No, my mom isn't down a lot. Maybe once a year we watch Shaun of the Dead.
I like a lot of Swedish metal, so it doesn't surprise me you haven't heard of them. Plus, they might count as indie bands...? I don't know.
Here, one of my favorite Sonata Arctica songs: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5yszaOJHPjA
Mellow doesn't equate to making someone feel depressed. It just means it's calmer. It's the equivalent of smoking marijuana. Both aren't my style. Didn't like MJ, and not a huge fan of mellow music. No biggie. *shrugs*
Heh, and it segues into your next paragraph perfectly. They probably are smoking weed, but what does it matter?
Supposedly, marijuana has medicinal properties that heal every illness from cancer to the bubonic plague (exaggeration... probably). It's all in one particular component though. I don't remember which one, but if they isolated that and made it into something you didn't smoke, I'd be all over that. I hate how weed makes me feel though, probably because I'm already a laid back person so weed just makes me feel lethargic.
Anyway, there's a lot of nasty things in cigarettes. The addictive part is the nicotine (insecticide), but there's other harmful things. Acetone, found in nail polish; ammonia, household cleaner; arsenic, commonly used in poisons; butane and hexamine which are both found in lighter fluid; etc, etc. There's like 600 ingredients in all.
See, there's a difference between potheads and stoners. If I'm remembering correctly, stoners are 'functional pot heads', meaning they work and raise kids without issues while also smoking weed to relax. Potheads are non-functional. They just sit on their asses, get baked, and say the dumbest shit. I used the wrong term last time.
My best friend is a stoner. I hate when he's high and he knows it because it's like talking to a dumb talking dog (like Doug from the movie Up.) However, he's successfully raising his little girl and he has weed for medical reasons (extreme back pain to the point he can barely move).
My ex boyfriend, however, was a pot head. He though he said these really profound things while high, but actually he was just being stupid. Then he'd giggle at his own sentences.
Stoners are generally geniuses, in my experience. Their IQs are super high and I love talking to them when they're not baked. Intellect is a huge turn on for me, always has been. Some people just seem to retain everything they ever learned, and it seems those people are the ones who wind up stoners.
The masks wouldn't be for simulating altitude, you wear them IN high altitudes to help yourself breathe easier... There's some kind of miscommunication here.
I'm confused. Were you okay with not talking to him again because he's had a shitton of boyfriends, or were you sad to not talk to him again?
Also, did they seriously say "autism victims"...? I would be pissed if someone said that to me. Like, autism isn't a fucking death sentence. It's not some bad thing that happened to you that ruins your life. It's not like rape, it's a fucking SYNDROME. It's a mental disorder that you can't cure. Jesus fucking christ, people piss me off.... PLEASE tell me you have a law in Germany against discrimination of people. I'd fucking sue their asses off for something like that, "you can't work here because you're autistic." Fuck you, corporate cows!
Okay, okay. I took a few deep breaths, I'm okay. There's not much that gets me that enraged, but ignorance is one of those things. Do you have Atypical available in your country? We may have discussed this already. It's on Netflix, it's about an autistic kid going through everyday life and the issues he faces. He's more severe than either of us, but he's still high functioning. The new season just came out, and they're trying to change how emergency responders deal with auties.
Our history books are wrong, and it sounds like yours are too.
First of all, in America, everyone praises Abraham Lincoln for eradicating slavery, but that was never his intention in the civil war. In fact, the ones who lost (south) in reality had less slaves overall than the north. I don't want to misquote anything, but I'm pretty sure Lincoln owned slaves. They still try to make white people feel guilty about their ancestors owning slaves, and many blacks think they have a right to whatever the hell they want because their great grandmothers worked the cotton fields.
The fact is, many slave owners were black. The ones who took blacks from Africa and sold them in America as slaves were black. Yet, we're supposed to feel guilty for something we had no control over.
Now, as for YOUR history books. 7 million Jews were not killed. It's impossible. If Hitler had killed that many Jews, there'd be none left. The Germans were fastidious in record-keeping, so that number is greatly exaggerated to make Germans feel guilty for something that happened before many of you were born.
This is a long read, but I'll share a snippet, "My name is Robert Litoff...I was born in New Haven, Connecticut in 1945 of two Jewish parents...all my ancestors are Jews...The claim that 6 million Jews died during World War II is wrong.
During the war period, before and shortly afterward, 5 million Jews went to Israel, and the Jewish population of North America increased from 4 million to 6 million.
Jews also went to Brazil, Argentina, Australia and other nations. This accounts for the decrease of 6 million Jews in Europe.
The world Jewish population was 15 million circa 1929 but it reached an estimated high of 18 million in 1989, an increase of 16%, which would have been impossible if 6 million Jews died in World War II."
It's an interesting read, just long: http://www.realjewnews.com/?p=943
Well, not all Jews are evil, however there's a portion of them that could be considered as such: the culture of the Talmud, which... is about the filthiest, most hateful book on the face of the earth – a book that states, “Even the best of the Gentiles should ALL be killed.” If that is not HATE-speech – then what is? (source: https://www.goodnewsaboutgod.com/studies/political/jews/hate_victims.htm )
There was also warmongering by them in America against the Russians: http://www.realjewnews.com/?p=932
Jews are more than just a simple religion, though. Someone said it was a culture, which I can understand. Scientifically speaking, there's only like 4 races--Jewish (I'll explain why in a moment), white, black, and Asian. Biologically, they're considered races because of their genes/DNA. That's also what dictates your outward gender. I'll use Michael Jackson as an example here. He changed his outer appearance to be as white as possible (and maybe female?), but his genes would still say "black male" if anyone looked at them.
See, scientifically there's a gene Jews have, it was apparently discovered around 2012:
In his new book, “Legacy: A Genetic History of the Jewish People,” Harry Ostrer, a medical geneticist and professor at Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York, claims that Jews are different, and the differences are not just skin deep. Jews exhibit, he writes, a distinctive genetic signature...Geneticists have long been aware that certain diseases, from breast cancer to Tay-Sachs, disproportionately affect Jews...DNA ensures that we differ not only as individuals, but also as groups. However slight the differences (and geneticists now believe that they are significantly greater than 0.1%), they are defining. That 0.1% contains some 3 million nucleotide pairs in the human genome, and these determine such things as skin or hair color and susceptibility to certain diseases. They contain the map of our family trees back to the first modern humans.

My brother and I both know what the bible says about Jews (grew up Christian, remember?), but if you look at their history, it seems more like they were just a disappointment to God. They were stuck in the desert for 40 years. Plus those 'blessed' people were rounded up into concentration camps. (and I smile at this because of a South Park episode...)
The quality is awful, but it's too hilarious not to share: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3UDl6iRnQB4
You're right that the bible doesn't originally say anything about homosexuality, but the translations were changed. In 382 AD (I guess it's 'CE' now?), the Catholic church took apart the bible, deciding which books went in.
The books that didn't make it are now in the Apocrypha.
In English at least, there are so many scriptures against homosexuality. For a long time I felt guilty for being what I am, until I found a movie called Fish out of Water (on Netflix at the time) where a lesbian who grew up christian went to find out what the original translation said. It was so freeing to watch that I cried the first time I watched it.
I only mentioned my girlfriend because I feel awful for liking someone else while sort of dating her, but like I said it's been a month with no contact from her... Are we even still together after that long? I don't even know... I actually sent her screenshots of funny parts of the Attack on Titan manga yesterday and while I was in the middle of writing you, I saw she'd been online but still didn't respond. I actually got really disappointed and had to swallow my depression to keep writing, and that was about my second paragraph. She's also told me before she'll appear offline when she doesn't wanna talk to someone, so I'm wondering if she's done that with me lately...
Anyway, he's definitely my type. Kinda heavy, lumberjack beard, great sense of humor.
The one I told her involved blood everywhere. I told her I didn't need blood to be satisfied, but I guess I just freaked her out too much.
That's similar to what I want. I want to build my own estate on acres of land where I can have a buttload of dogs and they have room to run around. I also have to include a lazy river for my mom, haha.
I never really thought about the type of furry I'd be. In the game Amorous (PC only), I made my character male with large, pointy ears. You could also choose scales instead of fur, but I went with fur. I also gave him a long snout. So I guess a fox would be closest, though I colored him black and white. I liked watching his white thighs in throes of passion, haha.
I've seen Memento, but not The Haunting of Hill House. It's on my list though. I've just been in a horror movie mood lately, so I've been watching things that end in like 2 hours.
