    My dad did this for this 40th birthday. It was one of the most amazing things I've ever seen. I remember when we finally went to dinner on that day, they band wandered off for a bit. We were kind of pissed off, because we had paid them for the full day and they just ditched. Our group eventually found them playing for this couple, both in their late 80's/early 90's. They were having dinner for their anniversary, and had been married 63 years. One of the most touching things I've seen in a while, and made us all feel like an ass for getting mad. We paid them double.

    Funny story... it was 1982 and I was 5 years old... I learned to read and being the geek that I am, gravitated towards our Commodore 64. No one in the house could figure out how to use it until the 5 year old fires it up. The main problem was that no one could figure out how to use the printer... it just sat there and made noises, but never printed. I open the case and yank out the styrofoam that's holding the dot matrix head in place, and voila.

    27 years later and I'm still trying to relive that glory... but I haven't been able to find a dot matrix printer in years. *sigh*

    Oh no, we've been deployed for a week. I've been in for 3 years. I got E-2 out of boot camp. I joined straight out of High School. I scored a 65(?) on my ASVAB, I think for my rate you actually have to have a higher score but they made an exception. I signed up for 6 years. The bullshit stuff is mainly doing things that make absolutely no sense. Such as painting outside on wet rails, walls, etc. Having higher-ups tell you to be very early to meetings when they show up 15 minutes late. Just lots of shit. The gas chamber thing was cake. You walk into a room with your division with gas masks on. They fill the room up. Then one at a time you take off your mask and walk out, exposed to the air for like 5 seconds then go and sit down for 15 minutes. My eyes just watered up and I was spitting just a bit.

    It's *way* worse when you get to a ship and have to do Ship's Self Defense Force training, they mace you right in the eyes and you go through an obstacle course. That was turrrrribull.

    yes, i've read that before, about what you were saying, but no, my father was great, and My brother, her and I were all close in age, nothing funny went on in our home. I've tried to think of something that could make her stay, some kind of trauma, but I come up empty.

    She loved her husband, and I mean, she loved him more and was happier than anyone I ever met when they were married.

    The closest she came to leaving him was the FIRST time he ever smacked her, believe it or not. I think when she went back to him after temporarily separating is when she started accepting, and then defending the abuse. And supposedly, the abuse started out verbally a couple years into their marriage, and didn't turn physical for quite sometime after that.

    My opinion was that she was infatuated with who she made her husband out to be in her mind, not what he actually was.

    My claim is simple stats (assuming even media coverage), on what basis did you discover that priests tend to get more publicity? I've never read anywhere that priests get more coverage.

    Further, there aren't that many RC priests in the United States, it would have to be a massive deviation from regular publicity for what you say to be true.

    Which is more likely:

    (1) the media are covering only the priests who are pedophiles in a grossly disproportionate manner, or

    (2) a significantly large percentage of priests entered the church hoping to indulge/conceal/hide/tame their pedophilia?

    They don't you stupid jackass.

    YOU made the decision to possibly forfeit your future income when you banged some (in your case very unfortunate and probably misguided) girl.

    Or are you really so stupid that you don't understand how human reproduction works?

    Look I know your mommy probably cleaned your bottom every time you went boom boom and sissy, but women are not magically somehow responsible for cleaning up the mess when bad things happen in YOUR life as a result of YOUR decisions, just because they "could fix it".

    At least, they are not any MORE responsible than you are, you both made the mess...now you both clean it up in whatever way you both work out; be it abortion, adoption, marriage, or whatever.

    Also I love how there's no mention of the fact that she is giving up her income too.

    I swear, how do you even dress yourself in the morning? Its obvious your brain isn't functioning properly.

    How exactly might this happen? And why hasn't it happened before, if landing on the moon puts our species only "thousands" of years away from mastering the universe?

    If we can build smarter, self-replicating machines, that would definitely extend our reach. It's unclear how many new ways we can exploit the laws of physics (e.g. we have nuclear reactions and integrated circuits, but is a warp drive possible?). Plus "chaos theory" a la Jurassic Park says everything will go to hell.

    >Please do not speak if you have no idea what the fuck you're talking about.

    Please follow your own advice.

    1) You're not Taiwanese.

    2) I am Taiwanese, that specializes in Taiwanese history and modern day politics.

    Although a lot of our culture derives from China prior to the 1900's, a ton of it also derives from Japan thanks to their administration of Taiwan for half a century and their presence on the island for over a thousand years. A lot also comes from America for many reasons but basically because American Pop culture just is. **As a result, modern day Taiwanese culture is a mix-mash fusion of popular elements from Japan, China, the United States, and elsewhere.**

    Also saying Taiwanese is a subset of Chinese is like saying American is a subset of the British. We may have ancestors from China half a millenia ago (whom they in turn came from India according to National Geographics genetics project), but even the Chinese didn't consider us Chinese until the late 1800's as a last ditch effort to thwart the Japanese. Don't be retarded, internet tough guy.

    I'm 26 but I was in your shoes. I was horribly shy in high school and sort of gradually came into my own during my early 20's, I got more self-confident and started to become more interested in other people, and found that other people were more interested in me. "socially well-adjusted", is how you would describe it.

    The first girl I dated, really, was while I was living in a new city for an internship. I met her at a party, and I guess because I was in a new place I was less afraid to put myself out there. She was never my girlfriend, it wasn't that serious, but it was still a good experience for me.

    The next year when I was 23 I met a girl at school and we totally fell for each other. She was my age and in a similar situation, dated a few people but never had a boyfriend, despite being a really great person. We were a good match; both really insecure about our own inexperience but calmed by the fact that we were sort of going through it together. We broke up after 6 months because our future plans just didn't work out (I was graduating and moving away, she wasn't) and I was pretty heartbroken, but again a good experience overall.

    I'm now in a happy relationship and live with my partner. It was mostly luck and self-confidence that made the relationship start, but succeeding, by which I mean building a strong, loving bond, was hard work. I found I had residual issues to get over - selfishness and ego and insecurity, some of which was related to being single for so long and some of which is just my own shit. However, I've gradually come to understand that everyone has their own shit to deal with, and "succeeding with women" just means you sort of pass the basic test enough to be worth a try, wherein you date for a while to see if you like each other enough to deal with each other's shit.

    You'll have your shit to deal with but this is a lifetime pursuit for everyone, and 'inexperience' might be a deal-breaker for someone looking for a life mate, but probably not for people who are casually dating. In other words, there are lots of people out there who are willing to give you a try -- or they would, if you were making yourself available and presentable, and perhaps taking the initiative. Start looking for these people.

    There *is* one way to convince me of something and it's called *evidence*.

    You remember evidence don't you? Data from around the world. Facts. Results from the huge social experiments that have been going on around the world for decades on end.

    A topic closes when the truth of the matter has been ascertained. Sometimes that takes time but eventually truth and reality prevail.

    You, for example, clearly disagree with Universal Healthcare. Yet you must be aware that the majority of Americans disagree with you and the rest of the modern world has successful working Universal Healthcare systems. This is what we call *evidence* and it is based on *facts*. In the face of such overwhelming evidence it is futile to engage on point by point debate with someone who is Anti-Universal Healthcare because they only want the debate so they can pretend there is some controversy.

    This is no controversy. You lost. It's over. Done.

    I've created a debian linux minimal install with X and firefox (iceweasel) solely for accessing paypal, US bank and a finance company's website.

    I thought of putting it on a read only usb.. but it was a hassle to reboot.

    now I've got that image running under virtualbox (as read only). so when I need to access the bank, I just fireup the VM.

    I should be safe, except for keyloggers. any other threats I might be missing ?

    Oh BTW.. most of the local (dubai) banks don't allow transfers via the internet. all you can do is check the balance.. so I guess they are safe from this trojan :/

    The definition of "child pornography" has been stretched so far and thin that we really don't have any idea what kind of stuff he had on his computer.

    In America today truly evil and depraved pictures of grown men raping tiny babies are rightly called "child pornography".

    At the same time pictures of teen-aged girls on a nude beach are also now called "child pornography".

    Remember the case of the 15 year old girl who was charged with "distributing child pornography" for taking nude pics of herself and sending them to classmates? Or the case of the mother charged with "producing child pornography" for taking pictures of her baby nursing?

    The endless stretching and broadening of laws is one way that power groups maintain control. We used to know what "resisting arrest" meant. We used to know what "child pornography" meant. But now it means pretty much anything the authorities want it to mean.

    Actually, my first memory is of a bat as well.

    A bat got into my family's cabin and I have vivid memories of looking out into the hallway and seeing the shadow of the bat flying around and my parents, grandparents, and other family members are running around chasing it while my cousins and I are cowering in the kids room.

    Then there's a loud bang, the noise stops, and silence.

    My grandpa had run into his room, got out his .22 that was his since World War II, and shot the fucking bat dead.

    My grandpa was awesome.

    I didn't have my first serious girlfriend until I was 23, and lost my virginity at the same time (same girl).

    I was very shy and introverted, until I started working in retail. Six years later, I am loud, playful and fun to be around (so i'm told), nowhere NEAR the same person I once was, and I am now the person i've always wanted to be.

    As crappy as most retail jobs are, they FORCE you to interact with customers. It's a great way to flirt with girls your own age, as well as sass with the older ladies.

    Hang in there. I promise you'll find someone as nerdy and geeky as you, and you'll hit it off. You'll just know when it happens, it feels right.

    As a former 16 year old girl, I have to say don't worry that much. Just somehow tell her that she needs to stop posting pics with her face online, then let it go. There are millions of girls on teh interwebz. Many 16 year olds will do this. It's a messed up way of doing it, but it's kind of a way of getting comfortable with your body. But seriously, tell her discretly that you aw her, and her face is dangerous to show. That and go ask Dan Savage. He gives excellent advice.

    Ps- Many teenaged people get diagnosed with mental disorders. A pretty fair way of dealing with the fucked up world they are realizing they are inheriting. She will probably grow up to be just fine. Get her some good books, and let her know that she is not crazy. Internet attention seeking is sooo middle school though. Despite what you see on facebook... But regardless, I don't see her diagnoses-es as having much to do with this. Other than it's a fucked up world right now of course.

    I'm not saying it's a killer argument, I'm saying it shouldn't be an argument at all.

    There was a massive failure in moral leadership in the united states, for years during a time of perceived crisis, during which the psychotic elements were left off leash (deliberately or through inaction).

    In a room of desperate people trying to get something from somebody, there will always be a guy at the back who promises to get what you want if you don't ask questions. A second person in the room always says "Yes. It's time." It's up to the leader in that room (or dire consequences from those outside the room) to step in and say "No."

    It wasn't that suddenly the creepy guy was more persuasive, it's that the leader in the room gave the go-ahead because it was easier to feel like they were doing something, or there was a specific order to let the creepy guy go ahead.

    Okay, that made way less sense than I intended, but I sum up/repeat: it was a failure of leadership, not argument, that resulted in torture.

    And you'll need a HUGE, insanely strong desk to hold that. It's a tradeoff. Plus, anytime you move you're going to be hauling around hundreds of lbs of monitors.

    Versus my dual 24" dell ultrasharps. Lightweight, energy efficient, and very conscious of desktop real estate. Price is a bit more though but I don't mind the tradeoff.

    edit: I'm not being a troll here -- I'm sure they're EXCELLENT monitors, and even more so at the price point you're getting them at. But ~100lbs each? Dear goodness, you need a strong desk for each of them. I can't wrap my head around that...that's....wow. Ouch.

    I think fractal data compression is going to be one of the first big public-facing areas for practical genetic algorithms. The focus up until now has been on behind the scenes engineering - antenna and turbine blade shapes for example.

    Not only will this be absolutely incredible for data compression, its going to be a great demonstration of evolution and the fractal nature of DNA in action, which is something we really need right now to educate those who use misguided arguments about 'shaking broken watches in a box' etc.,

    The only reason this should ever be required reading is because it was so painfully fucking boring that we should make everyone else read it so they can suffer the way we did. This book was the single most uninteresting piece of dribble I have ever had the displeasure of reading. I don't care how detailed it was, or how vivid the descriptions were, I don't want to be forced to spend 3 hours reading about people driving through a desert. I'm sure it was just as boring as the book painstakingly described it. Though I do have to give it credit for the diabolically evil ending. It was pure evil genius that after all that epicly drawn out story there actually was no ending, but only a strange stop to the story leaving you completely unsatisfied.

    If anyone would be so kind as to explain why this book could ever be considered a worthwhile read, I would appreciate it, because I still can't wrap my head around why any publisher wouldn't read it and say "Well I don't care how good you are, this book is boring as shit and I regret that my job require me to read such a torturous collection of words."

    **Reminds me of a famous quote:**

    "Next to every hot chick is a guy completely bored with what he would once kill for" - anon internet douche

    So, what shall this quote teach thee?

    Well, our good friend Corbin is surely in love with this broad, and this broad is surely in love with our good friend Corbin. As you've stated, this promotes a singular problem for you. This is what is known as a "shitty situation"; you're pretty much screwed no matter which way you go on this.

    In the end, I think you know shes happy with Corbin, and until there is a point in time where she is not, let sleeping dogs lay (or something like that?). There is no doubt if you say something it will only make things more awkward, and create an uneasy feeling between the two of you (will surely mess up anything that could happen in the future).

    And to be honest, my experience in life and relationships has taught me you can experience love with more than one person. Love is simply a close relationship with someone whom you "connect" with. I can safely say I've loved more than one women in my life. You'll find someone new who has a whole different set of goals, talents and knowledge that will intrigue you. She (or he? - hey.. you did say you would fuck Corbin) will teach you and show you new things. The only thing holding you back from this is how you compare this new person to this current chick. Let go...

    Unfortunately life has a way of dealing some shitty cards some times. In the grand scheme of things, this is a pretty mild "shit card" and I'd spend the time moving on to some one else. It seems you may already know, but there are millions of fish in the sea. Grab your drag net and start fucking fishing.

    FWIW, I think you're entitled to dislike anything you want. You can't *choose* what you like and dislike, it just happens. The music chooses *you*. You don't like Dylan or the Beatles, I don't like Elvis. Other people may say they're brilliant, well, they're probably right, but so what? I *still* don't like Elvis.

    But what I like and dislike is very much determined by my environment. Had I been born in the 40s I might *love* Elvis. I can't bring myself to say that he sucks, because I know he was electrifying, because he was original and one-of-a-kind, and because, well, as far as *that* type of music goes, I know Elvis was great at it. It's just that I don't *like* that type of music - I don't listen to it, and it doesn't move me. So as far as I'm concerned, it's not that he *sucks*, it's just that he doesn't connect with me. You know, like a girl being attractive, but just not "my type" : I can't really call her ugly, it's just that she's not my thing. I can still recognise her beauty, though: the issue isn't necessarily with her, but the way she and I connect.

    edit: BTW, I'd ignore anyone telling you you *must* like something, it just doesn't work that way.

    Towards the end of high school, one of my best friends committed suicide.

    At his funeral, his girlfriend who he had been with for several years stood up and bravely read out his suicide note. As she started, the grave diggers one row over fired up a large digging machine and started working. We couldn't hear a thing.

    I don't know how they could see a funeral in progress and start such noisy work so close by. It stopped when a number of very angry, very large relatives of my friend had a discussion with the workers, who finally decided to wait until it was over.

    Still, it was too late. I never heard what she read out, at the time I didn't want to ask for a copy of the note, and we fell out of touch. I still have no idea what his suicide note said, and I don't know if I have it in me to track her down and ask her seventeen years later.

    Compulsory insurance is a great idea, but without reforming the insurance industry, it will only put people further into debt. If you are lucky enough to even be approved for insurance, you are fine for a little while. Then you get sick. Great, you have insurance, so you're covered. But then your premiums go up. Then the insurance company sends you a letter saying they are retroactively denying your claim from your previous illness due to a preexisting condition. Mind you, that preexisting condition can be anything from teenage acne to asthma to the flu. So now you have a big medical bill that you thought had been covered by your insurance company, you have higher premiums because the insurance company deems you an expensive patient (i.e., someone who got sick), and if you lose your coverage for any reason (laid off, graduation from school, no longer covered by parent's plan, etc.), good luck getting insurance again.

    That's what I meant by "it sucks." I'm all for compulsory insurance, but they really need to put a leash on the insurance companies before doing that.

    You know, a part of me agrees with you. A big part. But I can never be sure anymore. I've heard some really great things about Roaccutane, and I think that if my acne comes back after all this, and my skin gets bad (and I mean *really* bad), I may try it. But that doesn't mean it doesn't scare me. And reading accounts like yours makes me nervous even thinking about it. I don't agree with people actually downvoting you just because you were someone who experienced negative effects. Every account should be seen as equal. If it means anything to you, I really appreciate you sharing your experience.
