    I like using memes. I just don't like saying the word, because of that stupid asshat that was thankfully removed from DP.

    Fun , I like seeing others people op's and how other human beings think . The more minds the better. It lets me see the different side on the spectrum when it comes to thought. One sidedness can be quite boring .

    Sometimes as other posters say to mess with a few people , but only the ones who show a complete biased ( its just to easy sometimes and hard to resist )

    Good point, how we feel has a lot to do with what we say and how we say it.

    Honestly, without the ability to vent a large portion of that frustration at a place like this, God only knows what I would have done by now.



    Drinking a couple of cold beers and listening to some music helps me to chill out.

    Other : brainstorming solutions for problems that piss me off. And, of course, venting / cynicism / fun with online friends.

    In my humble opinion, its the only way to ensure honest answers in our politically correct culture.

    Call it arrogant but I too think I'm doing people a favor by taking my time and energy to share my views. If I think for a minute I'm not wanted or appreciated from an official level, see ya. Why waste my time bothering people?

    I don't drink alcohol, smoke, or do any sort of illegal drug. I don't believe they are appropriate in any form.
