    Perhaps you should test your theory and drink some piss- because I used to hate beer too, but we eventually became great pals- and now, every time I order a tall glass of Blue Moon: It feels like Christmas. ^_^

    What annoys me is when people get tattoos all over, but then they complain about not being able to find a decent paying job.

    One of my exes was an amateur tattoo artist, she had them all over, but then she'd complain about wanting to "better herself," and I was like: THEN STOP COVERING YOURSELF IN TATTOOS, TAKE YOUR PIERCINGS OUT, QUIT THE RAINBOW HAIR, AND CLEAN YOURSELF UP- LOOK PRESENTABLE. NO EMPLOYER WANTS A CARTOON CHARACTER-LOOKING PUNK IN THEIR OFFICE- IT DOESN'T WORK THAT WAY.

    She would apply for office jobs, but then complain when she got rejected or no calls back- and I was like: You have a cupcake tattoo on your ankle, stars on your hands and forearms, rainbow hair, facial piercings, and you honestly expect to walk into an office interview and be taken seriously? I'm sorry hun, but that's not gonna happen- at least not around here.

    "That shouldn't matter"- AH TAH TAH TAH....you have much to learn honey: It's not what you want, it's what the COMPANY wants. Understand? That's how the fucking business world works. It's NEVER about you, it's all about the company's wants, the company's needs, the company's expectations, the company's plans- it's the company's way or GTFO.

    You want to join the company? Then you have to walk, talk, and dress like the company- because the business world is very sensitive and a stickler for office etiquette, corporate image, and things like that- you can't work in an office wearing a damn clown suit or looking like Tekashi 69- it doesn't work that way.

    She never got it.....I'd tell her over and over and over, but she'd just make it all about her, "I deserve the same chances everyone else gets!"- NOT IF YOU LOOK LIKE A DAMN RODEO CLOWN OR BISEXUAL GANG MEMBER!

    You can't cover yourself in tattoos, piercings, dye your hair like a rainbow, and then get shocked/offended when you have trouble finding a decent job- because you KNOW what an office employee looks like, you KNOW what a business man/woman looks like, so you should know what's expected of you before applying to a place like that- it's common sense.

    And when these rough-looking people talk about "bettering themselves," my first response is: Well, if you want to make more money then you have to look like somebody who does exactly that, and the last time I checked: Clowns and hippies aren't exactly what high-paying companies are looking for. You need to clean yourself up. You have to look the part too.

    Nope. That's not what I get out of Nihilism at all. Recognizing and believing that nothing we do, say, etc. truly matters is different from "not having any fight". Existence is meaningless and any meaning applied is based on personal perception and learned/taught perception, but that doesn't mean I don't want to enjoy muself while I'm here or that I won't stand up for things "that actually matter". Frankly, the fact that I believe it's all meaning applied to life is existential nonsense has made me more confrontational/open a person than I once was, but I'm also just as likely to quietly laugh at ignorant buffoonery because I simply don't see it as important enough to bother with.

    Ok, have fun with that.

    Clearly you can't see the end of your supposedly embraced philosophy. Run it all the way through and see how it works out for you.

    Couldn’t have said this better myself, literally. Glad to see I’m not the only person who is a nihilist in this way.
    Your clearly don’t understand what Nihilism is then, because it’s not really a philosphy, it’s an understanding. We don’t look at the universe and go “oh, boo hoo, theres no point in anything I’ll just give up!” It’s understanding that there is no actual value/that the values we humans have placed onto things are not real, and that they have no bearing onto the universe itself. There is no point to anything, but... that doesn’t mean that I can’t understand that, and try to enjoy my life while I am still here.

    My understanding of Nihilism is meaningless so it's ultimately unimportant if I truly understand it or not. I can call nihilism whatever I want and attach any meaning to it I wish to. It doesn't matter. Nothing is concrete.

    Holy shit, I think I just demonstrated Nihilism.

    Neither of you 2 are actually nihilists btw. A creature of needs and wants cannot ever truly be one.

    Philosophy is my jam. You guys don't want to tango with me in this subject.

    You laughed reading it, and I laughed writing it. Today- we're brothers. LOL

    Plus, I know I can't be the only person who looks at Tekashi 69 and goes: Yeah there's no damn way that guy's 100% straight- no way...

    "I don't f with old hoes, only new hoes!!"- Dude come on...remove the S from Scum gang and that's what he really wants- and if not: He definitely had me fooled...

    Then your parents must be the worst cooks ever. I get at least a week of leftovers on top of the most full I've ever been in my life every Thanksgiving.

    Zach Galifianakis sucked as the Joker in the Lego Batman movie. It should have been Steve Carell.

    Inflatable mattresses always suck.There are no good ones. Better off sleeping on the floor than on one of those.

    I just wish we'd have chicken instead of turkey. Turkey isn't as great as people make it out to be.

    Ah, but I already know what piss tastes like because I've drank beer ;) . For serious though, I've tried various different beers over the years and all that comes through to me is the bitterness, it just seems like something you have to "acquire a taste for", which isn't something I'm inclined to do when I rarely drink anymore as it is.
    There's a reason hand, throat and facial tattoos are known as Job-Stoppers, some tattoo artists even refuse to do them, either entirely or at their discretion (is the client already extensively tattooed, age, career etc.). It's a good gauge of whether someone's really considered their tattoos that they then go on to complain that they can't find a decent job because of them. Unless they're planning on going into a field where visible body art isn't an issue, or can just cover them up if needed, then they've got no one else to blame if their poorly thought out knuckle tats come back to bite them in the ass.

    Have you tried hard cider? I'm a fan of that too.

    Hornesbees, Angry Orchard, Reds, Woodchuck, Strongbow- All delicious hard ciders.

    When it comes to people riddled with tattoos, I met people like that at my college, and it blew me away because at college age your life has barely begun- you know? Especially your professional life.

    So I'd meet people riddled head to toe with tats and my first thought would be: You don't really expect them to call you back- do you? It doesn't matter where you go after graduation, you're gonna have a considerably tough time finding a decent paying job once you're out of here.

    It's like shooting yourself in the foot before a marathon- I don't understand what they expect to find while looking like that.

    One of the few bands that did.
    Unlike Disturbed and Five Finger Death Punch.
