  • I see. You don't handle criticism that way when it is favorable or goes along with your extended accusatory twists. Your posts are long, seemingly full of documentary evidence, but the reasoning is manipulative and leaves out much. It's impossible for me to get a good picture on the basis ...

  • I've seen a big seizure once. Eventhough I was prepared for one through regular first aid training it was quite something to witness it in real life. A young bloke (around 20) was waiting for a traffic light on his bike. It was a big, busy and complicated junction. Suddenly ...

    Veterans


    Just about every day, I meet veterans who lie and exaggerate their accomplishments. They walk around with a huge sense of entitlement, like society owes them a blank check for killing people in illegal, unjust, and unconstitutional wars of aggression which put the country in greater danger.
