You seemed a bit depressed at home, sick and bored most of the time tbf, so it can't  be much worse...just different, with some benefits.
Like not being worried about getting prompt medical attention if you need it, that's bound to be a load off for a start.

I'd also get someone round to the house soon, to clear out the fridge and do a post-ambulance tidy up. Last thing you need to be reminded of when you get back, is the shit you went through when you left.
(If it was me, and I could afford it , I'd get some pro's in to clean, tidy and redecorate my place...every cloud  man. )  :wink:

Anyone ever tried to make an OP on reddit?

You get BotFucked at every turn.
Here's an example.
---
Is ammunition control, as opposed to gun control, really such a stupid idea that 'it shouldn't be said out loud'?

I'm not the first to consider this by a long shot (no pun intended and Los Angeles is already trialling a form of it), but I was told in here that I shouldn't voice this opinion out loud (as per title)..but I don't like bowing to unreasonable demands.

It seems to me (I'm Scottish btw) that the 2nd amendment makes no direct reference to the bearing of ammunition, just Arms (at the time, swords, pikes, muskets, cannon etc.), but if you control the sale and means of production of ammunition, you may avoid the worst of the daily mass shootings visited upon your country.

I fully expect to be downvoted into oblivion here.

The response:

It looks like you've posted a thought about or related to Reddit. As such, your submission has been removed.

Baffled, I removed the words in and here for the same result and tried this:

What if: ammunition control, as opposed to gun control, wasn't really such a stupid idea that 'it shouldn't be said out loud'?

And got this:
It looks like you've posted a premise or a question. As such, your submission has been removed.

It's almost impossible get through their Bots and make an honest comment. (probably because China owns half of it now)

My experience of Crappit has been very similar. It's one big clique full of one-upmanship and little Hitlers, not to mention the overbearing bots that you referred to.
I've tried to post several times, but apparently I haven't got enough Karma points or some other such bullshit, but in order to get those reps (?) you need to post.
I really can't be arsed with all that Stalinesque crap.

Got a new coat today. I was having doubts whether it was a winter coat because it didn’t feel like it could keep me warm during the cold period

Glad I was wrong. £40 well spent

Not bad mate.
I've seen me spending double that on a Berghaus, The North Face or Patagonia fleece (started buying Trespass, can get two for £40.)
