LOL What LOL the fuck LOL did you LOL just say?

She was alone then? I don't get it.

Find the old man, kick his ass while your wife watches...

Satisfaction.

Okay, I'm not actually telling you to do that... don't do that... nevermind, it's all cool... don't hurt anybody, that's my motto.

Old man is fucking with your wife? If nothing can be done in your shitbag town... MOVE.

Someone fucks with my girl,

They're gonna crawl with their broken fingers over blood and spit to try and find their eyeball and their missing teeth.

Or...

I'll be dead.

They'll still be limping for the rest of their life.

It's like a Win/Win.

She was alone, I was on my way home from work but he was gone by the time I got there or I would be behind bars I'm sure. I was just surprised she didn't kick his ass. Not normally a very timid girl.

Manofsteel, I think it’s ironic that you say Satanists are among the nicest people you know, and immediately some of the members here (who I presume are Satanists or at least generally agree with Satanism) start ripping into you.

If you even briefly peruse this website you’ll find that Satanists rarely fit into the “nice” category. That’s not a knock on Satanism – “nice” often suggests to me slick charmers not unlike politicians or used car salesmen. I relate to Satanists not because they are “nice” but because they tend to be authentic. They tell it to you straight, even if it means pissing you off.

Personally, I have no use for those who constantly paint themselves as “nice” by smiling and nodding and avoiding the slightest hint of confrontation. If I’m screwing up, I want someone to tell me in no uncertain terms that I’m screwing up so I’ll know better next time.

“Nice” and a buck fifty will buy you a cup of coffee. Just go to any major city and check out the guys at the intersections holding cardboard signs. They’re as nice as can be. Hell of a lot of good it’s done them.

A Joe Bananas quote! Good stuff.

Here is another mafia related one: "Keep your friends close, but your enemies closer." Vito Corleone, quoted by Michael Corleone.

Sorry, I think maybe a thread should be started with great mafia quotes, such as the Bananas one and the Godfather one.

To Manofsteel - don't worry about what others are doing, focus on what you're doing. If you don't like it where you live then move away.

To Will - nice post

I have to agree with William on this one. "Nice" is not the term I would use to describe Satanists. Honesty and blatant truthfulness would be more like it.

To Manofsteel: That guy was lucky it wasn't me standing at the ATM. I tend to tell people it's their problem if they're having a bad day and not mine, in rather abrupt terms.

I tend to be like this myself, especially at work. I've found that lately I'm more vocal than I've been in a LONG time about what I think. My bullshit detector has been on overdrive and I'm less tolerant of it when I hear it. Sometimes I'll say something and sometimes I keep the info filed away for what REALLY needs to be said at a later date.

I agree with you whole heartedly. I think you took what I meant wrong and I should have elaberated more. I just mean at least as nice listening when someone is giving their opinion or talking and then telling them they are full of shit. At least give someone the chance. Most of us do that and aren't so quick to judge as many others. I just think we take in what we hear, think about it and then make a decision while others, ( need I say religous people) are very quick to judge. I get accused of being an asshole a lot so I in nomeans think we are all little angels, I just think we at least hear people out before we say something to them.

I'll give you some useful advice that you can take as a warning: don't become attached to other people. By becoming attached to another means that we make that person an object of attachment. This is just a way of becoming attached to ourselves in the form of attachment to that other person. Attachment to another person is really attachment to the self. Becoming attached to the self means that the self has entraped itself. Now, this is entrapment of the self by itself, we become a prisoner of that other person. This can be looked upon as a form of an egocentric position. The risk inherent in being attached to another person and therefore entraping ourselves becomes clear when that other person is taken away from us. When the other person is taken away, we experience the pain of being robbed of our own selfhood, for the most part: completely.

Existence is self-awarness.

Existence aware of itself is self-attachment.

Kumtcha!

paolo sette,

That was the worst circle logic I have ever read. And you somehow managed to think that was advice? Really?

Something must be really broken in me, because I enjoy the bonds I have with the people in my life, and for those that have left this lifetime, I can't imagine my life without knowing them. I didn't lose myself but learned more about myself and life, because of them. In one way or another, they enriched my life, even if there were some rough times. For those that have simply moved on or I have pulled away from, more power to them and me. The things I've learned along the way are priceless, and there aren't many that I hold a grudge against. I still can't imagine my life without knowing them too. I didn't lose myself; I grew to be the person I am now, instead.

You have some weird issues going on and to give advice like that speaks volumes. I'm glad I'm not like you.

I wholheartedly agree. Too truely live you have to become close to people, especially the ones u love. I would rather have a best friend and a lover and lose them than to never have had one at all. At least I had experienced that feeling. But, it is a personal choice and decision.

Other people are just assholes for the reason they probably don't match an individuals own code of honour and views on different topics.

As far as I am concerned, no person walking the surface of this planet can be considered nice. Not even those whom I (should) respect, mentored me, share ideas with or even have a little chitchat about puffy little things with.

In general, people truly are assholes in nature. At least, those who I do not like and (dis)belief stories/words/concepts/ideas which I find quite "fill in adjective".

At least I'll be fair with y'all, I'm a hypocrit, a liar, a racist, a scammer and whatnot I have been called before. But I admit being a hypocrit in some situations, I admit for having lied to people and it wouldn't be the first time I partake in a smallscale scam. Perhaps I should join a carnival, or the circus as a con-man. But what truly counts in my own book of honour and morals.

I see no disadvantage in becomming attached to another person, to the extend it isn't counterproductive or clouding the mind.
To each their own perhaps, I'm quite an elitist on social level. And very elitist when it comes to love-life and the subject of having sex. Only had one girlfriend and am still a virgin. I see no problems in admitting that. Quality above quantity my mind says. And I honestly fail to see how a person can take honour in saying how many girls/guys he/she fucked. But thats just me.

To me personal honor, according to my own code is very important. It is one of the very few things that no one can ever take away from me.

It’s a slippery slope though, because I do not feel that I have to be honorable to those who are not the same with me. On one hand I am very comfortable about lying to those who I don’t care about, but believe in being open with friends and allies.

When I give my word, or make a promise, I fully intend to keep it, even if it may be detrimental to me in some way. That is why I very rarely make promises even to friends, and never to anyone who I am not close to.

If I make a deal or have an agreement with someone with a verbal promise and a handshake, I CHOSE to be bound by it one hundred percent and will not attempt to find loopholes in the agreement in order to get out of it. On the other hand if someone insists on written contracts and signatures through the ass, I feel no obligation to abide by it. This doesn’t mean that I wouldn’t honor any written contract, but since I don’t feel that I gave my word of honor on it, it is not nearly as strong of an obligation in my view. In other words a written contract doesn’t have nearly as much meaning to me, as an agreement based on honor and trust.

Also if someone wants to tell me a secret I intend to keep it at all cost, but I often tell them before hand that I will likely reveal it under physical torture, but generally that is the only way anyone would get it out of me. When I was in the psych field, at times this was a bit of a dilemma because I felt the same obligation to keep the secrets of psychiatric patients if they asked to speak to me in confidence. If they asked to tell me something and said that they didn’t want me to share the information with anyone I ALWAYS told them up front that there were certain things that I could not be bound to, because if the secret was about an intent to harm themselves or others I would not be willing to keep that kind of a burden to myself.
When it comes to friends and allies, I make no such exceptions. They can tell me anything at all and I will not reveal it, if I tell them that I wont. This is one reason that I don’t like to be told serious things in confidence and why I chose my friends and allies very carefully.

I also hold others in high esteem, who have a strong belief in honor, as long as their honor system somewhat matches my own. Those people who can never tell a lie to anyone and often make promises to anyone under the sun, are stupid in my view and do not fit the honorable category.

Music to my ears. I am the same way. I am old school I guess cause I believe in a handshake and that should do it. People anymore don't have any trust but I believe it needs to be earned back for society to ever recover. Everyome is too scared and rightfully so of all going on around us. A firm handshake and a hug should be all it takes to make someone believe that you are true. I am 33 and I can remember when that was still the case. Hope you all had a safe Halloween and please live like it is your last day every day!!!!

“Nice” definition you give me there manofsteel. Cleverly concealed within the syntax of a compliment. “The nicest people” you know eh? Gee, I feel sadistic all of the sudden, how can it be? What a strange sensation, I never felt like this before. Nah, I’m just kidding. I’m actually the nicest guy you’ll ever meet, coming at ya in my “rollercoaster of love,” safety-tested and setting out to please. Oh damn, it’s five o’clock already! I have this thing going you know, I’ll be right back ok…? Yeah talk to you later, you too, ok, bye!
