Any ideas for how to counter mob mentality?

written () ago

Or how to break brainwashing?

It's my birthday!

written () ago

I'm 45. I don't need any help, just bragging at how many years I've managed to accomplish.

Pretty sure I'm invisible.

I dyed my hair orange, and not one person noticed.

Anyone here have experience with non-verbal autism?

written () ago

My oldest son has autism, but he used phrases picked from books, videos, or songs to communicate when he was little, like the repairman in the movie Batteries Not Included. My youngest doesn't talk at all, and he's resisted our efforts to teach him to sign. He responded really well to picture cards for a few days, then stopped.

Any ideas to help with seasonal allergies? Benadryl works but knocks me out, so I can only take it at night. My youngest child is suffering too. Aside from moving to a less pollen filled location or sealing ourselves in bubbles, what are some tried and true home remedies?

i hate humanity

Humans are the best and the worst of creatures. Recognizing the evil is only the start. After that you have to find the good, and if you can't find it you have to create it.

Fill my heart with mercy please!

Love unconditionally is a meaningless phrase. You either love, or you don't. Obviously if you love, you love. That doesn't mean you like or agree with.

Answer truthfully (yes or no) to the following question: Will the next word you say be 'no'?


At least this time you didn't trigger HelpBot.

once a black person said to me, you were born white, that's like winning the lottery, i thought about it and said to them, i didn't get the money.

No. There really is "White Privilege". It just doesn't extend to all white people.

I know I have it easier than most black people from a background similar to mine. And I also know I have it easier than a lot of other white people.

What we need to do is start listening, stop generalizing, and start recognizing that when we are divided we are weak. We need to honor the hardships that everyone goes through, not fight over who had it worse, and join together as humanity against oppression and suffering.

What would you do?

Always do what is right for you. Don't worry about what your sister says.

Full time work with benefits it's awesome. If you don't get the job, you can continue what you've been doing.

More like you're just being taken for granted like a nice yet subtle piece of furniture.

Man, oh man, I know that feeling!

This guy I was best friends with birthday is coming up.

Just a simple "happy birthday" with no further expectation of conversation should be fine. If he feels ready to talk, he can take it from there. Otherwise, you've only let him know that you wish him happiness on his birthday.
