Mine too, Nigel,  mine too.  :sadbanana:

They live pretty affluent lives for being so damn poor.

Seriously. I just had this awful conversation with it about why it's not OK to make fun of people for things they have no control over, like being straight and cis, and it was like "No,  it's OK to make fun of people as long as they aren't oppressed for things I think I'm oppressed for" and I was like AAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHH what have I even tried to instill in you, you total entitled asshole.

My oldest biological offspring is seriously irritating the fuck out of  me right now. For one thing, it's bragging on the internet about all the foods it won't eat. Like that's some kind of virtue other than being spoiled as fuck. For another thing, it keeps talking to other internet things as if it's a member of an oppressed minority. I might be able to swallow this shit if it in any way recognized me as a human being who struggles, but it basically sees me as some kind of horrifying oppressor because I expect it to go to school and do its own laundry. This despite the fact that I actually grew up poor and abused and colored, and this little lily-white lazy motherfucking asshole has been sheltered as fuck and taken care of its whole life.

And it sips its Dr. Pepper and complains about how boring some video game is even as I type this.

You know, seriously, I question whether I should even have reproduced. This level of sheer entitlement came out of my womb. This stupid little fuck has never been hungry, has never really been hurt, and thinks the whole world owes it something.

From Cracked today:

when he beheld in his mind that image, Eris, goddess of discord, was able to enter this world through it. Her arrival plunged his brain into madness, and this next paragraph is an extended anagram for her chaotic prophecies.

The Eris meme is spreading fast, but IMO most people who pick up on it still completely misinterpret the concept into a small selfish arena.

When I am rich

I will be able to pay my bills

When I am rich

I'll eat a variety of foods at every meal.

When I am rich

I'll be able to buy clothes that fit well.

When I am rich

I'll buy my own home.

When I am rich

I'll paint my walls whatever color I want.

When I am rich

I'll go wherever I want without worrying about being asked to leave.

When I am rich

People will treat me like a real human being.

Argh I need to do many things! So many things! Sigh.

Here's a few pictures of the campus I'm going to: 

Since it's up in Oro Valley, they've made sure to put pretty plants and rocks next to the road and all around the place, all perfectly just so and "wild" looking.

Hey I taught two semesters of chemistry at that campus many years ago. It was my first time as an adjunct.

Ooooh, is this back when adjunct professors still made enough to keep them above the poverty line??

Not really. $3.2k for 4 credits. It was good work experience and they were organized about it. But it was weird being 1 of 10-20 adjuncts in a department with only 2 full time faculty.

But I don't know how long ago it was, or how much time 4 credits is worth in your university system. If you're talking the equivalent of Oregon in 1971, that's a pretty tidy sum.

It was about 7 years ago. It wasn't great pay but it helped keep the family comfortable. Four credits were for a typical lecture+laboratory 15-week course. I taught second semester gen. chem. there and most of the students were hoping to transfer the credit to a 4 year degree. I gather you're in a 10-week system?

Good luck with your paperwork!

Yes, quarter system. I hate quarters. A 4-credit course is your typical undergraduate lecture course, genchem is 5 credits with lab, ochem is 6 credits with lab.

Paperwork will be fine, just irritating. Thanks!

Were you ever in the semester system? I had to figure out quarters when I moved to CA for schooling. It took me a while to get used to it. I think I like the semesters better.

Nope. I just can't seem to help noticing that all the textbooks are written for semesters, which means that we typically rush through them while glossing over some stuff and leaving other things out entirely (insert running joke about skipping chapter 9).

It tends to work fine for any classes that are taught as full-year sequences, because 3 quarters is the same as two semesters. But for ANYTHING ELSE it sucks ass. Molecular bio was nightmarish.

Plus I can hear everything she says because my office is right next to the bathroom. FFS.

Anything blackmailable?

Sadly, no.

I think we should add "If you were REAL Discordians my encoded tangle of images and word salad would have made perfect sense to you" to the checklist.

Hey jonb, we already have Hirley0, and he's the real deal. I've seen your posts on other forums and am fully aware that your "I such a rAnDoM guy" act is as much pretense as a 7-year-old talking in a Sailor Moon voice.

And just as irritating.

Is that a flounce post? Oh please let that be a flounce post.

I don't know, I thought the previous one was a flounce post.

IF ONLY THERE WERE SOME FORM OF COMMUNICATION WHERE SPECIFIC STRUNG TOGETHER SYMBOLS CONVEYED MEANING

IF ONLY INDEED.

I dunno, dealing with a pathological sex maniac every day of your life since the 1970s sounds a LOT like learning how to deal with America.

We have terrible Thai in Boston.  Most of the asian immigrants are Vietnamese, though, so I ain't complainin' when I get me some Pho.

That might be worth the tradeoff.
