The Root of all Darcey and Stacey's issues...
2020.09.20 21:54 itskadyThe Root of all Darcey and Stacey's issues...
So I've been watching 90 day since season one and have been watching Darcey since she first strutted her stuff down an Amsterdam airport escalator and recently I was rewatching some clips and just gathering info together and I really believe that most of Darcey and Stacey's (mainly Darcey) problems are rooted in the loss of their brother, Micheal. Let me explain. Darcey's older brother died from a rare form of cancer when he was, I believe, 27 years old we know from what she and Stacey have said that Micheal was their "protector" and really the man of the house. When he died he left a vacancy there, especially in Darcey, and she is now forever searching for Micheal in these twenty-something-year-old foreign men. Jesse was 24 when she met him and somewhere around 25-26 when they broke up. He is Dutch. Tom was 38 when she dated him but would've been around 33-34 when she met him online. He was British and presented (terribly) a never gentlemanly posh attitude. Georgi is 33 years old and Bulgarian. Also presenting his very douchey fake gentlemanly attitude. So what is Darcey looking for in these men? What she found in Micheal, a protector, a gentlemen, someone who treated her like she had worth. Many people know the term daddy issues and the whole idea that women look for their father in the men they date Darcey has brother issues because her brother was a surrogate father. For example, if a father was a violent drunk throughout a daughter's childhood she'll gravitate toward men who are violent or addicts in an attempt to 'fix' them or to find some type of familiarity. Darcey's father was in China working most of her childhood so he was absent we know that her brother really stepped up and became that father figure to them now that he's gone she seems to resent her father and long for her brother attempting to find him in these younger men. At his grave, she and Stacey mention he was strong, loyal, and "a real man". Stacey says to the camera that she wants a man like Micheal for Darcey, the only thing they can discuss at his grave is his qualities and how they want that in a partner. (A bit odd to associate your brother with men you'd like to date) You can tell from all of Darcey's scenes that she is looking for that fairy tale dream, a prince to come take her away and marry her and all her dreams will come true. She thinks that these foreign men will be able to offer her this, she believes these cultures have strong gentlemanly men who will protect her the way her brother did. She dates these younger men because they are all close to the age range Micheal was when he died. I really feel for Darcey and I can't even begin to imagine her pain or loss. In a way Darcey is still that little girl looking for someone to protect her, I can't help but wonder what or who Micheal protected them from? I don't think Darcey will ever be able to have a successful relationship until she properly grieves for her brother and can move on with her life.
2020.09.19 00:23 AlphaJoah2 months, 1 relapse and 35 days of NoFap. What I've experienced and what I learnt
I don't know exactly where to start. I can safely say that my ex girlfriend left a man that I no longer am. I started my NoFap journey about a year ago but wasn't as resilient as I am now. During my first 1 month streak starting back in August, I aimed to win her over again. In retrospect, I did. But the woman she had become, I did not see as worthy anymore. I somehow knew what was better for me. From there, my uncertainty as well as lust for her had triggered a relapse and I realised this is for me, not for anyone else. My second streak and new mindset literally had changed my life. I started reading, becoming more spiritual as a person by pursuing Buddhism fully, I started working on building classic cars and I aimed to getting my grades up. The problem with my grades was that I was so focused on my crumbling relationship, that I failed the year by failing to turn in 12 assignments. I didn't know what to do, so I booked an appointment with my principle and I told him everything. This was the first week of NoFap and I was looking my principal in the eye and saying "I have a problem, I need your help". From there, he seemed to suddenly have a form of respect for me and has allowed me to catch up the work. As time went by, I found myself more and more emotionally stable, I had even taken up the One Punch Man Challenge by week 2. Every day, I found myself doing 100 situps, 100 squats, 1000 pushups and a 10 km run. The pain was unbearable but I found that by week 3, the workout no longer had any affect on me and I found myself doing more intense workouts. My muscles had grown more in 2 weeks than it did in years of on and off gyming. Following that, I soon went back into playing guitar. I am quickly learning more and more each day about the instrument now than I ever have, I've just found myself to be more focused. Soon, I was going on dates again, old friends started returning and all 3 of my exes had either invited me out for dates, called me or apologised. Keep in mind, that all of them left me for other men that they were seeing behind my back. The most recent, I would've killed to hear her voice, a part of me still will, but as I said the woman she is now, I can no longer respect. She called me and I literally said "I'm jogging, make this quick". Our breakup had me see a majority of my friends take her side and those who stayed with me have all said that I had become a completely different person. A more mature and open person. I have received "well spoken" and "well punctuated" on several occasions. My intuition strengthened and I could seemingly know what people were thinking, even when they weren't around me. My father with whom I've barely had a relationship with, had asked me to be his best man for his wedding. Mind you, he walked out on me when I was 6 and I relentlessly pursued a father son relationship with him but I had never seemed to get anywhere. I just followed a gut instinct to go see him and I went through with driving 45 minutes to catch up, the best man thing followed shortly afterwards. Eventually, my AdBlock failed and I found that my PC no longer blocked adult sites anymore. I saw it as a trial, my Chrome became a temptation once again and as of writing this I still haven't broken the streak. By the week 3, I started going on dates again, I had met this beautiful mandarin girl with whom I have had 3 dates with already, I feel comfortable with everything I say to anyone, including her. I find that I'm not as shy or nervous than I once had been. I saw that I now speak my mind while also thinking about what I'm about to say more than I usually do. A number of women that I deemed out of my league then started paying attention to me, from a Dutch girl who I've known for years suddenly becoming increasingly close to the point where my picture stays on her wall to an Arab girl who referred to me as "Perfect" sticks in my mind. I'm not perfect though, there's so much about me that I don't like, my fast metabolism which tops me from gaining weight, the scars on my face, chest and knuckles, the claw marks that my ex left on my back over a year ago and the feeling of being so easily replaceable is there. People call me handsome as well as cute but I don't feel that way alot of the time. Yet, I can still say "Yes, I am a beautiful person." My body had strengthened further, my old high school friends returned, my job got more pay, most of my relationships harmonised, I meditate, I exercise, I get my work done, I build cars, I visualise a future where things are harmonised further where ex and I at least have a mutual respect and I have my career, I have my savings growing monthly for future financial security and most importantly, I've realised that I need to look after myself before I do a man or woman. That future me is something, I need to work towards, I trust myself in making the right decisions. I believe in the future I visualise each day, I believe in the Universe that'll help me achieve said future and I believe in myself to make that future possible. I guess a good way to end this off is to say "Yes, I've had my problems, I've had my traumas, I've had moments where I just wanted to die, I've lost lovers, I've lost friends, I've been addicted, I've been starved of affection and I've never had a good image of myself. But that's ok. I'm ok and thing's are only getting better." Should you do NoFap? Yeah, you should. There is nothing but benefits. You literally have nothing to lose.
2020.09.18 20:43 Kujo17What is "Patriotic Education "? In response to the impending executive order from trump Jeff Sharlet breaks down what people can expect, and highlights why this is something every American needs to be aware of. To say it's a chilling read, in my opinion , is an understatement.
Jeff Sharlet is a published author, and this post was originally a Twitter thread made by him, the original link can be found here and was converted via ThreadReaderApp- hence the formatting and spelling choices. . <<<><<<><<<><<<><<<><<<><<<>><<<<<<><<<><<<><<<>>>> . "Patriotic education" is Stephen Miller's fascism + Mike Pence's fundamentalism. Some years ago, I took a course in "patriotic education" for my book THE FAMILY. I spent a season reading its textbooks & talking to its teachers. Here's what to expect... A thread. . It'd be cliché to quote Orwell were it not for the fact that fundamentalist intellectuals do so w/ such frequency. At a rally to expose the “myth” of church/state separation Orwell was quoted at me 4 times: "Those who control the past control the future." 2/ . 1st time I heard Orwell quoted at a patriotic education rally was from William Federer, author of America's God & Country, which then had sold 1/2 mil copies--cherry picked, distorted, & fabricated quotes for students "proving" U.S. founded as Christian nation... 3/ . "Patriotic educators" teach that Jefferson's wall of separation between church & state is misunderstood. It was meant as a "one-way wall," Federer claimed, to protect church from state, not the other way around.4/ . The first pillar of American fundamentalism is Jesus; the second is history, and in the fundamentalist mind the two are converging. We heard that at the White House "History" conference, the notion we need more Christ in our schools, that our past is Christian... 5/ . "Patriotic education" is a fundamentalist concept. Just as fundamentalist religion supposes that divine truths are literal & determined by (white male) authority, so fundamentalist history discards the ongoing work of knowing the past. 6/ . "Patriotic education" proposes, as did the White House conference, that the Constitution is divine, "god-breathed," as some say, & thus impervious to expanding ideas of rights. That's the religion behind Clarence Thomas' constitutional "originalism." It's false.7/ . Textbooks already written for "patriotic education"--those used in Christian nationalist schooling--emphasize Northwest Ordinance of 1787, which declared “religion” necessary to “good government” & thus to be encouraged through schools. This is cherry picking. 8/ . The Christian nationalists aren't wrong that Protestantism was a central part of education for much of U.S. history. It wasn't until the 1930s that public ed veered away from biblical schooling. Because the 1st amendment. Because liberty of conscience. 9/ . When I began reading the Christian nationalist school curriculum over a decade ago, it was already being taught to more than 10% of U.S. kids. That number has grown, a lot. It's big enough now to make a bid for control of least some public schools. 10/ . The modern Christian Right--without which there would be no Trumpism--began not in national politics but on school boards. Those elections matters. The Right knows that. Those dismissing "patriotic education" as 2020 tactic are themselves ignoring history... 11/ . A popular jr. high "patriotic education" textbook begins: "“Who, knowing the facts of our history, can doubt that the U.S has been a thought in the mind of God from all eternity?” Trump, ystrdy: "the fulfillment of a thousand years of Western civilization." 12/ . That's from a textbook called "The American Republic for Christian Schools," published by Bob Jones University Press, a major Christian nationalist education publisher. You may remember Bob Jones as the fundamentalist school that banned interracial dating until 2000. 13/ . Emphasis at White House history confab on private property. Here's a Christian nationalist high school econ textbook: “One must never come to see... free market as an end in itself. [It] merely sets the stage for an unhindered propagation of the gospel of Jesus Christ.” 14/ . "Patriotic education" likely wldn't exist w/out a man named Rousas John Rushdoony--the most radical Christian nationalist & "biblical capitalist" you never heard of. He thought of himself first & foremost as a historian, "correcting" secular, socialist education. 15/ . Rushdoony taught the modern pioneers of Christian nationalist ed to teach "providential history," such as the “Protestant Wind” with which it says God helped British defeat Spanish Armada so that the New World would not be overly settled by agents of the Vatican. 16/ . Rushdoony also established as bedrock Christian nationalist history idea that secular democracy is defiance of God--that real democracy means submitting to God's will as expressed by his "chosen one," the strongmen He puts in power. Sound familiar? 17/ . "History is God's working in man," the director of a popular Christian nationalist education publisher told me. In fact, he preferred to call U.S. history "heritage studies." Trump loves that word, "heritage," too. (Maybe it has something to do w/ the $413 mil he inherited?) 18/ . "Heritage studies," or "patriotic education," is a cult of personality. History matters not for its progression of “fact, fact, fact,” Michael McHugh, a pioneer of modern Christian nationalist ed, told me, but for “key personalities.” It's the strongman view of the past. 19/ . Trump ystrdy spoke of history as an "unstoppable chain of events"--culminating in him. This isn't a '20 campaign tactic. He's been talking "history" more & more for over a year, chipping away at Rushmore's remaining raw granite to add his name, his "key personality." 20/ . Trump doesn't need to know the particulars of Christian nationalist "history" to make it point to him. He surely doesn't know John Witherspoon, the only pastor to sign the declaration, from whom Christian nationalists derive a kind of "democratic" divine right to rule. 21/ . Another "key man" already established in the Christian nationalist schooling that's the basis for "patriotic education" is Trump's fave general, MacArthur--fired by Truman for almost sparking WW III. That's who "patriotic ed" wants our boys to be. 22/ . If "patriotic education" wants our boys to be "violent men [who] take it by force," as a popular Christian nationalist Bible verse puts it (Matthew 11:12), what does it dream for girls? That they be subject to what Christian nationalists--& Stephen Miller--dub "chivalry." 23/ . Another "key man" in "patriotic education" is Sgt. Alvin York, a WW I hero repurposed by Christian nationalism as the greatest Christian sniper in U.S. history. "God uses ordinary people," teaches the lesson. Reminds me of a popular Trump t-shirt I saw reporting ralies... 24/ . "Patriotic education" proposes he greatest "key men"--Washington, Lincoln, &, now, Trump--as divine. Popular Christian nationalist art often depicts them attended by a ghostly Christ or angels; & texts offer "proofs" of their chosen-ness. This is also known as "fascism." 25/ . During Iraq War, Christian nationalists erected 100s of billboards depicting a U.S. soldier backed by a ghostly Washington. Now it's cops, heroes in nationalist imagination of a new war, backed by angels & patriotic ghosts. 26/ . As w/ Texas state legislator other day, "patriotic education" repackages defeats--the Alamo--as victories & men who renounced U.S.--Confed. generals--as American heroes. "America" in nationalist imagination isn't united; it's "red states," it's whatever strongmen say it is. 26/ . "Patriotic education" has always meant preparing for war as a lens through which to view world, whether the Civil War then or a prospective one now. "Boys, are you ready for warfare?" asks one homeschooling video, "Putting on the Whole Armor of God." 27/ . Such terms come straight outta R.J. Rushdoony. Christian nationalist apologists, "responsible" conservatives, insist Rushdoony was fringe. & yet he was in many ways father of 2 major ideas: Christian homeschooling, & "providential history"--aka modern "patriotic education." 28/ . This gets wonky: Rushdoony in turn studied a turn-of-the-century Dutch theologian Abraham Kuyper. Kuyper was complex--but 1st Rushdoony, then Watergate felon Chuck Colson, & now today's Christian nationalists--twist his thought into a proof for nationalist education. 29/ . They take Kuyper's idea of "presuppositionalism"--in essence, subjectivity--as proof that neutral governance is impossible. Then they declare that subjectivity an objective "fact" to conclude that govt can only be for God or against him. Trump on Biden: "against God!" 30/ . Even tho he was an anti-Catholic Christian nationalist, modern "patriotic ed" pioneer Rushdoony loved JFK's rhetoric for its framing of U.S. as a redeemer nation (JFK: "God's work must be our own.") So, too, QAnon now cherry picks JFK for prophetic proof of Trump's glory. 31/ . A big part of my course in "patriotic education," like Christian nationalist education in general, was consumed by Stonewall Jackson--who got more ink in U.S. History For Christian Schools textbook than even Lee, much less Grant (forget all about Douglass).32/ . A nationalist magazine called Practical Homeschooling used to (& may still) offer instructions for Stonewall Jackson costumes in honor of his birthday. A text called Stonewall Jackson: The Black Man's Friend is--well, hell, do I need to explain how f'd up that is? 33/ . What's up w/ Stonewall Jackson & Christian nationalist education? The modern version partly began w/ him, when Rushdoony discovered a forgotten bio that framed him as fighting NOT for slavery, or the South, but the supposedly Christian ideals of the founders. 34/ . Within "patriotic education," Confederate generals like Stonewall Jackson aren't the traitors they objectively were, they're men who transcended partisanship in the service of Christian ideals. Christian nationalists do denounce slavery, too. Lotta cognitive dissonance. 35/ . "Cognitive dissonance" is maybe a good place to pause this thread on Christian nationalist roots of Trump's "patriotic education" initiative. My 6th grader's remote classes are over; time for homeschooling. We won't be studying Stonewall Jackson. 37/
2020.09.17 20:42 StevenStevens43The birth of the Antiochus
The Dardani: Throughout the ages in this region, the word "Dan" has prevailed in seemingly many forms and abbreviations. From the tribes of Dan in Israel, to the Denyans in Egypt, to the Tuatha de Dannan in Ireland, to the Danes in Denmark. By the 4th Century BC, the Dardani were the strongest group in europe fighting against the Messenaean Greek expansion. (Regards to the photo beneath.. When one see's a place name that contains two LL's, such as "Illyria", then one might suspect it has some pertinence with the Welsh language). Dardani
Link for photo Dardania Celtic invasion: You see, in this area, there was an "ongoing" power struggle going on between peoples with allegiances to the more Northern territories such as Scandinavia, and North western territories such as Albion/Britain, and those with allegiances more to traditional europeans and Anatolians, such as Greeks. By the 4th century BC, the power struggle in this region was on scales, going back and forth like a yoyo, and in the 4th Century BC the Celts came down hard, and established a very powerful base, named Dardania. Dardania
Link for photo The Alba Albanian flag Greko-Roman: In fact, the contemporary understanding that Greko-Romans, unlike indigenous Greeks, or Indigenous Italians, are in fact the descendants of multi-culturistic Greek diversity, would mean they are also partially the descendants of peoples from the Balkans, that probably originate from more Baltic lands than Balkan, had to be explained away by the early Roman emperors that were now trying to justify wars against the Dardani. And they admitted (in not so many words), that they are partially descended from Dardani peoples, but that the Dardani are unevolved partial ancestors, and they do not have the same levels of sophistication as the Greeks, that Greco-Romans are also descended from, thus, they are barbarians. ancient sources
The rulers of some of the great powers of antiquity, such as Epirus), Macedonia) and Rome, claimed a Trojan ancestry linking themselves to Dardanus), who according to the tradition was the founder of the Trojan ruling house. But if Dardanus and the tribes over which he ruled were descended from the Balkan people, who were considered "barbarians" by the Romans, it would have been an embarrassment. Thus, by Roman times the connection was explained by a movement that occurred in the opposite direction proposing that Dardanus caused the settling of the Dardani west of the Thracians, accepting the version that the Dardani were a people related to the Trojans, but that they had degenerated to a state of "barbarism" in their new settlement).
Link for photo Beheaded barbarian Alexander the Great: The Dardani would expand their power, conquering the whole of Macedonia, and would almost be united with the Persian Achaemenid empire, when Alexander the Great would come along and reclaim Macedonia. 4th century BC
In 334 BC, under the leadership of Cleitus, the son of Bardylis, the Dardani, in alliance with other Illyrian tribes attacked Macedonia held by Alexander the Great. The Dardani managed to capture some cities but were eventually defeated by Alexander's forces.
Alexander endeavoured to reach the "ends of the world and the Great Outer Sea" and invaded India in 326 BC, winning an important victory over the Pauravas at the Battle of the Hydaspes. He eventually turned back at the demand of his homesick troops, dying in Babylon in 323 BC, the city that he planned to establish as his capital, without executing a series of planned campaigns that would have begun with an invasion of Arabia. In the years following his death, a series of civil wars tore his empire apart, resulting in the establishment of several states ruled by the Diadochi, Alexander's surviving generals and heirs.
Pharoah: Of course, his place in history would be cemented when he removed the Persians from the Egyptian throne, and became crowned Pharoah, in 332 BC, thus founding the foundations for the Ptolemic empire. Egypt
Roman alliances: From the get go, the Ptolomists were keen to form alliances with their sophisticated cousins, the Romans. Foreign affairs)
He had much less success in his attempts to negotiate a peace between the Macedonia and the Roman Republic in the First Macedonian War (215-205 BC). Ptolemy made large financial contributions to a number of Greek cities in order to gain their favour. He was responsible for the city walls at Gortyn in Crete Ptolemy was honoured for his benefactions with monuments and cults in his honour at various cities, including Rhodes and Oropus In the west, Ptolemy maintained friendly neutrality with the Roman Republic and Carthage, which were fighting against one another in the Second Punic War (218-201 BC). He received a friendly embassy from the Romans in 210 BC, requesting a gift of grain to help feed the starving populus. It is unknown how Ptolemy responded to this request.

However, Green thinks that Heracles was killed after Alexander IV's assassination.
Link for photo Alexandros IV Dardanian alliance: The Dardanian elitists, in true aristocratic fashion, tried to get their foot on the throne another way, by offering to protect the Hellenstic empire against Celtic invasion, by forming allegiances. Which of course, would result in concessions. However Ptolomy quite wisely refused, and decided to fight the Celtic armies himself. 1st - 3rd century BC
brennus: Now, another king that was involved in this invasion beginning around 279 BC, was one of the Brennos brothers. If you would like to know which one of the brothers it was, and what country he was king of, then simply go to the lobby after reading this article, and read the article "Belinus and Brennius and the sack of rome". But, Belinas, king of Albany and Cambria, was reported to have committed suicide during this war. It is likely he did so by jumping off the tower of Apollo. To find out why it is likely that he jumped off the tower of apollo, simply see other articles in lobby. Brennus
Another Brennus) was one of the leaders of the army of Gauls who attempted to invade and settle in the Greek mainland in 278 BC. After a looting spree and after managing to pass Thermopylae by encircling the Greek army and forcing it to retreat he made his way to the rich treasury at Delphi but he was defeated by the re-assembled Greek army. Brennus was heavily injured at the battle of Delphi and committed suicide there.

In fact, Brennius and Belinus where likely one of the Belgae themselves, as "Belgae" was just part of a wider branch of Gaelic speaking Gauls that spread from Britain, Ireland and throughout mainland europe. The differences between Belgae, and other Gauls, would be simple dialectics, with one another still able to speak to eachother, even if in a totally different accent, or, with slightly different spellings and pronounications. Beli and Belinus
The consensus among linguists is that the ethnic name Belgae comes from the Proto-Celtic root \belg-* or \bolg-* meaning "to swell (particularly with angebattle fury/etc.)", cognate with the Dutch adjective gebelgd "very angry" (weak perfect participle of the verb belgen "to become angry") and verbolgen "being angry" (strong perfect participle of obsolete verbelgen "to make angry"), as well as the Old English verb belgan, "to be angry" (from Proto-Germanic\balgiz), derived ultimately from the Proto-Indo-European root *\bhelgh-* ("to swell, bulge, billow"). Thus, a Proto-Celtic ethnic name \Bolgoi* could be interpreted as "the people who swell (particularly with angebattle fury)".
Link for photo Belgia Julius Caesar: Now, a lot of confusion and damage was caused by the politics of Julius Caesar, who decided to draw lines between Gallic countries, and insist they are seperate peoples. His historical understanding is not actually shared by today's contemporary scholar and historian, and was not even shared amongst his own Greco allies, that thought there was an extremely small difference between Gauls, and Germanics, and tribes from other gaelic speaking parts of Gaul. Strabos obviously did not share Caesars political reasoning. Origins of Belgae
. Ancient sources such as Caesar are not always clear about the things used to define ethnicity today. While Caesar or his sources described the Belgae as distinctly different from the Gauls, Strabo stated that the differences between the Celts (Gauls) and Belgae, in countenance, language, politics, and way of life was a small one, unlike the difference between the Aquitanians and Celts. The fact that the Belgae were living in Gaul means that in one sense they were Gauls. This may be Caesar's meaning when he says "The Belgae have the same method of attacking a fortress as the rest of the Gauls".
Belgae in Britain: Now, most of the most southern regions of Albion/Briton, were inhabited by Belgae. The Belgae are even said to be the same peoples as the Irish Fir-Bolg. Which is hardly surprising, as they spoke the same language as Irish people. The name belgium, comes from the Belgae. Belgae

It is likely that the attacks from Belinus & the Belgae had a "huge" role to play in this success. Antiochus III
Antiochus III the Great/ænˈtaɪəkəs/ (Greek: Ἀντίoχoς Μέγας; c. 241 – 3 July 187 BC, ruled April/June 222 – 3 July 187 BC) was a Macedonian Hellenisticking and the 6th ruler of the Seleucid Empire. He ruled over the region of Syria and large parts of the rest of western Asia towards the end of the 3rd century BC. Rising to the throne at the age of eighteen in 222 BC, his early campaigns against the Ptolemaic Kingdom were unsuccessful, but in the following years Antiochus gained several military victories and substantially expanded the empire's territory.

He is a blond haired blue eyed boy. He has conquered Greece from the Greco-Romans. So, in that sense, yes, he is Greek. But he announces himself to the world as a freedom fighter fighting against the growing Roman empire. His invasion of Greece is of course, a huge blow to the Greco-Roman Hellenstic world.

Short routine I'm working on, needs polishing, still really rough, welcoming suggestions. Several years ago, in my late 30's, I realized I'd never been for a skin check with a dermatologist, and I went in. I'm a bit neurotic and high-strung, even though I hide it well, but the first thing they asked me to do when I got into the little room was to disrobe, then the doctor and her assistant came in, put me at ease, and then proceeded to go over my entire body and measure every mole or discoloration that I had, with the doc dictating coordinates and measurements on each type I had. After checking everything, the doc asked if I had anything else, to which I replied affirmatively that the old twig and berries had a couple of moles, so I ended up with this very clinical examination with two rubber-gloved women handling and looking at my cock and balls, and even though nothing was remotely sexy about this situation and I don't have any fetishes that would potentially line up with this scenario, because I was naked in front of a different woman for the first time in years, there was still this stupid little fear monster in the back of my brain screaming "Don't get a boner! Do not get a boner! There's no way you can explain that one easily!" Thankfully, this wasn't really a major concern, and I got out of there without any embarrassment, besides the weirdness of the situation, which realistically was all in my head. Next year, I need to do it again, but I've changed insurance, so new clinic that takes my plan. I get to the little room, and to my relief, a middle aged dude with a Southern California surfer vibe comes in, and I'm fine because, being a heterosexual man, there's realistically not much chance of me accidentally popping wood, unless he happens to break out a bunch of whiskey and meth. Tiger King proved anything is possible with enough drugs, right? So I get my exam, and he isn't as thorough with the note taking and examination as the last two were, but since I don't see any issues from my eyes and I don't know any way to politely say "hey, can't you look at my dick a little closer," I let it go. We talk really quickly about some issues I'm having lately with body acne, he gives me a couple topical products to try, says we'll follow in 3 months and see if they've had any impact, and discuss the next steps. Awesome. I go back three months later, that doc isn't there anymore, and the new doc steps in. I was a bit taken aback because it was a very youthful appearing, attractive woman who was a dead ringer for an actress on a medical drama my wife watched that I hated but won't mention the name of (Gray's Anatomy). By this point I've gotten over my irrational fear of growing in the doc's gloved hand, but I was a little uncomfortable, because even though she was very professional and rather nice, I thought she was about 26 or so, which meant they had given me the intern, and I don't want the intern, I want an actual doctor! And I went home and it kinda rattled around in my head, and I was stewing a bit, but then I thought maybe she's just really youthful looking, so finally I googled her name, since it was uncommon. And I felt a little bad because I almost felt like I was stalking her, and I didn't want to be creepy, but I figured I'd ignore anything that came up that might be personal like social media or anything sensitive. So without even clicking on the links, I find out that she graduated more than a decade ago from a decent medical school, plus apparently she's got a lot of pinterest entries, which is a something no young person has ever had, and I'm over myself. In fact, she's almost my age, she just looks young. But it made me realize that even though many times I've used the phrase "Wow, you don't look your age," and I've received it on occasion with flattery, it isn't really a compliment. Because when I think of someone in their 20's, I think, clueless. I think someone splitting a 3-bedroom apartment with three other people, and I hope they don't have the room with two beds, I think crappy car due to crappy credit, high student loans, and still occasionally borrowing money from their parents. And I realized that it's not a compliment. I don't want people thinking I'm in my 20's and just getting started, or in my 30's and just getting my shit together in life, I want them to realize I'm my age. If I were single, I'd want a woman to realize that a date with me means that I'll pay at a nicer restaurant, and I'll put it on a platinum card which I'm then going to pay off in a few weeks so I can get miles, not we're going dutch at a pizza place right by campus. And that's why I was nervous about the age of this doctor, not just because I didn't want an inexperienced person judging my chart, but because someone who's apartment is filled with towels they stole from a Motel 6 on a broke road trip to the beach while eating nothing but fast food can't make good decisions on their own life, let alone mine.
Tuatha de Dannan: Before reading this article, one should first click on the link below, and read a previous article i wrote regards to the Tuatha de Dannan, and how the Tuatha de Dannan were likely the same tribe as the tribe of Dan, descended from Dan I. Temple of Thoth Bres 1477 BC: Now, in this article, i am going to look in to who the ancestors or descendants of Dan I might have been. I will begin with an Irish high king named Bres, from 1477 BC. Bres, who is supposed to be the Son of a king named Balor, is regarded in Irish legends, to be amongst the first of the Tuatha de Dannan to arrive in Ireland. Family
Prince Elatha: According to Irish mythology, Bres was the son of Prince Elatha, who was in turn, the son of the dagda. However the Dagda appears to be too much of a euhemerical figure. More like a holy father, type of wizard, than a paternal father. Therefore, i am going to assume that his father did not have a penis so huge he dragged it along the ground, and that in actual fact, Bres paternal father was Balor, and not in fact Prince Elatha. Balor
Balor: Now if Bres was born in 1477 BC, then his father Balor would have been born in at least the 1490's BC. Now Balor, was in turn the son of Dot, who was in turn the son of Neit. Therefore Neit would likely be from sometime around 1530 BC - 1540 BC.
Celtic name: Now, according to contemporary scholars and historians, that believe Neit to be a mythological Celtic character, Neit is a Celtic name. Etymology
The name probably derives from the proto-Celtic *nei-t-
Neith hotep: Now, i am not saying that the Egyptian pharoah named Neith hotep from approximately 3150 BC is the same Neit being described in Irish mythology. The dates of 1530 BC and 1540 BC simply do not match up with Neith hoteps reign of approximately 3150 BC. But contemporary scholars and historians do now still require to do a lot of back tracking, in convincing everyone that Neith, is not a Celtic derived name. Also, even if Neith is the same person that Irish mythology is referring too, then Irish mythology made the same error that contemporary historians and scholars made, by assuming Neith was a man. Neith actually turned out to be the first female pharoah, ever. Neith-hotep
Neithhotep or Neith-hotep was an ancient Egyptianqueen consort living and ruling during the early First Dynasty. She was once thought to be a male ruler: her outstandingly large mastaba and the royal serekh surrounding her name on several seal impressions previously led Egyptologists and historians to the erroneous belief that she may have been an unknown king. As the understanding of early Egyptian writings developed, scholars learned that Neithhotep was in fact a woman of extraordinary rank. She was subsequently considered to be the wife of unified Egypt's first pharaoh, Narmer, and the mother of Hor-Aha. More recent discoveries suggest that Neithhotep might have instead been a spouse of Hor-Aha, and the mother and co-regent of successive ruler Djer. Archeological evidence also indicates that she may have ruled as pharaoh in her own right, and as such would have been the earliest known female monarch in history.
Link for photo Neithhotep writing Other Neiths: However the name "Neith" is a name which became deified, and other female princesses from the "Neithhotep lineage", assumed the name "Neith". Therefore, it does not matter if Irish mythology is, or is not, referring to Neith-hotep. Irish mythology is referring to Neith-hotep as the Tuatha de Dannans oldest known ancestor, of whichever Neith they are referring too, whether they like it or not. Name
Neithhotep's name is connected to Neith, the goddess of war and hunting. This followed a tradition notably practiced during the first dynasty: many queens (such as Merneith/Meritneith, another possible female pharaoh and descendant of Neithhotep) and princesses (such as Aha-Neith, Her-Neith, Nakht-Neith and Qa'-Neith) also had names referencing the deity.
Link for photo Deity Neith Narmer: Now, Narmer has a major roll to play in this. After-all, he was the husband of Neith Hotep, and was also a pharoah, and is credited with being the unifier of Upper Egypt, and lower Egypt. Narmer
Link for photo Narmer Libyan border: Now contemporary historians appear to have missed something here. They attribute the unification of Upper and lower Egypt to narmer, without taking in to consideration that this battle took place at the Egyptian/Libyan border, and depicted Narmer smiting a non Egyptian looking pharoah. Therefore, this would suggest, that in actual fact, this was an invasion coming from foreigners that crossed in to North Africa over the straits of Gibraltar, and were actually invading and conquering lower Egypt, from Berbers from Libya, that had already invaded and conquered lower Egypt from native upper egyptians, and by the fact those foreigners were at the Libyan/Egypt border, would suggest that they had already conquered Libya, and so this "could" be classed as a unification of Libya and Egypt. Wash)
Link for photo#/media/File:EB1911Egypt-Early_Art-_King_Narmer,_Slate_Palette.jpg) Narmer smiting Wash Berber: Now this would explain why Neith has a Celtic name. Scientists and anthropologists actually believe that during the younger dryas, Aryans moved south to escape the polar ice caps, and moved as far as Morocco, were they inter-bred with Afros, and actually created a new Afro-Aryan race, called Berbers, that went on to colonise North Africa, long after Aryans left Morocco to return North, though there may have been one group of Berbers named Saami, that decided to follow the Aryans back North. This also means, that Berbers have also taken on some Celtic cultural connections, such as their trade relations with Celts during the Beaker culture. This would also suggest, that Neith-hotep, was likely a Berber, and that is how Aryans managed to get to the border of Egypt, by marrying one of their cousins. It would also explain how Neith-hotep has a Celtic name. Pre-history and antiquity
Hor-Aha: Now, it would not make sense that Narmer was the unifier of Upper and Lower egypt. This is due to the fact that the son of Narmer and Neith-Hotep waged war upon Nubia and invaded upper egypt. Also, it would not make sense that Neith-Hotep was a Nubian, as she was in co-regency with Hor-Aha, as Hor-Aha was too young when he took the throne, to make decisions, and it is unlikely that a Nubian, would partake in a campaign named "Smiting Nubians" if she was the Nubian queen of a unified upper and lower Egypt. Activities outside egypt
Inscription on an ivory tablet from Abydos suggests that Hor-Aha led an expedition against the Nubians. On a year tablet, a year is explicitly called 'Year of smiting of Ta-Sety' (i.e. Nubia).

Den, also known as Hor-Den, Dewen and Udimu, is the Horus name of a pharaoh of the Early Dynastic Period) who ruled during the First Dynasty of Egypt. He is the best archaeologically-attested ruler of this period. Den is said to have brought prosperity to his realm and numerous innovations are attributed to his reign. He was the first to use the title "King of Lower and Upper Egypt", and the first depicted as wearing the double crown (red and white).
Den's family has been the subject of significant research. His mother was queen Merneith;

Mereruka served during the Sixth Dynasty of Egypt as one of Egypt's most powerful officials at a time when the influence of local state noblemen was increasing in wealth and power. Mereruka held numerous titles along with that of Vizier), which made him the most powerful person in Egypt after the king himself.
Link for photo Mereruka Back to Balor: Now, do you remember how this article began? It began pretty much with Balor. An interesting fact about Balor, is apart from the fact he was described as a giant, he also only had one eye. Death in battle
Though not stated outright, the supposition is that Balor here is a "one-eyed giant".
Odin: Now, interestingly, the Celtic god Odin, also only had one eye. Odin
Link for photo.jpg) Odin 170 names: Now, just as interestingly, Odin has 170 names. I am sure he has just as many abbreviations. Etymology
More than 170 names are recorded for Odin; the names are variously descriptive of attributes of the god, refer to myths involving him, or refer to religious practices associated with him. This multitude makes Odin the god with the most known names among the Germanic peoples.
Baleygr: Even more interestingly, one of his many names, just so happens to be Baleyg, which means shifty eye. Names for Odin Khamudi: Now, the date of approximately 1495 BC given for the estimated birth of Odin, would be quite consistant with an event of biblical proportions that happened in Egypt, when a native Egyptian pharoah named Ahmose I, from the lower cataracts of Egypt, rose up in an uprising named the conquest of the Hyksos, and removed the current foreign rulers from power in Egypt, and expelling them. Now, it is far from confirmed, but it is entirely possible, if not probable, that Khamudi might have had a wife that assumed the title "Neith". Khamudi
Dan I: It is also extremely likely, that Dan I was born in the 1490's BC, and was in fact Odin, from the fictional house of Woden, though likely the factual house of Dewen, which is the tomb, Den, grandson of Neith, is buried in. Dan I

Link for photo Hittite empire Indo-Aryan: Now you are also likely aware that the Hittite empire was Indo-Aryan. You might also be aware that the trigger for the war, was when Thutmose III invaded Mitanni territory, and the Mitanni kings were Indo-Aryan. You are probably also aware, that at this point in time, there was no such things as"Indo-European", and Indo-european is a modern day politically correct term. But in fact, the Hittite empire was also Indo-Aryan, and they came down hard to lend support to the Mitanni kings. Mitanni
While the Mitanni kings were supposedly Indo-Aryan, they used the language of the local people, which was at that time a non-Indo-European language, Hurrian. Their sphere of influence is shown in Hurrian place names, personal names and the spread through Syria and the Levant of a distinct pottery type.

2020.09.09 17:04 thulecitizen"Did Tsikurishvili feel any responsibility to stop the filming and attend to Avicii’s well-being?"
Witnessing his subject mentally fraying behind camera, did Tsikurishvili [director of Avicii: True Stories] feel any responsibility to stop the filming and attend to Avicii’s well-being? His response is emphatic. “Of course. But please don’t forget that I was in that world, too. I was trying to look after myself,” he says. “This is a stressful environment, man, and the kind of stress he was going through was on my shoulders as well. My job was to sacrifice everything – my private and professional life – and focus on two things: first to just physically and mentally make it, if you know what I mean, and secondly to finish this documentary.” The EDM scene needs regulation: 'it is about keeping our friends alive' While he and Avicii were pleased at the film’s reception upon its premiere in European cinemas in November 2017 and subsequent arrival on Netflix the following year, Tsikurishvili admits to mixed feelings now that Avicii is gone. He is satisfied that with Avicii’s death, True Stories has been reappraised and is part of a growing conversation about mental health in the dance scene. However, he struggles with the concept that it took the death of his friend to get that movement going. “It honestly makes me feel disappointed that someone has to suffer to that extent for people to finally sit down and listen to each other,” he says. “But it shows that Tim, before and after, has changed the music industry in different ways. The fact that people are talking about mental health is positive. But Tim is my friend and collaborator; I still find it hard that all this is happening because he has gone.” But more than industry talk, Tsikurishvili says real change is needed to ensure the future safety of DJs. At present, five of DJ Mag’s Top 10 artists are under the age of 35 (Dutch spinner Martin Garrix is the present world number one at the age of 23) and Tsikurishvili says legislation needs to be put in place to prevent further tragedies similar to Avicii. “The EDM world needs a lot of regulation,” he says. “It is not normal to do 300 shows a year. Artists, no matter how old they are, are human beings and often fragile souls and you just can’t put them under that kind of pressure. Now I am not saying that I know what to do, but there needs to be discussions by people in the EDM world and on a government level for guidelines and legislation. “I am not talking about taking away people’s freedoms; it is all about keeping all our friends alive.” [...] “I was the same as many of us in that I wanted to live that DJ life with all the parties and jets and money. That’s what I thought it was. And then Tim invited me to work with him and through him I stepped into that world and I realised that it was different.” Agreeing on the concept of a warts and all documentary following the life of a DJ on the rise, Tsikurishvili was given unfettered access to Avicii’s life, and from 2013 joined him on all his tours until his retirement. The first sign that the DJ life wasn’t all glamour came to Tsikurishvili a few days into his first tour with Avicii, which was a run of Australian dates. “My sleep was basically destroyed and I eventually had this understanding that this life is basically a never-ending grind,” he says. “I mean, look, I am not going to lie to you. The parties are great and you travel the world and see the positive parts of each country, but at the same time you are also dealing with human beings and they just can’t deliver the same result to the fans and industry each night. It is just not possible.” To illustrate his point, Tsikurishvili recalls the touring route Avicii took on his way to his UAE debut at Dubai’s World Trade Centre in 2016: “We started in Spain, then we went to Poland, Russia, some Baltic country I don’t remember, Dubai, Beirut, Israel and Italy … and that was in a week.” Tsikurishvili’s True Stories documentary shows how such a work rate ate away at the star. In a series of quietly devastating scenes, Avicii shared, almost resignedly, his thoughts on being on the road. “There was never an end to the shows, even when I hit a wall,” the DJ says in the opening stages of the film. “My life is all about stress.” Later, he offered a more harrowing observation on touring: “It will kill me.” Source: https://www.thenational.ae/arts-culture/music/avicii-s-friend-gives-us-an-insight-into-his-last-few-years-the-story-behind-heaven-1.879616

I don’t know I don’t know a lot about 80’s media, I know that ghostbusters was - malls, same time I unsubscribed from all the political channels, cause like I um, I used to watch the uhh the uh, what’s his what’s his name? the doug walker, uhh what’s his name? The nostalgia critic. When I was when I was in probably the first year of high school – -- so in the one episode of the nostalgia critic, he- wh which one was I talking about? The uh sorry, dash roamed (?), dash unmuted and made me lose my train of thought for a minute. I can’t remember which episode of the nostalgia critic I was talking about. But um, okay, so there’s a lot of episodes, there’s one where – -- the official version, of minecraft pocket edition on my kindle fire but I would wa- from- basically, from the years of 2009 and 2010 I would watch the angry video game nerd. And then one time I got in trouble cause my parents walked in and then they had uh they had me sit down and watch an episode of the angry video game nerd with them. Which was probably one of the worst experiences of my entire life. And I regret uhh, every day. And I I remember it so vividly uh it’s like a mental scar. And I was I was only around 9 years old at the time. I was um, I was in the third grade, and I like- that’s like a like a repressed memory, that was like a really bad time. But yea I really like the angry video game nerd, I thought I’d revisit him, saw the collab with the uhh what’s his face? With the doug walker, and I watched a quinton reviews video on doug walker. And I was like: “oh man doug walker… Ah he’s not a great guy” and so I, you know. But I I hadn’t watched doug walker for a while up until that point. Umm – -- conomy, uh, so that what happened with the social Darwinism in the 1800’s was you had the big uh corporations like the standard oil company, which would uh see themselves as like the the Pinnacle of uh that specific which they which they occupied. Uh so they would see themselves as the superior, the superior force in the market and they would they’d see that as their reason for swallowing up smaller businesses. So like, for example, what john d rockefeller would do, john d rockefeller would offer to buy a an like an independent oil refinery for a a, you know, not a great amount of money. Or or a good amount of money, depending on who it was, but that person might not wanna cave, so people are like: “oh well” and he’s like “well, okay” and he just lowers the price of oil to where everyone’s taking it at a loss, but the thing about the standard oil company, was because it owned about 90% of the oil refining industry, umm he was able to take that loss, for the amount of time that he was doing it, just long enough for the uh the business he was trying to take for let’s say a couple million to like, Fail completely and flop. Um and so then he’d buy that business for maybe a few thousand dollars. Uuh so that’s that’s how john d Rockefeller did that. But uh, so I was talking about social Darwinism I was talking about the uh the the Rant era of youtube. So I was talking about like people come out on top. leafy was one of those like, one of those businesses, you know, that got bought out by the standard oil company, you know, that would be h3h3 in this specific situation. Which is very strange considering uh h3’s political philosophy, and is supporting someone like Andrew yang. Now let’s talk about Andrew Yang – -- ticipating, I’d lo- I’d I buy dlc for games during this steam summer sale and uhh, having a thousand dollars, would make it much easier to buy. More things on – -- want this car, I want this car so bad but that bike is so much cheaper, which one are you gonna take? Are you gonna take the bike or the car? You’re gonna take the uh, you’re gonna take the bike. So that’s what I’m saying, like you- during the steam sales you always buy worst products, not because um. Simply because they’re cheaper, they’re the cheaper option. You you’d you could buy the Lamborghini but the Lamborghini is not on sale because guess who put that on the store. it was like, the the guys who do like 2k, who doesn’t do anything during the steam sales. You got- so you buy like like a game like bye bye wacky planet, which is a game in my steam library, that I – -- im city 4 deluxe. I have sim city 4 deluxe in my steam library, I’ve opened it one time ever in my entire life, back in uh back in the days of uhh, I think 20..13? And it crashed for half an hour. And that is my- that is how much playtime I have in that game. Um. And I refuse to install it or play it ever again, cause like city sim games are trash. They’re terrible, no one wants to play them. And if you do, there’s like something wrong with you. You gotta have like a like a like a some like kinda masochist kinda thing going. Cause like that’s seriously like the same thing as inflicting like bodily harm on yourself. As like a joke. You play that game to prank yourself. Yeah. Anyway, date me.

Classification as a Mental Illness
Being trans is not classified as a mental illness by either the American Psychological Association or the World Health Organization. Gender dysphoria or incongruence is recognized by both as a medical condition, and transition is the only treatment recognized as effective and appropriate medical response to this condition. A trans person who has completed transition, and who no longer experiences distress because the conditions previously causing it have been corrected, is no longer diagnosed as having dypshoria or incongruence. Transgender no longer recognised as 'disorder' by WHO

Here is a resolution from the American Medical Association on the efficacy and necessity of transition as appropriate treatment for gender dysphoria, and call for an end to insurance companies categorically excluding transition-related care from coverage.
Here are the guidelines from the American Academy of Pediatrics.

Citations for the Reduction in Suicide Rates
Bauer, et al., 2015: Transition vastly reduces risks of suicide attempts, and the farther along in transition someone is the lower that risk gets.
Moody, et al., 2013: The ability to transition, along with family and social acceptance, are the largest factors reducing suicide risk among trans people.
Young Adult Psychological Outcome After Puberty Suppression and Gender Reassignment. A clinical protocol of a multidisciplinary team with mental health professionals, physicians, and surgeons, including puberty suppression, followed by cross-sex hormones and gender reassignment surgery, provides trans youth the opportunity to develop into well-functioning young adults. All showed significant improvement in their psychological health, and they had notably lower rates of internalizing psychopathology than previously reported among trans children living as their natal sex. Well-being was similar to or better than same-age young adults from the general population.
Dr. Ryan Gorton: “In a cross-sectional study of 141 transgender patients, Kuiper and Cohen-Kittenis found that after medical intervention and treatments, suicide fell from 19 percent to zero percent in transgender men and from 24 percent to 6 percent in transgender women.)”
Murad, et al., 2010: "Significant decrease in suicidality post-treatment. The average reduction was from 30 percent pretreatment to 8 percent post treatment. ... A meta-analysis of 28 studies showed that 78 percent of transgender people had improved psychological functioning after treatment."
De Cuypere, et al., 2006: Rate of suicide attempts dropped dramatically from 29.3 percent to 5.1 percent after receiving medical and surgical treatment among Dutch patients treated from 1986-2001.
UK study: "Suicidal ideation and actual attempts reduced after transition, with 63% thinking about or attempting suicide more before they transitioned and only 3% thinking about or attempting suicide more post-transition.
Smith Y, 2005: Participants improved on 13 out of 14 mental health measures after receiving treatments.
Lawrence, 2003: Surveyed post-op trans folk: "Participants reported overwhelmingly that they were happy with their SRS results and that SRS had greatly improved the quality of their lives
the 40% suicide rate is a reference to this study by Dr. Dhejne. The claim that her study shows that transition does not reduce risk of suicide attempts while improving mental health and quality of life is a deliberate misrepresentation popularized by Paul McHugh, a religious extremist and leading member of an anti-gay and anti-trans hate group, who presents himself as a reputable source but publishes work without peer review. His claim to fame is having shut down the Johns Hopkins trans health program in the 70's, which he did not based on medical evidence but on his personal ideological opposition to transition. Johns Hopkins has resumed offering transition related medical care, including reconstructive surgery, and their faculty are finally disavowing him for his irresponsible and ideologically motivated misrepresentation of the current science of sex and gender. That study's lead author Dr. Dhejne had emphatically denounced McHugh and his misuse of her work. If for those who don't trust the TransAdvocate article, she did so again in her Science AMA last year. Edit: Details on Dr. Dhejne's often misrepresented study - it found only that trans people who transitioned prior to 1989had slightly higher risk of suicide attempts than the general public. The author attributed this higher risk to the vicious anti-trans discrimination people who transitioned 29+ years ago experienced. The study found no difference in the risk of suicide attempts among trans people who transitioned after 1989, vs the general public. She is also the primary author the other study I posted below, An analysis of all applications for sex reassignment surgery in Sweden, 1960-2010: prevalence, incidence, and regrets, which found a "regret" rate of 2.2%
Countering Claims of Widespread Transition Regret
This 1% "regret" rate also includes a lot of people who are very happy they transitioned, and continue to live as a gender other than the one they were assigned at birth, but regret that medical error or shitty luck led to low quality surgical results. This is a risk in any reconstructive surgery, and a success rate of about 99% is astonishingly good for any medical treatment. And "regret" rates have been going down for decades, as surgical methods improve.
Care of the Patient Undergoing Sex Reassignment Surgery (SRS) - Persistent regret among post-operative transsexuals has been studied since the early 1960s. The most comprehensive meta-review done to date analyzed 74 follow-up studies and 8 reviews of outcome studies published between 1961 and 1991 (1000-1600 MTF and 400-550 FTM patients). The authors concluded that in this 30 year period, <1% of female-to-males (FTMs) and 1-1.5% of male-to-females (MTFs) experienced persistent regret following SRS. Studies published since 1991 have reported a decrease in the incidence of regret for both MTFs and FTMs that is likely due to improved quality of psychological and surgical care for individuals undergoing sex reassignment.
Countering Claims that Puberty Blockers are Harmful
There is extensive research about long term use of puberty blockers, and they have overwhelmingly been shown to be very gentle and safe. This treatment isn't just used for trans youth - it has been the standard treatment for kids with precocious puberty for decades. Most kids with precocious puberty don't have any underlying medical condition, their early development is just an extreme variation of normal development, but it would still cause serious psychological damage to start puberty at the age of, say, 6. This treatment has no long term side effects; it just puts puberty on hold. Stop treatment, and puberty picks up where it left off.
Countering Claims that Trans People Didn't Historically Exist
Chevalier d'Eon (1728-1810) - French diplomat, spy, freemason, and soldier who fought in the Seven Years' War, who transitioned at the age of 49 and lived the remaining 33 years of her life as a woman.
Albert Cashier (1843-1915) - Trans man who served in the US Civil War.
Harry Allen (1882-1922) - Trans man who was the subject of sensationalistic newspaper coverage for his string of petty crimes.
Lili Elbe (1882-1931) - Trans woman who underwent surgery in 1930 with Dr. Magnus Hirschfeld, who ran one of the first dedicated medical facilities for trans patients.
Karl M. Baer (1885-1956) - Trans man who underwent reconstructive surgery (the details of which are not known) in 1906, and was legally recognized as male in Germany in 1907.
Dr. Alan Hart (1890-1962) - Groundbreaking radiologist who pioneered the use of x-ray photography in tuberculosis detection, and in 1917 he became one of the first trans men to undergo hysterectomy and gonadectomy in the US.
Dr. Michael Dillon (1915-1962) - British physician who updated his birth certificate to Male in the early 1940's, and in 1946 became the first trans man to undergo phalloplasty.
Christine Jorgensen (1926-1989) - The first widely known trans woman in the US in 1952, after her surgery attracted medical attention.
And while until recently there has been no place in modern US/European culture for people with gender identities and lives atypical to their sex at birth to exist publicly, that isn't true in other times and cultures. Throughout the middle east and Asia there have been Hijra visible in public life for hundreds or even thousands of years. The same is true of Kathoey in Thailand, Muxe in Zapotec culture in Mexico, various two-spirit identities found in indigenous American cultures, Māhū in traditional Hawaiian/Tahitian/Maohi cultures, the Fa'afafine of Samoa, Tongan Fakaleiti, the Sworn Virgins of the Balkans, the Galli of Ancient Rome, etc. And of course, humans are not the only animals. While we can't interview animals, and gender identity is harder to identify visually in animals than something like same-gender sexual activity is, we sure as hell have observed a lot of animals displaying instinctive behavior typically associated with the other sex. And there very certainly is evidenceof congenital, neurologically based sexually specific behavior in animals.
2020.09.03 18:37 autobuzzfeedbot19 Real-Life Family Secrets That Are So Juicy, They Should Be Turned Into Movies
"When we were little, my sibling and I were never allowed to tell anyone our names unless our parents approved or answered the phone/front door first. We later learned that it was because our grandfather was a kidnapper and a hit man, and they didn't know if he was trying to find us..."
"After my grandma died, my aunt found her diary, and WOW. Basically, before my grandparents dated, my grandpa was dating another woman. My grandma decided that she wanted my grandpa for herself, and in a Mafia-style warning, she lured his girlfriend into some bushes, and then my grandma and her friends beat the crap out of her..."
"My mom’s uncle faked his own drowning and left to start a new life. His wife and son found out years later."
"My stepmother let it slip that my aunt and uncle were swingers for a long time. They ended up quitting after a guy dropped dead on top of my aunt in a motel during a nooner."
"My grandparents kidnapped my aunt from her front yard in the '30s. She was 3 at the time, her biological mom was a teenager, and her biological dad was in jail and a member of a minority group, so a fight to find my aunt never happened, according to my grandma..."
"My grandma was sleeping with her husband’s nephew (he was 20, and she was 32 at the time). My mom is a product of that relationship. My grandma didn’t tell her until she was 36 years old."
"My ex-boyfriend and I had a newborn and were living with my parents. One night, my dad confessed to me that his wife was sleeping with my boyfriend. He said it'd been happening for a while, and he just didn’t know how to tell me. This wasn’t even the first time she tried to mess around with one of my boyfriends. She also kissed my fiancé."
"One of my uncles had a baby with a woman. After they broke up, my other uncle got that same woman pregnant. We don’t speak to them because of it, and I’ve never known them, but I technically have cousins who are also half-siblings. What the fuck."
"My grandfather has 22 siblings: 11 were from his father and mother, and the other 11 were from his father and his brother's girlfriend."
"My partner's mom, who was one of five, found out after her dad died that he had an entire secret family with five other kids. I guess he took off one day from his first family, met and married her mother, and started a whole new family. It wasn't until both families were mentioned in his obituaries that either family found out about the other."
"After my uncle died, we discovered he had a second wife whom he spent most of his time with. Literally no one on either side knew this for over 25 years. He also purchased the same prefab house, same furniture, and same everything for each of his wives so their houses mirrored each other (and probably helped him to keep his story straight)."
"I thought my stepfather had been awarded custody of my half brother and me in 1990. I found out in 2015 that he actually kidnapped us..."
"My nana's first husband went off to fight in World War II and never came back, so he was assumed dead. My nana was left with my aunt, but she ultimately moved on, remarried, and had more kids. Years later, her first husband came back. He wasn't dead. He had run away with a French woman he met during the war..."
"When my great-uncle died in the '90s, my family went through his stuff before selling the house. They found the dead, decomposed body of a woman in the basement freezer..."
"My aunt mysteriously disappeared before I was born. Her car was found, still running, parked off the side of the road. Her purse was still inside. No one knows what happened to her. They didn’t even fill out a missing person report..."
"My mom revealed that our Dutch ancestors hid a Jewish family in their attic and forged food stamps during World War II. If caught, they would have been killed, so it stayed a secret for a long time. No one in my family knew what happened to the Jewish family after the war. I hope they survived."
"My grandma was kidnapped when she was 12. She was ultimately returned two days later, but everyone pretended like nothing had happened, including her own mother. Everyone refused to talk about it, even to this day. It's so sketchy."
"My great-grandmother was married to my great-grandpa, who was an identical twin. She secretly started sleeping with his twin and got pregnant. To this day, no one knows who the real father is..."
And this: "My great-great-grandma was married to a man she hated. They had a hired hand on their farm, and one day she made a casual comment about how much she hated her husband and wished he was dead. The next day, the husband was murdered, and the helper on the farm was nowhere to be found..."
2020.09.03 03:43 PickleLineDate bills should always be split equally
First, to address the "inviter should pay" argument:
When a woman invites another woman to a "friend date" (e.g. hanging out, grabbing lunch, going to a show, etc.) , most women assume that they will pay for themselves.
When a man invites another man to a "friend date", most men assume that they will pay for themselves.
The norm when not dating is that even if someone is invited, the bill is split. Why are non-equal paying norms and expectations bad?
The man and women have to do the weird ass paying dance. The woman has to wonder "If he pays for me, does he think I owe him something? Will he be offended or feel inadequate if I pay for myself?". The man has to wonder "Will she feel unappreciated or slighted if I don't pay? Will she think I'm not into her? But if I pay, will she think she owes something to me?". This can all be avoided if the cultural norm for dates is going dutch.
Why not alternate who pays?
They have to go through the same dance as noted above to determine who pays first (hint: the man will). Then the person (the woman) who was paid for will feel pressured to go on an extra date to even up the score even if she doesn't want to go on another date. Also, the couple has to waste energy keeping track of who paid last time.
What if one person can't afford the bill?
The peasant should bring that up when the date is being planned.
2020.09.01 03:01 autotldrPainting Deemed Fake, Consigned to Storage May Be Genuine Rembrandt
This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 69%. (I'm a bot)
Titled Head of a Bearded Man, the portrait was donated to the museum in 1951 and displayed as an original work by revered Dutch master Rembrandt. Now, Bearded Man is set to return to public view under decidedly more auspicious circumstances: As the museum announced in a statement, new research has all but confirmed that the painting was created in Rembrandt's workshop-and perhaps even by the Old Master himself. According to Martin Bailey of the Art Newspaper, that same exact wood was used in two other works: Rembrandt's Andromeda Chained to the Rocks and Rembrandt collaborator Jan Lievens' Portrait of Rembrandt's Mother. In February, the Allentown Art Museum in Pennsylvania announced its identification of Portrait of a Young Woman as a genuine Rembrandt. The Rembrandt Research Project had rejected the 1632 painting as an original in 1979, calling the work's authorship into question and downgrading its status to a painting by the artist's studio. A small auction label dated to 1777 and attached to its back identified the work as a Rembrandt painting, but in 1981, the Rembrandt Research Project determined that the work was completed by an artist "Outside Rembrandt's circle" at some point in the 17th century.
2020.08.29 04:55 LegallyParisTo Reach or Not to Reach?
This is the question. On dates I've always at least reached for my wallet to gauge how a man responds to it. If he is anything less than insistent that he is paying for the date, there is not another date. I've had some insist they pay for the date, but something was off (hesitant, grudging, etc). Is this a strategy I should continue to use? I know I'm not supposed to insist on going Dutch or paying for the whole meal, but the Reach is different, right? Or am I looking at this wrong? Also, if not this strategy, what do you ladies do? I'm trying to determine how I should approach the end of dinner / ticket situation.
2020.08.26 17:39 strangeristalkingShould a guy always pay for the first date?
I recently went on a coffee date with this guy and he did not pay. It was a little odd because he went in to place his order before checking whether or not I was close and when I came up behind him he acknowledged me and then stood there to watch me take my order without even offering to pay. Now I am very self sufficient and I can afford my own coffee and I don’t mind going dutch with the person I’m with but I generally feel like the man (or whoever initiated the date) should pay the very first time you go out. What are your thoughts? Edit: I added the “whoever initiates” for the non straight couples. As a bi woman I expect to pay when I ask another woman out.
We are individualizing as people, as Muslims.We are just self-centered and just think of ourselves and our close circle.We thought the world was permanent.Good , pleasant life has become our only goal.Better houses,better cars,better clothes.Whereas this world, It is a distressed station where we wait to go to our eternal accommodation.Allah(c.c.) didn't tell us that this world is a paradise,win the exam and go to paradise.Let's wake up and come to ourselves.This place is the world, this is where we live short,troubled and finally die.Let's realize our purpose of arrival, what we will do and who we are.We are Muslim and Muslim are brothers,we are the ummah of the Muhammad(sav).the Ummah sent for all humanity and we have duties. My purpose of writing this book, show to new Muslim generations and worldly Muslims, where their brothers have been raped and persecution, torture.Our heart must be whining! Your sister is being raped ,your brother has been tortured for years.What a pity if you can't empathize! They are persecuted only because they are Muslims, because Islam is right case.If you don't help your brother, Allah(c.c) asks us! Let's come to ourselves! Let's have a noble temper! Let us be a worthy ummah of our prophet(a.s.m.).Let's notice and act before it's late. Selamun Aleykum East Turkestan Uighurs are trying to survive their religious freedom, fearing their lives under years of Chinese occupation.The Chinese government has been implementing an ethnic cleansing policy for Uighurs since 1949, when it dominated East Turkestan and called the region Xinjiang, or "The Won Land".Tens of thousands of East Turkestans have been slaughtered, imprisoned and forced to emigrate since the founding of the People's Republic of China.Our Muslim female brothers were raped.rape was considered normal.Assimilation and repression policies continue continuously in east Turkestan territory where prayer, fasting, free travel, religious education are restricted. East Turkestan is in the west of China; It is located in the middle of Central Asia. Since it was the center of the Turkish empires and the homeland of the Turks, it was called "Turkistan", which means the homeland of the Turks in the 7th century. In 1949, the Mao administration invaded East Turkistan and changed its name to "Xinjiang Uighur Autonomous Region". According to official figures given by Chinese sources, the size of the East Turkestan geography is 1,600,000 km2 and its population is 20 million 500 thousand.However, contrary to the Chinese government, it is claimed that the real surface area of East Turkestan is 1,823,418 km² and the Uighur population is over 40 million.- The Chinese government has adopted its main mission to dissolve uighur and Kazakh Turks, the main element of the region.Population balance in the region has changed significantly as a result of the Chinese administration's "smelting policy".Today, 54% of east Turkestan's population is Uighur and Kazakh Turks, while the rest are Chinese.In 1949, however, the Chinese population was 3%. In this smelting policy, the elimination of children, seen as surplus while in the womb, stands out as a method.Tens of thousands of women and children die every year because of abortion and forced sterilization practices; pregnant women's wives are dismissed if they are civil servants and are deprived of all social rights. The war against the religion and spiritual values that communist regimes have placed on the target board manifests itself with the most extreme practices in East Turkestan.For example, worship such as prayer, fasting and hajj of employees in government institutions is considered illegal activity.In order to receive any duties or promotions in the state, you must become a member of the Communist Party.Membership in a party in society means having an privilege in all aspects of life.If a member of the Communist Party committed a felony of execution, his sentence could be reduced to life imprisonment.More clearly, the minimum treatment that a person should see is only done to members of the Communist Party.But the cost of being a member of the Communist Party is quite high; Whether a party member is an officer or an ordinary citizen, it is forbidden to believe in religion by party statute.-Students are prohibited from performing religious obligations such as prayer and fasting, whether at school or outside of school. It is very difficult to give the exact number of clergy killed by Red China in the 60 years that Turkestan lived under occupation.However, 120,000 clerics were known to have been executed between 1949 and 1952 alone.- When we look at historical sources, we see that the number of mosques built in East Turkestan is quite high.Unfortunately, there are very few people who have survived these mosques.Because Red China has implemented policies for mosques to free the people of East Turkestan.Between 1949 and 1979, 29,000 mosques were destroyed in East Turkestan.Undestroyed mosques were used as pigbarns, military barracks, warehouses or cinemas, theatre satison.In East Turkestan, this situation has recovered a little after Mao's death, but he has been prosecuted to this day.For example, since 1997, 1218 mosques have been forcibly closed in the Hoten region alone, and 939 mosques have been razed.- Whether women are civil servants or housewives, it is considered illegal activity to go to the mosque.Those under the age of 18 are also prohibited from entering mosques with students or not!! It is imperative that the congregation of each mosque perform their prayers in their own mosque.It is considered illegal for someone to go to a mosque in a neighborhood other than a mosque in their neighborhood.Therefore, these people should be punished.It is forbidden to read the adhan with speakers in mosques. It is also forbidden to perform teravih prayers in mosques other than central mosques. In the higher education institutions that teach in Uighur language, it is mandatory for all courses to be Chinese.Lecturers who cannot explain the lessons in Chinese are pressured to evacuate their positions.This law, which aims to exclude those who do not speak Chinese from society, also aims to completely Chineseize future generations by forgetting its identity, nation, independence, religious faith and native language to the people of East Turkestan. In the higher education institutions that teach in Uighur language, it is mandatory for all courses to be Chinese.Lecturers who cannot explain the lessons in Chinese are pressured to evacuate their positions.This law, which aims to exclude those who do not speak Chinese from society, also aims to completely Chineseize future generations by forgetting its identity, nation, independence, religious faith and native language to the people of East Turkestan. I give you an example of persecution, we are really sad. Forcing Han Chinese and Uighur women to live together, the Chinese Government aims to change the ethnic structure in East Turkestan with systematic rapes. Married women send their husbands to prison and replace them with chinese men.Uighur women are forced to stay in the same house as men from Han Chinese with the disgusting practice called 'Unite and Be A Family'. As a result, they have no choice but to get married.Han Chinese have been raping Uighur women under the name of marriage for years. Hooray hill for cruels ! 📷 Afghanistan Afghanistan, one of the poorest countries in the world, has a population of about 30 million.Almost half of this population is children. The whole country is almost Muslim.Twenty-three refugees from every thousand In 1919, he gained independence from a ostensible British control.A short-lived attempt at democracy ended in a coup in 1973 and a communist counter-coup in 1978.The Soviet Union invaded the country in 1979, triggering a long and destructive war to support the Afghan communist regime, which had difficulty staying in power.Hundreds of thousands of people have been martyred. The USSR withdrew in 1989 after international forces backed up anticommunist mujahideen.A series of civil wars. Afghanistan has rich underground resources that are not yet untouched.There are very rich coal and iron deposits on Afghan soil, which are still dependent on exports in many areas, as well as copper, lead, berilyum and zinc. The country's rich hydro power potential is unavailable due to poverty. and in the target of many countries.The September 11, 2001 attacks have launched a new era for Afghanistan. The United States blamed the al-Qaeda group and its leader Osama Bin Laden for the attack in Afghanistan, asking the Taliban, which ruled the country, to close al-Qaeda bases and hand bin Bin Laden over to the United States. On October 7, 2001, a new war began in Afghanistan when US and British aircraft launched airstrikes against Taliban and al-Qaeda targets after the Taliban rejected the request.The 13-year war has been the scene of major debate and human rights abuses. Afghanistan is a victimand oppressed country where wars, occupations, political turmoil and conflicts never end.In 1979, thousands of people were killed and tortured in the country as a result of the Soviet Union's occupation of the United States and coalition forces in 2001.Millions of them had to migrate to the surrounding countries. The growing poverty, political instability and conflict have plunged Afghanistan into great chaos.This has made it difficult for the lives of the people of the country. Deaths, poverty and substance abuse in Afghanistan, where life and property cannot be ensured, never leave the public. 📷 Africa And africa .oppressed continent.Material and spiritual exploitation since it was discovered by civilized states.?!

The white man also committed one of his massacres in Namibia.Today, German authorities who want to bring up the events of 1915 do not even want to remember the Nama and Herora massacres. Germany occupied Namibia from 1885 to 1915.this invasion of the Germans was neither like the Invasion of the Portuguese nor the British. Instead of an exploitation scheme for dominating or embracing, they chose a model for destruction and carnage. More than 100,000 Nama and Herero women were killed without saying the child was elderly.In the Kalahari desert, the bodies of locals were eaten for days by wild animals like lions. Drinking water was poisoned to kill the surviving locals, their pastures were burned.From 1885 to 1915, the number of locals they killed was over 600,000. Many local women were raped and impregnated in camps that did not end up killing alone.Today, the community, which is referred to as a hybrid, is nothing more than the legacy of these wild German soldiers. It's been 25 years since the genocide took place in Rwanda.In a hundred days, nearly a million moderate Hutu and Tutsi were brutally killed by Hutu militia.a million human !In particular, the United States and France were able to watch this crimes against humanity.In fact, France has been proven to contribute to genocide. Everyone heard of the Algerian massacre. Algeria, which lived peacefully and peacefully under Ottoman rule for many years, was first occupied by France on June 14, 1830. France has started a systematic study in the region and has tried to assimilate the Algerian people with both ethnic and cultural assimilated offices in most parts of Algeria.Arabic and Berber are banned, French have become the only dominant language, and people's freedom of religion is disrupted. The French army has resorted to a brutal path against the Algerian people who want to get rid of colonial rule; The bombings with the air force, the chemical weapons used, the torture scarring people were tried to intimidate.Despite all the practices and massacres, the Algerian people never gave up their struggle for independence. The most horrific massacres were in 1945.He survived the invasion of Nazi Germany in World War II, when Algerian youth fought for France.In exchange for his help to France, Algeria only wanted independence. But France broke its promise.He sent his army to the squares where the celebrations were held. Cities and villages in Sétif and Guelma were bombed, innocent people were shot, thousands of people were slaughtered without the name of women, children, elderly.About 45,000 people whose only crime was to seek independence were brutally murdered.A massacre was carried out by France, particularly in violent clashes between 1954 and 1962, killing 1.5 million Algerians.. What I'm sorry about here is that most Algerian youths now love France . The official language of 27 of the 54 countries in Africa is French. Almost all countries have been persecuted in Africa. Here are some of the countries whose civilized state is the colonies of France; Benin, Burkina Faso, Guinea-Bissau, Ivory Coast, Mali, Niger, Senegal, Togo, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Chad, Congo-Brazzaville, Equatorial Guinea and Gabon.There are more colonial countries that maybe we do not know.France has become rich here by killing and raping millions, committing torture, genocide.civilization state ! Hooray hell for oppressors ! On the other hand, the states that have been left to poverty , most of whom are Muslims , Somalia Ethiopia Mali Niger Burkina Faso Tanzania and many other states.Tens of millions of brothers and sisters there are starving and in drought.They can't find clean water.They're starving and dying of thirst.Newborn babies and children die due to various diseases due to the higen-free environment.Women make excuses for children every day because there are no food.They boil the stone in the pot(look like soup).Dads work hard all day for 1 cup of water.Our brothers are hungry and thirsty.They don't even have shoes to wear.We are romp from wealth and abundance.We can't give account. And we have to do something for our hungry brothers. Every 1 minute our brother dies of starvation. 📷 Arakan Rohingya Muslims are one of the most persecuted ethnic groups in the world, according to United Nations reports.About 3.5 million Rohingya Muslims live worldwide.An estimated 800,000 of them live in their homeland, Arakan, and are still persecuted and tortured. Mynamar's government, which doesn't even take UN officials into the country, is committing genocide against our brothers and sisters.state-sponsored by Buddhist gangs.The Myanmar government's policies, which ignore Rohingya Muslims, attacks by Buddhist gangs, are aimed at extinct muslims from fertile land.Since 1784, Arakan Muslims have been subjected to great persecution on different dates.One of the largest of these took place in March 1942.Buddhist Rakhines attacked Muslims in the village of Çanbilli in the town of Minbya, slaughtering women, men and children in the village with swords and spears.Rakhines brutally murdered women after raping them, looting the area after the massacre.At least 150,000 Arakan Muslims were massacred and villages were looted and razed to the ground in the attacks, which began in the village of Minbya and spread throughout Arakan and lasted nearly 40 days.The last of the Buddhist attacks took place in June 2012, and thousands of Muslims were killed.several Arakan Muslim women were raped by Myanmar soldiers.hundreds of thousands of them have left the country.Almost all the villages are burning.At the moment Arakan Muslims are not considered citizens in Myanmar, they are not even given identities. 📷 Bosnia They kill kids with a little bullet, don't they, Mom? This massacre, carried out on July 11, 1995, is one of the blackest pages in human history.It was the largest massacre in Europe since World War II. 8,372 people died in the massacre.In July 1995, during the Yugoslav civil war, the Serbian army invaded in Srebrenica as part of operation 95 Krivaya. They identified the homes of Muslims, carried out a great massacre.Because at least 8,372 people have been killed by a heavily armed Serbian army in Srebrenica.On that day, .Ratko Miladiç (head of army,murderer) used the following phrases: "Finally, it is time to take revenge on the Turks(Muslims) in this land.".Thousands of people died in the massacre.Thousands of Muslims have been tortured.thousands of women have been raped by Serbian soldiers.Neither the United Nations declared Srebrenica a safe zone nor prevented the military massacre of 600 Dutch Peacekeepers in the city.The United Nations has again been ineffective. Srebrenica massacre and genocide in Europe were engraved in The History of the World. 📷 Central African Republic Before the massacre began in 2013, Muslims accounted for 10% of Central Africa's population of 5 million.The total number of Muslims in the country is currently unknown, with even official officials refusing to count the number of Muslims killed.There are people who say we have no Muslim brothers.More than 1 million people left their homes after the events that began in December 2013 in the Central African Republic, where different ethnicities coexist.Thousands of people have been killed.more than 2 million people have become unable to meet their basic needs.As Christian gangs began slaughtering Muslims without saying women, children, elderly, large migrations took place from the country.Gangs called Balaka carried out executions, especially by raiding Muslim villages, mosques and houses.The activities of balaka gangs, which have engaged in inhuman acts such as slitting children's throats, slitting pregnant women's bellies, feeding crocodiles alive, are eyeing the activities of the French in the region.As persecution continues against Muslims in the Central African Republic, hundreds of thousands of Muslims are fighting for their lives in refugee camps in Chad and Cameroon.Almost all of the mosques were destroyed.Most of us don't even know this country. 📷 Chechnya The population in Chechnya, under Russian rule, is about 1.5 million.Thousands of Chechens can't go home because they are in life-threatening danger.Some of the countries they have sheltered deport chechens and hand them over to the pro-Russian Chechen government.In December 1940, when Russian troops invaded the territory of Chechnya, the Chechen-Russian War began.and thousands of Chechen mujahideen were killed.After this war ended on August 30, 1996, a cross-party peace agreement was signed on 12 May 1997.Russia again attacked Chechnya in October 1999, violating the agreement.With human rights violations during the war, Russia targeted hospitals, maternity homes, markets, settlements and convoys of refugees until the end of the war.More than 1500 Chechens were arrested, men were tortured by electric currents, looted houses and seriously questioned thousands of Chechens without saying children, women and old men. The part that could never be put in place was to try to make a deaf and mute Chechen speak by making the most severe tortures, especially the electric current.According to the reports of the High Commissioner for Refugees of the United Nations, approximately 500 thousand Chechens became refugees after the 2nd Chechen-Russian War. The Russian army massacred hundreds of thousands of people, tortured them, and raped women,little girls.The war ended in 2009 with the establishment of a pro-Russian Chechen government. And this government is a butler of Russia. The pressure on our Chechen Muslim brothers still continues. 📷 Egypt During this time, the Pharaohs, Byzantines, Fatımis, Eyyubis, Mamluks, Ottomans and The British dominated Egypt, which dates back thousands of years.The country, which has a population of about 90 million, is still in a critical position for the Middle East.Ottoman became the focal point because of its position after withdrawing from the country.The February 2011 revolution, which ended the regime of Hosni Mubarak, who ruled the country with corruption and repression for years, was greeted with joy in the entire Islamic world.In the elections after the revolution, Muhammad Mursi, the candidate of the Muslim Brotherhood, became the country's first democratically elected president.Mursi's election promised a stable legal process in the country, but the intended failed.First, the constitutional court's decisions made parliament dysfunctional, then the media work, which was funded from abroad with huge sums and constantly deroded Mursi's image in the public way, destabilised the stability.After the july 2013 military coup, peaceful demonstrations by people who opposed this lawlessness in Egypt were severely suppressed, killing thousands of people.and leaving persecution.To break the will of the people and to ensure that he submits, the junta regime, which refers to all kinds of human rights violations, is to make unlawful arrests without saying women, elderly, children; he began to issue harsh sentences and death sentences that were not based on any valid legal practice.and thousands of people were imprisoned.Sisi, who has been in charge of the coup, is supported by the Saudi Arabia, Arab Emirates and the United States.Now our Muslim brothers are under pressure 📷 Iraq Having a say over rich oil reserves after the Ottoman collapse was the main policy of Western countries in this region.Clashes, repressions and occupations were not missing in the history of the country, whose borders were set to rulers after World War I.Since 1980, nearly 1.5 million people died in the country, which has been plagued by war, embargo and internal tensions, with the u.S. invasion in 2003.Thousands of people have been tortured unimaginably.thousands of Muslim siblings have given birth to American children.women have been raped in front of their husbands.The war in Iraq has never ended since.Millions of people were displaced and forced to migrate.The U.S. withdrawal in 2011 did not end the conflict and chaos that pushed into the country, and Iran's growing influence on the region has caused confusion.Persecution and torture in Iraq continue as a result of the discriminatory and repressive policies of the governments that came to power in the country.America and Iran still keep our brothers and sisters under pressure.Hooray hell ! for the wrongdoers. 📷 Kashmir About 4 million people live in Kashmir territory.Muslims make up 90% of this population.When Kashmir gained independence from Britain's colony in 1947, it remained an unsolvable problem between India and Pakistan since then.India invaded Kashmir. Today, 80% of Kashmir is controlled by India and 20% by Pakistan.To date, serious human rights violations have been carried out in the remaining part of Kashmir in the Indian occupation.There has been severe pressure against the Muslim people of Kashmir who oppose the occupation and seek independence.As a result of these pressures, more than 70,000 Kashmiris have been killed so far, and more than 1.5 million Kashmiris have been displaced.Kashmir remains an unsolvable problem between the two countries, while Muslims continue to live under persecution.Our brothers are under pressure by Indian forces. 📷 Crimea In World War II, Crimean Tatars were persecuted and exiled from their homeland by the Russians.Crimea, which has a population of about 2 million, is now a minority of 350,000 Tatar Muslims.Tatars, who began to return to their homeland in the late 1980s with the dissolution of the Soviet Union, have been fighting for 30 years to keep their religion and culture alive in very difficult circumstances .Crimeans , who lived under the flag of Ukraine and lost their grandfathers and fathers in exile, were treated as third-class people since they returned to their homeland.They faced constant pressure and obstacles by disenfranchised religious, cultural and social rights.With Russia annexing Crimea in 2014, the country became a territory affiliated with the Russian Federation.The Russians and Ukrainians living in Crimea see Russia's declaration of Crimea as a new opportunity, while Crimean Tatars, with their population of around 350,000, are trying to maintain their hopes for the future.Tatars, who are forced to choose between Ukraine and Russia, are looking for ways to carry out rights struggles in unity.There are more than 200,000 deaths.Thousands of our brothers were tortured, raped by Russian soldiers.More than 300,000 deportations.there is now a state of repression. 📷 Moro Moro Muslims have been fighting for independence against the Philippines for many years, and today it has a population of about 5 million.Moro Muslims, who lived in their own independent states until the 20th century, lost independence in 1946 when the U.S. colonial rule was released to the Philippine government of the region.Until a few years ago, when there were heavy conflicts, millions of people became refugees; In Moro, where he has been subjected to numerous rights violations such as attacks, detentions and torture, more than 120,000 people have been killed in ongoing conflicts between the Philippine state and Moro Muslims for more than 40 years, and 2 million have been forced to live as refugees.The peace process, which began in 2012, hopes to establish bangsamoro autonomous region today.The Bangsamoro, Autonomous Region, which will be established in Mindanao, one of the three main island communities of the Philippine state, is a major gain for the outcome of the struggle of the Moro people.Now the hopes for a lasting peace in the region are much stronger.Allah(c.c.) help them in the resistance of our brothers and sisters. Amin ! 📷 Palestine And Palestine, the privacy of Muslims.Masjid al Aqsa, our first qibla.Palestine, the holy site of the heavenly religions, is a geography that has been the center of attention of many communities throughout history. The Ottomans protected Palestine for hundreds of years.They knew they couldn't take Palestine as long as it was ottoman.But all the great forces were together with zionists, destroying the Ottoman empire from the inside and outside.the Zionists set up Israel, and became a neighbor to Palestine .In the last century, the Zionist Jewish occupation was the scene of greater atrocities than ever before. Muslims were removed from their homes, displaced, exiled, imprisoned,slaughtered.Thousands of people were killed and tortured.The blockades and massacres committed by the occupying State of Israel to the Muslim people were never over ,ısrael had condone Palestine and attempted to take its land.Thousands of Muslims were killed, especially as a result of air and ground attacks in Gaza.Turning into an open-air prison in Gaza, basic needs such as electricity, food and health are becoming increasingly difficult to address.The persecution of Muslims has been going on for a century..We can't make our voices heard in a collective way by Islamic states. Even some Arab states supported Israel..They invaded They invaded Jerusalem.they invaded our private.we didn't make a sound.We are muted. 📷 Patani Patani is one of four administrative districts with Muslim majority, despite being affiliated with the Buddhist rule in Thailand.Malay (Malaysian) Muslims make up about 88% of its population.Although the languages they use are Close to Malaysia in Malaysian and Thai.They're trying to make the world known as South Thailand, not Patani. Since 1909, the Thai government has been trying to change the demographics by bringing Buddhist civilians to Patani continuously.Patani is called "Palestine of South Asia" because the Buddhist government is conducting the same policy as Zionist Israel.The people of Patani, who were constantly attacked by Thai soldiers, are estimated to have killed 20,000 so far.More than 30,000 people have been imprisoned by the Buddhist government.In February 2004, an attack on a mosque was carried out by the invading Thai soldiers and 36 Muslims were killed.Thai soldiers who also intervened in the people who staged the demonstration in order to condemn the massacre also killed 83 more people and arrested more than 200 others.There are checkpoints set up by Thai soldiers in the city, where attacks on civilians by the army have been routinely made.The Buddhist administration, which has repeatedly put pressure on the Muslim people, receives the greatest help from Israel and the United States in preventing patani persecution from the world.Although resistance groups continue to fight against Buddhist persecution, they are unable to achieve victory because they do not receive sufficient support from Muslim countries! 📷 Syria Everyone knows the persecution in Syria. The last eight years of Syria, which has a population of 25 million, have been driven into civil war with the regime's massacres.Minimum 400,000 dead, 7 million refugees.The Syrian people, who have been fighting against persecution, oppression, corruption and poverty for nearly 60 years, are again facing a large mass slaughter today.The civil war, which began in March 2011 and is still ongoing, has killed more than 400,000 people and displaced millions.the country's head killer continues to kill his own people.Regime soldiers tortured all kinds of torture.thousands of people were injured.women were raped in front of their husbands.Increasing the number of people affected by the crisis and continuing to inflict great wounds on the lives of both society and individuals, it is imperative that efforts to solve the problem be increased.Almost half of Syria's population of 25 million is in need of humanitarian assistance.Nearly 7 million people have taken refuge in neighboring countries as refugees.Right now, the regime is still bombing our Muslim brothers and sisters.And Syria is now fragmented . Iran-backed terrorist organizations in Syria.american-backed terrorist organizations.There are activities of a Russian-backed terrorist organization and many states.Russia and Iran(supposedly Muslim country) are the regime's protects.If it wasn't for Turkey, death and persecution would have increased more. 📷 Uzbekistan Muslims make up the majority of Uzbekistan's population of 30 million.According to a 2014 report by Human Rights Watch, there are 12,000 detainees in the country for religious reasons, while torture in prisons has become routine.Uzbekistan gained independence on 1 September 1991 after the dissolution of the Soviet Union, and Islam Karimov took over the country after a controversial election.Kerimov painted a portrait away from his own people and culture in all aspects, arresting thousands of people who opposed him, shutting down dozens of radios, newspapers and televisions.The Kerimov administration, which also prevented the Uzbek people from living freely, closed mosques in the country; He had those who grow beards arrested those who prayed and banned hijabs in public places.Karimov, who is still the country's head of state, continues his repressive and prohibitive stance.In Uzbekistan, which came up again with the news that mass iftars were banned during Ramadan, students were banned from praying at the mosque at all times, especially teravih.It is forbidden to grow beards, teach others the Koran even in their own home, to make pilgrimage to young people, to talk about Islam on the street, to wear Islamic clothes, or even to take religious lessons in schools for men. 📷 Yemen In Yemen, where one of the world's worst humanitarian disasters is taking place, 22 million people are in urgent need of humanitarian aid and protection, which account for nearly three-quarters of the population.The United Nations says that every 10 minutes a child under the age of 5 is the victim of a preventable death.Yemen went into a spiral of violence in 2014 when the Shia Husi militia and its allies increased their dominance of the country at gunpoint and coupd against the legitimate government in the capital, Sana.Tensions have escalated in the country since Saudi Arabia and the other Arab-led coalition launched operations against the Houthis in March 2015 to restore the legitimate government.The war in its fourth year has brought Yemen's weak economy and infrastructure to a level of destruction and turned into drama, described by the United Nations (UN) as "the world's greatest humanitarian catastrophe." In the country, women and children are at the top of the vulnerable list.Boys are forcibly armed by groups, while girls are forced into marriage at an early age so they can survive.A quarter of school-age children are deprived of education and nearly 2,500 schools cannot be damaged or educated and most importantly, one mother and one child die every 10 minutes.hundreds of thousands of brothers died.These are our brothers!The persecution here is because of Saudi Arabia and Arab Emirates. What a shame ! 📷 Leaders And our heads of state There are many oppressed geographies.There are so many Islamic state.why don't they gather and make a sound! Almost all Muslim countries have unmerited presidents.Most dictators (Muslim Middle East states).Even from the presidents who see themselves as prophets.There's no need to count Arab countries, you know.Corruption exists in all Muslim state rulers.Muslim countries can't be ruled like Muslims because of money and ambition for authority.In my opinion, the our Prophet(sav) informed us with the rulers of the Islamic State at the end times .Please look at t Hadiths in Bukhari. I think we have entered the end times or we're only a little short time to enter.Let's put on and secure our seat belts(our belief,credo). Islamopbohia Islamophobia means hatred, discrimination, hostility and hatred towards Muslims.This idea, which came out as a project in Europe, which sees itself a land of civilization, is directed towards Muslims.Mainly in Europe Australia and America.These hatred acts and discourses against Muslims lead to polarization.Thousands of Muslims are slaughtered, killed.mosques are being burned.books are being burned.Muslims are being insulted.The states are quiet.maybe they like it.but civilized!They're calling the police because he's a Muslim.This idea is increasing and more effectively.hatred and hatred are increasing every day.We as Muslims must stand together, we must look out for each other and tell them islam in a beautiful way.Those who want to wear out Islam by projecting and setting traps do not know this.Islam is the sun.U can't touch it.Allah (c.c) is the most auspicious of the conspirators. 📷 And as I've stated, my main purpose in writing this book is to open our eyes,especially young and worldly Muslims.I was so upset when I wrote the book.I cried from time to time.Maybe u too while you're reading.I didn’t give much details in this book . I couldn’t.The details are full of sadness.ı give you a painful example.in countries that are persecuted for example Palestine,Iraq ,Syria.The husbands maimed in front of their wives, became unable to do anything.in front of husbands eyes.their wives, daughters, their mothers, they were raped by dozens of oppressors.they got pregnant.I wonder if we can empathize.can we put ourselves in the situation of that husband or woman.we can't stand it!don't forget that woman, husband is our brother.we're still silent!let's act! like a Muslim. I'd like to point out that they have the most powerful weapons. we have just stone. we won Best regards, Selamu aleykum resources:İHH,İNSAMER,Wikipedia Newspapers:Sabah,Yenişafak,Sözcü,Milli,RushanAbbasYeniçağ,Akit,Ömer Polat ,diyanethaber eyüp demir , ibrahim tığlı ,AAMustafa Efe
2020.08.23 14:35 PipPippelingI am 44 years old make $115,000, live in Amsterdam and work as a policy maker
Not so short introduction: Woman, 44, American Dutchie (Dutch mum, American dad), recently single again, living alone in Amsterdam. Other than the mortgage for my apartment I do not have debts. Not even study loans (bless the Dutch education system and Erasmus program). I used to be a ballerina (started balletschool when I was 7, graduated from the Royal Academy and worked for the Dutch National Ballet until I retired at 31) I went back to university and graduated law school. I am specialized in human rights. Nowadays I work as a policy maker for the Dutch government. I have an 3 bedroom apartment in the center of Amsterdam which I bought 20 years ago with help from my parents. (They cosigned my mortgage, but I’ve always paid the mortgage myself.) I used to rent 2 bedrooms out to cover my costs when I was dancing and in uni. Just before corona hit, I redid my entire apartment; double glazing, all the wires for gas, electricity, outlets, kitchen, bathroom, paintwork - everything, which I paid for with my savings ($60,000). The remaining mortgage is around $296,450 and current worth of the apartment is $1,100,000 (I am not kidding Amsterdam house prices have gone insane). I know thanks to the refurbishing, I needed an estimate for my insurances from a real estate agent. Pensions in the Netherlands are different from the US; first we get a government pension from a certrain age (which for me probably will be when I turn 70). It’s around minimum wage. Secondly, all employees and most employers will pay for our pension. You save that with a specialized pension fund. You can’t touch the money. When you turn the required age you get a monthly income. For me that would be about 2/3 of my current income. I have only $2,900 in savings left due to refurbishing my apartment. No creditcard debts, I pay my credit card bill every month. Main Job Monthly Take Home: $4490 Here is the take down: $7,555 gross a month minus $626 pension contribution and $2,439 taxes. I also receive a fully paid public transport card for anything work related. Also my work laptop and work iPhone are fully paid for. My gym membership is $71 a month but reimbursed by work. Best part of being a civil servant in the Netherlands 12 weeks of paid holidays a year. Well, before corona this used to be a perk... Expenses Mortgage $1,215 Home owners association fee $29.65 Water $21.34 (monthly, billed every 3 months) Gas/electricity $86.56 Life insurance $9 (it used to be mandatory when buying a house, basically if a home owner dies the family doesn’t have to worry about the mortgage) Health insurance $143.48 - this covers everything that is qualified care. Other insurances (legal, home, travel) $23.72 Mobile phone $27.27 (yes, even with a fully paid for workphone I have a personal phone) Cable/wifi/internet $80.63 Newspapers and magazines $30.24 (I have a paper, monthly fashion magazine and a magazine on running, plud NY times esubscription - full luxury) Spotify $9.99 Apple iCloud storage $0.99 Netflix $10.99 City taxes $50.49 Environment and waste taxes $33.75 Vitamines $13.04 (monthly, receive twice a year) Personal trainer $260 Massage once a month $100 Donation to the National Ballet & Opera $260 Donations to animal shelter $15 Donation to Amnesty International $25 Various donations to research $100 Monthly savings should be $1,200 but I haven’t done this since mid March. I don’t have a driver’s license. I do everything by bicycle, walking or public transport. Day 1 total spent $66.99 7.30 I took a week off and temperatures got really high this week which resulted in a week where I did totally nothing except going to parks and riverside. I do some yoga to wake up, shower, put sunscreen on, a bikini and a sundress, grab my beach bag and a botte of water from the freezer and cycle to a park/beach like area. It’s really quite in the morning and after 20 minutes I am ready for another tropical day. I roll out my towels, have a protein chocolate shake for breakfast and eat some berries. After that: time to read. I am finishing ‘Rodham’ and it’s quite entertaining. 10.00 I reapply more sunscreen (am I the only one who is single and wondering how to apply sunscreen to my back?), stroll to a beachstand and get myself a cappuccino to go, I grab a lemon poppy muffin along ($4.55) Back to my towel and I text some friends to see how they are coping with the heat. Not well. My sister tells me my oldest niece refuses to leave the pool and has decided she will become a mermaid. 14.00 The park and beach are getting busier. I pack my bag and cycle back home. One of the perks of an old apartment is very high ceilings and inside my apartment it is relatively cool. I make a leftover salad for lunch with some eggs. 17.00 I ordered groceries from a new company and they deliver. It’s from farmers markets and really fresh plus top quality and therefore a bit more expensive than what I would normally pay. On the brightside: I don’t have to go to supermarkets. Total costs of groceries that will last me at least a week and a half: $62.44 Amsterdam is one of the two cities in the Netherlands were face masks are mandatory in some busy shopping streets. I do not know who made the map for Amsterdam, but it feels really random and also, the supervisory sucks. My solution: not going to the shops (for now at least) I’d ordered fruit popsicles and can’t resist them. Pear flavor and they are good (yes, plural, I ate two) 19.30 I call my mum (you will read this a lot) and she is really not doing well with the heat. Most Dutch homes don’t have airconditioning. She has, in her bedroom, but doesn’t want to use it all the time, which I find ridiculous and I make her go to her bedroom and just sit in the coolness. I don’t want to cook dinner so eat some carrots, cucumber, tomatoes, cashew nuts and drink a lot of Coke Zero with ice and lemon. 21.00 I do some more yoga. As a former ballerina everyone assumes I like yoga. I do not. However, it is something I can do everywhere and anytime and I feel better after I do it. I should make this my mantra: I feel better afterwards. I really do. I’ve been quite depressed after my relation ended and corona quarantine hit so with this week I started to reintroduce structure to my day. Well, I tried... 21.30 One of my friends has just started online dating and I am a bit annoyed with her; she doesn’t let one of us know when she spends the night with a man (ahh the dating life) Turns out I am not the only one fuming at her and she promises to do better. I am also a bit jealous of her; I just can’t get used to the idea to date in the current situation. 22.45 I move to my bedroom, turn the fan on and watch Netflix (and eat chocolate) until I fall a sleep which is already the next morning. Day 2 total spent $31.48 7.30 It is Saturday and I wake up at 7.30. Why? I am terrible waking up on weekdays but the weekend, no problem usually. So strange. I get up and see that the forecast is really heavy showers and cooler temperatures later. I put on some running shorts and grab my headphones and go for a quick run. Turns out the rain was just waiting for me to be halfway. I get back home as quickly as I can, but I am fully, totally soaked. Saturdays are my selfcare days, so the rest of the morning I am busy in my beautiful bathroom. I wash my hair (Olaplex - takes forever, but very worth it), do a mani and pedi, scrub, put a mask on, the whole shabang. 13.00 Yes, I hadn’t eaten anything or had coffee. That is never a good idea. I quickly make a iced coffee (just black coffee with ice cubes, shoot me) and make pancakes with a lot of syrup. 14.30 I FaceTime my best friend. She is in lock down at her home, ‘cause her sister has corona and she saw her sister. She is also living alone and finds the lock down at home extremely hard, especially with the tropical temperatures. 18.00 This happens a lot. It suddenly is late. How did that happen? I bake some sourdough bread and have that with butter and salt. Order a pink glitter bomb confetti card for my friend, yes, I am that sort of friend. $4.15 19.30 I am rearranging my furniture. My spare bedroom has become my home office and that means I have to find another place for all my workout gear. Spinning bike moves to my bedroom and weights to my dressing room. Order some boxes from Ikea so I can store more stuff under the stairs. Luckily, Ikea homedelivers ($27.33) 22.30 Feeling restless, so I put on a podcast. I listen to one about grief and that wasn’t my best idea... End up crying, feeling anxious and tired, but not so tired I can sleep. Put on Netflix, grab a bag of popcorn (whoever thought of peanutbutter popcorn is a genius), and end up rewatching Lucifer. At least it entertains me till the next morning Day 3 total spent $345.00 7.00 I wake to my phone buzzing and it’s one of my friends who wants to FaceTime. I look like shit, so instead call her back. I suspect my friends made a schedule to make sure I don’t go downhill any further. My fiancé broke up with me mid March and has since moved in with another woman and I have so many questions and basically am just angry. Not good. I love my friends for looking after me , but not at 7 in the morning. 9.00 Finally get out of bed and do laundry and clean my house. But first coffee. I am nearly out of beans and order them from my favorite shop ($57.40) I love cleaning. My mum and I used to joke that we should start a cleaning company together. 12.00 Make brunch with poached eggs, bacon, toasted sourdough and a fruit salad. Clean the kitchen afterwards. Sort all my trash and nearly fall down the stairs while taking down the trash. 15.00 Order flowers for my great grandaunt who trip over a stone and broke her shoulder. She’s 94 and as though as one can be ($27.60 - flowers are so much cheaper here than anywhere else; this is for a big bouquet and includes delivery) 18.30 I call my mum and afterwards my sister. Her husband is an actor and she is a pilates instructor. Both receive corona benefits and are happy that that will see them through for now. I transfer some money to my sis to give her some wiggle room ($260) Day 4 total spent $8.65 6.45 My alarm goes off and here starts the game ‘I do not want to get out of bed, how many times can I snooze?’ Unfortunately, today it is 8h30 when I finally get out of bed. I stretch and do some yoga before making coffee and a big bowl of porridge with honey and raspberries. Yes, I did not shower. I know. I do brush my teeth and wash my face. I put my hair in a bun and put on a sports bra, leggings and a top and trainers. My standard stay at home outfit since mid March. Check in on my team who are not happy that we are still working from home. We all are fully aware it is necessary, but we are so ready to go back to the office. Plans are that as of September we are allowed back once a week (spoiler: later this week the government decided that this was not gonna happen) 12.30 I make lunch: a huge bowl of fresh pasta with homemade tomato sauce and meatballs and call a colleague who is about to start his holidays. He’s going to his parents’ house in France, thankfully by car so he can easily come back if France goes in lockdown again. Freeze the rest of the pasta. 16.00 Snack time: I go out a buy cookies and Coke zero ($8.65) at the shop that is also my post office and pick up some parcels. The shop has big squares on the floor to keep distance. I joke to the shopowner he should get a dice and make it into a game and he enjoys that idea. 19.00 I call it a day and call my mum. As said, we call every day since my father passed away a couple of years ago. She is in good spirits thanks to the rain and I am so happy to hear that. 19.30 Dinner is grilled tuna with tomatoes, freshly baked bread and green beans. Texting friends while making dinner and nearly killing my phone when I smash crash it through the kitchen. 20.30 Tuna is not a smart choice for dinner when you do a spinning session. I take it easy while watching Ricky Gervais’ Humanity on Netflix (I do not know whether or not I like it). I’ve bought a spinning bike to workout from home when the gyms closed. Gyms have reopened but I am still hesitant to go back to the spinning studio ‘cause it is in a room without windows. 22.30 I should go to bed. However, welcome to my head and my spiraling thoughts. After an hour I take a shower and listen to Spotify playlist piano music. It doesn’t work and I end up watching Netflix (Eurovison, it is strange and after that Crazy Delicious) again till the wee hours of the morning. Day 5 total spent $1.15 6.45 Nope, ain’t gonna happen. I get up at 7.30, take a shower and put on exercise clothes. Eat a banana and grab a towel, bottle of water and cycle to meet my trainer. On Tuesdays and Fridays I work out with a personal trainer. We work out at one of the parks nearby unless it’s too hot like it was Friday. 8.30 Back home, shower, get dressed in yoga top and leggings. Picked up a freshly baked croissant ($1.15) Make my usual coffee and enjoy breakfast on my balcony. Tuesdays are really busy at work, full day of Webex and Zoom meetings. Suddenly it’s 13h and I quickly make porridge, this time with apricot jam. My secretary texts me that the minister would like to do an IRL meet in the Hague, would I mind to come to the office on Thursday? I do and don’t - I really need to see other people, but I have to use public transport to get to the Hague and I haven’t done that yet. Mask are mandatory in public transport. Fun fact: although Amsterdam is the capital of the Netherlands, parliament and all the ministries are based in the Hague. 19.00 Quick call to my mum. I attempt to make a stir fry of broccoli, asparagus and green beans with chicken and brown rice but it’s not a huge success. While eating I call a friend who lives in Maastricht. We chat for 4 hours straight and I feel calm and happy afterwards. 23.30 Brush teeth, do skincare routine (the Ordinary serum - it is bright red and I look like I am wounded) and meditate. Day 6 total spent $213.76 6.45 Ugh. Yes, I know. Snooze. Get up at 7.55 and am ridiculously proud of myself. Shower, athleisure wear, breakfast: I make scrambled eggs with toast and butter and my daily dose of caffeine. 8.30 Another endless day of meetings. There was an article in my newspaper that online meetings drain energy much faster than IRL meetings and I fully, wholeheartedly agree. 10.00 Computer says no. Our system just went down. My WhatsApp explodes with complaints. We can access our mail on the phone but no documents are available. I use this as an excuses to do some online clothes shopping for autumn. Sales are on and I need some pants. End up buying black wool pants from my favorite brand and somehow also buy more athleisure wear. More black compression leggings ‘cause well, shut up. Total $213.76 12.30 Early lunch, systems are still down. I make French toast with cinnamon sugar. Really happy with the result and proudly text my mum who is not impressed (somehow I did not inherit my mums cooking gene) I do my laundry in my new laundry room - people, I never knew this a thing, it is, while making some calls and make a to-do list for the rest of the week. System is still down. 16.00 I have a Zoom call with my psychologist. The pandemic and the end of my relation were two triggers that made me fairly depressed and I’ve spent months on my couch or in bed just doing nothing. I feel very lonely at the moment, even with chatting to family and friends. I am not lonely, I feel that way. 17.30 It was a heavy session and I feel worn out. I put on my trainers and go for a stroll. It is strange to walk around in a nearly deserted city. Although tourists are slowly coming back, the numbers are much lower. Unfortunately I do feel like it are all the drinking, drugs doing, screaming tourists. Yes, you can do drugs in the Netherlands. No, most of us have never done drugs. 19.00 I call my mum and we discuss whether she should come to visit this weekend. I say no, mum doesn’t say anything which basically means she will come to see me whether I agree or not. I make another attempt at a stir fry, this time with noodles, shrimps, cilantro, zucchini and bell peppers. Meh. 20.00 On the news the government announces that contaminations are rising again and that we have to keep working from home until further notice. Although totally expected and understandable it hits me hard and I cry than eat chocolate. 21.00 My phone explodes with everyone’s opinions and views what to do now. I text my team to tell them that we will have to work from home until further notice and that I know it is hard. I strongly urge them not to go back to the office unless it is really necessary. I text my boss about tomorrow’s appointment with the minister. It’s still on. 23.00 Bedtime. I’ve had Headspace in the past and wonder if I should try that again. Day 7 total spent $287.98 6.45 I snooze. My therapist says I shouldn’t do it and just set a later alarm. He’s right. Get out of bed at 7 and do some meditation exercises and yoga. Get fully dressed with a suit and heels. Pack my office bag and add hand sanitizer, face masks in plastic bags and wet wipes. 8.00 On the train to The Hague. It is eery to see how quiet the train is. Everyone is wearing a face mask. I like how some have done their best to do something extraordinary: I see a girl with a glitter mask and a man with a spiderman one. This used to be the busiest train: Amsterdam is its start and even than I often had to stand. Not today. 9.00 Arrive at the office and feel quit emotional. Walk to my favorite coffee place and it is deserted. I order a cappuccino to go with a croissant and chat with the barrista ($7.68) The office is deserted. I log in and take a selfie to send to my team. Somehow I work better at the office. I prepare the meeting with the minister and it goes well. Even there we keep distance and the security staff checks in several times. 11.30 Have a coffee appointment with my director. She pays for the coffee. We walk & talk, a lot is about non work topics. After this, I order a salad with bread to go and a green juice for lunch ($17.60) 14.30 I really need new running shoes but am hesitant to go to a store. Ask my physiotherapist for advice and he says to reorder the same ones I already have online. Find my Mizunos and order ($137.59) 16.00 I need something sweet and I need caffeine. Quick dash to our cafeteria and grab a Twix and a bottle of Coke Zero ($7.68). Chat with my secretary through Webex and ask her if she has everything she needs at home. 19.00 It almost feels like a normal workday until I walk to the train. Put mask on and again it is so quiet. I call mum and send her a trainselfie. Start a new book: the latest of Deborah Harkness. I really liked the first 3 books, this one I am on the fence about. Cycle to home from the station and arrive at home at 20.30, make dinner with leftover veggies and some mince meat from the freezer. 21.30 I get an e-mail from my favorite beauty website that the have a sale. I shouldn’t. I have too much stuff. Yeah, I order anyway: Olaplex no. 3 in a big bottle and more stuff form the Ordinary and the Inkey List ($117.43) 23.30 Bedtime! I listen to some piano music and try to go to sleep. Reflections My spending was normal for what I do since quarantine started. I treat myself to too much stuff I find I need and want. It was really insightful to see this and it left me wondering why I do it. Gonna curb my spending and back to a budget ‘cause I do not feel comfortable with so little money in my savings. Sorry for all the complaining in the diary and thanks for reading!

I’m looking for a woman of with a strong foundation of concrete and rebar and like like a like alike a stone, I need a rock. I need a breadwinner. But it needs- I need a lady, who will- who will carry me up the stairs and tuck me into bed and is between the age of 18 to 20 years old and is attractive to my personal specifications. I just want- I just want a high five and a slap on the ass from my beautiful bride-to-be and then I will- she can have all the money and all the cars and all the house—I’m just looking for the love of my life, I’m gonna put an ad in the classifieds, I’m gonna make a craigslist post, I’m gonna be- I’m gonna- the ad’s going to read: “looking for a structurally super — -- hot babe -- -- the stock market has crashed, the world is coming to an end — -- um in case you didn’t know the star wars films are actually based off of the time period of the 1940’s uuuh late 1930’s, mid to mid 1940’s and the star wars films have.. s like cause the stormtroopers -- - uh r saga, the national treasure saga with with the um Nicolas Cage as the main character who’s name I can’t remember is it- I think it was Benjamin — --stroying I need a woman to hold me and I’m so Desperate — -- uuh very comprehensively directed by- I’ve not seen the second national treasure and— -- the dark nature of the harry potter films after the first two… but point is I- she can’t be into the harry potter films. She has to like the national treasure film— -- not seen the film in quite some time, soo uh I’m not a fan of the vacuum cleaner character. Brave little toaster is not. That. Great. Of a plot device? Uhh but what can you say? The- but the vacuum cleaner’s scary. There’s the lamp character, there’s a blanket character, I think the blanket character was supposed to be like an electric blanket umm cause it have like a like a dial on it. I like the blanket character the blanket character is really wholesome. And then there’s also umm the toaster character, which again, I thought was a very cool plot device when I was little but now that I am at the white bald age of 36, I gotta say, it’s not a very good plot device— --non and critique the brave little toaster with me, that’s all I want in a woman. Ack — -- too into the emma, too into the Dutch. I don’t like the Belgians, they did, ahh man the bene- or the whole Benelux region in general is kinda weak. ummm none of them have a- like their own like culture or anything like it’s kinda like discount Germany. A ride across the channel from the uk, I guess that’s pretty cool. But the- but so Belgium is like half French and half Dutch, I don’t even understand— -- and they barely even have any in California, if we’re gonna be honest, The burger king franchise, it’s not like- you think there’d be more of them. I I’ve seen like maybe one and it was attached to a Walmart? I dunno where you even find them. I dunno if it’s like a mid-west or east coast franchise — -- it’s a- it’s very important for her to be of the age of 18 to 20 years old. That is probably the nu- one of the number one features that is required but she also has to be very well-off financially, so that way if twitch collapses in on itself I don’t have to go back to work— -- to do, I’m not quite sure. But, you know, there’s gotta be some way to to summon such a like an ethereal being that is uhh simple for the every man to do. Cause obviously many people have done it, I’ve seen a lot of people with girlfriends. And I just I just don’t know. I don’t know how they do it. I don’t understand. But anyway my ad is out there, you can hit me up on the uhh— -- mick was no longer in the rocky franchise. Um, I think it was after rocky 2, but um, I can’t be too certain, like he could’ve been in rocky- I haven’t seen rocky 3. He could be- I know mr T’s in rocky 3 but that’s really it, I know that rocky is like “ooh I’m hot shit” and he uhh gets his act- his ass kicked by mr T, who’s in the the the- not in g.i. joe, he’s in the a team, which is another media franchise I’ve never seen , and I’m I’m not sure if it’s good? I don’t really know anything about it. I don’t know I don’t know a lot about 80’s media, I know that ghostbusters was — -- malls, same time I unsubscribed from all the political channels, cause like I um, I used to watch the uhh the uh, what’s his what’s his name? the doug walker, uhh what’s his name? The nostalgia critic. When I was when I was in probably the first year of high school – -- so in the one episode of the nostalgia critic, he- wh which one was I talking about? The uh sorry, dash roamed (?), dash unmuted and made me lose my train of thought for a minute. I can’t remember which episode of the nostalgia critic I was talking about. But um, okay, so there’s a lot of episodes, there’s one where – -- the official version, of minecraft pocket edition on my kindle fire but I would wa- from- basically, from the years of 2009 and 2010 I would watch the angry video game nerd. And then one time I got in trouble cause my parents walked in and then they had uh they had me sit down and watch an episode of the angry video game nerd with them. Which was probably one of the worst experiences of my entire life. And I regret uhh, every day. And I I remember it so vividly uh it’s like a mental scar. And I was I was only around 9 years old at the time. I was um, I was in the third grade, and I like- that’s like a like a repressed memory, that was like a really bad time. But yea I really like the angry video game nerd, I thought I’d revisit him, saw the collab with the uhh what’s his face? With the doug walker, and I watched a quinton reviews video on doug walker. And I was like: “oh man doug walker… Ah he’s not a great guy” and so I, you know. But I-I hadn’t watched doug walker for a while up until that point. Umm – -- conomy, uh, so that what happened with the social Darwinism in the 1800’s was you had the big uh corporations like the standard oil company, which would uh see themselves as like the the Pinnacle of uh that specific which they which they occupied. Uh so they would see themselves as the superior, the superior force in the market and they would they’d see that as their reason for swallowing up smaller businesses. So like, for example, what john d rockefeller would do, john d rockefeller would offer to buy a an like an independent oil refinery for a a, you know, not a great amount of money. Or or a good amount of money, depending on who it was, but that person might not wanna cave, so people are like: “oh well” and he’s like “well, okay” and he just lowers the price of oil to where everyone’s taking it at a loss, but the thing about the standard oil company, was because it owned about 90% of the oil refining industry, umm he was able to take that loss, for the amount of time that he was doing it, just long enough for the uh the business he was trying to take for let’s say a couple million to like, Fail completely and flop. Um and so then he’d buy that business for maybe a few thousand dollars. Uuh so that’s that’s how john d Rockefeller did that. But uh, so I was talking about social Darwinism I was talking about the uh the the Rant era of youtube. So I was talking about like people come out on top. leafy was one of those like, one of those businesses, you know, that got bought out by the standard oil company, you know, that would be h3h3 in this specific situation. Which is very strange considering uh h3’s political philosophy, and is supporting someone like Andrew yang. Now let’s talk about Andrew Yang – -- ticipating, I’d lo- I’d I buy dlc for games during this steam summer sale and uhh, having a thousand dollars, would make it much easier to buy. More things on – -- want this car, I want this car so bad but that bike is so much cheaper, which one are you gonna take? Are you gonna take the bike or the car? You’re gonna take the uh, you’re gonna take the bike. So that’s what I’m saying, like you- during the steam sales you always buy worst products, not because um. Simply because they’re cheaper, they’re the cheaper option. You you’d you could buy the Lamborghini but the Lamborghini is not on sale because guess who put that on the store. it was like, the the guys who do like 2k, who doesn’t do anything during the steam sales. You got- so you buy like like a game like bye bye wacky planet, which is a game in my steam library, that I – -- im city 4 deluxe. I have sim city 4 deluxe in my steam library, I’ve opened it one time ever in my entire life, back in uh back in the days of uhh, I think 20..13? And it crashed for half an hour. And that is my- that is how much playtime I have in that game. Um. And I refuse to install it or play it ever again, cause like city sim games are trash. They’re terrible, no one wants to play them. And if you do, there’s like something wrong with you. You gotta have like a like a like a some like kinda masochist kinda thing going. Cause like that’s seriously like the same thing as inflicting like bodily harm on yourself. As like a joke. You play that game to prank yourself. Yeah. Anyway, date me.
2020.08.22 05:39 DarthLordDonkeyAppreciation post for the under appreciated
I’ve seen countless posts and tweets giving praise to guys like KK, Suzuki, Price, etc. and rightfully so. This thread is exclusively for my underdogs, my guys that had to fight to get to this point and aren’t appreciated enough. Brett Kulak. Boy oh boy did he impress me this playoff run. Last year Kulak showed great promise alongside Petry, but he was phenomenal this series and should be a lock to return next season. Rinat Valiev and Matt Taormina for Kulak may be up there for the best Bergevin heists. Alex Belzile. Healthy scratch in the ECHL. Fighting to become an AHL regular. Become AHL all-star. Earn NHL contract. Suffer injuries when you are so close to earning a call up. Have entire AHL shut down due to worldwide pandemic. Get hurt in exhibition game. Finally make your NHL debut. I don’t think enough was made about just how cool this man’s story was. Jake Evans. A guy that has always been looked to for offence, suddenly thrust into a 4th line role. He took it in stride and showed tremendous potential to lock down that role next year. Also took a cross check to the mouth like an absolute champ. Xavier Ouellet. For some reason, I’ve always liked Ouellet since he signed with the team. Does he make mistakes? Sure, but he always gives 100% and has been nothing but a professional. He is a great captain in Laval, and he got to play playoff hockey for his childhood team. Pretty damn special. Michael McNiven. Though he didn’t actually dress for any games, the fact that McNiven got to experience the bubble and practice with the team is so important for him. He has had a tough last few seasons being passed around the ECHL, so practicing with Price every day has to be a victory for him. I was lucky enough to go to High School with him and Nick Suzuki and really want to see them succeed professionally. I hope McNiven can find a stable home in the future, but being in this environment is nothing but a good thing. Charles Hudon. I equate Hudon to that High School girl you dated then slowly drifted apart from. You were never fully serious, and you knew deep down she wasn’t the girl you were destined to be with, but you had a lot of fun together and you want nothing but the best for them in the future. If this is the end of Hudon in Montreal, then I just want to thank him for everything he’s given to the team. He was a beast in the AHL, and a big chunk of the confidence that Kotkaniemi was playing with has to be credited to his time alongside Hudon in Laval. Charlie Lindgren. That moustache and hair combo is top notch. Dale Weise. What can I say that hasn’t already been said. You gave everything you had every time you put on Habs jersey. You helped reignite the hatred towards the Bruins by mocking Lucic. You were nearly in tears as you left for Chicago. I am saying this with 100% authenticity, I truly don’t know if there is a single player in recent memory that has loved being a Hab more than Dale Weise. The man hates the Bruins, loved PK, came back and embraced the youth movement that is happening in Montreal. If that isn’t someone we should all get behind than I don’t know who is. I will always love you Dutch Gretzky. Let’s make this a positive thread. No hate towards any players. At the end of the day, we watch hockey as stress relief and a way to escape reality for 3 hours during games. So as much as it sucks that the season is over, why not be thankful for the positive things this team gave us this year and in years past. The world is already shitty enough, and I promise that complaining about NHL players on a reddit board won’t make you feel any better.
2020.08.21 23:16 metal_insidemy first regression + my research
Hi :) Before we start, I want you to know something about my current self: - Female, born in the ‘90s in the Czech Republic, a teacher in training - I decided to do regression because of (now mild) depression preventing me from living 100% - up to date, I went through 2 youtube hypnosis sessions, both somewhat successful (the video I have used can be found here) -English is not my first language, please excuse the crude style My first regression summary, written immediately after the session: I was a man called Willem (or William) and the first thing I saw was a pine tree forest near a fortress - I was on a similar place in Italy once and this looked familiar, yet I don't know where or when it actually was. I was wearing a type of clothes with chest armour and high leather boots, I had a musket as a gun and I must have been a guard on this fortress overlooking the sea. There were many people running around dressed the same. When asked about the happiest memory I found myself in a dim room with a fireplace, table and a simple bed. On a bed there was my wife - I think I saw a glimpse of curly red hair but I couldn't see her face properly. I was holding a newborn baby and felt proud and happy. It cried loudly but I felt it is a fine and healthy boy. I was overwhelmed with emotions and couldn't go anywhere else past this memory - only felt a strong urge to stay with them longer. After this my vision became hazy and I only saw me standing next to my son and then on an old stone bridge where I was with my wife. She told me it is 1745 and we are in Italy, but I was brought back to my current self by tears shortly after so I think the date and place might be wrong as I associated it with a place I know. After it, I felt I can't go any further and interrupted the session Fact-checking and additional research: Name and origin: Willem is of germanic origin, the most used by Dutch in this exact form. Italian language use "Guglielmo" which is definitely not what I heard while hypnotized. I know for sure it was pronounced “Willem” or more specifically “Willeem” /wɪlˈiːmˈ/, which is close to the Czech equivalent of pronunciation. This leads me to think I was not Italian by origin and came there either at a young age or as a soldier and stayed - at around 1745, some of the Italian cities were under the rule of the Austrian empire. At the same time, the succession wars were fought in Italy and Austrian armies were relocated there. Another possibility is I was born there to foreign parents (perhaps from the Netherlands or Bohemia). As of appearance, I think the closest is the following picture - the man of the left appears to wear clothes similar to Willem’s https://preview.redd.it/cbll34927fi51.jpg?width=790&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=12b0be6474bc284b1b2a7996e423a978b922bcf7 Place of service: The familiar place I described was the “Vecchio Incasato” in Castello, Grottamare, Italy (coordinates: 42.9955714N, 13.8651231E). I am not sure this is the place, however - nothing felt quite familiar about it when I visited it. The place where my past self served as a musketeer might have been a different castle or fortress placed atop a hill overlooking the sea. It does not necessarily be in Italy even though my mind told me so during hypnosis - in my opinion, it tried to show me with the help of my current life memory. List of other possible places matching description (fortress/castle on the Adriatic coast I found familiar): Castello Svevo, Porto Recanati (43.4353217N, 13.6621411E) Lunetta di Santo Stefano, Ancona (43.6129894N, 13.5180039E) - there is something oddly familiar about this one, I can’t quite put my finger on it which leads me to think I might have seen/visited the place in the past life Fortezza di Rocca Priora, Falconara Marittima (43.6412047N, 13.3665217E) - I remember wooden bridges similar to those present here Rocca Roveresca di Senigallia, Senigallia (43.7153747N, 13.2205436E) - has bridges and overlooks the sea, matches the image perfectly Fortress of Mantua (Castello di sain Georgeo, Mantua) (45.1608553N, 10.7999483E) - my hot take on why the regression mention 1745 - it only overlooks a large lake, but looks very much like the place I saw and during Succession war, this place was one of those where often battles occurred. Castillo in Bassignana, Piedmont - the surroundings and the town looks almost exactly as what I saw during regression Home: It was a round hut, very dark and dim inside. The only furniture was a table, a fireplace and a bed. Except that, it was empty. I found a picture similar to what I saw as my previous shelter: https://preview.redd.it/jhnz8qeh8fi51.png?width=474&format=png&auto=webp&s=7d75fe50d0f86d85726689bc98c2832f3e47a36f https://preview.redd.it/xxp0k7zf8fi51.png?width=800&format=png&auto=webp&s=b754c1cc2f20d27e1d7945f075ff062cbbf5e506 I know it looks quite modern - but it was similar in the organisation of the room. The table was in the centre of the room, on one side there was a fireplace and on the opposite side, there was a bed. No more details of my home came to me so I am not sure about anything else. Death: I was not let to see the death of this person. I suspect it either was in battle or due to illness. There was a clue of his family passing before their time - first, I saw the son standing on a top of a hill, a gentle breeze in tall grass, the sun setting behind his back as he examined the horizon embraced by the sea. I could not interact, I just knew I was leaving and there was nothing I could do about it. He watched me, sun and wind in blonde hair, and I could feel he was very sad but appeared collected. Then I saw Willem’s wife standing on a bridge, scenery being the very same except for the pastures. Instead, the sun illuminated her copper-red hair and gave her a light golden halo. She looked at me and told me about 1745. This leads me to think they either died in 1745, or Willem was forced to leave them/died. If the death/departure was caused by disease, chances are he and his family succumbed to the Great Plague of 1738, which spread all across the Austrian Empire and most of Europe - even though it is dated 1738-40, the disease might have been spread among people even after that date. A list of epidemics on Wikipedia mentions Italian plague happened in 1743, killing among 50 000 people. In 1745, the only battle I could find that was taking place in Italy was the Battle of Bassignano. It happened on the 27th of September, 1745 (which would explain the gold light and summer-like evening of the last memory). Parallels and hints of this past life: In this part, I will list hints I didn't realize were of my last life (but might as well be a coincidence)
When I was 19, I had an urge/knew I should have a son and name him Willem. It was unbelievably strong, never before or after have I craved to have a child as much as I did then
When I first came to Italy, it felt like home. I simply love it there
I am attracted to girls with curly red hair
I was born on the 28th of May, which is a name day of Willem in the Czech Republic
I was deep in depression with serious suicidal thoughts aged 22/23, possibly because Willem or his family died at around that age (note: I am ok now, I've lived past the rough period and everything evened out eventually)
What do you all think? Does any of you have any similar experience and/or parallels with your past lives? Should I post my second regression summary and research?
