Title: A Friendly Chat
Post by: Nomad on March 23, 2012, 05:59:56 PM
So in response to this thread (http://www.theflatearthsociety.org/forum/index.php?topic=53851.0), since those who replied are in favor of the thread, and nobody has made it yet, I thought I'd go ahead and make it happen.  This thread has no official topic, just with the intent of being somewhere for everyone here to talk about random things that don't quite merit their own topic, but may be interesting enough to share.  You may certainly talk about personal issues here, but let's try to keep it from being the LiveJournal thread.  Also the thread title is subject to chance since this is the only thing I could think of (although I considered "The Friends Zone" which was mildly amusing but may give the wrong impression to newcomers as to what the thread's about)



Myself, I've been off of my full time job on medical leave, due to some unexplained pain in my foot for the last month and a half.  Turns out, as I found out today at the podiatrist, I have a bunch of tiny stress fractures in the bones connecting my 2nd and 3rd toes ("index" and middle toes) on my left foot, she said most likely due to the fact that I have zero arch and an unusual amount of the load of my weight gets transferred to the wrong parts of my feet when I walk.  She wants me to stay off it for at least the next three months, which totally blows because I'm getting sick of sitting at home like a neckbeard playing vidyagames all day (which I would never have imagined I would say that.)

On the bright side, she's submitting me for disability so at least I shouldn't have to worry about my bills now.  I've managed to barely scrape by with my part-time, side job, but it wouldn't sustain me forever at this rate.

So there that is.  Anything interesting going on with any of you?

Recently I've managed to motivate myself to start working out and doing cardio again. In addition, I've been trying to break the habit of sleeping late; however, I still find myself staying up later than I should from time to time.

I'm sorry to hear that, Nomad. I hope you'll get better soon.

I became addicted to frappuccinos while I was working at my last/current-on-hiatus/whatever full-time job.  I recommend trying out the café vanilla frappuccinos; though if someone who doesn't know what they're doing makes it it won't be all that great, but a good one is amazing.

Should I make a thread about what people did today as well and insist it is also a sticky? Why don't we just sticky all the threads? Can we do that? Someone task Tausami with this project.

This is not sticky material. If people like the thread it will stay near the top. If its crap, it will sink into oblivion until Saddam periodically dives into the forum and swims back up to the surface with this turd in between his teeth. It doesn't need to be stickied.

Same thing, only vanilla bean has no coffee in it.  That one's more or less just a vanilla smoothie.

Anyway, I have tonnes of work to do, and I'm doing almost none of it. Next week I will probably have to vanish from here in a blaze of compensation and catching-up, and it's going to be horrible and awful and I'm going to be shattered at the end of it. Totally my fault though.

That's Starbucks for you.  On the bright side, usually if they see you frequently they'll not charge you the extra, unless it's some noob.  I was going into the one by my work so often that on a couple occasions I ended up with a size bigger than I ordered or with a sandwich that someone either forgot or wasn't what they ordered.  Starbucks as a whole may be a soulless corporate black hole, but the employees can be pretty cool bros sometimes.

I was aware there was one in Complete Nonsense, but I'd you read my post the point was to have a Convo thread out of it because the crap Complete Nonsense is filled with. Not everyone wants to venture down there often, especially for actual conversation. I'd like conversations in a thread that doesn't have the likely chance of being insane and filled with racism and swearing.

Anyways, yay, my idea (or at least a version of it) was implemented. I have made a (even if temporary) mark on this forum! >:]

Nice.  In other geeky news, I've been kicking around idea for a Batman related short story.  I might try to find an artist to draw it and turn it into a comic.  Obviously can't make any money off of it, but I might consider submitting it to DC to see what happens.

[edit]Eh, doesn't look like they currently accept writing submissions.  Maybe if I find a good enough artist, though, I can ride in on his coattails.  Need a good writer even to make a good artist look good.  I've seen some great artwork with shit writing, and vice versa.

I submitted about five job applications, got one interview (would have got a second if I didn't turn it down due to already having a job) and got one job in 2010. You must be doing something wrong.

Edit: On second thoughts, what you're doing wrong is submitting 50 job applications. Take the time to learn about each employer you're applying for, and put in the effort to show them you've done that. 10 really great applications will get you further than 50 average ones.

It was about 1k for a night in the animal hospital when he blocked Tuesday night.  The hospitals are very expensive but it's the only place to take him when the vet is closed.  They had to unblock him, do blood tests, and urinalysis to make sure his kidneys were not damaged, also payed for anesthesia, catheter, and IV fluids there.  The next day I transferred him to my vet to discuss the next steps, given he was a habitual blocker, despite the prescription cat food that prevents stones, the only decent option was a http://www.vetsurgerycentral.com/urethrostomy.htm (http://perineal urethrostomy).  All in all the stay, prescriptions, surgery, etc was another 1k.

As you can see the surgery is pretty drastic, it's better than the alternative though, and it gives him the best possible chance at having a normal life.  The whole ordeal has taken it's toll on me as well, I'm going to the doctor Monday to see if I can get something for the anxiety.  This cat is going to put me in an early grave.

Also pet insurance.

When you get an animal, you take responsibility for their health, in his case, he is young, the condition is treatable, and though he may have problems with bladder infections, he has a good chance at a long life.  I just wouldn't feel right putting him down for something like that, I've grown very attached to him. 

After he got sick the first time, I got pet insurance for both my cats, though he has a pre existing condition, so they won't cover anything having to do with his urinary tract.  I knew this when I bought the insurance.

Yeah you're in my backyard. I'm gonna get my mutant cousin to come kill you know while I play the bango.

Damn. Well, this sucks. Can I at least get this pizza and eat it first? Zaxby's sucked. Also I didn't know you could play the bango, whatever that is.
Oh, well Zaxby's isn't a TN exclusive place or anything.

Actually, she is referring to a music style created and made popular at the East African Coast by Joseph Ngala. It fuses traditional Portuguese music genres, Arabic influenced taarab music, jazz and music genres of local coastal Bantu languages. It resembles easy listening music styles of Latin america such as bossa nova and music styles of many Indian Ocean Islands such as Seychelles and Mauritius.

I had a bit of a panic attack this morning over my cat, he wasn't peeing and I thought he was having complications with the surgery.

I feel so lucky that my vet is a long time friend of mine and she was willing to come over and check on him.  He's been peeing somewhere, I'm just not sure where, possibly the bathtub since he's been sleeping in there.

I think I'm going to need a prescription for Zanex or something.  Usually he is annoying the crap out of me but now I just want him better.  :'(

Oh, no, she ended up being fine. Morphine overdoses have to be quite serious to actually kill someone. Still, though, WTF? She's a 15-year-old freshman at the nerdiest school in the state, and she's fucked half of the junior class and overdosed on an opiate already

Just a quick question. We seem to have a wasps' nest. We've put some ant poison down the hole but that won't be enoug like as not. Is it advisable to use an aerosol can and a lighter down the hole? It seems like a good idea as it simply smokes the fuckers, but is it really?

Boss just called me to let me know that there's no more hours for me and he's letting me go.  Due to the nature of our work that theoretically means the economy is getting a little better and there should be other jobs, but fuck my luck.  He told me to go ahead and finish out the weekend at least (I only work two days a week anyway), but I technically don't have to in order to get the hours I was scheduled for.  It's a pretty casual job and I'm decent friends with the rest of the crew, and someone's gotta do it anyway so I'mma just go ahead and do it.  And he's giving me a severance package of a case of beer and pizza.  Best boss ever, but still fucking shitty news.

Nah, my boss is awesome, and we'll be bros long after this anyway.  It's not his fault.  I probably already qualified for unemployment with the hours I was getting.  I was only hired on for ultra part time anyway, and there's just not enough hours to keep me on anymore.  Oh well, this is the kick in the ass I needed to go find a career anyway.

Essentially processing the work that contractors do (maid and lawns), taking care of foreclosed properties for the bank.  Better economy means less foreclosed homes on the market, less forclosed homes means less work orders for us, and less work orders means less hours.  And me being the newest recruit and only about 10 hours a week, I'm clearly the first one to go :(

Speaking of jobs, I've been super busy lately between my paid ambulance company and my volunteer ambulance corps. Currently, I am taking an interview this coming Wednesday for the EMS service run by the biggest hospital in New Jersey, located in Newark. The pay is substantially higher, I'll get hospital benefits (woot free healthcare) and an opportunity to go to school for my Registered Nurse certification and ASN Degree, with the goal of taking a BSN bridge program and challenging the EMT-P certification test to become a Mobile Intensive Care Nurse. Oh, and I'll get to see some of the craziest stuff ever. Definitely excited.

Icky, no. I'm aware of the very fine line between attractive and unattractive muscle.

My ballpark range is to look like Noomi Rapace in Prometheus.

Alright, so I'm getting more committed to this light weight body building idea every day. Since I don't have a legit gym membership because I'm poor, I'll mostly try to tone up through traditional ways (running, tennis, swimming, exercises at home, etc.) and no special dieting. I do have an advantage because I'm starting off already skinny at about 120 lbs. Now all you pervs can see my totally unimpressive body and hopefully within a few months I'll go crazy and start taking steroids.

That's the thing, though. In your other pics you do look 23-ish, but in this one your face looks significantly older. It could very well be the cam quality, or that your other pics are in reality a lot older.

I don't think any pics I've posted are older than 3 years, but my face looks super pixelated in this pic so maybe we can assume....

@Vindictus: when I say no special dieting that's because I already eat fairly well (for an American), but I think I might start investing in some cheap protein shakes or something.
Title: Re: A Friendly Chat
Post by: Vindictus on June 18, 2012, 04:01:32 PM
Eh, you don't really need protein shakes unless you want to take it more seriously. Just be sure to eat more lean meats and veggies (salmon for your healthy fats).

Although, cheap protein shakes are probably cheaper than lean meats. I don't know how things are priced over there.

You are going to struggle to gain weight. You are more likely to lose weight as you tone up. You need realistic goals or you will give up.

Allow me to illustrate. A natural man bodybuilder will struggle to put on 12 lbs of lean muscle in a year. He'll be lucky if he puts on 25lbs in his whole life. Yes, people often put on 20-30lbs in 2 months or whatever. That's the power of the juice. Also there's a lot of fat guys out there that will proudly tell you they are natural 180lb specimens or of large build. No, they are tubby.

Now a woman ... you are going to struggle to put on 2-3 lbs of muscle in a year naturally. That is a fact. You probably think what? No way. But then US media is constantly bombarding you with crap like this.

Quote from: http://www.steroids101.com/anna-watson-denied-use-of-anavar-steroids
The refusal of Fayetteville junior Anna Watson to take on a modelling contract worth $75000 annually because it would require her to take steroids has earned her a lot of fame and reputation. She was scheduled to appear in ABC’s “good morning America” a while back, when she explained her reasons of turning down the contract. She turned down the offer because she would have had to take anavar which is used to increase strength and muscle mass in the bodies of the users.

Now Anna is a lying bitch. She claims to have put on 4 inches on her arms in just 10 months and can now bench 230lbs with clean living and dedication and a belief in God. And America swallowed it up. I don't live in the states but I remember how much coverage she got.

(http://dietsinreview.s3.amazonaws.com/diet_column/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/annawatson.jpg)

Now you may be thinking ... she looks ok in this last photo. Looks healthy no way steroids.
(http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-2Tf9TdeokWo/TzS3_Vh397I/AAAAAAAABW8/vuDNAR3_YJ0/s1600/Anna+Watson+Photostills+(17).jpg)

Well its cos we are so used to seeing monsters like this. At 5' 10" she weighs in at 175 lbs. She's a beast.

Just in case you think I'm alone in my suspicions, below is a really good read.
http://www.muscleweek.com/anna-watson-on-steroids

So, pictures like the one you posted above with Noomi Rapace ... the reality is that girl's almost certainly packing the anavar too - its Hollywood women's favourite toy. Exercise will make you look better. You'll tone up, your skin will look fresher, you'll get definition ... but you are a girl. You won't bulk. And that's normal. Women don't bulk. And fitness models are a bunch of drug-addled lying scum bags who want to sell you useless supplements and videos. The whole industry is a pile of lies.

Use the weights, lift heavy, it doesn't matter. Your goal should be about looking and feeling better. Not about sticking on 20lbs of muscle ... cos its not going to happen ... well not without the roids.

Thork, you're talking about reasonble gains for someone on a balanced exercise regimen. Most gym-bunnies think the only exercises in the world are bicep curls and bench presses. Look at the wench you posted. She has ridiculous chicken thighs. They also have  lot of subcutaneous fat from creatine shakes and such, so they look more 'pumped'. Not necessarily roids.

That girl is on anavar at the least. To have thrown on 4 inches around her biceps in just 10 months is not human. A man can't do that. Even one who goes to the gym every day and knows everything there is to know about training. My guess is that beast has done herself a cycle of Winstrol instead. But either way, she's not natural.

I know what it's like to be there yet I still can't do a single thing and I feel like a hypocrite trying to give the whole "it gets better" speech. I try to stay away from that as I know what a shitty attempt at consolation it is, but every other route lead to a dead-end. As a result, I feel much, much worse than I already did at the start of today/yesterday/whatever.

@Supertails: it doesn't necessarily get better. There are spikes of suicides for people in their 30s and 50s. Life is tough through and through. What you need to do is throw these people a party.

Being hit by a car has to be pretty scary. I hope you were wearing a helmet.
Title: Re: A Friendly Chat
Post by: Lord Wilmore on July 03, 2012, 05:58:05 PM
It's very odd... 'scary' is almost the wrong word. I basically had mild shock, and it's an oddly unemotional thing. Your body just sort of reacts, and it's very physical - I felt buzzy and exhausted all at once. When I got home I told my girlfriend, have her a hug, and cried, but it was so strange. I wasn't sad at all, I just had to, for a few seconds. The chemicals were just lined up. I'm not ashamed of having a bit of a weep if I'm emotional, but this was very different. After that it was just 'Phew, well that could have been worse'.


As for the helmet... nope! In all honesty though, I had a long think about the whole helmet debate, and quite seriously... the evidence that is out there indicates that drivers give you more room if you're not wearing a helmet, and that they can aggravate a lot of injuries. It's also worth pointing out that they offer no protection at collision speeds - they're only tested for vertical drops from a given height. Nice if you fall off your bike, but if you're flung any distance... well, it's just foam. You're head is a lot stronger.


Anyway, all my scrapes were on my outer limits so to speak. My belt looks like I was sharpening knives with it. My bag is TOUGH AS NAILS though. I knew that when I bought it, but bloody hell - barely a mark, and it bore the brunt as I slid along the tarmac. They make some seriously tough nylon these days. Very future.

Title: Re: A Friendly Chat
Post by: Saddam Hussein on July 03, 2012, 06:34:04 PM
The conspiracy is trying to kill you. Stay safe, Wilmore.

It has happened before, after all:

A large man with fair hair wearing sunglasses and a dark coat approached me while I was in Gothenburg, grabbed me by the shoulder, and said in what seemed to be an eastern European accent, "We know who you're associating with; drop it". He then threw his cigarette at my feet and walked quickly away, around the corner. I should add this was in the city centre, at the bottom of Kungsportsavenyn where it meets ?stra Hamngatan, if anyone knows Gothenburg. I've lived in Sweden for several months on two separate occasions, and have a pretty good knowledge of their accent when speaking English- he definitely wasn't a local.

I was pretty shaken at first, because frankly, it was weird. In a bit of a haze I picked up the remains of his cigarette, which was only about half smoked. It had some writing on it in eastern characters- probably the brand or something, I don't know. Fitted with the accent though. I'm not involved in any weird activities- I am an upstanding citizen. I don't associate with anything even remotely subversive aside from fes.org & .net; I don't visit any other conspiracy sites or anything like that. This is the only thing he could have been referring to.


By the way, I'm not so self important to think that an agent of the conspiracy went out of his way to freak me out. Most likely this guy didn't even know what I was involved with. He was probably just some goon who got my picture and a message to deliver. Personally I think it's because I associate with the .net team; Dogplatter and Username were the people referenced in the BBC link. DP is also talking about organising real world protests, so their ideas about promoting FET are a little more 'in your face', and possibly considered more dangerous.


I don't know. I never really believed that the conspiracy would attempt to do anything to involve itself in this place, because ti didn't make sense, but now I don't know that I can come to any other conclusion.

The conspiracy is trying to kill you. Stay safe, Wilmore.

It has happened before, after all:

A large man with fair hair wearing sunglasses and a dark coat approached me while I was in Gothenburg, grabbed me by the shoulder, and said in what seemed to be an eastern European accent, "We know who you're associating with; drop it". He then threw his cigarette at my feet and walked quickly away, around the corner. I should add this was in the city centre, at the bottom of Kungsportsavenyn where it meets ?stra Hamngatan, if anyone knows Gothenburg. I've lived in Sweden for several months on two separate occasions, and have a pretty good knowledge of their accent when speaking English- he definitely wasn't a local.

I was pretty shaken at first, because frankly, it was weird. In a bit of a haze I picked up the remains of his cigarette, which was only about half smoked. It had some writing on it in eastern characters- probably the brand or something, I don't know. Fitted with the accent though. I'm not involved in any weird activities- I am an upstanding citizen. I don't associate with anything even remotely subversive aside from fes.org & .net; I don't visit any other conspiracy sites or anything like that. This is the only thing he could have been referring to.


By the way, I'm not so self important to think that an agent of the conspiracy went out of his way to freak me out. Most likely this guy didn't even know what I was involved with. He was probably just some goon who got my picture and a message to deliver. Personally I think it's because I associate with the .net team; Dogplatter and Username were the people referenced in the BBC link. DP is also talking about organising real world protests, so their ideas about promoting FET are a little more 'in your face', and possibly considered more dangerous.


I don't know. I never really believed that the conspiracy would attempt to do anything to involve itself in this place, because ti didn't make sense, but now I don't know that I can come to any other conclusion.


That was very different. Not very physical, just really paranoia inducing. It was a really odd month... just weird looking back.

You poor poor man :(

My gluten free pizza rolls were pretty popular

Dough: (I use the dough cycle on the bread machine but I'm sure it'll work the same by hand. And you don't need to knead gluten free dough much at all so easier than making real pizza dough)
300ml water
1 tablespoon olive oil
Three quarters teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons sugar
450g flour
1 tablespoon psyllium husk (not essential but it really helps the dough be moar normal-like)
1½ teaspoons Xanthan gum (again not essential but it sort of replaces the gluten so makes the dough much much better than without)
1 pack dried yeast (11g)

Make it into a dough and leave to rise for a bit, doesn't really rise much though so don't worry if it doesn't seem to do much.

Then roll out dough into a rectangle. Spread on a little pizza sauce and some toppings and cheese. Keep it a thin layer so it rolls easier. Roll it up and cut slices. Put it in the oven 225C for about 10 minutes.

I'm guessing it's a cavity. I've never had one before, so I've nothing to compare it to. But it's a hole in my tooth and it hurts like fuckafdksfjsa.

Plus my wisdom teeth are starting to come in and those have been starting to hurt lately, so it was only a matter of time before I ended up needing a trip anyway. Blargh.

I have no idea how bad an idea it is to take a couple of painkiller/sleep aid pills only two hours after taking two just-painkiller ones, but I am near the point where I don't care just stop this pain please.

I think a cavity is a safe bet. I have 4 fillings and I've had my wisdom teeth removed (from the jaw). Getting those removed really isn't that painful, the only thing that sucked was the stiffness in my jaw. I could only eat yogurt and apple sauce for like 3 days.

When my wisdom teeth were removed, there were complications and my jaws were in agony for weeks afterward.  I spent the whole time lying around my house taking Vicodin.  I even grew a beard, because it hurt to shave.

All the tales of wisdom teeth pain does not have me very thrilled to get them taken out. But honestly, I don't care as long as it means my mouth not randomly hurting so much of the time. And I can say without a doubt I've been through worse. Surgery is not fun.

That might have just been the Swans effect.

Also, don't worry too much if it's a cavity. You won't feel a thing under anesthetics and it wears off pretty quickly.

Post by: Son of Orospu on July 14, 2012, 08:40:14 PM
Cavities are not anything to worry about.  They drill it a little, and that is the worse part.  It does not hurt at all.  It is just a little nerve racking having a power tool in your mouth.  The filling itself is quick and you will not feel it.

Wisdom teeth are a little more involved, but it should still not be too bad.  Just make sure you do not do anything to cause complications afterwards.  Mine got infected and I looked like a chipmunk for a week or two.  Antibiotics cleared it up, though.

Honestly, getting my wisdom teeth removed was not a big deal AT ALL. I promise it was only the stiffness that was bothersome. You mostly just sleep with your lovely pain medication. Some people have complications, but that usually doesn't happen.

For cavities once your mouth is numbed you only feel the pressure, no pain. But they do jab your gums with a needle for that and that always feels horrible to me, but I just don't handle needles well.
Title: Re: A Friendly Chat
Post by: Space Cowgirl on July 15, 2012, 07:16:53 AM
I hate the numbing shots, and the drilling is mildly annoying, but not painful. I had my wisdom teeth taken out all at once (they knocked me out) and didn't have any complications after.  Anytime you have a tooth pulled you have to be careful not to mess up the blood clot, I've heard that is extremely painful, since it exposes the bone.
Title: Re: A Friendly Chat
Post by: Space Cowgirl on July 15, 2012, 07:35:53 AM
Oh I just remembered something that might help you survive until you can see a dentist. I once had a similar problem, so I went to a convenience store and bought some of those wax lips, you know the ones that are sweet for little kids to chew on? Anyway, I chewed up a piece until it was soft, and then formed it around the bad tooth to keep the nerve from being exposed.

Post by: Son of Orospu on July 15, 2012, 07:44:18 AM
This will sound really strange, and I thought so when I heard it, but I am not trying to trick you.  I heard that cayenne pepper powder will numb a toothache. 

My son was was boxing at the gym a couple of years ago.  He got clocked pretty good and his mouth piece cut into his gums very deep.  I think it went down to the roots or close to it.  He acted tough when he came home and it was a weekend, so I told him I would make a dentist appointment on Monday. 

He was in a lot of pain that night.  I remembered reading about the cayenne pepper, and figured it could not make it much worse.  He tried it and said his pain instantly went away.  This may or may not work for you.  It did help my son, though.

Chew on some cloves, they're a natural anesthetic, thats what I do when my teeth hurt (I've got a cavity but haven't got around to getting it filled yet cos it only hurts from time to time). Getting a filling is no bother and having wisdom teeth removed usually isn't bad either.

Aww, thanks everyone. I had one hell of a freakout at the concept all this, but you guys are making me feel a bit better and less paranoid about it. Only thing I'm still worried about is the bill, but I can't really do anything about that until after the fact.

Also I accidentally bit with that tooth again and freaking ow. It wasn't as horrible as yesterday, but I've had a bad headache the past hour or so 'cause of it.

Today I went to the natural history museum in London and saw me a whole bunch of dinosaurs (dead). I went with my 5 year old nephew. It was going fine until we got to a bit with an animatronic T-Rex. It was growling and frowning and showing its teeth. My nephew immediately said, "I'm scared, can we go home now?" asked to be picked up and couldn't get out of the building fast enough.

The marine section and pickled animals section was a blur as "There's no moar dinosaurs, is there?" got asked repeatedly.

Anyway after that I went to Kensington park, checked out lots of women wearing tiny shorts, got back on the train and went home.

It was hot today.

So I write music articles for a company (reviews, general articles, that sort of thing). I've been doing it for a while, but it's sort of a 'freelance' thing where I'm not actually employed by them, they just pay me when I do it based on how many people read what I write and that sort of stuff. It's terrible pay (really terrible, like $20 a month) because it's based on the views, and I write for a local chapter of it, so there aren't exactly a lot of views to be had. I do it, though, 'cause a little money is better than no money, and it's a nice thing to show future employers, especially if I want a bigger job doing something like this.

Anyways, I've been with the place for over a year, and I pretty much went on hiatus for half a year while churning out like an article a month because I was just sick of it, I felt no real incentive, and I was just overall not feeling mentally well at all. I'm not much better, but I desperately need anything I can get right now so I've been trying to be more consistent this past month.

Now for the real point: The other day I got an email asking if I wanted to cover a music festival going on about 5 hours away from here next month. It's not just some local-band thing, it's acts like Nas, RJD2, Yelawolf, Pretty Lights, Infected Mushroom...but I checked the site and it'd cost me like $200+ just to be present at the place all 3 days, and that's not including the lodging. I told them so, and they told me I'd be getting free tickets there.

This might not seem like some mind-blowing achievement, but keep in mind I've pretty much just been some amateur writer whose stuff they slap up so they have someone in this area, I'm not actually employed by them. So this isn't something anyone would consider a job, it's more of a hobby with tiny benefits. But the place has the potential to be a job if you're good enough, and it can get you places. So for me, this is a massive step up...I'm doing something I do also because I love it, and they're shipping me off to a semi-expensive music festival because they want me personally to cover it. I'm not even the only one in my state who could, but they picked me.

I have crushingly-low self esteem, so it doesn't really take much to make me feel good, but this has me in much higher spirits than I've felt in a while. It is awesome.

Good: The Midsummer Station by Owl City and F.L.A.G. (Fight Like a Girl) by Emilie Autumn (the girl in my avvy) will be in my mailbox by Monday.

Bad: With what I've heard from The Midsummer Station so far, I'm scared this'll be the first Owl City album I don't like...All Things Bright and Beautiful (his last album) was pretty okay, but I really don't like the new 'generic pop' direction he's heading so far. I like the abstract poetry of Maybe I'm Dreaming, the complex and huge instrumentals in Ocean Eyes, or even the carefree naïveté of Of June. Blegh. Let's hope for the best? :(

???: F.L.A.G. has a lot to live up to. Emilie's other album I have, Opheliac, is my most-listened to album of all-time, and is in competition with The Airship by Port Blue for the position of my favourite album. So I'm equal parts excited and scared. I don't want her to lose the raw, unrefined edge that she had simply because she's more experienced now. I want it to be crazy, all over the place, while at the same time gorgeous in its atmosphere and moods. I've heard Fight Like a Girl and Time for Tea off of it, and I really hope it leans more toward the latter because that was more unhinged and wild. But we'll see. Please. Dear God I'm excited and scared.

Alright, so I'm getting more committed to this light weight body building idea every day. Since I don't have a legit gym membership because I'm poor, I'll mostly try to tone up through traditional ways (running, tennis, swimming, exercises at home, etc.) and no special dieting. I do have an advantage because I'm starting off already skinny at about 120 lbs. Now all you pervs can see my totally unimpressive body and hopefully within a few months I'll go crazy and start taking steroids.

So I went to the pool this morning. "One for swimming" I cheerily smiled at the zombie behind the desk.
"Have you got a membership card?" She mumbled.
"Indeed I do" I replied with a pleasant tone.
I proceeded to make my way into the changing room, got into my swimming gear and popped into the showers where I had a quick rinse and stretch before making my way to the pool. I then slipped into the water and the instant I did, the hot lifeguard woman that I like, blew her whistle at me and signalled angrily for me to get out of the pool.
I went back to the changing room, got dried, put on all my clothes and made my way back to reception.
I walked up to the zombie and asked her "Is there anything you should have told me when I handed you my card to go swimming about 10 minutes ago?"
"I'm so sorry , sir I..."
"No" I interrupted, "that's not it. What should you have told me?"
"Its ladies only swimming at the moment, sir. "

Stupid woman >o<

Because there is a large contingent of dirty old men that like to grope the old ladies. Having tired of this several decades ago and had their vaginas heal over, they demanded a session on the timetable where dirty old men couldn't molest them. Instead they can now walk up and down the pool in pairs pretending to swim, ensuring their hair doesn't get wet whilst they exchange baking tips and talk about which of the young male life-guards they'd screw if chloroform was made an over the counter product and their vaginas were surgically reactivated.

The Beatles: Panic! at the Disco - Nine in the Afternoon

I just listened to three more. I actually liked Green Gentleman and I Write Sins Not Tragedies (which I'm pretty sure I've heard before). I liked the vocals, and those songs didn't sound forced. I don't remember which other song I listened to, but it was pretty blah to me like the first.

Paul Simon's Graceland is my favourite album ever. It is frequently unique in it's composition -- not a lot of 1-4-5 to be found there (I don't know if you know anything about theory). It's definitely different, so it might grow on you if you don't love it at first listen.

The Refreshments: (Fizzy Fuzzy Big and Buzzy)
The Refreshments - Down Together (http://#)

Captain Tractor: (they aren't terribly talented, but they are fun -- and some sad songs like this one)

I guess I am just used to the applied sciences.  You know, the ones that you can actually use to produce useful things.  There is nothing wrong with knowing history, but I don't think I ever had more than one, maybe two history classes in the same semester.

Yes, even though the material may be well known the author may be narrowing in on something specific. Tests will come from these specific readings as well as papers. For example, my primary source for a paper due next week are the pictures from one of these books. What does the artwork of Rome say about the changes happening etc.

Applied sciences are useful, but do you know who government officials ask about politics, economics, and warfare? Historians. If you don't know where you came for you have no idea where you're going or how to get there.

Couple hours ago I got a second root canal, filling and several extra shots for numbing since I could still feel it. The numbing's been wearing off so bear with me a bit if I'm extra bitchy/passive aggressive and snap at anyone. I'll try not to, though.

Took some acetaminophen PM and I'm starting to feel kind of out of it. I'm pretty sure this is the second time I've taken any sort of sleep-aid pill in my life. Only other time being for one time I couldn't sleep the night before Christmas so I took a half a pill because I was a child and rationality swq.

Currently going at 9 right now. Looking like it's going to be 12+, if I don't sleep for a while. :D

I forgot how much I absolutely adore these games. The best part is that this is the only generation I'm out of the loop on, so this game'll pretty much get me up to speed on what Pokémon there are with the added bonus of all of them being a surprise. This will be a very enjoyable week. :)

I don't really see this. Everyone complains about the new generations in one way or another, but I think most of it is "stuff from my childhood was the best!" nostalgia, or just the fact that by that point they'd grown out of it so the newer ones were just like "meh". Honestly, the new ones look great to me. There are some dumb ones, but every generation had some dumb ones. I'm frankly surprised that they've managed to keep them as diverse as they are with 500+.

While they are diverse, the problem I have with them is the lack of creativity. They all seem like robots by design, now. Legendary species no longer have that legendary feel that the ones in the first 251 sets had. A lot just seem to be regurgitated versions of older ones. The only diversity is probably with attack names and stats, but you can pretty much do that with modifiers anyway. I just don't see the point anymore except MAYBE some story.

I guess in short I appreciate the older generations more than the newer because I had time to be blissful about it.

I definitely agree with the legendary problem, though I think a lot of the way they screwed themselves over with that was how they had to keep making them more and more legendary. Mewtwo was a genetic experiment; Lugia and Ho-Oh were legendary birds; Kyogre, Groudon and Rayquaza were masters of water, land and sky; Palkia, Dialga, and Giratina control time, space and antimatter; then Arceus was (probably) creator of the entire universe. Where do you go from there?

So yeah, the legendaries have kind of gotten less awe-inspiring and more "well, this is the legendary, I should catch it". Personally, I think either Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald or Diamond/Pearl/Platinum were the last great legendaries, but even by D/P/P the sheen was a bit worn. R/S/E was personally the last series where I was all thrilled about the legendaries.

I agree, they are really biting off more than they can chew and ultimately, the legendary nature should only be topped by Mew. Mew was supposed to be the Legendary Pokemon. Making a new one that supposedly "created the universe" just seems over the top and ruins the creativity of the original in my opinion.

Either way, I just don't enjoy the new ones anymore. They just seem to be trying too hard anymore with a franchise that was once so special.

Yeah, that sucks. Mew was always my favourite legendary, and I always thought it was supposed to be the original Pokémon. I wish they'd stuck to making legendaries that were legendary without trying to up the ante each time, since they eventually back themselves into this corner. Maybe even try going a different route for legendaries, you know? Instead of the usual "couple legendaries of x, y, and z elements", try doing something new. I don't know what, but that's because of how formulaic it is now. I'd want to be surprised. Hell, fusions or something even. One legendary that's a new or undefined element. Anything.

They wont be able to because now they've essentially ingrained this system of "one upping" the previous ideas into everyone's brains, coupled with the severe competitive nature of the genre, to create something of that nature would defeat the idea of being "the very best" that it promotes by creating these ultimate players.

On a side note, I really liked the original story of how Mewtwo was created by Team Rocket. To me, this was cool because while Mew was supposedly either extinct or simply MIA, having the DNA and modifying it to their needs was really cool. You wont see that level of development again in the series.

Also, the only other thing that bothers me is that these new pokemon are just now being "discovered." Realistically they should have already been known and therefore referenced to. They could have played it off as being "regionalized" to the Kanto/Johto regions and such, as you would have to justify the story to cover the hardware/software limitation at the time. That's just me though.

Possibly, but I'm pretty optimistic when it comes to Nintendo's games. Maybe they won't, but it's always possible that they will. I mean, they're going to run out of ways to one-up themselves. They pretty much already have with Black & White; I'm not even sure what the stories of these legendaries are, and I don't want to look it up because spoilers. So I guess when I'm done I'll see.

I thought it was regionalized? As far as I've known, all of the Pokémon in the newer regions are already known in the region, save for a few of the rarer ones.

Also, for what it's worth, the bad guys in Black & White are actually a lot better than Team Rocket and Team Galactic's generic "capture ALL the Pokémon!" I found myself agreeing with Team Plasma's leader at points, and for once it seems like an enemy that actually has good intentions for what he's doing, albeit misguided. Though the best part is that you could possibly argue he's not misguided and that he is right.

After having heart palpitations throughout the day I went to a walk-in clinic where they hooked me up to a neato EKG. We discovered that I have a potassium deficiency, hooray! Which explains why I sometimes get agonizing calf and foot cramps where my toes stick out in morbid directions while A&A squeezes my foot to help the pain. Perhaps this also explains the sudden onslaught of nausea after the mud run. They took blood to see just how low my levels are and gave me giant potassium and magnesium pills in the meantime. If they can fix my cramps, weakness, and fatigue all in one go then that would make me a very happy girl. Buut, they probably think I have an eating disorder (which I don't) since that's the main known cause.

Well it's good you got it figured out Roos Roos.  I'm always afraid when I'm not feeling right that if I go to the doc they'll think I'm just full of shit, so I just assume I'm fine.  Opposite of hypochondria i guess; hyperchondria?  Either way I could have avoided a lot of problems if I had my foot checked out before I finally did.  Oh well.

I do the same thing. I debated whether I was just overreacting for the longest time but the palpitations eventually got too annoying and uncomfortable. I'm still experiencing them, quite worrying really. I hope I dun have a heart attack.  :(

Palpitations are common.  I think I read that half of the population gets them.  I get them and it used to scare me.  I get them less when I stay away from caffeine and when I do not drink too much alcohol.

Sure, this morning I thought it was just my coffee but my heart has been beating hard all day. It's very uncomfortable, plus the EKG was actually abnormal due to low potassium. In severe cases it can lead to cardiac arrest, I just don't know how severe it is for me yet. :(

You should go to the doctor, Roos. I usually overreact in the same way you guys do, but it's best to be wrong and be told you're fine than have something wrong and not find out.

I went to my first rave today. My feelings are mixed. On one hand, the music and energy were awesome. On the other hand, there were skimpily-dressed dancers on stage, people grinding in the audience as it got late...and some guy grabbed my butt and then hit on me. Seeing as I am not a social person and incredibly socially awkward, this is just about the worst situation I could have possibly been put in. Through the jumbled, stuttery mess I call "talking" he eventually got the message and thankfully left without a fight.

Also, all the drunk people. I don't like being around drunk people. I was one of the few sober people there.

But yeah, other than those bits it could've been awesome. :( Everything was horribly awkward and uncomfortable once people started grinding, so I probably wouldn't stay five hours if I went again. It all felt a bit too sleazy for me.

What's with the 'k' abuse? There is no 'k' in the word Electric, no k in cardio pertaining to heart such as cardiovascular and cardiac arrest. And then a redundant 'm' at the end. This is just abuse of English for the sake of it, surely?

I eat a banana everyday. Reading about it online, I found out that the deficiency doesn't come from a diet. I don't eat a lot of salt either unless I'm having some poopy cheap Asian noodle thing. I do have a cup of coffee every morning for the past 3 years... I'm sure it's not that bit of caffiene. My deficiency may just finally be catching up to me due to the prolonged exercise and constant stress of school and work. My heart is still pounding today. My grandfather and great grandfather both died of heartattacks and I started wondering if maybe deficiencies could run in the family and if maybe that's what caused their heart problems. I know my grandfather wasn't fat or that old when he died.

I gave up about 4 or 5 times before I quit for good. Nicotine gum is useless. I just got hooked on that and still wanted a cigarette all the time. I found chewing regular gum worked best for me. I ended up with a jaw like a breeze block, but I've not smoked in almost 2 years.

Actually, I'm using the nicotine gum.  This isn't the first time I've tried to quit, and the last time I had great success with the gum.  I managed to ween myself off it and for a period of months (can't remember exactly how long) I didn't smoke or chew anything.  It took a majorly stressful situation (I lost my job after nearly a decade) for me to go back to it.

The situation has changed since then.  I recently went through pneumonia that I was having a really tough time kicking.  I also had pneumonia last year.  I felt like my body was seriously trying to tell me something.  This last time I just wasn't getting over the cough... then I stopped smoking, and within two days it was gone.

This wasn't an "I'm quitting because of future health risks" situation.  It was an "I'm quitting because I think these things are killing me now" kind of thing, and I feel like that gives me extra incentive to be super-serious about it. 

And I just don't have the willpower to do it cold turkey.  I know enough about myself to understand that.  I figure that with the gum at least I'm cutting out the damage it was doing to my lungs, which right now is what I'm particularly concerned about.

But God... I want a cigarette.  :(

Title: Re: A Friendly Chat
Post by: Nomad on October 11, 2012, 08:51:28 PM
My dad started chewing to quit smoking and then he just end up doing both.  He keeps quitting smoking, but he won't kick the chew.  Which is probably even more disgusting than smoking.

But you can't really make anyone kick habits like that.  They have to do it themselves, for themselves.  Sad truth.

I bought an e-cigarette kit to use to ween myself off regular cigarettes.  Basically, it is about the same size and shape as a real cigarette, and when you take a drag from it, you are inhaling mostly water vapor.  It has nicotine and feels very similar to smoke, but does not really taste the same.  I still smoke cigarettes, but I am smoking fewer real cigarettes every day.  This (http://www.blucigs.com/starter-kits) is the kit I bought, but I got the white version which looks more like a real cigarette.

Nephew got Sonic Adventure 2 on the Playstation Store. I've been playing it for about 12 hours now.

Excuse me, Sega seems to have gotten a bit of a Sonic game in my Chao-raising. These things are so adorable, I can't help but smile all proud and feel so "awwwwwwww!" when I whistle and my most snuggly chao gets excited and rushes over to me all gleefully. why cant these things be real i want to raise one in real life

EDIT: You know, when I played this when I was younger it was so much different. I still found them adorable, but when I'm playing now I've got like this motherly attachment to each chao. It makes it even more cute, but at the same time I'm feeling bad if I don't think I'm giving some enough attention, I'm scared to have too many because otherwise I'll be flitting about between them trying to give them all love. I'll feel horrible thinking one went its whole life without getting any attention. :-[ And oh god i know im going to cry when any die, especially if they dont love me enough to be reborn as a new baby chao

yes im weird i know

Gatlinburg was fun. The highlight was going to Clingmans Dome and then hiking ~10 miles along the Appalachian Trail which took about 6 hours. I even had to poop in the woods. I wouldn't mind hiking more in the future and sleeping in the "shelters" along the trail. Some pictures to come eventually.

Not exactly. It was just better than the more common trauma shears, which still get the job done. I also carry a knife specially made for cutting clothing off for trauma assessments as well, just in case.

Most patients are often conscious when becoming trauma naked. As perverted as it may seem, it is a necessity to perform a proper trauma assessment to make sure all injuries (if any) are found and treated (if treatable).

I own all four CDs by Owl City, two EPs (one in CD form, the other only released digitally), and all one-off tracks for either movies or bonus tracks from iTunes; I own the Sky Sailing CD; and I own both Port Blue albums that were released only digitally (sadly). On top of that I have everything unreleased from each of those projects, as well as music from his other projects that had a single album or EP that went unreleased but floats around the internet.

Finally actually purchasing the single "To the Sky" from the soundtrack of an unimportant animated film from a couple years back puts me at legally owning them all. Nobody can ever say I don't support artists I really appreciate. :]

BOINK!

I turned around to see a smear on my window. Has some little git thrown an apple at it? As I got nearer I saw a tiny feather in the smear. Looked like a bird had flown into the window. I looked below the window but saw nothing. Re-examining the smear it 'smeared' to the left quite a bit. Sure enough about 5 yards to the left of my window a juvenile starling lay motionless.

I went to the kitchen to get a dustpan and brush but when I got to the spot, the bird was gone. Like 20 secs later. I happened to notice feathers falling from a nearby apple tree in the garden. Something had stolen my dead starling. Turns out it is one of those red kites. Its still busy ripping into that little dead bird as I type.

So, whilst I felt a bit bad that a young bird died slamming into my window, it made dinner for something else so it wasn't wasted.

Damn, I overestimated how much running/jogging I could handle, got in just barely over half of what I'd planned. I knew I was out of shape, but that out of shape? Really? Jeez.

Even though it's freezing out, I really want to start getting into shape again. I'm not overweight or anything (which has been hard to come to grips with, my mind is always telling me to lose more and more weight), but I'm definitely not in shape. I need to figure out some kind of regimen to keep up, but I'm no fitness expert.

It's too cold for A&A and me to run outside, it really burns the throat/lungs. I suspect we'll start playing more tennis though. Along with yoga I do some calisthenics. You can start by doing push-ups for a min, rest for a min, planks for a min, rest for a min, squats for a min, rest for a min, and then burpies for a min. Then you just keep lengthening the work out time and shortening the rest time. You can do different excersises just as long as you focus on arms, abs, legs, and then the whole body (burpies are a bitch).  That's how I stay fit without getting bulky.
No steroids, no dick waving.

Too cold to run?  Nonsense!  Wear a scarf over your mouth.  It'll get wet from your breath condensing, but it'll keep the cold air from piercing through your lungs.  Cold weather is great for running, you don't really even need to bundle up because your body heats up with all the activity.  Don't go too far from warm shelter though.

Also if it's REALLY cold, don't go straight inside.  Let yourself cool down for a minute so you don't get temperature shock.

I need to get running again myself.  I know I've been saying this, but I've got ulterior motives now.  Also going to start practicing parkour a bit.  Won't be doing flips and shit, but I'm going to learn to navigate unusual terrain.  Also for said ulterior motives.

Until I can get pepper spray, I'll have small canisters of a blend of pepper, salt, and cayenne.  Also looking into homemade smoke bombs.  My primary defense is running away.  I'm not actually a superhuman, I can bleed and die just like anyone else.  I just want to do more to keep my community safe.  Most nights will comprise of making notes on a pad of paper, and making calls to the police if anything suspicious happens.  Worst case scenario is that I see a crime in progress and am spotted.  I'll wear a mask and as noted I'm going to train in parkour in order to make quick getaways (augmented by smoke bombs so potential aggressors won't see which way I go), so hopefully my anonymity and evasive maneuvers will keep me safe.

We had settlers here for 50 millenia before Captain Cook "discovered" New South Wales and imposed the English people's perverse concept of law and order on the place. What's more, they took better care of the land than your people ever did. Believe it or not, there was a time when Sydney Harbour was free of pollutants. The scum that white man pumps into his own waterways is a very recent development over here, dating from the past two and a half centuries or so.

England didn't create Australia. It wasn't the first to settle here, and it wasn't even the first European country to explore it. All you did was destroy it.

Believe it or not, there was a time when Sydney Harbour was free of pollutants. The scum that white man pumps into his own waterways is a very recent development over here, dating from the past two and a half centuries or so.
You are a white australian. I feel its probably important to point this out to you as you seem to have forgotten.

England didn't create Australia. It wasn't the first to settle here, and it wasn't even the first European country to explore it. All you did was destroy it.
I've never even been to Australia. In fact I'm not entirely sure it exists. I'm still rather fond of the notion that its just an out of the way place in America. But it is Australian citizens who settled in Australia. Not the English. Once you claimed independence, England was absolved of all responsibility. Its Australians and their forefathers that have muffed up Australia.

Besides, it was only ever meant to be a penal colony anyway. No one back then thought the criminals would be allowed to form their own nation.

Australia didn't become independent from England until 1900, by which time most of the damage had already been done. It didn't take more than a few years for Sydney Cove to go from a beautiful bay that the colonists decided to found the first city on to a sewage dump. The atrocities committed to the land and to the native inhabitants over the next century were also committed by English colonists.

It only took a couple of decades after independence for Australians to start making changes for the better. We gave women the right to vote, and eventually started treating Aborigines as human beings. We have programmes in place to try to reduce the amount of waste that gets dumped into landfill and waterways. Now our Prime Minister has even allowed a conscience vote for her party in Parliament on the issue of gay marriage, despite not herself being a supporter of it.

We haven't fully repaired the damage you did to our nation before independence, but we're working on it. These things take time.

Talk to your prof tell them the issues you're having and ask if they can get hold of her.

It not only makes them aware of the issues you're having but it also makes them aware that something may have happened to her.

Protip: lecturers often don't believe this stuff, or sort of ignore it. Team assignments are supposed to be about 'the team', so sometimes they'll brush you off if you're peers don't show.


If this is an issue, and the lecturer tells you it's a team assignment and that's just how it is, then as backup I suggest you either forward on or print your emails to this person. It's evidence of your 'pro-activity' and/or their last-minute crap, and might help you out if it's something critical.

I used to bartend in a college down and after a drink or two, the professors would delight each other in the "lies" students told to get out of work. Sometimes they were obviously lies, a student saying he was suffering from jet lag despite not leaving the time zone, others were a bit grayer, a student missing a test because of a flat. Students do lie to get out of work and flat tires do happen from time to time. Regardless, the professors assumed that they were all lies.

That was always the thing that amazed me when I gave up. I had no idea I thought about cigarettes all the time, even when I wasn't smoking one.

"I'll finish this and go out for a cigarette. Then its only half hour til lunch so I can have one just before. Then a quick one after lunch and maybe sneak another one this afternoon before home time". It just goes on like that. I'll take a detour on the way home to buy some more. I'll have to go to the shelter which is a bit further away as its raining. I'll have to be 2 mins even later for work, they won't notice.

I think it took 3 good attempts to finally give up. So far 2 years. But I'd managed 3 years once before so I guess I'll always be in a state of 'giving up'. I'm not sure once you start you can ever give up, because you'll always know the secretive selfish joy of a sneaky cigarette and how no matter what, it makes the world OK.

I would have helped but she'd obviously pissed her knickers and I couldn't get out of there fast enough. Anyway, I laughed when I had a closer look at my new toothbrush this morning.

Lawl. I would be a little scared if I read that on my toothbrush. I would just imagine millions of tiny little hands making up the brush, reaching around my teeth and feeling them and picking off plaque one by one.

I'm going to pick up a ton more hours at my job so I can actually make a decent paycheck and plan for our trip to England. I'll also be trying to send out some emails to some places over there to see if there's a possibility of a job or even internship. I haven't quite decided if I want to go to grad-school, but if I do I want it to be in England.

I just had ginormous knobbly poo. Its the type of poo you might only have once or twice a year. It was of good length but it was the shear girth I had trouble with. It feels as though my hole has been rubbed with a scouring brush and soaked in whiskey. Its in tatters.  A cool, refreshing, yet unsettlingly alien wind is now soothing my gaping chasm. My knees are quivering as I type and I feel a combination of exhaustion, relief and pride.

Yeah. I mean, she seemed pretty happy to be asked, but I wasn't really sure where to put my hands at first and then she spent the entire dance avoiding eye contact with me and then broke it off a bit early. It was just awkward and terrible and I don't know where I stand with her now and ugh.

I was at the pool today and the kids haven't yet gone back to school. The pool is laned off though and I managed a good swim.
However it was after my swim, I happened to be getting my stuff out of my locker. You ever get that feeling you are being watched? Well I was bent over wearing just my lycra jammers because the lockers are all floor based and I turned around to see a 12-13 year old girl having a really good stare at my arse. (I'm 35 this month for those that don't follow the life of Thork.) Anyway, she saw me looking at her, looking at my arse. I flashed her a smile like 'its ok, I caught you, I'm not offended' but she turned purple with embarrassment. More amusing her mother (who frankly was much more to my taste) saw her daughter turn purple, new she'd been busted looking at my arse and decided to turn purple as well. Glad I wasn't in the car for that conversation on the way home.

The real douche move was separating within months after having a baby. Now that child is going to grow up without a coherent family, no doubt with parents telling them conflicting things and making conflicting rules.

If they separated that soon after childbirth, the relationship couldn't have been that strong when they decided to procreate. So why do it?

That's awesome, Thork! Age genuinely doesn't matter, as long as she's not underage, so don't have any worries about that and anyone who nags you about it is stupid, so go for it. Make a good impression, but don't be someone else. Anything that lasts longer than a fling will end badly, then. But I'm sure you know what you're doing. :]


I just got back from rehearsal for a short short film I'm doing for a friend. She's a really good director with an eye for things. Though a different friend is directing, actually, it's her first, but she's kind of under the former's guidance. It's just me and one other person in the film, I'd never met her before but she was really nice.

Now, this must be followed with the mention of the fact that I am extremely socially paranoid and awkward. I have literally spent many, many hours of trepidation pondering all the things that could go horribly wrong. I was in a couple of plays a couple of years ago in high school (one of which was just me and two others in front of hundreds of people...and 60% of the play was improvised). They were horrifying, but how much they made me realize I love acting kept me pushing through all of the unbridled fear and just doing it. The three-person play was one of the best times of my life, honestly. I cried after the last performance. :[

But yeah, I did those and one film with the director of this one before, so this was the first time I'd done any acting in a couple years. I hadn't been able to sleep the last couple of nights. It wasn't even just the acting part, it was just the thought of being around them and what they'd think of me after all this time and how pathetically I'd come off and if they'd hate me and regret asking me to be half of it and ajfdklfjskfj. When I got there I was quite literally shaking for the first 30-60 minutes.

Then, though...it was...fun. A lot of fun. We all had basically the same sense of humour, we were laughing and joking around while still taking the script and reading seriously (speaking of which, I only got the script yesterday, while they all have had it for weeks, so I worked my ass off memorizing it in a couple of hours...only to find out nobody else had any of it memorized). I don't have anything good to say about my acting (surprise surprise), but something about it was so invigorating. I'd been telling myself that I was losing interest in acting the past few years, but actually doing it again reminded me how much I love it.

One thing I am minorly proud of is how much more seriously I take it nowadays, even though I haven't done it at all. Back when I was in theatre I'd just kind of read the lines, listen to how they said my character should be and then act. Nowadays I get way more involved with the actual character, figuring out the backstory and mannerisms and sitting there rehearsing in a mirror, actually acting like I'm them and analyzing every word and how I say things and all of that. It means I've become somehow even more critical of myself, but a bit more of a "okay, no, not like that, so how can we at least try to improve that?" kind of way.

I only got back a bit ago, and my heart is still racing. I just feel...really happy, for the first time in a long time. Tomorrow I'll probably go back to how I usually am, but for now I'm just savoring it. I'm about to cry I think. It's kind of sad that being happy is such a momentous thing, but I'm just happy about it all ajfkdsj. Usually when I get back from anything where I talk to other people (especially ones I know casually or used to know), I sit there all crushed and analyze all the things I should have said, when I sounded really awkward (all the time), when I sounded stupid (all the time), where I didn't fit in, what people were probably thinking about me at various points, but...you know what? I'm not going to today. I'm going to take it for how it felt, and it was just...good. As far as I'm concerned, today was amazing. And I'm not going to let myself ruin it this time. :]

They tend to change your weight more than your personality. I take a low estrogen pill and I didn't notice any side effects. The down side with low estro being that if you take the pill even 2 hours late you'll probably start your period early.

I saw steroids!!!! >o<

So I was at the pool today (didn't see my life guard date as she is on afternoons at the moment) and in a lane with me was a big ginger steroid user. He was late 20s and had pretty bad acne all over his shoulders. He also had stupidly large muscles. He waited until I had almost finished the length I was on and pushed off just in front of me. How bloody disrespectful. As though his steroids where going to make him way quicker. Well I smacked his feet all the way for 4 lengths until he got out of the way. Doesn't matter how strong you are, if you thrash about like a fish on a hook you won't go very quickly.
I then caught him up every 8 lengths and overtook him. Eventually he and his mutant body got out and left me a lane to myself.

Three things that p*ss me off. Steroids, bad lane etiquette and gingers! >o<

Everyone's gotta hate on the gingers. I enjoy handsome gingers.

Anyway, I'm going to be quitting Cymbalta cold turkey starting yesterday. I've been wanting to quit for awhile now cause I don't feel like I need it, but I hadn't made an appointment with my doctor about it. Now that I'm no longer on my mummy's insurance, the monthly bottle is $260, so what better time to quit then the present? Teh Intarwebz said I should expect mood swings and the return of manic depressive symptoms, but that seems unlikely since I was taking Cymbalta for anxiety and not depression. I do know that after 2 days I'll be dizzy, lightheaded, and clumsy as all hell. Apparently, that's my brain slowing down. Good thing after today I won't be working for a few days.

There were just too many people in too little space and my personal bubble was horribly violated. Opposed to what Thork said, this didn't keep me from having a life as crowds that large are not a common occurrence. But I seem to be getting over it anyway. During the Thanksgiving holiday I was on 4 different planes and I didn't freak out at all.  Nor did I freak out during my own graduation.

Now I would prefer to be off all meds except for my birth control.

I have this problem but not just large crowds due to social anxiety disorder. I've tried many medications and they did more harm than good, so I have to do without. Though, I was never really interested in having to always take medication to deal with my anxiety. It gets hard at times, but I've been doing a lot better (crowds still freak me out). I still live a normal life and do most things everyone else can do. However, it's not as easy for everyone to live a "normal" life as Thork has said.

I've been prescribed 'mind medication' before but I didn't take it and I don't need anything like that anymore. And I was on sleeping pills for a while but then they made me hallucinate and its not easy to sleep when you think the monkey next to the bed is moving so I stopped them.

Panic attacks are horrible. I started taking anxiety meds in high school. My anxiety was getting worse then and I started to not even go to school a lot of the time. I made so much progress though after high school that I didn't worry about it for a while. More recently I gave them another try, but I had to stop taking them because they made me feel worse.

Probably was Ambien CR?  That shit is ridick.  If you still need sleep aid, try asking for regular Ambien or better yet Lunesta.  They probably have Finnish named counterparts but I'm sure you can figure that out.

If by ridic you mean "so fun" then yes.

I can get insomnia fairly badly due to my anxiety. The best way to sleep without meds is to get up early, have a busy day (which I'm sure is not an issue when you have a child), then have a nice long unwind period. Take a bubble bath, read, or meditate while in bed. The meditating part can be tricky especially when your brain won't stfu, but focusing on your breathing (even chant "in, out") and then focus on relaxing each body part individually.

I can't get an unwind period anymore, Maria won't go to sleep til I go to bed as she is refusing to sleep alone :( But I'm taking melatonin now and it helps a lot without the nasty side effects.

I smoked a lot at uni. I mean like more than anyone I knew. the stronger, the better. It gave me a stutter and my brain would literally micro-pause in everyday life mid-conversation. I think it was more than 5 years after my last joint, before the stutter and micro-pauses disappeared.

I actually think I'm back to normal and all side effects are gone, but my days of messing about with nefarious drugs are over.

I never had any problems sleeping.
It didn't make me depressed.

I remember one week where I just smoked from the minute I got up to the minute I went to bed. By the end of it I craved an independent thought of my own. When I'm high I tend to think about nothing at all. That seems like a waste of time these days.

No, clearly you don't know.

The pill is oestrogen. The female hormone. It is a steroid. It doesn't build muscle like testosterone, but it does change your biology so that you are infertile. Its such a shock to your system that your body does not ovulate properly. However, should you stop taking the pill, you release an egg and you become fertile. If this happens in one day, you'll get pregnant. Extra pills afterwards are not going to undo or take back that released egg. You will remain fertile until your next period. So if you forget in week one, you might still get pregnant in week 3 of your cycle.
The fact young women are taking these powerful drugs and don't understand them is fairly frightening. The amount of life that must be destroyed as a result later is stomach churning. 25% of all pregnancies end in termination.

Nothing, I just don't envy getting pregnant after forgetting to take the pill.
Although, PP's mom says that he's the result of one missed pill.

OHH BURN

That was news to me.

I'm not entirely certain it works that quickly. Although, PP's mom says that he's the result of one missed pill. I'm not sure how much I really believe that though... Especially if the woman resumes taking the pill while unaware of the pregnancy. I would think it would almost be like taking the day after pill but I don't know.

Yes, I'm aware it's estrogen thank you.  ::)
And my period starts soon after I have a missed pill so I don't really have to worry about remaing fertile.

How did you not know, PP? Your mom loves telling that story. Also about how your shoulders were extremely hard to pass during birth. More difficult than A&A's even though he was the fat baby. She loves talking about you and all about creating you. Anyway, a missed pill explains the huge age gap between you two.

ahaha. I don't see why. I always thought "mistake" was a harsh word. Just because you didn't plan a baby doesn't mean they're a mistake. But she never actually called you a mistake anyway. I think it was mostly a way to explain for the age gap.

That's mainly how the pill works but it also thins the blood linning of the uterus making it more likely a fertilised egg will miscarriage. So it's not all doom and gloom, but I wouldn't recomend not taking it on time

Actually it didn't come up. But she just didn't seem very interested. Usually I'd expect a girl to ask me stuff about myself or if she likes me to in some way tell me she likes at least something about me. You know, I like your eyes, you've a great sense of humour, you've a charming smile, I like your accent. Anything really. Lie if you must. But to not give any hint at all. I'm not Paul McKenna.
Anyway I sent a text saying thanks for the really nice evening and stuff and got no reply. Then I saw her today and she just chatted about her car being stuck in the snow and stuff. It doesn't really leave me any place to go. You can't progress if you have absolutely no feedback at all. That's the way to get a slap around the face. So rather than be a pest, I guess that's it. Ball's in her court but I don't think she really felt like hitting it back.

Obviously I don't know how you acted around her in person, but it's possible that she's put off by your low self esteem. People typically don't like people who don't like themselves.

But I said objectively. Take aside all your personal feelings and biases and then tell me all celebrities are ugly. Don't worry about being rejected or any other irrelevant fear about the opposite sex, just pick out a pretty face.

Your enquiry makes no sense. Human attractiveness is a purely subjective judgment. There is no such thing as objective attractiveness.

Not truly objective, but there are features that are nearly universally considered attractive for evolutionary reasons.

I'm not talking about attraction as a whole, just physical attraction. Humans respond well to symmetrical faces in general.

I could say George Clooney is attractive, but he's not my cup of tea.
Megan Fox is attractive, but she's a dadrock bitch.

Yes, people still have personal preferences, but you're just lying if you can't pick out a pretty face even if their personality is shit. Tom Hardy is a dumb chav, in a fantasy world I could not even date that dolt, but he's damn fine.

But it is relevant to the initial discussion. When your options are limited and you rather not be a lonely sap anymore, you pick a pretty face, ask them on a date, and see if there's more there.

Not even late 70s? Still gross though.

I wouldn't label it hipster but it's definitely some alt fashion thing. Anyway, muh point is she's gross! But I recognize that she has/had (I don't know what she looks like post-op) a pretty face.

Physical attraction is an important prerequisite for a relationship. Since physical attraction is much easier to determine than emotional attraction, that's usually where people begin.

In my experience, physical attraction follows from an attractive personality. It's all about how the person acts. If I wanted a pretty face, I'd invest in a mannequin.

So basically you want to date friends. Thork is stepping out into the wide world and is starting from scratch.
People obviously date both ways but it seems like the older you are the more likely you are to just ask an attractive acquaintance on a date rather than your friend.

Attraction to me is a personality thing. It's not possible for me to be attracted to someone without knowing we get along first.

Unless they're on an internet forum

How the hell was I supposed to get my package? He literally knocked, pushed the thing through the door and must have run to the still running van and floored it.
I didn't get my wetsuit. >o<

They were keen to keep me as a customer.  They made the gesture. We both agreed, a transaction was made with both parties knowing the full value of the goods. This is not like offering a member of the public say $5 for a $400 gold necklace and hoping to prey on their naivety.

No. If you play it cool though, you can make sexy time with some sexy ladies after the club closes.

I went to those friends I'm appearing in a film for to film, but they ended up rescheduling and I played a corpse for a silent short they're doing for college. Despite how it sounds, this is a huge yay. I haven't had such an incredible day in a long time. All four of us were just laughing almost all 7.5 hours, laughing when we'd screw up or anything. It was her (the director), her like 30-year old college teacher woman, and the other two from the short film we're doing. We went to one of their houses and she had the most adorable little kitten in the world (something was wrong with her eye, she had it narrowed and blinked a lot, and she shivered almost constantly). She (the cat) is apparently incredibly antisocial, so I made it my goal to win her over. Within 15 minutes she was asleep in my arms on the couch.

Anyways, I ended up being a corpse with toothpaste all over my general mouth area and tweezers in my eyes. The toothpaste burned. A lot. And the bathroom floor was freezing so I was shivering the entire time, and had to hold my breath and force the shivering to stop whenever we were doing a take. I made jokes and they laughed, a miracle, and they made me laugh more and I was amazed to find people with such a similar sense of humour. As someone who tends to be a hell of a loner, it was just incredible. All of us got along, and when the teacher was gone we played Cards Against Humanity and just laughed the whole hour or so we played.

But wow, yeah. I just feel really giddy getting back from that. HAPPY SUPES :D

Also, a bunch of the toothpaste got in my hair and now there are clumps that are stuck together and crusty. And the fake blood didn't come off so well, so now half of my face is pretty red. And she put makeup to make me look pale (to which I said "do you really need makeup for that?" and they laughed and I was like "omg are they laughing"). Plus I had kind of an ego boost. I hate telling stories that put me in a good light because I feel like I'm bragging and I hate bragging or saying anything good about me, but...I was in their first movie, and they told the teacher how they'd seen me in plays and were amazed and like "'____ was kind of a legend in theatre, but ____ never talked to anyone (s)he was kind of a mystery. But then (s)he responded to our flyer and I was like '[friend]. ___' and she was like 'what about him/her' and I was like '(s)he wants to be in our movie'". (good luck making sense of that)

I heard and was all "nuh-uh, you're lying" but they were all "no, seriously". Then during Cards Against Humanity, I don't remember what came up, something about ruined sex lives, and she glanced at me and was like "well, that's not fair, she could get laid if she wanted" and I almost sprayed soda from my nose when I laughed, then they all laughed at my reaction and it was fun. Obviously they were just trying to be nice both times, but still, it did feel kinda good. I can't say I believe them, though. :P

Sorry for all that, and sorry for babbling at the end there. I know it sounds like I'm trying to humble brag or something, but I really just wanted to bring them up 'cause it's rare I ever hear anything like that, so even if it's not true it still was kinda heartwarming to see that there are even people that care. I wish I hung out with them more often.

If you wish you hung out with them more often, hang out them them more often. Send a text offering to meet them all at a bar or something (I have no idea how old you are, btw).


Speaking of texts, do the incredibly well adjusted members of this society think it would be weird to send a happy v-day text to a crush? For context, due to bullshit going on in my personal life (most notably my brother being in and out of the hospital for his mental issues) I've been putting off asking her out.

Just don't think it would be a good idea


I'm probably about as well-adjusted as it gets here. Read: not very. However, yeah, text this person. Even if it's not Valentines day anymore. Just ask.


Don't spill your guts. Have reasonable expectations, and ask. E.g., I'd like to go for a drink with this person: "Hey X, so, wanna go for X?" Or something. You know this person better than anyone else here, crush or not. There is no secret wisdom. Just be reasonable.


This is reasonable situational advice. We don't know you or this person. So we don't really know anything.  My only serious long-term advice is this: you will not like some people who like you, and some people you like will not like you. When the latter is true, behave as you hope you would if you were the 'unliked'. When the former is true, imagine yourself at the other end.

No, we don't.

Let me give you an anecdotal example from work on V-day. (I work at a grocery store.) This nervous guy was buying his girl a case of flowers and a big box of chocolate. I made some comment about sticking to the classics and he said he didn't want to screw it up. But he was getting her something so he couldn't have screwed it up. Husbands were buying their wives beer, dinner, and a card cause they know how it is.

For a girl, all that's really important is that you're thinking about her. That you took the time and made the effort, the actual gift or wording is irrelevant and will likely be forgotten.

If you like someone that you're already friends with you shouldn't worry fret so much. She already likes you enough to be your friend so that's a great start. People are usually flirting if they're into each other, you just need to pay more attention to that.

I have two sisters and I have a long term gf. They're not as complicated to buy for as they used to be, but I still have to scratch my head for birthdays and Christmas.

I said "girl" but this guy was in his thirties.... Females are not complicated to buy for. You either ask them and they tell you, or they don't tell you so it's not a big deal and then you just buy them something. Again, presents that aren't asked for likely won't be remembered outside of a year.

Quote
And from what I can remember from the conversation:

  • Should you kiss on the first date
  • If the guy wants sex on the first date does that mean he's not interested in anything else?
  • If a guy doesn't contact you after a day does that mean he's not interested?
  • What should you wear on the first date?
  • Do I need to buy another dress?
  • Why hasn't he contacted me yet it's been a few days since our first date?
  • I always seem to be contacting him, is he interested?

The list goes on.
None of that is complicated at all..
1. depends on how long you've known the guy and how much you like each other.
2. it might. if a guy was hinting at sex on first date then you should not date the pig again, unless that's all you want.
3. depends on what the date is, or what the restaurant is.
4. i dunno? buy a new dress for a date? no, that's silly.
5. if it's been a few days then he's not interested, darling.
6. then stop contacting him and see if he reaches out.

see, none of that had to be over-thought. but people just get nervous and over-think things.

I've been having front end issues with my car lately. I've had a bad vibration which I thought was either a bad wheel bearing or a bad lower ball joint or bad upper control arm. Took it to my friend's shop today, looks like my issue is the brake proportioning valve went bad, as well as the rubber hose lines to the front brakes. This is causing my brakes to engage but not fully release, which is causing the vibration I am feeling because the brakes are constantly engaged and heating up, warping the rotors a bit which makes the wheels vibrate.

The rubber lines are cheap, my issue now is what the price of the valve will end up being, as no local supplier has it and it has to be ordered from my car's manufacturer (if they still make it). Luckily, my friend said it shouldn't be too expensive, as valves on similar cars have generally been less than US$100. I can get the labor done for free.

I made a website with Drupal today. It was remarkably easy. The only glitch was the people that posted the free layout I used tried to make it so their logo was always on the page. I broke their code and wrote my own, but I still would like to know how they did it. Every .../logo.png in the layout folder links to their logo even though I removed the .png from the server. Tomorrow I'll prolly look into how they did that. They wrote the link's code with a PHP variable from a parent page, but that all looked legit. Something is catching the .../logo.png code and replacing it with a link to their -- what I'm assuming is an off-site link -- logo even when you put the full path to a different image named .../logo.png. It would be like uploading an image named tree.png here and putting in http://www.theflatearthsociety.org/tree.png in your browser and having it show a car. Can a .htaccess file do that? I'll find out!

Some woman in her car was waiting for pedestrian traffic to clear so that she could exit the parking lot. I could have waited and let her go, but I decided that I didn't care about her life. As I jauntily strut out into the intersection, she suddenly veered out into the road and came within about two feet of smashing me. Then, as if from nowhere, the tiniest black man came up next to me and said something like "did you see that? She gives black people everywhere a bad name!" That man was seriously only slightly taller than four feet. I should have taken a picture with him.

You are bawling your eyes out about a book of a f*cking computer game? What the hell is wrong with you? It meant way too much to your childhood? It meant your childhood was spent playing computer games by yourself in your bedroom. :(

This is awful. If ever there were examples of the human tragedy behind gaming, its Supertails bawling his eyes out by himself in his room as the haunting images that robbed him of a childhood are espoused from his book. The loneliness, the isolation from other children, the false friendships made with in-game characters. A shell-shocked generation of emotionally stunted and fragile young adults is now left picking up the pieces. No wonder Supertails is frightened of people with genitals. He's from a world where sex doesn't exist. Just androgynous Japanese cartoon characters, fighting monsters and demons. Supertails need to fight his demons now. He should start by growing a set and not crying like a little girl over a book of a computer game. ::)

@Particle Person: Holy crap that was amazing. I've heard of her and heard her stuff before (her song 'Crystallize', at least) and seen her play Link in a FreddieW video, but I have never seen her do something that epic. Hyrule Field Main Theme and Gerudo Valley sounded brilliant on violin, I kind of wish she'd do full covers of a few songs now. Emilie Autumn made me fall in love with violin, so now stuff like this just makes me desperate to hear more. I am going to have to hit YouTube and find out if she has any more Zelda. ;o;

@Rooster: WELL you just gained 100,000 awesomeness in my book because Zelda Zelda. Which game was your favourite? For me it's Majora's Mask followed by Wind Waker, and after that it's more debatable. And you're going to cosplay Sheik? I am incredibly jealous, Sheik is one of my absolute favourite characters. ;__; I would love to cosplay Sheik sometime if I had the money and opportunity, she is just amazing.

And I have never played Majora's Mask, unfortunately. Buuut, I'm tempted to hook up my N64 after playing Particle's yesterday (which means I would take back my cool see-through blue/green controller PP) so maybe I could find the game through Amazon or something.

Sheik is my favorite and I would definitely post pictures. :3

The controls, mainly. I guess it's commendable that they attempted motion controls given the hardware, but let's face it, it was never going to be as precise as what you would expect from button-based controls. They figured out that when every tenth input comes across as something else entirely, they can't make the combat as fast-paced or varied as in the previous games, so what it boils down to is, every fucking enemy is like a mini-game where they block in a certain way, indicating that you have to swing in a certain direction to beat them. And that gets old really fast. Gone are the special attacks from TP or countering from WW, and when enemies have a tendency to change their block at the last fraction of a second, and you're constantly flailing your sword in the wrong direction due to unreliable controls, it becomes an exercise in futility and frustration. The best you can do in pretty much any scenario is stand still and keep flailing until the enemy drops down.

As for the game itself, the sky overworld is boring and empty, areas are rehashed and revisited *a lot*, dungeons are linear and simplistic and don't really "sprawl", and the sidekick makes Navi look like an extremely fun companion to have around by comparison.
Title: Re: A Friendly Chat

I played Twilight Princess on the Wii and it wasn't too terrible so that's weird that they'd change the fighting mechanics.

Title: Re: A Friendly Chat
Post by: Blanko on March 05, 2013, 10:27:28 AM
TP's motion controls are fine because they didn't try to implement directional swinging, meaning swinging your Wiimote is pretty much an equivalent to pressing B on the GameCube pad, so there's really not much of a risk of a wrong input with that system.

Yeah, I think Blanko pretty much covered what makes it awkward. It's still worth playing, though. There are some really annoying things to get through, but there are also lots of fun things that utilize the motion controls. Getting used to them was the biggest problem in the beginning, which is understandable.  There were things that I never could do very well, like the fucking harp minigame  >:(   I think the most annoy times were when you absolutely need to move the wiimote in a particular way.  As usual, the water portion was the hardest, but once I figured out how to make Link swim properly, I think it was the most satisfying. TADTONES!

Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword ~ 19-GP "Harp Playing & Kina's Singing" (http://#ws)

This minigame should have been so easy, but I wanted to kill Kina and throw her off the island before I finally got those fuckers to clap a little bit.  Fortunately when you really have to play the harp to advance in the game it isn't quite as sensitive to mistakes.

I just got my N64 back, if I get some more time I'm going to buy a new controller (all the pokes of my old controllers are shit, the only thing bad about N64) and going to play majora's mask again. Never played that till the end.

It wasn't as good as Ocarina of Time. Still a fan, though.

I used to work with a company that hired maid contractors to service foreclosed homes (as well as landscaping/mowing) and I think I can say a maid service probably wouldn't be that bad to work for.  It generally takes about an hour for two people to fully service most places provided there aren't any surprises, and once you get in the groove you probably don't even really notice the time passing.

Some "nobody here cares" news: If anyone else here has heard of My Chemical Romance's disbanding, then you can probably guess approximately how I feel today. The Black Parade has meant so much to me on a personal level, they made music I could identify with, that spoke to me, was occasionally incredibly cathartic, and so on. I'd been anticipating their next album eagerly, constantly on the edge of my seat any time any tidbit of news about it leaked, and now I get to know that there isn't going to be one. I am, at least for a little while, miserable and grieving. To nobody's surprise, I cried when I first read it when I woke up this morning. :[

So at the moment I'm listening to their last three albums (as the first was pretty terrible) in honour of losing one of my top few favourite bands/artists. Hopefully whatever they go on to do on their own (please, God, let them go do other projects and not quit music) will be fantastic, because I'll gladly follow each of their individual projects. I just really, really hope that whatever they go do on their own will be nearly as good as their work as an amazing collective.

Farewell, My Chemical Romance. I wish I'd discovered you earlier so I could've gone along for the ride and actually seen you live. :'(

Post by: Thork on March 24, 2013, 06:13:09 PM
Back when I was a young man and dinosaurs were commonplace, I used to listen to Guns 'n' Roses amongst other things, but they were my favourite band. Anyway I was eagerly anticipating their next album and I was given "The Spaghetti Incident". How that was supposed to follow Use Your Illusions and Appetite for Destruction, I don't know. And in some ways that was worse, Supertails. Rather than splitting up and leaving me with fond memories and grandiose nostalgia I am left with an entire album over covers including "Buick Mackain" and "You Can't Put Your Arms Around a Memory". >o<

At least your band has had the good grace to die before heaping an abomination upon fans. I was relieved when Axl Rose announced he was going to put his hair in corn rows and go solo, because I knew it meant I wouldn't have to suffer any more. :'(

No, no, I mean people died, preventing them from getting back together. Not that people died while they were still together. I firmly believe that if Lennon hadn't been killed they'd have at least done a concert together at some point.

Actually, Pink Floyd had a reunion in 2005, and the Clash seems to have a reunion every few years. Lennon died 10 years after the breakup of the Beetles, and Zeppelin, Van Halen, The Who, CCR, Springsteen, The Police, Yes, Rage Against the Machine, The Beach Boys and Fleetwood Mac (over and over again) have all had reunion tours.

I consider reunion concerts to be reunions, because they clearly are, and Plant said he's open to touring again if the other two are. Revisited might as well be a reunion of Revival, and just because the E Street band is just a back-up band for Springsteen doesn't mean they didn't break up and then have a reunion. The breakup was essentially just getting fired, but it was still a breakup. I concede Van Halen, I just kind of assumed they broke up after Sammy left.

Anyway, the point is that Supes shouldn't worry too much and that they'll probably do a reunion at some point that he can go see. Is that really so controversial?

So these ladies I work with make me feel like a genius. It's great for my ego but also really destroys my perception of humanity. I've also noticed that I start mimicking their southern accent (which I do not have) when I'm with them. This is a terrible habit that must die quickly.

CLASS WAR


Why does everyone think they're for equality and that everybody should be treated with the same respect, then come out with stuff like this?
wat

When did I give you the impression that they deserve less respect because they have an accent and no degree? I think that comment says more about your own feelings than it does my own.

I shot a fetish party last night. Got some cool photos, though the people doing the kinky stuff didn't want anyone taking their photos so they were in a different room. Oh well.

I don't even have a choice about one of them because it's basically rotting in my head and hurts like a motherfucker.  The dentist said the other two (one was already taken out) are impacted.  Might as well get them all done while I do the one.  Which makes sense.  Only, you know, pain.

If she's evil, why is she celebrated by half the country? I'm not a supporter of hers at all but I think it's a bit rich to think my opinion is the only one.
And I think it's just bare weird when people I know want someone to die and laugh at their illness. Where does it stop? Who else do we want dead?

Some people liked her because she did benefit them at the time but facts are not the same as opinion and the facts are that many of her policies harmed the country even to this day (helped of course by the subsequent governments).

People are shitty and people die. There's nothing wrong with an opinion, it's not a crime to be relieved over a death. Laughing might be a little weird though, there's nothing really humorous about an old woman dying.

I don't remember saying it's a crime, only that I consider it a bit of a poor show. I'd be relieved if somebody's death resulted in a positive action - a war or genocide ending for example, but people only celebrate her death because she somehow 'earned' it.

I have been fired from that horrible, awful job, hoooooray! After cleaning houses for 12 hours last week I was done. I didn't really want to quit since that would make me feel like, well, a quitter, so they made it easy for me.

The fortunate thing is that the call happened right after I set up an appointment to have my typing speed, excel, and word knowledge tested for the place my boo works at. But, if I don't get this job I will be in a crap situation. Although I'm fairly confident. I'm aware of the retarts he works with.

Right now though, I'm just celebrating my freedom.
