This thread was destined for derailment from the get go. You started a thread that got people to put up pictures and called out one of the few female members of the forum to put up a picture. There was also intrigue and mystery thrown around when the idea got out that this forum member happened to be quite attractive. I'm just glad that people have been respectful and that the conversation has derailed into the area of fighting styles and martial arts rather than several other vulgar, name calling (i.e. you is ugly!!!), or hurtful possibilities.

But then, I suppose that just shows how much faith I have in humanity (even the internet dwelling kind). But I suppose part of that is to be expected because the internet usually makes it far easier to be harsh.

Using a weapon you are getting from a game = Fuck I just wish the tool scale was high enough to rate you, unfortunately it isn't. So now I am currently deciding what scale you actually fit into.

So are you not sure whether you should thank him or are you not sure whether you appreciate the comment?

Yeah, using the words intrigue and mystery made it a little over the top, but was it really worthy of a questionmarkthanks? Razz

That's what seemed to be going around. BTW, if it helps, I'm not inserting my personal opinions into those comments. I don't have an opinion as to whether or not The_Angel is attractive, but I am basing my comments on earlier posts in this thread such as:

Do you feel awkward judging or rating someone who is a bit younger than you?

I'd feel awkward judging or rating anyone regardless of the age. That and there are so many other factors that go into giving someone a "rating" that are not dependent on aesthetics/beauty. Most of those factors aren't going to brought out by a picture or toneless words. A huge factor for understanding another person and thereby figuring out whether or not they are similar to you in a way that would make them a better candidate for a friend would be how they act, what they value, etc. Those kinds of things can only truly be discerned through talking to someone and observing his/her body language and really listening to what they say and how they say it. The words that a person chooses can be incredibly telling, as can what they say, and how they say it, but now I'm just reiterating former points.

Which leads to my biggest problem with the internet: it allows for people to get together and connect as they never have before but it also eliminates much of what makes connecting with other people so incredibly interesting and valuable. Words don't mean that much. More often than not, it is how one says those words and the actions one chooses to back up those words that make the words have meaning. But, that's how human evolution has left us - especially since face to face vocal and physical communication was the only option available to people for such a long time... but I'll start rambling now.

Recap: judging anyone is weird... I try to avoid it, or at least moderate my judgments.

The internet strips most of communication as it is normally understood.

Lastly, judging someone on the internet is a little odd because of all that gets lost in translation to use a cliche.

Stop being real and deep Aqua. Superficial rating based purely on looks please.

We all know that you can't really get to know someone until you meet them. That's why people have fantasies. Even if you've never met Angelina Jolie - you think she's hot. If not her, some Mila Kunis, Jennifer Anniston - whatever. People are shallow. People judge people based on looks, even if people will later re-evaluate their opinion of them based on personality, chemistry, intelligence, attitude etc.

Everyone judges a book by it's cover. Isn't it you who's talks about evolution and its relation, mainly to trying to advance as a species? Well judging stuff does that. If a lion came up to you and you didn't judge it well, you're dead. If you though, well that girl has a nice body - she's probably better able to reproduce in that she can bear a child better, has enough nutrition to feed the baby etc etc.

But really I don't care, nor do I want to force you into doing something you don't want to do...

You know, I was half expecting Dragonheart to say "Tits or gtfo" when Angel first posted up her picture. I'm pretty sure I was quite close, as well, considering the response he made to her first picture...

Not important, really, just speaking what's on my mind.

I guess Jay doesn't believe that people can be anti-sexual i.e. not attracted to either sex. It seems unlikely.

Well that's because he doesn't understand people outside of normal standardized society. Psychology doesn't cover that, I don't think...

Psychologically speaking, everyone seeks a "mate". Even if mating with such a mate is impossible, the seeking is still there, the attraction still occurs.

Actually, psychology does deal with the abnormal... but that would be "Abnormal Psychology"
But it's the same way with philosophy - they're only concerned with things that they can easily talk about/classify. At least, when constructing rules based on morals and ethics and all that other stuff, philosophy is usually only concerned with people who will be able to understand the logic that leads to the moral decision... otherwise you'd have to make several different exceptions and the point of rules is not to make exceptions but to make something that can't or at least shouldn't be broken.

Your lyric as your signature is definitely a Tool lyric - from their 10,000 Days CD. I think it might be the track Rosetta Stoned, but not sure.
