What's your opinion about thrift shops? : 1. Do you like going thrift shopping? 2. What kind of clothes do you look for/ is it anything specific?

I like them, you can find some proper gems sometimes! I went to a massive one near me a few months and got the best biker jacket from the 80's and I love it. I never go with anything very specific in mind, it's more a case of if something calls to me, it's usually converse/jackets or alternative brands. I also love apps like depop, I've found some right vintage bargains on there!

Do you like your first name ? Why or why not ?

funny_hot’s Profile PhotoMegan
yes I like my name because
Lucy is an English feminine given name derived from the Latin masculine given name Lucius with the meaning as of light (born at dawn or daylight, maybe also shiny, or of light complexion). Alternative spellings are Luci, Luce, Lucie, Lucia, and Luzia. Lucy. Saint Lucy, by Francesco del
Lucy is Christian Girl name and meaning of this name is "Bringer of Light, Light".

Have you found alternative ways to warm yourself for the coming winter?

I'm cold always so I get mega cold in winter. I'll hug my hot water bottle almost constantly, use blankets, jumpers, hot drinks, even just to warm your hands. I'll use compression gloves (fingerless ones) all the time in the house if my wrists are icey. And lots of layers to keep warm :)

It's a serious question. I want raise in my monthly income. How should I ask.

fahadmushtaq5’s Profile Photoندامتِ گمان
Now this is the question of the year so far in my personal opinion that a lot of people should ask but no one actually does.
Asking for a raise. its a tricky thing my man.
It needs a very well scripted letter from you to you HOD or boss or CEO or CFO or director of the company. You will be writing that letter to gain your desired purposes but... You have to write the letter in a way that you are telling the addressee that how beneficial you are for the company/organization/institution/Dept. And how much have you added to company's worth in last quarter, last two quarters, and last one year.
You should not start the letter with your desires and demands you know.
1:- a brief history of your tenure in dept/institution with your promotion's timeline if there are any.
2:- your current roll/position in the Dept/institution.
3:- list your accomplishments throughout your time in Dept/institution.
4:- list what you have learnt on board and how can you use it to add to the net worth of the institution in future by obtaining a better position.
5:- writing the letter you should be very careful about few things, do not repeat things. do not write lengthy paragraphs. do not use flattery. Do not use pride and arrogance. do not use the word "I" too much. Do not repeat key words, instead use healthy and cool and positive alternative words.
6:- write your aim (future plans, goals) within the Dept/institution and how much are you thriving to achieve them and a tentative timeline of succession of your goals if given opportunity.
7:- provide your promotion and salary raise request in an honourable and legit way. You can also mention if there is anything you are facing as a financial crisis or you think you are going to face that in future that might effect your performance e.g. need a bigger house, children education expenses, health coverage, vehicle upgrade etc.
Before writing it finally I recommend going through some online proofs of letters written in the same regard.

What kind of genre of music do you listen to?

LunaDelARose’s Profile Photoluna
My music collection is quite eclectic.
In fact, in my music library… I have everything recorded from 1943 to the present day.
Everything from classical alternative top 40 and some other Rip securities.
I'm also quite an accomplished musician as Wellers skilled in audio and music production.
So music to me, is the language of the universe.

Bin froh das ich im Moment kein neues Auto brauche. Irgendwie stecken wir gerade in so einem Technologiewandel, aber ich bin mir nicht sicher wohin die Entwicklung wirklich letztendlich gehen wird. Ich hatte aber mal mit einem Fiat 500 als Elektroauto geliebäugelt, aber ich glaube ich würde im Moment echt nur ein Auto leasen und flexibel zu bleiben.
Als unvernünftige Autos schwärme ich nach wie vor für einen Jeep oder ein altes Cabrio, aber realisieren würde ich das auf keinen Fall.

Es soll auf jeden Fall ein Benziner mit Schaltung sein. Also kein Automatik, E-Auto, Hybrid oder sonstiges. Will meinen Fahrspass weiterhin in vollen Zügen genießen :)
Wenn ich die freie Wahl hätte würde ich ein Mittelklasseauto aus dem Preissegment 40.000 bis 60.000 Euro wählen. Wahrscheinlich würde es entweder ein top ausgestatteter Mercedes CLA, ein Audi A5 oder ein Skoda Octavia RS werden.

My formula of healthy routine every day is exercising in the morning, drinking a lot of water during the day, maybe one more exercise in the evening, 1 hour walk and not forgetting to eat 3 times a day.
But I know it’s nothing new 😅
Your tip is very interesting! I didn’t know that dried grapes have all these things in them 🤯
I usually love to add them to my cereal, but I can’t eat them without anything because it’s too sweet for me, darker grapes in particular.

Sto scoprendo ultimamente che tutti i nostri problemi hanno un volto e una voce di donna. Un bel po' cafoni, per carità... però di cafonaggine ne vedo dappertutto e di tutti i tipi, ormai. E pienamente normalizzata. Quindi la scoperta mi lascia interdetto.
Mi pare che alla mia generazione e ai più grandi di quella successiva (quelli piccini sono, appunto, troppo piccini) manchino le capacità di analisi necessarie per lamentarsi di gente come la venditrice di cocomeri in questione, senza apparire ridicola a sua volta.
Basta vedere le alternative messe in campo. Cantanti, ignoranti strapagati di ogni risma, folle depensanti quando proprio si ha voglia di rimboccarsi le maniche. Più che altro eserciti di meme scarsi.
Siamo spacciati. Altro che Meloni che fanno il pieno di voti, zucche vuote ovunque.

Le curiosità di Stan. Un pizzaiolo ha esposto fuori dal suo locale la bolletta della luce e ha scritto. Sono costretto a mettere una Margherita 10€ o così ho devo chiudere il locale. La compreresti lo stesso o cercheresti altro?

dogtheblog’s Profile PhotoUn cane di nome Stan
ci rinuncerei a malincuore, non posso tollerare il fatto di dover pagare una pizza 10,00 solo perche è in atto una colossale campagna di speculazione sull'energia innescata dall' incompetenza dei vertici dell'unione europea. Questi signori che ci rappresentano in pratica hanno detto ai produttori di combustibili fossili che a breve non compreremo piu i loro prodotti perche rovinano il pianeta, fin qui tutto ok, la salute del pianeta è la cosa piu importante, però prima di fare certe affermazioni devi gia avere pronte le alternative (fonti pulite e rinnovabili) altrimenti è logico che i produttori di gas e petrolio, sapendo di essere vicini alla fine del loro enorme business, alzino i prezzi in maniera sconsiderata. Tutto chiaro? :)

Consiglio del giorno: Ho una situazione di amore non corrisposto che ho scoperto soltanto ieri, pensavo fosse interessato anche lui e invece no.. Ma essendo amici non vuole assolutamente perdere la mia amicizia perché dice che a me ci tiene tantissimo. Consigli per stare meglio?

Interrompere l'amicizia... Non vedo alternative e trovo egoista da parte sua che ti chieda di non *andartene*.
Ovviamente è solo il mio pensiero...

Das kam bei uns öfter vor, jetzt haben wir einen Repeater für die Steckdose. Seitdem ist es wesentlich stabiler, aber trotzdem nicht perfekt. Da hilft eigentlich immer nur etwas Geduld oder zur Not muss die FRITZ!Box auch mal neu gestartet werden. Irgendwann ist es dann meistens wieder da.
Bei längerfristigen Störungen habe ich mich an unseren Provider gewendet 😅
Die Zeit ohne Internet nutze ich dann einfach anders. Lesen oder ich unterhalte mich mit meiner Tochter. Putzen ist auch ne tolle Alternative 😁

Do you hope for peace?

Depends what peace or freedom means. Does freedom mean the ability to do whatever to whomever without consequence? Does peace mean that there would be nothing wrong with the world, but you aren't allowed to do what you chose without permission? If that is the detailed choices I would chose peace. If not explain in more details and I'll update my answer.
Freedom. I went to a Catholic School and a teacher told me that "There is no such thing as negative emotions in heaven, pain suffering, hunger has all vanished." Well Naturally that got me thinking, (not religious btw but I like to be philosophical once in a while) Well does that mean humans are incapable of creating suffering for one another? Because then that means that people in heaven wouldn't be who they are on earth, they would be in some sort of alternative state of being rather than our current one where we can experience a whole spectrum of emotions rather than the ones that are positive. This could just be translated as a world at peace as well. Two people can have very different ideas as to what peace would be, no disagreements would require everyone to believe and think in the same way. Even in a high school in order to have peace you would have to understand how everyone is working and understand their intentions. Peace would only be attainable if everyone lived as part of a docile hivemind of no straying of opinion like it's 1984, The WBC or Aldous Huxley's a brave new world. Freedom on the other hand is experiencing the world around you in the purest sense. You will be angry out raged and heartbroken. People will kill. People will steal and burn and rape but a the end of the day you have a choice you can say no. You can decide that this is wrong because it hurts other people and rather than not experience suffering at all you can learn from it. Generations of starvation taught our ancestors to raise their own crops and it was thousands of people dying of infections and disease which taught us to clean our knives before putting them in people. Hardship caused by the choices of others made us evolve and adapt. With peace there is no progress. Freedom is reality. the only way to live. There's nothing wrong with the idea of peace. Hell, most religions even believe that peace is only achievable after great destruction. The things that would have to happen in order to get peace make peace less worthy of having. "Equilibrium" is one of my favorite movies. They have "peace" but are not allowed to feel emotion. So they are slaves. I hope one day we will be able to live all together in peace.

I like alternative styles but when I'm out with the horses and stuff I'm in leggings and a t-shirt 🤷🏻‍♀️ Most of the stuff I like I don't have the confidence to wear so I go for a toned down version haha

Is "diet coke" basically a sugar free coke? I don't know how people can drink that crap tbh its basically a regular coke thats been left open in the sun for too long. It tastes funny. Just drink a good old vintage regular coke or drink water. Yucky in addition to unhealthy.

Hai mai provato a scrivere un libro? Se sì, di che genere? Trama a grandissime linee?

Provato sì, ma ho sempre lasciato perdere, preferisco le poesie. Le storie originali non fanno per me, e ad oggi preferisco ancora le fanfiction (in particolare le Alternative Universe, dove si apportano cambiamenti di una certa entità al mondo di partenza, e le What If, dove si parte da un'interrogativo per ribaltare la realtà dei fatti o proseguire la storia originale), di cui ad ora ho una nutrita produzione (al punto che ad ora sto scrivendo con molta lentezza, in attesa di pubblicarle, ben sei long su vari fandom, più altre in fase di progettazione).

Jesteś romantyczny/ romantyczna? 😊😊

Myślę, że trochę tak, zarówno jeśli chodzi o pojęcie bycia romantyczną jako miłości i romantyczną jako z epoki romantyzmu.
Jestem trochę przerażająca w sumie, podoba mi się blada twarz i wygląd jak u wampira, interesuję się stylem goth, punk, alternative, ale w środku jestem tak naprawdę bardzo wrażliwa i płaczę przy romantycznej muzyce, wspominając swojego Przyjaciela i chwile z Nim spędzone.

I don’t feel confident enough for a relationship.

I (20sF) have never had what you could call a real relationship. I just went along with my life thinking it would happen when it did, and that I would pursue it when the time was right. Except it never happened. I was never asked out in high school, got limited attention in college, and now I’m out of college and still have nothing to show for it. I had a birthday recently and suddenly got very insecure about my lack of experience in this area. I’ve always wanted to get married and have a family, and I see my friends around me in 2 year, 5 year, even 8 year long relationships and I’m saddened wondering why I was never able to have that. I’ve been feeling very low about this for days.
I decided something needed to be done, but what I discovered is that every time I push myself to look, my insecurities and doubts take over, and I end up sabotaging myself before I can even begin. I join apps and I delete them. I can’t even picture where I’d go to meet guys my age who are single. I’ve asked my friends and they have no options for me. I just can’t stop thinking about everything that could go wrong and how long it can take for a relationship to grow into what I’m hoping for. And above all else, it’s been so long since I’ve gotten that kind of attention, I can’t fathom anybody liking me like that. I’m so lost. I know I cannot rely on a relationship to make me happy, and I’ve already decided that if it doesn’t happen in the long run, I would seek alternative options for motherhood, but I want the love and hard work it takes to build a life from the ground up with someone I trust and love more than anything. I’m just so lonely. Have at least one hobby that doesn't involve people and at least one hobby that does, look within yourself and ask some difficult questions and sort out what you believe you can solve by yourself and ask someone you can trust about those you can't answer on your own. If you aren't confident and comfortable with yourself then dating shouldn't be on your list of priorities yet, keep in mind there will be questions and insecurities that will never be resolved, or can't be resolved alone. I'm a man in a similar situation(20 years old) and it is tough. I'm quite lonely too but feeling a bit better. The honest truth is that it is going to be a bit tougher now that you might not have college anymore, but it is not all hopeless! We're probably going to have to put in more of an effort though. Just try to put yourself out there as much as you can. I really hope that you get what you want and end up having a beautiful family!

I've never wanted a bottle of vodka so much in my life. I'm a recovering alcoholic 16 months sober and close fucking it up 🥲 help me

jumpa88’s Profile PhotoStraightpipeq3
Well done on 16 months that's amazing. I guess try and look at your situation atm and think 'what is it that's making me need this so bad now, after 16 months?' has something happened, are you going through stress and stuff. If so then you need to recognise that your brain is just looking for a coping technique to help you deal with the situation you're in atm. But obviously drinking was a common coping technique you used for a long time, so instinctively your mind may autopilot feel its an option. But it's not, at least not the ONLY option. So your goal right now should to find a healthier coping technique. And starting by asking your mentor (if you have one from when you quit) or some counselling /seeing your doctor to find out resources for support. Will be helpful for you, because they can help you figure out ways and action plans you can do, to cope with what you're struggling with, in a more healthy coping way.
You owe it to yourself, to keep fighting for staying sober. Because no matter how bad you're feeling atm, or what's going on. Alcohol will only exasperate it and make it way worse for you, rather than help you manage these emotions. So if you're looking for a way to get rid of this discomfort long term that is the worst, least helpful way to help it.
Reach out for help, call some AA centers maybe or support numbers. So they can help talk you though alternative, healthier ways to deal with this xx

Lass dich von so reu.digem Na.zi-Ges.ocks wie da unten bitte niemals einschüchtern. Die sind nicht mehr als ne laute Minderheit, und ihre selbsternannte „Alternative“, die diese Schei.sse überhaupt erst wieder salonfähig gemacht hat, zerfleischt sich gegenwärtig von innen heraus... :)

Achwas, mir ist das vollkommen egal.
Weißt du, ich wurde in der Schule sehr oft gemobbt weil ich anscheinend nicht gut Deutsch sprechen kann und bla bla.
Dann kamen die Prüfungen und ich hatte nicht nur in der Prüfung, sondern auch im Zeugnis eine 1 in Deutsch. Ich war die beste aus 4 Klassen und schon waren alle leise.
Sowas berührt mich nicht.
Ich bin sehr stolz die Deutsche Sprache so gut beherrschen zu können.

Zweieinhalb Jahre durchgehende Isolation... Vermute ich Corona als Grund richtig? Gab es einen Zeitpunkt, an dem nah dran warst, die Isolation zu beenden?

Fruhlingspfutze’s Profile PhotoLebenstänzerin
Absolut. Unabhängig davon, dass aufgrund der medizinischen Daten jedem von einer Infektion, insbesondere ständige Infektionen, abzuraten ist, habe ich einige Risikofaktoren, die meisten davon sind nicht behebbar. Insofern muss ich eine Infektion zumindest so lange vermeiden, bis es aussichtsreiche medikamentöse Interventionen insbesondere für Langzeitfolgen gibt. Besonders persistierende Dyspnoe, oftmals im Zusammenhang mit den in der Fachwelt schon inoffiziell als "Covidlungen" bezeichneten in bildgebenden Verfahren sichtbaren Lungenschäden, wären in meinem Falle unter Umständen lebensgefährlich. Die Tatsache, dass die bereits beobachtete Häufung pulmonaler Zwischenfälle unter Narkose bis in die siebte Woche post Infektion unabhängig von der Verlaufsschwere auftritt ( https://www.bdc.de/empfehlungen-der-dgch-zur-terminierung-elektiver-operativer-eingriffe-nach-covid-19-infektion-und-impfung/ ), lässt ebenfalls auf ein Schadensausmaß schließen, das wir jetzt noch gar nicht ermessen können.
Die einzigen Zeitpunkte, in denen ich in Erwägung zog, die Isolation zu unterbrechen, waren eventuelle Zahnarztbesuche. Bis auf eine Ausnahme (im Sommer 2021) entschied ich mich aber dagegen. Die Sommer '20 und '21 waren dagegen allerdings recht entspannt, relativ niedrige Inzidenz. Das hat jetzt insbesondere die FDP zerstört.
Darüber hinaus kann ich die Isolation nicht beenden. Es ist immer eine Frage des Risk Assessments und Covid ist ein wirkliches Roulettespiel. Es ist, um das auch nochmal hinzuzufügen, absolut befremdlich, dass "fAcHlEuTe" wie Stöhr, von Tatsachen gänzlich unbeeindruckt, mit fehlerhaften Narrativen einer Immunität generierenden Infektion hausieren gehen. Reinfektionen sind keine Ausnahmen, sie sind die absolute Regel. "Schleimhautimmunität", ein Begriff, der insbesondere durch Drosten sehr große Öffentlichkeit erfahren hat, ist lediglich ein impliziertes Theorem, das viele (logischerweise) nicht einmal in Gänze verstehen. Bei vergleichsweise harmlosen respiratorischen Krankheiten (Covid-19 hat respiratorische Symptome, ist aber eine systemische Krankheit) ist die Präsenz einer Schleimhautimmunität auf Monaten, in manchen Fällen Wochen limitiert. Gäbe es einen nasalen Impfstoff, der hochwirksam ist, so wäre das sicherlich eine Alternative. Die Reinfektion allerdings birgt ein stetig steigendes Risiko ALLER mit Covid assoziierten Outcomes - von Hospitalisierung bis zu LC-Symptomatiken wie Fatigue ( https://www.researchsquare.com/article/rs-1749502/v1 ).
Vereinfacht gesagt: Wenn Du einen 50-seitigen RPG-Würfel immer neu würfelst, erhöht sich mit jedem Male die Wahrscheinlichkeit, dass Du die 36 bekommst. Genau das passiert gerade in Bezug auf Covid. Und jeder, der sich Sorgen um die Wirtschaft macht, sollte sich fragen, wie das dann in realiter bei Ausbleiben selbst von Mitigation nach 10 Jahren "Würfeln" durch 82 Millionen Menschen aussieht.
Selbst ohne Risikofaktoren würde ich alles tun, Infektionen zu vermeiden.

Da gerade so viele “glückliche” Fragen kamen: beginnt jemand, der stets glücklich ist, eher damit, über das Wesen des Glücks nachzudenken als jemand, der das Glück gar nicht kennt?

Schlagtot’s Profile PhotoDer Prinz von Bad Air™
Das Glück ist das Aufgehen der Seele im Lebendigen des Lebens!
So definiere ich das Glück und hoffe, dass deutlich wird, wie sich subjektive und objektive Welt miteinander verschränken. Die Begriffe lassen eine Offenheit zu, die notwendig ist, um dem Glück gerecht zu werden.
Diese Offenheit wäre zum Beispiel nicht gegeben, wenn ich sagen würde: «Glück ist, wenn dir alles gelingt, was du dir vornimmst und was du begehrst.» Das hat zwar auch eine Offenheit in den Formulierung «alles, was...» Aber auch eine Festlegung in der Formulierung «gelingt». Glück an das Gelingen anzuknüpfen zum Beispiel halte ich für einen Fehler. Denn auch das Misslingen von Vorhaben kann glücklich machen und zu unerwarteten Dingen führen. Also suche ich eine begriffliche Bestimmung in der Unbestimmtheit des Glücks. Diese Offenheit ist essentiell.
Was aber soll nun das «Lebendige des Lebens» sein? Ich habe im Hintergrund den Gedanken, dass es im Leben zwei Kräfte gibt: Kräfte der Zerstörung und des Tödlichen und Kräfte der Lebensförderung und Stärkung. Warum auch immer, ist das Leben offensichtlich nicht ohne beides in Einheit zu haben. Elan Mortal und Elan Vital nenne ich sie mal. Sigmund Freud sprach davon, dass jeder «Trieb» bei Verhinderung der Erfüllung in eine destruktive/aggressive und in eine konstruktive/erotische Komponente zerfalle. Also aus diesen beiden Komponenten bestehe. Ich kann mich dem anschließen, möchte aber eine Alternative zum Begriff «Trieb» haben.
Das Lebendige des Lebens macht nun alles aus oder ist das Ergebnis dessen, was die erotische, konstruktive, produktive Komponente hervorzubringen vermag. Elan Vital! Nun aber kann ich abenteuerlich mich fragen, ob nicht auch der Elan Mortal glücklich machen kann.
Sich mit diesen Dingen beschäftigen zu können, empfinde ich als einen großen Glücksfall. Das fügt sich in meine einheitliche Subjekt-Objekt-Welt. Und ich bin Dir sehr dankbar dafür, dass du einen Teil dieser Welt ausmachst und von außen mir Impulse einreichst - objektive Impulse, die es nicht geben könnte, wenn es mich nicht gäbe! Also bist du auch ein Teil meiner subjektiven Welt.

Le persone vere, su Ask (nell’anima, nel modo di porsi, nell’essere), sono sempre più rare. Ciò è lo specchio di quello che si riscontra nella società odierna, oppure è semplicemente questo luogo che è stato reso avverso alla verità?

È una bella domanda, alla quale non so se so rispondere, sai, però questo concetto della gente "vera" per quanto MI riguarda, si può estendere a tutti gli ambiti e a tutti i contesti della vita quotidiana. Forse più che persone non vere, si tratta di mantenerla, quella indole e quella autenticità, perché vedo sempre di più la paura non solo di esporsi, ma il tentativo di omologarsi, conformarsi, anche nello stesso anticonformismo. Quindi le cose diverse, alternative, o i valori che condividono poche persone, vendono magari combattuti, ma per pura facciata, solo perché "va di moda".
Le persone che dicono di amare l'autenticità, la verità, sono le stesse che poi si allontanano per avere a fianco una persona meno autentica, o ricercare una cosa più gestibile, più malleabile, sia in termini di relazione che di persona. La verità è veramente "scomoda", al giorno d'oggi. Ed è un peccato perché le persone che invece la perpetuano, combattono per averla, restano più sole, di quelle che fingono, di quelle che si accontentano. Ora, il motivo preciso non lo so, con i social c'è sempre più rischio, a causa dello strumento stesso, di polarizzazione di opinioni ed idee, e quello di magari tendere anche ad esprimere opinioni che non rispecchiano fermamente la nostra idea, scrivendo di più ciò che è più accettato socialmente, o quello che pensiamo lo sia di più. Su ask vedo, più che in passato, maggiore superficialità sia nelle risposte, che anche nei profili che cerchi, e vai poi a seguire, nonostante come dico sempre ci sono profili che seguo e che rimangono molto interessanti, e non si fermano ai monosillabi per rispondere. Questo piace a me. Riflettere, analizzare, anche a costo di impazzire.
Oltre a questi elemento, come dici tu, c'è meno autenticità, forse per mancanza di tempo e di voglia. Forse anche legato al periodo storico in cui viviamo molte persone non si esprimono perché fanno fatica a capire chi sono, e sui social forse si vede maggiormente, perché alcuni lati+

Why are people on the left joining the right?

"The Turn" by Liel Leibovitz (part 1)
For many years—most of my politically cognizant life, in fact—I felt secure in my politics. Truth and justice, I believed, leaned leftward. If you were some version of a decent human being, you cared about those less fortunate than you, which meant that you supported a whole host of measures designed to even the playing field a little. Sometimes, these measures had unintended consequences (see under: Stalin, Josef), but that wasn’t reason enough to despair of the long march to equality. Besides, there was hardly an alternative: On the other end of the political transom lurked despicable creeps, right-wing orcs who either cared for nothing but their own petty financial interests or, worse, pined for benighted isms that preached prejudice and hate. We were on the right side of history. We were the people. We were the ones giving peace a chance. And, no matter the present, we were always the future.
This belief carried me through high school, and a brief stint in a socialist youth movement. It accelerated me in college, sending me anywhere from joint marches with Palestinians to a two-week hunger strike in Jerusalem trying (and failing) to lower tuition for underprivileged students. It pulled me to New York, to Columbia University, to more left-wing politics and activism and raging against Republicans whose agenda, especially in the 2000s, seemed like nothing more than greed and war.
And it wasn’t just an ideology, some abstract set of convictions that were accessible only through cracking open dusty old books. It was the animating spirit of life itself: The dinner parties I attended on the Upper West Side required dismissive comments on President Bush just as much as they did a bit of wine to make the evening bright, and there was no faster or surer way to signal to a new acquaintance that you were a kindred spirit than praising the latest Times editorial. It wasn’t performative, exactly. At least, it felt real enough, the reverent rites of a good group of people protecting itself against the bad guys.
I embraced my people, and my people embraced me. They gave me everything I had always imagined I wanted: a Ph.D. from an Ivy League university; a professorship at NYU, complete with a roomy office overlooking Washington Square Park; book deals; columns in smart little publications; invitations to the sort of soirees where you could find yourself seated next to Salman Rushdie or Susan Sontag or any number of the men and women you grew up reading and admiring. The list goes on. Life was good. I was grateful.
And then came The Turn. If you’ve lived through it yourself, you know that The Turn doesn’t happen overnight, that it isn’t easily distilled into one dramatic breakdown moment, that it happens hazily and over time—first a twitch, then a few more, stretching into a gnawing discomfort and then, eventually, a sense of panic.

Warum glaubst Du, dass sich manche Menschen völlig auf Verschwörungstheorien fixieren, obwohl diese so eindeutig gegen die allgemein anerkannten Überzeugungen gerichtet sind ?

XxSuperwomenxX’s Profile PhotoEponomasie
Ich halte Verschwörungstheorien für die Schattenseite der Aufklärung und des Kantschen "Sapere aude!"
Wissenschaftliche und soziale Fortschritte der letzten Jahrhunderte sind gewiss darauf zurückzuführen, dass Obrigkeiten wie Kirche und Kaiser in Frage gestellt und kritisch beleuchtet wurden.
Allerdings verlor der Mensch vermehrt den Glauben an ein höheres Wesen und eine höhere Ordnung, stattdessen wurde unnachgiebiger Skeptizismus schick. Alles, was dem Menschen Sicherheit in einer scheinbar immer willkürlicher, sinnloser und absurder werdenden Welt schenkte, schien der Aufklärung zum Opfer zu fallen.
Wie lassen sich aber nun dieser intrinsische Wunsch nach einer höheren Ordnung und hochintellektuelle Skepsis verheiraten, ohne der Unmündigkeit, "Faulheit und Feigheit" im Sinne Kants bezichtigt zu werden?
Man denkt sich einen Verschwörungsmythos inklusive überlegener Wesen und Organisationen wie Aliens, Reptiloiden, Weltjudentum oder NWO aus und stilisiert sich selbst zum großen Aufklärer, der die Menschheit vor der übermächtigen Bedrohung retten wird.
Ähnlich wie in einer Sekte überzeugt man mehr und mehr Jünger von den eigenen Theorien (was dem Internet zum Danke überraschend einfach zu funktionieren scheint) und erhebt sie so zu einer tatsächlichen intersubjektiven Wirklichkeit.
Und dann wird frech mit Kant argumentiert, dass der generische Ungläubige von denen da oben wie "Hausvieh [...] dumm gemacht [...] und sorgfältig verhütet" wurde.
Verschwörungsmythen scheinen also ein Kompromiss zwischen Dogmatismus und Aufklärung sein zu wollen, der erwartungsgemäß voll nach hinten los geht.
Aber wenigstens sind sie (zumindest überwiegend) absurd bis lustig und weniger gefährlich als die Alternative eines jenen Strebens nach sicheren Systemen im Zeitalter der Postmoderne - zu politischen Narrativen erhobene Ideologien aller Art.
Wobei die Grenzen zugegebenermaßen teilweise erschreckend fließend zu sein scheinen.

Do you mic cabinets for recording or use virtual cabs whats better?

Traditional cabinets with microphones give me the best results and that's what I use for final recordings. However, virtual cabs can be an excellent alternative if your space is limited and you need a quick solution, fewer headaches and plenty of options. For me, virtual cabs are usually better and easier to use for capturing and / or experimenting with initial ideas but to my ears, nothing sounds as good and authentic as real cabinets with genuine microphones.

"Quite simply? I am Fate. Visiting your husband on account the differences in his methods fascinate me. You needn't worry, I don't typically bother with alternative universe types, I don't have power over them so why even bother."

And my husband is different somehow? Different enough to gain your attention. Not only that but enough attention to draw you here?

Wofür bist du eigentlich zu alt, machst es aber trotzdem.?

sophielix’s Profile PhotoElisariphine
Gemäß diverser Mitmenschen bin ich wohl für so einiges "zu alt" - laut denen geht man offenbar ab Mitte 20 nicht mehr aus und hockt nur noch daheim. Hobbys und Interessen scheinen auch verpönt, jedenfalls bekomme ich gerne ziemlich angepisst gesagt, "deine Zeit möchte ich Mal haben" oder auch "du musst ja Geld haben" - weil ich Freude am Shopping habe, gerne was unternehme und dergleichen. Aber das sind dann meistens Leute mit Kindern, deren Leben irgendwie auf einen Schlag zu Ende ist, wo es nur noch Kind hinten, Kind vorne und herumlaufen wie Mutter Flodder gibt.
Das ist ok für mich - wenn DAS die Alternative ist, bin ich in deren Augen von Herzen gerne "zu alt für XY" oder "komisch". 🤣
Das ist dann offensichtlich einfach nur Neid.
Mein Freund und ich machen uns dann auch gerne einen Spaß daraus. Am Samstag waren wir spontan bei der Familie zum Kaffee eingeladen und es war klar, dass wieder die ganzen jungen Eltern da sein werden. Wir kamen als letztes, "weil gerade aufgestanden", mit Sonnenbrillen und ich mit Designer Täschchen, ich habe mich hingesetzt, mir demonstrativ ein Glas Hugo einschenken lassen und habe verkündet: hach, ich bin noch gar nicht richtig wach. 🤣🤣
Ich bevorzuge es, mich ausschließlich auf den angenehmen Teil des Erwachsen-Seins zu konzentrieren, und mich nicht plötzlich wie eine scheinto.te Großmutter zu verhalten, deren einzige Freude im Leben augenscheinlich noch ist, dass bei Sonnenschein "die Wäsche so schön schnell trocken ist". 🤦🏻
Und die Leute sind oft erschreckend jung, die so drauf sind, da kann man im Gegensatz genauso fragen, ob die nicht zu jung dafür sind, anstatt jemand anderes zu alt für was auch immer...

does it bother you when people answer with a short answer or do you not care?

I am more interested in the content of the response. When the answer is thoughtful, rational and fact based I will pay attention and might even respond; however, if the response is emotional, hyperbolic, irrational and not supported by sufficient evidence or facts, as is so often the case with immature and poorly educated woke activists, I block them and delete their nonsensical response.
Why?
I do not have the time, patience, or inclination to debate intellectually lazy people who refuse to study and acquire relevant knowledge by performing the necessary research. So I quickly lose interest because I perceive it as a waste of time, plus I find no satisfaction in attempting to debate someone who has already made up their mind and are unwilling to listen to alternative opinions and facts, or even consider the possibility that their perception of reality is incorrect.

Quanto diamine è fondamentale guidare? Opinioni

È fondamentale se non si hanno alternative altrettanto valide: per chi come me vive in provincia, o in zone piuttosto remote o meno praticate dai mezzi pubblici, l'automobile é l'unico mezzo di trasporto al quale ci si può affidare (a parte la più ecologica bicicletta). Nella maggior parte delle città oggi la storia è ben diversa e uno può vivere tranquillamente anche senza saper guidare ma affidandosi solo ad autobus, tram, metropolitana e simili.

Should I let my daughter have a relationship with her biological father? So I had her when I was 17, he was 21 at the time. For first few years I begged him to be there for her. After I got tired, I cut all communication with him. Now he wants to see her.

I have never encountered anything like this with my husband. Because our kids are very young.
But... if it was to happen in my alternative universe, when I divorced my husband and never seen any of his children. I would a disgrace to my kids and they would hate me for divorcing their father to begin with.
They would question to me: "Why divorced dad? We thought you loved him?" I would hate myself to be put in that situation, where my kids would take their dad's side than me.
So, to answer your question I would let my children to see their father. Because he hasn't been in their life for a long time, whether its 5 or 10 years ago.

Na infância aprendemos muito por imitar os outros, depois de grande você costuma imitar amigos e pessoas próximas, ou sempre analisa e pensa duas vezes antes de agir?

In childhood we learn a lot by imitating others, after growing up do you usually imitate friends and close people, or do you always analyse and think twice before acting?" ""
*****************
Reality , although resisted for many decades , is continually catching up .
I feel it caught up . . . . an awfully long time ago.
I think the last time I fell back into intensely comparing , was my first pre-production-meeting ; in the company of 'big men' ~ with the exception of around 4 fellow managers , they were all millionaire-share-holding directors . . . .
omg, I was totally out of my depth @ only 27 ; but I never ever copied or emulated , nor tried to . . . . I'm realising as I type , & it could tip me into terminal depression , I honestly could think on my feet , assess a situation & take control . . . of myself ~ around 50+ times faster than I can now ; I no longer quite break out in a cold sweat of embarrassment at the memory of some of what I came out with
I think I should delete this . . . .
You see , from very early childhood , my parent's goal seemed to be to totally crush my self-confidence development .
So I convinced my self (& my friends ) especially throughout teens , that I was so far up above . . . there are still 3 of my teen friends are my closest friends today . . . .
It's hard to explain , but I never imitated , I always found my own alternative & elevated it .
I recently confided in one of these friends (when he was by 'BEST MAN' at my wedding 2 years past January) that almost all of what people in our teens assumed of me was fake ~ & it was pure assumption on their part . I just didn't comment . Well be was stunned , I think he thought I was joking !
~ so , I'm sure I auto-analysed & still do . . . but its purely subconscious ~ like breathing .
But never imitated/emulated ; impossible when you need to be alternative , elevate . . .
Thank God the idiots/british dolts & ditsies won't have read this far . 1% is beyond their endurance .
~this little b*st*rd as a 2 year-old~no-one to emulate~ever~

is pop punk still a thing? maybe i'm just not updated, but it feels to me as if pop punk died somewhere in the 2000s. like you know those super famous bands like panic at the disco, fall out boy, green day, paramore, blink 182, sum 41, avril (i think avril was pop punk too idk)

i personally like to think it’s dead because the alternative means that machine gun kelly & yungblud are the “new” punk pop and that’s so, so much worse

what the best distraction you could give to me, someone who want to get rid literally everything he's feeling right now.

You can't get rid of them. It's impossible.
The only way you can get rid of them is to let them out. Feel the emotions. Don't ignore them. Unexpressed emotions will never die. They are buried alive, and will come forth later, in uglier ways. So let them out, just make sure you don't hurt yourself or others as you do so. Find a better alternative to cope.
You can cry, scream, rage. Feel them now so you won't have to later. After you're done, you'll look back and learn something from it. There's always a lesson in everything. So good luck, you got this!

Is there like a dress code in church? Like do you have to wear formal dresses and shoes

There is no dress code in the churches I attend (except for musicians and choir members). Wearing levi's or sneakers is accepted as are members of the LGBTQ community, the homeless, the disabled and all minorities. The services that I perform at focus on the teachings of Christ and the practical applications of those teachings. The church does not condone or encourage hate, division, racism, homophobia or misogyny, etc. Instead, the uniqueness of each individual, our differences and shared humanity are celebrated. For example, I am a heterosexual, but I respect the rights of alternative lifestyles and people to make their own personal decisions as long as they do not hurt other people in the process.
I understand that religions have made many mistakes in the past and will continue to make mistakes in the future, because we are human; but, in my opinion, the churches that I belong to (Catholic and Unity) are accepting of all people and they try their best through education and various charitable ministries to make the world we live in a better and more hospitable place for all.

How do you a person is the love of your life?

I'm not sure about other people but I knew when my partner came out as transgender. My mind immediately went to 'this is over' and most people I spoke to assumed I would leave the relationship. I was beside myself and so were they. We spent nights crying about it together. That was when we suddenly realised that neither of us wanted it to end and that even if we lost friends or family over the decision to stay together we wanted to still have each other and the alternative was misery. That was when I knew.
