2023.05.29 03:36 BigOnes73 Should spaghetti be served from two dishes?
My husband thinks it’s crazy that I dump the spaghetti sauce into the actual spaghetti to serve it from a single dish. He said I should serve the plain spaghetti and the sauce in two different serving dishes and let people get the amount that they want of each. My problem with this is that the plain spaghetti sticks and clumps alone, and also people take all the meat sauce and leave the noodles. Every time I dump the sauce into the spaghetti, everyone actually eats a proportional amount and everyone gets full. When I serve the food his way the last in line only getting noodles and a sprinkle of sauce.

2023.05.29 03:30 Hoveria69 my life might be practically over at this point
sorry for the long post. Im just writing this to vent and also because i feel like i have to get it out and need to get my voice heard for some reason?
I don't know where to start but here we go, So my country (Turkey) held elections and the same guys won again an it is very concerning. these guys directly resulted the downfall of our economy and the death of tens of thousands in the recent earthquakes among many other things. they control most media and brainwash elderly and manipulate religion so even after having he blood of their relatives on their hand even the earthquake region mostly voted for them. this is quite saddening already but what ties it to me is the economy part, i cannot enjoy life anymore because everything is very expensive. i know the us and other countries have inflation too but it is very bad over here. a single iphone 14 is more than 4 months worth of the avarage salary (not spending a single cent on anything else) and even bread has multiplied by 10 times in my lifetime. there are a lot of things i want to do and enjoy just like the rest of my friends online but it just keeps getting farther and farther, i wnat to play the new games (zelda totk) too, and i used to be able to just some years back, but it is now the same price how much a new phone used to cost years ago. people will say some cheap games are like just 5 bucks and that will be 3 whole weeks of allowance without spending a single cent for me.
but perhaps a bigger problem is my life. the government is getting less and less secular and as (at least wanting to be) a feminine presenting bisexual man (closeted) i was questioning transitioning but i guess that won't happen anymore. i seriously fear my life would be in danger in a couple years. they already said they wanted to ban pre marriage stuff and cleanse the country from the "evil of the west" being LGBTQ i know some of it is happening in usa as well and im sorry for you too.
overall it just feel like im getting robbed of my life. i will be in university in just over a year and i used to dream about living the university life, studying fine arts because it is my passion, being social and free, having a boyfriend potentially and doing things i wanted to like learn to play the drums. but no, i will not be able to afford a drumset or even afford to eat meat frequently, i will never have enough money for a car or a house and will never be allowed to have a bf. i can't even play videogames because i won't be able to afford neither the thing to play it or the games itself. i will probably never study art because there is genuinely zero money in it in turkey and even engineers or architects have the salary equivalent to what a factory worker gets in germany.
there are tons of other problems and layers to it (such as the fact main opposition leader forced himself to be the candidate even tho no one likes him and that may have costed the entire country to us)
and the worst part of it is my own grandparents and relatives are voting for this sht and i have slowly started to hate them. they have the iq of a single celled organism just like most of the population. i hate myself for hating them but i can't help it. they are the ones who voted for the thousands to die and they are the ones who voted for me to suffer. my own grandparents. just for some religious propaganda.
all of these have just been making me depressed and i don't know what to do anymore. there is kind of nothing to do. no escape. i have so much rage in me that i just broke a glass because i was gripping it too hard. i lost all my motivation in life. knowing that all my future is practically dead just what's the point man. when i close my eyes all i see is that 1$ went from 3₺ to 20₺ in my lifetime.there is nothing i can do about it.
in the last year this combined with school and parent pressure and gold high expectations to all my grades (also the fact i can't study art) caused me to grow quite suicidal but always had hope because i thought we would surely win the elections, after the billion scandals, big issues, fails and mishandling of human life from the government but no, people STILL voted for them.
to add insult to the injury right wingers are going on tweeter and celebrating the results and saying they smashed us. like wth are you happy about we are dying as a country ???
im speechless just wanting to not exist anymore you know. i feel like a 40 year old on the inside. the constant stress from my grades and studies was already too high that i have had health problems because of it. this on top of that is something i can't bear.
there is so much.

2023.05.29 03:29 cr-advice-please Feedback on my OLD profile please?
I am a 56yo male. I had no clue what to write for my OLD profile. This is the first thing I came up with. I would really appreciate any feedback on it. Thank you in advance.
Maybe I read too much science fiction growing up, but I really thought we'd have flying cars by now. Although they aren't a reality (yet), we do have some amazing technology at our disposal (the fact that I am writing this on an Android tablet that is also streaming an album by The Who to wireless speakers throughout the house is just one example).
I enjoy board games such as backgammon, Monopoly, and Risk as well as old school arcade games like Pac-Man, Galaga, and Asteroids. I enjoy music (primarily classic rock - some of my favorites are The Who, Pink Floyd, Lou Reed and Warren Zevon; old school punk - The Ruts, Meat Puppets, and Black Flag for example; and some country - i.e. Willie Nelson and Townes Van Zandt). I also enjoy science fiction books, movies, and TV shows (Star Wars, Star Trek, Doctor Who, and the works of Philip K. Dick are a few of my favorites). Big fan of off-beat comedies and thought-provoking documentaries as well.
I enjoy cooking a fairly eclectic variety of dishes. I am fascinated by astronomy and love spending nights stargazing through my telescope.
I'm looking to meet someone who I can laugh with, share and compare notes with, and enjoy life with. I am vaxxed and fully boosted. Thanks for taking the time to read this.

2023.05.29 03:28 procrastinatador Intersectionality is incredibly important in times like these.
This mostly refers to the US and other countries undergoing similar changes.
Intersectionality: the interconnected nature of social categorizations such as race, class, and gender as they apply to a given individual or group, regarded as creating overlapping and interdependent systems of discrimination or disadvantage.
Having a medical condition like celiac can be a part of intersectionality because it can put you at a disadvantage. With the majority of sufferers being women, and many others belonging to other groups, I would say that most of us have some form of intersectionality.
Many people are aware that intentions behind legislation are not usually black and white. When legislation creates division, be it economic status, social status, religion, political affiliation, disability, sexuality, identity, or something else, more than anything else, there is a problem because if you aren't standing up for others needs and rights, who will be there to stand up for yours?
I think this poem sums up why this is so important:
Martin Niemöller - First They Came
First they came for the Communists And I did not speak out Because I was not a Communist Then they came for the Socialists And I did not speak out Because I was not a Socialist Then they came for the trade unionists And I did not speak out Because I was not a trade unionist Then they came for the Jews And I did not speak out Because I was not a Jew Then they came for me And there was no one left To speak out for me
What happens if anything certified to be gluten free skyrockets in price to the point that it is not affordable to feed ourselves and we are starving? Would you rather be standing in a small group of hungry people with celiac, or a larger group made up of all different types of people to stand against that?
We already, in the US, don't require for the labels on food to say "may contain gluten" when I know that for some of you that is the difference between a pricey hospital stay and being able to sit on the couch and watch TV. There is a bill coming up to get anything with gluten in it to be clearly labeled, which is awesome, so spread the word between groups you're in, and be willing to spread issues back to the celiac community where you can. For best results, we, as people belonging to disadvantaged group(s) need to support each other.
You see what's happening with legislation all over the US right now if you live here, and honestly, I've spoken to a lot of people who don't live here who are very aware and scared for us, particularly for the LGBTQ+ community.
When you are a part of multiple disadvantaged groups, bring issues up between them. We stand stronger as a larger group educated on many issues as opposed to many smaller ones educated on our own issues. You might remember what insulin used to cost. I had to watch my friend waste away mentally because he couldn't afford to move out of his abusive parents house and buy himself insulin, and now that it's more affordable, he is still stuck because he is so mentally unwell he can't care for himself.
Can you imagine what would happen if things certified gluten free actually were suddenly so expensive you couldn't eat? People who created legislation allowing for it would be telling you "oh, well at least you do have something to eat still," and not enough people would understand why we were so upset and hungry because it still exists, even if it is not affordable at all, if we didn't talk about it.
When someone has intersectionality and belongs to multiple groups, they are educated on issues from both groups and have the power to speak to those issues between those groups so that people understand them. Allying yourself with others from disadvantaged positions and standing up for them makes you stronger and protects you in the long run, but only if enough people do it.

2023.05.29 03:27 Puzzleheaded_Art7571 Canadian Woman Looking for Advice About Meeting Algerian Man Coming to Visit
I (31 year old white female) am from Canada and have been talking to a 27 year old Algerian male online for 3 years. We mostly chat by message but have done video calls as well. We have developed an emotional bond and have romantic interest in one another, however we need to meet in person to see if we should move forward with the relationship.
He has been able to obtain a Canadian visitor visa and will be arriving in a few months. He has a sister with husband and 2 children who already live in Montreal. He plans to spend the first few days visiting them and then he and myself will meet and spend time together to determine if we are a good match. I live in a city outside of Montreal.
I have always felt his intentions for wanting to meet me and have a relationship with me were pure and not a means to an end for a better life or to obtain citizenship. Probably deep down he is excited about the prospect of having a better life if we were to marry and he stays in Canada, but I am ok with that and feel he also genuinely cares for me. We discussed this at length in the beginning because I was a little paranoid about his intentions, but he has earned my trust by being very honest and willing to answer all of my questions. He has never pressured me about anything or asked for money etc.
He is paying his way here, however I have offered to help out with hotel cost as I make decent money compared to him and it will not be burdensome for me. He would like to come spend some time in my city while we get to know each other , however he is Muslim and has made it clear we cannot be physically intimate outside of marriage and that staying at my apartment would not be permitted, therefore I feel the least I can do is help with his accommodations to some degree.
He has been clear that the next step for him would be marriage. I feel that I need to get to know him in person before I’ll know if I’m interested in marriage and have also been clear about that.
As well, he has explained that he expects his wife to dress modestly/respectfully (ie. no bikini or short shorts) but would not require her to cover her hair if she doesn’t want to. I am Catholic and he is ok with me attending church if we were to marry. He would expect any children to be raised Muslim. He would not be ok with his wife drinking or smoking , or eating non halal meats.
His family does not know about me as relationships outside of marriage are not permitted in his culture. He plans to tell them about me if we become engaged. He lives with his parents so video calls can only happen when they are not home. My family and friends also do not know as I don’t feel they would understand until we’ve met in person and am naturally a private person until a serious relationship is for sure.
He is decent texting, speaking and understanding English and communicating has never been an issue. His English has greatly improved over the three years we’ve been in contact. He is fluent in French and Arabic.
I have a few questions that I am hoping Algerian nationals can answer for me, and specifically Algerian women, in preparation for meeting this man.
1) What are your thoughts on this situation? Do you have any concerns you think I need to be aware of regarding the situation in its entirety ?
2) What is life like for a woman married to an Algerian man? Of course he tells me what a marriage with him would be like from his perspective and expectations - but I am wondering if any Algerian women could provide insight from their perspective and experiences ?
3) If we were to marry - what might I need to be aware of/know about raising Algerian Muslim children?
4) If married, what would travel to Algeria be like for me as a white western woman?
5) His sister has not offered him to stay with her while visiting Montreal, she lives in a small 2 bedroom apartment and says there is not enough room. He will stay in a hotel, I have offered to help pay some. Is this weird? Asking because my therapist felt it was odd that his family wouldn’t be more accommodating given that he does not have a ton of extra money and is travelling all the way from Algeria. My therapist also felt was odd his sister isn’t sponsoring him to come over more permanently as this is his wish - he says siblings cannot be sponsored, only parents spouses and children.
Any insight is appreciated! Thanks

2023.05.29 03:19 looseends13 Mixed Meats, different timings
Question please... Yesterday I smoked two 8" pork belly slabs on the lower grate and a brisket on the top. At 5.5 hours, I removed the lid to take the pork out. I couldn't get it out fast enough and all the charcoal lit up and got super hot and flaming. My wife won't eat the belly so I really loaded it up with Kosher salt and lots of freshly cracked black pepper, and she doesn't do a hint of spicy. The brisket goes on top with a light sprinkle of Lawry's. Is there a way of managing the heat in this situation? Thanks

2023.05.29 03:18 JoshAsdvgi THE ARROW CHAIN
| || | submitted by JoshAsdvgi to Native_Stories [link] [comments]
THE ARROW CHAIN
(TLINGIT: Swanton, Bulletin of the Bureau of American Ethnology, xxxix, 209, No. 56)
Two very high-caste boys were chums.
The father of one was town chief and had his house in the middle of the village, but the house of the other boy's father stood at one end.
These boys would go alternately to each other's houses and make great quantities of arrows which they would play with until all were broken up.
One time both of the boys made a great quantity of arrows to see which could have the more.
Just back of their village was a hill on the top of which was a smooth grassy place claimed by the boys as their playground, and on a certain fine, moonlight night they started thither.
As they were going along the lesser chief's son, who was ahead, said, "Look here, friend. Look at that moon.
Don't you think that the shape of that moon is the same as that of my mother's labret and that the size is the same, too?"
The other answered, "Don't: You must not talk that way of the moon."
Then suddenly it became very dark about them and presently the head chief's son saw a ring about them just like a rainbow.
When it disappeared his companion was gone.
He called and called to him but did not get any answer and did not see him.
He thought, "He must have run up the hill to get away from that rainbow."
He looked up and saw the moon in the sky.
Then he climbed the hill, and looked about, but his friend was not there.
Now he thought, "Well! the moon must have gone up with him.
That circular rainbow must have been the moon."
The boy thus left alone sat down and cried, after which he began to try the bows.
He put strings on them one after the other and tried them, but every one broke.
He broke all of his own bows and all of his strings his chum's except one which was made of very hard wood.
He thought, "Now I am going to shoot that star next to the moon."
In that spot was a large and very bright one.
He shot an arrow at this star and sat down to watch, when, sure enough, the star darkened.
Now he began shooting at that star from the big piles of arrows he and his chum had made, and he was encouraged by seeing that the arrows did not come back.
After he had shot for some time he saw something hanging down very near him and, when he shot up another arrow, it stuck to this.
The next did likewise, and at last the chain of arrows reached him.
He put a last one on to complete it.
Now the youth felt badly for the loss of his friend and, lying down under the arrow chain, he went to sleep.
After a while he awoke, found himself sleeping on that hill, remembered the arrows he had shot away, and looked up.
Instead of the arrows there was a long ladder reaching right down to him.
He arose and looked so as to make sure.
Then he determined to ascend.
First, however, he took various kinds of bushes and stuck them into the knot of hair he wore on his head.
He climbed up his ladder all day and camped at nightfall upon it, resuming his journey the following morning.
When he awoke early on the second morning his head felt very heavy.
Then he seized the salmon berry bush that was in his hair, pulled it out, and found it was loaded with berries.
After he had eaten the berries off, he stuck the branch back into his hair and felt very much strengthened.
About noon of the same day he again felt hungry, and again his head was heavy, so he pulled out a bush from the other side of his head and it was loaded with blue huckleberries.
It was already summer there in the sky.
That was why he was getting berries.
When he resumed his journey next morning his head did not feel heavy until noon.
At that time he pulled out the bush at the back of his head and found it loaded with red huckleberries.
By the time he had reached the top the boy was very tired.
He looked round and saw a large lake.
Then he gathered some soft brush and some moss and lay down to sleep.
But, while he slept, some person came to him and shook him saying, "Get up.
I am after you."
He awoke and looked around but saw no one.
Then he rolled over and pretended to go to sleep again but looked out through his eyelashes.
By and by he saw a very small but handsome girl coming along.
Her skin clothes were very clean and neat, and her leggings were ornamented with porcupine quills.
Just as she reached out to shake him he said, "I have seen you already."
Now the girl stood still and said, "I have come after you.
My grandmother has sent me to bring you to her house.
" So he went with her, and they came to a very small house in which was an old woman.
The old woman said, "What is it you came way up here after, my grandson?" and the boy answered, "On account of my playmate who was taken up hither."
"Oh!" answered the old woman, "He is next door, only a short distance away.
I can hear him crying every day.
He is in the moon's house."
Then the old woman began to give him food.
She would put her hand up to her mouth, and a salmon or whatever she was going to give would make its appearance.
After the salmon she gave him berries and then meat, for she knew that he was hungry from his long journey.
After that she gave him a spruce cone, a rose bush, a piece of devil's club, and a small piece of whetstone to take along.
As the boy was going toward the moon's house with all of these things he heard his playmate screaming with pain.
He had been put up on a high place near the smoke hole, so, when his rescuer came to it, he climbed on top, and, reaching down through the smoke hole, pulled him out.
He said, "My friend, come. I am here to help you."
Putting the spruce cone down where the boy had been, he told it to imitate his cries, and he and his chum ran away.
After a while, however, the cone dropped from the place where it has been put, and the people discovered that their captive had escaped.
Then the moon started in pursuit.
When the head chief's son discovered this, he threw behind them the devil's club he had received from the old woman, and a patch of devil's club arose which the moon had so much trouble in getting through that they gained rapidly on him.
When the moon again approached, the head chief's son threw back the rose bushes, and such a thicket of roses grew there that the moon was again delayed.
When he approached them once more, they threw back the grindstone, and it became a high cliff from which the moon kept rolling back.
It is on account of this cliff that people can say things about the moon nowadays with impunity.
When the boys reached the old woman's house they were very glad to see each other, for before this they had not had time to speak.
The old woman gave them something to eat, and, when they were through, she said to the rescuer, "Go and lie down at the place where you lay when you first came up.
Don't think of anything but the playground you used to have."
They went there and lay down, but after some time the boy who had first been captured thought of the old woman's house and immediately they found themselves there.
Then the old woman said, "Go back and do not think of me any more.
Lie there and think of nothing but the place where you used to play."
They did so, and, when they awoke, they were lying on their playground at the foot of the ladder.
As the boys lay in that place they heard a drum beating in the head chief's house, where a death feast was being held for them, and the head chief's son said, "Let us go," but the other answered, "No, let us wait here until that feast is over."
Afterward the boys went down and watched the people come out with their faces all blackened.
They stood at a corner, but, as this dance is always given in the evening, they were not seen.
Then the head chief's son thought, " I wish my younger brother would come out," and sure enough, after all of the other people had gone, his younger brother came out.
He called to his brother saying, "Come here. It is I," but the child was afraid and ran into the house instead.
Then the child said to his mother, "My brother and his friend are out here."
"Why do you talk like that?" asked his mother.
"Don't you know that your brother died some time ago?"
And she became very angry.
The child, however, persisted, saying, "I know his voice, and I know him."
His mother was now very much disturbed, so the boy said, "I am going to go out and bring in a piece of his shirt."
"Go and do so," said his mother.
"Then I will believe you."
When the boy at last brought in a piece of his brother's shirt his mother was convinced, and they sent word into all of the houses, first of all into that of the second boy's parents, but they kept both with them so that his parents could come there and rejoice over him.
All of the other people in that village also came to see them.

The Arikara Story of the Magic Windpipe
A long time ago there lived a beautiful Indian girl.
Her lodge was on the edge of a forest, and she dwelt alone. And though she never hunted or fished, she always had plenty to eat, and no one knew where it came from.
In her lodge hung a magic bundle, and near it were seven tiny bows and a lot of grass arrows.
One day as she was eating her dinner, Coyote came through the forest, and stopped at her door.
He saw that she had roast Buffalo meat, and he licked his chops.
"You have no man around," said he to the girl; "may I stay and do your errands?"
"Yes," said she, "you may stay."
So Coyote lived with her, and made her fires and brought water from the spring.
By and by all the Buffalo meat was gone, and Coyote wondered how she was going to get more.
Then the girl said:—
"Uncle Coyote, our food is gone.
I want some fresh meat.
My brothers will be here to-day.
Do you go to the north side of the entrance and cover your head with a Buffalo robe, and don't watch what I do."
So Coyote did as he was told, and when his head was covered, he peeped out and saw the girl sweep the lodge clean.
Then she placed hot coals in the centre of the room, and put some sweet-grass on the coals. As the smoke arose, she lifted the magic bundle from the wall, and opening it, took out the windpipe of a Buffalo.
It was round, and small at one end, and big at the other.
She waved the windpipe over the smoke, and turned the small end down, and some dust fell out on the floor.
Then the dust changed into seven handsome braves, her brothers.
The young men took down the tiny bows and arrows from the wall, and they changed into big bows and arrows.
The girl wrapped herself in a Buffalo robe, then went and stood in the door.
She gave a yell to the north, and a yell to the west, and immediately herds of Buffalo came rushing over the plain.
Then she went back into the lodge, and her brothers began to kill the Buffalo.
When they had killed as many as they wanted, the rest of the animals ran away, and the brothers came back into the lodge.
The girl put more sweet-grass on the coals, and when the smoke rose up the brothers stepped behind it, and disappeared.
The girl took the magic windpipe, held it over the coals, gathered up a handful of dust from the floor, and put it into the windpipe.
After that she put the windpipe into the magic bundle and hung it again on the wall.
She next passed the big bows and arrows through the smoke and they became tiny bows and grass arrows, and she hung them up, too.
Now, Coyote was very much astonished to see all this, but he kept quiet.
By and by the girl called him, and showed him the dead Buffalo.
He helped her to skin the animals, and to dry the flesh.
After that she let Coyote roast all the bones he wished.
When Coyote had eaten the roast meat, he began to think of his hungry children at home, and said to himself,
"If I only had that magic windpipe, I could call the Buffalo whenever I wished, and the seven young braves would kill them for me."
Then he asked the girl if the windpipe held more than seven young men. "Oh, yes," said she; "whenever I turn the big end upside down, a war party comes out, headed by my seven brothers, and they fight for me."
When Coyote heard this, he decided to steal the windpipe that night, for he thought,
"When my enemies see all those braves, they will think me powerful, and will run away."
Now the girl knew that Coyote was planning to steal the windpipe, and she let him take it. That night, when she was asleep, he lifted down the magic bundle from the wall, and, opening it, took out the windpipe and ran away fast toward the north.
He travelled far until he was tired, and then lay down by a log to sleep.
The girl knew this, and she told her brothers to bring him back.
They did so, and placed him on the floor of the lodge.
And when he woke in the morning, there he lay, with the magic windpipe in his paw, and the girl looking at him.
"Oh, my niece," said he, "I thought a war-party was coming in the night, so I took this down. Put it back."
So the girl tied the windpipe up in the magic bundle, and hung it on the wall.
The next night Coyote ran away again with the magic windpipe, and when he came to a place where he thought he was safe, he lay down to sleep.
The girl told her brothers to bring him back. They did so, and placed him on the floor of the lodge.
And when he woke in the morning, there he lay, with the magic windpipe in his paw, and the girl looking at him.
"Oh, my niece," said he, "I took this down because the enemy came in the night, and I frightened him away.
Put it back." So the girl tied the windpipe up again, and hung it on the wall.
And the same thing happened the third night.
The fourth time Coyote stole the magic windpipe, the girl let him take it and did not tell her brothers to bring him back.
She let him go on until he came to a village.
He was very hungry, so he said to himself,
"I will call out the people and order them to feed me, and if they do not obey,
I will turn the big end of the windpipe upside down, and the war-party will come out."
So he called out the people, and the braves came running and shouting from the lodges, and the boys and dogs came too.
And when they saw Coyote, the men and boys began to kick him, and throw stones at him, and the dogs bit him.
He turned the windpipe upside down, when, instead of a war-party, out burst a whole swarm of Bumblebees, millions of them, buzzing with rage.
They settled all over Coyote, and stung him so hard that he ran howling into the forest.
And they kept on stinging him until he was well punished for his lying and stealing.
After that, the Bumblebees swarmed up into a hollow tree, and they have lived there ever since.
As for the magic windpipe, the brothers took it back to the girl.
2023.05.29 03:16 bigbibs18 Question for the MoralityMaxxing Vegans
I posted this as a comment on a previous post but I’d like the discussion to be larger:
In Pennsylvania we have an abundance of white tailed deer due to deforestation and loss of natural predators. Hunters aid in their population regulation on a scale infeasible through other means. Families eat the meat. Hunting deer is barbaric and unnecessary? Ok, let's review other options:
- Sterilization. We completely halt the millions of dollars in revenue made from selling hunting licenses (used to support conservation efforts) and ask the state for money to fund the sterilization of ~450,000 adult deer that would've been hunted. Then we wait and hope the population evens out over the next 10 years before the environment is damaged by a surplus of about 5 million adult white tailed deer
- Reintroduction of natural predators. Yes, more wolves in the suburbs would be readily welcomed! I'm sure they can differentiate a deer from your kids. Let's get plenty in the city of Pittsburgh, where we have a high number of Lyme disease cases due to the deer population. Introduction of wolves in the city couldn't go wrong.
- Kill them by other means. Again we revoke the millions of dollars in revenue made by the sales of hunting licenses to kill ~450,000 deer a year in some other manner, then use the carcasses that would've been eaten by families for ...?? Not to mention the US department of agriculture already sends in shooters to kill massive amounts of deer each year and donate the meat to food banks
Any other suggestions? Maybe you're not against hunting here but just eating the meat. You're right, it would be much more morally conscious to, I don't know, burn it in my front yard or something.
Let’s also imagine the influx of car accidents and fatalities associated with an exploding deer population! Or consider the fact that deer communities are much healthier when existing within in a hunting controlled environment due to the decline in resource competition.
Any vegans got any takes?

2023.05.29 03:10 The_lurking_nopon My husband criticised DS lunchbox I make.
For context I live in my husband country, he "only" work and I do 100% of chores and children.
My special need DS (currently looking what's wrong) speech delayed started kindergarten. In my husband country there are no school lunches and parents must make a lunchbox for their child. I followed kindergarten guideline for his lunchbox (easy to eat and food child likes, no sweets) my son is very picky he eats rice, noodles, cheese, yogurt, milk, no meat beside ham, sausages and only vegetables he likes are raw cucumber and carrots. That's what I put inside his lunch, I got no complaint from kindergarten and my son eat all of his lunch.
Yesterday my husband said that my lunchbox for our are poor and bad that I should put food he hates to teach him to be less picky. He showed me pictures of "real" lunchbox that was mainly kyaraben (lunch shaped into anime characters like Pikachu) I already tried to make him eat new food he was aggressive will throw chairs and food and shouts like crazy then he would take food from fridge instead (we have child lock but he knows how to unlock it) I don't want my son to behave like that at kindergarten and I prefer to make lunch that he likes.
When I told him that his comment about lunch I made hurt me and explained why I make that lunch that way he refused to listen he got angry saying I was whitesplaining his culture that he knew better than me. Kindergarten told me that to not change his lunch because that's what DS likes eventually I can put a little portion of food he hates but that's it, they wanted to phone to my husband to explain to him but I told them not to because I know he will just get angry at me for portraying him as a bad guy.
What should I do ? Should I just pretend to agree with my husband and not change anything ?

2023.05.29 03:06 I_am_Fang_Yuan_ Fang yuan in a modern world
So I started imagining a story about cultivation in a modern world
the Mc is a chad but is still young, he is aloof, indifferent, goes to college but he hides a secret, he is the result of an insane scientific experiment by a previous insane cultivator with the goal of achieving eternal life using dark matter on a test subject, mc as a kid, but he fails and dies in the process
the mc survived and lived for two decades alone in hardships and cultivating but he just sees it as something natural, having built an entire organisation
the first chapter takes place after he fights one of the strongest chinese cultivator by accident and both get heavily injured, fearing other cultivators to interfere, he takes a plane to Japan, but he himself is without roots, his organisation makes sure the plane is empty so he isnt disturbed
at the same time, a girl was taking the same plane, her uncle was part of the highest echelon in the plane company, and barely was able to get her on the plane as well, she is the daughter of one of the biggest conglomarates so she has that bitchy attitude tho she has a serious temperament
when she got in the plane, she didnt expect it to be empty, nor that the plane had to take off 30m before scheduled time, she might have thought her uncle would reserve a few high class seats but not the entire plane, she keeps moving feel quite good about her uncle until she passes on the mc smoking drugs with a pipe, the dosage itself enough to kill an elephant but enough to barely relieve the pain caused from true qi wounds, but he had self-healing abilities
she gets shocked out of her mind, the bag of powders, the pipe, the smoke, she gets infuriated and goes to speak to the flight crew and finds only one flight attendant, a woman that she knew and worked for the company but she was a spy for the organisation, but she knew the girl so she explained with a small serious tone that the entire plane was reserved for the mc and that her uncle barely got her to get on the plane, the women is shocked but she fights back, taking drugs on the plane is illegal! let alone smoking them! she bickers and is annoyed but settles knowing he is only in the economy class and the entire business class is for her alone, meanwhile mc is in nirvana but completely in control
they land and the evidence of smoke having ruined the plane is evident, she gets angry and wants to find the attendant but she had already left with the mc, she swears to take revenge,
mc after getting out and his wounds healed, he is completely annoyed since he never wanted trouble with that chinese cultivator since he was on vacation, his friends he fought with told him to finally get some time off to think about his future life
anyway, he goes into all kinds of scenarios and thinks more and more about his philosophy and life, goes to college to see whats its like, meets that girl, has some fun, meets some more interesting characters, beats some local gangs but all this is just an introduction
One day after a few casual days, he comes near a beggar
the beggar's eyes light up, he is haggard with a white beard
he asks the mc for a bit of money
the mc gives him and smiles
"is there no other choice?"
"now that you met me, no I'm afraid"
both walk to the local port, if you'd seen them you would think there were friends
they walk and fly in the sky
they get high and go hundreds and hundreds of kilometers off the coastline
the mc goes and suddenly realises the Entire sky is filled with cultivators, from a sight, you would see all were chinese with some japanese cultivators mixed in and especially that chinese cultivator that injured him
mc smiles "you could have let it go, but I see you're courting death"
the beggar arrives and retreats, Mc sees clearly that the true threat is the beggar
the chinese cultivator comes out strong and unleashes his strongest attacks, mc had already seen through him and fights with no mercy, after a flurry of attacks he sees an opening kicks him in the stomach then gives him a heavy downward kick sending him in the depths of the ocean, mc immediately enters the depths of the ocean to avoid other cultivators interfering and uses one of his signature moves "heavenly darkness" , absorbing the essence of the cultivator's cultivation rendering him a skeleton with bones showing and then absorbing his soul
in not even a few minutes, with little resistance the chinese cultivator died, mc gets out and shows them the corpse
the accompanying elders and cultivators are enraged and attack him all at once, an absolute flurry of attacks, from afar it appeared as hundred of flies were gathering around a single object and attacking it, although the mc could resist at first and killed multiple cultivators, the coordinated attacks repeatedly injured him
but after tens of deaths the chinese cultivators got scared and decided to get insanely close to mc and take more risk and called on the beggar
"come and help us, we promise you we'll share with you the ancient treasure our country stole from your sect"
the beggar interfers and coordinates all their attacks while using spatial laws to disorient mc and get attacks hitting him
the mc is near death, heavily injured
the beggar's eyes flashed, he was a clan leader, one of the elders came to him and said "he will reveal his real cultivation soon it seems, clan leader you have to interfere otherwise im afraid"
at once, Golden chains appeared on mc, it seems they were restrictions placed on him all this time
chain by chain broke and the mc got an insane boost of power, chain by chain, cultivators started getting killed till they all retreated behind the beggar
each chain, the mc became a more cold blooded red eyed demon, black fire was spewing everywhere out of him
"it seemed I failed after all"
one chain made of multiple chain remained on mc, it was encircling his heart
huge black fire was enshrouding his body and his red eyes made him look terrifying, a true devil
but mc stopped the last chain from collapsing, runes ran all over the chain and seemed to be sealing his heart
"Demon, today is your death"
the beggar launches forward and in an instant arrives in front of mc and kicks him in the stomach then upwards then downwards, little by little mc got destroyed, heavily injured
an outburst rage came forward and made the mc retreat tens of kilometers, one chain remained
you would think the mc would be afraid, but he laughed, he laughed like a crazy insane demon
"To think you are in the "'communion with dao" stage, there is no chance I can beat you, it is my loss Hahaha
but this isn't the End Hahaaha
you will All Die with Me!!!!"
Instantly the Chain broke, and a black heart with red fire exploded with energy, cultivators expected the mc to only get a boost in power but something even more shocking happened
Instantly! the World became darker, clouds came from all the surrounding hundreds of kilometers and a Heavenly Tribulation started
in a few seconds the entire surrounding hundreds of kilometers were surrounded by lightning even if they all escaped in the fastest way, it is inevitable they would all die today, this was Suicide!!
Instantly LIGHTNING HITS!
THE ENTIRE HUNDRED KILOMETERS WAS FILLED WITH BLUE LIGHT
ENDLESS LIGHT THAT FILLED THE ENTIRE HUNDRED KILOMETER
IT HITS! *BOOM*
IT HITS! *BOOM*
IT HITS! *BOOM*
IT HITS AGAIN AND AGAIN! *BOOM* *BOOM* *BOOM*
EVERYONE DIED BY THE SECOND HIT EXCEPT MC AND THE BEGGAR
The beggar smiled, it seemed this was the end, the Heavens were Enraged, there was no way in this world a Dark matter cultivators could be left alive, dark matter itself can corrode the entire world if left by itself, it would bring complete chaos to the Eternal Dao
there was no way the Dao would allow this
ONE LAST INSANE LIGHTNING HIT AND BOTH THE MC AND BEGGAR DIE!
THE LIGHTNING DIDNT STOP IT KEPT HITTING AND HITTING even after all living beings in the area died!!
a few weeks later, a Black-red heart washes away in an unsuspecting island, an animal tried to eat it but it was as solid as a rock
a few days later, little by little this heart began to beat
and beat and beat
and beat and beat
and a small new born was being conceptualized and begin to grow
from a similar form to a child in a womb
to a 1 year old to a 2 year old till it reached a 10 year old's body
the child at first had no memories
but little by little memories came flooding in
and a huge smile appeared
and 2 pairs of red eyes flashed !
this was the result of experiment
an imperishable Eternal body!

2023.05.29 02:33 Mailman765 Operation Lazarus part 1
Operation Lazarus part one
Operation Lazarus part one
We woke up early that morning to the sounds of pots clanging and water boiling. The smell of rotting meat fills my nose immediately as I step out of my quarters, I see many men talking to each other eating there food. if you can call it that, “food” consists of freeze dried mystery meat with mixed vegetables. It smells horrible and tastes like nothing. I walk over to my commanding officers quarters to ask for my assignment for the day. I’m posted on east side side bay 6. Walking over my boots are constantly being soaked in mud and gore from my fellow men. I pass by large craters from bombing raids. I see men collecting dog tags from the fallen to send back home. The people of yavik-4 are savage in resistance they have an iron defense. They just don’t give up. I finally reach my post. The boards creak in the platform as I step up. I sling my rifle off my shoulder and rest it on the edge of the trench. I take aim into the distance. The fog is too great to see through. I stood at that post in silence for 7 hours. Without food or breaks. My legs were trembling by the end of it and I was about to collapse on to the floor when I was suddenly awoken by a loud bang. I then hear someone yell “take cover!” I dive down into the mud covering my head with my hands. I see the plums of smoke and hear the explosions in the distance. I hear screams of pain and agony I hear flames in the distance. The artillery fired until night fall. But this was not the end of it, it never is. I hear a whistle blow as people yell at me to go. It’s time to begin the counter charge. We leap up from the ground and climb up into no man’s land. We all rush across the wasteland of skulls and helmets. I see the crimson beams from our rifles light up the fog. I saw the enemy. I saw my men being shot to pieces, I see them being brutally slaughtered by them. I saw the enemy approaching me. All of my compassion was gone as my vision blurred. I yelled as loud as I could and charged full speed at him digging my bayonet into it hard chest. Pulling it out and stabbing him again and again with all of my hatred. He was an enemy and It was my job to seek and destroy him. I brutalized that man like an animal. Practically foaming at the mouth as the blood drained from his body. He didn’t suffer for long. I continued my charge. All I could think about was to kill and move forward. I jumped into an enemy trench. I pulled out my heavy pistol. Searching the trenches. I shot on sight. The bullet from the pistol splattered red mist and gore everywhere. The blood seeped into my tattered uniform. I heard a shot go by. It struck me in the side. The pain was intense. My muscles clenched up as I fell to the ground. I heard some men yell at me “ medics incoming stay down!” The pain was spreading across my side. I was starting to see blurry. I slowly drifted in and out of consciousness. I had forgotten what had happened. I only remover being shot and waking up in a medical tent.

2023.05.29 02:32 nodewai alrighty so today I'm going to be smoking tea out of a water pipe to get the ultimate caffeine buzz [OC]
alrighty so today I'm going to be smoking tea out of a water pipe to get the ultimate caffeine buzz and I honestly do think that I am going to get that in today's video I think I'm gonna get a bigger Buzz than I would get if I just normally drank tea I think I'm gonna get a bigger caffeine Buzz than I would get if I drank a monster I think I'm gonna get a bigger caffeine Buzz than I would get if I took a caffeine pill I think I'm gonna get the bigger caffeine Buzz than I would get if I smoked a tea cigarette because well today as said I'm gonna be smoking tea out of a water pipe and at least with tobacco when you're smoking it out of a water pipe it just comes through so much more intensely and so as such I expect the the caffeine Buzz that I'm gonna be getting in today's video to be quite the intense one that is for sure I don't know whether I'm actually going to get a caffeine Buzz or not but if I do I'll be pretty happy and I'm saying I'll be pretty happy My overall expectations for this experience though are pretty positive I previously smoked a tea cigarette and honestly it was pretty good it tasted pretty good it smoked Pretty good overall it was pretty good I ain't gonna lie y'all and as such I expect the tea to smoke pretty well out of a water pipe I expect it to taste pretty decent and everything like that kind of thing and I think maybe I'll get a little bit of a feeling kind of a kind of thing from it kind of thing I've got my words just a little bit jumbled up I do definitely think I'm gonna get a little bit of a feeling maybe a little bit of a buzz from the tea not sure if I actually am going to I definitely feel like I felt something after smoking a tea cigarette maybe I'll get something from this if I don't I'll have to let you guys know but if I do I'll also have to let you guys know that is for sure but what is the tea that I'm gonna be using to smoke in today's video or what is the tea that I'm going to be smoking in today's video to say it more concisely today I'm going to be smoking some bigelows earl gray black tea you know I'm saying and overall I am very excited to smoke some of this because this is my personal favorite tea this is the tea that I drink every single morning right after I eat breakfast you know what I'm saying uh you have some five packs and I don't have any open five packs right now so I'm gonna have to go ahead and open this up and then after that I'm gonna go ahead and have to get a tea bag out cut it open go and put some of that in this bowl right here and then after that what I'm

actually smoking really well and honestly it doesn't taste bad either that's actually really good that's not bad at all that's not bad at all wow now don't get me wrong there's a lot of tobacco residue on the bowl and inside the water pipe and everything like that so the taste is definitely not as clean as it would be if I was using a clean water pipe that is for sure but I can still taste the tea I can still taste the tea and it honestly tastes like a slightly hmm is it more or less intense it tastes similar I think this is the right way of putting it it tastes similar yet different to how it tastes when you're drinking it after soaking it in water that's what it tastes like wow it tastes similar yet different I am pretty impressed right now I remember why I enjoyed smoking a tea cigarette so much now I ain't gonna lie y'all so much smoke so much smoke this stuff Burns so well man oh man no complaints on my behalf y'all and it's super smooth as well super smooth almost no roughness at all super smooth wow and it just stays lit I don't even gotta relight it man this stuff is great this stuff is great y'all I ain't gonna lie man oh man I'm gonna go and try to grab myself a little bit of a screenshot real quick gotta grab myself a little bit of screenshot you know I'm saying I'm saying certainly no complaints on my behalf though man wow I am legitimately impressed right now I really did not expect this experience to be this good and I will admit I'm feeling a little bit of something from it I'm feeling a little bit something from it it might just be possible it might just be Placebo if I can say it correctly it might just be Placebo placebo still can't say correctly I have no clue but I am oh oh man that smoke was sitting in there for like 10 seconds and then it kicked my ass man yeah man stale smoke is the worst oh my god oh but I definitely am feeling like slightly more awake than I was at like the beginning of this video and I definitely feel like I'm feeling more awake because of caffeine like I'm not actually feeling more awake I'm just feeling more aware more awake because of the caffeine I don't know if smoking tea actually has this effect I really have no clue I just chose the title of this video because I thought it was funny and I don't know if it's placebo but I actually do feel like I'm getting a caffeine buzz from smoking tea right now and I'm not joking about that this is hilarious man I actually do feel like I've got caffeine in my system going into my system right now man this is hilarious y'all man this is a good experience this is a good experience and I still got a bunch more to smoke too I don't think I'm gonna pack a second ball but man I'm impressed y'all I'm impressed this stuff Smoke's great it tastes pretty good kind of thing it actually does give you a caffeine Buzz I think I'd do this again I do this again this is pretty good oh man wow that's still smoke just kicks your ass take another sip of water God damn sheesh who God damn man oh like when you actually first light up the tea it's really not all that rough but once you let the smoke sit in there for just a minute it gets really rough really fast that is for sure more so than tobacco smoke I definitely have to say but man I'm feeling good right now I'm feeling like I got like a huge I feel like I just injected [ __ ] caffeine into my into my into my veins I ain't gonna lie oh that's how I feel right now I feel like I just injected caffeine into my veins man I'm feeling great right now y'all I'm feeling great right now is this Placebo or is this not somebody who knows what they're talking about please let me know in the comments down below I gotta know whether smoking tea actually gives you caffeine or not I feel like this is totally Placebo but I also feel like it's totally working and I really have no clue in all honesty I didn't even have to light that like my lighter went out and I didn't even like that that was still burning what I can't believe this stuff is still burning it's still going that is crazy oh I actually feel like I'm getting buzzed right now like actually like after taking those last couple hits I really do feel like I'm getting buzzed right now I think part of it is probably because there's so much tobacco residue in my water pipe because I've smoked a lot of tobacco products through it uh that I'm probably getting some of that tobacco residue coming through in all honesty and that stuff seems to be hitting pretty good but I I do also really feel like I'm getting a caffeine Buzz too like no joke I don't know what the deal is but I actually feel like I'm getting caffeine Buzz which is absolutely nuts what it kind of made the title of this video as a meme it's like it'll be pretty funny oh yeah smoking tea out of a water pipe to get the ultimate caffeine buzz you know yeah funny title count no no I actually am getting the ultimate caffeine boss this is great this is a fantastic experience like I I thought wow I don't really have to have anything to say right now I'm kind of at a loss for words of water and I've still got more to smoke too man y'all man wow yeah no no complaints on my behalf feeling good right now let's go let's go and smoke some more oh that's just that's just it being cold today dang I'm really impressed right now I'm really impressed right now feeling really good right now the tea taste as said at the beginning of this video is actually or as I said at the beginning this the start of this experience I do suppose is actually coming through pretty decently I can actually taste some of that Earl Gray like taste kind of thing I'm getting like a caffeine Buzz it's not super rough it's actually really smooth honestly it burns really well smoking tea out of a water pipe good experience I'd do this again like actually I'm not kidding this is not a meme I'd actually do this again I have zero quorums of smoking tea out of a water pipe again this has actually been pretty good and I'm actually feeling pretty good right now man maybe I should start Mass producing t-cigarettes I have to start doing that that'd be pretty funny I didn't get a line let's see if I can get myself another little screenshot real quick might need to get this re-lit first though oh well I think that was just about all there was to it there's not really much left in here and I am honestly I'm I'm a little bit out I'm a little bit out kind of thing I think I think the water pipe is out I'm all good kind of thing I'm feeling pretty good right now man man I think I think I'm good I think I'm good I'm gonna go and give you guys my final thoughts in just a moment wow yeah uh smoking smoking tea out of a water pipe it's been a good experience my nose is running it's been a good experience though it really has actually like no joke been a good experience I I really was not expecting this to be that good of an experience but you could actually taste the tea coming through to an extent if it was if my water pipe was cleaner you could taste it better but to an extent you can taste the tea coming through and it actually tastes like tea it wasn't rough the tea smokes really well and I'm actually feeling something from it like I don't know if it's actually a caffeine Buzz or whether it's just the nicotine residue in the water pipe or maybe it's just Placebo I really have no clue but I definitely do feel like I'm feeling something right now legitimately no complaints on my behalf I'm feeling great right now I'm feeling great right now y'all man smoking tea out of a water pipe it's been a good experience it's been a good experience I would excuse me I would definitely do this again I'd definitely do this again man wow was not expecting

28, female, 5’8, 200, no known health problems or medications. Symptoms started 7 days ago.
Is this a foreign body?
I have pain in my throat that started after eating a piece of grilled meat. My doctor did an x ray of my mandible instead of imaging of my neck.

2023.05.29 02:29 Admirable_Drink8679 Is my Dog Sick?
I have a 14-18m Male Black Lab & Chow mix. He is extremely reactive and always has been since I adopted him at 6m from a local shelter. He just saw a vet a month ago for an annual and got a clean bill of healh and is eating and going to the bathroom fine.
He is very high energy and daily routine consists of 1hr of 1:1 play with his best friend, and 1.5hrs of walking throughout the rest of the day. He shows absolutely no interest in any type of play other than wrestling and walking.
Issue: Last few weeks he has been acting like he wants to go out constantly, but when we go out he will walk a bit then just freeze and stare at me with this expectant look. His mouth hangs open and his lips stretch wide and he just stares. When I try and go a different direction he refuses, but he also refuses to go back home. When he finally do get back, he whines and doesnt want to go in. As best I can tell he doesn't seem in physical pain. My vet can't see me for 3 weeks (unless I ask for an emergency visit). Any thoughts on what could be going on?

2023.05.29 02:24 Smarsh514 Question on amount of food.
So two weeks in (go me!) and I’ve listened to tons of podcasts and have read tons of info regarding carnivore. Recently I heard some guy, can’t remember who it was, say that we should eat past full but not forcefeed so that way we can take a break do about 5-7 hours and eat again and then be done for the day. So basically 2mad. I find that I’m really not hungry until about 10am everyday and I eat around then and I get hungry about 2pm and then about 6pm. I know it’s best to do what works for me but today for example I ate for breakfast: 2 eggs and 2 pieces of bacon. Lunch: about 5-6oz of baby back rib meat with 2 tbsp of butter. Dinner: 6oz ribeye with a little cheese because it’s Sunday 😜.
My question is… it doesn’t seem like a lot of food but I truly can’t eat that much. I get so full so fast and I’m content. I make sure my fat is adequate. Is this okay? I heard some people say to eat a bunch so that my body isn’t starved but I feel fine eating to satiety.

2023.05.29 02:16 24_pigs_and_a_duck Help!!!!
| || |
This year my stone fruit is suffering from an awful mystery ailment. Specifically my elephant heart plum and damson plum. (My frost peaches are f*cked too but I have a handle on what that is and how to treat it) submitted by 24_pigs_and_a_duck to FruitTree [link] [comments]
Some of the leaves are curling like they have leaf curl aphid which I battled last year with good success (but I can't find aphids) other parts are withering. The leaves just crumble and turn black in certian parts, as well as some of the new shoots.
I have been looking quite closely and noticed a few gummy weeping spots but it looks different than gummosis.
I'm in northwest Washington so I am aware it's kind of my fault for thinking I had any chance of successfully growing peaches and plums- I didn't know what I was getting into when I planted the trees 4 years ago.
Please help me identify what's going on!! Is it gummosis? Is it blight? Can plums get leaf curl virus as well? Is there anything I can do about it or are the trees a total loss?
I do try to keep everything as organic as possible but I'm not above treating with something else if I can't control it by "organic" means. I've sprayed preemptively with a Bordeaux mixture but I really am at a loss here as to what to do.
The pictures in the post are of my elephant heart plum but my oldest damson looks the same.
2023.05.29 02:07 Narrow_Muscle9572 I don't have much time left... I need to make this quick.
What you are about to read is both a confession and an apology. I don't know how much time I have so I will keep it as short as I can. I was coming back home from work a few nights ago. It was dark and I was tired from my shift when suddenly a deer ran out in front of my truck. I locked my brakes but couldn't stop in time. Feeling my heart pounding I just sat in my truck, staring at the motionless deer laying in the middle of the road. I had never killed anything before, intentionally or accidentally. As much as I wanted to get home, take a shower and go to bed, I couldn't just let it lay there. Someone could run it over causing real damage to their undercarriage or, God forbid, they swerve to avoid it and end up falling over a hundred feet into the river below, hitting dozens of trees on the way down. I couldn't let that be on my conscience, so I did what the good lord Jesus would have done. I put on my emergency lights and got out of the truck to pull the carcass off the road. However, as I was doing this I saw something move in the deers lower gut. Seeing this made my heart sink because at the time I thought maybe the dead deer was going to give birth. While holding in a gag and pulling the body to get it off the road, whatever was in the deer crawled out of its… backside, ran up the leg I was holding onto and bit my hand. It was too fast and the night was too dark so I have no idea what it could have been. Instinctively I flung the creature off of me and heard it scamper away through the grass. Wondering what the hell just attacked me, I inspected the wound. The wound produced very little blood and looked no worse than what a cat would do when it plays a little too roughly. Since my heart was pounding out of my chest and I had most of the deer carcass off the road, I figured I had done my duty and it was time to head home. As soon as I got home, I barely had the energy to take off my clothes, so all hopes I had of taking a shower were lost and as soon as my head hit the pillow I was out like a light. The next morning I felt sluggish and cold. My teeth were chattering violently. It reminded me of a flu, however my nose wasn’t stuffed up and I wasn’t congested. The wound on my hand was red, but not swollen. Still, I was worried and made a call to set up a doctor's appointment. Thankfully I was able to get seen right away, however after the exam the doctor said he could find nothing wrong with me but the blood tests would take a few days before the results would come in. I am not the kind of person to tell someone how to do their job, especially if their job meant years of education and twice that many having their own practice. However I made it clear that I strongly disagreed with what the doctor said. When I got home, my stomach was complaining. I ate shortly before getting off work the day before so there was no reason for my stomach to complain as much as it was. I tried eating soup but it tasted like fermenting compost. No joke, that's what it tasted like. When I checked the expiration date, I was surprised that it still had eight months left before it was considered bad. At the time I figured that whatever was wrong with me was affecting my senses. My grandma said that 7Up and ginger ale was as close to magic as it gets when it comes to being sick, but since I didn't have any in the house, I made a few calls and had it delivered. However, that too tasted bad. My stomach kept complaining so in an attempt to silence it, I decided to make something that I could never resist. My moms specialty: meatloaf. If nothing else, it was comfort food and my favorite as a kid. Lo and behold, it tasted amazing. However when I tried adding ketchup like I always did, I nearly gagged from the smell of it. I ended up eating all of it in a single sitting and afterwards I felt really good. So good in fact that I decided to head into town to pick up a few groceries. As I walked around with the shopping cart, going down the same aisles as I always did, the items I usually got held no appeal. I love bananas, but they smelt like they had been soaking in gasoline for a few days, the vegetables stank of curdled milk and the cheese might as well have been… Well, I’ll let you imagine what that smelt like. The only thing that smelt good was the meat. No, it didnt smell good. It smelt divine, the way I imagine heaven smells like. I filled up my cart with hamburger, chicken breasts, pork chops, pork butt, whole turkeys, chicken legs, ribs, spiral hams, bacon, hotdogs and so much more. People looked at me funny as I went to pay for the items and some even asked if I was planning on having a cookout. I am ashamed to admit it, but I snapped at those people and told them it wasn't any of their business. When I got home I felt sick again and decided that some pork chops were in order. As I started to get everything ready, I opened the cream of mushroom and the smell that emerged from the can made me throw up in the sink. Later I checked the expiration date and saw that it still had a few months to go. The can wasn’t dented or punctured, so there was no reason for it to smell rancid. I cooked the pork chops plain only adding a little olive oil on the bottom of the glassware so it wouldn't stick. The wait seemed to take forever. At some point before the pork chops were done I found myself mindlessly eating away at the raw hamburger. Taking grape sized pinches here and there. I knew it was disgusting, but I couldn't stop myself. Each bite hit the spot and scratched an itch I didn't know I had. By this time it was after office hours but I called the general practitioner to see if there were any updates. All the while, I kept eating the raw meat. I was too embarrassed to tell them about my new eating habits and instead sounded like an idiot when I had nothing to say other than to ask about the blood test, which I knew the results would be in sometime next week. Because of this I could tell the person on the other line was annoyed. I spent the rest of the day eating and worrying. I must have paced for a few miles before I decided to go to bed. At the time I figured that I might be able to sleep off whatever was happening to me, and if this was not to be it would make the day that the blood test comes in arrive faster. However I couldn't go a few hours without food before the cravings made me wake up and rummage through the fridge. I blacked out at some point during the night and found myself outside at the wooden fence, trying to bait the neighbor's cat with a raw chicken leg that I already ate half of. I was scared. Paranoid that whatever bit my hand might have given me something really nasty. But I knew that worrying about it wasn't going to do me any favors so I decided to do what I normally do to clear my head and went for a drive. Usually this would have worked, but my stomach kept complaining. I had been eating for nearly a day straight, so I knew I wasn't hungry. What else could I do other than wait for the blood test to come back? Trying to distract myself, I decided to turn on the radio and listen to one of the three radio stations that worked in town. As I was fumbling with the knobs in my old beat up truck, I turned the corner and saw a man walking across the street to get his mail. I hit the brakes as hard as I could, but it was too little too late and he bounced off the grill and went flying through the air. Terrified, I ran out to see if there was anything I could do to help him, but when I drew close I could see that he was all sorts of messed up. He was conscious and asked me to give him a ride to the hospital because he would not be able to afford the bill for an ambulance. However, that was when I noticed that the femur was sticking out of his leg. I licked my lips and before I knew it I started biting and eating around the bone as the man screamed, and in his condition he was unable to get away or fight me off. I don't know how much time passed, but at some point I became aware that people were starting to gather. All of them were too shocked to do anything but stare. Embarrassed and terrified, I ran to the truck and drove off. It wasn't like I could go anywhere. Since Gray Hill is a small town, most of the onlookers knew who I was. So I did the only thing I could think of and went home. There is so much more I want to say, but I don't have much time. The sirens are getting louder. I am sorry

2023.05.29 02:07 Independent-Note-46 Not sure if this was low blood sugar or what…
I’ve been on this for 8 weeks now. First time this has happened. I am not even to .50 because I’ve had a hard time with side effects. I’m still losing though so not worried about that.
Anyway, woke up feeling kinda yucky (I do for a few days after shots anyway) so I ate very bland (English muffin w/butter, banana w/pb) then realized I need to focus on water and drank some and had a piece of cheddar cheese for some protein & some black tea w/honey. Felt good enough to get up and do a little tidying up. Vacuumed and then started to feel nauseous.
Sat down and sipped some water but it hit me so hard out of nowhere. My hands stared shaking first. Then my hands & feet started feeling tingly and heavy and numb. My upper lip also got tingly. I got all over hot and back of my neck felt sweaty. Thought I was going to pass out oand throw up (I’ve never passed out before) I got really scared and my husband got me ice and I got a glass of OJ and some Honey Nut Cheerios to start munching on. I felt better after about 10 min of eating and drinking that. Then I crashed and fell asleep for an hour. Now I’m just lethargic and feeling like I just need to stay in a horizontal position.
I know I need to focus on protein & water MUCH better than I have been lately. But damn. This was super scary and I’m afraid to continue because like I said I haven’t felt my best on this stuff. I need to add I also started Zoloft 3 weeks ago and have upped my dose to 50mg a few nights ago. I don’t know what to blame this on.
Has this happened to you and if so, what did you do to feel better? I feel like everyone is just going to say electrolytes lol. Thank you!!
