Also Hai Everyone ;3
One more furry server advertisement and im done
Hi Basil! How are you?
I'm doing pretty good
Today got paid a day earlier than expected and got some food for delivery a sec ago
How about yourself?
Getting paid early is pretty awesome
I'm good, managing I suppose
Well that's decent i suppose. this week been good to ya dash?
Hoi Junebug :3
No, not especially, but I am slowly setting up my room and bathroom since I'm living with my mom again
true NEET, living in his mom's basement lel
Currently stroking my 7 inch meaty cock desu
moving back in with relatives
I don't see it as a bad thing personally; some people get shit luck of the draw with living conditions and relatives are a good thing to fall back on to get ya on your feet again :D
It's going to be pretty nice having a full size bed for once
Now I need a cute boi or grill to use it with :p
Honestly I've had it really bad most of my life, but I'm in a much better situation now. I don't really know how long I'm going to be here, but I guess I'll see. I'd rather just move to the mountains alone tbh, but that's a ways off.
What have you done to France?
I've developed a really satisfying habit. I'm almost scared to tell it to people because I'm sure that once they get a taste of it they'll start doing it too.
Only within the past month did I realize that you can crack your knuckles by tugging on the base of your fingers. You can get some really loud cracks out of them doing that and it feels so satisfying. I really don't know how I went my entire life not knowing you could do this. Also, just in the past few days. I started doing my toes too. There's a little technique involves with them and you gotta use a little more force, but they crack just as loud as fingers do. My left middle finger and my two pinkie toes are my best crackers.
good evening fellas
That sounds like a great way to get arthritis!
I've looked into it extensively, there is no connection between cracking your knuckles and arthritis. There is even the story of a doctor who, for over 40 years, would only crack the joints in one hand and not the other and after all that time the health of his hands were identical.
a doctor cracked the knuckles on on hand daily and not the other, after a number of years there was no difference between the hands with regards to arthritis
however, the practice may lead to decreased grip strength, so you probably won't be opening many pickle jars in your twilight years
Love going to a chiropractor
getting your entire body poppin'
turn into jelly
Hi Luc, what's going on?
I've read that too, but stretching is what fixes joints. Cracking releases built up nitrogen in your joints which makes them harder to move, so it's pretty easy to imagine how never being able to move your fingers if you do it all the time could, you know, develop something that causes you to stop moving. But you do you my dude, it's not like I've had family members that have arthritis because they do that same thing.
Clearly. If you're doing one area over and over, that's going to cause problems. The doctor was in very good health and probably stretched a lot. It's a stupid story for publicity, and is blatantly wrong if you have any family with history of arthritis because stretching is what prevents it, and popping them keeps you from moving. It's literally cause and effect.
Kinda worried about my cat. Put new flea treatment on her and she is having a reaction. Gave her a bath for it. Seems to be doing better.
Also my power was out last night as well as most of the state due to high winds.
I mean, I'm a bass player and know these things lol. You don't crack your knuckles before you play instruments. That's what stretching and exercise is for.
my anecdotal evidence trumps rigor and observation
doing something over and over causes problems, so you should stretch regularly
keep up with those essential oils, hun
Sorry about your kitty, but hope she's doing alright. Those flea things are literally poisons, and every animal I've had with the liquid stuff licks it off and makes them sick.
Dang, that's pretty crazy to have nearly a whole state with power out.
Imagine being this stupid and blind lol
A good half of it was out.
And I know but she never had any reaction to them.
At least she didn't maul me when I gave her a bath.
I'll crack your guys' fingers and toesies too
For toes, it's best if you're wearing socks. You get a better grip on them.
Imagine being unable to rebut an argument and replying only in vulgarities and insults.
Have fun with your lack of mobility when you get old
Ah yes, clearly I have no observation as you say, despite mentioning I have family with history of arthritis, as well as them having joint issues, part of which is due to popping them. Go away shill, kek.
imagine two b/ro's arguing over popping shit
I'm here for the floof >w>
Fuck it, I'm being argumentative, I'm sorry.
You come here for a good time, not some shitflinging over popping joints, I'll just butt out.
Right? What kind of idiot argues with logical deduction and a lifetime of personal observation? lol
See ya, rat!
they've had those ads for years. that one's the least sexual i've seen.
I'm due to get arthritis since I've broken both of my hands so many damn times.
why do you think stretching/popping joints is a bad thing? do you not stretch and pop those joints in your legs before going out on a run?
There is nothing logical about your deductions.
Heck, I'm beginning to think you like arguing for the sake of arguing.
Big oof, I hope you don't.
What's going on dude? I haven't seen you in a while.
No because I'm already healthy and stretch, thus I haven't a need to pop them. That happens when a particular joint is stressed, which causes said buildup of nitrogen, and you'll notice that your complexion in those areas become very red as it isn't getting enough oxygen. Science and biology is cool, huh?!
I do. I love arguing with shills and morons, in hopes that they'll learn something new each day.
a small insight
To be fair Dash i knew a bassist with EDS and he popped his shit all day. at least before he'd start playing . kept saying his bones would hurt him too bad and popping helped relieve the pressure
It varies person to person but in my experience i both pop and stretch before anything strenuous
Been mostly saving money for a house, getting my shit together, working on my marriage and all that kinda stuff.
Unfortunately stopped working out about a month ago, so my confidence as taken a hit. How about yourself?
Well there you go, they're an outlier thus it affects them differently. I used to do it a lot in middle school, and they always hurt my fingers and made it harder to play when I got home, so I stretched instead. If they pop it's because other connective tissue is weak, and not getting the oxygen needed. Obviously with your fingers curled up all the time, there's a lot of buildup of nitrogen because there's insufficient blood flow. I'm pretty it's even stated among professional musicians to *not* pop them for that very reason, and I'm pretty sure my grandpa said the same his whole life since he did play bass, and gave me his '68 Fender. I remember him saying it pretty clearly, which is why I stopped.
reee avatar fag
I'm glad to hear you're doing better. I've been wondering about you, and hoping everything has been alright.
I moved back in with my mom, but her and my stepdad may be getting a divorce, so there's that.
Thanks brother, I find myself wondering what you're up to sometimes myself.
Well, from what you've told me about your mom, a divorce isn't very surprising, I hope the situation isn't too volatile over there.
WHAT OF IT?
I too love arguing with shills and morons in the hopes of educating them!
How's your Sisyphean task going? Mine's an uphill battle.
Can you distrubute more hard blush please?
Nothing, of course. I never do anything interesting, I just post bullshit on the internet.
I don't have any sorta, sorry.
Man, my brain is not working anymore today. Too much thinking and talking.
Dude, as the guy you're arguing with, I appreciate the thought and conversation!
I bet you do, user. Clearly you have nothing better to do either!
I've been pretty much doing the same. Although all I'm doing is burning through hours and hours of WW2 documentaries, or serial killer documentaries.
I've got no clue why.
It's this or Path of Exile and I'm not quite ready to plug in and tune out just yet.
Sounds like you're upset and depressed, so you're watching violence and death. A reasonable explanation, all things considered.
You should go play that game then. Obviously you're not interested in anything going on here. You can go kill people and do things in your dumb video game.
You're right, I just hate Tower Defense League.
Just wanna say that as a Bass Guitarist you have a lot more skin in the game than I do.
You keep rocking you.
Thanks! You should hear me sing, my voice is out of this world.
Belt that shit out for the world to hear, I hope you're screaming out of my radio one day.
Well I kinda do already. Just not singing. I get my voice out there through the internet because it's a lot easier than music these days, which my stupid generation doesn't listen to anything worthwhile, nor care to look at actual meanings. As long as I speak the truth, I'm doing my part.
Alas, perhaps one day I'll let others her my glorious voice, and cover Alice in Chains, Soundgarden, and the like
Legit thought I was the only person who did that
I've been practicing for years, and I still can't sing all too well.
I didn't really get good until I started watching lessons on YouTube a couple years ago. I'm in love with this beautiful woman because she really explains what the vocalists are doing, and how to replicate it, which most "react" videos are basically useless in terms of help.
I think I get that bass guitar is one of your voices but I hope you eventually get all your talents on air.
More guys in bikinis?
I play the guitar, we should all form a band that will never meet each other.
Eh, I'd prefer not to tbh. I loathe the entertainment industry. They're scum. That's what soundcloud and stuff is for.
Boi, I've already told you, my folder is totally unsorted.
Sure! We shall call ourselves The Fagnets
because we attract all the gay bois with our gay music
I play the cymbal and have a van! I'll never show up!
I play the 4-valved euphonium, can I join your band?
So who plays the skin flute?
I have, on occasion.
Oh god yes please!!!!
I haven't tried it yet, but I'll give it a lick eventually :p
Hello fellow cracker
Spanking is hot. I need a sassy lil boi to discipline.
God that was so hot!
fellow crack addicts! *hugs*
whaddup gay boi?
not much, same sad shit different day. had the equivalent of 2 poptarts, a cup of coffee and just water day and i dont feel hungry still...had the most vivid dream last night that just fucking destroyed me.
You should really eat something healthy. Having a proper diet, or lack thereof, can really affect how you feel. Not having any nutrition depresses the hell out of you, and makes you lethargic. Sometimes I have to force myself to eat or I'll sink into depression, and I'll be too tired to do anything.
thats where i been sitting for the pass week. been trying to force myself to eat but food taste like shit now...yesterday all i had was a swiss melt meal from arbys and one of those vending machine bag of chips.
Try eating more small meals or snacks throughout the day, rather than large meals. Snacks like granola bars are pretty good, but I highly advise getting organic things because anything without has all kinds of shit that upsets your stomach. Chips have zero nutritious value whatsoever, just empty calories and carbs.
yeah but i tend to need a decent chunk of it. i work a lumber yard in home depo and im very physical.
Try eating sandwiches. They aren't a whole lot and can be pretty simple, but are great, and chips go good with them. Gotta eat healthy my dude, I know you can be happy. Sound body, sound mind.
More sandwiches, rather. I know I sure need to. I'm a skinny boi, bleh.
yeah but its going to take a long ass time before i get to that. might just start going PBJ or some shit.
lost a lot of weight but still got a gut on me. think i prob going to be on this destructive path for a while and lose a lot more.
You stop that. Be grateful for ever having a bf because I sure haven't, and I'm a 22 year old virgin. Wallowing in your depression and eating poorly is only going to cause you binge eat again, and feel worse about yourself. Ask me how I know.
i dont want to delve deeper in it or i might just start sounding just like you. dont want to offend you but i would rant on about not needing to get better cause what does it even fucking matter.
Right there. Getting upset over something you can't change because it's in the past affects everyone else around you. Think about how I've felt about all this. Think about how lonely it makes me, and others who've never even had a partner, or had sex. Think about everyone else, those around you, here and personally. Nobody wants that, and that's why I stopped. Do you really to make everyone around you feel worse by refusing to let it go, or just accept it and move on? Last night I remembered that I had repressed memories of being molested as a child on multiple occasions, and that's why I've always hated men, yet here I am, doing everything I can to help others work past their own issues. That's why I'm here, and why I talk to people who feel bad; because if I can forgive and recover from every type of abuse imaginable, then why can't you recover from a little breakup? People like me are envious of anyone who's had a relationship at all.
cause i realized my life is a curse. i have had at least 6 relationships in my time. one of which lasting about 4 years and this one which was closing on 6. every single time it is always the same shit. i get to come in and i get to lift them up and i save them and after they are finally back on their feet and ready to go they fucking leave me. i have so much love to give but after its all said and done that love gets thrown to the side for something else. the first 5 i also got to watch the same thing happen on repeat. i would go out with them and everythiing would be fine. they they would break up with me, get with anothet guy, get pregnant, then get married. im just a conduit for everyone elses happiness. i burden myself with all of their problems and stick through the worst possible shit and after all of their doubts and fears are gone i become worthless and tossed to the side.
My mom and stepdad are having yet another talk. I wonder when they're going to start talking about divorce.
Life isn't a curse. Life is a journey. It's about learning; learning who you are, your place in the universe, and life itself. Relationships have two sides, not one. If you can't love yourself then how are you going to get anywhere? How are you going to find true love, and stay with that person? Because your attitude about this situation and yourself show exactly why this happened. You don't care enough about yourself, and eventually people lose interest, so grow the fuck up and start caring about yourself. Be happy with whatever it is that causes this stress deep down because I don't know, but I know damn well that people with these kind of problems have things they don't want to talk about.
you sounded exactly like my sister...i dont know how to honestly i have always been happy with who i have grown into. i was ready to grow. i was finally going to be moving out of my depressing ass house, leave all the bad behind and start a new journey in my life and have someone to share that with. anytime i feel like ive grown, been happy, been ready to plan out my future then it all just comes crashing down on me.
Well if two people are saying the exact same things then obviously there's truth. If you have to escape your depressing house then there's nobody to stop you right now, is there? There is absolutely nothing in your way except yourself because, whatever plagues you deep down, even if you don't understand the root of your problems, you have to get down to it, face your problems, look at ways to fix them, and do it. I'm young, but I have a lot of experience, and I'm literally sitting here listening to my mom grill my dad downstairs, crying, and talking about divorce as he ignores her because he's an addict. I have had to deal with so much bullshit, so much abuse and neglect, and I remembered last night that I was molested as a child on top of all that, and living in poverty. If I can live through that, face my problems in the darkest depths of my sanity, then you absolutely can too, and learn to love yourself, and live life happily. You have to learn to live happily by yourself, and not cling to people. If you want my personal take on this, right now I'm having to accept the fact that I have a real crush on CM, accept that I'm more gay than I want to admit, and move on because nothing is going to happen anyway, and I'm okay with that because sometimes being alone allows us to evaluate ourselves, and figure out how we can be the best person possible.
I need to go talk to my mom about all this. Bye.
starting to read up on it more here. its deff is something i will need to start doing. i been happy with my own toxicity. i need to get my insurance again so i can get to the hospital. the most scared thing i need to do is go in for this depression but im afraid of losing myself in the process. if i need this shit will i rly be me? and then needing to be deppendant on them....i just dont fucking know anymore...
and the other i was going to listen to anyway. my sister is my fucking anchor and without her right now there is no way i would even still be here. i do want to move out but i would want to be able to stand on my own 2 feet when doing so. had the similar shit in life with my family. my dad was an alcoholic and divorced my wife and i live in my past with all the depression with no one else doing anything in this house but me. and any time i have actually started cleaning all the fucking clutter from the pack rats the other rooms that were open get just as fucked. CM as in cuddle monster?
best of luck and hope to talk to you more soon.
i play transverse and skin like a champ
Let me become attractive for you, babe.
Then you have to accept everything for what it is, and move on. You have to work with what you have right now, and live in the moment. Learning to breathe, self evaluate, and literally look in the mirror at myself has helped me a lot. When I have nothing like furry porn to distract me, I can think about what my problems are. Seriously, look in the mirror at yourself, ask yourself, "Who am I? What am I doing here? What can I do to better myself? What can I do to better my environment, and help others around me?" These are the questions you have to ask yourself, and get to the root of it so you can grow as a person, and *then* you may find you can keep a more stable relationship. If you can't love yourself and be the best person you can then you won't be to keep the love from someone else, and they'll lose it. So meditate on these things, and don't deprive yourself of things like food, nor indulge in things like porn because holy shit, porn is so horrible for your mind, you have no idea.
You're just an anonymous person on the internet tho
And yes, Cuddle Monster. He's always been super flirty with me, and I appreciate how sweet he is, but I get attached to people easily. I want to help him to learn to speak honestly, how he really feels, and that makes it kinda hard for me to talk to him if there's not a whole lot of reciprocation. I do like him a lot, but I know he's on the other side of the ocean, so not a whole lot will come of trying to get all lovey dovey and cute, or sexy stuff. Having to stay strong, not let my loneliness and lust get the best of me, and try to help as much as I reasonably can, is a bit of a challenge at times, but I live to help others. And I'm in a pretty fucked up situation with all of my family, so it's pretty hard to stay sane when I have no real life right now.
porn is so horrible for your mind, you have no idea
and yet here we are XD
yeah food actually taste like food right now. its not the best food for me right now but i am eating and cracking jokes with friends right now.
and yeah i am starting to see it a lot more now. another thing that has been dragging me down but also using as a guise. i am actually pretty fucking proud of the fact that i earn 13$ an hour since i came from working at fucking mcdonalds and started at 7.25 an hour and almost make 2X of minimum wage. but now looking at it, its not anything to be able to live off, especially living off alone or with someone else with how bad my money spending is. (i love to go out and eat OFTEN. also love MTG and thats a huge money sink) so im prob going to take my sis advice and might be working at a hospital soon.
Good, I'm very glad you're starting to see it. Life is so fucking hard, and it's supposed to be. My mom has worked so hard for her, my stepdad, and all my siblings, and it took me 20 years to realize it because of how far she's come after being in poverty her whole life. Life usually doesn't start to become rewarding until you're 40-50+, and even then it's rarely going to be like the 'American dream' of riches and happiness. Everyone wants everything right now, and that's just not how shit works. That's why nobody should ever want to work for minimum wage because in the long run, you're going to look back and think "fuck, there are so many things I could have right now if I worked hard before instead of buying fast food, playing video games, and looking at furry porn all the time". It sounds harsh because it is, and that's what I've had to think about myself to really get down to it. And no, do not work in a hospital because that is quite literally one of the worst, most stressful jobs there are. You'd be better off doing shipping or something because being around people right now doesn't sound very good for you, and that's why I won't be working around customers when I start working for my mom. Just don't even bother taking a job that you won't benefit from mentally.
dont worry, my sis is a a travel nurse, she knows. i would actually be working off to the side cleaning and sterilizing needles to keep ppl from getting an infection.
the job at home depso isnt bad. most of the time i fucking hate my co-workers. its just another stem of shit i have to deal with. i bust my ass, i move the fucking pyramids, i work a whole 8 hour shift with only sitting down for a collective of 15 mins for the shift because i want everything fucking done and i will do it myself cause i dont care to ask for help, especially from those worthless ass people...it was the same at mcdonald. i loved 90% of my customers, i was able to put a smile on their face and make them happy, give them suggestions for what they might like. who would not listen to a fat guy about food right? hell i even told them that after they were skeptical about it but pushed them to it. "well no shit its good, im fat, i would know" XD
So you feel bad about being fat even though you work hard is what you're saying? It seems like you're insecure about your body and yourself, but work hard to not feel bad. I can understand that mindset, for sure. Stress and insecurity drive you to indulge, and food is your primary coping mechanism (alcohol is a second, it seems). A sentiment I've observed in countless people. My dad was an alcoholic, and pretty overweight most of his life until the past few years, and is working for Home Depot right now at almost 50. It's a vicious cycle that happens to way too many people, unfortunately. That's why you have to stay centered, and have self control in everything from food and drinks, to TV, internet and phones, to sex and anything that can be used for instant gratification.
Try starting a relationship with a person who can give back to you as well
the "actual" flute lmao
