“The person who had given birth to me said I was a dead loss, so I decided it really must be true.” A few days before reading Earthlings I read Sayaka Murata's Convenience Store Woman and I really loved its humour and eccentric narrator. So, perhaps I approached Earthlings with the wrong expectations. Or maybe I was fooled by its cute cover ... I guess this will fulfill my yearly quota for Mickey Mouse watch-clad academics who solve ancient conspiracy filled puzzles. - - - Updated 5/31: Sometimes, I feel like Dan Brown is my nemesis. In interviews, he comes off as a smart, earnest guy (if a bit of an academic dweeb*) who has an obsession for puzzles, old art and conspiracy theories, but also as a guy who has no idea how to laugh at ... Other popular books, particularly those relating to developments in modern science such as The ABC of Atoms (1923a) and The ABC of Relativity (1925), are now of more historical interest. Even so, they continue to convey something of the intellectual excitement associated with advances in twentieth-century science and philosophy. Isaac Newton was born (according to the Julian calendar, in use in England at the time) on Christmas Day, 25 December 1642 (NS 4 January 1643) "an hour or two after midnight", at Woolsthorpe Manor in Woolsthorpe-by-Colsterworth, a hamlet in the county of Lincolnshire. His father, also named Isaac Newton, had died three months before. Born prematurely, Newton was a small child; his mother ...
2021.12.04 23:04 crinklyplant Why is the show Friends so wildly popular in the UK (and is it true that Seinfeld is generally hated?)
I know Friends was a huge hit in the US too but it has a rep for being incredibly popular in the UK, and have always wondered what is it that British people like so much about this particular American comedy. Your comedy is so much darker. Is it perhaps that you've got enough dark comedy in your own country, and if you're going to watch an American show, you want something light and friendly? Just curious. Thanks!

Sometimes im all for transitioning and i see myself en femme super pretty and everything and i think yeah i can do it i can be pretty. And then you see a super pretty girl walk by or on instagram and it kinda just demoralizes you. And you think like man ill never be that pretty maybe i shouldnt do this.

2021.12.04 23:04 FoulerVisitor7 Lag in just certain servers
Hi, I usually play on the us west and east servers but since the beginning of this season I've been laggy. This only happens on servers that don't have a (-) on their name. My ping is regularly from 60 to 70 on servers with (-) while if it does not have it it goes up to 190. Does anyone knows how to fix It?

2021.12.04 23:04 PeachStrings How to hear mic input while playing back midi recordings?
So I recently bought a Shure SM58, connected it to my focusrite 2i2, hooked everything up in pro tools.
I can record piano and play it back, but I can’t playback recordings from piano and speak into the mic at the same time, any suggestions?
I can hear mic input when not playing back any recordings if that helps

2021.12.04 23:04 brewstirs Volunteer/Observing Hours
Hey everyone! Hope you’re all doing well. I’m currently working towards my pre-reqs for grad school and I was wondering if anyone knows where I can volunteer or observe an SLP? I live in the Queens, NY area.
I was thinking of volunteering in a hospital but I would prefer something SLP based. Haven’t called any practices and asked yet but I’m honestly very nervous. I’m afraid I won’t volunteer anywhere and not build my resume.
Advice would be great.

2021.12.04 23:04 martedd Lost my father to alcoholism this morning.
I woke up this morning to find my father cold, motionless, and pale with a bottle of Dubra next to him. He was 52 and I’m 22, he had been heavily drinking in secret for all of my life. I watched my mother preform CPR and had to watch the EMT people rip her off of him as they attempted to do what they could. They said it was cardiac arrest. He struggled for years and was in an out of recovery but, for the last two years it has been a heavy decline and he just wasn’t the same person as before. He lost 40 pounds over the last few months due to the ulcers in his stomach and throat due to the drinking. I won’t lie, he wasn’t necessarily what you call a “good guy”. But he was my father and I loved him. I was the last to speak to him hours before we found him when I got up to pee at night, he was watching a documentary on the Beatles. All he ever wanted to do was put me and my brothers through school, and then drink his nights away on the couch. I don’t have much to say besides that, if you’re reading this and you have a family that wants you to get help. Go get fucking help. If anyone has advice or questions, please feel free.

2021.12.04 23:04 -B-0- Cheap place to travel in Christmas from Italy
I'm a 20 year old uni student, I want to explore the world and want to start with a trip this Christmas holidays (20december-12 January period), so the place I'm searching for has to be relatively cheap, both travel and accommodation and food, so no places like Paris London or other big cities, and probably most western Europe, and also a place, that can be explored in a satisfying manner in 2 weeks, notice that I'll rent a car there so I can move.
I was thinking about eastern Europe like Belarus, Russia, Ukraine because they're cheap plus I want to explore them, but I haven't got my passport yet so idk if I can make it in time, so I got to stick to schengen area, so no Balkans either, so no cheap places, maybe Lithuania, Latvia but I'm not sure, maybe Poland.
Idk that's why ik asking.
