What do you think is the difference between knowing that someone could be around the corner with a gun, going to kill you.
And actually having someone step out of that corner with a gun aimed at your head, going to kill you?

Well, if I KNOW someone is around the corner waiting to kill me, I will choose a different direction.  :grin:

If someone actually steps out in front of me with a gun, I will fucking take him down, no questions asked, until the autopsy is performed. 

I am woman.  Hear me roar.  :grin:

Don't deny the possibility. If you do, then you'll freak out when it happens, freeze up, and get shot through the head. Always be in the now, letting everything amaze you and nothing surprise you, able to react quickly and smartly in any situation.

If you know they're going to be around the corner with a gun ready to kill you, you will go a different way like Frog said, or you will let them kill you because you want to die.

Now if they actually "step out of that corner with a gun aimed at your head" and are ready to kill you, you didn't KNOW that they were going to do that. Or you did, and you are ready to fight them to the death or are ready to die yourself.

the mindset would be different I would think as well as the actual physical situation you described.

but what does this have to do about progress or the lack thereof?

Annnnnnd I had a light saber and my friend was there and I said "you look like an indian" and he said "you look like satan" and he found a stick and a rock and he named the rock ooga booga and he named the stick Stick and we both thought that was pretty funny. We got eaten alive by mosquitos but didn't notice til the next day. I stepped on some glass while wading in the swamp and cut my foot open, didn't bother me til the next day either....yeah it was a good time, ended the night by buying some liquor for minors and drinking nips and going to he diner and eating chicken fingers, and then I went home and went to bed.---senior doobie

if you 'expect' or see it as a possibility that someone is around the corner with a gun, and someone actually is, the expectations will presume its right and voila, you got yourself a d? ja vu ?
:stoned:
If its no one there..  a relief ?  :smirk:

""but what does this have to do about progress or the lack thereof?""

read this thread again, again. still can not see no diferense, it is insane, im just, fuckit, my mind goes blank at trigger point, really can not se a differnce between knowing that someone could be around the corner with a gun, going to kill you.
And actually having someone step out of that corner with a gun aimed at your head, going to kill you?


its almost kinda like this is,.. MAN! i get to think it for 2 sek and then its all gone,... ah well, there is no hurry, living :wink:

*edit* even typing the one, and not the other, like writing this, and not what im not writing. i still dont se no diference, (and even writing that is against all and everythin) is like im lying to myself knowing it, but could that even work?

A is not B, I see A is A and not B,and B is B not A,  but thinking of the first as A and the alternative B, even though I am stupid, A is B. like wtf? have i gone what?

and yes, been thinking of that. seeing a psykiatrist something, just no hurry thats all  :smirk:
