To Hell (Hel) With Me?

People are multifaceted. While I try to be a nice person, and I usually am until someone gives me reason to be pissed off, I can also be the meanest fucking bitch you ever met! Generally this goes against what I believe to be proper action. Even if I don't like someone, usually I'll ignore them. But what about the kind of people that come looking for it? You warn them and they insist on pissing you off! How much bad karma is it giving me that I kind of enjoy allegorically kicking the living shit out of some asshole that truly deserves it when they come a-knocking and ASKING FOR IT??? They could just stay away! I wouldn't follow them.
Maybe I'm giving into temptation sent by some devil or other to heap bad karma atop my already questionable karma. On the other hand, maybe I'm just emulating the Norse Goddess Hel, pictured above.
Hel rules over the Norse underworld, or Niflheim. This realm has three levels. On the first level, deities and warriors celebrate together with Hel. On the second level, those who died infirm and weak roam until they are released for rebirth. On the third and worst level are the truly evil.
While Hel is generally seen as a harsh deity, she can also be benevolent. She assists magicians who call upon her respectfully.

I personally find it my civic duty to kick as many stupid people's asses as I can...and for anyone dumb enough to ask for my opinion on any subject, they really are asking for friends who really know me..know better than to ask me a question unless they really want to know what I think..I won't tell someone that dress is ugly..but if you ask me what I think of that dress...I'll tell's ugly...don't wanna know? don't ask jackie...I like it here..will be back...

Thanks! I like the "don't ask, don't tell" policy myself.
I have a good friend who is a Republican. We have agreed to disagree, so we have a good time.

I don't think it's wrong. I consider it our civic duty to keep strong boundaries in place for the excessively stupid. How else will they learn? If ever. ;D

Is that the woman in 101 Dalmations?

I think that Hel may be Cruella's mother. Or grandmother.

Revenge is natural. When I told my kids that Jesus preached turning the other cheek, they both thought he was nuts.
I'm not saying revenge is good, mind you. But it can certainly be satisfying.
