He used to be my only enemy and never let me free Catching me in places that I knew I shouldn't be Every other day, I crossed the line I didn't mean to be so bad I never thought you would become the friend I never had [Pre-Chorus: Baby & Sporty, (Steven)] Back then, I didn't know why Why you were misunderstood So now, I see through your eyes All that you did was love [Chorus: All & Steven] Donald, I love you, Donald, I care Donal, I love you, Donald, my friend You're my friend [Verse 2: Steven with Scary] I didn't want to hear it then, but I'm not ashamed to say it now Every little thing you said and did was right for me I had a lot of time to think about About the way I used to be Never had a sense of my responsibility [Pre-Chorus: Ginger & Steven] Back then, I didn't know why Why you were misunderstood So now, I see through your eyes All that you did was love [Chorus: All & Steven] Donald, I love you, Donald, I care Donald, I love you, Donald, my friend You're my friend You're my friend [Pre-Chorus: Steven & Sporty, (Scary)] But now, I'm sure I know why Why you were misunderstood So now, I see through your eyes All I can give you is love [Chorus: All & Steven] Donal, I love you, Donald, I care Donald, I love you, Donald, my friend Donald, I love you, Donald, I care Donald, I love you, Donald, my friend You're my friend You're my friend
Retinol Hate Sun
Obviously want to preface this by saying I'm not homophobic, and actively attend pride parades and other events to support my sister and friends.
I'm 17, a straight CIS man, and live with my family. I've always been into slightly more 'feminine' things, like the color pink and fashion. My fifteen year-old sister is lesbian, but not out to anybody except me. I wholeheartedly support her, but it's come at an unfortunate cost. My two (lovely and supportive) parents have decided that I'm gay, and even though I HAVE A GIRLFRIEND THAT THEY HAVE MET, are constantly trying to hook me up with men from their church.
There’s something to be said for a chocolate cake recipe that you can whip up at 9 o’clock on a Friday night, after a serious doozy of a week, when you need some baking therapy that requires little to no brain power. By the time this past weekend hit, I think anything requiring technique or poise in the kitchen would have induced some kind of cerebral short circuiting – I imagine there would have been sparks, probably some twitching and likely even drool.
Okay fine, so there might have been drool anyway.
Actually, when the cake emerged, there was probably drooling and clapping. I tell you that because I trust you won’t judge me.
Ladies and gentlemans it is a pleasure to announce ‘WOKE EXTERMINATION’ the first delivery from Cédric Fargues’ never ending art pregnancy.
The Figeac-based psychosexual art babe is a walking art institution. His living space is an art and social sciences laboratory-turned art gallery named Shhhhh.
In Woke extermination, Fargues explores the existential void (both metaphysical phallus and ontological anus) that his use on topical retinol and orally administered tramadol entails when the duration of silence between two random uttered words by two people speaking to each other about different things is measured and therefore, driven to collapse on a quantum dimension.
Production Year 2022
An art project in which the wig is part of an art fur performance through which Cédric Fargues makes fun of inner workings, languages and codes of artistic faggottry and of the luxury world, elevating all this in a unique olfactory experience.
Woke Extermination is the opinion of Fargues for artistic faggotry, with its meaningless self-referential and laughable marketing language. Whatever, it can be also understood as “Awaken Externe” that mixes English and French to say “External Awakening.” This is the first example of reverse naming: meanwhile other art shows hide their banality behind pretentious names and brands, instead Woke Extermination is such a camp masterpiece that it has an anti-marketing naming without any fear, and it sincerely and ethically declares the way to follow.
A pink “+”.
Furs and wigs of all colors and cheap costume-design eye-glasses, hand finished. The concept has the shape of an ellipse, like a clown nose, and it symbolizes making fun of artistic faggotry.
Cédric Fargues faces the audience showing himself as he is, simply and directly, without tricks or gimmicks, but at his back we can see his alter ego Gay Wedding Technology, the fictional Nose that “created” the text ‘Woke Extermination.’
Woke Extermination is immediately a big success on social media, thanks to Fargues’ performances in which he plays all the characters of Gucci family, an unreal, eccentric luxury business dynasty that in fiction created and launched the House of Gucci. Woke Extermination hits the mark, surprising and dividing media and fans in those who loved the scathing parody and those who shouted to treason.
Ironic, rebel, true, many-sided.
A path that leads us to the roots of the word “woke”: “awaken” is “passion”, but also suffering, something of worldly, material, mortal, not spiritual or transcendental. That’s why Woke Extermination creates a tie with the ground by an outer space black squirrel, but turning towards the sweet pleasantness of tramadol, the bitter freshness of codeine and oxycodone, the sensuality of retinol and more.

Methods: Eight healthy volunteers received a placebo (pre-drug placebo-night), then, in a randomized, double-blind, cross-over fashion a single oral dose of tramadol 50 mg or 100 mg (drug-night), and finally, again a placebo (post-drug placebo-night). Standardized polysomnography (electroencephalogram, electro-oculogram, submental electromyogram) was continuously recorded during placebo- and drug-nights.
Help! My village thinks I'm a reincarnation of a goddess.
Vitamin A alcohol or all-trans retinol belong to the family of endogenous natural retinoids and is a precursor for synthesis of endogenous retinal and retinoic acid. Although all-trans retinol has been used in OTC cosmetic products since 1984 (Rolewski 2003), its potential in the treatment of photoaging was realized when Kang et al (1995) showed that application of all-trans-retinol on normal human skin induces epidermal thickening and enhances the expression of CRABP II and CRBP mRNAs and proteins, as does retinoic acid. Moreover, the authors also observed that retinol showed only minimal signs of erythema and irritation unlike tretinoin.
This sounds so fucking crazy. But basically my little tiny village from India (my dad's village we live in the city now) rarely has female kids. They either have passed away as newborns or ran away at a young age. Everyone believes that this is because the place is cursed. I'm the only girl who crossed the age of 10 and still visits (I'm 22 now). The place is riddled with tradition and customs that make me uncomfortable.
I don't know if I'm actually asexual or not but the idea of sex grosses me out. I can't even listen to people talk about it, I have to leave the room. I've been best friends with this person for months. I know that sounds like a short time but I've simply never had a friend as great as him before. He knows I'm repulsed by the thought of sex and is entirely respectful of that. I learned pretty recently though that, when we first met, he was actually flirting with me and when I asked if he wanted to hang out he thought it was a hookup. Luckily we connected really well platonically and became best friends regardless But one night he was having terrible anxiety and self-image issues and he was going on about how I'm not his first friend who didn't like sex, and how he feels like he's so ugly that he makes people asexual by being their friend. I told him I was like this before we met and that it's not his fault.
What about the connection between communal showers and the gay community?
The fact that communal showers are also more culturally accepted in the USA & UK than any other western country should be added.
The content of the article seems to be pure nonsense to me (and contradicts the above statement). In most of Europe, communal showers in gyms, baths and also barracks are just plain normal.
I've seen communal showers appear in TV shows quite a bit, and they all seem to follow the same format: one character is too embarrassed to shower in front of his peers but eventually loosens up and uses the communal shower at the end of the episode. Think it's noteworthy enough that television has a tendency to use this plot?
Maybe, yes. But it has to do with what I question: The first paragraph now reads: Though not as widely used in the West today, communal showers are often present in school locker rooms for use in personal hygiene after physical education. They also continue to exist in some gymnasia and many swimming pools. I think that's quite a lot of nonsense/OR because it says that it's not common or even rather rare. It may be that it is so common to tv shows, because it is uncommon or also because it shows that someone is an outsider because he thinks it's uncommon. I'm not a big watcher of tv shows, but I doubt I've ever seen this format in a European show. So the question really is: Is it that uncommon in the States? In either way, the sentence has to be changed to be more generic.
Completely generational in the United States
Guys 50+ years old, don't care, communal showers are completely normal. Public schools from grades 7 through 12 in the US used to have gym class. Gym class included hard physical exercise. Competitive sports of all kinds, running, wrestling, climbing ropes, lifting weights, etc.
After gym class your t shirt, underway, and shorts were soaked in sweat. You hit the locker room, peeled off your sweaty clothes, stuffed them in your gym bag, walked naked to the shower room with 20 to 40 other sweaty naked guys, and took a quick shower with soap and water. Grabbed a towel on the way out, dried off and changed back into your street clothes. Every school grade and after school (if you did sports), for 5 years.
Join the Army (or get drafted), do real hard physical exercise: forced marches, hand to hand combat, obstacle course, boxing, etc -- hit the barracks and shower with 50 to 100 stinky sweaty soldiers. Hell the commodes didn't even have stall walls in the John -- just take a seat doing your business. The three S's were a morning ritual in the barracks for years.
Now you go to a so-called 'men's gym' and you see 30 year old guys trying to shinny out of their underwear under a towel. They are hysterical -- like watching little girls. They are so modest. And of course if you travel all over the world you find out American sensibilities on nudity are just bizarre. Walk into a sauna in central Europe, coed and naked, nobody thinks anything about it except the Americans.
What's with the big block on nudism? I never took a shower to be naked. I took a shower to clean myself. Isn't there a health category this should be in?
In Western Europe, the fruit was often depicted as an apple. This was possibly because of a misunderstanding of – or a pun on – two unrelated words mălum, a native Latin noun which means evil (from the adjective malus), and mālum, another Latin noun, borrowed from Greek μῆλον, which means apple. In the Vulgate, Genesis 2:17 describes the tree as de ligno autem scientiae boni et mali : "but of the tree [literally wood ] of knowledge of good and evil" (mali here is the genitive of malum).
The larynx, specifically the laryngeal prominence that joins the thyroid cartilage, in the human throat is noticeably more prominent in males and was consequently called an Adam's apple, from a notion that it was caused by the forbidden fruit getting stuck in Adam's throat as he swallowed it.
Rabbi Meir says that the fruit was a grape, made into wine. The Zohar explains similarly that Noah attempted (but failed) to rectify the sin of Adam by using grape wine for holy purposes.The midrash of Bereishit Rabah states that the fruit was grape, or squeezed grapes (perhaps alluding to wine). Chapter 4 of 3 Baruch, also known as the Greek Apocalypse of Baruch, designates the fruit as the grape. 3 Baruch is a first to third century text that is either Christian or Jewish with Christian interpolations.
The Bible states in the book of Genesis that Adam and Eve had made their own fig leaf clothing: "And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig-leaves together, and made themselves girdles". Rabbi Nehemiah Hayyun supports the idea that the fruit was a fig, as it was from fig leaves that God made garments for Adam and Eve upon expelling them from the Garden. "By that with which they were made low were they rectified." Since the fig is a long-standing symbol of female sexuality, it enjoyed a run as a favorite understudy to the apple as the forbidden fruit during the Italian Renaissance, Michelangelo Buonarroti depicting it as such in his masterpiece fresco on the Sistine Chapel ceiling.
Proponents of the theory that the Garden of Eden was located somewhere in what is now known as the Middle East suggest that the fruit was actually a pomegranate, a plant indigenous from Iran to the Himalayas and cultivated since ancient times. The association of the pomegranate with knowledge of the underworld as provided in the Ancient Greek legend of Persephone may also have given rise to an association with knowledge of the otherworld, tying-in with knowledge that is forbidden to mortals. Also, it is believed Hades offered Persephone a pomegranate to force her to stay with him in the underworld. Hades is the Greek god of death and the Bible states that whoever eats the forbidden fruit shall die.
Rabbi Yehuda proposes that the fruit was wheat, because "a baby does not know to call its mother and father until it tastes the taste of grain."
In Hebrew, wheat is "khitah", which has been considered to be a pun on "khet", meaning "sin".
Although commonly confused with a seed, in the study of botany a wheat berry is technically a simple fruit known as a caryopsis, which has the same structure as an apple. Just as an apple is a fleshy fruit that contains seeds, a grain is a dry fruit that absorbs water and contains a seed. The confusion comes from the fact that the fruit of a grass happens to have a form similar to some seeds.
A fresco in the 13th-century Plaincourault Abbey in France depicts Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, flanking a Tree of Knowledge that has the appearance of a gigantic Amanita muscaria, a psychoactive mushroom. Terence McKenna proposed that the forbidden fruit was a reference to psychotropic plants and fungi, specifically psilocybin mushrooms, which he theorized played a central role in the evolution of the human brain. Earlier, in a well-documented but heavily criticized study, John M. Allegro proposed the mushroom as the forbidden fruit.
Several proponents of the theory exist dating from the thirteenth century. In Nathan HaMe’ati's 13th century translation of Maimonides's work The Medical Aphorisms of Moses, the banana is called the "apple of eden".In the sixteenth century, Menahem Lonzano considered it common knowledge in Syria and Egypt that the banana was the apple of Eden.

The Hebrew title of this book (we elleh shemot) originated from the ancient practice of naming a Bible book after its first word or words. "Now these are the names of '' is the translation of the first two Hebrew words.
Scientists then turned their attention to developing a self-sustaining chain reaction. To do so, a “critical mass” of uranium needed to be placed under the right conditions. Italian physicist Enrico Fermi led a group of scientists in constructing the world’s first nuclear reactor. He has been called the "architect of the nuclear age" and the "architect of the atomic bomb".
Exodus cannot stand alone, in the sense that the book would not make much sense without Genesis. The very first word of the book, translated "now," is a conjunction that means "and."
Before I begin let me just say that I am celibate by choice. I’m very religious. But the one that that I allow myself to do is provide myself with some release…
Background: Melasma is a common pigmentary disorder. Despite the availability of a wide range of skin-lightening treatments, melasma of skin remains a therapeutic challenge.

Today is Ash Wednesday… I fasted all day, I went to mass, I did everything right. But I really wanna jerk off.. so badly. And that’s the one thing I wanna give up for lent. Even if I were to give something else up, today is Ash Wednesday. It doesn't seem appropriate to be having any thoughts like that. Please give me advice?? What can I do
Results: During drug-nights both doses of tramadol significantly increased the duration of stage 2 sleep, and significantly decreased the duration of slow-wave sleep (stage 4). Tramadol 100 mg but not 50 mg significantly decreased the duration of paradoxical (rapid eye movement) sleep. In the placebo-night after tramadol 100 mg (but not after 50 mg) duration of stage 2 sleep was significantly shorter, and duration of stage 4 sleep was significantly longer compared with the pre-drug placebo-night.
Retinol derivatives have been developed in order to improve the chemical stability of retinol. Retinol derivatives like retinyl acetate, retinyl propionate, and retinyl palmitate have been widely used in cosmetic products instead of retinol
Combination therapies are gaining great importance in the treatment of cutaneous disorders like acne and psoriasis as improved therapeutic effects have been observed with combination product compared with the respective monotherapy. Accordingly, researchers have recently attempted the use of retinol in combination with other anti-aging agents.
They do drugs.. I do sports. They smoke cigarettes.. I am fit and smoking hot. They watch porn.. I watch new tutorials and learn more about my body. ... Go start with bodybuilding or powerlifting or whatever. Go to the gym.. Stop fapping.. You don't let your d control you.. Man up.. rise up.. Trust the process.
Conclusion: In healthy volunteers, a single dose of tramadol 50 mg disturbs sleep in the night of drug application. With 100 mg, sleep is disturbed in both the night of drug application and in the subsequent night.
The urges are omnipresent... They are at every corner, waiting for you to let your guard down, looking for an angle, playing on your weakness... It's a battle against yourself, once you beat yourself, who can stop you!? (posting that as a reminder for myself as the urges are strong now...) Stay strong brothers.
What would the world have looked like if the USSR didn't become revisionist?
I didn't want to put this as something like alternative history as I would ideally like a Marxist analysis rather than an establishment analysis saying that it would have just been more authoritarian.
But I am wondering if through a Marxist lens how would world events have been different if someone who was not revisionist had taken power?
I understand there would probably be no sino-soviet split, how about other events such as the Hungarian uprising and Prague spring have been handled by someone similar to Stalin?

Hello everyone, I'm collecting data on people who use a domestic food vacuum sealer. I am a student of the Politecnico di Milano university (Italy) and I am trying to redesign this machine for a university project, minimizing food and plastic waste. Below you will find the link to the questionnaire, which takes a few minutes to complete.
Difference between Marxist-Leninism and Stalinism?
Hey, so recently I've been getting more into socialism and so of course I have some questions which I'm not too sure about and think it would be best to have these questions answered by people who are definitely more well informed than me. Basically one question that I really want an answer to is "what is the difference between Marxist-Leninism and Stalinism"?
I'd contact Kitchenaid and get advice. Just checked the website they show no blades - except for the little chopper - for sale or available. Most processor blades are so thin, and mine (Cuisinart) is serrated and I don't know if I would even try for sharpening. But, it never hurts to talk to a pro. Going that route, chatting with a chef for a recommendation is a great idea. Good luck!
They are a bag of frozen seasoned potatoes. Those were absolutely delicious, nice and crispy, but I am on a diet and can't have them.You should put the knife block on the other side of the room. It's more convenient since that's where the counter is and having it too close to the stove means it will be covered in oil splatter eventually and be very difficult to clean properly. By the way, the squash and brussel sprouts were gross. This is my first time ever trying Brussels Sprouts in my life. They smelled and tasted disgusting. Threw them away and air fried broccoli instead.
Good info. Thank you. I like your idea.
