Their government needs a god damn reality check. Constantly lying about everything with almost zero consequence. Arresting people from different nations for very vague reasons and not allowing them to leave. Trying to censor everything that makes them look negative.
Just cut them off. People might lose money, maybe it will start a war, but who cares. They need to be put in their place.
Background: I am not on good terms with my parents. My sister is highly narcissistic and both my parents enable her. Ever since I was small, I wasn't allowed to do anything better than my sister. If she got 60% in an exam, I am supposed to keep my score below 60%, even if I could score more than 90%.
I broke this rule during college entrance exams. I got into the top university in my country (I prepared for 2 years to achieve that). Even though my score was good my sister cried and threw a tantrum about how embarrassed she would feel if I went to a better college than her. So, I was forced to attend the subpar college she attended.
Now that I was finally away from home, I worked and saved up. I also did my best to prepare for campus job interviews. Right before I stared attending job interviews my father called to tell me that I cannot get a job until my sister does. This pissed me off to no extent. I ignored him. I landed an amazing job and moved to another state right after my co... keep reading on reddit ➡

Edit: Clarification for why I'm identifying 'leftists' here at the bottom.
I don't know if this is the correct place to post this. But the issue I am posting about pertains specifically to leftism and men, and I'm not sure where else a post like this would go. I hope posting this here is okay.
Recently, Blake Neff, a writer for Fox News host Tucker Carlson was outed as an online troll posting racist and misogynistic content under a pseudonym. You can read about the story here if you wish.
If you are familiar with this story and exist in left spaces online, you are probably already aware of how leftists have chosen to talk about this story. If you aren't, then this tweet and the replies/quote retweets are pretty representativ... keep reading on reddit ➡

Especially with recent events, I have been flat out accused of being racist for not showing my undying support towards BLM.
I was no where NEAR in the know enough to be able to make the decision to support BLM at the time, and after doing my research I have decided that I agree and support most of what they are doing.
People really need to be able to admit when they don’t know about an issue. Too many people are pressured into “picking a side” when they really have no idea what’s going on.
So I challenge you this, instead of supporting what the Internet, or your friends or your co-workers tell you to, do your research, and decide based on YOUR moral judgement system which side you support, or if you support bits of both sides, or neither.
My father (59M) and I were never really close in the early stages of my childhood. He was always “busy” in work, and had never taken proper care of me.
All of that burden had fallen onto my mother, who did the best she could to put me through school.
That all soon when to shit due to information about an affair with another woman, who is his current wife.
I have very little memory of my father and I having actual conversations past the age of 12, and I could count on one hand the amount of times he visited me.
He has never coddled me in my life, and missed all my major life events, graduations, birthdays, and my engagement.
Now my father had 2 kids with his now wife, one is (15F) and the other is (6M).
I’ve met these people only a few times, and have exchanged nothing but formalities.
Due to prior heart complications, and the years taking a toll on him, he’s currently at his last moments.
I was visiting him in the hospital a week prior, and he told me he wished for me to fu... keep reading on reddit ➡
Developers/publishers should agree to do this.
All they have to do is release source code for a dead game and they have a chance to make said dead game not an unknown IP anymore so the IP actually worth something again.
Seems like they are throwing IPs away by not allowing the community to do their support work for them.
Whats the rationale against this?
It’s not even because I get off on the intimacy of others (because it’s honestly not always the case). It’s just a very wholesome thing that I enjoy viewing and also imagining myself in. Intimacy is just beautiful and I wish I got to see more of it. There’s usually some of it in the amateur section but honestly...not enough. I don’t know how else to explain it but you guys get what I mean right?
The kind definition of aftercare is as follows:
In BDSM, aftercare is the period of time after a scene in which partners attend to one another's physical, emotional, and psychological needs. Typically, the dominant partner in the scene will be the one caring for the submissive partner or partners. BDSM scenes are often very intense, and can often be emotionally and psychologically draining. Physical injuries are also not uncommon during these scenes.
Edit 2: I don’t mean stuff like ASMR (although I’m open to more recs for it), I mean more visual stuff
My wife (let's call her Susan) and I have been married for 8 years. I've known her even before we were together, during which she was dating someone named Ken (obviously not a real name). We were all part of a choral group in our church.
The three of us were actually quite good friends and I genuinely thought Susan and Ken were going to get married/be together for a long time. It was a shock when Susan told me that they're no longer together. According to her, one day Ken just decided that he wanted to move interstate. When asked why, he didn't explain - the next day, he asked Susan if she wanted to join him. Confused, Susan said no since she thought it was way too soon, and she has work commitments. He then proceeded to break up with her, leaving Susan very depressed and confused. According to an information from a friend several months after the breakup, Ken has planned this for a long time, and that he was seeing someone else interstate. However, these were all alleg... keep reading on reddit ➡
I apologize if the wording of the title is confusing, but I wish all humans would just disappear at the same time.
Imagine IPs like Metal Gear Solid, Silent Hill, Castlevania, Contra, etc developed by Sony's masterful first party studios as exclusives taking full advantage of the PS5.
I'm emailing my principal to say that I'm not going to in-person PD next week. I'm offering to attend virtually. (Our speaker is coming in via Zoom---there's literally no reason for us to be there.)
The numbers are too high in my state. They want us to sit at grade level tables and do group work together. Many of my coworkers have vacationed recently in hotspot states. I'm immunocompromised. I'm not going.
Our superintendent says that we have to go in person because the school spent a lot of money on this specific program and that the community needs to see us training for it. I think that's a stupid reason to put our lives at risk.
I'm sure I'll be fired, and if not fired, punished. Wish me luck, everyone.
Update: Almost 24 hours with zero response. Kind of like the email I sent three weeks ago about my medical conditions. Hmm...
Imagine the possibilities, the risks you would take
If some guys wins the lottery, I could gain the luck boost needed to win it myself. Olympic sports winner? I could do that. Advanced engineer? Now I have the knowledge and skills needed to be one myself. Winner of the beauty contest? I'm beautiful now. These effects last as long as I choose, and I can choose to be rid of them or replace them whenever I choose.
Edit: y'all are telling me that my comment isn't good enough so for the record this was inspired by a post in r/godtiersuperpowers by u/Enderlord700 that I thought would be interesting here.
Heroes winning is soooooooo overdone. It's so irritating for to watch the heroes end up in the most ridiculous inescapable situation possible and then being forced to keep on watching another hour where the heroes are somehow omnipotent and work 10x faster than the villains while the villains forget to do basic shit.
I saw Rise of Skywalker recently. I hated it. The Resistance was hopeless. Palpatine had thousands of planet destroying ships and the resistance had just lost <90% of its fleet. In the next 1 hour it was just "Yes! I managed to take down a cruiser using a starfighter with its shield still enabled!" and the other side is basically just "Should we fire back?" "Wait we had weapons?". It was so boring. I would have preferred if everyone died and Palpatine won.
Speaking of Star Wars, lets rethink something. According to the Star Wars Community, ROTS is the best of the prequels and ESB the best of the original movies. Do you know what they have in common? The Villain WON.... keep reading on reddit ➡
What do you think?
Source: For the source of this quote, I didn't take it from Robin Williams but actually took it from a youtube comment. When I searched it up, it didn't have an author for the quote and many sources wrote anonymous as the author. I think the quote “I think the saddest people always try their hardest to make people happy because they know what it's like to feel absolutely worthless and they don't want anyone else to feel like that.” from Robin Willaims is much better and realistic than this quote. But maybe the quote could have been inspired by Robin Williams's quote?
EDIT: My wish was granted IRL because r/thegroot was founded.
After the interview.
It was the best interview ever. I was so confident. I accepted all your advices and the advices I got from previous interviews and It was amazing.
Thank you so much for the support everyone!
I grew up Catholic. My parents and I went to church every Sunday. They always told me that I should always do everything for the greater glory for God. I believed in it until I was about 15.
As I started to open my mind, I realized that I didn’t like Catholicism. I didn’t like the idea that I should get to go to Heaven and my best friend, who does not believe in God, will go to Hell. It never sat right with me, and the more thought, the more I didn’t want to be Catholic anymore.
I’m in my first year of college (I moved to the West coast), so when I‘m talking to my parents on the phone, they’ll always ask me if I’ve been going to church. In the beginning, I would lie and say that I was. However, I would go to bed feeling incredibly ashamed because I was just going to keep lying about my life, and I needed to be honest. One night, when they asked again, I told them that I hadn’t gone. Immediately, they sternly told me that I needed to be going to Church. I never went to church one sing... keep reading on reddit ➡
