    Welfare

    Most people who see me use my EBT card in the grocery store probably think I'm scamming. I look young and healthy, like I could totally handle a job. What they don't know is that my condition can go from fine to a complete nightmare almost instantly. Today might be a good day for me, where I only have 2-3 attacks, and that's why I chose to go to the store. I would love to still be working. I miss it and if I could get my neuro disorders under control I would gladly take just about any job I was capable of performing. I have a neighbor who is trying to teach me how to design websites. Slow going because I'm definitely not very computer savvy. Hopefully, after I learn enough, I will be able to get back to supporting myself. Until then, sorry if the fact that I don't appear to be needy enough causes anyone distress.

    If "killing him with kindness" doesn't work, stepping outside with a camera might do the trick. If he thinks you are serious enough to compile evidence maybe he will take the hint.

    Veri, nice to see you back! Now that I know more I know that I don't know much You know what I mean?
  8. I think that Qryos might have meant misogynist instead of misanthrope. Also, I remember that thread you are talking about To'na and Hyper was expressing what he thought "God" wanted not what Hyper felt was right or good.

    Agi And Personhood

    1) Makes sense to me. I will start using that term tyvm. 2) I don't believe in souls either so... 3) If these intelligent machines were advanced enough to be considered "members of society" with citizenship, rights and responsibilities then yeah I don't see why marriage should be out of the question. The mind uploading is a very interesting concept to me. Would it function like a clone (a separate but exact copy) or would there be a movement of consciousness from the meat brain to the hardware involved?
