Simple question. I don't really have a 'best friend' right now, but I would probably risk my life to save any of my bandmates. Just imagine them with a gun pointed to their head, unknowingly in the way of an out of control car, or hanging over the edge of a cliff.

I couldn't live with the guilt, living the rest of my life thinking "I could have saved my best friend's life, but I didn't even try"

Sometimes, this is all I imagine.

Yes.

He's the hero The Pit deserves but not the one it needs right now. So, we'll hunt him, because he can take it. Because he's not our hero. He's a silent guardian. A watchful protector. GbAdimDb5m7.

I think I would risk my life even if the odds were near 0%, I don't think I could live with myself knowing that I didn't even try to save him.

Don't really have a BFF but the closest friend i have right now is a really hot asian girl so yes, without a moment's hesitation.

No I swore on my life and my love of it never to live for another man nor ask another man to live for me.

No, why would I? If I die, I am dead forever. If he dies, I live for a couple of decades till I die.

I can't believe you are whoring yourself out like that.

Considering that I never go anywhere with anyone who isn't my best friend and my best friend also takes care of me like no one else I've ever met, I'd say yes. I'd rather die saving her than risk living without her.
#15
Dunno. That's the kind of decision you make instantly without thinking. I have no idea how I would react, and can only guess on how I'd truly feel afterwards.

Yeah, none of you actually know what you would do

Except for maybe Dreadnought and madbasslover who have risked their lives before (mad props by the way ) inb4 Zoot.

It's easy to be a big, strong, brave guy on the internet or on your couch. There's a reason most bank robberies don't have a hero who saves the day: because most people wouldn't risk their lives for shit.
#20
Yes I would, and have in the past put myself in danger to keep my friends safe. I believe that seeing the right course and ignoring it is the sign of a coward.
Do you feel warm within your cage?

And have you figured out yet -

Probably, but I'm a pussy so idk.

It really bums me out, too. I would say that I most certainly would take a bullet for my best friend, but I have very little composure and confidence. Because of this, I'm not sure if I actually would do it, but I sure hope I would.

To add onto this, I'd like to think I would do the same for a random stranger. But again, I'm not sure I actually would. I have no way of knowing.

Of course. Hell, I would do that for a stranger.


I would do that. I dream of saving people.
Quote by Athabasca
My ex did the same. Cheated on me and then acted like I'd given her sister a facial. Women are retarded.

People are, on the whole, pussies. I don't want to be the kind of person who stands idly by when someone is in danger. I couldn't live with myself if I did.

Last time I was in the bank I plotted out my actions in the event the old guy with the oxygen tank behind me was planning a robbery.

Why? How are you a hero if you die for someone else. I would call someone who does that "stupid".

I don't care enough about others to save them. Does that make me a coward? Maybe, but a coward that's still breating then.

Luckily I never have to worry about having a best friend.

Every poster on here is a 6-foot Catholic schoolgirl with an 8-inch penis and riches beyond my wildest dreams.

Of course

"he" isnt my 'brah', though

Some people will just never know. Its not about being a "hero" Difficult to explain really, some people are just made of stronger stuff.

Who are you to decide if that's strong? From an evolutionary point of view it is really stupid.
