Off topic, and @Discord,
I see you're from St. James, Long Island (according to your Location). I used to sail into Stony Brook on my Hobie-cat all the time (when I was a kid - I'm from Mystic, across the sound). Beautiful town, miss those days dearly. Small world!

<quoted text>dude, are you, like, dying?
No woodtick I am not dying. I am healthy as they come as far as I know. Too many people I know and care about have died and are suffering or someone in their family is suffering and/or dying.. So I say again;
BS!!! I have learned from experience in the last 4 years, especially in the last 6-8 months that if there is a god he doesn't care. Waiting on god to help is nothing but a dead end and you will die before it happens. I have seen so many people suffer and prayed my @ss off to no avail. I would rather burn in hell when I am dead than watch people suffer when I am alive. There is no point to the suffering if your almighty god you claim can step in and change it. I see no point in the craziness of praying to someone that does not answer. Either he is there and does not listen or he just doesn't give a f#cking rats @ss!!! Sub, Chimney, Aura Mytha, ChromiuMan, Poly, Dogen, UC, and even the crazy little Dude,,, it has been fun and I have learnt a little from you all. Danfromsmithville I believe I learnt the best lesson from you in that don't let the little shyt on the internet get to you so bad which I did at first but later learned to let it go. Wishing all the best because praying sure does not get any damn results.

"It is interesting to contemplate a tangled bank, clothed with many plants of many kinds, with birds singing on the bushes, with various insects flitting about, and with worms crawling through the damp earth, and to reflect that these elaborately constructed forms, so different from each other, and dependent upon each other in so complex a manner, have all been produced by laws acting around us.....Thus, from the war of nature, from famine and death, the most exalted object which we are capable of conceiving, namely, the production of the higher animals, directly follows. There is grandeur in this view of life, with its several powers, having been originally breathed into a few forms or into one; and that, whilst this planet has gone circling on according to the fixed law of gravity, from so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being evolved."

Charles Darwin
Origin of the Species, first edition 1859

Its not sweet, but it is grand. No false promises of fairness or escape from suffering. That you have to achieve, and practice, on your own and with those you care about.

You would not undertone culture if it sat on your face and farted.
Culturally England is multicultural, you really have absolutely no idea do you?
I have been observing your ignorance, is British a language? atleast every one knows that English is a language, and that language originated in England, that is why they are solely English.

Nope not OK
It really does not matter how hard you stomp your foot
Parts of the English language were first spoken in England
Other parts of it were first spoken in various parts of Europe
Some of the older words were fist spoken in the middle east
And some of the newer words were first spoken in India, China etc.
And of course the country of England is still a multicultural society and has been for at least 2500 years, probably far, far more stretching back to before the last ice age.
The real problem here I that you do not know how to phrase you insults so they are not insults. What you need to do is earn an extra couple of years of education and then, with luck and hard work you can write exactly what you mean to write.
That is why you are an idiot. All languages had got that development, English is not an exception. And if you don't know, all those places in mainland Europe must learn English before they can understand unlike England.
