What do I get out of it?

Mostly chuckles, but every so often a good belly laugh.

In addition -- tho I don't know why I feel compelled to reveal this here -- I do try to work from home, mostly programming, but I have an auto-immune illness that is making this difficult, with generalized pain and anxiety, mental disorientation, and other symptoms. Perhaps I come here to stew in old habits the way wiser patients would take a warm bath.

There is also something promising here, comforting here, whether or not in fact it is realized. What do you get out of OC.net? (The question is not just for Orthornorm. The question is probably rhetorical.)
Doubt.  ::)

Years ago, a very, very tall deer tried to run me off the road. How rude! I let him go, though.

Each Saturday night nominate three words as your possible WORD OF THE WEEK to be used during the seven days which follow. Write each word down on a slip of paper, drop the papers in a hat, and then pull one out at random. This is your WORD OF THE WEEK. Pepper the word throughout all your conversations--banter with coworkers, request for a vacation day, explaining to your spouse why the disgusting mess you left in the kitchen is not really your fault after all. The possibilities are endless. You have to choose your word nominees wisely, however. Three words recommended for WORD OF THE WEEK newbies, who are unused to the rigors of the process and need to be eased into it, are: ruffian, keister, and poppycock. Time and culture has proven the value of these classic words.

This week, my word is actually three words: Most Holy Theotokos.

It's perfectly normal for more advanced students of wordsmithing and wordhandling such as us to use several words or a slightly longer phrase. As for myself, I am eager to continue working into conversations my own WORD OF THE WEEK this week, 'tootsie pop explosion.'

"Abba! Give me a word so that I might be saved!" the monk pleaded.

"Pray every day the words, 'Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on me a sinner,'" Abba Hezekiah replied.

"Oh. That's kinda long, and sounds like a lot of work. I did specifically ask for just a word, which is to say one word..." the monk complained.

Abba Hezekiah just glared at the monk in annoyance.

With that kind of mentality you won't.

Get your MA and enroll in a traineeship, preferably something in management. Wages will suck in the beginning but you'll be able to get a better job with the training and experience, even outside of management. Many traineeships only require a master's degree.  If you're in a fraternity or another such group volunteer for functions such as treasurer. It will look good on your CV. Perhaps get a job in retail.

Pimp your CV.

To my knowledge, Justin Kissel is not trying to kill everyone.  Maybe a select few individuals, but not everyone.  :P

Come now, I wouldn't kill everyone. Admittedly I have thought about it, but in the end I decided to embrace the wisdom in that old saying of St. Augustine: "Kill a person and you're a murderer, kill many people and you're a conquerer, kill everyone and you'll end up like one of those guys on The Twilight Zone where you think you got exactly what you wanted but it turns out to be your worst nightmare."

said to myself--grab it!
but it was too late so
I watched as it fell in
slow motion to the floor
spilling the rich, sweet
diet orange goodness
all over my rug and
on my couch
which sucked

Have you tried soaking them in an anti-itch cleanse? Try a mixture of 2 quarts water, 2 quarts vinegar, and 2 quarts bleach. Stir counter-clockwise for 33-36 seconds and then be sure to stick both feet in before the liquid stops moving. Repeat several times, or more if necessary. Wear socks if you have sensitive skin.

You sound like a professional who knows what he's talking about.  That's because you are.
