Okay, this is a long one, but I hope it is worth the read. My wife is a long-time lurker, and I have recently started reading these and listening to the stories, so I was inspired to post.
My parents have long been a pain in my ass but, for now, I am going to mainly focus on my Thanksgiving from Hell and the incidents leading to it. A few years ago I met my future wife on an online dating app. We hit it off fairly quickly and the relationship progressed really fast. I was in my late 20s, she turned 30 soon after we met. We both had a good idea of what we were looking for in a partner and had no interest in games. I met her parents within a few months, though I was much more reluctant to introduce her to mine for reasons that will become apparent.
The problems began almost as soon as I told my folks I was dating someone. This was about 6 months into my relationship as I was reluctant to inform my parents, due to the fact that they had tried to call the cops on my last long-term girlfriend (might share that story later). Myself, my brother, and my parents were having dinner at a local mexican restaurant and making small talk. They started asking me questions about my girlfriend, mostly the usual innocent questions, but at some point I let slip that she was Jewish… boy was that a mistake…My parents are hyper-conservative christians. For years they had been trying to get me to date a girl from our church (a good friend of mine, but we were never really a match to be a couple), and always expected I would marry someone who was at least Christian. I am Christian by belief to this day, but I rarely have interactions with the church due to some incidents with the priest (not that kind of incident, but yet another good story for later). My dad, without missing a beat, told me I should break up with her. He told me that I ‘was going to marry a Christian girl’ and that was that. I was pissed and I don’t remember the full extent of the rest of that conversation, but I told him that I was not breaking up with her and the rest of the dinner was tense.
The next couple of months went about as smooth as you might imagine, but I thought I was slowly wearing them down. At some point they invited my girlfriend and I over for dinner, and I thought there was finally some progress being made. Nope! They got my brother to distract me in another room of the house while they sat down with my girlfriend and explained why they did not think she was good for me. They straight... keep reading on reddit ➡
I believe that in a last effort to distract apes and get us to sell they will attempt to divide our attention. They will make AMC rise to let us believe we picked the wrong stock.
They want us to FOMO into something else so they can get our shares!
They did this with Doge and didn't work, I'm proud of you apes! But they are so desperate that they will try anything before letting GME skyrocket.
HOLD to the moon!, 🚀🚀🚀🚀🚀🚀🚀🌕

Hi all so here’s my fourth or third story I can’t remember lol. Sorry these are all scattered across the timeline of my life but me and my mate was talking about this today and I thought you guys might get a chuckle out of our stupidity.
Everyone loves a good ol rainy Sunday, stay at home and get fucked with the homie, right? Yeah that was my idea of A good time, an oz of weed like 20 hulk pressies, my homie and YouTube. Today however was special as I was waiting on a package...
1g of methaqualone straight from South Africa, now I’m sure everyone has heard of quaaludes, well I got a motherfucking gram. Anyways postie shows up I get my package with a huge grin on my face. Anyways I bring it in and I just got the baggie out when I get a msg, it’s my opi plug. At this time I was HUGE into any opiate/opiod I could get, I’d always wanted to try an opana or oxymorphone, but could NEVER find it.
Anyways my plug tells me he’s got a couple in and he won’t have them for long. SCORE I was thinking (NOT) the ONE time this guy had em in I and my homie had no cheddar at all. We went fiend mode and thought for ages. AHHA rob a corner store, easy enough right? Yeah, so we planned to do it later about 7pm it was getting real dark around then, we dressed in all black and grabbed a knife and a backpack. I got pretty nervous, I NEEDED to be wasted if I was gonna do this.
So my intelligent barred out ass went to weigh 300mg of quaalude powder, only my scales were fucked so somehow I ended up taking probably somewhere around 700mg. I also decided to eat half a bar, (please don’t ever do this combo).
Anyways we got to the shop, I’m getting slapped by these bars but I’m still conscious, my friend is pretty sober tho. Without further or do we ran in through the door to the counter, and I pulled my knife and started screaming at the cashier to pull the money out of the register. At this point my friend was stuffing expensive liquor into his bag.
So as this was happening, my muscles started tensing up, and my eyes started twitching. BOOM this methaqualone was HITTING me. The cashier pulls out the money and as I go to take it, my arms get so heavy I can barely move them, and I feel my eyes roll back. BOOM I’m out.
According to the hospital I had a massive seizure, and died but was resuscitated and barely lived, and was lucky I didn’t get permanent brain damage. Once I recovered, me and my friend was summoned to court and ordered to go to jail for a year and do a shit ton of... keep reading on reddit ➡
In Greenland, Butler keeps his Scottish accent and doesn't even attempt to try an American one, and his performance is all the better for it. It's basically a meme at this point but he has historically not been great at dropping the accent and trying to sound "American".
In Greenland he really shines as a result. Just a grizzled dude who happens to have a Scottish accent trying to save his family. I'll admit that historically I have been unsure of his talent, but it's clear to me now that he does actually have "the stuff" even if his role selection should limited.
No, making a movie about Asian characters is not pandering to China. Shang-Chi is for Asian Americans first and foremost. We are 3 phases into the MCU and still no Asian-led films. It's not even being well received in China right now, and they could have made smarter choices if making money in China was their main intent for this movie.
To those of you calling this movie CCP propaganda because it contains Asian characters, but don't say the same about every other MCU film, that is racist asf. Reflect on that a bit. Otherwise, I guess we're just not allowed to have Asian characters in any movie because apparently that's pandering to China.
Shang-Chi is widely regarded as the NUMBER ONE most skilled fighter in the Marvel Universe, and we get epic martial arts scenes and Asian representation. So yes, he deserves an entire trilogy, and this movie will be great.
