They are putting me under for it.  I am old and it is a bit of a complicated procedure.  It is a 3-day weekend, so I don't have to go back to work until Tuesday.

 

Check your zipper before they put you under and then again when you come to, if you're able

 

Something about anesthesia makes your fly open up... or maybe that's just me :ermm:

I want to share something with you guys just so you can understand some of the SJ debates and challengers people like me who as white South Africans are  committed to the multiracial economic transformation of the country have to grapple with . I'm not complaining but this article is from a relatively new group of young disillusioned black South Africans "intellectuals " who are determined to rediscover black consciousness in South Africa and have decided that white people are the reason for all the lack of achievement in black culture. This type of thing doesn't annoy or anger me ...its just misplaced. Try to read it if you are able

Bruce one of the top 10 reasons why the world is a f----d up place is most folks genuinely think that if they're life is a mess it must be someone else's' fault. It's not the #1 reason but it is definitely in the top 10.

 

And nearly everyone who thinks that is wrong.

You right, for me I want to understand how this group of black South Africans could have become so bitter that they seem to believe that white people are still repressing them and treating them like slaves ? Its a failure of our transformation and it disappoints me

Interesting, I phoned in on this typically black talk show and asked the Talk Show host who I know is very pro black consciousness about that website and why they feel the need to say " I don't like white people " ...she actually knows the two editors who made all these anti-white articles. She actually defended it and said " whats wrong with saying I don't like white people " ...I told her  " well how can you say you dont like a whole racial group " 

 

Anyway it appeared she is okay to say that. I''ll be continuing to challenge that websites view....I don't care what they think. Racism is racism even if its not the same from black people. I am surprised that there black people who seem so militant but thats fine, I wont take offense

Paid bills. I'm enjoying my new less than half of what I paid before phone bill but I really need to find a way to reduce my cable bill. Problem is that I don't have any other options where I live because Centurylink's website doesn't even work half the time and the speeds they offer are decent for about 10 years ago so I'm stuck with Comcast. 

 

Complain, complain

Working out a plan to redecorate the loft in my house. My wife and I have an agreement. The rest of the house is her territory. Her design choices are law. But it stops at the stairs. When I had this place built I picked this floor plan specifically for the loft. It's my office, my sanctuary. It's got the big window looking out down the hill towards the creek. A built a big desk in the room (meaning it AIN'T moving). But other than that I never did much with it. Just a few bookshelves over loaded with books. I have too many books, thousands I'd think. Boxes in the closet, boxes in the loft. I had an idea to build bookshelves right into the wall up here. Ceiling to floor, corner to corner. It would look like a library then.

You're reminding me of why I made the switch to ebooks...that, and I loathe the feeling of paper. :p

Got a kindle with a lot of stuff on it too!

 That's weird actually ..I try not to sound rude to people on forums  but not liking the feeling of paper goes against everything that people say about this topic . People who are traditional readers always prefer the tactile experience of a book but we all use eBooks for convenient sake

I have despised the feeling of paper since I was a child. Nevertheless, I've always been an avid reader...so ebooks, whether I'm reading them on a tablet or on my desktop (I actually prefer reading ebooks on my desktop over all other devices), are quite the blessing for me.

 

Paper, whether it's regular sheet paper, card board, tissue paper, or whatever else...is a horrid feeling thing. If I could avoid touching the stuff for the rest of my life, that would be great. :)

Sure, I believe you but I was being honest when I said  thats not the normal response :)

I also can't stand anything chalk-y feeling, anything fuzzy, anything satin-y-feeling, or anything microfiber-y. Life's tough when you're Bartimaeus. :p

Its good to be different ...I am very different, eccentric actually  ;)

Oh, so just a freak then, not a heretic. Carry on. I like my Kindle, being able to increase the font size is good for people with awful eyesight like myself, but I do enjoy the convenience of a regular book.

Was joking, but yes, I understand that kind of reaction to a sensory input. Certain colours irritate me for example, those shiny colours - electric or something? - do that for me.

I'm  sorry another weird person  :p Nothing physical or visual irritates me...but I tend to over-analyze things which can be vexing in its own way

Ordered a log bar aka Swiss bar, the hammer grip is better and healthier for the shoulder, and more weight can be pressed when doing heavy shoulder presses. 

 

Looks like this:
