cloudygrey33: My first thought--- A zoomed in part of the Castlevania cover art for NES. That's not it. My second thought is definitely album cover... Possibly something in the metal genre? Video game or album cover...

Shadowslacker: “The major problem—one of the major problems, for there are several—one of the many major problems with governing people is that of whom you get to do it; or rather of who manages to get people to let them do it to them.
To summarize: it is a well-known fact that those people who must want to rule people are, ipso facto, those least suited to do it.
To summarize the summary: anyone who is capable of getting themselves made President should on no account be allowed to do the job.
To summarize the summary of the summary: people are a problem."
cloudygrey33: 100 percent this! Anyone who would be wise or qualified enough to actually do the job would instinctively know how unqualified they are to begin with! There is just this social/cultural game where people have to pretend that they're strong enough/smart enough/wise enough ... So we end up with rows and rows of egomaniacs and narcissistic blowhards who have all learned how to play this slick little social game where they know exactly what to say at all times ... It has nothing to do with their substance or actual ability to lead or make good decisions. It is all about how well they play the game. How well they can manipulate people.... Basically.
Shadowslacker: Hey everybody. You know when you click on the star at top left and you get a list of badges, comments etc you've received? I've got a jerk comment I want to push off that list. Just 4 replies to this post will do it! Anything is fine, random keystrokes, telling me how much Stryper sucks - if you're in the first 4 replies to this you won't be held accountable! Go nuts!

Shadowslacker: Ever say to yourself, "I like the wisdom of Odin, I just wish someone would translate it into cowboy vernacular."? I think we've all said that to ourselves at some point. Well, good news everyone!
