So, if you take your car to a shitty mechanic and the shitty mechanic can't fix the problem, it doesn't mean the notion of car repair is bullshit - it means you had a shitty mechanic and perhaps shopping around for a different one is a good idea.

There's a lot of bullshit in therapy though. It's only recently (and I mean, like the last few decades) its people have started basing therapy on scientific evidence. Freud, while he did a lot to advance the field, also left it in a rather unfortunate place that it has taken ages to get out of. I'm not saying everything he came up with was bullshit, only large portions of it. And it's still sadly flaunted as truth.

Freud is not flaunted as truth. It is a much more common opinion among psychologists that it's a deep misfortune that philosophers or other folks in other disciplines still pay attention to someone so resoundingly discredited.

Yes.
I went to two therapists who didn't do shit in my case, either. I started thinking that the whole therapy thing is bullshit, etc, but after a certain series of events, I decided to visit a third therapist. She definitely does wonders for me. :wink:

Yeah, even though I've had several (online) friends rant about how terrible therapists are, I can't help but think talking to somebody about stuff generally makes a problem easier to solve/bear than if I keep it to myself, and if that somebody has got a little bit of education on the topic as well that's probably not a bad thing.

The traffic light at biggest intersection in town is not working? Well OK, shit happens and whatnot. It's taking more than a full day to fix for some reason? Alright, I'm not an expert on traffic light repair, I guess it's just a really big problem. But when it's the middle of the fucking day and you don't have a traffic cop out, instead opting for the "world's largest 4-way stop sign cluster-fuck" method of traffic management, I just can't help but think that you people don't really know how to run a city.

Man, that sucks. No one knows what to do when the light is out. Turns into a stop sign you morons. Of course no one knows how to properly use a stop sign either so even knowing that doesn't help. People are idiots.

The drivers were actually doing a decent job of figuring out the right-of-way, it's just that as a stop sign intersection, it can only handle 2 or 3 cars in the intersection at one time. When we are talking about the intersection of the two largest roads in town, there is no way that it doesn't end up with giant back-ups.

Spoilered for egoistic, highly emotional rant about failing an exam and consequently feeling like a failure.
Spoiler:
AAAAARRRRRRGGGGGGHHHHHHHHH :evil: :evil: :evil: :cry:

COMPLETELY fucked up an exam today. An exam for which I thoroughly prepared, and because of which I didn't study some other things.
I made a gazillion mistakes. Ranging from incorrectly solving some 3x3 determinants in vector analysis, over completely overseeing some things in relativistic mechanics, to writing arccos(1)=pi/2. :shock:
I'd know that arccos(1)=0 if you'd wake me in the middle of the fucking night, BUT APPARENTLY NOT ON MY EXAM, WHERE I'M SUPPOSED TO DEMONSTRATE THAT FUCKING KNOWLEDGE.

I feel completely devastated.
And I've let myself down badly.
I admit, I even worry about what the prof thinks of me now. I mean, I've already fucked up one colloquium from his subject, fucked up when we repeated that colloquium, and now this. On the other hand, he seems to be very fond of my boyfriend. I don't want him to think I'm some stupid girlfriend who tries to be good at physics but MAJORLY SUCKS. I don't want him to think that I'm a worse future physicist than him.
I feel totally fucked up. I know I shouldn't give a rats ass about what the prof. thinks, but it's hard for me not to. It's that comparing-myself-with-SO problem.

Damn.
I have two exams left, and haven't actually worked much for them, because of this exam. I'd like to to them well but I highly doubt that's possible. I hate myself right now, I feel like a fuckup, like now matter how much I work its not going to be enough. And I also feel as if there's no future in physics for me. FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK.

Only when people are working in opposition of each other, rather than working together to get through a difficult situation - everyone should roll up and stop at the line at roughly the same time in roughly the same spot. When there's multiple lanes, I don't give a shit if you're turning right (or left for you leftlane drivers) you wait for your side's turn. Turn order should proceed in a clockwise fashion, with it being irrelevant if you pulled up to the line .2 seconds earlier than someone to your right. And you sure as hell don't keep edging out in anticipation of your turn.

But, of course, people are jerkasses and basically ignore all of that and just sorta lunge out there whenever they can.

Is clockwise a standard thing?

In the UK, standard traffic light order tends to be side 1 -> the side opposite to side 1 -> a random choice of one of the two remaining -> the final side, not yet chosen.

Americans have 4 way stop signs, which always work clockwise. So if a traffic light isn't working, they'd just default to that.

It is here. Sorta. Actually, it should be counter-clockwise, as traffic defaults TO the right, not from the right (That is, if you and another vehicle approach a 4 way intersection and stop at the same time, the car on the right goes first. If there is no car on the right, then the car going straight goes first if the other car is turning across the oncoming lane, otherwise they both go at the same time.) but most stop signs and such end up being clockwise for some wacky reason.


Also, we view Roundabouts as demonic voodoo and do our best to not only never build them, but when we're forced to do so we put them on roads seldom used that are then bypassed by the locals as it's "too confusing". Or we make them safe by putting stoplights on them.

So we have an uncountably large number of 4 way intersections, a surprising number of 5 way intersections, and I've heard rumors of six and seven way intersections.

Getting sick again. Same crap as just a few weeks ago. (I'm sure I panted about that then too. If not, consider this my attempt to make up for lack of panting.)

School starts monday, making it rather poorly timed (not that there is ever a really good time to feel like this).

I think a bobcat or skunk is doing something nasty outside. I can only barely smell it due to runny nose but I'm sure the stench of whatever that noxious gaseous substance is is making it worse.

The right headphone on my headphones is being really temperamental, so I will have to buy new ones. I am pretty sure I have nobody to blame but myself (I tend to hold the lead leading to the right headphone in my teeth, I guess I have damaged the wire inside doing so) and that just makes me madder about it.
Now I have to finish my work with my earphones, like some kind of chump.

Yeah, but if I don't find X unpleasant in the first place, it's not really an issue for me (broken headphones notwithstanding).
(Also you are right, I loathe the 'Y is worse than X therefore X is fine' argument, and I need to stop making it myself.)

I do this exact same thing, all the time. It's probably bad for the lead, but you pick up on cracks in the insulation. Ugh, that copper taste.

Why is it near impossible to find short grain printer paper anywhere? I found some nice silk paper at some little bookbinding merchant somewhere on the internet, but apparently it's so nice and smooth the pages stick together. Google gives me a gazillion glossary terms telling me exactly what short grain paper is, and you even find admonishments by printer manufacturers not to use it because it can cause problems, but you can't actually find the stuff so that you can laugh in the face of your printer manufacturer and use it anyway. Dangit, I want to print books :(

Oh, I see now. I'm a fiddlist (:D) also, and luckily I always have a free hand. If I didn't have the option of using one of my hands to fiddle with random stuff, I guess I'd chew a lot of chewing gum.

As for the ranty part of my post, I wish it was easier for me to wake up early. It's almost 2PM now, and I woke up half an hour earlier, and must study A LOT. But the thought of 8PM being only 6hrs apart from this moment makes me feel bad :? :(

Only one. And David Elsewhere still does it better than you.

Seriously, though. Emotionally deadening yourself does make certain things easier, but it makes other things a lot more difficult. And the things it made easier ... well, still need to be dealt with, as the emotionally dead response is to basically ignore it until it goes away. Some things don't go away, and just wait around until you ever decide that those "Feeling" things may have a use.

And by then you're so out of practice that it's harder than it would have been the first time around.

But... yeah, it does have it's attractions.

I had to navigate that a couple of times last year. Just seeing a picture of that fucker again sends shivers down my spine.


I don't know what is worse, the fact that this actually exists or that it is not the scariest junction in Britan!

Um. If there is a worse junction in Britain, wouldn't that be worse sort of by definition?
Have you given up?
