I do not condone cruelty to animals but I like to hit the old 'maki' when I'm mad, but this looks like its starting to go off topic so please I ask you, dont overdo it! or else!

It's not called cruelty where I'm from,it's called hunting. Please don't threaten me I've had enough of that today.

Your girlfriend broke up with you,probably won't be the last. Would you rather marry her have a couple of kids and then her suddenly leave you for an ugly dude? See,it could be worse.
Things happen to us that hurt,nothing will heal it fast,it just takes time to realize how much SHE will be missing out on.Her loss.

I know what you mean. My friend and former boss died last week and I attended the funeral on monday. She'd been fighting the Big C for a few years and finally wasn't able to keep saying 'nuts'.

She was an amazing woman who ran a primary school in a tiny Polish village. She allowed me a very loose rein to do theatre projects with the kids and we produced some beauties. I left the job because I felt I'd been there too long and me and the kids needed a break. Now I wish I'd stayed for one more semester...

Still, I didn't and I realise I have to assess my own work from what I learned through her generosity in trusting in me. If I want her to live on I need to use her inspiration in my work.

This is one depressing thread -- girlfriend left, hanging at dawn, a friend dead and squirrels shot on purpose.

Anyone got any anti-depressant topic?

Yep, my girlfriend left I found another and got married (or is that depressing as well ?), I'm not dead, never been hanged and I'm not a squirrel.

Oh, and each day I look in the mirror I ask "How can a person be so handsome with only one face?"

Oh, and best of all, each new day means I can read more posts on Fighting Arts (especially by ButterflyPalm)

Well, Richard Pryor died this past week. Normally, I would be sad at the passing of someone, but his comedy was so good...I am still laughing decades later. He turned his pain into some 'seriously funny' comedy that is still with me.

First sentence: me too.

Second: On a regular forum I could just lie and say "me too" but one never knows with you qi-sensitive guys and gals, so I won't

Congratulations!!! You have achieved Enlightenment without knowing it.

And Trevek, can I borrow that mirror you stole from Snow White's stepmother?; I need something miraculous to cheer me up after I found out that condemned criminals were hanged at dawn just so that they do not get to see the beginning of a new day. It seems in the old days the next day starts after dawn and not after midnight.

Also legally if a criminal is scheduled to be hanged on a certain day, hanging after dawn (the next day) would be a technical violation.

I've always wondered whether these people condemned to be hanged brush their teeth or shave on the morning of the execution; I mean what is the point? And can they sleep the night before and what thoughts or dreams they had?

Man, this is worse than squirrels being shot as a form of anger management.
