You might think you're hardcore.  But you're not "arguing so hard with Uber via Twitter that they give up on their vaunted complete lack of responsibility "privacy" policy and let you put in a complaint" hardcore.

But seriously, fuck Uber.  I can't put in a complaint even though I have the reference number, the time of the incident and the name of your driver, but the guy who didn't see anything has to report it because he put the order in?  Fuck off.  Your driver came to my accommodation.  High.  With his buddy.  Who physically threatened and verbally abused my student.  You're damn lucky I just don't ban your company from delivering here ever again, which I'm still going to recommend to my manager once I get some feedback from you.

Isn't this why you have insanely violent police?

That will also be an option, should Uber decide they don't want to pursue this.

That and just getting the entire company to blacklist Uber for forever, and then mentioning to the other local student accommodations, of which there are quite a few, that UberEATS are employing a pothead who hangs around with a violent twat all day long and let them make their own decisions.

And also I've dropped 47 lbs since july.

I don’t know if anyone other than LMNO might care about this, but jazz legend Jon Hendricks died. He was 96, but still too soon.

today I learned that my home router's web interface title is a reference to a novel about (among other things) a Nazi V2 rocket with secret technology embedded in it. I'm sure it's just a software dev being funny.

I did.  :lulz:

Berries, coconut, and fruit are pretty much a no-go.

Sister's husband has taken to throwing screaming fits if she tries to use the internet or watch tv.  She's also informed me that she doesn't have things that are hers anymore including a laptop I got her because he breaks them.  Yet he manages to not break his crap.

She hasn't left yet because reasons.  I know it's hard, I'm not in her shoes, etc, but geh.

It will be hard to not murder him at Thanksgiving.

Assuming this is the guy who is developing or has developed Schizophrenia.

If Schizophrenia is the general consensus, it sounds like he's heavy on the Positive symptoms and low on the Negative symptoms. This is indicative of excess dopamine reception in various areas of the brain. Does this guy happen to be a smoker or overall user of stimulants?

I currently have a friend who is displaying prodromal symptoms of Schizophrenia, and his parents both had severe Schizophrenia. He doesn't know that his symptoms are associated yet, because he hasn't seen his psychiatrist yet (And has done no research on the subject), but thankfully his symptoms are more in the negative direction. He often craves stimulants, much like anyone else with Schizophrenia. But stimulants can have a negative effect on those with positive symptoms (Delusions, active, disordered cognition, etc.) by increasing the intensity. Anti-psychotic medications are usually anti-dopaminergic, and reduce these positive symptoms effectively. While someone with negative symptoms can often see improvement in cognition and affect with minor stimulants like nicotine.

Moral of the story: If this guy takes any stimulant medication (Or smokes or drinks alcohol) whatsoever, and is susceptible to reason in some cases, I'd see if your sister can convince him to avoid the medication. He may crave them, but they have detrimental effects on those with positive symptoms. Neural networks associated with "knowing something is wrong with me" are inactive during schizophrenic episodes. If your sister can trigger that area of the brain for even a short period of time, it might be just long enough to convince him to get help, if he hasn't already. And avoiding stimulants may be what's needed to get to that point.

Note: Don't take medical advice from random people online. This is a friendly suggestion, and should probably be proposed to a physician or psychiatrist before implementation. I've done quite a bit of research into the brain and this disease, but I'm not a doctor, nor do I even hold a degree of any kind.
Listen carefully. I don't have much time, and I only have 462 characters left. I'm a scientist from Area 52 (Area 51 was used to draw attention from Area 52, where the aliens were ACTUALLY stored) who was working on neural interfacing with networked devices. In an experiment gone wrong, I accidentally uploaded my mind to the internet. In the 2 seconds I had before my mind scrambled itself with the world's network traffic, I was able to store this snippet in this random internet signature. If you're reading this, let the world know tha
