News Gossip Thread

Post by Luney on Thu Jun 16, 2016 7:23 am

I'm killing 2 flies with one hit here Smile  meaning I wanted to make a thread where we can  gossip on latest news and post links to any random late news articles we want to discuss, be it Hicks, Trump or Bieber Very Happy

Buuuuut, then again I wanted to talk about this article I happened to read yesterday and even though it's not much gossipy or late news and would most likely better fit under psychology section, I'm too lazy to find some gossip-worthy latest news and make 2 new threads hehe, so...
here's the article, but beware- it has a couple gory images of displays in haunted houses, so don't look if you get queasy, it's about the haunted houses people put up around Halloween where you can go in to get scared. http://thehustle.co/you-can-make-a-lot-of-money-scaring-people-for-a-living

The actual part of the article that I wanted to talk about was this-

And this seems to be the common thread backstage, the real reason people — from staff to Silicon Valley CEO’S — are attracted to this industry. By definition, if you are the scare, than you aren’t scared, and it’s oddly therapeutic to feel you’ve overcome that, even temporarily.

It made me think of that reverse psychology, maybe I should become a real aggressive driver with massive road rage in order to not fear the driving Laughing no, but really.... I can see it being the psychology behind many rude aggressive people's behavior and even the serial killers. If you are the predator then you feel fearless. So you suddenly feel in control and invincible.

Reminds me of when I was working in a pub in London and we used to get this  black guy come in at night, typical gangster style, he was always really aggressive and rude and always  gave me this angry stink eye. But something seemed different, he seemed to naturally have some kindness in his eyes, so it just looked like a mask. I told him one day- "You always look and act tough, but you don't fool me, I can see you are really a very nice guy." After that he was a completely different person, always super sweet to me, started always showing me the pictures of his baby son, smiling and so on. He did admit with his own words that life can make you act aggressive and hard in order to protect yourself from getting hurt and feeling fear.

Yes I think this is much more common than we think

We all have an image that we want to project out to the world, who we want to be seen as .. and who or what we are hiding behind.

Its actually very common to use humour aswell as being tough and scary.... people will be the joker or act more confident than they really are.

I guess its a bit of a safety net and a protective thing

I have always found with the loudest tough guys that want to appear as the confident player types that the hardest shells have the softest cores. I have a couple old coworkers that made it seem like they can get any woman with a snap of a finger and were completely self centered and careless when it comes to opposite sex. And I've seen both of them actually fall in love and have a serious relationship and then break up (probably because of their selfish cocky behavior) and both of them were completely heartbroken. I've never seen 2 guys be so shaking and lost and take a break up so hard as these 2. Hardest shells, softest cores nodding

What about guys who seem soft on the surface? Wink
Great story Luney--I love how you made that guy blossom. Yeah, I agree that often, people who seem very crabby, tough, cynical, etc. are just bruised by life and trying to protect themselves.


Hard shells, soft inside nodding

Very Happy

Guys that seem soft on the surface, to me always com across as either they're gonna be a bit clingy and needy

or they really are a decent guy who isnt afraid of his emotions so wears his heart on his sleeve, because he can deal with whatever

I honestly don't think it's necessary. Smile Of course, if people are keen then we can discuss, but there are plenty of other places to talk about Brexit and there is plenty of negativity surrounding it. We don't really want that negativity here and it is pleasant to not have political posts on the forum. Wink

Brexit or no Brexit, at the end of the day in the U.S. this is the high spirit of fortitude with which we regard the people of the U.K.:

Sorry I'm really lagging on so many threads (and especially the synchronicities one eeek!), but you don't sound like a cow at all Nighty Hearts if you would be a cow you would be my cuddly buddy-cow Wink


or maybe one of those really fluffy cute ones hmmm


To anyone that doesn't know yet I was just mostly curious about the whole thing, but I didn't realize it was such a gentle subject, so I apologize. But we have already discussed all the politics in fb chat extensively Very Happy so no need for any further political talk unless it's positive or neutral comments Razz

So has anyone been watching the Olympics?

I've been trying to watch as much as I can although all the good stuff is always on at like 2am, so I have to watch the catch ups later on.

Does anyone have a particular sport they love watching in the competition?

for me i love the Rowing and the Gymnastics and then the track events!" I keep missing Usain Bolts races!

I was totally gonna actually add a post about the Olympics here NE!  You beat me to it!

I've watched a little.  I am so impressed by the gymnast!  I am so proud of the women on the US team and the outstanding job they did!!  I was watching almost in disbelief when I saw the flips they can do, it doesn't even seem possible that a human is able to do that kind of thing!

I am also pretty amused by how random some of the events are.  I just learned today that trampolining is an event?  Who knew?!  Lol, isn't speedwalking/race walking also an event?  Haha, that always cracks me up, like how do they make the distinction between just walking fast and running?
