Remember when I found out my mate had cancer, felt dead inside and kept being sick. Have seen the same response in NT's sometimes. I think sometimes the mind just can't process things, knows it cant change whats happening things and the body reacts to the stress. Definitely agree though these days e...

But no. They never took me to see a professional, apparently because I was really smart. Sure, she's weird, sees things that aren't there, stares off into space suddenly, etc. etc. etc., but that's all just because she's really smart. That explains it. /eyeroll Sorry, rant over. EXACTLY!! ! I was a...

Too much, in the past 2-3 bottles of wine (normal night up for work next day) or 15-20 pints (followed by a kebab) would be a pretty normal drinking night in the UK (usually on a weekend out with mates). Unfortunately it has a limited effect on me like most pharmaceuticals and other chemicals, seem ...

Strangely enough I'm 100% straight but I was asked that on a number of occasions when I was living in the US (even when I was with a girl, but all the time in the UK I've never been asked, even when I went drinking with gay friends. I did ask in the US and they said I took too much care of my appear...

Got to be Civ4 with all the add ons and mods especially A new Dawn, adds a great level of complexity to the game and makes it interesting. This is still the game I've got the most hours playing. Almost cried when Civ V came out :( lacked so much depth (worse than Civ4 before the add on's patches hav...

Several countries have rules about conducting business from a residential property, might be worth looking that up if the talking to him doesn't work. It could be that he just doesn't realise he's making too much noise. Don't think a note will work (most people would resent that, especially certain ...

I imagine squishiness. Probably what a migraine feels like, expect in one's loins. Have to say sex helps me get over my migraines. The best quote I've heard describe sex is House - "Occam's Razor."
