Title: Idle complaints about today
Post by: Cerelum on December 26, 2007, 10:01:49 AM
My nose keeps running like a mofo, but it's stuffed at the same time, so I gotta keep blowing gobs of snot outta my nose, but then it just happens again...

Everything feels like it's going in slow-mo, and I'm stuck at work for 11 more hours before I can go home and sleep.

I'm taking wal-phed that is supposed to be non-drowsy and feel it lies..cause I'm friggin tired...

I have a headache, my next employee doesn't come in until 5pm and it's 10am...

I'm debating leaving right when he gets here, cause I feel like total ass.

And I keep logging into the request tool cause I keep thinking my spam filter is stopping me from seeing the reply to my special app, but them am sad...  If it's been 7 days and you haven't heard anything would it be considered being a pain in the ass to send a message about it?

A very attractive woman from down at the jewelry store came in with her mother to see about renting a tux for her little brother for a black tie dinner, and I'm so sick I didn't even hit on her...

I'm a mess.

Nasal irrigation, buddy. Or so I've heard.  Barring that, some Tussin/Mucinex/whatever might help thin things out...or your Walmaswill may have that in it already.

I'm guessing that your special app is pretty safely non-lost if it's in the request tool.  I've had a couple things that sat there for a good long while, but everything I've put in the Tool has gotten processed eventually (unlike email, which seems to sit low in the work queue and doesn't necessarily get responded to).

Theraflu.

Seriously, I've never used anything that works like that stuff.  Of course, I suspect the effectiveness of various medications varies from person to person, but I definitely recommend giving that stuff a try.

Just put some Tussin on it... hehehehe

But seriously... Nasonex does wonders. You need a prescrip for it though.

Hehe... Ah America.

Stay fit!  Except around the Holidays whenever you are inclined to gain weight.  But then part of me thinks, are we so corporate and out of touch with emotions and Holidays that we can't allow business a few days to let their employees off?

Yes, especially hospitals; the sick should really take a few days off.

Heeh.  But you're forgetting the all-American solution, though: ask for "volunteers" to work through the holidays, and pay them overtime. :D

Stroker, is that a college/university gym, or a commercial one?

Update on complaint...

My snot is now pink..  And seems to never want to stop coming out of my nose, I blow my nose and literally don't know where all the snot is coming from... Wal-phed (cheap sudafed) doesn't work worth a damn.

My head pounds whenever I cough or blow my nose like someone is drilling into it.  I can't wait till my employee gets in, I'm totally bailing work earlier today.

Ugh,

I am sure you were considerate, wore gloves and held your breathing to a sanitized, bacterially shielded miniumum.

Not the type to leave your infectious microbes on the doorknobs, bathroom lightswitch, cash register buttons and several other surfaces as a bonus for your employee?  Good for you, boss.

Nope... I have washed my hands after every nose blow though, I'm not going so far as to wear gloves and a face shield, you can't sell stuff to people when they think you've got something that's going to kill them.

But that does remind me, I should probably take the trash with my multi-colored snot collection to the dumpster when I leave.

One of my kittens is sick and the poor thing is just miserable to watch. :( She's barely grooming herself, she's got the sniffles something awful, and she's just kind of laying around the bedroom in a funk.

I feel bad 'cause she can't go play with her brothers, but I have to quarantine her for now so the others don't get all snotty, too.

With the roads nasty and icy this morning, I called into work to tell them I would be late. All is well.

I get to work a little over an hour later and walk into a shitstorm. My boss, who is a total fox but is also a bitch of the most radical sort, comes at me with "Where the fuck have you been? Why do I pay you if you aren't going to be here, working?"

Well, you rotten fucking cunt, considering that I went into the ditch three times during the 15 mile drive, that I had my three children in the car, and that I DID FUCKING SHOW UP after calling to let the yard manager know I would be late, I think I did well. In fact, I think I did terrific under the circumstances, especially when you consider the fact that the boss, all employees, and every stick of expensive shit in this store and the yard could burn to ash in agony and tears and I wouldn't give half a fuck. Careful how you talk to me, or I'll tell you to shove your 9$ an hour in your pussy, report you for every safety violation and fire hazard, trust me there are ALOT, and then toss a brick through your fancy new stained glass window before I blow out of this hellhole. Then I'll kick the shit out of your barfly husband and grudge-fuck your highschool sister who is already showing interest in me since I gave the ex the big boot out into the street.

So? Get the fuck out of my face and let me do the job I came here to do.

Fuck work.

Morning was alright, despite the fact that I've turned into an insomniac and can't really sleep much anymore...And then some dumbass decides to break into one of our client's cars in the parking lot...Totally threw off the rest of my day. Yeah, that part isn't that bad...

All of my cats are FeLV positive, and one happens to have been diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia about a month ago. We did a blood transfusion then, and she's been progressively getting back to her previous state. Today, despite my dwindling finances and ever raising bill...Decided to do another transfusion because her PCV was getting low again and she hasn't been eating. Did the blood transfusion, which totals over $500 (before my discount for being a tech at the vet hospital)...And her PCV went up a whole 3%. She's still completely weak, not wanting to eat very much, and is at her lowest weight ever.

On top of all of that, it was the day after Christmas and we were -really- short handed. We had to repair a diaphragmatic hernia as well as do 2 neuters, a spay, and 2 dentals that required growth removal and/or extractions. So...we were in surgery until 3, while seeing rooms...And then we got a dog in that ate rat poison that we had to give charcoal to.

So, overall...I have a dying cat, I'm tired, broke, and my hands are stained black. Today was shitty.

alright... I'm totally a cat lover, dog lover and pretty much anything lover pet wise (besides birds, birds love to bite me!) and I guess I don't understand why you would pay all that money on a cat that's going to die?  I mean, I hate to sound heartless, but unless there is a chance that transfusion is going to cure it, or give it like 10+ more years of healthy living, I'm not paying 500 bones for it.

That's easy:  you aren't ready to give them up just yet.  It isn't always about the patient, some of the time it is about people who love the patient.

That's 100% right...I'm not ready to give her up, and I don't think she's ready to give up, either. I suppose some people can't understand that I would pay $500 for the hopes of getting -just- another month with someone that has unconditional love for me. To me, it's just money when it comes to my animals...because they're more of a family than my own family is.

I swear I'm not a crazy old cat lady...

And I also want to thank everyone that's offered their support, it really helps.

I guess I can respect that.  I personally have known humans with cancer who fought it to the very end and know the turmoil and agony they went through, both physically and mentally and guess I wouldn't be able to put a pet through that, no matter how much I wanted to pet them for those few more days, or play with them.  I hate to see things suffer at all.

Don't get me wrong when I say this, but this sounds sad to me, on many levels. The least of which is you are watching someone you love that much as they go through such a sickness.

But that is the least sad part.

Yeah, it is sad. Because I happen to be a college student that lives with her boyfriend in a small house in a really shitty part of town. And we both consider our pets to be like a little family for many reasons...One of the reasons being that both of our families live quite a ways away and no one bothers to visit because they're all wrapped up in their own lives. Or maybe because I've been living on my own since I was 16 and the most emotional support came from my cat who always knew the best time to curl up in my lap and make me pet her.

But anyways, I'm done with this thread. I'm not going to defend myself to people who don't understand. Thanks to the people that do, I really do appreciate the support.

Just for the record, I'm not saying you were wrong to spend the money to try and get a few more moments out of your loving pet.  And I don't want you to feel like you have to defend your position, after all it's totally your money, you didn't ask me for a loan so what you do with it is totally up to you.

As I said earlier, I simply couldn't do it, not because of the money so much as the fact that I've seen humans with cancer who were in pain the last few months.  I would give anything to have easied their pain.  So I guess I'm more apt to be sad to lose the pet, and put it down, then to keep it around for that extra month or two, knowing it's hurting.

I'm sorry to hear about the sick cat, but you know animals live, breathe, finds humor and love similarly to our very social monkey race (it's been scientifically proven). It isn't wrong to treat a disease, it isn't wrong to help allow the sick to experience life as long as you and the sick kitty can muster the funds and strength. I know what it's like to have an animal you love like family get horribly sick. Truly, I'll pray for you guys.

My complaint: Probably that I don't live close enough to some people to introduce lonely bricks to faces.

Yesterday sucked big time.

Even though I came early enough to catch my flight, I was stuck in the line during check in and when finally I could do it, the plane was 40 minutes away.  New rule of Delta (that I did not know before), if you have less than 45 minutes to your flight, you are "too late" to check in for bags.  So they said I missed the flight, even though there still was 40 minutes and the plane was not even boarding, and I was even there an hour before the flight.

So hilarity insued and they booked me for the next flight, which was 14 hours away.  Aaaand I had a lot of fun in JFK airport during that 14 hours period.  First I discovered my PSP is out of batteries, then my shoe got stuck somewhere and its bottom fell.  Nobody seemed to know where I could find a wireless connection in the airport to pass the time.  Soo... Long story short, I did not sleep.  I could only play like 15 minutes with my PSP.  And pretty much, nothing more interesting.
Well, at least I could write a few pages in my story.  I guess that is a good thing.

Sometimes I really really hate not having a flame thrower of my own.

Complaints of the day:

1. Fat people shouldn't bitch at me cause they are so fat they need a size 70 regular coat and we don't carry it.  You are the fat one, be mad at your last hamburger you ate!

2. If you're coming in to get measured for a suit.  Take a fucking shower you stinky bastard!

3. The bride and groom pick the styles, if you don't like the color of the vest for the wedding you were INVITED to, tough shit.

4. Addon to 2.  If you wear your pants under your pot belly, then make sure you wear your tux pants at the same level, or they are gonna be floods.

5. 120 dollars is not expencive for a designer name tuxedo, stop bitching.  If you want cheaper I have cheaper, but there are reasons it's cheaper, cause they aren't as nice.

6. Tell your retarded out of town groomsmen to goto their local tailor and get measured professionally, cause half the time their mom/sister/grandma does it, it's fucked up when they fly into town.  Surprise surprise!

Ah, something to comment on.
I recently was part of a wedding party.
The bride and groom had decided on rentals through a nationwide suit and tux store.
Everyone went to get measured at various locations of this store.
Out of the eight tuxes/rentals, (note, the orders/measurements get sent to the warehouses/facilities in Texas, then the goods get sent to a store near the wedding for pickup), 4 needed alteration in trouser length, some by as much as 4 inches, 3 needed alteration in jacket sleeve length, and one set of shoes was the wrong style. Although the Fed-X'd overnight the correct shoes, they sent them to the wrong store.
Luckily the grooms tux fit just fine.

Airports.

They suck.
Agreed.

Some are nice. Seattle airport is really nice from memory, I spent a few hours there on layover and just drank tea and read.

Atlanta by far has the worst airport I've ever seen.

It was awhile ago, but all this waiting talk reminds me of how horrible MEPS was. I was there for like 4 days and 3 of them was spent sitting in the waiting room for 8 hours every day because they didn't have enough doctors to process everyone those days-no tv, couldn't sleep, no reading.

Be glad if you are not working all day (7.30 am 7.30 pm most days, sometimes it may go much later such as 3 am) so that you can finish the experiment before the conference date

be glad if you do not have a bunch of students to teach/grade their papers as well

be glad that you do not have your projects and exams at a time like this

I woke up in the middle of the night, sinuses screaming, sore, and swollen.
The rest of my sleep does not go well.
My brats were in my room about 6am.
In chasing them back to their own bedrooms, I slammed the door of my own and knocked the expensive antique mirror off the wall, shattering it.
I then tell my wife it was an ugly piece of shit anyway so I'm not sorry it's gone.
As it belonged to her grandmother, this does not go over well.
Argument... GO.
I call her a dumb bitch and urge her to leave for work a few hours early so I don't have to listen to her shit.
She does.
Now I sit here, waiting for work in 45 minutes, dreading staring those bastards in their idiot faces because I know it will bring a frenzy of violence boiling up in my throat.
This will only be contained by heroic efforts of self control.
Ten hours of that today. Fucking bitches.

I want to use Linux. I want to like Linux. I want for Linux to support common wireless cards. I understand why it doesn't.

Nevertheless, after spending a couple hours putzing with it this evening, I'm still running Windows.

I wound up swapping my video card out as a result of my choice to switch to linux, some products just aren't really supported - the ongoing proprietary vs open source struggles.  I was just running some onboard ATI piece of crap, and ATI is notoriously unsupported.  The new card is still ATI, but it's something of a cadillac, and fully supported by linux.

That said... I don't regret replacing the video card, the switch was worth it and has saved me enough time and money in other places to make up for it.  The best reason to keep running windows is games or other specifically unsupported software, but even then mac is often a better choice, particularly for design people.  Otherwise it's worth the switch, IMHO.

,,,uh, sorry for derailing the bitching, I just don't have much to complain about today. :D
Title: Re: Idle complaints about today
Post by: Cerelum on December 10, 2008, 10:55:31 AM
I walk into work today to get phone calls and e-mails that amount to:

1. My assistant manager is calling off for the next three days because her child has a staph infection (cellulitis) on his back.  She already has gone to the doctor and has antibiotics, but apparently must stay home with said child because he's sick.  I normally wouldn't be too twisted if I didn't know she lives with her mom and her mom doesn't work, thus could care for sick child.  When I brought up this idea to my assistant she told me I was insensitive and didn't understand that when a child is sick "There is no replacement for his mother." Give me a fucking break, I gotta find an excuse to fire her.

2. Two school districts I sell tuxedo shirts or as they call them, band shirts too, have dumped nearly $1000.00 in orders on me, which is great, as I make 5% of every sale I do, however they want about 116 shirts of various sizes by the end of the week and it's Wed.  plus the little band cretins haven't been measured yet.  When I brought up the idea to the band organizer that he might want to give me a little more time, he looks at me like I'm simple.  Am I asking too much?

3. This girl I'm screwing/dating whatever you wanna label it calls me, starts asking me stupid questions about the computer and how her brother has this program for his kids that she wants to bring home for her kids but it keeps saying it needs the cd.  She is under the incorrect guess that once it's installed it can be played anywhere and I have to explain copy-protection 101 for her which takes entirely too long on the phone and she doesn't understand anything when I'm done so says, "I'll talk to you about it later when you come over." so I now am doomed to repeat myself in computers-for-retards tongue for her later this evening when I just wanted to roll over to get a piece.

Bad day.

The membership's vote of 98% in favour of the strike is a reflection of the city's incompetence more than anything else.  I was reading in the paper that they requested an increase of 10.5% over the next three years, which is 1.5% above the mean. This is a common tactic. The city responded by offering 7%. I ask you, what retard would propose an increase of 2% below the average in a final counteroffer on the NIGHT of a strike deadline?

If your answer was 'mayor', you were right.

The french fries contain "natural beef flavor." The apple pies contain l-cysteine, of which Wikipedia says: "At the present time, the cheapest source of material from which food-grade L-cysteine may be purified in high yield is by hydrolysis of human hair. Other sources include feathers and pig bristles." The only thing I really see on their menu that contains no animal ingredients whatsoever is hamburger buns.

So I'm still wondering what a vegan could find to eat at McD's.

I've had to repeat "I would be glad to come to the school and measure the kids, but the band director didn't want to do it that way, so that's why you have to come here" about fourty times today on the phone.  The band director is just a dick and doesn't care about how he's putting out these parents and kids.

So far the only positive was watching the security chase down this skinny black dude who was shoplifting (I'm guessing) and tackling him into Lane Bryants window, shattering it like a movie action scene.  Then listening to him scream, "You're only doing this cause I'm black!"  that line always makes me chuckle.

Its only light flurries for weather today, but the weekend is going to be another flash freeze, possibly causing another ice storm.

To table 44:  If you're going to lie and say there's a hair in your food, don't use the hair from the silvery-blond woman, especially when the ENTIRE kitchen staff is brunette (which they can see because it's not enclosed).  All of the waitresses are also brunette (during that shift).  I mean, we are required to give you food/discount, but seriously--at least make it believable.  Oh, and you guys smell like cat piss.  SERIOUSLY.  And when you called the manager over to complain about how you thought we were laughing at you, but he told you we weren't?  We totally were.  Thanks for not leaving for three hours. 

To Chris:  We made your pizza three times today because YOU ARE AN IDIOT.

Just an update on my black shoplifter who destroyed the fat girl store's window (Lane Bryant).  Apparently he has an attorney who is trying to bring up the security guards on charges of excessive force and that they purposefully threw him through that window to be spiteful because...............he was black.

Sad thing is, from the way the security guy was explaining things to me, it sounds like my mall is going to fire the security guards rather then rally behind them.  It's a shame everyone is afraid of lawsuits.

Can have our weather. I believe it was around -30 not to long ago with windchill, at least what they said. We got seven inches that day, then we got another 8ish inches of snow not to long after (like a few days at most). Now tomorrow we are supposed to be hit by another ice/snow/whatevershit storm. So want some?

My gripe for the day is this unholy hangover after being grinded up and down the dancefloor of some club last night by four females. What a great night.. except that I forgot the license and debit card at the club. Most hysterical was when I got to the toll booth, I grabbed all of the pennies in one huge handful and just gave it to the guy; hope it was enough, but he let me pass. I get to the second toll booth, by this time I have no more change and I didn't bring cash with me, so I flat out tell the dude I don't have the cash on me and had me fill out some form(that form I wrote wasn't even legible, dude had to get my plates for me.  :D) to get a traffic citation if I do not send in a $1.25 money order -- pricks, but comical.

It was just the angle he came at him, he came in a diagonal to him while another one was chasing behind the shoplifter.  It was either through the glass or let his ass go.  I would rather have through the glass.

Speaking of salsa, allergic reactions can be fucking scary.

Up until now I thought I was only allergic to penicillin. I bought this thing of salsa, got home and dipping fritos in it. Oh man it was some really good salsa, perfect blend of sweetness and spiciness.

After that I was just watching TV and my mom noticed when I was getting a drink that the skin around my eyes was red, and I talked about about how my chest felt like it was sunburnt and it was getting harder to breath. According to her I then went to sit down and I fainted for a few seconds before she was able to find some benadryl and I popped it down, stuff went away then.

Looked over the ingredients and it's all stuff I've had before, besides the cryptically named "spices".

Going to be trying it again later tonight with benadryl by my side to see if it was indeed the salsa, and I'm going to be pissed too..that was some awesome salsa.

I'd be careful with that, if I were you.

A secondary immune response after being sensitized like that could be a lot worse than the first reaction.

Edited to add:  Here's an example from guinea pigs:

"Active sensitization in guinea pigs is induced by a single injection of a foreign protein such as egg albumin.  After an incubation period of about 2 weeks, the animal is usually challenged with an intravenous injection of the same protein.  Within 1 minute, the animal becomes restless, its respiration becomes labored, and its blood pressure drops, a state called anaphylactic shock.  As the smooth muscles of the gastrointestinal tract and bladder contract, the guinea pig defecates and urinates.  Finally, bronchiole constriction results in death by asphyxiation within 2 to 4 minutes of the injection"

Furthermore, benadryl is only an antihistamine.  The leukotrienes and prostaglandins that are generated as a long-term response are up to 1000 times more potent than histamine, and will continue to act.  Not to mention all the other stuff that your mast cells and basophils will be releasing.

The bottom line is:  if you think you're allergic to something, don't go playing around with it, because nobody wants do die from eating chips and salsa.

Making sure it wasn't something else I ate so I know to avoid this salsa in the future, I imagine it's safer then not trying it again and risking eating something else I ate yesterday and not having benadryl by me or someone to drive me to the hospital.

Still, you should go in and get tested for other allergens rather than doing that yourself. It's ridiculous to be trying something so dangerous on yourself. At least have someone present to dial 911. And hopefully, if someone is present, they would never let you do something so reckless.

There are free clinics (I don't know if there is one where you live), see if you can find any by searching on line or something. Also, there's medicaid, but I'm not sure what the requirements are to qualify.

Is it a different brand of Fritos? Generic Fritos? What about the salsa? Where did they come from (not the store, the manufacturing place, go look it up then Google them), do you have any relatives over that have pets that you might be allergic to? Is your family cooking something you haven't had cooked in your house before? Insect bites, stings? Walk through your entire day, pick apart the hour you had the allergic reaction. There was obviously something there.

Yeah, I'm playing doctor, but at least I'm not asking you to take your clothes off like all those predatorial doctor stories you hear.

Quote from: Thomas Jefferson
I do not find in our particular superstition of Christianity one redeeming feature... Millions of innocent men, women and children, since the introduction of Christianity, have been burned, tortured, fined and imprisoned. What has been the effect of this coercion? To make half the world fools and half hypocrites; to support roguery and error all over the world.

The Donut store's topic this morning was seperation of Church and State. When I wandered, uninvited, into their little ruckus and dropped that on the guy who was loudly declaring that our founding father's were one and all good Christian men and that it should remain so now and forever. When I asserted that the founding fathers were by and large deists, and had taken pains to keep their tired, outdated religion out of their new, unique government, I was asked to leave by the proprietor who had stared in horror as I demolished his side of the argument.

So I called them dusty old fucks and assured them that they'd wasted their lives and their donuts tasted like shit with icing.

Today is a huge day for shopping and returns. Don't go to the store.

My own complaint: I woke up early to turn Partyface outside for her morning piss and stepped on one of the new firetrucks my boys got. This thing was obviously meant for malicious activities, rather than benignly putting out fires, since it's studded and crenallated with pokey little fucking things that SHREDDED the bottom of my foot. I hop around, yowling and managing to wake up my kids who refuse to go back to sleep. En-route to the bandaids in the bathroom, I step on my new KICKASS tye-dye sweats that I'd discarded in the floor before bed, and get a big bloody smear on the crotch. :(

My foot hurts, it looks like I'm spotting, and my kids are all grumpy and shitty from being up since 6am.

Thank god Christmas is over so I can throw that holiday cheer shit out the window and be good and surly for a few days.

I've been battling a computer virus all weekend.  This thing was nasty.  I figure it came in on an image file, possibly from Wikipedia.  I run a tight system too.  NAT, firewall, Symantec AV, and plenty of other security precautions.  I'm a professional IT worker with an emphasis on security, so this is particularly annoying.

Virus scanner didn't see it.  Ad-Aware saw something, but I suspect it was a new variant of an older trojan (Virtumonde) which it could not remove.  I deleted all dll files that were modified in the last week (none of them critical) and took a hatchet to my registry, but the aberrant entries kept returning and new dll's were being spawned.  Eventually it got to the point where I couldn't even log in (the system would immediately log me out), even in safe mode.  I tried an in-place re-installation of Windows XP, but after that it failed to boot entirely (blue screen when Windows starts to load).  Not sure if the virus somehow did that, or I've simply hacked the system to bits in the fight, but I called for a retreat.  Currently booted off a linux CD and am copying my files to a USB drive.  Will do a format and a clean install afterward.

Sometimes I really hate computers.

I am sick with something, I suspect a virus... I can't seem to keep myself hydrated, I drink water and everything else in sight all the time, but all that happens is I have to piss like two seconds after I finish, like it literally is going straight through me, at night I wake up multiple times, in the area of 3-4 times a night, with dry lips, a hard tongue and feeling like I've been left outside redstorm in a sandstorm for ten hours, I then drink a ton of water, feel better, then go back to sleep, wake up an hour or two later, piss and repeat...

I DO NOT like going to the doctors, but I think I might have to.

I went through this pre-Christmas. To make it worse, something started accessing my disk every five seconds, no matter which process I killed. It was like Chinese water torture. Whirr. Whirr. Whirr. For a while, I thought I was going to have to give up and buy a new computer.

Somehow a combination of avast! and upgrading to XP service pack 3 seemed to do it in, although I still get a window about a missing .dll on reboot.

I bought new toothpaste today, and after I finished using it before going to bed (because I value oral hygiene) I found that the back of my hands were stained red where it ran down. At first I thought it was an allergic reaction, which obviously is a big deal if I just smothered my mouth with it, but luckily it went away.

This dude I knew had tourette syndrome and he would do it all the time at work when he was dealing with strangers, but I noticed when we were just chillin at his house he wouldn't do it hardly at all.  He said it was worse when he was nervous or uncomfortable.

This is how it is (mostly) for me.  I do them at least a few times every hour, and I only do them one, two, or three times in a row--it always stops after three.  At home I do it randomly, depending on my anxiety level.  No, I don't do it in the sack (smack).

Sorry to hear that, fella.

If you wind up having to do injections, keep hellaciously close track of your sugar and keep it regulated.  You can live pretty close to normal if you do, but high sugar will just wreak havoc on your health over time.

Yesterday I was one of the closing cooks at the restaurant where I work.  We close at ten.  Like we do every night except Friday and Saturday. 

At 9:59 last night, two people walked in for carry-outs, the phone rang for a delivery and one woman literally stopped the waitress from locking the door (which she is required to do) so she could try and get in, and a couple slipped in at 10:00 (our two entrances are pretty far apart so it took the waitress a minute to get from one side to the other) and we had to tell them to leave ("But we just want pasta!!").  Seriously.  We weren't even that busy up until then.  And the woman had the audacity to complain about everything closing sooo early on New Year's.  Yeah, because, like, we don't want to celebrate it too, you dumb bitch. 

Not to mention it was inventory night and our manager hadn't even gotten to START on inventory until after close.  We were there until around 12:30 or so, and the only reason we got out so early is because our manager was nice and sent us home so he could finish it alone (which he isn't legally supposed to do, but whatever).

I was sitting in Critical Care last night watching this old woman who was barely conscious, oxygen mask on.

Who knows how much longer she had.  Some one had turned on her TV and Ashley Tisdale little plastic surgeried face was on there bantering about who knows what.  It really put futility further into contrast for me I'll tell you that.

I have a tremendous family of in-laws, all of whom are in the Hernandez/Aguilar/Fuentes category. Now, I have alot of respect and admiration for many of them. They're generous and kind folks who are as smart as or smarter than most 'white' folks I know. The problem is, when they screw up, it's not something small and everyday that you wouldn't notice. It's huge and tremendous and, alot of the time, fucking on purpose so they can do the 'Que? Que?' routine and plead 'I'm just an immigrant. :( '

One example: Over the summer all of the wife's family comes to town for a Quincenera(sp?)? My house, being the only one out of town with a space large enough to hold all their vehicles, gets chosen as the after party. That's fine, I wish I'd had a little warning to set shit up, but all good. I have loud music, a fire pit, a tank for beer and ice. Here's the place and welcome. I'd made a massive load of jalapenoes and potatoes earlier in the day, and it had been cooking while we were gone.

Well, by the time I get home, my potatoes were out of the oven. Replaced by some sort of mexican casserole, I think. Where is my massive foil of potatoes? Gone. The fucking trash. "What?!" I exclaim. Oh yeah, they respond. They'd thought it was trash, see? So they threw it out. "Wrapped in new foil, in the hot oven, smelling good of garlic, butter, bacon and peppers? Trash like that?" And they all stare at me. Defiantly holding to the 'We must not be understanding each other. Because no habla, remember? We thought it was trash.'

"Fucking stupid bitches." I declare before leaving to get drunk with the other part of the family that was already outside throwing horseshoes and. And it was all better. Because this is when those people truly shine. FUCKING PAAAAAAAAAAAAAARTYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY! AYE AYE AYE AYEEEEEEE!!

So the answer here, Brytta, to your porch-sitting pistol shooters, is to stop being such a crab. Save your tear-gas money, and instead buy some beers, a festive hat, and go make new friends.

So we put in a pool and have to keep the gates locked.  And I switched jobs and now work days, Monday to Friday.  When the gas guy comes to read the meter, he can't get in to the back yard.  So the gas company says "Hey, why don't you put in one of these new meters that transmits a signal and the gas guy can read it from outside the gate?"  Aside from the whole conspiracy about the Hockey Mom Cartel getting hold of my private gas consumption information, I think this is a good idea.

The other gas guy comes by (in the snow) to replace the meter.  As he is doing it, he measures the distance from the gas meter to the dryer vent.  Hmmm.  Seems that it is 33 inches, but code requires it to be 36 inches.  He flags it and I have to get it fixed or they turn off my gas and my wife, dogs and I freeze to death.  And while all this is going on, he decides to measure just about everything else in my home and the pool heater is 4 inches too close to the fence.  I now have to go after the pool installer people to come and do something about this which will involve moving all my pool equipment to the back of my yard and cost about $1000 for a gas fitter guy to come and run new gas line.  AND I even gave the guy a cup of coffee...bastard.

So I have to move the dryer vent and punch a new hole in my house.  So I call a handyman to see if there is a cheap, easy way to do something about this without punching another hole in my house (because the previous owners seem to believe that the liberal application of caulk can solve just about any problem, including making the hole for your dryer vent much too large for the vent itself).  He comes by (for $150) and cuts a hole in the ceiling of my basement to let me know that he can't even move the dryer vent because the waste plumbing from the kitchen goes down the hole between the joists.  Now I have to spend a weekend tearing down a wall in my basement, cut the pipes, redirect the pipes, punch a hole in my house, move a dryer vent, re-drywall a wall and then paint the laundry room all because the fecking builder didn't bother to measure the distance from the gas meter to the dryer vent.

Almost as bad as the time the TV guy came to install a dish and had to drill a hole through the house and put his drill bit right through the main electric line coming into the house...while I was on my computer, eight pages into a report for work...and hadn't bothered to save it...at all.

The other gas guy comes by (in the snow) to replace the meter.  As he is doing it, he measures the distance from the gas meter to the dryer vent.  Hmmm.  Seems that it is 33 inches, but code requires it to be 36 inches.  He flags it and I have to get it fixed or they turn off my gas and my wife, dogs and I freeze to death.  And while all this is going on, he decides to measure just about everything else in my home and the pool heater is 4 inches too close to the fence.  I now have to go after the pool installer people to come and do something about this which will involve moving all my pool equipment to the back of my yard and cost about $1000 for a gas fitter guy to come and run new gas line.  AND I even gave the guy a cup of coffee...bastard.

So I have to move the dryer vent and punch a new hole in my house.  So I call a handyman to see if there is a cheap, easy way to do something about this without punching another hole in my house (because the previous owners seem to believe that the liberal application of caulk can solve just about any problem, including making the hole for your dryer vent much too large for the vent itself).  He comes by (for $150) and cuts a hole in the ceiling of my basement to let me know that he can't even move the dryer vent because the waste plumbing from the kitchen goes down the hole between the joists.  Now I have to spend a weekend tearing down a wall in my basement, cut the pipes, redirect the pipes, punch a hole in my house, move a dryer vent, re-drywall a wall and then paint the laundry room all because the fecking builder didn't bother to measure the distance from the gas meter to the dryer vent.

Almost as bad as the time the TV guy came to install a dish and had to drill a hole through the house and put his drill bit right through the main electric line coming into the house...while I was on my computer, eight pages into a report for work...and hadn't bothered to save it...at all.

Perhaps if you had offered more than a cup of coffee, this all could have been avoided.

To all of my engaged coworkers (and nearly all of them are younger than me, and I'm 20):

Please stop asking me when I'm getting married.  Please stop talking about rings, weddings and families with me.  It is awkward and weird to think of a 17 year old getting married.  Please get out of high school first.  Please stop looking at me like I'm the weird one for not being engaged at 20.  Yes I know you've only been with your boyfriend for eight months, and I've been with mine for three and a half years, but I think that makes you the one you should be examining.

You're so in love, I can't help but hope you manage to beat the substantial odds against folks getting married so young.

Going to give my own opinion as a Divorced Man...

Fuck marriage, you can do all the exact same things you do married if you just shack up.  The sex will probably be better, the arguements will probably be less and you'll have a shitload more fun.

The only thing that sorta sucks is you can't get joint insurance if your just shacking up.

My lame ass roommate has been unemployed for two and a half months.  He's been borrowing money from family and now he can't do that anymore because they got tired of him doing it, so this month I covered him on rent.  He's already five days late and I am much inclined to think he is going to just stiff me instead of pay me back, all because he found out I actually have savings (that I worked for myself so I could go back to school, I'm not a trust fund kid).  Every day he sits around browsing MySpace and doesn't go looking for a job.

I'm tempted to find some random person out of the paper and have them take my spot on the lease, cut my losses and move out.

I've always found it surprising how readily people will turn on someone who apparently needs a hand.

Have you tried talking to him? Maybe he's depressed? Maybe he's discouraged by today's bitch of a job market and needs some help to get started looking? Maybe his family needs to know he's in trouble?

It's got to be better than just kicking him onto the street to become homeless.

I've dealt with some people like this in the past, a couple of which had been close friends. Some people don't want to help themselves, or others, pretty much--and don't grow up after they move out.

Not to say Ammut shouldn't try I guess.

Yep.

I don't mean to sound merciless, but I've dealt with situations like this and.. frankly.. lost a lot of faith in the human race. If he wants to help himself, and he's struggling, and trying, then it's okay if he fails, as long as he tries again. If he's just mooching off of his family and friends because it's easier than putting forth the effort of self-improvement, he needs to grow the fuck up and fork out, or get out.

...I paid the water, sewer, garbage bill in December as a gift to all my roommates...
...I covered him on rent this month... I'll wait to see if I see any of it paid back before next month when I'll have to cover him again...
...he has money for smokes and beer, but not to pay me back.  Hmm.

Sorry to sound like an ass, but I've done a lot for this guy already.  I think I've had enough idle complaints for today..

Yeah... don't loan money to friends long-term.  Having someone owe you money is a huge conflict of interest with your friendship and will eventually destroy it.

I very rarely even discuss personal finances with my friends.  Only two of them even know how much money I make, and I don't think either of them know how much I've saved.


As for my idle complaints about the day... Windows is freaking bloatware.  I am this close to going Linux.  Only thing stopping me is that I'd pretty much have to give up PC gaming too.

Exactly, man. first, it was an issue of my husband downloading a virus while trying to get a key generator for our old roommates copy of neverwinter nights, then, once I got the windows disk from my uncle and reinstalled windows, our soundcard went out. Well, it sucked but was alright, until I went to reinstall morrowind. Won't work without a working soundcard. So we went and bought one a week or so after christmas. The PCI slots for our graphics card and sound card were so close together that both were overheating from proximity to each other. Fine, we remove the graphics card. Then morrowind won't work without it. Joy. Then our fan goes out. Then we get a message about the floppy diskette drive not being found, and now, it won't start up except in safe mode.


Damned if I turn it off one more single time before we get our new computers. But hey, on the bright side, now that startup is fucked, the fan is working again. go figure -that- shit, right?

Well, at least I can still use the computer, even if it's more broken than me.

And it really -is- sad. Computer deaths suck. We've gone through 3 in three years. Fucked up thing is, it's always some fuck up that's got nothing to even do with me.

Wait, why would you want to get a laptop if it's a technical thing? Laptops always have more issues and get screwed up a lot more than PCs. Well, mine is dying too, after 4 years of service. This laptop I'm on has a non-functional LCD for whatever reason. Fixing it would cost more than buying a new laptop. It pry it open to see what's wrong, but chances are I'd damage something inside, but it works fine when connected to an external monitor.

Anyway, my idle complaint about today was about being in the game industry. Man, the game industry is full of idiots.. from the CEO to the press. There's always someone out there who's willing to argue at length about things that don't work, e.g. "Warcraft made money. I want you to make a game exactly like Warcraft, but different." It's dumb. You can't apply the same principles everywhere. Game design is an art. If everyone drew the Mona Lisa, nobody would even look at the imitations.

Similar are the people who think that just because one principle hasn't worked in one case, it won't work now. You can't simply toss in an interface from another game, or a feature for the sake of having a feature. It's got to be checked to see if it works for the game, and whether it's the type of game the fans want to play.

Also, there's the 90% of game reviewers who will play an unknown game for only one hour. I'm sick of all of them saying that the game is too difficult before even doing anything, or complaining about things that only appear in the first level. What's worse is that these same people write overinflated reviews about games like Half-Life 2 and Prince of Persia, with no content other than describing the graphics.

Game design is an industry full of theories, most of them untested. It should be something for everyone, but it's becoming an increasingly l33t industry, catering to only a few select people. I expect it to collapse in on itself within a decade, which is when I'll step out from the ashes and strike :P

Man, I've been waiting at the airport here in Oklahoma City for an hour and a half, and I have 3 hours to go until my flight leaves.


On the bright side:  I one-shot-killed my interview here, before they even looked at my scores.

When the interviewers cracked open their folders and looked at my scores, one of them actually said, "Whoah" out loud, hehe.  I figure that was sort of like the grievous wound to the head you land after you get the knockout.

People who play their music too loud in apartments, without consideration towards other people who might have families, or be sick, or work nights, and so might want to sleep or to have someone in their family sleep.

Title: Re: Idle complaints about today
Post by: WarriorPoet on January 19, 2009, 12:25:57 PM
So yesterday we had a birthday party at my house. Not for me, but a cousin who was turning 18. I live on a road about 2 miles from town. I have neighbors, but living 'in the country' like we do, we rarely talk or bother one another.

Well, for the party there are 30+ adults and alot of children here and we're shooting skeet. After the first few minutes, my neighbor's dog comes bounding over to my land. This dog is a fucking brat of a German Shepherd anyway, always harassing my own dogs and lurking in my driveway. He gets to chasing the shards of the clays that are falling to ground,  and I make everyone stop and send the legion of children we had to chase him off. He won't go and everyone is getting restless. I finally decide "He's too dumb to go away, fuck him." I tell the people to carry on with their frolics, don't shoot at or near the dog, and the day progresses well.

Then, a good seven hours later, the neighbor RUNS out his back door, raising hell and telling us to stop. We do stop, as he's determined to run across the group's line of fire anyway like a fucking idiot. He takes a good 15 minutes to gather up his dog and when he finally gets ahold of the collar, whips out his cell-phone like the bad muthafucka he obviously is. I know what's coming, so I go wait in my driveway. Sure enough, in about 5 minutes a Sheriff arrives.

I know him. We've been involved a few times, socially and in his official capacity, so I shake his hand and tell him before he even tells me what he's there for "We're shooting handguns and shotguns. Nothing to carry to the airstrip which is the closest thing to the west of my house, a good 2 miles away. That damn dog has been out there since we came outside at 1030 or 11 o'clock. This has been going on -all day- but suddenly he's concerned for his dog? No."

The sheriff agrees and, after another firm handshake, tells me to quit shooting at dark. We'd planned to anyway, so rock and roll. Well, he leaves, I return to my beer and watching the shooting, when out comes my neighbor, mad as hell and looking for me. When I approach he declares, very boldly and bravely for a man facing an armed mob of rednecks with weapons galore bristling from their ranks,"Shut it down. I'm sick of listening to it. You hit that dog and you and me are gonna have problems."

My go-to response is the one I go-to and I retort,"Fuck you. Take your old ass back in the house or we'll have other problems. I talked to the cop you called and he told me we're fine to continue 'til dark. But now that we mention it, since we're getting hateful and petty with each other, get rid of those fucking cows you have penned over there. They smell like shit and they're against zoning laws out here(which is true. No cows, pigs, or goats). They'll be gone by the end of this week or I'll have the cops out here in -your- ass. Get the fuck out of here and keep your dog on a leash if you don't want him over here or I'll shoot him personally." Which is a silly threat, since I'd have been far more likely to have shot -him- than his dog. I like dogs. But the comment has it's desired effect.

He of course is sputtering by this point and takes a step closer to me, like he wants to fight. Now, I'm 25 years old, 6'4 inches and about 250lbs when I've got a few beers in my belly. A buncha bad muthafucka, when I'm pushed to it. I don't scare easily and since this is a small-to-middling sized man of maybe 50, I just laughed. He thinks better of his actions and instead turns away and goes his bitch-ass back inside with catcalls and jeers following him. I snap at my crowd to shut their stupid asses, as I've got to live next him. They don't.

This exchange ends his interference for yesterday, and looking outside a few minutes ago, he's loading his cattle up.

I'm not happy with this. I didn't want trouble. He could keep his cows over there for all I care. I just don't like getting the cops called on me. If he'd come and talked civilly to me first, I would have probably made everyone put their shit up and quiet down. I have to live next door to this guy, so I don't want serious trouble or even ill feelings. But he started SHIT.

My idle complaint for yesterday. And today.

Okay, went to the doctor back in October because my tonsils were grey and I thought that might be an issue. They swabbed my throat and cultured it, said they didn't find anything... sent some cultures off to a lab and those came back negative for anything as well. They took a chest x-ray and scared me to death by saying that there was something on my x-ray so they wanted to send me for a CT Scan. Did that. The findings were that I have a pericardial lesion. Okay. So I look that shit up. Apparently it can be caused by untreated pneumonia... great. Don't think I've ever had pneumonia, but I'll ride this out see what the doctors say. I was starting a new job so I couldn't take time off for the follow-up appointments to see the cardiologist, have an echocardiogram, and to see a GI doctor. Great. They had originally wanted me to come in the week after the CT Scan findings, but due to work I couldn't make those so I finally get some appointments this month. Today was my first cardiologist appointment. Aside from the fact that the doctor was a complete fuck-tard, his glasses were three inches thick, and his hearing was so bad that he had to turn his ear toward me and lean in when I told him what was going on, everything he told me only helped to slightly confuse me more. He did say though that the only time he would come into the picture is if there was fluid on my heart or if it was enlarged, and from his findings, I have neither of those. He wants to get me to a pulmonary specialist. Yay.

Moving on... work sucks. I cannot change my schedule for 150 days because I am a new hire. My days off are Monday and Friday and I work 2:30pm-11pm. So, suffice it to say I haven't been getting much sleep. Last night...err... let me correct that, this morning, I went to bed at 5:30am and had to be up at 7:30am for the cardiologist. Stupid schedule... has my sleep patterns so fucked up I can't sleep, and I'm so wound up when I get home from work that I cannot go right to sleep. *sigh*

Okay... /endrant

Edit: Oh yes, and don't even get me started about the weather. Stupid snow, I want to be off of work tomorrow. Stick, damn it.

Here I am, struggling to figure out how to make a wireless mesh network for the last month and I find out today that even if I was able to bring one up, there would be no encryption on the wifi broadcast because of some stupid problem with adhoc networks and wpa.  Damn, I wasted so much time on a solution that wouldn't work for my needs anyway.

I decided to forget about making a mesh and simply make a wireless distribution system which is so much easier.  I literally had it up and running in less than 30 minutes and it covers a huge area.

So I was going out to start my grill an hour ago, cook up a teriyaki steak I've had marinating for a day. It's a propane grill and I twisted the knob and to release the propane so I could light the grill to heat up.

The fucking thing exploded in my face, or well fireballed.

Luckily the cover was on and the flames shot out from under it, I was able to jump back and bring my arms up to block the flames. Unluckily both my forearm's hair are singed to a crisp and my house smells like burnt hair.

You can register your cell phone there, but it is illegal for them to even make that call to a private cell phone and I'd be willing to bet that 'researcher' didn't dial that phone number, suggesting an auto-dialing system, which would be yet another law they've broken according to the laws regarding telemarketer solicitations.

Our regional manager took away our measly fifteen minute breaks.  We were the only store he took them away from.

Last week my bank accidentally deposited our paychecks into my boyfriend's old account, which had an overdraft that I wasn't aware of.  They charged us $30 to take the money out of his account and put it into the right one, which was THEIR mistake.  He's going to go complain today, but that still pisses me off.  If they would have told me his account had an overdraft, I would have paid for it!

It varies from state to state, but I happen to live in Missouri--where they have NO laws at all regarding lunch breaks.  The policy used to be that we got a 15 minute break for every six hours we worked.  Well, since our sales have been so poor lately (big surprise), and we aren't hitting the labor percentage that our regional manager wants, he cut our breaks out (the only store he cut them from).  He really doesn't give a shit about employee morale.  I wouldn't even mind -clocking out- and taking a break, but no.

Mississippi states that for an eight hour work day, you either get:
 (1) 30 min lunch and (2) 15 minute breaks
                          or
 (1) 30 min lunch and (1) 20 minute break

You also get a 15 minute break for ever two hours worked past eight.

Wear a cloak. I think my jumpers are what keeps my skin soft, supple, and undamaged, even with being in ultra-dry Australia and ultra-humid Malaysia. It's a bit hotter, but not as hot as direct exposure to sunlight or a heater.

Where are you putting lotion?  On your face?  Because that's a bad idea.

Some idea (cause I used to break out a lot, not so much anymore).

1) Get Proactive - that stuff is okay - but it comes with a moisturizer that is gentle on your face and won't make you break out if you're worried about dry skin and their customer service is awesome.

2) Don't put lotion on your face, ever unless we're talking about a tiny patch that is so dry it's scaley - lotion has oil that will do nothing but clog your pores

3) Ask your doctor about anything with benzoyl peroxide in it for your face.  It's the active ingredient in Pro-Active and it helped me in High School the most

4) The thing that has helped me more than anything is just washing my face every night with warm water and towel drying it and getting some sun in the Summer, sometimes it's good for your skin to be dry because the oils and stuff can't clog and infect your pores.

5) For your hands and body (lotion) I recommend anything that isn't oil based like the Dead Sea kiosks sell and there is also some good organic stuff that is not oily in the least that I always have on me (I'll have to look up the brand for you later.

Anyway, those are my tips.  Being in Texas where ones skin constantly seems to get icky with the humidity I've had my share of break outs.  :(

Try getting a humidifier going inside to keep the air moisture reasonable.  And Bebop speaks truth re: benzoyl peroxide.  You can probably even get cheap, Equate-brand over-the-counter stuff that is pretty decent.

Yes, I still have to use the stuff occasionally when the weather is shifting.

Benzol-peroxide works well for the face, I know that much.  I need to find some in a bodywash I guess.  It's not that bad, really, but sometimes a break-out can be irritating.  I thought about a humidifier too.  Thanks for the input.

You should moisturize your face after cleansing, or your skin will get very dry from the acne-fighting chemicals in your cleanser!  I wash my face and moisturize every morning after I wake up and every night before I go to bed.  If you want to maintain a healthy, youthful glow, wash and moisturize every day!  The trick is to use lotion you're supposed to put on your face.

The skin of your face is susceptible to UV damage even if you don't spend a lot of time outside, and even if it isn't summertime.  Using sunscreen is very important to counteract this, so I'd recommend using a light face lotion with a sunscreen strength of 10-20 in it for your morning regimen, depending on how fair you are.

Wait, are you a guy?
Title: Re: Idle complaints about today
Post by: LauraMars on February 03, 2009, 01:02:53 AM
Also, a good diet is equally important in preventing breakouts, if not more so.  Greasy, fatty foods are terrible for your skin.

I should really learn how to read threads.
Title: Re: Idle complaints about today

This is the complaints thread, not the skin care advice thread.  Complain or GTFO!



Best moisturizer the skin care industry doesn't want you to know about:  Vaseline.  Petroleum Jelly.   :o

It is dead cheap, and contrary to instinct, it will not make you break out.  It is inorganic, so it doesn't interact with the skin, it just sits on top and reduces evaporation.  It only contains oil, so it can't dry out and leave clogging residue in your pores.  Wash, then rub on a thin layer of Vaseline.  It will probably feel too heavy at first, because it is so thick it is easy to put on too much.  Just wait a few minutes, then rub your skin with a cloth or paper towel to rub off the excess.   

It isn't great under make up, but if you don't wear makeup and want something cheap that doesn't smell like fake flowers, it works very well.

The biggest heart attack I suffered during a previous job was doing exactly that.  Imagine my surprise wen after I've just spent two hours cleaning a nice lady's carpets and couches, bleached-white hand prints and spot marks show up all over the place.  Benzoyl peroxide, apparently, acts as a bleaching agent when exposed to high degrees of heat and moister.

So, my boss has been hiring a lot of new people for our team and the upstairs office was getting crowded (2-3 people per desk).  He told us we should move downstairs and sit in a lab or server room.  Apparently, I was the only one who actually did so.

That's not my complaint, though.  I find I'm much more productive when I'm not bumping elbows with people or being distracted by random conversations.

My complaint is that every time one of my coworkers comes down for something, they ask me the same freaking question: "Don't you get lonely down here?"

The answer is "no, I don't", but it's very hard to say that without sounding like a jerk.

Stupid extroverts.   >:(


EDIT: and since many of them are new and don't know me well, I probably have come off sounding like a jerk.  What's worse is that some of them were moving some servers around today and one guy asked if I wanted to help out.  I declined because I already have several important projects I'm juggling, but I think it may have come off like I'm too good for that type of work since throughout the day when he'd come down here, he kept making comments about "manual labor".  The thing is I've racked and ran cables for about half of the whole damned data center... TWICE, since we've actually moved it two times.

I went to another city to send a form.
"You can't go in. You're wearing a t-shirt."
"What?"
"No t-shirts in the building."
"You mean I have to go all the way home, to change my shirt. Just to send an envelope?"
"Hey, I'm just doing my job. Fine, you can borrow my jacket, but remember, no t-shirts next time."

Idiots. At least the security guard lady was nice enough to let me borrow a jacket. Not nearly as bad as a certain university which won't let you take the final exam if you're wearing sandals.

When I got back, the taxi driver refuses to use a meter and charges me RM15 (about $4, 5 hours wages) to send me home. I used the bargaining skills I learned from Armageddon, negotiated till he was very pissed off, and he charged me RM10. Wow, 33% discount on a product that costs twice as much as it should.

I'm pretty sure melatonin is simply supposed to help you re-adjust your circadian rythym if you've thrown it off from travel or a few really really late nights. I've never really heard it being extremely usefull as a regular sleep aide. But hey, what do really expect, it's natural, none of that shit works.
Title: Re: Idle complaints about today
Post by: Archbaron on February 08, 2009, 12:32:47 AM
The drug of melatonin only increases the amount of melatonin neurotransmitters in your hypothalamus which in turn creates the signs that most of use associate with sleep such as weariness, slowing of the digestive tract, sluggishness of muscle control, etc. However, if the dendrites of your neurons are full of other neurotransmitters such as acetylcholine or dopamine from your usual activities in the day, then that means that serotonin and melatonin are just sitting in the synapses of your neurons and not actually connecting into the dendrites from the terminal buttons. Taking extra melatonin will only increase this concentration and will not lead to the actual firing and transmission of the sleep pattern from one cell to the other to initiate the sleep preparatory phase.

So, when you take massive amounts, all you are doing is overloading your synapses until the melatonin is shoved into the other dendrite and fired which can lead to axon and soma damage and eventually brain damage in the frontal lobes. Overdosing melatonin can also lead to Parkinson's Disease and Alzheimer's down the line because it will clog the transmitters and prevent the spread of acetylcholine in your brain.

Melatonin should only be taken once the sleep preparatory stage is initiated and you have a history of insomnia or restlessness, not as a pill to actually cause drowsiness. While it does have this effect, it can be considered misuse of the drug.

The level of detail you provided there sounds like a whole lot of speculation.

P.S. Neurotransmitters don't just "hang out" in the synapse under normal conditions.  There are various enzymes (acetylcholinesterase, serotonin/dopamine reuptake transporters) that remove excesses from the synapse fairly quickly.

Well sure, but isn't there some speculation involved in swallowing melatonin in the first place?  You swallow it, it is sloshing around in your stomach acid looking forward to a nice tour through the intestines, but somehow it winds up going directly to your brain instead.  How does that work?  Why doesn't it just get digested?

Like Synthesis said, they don't just stay there, they get recycled or degraded. A high amount in the synapse will tend towards fully saturated receptors, and thus a higher response.  That's the way SSRI's (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors) work, they increase the available substrate for the receptors by inhibiting its uptake. However, a higher concentration does tend to have a higher reuptake/degradation level, as the French guy said.

And though I'd have to look it up in the literature, I imagine serotonin and dopamine competitively inhibit melatonin, so the higher concentration present, by the French guy, will allow the largest response.

My dog got a hold of my cellphone and chewed it pretty good on the corners. Luckily, everything still works, but it sounds all funky and dull when it vibrates, which is a bummer. I was already having a bad day when this happened so I had a massive fit at the dog and everyone in the house before I was finally able to get it to turn back on and I started to breath again. So, I taped up one of the corners to cover up a huge dent, and I got a Sharpie and wrote "I went a match with the demon dog and lived to call and text about it." Now it's very personal.

I love turning negatives into positives.

I don't think so, maybe serotonin, but dopamine is made from tyrosine, while serotonin and melatonin from tryptophan. So they're a bit different, and your receptors are usually very specific. You can have plenty of ACh and other stuff sitting there, but none of them will bind to melatonin receptors aside from melatonin. So, it would be more like a tug of war, depending on who does what at a particular synapse. Also, lack of light increases melatonin in the brain by itself. Also, melatonin has been touted as the miracle cure for a lot of things, none of which has a lot of evidence to support it (I believe). I'd go with a nice, short acting benzodiazepine, sure they're addictive and have morning side-effects, but at least you'll get a shitty night of sleep.

I've had this happen before and swore I was just being paranoid as usual. Come to find out years later that it -was- happening far more to the extint I ever thought. After breaking up with a long time, live-in girlfriend I noticed a couple different cars following me at different times of the day, but the strangest behavior I saw was in my two cats that would stray to my glass-pane door at a specific hour. Not only was this lunatic following me around town, she was also visiting my apartment, breaking into my porch to sit with my two cats; the glass door between them for hours on end while I was at work.

<sarcasim> It was a real amazement none of my wonderful neighbors couldn't notice and tell me that some strange woman was sneaky-sneaky onto my porch and sitting there for hours. </sarcasim>


Next time you notice someone following your vehicle, make a few slick moves(may require some dare-devil crap in my experience) and get behind the car in question. Write down the license plate and make a few phone calls when you get home to your local police station. They may not do anything with the initial report, but after a two or three, I guarantee they'll start investigating the matter.

I hope you stay safe, brytta!

Fairly clearly non-paranoid on my part, I think: the car followed me into a sleepy residential loop, kinda hung back as I got close to the starting point, and took off back to the main road when I turned to go 'round again.

Fairly clearly non-paranoid on my part, I think: the car followed me into a sleepy residential loop, kinda hung back as I got close to the starting point, and took off back to the main road when I turned to go 'round again.

That reminds me of the Houston APM last summer when FantasyWriter, Kronibas, and I followed someone we thought was Bogre for miles and miles until they pulled into their own driveway in a sleepy neighborhood.  Poor dude must have been freaked.

I found out today that I am being stalked.  That's about the high point.

8 hour shift on Friday.  On call phone rang for the next 5 hours after I got home.

8 hour shift on Saturday.  On call phone blew up at 3rd hour in.  It was fully charged.  The phone ran out of power one hour before I left my shift.  I checked voice mail through another phone until my shift was over.  It took 15 minutes to get home.  I had 17 voice mails when I got there.

While checking and writing down those 17 voice mails, I received 10 more.

While checking those 10, I got 9 more.

The phone finally quieted down six hours after my shift ended.

Sunday I was awoken by the phone again during pre-dawn.  It didn't shut up for 9 hours.  Then I got a two hour break.  Then it came back on for another four hours.

I came to work today expecting to relax.  Hey, I wasn't on call anymore, right?  Wrong.  The department I was doing on call work for was already one person down.  Another called in sick.  That left one guy dealing with this shitstorm.  I am not trained to do this, I can roughly trouble shoot, but I am not employed by the department in question.  I volunteered because I did not want the one guy in there to shoot himself in the head just to escape.

Now my shift is over.  But I'm not leaving.  I won't leave someone behind to suffer alone.  We may be here for another three hours.

Ah, good point.  I had that happen to me too somewhat recently.  I was feeling pretty good about that one too, to the point where I started looking at apartments and clearing my schedule for the foreseeable future.  My friend in the company actually told me I didn't get the job while I was at work and I was so bummed I had to just leave.  Fortunately it was on a Friday so I had the weekend to recover.

This new job isn't really my dream job like the last one I applied for, but so far it does look like a sweet gig.  But now I have to sit at my desk and pretend to be enthusiastic about my current work.

I hate people who act like they're smart. Those who use huge words like "arbitrary", "apprehensive", and "velocity", without having any idea what they mean. Especially when they lack the intellect even understand a simple technical statement, and brag about being "civilized and educated" by using big words out of context. Even more annoying are the type who wear suits, brag about their loyalty, and talk as loud as possible so that everyone will hear them.

Extra annoyance when they're in a high position, which gives me no chance to hit them and prevents everyone else who wants to hit them from joining in. I could easily attack their intelligence and their qualifications for the position, but that just encourages them to tantrum and spout even more incorrect facts and jargon.

*sigh*

Also, I dislike spoiled kids bullying other kids on the playground, with their parents not doing anything about it. And I dislike some people who only troll chat rooms and websites for attention, attacking others personally when things don't go their way. Those people should be banned, because they scare away the good people, but the administration is too merciful.

To contribute:

I fucking hate my new haircut. Seriously. It's flat and boring and reminds me of early 90s news reporters or something. Good god. I had long, semi-curly awesome hair, but it kept getting tangled and needed a trim. So I go in for a trim...

Apparently "trim" means "hack five inches off my hair and razor the crap out of it and then blowdry it into some sort of feathered half-assed atrocity of style that makes my face look like it's shaped like a pumpkin."

Fuck hairstylists. Fuck hair salons.

I paid $35 for that bullshit and by the time I told her, "hey, that was too much!" it was either get it ALL cut to that length or have one excessively obvious short-ass chunk of hair on the side of my head.

She was a sweet girl and I didn't rage at her in the salon, but JESUS MARY AND JOSEPH, WHEN PEOPLE GIVE YOU INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW THEY WANT THEIR HAIR CUT, IT'S YOUR JOB TO FUCKING LISTEN TO THEM.

I couldn't rage about this enough. Seriously. I don't care if I sound vain as hell. I feel utterly un-cute now and I don't care enough to starve myself to the point of where my cheeks are hollow enough for this PIECE OF SHIT HAIRCUT to not make my face look fat.

No no no no no no no.

There's too much sugar in our diet. They've generally found that pre-agrarian societies had much better teeth. Keep to a low acid, low sugar diet, and eat fibers that take some of the shit off your teeth, and they'll last you much longer. It's agriculture that does it.
What a sinful, decadent, wanton life. Stop defiling the temple of your body with corn based products and live the way the good Lord meant you to. Naked and howling in the wilderness.

This morning's McDonalds breakfast was remarkably shitty. Moreso than usual.

One of the Mcmuffins had nothing on it except cheese. Cheese and muffin. Then the biscuits and gravy had some kind of lumpy white liquid, not gravy at all, slathered on it. I live out of town, so just running back to make them fix things wasn't an option, so I called to bitch a little to sate myself. When I called, the manager said we must have ordered the biscuit that way.Yeah. They blamed it on me and, I'm ashamed to admit, I went into a pretty insane tirade.

If I had ordered just cheese and a biscuit, stupid bitch, would I be calling to complain? No. The problem is that you hire people who are not only dumb as a rock, but others who speak no English at all. Then you put them on the fucking drive-thru. It's not their fault for only speaking Spanish. It's you're fault, loopy cunt, for putting unqualified people in that position and then having the gall to put your minimum wager's fuckup on me.  I hope you die horribly.

Stupid and petty, I know, but this kind of shit happens all the time up there. If working the drive at McD's is beyond your talents, you and those around you are in serious fucking trouble.

My complaint for today is that, but I also sported the Library while I was out, so I got new books to frolic through! And a bag of quick-crete to finish setting the kid's swingset up. That makes my shitty breakfast almost bearable.

You should move out without cleaning the blood stains.

I've always been too jealous to allow such goings on, being the petty little bitch that I am. I'm all for sexual liberation and exploration, fuck yeah. But it complicates things terribly and, by and large, it ruins marriages and relationships. So, I keep that sort of shit far and away from my home and marriage, though I try to live vicariously through my shameless bastard friends.

I've seen alot of these friends wreck the good things in their life by bringing a third into the bedroom. It's easy to say 'Oh, it's just sex. We'll screw this girl -together- and it'll be done'. But things are never so simple.

Removing stitches is really no big deal as long as the incision is healed. Hopefully you got a decent pair of long-nosed surgical scissors..or even a slim-tipped pair of haircutting scissors would work.

You'll need a couple of cotton balls and a little hydrogen peroxide...

Gently glide the tip of the scissor under the stitch, just until it "catches" on the blade. Give it a SLIGHT pull straight up away from the skin and jiggle it gently to loosen it from any scabbing. Once it's loose enough, glide the tip a little further through, and snip it. Then put the scissors down and, with one hand pressing the peroxide-cotton on the incision area and another hand holding one end of the stitch, slowly pull the stitch out of the hole.

What this will do, is minimize any bleeding, clean the hole where the stitch just came out of, and prevent the "OMG you just tugged a stitch out" itch that usually happens when people take out stitches.

Also, get a lawyer about the whole violence in the workplace and enforcement of protection laws thing.

I got bored and looked at other RPIs and the logs. Now I remember why I hated roleplaying.. most other RPIs have horrible roleplay. 80% of "roleplayers" forget to use proper punctuation. Half of the players in some logs are 'guided' by an experienced roleplayer, who's roleplaying skill would be considered only average on Armageddon. And the logs are a yawn-fest, e.g.:
Code: [Select]
Arie bows.
John bows deeply
John smiles at Arie
Arie smiles back.
John lifts his sword high
Arie says, "place your sword upon the altar"
John bows and approaches the Alter
John mutters a prayer as he slowly puts his sword on the Alter
Arie says, "Now we pray together."
Bob prays reverently
George prays reverently
John kneels at the alter and prays

C'mon, what was that log about? I've had more fun moments solo-roleplaying cleaning out the Byn latrines. And that's one of the better games. I've seen another RPI which had animated training dummies and took 4 RL days rejecting my characters' names, all of which were accepted on Arm. Then I entered the land and found all these people using shiny robes and quit right there. And there was this one where you had to emote a swing, type "attack (person)", then emote your miss. And another one where the NPC monsters would sneer at me, yell at me, and bare its teeth, expecting me to either attack it or run away, I guess. Ohh.. and this one which put a lot of effort into making the world immersive, but was full of semi-OOC chat spam. Yeah, you could turn off the chat, but then people would be gossiping about you attacking them or whatever.

I mean not to insult the 'roleplaying' standards of other MUDs, but really, it's why I used to run far away when I saw any game claiming to be a RPI. They'd have all these illogical laws that make the game tougher without being any more fun. God, I hate roleplaying-intensive games :P Give me Armageddon or some other game which is only RP-encouraged.

I have to buy Stabilizer Bars for the front of my car, and even though the parts are only like 50-60 bucks, the whole repair is gonna cost me like 400 or some shit.  I really should learn to repair cars, would save me a shitload.

The Legend of Chung Li was sorta cool, it had some good fighting scenes, but I think the casting choices were sorta horrible, not that the cast sucked, but rather that they didn't follow the Street Fighter characters.  Bison didn't look anything like Bison from the game.  Chung Li, even though the actress was hot, doesn't look asian at all.

I participated in a Murder Mystery with a chick I'm dating last Saturday Night, and I figured out who did what with what, and in my effort to try and help her get second place, ie whispering in her ear everything I knew so she could write it down, she was silly enough to set her paper on the table and the fat nasty bitch next to her copied off her and so I won first place and the fat chick who cheated got second place.

I've complained about this before, but I'm really starting to actually hate this new guy at work. (whereas before I just found him mildly annoying)

So, just now he and some other guys come down to the server room to tell me they're going to clean out one of the labs.  He says that a couple times with an exaggerated wink, obviously insinuating that they want me to help.  When I decline and tell him I'm working on a project, he gets all indignant and says "Oh!  We interrupted him, guys!  Let's leave him alone and go clean!"

It's obvious that the guy thinks I'm a snob.  I believe that we're about the same age, and perhaps he thinks that means I should be lumped into the same group of junior sysadmins/cablemonkeys as him.

The first thing is, I've been at this job three and a half years and during that time I've run more than my share of cables and more than my share of cleaning.  I'm not above it at all.  In fact, often I find doing those sort of activities every now and then is a nice break from wrestling with Microsoft products. 

The second thing is the project I'm working on is actually important.  I'm building a system that the entire division needs, and I'm on a schedule that doesn't give me room to take the morning off and help with something else.

The third thing is, if he wants to be given "cushy" technical projects to work on instead of cleaning and cabling he should go learn some technical skills.  Of the new batch of employees, he seems to have almost zero drive to learn any work-related skills.  I offered him books and software to experiment with, and I know he has plenty of spare time because there aren't that many cables that need running.  I don't have "senior" in my title because I'm a lazy snob.  I have it because I busted my ass for four years in college, and then when I started this job I plugged into an unused server, took the thickest technical manual on hand, and then spent two weeks until I had the thing operational and knew it inside and out.

Maybe being the same age but vastly his senior does make me a snob, but he's still out of line, and I believe I deserve more respect than that.

Explain to him, Moe, that you are the man and he is a peon with nothing to offer you by way of friendship. Then throw something on the floor and make his bitch ass pick it up.

Once you put him in his place he'll be much more respectful. Or he'll kick your ass for insulting him, but either way things will get better.

I probably would suck at playing a noble, which is why I've never tried.

However, "senior" doesn't mean I'm his boss.  It means I've been here longer and I know more about computers.  We both report to the same manager.

I'm more like a senior aide, whereas he's a new servant.  I am actually rather good at playing the senior aide.  If this were Zalanthas he'd probably have vomited up his guts after his morning Red Bull.

Lol, Moe, that's nothing to get worked up over. I meet those kinds of lazy jerks all the time. Heh, they get what's coming to them. If you really want to get your revenge on him, for God's sake, don't help him, help his other buddies. Then they'll get bumped up to your level. You and the friends you stole from him can laugh at him in 2 years.

Or, yeah, ignore. In my experience, most jerks are willing to show off what little they have as loud as they can. If you get riled up about him, he's going to get all the more annoying.

I love companies that already tell you what the salary is before the interview. Personally I don't really give much of a damn if I'm paid $84 extra a month, but what sucks is that when you ask for too little, they start assuming that you're one of those guys they can kick around. I'd rather ask for a low starting salary and then negotiate for a big raise half a year later (after they know I'm useful), but hey, doesn't always work that easy, especially when they toss you with an easy job by assessing your worthy via salary.

Great Boss story: He said he couldn't come in to work on Thursday because he fell outside on an icy sidewalk Wednesday night and hit his head on his front steps, and his three year old daughter just sat there next to him as he lay unconscious on the ground for hours.  Finally, he claims, he woke up in an ambulance, and at the hospital had to have staples put in his skull.  He came in to work this morning looking completely untouched...

O__o

My questions:

Don't they like, shave your head when they put stitches/staples in?
How did he heal from what he claimed was a major head injury that quickly?
His three year old daughter was outside on the driveway with him?
Why did he not just die?

spend an hour counting how many jujubes you bought, one at a time, and charging you some sort of insane taxe that no kids understood back then.

So I got a a call today about an offer to take a job I would LOVE, but the money is not going to be as advertised when they were pushing to bring me in. On the contrary, it's about half as much as was initially offered, without the nice benefits that sweetened the pot. When I asked what happened they say, 'Oh, WP, you just aren't qualified enough to bring home that much. Maybe in five years."

What the fuck? What happened to the fucking offer that was made a month ago, when I was pretty well qualified to run your store by myself AND get rewarded with good benefits? When I was promised a company truck and a comission, on top of my hourly? "Oh, well, things changed over the last month."

Ahhh, so you mean you hired a fucking WOMAN to run your lumber yard, a friend of the owner, whose total previous managerial experience was running a fucking DAIRY QUEEN for five years. "Yup."

From twenty dollar orders of burgers and fries to hundred-thousand dollar orders of building materials. Right. So. "But we still want you to come join the team."

You want me to come in and run this place, at half-pay, while she sports the Manager title and does nothing except kill erections and stink the joint up with her yeasty armpit funk. "Yup."

Fuck you, bitch, go get a job at the makeup counter at WalMart and leave the MenBusiness to the men. You'll know them. They're the ones who turn away in horror from your fat ugly ass when you approach.

Needless to say, I did not take the job, and my hateful attitude saw the offer withdrawn. Fucking bitch. Bitchwhorecuntbitch. I can't wait for the store to go completely under with her in charge so I can cruise by, pointing and laughing.

That's my complaint, but it ain't idle. Sorry if I hurt any feminist feelings. I love the ladies, just not this one.

Christian Dating emails, advertising sexy singles.

I don't know ... for some reason, on the surface, that doesn't seem to be something in line with Christianity. Not that the service is a bad idea, if it were actually Christian based, and not that Christian women can't be sexy, but just that you'd think a Christian Dating Service would advertise having devout people, or offering an 'enlightening' experience, or something...

So, I suppose, my complaint is about fake Christian advertising.

the ridiculous rate of obesity in the United States.

I complain about this often. A few months ago there was the story that more and more doctors are turning away from the overly harsh "you are obese' and instead using the milder 'You are at risk for obesity' for most if not all cases, regardless of the reality, for fear of hurting feelings.

FUCK YOUR FEELINGS. I would rather a doctor tore me apart and humiliated me into action than pussy-foot around issues for fear of hurting feelings. You get over hurt feelings. "You are a disgusting, jiggly piglet. Get off your OBESE ass and excersize three times a week or you'll be sweating yourself into an over-sized grave." That's my kind of doctor.

The weather is beautiful outside, but here I am stuck in the cage of work. Though, being paid double anything I've ever made before without OT being included in some way makes chilling in the air conditioning handling piddly network issues wishing to be outside rather than actually being there. Pay checks are so beautiful!!

Only thing I've watched for months has been BSG, every episode one right after another. Wicked, wicked, series that at first I could not stand until I sat through an entire set of five or six episodes. Makes playing Eve-Online all the more sweeter, except you don't have gorgeous women visibly seen throughout the voyage like BSG.  :-\

Someone sent me a fuming, expletive-riddled email about how that FAKE AMERICAN FROM KENYA, PRESIDENT OBAAAAAMA (get it? because everyone who voted for him is a sheep!), IS GONNA RELEASE THE RAGHEADS FROM GITMO INTO THE STATES AND GIVE THEM WELFARE.

Oh, and it's all because he's a socialist and the country has been brainwashed by the Commiecrats (tm) in Congress.

... Nevermind that the article she links in the email mentions that said detainees are from China and are being released because there were no grounds to charge them with any crime. And it says nothing about the location they are being released to.

But either way, blame the Communists.

Someone guilty of corruption got elected to a senior political post. WTF? That guy is guilty! He has been fined for corruption for abusing his power. Yet he wins by a landslide, just because he has connections with several people high up in the chain? Yes, he's a smart guy, but he uses those brainz to steal more money. God, that guy's been rumored as corrupt for half a decade, it's finally been proven, in court, and they STILL support him? Hell, there's even an extended break when counting all the votes for him.. one minute he's lagging badly behind, three hours later he wins by a landslide. Oh, right, postal votes. Where the military has to vote in front of all their comrades and voting against the government party means that you're a traitor to the country. And traitors in the military tend to get bullied the same way as whistleblowers.

If he cheated, then it's expected. If he's elected, then everyone who voted for him is stupid. You don't vote for someone who's popular with you, but unpopular with the general masses. You yell loudly for weeks when someone in the opposition has a sex scandal, but your own leader is someone who's obviously bad at his job? Hell, I don't trust cheating politicians any more than the next person, because it suggests they're dishonest, but a politician who's been selling off bits and pieces of the country to foreigners? WTF?

Fuck democracy. This is why the inexperienced, uneducated opposition are winning posts throughout the country. They've got no skill but a child could run the government better than some corrupt high-school educated fools. Fuck the excuses about 'losing because the opposition has blogs'. Hell, the ruling party has full control over newspapers and even banned opposition newspapers. What the hell? Didn't it occur to you that censorship suggests that you're hiding something?

I'm not even going to mention what country, because things are so bad there that you could/do get arrested for talking bad against the ruling party.

It's arguable whether Real Democracy is present when you've got a lack of secret ballots and dissent is illegal, but even supposing it is: democracy is not the only or even the primary attribute of good government.  Wise constitutional limitation of government powers probably is.

I take democratic control to be a means of making an already-good government robust against corruption.  People are still entirely capable of voting tyranny upon themselves.

Half my lecturers every semester are crazy.

This year:
1. The twisted evil doctor who writes up everything in his head on the board, regardless of the fact that most of it isn't even in textbooks or the internet. Expects us to write 20 page reports every 2 weeks (though the sample report he wrote was hilarious in how subtly wrong it was).
2. Sadistic math lecturer who looks like he's from some former Soviet military. Tends to belittle students and other math guys who aren't doing his specialty. He has this habit of of posing seemingly simple questions, just to laugh at the student who answers. "Where it touches the curve? TOUCHES? BWAHAHAHA! This- *sketches sloppy function* is touching. Does that look like a tangent line to you? No, no, NO, you are wrong, dear student! Why do you think you are wrong?" *student shirks*
3. Lazy-ass genius. Admittedly, he's a brilliant lecturer, but I've never seen any lecturer do things so.. shoddily. Or stray off topic so much. He runs the class like a chat room. Yet somehow, without seemingly teaching, that guy managed to get us to learn so much about the topic. Problem is that it's impossible to take notes.

Last year:
1. A really smart, good teacher, who has the habit of writing brutally difficult exams. I mean, c'mon, 1 question in 2 minutes? Even IQ tests aren't that strict. I wrote a complaint about that and guess what.. he gave the most brutal exam in the history of the course. But lots of time. He actually gave us questions that the textbooks refused to do because they were too difficult, for 4% of the exam. So, there were like 15 ultra difficult questions, with around 20 normal ones, and the normal ones were considered tough in the past years (4% then, 1% or 2% when I took it). I do not exaggerate.
2. Math genius, excellent researcher, but dear God was he a horrible teacher. He has a tendency of going into loops, laughing at himself, and telling the class how easy everything is. "This one - very easy. You set a = -b. Because b is the negative of a, then therefore any calculation that uses the b, also uses the negative of a. So, setting a to negative b, means that all b is negative of a. So easy!" And the classic, "If you want to solve this problem, you can use this formula. Formula is beautiful. It turns this problem into another problem."
3. Another genius, brilliant in both ethics and actual engineering. That guy has ridiculous expectations of work from students, 3-5 hours of work for something worth 2%. Problem is, everything except the finals is in 2-10% increments for 30% total, so that is a motherfucking shitload of work. Heh, but he actually let me write my ethics assignment on Dwarf Fortress, so much of it was fun. The last test was an hour on writing a page on "what ethics have to do with engineering"   O.o


Hmm.. I'm starting to see a strong correlation between insanity and intelligence here. Oh well, at least they're amusing. Makes torture fun. Now I have to go back to writing a 20 page report by tommorrow and reading another chapter for the day after :(

An ex-state minister, well rumored to be corrupt, spent RM1.7 Mil = $400K on a trip on "Islamic building design" (http://www.nst.com.my/Current_News/NST/Wednesday/Frontpage/20090401195556/Article/index_html). WTF, man? Do you really have to spend that much on architectural design during a recession? And this at a time when the prices of groceries are doubling. They had to cut down on a few thousand worth of scholarships. Heck, they even had to cut the prime minister's entertainment stipend by 3%!

In other news, another government minister who actually wrecked the local industry received an honorary doctorate.  :-\

The team is filled with 200lb gangster bitches and their vato husbands who all stare at me like they hate me. To make matters worse, a few of them threatened last night to split the team and start another in spite of us. My wife handled it, expertly, but the entire time this one woman's cliche of a thug husband stared at me like he was ready to jump on me and fuck me up. Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaaaaa.

Yeah right.

In the Marine Corps, we called it a "credit card swipe" (if you ran the blade of your hand straight down someone's ass-crack) or a "catfish" (if you did so while undulating your hand back and forth as you did it).  Given that probably half the Marine Corps is from Texas, I think your prediction is a little unreasonable.

I would personally just tell them that agitating me any further wouldn't be good.

But, I've seen some pretty absurd scenes result from much smaller incidents than cramming your hands into someone's ass. I once watched a -brutal- barfight spark off of a guy reaching his arm around, over the shoulders, of another bar-goer for something on the bar. "Don't hug me, faggot" Ensue violence. And stuffing your hands into someone's ass is a far-cry from a chance-glance at the urinal or an accidental brush of the fingertips across a nipple.

Besides. The Marines don't count on anything, really. I know alot of people that went to the Marine Corp normal and came back lunatics with no shame or reservations of any sort.

This is why all my posts are so long; I end up having to write long explanations to prevent people from taking things out of context.

And then some idiot decides to rate a really long article 0 out of 5 because he read the last sentence in the article, which was supposed to be a joke. And then the next few people rate the article 0 or 1 because they concluded the article from that comment and the following comments >:(

It's not about showing off knowledge, it's a rhetorical trick:  you attempt to force the debate to take place on your opponent's weakest point.  The more time you spend attacking that weakest point, the more people begin to forget about the others, and begin to believe the debate was only about that point in the first place.

It's also a matter of laziness:  if you disagree, it's easier to simply refute one point and leave.

That's fine when its about debate. Good tactic. But when you're talking about something that has no reason to be attacked, and replace IC info with some dumbed down metaphor, and then some pro comes down with the next comment and says "hey, your metaphor is fucked, man. Here's 40 lines about what you're doing wrong. Glad I could help." Which of course, derails the thread entirely.

Unless of course, those certain forum administrators prefer to attack others than engaging in conversation. I guess that makes sense. Certainly makes sense that people would attack me in articles I write :P

You should get one of your children, probably a young boy, to make a birthday wish that for one day daddy cant lie.

Thanks, WP. I plan to keep that promise. Sooner or later the kids will get wise to their father. I'm hoping for sooner. He did email me last night to say it 'slipped his mind' and he 'felt bad'. He's supposed to call tonight, but I haven't mentioned that to the boys in case he does it again.

And Guess Who? Your idea didn't even work for Hollywood. Stick to the real world, dude. The ex would shrug off a lightning bolt from God and continue on his merry way. Honestly.

I'm back in the UK and it's cold. I've been kicked out of my flat so I'm staying with my Mum and we have no food and I'm really hungry but I'm too jetlagged and tired to go to the store. I am suffering due to hunger and I can't quit out or go LD. If I die, can I get res'd?

I want to be back in Thailand. WHINGE.

Reverse cycle. Okay, so we normally operate at night and I should sleep during the day. No problem, I like pretending to be Batman. It fucking sucks then when we have to go at 0900 in the morning through the AO to another FOB to get bullshit work done and I'm running on 24 hours of no sleep.

Then getting woken up by my boss who's got three ranks over me when I fall asleep in his seat on the truck while we're sitting around bullshitting.

I wanted to punch a cancer doctor today, but didn't, because then they'd be suing us rather than possibly the other way around. I did throw a vehement "fuck" into my conversation, though, and ordered him not to -shrug- in response to my relay of the -specialist's- recommendation.

I hate to be that guy, but you do know that cooked chicken has carcinogens in it right? I personally love the shit, but in the interest of the cancer ridden, you might avoid it.

The guy and his organization aren't doing their job well (from a patient perspective), that's a fact. Yesterday's issue was that the diagnosis has already been made (by more than one doctor, including one of the top specialists in this part of the state), and yet he wants more diagnosis done before he refers for treatment. THAT is definitely his fault.

Maybe that's just part of his job?  Maybe he doesn't want to blindly begin treatment without diagnosing it himself because it would leave him open to a malpractice lawsuit?  Maybe the previous diagnoses were incomplete, and he wants more information?

Whatever the case is, I can pretty much guarantee that he's not doing it because he's incompetent, or because he's an asshole.  If he's in private practice, you might benefit from berating him about it, but if he's working for a hospital or for some large organization, guess what:  there are bureaucrats many levels of management removed from the physician who dictate standard operating procedures.  Griping at the physician you see is very unlikely to be constructive.  Again:  it's (probably) not his fault.
Title: Re: Idle complaints about today
Post by: Gimfalisette on April 21, 2009, 09:08:52 PM
Actually, it's a very large managed care organization, and griping at the physician DID get results. And then griping at the people above him got even more results.

The problem isn't that he's an asshole, it's that he thinks he is the be-all end-all of medicine, and he's pre-determined that my mother's cancer is incurable. He thinks that because -he- couldn't cure it, it's incurable; despite specialists with far more experience than he has stating that it is curable.

This is the problem with most of the doctors I have ever met, actually. In general, I can't stand them, because they all think they know it all and their way is the best/only way.

The WP points at a well-dressed pale man across the way and says with a voice like a thousand babies being burned in a nazi furance in English, "I DEMAND SATISFACTION AT SWORD POINT!"

I seem to remember some guy in the UK a few years ago, demanding trial by combat based on some archaic law that was still on the books. Tragically, duelling was outlawed pretty firmly in the US long ago. No loopholes for me to exploit.

I could tell him that his son, who I went to highschool with, was a well-known cocksucker(4realz). He'd just sue me for defamation of character though.

He probably knows. But you should still make vague comments that reference it.



Walking up to the fellow in question, "Hey there, I went to school with your son. I just want you to know there are no hard feelings even though you are prosecuting me. How is Timmy anyways? Is he still a meat eater?"


You know, things like that, just to get under his skin.

This sort of reminds me of those annoying guys at the gym who walk around the free weights flexing constantly and making really loud grunting sounds to get attention as they show off their massive muscles to anyone that will glance their direction, except, nerdy.

I wonder which group was more starved for attention as children.

Idle complaint: I made a joke project about making some project with killer robots, then half a day later, a bunch of people comment and mail me telling about how cool it looks. Damn it, I even made the project sound as lame as possible and people actually showed more interest in it than my serious ones. One guy even made a mock up title screen (http://i262.photobucket.com/albums/ii89/smuz86/muzgamemenu.png) for it.

Idle complaint: Weapons discussion makes me twitch. Lol, damn you nerds need to pick up a club and a dagger and see how it's like to beat someone up with them. You do not apply mass combat examples to single weapon combat. A spear is not a blunt sword with a pointy bit on it. Daggers barely qualify as real weapons. You should not expect to kill anyone with a dagger, it's a significant step above unarmed, but a significant one below any half-assed sword. Most of melee combat is in the movement of every point of the body from the foot to the arm.. not the arm alone and proper dodgers don't dodge like a head blow by simply moving their heads, they move almost all of the body. GAH, just try to move a heavy object with your wrist, you can not do it. To deal decent damage, you need far more than just your wrist. Similarly you dont block blows just by putting your shield in front of your face, that makes the person hit the shield, which will smack you in the face. Pain does not work in true combat due to the effect of adrenaline (which is why Bynners scream when pricking a finger on a rose, lol).

It's not simple rock-paper-scissors. I have 31 pages of essays on the behavior of simulated combat - armored, on unsteady ground, mass combat, multiple combatants, ranged combat into a melee, effects of injury, polearms, sword usage against large creatures. That doesn't even cover it. It is not simple. Combat in Armageddon is beautiful - the code works like it should and you can emote the rest.

Not aimed at anyone in particular.

I have to stop these combat-related rants. Limiting myself to 300 words vs 1 post.

Sooooo I powered it off before more of the data could be written over, and I`m waiting on responses from those who know more than I do before I try to strip the raw data directly off the thing, piece by piece.

Sometimes you just need an extra something that can't be cookie-cut.

In all seriousness, it is nice to see you back.


Back to thread topic:  Idle complaint about today is that morning came way too early, my fiance's idiot brother gave me lip (which I couldn't fatten) for waking his lazy couch-sleeping ass up, and no longer being able to MUD from work (for a while).

At least I got out of the house early and went to hang out with my tattoo artist and have some truly enjoyable coffee instead of the brown swill they schlep off on us here at work.  (They buy the surplus, aged airline bags.  So it's barely one step up from thrice used grounds.)

Do it anyways. If the fiance respected you she would understand that you have your own pride and her family should not be allowed to walk all over it. If your fiance's brother is sleeping on your couch he should respect the fact he is being allowed to sleep on your couch and shut his mouth, else he deserves the fat lip in question. Put plainly, step up to the plate.

Ladies: Keep your hair long. I don't understand this fetish lately of foxy ladies with dudish haircuts.

Sexy hair is long hair.

If you think your hair looks like a particularly ugly mushroom, you are probably right. Punch your sister in the face and hide out until it gets long and attractive again.

I like short hair on the ladies.  Not dude-short (and certainly not military-short or any other sort of buzz), but a short to medium bob cut.

EDIT: I also like punk styles except for mohawks and anything that requires significant scalp shaving.  Dyes are fine by me too.

Personal preference. I like to run my fingers through long hair and all that good stuff. My wife cut her hair awhile back and I was furious.

So I colored my beard green for a few days and swore it was permanent unless her long locks came back. She promised and I shaved the greenery out, but still have the coloring in case I got to put a wench in her place. ;)

Insomnia and the inability to sleep for one night aren't the same. But onec again, I'm just being a douche, so it doesn't really matter. All further discussion on this topic will be diverted to your thread.

I'm totally chilling to WP's "How it ends" suggestion.

Complaint:

I get a few calls last night, after midnight when I was hidden out drinking beer under the radar and heckling you fine Arm-folks, about "Where the fuck is Alfred?"

Dunno, guys. He irritates the shit out of me, so we don't hang much. Or at all, really, unless we see one another randomly at the bar or whatever. Why?

"Well, he beat his wife so bad he ruptured her spleen and they're flying her to Dallas. Your name came up a few times when we were asking around. If you're hiding him, give him up or face the consequences."

Okay, first of all, fuck you. Don't call me threatening consequences. If he was in my reach after learning that, he wouldn't be a person any longer, but a sobbing pile of flesh and splintered bone. Second, don't involve me in this shit. My name came up a 'few times' because stupid sonsabitches like you toss names around without thinking. Do I see this fucker regularly? No. Am I the sort that would hide his bitch ass out if I DID see him? NO. Am I the sort of person that will kick YOUR stupid ass for bandying my name around with his? Yes. Definately so.

Makes matters worse is that once upon a time the beaten-wife was best friends with my own wife and now I'm expected to be hunting a motherfucker down. Sorry guys. This has happened before, a few times even, and, shitty and heartless as it is to say it, if you're too  much of a loopy cunt to NOT LEAVE A MAN WHO BEATS YOU, my sympathy is in short supply. I'll kick a motherfuckers ass if he comes round, no doubt, but I'm not gonna go hunting. This angers my wife which in turn angers me.

Hurts though. She's real fucked up and is a pretty, petite and sweet girl. Baffles me how anyone could beat on someone like that. It'd be like kicking the shit out of a child or an old lady.

-WP hates mankind a little more today but appreciates being able to bitch about it here. Damnit.

There is this one paperwork thing that I'm required to do at my job, which basically involves receiving some paper from another department, checking it over for accuracy of the data, then forwarding it to a 3rd department which has to report stuff to the government. Now, this sounds simple and unimportant, but I work in the booze industry, and when something needs to be reported to the government then it NEEDS to be reported, or they get all pissy and have the power to do really nasty stuff to us.

So that's the background.

The issue at hand is that the people who are supposed to forward the paperwork to me every day--they are supposed to put it in my mailbox, sounds not so hard, right?--APPARENTLY are actually unable to do this task on a daily basis. Oh, I know they DO the paperwork, because eventually I get it, but they consistently run one FRICKIN day behind on simply PUTTING IT IN MY DAMN BOX. Why is it so difficult to MOVE the PAPERS on the day they are completed?!?!?!

And why do I have to repeatedly remind them that the papers need to be moved and that the government cares about this crap?!?!?!

WHY?!

Omg I locked my keys to my house in my store.

My keys to the store are on the same keyring.

Omg

I call the other people with keys and they aren't picking up!

I'm sitting outside the store like a lost puppy


My phone battery is low, too!


I called security but they said they don't carry tenant keys.

I remembered that my iPod touch has wifi so I can still go on the Internet.

I just am waiting for midnight when someone gets off their other job so they can open the door

Sucks man.  Can you play arm on your ipod?

I can on my blackberry but I can't press ~ with the free client ifound. If there is an iPhone one I haven't seen it.


I found a client
Its okay, but I managed to get ahold of the last coworker and happened to "lose his keys"

So I'm taking a taxi home and hoping travis is there to let me in.


Why is it raining outside!!!!!!!!


Fuuuuuuuuuu


I love trading a taxi ride home for my business card.

:sigh:


There was no taxi at the taxi stand so I went to mcdonalds

I ordered a junior chicken and a double cheeseburder
And a sundae

AND THEY WERE OUT OF ICED CREAM!!!!


Oh god oh god travis isn't home.
I can't get into my apartment.

And my arm dude is linkdead :(


Hah I managed to log in on my blackberry and log out.

I'm going to stay at my ex-girlfriend's house.  Dare you say - trouble?


She's sleeping with her boyfriend when I arrived
So I'm now drinking crown royal


0) It rained that night.  I just paid 100 bucks to get my bike all fixed and shiny and new and I had to leave it out in the rain.
1) I slept on my friend's BED at the "party house", while everybody went out for a party.  Until my friend came home at 2 a.m. and said, GET OUT I WANT TO SLEEP
2) I tried to sleep on the couch, but I couldn't manage to get to sleep until about 7 a.m.
3) My ex-girlfriend, Emily, and her boyfriend walk downstairs at 7 and say they are going to go get a UHAUL and move out.  She says I can sleep in her bed, which I do.  It was a nice 2 hours.  Until they come back with the UHAUL and we proceed to move out Emily, her boyfriend, and her wife, Zoe.  I help with the move because I've helped with the last 10 moves, and I'm super strong.
4) Zoe's new apartment gets told she isn't allowed to move in, and she starts to cry.  Emily saves the day and convinces the leathery old woman with fake hair to let her move in.  We move in quickly.  Emily's place is easier, and we move in.  She orders beer and pizza once the night is done, and I look at my watch and say, "Well, time for me to start my shift at work.", and I leave without enjoying any of the spoils.
5) I really notice that I have shortness of breath over the past couple days, and it was really bothering me, so I tried to go to a drop-in clininc after work, but it was closed.  I ride my bike in the cold to a bar, and get a beer with a friend who's going away, and I'm coughing deeply.  I ride my bike home and I have a fever all night.
6) I wake up, and I go help a friend build a playground in his background, and then I ask him to drop me off at the Emergency Hospital.  I wait 2 hours before seeing a doctor, and get a chest xray.  an hour later they say I have an infection in my lungs - PNEUMONIA.
7) I go to work and close the store, and don't bother to change into uniform.  I come home, relax in my apartment - which is directly beside the front entrance to a 17 story building.  Its sorta nice to live on the first floor - no stairs.  I was outside petting a cat that was meowing and my next door neighbour was like - so, did you wonder what all that noise and lights were on thursday night?
and i'm like - what was it?
and he said - someone jumped off the 17 story.  landed RIGHT BESIDE YOUR BEDROOM WINDOW.  I called 911 after I heard the bump.

wow.  If I didn't lock my keys in the door, I would of gotten to see a dead body land outside the window.

I get up to 180 of any prescription medication for $3 if it's generic through the mail. In America. So does my sister who works for a completely different employer and has a completely different insurance carrier.

On the other hand I know people who don't have any rx coverage at all who have to pay full price for all meds, unless they're lucky and the meds they need are available at Walmart's pharmacy for only $4.

So if you're getting 6 pills for $10, consider that if you didn't have rx coverage, it could be a whole lot worse.

Ehh, I don't worry about whether veggies are alkaline or not. This is all green veggies. Basically I need to eat more of them, and replace grains in my diet. I'm very, very carb-sensitive and my previous level of carbs from grains and fruits just wasn't working for me (too much hunger, too many cravings, feelings of dependency). But like a true carb-lover, I don't enjoy the process of replacing/reducing grain/fruit carbs with veggie carbs.

I've personally been thinking about getting in on the white supremacist racket. Not because I hate other races or am all that proud of being a white man, but because I saw a KKK show on the History Channel awhile back and the main klan speaker was ranting "We hate niggers, we hate spics, and we hate Jews. We don't need no reason to hate 'em! We hates 'em because they BREATHE! Look out nigger, the Klan is getting bigger!" lmfao.

I figure a fairly intelligent and eloquent blogger could electrify the masses of dumb-fuck hillbillies into sending me their money. Then, once I made a million or five, I could suddenly post a picture of me making out with my foxy mexican wife. SUPRISE, FUCKERS!

And then make another wad of money writing a book on my adventures. It would be titled "Just kidding, guys. It's really YOU I hate."

So, continuing my story from last week, I come in to work early today to finish up my report before the meeting during which I am to deliver it.  It's a monstrous 2000 page ordeal, but I summarize it in one small chart.  9:00 rolls around, I run into my boss, tell him I'm on the way to the meeting and he's like "what meeting"?  Apparently, unlike last time where everyone was told about the meeting but me, this time I was the only one told about it, and the person who told me about it had herself another meeting at the same time.  I'm pretty pissed, so I just drop the CD and paper chart on her desk and walk away.

Unfortunately, she catches me just before I make a clean getaway and we go back to her desk.  She looks over the chart and says, I quote: "This... actually this looks pretty good." with a tone that clearly meant she expected me to have virtually nothing done.  For a moment, I allow myself to feel some pride.  A second later, though, she turns back to me and says "So you should be able to finish this by... next week?"

Pardon my language, ladies, but I truly wanted to leap over that cubicle divider and backhand that bitch.  Before I was looking at an estimated time of completion around the end of the month.  She knew that too.  There's also a significant section of documentation that must be submitted with the completed package that she has to write, and I know she hasn't done it, so they can't be waiting on me.  Not only that, given the schedule with the vendor, I also know that the completed system doesn't need to be online for at least two months, more likely 3-4.  I'm being rushed around by this idiot for no good reason.

I try to tell my boss all this, but he says he'd like to try and meet her requests (I don't think he's realized that she's not above him in office "rank").   I'm also starting to think he doesn't like me, which sucks because my old boss believed I shat gold.

So now I'm working overtime this week trying to train two newbies (good people, just inexperienced) to help me get this done, and even then I'm quite certain it won't be finished by next week.

In short, I'm over-worked, tired, pissed-off, and hungry.

I'll admit that I'm probably a bit too non-confrontational.  However, I also don't want to rattle anyone higher-up because I've been working on getting transfered full-time to a different project for more than a month now.

Also, while I'm not happy about it, I know I can handle it.  Much as I hate to admit it, for some reason when I'm pissed off I am extremely productive (also my reflexes and cognition improve and I've scored like 75% of my high scores in Geometry Wars after coming home angry about work or being cut off in traffic or something).  I guess there's worse ways to express anger, though.

Was also told when started the job(got it through a friend but still had to go to the temp agency) after 3mo's i'd be hired. Unfortunately its been 6mos about, they announced after the first of the year they would not hire temps on until the economy improves. Was told by a friend I could collect unemployment for the lost 8 hrs a week, however according to unemployment, I didn't make enough in the current time period to even collect. And finding permanent positions isn't so good.

So this local gas station pretty much ruined a little anniversary date I was having. First we were going to go down and get some coffee, then go to the beach, then have a semi-cheap meal at a local place.

Before we went I filled my car up with gasoline, cost me 14.50$. We then drove for 45 minutes to the coffee shop before the beach. Got two coffee's, scanned my debit card and..my card had no money on it. I was really embarrassed and couldn't buy them. I knew I had 75$ in my account, double checked my checkbook, I should've had 61$. So, being perplexed I drove home. Got on my computer and logged onto my online banking account.

Apparently the gas station decided to charge me 75$, every cent that was in my account. Then I was pissed. I drove down to the station, talked with the cashier politely and got ahold of the manager. Basically I was told that because the offices were closed on weekends, I had to wait till Monday to go down to their home office which is two hours away, fill out an assload of paper work and then wait 2-3 weeks to get my money back. I told them that it was bullshit and plain and simple robbery and that I knew they were making money of the interest of my money they have in their bank accounts. Then she gave me some bullshit new policy that they charge a 75$ surcharge for all debit card and gift card purchases of gas(I say BS because I filled my tank up 3 days ago and paid with my debit card). So even if I do get my money back, the bastards make money off the interest of holding it in their accounts.

Talked to mom about it, apparently the owner is a sleezebag and has done tons of illegal stuff. Just last summer he was caught major price gouging during that storm that hit Texas that scared gas prices up and had to pay 500k in fines. He lost a lot of buisiness because all sorts of buisnesses stopped dealing with him, including the dealership my mom works at. She then decided to go down and talk to the manager. She got the same story. So she'll be talking with the local paper and TV station as she knows the head editor and the producer respectively of each and is going to warn people.

The $75 dollar thing.

Many gas stations put a hold on your account when you purchase via Credit/Debit.  That was not a surcharge.  Stations that surcharge for Credit/Debit usually figure this into their operating costs, but some stations automatically balance it into fuel costs in their machines and pass the cost on to you, the customer.  If you're observant sometimes you'll see the prices of gas rise 2-3 (or more) cents per gallon if a station does this.

This 75 dollar deal was probably a "hold" on your account until the actual amount of purchase passes.  Once the station is paid your fourteen bucks the hold for the money goes away.  I've seen upwards of 50 dollar holds on my card.  75 is a bid ridiculous unless you live in a place where people drive gas guzzlers with 20+ gallon tanks.

Worth a try: next time, go into the station and tell them to put exactly $15 on your card...as though you were prepaying with cash.

Cardswiping for gas is convenient, but awfully dicey if you're doing it on your primary checking and aren't flush.

I was told it was literally a surcharge, not any kind of holding. She didn't offer any rationality except saying I had to wait to Monday to go down to process paperwork to get my money back. And it makes no sense because 3 days ago I went to the same station and bought roughly the same amount of gas with the same debit card and have been buying at that station with my debit card for over a year and a half. Considering the owners history, I wouldn't put it past him. I asked the manager if this happened to anyone else and she told me 'Yes', and that after a week they got their money back and thanked her. I told her I wasn't going to thank her for taking my money and then giving it back.

Call VISA/Mastercard/whatever and tell them that this station is adding large surcharges to credit purchases.

There's a supermarket near my home that sells stale milk, ignore the alleged "sale" prices on their goods, and sells rotten chicken. As in chicken that's already black, with flies buzzing over them and a rotten scent that fills that area of the supermarket. I don't know why people still buy from there. Apparently, they're making more money than the previous owners of the supermarket, who were excellent with customer service. And while police regularly shop there, they tend to ignore it, just like they ignore the stall that sells pirated CDs near it.

Get his name in the paper a few times and send your friends up there to casually mention seeing it as they buy a pack of smokes. Just blackball his ass. He'll change his tune quickly enough, I'm sure.

A 75$ surcharge is lunacy, especially over 15$ gas. Can you really do shit like that? I have a bank account with a debit card that is seperate from the 'family' account, and I rarely keep more than 50 dollars in it, and that only so I can buy beer or smokes and little shit without having to hit an ATM.

Things like this are why I deal in cash as much as possible.

Might I suggest dissociatives? Ketamine, dextromethorphan, or even PCP?

Right now I'm just using City of Heroes and Sims 2 for my escape methods.

Instead of tossing the trash in the dumpster last night I played lazy and just set it beside the can, planning to do it today.

This was a tragic mistake as there was the lid off a tincan in there and stumbling through the house last night to fill my water glass I stepped on the fucking thing. It hurts so much and bled like an axe wound. So today I have massive limp, a sore toe, blood all over my kitchen, and an appoinment with the PO.

Shit.

I refuse to cope with anything without vocalizing my disdain. It makes me feel better. Who gives a shit what YOU think of it?

The internet doesn't count. The post was intended for those retards bitching about the length of a line, or that the service they're recieving is a bit too slow, and other stuff out of their control.  As far as who gives a shit? I doubt many, but the same applies to any one of us.

My children took every opportunity possible today to whine, complain, and outright cry about things we were doing together in celebration of the youngest's birthday, such as: Learning to roller-skate, miniature golf, video / arcade games, burgers at In N Out. Days like this, there is just no fucking reward in parenting, at all. Tomorrow is Mother's Day, and to be honest, right now I just feel like cancelling it.

I hear Larry Sellers lives near the In N Out Burger on Camrose, and he's a real fucking brat.

Idiots.  By idiots I mean to say people who invariably find fault with all that surrounds them, and an inability to cope without vocalizing their disdain.  They go through life never realizing we're all subject to the same hiccups, but it's their perception that's broken --- not the world.

Heh, I do give a shit about what people say. I like seeing angry people. I like the drama.

Sometimes I wish I didn't give a damn. It would be fun to have another GDB alt who didn't.

Alright, before everyone gets retarded here --- let's remember mansa went to an EMERGENCY room for a chest xray --- as opposed to going to his own doctor, and getting a referral to any number of labs throughout the city.  Rest assured, if this were an EMERGENCY he'd have been dealt with promptly.

This is an idle complaint about yesterday, but here goes:

So I didn't check the class assignments page all weekend, and it turns out we were supposed to read this research article about BMP4 expression and beak morphology in Darwin's finches.  The homework for the week was to write a 1-page summary of the research.

Obviously, I didn't do it.  Yesterday's class period was spent discussing the article...so I'm like "great, I have 5 minutes before class to skim this thing and pretend like I read it...and of course Dr. Miyamoto -knows- I didn't read the fucking thing, because I didn't turn in the damn  homework assignment."

So...despite the fact that I only spent 5 minutes skimming a 5-page article (along with catching up on bits and pieces as the class progressed)...I spent the entire class session answering all the questions about it and explaining the details to people.

IF YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT A BrdU ASSAY IS, LOOK IT UP, PEOPLE.  AND IF YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT A RETROVIRAL VECTOR IS IN YOUR FOURTH FUCKING YEAR OF BIOLOGY, YOU SHOULD STOP NOW AND CHANGE YOUR DEGREE PLAN TO GETTING A B.S. IN BEING A COMPLETE DIPSHIT.

I hate maths. OK, I don't hate it exactly, I just hate how fast people pick it up. What I fucking hate is that I have only 6 hours a week to learn a whole chapter, and I'm expected to master it completely before moving on to the next. That 6 hours does not include sleeping, eating and entertainment. Assuming I sleep only 6 hours a day, I have only 68 hours of free study time a week, and around 20 hours is spent on assignments and reports. And around 10 hours is spent being burned out from extensive cramming.

I have to finish creating an electronic filter from scratch next week, which is frankly, the easy one. By 3 weeks I have to code, from scratch, a completely functional chat client that registers and supports multiple user and a system that records via a microphone, changes it to digital form, stores it, and transmits it over the internet at different sampling frequencies.

And I have only until the end of this weekend to understand how to mathematically handle vector fields and how those damn 3 squiggly lines work.

I don't mind working hard, I just hate that the time limit doesn't give me enough time to even read things. It's only my second semester here! I'm going to crawl into a ball and panic for 5 minutes, then get back to work :'(

Lol, that's why I love you guys, none of that false sympathy crap.

Anyway, I covered around 4 chapters today, enough to get a 1/10 on the next test, so I'm feeling a lot better. With equal effort and luck tomorrow, I'd be able to scrape that 6/10 for the next test.

I suppose I could toss in another complaint that even though I'd be able to code a chat client in 3 weeks (i.e. two full days), my barely-passing grade will make it hard for me to get a job later on. Bah, screw engineering, I'll just be a guy who makes indie games in his spare time. With the currency conversion rate, getting 8 customers a week with $20 games should earn me more than a starting level engineer makes. After all, Mat Dickie (http://www.mdickie.com/) charges more for his stuff and even has a book.

So it's not a complaint.  Shut up.

My burger and fries from McD's was fucking disgusting tonight. The fries were cold and the burger was a shrivelled dump in a box that had obviously been sitting out on the counter for a few days before they gave it to me.

So I filed an online complaint. Hopefully they'll close down and demolish this shithole and bring in an Arby's or something.

That's why I avoid insurance. It's a scam. Just like those casinos.
Unless you're injury prone or something, but then you'll still be paying more.

I was walking to the smoke shop today to get a new glass piece with my brother, because the construction crew working across the street blocked off my driveway.  So after I got to the smoke shop, bought what I wanted and left I decided to get some tacos.  Got my tacos and noticed my arms were breaking out into hives.  Strangely enough the only spots that were affected were the ones exposed to the elements as I walked down the street.

I'm beginning to think it may be something in the air like a certain pollen.  Doctor visit for me tomorrow.

Went to the dermatologist to get some stitches out today.  I got there on time, got right in, and within 5 minutes the nurse already had my stitches out. Then I had to wait for over an hour (about 70 minutes) for the dermatologist to come in, glance me over for about 3 seconds, and tell me I could go.

I was having a good day until I got off work.  On the commute home I dodged 5 accidents; every single one because someone was being an idiot, a jerk, or both.  On top of that, the replacement bank card I was expecting in the mail today didn't come.  My plans for the evening have fallen through.  All my friends are leaving for Memorial Day weekend.  I've watched everything on my DVR.  I've got no cash (unless I want to rush to the bank).  No gas (unless I get cash).  No food.  Nothing good on TV.

All I've got is... two cases of beer and Armageddon.  Eh, maybe the evening won't be so bad after all.
