What is love?
I've been having some serious insight latly and I've been brought to this question one to many times. How do you all define love? I find that everyone has a different perspective on it, and this seems to lead to mixed results and broken hearts in some cases. So if htis is the case, then what is real love, or what do you think it would be like to find such a thing? Or are such a pecimist that you simply don't believe in it at all? I am traditional to the idea that love is unconditional and ever present. True love never fails or reconsiders. I know this is very stereo typical, but this is my sentiment on the topic. This is probably why I've never had a girlfriend til resently. I couldn't be with someone I didn't feel something for. How is love to you? Do you beilieve it's there or is it just part of human and primal nature, nothing more. Or do you believe that it is in fact a deeper sentiment? I pose this question and hope for a response. Please try and be mature about this people.

How many does it take
Were nearing the new year and now we stand in reflection of the year passed. We look back and see our triumphs and our foleys, our vitories and defeats. To this I ask, how many does it take to change the way of the world. Some believe that only one voice can force a new era, but is that still prevelant in the society of today. We have our information super highways now, is it really possible to preach and effective message on ones own. If it is, then who has taken the world to where it is and why can't they better it, or do they simply not care. But if it takes more then one, I suggest it starts with those of us here. We are the new generation here and we need to think of how we will forge the world before us. this world will belong to us in only a few years and then what will we do with it. Will we look upon it and simply let it run the course paved by our parents and forefathers or will we take a stand and forge our own paths in this world. Will we take the easy way or the hard way. Will we do right or wrong? So many questions and no definite answers. I just wish to know if any one here has the foresight to see where our world is going and to see if they want to change it. I think in the end, word are meaningless, and the future will be decided with actions. I don't think you can shape the world with a voice, a voice without a body is just and echo in the wind. Where do the rest of you stand on this. Can we really change the world with a voice? If so how many? And if not, what will bring the world to it's next great plateau? We stand on the verge of the future. Will we simple walk in the foot steps or will we walk beyond them, to the next great thing.

I hope the holidays have been good to all my friends here on the MyO, and hope only the best for all of you, but rightnow I'd like to pose a rather bleak question. In the face of the, what is normally veiwed as, a cheerful and festive time of the year, why is it the suicide rate is never higher then during this holiday season. That's right, the christmas season is the highest point of the year for suicide related death in america. All I want to pose as the question is a simple yet intriguing one, why? What is it about the holidays that has sent people to such a desperate and tragic act? Does anyone understand this, because to be honest, it boggles me completely. These last few days with my family and just absorbing the beuaty of the air around me has given me nothing but the positive vibes to keep my head up and march onward. So why do so many turn to this false answer? This act of sadness, tragedy and cowardess.

This'll be short but sweet. I was listening to a news report that went like this and I quote "The parents who built homemade cages to keep there kids in have obused some of there 11 adopted children." No shit really. I just figured kids liked being kept in make shift wooden cages. You know where when they rub up against the bar it splinters off into there spleen, and you know the bleeding won't stop. It's just good times. Why the hell are people so stupid, just answer me this please.

New rules 25#
New rule, everyone has to stop pretending Woody Allen movies don't completely suck. Hollywood stars must stop pretending that it's an honor to appear in his unwatchable, recycled tripe, and critics have to stop pretending that a tiny old jew could be scoring with Tea Leoni and Helen Hunt. Somebody contact wardrobe---the emperor has no clothes.
New rule, stop brining out DVDs so soon. I'm still ignoring you in the theater.

We Are All Gonna Die
For centuries people have put forward ideas about the "End of Days", "Armageddon", The "Apocalypse". Call it what you will, evey society dating from the ealiest humanity have all had a concept of the coming of the end for all life. In this time of war and destruction many believe it to be now, but if one reflects they had many similar ideas back in the forties during this crazy thing call World War 2. This was a time of much greater horror and destruction then we have now, it's just more people are aware of it. But maybe I'm being ignorant, maybe we really are on the cusp of death and soon the skies will turn a shade of black velvet. Maybe soon our oceans and rivers will boil over and the beast of seven heads and ten horns will rise from the ocean. In the end the way I see it is, every society talks of it and they all agree on certain points, those being the destruction of the enviorment, natural disaster on mass scale, war. These three things are the ideas that appear most often in writings of the end of days. WE are currently in a time where all these things are becoming evident. For us in the US we only months ago saw the fury of hurricane Katrina, and for those over seas who don't know can look it up if your at all curious. Some blame this on the sin of humanity. Christian zealots like Pat Robertson say things like God let it happen. Now I'm not religious by any means, but I suppose this answers a question I've had for quite sometime "If he's there, what's the nature of God?" and now I know.... He's a prick. He let it a happen, a prick wow. I had heard good things but apparently not. In all seriousness though, do you really think we're that close to seeing our end. The Mayans sure seem to think so. Here's an interesting little factoid for you, according to the Mayan calendar the world will end on December 23 2012 if I'm not mistaken. Appaerently they think the end is near, what do you think? Is all our world on the brink of total destruction or is this all just one big religous, hocus pocus, boggey man show to keep us pure and kind and going to church.

New rule #24
New rule, Political conventions are important, and therefore they deserve to be broadcast and veiwed in their entirety. You can't call everyone in washington morons if you don't know exactly what makes them morons.
The comventional wisdom about conventions is that they're no longer worthy of our attetion because they're too "Produced" and there's no "drama". You want drama? hitch a ride home with Ted Kennedy. WE're picking presidents here, not the last comic standing. The media treats these conventions like pointless interruptions of their real job, which seems to be comvering LA's latest celebrity murder trial. No surprises, no excitement. Hey, you know what's exciting? It's exciting when politicians get drunk with power because people aren't keeping an eye on them. No one expected we'd retaliate foe 9/11 by attacking.... Iraq! WHoo, unpredictable, exciting!
And the reason the conventions are so "Produced: is because if they weren't, the networks wouldn't air them at all. To me, the sight of John Kerry rushing through his 2004 acceptance speech in a cold sweat so that he wouldn't go overtime and force veiwers to miss the first 2 minutes of Elimidate was one of the saddest moments in the history of democracy. The man is laying out his plan for ruling the globe, and we're treating him like it's audition night at the improv and he just got the light.
I'm not saying everyone has to pore over issues and read everything that's out there---We can't even get our president to do that. But the conventions are one of the only times when the election isn't reduced to sound bites and attack ads, when you can get to know these people a little. It's not exciting enough just to hear Teresa Heinz Kerry? SOrry, next time we''l get Justin Timberlake to whip out her tit.
Maybe the conventions aren't boring; maybe it's the people who don't participate in their own society who are boring. Once every 4 years, the two parties put on a pageant for you: "These are our faces; these are our voices; this is our vision of America's future." You'd think that would be a little more interesting than reruns of Yes, Dear.

Truth is, different is good. Lots of things are different and that's what makes this world better true. But at the same token, we have pushed this generation too much on the idea of different instead of better. That nothing is better it's just different. No not always sometimes things are better. Democracy is better then Ohtacracy and Theocracy. Freedom of speech, better. Freedom of press, better. Freedom of assembly, better. Free appliances with large purcahses, better. The point I'm trying to make here is don't veiw the world as a perfect place cause it's not. There are alot of other places out there that have a problems, and ways in which are not better, they are worse then ours, and trust me, most of these people wish they could have what we take advantage of. In August, the people of Iraq risked life and limb to send a message of great power: America, get out of our country. And also, we want the priviledges that you take for granted. America it is time to reexamine what our values are anymore. I've seen people in this country selling away these precious rights we have so they can "feel" safer. That's right people, we are actually not any safer now then we were before 9/11, according to recent safety reports issued by board of airport saftey. We need to stop this process of self destruction before we end up like any other totalitarian nation.

Why they hate us
I'm sure lot's of people know America isn't exactly the most popular nation. Lot's of people hate us and there not all wrong. And they all don't live in the middle east. I'll give you an example just from this hemisphere. Do any of you know what plan colombia is----Well you vet the first twelve CDs for a penny. Seriously, it's a massive deforestation project we have going on in the country of Columbia, why are we doing it? because htere are some plants down there that are evil. how do we know there evil? Well they don't have "Brystl meyer", "Squib", "Eli Lilly", or "Phyzer" written on them. And I will say this if cocaine gave you an erection instead of take it away, not only would it be legal but Bob Dole would do ads for it. Lots of people hate us, because we are selfish and glutton us and there not entirely wrong about that. We are gluttons, we shop with fork lifts, we eat giant food off of giant plates. We have a holiday where stuff food into other food. Plus, by the way, Thanksgiving really is typical of how we think of thrid world indigeionus people, celebrating the one good night we ever had with the indians. It's like a date rapist saying "You know, let's focus on the nice dinner we had earlier in the evening." I know it's rediculous but it's the truth. We are a greedy people, just look at corporate america. We can't stop stealing from each other let alone what we take from other countries.

I would like to say I am in no way responsible for righting this, I just find it prevelant to my own life that I put this up for discusion. See my comments at the bottom.
This is a tribute to the nice guys. The nice guys that finish last, that never become more than friends, that endure hours of whining and bitching about what ******** guys are, while disproving the very point. This is dedicated to those guys who always provide a shoulder to lean on but restrain themselves to tentative hugs, those guys who hold open doors and give reassuring pats on the back and sit patiently outside the changing room at department stores. This is in honor of the guys that obligingly reiterate how cute/beautiful/smart/funny/sexy their female friends are at the appropriate moment, because they know most girls need that litany of support. This is in honor of the guys with open minds, with laid-back attitudes, with honest concern. This is in honor of the guys who respect a girl’s every facet, from her privacy to her theology to her clothing style.
This is for the guys who escort their drunk, bewildered female friends back from parties and never take advantage once they’re at her door, for the guys who accompany girls to bars as buffers against the rest of the creepy male population, for the guys who know a girl is fishing for compliments but give them out anyway, for the guys who always play by the rules in a game where the rules favor cheaters, for the guys who are accredited as boyfriend material but somehow don’t end up being boyfriends, for all the nice guys who are overlooked, underestimated, and unappreciated, for all the nice guys who are manipulated, misled, and unjustly abandoned, this is for you.
This is for that time she left 40 urgent messages on your cell phone, and when you called her back, she spent three hours painstakingly dissecting two sentences her boyfriend said to her over dinner. And even though you thought her boyfriend was a chump and a jerk, you assured her that it was all ok and she shouldn’t worry about it. This is for that time she interrupted the best killing spree you’d ever orchestrated in GTA3 to rant about a rumor that romantically linked her and the guy she thinks is the most repulsive person in the world. And even though you thought it was immature and you had nothing against the guy, you paused the game for two hours and helped her concoct a counter-rumor to spread around the floor. This is also for that time she didn’t have a date, so after numerous vows that there was nothing “serious” between the two of you, she dragged you to a party where you knew nobody, the beer was awful, and she flirted shamelessly with you, justifying each fit of reckless teasing by announcing to everyone: “oh, but we’re just friends!” And even though you were invited purely as a symbolic warm body for her ego, you went anyways. Because you’re nice like that.
The nice guys don’t often get credit where credit is due. And perhaps more disturbing, the nice guys don’t seem to get laid as often as they should. And I wish I could logically explain this trend, but I can’t. From what I have observed on campus and what I have learned from talking to friends at other schools and in the workplace, the only conclusion I can form is that many girls are just illogical, manipulative bitches. Many of them claim they just want to date a nice guy, but when presented with such a specimen, they say irrational, confusing things such as “oh, he’s too nice to date” or “he would be a good boyfriend but he’s not for me” or “he already puts up with so much from me, I couldn’t possibly ask him out!” or the most frustrating of all: “no, it would ruin our friendship.” Yet, they continue to lament the lack of datable men in the world, and they expect their too-nice-to-date male friends to sympathize and apologize for the men that are jerks. Sorry, guys, girls like that are beyond my ability to fathom. I can’t figure out why the connection breaks down between what they say (I want a nice guy!) and what they do (I’m going to sleep with this complete *** now!). But one thing I can do, is say that the nice-guy-finishes-last phenomenon doesn’t last forever. There are definitely many girls who grow out of that train of thought and realize they should be dating the nice guys, not taking them for granted. The tricky part is finding those girls, and even trickier, finding the ones that are single.
So, until those girls are found, I propose a toast to all the nice guys. You know who you are, and I know you’re sick of hearing yourself described as ubiquitously nice. But the truth of the matter is, the world needs your patience in the department store, your holding open of doors, your party escorting services, your propensity to be a sucker for a pretty smile. For all the crazy, inane, absurd things you tolerate, for all the situations where you are the faceless, nameless hero, my accolades, my acknowledgement, and my gratitude go out to you. You do have credibility in this society, and your well deserved vindication is coming.
I personally find it is more of a self destruction thing for the girls I see around me. No matter how I may plead to the other, they seek out guys I know to total dirt bags. It lasts a few weeks, then thye come to me crying, saying how I was right all along. I know I shouldn't be as kind of easy as I am toward them, but something about those tear filled eyes effects me in a deeper way then I could describe to you here. Despite the fact that this is a thankless and rewardless position, I find that the world needs others like myself to over see the misguided youth. One who comforts and provides words of wisdom in times of darkness. One who protects the defenseless. We never recieve our just desserts, but so long as I feel as I've made the difference in the life of some young girl, I will continue to play out this role and help set them on the path of the true and proud. In the end, I am over looked and will probably remain as such for the remainder of my teenage life, but again, I have made a difference so I can rest at peace knowing this. I feel a sense of pride in this fact and it keeps me going in my lonly trek. I just hope to inspire fellow nice guys to continue your ways and realize you play a vital role in tis world, one that should not be take lightly. Remember, if your just friends, it means you have a deeper impact in there lives then any slime ball guy they may choose before you. Keep this in your thoughts as she cries to you about her troubles and know that you have made a life easier and in a way you have betterd youself.
