Come on in and experience with me the mild stimulating effect of asking questions to a person on the internet. As a sign on bonus I will even ask you bizarre and sometimes nonsensical questions in return!
To help grease the wheels here is a list of potential topics that might give you an idea of a question to ask me:
-i finished my end of half performance review last week at my job
-I have a cat
-I wear socks with sandals
-my drivers liscense is expired and I plan to commit the crime of going to the store later today
-My thumb bends in a super freaky way
-cake is a type of pizza
-or you know, whatever, surprise me with your dumbest questions

Yes, he also goes by "cat" "kitten" and "ouch goddamn wtf".

If no, does he even want to?
No, I'm not named Jack.

I have a patio area that he freely goes out on. He can exit that if he wants but he doesn't. One time he did and got lost and started trying to get into someone else's apartment.
I'm not named Jack.

I think Andrea heard him moaning outside and went to investigate. He was pawing at a neighbors back door and the kids in the apartment were upset trying to get him to go away. So Andrea retrieved him and he'll probably never try that again
Jack was his name at the shelter and I saw no reason to change it. I just wanted a companion, I'm not picky what they're called. Almost seems weird to rename him, if i adopted a child I wouldn't change their name!
Nine of clubs is a nice card. What card would you pick for me? I already have an answer, if you match mine you will earn the secret bonus thread prize, so pick wisely!>>1090504
He's made of cat! Like his entire body is! Really remarkable. I have scars all over because he's very sharp as far as animals go. He hates children and other animals! But he'll let me do pretty much anything with him, so i cradle him and other stupid shit.
What is the very most uninteresting thing about you?
>>1090505>Cat hates children
Well that's a bit unfortunate. But Jack does sound like good kitty all the same!
That I sit around never producing any of my own original works even tohugh I do want to cause I have next to no faith I can do it well? That I don't ever go anywhere cause I can't drive nad will never make the kind of money that will allow me to travel?

Ooo, an AMA thread! I'll ask you one of my favorite questions
If you had a team of highly experienced scientific researchers at your command, what would you want them to study?

Yeah, he's a good cat. Very affectionate to the right people, who is me!
That sounds more depressed than uninteresting. I was expecting something more along the lines of "has ten fingers and toes"!
Why does it matter to you if you do it well? What would happen if you did it poorly?>>1090507
Maybe something to do with cognition and intelligence in animals. I keep hearing about interesting findings, such as rats diving little cars through a maze just for the enjoyment of it. That's pretty cool and I wanna know more about the experiences of animals and what they are capable of (and what they aren't too).
If you had the same research team but could only dedicate them to the field of video game research, what would you have them study?>>1090511
Tall enough to reach the top shelf. Like every single one. All top shelves are within reach. Mathematicians are working to see if there exists a theoretical top shelf I couldn't reach.
If you were a board game, what kinds of components and mechanics would you expect to be a part of you?
Well I do have those, so I am uninteresting too!
No one would have any faith in anything else I do from there. And me being weak and dumb I'd probably lose whatever little drive I have squirreled away somewhere.

To improve your craft? To see if you were able to make something. I mean, i routinely do shit that goes nowhere and only wastes time but it could turn out cool. I've only ever succeeded by failing, so i don't get the idea that fucking up is a waste of time. Is that weird?
I hit long stretches of being practically incapable of seeing good in anything I do. I'd likely hit a wall of "Well if this turned shit then everything else will too".
I know I'm stupid, but that's about as far as my mind goes a lot of the time it seems.

I know that you also identify as transgender (I think), but I'm wondering if you could expand on that to what precisely you think of your 'true self' as being and how long you've known that (assuming that you've a handle on 'true self' type discussions, of course, since there's nothing wrong with being a 'work in progress'). What does your identity mean to you? I wonder.
It's on my mind since I'm awaiting word from a medical center r.e. gender-affirming care myself that I've had e-mail exchanges with. I'm anxious. Yet, well, having a tooth removed earlier in the week and my face/head/mouth feeling funky in a bad way doesn't help. Eh.

What would need to change in order for you to have faith in your abilities as a baseline?>>1090524
I identify as trans non binary. I've been taking estrogen and Spiro for half a year.
I guess i think of myself more as a work in progress. I started HRT to explore the idea of true self cuz i couldn't really logic it out. Being on it, instead of answering that question I instead just stopped caring about the question itself. To me, it's like a cis person who's never had the need to think about their gender. So I just *do* and rely on instinct to take me places on my gender journey than come up with thoughts like what my true self looks like. Thinking has historically gotten me nowhere in this endeavor.
What do you think of your true self? How do you use that to guide your own exploration?
Not having a shitty mind that constantly builds roadblocks for myself?
If I knew how not to be this way, I'd be doing it.

As somebody who's specifically bigender nonbinary trans, well, I'm finding that identity is complicated and stays as such the more I get into it. If science was no object, then my 'true self' would be a lot more feminine to the point of probably presenting totally androgynously, being like half my size not just in terms of weight but body frame in every sense... arms, legs, feet, hands, and elsewhere... plus would have breasts, more stereotypical curves broadly, long, flowing hair, and more. Unfortunately, my current body is so far from my mental sense of 'true self' that everything moving to that from possible vocal surgery to possible wigs and so on feel like feeble, small measures. Hormone treatments helped before but that's had to be discontinued, so no more estrogen and progesterone plus testosterone blockers. Blargh.I might have to get surgery to take out my testicles given how bad the situation is. Not sure.
Still, I'm working on improving myself, even if there are a lot of small steps here and there. That's something. It helps.
Finally having some kind of money if/when I eventually get either the stimulus check for this year that's 1,400$ or I get my tax refund or both would help immensely. Everything from nail polish to new, feminine outits to vocal coaching and more costs money, and I'm at a pretty suffocating stage as far as that goes (been like that all year so far, really). Fingers crossed.

I was thinking more of achieving a lofty goal or something. A thing you can't just choose to do to fix things, but would prove something to yourself. Like being hired at an art studio or something! If nothing comes to mind, that's fair. Was just wondering what kind of thing would build your confidence.
What do you like most about the process of doing art type stuff?>>1090532
Yeah, I totally respect the idea of being a lot smaller! I guess I don't think about it much because it's literally impossible to change but being petite is something that resonates. I guess I have the fortune to not be very dysphoric about such things since my "doing" thing is working out so well.
Yeah, I'm sorry that your body is giving you so much hassle you can't even do standard hrt safely. That really bums me out since I had been keeping tabs on your hrt journey and was someone inspired by your progress. Is there anything you can do to mitigate the clotting issue that put things on hold? Or is that just off the table as an option now?
I actually have a lot of makeup that I don't really use much. I bought a lot of things to explore with at one point to figure out some things. I dunno how you'd feel about it but would you like some hand me down stuff? I couldn't imagine a better place for it to go! >>1090534

That would be finishing the comic. That I started like... three years ago. And haven't drawn a page of in two years. Precisely BECAUSE I suddenly lost all faith and despite it only being 25-ish pages with 13 done...
I dunno, seeing it start to come together at the end? The linearting part is nice, kind of seeing how your sketch suddenly starts making sense and results in a clean product.

Spending half a year on HRT was something that really helped as far as depression, anxiety, and more. I'm majorly frustrated to say the least that it looks as if chemical treatments are off the table for now as far as dysphoria. That's, at least, my understanding based on conversations with different medical professionals.
I'll be speaking to my regular doctor tomorrow, actually, to go over blood work done recently. Am worried that blood thinners might have even more negative consequences besides being off of HRT. I'll see. This all is something that we're definitely going to chat about. And I'm, like I posted before, awaiting word from a specialist center about seeing them.
If you have hair dye, make-up, nail polish, wigs, and the like, well, sure if you're interested in sending over then interested in chatting about that more. Thank you.

Well, hopefully you still have non surgical options available! What's your tolerance for risk look like here? We all have been told hrt incurs risk before starting, so I'm wondering how you are approaching risk now that you've gone through what you have.
No wigs or hair dye. I've got a lot of nail polish, lip colors, and eye shadows/liners, etc. Mostly I stick to a handful of polishes and rarely try the other stuff anymore. Seems doing my nails is enough to appease my gender haha. I'm happy to box up the extras and send them your way if you are comfortable with the safety aspect of making that a reality.>>1090541

Well, I'm definitely moving slowly as far as future treatment goes in terms of absolutely every condition that I have, from diabetes to depression to dysphoria and more. I'm checking up on everything. Being careful. Talking with my step-dad. Looking to see what others say in LGBT support group meetings.
Risk is a complex thing. There's totally risk in terms of various surgeries. And if I find some way to modify my hormones without incurring clotting issues, well, there will still be risk there. At the same time, going through life in a depressive fog day after day due to my body just being so... unlike my 'true self' is itself a bad risk that's constant. So, careful decisions must be made.
Sure, I don't really mind sharing real-life names and addresses, just wouldn't want to do it here. You have a Telegram?

I can afford to pay the inflated rate, but it's the principle of being punished for loyalty that motivates me to move. I can go even cheaper if I shop around, maybe as much as 600$ cheaper monthly.

Well for starters, i think it will continue to be more in depth. I've already seen a few youtubers and such test out this suit that helps to simulate touch from other players in VR. I even remember hearing somewhere that the company that made Genshin Impact is working on a full VR MMO.
I see VR as an entirely new medium of art and hope to see ever more unique video games to come out of it as well as maybe the creation of VR movies. Maybe even providing a means of exploring museums, tourist locations, historical monuments, etc. for those that are home bound for one reason or another.

Yeah, however it goes hopefully I'll land in a good place!
I'm good with any questions! No need to worry about that. I would say it's all positives. Without being explicit I can say that I'm not fertile anymore but sexual function itself is basically as good as ever so I don't have any complaints. I can't really think of any other negatives other than it not giving me answers the way I'd hoped! But I got something else instead so whatever.
My insurance is comprehensive. My company specifically negotiated the policy with the providers so that trans care is fully covered. Basically anything you can think of is just a small co-pay and the hassle of dealing with the process. Perks of my job i guess!
I've thought briefly about piercing, tattoo, and stuff like. Maybe dyeing my hair is the closest thing I might try. But I'd want to have help from someone experienced before trying it. So haven't really moved forward with that idea. What are you interested in for yourself?>>1090574

A fine choice. Bouncy and fun.
Thats a hard question to answer, because it really depends on genre/mood/situation ect.Buuuuut
one thing that any song of any genre should do, to bring it to that next level for me, is invoke a feel.
What is your earliest memory?

Oh, I'm glad that you're able to be so happy with yourself in terms of personal identity!
For myself when it comes to physical modifications, well, I'm not too keen on piercings (despite the fact that I guess they're super popular among transgender people for whatever reasons), but I'm kind of conventional when it comes to wanting to color myself brightly up... like dying my pair partly sky blue or partly a vibrant pink. That'd be wonderful. Nail polish I'm also thinking about. Different stylish dresses. So many options through just Amazon.com and online shopping alone.I'm genuinely not sure if I'm still fertile or not, myself, but I guess it's one of multiple things that I need to work on with a gender affirming specialist when I'm able to get back into treatment with one. Either way, it's an issue I'm not really caring that much about. I just want to see what options remain for me given my circumstances.

Are you not feeling very pro social lately? Are people being more disappointing than usual?>>1090584
Yeah, invoking a feel is a good way to describe a next level song! Usually a song having lyrics which resonate is a part of that for me. What is an example of song which invokes a feel for you?>>1090585
I'm not into hardcore piercings but I sorta like the idea of some simple studs on the ear or something like that!
What color nail polish are you most interested in? I've got a lot of blues and purple, though orange was surprisingly a favorite of mine!
Amazon wardrobe is a great option for trying new styles btw. Hell, you could order a dress just for the fun of it with no intention of buying! I did that a few times, though I was open to buying of course if I really liked it. Was a nice way to learn what I wanted to wear.
Yeah, fertility is a really up front issue so i doubt anyone going this far is gonna be upset that it happened! I feel if I were to ever have kids adoption is a better choice anyway. Could you ever imagine wanting to raise kids yourself? I'm not ready for such a thing but I could see it being a possibility!

Ahh, even though I've never seen a picture of you or heard what you look like, I get the feeling that something like ear studs would look very cute on you!
Colors... I like reds of all kinds in terms of possibilities for my nails, but then blues and purples seem interesting as well. I need to play around more. Will have time in the future since I'm going to LGBT in-person events again, what with now that my recovery from being out of the hospital is just about done.
I've thought about Amazon Wardrobe, yeah, but I guess the truth is I feel dysphoric about my whole closet, kind of. It's so drab. I want to do some kind of transplant with somebody else, maybe via Reddit or someplace else finding an FTM individual of a similar size or some other transgender related network to swap items.
Children... well, as somebody who was legally adopted from my step-dad's side I definitely have for years and years wanted to pay it forward. Have hoped that at some point I'll have the ability to stand up strong and raise adopted children to make a positive difference in the world, righting wrongs by teaching them acceptance and kindness even if they didn't get that at first.
As far as additional questions, hmmmmm, maybe... so, music wise, what have you listened to in the past 24 hours that you most recommend for others? And after sharing that, maybe I could do the same back to you?

I think it fits me! I got too much to work on as is but maybe one day I'll visit piercings for real.
I like certain shades of red but I'm not big on the really bright red for some reason. I dunno, feels almost too mature for me haha! I like pastels and colors that are playful~
Hmm sounds like you need a total makeover! I'm pretty happy with GNC styles so I have most of my original wardrobe. I've just added some cute socks, skirts, t shirt dresses, and lots of nice sweaters! Actually my winter wardrobe looks a lot better than what I have the summer. Most days i just throw on a plain t and skirt and call it a day haha
I feel pretty similar about adopted children. I guess the nice thing is you can do that pretty much any age so I don't feel like the biological clock is ticking. I'll maybe get a house in a couple years and at that point do some serious thinking about it.
I've been listening to the album Bouquet from Hololive! I'm really digging it. I don't think it's for everyone but I guess I'd give it recommend for people into jpop.
I'm open to suggestion but I'm pretty particular about my music so hard to say whether I'll be into it. Always willing to try something new though.>>1090589

Is that some kind of universal experience or does nobody know what I mean by that? I wonder>>1090592

Yeah, actually at my level at the company I'm supposed to be grinding out implemention but I just ignore my seniors and managers and do the kind of creative work i like instead. Well, on the side really, I still have to finish assigned projects.
Is this your "dream job"? Or just kinda what you fell into?>>1090596
Ha, interesting! Once i started describing it i was thinking how I've never seen or heard of this little game since that memory, so probably nobody is gonna know what that is. I wonder if it's still a thing in preschools.
Do you remember most things in first person or third person? I only really recall things in third person, which obviously can't be how i originally experienced it! So I am pretty skeptical about my memories generally.
Oh, this is a pretty nice song!
I'm too lazy to look up what's the furthest distance but it's either Santiago or London. But if we wanted to talk cultural distance then Santiago for sure! That was a fun trip.>>1090597
Hmm, I don't care much for the second song, though I do recognize the talent it took to put that together!
As for the first and third I see some potential but i struggle to enjoy live performances. It's like the crowd is too distracting and saps any enjoyment of the music from me. If I went to a live performance that would be different but I can't really handle recorded performances well.
You chose these for being performed live, do you enjoy them more that way?>>1090598

I don't think they were scared as much as confused and annoyed at Jack. Why is this strange cat being so loud at our backdoor? My parents aren't here and I don't know how to handle this situation! I'm sure there was much character built that day haha
Nope! I could give him one maybe. But if I did it'd probably be something really dumb like "Cat". The advantage though is I could call him Mister Cat!
Ten of diamonds sounds like a good card but I actually chose the four of spades for myself. It was just the first thing that came to mind so I'm like, sure sounds right! Diamonds is a pretty good suit though, even if it's generally ranked lower than hearts and spades.

It must be! Maybe I'll ask my nieces if they played that when they were younger.
The process of memory is very interesting. That it's so easy to have false memories is so concerning! My memory in particular is super sketchy, so generally i just try to live in the present at all times. Your past is built into your present self anyway!
Every time I left the country was for work purposes. My old company was pretty good at selling internationally and the setup was complex enough it had to have an onsite engineer to perform it. That was usually me in most cases. Only places I didn't go were ones that are hostile towards lgbt people. My boss actually fought with me to go to the UAE and I was like, no thanks! The dude was a dick about it but he couldn't force me to travel.
Downside to visiting on business trips is you usually are too tired to do anything touristy at the end of the day. My Santiago trip i was working 9-5 with my customer then got back to my room and kept working until 11 or so. Kept that up for a week! On Friday, we all went out to celebrate completing the project. That's a night I'll never forget, despite downing enough alcohol to kill the average sized person haha
Have your ever "blacked out" from drinking or pot or whatever (if you even do such things)? I find it weird that people experience that kind of thing cuz I've always kept a really good handle of things while inebriated! So much so I don't fully understand why people bother with these kinds of substances.

I try not to think about the false memories thing too much because it always leads to existential thinking about how many people were victims in court because of it, the i have to listen to Bob Dylan haha.
The present is for sure the best place to live, though its also the hardest haha. I like your outlook on that.
Yeeeeeeeah, i wouldn't want to go to the UAE ether in that position. Like, i guess i could be under the lgbt flag, but theres nothing outwardly indicative of it so i guess as long as i didnt do a sex, id be okay. Its good you were not forced to go though. Travel for work is not the same as for a vacation, your right, but its still a cool cultural experience since people spend most of their time working so thats a real look into the everyday of a place, i think.
No, actually i never have and i view that as a negative because it means i remember all the stupid shit I've done under the influence haha. But alternatively it means i remember all the stupid shit ive done under the influence so i know I've never done anything too bad and i can make a good apology haha. So i guess its a positive too. Or maybe it cancels out to neutrality, idk haha.

Ugh, yeah and people are so confident about their memories without realizing how flawed the whole thing is!
It's true that you can't identify a person's sexuality on first appearances though when prison or execution is on the table if things go wrong I'm taking a pass! Lots of times customers make small talk and I don't want to rely on my lying skills if they start asking me questions about my love life. I actually did lie like that in Santiago even though it's not too bad a place for lgbt. But why risk it?
Haha, what kind of stupid shit have you done that's within the bounds of sharing here? I almost feel like I'm missing a quintessential human experience that I've never really done anything embarrassing while drunk! Not that this is so bad a thing to miss out on haha
That's such a huge question for me! I've made so many big positive changes in the last half decade it's hard to even answer that.
I guess if I wanted to sum up all those improvements into one positive change i would say the biggest change was mastering my fear. I used to have anxiety so bad i could barely interact with people, wouldn't express myself or draw attention to myself in any way, couldn't stand up for myself, couldn't seek help, couldn't do anything to improve myself because fear was all consuming. The process of overcoming that was long and difficult but I feel I've made it and I'm a completely different person now! So much so I can't even identify with my own memories of past anxiety, they are that foreign. >>1090640

Sure. Still need to even DECIDE what to do for the Zine though. And deadline is in like eight days. Awesome.
I guess it's that a lot of our words can mean very different things based on concept, and that we have a lot of... I forget the correct term, but words that mean nothing other than the emotion they convey. Like they don't actually refer to a tangible object or such. And while with some words we lack seperation from two different aspects (like how you have words "Fate" and "Destiny" that mean similar, but slightly different things while we just have the one - "Skæbne" - that can mean both) with other things, we have a ton of silly synonyms for the same basic thing.

Who are you and what have you done with the real Ina?
Same magazine, but I am only doing an illustration this time. Wanted to depict a lesser-known creature from folklore around the world, but I haven't yet decided on which one I most wanna do.
The most commonly used as an example is "hygge" - the closest you get to explaining it is "coziness", but it literally just means "to be having a nice time with loved ones", in just about all forms. Anything from just hanging out with friends to "tv night" and whatever. Just a chill, nice time.
And then there are sillier words like "Hurlumhej" which is just a silly-sounding word describing a general feeling of whimsy and fun. The wors themselves have no meaning beyond the feel of the room, basically. But these are just two random examples.

Yeah, okay the execution thing is admittedly a bit off putting haha. You're right, if you have a choice not to go, its best not to.
Noting bad, im a pretty happy drunk, but, maybe a bit tooo
happy sometimes haha. Mostly i get lewd when im drunk. I've never done anything that like, hurt someone or something though. I guess me and a friend got into a few fist fights when we were younger though, but it was pretty mutual and we both started it our respective times, and by the end we were always laughing about something. Still.. i feel like an apology given when it wasnt necessary isnt as bad an apology withheld when it was required so its easier to just be like "sorry if i sucked last night" haha.
Thats a pretty 'uge change tbh. I've had friends that i would label their anxiety as "crippling" that have put work in and been able to overcome it and its one of the best things to watch, it literally opens up the world to them, so im really happy to hear you were able to do that as well.

What do you need to get to 100%?
FB is quite good, well suited to me! I love the freedom here, i can basically do whatever I want (within reason). My relationship with my manager is such that I'm practically their boss, they're pretty much there to make my life easier!
So that's all good. But I guess the bad is that I'm constantly being assigned really difficult and unfun tasks related to government regulation. Like, the past month my whole job might as well been auditing code and logging! I get that it's important for a lot of reasons but it really ruins my work week when these things come down. I didn't realize it when I joined my team but we are positioned in such a place in the FB ecosystem that we're constantly on the hook for these things! If I didn't have to do it, that would really make this a dream. But some things can't be helped.
Besides that, I hate that often doing the kind of thing which promotes a healthy engineering culture is rewarded but getting that reward requires so much more effort (explaining why this is important, how it actually helps in practice) than just doing a big new feature which is just granted to you as being worthwhile. So i do all these important things which raises our discipline using talents few people have but I feel like I'm taking the hard road when I could just be pushing out projects that anyone could be doing. Seems so dumb to me that this is the way they decided to do things.>>1090666
I enjoy not being executed! I read up on it and they would never execute a foreigner for being gay (might just be years in prison). But like, just having that as law is a big "nope!" for me!
I guess alls well that ends well! Do you enjoy the state of drunkenness? What's the appeal to you?
Thanks! I totally worked hard for this and all the effort seriously paid off. I go as far as to say I'm an extrovert these days which would be something unimaginable before.
Remove one thing, hmm. I mean, that's tough since most things we don't like are around for a good reason. Can't just off all mosquitos unless we want to really mess up some ecosystems. Hell, even something like pride—which has blinded countless people—is something that's personally really important to me now as a recovered depressed person.
I dunno, maybe cancer? I can't think of a downside there. If I wanted to maximize my impact i might try a more creative approach (like, remove some law of physics that let's us exploit the world for easy infinite energy!) but I got to get back to work soon so you can imagine I came up with that!

Kinda long. There's a lot of options. I kinda want to do a boogieman-style creature from some culture and found a pretty neat graphic summing some up, but it's hard to pick. I am notoriously indecisive.
Aside from "No, we aren't a city in Sweden, nor are we Germany or The Netherlands?"
Honestly, just really more that we EXIST. We get massively overlooked despite several contributions to world culture.
And on a more personal level, I do wish more people could understand the nuances that DO exist in our language cause I like to share music from here. I happily translate for those interested, but it will (of course) never quite be the same. I just think we have / have had some excellent songwriters.

No one else in my family liked them so I rarely got it.
Just now finished making an OEM shift knob for my roommates 350z. It's my first time working with carbon fiber and it turned out ok. I'm thinking of taking his old shift knob and trying again to see if I can improve at all.
I'm working on fixing rust on my Miata which is now becoming a chore.
I need to organize garage too
I s'pose. WOrked well for the Mr. Freeze drawing recently at least.
Well, for a few obvious ones, Lego and the fairy tales of Hans Christian Andersen. But then we have current high-profile actors like Mads Mikkelsen, Nicholah Coster-Waldau, Viggo Mortensen and Pilou Asbæk.
Aside from that, there's Søren Kierkegaard, the philosopher, is danish, Lars Urich from Metallica, Jørn Utzon who designed the Sydney Opera House, renowned pianist and comedian Victor Borge (originally Børge Rosenbaum), art film director Lars Von Trier, bands such as Michael Learns to Rock and Nephew, we have one of the oldest flags/monarchies in the world...
And yet, if we're REALLY lucky, the average person outside of Scandinavia or Germany MAYBE goes "Denmark, U MMMMMMM IS THAT LIKE A STREET IN OSLO OR SOMETHIGN".
I have seen MAPS that clearly label Sweden and Norway, and just leave us out completely .
It's not so much "everyone should know all our famous shit" and more "Hey, we're literally right here too, stop only ever mentioning Sweden for fucks sake."

Ehh more on the job physical activity and adventure is the main thing I guess. That's achievable though. There never will be a 100%. I'm always looking to make things better.
Im thankful I don't have to deal with that junk. We have to take certain things very seriously, but so seriously we have lawyers do those things instead of us. The handful of engineers including myself do what they want with minimal oversight as long as we get the job done. I work on my own projects and experiments as I please.
But I'm glad to hear you're doing well and making it work for you. I'll admit I'd be wary working for a big org like FB so nice to see some of my preconceptions are wrong.

Proudest might be getting the job offer at my current company! Gayest might be coming out as non binary. I'm not sure how the rules really work but I just assume that everyone is gay for me and I'm gay for everyone else!

Like, I dunno how it is with your company but you can imagine at fb we're nonstop being poked by the FTC and whatever Europe has, etc. It wouldn't surprise me if the company was getting lawsuits over privacy on a daily basis!
Yeah, I mean FB has a pretty bad rep but I gotta say it treats its engineers like rock stars! Sometimes they miss the mark but for the most part it's a really awesome place to work.

Honestly i think i might prefer execution to years in prison.. but neither is most preferable haha.
I mean, i do it, so i must like it right? (the morning not so much).
Idk, being drunk just kind of exaggerates who i am sober. Im much more extroverted and talkative and stuff "@everyone" is something i much more apt to type haha. Idk, alcohol is called a social lubricant for a reason and it really earned that name. Sometimes i feel like i get drunk for other peoples benefit haha.
FUN FACT! There are studies that have predicted that we could wipe every single mosquito off the face of the earth and it would have little to no impact on the ecosystem haha. They really arnt a food source for much, supplementary at best. Thats not to say that its been proven, but i think its funny that there are people wondering "what are the diminishing returns on it.. " haha.
Cancer is a good answer, yeah not much benefit there. I could get all monkeys paw about it though and talk about over population and such though. Thats the hardest part about this question haha.
I would remove the concept of intellectual bias.

FB probably treats its people better than the mining and consultants I'm largely thinking of. They treat their engineers like plebs.
I actually have two jobs, but both are basically the same thing just for different orgs. The reason I raise this is because of a notable difference. One has basically no dress standards other than, you know, not lingerie. The other has pointlessly strict standards about what to wear and what I can do with my hair under the pretense of professionalism/presentation. I hate it so much and would like to have full autonomy over my scalp for once in my life (private school as a teenager was much the same). I have a plan in place to work my way through the complex human terrain and position myself to get around these restrictions. Until then it's unfortunately just deal with it because I need certain things from them and if all they ask is my hair then I guess they can have it for now.
Sure, many, many. In many ways I regret studying my master's entirely. But hindsight is 20/20 I was simply too naive at 17 to do what I now wished I had done. I feel very behind in many ways but also this is where I am and what I've got. Not really all that much point naval gazing about it.

I was going to ask a simple question, but now one bit in the overall conservation has me kind of confused...
Aren't you considered "not gay" and "not lesbian" sort of by definition if you're transgender nonbinary? Since you're not accepted by lesbian organizations and in lesbian social spaces, commonly? And if you're a transgender nonbinary person who's in a relationship with a woman, say, but who is attracted to men as well, wouldn't you be 'betraying lesbianism' through your attractions, according to them?
Or is it all self-identification, then? If so, what if somebody is nonbinary and refuses to ever be called "gay" because they just need other terminology? Shouldn't that make sense? Same as needing to be called "they" instead of "it" or whatever alternatives?
>>1090725> Since you're not accepted by lesbian organizations and in lesbian social spaces, commonly?
literally what are you talking about??? did you have a bad experience or something and now you assume all lesbians are inherently TERFs and have issues with trans/nonbinary people?
Because I can assure you, that is not the case by a long shot.

Yeah both suck as options. I say let's just not visit the UAE! Not all life's problems are easy, but fortunately this one is~
See, I'm over the top without the need for lube! When i was feeling annoyed with an audit I was doing for work I messaged all my coworkers and managers in group chat saying "does anyone know how to contact hr? Because I'm being bullied by the FTC with all this documentation and I'd like to file a complaint!". That sparked a very silly conversation, so much so that a coworker my senior messaged me about potentially getting fired and I was like, pfft we're paid too much to be fired for being silly! Then I detailed all the ways I've already given my manager a headache with my antics haha. So I guess I my case, alcohol has not much to lend me!
Intellectual bias huh? Don't you think a lot of innovative things have come from intellectual bias? I'm not sure if you have a different idea in mind but I can see a lot of ways that happy accidents happen because someone was stubbornly insistent on perusing something despite evidence to the contrary! I mean, that might still be a sacrifices worth taking though given the harm that comes from such biases.
I might choose to keep working even if i didn't have to! My work is kinda one of my joys and it gives me structure and goals. When I was unemployed I got less leisure done than despite having way more time!
But in the spirit of the question, I might try to invest more effort into a creative outlet. I do some art but I'd like to do more.>>1090712

As to the pic, I guess it's up to interpretation. I don't know the viewing habits of the cohort of TV viewers in order to tell. Maybe literally nobody watches 1 1/2 hours of tv a day! But assuming there's no oddity like that the survey is confusing and doesn't bound its options well. The intent is probably to round down before selecting an answer. It works if that's the case but leaves gaps without the rounding.>>1090720

Ah, nice! Are all your partners women, or are some non binary? Do you feel like you have enough time in your weeks to spend with your partners?>>1090721
We don't pull punches in this thread! But if we did, what is one of the easiest questions you ever had to answer?>>1090725
What would you be if not gay and not lesbian? The English language really doesn't have answers to these questions so really I think it's pretty much up to an individual how they identity so long as there's some logic to it.
In my experience nearly all women groups have been very open and inviting to non binary identities and I've seen few issues with that kind of acceptance. I know the opposite exists but I don't hang around spaces i would expect to find terfy lesbians
As for all the other questions, i generally let people identify with the words that feel true to them, so long as they understand the meaning of the words and are sincere about it. Obviously that doesn't work every time but I think people generally know what feels right and usually less gatekeeping is better. >>1090728

It's about half and half, honestly.
Three nonbinary, three trans women.
And yeah, there's really no issue with having time to spend with them.
I'm kind of really hands off in general when I'm dating someone, I can't spend a lot of time with one person or do a lot of things that couples usually like to do together (like play games or do hours-long calls) bc of autism and adhd stuff. And all my partners are aware of and understanding of that.
It's honestly why being poly is so good for me with relationships, because all my partners have other partners, so when I can't spend a lot of time with them for whatever reason, they have someone else to fill the time with.
Of course, I always check in and talk to them all whenever I can and we do stuff once in a while.
What about you, are you dating anyone currently? Or if not are you actively looking for someone or just kinda letting things happen as they will?

Are you seriously not aware or just not understanding of the decades upon decades of seething hatred and hostility that's been shown by the feminist and lesbian communities to wide swaths of people judged as inferiors for being "too awkward", "too autistic", "too Christian", "too conservative", "too creepy", "too incel", "too fat", "too frumpy", "too gross", "too greasy", "too masculine", "too traditional", "too ugly", "too unpassing", and everything else that's been pouring across the internet like perpetual rain?
For my own part, the sense that I could never be "good enough to be feminine" because of that high gender pedestal that some individuals place themselves on while punching down at everybody else who's not as wonderfully classy, girly, fit, progressive, smart, trendy, et cetera... I spent the longest time not wanting to come out of the closet gender wise because of all of that negativity. That sense that I'll never be worth accepting in those superior spaces for the superior people. And for the longest time I've been afraid to date as well because of all of this up on a pedestal nature of gender roles... not liking that total submission to others of whether or not I'm good enough to 'count' as worthy of certain labels.
This is something that I still, to the point of literally thinking about suicide, worry about today.
I don't mean to thread hijack but... come on... don't pretend "Oh, it's only a little, tiny bit of hostility there from a fringe that's not accepting, most everything is peaches and creams" please.

Ehh, I'm not set on anything. It's more just the ability to relax and experiment. I'm mostly just sick of someone growling at me because of my hair. I wouldn't even go for that outlandish of a style. But all dying is against the code so I can't even just play with natural coloured highlights and I can't undercut my ponytail in the summer because 'hair lengh must fade gradually'. The whole 'neat and presentable' clause means they growl at you for any style that is too messy.
Like I'm not interested in crazy pink anime hair or anything. Pretty much the kinds of things people under 60 just wear these days.
Can't let it fall on your face either. Everyone know people with hair over their face are Satan worshipping emos who want to cut themselves. Not professionals.

I'm not saying it doesn't exist at all LMAO
I'm saying that you are making some VERY HEAVY assumptions about a VERY LARGE group of people that have been extremely accepting of a lot of different types of people
and yet you keep implying that every cis lesbian and every lesbian space or organization are filled with TERFs, which is very much not the case.
Also, there is a BIG BIG BIG difference between what the internet is like and what real life is like. The internet is not an accurate representation of what lesbians in the real world are like at all, it's literally the place where people who would get kicked out of real life spaces for saying the bullshit they say go to to spread their gross opinions.
Don't conflate the way that TERFs have basically taken over the internet with the way that lesbians are in the real world, because they are very much completely different situations.
It looks like literally your entire experience with lesbians have been TERFs on the internet. You don't have the experience to know different, literally exactly what I thought.
Like, I'm sorry that you have only had bad experiences with lesbians on the internet, but that is FAR from the universal experience you seem to think it is. There are just as many accepting lesbians on the internet as there are ones that aren't, and the real world is filled with even more of them. The LGBT Pride movement was inspired by and spearheaded by trans lesbians and the majority of lesbians in the real world understand that and are much more accepting than you would think.

You're making quite a lot of assumptions yourself, particularly when you don't know me that well (and neither I you). We come from different backgrounds and have lived lives with various offline and online experiences, and I get that yours has gone a certain way. However, for huge swaths of people it's been the other way. You're valid. But we're also valid.
We can use the word "TERFs", but I'm talking more broadly about tolerance and understanding in all senses. I understand that under standard progressive trendy belief this isn't the case, but to me being bullied for being transgender and being bullied for, say, having autism or having depression is close to identical from a standpoint of both being morally wrong. I don't care if "autistic" is a standard feminist and lesbian insult word considered acceptable to lodge at somebody who's too inferior for acceptance and that somebody doing that can have a clear conscience that they're not a bigot. I still see it as bigotry.
Same thing as mocking people for their weight. Or body hair. Or relative size of their body parts. They didn't ask to be born a certain way. I consider it bigotry. I don't care if it's not bigotry under current progressive ideology. To me, it's still prejudice and is still wrong.
I can say practically that I've yet to see anything in terms of EVIDENCE that feminist and/or lesbian spaces would be helpful to me if I restarted trying to enter them offline and online. Any more than, say, I'd expect hardcore right-wing Trumpians who for ever reason would be utterly anti-LGBT in general to welcome me into their offline and online spaces. What say you any different in terms of EVIDENCE? You have your life background, and that's valid, but it can't be transplanted wholesale.

Ah, then it's great that it works out that way for you! I know from experience the difficulty adhd alone brings to a relationship. Honestly I sometimes feel I barely can contribute enough to a single relationship so while I'd be open to poly type relationships I don't know if I could manage. I'm not even managing 6 friendships reliably haha. Though you make a good point about your partners having partners. Something like that would probably work for me if I got into that situation
But anyway it sounds like you found a great set of people for your needs so I'm happy for you! I love when people find solutions that fit their needs
I have a girlfriend I've been dating for just about a decade now! We're both adhd so we kinda get each other. There's struggles in that but I think we basically make it work. Technically I'm open to having more partners but I'm not searching. If the situation fell in my lap I'd have to talk it through with my partner but I think she'd not have a problem, situation depending. But, i doubt such a situation will present itself anyway since I'm pretty content with this as is!>>1090737
Do you plan to color it or is it good as is? >>1090738
I guess we're close on that assessment! I think it would also depend on what kind of pain. Some types of pain just hit different even if we balance for intensity. Like, cuts generally hurt more than a toothache but I'd rather take the cut! Almost like sharp pain versus dull pain.
Never been to Finland but I'd love to go! It's on my list of places to visit. Where would you like to travel most?>>1090740
I am not aware of any of that and I've spent a lifetime within various feminist spaces. Even among what i have heard of the worst feminists i haven't heard most of those kinds of statements.
I'm not saying they don't exist but I feel like you should spend more time cultivating your spaces if this is your experience. I'd recommend r/WitchesVsPatriarchy as an example of what I consider the norm for feminism. https://www.reddit.com/r/WitchesVsPatriarchy/comments/obuuq8/hi_nonbinary_person_here/
And I'm not trying to trivialize or dismiss your experiences here. I believe you when you say this is what you've seen. But I truly have seen so little of that that to me, yeah, it's incredibly fringe. It's not me pretending and it would be dismissing my experiences if you go there yourself.>>1090741

In 20+ years as a feminist existing in many highly feminist spaces I've literally never once in my life heard that said and if it were someone would get thrown out the door.
That's not me saying you've never experienced it. That's me saying maybe you should reconsider saying things such as this being standard for feminism.

It's not for everyone. Usually if you're poly, you figure that out pretty quickly. In my experience the biggest barrier to entry for people is that they're not really aware being poly is a thing.
Oh wow, almost a decade! That's a long time! My longest relationship was just over 2 years, a decade is crazy to me. But that's really cool.

I don't think that it's a "somebody is wrong while somebody else is right" matter. It's perspectives due to lived lives. There are thousands of people like me, and there are thousands of people like you both.
It would be wrong to say "most feminists and most lesbians are (in)tolerant" either way. There's no Emperor of either group assigning membership cards as any random person can use either label, regardless of what precisely they do with it. I should also add that my sense of what's "common" and "standard" is naturally going to vary compared to others, so I know that I shouldn't use that sort of language at all really.
I mean the term "standard" usually refers to say, cars and video game systems plus the like, not flesh-and-blood people. Nobody is born with a user manual as to what's typical for them to think or not think. What even is a "standard person X" for any X? So, yeah, that's wrong of me.

No, it very much is a "somebody is wrong, somebody is right" matter. And you are wrong.
All you have said today has shown that your own experience is with terrible people on the internet so that is the only thing you have to go off of, and you assume that everyone else in the world is the same.
And you are wrong.

Your overly rosy and exclusive life perspective based on offline and online experiences is one thing, and my overly dark and exclusive life perspective based on offline and online experiences is another. They're both valid. That's why, say, most Americans decline to identify as "feminist" in surveys, say. Because both cultures exist.
I'm obviously not alone. Nor are you. Thousands of us are in different boats. And that's that, I guess.
I understand that you can say that it's a "fringe", but "fringe" is relative. If a block of cheese is 20% mold, then I'm not eating it. Even if we were to swap terms and talk about "well, the positive side of the cheese is batting an 0.800" or "well, the cheese got a good, solid 'B' in terms of grading" and so on. It's my own personal risk assessment based on experience. Of course, labeling a person or a group of people as "rotten" is a whole problematic thing, but I'm not doing that. Just an analogy.
At any rate, this is becoming a debate and maybe should stop soon. I guess. Don't want to corrupt the generally positive emotional vibes of the thread.
oh my god lmao
I'm literally not saying "Everything is sunshine and rainbows and you're wrong for thinking it's not"
I'm SAYING "Even though shitty people exist, there are far more good people than bad ones" and you're trying to say "no there is not"
it's LITERALLY not about my experiences being good or not, it's me saying "Things are not as bad as you think they are" and you refusing to listen.
You can keep having your negative view of lesbians if you want, but it's quite frankly tiresome seeing you talk about them like they are all terrible people. Keep it to yourself.

From my point of view, it's also quite frankly tiresome to keep hearing about a community from which active terribleness has been coming from them that's affected a lot of people personally, including me, as if it's all just positive and happy. I can also go "keep it to yourself" as far as lesbian content.
I mean... it's probably not that different than if I was for whatever reason constantly seeing threads about Donald Trump in terms of Trump social events, clubs, talking points, et cetera. I would feel the obvious desire to bring about a reality check on "okay, your perspective is valid, but not everybody is on the Trump train and others get tired of this".
The "just click away" response goes all directions. I could just click away from the Trump content. But then the Trumpian poster could just click away from my pushback. Same if we replace the words "Trump" and "Trumpian" for whatever else.
You're literally wrong though. My god, I've literally been telling you that your view of lesbians is completely incorrect, you just refuse to listen.
And no you can't just go "keep it to yourself" because you're literally being bigoted about a group of people. YOU are the only one who should shut up about it, because you are the only one being a bigot.

Yeah, I think it would be great if there was more awareness about poly relationships—not just as an option but as something healthy and fulfilling and even ideal for certain types of people!
Thanks! I only just realized it was coming up on a decade the other day. Been quite a ride! It's one of those things where you can't really remember how it was before. I sometimes wonder what it would be like to date again given that I'm such a different person than a decade ago!
Did you meet all your partners together as a group or are some or all of them unrelated to each other? If you've only been together with them for less than two years i feel like it's impressive you've grown so many bonds like that in such a short time!>>1090780

That feels familiar, the part with your friends helping you out. I'm only in tech because a friend found an opportunity for me. I really believe I'd be working retail right now if they didn't think of me at just the right moment. I'm so grateful!
Ironically though, they needed me to help them at a gig when I was transitioning out of my old job and I turned them down haha. I mean, I really did want to work together on that but I guess if you understand my current job it makes sense. There were no hard feelings, he wanted the best for my career of course.
Anyway is awesome that you've had the chance to get ahead like that! Do you feel you have made it further than you ever expected? I didn't even know if I would be able to hold a job in my teens let alone be in the kind of place i am now>>1090787
So, I agree that there's no absolutes or anything but as someone actually within the community I do kinda feel I have a level of authority to be in the right on this. I don't deny that there exists people who are shitheels who do so under the banner of feminism and lesbianism. But it's not some 50/50 deal or anything. The percent of shitty people in this group is no more than any other minority or underprivileged group.
I'm really sorry you've had such poor experiences so much to the point you've come to feel this way about feminists and lesbians in general. But, well I'd suggest you consider reevaluating some things. Doubly so because it sounds like some of your opinion is based on history and recent history has been a lot kinder towards trans people than what you might have known even a few years back.
I primarily use reddit and discord, so I don't think I can offer much outside those!>>1090790

I mean, at the risk of punching a little too hard back here, you sound very closed minded on this and unwilling to consider fresh perspective.
It's like those people who insist all non binary folk will scream you down for not guessing their pronouns correctly. If i insisted to you that that is what non binary people are, that's what the non binary community is about, how would you take that? Would it be "well, nobody is right here, we all have our personal perspectives" or would it be "hey that's not what non binary people are like or about!"

To be honest, the "you're a bigot because you're rationally afraid of having others in different circumstances express bigotry to you" kind of verbal switch is something that I don't really agree with at all.
It comes across akin to if I said something like "I'm uncomfortable with all of these posts with heavily religious references being done from the evangelical perspective because that community has been and is often, though not necessarily always or even mostly, hostile to me and others like me" being told "you're an anti-evangelical bigot".
You also keep acting as if this is some kind of a particular weird obsession that I've got rather than it being reflective of the treatment of gigantic swaths of people by other other gigantic swaths of people.
I mean... are you really surprised by this, like have you ever actually met somebody who's negative about this before?
It's as if you're an Israeli Jew finding a Palestinian Muslim and not understanding that, yes, there's going to be a worldview gap.

A decade is a long time, so it's perfectly understandable to not really be able to remember stuff from before! But seriously, that's really amazing and great. Super happy for you!
I met them all at different stages.
Actually, come to think of it, my oldest continuing relationship is now nearing 3 years because I started dating her while I was still dating my previous longest, which ended just after 2 years.
But aside from that one person, the rest kind of came about in stages. I really don't like to jump from starting one relationship to starting another really quickly, so they're spaced out by a bit of time, except for two of them which I started dating at the same time because they were already dating each other.
It honestly may seem like a short time to people on the outside looking in, but because of various internal and external reasons, time kinda is super weirdly dilated for me? Sometimes things feel like they happen super quickly and other times it feels like a month is a year, or some shit i dont really know how to explain it. Time basically is just weird for me and the fact that I have memory issues really doesn't help.
Like, for instance, I've only been dating my girlfriend that I'm planning on moving in with in the next year or so since last November, but it FEELS like we've been dating for years. That's just a small glimpse into how time feels for me, imagine what it feels like for me when it comes to people I've been dating for multiple years. I still know in my head "hey it's only been a few months/a year/whatever" but at the same time it feels like it's been forever.
I'm sure at some point if I'm still dating at least one of these people in a decade it'll start to even out, but who knows.

I appreciate as somebody who also identifies as poly the related discussion a lot!
I'm curious about two specific topics about that, but maybe I'll ask everybody instead of one person:
>Do you ever think back to when you first learned that being poly is a thing and wish that it went differently? Maybe in terms of having learned earlier? Or in another way?
>Does it feel as if you were poly forever, like me personally being in that camp, but just didn't know what to say? Or do you think that your sense of relationships has evolved as you've gotten older, which maybe is a fun journey but gets hard to explain?

I would really love to answer these questions, but I just... literally DO NOT REMEMBER the timeframe that I need to remember in order to answer them.
I KNOW that at one point I didn't know I was poly, but I don't remember how I discovered I did, or how I learned so much about it, or anything like that.
To my memory, I was always poly. Like, I may not have known what it was, but when I look back at my relationships before I started doing things poly, I could tell that I was really struggling in them. It was for a lot of different reasons, many of them unrelated to being poly, but it was one of the reasons why they didn't go well in the long run.
I just don't remember where or when I learned about being poly, or more accurately when I learned it was an acceptable thing to be, when I learned all I know about being poly and the different ways it can work, or even really what my first actual poly relationship was.

Ah, interesting! Do you have any kind of cap on future relationships? Or are you planning on taking on partners for as long as it seems to make sense? Probably the latter now that I say it cuz what's the point of picking a hard number haha
Ah I know time and memory can be a bit different because of adhd, but this is more than that? I've been thinking about myself relative to time and memory lately, coincidentally. So I'm curious if you can describe anything else interesting about your experience you haven't already covered!
The way I feel, I best describe it like I don't even have a past or a future. All I really can manage is the moment and almost nothing exists outside that. It's to the point that I don't really understand what it's like to feel certain things unless I'm currently feeling them. For instance, I love playing beat saber but unless I'm currently playing it I pretty much don't understand why I would want to play the game! It's not that I lack motivation, it's just that I lack anything but my current understanding of the moment.
If that makes sense. I'm not sure I'm even describing it well. Even basic tasks like comparing two things back to back and judging which is better is really tough for me since even that experience seconds ago feels lost to me in the moment! I think ADHDers understand this to a degree but I feel my case might be more extreme than others, maybe.>>1090821
Not really. I don't think me learning it matters, everyone else would need to!
Yep, definitely poly since forever. Even if I didn't understand that.

I honestly don't have a cap because every time I try to put some kind of limit on myself, it always ends up falling apart really quickly afterwards. So this time
going to say
there's a cap or anything like that and maybe it'll trick the universe into not throwing anything else at me.
But for real, I don't really foresee myself dating anyone else in the near future, but that could always change.
Well, there's the ADHD and the autism probably has something to do with it too, but I'm also Plural and while I don't have to worry about my headmate fronting and me losing some period of my memory, that can still fuck with your perception and experience of time in different ways.
That, plus my lifestyle causes problems. Staying up all night, sleeping for much longer than I need to, spending all my time when I'm not at work in my room, doing the same stuff every day, etc. That also doesn't help.
Oh oh oh! I totally get what you're talking about! I feel like I have the same exact issue as you're describing! It's also really hard for me to make plans for the future and actually see them through because of it. I totally get what you're saying and I can really relate!

A friend who is similar to me describes it like being the dude from Memento (if you know the movie!). Do you have any particular strategies you use to sorta fill in the gaps?>>1090829
That's pretty specific! Any plan to move there?>>1090875
Dunno if you saw but I asked you something here>>1090824>>1090890
It might be dependent on the game but I usually think of suit order as Spades, Hearts, Clubs, Diamonds. That's probably only specific to the game Spades but that's how it comes to me!
Poker is so vague haha. What kind of poker? Or has Texas hold em become synonymous with poker like Klondike has for solitaire?
Oh, what's your favorite solitaire game?
File: 1627077297542.jpg (192.53 KB, 1794x1833, 46:47, 71713.jpg) ImgOps Exif Google
I thought it went Hearts, Diamonds, Clubs and Spades? But I don't know. Maybe it does depend on the game? In poker it doesn't really matter. And yeah, guess I could be specific? I was talking about Texas hold'em.
Guess it's Klondike if that's the one that came with Windows? It's the only one I know...
How many hours of sleep do you get on a regular night?

I used to be decent at Texas hold em. Not amazing but i walked away a winner more often then not. Have you played a lot?
I think FreeCell and Spider solitaire were also there, at some point! And are much better games than Klondike
Hmm, maybe 6-7 hours. A couple weekends back slept for like 10 hours! Amazing! I get to sleep easily enough if I don't take a day nap, but when I wake up there's no getting back to sleep. So generally I can't get more than 6-7. Which I'm fine with because i never feel rested no matter how much sleep I get! >>1090902

Oh, if we do see more out of the Zootopia universe then I'd like to see more families with different species as moms and dads, just like:>
Not only would it be cute, of course, but it'd also be a great way to teach lessons about families that have mixed backgrounds in different ways! Promoting tolerance! Plus, again, seeing small anthro kids in TV and film like, well, how can you not love the adorableness?

Best flavor I guess is neapolitan
I dunno about worst, you can always make an ice cream that's worse!
Well, Zootopia 2 comes out in November so probably more certain then "if! Haha
I saw a YouTube video saying they'd have kids in the movie but I didn't watch it to see if it actually had any backing. I think it would be cool though to have more non mammalian characters! Off the top of my head I can't think of any from the first outside maybe background characters.

Yes, I've also seen news that Zootopia 2
is in production, but I'm skeptical of any particular release date (or even that it'll come out soonish at all) until there's more information, honestly. The movie industry in general seems to be in a really weird place since coronavirus because a thing. Even now with mass vaccinations.
I do hope that it comes out and is nice, though! The original film is one of my favorite flicks of all time! Really!

What makes blue ridge parkway special?>>1090916
Hmm, I don't know much about the movie industry itself so I just take them at their word on release date. I guess we'll see come November!
I don't think I'd really want additional roommates! If I did want someone it would be a person who kept things tidy and who likes board games a lot! If they could cook well that would be a plus. But I don't really know a specific person who fits the bill.
Who would you room with?>>1090919
That's the terrible thing about adhd is that structure and journals and lists can really help but being adhd means you'll never remember to use them! To a degree I'm similar. I've got more systems that have fallen out of use than I can count!
The things that have worked though help a good deal. My phone is set with lots of reminders that automatically alert me to do the things I need to do. That's not foolproof but it's something. Then, I've just mastered the technique of setting up my environment to enable the things i need doing. A really basic example, empty bottles in the shower. When I'm showering and notice empties I'll move them to the toilet or counter. That way I'll stumble on them some time later and take them the rest of the way to the bin! If not for that simple intermediate step of shifting the empty bottles the shower would be packed with them!
I do all sorts of little things like this which enable me to get shit done even when I only have myself in the moment to work with.
I dunno if any of that could work for you, but it's something to think about. I'm always trying to figure out ways to make my stupid life function haha
I think you said you were aiming to move to Texas with one of your girlfriends. Is that something you'll be able to manage soon? Or is there barriers to that? >>1090971
I've a friend who does that to me, and I've done that plenty to other people. Being on both sides of it, frankly I just feel like people get busy and distracted without that having any meaning. As long as they don't ignore me when I reach out it's all good. If someone does ignore me a few times I'll just give up on that.
I don't take it personally no matter what. It's not a me problem if someone ghosts or flakes!
Do you feel differently? >>1090975

I don't really sweat it too much, honestly. Whenever there's something I actually really need done, I get it done. Everything else would just be quality of life, and I don't feel the need to work too much on it. I'm usually in no rush, so anything that needs to get done will get done eventually.
Ah, I pretty much only have the normal issues when it comes to moving states. Moving expenses and such. I'm currently looking to probably move within the next year, preferably around the beginning of 2022, but at the very latest I hope to be all moved over by June.
I basically just have to work my job and save up enough money to pay to move my stuff and then have a good amount saved up so I don't have to rush into finding a job after moving. I should be able to save somewhere in the ballpark of 10,000 if my work scheduling stays consistent over the next year. I started my current job at the very end of May and I've already saved about 1300 (added onto the just under 2000 I had beforehand).
I also need to get my driver's license, but that's not really specifically so I can move, but just a general thing.

Winning more often than not is winning and pretty amazing. Nah, never put in enough volume to actually work out if I am any good. I have won some free tournaments with 2-400 entrants. So I must have done something right a few times at least.
I remember the spider one. Don't remember the rules though.
Sleeping 10 hours in one go is one of those rare things that are really enjoyable. 6-7 is ordinary for me too I guess. I can easily fall asleep again if I wake though, so that's nice.

Honestly, I was mostly lucky! My strategy revolved around taking big risks that nobody else would and putting the actually talented players off their game. Whatever tactic they would expect to work would not! Of course, I had enough skill to not let that be totally abused. But fundamentally, my strategy was to be lucky. If you won tournaments that big you are probably a smarter player than me! Luck only takes you so far.
6-7 is a good balance between rest and having time. Do you like getting up early enough to get things done at a slow pace or do you sleep in as late as you can? >>1091041
Cool, I saw your email. I am gonna be busy until late tonight but I'll reply soon. I probably can send things out on Monday in a flat rate box. So you might get stuff by next weekend, roughly.
As for the question, i guess it would be convenient that I'm a remote worker as I probably could keep my job so long as i could figure out how to type or dictate my work by voice. Though if i had a cats metabolism and sleep schedule that would probably be difficult in practice! I might have to retire but if I was on a cat's budget I probably could manage. So I guess live with family, explore outside and scare children, nap all day. Probably something like that.

Or hearing war tales from an air force pilot? It all could be wonderful.>>1091044
Looking forwards to hearing back from you on shipping stuff, thanks again.
Interesting, so I guess kitty life wouldn't be necessarily that difficult for you if you can continue to remotely work using voice technology. What about your social life? Would you like peeps carry you around different places? Or even walk you? I guess it might entail some loss of privacy really.
I kind of myself think that I'd really enjoy being a cat if I could have a decent voice... hmmmmmm... I probably sleep too much as a human so feline life might be not that much of a contrast, hah!

I've never lived with anyone before, so it'll be a completely new experience.
The way we do things is pretty much exactly the same as each other, so the general stuff won't change much, and it's a pretty big house. But who knows what could happen! I'm excited to finally start the next stage of my life. And also finally get away from my shitty parents.
Also my sister lives like two/three hours away in Tulsa.
I'm pretty much just gonna see what's available when I get there, hence why I need the savings to sustain me until I find something.
To be honest, I'd love to work in fast food as a dishwasher again, it was one of my favorite jobs. But it's kind of hard to get a job SPECIFICALLY doing that.
I just have to do my actual driving test and that should be it, so hopefully that gets done fast. Just kinda nervous about actually driving... and then driving alone after I get my license.

I work a job that's 99% brain power and 1% physically manipulating a computer. So assuming I could conquer the interacting with computer part and figure out how to handle video conferences then it really makes no difference what my body looks like. I mean, I don't think I'll ever need to see anyone I work with in person ever again if I don't want to.

I guess i get what you're saying in terms of luck, but there's really nothing but bad luck on my journey to this job. I made it here by colossal effort despite everything that has been stacked against me. It is a great job that's suited to me but good luck played only a very minor role.
I would enjoy almost any type of work just about as much. I love this but for the most part I just enjoy doing a great job at something and I'm not too picky about it. As long as i had a good boss and coworkers to work with and the job is ethical I'm pretty much good to go.
I'll almost certainly be doing this until I retire. I'm really good at it and it pays better than any other job i could possibly get. There's a ton of variety of things to do at this job so I'm not likely to be bored.
Also, you'd be surprised how close i could potentially be towards retirement if I set my eyes on it.>>1091124

Hmm. That could be effective as well, though I feel as if sleeping on a hard ground would possibly drive a better point home. Or I could be wrong, who knows, but if the goal is to have someone be in someone elses shoes, then I think hitting some very expansive would be the best bet. It's impossible to live every life, or walk in everyones shoes, so I'm looking for more of a good, universal symbol.

Drifting is alright, but I don't have many places I can practice safely.

That's fair! I think I'd enjoy driving if I had a course and no laws to abide. Freeway driving is basically a chore around here.
There's a lot of drives like that if you're heading into the mountains around here! I get a little too nervous to enjoy it though when often there's steep drops and few guardrails. >>1091132
Why not both dot png? Some counties require a year of service, so we have that much time minimum to whip our citizens into shape!
The toucan? Is this a real question? I would pet a shark so I think I can manage a toucan. Humans were put on this earth to pet everything.
Except jellyfish, those don't get pets.>>1091131
Umm I asked you a very important question here if it didn't see it>>1091122

I think that I've also had a combination of some good luck but also a lot of effort to get me the resume that I've had. Don't mean to, for either of us, minimize what personal determination means and has done. I'm also not too picky as well, or I don't think, and could likely go to a lot of places.
Speaking of age and retirement, do you ever find yourself thinking back to things that you used to not like when you were younger but do so now? Like types of foods? Or styles of music?
o shit so you did
Ummm, Triceratops I think. They chonk, they have horns and look cool.

Luck is one of the things I've had to think a lot about. I am terminally optimistic so i used to feel like my luck was very good. But is it really good luck if you spent years losing and falling behind through no fault of your own then finally have some scraps come your way? I try to appreciate that I was ever even given a chance, since some people never do, but overall not feeling the luck haha
I'm pretty much the polar opposite of my younger self, so I have a lot to list in this category. But I don't think too much about it, I'm just too wrapped up in the moment for journeys down memory lane!>>1091138
That's a good choice! Have you ever drawn a Triceratops?

I've evolved quite a lot from my younger years as well, yeah... taste in food has expanded, in particular, although I'm still an incredibly picky eater... music, well, I still like the same things that I did before but now have added so much to my general taste...
Have a semi-random pair of musical recommendations:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c0JKZqmQL5Uhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_zGzo-rUFEs
I have not. I have not really drawn dinosaurs or reptiles much in general, actually.
oh, btw, I have not gone back to the comic yet, but I at least sketched the horror zine illustration today.>>1091141>Pet Jellyfish>Me

Mountain driving is great. Except when there's snow. I'd need an all wheel drive car to feel a bit safer.

Nasty smells. Visual things are fine, and sometimes even interesting.
But once the smell hits me, human instinct takes over and says, "gag, gag until the smell goes away".

It's not a matter of can. You *can* pet the jellyfish. But they can't even appreciate it and I'm not gonna touch one of those forsaken things if nobody even gets anything out of it!
I'll save my underwater pets for the sharks. At least they like it.>>1091142
Considering as a kid up to young adult I wouldn't touch literally any vegetable and now I'm vegan... you could say my tastes in food has evolved over time!
First song I'm pretty into!
Second song not as much.>>1091143

Gimme a sec cooking up some food while I type this out.
I remember working a night shift at work. The Surgeon got really excited for some platelets. Well this was odd, we're a small little community hospital with naught but 93 inpatient beds. Surgeon isn't usually awake at night and she usually isn't so hungry for platelets. It's for some guy in the ER I've been watching. He seemed fine but he starts crashing. Platelets, potassium, phosphorus, crashing and white count skyrockets. I ID Staph aureus in an untreated leg wound the ER doc found, which is starting to look like necrotizing fasciitis. Finally I get in touch with the surgeon. We gotta take his leg and if we can't get it off tonight then it's gonna kill him. He's probably dead regardless. Leaving out the exciting part for us bureaucrats, they took off his leg. It finally comes to me for the pathologist to assess. It comes in a big trash bin and I just have to do my checks. Hyep. That sure is a human left leg. Smells like fresh human meat and blood, but there's another smell too. Smells like it's been rotting away on him for at least a few days. Judging by the state of the skin and the depths of the cuts the infection spread along the bone mostly. Surgeon tried to leave him a few inches of tibia and fibula to affix a decent prosthetic to, but she only got a few inches in before giving up on that one. Rot must have extended above the knee since there was another exploratory cut right above the joint, with the final amputation (real clean! She's no slouch) three or four inches above that.
That's not the gross part. That's kinda every day. The gross part is that this was what we call a "gross pathology" request. Besides the bits of meat and bone I ground up for microbiology the surgeon just wanted the basics. Which makes sense we aren't looking for cancer here. No. The gross part is that this was late Friday night and this was a long weekend. Again, we're a tiny operation and the pathologist is allowed to have a vacation too. So this leg sat in this garbage bin on the Pathologist's desk, from Friday until Wednesday. So every time I had to open her door to drop off some more paperwork or another heap of tumors, gallbladders, toes, colons, and all the other usual fare, I had this leg reminding me that it wasn't on any preservative in the delicious Florida heat, and the damn thing was already half rotten when they cut it off.
But hey. I'm not the one who has to cut strips off the thing to assess the damage to the limb. That's what they pay the good doctor to do.

No, on the basis I don't want to cook for a living. Because then it won't be as enjoyable on my free time.

Very tired. I shall pass out soon

>>1091044>But fundamentally, my strategy was to be lucky.
I mean, It's not easy to beat the person who is hitting quads on the river.
They were free to enter, I think the amount of players not caring enough means it's not very comparable to bigger tournaments. But it still felt good to win.>mornings
I usually go something like.. 10 minutes to snooze, 1 hour to get ready and 10 minutes to drive to work. It seems to work alright. How about you? Slow mornings or morning rush?

How would you rate the Finlandicity of California, on a scale of 0% (the country that is most dissimilar to Finland) to 100% (literally Finland itself)?
