The election committee whose chairman I am has been preparing this election since February. There's no real gain for me either way, so I don't care that much for the outcome, but it's going to be a stressful day for me either way.

@  Nevermore : (05 May 2021 - 03:13 PM)

Wish me luck. Tomorrow is this year's supervisory board election at my workplace, and I'm the guy in charge of organizing the election.

It's a fairly well known fact that "it's a wonderful life" only became popular after it dropped into the public domain. So, yeah, they probably did.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (02 May 2021 - 08:29 PM)

I read an interesting observation on Twitter. If it is the natural course of a human to grow into Grandpa Abe yelling at a cloud, but nostalgia also yields rose-tinted glasses for the likes of one's youth, then did Greatest Generation adults bemoan how Baby Boomer children loved box office flops such as The Wizard of Oz and It's a Wonderful Life?

@  Otaku : (02 May 2021 - 09:26 AM)

At the same time, with my almost non-existent knowledge of Japanese and how oddly some things translate, seeing "Gorgeous Giorgios Gorges" made me wonder if that would make it "JoJoJo"... which now has my brain terrified of a weird Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo/Jojo's Bizarre Adventure Crossover. @[email protected]

@  Otaku : (02 May 2021 - 09:24 AM)

It is always weird when things align.  This talk of Gorgeous Giorgios Gorges in the SquawkBox reminded me of King Gorgeous Gorge on the FoxBox.

@  -LittleAutob... : (01 May 2021 - 08:52 PM)

Nice

@  Nevermore : (01 May 2021 - 09:03 AM)

I got one even better: After that character by the name of Gorgeous Giorgios dies in a gorge, they name that whole area after him: The Gorgeous Giorgios Gorges.

@  tigerhawk : (30 April 2021 - 01:56 AM)

Paint apps did slide notably during TR, wave one's Titan Masters had detail but wave 2 onwards was absent of them. Wave 5's Ramhorn, Dreadnaut, Scorchfire and Aimless had detail but Murk and Hazard didn't, can't speak for Flameout as I got Legends Twintwist and Slugslinger.

Other than a few overly tight joints, the paints apps are my single complaint about the generations line.

@  tigerhawk : (29 April 2021 - 02:25 PM)

I just saw Legends Leo Prime now I wish Titans Return Alpha Trion had a few more paint apps for ship mode.

I'd like to know what society he's talking about, and what qualifies as "nothing", TBH.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (26 April 2021 - 05:09 PM)

I don't see the point in such a poorly defined "everyone is terrible" statement. He's not complaining about any specific people or specific problems.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (26 April 2021 - 05:06 PM)

I do not see anything about Bass's comment that felt a need for you to attack him.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (26 April 2021 - 04:35 PM)

Bass: does that "everyone" include yourself or are you just trying to act like you're better than everybody without actually proving anything?

@  wonko the sane? : (26 April 2021 - 04:10 PM)

Mostly it's "oh, don't say that right now" and "better learn when to duck".

@  Bass X0 : (26 April 2021 - 04:05 PM)

There's something to be said about society when everyones just an inch away from snapping over nothing.

@  Sabrblade : (21 April 2021 - 11:55 PM)

Glenn Morshower would agree. He goes to auditions with his shoes full of syrup.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 April 2021 - 04:28 PM)

Please, maple syrup can only improve alot of content.

@  Donocropolis : (21 April 2021 - 03:33 PM)

Well, not release it into Canada, no. You'd just get maple syrup all over it.

@  TM2-Megatron : (21 April 2021 - 03:21 PM)

what bothers me most about Canadian rights is that, oftentimes, the rights holders for certain content don't even seem to have any interest in releasing it

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 April 2021 - 10:46 AM)

It'd be mostly the same even in a world with global copyright law, since even the shortest terms are very long.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 April 2021 - 10:39 AM)

You got me, I just want to watch cartoons without having to pirate them for once.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 April 2021 - 08:41 AM)

Also, how would copyright law standardization be enforced? I doubt any country's governments would be eager to start trade sanctions over it.

I think you've told us about this before. I'm not sure what to say. It's one thing when you're the one with the problem and it's up to you to take action. It's a different story all together when it's someone you care about who refuses to do what needs to be done.

I hate to say it, but at this point I don't think there's much if anything you can do about your sister. She's making her choice. I think what you can do is what you're doing. Find help for yourself so you can get your own head on straight.

I don't know what you can do about the kids. I'd hope that aunts, uncles, grandparents, etc. wouldn't be punished for the actions of a parent. I just don't know how those situations work. I hope for the best though.

Despite hitting a cop, and ranting and raving: she apparently had enough sense to volunteer for treatment at the hospital, and as a consequence, will more than likely be released on monday.

 

So we get to go through all this again in about a year.

I think it might be good to seek help for yourself. A therapist may be able to help you with how to handle your sister.

 

Recently I got a call from someone looking for a former colleague's contact info. Apparently he posted online that he was going to kill himself. Even though we don't have anything on how to deal w/ that sort of situation, I didn't want to waste time seeking a boss's approval and gave her the info. Kinda glad that one of my previous jobs taking calls from the public included training on how to handle these things. Still shook me up a bit. I hope he's ok.

Sister was released today.

 

It's a five minute drive from her place to ours. In that time, she started a hugging fight with her partner. So yeah, she learned nothing, and her next act will be to stop taking the meds. Not even any remorse for attacking him.

 

edIt: 20 minutes in, and my parents are on my way over there to calm her down. Absolutely nothing has changed at all.

I hate to say this, but what I'm hearing is making me think it's time to say this.

 

As much as she may be stressing you out and infuriating you I think there's still a certain amount of "she's my sister and I love her" going on. Otherwise you wouldn't be stressing about this.

 

However, I truly think it's time for you and possibly even your parents to withdraw. As much as I'm sure you want to help her, you've said yourself that she refuses to listen.

 

my two cents "until you start taking things seriously, don't come around to my house. No birthdays, no holidays. Until you start trying to get better, I don't want to see you."

 

This may even mean you have to let her do prison time. But until she starts getting real about this, I don't know what else you can do.

 

Now of course if she starts to truly get her life together, by all means welcome her back with open arms. But until then, it's harsh, but it could very well be what it takes.

I'm not worried about her. Not at all. I'm worried about her husband, her children, and my mother. She's hugging killing us all slowly, and does not care.

 

As for welcoming her back with open arms: that's been my MO in life. One time one of my best friends in this world fell into a relationship with someone who was horrible for him. He wound up... I'm saying "cutting off contact" with all his friends, but it wasn't abrupt. It happened slowly over months. He literally disappeared from our lives for 3 years straight. One day we got a call from him out of the blue: he had dumped her cause he figured it out. She was toxic. When he called and asked if he could visit, we treated it like it had been a weekend since, not 3 years. A hug for a brother, a cold bottle to warm the heart, and let him tell it his way if he wants.

 

This bitch has burned her bridge with me. I would sleep easier tonight if her husband called and said she was ejected from the apartment. Let her be homeless, let her pick a fight she can't hugging win in some forsaken homeless shelter, and let her be a hugging obituary already: the rest of us will be better off for it cause from where I'm sitting; she will NEVER change.

 

Edit: okay... I thought I was emotionally exhausted before. I'm going to be alone most of tomorrow afternoon, I'm going to call the mental health line and see if I can talk to someone...

So, I need some advice.

 

That friend I mentioned falling for? I fell hard. Harder than I thought I did, and I'm having a really tough time letting go. It doesn't help that I get a bunch of mixed signals from them that just confuse the hell out of me.

 

I don't want to cut the friend out of my life. I like them as a person, and we share a mutual friend group.

 

But all the suggestions I'm finding online for moving on - go to a new gym, find a new cafe!, weekly movie nights! - don't really apply when you've got a global pandemic and you're in the "high risk" category.

 

Basically, how the heck do I move on here?

Oh hell! When it comes to matters of the heart, I'm the dead last person to take advice from. I mean, I don't think it would be a bad thing to just take a break, get some distance and allow yourself to get your head on straight.

 

Anything more than that, I'm the dead last person to give relationship advice. You have my sympathy though and I hope it turns out.

Had a meeting on Friday which I asked for. What a shambles that was.

Took a union rep in with me but she largely sided with the manager. Me having constant self loathing suicidal thoughts was treated like a child having a tantrum and apparently it's my fault for not talking enough and it's on me to reach out to the people who daily abuse me (verbally and physically) to make this right.

I can't fully believe it. And the language banded around about 'mental illness' makes it clear they largely see this as me being paranoid.

I really hate that the path I had to leave in 2016 collapsed and with the UK economy about to absolutely collapse come January...

I just can't believe that someone telling you they feel by very real proof that everyone hates them gets them branded the arrogant one. hug sake, I work with people who stand around delivering long and loud pro-far right sermons!

So I don't care if this outs me at the moment.

 

Had a friend s**t on me last night for wanting to "talk." The same one I've been dealing with the entire f**king year. The same one that's said they had feelings for me and then completely denies ever saying it.

 

I have ONE therapy session before I'm completely screwed for October. I'm supposed to be using that for coming up with coping strategies for dealing with, you know, a month without seeing the therapist.

 

Instead I'm going to be talking about this other thing.

 

I'm tired of people. I really am.

 

I feel like I've made a good faith effort here. I've done my part. I've owned up to mistakes that I've made. I realize that I can be annoying and want to talk too much. I get it. But, I also feel like I've been lead on for the past two years by this person and - I'm just tired.

Can anybody with ADHD / Adult ADHD chime in here? I've got a question.

 

I'm not sure how to phrase this, so bear with me.

 

Say you're on social media ALL DAY. Like Kardashian levels of social media use. Especially while at work.

 

Are you then "too busy" to talk to people one on one?

I suppose it depends on how they perceive social media. If that IS how they interact with people, then yeah the "too busy" excuse works for them because they're too busy feeding a crippling addiction.

 

So HEY! Guess who's off her meds again!

Honestly? He claims to be too busy "working," but spends a good chunk of the day jumping between twitter and facebook.

 

And then when I try to say "hello," I'm the bad one for interrupting his "busy" schedule...

 

I don't have ADHD, so I'm trying to understand if this is a legitimate thing or if he's found a way to excuse bad behavior.

Yeah. I figured as much. He went off on me when I tried to get him to explain how the two - I'm too busy / Always On Social Media - can coexist.

 

I'm kind of...

 

Done isn't quite the right word. I'm over being abused.

We're mutuals on a number of social networks. I keep my following count limited. When they make post after post while they're "busy working," it's pretty easy to tell, if that makes sense.
