Those in the human race who are lazy, dishonest, unmotivated, drug addicts, drunks and unreliable want government to be strong so government can provide them a life they would never or could never provide for themselves by their own efforts. This thread is dedicated to them, and to keeping Govt. weak
I just wanted to make sure everyone knew that there was a really interesting and fun sight to webdiplomacy called vdiplomacy.net. It is a sight deticated to diplomacy variants, and I would lI've to see more players on it. So go check it out! www.vdiplomacy.net
No but really I mean it. I've been in an absurd number of imminent-threat-of-death situations in the past two years and overcome them all. I'm just incredibly calm all the time now and legitimately am not afraid to die.
Its almost like you are asking two different questions. Conceptually, I do not fear death. I am happy with my life, and if I were to die tomorrow, I would die happy. In that regard I do not fear death.
Yet, if some guy ran up to me with a gun and threatened to kill me, I would be afraid. that is just survival instinct.
I don't fear death (although the prospect of the painful moments that come in the time before quite a number of life ending scenarios is pretty scary), but if I found myself dying any time soon I'd be bloody annoyed.
But then being non religious I find comfort in death being an eternal oblivion (rather relaxing, no?) during which my efforts in life live on and expand through others. If I believed that life after death stuff that religious types go for it would be scary. The idea of my earth life becoming an ever smaller and insignificant part of my existence would scare the shite out of me and be amazingly depressing.
Meh. One of two things will happen. the wordl will cease to exist when I wake up because this life is actually just a dream, or I will just cease to exist as I am now, because even if a soul exists, it isn't the same as the entire person including their personality and awareness. So no, I'm not afraid to die. I'd rather continue to live because I enjoy this life, but wanting to do something isn't the same as being afraid of no longer getting to do it. I could just as easily ask a soda and candy junky if they are afraid of getting diabetes. Some may be, others may not.
Hey, though I'd just give this a shot, see if anyone would actually have this information? Does anyone know where (preferably on the internet or in an easily obtainable book) I could find the record of votes in the British parliament. I assume it wouldn't be too hard to find the votes of the past few years, but I'm looking for votes from 1801-1899. Any ideas? I'm working on my thesis, and having a little trouble. Thanks
