Is it a sad world?

Is it a

"sad sad world
When a girl will break a boy
Just because she can"

?

Or does it simply hold true that...

"God is in His Heaven, all's right with the world."

?

I really don't think the world can be called sad or happy, it just is. how one experiences it depends on the person, not the world.
Still, I voted sad

IMHO, maybe he should drag his ass out here some time and do something for a change.
Well, actually, I don't believe in God. Don't even believe in wrong or right. I do believe in joy and suffering, wich seem to be distributed pretty randomly.

The world treats me good, at least ten million people have it worse than me. So I can't really complain.

It is indeed a sad world.

A happy world would have us all woken up with blowjobs by large breasted women

I guess the world is ok. I mean, some shit happens that leaves you rubbing your eyes thinking, "what the hell?" But then there's good stuff to balance it out.

Shouldn't this be cross-posted in "Philosophy?"

You raise an interesting question, my melancholy friend. Girls can and will break you. And whether or not you try, you will break a few hearts, too.

The world is not sad, or joyful, or morose, or evil, or benign. On a good day, it is neutral. On a bad day, it's STILL neutral! The world is Switzerland! Play suckle on its peaks and slake your lust in its valleys! If you don't, then vote yourself the idiot .

btw: those who voted "I hate you" and "stop posting" without comment: Switzerland should give you a nasty STD, IMHO

Well thought out reply. Finally got the kind of feedback I was looking for. I suppose what initially compelled me to post this thread is a mixture of two things: the fact that this one certain girl made me suffer a great deal, and the fact that-- when observed properly-- it does seem as if though everything is in its right place ("all is right with the world").

The part about a woman breaking a man just because she can is actually lyrics from Fiona Apple's "Criminal" song. The part about "God is in His Heaven, all is right with the world" comes from a song by Robert Browning titled "Pippa passes". Link.

I suppose instead of going to the tilted sexuality forum and complaining about the grief this girl has caused me, I instead post strange threads in Tilted Nonsense. I don't want people to feel sorry for me (if I did, then I'd post in Tilted Sexuality), but I do feel like I must express this frustration in some way.

And them people who didn't post but voted (especially for the meaner options that I made available...) should get their arses back here and post

I buy into the theory that 95% of what happens in our lives is good and 5% is bad. How we feel is a function of whether we are focusing on the good parts or the bad parts.

The world, I think, operates on this same general rule.

Thanks for listening.
