  • My dad never fails at showing me how much of an idiot he's become. Even though I'm more than willing to show him how to use the gps app on his phone, he's insists on using a regular gps instead. However, he was perfectly fine with my brother showing him how to use the iPhone he had years ago. There would be a lot less arguments between us if he would simply think, and stop playing favoritism.

    You say you don't want to be tracked or hacked on a credit or debit card but you want to have Google or some other company track where you're going? Also, most GPS apps need internet and most good GPS devices are able to be used offline.
    Because the Lynx browser was made back in 1992, I decided to look up info about the 90s web, and through the EricExperiment, I found this one site called theoldnet.com (which is kind of like the wayback machine). For those of you who remember the 90s web, check it out. Just be aware some sites have broken links.
    One occasionally annoying issue when using LibreWolf (and this isn't their fault) is not being able to access certain sites because they don't offer HTTPS. Even when I list the site as an exception after I click on "accept risk and continue", it still doesn't work. Because of this, I just downloaded the Lynx terminal browser, and I'm going to try it out.

    I'm hesitant to add it. Yes its an extension created by the EFF (an organization I trust), but it mentions it needs to "access your data for all websites, access browser tabs, and access browser activity during navigation". Not to jump to conclusions or anything, but that sounds like spyware to me.
    Though I've admitted I'm not technical-oriented, I've recently developed an interest in learning more about emacs because I heard there are a lot of cool things you can do within it

    I personally have no interest in emacs since vim works fine for me but I recently found out you can also play games using Emacs.

    I saw that video. It'd be interesting to think about emacs being a possible replacement for walled gardens like Steam, but being that I'm just beginning to learn about emacs, I can't say that's a realistic scenario and I don't want to sound like I don't know what I'm talking about.
    I just got into argument with my dad about how I refuse to use a debit or credit card because I don't want Visa or whoever knowing my business, nor do I want a hacker accessing my bank account. Being that he's ignorant old fart who favors convenience over anything else, he acted like I'm making baseless claims about everything I said.
    It turns out this waitress I've been telling you guys about is now a liar. Rather than telling me she did have a boyfriend to my face, she decides to mention it off-handedly in a phone call, and acts like it slipped her mind. While I have no problem with her dating someone else, I do have a problem with her not being completely up-front about everything she says. Now I'm keeping her at arms-length for the time being.

    Mate, sometimes that behaviour could indicate that she still feels presured. I´d just shake it off and walk on.

    I didn't pressure her into anything. I simply told her that the more I've gotten to know her, the more I developed an interest in her. She understood, and thanked me for letting her know. After I calmed down and politely talked to her about this incident, she said "What I said to you in person was before I had a boyfriend." If she said to my face "I'm interested in someone else", that would've been more clear.

    I should also mention she did say on the phone that she does have a few problems with this guy, and her dating him is what's stopping her from dating me. I'm just going to let time run it's course, and whatever does or doesn't happen between us is what it is, especially with the ball being in her court.
    Some of you have been seeing my statuses about this waitress at work I'm interested in. She said she wasn't interested in dating because she's busy with school and work, so I was thinking that finding small ways to show I'm committed could make our relationship work. However, I now realize I wasn't being respectful towards her decision to not date me, and because of that, I've decided to no longer pursue her.
    At work today, I told this waitress I'm interested in "Even if you and I don't end up together, I still want to do what I can to help bring out the best in you, because I see the powerful woman inside." That led to me giving her a book I've had called The Warrior Within, which is about Bruce Lee's philosophy on life. Hopefully that helps her become the best version of herself.

    strange chat up line ! did it work?

    She appreciated it and said she was going to read it tonight when she got home.
    Because I want to help bring out this powerful woman in her, I'm going to work on a drawing of her tonight that depicts her as a samurai slashing a sword. I imagine she'll appreciate that as well.

    I appreciate the link, but its in French, and I don't speak that. I also don't have any interest in learning a new language, because it doesn't apply to my daily life.

    While this is off of the point, I did try my best at learning American Sign Language a few years ago, because my friend at the time was hard of hearing, but I realized I don't have the patience to learn a new language.

    Disc Replay didn't have Walkmans available (that isn't too surprising because they're a thrift store), but Target had a generic one for $18. After I get off of work tomorrow, I'll go over to Disc Replay and try out some tapes (as I'm brand new to using them).

    That Walkman was a piece of crap. I put a tape in and it didn't even play it. Thankfully I got my money back.
    I had to miss work this morning because nausea got the better of me. I must've had something that didn't agree with my stomach. :(

    Thanks for your sympathy. I'm not in the mood for Spongebob right now, but maybe later today

    I'm not vomiting anymore, and I've been sipping Mountain Dew because the syrup's supposed to help combat indigestion
    I *might* go to work this afternoon (maybe around 2:30-3:00), but if they've got someone to cover for me, then I'll stay home

    After texting my assistant manager about my improvements, we agreed that I would take care of going grocery shopping for my parents first, and then come into work at 6 tonight. I'll get significantly less in my next paycheck, but at least I'm making up the hours I missed.
    I recently completed my transition from T-Mobile to Verizon, and I finally upgraded my phone. Rather than going from an old school flip phone to a smartphone, I got a rugged flip phone instead. I haven't had a smartphone since my last one broke around 2018 or so, and being that I don't want or need all of these pointless apps or distractions that comes with having one, I'm happy with my new phone so far.
    I'm switching from T-Mobile to Verizon, and I was attempting to contact customer service to learn if there's any costs aside from getting a new phone and activating it. For some weird reason, I can't access a chat room using LibreWolf, but it works perfectly fine when using FireFox.
    While my mom's always had respiratory problems (partially due to living near the steel mills in Chicago as a child), she recently was admitted to the hospital because of how bad her chronic cough was. She thankfully came home a few minutes ago, but still had a coughing fit because of how dry the air in the hospital was.
    Idk how it is by you, but by me, it seems like the fear of Covid is finally out of people's heads for the most part. What's even more interesting is very few of these stores are giving anyone who's maskless a hard time (probably because the staff are no longer afraid of Covid). Because of this and other reasons, Klaus Schwab's fear of a massive revolt will soon become a reality.
    It turns out that my coworkers were dressing up as the Jersey Shore to parody them, but never bothered to tell me that. Realizing I now made an arse of myself last night, I apologized for my transgressions and we're on good terms again.
    Because Sunday's football day at work, we had a Halloween party tonight instead. Some of the staff decided to go as the Jersey Shore (my guess is they somehow find that filth "entertaining" from how they were talking about it), so in response to that, I repeatedly ripped on them for doing that. Granted, I did hit below the belt to an extent, so now I know where to draw a line.
    Although I've been wanting to get into this for a while now (but work and other distractions keep getting in the way), I'm going to make myself draw cover art and submit it to job boards. Hopefully if I hit home runs with my clients, I'll have consistent business with them, and they'll refer me to anyone they know. (Wishful thinking) it'd be awesome if I was hired by big-name rockstars for one of their future albums.
    Some of my coworkers have been trying to push me to ask this one waitress out, and I told them that I'm not interested in her because of the age difference, among other reasons. However, the more I've gotten to know her, the more I realized that I hesitated expressing my feelings for her. Although I friendzoned her, hopefully she'll understand my opinion of her has changed.

    I have been a toy boy for 46 yrs, [the boss is 10 yrs older than me] age is a number on a bit of paper, understanding and maturity is the key... oh and our daughters husband is over 20 yrs older than she is, and they are happy with their lot... if you dont try you will never know.

    Because the weekends have gotten busier lately, we haven't much time to have meaningful conversations like we used to. Also, because I've had a bad habit of engaging in Nice Guy Syndrome with other women in the past (I'm honest with myself to admit that), it seems as if I might've inadvertently caused her to become emotionally distant from me.
    SpongebobFan1994
    SpongebobFan1994
    After finally telling her how I feel, it turns out why she at times seemed emotionally distant was she's been busy with work and school. Thankfully she told me that even though she's not interested in dating at the moment, she'll let me know if she changes her mind. Tbh, she should only date me if she actually wants to be with me, not because I'm available.
