I am very glad to be alive and back on PD again. Gonna take a bit looking around and reading to get refreshed, but also have a fuckload to say after like 2 years in New Orleans.My entire worldview has undergone several revolutions since I last posted. Hail Eris guys!

I decided to watch a horror movie a friend recommended to me and it is the first time I've ever been genuinely terrified of a horror film. No worse possible outcome. I recommend it if you can get into slow-burns. Like, "Tarkovsky on Quaaludes" slow, but Jesus fuck. There's four things you could count as jump scares, though I don't know if any but one of them counts, and I don't think any of them are particularly scary or memorable aside from "oh wow" factor. It's the slow quiet shit that erodes your sanity.

It's called Skinamarink and there's currently no legal way to see it. I wish I had waited to see it.
I think that was on at a local community cinema a couple weeks ago, as part of some sort of film festival.  I might have gone to see it, if I'd known what it was.

Good to see you back, TWJ.

Good to be here, both at PD and alive. There is SO MUCH to tell, but from about mid November I was in a struggle for my life in extremely adverse conditions. My words at the ER intake were misconstrued out of context as an excuse to pu me on a hold for violent, suicidal, and psychotic patients, and in Louisiana being chaptered in essentially dropping you to the bottom of care priority. I was in for cardiac distress and respiratory failure. They have a tight scam running on vulnerable patients in New Orleans. I was aware of the abuses, but had no choice. It's a long painful story, but my self-diagnosis and their adherence to my right to deny medication kept me alive. I was suffering from RSV and an unknown endogenous cardiotoxic concentration stimulant pouring into my body from the shoulder I got my mRNA "vaccine" in in late 2021. I also discovered in the process of diagnosis that I am allergic to food.

All food produces some amount of histamine reaction in me, carbohydrates moreso by an order of magnitude. I cannot drink the 12 or so grams of sugar in 8oz of milk or I will be sick all day without cannabinoid or diphenhydramine interference. Moreover the cardiotoxin dumps now when I consume sugars as well. I will open a thread on the matter soon.

Otherwise I am decently employed now and after several lifestyle changes an feeling truly excellent, and performing physically better than someone that nearly died of atrial dysrythmia only a week ago has any right to be.

I am feeling well, but it is in a sense at gunpoint. Nothing sadder than an Italian that can never eat pasta or a cannoli again, but I pay it gladly.

Not dead.

Still commiting unspeakable deeds.


There's apparently a new dead space thing thats based in a prision. A black iron prison. Royalties feel due.

Welcome back.

Anyway, we're all fucked forever.
I am that worst of all type of criminal...I cannot bring myself to do what you tell me, because you told me.

There's over 100 of us in this meat-suit. You'd think it runs like a ship, but it's more like a hundred and ten angry ghosts having an old-school QuakeWorld tournament, three people desperately trying to make sure the gamers don't go hungry or soil themselves, and the Facilities manager weeping in the corner as the garbage piles high.

Maybe not forever.  Apparently, the USA moved to Defcon 3 last October and nobody felt that it was important enough to mention on the news.

If you wait long enough, everything comes back into style.

That's quitter talk. Are you a quitter? We're fucked FOREVER if I have anything to say about it, and I have a lot of things to say, so you better prep your holes, BUDDY.

Sidebar, I got curious and looked into it. Apparently DEFCON readiness levels aren't supposed to be reported on? Who knew?

No, really. I'm not even being sarcastic, I sincerely had the idea that DEFCON readiness was a wartime public communications tool. "This number determines the amount of Good in your immediate future, if it gets too low you can expect to assume the position forthwith." It's news to me that it is generally not known what the level at any given time is unless there's a leak or a personal decision to announce it.

One more post to note that I have drawn the ire of the racist transfems on Twitter.

Racist is in fact my favorite dessert, as they will soon learn.

It's not secret, but it is a military tool that nobody in the general public really understands.  And they learned from the terrorist color-coding thing that telling people shit only causes problems and mockery.

I think he was talking about Dershowitz, not you? Just how I'm reading the post.

But anyway, expect a follow from me. Congratulations, and I'm sorry.
