Other times, I could be a Vulcan, for my lack of insanity.

You've posted "Me too!" in all its variations enough times, I should get to do it once.

Well you have told me that I have done it, so I get to tell you that you did it also, even if it is very obvious that you did it.

Why is the light red? I wanted a green light...


Or a UV lamp...

Or something other than your typical, run-of-the-mill red light.

Technically the conversation we are having does not exist because we are not actually saying anything, and I will use a blue light next time seeing as how my computer is covered in bright blue LED's and glowing blue fans.

I like how you two took up half a page talking to each other. That's so nice. It's like a little soap opera, or being there to read your text msgs on your phones. Makes me feel like I'm watching a play.

It is because there is a certain time of day when it is just me and her on... So we go back and forth in posts because nobody else is posting.

That's kinda creepy, idk.

I mean, since this is posted on a forum, it's obvious that everyone can see it, but it's still disconcerting to realize someone is following it.

I wrote that it started the second world war in my History coursework essay the other day (I thought of it before you posted it here). It's this belief that inspired this thread.

Has anybody ever heard of the phrase that:

Drinking Alcohol is fine as long as it is taken in moderation

Well its the same with how you support what you believe in. Even tohugh Patriotism, being Religious or being part of a group whether it be a group of friends or a clique like a Chav or Goth you are being indetified by what you believe in.

For Example you can be Canadian, Jewish and a Goth. Someone can find a reason to hate you in three ways:

You are Canadian
You are Jewish
You are a Goth

For someone to take offense at any of these they are narrow-minded and Racial and Prejudice. Instead of putting up with you they become extremist and wish to make you how they want you to be.


Being Moderately Patriotic can be a great thrill in sporting occasions and other times. But being overly Patriotic can lead to violence. As can being overly religious or even overly "Chav".

It is only when someone believes that their indentity is superior to others and believe this to the extreme is how wars often start.

I think pretty much everything can be good or bad, depending on the amount of it.

Take water for an example: water is good in moderation. If you drink too much water you will kill yourself.

Sleep still applies to this because it can be good or bad depending on the amount. If you sleep too much or too little, you feel tired in the morning.

That's not true.
Sleeping "too much" does NOT make you tired in the morning.
That's an old wives's tale used to guilt kids into sleeping less
and so having more time to do their chores.
