In the United States at least, you can own a firearm, drive a vehicle, and enlist in the military at age 18. You are considered an "adult" when you fuck up in the name of the law. But at the same time, heaven forbid you drink a beer with your friends, have a cigarette, or rent a car because you're not... an adult. Fuck out of here. Make it one age and call it a day.
THE UPDATE YOU'VE ALL BEEN WAITING FOR: head over to this post by u/DJ117Xx for pictures of a llama in a tuxedo. https://www.reddit.com/r/pics/comments/fbzigv/5_years_ago_i_promised_my_sister_i_would_bring_a/?utm_medium=android_app&utm_source=share
The original owner of the llama my friend had booked ghosted him about a week before the wedding. My friend then found another person who had a llama handy with a week to spare. His name is Shocky and he is a very good llama and I love him very much. The suit didn't turn out how I wanted it to, but that's pretty much what everyone says when they make something. All in all, it's been an unforgettable day.
Original post: I've been hired to make a tuxedo for a llama and I don't have it's measurements. I'm also assuming the llama is male.
The measurements needed are: Length of legs from just above hoof (ankle?) to bottom of torso Height from bottom of torso to back of neck Distance around neck Width across shoulders

I've noticed a disproportionately large amount of young Americans, who happen to identify themselves or push for a communist system, have little to absolutely no experience outside the middle class American shell.
Coming from someone who is from a 3rd world country, lifestyle in middle class America, regardless of lack of potential affordable medicare (something everyone deserves), is an extremely comfortable lifestyle. Many people assume they understand the capitalist system is terrible, yet they haven't experienced a single second of life outside of one, and are unaware of how comfortable life REALLY is in their experience.
While you do not need to experience the horrors of many things to fully understand them yourself, I truly feel as if there is a major disconnection of lots of younger adults in their lifestyles that pushes them to want a completely different system such as communism.
I’ve recently decided (100% thanks to this sub) that I’m an atheist. People on here kindly showed me how some of my lingering beliefs weren’t logical and helped me let go of my past. Now, I’m fairly young (22) and feel like it took me way too long to come to this conclusion. Growing up, I always looked up to adults that were Christians and whenever I heard that some celebrity or politician was Christian, it made me happy. Now that I’m an atheist, I find it pretty disturbing/weird that people in their 40s/50s/60s still believe in God. It’s just strange to me that they got that far in life without ever questioning it. I started questioning it about 4 or 5 years ago, which ultimately led me to deconverting. Seeing these older people talking about how Jesus is their friend and God is with them just creeps me out. If someone their age said that Santa was real or that they believed in the Force, everyone would think they’re batshit crazy. I don’t know if anyone else experienced this after be... keep reading on reddit ➡
I'm big into anime, gaming, and just internet culture in general. I started out going to local cons cosplaying and everyone always wanted pictures with me. Some even let you setup a booth and collect "donations." I noticed I had a bit of demand from these things which led me to trying various forms of "camming" online.
Turns out I found a few small untapped niches in those communities(I don't want to be too specific) and what started as dabbling turned into $60k a year and me working from home permanently with this as my full time gig.
Most of my friends know about my job it's not some big secret. So, I had a friend over hanging out with me and she wanted a cup of espresso from my espresso machine. I had just washed my only two coffee cups I have in the dishwasher with a batch of my 10 or so toys since I finished a show earlier in the day. I told her to grab one out of the dishwasher not even thinking about it being a big deal.
So boom, she opened it and immediately started freakin... keep reading on reddit ➡
I just had the most insane realization on my way to work. I realize this may be commonplace to other people, but I think you guys here will understand.
I'm 22. I'm an adult. I get to choose. Literally everything in my life, where I live, where I work, what I buy, who I date... it's all up to me. I get to pick. If someone I love is treating me poorly-- I get to leave. I get to choose not to see them. I'm not selfish for wanting better, it's not the "best I can get". I don't have to settle. There's no obligation, I'm not trapped or stuck. I literally can choose ANYTHING I want.
I'm going to talk to my open relationship boyfriend and tell him I don't want to see him anymore. I'm going to date someone who wants what I want. I'm going to rent a car and drive to Yellowstone by myself. I'm going to be happy.
My parents relationship is fucked up and my home life has always been a shit show. I'm currently miserable. But I don't have to be.
I get to choose now, and **I want to choose be... keep reading on reddit ➡
If your child comes to you at 12 and says dad and mom, I know everyone thinks I’m a boy but I think I’m a girl, you can support them, make sure they know that that’s perfectly fine but any changes they want to make to their body should not be supported in any way until they are adults and can go themselves. If they get to that stage and transition, then fully support them, but not while they are godamn children.
Edit: My first silver! Thank you kind stranger :-)
I’m so sick of my parents completely glossing over the past. They were abusive as shit growing up. To the point where a few years ago, after having gone through multiple medical tests and literally YEARS of non-stop, painful menstruating, I was diagnosed with a rare condition that 1) increases my risk of uterine cancer 2) has affected my fertility to the point where it will be ‘very difficult’ for me to become pregnant should I want to, and 3) is directly a result of ‘chronic stress’ from a young age. I was told by the doctors that this condition usually only affects people who are severely malnourished and/or grew up in a war zone.
This really drove home to me the full extent of my parents’ abuse. I told my mother all this back when I was diagnosed. And she acts like nothing happened. A few years go by, and it’s like she’s completely forgotten, and she’s going on at me and my long-term partner to have a baby, because, ‘once you pass 30, it gets far more difficult to conceive’!

Edit: Thank you all so much for contributing! I’m planning on making a list of problems I would like to teach my daughter how to prepare for even if I haven’t experienced myself so she can also spread the knowledge❤️.
Edit #2: Again thank you all who commented on this post, I think a lot of women brought up common misconceptions. I have to go to bed soon, so I highlighted the main issues that were brought up by many of you since there are a lot of comments, I hope this helps! And sorry if it looks weird I’m on mobile.

Found Personal Finance Canada about 2 months ago which led me to reading the Millionaire Teacher and the Wealthy Barber. So I proceeded to throw a wad of cash into index funds 1.5 months ago........
Convince me the world doesn’t revolve around me and this isn’t some evil joke?
Also, per those book’s advice, I continue buying throughout this shit storm and plan to do so each pay cheque...
I know grown ass adults that take multiple trips a year to Disney World to do the same thing every time, take pictures with their favourite characters and stock up on items they don't have. Even obsessed with buying knick knacks online, wearing the merch everyday, shaping their food in characters, talking about it, going to everything related to Disney, making it a part of their daily lives. I even know a couple that customized their kitchen to a Mickey and Minnie theme- making sure their 12 inch statues have a shelf to sit on. Extreme. Bizarre.
It's different when you have kids because its all magical to them. But when you're an adult, fully aware its just other adults (or teenagers) dressed up as characters, its weird.
I'm enjoying the incoming hate on this post- this one really fired people up.
Legos came in a kit with all the necessary pieces from what I remember.
Jokes aside the last PC I built was when I was a kid using scavenged parts out of bins from my local computer repair shop. I was Dr. Frankenstein and my monster somehow miraculously was able to play the Warcraft games. Even with me having zero knowledge on what I was creating.
Over the past week I've learned, or tried to learn, how to build a PC properly. So I come here today, pride set to the side, to ask for help, feedback, opinions, reassurance and any knowledge this community can give.
Budget is $1000 for a gaming PC. For games like Destiny 2, Monster Hunter World, Sea of Thieves, Anthem, Elite Dangerous. Obviously anything cheaper for around the same performance is much appreciated.
Edit: Wow! Was not expecting to wake up to this much feedback! Someone dropped a gold, that blew my mind. Thank you. And thank you to everyone who took their time to give their feedback. I'm pretty sure now that AMD is the CP... keep reading on reddit ➡
...until my colleague explained: "No, it's not a weird sex cult place or nudist colony, it just means children are not allowed on the property."
I pressed "Book Now" so hard, that I need a new Magic Mouse.
I signed up in 2016. I had been to a few sales and what I saw was pieces flying off the racks. I guess I paid little attention to the garbage pieces because I was more interested in finding pieces I liked. The fun prints also excited me. I bought my little sister a watermelon dress and piano key leggings. Looking back, I didnt really like the print of the first perfect tee i bought. It was more that I liked the fit of the style. It accentuated my chest and minimized focus on my stomach. And since I didnt love any of the prints in my size, I think I subconsciously picked the least hideous. I loved the soft leggings and the tops were still made in the US and held up well. I even still have some of those early pieces and four years later, they still hold up. I had inherited some money recently and purchased a house and lula roe seemed like a fun way to get my mind off the illness and death of my father, and try to pay off the house faster.
In the beginning, stuff did sell. I remember m... keep reading on reddit ➡
Edit: I've finally made it back from work to read all the comments I appreciate your willingness to contribute to the conversation, some of you more civily than others. Many of you have shared my same concerns for both pursuing further action to give these photos back, or destroying them. A few of you provided really great perspectives and illuminated new concerns that I hadn't considered, which is what I was looking for to help me make an appropriate, more informed decision.
I've decided to destroy the photos and leave the couple unaware that the photos have been found. I've left the original post (with updates for further clarification as to the context and background of the story) for posterity.
I (37M) found a couple's dirty photos in a vinyl album I recently purchased from a thrift store.
The photos feature a man fully nude and his presumed girlfriend in a bra. The man is the figure in the most compromising position, and I assume he took them as a gift for his girlfri... keep reading on reddit ➡
You know how stress just makes everything worse in life? Well, it makes my ADD spiral out of control.
You know it's really bad when you go to make pancakes, pour the batter into a hot frying pan, hear the phone go off, pick it up to see what it was, then end up on the couch looking at Facebook while the pancake burns and causes a smoke cloud to fill the house.
Just dig the hole and throw me in it. I can't adult at all today. I'm starving and I think I'll just make a bowl of cereal and leave the stove alone...
Edit: I wasn't expecting this to blow up, but I wanted to say I really freaking appreciate it. This subreddit is seriously the best. You all made my day and helped me feel like less of a f up. I might not respond to all of you, but I honestly and truly appreciate every response.
I'm in my early 20s. People say I got my life in order but they always bring up one thing that eats me inside....how come no girl has picked you up yet? They always like to say stuff like... You are really handsome, smart, funny, you got a nice job a car a place, you finishing school with a promising degree...etc...how come you do t have anyone in your life?
I know these are meant to be complements but I personally find it hurtful. I have little to no experience in dating or even having a girl mostly due to a lack of confidence in my youth. Now, after some self growth, I became the man I always wanted to be and believe me when I say that I feel more prepared to date now than I've ever been.
But I simply dont got the TIME OR ENERGY anymore. I go to school and when I dont go to school I work and what little time left is spent at the gym. Worse, I simply lack the energy anymore to put into dates. The last few girls ended with nothing...all the time and energy wasted....
