A lot of people seeking euthanasia are in a very weak physical condition, in which getting by themselves and jumping from said bridge would be a feat. This includes people who are bedridden or who have temporary memory blackouts, you have people who would if only they were allowed to leave hospital or if their families would leave them alone to do so.

People seeking this usually aren't healthy, independent and self reliant. Those already jump the bridge.

I believe Australia recently approved a law which allows for assisted dying, however, I'm not 100% sure if that's the case and if so, whether foreigners are allowed or in which state does it work.

My recommendation would be to search online for an End Of Life Companion or a Death Doula. They will be able to provide you with the information you seek, free, and if you wish, they can also assist you in person for a fee.

Good luck OP

I second the lemmy saying there is a considerable gap between discovery and implementation.

But to answer your question, I believe we are due some major breakthrough regarding psilocybin and other psychedelic substances which have been banned since the 60s. Research is well underway and with our current technology + knowledge in neuroscience we're due to catch up quickly, unless everything gets tangled in too much red tape.

Improvement in mental health has a pretty immediately impact in our lives after all.

People are making some good points about cultural background differences and asking whether you have history already.

Others say, keep doing what you do and don't let them get to you. I want to jump on that bandwagon, this is going to sound silly cringe but...

... greeting in a polite, confident and friendly manner asserts social dominance. You have no fear. You are the initiator; you take the lead. Be that person.

I think it makes a good overall visual description but personally I believe the actual creature must have been more pleasant to look at.

As someone who has never played Minecraft, I'd be terrified. It's really easy to die when you are not familiar with the rules of the game.

I can confirm I've seen what you are talking about, but have no idea. Not at every butchers though.

I'm not much of a crumbed meats buyer, but occasionally will buy crumbed fish and some places also have that unnatural yellow crumbing.

OP you've made the mistake of presuming the world at large knows what DNI stands for.

I'm also in the "stop butchering my language" camp, however I see you don't mean using Latine or Latinx as a replacement for Latino and Latina in general. You are asking whether non-binary people prefer Latinx or Latine in their personal ID documents. Which is one of the few cases I think using the term is justified.

But since I'm not part of your demographic in question I don't know if my answer is valid. I guess Latine is at least easier to pronounce than Latinx so there ya go.

@Mothra@mander.xyz avatar

Well then I'm not sure I see your point- I think people should have their pronouns/gender acknowledged in their ID. Suggesting a gender neutral for everyone in a language that clearly has been gendered since its inception doesn't make any sense to me. Let each person have whatever option best reflects their case scenario

It's not an awful lot of calories in difference. Pecans, like all nuts, are highly caloric because they're high in fat. It just so happens that your praline pecans replace part of the pecans with sugar, which is less caloric than fats. So 28 gr of praline pecans have less cals than 28gr regular pecans.

Thanks, that was a good read. FB is so disgusting. Had I known a tool like this existed I may have stayed. I haven't used for at least 5 years, but I kept the messenger lite app to stay in touch with people via chat. They killed the app and that was it for me. The feed is garbage. Meta is garbage.

I've read the ars article linked too, and I think this attitude is so petty- most people aren't power users or inclined to customise their social media/browser experience. The amount of people who would use the tool would be minimal in comparison with the majority who happily eats their feed without question. Meta is greed incarnate.

Whenever you are loading the washing machine, or hanging the laundry to dry/loading the dryer, don't put the socks straight away. If you get one sock, set it aside, and wait to have the other sock before putting them wherever they need to go. This way you drastically reduce the amount of odd socks/ socks with no pair.

If you find a single sock when you're at the dryer, look for it in the washing or on the floor; you know it has to be there because you make the habit of always loading the pair. If you have a single sock at the washer, don't wash it; wait until you find the other one, keep it in your basket.

That helps too but sometimes I run out of mesh bags. Also not applicable to loading the wash, only to unloading.

I'm a 1, a woman if this weighs in your data collection, and the answer is, sometimes but not too often. It really depends on the mood.

It's the same with movies really, I can fantasize about a million stories in my mind, heck I can be the protagonist but I still enjoy being unable to predict what's going to happen even on just purely a visual level, not that porn has very intricate plots.

What puts me off most of the time is having to go through the search. I'm very picky and having to see the "wrong" type of content in order to find the "right" can really put me off or sometimes bore me.

Eh not that it's crystal clear to me but the winner actually looks much more realistic in terms of what's achievable for real humans than the runner ups. I think there is some sort of merit in the clout category, all participants already have a media presence which for better or worse means they drive some engagement. I'm not saying it has virtue though.

I take it as a silly competition. A just because you can thing.

Worry more about your job than your grades. Create a stable source of income, your degree can wait especially if it's not a traditionally stable profession (medicine, accountant, lawyer, etc).

Exercise and maintain your strength and flexibility. This is super important, more so than the job. Staying healthy early on will save you a lot of money in doctors appointments by the time you hit your late 20s.

It's really good, very lean meat, slightly sweet and not too gamey. It's very expensive here in NSW at least, I've had better luck with prices in Victoria but haven't been there in ages so not sure of how it's priced in comparison to other meats atm.

I like a variety of genres, I guess two of my easy favourites are Jurassic Park and The Lion King. I'm interested in good stories, with a preference for action and/or animation/ and/or special FX.

My least preferred genres are rom coms as they tend to be cheesy and lack both action and vfx. Also not a fan of gore horror.

If the plot and characters are lame I'll still watch it for the visuals or for the action. But nothing beats a good story.

How do you spend your upvotes? What about tips?

I have heard a few different strategies for this. For example "Upvote everything, even if you disagree with it, if it contributes to discussion". But my concern with this strategy is that it means the first posted comments just get upvoted the highest regardless of their quality relative to other comments (as all comments which...

Mothra ,
@Mothra@mander.xyz avatar

I disagree with your opinion, yet I haven't downvoted it.

This is what you think and probably a lot of people share your opinion, and I consider that valid even if I disagree.

I reserve my downvotes for rude people, people who spread misinformation, who really got the answer wrong, or who are trolling or riling people up.

Mothra ,
@Mothra@mander.xyz avatar

I upvote the comments that I either like, and/or agree with, comments I feel like are expressing my own thoughts in the same manner or better than what I would.

Downvotes are for very wrong answers, rude people, trolls, etc.

Boring comments and comments I disagree with but don't necessarily make me upset get no downvotes nor upvotes.

My mother was super passive aggressive. I grew up to consider it normal and it took me a while to see ot for what it is. Just like you describe, her style was a friendly demeanor coupled with acid remarks. And the remarks were absolutely on purpose, I know this because she would often tell me how smartly she gave so and so a comeback and so on, and how they felt ashamed but didn't say anything back at her etc etc.

I was also on her line of fire sometimes, oh boy. It was so tough to recognise it but once I did I stood up against it. Whenever I see people behaving like that on a regular basis I just try my best not to interact with them.

Mothra ,
@Mothra@mander.xyz avatar

Kudos to you for ending the lineage. Yes I totally agree in many cases passive aggression isn't deliberate, but it can be very harmful to those receiving it anyway. I've seen my mother do both. Pointing out the deliberate cases on the spot will also rip off her mask like you say, but in the other cases it's very hard to make her see it. Cue in gaslighting and denial.... Eventually she does come around though but she needs to see the damage to understand she was being aggressive in the first place.

Drunken driver who snapped photo going 141 mph before deadly collision imprisoned for 17 years ( abcnews.go.com )

Darryl Anderson was drunk behind the wheel of his Audi SUV, had his accelerator pressed to the floor and was barreling toward a car ahead of him when he snapped a photo of his speedometer. The picture showed a car in the foreground, a collision warning light on his dashboard and a speed of 141 mph (227 kph)....

How do I make enough money to live?

Yes, I do have a full-time job, and I even enjoy it, but it doesn't pay enough to survive in this hellscape of a world we live in. I lack the college degree required to get almost any decent-paying job (plus my last job hunt took MONTHS to get a lead), I don't have the skills or originality to become an online content creator,...

What kind of vehicle inspections? Is he a mechanic or are these inspections something most people could easily be doing after a 2 day course?

What would you do if you were on an underground train, when suddenly the train shook, you passed through a portal, and the next thing you knew your carriage was lying in an unknown new world?

Edit: apparently this is a very common form of Japanese storytelling called an isekai. There are 8 billion people in this world, no idea can be original. And sometimes you miss out on things many other people know. I'm clearly one of today's lucky 10000.
