    Time is Always Ticking -Tick-Tock, Tick-Tock, you shouldn't waist it. The clock is ticking...
  1. Great experiment, nice job. I considered doing this as well, as a matter of fact. Question, is the female OkCupid experience different in other ways from the males, like other "abilities", or viewing preferences? I know they hide certain abilities, depending on your profile. I'm surprised to see OkCupid sends messages to these girls giving them pep talks when they are receiving messages out the ass. Ego boost, for any user, should not be needed on a dating website. Why play favorites? Does OkCupid only care if attractive people find matches?
  2. A list of, mostly, philosophy quotes which; I've personally made some form of connection, or understanding with. Some I; understand, follow, wish to understand, wish to follow. Comment, add, question, or dialog but most importantly -pervade. I have a full list, it's 10 pages long, these are just a few which struck my thoughts harder than the rest. I suppose I could add more incrementally, depending on the reception of the thread. I've noticed similar threads, but have not been satisfied. The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars. ~Jack Kerouac Early in life I had to choose between honest arrogance and hypocritical humility. I chose the former and have seen no reason to change. - Frank Lloyd Wright Often when I think over what I have said, I envy dumb people. – Seneca Every man prefers belief to the exercise of judgment. –Seneca * Difficulties are things that show a person what they are. –Epictetus Frivolity is inborn, conceit acquired by education. –Cicero * It is unbecoming for young men to utter maxims. –Aristotle * The bravest sight in the world is to see a great man struggling against adversity. –Seneca Social progress can be measured by the social position of the female sex. –Karl Marx Society is only as good as its weakest link... I’m not sexist. Once made equal to man, woman becomes his superior. –Socrates Real knowledge is to know the extent of one’s ignorance. –Confucius Friendship is a single soul dwelling in two bodies. –Aristotle An absolute can only be given in an intuition, while all the rest has to do with analysis. –Henri Bergson * When you have to make a choice and don’t make it, that is in itself a choice. –William James Don’t you believe that there is in man a deep so profound as to be hidden even to him in whom it is? –Saint Augustine The eyes of the soul of the multitudes are unable to endure the vision of the divine. –Plato The time when most of you should withdraw into yourself is when you are forced to be in a crowd. -Epicurus The firm, the enduring, the simple, and the modest are near to virtue. –Confucius Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle. –Plato Keep silence for the most part, and speak only when you must, and then briefly. –Epictetus The authority of those who teach is often an obstacle to those who want to learn. –Cicero Any man may easily do harm, but not every man can do good to another. –Plato The one exclusive sign of thorough knowledge is the power of teaching. –Aristotle There is no great genius without some touch of madness. –Seneca The essence of genius is to know what to overlook. –William James To hate, to love, to think, to feel, to see; all this is nothing but to perceive. –David Hume * Do not yield to misfortunes, but advance more boldly to meet them, as your fortune permits you. –Virgil The first and greatest victory is to conquer yourself. –Plato To be able to endure odium is the first art to be learned by those who aspire to power. - Seneca Let us train our minds to desire what the situation demands. - Seneca Every heart sings a song, incomplete, until another heart whispers back. - Plato It is one thing to show a man that he is in an error, and another to put him in possession of the truth. - John Locke It's easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled. - Mark Twain
  3. This side, for me, would be my hideous temper. I'm told, by the people who have actually seen me loose my temper, that it's the scariest thing in the world. I've made people cry, I'm literally capable of anything, it can become a twisted attribute. I rarely indulge this side but often when I do it's just to see how far I can push myself. Like punching inanimate objects until my wrist feels like it will crack. The trigger can be tricky though, and once it goes off, best not be on the receiving end of things. For me the trigger is usually something emotional, I think, and the end results are just putrid. When this side is evoked, there is this feeling of just raw power, the onset is like an instant adrenaline rush. The trigger is key though, I'm pretty sure everyone has one, finding it can be difficult.
  4. Herroo, good friend, :L3

  5. Lots, but I'll have new titles after xmas. With me right now I have Fight night 4, Armored core 5, and Skyrim. At my dorm I have more; cod, gears, halo. I sent you a request.
  6. I invented this mix drink recipe after taking a mixology course. I enjoyed it. The Devil's Gold On the rocks 1 oz. Jim Beam Devil's Cut 1 oz. Goldschlager Float Dr. McGillicuddys Vanilla Schnapps on top If you don't like the "Bourbon Burn" add a pinch of Nutmeg, otherwise omit. I named the drink, before, I actually tried to make it. The color comes out an uncanny gold. If you try the drink be sure to let me know your comments. Go slow ;)
  7. Thread to post your GT. I'm Bullseyebud :P looking for people to chat and play games with.
  8. Much Love & Hate By The Pen’s Remark Dummy My thoughts unsuppressed, Still tightly they remain compressed. A broken bannered, Fought for valiantly, But without successes, Tonight I lay my heart to rest. My armor battered and broken, Shattered, Due to stress It’s nothing short a mess. All the king’s horses and all the king’s men Could never mend the wounds I have sufficed, Sliced and diced, I remain here still Enticed but not sufficed. Actions of past haunt me still, Why can I not stop them of my own freewill? A million reasons why I should not give myself to you, Yet I want you to fulfill, This is nothing short a shrill thrill! Through stupidity or stubbornness I Love you more, Even though It sends my heart into a furious uproar. Never will I let you go, Till you deal my heart that deathly blow. Kill me now and lay me down to rest, My arms as well, Nothing less the best For my one and only True duress I wrote this poem black out drunk one night. I've never written any poetry since, nor had I before I wrote this, except for one in school. Comments...
  9. I'm game throw out what ever information you got, quotes are awesome btw. Ego, meaning oneself?
  10. Interesting People. CHECK. That's the idea, a higher end Halloween party, I suppose. But with more emphasis on role playing, like you experienced. Elaborate Costumes. CHECK. It's only as glamorous and mysterious as you imagine it to be. Throw yourself at such a task, get lost in your character for the evening, for the Masquerade commands such dedication! Boooozzze. Double CHECK. Good Company. CHECK. Exactly! How many people would you say?
  11. I swear they just decided to have the award after they realized it was their ten year anniversary. HEY GUYS, WHO WANTS TO PICK THE TOP 10 GAMES OF THE DECADE IN TWO WEEKS?! No... I know -it's true, it was the only Zelda game I didn't take to immediately either. The game mechanics were shotty, I assume at the cost of looks, thinking about it now. I was shocked skyward sword didn't make it in, the game was hailed as another master piece, coming from Nintendo. I thought it was on par with Majora's Mask, without a doubt, except for maybe the depth of the game.
  12. Master -slave morality just seems like an old-school approach at bringing more defined class structures, or social stratification, to society. While it places power in the hands of nobility, so they could create ethical standards for society. It does have similarities, to ethics of virtue, in the way that a few selected qualities were deemed -desirable in an individual or leader. "What he meant by 'morality' deviates from common understanding of this term. For Nietzsche, a particular morality is inseparable from the formation of a particular culture." "The essence of master morality is nobility. Master morality begins in the 'noble man' with a spontaneous idea of the good, then the idea of bad develops as what is not good." "In this sense, the master morality is the full recognition that oneself is the measure of all things. Insomuch as something is helpful to the strong-willed man it is like what he values in himself; therefore, the strong-willed man values such things as 'good'." "For Nietzsche, aristocrats and other ruling castes of ancient civilizations held a form of dual preference for what they considered to be "good" and "evil." These were not moral laws per se, but values that coincided with their relationship to lower castes such as slaves." It's actually not a terrible idea for how morals may have come to exist in ancient times, with emphasis on things like castes, and a single ruler. I don't think this is meant to be practiced though; this concept is the idea for how morality worked in ancient civilizations, however, there are definitely some correlations between master slave and the philosophies of Aquinas.
  13. Well I've found specifically; that with the "newer" generation, mine, that immediate gratification is a distinct driving force as a motivator, and with that came many outlets. I've come to understand the consequences of my actions, through my family, the church, and general experience, but to try and teach this, it would have such restraints. I couldn't imagine consequentialism on a universal scale, however this is not to say it isn't an incredibly important class of ethics. I simply see many of the consequences of an individual's actions never come to light, full force, with the intensity they need to drive home such an important point. I've also seen people place a little to much weight on things like carma, doing nothing, when they see someone doing something "wrong". Mean while the person observing finds, I think, a little to much solace in knowing that that individual is "going to get whats coming to them". A lot of times I will see people do something, "wrong", and they don't know it. Why? Because they haven't had to deal with the consequences of their actions in life. No one showed them that their actions actually effected people and in return have consequences. I see people that just left these things up to fate; which could be okay to a small degree, but as I see it it's generally not the optimal way to go about learning or teaching morals. Deontology focuses more on the good will of a person, consequentialism focuses too much, based off what I understand as producing a good outcome. I see consequentialism as a judgment of what an observer has perceived from an event, and not a judgment of an individual's character. That being said, I'd be lying if I said I had never done anything egotistical in my life. Overall, in the grand scheme of things, my ethical perspectives fall under objectivism - and not subjectivism.
