Seriously , I am sick of it . I have this one cousin and because of all the attention she gets she is starting to get really spoiled . Here is a scenario : me and the rest of my cousins watch o video on youtube , we all like it , except my cousin . We tell her that we can't just change a video because just one of us doesn't like it . We explain to her politely that we can't do that . She looks at us , turns away , and goes to our parents . Only when she gets there she starts crying other and complain about . (usually ) My mom comes in and tells us to let her pick the video . We tell her that she is the only one who wants it . What argument she comes up with ? "Well she is the youngest " like seriously ? I don't care if she is the youngest , she is still equal to us . And that goes in many ways . The exact same argument over and over again .
Edit : I also wanted to mention that the only person that can stop her it's my dad . If she starts crying and try to use his pity , he goes " Why are you crying when you know that crying won't give you what you want ? " That's when she shuts up . I kind of liking the fact that one of the adults can actually make her a better person . Too bad one is not enough .
Why , just why ? Did this happen to you , or I am the only one ?
Edit #2 : Apparently , there are also people in the comment section that had the complete opposite experience - the oldest or the middle child is the favorite . I am sorry to hear that too . I think that , in both cases , parents or the whole family shouldn't pick favorites . This shouldn't be normal .
Edit #3 : I've just got home from my dance classes and oh my God if this post didn't blew up . All I wanted to say is that , if you are the youngest that doesn't make you an a-hole . I've read people's comments and there are some people who had the opposite way - some of them worse than my case . At the end of the day , this is all just from my perspective , it doesn't speak real facts . I hope people who had a bad relationship with their parents get better . Your parents should NOT compare you or any of your siblings with each other . It isn't normal .
It was so simple and delicious! A quick mirepoix, a squirt of tomato paste, a teaspoon of sweet paprika, homemade bouillon, homemade tomato passata, a potato (cubed) salt, pepper, oregano and thyme and water to taste. I left it to simmer for about 30 mins, then I blended it. The result was hearty, smooth and creamy despite having no dairy at all. and it didn't taste at all like pasta sauce, which was my biggest fear.
What are your variants for the tomato soup? What herbs or flavour do you like to add?
Edit: rip my inbox! Also, I do not have access to any American cheese. Monterey, pepper jack, American cheese, I can't get it.
Quick note that I'm not religious nor a hardcore atheist. This is just a shower thought that keeps reoccurring in my mind.
In the bible it says "God is omniscient" (Psalm 139:1-6). He knows everything, including the future. God knew Adam and Eve would sin. If he created them and knew they would sin, why did he punish them? It wasn't even a small punishment so that they can gain a life lesson. He banished them from the garden and made childbirth incredibly painful for ALL women, not just Eve. It just seems like he set them up for failure? I searched for answers online but the only one that provided an answer other than "it's part of his master plan" is that he did this because God has to display his greatness - his glory and his wrath, and that cannot be seen without the fall of mankind. By that logic, God creates problems so that he can assert his dominance? Why does he have to show his greatness by making his beloved creations suffer? Can't he do it by showing Adam and Eve a super out-of-this-world magic trick?
Edit: I'm looking for insightful interpretations, maybe from people who are more familiar with religion? This is not for extreme atheists to use this as an opportunity to bash on religion. I am genuinely curious to see if there is perhaps a perspective I'm not seeing this in.
Edit 2: I'm getting some more responses like "There is no logical answer" and again, I am trying to see if I missed something from a religious point of view. I never said I was looking for a 2+2=4 kind of straightforward problem solver.
Just finished ‘and then there were none’. That has to be the most ingenious and best mystery book I’ve ever read. I have been sitting here for half an hour trying to compute what I just read. I cannot express in words how bloody amazing it was. You all must read it! Christie really is the queen of mystery. 🤯🤯🤯🤯😭😭😭😭
For those of you who aren’t aware, it is a mystery story where 10 strangers are invited to an island, on which they become stranded, and they start getting picked off one by one. I also thought it was so incredibly chilling, more so than most of her other books too. The way she wove the web of mystery, skullduggery and suspense was masterful. The nursery rhyme also added a sense of impending doom to myself as the reader. Really clever utilisation of dramatic irony. And the ending was just a punch to the balls! I am not surprised in the slightest that this is the highest selling mystery book of all time!
Edit: thank you all so much for the other recommendations. Once I’ve finished all the other books on my list - I’ve got 40 - I’ll get round to all these. They all sound amazing!
Edit 2: I’m so glad I convinced so many of you to pick the book up. I hope you all enjoy it and be sure to return to this post and leave your thoughts when you’re finished! However, I recommend starting on ‘The Murder of Roger Ackoryd’, if you haven’t read any Agatha Christie before - it’s a better introduction to her work. Then read ‘And Then There Were None’.
Edit 3: some people thought i included a spoiler when it wasn’t so to shut them up i’ve removed it. and also, to the trolls - shush.
Edit 4 (god I’m doing a lot of these 😅): thanks to those of you recommended the BBC/Charles Dance adaptation. It was good. I wish they had made it more true to the book, but it was still enjoyable viewing. Charles Dance was excellent. After you’ve finished the book, you ought to watch it. Felt that it wasn’t as chilling as the book, but that might just be because I know the ending lol.
She tried to protest, but his voice grew forbidding, “Mary, I will not take no for an answer.”
