All I'm saying is that if, somehow, everyone on earth had the best sex of their life tonight, we'd have peace among nations and religions tomorrow.

I had to leave for a week and I miss the big orgy. Typical.

Is the world so sad and bad and definitely not rad?
The line that separates the world from underworld, the world mundane from the world noir is thin. You might very well walk on the edge the whole life without ever knowing... unless one of your toes happen to be a hair longer than allowed by the unwritten rules of the society.

You were hiking around USA, right? I believe you know the score then.

If anything it made me appreciate life much more than before.

Pain , vice, misery and insanity abounded and yet amongst their mire many a shining beacon of generosity, kindness and selflessness did I find from the most unthinkable sources in the darkest depths of my twisted brambled path.
The fear of death by man or beast gave the light of day and the warmth of shelter a new intensity.
The liberty of the silvine and the relative safety of the constructed on new meaning for my lost spirit.

It's solidified fermented lactic substance but kind of what I got from it, I guess!

Although mine wasn't even remotely as distant, it certainly wasn't shorter. I did not find good on my path, but wise, eternal and beautiful for sure, as well as lost the false kindness that worse than malice.

No IHOPs in Syria though.

Close enough. It is, after all, The INTERNATIONAL House of Pancakes .

Unlikely not...
Perhaps!
Who knows?
I am just another lost soul in this magnificent masquerade we all partake in.


I was not aware at the time I sought external trappings to fill the void brought on by youth, but the so called "malk-speech" presented by the writer/s of bloodlines presented a linguistic challenge for the use of synonyms and allegory: Something like a bastardized form of skaldic poetry presented in twenty first century English.

As for life lessons... those seem to be as varied and unique as the lives that experience them or something...!

I remember I mentioned not even touching the actual philosophical basis of Christianity (because it isn't necessary to analyze the worst case aka Christianity as an organized religion), I mean not concepts such as "compassion" or "forgiveness", but truly fundamental ones like "existence".

From all branches, Catholicism emphasizes this fundamental meaning the most, it's, roughly, more like "let's celebrate the unity / it's cool to be here", while the Orthodox is way too much focused on acceptance of misery and the Protestant on personal success. Such an irony, the most corrupt as an organization, the merriest by itself.

What's the most fun about it, it ultimately means that one does not need Christianity, more so, the religion itself, any kind of, to be with Christian god. I won't spoil it here, but in the case that someone's interested, will explain.

Another major philosophical flaw is negative self-definition, or defining yourself through the sins you're not, or the Devil in a word. It's impossible to define oneself this way accurately, or, strictly speaking, define at all. Prohibitory rules are either too permissive to work or too obstructive thus create unintended obstacles in adjacent areas and impossible to uphold realistically.
For example, the statement "I don't start my parties with with drugs as you do" speaks next to nothing about you without said another person, a sinner, not to say, "drugs" also need definition, and some of them, like caffeine or turkey (contains IMAO), could end up in the grey area. There's a ton of mental effort with very little result, not to say, instead of thinking what to do, you're spending time thinking about the suff that you weren't supposed to even think about to begin with. There are taboos, vices, sinners, grey areas and guilt when approaching them, a fine nutrient medium for hypocrisy.
If you want to be yourself, say or think how you do start parties, that will be a little more productive.

Of course, this flaw isnt exclusive to Christianity, every Abrahamic religion and the most of others also have the similar concept. An opposite example would be Buddhism, to its credit it use positive self-definition.
