2021.10.16 06:51 cj12337 24/M. Hi, guys! Feeling bored tonight. [Chat] [Friendship]
Not much going on tonight, so I’m looking to chat with somebody.
First off, things about me! I’m a college graduate for film, and I’m an amateur screenwriter. I like to write light-hearted fantasy/sci-fi, but I’m noticing that I’m now leaning towards serious fantasy/sci-fi stories now. Right now, I’m stuck in a creative burnout, so…
I’ve been catching up in my reading. I love, you guess it, fantasy/sci-fi novels. Two of my favorite books are “The Way of Kings” by Brandon Sanderson and “A Wizard of Earthsea” by Ursula Le Guin. Right now, I’m going out of my comfort zone and reading nonfiction works. I just finished a book about the Dancing Plague that sounds bonkers that my sister thought it was fiction. It’s a good read, and it’s really interesting how it argues that the mix psychological & emotional distress and superstition can make us do strangely disturbing shit.
I’ve also read Lao Te Ching’s “Tao Te Ching,” and this has been such a guide for me to accept life and myself as they are. I wouldn’t be at the place I am now without it.
Taoism has also led me to practicing mindfulness. I thought it wouldn’t work for me, and while the effect is subtle, it’s really opening my eyes to living in the moment and not be concern about the loss and sweetness of the past and the excitement and worries of the future.
I can describe my personality, but in the spirit of Taoism, I cannot label myself. Instead, all I can say is that I am who I am at the moment.
If you want to chat, just PM me! If not, it’s all cool too.
Hope y’all have a nice day and thanks for reading this long-ass post.

2021.10.16 06:51 fiestydrunk Australia is totalitarian?
I have been having some insightful discussions with Americans on reddit lately (poor choice on my part, I know) and I have been informed that Australia is a totalitarian state. I am obviously quite shocked and disturbed to discover this and cannot believe that I have been living in Aus in ignorance all this time.
Does anyone know how we can get rid of totalitarianism in Australia? It sounds pretty scary from what I have read online. Any tips? Any stories? Need to reassure my american comrades that we are doing everything we can in Aus to get the same freedoms as them.

2021.10.16 06:51 Force_Resistance I talked to my smoker friend today
I was really surprised but I was no different than him as well (i have this PMO addiction) so I told him to stop that shit but he was like "it ends all of my fucking problems so I might as well just continue" so I told him that it's a fucking illusion. now I know the real reason why people get addicted to shit. It's because people have problems and they try to cope with their motherfucking problems. addictions are like a quick fix just to make u feel better. but in reality, u only suck your foot further into the trap. find a healthy way to cope like meditating. I've been constantly relapsing every week bc of stress but meditation made me last for a month. (I relapsed on day 31 because I didn't meditate) so start meditating and stop seeking unhealthy shit to fix your problems. It's just gon make them worse. as boring as that healthy stuff is, just do it. that's the only way. go forward and bear through whatever it takes.

2021.10.16 06:51 ochemfan They don't know what it's like
I know that there have already been several posts on here by younger people who are in the caregiving position for someone affected by PD and I want to add to the collection. I am feeling so many emotions right now, after finding this page. I don't feel so alone anymore. I am a 21 year old who is living at home to help care for my dad. None of my friends genuinely understand what it is I am going though but it seems that (unfortunately) many folks on here do. All my friends, they all have two healthy parents and will never understand what my life is like. They don't know what it's like to have the roles reversed on you while you're still a teenager and have to become the caregiver to the person who once cared for you. They don't know what it's like to have to carefully count out the plethora of prescription medications every week and have so many bottles in your medicine cabinet that it feels like a pharmacy. They don't know what it's like to have to factor in space for a walker and a wheel chair on every god damn outing that the family goes on. They don't know what it's like to not be able to understand what your dad is saying even though you desperately want to. They don't know what it's like to watch this person who you always knew was so strong and independent become just the opposite before your eyes. They don't know what it's like to watch the suffering day in and day out and know that there is nothing they can do to stop it. They don't know what it's like to know that that is no cure and that the only path from this point is the one where things get worse. They don't know what it's like to have your dad take you out for your 21st birthday only to have a bad fall and taint the whole memory with the terrible taste of this awful awful disease. They don't know what it's like to never go on another hike with your own father ever again. They don't know what it's like to look at pictures from your childhood and see the days when he could walk and talk and want those days back so badly that it hurts. They don't know what it's like to see your mother struggle so terribly that she just wants to buy a plane ticket to California and leave and never look back. They don't know what it's like to not be able to move out of your parents' house because if you do the whole family will fall apart. They don't know what it's like to put your whole life on hold because you're terrified of missing what's left of the "good" years which at this point is just relative to the horridness that is to come. They just do not know.

2021.10.16 06:51 DanSsay Hi, y'all. I'm new and I'm hungry for knowledge.
Hi, y'all. I'm from Colombia and I am just starting in all this seduction thing and, I would like books recommendations because, I just realized that seduction is way big than I thought it was. I'm currently reading "The Game" of Neil Strauss and I was willing to read "The Mystery Method" but I'm starting to think that 2 books aren't enough for learn how to pick-up any girl. I hope you guys can help me, I would totally appreciate your help.
Also, I have this other question:
¿Are seduction techniques only appropriate for a bar environment or they're also help me at a college/academic environment?
Pardon any mistakes on my text, English isn't my first language.

2021.10.16 06:51 helleblume Jimmy and me
Jimmy and I grew up in a small town nestled against the Angeles national forest in a town in Los Angeles county. Seeing pictures of him as a toddler he was always smiling. He seemed like a really happy child. However, due to our upbringing, that would all change.
Dad did well for himself in the beginning. He owned his own company, installing flooring and he worked quite a bit. Dad never drank, but he was raised by a teenage alcoholic father in West Virginia during the depression who would chase him and his two sisters around the house with a hatchet during his drunken rages. His family moved a lot, looking for work: Kentucky, Detroit, Oregon, Washington. You get the idea. Dad finally settled in Southern California with his two sisters and mom. His parent divorced and his father started a new family somewhere. Dad didn’t like to talk about him so I don’t even know my grandfather’s name.
My mom was born in Germany the year WW2 started. She has some memories that stand out, like having to leave her favorite doll carriage behind when running to the bomb shelter during an air raid, and her Opa’s house being half destroyed by bombs. Mom said my Oma yanked on her arm so hard it dislocated her shoulder during one of these air raids. Because my Opa (my mom’s father) was forced to fight in the military, mom’s family were evacuated to a German controlled area in France called Alsace-Lorraine. As mom grew to be a teenager, my Oma put her in a boarding school. I asked my mom if her mom was mean or didn’t want her. Mom told me she was the kindest person she knew, she just couldn’t control her because “I wanted to do what I wanted to do.” My mom is still like this today, and suffers from Alzheimer’s. Mom had a child in Germany who she left to be raised by my Oma. Mom refuses to tell me who the father is. However, my mom had a half brother seven years older than her who she has always hated with a passion, so that leaves me to wonder… Mom eventually met an American soldier whom she married, bringing her to the states in 1959. My mom was in love with his brother but nothing ever came out of that. She’s told me her ex-husband’s brother was the love of her life.
Fast forward to the early 70s. My dad and mom meet at a dance hall in Pomona, California. Mom was divorced by then and dad had never married. They were married soon after and had my brother. Two and a half years later I was born. The age of four is my earliest memory of witnessing abuse. My dad used to beat my mom over arguments such as politics. Little things set him off all the time. My brother and I got hit often with belts and wooden spoons for things like being too loud. My mom was both emotionally and sometimes physically abusive to us. She slashed my brother’s back with a three pronged gardening tool when he was three years old, probably for just being a three year old. At four my mom took me shopping for a bathing suit. I wanted one like my neighbor friend had but we couldn’t find it, so I decided I didn’t want a bathing suit. Mom dragged me out to the parking lot by my hair and was punching and slapping my head repeatedly. To this day, if I hit my head on something I get really angry. Another time I broke my wrist roller skating and my parents didn’t seek medical attention. Mom just wrapped it in ace wrap. I can see my ulna bone is twisted out of place and my wrist strength is weak.
One day, when i was 10, my dad dropped us off at Raging Waters for the day. When he picked us up in the evening we went to a different house. Apparently my parents separated without telling us and we had no idea where my mom was. She was just…gone. It was very confusing and traumatic. Eventually my mom started to visit us. She had rented herself a studio apartment that you paid by the week. I visited there twice. There were always weird people drinking and smoking at some patio furniture in the run down courtyard of this place. I hated it. Around that time my dad went to stay with my aunt in Fountain Valley for a week. I kind of remember this but not fully. Apparently my brother and I were left alone during this time and, according to my mom, the house was a disaster and there was no food.
My parents never told us they loved us and were not affectionate at all. We didn’t converse, either. It was like every person for themselves in that house. My brother and I raised ourselves and navigated being teenagers on our own. This abuse and neglect continued until I was 16, when I finally stood up to my dad. He was about to hit my mom and I pushed him. He knocked me to the floor, but I was proud of myself for trying. He didn’t end up hitting my mom. I left and my boyfriend’s parents let me sleep on their couch until my dad called and demanded I come home. I was scared and felt I had no choice, so i did what he told me.
My dad’s business eventually failed, mom refused to work, so we would go without heat, hot water, electricity, and food for weeks, sometimes months. I got a job after school that paid minimum wage. I would help when I could, but minimum wage was $4.25 an hour and my paychecks were pocket change. Dad was too proud to ask for state help of any kind. We didn’t get new clothes for school, so my boyfriend at the time would shoplift clothes for me. I know that was wrong, but I had two outfits to wear and I think he felt bad for me. I never talked about any of this with my friends, but my best friend growing up would ask me why my mom always looked at me like she hated me. I honestly didn’t have an answer for her.
Growing up Jimmy didn’t have a lot of friends. He had a few close ones come and go but he was more or less a loner, skipping school and staying in his room. My parents didn’t enforce him going to school. They didn’t enforce any rules on him at all actually. I remember he used to like to hold my head under water when we would swim, laughing as he would let me up for air, and dunk me back down again. Of course we both got beat for this. Dad had a pool built long before his business failed. After the dunking I didn’t like swimming in it anymore. I was being molested by my uncle from the time I was five to the age of 10. When it all came out in the open, and I feel I must mention my uncle only served time on the weekends for this, my brother called me a slut. I didn’t know what that meant and when I asked my mom she told me to “never mind.” Jimmy also had trichotillomania and would pull out all his eyelashes, most likely due to the stress in the house. My parents didn’t get him help and would ridicule him for this.
At 18, Jimmy left to the Army to be an Army Ranger during the first Gulf War in the early 90s. He was stationed at Ft. Benning in Georgia and later moved to Ft. Lewis in Washington. He never saw combat. The war ended before he would’ve been deployed. According to my brother, this is where he started using meth. He said his commanding officer sold it. Whether that’s true or not, I have no idea. All I know is Jimmy showed up one day at the house, a year before he was supposed to be discharged from the Army. He wouldn’t tell us what happened but he mentioned that he had threatened to out his commanding officer for selling meth. The Army didn’t look for him for going AWOL and they had our address. Jimmy continued his meth use after returning. He changed his appearance dramatically, bleaching his hair platinum, shaving the sides, getting facial piercings, and dressing in all black. He would tell me of stories where he got in fights and even threw a guy through a sliding glass door.
My dad died of a sudden heart attack in 1998. Although my dad was abusive, my brother took it really hard. He refused to see him in the ED after he passed. I went to see him, along with my aunt (dad’s sister) and my mom. It gave me some closure. Jimmy quit working after this and would stay in his room all the time and his mental health started to really decline.
Jimmy then began stealing from me. When I would ask for my stuff back, he’d throw it at me. One time he became so angry with me he picked up the trash can and hit me with it. I called the police and it took two officers to restrain him. The officers asked if I wanted to press charges but I said no. This was the beginning of him taking on the role of our abusive father, as you’ll see later. One thing about my brother is he loved animals and never hurt them. He just hurt me, sometimes punching me in the back so hard it knocked the wind out of me.
As his psychosis got worse, he would tell me the crows talked to him. According to him, people in the neighborhood who had certain mailboxes at their curb were part of the FBI and they were watching him. He accused me of hiding our dad in Oregon and that he really wasn’t dead and my grief was just “crocodile tears.” Around this time, our dog Heidi had passed away of old age, and Heidi would come and talk to him in ghostly form. I told him let’s get you some help so you’ll be safe. He agreed and I drove him out to the San Bernardino County Department of Behavioral Health. They said they had a spot for him. When we got there, he told me he didn’t want to stay because they were going to kill him. I tried to reason with him, ensuring him that they were there to help, but he refused. Since he wasn’t considered an immediate danger to himself or others, he couldn’t be forced to stay.
Jimmy began breaking things around the house, punching holes in the walls out of the blue, taking cabinet doors off the hinges. I decided to move out with my then boyfriend. After I left I would get call after call from him, and he would leave these lengthy voicemails that made no sense at all. He would call back to finish his rant when time ran out for recording. These recordings would last up to 10 minutes at times.
According to my mom, things became drastically worse in the early 2000s. My brother had a stick from a tree with a long branch in the middle and two smaller branches on the sides. He put a hat on top of the branch, a glove on one of the smaller side branches, and taped a knife to the other side branch. He kept it in his room with him and would have conversations with it. My mom told me he would stay up all night screaming incoherently in his room. He started getting violent with her as well. She told me she had to get a restraining order against him for her safety. He was forced to leave the house and tried to come back the next day, but my mom wouldn’t let him in. He left and I haven’t seen or talked to him since.
After my brother was gone, I went to visit my mom. We were somewhat estranged and I was going to check up on her, not staying long. I went into my brother’s old room and found stacks of notebooks with random letters of the alphabet written all through the pages, almost like some sort of code. The room was thrashed and I guess my mom wasn’t ready to clean it up. I tried to help but I hired a maid service to do it.
I did look up my brother’s name in the San Bernardino court records out of curiosity and found several arrest records for loitering, disturbing the peace, and the last one for possession of a shopping cart back in 2019.
If I saw him now, I honestly wouldn’t know what to expect. I wonder if he finally got help, but I doubt it. He really believed in his reality and thought everyone else was out to get him. Plus the shopping cart arrest pretty much answers that question. I hear people say we have a responsibility to help people with mental illnesses. I agree we should help one another, but you can’t help someone who refuses it. I often wish we had a “normal” family. As a child, what we went through was our normal and I thought all kids went through this. I was wrong. There’s so much more I could write but it would be too lengthy. I chose a career that would help people and I hope what I do makes a difference. I’m now my mom’s POA because she has Alzheimer’s and have taken care of her in my home, despite our non-relationship. She’s still demanding and narcissist. It’s exhausting. I feel sharing some of my story could help others see they aren’t alone, and help me in the process. Thank you for taking the time to read this.

I bought my first car (2006 Mazda3 hatchback manual transmission 5 speed 2.3) I kind of wish I went for a mazdaspeed3 but I didn’t know there was a difference lol. I don’t know a whole lot about cars but what would you guys suggest to make the driving smoother or faster?
Things I have replaced since I bought it so far are the rear brakes, front and rear shocks, tires.

2021.10.16 06:51 danielrosehill Anybody have a nice home storage system for beer cans?
You could say that I'm something of a prepper.
Beer is one thing that I always appreciate having on hand. And I've been thinking that rather than adding it to my grocery list once a week I should ... just start buying it in larger quantities and getting a small stocking system going. Sort of like a wine cellar. But... for beer.
I've seen some designs online for beer can storage solution. But most seem to be designed for (short) American beer cans and to only fit in a few of them. I've always grown up buying beer in 500ml cans (slightly larger than what Americans call 'tallboys') so those are what I would be looking to store.
Has anybody come up with some storage solutions for keeping a good batch of these on hand?
I reckon I'm probably going through about 4-6 cans per week right now, so if I could figure out a way to store 2 x 24 packs, or even three crates, I could restock beer only every few months.
