Well to play devils advocate here I’d heard stories from people who have gotten paralyzed completely or had to relearn how to speak or otherwise having to relearn how to live telling everyone they wish they could just kill themselves… TBC
I understand that, but as a fully able-bodied person, that’s a ridiculously disgusting thing to say about others. You are not in their shoes, you have no right to say such a thing. I understand if someone themselves in a situation says something, that’s their own issue. [I too have heard of people themselves in such situations wishing for death instead of the hard work they have to go through daily just to live.] Advocating suicide for others [that you have nothing to do with] though? Not cool in my book, it’s an automatic write-off.
Edit: As someone who’s experienced a family memeber’s suicide [suicide partly due to his disabilities from an accident] it really upsets me to hear other’s that AREN’T in that situation say they think people like that should just kill themselves.
When people are talking about others who have been in an accident and/or have gotten so physically injured they will never be able to live ‘normally’ again, and they say if they were in such a situation, they would just kill themselves. ‘What’s the point of even living? Why do they bother?’, they say. I just want to slap them. I don’t know, I think that’s just such a disgusting, inhumane thing to say because of someone’s disability. Stfu>fo.
I’ve answered this question before here. Just to be nice I’ll copy&paste for you;
No, I do not follow back automatically unless you are a page with strong scientific, historical, and/or political content, and/or a page examining religious/non-religious topics/information. Even then, I have over 3000 followers and counting. This means I do not had much time to see if there are any quality pages that fit my requirements for following, that I would love to see on my dashboard.
That being said, if any of you feel you have a worthwhile page with lots of informative/interesting content, feel free to drop me a message and say hellooff anon. I will gladly check out your page.
I was really high one day and a friend explained to me the real premise of Rugrats. I damn near fainted because I was like no fucking way! Look it up on wikipedia!
Haha that Angelica is really a schizophrenic? Yeah, I know what you’re talking about, but sorry to be the bubble buster, it’s actually the premise of a paper written by a college student to show the manipulation of basic characters, and their ‘back stories’, with basic psychological insight. I can’t find the source right now, but when I do I’ll post it up. It’s a cool story, but sadly, I’m almost 100% positive it’s not real. I’m a bit in love with mental-disorders, so I ate that story up when I heard it, hoping it was true, but upon further research found out it was merely a student’s doing for a class paper. There was also a similar paper written for Doug, proposing mental disorder[s] as an explanation for his vivid imagination [ie. Quail Man].
But the overly-common downsides to these asks, are the prevailing fears of failing due to a not-quite-outstanding understanding of mathematics. So they ask if maybe they should just do something else, because of the possibility of failing, or making mistakes. I always reply to peruse it anyway, if the passion is strong enough, and that nothing worth having and/or achieving is easy. I really want to push it into all of my reader’s minds that if it’s hard, but mutually exciting, then it’s probably worth doing.
Especially when it comes to a life choice as large as your ‘career’, or at least what you want to do with your life. I mean, I’m not going to sit here and tell you that it won’t be hard, or there won’t be mistakes, and sometimes a changing of paths. But I will tell you that when you’re on your deathbed, or having a mid-life crisis, or what have you - you won’t regret the way you lived your life, because you did what you were passionate about. Even if it was scary, even if it was the hardest thing you’ve ever done, and especially even if it didn’t fit into what society, or perhaps other people had ‘planned’ for you.
“He also encourages students to seek out “sparsely inhabited” areas of science where existing information seems “skimpy” and difficult to connect to other specialties. Then, look for a way to “break out.”
“Every problem is an opportunity,” he says. “The harder it is, the more important it is.” “
I have a lot of new people, so for those who seem to keep bringing up that they love science, but are bad at math, here’s an old post for you. Don’t be scared of math, of all things, and keep exploring the wonderful world of science. Enjoy. [:
