Re: Studying Abroad - What Am I Forgetting?

On phones. This is Australian things, so potentially COMPLETELY different to the US and Ireland. But, if you got your phone through a plan and didn't buy it out right, chances are it's network locked. My broken brick that's a poorly functioning MP3 player at this point for instance, is permanantly l...

Re: Studying Abroad - What Am I Forgetting?

Interesting. I coulda sworn a bunch of the world had adopted 911 to cater to the lowest American denominator, guess I was wrong. I kinda wanna try dialing 911 now, but A: My phone doesn't work, B: I have an important appointment in a couple hours and getting arrested for bullhit emergency calls woul...

Re: Studying Abroad - What Am I Forgetting?

I'm pretty sure most countries have adopted 911 and our 000 for emergencies. Not positive but I think I read that somewhere.

Re: Studying Abroad - What Am I Forgetting?

I can't remember where I heard this, or if it was advice, or a saying or a movie quote, but. "It's never a problem when the big things stop working. It's when the little things we take for granted stop that everything goes to hell." Seems pretty appropriate here. You're smart enough that I...

Re: The Mixed Emotion Thread

Well, in 10hours 15minutes I have my appointment with housing services. On the one hand, they have to help me right? I mean, if they don't come the end of the month I'm basically fucked. On the other, what if they don't, what if they do but it's yet another temporary solution. I'm both so eager, and...

Re: The depressing depression thread

You aren't responsible for things you had no control over. Simple as that. It's definitely easier for me to say, because I've spent the last few years being blamed for not being healthy, like I somehow chose to have Ulcerative Colitis. But it's really true. If your parents chose to have you for thos...

My dad's the worst kind of person. Spent years saying how he wants a relationship with me, saying he sympathizes with the way I'm treated, offering no help but plenty of excuses why he can't... And then turns out he just doesn't have the spine to have said what he thinks to my face until now. I'd ha...

Oh I'm with you there. I was just commenting on the fact it's a much easier rule of thumb when using this measurement system. All that said, I'm the guy who just brought 15 cans (8ltrs) of Energy drink and expect it to be gone in 4 days. So. I washed all my clothes on "very hot" on Monday....

Eh, close enough works for me. Reading it, I realized I already figured (But never thought about/acknowledged) that the 1ltr bottle of cola is probably heavier than the 1ltr bottle of water.

Prospero, because the show is set during the modern day. You know, the day when American politics boils down to "FUCK YOU I LIKE MY GUNS, MY GOD AND HATE THE GAYS!" vs "FUCK YOU, YOU'RE A JACKASS, GIVE PEOPLE HEALTHCARE!" It's very much playing on our current world political clim...

Re: LRRcast - Spoilers Part 2

So, interesting. BIG X-FILES SPOILERS AHEAD... Maybe. I decided this morning to download the X-Files since I'm out of things to watch, and I'd rather spend the 25gb on like, 6000000000 episodes of the x-files than anything else. It's weird. One of the opening scenes is of Scully being recruited to t...

All I have to say, is I'm stealing your description of Anxiety. I only suffer attacks, not in general, and I always struggled to describe it in a relatable way.

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

Not particularly, without glasses I often can't tell if I typed "i" or "l" and on a phone, that's a mistake I can make. So I'm at the risk of making much bigger ones... You know, if my phone worked as anything more than an mp3 player (When it wants to.) nowdays.

Hey man, I get you on that. I don't know if mine's as bad, but for me to go chill out with a friend, it's a 15minute bus ride to the station then a 35minute train then a 25minute walk to his place. And his SO entered pre-labour last night, so that's not something that will happen much any more. Next...
