evil triumphs. 


when i was a kid, for some reason unknown to me, whenever i read comics, or watched cartoons, i hoped the bad guy would win.  may be it was the inherent evil in me or the dormant devil snoring, i don't know; but i wished for Skeletor to beat He-Man or Chamataka to kill Kalia. 





Not that i am a bad guy. 




half of you who must be reading this must have, by the few lines mentioned above, concluded that i am a sadist, BDSM loving, evil freak. 




hell, isn't everyone?
well, maybe not the BDSM part but i believe everyone IS a sadist and an evil freak.
we are, though; veering away from the topic.
evil triumphs. and I'm not trying to be the ubiquitous wannabe doomsayer, but have you ever wondered...




take any two adjectives, 
good x bad.
now make a two sentences, the first one having good at the start and the second one with bad coming before good.

1) he is good at being bad.
2) he is bad at being good.

what do both sentences imply?
that he is BAD.




another  example.
love x hate.

1) i love hating you.
2) i hate loving you.

basically i hate you.
evil.




still not satisfied?




Ok.




best x worst

1) he is best at being the worst.
2) he is the worst at being the best.





lets take the best.





happy x sad

1) he is happy about being sad.
2) he is sad about being happy.

so the man is sad.




i am not a cynic, or a pessimist or as said earlier, a doomsayer.
this was just a general observation, though some religious groups may decide to use this as a religious tenet and conduct extensive research on it. 




anyway, the point is that evil has always triumphed over its lesser brother, good; except in movies of course.




so tomorrow when you come back from a hard days work feeling low and shitty, you know who to blame.







don't ask me, you know who to blame.






what do you mean by who?









I'm not telling,







now THATS evil.

I love hating you and I hate loving you don't necessarily mean the same thing.that's cause i hate loving you doesn't mean i hate you..it just means that 'i hate myself for loving you/i love this feeling of loving you'

other than that,really profound observations...
nice piece..

ahh well thats a matter of perception again... to use the excuse of perceptions is quite insulting,and if i may add, juvenile even,but to say,'i hate loving you' would imply as you said, 'i hate the fact that i love', thereby infusing an element, the emotion of hate.

there's a typo error in my above comment...
[I love hating you and I hate loving you don't necessarily mean the same thing.that's cause i hate loving you doesn't mean i hate you..it just means that 'i hate myself for loving you/i "hate" this feeling of loving you']

yes,its true that 'i hate loving you' would imply as I said, 'i hate the fact that i love', thereby infusing an element, the emotion of hate.
but "the emotion of hate" ,in this context (however you might wish to perceive it),would be for oneself and not for the second person(as you've mentioned in your post...
phew....that's long......

and that is exactly when the matter of perception comes in. i, personally hate resorting to perception for it seems so much like a losing battle when you say it, however, under circumstances as such, when it is indeed the perception that counts, hate would be; 'according to me', the emotion being conveyed rather than 'the fact that i love you'.
