Peeved. We were meant to go shopping today but Kayleigh had a headache. We have hardly any food so I guess it's takeaway food tonight.

Not well.
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.

Update following my bitch on the 7th
I've had an icy draught blowing through my house since Christmas
...
rant rant rant
...
Finally. I've managerd to get myself warm through again. So warm, in fact, that I've broken out in a sweat several times over, and was  actually forced to remove my thick  jumper .
I love being too hot.  I feel almost functional when i;'m too hot, and am now making progress with tidying up etc.
Still sleeping waaay too much though :(

*offers big squeezes to 'Raxy, the Renster and our dear walkie.

And glad you are now warm walkeh, its always easier to put more clothing on than take it off, in the latter there is an eventual limit reached, if too hot beyond which you'd need a potato peeler, sharpened to a razor edge and there'd be a lot of screaming involved on the part of the person removing that particular item of clothing (I.e birthday suit)

Bet you look cute as buttons while your asleep though too walkie  *prepares a big 'awwwwwwww' for later and holds it ready* :)

The mental image of you all curled up, now nice and toasty warm under the covers with a smile on your face is a nice one itself. Gives me a case of the warm and fuzzlies ^_^ and a tendency to go 'Aaawwwwww', cook a walkie-suited brekky in bed, along with just maybe nibble an ear whilst its served if not a horrid thought :autism:

Tis true though about the warm vs cold. Better too cold than too hot. If too cold, you can always put on more clothing, at least until you run out of tops, socks, pants, kecks etc. and jackets, or are in as many leather trenchcoats as you can physically wriggle into whilst holding your breath, like an anorexic spelunking earthworm with a BDSM leather fetish (fuckin' sue me mother fucker, I'm autistic, I like tight things :tard: but on those days where the weather is hot enough to roast steaks on car bonnets to MY satisfaction in well-done, well you can only take off so much without either being arrested for pub(l)ic indecency, and/or using a kitchen knife to scrape your ribs etc. to the bare white bleached bones and walk around looking like something you might get if marilyn manson fucked johnny depp and a kid popped out, with Samhain for a birthday. (aside from the aforementioned screaming constantly due to having peeled oneself like an orange)
 
Its like smoking weed.....you can always put more in yourself, but you can never, ever take any whatsoever OUT, should one smoke too much. (well make it any other noncannabinoid drug IMO, since actually sugary food/drink seems to negate its effects with great rapidity, albeit being able with just a toke or two to launch right back up into whatever orbital distance one was previously at after consuming the sugar and coming down within moments.)

In this case, "fed up" is not fixed by a hug.  :zombiefuck:

Let's just say I'm sick to death of the SJW expectation that random corners of the internet are going to cater to safe space mentality.
People just like to think they can know who the monsters are, but they can't.

Can you get the flu vaccine there? I get it free here every year because I have asthma. And so I haven't had the flu for years, last time was H1N1 and that was really mild, thankfully.

I really hope you don't get the flu!

I don’t get the vaccine because I don’t have any conditions that would mean I needed to have it. :) I could get it if I wanted I’m sure, not for free though.

What do you know? I’m going to get it tomorrow privately cos I really don’t fancy the more “severe” version of flu. But it takes 10-14 days to be effective.  :GA:

And as for how I am feeling....well picked up my med script monday, or had it picked up for me. So not in severe pain for a change, feeling alright in my joints and feet.

Emotionally....feeling.....anticipation full to bursting with it. In a little kid late at night close to Xmas day morning, after spending about half a grand US on a LOT of new lab glassware, and I mean a bloody lot of new stuff.

And still close to a thousand pounds UK to spend, not quite, but not too far off, the US money meant due to exchange rates, that I'd spent a lot less of my savings than I expected. So I've enough for the perfect, VISIBLE piece of (and I screwed up earlier, said it was polonium. Meant to say Technetium. Its 99Tc, on a strip of gold, I think. There might be both. If there are then the vac pump and new power supply will have to wait, because I'll have to have both. Might pick up a chunk of thorium under argon while I'm at it too. But I MUST have that 99Tc on the gold strip backing. Its all so silvery and shiny and gorgeous....oh is it ever, its lovely...beautiful...and I have to have one for my element collection. That would be one of the real pride-and-joy points of the collection, something I'd build a special cell for in the collection, with decorative inlay cursive description, along with the standard atomic weight, proton number and where relevant, isotope.

But  yeah, I buggered up in saying polonium. I meant technetium. Fuck. Still, extremely rare for a piece like that on the open market. And to see that technetium metal there, so silvery and shiny and pretty, sitting there, proudly knowing it is the first ever man-made synthetic element (although technetium does occur in stars of some types), and not afraid to tell the elements next to it in the periodic table collection 'I got MADE, bitches!'....I can't help but be irresistably pulled towards that lovely technetium-plated slice of gold. Just like a moth to a UV light, or a bee to a flower full of nectar, even though the item is £400 for a single piece, its just so rare, so precious, so fucking well covet-able that I am absolutely prepared to pay that near half a grand UK for it. I might build a different, modified ampoule for it, one with a miniaturized geiger counter built in, that could be activated with a switch, or push-button, and connected to a little speaker built into it's display container box, so rather than merely look at it and drool, people could push the button and get to 'see' that intense radioactivity blasting off from its surface from the storm of clicking and crackling coming from the speaker connected to the Geiger counter mounted behind the technetium.
Beyond the pale. Way, way beyond the pale.

Polonium? Can you inform the officer of your whereabouts in 2006? :police:

Accidentally said polonium. That will take a little longer to get. The sample I'll be buying is not 210Po, its Technetium, as 99Tc. I will of course still need a good quality 210Po sample for my collection though. But for now, I'll at least be able to get me the 99Tc plated onto a slip of gold. I done goofed when I said 210Po. But that is the isotope I've chosen for polonium when I get that. For now, It'll be technetium, might do a bit of uranium and thorium shopping too while I'm at it. Happy enough with depleted uranium (238U), although the thorium will be intrinsically radioactive. Or perhaps natural uranium, to give it a buzz enough, so to speak, for an inbuilt geiger counter in a sample vial to register nicely when the counter circuit button would be pressed for that element. (I kinda like having something like a control pad to the side, with the radioactive elements on the keypad in periodic symbol and atomic weight, but arranged sort of like a phone keypad, press the one you want, then a big red button for 'on' to activate that specific geiger-counter), for the likes of radium, radon gas, technetium, polonium, all the actinides I can get together plus that lonely lanthanide, promethium.)

I could get 210Po easy enough in microscale amounts as anti-static brush tips, but I would want a proper sample, given its an alpha-emitter, then its easy enough to keep the radiation contained, glass is fine for the purpose. So again, I like the idea of trying to get a custom piece comissioned, plated onto gold, Au being ideal given the color difference. And I especially want the 210Po piece to be made nicely visible like that, since I love the idea of having a semimetal chalcogen nuclear materials sample piece in the collection, in its elemental state. Its just kinda cool. Its related to oxygen, sulfur, then selenium and tellurium, finally polonium. At least before unstorable superheavy elements with split-microsecond half lives etc. For elements like that, I still would like to try, building an accelerator and attempting to produce an atom or two and detect the decay, and for the table collection, have a photo-cap of the decay chain of the atom or atoms with their characteristic signatures and daughter isotope decay chains. It'd be pretty sweet if I could pull that off for the superheavies, even if I could manage only a few of them.

I don't know if even I could manage that with a self-built accelerator though. You have to admit though, it WOULD be totally cool to pull off building an atom like that, of the superheavy transactinides, even if its only some of them, and a couple of atoms, capturing the decay event and sticking the data of the decays in as the representative. Plus the target used, assuming it can be done safely. Still, I don't know if even I could do it. But it wouldn't stop me trying. That would be...well if I were in the scouts, kinda like a personal merit badge in particle physics :congrats:

And 2006? you must be kidding me, I've bugger all idea. In the lab, probably for most of it, in the bog taking either a dump, a piss or a dump and a piss for some of it, eating and drinking for some of it, taking meds for part of it. Online for some of it. Thats about it. Out and about at times. Mushroom picking in season, mushroom ID-ing and then eating for parts of it...Sleeping. Playing video games.

Buying, trading for and in chemical reagents.

And inform the officer of my..?

HeT! это может пойти в черный бог!

And how do you say 'extradition treaty can suck my fucking balls and die of cancer in hell' in swedish :P

I think Polonium was a Freudian slip. :zoinks:
