You get back what you put in  
I worry about what people I have never met think of me, judging from my online persona.

I find myself in some storm-in-a-teacup argument and wonder if the other person thinks I'm a real jerk.
They probably do, but why am I in the argument in the first place?
Because I voiced an opinion, they disagreed, I disagreed back-- that's an argument right?
There's nothing wrong with a good argument, some people pay to have them, but why take things personally?

I feel that livejournal is like a big mirror, what people say to each other is a reflection of the previous comment.

If you argue with me, I argue back.
If you say "nice icon", I say "nice icon" back (or just "thanks" if your icon has Justin Timberlake on it).
If you ask a stupid question, you get a stupid answer.

Sometimes I'm a little more sarcastic than I should be, but, geez, look at the title of the journal.
Oh, wait, I changed that.

Anyway, I just wish people would keep their sense-of-humour on full alert before they read any comments, rather than their sense-of-moral-objection.
Look for humour first, then look for offense.

yeah your icons are awesome.. very amusing.
maybe your journal should just have a big sign that says, "People without a sense of humor.. can just go away, now". Or maybe not, but it would make me laugh.

My journal seems to thrive on chaos.
I change my icon themes regularly.
I have gone through:

famous men in glasses
picture of me
pop cultural icons with amusing text
photoshopped pictures of my face on actresses bodies
a can of spam

Evidence of the last three can all be seen on my picture page.
Sometimes my journal's layout/theme/title has changed to match, somtimes not.
My current layout is a magnificently ugly spam theme.

Oh, and anyone is welcome to read my journal and comment, but must be willing to subject themselves to my sarcasm.

Maybe you should do something about the blue text on blue background part of the theme. x_x

Anyway, I love arguments actually, but it annoys me when people leave them unresolved. They're opportunities to learn things, dammit!

This is a warning to everyone, if I argue with you and you suddenly decide you have a head ache, therefore ending the argument. I WILL ARGUE MORE!!! There's nothing I hate more than excuses that are just conjured up because someone's afraid of being proven wrong. If you have a head ache, I need to hear about it before the argument.

I can't take a side on an issue until I've heard a strong argument from both sides. I think that's why I can't be completely atheist. I've yet to hear a sane argument that actually justifies the existence of God (and seeing as the form of God is so vague, it can be adapted to work with any scientific discovery that will ever be made, and is therefore impossible to disprove).

It's black on blue - but can anyone come up with a better colour that will show up on both blue and yellow?

I don't know, Troi's face on my body would be a sight to behold.
