I am thirty in less than three months. Once upon a time, I spent hours on 7chan every night. Now I check it maybe twice a year. I wonder if 7chan will be here in another ten years? I wonder what all my old friends are doing now? I feel like those than also frequented here back then are all in a similar situation to me now. Different lives, obviously, but I doubt they check here much.

Hey John
everywhere I used to frequent back in the day has died off so this is one of the last calm places I can come to visit for a little chat. At the very least I hope it never truly dies

See you next time
John

If I even think it's going to rain that day, I take an umbrella. My hair gets frizzy and weirdly greasy really fast when introduced to water. That's not a good look for anyone.

You'd like it here. It was overcast and rainy for ten days straight this fall; looks like winter's going to be mostly overcast and drizzly.

I really love soda. I can't get enough it.

Do you like soft drinks?

It's like Fresca but with sugar (or at least corn syrup) instead of artificial sweetener.

If you can find somewhere that sells some Jamaican groceries look for a drink called Ting. It's in the same family but has some actual grapefruit pulp.

Actually, John, yeah. Yeah I do. I'm actually something of a cola snob, which is a pretty rough thing to be a snob about. It's not as prestigious or cultured as wine or whiskey snobbery, nor as relatable as chocolate or beer snobbery; absolutely nobody cares about your opinion on the relative merits of Boylan's vs. Pig Iron Cola.

I check 7chan so infrequently now. I opened this thread to comment on the OP's image, then realised that I already did. It makes me feel bittersweet to find that literally no one in this thread remembers that /eh/ finds Coke too interesting :(

Dear John,
I have a mouse infestation and the smart rodents eat my bait without setting the traps off. I find it ironic that I am the one actually feeding them, ha

I'd throw in raisins, and eat that myself.

The key is to leave nothing for the mice to eat.
Dry goods need steel or glass containers; even steel has limits.

Hey John,
A neighbor of mine once had an issue with mice. He had good results with a trap made from a two-liter soda bottle, with the top cut off, inverted, and inserted in the body of the bottle. Same method one would use to make a soda bottle into a fish trap, really, instructions are all over google. Anyway, in the fullness of time he eventually successfully caught all mice in his residence, and released them into the wild on the other side of town.

Best of luck with your infestation.
-John

Doesn't work. They'll eat wood, insulation, anything and everything. They move inside because its warm and they don't want to freeze to death. They'll eat anything to stay alive until spring comes.

Either trap them or they'll eat through some wiring and start a house fire, assuming you get tired of the fuse/breaker blowing so you stick a bigger amp fuse/breaker in there.

Hey John

I'm glad to hear you are feeling at least a little better. Sometimes hot tea helps me when I'm feeling under the weather but it's different for everyone I guess.

Best wishes

Hey john,

please try to be healthier in the future, an active lifestyle, fruits, vitamins, and a lot of water will help to deter such an illness. I wish you good luck in the future john.

John

The moon is quite nice when you look at it through a telescope.

Any old telescope will do, pick up a basic spyglass at a garage sale and look at it one cloudless night.

I like the moon better than the sun because if you stare at the sun for even a minute your eyes'll burn out of your skull but you can stare at the moon for hours comfortably.

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

As long as you feel good about it then that's what counts. I actually made a career change since I last wrote you, so now I am handling marketing for another dealership. My desk is no longer a shared one so I am happy with the current arrangements.

Good Evening John

That's good to hear, not much changed on my end. The store is running out of supervises but they never promote me to that position but it is alright.

Hello again John

I think if you were ever given that position you'd find it not worth the hassle anyways. Supervisors are often not given much of a pay increase in comparison to their increased responsibilities. That said my new job has less pay but also less hours so as long as I can pay my bills I'm happy to have more time to pursue personal interests.

Good afternoon, John,

I am struggling bringing myself to work. I have what many people may find to be a dream job: I work from home, make my own hours and my boss encourages me to "round up" my hours to the nearest 10. That said, I don't particularly like the field I got my degree in. My parents pressured me to go to college when I did not want to go, so I picked a field I had studied back in middle school as a hobby.

Nowadays, I am not at all like what I was like in middle school, and I find this particular field to be quite drab. I don't hate it, but I often struggle to bring myself to work.

Some people tell me to quit, but it's not like I'd enjoy any other kind of work, either.

John,

I am very sorry to hear that you do not particularly enjoy the field that you are in. I think you should take up some hobbies in your spare time until you find something youd like to study and work on that.

life is much too short to spend it doing something you would not like to do when you dont have to. Do you get what Im explaining here. What is the point in it if it does not bring you somekind of introspective revelation or spiritual enjoyment. Find your passion and pursue it man. The rest will follow in due time.

I truly do wish you the absolute best and hope you find happiness and wellness.

Regards,
John

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

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.

John Smith 17/10/25(Wed)07:36 No. 46257

Hello john.
Here in Finland, it is legal for a minor to posses and smoke cigarettes, but it is illegal to sell them any. The only person who can get in trouble is the adult buying cigarettes for a minor or the worker on the cash register, if he/she sells any cigarettes to a minor, even by accident.
The rule goes, that anybody, who looks under 30, must be asked to show his ID when buying cigarettes. It gets weird with alcohol. With alcohol, you need to be 18 to buy any, but if its stronger alcohol, like 40%, you need to be 20.
So if you first come and buy alcohol, while looking 18, you don't need to show any ID, but if you come back and buy some cigarettes, its a must.
In a bar, things work differently.
In a bar, anybody can buy cigarettes and even when your'e only 18, you can still buy strong alcohol(40%+)
BUT by law a cannot be sold alcohol, if it's for intoxication(If you want to get drunk).

What is also interesting is the "quit smoking" products. If a minor goes to a doctor and tells that hes addicted to tobacco, he can have a prescription for nicotine band-aids. There are also these nicotine free snus/snuff bags, that are only for adult, because they resemble the tobacco products. So its easier for a minor to get nicotine by a doctor that to quit smoking with nicotine free products.

I hope i didn't make too boring of a text, i'm still drinking my morning coffee and my brain isn't working on a full speed so i may have spoken something offtopic.
Yours truly
John
