Read a book.  Interact with other real humans in your domicile.  Take up stamp collecting.

That's different.  For reasons that do not concern you or I.   :lulz:

The worst thing about severe alcohol abuse is that it might not kill you.

It might turn you into RWHN.

You can believe that, if you so choose.  I think he's been out of work for a while.  Just a guess, mind you.

Well, I dunno. He was shopping for a ring for his girlfriend today.

A move I was considering suggesting to him to maybe wait on for a little bit since his divorce is still recent history until he called me assface (open hostility=/=hatred).

He is a human being after all and I don't want him to get too entangled too quickly if he might not be thinking through the neurochemical rush that is new love.

Well, I guess I ended up making that warning anyway. But, if he's doing that, I imagine he has disposable income to buy a rock the people suffered to get to him.

Why you think the world is better than it really is:

http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/j.1540-4560.1975.tb00997.x/abstract

He probably won't read it.

It's only an abstract.  Someone post up the full article and I'll read it.

Are you requesting someone do something illegal for you?

To be fair, I may be able to legally acquire it. If I had my previous position, I might be able to acquire it right now, but as it stands, I would have to physically go to the library at work and scan it. Though I doubt he would read it anyway, especially if I specifically went out of my way to scan it.

I'm assuming that he would have similar if not better access than me, since he works in a hospital. May even have that nifty online access. Seems like Journal of Social Issues would be on the list of subscriptions where he works. But, hell, we all know my recent track record with making assumptions about RWHN's personal life.

On the right side of the screen it says, Article Tools: Get PDF.

Have you never gotten an article before?

He doesn't know how to, and the places he works don't have subscriptions (mostly because they are imaginary).

Yeah I had the same thought around the time he was myseriously unable to access any of the journal articles I linked to.

Unemployed as fuck.

Ugh, I read that expecting it to be funny and unfortunately, it was unfunny, misguided, and factually incorrect. :(
That was my thought after skimming it.
Worst Cracked article i've read so far.
