What they have instead is recycled paper fibre bags that feel like soft fabric and are biodearadable. Here is my afternoon purchase in its bag.

Asking the west to retire plastic is like asking them to give up their nuclear weapons. The U.S. military is the single greatest institutional contributor to the growing natural disasters intensified by global climate change.

4chan, America, and Anime: Researchers Studied 160 Milliorn Memes and Found Most of Them Come From Two Websites A study of hundreds of millions of images from Reddit, 4chan, Gab, and Twitter reveals how memes spread. Samantha Cole Jun 12 2018,10:27am 产ブ Researchers at University College London developed a new way to measure how memes are made and spread. What they found won't surprise anyone who's peered into the darker parts of the internet in the last few years: The most toxic, yet most effectively spread, memes are first shared on two places, the subreddit r/the_donald and 4chan's "politically incorrect" forum, called /pol/ Smug Frog Meme Image Cluster 1 Cluster N Figure 1: An example of a meme (Smug Frog) that provides an intu- ition of what an image, a cluster, and a meme is.

Being Alone, Comfortable, and Energy: MILLIONAIRE MENTOR MAKE THINGS HAPPEN TODAY Would you like to know how to make things HAPPEN in your life? Read on! 👇👀 - Too many people spend their lives counting down the days until the weekend so they can forget about their temporary reprieve. Then it’s right back on the hamster wheel. Some live their lives in comfortable ignorance, unaware of their true potential. They have it good; you can’t agonize over anything you don’t value. But then there are those who know better, that feel like life is passing them by because they have so much to offer. Plagued by the fact that all of their creative energy is going to waste, they are tortured souls. If this is you, I have good news: You can change that. 😉 - ✔️Consume less. Produce more. Assuming one has a full-time job, nearly half of the hours in their week go towards working and sleeping. The problem for most people is they’ve conditioned themselves to come home each day and consume. Going out to the bar, watching television, spending hours on social media, all of these are means of consuming and can be detrimental to your productivity. If you want to start making things happen in your life… if you desire to get off the hamster wheel, then something has to change. And you know what it is! ✔️Don’t be afraid to start your own path. One of the biggest hang-ups for creative people is their innate desire to rally the troops. I struggled with this for years. “I need to get my friends on board with my vision first,” I told myself. “Then I’ll start making things happen.” But that’s the wrong mindset. You can’t rely on people to get behind your vision before you take action. You have to lead first. 🤔 👉READ THIS CAREFULLY: There’s nothing wrong with enjoying yourself, but keep your end goal in mind. Is what you’re doing today going to get you to where you want to be tomorrow? If not, it’s time to make a change. Remember too, that sometimes being a creator means blazing your own trail. If you have an idea, go after it. There’s no time to wait for others to follow you. What do you think? Are you guilty of consuming too much and producing too little? Do you sometimes feel like you’re alone in your creative journey? Share your thoughts below!👇 - getit success

Children, Christmas, and Dude: Kotaku @Kotaku Follow Meet the 19-year-old who spent over $10,000 on microtransactions bit.ly/2jE8P2n 8:50 AM-3 Dec 2017 49 Retweets 117 Likes 29 t 49 117 asynca: tallerthanatitan: punished-rainy-days: Remember what I was saying before about how microtransactions are geared specifically to exploit addicts and “If you don’t like it don’t buy it” isn’t an argument? @asynca Thank you for @-ing me.  For those of you who don’t know, I’m a specialist problem gambling financial counsellor. This means that I’m specially trained, qualified and experienced in aiding the rehabilitation of people struggling with problem gambling, and working with people who are affected by others’ problem gambling protect themselves and rebuild their lives. I spend 30% of the hours of my day job working with these people.  I’m going to make a very bold statement: micro-transactions with a ‘chance’ element are gambling. They are what is called an ‘embedded gambling element’ in a game. They may be a ‘softer’ form of gambling than sitting at a poker machine, but they are gambling. They normalise gambling to children (which has been shown to lead to problem gambling). They groom future problem gamblers, and they exploit people who have neurochemical imbalances (ie, depression). There is a very, very strong link between gambling and mental illness.  People who gamble in games are more likely to susceptible to current and future gambling problems. I’m going to focus on lootboxes in Overwatch, because it’s the game I know the most about. I also know a lot about how poker machines are psychologically designed to be highly addictive, specifically exploiting known psychological triggers to reel people in and keep them spending.  Poker machines ‘tease’ you with near wins which provide you with the same adrenaline and dopamine release as an actual win.  Overwatch lootboxes do the same - you know that feel of seeing a purple/gold coin flipping in the air??? OMG! Is it going to be THAT THING YOU REALLY!!!!-oh.  Bright colours, exciting lights, the visceral feel of pushing the button/spinning the wheel is important to addiction. Blizzard has does the same with lootboxes - by vibrating your controller. By shaking the camera. By having the lootbox rATTLE AND EXPLODE!!!! with your reward. The sounds and specially engineered to build excitement and tensions and remind you of wealth. The ‘coin’ system of the lootbox reminds you of wealth. This is all super deliberate - it’s not a mistake. Using subconscious cues like exploding money boxes!!! the sound of money, the shape of money - that’s likening the process to a lottery.  While it’s quite unlikely someone could actually spend ENORMOUS amounts of money chasing that ‘jackpot’ (the skin they really want for their character, for example), it is possible. HOWEVER, it’s much more likely that the person will have this sort of reward system normalised, will find the element of chance ‘exciting’ (because, dude, we’re psychologically engineered to be more interested in ‘chance’ events than certain/impossible events), and seek out and enjoy other similar passtimes. Like actual gambling with real money.  Every time you gamble, you change the structure of your brain. I’m not exaggerating. Every time you take a chance on that lootbox, you flood your brain with adrenaline and dopamine. The presence of those two neurochemicals changes the density of the receptors of them minutely. After a few boxes, it’s unlikely you’ll become addicted. However, if you keep doing it, your receptors change density so that you need more adrenaline and more dopamine to get the same excitement and pleasure from the hit.  Worse, this rush of adrenaline and dopamine is much, much more addictive to people with mental illness (or a susceptibility to mental illness), as the presence of these chemicals is a very unhealthy (but unfortunately effective, at least in the extremely short term) way of medicating mental illness. Unfortunately, because of the escalating changes in receptor density, it eventually makes mental illness much worse in the long run. There is a strong link between gambling and suicide.  Compare your first lootbox with the lootboxes you get now. Are you getting the same enjoyment? Nope.  Think how many times you bought 11 lootboxes…. only to buy another 11 and another 11 and another 11. It becomes mechanical, pressing that button, opening another lootbox. Kind of like sitting at a poker machine.  Think about how normal the lootbox system seems now.  Chance-based gambling reward systems in games are dangerous, and should be replaced either by work-and-reward systems (you get 10 credits per level, and you can spend these on rewards of your choice), combined with micro-transaction-based currency for people who do not have the time to commit to leveling 300 times for that epic Christmas skin.  Remove chance. Just remove it.

Being Alone, Community, and Family: dddasss Yesterday Guys, I have no idea why but recently, I've been feeling really depressed. But I have absolutely no reason to be depressed. I am actually not joking. I really need help. I have a loving family, great friends, good grades, but I'm fucking depressed for some reason. 151 Reply ItsJustinM 13 minutes ago Depression comes and goes. Everyone has been down at some point and their life. What I would do if I were you is go out and do something exciting. Set up something fun with your friends that will make you happy. Spending time with your friends and family and having fun is honestly the best way to get through a random stage of depression. (The pornhub community is the best community to come to for anything) Hope all turns out well 1 Reply Jmcy11 1 hour ago You aren't alone mate, there are a lot of people that feel the same way you do. Don't be afraid to go to a counselor and seek help, internalizing your problems won't solve anything, I think you should go talk to someone 1 Reply NightDoll 19 hours ago You have a loving family and friends dont be afraid to ask them for help. You're not alone 5 Reply brandJames 23 hours ago I've been feeling the same way, man. Like WalkerTexasNutter (great name by the way) said, find someone to talk to. The brain is a funny thing, and sometimes shit gets imbalanced up there. Don't let it cut your life short It's not worth it. It's never is. 5 Reply WalkerTexasNutter Yesterday Don't be afraid to seek professional help man. I've been there and asking for help was the hardest damn thing i've ever done but it saved my life. Good luck 1 Reply Sexless SexAddict Yesterday All you need to know, really, is that everything starts within the mind. 21 Reply <p>Even Pornhub can be wholesome via /r/wholesomememes <a href="http://ift.tt/2ydirb8">http://ift.tt/2ydirb8</a></p>
