The 2am thread
RE: The 2am thread
The time is 2 o' clock.

2 o' clock, ever think of what that phrase means? deconstructed-wise? "2 of clock." The time is 2 as according to clocks, yup yup, 2 of the clocks. like it's a tarot card reading or something

2, in orientation to how clocks keep track of time, because it's not like numbers have a tangible existence in accordance to the passage of matter through timespace, and therefore we must invent one according to predictable patterned observations and mark them somehow

RE: The 2am thread
before clocks were a thing, people couldn't express their current position in timespace in a way that is relative to others' in an exact and precise time through the oclocks.

I mean there were sundials before mechanical clocks, but those were much more limited in number as it'd have to be in fixed places where you've done all the measurements according to the sun's ever-changing position throughout the year, so they'd definitely be limited in number. your layperson going about their daily biz would have much less handy access to knowing a precise bearing on their current time. and you could forget about it during the night or cloudy times.

before sundials, or while absent of a working sundial, you'd have to ballpark it in relating it to others, like "after high noon" or while the moon is still lowish and there's still a faint twilight glow."

think about that, living in a life where you are missing the ability to conceptualize time in discrete units. chew on it

let your mouthwater wash it over and the spit enzymes break it down

yum

and even with clocks, it wasn't until the 1800s before clocktime was internationally standardized, with time zones. you'd have times differ from city to city by a number of minutes.

so it's fun to think how the life experience during the majority of most of humanity's short stay on earth has had a perception of time different from hours ours

i want indivisible to be made and good even though it has bits thats are total messes because its like, so many good character designs and concepts a lot are just way better than skullgirls characters but its like, theres so much cultural appropriation and its such, a weird thing but its like, one of those things where im a selfish fuck who doesnt care because it looks nice and isnt trying to be disrespectful or anything and that doesnt really matter in thelong run but i dont know im not actually really paying attention to it i just want it lmao

RE: The 2am thread
im so scared and paranoid and i feel so unsafe and i want to be safe and cared for but i cant and that sucks so instead i play a hotboy catboy and hang out with people who are infinitely better at me at video games bc thats the funny thing im kind of bad at video games because if things go wrong i fail and flail and panic and mess things up and i wont ever have perfect tank pulls or perfect heals or remember to use everything and all im really good at is straight up fighting one boss as a tank because i dont have to move and i can just focus on cooldown management and aoe dodgeing instead of making sure that the enemies are in good spots for the dps and for their aoes and managing ther different positions and stuff..... ha ha ha.....

RE: The 2am thread
before this (desperatey needed) long weekend, I'd actually gotten myself to bed by 1am most work nights under the delusion that if I weren't so far gone that I was eligible to post in the 2am Thread, I'd totally be a credible employee and not a faker fake covert millennial not trying hard enough to keep her job nailed down.

RE: The 2am thread
Things I actually did got done this weekend:

Mailed box to one of the boyfriends
Failed to mail box to the other boyfriend
Cried in a post office parking lot after a long day and incompetent postal services rendered

Made a cat brooch thing?
Made a goddamn mess of my apartment
Bought some socks for various people
Did a dickton of laundry
Did not put away a dickton of laundry, two days later
Ate, I think?
Drank a lot of yogurt
Threw out one garbage bag
Went to my first gynaecology appointment ever
Didn't find a hat for my dad, will work on that tomorrow along with taking out the trash to the dump

RE: The 2am thread
Okay so first things first, although I normally am in Central Time, I'm back home in Eastern Time over Thanksgiving break so even though this website and my computer both think I'm posting at 1AM, it's 2AM where I actually am, so it totally counts. I mean, I'm not going to be awake for another hour to post in Central Time 2AM thread, and I wouldn't dare exploit that.

So anyway, I'm back to this forum because of the addition of the Fortuna chat here because gay robots have taken over my life and don't you tell me that's not what Fortuna is about because it totally is. Anyway, now that I'm back I still go to other parts because why would you only stay on one part of a forum? Exactly.

Also I'm looking for grad schools and such because it's my senior year in college and I haven't gotten that far in working on it, and as well as having to do that over break, I have like two papers and two projects that I need to work on, plus my mom wants me to clean up the house so it can be put onto the market and it's like I have no time to myself to unwind from the last few weeks.

Oh, and the reason I'm up so late is because I'm having an existential crisis. I mean, that's normal for everyone, right? It's especially not worse because it's been a year since I first came out as ace to someone in person (and I mean someone because it was only my cousin who got married to her girlfriend over the summer and she was the only one who I'd trust) and now this is just adding on to that deal. Like, my parents don't know that I'm X and now I might also be Y? That's surely not a recipe for things going wrong. Yeah, so just throw this on top of everything else that I'm dealing with over the break and you've got a great recipe for everything being hunky-dory.

So, how's everyone else who is up at this ungodly hour doing? I'm totally fine, thanks for not asking. That wasn't meant to be passive-agressive, it was just meant to be sarcastic-sarcastic. I tend to get sarcastic when I'm going through hard times or I'm really tired (and both are true). I mean, it's so hard to tell from this. There was like one sarcastic thing in the whole message.

Wow, could it be? the possibility of a conversation happening in real time in the 2AM thread?!?!

HI kieros sorry to hear about being conscripted into the gender wars, which are relentless and unforgiving.
