And what are you doing in life today?

Are you on pills by any chance? On drugs? Do you consult a therapist? Do you have any sleep, emotional, relationship problems?

Oh wait, that can't be related to physical violence, can it?

EDIT: Yeah, downvote me, you're really progressing as an individual. Hide the scars from your past. You know what, I'm tired to having to downvote all my negative karma post to avoid the infamous "wait 10 mins before posting." This is staying. Go ahead and downvote me, and keep torturing children.

I've had both. Public shaming and violet punishment. I'm on no drugs, I've never been to a therapist. I have no sleep, emotional or relationship problems. Everyone's different. Some kids need tough love, others don't. Who are you to decide?

Woohoo! I can't reply because I'm on a 10-minute timer! Thank you reddit! Wish I could reply to your stupid post (reading your history, you didn't do nearly 1% as great as you claim to have done in life), but, hey, redditors downvote me and I'm stuck on a timer to reply. Thank you, reddit!

Because I can't reply (GREAT job reddit!) I will not read your reply neither. It's only fair in my opinion. Still, I'll go throught your "sane, no emotional/relationship problems" list of comments:

>Think what you want. Real clinical depression is usually a chemical imbalance that's ACTUALLY DETECTABLE. Clinical depression in the states is Patient: "I'm not happy today, WAHHHHHH." Doctor: "Here's an SSRI!" All to get anti-depressants sold. Doctors are PAID to push them. I know this for a fact.

No problem at all. Sane, balanced life. Fucking tool. Let me guess: docs pushed meds on you and you refused? THOSE DAMN EVIL DOCTORS, THEY ARE PAID TO DO THEIR JOBS!

Oh yeah:

>I can agree with that. Generalizations are typically wrong. I still feel pro choices are sick for wanting to fuck without responsibilities and murder their mistakes though

Abortion is murder. Again, a sane, balanced individuals with zero problems. I love how you dodged the questions you couldn't answer.

>I rarely, if ever, sleep more than 6 hours a night. I average between 3-5. I would have loved to take place in this study. I also have a buddy who has sleep apnea who sleeps with a machine that records his time spent sleeping. It's sitting at 4.1 right now. He's got pretty severe mood disorder and I have nothing diagnosed. I wonder how it would have turned out.

Nothing diagnosed... Yet. Love how you pronounced it. Balanced being, remember

>You are literally the dumbest person I've ever seen on the internet. You rarely need jumper cables. Do you keep them in your trunk? It's better to have a gun and not need it than to need it and not have it. It's called being prepared. That is not irrational. Your thought pattern is.

Yet, no bottled anger there.

>Go ahead and raise the minimum wage to $100 an hour. See what that does. I hope you don't vote.

Are you 15? 16? Oh no, wait, you worked for Tiberion studios AND EA "for a couple of years," or so you say later. What, you can't keep a job? Could it be...?

Most of the problems I mentioned, by the way, will only hit you when you become a bit older - especially when you have kids of your own. Let's talk again when you're 30, we'll see where you are in life, Mr. "Some kids needs to be tortured".

>It's really not hard to find women that hold the same opinion. Sluts should be shamed.

See you in a "God hates fags" parade because, hey, homosexuals aren't that far behind. Are you one of those guys yelling "ALLAH ACKBAR" and all that? That would totally make sense.

>Congratulations on making excuses for an entire race. Take that shit over to Africa where the REAL blacks are and offer them government assisted housing and an education while simultaneously shielding them from the shitty American black culture and see what they do with it. The problem IS the people whether you like it or not.

Yeah, you're racist too. Who could have guessed? Balanced individuals who is better off thanks to children torture, yeah!

>Poor people always make excuses for being poor. There's plenty of opportunity in the USA. Go out and find it.

And you hate poors, of course.

>Short story time! Buddy of mine goes to jail for his adult website

Buddy in jail! Everyone befriends people who goes to jail, of course! Sane individual, remember!

>$200 is a drop in the bucket to the problems over there. You save one kid and he grows up to have more starving kids.

Better beat them. And I'm the one who shouldn't have kids?

You're a totally sane being, dude. No doubt about it. That violence and torture has made it a better person. Go on and downvote it - maybe the only way you can keep living in your little illusion. Still, know that it will blow up one day, and that it will not be nice.

There are 698,000 cases of child abuse reported per year in the United States. You are amongst the cases that weren't reported.

It's harder to evaluate you because you delete your negative karma comments - can't blame ya, else you end on the same timer as me.

>The counter-argument: Why Mystic Gohan is obviously stronger than SSJ3 Goku

>[–]Twilight_Scko -1 points 1 month ago >and that was a shit argument. As shown in another thread.

Nothing wrong with liking manga/anime, but wait until you are at least a bit older and more mature before giving advice on life. At least you don't pretend to be a sane person, so I'm going to stop here. Still, I'll quote this:

>Except that medical students are not misinformed. As a former pre-med I switched because I decided that the debt/world load/compensation was simply not worth it. There is a ton of information, and advisors go out of their way to make sure you know the downsides. Anyone who is considering being a doctor as a profession has no excuse for not knowing the downsides. The information is easy to find.

Right. It's the debt, of course. Of course! The damn debt!

Going through my comment history. lol. It's obvious to everyone that you don't have a leg to stand on.

Liking manga/anime doesn't show any sort of immaturity or insanity. It's a hobby. You know, one of those things you might want to consider getting.

Debt is part of the reason. Not the only reason as I mentioned, and there are reasons I didn't mention. Debt is definitely up there though as 4 years of med school easily costs $200,000.

So to repeat what everyone else including probably those in your life have told you at some point or another: seek help, and don't have kids.

Ah, an appeal to the mass.

"EVERYONE has said that! Or probably have said that, whatever!"

>Debt is part of the reason.

The fact that you weren't up to the level had nothing to do with it, of course.

As I said anyway, there is nothing wrong with loving anime and mangas (learn to read by the way), but mature a little bit before you give others life advice.

Oh, and I''ll play the game: seek help for what? Tell me, Mr. pro. Seek help for not wanting to torture children?

They are telling you this because it's true.

>The fact that you weren't up to the level had nothing to do with it, of course.

My stats are fine for medical school. Probably/most likely couldn't get into a top medical school, but low to mid rank is definitely within range.

>mature a little bit before you give others life advice.

My maturity is fine. As mentioned, having a hobby is not indicative of maturity. You may want to consider having a less narrow mind.

>Oh, and I''ll play the game: seek help for what? Tell me, Mr. pro. Seek help for not wanting to torture children?

No one here is torturing children or promoting the torture of them. You should seek help in fixing your terrible, and misinformed worldview influenced by your past issues, and insecurities. Seek help for those.

>My stats are fine for medical school. Probably/most likely couldn't get into a top medical school, but low to mid rank is definitely within range.

I already said it's all about debt, man! DAMN THAT DEBT! You were right quitting, you could totally nail it, you know! YOU COULD HAVE IF YOU WANTED TO!

Goku >>> Sanoku>>> GUBS2 BUT NOT IN A PARALLEL UNIVERSE OMG SHUT THE FUCK UP YOU STUPID DIPSHIT YOU DONT KNOW SHIT

(quoting you on this).

My maturity is fine!

Yes they are. They are promoting hitting and beating children. Cut the crap, already. Know how POW are interrogated in prison camps?

>You should seek help in fixing your terrible, and misinformed worldview influenced by your past issues, and insecurities. Seek help for those.

A projection from your own life to mine. Cute.

My dad hit me as a kid when I misbehaved and deserved it. I will shortly be an attorney, I don't do drugs/pills/etc, I go to the gym every day, no relationship problems, no violence towards others. My friends were hit as kids. My uncles were hit as kids. Not one of them has problems such as the ones you mention. Like others have said, violence can be a great teaching tool for some kids. I'm not advocating it for all, but it works for a lot of kids, when it is deserved of course. Indiscriminate violence towards children for no reason is definitely not the way to go.

Justify the violence that was done against you. Very good. It's exactly like a woman stating "Well, I dressed sexily, so I deserved it".

Okay, let's hit your comment history:

>My friends were hit as kids. My uncles were hit as kids. Not one of them has problems such as the ones you mention

That's a stupid, anecdotical evidence. Go to scholar.google.com and type "violence children." Tons of studies confirming what I say. Also, you don't know what problems they have. In fact, I don't have to go very far but:

>Hi, competitive fighter here

Wow, total coincidence! An adult who was beaten as a child is a competitive fighter, and also hits the gym every day! I mean, it's totally unrelated, right! "Every day is gym day." Everyone goes to the gym every day! Could it has something to do with... I don't know, you wanting to be strong? Hmmmmm.

>Yeah absolutely. I'm actually training for my first exhibition Muay Thai fight right now.

NOTHING to do with the trauma you lived as a child. Absolutely nothing at all. Totally unrelated.

>I'm not advocating it for all, but it works for a lot of kids, when it is deserved of course.

You are a disgusting human being and everything that is wrong in our society. I'm ashamed that someone who promotes torture against children (go to google image and type "child abuse evidence) can become an attorney.

>violence can be a great teaching tool for some kids.

Violence as a teaching tool. Unfreaking believable. The illusions some people get into are simply incredible. You are fucking nuts. Period.

Might as well start using it on your spouse as well. A girl refuses your advances? Throw some acid in her face! Teaching tool, right?

>What I tell my students is to assess the situation. If you think the person is not trying to hurt you and only wants your possessions then you give them your money. If you think the opposite you kick the living shit out of him.

Of course. Violence is there, again. Coincidence, I tell ya!

>Yep. Too lazy or too big of a pussy to get out their aggressions the proper way (kicking ass/getting your ass kicked while safely sparring in martial arts class, going to the gym, etc.) so they end up with drug addictions and jumping in front of trains. Pretty sad if you ask me.

Compassion is one of your strength. Remember: this is coming from a "sane and balanced" individual. FUCKING PUSSIES

>Honestly, if a guy is attacking me with a pocket knife and is trying to stab me repeatedly in the stomach, he MIGHT get two stabs in

Why, that happens often to you? You already know what would happen? Why are you so obsessed with self-defense? Oh yeah...

"Sane and balanced individual," remember.

>I hope that you need a police officer one day and that the police officer saves your life.

Question: was your dad a police officer?

>Sympathy for a child molester is not O.K. in my book.

But against a child abused, it's O.K. Remember. Violence in movies O.K., sex NO.

>There is an extensive checklist that is gone through that details every possible positive and negative consequence of a drone strike

Violence, again! And again! And again!

>No problem. What makes Krav Maga different from most other systems is that Krav trains you for real-life scenarios. And you get one hell of a workout in the classes!

COINCIDENCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Also, you say "As an intern at a law firm" at least 2000 times. We know you are a future lawyer and that you are very proud of it, but get over it. Yes, you managed to do something with your life, congrats. Have any spouse by any chance? How's the relationship going?

Where can I find your posts about dogs, about some kind of hobby that doesn't imply "survival skills"?

>Law clerk at a law firm. So basically I have nothing to do unless an attorney approaches me with an issue to research or a legal memorandum to write, so I Reddit like a fiend most of the day until I get asked to do something. I used to feel bad about it, but I have asked the attorneys on multiple occasions if they have anything for me to do, but they just tell me that they'll let me know when they need something from me. So now I shamelessly Reddit guilt-free.

Fulfilling job, WonAndDone.

Of course you don't do drugs - anymore. You are drug-testing. You're not only an hypocrite and a child torturer, but a liar.

You're retarded, grow up and face the problems you lived a child once and for all. One day, it WILL blow up. Could be at 30, at 40 or at 50, but it will bite you in the ass at the end.

I did not suffer any trauma as a child. I'd like to inform you that I was only hit maybe 3 times as a child, and that's likely an overestimation. I was hit once for hitting my brother and once for disrespecting my mother. The other time i cannot recall for what.

Also, simply because an individual enjoys competitive fighting does not make that person a violent individual. That is a generalization made by people unfamiliar with how kind fighters can be. I in fact am extremely passive, even compared to my non fighter friends.

Also, I am "obsessed" (as you call it) with self-defense because I ride one of the worst public transit lines in the country (crime statistic wise) and would rather be prepared than sit there and be mugged like most people (and probably you). Please live in an area where your safety is threatened on a daily basis, and then come and talk to me about knowing how to defend yourself. I have never once initiated a fight. I have however, been jumped and walked away unharmed because I value my safety enough to train for those types of situations.

Also, accusing me of violence against women is pretty pathetic. My comment that you reference for that was in response to someone who mentioned that a friend had been stabbed even after turning over their wallet to the mugger. I advised him that if you feel that someone mugging you is going to harm you instead of merely taking your belongings, then you must defend yourself. If not, you merely give them your belongings.

I am not drug tested. I don't do drugs as a personal choice. I don't do drugs because they are bad for you and they are a waste of time that could be spent being productive.

Sir/son, we come from different backgrounds, areas of the country/world, experiences and families. I am proud of the way my mother, father, grandfathers and grandmothers raised me and would not have it any other way. My family was loving and caring, until I acted like a little shit, and then the tough love came out (no more than 3 times over the course of my childhood).

You sit on reddit like a defender of children, yet you call me retarded, accuse me of violence against women, and assume that since I say that hitting your kids is ok (when they deserve it), that I was beaten mercilessly as a child. You need to grow up and realize that all kids cannot be coddled and babied. I know plenty of rich kids who were coddled and told they could do no wrong, and now they're either drug addicts, in jail or sitting at home on their parent's couch in multi-million dollar homes.

Loving parenting interspersed with tough love in the form of a smack on the bottom every once in a while is not the evil thing that you seem to think it is. That's reality, son. I'm not promoting child abuse; I'm merely saying that giving your son a stern smack on the bottom is OK when telling them what they're doing is wrong does not cut it.

>I did not suffer any trauma as a child

Or so you say, and yet you feel the need to downvote my reply, as if it would change anything.

Who are you trying to convince anyway? Me or yourself?

>I'd like to inform you that I was only hit maybe 3 times as a child, and that's likely an overestimation.

Obviously, I couldn't simply guess that.. I'd like to inform you, by the way, that some children are beaten daily. But it's for their well-being, right?

By the way, three times is three times too much.

>I was hit once for hitting my brother

According to your logic, if I murder someone, I should be murdered as well. A crime to punish a crime.

>and once for disrespecting my mother.

By your dad? He had to assert his authority as the male of the family there! Your mom and dad probably fucked really hard that night.

>Also, simply because an individual enjoys competitive fighting does not make that person a violent individual.

I already said: COINCIDENCES, man. What, everyone ends up obsessed with stress fighting and fantasizing about scenarios where they can legally kill someone. No?

>hat is a generalization made by people unfamiliar with how kind fighters can be. I in fact am extremely passive, even compared to my non fighter friends.

And yet you fantasize about "I wish someone could stab me twice on the street so I COULD KICK THE SHIT OUT OF HIM OMG"

I'm a fighter too, by the way, so I know what I'm talking about.

>Also, I am "obsessed" (as you call it) with self-defense because I ride one of the worst public transit lines in the country

Self-justification. Lying to yourself. Do you see where the problem is? Do you at least realize it? That's exactly like someone saying "Yeah, I robbed a bank, but the banks has BILLIONS of dollars of profits, so what is $1,000 for them?"

>and would rather be prepared than sit there and be mugged like most people (and probably you).

Brilliant sentence. Proves EVERY SINGLE THING I'VE BEEN SAYING:

1) You claim that every people wants to be mugged and would do nothing.

2) You LIE because you claim you would do something about it, yet in another comment you said you would "simply give your wallet"

3) You're paranoid - everyone wants to mug you at all times.

4) You feel insecure. No shit.

5) Violence, again.

>Please live in an area where your safety is threatened on a daily basis, and then come and talk to me about knowing how to defend yourself.

I've spent my teenage years there and, guess what, I... MOVED!

>I have however, been jumped and walked away unharmed because I value my safety enough to train for those types of situations.

Odd. I never got attacked. MUST BE BECAUSE I DONT TAKE THE HIGHEST-RISK PUBLIC TRANSIT IN THE WORLD OMG!

>Also, accusing me of violence against women is pretty pathetic. My comment that you reference for that was in response to someone who mentioned that a friend had been stabbed even after turning over their wallet to the mugger.

Couldn't find the comment.

>I am proud of the way my mother, father, grandfathers and grandmothers raised me and would not have it any other way.

It's possible that your parents were GREAT parents apart from the three incidents you mentioned, by the way. But that doesn't make the three incidents right.

There is one thing I don't get with you: someone mugs you in the street and hits you, it's not OK. Your parents beat you, it's OK. Oh yeah, you were a little shit, of course, that's why!

Again, I repeat that child abuse in the US is absolutely terrible. Every year, there are 698,000 SUBSTIANTED cases of child abuse in the US alone.

>You need to grow up and realize that all kids cannot be coddled and babied.

There is no difference between "not being coddled and babied" and being beaten, is there?

>(when they deserve it)

Yeah, little shit deserve it!

What makes a "deserve it" by the way? Child refuse to eat - beat him. Child refuse to obey my every comment - beat him. Do you see the error in the logic here.

>I know plenty of rich kids who were coddled and told they could do no wrong, and now they're either drug addicts, in jail or sitting at home on their parent's couch in multi-million dollar homes.

Here you do bring an interesting point, sir/son. Emotional abuse. If I had more time, I could go at great length about it. In a way, yes, emotional abuse can be as bad, or even worse than physical abuse.

>Loving parenting interspersed with tough love in the form of a smack on the bottom every once in a while is not the evil thing that you seem to think it is.

Any form of physical abuse is not acceptable. It's a slippery slope that ends with children in the hospital with broken bones. Do you wonder why 1% of the adult US population is in jail? Why antidepressants are widespread, why there are so many suicides, etc., etc., etc. Bad parenting. Terrible parentings. Children in the United States are tortured daily - hell, 5 children die of child abuse every day - and this simply makes my blood boil.

It's so easy to beat a child. And it's so pathetic. Only a total moron, a coward, a less than a man would ever feel the need to hit a child no matter what. And rest assured that there are consequences, at least psychological. Your life right now is not totally unrelated to the previous events in your life. You are training in Krav Maga (which I've done too, by the way) and Muay Thai because 1) Sports help releases endorphins, relieve stress, anxiety and so on (I commend you for that) 2) You want to feel safe again. It's that simple.

You don't seem like a bad person, so I wish you the best of luck in your future endeavors.

Child abuse is a terrible, terrible thing, I completely agree. I'm not promoting child abuse. Merely giving your son a stern smack on the bottom is OK in my book when telling them what they're doing wrong does not work. Also, you could use some tact in your responses.
