OP, who rakes in the dough doing online tutoring, says he decided to quit his job and harvest cilantro for a living. Some praise him for trying to gain perspective. Some say he's just doing poverty tourism in order to promote his blog.

Context: OP is a former lawyer and online tutor who claims to make 6 figures while traveling. After getting bored of lawyering and tutoring, OP decided to harvest cilantro to experience 'back breaking work'. He decides to do an AMA. Oh yeah, and OP just happens to have a blog to promote his journey.

If you look at his post history, one of his most recent submissions is asking about using the website "medium" to make money. He describes how he wants to transition to that full time from what his gig back then was. Medium and Substack are basically websites in the exact same business: monetizing articles and blogs. CatoTheFi is not working the fields for ethical reasons. He's trying to establish a lifestyle blog and ethics is one of the aspects of the brand he wants to associate with it. He isn't unsure about what he wants to do with his life. He knows what he wants to do with his life, and that is continue his current lifestyle and transition to writing about all the wonderful things he gets to do with the money his subscribers help him make.

I'm truly mind boggled at the number of people who are snarky and negative for no apparent reason. (No, I'm not new to Reddit.

Your privilege showing and is honestly sickening...going from white collar to blue collar just to see what it feels like? Fuck off bro

Why can’t you just harvest cilantro without documenting it? Seems like a douchebag thing to do

Did you ever consider doing something that's actually beneficial for the world, like donating most of your salary to an efficient charity? Buying mosquito nets saves about one life per $3500. Assuming you make $30k/year now and were making $100k before, you could be saving 20 lives per year instead of patting yourself on the back for harvesting cilantro.

Can we please stop saying that so-and-so is "gonna rake in Japan".

"He's gonna rake in Japan"

It's one of my biggest pet peeves on this sub. Every time news breaks that so and so fringe big-leaguer has signed in with a NPB team. The comment sections on the post always repeat the same phrase, β€œHe’s gonna rake in Japan”. Without fail, every time. With news that Eric Thames, Justin Smoak and now Rusney Castillo are going over there for next year, everyone seems to think that they’ll become the second coming of Randy Bass or Tuffy Rhodes, mainly because the circumstances are similar. Yes, MLB has a higher skill level than NPB, but the notion that you can just take a fringe MLB player, drop him into NPB and have him immediately transform into some kind of baseball god is both ignorant and ludicrous.

So, to prove my point, lets go over every player that has come over from MLB in the last 2 years, in no particular order:

Gerardo Parra (Tokyo Giants, 2020):

47 games, .267/.323/.404, 39 Hits, 4 Home Runs, 13 RBI.

Verdict:

Injured, sent down to the ni-gun, not re-signed. Did not rake. Failure.

Corey Spangenberg (Saitama Lions, 2020):

111 games, .268/.326/.482, 109 Hits, 15 Home Runs, 57 RBI

Verdict:

Didn’t rake but didn’t fail either. Played more games than Parra, didn’t get sent down to the minors. His defense and positional flexibility made him a near-everyday starter for the Lions. He didn’t quite live up to the man he was replacing, Shogo Akiyama, but he did well enough that the Lions seem intent on keeping him around. Minor success. Also fun fact, he has the longest last name (when spelled in Katakana) of any foreign player in NPB history, 9 characters. No wonder they shortened it to "Spangey" as fast as they did.

Adam Jones (Osaka Buffaloes, 2020):

87 games, .258/.331/.417, 78 Hits, 12 Home Runs, 43 RBI.

Verdict:

Was extremely streaky, did not adjust well to the NPB environment, had trouble connecting with his teammates, just seemed out of it most of the time. His occasional breaks irked management and the media, especially when Steven Moya came on to the scene. He still has one year to prove himself, but with Stephen Moya sticking around and Stefan Romero returning to the lineup, its shape up or ship out time for Jones.

Christian Villanueva (Tokyo Giants/Hokkaido Fighters, 2019-2020):

127 games, .222/.323/.351, 82 Hits, 12 Home Runs, 43 RBI.

Verdict:

Abject Failure. Spent a lot of his time up and down from the ni-gun, did not rake. Squandered two opportunities with two

##Pardon-palooza

President Trump pardoned his former national security adviser Michael Flynn on Wednesday, excusing him from charges of lying to the FBI in 2017. While Flynn’s flip-flop plea change and AG Barr’s intervention got the most news coverage, we should focus on the origin of the case itself: the lie. Flynn lied about his contacts with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak not to protect himself, but to protect Trump.

  • There was nothing illegal about talking to Kislyak before the new administration took control; Flynn had no liability. Trump’s murky history with Russia, backroom meetings, and deals for dirt on opponents put him at risk. In return for lying to protect him, Trump pardoned Flynn. Keep in mind, Michael Cohen has yet to receive a similar pardon (and likely will not, as he stopped lying for Trump.)

  • While he was never charged with acting as an unregistered foreign agent, Flynn’s role in a scheme to advance Turkey’s interests are arguably worse than lying to federal agents. In response to revelations that he was a paid asset of a foreign government while serving as National Security Advisor, Judge Emmett Sullivan declared: "Arguably, you sold your country out."

**The text of the pardon was released on Monday in DOJ court filing seeking to di

A warning: I was told not to rake my leaves. That was a mistake.

New Englander and first time homeowner here. Numerous articles and people told me leaves are great for the lawn, they decompose and feed the soil, etc. Unfortunately, I underestimated the importance of thorough mulching. Heavy, wet leaves have left patches of bare soil in my lawn. I ended up raking and blowing the rest off today. Not terrible, but certainly something I wish I appreciated in the fall.

After missing out on Lindor, Does everyone else hope the LGJ absolutely rakes this year?

After all the trade rumors saying he was a big part of the ask for Lindor and that many people in this sub were fine with him being traded (although most with the condition of an extension) I hope that we all are looking forward to him exploding and putting up crazy numbers for his 3 million or whatever his minuscule contract is.

I got downvoted a month or two ago when I said that I didn't think we should trade him for Lindor and it seems like by the end more people had that opinion as well. If he stays healthy he has the potential to hit 280-300, 360-380 on base and 30 HR. He also seems to be coming into his own on LF. He may not be the best defender but he certainly has a cannon of an arm and is still learning the position. I think he has the potential to be one of the best bang for buck contracts in the league.

I obviously hope we end up signing some big names, but even if we don't, next year has a great FA class and we will be one more year closer to truly contending. Letting the young guns grow for one more year may not be such a bad idea. On the flip side we may never be in this position to spend when others can't again.

Sorry I'm drunk and ranting.

Why do people rake leaves and pine needles to just throw them in a landfill?

I ask because I grew up in a desert, and I truly don’t understand why this is a thing. Isn’t organic matter and debris better for soil growth? I don’t understand the tradition of taking something natural/part of a natural process, putting it in a plastic bag, and having it hauled away to a landfill with different type of waste. If the climate is akin to growth of a deciduous tree, why would the soil not benefit from its leaves?

If it’s bad for your lawn, isn’t that just a sign that your lawn shouldn’t belong in this environment? Maybe this is my β€œgreen lawns don’t belong in the desert” side coming out here....

The tree on your property has been dropping leaves for decades, and yet suddenly those leaves are unhealthy for the ground from which it grows? I don’t get it.

Edit: wow thank y’all for flooding my inbox with interesting lawn/leaf facts. Never thought I’d be here...

"The Rake's Progress" TOTALLY blew my mind last night!

I've decided to spend a few weeks focusing on English-language operas. I usually watch 2-3 operas/week, and while I've watched a few English-language operas, obviously most of what I watch is in Italian, French, or German . "The Rake's Progress" by Stravinsky had been on my list for awhile, and I decided to check it out last night. I found a production on Medici from 2007 at Theatre de la Monnaie in Brussels.

As the title notes, I was blown away. First off, it was not at all what I expected. I'm a huge fan of Stravinsky's ballets, and was going in expecting something like that, but musically it was (almost) nothing like Petruchka or Rite of Spring. Many parts reminded me of Copland or Gershwin, and many other parts were straight Mozart-style recitatives, harpsichord and all, or very classically-flavored arias with acrobatic vocal runs. I read afterward that he intended a neo-classical style, which makes sense, though much of the harmony and orchestration was clearly 20th century. The characters were very compelling, with a small core cast and a few supporting roles, and the libretto was gorgeous and very emotionally resonant. The mix of humor and tragedy reminded me a bit of Ariadne auf Naxos, a personal favorite - though it is decidedly darker by the end.

Because it was a little under my radar, I'm guessing it may be under some of yours as well, but I highly, highly recommend it.

Questions about Osseric and Anomander Rake.

The wiki has Father Light and Vatha Urusander as Osserics Father. Which one is it? Also I've always wondered where Anomander Rake was when Scabandari betrayed Silchas Ruin. Did he not know Scabandari imprisoned him in the azath house? Also does Rake know his brother is back when he is freed from his prison. I know some of these may be RAFO but it's been years since I read the Malazan world. I am on Memories of Ice right now in my reread. Thank you!
