What did you do today?


Recommended Posts

Well, I was studying computer science in Austria/Vienna to achieve my dream of working in the gaming industry. Things were going according to plan until -in the 2nd year- I found out that mom was diagnosed with cancer. I came back to Tehran(2011) and stayed there until mom passed away in 2013.

 

I helped my older brother pay his debts back in Austria before I came to Tehran. How? By working my ass off at a burger joint for 6 euros an hour, 11am till 11:30pm every weekend, no tip money, all of this whilst studying of course.

 

I also helped my younger brother get the hell out of this country back in 2014.

 

I myself decided to stay home and after mom passed away, I inherited enough money from her to buy myself an apartment with.

Sorry about your mom. :( Mine died the same way when I was 17.

 

 

Does Iran have annual property taxes?

Sorry to hear that. Losing loved ones is awful.

 

No, Iran does not have any annual property taxes. Once you buy a property, it's pretty much yours. There is a house built near the park in front of my house. The government made many attempts to drive the owners out and make the park bigger but in the end, they couldn't.

 

People aren't powerless against the government here, but fact is, that because they have participated in a revolution once(and failed miserably at it) they are wary of any kind of change, otherwise you'd be surprised to know that how much the average Iranian hates the government.

 

I couldn't even connect to certain people back in my youth because they would automatically connect me to the government since my father was a diplomat back in the days.

 

Funny how the stronger and more influential people are always immune to this problem in Iran.

 

This world is one big reality tv-show.

Actually yeah. I thought Friskies came from here. Don't worry Katphood, if things actually get bad we'll send you some. LOL, I'm sure the DHS would LOVE to know why I'm sending cat food to Tehran. Almost worth it to provoke that confrontation.

It'd be interesting to see Katphood explain why he's recieving hundreds of pounds of catfood from all around the world.

 

...

it'd be totes lulzy :p

 

When you wrote about Friskies origins I had to look it up myself, and I wasn't even a little bit surprised that Nestle owned them. I wonder what brand of food they don't own by now.

Doubled down with the bike groups today and put in a nice 40 miles. My legs felt good, so I decided to run a couple miles when I got home. Now I am contemplating a nap. :)

i heard of someone who decided to troll the scammers and ended up finding that it wasn't a scam and there really was a huge inheritance in his name

talk about taking a blind shot and hitting the bullseye.

The words freedom and liberty, are diminishing the true meaning of the abstract concept they try to explain. The true nature of freedom is such, that the human mind is unable to comprehend it, so we make a cage and name it freedom in order to give a tangible meaning to what we dont understand, just as our ancestors made gods like Thor or Zeus to explain thunder.

What? You thought it was a quote from some well known wise guy from the past?

 

Stupidity leads to willful ignorance - willful ignorance leads to hope - hope leads to sex - and that is how a new generation of fools is born!


We are hardcore role players... When we go to bed with a girl, we roll a D20 to see if we hit the target and a D6 to see how much penetration damage we did.

I'd say the answer to that question is kind of like the answer to "who's the sucker in this poker game?"*

We all alt down here.  You'll alt too.

 

RE: Friskies, was originally a Carnation company.  Bought by Nestle, then moved the dog/cat food over to Purina when they bought/merged with them.  Megaconglomerates FTW!

Hubby decided he doesn't like the new van and is returning it. No comment.

 

I'm still in my apathy-mode. Haven't washed my hair in a week. Still slouching around, FF-ing through Korean day-dramas between naps. I think I sat outside briefly yesterday but I'm not sure. It's all a blur.

I did attempt to break lethargy a bit by installing a new WordPress subdomain for FFXV screenshot blogging (since I hate tumblr etc). Dunno if I'll actually use it or just uninstall it again. :p WordPress sure has changed a lot since 7 years ago. Still the easiest but the premade theme concept has become really commercial (and harder for me to figure out how to slightly reconfigure them) even for simple pic-posting themes. Can't be bothered to create my own style/look from scratch these days however so whatever.

Have you tried going somewhere else, a change of scenery is good. Maybe go to a park and read a book or have lunch somewhere.

Try opening up some window and walking around the house or doing some light stretching. I know those days all too well.

So, recreational cannabis?

 

Doubtful that would get her of her couch... :p

Actually, I've been thinking of quitting pot but I am not sure if that's a good thing for someone like me who is supposed to stay at home, because to me, my current mental condition is beyond repair and I simply cannot interact much with people.

 

Quitting it ain't a big problem but once I get of the couch there ain't much to do besides grooming(be it the house or the cats). Maybe I should start reading something...nah, reading is for nerds!
