I figure we definitely need one of these threads. Anything bothering you? Need to talk about something or get something off your chest? Post it here.

Actually, I've been feeling better since posting this on JPL's blow-off-steam:
"So, I've been extremely bored. Not angry, not quite upset, just bored. Everything I do feels routine, nothing new happens, and I just want to stop wasting the 5,029 days I've gathered in my life. The only thing that keeps me moderately happy is hanging out with my crush and adding to my JP toy collection."

I basically wanted change in my life. And 4 hours later I got my answer, Jplegacy's closure announcement. It definitely wasn't the change I was hoping for, but whatever. And this morning my mom got into a car accident, (she's fine) and the car might be totaled. It's nice to actually feel emotion for once.

I work in retail and I'm praying for the day people finally get to hint to put sh*t back from where they or their kids got it. They need to realize it's not their home.

My mom worked in a grocery store for 25 years, and she would always tell me to put (insert food item here) wherever I picked it up. It's just habit for me now.

Not a huge deal, but I really don't want to lose touch with some of the people from JPLegacy. The people that frequented the off-topic section in particular hold a special place in my heart.

I hadn't really been frequenting the site in about a month or so, and, with the news of JPL going down, I decided to revisit some of the threads I normally frequented, including the "Blow off steam" thread. Upon scanning what I had missed, I saw that a lot of people who I consider to be friends were going through some terrible things, and I felt immediately guilty for not being there to offer my support. I just...hope that those people can make their way here.

I don't mean to cause a riot or upset. But I'm still extremely devastated over the the loss of JPL. I've actually cried about it. I have autism and you guys are really just about all I have. But on to something even worse.

My best friends nephew was born a few weeks ago with a heart condition. Doctors confirmed there is absolutely no saving him at this point and it'll be a matter of him slipping away peacefully. This day the whole world really is crashing down on me it seems.

Oh and the baby's name was Owen.... Makes me even sadder Crying or Very sad

As are we all Troyal. The best thing we can do for now is move on and celebrate new beginnings. This is a fresh start for us all. Enjoy the time now and remember the good times.

And it gets worse. After these 2 events, I've been told that I am not aloud to participate in any end-year events, and my crush is moving to Australia for 6 months. I know I asked for change, but Dang, slow down life, you can't happen all at once.

A few days ago, my dad received a call at work and heard a girl screaming claiming it was my sister. He knew the voice wasn't hers but someone else took the phone from the girl claiming they had my sister and wanted a ransom. It was one of those fake kidnapping phone calls and thankfully he didn't fall for it. The question however, is how the hell did they know my dad and sister's name and get my dad's number? My brother in law filed a police report and they said it had to be someone we know.

My sister and I suspect it's her ex-boyfriend's girlfriend. Ever since my sister dumped that loser, his new girlfriend has constantly made fun of my sister with her sisters and mom joining in on the bashing. She acts like my sister wants that idiot back and is trying to take him away from her. Then she goes around posting that "some people" (my sister) try to copy her style when it's the other way around. My sister isn't even causing her trouble, it's not her fault she and the guy dated before that psycho did. Plus, my sister's ex apparently shared some secrets that were between him and my sister which only makes it worse. She constantly posts in all caps making indirect remarks while posting trying to pass herself off as some kind of angel. That bitch is unbalanced and I know she's gone through his phone, likely finding our numbers. Weeks back we got a call home from some girl we didn't know asking for my sister; now we think it was her. She even knows where we live and the cars we drive. She has issues.

She lives in my sister's shadow, using the same make up and hairstyle because she can't get over the fact that the chump she's with was still obsessing over my sister like a lost pup.

I found out stuff like this has happened a lot before to other people from New York to Mexico. Someone once called my cousin claiming they had his niece and wanted money for her return. People go through phone books or other means of obtaining numbers and call someone making them think they kidnapped someone from their family.

My cousin: Go **** yourself, she's right here in front of me.
Caller: .... *hangs up*

Holy crap Prowler, I'm sorry man.

As for how that can happen, I'd suggest Googling yourself sometime. Sites have phone numbers, addresses, persons related, just from easily accessed public information. And due to automated crap, it's hard as hell to get it off those sites.

In matter of fact....

Just few days ago, my home phone got a call from the sheriff's office of a different county! tongue

They apologized for calling the wrong number of course, but it makes me wonder if someone randomly gave the cops my home phone number in order to throw them off. Either that or their resource manager at their department sucks at doing his/hers job.

Damn!
Well, I have a few.

1. When I was 10, my dog Scout died of old age. Now a year ago, my family got a new puppy, and my little brother has been loving on her nonstop. It just really pisses me off seeing that because the first real friend I've ever known is gone and I can no longer feel the same love and affection that my brother and our new dog have. It's just made me really bitter and sometimes at night, I cry at the thought of this. Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad

2. So in my Judo class, there's this one kid named Gabe who's bigger than me and when we fight and he beats me, he tends to taunt me like "I can do this all day" and all that. Now, he has Autism, and the other people say "Oh, he has special needs" or "He doesn't know what he's saying". So before you call me heartless, here's why this really irritates me. I'm also on the Autism spectrum, Asperger's to be precise, and  I've NEVER used that as an excuse and have taken full responsibility to whatever mistakes I have made. So, having to go through a ton of hard work and not using that excuse, only to have someone else try and use it for themselves or have people dismiss what they've done because of that really, REALLY pisses me off.

I HATE THOSE TYPE OF PPL. They're obsessed with you and won't leave until you're dead or whatever. I'm really sorry your sister had to face this. If it's my sister, I don't care whoever is doing that, I give a warn to stop messing with her, if the scumbag keeps doing that, I surelly would be in jail.

I got called once with this fake kiddnap stuff, the crimminal said it had my daugher, well, I have NO daugher so I just hang up.

If that ***** keeps doing that, call the police.

Holy crap Prowler, that sucks so much I can't even think of the words that would properly describe how terrible of a situation that must be for your sister.

All I can say besides I'm sorry that is happening to your family is the police (or a higher governmental authority at least) need to be informed about the situation immediately. That sort of behavior is legitimately psychotic, and should be considered very dangerous. Try to get as many legal barriers between her and your family (especially your sister) as possible, and if she even so much as twitches an eye at anyone in your family press charges. You need to nip that pup in the butt as hard as possible, because if that kind of nut job is left relatively free to do what she wants it can very well end badly.

Yeah call the police, let them know.


Anyway, this stuff only proofs humanity sucks and I just can't deal with it. Everyday something makes me even more bad and depressed. The fact that some meatbags exist just to make the world a shitty place...

That's what happens when you have 7 billion (and increasing) people all shoved together on the same small planet. You get nut jobs, idiots, and overall craptastic individuals who ruin things for the rest of us poor punks that are forced to live with them. I've always been a huge proponent to furthering our investment in space travel/colonization as a species, simply so we can cut down on the number of people we have living on Earth (and so I can get away from all the bull**** terrible people have to offer).

The problem with that is that the police need proof and that they can't arrest someone because of online bashing or indirect comments that don't mention my sister by name. Either way, the psycho could likely just have a twisted sense of humor knowing her considering the way she posts. My sister is safe for the most part as she lives in another state since she moved with her fiance-now-husband.  He's a much better guy than the loser she was with before. I just wouldn't put it past her if she was involved in that call.

I think ppl should stop reproducing, seriously (that doesn't mean I'm in favor of mass genocide). There's a lot of ppl having 6, 7 sons. And most of them are from poor areas. I never understood, if you can't even keep yourself, why would you have kids if you can't give them propper quality of life?  They should only have 1, max. I read a prediction that said by 2020 we can have 9 billion of ppl in the planet. That's species overpopulation. Everything in nature needs to be in balance, or chaos will happen. The resources are already not enough for 7 billion, the planet can't support more.

I don't want to have a son, to put another person in this world and probably face the worst. Also, if the space colonization happens while I'm alive, I won't have the pleasure to join in, since I won't have enough money. First thing I would do if I had power is send ALL the productive scientists to this new civilization. If you have the oportunity to escape, do it. Maybe, if I'm useful scientist in the future, I can do something.

Funny enough, as I'm someone with a great fear of death, the poverty issue is one reason why I sort of hope that any drugs or anything found to extend life doesn't eventually happen. I think everyone would deserve to stay alive and healthy longer, but I'd absolutely bet it'd be either kept secret or only given to those with wealth and power, and that'd cause a whole of host of its own problems.

Im not saying arrest her, and like you said they cant do anything over online bashing, but keep them informed so if something does happen IRL they know there is a history of bad behavior from the nut job.

Im glad your sister is physically far from her, as that does dramatically lower the risk of danger, and Im glad she is with a much better person. Just remember to tread on an air of caution, as she sounds like real trouble.

You get nut jobs, idiots, and overall craptastic individuals who ruin things for the rest of us poor punks that are forced to live with them. I've always been a huge proponent to furthering our investment in space travel/colonization as a species, simply so we can cut down on the number of people we have living on Earth (and so I can get away from all the bull**** terrible people have to offer).

I think ppl should stop reproducing, seriously (that doesn't mean I'm in favor of mass genocide). There's a lot of ppl having 6, 7 sons. And most of them are from poor areas. I never understood, if you can't even keep yourself, why would you have kids if you can't give them propper quality of life?  They should only have 1, max. I read a prediction that said by 2020 we can have 9 billion of ppl in the planet. That's species overpopulation. Everything in nature needs to be in balance, or chaos will happen. The resources are already not enough for 7 billion, the planet can't support more.

I don't want to have a son, to put another person in this world and probably face the worst. Also, if the space colonization happens while I'm alive, I won't have the pleasure to join in, since I won't have enough money. First thing I would do if I had power is send ALL the productive scientists to this new civilization. If you have the oportunity to escape, do it. Maybe, if I'm useful scientist in the future, I can do something.

Funny enough, as I'm someone with a great fear of death,  the poverty issue is one reason why I sort of hope that any drugs or anything found to extend life doesn't eventually  happen. I think everyone would deserve to stay alive and healthy longer, but I'd absolutely bet it'd be either kept secret or only given to those with wealth and power, and that'd cause a whole of host of its own problems.

Surelly just the rich would get the hands on it.  I'm not saying all rich ppl are bad, of course not, but there's a lot of rich dudes that don't deserve to get the hands on something so great just bc they have money. Unfortunatelly the world is driven by money, but again, if I had the power to choose a "group", I would choose scientists and ppl that really make the difference to a better world(rich or not).

The problem with that is that the police need proof and that they can't arrest someone because of online bashing or indirect comments that don't mention my sister by name. Either way, the psycho could likely just have a twisted sense of humor knowing her considering the way she posts. My sister is safe for the most part as she lives in another state since she moved with her fiance-now-husband.  He's a much better guy than the loser she was with before. I just wouldn't put it past her if she was involved in that call.

Im not saying arrest her, and like you said they cant do anything over online bashing, but keep them informed so if something does happen IRL they know there is a history of bad behavior from the nut job.

Im glad your sister is physically far from her, as that does dramatically lower the risk of danger, and Im glad she is with a much better person. Just remember to tread on an air of caution, as she sounds like real trouble.

Not to worry, I'm always cautious and stick to public areas with one ear out. Still, I'd like it if my sister was still the fighter she was back then. She took martial arts before I did and was one rank away from her black belt. She and a friend of hers were jumped by 5 other girls in middle school. While they were pulling hair, my sister was giving throwing lefts and rights.

I appreciate the concern you guys, this is something I really had to get off my chest.

A few days ago, my dad received a call at work and heard a girl screaming claiming it was my sister. He knew the voice wasn't hers but someone else took the phone from the girl claiming they had my sister and wanted a ransom.

My brother in law filed a police report and they said it had to be someone we know.

My sister and I suspect it's her ex-boyfriend's girlfriend. Ever since my sister dumped that loser, his new girlfriend has constantly made fun of my sister with her sisters and mom joining in on the bashing. She acts like my sister wants that idiot back and is trying to take him away from her. Then she goes around posting that "some people" (my sister) try to copy her style when it's the other way around. My sister isn't even causing her trouble, it's not her fault she and the guy dated before that psycho did. Plus, my sister's ex apparently shared some secrets that were between him and my sister which only makes it worse. She constantly posts in all caps making indirect remarks while posting trying to pass herself off as some kind of angel. That bitch is unbalanced and I know she's gone through his phone, likely finding our numbers. Weeks back we got a call home from some girl we didn't know asking for my sister; now we think it was her. She even knows where we live and the cars we drive. She has issues.

She lives in my sister's shadow, using the same make up and hairstyle because she can't get over the fact that the chump she's with was still obsessing over my sister like a lost pup.


Police unfortunately cannot do anything without hard evidence.  You can suspect it is that person, but unless you have some kind of concrete evidence for it that is in fact this girl, they can't do much in regards to mild harassment charges.

I agree with TDM.  You will be surprised what scammers can find on the internet.  My grandma got similar calls, saying my cousin (yes, using a real name of my cousin) got into a car accident and needed a loan of a couple thousand dollars.  Scammers are everywhere.


As for myself, honestly, I can attest to what a terrible significant other can do to you.

The worst part is, it goes through several websites, so even if you get it off the first search result, chances are other sites have picked it up by now and have similar information. Eventually you are clicking through virus alerts and other shady bullcrap and it's just not coming off. At the end of the day you have to keep an eye on what is yours, and know things are bad out there.

Thanks, man, so far nothing else has happened since that phone call.

And, Captain, I'm very sorry for what you had to go through. If you ever feel like you need a confidence boost, consider martial arts. It's helped me out as a kid and it's helped me again.

Gojira2014, sorry about your dog. I was always attached to my grandparents' dog as a kid until he passed away. I was told he was given to a friend of theirs and moved until I was told some years later that he died. It's never easy to let go. As for Judo class, what's the instructor like? Is he always keeping an eye out? My instructor has his eyes and ears everywhere because 3 of the 4 walls are all mirrors and he usually has 1-3 other instructors with him.

@Spino4.4, do you go to school? Thats pretty much unpaid work IMO. Even if you dont so long as you are trying to grt a job/do something with yourself you are not usless.

On a less serious note, I am so sick and tired of hearing people (especially my teachers) call Jurassic World "horrible", "the absolute worst", and "a really s***ty movie". I get not everyone has the same tastes, but Jurassic World is far from the worst thing out there. There are massive amounts of movies that are faaaaaar more worse movies than JW.

JW is a good movie. Perfect? No not at all. Great, subjective. But it has clear direction, it knows what it is, and it as fun sequell that knows it cant beat JP so it pays respect to its heritage and goes down its own path. Its like people, especially film makers, seem to really dump on it hard simply for the sake of sounding pretentious.

Again, people can hate it. Its fine, everyone has a right to their own tastes. But be reasonable and really put things in perspective before spouting off words for the sake of being dramatic.

For the past 3 years, I've smoked and drank to help cope with my depression and anxiety. Now I feel like the only times I am happy are when I'm drunk or high. Or both.

I finished school. I think it's called High School there. I now need to go to university. I want to study biology, but I'm too dumb to pass the test and enter university. I'm feeling horrible. I think I'll never ever enter and not be scientist.

I'm doing nothing. I spend 24hs on the PC.

I can relate to this all too well. I'm sorry Sad, I have a few completely legal addictions. They may be prescribed by doctors but they are still addicting. I too, find that I'm not happy at all when I'm not on a substance. It's a bad trap to get into. 

On another note, I'm having my sleep study on the 17th. Very worried. Apparently the drugs the doctor prescribed may be cross tolerant with what I already take. So they might not even help me sleep that night. The nurse called and she said she "thinks" it will be fine. But I'm calling back to speak to the doctor first hand. They're probably gonna think I'm a nut and get frustrated with me lol. Really nervous.

Also, I just hate science deniers. I'm so fucking tired to read a bunch of ignorant neanderthalensis IQ meatbags  write comments in internet saying stuff like "Huh and scientists talk about that Big Bang bullshit lmao And ppl still belive in it lmao" or "Evolution is bs, only God can create something so perfect"...

It's so easy to deny science while using a computer, eletricity and internet to write those crappy comments. It's so easy to say it's bullshit and you don't belive in it, but no one wants to prove scientists wrong, right? No one has evidences or write an scientific articles proving scientists wrong. But they still have inflated egos to act like they know MORE than scientists about a subject that requires a lot of studying to understand. I mean, sure, an useless meatbag like you that don't have a PHD or didn't even read the basic of Big Bang theory for example, knows more than ALL the scientific academy, right?

Not to mention, their fairth is so fragile, and their ego is so big to think they're important for the universe, that they became offended by science. You can acept science and still belive in God. And if you don't belive in God, you can still acept science too. That's what an inteligent person do.

And it's not about "belive" or have "fairth" in science. Science works with evidence. If you belive in evolution or not, that doesn't matter, bc evolution happens, acepting you or not. There's enough evidence there to prove that evolution is most certain a fact. But of course, if scientists find an evidence that proves evolution wrong, I'll accept it. But it's not saying "Evolution is bs" that you'll debunk a scientific theory (Theory in science doesn't mean hypothesis).

I'm really sorry if I'm getting over the top, but this stuff makes me mad as hell. No one likes scientists, bc they tell you the truth and reality about the world we live, and truth hurts. I just think there's a lot of scientists working out there to make the world a better place for us, and they don't get recognized bc of those bastards that do nothing for the world and think they know all or are too dumb to find answers and just say "God made it and it's perfect"...

To quote someone (I think it's Carl Sagan): "I don't want to belive, I want to know".

I passed freshman year, I think. I checked my grades and it's all passing, but the thing is the credits is what determines it and I'm scared I didnt get enough to advance (I got eight, but I failed a class last year and didnt get credit, not to mention I'm taking a class I dont get credit for (IB Mentoring), so I'm just hoping I did (since the class I failed gave me a whole credit where everything else is a .5).
