2023.06.02 16:49 QuentinTarantulatino I’m 10 years sober from alcohol today
I’m ten years sober today.
Not technically today; I’m writing this a couple days in advance. But one thing I’ve noticed about sobriety is that in the beginning, the timing of it feels very precise. You’re not two weeks sober, you’re a week and six days sober. You’re not a year sober, you’re eleven months and three weeks sober. Every individual hour of it that you live through in real time feels earned. But the more time goes by, the less disingenuous it feels to spot yourself some spare change in the name of convenience.
So, fine. I’m nine years and three hundred sixty-three days sober.
And after all this time, I still just want to drink.
That’s not even the addict voice talking. I don’t miss the days of being too drunk to function. I don’t miss the jump cut from the bar to waking up on a friend’s couch with a sense of guilt and dread that I have some apologies to make. I don’t miss being the guy that my friends had to stop having fun in order to take care of. I don’t need a sixth trip to the ER for alcohol poisoning under my belt.
Before my sister left for college, my cousin and I convinced her to get drunk with us at his apartment so that her first drinking experience would be in a safe, controlled environment. She got about three, maybe four drinks in, and when we offered her another, she said something like, “Nah, I think I’m good for the night.”
I was probably 6–7 drinks in at that point. And that was the first time I remember thinking to myself, Wait, people can just decide to stop drinking?
Or maybe a better place to start is: I started drinking my freshman year of college. And over that first semester, I realized that as soon as I had a buzz going, the only thing my brain could focus on was the next drink. And then the next one. And then the next one. And as a college student at a party school who’d fallen in with a particularly hard-drinking crowd, all I thought about it was, “Wow, all those commercials saying to ‘drink responsibly’ weren’t kidding.”
I have no urge to start drinking. But I wish every day that I was one of those people who could drink responsibly. Who could have a beer after work without physically craving another. Who could have asked a girl out for a drink. Who could partake in an open bar at work events or office happy hours or weddings (or at my niece’s baptism, for some reason).
The thing that you really don’t notice until not just quitting drinking, but having to build a sober life and live it, is that the whole damn world revolves around alcohol. And for someone as socially awkward as I am, I really resent that I don’t get that “lube,” that shortcut to camaraderie and chemistry. I just get to sip my water and watch everyone else get shitfaced and sit there smelling the whiskey and wine on their breaths and wonder when I get to go home and not have to wish that I could just be like everyone else.

2023.06.02 16:46 wakeuptomorrow Guy I’ve been seeing doesn’t close the lid before flushing and my attraction towards him just went down
This is a major dealbreaker for me. It might seem really trivial but it honestly disgusts me so much when people don’t close the damn toilet lid before flushing. Are guys not aware of the scientific testing that shows how much shit sprays out of a toilet when flushing?
He stayed overnight at my place for the first time and I went to use the bathroom and the lid and seat were both up. My toilet is facing in a way that if someone flushes with the lid up, it sprays all over my shower mat.
I sent him a text about it playfully telling him to close the lid before flushing. He’s a major jokester so he replied back that it’s the law that men don’t close the lid. I personally don’t find this funny. It’s disgusting and unhygienic and in the past it has helped me define who is a boy vs who is a man.
I’m seriously considering not seeing him again because it bothers me so much. Is this a hill you ladies (or lurking gents) would die on?

| || | submitted by LeonardoRHGG to GGNewsChannel [link] [comments]
Há 22 anos,em uma manhã que mudaria a história dos Estados Unidos e do mundo para sempre, as Torres Gêmeas do World Trade Center foram alvo de um atentado terrorista que chocou o planeta. Às 8h46 da manhã do dia 11 de setembro de 2001, um avião comercial sequestrado pela organização Al Qaeda atingiu a Torre Norte do World Trade Center, seguido por outro avião que colidiu com a Torre Sul às 9h03. Em poucos minutos, a estrutura das torres foi comprometida e elas desabaram em meio a nuvens de fumaça, poeira e escombros.
O ataque deixou quase 3.000 mortos, incluindo civis, bombeiros, policiais e equipes de resgate. As imagens dos aviões se chocando contra as torres, a queda delas e o caos que se seguiu ficaram gravadas na memória de todo o mundo e tiveram um impacto profundo na política, na economia e na cultura global.
Atentado Torres Gêmeas Remembering September 11th - Twin Tower Attack
22 years ago, on a morning that would change the history of the United States and the world forever, the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center were the target of a terrorist attack that shocked the planet. At 8:46 am on September 11, 2001, a commercial airliner hijacked by the organization Al Qaeda hit the North Tower of the World Trade Center, followed by another plane that collided with the South Tower at 9:03 am. In a few minutes, the structure of the towers was compromised and they collapsed amid clouds of smoke, dust and debris.
The attack left nearly 3,000 dead, including civilians, firefighters, police and rescue workers. The images of the planes crashing into the towers, their collapse and the ensuing chaos were etched in the world's memory and had a profound impact on global politics, economics and culture.

2023.06.02 16:42 shesaysitalive Bf gets defensive when I bring up race incidents
My bf(28) is white & I'm (28) Hispanic. I went garage sale shopping & I live in the Midwest. The further west you go the more white populated it gets. I was out west because Facebook marketplace shows where gales are. Anyways this lady is following me around as I look around at the garage sale. She's white & there are two other shoppers there that are white as well. For some reason she follows me around though. I notice it & get annoyed because I've had this had alot growing up in the Midwest. She looks annoyed that I am there with my son. My son is 3 & she keeps side eyeing him like he's going to steal something. I've had this happen to me many times growing up in the Midwest. People have done this to my parents. It shocked me & maddened me because I'm almost 30 years old & here it is happening to my son & I. I told my SO about it & he immediately got defensive & said that I didn't know her intentions. He does this everytime an incident happens so I stopped telling him about it but I was really hoping he'd try comforting me because it made me so upset I cried when I was telling him the story. How do I help him see that all I want is comfort & that I'm not blaming him for these incidents?

2023.06.02 16:39 Cannabis-Showcase Tips for Starting Weak/Old Seeds
Not a Noob here, so please refrain from any basic technique. I am having problems germing some potentially old or weak seeds. They will crack and a some then will have lil root stick out but they won’t grow any farther. I’ve tried putting them in coco, BX & HP, rockwool, paper towel and nothing seems to help them grow past the initial crack and tail pop.
Make sure my water is between 6.5-7 PH (5.5-6.0 for rockwool), have them in a warm area away from light, I’ve also added H2O2 to my distilled PHd water, added acids like humic and folic, as well as even enzymes for rooting. I even did a pure 3% H2O2 bath for 10-30 minutes. The only method I haven’t tried is the seed crack before germing. Since I don’t have many beans left (old school LadyBug’s Bubba) these seeds are rare, so I’m scared to crack them to much and damage the lil sprout inside.
Anyone with experience and success with cracking and germing old beans please give me some advice. If you’re in Canada I’d definitely send you over some clones or seeds when I do my reproduction for helping me out.

2023.06.02 16:38 SMSARM Worst product ever
I have a gig Fios Verizon. Orbi/Netgear wifi infrastructure. 5 Arlo Ultra 2 with base and 1 gig sd card.
- Very very slow. CVR is a joke compared to Nest that I had. Software is so not user friendly that finding is an event in CVR is nearly impossible. Nest showed all events and when you scroll you can see the fast forward video. Forget finding anything with Arlo.
- Motion detection useless. Will record after the motion has happened, good luck finding in CVR - impossible.
- Base station doesn't record properly. It stopped after trial period. Still paying for CVR which is not recorded locally. You are supposed to get motion only recorded locally which is not working either.
- Base stations interferes with Orbi slowing down the whole wifi network. Good luck trying to change wifi channels, base station will tune back in to slow down your network. Like it's designed to do damage on purpose. What sense does it make if the base station only works with direct Ethernet connection?
- Support is a joke. Good luck trying to reach them or get any help. Same info they have on website but with unqualified support team who will lecture you instead of solving the problem. The last time I got connected to billing instead of tech support.
I bought it because it's supposed to be high end 4K. Plus I wanted the base station to record locally in case internet is down. Around $1,5k wasted money and with their rip of subscription price you expect to get smth more.
Stay away. Nothing works properly, design not user friendly, speeds aro so low that you just give up. 20 years old wired cameras are doing much better job than this crap.

2023.06.02 16:33 Good-mood-curiosity How do you as the adult child prevent the family cat going to the shelter when you presenting yourself as a last resort makes it likely you'll get him even when the better options have accepted taking care of the cat for the long haul?
So mom and her bf have a 2 year old cat who is a complete cowardly teenager to the absolute fullest extent of those terms. He has an attitude, strict petting boundaries and is terrified of literally everything--new person, new noise, a quick movement and he is jumping out of his skin despite having a stable home with mom and bf where nobody ever did a single thing to harm him since he was a kitten. He is not made for shelter life--he'll struggle to be adopted and be traumatized in the process. The relationship is on the rocks and the question is when, not if, it'll end and it'll end in the cat's lifetime. Mom refuses to take the cat. Bf (currently feeds/cleans the litter box/does vet visits) stayed silent when she informed him of this but idk if he's accepted that he's taking care of the cat for the long haul. I don't expect him to give the cat to the shelter but I wouldn't be surprised if he does and mom doesn't trust him not to. The cat's meows are now sometimes being ignored when they used to always make mom and bf immediately stand at attention, he barely plays with the cat--he's kinda losing interest in the cat, basically. Meanwhile, I'm a med student. Residency is in a year idk where, I'm single as anything with dreams of being married with kids within the next 9 years (relevant because cat lady stereotypes plus having a cat can limit my already limited free time), and I can barely keep myself alive. I'm not a good option for this cat, I don't want this cat but I don't want him going to the shelter more so if he's faced with shelter life, I'm taking him. Issue is, if I mention I'm an option, bf is likely to give me the cat due to growing laziness/an aversion to some responsibilities (he's happy doing the bare minimum to stay alive) even if he's already accepted he'll be caring for the cat for the long haul plus this is a "when they break up" conversation so I can't talk to him about it anyway cause it's their relationship and thus none of my business. I get involved, I may speed up the separation process and I want this cat to have the only home he's known for as long as possible, plus mom expressly forbid me mentioning it to him (she's against my getting the cat, for the record. She won't give it to the shelter if it lands in her lap but she is pushing for the bf to take the cat which is the best thing for the cat (cat comes to me, that's a 1 bdrm apt, me being gone 8-12+hrs a day (automatic feeder so he'll be fed), the cheapest litter and food he tolerates vs bf with a well paying job, the good food, bf works from home so company (he's a "gotta be where the people are but they'd better not touch me" kind of cat), bf knows the vets, any move will be up to an hr away by car vs a plane ride). I also don't have any information about the actual situation cause bf refuses to speak about it to mom (for all I know he's planning to disappear come September or he may hang around for another 7 years) and I can't exactly broach that conversation without adding tension to an already tenuous situation. The timeline of the break up is unclear, the outcomes are uncertain, I'm physically far away except for breaks and just. Idk how to handle this situation cause the cat cannot go to the shelter--he's innocent, he shouldn't be severely traumatized just because his parents break up.

2023.06.02 16:32 Cactuscanoe Plaza Azteca drink spikings
There's a earning post doing the round on Facebook right now from a lady who had her drink drugged while at Plaza Azteca on 29. While unfortunately not uncommon in a collage town, it caught my attention because the same thing happened to myself and a friend at the same place a few years back, with no one but the bar tender and his friend there that evening. A police report was filed and nothing came of it, and seeing that it has happened to someone else there, I wanted to do some digging into whether anyone else has had a similar experience.
If you have, or someone you know, please feel free to dm me. No names needed, we just feel that there is something happening here and would like to gather as much information as we can so that if there is a pattern, it can be prevented happening to other people.

2023.06.02 16:30 RodionRomanovich1866 Macbeth is a literary masterpiece that, in my opinion, kickstarted psychological genres of literature
Macbeth is the shortest, bloodiest and by far most exciting play Shakespeare has to offer, and I feel like despite its presence in the school system (England) people don’t really realise it’s ingenuity.
Seriously, it’s arguably one of the first stories ever written to truly focus on the psyche, the why of characters. Macbeth isn’t some evil, 2D character, he really struggles with the thought of regicide, a strong theme in relation to the great chain of being, convincing himself that he doesn’t need to kill to claim the throne initially but eventually, with Lady Macbeth’s persuasion, he executes the unforgivable sin of murdering a King (Maybe a few decades too early) and it’s here, the aftermath of such an obscene act, that the play truly flourishes, as Macbeth descends deeper into his tyrannical madness, a consequence of his reliance on the unnatural witches, who themselves even begin to see Macbeth as wicked.
And all it comes to a crashing end with his overconfidence ultimately being his demise, as his kingdom built on blood falls apart under its own wickedness; “All the perfumes of Arabia will not sweeten this here spot,” Lady Macbeth says in her final soliloquy, and in my favourite quote of all, remarks that “What’s done can not be undone;” a terrible realisation echoing from an earlier sentiment in the play- “What’s done is done.” It comes full circle, the true scale and horror of her actions have set in, which are all too much for her as she eventually takes her own life.
And to end with, since this is way longer than I expected, my favourite soliloquy- “Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow.” I interpret this as the effect of godlessness on Macbeth, stemming from killing God’s appointed regent on Earth, as early as from when he was unable to say amen. He is resigned in this speech, somber and almost nihilist; psychologically, what with Birnam Wood coming to Dunsinane, and Banquo’s long line of kings shown earlier, perhaps he has acknowledged his fallibility, even if none of woman born can harm Macbeth, what toll has it taken on his person? What kingdom is there left to rule?
This play is really quite spectacular, a classic tragedy, the fall from grace of a once noble servant to a tyrannical, immoral usurper. Really, read this play. It’ll take hardly half an hour but it’ll be worth all the more.
(BTW, I tried to post this on literature but it didn’t work? Anyone know what’s up with that?)

Her part of practice evaluated at 650,000 because they took into percentage of practice. After running numbers I'd be taking hit to buy her out over 10 years depending on seller financed agreement. Do the numbers make sense? I feel like it's a pass to make less with more stress/responsibility as an owner. All advice/thoughts welcome

2023.06.02 16:26 ter1us My story of being catfished
M 29, this is the real story of me being catfished for about a year. May this serve as a warning to others...
I have met this woman on a certain online forum. Lets call her "L". We had one common hobby that was something that connected us in a first place. L was somewhat older than me, from my country and was quite attractive to say at least. But I don't put much of a weight on person's looks... what really impresses me is intelligent conversation, connection, support and genuine care...
So anyways... We started talking and messaging each other, from one maybe two short messages per day. First they were solely about our common hobby. We have also started to discuss various topics. What we do for a living, hobbies, politics...I have found out that we have so much in common! Normally, I am not quite talkative person as I go after those deep conversations and not superficial small talk. This conversation had such unusual flow. We exchanged like 20-30 long messages daily! Some weekends we have talked literally all day. I have received numerous pictures from her life, how she was on holiday, where she lived, her out with her friends etc.
I was in a quite dark period of my life. Covid was still raging, lockdowns. I was jobless and seriously depressed. Unsuccessful job interviews piling up.... I was not prepared to meet up with L, no way someone would date jobless looser like me, right? But L has really emotionally supported me. It was certainly nice to have someone to confine in, someone who would be there to cheer me up...I really started to fall in love with L. L has given me few hints and even outright told me that I would be "an ideal life partner" for her.
And then one day I have confessed my love for her. First time in my life! The day after I have sent my message this online forum just crashed and was inaccessible for a week! It must have been a destiny!!! Luckily I have had her e-mail so we continued our discussion there. Our e-mails grew longer and longer, each ending with such warm love confession. We later moved our discussion to instagram. I even wrote few love poems for her, send her pictures of flowers etc... We have talked about our romantic dinner and even our life together etc...It was truly beautiful. She even archived our conversations from that forum and sent them to me!
Soon afterwards I have finally found a job, after one year long job search! So I was finally prepared to meet up with L. So I have started to really push for our meeting. But then came excuses. How she was currently working in other country. How she was really busy with her work etc. But conversation never really died despite all this. I really believed her at first. Then I have started to have my doubts. How come that person who loves me will not for the love of god meet up with me? I gave her an ultimatum, either we meet up in certain time frame or we are over...told me that she does not like ultimatums...nothing has worked, I was desperate...
Then on one day and completely out of random I have found a picture! Her picture!!! I gotten curious and put it in a reverse image search. I have found an instagram. It was some lady from Poland? Definitely L...but L was not from Poland...I was confused...what the hell...there were more pictures of hers there...I wrote quick message to L demanding an explanation! And I have never received any answer... I was furious, I could not sleep properly for three days. I used reverse image search again on other pictures. My findings were as follows: Her holiday? Stolen from some travel blog. Her n*des? Stolen from multiple other websites. The house in which she lived in? Stolen from some website and not even being in a city in which she supposedly was in...and many more...
Turns out the love of my life never existed at all!!!! I wrote the last e-mail to that person. Naming every one of my findings and telling her to delete every love poem and message I have ever sent to her and to NEVER contact me ever again. The trust was broken there can be no friendship nor love without that. I felt dirty, used and totally betrayed! How could have this happened to me? How can you do that to another living being? I deleted everything I had from her... every picture, every message from our archived conversation / e-mails and most importantly my instagram account.
As for my recovery...first month afterwards was probably the hardest. No messages, no love confessions, nothing... I felt really lonely. Regrettably I have never received any explanation from L, I do miss a proper closure. That person could at least be decent enough and apologize, guess her love for me was also a fake... Regardless, It has been two months now and I am steadily getting over her. It is easier to tell yourself that that person never existed at all...
I do feel like I will be able to date in a few months. This time I will be strict about a personal meeting. I will not accept any excuses this time! I believe I will be able to find a girl to love with all of my heart. <3
