What can we do as ordinary citizens to oppose the alt-right and the ctrl-left?

no no, in relation to "alt-right"

There is no relation to alt-Right, it was just a joke about keyboard buttons.

Alt and Ctrl are both buttons on your keyboard, the joke was that if there was an Alt-Right then there's a Ctrl-Left. It just so happened that Ctrl-Left is an actual keyboard shortcut.

also it's supposed to be a parody on there being such thing as Alt-Left.

Alt-right is also a keyboard shortcut in most web browswers.  Alt-left goes back a page in your history, and alt-right goes forward a page.

Hello, i was sorta lost in thought about a topic that has plagued me for many years. It's a topic that is rather close to me, even if i wish it wasn't such an issue.

People Pleasing

I am a people pleaser, i have in the past put a lot of stock and self worth in how much i could service those around me, and in a way i lose alot of my own agency to them doing so. When i am in the company of friends, family, school, or aquaintances, i find myself struggling keeping myself grounded, and also making sure that people around me are satisfied.

you maybe thinking "Well that sounds super nice of you! It's very considerate of you. why would you want to fix THAT problem then?"

well let me tell you that it is a serious issue that has caused me more harm than good in my life. There is a stark difference between being a nice person who wants to help and do good unto others, and a person who feels like it's life or death and that their lives more or less depend on serving others. It can be hellish to be around people for that reason alone.

it's part of Codependency, or unhealthy relationships where one person feels that they have to always do good unto the other person in unhealthy levels. In my experience, it was dealing with a mentally unstable mother. She is gone, but the overall effects remain unfortunately

now, before you give an answer of "stop caring, stop giving a shit" or anything of that ilk. i do like it when i am helpful, and i love the idea of being happy and wanting to give unto others of my own agency. But it's hard to seperate that want from the extreme need.

be careful. a kid might run up and push you over and then run away laughing

>hugs <3

Introspection is often a good thing. Making this thread was a good idea, I think. Some thoughtful discussion.

That sounds like a nice day. I slept until 3 then went out for food and that's all I've done the entire day.


File: 1503024859756.png (1.27 MB, 1366x768, 683:384, Albedo_007.png) ImgOps Google

I too am having to lean on my family for a lot of support currently. There is no shame in it.

I know that it is very hard dear and I know that sometimes what we want is the worst thing for us.

But we keep trying each day because we are worth it, because tomorrow is a new day to overcome yesterday and to make a path you want to walk.

All will be well my brother.

if a kid pushes me over, then he has better kung fu than i do. his laughs would be well deserved


i introspect a lot, but i am glad i made the thread then. i think it is good for me, and others are enjoying it too <3

>sleep until 3

like in the afternoon? that's wild! you are a wild person!

i really do think you are right, but there is still a big part of me that wishes i could just let my dad live his life without having to be on his tab so to speak. i see many people that i went to school with with careers, married, some have kids already, and then seeing people that have done far greater things than i have in their lives than i have. it's hard not to feel down on myself sometimes…

it's not that i don't think my decisions are bad things for me, but i just see too much risk in them. Like if it fails, then i would end up worst off than i already am, sort of like that

All it ended up amounting to was drama. That's probably what it stemmed from from too.

I just can't help like maybe people take it all way too seriously.

definitely, people take it too seriously. A big part of Ponyville was just… escaping from the drama.

i'd say, we've done a good job of that at least, for the most part c:

And that's "not in use for years" how exactly?

Bringing something back still means "in use", and it is still highly associated with the whole franchise and is still the basic core concept.

It is in no concievable way "never used anymore".


Well that was true before last year. It was retired from 2000 to 2016.

Actually, most trainers don't mindlessly collect them in pokemon media. That was a marketing thing

Update from the first day!

I made it through the first day of the Shadowrun Tournament!

And also: today is the Great Ghost Dance! In Shadowrun, it's the mass awakening! Magic is back in the world again! And the tournament is called the Great Ghost Dance!

I almost bought myself a Perfect Grade Unicorn, but instead I found a full boost Master Grade Exia, so I got that for me.

Tomorrow I'll be wearing the first costume of the weekend, and going into the second day of the tournament.

I am! It's been a great (if tiring) time so far.

To give you an idea of how ridiculous the power-scaling in Dragon Ball Super has become, let's take a look at Freiza. During the "Golden Freiza Saga", the recently resurrected Freiza is able to reach a level of power capable of fighting a Super Saiyan Blue after training for just four months.

A Super Saiyan Blue is roughly 300 million times stronger than Freiza was at the time of his death. Assuming Freiza trained non-stop without eating or sleeping for that entire four months, he would have had to get 100,000 times stronger every hour. To put that in perspective, this means that Freiza could have fought Vegito (the absolute strongest character in  the original run of DBZ) after training for just 3 minutes.

Hello my wonderful friends! i hope you are well! i had an idea for a thread!

many of us have come across things in our lives or in our studies that seem so strange or counter intuitive, yet are completely true. This is a thread for those oddities and surreal realities that we have and want to share with the world

I'll start

When you habitually exercise, it eventually starts to feel REALLY good!

i know many of you when you hear the word "exercise", many think of sweating, their muscles hurting, and their lungs on fire and exploding. it's not hard to think of all the terrible feelings that come with working out, and for the first couple weeks of working out, it's sorta true.

but once you break that threshold, and get to the point where it no longer feels painful to do your workout, that's when it gets fun!

You will want to do it more, to move your muscles, and to push yourself more and more! your brain will be flooded with endorphins and you will reach a greater state of mind! working out is the best anti-depressant after all!

pretty soon you will feel that the small amount of work you did is not enough, and you will want to increase your workout load, and then suddenly, you are out there 5-6 days a week for at least an hour doing something, and you will be super happy!

gosh… i love podcasts. have you any more recommendations?



Hmm… Well, there's a bunch, actually! "Skeptoid" is very good for bite-sized yet indepth investigations of specific topics, and then there's everything the Merseyside Skeptics Society (the guys behind the campaign to get rid of homeopathy from the NHS in the UK) do. "Sceptics with a K" is their general show (of biggest interest lately is one of the host's continuing investigations into research about the placebo effect), and "Inkredulous" is their comedy panel one. They also do "Be Reasonable", where they have polite interviews with people from all sorts of fringes. That's 5 podcasts already together with TRC, so I think I'll leave the recommendation list at that, heh.

Sifu! I just tried the five rites you mentioned! I could hardly do each one more than a few times, and it made me realise how inflexible i am. I am pleased, though, because this means any step forward is progress!
Are the rites supposed to be a daily thing? Or should they be done multiple times a day?

Bucket lists are fun. Let's make a Ponyville bucket list!

But with a twist.
You can only add things to the list that you have already tried yourself and you think everypony else should try too!

And share stories of when you did it and why we should all try it.

well stay safe nonetheless! i mean, i assume your country is safer overall, but there will always be some places that are rougher than others

just be like me and carry a stick and 12 knives around :)

I had a friend like that once. He collected knives and the like, and had a good number of 'em. Even had a 13-inch fixed blade that he found on a beach somewhere. It was cool - except, of course, that it was also completely illegal, and if he had ever used it in self-defense, he would have been arrested along with the assaulter.

Where I come from, it's never a good idea to have weapons. That just encourages people to do more harm than they otherwise would. A sizable portion of our homeless population here came from mental health institutions which shut down and let everyone into the streets, so there's no guarantee that people will act rationally when threatened. Of course it's always good to be careful, but a quick "sorry" can usually defuse any hostile situation, whereas weapons just invite a challenge… in my experience, at least.


+1 on the concerts and the drunk thing. Again, not because getting blackout drunk is necessarily not a great thing to do, but you do get to see who sticks around and all that. Of course, it's not for everybody, worth keeping in mind.

But the few time sI've gone to music festivals with friends have definitely been highlights in my life.

i calls it as i sees it

if you truly are hoping to help people with their weight and health issues, then i suggest finding a program to volunteer or work for. maybe go to school for nutrition or medicine, and leave it to them.

because most of the people on sites like this are here to relax and get away from their stresses, and they don't need to be shamed or hurt in any way.

so unless they ask you specifically for advice, i would say your unsolicited advice is probably always gonna be hurting more than helping.

unless, being helpful is not your intention, in which case that is very shameful


File: 1502949277471.png (174.16 KB, 340x420, 17:21, lemme think.png) ImgOps Google

I would say there is some tolerance on weight where it becomes a real health risk.

You can go up until a good chunk in obese to not be in dire peril.

Eating habits do matter. Body size? not so much as people would claim.

Since I had this discussion a while ago:

Can your employer at some point decide to reduce your salary?

Legally, where you live?
Do you think an employer should be allowed to do that?
Would you still work there if your employer cut a chunk of your income? If he tells you he can't afford giving you your current wage anymore?

Any stories you know about this?

Depending on the circumstances.

That would depends on how badly I need the money, to be honest.
