In a dark deserted basement, sitting down in my chair
Dust from my computer fan, rising up through the air
Up the stairs to the main floor, my wife blocked out the light
My head grew heavy and my sight grew dim
I had to stop for the night
As she stood in the doorway
I heard the notification bell
And I was thinking to myself,
“This could be heaven or this could be Hell”
Then she turned from the doorway, and went to bed all alone.
There were voices from my speakers,
I thought I heard one say..

Welcome to the website reddit.com
Such a lonely place (Such a lovely place)
Such a lonely face
Plenty of room at the website reddit.com
Any time of year(any time of year)
You can find geeks there.

NSFW links are twisted, if you go there depends
Are you easily disgusted, is it a dare from your friends?
Some are nudes, some mislabeled, some you’ll easily forget
But you better consider carefully, or you’ll always regret.

So I called up a friend,
“Have you reddit too?”
He said “I haven’t been logged out one time since two-thousand and two”
And still those voices are calling from far away,
Wake you up in the middle of the day,
Just to hear them say…

Welcome to the domain reddit.com
Such a lonely place (Such a lovely place)
Such a lonely face
They linkin’ it up at the domain reddit.com
Was someone not nice? (what a nice surprise)
Bring your angry eyes

Karma whores on the front page
Trolls pretend to play nice
And she said "We are all just prisoners here, of our own device"
And in the subreddit chambers
An AMA goes on all night
Novelty accounts VS ShitRedditSays
But the mods just can’t kill the fight.

Last thing I remember, I was
Clicking more and more,
I had to find that passage back
To the link I was before.
“Relax,” said WhiteEternalKnight Man
“We are Programmed to receive,
You can log-out any time you like,
But you can never leave!”

Edit: Found someone else's take on this from 2 years ago.

If I thought they were going to keep the card, I'd put porn on it.

Does the vicodin: stop the pain, lessen the pain, or make you not care about the pain?

I kinda get the impression that it lessens and makes you care less about the pain.

How do you feel on muscle relaxers, have you tried flexerol or similar?

When I had nerve pain, from a back injury, the vicodin didn't touch the pain, just my perception of it. The flexerall made the pain much more tolerable as it relaxed the muscles that were bearing down on the nerve.

Any MRIs to look for a pinched nerve?

I'm sure you already know these things

I'm sure he does. I see how you interpreted:

I know they are concerned about parental concerns of exposing their sons to overnights with someone who might have joined the Scouts for the wrong reason.

But I think you are confusing the messenger with the message.

In my troop there are many parents that are concerned about this possible change to scouting, many wrongfully assume that gay=predator. It doesn't. The national council has confirmed many times that the issue of homosexuality in scouting has never been a concern about predators. IIRC, pedophilia is found at a lower rate in gay men then in straight men (but I don't have a citation for that right now.)

He was just saying that the national council recognizes that there are parents who are (wrongfully) concerned about this. Not that he himself is concerned about gay people. I am an Eagle scout, a parent, a volunteer, and next in line to be scoutmaster in the next 24 months. I welcome the change to scouting because it is the right change to make as decent human beings.

Glad it worked out for you. I am an American and am scheduled for a lumbar MRI for a possible bulged disc in less than four hours. The cost will be $2100 for the scan and $633 for some one to read it. I am suffering great leg pain for five weeks, it has changed my perspective on life. I have a list of simple things written out to do with my wife and kids when I am pain free again. Include go for walks, play more with my kids, take them on bike rides, and go to the beach and swim with them.

Has this experience changed your outlook on life and your choice of activities?
