I have a cold. How it is possible for a human being to eject so much snot? It isn't natural I tell you!

they pass their abuse from ear to ear

"HORRIFIC FOOTAGE shows schoolgirl getting SCALPED by ferris wheel! Click to watch HERE!"

 

Well it's high time to purge clickbaiters with the fire of a thousand suns. It's bad enough that "news" sites are starting to use this bottom feeding tactic but to do it for a story of someone literally getting their head mutilated in an accident? What the FUCK?! How lost do you have to be to think that's a good idea?

 

I refuse to click that link. I refuse to give them the money, traffic, or satisfaction of reading anything their failing brain managed articulate. To who ever wrote that article, I convey this most heartfelt message:

 

Fuck. You.

I still hate our education system, but especially how we treat the mentally disabled. I remember this one presentation that basically summed up how the majority of schools view mentally disabled; "We should treat them like normal human beings because they are." But you know what that's called, my friends? Ignorance!

I'm still scared to go to my Computer Science classes because of the anger issues of the one students there. He almost broke the table today. It's frightening, super fucking awkward, and all because he was getting mad over the work he was given that was obviously not suited to his mental style of handling things. He should be in his own classes, with a special teacher and special work. Not expected to do Grade 12 work. I'm not saying he's stupid, not saying he's dumb. I'm just annoyed that we have to treat him like this, to expect him to work how we do, because it obviously isn't working, and he obviously cannot understand. This is retarded. I hate the education system so much.

I've reached a unanimous and unequivocal decision. Windows 10 is officially the worst update of their OS that Microsoft has ever unleashed onto an innocent unsuspecting public. I'm genuinely convinced at this point that the company has ceased to be a human endeavour and instead become a nebulous wellspring of monstrous spite and cosmic hate.

I've been having problems with my printer in the last few months, I couldn't get my printer settings to recognize my particular model and thus I cannot print word documents, web pages, etc. My sisters much more tech-savvy fiancé recommended that I check Canon's website for any updates that could fix the problem. Turns out that for no obvious reason whatsoever the Pixma iP3600 literally won't work on Windows 10! I suppose I ought to be equally pissed with Canon for not having the foresight to accommodate Microsoft's arbitrary weirdness, but really at this point I don't think anyone in possession of a human brain can collaborate, predict or even fathom Microsoft's eldritch mindset anymore. Canon's website simply and ambiguously states "this issue is being investigated and we hope to have these drivers available soon".

I guess for now my OTHERWISE PERFECTLY FUNCTIONAL PRINTER will just have to sit on my desk taking up space, and I have the outré alien horror our simple hominid brains perceive as Windows 10 to thank for it!

 

I'm half tempted to go around Bill Gates house and fight him in his giant Tron house.

I know you've brought this up before, and I leaned more on the side of permitting all forms of disability equal opportunity in education, but I might of changed my mind ever so slightly on the matter. This guy sounds like he has severe behavioural problems and should probably be given an alternative outlet for schooling. Not just because he is going to be an obvious disruptive element for you and other students in a way that a simple learning/physical disability wouldn't be, but surely for his own benefit too. It seems evident from what you've said that he would find a mainstream classroom setup difficult to contend with, through no fault of his own, and might thrive under specialist supervision.

Trump supporters... *shivers* I'm watching the news and I want to gouge my eyes out.

"What do you think of the American gun laws?"

"I think they're pretty good!"

"What about Australia's gun laws?"

"I think you're all a bunch of idiots!"

Oh yes... cause our desire to want safety and peace is idiotic. Oh yes. Mhm.

I honestly don't care what goes on in the US. You can have your; 'Gun rights'. Whatever. But NOBODY messes with Australia. >:I

A VERY relevant vent of my own: I'm sick of the stigma associated with supporting Trump and feeling alienated for being a Trump supporter. I'm friends with an actual SJW because even though our political views are dramatically different, she'll actively look past them because all they bring out otherwise is hostility and hatred

I just want these next 4 years to be over with. I hold no love for either candidate and feeling forced to vote for the one I hate less isn't much helping my long dormant depression stay dormant.

I'd rather flip off both parties and piss on them than voting for the "lesser evil". Neither of them represent me so as far as I'm concerned both of them can go to hell.

I'm not saying I started the fire. But I most certain poured gasoline on it.

Well 1 of the 2 is just about everything I stand against as a person so I'll take voting for the lesser evil.

Fair enough, IMO Both parties are equally evil so a lesser evil doesn't exist for me and I will not compromise my principles under any circumstances.

Trump seems like a guy who genuinely has the country's best interests at heart, but doesn't quite have the political experience to run a country.

I disagree with Hillary's platform and don't trust her in the slightest

Even if Trump is a sleazy moron I at least trust him to hold the office until some better candidates come in

I'd rather not debate politics right now, especially in the vent thread of all places. Not a good subject to start my day on right before class.

 

Instead I'll part with a vent that bothers me this instance involving Windows 10: Active Hours

 

More specifically the idea of not restarting your computer automatically during a range of hours. Good idea, right? except for maybe...

 

  1. They removed the feature to turn off automatic updates
  2. The max range is 12 hours, and you're straight up forbidden from making the range higher. Because, you know, NOBODY has a varied work schedule or anything. Preposterous! I mean just take me! Not like I have to use the computer starting at 7 am on 2 days of the week and ending at 11pm 2 other days of the week!

 

How isolated IS Microsoft anyways?

 

Addendum: To the immediate left of me is a guy who decided to sneak a number of crinkly plastic bag of chips into the library and to my right is someone watching comedy videos on their phone. Granted they're using headphones but their laugh is anything but quiet.

It's why I still run Windows 7. But as soon as React OS becomes a viable alternative I'll switch.

 

It's funny how Microsoft completely ditched everything their OS had been known for up until Windows 10.

 


  • User Friendliness? gone.
    Stability? gone.
    Compatibility with older games? gone.

 

If you have a copy of Windows 7 you might be able to wipe Windows 10 and replace it with Windows 7. But I've also heard Windows 10 is particularly hard to remove so I'm not sure what kind of options you have other than putting up with Windows 10.

Well it's on my school laptop. My home computer still has 7. Naturally this means these updates strike at the worst time imaginable, like last time, where it shut itself down in the middle of midterms. I was only saved because the test has autosaves and will let you back in until you hit submit.

Sorry let me rephrase...

Trump Supporters

*Red-neck ignorant oblivious know-it-all Americans. XD There we go. Didn't mean to offend you.

 

EDIT: Wait, don't take offense to that. I wasn't calling you that. Just... XD Fuck it. Forget I said anything. I'm out.

I really don't envy the choice Americans are having to make in this election. It strikes me as stark decision between someone who will actively abuse office to avoid accountability, and someone who is sincerely and deliberately whipping up hate and stupidity.

 

There tends to be a lot of coverage of the presidential process in the British news which inevitably leads to a lot of complaints from my fellow country kin that we pay too much attention to US politics and that "it isn't relevant" to British interests. There has been NONE of that during this election! You might be familiar with the concept of the USA and the UK having a oft-cited special relationship, I think it was originally a term originating from the two nations close collaboration during the second world war, and has ever since taken numerous other facets of meaning. I personally haven't heard any of the aforementioned knee-jerk national whinging that usually accompanies US election coverage. We seem to care much more this time around. Maybe it's an uneasy side effect of Brexit but my fellow English men and women suddenly seem far less indifferent to the state of our cultural ties to America, we want to know what kind of administration we'll be associating with.

 

The prospect of being in a "special relationship" with Donald Trump... It would have to be special, wouldn't it... icon_eek.gif

So about a month ago, a guy came in, with two fancy leather jackets to get cleaned ($50 each). Like really high quality leather jackets. As expected, he wanted top notch "if it ain't perfect it's shit" work done. We sent them off sight to, what I've been told, the best of the best leather cleaner's place. I've been told they're real miracle workers. If they can't get the job done, no one else can. They worked on them for three weeks (usually they work on leather for two weeks). The guy came in today/night, and wasn't happy with the job done. Saying things like "this is complete horseshit". I even told him the company did all they, all that anyone could do.

 

He was comparing the job to his body works job, where if a customer expected a paint job, and he did nothing, he wouldn't have had the customer pay so much money. He was also saying things like "I don't care if you work your ass off, you can't get the job done, don't give it back to the customer". I mean, the way I see it, if the best of the best can't do it, who can? (Which of course he responded with "no one's the best, there's always someone better").

 

I mean, no one's leaving here happy. It really sucks that basically no one could live up to his expectations, but at the same time, if you're told nothing else can be done, you should at least except your losses and move on.
