I'm a concept artist, animator and game designer from Portugal. I bass guitar, practice HEMA (historical european martial arts) and am an all-round geek of the highest order once you get to know me.

I don't believe in a god and i find that doing so brings a lot of risks with it. In the end, however, as long as one only risks one's own well being and not another's i would argue that they have the freedom to do so.

I'm an optimist, my husband is a pessimist. One day we were talking about this dynamic years ago....
kasmian comments on Aug 18, 2018:
Opposites can attract, but they don't necessarily do so. Me and my lass have very different views on the world, yet what we like about each other is the idealism: she makes me want to change who i am to be more like her and she does the same with me. we end up having this dynamic, chaotic, weird relationship where each day can be a gamble between a loving relationship and a competition. We've talked about it and found that it works for us quite well, helping us preform better in our day to day lives. Point being, we didn't attract each other with our "opposites" but we benefit greatly from them.
I might be stupid but if my partner who claims to love me more than she's ever loved anyone before ...
kasmian comments on Aug 18, 2018:
If it's just forgetting anniversaries it's probably not a big deal, since it might just be the type of relationship you're in. However, the fact that you're complaining makes me think it's ether something you don't do her as often as she does it you or, what I'm inclined believe, it's not the only thing at here and you're only asking a question about a single factor. My advice would be not to take anyone's advice unless they're aware of all the details of the issue. When that's done, try to be rational about it: your head will be the biggest source of bias possible, so try to ask loved ones what their opinion is and deduce a conclusion from that. BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY: the key to any successful relationship is communication. talk with your partner about the issue in a calm way, trying not to antagonise her or make her feel attacked but merely attempting to find if there's something wrong with both of you and what can be done to fix the issue. More than that, i can only wish you good luck and hope things work out for the best. Keep in mind it's better to **be** happy than it is to **look** happy.
If a vegan restaurant opened in your area, would you go to it? Perhaps you've already ventured ...
kasmian comments on Aug 18, 2018:
I'm not vegan, but if one opened near my place I'd totally check it out: vegans cook like crazy and they manage to make some pretty tasty things. My main issue would be what they make to replace meat, like soy patties and such, since they mostly eat that as a dietary necessity and i find the taste lacking at best, but other than that I'm all for it!

Why are so many people pleased at other people's misfortune?
kasmian comments on Aug 15, 2018:
I think it's due to the lack of empathy towards someone you don't relate to and don't know. I could be, and probably am wrong, though.
People in my age bracket have a habit of pulling photos of their grandchildren from their wallet and...
kasmian comments on Aug 14, 2018:
Both my grandparents were war veterans, one being a decorated air force pilot and general and the other a war hero in the navy who's written books about his exploits. I share their achievements proudly. Now, it might not always be the case, but people usually only share stories they 1) know about and 2) find impressive. I've met quite a few elderly people, since my cousin and my sister have worked at nursing homes, and when this topic comes up we usually conclude that the grandchildren usually don't know about the "accomplishments which were far more difficult" because nobody's told them when they were at the age where they would pay attention. If you'd like your grandkids to talk about your exploits try to have a good relationship with them and share those stories when they seem interested. On a side note, sometimes it's the case that your "accomplishments which were far more difficult" weren't actually more difficult. I'd wager that you've lived through and seen some pretty rough stuff and boasting that your grandkid managed to become a doctor or something like that may not be something as impressive as your experiences, but try to look at it without bias and think honestly, because it's easy to underrate something you've never done and overrate something you've been through. Not saying it's the case in this situation, just trying to counsel as best as i can from the limited experience I've had.
Forgiveness
kasmian comments on Aug 14, 2018:
Forgiveness is a tricky thing. It's not just saying the words "i forgive X for doing Y", but coming to terms with it. I find that truly forgiving someone is a liberating feeling. That said it does depend on the person: everyone has their limits and some actions are beyond one's capabilities of coming to terms and dealing with what someone else has done. In my humble opinion, the question "Can you truly forgive anyone for anything" is obnoxiously loaded. In theory, yes, but in practice I'm not so sure i have the answer due to my lack of lived experience. Hope that's enough to work with, my friend.
Hi all, I have to say I felt immediate relief the moment I logged into this site. It was linked to ...
kasmian comments on Aug 13, 2018:
It can be an isolating experience, specially in America. Make some friends, keep in touch and, if possible, try to make sure the folks around you know who you are before they know what you worship (or don't worship, in this case). Welcome and chin up: The world is not as ugly as it seems in a rainy day.
Besides politics, religion and age... what is your dating "dealbreaker"?
kasmian comments on Aug 13, 2018:
Lack of empathy, extremism, and impatience, though the last one has to do with my tendency to learn as much as I can about a choice before I make it, which can annoy some folks and end up being incompatible.
Does it irritate the crap out of anyone else when polling places are in a church? I have to go to ...
kasmian comments on Aug 13, 2018:
It's a bit annoying, but that's about it.
How do you respond to religious conversation?
kasmian comments on Aug 13, 2018:
I personally politely affirm i have at one time with very bad results and, if i got time and they show interest in having a calm conversation, offer to share my experience over o cup of tea (my treat, usually) i find the ones who genuinly want to help accept the offer and we end up having a great time sharing ideas, even changing some minds along the way. as an example, i once made a priest realize how pushy he can look if he presses folks to join his religion. to this day i still talk to him once in a while and he's changed his tune quite a bit, keeping his beliefs as an idea to share with those who want to hear it and only judging others in silence (for example, gay or trans folk), which is a huge step from insulting them in the street.
Have you lived enough of a life to write a book about? and if you have, would you? If you wrote it, ...
kasmian comments on Aug 13, 2018:
Lived enough to write a book about it. Wont do it since my writing ain't the best out there, but i might make a game around it, since i'm a game designer.
