    Before I'm allowed to get advisement, I'm now caught in a never ending online thing about relationships, preventing sexual assault, blah blah blah. I can see this stuff for a bunch of horny kids, but I'm in my mid 40's. I'm probably older than many professors. I have offspring older than many of who will be my fellow students. There will be no hanging out. There will be work to be done. Hopefully as little as possible will be where I have to interact much with these kids. I did this when I was in my 30's for a few years, getting an Associate's degree. The rest of the student body kinda found me to be old & did their own thing. Where is the "I'm too old for this shit" button?

    I don't drink, I don't look at ANY girls if I don't have to. They prefer life via phone.

    Yeah sexual assault and alcohol accuse are huge problems colleges need to address... But yeah it's kinda of silly for some of us. I'm trying to get financial aid but I didn't sign up for selective service as a youth...

    Irony: All the old people that show up at town meetings to oppose the evil weed being sold in their town, then go home, pull out their half gallon sized bottles and drink their gin and tonics and scotch and sodas until they reach their nightly pickling.

    Damn this is crazy accurate. Down to the choice of drink and size of Bombay container. Only thing you left out is they usually carry around 2 or 3 of those giant bottles at a time.

    And don't forget the late show entertainment when Daddy beats up Mommy and the kids block their ears and scream to try and make everything go away.

    Thinking out loud without any proof.
    I started using the WiFi through Comcast (xfiniy) now every time my computer starts using my Belkin router I start having problems navigating online. Then I go to settings and switch it back to Comcast WiFi then I have no problems. I think that they want me to use their internet system so they can keep track where I go online. :2c:I think they are screwing with my personal router.:bang:

    Just FYI, both your ethernet (wired) and wireless connections go through your router. You could install the Tor browser to hide where you go if it is a concern.

    probably neither here nor there but my ethernet runs from my modem and wifi through my router that's also connected to the modem.

    I've a couple friends who keep touting the need for a Tor when running bit-torrent but even though they use a Tor I still see their IP listed when checking the peer list so now I'm not even sure what a Tor browser really does for you.

    Are you sure you see "their IP" and not the IP of the last TOR node?

    Yeah it's their IP. Someone who knows a lot more about it than I do pointed it out to them one day using my computer when they wanted to argue that a TOR would always keep them anonymous one night as their computers were a block away seeding a few torrents. They freaked out when they took a look at the peer list.

    I actually wouldn't have know my own IP address if it popped up never-mind someone else's if they weren't pointed out to me.

    No matter how old I get, occasionally I put my foot in my mouth. Someone I didn’t really know that well sometimes works in the building where I work. I had been noticing that she looked to be pregnant to me. The rest of her body was slender but her stomach looked to be 5 months pregnant. Wrong! I asked her when her baby was due. She said she wasn’t pregnant. She took it well. I’m glad I didn’t say it any louder than I did. I apologized and felt terrible.

    I promised myself I will never ask a woman when her baby is due unless I know for a fact that she is pregnant. I still feel terrible. :ugh: I’m glad I didn’t see her today.

    I almost put this in the Fuck You to me in the “Fuck You” section in the FC lounge.

    This is why I decided upon a "DON'T ASK" rule for myself in these situations. Even if I am 99.9999% sure & she looks like she's due that day, I remain mum.

    Though at the same time, I've had that go in the complete opposite direction & be judged for not saying anything; we just can't win dammit!!!!

    Today's remedy for the common cold: rest, toast and an espresso, a little later a nice green tea, and of course the e-nano.

    Not expresso, ginger ale; since a kid it was always mom giving you GA. Well, at least when ginger ale was made w/ real ginger & didn't have any high fructose corn syrup in it & artificial flavors. How I wish I was in the EU where HFC is band & real sugar is used is soft drinks. Our FDA & USDA doesn't give a fuck about our health. :rant:

    Just saw one of those signs sponsoring a section of road and it was by a local dispensary. Wished I could have sent that visual to myself 45 years earlier.

    I used to wish I had been born 10 years earlier so I could have spent my teens in the 60's instead of the 70's. Now I'm ecstatic to experience this new Cannabis Golden Era. :clap:

    So I JUST found out that my college is giving me financial aid for college despite a mistake from my youth. I go back and forth from "I'm good, this is all happening" to "oh fuck something is going to go wrong there's still so much to do!"

    At this point I'm waiting to hear what type of financial aid package they are offering me. Meanwhile I start school in two days. I'm dropping down to part time at work and I'm an unmarried adult, so I will need some help. I know I'll need to take out some loans, too. Man that was a weight off my shoulders! Just being approved for financial aid opens me up to scholarships, too. I doubt I'll be able to jump on that for this semester, but the way things are coming together for me, I don't need to be freaking out. Higher education, here I come. Man, I need to chill a little bit. Time to vape another bowl.

    Just shot off a few emails to my representative about all the BS. What the hell is going on? Yes a president can change the way our country works and what we hold dear in life. I needed to vent. I will say no more.:science:

    On this day where our President "shall from time to time give to the Congress Information of the State of the Union, and recommend to their Consideration such measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient", let us remember the great President Camacho and reflect the movie was not a joke on him but on those who elected him.

    wouldn't it be cool if there was a "Fuck" button instead of a "Like" button? ie for "reacting" to that.. "electric pipe" post. Fuck, that's just.. lame. Fuck

    could also be positive. see it's more general
