    It hurts my heart just to look at that page.

    They just serve burgers and women in nurse oufits that don't fit (with mirrored floors). We wouldn't bother with that bullshit. It'd just be a pit with ridiculous food.

    We'd serve everything in troughs!

    So I'm really nervous about my doctor's appointment tomorrow.

    Best case scenario: I walk out with some pills that will solve my problems.
    Worst case: I'm instituted.

    I have been previously interested in being institutionalized. This is probably mostly because of multiple movies where hijinks ensued and the characters learned something important about themselves. Since my only motivation is from movies I have not pursued this urge.

    If my doctor interprets these as suicidal thoughts he can claim that I'm a danger to myself and I will be put under observation in the mental ward of a hospital.

    right, that's why i've always been kind of put off by that question- or related ones- being asked among friends. if you meet some asshole with his own bottle of grey goose at a kegger, and he goes 'bros, bros, i'm not racist but, did you ever think about the geneti-'... that's one thing. inferences can and probably should be made. but bad faith is assumed in pretty much any conversation with anyone ever on the interbutts, when the topic is sensitive. it's always thrown me off.

    That's what I thought, but at the time I was just struck aback that someone would correct a silly turn of phrase. Like I mean if I said "Make like a tree and his dick was stuck in the chicken" ok thats a combo that doesn't work, but bulls have horns, and if you fucked with one, you would get intimate with said horns.

    I don't care to hear from a creationist what they think about evolution. Sometimes one group is just wrong and the other is just right and repeating that correct information is not an echo chamber.

    I am not referring to this specific situation and framing you as a creationist and the others as people who accept evolution, either.

    yeah but

    1) i don't regard creationism as a reasonable enough position to even bother with respecting their right to hold that position and

    2) i don't bump into a lot of groups of people smugly backslapping each other and making fun of creationists

    So I have this friend... Every single time he gets a new game he bitches about something with the mouse that I never even noticed.

    -Mouselag
    -Mouse acceleration
    -Reverse mouse acceleration
    -Mouse "feels muddy"
    -etc, etc, etc.

    I don't think he's ever played a single game and not complained about the mouse controls.

    yet he refuses to play any game where he has to use a thumbstick to look, because it's not a mouse.

    Incredibly depressing actually, sometimes you meet people who used to function until their event, and you can see in their eyes they know they are broken in a way that will not be fixed. Part of the reason they let not as serious cases see these people, kind of a scared sane style of doctoring. Don't know how effective it is, because both times I visited someone in the mental ward they were too far gone to consider how sad their life currently was.

    Because you've made it very clear you are not asking these questions because you want to know the answers but to rile up people who, entirely in your mind, are too much of an "echo chamber" (and, btw, using that phrase puts you in very good company indeed with a long line of now-banned D&D crackpots).

    Yeah, my couple of weeks spent in a mental hospital was helpful in a few ways.

    One of those ways is that the docs there actually helped me quite a bit with getting my head on straight. Another way it helps is being removed from any hostile environment that might be causing or contributing to the problem.

    And a third way it helped is that I spent two weeks going "Holy shit I don't belong here. I feel bad for these people, but holy shit I'm not this bad."

    I was actually the only one who wasn't there for attempting suicide.

    That's pretty much the point I'm at. Like, dying would suck because it would hurt the people that love me, but for the past year or so life has been nothing but working my ass off to keep my head above water and spending my free time... well, just wasting my free time.
