So fucking tired of fighting. Don't understand people not working together. I've even offered to step aside -- fuck, I do it daily -- but no, there's still that seeming need to be adversaries.

I
JUST
WANT
TO
GET
THE
FUCKING
WORK
DONE!

For the love of Jesus!

So I keep having this dream/nightmare. I’m in my garden, chatting to friends, when I slowly begin to levitate a few inches off the ground. I’m mildly amused at first, but panic when I begin to float higher and higher. I have no way to get down and I can’t seem to control where I go. I just float up and up, and all I want to do is get on the ground. It only ends where i suddenly lose that ability and plummet to the ground, dying.

The Difference between “Purposely” and “Purposefully”​

When you use purposely in a sentence, it should be synonymous with intentionally and on purpose. The opposite of purposely is accidentally.

When you use purposefully in a sentence, it should mean “in a way that shows determination and resolve” or, put more simply, “full of purpose.” The opposite of purposefully would be close to negligently or carelessly.

I'm not trying to minimise your personal post but it would be funny if that was an entry in a Minion's diary

When I eat, I always eat from worst to best. For instance, one of my wife's co-workers gave her some homemade tamales, one for each of us. The whole thing was amazing, but I ate from the ends, which is mostly the cornmeal stuff into the middle where all the meat is, saving the last bite to be the one with the largest, most succulent meaty bite. Do the same thing with pretty much everything I eat, I think...except maybe the cereal I eat, 'cause that's harder to control, I think.

I do something similar. It’s like saving the best for last. For example, take fish and chips. I’ll eat the mushy peas first, then the chips, and finally the fish. I think I read somewhere it’s an extremely mild form of OCD, but I just think I’m a weird cunt who likes to separate his food and eat it in a specific order.

I'm really not the kind of guy to whinge about 'creeping wokeness', to me people who warn about 'creeping wokeness' are like farts in elevators - unwelcome, malicious, and entirely unnecessary - but there's one thing where I feel I am ever so slightly intolerant, by contemporary standards...

I really cannot get behind the movement to say being morbidly obese can be 'healthy'. It is cynical as hell, and it is really irresponsible. Maybe a ton of makeup, photoshopping to remove stretch marks and stuff, and pastel colours will make someone who is dangerously obese look healthy, but they're not. All of their organs are under serious pressure, their risk of heart disease and diabetes is in a whole other atmospheric layer to people with weight that is within acceptable limits.


I am sorry, but health-threatening weight should be something that sufferers try to, first and foremost, lose, rather than something used to sell more magazines or outsize frashion brands. Plus sized models should document weight-loss journeys to inspire their fans.

I'm about 10kg heavier than I really should be, 95 when I should be 85, though I'm pretty heavily muscled I definitely eat too much sugar. I don't feel like I'm my heathliest self, and I do feel that it effects my health in certain ways, I don't feel obliquely 'healthy', I feel like a bad boy who aughta get some discipline about junk food.

Everyone; the pope, trump, kpop stars, supermodels, mark cerny, (EDIT: Napoleon, Emperor Hirohito, Hideo Kojima) sit in small cubicles and marinate in the stench of their own dung from between 3 times a week to 3 times a day, on average. Often with subtle triumphant grins at the intensity of the pong.

Seattle Mariner games have been on TV a lot here since they are in the wildcard hunt.

If any of you want to hear the most biased baseball commentators ever, listen to the cast doing the play by play on TV.

Cringeworthy. Might even be worse than The Boston Bruins guy.

It's not healthy.

Ok, maybe some big athletic guys like Bam Bam Bigelow can do cartwheels at 400 lbs like a gymnast but those are rare. Oh wait he's dead at 46 years old.

It comes down to people being lazy and they know it. So best way to self happiness is just accept it. And that's fine in isolation. If somebody is a fatty, drug user or 3 pack a day smoker, that's your life. Just dont be a whiney asshole looking for cheap medical care and everyone to bail you out when youre in the hospital at 40 because you've been dicking around the past 20 years not giving a shit.

But promoting being fat is healthy is another story.

I'd bet every dollar if there really was a magic diet pill that can turn a 400 lb fat person to a normal average sized person (not even fit or ripped), they'd do it in a second. That's why diets are such a ginormous industry. Most people try doing it in secret because they are too embarrassed to tell everyone unless someone asks whats going on because youre only eating a salad at lunch today. The normal way to lose weight is to eat healthier and work out. But that takes time. Humans are conditioned to look for shortcuts even when it costs tons of money, so they'd rather spend money than just reading on the net some healthy recipes and 20 minute workout routines they can do in their basement. Or just jog around the block a few times.

People who complain about things that are intentionally unrealistic are either fucking retards or they're just that annoying kid in class who always thought they were being clever for pointing out obvious things that everyone already knows.

I’ve come to realise over the last couple of days just how lucky I’ve been in the past to have even the most simple of things in life like a roof over your head. There’s people in the world, in my own country, who don’t have that.

100%

It’s very important to understand how other people live, which is why I try to expose myself to them as much as possible.

…..wait…. no…. that wasn’t what I

It’s not until you experience it for yourself that you can truly appreciate the hardships some people go through.
 
Gotta mow the lawns again, I'm sick of mowing my neighbours nature strip out front. They've never returned the favour after years and years. My battle of fuck them vs I want that side of my driveway to look nice continues to rage.

I just found my new favourite podcast, Off Menu, and it’s bloody brilliant. It’s hosted by James Acaster and Ed Gamble, and they have a different celebrity each week to pick their dream three course meal. And I just learnt that the ‘club’ in club sandwich stands for Chicken Lettuce Under Bacon.

My mind is blown.

Was just taking a leak, and noticed one of my pubes sticking out. I was like, damn, that's a long fucker. Holding it taught, I'd say it's about a good three inches. Guess as you get older, your pubes get longer. It's like hippie pubes.

When I eat, I always eat from worst to best. For instance, one of my wife's co-workers gave her some homemade tamales, one for each of us. The whole thing was amazing, but I ate from the ends, which is mostly the cornmeal stuff into the middle where all the meat is, saving the last bite to be the one with the largest, most succulent meaty bite. Do the same thing with pretty much everything I eat, I think...except maybe the cereal I eat, 'cause that's harder to control, I think.
Same. I'm not a picky eater at all (I'll eat anything), but I always save the best to last.

The only exception is when something is time critical (usually stuff best eaten warm) where I'll alternate between the worst to best order with some on the time critical food. I still always leave some of the best stuff to last though, even if it isn't at its best by that point.

Has Billie Eilish released a song in which she actually sings yet?

Because she didn't even break out a full voiced note for a Bond theme song what the hell

i just saw an ad for a movie called 'the eternals' and i am struggling to keep my breakfast down

this shit is everything that's wrong with the 21st century lol, anything for a fucking doller, zero thought towards integrity, this movie is IEDs and smart bombs and school shootings and social media, political radicalization, it's all disingenuous shit perpetrated solely to get clicks/views/donations, sheep following it, lapping it up, puuuke...

i haven't never watched it either but i think the show was at least partially about how they dealt with the changing of those norms

Well, I only checked it out because a couple of clips came up in my recommended vids on YT, and I found them entertaining. But when watching a full episode, I realized the show was merely a very polished, updated Dallas/Dynasty-type nighttime soap opera. It doesn't glorify the lifestyle, but...it kinda does. It takes obvious stabs at the raw obscene behavior, but it also (insanely) subtly glorifies it. It's horrible, truly.

if you want to get lost in an internet hole for an hour, and simultaneously get a perspective of fine central florida culture, google Lady Raptastic and thank me later

This morning as I was making our coffee, it occurred to me that, though we make such a big deal about our high-techie phones, consoles, etc., man, this $20 coffee maker from Wallyworld takes my cold water from the fridge, and literally in about two seconds starts turning it into piping-hot coffee. And this type of technology has been around for decades and decades. Fuckin' wow!
