I have this thing I think for 10 years now at least - where I can almost have a blackout, my hearing and vision becomes diminished but I an not unconcious - and it comes from what I was doing at he time - bending over too long, or looking to the left sometimes triggers it. Once in a while it hits me just right and my arms begin to feel wobbly. I can still answer questions - I kind of hesitate a bit because I try to remember what it feels like - because the moment someone watches me do it - they ask "What does it feel like?"

After I had a Cat Scan, I found out I have arthritis in my spine - nerve blockage and spinal chord restrictions depending upon how I move.

I've also had throat and lung tests for cancer twice - it was a possibility, but it wasn't there.

Hope the tests look good for you

I've been suspended before, it's likely an error on their part. Just email them and they will fix it.

Good for you, man! Wish I could move back to Seattle. I loved it there. Unfortunately, all of my friends and family live here in Texas, and I actually like my family.

Here's an interesting situation. I work in the publishing industry as a writer for custom magazines. I've been here for the past two years and, to be honest, it's been wearing down on me quite a bit. Between writing about the aviation industry, beauty/wellness features and conducting interviews, I am rather sick of custom publishing. I've been planning for a change since the end of last year, but the ball dropped some time last week when the company lost a rather big account. As such, the editorial department is in risk of losing two writers (out of five). As such, I have been forced to accelerate my plans to leave the company. It's all being rather hectic these days, since I've been updating my portfolio and resume and looking around for possible job openings. Between the possibility of being retrenched, looking for a new job and venturing out into unknown territories, it's been rather stressful for me. I'd love to try out another industry, or another line of work that has more meaning. If you've ever deal with clients, you'd know how stupid they are for the most part. Writing as a career, especially in custom publishing, can sometimes take the love of writing out of you. It grinds you down to nothing, because the end result is usually a bastardized version that great idea you had one night two weeks ago. It is almost impossible to feel proud of your work as a writer, which is why I have decide to take a dive into... well, I don't know what just yet. The uncertainty certainly is troubling, but I suppose I am still young enough to experiment.

Interesting, Shia Lebouf said he dropped some acid at Sundance to prepare himself for a role in which his character is an acid freak.
Does that mean he needs to go out and kill someone in order to prepare for a role in which his character kills someone?

It's freakin freezing in VT at zero degrees and the wind chill on top of that - it's not supposed to get warmer for about three days from the sound of things.

This is when your fingers instantly ache when you touch anything in your car - I've actually had to wear gloves being out last Sunday and Monday, And I hardly ever wear them

I just got depressed thinking about the parallel universe in which I'm a paedophilic rapist.



Oh wait, that's this universe!

I don't know what's more terrifying; the fact that you're a paedophilic rapist, or that you're on #TEAMREDVADER.

Wouldn't it be weird if there were, like, 20 parallel universes in existance and you were a paedophilic rapist in the other 19?

It's all smoke and mirrors as usual at Capitol Hill
House Passes 'No Budget No Pay'

That doesn't mean they will not get paid, it means that if they don't pass a budget by a certain date - their pay will go into an escrow fund, and they'll be paid the full amount by the time congress changes - even if they don't pass a budget.

Ugh, this probably should be in my Bottom Feeders thread

Don't you hate it when a friend brings his other friend that nobody else in the group knows but him, and that person turns out to be a total ******* beyond comprehension? Because I had to sit through what would have been an awesome lunch with friends otherwise. It was downright terrible, ugh. I don't want to go on and on, so lets cut to the worst parts of the conversation he helped lead throughout the meal;


1.) This killer flu that's going around is being caused by mixed races and continuous degeneration of the human race through interracial breeding. And that if everyone just "sticked to their own kind", the CDC would have a much easier time making cures and vaccines to save lives. Yes, he literally said this to us. He also wanted to be sure to point out that just because he was white and saying this, didn't mean that he was racist, it just meant that he was speaking the truth as he saw it.

2.) Did you guys know that the Sandy Hook shooting was a hoax? Yes, apparently it was, and a majority of the parents involved were paid actors by the Obama Administration hired to make matters seem worse than they actually were. In truth, only about four to five children died. The rest of them were either mis-identified or just plain never existed in the first place, which is why Black Ops personnel on scene had to kill the three teachers that didn't evacuate in time. They knew the truth and couldn't live.


I wish this guy was some religious nut, I wish he was a republican so I could say "oh, it makes sense why he'd be that way." But nope, when I asked him which way he voted this election, his response was; "are you kidding me? I've never voted a day in my life and I don't plan to for the rest of it." So I'm at a lost. I've come across these kinds of people before, online, but never once in person. Online, I could say that they were just being idiots because they get to be anonymous and not have to answer for it. But this guy wasn't joking, he wasn't being sarcastic, he was just plain, ugh. I don't even know what the **** to call him.
