    If you like to throw down a fresh shucked oyster, you are losing out. Try
    steaming it or frying it and enjoy the chewing.

    Actually, if I don't get a job in the near future; I may become a real life
    troll and live under a bridge and make people give me money to pass. Or
    some shrubbery. Or a pint of Beck's.

    LOL. I picture two teenage girls on a bus where an argument breaks
    out between two guys and one of them begins to repeatedly stab the
    other all over his chest, back, and face, as one girl says, "Ewww, how
    rude", and her friend adds, "Ewww, this is like, so boring."

    Maybe really stupid creatures saddled with the annoying will to
    live (nothing wants to die) - maybe they're so simple-brained that
    although they know fear they're not quite able to feel real pain. So
    maybe getting eaten provides just enough stimulus to make them feel
    something, almost like a numbed-out dead human in the ground getting a
    massage from an earthquake or an atomic blast. It might actually be a
    kick for the oyster to get gobbled and appreciated. Who knows?

    I didn't call the guy a troll and in don't like using that term
    period, even for those who might fit the description. I do not
    consider Somebody a troll. I never said anything negative about his
    being here. It's open house. I merely said that I know from prior
    behavior not to respond to all his questions because he's got one
    right behind it to take it's place. Your answers go unheard. I won't
    argue it. I'm a pretty good judge of behavior. If you have not yet
    seen this in Somebody, perhaps in time you will. If you have seen it
    already and are unfazed by it, then more power to you. But please
    don't accuse me of calling anyone a troll or telling anyone where to
    go or what to do, because I'm not that sort of person.

    My experience with eating raw oysters was a disappointment. I
    was a teenager. A friend took me to the oyster bar. "You eat 'em
    raw", he said, "it's like really primitive." I was intrigued, excited
    even. I had never seen an oyster. When I tore one out of it's shell,
    all I can remember yelling was, 'Where is it's face, where is it's
    face?" I like to see the facial expressions of the living thing I'm
    devouring. What a disappointment.

    I've heard you talk about the things you own. Not expensive
    things, but things. Like your computer. You have things to sell.
    Between the process of being employed and becoming homeless lies the
    land of the pawnbroker. Get out there and sell your computer. Stave
    off the underpass.

    It's the only puter in the house. I have no smartphone or ipod or any of
    that. And the computer is about 5 years old. And it was low end when I
    bought it (cheap emachine I added memory to)... I live on a low budget, but
    without income-- I suspect that will be a problem in the long run.

    I have a 94 year Mazda I never drive worth less than $1,000. There is the
    house, but that was for her and doesn't have much equity. I'd move, but
    where? All the good underpasses are already taken... I do have about 300
    CDs, but no one buys CDs anymore. I don't even know why I keep them. And
    my 35 or so DVDs are only movies I'd watch again and don't want to sell.

    The gas and electric company picked up my extra fridge. They are paying $30
    for old ones... That almost covers one trip to the grocery store.

    Unemployed is the new employed.

    Sounds good to me. I'll keep eating them. For their sake.

    I liked the last episode. He seems to try and end things on a positive note
    after a series of weird adventures. Didn't expect to see Parker Posey
    again, nor how that went. And then he ends up eating in China with a
    roomful of people. His sister was wrong, he didn't end up all alone.

    They need to censor themselves in private. Nobody wants to see that done in
    public. It can scar kids for life.

    They don't want to die, they just don't want to live. Many times
    they felt the desire to stop living, yet they did not kill
    themselves. Why? Because the annoying will to live would not allow
    it. They had to fight the urge to live a long time before making the
    final call. Sure, some might take the plunge first time out, but I
    think it's safe to say that most who kill themselves because they
    "want to die" do not do it the first time they get the urge. They
    have to work up to it. All living things are saddled with the same
    annoying need to stay alive, to breathe, to eat, the exist. That's
    what I like - existing. I love being alive but I hate the chores of
    life - brushing of teeth, combing of hair, showering of body, running
    errands, the whole shebang. I like existing. If asked what I'd like
    to be when I come back, I think a sponge would be nice. But not one
    in the ocean that is vulnerable to predators and other dangers. No, I
    want to be a sponge in a regularly cleaned and properly managed
    aquarium owned by a rich guy who likes to show it off to friends and
    visitors to his lavish big city apartment house. I want to be a
    sponge. If that's not possible, a tree will do.

    Dude, I've lived lower on the pole than anyone I've ever met and
    I've done it most of my life. Someone gave me this computer 15 years
    ago. I'm saying you still own things and you're still alive and
    eating, so right now maybe being unemployed is a blessing - surely
    being able to bitch about it is a luxury - and maybe you should start
    looking at it that way instead of falsely griping about not being
    employed. If one is not employed and able to live, they're wealthier
    than most. And above all, no matter how much money a person makes, if
    they have to work they are not rich, not ever.

    I get the same feeling about a human in the dead zone. There he
    is all numbed out, feeling nothing - or so it seems. Perhaps there is
    just enough awareness to sense things - not feel pain but just sort of
    sense things, an awareness of sorts. In that case when I die I would
    like to be tossed into a lion's pit and chewed to pieces. It would be
    like a pleasant massage. You see, when a thing is dead, what it wants
    more than anything is movement. It wants to move. The dead things
    beneath the earth silently wish for an earthquake or atomic blast to
    rock them from their mummified state.

    I know, I've been there
