With sincerest apologies to my athiestic friends…

by PhotographyIsMyLife

If we are going to continue to have a society in which 1. teens think they have no other option but to off themselves, and 2. we need to neglect the poor further because people like the Trumps and Waltons need a few hundred million more, well, the second coming can’t come soon enough for this miserable fucking planet.

Why, that you are wishing they die, unsaved, or that the world is thus?
The myth of The Rescuer.
I’m not mocking your beliefs. I was a believer once, sometimes I think I still am.
If Christ, the light out to have been brighter in his followers, not the Crusades, Inquisition, etc.
But perhaps it is not G-d’s failure, per se, but His failure in us.

PhotographyIsMyLife 5/27/2017 - 12:23 pm

Just that there is too much fucking pain in this world, borne by the wrong people. I’m just generally pissed off and disgusted. I’m angry about too many people who are barely holding on because nobody cares. I’m just. Fucking. Fed. Up.

SweetQuietus 5/27/2017 - 3:22 pm

I wish we could somehow lessen the suffering in a real and enduring way. No matter what we do as individuals, as groups, as nations, it seems not to make as much a difference as the effort put for to make it.
I’m not trying to be clever or snarky. I honestly don’t know about anything anymore.

PhotographyIsMyLife 5/27/2017 - 5:32 pm

I don’t know where you live. But here in the US we could make some serious strides in at least alleviating some suffering…but there is no compassion. Trump is the symptom of a larger issue. Nobody gives a fuck about their neighbor. Instead of trying to help kids, maybe help them get through their pain, we laugh, judge, and marginalize them. They feel hopeless as young kids. What the fuck kind of society are we?

SweetQuietus 5/27/2017 - 5:38 pm

Trump doesn’t define America, we do! Besides, all the suffering pre-Trump? We, as human beings have failed one another and the planet in significant ways on multiple levels throughout time.
Today I was thinking it is because of our cleverness: we manipulate our environment and each other because of our unwillingness to adapt.

PhotographyIsMyLife 5/27/2017 - 5:45 pm

I agree…Trump is a symptom of the problem. But Obamacare at least gave more ppl a safety net. We’re getting worse…not better.

SweetQuietus 5/27/2017 - 5:51 pm

Every present I give now is in a person’s honor to charity.
I wonder how long it will be before people stop inviting me to celebrations or tell me to just bring wine. LOL

PhotographyIsMyLife 5/27/2017 - 5:53 pm

Great idea!

PhotographyIsMyLife 5/27/2017 - 5:52 pm

Y’know, SQ, I reread your OP…yeah, I want a rescuer for those people who deserve it. I generally am a pretty peaceful person. But today I want retribution for the bastards who, instead of helping or just staying neutral, demand a bigger piece of the pie at the expense of those who truly need it.

SweetQuietus 5/27/2017 - 5:57 pm

It’s sickening. It’s a black hole that sucks everything into it, no expense of life or liberty too great.
I know you’re one of the good guys, Photography.
Aside from political activism and devoting money/time to making things better, I’m at a loss as to how to change the world.

PhotographyIsMyLife 5/27/2017 - 6:53 pm

Thank you. You as well. Well, I can’t change the world, but I can make my little area of the world better.

SweetQuietus 5/27/2017 - 6:57 pm

And I am sure you do just that!

Fighting-For-Good 5/27/2017 - 11:11 am

When u ask for forgiveness from atheists for expressing ur religious view, do u think that religion would hold any respect for u?

PhotographyIsMyLife 5/27/2017 - 12:24 pm

I am only asking forgiveness in that they don’t share the view of a 2nd coming. That’s all. Nothing more or less.

shadow 5/27/2017 - 11:25 am

Maybe I’m reading it wrong but I thought this was just a funny cynical quip about the need for the world to end. Not really a religious statement. Or yoiu could say Apologies to my astronomer friends, I hope this planet crashes into the sun tomorrow. I completely agree.

PhotographyIsMyLife 5/27/2017 - 12:25 pm

I could see where you’d think that. I’m just on a rant.

fally 5/27/2017 - 11:36 am

as Omar Khayyam says:
Some are thoughtful on their way
Some are doubtful, so they pray.
I hear the hidden voice that may
Shout, “Both paths lead astray

PhotographyIsMyLife 5/27/2017 - 12:26 pm

?

fally 5/27/2017 - 12:30 pm

I think it was more a response to the other comments rather than your post.

brokenandbent30 5/27/2017 - 3:28 pm

Anyone with eyes and half a brain can see that this ship is going down. Yes, I am disgusted by a lot that is going on too. It does feel like the “second coming”. Everything is adding up. Trump doesn’t care about the poor or our mental healthcare. The ship is going down, so we can either go out kicking, screaming and crying or fighting back and trying to have fun!

PhotographyIsMyLife 5/27/2017 - 5:47 pm

I want to fight. I don’t want these motherfuckers to win.

midian monster 5/27/2017 - 6:01 pm

PIML.
Who are we fighting? Point me in the right ditrection, i’ll happily go on point.

PhotographyIsMyLife 5/27/2017 - 6:57 pm

I’m looking at many of the vastness in power in this country and the megabusinesses that buy them off. I want to see fairness.

SweetQuietus 5/27/2017 - 7:02 pm

Apathy is the greater evil, imho. Big business would invest in charity to benefit their image. It’s people, PIML, it’s us, the human race. If we can get people to relate. . . .

midian monster 5/27/2017 - 7:06 pm

Yeah i feel ya.
We can see if we can negotiate fairness from the front end of a loaded .45
Hi N.S.A *waves

SweetQuietus 5/27/2017 - 7:08 pm

Um, no. Hippie pacifist hands “Linda, the Lobster Farmer” a daisy.

midian monster 5/27/2017 - 7:12 pm

Hey. peace and love and all that good stuff steve 🙂

SweetQuietus 5/27/2017 - 7:13 pm

You too, Lin. 😉

midian monster 5/27/2017 - 7:16 pm

Oh. It’s Lin now is it?
By tomorrow i’ll just be a consonant.
By monday, i’ll just be a memory.

SweetQuietus 5/27/2017 - 7:22 pm

LIN! YOU? Ne-ver. We’ll have to find a movie or a book we both love and come up with names from that. (Boo Radley? )

midian monster 5/27/2017 - 7:25 pm

Considering the amount of time i spend indoors, itwould be an appropriate name for me.
Wow, did that for English in me School days.

SweetQuietus 5/27/2017 - 7:29 pm

Alright then, Mr. Radley (*Boo*), you may call me “Scout” (Jean Louise Finch when I need to be reeled).

midian monster 5/27/2017 - 7:32 pm

Ok Scout.
When the time comes, you can count on me.

SweetQuietus 5/27/2017 - 7:37 pm

Thanks, Boo.
Leaving Atticus Finch for SeeSmith
(Smitty!)

midian monster 5/27/2017 - 7:40 pm

haha 🙂
Well i’m off too bed. So night Scout, it’s been great talking with you tonight.
Im hoping you don’t get arrested for money laundering.
Yours
Boo

SweetQuietus 5/27/2017 - 7:45 pm

Goodnight, Boo. (I think you’re “Rad”). Ugh. sorry.
No laundering tonight, still a dollar short.
Sweet dreams.

Chip 5/27/2017 - 5:18 pm

My two cents could very quickly turn into a thousand bucks if I get my mouth going on this thread, so I’ll just say I agree totally. What the hell are we doing anymore??

PhotographyIsMyLife 5/27/2017 - 5:24 pm

Go for it, Chjp! 🙂

Chip 5/27/2017 - 5:21 pm

I fantasize about the day we’re interrupted by breaking news of an impending astronomical disaster. The tv news anchor has his legs up on the news desk, casually, saying “Folks, smoke ’em if ya got ’em!”

midian monster 5/27/2017 - 5:26 pm

lmfao Chip
This is my personal fantasy. News reporter saying we’re all fucked, now here’s Gail with the weather.

SweetQuietus 5/27/2017 - 5:29 pm

They’ll never tell us for fear of “mass hysteria” because someone might get hurt, it being the end of the world ‘n’ all.

PhotographyIsMyLife 5/27/2017 - 5:26 pm

Lol!

SweetQuietus 5/27/2017 - 5:28 pm

I should buy a pack, to keep on hand. “In Case of Emergency: Open up, light up, and smoke fast!”

FarahLajeenNourAlDeen 5/27/2017 - 5:34 pm

I think this is supposed to be a somewhat “feeling down” post…
but Chip I just can’t stop laughing here 😀 😀 😀

midian monster 5/27/2017 - 5:37 pm

I know farah, but if (and i think i’m not alone here) can’t laugh at the absurdity of this thing we call life, well, we might end up on a suicide site. Wait…

FarahLajeenNourAlDeen 5/27/2017 - 5:39 pm

we’r already there I’m afraid
😀

PhotographyIsMyLife 5/27/2017 - 5:40 pm

This is not a “feeling down” post. This is a “I am fucking pissed off” post…But this is still funny.

SweetQuietus 5/27/2017 - 5:41 pm

Farah told a joke! 😀

midian monster 5/27/2017 - 5:44 pm

even farah’s kicking back tonight, a stogy in hand saying ‘this is all bollocks’ 🙂

FarahLajeenNourAlDeen 5/27/2017 - 5:44 pm

Yup 😀
suicide aside
the sense of humor I find here is just contagious 😀

midian monster 5/27/2017 - 5:49 pm

Chip, what the hell have you started here? lol
One sentence and mass hysteria has gripped SP

FarahLajeenNourAlDeen 5/27/2017 - 5:58 pm

😀 😀 😀 😀 😀

SweetQuietus 5/27/2017 - 5:43 pm

Oh, and Farah: I am sorry for secretly suspecting you of trying to lure children into a sex trafficking trade. I’m 60% sure you’re pretty sincere.

midian monster 5/27/2017 - 5:45 pm

????
This thread just took the darkest turn lmao

SweetQuietus 5/27/2017 - 5:47 pm

I couldn’t understand why she was desperately trying to befriend every suicidal kid on SP. Being sullied, I suspected a darker motive. Just keepin’ it real.

FarahLajeenNourAlDeen 5/27/2017 - 5:51 pm

yeah midian

I had the privilege of making the “sweetest” conversation with SweetQuietus on my “very first day here”

within which she clearly told me that she’s suspecting I’m a “wolf in sheep’s clothes”

Quite a greeting I tell you 😀

No hard feelings though… I get where u’r coming from

SweetQuietus 5/27/2017 - 5:53 pm

Yeah, these kids have some really difficult backstories and are lonely and vulnerable. I get a little protective. I had my eye on you, Farah. LOL.

FarahLajeenNourAlDeen 5/27/2017 - 5:57 pm

rightfully so…
it’s okay 🙂

FarahLajeenNourAlDeen 5/27/2017 - 5:46 pm

OH MY GOD
Is that what you thought?!!

Goshhhh
:O

I’m SO shocked that I’m actually still laughing 😀

SweetQuietus 5/27/2017 - 5:48 pm

There are some very sick people out there.
Glad you’re not one of them.

SweetQuietus 5/27/2017 - 5:48 pm

I think.

midian monster 5/27/2017 - 5:52 pm

Holy shit SQ, i thoght i was a paranoid conspiracy guy, but you????? fucking hell lol

FarahLajeenNourAlDeen 5/27/2017 - 5:53 pm

It’s okay 🙂
I’m hoping that in time
the 60% could gradually move closer to a 100

SweetQuietus 5/27/2017 - 5:54 pm

It was moving to 70% until you said that. Now you’re back to 55%. 😉

FarahLajeenNourAlDeen 5/27/2017 - 5:56 pm

hmmm
it feels like I’m back to school exams 😀

PhotographyIsMyLife 5/27/2017 - 5:58 pm

Not trying to be a sour bastard, but has anyone heard from that 13-yo who wrote a suicide note yesterday

SweetQuietus 5/27/2017 - 6:00 pm

Well, at least I’m honest.
Seriously, I’m relieved that you seem to really have an indefatigable heart for their suffering.

FarahLajeenNourAlDeen 5/27/2017 - 6:00 pm

@PhotographyIsMyLife
Sadly no 🙁

I know u’r probably beating urself up over this
I followed ur conversation on his very first post

U did really great…

FarahLajeenNourAlDeen 5/27/2017 - 6:02 pm

@SweetQuietus
I’m 100% sure I never heard/read “indefatigable” before in my entire life
but thanks 😀 🙂

midian monster 5/27/2017 - 6:06 pm

SQ say’s that much complicated (and controversial) things, that i have to have a dictionary and thesaurus by my side every time i log on.

SweetQuietus 5/27/2017 - 6:08 pm

MidMon: good idea, because I now make up words if i can’t remember them.

FarahLajeenNourAlDeen 5/27/2017 - 6:09 pm

@PhotographyIsMyLife

to be honest though
[& I’m hoping this will bring you some comfort]

I don’t think he ever intended to do anything

Not saying it was a prank or that he’s bad or anything

I just think he was in great need for attention[not in a bad way] / people to show that they care

& that this is why there was this daily ultimatum post “I’m gonna do it”

I know I might very well be wrong
I’ve only been here less than a week

but there was just something “missing” in his posts
u know

I did not feel that he was really “suffering” or really thinking about ending it

Just a 13 yr old who wants to know that if he goes out & says he’s gonna harm himself, people are gonna care & will try to prevent him
[& I could never blame him for that]

which is exactly what u & what we all did 🙂
I think that’s why he posted the Goodbye post

He had enough of what he [needingly] came here for… which is okay

Please don’t think I’m a heartless person for saying that 🙁

midian monster 5/27/2017 - 6:12 pm

The mad thing is, you’re one of those people who is usually right, so when and if you decide to talk utter nonsense, we will still be nodding our head in agreement.

SweetQuietus 5/27/2017 - 6:14 pm

We can’t really be certain that people are feeling the way they say, or that they are who they say, but you are right to give the benefit of the doubt.

FarahLajeenNourAlDeen 5/27/2017 - 6:18 pm

😀
not nonsense midian 😀

PhotographyIsMyLife knows what i’m talking about

there was this 13 yr old boy who’d post once everyday for 3 days
simply saying something along the lines of “I’m gonna do it”

& everyone would just run & try to stop him… 🙂

I sent him the longest comment ever explaining to him in steps how he can overcome the simple problems he claimed to have

then the fourth day he said “nope, not workin for me, sorry guys, u just keep goin maybe it will work for others, chaow”

I mean u just don’t say something like that in ur last goodbye note right?
😀

FarahLajeenNourAlDeen 5/27/2017 - 6:20 pm

still though i wrote him that i’m hoping he’s okay 🙂

midian monster 5/27/2017 - 6:25 pm

I get what your saying. But like SQ says, we don’t know who they are. It could be real, it could be 40 year old plumber called steve.
You did right in offering support. I wished i could have done the same, but honestly, i am not good at that sort of thing. I would have tried to bring a little levity to the situation and i know i would have probably ballsed it up.
I really hope they are ok though.

SweetQuietus 5/27/2017 - 6:30 pm

Yeah, listen to me, ’cause I’ve got all the answers!?!? !
And stop blowing my cover, Linda the lobster farmer!

FarahLajeenNourAlDeen 5/27/2017 - 6:32 pm

😀

@midian
you would have made us all burst in unstopable laughter
I’m sure of it 😀 😀 😀

midian monster 5/27/2017 - 6:37 pm

SQ: who the fuck elected me spokesman?
Well, you may not have wanted this job, but you got it mate.
Between you and Chip, we’ve got leadership i can believe in.
Hope and change mate.
Just googled that, and the first result say’s ‘this site may be hacked’
I love the internet.

SweetQuietus 5/27/2017 - 6:40 pm

Well, MidMon, you may’s well call me Steve, now that you blew my gasket (plumber’s joke) and I may’s well call you Linda.
Leadership? God everyone’s fucked! No leave that to SeeSmith and some of the long-timers, tried and true. I’m going soon

SeeSmith 5/27/2017 - 7:00 pm

Jesus Horatio Christ, stop using my name in vain, *especially* at the bottom of long threads.

midian monster 5/27/2017 - 6:45 pm

Allright Steve, as always, it has been great talking with you, you too Farah.
If you want to talk to me again, just ask for Linda, they know who i am.
regards
L

SweetQuietus 5/27/2017 - 6:46 pm

Sorry i just kinda crapped all over that, Linda. Forgot to wear my filter today.
tty soon.

FarahLajeenNourAlDeen 5/27/2017 - 6:51 pm

😀
Good day midian 🙂

SweetQuietus 5/27/2017 - 7:04 pm

Smitty, you sneaky demigod.

SweetQuietus 5/27/2017 - 6:04 pm

Tireless

SweetQuietus 5/27/2017 - 6:05 pm

That was to Farah

FarahLajeenNourAlDeen 5/27/2017 - 6:10 pm

🙂

PhotographyIsMyLife 5/27/2017 - 6:21 pm

Thanks…as did you. Yeah, that one really hurts. I don’t know if it’s because I have a kid a few yrs older than him who went through a lot. Maybe because I could relate to some of what he’s going through. Thirteen is a miserable age for a lot of kids. And I hadn’t been on the past few days…yeah, maybe I could have changed mind. And too many kids feel like this.

FarahLajeenNourAlDeen 5/27/2017 - 6:40 pm

@PhotographyIsMyLife
Any time 🙂

no worries… I’ll put it in SQ’s words
I think
there’s at least a 60% chance that this kid’s posts were not as alarming as they seemed to be

I have my own ghost too you know…
a 15 year old girl

the first one I ever spoke to here
so kind
& so innocent

her words broke my heart 🙁
I kept on writing her for a whole day… I literally slept on the keyboard

& she replied & said thanks & said she wanted to talk more
& I welcomed that very much

then 2 days of utter silence

then the saddest, most heart breaking post in the “suicide note” section
then nothing

I comment there every day
still nothing

I just can’t stop thinking about her
& I really don’t understand
she seemed to have really taken in all what I wrote her
& i thought I lifted up her spirits just enough for her not to go

🙁

I swear I dream about her
even though I never saw her
🙁

PhotographyIsMyLife 5/27/2017 - 6:43 pm

@Farah Heartless? Hell no. I’d be a liar if I said I hadn’t thought of it being a prank. But you just can’t think like that…

PhotographyIsMyLife 5/27/2017 - 6:45 pm

@Farah I’m so sorry.

FarahLajeenNourAlDeen 5/27/2017 - 6:49 pm

🙁
I just pray she’s okay
& that maybe she just needed a break from all this

thank you…

PhotographyIsMyLife 5/27/2017 - 7:05 pm

Anytime.

FarahLajeenNourAlDeen 5/27/2017 - 7:34 pm

Talking about her made me feel like wanting to read her posts again & just stare at them in melancholy…

Weirdest Thing Just Happened !!!!

Her first post got updated !!!

PhotographyIsMyLife 5/27/2017 - 8:16 pm

By her? Really?

FarahLajeenNourAlDeen 5/27/2017 - 11:01 pm

Yes yes yes
By her !!!!!

She’s alive 🙂 🙂 🙂

I talked to her… finallyyyyyyyy 🙂
I am so grateful to God right now

you have no idea…

check “thank you for making me hesitate”

God… I’m over the moon right now 🙂

PhotographyIsMyLife 5/27/2017 - 11:22 pm

Man…I am so fucking happy…for her…for you. And excuse me SweetQuietus, but: 110% 🙂
But as happy as I am…I just heard on the news, a local girl drowned in our lake. Just 18. Probably graduated Friday. Goddam it. But even with all that I am still really happy that girl responded. Great stuff!

FarahLajeenNourAlDeen 5/27/2017 - 11:32 pm

I’m really sorry to hear that 🙁
May God give her family the strength & patience to pull through this 🙁

I guess that’s how life is…
Did you ever think about the fact that there’s a constant traffic of souls coming in & leaving this planet ?

I mean we look at individual cases & feel joy or grief [rightfully so]

but I mean, in the big picture, this is just something that is Constantly happening… it’s almost as steady as breathing

wow… I’m getting really philosophical right now 🙂

Thank you though 🙂

PhotographyIsMyLife 5/28/2017 - 7:32 am

More than welcome, Farah. And you make a fine philosopher!

rivets 5/27/2017 - 11:05 pm

I forgive you, my child. Now if you’ll excuse me, it’s time for communion.

Morris 5/27/2017 - 11:19 pm

This thread has inspired me to join a dating site where I identify myself as “a 40 year old plumber named Steve”.

Oh yeah. I’m pulling Gato with this facade.

PhotographyIsMyLife 5/27/2017 - 11:24 pm

…brother of Joe Six Pack? 😉

midian monster 5/28/2017 - 7:57 am

Trouble is Morris, you’ll probably get asked to exchange your talents for a ‘freebie’
Well, things could get awkward real fast man.

Morris 5/27/2017 - 11:30 pm

Joe Six-pack is fun to hang around with, but I doubt mom would approve if I brought them home.

PhotographyIsMyLife 5/28/2017 - 7:30 am

Read some of your posts, Morris…you sound like a rebel. 🙂

SweetQuietus 5/27/2017 - 11:39 pm

PIML: re: Farah, Yup! Solid.

FarahLajeenNourAlDeen 5/27/2017 - 11:45 pm

PhotographyIsMyLife 5/28/2017 - 7:40 am

Mighty fine group of people you all are. Truly awesome.

FarahLajeenNourAlDeen 6/7/2017 - 10:09 am

Hi
i’m not quite sure
but
I think your 13 year old reincarnated 😀
different username
new story

check the most recent post named “goodbye”
check the poster’s other posts too
he stayed for only 2 days unfortunately

I talked to him by email
really really cute despite all the loopholes 🙂

I kept it serious though
& convinced him that he need not worry about the things he mentioned
& gave him solid solutions
then, like last time
“thank you for trying, but not working for me, i’ll pray for you, good bye”

perhaps he’ll reincarnate again… 🙂

PhotographyIsMyLife 6/14/2017 - 8:37 am

Yeah…I saw the post thanks. Never got past the “wanna talk?” stage. My life has been crazy recently.
