You know, there has been a lot of discussion about eating retarded roommates, and I think everyone here can see how fantastic this idea is. But there's one problem: no one is telling this guy how he should eat his roommate. People, eating roommates who don't deserve to live on this earth is a goddamn delicacy. You can't just go and tell a guy to just do it, there is a procedure to feasting on the flesh of the unworthy!

So, Anon, look- I know this may be uncharted territory for you, and that's okay, we all had our first time devouring the juicy flesh of those who do not deserve to live.

So I'm gonna give you some pointers here:
1. Before you even begin, think about this person. I mean, really think about this person. They probably have a family, people who love them and care for them. People who will miss them when they are dead and gone, the only remains their hollow bones, buried in your backyard. This person has a life.
This person got vinegar and oil mixed up.
Kill them.
Wipe their existence from this earth.
Become consumed in the thrill of death, in the power of taking one's life from another. They are weak, and you are strong.

2. Offer this pathetic shell of a human as a sacrifice for The Ones Who Wait Below.
I don't understand how everyone misses this one! You're gonna eat your roommate, that's is something that, really, you just have to do at this point. Why not kill two birds with one stone and get some brownie points with The Ancient Ones Who Will One Day Rise and Bring Madness and Doom to Our Frail World? No reason!

3. The murder!
There are a lot of ways to do this. Give it some thought, take your time, be creative!
I'd recommend getting a giant fryer and frying in oil for that artistic touch, and then telling this guy that the fryer is a giant hot-tub and he should really take a dip.
Now I know what you're thinking, "But how am I gonna get this turd into a fryer? There's no way he/she is gonna fall for that!"
They got vinegar and oil mixed up.
They will believe it.

But there are many way to kill someone, and it's probably better that you figure it out for yourself just how you want this pathetic sack of meat to die.

4. Eat that fucker.
I am not an expert on the matters of cooking a human being, but information into this subject is easy enough to find. There's no reason you shouldn't this waste of flesh taste amazing.

There are some other important matter that come up with eating your roommate, such a legal matters and the whole possibly making a binding pact with deities who will demand the flesh of innocents, but you seem like a smart fellow who doesn't mistake vinegar for oil. I'm sure you can handle yourself.
Remember: eating your roommate can only open the doors to new, wonderful things like eating your parents or that one dick who laughed when you stuttered while giving a presentation to your class or that jackass who called you a faggot while you were going for a walk.
You have the power.

I realize eating her would solve quite a few problems. But here's the thing: I don't think she'd taste very good. She'd be incredibly tough and knowing her diet doesn't exactly make this an appetizing proposition. Also, I don't have enough space in the freezer for all the meat. I could probably eat for a week with just one leg while the rest would go off. And I don't like wasting food.

I see peaches and I think of Animal Crossing. Or of being hungry. Not boobs or butts. Sex is kind of a "meh" thing for me-- the only partners I've had either were asexual/abstinent, or screwed me over before we had sex. So it'd take a lot for me to be interested in it again, or to really want to lose my virginity right now.

TBH though the only things I intensely want right now don't exist, or seem really far-fetched.

I really don't get all this Animal Crossing mess. It's running on real time, so you have to either fuck with the clocks to do the stuff you want or you play on its terms? It's like a raiding guild but you don't get any big fire demons to kill.

Unless I'm wrong about that and it does involve dungeon crawling to fight demons.
>> No. 382904
It is not the sort of game you play to "win" or to be the best at. It is a game where you socialize with little animal people and get furniture and slowly pay off loans. The whole point of the thing is slowing down to smell the roses--if you feel the need to "time travel" to get certain outcomes, you are probably taking the game way more seriously than it is intended to be taken.

It is basically supposed to be something you play for fifteen minutes a day, and if you miss a day it keeps going without you--but it's not like you missed anything too vital even so.

I went to a Walk for Suicide Prevention.

At the end, all the participants were given butterflies that we released all at once, which symbolized hopefulness for the futre or something of that nature.

The butterflies were a bit disoriented from being in an enclosed space for a long time, and didn't fly very well. Also, the large number of butterflies in a single place attracted a large number of birds, which descended on our gathering and brutally devoured all the butterflies in front of us, who were in no shape to escape from their predators.

I'm feeling an interesting mixture of depression and amusement.

>> No. 382966
Awh. Thank you, fellow Anon. I try my best.

It's not as nice as it seems, honestly...I do have interest in sex, it's just that two of my exes cheated on me before I could sleep with them, and my parents were nosy, so I figured if this was what relationships were like, unless I ran into someone who proved me different, I wanted nothing to do with them. I still do hold onto that dream of having a spouse and cuddling after sex and having a quiet life together, I guess. I try to still be pleasant despite being kind of cynical.

That sucks man. I have similar problems.
Got into argument with ex over her cheating a few months ago and she left the apartment we were using together. Then she did something retarded: went to court, tried to get a restraining order. Judge told her to fuck off because you can't just have one of those for no reason.
So what did I do? Slept with her mother. She's hot and we're still dating, age difference only 12 years, there nothing wrong with it.

My solution is not for everyone probably, its important though to remember there are more and better fish in the sea. If you think back to all the girls you know, isn't there one thats better? Pursue her!

Oh I'm not saying he wouldn't get back with me because of my hair, it's just he really likes me with long hair and would beg me not to cut it when we were together, so it would be an advantage I guess. Like wearing red if I were ever to see him again!

How do I get better at drawing cute stuff? I feel all I can do reasonably well are wrinkly/scarred old men or monsters. I wanna draw cute and sexy stuff, but it always looks hideous and ends up smack-dab in the uncanny valley.
>> No. 383104
Mostly, just keep drawing even if it sucks. But look up "Appeal." I hate to bring John K into this because I disagree with so much of what he stands for, but he has a pretty good understanding of Appeal, so if you can find his blog posts on Appeal, read them. Just take the things he says with a grain of salt.

The key point is that you want to reduce the number of lines used, and you often want to go for baby-like proportions--big eyes, small face, features bunched together vertically, and baby fat. A larger head-to-body ratio can be helpful, too. Even on things that are cute but not actually babies and/or young. Err on the side of under-defining features.

Generally, the more realistic the style you're working in, the harder cute is going to be to capture. If you go for something approaching realism, try using shading to define facial features instead of lines (and light shading, at that).

File 137651524538.gif - (119.75KB , 500x750 , tumblr_mr1asgk1dk1qhy6c9o1_500.gif )

The best advice I can give is to simplify things like eyes, noses, mouths, hair. Remember you don't have to actually draw a realistic representation of an eye or a mouth, just an icon that people will perceive as an eye or mouth. Things like Pusheen are a great example of this. You get that its a cat, despite it having almost the minimal amount of line work.

Also I've found making things more "rounded" and less angular artwork is what people find cute.

For sexy stuff, there's a blog called BabeLab that has some good thoughts. As with any other "tutorial" source, take everything you learn from it and weigh it against what you've already learned in your art studies, but it at least breaks things down in a pretty academic way.

while we're all asking for advice, how does one deal with setting the emotional mood in writing? eg the story i'm writing at the moment, the base tone is one of tension or unrest - they're on the lam and could be discovered at any moment basically - but there are occasional scenes of levity, or romance, or anger. however i feel like when these come up, it's kind of an emotional whiplash? it's like "hmm i'm tired and worried and then BAM I SHOVE YOU ANGRILY AGAINST A WALL BECAUSE FUCK YOU FROM NOWHERE" or "gee i'm uncertain about the future of my friends WHOOPS I TRIPPED AND STUCK MY TONGUE DOWN YOUR THROAT". it's kind of hard to explain because i don't know any writing terminology but how do i...smooth out those emotional transitions? does that even make sense?

I dunno about necessarily creepy, but you can make things seem old and ugly by the reverse process of making them cute: Go for anatomical correctness, or at least focus on putting things on a realistic skeleton, and emphasize details that show weathering, age and damage. Put complexities in the form that make different parts of the body stand out from each other more.
>> No. 383127

Also, on humans draw things that are intentionally not-quite-right, and on animals, draw things that are too human. Give animals giant human teeth or photorealistic human eyes in place of their bestial eyes, but keep everything else the same.

Basically, to maximize creepiness you just want things to be WRONG. Not wrong in the form of "this guy doesn't know what the shit he's doing" and more wrong in the sense that "what the fuck is that thing?!"

Yeah, that seems like a good way to describe it. Go for ambiguity. Something that is scary for obvious reasons, like a big monster with giant fangs and claws and horns everywhere, isn't really all that troubling because, as the old joke goes "At least it isn't even BIGGER." Something that's troubling for reasons you can't quite put your finger on makes your brain do backflips because it's not sure how to react to it.

I'd already seen the "Why Are Things Creepy" video, but it's a good 'un. Wrinkles are something I already do, it bothered the hell out of me when someone drew older people looking like young people with very faint lines on their face. I can't quite get photorealistic yet, but my anatomy is getting better.

I do have a weird concept of "creepy", though. I don't find kids creepy (9 times out of 10). I don't find spiders or snakes creepy. I don't believe in cryptozoology, so I don't find that whole subject matter creepy. Body horror and mind rape fuck me up, though.

I don't know if it's too late to offer advice on this, but consider going for the tease rather than the payoff. Like having characters in that situation outright making out obviously takes away from the tension that's building. But if you like have them stuck in close quarters, all up in one another's personal space by necessity, and quickly looking away when they notice they're staring or something....or even just have them flirting.

Basically, use sexual tension to INCREASE the plot tension, rather than to provide any sort of relief. Give the reader blue balls both narratively and sexually. If romance/sexuality is a key feature of a story, an actual kiss and/or other sexual activity should be the payoff for a lot of work from the characters' perspectives. Unless the central conflict of the romance arc is in, like, falling out of love. Or keeping the passion burning after the honeymoon period is over. But most romance/sex arcs are about NEW romances/affairs, and plots centered around new romances / affairs should definitely be as much about mounting tension as the rest of the plot should.

The subject of the romance is somewhat complicated, because romance IS the sort of central theme in the whole thing, it's built on three very different types of love that are going on and they're all pre-established/on-going. Or well, it is in the main one I'm writing. The other one is a fluffy easy-going story that's full of ~blooming romance~.

You are wearing your failings like a security blanket. You are making up excuses why you shouldn't try because it's more comfortable to wallow in self-loathing/self-pity than to try and run the risk of failure. Even though failure doesn't actually even hurt or take very long. It's a mild inconvenience at worst.

People who look worse and have more debt/less money than you are currently happily involved in relationships. Yes, they're more experienced, but many of them are in their first relationship, and would've had the same level of experience as you if they had not taken the chance--they didn't have any more experience than you when they did.

This is true for everyone, pretty much. Look at it this way: you're not as ugly as Rick Ocasek (as no one is), and he was married three times. Or look at the guy who plays the most recent Doctor on Doctor Who, Matt Smith--he's one of the weirdest looking dudes on TV, and yet fangirls go crazy over him because they like his personality. One can overcome any failing as long as they have other traits that make them fun or fulfilling to be around.

What kind of rose-colored world do you live in? The wrong kind of failure can be devastating. I get that you're trying to be helpful, but I hate speeches like that. They tend to minimize or trivialize the negative experiences in a person's life.

>You are making up excuses why you shouldn't try because it's more comfortable to wallow in self-loathing/self-pity than to try and run the risk of failure.
Aye. But that self-loathing will never go away. I could get rid of my debt, shed the pounds, clean myself up, and I'd still be someone who couldn't socialize on any personal level, depressed, and emotionally distant. That's a turn off to any woman, and I would never try imposing such a person on anyone at all.

But that's even more depressing to think about than normal, so I focus on the external, simple factors as way of explanation instead.

>you're not as ugly as Rick Ocasek (as no one is), and he was married three times.

Furthermore, they feel pressure to seek the higher education and debt because without it, unless they have special circumstances or are extraordinarily talented, they'll be stuck earning a minimum wage job that isn't very rewarding to work and doesn't make enough to support the basic necessities.

I mean, if we didn't motivate them that way, they'd probably just waste away their life having fun or trying to "find themselves" or bullshit like that.

If you plan it right the debt is negligible. The problem is that no one instructs kids how to plan it before they get in, and the banks just give them loans without giving them strategies on debt reduction.

How to end up with <5k of student debt after diploma:
1. Get bachelors/masters close to home (parents), like within public transport range.
2. Do apprenticeship or coop, if you're lucky it can cover you 90%.
3. Have a part time job, it covers some of tuition and food.
4. DO NOT spend money aside from food, transport, books and tuition.
5. DO NOT eat out, drink out, spend money with friends, buy expensive clothes, get cable/video games, own a car or pay rent on a place.
6. Constantly apply for grants to orgs, govt, business, and family. I sent hundreds of applications and got two grants worth 200 dollars each. It's not much but it helps.
7. Pick a major and stick with it, do 12 hour a day classes, do summer school as well. Your goal is to get a diploma in the shortest period of time. You can get bachelors in 3 years and masters in another one if you push the time.
8. If you plan on quitting after bachelors, it's not worth it. Bachelors diploma won't get you a job that can get rid of your debt.

How to end up with 200k of student debt after diploma:
1. Get degree in another state/province (tooth, this is equivalent of you going to school in Germany or France). Or worse, get a degree in a college town, where everything is overpriced to take advantage of students.
2. Use da plastikkkk for everyfing.
3. Fuck jobs, party allatime.
4. DO spend money aside from food, transport, books and tuition.
5. DO eat out, drink out, spend money with friends, buy expensive clothes, get cable/video games, own a car or pay rent on a place.
6. Fuck debt reduction.
7. Change major every year, stay in school for 7+ years.
8. Don't get masters or PhD.

Don't feel bad if you fucked up on a few of these, I did too and ended up with 25k debt.

Wow, that sounds like 4 years of "why didn't I just kill myself". Uni over here is so different, you're expected and encouraged to move out and go crazy in your first year. Your bursary + loan is (usually) enough to live on so you don't HAVE to work either. You can usually swap your course freely for the first three years too. Fourth year is pure hell, though. I dicked around for two years on full bursary + loan and I think I have like four, maybe five thousand in debt? I don't have to pay it until I'm earning over a certain amount, and then you pay it in proportion to your wages.

Also I could study anywhere in the world and it wouldn't cost me extra, the government pays for the tuition of any Scottish student (up to a reasonable amount - they wouldn't pay for me to study somewhere like America because the fees are pants-on-head retarded). To be honest it would probably have been cheaper for me to study in Germany, the rent is way low over there.

Thank you.

>It's not like you're a crazed serial killer or anything
But this is the internet! I could be anything! Even a moose!

I like to think I'm an outlier. There are a few things that led to this:
1) I went to a pretty expensive college; in fact, it was the second-most expensive per schooling week (we had a weird schedule.)
2) I had almost no scholarships. I did shit for extra-curricular in high school and didn't even bother looking for more than a day.
3) During my school terms I paid for everything using funds from student loans.
4) As part of 2, I'd over-apply for funds to cover said expenses. Books, room, food, gas, entertainment. Never got denied once for a loan.

Most people don't do all four of these things. I think.

The thought, at the time, was that with a full Bachelor's of Science in Computer Science I would graduate, quickly get a decent paying job (upwards of $50k/yr), and pay it off after 5-10 years. I didn't anticipate having a mid-life crisis of sorts in 2006 (when my depression began in earnest), taking an extra year and a half to graduate (I just couldn't handle a full course load, mainly because I goofed off far too much, so it took more time as I took reduced loads), and managed to graduate into the Great Recession (thanks, Obama). Not that the plan would have been smart in the first place, and hitting that crisis wall (when I was considering dropping out entirely) didn't cause me to reduce my loan amounts.

Additionally, at this point, between the intern work at my college, my Army enlistment (with honorable-if-early discharge), and my professional experience (only one company, but except for my time in the Army I've been with them since soon after I graduated) I could likely get a much higher paying job (make about $30k now after taxes) but the lack of self-confidence tells me that I wouldn't make it at other companies, my workplace is extremely laid back, I have minimal oversight. So while my financial woes hang heavily, they don't do so to the point of forcing me to a breaking point and actually seeking higher employment.

Soviet America is an insane mixture of people and priorities.

>the government pays
Actually you pay.

Private income tax in Britain is 18% higher than in the United States, so assuming you get a job and enter the middle class bracket 40k pounds/60k dollars in just 10 years you'll have paid 108 thousand dollars more than the average American [(60000*.39)-(60000*.21)]*10.
If you factor in the debt you have to repay, it probably bumps it close to that guys debt value (128k), am I right? What's your debt?

Basically if you have 50 working years that's $540k more taxes an average Brit pays... Which considering your HDI is really not worth it. Actually I wonder where all that extra money goes? Gold plating toilets in Buckingham palace?
>> No. 383183
Yes, yes, I know where the money comes from. Taxes are the price of civilisation, my friend. I'd rather pay more tax in my lifetime if it meant more people could go to university rather than basically ruin my life in one sitting. I've came from below the poverty line, I probably wouldn't even have graduated highschool in America nevermind make it to college.
>> No. 383184
USA does have public high school, community college and various scholarships if you're poor.
It's only the universities and more expensive colleges you have to pay for. Even then the cost is the same as in UK, the only difference is in USA you control your own debt and in UK the government is your middleman.
Also it's a very poor middleman, judging by inefficiency.
>> No. 383185
>Private income tax in Britain is 18% higher than in the United States
Yes. And for that they get cheap/"free" university education and "free" health care (and the BBC, though not everyone has to pay that tax).

I would hop that wagon in a second here in the states. My insurance costs are 6% of my take-home pay (12% if you exclude employer reimbursement) and my monthly student loan payment is 37%. For now. In a year or two it will jump to 60%, and at that point I will have to look for another, higher-paying job.

So an extra 18% in taxes, and in return I can actually afford to get preventative care, maybe even get therapy, not worry about going to the doctor's over something that I'm wary of, and not spend a good chunk of my money on student loan bills each month.

Also the police over there don't seem to be utter power-hungry twats, from what I understand. (Though their government is more full-force nanny/surveillance state than we are over here.)
>> No. 383186
You can't talk about "education the UK" because it's a devolved issue and handled far differently in each country eg in England the average price for a year's tuition is £2000+ more than Scotland, and they are expected to pay for it themselves at the time via loans, etc. Courses, funding, loans, etc are all different and it's kind of a mess. I don't know enough about the English system to really compare, other than the Tories fucking with a raise in tuition fees.

Also the 18% high income tax pays for a whole lot more than just the NHS and education. In Scotland it will not just pay for my degree and my vaccines or whatever else I need, it pays for a carer for my mother when she's too old to look after herself, it pays for my grandma's dentures and my glasses and my neighbor's prescriptions, and a whole bunch of other things. Also VAT goes towards a lot of that to. I think it's worth it.

It's not free dude, it's not even cheaper, prices are about the same.

i don't mind financially incentivizing good things. we already subsidize terrible or necessary shit like corn, cattle, gas, and letting food rot to keep prices from fluctuating. most backwards fucking shit ever, but okay.

why not be more upfront and make it clear that education really is an investment in our country's future by making it far more affordable and even have a stipend!

well... i know the arguments against that. people in america simultaneously see college education as both a way to move up in society, a necessary standard (the new high school diploma), and a place where people can go to party, waste money, and get a "useless degree".

Seriously though, that is like post-med school levels of student debt. I'm not sure what the story is but you kind of have to work at it to get it that high.
>> No. 383191
You're missing a key point here though--income tax doesn't affect your credit rating, doesn't accrue interest, and only applies if you are making money. You don't get out of school and have trouble finding a job and still have to start paying your income tax.

When I got out of school, I had $10,000 in debt. But I'll probably pay more than $20,000 before I've paid it off. My first job getting out of school, my student loans were costing me 36% of my paycheck, which is, you'll note, twice what I would've been paying in extra Income Tax if the Income Tax was 18% higher. Which means I was living with my parents a lot longer, put off things like buying homes and cars and generally participating in the economy so I could focus on getting out of debt. Which puts me way behind people of previous generations at my age in terms of individuating as a person, developing net worth, taking risks that allow me to attain a better career / better lot in life, and contributing to the economy and infrastructure by paying more taxes making more frequent use of disposable income, to put it in terms of things that help you.

I'm doing better now, ten years later. But that was mostly luck. I would be more than willing to accept an 18% increase in taxes (which would, incidentally, double what I'm currently paying to pay back my student loans) if it had meant that I would've been able to get my career and finances in order six years earlier because of how much less I would've been paying when I first got out.

All I can think of right now is how I'm super happy I don't have to put up with weird personal quirks or drama with ex-SH's friends/coworkers, and that all the money I saved up for the anniversary present can now go towards the down-payment of the newer car I want.

Hey it could be worse, I know people with 90k of student debt because they partied all the time and dropped out before completing their philosophy major, at least you aren't any worse off. What did you finish?

>if you paid for United States post-grad classes with student loans.
The "if" is the key word, you're supposed to get a job and grants so you avoid paying for everything with your loan. Read down to what you're not supposed to do, #2 in the list.

If you aren't making money and are homeless you can apply for bankruptcy, credit companies can't repo your kidneys and they can't make money on a bum, they will renegotiate a loan if it's that bad a situation. As for credit score, well that's the price of a bad decision, and it's easily fixable if you know what you're doing.

Income tax is for life dude, student loan terms are usually around 10 years max. That 18% increase in taxes means you pay ten times as much as your student loan in the loan repayment period (decade), continue paying that amount for the rest of your life (~40 years), plus you will still have a loan to repay besides the taxes. If you think paying orders of magnitude more is better... well at least we know you're not an economy major.

>my student loans were costing me 36% of my paycheck
What the flying fuck, are you complaining about being given an opportunity to pay less?

>When I got out of school, I had $10,000 in debt. But I'll probably pay more than $20,000 before I've paid it off.
That's only possible if: Your monthly payment is below $100 (which is retarded), or if your interest is above 10% (which is also retarded). And even if you pay 20k at the end (you can't) it's still a hair under the 108k of extra taxes you'd pay in a system with 18% more income tax.

Some more obvious tips:
1. Make sure the bank keeps your student loan term at 10 years or less. Banks that extend it to 20, 30 or 40 years are trying to rip you off. That being said, for a 10k debt your monthlies should be around $110, for a 20k debt it should be around $250 and so on. If you find yourself paying your below that amount you are getting screwed hard. Although some people here seem to like paying 10 times more for the same thing, so who gives a fuck.
2. Look up the loan restructuring options before you get a loan, they're right in the pamphlet and an hour of reading now can prevent decades of headache later. Every single legit bank has the option of bankruptcy in case you are insolvent. They must by law, and because it's practical.
3. Believe in yourself, you don't need a third party to take control of your life, that kind of surrender of personal responsibility is for cults and children. You are stronger than all your doubts put together, and if failure comes knocking on your door stand up and face it knowing that it came from you, and anything you created you can unmake.

Think of your student loan as a Troll game boss.

This game boss is weak with low damage but has 10000 points of health. And as an added troubling issue his gimmick is health regeneration at 700 points per hit.

In this fight DPS doesn't matter, if you do a constant DPS of 500 with your lvl 3 dagger, he's going to be able to tank it out because he regens more than that each time you hit him.

You heed high alpha, like your Dragonbone Sword boosted to lvl 10 by the Ring of Reclaiming, which does a high alpha of 5000 but has low DPS at 300 per second. Even so every hit about 4300 damage will be slipped past his regen rate and soon enough he'll be gone.

The higher damage you do, the more punishment you can push past his regeneration, and with a high enough alpha his regen of 700 per hit won't matter.

A "bad economy" isn't a sound reason for not getting a job. That's a boogie-man argument used by people who don't emphasize their skills and knowledge during the application process. That's an argument used by people with a generic CV that isn't tailored for the position they're applying for and cover letters that don't stand out. That's an argument for people who get letters of recommendation from their uncles and high school teachers during their third year in college instead of from reputable professors who they impressed with their performance in their classes. That's an argument for people who couldn't be arsed to make professional relationships because they were too "busy" with "other things" to "prepare for their own futures."

Don't be one of those people, anon. Put the fucking comic book down and get dat ass moving.


Quite good. By having little free time, I inadvertently forced myself to only socialize with people who shared similar professional interests. I hung out with people from my research labs. I went drinking on Fridays with other interns at the graphic design place I worked at. I played vidya with a group of classmates I kept having the same high-level electives with. Fun fact: two of those jobs I talked about came from these pools of people, not random nerds who post on an anonymous internet forum.

I mean, you guys are cool (sometimes [ok rarely]) but you can't do shit to get me access to the people and places I actually want to go in my life.


So walking out of a university with three degrees (on said university's bill) in the same amount of time it took most other people to get one is less impressive?

You seem to think I am asking for help now. I'm not. I am saying that if I had had the assistance that the people in other countries get when I was just starting out, I would be much better off now, and the additional Income Tax strain wouldn't even be an issue because I would be making more money than I am now, having established a career.

You are trying to give advice like you're some sort of grown up who's got his shit sorted out talking to a child, and that's not what's happening here. You are a person who favors small short-term gains over large long-term gains, gains which help both the community and you more than you would've gotten from the short-term gains. But because it feeds into this cult of self-sufficiency you've bought into, you feel like it is better that you and the rest of the world are in a worst situation than you would be if you would act with more community-mindedness.

The situation is this: I am doing great now. If I were like you, I would take this as a sign that everyone else can go fuck themselves. But I don't think that way, because I recognize that when other people do better, it benefits me more than when only I am doing well--the economy is better, the creative output of society is better, and violent crime is lower (because those who are doing well financially tend to commit more white-collar crimes than violent ones), and because I remember where I came from. I was in a bad situation, which I have come out of. If I had had government assistance during that time, I would most likely be contributing to society much more than I am now. As it is, I am only able to serve my own interests, rather than the interests of the community.

In other words: fucking pay for college for kids so one of them will cure cancer before I get it.

>large long-term gains
I don't call paying more than I have to a gain.

Also if the government route of dealing with student debt is not nearly as efficient as you think. Take the government of Canada for example, they lend from banks for low interest (1-2%) and then lend to the student for higher interest (3-4%), pocketing the difference. At the same time there are banks that offer student loans at 3%. Sorry if that doesn't fit everyone's definition of an improvement.

>I would be much better off now
Your own personal experience doesn't apply to everyone. My own loan was 20k and I'm paying it off quite easily while developing my career, in fact my loan is kind of what pushed me into the job market.
No I wouldn't want to pay half a million dollars more in taxes over my lifetime just so I have a perceived "head start", I'd rather buy a house with that money so my kids can inherit something other than a bloated tax system.

I think the difference between you and I (so far as I can tell, and I apologize if I'm misunderstanding you) is that you are more concerned with complete independence, both in taking care of yourself and not having to take care of others, especially when they may not be trying to work for themselves. (Not that you're cold-hearted, but you may not see required payments into a large system as being useful.)

Myself, even if it would cost me more in the long run (and I haven't done the math, so wouldn't dispute that), I have no problem with the higher tax rate if it means that others get the help they need. I would directly benefit by going to the doctor if I feel I need to (instead of staying home because I can't afford it and hoping that whatever the issue is is not serious/permanent,) seeking therapy for my depression (which, again, I can't afford), and not having enormous debt over my head (though not debt free, some of that is from Credit Cards); but I also benefit indirectly, because a healthy and educated public is to my benefit. I'll be less likely to catch something, those that are mentally impaired (and, especially, potentially dangerous) with no support circle can be kept off the streets; better educated people are less likely to vote in nincompoops, maintain their homes which could affect mine, and more.

But, further out than that, we need steps like this to obtain the Jobless Economy. It's not that there will be no jobs at all, but between further and further automation (which started with assembly lines, but will eventually work down to fast food joints, unmanned garbage trucks, stores installing massive 3D printers and printing items on demand instead of small, simple items being shipped around and stocked) most jobs will become obsolete. Unless the population suddenly shrinks to meet this, we'll potentially have unemployment of 50% or more. If we have changed to a society more than willing to help each other out in many different capacities, it will lead to huge trouble. You can't have 50% of the population be marketers, middle-managers, and professional members of the arts.

I can see this happening in my lifetime, but even if it doesn't it's something we need to work towards.

As an aside, I see healthcare as being a necessary service, like police and fire, and so should be a part of the government. No matter what the companies say, public health insurance is 100% about profits. In addition, healthcare can't work with any kind of capitalist system. "Hi, my leg is ripped off, I have it here, how much is it to reattach? HOW MUCH?! Nevermind, I'll call the other hospital across town and see if they're any better..." A Single Payer system will make the whole thing work far more efficiently and cheaply (per person) than anything we have now.

(Though I agree that the system you described in Canada sounds a bit silly and isn't really an improvement.)

This. I was never flirted with until I dated another girl for the first time. As soon as I told my friends "I'm dating a girl," I got a lot of pity from people who thought I had been burned by a guy, or I was afraid of penises, or from people who thought they needed to "redeem men" for me, and that I wasn't in a "real relationship", or the whole "I liked you first, but I never really talked to you, and how dare you, I deserve you more."

These were people who upfront told me "I need to be validated by a relationship," and "I need someone with a vagina and breasts who will pay attention to me." Why would I date you for reasons like that? If you don't need to date me specifically, but any woman will do, then look for someone else. Someone who isn't already in a monogamous relationship.

The three are interchangeable synonyms, although poorly educated people sometimes read differences into them. Like recently someone came up to me and said pansexuals are also pro-animal sex and pedophilia, which isn't even near the definition.

So do bisexuals, there is no real difference. However when people who like any sex refuse lumberjacks in skirts, badly made up drag queens or cheap plastic surgery jobs, people call us bisexual for some reason. I will date transgenders if I'm attracted to them, people still say I'm bisexual because I'm not instantly attracted to all transgenders. Apparently it's bad manners to have standards.

I can't recall if you live in the states; if you don't, the following will be 100% useless to you.

When you joined wherever you work, you probably filled out a W-4. A major part of this asked about exemptions. The more exemptions you claim, the less taxes are pulled from your pay. But you still owe those taxes; at the end of the year, you might be able to claim deductions to lower what you owe, but you won't know for sure until then. (Your company/employer pays other taxes, separate from what is taken out of your check.)

If this is an issue for you (and it seems it is), then look at the tax records you received, which should contain the exemptions you claim somewhere. Most single, childless people can claim 1 exemption, at most, but it's a good idea to claim 0 exemptions. This will make it far more likely that you get a refund at the end of the year or, at worst, pay nothing extra.

This is for a simple employer-employee relationship, though; contractors and other sorts have more complicated rules they have to go by, so depending your job YMMV. If it is more complex, it will be worth it to sit down for an hour or so with a tax professional (not H&R Block, haha) to go over how to best keep from owing the government at the end of the year.

Journalism was at one point considered the way to learn to write. Douglas Adams and Warren Ellis have both made note of it, I think--I know Douglas Adams got his start as a reporter, but I'm not sure about Ellis. He might've been writing about how it affected Hunter S. Thompson, in reference to Spider Jerusalem or something.

I think Adams had an essay about it in Salmon of Doubt, where he mostly talked about how it forced you to develop a voice, and to learn to work under pressure, and how to find subjects to write about even when you didn't have anything about it.

Or possibly this was stuff Neil Gaiman wrote in his biography of Adams. It was a long time ago that I read it, so I can't recall for sure.

What is going on with hospital billing/can they garnish your paycheck?

This hospital I went to is known for having a charity program, treating homeless people, etc and they still are charging me double my monthly income (this is AFTER I sent in my application for financial assistance and laid out my money status for them.) I told them there I couldn't pay that amount, was denied a payment plan because I have bad credit (and what the flipping fuck is that reasoning), and now collection agencies are calling me. I'm ignoring it for now, my credit is already fucked. I had an emergency. The cast that was supposed to stay on for six weeks fell off in four days because it was so shitty.

Many companies, especially the larger ones, forbid active supervisors/bosses from giving references for anyone beneath them. Mainly to protect themselves from lawsuits, because the supervisor is seen in acting in an official capacity. If someone does put them down, all they can do is forward the caller to HR, who will give them the years and positions the person worked there, nothing more. So a lot of companies have that requirement just to avoid the whole thing.

Absolutely. Not only is it a courtesy thing ("Hey man, can I put you down?" "Yeah" "Cool, don't be surprised if someone calls over the next month or two"), but it also gives you a chance to better gauge how someone would respond to such a call; if you've worked with someone but don't know them well personally, they might give you a bad reference, especially if they're called out of the blue.

Or, if it's a really old co-worker, they might not remember you right away when someone calls if you don't touch base first, which is also a negative against you.

Finally, you can make sure you have up-to-date contact info for them. Nothing worse than having a reference that has "This number is no longer in service" when someone calls it.
>> No. 383399
I know all my references on a personal level, so I don't really have the risk of running into any of those problems.

OK I recently had a kind of thought provoking discussion about a sensitive subject, so I'm gonna ask you guys.

If you skip out on paying a prostitute, is it rape, theft, fraud or breach of contract?

If a pimp sleeps with a prostitute, is it rape, embezzling or kickbacks?

>> No. 383416
(This is all ignoring the local illegality of prostitution in the first place.) Neither case would be rape; the prostitute (supposedly) willingly had sex. It would only be rape if the prostitute didn't consent, was coerced into the act, or had impaired decision-making (drugged/drunk).

For the first, it's the same thing as what happens when you hire a gardener, he does his work, and you don't pay him after the fact. I think that if you never intended to pay the person in the first place it would be fraud, but if you just refused to pay them after the fact (perhaps for unsatisfactory work) then it's breach of contract. Theft doesn't work because you don't deprive someone of a possession (if you agree to pay after the service, the money isn't theirs yet). If the reverse happens, where you pay someone and they don't do the promised work, then it could also include theft since they're depriving you of money you already have.

In the second case, it can't be kickbacks because those are from an outside party. If the prostitute was a contractor and, in exchange for taking her on and promoting her more than the other prostitutes, she gave you a cut of her take then it could be kickbacks. Embezzlement is a specific form of theft, where the theft is from one's own company. If she's on the clock and the "pimp" (or manager/agent, in a civilized world) had sex with her during that time he might be depriving the company of potential income, but this act alone isn't illegal as it's just incompetence/poor management.

It would be embezzlement if she passed on payment and, instead of recording it properly, the manager took it for himself.

Now, if he was going to pay her for the act and then didn't, it would be the same as a client who didn't pay up for the first example.

I am not a lawyer, this is not legal advice, yadda yadda.

I'd charge them both with all crimes. Simple solution.
>> No. 383418
if the consent of the sexual contact is conditional and those conditions are not met (eg 'we can have sex but only if you wear a condom' and the guy take it off halfway through), then consent is withdrawn and it's sexual assault...or something like that. there was a recent case along those lines in the news not long ago, i don't really car enough to look it up. i think it depends where you're from, really.

If prostitution were decriminalized, I would suggest specific laws be written to define situations like the former scenario. I would say that it was at the very least sexual assault/rape for the reasons >>383418 gave AND breach of contract--not sure if fraud really enters into it unless they forge their signature on the contract or something.

For the second case, of the pimp sleeping with the prostitute, it would depend on the situation. If her career was threatened if she didn't sleep with him, it'd be exactly the same as if a manager at Denny's threatened to fire a waitress that didn't sleep with him. And obviously if he just talked her into it, there'd be no crime, as long as she was okay with it. And of course if he paid her, it'd just be a standard business transaction.

The question comes interesting when it comes to the Pimp giving her a bigger cut of the profits for agreeing to sleep with him--obviously in any other business, this would be considered sexual harassment and verboten. But in a sex-for-hire business, it is essentially just giving her an extra assignment of work she already agrees to do for "overtime" pay, so to speak.

Indeed. This looks like a good run down for some countries: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-19333439

And are you referring to Julian Assange? One of the two women that filed claims against him included consent with a condom, but said he later had sex with her without one. (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/08/24/how-is-rape-defined-around-the-world_n_1823272.html half way down the page.)

Prostitution is legal/decriminalised in more or less every civilised country in the world, go find what the laws say for them,

Nah, it was a husband and wife. I think they had a shitload of kids and she didn't want any more and then pressed charges when he refused to wear a condom/took it off or something like that. idk, it doesn't matter much.
>> No. 383423
So you're saying if you can put conditions on saying yes to sex (condom/money/favors etc) then that applies to this hypothetical scenario as well?

I guess in that case it would be some kind of consent issue.
>> No. 383424
Yeah, but pimping is legal in most of those countries, is it? My understanding was that pimps were the guys in charge of street walkers, and even in countries where prostitution was legal, street walking wasn't.

Ehhhhhhhh if that's what it takes to decriminalize prostitution, so be it. But I think that's going overboard.

Prostitutes, deliverymen/mailmen, and NFL players have one thing in common: They primarily use their body. NFL players use it to move a ball and/or smash into each other, mailmen use it to sort, parse, and carry mail, and prostitutes use it for sex. It's this last thing that seems to send everyone a-twitter (or to Twitter.) Especially when done in conjunction with a condom and/or birth control, this is just another physical act but the majority of (American) society treats it as some special act, evangelical or not, when the only big difference is the amount pleasure you get from it. (Yes, there's that whole baby thing involved, but that's only possible in the specific case of sperm in vagina; not all sex acts end with this, and with birth control the chance of babby drops dramatically, so I don't consider it part of the issue.) From an anthropological stand-point, this was probably done by early human societies as a way to stop over-population or, perhaps, health problems from women getting pregnant at older ages. With the birth control we have these days, this is moot.

At least in America, we already have laws to handle any situation. If the prostitute doesn't consent to the act, then it's rape. Otherwise, it falls under the same laws that apply to any other service person that goes unpaid, such as the gardener I mentioned earlier. Creating special, unnecessary laws regarding prostitution just makes things more complicated and would keep the whole industry under a darker cloud than it would already be.

Or, look at it from a different angle: If the gardener doesn't get paid, does the one who commissioned the work get charged with slavery? Either that person gets charged with slavery and the person who fails to pay a prostitute gets charged with rape (at least until they pay up, and then the charges magically vanish,) or neither gets charged with either.

In any case, the moral of the story is to get the payment up front.

>Sex not sacred
Don't be silly. That's like eating or shitting not being sacred. But I guess that's a digression.

It's useful to have precedent, and the court system would probably pick at least one. Personally, I consider the first a breach of contract, and the second is rape if she felt coerced into it and otherwise just sexual harassment in the work place. Then again, I've never met a pimp that didn't advocate coercion.

>> No. 383432
Obviously it's rape regardless, but I meant that defining the type of civil offense it is would benefit from having some specific laws to define what would otherwise be a gray area. Defining whether prostitutes are contractors, for example, and therefore whether failure to pay would be breach of contract or what. A lot of businesses have unique laws dedicated to the civil side of things.

Fucker keep a clean journal!

Repeat this x10:
This is my journal. There are many like it, but this one is mine.

My journal is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life.

My journal, without me, is useless. Without my journal, I am useless. I must write only truth in my journal. I must write more correctly than my rivals who are trying to take my grants. I must outdo them before they beat me. And I will...

My journal and I know that what counts in this battle is not the words we write, the results of our calculations, nor the hypotheses we make. We know that it is the experiment that counts. And we will analyze...

My journal is human, even as I, because it is my life. Thus, I will learn it as a brother. I will learn its weaknesses, its strength, its margins, its accessories, its pens and its paper. I will keep my journal clean and ready, even as I am clean and ready. We will become part of each other. And we will...

Before God, I swear this creed. My journal and I are the defenders of my university. We are the masters of plebs. We are the saviors of life.

So be it, until victory is science and there is no pleb, but peace!

i hear that. there's this amazing artist on tumblr i follow and i adore her art (even if 90% of it is of a character I don't even especially like) and she's 17 and self-taught and sometimes i just browse her art-tag and alternate between swooning and getting angry at myself because if i had worked hard enough when i was younger i could be that good now (maybe). feels bad, man. however it has motivated me to try properly drawing again for the first time since i went to university. maybe i could be that good in 100 years.

something i always loved about bruce was that he was perpetually afraid of running into the one kind of person who he knew could beat him -

a younger, healthier, more naturally gifted version of himself.

but no one is another version of bruce lee. he tried to depict a version of this nemesis in the game of death with kareem, where the only way he could win was by taking advantage of a weakness that was outside of the typical rules of engagement. it wasn't cheating, but it wasn't fighting fair, and that's the point. real fights are life or death.
