The other reason is that the central focus of the story (perhaps I should have left in the 200 word summary) was how a seemingly insignificant event that occurs during the EU4 timeframe, i.e. the British landing in Quiberon (compared to say, the fall of Constantinople, discovery of the new world, reformation, enlightenment, Waterloo, etc) could have drastic differences on Europe as we know it today.

2023.03.21 11:56 BakeBoth9643 Legal Considerations for Junk Car Sales
Legal Considerations for Junk Car Sales Overview:
This article explores the legal aspects of selling a junk car in the United States. The discussion covers essential points such as defining a junk car, the importance of the vehicle title, disclosure responsibilities, sales tax, removal regulations, liability issues, and common questions about junk car sales. By understanding the legal considerations for selling a junk car, you can ensure a smooth transaction and avoid potential legal complications.
Selling a junk car offers an excellent opportunity for car owners to earn extra money. However, knowing the laws and regulations surrounding junk car sales is crucial to ensure a smooth transaction. So let’s start examining the legal aspects you must consider when selling a junk car in the United States. Identifying a Junk Car
Before delving into the legalities, it's essential to define a "junk car." Generally, a junk car is a vehicle that is no longer operational or too expensive to repair. Commonly, junk cars have high mileage, significant mechanical problems, or have been in accidents. Importance of Vehicle Title
The vehicle title is a primary concern when selling a junk car. Most states require a title for selling a car, as it is proof of ownership and must be transferred to the new owner. If you still need to get the title, you'll need to obtain a replacement from your state's Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV), typically by completing an application and paying a fee. Disclosure Responsibilities
It's crucial to disclose any known issues with the junk car, including mechanical problems, accidents, or damage. Failure to do so could lead to legal action by the buyer. To protect yourself, create a bill of sale with a section for the buyer to acknowledge they're purchasing the car "as-is" and are aware of any known issues. Sales Tax
Paying sales tax is required in most states when selling a junk car. The specific amount varies by state, so consult your local DMV for more information. Removal Regulations for Junk Cars
When selling a junk car, adhere to any vehicle removal regulations. Depending on your location, specific rules for disposing of junk cars may exist, such as inspections before towing or surrendering license plates upon sale. Addressing Liability Issues
Liability concerns are essential when selling a junk car. If the vehicle is involved in an accident after the sale, you could be liable if you didn't disclose known issues. Protect yourself by disclosing any problems and including an "as-is" statement in the bill of sale. Common Questions About Junk Car Sales
Q: Is a title necessary to sell a junk car?
A: Most states in the US require a title for selling a car.
Q: How can I obtain a new title for my junk car?
A: Generally, you'll need to complete an application and pay a fee to obtain a new title, but specific rules vary by state.
Q: Is sales tax required when selling a junk car?
A: Sales tax is typically required, depending on your residence.
Q: What should I do with the license plates?
A: License plate surrender requirements vary by state, so consult your local DMV for guidelines.
Q: Can I be held liable if the car is involved in an accident after selling it?
A: You could be liable if you failed to disclose known issues. Protect yourself by disclosing problems and including an "as-is" clause in the bill of sale. Conclusion
Selling a junk car can be a profitable venture when done correctly. By following the guidelines outlined in this article, including obtaining the vehicle's title, disclosing known issues, paying sales tax, adhering to removal regulations, and including an "as-is" clause in the bill of sale, you can navigate the process with ease.

2023.03.21 11:55 lemonpiespecial A messy, long yet quite interesting story of a very sad & lonely girl.
Trigger warning: grooming, narcissistic abuse.
I really wanted to share a little bit of my story cause I feel so overwhelmed and I do not know what to do with my life anymore. I'm so lost. And I've never felt lonelier.
I'm sitting at my computer after waking up with my "situationship'' person next to me (thats a whole another story, but we do have feelings for each other, yet we don't think we should be in a relationship together at this time in life). He asked me how I was this morning and I just burst into tears. I am not ok. That's all I could say and cry.
I took a sick leave from work because I can't motivate myself to work. I feel discardable and unimportant. I work in a very close knit office in a very specific company for 5 years, we are around 10 people in the office and I feel like my colleagues are not interested in me as a person. I feel so worthless and like nobody cares if I open my mouth to say anything. But I also don't care about being involved in the same old repetitive jokes, pretending I care about my colleague's child cause thats the only thing the conversation revolves around (and the same 5 stupid jokes that get repeated every single day). Now I can imagine you saying: well of course you feel like it, you get what you give .... However, would anyone care that I'm struggling daily with suicidal thoughts? Would they care I have found spirituality to search for purpose? Would they care that the salary I receive that 60-70% goes to bills and I can't afford to eat ? NO. As long as it's not small talk bullshit, they don't care or know how to respond. Yet, that's the main thing I'm concerned about. Not about their children's problems with their testicles (yes, the whole office knew that) or how another colleague is going shopping every week and planning her next trip to Italy cause she lives with her parents and can spend her money without paying the same amount of bills a single woman does living alone in the centre of the biggest city in the country (Eastern Europe). I've talked to my boss about a raise cause after 5 years, still living with less than a 1000 euro each month and the prices rising so much ... I can't live with that kind of money anymore. It's funny. All my boss says is: manage your finances better ...
In the past years I've lost most of my friends. My best friend was in love with the guy she set me up with (that's the situationship guy from the beginning) and around 10 months ago she said: "I can't look you in the eye anymore", cried how all she thinks about was the guy she set me up with and we came to a conclusion that this friendship is dead and she does not want to see me again. I said I'll wait for her cause I love her... and today is her birthday, she turns 28. We were best friends for 11 years and even got a stupid matching best friends tattoo back in the day. I still sleep with the teddy bear she gave me on my 19th birthday. When I found her in high school I thought finally ... a friend just for me. Our school mates thought we were lesbians. And we were a team for a while. But before her, for some reason, I've had difficulties to be and feel accepted in the friend group. Before high-school it was always a girl friend group who had a leader and the rest were her pawns. I got sick of being a soldier with no brain and I really wanted an equal part and respect with the whole group. Cause I thought and still think that I'm: real, honest, reliable & loyal af. All they saw was the friend who is not good enough cause I did not want to do always what they did, pursue the same stuff as them, be outside of the box they were putting themselves into. I always was that friend to start hating randomly... cause I let them? I'm not sure.
My family life ... I'd say my closest family is only my grandma and my cousin.. the two people i can actually be real with. I do have a mother, a stepdad and a half-brother 15 years younger. My mother is a covert narcissist. I do not know my biological father. I had a different dad growing up than my younger step-brother. I thought the dad that raised me was my biological father for a very long time until I found out all by myself at 9 y/o that my mother was married with another man that had my last name and voila! The dad that I thought was my real dad adopted me officially after he married my mom. His name is in my birth certificate. I only found that out when I was 20 (thanks again mom). My dad and my mom did not tell me they divorced when i was around 11 ... again, I found it out only by myself cause I was a curious kid. My mother changed boyfriends and then found my stepdad and to gain his house she had to give birth to a son... where my step-brother comes in. I was 15 y/o in the summer I got my step-brother ... and then at the end of the summer I lost my dad in a motorcycle crash. He was my buddy. The one who told me about his adventures on his bike while drinking a glass of light beer and playing cards. We watched movies, listened to music. He was really involved in forming who I am now. He was not perfect but I really felt the fatherly love from him. While my mom ... she only gave a shit when she got something out of me. That I got good grades, she boasted it was because she was smart. When I had my birthday, she celebrated her being so young and still looking so young cause she birthed me when she was 20. She wanted me to be her doll, looking perfect, with clothes she liked and she did not let me play around outside as a kid if I had the pretty clothes on. When I didn't do something she wanted to be done but she didn't ask nicely, just expected it to be done, she stood in the door frame of my tiny room screaming and shouting at me for 40 minutes straight and if i dared to even try to say something, just barely moving my mouth, I got yelled at louder and harder... and then I learned to disassociate. However, after my brother was in the picture, she just didn't give a shit about me as a child with needs. She stopped providing me with clothes and my grandma started helping... after that she said I looked ugly and that nobody would like me. She offered me (offered is a generous statement here, I had no choice) to pay to be a nanny for my brother my whole summer break from school. Yeah, I get it, I got some money, but you have to undertsand, she would give me such little pocket money, I could not even buy a decent lunch at school. I had to be alone with a 1/2 y/o for the whole summer. Every work day. When I should have been outside doing something with friends or making them in the least. People thought my younger brother was my son when I went out with him. Since those 2 summers I decided I will not have children of my own.
After those 2 summers I met my (now ex) boyfriend. We met on omegle (yikes) when I was 17 (yikes) and he ... was 27 (bigYikes). I was lonely, freshly without a dad, without good long-term friends, my parents paid no attention to me. I was drinking vodka with orange juice in my room alone while searching for friends online. Mostly they were men. But... context is important here. I was a very horny teenager. Like any guy is horny while being 16/17 ... this girl was a pedo's dream. I was very into Lolita aesthetic, I had just freshly read the book too. I'm not gonna lie, I was into older guys cause at that age, no boy who I liked and who was my age paid attention to me. I thought I was ugly. My parents didn't get me braces cause they were too expensive (yet my mom could buy fur coats and go to nice trips) and I felt very insecure with my smile. Yet ... one evening on omegle was what changed my life. I found a chat, the camera was off for him but on for me. He complimented my smile, how I looked. I never got that kind of attention. Then I found out we had our birthday on the same date which felt like a sign. Then we started skyping. After a week I saw his face. TBH, not the most handsome guy but it is not that important for me. He said he got jewellery for me. He also had a girlfriend from my country before which I thought was cool cause he knew the culture then. After a month of chatting and sexting he came to see me. I lied to my mom that I 'd be staying at my friends place for a weekend cause there was a party but I actually went to met him and we were staying at a hotel not too far from my home. The first thing we did was fuck. We did that the whole weekend with a few breaks of going to the movies, to eat and see the old town. After a month he offered me to go to him ... I explained the situation to my mom like this: I met someone, on the internet, he lives in West Europe and wants to invite me to visit. My parents agreed. Imagine that. My mother fucking sold me. At least that's how my grandma calls it. But you know, I didn't think like that when I was 17... I thought I was IN LOVE. But you know why my grandma said my mother sold me? My mother relied on HIM now to get me everything I'd need. Clothes, phones... etc etc. She gave me a symbolic 2 euro pocket money a few days in the week, how generous of her. You know, that's not even the best part yet ... because my dad had died and I was officially his child I got his pension but because I was not 18 y/o my mother got all the money and told me that only like 5 months before I turned 18. The pension was decent. Decent enough for me not to ask anyone for money anymore. Or start saving for university ... my mother spent it all until she decided to tell me she got the money since he had died. And for those few months I knew she could give me maybe 1/3rd of what she got. After I turned 18, I'd get it all then. Well, while she was trying to start a new family, her 17 y/o daughter was fucking a pedo. You gotta understand about me, when I was 17, I did not look like a young adult, I still looked pretty much like a child. I still got the chubby cheeks, I was very slender, barely any womanly features, natural hair. A dream for a guy like that. And the worst part is, I was completely under his spell. I thought finally I'm getting the life I thought I deserved. I saw so many countries and places I only ever dreamed of seeing as a poor Eastern European girl. I finally got that fatherly figure in my life who takes care of me. All of his friends were happy for him to be with such a young and cute girl. I finished high-school while planning going to universities where he lived. I got totally put in a trap where the only person important in my life was him. I worked very hard to arrange everything and to apply for those universities while my best friend, who I mentioned at the start, started ditching school and she partied and started working cause she was also not that well off and I spent my last year of high school basically all alone and later she blamed me for ditching her while I was living with him across Europe. I got into the university. He bought us a place to live between the city of my uni and his work. It was still 2h going in 1 direction 3-4 times a week. I was isolated from my course mates in university. I did not live with them. My only close friend there was him. Besides my bff who barely finished high-school I had no close friends at school. I had tops 2-4 other friends besides her. Rest of my year called me a weird lesbian for some reason. One guy even asked my BFF why I was so weird. I never understood why I was thought of as weird at school. Because I did not have rich/well off parents? Because I did not have the perfect smile? Because I was a bit introverted? I realise now as I am getting older maybe I am on the autism spectre and I do have some problems with maintaining eye-contact but I am not that far on the spectrum I'd say to be impaired really in my communication. Bu that is a side note to this all. I just got perceived as weird for some unexplained reasons. After being in a relationship with him ... a lot of bad stuff emerged. He was a compulsive liar. He chatted with his exes, with other girls he met online all over East-Europe. I found e-mails he sent to other women being signed "Love, forever yours" and said that's how he talks to his friends. The jewellery he got me at the start? He stole it from his mothers (or asked, I'm not sure what was right). He gaslit me to a point where I was paranoid I started snooping every single thing he owned. I checked his amex bills if he was not seeing other women, I saw he was registered in different dating apps. And the crown to this all is: A TEENAGE BOY HE TRAINED IN FOOTBALL ACCUSED HIM OF ASKING FOR SEXUAL FAVOURS IN EXCHANGE OF GOODS. It ruined his reputation, he got raided by the police, his family did not trust him anymore, he got shunned. And I stuck to him 100%, that's how blind I was. Of course I had my questions yet I trusted him so much cause I did not have anyone else. He got a court case, he got public service as a punishment cause they found a weird deleted pic on his computer (that is what he said to me). Furthermore, my friend told me he was chatting with her and her friends behind my back and told them to not tell me... And that was right before I had to move in with him to go to my university. I did it anyway. I did not finish the year in uni. I was burned out from the 4h spending every day in public transport, dealing with his emotional abuse and trying to do all of my uni work which was completely overwhelming. We even got into couples therapy cause I did not know how to trust him anymore. The therapist told me: D, you know what to do by now. And I did. I had to go back home.
That summer we drove back home. I drove back home to a mother who had sold the apartment that was supposed to be mine when i was 18 cause my dad who raised me bought it for my mother and later to be left for me. I had nothing. Just a room in my step-dads family house. He was not my family. However, my mother wanted me to feel that, I did not. I could not. I was too old for that. He knew we did not drive here just for a vacation. He knew that when he drove back alone and I did not come with him to spend more time back home, I would not return later. After 3 weeks of being home without him. I left him. I started to work as a barista. Finally, making some friends, starting new relationships. Doing what I should have been doing. Started to live with my BFF cause I could not stand my mother. I could not stand looking at her treating my brother like he deserved everything he wanted. I am still sick of looking how she coddles him and I am constantly reminded how she could have been like that with me but she just did not see me as a child that needs love from her.
For now, thank you for reading. I feel I lost my point a little. I just really really wanted to share something to the world from my life cause I sit here every day alone smoking too much weed and trying to cope. I do not know if that works anymore. I feel lost & aimless. If you have any questions about me and my life I'll gladly answer them. And I am sorry for the ramble but there is so much I still did not write here. Maybe one day my life will make an interesting book.

2023.03.21 11:53 Acid_Bath_95 Hi all, I’m fucked.
I’ve been diagnosed with anxiety and chronic depression when I was 15, but I’ve been struggling with anxiety and Panic attacks since I was 9! Now, (f 27) I reached the low bottom of my life and there is nothing more I can do to make things better. I have a shitty job, an awful boss who hates me and I did not complete my graduation because I didn’t finish the TCC (conclusion of the course thesis). I lost many years in an amazing graduation (one of the best Universities of my Country) but I have no strength to finish this circle and I’ve been panicking with the idea of loosing those years but, by the other hand, I have not a single motivation to conclude this. Therefore, I can not move to a better job. I can not afford better things. I have an amazing boyfriend who supports me. He got a job in Europe and I moved with him for this new country that I hate. I hate the weather, I hate the rain, I hate the fact that there is no sun at all. And it only made my depression to get worse and worse. Even my boyfriend, who’s always been so supportive, is now getting tired of my bullshit. He thinks that he is the only one that is actually worried about my graduation- but I’ve been having panic attacks for years because of this. And I CANT talk to him about it because it makes me sick to my stomach. I feel ashamed that I let it happen to me. I feel ashamed that I date a guy who is intelligent and has everything figured out in his life. He has a great job, great feedbacks, receives a great salary. And I should be growing with him - but I have the impression that I’m just holding him back. For example: if I had completed my graduation I would have a better job by now, and we could have a better life. I think it’s a matter of time until he snaps out of this bullshit that I dragged him into. I feel paralyzed. I feel disgusted by myself. I feel ashamed and I can’t even cry. I’m on medication (for years) that works because I haven’t tried to kill myself (even though it seems the more logical thing to do) but maybe those medication also stops me from getting any emotions (?). I have no will to conclude my stuff, I haven’t felt happiness in MONTHS. I miss my family so much, but I’m a lazy piece of shit who doesn’t even CALL them because I’m afraid it will make me suffer more. I’ve tried therapy but it didn’t help. My therapist just told me things that I already now - like: “you should finish your graduation”. Yes, of course, but HOW? How do I swallow all this shame of being the last one in my class to finish? How do I find the strength to develop a thesis? How? I’m just feeling worse and having nightmares every single day. And my boyfriend is mad at me because I received an email from my university saying that I can loose my graduation. I completely understand his anger. I’m angry at myself too.
Sorry for this. And English is not my first language. If you have any advice or story to share, feel free. Thank you.

2023.03.21 11:52 Eifand The Mechanical Clock and the Gutenberg Press (both of which were invented by Catholics only for it to be usurped and used for purposes other then what it was originally intended for) or why technology is NOT neutral or "merely a tool". Catholics should be techno-pessimists or even Neo-Luddites.
So I notice that many Catholics hold the instrumentalist view of technology which views technology as merely a neutral tool without considering its broader spiritual, social, cultural, and political impacts as well as how it exerts control over its users often without their conscious knowledge. This is a huge mistake. The uses made of technology is pre-determined by the structure of the technology itself. Once a technology is admitted, it plays out its hand and will do what is in its inherent design to do. New technology always usurps or disrupts the old, it always creates winners and losers.
Furthermore, the inventor of any technology always loses control of its usage and is rarely able to predict the direction in which it will take humanity. Two primary examples are The Mechanical Clock & the Gutenberg Press:
- The Mechanical Clock: "Who would have imagined, for example, whose interests and what world-view would be ultimately advanced by the invention of the mechanical clock? The clock had its origin in the Benedictine monasteries of the twelfth and thirteenth centuries. The impetus behind the invention was to provide a more or less precise regularity to the routines of the monasteries, which required, among other things, seven periods of devotion during the course of the day. The bells of the monastery were to be rung to signal the canonical hours; the mechanical clock was the technology that could provide precision to these rituals of devotion. And indeed it did. But what the monks did not foresee was that the clock is a means not merely of keeping track of the hours but also of synchronizing and controlling the actions of men. And thus, by the middle of the fourteenth century, the clock had moved outside the walls of the monastery, and brought a new and precise regularity to the life of the workman and the merchant. The mechanical clock," as Lewis Mumford wrote, "made possible the idea of regular production, regular working hours and a standardized product." In short, without the clock, capitalism would have been quite impossible.4 The paradox, the surprise, and the wonder are that the clock was invented by men who wanted to devote themselves more rigorously to God; it ended as the technology of greatest use to men who wished to devote themselves to the accumulation of money. In the eternal struggle between God and Mammon, the clock quite unpredictably favored the latter." - Technopoly: The Surrender of Culture to Technology by Neil Postman
- The Gutenberg Press: "Gutenberg, for example, was by all accounts a devout Catholic who would have been horrified to hear that accursed heretic Luther describe printing as "God's highest act of grace, whereby the business of the Gospel is driven forward." Luther understood, as Gutenberg did not, that the mass-produced book, by placing the Word of God on every kitchen table, makes each Christian his own theologian—one might even say his own priest, or, better, from Luther's point of view, his own pope. In the struggle between unity and diversity of religious belief, the press favored the latter, and we can assume that this possibility never occurred to Gutenberg." - Technopoly: The Surrender of Culture to Technology by Neil Postman
Man's fallen nature means that his virtue will always be outstripped by his technical capabilities. Man's virtue and self-restraint will always be outpaced by technological progress which is a manifestation of his desire for control, for order, for self sufficiency and immortality apart from God. How can we be so sure that iPhones are a sign of a dawning Utopia? They could just as easily be a harbinger of Doom, of a new everlasting Dark Age.
Furthermore, Technology is at the center of the atheistic secularists/humanistic religion as a means to achieve salvation apart from God, to achieve a material utopia, Heaven on Earth. It is known as transhumanism.
For these reasons, I believe the Church and laity should take a techno-pessimistic stance.

2023.03.21 11:50 Rocketslsyer590 IDK what ec's to do
I'm a freshman in highschool and we are almost on term 4 in a couple of months this year will end. School ends at 4 and I get home at 5. I'm still trying to figure out what extracurriculars I should do because I don't know. I went to tennis tryouts the other day because I thought it was a fun sport but everyone was so competitive and really good. There was no way I was getting on the team. I thought about doing theatre but I'm not that loud and I have stage fright. So I'm only in one club right now and I might quit because it's just too boring. I am now lost I have no idea what extracurriculars to do during the school year. I'm not sure if summer camps and summer jobs count as activities for the colleges. Plus the only real hobby I have is making random stuff with my coding knowledge like games and bots, and playing video games with friends. What should I do the year is closing soon and I know 9th grade is all about the foundation. Also I'm a very good student I have all straight A's a few A-'s and 1 B.

2023.03.21 11:49 Bartoni17 One wild ride of an interview with Polish NT goalkeeper Łukasz Skorupski from Bologna. He jokingly asked prime minister for 10 million PLN bonus and he accepted it.
Recently Łukasz Olkowicz from Przegląd Sportowy made an interview with Łukasz Skorupski. Here's original: https://przegladsportowy.onet.pl/pilka-nozna/reprezentacja-polski/wszystko-wyplynelo-tak-sie-klocilismy-o-premie-ze-nie-gadalismy-z-pewnymi-zawodnikami/ys6v8bj
And here’s translation:
Łukasz Olkowicz: You know what interests people.
Lukasz Skorupski: Bonus?
Bonus. Didn't it occur to you that people would be furious when they found out about it?
Łukasz Skorupski: We knew. We were talking to each other and we knew they could be fucking furious.
And that didn't stop you?
Łukasz Skorupski: It wasn't our idea. The prime minister promised a bonus. In words, nothing on paper.
But you agreed.
Łukasz Skorupski: There was a chat between us: We'll get it - nice. We'll not get it? We didn't go crazy about it. You understand? The bonus was too much because it was too big.
You negotiated part of it yourself. At dinner with the prime minister, you got ten million more.
Łukasz Skorupski: I was talking about something, but it was for funnies. And the prime minister accepted it. In my opinion, at such tournament, we should not talk about the bonus at all, everything should be settled on paper before the World Cup. There was little we could do. They told us about it just before leaving to Qatar, we were goiing to the airport right away. Normally, we would have arranged this beforehand.
When did you start talking about the bonus in Qatar?
Łukasz Skorupski: After promotion from the group. Some things journalists wrote were true, some things not. Arguments started between us, talks with the coach. We've all been so excited in the team, I'll be honest: bonus, bonus, when is the bonus?
And you know what's best?
That you didn't get it?
Łukasz Skorupski: No, that the team had a great atmosphere at the tournament. For example, we would come back from training and sing songs. We laughed that we are like Brazil. Because this Brazil was having fun after each training on drums, and we would come back and sing songs from the 90s, 2000s. We had our loudspeaker in the back, everyone chose, and then the rest picked up. Great stuff. Same music at the gym. It was fucking awesome, really. After the games we went out for dinner, we took care of the atmosphere. We were a good group, we were close. The atmosphere was fantastic and then it all went downhill.
Money ruined it. You had an argument over the distribution of the bonus.
Łukasz Skorupski: We are promoted fromt the group and instead of being happy, we suddenly started arguing about this bonus. You'll have so much, others so much. But we were arguing so much that we didn't talk to certain players. And the day before we sang together. The match against France was approaching. "Lewy" says, the team council: "Gentlemen, let's make a deal. We can't think about the bonus, only about the match." We agreed not to talk about this bonus anymore. With all due respect to money, but no one on the team lacks it. Calm came back, we played the game.
The best in the tournament.
Łukasz Skorupski: And then the story began in the newspapers.
Did you follow this?
Łukasz Skorupski: I read something, but you know more... They promised us an exaggerated bonus, but instead of being happy that we were promoted from the group, they started to shit on us.
You have exposed yourself. Wouldn't you be better off if you said, "We got lost in this, we lost our heads for a moment"? You said yourself the bonus was exaggerated.
Łukasz Skorupski: The media live off such information.
The media mainly shot at Czesław Michniewicz (NT coach) because of the bonus.
Łukasz Skorupski: I'll tell you that I felt a bit sorry for him. I had a good relationship with him.
Why didn't you answer?
Łukasz Skorupski: To whom?
To journalists. In his defense, if you wanted him to stay.
Łukasz Skorupski: We have agreed internally that we do not talk about it with the media. I guess "Lewy" later gave an interview about it, right?
And Grzegorz Krychowiak.
Łukasz Skorupski: Later, when we got along and the match against France was over, we sat down for dinner, drank some wine and everyone got over it. Has the tension released?
Łukasz Skorupski: We didn't talk about the bonus anymore. A lot of people left immediately after the game. But let me tell you in general - the atmosphere was great. It was beautiful in that respect. Beautifully.
Have you heard discussions from Poland about the style of the national team's play? That people have doubts?
Łukasz Skorupski: We sometimes talked among ourselves that the style was average.
The team was successful, but people turned up their noses. Did you understand the criticism? Objections from fans and journalists?
Łukasz Skorupski: We understood, but we kept telling ourselves that the result is the most important thing. And the results were good?
Łukasz Skorupski: The game wasn't beautiful, everyone said it was ugly, but it delivered results. Why are you looking at me like that? We advanced from the group? We advanced.
Did you like this game?
Łukasz Skorupski: Damn... I don't want to criticize Czesio like that either. The coach sets the tactics. He wanted us to play that way, so we did what he told us.
Did you believe in this tactic?
Lukasz Skorupski: What? It woked. We advanced from the group. At the club you play quite differently, more football. On the other hand, I understand Czesio a little. When was he supposed to train it? Like in the World Cup, we played every three days.
Others played differently.
Łukasz Skorupski: Fuck, who were we playing with? With Argentina. They are the best players in the world, they set their own tactics.
And with Mexico?
Łukasz Skorupski: And what, did Mexico play well with the ball? Better than us?
You and they played not to lose. There wasn't too much risk.
Łukasz Skorupski: After all, we wanted to win. If we had scored a penalty, we would have won. What... We played so poorly?
The match against Mexico was considered the worst at the World Cup. Skorup, teeth hurt.
Lukasz Skorupski: Really? I do not know what I can say. But what, in total we drew 0-0. Should I criticize the coach now?
No, just don't get off topic. Tell me how did you react?
Łukasz Skorupski: We were aware that the fans were attacking us. On the other hand, such a tournament is the biggest in life, you don't want to spoil anything. And you can't go wrong. You understand? One mistake and it's over. You know you can't lose the first game. You play tournaments differently than you play qualifying. We wanted to leave this group, for us it was a success, wasn't it? When was such a success last time?
36 years ago.
Łukasz Skorupski: And why is it not talked about at all? There was talk about the bonus and style, and the fact that Poland went to the World Cup and left the group after 36 years and there was silence. Did we play badly against France?
Lukasz Skorupski: You see. We lost, but individually we were blown away by players who are the best in the world. Why do you think we played like that in Qatar?
Because that's what the coach chose. I think he thought the result would cover everything. It did not cover. The first such a long discussion about style has begun in Poland, in which both sides have arguments.
Łukasz Skorupski: Exactly, everyone has their own opinion. I'm interested in winning matches, points. I'm out for the rest. For me, the most important thing is the result.
You don't care about style?
Lukasz Skorupski: No. I don't care when someone says that the national team or Bologna play badly. There are three points? There Are. Thank you. Who will remember in ten years how we played. They will remember our results.
Or that in the match against Argentina you ran to survive and lose as little as possible.
Łukasz Skorupski: It was our match for everything. It is known that this Argentina eats us with talent, right? We were there more with such working our assess off, we chose the simpliest football. We were tried to stay in the tournament. We couldn't risk anything. Nothing. That's the truth.
But then it goes out into the world that one of you ran around asking them not to shoot again.
Łukasz Skorupski: But is it true?
You tell me.
Łukasz Skorupski: I don't know if anyone asked for it. Any Argentinian could say that. Honestly, I haven't heard anything like that.
You are the goalkeeper. Don't you think outfield players want to have some fun with the ball so it doesn't fly over their heads?
Lukasz Skorupski: Points. Result. That's the most important thing for me.
Maybe you don't get tired, but such Piotr Zieliński for sure.
Lukasz Skorupski: Ha, ha. Well, I think he was struggling in Qatar. He played somewhere on the right or left side. We used "Zielu" wrong, and he has such skills.
What is the problem?
Łukasz Skorupski: See how he plays for Napoli. You pass him the ball, he has three players on his back and he won't lose it.
Why can't this be applied to the national team? Not only with Michniewicz, it was there before.
Lukasz Skorupski: I don't know. I think the defenders and the goalkeeper also have to play well.
We don't have players so weak to play so badly.
Łukasz Skorupski: Well, no, I think the same. It'll be all right.
Lukasz Skorupski: I don't know him. I mean I know him as a coach, but I don't know what the style will be.
He said defense is the most important thing.
Łukasz Skorupski: Do you know what Allegri was saying? You know what Chiellini and Bonucci were talking about? That the Italian championship is won by those who concede the fewest goals.
In the national team, you got in touch with Jacek Góralski. You have a similar past.
Łukasz Skorupski: Maybe he has even worse.
Lukasz Skorupski: Oh Jesus. We talked about it. He told me a lot, had a few actions.
Did you like each other right away?
Lukasz Skorupski: Right away. "Góral" is direct. Fucking great dude.
Dude, buddy or friend?
Lukasz Skorupski: A friend. From the national team he and "Zielu". The best.
But with Piotr Zieliński, you are fire and water.
Łukasz Skorupski: We get along. He is also so…
Łukasz Skorupski: Not as much of a psycho as me, but a similar mentality.
What do you mean?
Łukasz Skorupski: Also such a fox, he had some actions when he was young.
I've seen his posts on the internet.
Lukasz Skorupski: Not that. Some fights, no fights. "Zielu" is fucking great. First of all, helpful, if you need something, it's right away. You know, he plays for Napoli, the Champions League and doesn't try to be a star at all.
In the movie "Transsiberian" one of the characters utters the phrase: "Do not kill my demons, because the angels will die too." What about your demons today?
Łukasz Skorupski: Sometimes they are… But I hide it well. In Italy they don't even know I'm like that.
Are you or have you been?
Lukasz Skorupski: I was. I don't want to go back to that life at all.
Do you control your demons?
Lukasz Skorupski: I control. I am 31 years old, I have a child, a wife. I play football professionally, for ten years in Serie A. I earn good money, damn. You know how it is. I can't be stupid anymore.
Do you think you're securing the future right now? Not only yours.
Łukasz Skorupski: I'll make a living from it, so I have to make the most of it. I have to. I can't play the clown, risk to go out or something. I'll tell you, I don't even want to anymore. See how cold it is in Bologna today.
Łukasz Skorupski: In such weather, when I was 20, I would put on a T-shirt, a leather jacket over it and go to the city.
Now you're constantly complaining that you're cold.
Łukasz Skorupski: You don't even want to leave the house. Do you understand how it all changes?
You said yourself you'd rather invite your friends over to your house than spend the night at a party.
Łukasz Skorupski: The family is there, the kid is here. Everything worked out well. And I really prefer the way we sat down yesterday - we talked, watched the match, drank a glass of wine. Why the fuck would I go somewhere. Everyone knows each other in Bologna, right.
I think even if they didn't know you, you wouldn't go out.
Łukasz Skorupski: Well, I don't want to anymore. I guess it's age, huh?
I already told you. We are getting older.
Łukasz Skorupski: When I think about what I did in Górnik… Parties until eight in the morning, and training at nine. The body has changed too. If I did that now, I'd be walking backwards for three days. No discos at all. I will go out with my wife to a restaurant for dinner, sit, talk and go home. Where should I go? Of course, I can afford more during the holidays, then you can make something.
I like the custom in Italian teams that you and your teammates go out for dinner every week.
Łukasz Skorupski: They have, We have such a custom in Italy.
In Empoli you went out on Wednesdays.
Łukasz Skorupski: And today Stefan Posch was punished for being late for training. We were already training and he came in after ten minutes. The day before we came back late from the match, he couldn't sleep, and in the morning he overslept. The punishment was to buy dinner for everyone. He paid today. It might have cost him a bit.
At least the team is connecting.
Lukasz Skorupski: Yes, yes. There's a punishment or something and a supper.
Did you pay fines in Bologna?
Łukasz Skorupski: It wasn't a punishment, but after signing a new contract with Bologna, I bought dinner for the whole team. I'm not getting fines now. I'm not late, never happened to me. Sorry, I came too late at Nawałka's (former Polish NT coach and Skorupski's coach in Górnik) once.
In Górnik or in the national team?
Łukasz Skorupski: In Górnik. Imagine that we went to a party after practically every game. Once we lost to Polonia Warszawa 0:4. I don't know if you remember this game.
Łukasz Skorupski: We lost and I say: "Fuck it, I'm not going anywhere". I didn't go and… I overslept. Dropping in for briefing, man... 10,000 fine from the coach.
He probably thought about Katowice at night.
Łukasz Skorupski: I didn't even say anything to him, I didn't explain myself. He wouldn't have believed it anyway. And that's the only time I haven't gone anywhere and I've missed my check-in. Jesus. That's how it stuck in my head that I've been vigilant ever since. Coach Nawałka used to look deep into your eyes. He greeted us, passed his hand and approached within five centimeters. Do you know why?
Did he want to emphasize his sincerity?
Łukasz Skorupski: He was getting closer like this, give me your hand, the left one, because my right one hurts. He brought his nose close to your face and sniffed. He knew some people were drinking.
Łukasz Skorupski: Well, I promise you.
I was told by the players of Świt Krzeszowice, the first club where Nawałka started as a coach, how he checked them to see if they had drunk anything. During the camps he visited them in their rooms. "What's up gentlemen?" How do you feel? - He was asking. "All right, coach," they replied. - Oh, I found some lint - he picked up a crumb from the carpet and carried it to the bin. He looked for beer caps.
Lukasz Skorupski: You see. With us, he would look at you and say, "Okay? Are you okay? Are you ready?" He knew that when there was a match, there could also be a party. He is sly. He wanted to introduce professionalism to Górnik. Because in order to achieve something with the team he had, he had to do it.
If you hadn't met Nawałka, would we be talking in Italy now?
Lukasz Skorupski: I don't think so. I'm afraid that I would not play in Italy and I would stay in Poland and play in Ekstraklasa. I had talent, but without the discipline and working us to the ground he unleashed in me, I wouldn't have excelled.
The perfect coach at that moment for someone as defiant as you?
Łukasz Skorupski: I was tough, I had it in me, because it's family with us. We don't cry, we don't feel sorry for ourselves. Something really serious had to happen to go to the doctor. If you cut something, it's no big deal. For them, it was such a shame to cry at the doctor's office because something hurt. We grit our teeth and say hello. That's my whole family. What, I also did not go to coach Nawałka with such trifles. It was so with him that if there was a foul in training and someone was lying down, he would approach with a clear message: "You get up or it's time to leave training". Really. He was still asking. "What, an ambulance?! An ambulance?! Are we calling an ambulance or are you getting up?" And suddenly everyone got up. "And yet it doesn't hurt," he triumphed.
Did he end pretending?
Łukasz Skorupski: Everyone in the team finished. You know, when there was a perfidious tackle, then the coach would get angry and admonish: "Too much." But some kind of slide, a sharp entry, without crying. And man, at one point, no one cried anymore. Everyone got up immediately and developed a character on it. We were fucking going and we rode this rhythm. We walked like soldiers. I really appreciate it. Thiago Motta in Bologna also has such a character. It's like, "Something hurts? Okay, then get off the field." He doesn't care if it's me or someone else. For him, the most important thing is who works in training.
Once I talked to the referees, they said that Górnik was the easiest to ref. Because the players did not pretend, they did not argue with the referees. There was a ban from the coach.
Łukasz Skorupski: The coach threatened that if we get a yellow card for talking, we will be punished immediately. I'll tell you he was right about that. He showed how important details and discipline are. He gave me my debut in Ekstraklasa in Wrocław with Śląsk together with Milik and Olkowski. I owe him a lot, he developed my character, he taught me discipline.
And hard work in training.
Łukasz Skorupski: He was famous for working hard.
Only four workouts a day.
Łukasz Skorupski: Just so you know that we really at the camps practiced three or four times a day. I remember the camp in Grodzisk Wielkopolski, where we started at six in the morning - oxygen, i.e. running. Honestly? I'll tell you, we complained, complained, and now I appreciate it. I'm in Italy and I'm not at all scared of their work here.
Thanks to working with Nawałka, was it easier for you to find yourself in Serie A?
Łukasz Skorupski: The approach I got to know thanks to him in Górnik, I met after coming to Italy. In my opinion, it has been abroad for a long time, but not yet in Poland at that time.
You said that you and Nawałka keep in touch and write text messages.
Łukasz Skorupski: Sometimes the coach will talk after the match. At the World Cup, he wrote to me in his style: "Congratulations, we keep fighting." When I defended against the Netherlands or Chile, he texted me that it was a good match.
You sent back longer responses to show him you'd changed. No "Thank you", but a few lines.
Łukasz Skorupski: I have to let him know that this is another Łukasz Skorupski. Because you know, I changed with him, I was a bit of a boor. I grew up with Górnik fans, we were all the same in Zaborze.
Were you rude?
Łukasz Skorupski: You know that, well... When I met Nawałka in Górnik, man, he also started teaching me such kindnesses. "Thank you, please, why don't you talk like that?" he pointed out. And so to all players, not just me. Thank the lady at the laundry. Thank the lady in the kitchen.
"Good morning" must be said.
Łukasz Skorupski: I didn't always say before. I will remember coach Nawałka well. In national team we talk about him a lot. And what are you talking about?
Łukasz Skorupski: That "Nawala" was fucking awesome. Everyone knows that we worked hard and everything was arranged like in the army. But man... There was no money in Górnik, but he was able to arrange everything in such a way, to wind up the president of Zabrze that she paid us salaries every month. Because earlier in Górnik they paid once every six months. The coach came and we came to him to help with these payouts. He met with the president and they started paying monthly. We didn't have rarities, but some fruits appeared after training.
The fields had to be even.
Łukasz Skorupski: Bartek Spałek, our masseur, I remember that he took creatine, some other supplements, conditioners. Everything was coming in.
Was it Nawałka who introduced it?
Lukasz Skorupski: Yes! Earlier, come on, and he introduced such a greater professionalism - breakfasts in the club, dinners in the club. He was trying to put it all together. Although I remember, honestly, that sometimes we complained about it.
You called him Fidel.
Łukasz Skorupski: It was like that, we were exercising at the gym. He was looking one way and you did eight reps instead of ten. Right away he would be angry with you: "How much have you done?! Eight! Two more!". I don't know how he saw it, but he didn't miss a thing man, he saw it all. At one point, the team thought, "Well, there's no resisting and there's a ride. We're going this way." We didn't have any outstanding players, and we were standing well in the table, even in sixth place.
And many got promoted: you, Paweł Olkowski, Arek Milik.
Łukasz Skorupski: Each of us has gone abroad. It was so that when Nawałka started, I did not believe in such things at all. He brought Remek Rzepka to the club, I think he studied in America. And he introduced what the entire Ekstraklasa is doing now. And yet we are talking about what happened ten years ago in Poland. They were the first to introduce rollovers.
How did you react?
Łukasz Skorupski: I did it, but with the thought - what the fuck is this? Shall I roll some muscles? Some rubber, extra work? Give me the ball and the games. And they began to notice that motor skills are improving, that injuries are prevented. In Górnik, everyone had to be at the gym half an hour before training.
And you are doing it in Bologna now.
Łukasz Skorupski: It's normal abroad. In Poland, it came with coach Nawałka. You know how it was in Ekstraklasa. Earlier, probably with coach Wieczorek... Although I don't remember. Okay, never mind. I was already playing in the first team, and I would arrive at the club at 10:50. Five minutes to get changed and at 11 I left for training. End of training, bath and departure.
This would not work for Nawałka.
Łukasz Skorupski: You had to be in his locker room 45 minutes before training. Let me tell you, I really appreciate it now. The best coach I had in Poland. I always talked when I was playing for Górnik that coach Nawałka should join the national team. He's gonna make all these rules, damn it. And you see - he did some result.
Quarterfinals of the European Championship.
Łukasz Skorupski: Damn, well... But let me tell you that at the national team it was a bit different. Lighter.
At the first team training camp in Grodzisk Wielkopolski there was also a similar drill, only the players told him to let it go.
Łukasz Skorupski: I wasn't there yet. He was so much more laid back after that. And you can't go like that during training sessions with the national team, because you play two matches a week. You come prepared from the club, you work on tactics without great strength and so on, because the match is coming soon. This is what it looks like in the national team. More could be done when it was EURO, where we had two weeks of preparation. Now at the World Cup, we didn't live in training either. All the time tactics and matches. But, you know, you've been in form because you're coming mid-season.
I always remember Coach Nawałka well. I don't know how he did it, because there was poverty in Górnik, but at some point we had everything I said - nutrients, some fruit after training. We were paid our salaries every month. We went to Zakopane for the camp. Oh Jesus. We stayed in one of the best hotels. And what the fuck, how much we ran. But let me tell you - I have respect for the fact that he developed such a character for me.
A lot of coaches could kick you out of the club for "Lorneta and Medusa", where you fought with other customers and trashed the place.
Łukasz Skorupski: Well fuck, that's why I'm telling you. He gave me a second chance, he did a great job. After it happened, I had a meeting with him at the club. I entered the coach room without knocking. I sat down on the sofa right away, I remember that. The coach looked at me strangely: "What are you doing?! Get up, leave and come back like a normal person." So I went out, this time I knocked. I sat down and told him everything how it was.
How did he react?
Łukasz Skorupski: Nice, because he said that he also did stupid things in his youth. It happens to young people, you know you have to go crazy. The most important thing for him was not to do it again. And I didn't repeat it. I didn't play in the first match after this action, but in the next round I was again in the lineup. I had a good season, my best in Ekstraklasa. Because you know, damn, I wanted to repay him a little.
Well, but he gave up on your brother.
Łukasz Skorupski: Not him, but club's board.
Michał was after a serious injury and trained as a guest with the first team of Górnik. He had a chance to stay.
Lukasz Skorupski: Exactly. He was injured, he did not have a contract with Górnik, but he could train with us. We just did this action in "Lorneta and Meduza" and they thanked him right away.
As the first.
Łukasz Skorupski: Earlier there was an idea to offer him a contract. I got a penalty, Olo Kwiek got a penalty, Adam Danch got a penalty.
How did the 20-year-old, promising player in Ekstraklasa felt arrested?
Łukasz Skorupski: Four of us were in arrest - me, Adam Danch, Olek Kwiek and my brother. Each in a different cell. And man, what's going on down there? You sit and sleep with a break for food.
Łukasz Skorupski: A piece of bread and tea in a metal mug. Jesus. The worst days of my life. I promise you. The worst three days of my life! I had everything ruffled, you're lying in the same clothes. Nor bathe, only pee somewhere next to people.
Who were you sitting with?
Łukasz Skorupski: With a guy who sold drugs to someone else who died. You understand?
With a dealer.
Lukasz Skorupski: Yes. Life is like that. I don't know how in Italy they will read it and ask: what the...? Even though it was ten years ago, write that it was ten years ago.
You had a black eye then.
Łukasz Skorupski: We sat in the same clothes and waited for them to take us out. We left after three days. We were pulled out by the late Krzysiu Maj with Bartek Laburda. Before that, there was also a sobering-up room. You go, you strip down to your panties and you sleep like that. Just so you know, because there are some psychos... They take their belts off, everything. You are lying on a mattress on the ground, and the worst thing is that there are twenty people in the room and there is no toilet.
How did Matilde react to all this when you told her what you were like?
Łukasz Skorupski: Well, she was in shock. But she also knows that I have changed. Also thanks to her. She appreciates that I was able to leave Zaborze and take care of myself, and you know what a difference it makes.
Łukasz Skorupski: Man, no... Compared to my life in Poland, it's a gulf. She appreciates that I was able to adapt to another. This in Italy. You know how they live here, you've seen it - coffee, cappuccino. Although there is also crime in Italy.
You, for example, were robbed in Bologna.
Łukasz Skorupski: Sometimes when I think about it, it still makes me furious. We lived on the ground floor in an apartment with a garden. I was playing at home against Napoli, Matilde left the house half an hour after kick-off. They had to watch her. After the match with my young and "Zielu" we still kicked the ball in the gym at the stadium. Leo knows his uncle, likes him. Everything's fine, we go home, and there's like a bomb went off. Everything is broken, lying on the ground. I felt fucking bad.
Matylda was in Zaborze?
Lukasz Skorupski: She was.
Did she like it?
Łukasz Skorupski: These were our beginnings, and you know how it is in a relationship - deeply in love, you won't say anything bad. Today, as she recalls that visit, she admits that she was shocked.
What shocked her the most?
Łukasz Skorupski: That Silesia is still so gray. And she's from Sardinia. For her, the strangest thing was that every block in Zaborze is the same. Only the number changes. She shook her head: "All the blocks are the same. Only the hospitals are different, and there is no difference." And what, well, I took her to Auschwitz, I remember. She insisted on going there. For Italians, this is a moving story, they take the history of the concentration camps seriously. She wanted to see, so we went. Today, when Matilde is in Poland, we mainly visit my family in the countryside. We will also go there this June.
Łukasz Skorupski: To my mother. It's a village, 50 kilometers from Brodnica. It takes an hour and a half to get to Toruń. Lakes, we have a boat, fish, bonfires in the evenings. It's fucking great there. Matilde likes it too, she loves nature. Boy, we're walking somewhere in the fields, and she raves about the cows. She's in love with animals, right. Cows, chickens, it doesn't matter.
The whole family from mother and father - cousins, aunts - lives there. They all live 15 kilometers next to each other. One family from mom, the other from dad. Here is one village, here is another, and there was a disco between them. My parents met there. Later, my father went to Silesia to work in a mine, and my mother with him.
Your dad wasn't interested in football.
Łukasz Skorupski: He was from the countryside, he had nothing to do with football. He didn't play it at all. The old man was a boxer. You know, he trained himself and boxed himself.
Did he go to your games?
Lukasz Skorupski: No. Rarely. I don't blame him. I never wanted to be daddy's boy. When I was young, he used to come to a game.
And when have you already played in Ekstraklasa?
Łukasz Skorupski: I don't think he came to Ekstraklasa even once. My old man wasn't a Górnik. He watched on TV.
When I started training in Zaborze when I was young, I jumped over the fence and was already on the pitch. Nobody had to see me off. When I was ten years old, times were different, I would get on a tram and drive an hour to training. Two transfers from Zaborze and you had to walk there too.
You were ten years old and you were already driving alone?
Łukasz Skorupski: We traveled from Zaborze in two or three. We had a training group where parents of other coaches licked ass, and I was always alone. I don't blame the old man for not coming. I know he worked hard and had to rest after the mine. Those who had more money, some business of their own, could come to their son whenever they wanted. They were sucking up to the coaches, giving gifts so that only the kid would play. I was the only one who didn't care about it. I was fucking great keeper in the youngsters and the coach loved me. His name is Jerzy Urban. Write it, write it, he will be happy. Sometimes we text each other. He treated me fairly even though I came without my parents and I didn't suck up to anyone. I was good and that was it, and he let me play. Other parents were furious: "Why doesn't my son play, I bought shirts for the team." The coach liked me so much that he would take me home after training and drink tea with the old ones.
Two years older brother, Michał, also played football.
Łukasz Skorupski: I think that as a goalkeeper I feel so good and agile because I had a different childhood. I would go outside with the boys and jump from tree to tree, doing some flips in the bushes. And train to add to that. Mom would let us out at nine o'clock in the morning, we would come back at 11 pm, when she was screaming from the window: "Come home!". That's how I grew up, huh.
I would never trade my childhood for anything. I went crazy. Jesus, you went to the lake, no matter if the water was warm or cold. When I was young, I spent my summers in the countryside. We drove tractors, I went to work to pick strawberries or potatoes.
Did they pay well?
Łukasz Skorupski: Tenner in an hour. We earned about 50pln a day. In the evening we met at the fire station and played a match, and at the end a shop and ice cream. The next day the same. Oh, I slept in the barn too.
Łukasz Skorupski: Like in the countryside. It was a little different in the city. Although I played football everywhere - in the countryside and in the city.

2023.03.21 11:49 Round_Ebb7764 How much hairloss is normal after using product like hairspray
I know losing 50-100 hairs is normal on a normal day. But yesterday i used hairspray to keep my hair intact for a party. And when i went through my hair on the sink this morning to check (like i do once a week) i lost about 25 hairs. Then after showering about 10 more. This does seem like a lot of hair to lose no? If its not then good but i genuinely have no idea.
I have been to a derm in december for checkup of hairloss but i dont have MPB so im likely good on that part.
Also bonus question: i i were to develop MPB, i make pics of my hairline every month, should this be enough to spot it?

“Notwithstanding ye would not go up, but rebelled against the commandment of the Lord your God: And ye murmured in your tents, and said, Because the Lord hated us, he hath brought us forth out of the land of Egypt, to deliver us into the hand of the Amorites, to destroy us.” Deuteronomy 1:26-27 KJV
I thought this was a good set of verses from the Old Testament and we can apply all scripture to our life Old Testament, or New Testament obviously the old testament was to the Jews at the time, but God gives us the old testament for our knowledge and to help learn from Israel. So one way we can apply this to our life. It’s just because you’re facing trials or Temptations, or are going through something hard in life not to charge God, foolishly, and murmurs that God has forsaken us, or left us, or doesn’t know what he’s doing. Our job isn’t to question but it’s to trust God without faith it is impossible to please him.
I will take just a couple verses from the book of Job Chapter 39 as we know, Job faced a lot of problems, and he lost a lot in his life more so than most of us have, and ever will, and in the verses and chapters leading up to chapter 39 Job was questioning God of why he would allow these things and here was God’s response in the first couple versus of chapter 39 “Knowest thou the time when the wild goats of the rock bring forth? or canst thou mark when the hinds do calve? Canst thou number the months that they fulfil? or knowest thou the time when they bring forth?” Job 39:1-2 KJV
It’s funny because God doesn’t actually give him a specific reason why but what he does show Job is that a God is in control of everything and knows everything. Why should we therefore question what God is doing. See we may not understand why something is going on in our life now, but there’s always a plan and a purpose for it and God is just in holy and who are we to question what he does. Therefore trust God, and live by faith.

2023.03.21 11:48 daredevil1302 Software Developer trying to find a job in Montréal
I'm 27 years old from Croatia.
I will come to Montréal for 2 weeks in late May of this year. I did some research on getting employed here and there are multiple options (working visa, working holiday visa, etc.). In May, I will arrive with eTA (I will stay at my friend's place), but while being there, I would like to look for some job opportunities in IT (frontend dev specifically).
My question is, what's the best way to go about looking a job? Should I first apply for working holiday visa and then start my application process, or is it ok to look for interviews while only having the eTA (and then apply for visas when i get the offer) ? I got lost in all the info on the official Canada website.

2023.03.21 11:47 Round_Ebb7764 How much hairloss is normal after using product like hairspray
I know losing 50-100 hairs is normal on a normal day. But yesterday i used hairspray to keep my hair intact for a party. And when i went through my hair on the sink this morning to check (like i do once a week) i lost about 25 hairs. Then after showering about 10 more. This does seem like a lot of hair to lose no? If its not then good but i genuinely have no idea.
I have been to a derm in december for checkup of hairloss but i dont have MPB so im likely good on that part.
Also bonus question: i i were to develop MPB, i make pics of my hairline every month, should this be enough to spot it?

2023.03.21 11:46 monkeywithawrench13 We have to create a firewall between the UFC and for-entertainment promotions like the WWE
Anyone who's been following this sport since the days of UFC 100 knows how hard the struggle for legitimacy was for it. Back alley streetfights, to the early days of a BJJ blackbelt fighting a guy who outweighed him by 150 lbs.
They stopped that. They created weight classes, emulated the best aspect of boxing and gave it somewhat of a competitive architecture. It's not perfect, I'd even say it has some urgent flaws, but it was brought it.
Today MMA (and the UFC as the flag bearer) is recognised as the elite sport - NOT ENTERTAINMENT GIMMICK - that it is.
However, promotionally there are some problems that still stand out that I think of fixed would take it to a unprecedented level, and possibly even an Olympic Sport.
1) People (Uncle Chael & Co.) still use terms like 'heel' and 'baby face'. Fighters buy into that and come up with a shtick. It's unnecessary and devalues the basis of this sport which is Martial Arts. This would be unacceptable behaviour in any Martial Arts School/Gym. Why is it tolerated in this particular promotion ?
2) The making of fights based on personality and 'beef' has also got to go. Legitimise the ranking system, or create NCAA style bracketing. Bellator makes it work. OneFC makes it work. And yet the UFC still makes its biggest fight based on 'storylines'. So much so that they'll create 1,2 even 3 fight streaks between the same guys just for the storyline. Close fights like Figgy - Moreno, Izzy- Alex whatever, need to stop at one. You lost, it happens.
3) Cringe character shenanigans like Masvidal, Colby, Sean Strickland have to go too. It alienates most people, and appeals to a base this sport doesn't need. 'He sells PPVs' cannot be a justification for fight making. Non English speaking world class athletes shouldn't have to learn English and get a degree in marketing to be successful. All they should have to do is win.
4) Belts like BMF are a joke. If you have it for a new category - thats fine but then defend it. It's a belt. It has to be defending. Make the gimmick a moniker or whatever. Not a belt.
5) Cross promotional fights, like in boxing - have huge potential. If you unify the industry - it makes it very difficult for Sports Center to ignore a sport that has a fan base that in PPV purchase, participation and engagement outdoes most other sports including boxing.
6) Fixed fight schedules like any other sport. Fighters holding up divisions for any other reason than injury are slowing things down to a crawl, which only then can be sped up by theatrical gimmicks like 'personal grudge matches'
7) MMA journalists have to act like journalists. Ask about tactics, strategem, training camps, moments in the fight. Ask the fighter to break it down. Not the same constant nauseating carousel of 'How did it feel', 'React to this comment', 'What do you think'.
The NBA, NFL, FIFA all have some small element of that, but most of the discourse isn't beyond the strict parameters of the sport and performance.
Now, I know there are reasons His Tomato-ness won't all or any of that.
But I think if we draw a line saying, "We want to watch a sport, not an entertainment event" it will create an environment where the stuff above becomes logical and undeniable, despite Dana or whomever.

2023.03.21 11:43 baconatorsavorysmile Omori and Flowers
Just wamted to share some thoughts I had on Flowers in Omori :)
Basil’s talk about his garden in the Omori prologue and what each floweplant means to him sets up the core conflicts for the entire cast and I wanted to use this post to highlight that as well as one of Omori’s strongest aspects in my eyes, the concept of facing yourself, the good and the bad.
Spoilers for the whole game so please be aware! A major aspect of Omori and it's powerful message is in experiencing the game yourself so even if you don't care about spoilers please give playing the game yourself another shot!
“These are sunflowers. They're called that because they always face towards the sun. That's how I want to be like... someone who always sees the bright side of things.”
Basil loves his friends and always wants to see the best in them. In Headspace this gets demonstrated with Boss, where Basil takes note of how gentle Boss was while fighting the party. Even in his Photo Album both in Headspace and the Real World Basil writes about the positives in each photo. The real Basil we see is someone who can barely face the sun like he once hoped to. After playing a role in Mari’s faked suicide, Basil has to come to terms with the bad side of people, but he doesn’t do that. Somewhat Similar to Sunny, Basil creates his own Something. He can place the blame for Mari’s death on Something instead of Sunny, because Sunny would never do something like that to the sister he loves so much right? Sunny would never abandon his best friend Basil for 4 years and just up and leave him right? He even blames his own actions on Something at times, like when he scribbled on the pictures in his Photo Album and when he attacked Sunny in an attempt to save him from Something. Basil has spent so much time blaming Something, he has totally drowned himself in this negativity, bottling up the truth of the matter and really only facing the shadows the bright side of his friends cast. Sunny’s smile at Basil in the secret ending shows me that Basil, as well as Sunny, has come to accept what happened and that Something never truly existed.
“These flowers are called lily of the valley. It's said that they're able to ward off evil spirits and help people see a brighter future... I guess that's why they remind me of MARI. I can always count on her to help me stay positive.”
This description fits Mari’s role in Headspace perfectly. Seeing her and her picnic is always a sign that you can finally take a rest, save and heal your party, and have a nice picnic with your friends and discuss the current events of the game. Whenever you see Mari you know you’re headed in the right direction, and with her help you can take on any challenge the game throws at you. Although Mari is also represented throughout the game as Something, a haunting ghostly figure that takes on many forms and haunts Sunny. Something is literally something Sunny can’t quite overcome, and in many cases something he fears and runs away from. This dichotomy in how Sunny perceives Mari comes to a head in Black Space and One Day Left with multiple depictions of Mari/Something show us these conflicting ideas. A couple key examples being the one room where Something joins your party, following behind Sunny and every few seconds stopping to say “Sunny, I Love You,” as well as the reveal by the tree that Something is actually the haunting vision of Mari right after they staged her suicide, one eye shining through her hair, seemingly staring at Sunny and Basil. This idea of Mari in Headspace being a simultaneous push and pull force to and from the truth, we get a really realistic depiction of the contradictory nature of the heart, how it wants to love but fears the sadness and anger that can come with it. The real Mari also had these contrasting sides. She was always caring for Sunny and showing him and the whole friend group affection, but she was always a perfectionist. She was very critical of how she did things and sometimes that attitude would slip out, like while they made flower crowns and especially when Sunny and Mari’s recital was coming up. While Mari in the real world doesn’t really get a chance to accept her own flaws, she does play into Sunny’s own conclusion very well. Sunny gets to finally put all the memories together of who Mari really was, and can now let that real memory of her live on in his heart for the rest of his days. Those memories may be painful at times, but they’re also loving memories as well that should be cherished.
“Roses come in many different colors and have their own unique meanings. Pink roses symbolize admiration... Orange roses symbolize passion... Yellow roses symbolize friendship... and the list goes on. HERO doesn't remind me of any rose in particular. I think HERO is like all roses, because he's versatile and universally loved.”
Hero was always a jack of all trades, and this is shown in Headspace through his tag ability, being able to charm anyone to help progress through areas. He’s the Big Brother of the group, someone to lean on and look up to since he’s always got an answer. He even loves to cook, making him a perfect healer in this RPG world where food restores Hearts and Juice. In the real world Hero has buckled down and decided to become a Doctor because his parents want him to and since it’s a very financially fruitful career. It even fits his name, Hero, being someone who saves people. Hero’s real dream was being a cook though, it’s what he loved doing. His name even has an interesting double meaning since we learn that he was named, or at least nicknamed Hero after the Hero sandwich as Gino’s. In one of the memory sequences in the final stretch of the game, Hero asks Sunny if he should be a Cook or a Doctor, and I believe this question is something Hero still thinks about to this day. We don’t get any real closure to where he ends up, but learning about the truth of Mari’s death at the end always has the possibility of helping Hero come to terms with his grief and finally start cooking again.
“These are a type of flower called the gladiolus, also known as the "sword flower". As you might guess, they represent strength of character. Someone who is honest, with strong moral values... Someone who stands by their convictions… The gladiolus reminds me of AUBREY, because she's always true to herself.”
Aubrey is always pretty stubborn in Headspace, but also really honest with her feelings, getting mad, sad, or happy and not shying away from those feelings. She’s a strong person, and that’s why her tag ability is being able to break large objects. Mari’s death and how it created distance between her and her friends really made Aubrey feel alone and isolated, and that gets even further reinforced by her Dad leaving some time after the Mari incident. She feels abandoned by everyone she ever loved, and starts to become fairly rebellious. She dyes her hair pink, something her dad would never let her do, and she forms a pseudo-biker gang with local neighborhood kids. The way she treats Basil after trying to reach out to him really shows the shift in her mentality. She doesn;t confront Basil for scribbling all over his own Photo Album, but steals it away and bottles up those feelings, only letting them out in anger with her gang of friends, almost bullying Basil. She puts on this facade of a delinquent and essentially starts playing the role of the delinquent she’s become in the minds of the town, which gets shown off really well in the Church scene. In One Day Left, Aubrey is able to make amends and realize everyone was processing Mari’s death their own way, and it isn’t fair of her to demand the care she never gave to Sunny or Kel or Hero or Basil. We even get a nice heart to heart between Sunny and Aubrey on the swings where Aubrey shows concern for Sunny and hopes he lives a healthier lifestyle when he moves. Like Hero, we don;t get to see what Aubrey does after learning the truth of Mari’s death, but I like to believe she becomes the Mari of her own little biker gang while also staying pals with Basil, Hero, and Kel at the very least.
“Cacti are very sturdy and resilient plants by nature. They don't need much care and can survive even in seemingly impossible conditions. I guess what I'm saying... is that even you could take care of a cactus, KEL…”
Kel really is tough, just being a cool supportive friend in Headspace and the Real World, although some cracks shine through in the ladder. When Kel finds out Sunny is moving, he calls constantly and knocks on the door every morning in the days leading to the move. This shows that even though he always plays it cool, he still really misses the good ol’ days and Sunny in general. Kel’s competitive nature when it comes to his height also shows how Kel really craves some attention when Hero was always seen as the cool, handsome, successful brother. The scene you can totally miss at the Church really highlights Kel’s struggle after Mari’s death. He puts on a smile and tries consoling Hero who’s been moping for days, and when Hero snaps their parents only come running to Hero’s side. Kel never gets the same attention as Hero even when they’re both grieving. Kel constantly gets criticized for not knowing what everyone’s going through post Mari’s death, but he feels those emotions just as much as anyone else. Kel’s coping mechanism is just different than everyone else's. He gets by with a smile and tries to be supportive for everyone else's sake while not letting himself properly grieve. Kel has already started to move on in his own ways. He gets to be a big brother to his newborn little sister, and he got a spot on the Basketball team, easily making friends with teammates and other athletes at school. My hope for Kel after the truth is revealed is that he shows a little more of his vulnerable side to people like Hero, Aubrey and Basil as well as his new teammates, but again we don’t get any confirmation
“And these... These are white tulips. Tulips aren't very flashy plants. They're not too big or small, not too elaborate or flamboyant. If I could put it in another way... I guess I would say that... they're comfortable. Simple, modest, and perfect. Just like SUNNY.”
-note, this is the dialogue from the end of the game, not the prologue
Omori's a blank slate. Sunny on the other hand is very imaginative, his mind is vast and detailed, full of complex feelings hard to express in any other way than what we see in Headspace itself. The core of Sunny’s character is the conflict within his heart between Omori, who thrives on stagnation and escapism, and Sunny’s own inquisitive mind that always leads him towards the truth; a self imposed maze to the self. The rest of the cast all fold into this same idea of finding their true self through the Photo Album, coming to accept all the memories they had together, the good and the bad. Sunny is the most obvious example of confronting the side of him that yearns to forget and get lost in the fog. To move on, Sunny must accept Omori, his mirror reflection, the reflection that only he can see. He can’t ignore Omori, but he also can’t let Omori take over, he has to find balance and accept that Omori is just as real a part of Sunny as Sunny himself is. Coming to terms with the whole of his memories as well as his contradiction of the heart lets Sunny move on. Will his life be happier from here? Who’s to say? Only Sunny will know as he ventures out into the world.
The White Egret Orchid
“In the language of flowers, it symbolizes the phrase… ‘My thoughts will follow you into your dreams.’”
The last flower I wanted to cover doesn;t correlate to a specific character, but to death and memories. This flower always appears where death is looming. On the nightstand next to Basil’s grandmother, next to Mari’s grave, and even filling the strange Library in Headspace after Sweetheart’s Castle. The scene’s they’re present in always talk about memories of the past and how good things used to be. I believe the White Egret Orchid represents how your memories are always with you, not physically, but in spirit. The good times with Mari are always with Sunny, the good times everyone used to have going on trips, building their treehouse, even Kel just making a mess brings back these good memories, but just because they’re memories doesn;t make them any less meaningful. You could also say the “Thoughts” literally follow Sunny into his dreams as Headspace is a place for Sunny/Omori to get lost in the good times. But the orchid isn’t just about the good memories. The pain and sorrow of loss are also always with you. The things you regret and despair are always going to be a part of you too, and a Sunny’s story is about accepting the bad, acknowledging that Sunny and Omori and both him, no one half being more real than the other, just like his memories of Mari and the good times are all real, not just the good or the bad. He can’t lose himself in the good and become ignorant to that Something he can’t move past. Even Mirrors within the story characterize how your memories are always with you. In Headspace, your friends all warmly smile behind you, but in the real world you’ll occasionally catch Something behind you, who only disappears in the end of the Good ending of the game. With Headspace gone and Something gone, those things are no longer behind Sunny, but something Sunny accepts.

2023.03.21 11:43 msaluta86 Time to move on?
I’ve been a scrum master for about five total years. Two were as a JR developer, three as a release manager.
I’m feeling quite bitter about all of it. When I was hired on to the company I work for, there was a lot of room for team growth. No retrospectives, standup meetings being treated as status meetings for leadership, consistent 30-50% sprint carryover, no definitions of ready or done, feature factory/firefighter teams that disliked the idea of self-organization and wanted the scrum master to be the team parent that told folks what to do.
In my first week I challenged some of this softly in meetings, doing my coaching thing, but was immediately reprimanded publicly by my boss who would also attend those meetings. It felt jarring to be told to stop the thing I was hired to do in a public forum where I had yet to establish credibility. Fast forward three years and many conversations, I’m essentially the team secretary.
I’m debating going back into system admin type work, possibly moving straight project management, but some I’ve talked to say that this workplace is not standard and that I should apply to different companies to gain more perspective. Problem is I may have already stayed too long. Being vulnerable here, my confidence is in the toilet. It feels like I’ve lost my voice and will to help change anything. Any advice from my fellow scrum masters?

2023.03.21 11:40 avrafrost Here's a breakdown of the actual problem with Legend/Master Lost Sectors in Destiny 2 using straight maths. The drop chances. Long post.
For a moment let's put aside the discussion around how difficult lost sectors are post-lightfall launch and look at the ever evolving issue of drop rates.
Please note that some assumptions were made in regards to base rates and such but all my work can be seen here
and can be updated on the fly with any new information.
To start with, assuming a base drop rate per Lost sector to be 30%/40% for Legend/Master, here's the actual drop rate chance of getting one specific piece of armour.
| || ||Helmet ||Gauntlet ||Chest ||Leg |
|Hunter ||Legend % ||3.33 ||2.50 ||3.33 ||3.33 |
| ||Master % ||4.44 ||3.33 ||4.44 ||4.44 |
|Titan ||Legend % ||3.33 ||2.31 ||3.75 ||3.33 |
| ||Master % ||4.44 ||3.08 ||5.00 ||4.44 |
|Warlock ||Legend % ||2.73 ||2.50 ||3.75 ||3.75 |
| ||Master % ||3.64 ||3.33 ||5.00 ||5.00 |
What this means, in broad strokes, is that the absolute highest chance of getting a specific exotic armour piece based on the presumed drop rate is 5.00% for Titan Chest and Warlock Chest/Leg on a Master Lost Sector. The lowest chance is Titan Gauntlets at 2.31%.
Now keep in mind that these numbers so far are simply to get an exotic armour to drop from a lost sector and doesn't deal with Stat Distributions or Stat Range where is where the already abysmal drop rates get even worse. For the purposes of that calculation I have made the assumption that LLS/MLS armour can drop only between a total of 59 and 65. When applied to the previous numbers we get the following percentage chance to drop at max (65 stats)
| ||65 stat roll ||Helmet ||Gauntlet ||Chest ||Leg |
|Hunter ||Legend % ||0.42 ||0.31 ||0.42 ||0.42 |
| ||Master % ||0.56 ||0.42 ||0.56 ||0.56 |
|Titan ||Legend % ||0.42 ||0.29 ||0.47 ||0.42 |
| ||Master % ||0.56 ||0.38 ||0.63 ||0.56 |
|Warlock ||Legend % ||0.34 ||0.31 ||0.47 ||0.47 |
| ||Master % ||0.45 ||0.42 ||0.63 ||0.63 |
Now here comes the fun
part. If you actually want to calculate for a specific stat distribution passed this point it gets real small. I'm only going to give one example as they're a little hard to calculate with specific distributions.
|Boots of the Assembler - 65 stat || |
|Mobility ||2 |
|Resilience ||9 |
|Recovery ||30 |
|Discipline ||2 |
|Intellect ||20 |
|Strength ||2 |
Assumptions made here (besides the ones above) is that 2 is lowest a stat can roll and that the player has a Ghost mod for 10 Recovery minimum installed during a Master Lost Sector. With that in mind that stat distribution is only really calculated on 43 stat point as they're being rolled. This also ignores the chance to roll on the stat range which isn't really relevant here. IF
my assumptions are correct at each level (which can be updated) and
I haven't massively borked the calculations then the chances of rolling that specific piece of armour with that specific stat distribution in a Master Lost sector is 5.02E-22 which is 0.0000000000000000000000502%
Now this last part about the stats I did just for fun.
Honestly only the first part should be relevant to most players. Those who are looking for high stat armour should be doing it elsewhere (nightfalls) and lost sectors should never be farmed at these drop rates.
Until there's a way to target a much smaller selection of exotics in a lost sector they are simply not worth your time. Especially with the increased difficulty. As more exotics armours get released over time this issue will only compound further and I haven't even addressed what it's currently like for new lights to even get into and beat lost sectors at there new difficulty level.
Avra Warlock Reckoner 119,196 Triumph Score
TL;DR - Don't waste your time with lost sectors once you've unlocked any new armour.

2023.03.21 11:37 Yevdokiya (Spoilers Extended) I hope to heck neither Sansa nor Arya ever encounter a certain Lady...
That is, Lady Stoneheart. I can't imagine how traumatic it would be to see their beloved and longed for mother's rotting corpse reanimated as a cold, bloodthirsty revenge monster.
I imagine Arya would be most likely to take it in stride, since she's got layers and layers of trauma already and has coped by dissociating into a fairly similar, bloodthirsty and cold-hearted revenge quest herself.
Come to think of it, it can be no accident that Nymeria, Arya's literal lost spirit animal, dragged Catelyn's corpse from the river to be resurrected, resulting in our revenge monster. The themes are too similar. Perhaps, then, Arya IS meant to encounter Lady Stoneheart? Maybe she is even destined to eventually give her the gift of "Mercy"?
How could that even work? Might the infamous dagger meant to kill Bran play a role after all, just in an infinitely better way than the show's surprise Night King destruction? There is a connection, since it shed the living Catelyn's blood as she tried to save her son, willing to give her own life to do so. Or will the wolf Nymeria, either reunited with Arya or not, assist by tearing Lady Stoneheart to shreds?
Furthermore, how will the revenge monster ultimately be destroyed? Would her dismembered parts keep moving, like a wight of the Others? Seems like burning might not work on a wight-ish being resurrected by fire. Will freezing due to the coming winter perhaps play a role?
As for Sansa, while she's got her own layers of terrible trauma, they're not as bad as Arya's, and she's in a very different place than her sister. In fact, I'd say Sansa has adapted about as healthily as one can to her circumstances, and it's only a matter of time before she sees Littlefinger for what he is and gets the upper hand on him. Having her encounter Lady Stoneheart just seems unnecessary torture, even for GRRM, and would serve no thematic purpose I can think of.
I would also like to add that I believe all the remaining Stark children (and Jon) will survive and have some role to play. This would lend a bit of cool foreshadowing to Ned's adage, "The lone wolf dies, but the pack survives." Obviously it's a metaphor, but it would be cool if for all their tribulations, Robb is actually the only one of them to die and the rest of the pack survives. (Though the symmetry is slightly diminished by the fact that of the children's wolves, Grey Wolf AND Lady have already died.) This would lend all the more ironic tragedy to Catelyn's final despairing thoughts, which fuel Lady Stoneheart's entire being: she literally thinks that ALL her sweet babes are dead -- even though to her own knowledge Sansa's not dead yet, just married into the Lannisters -- when in fact, only Robb is, and her other four children survive. It's not her fault, but this unfounded despair destroys her mind and turns her into a monster.
My final questions are therefore: will Lady Stoneheart ever find out that almost all her children live? What would she do if she did?
This concludes my thoughts and wonderings. I'd love to read yours.

2023.03.21 11:35 PinoyNotPenoy Hoping someone na may knowledge sa gym equipments particularly sa Treadmills can help me. What does this mean? Kaya ko ba tong mag-isa ayusin? or should I bring it to technician?
2023.03.21 11:35 Personal-Ad696 I(33f) slapped my boyfriends (38m) leg the other night and been dealing with absolute hell since
Sorry if it’s a bit long I’m trying to summarize the events as they happened. Sunday night, we were laying in bed together watching tv.
I felt hungry so I made us fries as a snack. I took my plate away and his sauce before he was done, kind of a habit just tidying up after things.
I was already back and soon he said “you took my sauce away?” I offered to get it back, he said don’t bother and that’s why he tells me to stop doing this because he wanted it and it wasn’t there. He then said the fries would have been better with sauce. And some other dumb comment asking me if I plan on taking his fries before he’s done
When he was done - I took his plate and he asked for a popsicle, despite me feeling like he was being a little mean I brought back a popsicle and said, be nicer to me.
From there he proceeded to tell me how I don’t know how to take a joke and that’s not his problem that I’m slow. I said it was mean and he said “I don’t care what you think”. We bickered a little back and forth. I was trying to explain that I didn’t feel he was joking because he wasn’t smiling or anything. He wouldn’t let me speak and started to laugh at me.
He started to act like I wasn’t making sense and telling me I’m using the wrong words/ make no sense. Laughing at me.
I told him to stop and leave me alone, still just laughing at me. I backhand swatted his leg (we are basically lying side by side in bed but it definitely was out of frustration). “Did you just hit me?” He immediately left the room.
We live together and often times when we fight, it’s text or no resolution because when I try to talk he makes fun of me or basically makes me out to be crazy. Ask me if I take my antidepressants etc.
I know it was wrong. I do feel bad. But what feels worse is that now - because I’m the “bad guy” we don’t have to talk about his behaviour at all. And that’s all now irrelevant. If I try to bring it up, I will get shut down.
Today he’s home from work and tried to suck up to me. He brought it up, even said that it wasn’t even a real hit and I said I didn’t like how he was treating me/laughing at me which ended in him yelling at me and calling me an r-word. Telling me I’m lying and making up the timeline. In his eyes, I just snapped. But honestly it’s been 2 years, I know how closely I need to keep track of what I say.
I said “you called me stupid” basically summarizing his behaviour and while arguing that’s all he could say, was “I never called you stupid” while ignoring everything else I said and telling me I have an anger problem and make shit up.
I had sent him a text after the arguing stopped which said “If you are not willing to speak to me and have an adult conversation about my feelings and not call me retarded I think we should break up. “
“Don't fuckin text me shit You think you act like an adult Fuckin joke Get lost” “I think we should break up too” “For real this time”
I just said okay. I disengaged from the conversation and never told him to go, asked him to go, argued or said anything foul beyond that. He moved his stuff out of the room. Made one attempt to hug me. I said I didn’t want a hug and he goes “well, I tried. Don’t come crying to me when you change your mind”.
He ends up going out and getting drunk. While I stayed home crying most of the night.
I don’t know if I should be trying harder at this point and just looking for some input on this behaviour. I’m disgusted how we speak to eachother when we are angry but I’m shocked he would rather break up than simply not be nasty.
