Every time an ISIS leader gets blown up,my conscience says "This one is okay". I'm a firm agnostic. I have no clue what happens after we die but I do know that we have one chance to live the life we have right now. The finality of death is something I try to wrap my head around constantly. Who are we to decide when somebody ceases to exist? There are however these, as I said, gray areas. Nazi orchestrators(sp?) and ISIS are very cliche examples but I honestly think they lost their right to live on this earth if all they're going to do is kill people. I realize the hypocrisy. THEY ARE KILLING? CAN'T HAVE THAT. KILL THEM.

There's the gray area. At what point do you do something? When I was out in SD for the Seals graduation, I met a lot of people that I could tell just wanted to kill people and some who generally felt the need to at least be there to defend the county in case of craziness. I can't really fault the latter. They don't get to have special treatment like discounts and sh*t. But, f*ck, who else is going to do it when the time comes?

We ain't, neither are they.

I can because I don't support tribalism even at a nationwide level. Goes a bit beyond what we're on about but I'm not a big fan of what they're defending. Strip countries down to the individual.

I think we all just become mannequin versions of ourselves and we get displayed on windows in dead malls. So all those mannequins you see in stores still on display, they're actually people who've been decomposing for several years. They put clothing on them to hide the smell.

Actually every death ever observed of every living thing ever was the same. No dead organism ever went somewhere else. All starting decomposing. At this point with billions and billions of direct observations it’s very safe to say it’s settled.
