I was going to post mine but it's cluttered with too much personal artwork that might be identifying, lol. Let's just agree @Strategist's desktop is the best. Damn. That's a fine desktop.

 

It's cheating but just do what I do! Right click -> view -> untick show desktop icons :3c

#2013537 Strat's Gaming Rig Build

Posted by Turnip on 03 August 2017 - 10:45 AM

Y'all got great rigs and I'm just like "My house is too small for a rig rip me"

 

To add to Adam's post, there are miniature GPUs which are just as powerful (I think the Zotac GTX 1080 mini is slightly more powerful than a regular 1080?) as the big ones ^^ All I ever hear is praise for the 1060 mini. Look at how itty bitty it is!!

 

Spoiler

 

When I build my rig down the road I'm tempted to make a mini-ITX build.... The biggest issues I've heard surrounding those sorta builds in the past is that they can be super noisy, but apparently its not as bad anymore? So that's pretty cool!! I'm just hoping someone makes a tiny RX480/580 during a time when I have money since that's the one I would want :(

#2004684 Calling all sewers - dress makeover!!

Posted by Turnip on 06 April 2017 - 05:53 PM

The colour scheme reminds me of grey and ginger cats, so maybe something like this might work out?

I dunno if that's your kinda style though. But if nothing works out you could just keep it as something to lounge around the house in? :0




#2004234 Unpopular Opinions

Posted by Turnip on 30 March 2017 - 01:48 PM

I don't really like hiphop or edm

Kind of gives me a headache

 

I've noticed a lot of popular EDM songs around all follow the same sort of pattern. Builds up, background music cuts out and the vocalist says a short phrase, then the bass drops and the song continues. Rinse and repeat. It's really boring!! You could probably stack like 10 songs on top of each other and they would all cut out at around the same time and all follow a very similar trend.

 

Instrumental hiphop/jazzhop is pretty damn good!! Never really listen to it though.




#2003344 "Paranoid Schizophrenia"

Posted by Turnip on 19 March 2017 - 08:33 PM

That's the thing is I've been dealing with this for probably close to 5 years or so now, and I've seen countless doctors, been on numerous different medications, tried all kinds of different coping skills, nothing works, everytime I hear a cough it just kills me inside... it interrupts my thought process, it literally makes me physically sick to my stomach, it makes me sad and withdrawn and it just ruins whatever mood I'm in. And like I said, it happens l-i-t-e-r-a-l-l-y- e-v-e-r-y-w-h-e-r-e I go and with e-v-e-r-y-o-n-e...

Well... I don't know what to tell you then. A relative of mine was the same in a way (for background info: they likely developed schizophrenia+bipolar due to trauma, developed noticeable symptoms in their late teens/early 20s, didn't begin receiving treatment when they were finally not simply diagnosed with depression until just a few years ago when they were in their mid 50s.... And they were only diagnosed with it because something incredibly bad happened). They would ask me "what does this gesture mean?" then do something like rub their eye or brush their hair out of their face. They found people coughing as noticeable and annoying as you do, and would ask me why people did it constantly. Ask if it was intentional. Our other relative was a smoker and he would drive them up the wall from coughing so much. They would ask me why certain thing seems to always happen after something else happens, I can't remember any examples though. They would ask if there was a deeper meaning to some simple phrase that was told to them. But... Even after telling them time and time and time again that it's all unrelated to anything, nothing to worry about, that people just cough/rub their faces/adjust themselves while sitting/etc because they're uncomfortable at that moment of simply out of boredom... They kept asking. They would get so frustrated and angry from these things. I'm pretty sure they understood that these things weren't happening solely to make them suffer, but their schizophrenia wasn't allowing that. Having conflicting thoughts like that must have been rough for them.

I'm just not sure what to tell you. I never really figured out what sort of thing to say in response to these sorta things. Like Kaddict said, it's just noticeable because you're expecting it to happen and it really truly doesn't go deeper than that. If you don't expect it to happen and know it's unrelated to your ultimately random action, you just don't think about it. The person would have coughed if you did this action, that action, or simply left the area. They might not have coughed from any of it. Anything could have happened because there are too many possible variables and outcomes. @Elindoril's relative was asking us recently, when you place an item down somewhere, if it occasionally rattles while settling. We said it's always been like that and she said it never really seemed to happen to her before, and she said it's been happening a lot lately and it's driving her nuts. But that's the thing! It's always happened. It's an ordinary, boring, everyday thing that isn't worth remembering. But now that it's in her mind, she notices happen every time it happens. You know what I'm sayin with all this?

Now that my relative is on some medications that mostly agree with them (it took them a long time to find medications they work with their body), they don't notice these sorta things happening anymore. They don't get angry anymore. Like... It's totally understandable why they would get so angry. Their body and mind must have been under so much pressure that it was unbearable. Lashing out like that happens when you get stressed out, right? But now that they aren't under that much pressure anymore it's all okay. That's why I originally suggested medication. If it helped them then even though everyone's bodies are different it might help you too. I didn't know about your medical history so please understand. I just want to try and help you if possible, but it reminds me of before my relative started receiving medication. We're both at a block in the road where there's no current solution to moving the block out of the way. Please don't interpret the tone of this as negative but I don't know what do you want to be told? I don't know what to do even though I know at the end of the day there's nothing I can do. But know that you aren't struggling alone if you personally find comfort in that. It might just take more fighting to find something that works with you. I know it's easy to just say nothing worked in the past and nothing will ever to work in the future, but don't give in to negativity like that. It's corny as hell but here we are.

#2001076 Ask LGBT+ people anything!

Posted by Turnip on 08 February 2017 - 09:01 AM

 "If Gays can be married, why not make polygamy legal too? Why not make that 60 year old man marry the 15 year old, they might have true love!" 

 

Personally, I disagree with that statement because I just don't think polygamy and pedophilia is right.  However, just saying "it just isn't right" won't cut it for me. How could one differentiate the LGBTQ community with polygamists or pedophiles?

 

There's a very, very large difference between sex between consenting adults and people who are unable to give consent. Three or more consenting adults in a polygamous relationship is fine. A man taking advantage of a young girl is absolutely not fine for obvious reasons.




#2000884 Post Your Last Purchase

Posted by Turnip on 04 February 2017 - 10:39 AM

Holy moly!! Buckle up kiddos it's story time. A small miracle happened and I just gotta share the story.

 
So I posted this back mid December:
 

I want even just the opportunity to purchase this album ;_;
https://m.soundcloud...i-chan/fnwr-006

I know, I know, "piracy!!!!" but I want to own the actual thing.

 
It's a little weird how all I said was that I wanted nothing more than the opportunity to buy it, right? Implying that I would be fine if it was available for sale somewhere but someone bought it before me, just knowing that a copy exists out there. It's so incredibly, ungodly rare that just knowing that someone *has it* and that they're actually willing to part with it would be some pretty great news, you know?
 
So the night after making that post, I had a dream where the group who made this announced that they would be reprinting small amounts of their old albums and will be periodically restocking their online store. That included this album. I was ecstatic!! They hardly ever restock their online store so I was getting ready to type up an email to my shipping proxy (as the site doesn't ship their goods outside of Japan) so we could both start camping out and waiting for those restocks. But ahh, then I woke up. The good news was of course too good to be true.
 
But after having that dream I checked out this secondhand website I use to see if anyone put anything up from this group on there. Might as well, right? So I looked and there it was!! It was right there. The album was actually listed for sale for the first time in who even knows how long. But you know what? My shipping proxy was abroad when it went up and wasn't taking any orders until he got back to Japan. I was sweating bullets, man! I was watching the listing and (im)patiently waiting for my proxy to say he's back home.
 
But now, after waiting a while for the package to arrive, have a look!!

Words can't even begin to describe just how happy I am!!! This is seriously one of my top 5 albums, if not #1 favourite. That's really saying something because boy howdy not only am I indecisive, I also love a whole load of albums.

#1999414 Veganism(/vegetarianism but mostly veganism)

Posted by Turnip on 05 January 2017 - 04:36 PM

I never really had to transition either because I was raised as a vegetarian straight from day 1 >w<

 

If you're cooking up a dish that would normally contain meat, sometimes you can replace it with potatoes/tofu/sometimes beans, or meat substitutes if you like those/are available to you. I know about the whole thing where they can affect your hormones, but surely if you eat them every once in a while it won't be that bad for your body :p Anyway! It all depends on the dish but it's good to keep those alternates in mind. So when Elin and I make curries, to bulk it up (and also have more for me to eat) we'll include his chicken and some potatoes for both of us and I'll pick the chicken out for him. Speaking of curries, a load of those can be turned into vegetarian/vegan if they aren't already off the bat, so with Indian/Vietnamese/Chinese/Japanese/Thai/I can't even list all the different variations here you'll have plenty of selection ^^ I loooove my butter chicken curry and tikka masala, and Japanese curry too. But I've barely scratched the surface when it comes to that whole world of food so there's a whole bunch of discovering I still have to do!! Also, quinoa is fantastic as well and it's delicious. Loaded with fibre and protein!! I'm sure you'll be able to find some sold in bulk at a great price.

 

Eggs don't contain lactose and shouldn't really be considered dairy, so if you aren't going vegan because of the whole "absolutely nothing that comes from an animal" reason then I'd say keep eating those :0 Great source of protein and other important nutrients!!

 

I think the hardest part which is mostly just an inconvenience, is that when you're going to restaurants with friends (hell, even chain fast food places), you should definitely check their menu beforehand and see if they'll have anything you can eat there. It's mostly an issue with family owned joints but it's still an issue you can run into. Even today some places don't have any proper vegetarian/vegan options and you'll be stuck eating whatever appetizers instead of an actual meal. Like hell, a McDonalds near us decided to stop selling their vegetarian wraps. so outside of I don't know, asking them to make me a burger but hold the meat or getting an overpriced salad, there isn't really much of a selection for me at that specific location. At least a different one still has their Mediterranean wraps lmao




#1998782 9 Months and counting! Baby in the making!

Posted by Turnip on 27 December 2016 - 11:25 AM

(if baby lets us see the private parts lol)

 

Lmao this reminds me of when my parents went to get my gender checked, and the doctor originally told them I was a boy because of something being in between my legs. Turns out it was the umbilical cord and I can't help but wonder how they thought a baby who was still forming would have such a gigantic dong :V
