Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/7/18 6:03pm Carmichael:

Psychopaths hate themselves. They enjoy the pain created from thinking about how much they hate themselves.

@Rand: Yup, this one has staying power
Avatar Wed. 3/7/18 6:06pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Avatar Wed. 3/7/18 6:17pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Ordinary People
  Wed. 3/7/18 6:19pm Israel:

There is always much to appreciate about your oeuvre and one can also say that when there are more than a few messages being transmitted at once, even a quality mind starts to crack under the pressure of simultaneous streams and while the net effect is much like "real life" in its cacophony and multiplicity the end result is a kind of attack and the loss of insight and wisdom.

Serenity was sacrificed at the very beginning.

For some of course there is finally a transmutation and an understanding while for others there are too many channels and one might say, noise, at which point coherence might bring relief.
