Why because it "kills" people? Like BDSM things which involve asphyxiation don't? Or what about vore?

As a cigar smoker, I strongly object that |=(>:c

It depends on how frequently, how much and what the person smokes. Same as other drugs like alcohol, coffee, weed et al.

Water can kill you too when you drink too much of it. Salad can kill you too when you eat too much of it or didn't wash properly.

Nowadays almost everyone treats customer goods binary as in a simplified yes or no, while the truth is always in between and differs per person.
heck, everything can kill you if used improperly, I might not be a fan of smoking, it killed my grandmother after wrecking her health (COPD), but let's not be Kink Shaming others

Smoking is a bad fetish.
Did Defcon use 'fetish' in a metonymic way to make this post mean "Smoking is bad", or is Defcon actually referring to having a paraphilia for smoking people?

I know a guy who has a fetish for women blowing cigarette smoke in people's faces (especially involving Cruella de Ville), so it's possible he could have been referring to a literal fetish.
I have a few things to vent about.

The new girl I trained last month has been getting much better at the job. She can get things done without me being there, so I'm happy to have her on staff. Unfortunately I can't stand working with her. Why?

Because she fucking stinks.

It's just her natural body odor. I first noticed it when I was training her and I would have to walk behind her. Now it's at the point where I can't stand to be in the office with her. It turn the fan on but it isn't powerful enough to fight against her BO. It just encompasses the entire room! Now I have never had a keen sense of smell, but I notice this odor every time I walk by her. My boss noticed it but it doesn't bother him. Thankfully I won't be working with her that much so I'll just deal with it.
So tonight I was talking to the police officer at work and he started telling me about Quik Trip and how much money people make working there (it's actually a decent amount).

I realized two things: a) It's sad that in American society today you make more money working at a gas station than being a police officer. b) I don't want to work jobs like that all my life, but I probably will.

I've been working minimum wage jobs since high school, and I kept thinking one day I'll have a nice stable job that will let me have weekends and holidays off, but these past few years tell me that probably won't happen. Degree or not, most people are working minimum wage jobs because they are easy to get, while a career job is hard.

I realized that I don't just want a job, I want a career. I want to say I do something for a living. But to get a career you have to a) know what you want to do & b) go back to school. I'm going to be 25 years old this year and I have no idea what I want to do with my life. All I know is I don't want to work at a grocery store or a restaurant or some other job where I have to live paycheck to paycheck.

One of my biggest regrets is dropping out of college. I spent 4 years and 2 different colleges working on at least 4 different majors before I gave up. Honestly, it's left me with some irrational fears about school. I just don't know if I can go back no matter how much I want to.

But again: I don't know what I want to do! I don't want to just spin a wheel and pick a career. I can't just pick something without knowing what the job is like. A job description is one thing, but working that job is another.

My current job is fine for now, but I'm getting more and more pressure from my parents to find a better paying job and move out. I don't want to get a job at a grocery store or a gas station because I'm afraid I'll be stuck there forever. But I don't have the conviction to go back to school and any good paying job will require a degree/skills/2+ years of experience.

So now I'm just living with my parents until I get lucky and find a good job or my time runs out and I'm forced to move out.
I really don’t know if I want to live past 30...it just doesn’t seem worth it...you start to get weaker, uglier, more mentally decrepit. (Yeah because my mental state needs to get even worse...) There just seems like no point unless you’re born into wealth or a total masochist. I just hope something happens that either lets me stay young, or that I bite the dust before I start to wither...

Damn... Great to know what you think of people over 30.

That's some fucked up thinking on people and age, dude.

Pretty sure that's just utterly false.
Yeah, that description looks like one for a 50 or 60 years old person, not 30.

At 28, I went to Japan.

At 29, I got a temp job at a place where I am now full-time with nearly a 50% increase in wage between when I started to today.

At 30, I got shoulder surgery to repair a dislocation from when I was 25.

At 31, I went to Japan again.

At 32, I joined a comedy troupe.

At 33, I finally started to get paid to do game shows (albeit not as how I originally drew it up, but money is money)

At 34, it is my intention to go back to Japan.

This is not to say that it was smooth sailing every step of the way, but there's still shit to do.

The shoulder surgery is one I'm afraid I'll need fucked mine up around 15 and have arthritis in it. worry it'll get worse

I hope I never need an extensive surgery like that

closest I've ever came is having a ingrown toenail removed multiple times then killed at the root; and having to get a spinal tap to drain excess spinal fluid

I have to have regular eye specialist doctor appointments to make sure a condition is under control and not damaging my eye nerves further; I've gone often enough that I've realized something... the gear attached to an eye doctor's chair looks like it could be used by a brainwashing villain

Thought the same sort of thing since I was a kid...that could be a fun idea for someone.

Depends on your definition of extensive. Mine (which was not a rotator cuff issue, so everyone can stop saying that it was) probably started around 8-9AM and I got home well before dinner. The issue (aside from a larger bill because surprise, my ball joint was dented) was that the initial trip to the ER when I was 25 kept me out a week; the surgery kept me out for two months.

But it goes back to the whole "body breaking down after 30" thing

Mine was for sure the rotator cuff.
All this talk of surgery reminds me that I need a dermatologist...I’ve got a cyst in my arm, my earlobe and both of my cheeks that I REALLY want gone...
Fucking hell in 4 days my mothers car has lost the front bump and now has headlight held on with bungie cords and now the hood is wrapped and the windshield is cracked to fuck.

And she has no choice but to drive cause there's not a single goddamn fucking other person around that owns a car and is actually willing to help despite all the shit she does for all of them

how the heck did it lose that much in 4 days? that sounds like it was in an accident or had some A-hole vandalize it

She clipped someone and the front bumper fell off, the hood wouldn't latch right. And while she was out there was some super powerful wind that caught the hood just the right way
Ok universe, I get it. You fucking hate me and want to torture me until I’m a lifeless soulless husk. You couldn’t make it more obvious if you tried.
So I finally realize why my brother always has so much laundry to do. It's because he's secretly a massive germaphobe.

My parents and I each pick a day to wash our clothes, sometimes two if we need more time. My brother will take the remaining days during the week to wash his clothes. Doesn't matter how big or small the load is. For years I was trying to figure out why he always had so much laundry. Now I realize it's because he can't stand to have his clothes dirty for any reason. Especially all his damn hockey gear.

And every time he wants to do laundry after my parents or I he always sends the washing machine through a cleaning cycle because he can't stand to have our germs infecting his clothes. He even uses special vegan detergent that he gets from Whole Foods.

It's honestly very infuriating. Not only because it's a complete waste of water and electricity to use the machine every day, but because he always hogs the machine when I need it. Since I usually work weekends I try to wash my clothes early in the week. But guess who else wants to wash his clothes at that time? He changes my loads and sets the machine on a cleaning cycle even though I have more loads to wash.

Plus he doesn't take the time to make sure it gets done. He starts a load, leaves for most of the day, and then comes back at night and continues, so his wet clothes are sitting in the machine all day.

I can't wait until I get my own place.

Vegan detergent?

It's got "all natural ingredients" or some shit. All I know is it's the only detergent he will use.
He can't be much of a germaphobe if a) he plays a contact sport and b) he lets his laundry mold in the washer (though, that's less of an issue he does cold wash).

I'm sure it's related to the Glutton Free Beef

Good points. But my theory is the only thing that makes sense to me. I won't get a straight answer out of him if I ask.
I don't know. All I know is it's a nightmare trying to do laundry in my house because of him.
