Time to get reamed by healthcare! Lyme Patient Edition

I’m not going to talk about promises made, or private insurance for entrepreneurs and small business owners, or anything like that.

I’m going to talk about our particular plan, from Forrest’s place of business, and how we’re utterly screwed next year because of it.  He works at a decent company that’s been fairly awesome about [...]

YGTBFKM, personal edition. (language warning – as if you didn’t see that coming)

[Before you read this:  There are so many more people that have been awesome to me this year, and in years past, than there ever have been assholes.  That may be why the assholes stand out so much.  Being that they stand out, they annoy me greatly.  If I've ever fussed at you, but I'm [...]

You broke it, you bought it.

So Starbucks has said that they would like for gun owners to NOT carry in stores, any more.  This is following one of the stupidest fights I’ve seen people get into in the 6-ish years I’ve been a part of the “gun owner” demographic.

From The Practical Tactical Podcast:

One internet poster said: “I never [...]

Congratulations, [alma mater]! Here are five reasons why I will never attend your school, again!

Dear [alma mater] Career Services, specifically C. R. [edited from original Facebook post, because this is public - I'm airing a grievance, not trying to get someone fired]:

Sending an email entitled “Congratulations Graduate! Eleven Reasons Why I Will Never Hire You.” and introducing that as an article/discussion point in the forum is a terrible [...]

What the hell is wrong with kids these days?

Okay, so knowing one of the teens involved, I have this to say about her:  she’s smart, she’s got talent, she’s very pretty, and she’s stronger than she thinks.

Yet she participates in shit like this (she’s the “sharer,” so I whited out her name and photo, along with he name and photo in the [...]

Don’t cross me, Internet.

It’s been one of THOSE days.

The days where you’re awakened by a phone call with bad news (even if it’s an answer you’ve been waiting for…it’s never fun to be told that your thyroid and hypothalamus have both just stopped giving a shit with regard to your T3 levels, and that your adrenal glands [...]

Please pass this around. Make people aware. This should not happen, EVER.

A young man with Down’s syndrome in Maryland wanted to sit through another showing of a movie.  Rather than either asking him to leave, or leaving him alone (seriously, he sits through another showing, what happens?  It’s likely his companion would have gotten him out of there, anyway), the theater calls in some security guards [...]

YGTBKM – I’m about to get curse-tastic up in here.

I just learned from Breda’s Facebook (trademark pending) that there’s a New Jersey school implementing a “no cursing” rule for female students.  The males, however, have simply been asked to abstain from cursing when females are near.

Allow me to quote from “The Birdcage”:

Val:  “Are you upset?”

Armand:  “…and let me tell you why.”

[...]

Call and response.

Someone who used to be a very dear friend of mine posted the following in a public forum, this morning (I broke it up because it was a giant wall of text…I guess for impact purposes):

Last night I was down in the city with my fiance and his mother and stepdad, who are visiting [...]

PUUUUUUUUKE-TASTIC. (Paxil update)

Anxiety; blurred vision; constipation; decreased sexual desire or ability; diarrhea; dizziness; drowsiness; dry mouth; gas; increased sweating; increased urination; loss of appetite; nausea; nervousness; numbness or tingling of the skin; stomach upset; trouble sleeping; weakness; yawning.

The yawning is [...]
