Hi John,

Thank you for the prompt response.

I'm glad to hear that you're doing well.

Let me tell you that reading the events of your day gave me great joy and it had me very excited.

Your politeness and kindness towards your roommate is truly heart warming. I particularly enjoyed the part where you shared some of your delicious-seeming milkshake with her.

But John, you had me wondering: why does ice cream make you sad?

I am not very fond of ice cream, but I never thought it could trigger such a strong emotion.

Hi john,

I hope I am not replying at too late of a time. I just discovered this site and the messages. I found your story about the milkshake interesting and am too very fond of the kindness you showed. I too am the same with the window situation, I cant leave them open in the summer as it gets far too hot here, but in the autumn and winter I very much enjoy the crisp air.
Tell us why ice cream makes you sad soon please. I am interested. Hopefully I will get to read your replies on a night much like tonight. Autumn air crisp and flowing through the window, candle lit, a very good murakami novel, and a bottle of jameson to warm me.
I look forward to hearing from you again.
Thank you,

John Smith 17/10/23(Mon)04:13 No. 46250


i apologize for my absence, things have been somewhat hectic lately, and my mental state has been rather poor. i will now tell you the tale of why icecream makes me sad, and i also found some things you said very enjoyable and i would like to comment on those things as well. but i will get to that in a moment. i would like to warn you though, i am afraid you will find my story rather unpleasant. i hope that is okay.


>Your politeness and kindness towards your roommate
unfortunately, we do not get along often. i live with my partner and his younger sister, and i find her extremely frustrating and annoying most of the time. however, i know that we are family, even though family is something that is new to me and something that i have great difficulty understanding, due to the situation of my birth and how i was raised. very long story short, i come from a very mentally ill and addiction-prone blood line, and i was adopted as a baby (after staying a few months in a nunnery) because my mother couldn't take care of me and the state pressured her to give me up because of her some incidents that occurred with my older brother (may he rest in peace), and i was adopted. my adoptive parents were wonderful when i was very young, but as i got older they got more.. experimental with handling me, and this in tandem with their frustration and impatience led to some abuse for a few years. family is something that just confuses me, and i always see happy families in the movies and i am always envious of that, but when it actually happens, when i actually have people in my life to consider family, it just.. feels strange and confusing. Anyways, to continue with my story, we do not get along very often, and i find her annoying and frustrating, but lately i have been making an effort to be more kind and understanding and patient, to really try to understand how a family works, and to really let it happen. thus, the offering of the milkshake, the engaging in conversation, and so on.

>why does ice cream make you sad?

i am not sure if "sad" is the precise emotion i feel. it's difficult to describe, and i already have difficulty recognizing different feelings. It just makes me feel sad and guilty and sick and some other feelings because of my parents. it seems like a childhood favorite that would be shared with friends and enjoyed with family, and i did have icecream with my parents occasionally as a rare special treat, but it just seems so foreign for some reason. my childhood seems so... hazy. like if you were too at in a pool of water, the water would be churning, or in a mirror, the mirror would be cracked. something just seems so off about it. but to be more direct, my parents gave me medication because they thought i had AD Message too long.

thanks for the compliment John. This board is quite slow, but there's a nice peacefulness to it. I think that's the point

I think we both arrived here in the same way John, I hope we get to explore this board together and I hope you enjoy it as I have.

I was forced to sit on the other side of the bus today as my usual set was taken. I the same street but through a different window, it felt like taking a new bus down the same road. I don't want this to happen again.

hey John

How goes the employment?


John Smith 17/09/14(Thu)04:28 No. 46202

Good evening John

It is generally pretty good for me. I had one of my best months last month, though unfortunately it was only in gross profit and not in overall units moved. Normally this would be fine but As I am one of the most tenured this has my General manager convinced I'm simply being lazy. I've learned that Ignoring the verbal beatings of a madman makes life a little easier though.

If you've ever wanted an truly unique employment experience you should try Sales, though I suggest having some money already set aside for the hard times.

Good Morning John

I see what you are saying here. I am but a lowly cashier living with his parents, I see many people leave and go. I feel comfortable the way it is now. Thank you anyways.

This might be too interesting, but I love that Burger King's 10 nuggets for 1.49 deal is basically normal price where I live. It makes getting Chicken nuggets easy

John Smith 17/10/19(Thu)01:13 No. 46244

Hi John!
I just had chicken nuggets.
It was great. Very comforting.
I strongly recommend.

John Smith 17/10/19(Thu)02:35 No. 46245

Spicy chicken nuggets are $1.49 now too.

They're really not spicy but at least they have some flavor, unlike the normal kind.

All they need now is szechuan sauce.

I enjoy Squirt. Had no idea it was grapefruit flavored until recently, no caffeine however, which is unfortunate.

I've never had Squirt on its own before, only as a mixer. Is it any good?

i really miss video stores.
we had blockbuster and hollywood video here. but they're gone now.
netflix and putlocker and amazon have more selection and you can get movies right away, but it's not even close to the same experience as driving out to the store and browsing around for a while for something cool or finding something random (or discovering someone already rented the movie you wanted and having to find something new), bringing the tape/dvd back to the car, picking up food and going home to watch the mysterious dvd with no cover and a weird summary. it doesn't sound that great at all typing it out, but it really was a great experience. man, i really miss going to video stores.
when i briefly lived in texas, there was a really great video store in austin that was really big and i think it even had two floors. it was really great.

.... you know what, i'm gunna look online to see if there are any video stores around here. hm... i suppose if i really wanna be old school i could try to find a phone book. but i don't know if we have one around. telephone booths/public phones aren't a thing in illinois anymore so i can't find one outside. hm.
anyways, that's what i'm going to do today.

i was never really into pinball, but my dad was. there's a little diner type place that had (maybe still has? i haven't been there in years) a pinball machine and he would always play while we were waiting for our food.
we used to go there all the time when i was kid.
i miss that. as i got older and he got worse at parenting, we got along less and less and drifted really far apart. after some really bad incidents that i still haven't forgiven him for, we just sort of lost everything we had as father and son.
i haven't seen my dad in a few years now that i think about it.

The laundromat near my place had soul blade in it, good fighter. It was next to a liquor store so people would drink and smoke in the laundromat. Open 24hrs, would go in late sometimes.

hi /eh/,
Last night i was watching some law around the world,and the law of smokes has attracted me to deeply. I find it a little bit incomplete.
All smoke laws speak about sell/buy cigarette for minor, but no one mentions about if an adult give a cigarette to a minor. Is it a crime or not?
Tell me about your country

John Smith 17/09/16(Sat)07:50 No. 46206

If your locality has a law against selling cigarettes to minors, it will normally also be illegal to give one to them. The reason they're not allowed to sell to minors is because they don't want minors to possess the item in question.

That's not to say there isn't going to be some weird backwards jurisdiction in the world where it's illegal to sell to minors but not illegal for minors to possess it, but in most places the laws are fairly logical even if they're sometimes convoluted.

If you are not legally allowed to purchase an item, you aren't typically allowed to possess the item either.

John Smith 17/09/16(Sat)11:04 No. 46207


Ok, but the problem is, if an adult give a cigarette to a minor it's not like buy or sell and if a minor can own a cigarette, who is in trouble? An adult only give a cigarette to a minor, the law only say buy/sell, and a minor smoke the cigarette and he can own it, so he can smokes, but he can't buy. So, who is in real trouble?

John Smith 17/10/09(Mon)00:15 No. 46223

The closest analogy I've seen is liquor laws. There are localities where someone under the arbitrary age (and the international variation in legal drinking ages leads me to believe that every possible number is largely arbitrary) is allowed to drink in the presence of a legal adult who buys a drink for them.

The difference is that right now tobacco is perceived to be far worse than alcohol as far as intoxicants go. It's not unheard of to see a beer commercial and a PSA for a service to quit smoking all in the same commercial break.

Today I drove to the ends of all the roads of Juneau.

There were signs saying it was the end of the road and some hiking trail heads, that is all I did.

John Smith 17/09/15(Fri)08:07 No. 46204

that sounds amazing and interesting
careful now

will you tell us about it?

John Smith 17/09/18(Mon)09:13 No. 46209

it wasn't really that interesting. Its just trees and a dead end sign. Picture a cul-de-sac but with trees rather than houses. One of the ends even had houses at it.

I could see how that sounds interesting if you haven't lived here.

John Smith 17/09/18(Mon)09:22 No. 46210

Anyways, it was about two hours of driving to each spot, a trial head at one, houses at another, and a park at the third, and then more trees at the other. They recently expanded the road too, adding another mile.

I could talk about the view and what not, but that might get too interesting, i don't know. For me, I'm used to it all so its not that exciting.

Dear John,
How do you feel about walks? I personally love them, night or day, especially when the park I walk in is empty.
Regards, John

as it occurs, the best part about walking alone is also being alone, making main street not an option.

If you are really worried John, you should carry a knife. If you don't like that approach, don't carry or wear anything valuable while you walk. I like to leave my phone at home when I walk in the park at night.
