6 weeks in the same cast

John Smith 16/09/28(Wed)06:18 No. 45653

What got you that nasty cast, my dear boy?

John Smith 16/09/28(Wed)14:30 No. 45654

I guess it's mostly from stepping on it on the street.

Hello John,

I must say that image you posted does not seem very good. Not bad, but not good. I'd recommend buying a toothbrush and using isotropic alcohol to wash the foot. alcohol evaporates fast, kills bacteria, and helps break down dead skin. I recommend a bottle in every house, a very dependable chemical

sincerely John

Next week I'm going on a date with a girl way out of my league. She texted me, says that she thinks I'm pretty and so on, and I don't think this is some cruel joke she's playing on me (she seems a nice person) but I'm scared.
Answer me John, what should I do to not feel scared?

The term "first date" usually refers not to your absolute first date but the first with you and a particular other person. Someone who has dated 3 people has gone on 3 first dates, for instance.

With that in mind, I stand by what I said in >>45635 about how to more effortlessly be yourself. Since we live in the age of the Internet you can also research the particular woman that you plan to go on a date with. If nothing else that undercuts the power of your most common fear, the fear of the unknown.

>The term "first date" usually refers not to your absolute first
You should treat every date like a first date. If you're not bringing your AAA game every time how do expect to achieve your goal. Whether it be sex, marriage or kids, if you slack of early you could fall short and end up with nothing but wasted effort.

John Smith 16/09/20(Tue)19:53 No. 45640

I disagree John.

Surely, for the first date you have to make a good impression; and maybe for the next couple of dates after you should be the best "you" that you can be, but at some point--if the relationship is something you intend to pursue long-term--you'll have to confront her with your real self. I'm not saying to do it all at once, but she's going to have to see you for the person you are most comfortable being--faults, uninteresting hobbies, and ugliness included.

I put star anise in my morning tea. I think it is quite refreshing.

It also works well in cigarettes.

Do you do anything to spice up your morning tea/coffee, John?

black coffee.. or peppermint tee. everything else is degeneracy

Why are you so judgemental about beverages?

John Smith 16/09/13(Tue)06:11 No. 45623

Dear John,

You'll have to excuse my esteemed colleague John, who appears to have recently discovered the term "degenerate" and all its inflected and derived forms. Do not be alarmed, for my experience shows that such fascination is temporary. Such levels of passion are hard to sustain forever.

Sometimes I think of what it would be like to be a water molecule. Think about how cool it would be to cycle all around the earth, getting sucked up through plants, eaten and drank by animals, snowed on mountains, flowed through rivers and oceans, maybe meet my death in a chemical reaction somewhere in a neuron of someone's brain as he writes a post online on a board about uninteresting conversation.

Then I think about how interesting it would be to be a massive configuration of atoms that will never exist again, that has a unique collection of memories, ideas, and identity. How I could cycle all around the earth, getting taken in by the culture, eat and drink with strangers, see snow covered mountains, swim through rivers and oceans, yet it seems day after day that I find myself posting online doing nothing to achieve these things. Everyday that I remind myself of this is another step towards being the human I want to be.

I'm going to New Orleans for five days next week. I've never been there before and I don't really have any plans. I guess Ill probably eat some food and drink some alcohol, but I already do that at home.

John Smith 16/09/11(Sun)07:33 No. 45616

I hear that the state of Louisiana is home to different kinds of foods. That can give you something to explore while you're there, especially if you plan to eat food anyway.

It's certainly a simpler plan than trying to crash a funeral procession just to listen to the band.

I've had a tiny moth living in my room for almost a year. He usually just sat on the wall next to me while I was on the computer. I found him today though, and he had passed away. It actually make me sad.

Best Wishes ,

This is exactly why I stopped naming insects.

How old do moths get?

Anyways, rest in peace

I remember watching an episode of Phineas and Ferb in July 2013 sitting on the sofa. 2013 was a disappointing year.

I watched an episode of Phineas and Ferb a couple years ago as well. The show is essentially the same tired kids show cliche as ever. Animation is average. Writing is average. Voice acting average.

I saw the episode where the villan was trying to get the entire tri-state area addicted to his hot chocolate. Perry the Platypus saved them.

5/10 particularly average cartoon

Now recently I've been powering through duelist kingdom and let me tell you YuGiOh season 1 is actually superb.

John Smith 16/08/31(Wed)07:12 No. 45577

I feel the need to defend formulaic cartoons. I grew up watching Tom and Jerry, and Wile E. Coyote chasing the Roadrunner, and enjoyed those experiences. The basic premises weren't challenging, nor were they meant to be. They were familiar and comforting, rewarding the parts of my brain that like to recognize patterns. It's the unique executions of those patterns that made the experience worthwhile. The same can be said for the stock characters of commedia dell'arte or the well-worn chord changes unique to many musical genres.

There's a place for routine; it isn't inherently bad.

John Smith 16/09/08(Thu)02:06 No. 45594

I never did like Phineas and Ferb. I remember growing up as a kid I frowned upon the Disney channel.

Dear John

I know you are a very pragmatic non bullshit person, but just wrap your head around this.
Somewhere there is a planet, where we sit together in my old apartment in stuttgart and enjoy a cup of tea, reminiscing about the old times.

May our paths intertwine in our next lives.

Yours truly,

John Smith 16/09/05(Mon)00:57 No. 45589

>May our paths intertwine in our next lives.

Thank you, John.

Dear John

Have you been doing sports lately?
I just came home from the gym, i did something for my back and jogged for 25 minutes.

Best regards,

I've been digging a large hole last week at work.
It's roughly 4 meters wide, 2.3 meters long and 2.90 meters deep.
It's been, admittedly, a moderately enjoyable project.
My core, legs, arms, hands, my whole body (to cut the list short) has grown in strength.
I prefer to workout by means of physical labour.

John Smith 16/09/01(Thu)11:22 No. 45580

I wish John. I have injured my back and cannot train at all for the next two weeks. I am dreading the lack of endorphins. But I will say, two weeks of complete recovery sounds quite nice.

Regards, John

John Smith 16/09/04(Sun)23:41 No. 45587

May you be blessed with beautiful ferns John.

Sometimes it is actually good to take a step back in life.
Same goes for working out, let your body rest and go for it even harder when your back is all well again.
