MODS: The topics are wide and deep but "NWO" sounds about right on my first guess. Move as necessary.

A feverous, drunken, fuge state and my mind is racing at 2? 4? 7 AM?

You are all being tested. How much crap you can put up with. How much you are willing to pay for anything approaching luxury. How you handled working from home.

It started with blank cupboards and a combined trip to the bar and food shopping. I grabbed another 4-pack of beer, some cereal, then noticed the freezers looked like The Walking Dead! Crap flung everywhere! No order. But if you dug around, then you could find your favorite frozen pizza flavor. Look! Here is vanilla bean ice cream mixed in with all the other stuff. Oh look! Root beer! I could make floats...

That is pretty much the first time I noticed that something was wrong. We are being given what we want to "calm us down" (sometimes a good sugar rush and crash is better than a week of granola).

"Here is your pizza order (see? Just like on TV. Get fat, don't be a pain....). Do you want a milkshake with that?? Did you get more alcohol? You have three days coming open next week and we can't have you being sober too many days in a row!"

And that thought there sent me down the rabbit hole.

We are already here. We have already adapted. They already know how much crap we will put up with while we work from our own prisons we call "home" because of those dumb "membership" cards!! For crying out loud, you are giving them information about your spending habits with a smile on your face!

Maybe this alcoholic bunny finally understood how the Warren works while waiting, in bed, just to wake up to cook my meal, do an 8 hour shift, then drown it out with more alcohol!

Just so happens that I am further out on the ice... and someone may have forgot about... the war has been over for months and we are still finding soldiers still fighting the war.

Will you ever know what war you are fighting? When did you start? When will it end? Do you trust those above you "in control"???

I trust this style of authority even less what is currently in place. Standing back, looking at my computer terminal, my cot, my phone, I wonder what kind of crap hole I have stepped in.

Where we go from here is the scary part!!

(And these were the happy thoughts! -TEOT)

Maybe I shouldn't be drinking vodka...

It is all "telescoping" putting quaint proclivities using the opera glasses the fat head forgot about on the floor. A group of young men playing at being a landed lord complete with twig swords; a king with nothing to rule, a dead salmon frozen in a waterfall...

And I feel like I am abetting the enemy by playing my role. Food, money, alcohol, has not changed this feeling. It has only given me a glimpse of the murky waters below...

While you walk the street looking at people.

And you know nothing of the sorts as you learn of a new graveyard but wait then there is the old graveyard. Your head flys with a swing to the right and now your gold tooth is on the pavement while you declare that means it's a famine graveyard. No you're wrong again just like every other time as there are famine graveyards all over the country land including in farmers fields that haven't ever been marked and for good reason yet why you may ask.
Because you're wrong and not only that but you look at people and for one reason only.

C'mon! Dinst though read the first sentence??

These are not conscious thoughts but through all sources of distraction they have surfaced.

And stop judging books by their cover...

Sorry, (not sorry) but my cupboards are full with soap li especially and new foods I've finally decided to try. When the "S" high the fan I had retired two years earlier, and the pandemic (with its shortages) fired up my creativity, giving me the nudge I needed to develop my culinary skills.

So while folks were fighting over the last box of Mac and cheese and the last frozen pizza, I was exploring stir fry and making sorbet from fresh fruit. Where I live, there's a large multi-ethnic population, and many of them garden as much as they breathe. So there's always fresh veggies and fruit to pick from at farmer's markets and roadside stands.

Booze? I don't drink much, never really enjoyed the feeling of being inebriated. But I've got a few bottles of champagne and some good wine in the wine fridge, should the mood take me.

"They" can only track your buying habits if you use their "membership cards"; I do, since I don't care if they know what brand of laundry detergent I prefer. If, for some reason I'm embarrassed to be buying hemorrhoid cream, I'll just pay cash; or smile to myself as I think about some TPTB-minion's interest in my bleeding a$$! LOL!

Perhaps, once the alcohol wears off, and you "dry out" a bit you'll come to realize, as I have, that you can only be kept a "prisoner" by your own consent, a "victim" of "powers greater than yourself", if you believe that such powers even exist to give enough of a rat's furry behind to care that you exist.

We build our own prisons, and lock our own selves within them.

Largely, I think, because it so much easier to blame the "other" for the failures and disappointments in our lives, than to accept our own weaknesses and responsibilities. Victims and prisoners don't have to take responsibility for their actions, or inactions, so they cannot be held accountable for the circumstances that they find themselves in, right?

Course, by that logic, they have no right to claim ownership or glory for any of their accomplishments, either.

Not that they ever accomplish much, beyond cirrhosis of the liver, and breeding another generation of sorry victims just like themselves.

To paraphrase something I read on another thread,

"Some see Opportunity in every dilemma. Others see Dilemma in every opportunity. The choice is ours to make."

Just to try and keep further jackassery at bay...

I have 2 college degrees, a well paying job but that is probably because it can become 24x7 at the drop of a hat, so yeah, it is two people, in a silo, with the codes, and a couple of pistols.

From my point of view (they do everything but empty my trash), WE HAVE ALREADY LOST.

Either figure it out yourself. Or find a job, away from mankind, where you can put the correct numbers together and join our conversation.

The reason we can't have anything nice around here...

Feel funny? Should we all point and laugh? Now you have the floor, let's see what content falls out your mouth.

First, this is not "funny" in any way. Just a note from a remote ice station actually reporting back the vileness that is just "there". Maybe I was too smart in my presentation, who cares. The important thing is you are already a step behind. Most people will struggle to keep up. And this all mostly "gut feelings" on the near future.

Second, I don't do these types of threads. But something (???) has surrounded me and left me few options (and this is way before it starts), even as it placates basic needs (heck, what is "it"???).

Anybody else feel this way?

I think i understand where you're coming from teo. I left ats for the most part a few years ago cause i couldn't stand the stupidity anymore. Ignorance and arrogant. The average ats poster has it in spades. Its one of the ugliest combos in humanity. Even the so-called smarty-pants here seem to miss a lot, and its no wonder why no actual insiders and actually accomplished smart people reach out to them. Its all so sophomoric. Which literary translates in Latin to stupid people who think they're smart. That sums up ats. You got the ufo crowd where even their "experts" spin their tires for years accomplishing jack shyte their whole lives. They talk a lot but never got anything to say. But hey it makes them feel smart. Teo you need a better home. To be around smart people again. Around your own kind. Youre getter than this.

First of all i refuse to adhere to being called smarty pants but know this.
Over the years of my personal Above Top Secret experience and in no different time frame than yours or anybody else's meaning a decade or so there has been very little ignorance as well as arrogance which isn't so bad depending on who it's coming from as all true ATS members know well those are the grounds at which the great boat is dead solid against even if most people fail to define the word ignorance correctly but what there has been in recent years is alot of dirt has blown in from out beyonder, dirty minds, dirty opinions along with dirty schematic whilst fruitless hamster on a wheel type input that any right minded individual can find difficult to get around, over or through.
Having said that as they say, it pleases me to see there is improvement with both the shy away and be humbled or simply the change your attitude line we did connigleedrum that has conspired knowing there are no hard feelings and enough with the drama.
The civilisation is falling apart piece by piece and at the seams.
Be a parent, i am going to take care of the rest.
