2020-05-11 at 10:05 PM UTC in The Recovery Thread (The Other TRT)casper srs write a book. Just diary that shit and organize it later. Publish under a psuedonym. Do it and don't tell anyone here. Except for me of course, because I really want to read your book. I feel like you could write the 21st century version of Junkie.

Originally posted by MexicanMasterRace Casper, I genuinely fucking hate talking on the phone. I would rather meet someone face to face than over the phone. Text is fine. But phones are the fucking worst. No time to think and you can't see their face to gauge their response/reaction. I tend to account for this by being overtly nice on the phone when calling insurance and making appointments, idk
"Nope that should do it, thanks so much for your help you've been awesome I hope you have a wonderful day Brittany"
And I do remember their names too because I write everything down when i'm on the phone. I need to say my name? I write my name down. I need to give an account number? I write it down. If it's sensitive I scribble over it before trashing but I need a pen in my hand when I'm on the phone or I get worried about forgetting stuff.
Ditto. I had to make a note of 2 of the physucal therapists today bc im so foggy, ive been there for 2 months now and I still dont remember anyones names. Meghan and Lauren. I think the younger girl might be Mitzy. Ink.
But yeah im the same way. I talked to Cap n someone else last night and my brain just doesnt work right. When i type things it seems like my brain fires more normally. Having to be verbal feels like trying to chop vegetables with my non dominant hand.

Originally posted by Stopffs I just ate pink jiggler jello with my fingers, and for a brief moment taste the life protecting force break like a damnas it forces its way down the black hole and with such a gush, my head it following it. The intense pressure … stuck in the life sucking hole, never to be cradled comfortably warm and safe.
I enjoy jello
2020-05-09 at 11:33 AM UTC in Ineffable reality texturesLast night I was drunk and high and while throwing my guts up due to grill cheese sandwich poisoning, I had a flashback to getting food poisoning after a school play and I realized I was pretty much having an emotionally identical reaction to the point where I wouldn't be able to tell you (at minimum due to vomit blocking my larynx) that there was any difference between me then and now while I was hurling.
There was a feeling of intense struggle and at the same time euphoria as I choked and felt like I was gonna die.

You've seen it and felt it, it's always there, and it means something in the context of your life—of all life, and maybe outside of that too. So something in your perception entails vividly the perception of something else that you can't begin to conceive, let alone communicate. Essential to its character is an ambiguous existential correspondence.
For this example, I'll do my best with the privilege of retrospect. When I was very young, looking at the sky might've provoked a vivid internal experience: in my memory, a portrait of rainbow fish scales, glistening and resonating not unlike the lazy hum of Tibetan singing bowls shining under a high coastal sun. I immediately recognized this to be the ethereal flavor of my childhood consciousness, and I always had the intuition that it was impermanent.
I've come to like calling it early semantic processing signification, as my working hunch is that this is a normal and deceptively simple presentation of a semantic childhood synesthesia which perhaps renders fluidly its most basic concept.
Please describe yours in as much detail as possible. We have a phenomenological opportunity here to situate our naughtiest, most elusive qualia in a context of gnosis and your neglect won't be forgiven.
And of course, if you can in any way simplify this for me, expose an error, or point me to wherever in the world this is a studied phenomenon, please share.

Originally posted by Grylls Hit the Go button on the right, then it should come up with a random nickname, if you play around with it eventually you'll get it
Well yeah it's not complicated to "get into to" it took me 5 seconds. It's just dumb looking. All of it. No appeal that would draw me to CHAT there instead of just posting here.

2020-05-08 at 6:32 PM UTC in Let’s see what really happened, shall weI mean i wouldnt mind being on a jury. I think im a pretty good Decider a la George W. But having to drive out to bumfuck nowhere for an indeterminate amt of time, to getpaid very little, and have to sit around in uncomfortable dress clothes...is bullshit. Pay me my normal piddly hourly wage, order me some Thai food and let me wear my pajamas and we’re good.

Originally posted by Wariat why would i register a company and waste the time and energy to od this and money when i dont even know if i want to commit yet or if it will even be profitable?
You just keep track of all the money you get and if you make over a certain amount at the end of the year you report that income and pay whatever you owe to the government. I've known people that made thousands of dollars dog walking and they didnt want to get fucked over because they were advertising a lot and just wanted to make sure everything was legit.
I don't think you have to report it unless you start making the big bucks.

Originally posted by Stopffs Sure .. if it were totally horrible I could just off myself later.
Will the long term effects of the covid-19 bullshit negatively impact your personal lifestyle for a year or more?
I'm actually a legit hermit and radical introvert, so one would think that COVID wouldn't affect my mental state at all...
But for some reason it does.
I'm used to having the option of hitting up a bar once in a while to get some human interaction, but I can't even do that.
What if the aliens explicitly mention that they are taking you back to their planet to be a sex slave?
2020-05-08 at 1:58 PM UTC in Let’s see what really happened, shall weIt’ll be interesting to see how this plays out. I’m sure it’ll drag on for awhile, especially with this pandemic.
