Phew! I’ve just arrived back from a very tiresome LAN. It was tons of fun I’ll say that much, it started on Friday, and went through to late afternoon Sunday. I bailed out a bit earlier on Saturday evening; I thought giving me a day to recover would help. Well now I have the lovely job of sorting through all the stuff I got there. 😀 I’ll Say more about this later on when I have photographic proof.
Today I’ll briefly share something I got at the LAN. You should see it below:
This made me laugh my ass off, seriously it’s funny! I’m always one for parody, and this one just seemed to hit my buttons. It got me thinking about Heroism. I know (thinking back to the movie 300) that it creates a warm feeling inside, when you know that good is going to win, despite the odds. But I’ve got to be a cynic. Isn’t Heroism just Glorified Stupidity? I mean if I saw a whole army coming into where I lived, and about to rape our women and children, murder a few, make slaves of us…you know the deal. I wouldn’t say something like “Sure, go for it.” I’d probably scream, and say something like “We’re all going to die! AAAAHHHH, lets get the fuck OUTTA HERE!”
I don’t mind standing up for my own ideals, but to know that you’re not going to win. I’m sure some heroes go into a situation thinking “yeah there’s a bit of a chance I’ll come through…I’ll do it.” That I don’t mind…if someone else does it obviously. Then you’ll get a blundering Leonidas who’ll stand up to save what is precious to him (at all costs). I admire him, I mean heck, someone’s gotta do it.
Look I’m glad we’ve heroes and legends to look up to, I’m also glad there’s plenty jobs to go around to Nationalists. (The I’m-standing-up-for-my-principles people.)
Later fellow Spartans…
