I have embarked on testing some anger theories.

Are you just insane with anger!
Are you Really Pissed!!
Super Angry!!!
Totally Outraged!!!!
Offended to the power of infinity!!!!!
10, maybe 50 different kinds of UPSET!!!!!!

I'll kill myself, just for you... deal?



You would enjoy that wouldn't you?
Or would you...?

WOULD that satisfy you?
OR can you NOT be satisfied?

I was just joking about killing myself...
How would I maintain my precious blog if I were dead?

Did you know you could feel better about yourself and the
world if you take a look into some kind of anger management.

Yes, I'm provoking you! Let your anger take you!
The insurance companies will pay on the stroke you
give yourself! Come on get upset! Really upset!!!
Break your keyboard and kick your dog!!! Yeah...!!!
THATS IT! Stew in your anger!!!


My questions to you are:



Are you SURE this is worth being upset over?

Are you SURE about anything you're upset about?

Do your relationships suffer because you're SURE
about what you're upset about?


I am testing some theories on anger :)



Do we get angry out of an automated response?
Can someone actually stop an think about their
anger before they attack?

Can anger be turned into laughter before someone
explodes?

Let me know if you are offended...
by leaving a comment: I promise to leave them all up.

I know that your personal space is important...


It is easy enough to delete anything I have offended
you with, so I am positive I have done no permanent damage.

So please don't let your self get too upset over it...
Unless your a complete psycho that lives on the attention
others give you when you're steaming!


Here is how it works...


I spend a few minutes each day...
looking for blogs that fit a certain profile.

Then I post that which I know is hated by every person
on the net... a link to something completely unrelated.

Most people don't care but... if you are hurt in any way...

I am truly sorry for you. Even though I was the trigger
for your anger I have a theory that I'm not the only
person who triggers it in you on a consistent basis.

I am human and I know how it feels to be really outraged...
though I've gotten over it...

What is my motivation?


Well, I often wonder why we get so
upset when someone cuts us off in our car...
or when someone "invades our space".

These things are just part of everyday life...
It is the meaning we attach to those things
that make us upset..

Why are we as a society so angry?



We live in a time where we have a better "quality of life"
than any other time in the world.

Yet millions are just heated and upset...
over the tiniest things...

Something we easily could control
(we control who can post to our blogs and who can't)...

Something that we have power over
(delete is a great thing)...

Blog-Rage is just a simple example of a MUCH greater problem.



All I'm hoping to do is bring it to you're attention.

Sure you know about anger and you have heard it a million times...
What are you doing about it? Is being angry getting you what you want?

Are you part of the problem or part of the solution?

Have you been indoctrinated, by your peers with anger for netizens that act outside the bounds of your idea of proper netiquette?



The net represents our freedom... people are free to express
anywhere unless the person controlling that space
explicitly denies it. (access controls are a great thing)
So don't cry about it! Do something about it!

Do you even know why you're upset?



Are you that person who will get into an argument...
then forgets why the argument started?

Will this post to you precious blog matter when you are
on your death bed?

Still upset?



Please post why... I would love to know... So would my readers...
Are other posts here? read them...

Does your reason sound just as canned?
Does it sound just like everyone else's reason?

Perhaps we are all not that different... so similar in fact we
could learn to forgive the stupidity of others by seeing
that which is stupid in ourselves..

I love the circus!



Watching people flail about like clowns, because of their
rage, is so entertaining it brings me to tears laughing
at the thought of it...

(I know you have seen it too and laughed...)

I'm begging you... if you're still upset... tell us why.

Online activism? Root out those spewing intolerance
There are some things, many actually, that are more important than freedom of speech.

Energy & Asset Technology, Inc. (EGTY)
Current Price $0.10
================================

Recognize this undiscovered gem which is poised to jump!!

Please read the following Announcement in its Entierty and
Consider the Possibilities�
Watch this One to Trad,e!

Because, EGTY has secured the global rights to market
genetically enhanced fast growing, hard-wood trees!

EGTY trading volume is beginning to surge with landslide Announcement.
The value of this Stoc,k appears poised for growth! This one will not
remain on the ground floor for long.

KEEP READING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

===============
"BREAKING NEWS"
===============

-Energy and Asset Technology, Inc. (EGTY) owns a global license to market
the genetically enhanced Global Cedar growth trees, with plans to
REVOLUTIONIZE the forest-timber industry.

These newly enhanced Globa| Cedar trees require only 9-12 years of growth
before they can be harvested for lumber, whereas worldwide growth time for
lumber is 30-50 years.

Other than growing at an astonishing rate, the Global Cedar has a number
of other benefits. Its natural elements make it resistant to termites, and
the lack of oils and sap found in the wood make it resistant to forest fire,
ensuring higher returns on investments.
T
he wood is very lightweight and strong, lighter than Poplar and over twice
as strong as Balsa, which makes it great for construction. It also has
the unique ability to regrow itself from the stump, minimizing the land and
time to replant and develop new root systems.

Based on current resources and agreements, EGTY projects revenues of $140
Million with an approximate profit margin of 40% for each 9-year cycle. With
anticipated growth, EGTY is expected to challenge Deltic Timber Corp. during
its initial 9-year cycle.

Deltic Timber Corp. currently trades at over $38.00 a share with about $153
Million in revenues. As the reputation and demand for the Global Cedar tree
continues to grow around the world EGTY believes additional multi-million
dollar agreements will be forthcoming. The Global Cedar nursery has produced
about 100,000 infant plants and is developing a production growth target of
250,000 infant plants per month.

Energy and Asset Technology is currently in negotiations with land and business
owners in New Zealand, Greece and Malaysia regarding the purchase of their popular
and profitable fast growing infant tree plants. Inquiries from the governments of
Brazil and Ecuador are also being evaluated.

Conclusion:

The examples above show the Awesome, Earning Potential of little
known Companies That Explode onto Investor�s Radar Screens.
This s-t0ck will not be a Secret for long. Then You May Feel the Desire to Act Right
Now! And Please Watch This One Trade!!


GO EGTY!

YEAH!
Bike
Spiders
from
HELL

By Don TRUE - Copyright © 1993 - All Rights Reserved

Remember the Cottonwood 200 club ride last Sunday? The route went out sixty first street; down the big hill; through Dover and on to Council Grove. I was doing my civic and biking duty by being a Sag at the top of the big hill, just outside Dover. I was the guy handing you bananas and apples and refilling your water bottles. It's the Bananas that caused the real problem. I hadheard, that when bananas are shipped here from South America that sometimes tarantulas slip into the packing crates and make it all the way to market. And since the bike club buys bananas by the case for the hungry hoard of bikers, I think that's where the spider came from. As I was sitting there on the water jugs he must have creep silently and slowly out of the crate and into my rear jersey pockets. I just wish I would have seen him then.

As the last group of riders left the Sag, up rode my buddy Jim the "Animal".

"Come on Don, lets race into Dover for some power bars and granola." "Gee Jim," I replied, "How healthy. How about a sausage Biscuit with butter and cheese on it and a greasy old egg thrown on top?" And with that I jumped on my bike and got a 200 foot head start before he realized I had left. He may have been slow to catch onto me leaving, but he hammered on his pedals and caught me in about 10 seconds.

We were now racing downhill at about 35 mph when Jim yells over; "Stop pedaling and hold real still. A big brown ugly spider is crawling up your back."
Suddenly I could feel eight little legs making their way up my spine. I watched Jim slowly unfasten his Zefal frame pump, and gripping it like a tennis racket he proceeded to hit the spider with his best back hand top spin shot.

WHAP!

The pump made a dull thud of a sound as it hit me squarely across the back. I was thrown forward from the force and my chest was crushed against my Aero bars. This opened up some stitches from a previous accident. I could only moan and gasp for air as I swerved back and forth across the road.

The crafty spider had foreseen Jim's mighty blow and scurried up my back and now was perched on my left shoulder. In my peripheral vision, I could see a venomous hairy brown creature about three inches in diameter, clinging onto me for dear life. It had fangs about 1/2" long, and it lookedto me like poison venom was dripping profusely from them. Two little beady eyes looked back into mine, and I swear, I saw his twisted brown lips smile at me.

In a sudden move he leaped off my shoulder and two razor sharp pinchers claws caught my ear lobe and the spider dangled there. "JIMMMMM" I screamed as Jim took another back swing with his pump.

THONK!

Jim's last blow hit me right up side the head. For a few seconds I was seeing stars and a solar eclipse all at the same time. At 40 mph I started to pass out and ride off the road, but Jim made a desperate grab at me and managed to grasp the waist band on the back of my Lycra pants. He pulled open a 2 inch gap between my waist and the pants and a rather large SPIDER in distress dropped off my ear lobe and into my now openIn rapid fire succession Jim pummeled me on the rear with several blows from his Zefal. Seeing a 3" lump moving left and right under my shorts, Jim would react with a new blow each time it moved. As we continued speeding down the hill, I was becoming more afraid of my toothless crazed good buddy Jim than I was of the tarantula.

It was a quiet Sunday morning as we blazed past the Dover Baptist Church at the bottom of the hill. The Sunday service was just letting out. The Pastor, in his best robes, was standing on the front steps still shaking hands with his departing parishioners, who were now treated to the sight of a person in terror, screaming profanity at the top of his lungs, while a very large man, with no teeth, clad in pink lycra shorts, continued to beat him about the rear with a large blunt object, while riding bicycles down the street.

The spider finally had had enough of Jim's poundings, as I pulled my bike to the side of the road. He sank his venomous laden fangs into my flesh and I gave out a cry that would wake the dead. All 150 pairs of eyes from the Baptist congregation were now turned and riveted on me. In agony, I quickly pulled down my shorts to get the creature out. I screamed at Jim that my rear was on fire with burning pain. He abruptly grabbed his water bottle and proceeded to squirt me with his grape Gatorade on my now bare naked butt.

In the corner of my eye, I saw a small child run up to the pastor and I heard him say;

"Are those the Sinners that You are always preaching about?"

Lying beside the road in pain, each and every Baptist drove by and shook their heads. Several pointed Jim and me out to their children, as examples of a life gone bad.........

Interesting study; one must truly consider why we become angry over such insignificances in daily life. Once people understand WHY they become angry, perhaps it will help them to stem their anger.

I hope you will actually continue to read my blog, as I will be checking yours for more insightful comments.

Russ is amazingly insightful! At 19 he talks about society on a level I can really agree with.

His observations are sharp and well thought out...

He can see that the priorities set, on a social level, effect the paradigms the group owning those priorities put foremost in their mind.

Trully inspiring...

Not the rage machine I was hopping to solicit... but Damn good reading!

Again is a very nice person too.. :)

He actually is looking for people to link from his site to ad to his content..

His blog is fun. Though very eclectic...
In a pointless fun way... I mean that in a possitive way.

I especially like the gif of the girl walking away from the camera... sExY!

But alas he too is not outraged by my attempt to offend... perhaps I need to bump up the spamming feeling of my posts?

I try to see the cat in everything.
It's like trying to see the beauty, but cat is far more meaningful to me,
and it's less New Age.
