Racoon fell and broke its leg outside my apartment.  It was glopping around and biting anything it could, so much so that originally I got a shovel to kill it before I realized it fell from the roof.  So I shoveled it aside last night.  This morning its still alive and seems nonresponsive.  Large bloatflys keep flying to one of its legs, which makes mee want to call animal control.

he night intermitently whining


It must have had brain injury or something.   It spent the night twitching and died while I slept.  It should be gone before I get back, however.

*sigh*
I have this weird obsession with the idea that the morning and waking up should be nice times of the day, not a time to worry about getting hit or shouted at.
They should be. I thought your folks were pushing too hard before, but that wakeup borders on something even worse. I'm sorry to hear :(

That's not bordering on anything. That's straight up abuse.

Yeah. Not a lawyer (and from what Truean has said on the subject I'm thankful for that), and I'm only going off of my very limited knowledge of U.S. law, but I'm willing to bet that's illegal there as well.

Seriously. Is there any way you could get out of there at all? Based on them decrying your grandma and uncle, would they be any better? You might be able to look into them becoming your guardians instead.

Whatever you end up doing, I just hope you can get out of that situation. That's outright abuse, even if all the shit they've done prior to this somehow wouldn't be.

Maybe Caroline's Grandma and Uncle are 'Evil'.
Maybe they ALWAYS get up late for church and the dad is sick of it.

I mean, he sounds like someone who seems to really enjoy shouting, which isn't the greatest stress reliever but hey.

I like blind sympathy, hell even outrage is great. Go ahead.
But I am not so much a fan of people giving advice when they are seriously deprived on the context.
People's lives could get fucked up. I mean, specifically very impressionable people. But why take the risk?

Don't fuck up lives.
Keep your sympathy banal and unassuming.



I personally would take any excuse not to go running. I say it's boring, but when I really think about it I'm just lying to myself. I don't run because it's tiring and painful.
But mostly boring.

Well, obviously I don't know enough to say for certain. It's just an idea she may or may not have already considered. I mean, that's definitely true, but her uncle or grandma could be a decent, supportive person who'd be willing to take her in. Caroline is intelligent, she's probably considered this if there isn't some factor that makes it impractical/impossible.But, maybe it never came to mind, and it would actually be perfectly viable. Unlikely, but worth mentioning nonetheless.

This is the internet, home of cats and bad advice. A few pages before someone was telling someone else that his nauseous feeling was a sure sing of liver disease (?¡)  and that they ought to run to the pharmacy because "they have pills to fix that up" (?¡¡¡¡). I guess dude #2 got lucky he did not get told to do a handstand as well.
In general I'd take anything said here with a wagonload of salt, both from the ones complaining and from the ones giving advice.

So, my university Psych people are looking for people to fill out some Psych surveys for them, and since they offer minor rewards and some credit every now and then and I tend to enjoy doing those, I decided to sign up for this.

All fine and dandy until it required me to think of ways I have hurt/treated unjustly or have been or have known someone to have done so to someone. Shit got dark, fast.
Let's see... I brought a list...

I probably would have shoveled it into a box or something and fed it until it recovered. I know they're not exactly "pet" material, but I'm too nice for my own good. Poor raccoon :<

Yes, but by the sounds of it, that wouldn't have helped much.
Although I have difficulty sleeping whilst things are intermittently whimpering.
Soft of me, but hey.

All fine and dandy until it required me to think of ways I have hurt/treated unjustly or have been or have known someone to have done so to someone. Shit got dark, fast.

It may be a sign of some issue here that I genuinely believe that every bad thign which has ever happened to me has been brought upon myself.
I mean, some people have overreacted, or simply not liked me, but both of those can be attributed to my personality.
I have a dynamite personality.
That being, capped tubes in sealed boxes covered in warnings, and too much of it can bring down a mountain.

Had to return a computer across campus today, it was raining. Naturally, it cleared up the instant I got back. I like rain, so that was pleasant, but now I have to spend the next five hours sitting about in wet clothes. Glub glub.

In the days when Sussman was a novice, Minsky once came to him as he sat hacking at the PDP-6.
“What are you doing?”, asked Minsky. “I am training a randomly wired neural net to play Tic-Tac-Toe” Sussman replied. “Why is the net wired randomly?”, asked Minsky. “I do not want it to have any preconceptions of how to play”, Sussman said.
Minsky then shut his eyes. “Why do you close your eyes?”, Sussman asked his teacher.
“So that the room will be empty.”
At that moment, Sussman was enlightened.
