It's actually the cover of a BigBang song


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2ips2mM7Zqw

Which they made changes to in the lyrics and rap, notably the rapper wrote her own part. A powermove on several levels since DC's tiny ass label is in the middle of a lawsuit against BigBang's hugeass label because of principle and they're probably gonna get destroyed by the bigger label's army of lawyers, yet they not only absolutely conquer one of BB's greatest hits but also change the sexist original lyrics.

My favorite Japanese restaurant just brought back ramen bowls after like 3-4 years of having them taken off the menu. I ate two full ones.

the reason I’m telling you this is so that I could tell you that I briefly debated ordering a third by saying “I want to order another one, dattebayo!” Just to see if the guy got it

Really fucking big.

traditionally it’s an effort to eat one, but I came in after exercising.

also, it occurs to me my previous post could use a bit more explanation. I was not talked to an old Japanese sushi chef or anything, I was actually talking to a supremely white dudebro who talks in a distinctly northern twang.

however it’s been my experience that bartenders and bouncers are often huge internet nerds so I figured he had a decent shot at making the reference.

Tales from the unit:

One of the unit screamers put in a request for some belongings of hers. Specifically, she wanted the contents of her third purse.

Specifically, she wanted her placenta out of it for reasons she did not care to share.

she was quite frustrated to learn she had not in fact, brought any purses with her and again requested she be provided with her placenta

As someone currently on the other end of a therapeutic relationship, I would be devastated to learn that my mental health professional was sharing my experiences, quirks, and declarations as “crazy antics” on the internet.

I do not think those that you work with are less deserving of dignity than I simply because they are less functionally capable in polite society.

Tobias
November 10th, 2018, 06:17 PM
Well I have been on both sides too. And TBH having been on this side, insidering how horrifyingly stressful the job is, let alone the soul crushing empathy fatigue and almost automatic dehumanizing effect, if my therapist told me he engaged in a bit of self care and decompressing by sharing my stories at a bar or whatever, provided he kept my name out of it I wouldn’t mind in the slightest.

It’s a bit in the eye of the beholder, and I’m being entirely honest when I say I don’t mean to offend anyone.

however I’m sharing maybe more then I’m comfortable with, but going to anyway when I say that trying to laugh is my coping skill and this job has at least one point driven me to becoming suicidal. It’s hard. It’s really hard. Trying to find a moment of levity on hard days keeps me going.

want a real tale from the unit?

wasnt that long ago we had one of our PRNs who was just sitting there shaking after another horrifying discharge. She was just looking at me wide eyed saying that she didn’t think that this little girl was really safe seeing as how she was still hallucinating.

i wanted to just take her (the other therapist) and give her a hug but I had to harden myself up and tell her to just get used to that rock hard lump of anxiety in her stomach because we have at least one of those a week, so the sooner she learns to just keep working through the fear the easier it gets

she is still working on that. Hell, I am too, even if I talk big.

The unlimited codes thing was hilarious though. Verg was getting mad because he was trying to do combos and learn the character, while Kenta was just spamming sweeps and easily winning.

but japan arcades have these large boxes so you can’t really see your opponent during the match. As one was starting I tapped verg on the shoulder and swapped him out. I’m not some UC master but I do have the portable version so I knew the basics. I stomped Kenta for a few matches until I heard him go “wait, what the hell...?”

when he craned his his head around to see what was going on I just gave him the biggest open mouthed troll grin I could muster.

it was great. Dunno if I ever told that story.

So I thought, "It's cool, I'll just go the local UPS and get it later. I get a friend to take me there around 6:30 PM, and when I had them scan the note to find out about the packages, they said that the driver wouldn't be back until near 8:00 PM and they close at 8. I wasn't happy and my friend didn't want to drive back there again, so now I have to wait until Monday for the packages to delivered again.

TBF most of the scariest stuff falls into that 72 hour bracket. this actually isnt the first time this kind thing has happened, but it’s one of those “never really gets less scary” kinda deals. I’ll get a round of blood drawn next time I’m off.

most therapist will tell you the same unless they choose to turn the question back on you.

The answer to that question, and similarly with social workers/ social service workers, is often very personal in nature and involves some kind of journey or another towards that particular path.

of course, as with any field you have the people who just decided it was a thing that interested them

but more commonly I find that many of them have some kind of Story about how they got into it

Geez, good luck with the tests, Tobias!

I don't mean to sound insensitive or ignorant, but shouldn't patients who present a risk to others (and maybe also themselves) be restrained in some way?

Tobias
November 17th, 2018, 08:21 PM
Hell no. The absolute best you can do as far as seclusion goes is you can put them in the quiet room for 4 hours. Then you have to take them out and let them attack someone before they can be put back in.

there is always booty juice but the problem with Thorazine is the body builds up a tolerance. Someone who has been in and out of hospitals for twenty years and has a good history of inter muscular medications usually learns to shake it off pretty well

It's important to remember people: just because someone is a danger to themselves and everyone around them, that doesn't give you the right to physically restrain them.

These people are sick and deserve our sympathy and understanding, no matter how many people's eyes they've gouged out.

Tying them up would be wrong.

At what point of restricting danger does there develop a teleological difference between locking them in a building and locking them in a room?

I get that, but... wouldn't that be preferable to letting them potentially maim or even kill themselves?

Technically you can lock them in a room for 4 hours. Then they have to hit someone again to get out back though, as I said

That's also a salient point. We've already decided that we need to restrict the patients in the interest of safety.

The real mistake is a severe underfunding leading to an admit-discharge-admit-discharge-admit model that leaves these people entirely unhelped instead of making progress and getting better before it gets this severe

but sure let’s go the archaic route

shall we also restart electroshock for hysteria, as well?

The problem is that a lot of homeless people, for instance, have mental issues and can't take care of themselves. They need somewhere to be taken care of and treated instead of just letting them out into the streets, and you can't really expect a hospital to do that full time. The system definitely had reformable problems, but it was better than just giving up on it. Instead, most of these people either end up homeless or in prison, which we're paying for anyway and makes it worse.

quick question does this include the esports teams that are all men

- - - Updated - - -



dunno how soon you can get tested for this kind of thing but i hope it's in the near future

None of the bands posted or the e-sports teams I know of had a rule of "dudes only". They simply happened to be composed entirely of dudes (and the reason I didn't mention it is because I really don't want to backslide into "but why are there no women there?" ). And like I said, IDOLS make shittons of money. So make some more idols. Why even bother setting them up as an 'e-sports' team when every time someone's tried to set up an 'all girl' e-sports team they've failed miserably?
Heck, I HOPE that doesn't happen again and they actually manage to make an all-female (or more likely, mixed) e-sports team that can actually compete somewhere, because as already observed there's a dearth of female gamers on the global stage, for the games I follow at least. But this is just another publicity stunt.

I'm sure they never had a sign on the wall saying "NO GRILLS ALOUD" but that's not the point. These things aren't literally spelled out anywhere, they're social and cultural constructions. It's a big part of the same reason why women only represent 5% of Fortune 500 CEOs; I'm pretty sure these companies don't have a hard and fast rule on paper that disallow women from holding top positions. It's never a case of "simply happened to be composed entirely of dudes" when it's that widespread.

If companies want to make an all-female or all-male group of whatever, and there's a niche for it and they put effort into it, no reason to think they're fundamentally doomed to fail. Same with this, just because they're all one (female) gender.

Thats a good question.

its more like “we know why it works and we know that it works pretty well...but we can’t tell if the reason it doesn’t last in some cases is because we don’t fully understand the long term effects...or because it works well enough that the people using it stop taking their meds or doing their follow up protocols and end up losing the benifit”

if if that makes sense?

Not really. The camera feeds are pretty good and there is usually someone watching. But you would be surprised how damn long the thirty odd seconds between someone seeing the altercation and calling the code white can feel when someone is trying to throttle you unconscious
