    I dont think this is accurate at all, I think if anything there's too many "hard" people around and its been made a cultural value to be "hard", as a consequence there's a lot of jerks around who think that being a jerk is an accomplishment and everyone should be like them, kids who're incapable of reasoning and just get huge affective reactions, which they cant handle and then resolve the conflict and internal turmoil with rage and violence, all the while demanding and feeling entitled to unearned respect.

    Its individually and socially deletarious, its also totally weak.

    How much can you know about yourself if you've never been in a fight.

    99% of people are not exciting.

    "I'm a rock climber!" yeah, what. Once a year?

    "I went skydiving!" No, you just fell with the actual skydiver you were strapped to and will probably never do so again in your life.

    I think I've decided that this is a first world problem and probably a middle class and up problem.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    I'm not talking about being a jerk I'm talking more about being adventurous and brave.

    Yes. Shits expensive and being bored is free.

    Not that I mind a little excitement now and then but knowing how to sit still for five minutes is also a virtue.

    Yeah, that and I know too many people that have to be badasses just to get through a normal day.
