There is no end to my harem. (I will create relevant images later...)

Morals are irrelevant in the grand scheme of things, and can hence be ignored. It's quite an enlightening discipline. Thoughts along the lines of nihilism have allowed me to realize many things. For example that there is no purpose in life, and hence we have no obligation to live it in whatever way. We can just choose to live life the way we want, as far as situations permit. Morals can be ignored for personal gain, which is quite useful. Judgement is stupid, I don't easily judge others, and I recognize that it's natural for others to get angry at me. This allows me to solve social conflicts quickly, and without leaving a bitter after taste.

Completely throwing away the principle of morals and judgement (though of course still acting like a normal human. humanity is not something I can transcend) does not actively change your life that much, but it does give a you strong sense of relief. Nothing matters, and that's a good thing.

 

Yep, and like I said, the meaning of things, and whether they matter, are entirely up to you! For me, it's not a bad thing. We create our own reality, to a certain extent.

Oh to me they all suck. Some less than other though.


These are considered sitcoms? Really? Well in this case my favorite sitcom is The Simpsons. I watched like every season at least twice.

Yea give Futurama a shot.

Also, Garfield is número uno in my book.

So when someone does something to you that undermines the way you choose to live your life, your personal judgement, you would...?

I'm getting the impression here that you are impossible to upset.

No, that's a more stereotype BS than sexist.

Funny thing: both of us forgot to reply to the first thing we quoted in our last posts and had to go back and edit it!

 

I can't think of a Futurama episode I disliked.

 

You look down from your throne of superiority and scoff at the peon who dare provoke Your Excellency...or just ignore it, because nothing matters, and therefore, they don't matter. :p

My answer is "I do not consider this to be sexist".

Oh I watched a lot of Futurama. Maybe half of it.

I rarely ever get mad without being a nihilist-ish person. Frustration also is something I only feel once in a blue moon.
Some people suspected me of being a pothead or whatever because I'm super chill most of the time :P

I asked Tom, though. XD

 

I would already expect you to not be offended by such a silly joke as that one.

 

Hmm...I wonder if your real name is anything like your username. *strokes goatee in contemplation*

Nope, that is a shortened/callable form of my ingame nick (darkX3536). However, for most Japanese games that I am in, I now use VICTROCK

Finally finished the energy drink while playing "The Battle Is To The Strong" (from the Fate/Zero soundtrack) on repeat! I could listen to this song all day...

"I could say the same to you". Google Translate derps sometimes. There isn't a proper direct translation for it though, so it's understandable.

 

To be fair, I probably used it incorrectly.

hehe...only one beloved former member of this thread knows my unbelievably cool full name. :cool:

 

(Most people only have three parts in their name - first, middle, and last; I have seven!)
