The government getting involved with medical the way it is. Trump on a crusade to stop all opiate abuse is being done in such a knee-jerk reaction of a way it is actually harming more than it is intended to help.


Having someone in my family who has to live with constant debilitating pain only to have the doctor tell them they have to come off of it in less than two months is harsh. This is especially true when the doctor is put in such a position that instead of continuing with medicine they are quitting the profession over this. A pain specialist being forced to pull hundreds of patients off their pain meds and try to figure out how best to help them otherwise just because the government tells them to, not because it is a medical decision to for the benefit of the patient.


I just don't get how someone can say they understand chronic pain without a medical degree and that other than a small handful of reasons all opiate medications should be very temporary. I guess he has never had to watch someone suffer with debilitating pain; hear in their voice when they are on the brink of crying due to the amount of pain they are in and exhaustion they feel due to being unable to sleep because of the pain......

I think the only thing that would open his eyes would be to experience everything himself.But as we all know, he's a madman that claims he knows better and has a very healthy dick (with no proof whatsoever). Glad I live in Canada. His stupidity mostly reaches our news only. Maybe you should apply for immigration with your familly?

Trump is, unfortunately, someone who affects the entire world sheerly through the magnitude of his position. Being in another country won't save you from him no matter how good your health care is because we all have to breathe the same air and drink the same water. If his tariffs haven't affected you yet, his environmental policy (or lack thereof) will. Enjoy your polar bears for the remaining 30 years they have to exist.

The issue with him and opioids is that he never had a plan to begin with. His campaign team knew it disproportionately affected people in strategic swing states with a lot of electoral value (much like his coal fetish) so he yammered incessantly about having a plan and they bought it hook, line and sinker. Hillary had a plan for them too and she tried to talk about it but because the media in the U.S. cannot process the words "Hillary Clinton" without associating with the word "emails" her message never got through. So then he convenes a "task force" with much breathless media coverage... and it does jack shit and comes up with nothing.

Now he's delegated the drug policy to his attorney general, walking ghoul Jeff Sessions, one of the original architects of the War on Drugs, and his solution to anything involving drugs is "ban everything, jail everyone. Preferably in prisons run by my donors." There is no room for nuance with these people; they are on a mission to destroy everything. If I was being threatened with imprisonment for trying to do my job the way my patients needed me to, I would probably quit too. Which is actually what they wanted all along; everyone must conform to how they want to you to live, and to hell with the consequences.

Now his plans are hurting the people who trusted him the most--exactly as both she and Bernie and Obama said they would--but, just like the Harley and Carrier and nail factory workers in Wisconsin and Indiana and Missouri who just got laid off by the hundreds because of his trade war, these people still believe he's helping them because they've all got Stockholm Syndrome from 25 years of being brainwashed by Fox News and talk radio, and because he goes to these rallies and blows smoke up their asses for two hours telling them how 'smart' and 'elite' they are for voting for him. And more importantly, they're so spiteful and bitter they don't care if they get screwed over as long as it's not a black guy doing it and "libruls" get "triggered" over it.

[DISENGAGE RANT MODE; BELIEVE ME, I TYPED MORE THAN THAT]

I finally figured out how to get my SNES Classic working with the hacks (long story short, it wasn't the power cord, I was using the wrong version of Hakchi) and now I've got about 70 games on it, although a few have failed to work. (I also wound up buying a second, brand new console while I was searching for a power cord and discovered the Target by my place had them in stock out of nowhere. I'll probably give away the used one as a Christmas present.) I'm playing Super Mario RPG for the first time in like 15 years and I'm trying to get to 30 Super Jumps so I can get the damn Attack Scarf for the second time in my life but:

1. You have to make 30 button presses in a row with time intervals of 40 frames (2/3rds of a second), with the last 15 presses needing to be frame perfect;

2. The SNES Classic has input lag;

3. An HDTV has display lag too;

4. I have chronic muscle weakness in my hands and fingers as well as probably undiagnosed carpal tunnel syndrome, and you have to get that Y button down very quickly to make that 2-frame input window. And then do it over and over again.

5. Oh, and I'm left-handed so I'm pressing the button with my weak hand.

I've been grinding the hell out of it since last night and after well over 300 attempts I've got to 26 jumps but I'm increasingly doubting I'll be able to hit 30. I have no illusions about ever trying for 100 (Super Suit breaks the game anyway). If I was on a regular emulator I could just throw it in slo-mo or frame advance and savestate after every jump, but the SNES Classic's savestate function isn't fast enough for that.

Also I was clipping my toenails tonight and I somehow cut the quick on my right big toe even though it was like 1/16th of an inch from the loose part of the nail. The pain isn't bad but now I have to bandage up my toe so it doesn't bleed on the floor.

I finally broke down and called eBay's customer support and they determined my account had been deleted for inactivity. Apparently they do that automatically if you don't access your account for two years... but it doesn't say that anywhere on the website. So now I have to start all over with my feedback although I was able to buy the things I wanted.

EDIT: I finally got to 30, just barely. I gave up the grinding and went through the raid on Nimbus Land castle, and got a 29-jump performance that caused me to unleash a loud, and lengthy, stream of profanity. After storming the castle I moved on to Barrel Volcano where I started grinding jumps again on a Magmus (since they're immune to jump attacks), and on the first one in the volcano I managed to get to 30 on my second to last attempt before I ran out of FP. Now I got the Attack Scarf and I've cleared Bowser's Keep and beat Culex and am basically ready to go beat the game and never have to worry about trying to do Super Jumps ever again :D

The MMD community's mentality of making life horrible for one another and being insufferably smug.

Especially that one guy on deviantart who always appears in searches for models and even just gamerips and never posts the source. fuck you xxsnowcherryxx

Now there's a name I've heard...... if it makes you feel any better most of that person's gamerip models have serious, serious problems. Picture is case in point.

The Pretty Cure MMD community is pretty much the worst of the worst. There's one truly awesome guy who makes great models and makes them public, and that's ykihp, but his models only go back to HappinessCharge, and all the older series are by modelers who are basically just hoarders like HutariwaP, who lord their models over you posting them on their blogs and don't ever release them even though 2/3rds of their parts come from other people. And when they do make them available they use ridiculously obscure passwords and only leave them up for a day or two. The rest of us are left to try to make do with mangled gamerips and 3DCG conversions that date to 2010 or so.

And then if you do get a model there's usage rule after rule, notice how you've never, ever seen an R-18 MMD Precure video. I get it, the show is for little girls, but so is Cardcaptor Sakura...

I'll do you one better, though. People who post DL links to models and hide it behind an adfly redirect that sets off every antivirus known to man... and they're someone else's models. And then disable comments so people can't point out what a scammer they are. And these group mods so lack the will to self police that they never do anything about it even though this is illegal in the truest sense of the word. Cough, cough, BrightShadowMMD...

I certainly got that impression. In the end you end up downloading whatever set of tools or scripts he used to rip them in the first place and manage to do it without screwing it up. I think it was either him or someone else who was putting together some persona mmd models, they completely wrecked the shapes, but the tool just straight up dumps them in an obj, making it a tedious but pretty easy task to put them back together.

I had a feeling Precure's mmd community was like that. I managed to download one set after considerable tedium then I just shelved the series.

The adfly pages are particularly annoying because by the time you've disabled everything, the computer's got so many bitcoin miners running on it, you might as well have just paid for it.

Don't even get me started on Steve.

Favoritism.


Coddling staff, having sympathy for them, prioritizing their folly over others....call it what you will. It pisses me off.

Wanting to use Facebook for close friends/family, but every time I visit getting a notification for a suggestion... which you apparently can't turn off.


Maybe it's time I migrate to Twitter.

Riding the coattails of this would be Nintendo's online subscription service. Yeah 20 dollars a year isn't that bad but still feels like a slap to the face being told I now have to pay to play Splatoon 2 online when they'll still be using Peer-to-Peer instead of dedicated servers most likely.
