Random Thoughts: New Thread is New

Everybody knows things are bad. It's a depression. Everybody's out of work or scared of losing their job.The dollar buys a nickel's worth. Banks are going bust. Shopkeepers keep a gun under the counter. Punks are running wild in the street and there's nobody anywhere that seems to know what to do and there's no end to it! We know the air is unfit to breathe, our food is unfit to eat, and we sit watching our TVs while some local newscaster tells us that today we had 15 homicides and 63 violent crimes as if that's the way it's supposed to be. We know things are bad. Worse than bad. They're crazy. It's like everything everywhere is going crazy so we don't go out anymore. We sit in a house as slowly the world we're living in is getting smaller and all we say is, "Please, at least leave us alone in our living rooms. Let me have my toaster, and my TV, and my steel belted radials and I won't say anything." Well I'm not going to leave you alone. I want you to get mad!

I don't want you to protest. I don't want you to riot. I don't want you to write to your congressman because I wouldn't know what to tell you to write. I don't know what to do about the depression and the inflation and the Russians and the crimes in the streets. All I know is first you've got to get mad. You've got to say, "I'm a human being, God Dammit! My life has value!" So, I want you to get up now. I want all of you to get up out of your chairs. I want you to get up right now and go to the window, open it, and stick your head out, and yell, "I'm as mad as hell, and I'm not going to take this anymore!"

i think at this point brick and mortar Blockbuster locations are purposefully "delaying" stuff to push their online service. this is the third week in a row where something has been delayed until friday, with a response of "Well, you can get it now on our website, where you can try it free for two weeks!"

which doesn't make a lot of sense since you'd still get the movie Wednesday or Thursday unless you live very close to the shipping center.

Apparently some bitch is gonna kill herself because I called her an asshole.

people who say they're going to commit suicide usually aren't serious about it, it's more for attention. the ones who actually do don't give much of a notice, they just get it done with and maybe leave a note in the end.

Know what I say to someone who says they're going to commit suicide because of something I said? "Good. Now I don't have to worry about being charged with murder."

:laugh: Yeah, it's true. Anyone talking about suicide might be thinking about it, but not very seriously. If they're talking about it, that means they want someone to convince them not to.

^they suspended you for saying that you were going to kill yourself? you should have just said that you would kill yourself if they suspended you.

I think your teachers watching you get your ass beat is the stupidest thing I've ever heard a school do.

Also, what the hell was your father thinking? That the depression could be beat out of you? Or that you were depressed because you were actually a masochist and nobody gave you the physical pain you were craving? Weird how one socially unacceptable act to lead to another (another being doing nothing).

Netflix is well worth the price for the streaming alone.

did anyone one else think that the other dimension in south park looked a lot like xen?

20081005000127!Xen_halflife_08_AYool.jpg

There's a reason why Xen would look alot like R'lyeh and vice versa. Half-life has alot of smatterings of the Lovecraftian.

Cthulhu and the mythos have been main plot points in the last three episodes.

Half-life was loosely based on Stephen King's "The Mist" (the story), which is HEAVILY inspired by HPL stories like "From Beyond".
