I'm a cynic... I'm a critic. I see that the world would often improve if people just lived and let live. Most meddling leads to more hurt.
I'm a nihilist... I'm a relativist. I adapt quickly and easily and feel comfortable with most outcomes.
I am optimistic, cynical, and nihilistic
Since a couple people have asked about the suspension pictures, here's a little blurb: Suspending hurt more than any other masochistic activity I've done, though friends who have gotten branded said that hurts even more. About five minutes after I first lifted off the ground, my body started going into shock. The suspension team saw what was happening, fed me a sugar pill and wrapped me in a blanket. I went back up in the air soon after and swung around for about 40 minutes overlooking the campfire. It was beautiful, exhilarating, and extremely intense. Later suspensions have been much more relaxed and, though always intense, my body now knows what to expect and does not try to go into shock. In addition to suicide suspensions, I've also suspended in superman style in a warehouse, in tandem facing my girlfriend suigyoku, and my latest suspension was a crucifixion for "Easter".
