Being married to an Italian - I can certainly say it explains a lot. ;)

Yes, I am Italian, which is one reason I am insanely awesome.

She was a diva and a princess, and probably the closest I ever was to a dog. I've been lucky with dogs - but she stands apart. It was terrible to lose her, and she did not live as long as she should have. It is why I understand you sleeping on the floor with your pup when it was sick. I've done the same.

its why she ran so far. to get the hell out of there.  "im freeeeee suckers.  cya"

Good she found you guys, and then her new home with a pack to be with.   A decent life instead of what she had.

So, we found out she had a chip, it was never registered, called the people who put the chip in, they figured out the owner and gave me his number. About this time, I noticed a frayed nylon rope around her neck. 


Called the owner, and he lived WAY out, 25 miles away, in a very Hispanic neighborhood - chainlink fences around every house, pitbulls running the streets - I used to score weed there when I was a kid. I could imagine the bare dirt yard she was staked to a rope in the middle of, patchy overgrown weeds at the fringes. He answered, and sounded like a cliche - one of those "stereotypes exist for a reason," confirmations.

I was married to a woman of Italian and German descent. 

I am of irish/polish/slovak/hungarian descent.

Seeing as how one side of this setup is responsible for starting two World Wars, I don't go around scratching my head wondering why it did not work out.

Yeah... everybody is worried about the Muslims and the Chinese and Russians. 

I say we keep a close eye on the krauts. They're troublemakers.

I tend to end up on YouTube when im bored. 

Either random videos from my subscriptions or looking for new-to-me music that i might like.  YT has been a wonderful thing for people who like alternative music but don't live in the right areas.

I second that. I flushed Facefckbook months ago and have not looked back. I think they have assigned a human rather than a script to my case of leaving because of how much organic content I contributed for FREE. Someone once taught me that one of the greatest innate fears homosapiens have is the fear of being eaten, and eaten alive. I worked at Blockbuster video in the 90s and I can validate that because there were more horror movies that revolved around the topic of humans being eaten alive (Jaws, anyone?) than movies about serial killers. 

 

so WAKE UP. If you feed Facefukcbook, you are in a way, salt and peppering the steak of your own soul to be eaten alive. 

My analogy is dramatic and graphic, but very accurate.

Stop feeding a machine built to destroy you.

I'd hope that boredom might inspire you to figure out new ways to do the most difficult task sysops have always faced: attract users to contribute their content in your forum.

 

Its harder for us. We invented content contribution and it has been stolen from us. Get it back.

Are we going to be a dent in fecesbooks user base? Hell no. We just need to convince like minded people that we have something worth looking at and it cannot be found elsewhere.

Yeah.. all my other diversions have been boring me, too. I've just had a level of apathy recently... Facebook is a great destination for the apathetic.

I avoid Youtube, and other sites owned by The Enemy, like the plague.

When I am bored at a computer I usually pop out a coffee-break game or visit certain jokes site. Sadly it is not in English, so not worth sharing.

I agree with the sentiment. However, my deepest fear is something happening to my horses, not me being eaten alive.

Also, I am not an horror fan. For one, it looks like they have a hard time making horror films that are any good - instead of feast of gore with no plot or tension. It is like the foundain of good ideas got dry around the 70s or 80s.

Stephen King wrote some pretty entertaining books when he was spun out on coke. 

Then he got sober and started letting Tabitha use his name as a pen-name for Pro-Feminist screeds.

I read this and had lots of ideas in my head but having a good historical recollection (also in my head), I find this statement hard to refute.

It is now 2021, and Stephen King's pervasive relevance is the closest I came.

While we are at it, a random thought: we all hate IVR. "Your call is very important to us" is the greatest lie ever told. The rest of my rant is at citadel.smashbot.com

Funny thing, I have the notion that Stephen King is not good despite the fact
read a thing of his. I have watched some films based on his
material that hinted the books were not worth the time, though.

I was concerned with films and TV shows in my comment, though. Some early TV shows with Boris Karloff where freaking scary, and the scare scenes were nothing but a combination of good actors, cool illumination tricks, a plot that hinted at an uncertain outcome, and something unexpected happening (but not a jump scare, mind you!)

I think the most scary scene I ever watched was from some TV show in the 50s whose name I don't remember. It featured a hero lost in a sewer system, following a map under the light of a candle. At some poitn he took a turn, and the camera was positioned so at the moment the hero left the scene, you could see a vampire behind him. The vampire looked at the camera, waved his cloak and merged witht he shadows.

The scene had nothing special but it could still make you wet your pants.
