Happy Sunday ladies! I’m 27 F almost 28 and I’ve been in a relationship for seven years with a man who is 8 years older than me as we started dating while I was in college. Now that I’m older and we’ve been through so much, I feel and fear that I’ve outgrown him. I feel I’m pleading and dragging him to keep up with me, to please make plans about marriage or children. He’s usually dismissive about these plans, as if I’m still 20. He’s been out of work for 4 years due to a mental health disability that he sometimes accepts the diagnosis but most of the time doesn’t.
I hold a lot resentment towards him (he tells me to get over it because he doesn’t remember most of it or the emotional impact it had on me) from the onset of when his symptoms appeared because it caused us to lose a few apartments, my job, and forced us to move back to our home state. We lost everything we owned while he was in a psychosis state. During that time, he was rushed to the emergency room a couple times, verbal... keep reading on reddit ➡
First off I am not saying criticisms of the new trek series are not valid in anyway as, whilst I have enjoyed them, everyone is entitled to a viewpoint (and hopefully any comments on this post can be carefully considered responses not an endless argument as to who is right...).
What I was wondering in terms of the optimism of older shows versus the new treks was whether it isn't a case of the future being 'darker' in the latest series but rather that previously (certainly with TNG and TOS) you are seeing things from the point of view of a flagship vessel staffed with the best of Starfleet during peacetime and from this perspective things probably look a lot brighter.
Once you move away from this you encounter what could be described as a more realistic situation. Whilst the federation has a post-scarcity society and poverty is eradicated there are still going to be issues. For example, battles still need to be fought against hostile races/factions which is likely to have a mental... keep reading on reddit ➡
I’ve been working on some other stuff the last couple of days, but I’ve got this design ready for you all.
I know Discovery can be quite a divisive topic amongst Star Trek fans, but for those who like the show (or at least the ship), I hope you like it.
I’m conscious of not wanting to spam posts here, so I’ll likely leave a few days between posts, but post two at a time. I’ve also started looking into making some 1920x1080 versions so they can be used as desktop backgrounds. 🖖
These are the standalone discovery modes of the two most recent Assassin's Creed games. They are more "experiences" than games in their own right, but they should be interesting for anyone into ancient history.
The Mormon Church is not true
Mormonism is insignificant
Ambiguity is fine, I don't need answers to everything
I am not elect, I don't have to look down on people or try to save them
There is no meaning of life, I have to give my own life meaning.
It has made my life so much better, more truthful, more authentic and more enjoyable, especially the little things.
What are some of your discoveries and how have they impacted you?
In 1961 archaeologists uncovered a stone with Latin inscription that read:
>Ponitius Pilatus, prefect of Judea
Pilate is mentioned in the Gospel accounts on several occasions, such as in John 18:29:
>Pilate then went out to them and said, "What accusations do you bring against this Man?'.
This verifies the statement that Pilate was prefect of Judea and confirms his existence, as said in The Bible.
In 2 Chronicles 32:30,
>This same Hezekiah also stopped the water outlet of Upper Gihon, and brought the water by tunnel to the west side of the City of David.
It makes sense that if a biblical king built a tunnel under Jerusalem then we would be able to find it, and that is exactly the case.
Hezekiah's Tunnel has been found and is now a famous tourist attraction in Jerusalem.
In 1830, a man called Robert Taylor uncovered a 15-inch tall clay cylinder with 500 lines of text. The cylinder says that it... keep reading on reddit ➡
Like many, I went into university knowing everything, and left knowing nothing. And haven´t learned much since then. What cool new things am I ignorant about?
Growing up these chancels were my favorite. A place to learn about the world,science, history and nature. Now the majority of it all is reality tv crap. None of the stuff there is educational just drivel. Why is history channel even a thing anymore? Change the station name because nearly every show has little to do with any history. Swamp people? Pawn Stars? What does either show have to do with history???
Sigh, I use to watch these channels when I got home from school because I was fascinated by the world around me. I actually paid a fee just to access the history channel vaults of old documentaries they used to have. There use to be a time when these channels would feed the mind knowledge, now all they do is feed the mind junk food...sigh again..
Before my daughter was conceived I had repeated dreams of a blonde haired girl standing in a field next to a farm house waving to me. At the time, and until recently, I thought it was a sign our first born was to be a girl. And it was. And she has the same blonde hair and smile. And as she grows I’ve realized she looks almost just like me. I started taking meditation seriously just within the last month. This girl visits me often. Today I realized that girl is me. She is my soul, my undhindered self, full of joy and kindness before all of the abuse and hurt. And she’s reaching out to me. To be loved. To reconnect. To forgive and move on and live in joy and content with her. And it’s floored me and moved me and brought me to many tears.
I used to think it was only grass, just a blunt, just an organic medicine that was so acceptable in our culture as being ok.
I used to think that I wasn’t addicted to feeling stoned, for 21 years I felt that I was simply cutting the edge 16 hours a day
I used to think that I was super functional with just a little vape pen and I was super available to others
I used to think that marijuana wasn’t any sort of gateway drug to anything else, how could it be it’s just weed right. I got this under control
I used to think I had my life under control, family, house, kids, job
I used to think that I was truly happy when I was stoned.
Well I will be honest, that was simply the illusion that my addiction to marijuana was creating.
The reality, for myself, is that at some point of my stoner journey, weed wasn’t able to cover up all my emotional dilemmas anymore. It took 21 years but it happened oh man did it happen!

Hey just thought I mention something I just found out after my first game.
The challenge says 15 kills in a match 200 times
This does not mean you need to play 200 matches If you get 30 kills with that gun in 1 game that’s 2/200 45 kills in 1 game would be 3/200 etc etc
So this challenge actually isn’t too difficult on shipment (for some gun)
Edit: tested again for further proof because people didn’t believe me
Went into a game of shipment with 2/150 on my shotgun Got 30 kills and stopped using that gun Checked after the game and I was on 4/150 for progress
In the crisis of the irrationals, they straight up kill a dude over math and the fact that this is considered the "first crisis" got me interested in what else is comparable to that situation throughout history. However, in his book, he never mentions any other crisis. I tried googling it, but I couldn't find anything except for another article referring to it as "the crisis of the irrationals." Does anyone with a background on math history know what Hawking is referring to? Also, just in general, what are some other weird crazy moments in math history like this?
I just started watching Disco but so far the best part of the show is Tilly (and possibly Stamets)
This video game mode has become an extremely entertaining, engaging, and fun resource for learning about the real history of the world. All 3 of my daughters, aged 3 (Pre-Kindergarten), aged 8 (3rd grade), aged 13 (7th grade), are IN LOVE with having the ability to free roam an entire section of a continent that’s full of life and knowledge. My family sits around for hours watching and listening to the dialogue. They literally wake up for our home school sessions super excited to start our history lesson! And they retain the knowledge they learn from the Virtual Tours and Daily Life so much better than the sometimes-ultra-dry documentaries that schools sometimes force you to watch.
We’re going through AC Origins and AC Odyssey currently, but they’re especially loving Odyssey’s Discovery Tour — and I can understand why. Odyssey’s Discovery Tour is a little more evolved than Origins as you have actual Quizzes you can take with your Tour Guide and it makes it feel more immersive and sati... keep reading on reddit ➡
Been lecturing my cat about Deleuze the whole morning while prepping for entrance exams.... he's a good listener.
That's when the abyss blinked.
In this article published by the Daily Star, scientists claim to have discovered a universe in which time runs backwards from ours. Do you guys think that this could be where we travel to when we project or have an OBE?
EDIT: I just want to disclaim that I myself am still skeptic about the subject. When i linked the article, it was PURELY for informational purposes so that you can read about it yourself if you didn’t know about it before. It just happened to be the first article that appeared about the subject when i first read about it. With that being said, there is NO NEED to make harsh comments saying that I am basically stupid for believing an article like this. AS THE TITLE STATES THIS IS A DISCUSSION POST, meaning you can either agree or disagree with the topic. It does not mean you need to start an argument about it, i just wanted to see what everyone’s response would be.
Right now, it feels like my whole world is collapsing around me. I never thought I would find myself in this situation, but here I am.
I (42m) have been dating my girlfriend (40f)for about a year and a half. In that time, we've had some rocky moments but we've always managed to talk them out and come out stronger. Communication was always key and I was led to believe that things were fine.
Prior to the whole pandemic, we had made plans to finally move in together and I was just waiting for my next paycheck to come so I could finally put a deposit down on a place where the two of us could make a new home.
This past Saturday, I went to visit her to make sure she was doing ok (she recently lost her job) and to make sure that she was stocked up on groceries for the next few weeks because I didn't know when we would see each other again.
Well - I didn't expect the day to turn out the way it did.
Early in the afternoon, she ended up having a medical emergency. Incredibly scary and tra... keep reading on reddit ➡
So I can get a bit tilted from time to time. Sometimes I'll even fire off an attack message if the enemy team is being obnoxious with bags and emotes, especially if the teams are obviously imbalanced or even if we had a quitter. But recently I've started to use a new strat. I just type gg, and the craziest thing happened, most of them just apologize. Turns out baggers aren't universally complete asshole scums of the earth, most of them just aren't constantly thinking about the person on the other side and are just letting off steam. Try this strat out and I guarantee you will tilt less and regain a little faith in humanity in the process.
