Copy paste is still more effort than many would have put, and hard of hearing, scrolling somewhere they can't use audio, or slow connection/limited data, it was kind of you to do. I appreciate it as I'm often unable to watch videos as I tend to be in public or at work without headphones much while on here.

Relationship goals 9 comments
guest_ · 11 hours ago
Two people looking into each other's eyes isn't true love, two people looking in the same direction is. If you don't want the same things and can't agree on what you're willing sacrifice to get there it can't work. Turn that bottom penguin the other way son. She did you a favor. You're on the way up and need a partner who will suppprt you through the tough times to be there and reap the good times. Wish her the best in finding what she's after in life and you go do you. Succeed for you and find someone who sees the value in someone with goals. She wants someone there all the time and you can't be that person. No hard feelings, keep going.

Not my way but I can't judge others if it works for them. I'm sure the money makes it harder to walk away for most, and for some they're ina relationship just for money or looks etc so that's all they need and the rest is a sham. But plenty of women stay with broke dudes who cheat. Plenty of people stay with partners that aren't from an outside perspective any more desirable or attractive than another person they could meet despite being treated poorly. I'd like to say I'd know my self worth and leave, but I've never been cheated on (though I have stayed in unhealthy relationships longer than I should have and knew it- because I loved them even if they didn't do right by me.)

Invest in yourself. However works for you. Success is guaranteed by a degree and failure isn't guaranteed by not having one. A degree can open doors but in the end it's always about what a person is capable of, what they are worth. Don't bet on being the next Elon Musk, as he says the people who work for him do have degrees. So train, learn, that doesn't always mean a degree. Get experience and meet people. Do what you love. We make goals and travel towards them, then we get there and move on to the next goal. The time to reach those goals can be a long journey. You need to make sure you can enjoy that journey because it's that space in between where you'll be living most of your life. Don't let some dip shit devalue you because you didn't get a piece of paper, amd don't base 4 years of your life a paper, base it on what you learned.

Trades are good work. My advice is try for something in demand, preferably a job you can't learn on your own easily like diesel or threaded vehicle where the stakes of hiring a fuckwit make it unwise to grab just anyone who says they can do the job. It helps build value. Now that tech companies are trying to make things like self driving cars disciplines that cross over can get you jobs with companies you wouldn't peg as hiring tradesmen like Google, apple, Amazon, etc. Most of the serious tradesmen I know have gone on to make very good salaries at jobs that most wouldn't think we're in their career paths. Their secret was to take on knowledge and training others didn't have or want, to stay on what was upcoming as a trend, and to keep training. Several went and took classes while working in things like electrical engineering or business and management so they could cross over to higher positions. Best of luck reaper.

that's pretty much life. You try for something and risk failing, potentially looking like a fool. It all comes down to risk vs reward, and how good you are at dealing with failure. Trump has failed a million times in life. He's hated, mocked. The world waits for him to do anything they can criticize. But he's still president and I'm not. He still eats fine food and travels and lives in luxury. He knows how to fail at the dunk 20 times in a row and be made team captain for it. A big part of life is how we manage risk and deal with failure.

Teachers often do a poor job of teaching students how to think and instead try to teach them what to think. That said though school is more about being exposed to different things and decide what interests you. It allows you to meet a wide range of people and develop social skills, and it teaches you the basic rules on which the world tends to run and how to exist in "the system." It also distinguishes the truly exceptional and not just those who are "special." Those who can best use or manipulate the system to their advantage, and those so truly gifted they can excel despite going "against the grain." For those in the middle though, who mostly follow orders or mostly tend to mediocrity it shapes useful pieces for the board. Not every one can or will be an astronaut or inventor. The world as is needs janitors, Office drones etc. in every army there are soldiers and officers and generals. Some are born with advantageous traits and some make themselves more, some march in line.

Trump's sexist?? wahh?? 19 comments
guest_ · 1 day ago
They want to Ben treated and respected as equal to men. They feel the current administration, its attitudes and policies don't reflect a positive direction for women in America and want to change that. Issues such as the defunding of planned parenthood and removal of free birth control are some big items on the march- taking away the ability not of some of the most vulnerable women and women a time the lowest economic and social wrungs to access it. They are against the largely pro life stance versus pro choice the administration has taken in dictating a woman's rights over her pregnancy and choices. They don't see how "grab em by the pussy" and numerous sexual misconduct and harassment charges translate into a leader who respects women. In a nut shell.

Some people will never be happy. Some women are themselves deeply sexist or want "revenge" against men. But maybe the key is understanding what a "token" is. A token is someone you hired to fill a quota. They aren't there because you respect them, because they are equal. A token is meant to point to and say "look, I hired the most women in history to high ranking positions... even if I hired the least of the last 5 presidents to my "inner circle." Women, minorities, they by and large don't want to be given jobs or positions or concessions because "it's due" or "they're underrepresented." They want to be given positions of power because they were qualified and able, and they weren't simply overlooked or turned down because of a bias against them. It's a nuanced difference but it's the difference between someome asking you out because they think you're interesting and valuable, or because they pitied you and figured they'd throw you a bone. Most no one wants to be a token.

Trump has appointed many diverse women to high level positions. He hasn't gotten much credit for that. I'll try to avoid certain arguments- but even if his entire staff were female many women (enough to march) feel this administration doesn't represent them or their values. It's a shock, but having the same genitals doesn't mean someone has your best interests at heart. To go further the marches are about more than giving some women positions of power, the positions are meant to come as a sign we are all seen equal and have equivalent opportunities. With "metoo" and all the scrutiny on Hollywood and powerful men, with big shots like Hary being sent up the river for their sexual misconduct, we have powerful politicians including the standing president with a list of accused and proved statements and deeds which many feel show they fundamentally do not respect women as equals. This statement disregards what the issues even are and shows ignorance. Kudos for the diverse hires.

I believe I get the point this is trying to make, but if you spend 5 seconds thinking about it this is either nonsensical or goes against its own point.

It's a fun idea to play with either way, and makes a good story (the real backbone in most conspiracy theories) instead of saying anything else though I'll just provide this link to those interested in why it's highly unlikely:

This is what cigarettes smoke did to this chair, placed in two different rooms 9 comments
guest_ · 2 days ago
There are many missing variables. I doubt this was a scientific study though as the background appears to be a home. My guess is that one chair was in an area like a garage or parlor where smoking was allowed and one was in a room it wasn't. Due to not knowing the differences in conditions between the chairs (like exposure to UV as sun light and elements) and length of exposure speculation would be dubious at best. What is an observable and known fact though is that exposure to cigarette smoke does effect most common items and materials, paint, wall paper, walls, most upholstery and fabric, and plastics are degraded and dirtied by smoke exposure. This is true of any smoke not just cigarettes, however cigarette smoke has unique properties and in enclosed spaces also deposites tar, nicotine, and other residue. You can see glass which is exposed to frequent cigarette smoke takes on a sort of "rainbow" haze like an oil slick. All smoke is detrimental to health and damages man items as fact

I deleted my previous comment as between writing and posting @moon posted a more succinct and helpful reply on the subject. In a nut shell yes. He's accused of being persistently sexually aggressive and disrespecting her wishes, on his part he hasn't really denied it and says she texted him her feelings after it happened and he was shocked and regretful, and texted back an apology.

They said bees would go extinct too. The marvelous thing about humanity- the thing that gives us computers and space travel and higher math? We solve problems: we also are very good at adapting, so if chocolate does go extinct, we will find a way. As for wars- we haven't really been at a shortage of those for... all of known history. Hell, they found a caveman that was killed by tools. As far as the majority goes, for most of history the majority hasn't done very well. We tend to do well compared to periods before or after our time, or well compared to each other, but not compared to those at the top. Most of human civilization has a few requiring many to do worse so they can have more. Pretty much all of it. So the "majority" may be smaller- but when we say someone has it rough we are comparing it to our frame of reference, the majority in the depression were worse off than those of the late 1800s and better off than those of of the 1700s. It's relative.

I could write pages here about this subtext in this post but... Yes, there's context to anything, but his words make a clear picture. He "was friend zoned" for 2 years." She put him- he feels wrong. He "summoned his courage" he's trying to make up for beong made to feel that way, supported by his use of "not interested" as opposed to a more gentle way to rebuffband console a friend going through a breakup on the rebound. Supported by friendzone. We know he still liked her because if he didn't they would just be friends, she wouldn't be "keeping him in the friend zon" he would say they were friends. So he likes her still, is bitter over being turned down 2 years ago but too timid to ask for what he wants or leave, when she's at her weakest he finally sees a chance to feel big- and since he still likes her he played himself either way because after 2 years of hanging out waiting for a chance he got it and blew it so he could get back at her in his mind. He played himself.
