I know random acts of kindness exist, but what about revenge?

Have you ever enacted revenge on someone for absolutely no reason at all, at total random?

How did you do this? Because I'm not sure it's even possible...

Maybe a generalised revenge attempt against the constraints of social etiquette? It's plausible.

The definition of revenge itself makes it so they can't be random.

What about a paranoid schizophrenic ready to lash out at the world because they feel oppressed by others, and their delusions.

Empty revenge, I guess.

If you don't know the person, how can it be considered revenge?

You might believe they did something to you but if they actually haven't then in that case you accumulate bad karma or something.

My grandma had a poster in her old house where I grew up that read "I Don't Get Mad, I Get Even", which is good advice I guess. She had an abusive father so she got even by being a brilliant parent and grandmother.

Revenge implies someone has done something to or has offended you in some way shape or form.

There the only proper usage of the phrase "Random Acts of Revenge" would include instances where a Racist/SJWarlord/[Rival Group] does an unprovoked attack to people who belong to the respective classes that offend them.

FOR EXAMPLE:

(I know. I know. I hate to go Semi-Godwin on this one but this was the first thing that popped into my mind when thinking up concrete examples)

If someone was being racist to me I wouldn't even bother stepping up to the mark. Change the subject or trump them with apathy...

That isn't even close to a revenge scenario kek.

That's the thing. The "revenge" part isn't with the black guy speaking up for himself but the Skinhead in the video.
His head is so far up his own ass that to him the black guy (heck the existence of the black guy alone) dating the white chick was a personal attack thus his tirade was the act of "revenge."

Maybe the grocery scene would be more appropriate since there was actual physical attacks there.

I dunno, I've had people be shitty towards me for no reason as far as I could see but I don't think it was ever an act of "revenge"

I've done not so nice things to people because I was at the world in my younger days. I was getting revenge on the universe in my mind. The person I fucked with just so happened to be a stranger who was not responsible for what I was feeling in the moment. At least, technically not.

My mom spanked when I was little so I waited 15 years, then snuck into her room while she was sleeping and beat her to death with an iron pan.

just kidding i just gave her an erotic spanking

Do you understand the meaning of the word "revenge"? You can't take revenge on someone for no reason because they'd have to do something to you first for it to be counted as revenge.

The answer to your question is no.

Is it still considered revenge if you're being nice in the face of someone who hates you and it gets under their skin?


The simplest solution is either right, or dumb af.
