Cool, right?

Oooh, interesting idea.

I learnt that there are people I know offline who also love video game music despite it being outrageously geeky.
I also learnt that midori and lemonade is tasty :)

Anyway, I learned that not sleeping all weekend, and then staying up way past bedtime to roleplay in person with people for hours, will make you wake up the next morning early, and with a staggering headache.  It's like getting drunk, except...not.

no, no they can't.
it's an unspoken rule.
black IS a subculture.

well, at least in TN it is.





but on a serious note, my friend joseph is black and at one point, nauseatingly scene.




and yet another and slightly less serious note: I learned that it takes more than one joint to get me high. Well, as high as I like to be.

Oh ho ho!  I see your sarcasm, and raise you the fact that Black cannot be a subculture, because I said so.  Now Black Jews are a subculture, and that makes me a sub.  I'm a sub.  I like to be on the bottom of the prosperity ladder.  Those racist Jews let me in, but won't tell me where the fucking Jew Gold is.  =\

Seriously, young Shadowboxers looking for a career path:
-plumbing
-electrician
-brickmason
-carpenter

These jobs allow security, good pay, flexible hours (and really good pay if you are willing
to work odd hours, holidays &c.), and they're not so vulnerable to "outsourcing" as many
other jobs.  Something to think about.....

That's an interesting thought, knowing that there is people out there who feel empty whithout having a crush on someone so they force themselves to have a crush on someone but as soon as a real "crush" appears they would totally ignore the obligated crush just because it didn't matter.

I don't understand why people feel attracted to other people, why can't people just live alone, I mean sure have sex just to preserve the specie, it would be "easier" that way & if we didn't know about love, relationships & stuff we wouldn't miss them, same thing happens with all the things we may not know ... we can't miss them because we don't know them ...

Back in April 28 I was so wise ... now my mind is toasted ...

But again, shit seriously, love is such a strange thing and it is even weirder for someone with as many insecurities as me, damn I can't picture me being damn happy with someone, I just can't imagine that someone being happy with a person like me & if there is one then I might not be interested, 'cause you know (I am too damn picky) that person might exist and she might want to know you better & stuff but if you don't want to know her & talk to her & all that shit nothing will ever happen but a regular friends-relationship. Maybe that's what happens to me with some girls, I am damn interested but they are not interested in such things at least not with me, therefore they don't bother to pay attention but to the regular friends-relationship & I can't blame them if I am doing the same sometimes.

Friday was a weird day, I saw the girl I like, came to realize how perfect she is & stuff (all the oh-I-am-in-love thoughts one have at the moment) but realized I would NEVER be able to get into something serious with her; I talk to her, we enjoy talking a lot we are good friends but ... seriously that shit would never happen, I felt like shit, then analyzed the situation & blamed myself, I dissapointed me because of how I behave. A friend told me it was because sometimes I would appear to be a bit unfriendly to people ... but being unfriendly to almost everyone is big part of my behavior, if I would change that I would be spitting at my own face.

Seriously seeing what you want but knowing it's impossible is the worst feeling I have felt.

There are many things you should keep away from your vag. Including (but not limited to) bees, sandpaper, rusty nails, your 8th grade maths teacher, superglue, naked flame, gerbils and bubblegum.
Okay, quick...  Think of perfectly reasonable ways that each of these things.....    ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D :o

Unless the designated mobile collector decides to prank the collectee by sending out obscene/embarrassing messages.

We have that in common!

I have like two real friends and I have to worry about making them feel smothered since they are a couple who are super engrossed in one another and they don't always have time for their loser friend me  :'(

I all but annihilated my social life while I was schizophrenic and although I've received effective treatment since then I just don't know how to fix it...

But I knew this for a while and can't list it as something I just learned today...

So I was looking around the room... trying to think of something to post here when all of a sudden I found two unopened cheap looking porno DVD's that where in my closet along with my actual DVD's.  I knew I was absent minded but apparently I am so absent minded I can find stuff like that and completely forget about how I acquired them...

Aww. No one's ever thought that before. :) My accent's always been in some weird limbo between posh english, common brighton accent and a northern one. It changes alot depending on who I'm talking to, though at home and at work my Brightonian accent gets really strong and I drop lots of constanants and pronouns. I sound quite queen's english in that video, probably because I'm really conscious of not singing in an american accent as that's how I know the song.

I want to hear everyone's voices as, in my head, excluding Indie's posts because she uses lots of english slang and references, I read most of this forum in an american accent. I intend to exploit the accent thread thouroughly in this capacity tomorrow. Sleepy time now though :)

I learned that I have this weird view of all things gay/lesbian. Because there's nothing gay-related near me, it seems like it's this...almost mythical society. There just isn't anything within at least an hour radius of me. So when I find something on the web or in "real-life" that's LGBT-related, I jump on that shite.

For example, I had no interest whatsoever in going to the church youth group. But, I found out that the person who runs it is my favorite person at the church...I'm 90% sure she's gay. Therefore, I have a peer...kind of...

Also, (obviously) I'm into the L Word. And I just found FlawLes TV, which is ok. But I'm still addicted, ha. These things suck, though, because I can't watch many videos on my internet without it cutting off  :violent1:.

All of this is pretty tricky, because some family and most of my friends don't know I'm gay...so I have to be sneaky.

Wow, that turned into a long rant. Sorry.

For example, I had no interest whatsoever in going to the church youth group. But, I found out that the person who runs it is my favorite person at the church...I'm 90% sure she's gay. Therefore, I have a peer...kind of...

Also, (obviously) I'm into the L Word. And I just found FlawLes TV, which is ok. But I'm still addicted, ha. These things suck, though, because I can't watch many videos on my internet without it cutting off  :violent1:.

All of this is pretty tricky, because some family and most of my friends don't know I'm gay...so I have to be sneaky.

Wow, that turned into a long rant. Sorry.

I understand where you are coming from because I got lesbian friends and watched every single episode of the L word at least once but have zero connection to gay men...

Anyway, as of now I've decided I should at least give it a try. Got nothin' to lose I guess.

Today ive learned that laundrettes are time consuming, but very relaxing (until you have to drag washing out of machines, put it in tumble dryers and fold it once its finished) - giving you a great chance to reflect on general life!
...and/or catch up on your reading...

I did some of that too, whilst listening to some good songs!
They are actually brilliant places..

i learned that having dinner by yourself in your room sucks when your dad is downstairs, waiting to have dinner until his girlfriend (who lives with us) gets here. i have to have dinner at 6.30 (ehm long story but i just have to, i can't change that) but at that time she's making dinner for her kids (at their house, so she's here around 7.45). i don't understand why she can't just eat with her kids so that i can have dinner with my dad instead of alone. if it's just one night, okay. but it's happened before she lived here several times (she moved in this week) and now it looks like it's going to be like this on most nights. now don't get me wrong, i don't mind having dinner alone. that is, i don't mind it when i'm home alone, or out somewhere by myself. but when i'm told that i can have dinner in my room because i'm gonna have to eat alone anyways, that's not fun at all.

at least dinner tasted good.

Pshyah, 16's well old enough. Chelax. He doesn't sound like a mad drugs baron. For this, I feel you need the perspective of someone for whome drugs are NOT just drugs - you may well feel the same after hearing it, but might be worth hearing. For me, the sheer vastness of the variety in drugs, drug users, drug sellers and, heaven forbid, drug pushers, means that you have to look at each one individually - a kid growing weed in his back room is NOT the same as a kid importing vast quantities of crack via foreign sex workers and then killing them.

The congressman referred to is, if I understand correctly, taking steps to prevent state agencies from
either squeezing poor families for money, or leaving them only meal choices that are nutritionally inadequate,
and which would likely subject children to peer-abuse. 

Thus, "fuck him" would be an inappropriate response. (I mean, unless you wanted to get him a hooker by way of saying "good job!")

that people are very finnicky when it comes to omelets.

example: someone ordered a veggie omelet but also wanted ham in it. no prob. we can do that. send the order out. it comes back. apparently, they didn't want ham because they're vegetarian. so why would you order ham if you couldn't really eat it? maybe they thought we had those meat substitutes that some other places do. but we don't, or at least not to my knowledge.

also, people need to learn to chill the hell out. some guy came up to the server's area/window today and wanted to return an order because it wasn't cooked to his liking. he couldn't sit and flag down a waiter, because oh gosh no, that would've been too much trouble.

and finally, people are very picky with toast. like, for example, an order comes in and it says "well dry 7"  (which translates to well done, dry 7 grain toast). i'll put two pieces in the toaster on a setting that will make them dark, but not exactly burnt, but dark enough. send them out. have them returned within minutes because they were either not dark enough or too dark.

maybe because you are pretty an most of them aren´t thaaat friend and always wanted to be more than friends. I can´t talk about me as a general case, since I was always more introspective and shy. so, I used to try to get closer to the girls, feel more confortable and etc before trying something. the rest is story.

So are they genetically altering something in the chickens that will make it grow arms, teeth and a tail instead of beaks, wing, ect? I bet it's possible, because birds are the closest relatives of the dinosaurs.

I had dinner last night with some friends from high school.  One friend's brother had worked as a cameraman on the Survivor tv show.  He explained how they set up the cameras, say, for water shots and the various angles that were needed.  But here's the cool part.  Each contestant has a double.  In many cases the original shots couldn't be used for the show because cameras and equipment would be in the shots.  So, the scenes would be refilmed with the doubles.  Having never seen the show (or even if I had) it never would have entered my mind that the so-called "real" contest would be filmed again after the fact in order to make it presentable (or, rather, "more real")  for the television audience, when in truth it was "more fake" by that point.

How much fun would it be to be a double and parade past the contestant you are doubling with a plate full of food and a nice cold beer.....

I can tell you the whole story shortened via PM or email.

In a really really really short version: I told her I always had some feelings and thought that sometimes she would also have feelings for me, though I was never sure. However, because we are pretty far from each other I never let it get in my way to fell in love with other girls - which would result in nothing, anyway. And asked if I would ever had any chance with her. She answered I was always on the very friend line, never on the border or beyond and that she loved me as a friend and only as a friend. And that she thought that it was reciprocal from my side. I also told that I tried to show her this (in fact, I said: I think it was never a secret for you), however, she told me she was surprised with it...

I feel weird about all this. I mean, I said such things that I thought it was like "hey girl! I would love to settle down with you".  But I guess I have to be less subtle [? i think this is not the word i want] and start to say things directly. I mean, since the begin. But, that conflicts with loads of stuff people say here about this issue.

I learned that it is possible to beat my record of being ready for work in 45 minutes, provided the fire alarm goes off while I'm in the shower.

Also, I learned that my clock/radio wake up alarm sounds eerily similar to my home's fire/burglar alarm. I have also learned (or perhaps decided) that I will be buying a new clock radio on my way to work, as I am now two hours ahead of schedule for the day.

Also, I've learned that this is the way my life works, and if it wasn't for things like this, I'd've probably gone insane years ago. There's nothing to keep routine out of your life like standing in the snow wearing no shoes and a bathrobe waiting for fire trucks that are never coming for a fire that doesn't exist.

I'd cheer for your friends being sensible and not-taking-the-interstate (and thereby actually
seeing some  of the beautiful  states they travelled through), but I'm sure they did take the
Interstate, so the stick vs. automatic is really irrelevant.

Still, I drove from VA to Atlanta once, and while I enjoyed the trip overall, the drive was something
of a drag....

If you buy cheap jugs of juice (drink, really, as there isn't any real juice in it), you can make it last a damn long time by watering it down, and splitting it between two jugs.  And even then, it's still sweet, and could be cut some more.  Cheap drink should really just be labeled concentrate.

1) "You must ALWAYS blow on the pie" is actually sage and wise advice.
2) Do not try and speed up getting rid of a ginormous messy pile of dry ice in a sink with a stream of hot water, you will only make things worse for yourself.
3) Hot chocolate is MUCH better with chunks of half-melted chocolate floating in it.

And

4) Elliott Smith was awesome :)

I do this with Juicy Juice©, which is 100% juice (very from-concentrate) not to save
money but because I don't think they add enough water when they de-concentrate it,
so (imho) it tastes better watered down with about 1/3 or 1/4 water, depending on the
exact variety...

It's time that I really try to step up and solve all of my issues. Really push through my jealously and feeling of terror and paranoia that seems to haunt me. It's time that I really force myself not to be worried about being alone, because I'm never truly alone in this world. I will always have myself, and I will always have options, and it's time that I learn to step back and be an emotional support for myself and not just leaning on other people. It's time I really do this, instead of just promising myself that I'll do it and push the responsibility away.

I'm ready for this.

Been seeing "totes" a lot lately, so I decided to Urban Dictionary its ass and here's what I discovered:

Totes

 A shorter more convenient form of the word: totally. This word is most commonly used by teenage girls.

The most obvious advantage of using this word is the time saved. Data collected at a prestigious university found that every syllable spoken takes approximately 0.14 seconds.

The same prestigious university also found that the average valley girl says the word totally around 190 times a day.

If you do the math, the average time saved by using the word totes as opposed to totally would save 26.6 seconds a day! Over the course of a year that adds up to 2.7 hours!!
Girl #1: I totes want to go to the shoe store because I totes need to purchase new heels.

Girl #2: Totes! I totes need a new pair too so I'll totes go with you.

Girl #3: OH EM GEE! you guys saved 0.7 seconds by saying totes instead of totally!!



So, like, yay for saving time.

I learned a little more fluency with Mozarts Fantasia in D Minor on piano today.  I haven't really played in quite a long time, except for on and off.  When I was originally learning this piece, I never cracked it and got it perfect.  I can play it through, but there are times when I seriously pause, and there are a lot of fluctuating sharps and flats, so I make a few mistakes.  I've decided that I'm going to crack the bugger this summer and today I feel like I made quite a bit of progress.  Take a bit more time for my fingers to get used to it though.  I forgot how fun it is to play.

For those interested, this is the piece.  Absolutely beautiful.

Indja - you're not obese,
but I'm not surprised your BMI is high
(seen enough photos of you)

And that means you have a choice, between

- getting the BMI down, and being fitter (exercise),
which gives most people a longer and healthier life.

and

- continuing as you are, with the pleasures that lifestyle has

Instead of focusing on losing weight why not focus on getting healthier - weight loss will come if you do it right and just getting fitter will make you feel better. Cut down on booze, cut back on the takeaway/fast food and walk everywhere. Walk even if you don't have to go anywhere (just don't freeze to death, I hear it gets a little chilly where you are).

Seriously don't focus too much on the BMI though. It really is a load of rubbish.

Btw, according to BMI, Im almost underweight.

BMI is one indicator of health and (un)healthy weight.
it's better than weight and height,
which is one reason BMI has become been more widely used

Measuring the % of body fat of a body's weight is a bit more accurate

If BMI is high, it's wise to look at other indicators,
and fully evaluate the situation.
almost always, you need to lose weight and exercise more

for me, not eating simply carbohydrates (sugars, and processed starches)
is all i have to do to keep my weight under control.
for me, this removes the craving for more of the same,
and the conflict of wanting to eat more than i should

look into
- blood glucose levels
- low glycemic index
- low glycemic load

But on the other hand, I don't eat enough, and I'm still classed as obese.

Post by: Indja on November 26, 2011, 11:06:49 AM
Well, I've put on a lot of weight in the last few months - i.e, since hooking up with Seamus xD Thanks for saying all that stuff about the BMIs being rubbish, I don't feel like I'm obese or anything, but I know that I am overweight and VERY unhealthy. I mean, I've not smoked since September and that's helped, but my diet's taken a real turn for the worse recently. I think both me and Seamy could do with losing some weight, just to be fitter and healthier and actually happier as well. I've talked to him a lot about it since then because it's really upset me, and we've decided that things like drinking water or squash instead of Coke all the time, and cooking real meals (with vegetables!) instead of eating take-aways and ready-meals and stuff are all things that are really easy to do, and that will probably make a big difference. We walk everywhere anyway, because neither of us drive (I don't know how, and he can't afford to keep a car or a bike even if he could scrape together enough to buy one in the first place), but we don't really go anywhere - he lives ten minutes from my college, where I also live, and his work is only half an hour's walk away.

However! I really want to go walking in the countryside, because I miss it terribly, and he says he's happy to come with me and try and be healthier together rather than just me doing it. I'm also determined to get back into rugby, especially after talking to my dad about it. He's coached women's rugby since year dot, and says that an experienced player, especially one who can play right across the front row, would be really valuable and that they'd probably be more than happy to have me. So that's something :)

I've made a list of things that we could do, changes to make and things to be aware of, and I've also made a list of things I used to do when I went a bit mad a while back and basically stopped eating and started puking. That's what I'm really afraid of now, that I'll fall into an unhealthy pattern of behaviour again, but I think that with Seamy's help and as long as he's aware of what to look out for and aware that it might happen, it shouldn't be too big a problem.

So, here's to being healthy and happy! :D

Yeah, the money is a big thing too! I'm making Quorn chili at the minute, waiting for it to thicken up. Made way too much, but my brother's knocking about and I'm sure he'll have some. Right now the only things I can make are chili and spag bol, and they're basically the same but with different spices/herbs and kidney beans in the chili xD

As for the fags, it was surprisingly easy this time. I've cut down on my drinking, which helped a LOT, and we spent a bit more time with Seamy's mum who is really ill from smoking and still gets through like 40 a day or something. My dad's dad died of cancer when I was like a month old or so, and Dad told me about how horrible it was to see to try and make me quit, but it didn't seem to hit home because I didn't know Syd (granddad) at all. In contrast, seeing a woman who's still in her early fourties and who looks like she's about sixty, who can't get up the stairs without half-dying and who, until she got her disability car, was basically confined to the house because she couldn't hardly move herself about, is pretty fucking hard to ignore.

Part of what makes chili so marvelous is that you can put the leftover in the
fridge, and just reheat a bowl at a time in the microwave... or you can reheat
the whole pot and it gets better every time (but you have to remember to add

Part of what makes chili so marvelous is that you can put the leftover in the
fridge, and just reheat a bowl at a time in the microwave... or you can reheat
the whole pot and it gets better every time (but you have to remember to add
water so it won't dry up...)

casseroles and lasagna also do better after sitting in the fridge a day or so.

They totally do. I always make lasagna a day ahead. Heaps better that way.

 Just a food safety note though, food should only be reheated once. So even though your chili might seem awesome the fourth time you heated it and ate it, it could also make you really sick.

There are more obvious posers in the world than I first thought. I also fully realised, like FULLY, that my 'partying' days ended the day I turned 18. I did everything early and now I'm ready for a career while most of my peers appear to me as 15 year old versions of myself. I'm 20 years old and I feel like an old loser right now.

how does being ready for a career make you a loser? it shows you are way more mature than your peers, because you are ready for the responsibility of work, and you will get far in the world while they waste time trying to sort themselves out.

i'm 18 and i want to start my career too haha, i need to do uni first though.

But srsly. I liked this thread. And I just learnt that I am almost incapable of holding a grudge, even for an evening. I was pissed to fuck at my housemate Keri, but then I saw her this morning and she's just a cheerful girl who likes a chat. I can't argue with that. I still want to drop her out of a window, but it seems I can't be mad at someone when they're in front of me unless they're actually in the act of doing something I hate. Hmmm.


I also learnt all about the crazy bullshit people in the late middle ages had to put up with, and that there are in fact five types of plague - bubonic, pneumonic, septicaemic, pharyngeal and meningeal.

he is  not a "big dj" - I put the quotation marks intentionally. I was talking more about the likes of Abigail Bailey. At least, all I've found from her was more like remixes or features, and she is always playing around here. She is sold here as a big dj from UK, but I may be wrong.

edit: wow that statement is all kinds of messed up.
The Electoral College is designed to make sure a candidate can't win the Presidency by winning
a massive majority in only one part of the country, while ignoring the rest.  The whole system
would work better if all states allocated their electoral votes proportionally (only Nebraska and
Maine do this now) - as it is, the election still turns on a very few "battleground" states, where
either candidate could win the state, and get a pile of electoral votes no matter how small the
margin of victory in that state.

Coconut oil is boss. It's also a lot healthier for cooking than other oils, as long as you don't mind whatever you're cooking to taste somewhat coconutty.

I learned that I don't deal with death well at ALL. My sister's dog is dying, and maybe it's because I'm having flashbacks to almost this exact time last year when my cat died, but it's really upsetting me.
And it's not like it was just her dog. When we all grew up and split off and moved out we took various animals, and he was a family dog up until that point. But still, it's not my dog and I don't like dogs that much anyway. I need to toughen up, apparently.
'cause if it wrecks me when animals die, I'm going to go nuts when a human I love dies.

dude, worst drive home ever.  I ended up having to hit the brakes on my car because a big truck/suv thing stopped in the middle of the street.  So I braked and thought maybe someone was trying to pull into a drive way on the other side of the road, I heard some yelling like someone saying "GO!" so I just sat there and waited.  The truck does a U-turn and I see what the heck he stopped for and it was a man laying in the middle of the street bloody,  He was yelling and clutching at his chest.  I called the cops and tried to give my general location, they got my number in case they needed it I guess and put my emergency lights on too.  It was sheer madness, luckily I didn't have to wait long for help to arrive, another man had jumped out of his car and was trying to keep the bleeding man calm...he was yelling and then got kind of quite, but he had been trying to sit up.

I still feel emotionally weird...i don't know if it's because i'm being stupid or if it's valid.

That's really traumatic. I'm so sorry.

I've never been able to stay calm and strong when i see someone suffering or dead. And i guess that's a quite common issue with most of the people. It doesn't matter if you call it empathetic thinking or emotional weakness. Like John Donne said, no man is an island.

I am a complete and total control freak. So it's weird that I smoke marijuana, really. But when I smoke, I can pretty much tell exactly how high I'm going to get by how much I smoke, and how long it's going to last, so it's not a big deal. And I only do it in places and around people I feel completely safe with, otherwise it ruins the experience and I get paranoid.

Edibles sound like it's more of a mixed bag, and they hit you at different times, and they sometimes last longer than they should. Way too many variables. Sooo not ever touching that.

I've never tried it. I know it works on vodka because vodka doesn't really taste of anything. Gin is pretty strongly flavoured so it might kill the taste a bit. This stuff tastes like juniper berries marinated in rocket fuel so it would probably be an improvement.

to always check the wiring connections.

last night, I spent a couple of hours wondering why my digital delay unit wasn't sending program changes to my guitar preamp. I repeatedly combed through the manuals for both units, as well as the manual for my MIDI switcher, all to no avail. finally, I got up and went around the back of the rack. MIDI cable going into the preamp - right. MIDI cable going out from the delay...WRONG!  :uglystupid2:

I plugged the cable into the right jack, checked to see that the programs changed as specified, and shut it off.  :happy11:

I just learned that the U.S. has a higher HIV prevalency rate and rate of death then pretty much all the other developed countries that we consider our equals. Vietnam, the country I'm supposed to be researching, has a lower one then us. And they're not even considered developed or anything. This is my sad and disappointed face. Wtf is wrong with us?

Well safe sex education clearly encourages promiscuity in teenagers.
There is a surprisingly (depressingly) high number of people who think that condoms are unnecessary. Hence the high teen pregnancy rate and high STD rate.

I learned lots but the most important life lesson I have learned today is never EVER put a red top in a wash where there are whites. No matter how safe you think it is. :-\

^Oooooh dear. I'm sorry you had to learn that one the hard way. There are whitening products that may be able to save that load of whites? Sooner is always better, too.

Today I learned what it means to "turn the hives".  Which means that, if you should own bees and a person passes from life on your property, the hives must be turned a half turn or they will fail.  It's a fun superstition.

Do tell.

There was apparently a scene in a previous episode that the two of them had to shoot which Misha described as "the gayest thing the show's ever done". In itself, that's not toooooo horrible, but then when Jensen was retelling the story he said that Misha had called it "the most unmanly thing". A fan pointed out (repeatedly, and fair fucking play to her for that) that he'd actually said "gay" and that gay does not mean "unmanly", and Jensen completely dismissed it by saying, "Well, it meant that right then". Like, wtf dude. And Misha was sat right next to him and didn't make any move to correct him or anything, which sucked ass.

Honestly, the whole cast is kind of fucking stupid about this sort of thing. They make a lot of jokes that basically boil down to "oh my God how freaking hilarious would it be if we were actually gay", which is bullshit. Jen's criticised one of the old writers, Sera Gamble who is one of the only women with any clout on the show, for writing "like a woman" and not writing his and Misha's characters 'manly' enough. It's made all the more baffling and frustrating by the fact that Misha's character isn't even a man - he's a genderless wave of celestial intent or whatever. So they can write him not understanding flirting, or lying, or personal space, but apparently he totally understands and conforms to society's limits of 'manliness' for some reason. Guhhh.

I usually try to avoid finding out things about the actors who play characters I adore. They just ruin the fantasy (generally be being absolute douches, like these guys apparently are).

Well, Dean's an effemophobic douche-canoe and has been since S01 - like I keep hoping he'll grow out of it but... no. But that's fiction, and while it still sucks and it's really annoying that nobody ever pulls him up on it, you can kind of go "Well, you know, being raised by John and growing up a hunter and blah blah blah, it makes sense". But Jensen has no excuse. Pretty gutted to hear it, it really drove home how little he thinks about/cares about his queer fans. And I'm mightily pissed at Misha for being part of it too, like he seems a bit more sensitive to this kind of thing but apparently not. I kind of want to kick them both, and everyone else tbh.

As for Dean, for me, the whole show has actually stopped at season five and he and Cas are living in the impala having hot sexy times and no one cares that Chuck just turned into magic sparkles and that Sam isn't living in Dean's pocket.

On March 28 in the year 193, the Praetorian Guards of the Roman Empire assassinated the emperor and sold off the empire to the highest bidder, who ruled for all of nine weeks, by which time no one liked him anymore and he was also assassinated.

This is why I love studying history xD

From Wiki...
Quote
Pertinax (Latin: Publius Helvius Pertinax Augustus; 1 August 126 – 28 March 193) was Roman Emperor
for three months in 193. He is known as the first emperor of the tumultuous Year of the Five Emperors.
A high-ranking military and Senatorial figure, he tried to restore discipline in the Praetorian Guards,
whereupon they rebelled and killed him. Upon his death he was succeeded by Didius Julianus, whose
reign was similarly short..........

Amazingly, perhaps, my Handbook Of Roman Imperial Coins (I don't just talk the nerd talk,
I'm the real deal) lists TWENTY ONE distinct patterns of coin minted under/for Pertinax, but
even the pennies are quite rare and valued in the 4- to 5-figure range (Dollars, GBP or Euros).

So check your bags of Roman coins, you may be rich.
