Dear John, do any of you get tired of the politicising of marriage and family?
So what if people choose to remain single?
Its not the end of the world.

The irony is? Men are accused of ruining gender relations with alleged immaturity just because young women are desperate to marry and their make peers aren't going for that.
Strange huh?
Young men are told that "nobody, especially women, owe you anything."
Yet, young women feel entitled to have the loyalty of their male peers.

The older I get the more I realize love isn't not just everything but a pretty unnecessary nuance. I desire it simply because I am biologically determined too, but, at this point if I never end up married I could really care less.

No, they don't, and young men don't feel entitled to either. Young men and women alike, by and large, are pretty chill once you get to know 'em instead of quixotically tilting at windmills like a terminally online goof.

Dear John, maybe it matters not you, but it saddens me that adults are very big on individuality, are resentful of extending it towards children. I notice that almost all parenting articles are black-and-white when it comes to dealing with kids. The very notion of giving kids breathing room makes people indignant.
People love to talk about how they want to teach kids to be a part of life, yet most of their "teachings" are nothing more than master-pet relations.

I notice that adults are very reactive to kids making mistakes or being casual/worldly, yet theyre ignorant/indifferent to bullying.

Adults seem to resent seeing kids in large groups, yet theyre irritated seeing them lonesome anywhere.
Kids whom are exiberant and curious are "disrespectful/annoying" yet kids whom are quiet and unresponsive are seen as "soulless".


It really makes you think does it? I thought adults were supposed.to be mature and humane.
But, mutual respect and reasonable persoanl free time is for adults only, huh?

IMO there's nothing wrong with that unless it's done in excess. Abstaining from fun things completely is a waste of a life. What matters is that they don't do it frequently enough that it becomes damaging.

If this happened to you, how would you respond?

l have studied cell biology for all my life.

2 years ago (late 2019): leave PhD program during my 5th year with my masters since my lab decided to stop working on my research and simply take it for themselves

Since then: no job offers or responses on 1000+ applications. No income.

I have a handle on my situation . But I'm wondering if anyone has any salient advice for me. The advice I get from the people in my life has been completely unconstructive. So I'm seeing what advice bots have.

Something to do while I nurse this tequila.

Background: bachelor's from John's Hopkins university in cell biology. Worked in several cell biology laboratories for free during high school and college. Graduate research was in cancer cell metabolism at a major metropolitan university. After 4 and a half years, laboratory stopped working on my project and after 9 more months I left with master's degree since they made it clear they were going to waste time until I left.

I haven't had a single job offer in my field or outside of it in the two years since. Many (1000+) many job applications.

Saddly I can't, if you understand. Then you know why. I ain't looking for symphony ( that time it was a joke ).

Got friend who got his chem. deg. went to look for work. crap shit like basic lab tech trained monkey.
After failing the frist three he popped round to see me chew the cud and he mentioned what had happened .
I told him he had over prepepped. Done to much research for the job, went back and asked his teachers about each job.
Then I told him to dumb down on the next one as the people interveiwing you. Will be looking at you going this guy is goning to my job in the next five years. He was top of the year/class , had won a small award.

So he dails it back a bit. Gets the next job. Holds that down for couple of years. Then quits to do and gets his masters.
which lead into a job. Leaves there to do doc. get that works for part of the gov. Ain't into it, leave comes back home to look after his Mum. Gets second top job at the frist place he worked.
Bitchs about all the young kids with deg.'s who thought that a dumb bit of paper was going to be their ticket to be intanstly rich and how they do half arsed work that he has to end up doing.

Now he's doing something else with doc. in chemistry.

What does VN has instead of level design?
You know various game genres and most of all have it's own
levels. You have played enough to have own opinion and feelings about computer games. And on most of them you are moving behind different objects, fighting, talking, racing, trading with and against different characters and machines. There is designers work behind level creation and object placement of them. Strong professionals also take care about the golden ratio, you can see it at least in Quake, Sin, Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit 2, Amid Evil, Ion Fury.
But when it comes to visual novels, it breaks the common structure: levels are bunch of text and images. And when it comes to level design in this game genre: what matters? And what does this design really represent as work, as process and as an object placement?

John is right, try to see it as a novel instead of a game. It is in the name, after all.

Oh no, I put a few too many diced carrots into my chicken soup. The concern is not the flavour that carrots lack but the colour dominance and liquid volume per bowl.

I'm having trouble sleeping. I laid down for a while, and now I'm not. I'm still tired, but laying down is making me antsy.

Dear John

Let us write a story together.
I am pretty confident, that we can create something great together.

I shall start:
John shut down his computer and stared at the now black screen in front of him for what seemed ages.

John's finger freezes and falls off into the coffee. After falling into a long thirty minute nap, he cries at the top of his lungs.
"My finger! My finger! My index finger!"
Suddenly he caught himself in the midst of the stinging pain of frostbite. He dazed into the thick, frozen coffee. He was intrigued. He remembered his coffee to be quite hot only forty five minutes ago, but he remembered that it became awfully cold only five minutes after he placed it on his desk.
"I wonder what kind of witchcraft that could possibly be."
John, after staring intently into the frozen coffee, grabs the cup with his four remaining fingers and tries to chug it down. The coffee slides into his mouth, a long chuck that his lips could barely wrap around, and he accidentally swallows it. His finger was in the coffee, but John felt no such feeling as disgust as his own finger is now caged into a block of black ice and inside of his mouth. The ice slipped into his throat, and, unable to swallow it down, John collapses onto the ground... choking... dying... and eventually dead. Nobody knew that he died but his landlord.

-100 years later-

John's arm punched through the coffin and dug out of the ground. He was reborn now, but no longer as a human or a corpse. He was reborn as a bloodthirsty beast.
"Ah. At last! I have slept for too long!" he roared. "It is time for my dinner." He jumped through the cemetary and punched through a passing taxi. He bit the taxi driver's neck and sucked the man's blood dry.
"You shall be reborn and serve under me!" he chuckled like a demon. The taxi driver remained dead for an hour but was brought back to life by John's power. The taxi driver was now the same creature as John, and would come to be his bestfriend and his ally.
"You—" John called to the man, "What say your name?"
"My name—" the former taxi driver said haughtily, "is Smith."

(too much effort, calm down man)

interesting to note that dear john, being the common clause, if that is the correct term, that starts many threads also resembles the cliche "dear john" letters received in the military.

Hey John,
I actually find it kind of comforting myself. Funny we're both John, but I guess that's a common coincidence.
