I love how hospital forms still have "Religion" in it like it's supposed to mean anything. If I put in "Satanist", what are you gonna do? Not give me a check-up? Spray holy water all over my body while I sizzle my way back to hell as if my temperature isn't hot enough? It's as if that's gonna kill me. I've been looking forward to that my whole life, boi. It's the same for government forms. What are you gonna do? Not allow me to pay my taxes? Sweet deal.
I'm just glad it's on a piece of paper, not some required online shit form that wouldn't let me proceed. Then again, it has "Sex" on it which I would love to answer with "too hot for you right now" or "born with an enlarged urethra and spiritual penises". I'm just glad there's no debate here on that one, just put F or M and get the fuck out of the receptionist's face.
Just kidding, I know sex actually means something. Like if you're a woman on your period, they can diagnose you with hysteria or witchcraft and you get a complimentary clit stimulation to chase that flu away.
No, really, I mean it.
F for Futanari
M for Meningitis
No, seriously. It's just the religion thing that's weird. I just shut the fuck up and put "Catholic" on that shit. It makes me wonder what they do with that information in online forms though. I think I remember a few online forms that require that information, some with dropdowns. Do you get routed to a different service with varying discounts and services?11
!rant, but not sure if it's a question either.
I've kind of run into a wall when it comes to programming lately. I'm following this course on Udemy for Python, but the next section (that I need to do to be able to continue) uses (outdated) bokeh stuff, and I don't know enough to be able to figure out how to get the same output without much hair-tearing and frustration.
To clarify, the videos uses bokeh.charts, but then there's a note added that says to use bkcharts, which is still outdated, so it doesn't help at all. I did contact the course tutor about it, and he is aware of it but he's got a lot of stuff going on, so I don't know when he'll have time to fix it. In the meantime, I'm stuck and severely lacking in the intellectual stimulation that is programming. :(
I -have- been trying to work on independent projects, but my problem is mostly that I just don't seem to be a frontend kinda guy, so I end up with only halfway-finished stuff. Does any poor soul here have advice on where to look, or (less likely) even have time to explain some stuff?2
I'm so close to having my entire face excavated and just becoming a living skull on a walking meat sack. Friday night is over and I couldn't even play a video game so I lie here like a sore dick from fucking, too sensitive for stimulation and too flaccid to work. At this point, I might as well sniff some muriatic acid to declog this raw meat I call a nose.
Listing my skills:
I have published react-native apps.
I can build an extensive backend/API thing with node.JS/a good framework.(worked on something for my countries national football league during an internship as main/only dev)
I have some experience with c# but havent used it since school.
I have no issue getting into new frameworks/languages, as long as its not PHP.
I have experience working in software teams.
I have experience running my own company(Online store selling airsoft supplies - i quit).
Im working towards getting familiar with Tensorflow 2.0.
I have a Cambridge English assessment certificate at grade C2.
I am currently working(for 0 pay for 50% of the shares) on developing a social media app that uses location tracking on a 20-200 meter scale.
I have ADHD and have been spoken on/warned due to its effects( i.e. forgetting to report progress, getting distracted, needing stimulation so i browse youtube(even have it playing in the bottom corner sometimes), poor communication.
Am i worth anything at all as a developer... im getting pretty depressed due to not having an income at this point... and I dont think anyone will hire me4
Anybody tried Yerba Maté? How does the stimulation compare to coffee? I need caffeine without coffee. I also heard about pills.6
Have any devs done bar work before..?
I've always enjoyed doing things outside of work, and I work 3-4 days a week in my main job to create time for this. It's great for my mental health, and means I can optimise the main job for pay/good benefits and fulfil my "other needs" (stimulation/challenge/enjoyment) in other places.
The main things for me are dev contracting on the side or acting/singing, to a lesser extent travel, a bit of activism and law study. Just because 🤷♂️
Especially re: my last rant with *that* email from HR on Friday, I'm tempted to be a bit more strict about only doing three days and picking up something else.
Although I know the pay is awful, I really want to try bar work on the side just to do something different.
Has anyone else done bar work before?9
