To not derail the Everything's Great thread (which more or less turned into the Everything Sucks thread anyhow :facepalm: ), I bring you the Things That Make You Happy thread.

 

Before the commercial break, we learned that TrueNeutral gets his happy vibes from Red Pandas.

Now here is something that makes me happy, with the risk of people never looking at me the same way again:

 

 

So, hum. After I've just destroyed any credibility I had left on this forum, what makes you happy?

Never attribute to malice that which can adequately be explained by incompetence.

I am a very fortunate person as I am always in a good mood and happy...so its hard to mention one specific thing

Who would you agree with? Joey or Rachel? I'm squarely in Joey's camp.

 

THE MORNING'S HERE!

 

Definitely Rachel...how annoying to get woken up like that  :verymad:

  1. Hearing my wife laugh

Watching my dogs play

Baseball games on the radio

Fishing

Watching the sun set from my porch

Watching the stars from my porch

A really good cup of coffee

What about 

 

8. The primordial  thrill of eating the raw heart of the animal you have just killed on the hunt ( no need to be politically correct with us but I appreciate the sentiment )

It's been a while since I did that. I always found it was better when cooked! :lol:

Waking up and realizing I'm not dead.

Performing one repetition maximum weight powerlifts

Mountain climbing & mountain camping

Watching 12 and 24 hour motorsport endurance races on TV

Shooting tight groups with my rifles

Daydreaming about perfection 

Pushing my limits on my bicycle 

Nightly walks in near perfect dark

We may learn a lesson, and things may get better in the end…
So that’s the trade off…life experience for exhaustion… wisdom for innocence.
There may be a happy ending to our stories…
but we paid for that with little pieces of our souls and we will never get those back."

I know nothing about baseball or fishing. I am a cat-person and i am single. But i can still relate. Keep on living that dream of yours, because your post alone made me happy.

"Good thing I don't heal my characters or they'd be really hurt." Is not something I should ever be thinking.

sex, drugs, and variouse kinds of music

I'm the enemy, 'cause I like to think, I like to read. I'm into freedom of speech, and freedom of choice. I'm the kinda guy that likes to sit in a greasy spoon and wonder, "Gee, should I have the T-bone steak or the jumbo rack of barbecue ribs with the side-order of gravy fries?" I want high cholesterol! I wanna eat bacon, and butter, and buckets of cheese, okay?! I wanna smoke a Cuban cigar the size of Cincinnati in the non-smoking section! I wanna run naked through the street, with green Jell-O all over my body, reading Playboy magazine. Why? Because I suddenly may feel the need to, okay, pal? I've SEEN the future. Do you know what it is? It's a 47-year-old virgin sitting around in his beige pajamas, drinking a banana-broccoli shake, singing "I'm an Oscar Meyer Wiene"

To honestly answer the question, peace and quiet and my PC.

A weird inconsistent mix of things...

 

Seeing new places

Observing other people having that "Eureka!" moment when they realise something

Russ Meyer movies

Watching live performances (bands, theater, dance shows etc.)

Cats

Spending time with positive people every now and then (apropos Raithe's "Dr. Carmellas guide to introverts" post a while back)

Almost the opposite of the above, getting away from people when I need to relax and recover my wits.

Nice weather (the part of the world where i grew up has a notorious lack thereof, so it sort of stuck with me to really appreciate it when it isn't bad)

 

Edit: I thought about adding 'Coffee', but to be honest, coffee doesn't make me happy. Not having coffee makes me unhappy. Subtle but important difference.

Oh hai.

 

Is it just me or is there a lot of doom, gloom, rage, fear, whinge, OMG life sucks threads around... whistling.gif

 

Rather than open yet another whinge thread about that (which is good to see Jadedwolf has done), I thought I'd just comment to say it's all good, I'm looking forward to things, life is pretty awesome really, the beer's cold, the weather's not, and people in general are on the whole quite decent and often far more clever and interesting than they sound (except for some in the thread that I opened).

 

That's it, really. :)
