I love modern art!

(well not all - but saying "modern" is such a broad category).

This will come across as blasphemy but I don't.

Again, when it comes to art, I'll take thing around the Renaissance period.

I'm sorry no.

I can see it. I understand what others see in it. I really, really do. But the only response it evokes from me is a visceral negative attitude. Maybe that in and of itself is artistic as it doesn't leave me with no feeling, but I truly, just don't like it.

See what I worry about in terms of using that term too much is that I wonder if using the words itself brings more hatred towards the object in question.

Does using such a harsh word negatively damage your psyche?

Could hate be as subjective a word as love is? or as good is? There is no objective truth to what hate is or what it constitutes. And if you believe there is no such thing as an objective truth, rather all objective truths are in reality subjective, then using the word hate takes on a far more personal tone where judgment vanishes.

I guess that's my attitude to the word in question, or well all words in general. All words can damage a psyche not only a singular word. If a person for example was sexually abused for the majority of their life and the abuser used the word "tickled" does that word negatively damage a psyche or have the possibility to? Typically the word tickled has a positive undertone, but through conditioning could mean a negative tone.

See, entirely subjective.

I guess the true goal would be to abandon language all together.

Some people around here seem to be ahead of the curve with respect to that particular mentality.

mmmmm, ice-cream sundae day at school today. Best Day of school other than the first and last day of the year

I know, it surprised me to, but our whole school had to do procedural writing on how to make an ice-cream sundae.

-Better online servers, especially when playing team up mode it is laggy as hell and people always get disconnected.

-No players should be able to do a freakin' windmill facial dunk with like all 5 defenders guarding the paint.

-The game should focus more on making defense easier to play

-When playing online both players should be able to enter the start menu upon pressing pause.

-There are 3 different shots which players can use once they are under the basket which are impossible to block or 98 percent go in the basket no matter how hard you try to block them. These three shots should be eliminated since there not even used in real life.

-A lot of the time the basketball flys through my opponents bodies. This should be fixed because it makes it nearly impossible to play defense.
