really happy for you and i just hope its good therapy which can be hard to find but its out there <3

oh as for nice stuff to get into, cant believe im saying this but have you ever watched ghibli films? because you might really enjoy the escapism and the protagonists are pretty much always cool women and girls. like princess mononoke, its fucking excellent. sorry for terrible quality of trailer but trust me its much better than the US-narrated miramax trailer that completely misrepresents the story lol

Why is it suddenly "cool" to oppose mass murder

#7610

#7611
i think swampman is talking about the mass slaughter of animals required by the poultry industry, rather than the mass slaughter of human beings required by the north american settler states. irregardless,
#7612
swampman and goatstein are objectively correct about meatship.

my kid's 2nd bday gathering (the first one is the real party, the second one you just invite close family so it's a 'gathering' like juggalos would say) went well and ended with me drunkenly listening to fleetwood mac with my mother and making her cry by telling her how much i appreciate her. great success

I was in the Paris riots Saturday night. I got tear gassed pretty bad, scuffled with a cop, kicked a canister back at the CRS, had a motorcycle explode about 5 meters away from me, and then walking away from it all to a dinner party in a rich bourgeois neighborhood (where everyone in their suits looked at me suspiciously and scared, the sounds of explosions and smoke in the distance), I looked up and saw dozens of paper lanterns floating through the sky.

probably diverticulitus but it's not currently infected/inflammed, you just get this shit when you get older, thanks for the heads up everyone, that is to say, no one
#7622
speedy recovery! I hope it's not diverticulitis and if it is I hope they fix it!
#7623
getting older would bea lot more fun if there weren't this whole multitude of ailments that no one knows about that just make living real unpleasant but pose no significant threat to yr life

i feel like i've seen enough U$doctors to know 80% of them are quacks doing stethoscope stuff to finance stock market addictions. not gonna dig up krugerrands so doctor polo shirt can put two smooth fingers down my throat. if stalin had finished the job, we'd probably all be just as healthy and the dow would be at 500 or lower. "learn how to heal yourself and stop fuckin with them hospitals" --talib kweli Edited by toyot () #7630 Ever had one of those moments when you simultaneously feel very smart and also extremely dumb? This morning, as I quietly made as many preparations as possible for a very busy day before my toddler wakes up (any minute now), I decided I wanted to wear a particular pair of pants which happen to have developed a perfectly phone-sized hole in the left pocket. On the few occasions I've worn them over the last couple of months, I've had to keep my phone and other usual left-pocket items in my right pocket, along with its usual contents of wallet & keys, which is unwieldy and terrible. So I decided that, no, this would be the moment I finally pulled out the shitty$2 sewing repair kit and fix the damn pocket. It had been a long time since I'd bothered to repair a piece of clothing, because I am a shiftless asshole. So it was that it took 10 very long minutes to work out how to thread the needle, and the aforementioned smart-dumb moment was when I realised that the needle-threader is meant to go through the eye of the needle BEFORE you put the thread through the threader. Among other things, today I will be applying for both a new bank account and a Chinese visa, and yet I am struck by the feeling that I may have just overcome the day's biggest challenge already. As always, thanks for reading, and may God bless us all.

If you get a bank account in China like at ICBC you can use it to buy papers from academics there explaining the primary stage of socialism. There's no real reason for you to do it but you should definitely do it.

has there ever in the entire history of the paper been a guardian article that didn't handwring about any given leftist action being a potential boon to the right.

Unfortunately it was explained to me that the strayan Bank of China is a seperate entity so I will not have all the benefits of a real Chinese bank account (afaik you can't get one of those without Chinese ID, i.e. not for non-resident foreigners)

it's being covered as an anti-carbon-tax movement, if it's anything else that would be heartening

#7639
it's safe to assume that most Western governments and many slices of the bourgeoisie have far-right actors positioned and primed to hijack most "movements", domestic or foreign, that aren't explicitly socialist. that doesn't mean there's no place for socialists to participate in them, but rather the opposite, that socialists are under obligation to physically clear a space to advance their ideas and hold it against the state and its far-right slime molds for as long as possible.
