    Eh he isn't the only one who needs to apologize for his absence.
    I do too, because i've been off for an awfully long time. I know i had exams and stuff but that doesn't justify anything
    Sorry guys ^^

    Life is experience... good and bad...

    A fool never learns from experience, the genius learns painful truths from the experience of others (and avoids the pain themselves).

    Best of luck putting your life back together. Smile

    This is very bad advice, but think about the implications.

    There once was a boy who wanted a bike. He prayed every night, he worked hard, he respected and obeyed his parents... he did everything right.
    No bike.

    Then he realised how religion works.
    He stole a bike and went to church to get forgiveness.

    He realised nice people finish last.

    You could reply that virtue is its own reward, and that knowing he has stolen the bike would mean he will not enjoy using it and he will live in fear of getting caught... and if caught the result will be a reputation that will lead him down a bad path.

    The secret to life perhaps is realising... it is just a bike and it is not worth stealing. If you want it so bad... then work for it and earn the money to buy it yourself. You will likely enjoy riding it more.

    I know what work is i worked for my food from 11 to about 19 years.

    Then he realised how religion works.
    He stole a bike and went to church to get forgiveness.
    I am an atheist.My mistakes ,or sins if like, are my own there is no forgiveness no heavenly reward of hellish eternal damnation.

    He realised nice people finish last.
    Appearing to be a nice guy or a bad gay can create to others an image that can damage you in the long run.

    You could reply that virtue is its own reward, and that knowing he has stolen the bike would mean he will not enjoy using it and he will live in fear of getting caught... and if caught the result will be a reputation that will lead him down a bad path.
    I am not a thief i have my on code of honor.

    What i meant was that because a have no vice i can live with little money.
    I have nothing to lose because i own nobody nothing an i am a loner so i can start any business or other ,legit, thing without being accountable to anyone.
    At this pint in life i still am deciding with way to go.

    I don't wish to sound patronising or sound like I am telling you what to do.

    I have friends who have tried to do the right thing all their lives and are now thinking that might have been a mistake.

    I am an athiest too and think what if there is no heaven and hell or an afterlife, that death is darkness and nothing... everything you are becomes rotting meat in a grave or a small pile of ash.

    Sometimes I think by taking the right path, the good path, that I have missed out on a more interesting path.

    I have always been interested in military weapons and equipment but I had learned enough about war by the time I was 18 to know war is not "fun" and it is not fair. Friends and innocent people will get killed and often to no purpose and at the end of it the people you are supposed to be doing it for might not approve of the war you risked your life fighting. Soldiers often get the blame for the wars created by politicians.

    It is really about choices. We want to make good choices but often we learn more and potentially gain more by making what appear to be the wrong choices.

    Life is a gamble, look at the potential gains and the potential for loss.
    A game known in the west as Russian roulette is a good example where risking death for excitement is clearly the act of a desperate man. The irony is that the main Russian sidearm that was a revolver was the Nagant Gas Seal revolver of 1895 didn't have a cylinder that could be spun around like a roulette wheel so playing Russian roulette you would actually need an American style revolver to play. (Another fact against Russian roulette being a real Russian game is that the Nagant revolver has 7 chambers for rounds whereas Russian roulette is supposed to offer a one in six chance of death).

    I'll shut up now, but would like to wish you the best of luck.

    My religion says even atheists are noble; you have proven that
    Thanks. Smile
