How to be a God
    #3461273 - 12/07/04 08:50 PM (12 years, 2 days ago)

I have piranhas as pets.. and i feel like, NO!! i AM their God. Here's why... i give them a place to live, i feed them, i clean their tank. i give them toys/plants/filters... etc. This makes me think that they think i am their only God. To make things less complicated of understanding what I am, when i feed them i grab a little guppy, close my fist and stick my closed fist in the tank. My piranhas begin to stare at my hand, and i slowly open it to an open palm and release the delicious treat hiding in my powerful fist. They attack it and rip it apart as i stand there, laughing outloud, "Muahaha..Muahahaha.."

Sometimes i wonder what they think when i walk in my room.  "OH yes god is here!!! i hope he drops some of that delicious worm stuff, that tastes swell!" or "I.. can't breath any.. longer.... need a 25-30 percent water change quick... acid level... is.. rising.. *cough* *cough*...hurry GOD..... !
Other than that stuff i like to have ceremonies of war in my fishtank... I will put a fish in the tank (not a feeder fish, but a medium size fish that cost a lot more than a guppy), if this fish can survive more than 10 minutes in my tank, i give myself the choice of thumbs up or thumbs down like ancient roman gladiator style.. If i feel the poor little guy gave a good fight and deserves to live i will scoop him out and put him in my other fish tank.. HE GETS TO LIVE ANOTHER DAY!!!! usually the next i feed him to the piranhas again and most likely he is ripped to shreds and is never heard of again :headbanger:, BUT he fought for his life in the 10 minutes and was granted freedom for an entire day. A WHOLE DAY OF PURE FREEDOM..

I also wonder if they think i am Good :sun: or Evil :satan:.. the way i see it is that i am Good God to them, but since we are both very evil creatures.. i am an Evil God. :fire: Get what im sayin? for example, Satan is  a very good father to his son. Satan gives him people to kill, dogs to  torture, babies to fry.. But other than being a GREAT father, hes in fact a pretty Evil person.. this is how i feel towards my fish.

Well, that is pretty much all i have to say right now. Dont ask me what made me write this post, i just felt the need to let anyone know that they can be a God to. I feel very powerful at the momemt and especially when i turn around and look at my fishies...  :crazy2:

I often wondered if pets I've had thought I was god, especially the little ones like hamsters. But since they were in a cage most of the time they would think I'm a shit god that trapped them in a boring cage forever, thats why I won't have hamsters anymore. The cats ands dog obviously not, because they see a lot more people, maybe we're all like a pantheon of gods to them. Vengeful god of wrath next door that shouts at him when he barks, kind tender god of food etc etc.

I doubt it with fish though, I don't know if its the same for all fish but we all know how forgetful goldfish are, they even forget to stop eating to the point of death, stupid creatures. I think fish are just simply not intelligent enough to have the vaguest notion of what a god is, and if they did they would forget it the minute you walked out of view.

I don't think animals have the concept of what "a god" is.

I think it's more like "Hey... if I sit up on my hind legs and bark three times, this person gives me food. This person also pets me... I like this person. I think I'll pay attention/follow them around more"  :smirk:

read the short story "sandkings" i can't remember who it's by, but it's about a guy who gets these bug-like things as pets, that build little civilizations and worship as a god and war between each other

it fuckin rocks and is wicked bizarre

Lived here 21 years and that's the first positive thing I've found out about my state.

What part of the state you hang in VirginMary?


--------------------
Born: 10/31/83, which makes me a Scorpio.

1) Scorpios are the most highly sexed of all the signs of the zodiac.
2) Scorpios are prone to excesses: booze, drugs, sex, bad puns, etc.
They usually exploit the weaknesses of others, who fall victim to
their capacity for total lust & sexual abberation.
3) Scorpios possess great intellectual curiosity & creative talent. They
think they are rebels & are arrogant, proud, conceited, and worth every
penny of it.

What do you bring to the table?

soemthing i read somewhere:

to paraphrase....

the difference between dogs and cats:

man gives dog food, shelter, love, spends time playing with the dog and picks up the dogs shit. dog thinks "man does all these great things for me, he must be god."

man gives cat food, shelter, love, spends time playing with the cat and picks up the cats shit. cat thinks "man does all these great things for me, I must be god."
