But if we have a persona that we display here, and that's what he's looking up to, it's the same as looking up to the persona a person projects in real life.

That is to say, he shouldn't put all his faith in us or anything, but, for instance, Celebrity Actors may do some dumb stuff, but you can look up to, say, Aragorn from LOTR.

Yes, but you see, I either hate every person I know in real life, or feel equal to them, the rest would be impossible to ever do anything but to admire them, and that would be pointless. It would just be a letdown, you guys I can speak to, and learn from, whether or not you are who you are, and if you can pretend to be a wise, all knowing person who cares about other people, then you most likely have the same potential outside of the internet, no matter how much of an ass you might be out there.Either way, it is better than my usual crowd. There might be someone of whom I admire, and who is close to me, but if there isn't mutual respect (which there is none.) then it is a meaningless relationship.
I honestly don't see the point of admiration towards someone you can't interact with at some level.


*note*
Most of the things I say are highly opinonated, and if I say something that insults your way of thinking at any time, most of the time I am not neccesarily saying that what you think is wrong.

There is no such thing as a wise and all-knowing person, and the wisest people are the ones who realize they know very little and are really nothing special. Real people are fallible, they make mistakes, they don't have all, or even most of, the answers. It's best to start appreciating the every day people in your life for how they deal with life every day than to start looking for great oracles of knowledge, because they don't exist, and you'll only end up jaded and disappointed.

Perhaps I worded that poorly, (I usually do.) I just mean someone who is at least smarter than the people typically around me, which I find ins't hard, I am terribly aware there is no one in this world who is all-knowing. I often wish there was at least one person who wasn't completely retarded. I find that most of the people around here share similiar views on the subjects in discussion a I do, and it is nothing beyond that. Yes some, I prefer more than others, but I respect the difference in thouht, as thinking we are totally correct is why we are so stupid. And frankly, I am already dissapointed.

Don't do that. Look up to real people that you can see and interact with in real life and real time. Not internet personalities.

None of us are necessarily anything we say we are.

It's true. In real life I am, in fact, Darkwing Duck.

Can you breathe in space?

No one can breathe in space. Some people just don't need to breathe.

Well, I guess maybe there's someone/thing that can survive by intaking what little particles are out in space. But no, I cannot.

Well, tough luck. If people always followed the rules to the exact letter, languages would never change.
