1. It’s hard to explain, but for me it’s that the sense of being part of some story where you are the protagonist kind of fizzles out unceremoniously and leaves you drifting for the rest of forever.

As a kid, you’re on a path, there’s a plan laid out for you, and whether you intentionally break from the plan or follow it to the letter, there’s this linear progression of growth, and an ultimate goal to strive for. You have allies, you have enemies, you have trials that you pass or fail, you have moments of catharsis, etc. You feel like part of a beautiful narrative, like the heroes in movies and books and tv shows and stories. You feel like there’s a right and a wrong way to go, and some ultimate fate waiting for you at the end that will sum up what all of it meant.

And This Is Why You Shouldn’t Smoke Crack

June 27, 2019 | No Comments » | Topics: TRUTH |

I just spent 2 hours searching the nooks and crannies of every inch of floor in this bitch. Between the couches, around the car, fucking everywhere. It brought me back to my teenage years, where I’d do the same thing for weed. Only then, it wasn’t accompanied with absolute desperation and pain. I just thought I was having a bad day, and that one hit is actually all it’d take to calm me down for awhile.

The entire time with this chest clenching, damn near painful angst that just fucking BEGS you for “one more hit. That’s all I need baby, just one more”

That bitch is a liar. Even if you get that one more, all you’re doing is restarting your come down clock.

yulin dog meat festival

Every year the southern city of China, Yulin celebrates the summer solstice with a festival that involves the slaughter and consumption of as many as 10,000 dogs.

Days before the start of the festival, animal rights activists in China have rescued 62 dogs from being slaughtered and eaten.

According to Humane Society International (HSI), a group of Chinese activists, who wish to remain anonymous, they found the frightened dogs in a dirty slaughterhouse. The dogs were in a terrible state, showing signs of malnourishment and dehydration.

Footage released by HSI reveal many of the dogs were the sort of small breeds popular among Chinese pet owners. Some were still wearing their collars, a chilling reminder of the many beloved pets in China snatched each year by dog meat traders.

The Story Of A Man Who Killed Himself After Losing 15,000 Bitcoin

Do not take this as criticism of Bitcoin, blockchain technology, or cryptocurrency users & developers, it’s not.

There are probably other factors that led to my brother’s suicide, but he had been beating himself up over Bitcoin for the past several years to the point where he seemed constantly depressed over it and gradually became a shadow of his former happy self.

He claimed to have owned 15,000 at one point, which may have been an exaggeration. But I know for a fact that at some point around October-November 2012 he did have at least 6,000 BTC which he showed me in his wallets. He was so enthusiastic about Bitcoin and how cryptocurrencies would revolutionize the financial world. For awhile he was annoying the fuck out of our relatives about how it would make them millionaires.

12 People Who Survived Suicide Reveal Their Last Thoughts Before Attempting To Take Their Own Lives

1. Tried to overdose on Oxycontin, last thoughts were immediate regret after I pushed the plunger on the syringe all the way down, all I felt was remorse and sadness that I wouldn’t be alive anymore. Woke up 20-24 hours later extremely grateful to be alive and got help with my drug addiction, now 4 year sober on 8/14.

 

2. I have severe depression and never knew what genuine happiness felt like until I was 17 and on meds from the hospital after my suicide attempt, it was so overwhelming I just started sobbing in the car with my mom, out of nowhere.

Anyway, I had taken a bottle of Xanax when my mom left for church, it wasn’t planned I was just at my mental breaking point and panicked, I sat in the kitchen floor and I felt an overwhelming sense of euphoria, I just kept thinking ‘it’s over. It’s over. It’s over’

I didn’t regret it until my mom found me because she turned around after realizing she left something at home, I will never forgive myself for putting her through that. I’m 24 and the memory of her crying and tell me she loved me and she was sorry still haunts me. I have a lump in my throat just typing this.

Relevant quote from American Gods

There are accounts that, if we open our hearts to them, will cut us too deeply. Look — here is a good man, good by his own lights and the lights of his friends: he is faithful and true to his wife, he adores and lavishes attention on his little children, he cares about his country, he does his job punctiliously, as best he can. So, efficiently and good-naturedly, he exterminates Jews: he appreciates the music that plays in the background to pacify them; he advises the Jews not to forget their identification numbers as they go into the showers — many people, he tells them, forget their numbers, and take the wrong clothes when they come out of the showers. This calms the Jews. There will be life, they assure themselves, after the showers. Our man supervises the detail taking the bodies to the ovens; and if there is anything he feels bad about, it is that he still allows the gassing of vermin to affect him. Were he a truly good man, he knows, he would feel nothing but joy as the earth is cleansed of its pests.

F**k Everything About This!

April 18, 2019 | No Comments » | Topics: TRUTH |

I met my wife when we were in highschool and we married in college. We have 5 beautiful children together – really, I consider them a total blessing regardless of what I’m about to bring up – and up until a couple of weeks ago I thought that we had the perfect marriage. We were typical highschool sweet hearts, we go out together, we never fight, I feel like I’ve done everything a loving husband should do. I am saying this not to make myself out as the perfect husband, for example my work has always meant I work long hours and maybe haven’t always been there when she needed me, but I want to stress that I’ve never felt our marriage was in any trouble. And never in a million years would I ever have suspected my wife of being disloyal – she’s always done everything she could to support me and take care of our children.
