    I added the name Lixx to the prayer circles, sending positive vibes for just a simple issue with a simple solution.

    +1 to Paul for bringin' it up, and the well wishes. I hadn't even seen the initial post.

    @Lixx, that's some super scary sounding stuff, dude. Total fear of the unknown, but a huge plus you were able to get your appointment bumped ASAP. Having to wait 13 days isn't ideal, but previously having to wait 24 days would've just been too much time twiddling the thumbs. Fingers crossed for the simplest, and best outcome. Please keep us updated as you can, and best of luck on the 13th!

    Best of luck to you, @Lixx. I hope this turns out to be as minor as it can be and that you recuperate quickly. Rest up and stay calm as best you can, for now.

    @Lixx Oh man, what an unfortunate turn of events, I echo others when I say I hope that it turns out to be nothing. I know it is not something that you just simply forget, but keeping busy until you find out the results will help. Just try to take it easy as well, being busy doesn't mean you have to stress yourself also. Hoping the best of outcomes!

    Thanks everyone. Yeah I've had a run of infections this past year- abscess under same left armpit in March 2016 (drained and went away- but sac not removed because they could not find it after it healed with ultrasound), peronchia (nailbed infection- which I thought was from the gym I use to attend), and cellulitis on my lip over the winter, now this.

    I try to eat somewhat decently, exercise, take a few herbal supplements like spirulina and fish oil but I'm thinking there is a systematic problem like an auto immune syndrome that is not being diagnosed here. I'm no doctor so I don't know for sure but every time I mention it they think I'm over-reacting. Maybe the dots don't connect but my whole life I've never even had to go to the doctors or hospital for anything so something is up...because my immune system is pretty fucked it seems.

    Positive vibes Chris. It is probably nothing, but with certainty it is worth getting it all checked out. Unfortunately, the healthcare system doesn't make it easy for the average schmo, but still, nothing is wasted effort or money when it comes to your health. This goes equally for all SBers, stay sensible and aware folks, life's too short to spend worrying over trivial things or ignoring messages when they arise.

    Tell me about it! I apply to loads of environmental jobs everyday but the truth is I'm still unemployed so I'm stuck with Medicaid (oh and a fuck you to that turtle McConnell & his cabal who want to take it away for people who really do need it) till I can get employed and off it.

    Trust me I don't want to be on it because despite being very helpful cost-wise no one accepts the state plans so it's a trial by fire to find anything outside your PCP's realm. So every time you get referred you have to hope the referral is in your limited network! My PCP stated my plan was difficult to work with (Aetna Better Health) so I called the PA Enrollment office and changed to Health Partners (which most of their referrals take). Now it might get hairy for me because I've started all this stuff with the lump through my current plan and as of August 1st I'm switching to another. I don't know much about insurance but I can totally seeing shit getting messy. Lets just hope everything is done before August 1st but I doubt it.

    Do not be afraid to be the squeaky wheel, Chris- I assume you are already on the list to be called in case of any cancellations- if not, get on it- but on top of that, don't hesitate to call and bug them once or even twice a week. It works. They'll sometimes find a way to get you in sooner just to stop your calls. Self-advocacy, even to the point of pushiness, is (unfortunately) kind of essential when you're dealing with care for serious health issues.

    A gigantic fuck you asshole to the scumbag who stood next to me for ten minutes listening to a wonderful street musician pluck away on his guitar while singing folk songs only to snatch the guitar and the hat full of money then jump into a car that slowed down just enough for him to get in and speed the fuck off. It all happened so fast no one even knew what was going on until it was over. Stealing everything from someone who has almost nothing is just beyond me.

    Wow, I don't even know what to say to that kind of behaviour. That is so low it's staggering. I strive to be very open-minded, non-judgmental, and fair with others, especially when you don't know their full story, but some people really make that a challenge.

    A giant Fuck You going out to my future sister in law.. Her and her husband decided to get a Goldendoodle puppy and not fucking train it AT ALL. Now the dog is 8 months old, he's huge and he's a fucking nightmare. We've been housesitting him for the past 9 fucking days and it's been complete chaos. The dog has pissed all over everything including our brand-new couch that's less than a month old, constantly jumps up on you, barks at everything that passes by and whenever you try and correct the behavior by saying "no" in a deep voice, he gets scared/nervous and pisses some more..

    In addition, we're supposed to pick up the dog's parents at the airport tonight, the kicker is they booked a flight that arrives at 3am. Thanks for being super inconsiderate and basically ruining our fucking Saturday because we have to pick you up in the middle of the fucking night.

    EDITED: I took out a bunch of extra ranting..

    @noeleaser Dogs are a lot like small children, give them an inch and they'll take a mile. Because society is so super PC anymore, people seem to never understand that being firm and disciplining doesnt mean beating the crap out of and abusing dogs or children. Just know they won't respect you or anything until you create a firm structure with consequences and show them who's boss (and this can be done psychologically). Either that or people are too lazy to care how their little monsters affect everyone around them. This is a generalized statement and not meant as a dig on her children at all. I just see it a lot- parenting is difficult but you have to create structure.

    Sounds like your future sister in law is a soul sucking piece of shit who doesn't know what parenting is and your brother is overwhelmed. Send her to rehab!

    ^ Burn the books, too, or at least cut out the bits that we now find offensive...

    I'm of the firm belief that all posts should remain in place, be they inane or profane, as they stand as a record of what happened here and, indeed, the public character of those that made 'em. As for lockdowns, well, not all of them are permanent, and they occur infrequently and for a variety of reasons. Have a skim of the last dozen posts in the thread under discussion here and let me know if you think that an enforced pause over there wasn't in the best interest of the community.

    If it wasn't for other forums leaving up posts from various asshats we'd have no way of tracking their history on the net when they show up here, and I know that searches of SB have been used to help bolster cases against other asshats that have pulled one thing or another elsewhere. I think one of the greatest losses in our migration to this new software platform, actually, is that posts by formerly banned members - from winners such as S&S88, for example - now just show up as 'GUEST'.

    Of course I'm being hyperbolic when I invoke Fahrenheit 451 in relation to your comment, @Waterbear, and of course I consider the comments that you quoted to be in the inane column of the range I applied, rather than being in any way akin to some of the many more offensive dialogues and diatribes that have been typed out here over the years, but the lot of them - speaking for myself, here - serve the future a lot better than just sweeping them under the toy cabinet.

    I didn't have a hand in the recent lockdown of the FU thread, and am in support of just merging this new one with the old, but I understand why my fellow mod did it. We take great pains, more often than many probably realize, to settle all issues through the world of PMs - or conversations, as they've been dubbed by the programmers - but that doesn't always do the trick. Sometimes, thankfully, it does! So far, so good on our new friend's tirades having quieted down, but only time will tell. For the record, with or without this here chat that we're having tonight, @Waterbear, @eckotyper's IG thread should be up and running again in the next few days.

    Again, speaking for myself, I think temporary lockdowns serve a purpose, and are never intended as a punishment for the community. We, the mods, only have so many tools at our disposal, and, when language fails, it's a pretty handy option to to have.

    TL;DR: Sometimes it's best just to leave the room for a while and let the coals cool.

    Just coming to say I agree with everything David has said. We can take different views on things, and that is why there is a team of moderators here. Just because people might think that we are acting impulsively and taking action based on whim - which, don't get me wrong, has happened in the past - does not mean that there are not constantly ongoing discussions behind the scenes to public view of matters being discussed here. Without wanting to derail the FU thread even further, that thread was rightfully locked down, as the posting in it was getting out of hand. Locking a thread does not imply permanence. It is a temporary measure to control things until cooler heads prevail or the offending parties have had a chance to make their case to the mods. In cases where the original thread was not providing anything useful to the community, it can - on rare occasion - remain locked. As to the specifics of the other FU thread in particular, in that case this new thread was started, for better or worse (a long discussion for another time) and has superseded its predecessor's place. And for the record, removing posts is never helpful, for the reasons advocated above. I would only do so in cases where it was clear that lines were crossed, offenses were made, things said that needed to be hidden from public view, etc. People should own up to what they say in any public space. We can all say stupid things at times, for a variety of reasons; no one is above this, and it is up to each of us apologise and explain things after the fact, should we want to. Anyway, that is all I am going to say on that matter. You get to know how people who enter into this forum behave. Not everyone is the same, but it is an open registration process, and as such, there will always be that potential to have individuals sign up to the board and post at free will as they care to; there is no control on that any more than there is for anyone else. An internet forum is what it is. You can see it as either and expression of social equality and free speech, or a mouthpiece for the inane or outright offensive. But sadly, you will never have the one without the other.

    I just want to say I legitimately liked the discussions on that tread before it was locked. It was a lot of people were all conversing with great points and ideas and hope we can have another thread similar to it. Well before the spam that still hasn't been explained to anyone. Oh yeah and fuck cars cause I'm bad with engines

    I look at this board much like I do a hardcore show: it gets wild, sometimes looks hostile/violent, but we're all there for a specific reason(which is generally like minded), share ideas through bands/lyrics and create dialogues on what we do/don't agree with. There are times when shit gets out of hand and security(moderators) have to take action. That being said, security removes the perpetrator(s) from the venue, not shut down the venue. Vap should flat out be banned, and the show can go on here. Perhaps my analogy is flat out dumbsounding, but it makes sense in my head(not that that's sayin' much).

    Back on track: Fuck people that talk during the film in movie theaters. Not much else needs elaborated on that one!

    Oh you know it! The last place I was living had a completely different culture - for better or worse - when it came to the movie-going experience. I am talking about people actually skyping/facetiming in the theatre, while the movie was playing. Of course I accept a certain degree of quiet banter/movie commenting between you and the person next to you, that's fine, but outright loud conversations, about things that are not even connected to the movie, across multiple seats/rows/aisles? Never. If that's what you need to do, that's completely fine, but just do everyone the courtesy of stepping out of the theatre for those few minutes when you need to do so.

    @ultrakaiju i have yet to experience anyone Skyping or FaceTiming a friend in a movie theater. What an atrocious act to force everyone around you to endure! I can definitely handle people somewhat discussing the happenings of the movie(a comment here and there), I'm guilty of that myself! Full on conversations about the movie, or otherwise, is just plain rude.

    I also can't forget people that bring children to non - child intended movies, especially newborns. I don't at all mean for that to sound insensitive to parents, but trying to a enjoy a horror/action movie, with loud sounds, explosions, gunshots, scares, intense music and a lot of screaming, is difficult when a baby/toddler is mortified by the sound, and drowning out the movie with their cries of discomfort. No fault of the infant's, of course.
