Somewhat annoyed at being nagged at for the third time in two weeks by my friend that i'm taking too long to give my turns in his Pathfinder campaign. Fuck me for not taking this GAME seriously enough.
That sucks.

A different perspective: Your friend may see this game as a symbol for your friendship, or maybe it is one of the few things that keeps them sane.

Dude, he's not responsible for his friend's sanity. That's fucked-up. Seriously.

My advice; just drop the game if it's causing you stress.

Today's near miss brought to you by forklift driver, carrying a load, going backwards...WHILE TEXTING!!! This is my third near miss with this same dude. The other two were backwards around a corner with no horn. Kind of at the point where I can't not report this one. I fucking hate that.

Reporting the fucktard is a hell of a lot better than someone getting killed by him.

My grandmother died this weekend, they just found her.

This week just got really fucking interesting.

Sorry to hear that, Suu. :(

After empirical observation I conclude I am cursed

OR

I joined the Wrong Religion.

I hope it's the latter, then all you bastards are in the same boat.

That's what community is all about.

I'm gonna go with "Alaska".

Mozzarella sticks are all glory and awesome. Man, I'd try that. I'd take some knitting and eat me some cheesy sticks with a fork so as not to get greasy fingers on my yarn and be rich and well knit and stuffed to bursting with cheese.

Mmmmm. Cheese.

Also, I too have seen that Trivial Pursuit Ketchup thing and it is a lie.

I wouldn't be so fast on the draw until you've tried TGIF mozzarella sticks.

Also, I really want to know what her poop was like the next day.

Mamma needs to grow a set of ovaries and kick that brat out.

From what I've seen, voices depend upon biographical experience. But what is biographical experience after all? Family interactions, the oh-so-broad term "experiences", and yes, of course, local culture.

So, i dont know, its nice validation that the schizophrenic experience is something more than "bad biological/physiological functioning" dictating everything, other than that i dont see the value or use of this finding.

It's not exactly news, but it is confirmation that cultural attitudes shape the experience of the mentally ill, and that in the US we have a particularly harsh/negative (I might even say punitive) attitude toward mental illness. We are, after all, only about a generation away from an era when we simply locked them up in warehouse-like sanitariums where they were drugged, experimented on, and if difficult to control, chained to the wall and hosed down.

In this case, who knows, anthropological confirmation of what psychologists already know may help build that body of knowledge up to the point where it has enough weight to effect a cultural shift in how we perceive mental illness.

It's interesting stuff.

That was fucking hilarious. I love her.

Still not sure I'm convinced.

Obviously there is the objective definition that none of us have access to, and then there is the subjective definition(s) that are interpreted and reinterpreted and reinterpreted and reinterpreted and reinterpreted ad infinitum until one of them got to your wonderful little sensing organ (not that one, the OTHER sensing organ. No, I didn't mean it was small; stop being so insecure.).

I'm asking for lots of reasons, but I will boil it down to five:
1. Seemed like a good first thread
2. I just read the book last night (yea, all by myself)
3. I HAD to know.
4. Another awesome reason
5. My mommy made me do it

I'm also curious how all of you stumbled upon it. I'll need specific times, dates and places unless you were stoned or drunk. In that case, I'll just settle for whatever days, times and places you feel like saying. Circumstances would be nice too, though not too much detail because no one wants to hear your life story unless you say they do.

1994, Oakland, California. I met and made friends with Arkuat of the Pigdog Cabal via a dialup BBS, probably The Cheese Vault. He told me I was a Discordian, but didn't know it yet.

You know who has surprised me with the border children issue?  Glenn Beck.

Glenn Beck says he has come under fierce attack from some of his fellow conservatives for a grave transgression.

His crime? He announced plans to bring food, water, teddy bears and soccer balls to at least some of the tens of thousands of Central American children who have crossed the border into the United States.

“Through no fault of their own, they are caught in political crossfire,” Beck said. “Anyone, left or right, seeking political gain at the expense of these desperate, vulnerable, poor and suffering people are reprehensible.”

Beck, not averse to a certain grandiosity, let us know that “I’ve never taken a position more deadly to my career than this.” But assume he’s right — and he may well be. It’s one more sign of how the crisis at our border has brought out the very worst in our political system and a degree of plain nastiness that we should not be proud of as a nation.

When Republican talking points are to the right of Glenn Beck, you know something has gotten fucked up.

Wut

Wait

I'm so confused... I think reality might have sprung a leak.

This thread is now making me wonder what lung tissue's texture is like. I picturing something like a cross between clams and mushrooms.
I wonder how lung would go as a replacement for pork in gyoza? Hmmm....

It's kind of tender and crumbly, when done well. Pretty tasty.

Fresh haggis is fantastic.  Any other kind of haggis is an abomination.

Twid seems to be the only one ITT who has actually had haggis, and not some kind of offal abomination, because he knows it tastes spicy.  And that's because there is a ton of seasoning and spices already present in haggis.  Oatmeal, onions, nutmeg, sea salt, black pepper, parsley, thyme, sage and mace at minimum.

I've had haggis. I've had good haggis and bad haggis. Good haggis is delicious, but again, I like organ meats.
