2022.01.27 13:35 NanoOtter Am I a supervillain ?
For the past few years, there is a thought that I can’t get out of my head. Basically, I arrived to the conclusion that life is pointless and that nothing makes sense. We don’t exist for billions of years before we are born, then we are alive for a limited period of time to finally go back to an eternity of non-existence. Nothing we do, individually or as a civilization, matters in the end, because there is no goal. All that ever happened and will ever happen is just the result of the laws of physics and the initial conditions of the universe. I don’t even believe in free will, as everything we think or do is just the result of biochemical reactions in our brain, and the way the brain works is dictated by genetics and past experiences. To sum up, we have no control over lives that are meaningless anyway.
This could all be fine if we were not conscious. But with consciousness comes the ability to feel pain (be it physical, psychological or whatever). Indeed, it seems impossible for any conscious being (at least on this planet) to live without ever feeling pain. A pain that is fundamentally pointless. Sure, you could be the best human being ever and try to “make the world a better place”, cure cancer, solve the energy crisis, overthrow capitalism, get rid of poverty, … But what’s the point ? That would not give life a meaning, and there would still be pain as it is inherently linked to life.
So, the way I see it, when we are born we are basically sentenced to suffer for no reason. I don’t have the words to say how absurd this feels to me. It’s the first thing I think about when I wake up, and the last thing in my mind before I fall asleep.
The only escape I see to this nonsense would be to stop living. However, suicide does not seem like a satisfying solution, because it just transfers your pain to the people who know you, so the amount of pain in the universe doesn’t decrease. Furthermore, ending one life is irrelevant if others keep on perpetuating the cycle of life (or cycle of pain, if you’re in a gloomy mood). That’s why I came to the conclusion that the best way to end pain would be to end all life on earth (or in the universe) instantaneously, Thanos style. It would ensure a painless death to all, and no one would be left to grieve. All of this seems perfectly logic to me, and I believe that it would be the most humane thing to do if it were possible, but I can’t help but feel like this could be the exact words of a supervillain.
At first this state of mind was helpful because it reduced the weight of my regrets. Indeed, If nothing makes sense, then it doesn’t matter that I am unhappy, and I don’t have to blame myself for all the things that I did wrong, for all the experiences that I missed, for not making strong relationships with people that I like and finally being lonely. No big deal, none of that matters, I don’t have to be happy, and there is no reason to be sad. It was liberating in a way.
The drawback is that I gave up on hope and motivation. I believe that I will probably never be happy, and can’t make any effort to change my situation, because everything is meaningless. Now I feel like I am living my life in spectator mode, following the inertia and waiting for it to end. It’s not sad, it’s just is.
So, who would be ready to help me start a nuclear apocalypse ?

Just wondering if anyone knew the names of good cable clamp manufacturers for ceilings. Steel ceiling, so riveting or screws would work. Spesific product recommendations is welcome as well. Typical size cable is Ø13 give or take DC 400V cables if it matters for spacing.

2022.01.27 13:35 RichardCakeman The subjugation / emancipation of women in Christianity
This is another thorny issue. Throughout the Bible, it's repeatedly underlined that women are inferior to men, are not allowed to speak in the church, must obey their husbands in all things, are the weaker sex, are forbidden to teach or hold any sort of authority. It's mentioned far more often in the Scriptures than homosexuality. Whereas Christians seem preoccupied with homosexuality, they're far less vocal about the position of women in the church. For a liberal egalitarian like me, I love equality and emancipation, but would have expected it to be less popular in the churches, at least those that claim they hold to Biblical values. Compared to the vitriol aimed at homosexuals, there's hardly any comment about women ministers etc...unless it's from a really right wing nasty sort of place. You never get bakers refusing to make cakes for lady vicars!

2022.01.27 13:35 newcomet17 Any opinions on the growing Consumer and Retail Group (CRG) at Alvarez and Marsal?
The A&M Consumer Retail Group is signficantly growing and aggressively recruiting top candidates at the M7 MBA firms.
The base pay 175k (comparable to MBB firms) + 40% of bonus [taken from Managementconsulted.com] is also higher than other firms.
Looking at their new hires, seems like everyone came from MBB/Kearney/Top Consumer firms.
Does anyone know more about this group and their reputation across the industry?
A&M is definitely more of a restructuring and turnaround but CRG claims to run like a startup within A&M.

2022.01.27 13:35 onionconsumer69 why does my life keep getting worse
okay, so i had a breakdown lasting pretty much all of yesterday. just vomiting and panicking and hyperventilating for hours. this was because of stress, and dysphoria, and a myriad of other shit. i had a pre planned therapists appointment. im a trans girl. he specializes in helping boys. he knows i am trans, and doesnt accept me. my parents know im trans, and they sent me to him so i can... stop being dysphoric??? as you prob know, dysphoria does not go away. im stuck with it, and instead of supporting me, they just try to undo it and assert that im amab all the fucking time. so i cant tell my therapist that im dysphoric, cuz his best advice is "put it on the back burner", which is such shitty help. i dont know what to do anymore, anything nonconformative to my amab i do will get me punished more, and i just feel like my life will never be happy. ill have to cut off my family, even the ones i love. im trans, so ill never get a bf who actually loves me. its just hard to find a reason to keep living... thanks for reading.

2022.01.27 13:35 No_Difference_1735 Possible allergy...
I feel silly even asking this, but is it possible to develop allergy on dogs?? We adopted Beagle puppy almost 3 weeks ago, and I had no issues. But last two days I've been sneezing like crazy, and have very, very runny nose, itchy eyes and area around nose. I can not think of anything else as a cause as nothing else changed. We already have air purifier and vacuum cleaner with HEPA filters, and she is not allowed in my bedroom. Anything else I can do to ease symptoms, if it is indeed allergy? Thanks x

2022.01.27 13:35 A_Meis Relazione tra entità del patrimonio e strategia di investimento
Mi imbatto molto spesso, seguendo questo e altri subreddit internazionali a tema Personal Finance, in post in cui vengono chiesti consigli su come investire somme di denaro di diversa entità. Quando si tratta di somme medio/piccole, si leggono le classiche raccomandazioni di portafogli di ETF ben diversificati e bilanciati in base all’orizzonte temporale dell’investimento e alla tolleranza al rischio personale, mentre quando la questione viene posta in relazione a somme considerevoli, leggo puntualmente commenti riassumibili nella frase “Se avessi più di 100k/500k/1M+ non ascolterei i consigli di sconosciuti su Reddit e mi rivolgerei a un consulente”. Dal vostro punto di vista è corretto variare strategia di investimento al variare dell’ordine di grandezza del patrimonio (escludendo dal ragionamento le altre variabili)? In particolare mi chiedo, se applico ai miei 10/20/50k una strategia, evidentemente ritengo che sia la migliore possibile considerata la mia situazione personale; perché superata una certa soglia di patrimonio questo assunto dovrebbe cambiare? Esistono strumenti migliori ma non accessibili agli investitori medio/piccoli? Altrimenti perché ritenere valido un portafoglio per un investimento di 20k e mettere tutto in discussione quando si tratta di investire 50 volte tanto? Se morisse lo zio sconosciuto in America e vi piovesse addosso 1 milione (ripeto mantenendo costante tutte le altre variabili, tipo l’intenzione di investire tutto ciò che supera il fondo emergenza), rinneghereste tutto ciò che avete applicato fino a ora per rivolgervi a un consulente?

2022.01.27 13:35 Eccentric_Algorythm Jinbe's intro in wano
I love Jinbe as a character. His introduction in wano continues to move me to tears. I was wondering if the style of introduction he performed in wano (episode 980, chapter 976) has a name. It feels very cultural in the same vein as, like, a haiku. which is a poem with specific rules. It even appears as though he's standing in a specific way. Is there a set of 'rules' in asian cultures when introducing oneself? Maybe something relating to samurai manners? Is Jinbe following these rules, or is he like freeforming? If any of these thoughts ring any bells I'd love to learn more. Please share any resources that you may have. I'm uneducated on these things and looking to become a little more knowledgable. Thank you in advance! :)

2022.01.27 13:35 niksarsano Rifiutare o accettare un voto
Ciao a tutti, Volevo fare una domanda magari per alcuni un po' stupida ma per me che sono uno studente del primo anno non lo è.
Voi quando rifiutate un voto?
Ho svolto la prima parte dell'esame di storia delle relazioni internazionali (sono uno studente di scienze politiche) e ho preso 24, non sono soddisfatto del voto perché ritengo che con la preparazione che avevo avrei potuto fare molto di più. Sono però indeciso se rifiutarlo o accettarlo in quanto è solo la prova parziale dell'esame che è compreso nell'intero primo anno e, facendo media con la seconda parte, probabilmente anche rifare la prima parte per ottenere un voto più alto avrebbe veramente poca influenza nel voto totale dell'esame.
