Oh that doesn't sound like shy unassuming me.  :angel:


(It is good for lulz though  >:D)
I don't want to hear it. Save your complaints to Odeon. Yes, we had decided to drop hostilities. No, I didnt expect that Odeon would do other than start shit again like he always does
You're not going to stick to "a handful people", are you? That would be stupid.
Damned if I won't respond.
So it's on again & you can lay the blame squarely at his feet. Little passive-aggressive bitch

You are a bad influence on poor innocent little me.  >:D  :P

How to leave a website in true Sir Les style:

Tell an obnoxious member exactly what you think of him and then when his admin friend threatens a banning of both of you , accuse him of favouritism and verbally stick your finger up at them as you walk away.

Yup , I think I did that pretty well last night.  :zoinks:

 :rofl: Where did you try that?

Oh it was just some other forum , not one you're familiar with , would have been funny to do that at AFF though. :trollface:

Why do I have a feeling you also physically stuck your finger up their asses? :autism:

Finger? no , foot? nearly.  :zoinks:

You'd NEVER do that.
To me it looks like you're saying that banning bombs didn't stop bombs going off therefore there is no point to gun control because it's a mental health issue.

The last several days have been epically packed with fucked-up and fail.  JESUS.
it is well known that PMS Elle is evil.

You win this thread because that's most unsettling to even think about.

One can but hope.  Having the sink in my master bathroom start spouting scalding hot water at 2am last night (and all that came with that/seems to still be somewhat coming with that) is something I would prefer The Fates not immediately try to top.

So many goals to choose from, how to prioritize, how...................

Edit:  After I made this post I checked my email.  There was a newsletter on making choices.  I have to shake my head and laugh that I was so lost.  I am religious and G_d gave me an answer to a question I hadn't even had time to ask him. 

Here's the meat of the newsletter (Zen Habits) in case anyone else needs some helping deciding things.

How do you make a choice when you’re stuck at a fork in the road?

How can you decide when two or more possibilities seem equally good?

I’ve been learning (but haven’t mastered) the principles of Effortless Decision-Making. It’s a way of making decisions where you can flow through the constant stream of decisions we must make every day of our lives, without getting stuck, without being paralyzed by fear. We choose, and flow, and we let go of worry.

What follows is a very brief guide to making effortless decisions.

Let go of perfection. We’ll never make perfect decisions, and wanting to make the perfect choice keeps us paralyzed.

Get more information. Don’t let this hold you up, but if you’re stuck it’s often because you don’t have the necessary info. What info do you need? Can you easily get it? Get it now if you can, but don’t be held up by the lack of info.

Try and err. If you don’t have enough info — and that’s usually the case — just choose. It doesn’t really matter what you choose, just make a choice and let go of the idea of making the right choice. Now live with that choice for a bit, and see what happens. This is called trial and error, and it’s often the best way to get information. We try something, and see how it works out — and then we have more information to make better decisions in the future. When you look at it this way, decisions are just a series of trial and error experiments, and it doesn’t matter what the outcomes are, because any outcome is good information.

Try intuition. If you’re stuck and don’t have enough info, let go of worry and just make a choice. How do you make a choice? You could flip a coin, but you could also just go with your gut reaction. What does your intuition say? Start listening to it — often it’s an unconscious decision based on lots of factors that we can’t consciously process, so a part of our unconscious brain processes it and comes up with a split-second decision. Intuition can be wrong, but that’s still OK: we’re going to learn from the results no matter what. So just learn to hear your intuition, and go with it.

Let go of worry. If you learn the above principles, it’s easy to see that there’s nothing to worry about. You don’t need to be perfect, and a decision is very rarely the end of the world (at least, no decision has led to the end of the world yet). Sure, history is littered with the corpses of those who made bad decisions, but there are a million times more decisions that were made without any really bad consequences. You won’t die, you’ll just learn. So don’t worry — just choose.

Practice, and flow. You’ll get better at this with practice, as you learn to let go of perfection and worry and see decisions as experiments. You’ll learn to do it better, faster, with more intuition. Soon you’ll flow through your daily decisions with ease. Do it consciously at first, keeping in mind all of the above principles, but it gets easier as you go.

Making decisions is something we do all day long, and it doesn’t have to be difficult. We build certain decisions up in our minds because we think they’re incredibly important, but in truth they’re rarely that big a deal. This isn’t the Cuban Missile Crisis — we’re not deciding the fate of a nation. See choice as an opportunity to learn, and you’ll be happy for every single effortless decision that comes your way.

A good monarch is a treasure. A good politician is an oxymoron.

My brain is both uninhibited and uninhabited.

I'm barely thinking, I have to admit, but... "I wonder if gparted is done yet?"
