You're in for a rough time Melkor XD
I am not impressed by any of this crap, and I am a woman. Most of the women I know are not. Maybe you are attracted to the wrong sort of woman, and maybe you are too focused on impressing the wrong sort of woman. Maybe you need to get over your big, bad self, Red Toad. Maybe you need to masturbate more. Maybe you need to....Ok guys think of it though. Why do we do the things we do?
We do we start wars? To gain land and money? Maybe freedom? Why do we need land, money, and freedom? So we can impress women and have the freedom to have sex with them!
It all comes down to women...either women or our horribly crazy sex drive.
Perfect way of putting it, Cog.Take heart Melkor as all is a learning experience and by experiencing this yourself you will also serve to educate me; although I will not have to suffer for the gaining of this knowledge like you will.
haha. hehe.. ... >.>
lmao. That cracked me up. Some people were actually talking about this, and thought he was maybe ISTP-ish, or something. I guess... hm... I may as well throw in my two cents, cause the OP bugged me a lot, too.
^^this, too, cracked me up, lol. How is this not supposed to be sexist? I know you're not trying to be a jerk, but there's a lot of.... one-way blame? It's basically what lor said, I think, but--why would you take the woman who 'causes' trouble and blame her for it? It seems a bit like.... well, sort of like blaming money itself (in whatever form--land, animals, natural resources, etc) for the wars that have been fought over it. Instead of blaming the land/resources, we blame the greedy people who fight over it. Sure, if nothing of value existed, people might have peace, and when resources get introduced, people fight over them.... but it's because greed sleeps whenever there's nothing to own. I believe you're witnessing the same effect every time a woman comes into the picture.Please don't consider this thread sexist or anything. I really have nothing against women. I love women.
My theory is that woman has been the cause for man's suffering since humans were able to feel pain.
This... hm... trying to put this as gently as I can: what makes you think this isn't self-inflicted? It seems sort of common-sense-y, but I sorta think that you only attract the people who are attracted to how you act. By all means, correct me if I'm wrong.... but a lot of your posts around here sort of scream "pay attention to me and the flashy self-image I put out!" Also correct me if I'm wrong, but I would guess that when that carries over into how you look for women, it's probably heavily image-based--fairly skinny, nice clothes/dresses, smiling a lot, wearing makeup, maybe wearing high heels, etc. But, if you'll follow: the skinny body takes incredible amounts of effort to maintain (if it's even possible, depending on the person's natural body-type), fancy clothes are unnatural, nobody's really that happy that they're smiling and having fun al the time, makeup alters the natural face, and high heels causes so much pain (I've heard) that it reminds me of Chinese foot-binding.Than what happens after we finally find a girlfriend or get married? They try to change everything that makes us happy! Why must they always try to change us?!?!? I was a fun guy before my gf...she destroyed my spirit. I had to quit smoking. I have to comb my hair, do my laundry, and always look "nice" for her. I can't eat junk food. I can't even eat after 10 o'clock for god sakes! If I do break any of her rules she makes me feel so guilty I could kill myself.
Of course I'm a dude...did you expect me to cry with you?
Why did I think you were a chick?Speaking as a heterosexual male here, there are two things in this world which will turn a self-contained confident male into a blathering idiot - falling in love with a woman and holding your own child in your arms.
If women are 'the source of all evil', then brand me a satanist and may I burn for eternity in that hell.
I don't know. I suppose that this illustrates that it is difficult to know a person merely by what one writes. Outside of those individuals who have stated their gender, I couldn't guess with any accuracy gender or type.Why did I think you were a chick?
Any 'N' worth his salt would pick up within 5 minutes of meeting a woman that brash, unbridled destructive risk-taking isn't impressive to them.I am not impressed by any of this crap, and I am a woman. Most of the women I know are not.
I think you've confused evil with stupidity... actually I take that back, you're right.As far as women being the "root of evil", anyone who has spent time around an exclusively male group knows that more destructive competitions (boxing, fighting, wrestling, drinking contests and serious boozing, throwing large objects at things, jumping into frozen lakes, car racing, "skitching"*) occur when there are no women around to compete over.
Indeed. Ladies, take note of this ^Oh, and what's wrong with being evil anyway? There is nothing hotter than women who try to take over the world.
That's teasing,Also, I do think that scientists are responsible for what they create. Partially at least. Building super-weapons and let idiots control them is like putting a bowl with cookies in a room with five-year olds, say "But don't eat them" and go away.
Red toad here seems to be in stage 1.Jung believed anima development has four distinct levels, which he named Eve, Helen, Mary, and Sophia. In broad terms, the entire process of anima development in a male is about the male subject opening up to emotionality, and in that way a broader spirituality, by creating a new conscious paradigm that includes intuitive processes, creativity and imagination, and psychic sensitivity towards himself and others where it might not have existed previously.
The first is Eve, named for the Genesis account of Adam and Eve. It deals with the emergence of a male's object of desire, yet simultaneously generalizes all females as evil and powerless.
The second is Helen, in allusion to Helen of Troy in Greek mythology. In this phase, women are viewed as capable of worldly success and of being self-reliant, intelligent and insightful, even if not altogether virtuous. This second phase is meant to show a strong schism in external talents (cultivated business and conventional skills) with lacking internal qualities (inability for virtue, lacking faith or imagination).
The third phase is Mary, named for the Christian theological understanding of the Virgin Mary (Jesus' mother). At this level, females can now seem to possess virtue by the perceiving male (even if in an esoteric and dogmatic way), insomuch as certain activities deemed consciously unvirtuous cannot be applied to her. As per Ken Wilber's terminology, this third phase seems to represent Up spirituality while the second phase represents Down spirituality.
The fourth and final phase of anima development is Sophia, named for the Greek word for wisdom. Complete integration has now occurred, which allows females to be seen and related to as particular individuals who possess both positive and negative qualities. The most important aspect of this final level is that, as the personification "Wisdom" suggests, the anima is now developed enough that no single object can fully and permanently contain the images to which it is related.
Indeed it does, in fact it's an INTJ's most attractive feature.Noted. And on my way. Does it still apply to INTJs though, since pretty much all of us want to take over the world?
Whomever gets Australia wins, haven't you ever played Risk?You can cut but I get to choose.
Australia,Real Life Troper Tale example: Whenever this troper has heard a declaration by someone (usually an engineering/computer science major) of their world domination intentions, he always gets them to agree to give him Australia. So far no one has caught on to what they're giving up: beautiful coastal regions (for tourism/PR purposes), a hardy and proud indigenous people (for labor/state legitimacy), and a giant, desolate center (perfect for renewable energy power plants AND undisturbed military complexes). It's the real-world Latveria as far as this troper can see. Give everyone a job, free health care, education and the best products the world has to offer, they'll allow your benevolent dictatorship all kinds of diabolical experiments in the Bush. After a few years, you use your advanced robotics and gene-gineered shock troops to leapfrog invade the rest of Australasia before anyone realizes what's happened. Then you rename the whole thing the "Commonwealth of Oceania" and declare it the most free, awesome place on Earth, while everyone else suffers under the heel of your original benefactor.
Australians already have jobs, free health care and free education. We've been socialist since Federation. You must be thinking of a more backwards country.
And I wonder why there aren’t any younger women who can scare grown men with their maniacal laughter as they play a simulation of world conquest, Why Cruel World, WHY!?!...and I wonder why grown men refuse to play with me?
Ah, but that's what they think,Australia sucks. You have only one way out of it and that opens onto the hordes of Asia. Taking Aust first is a poor strategy...
I just tell the Asian twit not to attack me and wait until some other twit tries to destroy him/her, then I make my move.yeah... I always let the aust/asia twits weaken themselves against each other before I moved on them....
