Like someone dragging a stick over stone, the scratch is a sound that seems to follow anyone hoping to remain hidden. Always seeming to draw ever closer, it shames you with constantly wishing to look back to see what it is. Yet any time your will breaks, there is nothing there. Panic rises as the sound seems to grow right on top of you, and it grows ever harder to remain still, as you pray beyond hope that whatever is hunting you has not already spotted you. As your body drains itself of sweat, you are certain the smell will draw it right to you, and when at last you can stand it no more, you awake in the dark, drenched, struggling to extract yourself from your own set of blankets and sheets.

One rainy, windy night, not unlike tonight, a man was walking home alone, down a dark, deserted street that ran right by the local cemetary.
As he passed the gates, he heard a bump in the darkness behind him. Not daring to look back, he quickened his pace. But, the bumping noise continued behind him.
He stopped and turned to see what it was. Coming down the road behind him was a coffin, standing on end, bumping from side to side - BUMP, BUMP, BUMP.
The man, terrified for his life, turned and ran into the driving rain. Behind him, the coffin came faster - BUMP, BUMP, BUMP! Ahead of him, there was a branch that had fallen from a tree. He reached down and grabbed it as he ran by. Still running, he turned and threw it over his shoulder at the coffin - but it just splintered when it hit the coffin and the coffin continued coming faster - BUMPITY, BUMPITY, BUMPITY!
The man turned the corner onto his street and ran through his front gate, the coffin right behind him. His splitting axe was resting against his woodpile so he snagged it, turned, and gave a mighty two-handed throw sending it end over end right at the coffin. SMASH! - the axe shattered on the unnaturally strong wood of the coffin and it continued after him.
The man dashed in his house, but the coffin crashed through the front door. The man ran upstairs and grabbed his shotgun off the wall display. He blasted the coffin with both barrels, but the shot bounced harmlessly off the coffin as it continued up the stairs - BUMP, CLOMP, BUMP, CLOMP!
The man, desperate and scared to death, jumped into the bathroom and locked the door - knowing it would do no good. The coffin Banged against the door, once ..., twice ..., and on the third time, the door exploded and the coffin came forward.
In desperation the man reached out his hand and grabbed whatever he could. All that was there was a bottle of cough syrup so he threw it at the coffin.
The bottle shattered, the cough syrup poured on the coffin, and the coffin stopped.

I was going to make a science thread again, but browsing through the site something else comes to mind: What, if any, are the theories behind web site administration?  I am slowly growing the technical capacity to make websites, but if I create anything that users can alter, by default, I take on the responsibility of an admin (or person appointing admins).  My mind can be systematic and rigid, and under any degree of stress, it is only systematic and rigid.  If I operate on the right system, I'm balanced and fair.  On the wrong system, I can be pretty problematic, which is why I have to be careful about the systems I use and how I understand things.

I'm not sure how to ask it, exactly, but what are the guiding principles for web site admin social authorities?  I looked for books, but they are on the technical side, and I can learn that pretty well.  I know a big guide will be the mission of the site.  (Then, I suppose, experience.)  But there seems to be a lot of tricky problems: free speech vs. not tolerating some kinds of intolerance or abuse.  Judging who is a troll.  I know drama is attractive -- that's why it's a genre of films and books -- but there's a level where it becomes bad.

Probably no one will be able to give me any complete answers, and that's fine, but maybe I'll get some ideas if you just share your thoughts or references you're aware of.

Be aware of the OWASP top ten.  Have a systematic way of avoiding injection vulnerabilities.  Have a separate 'staging'/'test' version and a live production version.  If the site is sensitive in any way, the 'staging'/'test' version should not be public, to prevent a bug from compromising the production site.

I talked to Starshine and apparently my IP is one of those that rotates so a permaban is literally impossible.

So I took that as a sign from the universe that trying to "escape" from here is impossible and I should try to actually like idk work things out.

I guess this is going to seem like one of those "oh she was just messing around again" moments but I assure you I had every intention of leaving for good.

But anyways contrary to popular belief I'm not really struggling with anything in particular with my life outside of the normal trans and depression related stuff.

See coming back here is actually pretty difficult for me because of the stuff that was revealed by certain individuals in a thread that no longer exists in regards to how they truly felt about me but I think its important that those things are addressed.

I legitimately want to work things out with people if theyre willing to do it.

But there is one thing I want to adress above all else that has really shot me directly to my core.

Dizzy or one of their alternates accused me, slanderously and libellously, of being a so-called "fairweather friend".

>Sometimes an unhealthy place is the best place to be in to improve yourself

No, for fuck's sake. This is a woefully unhealthy mentality. I know you have friends here, but this place is very obviously not good for you. You've Sunk Cost yourself.

Don't stay in places that are not healthy for you.

Well, okay. But still, you have to admit that was rude and was what made me see you as being a jerk to me that led me to calling you out for it here. But if you were just being rude because you knew I wouldn't listen if you tried not to be then I can at least appreciate that because I know it was true. But you really should have just not said anything.

Depends on the place. Some unhealthy places are important to get out of immediately. But some places will make you a better person. If everyone just immediately left and place that started to feel bad for them, we wouldn't have anybody who can handle things the world sends at them.

I haven't "sunk cost" myself. I stick around not because I feel like I need a return on investment for the time I've put into it, but because I truly believe this place has something for me.

But, again, whatever. It's not the point to argue about this.

You were honest, and you're trying to help. And I can appreciate that you care enough about me to want me to leave because you feel like this place is unhealthy.

But rather, I'm going to prove you wrong in that regard. That this place is not unhealthy for me, that just because bad things may have happened, that it may have led me to explode and throw a tantrum, that it's not unhealthy.

I plan on improving and giving this place a chance with the new me. But if in the end you're right and I start feeling pent up anger and frustration over this place, then I will accept that this place is unhealthy and I will simply go without any fanfare.

I just hope you can see this happen and that I can change your opinion of me. I still highly respect you and value you as a person. I'd rather do my best to change how I seem to you rather than leave for good and just let you keep thinking of me as you do now.

Ah, good, the thread is still here

Listen, maybe Chroma was a little harsh on you, before

We would've much preferred a straight apology for what you did to my sister, and I was attempting to find your Discord to discuss it privately, but either way it seems like you're at least trying to control your temper better

That's a good thing

You could be doing it better, but no one is perfect, and trying to be supportive is probably better of me to do

Hi I'm naming thread titles like click bait videos now.

Anyways, I just wanted to ask a kinda simple question.

Does seeing spoiler text make you more likely to read the text beneath it?

For me, every time I see it, I stop and read it, no matter what the thread it's in is about.

I will regularly scroll through a thread to reply to the topic and skip through the majority of the content in the thread, but when I see a post with spoilered text, I'm drawn to reading it.

Does anyone else do this sort of thing? Do you think using the spoiler text option draws more attention to posts that have it rather than those that do?

Yes, it does.

Spoilered text is highlighted black, which is at least a high contrast from the default site theme.  It's eye-catching and sparks peoples' curiosity.

[hide] is probably a lot better since it's not nearly as eye catching.

This is a private contract, as I understand it. The vehicle belongs to and is designed by SpaceX, for use in NASA and other contracts. It's part of a joint contract for SpaceX and Boing to develop distinct LEO manned capsules for transportation and resupply to the ISS while NASA focuses on developing the Orion Capsule in an international effort partnered with Lockheed Martin. That one is more of such a partnership, but Dragon and Dragon 2 are SpaceX property.

NASA oversees all launches out of KSP so I'm sure it's a safety requirement. Also the vehicle needs to be compatible with the ISS and NASA is the primary customer so that's probably the idea of the close development relationship. It would be interesting to understand the exact nature of their partnership. What I understand from engineers is that the SpaceX people are very clearly distinct from the NASA people and that for the bulk of operations they don't really work together at the lower levels.

A lot of times when looking at a character's description (especially in the protagonist's entry in a game's instruction manual), I see the phrase "a strong sense of justice". It's truly baffling how many times I've seen that phrase used in description, but I can't figure out for the life of me what it actually means. Is it just used as a more or less meaningless way to give informed personality to a bland character? Or does it really have some meaning toward the character's feelings and actions?

So I am getting this Burger King ad a lot on youtube.

And I wonder, their thing is some mistery about a menu for about €5 and then they're like "Just imagine what you can get for €5"

and I don't get it. Wouldn't it be better if they showed you the menu so you can get hungry looking at it.

I also never got any opportunity yet to visit Burger King, will try the KFC maybe once or twice when it opens in Brussels.

Hey everyone! I wanted to take some time and talk about something that i don't normally talk about.

Before anyone asks, i'm doing fine actually. i just completed job training at my new job, and while there are a couple hiccups here and there i could complain about, i'm ultimately not in a bad space.

but if there is one thing i'm not really adept with, it's talking and being open with my own feelings of inadequacy. which is something i experience quite a bit.

I don't air it out, because i usually want people to be in a good mood around me, because i often only feel good with company if everyone is in a good mood. so when i see people complaining or being negative, i really feel it, and it brings me down emotionally quite a bit.

that being said, it also makes me a lot less likely to be able to just vent my own feelings and frustrations, because i would be doing the one thing i don't like the most. but over time, i've learned that keeping it in all the time isn't good for you, and that i should learn to trust my friends more with my feelings, cause they are my friends.

So i wanted to start a thread where we could just be real with some things that are going on with us, and the things we kept to ourselves. i'm not asking you to expose yourself if you don't want to. Just to know that you don't always have to smile like it's all okay if it's not all okay.

I found out some stuff about myself recently, had an epiphany of sorts. Gained a bit of clarity about myself, connected some dots. I guess i'd like to share it here. It does get pretty real though, i'm very much bearing my soul here, and at times it will get very weird and strange, but i suppose this is the thread for it. Feel free to delete the comment if it ends up being too much. I'll totally understand.

So for a long time, i've been drawn to the strange and disturbing, and i never quite could put my finger on why. It wasn't sadistically thrilling or arousing, i'd kinda chalked it up to morbid curiosity. I've always been the curious sort. Eventually i considered that curiosity, morbid or otherwise, a core part of who i am. In a sense, i still do, but i have a better sense of what it truly is now. I've consumed a lot of horrible, horrible media. Nothing illegal, but things that would make people's skin crawl. Things that would break people with less experience in these matters or less resolve. I never quite got why though, even when it was painful to go through, but now i know. I seek these things out myself, and consume them myself, in private. Putting that to the side for now, i want to establish the concept of the normie filter.

For those who don't know, "normie" is slang for a normal person. People whose natures fit the expected mold of society, a straight shooter, so to speak. A normie filter then, is an element of a piece of media designed to deter a normie from getting too involved in that piece of media. Think black mirror's pilot. Something that would disturb and upset the normies and keep them away. This means a piece of media can then go on to tell it's story to those who are willing to truly listen and appreciate without fear of normie retribution, since normies wouldn't get on the bandwagon in the first place, and from then on you don't need to worry about them as a demographic. This is important, because the more widespread and popular a piece of media is, the more popular culture sands down it's edges, trims it's claws and file's it's teeth. harshness and meaning are inextricably stripped away when it becomes the normie center of attention, normies will inevitably sand it and mold it until it's comfortable, harmless, tasteless, meaningless slop. In other words, popularity and accessibility is the inevitable death of true art, at least if the artist is willing to make those considerations, which i think is the case the vasPost too long.
