Apparently, Definitely, and Family: Me [25F] with my boyfriend [25M] of seven months. He has VERY bizarre opinions and I want help understanding him, and getting him to understand how others see him Relationships submitted 7 hours ago by throwaway47273747483 have been with my boyfriend, Henry, for around 7 months now, and he's an amazing guy etc. I really see this developing into a long and very serious relationship. There are no big problems or red flags. One thing that gets me though, are his political opinions. They are esoteric, somewhat incomprehensible, and frankly, bizarre. He is an ardent monarchist (we are in the UK) but not in the typical use of the word (ie liking the Queen being an impartial head of state), he literally believes in the divine right of kings and that it is the only natural form of government. He claims to recognise no monarch since James ll, and apparently the real legitimate successor is some guy called Francis who I've never heard of, who is also supposedly the rightful king of France and Greece. He never votes, saying he has no desire to assist his monarch in their choice of servants (which is technically how the UK government works, the Queen "chooses" whoever wins the election). He expressed disgust at Prince Harry's recent engagement, I pressed him as to why (I was slightly worried it was racist in nature) and he said both Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton are commoners who have no business marrying royalty, then made some remark about the Royal Family being a "ghastly bunch of arriviste Germans anyway, so I suppose it doesn't matter". It's just strange. It's like his worldview is so odd and so far removed from anything I can even begin to understand. I can name the current major Royals and a few of the more important historical ones, whereas he is an absolute expert. He will passionately debate anyone who wants to, though again it just makes him look strange. Friends at dinner will be discussing normal, contemporary political issues, and he will interject and go on some tangent about how this all relates to "King John's submission to Papal authority in 1213". He does seem to genuinely believe this stuff, but it gives an odd impression to those around us. No one can really reply beecause they don't know what he's talking about so he definitely gets the feeling he's winning these debates (he's far too well-mannered to be rude about it, but it's certainly an unspoken truth in his view) tikkunolamorgtfo: TFW your boyfriend is a 17th Century Catholic vampire who is NOT OVER™ the Glorious Revolution of 1688.

A lot of people today have extremely limited understanding of how anything rural works, thinking only of animals in the abstract. Hence people who don’t understand that cows can continue to give milk way longer than their calves need it, or that you don’t have to kill sheep to get their wool, or who think that a good way to save the bees is for everyone to stop eating honey. Like, if people don’t want to eat meat because they don’t want animals killed, and want to avoid eggs because of the cruelty prevalent in that industry, or milk because yeah, there are a fair number of issues with the dairy industry too… I will support that 100%. But then there are people so woefully misinformed I can’t take them seriously at all. its baffling- if you assume wool requires a sheep to be killed, thus each sheep in its lifetime will only provide one ‘crop’ of wool, then how freaking expensive would you then assume yarn to be? youd assume mutton would then be exceedingly common in the meat market as wellthey make a logic tangent, and obviously abandon it two seconds after it passes where they want to go because thinking too hard will reveal that to be stupid I have discovered that usually, the most militant and unpleasant vegans absolutely have no fucking idea how farming works. Ecological, sustainable farming - not massive, planet-damaging, animal-torturing industrial farming. If you don’t know that sheep have to be sheared before summer or they can literally die of heat, I am not going to listen to you. If you don’t realise that it only makes sense to use leather from animals if you kill them to eat them and that your vegan ass buying cheap plastic shoes three times a year is doing more damage to the environment than me buying leather shoes every five years, I’m not going to listen to you. If you refuse to consider that cows’ udders get painful if they don’t have a calf and aren’t milked, I won’t listen to you. And if you don’t have the basic biology knowledge required to realise that properly, sustainably raised farm animals have their place in the biosystem and that it would not, in fact, be a good thing to stop raising them, I am not going to listen to you.  I was told by a vegan I am otherwise good friends with that “all farmers lie about everything to do with farming” and I just ???? do you have any idea how exhausting it is to fucking farm no one has the ENERGY to lie about stuff like “we need commercial bees as pass pollinators for fruit farms so you might as well eat honey tbh since they’re making an excess anyway” by all means campaign for safer and better slaughterhouses (which btw is a current hot-button issue in the uk and is something one of my clients is backing and pursuing legally) and better animal welfare and make a point of pushing high-welfare products over shitty ones but demanding that everyone stops buying wool coats on the basis of a lie is stupid because the alternative is artificial fibres which are polluting the fucking oceans and killing off all the fish This. We need to do better on animal welfare, as on so many things. But if you’re coming from a standpoint of ‘all farmers are evil soulless murderers’, then… I don’t really know how we’re going to have a conversation, so I’m going to politely back away.

Confused, Cookies, and Girls: Ask anything. Yahoo Answers Now Download on the asked in pets App Store I have a dog and a cat. Is it true that they have the same legal rights that Ihave? Do fish grieve the death of another fish? I had two goldfish in one tank and they seemed pretty close.. always swimming next to each other. Recently one of the goldfish died and was removed from... Update: Do you think i could reintroduce a new goldfish? Or would the current one not like that? 5 answers Fish Ads hey this is just something I've been wanting to address for a while and my mom actually brought it up and I decided to talk about it. So, a lot of people have asked me if I buy my followers (supposedly because my account grows so fast?). The answer is a resounding NO. I don't have the money to buy followers, and even if I did, wouldn't they all unfollow? on my personal account, whenI've found that I randomly am following certain big accounts with a one word title like "hoe" or "girls" (not those accounts specifically, if they even exist, (side note, why do so many big accounts have somewhat crude names? like hoeposts and slutposts and stuff? no hate, just confused)) and I unfollow them as soon as I see them. Wow that was a long tangent sorry lol, but anyway, I just want to say that no I don't buy followers. Also, the reason that I think my account grows so well is because I interact with you guys so much and I post so often. I reply to all of my DMs and I read almost all of your comments and I talk to so many of you guys all the time. I get a minimum of about 50 DMs a day and I spend my time talking to you guys because it's what I love doing. I started this account to share the happiness and fun that I found in my life and that's still the reason I run it. Speaking of that, I ran this account at 1,000 followers the same way I run it at 234,000 followers. Even if I only make one or two people happy, that still makes a difference right? When I only had my personal account, the memes in my feed always lifted my mood and I wanted to be someone who could do the same for others. That's the reason I don't care about how many followers I have, too. There could be just 20 followers here and I would still post and talk to you guys because that's what I love doing. I hope that cleared some stuff up for you maybe? Anyway, thanks for reading this!! ❤ cookies to all of you 🍪🍪🍪

Beard, Boobies, and Memes: Hey lil guy that's not your bed! @Dr Smashlove Ladies why do y'all text me like "hey what are you wearing tonight just curious". Nah. Hell nah. Don't u know my idol is Richard Gere in Pretty Woman? Imma meet u at the sushi joint in a suit. You should wear ripped jeans, short ass jean shorts, whatever comfortable and a lil trashy dammit just feel sexy. A couple ain't gotta match. It look sexy and spontaneous when a couple unmatchy AF. Be my Julia Roberts, u feel me? I'm not old enuf to be a sugar daddy yet but I love it when I'm out and people give me strange looks. "Wow, what's the story, why is he so dressed up, this doesn't make sense." I like to confuse and confound the people-watchers - they gon make up a story anyway so let me have fun with it 🤗. Bottom line: if your man wear a Kangol hat turned backward, a pencil beard, an Insane Clown Posse t shirt and Ed Hardy jeans, are you gonna wear - WAIT - THAT WAS A TRICK QUESTION - IN NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHOULD U DATE MEN WHO DRESS LIKE THIS 😂 - IF U DO, U HAVE MADE VERY BAD DECISIONS IN LIFE AND NEED TO CHANGE COURSE - COME TO CHICAGO AND I WILL ADOPT U AND HAVE U EATING RIGHT, EXERCISING AND LIVING RIGHT. AT THE APPROPRIATE TIME, WE CAN COMMENCE TATTOO REMOVAL TOO BECAUSE GOD KNOWS YOU GOT FIVE OR SIX OF THE MOST REGRETFUL TATTOOS KNOWN TO MAN, AT LEAST ONE (1) OF WHICH RESIDES ON YOUR UPPER LEFT BOOBY. THEY ALL NEED REMOVAL. HOW DID I GET ON THIS TANGENT. WHY AM I TYPING IN ALL CAPS. HAPPY FRIDAY YALL TURN UP 🤗😂😂😂

Be Like, Bless Up, and Dieting: Dog birthdays are the best birthdays!! Shout to u girls walking around the city in them slim fit Moncler and Canada Goose down coats I see y'all. Lil fine asses y'all think y'all slick. Y'all ain't slick at all. Smash got quadruple x ray vision. U could be wearing that coat over a sweater over another shirt over a bra and imma still be able to ascertain with only a quick glance whether or not I want u to bear my chirren. Them hats with the fur lining with the flappy ears? Them big Burberry scarves with the overcheck? None of that is slick. Smash got a radar for this shit. Y'all gotta remember - I do deals in the Middle East. I travel to a part of the world where I gotta sometimes make a snap judgment based on half an ankle and a half-revealed eyebrow whether a girl gorgeous or not. Y'all. Ain't. Slick. I swear I could judge a beauty contest where the girls wear burqas and I'd be like "Duanphen from Thailand bring your fine ass here u win the beauty contest I could tell by your strut that u fine AF" and then the burqas come off and bam, Smash was right, Ms. Thailand was indeed the winner. Nah but u know what fuck beauty contests. Beauty is more than that. It's not just physical. It's how a woman carry herself. It's how she talk. It's her intellect. It's her independence. It's whether if we're in a argument, she should ice cold slap me across the cheek - hard - and be like "I told you not to push my button" and I'm like "cot damn this woman assault and batteried me ok I deserved it but wow - she crazy, and high-key scary - I like it." How did I get on this tangent? All I'm saying is, regardless how thick your coat is, I see u. That holiday winter weight on your ass and hips looking right. Forget that new year resolution and lemme bury my face in it before u crash diet and start doing three spin classes per day for 'bikini weather'. Let smash enjoy it before it melts away. U dig!

Best Buy, College, and Community: Why you shouldn't trust Geek Squad ever again (networkworld.com) 3239 submitted 5 hours ago by CrankyBear 627 comments share save hide give gold report sorted by: best you are viewing a single comment's thread view the rest of the comments CornyHoosier 1934 points 3 hours ago The problem for most folks is that in many places there aren't a lot of technical people available. Geek Squad is the closest the IT world has to a Jiffy Lube I made good extra cash on the side in college off selling my technical services on Craig's List, but many older people don't know of or use that site At the old folks condos my grandmother was in (60+ yo residency "requirement" but not assisted living), I found these old people were getting taken to the cleaners by the Best Buy/Geek Squad that was in the "big city" 30 minutes away. These old folks may have just misplaced some files or gotten a little malware and the Geek Squad folks were talking them into full backups, reformats, os/Software installs to the tune of hundreds of dollars. Many of these people were on fixed retirement income so it wasn't pretty I ended up posting a flyer to bring all technology down to the main lobby once a month at a certain time and I'd repair or look at it for free. That first time I had a handful of folks, but the next month half the place was there. The condo employees even started setting up tables so everyone could lay their items down and have them on so I could hop around quickly My grandmother quickly became one of the most popular people there (which was good because she needed more friends) and as a kid right out college I appreciated the homemade snacks and food that was pushed my way. After a few years I decided to move away but didn't want to leave these folks high and dry. I got a hold of the local community college's CompSci instructors and asked if they'd could assist. Without any hesitation the guy agreed. I found out he has his students do it as apart of their grade (Sorry, went off on a tangent.
