    posted a message on What's the most pathetic thing you've ever done?
    Quote from Kageon

    That was not a complicated social issue, Social and Complicated does not fit in a sentence.

    But as you wish:
    I have had to kill many,many,many animals, because of our loved 5 cats that show their love back by bringing half-dead animals on our door. Well it's not pathetic when you think its a "must to do" thing.
    And maybe this:
    I put some big rocks inside of a snowball when i was in the 8th grade, and threw it at one guys face and laughed. Ohh man it's making me laugh still :D

    Meh, i seem to have a "kind" way of life.

    That post disturbed me. Just asking for trouble there. Was the guy okay?
    Anyways, I have to say a large part of my primary school time. I would take rages, spazzes, tantrums, whatever, at my mum all the time, basically get super frustrated and angry over just the most insignificant things and taking it out on her. It might've been the the way the school's teaching worked that was causing it, since my little sister who's going to the same school now does the same, and it pretty much stopped for me when I moved up to the 'senior syndicate' (year 7/8).

    Coincidentally, I was just playing with some Bionicles I dug up recently :blink: . I would personally love to see it back again, bionicle was basically my first hobby, and I had so much fun with it.

    Quote from Crenox

    Some people say that's where the word "swag", orignated from. Maybe it's true, maybe it's not.

    I thought it originated from 'swagger', a word which Shakespeare invented apparently.

    Well, if we can keep making new versions of antibiotics to combat new evolutions I guess we should be fine. If that's not happening then I guess we're just digging our own graves.

    I personally think that swag is a magnificent word to convey a pretty common idea for teenagers. Well, that's just the mindset I have, because appreciating it is healthier than complaining about it, since that doesn't accomplish much anyway.

    posted a message on Win a girlfriend :3
    Welp, be nice, but not 'too nice' (that can land you in the friendzone). Just make sure she knows who you are and a little bit about you first, then buckle your pants and ask her out. Since this looks like the first time you're trying to get a girlfriend, just remember to be yourself around her, so if she does like you it's for you and not some 'act' you're putting on.

    Your point here


    Implies that the killing you talk about is not killing of animals, but the killing of other people, since you mention legality.

    And now your point hinges on the inevitability of War. Which I don't think is true either.

    I was talking about murder because of what people have been and are surrounded by. When killing was useful, we were often surrounded by animals we would have justification for killing, even if we were in groups. Nowadays we're surrounded by other humans, who we wouldn't have any valid reason to kill (except in some rare situations, for example if you were Hitler's friend or something). So basically the idea I was trying to express is that killing other creatures around us used to be essential, but isn't anymore, and is also illegal now. Of course an exception could've been made for indigenous tribal people in Africa, Papua New Guinea and so forth, I wasn't applying that idea to people who don't play video games.

    Also, my point doesn't hinge on war being inevitable at all, since I didn't say that. I said that killing is inevitable when 'normal' war (as in not like the Cold War) was already happening, because that's the whole idea of war, 'we kill people and/or destroy stuff so we get what we want'.
    My recent points were that you were mistaken regarding my previous ideas, though they were poorly expressed because I was tired, so I wouldn't blame you. Now I'm trying to explain them properly.

    I think asserting that we ever needed to kill each other ever is more stupid.

    You don't like conceding. I guess I'll play along.
    I didn't say anything about killing other humans, just killing generally. You were talking about murder, which is the unlawful killing of another human. Killing other humans couldn't have been necessary, but people may have to do it in certain cases like war. However, killing of non-humans/food sources can not be avoided, because we're omnivores and need meat from other animals. But I suppose by not saying killing animals specifically, you were able to use that against me, touché.

    Right now our discussion has flown completely off the rails of this thread but that does tend to be way of things.

    The second article is just random babbling with no basis, and the first one not only doesn't talk about any necessity of murder (just about aggression) but still doesn't actually have any sources.

    Right, okay. But I think you know what I'm trying to get at, because pursuing that particular example and denying that humans ever needed to kill is just not going anywhere.

    That's stupid. If you're going to make such an absurd claim, you're going to need some real evidence.

    Alright, okay. Just an idea I had, but I'll go fetch a link or something anyway.

    Of course my idea is by no means the only reason, if a reason at all, for trolling. It would also be people taking out their frustration for real life, so on, and so forth.

    What you're saying here is completely different from what you were saying before.

    Earlier you said we were 'migrating', in other words bringing in, our influences or base desires into the internet. Implying that, before us, it was somehow different. Somehow without those influences. Which is an absurd statement to make, since we create it in order to satisfy our desires.

    Not to mention your bit on how 'In the beginning' we needed murder and 'now' we don't.

    Yeah, bad word choice. And I didn't explain that last bit you pointed out very well either, the basic idea is that in like caveman times humans would've had some sort of desire on some level to kill because it meant that they could hunt and defend themselves, and enjoy doing it so that they would keep doing it, like other predators. We didn't have enough time to evolve out of that instinct, and because we have no need for it anymore because of farming, security, and our new position on the food chain as a whole thanks to technological progression, so that instinct pretty much became vestigial.

    What you're saying is absolutely absurd. Can you please base it on something more than pop culture? Like maybe something real?

    Why are you trying to assert that there's some sort of magical difference between how people act online and how they act 'IRL'? That's kind of a silly proposition to make, seeing as we made 'the net'.

    Okay, since killing isn't real, I'll use friendships as another example. Humans are, by nature, social creatures. We need to have social contact, which we can see when people in solitary confinement go bonkers. Of course a large portion of people, myself included, spend more net time in front of the computer than with real people, so the reason we aren't more insane is because we talk with, play with, and watch people on the internet, satisfying the need for social intercourse. (Just imagine, you're keeping me sane by just talking!)

    So the basis of my thought is that we have natural human desires, which we satisfy through the internet because in our modern world we have laws and personal morals which restrict certain desires, our self-inflicted way of life to restrict certain others, (and probably some more restrictions and desires).

    Also I apologize, I might've been a pain to understand because of my jumbled English, it's been a long day...
