But when you stop and take a hard look at this kind of behavior it's really just plain old disrespect and you really should not have to tolerate it.

    I went to take a quick nap earlier after dinner, around 7:00 or so, and just woke up now at 12:15am. Fuck.

    it pisses me off that i have a drinking problem because sometimes i wanna get DRUNK.
    even as i am trying to help other people with THEIR drinking problems, sometimes the fucking craving is SO GODDAMN....UGHHH.
    I wanna have whiskey for breakfast like @aggroculture .
    But i would be utterly fucked. i'd keep drinking till i wound up in jail or thrown out or some shit.
    The craving pisses me off, and the dreams...i'll dream i'm back in dirty dallas walking to the liquor store and fuck me, i wake up and it's just a dream, but half asleep i think "well i CAN go to the corner store and get some wine" and then i realize...no i fucking can't!
    it sucks balls.

    I'm a vegetarian, so.....


    Hey, I have a joke: How can you tell the vegetarian/vegan in the room? Don't worry. They will let you know.

    Hah. Basically!

    I mean, that's great and all. But I hate how with *some* people EVERY topic turns into being a vegetarian. Or they need to talk about it 10 minutes after meeting someone, etc, etc, etc.

    I mean, I wish I had the willpower to be one. But I just don't.

    Given that I know LOADS of vegans who have cats and happily boil whole chickens for them...yeah. I see some being self-righteous as if it's not a choice. Sure, I see how my love of raw-ass bleeding meat may not be perfect, but it's not like you're some homosexual in Uganda.

    It's funny because for me it's the other way round. I'm vegetarian but I only mention it when it comes up naturally but when I do it's at that point that all the meat eaters need to tell me how much they love it and talk about bacon like it's just as essential as oxygen.

    I was just about to say how that is shitty as well. My sister was a vegetarian for like 8 years, and her father was always being a twat about it.

    I don't preach about it. I will occasionally say "meat is murder" but only for the sake of novelty, I guess. I don't have a problem with carnivores. I just wish that they wouldn't get weirded out by me. "You're a vegetarian, Marlina? But you're so fat. I don't get it."

    Anyone who says that to you deserves to have their bollocks ripped off or punched in the boob.

    So then talking about how I plan to have sex for vegetarian/vegan rights in the fucking thread will just ruin the whole thing?????

    There are so many better things to talk about. Like how I had a whole package of green olives for lunch. Or the million dollars I've spent in the last month at Ulta and Sephora. Or how @eversonpoe and his fiancée are the cutest couple ever.

    Speaking of gluten free, what really pisses me off is the influx of identifying menu items as gluten free at restaurants. I'm not against gluten free foods but I really wish that restaurants would get on board and list all of their food allergens. My daughter has a shitload of food allergies and going out to eat is quite a challenge. We end up going to the vegan restaurant 90% of the time. My issue is not with gluten free foods, it's with restaurants.

    True. What pisses me off is people who talk about their diet, whatever it is. No one ever cares. Its the same with dreams. However interesting you find your own, you don't give a shit about other peoples. No one cares about anyone elses diet or dreams. No one. And yet people still continue to talk about them.

    Yeah but people talk about what is important to them and what interests them. I bet you talk about loads of stuff to friends, collegues etc that they don't give a toss about. Some people actually do care about diets and dreams.

    I have a friend who talks about their weightlifting training and gains on FB. Do I care if she benched this or that? No. But i'm certainly not going to rain on her parade just because i'm not interested, some people will be and if not it's still nice to be courteous and entertain the things that people care about.

    awww shucks

    seriously, though, everyone has the right to eat how and what they want, and no one should tell them what to do (unless it's directly affecting their health...like, don't let someone with a peanut allergy say "fuck you, i'm gonna eat ALL THE PEANUT BUTTER CUPS!" because then they will die).

    Eating too many peanut butter cups would be a good way to go.

    When I was a pescatarian (before I discovered the delights of raw beef and wine) I used to tell creeps that hit on me that "I don't eat red meat".

    So we can't have a shitlist, we can't have a misogyny thread, even the fuckin jokes thread gets locked. What is ETS coming to these days? Is the only thing acceptable here now being sad and depressed? What about the laughter, people!

    You might think this doesn't effect you. But where does it end, man? WHERE DOES IT END?

    What's next? Soon Eleveno won't be able to post about his complex relationship? Hazekiah about his love for Transformers and Manson? Cashpiles about his love for... asian stuff? Kris will get post capped and only be able to start like two or three new threads a day?

    I sincerely implore you to think about the dangerous direction this website is headed in and it's imperial and tyrannical regime. Do you really want to live in that kind of ETS? I think not good sirs.

    so i looked up my ex girlfriend and bandmate's website, and she went to the studio and recorded a bunch of songs we wrote together...but didn't give me any credit.
    And she's playing said songs all over dallas...she's playing like three shows a month.

    it pissed me off, although it is a LITTLE flattering that half the lyrics are about me. She probably tells the new bf she just wrote them and they are about him. Oh yeah, and i wonder if she has some new guitarist playing MY FUCKING GUITAR PARTS live!

    But my girl had an idea...why don't i record the songs too? Why the hell not? I'll go play 'em too. We wrote them all together...they are half mine, damnit!

    My daughter, Victoria Apple (yes, that's her name), is allergic to peanuts. She'll never know the joy of Reese's PB cups. Oh well. That means I don't have to share with her. I'm pretty sure I'm gonna get mom of the year award for that statement.

    People who get HELLBENT on correcting everyone in a 10-mile radius when someone refers to their plugs (the ear accessories) as "gauges."

    For fuck's sake, why does such a superficial, jargon-bred nickname for a thing matter THAT MUCH?

    The Age Of Digital Photography

    First of all I'm not going to piss on the technology of digital photography. I personally think it's astounding in both quality and versatility. I also am in a business that builds parts that enable such technology. For me, it's the way society has "embraced it" that has me a bit put off. I'm also writing this based on last night's experience on date night with my partner and I which still has me a bit steamed.
    After a nice little dinner we walked it off down at the lake waterfront and marina. The place has a nice little boardwalk and can get a bit crowded with tourists this time of year but that usually doesn't detract from the experience. It was sunset over the lake and the view, like almost any other night there, is gorgeous. The two of us really loved it. But what blew us away was how 90% of everyone out there on the boardwalk we either looking at the sunset through their phone lenses or setting up digital SLR shots (some people had actual tripods) for groups. I was wondering how many of these people were actually enjoying the experience for what it was and not how it was going to look on some social media site. I'm also blown away by how much of this I see at concerts. Phones up in the air and me wondering "is anyone actually watching the show through their own eyes?"
    The best part came when the two of us found a nice spot to look out from which was apart from the snap happy tourists when we were interrupted by a woman in a straw hat with an SLR strung around her neck asking "could we possibly get a photo here without you two in it?". She apparently was trying to photograph a group who had shown up next to us to pose in front of the sunset. I responded jokingly (and slightly serious) that I was looking for ways to photo bomb them but we reluctantly moved anyhow.
    So what I've come to realize is that photography in the digital age means just about ANYONE with a phone or a few spare bucks carries something that they feel they need to use to capture photos at just about every special moment. Sure, convenience is nice, but I recall photography being something of a hobby for some people and you'd see a couple of those folks here or there catching shots, not every single joe-tourist out on the town. On top of that, add the entitlement of people to "choose how the shot is done" while invading the freedoms of others to just enjoy themselves without having to be told to "please move out of our shot". Then I ask myself how many of these photos are actually going to be recalled as something nice as a memory to look back on or just another "Like" catcher on Facebook to say "hey we were here, isn't that awesome?" and then forgotten within a week. Maybe I'm an old fogey but good lord..

    How my period, WITHOUT FAIL, will rearrange itself to fall on my vacation. Every. Fucking. Time. If I don't have an event or trip coming up, it's like a goddamn clock. I know precisely what day it will start on. But if I have a vacation coming up, it's all like YOLO and will be sure that it is with me. It started a week and a half late this time! What a bitch!

    Sometimes, I hate you, vagina.

    I'm with you in this one. At Coachella this year, sometimes I'd have a hard time seeing through the sea of phones, cameras and iPads. It's got a name:http://www.npr.org/2014/05/22/314592...t-our-memories. Photo-taking Impairment Effect. Wide swathes of people's memories are lost save for the photos they have of those moments.

    I wouldn't have been as nice as you about moving out of their frame.

    My eczema on my hands is coming back on my hands. It makes my hands looks super sexy, ultra diseased and way old. Plus, I want to itch the hell out of it and peel the flaky skin. Way to go hands.
