Guys, you already have a BDSM thread. Since Koneko has posted this particular thing in both this thread and the BDSM thread (which is another issue - posting something in one thread will suffice) can you keep the graphic stuff in the BDSM thread, please?

Like confessing a burning hate for mundane annoyances, such as people who don't signal before turning at a four way stop, making it completely impossible to guess that they were going to turn into your forward path of motion (and your front bumper as well) because you thought they were going straight and came to the conclusion that it was safe to enter the intersection at the same time?

Or did you mean something else?

Man, I hate when people do that. Especially when I'm driving relatively unsafe vehicles lacking airbags, crumple zones and a roll cage (also known as a motorcycle). I have no choice but to stop and wait for them, because despite the road going either left or right, but not straight ahead, they don't signal, so I don't know if I should aim left or right of them when passing, and there's just 50% chance of getting it right and failure means horrible crash, quite likely ending in me not living much longer.

This reminds me of that old larson comic, where one alien asks the other: "What happened to agent Beel-Gotz that we sent to earth some time ago?" and the other one answers: "Well, he has taken the name Bill Gates and stopped answering our radio signals."

These last few days, for some reason I've become unduely popular, I've had a Stompa (40k geeks will be awed) named after me, I'm on a graph depicting happyness, I've suddenly began talking a lot to many of my MSN-Friends that I haven't conversed with much before, even became enamourd with one of them.
And of course, this happens to coincide with me moving out, again, rendering me unable to regularly access a computer out side of work.

And Mr.Orange
HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

You know, I think it'd be really interesting to have an altered state of perception/mind, and provided it were only temporary, I think it might actually be pretty enlightening.

For example, when you're immersed in a really good piece of literature, it's really easy to slip into any character's frame of mind and see life/the world from their perspective. It's a major reason for why literature is so enjoyable (to me anyway.)

But while I think it'd be a pretty neat/interesting thing to try, I've always secretly maintained that my imagination is MORE than enough to put me into any frame of mind or situation that I'd care to experience. Or something like that. Thus, I've never really gotten any strong urge to try any mind-altering substances. *Shrug*

Confession: I have been unfair to raisins.

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

But still - fuck them for ruining oatmeal cookies.

I hate it when you can't see them so you THINK it's a normal, awesome oatmeal cookie but NOO, it's full of squishy, nasty raisins that look like flies with their wings and legs removed.

Letsee.. there's the OnMedication crowd that, for whatever reason - their brain chemistry is such that they are currently incapable of approaching what one considers a normal state of mind. Depression, mood swings, whatever. Therapy helps in some cases, but not all. So there's one subset that, in many cases, gladly takes substances to alter their brain chemistry for the purpose of altering brain chemistry.

Then there's the SelfMedicating crowd. The people who have situations they consider so fucked up as to be unable to deal with them and so, right or wrong, ingest various substances to alter brain chemistry so as to make it more bearable. Whether or not the situation is able to be dealt with is debateable, as the reasons range from "I had a bad drive on the way home, two people cut me off, must drink to calm down" to "My dad molests me a couple times a week and the only thing keeping me from slashing my throat is smoking pot." and in many cases have more preferable solutions, but.. the reasons for choosing to alter one's brain chemistry is still a logical one as it makes something that seems fucked up seem not so fucked up and able to be dealt with.

Then there's the Experimental crowd. I'm lumping myself in with this group and will speak more or less from personal experience. We're the crowd that, for example, when told at age 10 that certain substances will cause you to see and hear things that aren't really there react not in horror or shock, but in curiosity and intrigue. Some of us engage in it in what I'd call a responsible manner.. reading up on the effects, the side effects, addictive qualities, duration, and so forth and choose to partake in a safe environment with plenty of time to enjoy and recover before having to interact with the world again, while others simply use their bodies as living chemistry experiments. The whole point is the altered perception and state of mind. Some use it as a tool to reexamine the self. Others use it just as a way to find out what substance X is really like.

*edit* And apparently I think qualities is spelled qualitys. Even after Firefox tries to tell me I'm wrong. Ah, well..fixed it.

Well, the next step is the Dumbasses, which basically are the same as the Experimentals, but they skip the part where they research the drug, and do dumb shit like take eight hits of Acid two hours before their shift at Pizza Hut or something.

ST: Yeah, I know exactly what you're getting at, and I don't doubt that it's possible to try things safely and responsibly. Salvia seems like it would be really cool to try (and legal and safe? too!), but then again you hear about bad trips where people get stuck as a piece of furniture for 20 years (in dream/trip time.) Wouldn't that be weird, living out an entire lifetime inside a dream state.

Re: Confessional Thread - Now with a newt idol!

Someone else wanted more angry confessions, so this is the best I can do with the current topic.

Confession: I have a violent temper. Despite all the reasons that I give for being against drugs, I think that I'm most afraid of what I might do with chemically-reduced inhibitions. I broke my wall while completely sober, just frustrated. I can easily picture myself hurting someone instead under the effects of mind-altering substances.

Confession: I hate him for being so damned understanding. I hate him for loving me that much. Dammit.

(DO NOT ASK.. I just needed to say it. Ok? Good.)

[Edit] Didn't realise you were on the search for an angry confession. How's that?

Confession: I *hate* smilies. Period.

It took me two years to accept punctuation-style smilies, but I still get mad at people for using image-emotes. When I'm reading black text on white backgrounds, the last thing I want is some horribly ugly yellow and red monstrosity in my face.

I manage to contain this rage inside me though, but remember: While I might seem calm and rational on the outside, on the inside I'm imagining a predator tearing your spine out.
It is practically impossible to teach good programming to students who are motivated by money: As potential programmers they are mentally mutilated beyond hope of regeneration.
