I suppose I've always found this outburst curious. Another friend of mine dumped his SO along similar grounds. He basically said that his SO was trying so hard to make the relationship work that it didn't seem fair to the SO to try to keep things together.

My question is thus: Why would you dump someone who tries to make the relationship work (especially if you really do love them)?

I don't do drugs because of:

A: It's Illegal, No I'm not saying it's "wrong" I'm saying it gets you fucking arrested. I need to save my 2 remaining strikes for when I lose my temper.

B: It's expensive, There are other stuff I'd rather pour my money into, such as travel, food Alcohol (note for Hypocrisy), my hobbies, my computer, well lets just say that drugs end up very far down on the list.

C: I might now of the risks and the perhaps non-existant long term effects having studied Bio-chemistry at the university of stockholm and all. However, my boss probably doesn't and I'd like to keep my job, sweden is small, word travels fast.

And THIS is because Berengal Ninjad me :D :) :o :shock: :lol: :twisted:

Nice summary, SecondTalon.

@angry confessions: Where, exactly, did 'I wonder why I don't see many angry confessions' become mistranslated into 'I want to see more angry confessions'?

The thing is, anger intrigues me, and so I study it quite a bit.

@ThorFluff: 'Hypocrisy', not Hypocratsi

@TigerX: The only thing I see as a tie or reason in these situations is guilt on the underachieving partner's side. And what cypher space said.

Here's to being ninja'd three times.

...Confession: I want to rant about organised religion yet again, even though my coherence steadily drops as I say more and more about it. But it's completely screwing up my life right now - without it, I'd be really happy with my life at this moment.

And I've taken so long to write this, that I've been ninja'd seven times. That's quite annoying, too.

Salvia seems like it would be really cool to try (and legal and safe? too!), but then again you hear about bad trips where people get stuck as a piece of furniture for 20 years (in dream/trip time.) Wouldn't that be weird, living out an entire lifetime inside a dream state.


I've tried tracking down the stories of "Dude did too much acid and now thinks he's an orange!". I've tried and tried and tried.

This is as close as I've come to finding a true case of any of the acid myths. ONE case of a dumbass staring at the sun.

ONE. (And for what it's worth, Snopes either didn't catch that one, or has resources beyond mine to discount it)

And I've yet to find anything concrete on someone thinking they're an inanimate object. Something like that would be in medical journals. There'd be papertrails. Rather than an anonymous "Some college kids", they'd say "And there's John Brown, now 46 who's still locked up in Indiana's Westgate Mental Asylum, screaming anytime anyone comes near him, afraid of being peeled" or whatever.

There are none. So, in short.. doesn't happen.

Of course, don't get me wrong.. drug use isn't something to be done lightly. Hence.. research research research before you decide to take anything.

Also, fora are actually a pretty good resource for this kind of stuff, interestingly enough. Here:

@Cheese:

In practice, Meaux is spelled Moe.

In text, you still use the s, as you only remove it in plurals and where it is redundant, as I recall.

I'm not even sure you remove it in cases of redundancy, come to think of it.

I wouldn't trust the advice you get from a forum any more than I'd trust that everyone on a forum is exactly who they say they are.



As for bad trips.. well, yeah, but that's all mood anyway. Doing a hallucinogenic when you're in anything but a good mood is idiocy.

It's taken me a couple of hours, but I did finally catch up on all the confessional thread that I missed over the weekend. At several points I've wanted to say something, but it all seems kind of trivial now and I can't remember what it was anyhow.
On the subject of emoticons, Google Talk plain style faces are way classy, I was really disappointed when we were even given the option of something yellow. \m/ is my favourite. I can't figure out +/'\. Is it ringing a bell? That's all I've got.
I have nothing to offer anybody except my own confusion.

Confession: Being a considerably shy virgin closing in on 30, with few (male) friends left, I'm considering taking up a few extracurricular/after-work activities I'm not actually interested in just to see whether I'm lucky enough to meet some cool people, especially women.

I feel so incredibly slimy (and yes, I do wonder what you people might think about this.)

Ideas so far: English conversation classes (my spoken English is light years behind its written counterpart,) improv theater, ballroom dancing. There's actually some slightly involved reasoning behind the last one, but I won't bore you people with it.

You need to depend on those male friends of yours to find potential partners for you. You'll have much better luck being paired by someone who knows you both compared to randomly trying to meet someone.

But meeting new people is a benefit in itself. If those people are introduced by friends, so be it, but I agree with cypher in that it's in no way slimy to go out and meet people.

No-one needs to get 'paired'. I find the concept kind of disgusting, actually.

And I think you'd have an easier time making friends with an activity you are interested in, as then you'd have a common interest to base discussion on.

Admittedly, this is coming from a guy who, while younger and having been in one relationship, is in much the same situation as you socially.

My friend isn't much better off than I am, I'm afraid. Only marginally.

Also, to clarify: teh secks itself is not my main priority at all--I've learned to live without it as you might imagine. I just can't stand being alone anymore.

I'm going to chime in. Seriously, I was miserable when all I could think about was how lonely I was. Then I started going into the mountains regularly, excercised more, started cooking healthy foods, was more organized, and confident.

Suddenly, without really realizing it, I had quite a few girls interested in me. And they are all still great friends.

The point is, the more you focus on how much you want something you don't have, the more you'll feel it's void. Finding a girl won't make that better.

Happy Birthday. From your fora joining date and assuming you use the same 365 day (366 this year) calender as the rest of us, I can safely infer that you are at least one year old. Have you developed object permanence yet?

I'm still not a raisin fan, but this weekend I was really hungry and the only food available was a trail mix of nuts, M&Ms, and raisins. I didn't really feel like picking them out . . . and . . . it was pretty good. I'm still not gonna go out and buy a box for a snack, but I also won't go out of my way to avoid them in otherwise delicious situations.

But still - fuck them for ruining oatmeal cookies.

Hey mister, I like raisins. Actually, I don't like them oatmeal cookies either. I have a similar thing with cherries; I don't care for them alone, but they make good flavoring for everything else.

You've got a point. I'm having similar issues, and it's probably because all I'm focused on right now is getting my homework done and how much doing said homework sucks (monkey balls). It probably doesn't help that I can't tell if a girl is flirting with me, or is just trying to steal my drink (non-alcoholic of course :wink: ).

About Smilies: Despite my use of a smiley in that last response, I will say that I'm not a huge fan of them in general. They help with conveying certain meanings for phrases that would otherwise be taken literally (see above smiley), but otherwise I find them annoying.

Finally, confession: I just wasted spent more time in here than I had intended. This crap just won't go away!

Confession: This is the first job I've had where no one seems to care about lateness or calling in or whatever.

I don't get this. Our assistant manager JUST DIDN'T SHOW UP one day a couple weeks ago...yet no one seemed to mind, and he still has his job.

We have a fairly small staff, yet it's no big thing to call in sick if you just don't feel like working that day. Our manager doesn't care. He doesn't care if we're late, either. He himself was an hour late today.

Yet still, I can't bring myself to call in, even if I really do feel sick. Screw you, conscience!

(For reference, I work at one of the retail outlets for Home Shopping Network.)

We have a couple.

The one I work in is exclusively for HSN employees.

The stuff that is used on the air by the hosts and the models comes to my store, and the people who work for HSN get the opportunity to buy it for dirt cheap. Most of it is old lady clothing and gaudy jewelry. Every now and then, though, we get some decent electronics.

Confession: I just discovered that the max font size allowed here is 200 (though I decided on 150 to avoid being ridiculous. I don't think it helped).

@ Malsies: The fact that you work at a HSN outlet is probably why no one cares if you show up late (like TigerX, I had no idea HSM had outlets). But seriously, what are some of the things that you do at such a place? Is it anything unique or just the same stuff you'd do at any other retail store?

Cookies: Fuck Oatmeal Cookies and all of their raisin'd brethren. Black and White cookies are where it's at. It's ethnic harmony on a cookie!

Mr. Orange: Happy Birthday.

Cheese: Read This. It is a tiny victory. I want to shake Mr. Rothschild's hand. Most importantly this:
Spoiler:
THE COURT: Counsel, do you have anything further before we adjourn these proceedings? From the plaintiffs?

MR. ROTHSCHILD: No, Your Honor. Thank you.

THE COURT: From the defendants?

MR. GILLEN: Your Honor, I have one question, and that's this: By my reckoning, this is the 40th day since the trial began and tonight will be the 40th night, and I would like to know if you did that on purpose.

THE COURT: Mr. Gillen, that is an interesting coincidence, but it was not by design.

(Laughter and applause.)

With that, I declare the trial portion of this extended case adjourned.

I spend most of my day processing new merchandise. No big deal. Our store is little more than a warehouse, so there's not a whole lot of effort put into keeping it neat.

The other outlets are nicer, and have a better selection. Their prices are a lot higher, though.

Confession: I'm procrastinating, I have to write 1000 words on crime and deviance, by tomorrow at 2pm.
I'm able to do the 1000 in under an hour, but I really would rather have done it before the normal morning, I'm saying this here so I can force myself to start work upon it as I have talked about it.

Confession: I just made a post on the internet claiming there is no free will. I have a little clock on my desk that counts down the minutes until the flames rage out of control.
