No, it's the "that hurts so bad I'm going to take my mask off even though I'm in a hospital emergency room and throw up now" kind of pain.
    Fuck, I’m on the same dose, and I’m often dehydrated. Ugh.

    I wish I could go off Topiramate, but I really don’t want these fucking MIGRAINES back right now.

    I’m gonna start drinking water like crazy.

    (And do my back exercises lol.)

    If it helps at all, I still have the copy of three and a half seasons you sent me 10 or 11 years ago. Been a long time since I listened but I'll get it into Roon and will play this week(end).

    It's funny, I tried to destroy every existing copy of that one, but I just listened to it earlier. When I made it, I was going through something really intense and horrible, and the songs were really personal, and in hind sight I spilled too much into it. The whole "screaming in my coma" thing, I just felt it was too melodramatic.

    But weirdly, listening to it again, there's some really fun moments in there.

    I don't get these "limited stream virtual concert" things... at least with a virtual class thing there's an element of interaction, so the "limited seating" makes sense, and then they put an edited version online for you to download and review.

    But this whole "spend 40 bucks to watch a concert that will disappear" concept almost feels like it's taking advantage of people desperate to see a live show at this point.

    How Did This Get Made does this. The first one I couldn't watch because of their technical issues - June couldn't figure out how to connect and Jason's mic was way too hot - so I couldn't even watch the thing I paid for.

    Thing about their live shows in general: they edit them down for the podcast so there's things that you only see live. they did this to the streaming show for some reason. I get the rationale for the actual live shows but streaming? nah.

    haven't paid for any other one.

    Wastes of space like Kevin Johnston (who wants to be Mayor of Calgary, if people vote this sack of shit in i will be so disappointed) and his ilk knowingly spreading around what is likely to be COVID all over the damn place.

    Twitter thread below.

    Sometimes I really, really hate the internet.

    I just got an ad on Facebook, w/ a very compelling sad story about how this person was born deformed, and her father ran out on her as a child... and how she hunted him down and he rejected her because he was ashamed of her appearance. So, before I looked into this further (there's a sad video that is almost certainly real), I googled the "charity" site with the weird name that I'd never heard of.

    Scam. Fuck you Facebook. Fuck you right in the face. You go around putting people in "zuck jail" for telling nazis to go fuck themselves, but this is ok? Aren't you supposed to vet this stuff before you cash in?

    That’s terribly offensive and inconsiderate. Sorry about that...

    My first kiss ever might be a stage kiss.
    It really grinds my body top to bottom with sandpaper.

    Nobody has ever kissed me! And I’m not gonna do anything without the other person’s consent, but at this point, I’m almost desperate enough to accept this.
    I know the “first kiss” is society bullshit but it’s hard to be on the unlucky side of society where no one thinks you’re good enough to smooch or just peck.

    I’ll get over it if I stop measuring my ego through other people’s opinions. I really like theatre, I need to focus on that.

    That's almost a little cute if you look at it that way, and trust me, most people's first kiss is a let down. It takes a while before intimacy is a comfortable thing you can trust with someone else.

    This has to be someone fucking with them. Mobile orders are paid in advance, right? So if no one comes to pick this up it's still paid for?
    @eversonpoe you're going back to this kind of hell willingly?

    Yes, they're paid in advance.

    I once had a co-worker that basically added everything they offer, the list was two pages long. He did it to mess with them.

    that co-worker is a fucking asshole. we're OBLIGATED to make any drink order that comes in. and like...we're fucking people, not an assembly line. that makes me blood boil.

    i spent all day cracking up about those. i went in for onboarding so i showed my manager and my friend who works there and we were all cringe-laughing. partly because you would need 3-4 venti cups to fit all of that. the extra ice is what really killed me.

    WHAT THE FUCK?! How is this person still able to post things on their platform?

    Eating ass is great, but I'd still be mildly if not considerably annoyed if a non-friend took my likeness and made any inference to sexual acts. I'll let myself be a ho, thanks hahaha.

    Yesterday was interesting because it was brought to my intention that my company's internal code for FAMILY GUY was the three letters bolded. When I expressed my outrage and disgust at that, I was basically told that changing it would not be possible due to it affecting dozens of other stations. Yeah, that didn't fly with me. Got the GM involved and it was changed at lightning speed. Nothing really personally against the person who was unwilling to change it (but I mean, really?), however it's really upsetting to me that this has been that way in the system for years now and it hasn't ever raised concern with anyone else. This particular program is not something my station has aired until this past weekend, so that's why I only just became aware.

    You have to know what I’m on about here though. The guy has also called me “him her” “fairy” and “soy boy” and then he meme’d me in a pretty obviously homophobic way. If THIS doesn’t get you suspended what does?

    the guy has made two memes now, and re-posted one of them after it was removed. FB has also told me (and several other people who have reported it now) that it "doesn't violate their community standards." I just don't get it. FB even removed three of his comments, but apparently this is ok and the guy can go on FB and mock me for being incapable of doing anything about it.

    I'd say the part about respecting "dignity" has been pretty clearly violated here.

    That whole Twitter thread had me transfixed.

    NONE of that shit in that thread is COFFEE.

    It's DESSERT.

    No offense to Starbucks employees anywhere, but as a person who's been drinking coffee since I was, like, two years old (hey, we're Dutch, coffee a big deal, LOL), Starbucks coffee sucks. McDonald's coffee is way better. Those Starbucks orders are just DIABETES IN A CUP.

    It's obvious that this guy knows how to play the FB game. He's a seasoned pro. He knows what he can get away with.

    The only effective method against him is doing the same thing. You can't win via reporting to management.

    Take his picture and post "Fucks his mother" under it.

    The thing is, you're probably right. He probably does know what he can get away with, and he probably knows better how to "tap me back" if I stoop to his level.
    Bullies get off on this. They get off knowing they tapped a nerve, and that you're gonna go tell Dad.

    It means they were successful.

    It starts small with some "opinion" that's intended as bait; someone takes the bait, then they reel the victim in, and then they beat the victim up with their effective bullying skills.

    You can't win with these people. There is NOTHING you can do that will change them or make them see the "error of their ways," and there is no management that will deal out punishment. (And, as we've seen on ETS, even punishment by management often makes them worse.) The only thing you can do at this point is make yourself feel better.

    We've all become pretty used to the safe environment (and relative echo chamber) of forums, like ETS, which are far more moderated by actual people vs. algorithms. You and I have been on here for, what, 17 years? With varying degrees of moderation? I had a big yellow warning bar for a while, when the board management was far more draconian (but probably necessary). I didn't deserve it, I got blamed for shit I didn't do, but that's what happens when shit's out-of-control and the management has to do a smackdown. But since that time, the board pretty much manages itself, and it's peaceful.

    When we're used to this type of environment and then we wade into the anarchy that is Facebook, we experience cognitive dissonance. "Free speech" means experiencing bullying with zero help. The only "recourse" you have, really, is to block the pricks and you can even just cancel your Facebook account. Do what you need to do to preserve your blood pressure and your zen. FB and social media AIN'T WORTH IT. Life is far too short.

    You are vaccinated, California now has THE LOWEST Covid rates in the entire country, get the fuck out of the house and get your life back.

    yeah, and this person won... and he's right, I can't do anything bout it. I guess that's why I'm throwing it in this thread... and I really never do hit the "report button." This was an exception, and I guess I learned something today.

    He didn't "win."

    I know it feels that way, but nobody is looking at him like a "winner." Except you. The guy is a loser and a dick.

    You can do something about it. You can ignore him.

    Which, for him, is a fate worse than death.

    Just block him and move on.

    edit: You want to know how horrible Facebook is with their policies?

    They're this horrible.

    This is why I never post pics of myself on social media, but ESPECIALLY Facebook. You don't own anything you post on Facebook.

    yeah... actually.... I get it. Fuck this.

    If you put yourself out there enough, you have to invite this. And that's got to be ok I guess.

    Woke up to a broken hot water heater today. It's a rental so should be no big deal.

    Called and was told they'd have someone out to replace it between 11 and 2 today. 2:30 no show, so I called to ask what was up, they're now scheduled for tomorrow from 11-3.

    I asked why it was postponed and why no-one called to inform me, was told that they didn't know, but that if no-one shows up by tomorrow at 3, then they'll find out why. They won't find out why they didn't show up today though, but if they don't show up tomorrow, then they'll find out why.

    Meanwhile, no hot water.

    I'm actually annoyed at myself for taking the bait and letting some rando on FB piss me off so much.
    On the bright side, at least FB has decided not to let Trump back on.

    To be honest, I'm regretting ranting about this so much on here. I would appreciate it if anyone who quoted me could edit that out?
