    Condolences to Opeth17.

    I lost my grandmother over 9yrs ago, and it still pains me. I grew up amongst two junkies (mother/uncle) that made her last years total shit with jail time, and constant pestering of funds to get their daily fix. We barely had enough money to eat/keep the lights on as is, but she always made sure I had some sort of meal in me.

    As an aside, my mother when she wasnt in the slammer collected welfare and food stamps. How much of that went into my belly? Not a kernel. Its easy to trade 25 stamps worth of food for 10 bucks of heroin. Tis the junkie way.


    Truly seems like a lifetime ago.

    Sorry to hear that Opeth, sharing memories is important.

    Last year my aunt and I typed and printed a book containing my long-departed grandpa's writings about his youth and the war years. Before she approached me with this I had ZERO idea that my grandad, who died when I was 15, had ever written his memoirs, let alone that he wrote in such a vivid, sometimes tongue-in-cheek style. Apparently this little handbook was a bit of a secret between him and my aunt. Reading and transcribing it was a fantastic experience.

    The book was given to everyone in the family. I thought it was the best Christmas gift ever.

    That's a great story man and a testament to how much he means to you. My grandfather was also my first best friend and he remained one until his passing. I've always gone adventuring with him from catching frogs and bugs as a kid to going to see museums and historical sites together as an adult. That was one thing that distinguished our relationship from others is that he was willing to do things that interested me to spend time together and help grow my sense of wonder and knowledge. A lot that I am is due to him.

    I don't think I'll ever be over it either. That's probably just the way it is when you lose someone close to you. I'm just working to get to a point where when I see pictures or think of something that reminds me of him (which is basically all the time) that I can smile and reflect on it with joy instead of tearing up.

    Sounds like a wonderful person. I was not close with my mother's parents. Her Dad abandoned them and her Mom has lived a strange, dramatic, distant life. My Dad's parents (this was his father) have always been like a part of our immediate family. Growing up in Colorado, far away from our more distant relatives, it was only us. I spent probably as much time at my grandparent's house as I did at home. It feels like what I'd imagine losing a parent is like. I look up to him more than anyone else.

    Thank you sir. I appreciate your thoughtfulness.

    I'm glad you had a grandmother to help you through that. Grandparents are really a life-saver sometimes. Also glad to see you active here regularly. I was hoping to see you around more when I got back on here.

    That truly is an amazing gift. I've been spending my birthday each year with my grandparents and taking little trips to see them as much as possible over the last few years (including every Thanksgiving). Spending time with your elders is so important. My grandfather and I would take little day trips every time I came and the best part was the conversation. I'd been encouraging him for years to write about his memories, but he never did. I finally came up with some questions and started interviewing him and recording the audio of it last year. I got a 20-minute video of him while were on one of those day trips and about 2 hours of audio recordings of him talking about his forebears and his childhood experiences up through high school. I had planned to continue interviewing him about the rest of his life but he passed. I kick myself for not starting sooner. I'm thankful that we have what we have because no one else had done anything like this. I've started working on one with my grandmother now too.

    Desperate bruh, we need new blood. Even sociopaths such as Jimmi have a place at the table.

    Aside from CareCrew who wouldnt come back even if the forum was buried in Snow2Fall's arsehole, who could we possible wrangle?

    No one here has posters such as Tranquillian's physical or email address? Id wager some vucks just think RC is dead and buried, but if they knew otherwise they would pop in.

    Lets snatch these fools back from beyond the grave. I'll snail mail these fucks like Saving Private Ryan if need be.

    Imagine getting a hand written letter in 2021 asking you to come back to the internet forum you haven't thought about for 10 years :tickled:

    Their freedom was taken away as they were taxed
    To be abducted for research
    The experiment will make sure Pelosi will last
    Are there still some alive ones?

    The schools were shut down
    Because Newsom said you need security
    Or were we in jeopardy
    They say the housing market crashed
    But we know it's bullshit
    We have the right to know what really happened
    H.B 1947
    Shipping back pieces to hangar
    To slowly put it together
    To find new taxation policy
    And maybe answer how to grift forever

    Afraid of spreading the liberal disease, chaos and confusion
    The energy and gun control law will be worthless
    But we have the right to know what really happened in
    H.B 1947

    So who has or hasn't gotten the vaccine?

    Has anyone grown an extra limb from the vaccine?

    Whatcha think about about this 'Delta" variant?

    Will there be a new variant every year?

    When will this planet die?

    Why is The Thing still the best horror movie ever?

    Was Childs or Macready a Thing? Or human?

    The eternal question

    Delta is a new talking point to shove this big pharma horse shit down our throats. Mind you this hasnt been FDA approved, and was rushed in by emergency order. I'll eventually take it once it's approved via gun point. Employer is going to mandate the horse shit just like they do with the flu vaccine.

    Im not an anti vax queer, but I am a pro immune system snob. All the vax sucking queefs pray at the altar of big pharma while slurping down ding dongs on the sofa. What's going to provide more protection? A vax or being able to tackle a flight of stairs?

    Biggest uptick in Covid was in Feb of this year. (Hospitalizations were getting up there, despite the State of Calishit making no headways in improving capacity.) My coworker in particular who perished had an underlying condition for sure, always sounded winded from the most minute movements. So if you worry tremendously over this shit, start hiking up some hills and stop waiting for big daddy government to make it all go away.

    I personally think I had it but was largely asymptomatic. Should go get tested for the antibodies tbh.

    ...and before anybody even dares rebuke my comments with "go get vaxxed today."

    My body, my fucking choice.
