Activate the parental controls bro.  There's a lot of shit on the net that is just bad for your mind.  Even more so for someone with your job.

There's nothing wrong with how you are feeling.  It is the correct way to feel in my opinion.  Find a way to protect yourself.

I believe it will be wise to surround yourself of good, to balance the bad you have in your life.

You need to get into the mindset that helping one out of a million DOES MAKE A DIFFERENCE.

It's an uphill battle...1 step forward 2 steps back. But that one step forward impacts somebody.

I personally believe that one person that recycles, votes, adopts, etc....does make a difference. Even if 100 others don't. It's a mindset you have to put yourself into. Is it hard to do? Yup. But it can be done.

Thanks man - I do believe this

Anything that would make your life better I would do it.
I had a problem with Online gambling when it was legal
so I bought something that blocked all the gambling sites
and had a friend set up the code.
     You may be a hardened individual because of the situations
you've been through but that may not be your natural disposition.
Seeing evil & negativity daily/weekly will take a huge toll
on you mentally. Some jobs are suited better for sociopaths
that aren't violent (except when it calls for it) but have enough pride to do their job well.
Being around scum, negative, evil people all the time would make me
personally just not want to live because of my disposition.
If this affects you this much to write on a board maybe there is a department
in your field of work where you see less of the evil.
TV Filter: Anything that makes your life better but doesn't hurt other people
is a good thing.


Very interesting response thanks - because the reason I posed the question is because we've just moved, so setting up the new internet connection I was faced with the choice of filtering for family (obvious) and then for myself..... and I paused and wondered....  maybe I should sever some connections and reserve something of myself.  It's different now - people have always done jobs where they have to face down evil, but now evil can enter your home via WiFi (if allowed of course)

Thanks for the response

Great post, but can't see Taffin as a cop.  Can't really see Fortress as one.

They're probably PO's, or maybe CO's or even Private Investigators.  I could see those in either of them, way before Cop.  

But maybe I'm wrong, judging as an American while they're not American.

Correct - no cop here - and I'm guessing the others are Prison/Correctional Officers, right?  So I'm none of the above (but very interested why you think I don't come across as a cop?  Cheesy)

I'd have to say it depends on whether you have a fighting chance to operate against the evil you face, or if you're forced to be a bystander (for any number of reasons, perhaps, that only you could know).

If reality says you can only stand by, then you must remove yourself from it as best you can, for as many hours per day as you can.  You owe it to those you help, to stay in stable condition.

But if the opposite is true, then you owe it to everyone to learn as much as you can about the threat, even if it means sacrificing some mental health, to serve your time fighting for what's right.  That's why you've been made aware of it.

You're the one who must live with your choice, either way.  Pray on it and the answer will become clear.

Thanks man.  Not a bystander, so that helps.  And pretty stable too (I think!)

As I mentioned in a response above, this all came about not (totally) because I question human endurance for some thing, but specifically due to being asked what level of parental control I wanted to set for my family, and I was thinking about including myself... which felt weird....

Noted - thanks bro

It's difficult though, isn't it?  I don't want to cut myself off completely, just filter our certain types of crime perhaps - pity the internet can't be more specific maybe.... thanks for response

We'd all like to think that things like this were fake, right?  I'll leave that there, but thanks for the response - seriously

Gonna be honest here, struggling to make this BB related but I know in this place I will get cold blooded answers, and that is what I am looking for.....

I'm a tough skinned-MF.  As an older GetBigger I have made my mistakes and chosen my paths, and am well beyond personal insults hurting.  But I have an absolutely honest question for you guys

OK, I'm sure the majority of GetBiggers work harder physically than I do, but my job (can't say what sorry) requires that I face down the absolute worst of human nature on a daily basis.  My question is two-fold:

1.  Is there a limit to how much evil one person can take/look at/deal with?

2.  If yes to the above, then is it cowardly as an adult to activate internet filters that remove certain stories from your on-line 'life'?

Clearly, I am thinking I need some form of protection from the unfiltered 'truth' that is the InterWebz.  Genuine answers appreciated because it can't go on like this.  Tongue


Been here since at least 2001. This has to be one of the most original and mysterious posts I have read on the G&O. Wil be following this thread closely.

There's also the question of vulnerability.  If you've always felt this way, and there's nothing out of character going on, then there's no mystery.  I've noticed, however, that I become more 'emotionally frail' when my nutrition, sleep, and training are out of whack.  It doesn't happen often, and takes a combination of factors, but I note that I'm deeply bothered by things that I know wouldn't have usually bothered me, and I'm actually surprised at how deeply since I'm usually quite emotionally blunted.  It goes without saying that you're coming off a cycle or have been fucking with your endocrine system in some way that you'll be out of character feelingswise.

I only question whether your feelings are out of character because you probably wouldn't have kept your job if you were so troubled by it since day one.  Fwiw I'd be looking at nutritional and hormonal causes if you're feeling things differently or more deeply, or are less emotionally resilient to things that didn't traditionally harm you.

You know what?  I've been pondering your excellent response and I think there may be something to it.  I've done this job for some time now and no, I haven't always felt this way - I'm also pretty emotionally 'blunt' myself, it just felt like the last few piles of human sh1t tipped the balance for me.  And yes - because of the move (we just moved house) my nutrition, sleep and training have been totally out of whack (too old for cycles now  Cheesy)

So maybe I just need to find a new gym (the horror!), get myself back into the regular groove, and check in with myself in a couple of weeks.

Sincere thanks Tapeworm (and everyone else who's offered advice)

Wish you well bro.  We're all battling.  My mission this avo is to pick up some EPA/DHA fish oil or krill oil if they have it.  I watched a good Rhonda Patrick vid about it (she's also convinced me to start with broccoli sprouts) and realized I haven't taken any in years.  In addition to body benefits it's supposed to be good for brain and mood in all kinds of ways.

If you've got the room in the new place a home set up is really nice.  Granted, you can't have one of everything like the gym but it's hard to beat squatting in your briefs.

Sorry, Taffin.  You're just too smart to pass as a cop (at least an American one).  Agnostic007 is the only exception I can think of.

Yeah, if you find you're simply abusing yourself with the information for no reason, then it might be best to get away from it.

You'll be due for many moments of reflection, though, every time you try to load a site but find you're blocked.  So just be prepared for that.

Its 2017, I think we've all seen a beheading video or 2, and if over the age of 30 we all likely seen a dead body in person.. After the first couple you get kinda numb or used to it. Exceptions are having someone you know die or be killed in front of you... That shit kinda stays with you and even if you forget, 10, 15yrs later something you see or something somebody says reminds you of it and you wonder how or why you forgot... But eventually it passes. You realize the earth has been here for millions of years and we all have a finite amt of time and eveeybodys experience is different. Some are lucky enough to never experience shitty things and die in their sleep of old age, some are born into poverty in trailer parks and are raped as children and grow up to become prostitutes to pay for drug addictions and are murdered by bfs high on meth or whatever... Some are honors students in h.s., go to community college, work 2 jobs and are shot in the neck in the passengers seat of their brothers car by her brothers 20yr old old gang rivals thinking he was driving and die on the way to the hospital while her brother or parents even be bothered to get out of bed to come identify the body till later that afternoon. You can't fix what you can't fix, and ppl don't always deserve what they get, but the people who deserve it, always get it.

So true.  What a difference in perceptions, between being well rested or beat-up, tired, hungry and possibly hungover.  Especially true with age.

Ok so youre a crossing guard

Busted!  "The things I've seen maan, you weren't there maan... you weren't there!!!"   Grin



, I do get what youre saying the world has become a nasty place the thing is its always been that way.
but it was unseen because we didn't have the technology we have today. Its funny I hear people my age say well in the 80s this shit didn't happen yes it did we were shielded by it because no one had cell phones there was no internet now nothing is hidden

Yep - talking to my wife last night we remembered a time (I think just after 9/11) when I stopped buying newspapers (sounds antediluvian, doesn't it? LOL)  Didn't have a PC/internet back then and I recall it being a positive experience.  But human nature still caused people who knew what I was doing to rush up to me and ask, "have you heard that X died? etc, etc.)

Wish you well bro.  We're all battling.  My mission this avo is to pick up some EPA/DHA fish oil or krill oil if they have it.  I watched a good Rhonda Patrick vid about it (she's also convinced me to start with broccoli sprouts) and realized I haven't taken any in years.  In addition to body benefits it's supposed to be good for brain and mood in all kinds of ways.

If you've got the room in the new place a home set up is really nice.  Granted, you can't have one of everything like the gym but it's hard to beat squatting in your briefs.

Excepting the last 2 weeks, I eat pretty well - all cooked from scratch, no processed foods, that sort of thing.  Love broccoli stalks already too...

But your idea about a home gym is something I think I need to do.  I've had a couple of threads on here about my 50th, and now I've got the space (and an existing out-building with concrete foundations) that might be what I really need to do.

Thanks both  Cool
