Exactly. Don't trust a stranger on the internet to help you avoid death.

Luckily, when I saw this post I had swallowed my coffee. I nearly had to clean the couch!

In the corridors of Voyager, a shadow stands, A soul entwined by fate's own hands. From a flash of light, two lives were sewn, Into one, I stand alone.

Oh, they wanna transport my heart in two, Split me apart, what can I do? Caught in a Starfleet riddle, Playing sorrow like a fiddle.

Each step echoes with voices twined, Tuvok’s wisdom with Neelix’s kind. A single life from a broken beam, Living a nightmare, dressed as a dream.

I am but a whisper of both their wills, A spectral dance of unforeseen ills. In their eyes, I see the pain, A heart divided, must I wane?

The captain stands with a heavy choice, In her hands, the end of my voice. For the good of two, must one fade away? In the echoes of stars, hear my plea to stay.

As I dissolve in the transporter’s glow, Remember the life that they forgo. A fleeting whisper in the cosmic sea, Tuvix lives on, let my spirit be free.

The guy had a friend who admitted to 8 murders and he himself murdered his wife who was the translator for a Russian mail order bride catalogue... Woah. Its hard to believe a person like that could contribute to open source.

Diagnosed as ADHD but definitely have more going on.

When I was a kid I would look down when walking. When I tried to do eye contact it was very difficult and I would feel overwhelmed and my eyes would even start watering up and I would get some other physiological symptoms like coughing or running nose.

As an adult I have overcome this and I now am the opposite. I stare too much and I don't look away. I bore right into peoples minds and even though I know it can be disconcerting for others, I do it anyway and I don't really care. I'm not sure why I do this, but it might be part defense mechanism and part desire for connection and understanding.

Most others soon realize that I don't obey social cues and they feel uncomfortable and distance themselves. But that works for me since I am introverted and somewhat antisocial. People say I am "intense".

I think it makes evolutionary sense why a female in their peak of childbearing age would be attractive. But just because there is attraction doesn't mean that it should be acted upon.

Personally, I can appreciate the beauty of a young adult, but they are not sexually attractive to me because I seek intimacy, and I know that a young adult's mind is not mature enough to connect with me on that level.

Each of us should strive to surpass our base animalistic desires and replace them with carefully thought out ethical standards that make us proud of ourselves.

I doubt that it would benefit a young persons development to date someone much older than them. Although, I do accept that we learn mostly from mistakes.

Saying you can solve the existence of bugs in any code repository reeks of bullshit. Anyone who believes this is possible is just ignorant.

Very often a couple will start off with the idea that they don't want children and then have that belief challenged down the line when faced with things like a surprise pregnancy, a failed vasectomy, a realization of ones own desires etc.

Governments make laws based around scale. So needs of the many vs needs of the few, and the risk of people subverting the process and causing unimaginable pain by giving birth to children with serious defects IMO outweighs the benefit of those who would honor the process.

Besides the taboo nature of an incestuous relationship, it can have real impact on a governments role in social programs and acting on the best interests of its citizens.

People cannot be trusted when it comes to babies.

I used to use JQuery (and I still do occasionally when doing scripts for WordPress where its included natively), but modern vanilla JS has solved 90+ % of the reason why we needed JQuery back then.

The Rokeby Venus is a painting by Diego Velázquez which was completed between 1647 and 1651. It depicts the Roman goddess Venus in a sensual pose, lying on a bed and looking into a mirror held by her son Cupid. The painting is the only surviving female nude by Velázquez. Since 1906 it has been in the National Gallery in London.

Rejection sensitive dysphoria (www.additudemag.com)
submitted 9 months ago by [email protected] to c/[email protected]

Some people use the pain of RSD to find adaptations and overachieve. They constantly work to be the best at what they do and strive for idealized perfection. Sometimes they are driven to be above reproach. They lead admirable lives, but at what cost?
