Don't bother PMing me roger, I'm not going to read it, or anything you care to say.

Apparently, rather than trying to get people to be decent to each other and stop fucking their own habitat up, social justice advocates actually hate all humanity and have no hope for the future whatsoever, is what I'm getting out of this.

That, and also the big glaring question of why an abusive, manipulative pathological liar known primarily for his remarkable ability to carry a grudge over shit he imagined has mod powers on this forum, which at one point in time was great due to its focus on critical thinking.

I have feels about this and I'm not sure whether being snarky or explaining them in a truthful, honest way would be better.

I like it here and don't want to be run off, like everyone else who's been on the shit end of Roger's behavior and called him out publicly has been done, except for Nigel.

All I know is that I am furious with keeping my mouth shut.

Someone unfriended me on FB because I told him his method of evaluating a fucking card in Magic was wrong.

Sounds like he did you a favor.

Yeah that.

Gonna Mark All As Read.

So I kinda feel like my advisor is off the deep end.

She wants preliminary results for a project she's been sitting on for three years but we just started this Fall. She wants these results in a month. She wants me to figure out from scratch with no guidance how to use imaging software no one else in the lab knows how to use, that was designed for immunofluorescence, to quantify IHC-DAB. She gave me about four days to figure this out, and to perform a validation experiment using tissue from a previous grad student who is gone. Going through that student's data, I already can see and know beyond a shadow of a doubt that the previous data, which has been accepted for publication, is bad. At least the cell counts for the supraoptic nucleus are bad. I don't have time to deal with this and it's also not my problem, but I have a feeling it is about to become my problem on top of having three weeks to process and assay 124 brains.

The reason she has a problem with bad data is because her approach to training is to throw a project at a student and tell them to figure it out, just as she is doing with me right now. If she had taken 20 minutes to train the last student, they would have known that they were counting cells in a region caudal to the supraoptic nucleus, and this data would not be bad. I can correctly quantify staining in these tissues, but I can't use these tissues to validate my method because the existing data is bad... this is a waste of my time. And everyone else's time.

Oh fuck.

Come to donate plasma, wearing the most comfortab le, light clothing possible, because it's Tucson, it's summer, and there's been no rain. I get up to check in, they're like, "Those are pajama pants, you can't donate." FFS they're just pants I'm so fucking pissed right now. This is some bullshit.

It probably sounds ridiculous, but there are people who donate plasma who make a dress code deeply, deeply necessary partly so  that nice people like you also feel safe and comfortable donating plasma.

I suppose that sounds logical. It's just hard when I don't have money to buy pants and it's hot and everything.

??? What do pajama pants have to do with donating???

I don't know, the only reason they sent me home was "We have a dress code, and pajamas are not allowed."

Clearly, you had ulterior motives in replacing their toasters. You're a menace to society and need to be stopped.

My students seem to think there is a serial cat burglar breaking into kitchens to put toasters in there, and they are very concerned about it.

Please kill me.

That is hilariously bizarre.
