15 Germans, Japanese And Italians Reveal What They Learned About WWII In School

February 21, 2018 | 2 Comments » | Topics: TRUTH |

1. German here, we learn as much as possible about it. The general atmosphere in Europe that led to the nazis rise to power, how they were able to take control of the government, the major battles and figures who are associated with the war and of course the holocaust.

Most schools include visits to at least one concentration camp during field excursions (I have been to Auschwitz, Buchenwald and Theresienstadt) and there is a very interesting art project called Stolperstein , which indicates where jews were persecuted in Germany.

In a nutshell, you know how Americans always say ‘Never forget’ when it comes to 9/11? Most Germans are like that with World War 2 and the holocaust.


2. Japanese high schooler here. Spent most of my elementary life and some of my middle school life in the US, went to middle school in Japan. I had to say that it wasn’t very great. We learned what caused it to happen including the sino-Japanese war and the Russo-Japanese war. However most of the actual war was turned stragetic. (Ex. Japan did (something) in (year) to (reason).) We did talk about how awful it was for the Japanese, the highlights being Tokyo, Hiroshima, and Nagasaki. It was said that we used Koreans and Chinese for slave labor, but it was skimmed a lot. Most people kind of know what we did to the Koreans and Chinese but never to the full extent and we don’t really talk about it. (Ex. The rape of Nanking) This is out of class, but every fucking summer the tv networks play the same it was miserable, we need peace, we hate war cliche. But they too don’t talk about what we did to the Koreans and Chinese to the full extent.



9 Functioning Drug Addicts Reveal How They Do It

February 7, 2018 | 1 Comment » | Topics: TRUTH |

1. The way I funded my opiate habit (5 years, clean 2 years) was by blowing my inheritance. Also, my friend who I used with sold them, which makes then more affordable as long as you stay on top of the hustle always (which is impossible). So, never had to rob anyone to pay for the habit.

The way I used functionally was to not take the biggest fucking dose every single time. If I had things to do, I would cut the dose back. As an addict, you fluctuate between Heaven and Hell depending on whether or not you can obtain drugs. If you have to do shit on Earth, you measure your dose to be in the middle. Yes, you can measure your dose…you do a test shot of the batch that you got and go from there. Also, you can judge the potency by observation when you know what it is supposed to be…but you always do a prudent dose when you don’t know.

So if I had somewhere to be, I did a reasonable dose that put me at about a 6 out of 10 and then did business in a pretty good mood. Opiates do not interfere with thought or coordination like alcohol…any fuck ups on opiates are about the same thing as if you were too sleepy, and happen because you took too much. Don’t take too much. Save that for the shot when you get home, and all that needs to be done is to nod off in front of the TV, or play WoW (level grinding is wonderful with smack).

A Day In The Life Of An Opiate Addict

January 31, 2018 | No Comments » | Topics: TRUTH |

The alarm goes off at 6:15 a.m., but I’ve already been half awake, tossing and turning for the last couple of hours. I slither out of bed, turn on the shower and stand in the mirror in my usual morning daze.

I don’t look into the mirror, why bother? My soul is gone, and I can’t stand the person looking back at me. Before brushing my teeth, I open the drawer and without hesitation, quick as I can, I grab a couple of pills. In one motion I swallow the “relief” and guzzle some water. I take a peak at the bottle. Oh no. I just had 120 last week, now I’m down to 20 or so. My heart begins pounding, my mind begins to race, and my entire body begins to sweat. Of course, I’ve been sweating for several hours because while I slept my withdrawals have begun. As I step into the shower I begin to wonder, where will I get more this time? Here we go again.

 I brace myself for the pain. I slowly get into the water and each drop is like a bullet at close range hitting my skin. Do I wash my hair? I know that is going to hurt even worse. I know this comes from the pain pills. What I will later learn is the pain comes from the lack of endorphins my body has stopped making. My achy body is an open canvas of raw nerves. I hurry through the shower, hoping the pills will kick in. As I dry off, I find myself fishing for more pills. I know I shouldn’t. I’m running low fast. But, as always, I can’t stop myself. This time, I grab two Norco (a pain pill) and one Soma (a muscle relaxer). I have to go to work soon so I don’t want to be too high. Oh, what the heck, one more muscle relaxer won’t hurt.

95% of egg-laying hens spend their lives in battery cages. Battery cages commonly hold 5–10 birds, and each chicken may be given an amount of floor space equivalent to less than a sheet of letter-size paper. Constantly rubbing against and standing on wire cages, hens suffer severe feather loss, and their bodies become covered with bruises and abrasions.

There were more than 5.8 million pigs used for breeding in the United States in 2011, most of whom were confined to gestation crates, typically lined up row after row in large sheds. These naturally curious and intelligent animals are first impregnated at 7 months of age and live out their lives in a cycle of pregnancy, birth, and nursing until they are eventually sent to slaughter.



19 Survivors Of Suicide Reveal Their First Thoughts After Realizing They Hadn’t Succeeded

January 4, 2018 | No Comments » | Topics: TRUTH |

1. “Fuck I’m still here”

 I almost don’t want to share this because I don’t know if it’s helpful for people who are going through it right now. But I’ve seen and read so many accounts of people who changed their mind when it seemed to be too late, or realised all their problems were insignificant once they were almost dead. But that didn’t happen to me.

When I started vomiting blood and bile, all I could think was “I really hope I’m not throwing up the pills right now”. I also felt disgusting and ashamed, but I didn’t want to live and I didn’t change my mind. When I woke up I was covered in blood (some from vomit, but a lot from my arms and legs which I’d absolutely shredded with a blade.) there was sick all over the floor and in my hair, and my clothes and face were wet with tears. I was a mess, and I felt like I’d fucked up my life in every possible way, and I have never felt so disappointed or disgusted with myself than when I properly realised it hadn’t worked.

Advice from a Dying 24 Year-Old

January 2, 2018 | No Comments » | Topics: TRUTH |

Soon I will be gone forever, but that’s okay as long as someone reads this. I am only 24 years old, yet I have actually already chosen my last tie. It’s the one that I will wear on my funeral a few months from now. It may not match my suit, but I think it’s perfect for the occasion.

The cancer diagnosis came too late to give me at least a tenuous hope for a long life, but I realized that the most important thing about death is to ensure that you leave this world a little better than it was before you existed with your contributions . The way I’ve lived my life so far, my existence or more precisely the loss of it, will not matter because I have lived without doing anything impactful.

Before, there were so many things that occupied my mind. When I learned how much time I had left, however, it became clear which things are really important. So, I am writing to you for a selfish reason. I want to give meaning to my life by sharing with you what I have realized:

19 Soldiers Who Fought In Afghanistan Reveal Their Preconceptions That Turned Out To Be Completely Wrong

December 20, 2017 | No Comments » | Topics: TRUTH |

1. That Afghanistan was an actual country. It’s only so on a map; the people (in some of the more rural places, at least) have no concept of Afghanistan.

We were in a village in northern Kandahar province, talking to some people who of course had no idea who we were or why we were there. This was in 2004; not only had they not heard about 9/11, they hadn’t heard Americans had come over. Talking to them further, they hadn’t heard about that one time the Russians were in Afghanistan either.

We then asked if they knew where the city of Kandahar was, which is a rather large and important city some 30 miles to the south. They’d heard of it, but no one had ever been there, and they didn’t know when it was.

For them, there was no Afghanistan. The concept just didn’t exist.

One Of The Best Feelings In The World

December 14, 2017 | 7 Comments » | Topics: TRUTH |

One of the best feelings in the world is getting your test results back and finding out you don’t have AIDS. No more sleepless nights of questioning whether or not the condom slipped during intercourse with that less than trust-worthy party girl. No more looking up Web-MD for HIV symptoms when you develop a mild cough or show any signs of being under the weather. No more paranoid thoughts of being forever-alone because you contracted a disease that will forever stigmatize you in the dating realm.

If you are sexually active, you should be getting tested at least 2 times per year. And the folks over at Oraquick have developed an FDA approved home testing kit, that gives your results in 20 minutes. No more sweating it out, while you wait 2 weeks for you results. I used this a couple times and its super easy to use and the instructions are super easy to follow. Give yourself some peace of mind and get tested!

13 People Reveal Their Secret That Could Ruin Their Lives

December 7, 2017 | 1 Comment » | Topics: TRUTH |

1. I’ve been in a strictly sexual relationship with a first cousin for the last five years. We only ever saw each other once or twice a year growing up before she moved to the other side of the country and then never really saw or interacted with each other again until 5 years ago when she moved back. What started as us meeting up one in awhile has become a regular thing in the last few months. It’s escalated to the point where we’re now sexting each other.I’m scared to death of what might happen if anyone in our family finds out but I don’t want to stop what’s happening either.

12 Addicts And Former Addicts Reveal The Worst Thing They Ever Did To Get A Fix

1. I was using pretty heavy at the time and was desperate for some quick cash so I met a guy on craigslist who was really into scat. I shit on him and let him shit on me for $100. He was pretty well off so it was a reoccurring thing that probably happened about 2 times a week for almost 8 months.
