  • I have lots of friends that I have met and know quite well.

  • Just don't piss anyone off in that friend circle, the rest will come down on you and band-wagon on ya. V.T.L NiamC

  • I rather have my own peace and quiet

    Posted by: reece
  • I find it difficult to trust people. Actually, I find it impossible to trust people because of all the dishonesty in the past.

  • Like reece said, I really like the peace and quiet of just a few friends while mainly being by myself!

  • I may not have that many friends in real life, but I have a few great friends online. They don't judge and are willing to talk. :) I can be me on the Internet.

I really don't know who my friends are: minimum 5 maximum 15
reece says2014-07-30T23:54:14.4548158-05:00
I have like 15 someday's and 0 other days when i feel like it.
mishapqueen says2014-07-30T23:54:48.3112708-05:00
Ahh, temporary friends. :)
reece says2014-07-30T23:56:11.4882664-05:00
Nope :P
mishapqueen says2014-07-30T23:57:02.8912549-05:00
Then explain your previous comment, please. :)
reece says2014-07-31T00:01:16.8935582-05:00
Those are friends that I've been with for years but sometimes i don't wanna hang out with them.
Krieg01 says2014-07-31T00:01:48.0335383-05:00
I don't have many friends because as PetersSmith said I find it impossible to trust people and I don't even let my 'Friends' into my house most of the time!
mishapqueen says2014-07-31T00:02:30.1387480-05:00
Reece, that makes sense. :)
reece says2014-07-31T00:06:00.7115974-05:00
@mishapqueen plus they smoke a lot of pot, it's alright if you do it now and then but they do it like almost every day.It just gets depressing.
mishapqueen says2014-07-31T00:06:40.8414575-05:00
I see. That makes total sense then.
reece says2014-07-31T00:12:12.5603482-05:00
@mishapqueen haha yup.
mishapqueen says2014-07-31T00:15:30.2770865-05:00
I wouldn't want to hang around them much either.
reece says2014-07-31T00:18:33.9826865-05:00
@mishapqueen their really cool people but it's just how much weed they have.Like the other month i hanged out with them, they bought a hundy bag.
mishapqueen says2014-07-31T00:20:33.7667866-05:00
I understand. I was saying I wouldn't enjoy hanging out with that type of smoking going on all the time either.
reece says2014-07-31T00:23:45.8844811-05:00
@mishapqueen but it's alright to have it sometimes. Don't you agree?
mishapqueen says2014-07-31T00:25:02.2040130-05:00
I don't judge people who do, but I think it's dangerous, and I would personally never do it. But if you do it, that is between you and your parents.
reece says2014-07-31T00:28:14.9272549-05:00
Even though there hasn't been any reported deaths of it. I'm an adult in New Zealand.
mishapqueen says2014-07-31T00:30:06.4843501-05:00
I'm talking about it's addictive qualities. Reece, smoking pot is your choice and it's not my business whether you do it or not. You are free to make your own choices. I have made a personal decision to avoid it, that's all.
reece says2014-07-31T00:35:54.5276932-05:00
If you start doing it everyday, that's when you get addicted.I respect your choice.
mishapqueen says2014-07-31T00:36:23.7713364-05:00
And I respect yours. :)
reece says2014-07-31T00:36:36.7348533-05:00
You just need to be responsible with it.
mishapqueen says2014-07-31T00:38:19.3608784-05:00
I'm the type to struggle with that the most, so I need to be extra careful.
reece says2014-07-31T00:41:56.4390529-05:00
And don't start doing it if you have personal problems because they could push you over the edge.
mishapqueen says2014-07-31T00:44:29.1815902-05:00
Yeah, I tend to be the type of person who gets hyper focused on one thing almost to the point of obsession, and then gets bored with it quickly. I fight it all the time. I have some personal problems, but at the moment, nothing is serious. I just don't want to expose myself to something with that type of potential. It would ruin my life. So I'm being responsible in avoiding it. :)
reece says2014-07-31T00:50:48.0660763-05:00
It wouldn't be responsible if you didn't seek your own limits while you're still young.
mishapqueen says2014-07-31T00:53:26.4559222-05:00
There's some things I'd rather not learn in the school of hard knocks.
reece says2014-07-31T01:00:56.7716040-05:00
What you learn becomes who you are. The more you learn shows others how further experienced you are in life.
mishapqueen says2014-07-31T01:01:46.7406461-05:00
Drugs are not necessary for that.
reece says2014-07-31T01:03:44.2139171-05:00
Drugs are part of human nature E.g. DMT
mishapqueen says2014-07-31T01:04:35.8366334-05:00
And what if they are?
reece says2014-07-31T01:07:19.0165109-05:00
It shows how experienced you are in life. In the realms of responsibility that is.
Sfaulkner says2014-07-31T01:08:52.2245251-05:00
It took me a while to find out what irl meant, I feel old but I'm not.
mishapqueen says2014-07-31T09:09:33.3262242-05:00
Reece, what do you mean by "responsible"?
reece says2014-07-31T09:15:50.1124194-05:00
@mishapqueen having control over yourself.
mishapqueen says2014-07-31T09:17:41.1572286-05:00
Would not avoiding something that I know could be dangerous be responsible?
reece says2014-07-31T09:22:08.4472756-05:00
You don't know unless you've tried it, like caffeine.
mishapqueen says2014-07-31T09:28:14.8258143-05:00
Reece, I have good friends who started out with pot, and then moved to more high powered stuff. It completely ruined their lives. I don't agree that it's responsible to do it. Besides, I have no real desire to start. I don't judge you, but even if it is irresponsible, I won't try the stuff. My conscience and my heart says not to. Even if not trying pot is irresponsible, I don't care. I feel I am being responsible by resisting trying it. You are welcome to the stuff, but I'm not doing it. I'm young, I have a lot of things I want to do, I don't want to ruin my life by unnecessarily exposing myself to an addiction.
reece says2014-07-31T09:37:17.2729215-05:00
That's why i placed the example of caffeine in my comment. They say weed is a gateway drug but it's actually the people that pressures you. You might as well not drink any alcohol..Or take any other drugs for that matter (medicine)
mishapqueen says2014-07-31T10:01:02.9115322-05:00
Caffeine barely effects me, and I'm not planning on drinking either. So you are equating an ibuprofen to marijuana?
reece says2014-07-31T10:12:20.8082976-05:00
Ibuprofen is capable of anemia, DNA damage, hearing loss, hypertension, miscarriage and even influenza mortality.So no,i'm not equating .
reece says2014-07-31T10:13:19.8554331-05:00
You shouldn't do weed while your pregnant too just saying.
mishapqueen says2014-07-31T10:13:46.7191497-05:00
Ok. So what is your point by saying I'm irresponsible about weed? Are you trying to convince me to try it? I don't recommend doing that.
mishapqueen says2014-07-31T10:14:26.1741836-05:00
Women can't do a lot of things while they are pregnant. No big surprise.
reece says2014-07-31T10:20:00.5901446-05:00
I'm just saying pot is one of the safest drugs.The only real bad side effect is memory loss but that's only if you have it like every day months on end.
reece says2014-07-31T10:22:57.3526115-05:00
And your memory comes back to normal after a while soo..
reece says2014-07-31T10:26:21.9169967-05:00
You said "Caffeine barely effects me" how did you find out?
Formerland1 says2014-07-31T12:44:40.3113681-05:00
I don't care if people smoke as long as they don't drie high and they do thier job properly .
mishapqueen says2014-07-31T18:34:28.5017924-05:00
Yes, Reece, I found out by trying it. I honestly don't care if it is a "safe drug" or not. I have made my choice, and shall stick by it. I don't care about your choices, that's your business. I will never try it though.
reece says2014-07-31T19:50:24.9126140-05:00
@mishapqueen Letting no one influence your thoughts through arrogance isn't healthy.
mishapqueen says2014-07-31T23:28:20.1057433-05:00
Reece, I let only certain, trusted people influence my thoughts. While you are my friend, you have not quite attained that level of friendship to have that happen very often. There are certain people who I am completely open-minded with, and some I am close-minded with. That is my choice and my freedom.
reece says2014-08-01T02:29:02.3470061-05:00
My point still stands.Don't you change your stance on something while you're debating a stranger? It shouldn't matter if You know the person or not, it matters on the evidence/reasoning they can provide and through critical thought you should be open minded to new ideas they have, vise versa.
mishapqueen says2014-08-01T08:57:32.1722924-05:00
I do change it sometimes. It really depends. I am not completely open-minded, but I am not completely close-minded either. Strangers can only influence certain parts of my thoughts, since I have convictions that I feel I must stay loyal to.
reece says2014-08-01T09:01:41.5070924-05:00
Convictions are what blind us.
mishapqueen says2014-08-01T09:02:49.8010987-05:00
My convictions are my moral code. Without it, life would not be pretty.
reece says2014-08-01T09:06:11.5285780-05:00
There are social morals and there are personal morals... Isn't it an obligation as a human to be curious?
mishapqueen says2014-08-01T09:07:36.8466187-05:00
Curiosity is definitely a human tendency, but it is not an obligation.
reece says2014-08-01T09:12:42.3316933-05:00
You think it's not Morally right to grow intellectually? Without that obligation we would still be stuck at where ever you believe humanity began.
mishapqueen says2014-08-01T09:16:02.7530207-05:00
No, that's not it at all. Yes, we should grow intellectually, but we should not do things that we believe are wrong.
reece says2014-08-01T09:21:02.2262207-05:00
Beliefs change all the time thus morals do too.
mishapqueen says2014-08-01T09:38:25.2169636-05:00
My beliefs do change, but I have not seen a reason to change my morals.
reece says2014-08-01T09:49:45.8900004-05:00
I will give you an example of morals changing via beliefs, E.G you use to not like crunchy peanut butter but now you do. (the morals changed from wrong to right) You can take this example and place it on any belief.
mishapqueen says2014-08-01T09:51:59.7536004-05:00
What do you mean by morals?
reece says2014-08-01T09:56:39.9752190-05:00
The difference between right and wrong...
mishapqueen says2014-08-01T10:02:31.3807147-05:00
Cool. How about, "I used to think it was wrong to murder, but now I know it's ok." Do you agree with that?
reece says2014-08-01T10:04:38.8348249-05:00
You personal morals are okay but social morals might disagree if they think it's not okay.
reece says2014-08-01T10:04:54.8713543-05:00
Your.
mishapqueen says2014-08-01T22:39:32.5939692-05:00
Reece, are we just talking about this to have something to argue about, or do we have a real purpose for this? I consider morals to be absolute.
reece says2014-08-01T23:23:10.0577978-05:00
No, i'm just trying to figure out your reasoning. How do you consider morals to be absolute? Is it because of your god?Take my peanut butter example... That shows morals are not absolute (when belief changes, so does the morals of it)
mishapqueen says2014-08-01T23:26:31.7709831-05:00
Yes, morals are absolute because of God. Everything in my life revolves around him. Your peanut butter example is so trivial it is confusing. Could you give me a better analogy so I can answer you better?
reece says2014-08-01T23:33:54.5386977-05:00
This is an example of personal morality.. You use to like killing people (okay to kill) but now you don't (wrong to kill).God might not like that but that's his own personal morals because he gave us freewill. Every action has an equal and opposite reaction, that goes for morality.
mishapqueen says2014-08-01T23:36:56.4997040-05:00
God's "personal" morals are imposed on all humans because he is the ruler of the world and everything in it. Murder is wrong because it treats God's image with contempt.
reece says2014-08-01T23:42:39.1714506-05:00
What you just sad has no value sorry.I could just as easily make up that my invisible pony is the ruler of the world. You need to believe in a god and read a bible to think that murder is wrong?
reece says2014-08-01T23:42:50.5907970-05:00
Said*
mishapqueen says2014-08-01T23:44:06.8036718-05:00
No, but it is a fixed point of reference. Why do you consider murder wrong?
reece says2014-08-01T23:49:24.2229759-05:00
Because i don't have faulty genes, i haven't grown up in a bad environment, etc etc etc
reece says2014-08-01T23:51:45.6092203-05:00
Morality changes through out your life via new beliefs...
mishapqueen says2014-08-01T23:59:15.9654301-05:00
So, if I have faulty genes, I don't have to serve time for murder?
reece says2014-08-02T00:10:59.2974807-05:00
The world isn't ready.We aren't that advanced with gene manipulation.But faulty genes should be picked up when baby's are born.
mishapqueen says2014-08-02T11:58:39.6581879-05:00
Nevertheless, using your reasoning, if I can prove I have bad genes and grew up in a bad environment, why should I be held up to your standard of right and wrong? If they are relative, it's perfectly fine to hold to my own standard of morality. You would be forcing your views on me to make me serve time because I have different morals. Instead, you should tolerate people like that, and treat their views with respect. (Note: I'm playing devil's advocate for the purpose of argumentation. I don't really believe that it is ok to murder.)
reece says2014-08-02T12:14:40.6054673-05:00
Who said it would be by my standard of morality? It's should be by society's standard.I didn't completely understand your point sorry?
mishapqueen says2014-08-02T12:19:30.1519602-05:00
You have this idea that it isn't ok to murder, and the reason you know it is because you don't have bad genes and a bad environment. If I have bad genes and a bad environment, then if I do something against your moral code, then I shouldn't be punished because it isn't my fault. Society's morals and personal morals are closely intertwined. Punishing me would be violating my morals in favor of holding up your own.
reece says2014-08-02T12:27:00.2875726-05:00
When did i say that you should be punished? I believe in Determinism.
mishapqueen says2014-08-02T12:27:43.4441216-05:00
What is that?
reece says2014-08-02T12:35:45.8825354-05:00
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Determinism So where did i say that you should be punished if you had different morals than me, etc?
mishapqueen says2014-08-02T12:44:32.2899063-05:00
Ok. You didn't say it, that was true. But if I can't control my actions, then what I did isn't wrong. Murder is punished in today's society. You are saying (I think) that I shouldn't get punished. What would you do with a murderer with bad genes and a bad environment?
reece says2014-08-02T12:51:02.8396017-05:00
Thank you. Like i have said "The world isn't ready"
reece says2014-08-02T12:51:48.5320017-05:00
And "We aren't that advanced with gene manipulation.But faulty genes should be picked up when baby's are born."
mishapqueen says2014-08-02T12:52:57.8432441-05:00
When will the world be ready? And what will you do with the babies with faulty genes? Exterminate them?
reece says2014-08-02T13:04:24.0068393-05:00
GENE MANIPULATION lol
mishapqueen says2014-08-02T13:11:25.1338531-05:00
That's better than I feared, but still not great.....
reece says2014-08-02T13:19:20.5413496-05:00
I have to keep repeating my self like all the other people i debate.So okay, if that gene/genes had the potential for that person to go on a shooting spree. Wouldn't you alter it so it wasn't have a threat to others? And why would it be bad?
reece says2014-08-02T13:19:51.4758749-05:00
Or not great, i should say?
mishapqueen says2014-08-02T13:22:02.5026260-05:00
I would wait and see if the person fulfilled those bad genes. It wouldn't be great, because the government could forcefully make obedient subjects like in 1984, and it would violate the child's rights.
reece says2014-08-02T13:32:01.7302410-05:00
Again the world isn't ready for it. There has been tests on people that indicate christian words makes people more acceptable to be awarded to do somthing they wouldn't normally try.
mishapqueen says2014-08-02T13:34:53.3292179-05:00
I don't understand the connection between gene altering and those tests.
reece says2014-08-02T13:38:39.2059616-05:00
I was just replying to this "It wouldn't be great, because the government could forcefully make obedient subjects like in 1984, and it would violate the child's rights."
mishapqueen says2014-08-02T13:40:59.6360047-05:00
I'm still confused....... Sorry. I admit you are a little beyond my depth. :)
reece says2014-08-02T13:43:47.2581097-05:00
It's okay. The key words..Make obedient subjects
mishapqueen says2014-08-02T13:45:42.0520931-05:00
Yes......? I'm having a hard time following your train of thought, I'm really sorry. I'm not just being difficult, I really don't get it. :(
reece says2014-08-02T13:48:22.1111711-05:00
Nvm...
mishapqueen says2014-08-02T13:49:05.0743973-05:00
Ok.
