Thanks!!! You too!!!
Hey, I'm leaving again!
anyway good luck with everything I may be back if/when Mickey O'Neill leaves and hopefully we shall at that point speak again :P Can't imagine a miser-less tsr.
I had a brief (few month) stint of it a few years ago.
Indeed it is. Fair enough. I've nothing but time so I may as well.
Fine thanks and thanks for the follow back
After some thought, I guess I was incorrect . It slightly pains me to admit that .
Starting adult gymnastics next week, universe willing.
Ah, I see. Fair enough.
I shall reply later. Though, you have hit upon something. Most types of ideologies that I can think of, I feel, fail in the real world.
My initial instincts are certainly pacifistic though.
Is this directed at me personally?
In any case, I view pacifism as the objection to needless violence.
You might say that most people are. But many choose to become enrage and add fuel to the fire.
Interesting. I hadn't given it much thought. It does make sense.
While I think it's generally ill-advised to desist from defending yourself if you're in certain types of situations, I think it's noble to try and cause the least possible damage.
Still, I think my life/body has value and I value myself more than someone who'd needlessly attack me and I know what I'd do in those circumstances.
I suppose I'm quite Jesusy in my thoughts.
Fair enough .
I'm open to doing a martial art though.
Yea. Atm, my personal philosophy revolves around pacifism. I really, really, really don't like confrontation and I feel the world would be a lot better if people were more understanding of others.
There's more to it. Feel free to ask.
I abandoned the task. Well postponed. I've been doing the gym you see, I've been waiting for my upper body strength to increase sufficiently, which might be soon.
