A cool guide: Greek Mythology Family Tree
  • Semele was just a priestess who got diddled by Zeus, as you do, and got pregnant with Dionysus.

    However, after shenanigans by Hera, she got tricked into asking Zeus to show himself to her in his full godly might, and because he was oathbound due to earlier power-of-boner stuff, he had to unwillingly comply.

    He tried his best to show the tiniest sliver of his true being that would count, but she was still mortal, and got burned in godly flame for just witnessing him.

    Zeus, saved the foetal Dionysus by strapping him to his thigh until the thigh-pregnancy was complete, and later, Dionysus found his mom in the underworld, and made her into the God of Drunk Frenzy.

    Following all that, Semele appears to be uppity about her incredible husband to her sister, because Semeles husband carried their fetus to term after Semele died, while her sister's husband was a mere wife-and-son-murder-attempter.

    I love out of context ancient greek mythology. Btw, all that, makes Dionysus the only god in this graph, apart from Gaia herself, to not be the product of direct incest. (Is brain-parthenogenesis incest? Who knows)

  • We don't live in a society that "can't meet our basic needs". We live in a society that actively prevents us from meeting them ourselves, by taking away the time and freedom necessary for us to grow into being capable.

    No one having kids is the only actual concern of theirs, mental illness is a feature.

    On one hand, an elaborate troll.

    On the other, a scientifically well-learned polyglot cattle-farmer from Nepal with an unreliable memory and a penchant for pedantry.

    There is only one type of job: Doing something someone else doesn't want to do.
  • Just as a sanity check for you, I think you're right about the people who choose to post on this thread.

    "Something someone can't do", is a subset of "job", because a "job" literally is something you get money for, because other people don't wanna do it for some reason.

    But the antiwork community is not here, and to be honest, your user of the word "type" in "only one type of job", muddles the meaning of the sentence a bit.

  • how do i lighten or reduce facial hair
  • Not very knowledgeable on all this, but, the best method is to one day get laser.

    That's probably not within your reach if you're asking so, let me say, from my experience with really visible, high contrast and dense body hair, any method of uprooting (plucking or waxing), both gives a pretty good result of hairlessness if you get all of them, and, after 2-3 cycles of growing and uprooting again, that hair is permanently 10-15% less visible (primarily thinner, also straighter). If you know where to look, my arm hair has a transition line between the side I plucked, and the side I haven't yet. It's unassuming, but still there, after plucking them 3 times, more than 4 months ago.

    The disadvantage of that is that you need to let them grow a bit, in order to have something to grab on to.

  • Is everyone here leftist?
  • I see. Well, if I take what you're saying as fully correct, then it sounds like communism compared to anarchism, is just "a different path for how we reach the same utopia".

    And this different path passes through more authority (quantity and quality), through the existence and emphasis of the state.

    How much authority, is probably what makes the spectrum of Anarchy to Stalin-Lenin.

    And well... As an anarchist, deafboy's comment might be polemic, but I get it. Any authority that can, will get corrupted.

    Uuhhh... help with new cat meeting old cat, or soothe me please

    Day 1, panicked cry for help

    Hello, I hope it's ok to not post a picture, I'm quite a mess right now. I lack sleep, and I'm stressed, and just stopping panicking, lying down to write this and sleep.

    I just brought home, on somewhat of a whim, the goodest and most communicative little boy cat from the street (he looks around or less than 6 months).

    And I already have a lovely, cranky, scaredy cat of a 6 year old lady (sterilised).

    I made the assumed mistake of letting them meet face to face as soon as I unlocked the door to the apartment.

    Anya (old lady cat) froze, and left, scared, and went to her room with her litterbox, and has stayed there since.

    The Boy, I left a bit around the apartment, to make sure he actually wants to stay instead of going back to the street (he loves it), took him outside and back once so he could emergency shit because he didn't like the sand in the second litterbox I prepared (maybe too little, I'll get more tomorrow), and now I've closed him in the WC, with a good-sized box with his new fluffy blanket, food and water for a day, and the insufficient but untouched litterbox. And he is very happy in his box, in the closed room.

    But in between all that, were the incidents:

    A couple of times, The Boy went into Anya's room, found her, sat far away, curled his tail around his feets, and slow-blinked at her. She was not accepting. Deep-mewls, staying as far as possible (cornered), raised hairs on tail, tail circling around her side not touching her body, lowered ears, wide eyes.

    He respected the distance.

    I put him in the bathroom, closed the door, put her food outside the door to the bathroom. Left him to relax (he is, he is fine). Sat with her in her room for half an hour, so she would relax. She did a bit. Still hasn't left her room, but came for pets after a while, in her room.

    So. Given how unprepared I am for this, and how much I love both kittens, what tips do you have for me? What to be careful of?

    The situation is not ideal. Is there any condition, where I should be prepared to send The Boy to be an outside cat, for the better of everyone?

    I'm dying of sleepiness, ask anything, and any help is welcome. Thank you so much for even reading all this. Now I'm gonna sleep, and I'll be back in the morning.

    Day 2 update edit: Okay, everything is smoother now. Further updates in body for everyone interested, but thanks a lot either way, all this info was pretty helpful, directly or indirectly, and just writing this all down has helped immensely with my maddening anxiety with this whole situation.

    The boy got vet-ted, he has nothing serious, just a little snot for which I'll be giving him a small antibiotics treatment.

    good boy spiel

    He is a very good boy, smartest and most communicative and trusting cat I've ever met, and even after the messy vet visit, he still repeatedly chose to come back with me whenever I gave him the choice of returning where I found him, or even just outside the building. No, he wants to be here. That fact helped me calmed down a lot.

    Current situation

    Currently, the boy has gorged himself full, from the stress of the vet visit no doubt, and is contently sleeping in his box in the closed bathroom. Anya is walking around the house, generally smelling everything, and paying occasional attention to the bathroom door. She is eating and drinking normally every so often, eyeing warily the faraway but visible door. She no longer looks actively scared or stressed, looking ok enough with the current arrangement.

    Short term plans

    I read Jackson's guides, and they've been really helpful for context and building intuition, but neither my house, nor my situation allow really following them step by step, so we're gonna wing it a bit.

    I'm going to have each of them inside their own room (different rooms) for a portion of each day, leaving the other one to roam the entire house for that time. Anya evening to noon (play->sleep->job->relax) time, the boy the rest. I'm lucky I have 5 days off work starting today, to give them the attention they need.

    Once I find out why I can't upload pictures, I will show the kitties off, and give an update on their situation.

    Thanks everyone!
