    Are you SELFISH???

    Are you a selfish person, and if you are is there anything REALLY wrong with it? After all, selfishness is a natural trait installed in us to help us survive as a race, it's only modern society which has given selfishness a bad name.

    I have to say that I am selfish, but that's not to say I am a bad bloke, I have a heart too gold for my own good and I have helped and done profitless favours for many people, but only because it has made me feel nice and warmed the cockles of my heart.

    Did I start this thread as an excuse to talk about myself again? Well i suppose that depends on just how deep you read into things, the subject actually came about after reading a chapter in a book written by Asias most sucessful business author - I read this chapter well over a month now so gawd knows why it's taken this long to discuss it.

    Anyway, my Sandra for example - I know deep down and even a little bit down that we are incompatible, but although I am selfish in that I will not sacrifice my life, friends or ambitions for her - I do want her and her family to have a good life and I will do my best to help her.

    Anyone see my post in Moogs thread about Britmaveric? Yeah, if I did have a kid I would not sacrifice it's life to save a jet full of 200 passengers I didn't know from Adam, and I don't think many would if they were truly honest with themselves.

    That said, could I give a kid the attention it needed? ...Probably not.

    So, have a San Miguel on me and join in me in discussing what it is to be selfish, is it really inhuman?

    Try to avoid jumping on the bandwaggon after the first 'clever' reply aimed at my fondness for San Mig or the state of my relationship; contribute to the fucking topic - I'm not that pissed, I am spelling everything ok.

    I'm back in Bangkok soon, and I feel ready to meet some of you buggers.

    Well maybe you can take her out for me while I go to the piss up and you'll find out.

    I'll need to at least speak with you on the phone beforehand.

    If this topic is about what I think its about.....

    Personally, I have always found that Scampy buys his round, despite what Blake 7 says.

    Though he does his mythology no good with dodgy-titled topics like this.

    It's nothing to do with that but I thankyou for pointing it out anyway as it is somewhat of a myth that I am a scrounger.

    No, it was actually inspired by the comtemplation having children and resenting it for anchoring me to a life where freedom and meeting Blake 7 in Bangkok for a drink would be a thing of the past.

    You won't take me up on the offer because deep down you know you're full of shit and for me to make such an offer I must know my woman very well. You seem to snub endless oppertunities to prove your not the idiot people accuse you of being by taking the easy option and wasting your time on fruitless gibberish.

    Only a fool takes satisfaction in causing upset to others and I have been equally foolish in the past - not for my honesty, but for taking the bait so to speak when those like you dangle it.

    I am often accused of being selfish by a woman who snuggles up to me because it makes her feel good, who calls me the pet name she does because she likes it and who wants me to marry her because it will please her family.

    Today I was told I was selfish because I had to ponder the hypothetical question as to weather or not I would donate one of my kidney's so she could live.

    I said I'd have to think about it and I did, I guess I could live with one kidney but I imagine I would not be able to get as shitfaced as I used to, which may actually be a good thing - so by that rationale perhaps I would be selfish for giving her a kidney because it would benefit MY health as well as my continued enjoyment of her company, so is that selfish - where do you draw the line?

    I asked her if she would give me one of her kidneys.

    "Of course" she replied tetchily.

    "Then you're a fool" I replied "Nobody needs three kidneys."

    You should have said yes immediately. They chances of you being a compatible donor are very slim anyway.

    If you've decided you're not compatable why are you even contemplating marrying her for fucks sake.
