No, fuck you.
I'd rather have my time, my sanity, and being able to have more than 9-10 hours of the day to myself that isn't mostly spent on sleep while trying to mentally recuperate. God damn people are so fucking brainwashed. Sure, everyone wants an easy, laid back job while racking in that OT but that's not the fucking case at my job. They don't pay us ENOUGH for this shit.

Oh and guess what? Most of the money I make is taxed to shit. I won't ever see that shit back in a tax return. So actually, I work so many hours FOR FREE just to give to the government. Fuck I'm so pissed.

LOL i get that this job is shitty and totally beneath you. Hell, it's beneath me too. But if you come into work with a sucky attitude and just sit on your phone most of the day instead of working, it really doesn't help matters. Maybe if you didn't want to do grunt work you should've signed on with a temp agency. For fuck's sake. One of the gals from the office walked in and caught you taking selfies while I was on lunch. Wow.

Here's hoping one of the other jobs I applied to comes through. I personally don't mind what I'm doing now even if it's way below the scope of what I could be doing, because hey, my bills get paid and the client gets helped, but gosh, I could be doing more.

This is old, but I'm so sorry anon, I know what you are going through. I had to get a really invasive surgery a few yeras ago and the recovery was about two months long. I was in terrible pain for most of it even though I had painkillers.

Not a single friend who knew made time for me before it nor visited me during that time. Only a couple long of distance friends checked up on me every now and then, which I really appreciated.

I had a couple of friends who were supposed to hang with me before and after my surgery, but they all bailed for a shitty reason the day of. At that point I was well enough to hang with them almost like normal without making it seem like I was in pain, so idgi.

Mind you, when my friends so much as get a sniffle or have a bad day, I try to do something nice for them, or at least chat with them so they don't feel lonely, let alone how much I do for them otherwise.

I'm probably a huge doormat compared to you which was my issue, but basically it really sucks when your friends aren't really there for you or don't respect the time with you. Sure they can't drop everything and be there for you all the time, however a call or a text from time to time would have been nice, let alone getting their shit together to be able to spend the last day with you for a while as they originally said they would.

Before my surgery, I even told my friends outright that just because I'm recovering, doesn't mean I don't want to hear from them and it would make me happy. They all fucked off.

I really wanted to kill myself during quite a few days during recovery out of pain and loneliness, because my body didn't work right anymore and everyone forgot about me. Now I don't really bother with those people because it became clear they only thought of me when they had something to gain. The entire time during my recovery, they would be in my area fucking around or posting on their twitters about how much white men suck, how they won't apologize for being (insert minority here), and "muh depression." (Which is just a bit fat pity party for most of them and they are spoiled and pampered brats, although I tried to console them about it for years prior anyway.)

Sorry for the rant, but I hope your recovery is going well and you have at least a few people who are there for you and reaching out. I never thought a prPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

I lost all my long term friends about a year ago thanks to a jealous former fried who decided she wanted to show back up in my life, create a bunch of graphic rumors about me fucking randos from okcupid and destroy my reputation and ability to get a job in my home town.

Since then, I’ve felt so empty and lame, nothing I used to enjoy feels good or is interesting anymore. I feel like I don’t deserve friends and that maybe I really am jus a stupid, ugly loser whore that people only talk to because of my big tits (even though it’s been going on 2.5 years since I’ve even kissed a guy but w.e). I just feel so shitty and it’s been a fucking year but I can’t seem to get myself back up. I’m afraid to go to all the places I used to go because I’m aftaid of running into them again. I ran into one of them at the grocery store a few weeks back and she acted super nice and friendly, and like everything was fine and she wanted to catch up and hang, but it turned out to be a prank.

I’m just wondering what I did to deserve this bullshit, and how one girl can manage to make so many people be known gen years turn against me with just baseless rumors. And why nothing I say or do helps.

I’ve been trying to make new friends, I can’t keep a stable job since I lost my good one but I am meeting a lot of new people at them. Unfortunately, whenever I think I’ve made some new friends and try to make plans to hang out, they start avoiding me and leaving me on read and cancelling plans. It’s like no matter what I do and no matter how well things seem to be going, after a few months they just disappear.

I use to be apart of a League of legends group when I was in my mid-late teens. Everyone posted a picture of themselves to put a face to their name, there was a large group of guys that vastly outnumberes the girls. Most of the girls were cool except for this one chick. She loved being the "troll" by being loud, obnoxious, bitchy and rude to everyone, we'll call her Betsy. The guys had a weird hard on for any asian girl and me being asian they gave me more attention, since Betsy wasn't getting any of the attention she started trolling and bitching at me, it was really unpleasant being around the channels she was in. After some time she started using my profile pictures and started leading on and lying to new members that I was her. I told the group lead about it but he brushed it off as "Betsy is a troll XD" I was annoyed that nothing could be done about it. I tried confronting her but she didn't comply and still used my picture. I ended up leaving the group later on and that was that. I don't know if Betsy is still using my profile picture or if she's still in that lol group.

I use to go to a chatroom when I was 12. The legit teens would add eachother on FB. Everything was normal but 1 person.
Everyone believed it was him, especially since one in the group claimed to have video chatted on MSN with him and Skype. She lied though for some unknown reason. He tried saying he was 18 and used pictures of a UK model I think. A friend of mine in the group exposed him with a simple Google reverse image search and his empire came crumbling down. He catfished for girls to like him. One of my friends added his real profile and said he was much easier to talk to and less scary.

That's not the end. He is still on the same profile catfishing today. Deleted anyone who knew. I'm 19 now. He's been at it for years.

No. 203654

I guess the closest thing I've expereinced to a Catfish was someone I befriended online many years ago. For years she told me that she was from a neighbouring country and that she was a few years older than me. I believed it because she genuinely did look older than me and she did sound like she had a slight accent (although she could have been putting it on). I used to look up to her like a kind of big sister (since I didn't have one).

I found out later that she was the exact same age as me and lived about an hour from where I do. I wasn't angry when I found out, just really surprised. We met up and she was just the same (personality-wise) as she was online. I just wished she had told me sooner because she was such a great friend. I understood why she did it though because we met online initially. We were both pretty young and it's common for kids to lie about their age. Plus I probably told her where I was from first and she freaked out and lied about her location to protect herself.

No. 203655

I used to roleplay on fb when I was 14 or so and through that I met this guy and his boyfriend who were p chill people and we added each other on our personal accounts as well. His boyfriend had a little sister who'd occasionally show up too, we'd have tinychats together and stuff like that, but they (the boyfriend and his sister) wouldn't ever be online at the same time. Eventually my friend and I found out the 'sister' was catfishing both of us since she made the entire profile and persona of her 'brother' up. It was kinda fucked up because shortly before we exposed her, she confessed her love to me through her fake brother. My friend still stayed together with her for a few weeks after that though and I never understood why.
Idk what she's up to nowadays though but I'm kinda curious.

A guy from a group in a texting app.
He was around 25 and was in a groupchat I joined for the keks. He was very weird, he was fat and ugly, definitely didn't look 25 but still a nice guy overall. He had some amazing life story about how he left home at 17 and got a job and hadn't talked to his family since. He was in university doing some engineering even though all the work he showed us was Greek literature or something like that. He said he worked from home but didn't really have much to do so he just spent the day shitposting on the chat. He was very attention seeking but funny so we let him do his ting. He had an online exgf who he had met and had all kinds of sex stories (getting pegged next to a church in the street tier). He also said he was depressed and almost proud of it. Kept talking about how he wanted to kill himself and how he didn't shower in a month, that kind of stuff. One day he said he was going to attempt suicide taking pills then call an ambulance as a cry for help. I was the person he talked to most so I got really worried and cried a lot and tried to help him, but he still did it. Two days later he came back saying he was in the hospital and that he was going to need surgery cause of some organ failure or something. We started getting suspicious cause so many things didn't add up. His surgery was one hour then he was back shitposting, he was on his phone while on suicide watch which we thought was very weird, he was allowed to go to the shops in front of the hospital (after a surgery and suicidal? Don't buy it), he kept getting almost gourmet food from the nurses.. After 4 days in hospital he came into the chat in his computer account and I had enough of the weirdness so I asked him how did he have his laptop with him if he didn't have any family to bring it to him. He said he talked to his mom and she brought it. I asked him to show us in his a phone the 911 call when he attempted suicide and he said he didn't a call an ambulance but his mom. We started getting angry cause this was obviously bs so we asked him to show hospital room and he ignored it and got angry as in "how could you not trust me", then left the chatroom. At this point everything was very weird so I went to talk to his ex (who I knew cause he gave me her username one day) and the truth started coming out. I told the guy I talked to her and he started spilling the beans. He never attempted suicide, he was at home. He wasn't 25, was 14. He used his 40yo dad's pPost too long.

i'll check it out i think i saw it at the library!

code is about building a computer from the ground up, logically. it starts off with basic switches and morse code and then gets to logic gates eventually it'll build up to operating systems and etc. i picked it up to learn more about computer science (hardware since i'm a software person), but you don't need to be knowledgeable about the field already - the author has really well done explanations about every concept. his illustrations are also helpful in clarifying what he talks about and the overall tone makes me feel really excited to learn.

currently reading "Special Topics in Calamity Physics" by Marisha Pessl and I honestly can't wait to finish it because it's such a tedious book. The story itself could be much better if the book was just half as long as it is (around 600 pages). And what still angers me that I had to read about 350 pages to get finally to the main reason why the main character tells her story, which is actually super interesting BUT as I already said, the first hundred pages are filled with unnecessary side-stories, endless quoting of other books or memories within memories which made me skip sometimes an entire page bc it had just NOTHING to do with the actual story. So much wasted potential.

If you plan to read this book, just get ready for a lot of things that have no point of being there.

I still have to read around 100 pages, because I already spend so much time on it, now I want to finish it and put away and never read it again in my damn life.

My cousin has Down Syndrome and today he intentionally killed my pet mouse because I wouldn't drive him to the mall. He shows absolutely no remorse. He's 4 years older than me and has been cruel to me my whole life. His mother has always refused to see it.

Abortion is literally eugenics. If you're openly pro abortion then you should openly admit you're pro eugenics too.

Everyone knows abortion disproportionately targets black and disabled babies.

No. 203668

Good, we need that kind of eugenics. I don't see how anyone with a rational mind would oppose ridding the human species of disabled individuals altogether.
Lower class economically, pregnant more often. More black people aborting doesn't mean less black people all around. Just means black people having better chances to rise from poverty because they don't need to feed twelve babies by the time they're fifteen and can actually get some education and build a career.

But this is bait of course. If you really opposed abortion you'd talk about richer, smarter and more educated people opting out of having kids and aborting if they're preggo while poorer, dumber people are too retarded to realize they shouldn't breed

These families may appear to be 'happy' and 'coping' but either their child's disability isn't too extreme or they are getting enough outside support to be able to cope, but it still takes a toll and most of these things come at a price.

My sister is severely autistic, low-functioning, non-verbal with some other intellectual disabilities thrown in. My family is solid, but my parents have had to sacrifice much of their life for the past 34 years. I think deep down my parents are very angry, resentful and full of regret about the things that have happened to them and my sister.

It's not easy and coping takes a great deal of strength and willpower to overcome with a lot of anguish. I admire my parents strength and character to have never really faltered in their position, but I do not wish this struggle upon anyone and can understand if people had the choice to abort why they would.

If my parents could have had a diagnosis of my sister in the womb, and knowing what they know now, they probably would have aborted. My sister's quality of life and the trauma she experiences without a voice is just so horrendous to consider.

Itt one poster acts the part of Rita Repulsa while the 2nd player acts the part of the Power Rangers as a whole, the storylines and rules for each of the 2 players of the game are as follows

Player 1: you are Rita Repulsa and have recently discovered how to resurrect every monster of yours the rangers have defeated thus far, but to counter this the rangers manage to banish them all to the Scooby Doo universe shortly after their resurrection. Not willing to accept defeat so easily Rita Repulsa uses this new power of hers elsewhere, itt roll the dice (1 die) all numbers from 1 to 6 will determine wich slasher film character will be risen from the grave, the designated number for each character belongs to the order in which the movies were made, for example Jason Voorhees may hold the number 2 spot while the Leprechaun may hold the number 6 spot.

Player 2: you are the Mighty Morphing Power Rangers and your arch rival Rita Repulsa has sent down a new enemy the likes of which you have never seen, working together though you manage to defeat him just like every other monster, but just like every other monster Rita Repulsa throws her staff down to earth to make this slasher fim character bigger, your normal g1 Megazord may not be enough this time around so the rangers must summon from across time one of many different variations of Megazords that existed throughout the show, roll the dice (1 die) to determine which one, they will be in order from 1 to 6 as they appeared in the show.

Rules for both players: both players must do reaserch depending on which slasher film character you got or which Megazord you got in order to accuratly know fully what both character's strangths and weaknesses are and be able use that research to prove beyond a reasonable doubt to the other player which would win the fight.
