    I'm sure when the three of you are the only ones bickering, you think the disease is all dandy.

    Maybe Rox has something about your reading comprehension, as I've already stated that I wasn't referring to the necroing of threads.

    I like the irony here, since all you contribute are random posts with little to no content beyond a directed flame or useless comment. Good job on contributing.



    EDIT: And Woden, nice gay joke, really had to dig deep for that one, huh?

    There are plenty of threads not focused on me, and I'm fine with it. I don't care where the attention is focused, as long as it's not useless bickering, ad nauseum. And as many have seen and left, it comes down to a **** storm of Rox and others that take threads and turn them into cesspools.

    Though, gotta love that your only fall back is that "Sapient loves attention!"

    Especially, since most of your Skype posts revolves around "Look at me!" "Look at the raunchy stuff I post!" "Give me attention seeking reactions from the stuff I post!" And "Let's troll so and so to see their reaction and get attention."

    It's literally your entire ego that seems to be focused on this forum. Not to mention the multitude of crying and *****ing that I hear that has to do with this forum, its modding, its members, or something thereof.

    I don't understand. If you all dislike each other so much, why do you spend so much time talking to each other on here?

    Riiiight. "Here's my internet speed!" "Check out my eye!!" "Here's my XBox gamer tag!" "I want to have sex with this guy" "Hey look what I found, 5m4llP0X!" Totally not focused on you.

    Then why else are you wasting time on the aforementioned threads PLUS THE NECROING.

    You pulled me into that stupid skype chat and even kept adding me back when I left. I send random **** from Imgur to people quite often, so don't feel special.

If a person can kill and **** dead women can evade the police and the world for 8 years calls for some acknowledgement. Of course, it was a bad thing to do, but he did this for 8 years.

    Considering the number of unsolved murders* in the US and Canada, avoiding identification and arrest may not be such an unusual thing.

    For Canada, just google "missing and murdered sisters" for an example
    And now I'll tell you what's against us, an art that's lived for centuries. Go through the years and you will find what's blackened all of history. Against us is the law with its immensity of strength and power - against us is the law! Police know how to make a man a guilty or an innocent. Against us is the power of police! The shameless lies that men have told will ever more be paid in gold - against us is the power of the gold! Against us is racial hatred and the simple fact that we are poor.

    Now this begs the question whether the psychopaths and killers are so smart or if North American police are incompetent ... Latter seems to make more sense ...

    It makes him a freak, sure. But even if you consider his success impressive for some weird reason, that had to do with intelligence. Not the psycopath tag.

    There is nothing weird about his success. A person who kills women and practices necrophilia afterwards doesn't deserve a psychopath tag? Man, you need to do some research

    The point isn't whether or not Bundy is a psychopath.
    The point is if you accept that Bundy is a psychopath, and you accept that Bundy is intelligent, it does not follow that therefore all psychopaths are intelligent.
    In fact, psychopathy has not been shown to be an indicator of intelligence. What it has been linked to is an obsession with planning. This obsession with planning might mean that a psychopath could indeed plan to beat a psych evaluation, but only if they were actually aware of their condition before said evaluation.

    I agree with you, completely. All Im saying is that most successful psychopaths are intelligent.

    Right. The successful ones usually are. But psychopaths are not special by virtue of being psycopaths. It requires other things such as intelligence and patience for them to succeed.

    I think you'll find that most successful people are intelligent (at least in the sense of being above-average relative to those around them), so I'm not sure why you are acting like this is some grand revelation.

    It could be because the rate of success (measured by seniority) is higher for psychopaths than non-psychopaths. CEOs of top companies have way more psychopaths than the general population. One in five by some counts (not saying I believe it). It doesn't mean they are smarter, but it DOES mean they are more likely to succeed. But that is because that part of society has valued some of their traits quite highly.
    I'm glad I'm not judgemental like all you smug, superficial idiots

    Not so much "valued" but "allowed to thrive". I don't think any corporation likes internal backstabbing, deception, or other thing that contribute to hostile work environments. They would, however, be all for regarding people as numbers.
