    Just because all these years have passed doesn't mean he doesn't still deserve a beatdown for being such an ass back then.

    Plus it's highly doubtful you would be a suspect. You wouldn't even be on his radar.

    I'm not talking murder here, just some friendly, harmless revenge like getting him fired, thrown in jail, destroy his marriage, etc, no big deal.

    I had the misfortune of attending HS with slew of rich elitist douchebags, but it was long time ago in a galaxy far far away...

    What I love most is that some of those same assholes have the unmitigated balls to actually send me a friend request on facebook. :facepalm:

    Me too.

    Like we would talk to asshole's that think being FB friend's will change anything done in the past.

    Letting go of the past is a healthy thing to do.

    there was a kid i picked on a little bit in high school that i have contemplated sending an apology to via facebook. i never been bullied and i didn't really bully this kid -- i was just not very nice to him. to you losers who were bullied, would it be like ripping a scab off a wound if the guy who bullied or taunted you contacted you later and offered a heartfelt apology or would it actually help? i want to make sure that i'm doing what's best for him, not just what's best for me by alleviating my guilt but causing this poor kid more pain.

    in my defense, he did regularly wear a kermit the frog shirt to school throughout high school.

    but still, it wasn't right a me.

    I wouldn't give you the satisfaction of unburdening your conscience.

    Sorry! :hw:

    i'm interested in cultivating peace. i wasn't a bully. i just teased this kid for wearing a kermit the frog shirt. but i admit it was mean and i knew he didn't like it. so i guess i was a bully.

    i think that people who hold on to anger only hurt themselfs. i'll live with the guilt then. poor kid has been through enough in life i bet.

    I know and I'm being a bad Christian by not offering forgiveness but old pain is one of the toughest things to forgive.

    This.

    And the fact that I don't have to make up stories about selling cars, when in actuality, I'm a tollbooth attendant.

    No one ever wronged me in high school or college. I was friends with pretty much everyone.
