Your fantasies of male masturbation are quite disturbing.
And you are posting while "out with friends".
People are going to believe you, really.
 
 
> Your lives are shit. Mine isn't. You pathetic bitches should just off yourselves.
 
 
 
DSM-5 criteria for narcissistic personality disorder include these features:
 
Having an exaggerated sense of self-importance
Expecting to be recognized as superior even without achievements that warrant it
Exaggerating your achievements and talents
Being preoccupied with fantasies about success, power, brilliance, beauty or the perfect mate
Believing that you are superior and can only be understood by or associate with equally special people
Requiring constant admiration
Having a sense of entitlement
Expecting special favors and unquestioning compliance with your expectations
Taking advantage of others to get what you want
Having an inability or unwillingness to recognize the needs and feelings of others
Being envious of others and believing others envy you
Behaving in an arrogant or haughty manner
Although some features of narcissistic personality disorder may seem like having confidence, it's not the same. Narcissistic personality disorder crosses the border of healthy confidence into thinking so highly of yourself that you put yourself on a pedestal and value yourself more than you value others.
 
When to see a doctor
 
When you have narcissistic personality disorder, you may not want to think that anything could be wrong -- doing so wouldn't fit with your self-image of power and perfection. People with narcissistic personality disorder are most likely to seek treatment when they develop symptoms of depression -- often because of perceived criticisms or rejections.

Tell me, you two nincompoops. How is it that you blabber on and on when Trump has a 400 delegate lead? Now I happen to know that Cruz may have something up his sleeve where he literally initiates a hostile takeover of the entire Republican convention. That would be truly astounding but you two versions of Dumb and Dumber have no idea of how that could even begin to take place so kindly take your seats and be quiet or else you BOTH will have to be sent to the nursery!

I was expecting Walton and Rambis to be in the hunt, but wasn't
expecting it to be this quick a deal as the Lakers hire Luke Walton
as their new coach like a couple of days after announcing the dismissal
of Byron Scott. Walton will be the youngest head coach in the NBA.

Wow, that was fast. I didn't know he coached for Warriors and others
according to http://www.nba.com/lakers/releases/160429_lukewalton ... I
hope he can make Lakers better.

What has changed is that coaches and the establishment has gotten better at discovering the elite athletes from very early on so the pool of elite athletes has grown. This is a fact in all sports, it is not disputed by anyone. So, the elite players of today are the cream of the crop. I don't know enough about how elite tennis players made it before the 1980s but even a phenomenon like McEnroe basically made it himself, he went the College route.
 
Yes, but athleticism is not the most critical component in tennis. This
isn't a marathon.
 
Look at at the 1983 Wimbledon final for eg. McEnroe was a skinny wimp
who never worked out playing a muscly Avengers-type super hero in Chris
Lewis (8 pack abs etc) - Mac crushed him 62 62 62 looking bored & half

He still has to prove he can face down Djoker in a slam. Yes this run
will give him confidence etc, but if he has to face Djoker at FO he
better hope it's the final. That's where all the intangibles will favor
Rafa.

I agree with that. Mac is 1 of a kind so far - once in 140 yrs.

er, everyone knows Mac is my fave player because he played tennis like
nobody I've ever seen. So courageous & immensely gifted - no one has
come close to the genius he showed on the court. I get annoyed when

that's true, jimbo was a fighter, even though he IMO had perhaps the
least skills of the greats of that day. plus he had no serve, and

Not really. Jimbo was no slouch on grass. He won the 3 slams he
entered in 1974 & all were on grass. He made 6 Wimbledon finals (1 more
than Mac, twice as many as Edberg, 1 less than Sampras etc) & only lost
to the greats. Mac at his best was simply a better player, & probably boat.

> So suddenly clay "tuneups" are important. Glad finally you can see the light. Top players compete at the "tuneups" for a reason and take them extremely seriously for a reason.
 
Sometimes yes, often no. The real issue is whether they take them super
seriously or not, they still add absolutely nothing to your legacy -
unless of course they are winning the same tune-up 8, 9+ times - then it
is notable because it's virtually unprecedented.
 
Rafa is just about the only great who's 'tune-ups' are historically
significant, because the way he's dominating them is unprecedented.

Yes, & they are also meaningful when a player wins it like 10 times,
because it's virtually unprecedented.

Agreed. Nice bit of momentum from Rafa atm but needs to keep it going &
step up a bit more.

Still it is clay & Rafa is the god of that surface & leads Djoker 6-1
h2h at FO. At this stage I'd say Djoker is a slim fave to win.
Whisper <beaver999@ozemail.com.au>: Apr 26 10:32PM +1000

Rafa may have 17 slams
Djoker may have 14 & a calendar slam
 
Neither are likely, but both are possible. If so then either guy would
have goat claims.
 
Interesting times.

Yes, no doubt Djoker is the deserved fave at this point. Rafa needs to
keep this up & hope to meet Djoker in the final if he has to meet him at
all. That's where nerves/experience will be tested to the max &
maximize Rafa's chances.

However I do think older women can be sexually attractive no doubt about
it, but the women who involuntarily make you go 'wow' tend to be in
