Lawl, you have to either be a big troll or just recently developed critical thought if you're still stuck on "Culture is always Evil, why doesn't anybody else understand this?" mode.

Holy crap first page and already full caps swearing...

Also we are of nature and so is our culture...

All that man does is positive to man and often times negitive as well.

Everything is relative.

What are you comparing us only helping man to? I really havent seen any other species purposefully attempting to protect species that are about to go extinct. You could argue that we just think that would be bad for us when species go extinct, but what species isnt concerned about its own survival? We are as good as EVERYTHING ELSE thats living on this this planet. If you think that average "goodness" is evil then your standards are coming from fiction.

The way I think it works out, the human culture is probably the worst event of natural process or artificial effect to happen to existance.

We as a species are creations of nature, and separate from human culture are perfect symbols of natural selection under the effect of any habitat it occupies. Unfortunetly you cannot properly descibe "Man" without it's culture, a culture which gives rise to many of man's defining characteristics, such as greed or war or vanity or religion.

Human culture is what turns a naturally ballanced species into "Man", and sets it to destroy nature and it's self.


You dont have to reply, I dont expect you to, as you are so attached to human culture that you would destroy just to keep it.

...

You really are Armok Jr. You share the same hangups about society, and also the color scheme.

No, Hungry has a distinct art style, and is also fond of dark things, while Armok, despite being named after, well, Armok, gives out pink hugs. Personality is different, but opinions on society are the same.

Thats probably why Armok and me get along so well, but he doesnt have my dark past or unfortunet mental issues... I'm more like Armok's evil insane twin from a different country.

Thanks for saying its "distinct", and I'm not wholely into dark things...just most of me finds gore and dark things cute and cuddley in a horrible way(the lovely baby seals and their bloody skull pulp).

I'd probably give out pink hugs to blood and gore...

This was going to be my post about my damn feild generator but it kinda got left out when I when to bring up supporting common data...and got sucked into a stright up "what the fuck is wrong with these people" vortex of hate spiral...I'd lock this but meh...it seems fine to me.

'Dark past'?

Excuse me if my doubt is misplaced, but it seems hard to believe that a 22 year old American citizen who frequents forums could have that much of a 'dark past'.

Wait, I thought Hungry was younger than me. There goes everything I previously thought I knew.

I think it's entirely possible to have a dark past at that age.
Maybe he was heavily into drugs as a teenager and dropped out, but then got better.

Anyway, you're less like an evil insane twin and more like a smarter, also evil, younger cousin.

I only frequent this forum, I'm not quite sure why...and I have more dark past then I want to go over.

Of with includes parental abuse and suicide...and I didnt quite drop out but sure as hell didnt graduate...got a GED with high scores though, and not traditional drugs but surely abused.

I've had much conversation with Armok he's about as smart as me by what I get.

Most people that age have a dark past; having spent large amounts of time staying up late into the night for various reasons.

I don't. Just amusing story of my being 16 getting caught with bungy cord and a heavy drill in a girls room looking for a stud or something in the cieling that can support weight.

This story intrigues me.
