    That reminds me of a thing I saw where people were getting upset over a set of phrases like:
    Nobody is saying your life can't be hard if you're white, but your life isn't hard because you're white.

    Which seemed super obvious to me but some people were really convinced that their other reading was the only possible one.

    Have you considered living the life of a drifter instead?

    here's something that's not upsetting

    https://i.imgur.com/tqWdMLx.webm

    it's a cat

    in a glass box

    life's a game that you're bound to lose / like using a hammer to pound in screws
    fuck up once and you break your thumb / if you're happy at all then you're god damn dumb
    that's right we're on a fucked up cruise / God is dead but at least we have booze
    bad things happen, no one knows why / the sun burns out and everyone dies

    Went to an apartment showing. Six of us viewing the one apartment. Maybe should have hunger games'd it. Of course the guy showing it is speaking rapid German so I just play apartment charades until the end.

    @Evil Multifarious I see Arch already addressed most of what you asked. I'd sort of quibble about the penis sword fights - all that determines is which gamete is used by whomever. They're hermaphrodites.

    But the general idea is sound, and the fact that suddenly everyone is a biologist when it comes to common sense understandings of sex is so fucking ludicrous and angering. Jesus. If you're ever saying "it's not that complicated" with respect to any biological phenomenon, ever, you're deluded.

    Dyna consider that infraction for making an obvious joke like twenty posts too late

    I haven't had a chance to post in chat for like 5 days. I was so excited to even make a tired joke that I rolled the dice. Alas

    Also, 9 years since my last run-in with the man. I better get a lawyer. And hit the gym just in case.

    gym up
    hit the lawyer

    Punching lawyers is probably a poor life choice

    That is extremely upsetting. Is there a path to having 2-day weekends again or no?

    "Get a new job" is, I suppose, technically always an available path, but I feel like I am emotionally overextending myself with the effort of getting out of bed every day so it's hard to consider the reality of something like that.

    Meanwhile yes I am of course fully aware that "pursue changes that will make you happier" is correct and good advice.

    getting a new job for me would require some pretty magic circumstances or like at the very least 4 years of invested time

    because i made some mistakes in my 20s

    like not finishing a degree and sticking with a job that paid really well even though it sucks

    I can't imagine working 6 days a week as the norm. I'm on my 11th consecutive day of work and I've been going to bed earlier each night. Shit, I got 9 hours last night. Today I am a 5 hour energy and a caffeine pill deep and I can still barely function.

    like i'm pretty certain the message wasn't supposed to imply "... and that's a good thing!"

    but i can understand some people reading it that way because it was pretty clumsily executed and MLB's audience is extremely old and whitebread

    Out of boredom I went and dug into demographics.

    Unless you are the NBA most of your audience is white and for most sports, NFL included over 40. But this is mostly through neilson which is people watching TV which is a much older audience normally.

    http://www.marketwatch.com/story/5-ways-mlb-is-trying-to-get-younger-fans-interested-in-baseball-2017-02-22

    Its kind of interesting seeing this.

    NBA and MLS are really the two sports that aren't watched by like +70% white people in the US anyway.

    If by contribute one means to tell a younger person to do it, then yes.

    four out of seven parts done

    (because as I looked closer it was seven, not six. "4_1" and "4_2" are stupid names.)

    that's the very easy parts with geometry that is super simple to construct.

    I still haven't figured out what I need to press to make these other things. Again god I hate this program.
