everything. I had the love of my life die in my arms in a hospital in Chicago this month 8 years ago. Every year her parents and her brother remind me of her. Every year it kills me slowly for a month. This year the feeling is compounded because I thought I was mixing up my feelings for someone I had just met with the girl who died, so in order to figure it out..I left. I went to Florida for a week with a friend of mine. When I came back I felt okay, I felt like I had let go of some demons. Before I left, I gave the girl my email and she never emailed so I figured she didnt care or really want me that much. Tonight she says I hurt her and that it was free will and she wanted to be chased. To me that sounds like a cop out, but even if it was, I felt something for her and now I feel like a fool again. I hate August, I'll be glad when its over.

Basically, what pisses me off at it's core, is that I work my ass off as a productive member of society, and I'll not only end up not getting the place I want, but I'll be partially paying for someone else to live there, and pay more for an apartment that was my 3rd or 4th choice that's farther away from my prime location.

The sad part is that this will never end, because there will always be people who would rather suckle the government teat that pays them better than a minimum wage job. Which is understandable, but begs the question, why isn't minimum wage on a sliding scale? But like that would matter because then employers would discriminate based on family situations that would force them to pay higher hourly wages, then forcing the common worker to lie about his situation in order to get the job that won't pay him enough.

BAHHHHHH...... I hate the world...
It sucks, yes, but it's part of the social contract. There's a lot of people out there who actually NEED government help - because honestly, minimum wage (even when it's at a 'reasonable' level like in Canada), isn't enough to live on if one expects a half-decent life. Yes, it should be on a sliding scale, but if they had figured how a formula that worked, it would have been employed ages ago, no?
And yes, there's the ones who just profit on the system. But hey, assholes are everywhere. You just have to deal.

But either way, on the bright side - You're well off, and will probably never be put in the situation of needing government assistance or working for minimum wage. That's something to be thankful about! And I'm certain you'll find another decent place to live in a nice part of town.

I dunno...I suppose it's good to have some low income housing available, but the way they do it is just BS. With my shitty stipend + high tuition + high cost of living in Toronto, I've been living around the poverty line for ~5 years - if you have half a brain, you can stretch the cash pretty easily. I just remember that, when I lived in a dilapidated little shithole that cost $900/mth, across the street there was an awesome looking house that was practically a mansion...yeah, that was the low income house. WTF? Eventually, I'm going to finish my PhD and get a real job, and I really don't like the idea of supporting all kinds of freeloaders, when there was no support for me when I was in the same position (and I'm not exactly ASKING for support, either).

No, of course I understand, and there are a lot of freeloaders. But thre are lots of people who actually need that help - and yes, maybe it becomes a little unfair if they're living in a beautiful place and you have an overpriced shithole (come see my place, sometime!). I'm a little against the usual "Poor people are bullshit! The homeless are the leeches of society! Governments enable them!" Yes, they're there. But... lots actually need it.

Ah Zowie, you know this is a cyclical conversation. We're going to have to agree to (somewhat) disagree.

And I would love to come see your place if I get the opportunity!

You should! I'll let you sleep on my -possibly- infested couch and meet my hilariously grungy roommate.

And then we'll go get coffee with Surly.

Hahaha, we have wolf-spiders all over the place.

Centipedes... I wouldn't be able to deal with. No creepy crawlies, thank you.

Centipedes? Wolf spiders?!

We just found out a couple days ago that our landlord has decided not to honor our verbal agreement to stay in the building for another month. We have one week untl we have to be out....

So our small IT department gets to play musical chairs with hundreds of servers so we can keep business going with as little downtime as possible. I'm on day 2 of this crap and cannot wait to be done with it so I can drink myself into a stupor and hopefully erase the memories of it happening in the first place!

PS: Haven't been on here in a while, hope everyone is doing well!

Prepping for the hurricane, still fairly certain my apartment is going to flood, if only partially. Bought a trench spade to combat it by digging quick drainage ditches away from my apartment but, it may not allow me to do anything worthwhile depending on conditions.

There's a voluntary evacuation planned for the area, but nothing mandatory yet. I've opted to ride out the storm with the supplies I purchased today.

Sand bags, flashlights, D-batteries, and radios have been picked clean. The line for sandbags at the beach was too long to bother trying to stockpile any and evacuations are already taking place along the beachfront coastline to bother trying.

Sad today, going to be sadder tomorrow, and then really sad come Sunday.

I Know people in NYC too that have opted to ride out the storm with food, books, and water. I don't completely agree with that decision, but it's their call so...

I hope the meds work out and your kitty cat gets healed without surgery.

I read some more about it. Apparently its the host cell that it goes after. "The drug works by targeting a type of RNA produced only in cells that have been infected by viruses. "In theory, it should work against all viruses," says Todd Rider, a senior staff scientist in MIT's Lincoln Laboratory's Chemical, Biological, and Nanoscale Technologies Group who invented the new technology."

Prepping for the hurricane, still fairly certain my apartment is going to flood, if only partially. Bought a trench spade to combat it by digging quick drainage ditches away from my apartment but, it may not allow me to do anything worthwhile depending on conditions.

There's a voluntary evacuation planned for the area, but nothing mandatory yet. I've opted to ride out the storm with the supplies I purchased today.

Sand bags, flashlights, D-batteries, and radios have been picked clean. The line for sandbags at the beach was too long to bother trying to stockpile any and evacuations are already taking place along the beachfront coastline to bother trying.

Sad today, going to be sadder tomorrow, and then really sad come Sunday.

I Know people in NYC too that have opted to ride out the storm with food, books, and water. I don't completely agree with that decision, but it's their call so...
i'm in south jersey and my area is flooding already and we haven't even hit the biggest parts yet. we are suppose to get anywhere from 10-17 inches of rain lol. i got my beer and pizza and even bought a new ps3 game for this weekend to keep me busy. hopefully power don't go out but if it does it looks like it's gonna be some dark risk playing with the nephews lol. best time killer ever

Yeah it's not looking good here right now and my backyard is already starting to flood, as long as it gets over into the drainage ditch it won't be so bad but... shit I don't know.

10pm is supposed to bring the pain.

Worried about the people I care about and it annoys me I can't do a thing to help them out.

Had to LOL at a friend of mine though

Lorrai: Yeah, we're screwed.
Feyre: Just chain your trailer down, add a few sealed up, empty barrels and tires to it?
Lorrai: You mean the redneck arc?
Feyre: XD Good way of putting it
Lorrai: And any fucking hippy trying to hitch a ride meets the barrel of my shotgun D<

Default First Computer Virus

I have a virus on my computer. It started with Security Protection Scareware locking my computer down. I was able to get that removed. Now it does intermittent Google redirects. I've run malwarebytes and tdsskiller, chosen a previral restore point, and have spent a significant amount of time on Bleeping computer.

The really sad part: I have McAfee Antivirus, and Siteadvisor. The site I was on was greenlighted, and it wasn't even porn (for once).
