Mopar Moe The origin of this thread sucks. I'm late to the game here, I didn't know OS, and I feel that what he did is unacceptable.
But I will also add this: Life brings an incredible amount of stress ,some of this is brought on by our individual beliefs in what it means to succeed and our desire to do so.

We all have our own shit show, don't get caught up in negativity, it will destroy your mind and your love.

Best wishes to both the families and the friends involved.
RIP

While this is true, I believe the below is true as well. THAT's what made this place, a whole bunch of MF'rs in violent agreement.

DMG Old Scout was always a wise, cool old guy that seemed to be living a good life. What an awful way to go out.

Your insecure in your own skin (condescending people typically are). Most polite people would usually let this slide for a time, then react sporadically with a few choice remarks.

The problem is, you really don't care to grow, learn or do anything different in how you interact with others. Your social skills lack any humility, and character (it just isn't developed to the extent to permit compassion or reverence for another). Your aura of "self importance", constant urge for admiration by teaching us "the best way" to ponder things, arrogance and lack of empathy says quite a bit about you.

And the crazy part is, your so imprisoned in your own world view (religion), you fail to recognize another individuals desire or right to have their own.
So PLEASE, don't come in here and try and define yourself as anything remotely other than petty.

In short you have narcissistic tendencies... that you seem to be oblivious to. And it's thoroughly obvious to most here, which more than likely explains the negative reaction you consistently receive from others when you post in the way you do.

You don't have to stay that way, you realize? Theres an alternative.

You have made a mistake, a common one.

1st, I will point out a complete absence of my posts in any other personal tragedy thread on this board. I don't get involved in GCC's personal stuff because I am clearly inflammatory. My pre-amble above explains why I am in this thread.

2nd, I didn't address east beast. He got insulting with me. You have the mistake of believing I have any obligation to be civil to someone who insults me. I was too nice IMO.

3rd, neither you nor any other human on this planet has a handle on what I do and don't believe.

4th, I made a generalized truism statement about something I believe to be true (it is true), and you, east beast, and every other low, sloping forehead in here made it about ME. I did not. You are used to arguing LIKE, and with, women. I am a man. I will remind you with this truism:
    • small minds discuss people
    • avg minds discuss events
    • great minds discuss ideas

I don't have a great mind, but I discussed a generalized idea. You, eastie, joey, landie, fcj-ie, discussed ME. I did not discuss YOU.

You took up with me.

Well, cry me a river. I thoguht GCC was tough.

And, as I've stated before, none of you cavemen listen to reason, or civility, or ideas. You listen to sensation, and everyone deserves to be communicated with the way that they want to be. I have obliged you.
Well, at least you proved our points!

If your hearing the same thing cited from multiple sources on a fairly persistent basis, maybe it's time to humble yourself and consider what's been said, no?

Food for thought.

You didn't like my post, which really shouldn't be a problem, you should agree. And because you were either too lazy or simply bereft of a point (which is the case, there is no counter-point to what I said), you went right to the "I'm a ____, so _____" argument.

It is this type of moral and intellectual fragility that I'm talking about above.
You're just a delusional blowhard who thinks he has it all figured out. I know this because you try to forcefeed your off-topic bullshit into every post you make. You're basically Trump. You're such socially retarded asshole that it makes people want to reassess their own viewpoints on the rare occasion they may actually agree with you. Basically, your constant bloviating achieves the opposite of what you're trying to accomplish.

I actually resent this. I don't take revenge. That's why I have smooth skin and young looks even though I abuse the fuck out of my old body. I don't go around with rancor in my heart, and I didn't need anyone or any god to teach me that.

You want to know when your moral outlook is insufficient? When you are confronted by something like this and you have to completely flip your view on someone you knew and maybe even loved, like a dozen or more posters here.

Conservative morality has always been fragile. Nothing but a bunch of schoolkids marking out lines in the sand proclaiming THIS is the line we won't cross. Everyone on that side of the line is bad, everyone on this side is good.

Unseasoned. Untested. Unconsidered.

People with rigid moralities are ALWAYS untrustworthy. Never trust a man without a vice, and NEVER trust a man with definite, rigid morality. Ever. They are people without imagination or experience, devoid of the tools necessary to weather an authentic crisis.

The worst ones come in two flavors:

1) The ones that get religion. They're typically the worst.
2) The ones that get cringe-atheism. You know who they are. They typically go around letting you know just how atheist they really are.

Do. Not. Trust. Them.

Imagine being a 40, 50, 60 year old man and having your easy, fragile worldview exploded because someone you loved did shit you just can't face.

Oh yeah, Fuck Texas, and fuck Austin Texas right in the ass. Blue-state faggots.

Deep thoughts with Landslide.

I differ from that opinion to some degree... I think it is possible to overcome any number of issues like say addiction and yeah, even depression.

And who is ever 100%?

Just my way of looking at it.

As to the issue at hand, truly just a sad ending that could/ should have had a very different outcome. We can all agree on that I hope.

Isn't this literally the exact same thing you're doing by being a dick and condescending to him? You thinking your viewpoint doesn't have a counter point is the exact same as claiming moral superiority because of an identity complex.

Intellectual fragility is lacking the ability to see viewpoints other than your own. Good job hypocrite
