Saw this article about an Iowa meth dealer to be the third person executed this week.
This article about the second execution indicates it’s been almost 20 years since the last executions. Why are three happening all of a sudden in the span of a week? Was there a recent legal policy or something passed that cleared the way now?

AITA for resenting my family for something that happened over a decade ago?
when i was 15 i was in a car accident. i was riding my bike on new bike lanes that my city had installed, and a car hit me. I ended up having to go to the hospital, nothing major, the car was turning onto the main road when it hit me so it was going well below the speed limit. but since it was a car accident, i was forced into the ambulance and shipped off to the hospital to get x-rays.
since i was a minor, I wasn't allowed to be released from the hospital without my family coming to pick me up. I didn't have a cell-phone at the time, so i called my home phone with the hospital phone, no answer. the nurse told me they'll try to contact them while i go into get examined. not too serious, since i'm still a live, but my leg was broken, and i still kinda walk weird (when walking, my right leg foot prints are straight while my left foot is angled ~30 degrees outward).
when all that was done, they said they were still unable to get a hold of anyone from my family. 8 hours later, and who kn

Eddie Murphy was comedy gold in the 1980's. He made hit after hit for almost a decade. They were well directed, acted, edited, and told a great story.
Classic after classic all while making two of the biggest comedy specials that are still talked about to this day.
48 Hours, Beverly Hills Cop I & II, Golden Child, Trading Places, Harlem Nights, Coming to America (probably the best "rom-com" of all time). All classics.
His movies were put together so well and told a great story. Eddie had the ability to make a regular situation and just make it funny.
Edit: Added Harlem Nights. I thought this was a 90’s movies.
edit 2: People are saying about Joe Rogan on a recent podcast. Unfortunately, I haven't listened to it (yet). But I was watching the Eddie Murphy episode of Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee with Jerry Seinfeld last night. It brought back a lot of memories of Eddie for me.

‘Deal of a decade’: How buying TikTok could transform Microsoft
Adding TikTok would make Microsoft a major player in the digital ad business, which currently has 70% of market share going to Google, Facebook, and Amazon, according to eMarketer.
Among 18 to 24 year-olds, only 17% use Microsoft-owned LinkedIn. For TikTok, that number is more than double at 42%. Only Instagram (82%), Twitter (46%), and Facebook (46%) have a greater reach with young adults.
Around 90% of Microsoft’s $1.6 trillion current valuation can be attributed to its enterprise cloud strategy, including Azure and Office 365, according to Wedbush. Acquiring TikTok would help Microsoft diversify its business and find new areas for growth.

I have lied about having relationships for the past decade just to be socially accepted
M28 here, never had a girlfriend, never kissed anyone let alone have sex. I feel belittled seeing people 10-12 years younger than me living their sexual fantasies. I've been made fun of (both by guys and girls alike), girls can't stop pitying at me while guys can't stop teasing me.
So, to get rid of all these haunting experiences, after college ended, i have given a random number to the relationships that i have had (in my dreams). The results have been positive, people don't look at me like a loser anymore.
I'm in grad school right now and seeing everyone talk about their past relationships makes me angry at myself, i feel like punching my face.
Its not a good feeling to know that you've been lying to yourself for more than 7 years, there have been days where its just hard to focus on my studies, career.. anything. I just feel like sitting and crying, but the tears just won't come out. Today is one such day.

For the first time in a decade of gaming, I cried because of a sexist asshole
I was doing okay as a Warlock support and our Invoker was doing good as well. Never used the mic until 30 minutes in where I said, "We can push." because the enemies were dead. All of a sudden he spouted a lot of vitriol, telling me to go change my napkin and I have a smelly pu**y and a lot more things. It was so sudden and such a 180 turn because before he knew that I was a woman, he was fairly quiet.
Maybe today is a bad day, but I f*cking hate how it made me cry. I feel dumb because I should already be used to this, but this was such an unexpected sexist outburst that it caught me off guard. I hate myself for being affected in the first place and I hate how everyone else was egging him on. I never would have asked for a white knight but it sure sucked when we're all doing okay and winning and all of a sudden they descended upon me just because I'm a woman.

I went from suicidal depression to a fully functional, six figure earning, happy individual over the last decade. AMA.
My experiences might be useful for those struggling with depression and I'm happy to answer any questions that might help you.
I was diagnosed with depression in my teens and have struggled with it and learned from it over the last ten-fourteen years. I don't think I can say I've recovered because I think it's something you learn to live with and manage, but there is no magic cure. That being said, there are several ways to get better and stay better.
I feel the need to be good at something, to learn a skill (doesn't even need to make money right away, just when I'm an expert). But my brain is so fried and shit after more than a decade of depression that I have no interests, no passions, no imagination.
I've searched for so long for something to interest me, some skill to learn. I've FORCED myself to try things, to do them despite the feeling of boredom and pointlessness. But nothing stuck, because you have to have at least a little interest in something to stick with it.
It seems like nowadays all my brain is good for is vegetating, watching the same sitcoms on repeat for the 50th time, day in, day out, while going through the motions in the rest of my life.
I just want something to find interesting and to become good at, an expert in something.
