It hurts that people underestimate my loss

On Wednesday, my parrot, Guus passed away. He was handicapped,27 and slept on me all day, potty trained. He talked to me whenever i needed and knew what he wanted, actually asking for walnuts at times.

He had cancer and was unexpectedly euthanised after i stayed up with him the entire night making sure he was nice and comfortable. I've had Guus for years and he helped me through my depression and protected me from toxic relatives. At the end of a rough day, i always relaxed with him cuddling with me.

I'm an examn student, and a lot is expected of me, but my mentor wants me to come to school on Monday, while losing Guus felt like losing a big part of myself. I feel like his loss is underestimated or somehow seen as less valid because he was a parrot.

I just miss my baby boy so much.. 1993-2021

here's a photo of my beautiful boy πŸ’š

Fuck you whoever reported his photos as spam :(

Update: Seriously? Report his photos again? I cherish these photos i have with him and to see people reporting them is heartbreaking. Why would you do this to a person?

The transformation of Rambo from broken veteran to unstoppable killing machine is a real cultural loss.

There really isn’t a more idiotic devolution of a character in modern popular culture than that of Rambo. If you haven’t seen the first film, First Blood, it’s a quite cynical and anti-military movie. Rambo isn’t a psychotic nationalist, he’s a broken machine. He was made to be an indestructible soldier by an uncaring military at the cost of his humanity. He’s a character so good at violence it scares him, and the only person he actually kills in the first film is both in self defense and largely on accident. It’s not even an action film, it’s a drama about veterans who cannot re-enter society after a meaningless war. The climax of the film isn’t Rambo killing, but sobbing about how horrifying his experiences were.

Then, in the second film, we get a neck shattering 180 into full on Ronald Reagan revisionism of the war in Vietnam. Rambo 2 perpetuates several popular and resilient myths about the Vietnam War, such as that American POWs were still there after the war and that the war would have been won by Americans of only we (the American people) had allowed them to win.

To say Rambo 2 is cultural vandalism would be putting it mildly. It’s a cinematic tragedy. They took a poignant anti war film and made it into a jingoistic Cold War fantasy.

The MVP candidate balled out for the Nuggets yet again. He's had to carry big-time in this game, especially due to poor shooting performances from Porter Jr (2/10) and Will Barton (4/12) and the absence of Jamal Murray. In addition, despite playing over 41 minutes he had just 1 turnover and two fouls. Despite his big night, the Nuggets fall to the Kings 119-114. They sit at 12-10 on the season

ULPT Request: dynamics of β€œloss prevention” in a grocery store?

I live in a newly gentrified area. I’ve been shopping at the same grocery store for almost a decade. In the last few months they’ve OBVIOUSLY recruited a loss prevention company. I’ve seen them confront people. I’ve seen them run people out. Do they think I don’t know what they look like?

Anyways, my trips are usually pretty light so I bring one canvas tote with me and fill it (rather than a basket because covid). Then I use the self checkout. I’ve started to notice the attention I bring to myself and it annoys the shit out of me. IM HERE TWICE A WEEK.

The dude following me, staring at the soft drinks like a scientist that doesn’t know how to read. The other dude that seemingly lives at the end of the butcher counter... I’m over here budgeting, trying to decide if I can spring for the modelo instead of the coors. And this dude is huddled up with the lunchables and processed meats, side-eyeing me like I just broke up with his hot dog of a little sister.

All of the employees and managers know who I am and we’re typically on a first name basis. But If these guys are going to be so aggressive, I’d like to mess with them a bit.

Edit: some of you seem to be pretty offended by this. Just for clarity I’ll add: These guys don’t hate their job. I think they genuinely enjoy it. A bunch of frat type guys (for lack of a better term) in tank tops and backwards hats that say things like β€œfuck yeah” and β€œgot his ass” whenever they catch someone. Followed up with some bro hugs. First time I saw them in action, I went straight to security in the front to let them know there were some guys that genuinely looked like they were going to jump a kid. He giggled and whispered β€œloss prevention”. Went back to my shopping and they were celebrating. My girlfriend came home the other day and said a guy was following her through the store, crouching down and looking at her from around corners. Freaked her out enough that after ten minutes she yelled β€œcan I help you!?”. He came out from behind the aisle and apologized and walked away. They’re literally so blatant and come off like they’re trying to intimidate rather than prevent loss. Go to a Walmart and try to pick out who’s LP. You generally can’t. Come to this grocery store, and you’ll know instantly, because it’ll be one of two guys that have been in every aisle with you. No basket, no cart.

Autist Rich Asian: Ape bought $10M of GME near its peak ($8M Loss)

🦍 Ape bought $10M worth of GME near the peak of its Reddit-hype, the position is now worth $2M

🦍 Ape also bought $1M in AMC and $1M in Silver

Article (trimmed):

Sun, the 30 year-old entrepreneur who bought $10 million worth of GameStop Corp. at the height of its Reddit-fueled rally, is predicting a paradigm shift in investing as younger people swarm into financial assets.

Sun said he’s prepared to hold onto his GameStop shares that he purchased near the highs late last month πŸ’ŽπŸ– in an effort to tap into the adrenaline-charged rush that lured retail investors into so-called meme stocks. He also bought $1 million in AMC Entertainment Holdings Inc. and a further $1 million in silver. The GameStop position is now worth just $2 million, Sun said.

β€œI think I’m going to hold. Even if I lose money on the GME stock, I still believe this is a paradigm shift,” Sun said in an interview with Bloomberg Television. β€œIn the past we all followed the advice from the financial analysts, and these days people are going to make their own decisions.”

TL;DR: Buy high never sell πŸ’ŽπŸ–πŸ¦

The Real Loss was WSB

I have always been a lurker and sometimes interacted on WSB in the comments. I joined the community late 2018 and surprisingly learned a lot about trades and investing through others gains (mostly failures) or discussions in the comments. When the GME hype train started, I hopped on late. Lost around 1.3k which is a decent amount of money to me, but nothing I needed. It was a risk I was well aware of. I’m still holding those positions; mostly because I have nothing left to lose to keep the positions. I’m cool with it. And if things do pop then great! But my problem is the real loss I have experienced. That was the loss of wallstreetbets. My favorite subreddit gained millions and even before the shitstorm I knew it would never be the same. Now I feel like a wanderer without a home. I remembered this subreddit that I would sometimes frequent, and noticed it does not appear you folks have been high jacked. I honestly hope to find a community like wsb again. Because it looks like I’ll be forced to walk away. Just needed a place to vent and it looks like a lot of you are too. I’m still an autist that loves a good YOLO. I hope I can find a new home with brethren who feel the same.

Edit: The account I am using now was not the original account I joined WSB on. But a few of my comments from my current account are still there before the madness took hold.

[Webcomics] From rise to loss: the story of Ctrl+Alt+Del (CAD)

Ctrl+Alt+Delete may be one of the most iconic internet comics of the 2000s. It represents the worst of mid 2000s gaming humor and the comic still lives on current day through memes. So today, I thought it would be fun to dig into the rabbithole that is Ctrl+Alt+Delete.

Penny Arcade and the beginning of Ctrl+Alt+Del

In 1998 the webcomic Penny Arcade was born. It was a gag comic about video games in which the characters would make jokes about video games. Each comic often had only 3 panels, so the creators could pump out a lot of comics regularly. Penny Arcade became an internet sensation quickly. Online content about gaming was very sparse in the early ages of the internet, so a comic entirely dedicated to video game jokes was such a cool novelty it became a cash cow. Penny Arcade probably wasn’t the first gaming comic of its kind, but it was the first to get really popular. Penny Arcade began making tons of money from ad-revenue and even Merchandise.

Naturally, with such a simple concept that seemed every single soul with a pencil could do, copy-cats of Penny Arcade started to appear everywhere, and on October 23 2002, the first comic of Ctrl+Alt+Del was created by Tim Buckley. Just like Penny Arcade, it was a gag comic about video games. And just like Penny Arcade, it caught lots of attention, but not always for the right reasons.

Story and Criticism

Ctrl+Alt+Delete revolves around Ethan, a videogame-fanatic, and his roommate Lucas, the voice of reason in the comic. Ethan strangely looks like how Tim Buckley draws himself, so it was obvious that Ethan was a self-insert. And that was the least of the criticisms the author got.

Like I said, online content about gaming was just a novelty in the 2000s. Gaming webcomics were in that context even cooler. So with gaming webcomics in its early days, they had very low standards for comedy. Ctrl+Alt+Del was no exception to this. If you now check any Ctrl+Alt+Del comic made in the 2000s you would probably scratch your head and question yourself how anyone could find this funny. Lots of overused gaming jokes, lots of jokes which punchline was just violence, some pages didn’t even have jokes and had the main protagonist Ethan complain about how everyone was stupid and not real gamers.

As you may have guessed, Ethan got lots of criticisms as a character. Ethan was wild, spiteful and did everything in his power to defend video games. Every single issue Ethan came across was r

We're not the bad guys. Bad guys are the ones who would crash the market rather than taking the loss. Their plan.

Here's what they might do this week. Notice how Goldman Sachs are saying that GME might crash the market? They are going to do it and scare us into selling GME. At the same time blaming us for the crash to get public support for more government regulations against us!

I'm a pretty smart ape and that's what I would do.

Notice how GME has been going against SPY lately? It might reverse to tank all together this week when they sell their long positions and short GME at the same time. But have no fear fellow apes. Just hold onto that bananananana and GME will eventually come back up. In shorting even more they are incurring a much higher interest day after day.

I would just ignore the market this week and do something fun to relax until you hear about the squeeze has squoeze.

I am appalled at what took place yesterday at a family gathering, and quite honestly humiliated. People go to the extremes to discourage weight loss..

Some background: my whole family is overweight. My grandpa is a diabetic, my mom had to have a gastric sleeve (but put most of the weight back on), etc. I got pretty heavy for my height and age (5’4, 200lbs) and so I’ve been going to the gym now for 2 years and I’ve lost down to 160lbs. I’m still not where I want to be, as my normal weight before I gained was 145lbs. So that’s where I want to get back to.

What happened:

My great aunt was discussing her own attempt at losing weight and how much more she needed to lose, and I then just in conversation told her I needed to lose around that same amount, too.

As soon as I said this my grandfather started yelling at me, saying β€œYOU ARE TOO SKINNY YOU HAVE TO STOP WITH THE WEIGHT LOSS. YOU MUST NOT BE EATING, YOU LOOK PALE AND SICKLY” and I said β€œI’m not even near the healthy weight range for my age and height yet...??” Then he made me announce my weight in front of everyone.. β€œ160 pounds..” then on top of that they didn’t believe me.

They actually went and got the scale and set it down and they gathered around me to watch me weigh myself (I weighed in at 165 actually) and they couldn’t believe it. Basically still saying that I shouldn’t continue to lose weight, I’m β€œlarge framed” and β€œbig boned” and I need to stay that way, etc. it was so embarrassing and exhausting. I kinda just needed somewhere to tell this story, so I’m sorry for the rant.

Bottom line is, people will go to the absolute extremes to keep you from succeeding. Your success makes them uncomfortable because it shows them what is possible for themselves- and what they’re not working towards.. don’t let them get under your skin, it’s really hard not to but keep pushing towards your goals and dreams.

EDIT: WOW you guys!!! I didn’t expect this to blow up but here we are! Thank you so much for all your awards and uplifting comments!!! There’s no way I’ll be able to respond to everyone- but I really appreciate all of your support and kind words! They’ve definitely motivated me even more to get to my goals regardless of their negativity. Thank you <3
