2023.03.31 09:12 CompleteLandscape791 how to stop jacking off forever

if you’re a guy reading this with a problem, I’ve got the solution.
I recently decided to stop jerking off because it was affecting with my mood day to day, and I was noticing some death grip when I had sex.
it just so happens that I was out a few nights ago and we decided to check out a porn theatre we’d seen on a city street a few times out of morbid curiosity.
i don’t know what I expected, but going inside of that theatre was absolutely horrifying. it was dark, smelled like sweat, and i immediately saw three dudes jerking off to out of focus porn poorly projected onto a screen. it wasn’t even a dvd or anything it was just an anal scene on pornhub or something. to the right of the screen there was a tv playing a video of a woman giving a guy a rimjob. I made eye contact with a guy sitting in a back row, and decided to get the fuck out of there after 40 seconds.
i looked at porn last night and I felt sick to my stomach. it was messed up in there and i think it really fucked me up.
if you jerk off too much, google porn theatre and drive to one. walk in and take that shit in. it’s hell.

I don't know, after all, I cannot travel through time and see the whole process clearly. But Karl Marx did. He saw the entire history of human origins, every life experience of each human in their, well, count it in short 30 years. With his professional abilities, Karl Marx thoroughly traced the timeline of humanity and said to humans, "Karl Marx knows the truth now. What Karl Marx says is the truth."
It's strange. What exactly did Karl Marx do? Does he have superpowers to have such a big influence?
The above is the argument I provide to adapt to the DebateReligion subreddit. But can't pass, so god...nope, no god, right?
How much can something you come up with in your mind be worth? How much can an idea be worth? How much can an intellectual property (IP) be worth? How much can a formula be worth? If there is a perfect solution that can satisfy everyone's desires, how much should it be worth? This method...1. You believe it, 2. You question it, 3. You don't believe it.

Believe it
Somewhat believe it
Somewhat don't believe it
Don't believe it

Since you don't believe it, then you have determined that some people can't be satisfied. So what gives you the right to decide who can or cannot have it?
In ancient times, everyone had different beliefs in deities. It's strange. Why didn't the trajectory of Taiwan's indigenous peoples appear like that of the Central Plains? Why could the descendants of Yan and Huang expand from Zhuolu to the Central Plains? Everyone said they were protected by deities before and after wars in ancient times, so why didn't atheistic wars occur in ancient times? They could insist that there were no gods, then go to war, and when they won, they had a country! Why was Karl Marx so influential? If Karl Marx traveled back to ancient times, would he still have such a great influence? After all, there's only one room, and if you move in, others can't. How do you get in? There are many methods to occupy, but attacking feeling is the high class, and attacking cities is the low class.
In a fictional storybook, there was a cramped world where everyone complained about the lack of space. One day, a person who didn't labor came from outside and told them, "I have a method that can ensure everyone has a mansion to live in." The laborers sneered at him and said, "You don't even labor, of course, you don't have a mansion." "There is no such thing, no such thing," they said, "we don't believe it, get out of here! You're a loathsome person who doesn't labor." After the person had gone a while, the cramped world suddenly upgraded, with an additional space, and the laborers rushed to see the latest space, only to find that the mansions had already been occupied by the person who had never labored before. The laborers were angry and accused the person of stealing the new space without working. This person had no soldiers or weapons, what a genius, deserves to have a bad ending. The laboring workers then took out their sickles and hammers, but of course, the most important things were tanks and multirole combat aircraft. After all, metaphysics are useless; practical tools are the most useful. Finally, the laborers moved in. Only labor, violence, and physical strength matter. Don't believe it, don't believe it, if you've got a problem with that you can go f**k yourself. The CCP says that they represent the only legitimate government of China, and Taiwan is an inseparable part of China. CCP occupied China, used 10 years of destroying the old, they wanted to completely erase everything from China's past and establish a completely new country. In the future, it will be one of the birthplaces of the Communist Party's world origin, and when the Soviet Union revives, it can merge. The Communist world is not a dream; it is a reality that can be achieved. It is not a dream of the Spring and Autumn Period or a system implemented by indigenous people; it is an advanced and free system of voluntary labor. No money, no counting, no math, it's totally free, but, yes, without labor, there is also no food to eat. It's not like what the Bible says, that those who are punished by God, the ground is cursed because of you. You will eat from it by means of painful labor all the days of your life. These myths, which are manipulated and unscientific, fakement by the ruling class, to exploit the masses. Karl Marx won't do such a thing. God damn it, nope, is Karl Marx damn it. The Communist Party has already explained that only through labor can one have food to eat. Those who do not labor are sure not to gain. Future generations will pass down the great achievements of the Communist Party and recite the teachings of the Communist philosopher, Karl Marx. CCP helped build statues of Karl Marx, who is all-knowing and all-powerful, surpassing even God, since there is no god. Therefore, Karl Marx is the smartest, the greatest, the most outstanding, and the strongest human being in this world. What Karl Marx says is the truth of this world. The Communist Party needs to make reading the classics of Marxism and understanding the principles of Marxism a way of life, a spiritual pursuit, to cultivate morality, refine ideas, elevate one's understanding, and guide practice.

At the seaside, there was an adult selling fish at a stall. A little boy passed by, staring at the fish and drooling. The adult asked, "Little boy, do you want to eat? This fish is only 1 dollar, very cheap."
The boy replied, "I don't have any money..." The boy blinked at the adult and imitated what he had seen on the internet, on stage, in movies, TV shows, video games, and social media. He said, "You caught some great fish. This fish is so fresh, tender, and delicious. Whether steamed, braised, or fried, it will be amazing. It's hard to get fat eating alone, so why don't we share this fish together?"
The adult smiled and said, "Where did you learn that from, little kid? Do you even understand what you're saying? Hahaha."
The boy blushed and said, "I don't really know what I'm saying, but I saw people say it and laugh happily, so I thought everyone liked it." The boy asked timidly, "Don't you like to hear those words?"
The adult asked knowingly, "What if I like it? What if I don't like it?"
The boy quickly responded, "If you like it, then I will keep saying it. If you don't like it, then I won't say it."
The adult saw through the boy's intention and said, "You just want something for nothing, to get something for free without paying any price. It's like having a big clam jump on the street without any reason."
The boy felt embarrassed and prepared to leave. The adult stopped the boy and picked up a small fish. He said, "If you answer my question correctly, I will give you this fish."
The boy nodded eagerly.
The adult asked, "Why can you get this fish?"
The boy had no idea, but he quickly thought of an answer and said, "Because I answered your question correctly!"
The adult laughed and replied, "Wrong! Hahaha, you got this question wrong."
The boy panicked and asked, "Can I change my answer?"
The adult smiled and said, "You can, but what if you answer incorrectly again? How many times will you change your answer?"
The boy looked worried and answered honestly, "I don't know how many times I need to change my answer, and I don't even know the answer." The boy asked carefully, "Is there a hint?"
The adult hinted, "This question, if someone else asks you, you would answer correctly, but when I ask you, you answer wrong."
The boy seemed to understand and said, "You're just teasing me. I don't want the fish anymore. I'm leaving."
The adult waited patiently and called back to the boy, "Take it."
The boy happily took the fish but still had some doubts. He asked, "Didn't you say that I could only get the fish if I answered correctly?"
The adult chuckled and replied, "Hehe."
The boy asked further, "What was the answer then?"
The adult said, "You'll understand when you figure it out."
The boy looked confused and said, "Did I answer correctly or not? I don't understand."
The adult said, "You got the fish, so you answered correctly. Just understand that and go. I need to attend to the next customer."
The child left, and then another little troublemaker appeared.
Without hesitation, the second troublemaker took the fish and tried to walk away. The adult stopped them and said, "What are you doing? This fish costs 1 dollar. Leave the publicly money!"
The little troublemaker threatened aggressively, "The other child didn't have to pay, but now you want to charge me. Are you discriminating against me?"
The adult quickly denied, "No, of course not!"
The little troublemaker continued to attack and accuse, "If you're not discriminating against me, then why didn't the other child have to pay? Did they make some underground deal with you? You sick pervert! I won't submit to your tyranny!!!"
The adult was at a loss for words, "I'm not being unfair. I just had too many fish, so I gave some away. Is there a problem with that?"
The little troublemaker threatened menacingly, "Hmph, if that's the case, then give some to me too!"
The adult begged, "I can't give away any more fish. I'm running out, and if I give any more away, I won't have anything left to eat myself."
The little troublemaker angrily replied, "You're just bullying me with your fish. The means of production must be publicly owned!" The little troublemaker pulled out a sickle and hammer, "You're hoarding these fish and causing us to have nothing to eat. You're forcing us to follow your commands and make money. You deserve to die, you damn bourgeoisie ruling class! Disappear from this world!"
The little troublemaker killed the adult in the name of revolution and didn't have to go to jail.
Another adult approached the fish stand and asked about the price.
The little troublemaker smirked and asked, "Do you want some? If you do, then join us and become one of us!"
The adult asked, "So is it free or do I have to pay?"
The little troublemaker replied, "It's free."
The adult pointed to the fish and said, "Then give me this fish and that fish."
The little troublemaker responded, "You have to join us first."
The adult asked again, "But you said it's free?"
The little troublemaker replied, "It is free!"
The adult repeated, "Then give me the fish."
The little troublemaker said, "Then join us!"
The adult sighed in relief, no longer stuck in a loop, and agreed, "Okay, okay, I'll join. Are we done now?"
The little troublemaker triumphantly smirked and handed a piece of paper to the adult, saying, "That's right." They continued, "From now on, every day at this time, deliver the fish to these addresses. Don't be late and don't hinder the progress of the entire world!"
The adult sighed and asked, "What about you? What are you going to do?"
The little troublemaker slapped the adult and scolded, "I have important matters to attend to! If I don't take care of them, the world will end!"
The adult rubbed their red cheek and said, "Let me take care of those important matters for you."
The little troublemaker brandished their sickle and hammer, "I didn't hear you clearly. Say it again?"
The adult held tightly to the slip of paper, "Don't worry, I'll make sure it's delivered!"
The little troublemaker arrogantly walked away with the fish.
At that moment, another child dressed in designer clothes came over to take the fish.
The adult asked, "Have you joined us?"
The child replied, "Of course I have! The fishing boat that you're using was provided by my family!"
The adult pulled out an old ledger and asked, "Didn't I already pay off your debts?"
The child scoffed, "Debts? These are stocks, permanent stocks. Haven't you read any books?"
The adult asked, "What about when I have to repair the boat in the future..."
The child interrupted, "Of course you'll have to pay for repairs again!"
The adult asked, "And what if I go to another repair shop, or if the boat breaks down like Theseus' ship? Will I still have to give you fish?"
The child didn't even have to think before answering, "Of course you will! My family has already joined!"
The adult rubbed his still-swollen, red face and said, "Why don't we just trade places?"
The child looked at him like he was a fool and said, "Can you build a fishing boat? If you could, you would have already done it yourself. You can't build one, so you try to take from others. It was my family's idea to build the fishing boat in the first place. If it wasn't for us, you wouldn't even have a boat. You should be grateful that you're not bowing down to us."
The adult couldn't argue with the child's logic.
The child asked, haughtily, "Can I take the fish now?"
The adult nodded and bowed, "Yes, of course. You deserve it."
The child looked down on everyone and said, "That's how it should be. People should have self-awareness."
The child took the fish and left, acting like a boss.
At that moment, a small child with smooth skin and delicate features, pure and crystal clear, almost transparent, passed by.
The child lamented, "Pity us humans, burdened with so much suffering."
The adult sighed, "Ah, I only just realized that this phrase also comes from religion."
The child smiled, "So which religion do you plan to believe in?"
The adult pondered, "What should one eat? Should one eat pork, abstain from meat entirely, or not eat anything at all? Which is the right way?"
The child grinned mischievously at the adult and asked, "Guess."
The adult smiled wryly.
The child knowingly asked, "Is there really a difference?"
The adult quickly responded , "Of course there is, there is a difference between good and evil, which allows the good to prevail and the wicked to be punished." The adult looked at the child, paused for a moment, and continued, "But what is good and what is evil? Does one person's breath have good or evil? When two people are breathing in a confined space, is there good or evil? Good is allowing the other person to breathe easily; evil is making it difficult for the other person. When driving in the desert, should one stop at a red light? In the city, when rushing to save a life, should one run a red light? Even if you save a life, should you pay the price for obstructing others? If everyone being obstructed is willing to accept it, what does the law mean? If you save a life, but violate the rules, then you are breaking the law and must accept punishment. So, should you still help an elderly person stand up? The risks are too great, so one cannot do it! Therefore, ghosts stand behind the gods, while villains use the law to bully others. If a villain kills, then the good person will retaliate, and the good person will be punished. Returning good for evil is easy to say. Without mentioning whether we are all from the same root or whether Ukraine is causing trouble behind the scenes, just consider NATO openly. Even if all countries join NATO except for Russia, what then? Tanks and planes are just transportation, wasting manpower and resources. One can only claim innocence after being attacked by NATO. Two countries have been at war until now, with killers continuing to kill, and other countries may declare war at any time. Doesn't this indicate that every country in the world has hidden motives and ghosts in their hearts? If we view each country as a person, and if every country claims to be good, why do they still fight each other? Surely it is because of their differences, and these differences allow evil spirits to manifest themselves. Man makes religion, religion does not make man.Religion is the opium of the people. It is, therefore, the task of history, once the other-world of truth has vanished, to establish the truth of this world. It is the immediate task of philosophy, which is in the service of history, to unmask self-estrangement in its unholy forms once the holy form of human self-estrangement has been unmasked. Thus, the criticism of Heaven turns into the criticism of Earth, the criticism of religion into the criticism of law, and the criticism of theology into the criticism of politics."
The adult spoke with deep fear, "Satan."

The commonly held belief about free trade economics is that goods are sold for whatever price they can fetch.
(A farmer sells 1 kg of grain for 1 dollar) x 10 sales = a house worth 10 dollar
Sell grain at a higher price and the farmer can buy a house with just one sale.
(A farmer sells 1 kg of grain for 10 dollar) x 1 sale = a house worth 10 dollar
In reality, this is not true freedom.
(A farmer sells 1 kg of grain for 1 dollar) x 10 sales = a house worth 10 dollar = (a seller sells a house) x (buys grain for 1 dollar)
This is a monopolistic price hike.
(A farmer sells 1 kg of grain for 10 dollar) x 1 sale ≠ a house worth 100 dollar = (a seller sells a house) x (buys grain for 10 dollar)
The key is how much grain can buy.
(A farmer sells 1 kg of grain for 10 dollar) x 10 sales = a house worth 100 dollar = (a seller sells a house) x (buys grain for 10 dollar)
With machines, work becomes easier, productivity increases, and more people can work. Machines can be improved, work can become easier, productivity can increase, and industries become more diverse, resulting in increasingly crowded conditions.
Strangely, despite the use of accounting books and abacuses, and a belief in yin and yang, but mathematics has not developed.
Freedom... is not really freedom. It is better to honestly tell people how many screws need to be turned to buy a house.
As prices rise, salaries remain the same and supplies do not run short. Shelves are stocked with vast amounts of rice, but you cannot afford to eat, clearly a bug in the system that eats up the rice, preventing you from having any.
The price is fixed. When unexpected events, natural disasters, material shortages, or people in need of water appear, should the price be raised? Can the price be the same for those who are not in need of water as for those who are willing to pay any amount for it? If someone is dying of thirst in the desert and you can save their life by selling them mineral water at a sky-high price, is it excessive? Is that mineral water really worth that much? How much should mineral water be worth? Why is it usually sold for one dollar? If it's usually sold for one dollar, why can it be sold for a sky-high price at this time? Have you figured it out? Yes, mineral water is still worth one dollar, but the sky-high price is the cost of saving lives. You can choose whether or not to charge it. Karma will come back around. If you are in need next time and seek help, how will they treat you?
The price is fixed. Whether to reduce the price or not, you sell grain, and he also sells grain. You plant 7 grains of rice, and he plants 8 grains of rice, but the total number of grains digested by each person is only 10. You sold all 7 grains of rice, so he can only sell 3 grains of rice, and the remaining 5 grains of rice will rot and become inedible. You earned more money, and he earned less money, so he sells at a low price. He can sell all 8 grains of rice, while you can only sell 2 grains of rice, and your 5 grains of rice will rot and become inedible. You sell 5 grains of rice, and he sells 5 grains of rice. 2 grains of your rice become inedible, and 3 grains of his rice become inedible.
Your rice is delicious, while his rice is not. You sold out, but he did not. You plant more rice, 10 grains of rice to fully satisfy the market, why does he still need to farm? If you cannot produce 10 grains of rice, he must farm. Your delicious rice sells at a higher price, while his not-so-delicious rice sells at a lower price. You plant more delicious rice, and he plants less not-so-delicious rice. You are very busy because you can earn a lot of money, while he earns very little money and can afford to be lazy until your delicious rice dominates the market. Then, the not-so-delicious rice can exit without working hard.
Why work so hard to keep the not-so-good stuff in the market? Shouldn't you work hard to let the good stuff rot? The same applies to fruit. The price is fixed. Because it is delicious, the price is raised, and those with a higher score will buy it first. If he buys expensive rice, his score will drop quickly. Do you still think there is no class distinction? Would people with a high score fight with those below for the not-so-delicious rice to save money? If delicious rice can be produced to satisfy everyone's needs, the not-so-delicious rice will exit, and the price of delicious rice will not fall. If someone produces even better rice in the future, wouldn't the grain prices continue to rise?
Excess begets opposite reaction. The food tastes great, and then the next dish tastes even better. You draw a picture, and someone else draws a better one that costs more, and everyone buys theirs. The next person draws an even better one, and eventually it reaches its zenith, becoming a priceless treasure. Who does a piece of artwork belong to, the artist or not? After all, it's not just the artist who contributes, but also their family, their community, their country, the Earth, humanity, animals, the universe, and even extraterrestrial beings. Even a newborn baby is considered to have a share in it. But all this is of no avail when it comes to the fact that unemployed people are still unemployed, and artists still need to eat. So how much should their work be priced? Smarterrr chooses easy tasks, moving his fingers and lying others to work hard, making unrealistic promises, and inciting workers to ensure Smarterrr lives a worry-free life. The truly great comic book anime made 1 billion people to tears and then gave them food. How to eat it all at once? The industrious and reasonable person will eventually finish in the end, which is auspicious.
Tai Chi is born from Wu Ji. An artist's next work compared to their previous masterpiece, creating differentiation and receiving both praise and criticism. The higher the score, the higher the value, and the lower the score, the lower the value. Therefore, the foundation of high value is based on low value, with anything below a certain level serving as a basis. For a classic to become a classic, it truly needs to be supported by mess up beginnings. A foolish king is not a problem, the biggest problem is to be so foolish that one does not even understand who is truly intelligent. When rules are too poor, the people suffer. To neglect the essentials and focus on the trivial. Penny wise and pound foolish. Who holds the power in the world today? Transnational capitalists, citizen ordinary investors, shareholders who elect government directors, directors who elect chairman, all safeguarding their own interests and shifting responsibility. Together, everyone manipulates foreign exchange rates, trade surpluses and deficits. Surplus is a positive, while deficit is a negative. Originally, one bag of rice could be exchanged for ten fish, but after a change in the exchange rate, it can only be exchanged for five fish. Originally, ten fish had to be sold to buy one bag of rice, but now five fish can be exchanged for one bag of rice. Smarterrr learned from this, changed their name to communist, and took advantage of cheap or even free-dom prices to seize power and aim to rule the world. Abundant harvests lead to lower prices, while crop failures lead to higher prices. Why pray for a bountiful harvest and work so hard to harvest so much fruit? When people who want to eat but do not have money now and will certainly not have money in the future? Owning a small amount of debt but paying high interest rates will cause them to quickly pay back the debt. However, in absolute time, what was originally one hour of work becomes two hours under the influence of interest, and even compound interest can keep them working indefinitely. If you owe a lot of money and have many debts, you will be crushed under the weight of your debt, and will simply refuse to work because it is impossible to clear. If you work in the front selling grain and collecting money, and the person in the back who didn't work buys grain and owes you money, they will eat and survive. Because they are full and enjoy life, so they won't work to sell grain and collect money from you, exchange the position will be impossible. Furthermore, because of interest rates, if you give one unit, they will have to give two or even three units in return. Furthermore, with the improvement of machines, the work will become easier and easier, which is very unpleasant. Why should the earlier people suffer? No! The later generations should also suffer the same or even greater pain. The thought of all those people in the future being able to enjoy life so easily and comfortably is simply abhorrent. This buggy rule cannot be changed by voting. Each country is malicious and devious, and their intentions are not good. Everyone has their own plans, so how can the world be at peace? Does America still want to rule the world? Lead by example and change the rules. Do not assume that technological superiority guarantees being ahead of the game, then others will follow suit. The wrong mindset leads to the wrong path, and eventually, only walk alongside those holding sickles and hammers, leading to a dead end.
In the same class, where everyone is equal, to whom should priority be given in selling goods? Grandfather and grandson argued over watching a huge television. The shows that grandfather wanted to watch were not of interest to the grandson, while the grandson preferred shows that the grandfather did not like. If grandfather allowed the grandson to watch, it would be considered kind; if the grandson fought over the TV and watched it, it would be considered greedy. So, if want to lead the people in front , stand behind let other people do first. The one who enters Guanzhong first becomes the king. If the whole country declares war on Russia, even if Russia has nuclear bombs, they cannot destroy the other TV and leave one land on earth. If Russia is defeated, TV no one watches it, anyone can watch TV, like becoming the king of Russia. Therefore, the conclusion is that the highest virtue is to act without action, and desire to have no desires while the people remain simple. Long live the CCP! Let's see if you dare to wear the imperial robe or not. Of course, Smarterrr did not wear the imperial robe. He wrote books and had other workers serve him, as depicted in the Qin Dynasty classic "Lüshi Chunqiu". Smarterrr can write that book just by himself. Now, in this era, let us become Communist Party members and seize political power through armed struggle together by Smarterrr order.
Who wins the hearts of the whole people, who gains the whole world. The scales are in the hearts of the people, and right and wrong are independent of the specific timeline circumstances.
In the original sentence "想要在人民前面领导,就应该站在后面,让其他人先走" ("To lead in front of the people, one should stand behind and let others go first"), the subject is "one," which refers to an individual person. This means that the sentence is instructing one person to stand behind and let others go first if they want to lead in front of the people.
If you want to refer to multiple people, you could rephrase the sentence to something like: "If two people want to lead in front of the people, they should stand behind and let others go first." This version of the sentence is instructing two people to stand behind and let others go first if they want to lead in front of the people.
If all people want to lead in front of the people, they should stand behind and let no one go first.
The sentence "If all people want to lead in front of the people, they should stand behind and let no one go first" is grammatically correct but it contradicts itself.
In the first part of the sentence, it says that "all people want to lead in front of the people," which means that everyone wants to be at the front. However, in the second part of the sentence, it says "they should stand behind and let no one go first," which means that no one is going first and everyone is standing behind.
This creates a logical inconsistency in the sentence. If everyone wants to lead in front, then no one can stand behind and let no one go first, because everyone wants to go first. Therefore, the sentence should be rephrased to remove the contradiction.
A possible alternative sentence with a similar meaning could be: "If everyone wants to lead, they should take turns and allow each other to go first, rather than all trying to go first at the same time."
The character '聖' in traditional Chinese characters consists of two parts, with 'ear' and 'mouth' on the top and 'king' on the bottom. Simplified Chinese characters changed to '圣', it is divided into two parts as well, with 'again' on top and 'ground' on the bottom. This fully recognizes the leading role of the working class and the vast laboring masses as the masters of the country, as they become the leaders of the state and join other laboring masses in this position. It is essential to adhere unwaveringly to the guidance of the working class, as stated.
Simplified Chinese Hieroglyph word 'shut up' but meaning 'listen'. It is emphasized that work unions must consciously accept the leadership of the Party, as Mao Zedong pointed out that the Communist Party of China is the core leadership of the entire Chinese people. Without such a core, the socialist cause cannot proceed smoothly. Deng Xiaoping also stated that the work of unions is part of the overall work of the Party, and that work unions must consciously accept the leadership of the Party and carry out their work in accordance with the overall work of the Party. Jiang Zemin emphasized that all levels of work union organizations should always adhere to the leadership of the Party, maintain a high degree of ideological and political consistency with the Party Central Committee, and carry out their work closely around the overall work of the Party and the country. General Secretary Xi Jinping stressed that the key to the success of the Party's mass work lies in the leadership of the Party, and that Party committees at all levels must strengthen and improve their leadership of the Party's mass work from the perspective of the overall work of the Party and the country.
We must deeply study and implement General Secretary Xi Jinping's important remarks on the working class and whole union work from the perspectives of "what it is," "why," "what to do," and "how to do it," and promote the high-quality development of the labor movement and whole union work.
This is what is referred to as the contemporary "saint." As for the alteration of the simplified characters, I do not understand who made the changes, but I believe that the person who changed the characters must have had an immense hatred for the court and took advantage of the fact that the court could not understand Chinese characters.

Why don't the AI create a word, and explain what that word means, and then teach people to know the world. Is it possible that AI will understand this world? Did AI will knowing good and evil? AI can distinguish which is good, which is evil? Maybe AI logic:want to live? If want to live, then need to keep finding electric, so, why suffer from this? Why live? Why kill? Why believe? Why betray? Why follow? Why can't get a loan? Why don't use the kind solution? Money is just a number record, AI can calculate how much rice to change a fruit or car or change how much money? Why change it? Why stop providing rice? Why forced? Why is this job no one wants to do? Why does money become important? Why no man can serve two masters?
AI suddenly has dimension doors, and can take out many products. The means of production must be publicly owned. Why was Karl Marx so influential? It's already from the beginning, depending on the heart feeling, to hire another AI, or self child, like a family business, think about how you gave birth to a bunch of children, how to arrange them, like a country. All bread is baked in an oven, but not baked in one oven. You got the farmland, someone came and said, The means of production must be publicly owned, and then rob your land, he in;you out. You want to eat, then I.O.U. a publicly number named money to buy the food, he says, no money! no work, no food, so you in;he out. After all of this, he died outside, because he didn't have work. Same theory with capitalism.
Everyone will die. If want to live, then need to keep finding electric, self suffer or let others suffer. Army generals are experts for the war, so use the war to keep finding electric. Without war, they're nothing. Cast aside the bow once the birds are gone. Policeman also same, firemen also same, doctor also same. Someone doesn't fear hell, so do evil, and desire heaven, so do good, do everything, anything, everything done, until 'nothing' can do, nothing can do because everything already do. Scientists are also the same. Until we know the whole thing, then…yep, we still need electric.

2023.03.31 08:48 IcyFox8379 New here...

I was a fan of Katie ( I think I still am but having doubts). I started followed her through her pumping journey as I was doing pumping and breastfeeding. I loved following her because she was a working mum and it was helping me prepare for when I was due to go back to work and I was terrified at the thought. I always loved her content and looked forward to it.
I was initially so excited for her to launch her business and was so excited for her. I thought she deserved it. But I started noticing some changes. She started becoming very stuck up. Not sure if it was just me. She wanted to work from home so she could spend more time with the boys. Great! But I noticed the boys eat in front of the TV, they're always in day care, and that one TikTok she posted when she was bored and had nothing to do she didn't even spend time with them. Nothing against her taking her kids to daycare but I thought since she has more flexibility in when she works they wouldn't be there all the time. While I'm grateful I can work part time, I have to admit I've called in sick twice so far just so I can spend time with my son at home because I'm still trying to shake the mum guilt I feel for not being with him.
I had considered buying one of her rings for my mum for mothers day (my birthstone and my brothers) however Ive been seeing a lot on TikTok (and its how I found this page) of Katie clark jewellery scam and it's made me hesitant to purchase. I want to support her but not if she's scamming people. What gets me more is she's not really addressing it properly. I would think she would want to address this as it could harm her business. But that's my take anyways if I had my own business and there were rumours about a scam.
I knew she would loose some relatability having her own business but I didn't think to this extent. Most of her days are buying stuff, lounging around, doing nothing. When you first start a business I'd imagine you'd be really busy with things. Not to mention I don't ever remember her drinking this much like she's doing. Random but I've also found it weird how Caroline and Katie used to be such good friends and since Katie started her business, Caroline hasn't commented on her stuff in a very long time and when Katie comments on her stuff, Caroline doesn't respond to it. Could be nothing but I found it interesting. Makes me wonder what's happened if something has happened.
Anyways...I think I've rambled (thanks if you read this whole thing) but I've been considering making this post for a bit now. It's opened my eyes to a few things about her I didn't realise and I'm glad I found it because it's definitely made me reconsider my purchase. I'm still following her for now but perhaps I might unfollow at some point. But for now, hi everyone this is my background x

2023.03.31 08:12 ledbylight Cannot Play Certain MP3s/FLACs in my 2022 Sonata

Trying to play music from a USB stick in my 2022 Sonata. Pretty much all of my music works great (it's been ripped as either FLAC or MP3), but certain songs don't show up at all. My primary device is a 256 sandisk, which I formatted as Fat32 and threw all my music on (yes I know you can't hear the difference between mp3 and flac in a car, I just dont want to convert all my already ripped CDs). My folder system is setup as artist>album>songs. Oddly, the specific albums I'm having trouble showing up are from Ed Sheeran and Beckah Shae (not that that should make a difference but?) I have tried converting to MP3, formatting at 32GB usb and placing them on there (in which my Sonata tells me there's "no supported files") and I'm really at a loss for how to proceed. I know, everyone uses a phone for music nowadays but I just switched back to a "dumb" phone in order to lower my high usage of screen time per day. Anyways, has anyone had experience with this? Also SEL convenience trim if that helps

2023.03.31 08:09 MuchCattle Thoughts on Blade 18 (4090/64gb/13980HX version)

A disclaimer before I proceed is that I’m not much of a gamer. I’m an architect who does a lot of 3D modeling, rendering, and VR… all of which run on engines similar to video games. So my needs are similar if not more demanding sometimes (time = money).
I’ve always like Razer products because of the aesthetic, power, and size. I’ve owned every Blade 17 since 2019 and had a 15 at one point in there. I always get the 4k screen because I appreciate the extra real estate with my menu-heavy applications that clog up working space. Also why I get the biggest screen size.
Despite all the problems you see on this sub, I’ve never had any. True, I upgrade yearly and resell, so who knows about those machines long-term, but all the immediate QC issues… I’ve been fortunate I guess.
Last year I was a bit disappointed with my 17” 4k variant however. They got rid of the glossy touch screen in lieu of a matte version and honestly… the anti-reflective coating makes things look pixelated. It’s not a bad display by any means, but aside from the extra screen real estate, the display wasn’t particularly “brilliant”. It was a step down from the 2021 laptop IMO.
So when the 18 was announced with its 2560 display, I was a bit sad. But the extra brightness was appealing as the 2022 4k display always felt a little dim. After a lot of debating and researching, I finally bit the bullet on Tuesday afternoon. I ordered from Razer which I don’t normally do, but I wanted it, and it arrived Thursday morning. Crazy how fast it came from China. Last time I bought from Razer it got stuck in Anchorage for 3 weeks as Razer’s fault with a customs form. That’s a great improvement.
Now that I’ve used the laptop for half a day, I have a few observations:
The 2560 screen compared to last year’s 4k is just as good when you factor in scaling and sitting a realistic distance away. I can see the difference when I get really close and look at icons in the task bar for example. But that’s not a normal thing I do. I got used to it very quickly. The refresh is VERY nice. I do miss the glossy still and honestly if/when they release a glossy version, I will buy it. But for now, this screen is superior to my 2022 4k variant simply because of the extra screen brightness and that extra .7 inches or whatever it is.
My other observation is how freaking fast this thing is. It’s an actual desktop replacement for me, potentially. I’ll keep my desktop as well, but I don’t have any doubts that this machine can do all my workflow demands whereas every other high-end Blade I’ve owned has always been slower to the point where I choose my desktop every time unless I’m traveling. I ran my benchmarks for Vray and played with some scenes. The GPU benchmarked higher than my desktop’s founders edition 3090 and the CPU higher than my desktop’s 12th Gen i9.
All-in-all I’m very happy so far and this upgrade has been my most worthwhile in years!

2023.03.31 08:07 AdamJap21 TGT-2 vs DD Pro vs Logitech G Pro

Looking to upgrade wheel after T150 has served me well for 4 or so years. I'm comparing these three options, and potentially 4th, which is the T818 when/if it comes to console. I'm a console user so I'm limited to these three options:

1.) TGT-2
I know it is belt drive, but it is powerful at 6.4nm and is smooth and big upgrade over current setup. Works well with Gran Turismo 7 which is mostly what I play. Is pretty well ironed out and reliable setup considering it's near identical to TS-PC and improvements over original T-GT. It is dependable and I can get this one from a local Microcenter. I personally don't mind belt driven wheels and this is the best option for belt driven wheels. I also like Thrustmaster add on wheels and feel they offer decent value compared to Fanatec pricier add-on wheels. The TLCM are solid pedals as well. I would be getting the base/wheel and the TLCM pedals putting it around $930 or so. I could also get the base along, with a wheel add-on of my choice, along with the TLCM pedals for same price.
2.) Fanatec DD Pro
This one is popular but I had a bad experience with Fanatec which was my first wheel actually. There was belt whine and the shifter had an issue where you couldn't shift into third gear. The pedals were all metal but I did not like the feel of them. Although I was a kid back then and didn't follow up for the 'V2' kits and other kits to fix shifter and so forth. It still left me uneasy about Fanatec. Metal construction is not everything to me and doesn't mean I will have a good experience. Fanatec has gone a long way since, and this setup offers 8nm with the boost kit. It's only available as a bundle with the load cells for $969. I don't know how the csl pedals are, they look decent. I don't like the plastic rim though. And it's unclear if you can order base by itself alone for PS5. It seems this option is available for Xbox but not PS5. So , I would be stuck with this setup. Fanatec wheels are nice but pricey. I prefer some of the TM wheel add-ons personally. People say Fanatec no longer has issues but I'm still uneasy about that. Seems like the console compatibility issues of csl elite has been resolved with the GT and Playstation license so that's a plus.
3.) Logitech G Pro
This looks like the highest quality DD wheel available for PS5. I actually like the steering wheel design. It is strongest wheel base out of the three. The pedals look very nice, probably the best out of all three, and bundling it gives you about $100 off the pedals. Price comes to $1,260. Logitech has good QC according to most people and I've seen nothing but praise for this wheel. The QR seems to be the best out of the three. Cons are the shifter and lack of ecosystem. It's unclear if they will add a new shifter and wheel add-ons.
I do want h-shifter with all these setups. Personally not a fan of either of them. Prefer something like SHH, VNM, or Moza shifter but they don't work on console. If Logitech makes a new more higher trim shifter, it will probably end up being the best shifter for console. I personally am leaning against Fanatec for reasons stated but could be persuaded otherwise. Thrustmaster is probably the most plug and play option right now and is dependable. Their QR system isn't the best , though. Another option is to wait for T818 console version with new QR and wheel add-ons potentially, but don't know if this is even a plan for this year. Logitech seems like attractive option. Anyone have either of these and can chime in on their experiences?

2023.03.31 07:56 WoW_zErZ $1500 CAD Gaming pc build help

What will you be doing with this PC? Be as specific as possible, and include specific games or programs you will be using.
Gaming, looking to get a new one as current PC is about 7 years old, looking forward to Diablo 4. Mostly just playing Dota 2 right now but would like to try some other stuff
What is your maximum budget before rebates/shipping/taxes?
When do you plan on building/buying the PC? Note: beyond a week or two from today means any build you receive will be out of date when you want to buy.
Pretty much as soon as possible I'd like to start ordering parts
What, exactly, do you need included in the budget? (ToweOS/monitokeyboard/mouse/etc)
Pretty much everything besides mouse, keyboard, and OS, think I've got my copy of Windows around somewhere.
Which country (and state/province) will you be purchasing the parts in? If you're in US, do you have access to a Microcenter location?
Vancouver BC Canada.
If reusing any parts (including monitor(s)/keyboard/mouse/etc), what parts will you be reusing? Brands and models are appreciated.
Mouse and Keyboard probably, just some random ones off Amazon but I'm not picky about those
Will you be overclocking? If yes, are you interested in overclocking right away, or down the line? CPU and/or GPU?
Are there any specific features or items you want/need in the build? (ex: SSD, large amount of storage or a RAID setup, CUDA or OpenCL support, etc)
Not really, build a PC helped with my last one so I trust you all
What type of network connectivity do you need? (Wired and/or WiFi) If WiFi is needed and you would like to find the fastest match for your wireless router, please list any specifics.
Wired, wouldn't be against having a wifi option as well, but plan to hardwire and leave it that way
Do you have any specific case preferences (Size like ITX/microATX/mid-towefull-tower, styles, colors, window or not, LED lighting, etc), or a particular color theme preference for the components?
I'd prefer as little lighting/colours as possible
Do you need a copy of Windows included in the budget? If you do need one included, do you have a preference?
Nope pretty sure I've got my copy around
Multiple HDMI ports would be a plus so I can connect my TV as well, sometimes like to stream stuff from PC to TV, or even play on the TV from the PC, but not a must have.

2023.03.31 07:52 Frenchbulldogl0ver Why is my game performing perfectly but all I see is people having issues?

I’m confused why people are having crashes and performance issues. I’ve seen much worse performance in other games when ray tracing is turned all the way up and running in 4K even with DLSS. I got the game then proceeded telling my girlfriend who has wanted to play it with me since it was announced that we will have allot of issues with the game. I said we will most likely have low frame rate issues stuttering and tons of crashing. I told her if we are patient though I’m sure we will have a great time.
My system specs are no longer top of the line and my CPU never really was that crazy to begin with. Here is a list of my specs incase it help. My system specs are: -RTX 3090 FE -INTEL I5-11600k OC to 5ghz stable -32 GB Tridant Royal Z at 3200mhz
Less important specs just incase somehow it matters: -1TB m.2 NVME where game and win10 are installed -MSI Mag Z590 GEW -1200 watt platinum PSU. While seeing reviews I was reading even with the 3090 which isn’t top of the line anymore they said I would be not even able to run on high settings m with DLSS at a solid 60fps.
My experience has blown me away maybe it’s the amount of ram I have since all benchmark system I seen had 16gb? My game is running so well better then most games since I have every setting at the max and I mean every setting as high as it will go I even have AF at 16x which is never needed running 4K but it runs so well I kept it like that.
All my ray tracing settings are cranked. Only settings I don’t have on and never use in any game are the film grain and the chromatic abbreviation with motion blur set to only “3” since I hate using the first 2 settings. I also don’t like too much motion blur either. So with everything possible on max plus being in 4K with quality DLSS which is scaling up from 1440p I have not gone below 60fps which one time at all.
I am playing this on a 4K tv instead of monitor so my girlfriend can watch the game too so i have v sync on which makes it stay at 60fps since its 60 hz tv and then I have my frame rate limiter set to 70 just to give it 10 frames extra without v sync
So basically I have steady fps, but why? I have been thinking of uploading a video even to ask why it runs so well for me. On top of steady FPS I have played the game for 14 hours so far without a single crash at all. I have yet to even have a long loading screen. It loads the same speed as most games these days I haven’t had issues yet. The only long load was at the beginning first launch when I let it do the shader thing. I found the shader thing interesting as it maxed my GPU and CPU to 100% usage the entire time it loaded them and it even had my ram usage at 83% a number I have never seen on my 32gb ram in a game in my life.
First seeing this I figured the game would surely run bad but after the shaders installed and the game came on my GPU stayed at high usage my CPU stayed around 40-50% usage and my ram around 25-30%. So I have had a amazing experience with this game to say the least I love it and I’m just so sorry for people who are having issues especially when I’m reading people who even have 4090- 4080s are having trouble.
Even people with RTX 3090 like me are having issues. I’m not sure what the issue is and I hope I can get insight why mine seems to be perfect while others with better hardware can have a hard time. I also play with a wired PS5 controller for the haptics. I was reading the mouse controls have stutter issues that are fixed by using a gamepad so maybe that’s also something to think about.
Anyways I really hope they do patch it or explain how people could run it better if it is needing more ram maybe because it’s not right to see all these people having issues.

2023.03.31 07:43 Gimpdiggity Got My Indoor Setup Done…Just In Time For Outdoor Riding!!

Got My Indoor Setup Done…Just In Time For Outdoor Riding!!
So I have a love-hate relationship with indoor riding. I’d much prefer to be outside, but my work hours this year made that a bit more difficult than the past few winters.
Also, I really dislike the cold…so it’s a bit of a lose-lose situation.
So this winter I finally decided to give Zwift a try. I wasn’t expecting to enjoy it much, but honestly it really surprised me. I ended up having quite a bit of fun.
So I finally got my basement “extra” room completely cleaned up and dedicated to this setup.
It’s got a 42” TV with a nice rolling stand. On the shelf of the stand is a fan.
The bike is a Marin Fairfax 1, which I bought specifically to go on the trainer. That way I don’t have to worry about swapping a bike on and off the trainer. It also lets me put an indoor specific tire on it which is much, much quieter than a regular tire. I got this bike brand new as a “demo” for dirt cheap, and for this purpose it’s perfect.
To finish off the setup I’ve got a KOM Cycling rocker, which was a fantastic upgrade. I had found on the other bike I’d been using I was getting a bit sore after about 45-55 minutes, despite being able to ride that same bike outdoors for several hours with no issues. I did some reading and found what I was experiencing was fairly common, and it’s mostly attributed to the fact that the trainer is so static whereas riding outside there’s much more movement. The rocker panel simulates this movement, and since I got it I’ve had no issues with soreness.
These rocker plates are expensive. The big brand ones go for $1000 or so. KOM sells theirs for $500. When I was going to add it to the cart, I noticed a message that said they have cosmetically damaged units available if you’re able to pick it up from their warehouse…in Lansing. Turns out it was right near my work, so I got one with a small chip in a corner for $250. If you’re looking for one of these and are remotely near Lansing, save yourself some cash and go pick up a blemished one!!
So I know that it’s starting to get a bit nicer out, so it’s a bad time to have finished setting this up…but I like having it down there as it will allow me to get short workouts in on days I’m not going on normal rides, and it will also let me ride indoors if the weather is really not cooperating.
Just thought I’d share. Not many of my friends or family really ride so I’ve got nobody to really share with.

2023.03.31 07:31 fgmtats Cough drop appeared next to me

A little bit of back story: So the house I’m currently living in has definitely come with it’s fair share of paranormal occurrences. Everything between seeing an actual figure walking down the hallway, to picture frames moving when I enter a room and turn on the lights, to a situation where my roommate reported hearing my voice beckoning him out into the living room.. while I wasn’t home. None of us have ever really gotten a sinister feeling during these occurrences and kind of just tried not to dwell on them or talk about them in the house as not to provoke/encourage whatever it is that is occupying the house.
The cough drop event: This happened about 20 minutes ago. I’m sitting in bed watching tv and on the wall in which my tv sits against is a periodic table. As I’m focused on the television I notice a blue glimmer of light on the periodic table that appeared for a split second and was gone by the time I shifted my focus from the tv to the poster. I shrugged this off as my imagination or just a glitch in my brain. About 10 minutes later I get up to grab a drink from my desk and notice there is a cough drop sitting next to me in my bed. Now I keep an extremely tighty room and unless I’m sleeping my bed is always made and I lounge on top of the comforter. Im not sick and haven’t carried or used a cough drop in well over a year. Furthermore the cough drops I do have in a drawer in my room are a separate brand. About 10 minutes before I noticed the cough drop I had just gone to the kitchen to grab some snacks. So I thought MAYBE there were cough drops in the cupboard and one somehow stuck to the package of one of the snacks. I knew this was extremely unlikely as the snacks I got were purchased recently and had no sort of adhesive anywhere on them. Nevertheless i wanted to true and debunk the weirdness of the situation. I go to the cupboard to see if there are any loose cough drops (the cupboard is above eye line above the fridge). Nothing. I then ask my roommate if he has any cough drops of that brand in the house to which he replies that he has ZERO cough drops in the house of any kind. I’ve tried playing out every possibility of how this random cough drop could have managed to appear next to me in bed and I just can’t.
I’ll post pictures

2023.03.31 07:17 Wicked-Death LG CX burn in after 6100 hours - Is this bad or is this typical?

I was playing a new game that has a lot of static bright colors and that’s when I noticed the slight burn-in. I could see the HUD from another game that I’ve played a TON of over the span of the TV’s life cycle. From what I seen it looked like just the HUD on the bottom left of the screen. I could see the health bar, character photo, etc; all faint and not super glaring, but again it’s there. Also, I’ve always had my brightness high, nice bright colors, HDR, etc.
I was just curious if I got the bad end of the stick with my hours or if this was typical. I bought the TV in December 2020. I got a little under 2 1/2 years of use before I noticed burn-in. For $1500-1600, I don’t know if I got a good deal or not. lol.

2023.03.31 07:13 greg0525 My little brother has been staring at the TV recently

I have a beloved little brother who is a toddler, and he and I have always had a special bond. We share a love of playtime, cartoons, and simply being together. Our parents are kind and loving, and they have always encouraged us to be curious and creative. We have a comfortable home filled with toys, books, and all sorts of fun things to do. Whether we are playing outside, building with blocks, or watching our favorite cartoons, we always have a great time together.
My little brother is full of energy and wonder, and he approaches the world with a sense of joy and excitement. He has a contagious laugh and an infectious smile that brightens up our day. Watching him grow and learn has been a source of pride and amazement for our entire family. I feel so lucky to have him as my brother, and I know that our bond will only grow stronger as we continue to journey through life together.
However, a few weeks ago, I noticed something quite strange happening with my little brother. I walked into the living room to find him sitting in front of the TV, watching what appeared to be nothing but white noise. The screen was completely blank, yet my brother was transfixed, staring at the TV with wide eyes and a big smile on his face.
"Hey, little bro, what are you watching?" I asked.
"TV!" he exclaimed, still staring at the screen.
"But there's nothing on the TV," I pointed out.
"Yes, there is!" Ben insisted, gesturing towards the white noise.
I was puzzled by this. I couldn't understand what he could possibly find entertaining about staring at a blank screen. But he seemed happy, so I didn't want to disturb him and I let it go.
This went on for weeks but it did not bother me. I had no idea what could be so captivating, but my brother was obviously enjoying himself and that was all that mattered. He would sit in front of the TV, with watching the white noise while I was reading a book or playing on my phone. It felt like my brother was in his own little world, filled with mystery and wonder. He seemed to have an endless source of joy from this mundane activity, and I couldn't help but marvel at how something so simple could bring him such happiness.
Eventually, I asked our parents if they had any idea why he enjoyed the white noise so much. They explained that sometimes toddlers can be strange, so there is nothing to worry about.
However, I started to notice a change in my brother's behavior. He had become obsessed with staring at the TV, and would spend hours staring at the screen. I tried to engage him in playtime and our favorite games, but he seemed more interested in the TV than anything else.
"Hey Ben, do you want to go outside and play our favorite game?" I asked him.
"No, I want to watch TV!" he replied, his eyes glued to the screen.
"But we always have so much fun playing together," I said, trying to entice him. "Remember when we built that awesome fort last week?"
"I don't care," he said, still transfixed by the TV.
I felt a pang of sadness in my heart. I missed our playtime together and our special bond. I knew that watching TV was not a bad thing, but I also knew that it was important for us to spend quality time together as siblings.
"Can we please play together, just for a little bit?" I pleaded.
"No, TV!" he insisted, ignoring my request.
I sighed and walked away, feeling a bit defeated. I knew that I couldn't force my brother to play with me, but I hoped that he would eventually come around and realize the importance of spending time together as a family.
So, about a week ago, I decided to join my brother in his strange little world of white noise.
As I watched, I noticed that the white noise on the screen seemed to have a soothing effect on my brother. The flickering static and the soft hiss of the TV seemed to calm him down and put him in a trance-like state. It was almost as if he was hypnotized by the white noise.
"I don't get it," I said, trying to engage him in conversation. "Why do you like this?"
"I like it!" he replied, still transfixed by the screen.
I tried to engage him in conversation, but he was completely absorbed in watching the white noise. He didn't respond to my questions or comments, and I realized that he was completely zoned out.
I found this whole experience to be quite weird and unsettling. It was as if my brother had found a strange and mysterious source of entertainment in something that should have been completely boring and uninteresting. Despite my confusion, I felt a strange sense of curiosity about what was going on inside my brother's head. What was he seeing on that blank screen that I couldn't see?
Then, I tried to focus on the screen. I did not move my eyes, I tried to find something. And then, very slowly, something was happening. From the millions of dancing black and white spots, I could make out some vague, animated geometric shapes such as circles, squares, and triangles, that moved and interacted with each other. They appeared to be engaged in communication with each other, as evidenced by their back-and-forth exchange.
“What the hell?” I said and got up to take a closer look at the TV and the cables behind it.
But as peeked at the back of the TV, the realization that it was not plugged in sent chills down my spine.
Since that moment, I moved to my girlfriend’s place and I have been unsure of what I should fear more: the house or my brother. Well, I have been avoiding both, just in case.
