I put on my pants backwards this morning while getting out of bed so I am not sure how strong I am. I stood in front of the toilet for a good 20 seconds wondering where my dick was at.

Could be because I ate a 20mg gummy before bed.

Edit: I am really high right now grocery shopping and man it’s only old people at this hour.
Damn ur dick looked fine from my point of view...

Wait.

I've revealed too much.

About a week or two ago, I took a wood chisel to the thumb.

When to urgent care and got two stitches and that was it. In and out in 3 hours instead of the 6-8+ hours had I gone to the ER.

A few days ago I felt what I can only described as a *POP* while quite literally was petting my cat and there as been the occasional floppy feeling when moving my arm randomly. Google tells me there is an important tendon/muscle in that area. Watching a UCL repair surgery on youtube shows me that yes, I may have spliced it in twain. Having recently been through a full emergency tour of a local hospital, I'm now thinking that I may have at least gotten a bit more care at the ER then I did at the Urgent Care Clinic.

If you've ever slammed a finger in a door, then you know how trying to use my thumb feels right now.

I wish I had discovered Black Jesus years ago. I just started the second season after binging the first and I can't stop. So damned funny. Slink Johnson kills it as the Lord (he's also Lamar from GTA 5).

WARNING: Not safe for mental consumption.

This fucking company, man...Fucking Satan's working overtime lately, that cock-sucking motherfuck. You know I still haven't gotten this <blanked for confidentiality> shit figured out yet, and it's coming up on time to renew it soon. They don't instruct anybody how to properly submit any of it, or what's required. They have <blanked for confidentiality>, the union, and two third parties <blanked for confidentiality>) involved. One hand doesn't know what the other's doing, no one understands wtf they're supposed to be doing, <blanked for confidentiality> won't admit it, but I suspect (love as her as I do), she's clueless about the process at this point. The updates in the last two cocksucking years have robbed employees of every last vestige we've had. Cocksucking fucking <blanked for...reasons>-ass shit fuckers sucking on their own momma's cocks...

Just been told by a girl I have "the hottest fucking moans" she's ever heard.

That's a big 'ol boost for the ego.
Good for you man!

I was reminded of a nurse taking a blood sample telling me I had sexy veins.
Told her it was a Vampire compliment and useless in the real world.

Alright, let's see if this microdosing thing works.

WTF is this? It’s right outside my door and he’s looking right at me! It’s freaking me out!!

Praying mantis?

I had a praying mantis that looked like it had leaves all over its body on my balcony not long ago. I should have taken a pic. They're not exactly rare around here, but they don't tend to be in places where people can usually spot them. Hiding in trees or bushes or whatever.

i'm looking to get a 2nd phone for work but can't decide what to get. for the last 9 years i've really had no problem using my own phone and giving out my number to people i work with but recently i feel like it's getting a bit too much and crossing a line with how easily contactable i need to be for work related stuff. So i want to have a personal phone/number and a work phone/number. my new boss is really trying to push for us all to communicate on WhatsApp and i fucking hate anything Facebook so i refuse to use it. It's not in my fucking work contract to download that trash and there's really no reason for me to have a work phone. I've explained that I am easily reachable so there's no reason that requires me to join WhatsFuckingApp. Plus, most people in my work have iPhones so i said we can just talk on iMessage it's basically the same thing (to me at least) but i just get blank stares like wtf is iMessage.... (i'm in the UK btw).

Obviously i don't want to spend a lot of money and want the cheapest option possible. So far the cheapest phone I can find is the "IMO Dash 4G" but i don't know if it supports WhatsApp. it has an internet browser but i don't know if I can use WhatsApp on a browser. Only Tesco Mobile do it and they are doing an offer that you get £10 off if you buy a £10 top up so really you're only paying £11.99 for the phone and £10 for a top up. If that doesn't work then i'm looking at the Xiaomi Redmi 9AT or Samsung A13...or some cheap ass nokia/motorola phone. they are around the £100 mark which I know is cheap for a smartphone but still would rather not pay that much. I grudge paying the £11.99 for the Dash 4G.

Can you tell I really fucking hate Facebook? lol

I don't know much of squat about cel phones, but I will say, I'm so, so happy having gone back to an iPhone after some years with a cheapo Samsung. My wife and I got the entry level iPhones (I think they're, like, SE 20-something or other). First of all, the shit this Syri chick can do is awesome to simpletons like us, but most of all, the god-damn OS is reliable. That Samsung just ran like ass, locking up so badly, constantly. Granted, Apple leaves a lot of shit for the user to figure out for themselves, i.e. the iCloud storage, but I'm somewhat getting the hang of it. Bottom line is, I never really have to wait for the phone to...work.

Funnily enough my last phone was a Samsung and my current phone is an iPhone. I love my iPhone but i can't justify buying another one as a secondary work phone. I want the cheapest phone possible.

I'm torn between the Xiaomi and Samsung. With the Samsung at ~£300 I was also tempted to go for the Pixel 6A for that's like £80-90 more. I would go for the Samsung but my partner has a phone from the same range (although ~2 years old) and it's trash. I don't know how she deals with it. I suppose it would be fine for nothing but WhatsApp but £150-300 is far too much for me to drop.

Urgh I don't know what to do lol.

If there will be a world war 3 will I be willing to eat pidgins
I'd rather be annihilated by a nuke than eat a pigeon.

VR frightens me. I can handle it: the concept, the money, the exhilaration, the gaming.

I'm just afraid of what it will become. It is the idea of losing yourself in a world that is not...malleable. Today it is easy to put the goggles on, but tomorrow, it may become habitual, or...routine.

I got the VR for PS4 a few years back, and I am planing to play Resident Evil seven on it, but I have put it off for two years

May wanna make a follow-up appt. with your general caregiver.
I did. He poked at it and asked if it hurts when I move it, then referred me to a specialist.
I saw the specialist today and she just poked at it and asked if it hurts when I move it. Said it was nothing to worry about and told me to come back in a month if it was still bothering me.
 
i dont need to hear your phone conversation from across the street. seriously who the fuck sits in their car with their phone on bluetooth, volume up high, windows down?

Dude, as someone who has been going to literally five different doctors regularly over the past three or so years, I'm very much seeing the medical industry as just that: industry. It's become fast food at this point.

How come we don't have upside-down printers where the page stays still and the printerhead moves like in 3D printers? Printing a picture or text onto notebooks would be useful. An "imprinter"?

Printers as they are currently work fine and I imagine a printer like you describe would need to be much bigger/heavier and use more power. Moving the paper through the printer means the printer doesn't need to move as much. Basically it's just moving side to side. A 3d printer needs to move side to side and up/down. Look at the size of printers right now and imagine how big they would need to be if they needed to cover an A4 piece of paper or even A3/A2. As printers are right now, to accommodate larger paper sizes you just need to make them wide enough.
