  1. this site is a place where anything goes, but bookface is a different fish

    banned for the 3 days for posting this a few days ago, was informed of the sentence today I'm absolutely certain this was done without any idiot at their organization reading the post, they just saw a klansmen and boom, banned this has happened before, I once made a post about how college athletes are basically treated like slaves because none of them make any money and universities make billions off of them here in the USA, but I included and image of a slavery era plantation, and boom,...
  2. slow and steady wins the race

    180 something is what I'm shooting for, but it is getting harder and I know that when I get back to China all the street food is going to call to me, but I'll face that struggle when it comes...
  3. Picking at Scabs

    When you live long enough and have taken a few risks, you’re bound to wind up with scabs on your heart and soul. Scabs that fairly effectively hold the gashes, and the broken pieces, together. Scabs that show the efforts of the universe to heal you back into a functioning person. Scabs that camouflage the moments of solitary desperation and hopelessness, that feel as if they’ll tick on for an eternity. And when you’re brave enough you may choose to reach out, slide a nail under an edge and...
  4. I know its just a number

    but I must feel a bit like Chuck Yeager did when he broke the sound barrier :cool: been decades since I've been under 200 pounds and to do it while under the stress of interviewing and now all the shit that goes with getting a work visa to china? remarkable I'd say, what's so different from all the times before is knowing myself so well, the part of me that wants to overeat, spend money on shit I don't need, argue with my asshole relatives, drink or whatever, he's just not as smart as I...
  5. back on track and it feels right

    after the real estate detour I find myself embarking on what I was meant to do a year ago, should be back in China by the end of summer. likely sooner :guitar: getting more interviews than expected at my age, perhaps China is coming to appreciate that its good to have at least one older experienced teacher on your staff of Westerners? :cool: UPDATE: 1st interview, got job if want it, but pay not so good and don't like location so much 2nd interview, the guy who would be my boss seems cool,...
  6. On the occasion of surviving a year on Morrissey Solo

    Reflecting back to when I decided to join Solo and I’m not so sure that much thought went into it. The days leading up to it are a blur. I had just come home from the hospital after having had surgery that gave me another chance for life. Blissfully, I was on amazing drugs that not so much deadened the pain but made sure I didn’t care. I also was terribly lonely cooped up in my bed in a corner of my house surrounded by a late winter storm. The world outside continued on without skipping a...
  7. how not to lose weight

    this aint rocket science, but made one change from 2 weeks ago, ive been having a can of soda on average once a day and boom! like that weight loss gone, that black sugary death, its my bane and oh yeah, just for an extra emphasis by body has been telling me not to have any of that shit my giving me stomach pains late in the night the last few days, but lesson learned, again! ps: ok, so I did have one ridiculously rich and calorie filled meal in these last 2 weeks, but I can think thats ok...
  8. 80 pages in, 800 more to go

    this guy, long books that are so hard to put down, thankfully, he's broken it up into 3 sections, gonna take advantage of that for once so I don't burn through them as I have so many of his others :cool:
  9. oh yeah, almost forgot

    what I actually came here today for, not to waste time with racist incels who now, basically, drive content here anyways, its been a long road, but goal weight #1, 200, is within sight, everything else after that I'll consider a bonus, though I've no reason to think I'll stop losing weight once I reach it, unless I start eating at night again or loading up on sugar, these things and standing even when I could sit are the constants in this current drive to lose weight...
  10. Bernie

    I feel obligated to vote for him, especially after the despicable behavior of tbe DNC & HRC :mad: however, id really prefer a Prez under 50 who's not some corrupt neoliberal hack like most of the rest of the Dems current field is, is that too much to ask? worse yet, if its not him, then its gonna be the Dems putting up some turd like Biden, Harris, Booker, Warren even who trump will all kill in a re-election bid so yeah, there is a way through, he gets the nomination, chooses somebody like...
  11. weight battle

    ok, its not much of a loss, but better than going up :cool:
  12. Things I've learned this bitter endless winter & FU Camus

    1. Scarves are your friend 2. When falling on ice, dont fall on your face, elbow, knees, back even, whatever it takes, especially when wearing your glasses, strike that, just don’t wear your glasses outside if at all possible, sure, they help with the whiteout, but man they hurt when they drive back up into your face 3. Know where your cap is at all times, especially when Ray is around(he loves to take it), the cold is a bald man’s mortal enemy 4. Clean clothes are nice, but 3 layers are...
  13. Todays kudos and non-kudos

    Kudos to the guy at Pasco Rentals guy that cleaned the sidewalk out on Court Street of tons of snow and was doing more of the street til the cops stopped him Non kudos to the pigs and the city for stopping people from doing what they clearly dont care to do & filling the void made by them, this is where were at people Kudos to the guy with NBA player size feet who trod the path in front of me along the highway, without his holes to high step into in the snow I doubt I could have made it...
