Man’s search for meaning - Viktor Frankl.
There’s two parts of the book, the first one is about Frankl’s experience in as a prisoner in a Nazi concentration camp. Frank who’s an educated psychiatrist, also tells the reader about the horrific things he saw, and how he observed people and how they were trying to cope with seemingly impossible obstacles. Frankl’ theorized that people whom find meaning in their suffering, can best cope with the horrifying situation they’re in. Frankl himself found strength in one day meeting his wife again, which made him continue on his journey, through the horrors of a Nazi concentration camp.
The first part gives insight into how people in the most dire situations tried to find a way to ‘move forward’ even when it seemed as all was lost.
The second part of the book is dedicated to logotherapy - one which he himself developed. Logotherapy is based on the concept that the biggest motivator in life is finding a sense of purpose and meaning. Thus, we have freedom in finding meaning in what we as humans do and experience, and that life has meaning under all circumstances.
Man’s search for meaning might be my favorite book. It’s short - about 150 pages, it’s absolutely horrific, melancholic and sends chills down your spine. It’s an amazing book, I’ve read it 2 times now, the philosophical rhetoric that finding a sense of purpose, is a key to moving forward has really stuck with me.
Great read, would recommend to anyone.
Sometimes when things get too much for me, I will just job hunt for like an hour, without any actual intention of applying anywhere else. Then I calm down and continue working :D. I feel silly, but the reminider that there are other jobs out there really brings me comfort, I don't know..
EDIT: Hey, thanks for the awards, but really save your money for something else, or donate!
Happy Tuesday redditors. It’s that time again—we’ve got new features, updates, and even a sneak peek of what we’re working on for Reddit search.
Big improvements for Reddit search are on the way, and we want your help
As was announced in r/changelog, we’re focusing on creating a better search experience this year by more than doubling the number of people working on improving search and creating an entirely new team solely devoted to search experiences.
Over the past few months, the Search team has been creating a search experience that can support the millions of posts, communities, and people that make up the Reddit platform (aka working on infrastructure). Now that the foundation is in place, the next phase is improving search in ways that deliver better results and help redditors find the content they’re looking for faster.
This will include:
But this list is incomplete… what else should be on it? To get to a truly effective search experience, we’d like to hear more from redditors. Take this quick survey to let us know what you think of Reddit search, what is and isn’t working for you, and how you think we can make it better.
Helping new moderators set up their communities
Creating a new community can be tricky and confusing for first-time moderators, so we’ve created some step-by-step tips that help new moderators set up and start to grow their communities. The steps include things like adding a welcome message, making a sticky post, or sharing your community. Steps are by no means requirements to create and mod a community, but provide brand new mo
It's a premium tab, most of us paid $15 for it and basic functionality such as search should have been working properly since the tab was introduced.
Currently if I want to find all maps with delirium on them I have to type "delirium" and click every single map in every single tier that I want, because searching only works if the specific tab is cached or whatever.
EDIT: This applies to Elder guardian maps too.
I’m Brian Greene, professor of physics and mathematics at Columbia University and co-founder of the World Science Festival. My latest book, UNTIL THE END OF TIME (out in paperback this week), is an exploration of the cosmos and our quest to find meaning in the face of this vast expanse. AMA!
Hi Everyone--thanks for the great questions. I have to sign off now, but feel free to ask more questions of me on twitter (@bgreene) and sign up for the World Science Festival newsletter (its free) to learn of a great many science programs we will be releasing over the coming months.
Help them build up ideas for new inventory. You better believe they are tracking and recording every search through their website. It could also help them innovate new products that gamers want but no one / few people are making. You want an officially licensed gaming blanket? How about some of those LED tiles people put all over their walls? Mountain Dew flavored Doritos?? Cool Ranch flavored Mtn Dew??
My wife and I have been searching for a property in Western Sydney since the start of this year and have been outbid by someone else in 4 other properties that we liked. We were getting frustrated and FOMO was very real.
Last week, as usual, we went to a Saturday open house. It was a 1980s built, well maintained 550sqmts house in the not so great side of Quakers Hill. We had a quick chat with the neighbours, The Karen next door acted as if we asked her property for free. On the other side was a nice family, and they said they had a break and entry last year but otherwise there is nothing wrong. We initially offered 925k and went up to 940k, which was accepted by the Real estate agent. Surprisingly, we weren't elated, nor happy. The break and entry and overall feel of the community was weighing in. We were just buying the house because we don't have one.
The real estate agent asked us to sign the contract at 5.30 the same day. I called my mortgage broker to ask him his opinion. He told us not to sign the document till he or a solicitor reviews the contract. I agreed and told the REA that I can sign the contract on Monday. The REA said that until the contract is signed, the house wasn't ours and it was open for negotiations.
Later that day, my Solicitor gave a green signal and sent a mail to the REA for some details. The REA sent me a message saying that the house was sold to some one else who was ready to sign the contract that day.
Instead of feeling sad or dejected, we were very happy to lose the property. The FOMO and stress is gone. I feel as if a massive weight on our shoulders has been lifted.

I grew up in the horror "hay day" if you will '75-'94. If you're young and want to see how real horror was made back in the day these documentaries are awesome. These are like watching Fangoria and Gorezone articles come to life. 4+ hours each and I never once checked my phone.
