    WELL

    I caught this steam burn on my hand a few days ago , from opening some soup that had been in microwave.

    And I just woke up, and that shit is now like, RIDICULOUSLY infected. Like it's all dark, with a halo of red skin, and it hurts like a motherfucker and looks like it's spreading.

    This types of shit was precisely what I was afraid of. FUCK. I better get to the dr quick before they wind up having to cut my thumb off or some shit, but, here's the thing: what can they DO? I mean, this medicine is a weekly shot that takes a couple of months to build up and kick in. So it's not like I can just, not take it tomorrow and my immune system will be back to normal. Also, I don't think you can take antibiotics while on this shit. I guess ima find out, though.

    At least this: dude to my bleak sense of humor, I think it's fucking hilarious.
    Steam burns are the worst. Use some triple antibiotic oinment and keep it covered. Heard a thing at work about slathering burns in mustard. A freind burned the shit out of himself on hot steel doing some forging. He was burned but not really that bad. Around this time I vwas chatting with some other cat who happened to say the same thing. Even read it a few times in fb cooks group im in. That said I've tried it myself and it seems to help but these have been fairly minor grease burns. Good luck.

    thanks, dude. It actually worked out: I slathered it with Two Metric Fucktons of Neosporin, and did see the dr, and now, it's close to all right.
    Man. I couldn't believe that shit. I had caught some milder steam burns working a stint at a cafeteria, but it was nothing like this.
    I didn't have any idea how bad I'd been burned until the next morning when I noticed, like, an ABSURDLY huge blister, both in length, and especially, height. It was like cartoonish. What happened with the puss was cartoonish. But it didn't HURT for a few days because, I guess, the nerve endings were burned?
    I say goddamn. This all happened because of an innocuous little cup of Sam's Choice Lime Flavored Chicken Tortilla Soup. I'd like to beat Sam's ass, lololololololol.
    Sorry if I'm rambling, but man, you're definitely right about the nastiness of steam burns. I've caught all kinds of burns in my absurd, rock and roll lifestyle, but the only thing that was worse than this shit was getting on the back of a Harley and cooking my leg on the muffler.

    My crazy neighbor ... Dude has no life, apparently no job either, outside this 5 unit building. I'd get into it but I'm locked in until November. More sure to come. Also, floor turkey ...

    I've been vaping instead of smoking for some years now. My favorite flavor is Whatever Is On Actual Clearance, aka 15ml bottles of Zeus Juice for $.99 from the head shop in Amarillo. I'll get 30 or 40 of those when I'm in Amarillo, and it's always worked great, until today.

    I got a few bottles of a flavor called 57 Chevy. I figured it was some sort of metaphorical name: perhaps it was cherry flavored, or tasted like old school tobacco.

    I was wrong.

    THIS shit is an aberration. You guys know the smell of seat leather in those old mustangs? That's what this tastes like. It tastes like the inside of an old mustang smells.

    I like that SMELL, but it's not something I wish to INGEST, in any way, ever.
    I wonder who in the hell thought this was a good idea?
    It's ROUGH. It actually makes me sick to my stomach.

    "cancelled"

    I understand the idea of it, but seeing the term thrown around so often is starting to make me roll my eyes.

    @allegater and @onthewall2983 , can you guys please explain?
    I assume we aren't talking about tv shows/movies being cancelled.

    Edit: nevermind, I've got it. And I don't think it's going away anytime soon.

    To me it seems like glorified bullying more often than not. I wish Black Mirror would make an episode about it.

    Edit: actually, Black Mirror did make an episode about it, in a way. The episode with the killer bees. People on social networks were voting which of the famous people should die next, right? To me, it does seem like a cancel culture brought to an extreme level

    Edit 2: oh, my first faceplam! Thank you, Sarah

    This Midwest flooding. It was already a tough season/year for agriculture because it has been so cold, so crops were struggling. And now so many of those crops are just lakes with ice chunks in the middle. By the time everything is cleaned up and ready to be planted, it will be way too late in the season, so some farms will be losing a whole year of income and take huge losses.

    It is also calving season, and my brother's place has already lost a ton of calves. They have to basically stay with them 24/7 so they don't lose more.

    Get ready for super expensive groceries in a couple of months.

    This is all so awful. My heart really goes out to all Midwest farmers. It's heartbreaking. I'm willing to pay more to help with losses.

    the kitten that i'm taking care of woke me up at THREE AM when she discovered how to turn on the kitchen sink -_-

    i guess i'm thankful she started yowling because otherwise i would have slept through the sound of the water, thinking it was a radiator. but like...jeez, dude, it's 3am.

    Really? Jeez I didn’t want to tell the ENTIRE story here due to drift and size but it was 30 years ago, I had 50 DUIs, did 20 years in prison, I killed a prison guard, got out early for good behavior, became an ordained minister, my life has changed, and I waited several hours that night to drive to the hospital because you can’t call 911 for a burn. Now when I get heroin burns I just Uber to the hospital.


    “Cancelled” came from Black Twitter.

    way more big than little...

    someone i've known online for nearly a decade (never been super close but have always admired her & her art, and drawn inspiration from her) put up a gofundme today to try to help cover expenses incurred from a rape & subsequent abortion that happened as the result of a date she went on while trying to recover from a failed relationship in which her partner had deceived her and left her in debt.

    i donated what little i could at the moment and she already reached out to thank me, but i just keep crying. no one should have to go through something like that. the continued prevelance of sexual assault in our world is abhorrent. i wish there was a way to drill it into the heads of people that you don't just get to take what you want from someone, especially in a sexual context. recovering from sexual assault is sometimes a life-long struggle; and while i'm still dealing with aspects of it 17 years later, i can't even imagine how much worse it would be to have gotten pregnant as a result.

    if you feel inclined to donate

    cross-posted from the heavy music thread

    saw Thou on friday night. opening acts were a collaboration between Matchess (who i played a show with a few years back and is amazing) & Talsounds, which was fantastic, and Emma Ruth Rundle who played solo with her electric guitar.

    Thou started their set with quieter stuff from Inconsolable and ramped up the volume and intensity as their set went on, which was fantastic. i almost cried while they played because it was so emotionally cathartic.

    on the negative side, during the first set break, two dudes who turned out to be proud boys started fucking with me & my friend Alex. they started out just seeming drunk and antagonistic, like they were trying to get a rise out of us. arguing about white people "not being that bad" and "we wanna go talk to that cute-ass girl but she'll think we're predators; we're not predators!" they also asked what we thought of some guy whose name i didn't recognize, and if we thought he was a hero or a villain, "you know, the incel king who shot all those women and then killed himself."

    at one point, one of them stopped mid-sentence and asked "wait...are you two gay together?" to which we replied, in unison, with zero hesitation "yes." so then he goes "ok...ok...there's nothing wrong with that. i'm not gonna...just don't turn your back on your race." at that point, Alex kinda lost it and started being combative right back, and eventually got them to leave us alone. my heart was beating so god damn fast and hard, and i felt like i was gonna throw up. i'm so glad that Alex was there with me and is pretty good and handling situations like that, because i'm terrified of what would have happened if i was alone.

    but also, like...what fucking show did they think they were at? in total, 6 women played and 5 men, and Thou has pretty far-left politics. why would two sexist white supremacists show up?

    My husband G and I were at the Cure show at the UIC Pavilion in June of 2016.

    G (a Cure fan since '79-80 and has seen them many many times since 1984) went to the men's room and came out, sat down next to me, seemed kind of disturbed, shaking his head.

    I asked him what was wrong.

    He said a guy was in the men's room wearing a skirt. And then when that guy in the skirt left, a few guys started LOUDLY poking fun at the guy in the skirt.

    Now, considering the Cure's background of having pretty well-rounded non-conformist fans, and considering that MEMBERS OF THE CURE HAVE WORN SKIRTS ON STAGE, poking fun at a guy wearing a skirt at a Cure concert made ZERO sense.

    But, we realized - even by the reactions of the crowd to gay couples around us - that the 1980s Cure crowd is nothing like the 2016 Cure crowd.

    These crowds now are filled with aggro tourists.

    We were at the Nine Inch Nails "Spiral Member Only" Key Club show in March of 2006. We were in the back by the bar, and two big dudes were standing next to us, going over their "plan."

    Paraphrasing: "Okay, so, when Nails hits the stage, we're gonna go up there, and we're gonna start fucking people up!"

    And that's pretty much what they did.

    i will never​ understand the desire to cause other people pain or discomfort. it just doesn't compute to me.

    seriously considering contacting my lawyer to deal with some guy on social media who publicly said he was "going to fuck [my] wife."

    This is the tip of the iceberg. He's been private messaging her with comments about how she should be into him instead of me, and it gets weirder from there. He's repeatedly assured her he's going to fuck her, with her responding with "FUCK OFF! LEAVE ME ALONE!'

    Part of me is like "fuck it he'll just go away," and another part of me is fucking livid and pissed. He even gleefully sent me a message saying "I just called your wife a cunt and you can't do anything about it."
    I can afford a lawyer, can you?

    @Jinsai Ew! Do you know this guy personally? Does he live near you? Then I would call the cops and place a harassment claim or something.
