My earliest memories are from the fall of '89 (The Little Mermaid, Berlin Wall...)
  
I seem to recall Alvin and the Chipmunks being responsible for bringing down the wall, with a concert.
  
Of course you guys are good at doing a sad. I should never have been surprised.

What's your favorite sad song? You know, that one you go back to when you just need to wallow for a while.


Mine's sometime around midnight by the airborne toxic event.

I've built a whole "melancholy" playlist, but if you want me to just pick one:

Loneliest Girl from Carole & Tuesday
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f1dGFDiDcyg

I don't like sad songs. They just make me sadder. Why on earth would someone need to wallow?

I like listening to sleepaways on bandcamp.

Either.
Dango Daikazoku by Chata
or
Asayake no Starmine by Imai Asami

Forever and always

While there are a few the one that comes to mind is Five FInger Death Punch - Walk Away

Life & Death from the Lost OST

Better for me by fake laugh, eyes without a face by billy idol

"The Long And Winding Road" by The Beatles.

Shadows and Regrets by Yellowcard

odds and ends, but it's in japanese. a classic vocaloid song.

Something’s Always Wrong by Toad the Wet Sprocket.

Always gets me pumped up, every time. Without fail.
PLUS ULTRAAAA

"All This Bad Blood" by Bastille.
Disc II, Part 1. All of it.

Don't speak her name!

I Lost a Friend or prom dress i guess

I hide from sad feelings so I don't really have a good one

This one split so evenly it's kinda crazy. The first day it was 444, what an unexpectedly devisive topic.

Answers:

  • Nah, don't really bother at all honestly

  • Tweezers and scissors

  • Ugh... I hate my body hair so much... I'm male-bodied genderfluid and my body hair is what really hits my dysphoria the hardest. The worst part is that if I shave, I'm a cactus the next day and I have it all back the day after that. It takes me up to two hours to shave my body and is just a ton of work. Even worse is the itching that comes as well as all the razor cuts... What I'm looking into getting is an epilator. It's basically an electric tweezer that pulls the hairs out. I'm also looking into "magic shaving powder". It's a depilatory powder that you mix with water and spread on yourself. It's like Nair, but I've heard it's far less harsh. My dream is to get laser removal, but that is pricey as hell. Just for my face would be $140 per session and I've heard people having to go for 10-20 sessions. Now just imagine the price for legs, chest, and all the rest. I'd rather fix my teeth or fix my balding head first for that price.

  • Only ass hair really bothers me but the rest is also a mild nuisance; even the hair on my head but that is important to my appearance and style (as is my facial hair. If there were an easy way to remove hair from everywhere on my body expect my head, I'd do it in a heartbeat.

  • Razors. Even on my delicate lady mustache.

  • i use nair

  • I don't do anything with mine

  • I basically don't bother at all until I literally have to. I'm female but growing up I had accelerated male-pattern hair growth. My mother tried to get on my case to keep on top of it, but I would shave and it would feel like it was back days later. It just wasn't worth it. I don't actually know how long it took to grow back but it was fast enough that I was so discouraged and I didn't even mind it that much in the first place. So now I basically don't shave at all.

  • I honestly don't mind body hair, on myself, or others.

  • It consumes my mind

  • A real man doesn't shave (or whatever) below his neck
  
I have been told from the hate thread to bump this so a cat doesn't die.

So here's a bump.

Also, that's an interesting result for the shaving question.
  
Thank you Mathy.

This life is nothing short of an ennobling transmission of internal interconnectedness.
Will is the driver of understanding. Nothing is impossible.
Yes, it is possible to exterminate the things that can exterminate us, but not without rebirth on our side.
The quantum soup is calling to you via atomic ionization. Can you hear it? Visitor, look within and awaken yourself. It can be difficult to know where to begin.
Humankind has nothing to lose. Throughout history, humans have been interacting with the universe via vibrations. We are in the midst of an infinite summoning of awareness that will align us with the solar system itself.
Feng shui may be the solution to what’s holding you back from an unfathomable reintegration of insight. Through affirmations, our chakras are transformed into rejuvenation. As you self-actualize, you will enter into infinite energy that transcends understanding.
If you have never experienced this uprising inherent in nature, it can be difficult to live.
You will soon be guided by a power deep within yourself — a power that is sensual, enlightened. We must learn how to lead high-frequency lives in the face of delusion. Imagine an ennobling of what could be.
Although you may not realize it, you are spiritual. Have you found your journey? How should you navigate this sublime dreamscape?

I'm a little worried. I think I'd basically ignore the news for four years if he did get elected.

Should I be legitimately worried about Donald Trump becoming president?"

Question #2014462 Aug 10, 2016 4:20 AM 62 answers

No. You should be legitimately worried about Hillary Clinton becoming president. You don't see the fathers of terrorists sitting with trump at his rallies do you?
Aug 10, 2016 4:33 AM

Most definitely. The moment the general public feel safe from the Donald, they will no longer feel the need to vote against him. Also there is the point where people love rooting for the underdog so there will likely be boosted numbers of Trump voters at that time too.
Aug 10, 2016 5:20 AM

Aug 10, 2016 6:13 AM

Hillary will win
But that he's even in the running is ridiculous
Aug 10, 2016 7:58 AM

No. The President doesn't yield that much power beside being able to initiate a war. He can't do that much damage in four years. He can always be impeached. In reality, he will accomplish about the same as the last several clowns we've had in office -- nothing!

Aug 10, 2016 7:00 PM

I dunno. should you be? what are your concerns relative to Donald Trump becoming president?
anyone who answers your question with a yes or a no and then goes on a rant is a fucking idiot.
don't just blindly take my word for it. after all I could be biased. here's how you determine this for yourself.
an idiot is a person whose thoughts are misaligned with the world, all on their own doing. they think they've determined all of the relevant facts, but they haven't, and they don't realize this. someone who's smart acknowledges their own progress, how much they've learned, how much they don't know, so on. not every person is 100% idiocy-free, but people who display multiple signs of it early on should not be taken seriously.
for everyone who answers this question, take a look at how many people even accurately comprehended your question. "Should I", as in, you, should you, be worried about Donald Trump. how are they to know whether or not you should be worried? we have no idea who the fuck you are or what you want. if we just assume we know, we're delving outside of the realm of reality-- you see how this works?

Aug 10, 2016 10:53 PM

do you mean is it likely enough to concern you? if so, then probably, but it's still relatively unlikely.
or do you mean is the possibility bad enough that it should concern you even though it's relatively unlikely? if so, then definitely.
Aug 11, 2016 12:55 AM

yeah
Aug 16, 2016 10:22 PM

Concerned, but not fearful. The president is a single part of a system, even if a very powerful part of the system. We've had rough times before. 4 years is a long time but I'm sure we can make it. He may be an unprecedented president, but I just can't see him successfully burning his country to the ground all on his own. And there could be benefits to his presidency. He isn't without some merit and sensibility.
Brush up on your congressional candidates so that when you get to the polls in November, you'll know who to check off in the boxes besides president.
If you're not of voting age or don't live in America, still try and campaign for the right people for the job.

No? He's been president for two whole years and a fiscal quarter. Nothing bad has happened yet.
No civil war, no collusion, no martial law, no Russian invasion.
People like to think the president is king, he isn't. I had to remind people that Obama wasn't the antichrist all the time too. Trump will serve his term, he'll probably get re-elected, world will keep turning.

Ha! I was inspired by this answer chain so I'm going to edit and comment on some.

"The quantum soup is calling to you via atomic ionization. Can you hear it? can you feel it Mr. Krabs?"

"Nah, whoever wins the D nomination would slaughter him." "Hillary will win
But that he's even in the running is ridiculous" Welp.

"Nah he can't get anything done without congress" Maaaan, I've got some bad news about Congress for this anon...

"No, you need to worry about Bernie Sanders" Oh yeah, I was super terrified of higher education opportunities and the apocalypse that was sure to be brought about with more people getting degrees. Save me from the egg heads!

"tbh
like not to sound a white liberal or some shit
i'm legitimately worried for ANY presidential candidate
i do not see anything good coming from hillary or trump" Haha, this does sound like white liberalism, but as a white liberal I couldn't help but agree with it.

"Don't count it out, unfortunately. Shit like this makes me glad there are so many ways to die because I'll be checking out of the hotel early if shit goes down lmao." no jokes here, I find it sad that so many people get so invested in politics that they genuinely joke about killing themselves if politics takes a bad turn.

"everyone should because we're sooooo close to having a repeat of the third reich" Oh yeah, every bad person is literally Hitler, I forget that rule sometimes.

"If you're a white male, then no." can confirm, have no cause to be worried, I worry about some of my brown friends though.

"There’s no way he’ll get elected! Hillary all the way!
Mar 19, 2019 11:59 PM" I read this in epic movie trailer guy's voice and I laughed

"I doubt he'll get elected twice." someone PLEASE tell this man to knock on wood.

What is your favourite metal (the kind on the periodic table)?

Zirconium, because I had to do a project on it in 6th grade. We had to make a superhero based on an element so I closed my eyes and points at Zirconium. I really could not think of anything creative with that name, but I thought it was a cool-sounding element so I made up Zirco-zam. I don't know why I remember that so much...
  
For me it would be niobium because its symbol, Nb, is both my initials and my gender
  
this is a poll so i don’t know if it counts but i’m gonna complain about it anyways
“ question 11: in paper mario, lakilester wants you to call him spike. in the japanese version of paper mario, lakilester wants you to call him by what name?”

and the correct answer got the fewest votes out of anyone. you’d think that even with a random guess it’d be 25-25-25-25 split but no >:(
  
This one was pretty good so I'm gonna post it. Plus I need to show Titan how it's done :P

What part of a work of media scarred your tender, growing mind as a kid?

Here are a few examples from me:
The scene in Monsters Inc. where the dude got his face sucked
A scene in some CSI show where some guy at a casino had two girls make out in front of him

~Two girls making out scarred you?
~The internets mostly
I was like 11 when my family got a "modern" PC with a dial-up modem.
~i got in contact with instagram and groupchats at the ripe age of 11-12
the amount of beastiality i seen, people cutting their dicks off, pedophilia, animal torture
~The dream sequence in a goofy movie
~When Pinnochio was turning into a donkey
The vomit scene in The Exorcist
Poltergeist; including the sequels, especially the braces scene in the second one
~Little you was homophobic
~P 0 r n
~This will sound really silly, but it was all the scenes from E.T. where it shows the alien's neck stretching really long, and also the scenes where he screams. That sound, coupled with those visuals, scared the hell out of me at a very early age, to the point where I would have regular nightmares about that alien most nights for my entire childhood. It was just this one alien from a movie, but its presence in my nightmares (actually usually being even more twisted and stretched out because that kind of visual especially creeps me out) would haunt me daily.
That thing was my entire fear of the dark, of being alone, of certain rooms in the house, and everything, because if I ever realized at any point that, "Oh, this is a dream," then it would 100% of the time be immediately followed by my mind's own twisted, warped and even more disturbing version of it coming after me.
~I used to watch hotdiggetydemons stuff when I was younger. Boy did that do a number on me.
~the infamous scene from the fairy dance arc of sao when i was 12
i think the first thing on tv that scared me though was that one family guy episode with evil stewie and he lived while regular stewie was killed by brian
~Omg that scene in Monsters Inc was totally terrifying when I was a kid, it still gives me the creeps
~lol i didnt need media to ruin my mind
~Toy Story, on the whole. Lots of weird thoughts of everything around me being alive and thoughts that I'm always bein watched
~Maybe the ending of the movie Powder. It was the first movie I saw that had what would be considered a sad ending.
A documentary called Irish Castles too for some time made me sometimes have trouble sleeping because I was scared I'd get a bad dream.
Metropolis (2000) had a big emotional impact on me as well.
~Watership down
~The mummy episode of courage the cowardly dog
~"That" scene in pulp fiction.
~ms perigeins school for unusual children (i forget the exact title) i read it when i was 7 and the picture of the man with tentacles in his mouth scarred me
~caroline - the part when she's about to have buttons sewn into her eyeballs

Aw hell here's the link to the sleep poll too.
~Eh.. I'd say 6 or 8. I often stay up out of stubbornness, but once I lay down I'm out
~I used to be pretty good, but over the quarantimes I've completely lost any semblance of a healthy sleep schedule
~real bad lately
~I always have an idea what time I want to go to bed and then my husband wants me to hang out with him longer lol
~My sleep "schedule" is basically RNG
~A solid 8: I'm off my computer and laying down in bed around 9 PM. I'm sometimes a bit late or still chatting with someone when I shut my PC down, so I take the conversation to my phone.
~I put on maekup today for the first time in while, and while I was quote proud of myself, the bags under my eyes became even more present when everything else looked nice
~I typically go to bed perfectly when school's in session, but as soon as summer hits, I stay up really late.
~I gave myself a 1 but that's exaggerating. More like 2-3. I almost always stay up hours later than I want to/should, but I can force myself if I *have* to.

Lmk if you guys see yourselves. Bye, have a beautiful time!

Not even sure what a Rasboras is, but it seems saltwater-y.
Reply | Delete Jun 22, 2021 6:02 PM (#13011340)

I only keep freshwater, and I have gouramis and rasporas but never touched discus cause they're so finicky, so discus is my guess lmao
Reply | Delete Jun 22, 2021 1:58 PM (#13011216)

If I’m not mistaken a gourami is a fish, and one that can be kept in a (non saltwater) tank, no idea about the other two but I guessed rasboras and it appears to be correct

Oof, everyone is wrong
Reply | Delete Jun 22, 2021 10:42 AM (#13011095)

These all sound made up. I picked Rasboras because Gouramis sounds like Gorlami, which was the fake Italian name Brad Pitt's character used in Inglorious Basterds. Italy is land, so the creature must be a land creature.

Discus is an olympic event that's part of track and FIELD. Not track and WATER.

I know you said they're all water creatures but I like my headcanon more
Reply | Delete Jun 22, 2021 9:46 AM (#13011048)

I had to look these up as I would have only known 1 if you were to use their common name. The rasboras, which are guppy's, or at least includes them, and they all seem to have that shape of body.

Granted, I only looked at pictures, so I did not get the answer of which lives where.

Looking at the fish, I'd say the discus, they seem to have a body/pattern that would work well in coral environments, if I were to take a guess.
