This is a downer.  Calls for a certain something to lift the spirits

I beleive after work I will get my hair a quarterly weedwhacking, pop my collar, and drive Federal hill swearing at people in Italian.  I need to be able to feel the fall air on my scalp.

Rip the roof off the wagon, then.

Need it for hardpoints to mount the hair gel cannon.
Anyone ever think about how Richter inhabits the same reality as you and just scream and scream and scream, but in a good way?   :lulz:

Well, okay.  Haul the windshield out and replace it with window screen.

I've got a perforated plate I'll be using for that.  Herbert will man the gun, and make sure the neighborhood is greased back as much as physics will allow.  Shame he lost the mohawk.  Nurse East is going to chainsmoke and cackle from the back seat.

I like your example of folks who want a crying rag, then nothing else to do with you, Roger.  Those folks are just faces to me, work, home, or street, and should only get a by - the - book, "It's someone else's problem to fix" answer.  Not to say I only help out or act charitable to folks who can reciprocate, I just refuse to waste resources on folks who wouldn't even if they could.  They're just pits for emotion, resource, or time, so far as I can tell.

Yep.  I think I'm going to erase half of my phone settings, change my hangouts, and start all over again.  Find a new crowd, new people to talk to.

Some of those few friends of mine are broke as fuck.  I have zero problem occasionally throwing some tobacco or booze or chow their way, because they are even happy to see me when I don't do those things.  I honestly like them, and I only worry that they may feel embarrassed when I do those things.  They shouldn't.  I ENJOY doing nice things for my friends, it gives me a level of gratification that ALMOST offsets the letdown I get from others who act as you describe.

Bear in mind that the people I was talking about here were Kim and Von Melee.   :lulz:

Dok,
Sucker.

Naw, Kim just changed, and you didn't know at the time the extent of Marcus's nastiness.
If someone does the “Fine, you’re right, I’m clearly a terrible person, I’m Satan, I’m the worst person alive, I should just die” thing in response to criticism of their harmful behavior, they are trying to manipulate people and flip the situation around so that they look like a victim.

As a neuroscientist I have to disagree with the perception that anyone is doing mathematical modeling of cognitive intelligence, yet; intelligence as an economist defines it, yes, but economists are worlds away from actual cognition.


Although it is outside the purview of this organization to offer personal advice, we can say -- without assuming any liability -- that previous experience indicates (and recent market studies corroborate) that given the present condition of the marketplace, continuing with your present course of action is likely to result in substantial in
