See title thread. I went to get it this morning and it was gone. I had to walk home in the rain. I am not happy. Do you think I should ask security to view the CCTV to identify the culprit. I'm guessing it's a female as men don't really do umbrellas. I only did as it was pissing it down and I don't own a hat. What should I do when/If I find the thievin fuckstain???
Im gonna start taking steroids.
I'm not sure what if anything this is going to achieve but I been goin gym for maybe 4 months now and no women seem to have noticed. Will a better physique make the difference. I doubt it. But as someone here said 'there's no gym for your face'. So I at least gotta try right? Over for givingupcels.
This is a real story, a story of how I came to be here.
It all started when I was 13. I was in year 9 in highschool, and I met a nice, gothic girl who was in the 6th form at the time (Making her 17 at the time) We talked before school began in the library, and I was happy to get attention from a sweet, pretty, older girl. After a while, we exchanged numbers and Facebook contact and started to talk online when we weren't in school. We got into a sort of "relationship" around 3-4 months later. During this relationship, she constantly forced herself on me (no intercourse) over the course of many months, trying to basically coax me into sex. I would stay at her house often when her parents were away, and one night, she tried to force me to have sex with her for the first time, I refused, and she slammed her fists down onto my stomach two times which made me vomit almost right away. I was crying and trying to leave, but she managed to somehow calm me down and get me to go to sleep. I slept in the corner of her bed as far away as I could from her, obviously really horrified of what she'd done. When we woke up in the morning, she tried to make me feel better about what happened the night before by smothering me with love and acting like it didn't happen. I was suspicious but thought it was nice of her to try make amends. We ate breakfast together like we usually did in those days and relaxed on the couch, watching anime together, further into the day, everything was going like normal and I went home, and we messaged again. She basically apologised almost a hundred times when we were messaging throughout the day, I didn't respond to them after a certain amount and kept pretending it never happened.
I get emotional writing this bros, so I'll continue to update as I feel.
Last Christmas day, my husband and I hosted my family in our small house. Eight family members attended, all adults over the age of 40. One of my currently unmarried sisters, MG, who lives alone a couple of hours away, was unable to attend because she could not make arrangements for her dog. When she asked if she could bring the dog, I told her that I understood the dog was an important part of her family, but we do not have pets in our house.
This is a rule my husband and I established when we married. MG is aware of that. Also, this dog has bitten me before, nips at everyone, and also attacked MG's face while she was asleep, which resulted in medical care. Yesterday, I sent out the invite via email to family for Christmas this year. I received this response from MG: "I would love to join my family if I can bring Buffy with me. If you wish to exclude her, then I will be unable to join my family."
I will not break the rule my husband and I established. I do want to be kind, but I don't feel that I really need to explain myself when I have extended an invitation to someone to come to my home. I thought sending the invitation this far out would allow MG adequate time to make arrangements for her dog for one day. Clearly, she is not interested in doing that. Please, wise Fodorites, especially those with pets, help me respond in a kind way.
Some of the replies:
Sorry, but I don't think I would be coming to Christmas dinner, either, if I were her. Her dog is like her child. Why would she want to leave him alone all day? It's hard to find someone to care for a dog on Christmas day.
If your house rules are more important than seeing your sister, then I guess you'll have to see her another time.
MY pet is MY child but we certainly do not have trouble finding pet care on any holiday. Perhaps that is because we live in a fairly large town. And nobody loves their pet more than I do, period.
I would not EVER ask someone to allow my pet into their home and I certainly wouldn't do so if I KNEW the people didn't want any pets in their home.
The invitee in question simply has to decide if "joining my family" is more important than consigning a pet to the care of another for one day. Her attempt to generate a guilt trip is selfish and pathetic.

We have the rule because we don't like animals in a home. I realize we are in the minority; truly I do.
What am I looking to achieve in terms of our animal rule or our Christmas situation? Animal rule is a personal preference my DH and I share equally. I'm looking to achieve a pleasant family Christmas. We had a lovely time last year.
Specifics regarding this particular dog: She nips at everyone. She has bitten me in the past, drawing blood. She has attacked her owner's face in the middle of the night. She barks. She will not allow people to hug each other in her presence. Our home is small, and she doesn't sit still. She can't be shut up in a room. She can't be left outside alone. She can't be left in a car because she will bark and disturb neighbors. She has behavior issues with other dogs, but that's not relevant here. Nobody in our family likes this dog.
My father came to my home with his dog. Fanny is an old teck ale absolutely lively. My dog doesn't like her. So fanny had not the time to enter the house that mine jumped on her and bit her nose - she eventually had to be stitched. I find that my dog is a butch but have to side with her since she is at home. So fanny is now canis non grata.
But I love some if the answers from the lounge. The best is the ass who reduces it to a rule of power. I have also some rules at home : - thou will not smoke in here - thou will lower the toilet plank after taking a piss - thou will not vomit inside the house. I consider I have the right to not accept people who don t follow my rules. I also have the right to break my own rules. And face the consequences with my wife 🤣🤣🤣
Everybody knew that this guy was going to get in trouble just from the first paragraph of his post.
Since the last time I went to Paris I have switched to a carnivore diet and only eat beef and salt. Moreover, I eat a lot of fatty beef, suet, and organ meats. I have trouble finding restaurants to eat at in the USA because there's always some seasoning or cooking oil that contaminates the meat and I have an allergy to it.
Obviously, the shit hit the fan, but 125 posts later, the person actaully returned to report on his trip.
For those interested, I really dug the prime rib at Hippopotamus. I at a large meal there nearly every day, and was able to easily find a clean ribeye at other restaurants when I wasn't near a Hippo. 2 meals a day, no major problems. I do confess the rest of the French fare was very visually and nasally appealing, and I walked through more than one bakery visually sampling the wares. I held tight though and outwalked every member of the group.
France is a place where I feel I can easily go back and visit without having to worry about starving or getting negative reactions from having to eat other foods.
I found a number of DB waiters trying to get large tips, but most were good and I had a positive experience everywhere I went. My group was not easily served as we had a number of folks who were challenging travelers and didn't speak either French or English and a crying baby, so I typically tipped 8-10% for a large group for dinners, except for the guys who when I asked for change for a tip, handed them a $20 euro note, they brought back two $10s. Those guys got a number of small coins.
Conclusion: Paris, at least in the center, can easily be done by carnivores eating out. I averaged 50-60 euros per day for 2 cooked ribeyes or Prime Rib, and Hippopotamus was the easiest, most economical place to get what I wanted with the largest quantity per meal.
Of course, now part 2 of the debate has begun with the 8-10% tipping issue...
Ince i was sitting at a terrace and the woman next ti me lit a cigarette. I asked her if she could be nice and sit further back. She said no but she would nit smoke if my friend kept his arms lowered. My friend sweats profusely. He has a perfect hygiene and i have never smelled anything coming from him but he just sweats. He was embarrassed. I was furious. She had not the sense to shut up. I lashed myself at her. Some people are horrible.
"First and formost do not try to quench an engine with water .that is wrong. 1.engine has a lot of flammable liquids,which makes it dangerous because water contains oxygen. 2.for any fire to occur 3 elements are required,mainly being oxygen,fuel +heat will give u a fire. So once you pour water on flammable liquids you will be fanning the fire with oxygen in the water."
My biggest problem lately is that my digital assistants are giving me the silent treatment. I finally figured it out yesterday. I suffer from Sirilexia, which I invented. It's where you keep calling your Apple assistant Alexa and your Amazon assistant Siri. You get silence. You don't even get a "Are you talking to me?". I know, it's a first world problem, but I seem to be always using the wrong name with the wrong device.
They've come up with plant-based pork. And evidently it can be certified Kosher and Halal. Beyond weird...
Not from a forum but a snippet from the Coronavirus coverage in the Globe and Mail (a major Canadian newspaper. In Angela Merkel's speech to the nation, she spoke out against "Hamstern".
"She thanked shelf-stockers and cashiers, surely a first for a political leader’s major speech, and gently admonished Germans for “hamstern,” or panic buying (think of a hamster stuffing its cheeks with food)".
It must have been dead scary for any kids in the shop...seeing Mum getting a thump from a stranger and the yelling and pushing. You can see the anger in the Prime Minister's face and voice when he said he'd never been so ashamed of his country and "This is not the Australian way".

My wife is a new convert to Islam, she is a English woman and I'm doing my best to help her understand Islam with the little knowledge that I know hoping that God accepts from me. Upon hearing that a Muslim woman is going to lead the Friday prayer for men and women in some US mosque, encouraged by the voices of some associations that fight for the equality of the sexes. I had a discussion with her regarding this matter and as I was myself confused I did not know how to convince her about what's religiously acceptable and what's not. Please help with advice and feedback.
All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah, and that Muhammad sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam ( may Allah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.
The position of the Islamic Law about a woman leading a man or men in prayer is clear that it is forbidden and it is not accepted for her to lead (them) in prayer. If a woman leads a man in prayer, his prayer is void and he has to make it up. This is a matter which is agreed upon among the jurists may Allah have mercy upon them with the exception of those who deviated from the correct opinion.
The evidence that a woman cannot lead a man in prayer is the saying of the Prophet sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam ( may Allah exalt his mention ): "The best rows for women are the last rows and the worst rows for them are the first rows [behind men] and the best rows for men are the first rows, and the worst rows are the last rows." Since the Prophet sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam ( may Allah exalt his mention ) described the first rows of women behind men as the worst rows, it is not permissible for a woman to be in front of men and lead the prayers!
I got this really weird comment on a cat protection and rescue site, from a Jewish person (this is relevant here)
"I really don’t like it when others refer to my religion when it is not there religion. “Especially stringent” makes Judaism sound onerous which it is not. People do their best, and they ask their Rav (rabbinic decisor) for advice if need be. My RC friend feels sad that Palm Sunday will not happen this year as per other years and while I can’t understand it, I can empathize".
My (polite) response:
I was COMPLIMENTING Judaism and Jewish communities, not criticising! How can being more respectful of hygiene be viewed as a fault?
I have no religion whatsoever, but I do have Catholic traditions, though I’m a devout atheist. And have a lot of Jewish friends here, in Europe and in South America (Argentina and Brazil). Most but not all are as faithless as I am, but traditions remain.
If people are studying comparative religions, or comparative literature etc, obviously some of them will be of one tradition, as compared to their colleagues from others. That is why these fields of studies are richer if they encompass people from diffrent faith and cultural traditions.
Not going into my graduate essays and theses, but they involved both Carlo and Primo Levi.
I was very pissed off at Ms so-and-so insinuating that I was some kind of antisemite. That is on the level of accusing people of being pedophiles.
"I really don’t like it when others refer to my religion when it is not there(sic) religion." Logically then it seems nobody can comment on anything if they are not part of it, whatever that thing is. Far too sensitive some people and tie that in with often religious people viewing everything through the lens of their religion, plus being very defensive about the religion due to historcal reasons.
Cosmic Book News says one theory “offers that Hanks is a high-ranking Freemason or member of the Illuminati that is involved with the Coronavirus hoax in order to bring about a one world socialist order and destruction of the United States as we know it”.
It is claimed that Hanks and his wife, Rita Wilson, like many other Hollywood celebrities and sports figures that have tested positive, are not actually infected with the coronavirus.
Their son Chet Hanks responded to the accusations that his family is part of an Illuminati hoax with a tongue-in-cheek video on Instagram this week - although further stoked the theories by showing off a tattoo of the All Seeing Eye, a symbol long associated with the secretive group.
