I agree. The cool quotient of "angst" gets me down; usually angst is just a nifty name for self-absorption and self-pity. We frequently need to re-position our perspectives. As bad as life sometimes seems, the truth is that most of us in America--and other civilized Western nations--are unreasonably fortunate. We could be living in a hut in Tibet, suffering from river blindness, right? Angst is a luxury found in privileged societies.

Mr. Lime's "Spider-Man costume" inflicted on me some angst.

Come on, where's the happiness?



I think people should be more optimistic than they are. Really.

Sorry, I just found the humor rather flaccid.



Nyuk, nyuk.

Well, you can't be too angstful (a word?) if you spend sunup to sundown slaving away for a few dollars a day at some job. The few times in my life I did have to work 60-80 hours a week, I was too tired to be depressed. Kind of ironic, to be rich enough to hate your life.

my parents go either way depending on their mood, which im sure is true of any parent. my parents are great when it comes to providing for me and i think i take for granted a lot that they do for me (i know mr. b, a banned word) but i really do appreciate it. there are certain things my parents do that i really dont like, such as never letting me hang out with my friends when i want to, but they usually make up for it later. my parents arent all bad and i like them a lot!

Danny, in request. Since I do have people on here that I know, I would rather not. Perhaps ask me through IM.

To paraphrase David Niven, Spidey didn't mind revealing his shortcomings.

True; and taking that into consideration, you have to admit putting that picture in the Internet took some balls.

Very small ones, at that.



But still, they're there, and that's what counts.

Back to the subject of misery and hate. I think everyone's life goal should be to be miserable. Then we'd all succeed very easily. Althought...that might make us happy...which would mean we actually failed our goal.



Well that's that, I'm done setting goals.

You guys are so dirty! Are me and jenni the only females on here? And that is mean talking like that, I should e-mail that guy all of your posts. I'm sure he would be pretty embarrased, and I don't see any of you strutting your stuff (although honestly, I REALLY would'nt want you to, at least in front of me can you say s-i-c-k???) The end.

He does, indeed, seem like a rather sensitive man.
