I'm going to be making a goodbye to these forums, I think. It's not that I've been upset by anyone but I think that, in all, it'll do me some good to stop socialising online so much and focus more on real life.

Good luck with everything, man. I've seen you around here since I signed up here fuck forever ago, so it makes me happy to see u doing self improvement 🙏✌️

Get accused of being against everything and never presenting any solutions. Start by explaining the basic concepts of money is debt and velocity of money, in order to be able to make the benefits of a demmurage currency, or a universal transaction fee apparant... Just for starters. But I never even got there because 40 minutes in, it has become a statistical fact that every sentence has been interrupted by basic appeals to human nature (staple flavor). Then they get tired of interrupting me by repeating "themselves" and leave.

So grab a ticket to preemptively devaluate every argument that comes out of my mouth ad hominem style; because I'm about to call a vast majority of my "natal village" friendcircle illiterate henchmapes.

Join the club Drags.  I get that kind of feel here a lot too.  But-- I remind myself--- at least it is possible to even broach such a subject and have people understand WTF you even mean when you broach it.


It is hard sometimes to appreciate, but I have come to acquire the taste:  Hostile conversation is better than dull conversation.


Stick with it.  "I disagree, therefor wrong!" is not, factually correct.  Just keep that in mind, along with "I suggest the hard answer instead of the easy one, because I find the suffering caused by the avoidance of the underlying problem too great to ignore, and that does not make me a heinous monster, no matter how lampooned into that position some may assert."   Keeping both, you can have the resolve to be a genuinely good willed "asshole" too. :P

As for my own WTF...  This is DAY FUCKING FIVE of whatever respiratory fuck-you virus i have contracted from work.  Everything even mildly salty tastes like it has been soaked in the most bitter chemical cocktail immaginable, and likewise, I have had to go to the ER once already to get a steroid dose pack to even be able to fucking breathe, my immune response as been so off the fucking top in terms of how clamped-down-and-clogged-up and full of neutrocytes my lungs and sinuses have been.   Like yeah, Seriously impaired respiratory function territory.  With how bad it was, I suspected influenza A, but no-- swab culture returned negative at ER. 

Now more than halfway through the steroid dose pack, the stepped down dose has me teetering between "Can barely breathe a little" and "wolf at fucking door" respiratory hyper-reaction I have been experiencing, and I am worried.

I have locked myself in the bathroom with an electric IR space heater cranked up to "Start a fucking fire!" with the door shut to simulate a dry sauna, to artificially raise my body temperature because I have not been running a fever, and I am thinking that changing the status quo on viral load statistics by shifting protein production rates for the virus to propagate (which is exactly what a fever does) is exactly what I need to do to make my body not go fucking apeshit when the pills wear off, and clamp my damn airways off while I suck on the next damn dose of steroid pills like some damn meth junky looking for a fix.


Did you guys know I fucking hate it when those asshats I work with bring their damned kids to work, and keep them there all fucking day long?  This shit is exactly why. 

"Oh, it isn't like my adorable angel isn't constantly swimming in a cesspool of contagious pathogens when they go to school, and then bringing them here to be with our charming elder population that are all immuno-compromised, and then kicking a horrible disease football back and forth all the time! It's JUST SO HARD to get a sitter these days!"

FUCK YOU.  Breed your respiratory superbugs some other god-damned place.

heh, that has one hell of a ring to it


I feel frustrated I let myself get suck into a trigger minefield, instead of deflecting with some cheap rethorical trick... It was to be expected that a guy who works at the municipality couldn't possibly fathom anything but the tranquilising drug of gradualism. Which is silly because he clearly suffered a defeat by forfeit, but I wouldn't have had to alter my perception of this person I've known my whole life. So I'd rather narrate it in terms of: we wasted a perfectly good opportunity to play video games.



Requiring steroids to breathe sounds utterly terrifying.

It is.  Especially when you "take before bed" as directed, to awake with "AIIIR! I NEED AIR!" because the dose has tapered off, and your congestion has not kept step, and your trachea slams shut.

fucking terrifying.

If you work with the elderly, keep your goddamn kids at home. If you have the sniffles, dont bring them to a compromised resevoir population. Just fucking dont't  It gets passed around like a damn offering plate at a Pentecostal Holy Roller prayer, and becomes a damn weapon of mass constriction that puts people in hospitals.  (Seriously, we've had 3 people had to spend time in ICU on ventilators because of the nasty shit thats been going around.)


BUT... Nope. Still too hard to get a sitter or pay daycare.

At least friend interactions have been fun. Anyway I need to go get these scraps of sleep before it gets any later.

I'm just so uncertain what to do with my future. I'm thinking furthering my education is the only realistic option to get myself into more interesting employment. There's a community college, but just navigating their website fills me with dread. I'm just an almost-thirty schlub that's been doing nothing with himself but working for 6 years now. Where do I pick up? Being hopeful and ambitious seems beyond me, especially since I'm still so uncertain as to everything in my life. I'm so scared of making a mistake, I feel that a error at this juncture will ruin me without doubt.

It's just a quandary that makes me think I should never have been born, as being born only means I'll live, and only to live, and waffle about indecisively for years on end, never really satisfied with anything.

Gods, I think I hate this time of year.
Maybe it's just my mood and stress levels. Hopefully. It seems a bit messed up to hate one's own birth month purely because one was born in it.

Seriously considering setting my birthday to private on social media, to forestall all the people lining up to rub salt in the wound...

My town is about to vote on a ban on plastic shopping bags. People are being their spoiled, entitled selves about it. I seem to have forgotten the four rights afforded to every American citizen:

Life
Liberty
Pursuit of happiness
Plastic bags in the Wal-Mart checkout line

Heaven forbid somebody have to get their groceries in a recycled, biodegradable paper bag, or *gasp* a reusable shopping bag. The masses have never been so downtrodden.

Whatever even happened to paper bags? I seem to recall them being more popular back in the day, with the eternal burning question of "paper or plastic?"

Might just have something to do with my folks doing a considerable amount of shopping at Trader Joe's while I was growing up, but...

Both my local grocery stores have paper and plastic bags, and both have middling to awful customer service.
