Dissertation done, final conclusion and abstract aside.  Both of which can and will be done tonight.  That just leaves the bibliography and proof-read tomorrow before sending it off.

Or Kill Me / Re: You Know What Pisses Me Off?

I feel ya.  Outside of my wife and my offspring, there isn't anyone I feel like defending these days, so there's no much that pisses me off.

(Sorry for propaganda-ing up your thread, Roger)

It's cool.

These pamphlets are free for anyone to distribute in a non-commercial manner AS IS, that is, you cannot modify them in any way, especially in such a way that Roger's attribution is removed. Creative Commons: No Derivatives, Non-Commercial, Attribution. That is the standard on anything I throw together from others' work, seems to be the most open arrangement everyone can agree on. Generally if it's in the propaganda depository it's safe to beg forgiveness, if people don't want their stuff being spread around they generally don't list it as propaganda.

If you were considering adding these to a larger body of work, I would definitely ask Roger first.

I can fix the typo if people care, but at this point I'm kinda feeling fuckit.

The Dreams as Handles Analogy was really quite brilliant. I think many many people need to hear that, in particular.

I think you could extend the analogy into something phallic for the perverted and poetically challenged: The Handles are many dicks jutting out of your head. Assholes and fates will yank your dicks in painful ways. Find productive people and activities that stroke your dreams and hopes.

"Mmm, yeah, you like it when I go up and down on your dreams? Yeah, let's make them all wet and shiny, that'll be nice. I like my hopes and dreams nice and big."

Also, I usually have issues remembering that "e" in "breathe" makes it brEEEth instead of breth. And now I'm sure I'll never forget it. All is well.

Or Kill Me / You Know What Pisses Me Off?
« Last post by Fernando Poo on May 01, 2016, 01:08:19 pm »
Nothing. Not a single thing really get's me red in the face anymore. And that pisses me off.

I'm becoming more and more moderate, so liberals don't piss me off anymore. My psycho, life-controlling, manipulative, cat-killing, piece of shit friend is (Thankfully) out of my life now, so there's not any real drama to fuck up my world. My life is becoming more stable as the weeks pass, and my finances are looking up. My job isn't laborious or dangerous anymore, so injuries are far and few between. My girlfriend and I argue about stupid little shit because there's nothing important to argue about anymore.

There are wars going on, and the economy is in the shitter. People joked about Trump becoming president over a decade ago, and now he's THE PRIMARY CANDIDATE for the Hick party, and I don't even care anymore. I have been numbed to the issues of the World, and I've hardly even seen it yet.

I've signed a lease for an apartment that I won't even be living in until August, and I did this awhile ago. So everything I do is based around making sure that goes smoothly, so I can't do anything sporadic or unexpected until then. Being me, that should make my life miserable, but it doesn't. All kinds of things are set in stone, which contradicts everything my personality and ideals stand for. But I'm not upset about it at all.

For fuck's sake, give me something to attack, or gnaw at. I'm becoming a fucking Nihilist over here, and there's nothing I feel like doing about it.

GIVE ME SOMETHING TO SINK MY TEETH INTO  :argh!:

Or Kill Me.

Apologies for the dumb question. I'm just discovering this treasure trove. Can I print any of these out and disperse them? And would that apply to everything in this part of the forum? Also, there's a small typo on the 4th page near the bottom - "... trying to explain to it people ...."

No worries. You can generally print these out and disperse them unless otherwise specified in the thread you found the works in, or specified here

Generally, there's no harm in checking future threads to see if others have asked permission to disperse. To be safe, I would usually ask on an individual basis. Most of the authors tend to be in the mindset of "Share anything and everything you want," where as some may specify that they would like their name or Author-Name mentioned as the only stipulation.


Also, I hate typos like that. It always takes awhile to find them because they're usually so subtle, that the brain doesn't see anything wrong or fills in the correct wording for you as you read it.


EDIT:

In regards to this particular pamphlet, QG's stipulations are documented as follows:

Anything that had a copyright on it before I got my grubby paws on it retains those things. If I forget to credit you, please yell and I will correct it.

Anything I create, write, draw, or mash together is yours to use however you like on the strict conditions that you do not credit me in any way.

QG made the pamphlet, but it is made up of writings from Roger, who's stipulations are as follows:

Updated:  My work is used by permission, with attribution.  No exceptions.

(This applies to TGRR as well)

Based on that information, I'd say you should shoot Roger a PM, unless I missed something.

Breathe. You can't tear down the world if you stop breathing, so breathe.

You haven't won and you may never win and you aim so high you know you'll never get there and you have to stop beating yourself while you're down or you'll never get up you have to breathe.

This world will kill you, it will tear you in half and grind you to paste. Your hopes and dreams are handles sticking out of your forehead and the fates or some other assholes will use those handles to steer you like a wagon and if you give up caring about things it won't get any better and you can survive this and maybe help a little and it will hurt but you have to breathe.

There's glass in your lungs and poison in your veins and everything you love will die in the end. The sun will explode and galaxies will collide and the universe will die a slow, boring death and there's nothing to be done about the laws of physics but that is trillions of years from now and you can only do something about now and it matters, you matter, you have to breathe.

You don't have to make peace with it and you don't have to accept it and you don't have to stop being the kid who would cry at a mall opening you don't have to be perfect you can't be perfect you just have to keep trying and breathe.

I love you. Breathe.

BY THE TIME I GOT TO THE END, I WAS BREATHING LIKE MICHAEL MOORE
