    Does anyone else ever look at their post count, realize they have posted 3,337 times on this board, and wonder what the heck they said all those times?

    I lost 300 posts in The Great Crash.

    All of it was utter nonsense anyway.

    I started out on a Saab owners forum. My favourite Saab slogan was "Move Your Mind" Then I removed all the vowels (pesky things).

    Good point, forgot about that aspect of the Great Crash. I think I lost 2-300 in there too. Even more silliness. : I like to think I've said a few useful things over the years, and helped a couple people along the way.

    Star, if I could paint, or if I was in the financial position to commission a certain artist to do a surreal rendition of this photo I took of "The Vicious Attack Dog" .... I call "At Peace with the World" ....





    I'd love to have it done! Especially since Harlee "The Vicious Attack Dog" is now at rest! I would place the painting behind the Urn's of Kuma, Baby, and now Harlee's place will be between the two.

    Let's see how well it goes over here:

    WARNING: Do not read if you'd prefer your thread killing to be light-hearted and fun.

    We stumble through Life like blind mice. With a horrific lack of control over our own lives that is genuinely scary if we ever stop to think about. We fool ourselves into pretending we both can and do have control. We do this by going through our daily routine. We choose which shirt to put on in the morning. We choose which vehicle to purchase. We choose its color. We choose what to have for breakfast. In such ways, we delude ourselves into believing that we control our own lives.

    However, even in our daily routine, there is far less choice and control than we want to acknowledge. If your job requires a uniform, then no you don't get to control what you wear in the morning. If that job is one in an office, then you must wear a tie. You don't get to wear your favorite T-shirt for everyone to see. Fall behind on your car payment, and expect the repo man to take your choice away. Still need a car to get to work? Buy a less expensive, used model. Often you don't get the car you want nor the color either. Want to ride your Harley to work or on the weekend? Sorry, it's raining. And. Mother Nature doesn't care. Want breakfast? Sorry, you overslept. Your breakfast is now a cup of steaming hot coffee that you must somehow chug while running towards your front door. You have time for breakfast and want eggs? Sorry, all out of eggs. The Mrs. forgot to pick some up. Don't have a Mrs.? That's because the women you want don't share your feelings. Found someone special and want to stay married to her? Sorry, she didn't understand the concept that you have to work tons of hours in order to provide a good life for the both of you, with plenty of financial security. While you were busy working, she fell in love with your unemployed neighbor who is happy to listen to her problems and has plenty of time to share with her.

    Family friend stops by one rainy afternoon to pay back some money he owes your folks. He stays for literally a minute. Two days later, he dies in a freak accident involving an improperly secured cannister of fuel and a distracted, possibly drunk, driver. (Personal one I tossed in there.)

    You can make all the plans in the world. But loved ones could be gone in the blink of an eye. You could come back from vacation sick as a dog, take the day off when you're supposed to be back, have such a great reputation at work that your boss is completely understanding . . . Then get a call half an hour later saying that the main client has pulled all their accounts and 200 employees were literally laid off 5 minutes ago. Oh and by the way, you're one of them. (Another personal one.)

    I write fiction, and horror stories for a small group of loyal readers and fans on a site outside of CPF. I've written some incredible short stories, novels, and novellas. But none of the horrors I've ever thought up in my head can truly compete with the real horror of life that involves just how frighteningly little control we have over our own lives.
    Hard to get happy after that one!

    I've been going through a lot of crap in my life the last...well, the last few years really. I find myself wishing I had made better choices when I was younger, but that's not what happened. Now that I'm older, I just have to deal with it. Work is a total nightmare, but I won't go into that.

    As far as losing loved ones, I prefer to not think about it either, but sometimes it's forced upon you...my dad was very ill for the last few years of his life. It got so bad that I was actually relieved to see him go (within a few days of being a year ago), I had a hard time dealing with watching him suffer. It was my shoulders that all the responsibility rested on...my brothers weren't a whole lot of help, and that weight was heavy. I figured that when he passed, life would get a little easier to deal with...WRONG! Now I have to worry about my mom and step-dad. He has Alzheimer's, and she is losing her transplanted kidney. They are basically in the middle of a divorce, due mostly to his mental state...he functions pretty well, but makes horrible financial decisions, selling property and equipment and blowing through the money. And there are people in his life giving him bad advice, these people just happen to have their hands out, soaking him for whatever they can get, at the same time saying their motives are in the name of love, and he can't see what's happening. They're telling him my mom is out to get him, and is trying to poison him, etc, outrageous things that he would have seen right through just a few years ago. Now he buys into these ideas. This has put a lot of stress on my mom, which in turn, is causing more problems with the kidney and her health in general. So now I have to worry about them. At least my one younger brother is stepping up to help with that situation, but it doesn't stop the stress and worry in my life.

    I only mention these things to show my agreement with Monocrom...you really don't have a whole lot of control in life. You have to make the best of it, and try not to dwell on the bad things, but sometimes life has a way of kicking you right where it hurts.



    Now back to the regularly scheduled BS.

    Anybody seen Spiderman yet?

    LOL! I can't take much credit...the credit lies with Paintshop Pro. I'll have to mess with it and see if I can get the dog to look more like a dog. Then I might sign it.

    Don't you hate it when people . . . er, threads keep doing that?

    Maybe if I hit with a flashlight . . .

    Nope! I'll try poking it repeatedly with a stick. Oh great, now it's just starring at me! . . .

    Time to pull out the big guns! . . .

    . . . Nothing is working!

    I'll try waging a disapproving finger at it. Seems to work for Greta.

    Okay, still alive. Looks like this is going to take awhile . . .

    Damn! I'm building up quite a sweat. You guys check back in in a few hours.

    (as a side note: there's always an argument about the Alanis Morrisette song "Ironic". I've determined she's either a moron or a genius. The song is ironic only by the fact that it contains no examples of irony whatsoever. If she did this without realising it, she's a moron. If she did it on purpose, she's a genius)
