what's your definition of a hardass? personally, i see someone like mc68k... the guy's a college computer science student. and yet he has the balls to piss off his teachers. this guy is somewhat of a hero to me. and it's only a matter of time before he pisses off another teacher. i aspire to be like him, not only in his hardassness, but also his nerdiness. that said, what qualities to you consider to be "hard"? is it going up to someone and beating them? is it pissing off teachers? is it smoking a cig and when someone asks you to put it out, you put it out... on their face? what's the toughest thing you've ever done? what's the toughest thing you've ever seen someone do? one time i wrote a poem about some friend of a girl i had the hots for. it was totally trashing him. he found out and called me out at a basketball game. so i brought my teacher out with me to protect me from him. as he talked to me, all up in my face, i pissed myself. hence the beginning of the political party of the future share your experiences.
