That ... doesn't really change what Izawwlgood said. It can't be healthy to be that physiologically addicted to caffeine.

Undoubtedly, but at the same time I don't think it's the type of unhealthy that really warrants a doctor's visit.
Unless stated otherwise, I do not care whether a statement, by itself, constitutes a persuasive political argument. I care whether it's true.

Probably right, but I haven't been to a doctor for 10 years, so I probably have a skewed view of what warrants a doctor visit and what doesn't.

I wager most people who would be offended by improper pronoun use would also be offended by gendered compliments. 'manliest' is useless, when something like 'badassessest' would suffice.

Oh, because I make close to minimum wage, and am far below the poverty level, the minimum wage shouldn't be raised? Because then otherwise, why, I'd get lazy and have no incentive to climb the ladder and become a manager. I'd just sit in the lap of luxury, cleaning up human shit as I do. It's not only supposed to be menial, terrible work - it's supposed to pay too little for me to afford to fucking live! Can I pay my own rent? No. Food? Sure, on a starvation diet. Can I afford anything like doctor visits for when, inevitably, I get sick? No. Therapy so I can cope with my shitty life, which you so gleefully point out is the result of my own poor decisions? No. How about saving up for retirement, or saving up at all? Ha ha! Of course not. So I guess it's just working fantastic for me! This is what management is made of, right - starvation, despair and daily humiliation? Of course you're right, I could just go to the job farm, where jobs grow on trees and get myself a better job, now that I have my wonderful, grueling experience. I could go to college and get a degree OH WAIT I ALREADY FUCKING DID. I could stop having so many kids OH WAIT I'M SINGLE THANKS FOR REMINDING ME. I could stop spending all my vast wealth on frivolous things OH WAIT I DON'T. I BUDGET, LITERALLY, EVERY FUCKING PENNY. So yeah, no raises in wage for me, thanks! I see clearly now how much fucking better the system is when there's just less money going around to us menial fucking workers! And how much better it is for me, you fucking shitty ass rotten excuse for a person! Why should I even bother to have a fucking work ethic? Why should I dry the floor when it's wet, when people like you just walk right through and over it even though you can clearly see I just mopped there, forcing me to re-mop it and re-mop it and hope that one day I'll have a gap between the parade of assholes long enough for the damp to dry!? What do I care if someone falls and breaks their neck? So what if you sue the company? Good for you, you'll be rich, I'll be poor. Why should I bother to sanitize the fucking bathrooms even though you literally shit all over the place and throw your used toilet paper ON THE FLOOR? Why should I even get up in the morning? Why should I bother living? Fuck! AT LEAST ITS NOT SO BAD, because hey there are people who don't even get paid for their work! I could be a child slave laborer! I should be grateful that there IS a minimum wage because now I can almost afford to continue existing! ALMOST! In fact let's LOWER the minimum wage, that way people like me will have even MORE INCENTIVE to get that fantastic job that's just around the corner!

They say such things because they need somebody to feel superior to, and it's not socially acceptable to (openly) hate black and/or gay people anymore. You'll often see people who say such things openly hate black and/or gay people in the company of their close friends, though.

Thank you, Honey;

oh; Thank you. That was Manly.
What choice did I have?!

Ride or Stop and Vomit.
yuck. I did both.

Hey! I came here with a Rant.
This is the Rant Thread.

Thesis Statement?
I am not as conciliatory as I used to be.

I talked to an Old Man that does not Know he is Old.
He knows and he does not know; All at the Same Time.

It is Arrested Development. He is Proud of Not being Old, and he is Old.
Age is, just, a number. Yes. And; a Bath, Hair Cut and a Shave are Just?

Unimportant for a Young Man of twenty?
Young men look ok when they have Gone Back to Nature for a season or two.

An old man that is still living like a Kid on a Campout;
Inside the Luxuries of the 21st Century is What?

That's Stupid! He has running water.
He has electricity. He as All the Bells and Whistles.

He is a nice man. Nice is Good Enough.
But; Not! Fashion Police!

When people look like Rumpled Foreskin it can be a symptom of other things.

That man Looks like Rumpled Foreskin because he thinks he is Twenty?
If so; He is Wrong.

My people have Arrested Development.

Eight out of ten.
(It is a guess.)

It makes a Good Hypothesis.
Test 1000. The numbers may be good enough with an N=1000.

The media The People are exposed to helps to create the internal Lives and Self Image of The People.
The way media is used is as individual as The Person. It effects us All.

There is Nothing New, under the sun.
In BC xxvv, People would stop developing.

Some people stay young in one way.
Some people stay young in other ways.

Be Childlike; Not Childish.

I see people act Childish.
It is justified as Childlike.

Fine Line between a Person playing Hop-Scotch at an advanced age and
A person that refuses to Bathe?

Rant!

A Dirty Body is Easier to Clean than a Dirty Mind!


Arrested Development is nothing to be Proud of.
I would rather play with a person that is dirty on the outside than dirty on the inside.

I think it is a Fucked Up choice. Take a bath!

Some people Can Not bathe.
The luxuries of the 21st Century are not available to everyone.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arrested_development
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Developmental_disorder

I am not using the term properly to interact with the internet.
If I used some bench marks?


http://www.simplypsychology.org/Erik-Erikson.html
According to Erikson, the ego develops as it successfully resolves crises that are distinctly social in nature. These involve establishing a sense of trust in others, developing a sense of identity in society, and helping the next generation prepare for the future.

Ericson was not God and we All know Freud was not perfect;
But; Erickson gave voice to Truth. Humans Development.

There is a Whole area or study named Human Development, when I came from.
Erickson was not the only thing to read.
The Development of The Internal Organs are somewhat Age Specific.

It is ok to tell a person they have a Retarded Liver.
It will catch up. Baby amounts for that person into their 18th or 25th year.

Human Socio/Psycho Development is Very Fluid.
We Learn so much of what we do.

It is not instinct. Much of what we do during one stage or the other is Learned.
Arrested Development is Fun and Games.

It is also serious for both the individual and for the culture.
It is like Royals. We can afford to have silly, unproductive, Childish Royals or Aunt Betty.

When the number of Immature adults exceeds 50%.
Well.....Did they say, "Special?"

Like retarded? Yes. Like retarded.
The Spark is not there or it is too slow.

The Spark. It is a way of using something many understand to explain what many see, but do not understand.
It is a small spark that begins The Explosion that is repeated over and over inside an internal combustion engine.

The Spark of Inspiration.
The Spark of Genus.
The Spark of Enthusiasm?

When the Spark is non existent or shows up at the Wrong time, the engine does not work properly.
The Spark that Blows a man from one Developmental stage to the Next is as Natural for Man as Smooth Running is for a Car.

The culture does not support The Person in becoming a Mature Reasonable Level Headed goof-ball.
Life is not a "Barren Walk Through an Endless Vail of Tears." for Mature Adults and Mature Children.

The Mature Child is not like a Unicorn.
A Mature Child may be Rare.
Mature Adults Are Rare!

I prefer my Adults Well Done. Thank you.

Oh. Arrested Development is fine and dandy.
But; Only a few. Not Everyone! We need Real Adults.

May I suggest a healthy portion of word salad? Unless you must have your name in there, it's easy to come up with a random set of words for your email address; think correct-horse-battery-staple. You can then use the same handle everywhere.

Ranting on The Pant Thread.

I may be learning a little Internet self control.
This is where Rants belong.
Not on what some people call The Upper Threads.

I did not post it There.
It is a Rant. I post it here.
Ranting. About the idiom, Mother of all Suspicious Files.

It is funny and it is part of some people's lexicon.

I have heard Idiots and near idiots mimic Others and it sounds as Stupid as it is.
(Don't tell that Rich Bastard. He would not understand.)

He thinks you are laughing with him. And; It's true.
Honey; If you can hear him, you are with him;
And; that is Stupid on Your part. I should know.

Let's Blame The Victim.
Or; Find The Mother of All What?

The Mother of All Stupid?
The Mother of All Suspicious Files?

I have no idea. It is an Idiom.
It must have been useful before little children started saying it.

The Mother of All Spiders. I saw The Mother of All Spiders.
A guy keeps Pet Spiders. Huge! Not potato bugs; Spiders!

That thing may not have been Legal.
Maybe he had a permit for it.

He had eggs. and, They hatched.
He was justifiably proud.

Little tiny spiderlings living on a sponge.
Mom was Huge!

He made a mistake with her one day and she bit him.
He was fine. Swollen hand and a slight fever.
He was walking it off. People are funny.

My own Dog bit me one time.
It was Stupid on my part.

He did not blame the Animal.
I did not blame the Animal.

Mother of All.................
Spiders? Suspicious Files?

I am grateful for the Mods on xkcd.
I do not know what Security problems on the internet are Really like.

I've actually been meaning to delete my gmail address and use my normal primary e-mail address. :P

It's apparently tricky to do without deleting the whole Google account though. I wish I could just change the primary e-mail address on the account instead but Google doesn't let me do that.

I'm still proud of myself for getting in early enough to get a "first.last" Outlook e-mail address.

That's one of the reasons I use it as my primary actually... Plus a secondary email that is tied to the same account (and I think a hotmail one I don't use anymore).

I am getting more and more irritable and impatient toward people that are less intellectually brisk than me (that understand slowly or not at all, repeat themselves...) despite any other qualities they may have. While my anger toward wilfuly ignorant people doesn't bother me, this does. I don't feel morally justified in this annoyance. Wish those scruples would go away.

I hear ya, but ... yeah, you probably should feel bad about this.

Edit: This makes 100. Also, it seems like the forum is a little slow at the moment. Has anyone ever done a clean sweep of the normally accessible boards? And if so, how long would their time-out have to be? They'd have to spam a fair bit to get it all in at once.

I get excited when I meet ignorant people because it means I can teach them stuff (and learn more firsthand about how people learn.)

When I was young I wanted to do things with engineering, then in high school I focused more on science and math used in engineering. Now I like reading about the psychology/epistemology/rationality that informs math and science, and how to teach people most effectively.

Sick again, as of yesterday. It's just a cold, so you'd think it'd be over in like a day or two, but I seem to have acquired the trait Slow Healing. This means that for me, just like acne, colds take just about forever to clear up, so even though I have tomorrow off I'm worried I won't be healthy by the time work rolls around Thursday. I've had so many sick days so far. I need the money but I also need for them to know I'm not just shirking my duty and playing hooky, as it were, so I don't get a reputation as Mr Unreliable. Not that I'm totally reliable anyway, but if I'm going to get caught for unreliability, I'd like it to be a real unreliability rather than a perceived one. Then again my body seems to be unreliable, or at least, reliably unreliable. Now I'm just babbling to myself. As I am wont to do (ref: every other post I've ever made).
