Nipple Peak, Antartica.

As a young man I passed up the opportunity to go to both poles. I ask myself now, what percentage of the world population has seen them? I really regret it.

Make me a proud and happy man, Niinimaki and Phillips!

What a transparent prick to pick the opposites. You're just an attention whore trolling at every post.

Ill stick with believing you just wanted to carp on his selfless act to support wrestling.

It's just another one his typical ingenious (  ::) ) off topic two cents worth contribution. Chalk it up to: you get what you paid for.

How to Identify Self Absorbed People

Self-centered people are easy to identify but difficult to handle. They love to talk, mainly about themselves, and can be quite dismissive about the point of view of others.

Absorbed by their grandiosity, they look down on others with an air of superiority that is frequently displayed in the way they behave toward them with a "holier than thou" attitude.


This type of person is also defined by others as being incredibly annoying. We have all dealt with them in our personal relationships, brief acquaintances, in the work place, and on the streets.

Self-Centeredness and its Roots in Narcissism

What makes self-centered behaviors so annoying to others is that they indicate a total disregard for the other person's opinion, value, or existence.

It appears that it's uncomfortable for self-centered people to be attentive for more than five minutes before they draw attention back to themselves to make their point which they believe to be correct.

These behaviors may have their roots in certain behavioral or personality traits that influence how the self-centered person approaches his/her environment and interacts with others.

These traits loosely fall under the definition for Narcissistic Personality which may involve a cluster of traits or a clinical diagnosis of a personality disorder. This can produce behaviors that affect the individual's ability to have healthy social interactions and close personal relationships.

Narcissistic Personality Disorder is said to possibly be a result of overly indulgent parenting styles. They include but are not limited to the following list of traits and characteristics:

-Self-absorption
-Excessive self-love
-Need for admiration and/or fame
-Lack of empathy or concern for others
-Unrealistic sense of entitlement
-Demanding
-Manipulative
-Vanity and pre-occupation with appearance
-Self-assured cockiness

Unfortunately, it is difficult to contend with a self-centered person whose behavior is most likely related to imbedded traits of their personality that may not easily change.

It is well-known in the field of psychology that most personality disorders are not easy to treat.

Therefore, we are left to maneuver around or tolerate the annoying behaviors of those with whom we interact in our personal lives, work settings, or in public.

Off-Topic / Re: Coach Sparky's atheism thread.

Well it's good to see that while I've been off the board nothing has changed. Since I am an atheist and that seems to be what this thread is supposed to be about, I'd like to express my opinion. While I BELIEVE that a supreme being does not exist and everything that we as humans perceive can be explained by scientific investigation, I do not KNOW if I am right or wrong and really, no one KNOWS if God exists or not. In all the discussions I have witnessed or participated in regarding religion, no one has ever convinced anyone to change their mind. This is because the existence of God cannot be proved or disproved. It is a matter of faith. I would love to find that I am wrong and that when I die I will be reunited with deceased loved ones, but I simply can't believe this. Since no one returns from the dead (near-death experiences notwithstanding), we will never know the "truth." I am not offended by those who believe differently than I do. I am only offended by those who tell me that I am wrong or by those who want to control my live via legislation based on their religious beliefs.That's about it, and I hope I haven't offended anyone or participated in any personal attacks.

Reported!  :)

I won't rechew that fat. I know how to deal with troublesome community members and your past and current behavior would get you on a zero tolerance list. You'd get tired if bouncing your connections for new non-public IPs and creating new profiles and email emails that you'd come into voluntary compliance or move on. Either the board wins. Just my opinion.

Coachsparky's continued childishness is so high maintenance that if I were an admin I'd permanently ban his profile.
I'd monitor the IP and any new profiles linked to it I'd ban too.

That would only leave him the alternative to bounce his connection and reassign a new IP then create a new profile.
If he follows the rules with it then he has no problems. The very first violation I'd ban him again. He'd either modify his childish ways or move on where a new site will tolerate it.

Thanks for the site. Interesting edgy style.

I was turned off by the Wednesday comic though. It's a rip off of Saint Young Men.

I understand someone tweeted, "How many goals is Germany going to score, a Brazilian?"

I think it's obvious what you're doing coachsparky.  You're trying to walk the line of the rules to spite them. You're basically flipping off Ray and V as well as the community members.

Your recent topics are veiled attempts to continue to thwart the rules.  They are designed to cause argument or to irritate people than to contribute to a constructive discussion.  In my opinion they should be treated as baited troll posts.

You may be the most childish adult I've ever come across on these boards.  It's no surprise you've been banned before. It is my opinion your posting style here has worn out its welcome.

While Ray and V can not control your behavior they do have control over what they will tolerate. I hope they don't suffer this behavior much longer.

Iron Butterfly, meh. Rambling picks, tedious monotonous drums, and a vocal who lacked the range of tonal color necessary to be interesting and distinct.  8)

Here's another thread that has outlived any usefulness and probably should be moved to a wasteland.

There's a childish pattern developing.

And another thread that's run it's course and worthy of being locked.
