I used to be a pessimist, but then I got pessimistic about being a pessimist.

I was once pessimistic about being a pessimist but my optimism for it convinced me to revert.

Side: Why, yes..., yes I am ;)

I actually am told by my friends that I am a major optimist because I will only look for the good in any situation.

Enlighten me, optimist, as to where the good is in the following scenario:

An enraged lesbian gorilla has broken into your house and starts violently face-sitting you and you begin to almost suffocate bar the few times when your nostrils are free to breathe. Then when you've finished licking her out and she squirts into your mouth a male gorilla comes in and rips the head of all your family by slowly plucking at it and you hear their spine snap, disc by disc until their entire neck-spine has been torn ont he inside and finally the entire head is ripped as they scream with their decapitated voice-box. Then the gorillas hump one another and pull out the nukes that they'd left outside and blow your whole city up but somehow you survive as a trapped ghost there for all eternity and beyond.

P.S. You felt every bit of you blowing up beforehand.

Well I would be happy that they got to do what they wanted. I probably should have chosen a better area to live in because I wouldve had no guess that a gorilla would break in. So that would be my fault. If I were a ghost I could explore things and study the stars further so I guess I would just be a lucky astronomer. Also if I felt every bit of the blast I would be the only person to truly know. So when more humans evolve over millions of years I will tell them all I know and become the ruler of that planet.

Being an optimist is not just looking forward to good in the future, it is also about recognizing the silver linings in the present.

But when you have a dick as small as yours there is no silver lining.

Why yes, most unfortunately I am. I wish ever so greatly not to be an optimist, for it can truly be a ghastly state of mind: Always thinking something or another is going to turn out in one's favor, when indubitably one's hopes are going to be ravaged. Ah, but to be a pessimist: Wherefore am I not a pessimist? The adventures of my life thus far ought to have irreconcilably tainted me, yet still I maintain that unlikely belief that all shall turn out in my favor.

I ought to have learned not to trust the hustlers in that area the first time, but less than a week after being taken by a con - and oh god what a con it was! I didn't expect to spend 15 hours chatting with the guy just to be taken for thirty bucks - I am taken, yet again, by another. Still, though, if I were given another opportunity, my desire and my optimism would blind me, and I'd probably be conned again.

I'm probably more of an Optimist because I always look for the Silver lining in a situation but I always expect the worst to happen because that way I wont be dissapointed when everything goes Tits up but if it works out it'll be a nice surprise

Yeah I always hope for something better in the future.. like Heaven and stuff - even though I don't really believe there is a Heaven, I still kinda hope there is, I mean it sounds kinda nice though.

Side: Why, yes..., yes I am ;)

I do see the glass as half full. I frown upon pessimism. I do exhibit a good attitude always.

Side: Why, yes..., yes I am ;)

I'm a pessimist all the way ;)

I am a pessimist to the core of my demonic persona.

Side: I'm not stupid.

I am not an optimist because of my firm belief in Murphy's Law and All of it's corollaries.
