AND THE BAD GUYS ALWAYS WIN. When a child is born someone with enough sense should tell the poor infant when he's old enough to understand a thing or two about guns and roses; that he or she should decide from the start whether he or she wanna be a good guy, or a bad guy. He or she may decide from the start to be a good guy but as you know a thing or two about life, things have a way of rocking and rolling and twisting to turn a good guy, into a bad guy in a blink of an eye.
And life as you know it, has a mind of its own to turn a bad guy into a good guy. So life works both ways. It can either turn you into an angel. Or a politician.
As you will have already know by now, having lived long enough to have acquired a bit of wisdom, good guys always win. In the movies, that is. Out here where life really matters, it's the bad guys who triumph over good guys because let's be frank about it; real-life good guys are usually rather timid and in most cases, kinda nerdy and are not always willing to punch first and talk later. They are more prone to be civil and educated and all of that jazz that don't really matter when a bad guy is breathing down your neck. That's why in most cases real-life good guys end up saying; aku malas jer nak panjang cerita, nanti kalau panjang cerita kang ada yang pergi hospital. But you know they don't mean it. What they really mean is, I'd rather not get involved in a brawl because I might get beaten.
Now, THAT's the difference between a good guy and a bad guy. A bad guy doesn't really think about whether he's gonna get beaten, or arrested, or having to spend a night in jail for beating up a guy over a simple question like is this seat taken? It's a simple question that needs a simple answer like; yes, it's taken. Or; no it's not, you can have it. A simple thing like this can turn into a complicated issue if you don't answer the question but instead, choose to look at the guy in eye and remain silent. A good guy may think this way;
1. This guy is deaf.
2. This guy is not here.
3. This guy is gonna commit suicide.
4. This guy has lost all his money in the stock market.
5. This guy has lost his missus to a younger stud.
and so on and so on.
In the end, the good guy will walk away to look for another seat.
But that's not how a bad guy will deal with the situation. He will wait for something like 5 seconds for an answer. If the answer isn't coming, he'll look the guy in the eye and kaboom!! one powerful punch to the nose, and the poor guy bleeds like a fountain. People around them will ask; why did you beat the poor guy for? He's deaf!
And the bad guy says; Oh, I'm sorry, mate.
And walks away from the scene as if nothing happened.
You decide whether you wanna be a good guy or a bad guy from the start. Sometimes I'm confused myself, now that I've made friends with those from the academic fraternity who have a theory on everything including why men like to beat people up.

Salam Bergen
"...good guys always win." Macam cerita Combat dulu-dulu ... the Germans (of course the bad guys) tak pernah menang although there were 10 of them against one injured, half-dead American!!! hehehe!

That's all in the movie; the lame theory - "Good guys always win."

I agree with you, sir. In the real world, bad guys always win. You counter bad guys with bad deeds.

One thing interesting about bad guys, they prone to label you 'loser' because they thought they were the winner. Always the winner.

Fauziah Ismail: Or how about cowboys and indians shoot out. A cowboy with six shooter revolvoer can take on the entire tribe of red indian in a single afternoon. The red indians can keep coming for 4 generations but all a cowbow needs is a revolver with six bullets to annihilate the red indians from the face of the earth. It's amazing.
And then in the 70s David Chang, Ti Lung can take on the entire gangsters in Hong Kong in a single fight.
Let's not talk about Sivaji. He can take on the whole world of bad guys in a single raise of his eyebrow - and he does it while singing a happy tune to a girl dressed as if she has just got out of a shredder machine.

ohhh....yess...we do have lots of theory on why men likes to beat others (especially women), why women who are beaten up by their husband still worship the grounds he walk on, why men have this intimate relationship with gadget/machine, why men likes power, why bad guy always win in the real life and why we must always be the good person the end, this is not between us and others but between us and the let us just beat Sivaji up....ha ha ha....:)

Anonymous 2:50pm: I'm not sure about beating up Sivaji. The guy's The Boss. You can't win. You can put him up against the entire species of dinosaur in a fight and you know he's gonna win hands down. I'm putting my money on Sivaji. he he

I have a dream of being a bad guy.No, not the bad guy that robs or robs people.Nor the bad guy to takes bribe and gives out bribe.

I just wanna be a bad guy who can punch someone on his nose if he upsets me.

Unfortunately, I find it difficult to make a fist coz I know my fist is not stony hard enough and not as fast as Muhammad Ali or Tyson or jet Li's punch. And I always have this "what if I broke his nose or blinded his eyes or extracted a few teeth".

Or maybe I can't be a bad guy coz I know n martial arts?

Like doc, I like to be a bad guy too. Not the beat-people-up type but the one who gets the lass first.

Seriously, this world IS for bad guys. Those not bad enough are mere bit part players in an epic movie, you know like one of those who mourns Ghandi's funeral procession, you know the one in the white colour shirt so far off, the one with no face. But a band of mere bit part players, if they gang up could beat up the bad guy anytime. Of course they can't beat Sivaji up. He's the good guy, the chosen one, hey even MGRs people are against him man.
