My sister bought her first house, having chosen it basically because "God told her that it was the right one." Parents didn't bat an eye.
I'm buying my second, and they're giving me the second degree and asking me all sorts of questions. Floodplain this, construction that, 1% increase in such-and-such payment, so on and so forth; mostly stuff that I have already figured out.
I mean, I'm not listening to them, but still.

When they make me work at work, I don't feel like doing stuff at home except for messing around.▵

I might be over-empathising with the storm.

you get the horns...Your representative owes you, not his industry only, but his judgment; and he betrays, instead of serving you, if he sacrifices it to your opinion.

Those threads originated from derails have pretty damn cool names.
Good job, mods.-----------------
A man builds. A parasite asks 'Where is my share?'
A man creates. A parasite says, 'What will the neighbors think?'
A man invents. A parasite says, 'Watch out, or you might tread on the toes of God... '

When I have children, I'll teach them early on on how to use computers. That way, I don't have to be woken up in the middle of the night to hear them yelling, "Mooooom, the computer won't staaaaart! Someone told me deleting System 32 would make the computer fasteeeeer! We need to call the cyber poliiiice!"

who can't throw away their humanity
who stay idle in growth
who won't dirty their hands
those are the most terrifying of monsters
