My new philosophy with life and people "might wanna read it"

you know, i have lived my life a certain way the last few years and i think i am done with it. tierd of being the dada figure and preaching or giving advise to others that i/we might not do ourselfs even though we know better BUT we choose not to. with that being said. i am gonna start living by this creed:




Live life the way you want, but deal with the circumstances you bring upon yourself.

Life is like a box of chocolates. If you leave it on your dashboard in the summer you're gonna get some melted candy and have to clean it up which will take a long time when you'd rather be playing video games or riding your new bicycle or playing doctor with the cute neighbor girl who's mom gave you that damn box of chocolates in the first place.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

assuming that you're refering to shedding your paternal roles with members and not the artistic movement. I think that it'll be good for you to free yourself and not feel responsible for everything and everyone, ride your ride, live your live

Ken - I don't understand what's going to change. Could you give an example of something that you're not going to do anymore? I mean, what you're talking about is an attitude, a value system. Those things run deep into our characters and don't necessarily change. I know you're frustrated with some recent events, but saying that you're just not going to care anymore is, well, pretty unbelievable to me.

i think this is good bro, i mean it is something reasonable and what one is able to live consistently with, which is important. the key is for each individual to also hold themself responsible for his/her behavior, then things would be swell (assuming most people are reasonable...)

That's the way it should be Ken, everyone is their own man.
That's basically the way I was raised, learn from your own mistakes, and I've learned a lot over the short time I've been on this earth.

I think some of you are missing the point about STOP BEING A DUMBASS on the board or your ass is gonna get booted. Mr. Nice Guy's tolerance threshold has been exceeded and he's polishing up the steel toed boots.

Everybody understand that?

Thank you....carry on

nahh not really ernie, i am just talking about how i handle people on the board.
which means, people doing dumb shit, to me giving personal advise about say "EXAMPLE" dont speed, we all speed cause we choose to, so even if i suggest it to someone. doesnt mean that have to do it, it means they make there own choice to or not to do it, just live with what ever you bring upon yourself.

i am done being mr. suggestion of good will when others look to me to set an example, like i said 1 billion times before.

i am suggesting, do NOT follow my example, sure we all know whats right and wrong, but we all choose "including me" to do it or not, and I like everyone else fess up to your own shit! and deal with the crap you started.

so anyway, bla bla over

I'm not exactly sure what Ken is saying, but I think it's if he tells you one thing, and HE does something different, it doesn't mean the information he gave you isn't good, it just means he's trying something different and if you try to follow his lead, and something happens, DON'T GO BLAMING HIM!!!

Okay for example (sorry Ken a little thread hijacking ) if I was following Ken and one of his rides (I know, I know...it's highly unlikely, cause Ken and the heavy Kawi couldn't keep ahead of lightweight Rick and his little beaten up Fizzer) and I crashed, I wouldn't blame Ken, cause I made the choice of zipping along an unknown road, viceversa if Ken was one of my runs and I was leading (I know, I know, this is just example folks, Ken would never crash on one of my rides, cause me and the beaten up fizzer would lose Ken and the heavy Kawi on the first turn, and Ken would be stopping at every corner, lost, trying to listen the incredible whine of my rubber band motor, to figure which way I had gone) and Ken crashed, it wouldn't be MY fault that Ken made the vain attempt of trying to keep up with the incredible power of the fizzer and my superior skills.


Okay back to your regular programmed thread.


Ken.....just thought you needed a good laugh bro

Sometimes goodbye is your second chance.
