this is a country of 600k people

2017-05-24 13:48:13 UTC  

in even such a small place

2017-05-24 13:48:24 UTC  

we have at least thousands of people who are consdiered super-duper "qualified"

2017-05-24 13:48:45 UTC  

i can scan their entire life and find nothing exceptional

2017-05-24 13:48:53 UTC  

not only in material matters

2017-05-24 13:49:06 UTC  

but their life isn't enjoyable at all thanks to their qualifications, nor do they produce anything

2017-05-24 13:49:16 UTC  

they are just another guy with a job to do for somebody else

2017-05-24 13:50:54 UTC  

it's better not to invest yourself in these matters, and even if you do something merely to get paid, at least you remain detached

2017-05-24 13:51:22 UTC  

for let's face it, the only really and in it's substance dignified and enjoyable work is the one that nobody gives you a paycheck for

2017-05-24 13:53:03 UTC  

in today's world adult working life means being deprived of all dignity, personal agency or self expression in even the slightest matters

2017-05-24 13:54:19 UTC  

I am starting to hate the shit out of psychiatry

2017-05-24 13:54:43 UTC  

they talk as if depression is a brain disorder, not a natural reaction to the world as it presents itself

2017-05-24 13:54:56 UTC  

"it's a brain disorder where you don't have enough serotonin lol"

2017-05-24 13:55:33 UTC  

do you live in a big city

2017-05-24 13:55:34 UTC  

horrible experience of life with no hope for the future->fucking magnets->magical decrease in serotonin->pill fixes it

2017-05-24 13:55:39 UTC  


2017-05-24 13:55:47 UTC  

a hive

2017-05-24 13:55:51 UTC  


2017-05-24 13:55:54 UTC  

dalit hive

2017-05-24 13:56:03 UTC  

I am in a small town for the first time and it's a world of difference

2017-05-24 13:56:17 UTC  

well yeah you live on the scale people were meant to live

2017-05-24 13:56:33 UTC  

we are moving right now and we have to be home so dalits can come into our place and look at it

2017-05-24 13:57:16 UTC  

yeah. it feels that way. I have plans to move back to a city in a year or two but I'm trying to slither out of it. after a year of walking to work I can't imagine getting in a car and joining the freeway of ants

2017-05-24 13:58:01 UTC  

it's funny how a long commute --> magnets --> no seratonin

2017-05-24 13:59:27 UTC  


2017-05-24 13:59:37 UTC  

hellish life->???->omg brain chemicals 😦

2017-05-24 13:59:48 UTC  

maybe, just maybe, we are people and this is an unacceptable way to live

2017-05-24 14:00:00 UTC  

just a thought I guess

2017-05-24 14:56:17 UTC  

a person I work with has been out of the office for two days at a critical time

2017-05-24 14:56:22 UTC  

due to an asthma attack

2017-05-24 14:56:45 UTC  

which would normally not bother me except that knowing he has asthma really makes his thrice daily smoke breaks look pretty fucking stupid

2017-05-24 15:00:47 UTC  

@UOC your job seems to be evil

2017-05-24 15:00:51 UTC  

How do you cope

2017-05-24 15:01:42 UTC  

Or is it not an issue?

2017-05-24 15:01:57 UTC  

The only people hurt by my job are the corporate structure of power companies

2017-05-24 15:02:11 UTC  

who have a state-granted monopoly on a service area

2017-05-24 15:02:44 UTC  

I see. Does it not introduce a large amount of bureaucratic inefficiency

2017-05-24 15:02:55 UTC  

Leading to effects ar the bottom

2017-05-24 15:03:07 UTC  

I.e. workforce of those power companies?

2017-05-24 15:03:24 UTC  

They need to by federal law
