Yeah... kinda reminds me of the guy in one of Roger's stories, who was drumming and dancing until he ended up in a different reality, because this one was so obviously wrong.

...after reading one too many shaming threads in a group of otherwise intelligent people.

Let's just face a few facts here. If you have kids, you are a breeder who is overpopulating the planet. If you don't have kids, you are selfish and you'll regret it when it's too late, and you'll start popping out damaged kids like Sarah Palin does.

If you like to have sex, you're a slut, and if you don't like to have sex you're a prude. If you're a woman, you're either a slut or you're a ball-buster who is out to oppress men. If you're a guy, you're either a rapist or a beta.

If you like to drink, you're a lush, and if you don't, you're a square and probably a crypto-theist. If you smoke pot you're a useless lop of shit, and if you don't, you've betrayed the cause and are no longer cool.

If you are fat, you're what's wrong with America. If you're skinny, you must be anorexic. If you're in between, don't worry, the skinny people will call you fat and the fat people will call you bulimic.

If you're poor, it's because you choose to live that way. If you're rich, you're a monster. If you're middle class, you don't exist at all.

If you're THIS, you reek of privilege, and if you're THAT you're a slactivist, and if you're DEAD, it's because you wore a hoodie and couldn't obey the police.

You can't win. You can't break even. You can't even quit the game.

 You should be ashamed of yourself, you awful person.

:mittens: Is good.

You know, I was thinking about this just the other day. The natural fermentation process in my current Holy NameTM has gotten a little out of control, and things are getting a little musty in here.

The Emperor's Hairy Right Hand.

Thank you, everyone. I'm okay, but I havent spent time with the rest of the family yet, specifically his sons (15 and 12). I'll probably be all messed up after that.

In better news, I learned that my resting heart rate is 53, down from 65-ish one year ago. Feeling pretty alive right now.

My uncle passed away Wednesday night.

Nothing much to say, really, but I figured I ought to follow up after dropping my problems in Open Bar a few days ago.

Speaking of procrastination, I went and saw this lady speak last week:

Oh, she's GOOD.

She really, REALLY is. Someone asked her whether she was concerned that neuroscience was sucking the mystery out of life, and she just cocked her head and said, kind of wistfully, "You know, people ask about the mystery and I think about all the people I've known with schizophrenia, Alzheimer's, Huntington's Disease, Parkinson's, muscular dystrophy, bipolar disorder... what were you saying about 'mystery'?"

Hear, hear!

People who think the mystery of life can be dispelled by learning things are either pitiably misguided or have incredibly small imaginations.

Imagine all of human knowledge as a big sphere, and the outer edge of that sphere is mystery. When you expand human knowledge, you push the surface of that sphere further outward. This increases the surface area of the sphere, thereby increasing the total amount of mystery.

You can pretend I'm smoking a clove cigarette and sipping a latte while I say the above statement.

I just got counseled for not falling asleep in a meeting, and for not doing work that had been taken out of my hands.

I am of course behaving badly now.


There's nothing better than "I don't want you do to the thing" followed by "WHY DIDN'T YOU DO THE THING?"

My source tells me that Lillie is trying to goad me into insubordination.

Puny human!  I dealt with PROFESSIONALS trying to get me to do that for TEN YEARS in the military.

I am now being exceptionally reasonable, with the caveat that - unlike the military - there is no provision for non-verbal disrespect.  Like a GRIN.

I could see THAT grin driving Lillie all the way around the bend.  :lol:

Yeah, this is now a matter of honor.   :lulz:

OH how I wish this would be available on video!

You'd have to do it in time lapse photography.  She hates me so much she can only stand to be around me a few minutes a day.

I am finding things that I need to consult with her on, and then making the conversations unnecessarily protracted.

And I GRIN a lot.  With a hard hat and sunglasses on, so all she can see is the facial hair, which her husband tells me is some kind of weird phobia of hers.

You, sir, are a fucking ARTIST. :lulz:

Thanks for the sympathy everyone, although now I feel like a goober for dropping that and then fucking off for days.

May is my new February. This has been a real shitter of a month, as far as my normally charmed life goes.

My uncle is comatose in the hospital right now, following a heart attack. Outlook is not good.

I may be kind of a downer for a while.

Ho ho ho! :lulz:

A mere seven and a half-ish years.

I have a feeling that Jeremy Renner calling BW a "slut" didn't help matters.

I guess not, but I haven't been paying attention.

Deciding how petty I want to be.

Someone sprung a surprise inspection on my kitchen today.  Said kitchen is a mess, because I'm in the middle of essay fever, and because I do my writing in the kitchen (its the room with a lounge).  Thing is, I took some time out to check the exact rights I have here, and despite my contract stating that this is a licensed occupancy, the actual conditions mean I'm an assured shorthold tenant, and so they can't simply come barging in here.

Funny thing is, they've screwed themselves on the contract.  They want to claim I am a licensee, but service occupancy only occurs if I'm required to live in, as part of my job.  And I'm not.  So they can either choose to treat me as a licensee, but negate my rent (as its required for the job), or else they have to give the same rights any private tenant has.  I wont push that just yet, as the company is going to restructure the whole rent system over the summer...but I'll keep it in mind, if they try anything foolish.

That's SO FUCKED UP. I hope that however it plays out, when you leave you nail their balls for SOMETHING.

Angry email was sent.

I'm looking for another job anyway, but seriously.  It's like people here need laws to make them not act like dickweeds...referencing common decency is not sufficient.

In other news, Joss Whedon is a sexist pig and piece of shit:

Yes, we've reached the point where self-described feminist creator of Buffy the Vampire Slayer is sexist.

I... what?

I haven't seen Age of Ultron yet, does this have something to do with Black Widow not getting EXACTLY what the hive mind wanted, in a movie with 800 characters?

Loving the Shameless Slander series. It's very lucky that Doktor Howl doesn't know that part of my family has historical involvement with a Communist cult (that exists to this day, I learned only a few years ago), lest more lies be spread.
