Advice, Alive, and Ass: English Pronunciation If you can pronounce correctly every word in this poem, you will be speaking English better than 90 % of the native English speakers in the world. After trying the verses, a Frenchman said he'd prefer six months of hard labour to reading six lines aloud. Dearest creature in creation, Study English pronunciation. I will teach you in my verse Sounds like corpse, corps, horse, and worse. I will keep you, Suzy, busy, Make your head with heat grow dizzy. Tear in eye, your dress will tear. So shall I! Oh hear my prayer. Just compare heart, beard, and heard, Dies and diet, lord and word, Sword and sward, retain and Britain. (Mind the latter, how it's written.) Now I surely will not plague you With such words as plaque and ague. But be careful how you speak: Say break and steak, but bleak and streak Cloven, oven, how and low, Script, receipt, show, poem, and toe. Hear me say, devoid of trickery, Daughter, laughter, and Terpsichore, Typhoid, measles, topsails, aisles, Exiles, similes, and reviles; Scholar, vicar, and cigar, Solar, mica, war and far; One, anemone, Balmoral, Kitchen, lichen, laundry, laurel; Gertrude, German, wind and mind, Scene, Melpomene, mankind. Billet does not rhyme with ballet, Bouquet, wallet, mallet, chalet. Blood and flood are not like food, Nor is mould like should and would. Viscous, viscount, load and broad, Toward, to forward, to reward. And your pronunciation's OK When you correctly say croquet, Rounded, wounded, grieve and sieve, Friend and fiend, alive and live. Ivy, privy, famous; clamour And enamour rhyme with hammer. River, rival, tomb, bomb, comb, Doll and roll and some and home. Stranger does not rhyme with anger, Neither does devour with clangour. Souls but foul, haunt but aunt Font, front, wont, want, grand, and grant, Shoes, goes, does. Now first say finger, And then singer, ginger, linger, Real, zeal, mauve, gauze, gouge and gauge, Marriage, foliage, mirage, and age. Query does not rhyme with very, Nor does fury sound like bury. Dost, lost, post and doth, cloth, loth. Job, nob, bosom, transom, oath. Though the differences seem little, We say actual but victual. Refer does not rhyme with deafer. FeOffer does, and zephyr, heifer. Mint, pint, senate and sedate; Dull, bull, and George ate late. Scenic, Arabic, Pacific, Science, conscience, scientific Liberty, library, heave and heaven, Rachel, ache, moustache, eleven. We say hallowed, but allowed, People, leopard, towed, but vowed. Mark the differences, moreover, Between mover, cover, clover; Leeches,breeches, wise, precise Chalice, but police and lice; Camel, constable, unstable, Principle, disciple, label. Petal, panel, and canal, Wait, surp Worm and storm, chaise, chaos, chair, Senator, spectator, mayor. Tour, but our and succour, four. Gas, alas, and Arkansas. Sea, idea, Korea, area, Psalm, Maria, but malaria. Youth, south, southern, cleanse and clean. Doctrine, turpentine, marine. Compare alien with Italian, Dandelion and battalion. plait, promise, pal. Sally with ally, yea, ye, Eye,I, ay, aye, whey, and key. Say aver, but ever, fever, Neither, leisure, skein, deceiver. Heron, granary, canary. Crevice and device and aerie. Face, but preface, not efface. Phlegm, phlegmatic, ass, glass, bas. Large, but target, gin, give, verging, Ought, out, joust and scour, scourging. Ear, but earn and wear and tear Do not rhyme with here but ere. Seven is right, but so is even, Hyphen, roughen, nephew Stephen, Monkey, donkey, Turk and jerk, Ask, grasp, wasp, and cork and work. Pronunciation (think of Psyche!) Is a paling stout and spikey? Won't it make you lose your wits, Writing groats and saying grits? It's a dark abyss or tunnel: Strewn with stones, stowed, solace, gunwale, Islington and Isle of Wight, Housewife, verdict and indict. Finally, which rhymes with enough, Though, through, plough, or dough, or cough? Hiccough has the sound of cup. My advice is to give up!!! you should probably go to TheMetaPicture.com lolzandtrollz: Excellent English Pronunciation Poem

News, Precious, and Target: OUL vladislava: mylistofthangs: Antique Jewish wedding rings.  These are absolutely gorgeous. Some info: Antique Jewish wedding bands are stellar examples of the artistry of jewelry making. The rings are made of a metal circle, molded to fit the would-be owner, topped with an architectural feature resembling a house. The goldsmith would then engrave something on the exterior of the “house”; engravings were also commonly hidden inside, in which case the “house” – or bezel – would slide open. The engraving would usually read Mazal Tov, or the Hebrew initials M.T. The rings’ houses varied in design from castle-like, to square, round or hexagonal. The structures were representations of either the Holy Temple or synagogues in the diaspora. Large in diameter and heavy due to the architectural features, many of the rings are practically unwearable. Morgan ponders the question as well, saying that there is no conclusive evidence, either in Jewish tradition or in the Christian documentation recording Jewish practices, of such rings ever having been worn. Trading in gold, jewels and precious stones was the trade of choice by wealthy Jewish merchants for hundreds of years. The memoir portrait of Gluckel of Hamlen, the daughter of a gold merchant of those times, depicts a wedding ring embroidered in gold thread, hanging from a necklace, which may have been the way the rings were worn after the wedding ceremony.  Jewish wedding bands are unique and although many of them are magnificent and expensive, none have stones set in them. The rings are devoid of their classical focal point due to a rabbinical ordinance barring setting gemstones in wedding bands, or engraving them with hallmarks – the latter first appearing in the 19th century. Also, Jewish goldsmiths were not allowed to join guilds and mark their creations until circa that time. (via)

Being Alone, Facts, and Fucking: TIME TO FACE THE FACTS SEX BOTS ARE FEMALE GENOCIDE WHEN SEX BOTS ARE CELEBRATED AS " THE FUTURE WOMEN ARE DESTINED TO BECOME PART OF THE PAST @XXWOMENAGAINSTSEXBOT & WOMENAGAINSTSEXBOTS.TUMBLR.COM xdarylofthebellsx: libertarirynn: ricwulf: blackan08: brett-caton: Good god, the paranoid delusions of these people! I don’t see some popular movement screaming “the future is MALE”. Argh this just so fucking stupid I dunno, I find this incredibly funny. Think about the kind of person who would actually say this, and it becomes clear that replacing them, specifically, with sex robots would be a net gain. These are the people that are devoid of a personality. They lack any and all depth. The only thing these bitter women have to offer is sex, the area that they currently hold the keys to (men are expected to court women, and a man’s consent is almost always assumed). It’s even more apparent that it’s about maintaining control of this sphere when you look at birth control, and how Feminists have opposed male birth control pills in the past. They’re terrified that men will be able to get sex without them, because without sex they’re nothing. Meanwhile, back in reality, most women won’t freak out over this. They might think it’s icky and be uncomfortable (and I agree to a certain extent), but they’re more than just sex and they know that. They have nothing to fear because that isn’t all they offer. Because women are more than their vagina. 15 sex bots broke into my room and killed me on site idk what you’re talking about.Also they make male sex robots too but I see almost no one talk about that for some reason 🤔🤔🤔 Shouldn’t radfems be glad that these exist because then men won’t bother women for sex and fucking sex robots instead, leaving women alone? They don’t know what they fucking want. Half of them are political lesbians anyway so it’s not like they want to have sex with men to begin with. They also insist that women should be treated as more than just sex objects but then act like literal sex objects are replacing women.

Ass, Fire, and Head: quentyl: lb-lee: avatarsymbolism: Zuko and Mai v Mr. Boomerang. One of the reasons Avatar is one of the few epic fantasies I’ve actually liked is that nobody is above indignity. This is a thing a lot of genres do, but epic fantasies seem to be impressively devoid of any sense of humor, and often cave to the temptation to make the villains or heroes so badass that nothing embarrassing or stupid ever happens to them. In Avatar (the last airbender, anyway, haven’t seen Korra), everyone has stupid shit happen to them.  Even Fire Lord Ozai has his moments– “No, Fire Lord Ozai, YOU aren’t wearing pants!” Azula gets covered in mud.  Zuko has… well, getting conked in the head by a boomerang is only the beginning of the stupid undignified shit he experiences. (Though he still doesn’t compare to Sokka, the emperor unto perpetuity of Shameland.) And I love that.  Because in life, sometimes you get covered in mud.  Sometimes you get conked in the head when you’re trying to be brooding and dramatic.  STUPID SHIT HAPPENS TO YOU.  And in real life, you still manage to be badass, or terrible, even in your moments of human frailty. I wish I saw that more often. Yes! This, so much. That’s definitively something I’ve noticed too, and I love it! Actually, in a way, I think it’s kind of addressed in the show itself: Zuko was publicly humiliated, punished and banished for speaking out of turn at a meeting. This was considered a personal offense to the Fire Lord: they were so strict and enamored with their “dignity” that the slightest misstep by a child could turn into some sort of great insult. And if you’re insulted the proper response is to defend your honor in Agni Kai, a duel to the death (with a child if need be). In contrast, among the Air Nomads, it was okay to throw mud pies at the head monks and laugh your ass off. It was even encouraged: creativity, fun and humility were seen as the most essential qualities. No one was above pranks - neither being pranked nor even doing the pranks. And it didn’t mean they didn’t know respect - we know Aang had enormous respect for his elders and their teachings. It’s actually a much truer form of respect than what you could find in the Fire Nation, where fear kept you silent. So, I think there is a lesson here, that maybe we should learn not to hold our dignity in such high regard, that it’s good to know how to laugh at yourself? And when ATLA has fun with its serious characters, it’s also a way to illustrate this idea - the show is all the richer by not taking itself too seriously.

Confidence, Energy, and Friends: ASPIRE TO INSPIRE BEFOR WE EXPIRE Has anyone ever inspired you to change your life in a significant way that made you healthier, happier, or more fulfilled? If so, you understand the difference that positive inspiration can make in a person’s life. - 👀Would you like to know the simplest ways to inspire people and change their lives?👇 ✔️Care. If you can’t show a person that you genuinely care about them, do you think you will be able to inspire them? The answer is a resounding, “NO!” Show people you care in your words (“How are you today?”) and your actions (small acts of kindness go a long way). ✔️Be enthusiastic. The saying “enthusiasm is contagious” is common enough to be cliché, but it’s a cliché because it’s true. Reflect enthusiasm every day to the people you are in contact with and I’m willing to wager your genuine smiles, positive energy, and caring concern will be returned ten-fold. ✔️Earn trust. If a person you know and love tells you a secret, it stays between you and them. Trust takes a long time to build, but it can be destroyed overnight, so don’t take part in workplace gossip or unnecessary drama in your social networks so you can be a positive influence that people are unafraid to talk to. ✔️Reach for the stars. No one will be inspired by a person who resigns themselves to “reality” (such a dreadful place that sounds devoid of hope or personal growth in my opinion). Be ambitious, aim high, and never surrender if you want to inspire people that they, too, can accomplish anything they set their mind to. ✔️Stay true to who you are. A lot of us have a variety of “selves” that come out depending on the social situation: home, work, and friends all require a different song-and-dance. But putting on a different show for every group of people you encounter is super exhausting, and it’s certainly not a good way to inspire people around you. Would you place your confidence in a person who was so uncomfortable in their personality that they felt the need to pander to whatever crowd they were with? Embrace your true self without apology. - aspire inspire success live millionairementor

Bad, Benjamin Franklin, and Fall: BE HAPPY WITH WHAT YOU HAVE, WHILE YOU PURSUE WHAT YOU WANT. @MILLIONAIRE MENTOR - “There are two ways to increase your wealth. Increase your means or decrease your wants. The best is to do both at the same time.” What a quote by my boy Benjamin Franklin 🔥 Misery shouldn’t be the price for ambition. Somewhere I believe many people got the idea that to want more, you have to be dissatisfied with what you have now. Believing this, your choice is either to dampen your passions or become miserable with what you have. Here are some tips I’ve found useful in becoming happier with your current situation: ✔️Don’t put all your eggs in one basket. Investors understand that diversification keeps one bad fall from ruining you financially. Keeping your interests diversified, ensures that one slip won’t make you miserable. Tying your entire life into only one area isn’t just obsessive, it’s dangerous. ✔️Engineer your day. Spend a bit of time reorganizing how you run your daily life. The goal isn’t to have the most productive day possible or one that is devoid of all “bad” habits. Your objective is simply to experiment with changes that might make your day more interesting, fun or fulfilling. ✔️Break comparisons. Breaking comparisons with other people will make you happier, but it isn’t easy to do. There isn’t an OFF switch in your brain for competition. Start by: -Diversify your social life. -Shut off the media. -Find your talents. -Focus internally. ✔️Don’t make yourself miserable. It took awhile for me to realize that happily working towards a goal gave the same results as stressed frustration. The stereotype that the high-achiever needs to be an obsessive maniac is a good one to make you feel miserable. It is easy to look at outside problems as the source of your misery. But too often you bring it upon yourself. Ambition is important, but don’t see it as a trade-off for appreciating what you have. When you trade today for tomorrow, you might realize you have nothing left. 😉 - behappy success grind enjoy millionairementor

Advice, Bitch, and Children: "you give them a taste of their own medicine, then they tell everyone you poisoned them.” For all the men out there whose ideas of what it is to be a man, have been influenced by psychopaths... Sometimes it's okay to cry Sometimes it's ok to admit you are scared It's normal to be lead by women It's cool to have the respect of women as well the respect of men You don't need to deal with every situation with your temper, you don't always need to shout to be heard There are right & wrong times to use force, all of the time is not a normal way of dealing with life It's ok to say to a woman, I don't have a clue, can you teach me It's okay to admit you are wrong I seek advice from women daily You need guidance from women They aren't merely sex objects for your consumption Many men have been taught what a man is, by males who treat women like sh*t Being spiritually devoid isn't a good thing I used to be there, I saw my mum abused by my dad when I was a child, then from about 13-23 I went on to treat women like they were just there for sex. She didn't teach me that, men did I know that I was wrong... I have changed I have never put my hands on a woman & I will never For all of the men reading this who feel insecure, it's ok, but don't come with the weak argument, what if a woman hits you first, that's a rare thing & usually it's because of something you have done. There is no such thing as reverse sexism, don't hide behind your insecurities, don't project them on to me or women. Doing the washing up, cooking the food, cleaning up, raising your children properly are all parts of being a man. If she tries to emasculate you then calmly tell her that you don't need her social conditioning, taught by sexist men to interfere with your relationship between you both. I have been called a pussy & a bitch by a partner when she lost her temper, she was also violent to me... I shouted but I would never hit her, I moved on. I'm still a man & I'm not in jail or facing a court case I still have my dignity It's cleansing to share your emotions, only getting emotional at a football game will leave you feeling empty with life Your life is emotional, it's what makes you human. Sometimes it's ok to cry chakabars

Children, College, and Drinking: This 17-Year-Old Mexican-American Student Was Accepted to 18 Prestigious Universities Source: Remezcla Courtesy of Children's Defense Fund José Alberto Aceves Salvador, with his mother and father. Courtesy of the Aceves family MUSTREAD When next fall rolls around, José Alberto Aceves Salvador will begin his undergraduate career. But whether that’s as a student at Harvard, Cornell, Princeton, Yale, MIT, UC Berkeley, UCLA, or any of the other 11 schools that accepted him remains unknown. José – the son of two Mexican immigrants – will graduate as the valedictorian of his class at New Open World Academy in Los Angeles. He also has a pretty impressive résumé. Even then, he felt surprised that so many schools accepted him. “When I applied to all these universities, I felt overwhelmed,” he told La Opinión. “I thought I didn’t stand a chance, and that they wouldn’t accept me.” For the 17-year-old student, getting to this moment hasn’t been devoid of obstacles. His parents, who arrived in the country in their 20s, have always worked very hard to provide for their three children. But they’ve struggled financially at times. José’s father, Ricardo, juggled multiple jobs. To cope with the stress, Ricardo turned to alcohol. “The worst part of my drinking is that I’ve left good jobs where they’ve paid well, but I quit because of my addiction,” Ricardo said. The family stayed afloat during those tough times because of José’ mother, Isabel, who works at a hospital. The family of five lives in Koreatown in a one-bedroom apartment. José jokes that he “learned to study with noise.” Over the course of his life, he’s also learned how to manage a busy schedule. Every day, he wakes up between 5 and 5:30 a.m. so that he can arrive at water polo practice by 6 a.m., which runs for an hour and a half. He then begins school at 8 a.m. After school, he participates in a mentor program. In a December 2016 video announcing him as one of the recipients of the California Beat the Odds Scholarship, José’s classmates thanked him for selflessly devoting his time to helping them with chemistry, pre-calculus, and even with college applications. immigration education

America, Children, and Energy: The eyes are the gateway to the soul @chaka bars What are we? These vessels of carbon & cells... We are not these vessels. These thoughts of our place in the universe, how we are the universe and yet we observe ourselves... We are not these thoughts. The liquid that sustains our existence in this current form, made of Hydrogen & Oxygen, we drink it every day, it allows us to regenerate... We are not merely liquid. These electronic devices that I am writing this on, you are reading this on and that is connecting electrically to an Atmosphere, where we share this air, almost as if the energy that is being conducted was created by the device itself, but it is just channelling energy created by the universe, harnessed by other energy sources. We are not these devices. These ideologies devoid of spirit, of sexism, racism, capitalism, classism and all of the isms-systems that support the separation of self from spirit. We are not these ideologies. We are the universal, the realms are all interwoven, spiritual, physical, mental, it is all one. You can look through your pupils but you will only see with your third eye. Vision comes when you accept your ancestors & acknowledge that you are here for your children's children. You are not your thoughts, you are awareness of these thoughts. You are not feelings, they are not you, it is just energy that you are channelling. You do not own anything, even the air you breathe in must be exhaled. The phone you hold in your hand, made from minerals mined by Africans, who make $1 per day, assembled in China & distributed from North America by Europeans who have enough money to start countries...All in the name of capitalism. You are not capitalism, you are not racism, you are not sexism, you are not classism. Money, what is money, just energy so why do we try to hold on to it. Why do we try to hoard this energy?? This energy will destroy us. When you buy into materialism it is not money you are paying with, but hours of collective existence that we will never get back. Remember this for you are not money. You are a soul... Do what is good for your soul. chakabars

So now many of us live in a parallel world, right next to the world of which we were born... Before the Internet became a place to live. Our children young, unborn & growing will never know the world we grew up in because technology changed it. This technology is such an integral part of our lives, that is literally shaping our conscious existences. All of these computers are based on brains without empathetic neurones. So they can't love, yet soon the Artificial intelligence will rule the world & we will celebrate them as products of our own trivial creation. This is what we are calling success, capitalism, materialism, pseudo intellectual religions run by males who want to control females, as they destroy the feminine energy within themselves, all for profit based on the suffering of Mother Nature & her inhabitants. What happened to knowledge? All I see is spiritually devoid technologies. The more I read the more complex the human seems, & the more I fear that destruction is inevitable. We aren't all going to make it. People are so disconnected from source & spirit that they murder themselves through food, poisons & self loathing. Let alone those who perpetuate structural violence, masturbating their self entitlement. Right now I can't see an end to this downward spiral of evil evolving, apart from an uninhabitable planet, as mother will cleanse herself of our egos & neglect for her... We belong to her, not the other way around. I look into a child's eyes & see such beauty, hopeful love & dependancy on reciprocal love. All I can do is hope, spread love&resistance to those fighting spiritual battles, those who seek to kill everything for a profit that they can't take with them, all the while we worship prophets that they will try to take out. We continue to celebrate the dead, some of us live in comfort based on the suffering of others, while others suffer until they return to the spirit world, maybe retiring there forever, maybe returning to this world to try & create positive change. I'm not sure what the future holds for my unborn children, but I will try to make it beautiful. Rest assured you can live & die on the internet, but I'll try not to chakabars

Memes, Kiss, and Travel: Self-help How to stop time: kiss. How to travel in time: read How to escape time: music. How to feel time: write. How to release time: breathe. Let the fire burn... Don't be afraid of the burning you feel inside your heart, What do you think creates your being, Fire began your start... Passion and fire keeps life turning, multiplied energy keeps us alive, If it wasn't for creations yearning, The life would have died inside, Without a burning ball of gas you and I would surely not survive, Embody all that you feel, for the purpose of life, is life longing for itself, But a life without emotion, is a life devoid of wealth, Some repress their burning that they think they get, Mistaking it for rage and lack of self respect, Yet it is only life that we have right now and continue to protect, Nobody fights to look after death when all is gone and nothing left, "Why are we here?"... Is analysed, scrutinised and still we will dissect, Trying to explain our feelings, The vibrations quantified, by our connected vessels within our connected vessel and seen through our third eyes, Perceived by the overwhelming experience of what it is to be, Channel that passion for life and more to come, Realise every energy manifests our destiny, And everyday might be your last, Yet today you are still young, As right now is all we have... And we can't keep forever, for that is for the future, unborn, Accept the moment for what it is, embrace it for as you do you keep the fire alive, The same fire that is your own existence, The same infinite energy continues to provide, Even though we are mostly made of liquid, We are solidly woven into the fabric of a gas, as we inhale inspiration and exhale expectation, we realise that time has passed. chakabars

Memes, Unapologetic, and 🤖: British foreign policy: invite the guy on the left to tea with the Queen. Keep the kid on the right out of the country at all costs. "You're too intense" Why because I'm not afraid to discuss world issues? I call people on their bullsh*t I practice what I preach I am unapologetic and fearless I live my truth I don't hide behind an image or my insecurities... "She talks too much" Really, because when you speak your opinion it's ok, but you marginalise hers She points out whenever you are allowing your pseudo intellectual prejudices, to interfere with being a decent human being... She won't let you think you are better than her, just because you were born with a penis "Just get over it" What just like you got over Hitler? Or do you not want to be honest and admit that you are racist, your whole existence is conflicted, the only reason you have anything is because you stole it, your food, labour, resources, technologies, civilisation, existence hasn't come to you peacefully, people commit murder and colonisation everyday on your behalf in "foreign" countries, yet you have the cheek to say "go back to your own country" when most of the things you claim to be your culture, like tea, curries, sugar, alcohol and tobacco were stolen, grown on stolen land that you never gave back, and the rest of your culture is, violence, war and bullsh*t... The football you love would be sh*t without Africans, so would the baseball, basketball and nearly every sport we have been allowed to play. "They hating because they broke" Oh because structural violence has been carried out on all of their ancestors, they have been born into poverty so you can have sh*t you don't need. They are pissed that your love for material items, means that people in their family will die. They mad because you've decided that you are better than them because, for whatever f*ckry reason you came out of a vagina that got penetrated by a greedy, spiritually devoid shell of a creature, who conspires against those with less so that you can have so much, that you end up strung out on drugs, fast cars, paying for sex, handbags made of dead cow and alcohol. Be kind always 😅 chakabars

Memes, Oxygen, and Ideology: "To feel satisfied with what you have, that is the ultimate wealth Not to crave or be attached to anything at all, that is the ultimate happiness." What are we? These vessels of carbon & cells... We are not these vessels. These thoughts of our place in the universe, how we are the universe and yet we observe ourselves... We are not these thoughts. The liquid that sustains our existence in this current form, made of Hydrogen & Oxygen, we drink it every day, it allows us to regenerate... We are not merely liquid. These electronic devices that I am writing this on, you are reading this on and that is connecting electrically to an Atmosphere, where we share this air, almost as if the energy that is being conducted was created by the device itself, but it is just channelling energy created by the universe, harnessed by other energy sources. We are not these devices. These ideologies devoid of spirit, of sexism, racism, capitalism, classism and all of the isms-systems that support the separation of self from spirit. We are not these ideologies. We are the universal, the realms are all interwoven, spiritual, physical, mental, it is all one. You can look through your pupils but you will only see with your third eye. Vision comes when you accept your ancestors & acknowledge that you are here for your children's children. You are not your thoughts, you are awareness of these thoughts. You are not feelings, they are not you, it is just energy that you are channelling. You do not own anything, even the air you breathe in must be exhaled. The phone you hold in your hand, made from minerals mined by Africans, who make $1 per day, assembled in China & distributed from North America by Europeans who have enough money to start countries...All in the name of capitalism. You are not capitalism, you are not racism, you are not sexism, you are not classism. Money, what is money, just energy so why do we try to hold on to it. Why do we try to hoard this energy?? This energy will destroy us. When you buy into materialism it is not money you are paying with, but hours of collective existence that we will never get back. Remember this for you are not money.

Memes, Football Games, and Violent: Strong men aren't violent towards women, weak men are chakabars For all the men out there whose ideas of what it is to be a man, have been influenced by psychopaths... Sometimes it's okay to cry Sometimes it's ok to admit you are scared It's normal to be lead by women It's cool to have the respect of women as well the respect of men You don't need to deal with every situation with your temper, you don't always need to shout to be heard There are right & wrong times to use force, all of the time is not a normal way of dealing with life It's ok to say to a woman, I don't have a clue, can you teach me It's okay to admit you are wrong I seek advice from women daily You need guidance from women They aren't merely sex objects for your consumption Many men have been taught what a man is, by males who treat women like sh*t Being spiritually devoid isn't a good thing I used to be there, I saw my mum abused by my dad when I was a child, then from about 13-23 I went on to treat women like they were just there for sex. She didn't teach me that, men did I know that I was wrong... I have changed I have never put my hands on a woman & I will never For all of the men reading this who feel insecure, it's ok, but don't come with the weak argument, what if a woman hits you first, that's a rare thing & usually it's because of something you have done. There is no such thing as reverse sexism, don't hide behind your insecurities, don't project them on to me or women. Doing the washing up, cooking the food, cleaning up, raising your children properly are all parts of being a man. If she tries to emasculate you then calmly tell her that you don't need her social conditioning, taught by sexist men to interfere with your relationship between you both. I have been called a pussy & a bitch by a partner when she lost her temper, she was also violent to me... I shouted but I would never hit her, I moved on. I'm still a man & I'm not in jail or facing a court case I still have my dignity It's cleansing to share your emotions, only getting emotional at a football game will leave you feeling empty with life Your life is emotional, it's what makes you human. Sometimes it's ok to cry chakabars

Confidence, Disappointed, and Memes: The truth is, most people don't ever start because they don't want to be seen starting at the bottom Don't be most people. THINK GROW PROSPER It doesn't take much to change the destiny of a human life forever. When you love someone you will try to do your very best for them, even if they think they hate you right now. I've seen lives destroyed by let downs & disappointments. Are you there for other souls? You know that you could have helped them but you didn't, why? If you are still thinking about why, help them now, or regret will haunt you until the day you die. The people who believed in me have made me who I am today. Not the people who didn't. "Do it for all of the people who said you couldn't" doesn't work if everyone is against you. Confidence is a fragile thing, it's like a plant. It first requires a seed, this seed can come in the form of a teacher, parent, lover, friend. Even an Instagram post. It requires fertile mineral rich soil. This soil is the physical environment, the foods that they are consuming, the information & knowledge they are receiving from their elders, friends & family that sets them up for victory or failure. Support from a community of their peers. The love that they received or were lacking at home. Next is the water, the books they are reading, the schooling they are getting, be it education of self love & self beauty or the successes that they are shown, the positive reinforcement. Support from others. In order for the confidence to grow they must have access to the necessary amount of water. Last they need the sun. What is the sun, well it's an infinite energy supply, I say infinite, maybe one day it will die, but not while life exists...These are the ancestors that we came through, the life all around us, existence itself, the resistance against oppression, the love that keeps us from being spiritually devoid, some are but don't know why, they just need to look to the sun & find hope, reason for being, a higher intelligent energy, the technology that we are, the fact that we create our reality as our reality simultaneously creates us. Without all of this there is no confidence. Remember this when your friend is starting a business. Remember this when your partner is trying to get in shape. Remember this when a child comes to you asking you to read chakabars

Memes, Music, and Pregnant: WHITE PEOPLE BELIKE GOTTA HELPTHEMINORITIES I don't like the term white people. It's an invented race. Europeans are broken down into Italians, German, English, Spaniards, etc. White makes them sound united & more than they are. Not all Europeans colonised the globe after they came out of the caves, many were poor & never traveled anywhere, they were enslaved by their governments, as some of their governments set about enslaving the world. Then when the colonisers went around the world raping women with melanin, if they stayed around long enough they would realise that their children didn't look like them. They used to lynch and castrate African men because they fears them impregnating European women and wiping out this "white" race. The Arabs weren't exempt, during the Tran Saharan enslavement of Africans, Arabs used to castrate every African man that they stole to force to fight in their armies in the "holy wars" 1 in 5 survived, as for the women they kidnapped to have as concubines (sex slaves), if they fell pregnant they would murder their babies. What needs to be said is though, Europeans on the whole are at a negative birth rate. Africans & Indians & Chinese are at a positive birth rate. Why do you think that some Europeans are always whining about overpopulation. The globe is being populated by people who don't look like them. It is being populated in the countries the darker people are indigenous to, where all of the resources are. African Genes are biologically superior, (music, physically, communication, Architecture, food, cultures, health, medicine (they haven't cured the common cold! etc, the "modern" advances in technology are spiritually devoid, space age started in ancient African Egypt) that's why when you mix African with European you still get African. Africans can make "white" (Albanism-melanin deficiency) Europeans cant make black (actually black, Melanated) Brown & black people globally you are the majority, eventually the world will be brown & black, the sun is pro melanin, even the cold is pro Melanin, the Inuits are melanated people's & they live in the coldest places that humans have cultures. Time will tell us what will become of the "minority's" & the majorities. chakabars

Ether, Memes, and Forbes: "I like people with depth. I like those who have deep thoughts, fierce passions, dreams, goals, and ambition." What is this life, did I ask to be born here, in this place, at this time. I came here out of the ether, my being materialised through time, a biological process we call it creation. I forget to mention that time is a concept, so is existence. They say I think therefore I am, but am I really here? I'll let you know when I know I'm dead. Are we living lives devoid of spiritually, apathetic mentalities, perpetuating pathetic municipalities, economic realities breeding nothing but fatalities. I have been put here to change this system of living, more than a project page on justgiving, for those who vote away decision, sieving permission to those on a mission & make sure petitions remain a prescription, for hypothetical incisions in political contradiction. They are not right those who we have put in charge, these bloated psychopaths, need bloodbaths, & big gaffs, we kiss ass, they teach more mathematics that they made up, it's time we start fixing up. They steal from us the working people, I feel we have a love for evil. We ask them to control how we exist, by giving away power are you taking from this, the Forbes list should be dismissed, yet we still deify financial bliss. Don't be hopeless, or hope they notice, take back ownership of life we owe this, to all the mothers with starving children, for all those who slave their own occupied lands, while business tycoons rake in thousands of grands, for all the congolese who had severed hands, all women whose vaginas were sold on demand, & for all lives that became bodies sold for their organs, while Rockefellers murdered some poor souls out of boredom. We owe this to ourselves, so spread this message by word of mouth, this planet is nearly finished with, the rich, & we have diminished it. Some will turn their backs trying not to receive it, living a material dream but having to be asleep to believe it.
