Against most thinking, the idea of hurting other animals is closer to our nature than all the other stuff.

All animals f*ck, eat and fight, and they fight to eat and f*ck. Every creature has no compunction over killing another animal, for no other reason than it's close by.

No worries; I might try the drive through one though, then my wife can order and pay and I don't have to remember what everyone wants and go digging for my wallet. Simples.

This one might amuse you:

We invented a game called 'Freckles,' where one of us would sh1t on a railway line and we'd all have to lie as close as possible to the track. The one who had the least freckles had to lie flat between the tracks when the next train went over.

Choose your spot wisely, or you'll only play it once.

There is an underground station near where I grew up that was never finished and none of the subways stop there. We used to play this game of chicken where we'd have to trying to run to it before the next train came and the goal was to see who would be last to jump off the platform to start running. Never in any real danger as you could always lie down but it was always fun when playing games for the first time.

This freckles game is so much better. An outdoors game too.

I'd want to be the one who lays marker for everyone to get as close as they can to.
That way I can sh*t on everyone either way.

I've noticed that people ask me if I eat what I hunt. Like it really matters. I wonder if it's a wastefulness issue because technically I could become vegan.


On my side, it's about feelings - though not necessarily irrational. I just regret having hurt bigger and smaller creatures who trusted me. Granted my record is small, the sadness ensures that I will not do it again (in comparison, the shame from losing control itself is quicker to fade).

Sometimes they're in fear or they need to eat... Plenty of species also cohabit without hurting each other. While I would not do this myself, it's natural enough to kill an animal to eat it. There are also more dimensions to us than to animals, that we may choose to take into account as well.

Disconnecting here... Leaving you guys to Freckles!

Walked into a stranger's kitchen and went through their fridge looking for food.
Shot a cross-bow bolt through a heating pipe in my parents house to see what it would do.
Pulled the heating controls off the wall because the boiler wasn't working.
Urinated over the balcony onto the dancefloor of a nightclub.
Bought loads of stuff I've never used.
Shot at random people with an air rifle from my bedroom window.

The list goes on. How does 20/20 hindsight make me feel about that stuff? Like a f*cking moron, but it was all fun.

Why did I do that stuff? No idea, just because I wanted to at the time.

I keep adding stuff I remember; probably not a good thing that it's still funny.


You’ve certainly got me beat but that’s my problem when I look back at what I did MOST of the time I find it hilarious and I usually think whatever I did was well worth the memory.

Well most of you guys are totally nuts and got me beat easily but a few things that come to my mind are...

-Driving god know how fast on the highway but the car was redlined I was so shlt faced I couldn’t even see the lines.

-Ohh this was a fuking good one lmao, went to a club with a friend he kept feeding me shot after shot I was totally fuked, he was my ride and moving around soo much I was losing him in an attempt to keep up I started just shoving everyone out of my way, dudes women children well probably not children but anyone who got in my way. Bouncers grabbed me while someone opens the door and pushed me right out before I knew what was happening, so obviously I got into another argument trying to get back IN.

When that didn’t work I decided to go wait at the car, I got lost but found a food truck and got a sausage sandwich which was delicious, ran into a drunk chick that was crying so I talked to her for awhile then realized I have no way home. Got pissed punched a sign two dude got out that I thought were cops for some reason and tried to rough me up, which didn’t work and when I asked to see badges or the would have a big problem the hopped back in their car a took off. I then walked home probably 4-5 miles on the HIGHWAY because it’s the only way I could think to get home for some reason, I can’t believe I didn’t die.

-Was involves in a conflict it really had nothing to do with me but the other dude had a bat in his hand and was right I don’t of me but looking at my friend and I thought I have a free shot right at his chin, so I took it, knocked him out cold, just seemed like the fastest way to end the situation.

-Bought a car off two dudes I didn’t know, they couldn’t get it started but of course I figured they are too stupid and I could fix it, well I couldn’t put a for sale sign on the window and sold the car to someone else for what I paid for it plus what I paid in parts.

-Got lucky on this one, got drunk went to see my ex to try and get laid, she was with some dude so I was yelling back and forth with them left was irate got cut off on the highway and because I was drunk I rear ended him so I figured may as well hit him a few more times while I’m at it. He was trying to hustle money out of me and I told him to fuk off and call the cops, which he did and they let me go because I lived like 2 minutes from there( would never happen in this time)

There’s more, maybe I’ll post some later. Ohhh lmao at Jomp going in someone house and hunting for foood in the fridge, something I would totally do if I was inebriated

You go out of your way to prove we're nothing alike.


Yeah, I don't try to portray myself as a successful, corporate psychopath who has an interesting career that takes him all over the world, and an understanding wife with nice tits.

If I wanted to come on a forum and feign psychopathy, that would be the ideal image to present. Wouldn't you agree...?

The consequences aren't even part of the thought process. You just accept the risk and do it.


Not really; I don't accept the risk because I don't see it until afterwards.


Are you trying to tell me that, before you got in that car, you had no idea that drink driving is illegal and that alcohol can affect your gross motor skills (balance, co-ordination etc)?

Risk and consequences are not the same thing.

Being aware that something is illegal because it's potentially dangerous (which is why the risk of drink driving exists) is not the same as considering the possible consequences that can result from taking that risk. You would think they go hand-in-hand, but in my experience and clearly yours, they don't because even though you know drink driving is illegal, which means you're aware there's a risk in doing it, you're not seeing the potential danger until after the fact.

It's different to walking to a train station in the rain. You know that getting wet is inevitable, so you can't help but be aware of the potential consequences of your actions in that situation.


I was already in the rain, walking past his car.


Right, so you were already experiencing the consequences, which is why that affected you more. Getting in a car drunk and driving home is a relief from the rain.

Your mind is reward-driven. All you're really thinking about is getting the reward, nothing else matters.

There's a BIS/BAS test that's interesting. How you score on it gives insight into your thought process towards reward and punishment. I am also reward-driven, so I wouldn't be surprised if our scores were similar. I'd like to see what you score on it. Others here can take it as well if they want:

The BIS/BAS Scale is a 24-item self-report questionnaire designed to measure two motivational systems: the behavioral inhibition system (BIS), which corresponds to motivation to avoid aversive outcomes, and the behavioral activation system (BAS), which corresponds to motivation to approach goal-oriented outcomes.

Test link: http://www.fortrefuge.com/quiz-BIS-BAS.php

Here are my scores if anyone is interested:

You are motivated by:
anticipation or occurrence of reward: 65%
pursuit of desired goals: 94%
desire for new rewards and impulsive approach to potential rewards: 100%
anticipation of punishment: 29%

I like psychology, so tests like this are interesting to me. Of course, you can never really be certain how accurate the results are.
