I know, I know, it's just that I don't know what should be there. :GA:
Could put some awesome Jack quote in there.

That Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone, that refrigerator mums cause autism, and that I'm a genius.

...bad day, Scrap?
it is well known that PMS Elle is evil.
I think you'd fit in a 12" or at least a 16" firework mortar
You win this thread because that's most unsettling to even think about.

Not realising a lie, but realising that in the end nothing could be seen the same by me as by someone else, (without thinking the world was a figment of my imagination...)
Around 6

Was a positive thing for me. Though I realised there was no chance of ever seeing something  exactly the same way as someone else. I had gotten an intellectual sense of solitude. And I loved it. Absolute truth could never be claimed by anyone from there on.
I can do upside down chocolate moo things!

Never. I grew up with parents who were extremely honest with me.

I don't want to hear it. Save your complaints to Odeon. Yes, we had decided to drop hostilities. No, I didnt expect that Odeon would do other than start shit again like he always does
You're not going to stick to "a handful people", are you? That would be stupid.
Damned if I won't respond.
So it's on again & you can lay the blame squarely at his feet. Little passive-aggressive bitch

Inquiring minds want to know what happened at age 22. Was it Santa? Or did I just burst your bubble at 39? :laugh:

It didn't work quite the same way with me. What happened was, it became clear that there were different categories of "true." In one basket were scientifically-provable, demonstrable facts that you could count on all the time. In a different basket went the things that were either obviously-untrue, imaginary, or otherwise unprovable, which you nevertheless had to pretend really existed for various reasons. These included such things as religious teachings, patriotism, gratitude, school spirit, love, and emotional identification with fictional characters. I couldn't understand what purpose was served by imagining all those things were real, but other people seemed to get upset if you didn't, so it was best to play the game and avoid getting into arguments. :green:

Not exactly a lie, but I slowly realized that nothing has a purpose. Any major events, wars etc. mean fuck all when compared to the scale of the universe - the earth is only a grain of sand compared to it.

Relaxes me, that thought.

Childhood diagnosis and the way I had been treated on account of that diagnosis was disproven.
