  • Interests:“People do not like a tough person unless he is their tough person”<br><br> This quote is true. People will go out of their way to be nice to someone who is “tough.” This is because it is easier to have that person on your side then against you. A tough person can be a real pain unless they are aligned with you, and they are your tough person.<br> I have dealt with this in real life with my Uncle Jimmy. He is a very tough guy. He wear’s wife-beaters, watches Nascar, and drinks heavily. Needless to say he has a short fuse, and is not afraid to: “put that woman in her place.”<br> I’ve learned throughout life it is just easier to be nice to Uncle Jimmy, even when he is drunk and being mean for no reason. This lesson was not easily learned however. I can remember one time when I was 9, on a hot summer day in July, I asked my Uncle Jimmy for a glass of lemonade, so he busted my lip open. Now this seemed a bit unfair, since he had just made a full pitcher, so I pointed that out. He told me little bastards weren’t allowed to drink lemonade, and preceded to dump the lemonade down the sink and kick me in the ribs.<br> Over the years I experienced more of the same. I experienced some black eyes after multiple “wanting to use the bathroom incidents.” Or some missing teeth from the time I told him Macho Man could beat Hulk Hogan. One day though, I had an epiphany, somewhat like the quote above. I had to make Uncle Jimmy like me. I had to stop disagreeing and arguing with him and making silly requests like “something to eat.” I just had to mind my manners and do what I was told. It was easier to swallow my pride and agree with Uncle Jimmy, then have him assert his toughness all the time. <br> My Uncle Jimmy soon picked up on my new behavior after an event when he dumped steaming hot Macaroni and Cheese on my lap, and I simply apologized and left the room. I didn’t think asking for a fork was mouthing off, but apparently he did, so I did the easy thing and simply agreed with him, not wanting to deal with his “tough” attitude.<br> My new approach work, Uncle Jimmy was my tough guy. We became best of friends. Now I got to watch Uncle Jimmy be tough from a different perspective. He taught me how to steal money from hobos, cheat on your taxes, and tell a hooker from cop. He even taught me a game called Squeeze The Snake; I didn’t like that game very much.<br> So I find this quote to be very true. People will go out of their way to be nice to a tough person, to befriend them, because it is easier to do that then deal with their threatening personality. I most definitely learned this over the course of my life thus far. And even though Uncle Jimmy died of lung cancer, I can guarantee that I will never be arrested for soliciting a prostitute.

Saw them live last year, loved it. I love the Chili Peppers. I would MAKE love to the Chili Peppers. And I'd kill any of you if you made love to them first.

Great band, not the BEST.

Californication first got me hooked, but my favorite album is Blood Sugar Sex Magik.

awesome ass band. in my top 3 def. Californication is a vital record. Blood Sugar Sex Magik is great. One Hot Minute was so underrated. IMO one of thier best albums. Its the most innovative and less pop out of all of the albums without Hillel. By The Way had mixed reviews. I think By The Way is an amazing record as well.
What Hits?! is also probably the bets collection of greatest hits ever...and the funny thing is, only one of the songs on it was a mainstream hit. and the new greatest hits cd is good too cuz it comes with that awesome dvd and it actually has hits on it haha.

they are not the best band ever. no where near. think of these:

led zep
nick cave and the bad seeds
funkadelic
the mars volta
the eighties matchbox b line disaster

all of those bands are better than the RHCP, as is frusciantes solo stuff

its just an appreciation thread. a thread to say "i like them, blah blah" not a thread to try and prove that they suck or anything.
