This is a question Random Acts of Evil

Mr Twisty Cheeky asks: As a contrast to last week's question - Has anyone ever been evil to you, out of the blue, for no reason? Have you ever been total twuntcake against all logic?

A treatise on Karma.
Now I like Jason Lee (don't really know who Carson Daley is) as much as the next bloke but "Do good things and good things will happen to you" or vice versa has a lot to answer for.

"Do as you would be done by" is a pretty old concept and is pretty self explanatory.
Karma is a little bit older and a little bit more complex.
In a nutshell (any Buddhists feel free to correct me) - if you live a good life according to the scriptures (you're generally not a cunt, and try to better yourself if you are) and/or achieve(?) enlightenment then when you die you will move up the chain of command and repeat ad infinitum until you reach nirvana (heaven?) and the reverse is true whereby if you are just a cunt then you'll keep coming back as a cockroach (or at least the type of person who writes "So your story is...") until you get stepped on.

This concept of "instant karma" is just a dodgy ver. of "Do as you would be done by" with a little bit of an incentive that people *might* be nice back (this in the real world I have found to be mostly untrue - there is a reason that many filthy rich people are wankers).

Thus if you want Karma, live life according to how Buddha suggested it. If you want to do as you would be done by then by all means do so but expect that the cunts will still be cunts towards you.
If you expect a payoff for doing good deeds then you are in the wrong game I'm afraid.

Secretly I love him and wish that I lived in the UK so I could stalk him and steal him away from WW. Shh, don't tell anyone.

You've done nothing to me AB. Except make me angry.
Don't make me angry. You wouldn't like it if I got angry.
