Although you sound like you're 12, at your age you should know better.

Nature has a way of cleaning the bottom of the gene pool.
If the kid had not died like this he would have died doing something similar.
You can't take the stupid out of a kids DNA
If Darwins laws were cleaning out the gene pool; you would not have lived till puberty. I am sure about that.

Same thing happened a few years ago in my hometown to a young man. Very tradgic. I had not heard of this game until then, but ever since I have been hearing about this more and more. I think education is the answer.

Just because my views differ from mainstream does not make them wrong.
Just as it does not make them right.
Everyone has opinions.
Mine are just a bit harsh and in your face.
Fact is if you really think about it I may be right on lots of things I post. The thing that upsets people is i do not care about other peoples feelings. I only care about myself, my wife,,y immediate family, and the few friends I allow myself to have. My motto is look out for #1 and screw the rest.
That's just how I roll.
this is why you have very few friends you selfish a-s-s-h-o-l-e.. & its not that dont allow yourself to have more it's that nobody wants to be your friend..hmmm I wonder why

Everyone please ignore Charter vol; he simply wants attention he will say anything to get a rise out of someone just so you will talk to him. Don't let him have the satisfaction. He isn't worth you time.

No no seriously. I believe if Darwin's law was in effect you would have been taken out a long time ago.

Your opinions are not only wrong they are rude and unwarranted in most cases. Please do us a big favor and do not try to explain yourself to us. It is painfully clear to all of us what the purpose of your posts is. I do feel sorry for your wife and kids though. Are your friends real or imaginary?? Because I can't see anyone spending time with a moderator that has such a negative outlook on life. So long and FUH-Q!!!!

You back again, I thought you had some nuts to support. I can tell by your posts that you are of lesser intelligence so I assume any women that you might be "sticking with" are dumb. Are you a bottom feeder??
