2020.10.25 05:54 Orpherischt Know Halloween
Halloween or Hallowe'en (a contraction of Hallows' Even or Hallows' Evening), also known as Allhalloween, All Hallows' Eve, or All Saints' Eve, is a celebration observed in many countries on 31 October, the eve of the Western Christian feast of All Hallows' Day.

- "All Hallows' Day"= 474 primes

It begins the observance of Allhallowtide, the time in the liturgical year dedicated to remembering the dead, including saints (hallows), martyrs, and all the faithful departed.
- "Allhallowtide" = 1918 squares ( remember the Spanish Flu )
One theory holds that many Halloween traditions originated from ancient Celtic harvest festivals, particularly the Gaelic festival Samhain, which may have had pagan roots and that Samhain itself was Christianized as Halloween by the early Church

October 31 is the 304th day of the year (305th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. 61 days remain until the end of the year.
ie. number 9 is a major one, all the above , except for 61, reduce to 9.
- (10) + (31) + (20) + (20) = 81 ( ie. "Wizard" = "Ritual" = 81 alphabetic )
- (10) + (31) + 2+0+2+0 = 45 ( ie. "Geometry" = 45 reduced )
- 1+0 + 3+1 + 2+0+2+0 = 9 ( ie. 'witch' and 'broom' )
- (10) + (31) + (20) = 61 ( ie. matching days left in the year on Oct 31 )
Here we see how a news agency (ABC News, or an Alphabet Agency) can generate thematic topics for the day of Halloween, using dictionary listings, and results from my custom lexicon files.
Matching the search phrase, 'Halloween', across multiple ciphers simultaneously. Common nouns in italics, proper nouns in standard font (I separate them in those sections with a high number of matches, but they remain mixed together further down). I have bolded some items that catch my eye on first glance, particularly those that match the 'scary' thematic of the day. The list might be further reduced to a manageable set by filtering these results down to those spells whose numbers match the date numerologies of the actual 2020 Halloween (as seen above). At the bottom of the list are primes cipher matches, which arguably might rank above those with multiple matches in other ciphers.

2020.10.23 12:46 MassiveStallion Reboot thoughts, Frasier and new media
Frasier ended before the advent of smart phones and social media, online dating wasn't a thing. Radio was still a thing.
For me the most interesting thing is how Fraiser and Niles would adapt to all the new tech. In the show they seemed to do a pretty good job moving from the 1990s to the early 2000s. We saw him move from the 1980s and pretty much stay 'on trend' with tech and society.
Does Frasier get a podcast? Youtube star? Does he make an app? What would his online dating profile look like? The show takes a pretty dim view of things like online dating, geek culture and nerds...note Frasier's extreme antipathy for Noel and his love of Star Trek.
With geek culture now becoming dominant, along with hipsters taking over much of Frasier's hobbies (Opera, sherry, french food) how does he react?
Frankly, I think it would be hilarious for him to make a 180 on all of these things and become a really noxious, Marvel Movie spouting steam punk craft beer brewer, for at least one episode. "Frasier goes Hipster" He was always jumping on dumb trends and compromising his likes in order to fit in with high-society. Along with antiques, would he now be collecting and showing off geek memorabilia too?
Another thing I'd like to see is more multiculturalism..or at least a more diverse cast. Cam Winston was one of my absolute favorite characters on the show. I'd really love to see more "Black Frasier", "Asian Frasier" and "Hispanic Frasiers". Frasier classically has some issues dealing with black people as we see in "Doctor Mary" and it would be fucking hilarious to see him go "Woke", which we all know he would go so hard woke it would be obnoxious. Frasier first and foremost had an affinity for French and English culture...the whole "foraging", "gastronomy" and "bizarre foods" movements brought by Anthony Bourdain and Andrew Zimmern certainly would not be missed by the Crane boys. Would love to see them trying eat crickets or live octopus or something like that. The caviar episode was one of my favorites and I'd love to see how Frasier deals with stuff like Cronuts
Finally, there's the idea of Frasier's women. Back then he was always dating opera singing supermodels and stuff like that, but the modern 'ideal' of the intellectual woman has changed from someone like say Lilith or Claire. What if he started dating 'geek girls' and that sort of thing, women that would have normally earned his derision 20 years ago? I'm guessing women like Lucy Lawless, etc would be appropriate..basically older women who would have worked on sci-fi/tv shows or in tech that would have completely fallen off old Frasier's radar for being far too 'nerdy'.
Speaking of nerdy, Frasier was always the CLASSIC self-hating nerd, complete with issues stemming from childhood. How does he react to "The Age of The Geek"? Suddenly all those terrible highschool experiences and episodes make him more relatable and appealing..turning episodes like his reunion and membership in the chess club's barbershop quartet into things that make him more 'mass appealing' than as some gross pathetic nerd.
Frasier was always THE representative of the coastal elite, and the notion of coastal elite has changed from well..Frasier, to something more like AOC. Frasier, always being the elite of the elites would probably change and I'm just curious how that looks like. The show has always been about 'the good life'...cooking, travel, wealth, technology have all changed over the years and I'm really to see how Frasier would have changed and stayed the same.
Of course, other than Frasier it would be curious to see how the other cast members adapted to modern life as well.

2020.10.20 08:41 ConspiracyMeow Besties no More
In high school, I was apart of a group of best friends. Mindy* was our sarcastic, hipster buddy, Zara* was the bookworm who liked to party, and Ulla* was the good girl who did whatever Zara did, while I was the social butterfly who had a punk rock streak. We did everything together. We went to school all day, talked on the phone all night, and hung out all weekend. Nothing was hidden from one another or too sacred to discuss. Dating, periods, clothes, and family, all were up for conversation at any moment. At the time it was a comfort to have these people in my life, now I can identify this as a co-dependent relationship, but it was emotionally fulfilling nonetheless. Too bad nothing lasts forever. This is how it all fell apart and turned out not to be as healthy of a relationship as it seemed.
Ulla was the first to quit the clique after school ended. She moved to another city to go to a party school and failed out after missing too many classes from drinking benders, all within the first 18 months. These days she pays student loans for the degree she never got and works as a receptionist at a retirement home. The only thing she ever got out of college was a heavy addiction to alcohol. Ulla always remained in contact with Zara though.
Mindy, on the other hand, skipped traditional college and instead opted for online courses. She kept at it with a local office job working her way up from part-time assistant to running the place. The transition was slow in her career, taking years to complete. When she started her job she hated her co-workers. She would talk the ear off of anyone who would listen about the catty and trifling old bags she worked with. Now, she is the trifling old bag that is difficult to tolerate as a "can I see the manager" type, making everything into an argument and putting down anyone in her range. The last time I saw her in public I hid and practically crawled to my car to avoid her, lest I be the next person she decides to have a problem with that day.
Zara and I became the closest after high school. We kept in contact with each other every day for a solid year. I told her about my life as a day laborer and she told me how she was doing back home making her way from community college to university. She leaned on me for emotional support when her boyfriend left her for a man and I tried my best to help her through her insecurities that followed. After all, she was there for me when my long time high school boyfriend and I split. No matter the drama we were there for each other, regardless of the distance. This was why I was so surprised when I called her on one of the worst days of my life to find her to be nothing as I thought she was.
Leading up to my lowest point, I got a letter in the mail saying that I had tested positive for cancer about a week after a routine exam. For the followup, one of many to come, I sat through doctors telling me what to expect from cancer treatment, and the effect it would have on my body. I had to make plans for losing my labor-intensive job and how to pay my bills. I was devastated. Even though I was hours away from my closest friend, I reached for my phone and called her crying at the horrible news from a particularly bad session of finding out what was in my now limited future. Expecting sympathy, I instead was met with a smug attitude of joy from the person that I considered to be my best friend. Zara told me that I "got what I deserved" and hung up. Blindsided, I waited for her to call back and apologize. To this day she never did.
In the weeks that followed, I was relieved to find that false positives were common and that my case was just that. With a clean bill of health, I carried on with my life, only now much more lonely. Ulla called me after the whole mess was sorted out and sent me a get well package, she always was a good person despite her problems. When Ulla and I talked during the holidays when I was visiting my home town, I found out why my supposed best friend Zara was so thrilled to jab a knife in me at my lowest.
As Ulla told it, Zara's boyfriend before he officially came out as gay, had a crush on my boyfriend unbeknownst to anyone but Zara. Zara's entire ill-fated relationship with her ex was her politely accepting that he was dating her as a cover for him to spend more time with my then-boyfriend. Not going into if my boyfriend knew about this or not (he never let on as far as I knew) Zara had a brooding hatred of me for seeming to have this perfect relationship and held back her animosity for me the whole time. I was dumbfounded at this revelation. I had known that her boyfriend was always asking about my boyfriend, but so was half of the school, so I thought nothing of it. This changed the way that I viewed Zara. All I could think of her now was as a vicious female with a malicious agenda. My best friend turned out to be a frenemy and I never knew it until she thought she had some sort of cosmic leg up on me when she thought I had cancer.
These days every so often I pass Zara in town. A small community like this makes it hard to never see a person again, even if you wish it were so. We even tried to make awkward chitchat at a grocery store once. Still, why never apologize? Why was she so mad about something I knew nothing about and had no control over? Would I ever forgive her even if she did say sorry? Pride makes people do some hurtful things. In the end, I think she just wanted to hate me for any reason really. Some people thrive on the negative. In challenging times, I am almost in a bizarre way, if not entirely happy at least satisfied to know the true intentions of others. People who care and those who wish you harm show themselves in moments of difficulty. The person I trusted most showed who she was and I saw it clear as day.
*Names are changed to protect privacy.

2020.10.20 03:09 SalamiMommie The Spooky Brewery Near My Apartment
I just moved to a new state with my girlfriend of five years and was really excited to see what the city has to offer. We both felt like a new change was needed in our life. She got accepted to work at a very big company that was going to pay her close to six figures and I was planning on finding work where I could until I finished my online degree. Moving here was always her dream and my dream was to be with her.
We had a beautiful apartment to call our own and was prepared to take on life together. We already were coming up with ideas of how to decorate and that we were going to go to an animal shelter and rescue at cat.
We spent our first night in the apartment and instead of cooking we decided to order some pizza. I figured we were gonna stay up super late and binge watch The Office but she wanted to be well rested for her first day of her job.
I spent the entire night it felt like applying for jobs and finishing up some school work. In not much longer I would get my degree and be able to work at the same company as her, with a lower position.
Before I tuckered in that night I tried to look up some local restaurants and hang out areas and noticed an interesting place. It was called “The Boowery.” It was a brewery that was themed like Halloween year round. Though it didn’t have reviews, the pictures always looked like it was packed so I figured they had pretty good beer. Since I didn’t have much to do tomorrow I felt like checking it out was a good plan.
I felt so excited, I woke up close to noon and my wife sent me some sweet texts thanking me for putting her coffee on and how much she loved me. She was so thankful her dreams were coming true and that I was a part of them.
I slid on my jeans and took a look in the mirror to make sure I was half decent looking before making the short walk to The Boowery.
I walked inside and it was filled with many people. Some were laughing and I spent some time noticing the decor of the place. It had black candles on the walls, fake cobwebs, a board that said tonight was horror trivia night, skulls, ect. It was overall pretty tacky in my opinion. But then again I wasn’t there for looks, I was there for a tasty beer.
The place was so cheesy even the beer names were Halloween themed. They were all priced six dollars and sixty six cents. While I was trying to look through the list of all the beers they had I was greeted by the bartender.
“What will it be, mortal?” I was greeted by a young man with a crackly voice. His voice sounded like he used bourbon and gravel as mouth wash. No young adult I have ever talked to had a voice like his.
He was pale, it’s like he hadn’t seen the sun in days. He had a hipster type mustache that curled. He was slightly chunky and wore a dress shirt and an orange bow tie.
“Mortal?” I smirked at him. It’s like he could tell how I figured it was cheesy.
“I’m supposed to say it to everyone. So whatcha having...brother.”
I looked around and seen a lot of the people there drinking darker beers. I was a sucker for porters.
“I’ll have the porter.” I smiled and stretched my card forward to start a tab.
“Sounds good. All our beers have different effects.” He began pouring.
“I guess you’re supposed to say that too?” I tried not to chuckle. I like to find common ground with everyone I talk to and be their friend.
I took a sip and it was probably the greatest porter I ever had. It was dark, had a great coffee taste, and a nutty node to it. The bartenders smile was slowly sinking and things....began changing.
His smile was drooping to a frown and his brown eyes became pure black. I freaked out and backed up. All the customers were looking at me with cartoonish huge smiles on their face.
“Well. Aren’t you going to finish?” I looked up to the second floor and a man in a bright neon red suit was smiling at me. “Don’t make me come down there and make you drink it all!” His voice was like nails on chalk board. His hair was blonde and curly and he had bright blue eyes.
The beer floated in front of me. Everyone still smiling and staring at me. I closed my eyes and chugged the beverage as quickly as I could.
Then I opened my eyes and seen my beautiful girlfriend at her job. She was sitting in her office and proudly looking at her college degree and a picture of us on our first date on her desk.
“Chad Spiders is ready to see you now.” She had a voice pop up on her office phone.
“Send him in.”
The man in the neon red suit was in her office. They began frantically kissing and she was ripping her clothes off. I was screaming for her to stop but she couldn’t hear me.
She was leaning over on her desk. He lifted his hands and huge claws came out of his finger tips. He plunged them into her and began tearing her back apart.
I screamed and tried to run towards them but my body was frozen. He smiled at me and she began screaming out my name for help. Tears filled my face.
“Stop you fucking animal! Kill me instead!”
I felt someone grab my shoulder. I let out a loud scream.
I look up and my girlfriend wasn’t there. It was just the bartender. His hand was in my shoulder.
“It’s okay. It’s over now.” His gravel voice tried to assuring. I looked over and customers near by looked at me with pity and shame. I was covered in sweat.
“What....the.. FUCK ...happened!” I grabbed him by his shirt.
“You just had a panic attack.”
“No, no I didn’t just have a panic attack a man just killed my girlfriend after seducing her in front of me and I couldn’t do nothing about!” I began sobbing.
The bartender pulled me off of him.
“No, no, no. He didn’t.”
“What are you talking about.”
“But he will if you don’t come back at least once a week.”

2020.09.28 07:49 eatpoetry 14 Looks Specifically From 2010 to Try Right Now on Pintrest
Srs my Pinterest post last night seemed to be popular, so I thought I would share my album of fashion that's almost comically out of date that's been come up on suggestions from other images. (May have actively searched just a LITTLE to find the most out of date things possible, but some of these definately were suggested to me)
I actually really like 2008-2012 clothes and most of these looks I sort of like/miss but they all have one thing in common: they are not currently trendy, like, at all.
So without further ado: RIP 2010 Hipsters
Edit: Added "srs" because I don't want people to think I'm making fun of these looks. I really do like them! (Except for maybe the baggy shirts tucked into low rise pants) It's just that they literally ARE trendy hipster fashion that was posted online, 10 years ago.

2020.09.15 01:30 throwaway72543432 the story of a lonely guy
This is more of a storytime thing rather than just a rant or me complaining about my life etc. Also using a throwaway for reasons that will be apparent as you read.So I am a 35 year old male that has never had a girlfriend and I just wanted to share my story and dating life. I will mention right up here that I do have autism and an anxiety disorder and am 5'2 so you can keep that in mind as you read through this.
When I was a teenager I was just sort of an average kid for the area I lived in and for the time. I spent a lot of time playing video games and going to school that kind of generic stuff. However once I got into my early teens I started trying to get a girlfriend. For some reason ever since I was little I have always wanted to get married and be a husband so that was sort of a top priority for me my whole life rather than making money so I focused on that through my teens. The kind of relationship with a girl I always envisioned for myself was one where me and my wife are absolute best friends that support and help each other in everything we do, the king where even though we are married I still take her out on dates every weekend and do fun stuff with her, Unfortunately all of my friends were guys so girls didnt really take notice of me. I wasnt really super ugly or anything but I am a very average looking guy so it isnt like I stood out that much. I tried joining clubs at school that had a lot of girls in them like the french club or the school christian club. However I have autism as aforementioned and people always seemed to perceive me as different. I joined these mostly girl clubs and despite it being a social gathering I always got butted out of conversations and would spend time alone hoping I could talk to someone while I normally instead got to watch the girls talk to the generic "chad" type of guy. As I got towards the end of my time in highschool like halfway through 11th grade I started getting into anime and manga, normally I would read romantic novels and stuff like that. I even would read books like Twilight since it was sort of like a surrogate for my own desires for a relationship. I decided I would have better luck in university
Fastforward to my college years and I majored in engineering eventually getting my masters. During college all of my old friends from HS and I parted ways and I never really made any new friends during my time at university. As you might guess this made my time even harder trying to meet girls since I dont even have a social circle outside of just being in a class with them. During my first 2 years I had my elective and general ed classes so I met girls fairly regularly and would try to strike up conversations with them during class about whatever the subject was and normally they seemed pretty receptive of me until we would hangout at my dorm where I had my manga and anime collection. Keep in mind this was during the early 00s so anime wasnt as mainstream as it is now. As soon as any girl saw that they basically would stop talking to me altogether unless I approached them during class. Once I stopped having regular interactions with girls in my last 4 years of uni since there were almost no girls in my engineering classes I sort of gave up with the expectation that once I get a job and graduate I would have better luck since I would have money then to help so I just went back to watching romantic movies and reading novels to sort of replace the actual human interaction I craved.
After I graduated i managed to get a pretty good job at a firm making 70k starting off. It wasnt the absolute best I could do but it was in the same town that my parents lived in so I was able to live with my parents rent free while I saved up money. Even better during this time the stock market was taking a hit due to the recession so I decided to start investing almost all of my money into the stock market to start my retirement fund(this is relevant later). Once I was really entrenched in my career and was still not meeting girls I decided to make dating profiles on multiple dating websites. this was around 2011 and I went on a dry spell of 6 years (yes 6 years on multiple dating websites!) without ever getting a match!) During this 6 years I would try to get involved with as many singles groups and other sort of young adult things at my church to try and meet more girls. I would try to get older people to set me up with their kids but they were never interested in me. I would even change churches every year or go to multichurch events in town where multiple churches would get together to do stuff and had no luck there either. Sure enough no luck here either. I eventually made a reddit account in 2013 and as such all my friends are just people I play video games with or talk about anime with online.
after 6 years on dating websites I finally met a girl online near the end of 2017. She wasnt really what I had in mind when I fantasized about being married and getting a wife. She was an animation student in her early 20s while I was in my early 30s. She had sort of that "hipster" or new look. She had pink hair, a nosering and that hairstyle where she has sort of a mohawk/long hair on half of her head and the other half is shaved short. she was also an atheist which is weird since I am a christian. We chatted for about 3 months before meeting. We seemed to hit it off pretty well and she was also really into anime and manga just like me although she preferred gundam and mech anime instead of the romcom stuff I liked. We went on dates twice a week for about 2 months before my parents went out of town and I brought her home to my place. We were watching little witch academia on netflix when she got up to go to the restroom and she apparently went in my room because she saw my trump "MAGA" hat and brought it back into the living room and confronted me about it. It was almost comical how interrogative and angry she was when she approached me about it. She asked me if I had voted for trump in 2016 and when I told yea thats why I got the hat she just lost it and said she could "never be with a man that would vote for such a racist, sexist and woman hating pig like Trump". She left and cut all ties with me that night. You might say I dodged a bullet with her after that outburst but keep in mind I was 32 years old and this is the ONLY bullet that was ever fired my way in my whole life.
almost 3 years later I have yet to get any new matches on my online dating accounts. Still living with my parents and working at the same engineering firm I started out at over 10 years ago. I eventually sort of caved in and decided to go full weeb over the last year. My room used to just have bookshelves filled with anime and manga but now my whole room is full of anime girl posters and plushies and figmas. I even bought 2 dakimakuras (body pillows) and covers for them and even have one that has arms that I can wrap around me when I sleep to sort of be like I am cuddling someone. I even got to the point where since I cant get any dates sometimes when my parents are gone I will sit at the table with one of my dakimakuras across from me and sort of have a dinner date with it to simulate having a wife(sort of like when an old person loses their husband/wife but still carry around a picture of their SO and pretend like they are still there). I havent completely given up hope on finding a wife someday but I do get the occasional burst of emotion when I cry myself to sleep or when I am in public and see a happy couple I get jealous and sad about it.
I guess the only thing I do have sort of going for me is that between my job making 120k a year and me investing in the stock market which now makes me about 50k a year on its own and living with my parents I can retire when I am 45 since am my parents only child and will inherit the property and stuff. So financially I am set and am happy about that. I dont really know what the ultimate purpose of this post was other than to say I am sort of sad and hate my life in every way except for how much money I have which even then isnt a ton just enough that I am sort of comfortable. I always imagined having a wife and kids by now and being able to do family stuff and have my parents have grandkids and all that stuff.

2020.09.13 01:06 TheDalailamasglasses Soft ghosted? Confusing girl. Help!!
So I finally matched with a seemingly perfect girl for me. Shes a professional painter, tattoo artist, hipster as fuck and beautiful and wears no makeup and dresses cool. I send her a "hey" and she doesnt respond...bummed. but 3 days later she responds and says "sorry thom (uses my name) I do still use it but i sometimes forget, how is your pandemic going"? I respond within a few hours. No response for 2 days from her . She proceeds to send me a link to her art and her instagram. I check the link and respond with compliments within a few hours with a link to my own art as well. No response for 3 days. On the third day (2 hours ago) she LIKES my message with my link in it. I think, oh shit what do I do now? Double text? Wait? I am able to check the stats on my website with my music on it and no one had played anything from a direct link in the last 3 days so she def didnt listen to it at all. So of coarse I pump up my testicles and swallow my pride and commit online dating sin....double text...... I ask her if shes from nashville. No response even though she liked my message recently. What I'm wondering from you fine people is, is she soft ghosting me? Was she never interested in the first place since she messages once every 3 days? Why do that? Why respond at all? Why send one message every 3 days and send links to your Instagram and art website if you are just gonna soft ghost? Why like my message and not listen to my music when I clearly looked at her stuff? It's not like I even had enough messages to say anything weird to be soft ghosted ya know? Why wouldnt she just unmatch? This is "stringing along" to it's most extreme in terms of app dating that I've experienced. You think shes gonna come out of nowhere and message in 3 days again or is liking my message and not responding the figurative nail in the coffin of our would-be relationship? I mean, she swiped right on me too, I just dont get it.

2020.08.31 21:25 its_in_there [PubQ] Query Critique: MAYBE IT'S ME, Women's Fiction, 76k (Round 2)
Ugh. I've never wanted to bash my face into my desk so much. Query writing is HARD. I just can't seem to get this thing right. The book is funny and light-hearted, but I'm having a hard time getting that across because I'm so concerned about getting it "right," know what I mean?
Anyway... This is the second version of the query. You can check out the first here
[Something personal about the agent], which is why I’m sending you my women’s fiction epistolary novel, MAYBE IT’S ME.
28-year-old film critic Aimee Warren just wants to find love, yet she’s thwarted by every turn. When she responds to a missed connection ad on the JustMissed app, she’s hopeful that things will finally work out for her the way they do for her friends. When the conversation with the mystery beanie-wearing hipster turns from sweet to scary—full of “nice guy” texts about how she should clamor at the chance in his bed—she blocks him and swears off dating entirely. If this is what loves is like in the days of social media, she’s not interested.
At the insistence of her friends, she decides to give love one last shot. She crafts a clandestine JustMissed post of her own, hoping that she can finally end her years of loneliness. Aimee hears from Ben, a seemingly perfect fellow dog-loving superhero nerd. She finally starts to feel like she’s going to get the happy ending she’s always hoped for. Before she gets the chance to set her anxiety aside and turn their online flirting into an in-person reality, an old crush re-enters her life. James, pub trivia master and breaker of hearts (hers included), responds to her ad. She struggles with the choice between a new potential flame or the feelings she always harbored for her “one that got away.” If she doesn’t make a move soon, she risks turning her fear of ending up Forever Alone into a self-fulfilling prophecy.
When her best friend’s bachelorette weekend ends in a crashed party, friendship betrayal, and a dramatic arrest, Aimee soon learns that it’s hard to trust your intuition when people aren’t always what they seem.
With emails, texts, tweets and even police reports, MAYBE IT’S ME is complete at 76,000 words and would appeal to fans of Rainbow Rowell’s ATTACHMENTS and Mary Adkins’ WHEN YOU READ THIS. This is a stand-alone novel with series potential.
This will be my debut, though I’m no stranger to writing. I’ve been a professional freelance writer since [year] and recently graduated with a BA in Creative Writing from [university].
I have added [whatever they asked for] to the body of this email, as requested in your submission guidelines. Thank you for your time and consideration.

2020.08.28 19:50 starry_eyes222 I seem to have trouble making female friends
34F I haven't had a best friend since about 2 years ago. We were friends for about 6 years but then I felt we were going in different directions. She was very much stuck in high school & I wanted to try new adult things. She also criticized me a lot & talked a lot of crap behind all her friends back. Eventually she started distancing herself from me & when I confronted her she got defensive so I cut her out of my life.
Before her I hadn't had a best friend or female friend since high school. All my "best friends" in high school turned out to be competitive, messed with my self esteem, weren't trusting & were unambitious & drama seeking. Most if not all of them had kids right out of high school. We drifted a part after that.
Girls I've met through work haven't been any better. Most of them are shallow minded, selfish, superficial, and drama seeking. I was more quiet and humble so they made fun of me & bullied me a lot for it.
I make friends easily with guys but almost all of them want to date me usually so they stop talking to me when they realize I'm not interested.
My lack of friends has affected my dating life because men often think a girl without friends is lacking something & could become dependent on them too much but thats actually not the case because despite not having any friends, I'm quite independent. I value my alone time & I've come to accept that I'd rather be alone than be surrounded by girls who I have nothing in common with & aren't supported of me.
I do have some female 'acquaintances' but I wouldn't say there friends or best friends & we only have a small portion of thing's in common.
I tried online apps at one point to make female friends but most of them disappeared not too long after. I also hung out a few times with a few of my clients from work & most either stopped hanging out with me or moved away.
I honestly feel there is nothing wrong with me. I'm really fun, outgoing, I have a sense of humor, I'm adventurous, I'm confident with my looks & my personality, I'm humble, introspective, I have my own interests yet a lot of women never seem to relate to me & Ive come to the conclusion that some may feel intimidated by me esp the ones that have body issues. I tend to be drawn to older music as opposed to what's out there today. I don't like gossip, I hate drama, I'm very chill, loves nature & animals.
I'm not sure if my area has anything to do finding quality friends? I think some girls label me weird but I'm not weird, I'm just different & my interests differ from theres. I know there's hipsters out there but I don't quite align in with them either. I'm just kind of my own person.
To describe myself in short I would say: I'm kind, I'm pretty, I'm laid back, unpretentious, I listen mostly to classic rock, indie, 80s & 90s. I don't really follow popular trends like the latest celebrities or popular musicians, I'm carefree, a free spirit if you will, an old soul, hopeless romantic, I collect vinyl, I love hikes, the beach, traveling when I can, huge animal lover esp dogs & cats, I am not vegetarian or vegan although I do try to use products that are cruelty free, I'm an esthetician, I can be silly & witty but also deep & melancholic. Psychology, sociology & philosophy fascinate me. I'm very loyal & generous when in a relationship. I've been hurt a lot in the past so it can take me a while to fully trust someone. I go off of vibes about people unintentionally whether I want to or not. If someone's energy feels off to me (untrusting) I immediately become somewhat aloof & reserved. When I'm around peoples energy that feels good to me (trusting) my personality comes out & I am warm & bubbly. That's about it I think.

It feels like fluffies are used in almost everything these days.
From dominating the media and entertainment industry to food being made for them to even being made into food themselves.
It feels like so long since you could meet anyone who has never heard of them or had their lives affected or seen them in day to day life.
With how ubiquitous they are, people have seized on the chance of owning multiple fluffies throughout their lives.
And there’s a community out there determined to make a quick buck from them.
Though a lot of the environmental authorities tell you to spay them or neuter them, the majority of owners don’t for various reasons.
Some because of how fragile fluffies are anyway, some because they believe it’s a cruel practice to them, some want to see their babies and have a fluffy baby of their own.
And then some of course, want to sell their babies and do what pet shops do (except they’ll do it better and quicker!)
But did you know there’s also a small community of people who try to make a few bucks from growing their own fluffies without selling their young.
There’s a whole community of people who grow fluffies to produce something else.
In fact, they produce this more than they produce young.
Ethical gardeners and allotment keepers use fluffies as a quick way to make manure for fertiliser. The fluffies are never fed that overly salted fluffy kibble or that worse crap that is fluffy flakes.
Fluffies used are exclusively fed root vegetables and other food waste. As they can’t break down the nutrients in the food, it instead comes out as a sludgy, nutrient rich manure that can be used to grow plants with.
And coffee. Particularly to use to ground coffee beans into the mix.
There’s a surprising amount of people who’d drink it too. Think guano coffee, but far less exotic and much cheaper.
An old hipster named Mark had used fluffies with this in mind.
He had rescued a herd that had wandered up to his door. He was alone in the house so why not? They weren’t really much trouble.
His job meant that he was able to bring home a lot of food that would’ve went to waste. The smarty, his special friend, their Babbehs and the poopy friend and wingie friend all accepted the food with gratitude.
It was a pretty good side gig. Feed the guys, let them do their thing, grab the manure and bag it. Profit.
He was such a hugboxer, he hated the abuse that they suffered, and selling their crap to people who wanted to use it to ground into coffee became his own private joke.
It was just him and the fluffies. His place was pretty out the way. No one could complain about the smell. His fluffies and himself would be left in peace.
In fact he had a few days off, he could finally do some work around the place. The fluffies were in their outdoor pen, he avoided calling it a sty, and he had filled the trough full of boiled vegetables and other cut up fresh foods. Perks of being a grocer, if no one else wanted it he would take it.
And the fluffies were all too happy to accept the food from him.
The smarty and the mare looked up and were so happy that their Daddeh was giving them the most delicious nummies.
They had been out on the street for some time. Both the mare and smarty had been kicked out of their homes. Mare was a soon-mummeh. It felt like every Daddeh didn’t want to give time nummies.
But their new Daddeh did! He gave them a nice place in the garden and the mare was able to have biggest poopies. The herd felt a sense of relief, they had been saved. Saved from the horrible streets.
They could be the way fluffies should be and play in happiness and be nice. Even if they were playing in poopies.
None of them knew why he wanted them to make as many poopies as they could but the smarty made sure the small herd ate everything.
The foals in the pen were still unweaned and their mummeh became so fat but she made so much milk for them. None of them were left without milk.
Mark was apprehensive about keeping them in there, but when separating the mare and the smarty from their young got them distressed. Mark kept them in.
At least they could make small poopies. The more poopies the merrier. And more money by weight.
Fluffies hate their own poopies and know we don’t like them. So they poop as we demand them to so that they can be good.
There’s whole online articles and studies of the fluffies’ obsession with poopies.
They hate the smell of course, the fluffies in the pen were no different, but they were getting nummies and had a home. That mattered more.
They could have all they could want, but they needed to make Daddeh happy with their Goodest poopies.
Today Mark had done the garden work and had pulled up weeds and plants that could go in the trough with the fluffies. He had been boiling carrots, rutabaga, cabbage, sprouts, cauliflowers.
He boiled them so they were soft enough for the fluffies to eat safely. He checked if it was mushy enough and left it to cool and then served it in their trough with the weeds and plants.
“Tank oo su vewy much fo nummies Daddeh” the smart chimed. He sat on the spot, tail wagging in the filth, the herd soon joined in with the cheers as they always had.
In the morning they'd been given grassie nummies and hay and now they were ready for the main course. They had been playing with various old soft toys, a ball, the smarty had his blockies.
Mark had filled the trough up and spread it along. He laughed and smiled with joy and pride, he never thought it would ever go this well. He had been making good money from this, and he hadn’t been doing it long. He could afford a night out, a date, a better phone.
He wasn’t watching what he was doing though. And he didn’t wear appropriate foot wear to step into a sty.
Did you know that fluffy crap is very slippery? And it sticks to objects. And if you were to step on some blockies you may well slip?
Mark found out the hard way.
He slipped on the smarty’s shit-coated blockies and took a fall back. His head landing against the metal trough.
The fluffies ran back to the corner of the sty, the loud bang had startled them.
Mark lost consciousness and bled out from his head wound. He would soon stop breathing.
The fluffies had walked over to their Daddeh. The smarty called out “Daddeh?”. And then the herd joined in.
“Daddeh?” “Daddeh hab boo-noo juice? Wan huggies?” “Daddeh?”
Then a number of them began to cry. Daddeh wasn’t talking to them, were they bad fluffies?
The smarty realised they hadn’t ate all of their nummies. Maybe if they ate them all and made poopies, Daddeh would speak to them again.
And they went around his body and finished the rest of the food off.
They then began to prod his body sigh their front hoofsies. The mare had got herself onto his body.
“Daddeh! Daddeh! Daddeh! Daddeh! Daddeh! Daddeh!! Daddeh!!!”
Each time became more panicked. Daddeh wasn’t talking to them.
The fluffies began to cry. Not even Huggies could cure the heart hurties they had.
They stayed as they were, being miserable in their filth. The foals couldn’t understand and were comforted by the mare.
The night came and the morning passed. They were beginning to get hungry now. The wingie friend and Poopie friend were starting to feel the pains of hunger. The foals has suckled their mummeh for milkies.
The poopie friend had checked the trough for nummies. Daddeh still hadn’t got up. The poopie began to cry out that there was no nummies.
He began to look around, look around, was there any food. And then he realised, food was all around them.
The poopie friend had previously ate faeces before. He hated the taste but he was so hungry. He walked over to the spot where the smarty had dropped its filth and began to eat away. He teared up while eating.
And then all of a sudden, he was attacked from behind.
The Smarty had gave him sorry hoofies.
“Nu!! Nu dummeh!! Nu nummies!! Dey poopies!! Dey fo Daddeh!!! Dey gud poopies fo Daddeh, nu nummies!!!”
Crap had dribbled out of poopie’s mouth and he cried and he found a corner and hunkered himself down. Blood was dripping from his nose from the attack. He had nearly had his face planted in the filth.
The foals had finished suckling their Mummeh and were ready to play. A foal had wandered a little too far from where it had been playing close to its Mummeh side.
Another fluffy wanted to play with him, the wingie friend, she was so lonely and hungry and she wanted to play.
They played for a while, well huggies is a game to a fluffy.
And then the foal was gone. The wingie had took a bite out of its head unexpectedly. The mare had seen this and began to scream. The foal’s body was hanging out of the wingies mouth.
She needed more nummies!!
She walked up to another foal and stomped it and took more bites. She was so hungry. The babbehs were so tasty.
She let out a low growl and blood and fur was hanging from its mouth. The mare let out a scream and the foals hid behind their Mummeh. The mare began to beg for Daddeh to save them!! The smarty and the poopie began to cry and began to run around the pen.
They were so scared and the wingie was so scary.
Did you know that female fluffies, the mares, are more likely to go cannibal? They also change a little and become predatory.
The wingie began to attack the mare to release the Babbehs. She stomped on her face and the mare became more bloodied. She wailed during the attack. Why wasn’t Daddeh saving her?!
The foals began to scatter and cower. The wingie managed to pick one off and eat it’s head leaving only its torso behind.
The last two foals ran to the smarty for protection. The wingie made an attempt at a lunge at the smarty, who flinched and his front limbs flailed as he cried out in fear.
He was saved by the slippery faeces on the floor. He slipped and his body landed on the wingie. The wingie’s face had landed in a pile of crap. Their bodies flailed trying to get up. The wingie would drown in faeces. The poopie had to help the smarty onto his side to get up.
Wingie was dead now.
Sometime later, the fluffies were still hungry. No one had come to their rescue. The mare had eaten the remaining corpses of her children to feed her last two milkies.
The smarty began to eat at the corpse of wingie. And poopie began to eat more poopies. Unfortunately for him, the smarty stopped him from eating any of the poopies and kicked his nose and pummelled his body.
No one would eat the poopies meant for their Daddeh!!
Over the next few days, there were no more edible parts left of the wingie and they began to spoil and stink worse.
Their Daddeh was also beginning to decompose. The stench was the foulest smell and far worse than poopies. The fluffies had no more tears for their abject squalor.
The mare had no more milkies for Babbehs and she realised she had to eat her babbehs for more milkies.
The last two had been asleep and she ate them. They cried their final tears and wails once she bit into their skinny, squalid bodies. After the two had been eaten, she looked around for her Babbehs and began to panic. All her Babbehs has left her, she was a bad Mummeh and she cried and wailed.
She had eaten the last two Babbehs and had forgotten the others were dead.
She began to cry out for her Babbehs. Had they really left her? Was she a bad mummeh? She had all the milkies to give. Why wouldn’t Daddeh tell her she was a good Mummeh?
The following day, the mare had eaten part of the wingie’s corpse but had swallowed a bone causing her to choke. Though fluffy bones are notoriously brittle fluffies are notoriously weak. Her body convulsed from the choking and her bowels expelled the faeces that were stored.
Hours later, the smarty had begun to eat the mare, what was once his special friend. There were no babbehs now, there were no other mares to be special friend now. It was just Daddeh, the smarty, the poopie friend and the good poopies.
The smarty was very hungry and he had managed to bite away into the stomach and pull out the intestines.
Tummy Sketties. He was so hungry, but sad too. They were all trapped in the pen and Daddeh had forever sleepies. And now he was eating his special friend. His tear ducts had long run dry, a dried up mucus forming underneath, he was now showing signs of infection and he couldn’t see that well through his see places.
The poopie has been watching the smarty eat the tummy Sketties. His foul mouth drooled, he had been eating only poopies. He really wanted some of the tummy Sketties.
He tried in vain to wedge himself between the smarty and the carcass. He was met with sorry hoofies from the smarty and was bitten on the face.
The smarty could smell poopies everywhere now. He was angry and began to scream. He began to stomp against Daddeh, who had now looked far more like a corpse, he stomped and stomped and threatened sorry poopies.
And then he stopped with a shudder. And begged Daddeh for forgiveness. He was in hell now, the smell was unbearable and he didn’t want to be there any more.
The smarty slumped himself on the ground next to his Daddeh. He whispered over and over “wan die”. He couldn’t take this place anymore.
The poopie had finally managed to get his tummy Sketties instead of poopies. He was surprised there were poopies in them but he didn’t mind as they were Sketties.
And soon the mare was nothing but badly spoiled meat and bones.
The smarty and the poopie had been in there for over a week and no one had come by to find Daddeh. There would be no new Daddeh to save them.
The smarty had stopped eating the mare meat whereas the poopie had also been eating poopies.
Both of them looked unhealthy in different ways. The smarty had gone blind in one eye and had become far more disheveled and thin. His head remained bowed, he had given up, but he was beginning to show the signs of derp.
The poopie friend had fattened to some point from the meat of the corpse and the poopies.
The smarty had given up stopping him from eating them. He had begun to eat his own faeces in desperation.
The poopie looked ill and was beginning to derp and suffer pains. He had been eating infected meat and poopies exclusively.
And there was very little left to eat in here, beyond poopies. Both of them would be dead soon. But was there anything to eat in here beyond poopies?
The smarty had always lain by his Daddehs side since he fell. The poopie had stayed away from the smarty. He remembered the hurties he got from him.
But that was forever ago. Why was smarty keeping the food for himself?
The poopie began to bite at Daddeh’ belly. He had gone full savage, his weak jaw tearing loose bits of flesh trying to dig into the belly for the tummy Sketties. The decay of the body didn’t stop the poopie.
The smarty, disgusted, began to flail but the derp stopped him from hitting the poopie. The poopie, in response, wanted to hurt the smarty for interrupting. Both of them flailed at the other and clumsily walked into the other.
The smarty took a hit to the head and ribs. He was more dazed than he should have been. It looked like the poopie would get the Daddeh nummies all for him-
The poopie was kicked away from the body. It was a Daddeh! A new Daddeh had come to save them!!
A mummeh was looking over too. She began to vomit upon the stench of the body and the fluffies. She began to dial emergency services.
The new daddeh covered his mouth with his arm to stop himself from vomiting. He had noticed the carcasses and the bones of the fluffies in this shit heap, and they had begun to eat at Mark when no other food was available. The filthy poopie one’s mouth was completely covered in blood.
The poopie was so happy to see a Daddeh. But why did Daddeh kick him? He raised his arms up weakly for huggies. The Daddeh instead hit him multiple times over the head with a shovel and impaled his body with the sharp part.
The smarty had been flailing since he went to the floor. His derp meant he wouldn’t be able to get back up unaided. He had signs of bruising and infections, he didn’t have that long left. His tongue stuck out of his mouth and he couldn’t speak anymore, he really wanted Huggies and to thank Daddeh for saving him.
The Daddeh raised the shovel over his head and took one whack to the smarty’s head. The skull exploded upon impact and bits of his head went everywhere.
The Daddeh got himself out of the pen and found tarpaulin to throw over Mark’s body, keeping him covered ready for the authorities.
He looked like he’d been dead a while. He put his head in his hands, he had been meant to be helping him out with the manure business but he made up an excuse not to come around.
He reasoned with himself, had he come to see Mark on the day he’d probably still be alive.

2020.08.12 20:12 curiousrambutan I’m 35, married, with $300K HHI and lives in SF
Assets and Liabilities
- Cash $145,000
- Retirement 👵🏻 $600,000
- Brokerage $15,000
- Home value $1,100,000
- Mortgage -$660,000
- Net Worth $1,260,000
Our retirement balance is from 13 years of 401(k) and Roth IRA when we qualified- contributions plus the general growth in stock market.
My family gave me $160,000 total over a few years which I’ve used for wedding and parts of a down payment and tuition. My parents believe in helping kids “get started” if they are able, which they were, and so they did.
We bought a tiny condo in SF a few years ago and I’ve kept the home value about the same as our purchase price. With Covid, maybe the value has dropped? I don’t want to think about it.
We built 90% of our net worth after we got married, finances combined. Income
Our combined salary is $315,000 (roughly 60/40 me/husband), plus $40,000-$50,000 in RSUs a year. We both work in tech. Our total take-home is pay split across multiple joint and separate accounts - I actually don’t really know how much it is. 🙈 I calculate our two big expenditures: housing and retirement, as a % of gross salary as a guideline (18 and 21 respectively). We share our condo with a roommate who pays $1,950 a month.
Regular deductions Aside from FICA and state taxes, our biggest deductions are retirement accounts. We max out 401(k) at $19,500. This year I have access to an after-tax 401(k) with in-plan conversion, and I’m saving $25,000 in that. Our employers pay for our health insurance premiums. Monthly expenses = ~$7,500
- 🏠 Housing (mortgage, HOA, parking, gas, electricity) $3,500
- 🏦 Property taxes $1,200
- 📞 Phone, internet, memberships $300
- ☂️ Insurance (condo, auto, umbrella) $330
- 🍱 Food $1,000
- 🎟 Fun, travel and transport $600
- 🧻 Everything else (e.g. 🐶, accountant, prescriptions, copays, clothes, gifts and donations) $600
Pre-Covid, our travel expenses were higher but food expenses were lower because I was more motivated to save money for travel. What We Spent Last Week
I’ll focus mostly on spending activities but also include instances that prompt me to think about finances. Saturday:
4:00am: 🐶🤒 Wake up to the sound of our dog vomiting. Husband spends next 4 hours cleaning after repeated bouts of doggo GI distress while I sleep. I call urgent care at 8am
10:00am: 🥖☕️ Lattes and scones at hipster cafe while we wait for urgent care. Dog throws up for the 8th time. $24
11:45am: 🏥 Exam and diagnostics at urgent care. An hour later, labs come back - inconclusive, except “it’s not pancreatitis!” They prescribe a bland diet and monitoring. $463
4:00pm: 🍰🍓 Pick up cake and strawberries. My soul is soothed. $30
8:00pm: 📺 Netflix and chill for the rest of the evening. I try to remember what we did on Saturday nights Before Coronavirus, and realized with a start that I can’t remember at all. 😭
Total: $517 Sunday:
10:00am: 🥑 🍳 Avocado toast topped with sautéed bell peppers an over-easy egg. I think avocado toast is the highest ROI home cooking: little effort, big reward.
12:00pm: 🧺 I vacuum, laundry, steam mops while husband goes for a run. 🏃 Would vacuuming will be more fun with a Dyson?
2:30pm: 🐶 Grab some pet supplies. $14
3:00pm: 🦐 Pick up prawn chips from a local market during a walk by Golden Gate Park. SF. $11
6:00pm: 🥡 Chinese takeout before a quiet night in. #cantstopwontstop comfort eating... $36
9:00pm: 🔥Goes down reddit rabbit hole reading about FIRE while Husband works. Can we FIRE in SF without the startup lotto or making VP at big tech?
Total: $61 Monday:
6:00am: 💩💩💩 I clean up after dog before hopping on the laptop.
12:00pm: 🌯 Lunch from my favorite burrito place. $16
4:00pm:🍷 Coworker mentions he bought a second house in wine country. No, green’s not a great color on me.
7:00pm: 😡🤔 Downstairs neighbors are having a party - in the middle of a pandemic. I love many things about our condo but I’m ready for a single family home.
8:00pm: 💕 I call Mom. I fill her in on dog’s medical travails and my terrible diet. She tells me to stop worrying so much and to eat whatever I want. I mention I want a Dyson and she suggest I get a Roomba instead.
Total: $16 Tuesday:
7:00am: 🇬🇧 🇫🇷 🇩🇪 Meeting with the European team. We talk about our governments’ responses to Covid and upcoming vacation plans. Not mine, because I’m too risk-averse. Is it even worth spending $$$ at a hotel if I have to bring my own pillowcases and sheets?!
5:00pm: 👩💻Wrap up work for the day. I like my job and team and I’m very grateful for that. If work is always this great, I won’t feel (too) bad I can’t FIRE.
8:00pm: 🍨 Facebook ad tells me I get $10 off for a 3-flavor bundle of specialty ice cream: lychee, matcha, and black sesame. I crave, therefore I cave. $35
10:00pm: 🏡 My friend texts me a picture of the house she’s bidding on. She says she feels poor in the Bay Area. Haha she makes more than I do, but I get it. Swim in your own lane, I tell myself.
Total: $35 Wednesday:
7:00am: 🐶🤢 Find a small pile of vomit on the carpet. Again!!! More cleaning before work.
2:00pm: 🏥 Take doggo to her regular vet for follow-up exam, labs, and flea and tick medication (that cost $90!?!?? Next time I’m trying the online pharmacy). They give me a fecal sample cup so we can do a stool test. $197
6:00pm: 💉 I put in a request to city services to remove a syringe needle on the sidewalk. There are joys of living in SF and there are “joys.” This is the latter.
7:00pm: 🥡 Husband and I talk about finances over takeout. As CFO of the joint enterprise known as our marriage, I update him on our retirement and cash balances. We decide we’ll put focus on increasing our cash cushion instead of extra mortgage payments. $50
9:00pm: Roomie plays with dog in kitchen while I look up dog foods. Is a $4 can that much better than a $2 can?
Total: $242 Thursday:
8:00am 💩 Doggo does the deed. I drop off the fresh sample to the hospital so they can check for parasites. $73
1:00pm: 🐶 Pick up food for the dog. $16
2:00pm 🛒 Our afternoon Costco date. Pre-pandemic, we love going to Costco. Now, my motto is “get in and get the F out.” I normally order delivery but Husband really misses going to stores in person. We get groceries - eggs, bell peppers, ground beef, milk, a ton of snacks - plus 3 boxes of surgical masks. $156
8:00pm: 🔩Ikea furniture assembly. We realize we’ll need stud finders and leveler - orders some from Amazon. $30
9:00pm: 💕 Catch up with mom. When I was growing up, she was fairly doom and gloom about money (or the lack there of). I internalized a fair bit of anxiety. Now she tells me to enjoy life, think of happy things, and don’t work so hard.
Total: $276 Friday:
8:00am: 🏨 I call our lodge at the Grand Canyon and cancel our reservation for September. I booked this trip a year ago but I’d don’t feel safe enough to fly. We’ll get a full refund.
4:00pm: 🏥Back to the vet hospital, this time for a nail trim. I tried to cut the dog’s nails at home - an experience that traumatized us both. The vet gives me her stool sample results: she has a low level of a common bug. The vet recommends we monitor for a few more days. $25
4:30pm: 🌮 Pick up a taco on the way home because I’m feeling snack-y. $8
7:30pm: 🍗 Go back and forth on takeout. Decision fatigue is real but sometimes it saves money. We put frozen chicken tenders in the oven.
9:00pm: We watch Netflix before bed.
Total: $33 Total for the week: $1,149, of which 64% is for dog’s medical expenses.
Reflection: This has been an extremely expensive week due to the dog’s illness. She’s an older dog we adopted with the thought of giving her a good retirement life. I knew there would be some medical expenses. But I didn’t quite expect how quickly costs accumulate even for what turned out to be a non-critical illness.
I’ve also started reading a little more about the FIRE movement. I love a solid health insurance plan so I don’t see myself voluntarily leaving that setup. But having the financial independence to not have
to work sounds pretty sweet.

2020.07.30 00:21 HonestMission An LGBTQ culture and media starter pack (not a question; LONG list of recommendations)
Hi! I've recently noticed that there has been several posts from gaybros who seem to feel really disconnected from and disengaged with the LGBTQ community. That's understandable, especially when these uncertain times mean that most people aren't in a good frame of mind or at their best.
Seeing that we're all socially distancing, and perhaps still under some form of lockdown, I thought that it would be a good idea to post a (warning: LONG) reading/watching/listening list, given that some of us have plenty of spare time on our hands. I hope that you enjoy discovering something new!
I love many items, and care a lot less for others, but I've tried to approach this objectively. Some music suggestions, btw, aren't by LGBTQ artists, but all of them have appealed varyingly to our community. I've also omitted the really obvious stuff, such as Brokeback Mountain, Madonna and Will & Grace etc.
Feel free to contribute and add your own favourites! A special thanks goes to my good friend, u/Manor4548
, for getting the ball rolling with his excellent suggestions. Also, if our excellent mods feel that this post in inappropriate, I'm more than happy to remove it. Please take care and stay safe! Books

2020.07.19 06:21 femmeofcenter In love with an ex I constantlysee
I hope you Mari Kondo fans are ready, because this is A MESS.
Sorry for any and all spelling errors. I was a few drinks in before I typed all this out.
I (nb 27) have been with my husband “Mark” (m 31) since we met the first weekend of college in the fall of 2011. I was 18 and he was 22. I was upfront with him that I want a poly/non-monogamist relationship. There was someone in my class I wanted to date, too (“Tony”, m 18 then). He was against the idea and I was with Mark and only Mark during the first few years of our relationship. I settled with the idea of liking Tony from afar.
Fast-forward to 2015-ish. Mark had been warming up to adding someone to our relationship, and I was really excited for this!! He mentioned that he was attracted to one of his coworkers at a pizza chain. We’ll call her “Dani” (f 21 back then) for this. She had a crush on him at the time, too. I worked next door at a local hipster grocery, so I’d see her around sometimes and thought she was cute, too. I approached her to ask her if she wanted to date us, and she confirmed that she liked us and we started a triad. At the beginning I remember having all this paperwork from scarlet teen and ethical slut for all of us to go over together and establish boundaries. I remember starting the relationship saying “our relationships would have an expiration date. After a while, though, I fell head over heels in love with Dani. The three of moved in together at an apartment. She was my maid of honor when Mark and I got married late 2017.
In January 2018, my godfather had passed away due to a stroke. He had been one of the foundational family members since before I was born. He not only baptized me and my siblings, he officiated my parents’ marriage and was the pastor of the church we went to. His daughter married my dad’s brother. Besides my grandparents, I saw him more than I saw my cousins. He was very important to me. Dani and Mark were at the funeral, along with a few of our friends.
In February Dani decided to breakup with us.
We were just roommates for a few months.
In late March 2018 my mom was put on hospice care for colon cancer. I took leave from work for a few weeks to help my family and Mark and Dani stayed at the apartment.
While I was away, my husband called me. He and Dani slept together and she wanted to get back together with us. I was 120% for it. I was that in love with her.
She broke up with us later that year.
I took it hard both times, but especially the second time. I had been fantasizing about our future together, getting a house for the three of us, having children together, all that nonsense.
Things sucked, living with her was okay, but in January 2019 my grandfather passed away. (For those of you counting, yes, three of the six people who were in my life since before birth passed away within a year)
I remember Dani and Mark holding me in bed as I processed just getting the news.
I guess during the time between our second breakup and February she got close to Tony, since he has been one of the main people in our friend group over the years. They went on a date together. Dani asked Mark to promise to tell me that it was not a date, but he decided to tell me the truth. I was devastated. Here are two people I was interested in, and they started dating.
I didn’t mention this earlier, but I had been talking with Dani about my interest in Tony even before we moved in together. Tony was aware that I was still in love with Dani because he was there when I drunkenly confessed that I was still in love with her and would do anything to get back together. This was the summer of 2018.
Mark, Dani, and I still had to live together until July 2019. We could not afford to break the lease and could only afford the place with our combined rent. She was a painful fixture in our lives.
Mark and Dani worked late jobs, while I worked until the late afternoon. I started abusing alcohol and started smoking after quitting for 5 years. I kept this secret from them for several weeks. Eventually they found me on our patio so drunk Mark walked me to the bathroom and I blacked out crying about Dani on the bathroom floor.
After Dani and Tony’s relationship became public to our friend group, it only got worse. I would bend over backwards for Dani and so would Tony. It became a joke to our friends that we could were both wrapped around her finger.
At this point I wanted to go as No Contact as possible while living together, but she would always text me to make sure I was okay at work. She genuinely wanted to stay friends and I was too obsessed with her admiration to say “never talk to me again”
We’ve all since moved to different areas, but our friend group had been meeting up every Sunday for games or movies.
Now that we don’t live together I want to commit to NC, but because Mark and I host our meetups, it would mean never seeing our friend group for a very long time.
At this point Tony and Dani have been dating longer than we did. I cannot be happy for them. They both mean so much to me, but I cannot keep seeing them together. It just tells me that I wasn’t good enough for either of them. I can spend time with Tony since I’m used to feeling about him this way and pushing those feelings into a box putting that box away in my mind. But with Dani every moment and interaction is simultaneously elating and devastating.
Everything I see online as breakup device says “cut them from your life” and I’m at the point that I cannot see her without eventually breaking out in tears and/or drinking to the point of passing out. As funny as it was to our friends in the beginning, now that my behavior has lasted a year and a half they’re concerned. Mark more than most, for obvious reasons
I think actually going NC for at least six months is the best for me. I can’t be friends with her because it hurts so much. I don’t have the emotional bandwidth to deal with seeing her. I feel elated and betrayed and twitterpated, furious, and other emotions I don’t know how to express. I have never been friends with my exes from middle and high school, and don’t have the toolkit to start now.
TLDR: How can I cut ties with someone I am in love with when she is one of my closest friends and 1/6 of my social circle?

2020.07.04 19:05 BitBitBitBite My Life on the Internet Dating Circuit: Pandemic Edition
This is the internet so I am sure there are going to be trolls and jerks trying to shit on this post but overall I think it’s an experience worth sharing.
After a two year hiatus from dating since my divorce and relocating back to the Chicagoland area I decided to put myself out there again and re-enter the dating scene. Prior to this I had been married for nearly a decade and since then had two children and up until this point have lived in three different cities; NYC, Jacksonville, FL, and now Chicago (ish). I actually had decent luck in the past with internet dating and even married the mother of my children after meeting her on OkCupid. Man, have things changed.
I decided to go with what worked in the past first and signed up for OkCupid. The app had totally changed and there was an entirely new layout and ridiculously high subscription rates for features that were free in the past. There are a thousand questions you can fill out to make it nearly impossible to match with anyone and based on your answers your matching percentage goes up or down. I am not sure what the science is behind this but since subscribing the past few months visual queues & questions are misleading. You can alter your answers to make it look as if you DO agree with a potential match which sort of defeats the purpose of being honest about the things that matter to you, but overall the questions are subjective and without meeting the person, can be totally taken out of context. Week One:
I had only been online for about a week and started sorting through profiles of women who I thought were on the same wavelength. I am kind of an aging hipster in my mid 40’s but unlike many hipsters my age, has had a successful career, and overall emotionally mature and responsible. I just like dressing casual, that’s all. I don’t know if I am as attractive as I was in my 20’s or 30’s but I have kept up well, stayed thin, and still have a full head of hair. I quickly re-learned what I didn’t like about the Chicago dating scene and built up a criteria of things I did not want in my next relationship:
My First Match:
- The Chicago Cubs! I might be one of the only people who grew up not liking baseball. I love playing softball summer league, but watching a four hour game that is slow as a turtle on acid is not my thing
- No Eastern European Green Card hookups. It was kinda overwhelming to see and have significant amount of Eastern European women from all over the area reach out and write me how they only had a few weeks left to stay in the states and would make a “loving partner’
- Anyone who’s watch Orange is the New Black (Season 1) knows that situation only provides for a horrible outcome
- Must match musical taste: I was in a marriage for nearly a decade where I was pretty much prohibited from listening to the music I loved; Artsy, Clangy, weirdo stuff that only so few appreciate
- If it’s played on B96, no thank you
Ok I’ll skip to the ending on this one. I totally blew it. After a decade of being out of the online dating scene apparently I didn’t know there were new rules or habits of online dating. First thing I learned was that some women will wait a day or so before responding to a match because they want to see how eager they are. There is also apparently a thing called ‘ghosting’ where someone will like you but not respond after matching. With both of these in place I made the mistake of purchasing “Read Receipts” that allows you to see that the other person has read your messages. After matching with “Joan” I wrote to her a few times thinking she was tethered to her laptop like I was. I saw several ‘reads’ but no reply. A few more days passed and I began to vomit my insecurities in message form (total bonehead move!) and nothing seemed to make her budge. She eventually unmatched me after I wrote her that the ‘ghosting’ thing was kind of a bummer.
It was a bummer and in hindsight it was probably for the best. Someone who doesn’t write back on a dating site after liking you comes off as kind of cold. As much as it is frustrating to get ghosted it’s probably good to know that though they might have shown interest in you there is something clearly on their end that they are dealing with and I don’t want any part of that. Expanding My Horizons:
After whiffing on OkCupid I expanded my horizons to the other big 3; Tinder; Match.com; Bumble.
Of the three I had more matches on Bumble. Women seemed to like my Wes Anderson references but other than that, after a message or two, it became a series of ghosting. I can say with certainty that I was ghosted at least 12 times on Bumble which statistically speaking is a lot. You only connect with those who might be slightly on your tip and I would have assumed 3 after my first round on OKC. I can’t tell if they liked me and didn’t read that I had kids or what but for whatever reason pretty much all the women, but one, ghosted me on Bumble.
Tinder wasn’t much different. I would match with a few women here and there but the difference would be that a few of them I actually had a decent connection with after a few chats. One went as far as adding me sending me her number & WhatsApp ID but after a few messages on there….you guessed it! Ghosted!
And you’re probably wondering “Well, what are you saying to these women?” As a father of two daughters I assure you I am not sending anything raunchy and only engaged in playful talk and if it ever got sexual it was initiated first by the women. There are probably a myriad of reasons someone ghosts you, and I am sure men do it too. I am a rational guy and know that perhaps they met someone, started chatting with someone, or just lost all hope in general and just gave up after matching with me. I am not bitter at all about any of this. Match.com had the most dates?
- You read that right. Perhaps it’s an age thing but Match.com generated the most dates. I am just as surprised as many of you may be. Match.com, and the overall experience, sucks. Anyone can write to you at any time. There are filters to prevent this but it’s so convoluted at first to figure out (by design) that you get all sorts of creepy shit. I am sure women have it a 1000 times worse but the overall experience is a bit over the top.
- Three Dates:
- I had more but the three listed are pretty much synonymous with my overall experience with the others. I have also altered their actual screen name for the sake of their own anonymity:
- “Kerry” - I had chatted with Kerry for about a week before we actually met. She seemed sweet and funny from her pictures and overall, esthetically was my ‘type.” We met at a bar in the Wicker Park area of Chicago and just before it happened there was a fight literally down the street. So as we were meeting there were cops and witnesses all gathered around us which was really distracting. She looked great but her overall personality, in person, was brutal. Not at all what I expected and though there is nothing wrong with her per se, I was not ready for what I was expecting.
- First she would not answer any questions I hads about her, which probably meant she wasn’t as interested after meeting me as well. She was like a little Latina conversational ninja when it came to the conversation and ducked out of every opportunity to learn something about her.
- I knew things were going sour so I suggested we go for a walk, to ease the awkward burden of saying “see ya” at the table and during so she went on to mention to me how she was upset by the BLM movement and that she didn’t agree with it. Regardless of your politics, at this point as a white man, I was like “Ok now I have to choose sides?”
- Upon leaving the date I went to at least kiss her on the cheek to say goodbye only to be met with a full head of hair on the back of her head.
- Perhaps the fist fights and cop lights were an ominous warning?
- “Joanne” - Joanne was nice. She checked all the boxes creatively and seemed entrepreneurial which I thought was pretty significant given my background in tech and having started my own business, that was acquire in the past:
- Upon meeting her she was attractive and as beautiful as she appeared in her pictures
- But she showed up in workout gear, and I know we’re in a pandemic, but overall it just felt lazy to not show up kinda dressed for a first date
- The deal breaker was when she told me she sided with Rachel Dolezal, the woman in Spokane, WA who notoriously was ousted from the NAACP leadership role after it was revealed that she was actually white. Rachel Dolezal’s defense was that she ‘identified” as black and Joanee was trying to convince me that maybe she was right?!!!
- “Frenchie” - Frenchie was interesting because early on, she also checked all the boxes on paper (and even liked metal?!!!). She liked to bike around town and was in a decent proximity to me so it seemed like this would have a decent shot. She said she was 5’ 8” which was a bit taller for my taste but she reached out to me so I gathered she knew what she was comfortable with. We dated for about 3 weeks before I called it off.
- Frenchie wasn’t French, German & Irish apparently. Frenchie is my favorite sub-character in Grease.
- French was my first COVID date, we agreed to meet with our masks on and decided to meet at a nearby cemetery given that they are typically a low traffic destination, especially at 7PM at night.
- When she got out of the car, she was easily 2 inches taller than she said on her profile. It didn’t bother me too much but I did think it was weird to meet a woman who lied about her height online when a lot of what I read was men pretending to be taller than they were.
- We hit it off well enough to continue meeting, she was learning guitar, I played guitar, and we both liked to ride our bikes around but she was super cautious about getting intimate because she had
- After a week or so we started getting intimate and it was awesome because I had been on a 2 year dry spell, however…
- After getting intimate she started clinging on a bit harder, too quickly. We were still getting to know each other and there is still that feeling when someone is hanging out with you for too much time.
- It started to feel like that friend of yours who asks to stay on your couch for a few days and ends up being there for a month
- Since this came into play I started mentioning that we’re still early in this and I need some boundaries at this stage because I am just getting into dating again and didn’t want to rush things
- After a few days we met up again. She mentioned that I wasn’t able to allow my kids to see/hang out with their cousins due to the risk of COVID 19, a HUGE RED FLAG went off
- I just started dating this person and she is already inserting rules that concerned the happiness of my children?
- Additionally, she was getting anxious about whether or not I was dating other people while we were getting to know each other
- After the red flags went off I pulled back a bit and limited our time together. After about a week of not seeing each other I went over to her place. I told her I we could hang out but I couldn’t sleep over because of some errand I needed to take care of early in the morning (which was true)
- She replied with “Because you don’t want to hang out with me?”
- I said “No, because I need to do xyz…” and followed up with “Why would you say that?”
- She muttered her reasoning on why I could sleep over but didn’t want to because of her
- This is where I had it. There were a few similar comments in between this and I kind of new it was time to end it
- I walked off the porch, got into my car, and drove off thinking to myself “yes, this is what you’re supposed to do when someone doesn’t respect your boundaries
While it was nice to meet and date a few people since my hiatus after being divorced I have come to realize that with the relocation back to Chicago, witnessing the COVID 19 scare and the Black Lives Matter movement, and having two kids now might not be the best time for me to get into a serious relationship. I need more ‘me’ time and revisit the things that made me happy when my prior marriage wouldn’t allow me to.

2020.07.03 09:29 SayingAndUnsaying Le Bon Motte
In the face of so many recent high profile self-immolations, I thought it might be a good time to do some musing about what this place is and what it’s good for. Apologies in advance for the rambling and the terrible organization; I pretty much always end up writing these things when I really ought to be doing something else, and wanted to put it up ASAP, so as the saying goes I didn’t have time to write a shorter post. Our sub has an interesting history. On the one hand, we clearly exist specifically because reddit’s SSC community needed a place where we were free to speak openly about politics (and, TBH, Voldemort). On the other hand, our mission statement is ostensibly to be
a place for people who want to move past shady thinking and test their ideas in a court of people who don't all share the same biases. I don’t think either of those really captures us. But I do think we’ve reached a point where our past is at odds with our present and, inshallah, our future.
The Practical Motte
Granted, we discuss the culture war a lot. But then you have stuff like
I could go on listing these for quite some time, (1) (2) (3) (4), etc., seriously just go look at the all-time top posts.
Is it any wonder that, when I found myself at loose ends in Hawaii, I thought “Man, I have got to tell the Motte about this!”? Though maybe that’s not a great example, because it sort of fits in with our origin story, whereas the point I’m trying to make with the others is that they don’t. And they don’t fit in with our mission statement, either. Yet they are somehow absolutely integral to what this place is.
I’ve been re-reading Neal Stephenson’s Baroque Cycle and can’t help but draw some parallels between the Motte and the Royal Society. Or perhaps some sort of enlightenment-era alchemical Hermetic order might be a better model. We’re intentionally hard to find. We shroud our identities in secret and meet underground to exchange knowledge which is either abstruse, but in which we have a shared interest, or else is outright forbidden. We put forth papers/effortposts for group consideration, analysis, and dissection. And we take great pains to avoid being outed as members of the brotherhood, because -- as on-the-nose as it is -- we have good reason to fear being burned as witches, and even talk about it in those terms.
Vitally, we have a shared (and now concealed!) esoteric literature in common, and I was amused to see Scott call it exactly that shortly after I’d started thinking of it as such. This means we enjoy a lot of shared understandings that don’t need to be constantly relitigated, such as memetic darwinism, political cynicism, and disillusionment with the Academy.
In a world where we almost can’t have real discussions with anyone else due to the sheer inferential gulf between us, we can have them here, with each other.
And we’re just dying to do so, for roughly the same reason that /atheism is a thing. Certainly we’re prone to bringing up certain red- and blackpills more often than is perhaps strictly appropriate. How can we not? We live our lives surrounded by people who are evidently insane, biting our lips, trying to smile and nod and just get through the day without going mad ourselves. So, yeah, sometimes I just need to scream, e.g., MEN AND WOMEN HAVE DIFFERENT REPRODUCTIVE INCENTIVES, so I come here and, pretty soon, a suitable opportunity usually presents itself. When the only thing stuck in your head is a burning need to blurt out what you truly think, it’s amazing how relevant any given conversation can seem. Hammer, nail, etc.
In some sense, then, we are necessarily a de-facto support group. It’s extremely common for me to hear about some news item all day, then cruise over to the Motte in the hope that someone else has already been galvanized into setting the record straight. Just for the sheer relief of dysphoria it brings me to see the matter presented in an informed, thoughtful, sane manner.
The Moderate Motte
We exist in a precarious balance between /SlateStarCodex on one side and /CultureWarRoundup on the other. Below us yawns the abyss of wider reddit beyond which the fell glow of general social media can be perceived flickering dimly in the darkness.
Seriously, have you ever been to reddit? I get so used to this lovely walled garden we’ve built that trying to read any thread on the front page usually results in me pulling one of these. Upon viewing Kathy Newman’s infamous interview with Jordan Peterson, my first thought was, “My God, this is the experience of years of trying to talk to people online distilled into a half-hour conversation.”
The difference is charity. There is an appalling lack of it pretty much everywhere. And this is not just tolerated, but encouraged and amplified! Go look at any other forum discussing why their outgroup says and does the things they do. At the horrific motivations they impute unto each other.
If there’s one thing we should strive not to be, it’s that. And, yes, this requires that we remain militantly on-guard against outgroup-bashing, or even outgroup-denigrating. The line between critical analysis and disparagement can be a fine one, but it absolutely must be walked if we don’t want to turn into /CWR, or if we want to maintain even any hope of diversity of thought.
The privilege we have of interacting in a space where we can pretty much trust that the people with whom we’re arguing will take the time to try to make sure they understand what we’re saying, and take care not to put words in our mouths, is quite simply priceless. And when it’s gone, I expect that it’s gone for good.
Meanwhile /SSC, once the mother country, has felt more and more like a foreign land to me with each passing month. I remember one occasion when I was about to jump into a conversation there when it hit me that I couldn’t even be forthright about my perspective on trans issues, because in that milieu it would be seen as backwards and assholeish and is explicitly proscribed at any rate. Importantly, the conversation in question had nothing to do with trans issues, and I had no intention of bringing them up, but just the realization, the sheer culture shock, stayed me. At one point /SSC was unquestionably my primary ingroup; these days it feels much more like an outgroup. It is no place for our societas eruditorum to conduct our affairs.
The Probative Motte
Another thing which unites us here is a nearly-pathological thirst for intellectual integrity, especially within our own heads. We are driven crazy by inconsistency, yet intelligent enough that we can’t help but find it everywhere. We have this maddening urge to pop the bubbles of wrong ideas even if they, and the people espousing them, are on ‘our side’. As TracingWoodgrains once put it,
We're a bunch of cranky contrarians (meta-contrarians? probably) who can't help but prod at everything whether it's a good idea or not. We can’t rest easy maintaining beliefs that we know might not be true, that we sense we might discard if only we could encounter someone capable of engaging us, someone perhaps more informed than we are. But anyone as afflicted by this condition as the representative Motte user knows that such people are damned near impossible to find.
Now, the Motte is a precious and probably irreplaceable resource for doing exactly this. Less than it was before we lost most of our lefties, and /SSC would unquestionably be the better forum for this purpose if it hadn’t been so hamstrung -- but we don’t have /SSC any more, and the Motte is still pretty good for it.
This is where our mission statement ought to come in. We are almost uniquely suited to be a testing ground for ideas, among exactly the sort of people we’d want for the job. But we aren’t that, because we’re not built to be. Hate to say it, but look, we cannot expect to become the net’s premier platform for refining one’s beliefs when we have intentionally structured our community around the one thing universally acknowledged to be the mind-killer. To be blunt, we are suffering from an overreliance upon political discussion.
(The evaporation of many non-grey viewpoints is a problem for obvious reasons. Much has been written about it and I don’t have anything new to add, so I’ll let it pass with only a mention for the time being. But it is important enough that it does demand the mention.)
Also, I don’t know about you, but I can go days without noticing a new top-level post outside the thread, because we all know that the thread is where the action is to be had. I’ve seen good posts get more or less starved to death, where I’m sure that if they’d been erroneously posted in the thread there would have been some fantastic discussion. My only thought is that perhaps we could have a parallel non-CW thread such that there’s a comparable, if inevitably lesser, flow of new content. Standalone top-level topics miss a lot of eyeballs, but if they’re all in one place, maybe not. This is also one of the most glaring issues which would need to be addressed on any potential future platform.
What I’d like to see is an intentional culture of putting forth things we believe but are less-sure about, with the explicit understanding that we’re admitting we suspect we might be wrong. These could range from small-scale to sprawlingly open-ended. I’m working on what I hope might serve as a prototype. Working title is “Power: What is it? Who has it? What do they want?” Because, if I’m being honest with myself, it’s pretty clear that my existing mental framework on the matter is egregiously out of touch with reality. I’d like to be able to post this tomorrow; we’ll see how that goes.
But other suitable questions might be “I’ve been operating under the impression that Roe v. Wade is responsible for a big decline in violent crime; is that position supported by the evidence?” or “Is Democracy just an illusion?” or “I’m planning on homeschooling my child -- is that a mistake?”
The point is to bring our weaknesses out into the open and work to correct them. This will also go a long way toward making new blood comfortable enough to contribute.
See, one drawback of our extraordinarily-gifted contributor base is that a lot of people are too afraid to join in the project. I have been contacted by something like five lurkers who have all said that they don’t feel smart enough to contribute, even at the level of replies.
In some sense this is understandable. A selection effect is created by virtue of people mostly only responding to topics on which they’re comparatively competent; to an observer, it must seem as though we are all frighteningly well-informed about everything. To all such people reading this: I promise, we’re really not. It’s an unrealistic standard that no one could hope to meet. Just jump in. My first several posts were pretty sub-par. One learns by doing. So do!
Summary and Suggestions
All maps are wrong; some maps are useful. I contend that all current maps of the Motte are woefully inadequate and that we need to completely reframe what we’re doing and why, if we’re to have any hope of keeping it alive. Therefore, I propose the following:
The Motte is an esoteric society and must be understood as such. Within that we have three major imperatives (in no particular order):
These things must be actively pursued, and everything else must flow from them.
- Incentivize the continued production of high-effort, high-quality submissions.
- Lean into our role as social club and emotional support for those dealing with the burden of verboten understanding.
- Serve as a crucible for refining our members’ thinking.
As to #1, we’re doing okay, though I think we could be doing a lot better. But we’ve almost entirely failed on #3, and up to this point the second half of #2 has actually been regarded as a bad thing! Most conspicuously highlighted by the tragic exit of Qualia_of_Mercy. In retrospect, we as a community, the Motte as an institution, and I in particular failed him, and have failed many others. If you’re reading this, buddy, please forgive me. I was so fixated on #1 that I couldn’t even see #2 as a valid goal, let alone one that might at times supercede #1.
As to pursuing these things, let’s take them in numerical order.
Incentivizing quality content is really hard to do on reddit. Maybe we’ll end up somewhere else where contributors actually get some sort of perks for their contributions, but I’m not about to hold my breath for that. Instead, I want to start up a patreon and outright commission people to write good stuff. I can fund this myself if need be -- there’s no chance of actually paying people what I assume market rates are for top-shelf prose and analysis -- but it’d be cool if others chipped in. Perhaps a project for this weekend. Seriously, what is this place worth to you? If it vanished, how much would you pay to get it back? That's how I'm looking at it, anyway. [EDIT: I didn't spend nearly enough time elaborating on this; see here.]
Sometimes I expect to approach people and ask if they’re interested in formally expanding upon certain topics to which I’ve seen them allude; e.g. 2cimarafa’s passing remark about her low regard for the Constitution. But maybe we could also offer (small) cash prizes for especially good stuff that turns up in the wild, as it were.
Esoteric societies sometimes have journals. I think we should start putting out quarterly publications. I already find myself thinking stuff like “Boy, I can’t wait to see KulakRevolt’s next column.” These would also showcase what we have going on and perhaps serve as a draw for valuable newcomers, now that SSC no longer exists as a suitable attractofilter.
Also, to be frank, we need to rethink our stance on consensus-building. Not in the general case, necessarily, but we should be encouraging people to make strong arguments in long-form format, perhaps collaboratively, with an eye to being able to cite them as we have previously done with Scott’s work. The Motte has put out some really cool stuff, but how often do we -- or anyone else -- link to it as foundational material for our conversations? Where is our Meditations on Moloch? Our Neoreaction FAQ? I know that the people here are capable of turning out such things. It’s high time that we start making our own meaningful contributions to the esoteric literature, such that rat and pararat communities across the interwebs know and
fear respect us, and incorporate our work into the canon.
Finally, as we bleed into imperative #2 (social club, emotional support), it’s just clear that we need different codes of conduct for different spaces. Qualia_of_Mercy should have had a place to rend his clothes and gnash his teeth. Yes, that sort of thing should be kept out of the more formal operations, but he put it where he did because he had nowhere else to put it.
To some degree we’re doing really well with the social club aspect. The Wellness Wednesday and Friday Fun threads are exactly the sort of thing we need, and the mods and contributors do a fantastic job of running them (shoutout in particular to j9461701!). In that capacity, the main adjustment to be made is just one of attitude. Let’s see this place for what it is and embrace it. And, maybe, a general/offtopic/informal thread is called for, but once again we run smack into the limitations of reddit.
Now, as for imperative #3 (i.e. what the sidebar says we are), I think we pretty much need to admit that we’re starting from square one and this is going to have to be built from the ground up. And, yes, the culture war thread is a problem. I don’t think we can just get rid of it, and anyway it’s too valuable to jettison, but it poses a direct obstacle to this whole notion of testing our ideas in an intellectually diverse environment. Yet again reddit rears its head. We can’t de-emphasize the thread, or even comparably-emphasize other threads, because of the hard limit of two stickies.
Well, what we can do is institute something like ‘Turnabout Tuesday’ where instead of arguing for our positions we argue against them. This is really intellectually healthy anyway, and might serve as a good opportunity to invite progressives into our project. “Hey, tomorrow I’m planning on ripping Western CivilizationChristianityThe Nuclear Family a new one, care to lend me a hand?” Now, that will get the ball rolling on testing our ideas. And of course everyone will be free to criticize those arguments, too. Or perhaps we might have a weekly event where user-submitted, mod-approved propositions are debated with participants randomly assigned to either side. There’s really a lot of potential in #3, and IMO the sooner we put something like this into motion, the better.
In closing, the last few weeks have served as an opportunity to do a lot of soul searching regarding this community and my relationship thereto. What is it to me, really? A bunch of pretentious internet degenerates circlejerking about social justice? And yet I keep finding phrases like ‘the light here kindled must not go out’ running through my head. As I take stock of the situation, weirdly enough, it occurs to me that somehow what I am is a patriot.

2020.06.12 17:26 nourishedshark2 Help for buying certain items in Rabat
I am a UK/Aus long term traveller currently locked down in Rabat without most of my usual gear.
When possible, I am looking to get certain things and need some local help locating them.
I am near parliament house and the main train station but can walk for 30 - 45 mins one way and don't really want to catch a tram.
Once the borders open I will be travelling to Casablanca for a flight out of here, so any options there would be also be useful if there is nothing in Rabat.
Note, I am nomadic, so won't be going 'home' after lockdown ends, but will be leaving Morocco and following all safety measures wherever I am.
- A haircut.
I am female and usually have my hair shaved on both sides, think Viking hipster, but less wanky. I've always done it myself and have never had to get it professionally done.
I usually have my owner clippers with me, but came to Morocco/North Africa in February just for a month, and left them behind.
I found clippers in Marjane but they are way too expensive for something that I will only need to use once or twice and of course then I'd need adapters to use them on my travels. I was thinking of a USB powered one, but haven't seen one around.
So, can I get a shave at a female hairdresser salon, or a male barber? Will a male barber serve me?
- A 25l backpack
For various reasons I left most of my things behind for this trip, and am travelling with just the 15l removable daypack from my larger Osprey backpack.
Since I have been here so long, I have accumulated extra items, including various liquids I don't want to waste.
I need a cheap backpack that I can put my existing one inside and still have room for the extra things, that folds up small when empty. This, the price, and the actual design are quite important as when I eventually get the rest of my stuff back, I won't be able to carry an additional backpack.
Decathlon have some possibilities listed online, but I need to check the fit before buying and the closest store seems to be too far away.
So, I am looking for a store that sells a large range of backpacks.
- Acupuncture / massage
I don't know if acupuncture is a thing here, but I used to get it done on my feet to help with circulation, along with a full body massage every month or so.
I've been travelling for over a year, and it's hard to do this, but with being cooped up for so long, I feel like I really need it now.
I went to a hamman in Chefchaouen before being locked down here, and there may have been a communication breakdown as I never really got a massage. Or are they just not the kind of western ( maybe it's eastern? ) massage I'm used to?
So, where can I get either acupuncture and / or a therapeutic massage?
Are there stores like Rossmann, DM, Priceline or Superdrug here? Kind of like a large supermarket style pharmacy that includes skin care, hair care, cosmetics, jewellery and all kinds of associated accessories.
I am looking for face powder, foundation and a red lipstick pencil.
I saw some makeup in Marjane today, but the range is small and didn't even have red in the pencils.
So, where can I see a larger range of make up?
- A sensible, helpful staff member at Citibank who speaks English
This is probably a long shot, but my debit/credit card is about to expire and Citibank in Australia, where my account is, are completely useless at assisting me in getting the new one.
Before I left I asked for a new one but they refused, saying any replacement card would have the same expiry date. They also couldn't tell me when they would send out the new card.
My original plan was to have the card sent to my mums house in Australia and have her send it to me.
But I'm not where I was planning to be now and postage is even more unreliable everywhere - I had a package sent from UK to here that never arrived so am wary of my card making it. I don't know where I'll be when they send it, or how long it will take to arrive.
There is a Citibank branch nearby, but it's always closed and I don't speak Arabic or French nor do I have a phone to call them.
So, is there anyone I can talk to about this?
Thanks to anyone who read this far, and many many thanks to anyone who can assist!

2020.05.21 09:53 SpiritofGarfield Season 5 Thoughts
Episode 1 - Wedding Day
Friends Title: The One With the Overly Done Makeup
Episode 2 - Good Man
- Hannah, come on, no boys allowed with the bridesmaids and bride. Why aren’t these things obvious to you?
- Shoshanna was such a solid friend for getting rid of Fran, but then frickin’ Marnie had to be all “You don’t have to leave if you don’t want to..” Seriously, chick.
- Adam is lookin NOICE this season. I always liked him with some facial hair.
- “This conversation sounds like an E. E. Cummings poem.” - Ray
- I don’t mind Jessa and Adam. Not at all.
- Push push in the bush. Nice euphemism. I need to start using that.
- Marnie, a bridezilla? 100% on brand.
- Look at Jessa and her character growth…I loved how she helped fix the makeup crisis.
Friends Title: The One Where Adam Murders a Carnival Prize
Episode 3 - Japan
- I don’t know about y’all but I like Fran’s roommate, Jacob. And it totally wasn’t cool of Hannah to call him crazy especially since he has mental health issues. I think she did all that to get Fran to stay at her place instead.
- “I’m her mother but she’s my mother, you know?” - I don’t think that’s how biology works, Caroline.
- Adam and his niece are too adorable. They should do a spinoff.
- I feel bad for Laird. Caroline is very grouchy and he’s so whipped it’s not even funny. (Update: Which after what happens later in the season, totally makes sense. Good foreshadowing here.)
- Nuh unh, hard pass, on this helvetica BS. How dare those evil baristas speak to Ray that way? How dare they?!?
- I wish my important errands to run was just going to a carnival. But not gonna lie that Jessa/Adam montage was super cute.
- Adam’s jumping like 10 stairs at a time…his energy level is insane. He totally shook that poor fish to death though. 🐠😵 and that sploosh sound when the bag hit the street..
- Corey Stoll and Adam Driver have done a lot of the same projects (Girls, This Is Where I Leave You, The Report)
- How does Hannah still have her job? This must be a very free-thinking school because anywhere else parents would have come for her head.
Friends Title: The One Where Adam Plays a Vagabond on TV
Episode 4 - Old Loves
- I want to live in Shosh’s home in Japan. It’s adorable.
- It’s not the worst thing he could do, but keeping old nudes of exes isn’t really healthy for the current relationship. And he should probably have a more secure place for that on his phone if one second Hannah’s looking at a kid and the next a full on nude woman.
- Yoshi’s cute but wasn’t Shosh with Jason Ritter? Why does one hot guy have to be sacrificed for another on this show?
- America, the country of sluts. I really do love hearing what other countries think about us.
- “When did you talk to Marnie?” “Don’t be thirsty, Ray!” - Elijah
- You live in America, Hannah. I wouldn’t consider your body type nontraditional.
- Ray and Elijah are solid friends helping Hannah take classy nudes for Fran.
- “Adam’s gonna be famous! Adam’s gonna be famous!” - I loved this because it’s true inside and outside of the show.
- I think the reason I’m liking this Jessa/Adam relationship is that it developed out of friendship and also that they didn’t meet and sleep with each other in the space of 10 minutes. I’ve always enjoyed a buildup to intimacy.
- “I wrote a haiku up here.” - Smooth, Adam, real smooth, but I’m genuinely enjoying Adam pursuing Jessa. He didn’t do this with Hannah or Natalia and we don’t know how he acted with Mimi Rose so it’s nice to see him on the chase.
- I don’t support what Hannah’s doing by deleting those photos but her running commentary as she’s doing it had me in tears.
- OMG, Shosh and Yosh. Rhyming names!
- In other news, Shoshanna is still a dick to her boyfriends. Poor Jason Ritter. 😔
Friends Title: The One With a Fight Over Rice Pudding
Episode 5 - Queen for Two Days
- I’m behind Hannah on the grading argument. Sometimes Many times getting the ideas out on paper is more important than grammar.
- Seeing Desi on the screen is physically painful to watch. I need him to leave or someone to murder him or for him to be abducted by aliens. He is terrible and I hate him with all that I am.
- “You smell like ham.” - Jessa about Adam - still wouldn’t deter me…
- I like Fran, but the fact he can’t correctly say a student’s name is beyond infuriating. How do you expect to build a relationship with the kiddo if you don’t attempt something as basic as pronouncing their name correctly?
- Fran is not as awesome as he was last season.
- So Jessa is really serious about this therapist thing? Good for her studying and everything!
- Val Kilmer and Cher were together back in the day? Did not know that.
- Is Elijah gonna date a non-douchebag this season? I’m so excited! Color me impressed with Dill. (Update: Dill might have been a douchebag.)
- “I’ve wanted this for a really long time.” - Jessa to Adam - Really? How long? Before the wedding? I would have loved more intel on this.
- After those Desi and Marnie scenes at the end, I feel Marnie’s gonna be a good mom because she’s really good at drying eyes and wiping butts.
Friends Title: The One Where Adam’s Not Sure What He’s Gonna Tell Coach
Episode 6 - The Panic in Central Park
- So Hannah’s parents are still boning after her dad’s big reveal? That’s…weird…
- I love how even Shoshanna’s walk has adapted to Japanese life.
- “I know what cat is. I’ve had a boyfriend.” Abigail to Shoshanna
- The blonde spin/yoga teacher is from Good Girls (which the first 2 seasons of were really good).
- This spa seems hellish. I don’t like being told what to do when I’m supposed to be relaxing.
- I’m glad Adam and Jessa were able to recover sexually from the disaster last week.
- I think that Jessa/Adam sex scene was the hottest one of the series so far.
- “Hand me back my phone. I do not want to have a physical tussle with you.” - Hannah to Nazi Spa Guy
- I am really digging Adam’s outfit when he meets Jessa’s sister. He’s dressing a lot better these days, but I did like his hole-y t-shirt and jeans phase.
- I think one of the kindest things Hannah’s ever done is smile warmly at the ditzy blond check when she said “I can make pizza.” while everyone else was thinking how dumb she was. I like Hannah more when she’s being empathetic.
- “You should have really hidden your drugs better.” Wow. Jessa’s sister is A-hole #762 to be on this show.
- Adam says some of the sweetest things sometimes. “Her perfect face is the least beautiful thing about her.”
- Yo, Adam don’t pay for her schooling though. You don’t know her like that.
- “Thank you for forcing me to eat this.”
- I understand Hannah’s mom’s decision. It seems like she doesn’t want to lose the companionship aspect of her marriage.
Friends Title: The One Where Marnie Finally Realizes Desi Is The WORST
Episode 7 - Hello Kitty
- Charlie? What has happened to thee? Why’s your voice so different?
- “I’d like to solve a problem like a Maria.” “Ew. That’s not even the right reference.” I know, Marnie. How dare they mix up Sound of Music with West Side Story? Totally unacceptable.
- Please get her some heels for that dress.
- I love the irony of Charlie pulling out a knife ready to fight one second and then preemptively taking off Marnie’s earrings before the mugger asked for them.
- Marnie saw what she wanted to this episode. She saw the Charlie she loved and remembered and ignored all the signs of how drastically he’d changed.
- Whew. At least after all that crazy we get rid of Desi.
- “Probably…you’re gonna get murdered. That’s how little of the sense of the world that you have.” Desi at his most astute
- So who’s marriage lasted longer? Jessa’s or Marnie’s?
- I was skeptical about a Marnie-centric episode but it was solid.
Friends Title: The One Where Sexually Harassing Your Boss Doesn’t Get You Fired
Episode 8 - Homeward Bound
- OK, so being mean to the teachers is the tipping point, Principal What’s Your Face? Not the SUPER inappropriate relationships she’s had with children?
- “Showing your vagina to your boss in not an OK thing to do.” - Thank you, Fran.
- Fran is saying all the stuff I’ve ever wanted to say to Hannah, but he says it all in a very annoying and condescending way.
- Ray, I’ve missed you my dear!
- Ray = these beyotches’ camp counselor
- Does Dill have a harem? Cuz that’s what it seems like.
- Sometimes the way Elijah stands reminds me of Pooh Bear.
- Someone’s gonna die to Marnie and Desi’s song on Grey’s?…I’ll allow it.
- It took me a minute but I get the title now.
Friends Title: The One With a Forest Break Up
Episode 9 - Love Stories
- Shoshanna’s back!
- Fran has a tattoo? That seems off brand.
- Post partum depression is a beyotch. That note Caroline left for Laird broke my heart.
- I think less of Ray for accepting a BJ from Hannah.
- I feel like the men on this show are given a bad rep sometimes. Every man will just sleep with any woman who hits on him. That paints men in a very poor light and isn’t realistic.
- “That’s why you have a sake gut.” - Shoshanna to Jason Ritter
- Why does Jessa have a flip phone in 2016?
- Jessa was unlikable this episode. Like your man is worried about his sister and her mental state and you’re worried about the heat and Hannah. They had so much potential but it’s ruined because of Jessa’s guilt about Hannah.
- “Why do you need more help than a baby?” The delivery of that line was ice cold and I loved it.
- That hitchhiking storyline changed from creepy to adorable within minutes. It was super cute how excited Huck from Scandal was about arriving in NYC.
- Sample > Jessa-Hannah Bluebell Poem
- I want to read Fran’s brother’s handwritten letter about how rude Hannah was.
- Fran’s response to Hannah’s style of breaking up was perfect. It ended with a big ol’ bang and a big FU. Perfection.
Friends Title: The One Where Love Said “Not Today, Elijah”
Episode 10 - I Love You Baby
- “You definitely would’ve sent witches to trial in The Crucible.” - Hannah to Fran
- Do not. Do not do the Ray and Marnie thing. I’m tired. I was for it season 3 but now I just want Ray to be happy.
- Shosh’s response to finding out about Hannah’s attempted BJ is the response Hannah should’ve had about Elijah/Marnie. Mild curiosity and then not wanting to know.
- Hannah apologized to her boss …very awkwardly…but it was an apology and a sincere one at that. I feel like the media should be alerted.
- It might be too soon to say this but I think Tandice and Desi are made for each other. I’ll allow Desi to stay on the show with the provision that he shares all his scenes with Tandice.
- “Someone less aimless.” - Ouch, that was brutal, Dill.
- Welp, Elijah put himself out there. He has nothing to be ashamed of.
- Those two baristas were so awful that I actually began to love them. Also, that poem was amazing.
- When Hannah isn’t being selfish, I genuinely like her. Like her opening up to Jean-Ralphio’s sister was a great scene. OK, now that you’ve articulated how you feel I can understand why you’re so hurt. You weren’t fully over Adam? Now, you’re feelings/reaction makes sense.
- “I want to brush your hair.” - Marnie to Ray (Ugh, I’m too old for this sh**.)
Friends Title: The One Where Ray’s Apartment Gets Demolished
- Hipster Hate angle - I like that Shosh, but that “Trust the Government” sign was a bit egregious.
- “I watched two Youtube videos about babies, Adam.” - Jessa, newly minted baby expert
- Yeah, Desi, someone’s dad dying IS pretty serious.
- Color me impressed with Hannah’s story. It was really good.
- Of course, she was happy that they were arguing about her. Wouldn’t be Hannah otherwise.
- Colin Quinn and Shosh dancing was precious.
- That fight scene was perfection. I loved every scary, intense second of it.
- My critique about the guys Hannah is with is never about the disparity in looks - it’s that she’s weird and self-centered and has a voice that is eerily without emotion and I find it hard to believe she’s been able to attract that many men with her personality.
- I say this as a woman, but Girl Code is dumb. Yeah, seeing a friend date your ex hurts but life happens, people connect, and if you’re not with that person anymore it really shouldn’t matter.
- Hannah is not a good friend to Jessa. Jessa is not a good friend to Hannah. I wouldn’t even say I think they’re that close. All this guilt about dating someone’s ex seems so silly in the grand scheme of things. It’s not like Jessa knew Hannah was still hung up on Adam (if she did then that would have been awful). Honestly, I think her setting him up with Mimi Rose before they’d officially ended was worse than her sleeping with him now.
- I do think it’s interesting that Hannah’s not physically causing problems for Adam/Jessa. Their issues stem internally from their own guilt.
- There’s a lot of comparisons online about Hannah and Adam - who is worse and whatnot - but it’s completely subjective. Adam’s biggest flaw is his anger while Hannah’s is her selfishness. Both of which caused considerable damage to Ray’s property, his apartment and his coffee truck respectively. These flaws have hurt or inconvenienced others many times over the seasons.
- Updated Character Ranking (Least Fave to Fave): Desi, Marnie, Jessa, Fran, Hannah, Shoshanna, Adam, Elijah, Ray
- Favorite Episode: Good Man or Homeward Bound
- Least Favorite Episode: I don’t think I had one.
- Season Rankings: 5 > 2 > 1 > 3 > 4
- Season 6 Wishlist
- Shoshanna and Ray endgame - I can’t explain it. I’ve been up and down about Shoshanna over the seasons but…It’s just what I want.
- For Elijah to have a purpose/passion and to find happiness.
- To see Adam.
That’s it. I don’t really care enough about the other characters to wish things for them. (Plus I kind of already know what happens with Hannah a little.)
