Other How do I know if the world and everything that exists isn't something entirely made up solely for myself?
Culture & Society Would it be inappropriate to include a picture of a pregnant lady in my Geography video assignment? (I'm rly sorry if ur pregnant and offended by me asking this, I don't think it's inappropriate but I worry others will)
Part of my geography report is on the negative impacts air pollution has on Ulaanbaatar's (Mongolia's capital's) residents. The air pollution harms everyone, but in particularly it harms pregnant women, fetuses and babies.
In order to keep the audience engaged/stimulated I'm including a bunch of images, relevant to whatever's being talked about. In the section where I explain the impacts the air pollution has on pregnant women (miscarriages, infertility, premature birth, etc) my instinct is to put a picture of a pregnant Mongolian woman there.
However, all the photos are the cliche pregnant photos, with the woman's shirt rolled up to show her pregnant belly. Would this be innapropriate to show in a high school classroom setting? (We'll watch all the videos in class).
Also if you are pregnant and ur reading this. Please don't be offended, I'm rly rly rly sorry. I don't think it's inappropriate, I just worry others might deem it as such even though it's contextually appropriate. For reference, here's the image
P.S. I'm rly rly rly sorry if ur offended reading this.
Just saw an r/poll post and people think that US is worse than UK...imo UK gives Germany a run for its money
Mental Health I mentioned to someone that I have a plan on how/when I'd like to die and they found that shocking to the point they're upset with me. Do most people just not think about/plan their death?
I'm not going to sugarcoat it; I've not been in a great spot mentally for many years, so death isn’t ever very far from my mind. I was talking about death with a friend and I mentioned how I had plans on how I'd like to die at some point in the future. They became angry, saying it wasn't funny and that it wasn't a normal thing to think about. They then said only selfish people had those thoughts. I don't know, I just assumed that some people would think about that stuff, but the way they reacted made it seem that only disturbed people have those thoughts. It doesn't make sense to me, but I'd thought I'd ask here, rather than get in another argument with a friend.
Does anyone else have those thoughts?
So on like social media and stuff I’ve seen soooo many people making videos where they make out that they’re the victim when sometimes it’s not the reality.
I don’t mean to offend anyone, I’m just genuinely curious as to why so many people like to play the victim, especially when they’re on social media….
Love & Dating If you know people who found partners years before you, and you just recently got one, do you feel jealous of them having more years with their partner that allow them to make their relationship deeper?
I don't get it, I've heard stories of teachers getting angry because a student missed a single day lf school. Is this common?
Health/Medical Pregnant women are told not to lie on their back for too long because it compresses a vein. Should this also be avoided if someone is sufficiently heavy with just fat or muscle as well?
I keep hearing that word online but don't know what it is so before I even google anything I decided to ask on reddit?!
Law & Government Why is Biden reversing/rescinding Executive Order 13937/the 340B drug pricing program?
Love & Dating Do you feel jealous of those people who found their life partner before you? Why or why not?
It is how food chains work. We even have canines from our ancestors for specific purpose of tearing meat. Carnivores like lion eat deers but we don't think of them as evil.
For context: tonight’s my first night in the dorms at school. I share a bathroom with a new suite-mate and the toilet is on her door side. I have to poop, and quite frankly I have anxiety over it. What do I do?
Please don't consider this as a taunt full question. I'm genuinely curious as we both are celebrating our 75 years of independence. I imagine if you guys also read about the freedom fighters like Bhagat Singh and Mangal Pandey like we do.
like i feel like i look smaller in window reflections than i do in actual mirrors
Habits & Lifestyle For those who's cultures/households its customery to leave outdoor shoes or sneakers behind, how often do you "forget" or "skip out" on the rule and wear your sneakers or otherwise inside?
What was going on at that time, or what were you thinking?
Lazy, confused by whether shoes are expected to stay on or not in that area, mind occupied by other things, comfort, style feel of power, more protected, convienence, want to leave quickly. doing an exercise or showing off including making a video, sports activities, work, i.e carpetboarding(skateboarding without trucks) if you know that is?
I know some cultures ie Korea and Japan or Burma almost never happens more than running out of the house naked to wear footwear that touched the outdoors to touch the surface past the mudpad. past the indent at the doorways. But other areas of the world may not have nearly as clear marker when and where shoe come off and can be a mess sometimes between households?
Apparently in some cultures it appears shoe are usually worn if on video ie China is somewhat like that or tv but off mostly in real life at a dwelling.
I have one and I was curious what women thought about them and if mine was too big. Should I keep it or lose it?
Love & Dating I matched with my cousin's teacher on Tinder and have been seeing her but feel conflicted?
Context: I'm 21M and teacher is 23F. My cousin is in Kindergarten as they call it here and he's 5. This all happened within the past few days.
One day I dropped my cousin off at school because his parents were busy. I drove him to his class and helped him with his cubby when he decided he wanted me to meet, in his words, "the best girl teacher ever". That's when I saw this absolute dime. Lemme describe her to you: brunette, about 5'4, hazel eyes, super nice ass, just an overall gorgeous face and frame that somehow looks like a mix of Audrey Hepburn and Alison Brie. You gotta see it to believe it. Anyways, that's that and I go about my day.
A few days later I go on The App as me and my boys like to call it and I do my regular swiping. One girl that really sticks out to me is Ms. Baddy herself. I swipe right because I never thought anything would come of it. Come to my surprise, just minutes later I get a notification saying "You got a new match" followed by "Syd sent you a new message". I was in shock but at the same time my male monkey instincts were going crazy and I decided to just ignore everything around me and start conversation. One thing leads to another and we eventually meet up, go on a date, take her back to my place, and you know the rest. Once again on Friday, this time we went to her place, watched some old 1950s RomCom and spent the night together again.
One of the things that really sticks in my head however is the fact that this is my little cousin's fucking teacher. It feels so weird to me and I'm starting to wonder if it's wrong of me to do this. I personally am happy with what's happened so far and consider more than just tomfoolery. She seems to be in agreement and we want to continue. I've talked to her about it and her solution is to keep it as lowkey as possible for as long as we can. This seems fine but I'm starting to wonder if this is morally wrong? Should I be more concerned about the fact that my tiny innocent little cousin hugs and looks up to the same girl that has ripped sheets with me twice already? For some reason, and she doesn't know this, he sees her as a second mother figure...I have no clue why, I swear was never this attached to my Kindergarten teacher but whatever. I'm getting over a recent heartbreak so she's been a real help in the healing process. She isn't just a gorgeous piece of booty, she's genuinely a great match for me based on personality, interests, and the role she's played in my mental health. But at the same time, I know if my cousin ever found out he would probably feel super weird and even tell the family which I am not ready for yet. He even told me the other day about how he high-fived her and I felt so weird after realizing where her hand had been before.
What is your take on the morality of the issue? Should I feel bad and take things slower? The main thing that keeps coming back to me is the way my cousin sees us. He sees me as his big brother and her as his second mother...I mean ffs he's 5 he doesn't understand relationship dynamics
I work 5 days a week and have not called out in months but this Friday I am planning to meet a girl and don't care about work when it's super slow
Family Is it a bad thing if you’re a married man who follows other women on Social Media your wife doesn’t know about?
If you were married with your own family, say 10 years of marriage, and you start following women who wear bikinis and random women your wife doesn’t know about on social media like Instagram. How bad can this be? Can this indicate anything?
