Memes of Jon Favreau's 2014 film Chef as well as the 2017 remake of the same name.

2023.06.10 00:09 MixHot4833 Do you feel like any of the moms were given a good/bad edit?

It was much harder to portray Farrah positively compared to Maci, Chelsea, or even Catelynn, as she had a bad attitude and struggled with mental illnesses due to past traumas However, many of the negative things Farrah did were not shown on the show. one of her neighbors claimed that Farrah neglected Sophia and would frequently leave her with her, even when Sophia was an infant, so that she could go partying. Additionally, Farrah has admitted to dabbling in hard drugs when Sophia was younger. As we already knew, Farrah would often leave Sophia with Deborah, despite the fact that they barely got along.
I feel like the producers of the show portrayed Farrah as simply being disrespectful to her mom, but in reality, she was also unhinged, and I'm surprised that CPS has not yet investigated her. Jenelle was also given a favorable edit because they never showed what led to her losing custody of Jace, and it had been widely speculated for years that Chelsea was also given a great edit.
I also feel like MTV and Corey portrayed Leah as a party girl who was addicted to drugs, but in reality, she was over-prescribed pain medication by her doctor. Additionally, I find it interesting that MTV never showed Corey cheating on Leah and Miranda.

[commence tales because it's only appropriate for this update:] So my previous server died as the story goes. Said owner decided to ghost us, typical. But believe me, this isn't my first rodeo. I have been on and off hosting servers and playing mc since beta 1.8 \flex** and my goal for this server is to STAY ONLINE! At this point I have full authority and am devoting to do my best to keep it that way. My last approach at server hosting lasted for over a year! Let's top that! [it's easy to think that it may die but I am trying to keep a positive attitude towards creating a community like the good old days... \sigh* I could go on... but let's continue with the important stuff...*]
We're all equals here... as equally as uncomfortable with the word 'wet' in our name... But we're striving to come together as a community. A home away from home. I don't want any "negative nancies" [sorry if your name is nancy] so to speak, so let's just state... The only rule I'm going to imply is that you use your common sense, consider global perspectives of situations, and have some respect when dealing with this server and the people of this server.

2023.06.10 00:07 Gel_007 The Founding Chapter 7

June 19th, 327
We decided to construct some more structures to take care of the refugees that we rescue, assuming that this goes off without a hitch. Augustine asked Elock about the collar and she revealed that the collar had a size changing enchantment attached to it. Once the seven day period is up, the collar will shrink, crushing her airways which would instantly kill her. So Augustine teleported her back quickly which would kick step one of our plan into gear.
cut to Elock’s pov
Shopkeeper: Hello welcome t- oh! Welcome back sir!
A: Hey there! Project took longer than expected, but luckily an extra set of hands makes heavy work pretty light!
Shopkeeper: What can I say? She’s one of the best. And also sir, if you don’t mind me asking, what were you working on? I didn’t see you anywhere in town.
A: oh- uhh I’m from the town over!
Shopkeeper: Are your memories already slipping? I paid the town next to us a visit to chat business with a friend and I never saw any structures being constructed.
A: I- I live at the far end! Perhaps you missed it.
Shopkeeper: …Alright then. have a nice day sir.
A: …you too…cya
Elock: humming hm, hm, hmmm! walking towards the back
Shopkeeper: Elock…
Elock: eep! Yes sir!
Shopkeeper: Would you mind telling me what you 2 were doing?
Elock: oh! Just a house for his extended family. Nothing special.
Shopkeeper: “just a house”? Alright then…you’re off for the rest of today…go to the slave house. takes off her collar
Elock: Thank you! runs off
Shopkeeper in thought: …those eyes…they seem to both see nothing and everything at once.
Shopkeeper: I’d appreciate it if you’d look into it a bit sir.
“Very well, I’ll inform my boss about it and I’ll get to your problem right away”
Shopkeeper: thank you sir
Lulio: huh…very well then, it’ll be well worth your time I believe…
“Thank you sir”
Lulio: I think you’ll do well…Akano
Elock: bursting into the slave home owned by the shop keep Woo! Man that was nerve wracking, for a second I thought he was gonna catch on!
Thoughts: Alright! Now! Time to get on with this operation! Augustine’s counting on me and I can’t let him down!
plops down next to fellow slave
Elock: whispers hey!
Slave: eh?
Elock: um…I- words dying in her throat
Slave: …
Elock: ah- mm… you wanna get out of here?
Thoughts: Why did I say that?! I’m so stupid!
Slave: …you know they’re gonna send us back here again instantly right? Cute dream but it’s just that: a fantasy. gets up and leaves
Elock: hey, wai- sad sigh
next day
Another slave: Nice fantasy…leaves
Elock: getting demoralized
Slave: potentially losing my life by going with your outlandish proposal is a risk I’d rather not take.
Elock: defeated
the next day
Shopkeeper: Hello again sir! Another project I presume?
A: yup! I’d like to take the same slave again, she really made the work quick.
Shopkeeper: good choice! rings bell ELOCK! Get your ass over here! The nice gentlemen wants your services again!
Elock: hey A- Sir…
A: Nice to see you again. tosses gold onto the counter and leaves
A: So how'd it go?
Elock: no one was on board with the plan. They all claimed it was insane and had no conceivable way of working!
A: Expected. Not everyone has the same high risk-high reward mindset, c'mon let’s get to Zach first and then we’ll build off from there. teleports
Z: hmmmm I understand, they’re scared, they've only known brutality and slavery their entire lives. They fear that if this goes south, then they’ll be subjected to a fate worse than death itself.
Elock: look of guilt
A: I’m fully aware of the dangers that come with this. But we do get discovered, I’ll gladly take on every army they throw at me if it means that you guys would survive.
Elock: Augustine!
Z: We know how much you wanna help them Augustine, but you don’t have to take on a mountain on your own. We’re both here for you.
A: right…sorry.
Elock: please, it’s alright. We can figure out some other way. Knowing you, you’ll be able to craft something before dinner.
A: I’ll take that as a compliment. Thanks Elock.
Z: Augustine.
A: yes?
Z: Are you familiar with the concept of mental projection?
A: Somewhat, they briefly skimmed over it in training back at the facility. The art of projecting imagery into other people’s mind on the battlefield to mentally erode them.
Z: precisely, but instead of breaking will, we’ll be building it.
A: What are you saying here?
Z: What if instead of trying to get slaves to get on board via words, why don’t we let them see for themselves what waits for them if they comply?
Elock: That’s genius! When they see the paradise that could be in their hands, there’s no way they can turn that down!
A: not a terrible idea, but I don’t think I have the chops to project an image into the mind of every slave in town, my skills in that department are unfortunately pretty lacking.
Z: Why don’t we go to the island again so you can familiarize yourself with the image you’re projecting, then use the mana crystals to give yourself some extra power?
A: Smart move, let’s do it.
exits cabin
A: Alright, time to go.
teleports both of them
A: Okay let’s get down to busine…where are we?
(Instead of being greeted with the base of a mountain range, they were still in the forest. Miles away from the cabin.)
Z: I- I don’t know!
A: I didn’t do anything different! But it’s alright, I remember the direction to go in, we can still fix this.
Elock: Alright then.
10 minutes of walking later
A: Get a move on Zach! We’re almost there! Shouldn’t be much farther!
Z: Hah…I- losing his breath how are you- how are you 2 still so energetic?
Elock: I’m a leopard. I'm meant to be agile!
A: This anti magic field’s edge shouldn’t be more than a few more minutes away! We should be out in about…NOBODY MOVE!
Elock and Zach: freezes in place What's wrong?
A: …we’re not alone. Someone else is here!
Elock: I don’t hear or smell anyone else besides you guys. Are you sure?
A: Yes I’m sure! I can sense another source of energy here!
???: I would say I’m impressed that you managed to detect me since I pride myself on being able to move like a shadow…but I sort of expected this with talent like yours.
Akano: Hello Augustine, been a while hasn’t it?
A: Akano? What’re you doing here…
Akano: boss sent me to hunt you down, anonymous source requested it.
Augustine thoughts: No doubt it was that shopkeeper.
Akano: Now since we’ve spent some time together, I’ll give you 2 choices. You can drop your sword and come back with us unharmed, or I paint this forest a lovely shade of red with your blood an-
A: Bring it on…
Akano: hm. As you wish…
Akano dashes towards Augustine with lightning speed, expecting to end this quickly.
An explosion sends a strong gust of cutting air across the forest. Zach and Elock took refuge behind a thick tree, powerless to do a damn thing to help.
Akano: oh ho! Quick on your feet are you?
Augustine who dodged into a tree: guess you can say that.
Akano: Well, I guess it’s time to turn this up a notch! pulls a strange amulet, with a large red gem resting in a gold frame
Augustine: hm?
Akano: Master Lulio entrusted me with this and I won’t let him down!
The amulet begins to glow once Akano puts it around his neck, The energy being given off was palpable from a mile away, to the point it could be severed with a knife.
The attack sends multiple large scale wind slices through out the area, yet even with this jump in power, Augustine doesn’t seem fazed with him perfectly dodging and blocking every slash as Akano watched, perplexed
Augustine: Your display of power is impressive. I'll give you that.
Akano: Keep talking little brat, the power contained within this amulet is beyond even your understanding!
Augustine: Oh really? What evidence do you have to back that theory up?
“What I’m saying is that even though you claim that this amulet is never before seen, you haven’t managed to land a single hit yet.” Augustine sneers.
Akano: beginning to seeth in rage
Augustine: In fact…you seem to be the most injured one so far…
Right on que, a small cut appears on Akano’s face as he looks up to see that Augustine blade is stained with his blood with a small smirk beginning to form on his face.
Akano: …You’re dead meat…
Akano launches towards the tree as Augustine simply leaps into another tree as it gets cut down, Akano sends jets of cutting wind at Augustine but he simply blocks or avoids them with seemingly zero effort. What confuses Akano even more is why he isn’t fighting back, with the worst attack he’s thrown so far being a small cut.
Akano: What’s wrong?! WHERE’S ALL THE TALK NOW HUH?!
Augustine: still dodging
Akano attempts to piledrive Augustine with his sword and successfully impales him through the chest.
The Augustine on his sword dematerialized as the real Augustine appears next to him
Augustine: Hey, nice effort.
With a swift kick, Augustine sends Akano flying into the trunk of a tree. Instantly causing him to cough up blood.
Augustine: I never wanted it to end this way, I apologize but this was your own doing.
Akano: barely mustering enough strength to stay conscious don’t think you’ve won yet brat…I’M FAR FROM DONE!
The amulet begins to glow a furious red as Akano leaps into the air, as he prepares to pour every last drop of his remaining strength into this attack as a last ditch effort to take Augustine down.
Elock: Is…is he gonna be alright?!
Z: Augustine has a knack for worming his way out of sticky situations, but I’m nervous even with the power he holds.
Akano unleashes a maelstrom of erratic sword slashes down towards Augustine, even faster than before. Augustine increases his speed to match but still gets 2 large cuts across his torso and arm. Seeing this Akano smiles and picks up his pace, confident that he would kill him.
Augustine: slightly pressured and tired look from dodging so much
Akano’s face changes from glee to horror as he watches Augustine blast a tree with a fireball to launch himself to his position. Augustine was now no more than a few feet away from him and there was no way he could raise his sword up to block in time. “This is it” he thinks “This is how I’m gonna go out? Taken out by a boy turned monster?”. Everyone holds their breath as they wait for the killing blow where they watch Augustine raise his sword up to Akano’s neck, waiting for the splatter of blood to rain down on the trees…but it never comes. Instead of beheading Akano, Augustine slams the edge of his sword on the chains of the red amulet, breaking it. The amulet drops towards the forest floor and Akano’s power instantly fizzles out. The amulet clatters onto the ground as Augustine gracefully lands in a tree with Akano falling hard on his side.
Akano: I- trembling and confused at what just happened I’m alive?!
Akano looks up to see Augustine holding his amulet, looking at him, not with rage…but sympathy.
Akano: I’m…Why didn’t you kill me?!
Augustine: Because I’m not like you, slaughtering people just to fuel your own ego.
Zach and Elock observe the confrontation, in awe.
Akano: Don’t come at me with that moral high ground! And I’m not done yet! grips sword
Before Akano could draw his blade, Augustine appeared in front of him holding a device in his hands.
Augustine: So this was the reason why I couldn’t teleport. slashing the black, rune carved tablet into bits
Akano: …feeling panic wash over him
Augustine: Just…do something for me alright?
Akano: looks on with confusion
Augustine: Just…try to be a better person after you get out.
Before Akano could question what he meant by “get out” Augustine pressed his finger onto Akano’s forehead and at that moment, Akano felt something he hadn’t felt in a long time: relief, like all the burdens of working for the grand Templar suddenly couldn’t touch him anymore. Still in this feeling, Augustine focused his energy into Akano, teleporting him away. Akano awoke on a strange beach, confused.
Akano: gah…what…happened? What did he even do? That sensation, it felt…good. Now where am I-
Basitin: HALT!
Akano: ah!
Basitin 1: How did you get on our island stranger?
Basitin 2: take him to the king, he’ll know what to do.
Akano: Basitin…KING?!
Augustine: sigh of relief with his wounds almost done regenerating That was scary, I’ve never been in a real fight before, he was stronger than I thought he’d be. turns to Zach and Elock you guys alright?
Z: Augustine…That was…
A: what? Why are you looking at me like tha-
Elock: INCREDIBLE! pounces on him the way you effortlessly dodged almost all of his attacks was so cool! And the way you took him down was just like in the fantasy books!
Z: Elock let go! You’re gonna squeeze him to death!
Elock: oh! Sorry!
A: It's alright, though maybe I should stop performing those feats in front of you then.
Z: So Augustine, where should we head now? A clearing with torn up trees isn’t exactly what I call subtle.
A: They’re gonna come looking for him by following his amulet’s energy signal. Disposing of it is what we should do, but there are some properties of it that I wanna explore so… grabs his sword and smashes the gem, taking a small chunk to observe at the cabin
A: alright let’s get this out of here. focusing his energy onto the amulet, he teleported it away to a place that no one would find it. No one at all. No sir
Smol basitin child: Hey! What’s this shiny red rock?
Another child: don’t know.
Smol basitin: whoa! It shoots fire, and the warmth feels so nice and…intoxicating…
A: They still might find this carnage though, heading back for the day I think is the better idea.
Z: well if you say so then.
A: Luckily with that device destroyed, I can teleport again.
Elock: let’s get out of here then!
A: very well. teleports
later that night
Z: Augustine you doing alright?
A: yes I’m fine, tomorrow it’ll look like these injuries were never there.
Z: No I was talking about your feelings, I thought you’d be demoralized after that attack.
A: quite the opposite actually, it felt good letting some of my feelings out in that battle.
Z: I see. I was expecting you to actually kill him, but was surprised when you just broke his necklace.
A: Guess the memory 2 guards I slayed in the facility during the escape still burned a bit.
Z: I understand.
Augustine’s thoughts: goes back to a conversation he had with Elock years ago
Young Elock: Augustine, how do you define a hero?
Young Augustine: hm?
Young Elock: I read a lot of fantasy and mythology books about epic battles and legendary heroes, what’s a hero to you?
Young Augustine: That's a pretty subjective question but I don’t think I’m the right person to answer that. I’ve always defined heroes as people who can take the villain down and nothing more.
Young Elock: I guess you can say that.
Young Augustine: So how do you define a hero Elock? Might as well get a second opinion.
Young Elock: Oh! Um! I’ve always believed that heroes are people who can both save the day, and send the villains down the brighter path. Not through power but through words, not simply killing them.
Young Augustine: Huh…that’s a new concept, pretty cool. I’ll give it some thought.
Young Elock: Thanks!
“Am I really a hero doing this?”
Elock: Augustine. You ok? You look lost.
A: snaps back huh? Oh right, sorry I was daydreaming.
Elock: disappointed that the plan failed?
A: I- yeah I suppose so.
“Well perhaps I can help with that”
A: Who said that?!
Z: Elock was that you?
Elock: I didn’t say that.
“It was me!”
Everyone looks around the cabin to see who’s talking.
“Oh my masks…HEY! IDIOTS! DOWN HERE!”
Everyone looks down to see…a white cat?
Z: a cat?
Elock: awwww! It’s so cute!
A: Oh it's you again. Hey there.
Z: Wait Augustine was this the weird cat I saw in the forest a while back?!
“Have some respect, Doctor! I’ll have you know that I have the ability to take your insides to the outside!”
Z: Who the hell are you anyways? And what are you doing here?! And how are you creepily talking inside my head?!
“Well if you insist”
“My name is Nora, or Lady Nora”
Z: shudders L- Lady Nora?! PLEASE FORGIVE MY RUDENESS!
Nora: oh please, get up from the floor already! Do you seriously deal with this guy everyday?
A: Normally he’s calm and collected. Guess in the presence of superiority he’s pretty shy.
Nora: typical humans.
Elock: Excuse me, lady Nora! But what are you doing here? Don’t you have more important business to take care of?
Nora: Dragon duties get pre-tty boring after a while, so I’m always looking for new stuff to do.
Elock: but that only answers one question! What are you doing here?
Nora: to help…duh.
Elock: really?
A: huh?
Z: what?
Nora: Yeah, I’m here to help. What?
Z: Is this a trick?! Are you waiting for us to reveal our plans to you just for you to tell the grand Templar?!
Nora: Are you deaf? I JUST SAID I'M HELPING YOU! And besides! I already know about your plan! Jeez your mind is easy to peek into!
A: Why are you helping though? Surely there are more interesting things you could be doing…not that we’re turning down your offer though.
Nora: Why does anyone do anything? When you get to my age everything’s pretty boring.
A: yeah…don’t think we’ll be getting there anytime soon. But how do you plan on helping? I mean I get how much power you hold but what can you do to benefit us?
Nora: You'll know it when the time comes. I’ll need a few days…and also! manifests a key out of nowhere for your buddy’s collar over there.
A: Oh! Thank you! Elock! You’re free now!
Elock: picks up Nora and presses her against her face Thank youuuuuuuu!
Nora: ACK! Get off me! I know you’re happy but limit the physical touch!
A: how’d you even get the key anyways? I thought that the shopkeeper held the sole copy!
Nora: oh! It was simple really, just made him a deal where for the key I show him uhh ahem a “pleasurable” fantasy if you know what I mean.
A: oh…OH…
Nora: right…anyways. I’ll be ready when you guys need me. Once you get your crap together I’ll be ready.
Z: very well then.
June 20th, 327
Zach wakes up to see Augustine sitting at his desk, tinkering with the red crystal sample seemingly puzzled and intrigued at once. Elock is still asleep on the bed as Augustine let her have it.
Z: what’cha doing there?
A: oh! Hey Zach! I’m just testing this sample I got from Akano’s amulet and it’s pretty interesting. First off, the size of the crystal never seems to shift no matter how much I use it, with me charging energy into one of our slabs of steak and the crystal never changes size at all! What I’m more curious about is the steak. I used my sword to cut it and to my amazement it started healing the cut right before my eyes, so in essence I imbued that piece of meat with my regenerative properties! Unfortunately it didn’t last long as the high amount of energy destroyed the steak’s cells and quite literally liquifying it!
Z: interesting…
A: But that does raise some red flags unfortunately…
Z: why’s tha- oh…you don’t mean…
A: yeah…that means that one day…I might befall the same fate. But when? I don’t know. And I don’t wanna think about it.
To be continued…

2023.06.10 00:02 yayabanana17 AITA for telling my brother in law he needs to fix his attitude?

I (F20) have an older sister (F23) who is married to “Liam” (M23). Ever since they’ve been together my relationship with Liam has been rocky. We have very clashing personalities and he tends to be extremely arrogant and has the “I’m always right because I’m a man” type of attitude.Due to that, I try my best just to keep things civil with him.
It was my sister’s birthday yesterday so she invited me and my boyfriend (M20) “Jake” over for dinner at their apartment. At the end of dinner we were all just sitting and chatting at the table. Me and Jake are going on our 1 year anniversary trip next week to Mexico so that came up in conversation. Liam then asked “so tell me, who paid for the trip?”. Jake then says “me, who else?” (Jake owns a company therefore makes significantly more money than me, and although he’s paying for the flight/hotel I’m paying for all the extras like excursions and food and such)
Liam was shocked by that answer and jokingly said “dude don’t be such a simp. I swear women nowadays just expect their boyfriends to be walking ATM’s”. I chimmed in and said “he’s not being a simp, a relationship should be 50/50 but Jake is naturally a provider. He never wants me paying for anything even though I offer all the time. I even offered to split the cost of the hotel/flight but he just wants to spoil me all the time.” Jake said “that’s true. I’m a provider. That’s just how I was raised. She still pays for stuff here and there and that’s more than enough for me”
Liam then looked at me and said “don’t expect men to provide for you your entire life. That just makes you look like a dependent and needy woman. Look at your sister and I, she pays for her stuff and I pay for mine. We’re in a way healthier relationship than you two” He also looked at Jake and laughed and said “don’t let her have you on a leash like that buddy, cause trust me it’ll drive you nuts. I can see why you ran away the first time”
At this point I was livid because Liam was referring to when me and Jake first started dating there was a cheating situation involving another girl. Me and Jake have resolved the issue and we’re a lot happier now, that situation had NOTHING to do with me expecting Jake to provide for me.
I just got up from the table and told Jake we were leaving. I told Liam that what he said was way out of line and he doesn’t even know what he’s talking about. I told him I was tired of his constant misogynistic/judgy comments and attitude and we just left.
My sister texted me later that night trying to apologize on behalf of Liam and just begged me to try and get along with him. She said it breaks her heart that her own sister can’t get along with her husband. I told her that I didn’t care and if Liam wants to fix his attitude then I would reconsider trying to getting along.

2023.06.10 00:00 lo-tan-a On the Eternal Return

The following passages on Nietzsche's idea of the Eternal Recurrence are taken from the last chapter of the very academic book by the German Nietzsche expert Günter Abel. His book is entitled: Nietzsche: Die Dynamik der Willen zur Macht und die ewige Wiederkehr [Nietzsche: The Dynamics of the Will to Power and the Eternal Recurrence].
I've translated the passages using an online translator which keeps improving. I hope the passages are understandable. The German original is very abstract. But the content is very interesting. Günter Abel defends in his book basically systematically (metaphysically, physically, idea-psychologically) the idea of the Eternal Return.
Here now Günter Abel's conclusion:
The doctrine of the Return goes far beyond other interpretations of the world in its scope, in its ability to intensify, and in its interpretation. It is also an interpretation of interpretations in that, after a long history of different interpretations of the world and of the self, it only emerges at the end in its full content.
The full concept of the Eternal Return emerges only after the end of the metaphysical and theological interpretation of the world, after the passage through nihilism, after the incorporation of the "ultimate truth", i.e. the eternal flow of all things, after entering the level of the inseparability of the understanding of the world and of the self, of the original unity of man and the world, after man has become an individual in the full sense, after passing through the history that still awaits the idea of the Return itself, and after both the What and the How of the world have lost their arcane character and now possess only that of a That-mystery.
The doctrine of the Return does without a creator, sustainer, designer, saviour or redeemer God, without a demiurge, without a finite beginning in time, and accordingly without an end or purpose or final state, i.e. without teleology, without finalism, but also without a metaphysical ultimate ground, without a justifying foundation, further without organological or mechanic implications, without humanisation and without deification of the world, without metaphysical and/or moral burdens of justification, and again without dualistic and world-unifying doctrines of salvation, redemption or happiness.
In the thought of the Eternal Return of the Same, a large part of the problems that have occupied a cardinal position in the occidental tradition and have been among the most discussed questions are solved by stating and synthesising the conditions under which they can no longer occur as problems.
The idea of Return is thus an extraordinary coup, not because it subtly refutes individual arguments or entire worldviews, but because it fundamentally changes the schema in which these problems could be meaningful in the first place. This does not simply make previous interpretations "wrong". Given the interpretive character of any worldview, such a view would be naive and would implicitly raise problems of justification once again. But these world interpretations now appear as figures of interpretation that have grown old, as interpretations whose time has passed. In positive terms, the exclusion of the above-mentioned onto-theological commitments is tantamount to securing the full immanence of the world and the interiority of the power relations that constitute it against any kind of renewed threat from gnostic metaphysics and dualisms.
It is only the idea of Eternal Recurrence that unites the two "greatest" philosophical standpoints, the problem of becoming and the question of the value of existence, thinks them in their original unity and leads them to a common solution. Eternal recurrence is conceived in such a way that it arises as a consequence of the becoming character of the becoming world as its form of development and original history, and in this it is at the same time the highest possible expression of the inestimability of existence as a whole and in each of its individual moments. That everything becomes and eternally returns is the succinct turn of phrase that emphasises the union of the two spheres of becoming and valuing, which are only apparently separated by a logical gap. At the same time, a separate effect is produced with regard to each of the two sides of this one connection. First, it must be stressed that becoming has priority over being. The latter is derived from the former, not the other way round. According to Nietzsche, one must give a "deeper meaning and richer value" to becoming than to what "is". And as far as the value of being is concerned, under the conditions of Eternal Recurrence and thus of supreme esteem or principled invalidation, it can no longer be a matter of the "wretched form of German pessimism".
Moreover, the idea of the Eternal Return of the same overcomes nihilism, because nihilism's judgement of the meaninglessness of all existence has no basis in a world of periodic recurrence. If 'meaning' is not something given, but something that must always be produced, then the resentment of the meaninglessness of existence is either an indication that we still reckon with a meaning in itself that exists somewhere, even if it is hidden, or a psychological and existential expression of the difficulties of not being able to live without a pre-given meaning, or of not being able to cope with the loss of meaning. On closer inspection, under the conditions of the new interpretation of the world and of the self, all the discomfort comes to nothing.
What is the point of complaining about not being able to discover meaning in itself, if meaning cannot be something given, cannot be an in-itself at all?
The idea of the Eternal Return of the same drives to the extreme the despair that sets in for the human - all-too-human - understanding of existence after the experience of God's death and the associated insight into the meaninglessness of the sequences of events and the aimlessness and purposelessness with and in the processes of becoming. For from the perspective of the Eternal Return, all being is eternally without a given meaning and without a given goal or a goal given by an overall meaning. The most "paralysing" and disappointing thought is therefore the idea of a "duration, with a 'for nothing', without goal and purpose". Nietzsche demands that this thought be thought in its "most terrible" form, that is, in connection with the doctrine of repetition: "existence as it is, without meaning and purpose, but inevitably recurring, without a finale into nothingness".
The doctrine of Recurrence is thus initially the "most extreme form" of nihilism: "nothingness (the 'meaningless') eternal! But the illusionless crossing of this bottom contains in itself the experience that, if there is no given meaning, precisely because of this, everything and anything becomes non-devaluable or absolutely valuable.
First of all, it is inevitable to go through nihilism to its outermost form. Anything else would only be a broken or atavistically distorted nihilism. But it is not a question of stopping "at the negation, at the no, at the will to no". Rather, this thinking wants to "go all the way to the opposite, to the Dionysian yes to the world as it is, without deduction, without exception, without choice". And such an unconditional affirmation, taken to its logical conclusion, implies the will to have the Eternal Circular Return of everything and everyone. Otherwise the affirmation would not be unconditional and complete. This attitude to existence is the highest state a philosopher can attain.

2023.06.09 23:50 Dragonfly_dreamer Working for What?

My husband and I are not young or old, we have a preteen, both of us work, have been working since the day we could. We rent a small house, each have a vehicle (only one we pay on), a dog and a cat. We would be considered the very definition of a "nuclear family" today.
The problem is we have always made JUST ENOUGH to get by with enough to do something fun locally like movies or to the carnival, when in town, once a month... Which I guess I should be appreciative of given the current state of things, but it still SUCKS!
We each have vacation days but never use them for vacation. We have never seen an ocean or a mountain in our lives. Instead we forfeit them or take them one by one just to have a break here and there because 1. Our employers have made it abundantly clear that they can't function without us for more than 2 days in a row without a catastrophic meltdown and 2. there is no way for us to afford a real vacation even though we both work okay jobs - Saving up for a vacation isn't really feasible when living paycheck to paycheck. We've tried saving several times but life has always gotten in the way and money had to go elsewhere.
People should be working so that they can enjoy their life- not ONLY to meet the minimum of living it...

2023.06.09 23:47 Diligent-Emperor4839 [30/M] Looking for someone

Hi everyone! I live in The USA CST & I will like to meet an interesting down to earth woman 18+ who will like to develop a strong relationship with a man who is also down to earth. I will also like to meet someone that I can have a deep conversation about anything, but also someone who doesn't mind having a casual conversation.
Likes: Cooking, baking, MTB, playing with my dogs, reading, listening to audio books, astronomy, exercise (in general, e.g. swimming, walking, hiking, calisthenics, etc.) watching movies, tv (action, adventure, romance, comedy, sci fi, horror, thriller) playing video games, (PC, Android, XBOX, Nintendo) card games, board games, partying, drinking moderately, listening to music, traveling, etc.
I don't expect you to like everything I like, but I hope we can find something in common. I enjoy living life and in spite of all the trials that life has for each of us, I have a very positive attitude. So, it will be great if I can find someone that has a similar attitude. We can talk about anything (as long as you're respectful.) We can also voice/video chat once I know we get along. I'm not interested in only texting each other, I prefer to video/voice chat and texting depending on the situation.
P.S. Don't send me a message if you're married or you have a boyfriend, because I'm not into those things. I prefer to not talk to women that smoke/heavy drinkers/drug users or someone with too many tattoos. I'm not interested in talking with someone who doesn't like to put energy into a relationship, because I need someone that can match my energy, I'm also not interested in talking with someone that has children, because some day I hope to have children of my own.
Don't be creepy! No drama queens!
P.S. I am Roman Catholic and my faith is very important. So, it will be wonderful if I can meet someone with the same views. In addition, my faith is personal & I don't like to impose my views on anyone. Furthermore, please don't send me a message if you're bored and you're looking for someone to distract you, because I'm not here to amuse anyone. I do not mind if you're taller or shorter than me, or if you're blonde or redhead.
DM me if you're interested and we will take it from there. :)

2023.06.09 23:43 Status_Job6324 Yay for this group!

I am so freaking glad to finally see this snark page. I hate follow them and they give off some weird, ick vibes. I’m all for home schooling if that’s what you wanna do. But at this point her kids aren’t learning ANYTHING! I feel like they are hiding some deep secrets. Their wishy washy bs is getting old along with her know it all, condescending attitude. They strike me as the type of people that would deny their children major medical care in favor of “holistic healing”.

2023.06.09 23:39 not_a_library What are YOUR weird food combos?

I know they have done a few episodes with the internet's weird viral food, but what's something YOU personally have done or do that might be considered weird or unappetizing? I can share some of mine to start.
Dunno if there's an episode idea here really, but it could be a fun twist on the viral gross food game. More personal to the mythical beasts.
Please tell me what food crimes you have committed!

2023.06.09 23:36 careless_bodyguard 32 [M4F] California/ Anywhere/Online let’s see if there’s chemistry

Hello 👋 I hope everyone is enjoying their day/night depending on where you are located. I wish to find someone I truly connect with on a deeper level & create lasting memories.
A bit about myself: I was in the US Marines about 10 years ago. I would consider myself tall standing at 6'1 & I'm in fairly good shape. I'm employed & live on my own. I have a dog that I spend most of my free time with, definitely interested in trading pet pics. I also grow cannabis as a hobby so let me know if you want to see some of my plants. Capricorn sun for those of you into astrology. I love reading, last book I finished was Meditations by Marcus Aurelius. I like almost all major sports but haven't been keeping up like I used to. I also enjoy gaming although it's been a few weeks since I've turned on my PC or PS5 haha. I'm on the introverted side but not shy by any means & can definitely hold a conversation. I also like trying out new foods.
About you: I'm not too picky about looks but I do want to feel some sort of attraction towards you. I'm more interested in your mind more than anything. I know we all have our days but hopefully you have a good positive attitude for the most part. A sense of humor would also be a huge plus. Looking for 25+ but at the very minimum be at least 21 if you're going to contact me
If any of this interests you feel free to send me a chat. I'm willing to share my pic if you share yours or we can just keep things a mystery for a while haha. Either way no pressure here. Looking forward to talking to you

2023.06.09 23:32 irenejellybean908 My boyfriend broke up with me last night

I went out to an emo themed night at a club in la with my boyfriend. We just got back together and I was so happy, so I decided to go and we planned to go to universal studios Hollywood tomorrow for my birthday but I decided to get sloppy drunk and had a meltdown because he didn’t let me have one last drink since I was already so gone. He got me home and I don’t remember much but I just remember being so angry with him and probably calling him every curse word in the book. I called off work today because we work together and I don’t think I can go today without crying in front of everyone. All because I needed that one last drink.

2023.06.09 23:31 Endoisanightmare I feel so useless. There are so many things i must do and i cant catch up

I know that many of you know this feeling but when i try to talk about it with others nobody else except you seem to understand it
I can do so little and i have so many things i must do. From the very basics of laundry, cooking, dog care, cleaning etc. To all the new chores I got lately. Me moved to a new house about 6m ago. And there is so much to do. I cant keep up. I take so long to do everything that things pile up. By the time i fix 1/4 of the fence the plants i put in the terrace start to die, then i need to deweed the garden, empy the boxes with stuff that we didnt empty yet, find a gardener to help me make a garden, train the dogs, do the taxes, water the plants, deal with the leaks of the house, deal with our crazy neighbor that wont allow us to go upstairs to repair the leaks...And thats only talking about the things i cant keep up with but i can slowly do and without talking about the ones that i am unable to do. Like move the firewood so it dries and doesnt rot in the garden, sandpaper the doors, hang the mailbox (the stone is too hard for me to drill), put lights in the outside walls....
I am breaking my body and soul working and i still dont get anything done at all. And everyone judges me for it. If i hear again my family asking why the garden isnt fixed or when are we going to the the guest room i swear that i will yell. None of my relatives or friends have offered help with the heavy chores that i cant do.
And my husband does nothing at all, he gives all his energy to work and in the evenings or weekends he does nothing at all. Today i was having a breakdown in the kitchen because my body hurts a lot (it has been hurting a lot more lately) and i feel worthless and useless. All while i was filling the dishwasher and cleaning the kitchen (after watering the plants, taking the dogs to pee in the garden and put the car to charge). He was eating some sandwich in the kitchen while i was moving around really busy while telling him about how stressed i am and how useless i feel. And there he was eating his fucking sandwich and being in the middle instead of helping.
He came after i while "wishing that he could help me". When i said that there are things that he could do to help, just ask me he clarified "to improve your mood". I dont need ny mood to improve i need him to fucking move the wood before it rots or take the dogs for a run so they calm down....
Anyways i tried to sleep but i am in too much pain and too kuch anxiety so i cant sleep. I cant stop thinking about all the things that need to be done and how many years it might take me to do them. That assuming that i dont collapse and then what? Who will do them?
And no, please dont say "those things dont need to be done". Because i need laundry, i need to do groceries, to cook, to care for the dogs.... Even if we forget about the superficial like the garden (which makes me mad because everyone criticises) there are still too many things that i need to do and i cant.
I just hate my useless body and mind

2023.06.09 23:31 NietzscheanWhig Nietzsche on the need to have judgments

In The Gay Science, Nietzsche makes a number of famous criticisms of Stoicism. In aphorism 306, he describes the Stoics thus:
The Stoic...accustoms himself to swallow stones and vermin, glass-splinters and scorpions, without feeling any disgust: his stomach is meant to become indifferent in the end to all that the accidents of existence cast into it:
Nietzsche thus characterises the Stoics as people who want to numb themselves to life, to make themselves indifferent to everything and blindly accept everything that happens to them. Superficially, the Stoic idea of accepting everything in life as logically necessary is similar to Nietzsche's ideal of amor fati, but the difference is that Nietzsche believes that no affirmation of existence is perfect unless we also affirm the need to make value judgments about the world, and to adopt a selectivity in our approach to the world around us. In fairness, the Stoics also talk about this - in Meditations, Marcus Aurelius emphasises the fact that we have no control over the external world, but we can control our perception of it, and thus our emotions, and therein lies the secret to living a Stoic life. Nietzsche, with his rejection of free will, would probably reject the idea that we even have free will over our consciousness, let alone control our emotions or the external world. We cannot choose the drives that we are born with. At most, we can use them and channel them to create a more integrated self in the life-affirming spirit of Nietzsche's philosophy, but we cannot and should not destroy them or seek to numb ourselves to them, for we are depriving ourselves of useful self-knowledge in so doing. Even those drives which morality has demonised as evil are, after all, useful to human flourishing. A Nietzschean as opposed to a Stoic conception of amor fati believes that the affirmation of life also means affirming our natural emotions and instincts when confronted with what is repulsive to our nature, rather than trying to suppress them and denying to oneself the full essence of our humanity. One can only 'become what one is' by allowing that 'is' to manifest itself as fully as possible.
The psychological mutilation encouraged by Stoicism is life-denying, not life-affirming, because emotions and value-judgments are central to life, and both are interdependent. Stoicism, with its celebration of impersonal objectivity, and its subordination of the self to the constraints of 'duty', couldn't be more different from the deeply personalistic conception of Nietzsche's amor fati. To love life means to embrace the necessarily subjective nature of our judgments, not see this as a bad thing, like the Stoics do. To accept the logical necessity of everything that happens in one's life is not to refrain from having opinions about it or allowing oneself to feel anger, disgust or contempt. Nietzsche argues that a sure sign of decadence in our modern era is the hostility to value judgments and the triumph of 'objectivity' and 'art for art's sake', which he saw manifested in the rise of literary schools like Naturalism and the belief that the accumulation of knowledge and the hunt for 'objective' truth were good in and of themselves, regardless of whether they damaged our experience of life. In Will to Power, Nietzsche attacks various aspects of modernity that he associates with the rise of this unhealthy rejection of subjectivity and value judgments...
The want of discipline in the modern intellect dressed in all sorts of moralistic attire... 'Tolerance' (that is, the inability to affirm or negate). ...'Objectivity', or, equivalently, the want of personality, want of will and the inability to love. ...'Truth' as opposed to forgery and chicanery (naturalisme). 'Scientific' (the 'document humain') or, as we would say, the colportage novel, addition instead of composition.
Nietzsche also says the following:
We know the sort of person who is enamoured of the sentence 'tout comprendre c'est tout pardonner'. They are weak and, above all, frustrated; but if there is something to be forgiven in all, is there not also something to be despised in all?
Opposed, as ever, to any moral absolutes or pretensions to objectivity, Nietzsche believes that a healthy attitude to life involves not a blind affirmation of everything, but a more nuanced approach - a love of life combined with a contempt for that which takes away from one's enjoyment of life, from one's feeling of power. Amor fati means embracing one's will to power and one's need to critique, judge and select those aspects of life which most strengthen and enhance one's being. Additionally, one might look back on and critique aspects of one's own existence, without denying the logical necessity of these aspects of one's life.
A love of the earth actually enhances the need for value judgements, because a full, rich existence is not possible without them. The pessimism of the Naturalist writers of the nineteenth century was the logical conclusion of the crisis in morality that the whole of Europe had been undergoing since Christianity was discredited. The failure of one set of value judgements led to the rejection of the very act of valuing altogether. Our contemporary Western societies, where 'tolerance' is upheld as the highest good and value judgement condemned altogether as an act of 'oppression', could not have been farther from Nietzsche's ethos. Here, the attitude of the extreme 'objectivists' is given a post-modern flip - now, in the name of the sacred subjectivity of supposedly equal human beings, it is insisted that all value judgements should be regarded as equal and no set of judgments should be considered superior to another. Nietzsche would have repudiated this as nihilism. To affirm life means to affirm judgement, to affirm the very idea that there exist things which are contemptible to one and to justify it.

2023.06.09 23:28 demobod AITA for addressing toxic behavior between me and my ex-crush after her reaching out (knowing full well I had a crush on her and friendzoning me)?

I (24M) have this friend (23F) with whom my relationship has always been complicated. We've had our fair share of fights and disagreements, and it seems like things just never quite smooth out between us. Recently, though, she reached out to console me after the tragic passing of a mutual friend.
During our conversation, we brought up the idea of rekindling our friendship, stating that we had both apologized for our previous fight and she wanted us to be on good terms again. Seemed like a reasonable proposition, right? Well, that's when I decided to address a concerning aspect of our friendship.
She had warned me about people talking about me that I'm a 🍃 user and spreading a 'junkie' reputation about me. Naturally, I was taken aback and felt the need to address this issue and asked her for the names of these individuals so that I could better "watch my back" like she was telling me. She outright refused to provide me with any names, following with: she didn't owe me all the answers or every little explanation.
To complicate matters further, my friend is currently in a committed, monogamous relationship. And given our complicated history and the fact that every message from her is painful for me, I can't help but question the appropriateness of her reaching out to me like this. I wonder if she's even aware of the emotional toll it takes on me, and if she is aware, how can she continue to engage with me under these circumstances? This wasn't a silly, surface-level crush. I wonder how I can convey it to her in a nice way, that even if her boyfriend doesn't mind that she's talking to someone who was into her, she still shouldn't talk to me because I was deeply committed to her. We were old adolescents when we met and we graduated together. We were spending full days together for weeks, just chilling. I'm not good with words... Even in our high school, we were a cool duo and numerous of people thought about us together.
I brought up all of these things and she's still convinced she's not doing anything wrong. It was kind of her to reach out about our deceased friend, but let's face it, people die every day. If she actually needed support from me, she knows there was a day where I would've given her my world. It's safe to say that I don't like this game with her. She also proceeded by saying that she forgot the faces of the gossippers and can only recall them by features. I don't believe her. I don't even care about that whole issue now, the fact that she said even if she did know their names and did feel like not saying them to me, she would still be right and entitled to it, makes this issue so much more of a red flag for me. Am I the asshole for confronting her about this toxic behavior? She's now saying she doesn't like my tone or my attitude. It seems to me as though she's still concerned about how stuff is being said, and not what is being said, and I'm really, very tired of tolerating ingenuine relationships.
Please be kind in the comments 🥺 TY ^

2023.06.09 23:25 spicey_b1tch i’m back to where i started again

Not so long ago I was studying really hard at school, up early to go to the gym 3 days a week and go kickboxing to other two. I was making some extra money on the side selling clothes, and eating good and i felt great. over the last few weeks I stopped trying to sell clothes, stopped getting up early. I go to the gym once or twice a week if it all now, and i still go to my kickboxing but with a different attitude than before. My meals are few and far between now and often just whatever I can afford. i haven’t sold anything for weeks and my studying is pretty patchy to say the least. Now i feel like shit, and it’s not the first time. before this I was in a similar situation: i was working hard as a gardener and tutor on the weekends, and I was doing really well at school. I was in the gym 3 times a week and kickboxing once a week and then it just all fell away and i was back to where I am now. I’ve been through this more than twice and every time it all just falls apart and i’m back to sitting around my house as soon as I get home or all weekend scrolling through my phone doing nothing useful and feeling like shit but for some reason it’s when i’m here that I cant seem to get myself up. I feel absolutely trapped in this negative feedback loop of as soon as things start going well i throw it all away.
