I used to think there were evil things in the dark and that they would eat me if I didn't lie still in bed when the lights were off.
I blame watching my dad play Silent Hill when I was a preteen.
And I don't regret it one bit.
That and spiders in my bed/piranhas in the bathtub.

Then I would wait to see if anybody else noticed.

Certainly not the troll who is getting into all your bank accounts at this very moment, oh no, dear me, that would be too good.
Aug 27, 2011First, decriminalize all drugs, legalize prostitution, allow freedom of AND from religion (meaning heavy penalties for discriminating against someone for being irreligious as well as religious.)Posted in: General Off Topic
Then nationalize all essential industries (power, oil, food, radio, television, anything that is an absolute necessity for everyday life), increase funding in infrastructure and public transport, place strict regulations on large businesses, progressive taxes, abolish patent laws, reform management education, reform regular education, and reform the prison system.
Establish social security net for the poor, homeless, and unemployed; write a constitution giving every person the right to food, water, homes, employment, healthcare, fair treatment, self-defense, and information.
Balance the defense budget, invest in light and heavy industry, ban nuclear power, enact policies to keep the water clean and safe to drink and the land to be free of pollution and littering and despoilment, pour funding into the research of renewable energy.
I will make public appearances frequently and let any man speak freely against me, I will cultivate a cult of personality to ensure my people love and support me as their ruler, I will make my legacy sacred to those who prosper under my rule.
Finally, ban wars of aggression, fund a strong defense force for my country, and declare my state to be a constitutional monarchy.
If I have any neighbors, I will establish excellent trade relations with them and provide support whenever they ask, while I establish a massive spy network to keep an eye on everyone around me and sabotage, blackmail, and assassinate anyone who poses any real threat to me.
I will ally myself with my neighbors and establish a federation to spread my laws and principles far and wide.

So, you would use a precise method against your adversaries? Please elaborate.
I have long fancied the idea of taking mind-warping torture to it's logical conclusion: Friendship and Love!
There's just something so appealing to me about the ability to make the worst and foulest of your enemies into the best of your friends in a way that makes them suffer so horribly as to change even the most instinctual of thoughts.
Unfortunately, it seems I do this more to myself than anyone else, now that I think about it...

"But dey don't understand meeeee. :[ "
Nonsense! We'll have all the time in the world to get acquainted...
Yes, all of the time, all of the mind, all of the soul...
All of the seeeeecrets~...
That's always the kind of friend I wanted to have.
The kind that I made into my friend.
Not by force, mind you, but by surgical precisionnnnnn~.
Quote from oZodeFamily problems?
My parents always loved me and I'm an only child. So, yes.
Aug 26, 2011I think somewhere along the line people confused this thread with "Method of Torturing a Person to Death."Posted in: General Off Topic
Because generally speaking if you want someone dead you want it quick and quiet or big and showy.
But if you wanted to go purely for misery and agony points it's entirely another matter.
Besides, in that kind of situation I wouldn't want the person to die at all.
I'd rather we become friends instead.

Yes, it's true. But don't make the mistake of thinking any other country is much better than the US. Pretty much every country on Earth is corrupt.
That is true, but the reason everyone picks on America is because it's a large, powerful country that tends to throw its weight around.
The over-the-top nationalism of many of its citizens is also rather obnoxious.
Aug 26, 2011The politicians have become irrelevant. It is the forces behind them that make all the decisions.Posted in: General Off Topic
What we see about the various senators and governors is just kabuki theater. The real politics happen behind the scenes. To think the government is anything more than a vehicle for other powers at this point is foolishness.

Make no mistake. The US has never been a place of honest labour or honest politics. You're idealizing the past. Hell - in the past it was easy to be a lying politician, since before the advent of TV most people barely knew what you looked like. Now there's a million ways to get caught.
The past is not more glorious than the present. It's like nostalgia goggles, only with nations instead of video games.
Well there's only one response to that I'm afraid.
Aug 26, 2011I have a battery-powered mechanical clock on my nightstand. The ticking acts as a metronome to help me sleep better at night.Posted in: General Off Topic
Also I have a habit of rubbing my hands together maniacally whenever I'm excited.
