Also, if you guys did want a discord that's basically what I do for work now. I can help.
Your job is setting up discord servers?  There are people who pay for that?  Weird.


I also manage them and the community.

I was joining some discords and thought, 'hell I'll see if PD has one,' so I came here to fine out. Damn dude, I remembered my login somehow.

You guys were really cool to me when I was a teenager, and I had some stupid shit to say. It's been 19 years. It's been longer since I joined this forum then my age when I joined this forum. Anyway, seriously want to thank all you from back in the day. I still remember a lot of lessons I learned here, and they have not treated me well.

Down to chat if anyone wants to catch up. I'll read some of the stuff around, but I see some of the top-level posts are the same as I remember.   

Also, if you guys did want a discord that's basically what I do for work now. I can help. If you don't totes cool.

:regret:

It's good to see you again.

Nice to be seen.

Yeah, the actual ocean beach is like 60 miles away. I'm at the convergence of two large rivers, which has its benefits, one of them being I can actually swim in the water here, an act which would be suicidal at the coast.

I grew up on that coast and swam in the water all the time. The Ocean more then the river. Lots of people surfed there. Its really cold but not suicidal. I have pics.

I'm a Nihilist. If you don't know what that means, don't worry. It's meaningless.

Ok, what the fuck is up with seemingly well adjusted guys who just HAVE to show you their dick? In text, email, the god damned jumbotron. It's like their whole lives are moments between the beat, waiting, yearning, aching, to let it drop.

I suppose it is basic primate behavior.

Very, very, very basic.

As a dude of dickpic age I also don't get this. Actually now that I think of it, I have never taken a pic of my dick. No shame, I like my dick. I just think you should meet him in person.

And I have to laugh at this point, Penumbral, at the very idea of you lecturing me on politics and how fucking weird middle America can get.  I am sorry if you have recently converted to republicanism and are thus butthurt or something, but WEIRDER BILLS THAN THIS GET PASSED EVERY FUCKING DAY.

Not at all meant as a lecture. Just opinions. I personally don't think this bill will result in the deaths of any people, I am not trying to defend it or the people who wrote it.

Something like this has a lot more walls to run into, and I guess that I have hope that one of those walls might have some rationality to it. As you said maybe some people are just bad people. I, however, think that chain of ethically deficient people isn't strong enough in this case.

Most doctors are more rational then this bill. There is nothing stating that they can't help. I would be surprised to see a single case of someone not getting treatment for a miscarriage due to this bill, even in Alabama.

Also this bill is unlikely to pass.

Insane bills get proposed all the time. People get elected on insane platforms and they write bills that go nowhere. Not saying I have hope for the country or the legislative system but most things this horrendous that get through the state house get stopped or overturned.

Wow, Nigel you're sweet.

I'm 26, and hair just felt like peacing out. Ain't no thing.

Also I remember you being 19 or so, why are you suddenly in your 30's?

Actually that one might be the drugs fault.

Literate Chaotic / Chinese Restaurant
January 24, 2014, 04:10:29 AM
I have been in this place for years. Hidden behind opaque red glass. The light diffuses and dissipates before it hits me. I wear glasses and sip on this tea. My cup is never ending. With each sip I drain most the glass. Each time I pick up my glass it is full again, and hot. I don't know if anyone knows I am here. I don't give it much thought. All the workers look depressed or at least downtrodden. They come and go, but no customers ever do. I see them with their white rice sitting in the kitchen eating, slowly. I have never seen anyone else in this Chinese restaurant. Just the workers and me. I don't even think they know I am here. In my seat I sway a little, rock this way and back. It's comforting, I do not know why. I am happy here. It seems sometimes like I shouldn't be. Dismal would be a more understanding emotional response to my surroundings, but my surroundings do not even interact with me. I am separate, somehow, like a different force all together. My cup is like a giant's thimble, or a miniatures bath basin. I can't reach the bottom of the glass but it feels dainty in my hands. This is all I have and I am happy with that. I think I could even do without my eye-glasses. I can't hardly see without them, but I don't need to look around anymore. I know this place. I have been here for years. I wonder if anyone even noticed me when I came in. I wonder if I even care. Every day is short for me. The caffeine in the tea keeps me awake, but I still dream. I know I am dreaming though. If I travel to distant lands or get a parking ticket I know I am dreaming, and in reality am just sitting in this Chinese restaurant. It's relaxing. I am relaxed. I like it here. In my dreams, however, I never wear these eye-glasses.

There was far to much innocence in what she said for me to think there was anything wrong about it. Like you said its about safety and sometimes fear. If anything it just made me think prison gangs were more childlike then they know.

So I grew up. And rarely, I would see little mixed kids, and I would always be happy when I did. INCREDIBLY rarely, in the Pacific NW, I would see a mixed-race adult, and I always thought they were so so amazing.

My niece is mixed in rural Pacific NW. She doesn't know any black people. Literally 0. She loves black actors because, "They are like me." I remember hearing her say that and really it stuck with me. I still don't know what to think of it though.
