@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:56 PM)

And lastly, if it becomes too much hassle to deal with - it might just get sent into the cornfield and replaced with a Discord box anyway. So cool it.

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:55 PM)

Second thing is we do actually have the ability to ban users specifically from using Shoutbox if it's being abused like that

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:55 PM)

Hey all - just a reminder and heads up. The Shoutbox has been kept here as a courtesy because it's what you folks like in lieu of Discord - but a few things to remember is that P&R should stay in P&R and isn't really something that needs to be dragged out here in the most public of spaces.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2019 - 11:04 AM)

Done.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 July 2019 - 10:25 AM)

You can make a new one. I doubt anybody would stop you.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2019 - 10:16 AM)

There was a thread but it appears to have disappeared. Might have been lost in one of the older forum sweeps.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 July 2019 - 09:58 AM)

Yeah this is pretty much circumventing the fact that we have different rules for political talk.

@  fourteenwings : (16 July 2019 - 09:55 AM)

Okay, so, basically, can we not do politics in here anymore? I mean, considering how often @Nevermore, you talk about your work conditions, don't you think it's time for a dedicated thread in P&R?

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 09:39 AM)

This is an American site, but isn't that unnecessarily severe language? IIRC it's one of the top four offensive pejoratives to English people

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 July 2019 - 08:52 AM)

It's amusing how so many (U.S.) wankers in this world love to whine "capitalism good socialism bad!" in the abstract while simultaneously pretending that megacorporations dominating de facto monopolies is anathema to the core capitalistic principle of competition benefits everyone.

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 05:17 AM)

I know Shockwave's super mode is pretty lame and Magnus is kinda greebly but it's not that bad.

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 July 2019 - 12:38 AM)

Though with the luck and caliber of leaders we've had of late in the darkest timeline, maybe it's too much to hope for.

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 July 2019 - 12:36 AM)

Just like democracy, it's not perfect but better than the present alternatives. Capitalism as it's practiced today won't be able to weather the coming wave of automation, though. Best to plan for it and hope for a gentle transition rather than the aforementioned collapse

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 12:27 AM)

Capitalism is the worst amiright? Sent from my iPhone

@  Vexwing : (15 July 2019 - 11:24 PM)

Because the collapse is gonna be just great.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 July 2019 - 10:41 PM)

Let's hope this is late stage and we're on the cusp of something better.

@  abates : (15 July 2019 - 09:45 PM)

Late stage capitalism is the absolute best.

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 July 2019 - 01:33 PM)

So, welcome to all retail, everywhere.

@  Nevermore : (15 July 2019 - 01:24 PM)

Oh, and Greenpeace also conducted a protest at a German Amazon facility, to protest against Amazon's practice of throwing customer returns in the trash.

@  Nevermore : (15 July 2019 - 01:17 PM)

Right, because with Amazon, it's just the employees that have to step in dog shit while having no space to breathe.[/slightexaggeration]

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (15 July 2019 - 01:03 PM)

At least I can use Amazon without losing the ability to breath or step in dog shit.

I was unexpectedly triggered to a rather serious degree about 10 minutes into episode 2 and had to stop. I'm not sure when I'll be able to pick it back up.

This is what I get for not binge watching like I normally do.

Oh, and for next season, nothing in the whole show would be as unbelievable as if they try to show a bunch of 14-year-old boys in rural Indiana in 1986 turning out to be perfectly woke and accepting of a known gay friend.

Honestly that's the kind of "unbelievable" I can one-hundred percent get behind.

The secondary adults might have more to say about it than the kids do... because that might be part of the story they want to tell.. but I doubt the kids would have any biases against them.  and for all we know they might stick to what we've actually seen so far in the show and Maybe only one person actually knows. 

 

the closet was a very crowded place back then. It wouldn't be inaccurate to show it that way here.

I'm more worried about whoever Will finds himself around next season. New kid. New school. Quiet. Loves nerd things. Potentially gay. We might get enough character development out of Will to make up for the past three years.

I was unexpectedly triggered to a rather serious degree about 10 minutes into episode 2 and had to stop. I'm not sure when I'll be able to pick it back up.

This is what I get for not binge watching like I normally do.

 

if you don't mind me asking...what set you off?

 

The whole opening segment with Mike trying to lie to Eleven over the phone was an irritating lead-in to my reaction, by what truly set me off was Hopper asking El what was wrong, and then when she shut the door, the smug smile on his face hit me down deep, and for a split-second I was enraged, on more than one level. The pinkie-knuckle on my right hand is still somewhat sore deep-down from my slamming my fist down on my desk. The anger came over me so rapidly that my normal restraints against "hitting inanimate objects" as an expression of fury (my old, inappropriate, and highly-flawed coping-mechanism) weren't able to catch it.

 

One of the key things was that Hopper's combination of aggression and manipulation was reminding me of my older Brother, and its not flattering. While I knew I hated much of my Brother's behavior throughout my life, I wasn't completely aware that it would be that triggering. I think part of the reason why is that over the past couple of years I've been doing a lot of introspection on the things that happened around me and to me while growing up, trying to process traumatic events in the hopes that I might be able to get a better handle on my anxieties.

 

My usual state of being over the past few years can be summed up as "unwell". I'm haunted, anxious, and discontent, and dealing with people can deplete my spoons quite rapidly, and its hard for me to let things go. I often dwell in a state of passive suicidal ideation, feeling as if I wouldn't mind if I simply ceased to exist. Its not that I want to die or have any plans on making it happen, but the thought of not dealing with any further emotional turmoil has its appeal. The last time I was actually happy for an extended state of time was at the final Botcon.

 

Anyway, the introspection has probably left me more vulnerable than I otherwise would have been. I have yet to pick the episode back up, and in an attempt to get a lot of it off my mind, I went ahead and spoiled myself for the rest of the season's events.

 

Sorry about getting so dour in the thread.
