    I have broken bones. If you look at an x-ray of my right arm you'll see what looks like sheet metal screws fastening a bar to the bones of my forearm.

    My chief dilemma at work is how to appear that I am productive enough to retain, but not cripple myself trying to be productive, so I may still work in the future.

    It's a fine line.

    I wish I knew of how to earn a living without risking crippling injuries.

    My co-workers go to bars and casino"s, I don't, I save most of my earnings, out of the fear that they will end.

    It's less bad than you'd think. I busted a rib playing hockey, getting kind of catapulted on the ice. Adrenaline is your friend.

    And I either finished breaking it or rebroke it about a week later, lying on my side. That hurt. But it hasn't been too bad since.

    I've never actually broken a bone, but I've had a fracture.
    Unfortunately, that fracture was my femur, so in terms of pain and recover time it was almost as bad as a real break. Allegedly, at least.

    Aside from that, I've never had a hospital trip due to injury.

    My older brother beat me from Marvel vs. Tatsunko video game. This was his very first time playing. I asked Bro have you play this game before. He said no. I didn't believe him even though he's an expert of fighting video games.

    Games of the same genre often share similar base mechanics and concepts, so he might have been telling the truth. I love fighting games and play a whole bunch of them, so I often beat my less devoted friends in games I barely play (or haven't even played yet) simply because I have a much better grasp of the "universal basics" of fighting games... OTOH, I have a friend who'll beat me 9 out of 10 times in any racing game other than Mario Kart.

    Yeah, I guess you're right about that. I just wish my brother was easy to beat.

    I am an exceptionally angry person. Everything in my life makes me angrier. I have to go out of my way to not blow a gasket because the world sucks and I can see how and why. And I see nothing wrong with that. That's not a confession to me, but I guess that is to most people.

    Me too! Let's form a support group where we all get drunk and pretend our first-world bull**** matters the slightest bit compared to not being to eat, and being able to eat matters in a universe that wouldn't notice if our entire galaxy blinked out of existence right now. Surely, we'll be much better off.

    I'm tremendously uncomfortable with any service industry, even as a customer, because I'm not sure how they work and I have a crippling fear of inconveniencing people.

    I once walked 20 minutes to a Tim Horton's in the winter, realized I had no idea how to even order properly, and walked 20 minutes back without even crossing the threshold. Of course, I apologized to my friend who I was picking up a coffee for when I got back, making this possibly the most Canadian story posted on this forum.

    More recently (as in, today) this has also led to a most unfortunate haircut.
    That's all I can think of, at any rate.

    I think shaking hands is kind of unhygienic, I prefer to wave my hand but that's rude for some people.

    One of the things worth remembering about opera is that it's not meant to be listened to in isolation: it's an audiovisual medium and you're meant to watch it as well as listen to it. There are often passages of recitative which make very dull listening because your attention is meant to be occupied by what's happening on stage. Listening to an opera in full without having watched it is a bit like listening to a (complete!) film score without ever having seen the film. There are absolutely parts worth listening to for their own sake, but it's rare you get a full one that holds your attention throughout.

    Since attending opera live is expensive, I do still listen to it a lot more than I do watch it, and I've come to notice how there are some pretty boring passages even in otherwise great operas by great composers. One of the reasons I like Puccini so much (and in particular the flawed masterpiece that is Turandot) is that he does a good job of "filling" his operas and eliminates most of the dull parts: it suits the way I tend to experience opera.

    On the other hand, I must confess, I have a terrible habit of falling asleep at live performances during some of the more delicate arias (usually death scenes towards the end of the opera). Those are generally parts of the performance where there isn't anything much happening on stage, and the part of my brain that's constantly tired takes over and notices that I'm sitting still in a dark, warm room listening to soothing music.

    Really, Phantom is a musical, rather than an opera, but the distinction is often a fine one. I haven't seen the film; I saw the stage production years ago, though. I tend to find Lloyd-Webber a bit corny, and I have a grudge against Phantom in particular after I realised the main theme was ripped off Echoes. But whatever floats your boat.

    When I hear the old punk rock ballads of my youth that have been imprinted on my mind for decades (such as Sham 69 - If The Kids Are United

    Stiff Little Fingers - Alternative Ulster), then I have an almost instant emotional response of joy or melancholy. But hearing new punk rock just makes me annoyed or bored.

    I know the music is largely the same, the only difference is me which I find worrisome.

    It's the same? I haven't really heard any "new" punk at all, other then pop punk that is trying to be marketed as "real" punk. Could you give some examples?
