2023.03.28 20:30 throwRa17377483 My[29F] bf[30M] doesn't buy me luxury gifts like his past girls
I [29F] dated my bf [30M] in college for 1 year while he was at his worst/broke. We broke up and eventually made our way back to each other. We have currently been dating for a year. I don't expect or demand expensive gifts and is always appreciative of everything he has given me. I recently heard from a common friend that he has given his exes and other girls luxury hand bags, necklaces, and other gifts. He dropped 7k on a girl for the first date. One ex got a designer necklace, bag, and laptop within 1 months of dating. His other ex also received a designer necklace and ring. The most expensive thing he ever got me was dinner (around $150) I don't expect expensive gifts but when I heard of everything he has done for other girls, I can't help but compare.
I know this is wrong but after all this, I went through his phone and saw everything he said about me. While we were together in the past, he felt like he could do better which explains why he treated me terribly. He wasn't sexually attracted to me and would always look at other girls. He did mentioned that he would miss me even though he was seeing other girls while we were apart. Everytime we were together he would look at other girls but if we weren't together he couldn't stop thinking about me. He basically regretted his decision and eventually asked me to try once more.
I honestly don't know how to feel about this. I was genuine and was trying my best to become a better partner while all he could think about was how he could do better. He used to be insecure about how I would leave him for someone better since he isn't conventional attractive. He does treat me better and loves me but after hearing about the past I'm not sure. He could be using me as a placeholder until something better comes along. The fact that he doesn't buy me expensive gifts like the other girls makes me feel like he's not as invested in our relationship. I would understand if all the girls were better looking than me but I am prettier than some of them. He works in investment banking and his income has gone up over the years, so he isn't unable to afford these gifts for me. I have spent more on his gifts even though I don't make as much as him.
I'm not sure if I should question him about this since I did go through his phone and our friend wanted me to keep it a secret.

2023.03.28 20:29 markkaschak With the SOLE aim of increasing understanding RE: some players' Biblical reasons for not wearing Pride jerseys...
I figure it's beneficial to offegain a better understanding if it can be managed without me shoving things in your face, so thanks for reading if you choose to. TL;DR: Tons of Biblical law no longer applies and is misunderstood. Scroll to the "EXPLANATION" for the SparkNotes™ version.
To paraphrase (always a great idea with the Bible) a few common ones: You can't wear garments with mixed fibers, eat shellfish, or shave the edge of your beard (playoffs are safe for now I guess).
"I believe in the Bible" doesn't mean "I obey everything written in the Bible" because the Bible isn't comprised entirely of written law. While it does contain laws that Christians must always obey (the Ten Commandments, for example), not every law is of that kind. Some were laid down for specific people at a specific time for a specific reason, and as such don't apply today. In many cases, these laws have since become part of a historical account of larger spiritual significance.
Long story short: The Bible has stories too. It even contains romantic poetry. If I'm to "obey" the Song of Songs, I'm absolutely fucked. My game just ain't that good.
These laws applied to 1) a specific group of people at 2) a specific time in Biblical history for 3) a specific purpose. Namely, God gave these laws to 1) the Jews, who had 2) just escaped Egypt, for the express purpose of 3) making it clear through their way of life that they were "set apart" as God's people.
If these laws sound outdated, it's because they literally are. There are no more recently-escaped Jewish ex-slaves whom God wants to mark as His own as they enter a new land filled with different people. Again, this isn't a "proclamation of truth" but rather an explanation of Christian belief regarding these laws and why many seem to cherry-pick the ones to follow. It's more than just "I don't wanna" or "I don't actually believe in the Bible".
Granted, the intended application of these laws may still seem just as insane to you. That's fine. Just know that modern-day Christian hockey players have reason to believe they're not violating God's law when Fanatics rolls out whatever shit-ass mixed fiber they've got planned for the next decade... ugh.

2023.03.28 20:29 daywalkerwithsoul Landlord wants me to paint my walls when I move out... what do I do?
Hey there. I live in UKV in Chicago. I have a lot of stuff on my walls, mostly from command strips, but I do have some things that are nailed in. My landlord told me he expects me to repaint the walls myself...I am not a professional painter and I refuse to pay for one because I don't have a security deposit. He basically was like "oh your lease says it needs to be returned the same way you received it."
Tbh I would not want some random chick to paint the walls in my apt that I'm renting out but whatever that's not my prerogative...
I talked to someone else who moved out of the building and my landlord apparently told them that they just have to patch holes, no paint.
Are there any tenants rights about this or does anyone have experience with moving out in a similar scenario? Do I have to paint the walls? Has anyone ever been like sued in small claims or something if they haven't painted the walls? I'm so annoyed LOL

2023.03.28 20:28 kooks42 Buying a house on my own vs waiting & buying with partner - looking for opinions
Hey, would like to get second opinions on this situation from a (mostly) financial POV, I realise it is ultimately a personal choice though. - Please let me know if not suitable for this sub too! -
Essentially: I live in one city, my partner of 1.5yrs lives in another. We would like to live together and he has a mortgage (bought 2yrs ago), I rent.
I would rather stay in my city because it has more going on and I work in the office 3 days a week (he WFH full time), meaning a 1hr commute. But logically, we wouldn't rent here when he has a house so we've thought of the following options:
- I move there for 6 months and if it goes well, we'll buy together in my city (selling his house).
- I buy here and he moves in (renting his or doubling payments for a bit before selling)
- Either way we go, we've talked about moving to Edinburgh in a few years so possible we'd only be here for 3-5yrs (although not certain)
- Also complicated by both having cats, we'd rather not disrupt their little lives more than needed *
I can't afford as much as buying together and we'd be in a less desirable area, but we could move in 3-5yrs - either to a better area or Edinburgh - and buy together then.
Buying on my own gives me assets and more security if the relationship went south, but if we then buy together to upgrade after a short time, would it be a lot of money down the drain from moving costs/house not gaining value?
It's all a gamble really but wondered if anyone had insight/anecdotes/advice. Thanks for reading and happy to give more detail just didn't want to ramble on too much!

2023.03.28 20:28 daCatburgla Road tripping through southwest France soon. What French novel should I bring with me?
My family and I are heading to southwest France in early May. We're renting a car in Bordeaux and driving around the Dordogne and Basque Country for a few weeks. We're B&B hopping in smaller towns such as Itxassou, Nerac, and Fajoles and looking forward to immersing ourselves in the history of the area.
I'm looking for a great book to accompany me. I'm open to any style or genre, but I'm hoping for something by a French author and it'll need to be available as an English translation. Bonus points if the novel is set in this area!

2023.03.28 20:28 CommercialPut9476 Here's How To Watch 'Scream 6' Online Free: Is Scream VI (2023) Streaming On Paramount Plus, HBO Max Or Netflix
Horror Movies! Here are options for downloading or watching Scream 6 streaming the full movie online for free on 123movies & Reddit, including where to watch the Paramount Pictures horror movies at home. Is Scream VI 2023 available to stream? Is watching Scream 6 on Disney Plus, HBO Max, Netflix or Amazon Prime? Yes, we have found an authentic streaming option/service. Watch Now: Scream 6 Online Free Watch Now: Scream 6 Online Free
The Scream franchise continues to deliver some of the best horror movies in the business. Thanks to great character development, amazing set pieces, and an engaging story, our Scream 6 review gave the film a rare 9 out of 10. If you're a fan of any of the Scream movies, this one is a must-watch.
Ghostface is back! There was an 11-year gap between the fourth and fifth installments of the Scream films — and it looks like the ultra-long waits for new chapters of the hit slasher movies have come to an end as Scream VI is set to hit theaters this week.
Starring Jenna Ortega and Melissa Barrera, Scream VI picks up where its predecessor left off — with Tara and Samantha moving from Woodsboro, Calif., and starting over in New York City. However, they soon become the target of a new Ghostface killer.
So where can you watch Scream VI? Is it on Netflix? What about HBO Max? Here's your guide to everything you need to know about how to watch slasher franchise Scream 6 where to watch it.
When Is Scream 6 Release Date? If you're wondering when the next Scream movies is coming out, it's in theaters tonight. The wider release date is set for March 10, 2023. The film will supposedly feature the "most agressive and violent Ghostface we've ever seen".
It will not be available on any streaming platform, nor will it be available to rent or buy via any digital or VOD service such as Amazon Prime.
Scream 6 Scream 6 Where To Watch Scream 6: As of now, the only way to watch Scream 6 is to head out to a movie theater when it releases on Friday, March 10. You can find a local showing on Fandango.
Watch Now: Scream 6 Online Free
Otherwise, you’ll just have to wait for it to become available to rent or purchase on digital platforms like Amazon, Vudu, YouTube and Apple, or become available to stream on Paramount+.
When Will Scream 6 Be Available to Stream Online? We don't yet know when Scream 6 will be available to stream at home. We do know, however, that it will most likely be coming to Paramount+ rather than Netflix or HBO Max. If Scream 5 is any indication of what we can expect for the latest film, we could possibly see it getting a digital release just 45 days after it hits theaters. That would put the date sometime around late April potentially.
Will Scream 6 Be On Netflix? No, Scream 6 will not be on Netflix — at least not anytime soon, since it will go to Paramount+ after its theatrical run.
Scream 6 will likely not release on Netflix, as it should be exclusive to Paramount Plus when it releases on streaming. Paramount Pictures and Spyglass Media Group are the companies behind the horror flick, so it would be a very strange move for them to allow the movie to stream elsewhere.
Will Scream 6 Be On HBO Max? No, Scream 6 is not on HBO Max since it’s not a Warner Bros. movie. Last year, the company released its films in theaters and on the streamer on the same day. However, they now allow a 45-day window between the theatrical release and the streaming release.
Will Scream 6 Be On Paramount? While a Paramount+ release date for Scream VI has not yet been announced, we can make an estimate based on a previous Paramount Pictures movie. Babylon, which was released in theaters on Dec. 23, 2022, came to the streaming platform on Feb. 21, 2023 — about two months after its debut. If Scream VI follows the same trajectory, we could be watching it from the comfort of our homes by mid-May 2023.
Is Scream 6 Available On Hulu? Viewers are saying that they want to view the new horror movie Scream 6 on Hulu. Unfortunately, this is not possible since Hulu currently does not offer any of the free episodes of this series streaming at this time. It will be exclusive to the MTV channel, which you get by subscribing to cable or satellite TV services. You will not be able to watch it on Hulu or any other free streaming service.
How to Watch Scream Online: The Scream franchise debuted in 1996, with a screenplay by Kevin Williamson (then best-known for creating Dawson’s Creek) and director Wes Craven, a lifelong horror fan who created the A Nightmare on Elm Street franchise. The film was a huge commercial and critical success, bringing in almost $200 million at the box office worldwide, while helping to revive the “slasher film” genre (just see all the other horror films that were made after the success of Scream). The opening scene with Drew Barrymore remains one of the most memorable — and most-spoofed — scenes today.
If you want to watch the original Scream online, you can find it on Paramount+. A Paramount+ subscription starts at just $4.99 a month and will let you watch the 1996 Scream online on your laptop, TV, tablet or phone. You can stream Scream as many times as you want with your Paramount+ login.

Here we can download and watch 123movies movies offline. 123Movies website is the best alternative to Scream VI (2023) free online. We will recommend 123Movies is the best Solarmovie alternatives.

You can also watch it on-demand or on a streaming app available on your TV or streaming device if you have cable.
Scream 6 Cast and Characters Scream 6 was written by James Vanderbil, Guy Busick, and Kevin Williamson. It was directed by Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett and stars the following actors:
Melissa Barera as Sam Carpenter Jenna Ortega as Tara Carpenter Jasmin Savoy Brown as Mindy Meeks-Martin Mason Gooding as Chad Meeks-Martin Courtney Cox as Gale Weathers Hayden Panettiere as Kirby Reed What is Scream VI about? Scream VI is the third film of the series to be set outside the fictional town of Woodsboro, California, moving the location to New York City, and follows a new Ghostface who targets the surviving members of the "Woodsboro Legacy Attacks."
Following the latest Ghostface killings, the four survivors leave Woodsboro behind and start a fresh chapter. In Scream VI, Melissa Barrera (“Sam Carpenter”), Jasmin Savoy Brown (“Mindy Meeks-Martin”), Mason Gooding (“Chad Meeks-Martin”), Jenna Ortega (“Tara Carpenter”), Hayden Panettiere (“Kirby Reed”) and Courteney Cox (“Gale Weathers”) return to their roles in the franchise alongside Jack Champion, Henry Czerny, Liana Liberato, Dermot Mulroney, Devyn Nekoda, Tony Revolori, Josh Segarra, and Samara Weaving.

2023.03.28 20:27 MITWestbrickk [Tenant - US CA] Will self-employed people always be at a disadvantage when trying to rent?
Currently been looking to rent a room or apartment in California. All of them want paystubs, obviously as a self employed person I don't get any. I try to say I can provide bank statements and or my tax returns but none of them are interested. I have a good amount of money saved just in case business does slow down (by good amount I mean about 3 years of rent) but when I show landlords that they also aren't interested. Any advice appreciated

2023.03.28 20:27 ikeabitch Me (f29) and my partner (m30) of 9 years are splitting up. What are some practical things I should consider as I go into living independently for the first time?
My partner and I were together since I was 19 and he was 20. We own a property together, which we’re in the process of selling, and I’m moving into rented accommodation, but I’ll be looking to buy my own place in a few months time.
What are some practical things for living independently as a solo woman I should think about?
I will be taking our 2 dogs, don’t have a car, and make about £60k annually before tax. I feel I can live decently on this (live in a non-London major city in the UK). I have no children or dependents other than my dogs.
I’m pretty excited but also nervous to live on my own! Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

2023.03.28 20:27 AdClean4590 I know this doesn't matter to people but I wanna get it out
I'm sorry for bugging everyone's day but I really need advice I'm experiencing some amount of changes in my life and I feel more depressed than I used to be well ill explain. Sometime back I moved in with my dad in an apartment and it was fun I'd go to school, go home, take out my dog, play video games until my dad came home and brought me food, eat, and then sleep and life was simple but then I started to get made fun of and due to my brain who has an instant trigger for things I immediately changed myself I cut my hair, stopped wearing shorts, went to school less and it changed some things and then I decided to Try online dating because nobody actually likes me and I met this girl (won't specify name) who was amazing and she was mine and I had so much fun being with her I made new friends, my friends would talk to me more, then something happened (I won't specify what because it's not my info to give) where her schizophrenic mom took her phone. Now I may mention that her mother was abusive and crazy but we won't get into that. So her mom took her phone and I'm not sure if she got it back or not. But about 2 months before I'm writing this she broke up with me and the reason was because she couldn't handle not talking to me. I started the 5 stages of grief and I started to become more aggressive towards adults like my father so he started becoming more aggressive and he'd yell at me and abuse me like he used to when I was younger. So my dad become this self-proclaimed asshole who git mad at everything I did and would abuse me. Now I must say I have a line of trauma over the years but if you wish to know them then ask. Now back to the grief part, so I started to go through the 5 stages of grief and I still am but they weren't in order so I'll order them the way it happened to me. Bargaining: I tried to be friends but she didn't want that, Denial: I tried to belive that she'd come back, Anger: I was mad at her for leaving me for not a very valid reason, Depression: the one I'm still on, and acceptance: haven't gone through it yet. So I'm basically trying to ask if this is a valid reason to be depressed or if km just being a sensitive asshole. (P.S I'm not gonna specify when or where this all happened)

2023.03.28 20:26 Gutsifly Minotaur Build
i d like to build a character, that utilizes the Bonus Action of the (MMOTM) Minotaur to throw enemies around for some benefit. A force of nature, that is hard to kill and hard to stop in his tracks.
So how could i build it? I know that Crusher + Hornthrow can knock the enemy prone. So is there a way to gain great benefit from this (without abusing the mechanic too much - Westmarches).
I first thought Battlemaster for added Shove Attack, but i guess that is not needed? Rune Knight for Shoving even big stuff seems fitting, yet i dont know how to benefit from the shove afterwards (apart from grappling i guess, which could of course work) and i dont see this as a mere Grappler build. Ranger d have spike growth to benefit from the shove, but its CONc saves will be bad as Ranger - and MC will be hard as i d need WIS & DEX & STR & CON...
Do you have an idea how i could go about such a build?
TLDR; How could i build a funny Minotaur build, that takes advantage from Crusher and the Hornthrow - and still is fun to play and has some strategic value?

2023.03.28 20:26 Revolutionary_Entry1 Family reunion visa and House contract
I have a question, My spouse has applied for Family reunion visa and today auslanderbehorde has asked me to submit few forms. I have all the documents but the apartment (27 sq. meter) in which I am currently living is sublet and ABH has asked me to get a form filled from the landlord but my house contract is expiring in 1 month and I have asked the main tenant to get it filled from the landlord but the chances are slim. Could you suggest me other alternatives that I can show ABH for visa processing. I have few viewings next week but the new contract will take some time and I am afraid if i change my address, the FRV application will be affected ?
If someone has faced similar situation or has any idea to deal with this situation please let me know.

2023.03.28 20:26 BunnyLa274 AITA For not warning my friend about her bf?
I dated this psycho my junior year of high school. We'll call him Rick. He would fight guys for talking to me, threaten to unalive himself if I dumped him, burned my initials into his hands and stalk me at my house. He eventually got sent to an alternative schooling facility for kicking a new guy in the face just because I was showing him around, as per the office secretary's request. The new guy ended up needing stitches on his first day of school. Anyway, 8 glorious months with no contact allowed, I thought that was the end of my nightmare. Then they let him come back to finish out senior year. He immediately wanted me back and was still very threatening, so I agreed out of fear of what he might do. I was terrified of him. My best friend Brandy was the only person I shared all of my concerns with. I trusted her completely. Fast forward a couple months and Rick hands me a note between classes. It was a break up note. He'd been cheating on me with...(drumroll)...Brandy. I felt such a range of emotions all at once. I was shocked Brandy would do something like that because she wasn't the "steal your man" type. Mad because regardless of the situation, she knew he was my bf and cheated with him anyway. Relieved he was gone, but worried for her safety. It was ridiculous. She came up to me the next day, holding his hand and acting like everything was fine, so I decided to do the same. I'd told her in the past what he was like and I felt it was no longer my problem. We remained "friends" for a while afterwards so I got all the gory details. Here's a speed round of what happened the following years: He knocked her up graduation night. They got married. They fought constantly, he threatened her and would punch holes in the walls throughout their apartment (never hit her to my knowledge). He cheated. She forgave him. They had the baby. He cheated a lot more. Got an STD. She finally left him. Ok. So after they were legally separated, she met a nice guy and they dated for a while. Rick found out, tracked them down at a local park the day their divorce was finalized and tried to unalive them with a hunting knife. Luckily, her new bf was pretty good at self defense and they got away with just a few non life threatening wounds. Rick went to prison. Brandy married the new guy. She told me afterwards she knew he was crazy, but she wished I would've went into more detail before she started dating him. I thought that was ironic since I told her everything and she went behind my back so how was I supposed to know she planned on being with him? Anyway, it's 10 yrs later and he just got out of prison and I'm worried he might try again. Was there something more I could've done or said to prevent this? I feel like since I didn't know her intentions, it's not really my responsibility, but I also feel guilty for some reason.
Tl;dr: psycho bf and bsf cheated behind my back after I told her he was insane then he tried to murder her when they got divorced.
So AITA? And if not, why do I feel guilty?

2023.03.28 20:26 LIS1050010 Do You Have the Skills You Need to Survive a Depression?
Do you think you have the skills to survive a Depression
Let’s face it. We may say we’re preparing for winter blizzards or freak hurricanes, but down deep, if you’re a prepper, what you’re really preparing for is a collapse of America’s economy
. It may happen within a few days, or it may be a continual downward slide over many years. Its causes may include numerous Katrina-size natural disasters, a toppling federal government, chaos on Main Street, and the odd meteor or two.
Regardless of the causes, we want our families to be as secure as possible
for the long haul.
So, the question that naturally arises is: How do you prepare for a Greatest Depression?
Is it even possible to prepare for something that may last a decade or much, much longer? Is it better to be a homeowner, even if someday you’re unable to make your mortgage payments, or is it better to have mobility and rent? Should you leave your life savings and retirement funds where they are or take the tax and penalty hit and invest in land, or gold, or a year’s worth of food?
While there are no definitive answers to these questions, you can take stock of your level of preparedness, see where the gaps are, and work to fill them.
Assess Your Depression Survival Skills
Let’s begin by evaluating your skills that would help you survive a depression
. Answer yes or no to the following questions:
Easy skills level:
- Do you know how to sew on a button?
- Do you know how to use an oil lamp?
- Do you know how to boil an egg?
- Do you know how to ride a bike?
- Do you know how to keep houseplants alive?
If you answered yes to all
five, move on to the next level.
Medium skills level:
- Do you know how to cut up a whole chicken?
- Do you know how to hem or fix a rip in clothing?
- Do you have a stocked first aid kit in your home?
- Do you know how to build and maintain a fire?
- Do you know how to cook and season dried beans?
If you answered yes to any
of the five, move on to the next level.
Hard skills level:
- Do you know how to grow your own vegetables?
- Do you know how to use a pattern and sew your own clothes?
- Do you know how to can fruits and vegetables?
- Do you know how to start a fire without matches?
- Do you know how to raise chickens?
- Do you have a fully prepared emergency kit in your home?
- Do you own and know how to use a gun?
- Do you or someone in the home know how to fish and hunt?
- Do you have a well-stocked pantry?
- Do you know how to make a quilt?
- Do you know how to bake bread from scratch?
- Do you know CPR and basic first aid skills?
- Do you have the physical ability to ride a bike?
- Do you know how to purify water for drinking?
- Do you know how to cook in a dutch oven with charcoal?
If you answered yes to all
in this level, congratulations! You will survive.
If you passed the easy and medium levels but failed the hard level, not to worry. You are teachable.
A Boy Scout learns 99% of these depression survival skills! Select a skill to learn, make a plan, and then work the plan! Rinse and repeat.
Now, let’s consider a question.
Readers Respond: How Should We Prepare for a Greatest Depression?
If we could talk with survivors of the first Great Depression and ask them, “If you could go back to 1925, how would you have prepared for the Great Depression,” I wonder what they would say.
We’re preparing for something on a worldwide scale, so I asked Survival Mom readers this question: How should we prepare for a Greatest Depression?
Here is a curated selection of those responses.
- Is it possible to prepare for something that may last decades? Yes, but it’s not easy. I think it involves home ownership (not a mortgage, which means the bank pretty much owns your home), enough land for self-sustainability, and the skills to utilize that land. I see prepping as something that will help me get through lean times. Hopefully, we never have to survive totally off our food storage. Instead, our food storage will just help us stretch our budget if things get hard. (Bitsy)
- I remember my grandparents and uncles talking about the Great Depression and WWII rationing; honestly, I don’t think they noticed a huge difference in their lives. They lived very simple lives in eastern Kentucky, my grandfather quitting school at 7 to go to work. But they also had skills that most of us preppers can only dream of. Inflated food costs were no big deal if you were growing most all of what you needed. They kept gardens, orchards, chickens, and cows. Made their own clothes. Mended their own shoes. Never really strayed too far from home. If we’re going to survive something long-term, we HAVE to relearn those basic skills and learn to take care of ourselves. (Andrea)
- The way I look at it, my food storage and other preps are giving me OPTIONS and increased flexibility at a time when we might all need to be extremely creative to thrive. I won’t be nearly so dependent on a steady paycheck, so even if I lose my job, I can make it for some amount of time without facing utter hopelessness. If I’m fortunate enough to have a job and steady pay, I can use my money for needs other than food. All I’ve stored is insurance and wealth for bartering. (Linda)
- We know how to can, dehydrate, and we are saving many staples, but do we know how to fix and repair? Can we stitch a wound or have an understanding of herbal remedies for when doctors are not in the budget? The preparation we need to do is on every single level of our lives. (Kris)
- I think of food storage as a supplement if things somehow manage to limp along. If things completely collapse, then food storage becomes not a supplement but a bridge to tide us over while new ways of growing and transporting food are worked out. Keep in mind that there are basic differences in types of food. Grain is relatively easy to transport for long distances and is more likely to be at least somewhat available. Perishable items like meat, eggs, and fresh vegetables are likely to only be available according to what is locally produced or from your own backyard. Basic gardening skills can be ramped up fairly quickly, but those basic skills take years to learn. If you anticipate the need to produce your own food, get started now. Even if it is on a very small scale, you need to learn by experience what works and what doesn’t for your situation. Once you’ve got the basics covered, expanding the output is just a matter of doing more of the same. Buying a can of “survival seeds” and thinking that you’ll just plant them if the need arises is not a plan – it is almost guaranteed to fail at a time when failure could have very serious consequences. Can we prepare for something that will last for generations? That is really the question in a society such as ours, where the same systems that make us so efficient and wealthy are extremely fragile and interconnected by their very nature. Our system has no resilience, so if one part collapses, it can take everything else down with it. My preparations for a multi-generational collapse take a different approach than the typical prepper. Long-term preparations include a home-schooling library for our grandchildren, an extensive library on a wide variety of topics, “obsolete” technology in the form of slide rules (they were used for all the calculations that put man on the moon and built the Boeing 747), and quality basic hand tools and fasteners of various types. The worst thing that could happen in this regard is for our society to lose the basic knowledge we have built over the past 6,000 years. (Stephen M.)
- Before the Great Depression, most Americans did not live the life of affluence, that is the middle class and above standard of today. They were not poor by that era’s standard. As a matter of fact, compared to their immigrant parents’ life in the old world, they were very well off. Go look at a middle-class house built around the turn of the last century. Rooms are small to conserve heat. The closets are tiny because that’s all the room they needed. Few people had more than two or three changes of clothing. My Grandmother rarely owned more than four dresses at any one time. The newest one for church and special occasions. The next older one is for going out in public, such as visiting and going to town. The next older one for everyday wear. (and I mean every day, the same dress.) The very oldest one, oft mended and patched, for doing dirty work. The house I live in now, built in 1920, originally had a total of only four electric sockets. Nobody thought someone would have enough appliances to need more. My point here is that many people like my grandparents didn’t feel much difference once the Depression hit because they didn’t have much to lose. They were accustomed to a life that we consider austerity. Modern Americans are more spoiled than they think. $8 a gallon for gas is no big deal when you don’t own a car and never did and only dreamed you ever would. (Barbara)
- I think it will be a different type of depression than it was back in the 30’s. People were closer to the earth and didn’t count on the government as much. They also “networked” alot and used barter with friends and neighbors even in the good times before the depression. This is one thing I have been working on myself. (Woodnick)
- Zero DEBT!!! (George)
- I would consider every purchase NOW in light of how it would be viewed if LATER we were in a Depression. For instance, would your child benefit more from a pocket knife or a new video game? A book or a plastic toy? An emergency radio that doubles as an MP3 player or an iPod? Buy things of quality, too. I would replace things now that you can. (Katy)
- I think learning skills to survive a depression and teaching those skills to your children is important. My daughter can knit, sew, and crochet better than I can. In fact, my son can sew better than I can. We homeschool, so we have lots of books, including stockpiled curriculum for grades my children have not yet reached (in case we can’t afford to buy a math textbook then). Textbooks get low priority compared with food. I guess I am looking at a scenario where life is likely to get much harder and everything but food and shelter is considered a luxury. (Katy)
- You get comfortable with populations shifting around, little or nothing in the way of government public services, and surviving without a job. You get used to using absolutely every part of everything you have. You “fix it up, wear it out, make it do or do without.” You learn how to plant and harvest and butcher and shoot. (Sunshine)
- For a large-scale long-term Depression, I’d continue to store food and basic necessities as there may come a time when we have to completely rely on them. However, if there is no telling how long it would last, then money and storage would eventually run out. I have written about coming up with a personal economic crash plan to fall back on if or when a worst-case scenario happens. Not pretty to think about, but it may have to include moving in with family to pool resources, selling off belongings, possible bartering, etc. The main thing is survival and learning to live on less now. Imaging the worst-case scenario would help in preparing and not being in a state of shock if it happens. (Bernie)
- Lately, every time I shop and buy something, I ask myself, “What would I do if I couldn’t buy this thing? How would I make do ?” It’s really made me think and has caused me to stockpile some items I hadn’t previously thought about, like repair supplies for water hoses and shoes and iron-on repair patches for clothes. Sometimes, I’ve gone to the internet and printed off recipes for homemade cleaning products, vinegar, fruit pectin, and instructions for darning socks, making paper and homemade ink and glue, etc. I don’t have time to learn to do all that stuff right now, but I want that info in my survival notebook for later, just in case. (Linda)
- My mother will soon be 88. She was young during the depression. She said there wasn’t a change in their living standard. They lived in a rural area on a working farm. If they didn’t raise it or make it, they didn’t need it. They never had much to begin with, and when the depression began, they couldn’t tell any difference. I suppose somewhere in that story is our lesson. I am afraid that we may have lost enough of our morals and skills and have grown so used to our creature comforts that perhaps a depression could be much harder on us than the last one . . . much harder. (Reggie)
- I advise stocking up on tools and tools and more tools. Especially consumable tools. A bow saw with a dozen extra blades. Extra drill bits. My cordless 14.4 drill is going on 12 years. I advise a solar panel for recharging. If you have the motivation, tools will help you tremendously in building what you need. I think that there will be an abundance of emptied structures to strip for raw materials. We will be pulling screws and nails from buildings. Every one will have value. But stocking up on extra boxes now is not a bad idea. (Sierra D.)
- We are concentrating on learning skills to survive a depression. This year we are learning to save seed from our garden produce. I learned to knit this summer and have gotten some yarn on clearance from different places. I just watched videos on how to make tallow candles and pemmican….we have never saved the tallow from the deer and elk that the boys harvest each fall…now we will! Hopefully, the skills we learn will help fill in the needs as they arise as times get harder. (Sheri)
- I think we’ll be seeing high prices and scarce commodities (if only because fleets will be grounded for lack of fuel or too-high fuel costs) and an actual lack of petroleum-based products like gas, plastics, and rubber. So one thing we’re doing is stocking up on spare tires for our biodiesel vehicles and bicycles, tire patching kits, plastic bags, etc. – anything made from petroleum that we think we need during a major transition to a different lifestyle. Oh – and fabric, thread, needles (besides food & seed). (Mary)
- This is why I’m learning skills: gardening, animal husbandry, repair, crafting (practical things like knitting socks), cob building, and the like. I think if you already know how to do these things, it will be much easier to make the transition. (Herbwifemama)
- My mom lived in a NYC tenement during the depression, and it was pretty bad. She said the only time she got enough to eat was when they went to my great-aunt’s farm in the summer to work. Sickness was everywhere and you couldn’t afford medicines. My grandmother lost her hearing due to ear infections. All my mother’s teeth were cracked and broken due to poor nutrition and illness. (Vicki O.)
- My parents both lived through the depression before they married. My father, at times, nearly starved and worked at any job he could find. My mother’s family owned a farm and always had food. They didn’t have extra money and were very frugal, but they were able to eat well. I think preparations must include knowledge….how to grow food, both animal and vegetable. (Bernadine)
- Practical, hands-on knowledge is, by far, the best thing we can do for ourselves. What good is an emergency seed bank if we don’t have the proper soil for it and don’t know what to plant when? How do you can your produce and meat over a campfire? Do you know the medicinal properties of the common herbs we use for cooking? (I didn’t know that Thyme tea is excellent for upper respiratory problems–specifically the ears!) What about hunting without a gun? Butchering what you’ve managed to kill? Get past the squeamishness and learn how while there is time to make the necessary mistakes along that learning curve. (Patty)
- Has anyone thought of blacksmithing? Back in the day, every village had a blacksmith. I figure we’d need at least one skilled blacksmith for every few hundred people. (Chandra)
- Interestingly enough, I had a grandmother and mother who lived through the Great Depression with lots of info! My grandmother lived on a farm, worked hard, lived frugally, and wasted nothing ( even cooking water went back to water the gardens…and amazing gardens she had!). She reused paper towels and foil later on in life, composted, and never bought anything without purpose ( big lesson there!). She spoke of hard times but not starvation. My mother grew up in New York City and painted quite a different picture: standing in food lines for bread every week, no heat or electricity ( too expensive), cooking potato soup on a potbelly stove, clothing from the Salvation Army, quitting school at nine years old to work in a pencil factory for food for her family, getting Christmas presents from the local church ( one gift, a wooden cradle, her father promptly broke up and burned to keep his children warm…heartbreaking). While hard times are ahead, I think the standard of living is so different now that we have many ways to downgrade and still live very well. It goes back to living intentionally, shopping with purpose, and planning ahead. We do need to learn to provide for ourselves and learn long-lost skills should our modern conveniences ne’er return. We also must return to forming communities, getting to know our neighbors beyond a wave of hello at the mailbox as we hurry inside. (Doctorb)
- I used to have a class in a large city teaching people skills and urging them to make the move to the country. We had a very interesting large panel discussion on the depression. We invited people who had lived thru the depression and could relate stories of what they went thru. I’m glad we filmed it (quite amateur but a good record). It was fascinating! One consistent thing was that those who had lived in the country had gardens and lived like “kings and queens” compared to those who lived in the cities. They often said that as children, they didn’t know they had it bad. They ate well, played outdoors with siblings, cousins, etc. People in the cities often went hungry, stood in bread lines, and made meals out of the most meager ingredients. (Jan D.)

2023.03.28 20:24 __0_k__ Suing My Landlord Over Not Returning My Security Deposit
I am in the midst of creating a suit against my former landlord who will not return my deposit of $1200 for an apartment I rented from 2017-2022, and am looking for some guidance on how to end this dispute. Because I fulfilled everything that is required of me as a renter, under the Michigan Landlord Tenant Act, I firmly believe that she is required to pay back these funds.
Some facts to consider:
- Landlord asked me to re-sign a 12 mo. lease agreement in March 2022. I did not return a signed lease agreement for 22-23 because I was looking to purchase a new home at the time. Despite paying rent through June, I ended up forgetting about the lease agreement, and so did the landlord. From what I understand, I was renting outside of a contract.
- On June 10th, we found out our offer on a home had been accepted and I prompty gave my landlord notice that we'd be vacating in 30 days.
- Prior to leaving, I thoroughly cleaned the apartment, leaving it in better condition than when I found it.
- When I left the apartment on July 15th, the Landlord did not conduct a final walkthrough in person, nor did she provide me a list of things to fix after the fact. I did provide her with our new address in a timely manner.
- When I asked about returning my prorated rent and deposit a month later, she said that she was "keeping my security deposit because she had to pay a realtor to fill the unit I had vacated."
Upset about this, I asked her a couple of times to return the deposit citing Michigan Landlord Tenant act, garnering coached responses. I finally filed a suit against her in our local small claims court, which she asked to have dismissed because I filed the suit against her, not the LLC which she operated under; I understand that LLC's cannot be sued.
I feel that because I was renting outside of a contract (she will not be able to produce a signed contract for last year unless she forges my signature
), and because her reasoning for withholding the deposit isn't covered by Michigan law, I should be able to file suit - I just need to know how to do it.
Do I have a case? How do I go about filing this if I do? I would sincerely appreciate some guidance on this if you have a sense as to what angle I ought to take.

2023.03.28 20:24 bigjoerona Deleting social media changed my life - 2 years later
I've posted my story on this page after 6 months and 12 months before and had a really positive response, so some of you might be interested in my 2 year report.
My life is unrecognisable now to the life I had 2 years ago. I am in a great and steady relationship, I have started a good career, I exercise 6 times a week (marathon next week!!!), I've started playing a sport, I read daily, I study Spanish and I still balance a social life and crap Netflix shows and putting the bins out on a Tuesday.
The life I live now is one I would have dreamed of 2 years ago. I have always wanted more discipline, more motivation and more sticktoitiveness but no matter what I tried I would always fall back into old habits.
I was motivated to delete my social media because I felt like my usage was denying me of something. Apart from time, I wasn't quite sure what I felt like I was missing. But I realised I was falling behind. I wasn't exercising, my mental health was in bits, I had a job I didn't like and I had no goals.
I got anxious about deleting my social media because I felt like I would fall off the face of the earth. I felt like everyone would forget me and I would become a recluse. This anxiety made me put off the decision to delete it for a long time, but eventually, in February 2021 I got rid.
The first month was amazing, I had clarity of thought for the first time in a while, and I felt like I had waaaay more free time. I also felt accomplished that I managed to take the plunge into deleting it and that sense of accomplishment made the first month awesome.
During the second and third months, things became complicated. For so long social media had been a form of escapism for me. I would quite literally numb my brain with content whenever it felt bad. I would scroll to forget a bad day, scroll to reduce the anxiety of an upcoming test and scroll to ignore the feelings of loneliness.
Taking away my self-medicated scrolling meant that for the first time in... well forever, I had to confront these discomforts head-on. I had to endure the discomfort of being bored, the agony of being lonely and the emptiness of a bad day at work.
Being forced to confront these unpleasant feelings became a motivation for tackling them. My brain didn't want to feel bad, so it found ways to cope with it. It started to find exercise rewarding, and it started to value and appreciate hard work. The things that I was unable to stick to for so long, I was now drawn to. My brain craved the dopamine release of social media, but since it couldn't get that it replaced it with the dopamine release of socialising, and exercising, and reading and trying new things.
Over time, these benefits had compounding interest and my self-improvement progress skyrocketed. The best part is, I am 2 years into this journey and I don't feel like I'm slowing down. I cannot wait to report back next year.

2023.03.28 20:24 lionheart07 What do you buy when you have a lot of money?
In sims 3 I would buy cars or property.
My sim and ger daughter just moved into a renovated apartment (5k rent) so space is limited. I would like to stay in the apartment for the new generation so I'm looking for suggestions other than a bigger house
