I think Gus and Shiels should do their sex thread though all the same. Creepy or not. Let's have a look at it.

the real leaderboard. I’m up for it
Get it started. Give it a snappy title like let's talk about sex with Shiels and Gus.

Remind me what the exact angle is though? It's about the currency of sexual attractiveness right? Not the act of poking it in

That's a perfect thread title. @shiels will you start it off? I take enough board heat for this sorta stuff, so I would prefer to be co-captain instead of top dog

We don't have to stay narrow like Luka advises, about sexual capital, we can go broad, a Q&A format, anything sex-related goes, like a regular advice column

I call dibs on either Charlotte (the prettiest) or Miranda (the smartest) but will settle for Carrie (the snarkiest? the writer?)

I've only seen about 12 eps so forgive me if these are not their personas

Since I got off it I've been crying a lot, often aboutquite innocuous things - songs I love but also corny sentimental moments in e.g. Marvel movies.

I welcomed this as being a sign I was reconnecting with emotions. But now I'm starting to wonder
I remember my friend saying "I knew I'd been doing too many drugs and put myself into a vulnerable state when I started crying in the cinema" - and I thought hmmm, that's not necessarily true "What film was it?" and he said "Oh, it wasn't the film, beforehand there was an advert with this guy buying a Vokswagen cos it's the safest car and it would protect his family".

No it does help. Thanks all.

I've had two full on sobbing fits in my parents company lately and both times I felt somehow soothed in the aftermath.
I'm not necessarily good at this kind of thing but I would like you to know that I am right now reaching out, patting you manfully on the shoulder and then thinking... no fuck it, let's go in for a proper hug. I would genuinely like to cheer you up right now if I could.

I do mean that, I think dissensus is a community and although we have arguments and all that we are something together. That goes hand in hand with what I was saying the other day about how if anyone comes to Lisbon I will make what effort I can to help them enjoy their stay - whether that be my meeting them for a beer or for food.... or just telling 'em where Lux is and promising to stay out of their way.

Thing is, dissensus has given me a lot and I feel that I ought to give back if I can... and as I can't give anything to the abstract entity that is Dissensus, the next best thing is to help out the people that comprise it if/when the opportunity arises.

And so, I do wish I could cheer you up @Corpsey, it's not my strong point to be honest, even if we were right next to each other instead of miles apart and in different countries I would probably just sort of shuffle around awkwardly saying "It will be alright" and offer you a beer. All I can do is let it be known that there ARE people who care about you and I am one of them.

Shes right is what im saying
Interesting that the change she sees and disapproves is from "crying is bad" to "crying is totally ok" - she doesn't even consider the possibility that there might be someone out there who thinks "crying is good".

This is a totally unrelated aside, but it popped into my head cos of thinking about that guy, @Mr. Tea do you remember some incident where he shagged this girl and it turned out she had escaped from a mental hospital after being sectioned? I'd totally forgotten this but the other day I suddenly a) remembered that it had happened and b) got really frustrated cos I couldn't recall any of the details properly.

Am I right in saying that she got his contact details and, after she'd been dragged back off to her confinement, she tried to blackmail him into becoming embroiled in some kind of daring escape attempt?

Is this possible? How can I have forgotten that? Or have I lost my mind and dreamt up a totally insane fairy tale that never existed outside my own twisted imagination?

Thanks @IdleRich!

This latest variety of depression (around ageing and mortality) I suppose can only be "dealt with" in a couple of ways: 1) distract yourself constantly so you never stop to think about it 2) hope that you get bored of thinking about it and it fades away (as I believe has happened to me in the past) 3) "work out" philosophically how you can feel better about it (e.g. that william james quote).

I realise that you can look at this stuff from different perspectives (the glass half full/half empty thing) – instead of thinking "time is limited and running out, so what's the point" you can think "i'm here now and i still have time, so let's make it count". And until recently I was quite comfortable occupying that second position.
