I am most afraid of pain.

From our discussion in the society forum that sounds like a joke.

I'm afraid most of telling my fear.

So the problem was that your parents didn't beat you hard enough.

I am most afraid of things that affect your mind, like really creepy ambient music and sounds.
#UnbanTheMadman

"Some will sell their dreams for small desires
Or lose the race to rats
Get caught in ticking traps
And start to dream of somewhere
To relax their restless flight
Somewhere out of a memory of lighted streets on quiet nights..."

Are you taking future parenting lessons from me?

If your baby is being really around. Shake it really hard.

LOL, no.

Ok, here's the thing. Beating someone to force them to do something is a display of authority. I don't care how hard someone beats me; I will never obey authority if I don't want to and a beating will never be a disincentive for an action.

So it's not that I am not afraid of pain, per se. It's really that I am not afraid of authority.

However, I am afraid of what I would call "random pain" that serves no political purpose. For example, the main reason that I have not committed suicide via drowning is that I don't want to suffer.

He's not taking lessons from you. Ober likes making jokes about how he is trying to figure out if he can seduce me/force me to submit to him.

Interesting. So you really are anti-authoritarian. It wasn't just that the disincentive wasn't enough.

I'm not suicidal; I don't particularly care if I die as long as I don't suffer, if that makes sense. I'm glad that you don't want me to die though :p

No, I haven't committed suicide because I don't have an urge die yet. I don't have an urge to live either. I don't care if I die right now as long as I don't suffer.

Someone breaking into my house.

I experienced multiple break-ins as a child and that feeling of someone entering my "safe space" with the intent to vandalize, violate, and possibly hurt me and my family is overwhelming. I'm now a very light sleeper and keep a samurai sword by my bed.

You must have some sort of urge in life, otherwise why bother getting good grades in school and stuff?

So that I don't become homeless, suffer, and starve.

I guess you could say that I am afraid of suffering.

I keep a crowbar by my bed.

I can imagine how scary it would be for some guy to walk in and see you charging him with a samurai sword. He'd be like "Wtf?!"

Even a low paying job will allow you enough to pay for the bare necessities. Although I suppose a point could be made that low-paying jobs kind of suck so you might as well just attend college If you like the material your learning (computer science is interesting on its own merits. I'm eh on biology but its somewhat interesting).

Strippers and prostitutes make quite a bit of money :p.

From someone who knows, you don't suffer when you drown.
Rules of Mafia

1. Mestari is never third party.
2. If Mestari claims an intricate and page long TP role, he's telling the truth.
3. Mestari always jointly wins with the town.
3b. If he doesn't he's mafia.
3c. If he was mafia you wouldn't suspect him in the first place.
4. If you lynch Mestari you will lose because he will be the third party Doctor or some other townie power role.
5. DP1 lynches are good.
6. The answer is always no.

Actually, I did have a near-death drowning experience once.

It is true, not really much pain wise.

Though, mentally...
