Title: Re: The complaint thread
Post by: [archive] Year_of_the_Scarab on March 25, 2005, 03:26:00 PM
                Seeing as the world is a happy and wonderful place, many of us born complainers are irritated beyond belief. But since bitterness and irritation are not welcomed in most places, we are often forced to get past our miscontent and actually become a better person.
 
 This must not be.
 
 Ladies and gentlemen, I proudly give you - the complaint thread (expect this to be unconstructive, pointless and closed soon). Instead of disrupting existing disscussions you can post your mispleasure here, for whatever reason.
 
 First off, I'm sick of this winter. I mean crap, it's nearing the end of March, and there's fricken snow outside here. What? Am I supposed to grow a pelt or something? Become eskimo? Enough is enough. We get it already - winter is cold. Understood. Winter, should you be reading this: YOU. CAN. LEAVE. I'm tired of people on the streets sneezing and coughing all around the place, it's just plain disgusting.
 
 Secondly - Troika closing down (I didn't say this thread can't be repeative, did I). How does this work? You produce a good game, which many a WoD fan has been waiting for longer than Michael Jackson could stay away from a lawsuit, and then what? They loose funding. But BioWare is doing juuust fine. I've seen some screens from Jade Empire - which by the way is an affront to the majority of their PC players - and am not impressed. Scantly clad ninja women (in ancient Japan no less, get the fuck outta here) and - this is no joke - additional content for those who purchase it earlier. Yeah, yeah I know, market rules. Still - basically if you don't get a "limited edition" copy you're getting less for your buck, "cos the man said so". I heard a song at the mall today, it was about a girl mind you, but the chorus went something like "If there's any justice in the world..." - to this I say - "...then it has a sick sense of humour".  
 
 Something different. People reportedly voting for nazis in Germany. I'm not even going into why on earth that's an option, but how short sighted must one be to give those "people" one's voice? It's not even like the repercussions of WW II are long gone and forgotten for sanity's sake. What will it take for national extremists to get finally prohibited by law for good? Hell, there's ample evidence of the destructivism of such movements even today, all around and on your TV screen. But does the intelligent part of the world do anything? No, instead the French vote for LePenn. Great. Nice world we're building for our children, keep on truckin'.
 
 And what's the deal with this Matrix-online ad on the right side of this page anyway? Must it give me that crappy dialog from the overly crappy moveie every single time I open a new window? Is that supposed to change my opinion and make me run to the nearest store to buy that pretentious title, just so I can hear more?
 
 Finally - I'studying law, but what exams do I need to take? Crimonology, pathology and bio. I' supposed to become a law advisor (don't know how that's called in english, sue me. I'll defend myself and get you to pay me reperations) or an attorney or whatever, not AGATHA CHRISTIE. What in the world do I need pathology for as an attorney? I'm in - and going to remain in - real estate. I don't want to become an advisor to the cast of CSI or something.
 
 (door slamming)
 
 peace (like hell.)

                I hate people.  There's not much more I can say than that.  Sure, there's a handful of persons that are worth my time, and sure I've got friends who are quite respectable, but for the most part, people are an utterly worthless rabble, constantly bickering about pointless things and greatly overestimating their existence.

 Plus, when passed down, the stories and info could have been misinterpreted or altered to fit with the writers opinions, plus some langauges don`t have direct translations, so others are subsituted in place and the whole meaning is lost.
 
 I steer clear of religion if I can, but I had to pitch in.
 
 And about your added complaint, I second that.

                I think I might be opening a can of worms here but I will say this nonetheless!
 
 Ok, there are intelectuals, who have extensively been researching religious texts who say, that the reason for there being so many religions in the world is because of the fallibility of man. And that the "other" religions were man-created and false. And then say that the only true religion is X and that the word of God is in text X or book X. I find this a very strange point of view as there is nothing pointing to the validity or lack thereof of any ONE religion or text being more true than any other.
 
 We fallible men make an active choice in what we choose to believe or not. Especially true for researchers. And to agree with this statement and then go on the record and say that this is the only true one... aw that is such a grand show of narrowmindedness and stupidity that it makes me sick! SICK I TELL YOU!
 
 So I want to complain about narrowmindedness and stupidity, because it is spreading like wildfire and it needs to be STOPPED!
 
 GROWL!

                Basing religion on texts is stupid anyway.  Three of the largest religions in the world, Judaism, Islam, and Christianity share many of the same stories in their respective holy books.  
   Plus all these texts were carried down through word of mouth for centuries, were sometimes written in one language only to have that language die and the story translated into another language.  A lot of meaning in these stories can be lost that way.

 And while I've got myself complaining, does anyone else really hate getting up in the morning?  What's the point?  Why can't I sleep till noon every day, work for 2 hours, play some games and go back to bed?  Society sucks.

                Ah, religion.
 
 I'd hate to step on anybody's toes with this, but then again that's why this thread is called what it is.
 
 The way some see it, religions were created as a way of  controling the populace before there was Microsoft. Whether one believes in a allmighty deity, reincarnation or anything else is their personal bussiness.
 
 Either way religion as we know it today was passed over to next generations through centuries, undergoing alterations and adjustments, often coming to contradictions within themselves. Take Christianism for instance. The whole religion is based upon such statements as "god is infallible", "all are equal in god's eyes" and "man cannot comprehend the will of god". And that's ok, if it works for them it's all great, no problem. But then, much as montnoir said, when so called "experts" on interpreting the will of god begin adding meanings and ideologies to given texts it's just creating a paradox. And to top it all - flat out proclaiming other religions false is just being pretentious.
 
 We, as a race, seem to be damned with hypocrisy, selective logic and a severe case of tunnelvision.

                I find myself coming up with different ideas of what exactly killed organized religion for me.  I come up with the discrepancies in the Bible (I am/was christian protestant), the weird rules you have to abide by, and you know what comes to the forefront?  This has to do with an earlier post of mine:
 
 
   I really hated getting up on Sunday morning and going to church.

 The Japanese used suicide bombers (kamikazi) and I don't remember them being overly religious.  Although with Facisim you're talking about a cult based around the country and government you belong to.

 I know what he was referring to, but suicide bombing is a tactic that isn't limited to religion.  That's the point I was trying to make.

 She says we are going to have to STOP bootlegging things from the net when we have children because it's not right or legal and we have to teach them right from wrong by example.  But she illegally downloads just as much crap as I do.  We get in to huge fights about this crap when it's brought up.  I can't fathom that I'm going to give up downloading things, whatever those things might be.  And I can't see me telling my children that something is wrong that I've been doing for years.  I mean my girlfriend still downloads things now, that's what really gets my goat.  If she thinks it's so wrong, why doesn't she stop?

   I'm not sure they're entirely different.  Kamikaze's planes were often loaded with explosives, and their mission was not to shoot and fly like regular fighters and then crash their planes (though in some cases they did), it was often their entire mission to fly their plane and crash at a specified target, similar to how suicide bombers work only the Japanese had more resources (i.e. planes).
 
   Here's a completely new gripe for the thread:  People who get pissed off at you for offering help.  This has happened to me at least 3 times in the last week on this forum.  I don't know what I'm doing to piss these posters off so much, but it seems like I'm stepping onto a flame war every time I turn around.  I think it's because people get mad at me for joking.

 I'll take your word for it then.
 
 I did notice that in a few of the threads you've posted in also - though I didn't think your remarks were worth them getting upset over. As I've said before - these forums don't allow for phonetics - so they can't tell if you're serious or not.
 
 Try hitting them with a sly remark then say something to boost their ego or help them out. The words 'but seriously...' at the beginning of you second setnence always helps too happy  The evil of smilies may help also.
 
 Oh and people getting pissed at each other and arguing about things is the basic premise of a forum - or seems to be.

 Hmmm... Well, I'm pissed off by ignorance concerning religion. I'd read about the way Torah books are written, if I were you. Strictest laws ever invented about writing something down, in my opinion.
 The Q'uran also remained unaltered. The text is the same, it's only the people that are different. They've become stupider and started frothing at the mouth, for a start. Now that is something worth getting angry about, especially in my part of the world.
 
 I'm pretty sick of my class schedule. I have to get up at 5:00 AM for three days straight. Just because a couple of bastards who just happen to be my professors are early risers I need to lose sleep. Bastards.

 Didn't mean to offend, Roman, and I shouldn't have commented on two books that I have never read.  I was talking mostly about the Bible, and how my religion has changed and altered it, re-interpreted so many times I can't stand it.
 
 Interesting story about the Bible, too, no holy man I have ever encountered will tell me who brought the stories together.  The Rev. Billy Graham tells everyone that God wrote it.  Either no one knows anymore, or no one will admit that a mere mortal did it.

 Well, as far the books from Genesis to Deuteronomy are concerned, we believe Moses wrote them. There's also an opinion that Joshua wrote the last few parts of Deuteronomy, after Moses' death. The rest of what you would call the Old Testament was also written by people, divinely inspired or otherwise.

 Pick up a Bible and read it.  Each book should have a short preface that tells you who wrote it, when, where, etc.  For example, the second book of the Kings was written by Samuel, and the book of the Hebrews was (like most of the New Testament) written as a letter from Paul to a select group of people.  This information is not at all difficult to find, and anybody who says otherwise is either lazy, ignorant, or subversive in the extreme.

                I knew I was opening a can of worms with my initial post... sorry everyone.
 
 I haven't read the holy texts cover to cover, because should I do it, I am quite certain I'd lose the little I have left of my sanity. But I have read passages, some rather large passages in the Koran and Bible (Old and New Testaments). And by just thinking about what I read, using nothing more than my own intellect, I concluded that there are certain texts that are written by people for people, to facilitate regularisation of society, at the time and in the place as the text was written.
 
 Don't get me wrong, I have a strong belief in a creator God, it's just I have some issues with some of the written texts as they are pretty obvious just a justification written by people. And there are no arguments of divine inspiration that can explain some of the issues...
 
 ...such as the impurity of woman over man, the explicit chapters of criminal punishings, the seating of women in the holy places and at holy gatherings, the architectural design of a tent, the unending rows and rows of family-trees, or the justification letter of... ah I don't remember Peter or Paul, one of the disciples that was invited to a church at some point and was laughed at and rediculed because of his slight height and total lack of personal charisma, so he wrote a letter blaming the parish for being faithless... and many, many more examples that - to me - point to a human hand and has nothing of divinity in it.
 
 Although I absolutely support religion as it brings hope to everyone, even to those who have none or have little. But I do dislike blind devotion and fanaticism.
 
 I mean there is more than one tribe that believes God is a log and they have had divine inspiration for tales and prophets to deliver them prophecies also. Who is to say they are wrong?
 
 Also how come Buddhism appeared in Asia (where warrior meditation was an old practice) and not in Europe? How come the family/clan heavy Islam appeared in Asia Minor in tribal war territory and not in Africa. How come the log worshipping religion appeared in untamed Africa and not in America? How come the sunworshipping Aztec religion appeared in an area situated on the Equator and not in Greenland? Divine inspiration or natural selection. It is all a matter of opinion and belief and nothing points to one being more true than another.
 
 This last paragraph is of course a very simplified point of view.

 Got some new complaints today.
 
 People who believe they are supernatural creatures, such as vampires, elves and whatnots. I mean it's like believing you are a ghost or that you can fly or that you own a spaceship or that you can walk through walls, when all you'll do is bump your nose on the wall and fall on your ass. What is up with that?!
 
 And Sanguinarians! I'm not sure they believe they are vampires or if they just drink others peoples blood as a hobby.
 
 And finally people who get off on pain. That freaks me out beyond measure and plainly scares me.

 Here's a question:  What freaks you out more, Masochists (lovers of pain) or sadists (lovers of giving pain)?
 
 For me, I'd have to go with Masochists.

                Put them both in one body, give em an electric screwdriver, and the problem is solved.
 
 Anyway.
 
 There are two kind of deluded (insert fandom here) followers as far as I'm concerned. The sort that dress up as a knight, jedi, wookie or something, and stand in lines in front of a theater for a week, and the sort that carry a sword around town, file thair teeth to resemble fangs or name their kids Galadriel (sic). I haven't got beef with LARPers, but when you wear your chainmail to the mall, I'm lawfuly obliged to make fun of your insane ass.
 
 The first bunch can be annoying, but is pretty much harmless (unless you make the mistake of starting a disscussion with one, why the star wars movies were silly).
 
 The second should be incarcarated. Mostly those naming their kids retarded names. Shooting your (equally deluded) friend in the leg with an arrow is one thing - he knew what he was risking being friends with a lunatic. Forcing your kid to go through life as Yoda Kowalski is another.
 
 My little cousin is named after an Indian tribe. And she's a girl. :shudder:

 Here's an answer. I've got no beef with masochists. It's their problem what they do to themselves. Sadists, though involve other people too so that freaks me out more.

 No kidding.  LARPers get such a bad rap, but quite frankly, some of them deserve it.  Last I checked, the idea was to collectively tell a horror story in real-time.  People who forget about "telling a story" and who focus more on "pretending I'm undead, which makes me special" need to get a fuckin' life.

                I'm gonna have to complain about fonts with only letters and numbers in! I can't stand it, when I try to make a banner for my site and it ends up as: Paine s Site, I want the fucking apostrophe! Then I have to use a different font that doesn't look as good and I end up not doing anything because it doesn't look the way I want it to. I hate assholes who don't add every character to their fonts.

 I have to complain about Queensryche deciding not to make Operation:Mindcrime 2. The first one was to date my favorite concept album of all time. I used to listen to it over and over as a teen, picking up something new with every listen. Now it seems they are getting old an lacking creativity, actually blaming Bush being re-elected for lack of creative ideas as posten on their website. I was actually considering the purchase of a new album from them and now they've blown it, as well as my hopes for some great new music. You must be used to obscurity by now Queensryche, time to build a home there Fuckers!

                New gripe.
 
 I've been "watching" MTV for a while today (yeah, I know, my own fault, WTF was I thinking watching f*ken MTV anyway) while doing some sketching and a show called "exposed" (I think that's what it was called) came up. Now, I don't normally get all worked up by the retardedness that's on in TV, But WHAT. THE. FUCK. ?. !.
 
 (In case you're not familar with the show - or it's actually called something else - it's basically a compilation of paparazzi videos of different celebrities in private, going shopping, eating at restaurants, catching a movie, whatever, you get the picture.)
 
 Now since when do we ENCOURAGE stalking? Since when is it commendable to sit around in someone's garden in some bushes and record a person taking a sunbath? I know, I know, that's hardly a new development, but for crying out loud, showing that sh*t on TV? What's the effing purpose? Aren't shows like Big Brother, Survivor and the like enough to get by for all those brainwashed people who'd rather watch someone else's life on TV that get a life of their own?
 
 Grrrrr.
 
 The moral of the story is - do not watch f*ken MTV.

                Has anyone else noticed things like air freshener or candles being scented like the air "after the rain"?  Has anyone ever actually smelled the air after it rains?  
 
 IT SMELLS LIKE DEAD FISH!
   
 Where in the hell do you get the idea that the air smells good after it rains?

 Good moral, that. MTV is probably someone's attempt at world domination. Seems to work quite well so far, with a few exceptions. I'm told that once upon a time MTV actually showed music videos one could like, but unfortunately I was a bit on the young side during that brief period.

 Strange. I always thought it smells of Ozone. Dead fish have never entered my mind.
 
 What's the pollution level where you live, Grendel?
 
 Now, on to more important matters, which are of cource matters which have to do with me. I have a test this week, a midsemesterial on one of my cources, and my kind proffessor has removed every single test he had ever written from our studential test bank.
 
 Which means my chances at doing this test well are pretty low. Damn bastard.

 The smell you are sensing is something called "fresh air". A luxury for some.
 
 All the air pollution gets forced to ground level and real, breathable air is all that you can feel. Lovely.

                The pollution level out here is actually pretty low, all I know is the air after the rain smells like fish.  I should say it smells like fish and not dead fish, it has that same aroma.  It's bad in either case.

 Actually, I think he's been dead for years. There's a few cardinals on hand usually to pull the strings - literally.
 
 Anyway, in that age old post I said to watch his shadow because he was a Lasombra ghoul - Lasombra have obtenebration.

 I think it's justified, well us Brits think that pretty much all Americans are slack-jawed murderous idiots, with more guns than brains.
 
 I'm not saying that's my view, so no threats, but I think there are quite a few too many of them in the good ol' US of A tho'.

 Tip of the iceberg.
 
 Body sprays are my favourite in regards to such slogans. Depending on your tastes you can choose to smell like "Wild rain" (a wet animal, I guess), "Cool water" (oooh, I get to smell like cold water, yay for me) or "Tropical storm" (apparently rainstorms in the tropical area smell like dish cleaner).
 
 And there's soooo many more. Truly, the nostrils boggle.
 
 If that's anatomically possible, that is.

 Interesting story about the Bible, too, no holy man I have ever encountered will tell me who brought the stories together.  The Rev. Billy Graham tells everyone that God wrote it.  Either no one knows anymore, or no one will admit that a mere mortal did it.</quote>
 
 I suppose I might qualify as a "holy man" (whatever that means), and if that is the question you want answered then you have to answer a question first.  Do you want a scholarly answer or a religious one?
 
 Roman gave you the more common religious one.  However, it is generally accepted by scholars (who include a great many "holy "men and women) that there were at least four authors of the Torah and that it is a composite and redacted text.  Generally we call them J, P, E and D, and there may be as many as three P's and four D's.

 Pick up a Bible and read it.  Each book should have a short preface that tells you who wrote it, when, where, etc.  For example, the second book of the Kings was written by Samuel, and the book of the Hebrews was (like most of the New Testament) written as a letter from Paul to a select group of people.  This information is not at all difficult to find, and anybody who says otherwise is either lazy, ignorant, or subversive in the extreme.</quote>
 
 Except that even the books that have prefaces (not all do) don't always have accurate or honest prefaces.  Many books are composites and others have been redacted much later in order to fit into new ideas - such as Revelation.

 I concluded that there are certain texts that are written by people for people, to facilitate regularisation of society, at the time and in the place as the text was written.

 
 A not unreasonable conclusion.  In point of fact, some of those texts rather clearly state (the Holiness Code comes to mind) the reason for their injunctions.  Again, as I just posted there is a general scholarly acceptance that the Bible is a composite and redacted text.

 I should have said "Reverend" instead of "Holy Man", Reverend because it is the accepted label used for Christian ministers, no matter what the sect.  (For one thing, two of the Pastors at my church whom I asked for this information were women.  Apparently I'm a sexist pig.)

 Will you take it from a Rabbi rather than a Reverend?  If it makes you more comfortable, you could call me Chaplain instead. happy   To be fair, most Christian seminaries do not engage in deep scholarly study of the Bible or critical analysis and certainly not how to present it to congregants.
 
 No worries.  I've been a Bible geek for a very, very long time so I'm always happy to talk about it.

 Oh yeah, deadlines suck.  Especially when you procrastinate as a religion.  Then when the deadline is coming up you can't blame anybody but yourself.  Nothing is worse than not having a scapegoat.
 
 I also really hate teachers who deduct your grades for missing class.  I know what classes I have to attend regularly to get good grades, and even if I didn't, my scores would suffer from lack of attendance anyway, so what's so wrong about sleeping in or doing something else?  Basically I think some teachers know their students could show up only for tests and pass their class, so they force us to come to make themselves not obsolete.
 
 Damn, I'm a whiny little b*tch today.

 Missing classes, urk. Tell me about it, story of my life really. As far as I was concerned you're supposed to attend classes in order to graduate them, not ATTEND CLASSES JUST FOR THE SAKE OF ATTENDING CLASSES. Especially when they deal in things I'm neither interested in nor will I reqiure, but I've already bitched about that in the first post here.
 
 Anyway, I strongly believe that as long as you can pass all the required crap, missing a class or two, or a dozen, shouldn't be an issue.
 
 It appears however that the whole academic cadre is on a fundamentally contrary opinion in this matter.

                In high-school attending classes was obligatory and I can understand that, not much to be done about it. Although there were classes I could pass with my eyes closed, I had to attend nevertheless and it bugged the hell out of me. I am also a notorious late-comer. I haven't shown up on time for something in years (the only exception is dinner with my girlfriends parents, they're these prissy politician snobs, but she loves them so I make an effort). So my coming late to every class in school screwed my grades.
 
 Good thing about my current college (art-science and philosophy, if you care) is that there are no obligatory classes, except for seminaries, those are more or less a have-to. The only problem is that if you don't go then you miss out half of what you're supposed to learn, as books are great but they are rarely enough. So if you don't go you won't pass the exams.
 
 I need to complain about home-exams (nothing bad about them really, but me being a notorious late-comer, I always start working on them when it's too late and I hand them in WAY too late, long after deadline). So I guess I'll complain about me not getting to work on time.
 
 Now on to more complaints complaints. I want to complain about break-ups! They SUCK!
 
 And in the same vein I want to complain about ex-es. They suck too! Weird human feelings, man. Bad mojo!

                I have a complaint, and I hope it's not just me.   People who don't put a new roll of paper in the holder when they use the last piece.  Come on, how much harder is it, to throw the old cardboard away, and stick the new one on instead of just setting it by the toilet?  (And I'm talking about at home, not at public ones where you sometimes can't because they lock up the rolls.  What do they think someone's going to steal toilet paper?)

                I don't think it's that the toilet paper will get stolen, it's that little shits like to throw it around or soak it and throw it at walls.
 
 Oh yeah and the Rasmus (hah), what a joke! Did anyone see them at the Reading festival they got bottled off after the first few songs, 50 Cent did too! I was at Leeds, so didn't have the chance to see either running off stage in a a hail of piss-filled bottles.

 You must not live in a trashy enough place, like I do.  People always steal toilet paper.  My Grandma ran a resaurant and she actually had to put a locked toilet paper roll up to stop people from stealing it.  It happened at all the other public restrooms, too.

 The only reason I mentioned that one was because someone, left the seat up at home. And when I got home from work, about one in the morning, I was being nice and not turning lights on so I didn't wake him up since he had to be up for his job in a few hours.  Yes that's right, I made a pitstop before crawling into bed, and fell in.   And ended up waking my husband up taking a shower.  Next time I'm not being nice, the lights are going on! lol.

                People who feel the need to drive slower then the posted speed limit on the interstate. I mean it says 65mph. But these people think it says 40 to 50mph. What so hard about push that gas pedal more to speed up? And they wonder why people are passing them.

 People who freak out when you leave the toilet seat up!  It isn't that hard to raise or lower the seat as you need it.  If it's up, put it down - it's just that easy!

 Blame the government for that one. A lot of the time those people are pensioners who can't afford (or believe they can't afford) a speeding fine. They've then heard about the +-10% adjustment/defect that some speedos have (or can get after a while) and think that 10% translates into 10km. So they go slow as buggery to avoid a ticket. There have been instances around here where the slow driver has been pulled over by the coppers for holding everyone up.
 
 I have a problem with drivers who don't realise they're not supposed to speed up while someone's overtaking them.

 I have only gotten one speeding ticket th whole time I have been driving. I still feel to this day I should have not gotten that ticket. The cop was on a dirt bike on the interstate and was not dress like a normal CHP officer (This was in Calfiorna I was around 20 I think) So thinking it was a normal person I passed the guy doing 100mph then to my surprise I got pulled over. Most over my other driving tickets where for dumb reason's like hitting a patch of black ice and heading off into a ditch with a moving truck. I don't drink so I don't have any DUI's.

                Long rant:
 
 I hate it when people put it upon themselves to decide what's best for you. One more discussion of "you should get married", and "you should quit your job and get a better one" from anyone and I'm going to start shooting. Granted I'm already at a good age to get married and my job's isn't the best salarywise but I enjoy what I'm doing and I just can't see myself tying the knot at a forseeable future. Family, relatives and friends are always suspect to this. I hate family gatherings because they'd always drill you with the same stupid conversation; "a couple of your cousins'are already married and/or with x children...blah,blah,blah". I often grow weary talking to my mother because almost any conversation we have, she always finds a way to stir the conversation to my current work and how she can't stand seeing me for another few years in my job. My job's completely legit by the way. One time a close friend of mine actually went to our house at 6:00 a.m. in the morning during my day-off (I usually wake up at around 10:00 a.m.)just to tell me there's a job opening that he thinks I'd fit in. Being a good friend and all, I allowed him to drag me to the company which turns out to be the same company that I turned down.
 
 It would have been alright if I actually asked for any of their help which I didn't but that never stopped them from assuming what I need and I don't need.

 Give the woman a prize. And what about friends setting you up with their friends? Eh? Single people, back me up here - blind dates are helping no one at all.
 
 Ever had that conversation with one of your friends over the phone?:
 
 you: Hello?
 they: Hey [insert name], how's it going? Wanna go see [insert movie] tomorrow evening?
 you: Well, ok, sure. Who else is coming, by the way?
 they: Oh... me, my [girlfriend/boyfriend] and, y'know, just some people *cough*, y'know.
 you: (warily) Uhuh, yeah. This isn't another attempt at hooking me up with someone, is it?
 they: Umm... sorrygottagonowsowe'llseeyoutommorowbye! (click)
 
 I can appreciate the effort, in theory, but the "we're not taking a "no" as an answer" attitude is getting real old real fast. Thought we were past those antiquitated conventions stating that everyone absolutely has to find their "soulmate" by the time they graduate already. If you do, good for you, but I'm cool. Thanky you but no, thank you.

 The girlfriend has as a goal in life to match up all single people we know. She figures that if she was lucky enough to find a really great guy (*cough*cough*) so could others. And because they are her friends she knows what works and what doesn't. So far we've made 3 couples and they are still together. Yay, us!
 
 ...hmm now that I think about it, 4 couples. That would be my ex-boss and his ex-girlfriend... it wasn't pretty...

 Break-ups, oh God, I broke up with a girlfriend a while ago by phone (I know I'm a coward, but I just couldn't tell her to her face) then she begged me to come over, she started asking me what was wrong and whatever, I just told her that I was incredibly screwed up at that moment and that it wasn't her. The next day she texted me wanting to meet up again, I didn't reply, and again she texted me asking for us to get back together, that she 'wanted to make another go of it'. I thought 'what?! I broke up with you!' Again, I never replied, several days later, she begun to cry and apparently didn't stop for several months. I went to a party, a few months after,  and she was there, I didn't speak to her and I walked into a room looking for the vodka only to see her head in her friend's lap, blubbing away. Me being drunk at the time asked why the hell I was being ordered to get out NOW. I saw her laid on the floor and thought 'Oh my God!' Well that was the worst break up of my life, thank you for listening!

                I also hate the apparent lack of PC RPGs this year. Discounting MMORPGs, let's see there were KotOR 2 & Freedom Force vs. The Third Reich already and what games are in the horizon? The Bard's Tale, Dungeon Siege 2, The Witcher, Fable(?), Dungeon Lords, Gothic 3(?), The Fall: Last Days of Gaia(?). I'm not sure if Fable, Gothic & The Fall would even make it this year so what does that leave us? Not much. I have nothing against hack & slash RPGs (I'm not going into debate whether they are true RPGs or not) they're enjoyable and all but what about Baldur's Gate-length, complex RPGs with actual storyline? What about strategic, turn-based combat? Oh I'm not discounting First Person RPG here.

 True, although Restricted Area is coming out next month. You should try the demo over on GameSpot.
 
 For Traditional RPG's it seems we'll have to wait for KOTOR 3 and NWN 2.

 I hate it when people put it upon themselves to decide what's best for you.

 
 Additional to this: those who think that they have the right to decide what I can and can't do or see. I hate these prudish do-gooders that tell me how I should present my website, or cut out bits from movies that I can decide over for myself. I know how to use the telly's on/off switch dammit! I'm old enough to make my own choices on viewing and listening and gaming material thanks very much.
 
 I have nothing at all against other people's beliefs and moral viewpoints - as long as they don't try to force them upon me. They can believe what they want, but I'd like just to be left alone - if I want to run a website of adult art and fiction, that's my business, not theirs.

 LOL! Might *I* make a suggestion about YOUR site? Could you please remove sexual annuendo and blood and please add small pink hearts along the borders and religious context in the explanation boxes and if you could change the layout and colorscheme of YOUR site, to something more similar to the CareBears annual Pookapoo Party, *I* would like that very much.
 
 Teeeheeee, couldn't resist! I can see this before me right now... haha! Do you actually respond to them Slof?

                I am SO lazy.
 
 "No shit" you're thinking probably, "Welcome to the club" and all that. But seriously, I'm so lazy I irritate the living hell out of myself even.
 
 I've an Finances exam in about three hours from now. Needles to say, I've barely got a clue what's what. But do I read up? Nooo, I'd rather post a complaint about how lazy I am. I take free from work today to study, and DO I study? Eh?
 
 I swear, if I saw my laziness walking down the street I'd kick it's f'kcu'ing ass. To quote Monty Python's "dirty fork" sketch: "And I hate it I hate it, I hate it I hate it!".
 
 Oh well. C'est la vie.

 No. I just ignore them and continue as I am doing. I like the darker side of things, I like flesh and sex and all that stuff. My sister is the girly one, into kids and teddies, I'm the dark one (even with my white skin lol!), much to the dismay of my family. Do I care? No. I can't change how I am, nor do I want to!

 Ah, the finals debate! Pity I can`t join in. So I`ll just agree with Slof, DON`T FKUCING TELL ME WHAT TO DO/WATCH/LISTEN/CREATE. I will kill you. [not really, but I`ll be VERY annoyed.)
 
 Complaint: Neighbours telling you to 'turn down that racket, or else!' As if I care, and since when has Slayer been a 'racket' I find them soothing. That`s it, I`m off to listen to 'GOD HATES US ALL' at FULL volume. Enjoy yourselves.

 Hehe.
 
 And what about people telling you that roleplaying is for kids and you should really act your age (like what does that mean anyway?). I've been hearing that for the last few years now, and I must say - It's starting to work. On my nerves that is. People ten years older than me still roleplay. And I effing hope I won't give it up just because someone said so, either.
 
 (I really mean that with adult folks rpg'ing, too. Not farther than maybe two weeks ago, thanks to a novel I had with me I found out one of my professors is actually playing Vampire. Not only that, she's been playing almost since the game got released here. And she's married, with kids too. Now that is effing devotion, huh.
 
 Though talking with your prof about vampires and what parts of the country would be controlled by the Camarilla was somewhat awkward. Bah! Fuck it, who cares. I'm going to start listening to her lectures now, who knows, I might learn something after all.)

 You're never too old - I'm probably older than the majority on this forum and I still enjoy roleplaying, and will continue to do so while ever my mind is my own. Anyone who tells me roleplaying is just for kids is given my mid-digit and told to swivel. happy

                I never even got to roleplay until I got to college.  My town was tiny and full of small-minded people.  Remember the big hullaballoo when Dungeons and Dragons was supposed to be a tool of satanic worship?  Everyone believed that in my town.  Including my parents, who were usually such rational people.  So you can imagine the gaskets a game like Vampire would have blown.
 
 I'm not saying I was the lone goth/geek in Podunk, but my friends were not the roleplaying type.  And I had dial-up with limited minutes, so using the internet was pretty much out.  And trying to collect comic books in a town that doesn't sell them?  Don't even get me started.

 Another new gripe (i have an endless supply of these)
 
 Senior and Junior level classes at my university that are only worth 2 credits.  WTF?!  They're harder, but worth less, does anyone understand this?  Almost all of my Freshmen classes were worth 3 credits.
 
 2 credits means I have to take more classes to ensure I get the minimum amount of credits I need to recieve Finacial Aid, thus cutting back my working hours, which means I have less money and a larger work load.  Grrr...

 I have a complaint. Our country's (not America) legal system. A guy (who happens to be a lawyer) runs over someone and drives off, leaving them to dien and gets a $3000 fine - no prison sentence. Another guy who was the head of a major company lies to his investors while the company goes bankrupt and gets 2 years prison. What the hell???? Hope the local media chases this story like the last time something stupid like this happened.

                The other incident was a rich kid (20 something) who shot a newspaper delivery guy in the eye with a gun imparing him for life. The kid was found not guilty even though he'd done it and the witnesses said so etc etc. The Premier had to step in after being hounded by the local media. That kid is in jail now I think.
 
 There's another recent one of a Judge falling asleep during a child abuse/rape case (during the kid's testimony I might add) and being all grumpy when he was woken up.
 
 People should come live down here - you can get away with murder as long as you say you're on drugs/drunk and not in the right frame of mind, so long as you don't cheat investors.

 That's not the case.  Compared to one a person of similar skills and experience earns in the private sector, people in politics make very little.  Many of the people on the Hill are paid well below the poverty line and substantially less than they could earn elsewhere.

 They had some school kids from over here watch a political debate in the house of representatives or whatever it is - and they said it was like their school playground.
 
 Some bloke's trying to say something, and the opposition are going: "yeah right mate" etc etc "you're a big bedwetting old doodie head!" No wonder everything's so screwed.
 
 Another got caught playing solitaire on a laptop. When someone comes along to shake the boat they make sure they're gone by the end of the day, and if another is meaning well (giving special favours to get more jobs into the area) and is booted out for it, they kick him when he's down. Seems like the country is run by spoilt little kids.

                Sorry about your friends, Psy.
 
 Now, to take it back to a less serious gripe...
 
 This working for a living shit sucks.  I'm all tired and I have to get up tomorrow and do it again.
 
 A look into the future:  Grendel recieves his paycheck on Thursday, Grendel forgets about his gripe.  Grendel spends his money on BlackJack and Hookers, and Grendel is pleased.  
 
 Then Grendel's money is gone.  The cycle repeats.
 
 I'd also like to complain about people who post in the 3rd person.

 Very promising. I suspect my own future will be similar exept I will spend my money on movies/books instead of hookers. I can't play Blackjack.
 
 And Psybernetic,
 I'm so sorry for you. I lost my cousin a while back but two friends at the same time must really be terrible.
 Take care.

 I don't mind it in games like heroes of might and magic, age of wonders, moo2 and the like. But it doesn't belong in games like jagged alliance and close combat (those were the last ones I played before I decided I hated that style of play).

 I heard mixed things about that game.  I might try renting it for my X-box some time, see if I like it or not.
 
 I tolerated turn-based in KOTOR, but I just can't stand it right now.  I understand it balances out a game, and I understand the need for hitpoints, those make sense to me, but in reality, in an actual fight, who waits a turn?  (And how the hell would you miss a radscorpion when you're standing right next to it?)  Ah, it's just a petty gripe.  If I wasn't so into the Fallout story I would just walk away.

                I'd just like to make a complaint about how Australians are portrayed in American TV shows. A lot of the time they're played by British actors (NOTE TO TV EXECs - Yes we can tell!!! Not many here that I know the give a fat rats about the queen etc *cough* JAG - that guy was from New Zealand). I was actually quite impressed with E - he sounds like a genuine beach bum from the gold coast happy

                Yeah, yeah. Stereotypes are wrong most of the time. We get it. Give it a rest.
 
 Complaint: cell phone "statistic data retrieval". Notice how sometimes your cell phone will send out a short signal without apparent reason. Ever wondered why? Also - phone companies keeping tabs on your bills and bothering you with "special, personalized offers to lower YOUR costs." Insolent mofos.
 
 My point: phone companies = eeevil.

                I'm getting an tooth implant, to replace one knocked out by my brother about 10 years ago.  So they put the root of the implant, a titanium bolt screwed into my upper jaw (doesn't hurt, surprisingly) and then put a temporary tooth on that until the bone around the root fuses with it.  So here's the complaint:  Until I get the permanent in August, I can't bite my food, and it's hard to chew solid food.  I'm going friggin' nuts.

                Thanks for all your suggestions of revenge.  The rest of the night group and I fixed him..for some reason now from what day shift says he won't go near any of the slabs.  Hmm..wonder why. Hehehe.  Maybe because I dressed up as a real vampire (yes, I have those nice little stick on fangs and everything) and hid under a sheet on one of the slabs and a night where he had to work night shift for some reason.  (whistles innocently)When he went to process the body (me)I opened my eyes and went to bite him.  He screamed, peed his pants, and has never touched anybodies stuff since it happened.

 How about never, ever being able to run, go skiing, ride a bicycle, go hiking alone and stand on your knees for the rest of your earthbound existance because of a dual kneecap injury? I limp all the time and it keeps getting worse!
 I'll probably end up in a wheelchair before hitting fourty!

 At least if that does happen, you could get one of those help worker guys to boss around. Ever thought about kneecap replacement? My left 'cap is metal, as is part of my right wrist.

 It has to do with the muscles around the knees getting serverly weakened and nothing exept exersice can "fix" that to get rid of the pain and not even that will completely fix it.
 Everytime the weather gets moist I can feel it like being stabbed in my knees and people stare at the limping freak. Kids laugh, old people whisper and the people in between mock me! I hate my legs!
 
 However, the idea of my own personal slave is interesting...

 Not always, some are fully clothed until processed. Depends on if they were dead when they were found or the EMS or hospital cut the clothes off to resesitate or try to treat the person. But never mind I'm not at work so I don't need to go into details, but no I wasn't naked.

 I don't mind getting up for those that are considered "Frail Aged", but I have a problem with those that do that and are "only just over the hill and nearly half way down it". They seem to have the idea that they can tell people younger than them where to sit and how loud their headphones should be etc etc. I heard some old lady telling some kid off on the back seat of the bus for something and all he was doing was sitting there listening to his music. Granted I only heard half of the conversation (the loud and abusive bit)but there's really no need for it.

                Living as far up north as I do the summers are short and a time to savour. Even though I'm a night person by nature I still enjoy the warm breeze and sunny skies of summertime days. This brings me to my problem. As my title suggests (I actually do tan eventually but it takes way too long and some serious precaution) I can't spend as much time outside as I'd like when the opportunity arises and it pisses me off!

 Was outside painting a shed with my shirt off, thought I had plenty of sunscreen on, but apparently not.  Doesn't hurt yet, but it will, and then it's gonna itch like crazy.  I do this to myself every summer.

 I second that - after just 5 mins max in the sun, I now have a totally burnt and blistered face. This blights me every summer - I can cover the rest of me up, but I still need to see! The blisters are just the pits. This is why I rarely go out during the day - the irony of it. sad

 A complaint/ rant I need to get off my chest...
 
 I was telling a friend that she should play Bloodlines because it's a cool game.  
 A guy jumps into the conversation: 'That game is lame.'  And he rolls his eyes at me.  
 So I tell him, 'Okay, fair enough, but I enjoyed it.'  I thought this was a fairly polite response considering I wasn't talking to him in the first place.  
 And he starts mumbling about how I don't know anything about gaming, I'm not a 'gamer' like he is, and that the only games worth playing are Warcraft and blah, blah, blah.  He ended up being a jerk about the whole thing and kept bringing it up all night. Grrrrr.  
 So I'm not a 'gamer' - does this mean my opinion doesn't count for anything??  Surely, if I don't play a lot of games, and I enjoyed this one enough to play it over and over again, it says something fairly positive about the game?  I never claimed to be an expert.  I just said that I thought Bloodlines was a cool game.  Did I do something to offend him and not realise?  I give up!
 
 Oh, and to the sunburn sufferers, my sympathies.  I turn into a crispy critter as well in bright light...

 I've been playing games since Commodore 64s were around and I thought Bloodlines was great, didn't like Warcraft3 so much (it was good and all, but I'm bored/past RTS type games to the point where I won't buy them anymore - seems to be getting that way with FPS too) and I'm not into online play - does that make me any less a gamer?.
 
 I bet if you said you liked Planescape Torment or the BG series and similar games, he would have told you the same thing - not sounding like he's the type to play games that require choice and higher brain function. I'll bet he's a LEET dribbler too. Also sounds like he's been sucked in by commercialism - to be considered a gamer you have to play popular games. I'll bet he's never even played Bloodlines and is going on a review he read (if he reads anything other than LEET speak).
 
 Anyway, Ignore him, so long as you play games more than occasionally you can be called a gamer if you wish - not that anything special (like real world respect) would come with being called a gamer. It is a form of entertainment/escapism after all.

 The fact that he even made the statement would mean that he had already "soiled his pure gamer soul" by playing it so by his definitions he is not a true "Gamer" either.
 
 Unless he judged the game from it's cover by passing it at the store which just makes him ignorant.

 The only lame thing about the situation is the attitude of guy you were talking to. But then again, do you really care if you're labeled as a 'gamer' or not? There is more to you than the games you play, yes? I say screw him and his superior attitude!

 I don't really care what he thought of me, just pissed me off that he felt like he could judge me for making an offhand comment about a computer game!  Like you pointed out, what an attitude!

 The only lame thing about the situation is the attitude of guy you were talking to. But then again, do you really care if you're labeled as a 'gamer' or not? There is more to you than the games you play, yes? I say screw him and his superior attitude!

 
 
 I second that.  On the other hand I don't happen to own a copy of Bloodlines for more than one reason; namely the fact my comp isn't good enough to handle it and I would have prefered a multiplayer mode where roleplay was possible as opposed to the death match stuff.  But as for this jerk I say screw him.

                This one is going to sound kinda elitarian...
 
 Complaint: this forum rapidly going downhill in terms of worthwhile discussions. It seems as if every second thread nowadays is either a already answered bug/cheat-related-question or something that would better fit find-a-buddy-dot-com than Planet Vampire. Less and less reason to log on here, I can easily see why so many people left.
 
 peace
 
 ps. before you go and tell me to leave too and be done with it, consider this *is* the complaint thread, the sole purpose of which is to bitch about stuff. I'd know. I started it.

 I'm not sure if we're complaining about the forum for the same reason, but I am finding it harder to go into the General Discussion or Games in Progress anymore.  It seems like we've been deluged with flamers, lamers, and spammers.
 
   I still like the Off Topic section, and of course Interactive Storyboard, but I've been looking for a new forum to waste my time in.

 Hehe, yeah.
 
 Thing is, the nature of my work has me sitting in front of a desk, acting a secretary pretty much the entire day. Because of this, I find myself having short but frequent periods of free time waiting for the next task, customer or call, in which I'm usually bored out of my *goddamned* mind.
 
 The only thing keeping me from jabbing a pencil through my hand just for something to do is this forum, but lately - as Grendel said - loging on to the General or in Progress forums is just so pointless... I need to develop some psychic skills to keep me occupied or something...
 
 Oh, and complaint: the website of the local Ministry of Infrastructure being broken since this morning. It has a exclusive service we need to acces today, and it's just a no-go. It's a f*cking government page, how can it NOT WORK?
 
 Arrrgh.

 Well, I don't know the specifics of your situation, but some men just don't like jewelry.  And if you do physical labor where you're working with your hands a lot, wearing a ring can get in the way.

 I second that! Nearly lost a finger once because my ring got jammed under something. (And no, it wasn`t a wedding ring).
 
 could wear a wedding ring round your neck though.

                ok, let me rephrase that.  I understand not wearing one at work if it's a hazard, that doesn't bother me.  What bother's me is someone who has worn one for over ten years, then suddenly stops wearing it whenever he goes out by himself. Is that better?

                Major gripe:
 
 Know that situation when you're coming home late, so late that's in fact already *early*, and you're trying to be as quiet as possible to not wake anyone up? Talking stealth:10 here.
 
 BUT THEN. But then, that goddamned door, which works absolutely quiet during the day mind you, goes "SCREEEEEEEE" as if there was no tomorrow. But then, that glass on the edge of the counter falls down when you pass it even tough you *didn't touch it*. But then, even the fucking water piping makes a noise all of a sudden.
 
 Wrrr. Either this place is haunted or I suck bad at being stealthy.

 My worst pet peeve is people who want to start a conversation with me while I'm trying to use the bathroom. The other day I finished with a customer who said he would have to let his wife decide if he could get a printer or not. I thought this was a good time to go take care of business. I went into the restroom stall and sat down and got comfortable when the customer came into the restroom and started talking to me through the wall of the stall about the printer specs again! He must have seen me walk into the restroom and thought it was entirely appropriate to talk to me when I was taking a #2! Can you believe this motherfucking prick? I didn't lose my cool, though I wanted to implant his head into the sink. I used my two-way radio to page someone to get the printer for the customer and he thanked me. I wanted to end his life right there... WTF?

                New Complaint: TV channels thinking you'd rather sit there for an hour or more listening to people talking about the recent 'package' in the underground, regurgitating the same crap that should've taken 5 mins to tell everyone rather than watch the movie you were in the middle of watching on that channel (I'm talking abou the one they found a few hours ago).

                My boss is so annoying! I had a copy of a fitness magazine on mydesk which I was reading (since there was no work to be done at the moment). The title of the magazine is called "Shape". When he flipped it to the front and saw the title, he snorted but didn't comment. *rolls eyes* I can't belueve how irritating it is! Just a stupid little snort.
 I shouldn't get upset but you have no idea how even something like that can be so annoying because of what it implies! He probably did that because he thought it was some silly women's thing to be reading a magazine called Shape.
 
 In short, he's such an old-fashioned chauvinistic old man and I hate him!!!! *growls*

 Plus he hit me with a glass bottle, that`s when I punched, it was self defence for fucks sake!

 Ah, the police round here are thick as shit.
 I only hit him once, not my fault I hit like a 'sledgehammer' as it was described to me.
 As if I`d let the fool run off with something that cost me the best part of six months wages.
 
 They phoned about five miutes ago, the guy admitted what he was planning, and they had to apologise, but I still get a 'warning' for the damage I did.

Now the girlfriends mother lives in Iwoa. THey left and the cops came and where about to take me and my wife to jail over something we did not even do.

                Geez, for a moment there I thought we were almost never gonna see you again, Dante!
 
 I can't believe he broke a glass bottle on you. Man that is extreme! He must be really desperate, and a damn idiot.
 
 And as an aside note, I wish I could punch like that but unfortunately my wrists are about 2-3 inches across even though I've got biceps I'm happy about, so I lack any great strength.

 You don`t need strength, just force, if you ever need to (I hope it never happens) just swing your arm as fast and loosely as possible, but keep your hand in a fist shape, pretend your swinging a bat one handed, you`d be surpised.
 
 Bottles are nothing, I`ve had worse CL knows what I`m talking about. (Softball anyone?)

 If you intend to break your own arm, yes, that is the way to go about it. As "loosely as possible", hmph. Sure, you'll probably connect, swinging like a madman, but how's that supposed to do any damage with the *side* of your fist?

 Ok Lancea, maybe it wasn`t worded quite right, but I didn`t mean swing like a madman, one focused swing, directed at the target, keeping the elbow flexable.
 Wish I could post a short clip to show what I mean.  
 
 and I didn`t mean the side, you knuckles sould still be the connecting area of your hand.
 
 (The closest example I can think of right now is from Blade, Frost hitting Whistler in the warehouse, he swings his arm in a loose manner to gain more force behind his hit.)

 I hate about 80 percent of my generation, each one of those stupid irresponsible -oh look, my sms-message is on tv I'm a fucking rockstar now-pricks.
 
 I hate about 90 percent of everything that's on tv and how it is single handedly killing intelligence everywhere.
 Especially those goddamn reality-shows like big brother, I mean that program is just wrong man! Most people just dismiss it as being very stupid (which it is) but putting nine morons in a house, locking them up together and then broadcasting their lives to everyone like some goddamn zoo is just WRONG man.
 
 And then there's Idols (or pop-idol or American Idol or whatever it's called in your country) I come from a family of artists, my mother is an actress, my stepfather is a musician and my aunt is a singer (who used to be quite well known in my country)and I know for a fact that if you want to be a good performer you have to work your way from the ground up, you have to perform in the small bars and nightclubs, you have to do the small gigs, it's a trial by fire that every artist has to go through if he wants to be respectable.
 What you do NOT do is pick up a few idiots off the street and say:"Hey you sing pretty good, how would you like to be a popstar?"
 
 It's an insult to the trade, that's what it is!
 
 And I don't know what depresses me more, the fact that these shows are being made or the fact that they're so popular.

 As for car tuners, in all fairness, the "dick extension" analogy isn't all that accurate, since there are female tuners as well. Hell, I know a hardcore one myself.
 
 Complaint: Electronic devices giving up the ghost soon after their warranty expires. Hate it. That's one particular trend in technology I care absolutely nothing for. I mean shit, at least have the decency to make it last a month or two longer than that. Hate the system. Cammy!

                Well then you might find this amusing:  my new TV stoped working right after the warrenty expired (color went drastically off - everyone was green).  So I'm screwed right?  
 
 Except that last week I got a letter from Circuit City asking me if I wanted to extend my warrenty!!!  Heh heh, why yes I would!  I figure I'll wait a week or 2 more to let the paper work go through their system then I'll call up about my TV problem.

 Had one of those around the neighbourhood. He tried to burn his car for the insurance money. Dumb prick burned himself in the process too. God, I laughed a whole week over that.

                My complaint is against people who make broad generalizations, and hold the crimes of some (or more) against all.
 
 I'm a weekend tuner. My current fun car is a Fiero that has a Chevy 350 V8 put in, and a beefed up transmission.
 
 I seriously dislike rap music. And I only play my music loud in places that I know no one can hear it. Or use headphones.
 
 Oh. And I have no problems with the size of my penis. I just enjoy going fast, even in my Towncar. (Those things can get up and go with a little work to the transmissions!)Plus, I enjoy working with my hands, it's something I'm getting good at, and is a nice change from my daily computer job. So, there ya go.

 There's more to it than what's on the radio nowadays (which, admittedly, is crap). So practice what you preach and don't generalise it yourself.
 
 <quote by="Trinten">I just enjoy going fast

 
 Now, while I got no beef with the aforementioned tuners, since one of my close friends is *all* about her car, people who make the city streets their private race track are mindless nitwits who need their faces kicked in. Nothing against driving fast per se, but innocent people died around here recently because of cretins who just *had* to show off.

 Oh, and I'm with you too Vongetta.  People having loud personal cell phone conversations (with details I really didn't want to hear) or the people with no singing talent who sing out the song on their CD (thereby negating the act of them wearing headphones) are people who need to be thrown from the train.

                Everyone had a good day? So glad for you. Not.
 
 Our washing machine decided it'd be fun to boil the water today, and mess up the laundry, which obviously was a ton of laughs at 7 A.M.
 
 So I'm two hours late for work, and there's one a motherfucker of a hassle today, but luckily our service provider shut off net access due to some maintenance crap, so things won't get too boring.
 
 So what do I need? I need coffee. I even manage to make one, but then I get distracted talking, and miss (unbeknownst to me) my only opportunity to drink it. For the next, oh say, two hours I'm so wrapped up I can't do it. And I knew it was standing there, getting cold and taunting me.
 
 So I stayed at work till past 6 P.M., and to make it perfect my cellphone's battery went empty on me, so I couldn't cancel the appointment I've had (supposed to have) after work. Cuz, like, who'd carry a charger with them, right?
 
 But hey, we did get a reservation at a SPA for the next weekend, so it's all good. Only 8 days and 7 hours of this day-to-day bullshit to go.
 
 Hehe, beware thursday the 11th, I tell you.

                I hate it when people transforms a non-political thread into multiple paragraph-length diatribe on how fucked up *insert government/country here* political system is. I was at IMDB looking at the Suspect Zer0 threads then bam!, a thread frothing with American-bashing and Eurotrash hating crap. WTF? What's up with people nowadays? Everybody's a political analyst. It's a goddamn popcorn movie and the whole topic just blew out of proportion.
 
 Aside from that I hate my own stupidity. Last night I was using this ointment as my calf muscles was so sore and somehow as I was scratching my ass some of the ointment dripped on my uhh...chocolate starfish...and I can't begin to describe the searing pain. God that hurts. A lot. I got pwned.

                My complaints:
 1) I hate it when people feed you nothing but bullshit, and when you ask them to tell the truth about said bullshit, they lie and make up more. Even though you KNOW they're lying.
 2) I hate it when I'm in an elevator heading to the very top floor of a very tall building... and the ASSHOLE in the elevator with me has to press every single button so we stop on all ten million floors on the way up. (Never get in an elevator with someone who is obviously more insane than you are.)
 3) I hate it when people hurt you and then have the balls to ask you what's wrong.
 4) I hate it when you feel like you can trust someone with your life only to find out that they'd rather take it.
 5) I hate it when I get stuck in the middle of political disputes of any kind.
 6) I hate it when I'm identified by my last name... and people assume that I'm some rebellious trouble maker.
 7) I hate it when others try to decide what's in my best interest when they're really only looking out for their own...
 There's more but I think I'm complaining too much, even for a complaint board.

 Spending a huge amount of mone on one single day is in my opinion lunacy. Better to settle with proclaiming the love one has for the other in privacy instead of wasting moolah on food that will be thrown away, flowers that will die within days and so on.
 
 Saving that amount for later would be so much better for everyone involved but sadly, many people have this image of a perfect wedding with all kinds of crazy stuff...

 Ok new complaint:  Is anybody else as annoyed with the Damned fantasy football add that opens up to overlay the text as I am?  Do they really think theirs a lot of Fantasy football fans on this board?

 
 Yes!
 I am extremely annoyed by this.
 Then again, they gotta pay the bills I guess.

                My best friends are going off to university on saturday and tonight was the last night I will spend with them. I hate the fact that life doesn't stop when you're having the greatest time.
 I might get comments of 'get over it' or whatever, but I've lost friends before, it's just this time, I'm actually so upset about it. I've never had a better time than I've had this summer with them guys. I'm a bit drunk so I might be rambling.
 I guess I wanna say that life (in general) sucks.

 No interest in reading it, no interest in seeing the movies.

 Spending a huge amount of mone on one single day is in my opinion lunacy. Better to settle with proclaiming the love one has for the other in privacy instead of wasting moolah on food that will be thrown away, flowers that will die within days and so on.
 
 Saving that amount for later would be so much better for everyone involved but sadly, many people have this image of a perfect wedding with all kinds of crazy stuff...

 
 My sister just got married recently. After all of the cash-gifts, they came out about $300 ahead after all of the wedding expenses on the bottom line. (they got about 14k total). You're right. My wife-to-be would have to be pretty darn special to go through what I've seen my sister and my mom go through (my mom is on husband #4 now).
 
 I was the lucky one to be wedding/reception coordinator and make sure my mom kept her nose out of my sisters intents and plans for the wedding and reception. Ugh.

 Microsoft releases/has released Sudeki, Dungeon Siege 2 and Fable: The Lost Chapters. Now we don't want Microsoft to sell well so they monopolize even more than they have already monopolized, but on the other hand we want cRPG-s to sell well so companies start investing in it again and make new cRPG-s. What a fucked up situation!

 I know exactly what you're going through.  I myself am worried about the future as my skills have aged and my contract is in danger at this job.  They're spending umteen million dollars to replace the system I support and the new system is from a competitor so unemployment looms large in my future.  I fear it.  I've been fired before and survived before but I'm older now and more afraid than before.
 
 New complaint - friends confessing things you don't want to know but you're close enough to this friend that you don't feel right not listening.  I've been friends with this guy longer than most of you have been alive (met him 37 years ago) and I don't want to know about his marital issues.  I like his wife and love his kids and the thought of them going through a divource tears me up.  I don't want to know but I must.

                PC games coming out on CDROM's.  That's it.  I've had enough.  Does anyone who plays games not have a DVD-Rom?  Didn't those become standard back in '98?  Don't the system requirements of the newest games necessitate a computer that has at least been upgraded in the last few years?  
 
 Bloodlines and Bloodrayne 2 came out on all these annoying cd's, while GTA:SA and Advent Rising came out on a single disk, and it was nice and neat, and I didn't lose disk #2.

                Ok I'd like to compain about incompetent, obstructionist, beaureucrats!
 
 The US government fiscal year runs from Oct 1st thru Sept 30th but some nimrod fucking put the ending date of my contract as Sept 28th.  That means I get to take the 29th and 30th off without pay.  And the jackasses are giving us problems on the next fiscal year's contract so I might lose even more pay.  
 
 And the worst part is they NEED me!  I have 2 emergancy fixes that HAVE to be in before the end of the fiscal year (Oct 1st).  But you know what?  I'm not motivated.  Fuck em.  If I manage to finish them before COB tomorrow then fine but fuck em right up the ass if they think I'm going to work for free.  The money's been alocated and they need me and the only reason I can't work is combination of incompitence and power games between two competing area's inside the Dept. of Labor.
 
 Again, let me state from heart of me bottom, FUCK EM!

                Have to complain about uninstallation processes that delete the saves. Usually I make a backup of my saves before uninstalling things and most of the time "good" programs ask you at the uninstallation screen if you want to keep you profiles and saves. But a certain game, too evil to be named here, had the saves hardcoded into the program so there was nothing I could backup and it didn't ask if I wanted to keep my saves. It just uninstalled everything from my comp. Mutherfu**ers! I had spent at least 15 gaming-hours (5 days) to get where I was...

                I once played that city-building game Pharaoh for 3 days straight, only getting up to eat and take my showers, and when I finally caved in to a flu bout, I had a fever and actually dreamt that I was building pyramids on a time schedule. I actually got frantic and when I woke up and told my mum that I had to build pyramids...pyramids...LOL I was pretty feverish then!

 Attacked? That sounds rather worrying, Dante. Is your neighbourhood the rough sort or is it just an isolated thing?
 
 I wish sometimes I was a female in a male body, because, as they say - hell hath no fury like a woman in a rage. With that, I'm sure my fists could go pretty far. But I'm pretty much stuck in this helpless body.

                It's a frocking 34 degrees out today (farenheit) with the windchill.  Time to turn on the damn heat.
 
 I also just got back from a class I haven't been too most of the semester.  As it turns out, our midterm was today.  So yeah, failed that.  Now I have a paper due and only a few hours to tweak it.
 
 The morning started out so well, too.  Got up at 6 for my run, it was really peaceful, dark, you could hear the wind blowing through the trees (cold as a bitch, but that's beside the point), reminded me of those old hunting trips Dad took me on.  Then all my responsibilities crashed down.

 I don't know if anyone could relate to this but something always happens to me that makes simple things complicated.
 
 Case in point: I just bought a motherboard that I took back to the shop because the tech forgot a jumper switch somewhere which I myself didn't see (installation is free so I let them install it on my PC).If it isn't a jumper then it's something else. This always happens to me when I'm buying parts for my PC. Another example, I've been paying my social security now for almost three years then a year ago I received a letter that my SSS no. is wrong. It turns out they mistyped the 9 in my ID with a 4 but even if it was their blunder I'm the one who has to brave the inumerable beaureucratic red tape. Another one, I filled out a form for a seminar/training on animation held by the very company I was applying to (I was to be a clean-up artist, its an entry position but what the hell) but somebody fucked up and lost mine. I was waiting for nothing and I only knew what happened because my contact in the company called me three months later and asking why I passed it. Even in college whenever there's a graded recitation in which I didn't study, it's as sure as the sun would rise tomorrow that I'm the first one that would be called out. If it isn't someone screwing it up for me, I'd forget something and screw it for myself like when I'm so sure I had everything I need for an out of town vacation then I forget to bring my cellphone but then I thought what the hell it's just for only two days then along the way  our car brakes down and we desperately need the cell and everybody's else's is either low-charge already or there's no signal. God that sucks and things like these happens to me on a regular basis.

 Yeah, direct links to certain files come up fine, but when you try to get to the main page just to browse an ad gets in the way.  Was trying to download System Shock 2 patches and mods and couldn't get to them until I found a direct link on IGN.

 Ditto. I need to go to bed now to be at work by 9am but if I lay down now my body will rest but my mind will continue.

 If you believe the guy at this seminar everyone at work had to go to, that means you've got a chemical problem with your body (Melatonin or something) - not eating correctly? I don't believe any of that crap but we got half a day off to go to it.

 I'm going to bed now but I'll tell you I take 4 benadryl and 5 melatonin nightly to sleep. I'm a light sleeper...

 I never had much luck with melatonin.
 
 I'm a chronic insomniac.
 I used to take L-Tryptophan and found it to be highly effective, but it was banned for OTC sales in the late 1980's due to a tainted batch.
 You can now buy it online though.
 
 Valerian (from which Valium is derived) also works for me and can be purchased in most health food stores.

                Insomnia would probably be a blessing to me. I'm having difficulty trying not to fall asleep everytime. They say when you grow old you tend to sleep less but not in my case, most of the time I'm fighting the urge to sleep even at work. Even if I do get a 8-10 hours worth of good sleep I'm still awfully sleepy the next day. I'm not sure what's wrong with me or maybe I'm just lazy or something.

 Sometimes I get insomniac too. Lying in the bed, I try to stop my mind, so I reach the state of empty brain. Often I can do it, then I get asleep seconds thereafter.

                Uh, oh.  I recognize a pattern here!  I to have a very hard time getting to sleep and staying asleep.  Reading for a half hour sometimes helps, other times making sure my sugar isn't high/low fixes the issue.  The one thing I don't do is take medicines for sleeping because I find them addicting and they make what sleep I get worthless.

 That's exactly why I take benedryl and melatonin, because it's not addictive. I used to just have problems staying asleep and would wake up like 5 times every night. Now I can't fall asleep without it and if I adjust 1 pill less I won't stay asleep. Valium is extremely addictive, my mother was addicted to it during her pregnancy with me. Tryptophan is good, I always look forward to Thanksgiving turkey. It helps me sleep through the visitation with my annoying psychotic relatives that I'm supposed to be somehow thankful for.

 Valium is extracted from Valerian root and then 'beefed up'.
 Valerian, in it's native form, is not the least bit addictive.
 
 Having used both over the years, I am very much aware of the addictive nature of Valium.
 Odd that it is still so widely prescribed.
 But, yeah, if a doctor ever offers it to you, run, do not walk, in the opposite direction.
 
 I had to withdraw from it once and it was one of the most miserable experiences of my life - panic attacks, chronic anxiety and insomnia, depression...
 And what's worse is that, unlike Heroin even, it takes MONTHS to leave your system.

 In all honesty, that fight left me feeling rather horrid. I think it was unnecessary, but...what can I say? I'm generally peaceful but strike me and I'll strike back if it hurts enough.
 
 Now the forum tastes rather bitter...or maybe it's just me being grouchy about my truckload of work...*shuffles off mumbling to herself*

 Who is CR and what fight are you talking about? I've been away too, so I haven't kept up to date. Seems I missed a thing or two.
 
 At first I thought you were referring to g. bush, but you haven't got rid of him yet, so it couldn't be. Then I thought you meant Paris Hilt. but she's still around too, so now I'm totally confused about this CR fight thing.

 I was gone because of a contract *hiccup* at work.  For no reason at the busiest time of the year the people at procurment decided it would be fun to drag their feet on a new contract and so I lost 2 weeks work and pay.  This upset me greatly and I drank lots and bellyached to RL friends a lot.  
 
 I don't know what crawled up CR ass in that thread - he only seemed slightly annoying before hand.  And I'll never understand the mind set of people who will actually go out of their way to post usless insults.  Even in my MMORPG I have time to cool down by the time I've typed and I always just delete instead of posting an insult.

 Reminds me of when my first shrink (don't see one any longer) was going to test my blood for lithium levels when I started throwing his furniture at him and threw his files everywhere. I didn't care for needles much. Didn't see him again after that, poor guy. I was 14.

 Today I went into work this morning in plain clothes even though I'm on a mini-vacation. I went in early to tie up a few loose ends with customers but I was still there when the doors opened for business. Even though I was in street clothes, customers were approaching me, demanding help. I guess I should be grateful that I have a loyal following at my store but they should have realised I wasn't in uniform or clean-shaven for a reason and left me alone. One of them even tried to joke with me about it being laundry day. Oh well, Friday I'm off to Morgantown, WV to see my dad so I'll take my aggression out on the cars I'll be speeding by.

 Complaint, people trying to steal the things I make from the shop I work at. (I make furniture).
 
 He staggers in, grabs a small hall table, and tries to walk out right past my workspace (with me in plain veiw inside) and the main sales office. What a fucking retard, I took the item from him, asked him to leave, and he goes mental saying I`m the one trying to steal it. All the time this is happening, I`m in my work uniform, clearly labelled and the boss behind me telling me to eject him from the premises, which I did, 20 minutes later, the front window is smashed, and I have to clear it up.

                Here's a complaint:Last night me and three of my friends got completely drunk on vodka, one of them thought it would be a good idea to take a walk around the neighbourhood and because we are in no condition to argue we all agree. But after walking around for a bit we get our fucking asses kicked by about ten (probably also drunk or stoned)wiggers who thought it would be good sport to attack four harmless drunks who they outnumber two to one. Thank god some of them weren't as far gone and could restrain some of the others so we could get away.

 I guess I was trying to explain it to Vong in terms of my
 younger days when alchohol made me violent.
 
 Now I just tend to listen to my old records and get all melancholy.
 And I did post a poem - Everyone hated it!!

 Is there a scientific explanation as to the relation between men and alcohol and why it makes them want to start a fight?

 
 Well, in the european hobby-electronics magazine "Elektuur" there was an article titled somehow about "Brachions". The article said new atomic particles were discovered and named "Brachions" for causing aggressivity in people; further it was written, that alcohol contains very high concentration of these particles.
 
 Too bad it was an April joke.

 Sorry if it got misinterpreted, Adrian. I wasn't referring to you. And I know for a fact, you're one of the nice guys, so don't try to say you are anything else.

 Well, it was more of a 'post whatever the fuck you want' thread.
 I posted one of my poems, but I had to remove the quotes that i used in the original, and that pretty much hosed it.
 Bad choice on my part.
 Feel free to post to it, though.

 I didn't get to greet her either, since she hasn't posted yet.

                Right, whatever.
 
 Complaint: The contract we've been working on for almost  the entire two last weeks has went up in smoke, because of a cretinous notary. Poof, gone - nothing, nada, nic, nichts, niczewoj.
 
 It's not even the money (that we won't be getting) which makes me want to scream till the windows start cracking, it's knowing that the whole amount of work adds up to sqare jack in the end. AND I've missed out on classes that I'll have to catch up on in my Free. Fucking. Time. Yippie, doesn't get any better.

                I loathe businesses with the name of the town that they are in as part of their title. What’s worse is when the business is actually located on a road named after the town. When this happens, that single name appears three times. I refuse to go to such places. A few examples (with some data changed to protect the guilty):
 
 Rockford Cineplex
 1649 Rockford Drive
 Rockford, IL 61107
 
 Eugene Mini-Mart

 Eugene, OR 97404

                My job requires that I ask for the last names of the people I talk to. Some people don't like giving their last names and become very hostile by the simple question. Others, however, are willing to give a last name. And although I'm thankful for their cooperation, I sometimes want to hit them for not offering the spellings of their tongue twisting utterance. Here's an example:
 
 [me] Who am I speaking with?
 
 [customer] Steve, that's S-t-e-v-e.
 
 [me] And Steve may I get a last name?
 
 [cust] Sure it's Kieliszewski.
 
 [me] ...
 
 (time passes with silence as my blood boils from hearing the 64th person of the day feel the need to spell a name common enough that any second grader could not only spell it using manuscript but also in cursive and then have the balls to spit out some alien sounding gibberish like everyone should just know how the fuck to spell it)
 
 [me] ...Steve, can I get you to spell your last name please?
 
 [puzzled Steve] My last name?
 
 It's usually around this point that I jab a pen into my eye. For some reason I've compiled a short list of last names of people who did not see fit to offer the spelling of their last name. A few of these might look easy enough, but I assure you that even the simple looking ones had dubious pronunciations.
 
 Masanimptewa, Kieliszewski, Sollance, Concannon, Psihogios, Sweatman, Chilakapati, Petoyan, Palumbo, Piepho, Scambray, Fundament, Zullo, Winmpsheimer, Narsinghani, Hackstaff, Villalobos, Seay, Higares, Gabon, Junewick, Finkelberg, Agopian, Passa, Elmeligui, Pandaraoan, Ferranti, Bowlby, Lisk, Skielnik, Wendorf, Feliciano, Tabor, Macomber, Enochs, Ligon, Droszcz, Dhillon, Alonge, Rekoay, Rahimi, Cancelliere, Konopka, Sempertegui, Siefken, Morcate, Frangiskakis, Trilikis, Yanagawa, Yendamroong, Giangiacomo, Aubuchon, Naberezny, Przychocki, Saenguraiporn, Jeurink

                I feel ya, Entropy.
 
 I don't understand why the hell all the big bosses of a company have to sit behind their employees. They all sit in a row (in their own open cubicles) behind us. So whenever my boss needs to discuss something or hand me materials for a project, he comes up to me. Now the thing is my boss walks very quietly, even for a tall lanky man. So I'm doing my work and suddenly a voice behind me appears and sometimes I literally jump out of my seat! Fucking hell!!! I got so desperate I even brought a little compact mirror to place on my desk to see whoever walks by, but it doesn't help.
 I swear that ever since I joined the company, my nervousness has just gone up and I have serious trouble relaxing.

 There are occasions when it is good to have a manager sit behind an employee, not like you described however. When we "interview" an employee who is suspected of stealing, we have one manager sit in front asking questions and the other sitting behind the employee and adding info. This intimidates the person into giving away through body language if they did it. Then it's just a matter of time before they spill the beans (if they did it).

                Don't say that, CL! Rather you had both legs than hobbling about on one.
 
 Today one of the cleaning ladies in our building informed me that there's a peeping-tom for the ladie's toilet. Apparently a girl from the office a few paces away from this toilet caught a man leaving it as she came out after doing her 'business'. I told this to my colleague who then told me that she once saw this man snucked into the toilet and crouching down to peek under the doors.
 *shivers in disgust* Creepy! We're all on our guards now.

                The "Enter" button keeps getting stuck on my keyboard.  
 
 I had a test yesterday that I had completely forgot about.
 
 I am currently getting ready to go to work and the freaking sun isn't even up yet, and won't be for a few hours.

                Not really a complaint but a strange situation. Can't really explain without telling the story, just read on.
 
 I went to play bridge at friend's house but he didn't have a table. We discussed playing it on the floor but it wouldn't work so we played Trivial Pursuit, on the floor instead. I wooped their asses, goes without saying. But this girl lying to my left and reading me my questions was continuosly staring at my crotch under the whole game. I caught her doing it several times.
 At first I thought my fly was down or something, but I checked and everything was in order. It was strange.
 I thought that, that was how girls feel when us guys stare at their cleavage. Although that's another discussion entirely - because you girls are making a conscious choice of showing your chest, pretty much inviting looks and then get annoyed when someone looks. I was wearing fricken jeans so I wasn't... doing anything.
 Now why would she stare at my, thing? Weird.

 No snow.
 
 I live near the goddamn north pole and no snow yet?!
 All I get is rain, rain and some frost once in a while.
 Personally, I blame global warming. When I was little, we had snow everywhere by the beginnig of November and sometimes even in mid October and it really was everywhere!
 I'm used to snow to the degree that what the government calls a crisis, I call just right.
 No, I'm not a crackhead but I know I'm posting shit with little to no grammar bit that leads me to my other complaint: Messed up sleeping habits! My brain feels like jelly and I can't think straight. I woke up at 01:12 in the morning only to be declared clinically dead five minutes later. Up and down the charts sleeping for five minutes at a time until I reached my normal wakeupcall.
 Then, I notice in the newspaper that yet ANOTHER realityshow has popped up and I felt my precious IQ melting away just by reading the article on how some fat slob had been degrading his fellow humans and he had gotten popular from it too! The columnist called the guy "delightfully non-swedish" due to his straightforward, piggish personality. Is this were everything is going? Has the time come where we idolize the scum of society and elevate vermin to divinity?! Fuck that! I'm going back to sleep. Hopefully, I'll wake up in the middle of the night with no one around so I can know some measure of peace...

 *just giggles*
 
 When I was younger, I used to look at guys' crotches too. And butts. But that was a time when I was younger and a whole lot more active, with raging hormones and such.
 
 Still....it's good to know we can make men squirmingly uncomfortable too...
 
 My complaint for the day:
 I was on the train earlier and I saw the cutest butch!!!! She sat diagonally across from me with her friend (who wasn't butch but was gorgeous too). She was the thin sort of female and her short hair was cut like a boy's, only she gelled it up so that it stood up along one side...very rakish!!! She sat with her legs open the way a guy normally does, and she was wearing a generic T-shirt with jeans and some brown sneakers, but she has this slightly androgynous look...swoon-worthy!!
 Before she got off the train, she looked at me and I SHOULDN'T HAVE LOWERED MY EYES AFTER GLANCING AT HER! WHY OH WHY DID I LOOK AWAY!!

 Maybe it's because you're a french love-god with a huge schlong that she couldn't keep her eyes off? wink  Ok, I'll give you a break...
 
 My complaint is that Oblivion was pushed to feb 2006. On the other hand it gives me more time to do other, more useful stuff.
 
 As much as snow is concerned, I don't really miss snow or winter that much, I froze my butt off when in army and I kinda developed a dislike against all cold conditions.

 Complaint, my Boss demanding I make another 30-something Jewellry boxes, just because he saw one I was doing in my lunch hour. As if I wasn`t busy enough what with one store closing and all the stock needing moved to the other one.
 (which BTW, hasn`t got enough room yet).
 
 This is a supreme waste of my time, as I am the only one that knows A). What we have in stock, and B). Where it belongs in  the storage area.
 
 we`re short-staffed, overworked and underpaid.
 And I`m very pissed off.
 
 (If anyone is interested, I made this, designed from an old stock ordered piece we never sold off, excuse the backdrop, showroom display).

 Nice Box, Dante. Hey, can you make me one at your lunch hour? Maybe with a small mirror in it and dark-red interior?
 Just kidding.
 
 So, what I hate is when I need the computer at home, most of the times my brother is already using it. We only have one so we have to share it. Or I'm playing a game and he has to send an urgent E-mail. It just drives me crazy. But I'm not really complaining. I mean, he's my brother.

 It looks lovely, Dante. Although I'm curious as to why you make Chinese lacquer-boxes in the West. I was imagining that the boxes you made were European-influenced...design and all. Not that I'm complaining, just curious!

 Your hooked on the endorphnies released when you eat them.
 
 Ok, this is a genreal complaint about Atlanta: why is everyone  in the service industries down there such a fuck up?  Aside from the meals that were planned for the wedding itself (my Debutant cousan got married) EVERY single meal I had while in Atlanta had the order screwed up.  From a supposedly fine resteraunt even to the Micky D's EVERY single time I had to tell them that I didn't get what I ordered.  What the hell is wrong with these people?

                My new neighbors are obnoxiously loud.  Even when they're not fighting/partying/fucking (hard to tell the difference, sometimes) I can hear them doing shit like washing the dishes.  I mean, seriously, the wall is insulated, and I can hear it every time a plate clangs against the sink.
 
 Tonight they had some big throwdown over there and my wall shook several times as they slammed doors and stomped around.  
 
 Shit, they're still at it!  I'm gonna call the cops, I think.

 I think it was the time frame that you were in Atlanta that was the cause of your problems.
 
 I mean I live here and eat out frequently and things are generally fine.
 Except this weekend, I was eating at O'Charlies and ordered my steak medium and it came out well done.
 Usually I don't like to make a scene but this was ultra-dry, I could tell it was super well done before I even cut into it.
 Thankfully the manager took it off our bill while bringing out another steak, this time undercooked.
 The coconut shrimp were good though.
 Maybe the food industry had some kind of secret strike or something.
 
 And about the football thing, as much as I hate to admit it because usually it's like a nice buffer, Atlanta is in the South.

                Why can't people think a little?
 
 I take our garbage cans out to the curb every week, but usually the gardeners or someone else brings the empty cans back.  But they always bring them back with the handle facing towards the wall instead of out, so I have to spin the damn things around when they are full of garbage, rather than the people taking half a second to turn the empty can around when they put it there.
 
 The housekeeper has been borrowing my vacuum cleaner to vacuum the house for over a year now, and every time she winds the cord incorrectly so the attachments on the back won't stay on.  This isn't brain surgery, this is winding a cord on an appliance the way it is designed to go, and this is a person who cleans for a living!
 
 Petty complaints?  Sure.  But they happen again and again and it is about something that barely requires thought for me, but seems to be beyond other people's mental capacity.

 Actually petty complaints are my favorites,
 
 and while we're on the subject what is so damned hard about making a new pot of coffee when you empty it rather than letting the pot burn up on the burner? I work in a resteraunt and tonight I had a cusomer that had to wait about 10 minutes for a cup of decaf because I had another customer before him who wanted regular and I had to make both pots because someone emptied the regular and just left the pot there to fry on the burner.....not the end of the world but very irritating especially since its become the norm rather than the exception lately

 I too have usually gotten good service in Atlanta it just astounded me how bad it was this time.  And yeah I know its the South and college football is a religeon down there.  
 
 Another complaint about Atlanta - why do they have roads where the lanes can shift about so much?  I get on the highway (75 North of the city) and get into the 3rd lane over and 2 miles down the road its an exit only lane all the way over on the right.  These highways lose and gain lanes contantly and if you're not alert you're going to end up leaving the road before you're ready.

    We have big issues with our service down here right now, not the best time to out to eat, but considering more than half our resteraunts were wiped out and the ones left are understaffed and 3 times as busy as normal we're faring rather well. If you go out to eat here between 6 and 9pm right now you can expect a 30 minute to 2 hr wait no matter what day of the week, and then it's pot luck depending on if they could get enough employees to work to handle the business that night or not

 Imagine turning your kneecap around just enough for you to get legs like a horse. I know it's physically impossible but it happened anyway. To both of them.
 Now I have a hard time walking, running and standing.

 I'm from niether Atlanta nor Nawlins. I'm from Mississpi one of the lesser publicized Katrina casualties. Alot of our resteraunts were along the beach in and outside of the casinos if you haven't happened to see the pictures of Mississpi's gulf coats it's pretty much a wasteland.

 It's interesting to note in spite of things Best Buy has managed to open a new (albeit temporary ....{they're building a bigger one]) store in Gulfport where untill now they have only had circuit city. I have to admire them for managing to get it off the ground even when every place in town is desperate for employees. (not too mention thrilled to have a Best Buy closer than an hr from home!!!

 Allow me to offer my sympathies.  I am aware that Missisippi got hit harder than New Oleans and yet didn't loot or riot or whine about needing hundreds of billions of dollars.  It's a shame that you're being ignored while incompetent idiots like Mayor Nagin keep getting headlines - even after he made racist comments about Mexicans.  Guess its good to be a Demoncrat.

     We expected it would be that way if New Orleans got it as bad or worse than us, after all it's huge and makes more interesting news than a string of smaller cities. They certainly did get it worse even though their damage was more secondary, where ours was directly from the storm itself.

     I'm frankly not that impressed either with Lousianna's governor. I heard less out of her during the immediate aftermath than any other official involved. The one time I did see her on the news she refused to take the podium untill she was properly anounced.

    The response (local government) and clean up efforts here have been almost inspirational, people here really pulled together and helped each other, which gives people like me a reason to stay even after such a disaster....

 I've actually abandoned the Rebubakin party when they:
 
 a.  Abandoned fiscal restraint and raised the budget more in 4 years than Clinton did in 8.
 b.  Indulged in an offensive war that didn't need to be fought.
 c.  Violated the civil rights of Jose Padilla.  An American Citizen arrested in the United States was denied ALL OF HIS RIGHTS and held incogneto without charges for 4 years.
 d.  Turned government into something to be feared.
 
 There used to be politicians that I respected or even liked in both parties.  Senator Paul Wellstone was a great man (even if completely disagreed with him) who honestly wanted to make this country better.  That travesty of a funeral/political rally made me retch.  Senator Phil Graham was another one I respected but he retired.  The only ones I can think of in either party that are worthy of respect are Senator Joe Lieberman and a few Republican representatives that are fighting against what Bush has become.  I guess that makes me a anarchist/libertarian.
 
 Umm... somewhere in that rant is a complaint so its on topic.

 He cheated about two and a half years ago..we worked it out blah, blah, blah.  Then when we went to the reunion this last few weeks (the girl lives in the town where the reunion was at) he was gone for over four hours to the store..didn't think anything of it at the time since he suppossedly hadn't spoken to her in years.  But on the way back home from the reunion the phone kept ringing with the same number which he wouldn't answer..well we both knew who it was, and I wanted to know why she was calling.  Then I got the phone bill yesterday...he had been calling her for a few weeks before we left and talking for at least half an hour at a time.  Bastard.

    Sleeping with someone might fall under the instinct category. Carrying on an ongoing relaionship (seeing or talking to them regularly) is definately a little more premeditated.

 I hate that kind of shit.
 
 EDITED for complaint:
 
 Fucking assholes trying to break into my home.
 Unluckily for them, I was home.
 
 This is less then twenty minutes ago.
 
 I`m sitting watching a DVD, and I hear my door opening, which is odd because I locked it earlier. I go out into the hall, then my bedroom and find two fuckwits attempting to lift the very computer I`m typing this on.
 
 Needless to say, I wasn`t very happy and took this oppertunity to vent a lot of suppressed anger, one escaped, the other didn`t, I left him lying out in the street, tied to a streetlight. Let me check a second...
 
 Yep, still there, hope someone robs him. Fucker.
 
 I feel right going out there and beating the shit out of him, but I won`t that`s too obvious, I`ll leave him there.
 
 Just thought I`d post this up, now I`ll get back to my story, feel free to critisze my actions, but I`m very protective of my property, and I hate theives. (this one had a needle on him, made me even more pissed, I`m sure some of you know my stance on drug using).
 
 Hope he fucking freezes out there.

 Yeah, you'd probably normally call me a bleeding heart liberal, but I don't see anything wrong with what you did.  They broke into your place and you didn't kill them or even maim them.  I suppose you may have done some illegal things, but I don't see them is immoral, so it's all good.  I generally like to keep a baseball bat or sword in my bedroom just in case.

 Enthropy, I would have taken some pics if I had a camera, but I don`t at the moment, sorry.
 
 I really felt like throwing the bastard through my window (Long way down here).
 
 the guy was pretty fucked up when I left him, he`s gone though, so either his buddy saved him, or the police got him.
 Fuck him though, bet he won`t do that again in a damn hurry, not round here anyway.
 
 In the morning first thing I`m doing is making a stronger door and fitting a real solid lock.
 
 I`ve had a few drinks to calm me down now (nothing to strong though, don`t want to go looking for a fight), but I still think I should have smashed his head open... and as for the other one, I see him again, he`s fucked, right there and then.
 
 Anyway, looking at the responses, I seem to have done good, if the cops come a-caling, I`ll act dumb, say I never heard or seen anything. (Shouldn`t though, my flat is a little out of reach from street level).
 
 I`ll keep you posted.

 Like Quiller, I probably would be considered a
 bleeding-heart liberal, but damnit, don't invade my sacred space!
 That just crosses a line that ought not be crossed.
 Ever.
 
 My complaint is my lousy teeth (and i'm not even british!)
 
 I swear - I brush, I floss, I do all the stuff you're supposed to do and it makes no difference.
 
 My problem is I have this moler that's held in place by a post.
 It cracked at its base a couple weeks ago and now, every time I eat something, it just flops around in my mouth and goes 'click-clack' while i chew.
 Arghhh!
 I wish the fucker would just fall out!

 Depends if they have a shonky lawyer - A guy around here was on the roof of a house trying to break in and rob it. He fell through the skylight, sued the owners of the house and won. Another guy shot a postie in the eye and got off because he had a high priced lawyer - the only reason this guy's in jail now is because of public outcry.
 
 I think you did the right thing Dante - the Police wouldn't have done anything if you left it to them.

 Hence the almost part, but yeah crap like that really burns me up more and more the law protects the wrong people. Just like when people get off on drug charges or drug involved probabtion violations by crying addiction. Well I'm not saying they're not addicted but ummmm HELLO they had to do something illegal to even get addicted in the 1st place

 Maybe that's a good reason to legalize drugs.
 
 Let 'em have what they want.
 Let 'em lie in their own slop and be stoned and happy so

 I do agree with you on that one Adrian. The countries that have legalized drugs don't have near the drug problem we have. Doubt it will happen though, my mother who has never even so much as tried weed actually thinks it should be legalized (you shoulda seen my jaw drop when she let that cat out of the bag)

 To a certain extent I agree with a liberalization of drug laws but when its been tried before it hasn't been the panacea some people think:
 
 Needle Park in Zurich existed as an open air drug scene from 1986 until February 1992. Within this six year period the City Government, City Parliament, governmental and non-governmental organizations implemented a wide range of permissive and restrictive drug policies, from extensive harm reduction to closing the park. Police statistics and several studies suggest that tolerating an open air drug scene can have unforeseen and unfortunate consequences. Low drug prices, lack of law enforcement and lack of social control seem to attract drug users towards the open drug scene and the increase in problems appears to have been more rapid than the increase in the population of addicts.
 
 I recomend you look into the Zurich drug park experiment.  They started by allowing any and all drug use in the park and ended when they could no longer stand the crime.  It only took 6 years for them to have had enough.

 Well, there are many alternatives to our existing, and, IMO, failed policies.
 
 I think the needle park aproach has a two-fold problem;
 
 1) the supply side is left to the black market, which, by definition, is controled by criminals.
 
 2) It is a concentrated in one area.
 
 Now think about the synergy there;
 Essentially, you are saying 'Hey, criminal element, if you want to make a buck here's the place to go'!
 So of course, all sorts of sleazy people will concentrate in that one area and cause problems.
 
 I think if one were able to simply walk into a drug store and purchase what they want, you would remove the criminal element from the equation and avoid the problem of concentrating everything in one small area.
 
 Let's take a look at the relationship between drugs and crime.
 
 Basicaly, i think it can be broken down into several catagories.
 
 1) Crimes that people commit simply because they are under the influence of a substance.
 
 This is the biggie, the one that everyone points to as an arguement against legalization.
 One doesn't need to look much further than the guy who gets drunk, becomes agressive, and gets into a bar fight or beats on his wife to understand this problem.
 
 2) Crimes that people commit in order to obtain drugs.
 
 Well, this is directly related the falsely inflated prices, which are, in turn, directly related to to the black market that exists as a result of criminalization.
 When was the last time you heard of a wino breaking into someones home to get $1.50 for a bottle of port?
 
 3) Violent crimes related to the drug trade itself.
 
 Ever see Pulp Fiction?
 Just pretend that the suitcase was full of cocaine.
 'nuff said.
 
 4) Institutional corruption.
 
 Not a huge problem in the states, but we do hear stories of prison guards being bribed, cops on the take, etc.
 
 And we needn't look much futher than Mexico, where DEA agents are murdered and judges are kidnapped to understand the scope of this problem.
 
 I won't even talk about Columbia.
 
 I think that decriminalization would go a long way towards
 cleaning up problems 2 through 4.
 
 As far as the first problem goes, well, assholes will always be among us.
 If someone figures out a legislative soloution to that problem, I'm all ears.

                has anyone ever noticed how much life sucks, and wants to rape people, and why are most people idiot, opinionated, moronic (and why are the words "opinionated" and "moronic" constantly used in the same sentence - its called originality people! and why do people not think twice to do something or laugh at something old and cliche... anyway), and stupid, AND FOR THE LOVE OF GOD (or lack there-of), why am I stuck in a family of them!
 
 and where did bloodlines go wrong - its one of the most dissapointing game I can think of (right now anyway), not because of what it is, but because of what it could be.
 
 Don't get me wrong, I mean bloodlines is fucking (can I say that? and what is up with "swareing"? - ITS NOT THAT BAD! I'm sure it was harsh at one point (and I'm sure it was "crude") but as far as I see it, it has been used to the point where it lacks all if not most of its former meaning, and - for all those bible-bashing assholes that go to church - I don't know anywhere in the bible where it says you can'tuse any type of words, however if you directly insult someone verbally or otherwise you are in breach of the "love thy neighbours" commandment) awesome, but given another 6 months to a year and it would have been even better (it had too many bugs and too many loading screens, the endings were to similar (although some better than others), and WHERE WAS THE MULTIPLAYER?! redemption had the most awesome multiplayer ever, why couldnt they have done something like that, and I am aware that some guy working on it said that thye tried it and it didn't work blah blah - WHERE DID IT GO WRONG?! and how could it go wrong - its been done before), and where was the advertising?! I mean I live in new zealand so I dont know what happened elsewhere, but I learnt about bloodlines through word of mouth, and internet sites (like this one) - there was NO advertising.
 
 and why does new zealand feel it has to prove itself to the world - I mean whenever a new zealand person gets even remotely famous somewhere else in the world its like "OMFG!!!" - yeah, right...
 
 and why is this rant so bloodly long... wow, felt good to get that out, sorry to all who actually read and endured this crap, and despite what I said bloodlines is an awesome game...

 I'm not against a variety of legal reforms - for instance criminalizing canabis is as stupid as criminalizing alcohol.  I just feel that the nature of the beast should lead to thoughtful reforms and not just some spastic blanket movement like they tried in Zurich.  Remeber in the article I quoted they mentioned that the drugs were low cost and they still reached a point where the crime was too much.
 
 Leagalizing hard drugs is akin to allowing people to self medicate with all other drugs.  Feeling a little sick - shoot up an antibiotic (increasing the chance for resistant bacteria and ignoring that the real cause which might have nothing to do with bacteria in the first place).  Hard drugs can have dratic health consequences and people have shown that they can't control themselves.  Plus I find it hard to beleive that the health worshipping smoke-Nazi's (the actual Nazi's were the first ones to ban smoking in public places for fear of second hand smoke - look it up) would allow liberalization of hard drugs when they are fighting so hard to ban a weaker not as hurtful drug like tobacco.
 
 I know there is a better way to handle drugs that the way we do - I just don't know what it is.  A good first step though would be to leagalize canabis.

                I hate the flu.
 I don't get sick often. Thankfully. Like, once every three years, give or take a year. Occassionally some stomach issues, but that's stress induced.
 
 Unfortunately, when I get sick, I Get Sick. And it comes fast, hits hard, then slowly slinks away. You know how most people feel 'off' for a day or two before they get the flu or cold? Not me. I woke up Friday morning feeling fine, at 9am I had the sniffles, by 10:30 I was coughing out flem and my throat was itchy. By noon, I had a fever and was sneezing out flem rather often.
 
 So I got home, and have been taking three multivitamins a day, 1500 miligrams of Vitamin C every 3 hours, drinking orange juice, rinsing my mouth out with mouthwash, showering and changing clothes every 8 hours, drinking a mixture of 4 kinds of herbal tea, and drinking plenty of water since tea is a diuretic. Among all of the coughing out crap and sneezing/running nose, I also wound up throwing up flem twice from post-nasal drip.
 
 So Saturday I was feeling alot better, but couldn't talk because my throat was so raw from coughing crap up, and my nose and surrounding skin looks like like part of Freddy Kruegers face.
 
 Unfortunately, the crap has managed to move out of my head, and is now in my chest. So my nose isn't being abused anymore, but my chest and throat feel like... I ate a live grenade, and it's exploding in super-slow motion.
 
 In short. I HATE BEING SICK. It costs me time, and money... and money... and did I mention I'm losing money?

                Complaint - these little white streak snow storms.  Often in the middle Atlantic states we get these snow storms that are very thin in their area of effect - if you are within 10 miles of central storm track you will get 6 inches of snow but if you are 50 miles away you get nothing.  The problem is in this area 6 inches in one storm will shut everything down so you need to know where this darn thing is going and it ALWAYS fools the weather men.  At 11 last night it was going to hit DC by 6 this morning the track was south of DC and now it looks like the track is closer to Richmond.  In the mean while all the screaming mee-mees have made a run on peanut butter and white bread like a true noreaster was coming.  I find the whole thing quite vexing.

 Good point. It does piss me off, as far as a videogame can do that anyway, how many little, seemingly insignificant "glitches" there are in the game.

 No it fucking doesn't (*by stating that you don't find swearing particularily obscene earlier, with which I agree, I expect that you don't get offended now). The whole myth around Redemption's MP is so kindergarden. 90% of the time people were just standing around talking.

 Okay I could go through that point by point and refute it pretty successfully but it was a gerneralized staement there are exceptions to every rule when making a general statement like that one usually is not speaking about every single person who might fall into that category. That would be like saying I hate Mississippi drivers (which in general I do by the way) most of them don't know what's going on around them half the time, but some are very safe and courteous drivers.
 <code> </code>
 I will say this though right now around here if you don't have a job you either don't want one at all or don't want one bad enough to work in certain fields, because employers are so desperate right now all you need is the legal right to work in the US to get a job around here and I'm sure in some places not even that.
 <code> </code>
 
 In any event my problem is there are alot of people taking easy money right now while many others suffer from overwork, over stress, long lines in stores, long waits (long being a week, month more before it's even looked at) for car/appliance repairs and  a long list of services.

 Might as well complain while I`m here.
 
 My little sleepy comment up there was because I just woke up at home, from being in Hospital since this morning, they opened up my wrist to check the joint mechanism I mentioned somewhere, it was locking up, and now, I have a new one in, it`s working ok so far, I can tell because I`m using it to write this.
 
 My complaint? The fact that I have to check in with them every three weeks from now on, to make sure this doesn`t happen again. What this entails is them (docs) slicing open my wrist again, to poke around in there. Not bothered about any pain or anything, as I can`t feel that (nerve damage) it`s just a serious inconvienience (Sp?)
 
 Fuck this sucks.

 It's also pretty bad in the DC area when we have schools closing early because of the threat of an impending 6 inch snow storm. Supermarkets are flooded as people virtually retreat to their bomb shelters as if Armageddon is approaching from a storm producing fewer flakes than Carrot Top's dandruff.
 
 The Metro is still kinda cool to me because I worked for them when I was 15 in a summer youth employment program. I got to see how the place is run and meet undercover police who pose as passengers ect. It was a fun job and we got to ride the trains and busses free of charge whenever we felt like it.

 I meant a Geo Metro - it's an itty bitty car that gets 34mpg in the city and 50mpg on the highway even at the grand old age of 8.  I'm actually quite fond of it even though picking up women would be easier in a more spiffy car.

 Oh come on!  The dialog in that movie made me want to scream!
 
 "From my point of view it is you that is evil!"
 
 Why did Anakin say this?  It makes no sense, came out of no where (with no set up in the movie to reflect why he might think they were evil, Anakin was well aware of what he was and  why he was doing it).  And that's just one of the puerile lines in that movie.
 
 I'll admit the action was great and scenes beautiful.  The next time I watch it I will have the mute on.  This movie is like a gorgeous naked woman with an IQ of 70 and an annoying squeekie voice.

 The idiotic dialogue isn't only in the 3-d one it's all 3 of the prequels. The old ones are not far behind dialogue-wise but it was graced with better actors and different directors that actually could get actors to "act". As evidenced by the prequels GL can't direct someone to act if his life depended on it. Or he just doesn't give a shit and laughs all the way to the bank every time he has reason to go there.
 
 But as someone said, it's an sfx laden sci-fi action adventure, not Shakespeare...
 
 Although I would have preferred to see the Quentin Tarantino remake of Ep 3:
 
 WARNING Explicit Language
 
 Anakin: Obi-Wan you motherfucker! As I walk through the fucking valley of the shadow of the fucking Force I shall have no motherfucking feelings aside from those of hate towards you and that which you stand for! You are now my motherfucking enemy!
 
 Obi-Wan: Anakin you whiny little bitch! I shall jam this lightsaber through your skull if it is the last thing I fucking do! You were my main man, my bro! The Sith, you were supposed to fuck them up, not blow them... shit.

 I agree on every point.
 
   Just to point out that the 3rd prequal is more watchable than the first two.  The 1st one is a naked 80 year old hag with oozing leprosy sores.
 
  The second is that annoying uptight woman who believes that all men are rapist.  You only stay on a date hoping for a big payoff and boy do you get it.  When she finaly lets her hair down she transforms into a wild woman who practically rapes you.  When its all over you got a black eye a pronounced limp and a shit eating grin.

                Anybody see Genndy Tartakovsky's Star Wars: The Clone Wars cartoon?  Now there was an Anakin Skywalker who acted like a real hero, didn't whine, and felt like everything Anakin should have been.  Plus it had a General Grevious who was actually interesting, a little intimidating and not just a throwaway villain.  
 
 Seriously, George, when you're getting outdone by a 10 minute cartoon you should take a long, hard look at your storytelling skills.

 I just want to be free of this pain. Constant pain that rips my soul to shreds...
 Every waking hour is agony and I only know peace when I've just woken up. The moments before I remember why I'm feeling pain.
 Too bad I don't get much sleep anymore. You guessed it: Pain. Constant pain. I want to cry but I can't.
 Fuck it. Really fuck it.
 
 Appearantly we have a lot of suicides in this country.
 I'm beginning to see why...

 Curiously, I can actually relate to something Crazy said. Now if that doesn't bring Gehenna about, then I don't know what will.
 
 Here's a thing that won't cheer you up, but is a fact. The prolonged lack of sunlight usually gives people bad mood, but what most don't realize, is that fall/winter depressions are a serious illness, which can and - often do - lead to "drastic actions". See countries located closer to the polar region. Not much sun, a lot of depressions (in fact, according to an article I've read, the manic-depressive disorder originated in, uh, Finland?).
 
 The major suck in the whole situation is that very few of the unaffected realize just how serious the issue really is, and often work only to worsen the situation, by telling you to "get over it", or things to that end.
 
 And hey, I'd know, I've been there.
 
 There are medications you can take, which mostly either stimulate the brain to produce serotonin, which is your "happy hormone" (not really, but I've been waiting for an occasion to write "happy hormone" since I've first registered here) or provide synthesized substitutes for it, which is more effective but less healthy.
 
 Other way of dealing with severe winter-induced depressions are light threrapies, utilizing various UV lamps, which - while effective - have the drawback of making you look silly.
 
 Either way, noticing you have a problem is the first step towards solving it, and this is something that can be dealt with. In the words of Lyndon B Johnson: "We Shall Overcome".

 I find laughter is indeed the best medicine. Whenever I'm down I try to find something funny, no matter how simple or complex or completely peverse. Sometimes if I need a laugh I'll just fire up Google pictures and type random words to see what comes up. Jack Handey quotes are allways good for a chuckle. I'm intraverted by nature but I force myself into social situations because I understand being alone will only make things worse. If I see others are feeling down I also try to make them laugh, it's important that we don't take life so seriously at times.

 Can you get pain meds?
 
 Not the ideal solution perhaps, but I don't know
 the exact nature of your problem or if it is something that could be corrected via surgery or some form of physical therapy.
 
 I only know that many nations are completly back-asswards
 in their approach to pain management.
 They want you to grit your teeth and tough it out.
 Right.
 Easy for them to say.
 
 Some would disagree with me on this, but I think that even
 if you had to resort to the black market, that would be preferable to chronic, debilitating pain.
 
 Nobody should have to live that way.

 What article would that be? I don't think manic-depressive disorder 'originated' from Finland, it isn't that type of a disease. However, there's quite a lot of people in Finland who eat anti-depressants etc. but other countries like Great Britain eat even more. And yea, we don't have a lot of sunlight during the winter. But we do have snow and that kinda brings more light, the darkest period is usually in autumn before the snow has fallen on the ground. Coldest period, the one that I don't like, is from Jan. - March. And that shall be my complaint, I don't like the -35 degree Celsius temperatures.

 We're more into therapy than pills here.
 Unfortunatly, I can't afford that and the only way to get it cheap is to do something drastic and get "abducted" by the smiling men in white coats and that net.
 
 I'm pretty used to the dark so I don't know how I'd be affected by light therapy.
 Think Lasombra or Setite. Really. God, I'm nerdy...
 
 I have very little to laugh at and when I try I just feel worse. The things that used to make me happy only make me want to cry now.

 My advice is to keep up the good spirits. From what I hear in Sweden you have a pretty good social sector, if you are poor you should try to find out about special benefits that you might be entitled to like special treatment etc. Go to a doctor and have that doctor order you a vacation in the Canary Islands or some place like that, if he/she wont sign it start crying etc., that usuallly works, especially you being a frail woman. Than take the prescription to the social welfare office and they will cough up the money for the trip. No really, I'm actually semi-serious, I think in Sweden one might get something like that.

 I find it hard to believe that a poor person in a country with socialized medicine can't get the medicine she needs to manage her pain.  C-L you need to break the downward spiral by going to the doctor and DEMANDING pain meds.  There's just no freaking excuse for them to not give you what you need to manage your pain.  I'd even go with Adrian's advice and do the black market thing except its likely you don't have the cash for it.  Trust me, life will seem much better when the pain is gone - you're too young to let go.

 Maybe she is depressed because she cannot reach the unbelievably high standards of her country.
 
 Sweden doesn't have a humanity of 11, they used to force-sterilize people with a handicap...
 
 Or maybe we should send some electrical shoucks trough her so she gets angry. Wrath is the firsts step up from a depression.

 Not a suicide attempt. That would hurt lots and I'm allergic to large amounts of pain.
 
 I realised that I had placed the wrong kind of battery in my charger and it leaked acid all over my hand.
 Overcome by animal instinct (hey, we are all mammals) I licked my hand clean and then I bashed my head against the wall when I realised what I had done.
 Now it hurts to swallow and I think my digestive parts are going to go anarch on me...

                Yes, yes. Very disturbing, I'm sure. And now for a real complaint.
 
 I't sunday evening and I've got nothing to show for my day. The most productive thing I've done all day was probably taking a shower, and to be honest, not a particulary thorough one either (not that I'm covered in mud or anything, but, y'know, I've been cleaner).
 
 Relaxing after the week is good and well, but this is plain ridiculous. Seriously, all I've done today could be written down on the backside of a stamp. With a huge pencil. And there would still be room left.
 
 *AND* it's not like I haven't got stuff that has to be done, either. I'm just too lazy. On a scale from 1 to 10 I'm somewhere between "lay-zay-ass" and "Goddamn, kid!".
 
 Ygh.

                Jeese our worlds are collapsing.  Adrian Id offer you a room except that I've seen what happens to Californians when confronted with temperatures below freezing.  (My yard is covered in snow, you should have heard my sister from LA screech when she got here).  Take care Adrian I hope you find shelter soon.
 
 Seriously C-L, there have been 3 times in my life when I've actually wanted to die and all three times fortunately I've been too weak to do anything about it.  Pain killers sent me from wanting to die to liking life again.  And I still can't beleive they aren't available to you.

 pfft.  Weekends were made to waste.  I just got out of the shower (2:30 in the afternoon) after an all-day F.E.A.R. binge.  Now I have to go do something scholastic when all I want to do is play some more F.E.A.R.

                Adrian that totally sucks why have u gotta leave? hope u work it out and have some place to go... sad  u gonna stay in LA?
 
 my complaint is my stupid parents. my immature older sister got pulled over by a cop on Friday cos she didnt have license plates on her car yet. i tried to tell her but i didnt press it cos her friends were with her and stuff. she wasnt supposed to be driving but it was only from school which is like 10 minutes away and there are never usualy cops bout here anyways so i thought what the hell abnd got a ride...yea well she only got warned and my sister lied her ass of bout everything and my mom got pissed at her, and she got grounded for a week. Then i got grounded over the wkend and i didnt even do anything except get a ride, all my friends think its retarded. being grounded sucks i would prefer to get yelled at i dont even get into trouble much but lately i have for stuff which had nothing to do with me.. i feel like going upstairs and telling my parents all the stuff ive done to make them as angry as i am...i mean some of my friends stay out alll night and i cant even stay out until 10. i'm almost 15 i'm in highschool like what the hell.
 
 complaint #2 is people who moan bout stupid things!! stupid people should all be shot into space on a rocket and we should then shoot missiles at it. today i was coming out of a store holding a door for an older lady(sooo i figure she could open the thing herself shes like 55 not 90) but it was taking her ages so i decided to go, then when i get to our car her freaken husband tells my mom that i need to be a gentleman and that i slammed the door in her face Oh my god, if my mom was'nt there, the things i would have said to him...GOD THIS WEEKEND SUCKED. well at least i got my homework done.

 ps some of ui should go back to watching something dull like CSI cos Episode 3 was movie of the year.

 Dull, or too intellectual for you?
 I don`t care what Episode 3 was voted, it doesn`t matter.
 I think the three new movies were horrible, and just riding on the long-lived success of the oridginal movies.
 
 And I don`t care where you are, or for how short a time it is, driving without plates is illegal, so the cops were right. The warning was justified, and lucky.
 
 If you tell your parents everything, you`ll probably never see light of day again.

 New Complaint has anyone noticed that the review of a game is usually much worse than the previews of it were.  I was watching a game called Cold War that looked like a spy thriller set in 1948 Berlin with a Fallout like combat system combined with NPC's trying to manipulate you like Vampire the MAsquerade Bloodlines.  Then the review comes out and the game is awful, stupid AI, unintersting missions, NPCs with horrible lines and voice acting, and battles that take forever because even though your enemies act stupid it take them forever to actually act that way.
 
 And this isn't the first time I've seen a game played up in previews just to get slammed in the Review.  It seems to be a consistant pattern.

 Feel free to try if you want to try something impossible.
 
 Right now I feel so fucking beneath that I can't even bother to write why and how.
 Just one of those times when I want to ball up in a corner and cry but I can't do that.
 Everything is fucking pointless. Make the best of it?
 Gladly. I'll get the shotgun if you provide the ammo.
 It's just as if I'm caught in a cycle that keeps repeating at select points in my life. A set of scales. If I get too happy, someone I care for dies. Balance in the universe.
 Whenever I feel the least bit happy, somehing has to get in between.
 
 On top of that, I'm "blessed" with bad luck.
 If lightning strikes me twice tomorrow just before a car hits me I won't be surprised at all.
 Then, I get run over by the ambulance before having the wrong leg amputated.
 After that, I will probably catch flame for no particular reason just because it fucking figures!

 Bad things will happen and happen often. What makes me "happy" is knoing I was able to keep up with the bad and still make good things happen. If something bad happens, I try to impower myself to make something good happen for someone else and in return I feel better. I try to do what I can for others and the validation brings happiness. Doing this keeps me busy and I can't focus on my own problems and soon enough I realise the "problems" weren't really problems but my own manifestation of bad things to make up for the lack of chaos I'm so used to. If things are going too good, a part of me wants or tries to create chaos because it brings comfort. Outside of chaos I feel naked and confused because it's all I knew groing up. Helping others helps me and helps reverse some of those behavioral patterns I'm too used to.

 Of course i know what you mean, when i was nineteen, half of the people i knew just dropped dead.
 My dad, my grandmom, my sugar aunty, five other more distant family members. And then i was supposed to get my first job and make something of my life? After seeing my granny peeing trough her bed and later begging to die?
 
 I'm twenty seven now, and i worked mostly one year and a half.Just because i don't have any motivation left.
 
 The key in staying on your toes is not trying to be too good. Half of my family despises me just because i don't work on a career like a headless chicken and that's it. To hell with them...
 
 I know a woman who adopted a boy with the syndrome of Down who was abandoned by his real parents. She was recently rewarded for her compassion with a brain tumor.
 
 Like i said: Don't be too good.

 Some of this is perception. My feeling is when something good happens, something bad CAN happen but not WILL happen. Bad things happen again and again but it's not because I chose to do something positive. I think some things happen for a reason and I've had good things come from bad situations. I haven't lived this long through all of my personal misery just to piss it down the toilet. I may not have had many choices growing up but I'm 28 now and I have all the choices neccesary to make life go any direction I want it to. I think things will get better for you EPO but first you'll need to hit rock bottom. Then your choices will be crystal clear. After it happened to me I decided I was going to make something work no matter what. Though there have been snags, I've come so far there is nothing that could make me choose to go back to my torment. I was living on disability from bipolar disorder. I had at least 4 hospital visits and all the excuses in the world and co-dependant friends to validate why I was fucked up inside. It was because I chose to be fucked up inside.

 My poor hard working materialistic brother on the other hand lives in the desparate housewifes hell.He bought his own brand new apartment and the stress and the paperwork is killing him. Not to mention he is now blood bound to his shitty job to pay the unbelievably steep bills.
 It pisses him off to no end when he sees how relaxed i live.He thinks it's not fair: He works like a dog and feels like shit, wile his little brother just has fun.
 
 And if you think things happen for a reason,think again.

                My former girlfriend just dropped me a line in some time...
 
 History: My former girlfriend and the (so far) love of my life. She's smart, she's good looking, she's got a great body, she's a little bonkers, she's perfect for me.
 
 We never broke up, we just drifted along. We had been together a couple of years, she is older than me so she just finished college (I was just starting) and got offered a great job. Me, I got into a good program at a renowned university. Her new job and my university was in different cities in different parts of the country. I wanted her to come with me, she wanted to make a career.
 
 None of us backed down so we moved apart. We kept contact and tried to meet as often as we could but as is normal with these kinds of things it didn't last. We would feel like shit, then we would meet and feel like the hand of god was upon us when we were together, but neither one of us could cope with the empty desolate space that our inevitable parting left, when we got back to our own lives. So to stop that pain, we stopped meeting and also left our relationship to flow out in the sand.
 
 We kept in touch. Lately we haven't had much contact. She'd recently got promoted to executive and I knew she had new and more responsibilities. A few days ago it was her birthday so I called her up and we had a long philisophical chat about life and love.
 
 This morning she drops me a mail with a story about a moon, a mountain slope her new boyfriend, herself and a marriage proposal... which she accepts...
 
 Well, she burned a hole through my soul. And I have no idea how to deal with the feelings I have for her... what I feel right now... the feelings I have for my girlfriend who is an innocent... what I should do... why it hurts...
 
 ... I am so lost right now...

                My experience in life is more like Signofthorns than its like EPO's for, among other reasons, if I stopped working I would have ended up in the gutter.  I don't know what social safety net keeps you housed, clothed, and fed EPO but I don't have it, and honestly that's a good thing.  If I did have it I'm pretty sure I would have taken that option.
 When I finally got out of high school I was so screwed up that the roads set in front of me were few: I could slink off to the gutter and just lay down and die (actual suicide would have taken effort and as depressed as I was I didn't have the energy), I could have turned my anger outwards and struck back at society (what the temperature of ItBurns'es basement?  30 below har har), I could have stayed at home (where my most vicious torments took place, way too many ghosts there, the gutter would have been better) or I could move out and try.  So like Signofthorn I moved out and took control of my life.
 
 I wish I could do something to help you C-L.  You know the typical male behavior, find a problem fix it, find a problem fix it.  My girlfriends get annoyed at me and it doesn't help when I tell them its a glandular thing.  So let me just say I have been in some dark places and life does get better.  And to the rest of the walking wounded, (Montnoir I've been there I'm sorry dude; Lauren I'm sorry for your husband being an excrement) I hope you feel better soon too.

                OK, I'm probably going to be a little too brusque here, but ...
 
 Crazy-Legs?  Go to a psychiatrist.  Modern drug therapy is pretty darn advanced and the thing is, if you tough it out and avoid treating these things the problems become less treatable over time and you wind up a barely functionning member of society like myself.  The drug I'm on isn't perfect, but it keeps my lows from becoming so low that I hit the vicious spiral downwards.  (You know: I'm so worthless, I can't do anything.  Damn, I never do anything, I'm so worthless.)  If you can't manage to get out that door, enlist others to help you.  Recognize that the happy face that you see on those who have recently gotten on the right depression medication is not because they are artificially euphoric, it is because blocks that they did not know could be removed have been and they are suddenly able to be happy.
 
 Adrian?  Remember that friends and relatives are generally a lot nicer to the down and out than you expect them to be.  A couch at a friend's place is still an address to put on a job application form.  Evictions don't look good when you have to find a place to rent, but many problems can be solved with a large enough housing deposit or a co-signer.  If you are looking for a job, try looking in places that already have cheaper rents.

 Eating more vegetables helps too, especially broccoli because of the powerful anti-oxidants. Anti-oxidant treatments are becoming more and more popular for the symptoms of bi-polar disorder among other things. I used to take up to 16 anti-depression and psychotropic meds daily and I have been off of all meds for three and a half years. A daily vitamin and a Selenium tablet goes a long way.

 That's partially the right attitude. When you get back on top so-to-speak however, you shouldn't coast along and merely enjoy the moment but work at stopping the patterns that cause these breakdowns. I'm not trying to sound like a know-it-all because I'm not but this is one of the things that held me back.

 But these patterns tend to come back when I least expect them and there's also the fact that I've been through some pretty bad things that seem to repeat in my mind whenever I think about them.
 Then there's the patterns. I won't go into detail because it's private but some things have happened again and again just as if it's not meant to be "that way" for me.
 When I think about that, things get pretty bad.
 
 I don't like altering my brain chemistry when I'm perfectly capable of adapting to shit when it happens.
 I just need time. Time is good but I'm wasting it on myself when I could be doing something constructive instead of all this self pity.

 I used to think I truely knew myself until I was asked what caused me to repeat the same patterns over and over again and I was dumbfounded. Because I was never truely ahead of the game, I was not acting but reacting. Things would happen and I'd adjust. I thought I was pretty tough for being able to cope with the events but because I was always behind the game, it was impossible to identify what was causing these things to happen. When I got to a high point I began looking into these things and asking the opinions of those close or who I respected to get feedback on these things. The people around us can tell us alot about ourselves. We see how they react to us and we see parts of them that we like/dislike. I've always been the type who tries to dismantle everything and see what makes it tick. In the end I was able to see where other people were going "wrong" and look at what they could to to prevent things and applied it to myself.
 
 An important thing for me was to write everything down and plan. I also wrote kudos for accomplishments so I wouldn't be so harsh on myslef looking back with a different perspective than I had at the time. This allowed me to stay ahead of this for the most part and act before something bad happened. I don't know if this would work for you but it did for me.

 But the things that happen are completely impossible for me to control since I'm not the origin of the problem.
 I don't let these things happen. I never would. They just happen around me for no reason.
 The universe gives me the finger. Simple as that.

 All I'm really saying is that from my distant perspective your situation looks like severe depression to me, a chronic depressive.  (Which may be a "when all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail" thing)  As I personally now wish I hadn't been so determined to tough things out and solve my problems with my own natural willpower, I give some advice.  I am a control freak in many ways, so I don't like doing things that cause me to lose control, and the thought of taking "happy pills" was initially repugnant.  However, as it happens, the pills don't change my mood, they help me take control of my mood.  And the other revelation I came to have was when I was so depressed, I wasn't in my right mind.  So expecting to be able to act rationally when your mind is screwed up is silly.  When you are drunk, you don't think the things you are doing are stupid, but when you look back on it later you can see that your decision making process was screwed up.
 
 But hey, if you think that the majority of the time, you are perfectly capable of being happy, then perhaps this is just a trauma thing.  Hey I'm an empathic depressive, I worry that everybody might have depression when they start showing signs. (Umm, just so nobody is confused, empathic depressive is not a medical state, empathy is just a character trait of mine, and depression, my mental illness.)

 Imagine walking through a desert.
 In the sand, you find a bottle of water and just as you are about to drink, you notice a label on the bottle.
 Property of whoever and all of a sudden this person appears, takes the bottle and disappears.
 Still thirsty you wander onward through the desert and after days of suffering you finally find a bathtub of clear, cool water.
 Again, someone shows up, jumps in the tub and goes away taking the tub with them.
 A few weeks pass and you are now dying from thirst.
 Crawling over a dune, you see something glittering in the distance. It's the sea!
 You force yourself to stand and run toward the endless blue but BAM! You run into a fence.
 There's a sign that says "private beach" and the qwner stands on the other side, laughing at you and taunting you.
 You drop to your knees in dispair and fall backwards and with the boiling hot sand burning your back and the mercyless sun slowly killing you, you wonder why this happened.

                My complaint is this:
 
 When did the saying, ''Happy Holidays'' turn in to a bad thing?  I mean it even has the word HAPPY in it for crying out loud.
 
 I don't know where you are all from, but in many places here in the U.S. schools, businesses, slogans, etc are simply saying ''Happy Holidays'' instead of ''Merry Christmas''.  I've heard both saying from a multitude of people my entire life and never took offense because someone didn't say ''Christmas'' instead of ''Hoildays''.  I mean saying that used to mean Christmas and New Years, or even Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years.  Now though it seems to mean ''Happy whatever holiday you choose'', which to most people seems to actually mean definitely NOT Christmas.
 
 Why is this a problem though one might be asking?
 Because the schools that are hanging ''Happy Holidays'' banners instead of ''Merry Christmas'' banners are being slammed by parents and the media as having no morals, destroying the meaning of Christmas and so on.
 
 I even hear of people that have stopped buying products featured in commercials that simply say ''Happy Holidays'.
 
 What the fuck is going on?
 
 I mean there ARE other people in the world, and in this very country, that celebrate other holidays after all.
 
 It's the fucking goddamn Christians, they have to make everything such an issue with their simple closed minds.
 
 I mean saying ''Happy Holidays'' shouldn't cause an uproar, especially since without asking we don't know what each other celebrates.  I mean I could honor Hanukah, Kwanza, Yule, etc and should be able to enjoy doing so.
 
 Where is the tolerance?  
 I posted an article in the 'In the News' thread about a couple who decorated their house with a Santa who is holding a severed head.  Is this bad and does it fly in the face this the X-Mas spirit?  Maybe, but not allowing it is taking away a freedom.  If I do not like it I will choose not to look at it, it doesn't effect me in the slightest.  It really pains me when people start crying about things like this, wanting it one way while stepping on the toes of others.  Because when the shoe is on the other foot, they scream bloody murder.  
 
 Minorities have rights too and they shouldn't be forced to say ''Merry Christmas''.  I feel bad for the companies that aren't trying to offend anyone by saying ''Happy Holidays'' but are getting such bad press by the Christmas Brigade.  I mean it's fucking Chritmas for Christ's sake, where is the love people?
 
 Next they'll be upset because they were told to ''Have a good weekend'' instead of ''Have a worshipful Sunday''.
 
 Nucking Futs!

                Ok, for the third day in a row I come home and my phone is dead.  I go and look on the website for my phone service and they say their was a cable cut in my neighborhood and that service would be restored by 9pm on the 15th.  That was 21 hours ago.  Mean while I have to dust off my cell phone out and call everyone I know to give them this number.
 
 Even though I own a cell phone I hate cell phones.  The constant lousy signal irritates me and I'll be damned if I'll be a slave to communicating to people when I'm out of the house.  Yes I know, my fuddy duddyness is showing but gol dang it land line phones were good enough for my cave man ancestors so they're good enough for me!

 What if you have no way to contact this friend or if that person wants nothing to do with you?
 How about not knowing who to turn to because you feel rejected on all sides?
 I appreciate the concern I'm shown but right now I can do nothing to make things better.
 I worry for others and I worry for myself.

 I do have people to talk to but I don't make much sense when I'm like this.
 
 A friend is a friend.
 When people reject you, you need to understand why it happened and go into the reason why they choose to do so.
 If it's a friend you generally know that person well and have some measure of insight into their motives since you know how they think. Everyone has their own reasons for acting in certain ways.
 
 I can't talk to my family about these things because I'm too deep for most people to understand.
 That's not bragging or anything. I think in different ways than most people (read: insane) and I guess that's why I feel like I do right now. There's really no one I can turn to because the few people that do understand me are out of my reach. If I could be honest to the people around me, the people near me and the people here, I might have an easier time but that would make me hated by all. Really.
 There's no point in trying to convince me otherwise.
 I'm way too paranoid to even try it.

                Ok, a few of you on this forum sound like they need a yuk or 2 so I'll post this complaint instead of suffering in silence.
 
 I normally set my thermostat fairly low - 62 in the winter.  Despite my best efforts my dogs will wait till I'm asleep then climb up onto the bed next to me to share my warmth.  
 
 One of my dogs has a bladder infection.  
 
 She involuntarily pees in her sleep.

 Pneumonia, bronchitis and severe flus suck, there really is no quick remedy or antidote for any of them. I'm not sure how the flu shots work, it could be that in the future the flu shots will be used routinely against flus and such. The only way to guard against pneumonias etc. that I know of besides the right diet and taking vitamins etc. is to have a good constitution. A bit like in RPG's, you have to put points into constitution so your immune system will be strong enough to battle the respiratory infections before they take over.
 
 So, put char points into constitution!

 My complaint is actually multiplayer games first I tried star wars galaxies, and then VTM redemption.  If you haven't already been playing for 1000+ hours and have a PhD on all the ins and outs of that specific game no one wants to play with and or help you. I'm sticking to basketball.  Just bring a ball and others will join in, no downloading, special mods, restricted forums to join.

                The Happy Holidays vs Merry Christmas thing is a partially artificial thing invented by Bill O'Rielly of the Fox News Channel.  Some retail outlets went over board in not wanting to offend potential customers and removed all reference to the word Christmas.  This is somewhat hypocritical as the Christmas shopping season is hugely important to them making a profit and it ain't Mohamedans doing the buying.  So O'Rielly organized a boycott of those stores that wouldn't say Merry Christmas and most of them instantly folded to the pressure.
 
 The real issue is the politicaly correct idiots who are either forbiding the singing of Christmas carols or are changing the words to be completely secular.  These are the same useless fucks who expelled a 13 year old because she gave a mydol to a friends (thus becoming in their eyes a drug dealer).  The intolerance of these creatures to traditions of Christmas makes me want to burn them at the stake (warning! warning! Irony alert!  If you are incapable of detecting irony (its like goldeny and bronzeny only made out of iron) you should go read a comic until the irony is over).

 Complaint: Starting up your computer and after five
 seconds starting at a blue screen filled with sadly
 meaningless techno-gibberish. It is not fun when a
 hideously expensive five month old computer ceases
 functioning due to a hard drive failure, the least it could
 have done was to use plain language to tell me.

 That`s a bastard isn`t it? Had that a few times myself.
 
 
 To the rest:
 
 Guys, if CL doesn`t want to share, let her be.
 She`ll tell when\if she is ready.
 
 
 Complaint: Being alone , again, for Christmas.
 
 I`m all for living by myself under my own rules and that, but when I see everyone else wandering around with someone, it pisses me off that I`m alone, with no-one to share anything with.
 
 That and it being freezing here, I like winter, but I hate the cold, fucks me right up.

                I went for my check up on Monday which included having quite a bit of blood drawn.  The nurse told me that it being the holiday season I might not hear the results of the test for a while and to not worry about it that if anything stood out that needed action they would call me sooner.  So I get home on Wednesday and they've called asking me to call them back.  YIKES!  So I call them back today and they said, "Oh, there's no one here who can explain the results right now.  Call back tomorrow."
 
 BASTARDS!  Now I think I have cancer!  And I'll lay you odds that tomorrow being the Friday before the Christmas weekend that there won't be anyone to explain the results then either.  AUUGH, I MIGHT BE DYING AND NO ONE WILL TELL ME.  
 
 (Ok I'm paranoid, so sue me.  I've had 2 sudden unexpected hospital stays for life threatening illnesses in the last 8 years and I'm twitchy on the subject now.)

 Lonliness really sucks.
 I know that empty feeling and it's all so much stronger this time of year. I have no hope left.
 
 The cold hates me and I hate the cold.
 Every time I walk outside, my throat shrinks on itself and I start hissing and I sound like Imalia or something.
 On top of that, both my knees give up much easier. I can't even stand around the frozen foods at the supermarket anymore...
 
 Complaint/fact/whatever:
 I see no future and all I can do is lock away the misery somewhere and shut up about it.
 There are things that happen to us all and there are things that only happen to a select few.
 Then we have a sort of twilight zone that most people live in. A place where you can at least hope for the things life can offer you.
 I just got kicked back into the zone with only guarantees like aging and dying. Lovely.
 If I wasn't so hardened by life already I would have jumped off a cliff days ago...
 Like the prisoner who is getting whipped who can only think of counting the remaining lashes I can at least make something out of my remaining life by studying mankind and how we suffer. Maybe someday I will understand myself and why it had to be this way?
 
 And one more thing:
 That stupid Xbox ad! I can't stand white! It burns my eyes and I have shield them from the bright light reflected off it.
 As you can well imagine, I don't go outside much either.
 Fucking snow...

                I’m so tired of being here
 Suppressed by all my childish fears
 And if you have to leave
 I wish that you would just leave
 Ã¢â‚¬â„¢cause your presence still lingers here
 And it won’t leave me alone
 
 These wounds won’t seem to heal
 This pain is just too real
 There’s just too much that time cannot erase
 
 
 When you cried I’d wipe away all of your tears
 When you’d scream I’d fight away all of your fears
 I held your hand through all of these years
 But you still have
 All of me
 
 You used to captivate me
 By your resonating life
 Now I’m bound by the life you left behind
 Your face it haunts
 My once pleasant dreams
 Your voice it chased away
 All the sanity in me
 
 These wounds won’t seem to heal
 This pain is just too real
 There’s just too much that time cannot erase
 
 
 
 I’ve tried so hard to tell myself that you’re gone
 But though you’re still with me
 I’ve been alone all along
 
 
 
 This about sums it up, expecially the last three lines.

 If you meant a trip to another country I'm just too fucking poor to go anywhere.

 I just don't want to hurt those I care about.
 In particular those who tend to PM me.
 People here, posters or lurkers may think they know me well enough since I've managed to clog the forums with my crap over 3000 times by now but even those whom I would consider my friends don't know me.
 I'm afraid that I'll lose what few friends I have if I say but I can't keep doing this to those I care for.
 That's why I think I need to leave.
 If not forever, at least until I'm ready to keep hurting others with my lies.
 Certain people... I've done things that I'm not very proud of but I have kept on doing it so I wouldn't hurt them.
 I've had my chances earlier but now I'm in too deep.
 I'm already hurting people even now and I don't want to make things worse than they already are.
 There's another reason too that I won't mention because it's way too personal.
 
 The people here are tolerant but I don't think I'd be welcome here anymore if I were to be honest.
 The first step to make myself understandable would be to point out what I've been telling people.
 I hate stalkers.

 If you shoot you shoot someone with a US military issue Colt 45 they will either get knocked down or do a nice spin.  You are right for the most part.  People getting shot always looked to me like they just fall down.  Like I said before, don't take yourself too seriously.  I have done some really bad things for my country that I really wish I could take back, but I am not a bad person.  Shit happens.  You just have to leave the past in the past.  And remember, you are not being dishonest when you don't walk up to someone new and say hello, my name is ****, did you  know that I did **** in the past?   Some things are just no one's business but your own.

 I still like her tough :-)
 
 Btw CL, are you into scuba diving? Some time ago you said you wanted to visit Hurgada in Egypt. Unless you are a Settite looking for an evil artifact, people only go there for the coral reefs.
 
 Been there in 1995. I kinda liked it, but the predjudices about western women are staggering.The men there seem convinced all western women are Jezebels. If you ever go there, prepare to get stalked by horny boys...
 
 Wich brings me to another complaint: Arabic people have the most beautiful women in the world, but no one ever sees them.On the other hand, their guys are free to bang around with OUR girls as much as they want, as long as they marry a girl of their own kind later on.
 
 Read my lips (or lines): To solve the racial problems we have here in Europe, we must mix the two cultures into one. Inbreeding will improve nothing.

                Asshole pointy haired bosses.  I work on the second floor and the boss of the whole section of the government (a Bush political appointee) works on the 4th floor but he's made a point to come down here today to make sure no one leaves before 5pm.  It's the Christmas weekend and traditionally the government dismisses employees at noon but we're sitting here in an empty building trying to work even though the people we need to talk to are long gone.  What a PRICK!.

 While agreeing on the female circumcision, it is not an issue of Islam, but an issue of tradition; but African Islam has it's positive sides too -- they treat their women as equals (actually, they treated their women as equals: the paranja is more in common now than years before; not that is a sign of an actual treatment as inferiors, but a change nevertheless).
 
 And speaking about muslim culture at all... well, it will sound provocative, I am fully aware of it, but Middle East will be always incomprehensible both for Americans (because their belief is too strong) and for Europeans (who have a post-nitzschean society, which excludes belief). As Rudyard Kipling wrote, East is East, and West is West, and never the twain shall meet.
 
 Somehow I feel I could complain about that.

 P.S.: Slut as a definition for a free-willed woman is also common in a western culture.

                Complaint: I worked my ass off to finish the 2 papers I had to hand in. Put in some extra research, ignored sex and christmas-tree "clothing" and handed them in.
 
 The teacher said: "you've put in a lot of time and your work is one of the best I've read this semester, but you handed the paper in a day late, therefore you are FAILED! Merry Christmas!"
 
 I was aware I handed it in late but I counted on the quality of the work and goodwill of the teacher to get passed. And even if he'd fail me he could at least have waited until after the holidays to tell me.
 
 Next complaint: My mother bears so much pain in her soul that it breaks my heart. This pain she has eats her up from inside. I must find a way to make her give up all those painful memories and the pain she holds on to, but I don't know how.
 
 Announcement: I haven't left and I have no intention of doing so either, if anyone thought so... or cared. I've just been busy; I'll be back as fast as humanly possible... or when my brain jumpstarts itself... or when I sober up... bah, important thing is that I'll be back...
 
 Merry Christmas... or whatever! Now let's get wasted!

 People only think they know moslim cultures and want to hate so badly.  Honor killing, known as dueling in the west, is illegal in just about every country in the world including Turkey.  You would be hard pressed to find a single nation left that has legal grounds for killing in a duel.  Lethal injection collapses the lungs while paralyzing the body.  It looks so peacful but the prisoner suffocates to death while having a simultaneous heart attack.  Both methods of death are considered some of the painful.  Yet hanging from a gallows, which severs the brain stem from the spine when done properly and they have it down to a science, is the most humane way to die.  But, in the United States we are more concerned with the apperance of humility and civility instead of the actual practice.  Every religion has its extremists that commit acts of terror.  We have protestants that feel it is God's will to blow up abortion clinics while they are fully staffed.  Do they represent all protestants?  No.  Do moslim terrorists represent all moslims? No.  Does the Qoran have two parts:  one teaching peace, love, and tolerance; the other hellfire and brimstone, wrath of God.  Yes, and so does the bible.  "Judge not lest ye shall be judged."

 When it comes to good old fashioned bigotry and xenaphobia religion is usually just an excuse or rationalization.  I was just showing the hypocrisy in the "they're evil because they're moslim" excuse.

 Ok some one called for a religious argument so I shall rise in answer.
 
 "Honor Killings" have nothing to do with duels - they are the murder of a female member of a family by another member of the family in order to preserve the honor of the family.  It is disgusting.  I don't give a damn if you think I'm bigoted when it comes to killing little girls just because they want to wear make up I intend to be biggoted.
 
 Turkey does in deed have different laws for the Honor murders of female relatives by relatives (including husbands) that they do for regular murders with drastically reduced sentences - and that's even if any one bothers to prosecute.  Look at the statistics in the famously secular Arabs living in territory occupied by Israel - even they wink at the murder of females by male relatives.
 
 In the US their is a case where a family moved to the Detroit area from one of the Arab countrys (been a while I can't remember from where).  The 13 year old daughter went to public school and wanted to act like her school friends and started getting in fights with her parents about choice of clothes and make up.  One day daddy and mommy decided thier honor had had enough.  The little girl managed to make it to the phone and dialed 911 so we got to listen to a tape of her last moments while her mother held her down and her father stabbed her to death.  At the trial the father claimed self defence saying his daughter attacked her.  And you wonder why I hate that culture.
 
 Here's a small sampling of other international honor killings:

 http://www.timesonline.co.uk/article/0,,25689-1952823,00.html
 
 
 
 Ok on to a new complaint - people who don't use the internet to research before replying.  Just stick "honor killing islam" in google and you might have understood.
 
 Oh and on a personal note - I hate mysogynists and fuck anybody who doesn't like that.

                I'm only a short way through this post so forgive me if I repeat what might already have been said.
 
 I believe in God and I'm pretty pissed right now that he took my best friend away when she finally had everything she wanted in life (a life where she overcame obstacles and put her faith in God's hand when he let her body develop leukemia; if it was what he had in mind for her then she would walk the path).
 
 I have a problem with religions because of the influence of man in them.  I've heard that Catholic priests are the only men who aren't permitted to get married.  Now I haven't looked into the issue myself but the reason, I was told, was so that men who died would have no family to leave their inheritances to (because the father's inheritance usually fell to the sons of the family) and the Church would gain the inheritance when priests die.  
 
 Now as to the validity of that I don't know but where there is power and wealth there will be men (and women) corrupting and manipulating things for their own good.
 
 There are also books that are not included in the bible, someone at some point felt they should be taken out of the testiment.  I think the parts with Lillith being Adam's first wife is one that has been omitted.  So who is anyman to tell the followers which parts of the bible they are allowed to read?  I picked up a copy of the bible and a book with the missing chapters but I have not made the time to read them yet but I am curious as to why they have been excluded.  But if one is to have faith they need to be allowed to see all with their eyes open and trusted to make the right decision.

 The Catholic church decided that the apocrypha, over a dozen books of the Talmud, didn't belong becuase they didn't agree with their beliefs.  Isn't that a gas.  Christians telling Hebrews that their own scriptures aren't valid because they don't fit in with their beliefs.  I am not sorry I brought it up.  As far as that fellow pissing and moaning about the Turkish, Bertrand Russell stated that the very measure of a person's lack of evidence is the same measure of passion in their arguement.  When one has facts on their side they don't need to get upset.  I have met, served with, and fought with the Turkish, Pakistani, United Arab Emerites and a variety of other moslims.  Most people who say that they are blood thirsty killers that hate americans have never even met one.  Most foriegners love the USA, including moslims.  They love american culture, cars, movies, clothes, styles, and would give their right arm to  vacation here.  If someone's best source of evidence is some blog or the constant scare mongering of the US press then they have a severe lack of evidence.  As far as Lilith, it is a hebrew fable.  But, don't you think that Jonah living in the belly of a fish is nothing more than a Hebrew fable?  I am sorry for your loss.  No matter how much death you see you are never prepared for it.

 Yes, after over a week and a half of working and suffering being sick, I finally went to the ER.  Turns out I was right, and had pnuemonia, but had let it go long enough without treatment it had gotten pretty bad, now I'm home in bed for over a week.  Damn it!

                Goddamn stingy bosses running the company who won't spend extra money to buy better work-desks for their employees. The desk width is measly, so that everyone's monitors sit at an angle where the distance between desk-edge and eyes are furthest, and as such, keyboards are all slanted at an odd angle and you end up busting your posture.
 
 I NEED my monitor parallel to my desk, goddamnit! I can't work properly with computer paraphernalia arranged in all the goddamned wrong positions that is unhealthy for the eyes and back!
 
 I even went shopping for a keyboard drawer that clip onto the edges of the desk. But nooo....no computer shop these days sell such a thing anymore! These days it's, drill a hole under your desks and install the keyboard drawer! As if my bosses would let me get away with creating holes in the office furniture!

 1.  I never said muslims all hated America or wear all blood thirsty killers.  I defy you to quote me saying so.
 
 2.  You refer to my information as coming from Blogs.  The links I gave came from Der Spiegal a large German mainstream magazine, from The Times of London a large famous newspaper, and the Christian Science monitor another magzine.  Are these all easily disparaged Blogs?
 
 3.  I'll state it again PLAINLY.  The biggest problem I have with Islam is the insane cruelty they inflict upon their women.  If they were willing to show the same insane cruelty to the men and made them equal under the law I wouldn't have such a problem with them.
 
 At EPO - so your solution to the middle east issues is to commit genocide of about the size of the Rwanda genocide.  Nuking Jerusalem would kill 800,000 easy and probably most of them would be muslims.  Theirs something disturbing for a man who speaks a language closely related to German talking about nuking jews.
 
 At Lauren - yeah I've been there.  I have the amazing stealth veins and at one point they stuck me litteraly 10 times before finding a vein.  I hate that and hope you feel better.
 
 At sexydeth - I'm sorry about your friend.

                My head is still fairly attached.
 It's my mind that I'm worried about...
 
 The doctors earlier today had me inhaling god-knows-what and now I'm all hyper! I need rest but that's nothing but a distant dream now.
 
 New stuff:
 Hyped on oxygen and whatever they did to me so now I can't sleep even though it's 05:22 in the morning.
 Suh-weet... someone, hand me the horse tranquilizers...

 Are you shure the dudes in the white coats really want to cure you? Or do they simply want to make a living out of your phonebook full of real and imagined ailments?

 Sounds like Albuturol, or some other type of inhaled steriod.  I had threee treatments on Monday, but didn't have any trouble sleeping because of the morphine and vicodine I was given as well.  Seems that I cracked a couple ribs coughing so hard.  I have the feeling you feel about how I do or worse, you have my sympathy...this sucks.

 By the way, in the United States when a woman is raped on a college campus it is customary for the university to conduct their own investigation and administer their own punishment, an academic punishnent.  The police are usually not informed.  Don't point out the speck in my eye until you remove the log from your own eye.  Isn't that somewhere in the bible?

 Oh I know.  Its just that christians love to justify hate with scripture.  The problem is that they only use those parts that are convienent.  I try to show them those parts that aren't so convienent.

 I like ancient history.  But, ancient history means religous history if you go back far enough, for without science all they had was religion to explain away the darkness, in the world and in their minds.  The thing is is that everyone world wide throughout history believe pretty much the same things (I believe it is because we have the same brains, we stopped evovling about 5 million years ago, homoerectus the last before homosapian, but how can you prove a theory like that).  People are incredible plagerists when it comes to religion.  They all rewrite religion and rewrite history.  They, then claim that they are right and everyone else is a evil, godless, heretic that deserves death and/or torture if they don't convert.

 You guys keep talking about religion.  I'm talking about history.  Religion is faith and dogma.  History is a science.

                I'd love to jump into the discussion, but I think I'll stay out of the religion stuff for the moment.  I get enough from my parents. My dad's a preacher and thinks the history of religion is fascinating, therefore everyone else must think so to. (gee, and it's a wonder I turned out so normal.) Granted the history is interesting, but for some reason he doesn't feel the same about when I talk about my thesis for my masters degree...The effects of entomology in forensics.
 
  I get to go back to work tonight...finally.  None of those little intern bastards better not have touched any of my tools or files.

 <green>The effects of entomology in forensics. </green>
 
 In other words how bugs eat corpses.
 
 
 Now back to bogj:
 
 I wasn't talking about religeon per se just about the lack of women's rights in one culture.  Yes the bible does say to remove the log from my eye before mentioning the speck in some one elses but does that mean I should start loving the murders and mutilations of woman in another culture?  Oh, and by the way, if I found out about a rape on a near by campus that the university officials didn't do a thing about I'd get me some nails, a hammer, and some really big crosses and I'd start making religious icons out of those university officials.
 
 Ahh, truth.  What is truth?  Are mine the same as yours?  In my truth all global warming is natural and human beings don't have anything to do with it.  I support this truth with facts that all the screaming mie-mie's ignore.
 
 1.  Mars is under going a period of global warming that closely matches ours.
 2.  An article in Der Spiegal (that non-religious magazine you ignored in order to focus on the Christian science monitor) mentions that as the glaciers in Swtizerland recede they are finding tree stumps underneath them.  Carbon dating on these stumps places this anchient forest's age at 2200 years or so.  So when Hannibal crossed the Alps there were no glaciers only forests.  Of course its possible the anchient Romans were burning oil to fuel their chariots isn't it?
 3.  Mount Pinatubo's eruption put more CO2 into the atmostsphere than all of human kinds works since the begining of time.  And although Pinatubo's eruption was large it is dwarfed by such eruptions as Santorini in 1650 BC, Krakatoa in 1883, and Tambora in 1815 - a little known eruption that was so powerful the ash blocked out the sun and caused a global cooling so bad that the year was known as the year without a summer.  It snowed in New England in July of that year.  The 3 I mentioned range between 100 to 1000 times more powerful than Pinatubo and unleashed purportionaly more CO2.  And don't get me started on the even LARGER eruptions that have occured like the Yellow Stone Caldera.
 4.  Climatological history proves that we are coming out of what scientists called the "little ice age".  World wide temperatures plunged from aprox 900 AD untill aprox 1850 and are now just going back up to where they were before.
 
 So my truths, based on facts, is that global warming is a totally natural phenomenon.  Will you check my facts?  Or will you blythly dismiss them not wishing to challenge your own beliefs?  Would belief in oposition to known facts be considered religious?  After all, you have to have FAITH to ignore the facts.
 
 I switched to global warming to give you a perspective on the mysogynistic nature of Islam.  I give you facts, I link to them but you focus on only one of the links and the only return argument from you seems to be - well islams murders of women are ok because rapes on campus go unpunished.  
 
 Let's stop bugging people and just end up saying, I have my truths, you have yours.
