    Stranger And/or Stronger

    The quotation of Friedrich Nietzsche 'what doesn't kill you, makes you stronger' is one of the most famous in philosophy.  It's the expression of a very fundamental truth.  One who survives deadly experiences is enriched with all they can teach him.  Unusual...

    Stranger

    Best group I've seen in a while. And, true for me. We all get put through trials. No one comes out completely unscathed. Every experience we have affects our perspective on the very next experience we have. I read this somewhere recently and it keeps bugging me: Once you learn...

    Getting Stranger By the Minute

    My weirdness has been a coping mechanism for years... it's gotten me out of some sticky situations.  I have utilized my twisted wit for as long as I can rememeber.   I've even had people get the idea to fight me, I abhor violence so I would say something...

    So I higly recommend the happletea.

    It Sounds Reasonable To Me

    There's not much doubt I'm strange, my thoughts on life and love often impress people (if they ask) as innocent and even naive while my actual life experience as a whole hasn't been. In words I tend to express and reflect on what I've experienced but my actions appear to...
