Break Postponed

If you click here, you'll see I'm still threatened to the grave.

And at this point? I don't need this shit. But, I can't just leave without this issue resolved.

Once and for all, I am not obligated to hand out my personal information to Sye for he can come after me.

Oh well. Thank you all for the comments... but, I may stay just yet...

EDIT* I feel kind of like PZ Myers. :)


  1. RS,

    Sye is nothing more than a goddamned ass sore idiot trying to get a reaction out of you. Anyone who would resort to challenging someone to a physical confrontation because their arguments are so Christ-sucking stupid is not worth your time. I know you already know this, I just needed to get that out of my system. Don't let that sack of fuck get you down.

    And I do realize I'm breaking the 'don't be abusive rule' but for this one I'm not sorry.

  3. RS,
    Perhaps you could let out the source of your depression.

    I have those sources that I deal with too.

    If you care to share, I arm here.

  4. RS,
    Do you yet long for certain religious belifs? Are you conflicted about this?

    Are you on the fence on this issue?
    let me know. /d

  5. Thank you Dale.
    I'll fill in more over time.

    But, don't worry, I'll always be a heathen. :)

  6. If you ever need to talk, I assume you can look up my email address, or you can go to the site my name links to, register there and pm me.

    They're a bunch of good guys so they'll leave you alone if you ask. Emailing would probably work better.

  7. Hey, if you do decide to stick around, don't let it be because of Sye - that's giving him too much power. We'll take care of him; don't worry.

  8. RS,

    You have alot of friends here, and if you decide to stay, I hope its to hang with us rather than argue with Sye. He's probably pissed about having 1 ball or something. Probably shakes his head "no" when someone says, "that takes alot of balls to enter the lion's den". Nope, just 1.

    You need to talk, my email is clostridiophile@gmail.com

  9. I'm here if you ever want to talk, as well. If you want my e-mail or AIM feel free to let me know. Either way, I hope you stick around.

  10. Hey Student--

    Ya want maybe we should flush that turd?

    How 'bout it, guys? I say messing with Student's head is grounds enough to ban the hell out of Sye.

    I sez Aye!! He walks the plank!! What say ye?

    Come on--What's In Yer Wallet?

  11. I don't care either way. I have learned to ignore the idiot. How many times do you have to demonstrate an argument is stupid before the idiot stops using it...oh yeah, he's an idiot! I'm pretty indifferent, I think if you simply ignore him from now on...act as if he didn't post, he would just leave.

  12. When he comes around, just ask, "Damn, does anyone smell a fart?"

  13. RS,

    I know I'm a relative newcomer here, so I hope I'm not speaking out of turn.

    Speaking for myself, I really hope you reconsider your recent decision to take a break. You have a lot of friends here who obviously care a great deal about you, and if you're going through some difficulties, it's always better with friends.

    As for Sye ShitStain, I would strongly urge you to not allow him to be a factor in your decision, either way. Allowing him to influence your decisions grants him a power he doesn't deserve.

    Whatever your decision is, I sincerely wish you the best.

  14. Oh, you guys are the best.
    I mean that.

  15. Ps. It's a factor of many things.
    One feeling is, hopelessness in myself and life. Added up by multiple factors. And, if you've ever gotten that feeling of emptiness. Not suicidal, or really sad...just empty?

    Part of my story involves twins and a brunette. so, it's strange from the beginning. Others result in my past life experiences coming to bite me. And the rest is made of tiny little other factors I don't think I could share.

  16. Oh...and I've begun to lose interests in things I used to like. Blogging, being one of them.

    I thought taking a break might be good.
    Kind of like taking a nap in the afternoon. in a sense.

  17. If you ever need someone to talk to, please don't hesitate to email me.

  18. Right. You guys are the best support group.
    FUCK AA.

  19. @clos--

    I don't care either way. I have learned to ignore the idiot.


    He doesn't bother me much either, other than to be a minor nuisance, like a tick or something. Not evil or anything, more a waste of electrons than anything else. I don't give him the time of day.

    But you have to remember, Clos--it's not OUR head Sye is fucking with.

    Look at all the commotion that fool has caused. All this time could have been spent discussing something more important than that jagoff, that's fer shure. Sye's a turd. Flush him and be done with it. Maybe he'll wash back up on the shoreline of Ray's blog.

  20. RS,

    Likewise from me, brother. email me at otherwise.blueplanet@gmail.com and I'll pass on my real email address. I've done dealt with clinical depression for decades, so I'm familiar with what a bad time the low points are.

    Virtual community. Kinda like virtual sex except you don't have to wipe off the keyboard afterwards.

  21. RS sez:

    And, if you've ever gotten that feeling of emptiness. Not suicidal, or really sad...just empty?

    Sounds like mild depression...the kind that can get substantially less mild fairly quickly.

    Whatever you do, don't try to deny what you're feeling (or not feeling, as the case may be). Depression is a real, medical condition. As someone who has experienced it quite intensely, as well as someone who is married to someone currently afflicted, I can say that with certainty.

    Earlier, you spoke of posting out of sheer anger. This is a textbook symptom of depression in men. Now, I'm no doctor, and please don't think I'm trying to diagnose you over teh Intarweb, but the symptoms you're describing are eerily familiar.

    There's four things I've found that are effective in combating depression:

    1) Don't dwell on it. Depressive thoughts are self-sustaining and self-reinforcing. Do something that challenges your brain...chess, sudoku, crosswords, whatever it takes.

    2) Exercise is a powerful aid against depression. Just a few minutes of elevated heart rate a day can do wonders.

    3) Sunlight is very important to keep your brain chemistry normalized. Try to get at least an hour of sunlight a day.

    4) Keep in contact with your friends. They can help you keep you on the right track.

    Again, I hope I'm not speaking out of turn, but I'm genuinely concerned, and I want to help in any way I can.

  22. "Oh...and I've begun to lose interests in things I used to like. Blogging, being one of them.

    I thought taking a break might be good.
    Kind of like taking a nap in the afternoon. in a sense."


    I felt like this a few months ago when I was finishing my grad work. Nothing was fun, the future seemed bleak, I was stressed and unhappy. I still feel this way a few times a week. I either drink or work out to change my mood...i recommend the latter. Good to hear that you aren't having any dangerous thoughts or anything; i was concerned about this. If this persists, there is no reason not to seek some help, why spend life this way? In the end, you have to do what's best for yourself...we'll understand if you want to step back for a bit. I think I can speak for everyone when I say that you are most welcome here anytime!

  23. RS,

    Please shoot me a quick email when you get the chance. I need to say something in private.

    Thank you !

  24. Wow.
    You guys are my treatment. I GREATLY APPRECIATE THIS. all of you, and the other raytractors.

  25. The Ranting Student said: "But, don't worry, I'll always be a heathen. :)"

    You'd think that evidence to the contrary would sway someone who posits what you believe, but oh no, he'll remain a heathen no matter what. And you folks deny that yours is a religion :-D
