    It's an example of: Woohoo, I can light things on fire! LOOK AT MY MESSAGE! ISN'T THIS A STRONG MESSAGE! OOOHH! FIRE! DOWN WITH AMERICA!!! I liken flag burning to those "nonconformist" emo kids who do **** to stand out and get attention.

    I never burned an American flag. I had a picture with a burning American flag, not because I hate America, but to see the reactions and judge them.

    Some might call that International Trollerism.

    The result was quite extreme, but very interesting. I wouldn´t say I use people as Guinea pigs, but it was something that brought results and conclutions.

    You knew what results you would get before you even started your little 'experiment'.

    I had a theory, yes. I was surprised the reactions were as strong as they were, and dissapointed and saddened that this was the result.

    You put yourself on a pedestal, your elitism oozes from almost every post. Even when you try to be humble, you just come off as fake or mocking. Just, step off the pedestal man. You aren't as wise or clever as you think you are and you aren't as knowledgeable as you believe yourself to be, especially in comparison to some of the other posters here that you seem to dismiss when they disagree with you and have decent evidence to back up their claims.


    tl;dr - Your self righteous ego isn't getting you anywhere, especially when coupled with your beliefs.

    Too late, you've proven it with 88.45% of your posts. I get an error of "too many characters" even just linking to all these posts. So basically, just roll a D20 for every one of your posts. If it's a 17, 18, 19, 20 you score a "Not Egotistical" on your attack phase, re-roll. If you get a 16 or below, you've posted egotistically and well...roll again.

    Repeat until you've rolled for each post, then you let me know the results.

    EDIT: For each post in which you reference yourself using words like "I, ME, MYSELF" subtract 2 points from the roll as you've almost certainly let your ego slip when you refer directly to yourself.
