Thanks! ^^ Deleted it. : ) It's easier to put him on ignore.
Quoted to set the record straight.
I wish we could have resolved whatever your issues were.
It's a shame really.
We both love toys.
Some way, we relate.
Mash some clay.
Fly a kite.
Especially after your "."!
Seriously - drop the bone, peoples. The Canadian ex-pat has spoken.
A fuck you to strawberries for tasting so good.
I do love strawberries too! Funny thing is that my younger sister is allergic to strawberries, but I am allergic to chocolate so when we do cakes, no chocolates or strawberries allowed ):
i remember when they invented chocolate... I HATED IT.
FU goes out to my whiny neighbors. nothing bad has happened but i got an email from the landlord about smoking on this property. i dont smoke, but one of our buddies does and i guess he left some butts out. if id known i woulda picked em up but i really didnt have a clue. now, instead of crying to mama a simple knock on my door and a "hey man ya know the butts and stuff" and i woulda fixed it immediately. i know shit is weird sometimes guys but ya cant build a good relationship with your community if your first reaction is to call the cops or call landlords. just left a bad taste in my mouth is all.
is there such thing as a half FU?
FU to whoever stole our mail. We have one of those mailboxes that contains maybe twenty lock-and-key boxes for all the neighbors. Saturday morning we found that someone forced ours open, took the package key and stole my buta balloonga which was delivered Friday with whatever else was in there. I wish I had caught them in the act. I would've been like Serena Williams on their sh*t. If it's a guy, then I'll light him up...a woman--clipping her. I don't think it'll be a one-time thing.
DAMN!! That's terrible! Maybe it's someone that has been looking for a while and noticed that you were getting a lot of packages. I hope that are caught because that is straight up a felony! Did you report to USPS? I rarely get things shipped to my house these days after a threeA figure was stolen off my porch. Hope your issue is just a one time deal, otherwise, thank goodness you will be moving soon!
Yeah, I think that was the case. Expecting a delivery today that I will sign for, so I'll tell our guy to see what could be done going forward.
UPDATE: so the postmaster is aware that mail has been stolen on my block...so FU to the fact that instead of alarming the other residents, they just "stopped delivering" to the folks who get burned.
Ouch man, that is extra insulting in addition to the theft itself. FFS. How/when did mail theft of randomness (i.e. not the typical cheques and such) become such a big thing?
FU to that special kind of disgust you can only get from biting into something, nothing that odd, not-food flavour that nature has developed in your body to reject out of course, to discover a writhing mass of grossness in something that you put inside your mouth. Yes. Fuck. That. Blecch!
^ Huh, I thought that the Maggot Apple was a time-honored Welsh delicacy. Live and learn.
Little do you know (but don't get me started on - ahem - British 'cooking'), it was actually a German truffle (of the semi-sweet delight form, not the unearthed treasure variety). Occasional guests in fruit and veg, nuisance and off-putting as it might be and is, I can at least give a nature doing its thing pass to.
Fuck yous going out to Swervedriver and Quicksand for skipping Denver on their upcoming tours.. What the fuck is up with that!?
Fuck. Just fuck. I'm fucking sick of this shit.
Since I defriended my sister on Facebook, (which I did because I just didn't want anything to do with her anymore) she has been convinced I have been spreading shit about her there (which I havent, because I don't think it's anyone's business to know the details of certain private family matters.)
WELL, SHE DECIDED TO COME ONTO OL' SKULLBRAIN. In the most stalkerish fashion, she searched up my posts and found that little blurb I wrote in response to @foto junkaay 's post, screen capped it, sent it to MY FUCKING DAD, and asked HIM to get ME to stop "talking shit about her online."
See, this is how my fucking family works. Nobody has the balls to say anything to each other directly. She could have messaged me, but she didn't. Plus she invaded my last bastion of fucking sanity that I have. I don't even talk about half the shit that goes on between us here, but I use it to vent because I have no one else I can vent to without starting spinning up the suburban rumormill.
So, since you didn't have the courtesy to message me, I'll be blatantly indirect too. I know you're reading this, wondering if I listened to "daddy." Yeah, I will refrain from posting about my troubles with you for now on, simply because I don't want to upset my parents any further. But you know deep inside every damn thing I said was true. You are a user and an abuser. I have spent years helplessly trying to form some kind of friendship with you, but it's clear to me that you are someone who expects respect when you don't give any out. Nobody wants to be in a one-sided friendship, and I'm through.
Spoiler: for one just one too many serious f*&ks
I'm sorry, but fuck social media altogether, and the entire culture it has perpetrated now. I know I am going to sound like a grumpy old fossil with this one, but you know what? Tough. I am one. This type of utter BS story just makes me angry and sad for mankind. There is NO reason such an incident is not 100% preventable. It is not an accident. It is not a mistake.
Bottom line - gun culture needs to be seriously addressed in America. People need to learn to respect dangerous instruments as tools, not to be handled without training, sensibility, and awareness. Seriously, a .50 calibre? At 30cm (1 foot) away? What could you possibly view would be the outcome of such an action? And all in the name of getting more followers, simply - and I am not making this up - "because we want more viewers, we want to get famous." FFS! This 'woman' has a small child and is pregnant with another. Is it impossible to have any foresight anymore? Look, I am not saying this is by any stretch of the imagination the norm, or that she won't face consequences for these actions. But that's not the point. There's just no excuse for these things to ever happen. So fuck YouTube, fuck Facebook, fuck Instagram, fuck instant fame, just...fuck it. Argggh! Serenity now!!!
Woman shoots boyfriend in YouTube stunt
Now back to your regularly scheduled griping.
I've been learning a lot about shame as of late. It binds to our emotions and freezes us in a state that does not allow us to deal. It is very physical. There is a boardie that lives in it and baits and attacks others constantly. It is his method of thinking he is being tough in the moment by denying the shame and fear of something terrible that probably happened in his childhood.
I imagine your sister must be the same. She can't talk directly to you because she can't face her shame. So there is an indirect avoidance. A pathology to hide from the real pain by cause fake current pains that are easier and more comfortable to deal with.
That probably doesn't make it much easier but hopefully it helps you know that whatever her actions are they are not about you and come from a place of fear and pain.
These people were just improbably inept and stupid. He apparently tried it once before with a book and it stopped the bullet.
Yet he apparently did no other research, just in case (because he might die), and I would imagine that they did the "test" at a substantially different combination of distance and caliber. My wild ass guess would be that the Desert Eagle was chosen for showmanship and not practicality. (Seriously? A fucking Desert Eagle‽) I know that Mythbusters did a segment about unusual items that can be functionally bulletproof, including phonebooks.
Oh look! Here it is:
I'm really trying not to be mean, but damn. Call it "anti-social Darwinism"?
E.T.A. - @hellointerloper I am dumbfounded by your situation. My sympathy to you.
Now I consider myself pretty leftist in terms of political crap, or should I say progressive... I don't even know anymore.
But I do believe in the right to bear arms simply because not everyone has the luxury of living in a safe area, and let's face it, you don't bring a knife to a gun fight. If someone is going to break into your home, whether to rob, rape, or whatever, I think you should be able to defend yourself. They probably brought a gun themselves, so better safe than sorry.
That being said, in order to get my pistol permit, we had to undergo training, testing, a background check, everything. There were two very important rules though that had to be followed at all times, or our nice instructor would go all military sergeant on us.
1) NEVER POINT A GUN, LOADED OR UNLOADED, AT ANOTHER HUMAN BEING. DON'T EVEN LET IT FACE A PERSON IF IT'S ON A TABLE.
2) THE ONLY TIME YOU EVER PUT YOUR FINGER ON THE TRIGGER IS IF YOU INTEND TO SHOOT.
Of course, we have a country full of idiots who think they can do what ever they please with a potentially deadly weapon. A gun isn't a toy. I got my permit so if the time comes that we move out of the suburbs, I can feel safe home alone while Jon is at work and can go about doing my own work at home. If you're getting a gun for a power trip or because "omg it's so coooool" then you need a punch to the face.
Gun talk is a bad road to go down here
I just bought my first firearm not two months ago. I thought that there would be more to it, but here in OK all they do is call a Federal background check in. I literally walked in and left within an hour with my shiny new "toy". I told my Old Guard Republican neighbor that I thought the process was "insanely easy" and he started to go into a 2nd Amendment spiel. "It's just as easy as it should be. blah blah blah" Really? No training required or seriously offered before I touch a gun for the first time in my life?
My Dad has issues with guns, and would probably be upset if he knew that I now had one, but I know that he would have taught me how to use one if he were going to get me one when I was younger. I mean, it's just the bare ignorance of the technology that lead to this guy's fatal misstep! He should have known, or been taught, what your common rounds are capable of. It is just a horribly senseless death. I wish that it hadn't happened for his family's sake.
SaintOfSpinners is probably right. I'm just frustrated and sad for these people. I won't rehash it further.
fuck this thread
Next time on the Dr. Phil Show....
