I once stressed out more about being banned here than even a family member dying. I vividly remember all the times I was banned her and went crazy on the mods, but cannot even remember the family member I was supposed to care about. Just that we were close and they died.

You don't even remember them yet you'd claim you were close with em? Odd, but such oddness is why I enjoy your post haha.

A newspaper is not dense enough to have the mass needed to actually beat a chicken to death and I won't even get into the fact that at 7 years of age one's strength is even more limited for such a task.

So how on earth did you succeed in killing a chicken with a newspaper?

I'm sleepy, time for a nappy!

I was on a farm located in a mountain and i was playing with the chickens by throwing the newspaper at them, however because i was a child and i didnt had the strenght, every time i threw the newspaper at them the thing would just open up and all the pages would just fall to the ground.

However after the second try i took the newspaper and i rolled it up real good and i threw it at them and this time it didnt open up, instead it hit the chicken and because the farm was located on a mountain, said chicken rolled down the hill...  and there was a lot of bushes filled with thorns on the hill from the beggining of it to the very end...

Yeah... the chicken rolled through about a 100 or more meters of bushes that had torns everywhere and it essentially suffered a death compared to a Mortal Kombat fatality... i remember crying that night telling my mom what i did and she actually laughed it off and told me it was fine, since it was an accident and all (not to mention i was a child).

EDIT: btw i was never expecting to actually hit the chicken since i was convinced i just didnt had the strenght at the time, i was just trying to scare them and in no way did i wanted to harm them, i was just a child that was being playful and... well it was just a sad accident.

It's hard to follow that rule when no one else does. Do you really keep playing nice when someone is up in your face being an asshole? And I mean in real life where you can't just ignore people or swivel in your chair away from the computer screen.

You get back at them the most when you calmly put them down,whenever you let yourself be upset you just become their puppet to trigger whenever they want.

That said,i understand some situations are different yes but overall you can still try to be nice in general.

But they can take your calmly putting them down as weakness and mark as you as easy prey, someone they know they can harass without consequence, I've experienced this firsthand.

I don't believe you should be nice to assholes, that will only reinforce their behavior and may even cause things to escalate, but that's just my opinion. If your way has worked for you then by all means keep at it!



When I was 4 years old a 2 tone cement pole that my grandfather was transporting in his truck came free and dropped one step away from me. I am convinced there are countless parallel universes where 4 year old me got crushed at that moment.

I know, i've experienced that too.

Depends on the positition you are in and experience you have on how you are able to handle those situations,in a position of authority you just need to verbally slap their hand when they go out of line but if you do not have that then sometimes a more confrontational approach is needed.

When i calmly put them down i do not really consider them thinking it is nice,it needs to have some form of impact but you do not need to become a jerk in order to do that.
