Yeah well, women have a higher pain tolerance. Plus yall are generally much more mentally stronger than men. I think its because women just exist at a baseline 4 crazy. So quitting smoking put you up to about a 6. I went from a 1 to a 6 ... see the swing is just way more extreme for men. That's why we cant handle the mental stress as well as women. You are probably like "meh, this isn't much different than my normal crazy"

Yes, that's a big part of what men love about women. Its pretty sexy tbh. Just a little bit crazy. Drives us crazy for you haha.

Re: What's on your mind - Part 2

These little shrimp... and these tiny little fish...

I'm looking at a 150 gallon fish tank that is mostly algae, tiny decorative shrimp, and tiny fish, celestial pearl danios.

I get overwhelmed from time to time. I have lost 60 friends since I joined the army. The last one was due to suicide. He was the 60th.


I can't even ****ing remember all their names anymore!

I thank God for these little fish and these little shrimp...

Have you ever cried and laughed hysterically at the same time? Have you ever just decided to throw sanity to the wind?

That's a lot of tea. That's probably a lot of pee, too.

Wasn't your last ban voluntary?
Yes voluntary. You can always bet if Sophie comes earlier or not. Missed a few of you.

Bear with me I'm day 2 not smoking so fucckkkkkkk I'm kinda wild right now. Further I'm not drinking either double fucucuucuckckckckckkc you know? And its Thanksgiving and I got company so CAPITAL FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUCKCKCCKCKCKCKCKCKC!!!! !!!!!!!

My apologies to anyone in advance. AA meeting today was nice. I'm now addicted to tea ... I drink like 12 cups per day. Herbal, black tea, doesn't matter. Just sucking down hot tea all day. I like to go outside and just sit with my coffee in the morning where I would normally have a cigarette and just sit there and drink my damn coffee and feel what it's like to just sit in your craving. Instead of taking my mind off it doing something, I just sit there and feeeeeeeeeeel it you know? Reminds me why I'm doing this.

Again. Sorry in advance to anyone when I snap and go ape **** on you for seemingly no reason.

Ahhgghghhhhdggfhghghhhhh!!!!!!!

Re: What's on your mind - Part 2

Doing some thinking about polyamory...

I love people for different reasons. There is a guy I work with that I absolutely love... I chat with him nearly every day. We text a lot about work related issues. He is the kind of guy that I could go on a bender with, or go camping with in some secluded corner of wilderness. And in either situation, we would absolutely enjoy our time together.

There has never been a romantic interest between us though. It's more... close brotherhood. I feel closer to him than I do my own biological brothers that I grew up with.

We have been through some nasty stuff together. Since I have known him, we have both lost the same friends, for the most part.

I know I can live without him. But I prefer life with him in it. I love him like a brother, I think. I say "think" because my biological brothers showed far less loyalty. There should be no reason for anyone to have an issue with our relationship, right? I mean, I see him as a best friend that I would die for, and I know he would do the same for me. We have both put our lives on the line for each other. The problem, in my case, is that he is a junior enlisted soldier. And I am not. I am one of the most senior enlisted non-commissioned officers in my unit.

Only in special forces can a senior noncom be "in the foxhole" with a ****ing private. I have never been in the same place as him outside of what work requires. I would LOVE to go play pool with him, hang out, etc.

We don't hang out because it is not allowed. At least, it's not allowed until he becomes a non-commissioned officer.

At that point, no restrictions apply.





If he was a she, would it be different?

What do y'all think?

Ya know? But I dont know nuffin 'bout no rules. Rules are for squares. I'd say you learn as much about yourself and a fellow you're traveling with on a nice 60 mile 15k ft+/- 4 day 3 night trek in some backwoods godforsaken busted ass bush whack trail, as you would any other place. What's stopping you? You ever kept a secret?

I personally see no difference having close friends either male or female. I understand that's against TAM rules but, like I said, I dont know nuffin 'bout no rules. Ymmv

Probably if he was a she there would be sexual tension present.

Re: What's on your mind - Part 2

You know that moment when you are just... very tired?

I still have 8 years to go... how can I be this tired at 12?

Re: What's on your mind - Part 2

Y'all ever do this one where you put in some headphones when you go to the store except you aren't listening to anything. That way you can eavesdrop. Or when someone says hello you can ignore them without hurting their feelings. That last one feels good. Just walk right past them and they figure "oh, they didnt hear me because of the headphones" but secretly you did hear them and just wanted to purposefully ignore someone without hurting their feelings. That's a good one. Its sorta therapeutic isn't it?

When you said thereís never been a romantic interest there I assumed since you specifically said there isnít, that there also must not be sexual tension either or you would specifically say there was.

Fair enough. I imagine sexual tension and romantic feelings typically go hand for most people. They don't for me.

Ten points to anyone who can figure out where my new signature comes from.
