ruxiecat121: love-buckybarnes: A group of people were traveling in a boat. One of them took a drill and began to drill a hole beneath himself. His companions said to him: “Why are you doing this?” Replied the man: “What concern is it of yours? Am I not drilling under my own place?” Said they to him: “But you will flood the boat for us all!” (Quoted in Midrash Rabbah, Vayikra 4:6). It’s basically saying how one person’s action has a ripple affect of other people, much like the domino effect, one bad deed will affect many lives in a negative way. There’s a saying I learned a long time ago as a child. I didn’t understand it as well then as I do now.“Your freedom to swing your arm stops the moment your arm hits my face.” : ruxiecat121: love-buckybarnes: A group of people were traveling in a boat.

I want 3 animations for my twitch channel (thumbs up, wave and blowing a kiss) and 3 badges. My character reterence is here Hi there! I'm afraid S50 is way to low for that amount of work. The animations alone, depending on how smooth you're wanting, would be between $40-S60 each. I'm actually incredibly busy with work right now and have a queue, so it might be better to look elsewhere for someone who's more free to complete your commissions for you:). (NOTE: tattoo MUST be correct, its incredibly sentimental). $50 This would be a great opportunity for you, I have many followers and you'd get a lot of fresh eyes on your work! Depending on how well you do, this could be the start of many future projects from me and I'm willing to throw in a couple of rts on your art to help you out also. ??? I wasn't offering to pay you, I was giving you the offer of paying me to be your promoter lol It's very reasonable fee given how big my channel is going to get. $45 is the lowest I'm willing to go, it's more than generous.

madnessofmen:only address me as The Friend from now on: Public Universal Friend The Public Universal Friend (born Jemima Wilkinson; November 29, 1752 – July 1, 1819), was born as an English- American to a Quaker family on Rhode Island, and was assigned female at birth. This person suffered a severe illness in 1776 (age 24), and reported having died and been reanimated by the power of God as a genderless evangelist named the Public Universal Friend. The Friend refused to answer any A portrait of the Public Universal a longer to the previous name, Friend, from the Friend's biography Jemima Wilkinson, (1 quoted Luke written by David Hudson in 1821. 23:3 ("thou sayest it") when visitors asked if it was the name of the person they were addressing, and ignored or chastised those who insisted on using it. The preacher shunned the name "Jemima" completely, having friends hold realty in trust rather than see the name on deeds and titles. Even when a lawyer insisted that the person's Will should identify its subject as having been born under the name Jemima, the preacher refused to sign that name, only making an X which others witnessed, even though the Friend could read and write.2) The Friend asked not to be referred to with gendered pronouns. Followers respected these wishes, avoiding gender-specific pronouns even in private diaries, and referring only to "the Public Universal Friend" or short forms such as "the Friend" or "P.U.F."3] madnessofmen:only address me as The Friend from now on

financialeconomicsexplainedus: POSTED:  10/09/2019 The Stock market, as well as the overall economy, moves between a boom and bust cycle - it basically moves between growth and value investing - it is that simple! After a recession, when the whole stock market cycle, the business cycle and the credit cycle have gone bust:  interest rates are low to super low, the Fed is trying to stimulate the economy - Investors start to look at Growth Stocks/ Growth-Oriented Mutual Funds (a growth stock is one that generally averages about 20% growth per year along with the technology sectors like semiconductors and Biotech/Pharmaceuticals)….. Small Cap stocks/Mutual Funds also take off - money is cheap to borrow to fund R&D, marketing expenses, etc. But Value stocks/Mutual Funds also start to rise:  A RISING TIDE LIFTS ALL BOATS - was the 90′s moniker! Hence, the market starts to take off:  as markets start to heat up and the economy starts to OVERHEAT - the Fed starts to raise interests to COOL the market down - like in November 1999 - the Fed had raised the Federal Funds rate way up to a whopping 6.5% to try and cool down the economy and to put a damper on the Dot.com Boom - fueled stock market!  Those who forget history do not recall that the yield curve inverted in 1998; the Federal Funds rate was too high in 1999 (FYI side note:  the “average” technology mutual fund in 1999 was up 100%!!!!!!!!!!!! by years’ end)  Guess what?  The whole market crashed in April 2000! So from that time to about mid-June 2000 - the market went nowhere!   Value investing and investing in Bonds (like Intermediate and Long-term Treasury Bonds (backed by the full faith of the US government) went up from June 2000 to December 2000 (Berkshire Hathaway A shares went up over 85% that year within 6 months!).  Warren Buffet?  Look him up!  Treasuries also did extremely well - like one “Talking Head” has been quoted as saying - “There is always a Bull Market somewhere”…… And the whole process starts over again from a boom to bust cycle, about every 10 years or so……the Real Estate Market moves in a boom to bust cycle about every 7 years…. MY OPINION – stay the course with Value-oriented Investing:  it works in both up and down markets!  A mix of Value Mutual Funds and Treasury Bond Mutual Funds weather ALL storms - OVER THE LONG HAUL - and yes, expect a few hiccups along the way too LOL!)….Exchange Traded Funds (ETF’s) investing will work too - but, I like Mutual Funds - the minimums are $3,000.00 however (at least) to start investing in a SINGLE fund.  DO YOUR RESEARCH/DUE DILIGENCE ON THE WEB and also on YOU TUBE! Guys - the overall stock market climbs in a stair-step fashion:  up, then sideways/down and then up again!  Invest for the long term (like 30-50+ years)….YOU WILL BE A WINNER!  Be it an investment account or a retirement account or BOTH:  like a personal investment account and a ROTH IRA or an employer-sponsored 401k Plan along with a personal investment account.

CURRENT MARKET :  MY OPINION Me personally, I am accumulating cash and letting my current investment portfolio just ride along with this geo-politically fueled/baseless rate cut economic environment …Impeachment talks, China Trade War escalation, Iran concerns, Saudi Arabia bombings, Japan-South Korea tensions as well as renewed North Korea tension over prior failed talks, the American Farmers plight due to the trade war, negative return/yield rates on European Bonds, Brexit concerns, a dollar that is too strong, etc. When American companies start to cut back, lay people off, these people can not keep spending to keep GDP/the economy growing, then these people can not pay their mortgages/auto loans/credit cards….Will it be “somewhat” similar to 2008… all over again?

prolifeproliberty: metalcatholic: danthesantana: metalcatholic: atheist-freethinker: https://www.no-gods-no-masters.com/anti-religion-atheist-shirts-C84733/ Apollo 11 Astronaut Buzz Aldrin took communion on the moon Apollo 8 astronauts read from Genesis when in orbit Roger B. Chaffee (Died in Apollo 1 fire) is quoted as saying  “The world itself looks cleaner and so much more beautiful. Maybe we can make it that way—the way God intended it to be—by giving everybody that new perspective from out in space” James Irwin (Apollo 15) wrote “Being on the moon had a profound spiritual impact upon my life. Before I entered space with the Apollo 15 mission in July of 1971, I was a lukewarm Christian, to say the least! I was even a silent Christian, but I feel the Lord sent me to the moon so I could return to the earth and share his Son, Jesus Christ.” John Glenn the first American to orbit the Earth told reporters  “To look out at this kind of creation and not believe in God is to me impossible. It just strengthens my faith.” These are just a few examples of astronauts that had faith in God. I’m not here to start a debate. Just to say I feel it’s a bit disingenuous to tie in scientific discoveries with a lack of faith when some of the key people in those discoveries clearly had strong beliefs in some form of a higher power. Also the quote is attributed to yuri gagarin the first man in space, however, wether he actually said that0 he saw no god in space is highly disputed, and he may have even been a convinced Christian.

NO-GODS-NO-MASTERS.COM prolifeproliberty: metalcatholic: danthesantana: metalcatholic: atheist-freethinker: https://www.no-gods-no-masters.com/anti-religion-atheist-shirts-C84733/ Apollo 11 Astronaut Buzz Aldrin took communion on the moon Apollo 8 astronauts read from Genesis when in orbit Roger B. Chaffee (Died in Apollo 1 fire) is quoted as saying  “The world itself looks cleaner and so much more beautiful. Maybe we can make it that way—the way God intended it to be—by giving everybody that new perspective from out in space” James Irwin (Apollo 15) wrote “Being on the moon had a profound spiritual impact upon my life. Before I entered space with the Apollo 15 mission in July of 1971, I was a lukewarm Christian, to say the least! I was even a silent Christian, but I feel the Lord sent me to the moon so I could return to the earth and share his Son, Jesus Christ.” John Glenn the first American to orbit the Earth told reporters  “To look out at this kind of creation and not believe in God is to me impossible. It just strengthens my faith.” These are just a few examples of astronauts that had faith in God. I’m not here to start a debate. Just to say I feel it’s a bit disingenuous to tie in scientific discoveries with a lack of faith when some of the key people in those discoveries clearly had strong beliefs in some form of a higher power. Also the quote is attributed to yuri gagarin the first man in space, however, wether he actually said that0 he saw no god in space is highly disputed, and he may have even been a convinced Christian. Well I don’t think the soviet union took to kindly to any religion so that info doesn’t surprise me. I was trying to figure out if op had a source but couldn’t. Also even if he did say that, I don’t know any Christian who would expect to see God just kind of hanging out in orbit around the earth… Everyone knows God floats about in space like Princess Leia in The Last Jedi

lolzandtrollz:Something You Probably Didn’t Know About The Princess Bride: PRINCESS THE BRIDE TIDBITS HELLO. MY NAME IS INIGO MONTOYA You killed me father Prepare to die The director believes "My name is Inigo Montoya, you killed my father, prepare to die" is the most-quoted line from any of his movies (the other contenders being, "I'll have what she's having," and "You can't handle the truth!"). Reiner spoke of how Christopher Guest disappears so well into a role that he didn't even remember Guest being in the film. When he saw the actor at the premiere party, Reiner's first thought was of how nice it was of his friend to come out and support him, having forgotten that Guest played a part (Count Rugen aka the Six-fingered Man). Billy Crystal (Miracle Max) came up with many of his own lines, including "Why don't you give me a nice paper cut to pour lemon juice on it," and the "mutton, lettuce and tomato sandwich For the opening scene, Goldman originally wanted Jimmy Stewart in the Peter Falk role, but was happy with Falk. If Jewison had made the film, he planned the opening scene with an immigrant carrying a sick child up the stairs of a tenement building. William Goldman, author of the book, said he's not good on sets and related the story of how, even though he wrote the scene in both the book and the script, when he saw Buttercup's dress catch fire, he shrieked, "Her dress is on firel" effectively ruining the scene. Westley's mustache was Cary Elwes' idea, he thought it would give the character swashbuckling flair. During the scene between Westley and the Six-fingered Man, Cary Elwes told Christopher Guest to go on and hit him; Guest clocked him on the head so hard that Elwes had to go to the hospital. The shots of the Cliffs of Insanity are a mix of matte paintings and the actual location: the Cliffs of Moher in County Clare, Ireland. When he wrote the book, Goldman envisioned André the Giant in the role of Fezzik. you should probably go to TheMetaPicture.com lolzandtrollz:Something You Probably Didn’t Know About The Princess Bride

But when they make you feel unwelcome, why would I stay there?” ___ Trump and Theresa May spoke in a joint press conference. In the story covered by The Sun, Trump commented on the Prime Minister’s negotiations in leaving the European Union and was quoted saying that May “didn’t listen” to his suggested approach to Brexit.

People are hell.: daddynietzsche throwback to that time in my existentialism class where the professor asked who thinks hell is other people' and half the class slowly and meekly put their hand up then the prof was like ..i mean who originally said it annabellioncourt there are some posts that sound utterly made up for the joke or for the notes, but this one I whole heartedly believe kurloz38 Sounds right to me.. jadagul That quote is amazing to me in that it's quoted completely accurately and yet in a way that means something completely different from what it meant in context. Sartre was claiming that Hell was other people. He was not claiming that other people were hell.) sigmaleph . can't actually tell what distinction you're drawing there. Can you expand? jadagul The line comes from No Exit, which is set in Hell Spoilers for No Exit follow In particular, three people who have been condemned to hell are trapped eternally in a room together. And at first they think they got off easy without any pitch- forks or fiery lakes or anything. But over the course of the play they discover that they have been chosern very specifically to have neuroses and character flaws that interact with and torment each other Each one needs the approval of a second in an unsta ble RPS cycle so that any time one of them might be satisfied by a second, the third swoops in and ruins it And when they figure this out, one of the characters expresses his understanding, that hell isn't physical torture. "Hell is just-other people." So the point isn't that other people, generically are hellish; it's rather that you can build a hell out of other people But when I hear people quote it, it's usually sort of an introvert-pride thing. "Other people are hell; you should spend time alone." And that's not the point at all. It's a statement about how bad unhealthy relationships can be, not a statement about how all relationships are unhealthy! See also Sartre's own comment here "hell is other people" has always been misuhderstoo as been though that what I meant by that was that our relations with other people are always poisoned, that they are invariably hellish relations. But what I really mean is something totally different. I mean that if relations with someone else are twisted, vitiated, then that other person can only be hell. diapordias Reblogging for the original post which was hilarious and also for that explanation which is beautiful Source: daddynietzsche People are hell.
