     I Am Not Easily Shock...

     I am not easily shocked, but I was shocked today. I forget what she said. I wish I could remember, though, cause it was a doozie.   Anyway. I suppose it's something to do with growing up in a safe and supportive environment, things just don't threaten me. I'm open to...

    So many people get so shocked when they watch the news and there is a crazy murder or some ****. I mean really, I know It's not pleasant to hear but It's not shocking whatsoever. The world is a messed up place and tragedies happen every day. Gore, death, rape, murder...

    2 summers ago I lived in a tent in a field next

    to the freeway. I was hooking and selling pot to get by. I was on meth and Booz and started slamming dilottas. I had missed a shot of meth in my arm and hurt so bad so I bought a fifth of vodka and went back to my camp. My camp mate also a hooker had a john there so I went to...

    Shocking Me Is Difficult

    I don't know what it is, but it's hard to get a real shock to rock me and shake my foundation.  People say things to me and sometimes it seems like they expect an outrageous reaction like, "WHAT?!" or "No way!" and all that BS.  But I just stand...

    I also try to not harshly judge others

    for their lifestyle choices when they do not agree with mine. We all have to lead our lives in our own ways. I ask that others try not to judge me to harshly in return.

    I Have Seen A Lot

    Seen a lot, and lived a lot. And I think I'm rather open-minded on many topics. What's more I stay mostly cool in situations. I dunno if it's my nature or if it's life that brought me here, or both maybe. Not shocked by corruption, not shocked by evil people, not shocked by gay...

    I Don't Shock Easily

    I've seen about all of it and have gone through alot in my life, so not much shocks me anymore.  I've also known some very eccentric people in my life.  Very rarely does something shock me.

    Yes I Am Easily Shocked. ...

    Yes I am easily shocked. Especially by the kids of today. I believe t/v and some movies are a lot to blame. Also some parents don't seem to teach the kids respect,values and good manners any more. I know I will cop a lot of flak for saying this, but I don't always blame...

    Seen It All And Baby I Can Guess The Rest

    my title says it all. I am not jaded--just open to all the possibilities of life...well--maybe I am a bit cynical...but not much shocks me...it may disgust me in some way--or fill me with pain--or some other emotion- I did not say that I am unaffected by things--just not shocked...

    Don't Remember

    I can't even remember the last time I was honestly shocked. I didn't even realize it was weird until I took a few classes in college where the professor would bring up something and the rest of the class would react and I'd just be sitting there thinking "So?" I think...

    Unshockable? Possibly.

    As many stories before mine, it could very well have something to do with my incredibly openminded nature. I think, however, its due to the fact that I know everyone has odd little things about themselves that they're hesitant to tell anyone.   ...and usually, when...

    It Takes a Lot

    It takes a lot to shock or offend me.  I guess I'm just really open-minded.  I like not being shocked easily too...it makes life so much more fun.

    If it's possible, somebody out there will most likely do it. So, I should just expect anything to be possibly done, even if nothing does actually occur.
