someone who has somehow managed to infiltrate Mother Nature's brutal barricades which only permit entry to the cruel, the soulless, and the vilest. I think you also need to take into account that people actually quite like evil. I've always observed that humanity's relationship with evil is entirely hypocritical, which is to say, nobody has a problem dishing it out, evil only becomes a problem for people when they're on the receiving end. Then it becomes an "outrage".
  2. Amazon vouchers. (They're more secure than using credit cards)
  3. People who ask "are you calling me a liar?"
  4. What bugs me and also humours me is the governments attitude towards gambling. On the one hand they encourage it as it helps the struggling economy and on the other they discourage it to give the appearance of being a responsible and concerned leadership. A text book case of wanting to have their cake and eat it.
  5. The celebrities I'm into are more low key types, of which about half you probably wouldn't have heard of. I have some interest in meeting the celebs that I'm into and getting their autographs, but the bigger celebrities out there like Taylor Swift, Dwayne Johnson and Will Smith I couldn't give a rats arse about. Complete indifference.
  6. According to the results, I'm the only only child here. It's never really been some kind of issue. I've never understood the stigma attached to only child's.
  7. I recognise a lot of this. I certainly agree that there are fake apologies which are used to placate the victim rather than a genuine plea for forgiveness. And I've noticed when it comes to forgiveness, more often than not, there's an entitlement to it. Most people don't ask for it, they demand it.
  8. When shops don't sufficiently refrigerate their soft drinks, so you either have to buy a warm one or nothing.
  9. Co-workers who insist I sign their birthday cards when nobody even remembers my birthday.
  10. I hate it when I have to resort to scissors. Makes the laughter in my head become very loud.
  11. A lot of people seem to think the film (Clockwork Orange) was random and gratuitous. I think the film was addressing the anxieties and fears about how violent real world society was becoming at the time. Capitalising on those fears and anxieties, you might say.
  12. Hi Rattler, It sounds like I suffer with the same thing you described. Anger is so powerful and it's designed to shut down higher brain function like communication, listening and reasoning. It's such a primal emotion that has no place in 21st century society with all of its laws, rules, regulations and procedures. It's always unwelcome, whatever the situation.Not much helps it. Like you said, focus on breathing and leave the room if you're able. Have you tried keeping a journal?
  13. Eye contact is very overrated. I don't have a very positive history with it. I'm okay with eye contact now, but there was a time when I found it to be too intense and would prefer to avoid it. Sometimes eye contact is interpreted as aggression, usually with insecure reactionary types. I don't know about any body else, but I find I can listen to another person talking just as well if not better while not looking at them. When my depression was its worst, I would chronically avoid eye contact as I always thought the person I was talking to would 'discover' that I was depressed just through my eyes.
