    yay! I can now schedule my oil change over the internet without having to call ahead and talk to an actual human being on the phone and feel super awkward... however, they'll still scold me for forgetting all about oil changes for way too long

    That sounds like a great idea for a thread. It's exactly the kind of knowledge a lot of people need but don't get. Especially with all the just-out-of-college and almost-out-of-college members we have on here.
    I'll start one tonight. Gotta go grab some lunch and see deadpool in theaters. I've got a long day of celebrating ahead of me.

    I'm really digging this Epictetus guy, I think he knew what he was talking about.

    Getting shit done today, although it still seems like so little to actually have done. I live to such an incredible set of personal expectations and there's schedules upon bloudy schedules.

    No, Epictetus was considered to be an arch conservative, stoicism altogether could be considered to be given that its closely associated with quetism, passive behaviour and has its own naturalistic philosophy which would consider things like homosexuality abhorrent or decadent or degenerate.

    Well, I never expect anybody is 100% in the right, I'm not a big fan of rigid ideology because the needs of life don't conform to those sorts of structures. And when I'm mining gems of thought from a 2000 year old philosopher, things like the current times and what we've learned since ancient times are very much worth taking into account.
