You guys have a legit problem with making new people feel welcome. Anyone whom is slightly immature you label poptart and ban.

Not true

you're still here.

Is it weird to write the week's role playing game's plot in your head while you slap someone around?

Because it seems weird.

Maybe it was weird in the 20th century.

Today was my 5th day in the lab.

I watched the grad student who is the boss of me dissect one of my snake heads to remove the brain. Damn, that is a messy, messy job.

Well, back to making money the old-school way.   :lulz:

Honestly, I don't know why I ever went straight.

I bet you look real cute in fishnets and pumps.

I DO MY LITTLE TURN ON THE CATWALK

I have really become a cranky bastard over the last few weeks.

EMBRACE IT. IT IS YOUR DESTINY.

Yeah, I hate not having a job.  Even though there's still money.

Anyway, Matt Kilb and Joseph came along and demanded my bad day, on the FB discordian thingie.  So I feel slightly better.

Mine was only to be the fucking idiot I am. I've felt like shit since. This is because I was shitty. I'm sorry and now realize you have every right to be mad and to block me. I got angry and stupidly afraid of yet another pointless fight cropping up. I should have simply contacted you with what I was thinking. Instead I shit posted thoughtlessly. I'm not going to go on about it, but I've tried to analyze why I behaved as I did. The butthurt is mine. I regret it and the thing is there's no undoing it. I'll have to live with it.

Sadly I don't think my boyfriend is going to be too keen on posting in your group anymore.

It's too bad, he was going to post the step-by-step development of his plum beer recipe with photos.

But it did at least reinforce that Discordian groups on Facebook aren't for either of us, albeit for different reasons.

Well I apologize. I thought his parody was some form of attempt to subtly resurrect that meme, which I learned to HATE in 2014. There have been various attempts at shitstarting by the Discofuks. One recent example was a possible sock that slipped the filter. Argument: "I don't have any problem with saying N" because he was just a super awesome artistic genius and was into hip-hop. He quickly came to my attention and kept trying to edge around the rules of discourse to be a dick. I ultimately banned him and deleted his shitty trollthread. Part of me saw the same posting pattern, but I was unsure and really DID want a recipe as , uh, proof..yeah. Howl clued me in. Please give him my sincere regards and sorry. That really was funny and emulated well enough to make me VERY UNSURE without other info.

On another note Nigel I understand if you're not into the group, especially if I offended you & your boyfriend, but I partly came to ask if you're willing to admin and so am asking anyway. We had one step down and his replacement qualifier was to find a female, of which we have none. If you're understandably not interested we'll ask the group for volunteers and select that way. I nominated you and so was sent to ask. We need the Science Nigel. Need it!

Gotta get to work, check back later!

I will happily accept your invite to admin, because it will totally freak out a number of people.

However, I should give you the heads-up that I will completely disappear for periods of time up to a month long due to issues like being in the rainforest, or Finals. If that is incompatible with your admin needs, probably another person would be a better choice.

Far as I'm concerned our current admin needs are plurality, smarts, and occasional induction of extra stress hormones into primate brains post-utero.

Take however long off whenever. Just knowing that YOU'LL BE BACK should strike appropriate terror. A little warning could be good for the rest of us, but there's no code of conduct in the "oligarchy". Also I'm the last of the original 3 for now. The idea was to keep it to 5 persons and see where it went. I'm only even on speaking terms with one other. Don't really know the rest. Thanks for accepting!

2015 will be SO much better now I think.

DS 2015 is now my preferential dumping ground for posts that don't really seem to belong anywhere else. :)

Oh, wow.  :lol: This should make for some interesting stories.

Yeah, apparently my recent experience and events downtown reminded some people I exist.  The money is good (at least I'm staying afloat), and there's nothing too reprehensible going on.  Nothing that keeps me from sleeping, at any rate.  But the benefits suck, at least the ones I'm interested in.

I have a second interview at one of the mines in a couple of weeks, which is looking good (about 10% more than I made at the last job).  I'll take that over this, but this is okay for now.

Crossing my fingers on the mine job! That, too, will probably be an interesting job.

Not as much fun, but frankly I'm getting a little old for this Joe Paluka shit.

I hear you on that. I've ben feeling my age recently, and it's giving me the sweats.

So then, is the actual answer to my question "yes, go to your gym and tell them you want to lift weights"?

Yes.  Tell them "powerlifting, but no intent to compete in the foreseeable future".

Is there any reading, prep, or other information that I might find helpful?

Not really, at least not that I've seen.  The real trick is finding a trainer that's worth a damn.  Many trainers are basically muscle heads.  What you want to do is find out what training they've had (A proper trainer will have a bag of anatomy courses under their belt), and then go slow.  If the trainer is crap, you'll know right away (and if it's questionable, talk to Waffle or myself).

Sweet

Whoever will be there is most likely going to be a health student.

That is right out. Absolutely not. I hate personal trainers with a burning passion and will accept the tutelage of one that stays the fuck away from me when not in immediate demand. I won't have some pushy fucktard hovering over me.

It's best made plain that you want instruction on form (If you do need such instruction, and if you don't know if you do or not, you do...On account of form is the difference between getting stronger and a permanent rotator injury), and not some dumbass hollering "ONE MORE REP".  You can have your iPod scream that at you if you need it, way cheaper.

The gym is better than rock climbing, I think.  Personal opinion, obviously.

Yes, I know I will need instruction on form, because like any physically rigorous sport, injury is a possibility.

Find a gym with a good PT.

That is right out. Absolutely not. I hate personal trainers with a burning passion and will accept the tutelage of one that stays the fuck away from me when not in immediate demand. I won't have some pushy fucktard hovering over me.

I have my choice of two gyms: the one at the University or 24-Hour Fitness. Obviously, the one at the University is the one I'll be using because fuck 24-Hour Fitness.

Now that that's settled, do I just go to the gym and tell them that I want to lift? Or should I just fuck it and go for rock climbing?

I was feeling a bit morose as of late, so I forced myself out into the world, and joined Team Vodka in a rousing round of Trivia Night at the Gay Bar.  We won!


I feel much better today.  Socializing for the win!

That often does the trick for me as well. Although I have to be careful, as sometimes it does the exact opposite.
