Well, I drew a nice bird in there but there was really no one to discuss the climate in which the programs were built and maintained :/

Ah well, I tried.

P.s.

And getting extremely assertive in those situations is great with the ladies! The guys on the other hand tend to have a panic attack and go into flight or fight mode. Getting sad and distraught only makes you some victim. That is terrible advice.
 Quoting: 300 30030895


Hey, I'm just telling you what worked for me. Then again, I didn't have a chip on my shoulder and displaying one's distress and frustration isn't being a victim. It's being human. Then again, I was the one that got them to do what I needed and my uni was satisfied so what I did worked for me.

And no, medical files don't disappear due to procrastination. Legally, one's medical record is intended to be a permanent record and has very strict rules of record keeping and privacy.

Also, I don't procrastinate. I get things done. Procrastination just leads to stress. Period.

Why in the world did your uni want your medical records in the first place? That doesn't strike me as standard. The most any of them have requested from me was a current physical and proof of vaccination/immunity.
 Quoting: AlkaliDesert



I had been a double major previously and had to withdraw from school due to medical reasons as a senior years ago. I also had to switch my major completely, also due to medical reasons. Since I had essentially enough credits for nearly three degrees and no degree, my university freaked and forced me to petition to maintain my loan. Apparently, telling them that you got really very sick wasn't good enough. They wanted medical proof. Nuff said? lol

You're absolutely right; it's not standard. My university gave me hell every term that I was there from petitioning to registering for classes. My GPA was at honors or better, too. Go figure. Trial by fire.

P.S. Sorry for missing today's brainstorm. Had a delay here that ransacked the rest of my schedule for the day. Try again?

The freakiest thing just happened, I had a dream about the guacamole flavored Doritos 99 cent bag being sold for $19.99. I was super confused at the dream, because he price on the bag said 99 cents, and the price printed on the bag said 9.99, then had an update to 19.99. It was like me in the future was in a store, looking at the bags and trying to send a message back in time. At first I didn't get it, but I think it was about inflation.

Anyone else have dreams about inflation recently?

P.S. I don't eat Doritos, and I've never had/seen Guacamole Doritos, but I googled them afterwards and the bags were 100% similar.

... Or, I'm craving Doritos, but I never eat them cuz' the cost too much.

There seems to be a hole in our shared unconsious mind. It isn't a product of MK Ultra or other deliberate messing up with our brain by some outside force. This comes from right-brainish sea of awareness or so called Dirac Sea. If you fall into "the sink" inside this "astral basin", your unconsious mind will collapse and subsequently will have to recreate itself from scratch. I think that on the physical level we just jumped to hyperspace and these quantum effects, the "high strangeness" of experience visible for example as the emerging ability to control computer with our focused attention is a byproduct of occuring collision of 7 timelines spawned from our previous 3,5D (3D space + time).

It was probably from picking our noses too much.

When I was in the gifted and talented classes, I picked my nose so much, my brain came out.

If GATE students were so special, how-come we still ate our own boogers?

Well, maybe... but unlike the norms who ate their own boogers, I at least had the sense to season mine. Granted, it took me awhile to figure out to season it after it was on my finger. Mmmm Tabasco sauce and boogers.

Were you ever removed, many times, from your regular class for "testing"?

Were you shown a series of high speed images on a television, not once, but many times?

Was the school psychologist selectively interested in you?
 Quoting: Jane Grey 862970


Sure was.

I went through a whole battery of tests, over a period of three years. Met regularly with the guidance councilors. The whole shebang.

Then, in the military, I also went through some additional testing in boot camp because of my AFEES test scores. It was suggested that I change my MOS because of a "keen eye and a very unique ability to recognize and read patterns..."

Then, a few weeks later, on BIVOUAC, I was called into the CO's tent and told I qualified for West Point, again because of my test scores.

Silly me. I stayed infantry.

Or you could look at it this way. If you had gone that route, then your family would've been most likely mystified about your military career and what you actually did even long after your death. You could've spent your life under sworn secrecy without being ever able to vent to your significant other or loved ones.

In other words, infantry meant that you chose to be bullet fodder in a way; however, at least you got to talk about it. Silver lining maybe?

There were things that my grandfather definitely took to his grave. We mistook that as habit, too, but trying to get his full service record proved that theory wrong. Some things are secret for much longer than just 25 years. Sensitive compartmentalized information is secret for 75 years if I recall correctly.
