What's the difference between a realm and a private server? A realm is basically a virtual server run by Mojang or some ****, isn't it?

i will soon lose my job because someone reported me for harassment. while i never tried to hurt them, and only asked them how they were doing once per month because they seemed tired and worried... and yet i really do not want to fight it and want to let them kick me out. i dunno what is wrong with me, i fear that if i defend myself it will have adverse effects on them, and i think i'd rather lose everything than hurt them again.
i am a complete nutjob or is it normal to feel that way?

Anglo countries are so profoundly idiotic.
(...)Whereas back then I wrote about the tyranny of the majority, today I'd combine that with the tyranny of the minorities. These days, you have to be careful of both. They both want to control you. The first group, by making you do the same thing over and over again. The second group is indicated by the letters I get from the Vassar girls who want me to put more women's lib in The Martian Chronicles, or from blacks who want more black people in Dandelion Wine.
I say to both bunches, Whether you're a majority or minority, bug off! To hell with anybody who wants to tell me what to write. Their society breaks down into subsections of minorities who then, in effect, burn books by banning them. All this political correctness that's rampant on campuses is b.s.

i mean if it really is as simple as you say, it'd be bat**** to just accept that and equally as ridiculous to be concerned for them when you're simply defending yourself. although i have a feeling that if it was enough to be reported for harassment, there might be some more to this story

well we were good friend, i went into deep suicidal depression with covid lockdowns, they helped me get back up and then after i made a suicide joke and they stopped talking al together making me rather worried about them, and trying to fix things, prompting the asking how they felt every once in a while.
don't get me wrong, i am the one who hurt them most, kinda why i did not want to defend myself either.
and when i was sick i may have alluded that i loved them... so maybe that before a suicide joke did not help...

then after i made a suicide joke


When people make light of something that was recently deadly serious (no pun) it is profoundly disturbing to me.

At best it is disingenuous and insensitive, but generally I am left with the distinct impression that the crisis is still festering underground and is more likely to return than not.

Mistakes and danger are opportunities for learning and growth, and the best thing to do for yourself (and those around you) is to demonstrate that you fully understood the situation and are making efforts to ensure that it won't occur again.
What this shows is that the Republican Party knows, deep down somewhere, that even before Trump they had less than a policy agenda. All they’ve had for the past decade or so is strategy and tactics to suppress the vote, either through extreme gerrymandering or State-level laws. More often than not, as we’re seeing, through both. Without a stated party platform they are left with nothing but the insanity of The Power Grab and The Big Lie. The Party as a whole has, for some twisted logical reason, decided that America no longer needs Democracy. That in the bent and tortured reality Republicans have created for themselves America was never a Democracy, the Founders never intended for the country’s politics or social order to change, that the country’s democratic features would always only extend to wealthy White Christian property owners. They’ve also, collectively, decided that threatening major, multi-billion dollar corporations that employ tens, if not hundreds, of thousands of people worldwide will somehow, for some reason, cower in the corner when State politicians decide to take a few million in subsidies off the table. When faced with hundreds of millions, or even billions, in lost business because The People are voting with their wallet, I know where I’d position my company, and it’s not at the dinner table with Mitch McConnell and his wife.

That's blatantly against Capitalism.

Heart Attack is our #1 killer.  We know how to have 0 heart attacks, they figured it out in the 70s. The Pritikins Diet, that no one's heard of.

But 70% of large Hospital Income is from Heart related surgeries. People like pizza, and Hospitals like money. Capitalist Collusion.

Why Collusion, SUBSIDIES + Reglator capture. Even if you don't eat fish or beef or eggs or chicken or pork, you still pay for it in the form of taxes.

Young people are like that.

Remember high school,  remember the people who weren't learning anything,  now imagine poor people,  now imagine poor people with barely a high school education.

This represents the overwhelming majority of hughmahns.

We'd like to believe ery1 nos how to read/write/think.  That's just not true, they're a little smarter than dogs most of the time,  throw in insecurity and income gap.. BAM, Nazis are back.

frankly taking it lightly helps a lot, when you are in the thick of it, at least it helped me, and yeah it was insensitive for sure, i see it now, did not back then. and now that i have the missing pieces i understand but i only now got them, after 7 months of not knowing and doing the wrong things because i was worried.
going to get heard in 20 minutes, will make sure the jury get behind them, everything will be easier that way, they get what they want and so i kinda do too, everyone is a winner that way.

remember,  Confidence = Not Guilty

well that work when you do want to not be guilty, although the jury saw trough the fact that i was working hard against myself and i had to go against the person... i hate it but they would not let me... even had to tell them when there was a lie in the declaration...

on an other note,
r/mk

Why they gotta be condescending, passive aggressive, gatekeeping little dipsh!ts? I thought the keyboard community was better than that.
all communities have those and usually those are either the newer peoples or very old members. forums like GH tend to scare the younger and immature audience, and the community in itself is a bit too old to have the old gatekeepers, so forums seems like a sweet-spot, or at least that is my reading of it, i know i am useless at using reddit... well pretty much any social medias :)

Life insurance policies in my state have a 2 year clause for suicide, meaning it does not take effect for 2 years if the cause of death is suicidal.
That is such a long time to wait, but then again it won't really matter if you're already dead.

i am the only one seeing that as an incentive for the bank to try and make you suicide? if you do in the 2 years they keep the money, or am i reading that wrong? for some reason i have not trouble imagining a banker try that if it is the case...

If you're willing to invest money so someone gets rich when you die surely they're close enough to not put through dealing with a suicide (been there, the guilt at not preventing it is not fun) so what does it matter?

the eat veggies part is not going to do much, but picking up a new hobby if you are not too far gone already will help, not that i talk of experience of anything.
and also one thing that helps me a lot is to try and make peoples happier, i spend way too much money in gifts and cake supplies but then it prevent me from killing myself, so good overall, i think. although the downside of that is when i hurt someone it really hurts me inside, so i try to be the best i can.
oh and some doctors may be *******s, mine told me i could never get out of it without taking hard addictive drugs, that i refused to take because addictive.

the eat veggies part is not going to do much, but picking up a new hobby if you are not too far gone already will help, not that i talk of experience of anything.

yeah not got the budget for that, with the buying a house and caring for 4 random stray cats that came with the house :) and i already spent 1800 euros on gifts at xmas and one of my coworker really did not appreciate the gifts (i think she may have thought i wanted something back, it was a wrong assuption)... so i kinda reduced the amounts since then. and man you are a tiny bit far too :)

I am already trying to combat it.
Didn't pick up a new hobby but I have tons of videogames to play when the weather sucks. When the weather is good I try to be outside as much as possible. Luckily the wife loves the outside too, so we just chill on the terrasse.
I do need to excercise more though, I know that. So hopefully going to be taking some walks.

Judging by the happiness statistics, Danish doctors don't hesitate to prescribe antidepressants, so you'll be fine StickyBlueJuice  :)
(...)Whereas back then I wrote about the tyranny of the majority, today I'd combine that with the tyranny of the minorities. These days, you have to be careful of both. They both want to control you. The first group, by making you do the same thing over and over again. The second group is indicated by the letters I get from the Vassar girls who want me to put more women's lib in The Martian Chronicles, or from blacks who want more black people in Dandelion Wine.
I say to both bunches, Whether you're a majority or minority, bug off! To hell with anybody who wants to tell me what to write. Their society breaks down into subsections of minorities who then, in effect, burn books by banning them. All this political correctness that's rampant on campuses is b.s.

But who knows, glenn gould was on a massive amount of Dr00gs, he was a hypochondriac and went to multiple doctors taking multiple scripts of medication.   Sure he died young, but his pianism is top 10 in recorded history.

good thing for you, you have someone who is likely to support and help you, that is important, and she is unlikely to get scared of you if you give her love and cakes :)
and when it comes to exercise you can also do part of it indoor when it rains, during lock-down i did a lot of push ups and weight lifting with 5L water jugs for example.

Good. The word "antidepressant" is a misnomer. They should only be taken while undergoing therapy with a psychiatrist.
What the drug actually does besides mellowing your ups and downs is to make your mind more malleable, to make it easier for the psychiatrist to help you acquire better thought-patterns. But the drug could also make it easier to acquire destructive thought-patterns instead if there is nobody there to guide your way.

Then there's the month of use before it starts showing a positive effect, during which the drug induces a clinical depression which could be worse than what you had to begin with. There have been many cases of suicide within that first month.
Therefore, "antidepressants" without therapy often do more harm than good.

When the weather is good I try to be outside as much as possible. Luckily the wife loves the outside too, so we just chill on the terrasse.

Sounds good. Companionship, mild exercise and experiencing nature are natural antidepressants that do work!

That is a good idea.
I'm sure I can find something to lift. If nothing else I'll use the wood pellet bags we have. I think they're 15kg.

Yeah it's terrible stuff, the drugs. And they take years of your life too.

Got severe abdominal pain last night so I went to the emergency room. Got pain relief and diagnosed with having pushed out a gallstone.

What's bothering me the most though is that they had put me next to coughing COVID patients ...
So ... now I'm preparing for some self-isolation (even more than "usual") during which I'm waiting to either getting ill, or for finding myself all-clear in a couple of weeks.

WTF?! They don't have the covid patients in a dedicated ward or semi hermetically sealed off somewhere?

TLDR - scalpers, graphics cards, NVIDIA.

I've been using the same GPU in my rig since 2016, a GTX 1080. I'm aiming for the RTX 3080. Just want ONE GPU man!

Happened to be up last night and refreshed the Microcenter website, and they had restocked THREE RTX 3080's.... Why only 3??? I didn't check the Radeon cards.... Not my thing.

So by 4AM when I finally got to Microcenter, there were no less than 5 or 6 people camped out on the sidewalk in a line, chilling in beach chairs! (there were like 10 cars parked) They open at 10AM! It's insane. I saw the crowd and just left. Half of those dudes have to be scalpers  :(

Anyways, the biggest thing that bothers me is how much people are willing to pay for the upgrade... Please don't buy cards for over double MSRP... Cards that came out in September 2020.... Please tell me it's going to get back to normal before 2022 :-\

People that pay scalper prices are just as much to blame as the actual scalpers. **** both parties with a rusted flanged mace.

I tried to join a GB today. The shipping pricing was insane. I know that being out of Con-US weighs in, but it is hard to pay over $30 dollars for the shipping for some alphas that cost $20.
