Troll Temptation

I have to admit, I see so much crap on the internet that I’d love to reply to. From people saying and commenting stupid stuff on YouTube, to influencer fails on Instagram, to ludicrous asking prices on rentals or furniture for sale on Craigslist and much much more. I’m so tempted to create a troll account to bust these people's chops (for the greater good) but then I start to think that it would only bring a whole bunch of negative energy into my life and I’d end up spending hours a day replying to brainless idiots. I might as well take that energy and put it into something that inspires me and create a healthier life for myself.

I've done it, you're right, it's not worth it. The "greater good" turns out is not so great, it's the shrinking good. Keep your soul, run in the opposite direction from anywhere those parasites are.

Heartily agree

We can greatly enhance the quality of our own lives just by blocking all the crappy stuff, like toxic people and negative, self-defeating ideas from entering it. Ditto with junk food. Healthy body promotes a healthy mind.

I know what you're trying to say

But first let me tell you about biscuits. I love biscuits, and especially the biscuits my grandmother used to make. We'd all be playing in the backyard and she'd hollar out the window that the biscuits were ready and we'd all come a running across the yard to get those tasty treats. Mmm Mmm... were they good.It was all in the way she made the dough. If she didn't knead the dough enough the biscuits were a little bit chewy. And if she worked the dough too much the biscuits became tough too eat. And nobody likes tough biscuits. About your post again, what were you saying?

Buy and sell cars, and always got the type who'd offer 60% of the regular value, usually from in Surrey. They just want to low ball, then turn around and sell it for much higher. I'd always sell it first and then then tell them I lived in West Vancouver, to make them drive across the GVRD, for being jerks.

Every time I want to respond to comments on political pages, I shut my lap top and go for a walk. My feet are sore from how many miles I've walked recently.
