This reflects my own experiences:
'I wish I could say speaking out or up is easy, but it’s not, especially when you find yourself the only one having a particular experience or understanding of an experience. It can be exhausting and often isolating, even (…actually…especially) if people support your message from a distance but do little to nothing to work alongside you; if they want you to be the “first domino” but refuse to ever fall themselves.'
mass shootings, US, politics Show more
I think its very important to point out that a history of mental illness is not a common thread between mass shooters, a history of violence towards others is. There also was no common political or religious belief system between the majority of mass shooters. They were mostly violent angry white men with a history of violent behavior prior to the shootings.

Most shooters are white, male and between the ages of 11-40. Majority of mass shootings happened in states like TX, FL and AL, places with lax gun laws. Most shootings happened at schools, restaurants or hotels. Most shooters committed suicide at the scene. The majority of the guns were obtained legally. Majority of shooters had a history of domestic violence.
I made a shit ton of dark chocolate lingon berry truffles for #valentinesday
Chocolate ganache flavored with vanilla and lingon berry syrup surrounded by tempered dark chocolate. Took 2 days to complete them all, around 72 truffles.
Lingon berry has an interesting taste, almost like dark cherry and cranberry mixed with raspberry.
Some more *haiku I have written:
Standing on the beach
Red setting sun, fog rolls in
The black waves are peaceful
The phone rings again
I panic and then answer
You are not dead yet
Calling out for me
We talk about you...
Typing on keyboards
A comforting sound to hear
Souls sharing themselves
*haiku is a type of poetry originating in Japan that consists of 3 lines, the first is 5 syllables, second is 7 syllables and 3rd is again 5 syllables. I have more here: https://ptpb.pw/~meskarune-haiku
That feeling when all your clothes are black and you can't find that one specific black item in the pile of clean clothes.
@bea tripwire and snort are some examples of software, and there is a Linux kermel module for intrusion detection, and there are tons of programs for analyzing logs and file changes, but what you use depends on what you are trying to protect.
A lot of men are making posts online about how the #metoo movement has made them feel uncomfortable to be alone with women because they don't want to get "falsely accused".
Women have been _afraid_ to be alone with men for thousands of years, and they are afraid of being **raped, assaulted or murdered**
Women's safety is more important than your ability to feel comfortable
Tart: baked dish consisting of a filling over a shortcrust pastry base with an open top. The filling may be sweet or savory. The categories of 'tart', 'flan', 'quiche', and 'pie' overlap, with no sharp distinctions
Torte: rich, usually multilayered, cake that is filled with whipped cream, buttercream, mousse, jam, nuts, or fruit. It is generally glazed
Pie: baked dish that contains a filling, savory or sweet. The crust can be made of shortcrust pastry, crumbs, quick bread, yeast bread or mashed potatoes
I made a ricotta blue berry tart with a short bread cookie crust. The ricotta filling is flavored with honey and fresh ground cardamom. The short bread crust came out perfect. I used this receipe: http://www.canadianliving.com/food/baking-and-desserts/recipe/basic-shortbread-cookie-dough
Someone asked me what the difference is between tarts and pies, and I am not entirely sure, except that maybe tarts have a thicker crust and they are thinner?
NSFW, circumcision Show more
In a discussion someone was pointing out the changes that happen a penis when they are circumcised. Apparently they callous and lose sensitivity. Pics at the link.
Not being a dick wielder I can't speak from personal experience, but the pics are pretty compelling.
