    After about a year of this, I was telling my wife about “that guy on the Internet,” and she immediately fell back on his child psychology education, telling me that I was just an asshole and I should be encouraging people like that to participate in social groups like this, because it really helps.

    So I passed her my phone and directed her to a particular thread with a high-density of confrontational comments, passive-aggressive remarks, fits of rage that you know had some tears behind them, and lots and lots of excuses and crutch-using.

    And she was like, “Oh. Never mind.”

    I was nicer after that, though. For a bit, at least.
    That's all well and good, but I just need you to know that if somebody exposes me to peanuts it's all on you buddy.

    As an aside I actually miss Thief. I know he was about as popular as syphilis around here and his endless threads did wear thin, but he was a really nice guy to me personally.

    It's not rage, rage is too strong of a word in my eyes. I'm just dramatic to get a point across at times. Text is just a very poor way to get across tone and I just never learned how to get my cynical snarky joking tone across. Always been a person who loves comedy and comedic dramatics. Sometimes tho I do get too caught up. You know what tho. You are right. I admit to my faults I don't always notice. Honestly now thinking on it. I just forget that while anon yes and online is an easy platform to get some strong opinions across. I may be talking too much at people than to them. You're right. I also don't know what I want as I can be a walking contradiction. In my daily life, I ban all talk about politics. Yet dump all that here. So you know what. Fair is fair. I may have started this thread but it really should be for people wanting to discuss not be anyone's twitter. I'm not sarcastic all right now. Dead serious. So this is my vow. I will stay out of it even if I disagree with it in this topic. I get too caught and like a snowball hard to stop and I am the only one to blame. So I will make a much greater effort. This thread is for you guys, not one guy. This forum is for everyone, not one guy. You don't have to accept this. I cannot change everything about social faults and all but I can try harder. Having a filter is really difficult. I can do it to a degree if I really really try and it's just too easy to not. My fault. Again not being sarcastic. So I apologize to the forum. This place is to have fun. Y'all are right. I love SEGA and so does everyone else. Any common ground is enough to build a foundation to get along. I have not made the effort. No matter the reasons I have been wrong. A person becomes irrational when too caught up at times and when irrational you sound like a dumbass. Give me the dunce cap and I will wear it.


    This thread is now yours. Feel free to discuss this. I will bow out so as to not ruin the discussion any further. Other topics will put more of a filter on the dramatics and let the more lighthearted side show through more. Sincere when I say. Hugs for all.

    Hell, I know that, Bonus. You're a good guy with a difficult job. You may not get much thanks for it, but I for one appreciate the work you do.

Not saying it will definitely happen but it doesn't seem terribly unlikely.
    That could happen, but it'd only be a band-aid to give Republicans more time before Democrats eventually takeover forever. The only way to prevent the Democrats from taking over forever is to bring the demographics of America back to 1776-2020.

    Thats like trying to convince a wolf to switch to a vegan diet. Blacks and latinos can't resist the urge to vote Democrat, they've been doing it since the 1960s and they'll never stop.


    So hopefully a lot of you are noticing why ethnic diversity doesn't work, different races vote for their own political parties. You see the same thing in places like Sweden, the native Swedes mostly vote for their own party while the non-European immigrants vote for their own party.

    I feel bad that you think it's necessary to leave your own thread because you didn't like people randomly talking about politics in other threads. Also for the love of god please cease trying to delete your own posts because it only makes you look worse. I don't want to lock the post edit function but you're going to make me do it if you keep it up.

    Btw Vamp I saw that deleted post of yours. It made me laugh.

    I think its important that we respect people's allergies, these things can be quite dangerous.

    Yes I saw that. Com'mon Segata thats kinda a pussy thing to do. I've never edited any of my 3500+ posts and I've said some outrageous and uneducated stuff.

    I will finally tell you guys something about this.

    In the early 2000s I use to live around a kid that had a peanut allergy. One day he ate something with actual peanuts in it, it wasn't like a trace amount. Seeing him freak out was about as traumatizing to watch, as seeing the paralyzed mouse I caught in a mouse trap at the start of this month.

    Screaming with his mouth and eyes wide open, flailing his arms, the type of behavior you'd imagine.

    Actually, I’m kind of hoping the strain of the overly-dramatic theatrics killed him.
