    Schadenfreude glee at "mates"/ex g/f,b/f's misfortune update via social media

    I know engaging in schadenfreude (taking pleasure in the misfortune of others) is a guilty pleasure and misanthropic mindset but I recently came across an unsought and unsolicited brief bio of a lad I knew in my teens.He was considered by the like-aged girls of Truro to be the most handsome chap of our,shared, age group- looking at this accolade congenitally and with particular reference paid to the depleted,moribund, gene pool from which he sprung it was something of a dubious honorific title.

    He really, really preened and adored the attention.He was said to have considerable talent as a footballer and was rumoured to have been considered for trials with soccer giants Plymouth Argyle (think Delaware's second tier NFL team level of shiteness North Atlantic cousins) knew this and had the most conceited, raging ego imaginable. He acted in a particularly spiteful,mean, two faced manner to all those around him.

    The last I'd heard of him he'd landed a menial- but considering the economic realities of being a teenager in one of England's most deprived counties- livable employment at his step father's/mothers new fuckbuddys business.

    He'd completely slipped my mind but learning of the fact that (1)he's still earning minimum wage in a job so skill-less an ape or illiterate, Indian peasant could/would/will render him redundant.(2) is still living with the bland, generic 4/10 girl he was dating at age 15 filled me with elation! I've never been promiscuous but such an arrogant, conceited filled prick being stuck at low single figures sexually including teenage bus stop dry humping trysts fills me with a feeling that everything in life finds a balance....Ying and Yang... beauty and the beast, the bullying hurtful "top boy" becomes the economically and psycho-sexually bereft looser
    They champion falsehood, support the butcher against the victim, the oppressor against the innocent child. May God mete them the punishment they deserve

    But have you considered his less than stellar economic situation etc might mean that he is no longer an arrogant, conceited filled prick?

    If true, it's a situation that would certainly not have changed, had he landed a well paid job from day 1.

    Hmm... I don't know but I hope he has remained a conceited prick but one who knows he is a pathetic, tragic in the classical sense, piece of social detritus.

    You only have to see the habitual posting of gifs of people getting hurt in the "Amusing pics" thread to know who the misanthropes are.

    So you were pissed off or jealous of someone when you were young and now feel better as you you think he has a shitty life. I'd remind you that in a hundred years we'll all be dead and none of this matters.

    I understand this concept...If you follow this path to its natural conclusion, for me you'd just start drinking,fucking,raising hell,lying,cheating,smoking crack, banging up skag and living literally for the moment because when youse a dead mutha fucker you did do not exist there is nothing and nothing in your life no matter how much you achieve, what country you proudly lead, what innovation or invention create it only exists for you and no matter what you do it will only exist now for you.Historical figures like Chairman Mao who altered reality billions of people wont exist when I'm dead because the human beings that surround me don't exist beyond now, wont have existed because reality is only real and in existence now, here, and for me.

    It could still matter. It could matter to a number of people. But it'll only matter if it's something... epic.

    ^we are all matter. Matter is neither created nor destroyed, it is just transformed.

    Everything matters... or is it nothing really matters?

    Heh...

    I believe that the 38th incarnation of Lama-Yogi-Brahman, Ani, Dob-dob belonging to the 1st order of angelic souls who paraded naked down Broadway in New York and handed out free donuts (to whomever carried a frown) said it best, when it once paused outside the Starbucks on 47th and said:

    Nothing and everything matters
    This duplexity is the universal form
    of all things.
    What goes up, must come down.
    What goes in, must come out.


    <his little rant was cut short as the multiple donuts and quart of coffee he had consumed just prior triggered an attack of the running shits.>

    ^ I want some of what mad dog's been smoking. It's got to be sticky and smell like skunk. That's some real deep philosophical matter that may or may not ever really matter.

    I'm not really real. Does this mean I can't possibly be...the fish. I'm more confused now than ever.

    You are the fish but we're all a fish when we choose to be fishy and that fishiness may (or may not) assist others in feeling their inner fish-stank.

    But,...fish - you're also elk, bear, eel, toad, microbe, etc.

    ^ From your link, hick...

    “What was so surprising to us was the discovery of how we can create matter directly from light using the technology that we have today,” said Rose. “As we are theorists we are now talking to others who can use our ideas to undertake this landmark experiment.”


    Of course, there will be the "transformation" argument...

    Yeah, elaborate or link, please.
    Actually, Katie's quote is wrong....ENERGY can neither be created nor destroyed, and I guess that's what your alluded-to challenge was about.

    Cogito ergo sum.

    ^law of conservation of mass says that matter is not created nor destroyed in a closed aystem. Basis of Dalton's atomic theory.

    Your quote abt energy is correct - 1st law of thermodynamics - energy is not created nor destroyed, but transferred or transformed. 2nd law is abt entropy.

    So we are both correct. Or both wrong. But does it really matter? How abt anti-matter?

    Nothing really matters... cue in Madonna's song...

    Or Love is all that matters, faithful and forever. Keeping us together, love is all we need... (an 80s song)

    Heh

    I am aware of that law....tell me, is an atomic bomb a closed system?
    Never mind.

    Not sure about Madonna...the phrase instantly recalls Freddie Mercury, for me.

    You speak for yourself, mate. I am happy where I am and am not going anywhere. Of course, if I was Scottish, I would have no incentive to cling to life.
