Re: Arclight_Dynamo's Sports Journey

Re: Fighting in hockey, I think it gets overblown quite a bit. Hits are an essential part of the game (knocking opponent away from the puck), but fighting is usually in response to dirty plays and bad blood for egregious hits, especially if a player gets injured. It's more like an honor thing, but I...

Re: Arclight_Dynamo's Sports Journey

I can't chime in on a lot of sport, but I'd like to give my two cents about hockey. As a background, I grew up in a handegg watching house (American football). Both my parents are pretty firmly 49ers fans. I always liked the idea of sport events and team camaraderie, but find handegg super boring. A...

Re: Venting Thread Delta - Now With Easy to Follow Rules

THERE IS A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HAVING A POLITE DISCUSSION ABOUT DIFFERING OPINIONS AND BEING ABRASIVE AND TRUCULENT ABOUT DIFFERING OPINIONS.

Re: The Confession Topic: Get It Off Your Chest!

Graham: PM is fine (I get notifications), but I can also send you my email via PM.

Everyone else: Thank you, I appreciate your support.

A small follow up: This is the first weekend in a long time where I've actually felt relaxed, thank you again for letting me get this out.

Re: The Confession Topic: Get It Off Your Chest!

As Desert Bus approaches, I have to admit I'm not all that excited. Actually? I'm sick with anxiety. This has been weighing on me, like a rock in my stomach, for months, and I need to get it out. From mid-December last year to the end of May this year, I dated [removed] of the shipping crew. In my e...

Re: The depressing depression thread

I feel like I'm spiralling and there's nothing I can do. I feel like an outsider in all my circles at school. I'm the only appointed position in the GSA, and I'm not included in meetings. I'm the Masters student trying to continue into a PhD, and not looking for a job. To the PhD candidates, I'm the...

Re: Codes of Conduct

I have a lot of incoherent thoughts regarding this topic, but I think I'll point out just a couple that I think I can sort of articulate. The first is, regardless of one's intent, no one gets to decide what other people find offensive. I hope this is just a reminder, but we all must remember that wh...

Re: The depressing depression thread

I've been in a low for a little over a week and I've been trying to think if there was an obvious trigger or something. In any case, it's making me really not care about people with nice lives. I'm struggling to figure out how I'm going to acquire a better car (current one is starting to tank) and m...

So I managed to tear my calf muscle (very minor) by driving. Yup, driving too hard, apparently.

Just wanted to share this moment of silly ways to get injured.

Re: Advice Thread

Without more symptoms, we might not be able to help too much, so I have a couple questions: Are you monitoring temperatures? Are there any tells like freezing, or is it just suddenly off? I've had some sudden shut offs that my best guess was over heating, so after resetting the heat sink on my GPU, ...

Re: Venting Thread Delta - Now With Easy to Follow Rules

Someone I met recently tried to warn me about content of a video. Which I appreciate, he tried, but he tried in the most "I'm only doing this because people say I have to and not because I actually care about someone being affected by the content of this" kind of way. To quote: "oh, a...

My glasses came in! https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CojQTOeUEAAOKp7.jpg (It's a little blurry, but cool new glasses! This is actually the first time I've gotten new frames. Ever. My last frames were my only ones I'd had since I first got glasses, when I was 15. 11 years, time for a change.)

Gotta say, that is exactly the thing I was talking about, except it's right rear. But the nice part about old Volvos is the enthusiasts, so there's tons of online resources with step by step instructions on repairing just about anything on those monsters. I have a long list of random things I've fix...

Dutch guy I'm 100% feeling your pain. I love my '91 Volvo 240 but this is two summers in a row I'm dropping a grand on fixing big things. The front of my brain says I need a "new" car (like '05-'10 Camry), but the back of my brain loves this car and is like "once we replace all this b...

In commiseration with car problems... My brake failure light came on, scheduled appt for place in the next city over, expecting a 3hr, $200 brake job and some mall time (place is next to the mall).
