    Re: Bad Situations

    I don't understand why you are referring those as "concepts" or "ideas". They are events or situations. Am I missing something?

    Re: Bad Situations

    Through pride or an antagonistic/confrontational attitude I would say that making a bad situation worse is greater than creating the problem in the first place.

    Of course, this is, if the "making worse" of the situation is done on purpose, or done with the knowledge that the action that makes the situation worse will in fact make the situation worse.

    If the bad situation wasn't there in the first place, there would be nothing to make worse

    Re: Bad Situations

    It is possible for a bad situation to be turned into a good situation. For example an abusive husband tosses his wife and kids on the street,while homeless this would be a bad situation. But the wife can turn the bad situation better by getting help,file charges against the abusive husband to perhaps have his ass thrown in jail for assault and battery,get a job to live with the kids on her own and or a new man who is not abusive.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    As long as I don't get caught, I look for ways to make bad situations worse...

    Re: Bad Situations

    I guess creating bad situations are sometimes unavoidable. I mean, **** happens. All the time. Whether your ignorant or smart, lucky or unlucky, man or women, black or white, salt or pepper, etc.

    However, making the situation worse is avoidable. It may not be avoidable if you're ignorant, if you're unlucky, if you're a woman, if you're black, if you're a pepper, etc.

    So, if you're a smart lucky salty white man, you've got no excuses for making a situation worse.
