I hate that discord won't let me send files to someone directly to get around its upload limit, like I've been able to do since AIM. I wonder what would happen if I archived the files in hundreds of little bits...

Just dropbox it?
Or Megaupload.
Or whatever the kids are using nowadays.

If anything I'd probably end up making a torrent for it instead so I don't have to sign up for anything. It just annoys me that there's an extra step now which I wouldn't have had to take with a bunch of older and otherwise worse programs.

I mean, there are plenty of file-dumping services that don't require you to make an account.

Had a bunch of snow dumped on us last week.

Was traveling down a dirt road that was basically ruts and snow. Barely enough room for two cars to pass each other. So what does this SUV, looked like an escalade, or some newer luxury brand, do? Tails me while I'm doing 30mph, then passes me with inches between my car and theirs. Flys down the unplowed road.

Well I'm glad to know that some self-important shit decided they were in a big ass hurry to go to their generic middle-management white collar job and that necessitated driving 60 on snow covered roads. But, but, they protested, "This car ad of the vehicle I bought shows it driving on top of the snow like it was fucking snow Jesus. That's why I got a luxury SUV."

Unfortunately dumbasses buy into the idea that some expensive car with traction control can just drive through a foot of snow like it's not there and will hopefully impale themselves on a tree at some point in the future.

I hate how everyone seems to have no idea where they are or what's going on when they're driving.

Yesterday I was driving to Mickey Dick's. The route I normally take is down a road between McD's and another restaurant, since the intersection has a stoplight. Another car in front of me got in the turn lane and started hesitating and dithering in front of the driveway to the other restaurant so I got in the lane ahead of them to make my left turn down Second St.

Then this idiot behind me, that until this point was giving every indication of wanting to go to the taco shop, turns down Second Street after me. For a split second I felt like an asshole for cutting them off -- then I realized this was rush hour in a very busy part of town and I can't be blocking traffic waiting for some idiot to finish Facetweeting long enough to decide what the fuck they're trying to do.

Make up your mind or I'm gonna make up your mind for you, mother fucker.

That important computer parts like RAM and graphics cards are now stupidly expensive for the time being.

Also how those M.2 SSDs despite being easy to put in almost always turn SATA ports off.

Another shitty driver post.
Sitting at a stop light in left turn lane, and every lane was full of cars. Suddenly to the left of me (IE in the lanes going the other way), somebody in a hurry swerved around the stopped traffic and flew through the intersection and the red light. And then flew through the next red light that was about 200 feet down the road. And it was not like it was accidentally going through a red light, since this person had to go AROUND stopped traffic like an ambulance might in order to run the red lights. This person deliberately ran two red lights, and then drove towards a nearby university. Idiot college student I guess. Amazing how bad drivers are becoming nowadays.

 

Also, fun times with both my doctor's office and pharmacy. The Tuesday before MLK day I noticed I was low on meds. I called up a refill on them. I was told one of them had expired and they had to get a new prescription from the doctors, and they said they'd send a refill request to the office. I checked in every other day at least only for them to tell me they were waiting to hear back from the doctor's office. The pharmacy was staffed by a bunch of young people who looked fresh out of school and didn't seem to give a fuck to following through to see if my doctor received the request, they probably just clicked a button on their screens and then didn't give a fuck about it after. Typical Gen Y and Gen Z.

Had to wait until after MLK day for my doctor's office to open, and I was out of that medication at that point. I called them Tuesday and found out they never received the renewal request. Of course. So they asked me which medication I needed renewed and then sent the WRONG medication, something that was $1000/month and not covered by insurance, so I had to get them to send the right medication. I finally picked up my damn medication last Thursday, a week and a half after I put in the request. It does seem like both the pharmacy and doctor's office are run by incompetent idiots.

Don't call me your boyfriend after we just met.

Don't think I can't tell that you're trying to use me (for sex or that $175 textbook you're not willing to buy)

waking up sick for the third time in 2 months:

-having to call in, also for the third time in 2 months

-having to cancel important things i had planned

-being afraid to take my damn medicine while sick

-fevers

-feeling like i'm drowning because there's so much nasty shit in my throat

-only having an ancient box of cherry sucrets because i used up all the good cough drops on my previous cold i just got over

-getting less than 5 hours of sleep

-getting nauseous if i get warm or move around too much

-not knowing how long it will last this time and praying it goes away enough that i can get back to work in 3 days because i can't afford to keep calling in

The thing that the doctor puts on your arm that just keeps getting tighter and tighter untill it feels like its going to squeeze your arm to death.

Sphygmomanometer.

 

 

Also I hate how even though I restrict myself a SHITLOAD when mapping to try and appeal to the third world shitters trying to play Half-Life on a $3 pocket calculator, they STILL complain.

 

Nerd shit time:

Half-Life has an ingame metric called from the console, named after its CVAR, R_SPEEDS [0/1]. R_speeds is a measure of how many polygons are being drawn by the engine in each particular frame, and is generally used to help optimize maps -- mostly by picking a target r_speeds "wpoly" (world polygon) value and trying to stay below it. Most of the maps that came with the game when it came out in 1998 have wpoly between 300-500, with peaks around 800 in huge arenas like Surface Tension. During the game's heyday in the early 2000s, the general target was below 1000 wpoly.

In [CURRENT YEAR] I still try my damnedest to stay below 1300 wpoly; meanwhile everyone else goes as high as 5000 for a single room.

 

and these third world fuckers are STILL bitching.

It ain't my fault your computer can't handle a game that's old enough to fucking buy itself a beer.

Hit a group of potholes on the highway deep enough that I heard a loud bang from them, and destroyed my suspension.

After I went through them, I passed a dozen or more disabled cars on the side of the road, but mine kept going and the tires didn't seem to be flat. It wasn't until later that I discovered that my struts were leaking and my wheel bearing was fucked up worse than I've ever seen wheel bearings damaged before.

A local repair shop wanted $1050.... $600 for the struts and $450 for the bearing. I took the estimate and thanked them, I've never seen a bearing cost more than $300, and the struts could be had for a few hundred. I already ordered new struts for $250. Wheel bearing kit for $55. Now to get the tools to fix them all myself. I'm still going to demand the state reimburse me and fight it until I win or I've exhausted all options, but the state will probably refuse me.

For some reason Michigan's roads are absolute shit this year, the worst I've ever seen them any year. To the point that the news has been talking about it and memes have been created over it.

http://www.951ksky.com/2018/02/26/michigan-news-crew-films-19-cars-falling-victim-to-a-giant-pothole-video/

One of the things that pisses me the fuck off is that our Republican-run state government, with our Republican governor, gave everyone a tax break that will be about $25 per person.... but will cost the state $180 mil a year in tax revenue. Money that could be used to FIX THE FUCKING ROADS. $25 more per year in taxes is not going to fucking pay for the $300-500 of suspension damage that has happened to my car, but $180 mil could go far to fixing at least some of the worst roads. But Republicans love lowering taxes but not cutting spending cuz it gets them re-elected, and not using government funds for important things like infrastructure.

Here's an actual video I recorded of a really bad stretch of road near a friend's house (this was not the road where my car was damaged).

Coming out. There's just no easy way to do it, and both times when I came out separately to each of my parents in the past week, I just wanted to throw myself into a hole afterwards. They're not exactly okay with it, but they still support me and are not getting in my way at all, so I'm lucky for that. I just wish being gay weren't something that had to be given any special attention, and as tempting as it is to act that way, it just isn't practical in a lot of situations.

Does it get any easier?

Guess exactly what I'm doing right now... Yeah, I do this once every 6 months or around about that. The start of this and FAF 1.0 took up way too much of my teenage years.

What up guys, I've been MIA with life stuff and school, hope you all are doing good.

 

I came here to vent today,

I got off the phone with my mom last night, my family lives in Texas. I, fortunately, do not (and certainly after hearing about these bastions of humanity I never will!). They told me stories about their neighbors and how they are. They try to put them in a good light at times, like how they invited my family over for giant meals and events at the beginning.

However, My mom told me that one of the fuckers THREW GASOLINE ON MY DOG! She didn't catch the guy in the act, but she saw my dog scratching and rolling around and licking himself, and the neighbor from far off walking into his house (which is why she suspected it was him). She had to douse my dog with the hose and give him a bath, this was a long ordeal and it didn't seem to be enough. Fortunately, he was okay.

 

But that shit makes my blood boil, it's a damn good thing I'm not there because honestly the emotional rage that gives me makes me want to spraypaint their house or shitty truck, do it like in "The girl with the dragon tattoo" and make it say:

ME OR MY GROSS FRIENDS ARE DOG ABUSING PIGS

Seriously, it almost makes me want to hire a hitman for vandalism, it's a shame that can't be tattooed on their foreheads. The police got called over to their place since my mom did see some guy walking away during the incident, but of course they can't be charged because there's no specific proof it was them, and they of course denied it. Still, hopefully getting a cop knocking on their door is enough at that point so they don't continue with anything like that.

I'm a pretty chill dude by nature, I avoid confrontation, but any particular incident concerning abuse animals or kids is going to make me rage. 

 

Apparently these other neighbors, dont know if they're all the same or different neighbors: also casually make jokes about lynching, abused their now-departed wife (My mom found a book from his passed wife that was about dealing with an abusive husband), and probably were the ones that ate my sister's pet rabbit (to be fair, there's no proof of this one and my parent's stupidly did let the poor damn monster live outside and under the house).

 

Yikes, whatever! I'm so glad I don't live there, this is why I'm wary of new people I don't know. I've not had a solid relationship with my parents but they've had it rough these many years, between the constant moving, my shit going on in my life, neighbors they thought they could trust but ended up stealing their cash savings out of their home, and my sister being bullied in school. I feel for them

When I partake interest in a topic that people are discussing during a conversation but feels like no one else engages with me and continues to actively talk to other people about it almost ignoring me or not acknowledging that I'm in the conversation with them, but when I try to make my voice heard and finally get someone's attention before they continue "their" conversation it's brief and the tone toward me is less enthusiastic. It makes me feel unwanted, like I annoyed them or pissed on their parade just for trying to converse. If I change the topic to try to get conversation going between me and others I look like the retard who's derailing the current topic.

Not gonna bother making a rant for this. 

I hate that I have become Mae Borowski from Night in the Woods. I dropped out of university and currently I'm visiting my parents. In the town I was born in we went to a mall that used to be pretty well visited last time we went there, now most stores are empty, there er very few people shopping and it's gonna be closed for good soon.

That game hit pretty close to home way too much anyway. But that was pretty awful.

If you don't hear from me again I was killed by a murder cult that worships a Lovecraftian demon goat.

These are the only two sections that exist for this class next semester. It's not even like the more reasonable times filled up -- there just... aren't any. Also have another class that's only offered nights MWF. College is gonna be a blast.

Text that is so tiny in games that even if I lean forward and squint, I still wouldnt be able to really make out what it says. This isnt limited to text either. In stardew valley, I had to get up and move right next to the tv in order to see what eye color I was choosing,

I hate this in games and when people take and post screenshots of messages and things. There's not a lot of point in having something for people to read if they can't actually read it.
