Title: Off Topic Discussion, Birthday, and Hello / Goodbye Thread
Post by: Jimi James on September 13, 2006, 11:40:39 AM
This is the place to discuss issues between two members that would otherwise throw a discussion off topic. But I am setting a few groundrules first:

This is not a flameboard! It's also not a place for two or three people to monopolize with pointless banter.

If you come here to just insult eachother, then I or the other Mods will feel free to delete your post without warning. Furthermore, if this turns into another Joe Schmo hits John Doe over the head with a baseball bat jokey battle topic we will delete your posts.

Valid reasons to post in this topic:

* You would like to go into further detail about an issue that would throw a larger topic off on a tangent.

* You wish to tell someone POLITELY, that there behavior is insulting you or bothering you in some way.

* You want to say "Hi". Newbies obviously won't know to come here first so if they post a "Hi, I'm new here" topic, that's OK.

* To say it's your birthday.

* To say you're going away for a while.

* To complain about something or make a suggestion that would not otherwise fit in the Announcements Forum.

* Asking personal questions of a member (obviously nothing THAT personal though).

* Anything else that you would like to say, but use common sense. Don't post here just to flame someone or say something utterly pointless.

If you would like to discuss something with someone here just tell that person in the body of your post to come to "Off Topic Discussion". If they don't come here, just let it go. They may not want to go into the issue any further. Drop it. Don't keep telling them to come here over and over again.

Well, I hope this helps.

Thank you.

Well, we just wrapped up a big inspection out at the base, and our shop (Ammo) was one of the best! Woohoo! Not only do I get to keep my job, with the inspection over, I can get back to normal a little bit, the last few days have been kind of hellish...

Goddammit.

Recently, I asked my parents to send me some books as I'd already exhausted the reading material that I had brought with me to school.  They did, on the 16th IIRC, and it should have gotten here last Thursday.  It hasn't.

So I ask my mom if she has the package label, and she says that it's in the recycling, but she'll look for it.  I mention that I'll be annoyed if it's lost because it took me a while to get some of those books.  And then she reveals that she stuck my CD case (which I had forgotten when I left for home) in there as well.  I then say that if it's lost, I will not be annoyed, I will be pissed--not for the loss of the music, because any music I have on CD is now in my computer, and I hardly ever play CDs anymore, but because that CD case also had important CDs, like, y'know, my Windows boot up CD.  And my motherboard's driver CD.  I also mention, since I've had nothing but good experiences with UPS and Fedex while I've had several bad ones with USPS, that we use UPS or Fedex from here on out.  And then she says "If you're going to carry on about it like this, you can wait until you get home to get anything else."  And then she signed off.

Whosajiggawha?  I made a suggestion that I meant seriously, and while I was pretty POed, it was at the USPS, not her.  So I try calling home a few minutes later--something like 12 or 13 rings later, my dad picks up and reveals that my mom said that "she wasn't talking to me right now" and to try calling again tomorrow.

So let's see, my mom didn't see any need to save the only potential source for the tracking number, though luckily it hasn't been sent to the recycling center yet, *and* because I mentioned that switching to UPS or Fedex might be a good idea, she went all pyscho on me!

I wasn't pissed of at her then, but I am now.

Worst part is, I was making serious progress on a TBW outline too, but now I'm too POed to bother with that. >:(

ARGH.

USPS sucks.

Even with their so called tracking number, it will show that it was delivered.

However, as I've learned through trials and investigation, USPS website will show that it was delivered to the local Post Office, and will say it was delivered to the actual address it was intended to go to.

Having it go from the local Post Office to the actual delivery address is yet another step, and it won't show up in their tracking system.

You call them, give them the tracking number, and they say simply "It was delivered."

 ::)

With important stuff, use FedEx. or even the UPS.

USPS is good for delivering your mail, but that is about it.

They worth shit for packages and parcels.

Can you tell your mom it was at USPS you were pissed and not her?
Title: Re: Off Topic Discussion, Birthday, and Hello / Goodbye Thread
Post by: starhawk on September 26, 2006, 07:59:57 PM
UPS? They drive the truck over it before they give it to you. Standard policy. Trust me. I used to be on a geek forum ([H]ard|Forum to be exact) and every couple weeks someone would post a picture of what once was a valuable peice of equipment until USPS or UPS ruined it. Never heard a thing about FedEx doing that, though...

And a friend of mine on there (don't recall his name; it's been a while) learned the hard way why you don't ship RAM through the USPS-- they x-ray absolutely everything and it fried the RAM stick. He lost money on that, too, IIRC.

As for your mother, Manty, I have had similar experiences with my parents. What I think happened (although I'm not her so I cannot be certain) is that she took it personally and/or feels guilty about it and got angry as a result. What works for me (usually) when dealing with such things is to explain as politely as possible that there was a misunderstanding, apologize for it, and explain what one really meant in the most clear of terms. I know it doesn't feel good to say that you're at fault when you aren't, but believe me it works wonders. I can't count how many scrapes that's fixed with my parents. The important thing is to reestablish communication with her and to be honest on both ends.

Hope that helps, and good luck to ye.

Don't tell that to me!  Tell that to her!

Lord knows my parents are useless with e-mail. If my very life depended on one of them sending (or even getting) an e-mail, I'd be dead. Seriously.

 :-\

Not sure if your mom is e-mail savvy, but you can FWD my statement to her, of course. Or relate my message to her verbally.

Oh come on.  She was trying to do you a favor and all she got out of it was you ranting at her.  Even if you didn't directly accuse her of anything, it doesn't sound like it was a conversation she should be happy about.

I have returned.  I ended up being gone longer then expected and as usual, fate has seen fit to dump on me again.  As it turns out, I have hyperthyroidism, which means the thyroid gland is working overtime and is producing too much thyroid hormone.  It explains why I've been so tired lately as it causes the muscles, including the heart, to work more then they need to. 

The good news is that it's treatable.  They'll likely deaden the gland and I'll have to take synthetic thyroid hormone from now on.  It's also good that they caught it now since it would have likely caused my heart to fail during the transplant operation. 

The bad news is that it temporarily disqualifies me for a liver transplant.  Until they can get it under control, which could take a few months, I'm sort of stalled or ineligible for a transplant.  So it's good and bad, and means more waiting.  AHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Anyway, it's good to see that the move to the new forum finshed ok.

Honestly, I'm glad that you're disqualified now.  (...not quite what I mean...)  Imagine if you were qualified and no one had ever noticed the problem?  Or if you were still qualified and your "time" came up while you still had this problem?

That said...wow.  You really are God's toxic dumping ground aren't you?  What did you do to piss off the Almighty today? :P

It’s good to see you’re back. I didn’t know you had cirrhosis; I hope you will be able to obtain a transplant soon.

Luckily, depending on the cause, it’s easy to “cure” hyperthyroidism by causing hypothyroidism. And levothyroxine is relatively cheap (available in generic form), simple to take, and really has no side effects (provided it’s dosed properly).

Well, our thoughts are with you.

I have returned.  I ended up being gone longer then expected and as usual, fate has seen fit to dump on me again.  As it turns out, I have hyperthyroidism, which means the thyroid gland is working overtime and is producing too much thyroid hormone.  It explains why I've been so tired lately as it causes the muscles, including the heart, to work more then they need to. 

The good news is that it's treatable.  They'll likely deaden the gland and I'll have to take synthetic thyroid hormone from now on.  It's also good that they caught it now since it would have likely caused my heart to fail during the transplant operation. 

The bad news is that it temporarily disqualifies me for a liver transplant.  Until they can get it under control, which could take a few months, I'm sort of stalled or ineligible for a transplant.  So it's good and bad, and means more waiting.  AHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Anyway, it's good to see that the move to the new forum finshed ok.

Hugs!  Glad to have you back Jimi.  You should be able to get that thyroid issue under control fairly easily, as long as you're good about taking the meds.  Take care of yourself!

He probably pissed God off by bringing Flagg all those babies to eat.  See Jimi I told ya Karma was gonna get back at you for that one Jimi.

Seriously welcome back and lets hope things go better for ya soon.

Welcome back Jimi! Manti's right, it's good they found this now, rather than during the operation. Hope your gland settles down fast, and you can get back on the list. Good to have you back! ;D

Thanks everyone.  I agree that it'll probably prove to be worth it in the long run, but it's aggravating to have yet another hurdle thrown down in my path.  Just once I'd like to hear the doctors say, “oh, that's our bad, there's no problem after all.  In fact it's going to be easier then we thought.”  Not with my luck though.  Oh, well.  Frak it.  Bring it on as I always say.  I should have died half a dozen times over so pile it on as deep as it'll go and I'll beat it like I've beaten everything else.

To break in neo-SCN I thought it best for a long overdue chapter of....

SCN Secrets

Bond James Bond - Nearly lost his job as a science teacher by telling his students that life was created when Jack Bauer used a time machine to go back in time and masturbated into the primordial soup.  He has since sent this story idea to the producers of "24" but has yet to receive a response.

Maple Dog - Has many Demons. . . polite demons that would open the door for a lady carrying too many parcels, but demons nonetheless!"

Darmok - Hasn't been able to get a date for nearly a year now because Kestra has been taking his potential girlfriends aside for a "quiet chat"  :-X

Flagg - Spend his free time sitting outside in a lawnchair pretending to crush people's heads with his thumb and forefinger.

Razor - His grandfather was....Walt Disney.

Bernd - Despite his clever ruse pretending to be disgusted by its architecture actually lives here...

So I got a co-op job offer from Honeywell Aerospace (basically a co-op is I work there for a semester, then go to school for a semester, and alternate like that). I'm not sure if I want to take it though. I would be helping design navigational controls for airplanes right now, which isn't exactly what I want to do. But after graduation, they said it's easy to move between divisions in the company, so I could work with Space stuff, which is what I want to do.

It's the Valuable experience one - that's the difference between an internship and a Co-op.  While I was Co-oping at Copeland, I was participation in the design and testing of the next generation Midsized AC compressor (among other things).  I don't know the atmosphere at Honeywell, but if it's anything like Copeland, he'll enjoy it.

Apparently it's a nice place to work. My RA last year co-oped there and he said he enjoyed the atmosphere. Plus it's in Clearwater, Florida, and that doesn't hurt. It doesn't pay as much as some co-ops (for instance, one of my friends just got an offer from Exxon Mobile and she is getting $27.50 an hour), but they pay for housing and gas, so it isn't a bad deal.

In other words, cool stuff.

I'm trying desperately to go *completely* out of my element and design a space shuttle at the moment... somewhat bass ackwards-ly, since I designed the outside first and have little idea where all the stuff will go. But it IS fun. If you want, I'll post what I've got so far (it's not much).

I'm doing this mainly because I'm bound and determined to get into space under my own power someday. I don't much care how I do it, but I'm gonna d*** well do it. Or die trying...

Congratulations. Definitely take the job unless you're worried about it delaying your studies for too long. Regardless of whether this is exactly what you want to do or not the extra experience on your resume will go a long way in the future, even if you don't ultimately end up at Honeywell in a more permanent position later. Plus, if you don't like it at worst you're only stuck with one semester of it.

Good luck with that.

I was on my way to Jimmy Johns and the guy comes up and starts talking to me (he's obviously drunk). He goes on about he got thrown out of a club or something, and was like "hey man, give me some cash so i can buy another 40." And I said "I dont have any cash on me man." That was a lie, but fuck him, I'm not giving him money for alcohol. So he said, "This is all the money i have," reached in his pocket, pulled out a knife. Shit... I said "fuck man, I don't have any cash on me." Luckily there was this group of 2 guys and 2 girls walking down the street probably 20 yards away. The guy thought better of it and said "this aint for you" and just walked away. So I went and got a Turkey Tom from Jimmy Johns.

Well, when I’m hungry or in the mood for something sweet, it’s nice to have a fat-free, calorie-free substitute that actually tastes good. Ditto for when I have people over—I can have sip on something without having to take in calories that I really don’t want, but I don’t have to keep myself aloof by avoiding all snacks/beverages.

Of course, I had Taco Bell for dinner yesterday. Love those hard-shell taco supremes!

Post by: Greg on October 27, 2006, 01:49:24 AM
God, yesterday sucked. Awake at 6:15am, left the house by 6:45 in the pouring rain and wind to get the bus to work. The bus is freezing, it's only slightly warmer than being outside and I won't get to work for an hour. I get to work, it's as boring as ever. Over the day, I keep hearing weather reports about flooding on roads nearby, but it hasn't affected me until just after lunch, when I hear a road which is CRUCIAL for me getting home (i.e. the only way around takes about 5 years and a fucking blimp) is flooded and has been closed. Oh shit.

Eventually I hear it's still flooded, but one lane is open and a mate from work gives me a lift home, no problems. Five minutes after getting home, the power cuts out. For 7-8 bloody hours. I have to pack a bunch of stuff and go sleep at my  uncles house (which still has power yet he lives only 5 minutes walking distance away, and that's not even in a straight line). I hate sleeping in a bed other than my own, nevermind in a sleeping bag on the floor on my uncles house, because only two rooms have had the heating on because until then he'd had no reason to heat them.

I then have to wake up at 6 the next day, only this time I head to bus stop and stand there for around half an hour waiting for a bus that doesn't turn up. While this means I don't have to go to work and thats always awesome, I lost all feeling in a couple of my toes waiting for that damn bus. Thankfully I went home and found the power was back and the heating had been on for a while, cause the house was roasting.

Now I can feel my toes again and I have the house to myself, this time with power, I looking forward to the rest of the day. But getting to this point sucked ass.

Eh, just over an hour and twenty minutes, so about 10-minute miles. I’m a slow runner—I run for cardiovascular (aerobic) fitness, not speed. I suppose on these long runs it’s more of a jog, but that doesn’t sound as cool as calling it a run.

Post by: Rusty on October 29, 2006, 09:42:23 PM
10-minute miles are a pretty good standard; if you can top it then power to you, but I'm the same - I'm not a marathon runner by any means - if I can jog 5 klicks in half an hour I call it a good jog, but I would just die in the arse if I tried to go faster or longer than that really. I'm deadly over 200m, but I'm just long-legged and I go all out for it. If I could do 8 miles without stopping, at whatever jogging speed, I'd want for nothing more!
Title: Re: Off Topic Discussion, Birthday, and Hello / Goodbye Thread
Post by: Darmok on October 29, 2006, 09:56:09 PM
I ran a 15K race (9.3 miles) in March I think, but it was pretty slow; I finished near the end. (Like I said, it’s for cardiovascular fitness, not speed—I wanted to see if I could do it.) I was in better shape when I was in med school. I ran in the Shamrock Shuffle for a couple years; it’s an 8-kilometer race (just under 5 miles). I was definitely faster then—I think that I finished in under 8-minute miles one year. It was quite unexpected; I’d just been hoping to finish it in under an hour. Now, though, the goal is mainly to try to stay in shape. I would love to run a half-marathon one of these days, but I don’t think I ever could.

It's often called tiger-marching, or going on a tiger-prowl.

High-tempo, high-speed bushwalks (or hiking) through rugged or challenging terrain. My cousin David lives in the Blue Mountains of NSW and every so often he'll go for 50-60kms in about 4-5 hours, up steep tracks and down again, across features and back, without stop. Mind you he is built like a Nepalese Ghurka, but he's a freak anyway. Sometimes when he wants to build up his soles, he will do shorter ones barefooted. It really sounds like nothing to merely explain it in words, but I was impressed.

I did a small one with him end of 2002, and I was knackered. I just could not keep up. I now know what side of my family got the Energiser Battery genes...

Nonsense!  I'm religious and I get along fine with most of the people here (at least on my part).  It's more about being open minded, tolerant, backing up your statements, and like you mentioned, good conversation.  Feel free to stick to the other topics though if you're more comfortable speaking about non-religious issues.

I ran a 15K race (9.3 miles) in March I think, but it was pretty slow; I finished near the end. (Like I said, it’s for cardiovascular fitness, not speed—I wanted to see if I could do it.) I was in better shape when I was in med school. I ran in the Shamrock Shuffle for a couple years; it’s an 8-kilometer race (just under 5 miles). I was definitely faster then—I think that I finished in under 8-minute miles one year. It was quite unexpected; I’d just been hoping to finish it in under an hour. Now, though, the goal is mainly to try to stay in shape. I would love to run a half-marathon one of these days, but I don’t think I ever could.

Well your definetly in much better shape than me thats for sure.

^Kes is right. We don't mind if you're religious, as long as you don't keep bringing it up in an annoying matter. Welcome  :)

I agree with Kestra and da Vinci. I, too, am religious, but have not had any difficulty interacting with other members. What you may perceive as anti-religious hostility is probably frustration by many over the improper role religion has been playing in politics and science, without regard to others’ beliefs. I speak out against this because I feel that those people give religion a bad name and ruin it for the rest of us. Be respectful of others and there shouldn’t be any problem.

Well your definetly in much better shape than me thats for sure.

Well, as I was discussing with Manty over IM, I’m a doctor, so I feel I should try to be in good shape. Not only because I’m all too aware of the health benefits of good cardiovascular fitness, but also because it’d be hypocritical of me to encourage my patients to pursue more healthful lifestyles while not attempting such a lifestyle myself. I’m a firm believe in leading by example—in all areas of life.

As we’ve said, it is not religion itself; however, your approach to religion may cause you difficulty.

Take, for example, your signature: “God created the world, the world tried to kill God, God tried to save the world from itself, the world killed itself... God sighed.” I am speaking only for myself here, but I find it to be on the offensive side.

For those who are not religious or do not share your religious views, it comes across as self-righteous, as if you are right and the rest of the world is wrong. Also, it pushes your religious view a bit strongly; there is of course considerable evidence that God did not (directly) create Earth and there are many (myself included) who accept the standard astronomical theories of Earth’s formation by coalescence out of the solar nebula. Whether you do or not is up to you, but it’s not the sort of thing one should be pushing in his signature. Others may wonder, too, why you think God would create a self-destructive world.

For those who are religious, there are problems as well. Most notably, in my religion, God is omnipotent and is not powerless to effect change.

You’re pushing a lot in that signature, and it may turn people off to you. Just my three or four cents.

Chinese slow to embrace “free hugs” campaign (http://www.cnn.com/2006/WORLD/asiapcf/10/30/china.hugs.reut/index.html)

BEIJING, China (Reuters) — The Chinese appear not to have warmed to a “free hugs” campaign aimed at cheering up strangers by hugging them on the street, with some huggers even being hauled away by police for questioning, media said on Monday.

The campaign hit the streets of Beijing, Changsha and Xi’an over the weekend, with participants opening their arms to embrace passers-by and brandishing cards saying “free hugs,” “care from strangers,” “refuse to be apathetic,” the Beijing News said.

Post by: fowlerbryan on November 08, 2006, 06:40:49 PM
Yesterday and today have got to be the two shittiest days for me in quite a while.

One, work is sucking a$$, I have to go to do some training in Charleston with a new troop, 1 I don't want to go there, 2 - I don't want to go with the new troop (she's kind of annoying). So I'm already really down about that yesterday. About 0930, I get a voice mail from my dad. My grand-father passed away about 45 minutes prior to that. I go in to tell my boss, and he tells me that his dad is really bad off and may pass at any time. I rushed to my mom and dads, and mom is really distraught. Just trying to get a plane ticket for her, trying to get everything straight for her to go, it was very hard to get everything done for her, and see her being so upset. BTW - did I mention that yesterday was my dad's birthday?

Well, got up and went to work this morning, having to drive down to Hattiesburg. My boss called in, he's getting work done on his truck in case he has to go take care of his mom and all the paperwork. So, I'm getting ready to go down, getting some paperwork finished up, and my bosses boss (chief) calls me. He tells me that I can't leave because there is a flare mission going on, and we need to stay for that. Then he tells me that it'll be any minute. Two hours later, I get in touch with some people and they tell me that they are ready for us to come out. So we're sitting in the front of the A/C and waiting. After sitting there for about 30 min, I go back to the office and call again. They tell me to sit tight and wait, they'll let us know. So I call chief again, and let him know. Well, about an hour later, they decide that they don't need us at all. Now please realize that I'm already kind of depressed because of my grand-dad. I was hoping to be doing something, driving, or just doing something, and not just sitting around waiting. Anyway, we finally get on the road (about three hours late) and get down to Camp Shelby. Right before we get to where we work, my boss calls. His father passed away just a little while before that. Now, my boss and I are kind of close, we've been the two people in our office for the longest time, and we've just always had to deal with each other, so we've become good friends as well. So it really sucks.

Tomorrow, my mom will be getting on a flight to California, and my dad is thinking about flying out to my grand-dad's funeral. I'm really bummed because I won't be able to go, and while I don't want to go to a funeral, I'd like to go and be there for my family. Anyway, hell, I dunno what I'm really trying to say, other than it's just been a couple of shitty days, and I'm really tired and bummed out.

I'll tell you all one thing about neo-SCN the group breakfast that Kestra set up can be a bit awkward particularly with my strange table habits.

*Razor, Darmok, Xero, Kestra, and CX are sitting at the SCN table eating breakfast Razor is drinking coffee and reading a newspaper.  Manty comes in rubbing his chin.

Manty: Dammit I cut myself while shaving.

Darmok: I recommend using a styptic pencil.

Razor: Here Manty Ive got one.

*Razor reaches into his shirt pocket and pulls out a pencil*

Why are you carrying a styptic pencil? It’s practically your nemesis! Since, well, you are a razor, after all…

Razor always carries a gun with silver bullets in case of werewolves, a cross and holy water in case of vampires, and a picture of Flagg in case of Republicans. Just like the Scouts, he's always prepared.

There's an old one of a woman giving a horse oral sex.

Weird one...and there were men standing  standing around her holding rifles.

Yep.

Rifles.

The theory was (from others who watched it) that they were ready to shoot the horse if it got violent.

And when the horse finally ejaculated...

Well...

Imagine a gallon of milk being poured all across a female's face.

Yep.

Well I'm off, into the great wide yonder.  Ok, so really I'm just going to stay with my aunt who lives near the hospital where my transplant doctors work...because they tell me the surgery could be any day now, particularly since the thyroid trouble is under control.  So I won't be on-line for a while, hopefully a long while and when I get back here's hoping I'm healthier then when I left.  In the off chance that something goes a foul,  I want everyone to know that's its been a blast getting to know the people I got to know.  I couldn't have asked for a better group of people to spend my free time with and in the end, whether you realize it or not, you helped me keep my sanity.

That's about all I have to say, except for maybe the one thing I've learned during this whole thing.  When you find that one person you really care about, I mean the type of feelings that can hold you down and lift you up...don't wast time.  Tell the person how you feel about them as soon as you figure it out, the very next time you see them, and as many times as you can.  Because if you wait too long... and it'll happen, you'll think that there will be all the time in the world, but there's not...you might miss your chance.  And really, the only thing I've learned is that you'll regret it for the rest of our days.

Well I'm off, into the great wide yonder.  Ok, so really I'm just going to stay with my aunt who lives near the hospital where my transplant doctors work...because they tell me the surgery could be any day now, particularly since the thyroid trouble is under control.  So I won't be on-line for a while, hopefully a long while and when I get back here's hoping I'm healthier then when I left.  In the off chance that something goes a foul,  I want everyone to know that's its been a blast getting to know the people I got to know.  I couldn't have asked for a better group of people to spend my free time with and in the end, whether you realize it or not, you helped me keep my sanity.

That's about all I have to say, except for maybe the one thing I've learned during this whole thing.  When you find that one person you really care about, I mean the type of feelings that can hold you down and lift you up...don't wast time.  Tell the person how you feel about them as soon as you figure it out, the very next time you see them, and as many times as you can.  Because if you wait too long... and it'll happen, you'll think that there will be all the time in the world, but there's not...you might miss your chance.  And really, the only thing I've learned is that you'll regret it for the rest of our days.

Well, I guess that's it.  I'll catch you all on the flip side.  Now get busy living, or get busy dieing.

Jimi James ;D


Take care, Jimi. And come back to us.   *sends prayer to God to watch over Jimi and keep him safe.*

Yep I hope Jimi gets better soon and comes back.  I'd like to go on another deep sea fishing trip with him, CX, and Kestra.

CX: Ugggh please don't remind me of the last one.

I thought we all had fun on that one?

Kestra: We did but your morbid sensabilities got the better of you.

*We see Jimi, Razor, CX and Kestra on a boat out at sea.*

Jimi: Cool I got a Tuna on the line what about you guys?

Kestra and CX: Nothing yet.

Razor: Just these things.

*Razor holds up his line to reveal several dead and gutted snorks caught on his line.  Jimi's eyes bulge, and Kestra presses her hand to her mouth, CX looks uneasy*.

CX: Umm...what are you gonna do with those? :-X

Razor: Cut em up and use them for bait.  I might catch something bigger.

And boy did I.

*Razor holds up a framed photo of him posing with a dead mermaid that looks suspiciously like Arielle hanging from a fish hook.*

This was really the 23 of October 2006 but it took me this long to bring it back up.

Since now I have only told two people, those I know I can truly talk to.

On the night of that day I tried to kill my self, with a few dozen  or more heavy medications. I still can’t figure out the reason for it, I can’t justify to my self about trying it. But obviously I failed to do so…

I still can’t figure it out, I also originally thought why tell any one, who would care eh? And before some one else says it, I have already have talked to “some one” but they were no help.

My only thought to it, is that I can do it again.

I know something similar to what you mean... I'd rather not say why but I know what you mean... go to a therapist, go find someone who understands, hell, if you think I can help, pm me and I'll give you my email and we can talk that way. Just understand that the possibility of you being better off dead is infinitesimally small.

Going offline for Thanksgiving. Will be back around for sure on Monday, but I will make attempts to check in before then. ESF, I will also have sporadic email access :-\ There's only one computer in my house hooked up to the Intarwebs, and Mother needs it most of the time for her solo law practice. I will be able to check email on my phone, but I cannot reply to anything -- it's not like a Treo or Blackberry or anything, so typing out anything other than phone numbers is immensely difficult :-X

I will do my best, as I said, to check in while I'm "away" but I don't know when or if I will be able to do so.

OK so I went to work out yesterday and was listening to last week’s Nature podcast while lifting (yes, I know I’m weird). The host (Chris Smith) interviews several of the scientists who published articles that week—he’s a bit lighthearted; it’s intended for laypeople for the most part. Anyway at the beginning, they briefly mention each of the stories they’ll cover. I started doing a set and heard this:

Quote from: [url=http://www.nature.com/
nature.com[/url]]
Nature Podcast 16 November 2006 (http://www.nature.com/nature/podcast/v444/n7117/nature-2006-11-16.html)

Chris Smith: This week, new hope for muscular dystrophy, thanks to a breakthrough by scientists in Italy.

Giulio Cossu: We treated dogs that are affected by muscular dystrophy by injection of donor stem cell and could find they recover motility in this animal.

Chris Smith: Researchers have also pinpointed a way to heal a broken heart.

Paul Riley: The fact we’ve identified can actually promote the movement of cells from the outer layer of the adult heart into the muscle of the heart to form new blood vessels and repair damage from heart disease.

Chris Smith: And a milestone is reached in sequencing the Neanderthal genome, one million genetic letters to far.

Ed Green: This is just a first step in our ultimate goal of cloning Neanderthal and making a Neanderthal army.

(continued) (http://www.nature.com/nature/podcast/v444/n7117/nature-2006-11-16.html)

He said in such perfect deadpan, I burst out laughing. Unfortunately, this caused me to be unable to complete my set, and also caused everyone in the area to turn and look at me. And since the guys there are all much stronger than I, I try to avoid drawing attention to myself. It was very embarrassing.

Oh well, it was quite amusing, and I probably amused the other people as well.

Personally though, I believe he's an alcoholic, and that's why he was put in the hospital, cause you don't go 2 weeks without a drug test.

Razor - Also eats babies but in a different way from Flagg.  Flagg swallows babies whole...Razor puts them in a blender, purees and drinks them in a scrumptious baby smoothie yum  :P.

Bond James Bond - Similar to Mel Gibson, Mr. Bond also went on a drunken bender after being arrested in Malibu for a DUI.  Though in Bond's case his hate-filled tirade was directed at clowns claiming a worldwide clown conspiracy. Though unfortunately the arresting officer whom he called "sugartits" was male (though in fairness to Bond the guy did have enormous manboobs).

Steph and Chem - Were the inspiration for Simon and Hecubus from "The Kids in the Hall"

Xero - Once called in a bomb threat to the special Olympics.

Kestra - Despite being so young has gone through 5 husbands.. Ken, Johnny, Joe, Dr. Colossus, and Steve Austin.

Kestra: Its true Ive lived a sordid life.

*The forum begins rumbling*

Razor: What the fuck is going on!? :o

*A man in army fatigues burst through SCN's front door and grabs Kestra*.

Joe: Kestra, please, I must have you back.  Just come for a ride with me in my Mobile Command Unit.

Kestra: Joe, I told you, it's over.  Now please release me from your Kung-Fu Grip.

Kids in the Hall used to be on Channel Four fairly late at night (after twelve as I recall) back in the 90's.  I thought it was quite funny, if a little bit odd in places (still chuckle a bit when I think of those two hunters going after business suits after wiping out all the beavers).

I made a video to show what winter looks like in Peterborough Ontario. Be warned it's just over 12 MB
http://media.putfile.com/PC050043 (http://media.putfile.com/PC050043)
That's 3 days of snow fall. When I was a kid, three days of snow would have meant almost a foot of snow.


got almost 2 feet here, better then last year. Was still warm her last year

and cool vid eh  :D

You know what I just realized? Yesterday was the 89th anniversary of the Halifax Explosion, that killed 2,000 people, leveled 2 square kilometers of the city and was heard 360km away.

If it wasn't for Hobbes making a thread about Pearl Harbor, I probably would have forgotten.

Hey guys; back after a bludge of an exercise on some random airfield on the outskirts of some two-bit hick town. [music]Deliverance Banjo[/music] Was pretty good; got paid a bonus of 470 bucks for doing half a days work each day for five days, then sat back watching DVDs and drinking cold Crownies. Got a tan too.

Glad to be back though. Cheers.

I just got a letter from my sister about what happened to my nephew, and yes I said letter, my sister doesn't like to use the phone for some reason. It turns out my nephew Joel is bi-polar.
Title: Re: Off Topic Discussion, Birthday, and Hello / Goodbye Thread
Post by: starhawk on December 08, 2006, 09:50:09 AM
Ah yes phone phobia. I'm quite familiar with that.

What kind of bipolar?

For those who don't know:
Bipolar I - stereotypical bipolar; alternates somewhat randomly between mania and depression. Some events can trigger manic or depressive episodes.
Bipolar II - similar to Bipolar I, but more depressive than manic IIRC. I'm not terribly sure about this one myself.
Bipolar III (classified as Bipolar NOS) - bipolar mixed states; combines elements of both mania and depression into one episode; sometimes allows for hypomanic or hypodepressive states, but not "full-on" mania or depression.
Bipolar IV (also classified as Bipolar NOS) - anger/rage brought on by just about anything. I had a stepmother for a while (took 2 years for my father to realize she was psycho and divorce her) who I rather suspect was an undiagnosed Type IV bipolar.

Type III and Type IV bipolar do exist but are not officially recognized (yet) by the DSM. The current DSM, the DSM IV TR, classifies both as Bipolar NOS, which means Bipolar Not Otherwise Specified.

I just found out my nephew bought a $45,000 car, a $3000 computer. Yesterday my sister got a phone call from a real estate agent, apperently, Joel but in a bid for a  $2 million cottage. He only made $10 an hour.

EDIT: just realized I typed "$6000 computer" when it should say $3000

Well, I've decided my time here at SCN has come to an end. Over the last month, I've had neither the time nor the energy for this board, or the few other boards I frequent, due to a few different causes. We used to have a nice steady influx of new members with new ideas, but lately I've felt that too many people around here have gotten a lot least tolerant and suspicious of new members. I have no direct proof of this, but it is a feeling I can not shake. This feeling coupled with my taking on two jobs now leaving me little free time, have added up to my decision to leave. I may still drop in occasionally to see how things are going, but I will no longer be a regular poster of any description, though I ask the Admin team not to delete my account in case I ever feel like coming back on a more regular period. I wish you all the very best and share your positive hopes for the future of Star Trek. So long.

I disagree with your reasoning; we've actually had more new contributing members in our short time here than we ever had in an equivalent period on the old board, and I think the only new people who have received a hard time are spambots (which aren't even people anyway), trolls, and one guy who declared that he was disappointed in everyone and withdrawing his account because some people disagreed with him in one topic.

I'm sorry to see you go, but I don't think that was a very fair assessment of the board to leave on. But whatever.

Goodbye and good luck, and you're always welcome back here.

Bond: But you didn't what I was going to say!
Timothy: That doesn't matter.  Do you guys have any idea how long it too me to clean out my Sky Clipper after the mess that Chem and Steph & Liz and Brian made?!?!?
Kestra: Sky Clipper?
Razor: [Leaning into Kestra] It's his really fast plane
Bond: How did you know that I wanted to use your plane?
Timothy: [pulling his paper back up] Your remark last year about doing this, that is celebrate all timezones New Years, every year, and the fact that Moonie's ISD is down, Steph locked her Tardis, Razor's Puddlejumper isn't big enough, and Liz doesn't let anyone on the Gambler.

So something weird happened to me when I was doing laundry today. I paired my socks and put them in the drawer; as usual, there were a couple unpaired ones and I just stuck them in the front of the drawer with the other unpaired ones.

Except there were only two prior unpaired ones, and they matched the ones from today.

So at the moment, I have no unpaired socks, and I’m not sure what to do. I feel like the fabric of the universe should explode, or at least unravel a bit. Though I haven’t observed any unusual effects.

—Just don’t travel faster than warp 5 too near my house, OK?

I have a question for the administrators.

Would it be okay for me to post the opening chapter of my fantasy book in this comm in order to get some feedback?

I ask because I've posted it in a few other comms, and no-one seems to be saying anything, and I'm looking for genuine honest feedback on the project. And the folks here are pretty opinionated (in a good way), so I'm reckoning at least I'll get something for my trouble ;)

If you'd rather I didn't, it's okay and thanks for your time.

Hey guys, sorry I haven't been posting much!  Been busy at work and I just recently came back from a trip to India, specifically Delhi (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Delhi).  I went with my mother and my boyfriend and we did a lot of shopping, both for my sister's wedding in August and then also decorative items I can use for my business.  We got a lot of stares from walking around with Dan, but he handled everything pretty well.  Usually we stay with family but this time we stayed in a hotel and the doorman loved us.  He did this crazy salute when we left and lingered by our car longer than even our family did!

India has so much variety, we wanted Dan to do a little sightseeing but didn't want to go to the Taj Mahal because that's actually rather boring compared to some places.  So we took a side trip to Jaipur (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jaipur), a city in Rajasthan (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rajasthan).  It's a desert like region so there were a lot of camels (and elephants, and monkeys, and other miscellaneous animals).  We also saw a fantastic temple in Delhi called Akshardham (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Akshardham_%28Delhi%29).  Couldn't take any pictures there but if you go to the website (http://www.akshardham.com/photogallery/monument/index.htm) you can see how gorgeous it is.  The weather was perfect the whole time, around the 60s or 70s.  It was so funny because it's winter for them, and people were talking about how it was so cold they needed to wear two sweaters.  It's like people who live in California complaining about how cold it is. :P

Anyway, here (http://picasaweb.google.com/Kestra.Miral) are some pictures from the trip.  It's not a whole lot, but you can get the basic idea.  Enjoy!

Once again refering to Dan...Lucky bastard!

Seriously that is very cool.  I wish I could go to some place exotic like India.  Boy Dan must have felt like a fish out of water while roaming with you guys.

Hey quick question...were there white guys working at the convenience stores over there? ??? ;)

I have a question for the administrators.

Would it be okay for me to post the opening chapter of my fantasy book in this comm in order to get some feedback?

I ask because I've posted it in a few other comms, and no-one seems to be saying anything, and I'm looking for genuine honest feedback on the project. And the folks here are pretty opinionated (in a good way), so I'm reckoning at least I'll get something for my trouble ;)

If you'd rather I didn't, it's okay and thanks for your time.

Sorry, I missed this. By all means, post it in the "Creative Writing Forum." :)

I have returned…better, stronger, faster…ok so two out of three isn’t bad.  So I took some time off, which it turned out I really needed more then I realized.  Some major news though…now what was it.  It’s right there on the tip of my tongue, but what was it. 

Lifts up his shirt to look at the roughly 15 inch long scar across his abdomen.

Oh yeah, I went ahead and took care of that whole liver transplant thing.  That’s right.  On Tuesday November 28, at about fifteen minutes after noon, I finally got the call.  They found a liver and after waiting for most of Tuesday and into Wednesday morning, I went under the knife. 

The surgery went better then my wildest dreams.  I won’t go into the exact details right this minute (I plan on sharing more later, even pictures!) but needless to say I’m already doing better now then I was before the surgery. 

I can’t begin to explain how it feels.  I’ve been sick for so long that for nearly seven years that’s all I knew.  But all of that is gone now.  Sure there are new things that I have to worry about, for example in order to avoid rejection of the new liver, my immune system is being completely suppressed.  I therefore can’t be around large crowds, anyone with a cold, or anyone (particularly children) that has been vaccinated with a live virus.  Doing so could quite literally kill me.  So there’s that to consider, but I think it’s a small price to pay for the amazing gift I have been given.

And it is a gift, beyond anything I could have ever asked for.  This is already the most amazing Christmas ever.

But I’m a amazed at how well the recovery is going.  There’s almost no pain, if you can believe that, though the right side of my lower back stays sore most of the day, but that’s hardly slowing me down.
     
I’m finding that I’m quite literally a new person.  Sure the good old Jimi James you all came to know and love is still here, but I can already notice other changes.  I’m found my sense of humor again, which I had lost some time ago and over this past year, I was beginning to think would never return.  But when I came out of the surgery and started to hear how well it had gone, sue enough there it was. 

I’ve had several people comment already that they can see the changes in my attitude and personality, that I seem happy and even more outgoing and apt to converse.

Well I could ramble on here all day about my turn of good fortune, so I’ll end by saying, that looking back after my last post and not to get too mushy, but I was greatly appreciative of everyone’s well wishes.

I’ve actually got some Loratab left that they prescribed after the surgery.  I’ve only taken about four of them so their's nearly a whole bottle left, but you all can’t have them, cause that’s not how I roll.  As for the ‘tax’…I just mailed it out to you Flagg.  I’m sure it won’t be long, so go wait patiently for the mailman to arrive.  Go on, we’ll wait till you get back.   :D

Jimi, I’m glad everything worked out well, and congratulations on the new liver. Liver transplants are complex operations—I’m working in the Intensive Care Unit these days and we get a lot of post-operative liver transplant patients. I, too, have noticed that their pain medicine requirements are usually quite low.

Incidentally, I apologize for my absence from SCN recently (for those who care about such things)—my hospital work has gotten busier and it’s hard to find time to do everything. Also, I’ve begun working on a weblog where I can post topics that are too nerdy even for people here, so some of my time has been taken up there.

Hope you all are doing well and staying warm (or cool, Rusty).

Jimi, you got a new liver? That's odd I woke up and found I was missing mine. Coincidence?

Haha…if you were missing yours, you wouldn’t wake up… ;D

You can even tell the difference in your attitude just by the change in your style of posting. It's so much more enthusiastic and positive now.

Lets see we've got...

-A stripper/cheerleader kidnapping ghoul. (moi)
-A guy with a literal liberal hate machine parked in his garage. (Flagg)
-A Canadian Transformers fan. (Xero)
-A bubbly Indian princess. (Kestra)
-Her brother who happens to be a doctor. (Darmok)
-A redheaded guy who possibly has a mangina (Manty)
-A couple of Irish vampires (the Gees)
-A Cristian porn star (Liz)
-And a 13 year old girl who happens to be a gay robot hamster. (Bond)

Man this place is screwed up.

I can't believe I'm having to correct this again, I am not Irish, I am British, I am not a citizen of the Republic of Ireland, I'm a citizen of the United Kingdom, it is not that hard to remember, I don't call every American here Canadians because I at least remember theres a border between the two much like there is here.

... :( Anyways on to more important things.

Maybe he loves you. Maybe one day he is going to jokingly bring up cybering with you, and sorta laugh about it. But that's just to test the waters. Depending on how you may react, he might start becoming a little more friendly. And before you know it, you'll be dressed up as a raccoon and having sex in super Motel 6 outside of Houston, Texas.

While I think the confusion is unfortunate; I think you’re being a bit unreasonable. I do agree that ignorance of/apathy towards geography (especially among Americans) is lamentable; however, this case is certainly understandable. Yes, of course, Northern Ireland is part of the United Kingdom, but you must admit that it's a bit counterintuitive. In almost every other case I can think of, people from a region modified by a cardinal direction adjective still use the adjective associated with that region (for instance, Germans in East Germany, Koreans in South Korea, and so on). Your analogy is flawed; there would be no reason to believe that someone from the United States would use the adjective Candian. Adding to the confusion is that at least to me, your username “sounds” Irish.

I do hope that people will remember from now on that you’re from Northern Ireland, which is part of the U.K., and that you’re therefore British. But try to remember that your situation is somewhat unique.

As a matter of fact I have been called an Indian princess before on several occasions by creepy men trying to hit on me.  In one case when that failed, he tried to set me up with his nephew.

Ok, here's one piece of advice I'd like to pass on.  Call it a life lesson, if you will.  If you're ever in the position of having to make the choice, choose to keep you immune system.  Because let me tell you, getting a cold when your immune system is suppressed sucks all kinds of ass. :( >:(  But I suppose i can suffer through a cold if it means that I don't, you know,  have to die of liver failure.  Anyway, I'm feeling a bit better now, so no worries.   Mmmm, medicine. ;D

Aw, come on Jimi, if we’re ever in that position, there would be a very good reason we were thinking of suppressing the immune system—like keeping a transplanted organ, controlling an autoimmune disease, and so on.

But yeah, immunosuppressants are no fun.

My dad told me that particular rhyme on several occasions.  I was hoping to get a larger panorama as the clouds to the west of me (the picture is looking northeast) had a pinkish purple color.  Interestingly enough I took 2 pictures but my breath passed in front of the lense and ruined the shot.  though I could probably pass it off as a ghost on film.

Not to change the subject or anything... but...

I'm looking for a quote that was in someone's sig recently... IIRC it was from Battlestar Galactica. All I remember are the words "nascent echoes". I remember it was a nice/interesting quote and I wanted to use it for something... but I can't remember the whole thing.

Can someone help?

Post by: Bond, James Bond on January 20, 2007, 12:34:39 AM
^^^ "Mists of dreams drip along the nascent echo, and love no more. End of line."

It was said by the Hybrid (the mostly humanoid Cylon that controls Basestars) in the BSG episode "Torn." She utters many such lines of seeming gibberish which may or may not give insights into the Cylon religion.

The doctor said that it must have been some sort of epileptic seizure.  I'll get definite word on Monday til then I'm keeping an eye on her. 

Well when it rains it pours the house across the street from me was on fire.  I was watching DS9 and I hear all these sirens.  I went out to check and from what Ive been able to determine there was some sort of electrical fire in the basement.  Only one guy was home though so I don't think anyone was killed.

Ok, so the doc's said wait about 8 weeks after the surgery which I have done, and so I'm nearly ready to start driving again.  YAY!!!  Freedom.  It's a big deal to me at least considering the fact that just a few months ago I couldn't go anywhere by myself, let alone drive there. 
So now I'm ready to get back behind the wheel, however my car is not.  The air bag is beginning to protrude through the steering wheel and looks as if it might deploy at any moment.  AGH!!!!!  I can add this to the list of problems, including rattling windows/door panels, blown dashboard lights that make it so fun to drive at night, and a smell that I haven't quite identified yet.  Seriously, I think there might be something dead in there.

I need MTV to pimp my ride.

Yeah I figured it was something like that.  But I'm not exactly ready to buy a new car just yet.  It's a '94 Geo Prism, which is a Toyota Corolla clone, with about 150,000 miles on it.  So stuff is bound to start breaking down sooner or later, but this little stuff like that is really the only trouble I've had with it.  Plus it gets good gas mileage and that Toyota engine has miles left in it before major stuff starts to break down.
Title: Re: Off Topic Discussion, Birthday, and Hello / Goodbye Thread
Post by: starhawk on January 29, 2007, 09:36:23 AM
My father had a '90 Geo Prism for a while, and a '92 after it... I don't know if the '94 model is the same, but boy can I tell you a horror story about those cars :o never let the oil light come on on them -- by the time it does, the engine has been so starved of oil that it will seize up eventually no matter what. And the crankshaft main bearings that seize up can't be removed -- you have to buy a whole new engine. That'll be US$2k, sir. Isn't life wonderful.

It ran the same years as it did in the US, from 1987-94, though I don't know if it premiered on the same exact date as it did in the US. If so, that was September 28, 1987.

I just (re-)watched “Devil’s Due” today (TNG episode, Ardra returns after 1000 years to enslave the population of Ventax II). I love the arbitration scenes. Data is awesome.

Quote
Picard: Objection.

Data: Sustained. The advocate will refrain from expressing personal affection for her opponent.

Quote
“Ardra”: Then, sir, may I ask you to explain this?

Tremors occur.

Data: You are out of order.

Tremors stop.

“Ardra”: Or this?

Picard disappears.

Data: The advocate will refrain from making her opponent disappear.

Picard reappears.

“Ardra”: Or this?

“Ardra” transforms into a devil figure.

“Ardra” as devil: Can you explain it, Picard?

Data: Any more disruptions and I will rule you in contempt of court. Is that understood?

Quote
Data: Your leeway has run out, Captain.

Picard as Fek’lhr: Rrrrraaaaawrr!

Man you cocky 03'ers.  Let me just tell you whipersnappers something back in 02 we didnt have any fancy Matrix sequels, or X2, or Kill Bill or Freddy vs Jason to talk about all we had was Spider-man and ATOC and we were thankful for it!  Why to get to SCN I had to walk 7 miles through the snow uphill....BOTH WAYS!!!!

I'm pretty sure you were already an established mod by the time I joined. Hell, you were almost the face of the mods, if I recall correctly.

That would require effort to check, but that would disrupt my reputation as a do nothing slacker. (cookie for the reference)
Actually, that sounds pretty close, since I found SCN shortly after I went to high school, and that was 4 years ago.

And now another long overdue dark chapter of...

SCN Secrets...

Special Employment Edition

Flagg - Is Paulie Shore...I think thats all I need to say.

Xero - Like all Canadians owns stock in Tim Horton's and takes time out of his day to spit in the coffee machine!

Manticore - Used to be Paulie Shore's love slave and personal bitch. *puts 2 and 2 together*  Eeeeewwww  :-X

Razor - Used to be Grace Jones' love slave  :-[ (Its okay though nowadays I get booze and cocaine for Cerina Vincent)

Kestra - Spent 5 months in an insane asylum Hospital for the "emotionally interesting" due to being employed as the personal assistant of Martha Stewart for about a week.

Maple Dog - Is the gimp from Pulp Fiction.

Data007 - Supplies Lindsey Lohan with crack-cocaine, booze, and occasionally the blood of virgins.

Bernd - Used to be in an Umpapa band but quit after losing a music competition to the Von Trapp Family Singers family singers. (I know bullshit right!)

Shik - Used to be a cook at Neverland Ranch.  This is the motherfucker who made the "Jesus juice"  >:(.

Stoo - Is a professional soccer hooligan.

Bond James Bond - Used to be Sean Connery's love slave...

Oh what dont believe me? listen to this recording.

*Razor hold up a tape recorder*

Sean Connery: Listen here laddie the knobbing ya gave me last night was terrible.  You are without a doubt the worst knobber Ive ever had

Bond: Oh yeah what about Micheal Bay!?

Sean Connery: You heard me!

Bond: But Mr Connery I tried my best!

Sean Connery: Losers whine about their best, winners go home and fuck the prom queen! Now bend over and put on this tiara.

Bond: Why?

Sean Connery: Because...tonight you're the prom queen! *tape stops*

It gets progressively more disturbing from there.

Okay, I think that my school president, Mr. Donovan, is a pussy.  We have our second snow day in a row.  Never mind that there are people who can't see their cars or anything.  Fuck 'em.

;)

This is the view from my apartment's doorway...

I feel sorry for the lady yesterday who had to shovel the sidewalk so those of us walkers could at least get out...three times.  It took 4 guys an hour to clear the diveway and dig out the cars in the apartments behind me.

At 6 am yesterday I started up the snow blower. It took 4 tries before I realized it was out of gas  ;D

Some people in this building complain when the side walks aren't shoveled when they wake up, but they then complain about the noise of the shovels scrapping the ground  ::)

So I figured, "Fuck it" and pulled out the noisiest thing we had  ;D ;D ;D

If I begave a bit cranky in the next couple of days, ignore me. My embryonic stem cell culture was completely ruined by a bacterial infection today. Which means we have to import new cells from Canada, which will set my project back at least 3 weeks. This with me having only 6 weeks left as it was.  >:(
Positive note is that I can blame my supervisor for it, because they got infected on the one day he took care of them.  ;)

I have returned!  I just spent six days in the hospital because of some viral infection that was causing my liver enzymes to shoot up.  They still aren't 100% sure what's going on and I'm waiting for a few more test results, but I don't think it's anything serious.  Anyway I feel as well as I have been feeling since the surgery, aside from the general malaise from spending a week stuck in a hospital.  My docs are mainly just adjusting medications and since I'm more likely to catch something else being in the hospital, they decided to cut me loose.

So what'd I miss?

Hey Jimi, glad you're feeling better. :)

So what's the weather like for everyone?  It got sorta cold here, dropped below zero for awhile and now that it's up above freezing everyone is joking about the heat wave.  The snow was crazy too ... we left early from work one night (closed at 3PM instead of 5PM) and I didn't get home till 6:30!

Also, exciting news for me (but probably boring to the rest of you) .. I had a lawyer help me file some papers and I'm officially in business!  It's amazing how they can take a million different forms that seem overwhelming and help you sort out the whole process.  My friends have been spreading the word without me even asking, and I've already gotten some calls from people!  Wish me luck ...

Yeah, it's an event planning business but most of my business will probably come from bridal events.  I also do decorating for smaller events, because there aren't a lot of people around here that decorate for Indian parties (though I'm not limiting myself to Indian clientele).

Why would I send naked pictures of myself, in all of my awesome glorificness?  You've been looking at composites of Ann Coulter, George Bush, Michael Moore, and Greg.

On a semi-related note, why the Hell does every person I meet online, talk to on IM's and every site I join think I'm a girl for the first while? I've been called "her", "she" and "miss" at least once in the last week, WTF?

Beats the crap out of me.  When I last saw your picture I thought you looked like some heavy metal rocker.  Nearest I can figure is that you might get a tad emotional online sometimes.

In the meantime I seem to have gone temporarily blind from even glancing at manty's picture. *Shouts to the heavens* Damn you Manticore DAMN YOU TO HELL FOR SENDING XERO THAT PICTURE!!!!!!!

Bond is getting older. Time is starting to lose it's relevance to him. The clock is nothing more then a ticking annoyance to his elderly ears. In 2 years, 3 years tops, he'll spend time on his front porch throwing things at those damn kids on his lawn, until he finds out they're garden gnomes, even then he'll forget what was said, to continue to throw things.

So you don't have to worry about those little nuggets of knowledge much longer.

Greetings, SCN. I have been admitted to your holy clan, and want more posts, so thus I introduce myself here. :P

I'm not really that interesting on the whole, actually. I'm a biology nerd, as could plausibly be inferred from my user name and avatar, as well as a Sci-fi nerd, as could plausibly be inferred from my presence on this board. I read and watch television far too much and am terrible with people. Thus you have "me." (gah sociology flashbacks)

I had a science teacher years ago that put physics into the simplest terms:

"Newtonian Physics: what goes up, must come down. Einstienien Physics: what goes up, is under the influence of many opposing forces, wanting to rip it apart. Quantum Physics: What goes up, will not always come down."

Not very accurate, but it got the point across.

Ah, the high school days when I thought I was going to be a biologist (specifically zoology).  Then I got in physics class and did a report on particle accelerators.  That made me enter collage as a physics major.  Then the math got to me and I switched to chemistry.  And now here I am in the beginning of my journey towards Ph.D.-dom.  ;D

I've already had physics and I barely got through it (by which I mean I made an A, but it was a lower A and I actually had to work for it... hehe). Math isn't my strong suit. Chemistry I enjoyed fairly well. I actually didn't like Biology II that much... it was all medical stuff and medicine bores me. Sorry Da Vinci... I'm more of an evolutionary biologist sort of fellow, and primatology. I love my monkeys.

Headed off for Spring Break... technically it doesn't start till tomorrow at 6 but there were some odd circumstances (namely I'm sick as a dog) that allowed me to go home early.

I will have intermittent dialup at home; Mother works at home and needs to hog the one computer that has Internet for most of the time. I will check in when I can tho.

See you guys next Sunday or Monday (depending on when I move back into my room)!

Dude, it has nothing to do with his beliefs. We've had civil and intelligent discussions on religion before. It's just that he doesn't listen to any points made, uses RIDICULOUSLY circular logic, and is dismissive and (IMO) rude to other members about their religious beliefs. Plus, he's a creepy dude who scours the internet for any references to his site, eager for a chance to defend his idiotic logic.

There are only two rules when dealing with Manticore:

1) Don't feed him
  If you do, he'll never leave, and that's why he's been here at SCN so long

2) Don't acknowledge him as a human being
  You do, and he thinks he's people. It takes a good 2 weeks to get trained again.

My Xbox 360 got the Ring of Death (3 flashing red lights on the front of the console that mean General Hardware failure, more like a Horseshoe of Death, then a ring) 2 weeks ago. When I phoned Microsoft they told me it would cost $160 to get t fixed.

After 2 weeks, and finally got the money to repair the thing, and Microsoft informs me that I bought a extended warranty, that covers repairs until 2008! From the sounds of it, I don't have to pay anything. They guy said about a 14 day turn around. They are sending me a box to ship the console back in, then they are sending me a new(as in most likely  refurbished) console!

GRAW 2 comes out next week, and I won't have a console to play it on for atleast a week after  :-[

Atleast I don't have to wait months to get it fixed.

Photoshops his face onto famous people
Is in a constint state of denial
Drinks Zima

ARGH!!!!#%#@$!^!#@$

My fecking graphics card died this morning.  I smelled something burning, so I shut down my computer...and it was my graphics card.  From what I could tell, the fan half-died or something, and the GPU itself followed soon after.

I've already ordered a new one (that's significantly better to boot) but it won't be arriving for a few days.  So until then, my access is limited to school.

Joyous.

Hey JD.  Good to see you around here again.

Hang in their Razor and I hope everything works out for the best.

In other news, I had to have surgery yesterday to have a lymph node biopsied.  They went through a small cut in my neck just under the Adam's apple so it's very sore today.  This is all going back to me being in the hospital the last few weeks.  This is about the fourth biopsy they've done but the others have all been non-diagnostic which means they didn't really find what they're looking for.  It turns out several of my lymph nodes have just suddenly increased in size and so they're looking for cancer, though there are a few other things it could be as well.  So more waiting.

Thanks everybody I didn't mean to make it sound like a demand at first.  He was visiting for the week and apparently had bought a large quantity of Xanax off our neighbor.  I found him foaming at the mouth and with pin sized pupils.  He wasn't able to stand so I called for paramedics.  I spent most of last night (a good 2 hours) in the fetal position in the hospital waiting room until my sisters were able to arrive.  They kept him overnight and we went to check on him today.  As of today he's in ICU and is on a breathing machine but they havn't been able to take him off of it as whenever they take him off the sedative he becomes combative.  So I dont know what the future holds right now.

Hope everything works out for you Jimi aint nothing worse than a sore throat to add insult to injury with your lymph node problem.

Hopefully he'll recover, that's what's on my mind right now.   Xanax overdose = nasty.  There is a reason it's a controlled substance!

After you know either way, go after that neighbor. Remember, there is no death too painful for those who harm family.

Yesterday some sick being decided to start a fire - inside our stairway, at the door to the basement, and in the middle of the night. There was more smoke than fire, but it grew really thick, and breathing was next to impossible on the ground floor. It was extinguished rather fast tough, and apart from the smoke, there would not have been more damage.

Nevertheless, that is the third time that something like this has happened, and who can tell if this sick bastard is not going for another door next time...

Police could only do so much, because it was in the middle of the night, and naturally there were no witnesses. I suspect that it must be someone from our neighbours, because the front door of the building was closed, and you have to have the key to open it, so it can not be a stranger.

Yeah, if it wasn't forced open than it has to be someone from the building or a friend they've given a copy of the key to. That's pretty freaky though. Who knows if this isn't some amateur arsonist building up the nerve to do something bigger.

My thoughts exactly. I only hope it does not come to that, but now that this happened for the third time now (over the course of some months), I am starting to feel a bit uneasy. Next time it could be an appartment door for all I know...or something bigger.

Everyone is quite edgy about it, and understandably so. I am betting that the guy who did this is laughing his ass off, about all the attention he is getting now.

Something similar happened in Chicago, not far from where I live with fatal results:

4 dead in Wrigleyville fire

By Matthew Walberg and Angela Rozas
Tribune staff reporters
Published March 10, 2007, 10:14 PM CST


Four people died Saturday morning in a fast-moving apartment fire in Wrigleyville that police are investigating as a possible arson and that may be connected to several other small fires set in the neighborhood overnight.

Police issued a communitywide alert for a "person of interest" in the fires.

"She appears unkempt and appears homeless," said Chicago Police Department bomb and arson section Cmdr. Edward J. O'Donnell. "If she is homeless, she could be possibly mentally unbalanced."

The apartment fire was reported just before 7 a.m. in a three-story building at 3553 N. Fremont St. and appeared to have started in a stairwell between the second and third floors and spread quickly, O'Donnell said.

The four victims, three men and one woman, were in the only occupied unit on the third floor in the rear of the building. A 21-year-old man in the apartment jumped out a window before firefighters arrived and was taken to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center, where he remained in stable condition with a fractured pelvis and wrist, a police source said.

Killed in the fire was Jennifer Carlson, 24, a single mother of a 4-year-old boy. She was working two waitressing jobs to put herself through college in hopes of becoming a clinical massage therapist, said her aunt, Cheryl Greenlee. Carlson was the youngest of three children and graduated from suburban Belvidere High School, moving to Chicago two years ago to attend college, her aunt said.

"She was such a sweet girl. She was getting her life together and was excited about finishing school," Greenlee said. Three men in their early 20s also were killed, but they were not identified because their bodies were badly burned, the Cook County medical examiner's office said. Dental records will be used to confirm their identities.

O'Donnell said several samples of debris from the scene were sent to the state crime lab. A police source close to the investigation said a fire dog with the state fire marshal's office found an area where an accelerant may have been used, but O'Donnell would not confirm that.

Smaller fires investigated

Authorities also are investigating three small fires set in a stairwell, sidewalk and front porch on nearby North Reta Avenue around midnight Friday. On Saturday, charred remains of newsprint sat in the front yards of several apartment buildings on the street.

O'Donnell said witnesses on Reta provided details for a composite sketch of the person of interest. She is described as African-American, 5 feet 8 inches, 110 pounds to 120 pounds and between 30 and 40 years old. She was wearing a teal blue shirt, gray sweatpants, and at the time of the fires may have been wearing gray plastic bags on her feet.

Police are checking with area shelters for the woman. Belmont Area Police Cmdr. Thomas Byrne said the woman was not known to authorities.

"There have not been fires like this," Byrne said. "Especially in such a short time and with that frequency." Nobody has told police of seeing the woman near the Fremont building.

Authorities asked residents to be alert for anyone suspicious and to throw away stray paper products.

"Be aware. If people are walking around, take notice," O'Donnell said. "If they see them in their gangways, call 911. They should also remove all available materials from their porch area, such as discarded newspapers."

Officials said the fire on Fremont moved so quickly that the victims likely did not have a chance to escape. Though the fire started on the front stairs, the victims may have opened the door there, feeding the fire, O'Donnell said.

Carlson's family drove to Chicago from Belvidere and spent much of Saturday near the apartment building, waiting for word about her and her son, Blake. They feared he might have been in the building. But late in the afternoon, family members rejoiced and cried when a friend brought the child to the scene. Carlson had sent her son to a babysitter's because she was working a late shift, her aunt said.

"We were just so relieved to know that Blake is OK," she said. "But this is just devastating to our family." Two of Greenlee's siblings died in the last year, and Carlson's mother used their deaths to explain Carlson's death to her son, Greenlee said.

"She told him, `They went to heaven, so Mommy had to go to heaven to be with them,'" Greenlee said. "How much a 4-year-old understands, we don't know."

Greenlee said the family planned to return to Belvidere Sunday to make arrangements for Carlson's funeral.

Paul Feschuk, 40, who lives in a three-flat in the 3500 block of North Reta Avenue, said he heard smoke detectors going off about 11 p.m. Friday and saw a woman outside poking at a fire in front of his building. The woman was dressed in dark clothing and appeared to be burning a sweater and some newspapers on the sidewalk, he said.

"I asked her, `What the heck's going on?'" Feschuk said. "She said, `I'm sorry, I'm sorry. I'm just trying to keep warm,' which I thought was odd because last night was relatively warm."

Feschuk said he called 311, and in the morning saw a pink Nike shoe stuck in his doorjamb and a second shoe in the building's vestibule, along with a pair of white athletic socks. Police later came to his apartment, interviewed him and took the shoes and socks, he said.

Building has separate entrance

The gray-stone scene of the fire on Fremont has a separate entrance and address on Addison Street, where several residents escaped Saturday morning. One resident told officials she heard a smoke detector. Fire officials said that part of the building was not damaged, and residents were allowed to return in the evening.

It was unclear whether smoke detectors sounded in the part of the building where Carlson and the others were staying. Ald. Tom Tunney, whose district includes the Fremont building, said his office has never had any problems with it.

Attempts to reach the building's owners in Florida were unsuccessful.

Courtney Vanderheiden, 25, lives on the second floor of the Addison Street side of the building, and said she awoke to the sound of authorities banging on her door. There was no smoke on her side of the building, she said, but she could see the fire as soon as she got outside.

"I threw on sweats, grabbed the cat, and looked for our purses," she said, standing outside the building with her cat, Addi, in a pink cat-carrying case.

Matt Devine, 25, lives on the first floor of that part of the building, and only had time to grab his wallet, cell phone and slippers. When he got out, he said he saw the man who had jumped out of the window lying on the ground shirtless, as authorities tended to him.

"I was terrified," Devine said. "You really just have to grab your stuff and run."

Thanks everyone.   :)
I got some good news over the weekend.  The biopsy didn't show any signs of cancer, just dead lymph node cells.  So right now the lymph nodes aren't cancerous, but the doctor warned that just becasue they aren't cancerous right now, doesn't mean they won't/can't become cancerous in the future.  So they're probably going to start me on some other medication; I forget the name of it right off hand, instead of full blown chemotherapy, to try and get the lymph nodes to shrink back down to normal. 
This is the second time in about the past three years that one of my docs has thought I had cancer, only to be put through a battery of tests that all ended up showing it to be something else.  I think if i make it to three times, I should win some sort of prize.

Good luck and best wishes to everyone else who's dealing with their own troubles right now. :)

Just wanted to pop back in and give everyone an update.  My Dad pretty much signed himself out of the hospital 2 days ago....AGAINST MEDICAL ADVICE!  I basically had to go down there and pick him up while he's arguing with his doctor.  You see the overdose really set off his COPD and they kept him on a breathing machine.  They took him off it and used a steroid ( I didn't get the specifics so don't ask) to get him breathing again.  They stopped giving him pain meds and he decided not to stay. The doctor explained to me that they wanted to keep him under observation for at least a day to see if he'd have any adverse reaction.  He seems to be getting better but this shit could have been avoided if he'd only quit smoking  >:(.  So I'm gonna start getting on his ass about it.  Ive also informed my sisters that if we intend to get serious about this they should quit too.  To say that I'm worried and uncertain is an understatement.

To everyone though I appreciate your kind words!

Though apparently from a bad situation comes some of the best news yet.  When I was about 6 my dad told me that I have an older brother and another older sister.  You see he was married before meeting my mom.  Sadly this woman was severely unbalanced and bipolar and left him with my brother (she was pregnant with my sister at the time).  Its something thats basically been on my mind for as long as I can remember.  With my Dad's recent illnesses I decided that it was time to try and find them.  So I used a reunion website and an address came up.  I wrote a letter with my email on it and sent it out.  2 days later my brother sent me an email and my sister sent one a few days after that.  This week so far has been the biggest series of up and downs Ive ever had!

Eerily enough my brother is a History teacher specializing in Japanese history though now he does medieval Europe.  My sister is studying to be an O.R nurse but like me loves Star Trek (apparently she's wanted to go to a convention but hasn't been able to convince anyone else to go) and like me is a Horror movie nut! :o

Talk about highs and lows....

Though I'm sure it will be difficult, my advice would still be to keep the presssure on your dad. But that easily enough said from the sideline. :( Hope it works out, though.

But on the other hand, really cool for you to have found your other siblings. Though I find it a bit early your long-lost sister is basically a female version of you. Sounds like a genetic thing to me... :P

Oh... dear... God, it's genetic.  ;D

Thats what my mom and other sisters said!  Kind of funny though since Jenna (her name) came across as being very...how should I put this..."bubbly" it was kind of like getting an email from Kestra!  Though she's said that like me she has a twisted seance of humor. My mom suggested that we should all eventually meet somewhere perhaps a restaurant to catch up and converse.  We've informed my dad and his reaction has been somewhat reserved.  As far as my brother and sister are concerned though they really don't remember him (Jenna never really met him at all) and are more content to talk with me and my sisters for now.  But still I'm very psyched about the prospect.

I fucking hate the people in this building? What part of recycling do they not understand? What part of using small bags for garbage don't they understand? What part of not throwing glass down the shoot don't they understand? What part of using a garbage bag in the first place do they not understand?

Everyday I have to go out there and unjam the garbage compacter because someone shoved a whole lamp or a bunch of fishing rods or some other piece of junk that should have been put in the other dumpster meant for that kind of shit down there. Speaking of the other dumpster, the only people other then me who use it, are people who come here to dump their garbage illegally. Just once I would like to go through a week without having to pull a over stuffed, big assed garbage bag out of the chute, because someone was to lazy to follow the fucking rules that are clearly glued over the fucking shoot?

Any idea how god damn fucking annoying it is to have to hose out the garbage room because someone threw out a a whiskey bottle, and not the whole room is covered with rotting tomato, and a green substance that smells like a mix of baby shit and cooking fish?

If it's not the dipshits who can't understand basic rules, it's the fuckers who break the laundry machines and blame one of the 5 year olds in the building, it's the mother fucking cock sucker who likes to pull the fire alarm at 3 in the morning. My all time favourite is the piece of shit who thought it was funny to put crazy glue in all three of the main entrances, when I find who did that I will kill them, and shove the body up their parent's asses for raising such a idiot child.

Saturday night I got a complaint that a door was squeaky. If it's squeaky put some fucking oil on it, I'm to god damned busy cleaning up after these bitches to give a flying fuck about a squeaky door.

I am so fucking close to snapping.

Heya.  I just got back from the doctors and it looks like I'm going to be at home for a while when I have three important Lab sessions this week grrrr.

And I'm sorry to hear that Xee, you should see some of the crazy stuff people throw in the rubbish here.

When I was living in the dorms at my undergrad university, some jackass was pulling the firealarms at four in the morning.  We'd go outside the building and stand there for 30 minutes.  Then they'd call us in alphabetically and look at our hands to see if one of us had pulled the alarm because they put blue paint or something on it.  Needless to say they never caught the guy.  Oh, and I had ~7:30-ish classes too.

Some people just need to be kicked in the nuts.

And I'm back and you didn't even know I was gone.  I tried not to know I was gone, but it's harder then it sounds.  Spent three more days in the hospital, nothing serious just needed some I.V. medications.  I'm still tying to decide which sucks more, being in the hospital when you're actually sick and feel like crap, or being in the hospital when you feel perfectly fine and would rather be anywhere else.  :-\

Well looks like I'm heading back to the hospital again; my liver enzyme levels are back up which means my body is trying to reject my shiny new liver.  They just called about an hour ago and said to come in about six and they should have a room ready.  I'm not sure how long it'll be but if I were to venture a guess, I'd say don't expect me back anytime this week. :(

This time though, I'm taking stuff to work on so I don't fall behind on some various projects; mainly my novel.  I'm almost a month behind where I should be because of all the hospital stays, so this time I don't intend to fall behind.  I'd like to take my laptop so I can draw some as well, but I don't feel entirely safe taking it with me and I'd be totally screwed if it got stolen. 

So anyway you all hold down the fort till I get back...whenever that might be. :)

Does that liver come with any kind of warranty?   And are you sure they wired it in correctly?    See I never trust contractors that why I do that kind of work myself. 


Kidding.   Hopefully they can convince your body that the liver you have is important to it's well-being and that digesting it would be a bad idea.   ;)

Well... I installed Microsoft's latest update to Windows Media Center Edition 2005 (which came on my lappy) and it totally borked Corel. The program will open, but when it tries to load the default template to start making images with, it gives an error message along the lines of "You're trying to get past the end of a document that doesn't exist yet!" I've reinstalled Corel twice, removed and reinstalled the updates, used Microsoft's fix-it tool for the error that they know about that's created by the update, and nothing works. Corel's dead, Jim.

This unfortunately means that I have to withdraw from that A&D competition, as I've no idea when I'll be able to get CorelDRAW! X3 (the current version) in an honest manner, and I refuse to own software that I know is pirated. If I get Corel X3 before the end of the comp I will ask to be reinstated.

I'm putting a link to this post in my [CMP] thread so I don't have to retype anything there.

Post by: Jimi James on April 05, 2007, 05:06:06 PM
I'm Back!!!  YAY!!!

The liver had a warranty card, but I neglected to sign it and send it in. :D

Anyway, everything went fine this time. 

The doc's say that unfortunately this is just something that I'll have to deal with for a while.  Basically what's going on (for those of you interested) is that I have this virus called the Epstein Bar Virus (just about all adults have this virus, but a normal immune system can handle it) but where my immune system has been suppressed, it's screwed up my lymph nodes, causing the non-cancerous lymphoma.  To fight the virus and deal with the lymphoma, they have to decrease the medications that suppress my immune system (which keeps my body from rejecting the new organ) so that my body can fight the virus.  Decreasing the medications that suppress my immune system cause the liver to go into rejection so they have to walk a very fine line of keeping the medications adjusted so that I can fight the virus, but also not go into total rejection.  So for a now I have to keep getting my liver checked (blood tests and biopsy's) and the medications adjusted which means spending a few days in the hospital.

It's sort of frustrating to have to go through and deal with, particularly since I feel fine.  But I suppose it's better than everything I went through before the transplant so I can't really complain...or at least I try not to.

Thanks everyone the well wishes and support.  It's greatly appreciated. :)

Starhawk, that sucks about having to drop out of the Competition.  Hopefully you can get everything worked out and get back in before te deadline is up.

So I was sitting in class yesterday (this is an event-planning course) and the instructor was telling us about a 25th anniversary party she coordinated for some couple with a lot of money.  She said that as an anniversary present, the wife flew in four of the actors from TOS in to surprise her husband, who is a Trekkie.  The instructor mentioned Shatner but couldn't remember the names of the others and I wasn't about to out myself as a Trekkie.

So here's the thing, how much do you think that would be worth?  She said they were each paid something like $150,000, were put up in the Ritz for the night, and only had to stay at the party for 45 minutes.  That's crazy.  She also told us that they were really cool and ended up staying several hours anyway.  Maybe someone can get Patrick Stewart to show up at my next birthday party ...

If I'm going to pay $150,000 to meet Patrick Stewart I expect to get at least 45 seconds of EEEEEEeeeeEEEEEeeeeeEEE!!!!! time in.
I would probably be doing that.  But I'd call him "Captain Picard" by mistake, which I'm sure he'd like all that much more.

I'd probably do something similar, definitely calling him "Captain Picard".  Hell I'd probably have a hard time working up the courage to say something intelligent as I have poor social skills.  I'd be like that episode of "Futruama" and when Fry asked Walter Koenig to "Say Nuclear Vessels in a Russian Accent!".  :D

I guess $37,500 per actor isn't that bad.  Though IMO that would depend on the actor.  ;)

So I was sitting in class yesterday (this is an event-planning course) and the instructor was telling us about a 25th anniversary party she coordinated for some couple with a lot of money.  She said that as an anniversary present, the wife flew in four of the actors from TOS in to surprise her husband, who is a Trekkie.  The instructor mentioned Shatner but couldn't remember the names of the others and I wasn't about to out myself as a Trekkie.

So here's the thing, how much do you think that would be worth?  She said they were each paid something like $150,000, were put up in the Ritz for the night, and only had to stay at the party for 45 minutes.  That's crazy.  She also told us that they were really cool and ended up staying several hours anyway.  Maybe someone can get Patrick Stewart to show up at my next birthday party ...

That's insane. But maybe that's because I have no desire to go out of my way to meet them even for free. I'm sure they're nice people and all, but I don't really idolize them in that way.

Joking aside, I honestly do think it would be pretty cool to meet Patrick Stewart.  I don't normally care about actors outside their roles, but I'd love to even just see him act in a play or something.

As far as price goes, 37,500 on each of the actors wouldn't have been a huge deal compared to the rest of the budget.  These are people who paid $900 just for each sofa that they rented for the evening.

I really fucking hate the buses in this town right now.

Seriously.

There's usually two buses that run the SUNY route.  On Monday-Thursday, IIRC, there's only one after five, but that makes sense:  Not as many people use them after five.  But on Fridays, I'm pretty sure that there's supposed to be two (well, until later, when it becomes three for the partiers).  Now then, I'm used to the first bus driving by me.  It's annoying, but I can live with it, and the second bus usually comes 2-4 minutes later.  So today, I was standing there at 6:30 as usual (for a 7pm shift), and the first bus drove by me (well, at 6:34-ish).  And so I waited for the second bus.

Never came.  I waited ten fucking minutes for it (by which time the buses have usually arrived at the main stop on campus).  Never showed up.  That's the second time it's done that for me.  Last time, I could kind of understand why there wasn't a second bus, since conditions were terrible.  I was pissed that I didn't get picked up, but I understood (and I had to skip work because I couldn't walk up to campus in those conditions, which didn't help matters).  But that couldn't possibly explain it today.  And to make matters worse, there was still room on the bus that did come.  Standing room at the very least, and plenty of it.

Seriously.  It's Friday night.  In a college town.  On the campus route!  And because I had to walk in, I'm considered 'fifteen minutes late' despite logging on at 7:07 because of our stupid 'round to the nearest quarter hour' rule.  And I would have made it by the normal time too, if it weren't for the fact that, for some reason, the only free computer that us labtechs can use to log on let us, y'know, log on* to the server.  Lets us log out, but not on.  So I had to go bug the guy sitting at the other computer to let me use Safari so I could tell the main server "Hey, I'm here, so I'm not lying on my timesheet."

*Over break, I got an email saying that they fixed it so that we could log in and out at any computer.  Hah!

I'm going to complain tomorrow when I had down to the depot to catch the bus to the grocery store.  Once is annoying.  Twice is ridiculous.

Here after five you have to use "Dial-A-Bus", you have to call the bus terminal to have a bus swing by and pick you up. It's fucking retarded. But it doesn't matter, local bus drivers seem to have a death wish, and enjoy driving 15 over the speed limit and whipping around corners, so maybe it's best no one uses the bus around here.

Hell no one around here knows what a speed limit is, or how to use the blinkers, or how to merge.  They weave in and out of lanes, can't turn on their headlights during rain or fog.

There's a bus system but I don't know much about it because I don't use it.  Walking for 20 minutes to campus is cheaper.

Yeah, we had something called "Red Car" to come pick us up from campus locations in the evenings.  Problem was, they would take forever to come once you called them and wouldn't even stop if they didn't see anyone outside, which meant you could easily spend half an hour outside wondering if every passerby was going to mug you.  Plus half the Red Car drivers were creepy (it was a van) and they'd hit on you while they were driving you around.

Of course public transportation in Chicago is another story altogether.

Is public transportation really that bad over there? No wonder you're so car crazy. Over here all the city lines go onto at least 10 pm, and there are even one or two special night lines that go almost all through the night. Pretty ideal.

It's not like there's a uniform rapid transit system for the entire country, it depends on the available budget, population density, etc.

Here the buses run until 10:00 PM as well, and you can call for the special pickups like the ones mentioned above after that. Some areas have buses running 24/7.

Frankly, I'm amazed we even have public transportation here.  It's a small 'city' of 13,000 permanent residents, with maybe 7-8k college students.  I'm not complaining about having Public Transportation (since it means I can live off-campus, seeing as how I don't have a car).  I'm just saying that it's my perception that it's rather rare in 'cities' this size, both population wise and in terms of land area (according to wikipedia, about four and a half square miles).

I’ve worked 40-50 hours a week since late august on this, it’s basically been my life for eight months. I’ve shared everything with my firends at the department, from happiness about good results to a hangover after a fun night boozing. It feels really strange now to just leave, even though I’ve finished.  I’m curious how it will go, I’m not nervous (yet) but I hope it’ll go smooth. Mixed feelings all round, I guess.  :-\

Well, it looks like there's spyware on my mother's computer. And it looks like it's going to stay there for a good long while.

Mother has one of those BlackBerry contraptions and she keeps getting spam on it that apparently is being sent from an account that's on her computer. Further, some sort of bot just signed me up using her email for some service called CollegeBoard that I've never even heard of.

Mother has Spybot: Search and Destroy on her computer as well as Ad-Aware SE... but not Windows Defender. Meaning that there's probably something slipping through the cracks. She also doesn't understand how Firefox can be better than IE if it has such a similar interface. When I tell her to download and use those things, she tells me that she doesn't need them. She simply doesn't seem to understand what's happening, and it p*sses me off to no end. She's smart enough to be a very good attorney in her field of work... she should be able to figure out that there's something screwing around with her computer and what's already on there isn't enough.

I have a feeling this is going to end in a reformat... which would probably be a VERY bad thing. At least she knows enough to do regular backups (I think).

[/rant]

Post by: Fiery Little One on April 24, 2007, 06:46:47 PM
Considering the fact that she seems to think that this spyware problem isn't a problem... I wouldn't count on the back ups. I also think she's probably not updating her software like she should.
Title: Re: Off Topic Discussion, Birthday, and Hello / Goodbye Thread
Post by: starhawk on April 24, 2007, 07:07:42 PM
Yah that's about what I'm thinking... she doesn't have time to spit just about these days, what with finishing up what few cases she's got left (she's soon to be an ex-attorney) running a failing nonprofit and going back to school... she probably hasn't been backing up regularly at all. In fact, now that I think about it, I'd be mildly surprised if she backed up her files any time in the past six months.

Lord save me from those who can't save themselves.

Anyone else ever have a relative die after experiencing Alzheimer's for a long period? Does it have the same impact to you, having someone die, but having that person not really be themselves anymore?

As my grandfather, a sure bet for an Alzheimer's victim, just died, I wonder. Because over the last two years, he's been less and less of the person I grew up around, and I'm not hit as hard as I thought I'd be. Sure, my grandfather's body just died, but was his qoute unquote 'soul' gone long before?
Title: Re: Off Topic Discussion, Birthday, and Hello / Goodbye Thread
Post by: Bond, James Bond on April 29, 2007, 03:40:17 AM
Well, he hasn't passed away yet, but my Grandpa also has had Alzheimer's for the past few years and I can understand what you're saying. It's difficult to see someone who used to take so much pride in both his physical and mental prowess and his individuality deteriorate like that. It wasn't long ago that he was still climbing up tall trees in the backyard in his eighties to trim the branches, reciting player stats from basketball and football teams from decades ago, or beating everyone in poker and blackjack. Now it just seems like he's a piece of furniture at the family parties while everything goes on around him. I hate to describe him like that, but unfortunately it's apt. He doesn't even seem to respond anymore unless you make direct physical or eye contact with him. At a family gathering a couple months ago he didn't remember his son Danny's name, which was the first time that had happened and kind of a depressing moment for everyone.

So, I get where you're coming from when you say that you don't want him to die, but in a way it's kind of a relief because he's not the same person he used to be. And while he's not suffering in the traditional sense of a patient being in pain, some part of me thinks that there's a part of him that realizes how much his mind has deteriorated and that that would be worse suffering than pain in some sense. I hope that's not true, but the doctors did say that we were not supposed to discuss the fact that he has Alzheimer's in front of him, because the realization that they have it tends to send some patients into severe depression, which leads me to believe that he does in some small way have a realization of what is going on with him, but no real explanation for it. And that bothers me a great deal.

So yeah, while I'll still miss him when he dies, the Grandpa that I knew has already passed away in a sense.

My dad is starting is starting to lose his memory to. At first I thought it was because of his medication. But now he's only on a morphine patch, and his memory is only getting worse, so I'm not sure anymore...

You should try and get him in to get tested. While there's no cure obviously, there are medications to help retain some of your cognitive ability if you catch it early enough.

While still getting him tested, I wouldn't worry too much about it yet at this point because general memory loss is quite common with aging, so it's not necessarily indicative of Alzheimer's.

Well, I'm moving into a new apartment that only has one LAN cable outlet (that's already in use) and I don't know if I'll be able to pick up a wireless network there.  So if I don't make any posts for the next few days I'll still be trying to work things out.

Hopefully you'll be able to get it worked out.

Thanks.  I got it worked out.  :)

Anyone else ever have a relative die after experiencing Alzheimer's for a long period? Does it have the same impact to you, having someone die, but having that person not really be themselves anymore?

As my grandfather, a sure bet for an Alzheimer's victim, just died, I wonder. Because over the last two years, he's been less and less of the person I grew up around, and I'm not hit as hard as I thought I'd be. Sure, my grandfather's body just died, but was his qoute unquote 'soul' gone long before?
My parents never really told us what was wrong with my grandfather growing up, but looking back now it was probably Alzheimer's.

I remember them making comments about how he wasn't himself anymore, and his memory was clearly not what it once had been.  He'd often get me confused with one or two of my cousins and didn't seem to really know who I was.  It's sad, because I never got to know the person that he really was.

He passed away when I was in elementary school.  I remember being called down to the principal's office in the middle of some class party, and the principal just looked at me and was like, your parents are coming to pick you up because you're leaving for India today.  He was really sick at that time and he passed away shortly after.  I wasn't too affected by it because I was young, hadn't really known him well, and only saw him about once a year since he lived across the world.  I think of my grandfather as the person I have heard about in stories more than the man I ever knew in life.

My dad passed away this afternoon. He's been fighting cancer for a couple of months now, early this morning he developed a lung infection, and was to weak to fight it off.

There's things I need to take care of, so I won't be around for a couple days.

Later guys.

Sheesh, Kestra gets engaged the day before I graduate from college, and nobody cares.  I'm going to go cry in the corner now. :'(

Well how many of us graduate something at one point or another? Most.

How many of us ever get engaged? Not very many.

Seriously tho it's good that you're back, we were thinking of lighting up the Razor Signal, but every time we do that you come to us dressed in a Batman costume.

You forgot to mention that Im using the Batman and Robin batsuit.  Anyways its either you or Flagg as Robin and with Flagg it just isn't really very odd for him since he struts around the board in a pink thong anyway.  Its all part of my ploy to get Kestra in the catwoman suit!

Batgirl's more my thing than Catwoman.  ;)

Okay, so I went to see Shrek 3 and the guy selling the tickets asked if we wanted to donate a dollar to some charity.  I said "no thanks" automatically because I prefer to donate my time and money to charities that I've specifically picked out.  The guy asks, "I can't appeal to your better half?"  I just sorta smiled and said something about donating to other charities, not that it's even his business.  So then as we take our tickets and start walking away, he goes "Yeah, don't worry about them, they've just got CANCER!"

Does anyone else get guilt trips like that in stores?  I'm so sick of them and find them so inappropriate. Am I just overreacting?
Title: Re: Off Topic Discussion, Birthday, and Hello / Goodbye Thread
Post by: Chemahkuu on May 28, 2007, 12:11:00 PM
That was unnecessary harassment, giving to charity is not mandatory, I give to charities that I know will definitely get the money and use it well.  But there have been too many people hanging around asking for handouts that don't even say what the money is going to, or step right in your path and won't move until you either force them to (making a big deal out of it and calling out something like yours did) or they have to give up.

Don't feel guilty about it.

I am taking evening school now, to prepare for my final exams, and I've done quite well this semester. I am especially proud of my high marks in English, which I would not have, if not for constantly trying to improve myself, even if it means hanging with you guys...and Bond  :P :D

You know, I always thought that I had not improved at all. I only have you guys to compare to, (so mostly people who have English as their mother language), and since it is not by far the same level, I subconsciously thought that everyone here was better than me. The fears had no basis in reality however, for I am finding myself helping others whenever I can. :)
Title: Re: Off Topic Discussion, Birthday, and Hello / Goodbye Thread
Post by: Data007 on June 14, 2007, 06:34:19 PM
I've had this in my inbox for a while now, and every time I read it, it always brings a tear to my eye. It may not have actually happened, but the sentiment is clear in the writing. I had thought of putting this in TGF, but I didn't want the jestful tone of that section associated with it, and thought this thread was better than nothing.

My question to all of you is: Would you have made the same choice?
At a fundraising dinner for a school that serves learning disabled children, the father of one of the students delivered a speech that would never be forgotten by all who attended. After extolling the school and its dedicated staff, he offered a question.
"When not interfered with by outside influences, everything nature does is done with  perfection. Yet my son, Shay, cannot learn things as other children do.He cannot understand things as other children do. Where is the natural order
of things in my son?"
The audience was stilled by the query.
The father continued. "I believe, that when a child like Shay comes into the world, an opportunity to realize true human nature presents itself, and it comes, in the way other people treat that child."
Then he told the following story: Shay and his father had walked past a park where some boys Shay knew were playing baseball.
Shay asked, " Do you think they'll let me play?"
Shay's father knew that most of the boys would not want someone like Shay on their team, but the father also understood that if his son were allowed to play, it would give him a much-needed sense of belonging. Shays father approached one of the boys on the field and asked if Shay could play.The boy looked around for guidance and, getting none, he took matters into his own hands and said, "We're losing by six runs and the game is in the eighth inning. I guess he can be on our team and we'll try to  put him in to bat in the ninth inning."
In the bottom of the eighth inning, Shay's team scored a few runs but was still behind by three. In the top of the ninth inning, Shay put on a glove and played in the outfield. Even though no hits came his way, he was obviously ecstatic just to be in the game and on the field, grinning from ear to ear as his father waved to him from the stands. In the bottom of the ninth inning, Shay's team scored again. Now, with two outs and the bases loaded, the potential winning run was on base and Shay was scheduled to be next at bat.At this juncture, let Shay bat and give away their chance to win the game?
Surprisingly, Shay was given the bat. Everyone knew that a hit was all but impossible 'cause Shay didn't even know how to hold the bat properly, much less connect with the ball.
However, as Shay stepped up to the plate, the pitcher moved in a  few steps to lob the ball in softly so Shay could at least be able to make contact. The first pitch came and Shay swung clumsily and missed. The pitcher again took a few steps forward to toss the ball softly towards Shay. As the pitch came in, Shay swung at the ball and hit a slow ground ball right back to the pitcher. The pitcher picked up the soft grounder and could have easily thrown the ball to the first baseman. Shay would have been out and that would have been the end of the game. Instead, the pitcher took the ball and turned and threw the ball on a high arc to right field, far beyond there each of the first baseman. Everyone started yelling, "Shay, run to first! Run to first!"
Never in his life had Shay ever made it to first base. He scampered down the baseline, wide-eyed and startled.
Everyone yelled, "Run to second, run to second!"
By the time Shay rounded first base, the right fielder had the  ball He could have thrown the ball to the second-baseman for the tag,but he understood the pitcher's intentions and intentionally threw the ball high and far over the third-baseman's head. Shay ran toward second base as the runners ahead of him deliriously circled the bases toward home. Shay reached second base, the opposing shortstop ran to him,  turned him in the direction of third base, and shouted, "Run to third!"
As Shay rounded third, the boys fro m both teams were screaming, "Shay, run home!"
Shay ran to home, stepped on the plate, and was cheered as the her who hit the "grand slam" and won the game for his team.
"That day," said the father softly with tears now rolling down his face, "the boys from both teams helped bring a piece of true love and humanity into this world."

AND, NOW A LITTLE FOOTNOTE TO THIS STORY: We all send thousands of
jokes through the e-mail without a second thought, but when it comes to sending messages about life choices, people think twice about sharing. The crude, vulgar, and often obscene pass freely through cyberspacebut public discussion about decency is too often suppressed in our schools and workplaces. If you're thinking about forwarding this message, chances are that you're probably sorting out the people on your address list that aren't the "appropriate" ones to receive this type of message. Well, the person who sent you this believes that we all can make a difference. We all have thousands of opportunities every single day to help realize the "natural order of things." How better to serve humanity, than to  have a positive influence on a child!!! So many seemingly trivial interactions between two people present us with a choice: Do we pass along a little spark of love and humanity or do we pass up that opportunity, and leave the world a little bit colder in the process?
------------------------------------------------------
(My words)
Even if you've never thrown a baseball game to make a challenged child feel like a million bucks, I like to think we'd all be willing to do smaller things to improve the moods of those around us, like sending them that one Valentine in a class where they've never gotten one, or throwing that game of Warhammer because the kid opposite you can't read the rulebook and is just beyond thinking of the miniatures as better detailed army men, and is practically having others do the moving for him. The important thing here is that some things are more important than winning, and stories like this just bring them to the front.

Today's my birthday! I'm 21. Before anyone asks, I have no friends except here and I don't drink alcohol, so I will NOT be celebrating with 21 shots tonight.

In fact, today's going to be a fairly ordinary day. Mom is out of town for business and we will be celebrating when she gets back. Dad lives 1-1/2 hours away and we already celebrated... last weekend. I got an iPod (30GB), a wierd book, and a couple of gift cards, one of which somehow got stuck under my dorm room microwave (?!) making me regret the fashion in which I cooked my lunch and dinner yesterday (that morning was when it got stuck under there).

In the meantime, I have schoolwork that needs to get done for class tomorrow and I have a class tonight. This sucks, doing actual work on my birthday, but such is life, so...

...or I might just play with some newly downloaded abandonware. Teehee.

Just so y'all know, I'm leaving on vacation to visit the relatives (and a few other places) tomorrow, and we'll be coming back on the 30th (though we'll probably be arriving on the first...so it's quite likely that I'll be coming home on my birthday ;)).  We're bringing my mom's laptop, and there's computers at both of my grandmothers' houses, so I'll still be checking in, but I thought I should let you know.

God damnnit my brother is a hypocritical fucker.

His girlfriend gave her brother $200 to help him get out of debt with his dealer. My brother in his typical fashion went off the deepend, going on for 15 minutes why she was an idiot for doing so. When I reminded him that I sold a  surround sound receiver for $500, 4 years ago to get him out of debt with his dealer, Joey,  goes on about how it was different. He owed his dealer for pot, his girlfriend's brother owed for ecstasy. I told him, it doesn't matter what the drug was, he stilled owed money, I still helped him out, and I didn't hear him complaining about that.

Then I asked him for my $500 back.

Wow, that's really sad, and hypocritical. Mind you, I'm not entirely sure if I would've bailed out my brother, but that's just because I think that if he's stupid enough to do drugs, then he deserves what he gets. That's just me though.

It could be due to your linking to Conservapedia. You can view what pages link to your site, and they might have distributed the SCN topic link amongst their contributors to see if our heathen members are not insulting their proper Christian values.

That's just a guess though.

Could it also be a bunch of spambots wanting to join, or don't they show up on the guestlist?

EDIT: I just noticed something odd, if you look at what topic the guests are looking at, more than half of the guests are watching a very old topic, "Life Force - a physical basis?". Very strange.

My guess is that a member here might have linked to that topic on another site and the members there are viewing it. Or that someone keeps jumping on and off SCN from other sites in less than five minute increments (which is how long your name remains on the active list) for some reason and viewing various pages.

Well, I am having a lovely day. AVG Free just informed me that a Trojan has claimed a critical system file. I am currently in the process of disinfecting my computer.

The specific Trojan is Downloader.Tibs.

I rather suspect that this is from that "e-card" that I downloaded. That was probably not a smart thing, getting an e-card from a stranger :-[

Watch out for *.pdf's from strangers, too -- at least I'm smart enough to avoid those.

Not doing that again.

By the way, if you have the free version of spyware doctor, be aware that it WILL NOT remove ANYTHING until you pay for it (http://img527.imageshack.us/img527/6473/burnoq9.gif) (http://img255.imageshack.us/img255/5963/batyt0.gif)

Here's a complete list of the antivirus/spyware programs on my computer, barring the utterly useless Spyware Doctor Free Version:

- AVG Free Antivirus v.7.5.x
- Ad-Aware SE
- Spybot: Search & Destroy
- Spyware Blaster
- SUPERAntispyware
- A-Squared Free
- AVG Anti-Spyware
- AVG Anti-Rootkit
- Windows Defender Beta, latest ver.

There's no way in Hell I'm letting that computer back on the network till it's so clean it squeaks. The college's network has enough nasty crap (spyware, viruses, etc.) as it is.

Quite obviously, no network = no Intarwebs.

Besides, I'm too p*ssed to want to go in the direction that --from what I've heard-- chats with you usually go.

*School
*Bands (Marching, Jazz, Concert)
*Massachusetts Boys' State
*Webmastering (New site design and content-- www.jdroger.com)
*Lots of other stuffs.

Sorry Im late folks.  Had jury duty today.  Normally I'd be really interested in doing it as I thought it was an enlightening experiance the last time I did it.  But today I was supposed to go into my store's pharmacy for tech training.  Its not that big a deal since I'll be training for the rest of the week but I hate missing the first day.  What really aggravates me though is that my job wanted me to come in later that night to work after a day long trial...after I had already called out!  They're short handed in the maintanance department because the normal day time guy cant work because he had a stroke.  But as far as Im concerned they're just gonna have to ride the 5 other guys working that department as opposed to just me.

I just now occurred to me that I forgot to say thanks to everyone that wished me a happy birthday.  My mind must really be going.  That reminds me of a story...wait...what was I doing...

Oh yeah.  Thanks everyone. :)

Anyway I didn't do a lot of celebrating.  I've never been much on birthdays and all that.  I'm more low key and like to just hang out.  Which is exactly what I did so it was quite enjoyable.  I did get a sweet present though.  Well actually I paid for it, but whatever.  I go a Canon Hv20 camcorder.  So I've been running around filming stuff this past week.  As soon as I can get a story worked out and sucker...I mean convince some of my friends to help out, I want to try and shoot a little 10-20 minute short film.  If it works out, I'll let you all know and try to find somewhere to host it online.

Didn't stop you from throwing rocks from every overpass we came to.

There were no negligable changes in the timeline from me doing that.  I mean yeah Bond's a man now and Manty is no longer married to Nicky Clyne but nothing significant.

I disagree.  Your tinkering with time prevented Al Gore from being elected president and prevented him from inventing viable fusion reactors.  >:(

Damn you!!

:P

Yeah and Dick Cheney shot and killed Pat Robertson and Tucker Carlson in a hunting accident.  Well there's no need to worry now, like the necronomicon before it my big sister has taken my time machine away.

Xero: Because of the changes in the time stream?

No because I *sheepishly* borrowed her sunglasses without permission  :-[

Hey guys...

I just wanted to let you know that I haven't been around because my Dad passed away on the Fourth of July.

I'm just starting to come to terms of this, and even so, just had the feeling to actually post that and to let y'all know.

I'm not sure when I'll be posting more, but you'll know when I do.

I'm sorry to hear about that Shinobi. My condolences and best wishes to you and your family.

Hmm me thinks we shouldn't tell Kestra that she was queen of a small European nation  with millions of admireres and that Flagg was her human footstool....oops.

I still have millions of admirers so it's okay.

In good news, I had my first really large event yesterday.  A lot of you know that I started my own wedding/event planning business, so these were my first major clients.  It was a wedding reception with the guest count numbering up to around 650, so it was quite a large party.  But it went well!  Hopefully it's a good sign of things to come.

Oh no no Ive already taken the liberty of being the wedding planner for Kes' wedding  8).

*Razor holds several sheets of paper with his wedding plans on them*

Lets start with the wedding dress, red stiletto heels, black fishnets stockings, eh...

Kestra: Razor I hope you dont get offended but Ive already taken the liberty of getting a court order prohibiting you from having anything to do with the planning of my wedding.

*Kestra hands Razor the court order*.

Kestra: Dont feel too bad Xero, Setekh, Flagg, and Moonshadow are on there too.

Well then this seems to be in order.

Kestra: Oh and Im going to do your future wife a favor.

Yeah, I'm planning it but pretty much holding off on the plans until my sister's wedding is over in August.  I pretty much know the vendors I want to use anyway, so it's not going to be a huge production.

You already spent your pay on booze, didn't you? Rummy.
I may have had a very small chocolate martini at the end of the night.  ;D

There are 3 professors from my school (University of Tennessee) on the list. 1 in math, 1 in physics, and 1 in Computer Science. I'm not the least bit surprised that there are no biologists...

But anyway, all you other guys/gals in college can try to find professors from your school.

What, no one wants to be Robin?

When I was young
I never needed anyone
And fightin' crime was just for fun
Those days are gone

Livin' alone
I think of all the sidekicks I've blown
But when I dial the Robin's bat-phone
Nobody's home

All by myself
Can't vigilante
All by myself, anymore
All by myself
Don't wanna fight
All by myself, anymore

I thought Robin knew his role
'Cause every night he slid down my bat-pole
But "stay 50 yards away" the judge did scold

What, no one wants to be Robin?

When I was young
I never needed anyone
And fightin' crime was just for fun
Those days are gone

Livin' alone
I think of all the sidekicks I've blown
But when I dial the Robin's bat-phone
Nobody's home

All by myself
Can't vigilante
All by myself, anymore
All by myself
Don't wanna fight
All by myself, anymore

I thought Robin knew his role
'Cause every night he slid down my bat-pole
But "stay 50 yards away" the judge did scold
So I was told

All by myself
Can't be Joker's enemy

i got a wuick question, which just came up into my head, and seemed not relevant enough to deserve its own topic. Classical composers have well over 500 years of music composed, with often many compositions on their name, let alone the numerous 'anonymous'. How is that number of compositions compared to the number of songs released by pop artists?

Though amateur musicians are not that rich in repertoire mostly, they are in large numbers, although 'true composing', i.e. not adapting existing songs, would be relatively scarce. Still, would classical composers be able to produce more with a 'supposedly supreme' quality than pop musicians?

Well that was the idea  ;D. 

I have to go in for surgery to remove 2 rotted molars and an impacted wisdom tooth.  Apparently I have an extra wisdom tooth directly above my rear-most tooth lodged into my jawbone.  In other words if you removed the first wisdom tooth there would be another one directly below it in the gum.  Im a fuckin freak of nature!!!!!!  Sadly my job decided to provide the worst insurance possible for dental and I have to pay $850 to extract the 2 rotted teeth.  The impaction is covered but the extraction isn't go figure.

At most with my dental plan, all I would have to pay is the $0.35 Pharmasist's fee for the Tylenol 3s. General Motors has amazing dental plan.

I had to get 2 fillings a couple weeks ago, both in two wisdom teeth, didn't cost me a dime. Cost GM over $800 though.

Speaking of wisdom teeth, I had to have all four of mine removed plus two other teeth that had been impacted by the lower wisdom teeth, prior to my transplant surgery.  So they ended up pulling all six at once...which was a bitch for that first day but was as easy as eating pancakes after that.

This is sort of a A&D thing...but not REALLY, so for the moment I'll stick it here & if need be, I can repost it there.

I've never usually been one for desktop pictures. I usually find them too cluttery, you can never see all your icons the right way, & with the size of the windows I keep, I usually don't see them much anyway. On my old pre-klink piece of shit PC I had an image that I made up that fit the bill. I can't do that here because I can't use an image program yet; I got a cracked copy of Adobe Design Suite CS3 Premium the other day, but I can't install it until I upgrade my RAM a bit.

At the moment, & since i got my Mac, I've been using the standard Aqua Blue Tiger wallpaper (http://macnugget.org/stuff/Aqua%20Blue.jpg). However, I did gank a couple images (mostly Firefly stuff) to play with & maybe set on the rotation every so often. However. I'm thinking about seeing if I can have someone draw up an image for me, a personification of my computer to add to that, or keep as the basic standard image. I run my resolution at 1344 x 1008 & I can easily stretch a smaller image (700 width & above, that is) to fill the screen. I just don't have the ability, comouter or pen-&-ink, to do it myself.

So..yeah. if anyone's interested, drop me a PM or something & we'll work things out including payment in money, food, porn, music, what have you.

My insurance will actually cover the anesthesia and surgery for my impacted wisdom teeth.  But I'm going to have to pay 500 dollars for the anesthesia if I want to get my 2 rotted molars out.  Are you telling me that they can just give me a local and remove them without knocking me out and raping my wallet?

Hmmm, I thought it was pretty rare nowadays. Now I'm going to go have to find out how common it is.

Of course it could be like you say Kes, and depends on how difficult the procedure is, because pulling mine out was fairly simple. Still hurt like hell later, but it wasn't that big a deal while they were being pulled and it was over fairly quickly.

Yeah, that kind of stuff doesn't really bother me, apart from the awkwardness of having someone's hands in your mouth.

I had an ingrown toenail on my big toe that kept coming back even after removing the ingrown portion of the toenail, and finally the doctor decided to use a laser to cut off a portion of the skin around the toenail. I sat there watching it and thought it was pretty cool, though the smell of burning flesh without any associated pain was kind of surreal. Never had a problem again after that though, so that was good.

Without knowing the details of your insurance coverage I couldn't tell you, but you should definitely ask the dentist if that's an option. I wouldn't doubt for a second that they're going for the more expensive alternative to make some extra money.

You should see the way the doctors and dentists eyes light up when they see the billing possibilities of my insurance.

I take part of that back now...because I'm not sure I was totally knocked out.  They still consider it anesthesia but what I've had several times for other procedures as well is...I'm not sure what they call it exactly, but you're still awake.  They just give you enough meds so that you don't what they do to you and when it's over they give you another med that wipes your memory.  I kid you not, because all the times I've had it done, I remember it like I was asleep the entire time, but the doctors and nurses have assured me that I was awake.  So I'm pretty sure mine was one of those deals. 

People swearing you were awake, but you can't remember any of it...talking about freaking with your mind.  Or just Saturday night for some people. ;D

Hmmm, I thought it was pretty rare nowadays. Now I'm going to go have to find out how common it is.

Of course it could be like you say Kes, and depends on how difficult the procedure is, because pulling mine out was fairly simple. Still hurt like hell later, but it wasn't that big a deal while they were being pulled and it was over fairly quickly.

I'm guessing it's not that common, because it's riskier.  If they can get away with a topical anesthetic for a procedure it would make sense to use something like that instead.

Quote
I had an ingrown toenail on my big toe that kept coming back even after removing the ingrown portion of the toenail, and finally the doctor decided to use a laser to cut off a portion of the skin around the toenail. I sat there watching it and thought it was pretty cool, though the smell of burning flesh without any associated pain was kind of surreal. Never had a problem again after that though, so that was good.

Yeah, ingrown toenails can be a serious issue for some people.  If they have to keep going back, sometimes they just have the doctor kill the cells in the nail bed so the nail never grows back.  Weird to think about, isn't it?

Both of mine keep ingrowing, the right one curls until it hits bone.  I may have to ask to have that procedure done in the next year or two.

Definitely, either that or the chemical version Kes mentioned that kills the cells to prevent growth. The laser version hurt for a little bit after the local anesthetic wore off but it was fine in a couple days. It's nothing you can't walk on though.

I used to have a problem every year (I guess it runs in the family since a lot of other family members have had that problem too), and now it hasn't happened again for the past ten or so years. Ingrown toenails are painful as hell, I'm glad that's behind me.

I have a local anesthetic and watch the procedure in full, heck I even hold the gauze to the wound afterwards (even though it means bloody fingers) but its always finsihed with a large, what you would call Q-Tip, saturated with pure Phenol to burn the root, pushed down into it.

Now even with that it still grows back, albeit slower than before.  So a few surgical removal of both with a laser or more permanent burning method would be needed.  I heal pretty damned well apparently so if something needs to stay dead/damaged it needs doing more forcefully with me lol.

Your country is very nice -- and your Peace Palace in Den Haag is quite pretty. It is not anyone's fault but my own that two unfortunate things happened when I was there -- we (I was traveling with a friend) left our camera behind at the Peace Palace (fortunately someone was kind enough to turn it in and we recovered it the next day), and on the day before we were to leave for Paris we accidentally lost our BeNeLux rail passes; I think they fell out of one of our bags on the train back to our hotel (which was actually in Zandaam -- there are no sub-$200 hotels in Amsterdam that we could find).

Good for you.

I'm always surprised how much foreigners like the Netherlands. I guess that's the difference between living in a country and just visiting. I'm being more and more negative about my country actually. We always had the name of being a kind, intelligent and tolerant county, and until the 90s that was true. But unfortunately the Netherland is becoming a backward little country. The general populace seems to become stupider every day, racism is more and more normal (as exemplified by that Hitler-wannabe Geert Wilders being in Parliament) and in many cities gays can't even hold hands anymore or they're beaten up. Most people seem more interested in who becomes the next Idol or Superstar or whatever that what is actually happening in the country. The politic isn't helping either, because they're only interested in getting the next soundbite.

Anyhow, I'm graduating in august, and I'll be out of here with any luck, doing a PhD abroad. Probably I'm going to Scandinavia or some other country that is still civilized. Maybe in four years thing will have become better here, but I doubt it.

(Rant over)

Glad like like it anyway.

So, today a wonderful woman was nice enough to expose me to an MRSA antibiotic resistant staph infection without telling me she was contagious until afterwards, which was just great. So tomorrow I have to go down to the doctor and get checked out, and probably get put on some other type of antibiotic that it isn't resistant to.

I saw her crying so I went up to her and asked her if she needed any help and she grabbed my hands and thanked me and asked if I could go into the store and make a purchase for her since she had an MRSA infection and wasn't supposed to be out in public, but she said she had no one to run errands for her.

She clearly wasn't all there mentally.

Anyway, I basically drenched myself in antibacterial soap and alcohol after that, so hopefully it's okay, but I'm going to get checked out anyway.

But if I am infected I have puss filled pimples and boils to look forward to! Plus the rest of the Biblical plagues no doubt.

She looked like she was maybe in her mid-to-late forties. Not old, but clearly not all there. She was driving this nasty looking truck, and I told her she needed to go back home and call a service if she needed to get groceries again.

Oh, it will be fine I'm sure. It's treatable with other new antibiotics and only really dangerous if you have a weakened immune system (which is why it's so deadly in hospitals and nursing homes).

I was just kind of irritated at this woman for walking around knowingly exposing people to a potentially dangerous infection, especially to children, the elderly, and the sick. Hopefully she took my advice and won't do this again, but now I kind of regret not calling someone to make sure she was restricted to her house or a hospital.

It's been a goal of mine for some time to work at a games company which has made a number of games that I've enjoyed over the years.  Yesterday, they offered me a job as a QA test associate.  It's a temporary position, lasting about three months with no option of re-hire, but the experience will be invaluable, and it'll look good on my resume.  Assuming that I get the acceptance of employment thing faxed to them by Monday, I start work on the fourth.

I can't wait, even with the 40-ish minute commute. ;D

I'm obviously far too good to be a villain. :P Hey Razor, isn't your own name nearly good enough to qualify for villain status? I mean, the whole undead thing's got to be worth something...

If I felt like I was left out, then yes, but I didn't feel left out. I was more than half serious about being too good to be a villain. Heck, I have a hard time justifying killing flies. I just didn't want to come entirely out of left field with my second comment.

So I had a meeting to finalize my second research project today, and it turn out great! (For those of you that didn't know, forgot, or couldn't care less, I'm starting my final year for a masters degree in medical biology)

I'll be working on a brand spanking new gene, which was only discovered at this lab last year. It was found out that is may be involved in helping stem cells from the brain turn into proper brain cells, but that's about everything anybody knows. So that means I can investigate all sorts of cool new properties this gene may have (or not have of course  ;)). Best thing yet, I'll be working directly under the professor setting up my own project, rather than helping some PhD student getting his/her thesis ready. Which also means I get first or second authorship on the article that will get published on this (hopefully). All in all great cutting-edge stuff.  ;D

Can't wait till October.  ;D

I think fluid mechanics would be very useful for properly understanding how airplanes work - I wish I'd done it myself at some point.

I did a tad of fluid mechanics in my first year (in the context of blood circulation). I though it was most annoying, but then again I didn't really needed it anyway.

Well my mother had a terrible car accident, but she is o.k. and not injured at all. She is staying in hospital for the night, but that is just a routine procedure anyway. Details are rather sketchy, the only thing I know is, that the car overturned  - considering that, I am even more happy that everything is ok.

Yeah, I'm not that far from Wisconsin, so we have similar weather.  Probably less snow overall during the winter, though.

Also on another note, I finally got around to seeing Terminator tonight.  It was pretty ridiculous in some parts, but I've heard the second one is better so hopefully I can watch that soon.
