OK, where's the "what might drive you totally batfuckingshit Insane but there's a small chance it might be useful so you can't totally deep 666 it?" thread?

Unleash them, they are adults now........

OK, I know this isn't my first rodeo and it seems maybe I'm almost unique in that.....but I swear I wasn't like this two years ago and wouldn't have been even if there was such a forum.....

"ooh here's a great website that says you don't need to buy EVERYTHING on the dorm supply suggested list, unlike the elementary school supply list"
"Oh wow, great find ....but I'm still going to buy everything, even though my son doesn't want me to......"

3) sweet baby cheesewhizzz, did you adopt him?

I wonder how many helicopter parents would admit to feeling neglected by their own parents when they were children?

Monster, remember people look at things from a different perspective according to their background.
Not everyone who disagrees with you (this is important) needs killin'.

You need to go into the past and not have done that. They will make you crazier than they are making their kids.

here I go quoting myself again. Someone actually wrote pretty much this in the forum and all hell has broken loose

I've sleeping w/the stereo on just barely loud enough to hear for over a year now.

This morning around daylight I was lying there, trying not to get up, and successfully predicted the next song on the radio. Twice. Within ten minutes.

The first one was Back In Black, then I predicted Whole Lotta Love a couple songs later.

I can tell when my ex is stressed out by something because she gets shittier and more passive-aggressive than usual.

Got a text the other day that said: "Hi darling lover, do you have any photos of xyz..." At first I was wondering who it came from and why they thought I had photos of xyz, then I saw who it was from and I realized she 'accidentally' sent me a text meant for her BF.

Really? It's like that now?

I was once getting unwanted emails from someone I knew. They were being sent from the person's workplace. Rather than just deleting them, I moved them to the Junk email folder. That trains the ISP's Junk filters to recognize emails from that origin as spam and weed them out. I subsequently heard it through the grapevine that the person was having problems getting business emails through to customers. I wonder how that could have happened? I didn't hear from them anymore.

What's mildly irritating you today?

Wrens. Right outside the living room window.

How can so much sound (I started to call it noise, but, it's not quite noise, yet) come out of such a small package?

I was cleaning some wine glasses that got dirty because they are in a kitchen cabinet I built but haven't yet made the glass panel doors so they tend to pick up cooking grease fumes and get dirty. With company coming next week I figured I would clean them. I was scrubbing one out and actually thought to myself that I might be pushing a bit hard on the thin glass when BANG! the glass broke with my hand inside. Got a nasty gash on my pinky finger. I washed it well and it bled like a MF but I eventually got it bandaged and I guess I'll check it in the morning.

Why is it that band aid packaging is so fucking hard to open. I mean half the time you are doing it with a bleeding body part and are one handed. Crazy.

To encourage you to get someone else to apply it so you don't contaminate the pad while flopping the band aid around with one hand.
