So with Chikara dead, CZW barely in existence, and ROH owned by a multi-billion dollar company, I think it's safe to say the era I associate with the term "indy wrestling" is very much dead
That's all I really got. The era of dvds, high school gyms, and veteran halls, has come and gone.
I'm old now and will start looking into which retirement homes best suit my needs
So what are your favorite moments from the now "old school" era of indy wrestling?

Electronics that blink even when off are the bane of my existence
Seriously, why put a light that blinks on a TV that still blinks when off? Will never be able to sleep with that catching my attention.
Went into my room to do something, the monitor's light blinked and pulled my attention immediately forgot what I was doing.
Or when I watch a show on that TV, every time it blinks it pulls my attention from the show to the blink and then I forget what just happened in the show.
Everyone I tell this says "I'm being over dramatic, just ignore the light". Ah why didn't I think of that, oh wait I literally can't do that...
Well guess I'm going to add tape to the new flat TV, and hope flatmates don't complain.

WHO admits China never reported the existence of coronavirus outbreak
The WHO changed the official timeline on their website removing the info about China reporting "a cluster of cases of pneumonia in Wuhan":
The original timeline says:
>31 Dec 2019
>Wuhan Municipal Health Commission, China, reported a cluster of cases of pneumonia in Wuhan, Hubei Province. A novel coronavirus was eventually identified.
But the updated version says:
>31 Dec 2019
>WHO’s Country Office in the People’s Republic of China picked up a media statement by the Wuhan Municipal Health Commission from their website on cases of ‘viral pneumonia’ in Wuhan, People’s Republic of China.
So the WHO likely wasn’t directly informed by the Chinese government.

If God's existence were evident by nature's (apparent) design, we wouldn't need prophets and holy texts.
I've heard the theistic argument from "nature's design" which is basically just "galaxies and stuff look so rad like they must have been made by some intelligent being". Every atheist has heard some form of that at some point. But if that were true, if knowing God exists were as easy as looking up at night and being awed by the stars, why would we need religion to tell us to believe in God at all? Why would we need prophets, holy people, priests, shamans, etc., to spread the word of God to people? And then why have there been people who didn't believe in God? We all look at nature in wonder at some point. Why is that not sufficient for God to communicate to us? His whole cosmos was made just to tell is he exists and most people won't understand he exists unless some missionary tells them. Interesting.
They are so triggered by the existence of queer people.

Onions are literally the worst food in existence
They're just so disgusting when they're scattered all through my food and whenever I take a bite they're always that crunch that contradicts the "feel" of the rest of the meal. For instance, the onions in a Miccy D's cheeseburger. The meat, cheese, and bun are all easy to chew and your teeth just glide through them. And then you get too a collection of onions and that whole feeling is disrupted by crunches. Not too mention the people at Miccy D's often give me onions anyway even when I specifically tell them no onions. They're also slimy and for some reason people love to dump them all over their food in small chunks so that it's hard to take them out.
Did I mention that they make you cry when cut? If that isn't a sign that it doesn't want to be eaten I don't know what is.
Edit: Lol so a lot of people in the comments are saying that I just haven't had onions that were cooked right(since I only used McDonald's as an example). Well let me just say that I've been served food from many

We don’t need more mental health resources - we need a society that values human existence and basic needs rather than productivity and consumption.
This post is referencing the US. While I think that many populations and communities are marginalized and not aware of the resources that are available to them (if there are), we need to realign ourselves with a balance between the two for a healthy existence.
Many people are stressed out, barely able to make ends meet, drowning in debt, are overworked &amp; underpaid, expected to know everything, ruled by a government that only cares for the rich, etc. Why would a life be worth living if the society you’re in constantly drags you into the ground?
Edit for context: I’ve suffered from depression and am a survivor from suicide
Edit 2: title is poor wording, I do think that mental health resources are important, I just think that targeting the source of the problem for many would be a better step. Those with mental issues caused by genetics or hormones should absolutely have access to resources.

As a black man, I’ve finally come to the conclusion that my very existence is just forced diversity.
All this time, I was taught that blacks have a long history of being oppressed that still continues today. I was taught that having black people in forms of media was a good thing because it’s representation for blacks.
That all changed on one fateful day. One day, while I was living my SJW life, I overheard someone complaining about a black Spider-Man. I thought, What? Black Spider-Man? Never heard of that before. Then, I Googled “black spiderman” and found out about miles morales. But, I also found out about something else: the complaints about this Spider-Man because he was black.
This is how I learned about forced diversity.
I’ve seen people saying “if black people aren’t superior to white people, then why not make him white?” When I heard the same thing being said over and over again, I began to apply this logic to real life. If all races are equal, why isn’t everyone white? Why am I not white?
And that was when I realized,

Biological existence is a dictatorship - all living organisms are fundamentally slaves
We are also economic slaves to money and work. Submit to labor in exchange for a paycheck or starve to death on the street - due to having no purchasing power and thus (in this current system) no right to life. (Most people in the modern world are not able to 'go live in the woods' and make that function they lack those skills so it is a gun to the head scenario with no alternatives for the vast majority)
And even if you are willing to work for money to pay for rent and food - but are unable to obtain employment you will starve to death on the street, despite being willing to slave away to maintain your futile temporary existence.
You may indeed even be one of those rare people who genuinely enjoys your job/work/career. That does not however change the fact that you still do HAVE to do it. And you will starve on the streets if you did not do it, or found some other work in exchange for a paycheck in case you quit the current occupation to substitute in some other source of monetary i

a non-transphobic defense of the existence of the late r/GenderCritical subreddit (the necessity of seeing motherhood as a class)
I want to first assert that I am not a radfem TERF. Before you judge my politics, let me take you through what I believe about gender.
- There is no gender essentialism. Humans are like animals. We do not have souls. We do not have a gender inside of us. I am a woman but I don't 'feel like a woman' inside me. In fact, at some point I used to identify publicly as non-binary because I thought it was a fact of reality that everyone was empty of this thing called 'gender' inside of us. I subscribed to anti-humanist ideas.
- Corollary: I reject any notion of a Cartesian spirit or soul or spiritual gender as non-materialist.
- Gender is expressed through sex and sexuality. You are born a certain sex and with a sexuality that is both innate (gay or straight) but also capable of developing or changing during pubescence based on experiences that shape your ego (fetishes). In nature, it makes sense for animals to change their appearance (sex) to achieve sexual gratification (

I have learned the secrets of existence... I think. A DMT entity explained to me what existence is.
Do I believe what I experienced was real? I don't know... it was too real.
I've been smoking DMT the past few days and today I had a trip that blew my mind. My trip was... beautiful, amazing, wild, and mind blowing.
I was vaping it and kept taking hits. My hearing kept ringing louder and louder. My vision was blurring with my eyes open and my room was beginning to rip apart and I closed my eyes and ended up in the "waiting room." Time froze, became meaningless. My breath stopped, my heart stopped. It felt eternal between each breath/heart beat. I was terrified.
I was tripping maybe 10 minutes total but it felt like many hours; including eternal moments. I saw the 4th+ dimension and it was beyond beautiful. Beautiful impossible geometry of golds, silvers, and all of the colors but more intense than anyone can imagine. I became my "original self" of consciousness in this new realm. I was still attached to reality to a degree and had my ego slightly intact. I began to see this...

If I ever needed a reason to dislike religion more than I already do, this whole mess about transgender rights is only adding to that. As a trans person I hate the fact people want to erase me out of existence for their shitty beliefs.
I’ve been talking with a few people about this, particularly Americans, and whilst they’ve been more than in agreement with me that LGBT rights should be protected, several people have also tried to defend the religious side in all of this, saying things like ‘well there’s a lot of religious people who would support you’ or ‘not all religions hate trans people’ or something along those lines.
As far as I’m concerned, defending religion full stop has led to all of this. Most religious dogma is so vague that you can essentially make any argument you want and ‘justify’ it, even if it means playing all sorts of mind games and making words jump through hoops. Any religion’s support for the LGBT community has been a recent innovation, following centuries of persecution, denial of recognition and even having people killed, and usually consists of vague ‘well that doesn’t count because reasons’ bullcrap when uncomfortable verses like in Leviticus come up, or even outright cherry-picking or i

Anti kalam or Nosmological argument against god existence.
So I thought of this kalam based argument wrote it down and put a silly name on it, and I'm not sure if I'm commiting some fallacy here so I want you to tell me if this fails and why.
- everything that exists began existing
- god did not begin existing
- god does not exist
I can see objections to 1 because we don't know if everything that exist had a begining of existence, but objecting to 1 would make the original kalam fail (right?).
2 is something most theists would agree on(uncreated,uncaused, eternal)
and 3 follows from the previous premises.
what am I missing?
Edit: I have seen how the argument is unsound, but I think we can perfect it, not to show if god exists or doesn't but to show people convinced of the kalam why it doesn't really work.
