Oh and this goes back to Ivys post. Whenever I see the I always- or even better- 'I DONT always'- I always (heh) think of...

I understand people who are into the emotional state of a piece of visual fiction.
I understand there are people who get a thrill out of being scared by horror or jump scares and make noises.
I cannot understand the noises some people make when watching television, even the adverts:

I suppose unless we hear those noises, we don't know what is important or what emotional state something is trying to elicit.'Consciousness is not simply a sensory-perceptual affair, a matter of mental imagery, as the contents of our mind would have us believe. It is deeply enmeshed with the brain mechanisms that automatically promote action readiness' - Jaak Panksepp

Someone I know IRL who is highly intelligent and has mastered what they do at a level few others are capable at all, yet appears to experience no gratification at all in what their knowledge can do for others, have no motivation to share their findings unless absolutely necessary or to see where those who don't understand are coming from. They're not obligated to be otherwise. I just don't want to interact with them, which I feel sad saying about someone who has something so valuable.

I didn't get into full on rant mode at work today, as what I'm going to mention just comes with the territory and you have to roll with it...
But today while making drinks at sbux, I was becoming comically amused/annoyed (the annoyance must be kept in check!/see above) at the water-orderers. I was starting to come up with a jingle/greeting in my head, 'Come one, come all, everyone come into starbucks, get your waters now! Come on everyone!! Please, I want to hand out waters to you all day long!!! I am the Water Giver!') It's especially wonderful when 1/4 of the people don't order them at all, they just lean over the end of the bar and ask for a water also. (Oh sure, I'm not busy at all, let me just get that for you right this second..... sigh...at least most of them understand it may take a second...)"...On and on and on and on he strode, far out over the sands, singing wildly to the sea, crying to greet the advent of the life that had cried to him." - James Joyce

fuking tradition and stupid annual parties with license for loud music until 2h30 in the fucking night!To avoid criticism, do nothing, say nothing, be nothing.
~ Elbert Hubbard
Music provides one of the clearest examples of a much deeper relation between mathematics and human experience.

How interesting that ever since I came out to my dad about a month ago, he immediately starting calling me by my correct name without me ever once having to remind or correct him, and yet my sister, who I told two years ago, claims that it's "too hard" to remember and doesn't even make any inkling of an attempt.

This is going to upset people, but I don't care. It needs to be said because I'll snap at someone if I don't let it out.
The second the Orlando thing happened, I proceeded to hide every single post about on facebook and reddit, and I'd do it here if I could. I continue to do this, AND IT WONT STOP. WE GET IT PEOPLE DIED NOW STFU AND STOP POSTING "OMG LOOK AT THE PEOPLE WHO DIED THAT IS SO SAD" POSTS. Woop de freaking do, what is that going to acheive? I'll tell you what it will: making people sad, emotional, and leading to pointlessly fighting with others. You can't do anything about it, they're dead, it was a terrible thing, they aren't coming back.
I don't want to see it, I don't want to read about it, hear about it, or anything. It's a sad thing that happened, but it's going to do ZERO benefit to me or anyone to hear the details, and all the "oh this is so sad" BS that is being thrown around. It's like a contest of who can make everyone feel the worst about it. I'm sorry, but I just don't care. People die all the time, this is no different to me than murders, accidents, disease, etc to me and my reaction to them is almost always universally "that is bad and sad, but wallowing over death is pointless. NEXT". Why am I going to waste my time worrying or thinking about something that doesn't effect me, nor can I do anything about.
This whole situation is making people act like crazy emotional idiots, again, like all of this stuff, on both sides of the aisles and I am just tired of it. I can't do anything about it, but its all anyone around me wants to talk about, post about, and ask "how do you feel about this?" Why can't I just reply "I don't fucking care, now shut your mouth and don't talk to me about it again". I would really like a mute button for all of this so I can move on with my life, thanks.
I don't process death, and I just ignore it. Sue me.
