I enjoy the fact and sometimes proud that im not part of the bandwagon.

If i see a thread with a Offender and Victim, i usually pick the side that is not being defended enough... just for the sake of it.

I just love to argue.

If i see a bandwagon, im the truck that is on a head-on collision.

I suppose it does occur. But maybe it's also a simple ploy used by S & T's in some of the more emotive threads, designed to turn a decent thread into chaos and closure, especially if something 'new' comes up that others could latch on to and pursue further.

I tend to get the opposite. I've had a few posters let loose on me on threads as if I'm somehow their arch enemy, which is funny because it always catches me a little off guard.

I'm going to go ahead and call you a liar right now. I've seen you on the recent AGW threads. You're full of it.

I rest my case, lol.
Thanks, Goteborg, I'm truly flattered.

I'm kind of the same way. If I see an alternate possibility that is being overlooked, I bring it up. It's not so much arguing for the sake of arguing in my book. It's more of making sure that all bases are covered because a lot of times, most threads turn into what appears to be a tennis match.

I don't have many of those problems, mine are more like me myself and I.
I obtained some 'stealth upgrades' awhile back to keep an edge in this new battlefield.
I'm off your radars unless you are looking for swans or flamingos.

There are 2 or 3 nice people I do u2u now and then that are friendly,
(you would be amazed how empty my u2u box has been over 10yrs until last week).
My new friend is really nice. I appreciate that person very much.
I make mistakes everyday like everyone else, can't spell very well etc, etc.

I haven't got an applause for any threads I wrote in almost a year (don't care really but noticed), I did get one for a one liner I wrote in another thread a few months back, and for a 3yr old thread recently (?). I don't have any 'butt kissers' that I am aware of to prop my ego exactly. I actually have to pick myself up off the floor everyday although recently I have gotten a few hands of true daring and grace at important moments which I am very thankful for. They know who they are and know I'm forever grateful.
Beside the point though...

In a way the struggle itself, although painful, has rebuilt my ego into something much more reasonable. So I am kinda glad I'm "standing on my own here", fake praise misleads.

I realize none of you really like me that much hahah.
I challenge everything we believe for sport. Why? Because I can and will.
Because it's easy and needs to be done by someone.

Because I can't stand anyone of us anymore and want to rip us all apart down to the heart of what matters.
I know something so MUCH BETTER can be built in place of this mess!
It's not up to me what anyone else does. I accept that now.
It's up to everyone themselves on their own to choose their specific solutions.

Of course I don't have many serious investigators of what I write (maybe 1 or 2 at best? lol). I lay landmines everywhere I go, and yell don't follow as I jump in the snake pit like a maniac.

I typically shoot into the dark blindly,
expecting to come out like a Jedi or something.
And it somehow worked and still works.
So I should probably keep blowing on the dice till I lose.
Life is roulette anyway, for us all...
I should try to clean house if possible!

I didn't lose anyone here, I never had anyone.
I'm gaining myself finally so at least I might achieve that.
Can't compliment me much when you're sliced to bits anyhow right?
But hey I'm a 'Medic' too so I'll patch up anyone I slash if they let me...

I admit I am deafened by the silence of the aftermath...
Can't you all see our hands are empty???
The sands slip through in time!
I'm lookin for something I can take with me to the 'other side'.
And it ain't something you can see or touch but you will feel it deep within.
That's where "It" hides you know? "You"!

It's free, it's everywhere, it's everything.
And it's impossibly expensive, it's no where, and it's nothing.

I will continue exercising mercy but it isn't easy to maintain balance in the Cesspool of Life. And I don't want anyone else's stars anymore, I'm starring myself for once. (Figuratively)

Not gonna wait a million years for someone else to do it when all I need is my own approval for sharing what I know is important to everyone everywhere on Earth no matter if any of you "get it" yet. One day you will all break through to yourselves too I know it, most of you haven't yet, but I'll never give up on any of you, we're almost there.

A Snail at 33 knots but pulling in the lead??
The last will be first, it's all about thirst! And I'm parched!

I'm not "on a roll" per se, I'm "The Extremist" so I must be "Surfin with the Alien"...

I love how you people talk about struggle but try to seem laid back at the same time. Whatever. I think you meant to seem deep to people but to me all you seemed to be was a punk. Enjoy your retirement, word to the time don't lie, tell people what you really are not what you want them to think you are.

I see you and I share the same "fan". Congrats on moving sideways through the crowd.
