It's tumblr, right?

It's real.

I just had to have a talk with my own kid about why there is nothing "oppressive" about not diagnosing people under 18 (IMO 23-25 would be more appropriate, in fact) with personality disorders. Because different parts of the brain undergo major developmental surges at different times, effectively making everyone whose brain isn't done growing "disordered" if you held them to adult standards.

Fucking Tumblr.

That's great news, Demosquid!

In other news, I am reacquainting myself with the dubious joys of online takeaway ordering in London.  BURGERS, FUCK YEAH!

Mmmm, burgers!

The  last burger I had was one of those horrifying yet wonderful 2-for-$2 McDonald's cheeseburgers. America, fuck yeah!

Sheep, Gluten destroys lives!

I am fairly certain that most people don't even know what gluten is.

If you are not currently high, get real high and watch this:

I am not high on the marijuanas, but I am eating enchiladas and that is basically the same thing.

Now that I'm taking genetics I just started using math again after a fairly long hiatus (because apparently biologists don't math, LOL), but it's mostly just simple statistical stuff.

Well shit, I think I'm coming down with something.

I hope it's a troll too... but I've been let down so many times.

Unrelated; I love it when people ask if you'll be home at a certain time so they can come pick something up, and two hours later they haven't arrived and it's too fucking late to go run the errands you meant to run today.

It's my fucking favorite.

The body builders and counting reminds me of when I worked with adults with Down's syndrome. In math class much of the day focused on addition and subtraction using a number line.

A student asked me why 1 + 1 doesn't = 11 and I kind of just flailed around with words for several minutes before we moved on to something else. What sort of black magic had this woman tapped into?

Well, intelligence IS a spectrum, so...

We have a thetan wall?

Fuck.

WELL GOOD JOB EVERYONE, THAT WAS A NICE SECRET FORUM WE HAD THERE ONCE

I always ruin things.  :sad:

Sadly there is no scene where Chris Kyle talks to an empty chair.  Though Kyle did claim he beat the shit out of Jesse Ventura, a claim that was subsequently proven false (in a court of law, no less.  Defamation suits are very hard to win in the US, but Ventura did so).

He also voiced a whole bunch of unsavoury opinions about Iraqis and basically said it was fun to torment them.

Well that's... icky.

Grandfather update!

He's surprised the doctors by making an impressive recovery in the past few days. Apparently they rate these things on a scale of 0-15 and he was at a 5. He is now at a 10! My parents saw him today and he responded to their questions with blinks. He also seemed to smile when my mum said that she'd be back to see him next weekend... and she's convinced he was glaring at my grandmother when she moved into his line of sight. I'm a bit loathe to read too much into that, but...

Either way, really good news. He's made it past 7 days. At 10 days, the doctors plan for the next month. He's definitely not out of the woods yet, but given I was expecting him to be gone by today, I'm really hopeful. Especially since - according to my parents at least - he seemed very aware and quite coherent (my dad noticed he seemed to be trying to push himself up into a sitting position and asked if that's what he wanted, and he blinked for yes).

It is far too early to have any great expectations, but it is hard not to. Either way, I'm hoping to go up and see him next weekend. We're getting together an electronic photoframe to load with pictures from past holidays/events and a radio/cd player with headphones so we can hopefully give him something to concentrate on when we're not there.

Oh, that is great to hear!

That was a whole raft of A FUCKING MAZING.

It was kind of up there with the white girl on the athiest cat group telling me that she knows better than me what I should be offended by, and following it up with whining about how everyone always thinks she's white. I didn't stick around to find out whether she was trans-black or 1/128th Cherokee. :lol:

Well Nigel, that's because you've chosen to be white, and so your opinion is irrelevant:



Wha... I just... I...

If you stick around and participate, eventually you'll get access. It's basically just gated to keep nonparticipants from seeing our clever plans.

Oh yeah I forgot about that.

You guys have to donate and get a thetan adjustment first.

I sometimes forget just how much of the good stuff is behind the thetan-wall. Maybe that's why newbs always seem to think we're boring and never do anything fun.  :lol:
