Agreed.

They look more realistically human. But also incredibly generic. Like everything, now…

Yeah, milk-based shit is extremely common in Japan, now, too…

Like, Yakult, anyone..??

I admittedly don’t know as much about China though.

But these are clearly Asian-Americans, anyway. They’re gonna drink milk and eat cereal, lol…

Oh and also, shouldn’t the two girls (on bottom) at least look somewhat similar…

Yeah, yeah, fraternal triplets and such, but I mean, come on

The top three somewhat resemble actual children, i.e. they at least look “child-like”.

The bottom three do not. They look like adults. Or late teens. Especially middle girl.

Which is appropriate, I guess, given current era’s trend of erasing childhood innocence and such…

As I wrote these replies out, my Uni just contacted me to say that I have been approved for re-enrolment...

This is a massive, life-changing thing, for me. It's hope, and it's an opportunity to start over. I needed that. I absolutely needed this more than almost anything, right now.

So... It's not "over". I just have to turn things around. This gives me the chance to do that.

I haven't been able to sleep for months, worrying over whether they would approve this, so thank the fucking fuck, this is pretty immense.

I guess this shouldn't be such an "identity defining" thing, but man, just the sweet relief of being given a lifeline here is something that is hard to explain, I think.

Now I have to make the most of this chance, of course.

Now, onto the rest:

I understand. But look man, your mind loves to play tricks on you. People have lived in misery that was unimaginable for you and me, and yet they persevered - even when there was no prospect of things getting better because they were medieval peasants. Modernity makes people sick.

Yes, I know this. It's just that my life is... Not just "not where I would want it to be", but objectively in a worse place than almost literally everyone I know... To the point of embarrassment and shame. Which has led me to become isolated. Which obviously makes things worse... I am trying to turn this around, but it's actually much harder than even I likely imagined it would be. Possible? Yes, but much easier said than done...

As for the mind bit: Funnily enough, I recently tried an SSRI. It just made me worse, and also sick and weak. So... While brain chemistry of course plays a part in this, as does perception - when your life is a mess, unfortunately none of that shit is going to make much difference, I would say...

But anyway, I'm trying to fix as much as I can.

The best thing about a terrible situation is that it can only get better. I say go to the gym daily until it does.

I literally can't afford the gym right now, lol. And it's fairly pointless getting a new membership until I move cities again (soon, hopefully). But yeah. I just run. And sometimes ride. That's my equivalent, I guess.

Wait, what? Mandates in Australia? Don't you guys have employee protection/privacy laws preventing that sort of thing?

Assuming this is not sarcastic... Australians will love to tell you that we have "strong employee protection laws" and no "at will employment" here, but... From extensive experience, it really isn't that simple.

I, unfortunately, have only ever been employed either on a contract, or casually. Thus, while my hourly rate is technically higher than the full-time equivalent, you lack any of these protections. So it's incredibly easy to sack me with very little recourse on my part. I knew that even before Covid, and Covid only made that even clearer...

But I also know more "permanent" employees in my "industry" of the time (the Australian Public Service), who were also let go, when mandates came in.

You'll find that "employee protection" and "privacy" laws only apply, in Australia, when it's convenient for TPTB. In this case, everyone with power was on the side of "enforcing mandates", so therefore those laws were largely made moot. The courts wouldn't support workers. The Human Rights Commission ignored it. Etc.

It really just shows you how weak those laws are, in a place like this, in reality.

So yeah, I'm afraid that's just not how it panned out. Many big businesses do still in fact have those mandates, even after they have been officially dropped. Pretty sure I lied on my last job application about it, even, so that will be interesting, if it comes up at interview...

For the guy who deleted his comment, yep, I would say "he", too, but I've deliberately left the headline/s as is.

Oh, and the song is "Throat Goat", like, as in "Greatest of All Time" (yes, really. A la Tom Brady or Nole Djokovic or whatever), but also yes, goat noises...

Eugh...

Yup. Still looked to be going pretty strong, actually!

Even Smokey Robinson was still up there and (barely) performing, lol.

They wheeled them all out of the retirement home! 😂

Sauce? I’m pretty sure the ones with the big tits (except Petras, lol) were not. I’ve seen photos of the lot of them together before the performance, so…

I doubt that.

*”Nonbinary”, gay, fat British cuckold, specifically… 😛

A nightmare human, frankly.

A fucking freak show. Like, I actually don’t even think he’ll be alive in a decade, at this rate…

He’s clearly losing touch with reality…

Hence the whole “non-binary” shit. Also for attention. Probably mostly that, frankly.

bamboozler1 2 points ago +2 / -0

Yeah, this is the point I was going to make:

This was all intentionally misleading, from the start

Just wait until the next time they decide to pull something like this. They’ve had the practice. They know how to go even harder next time…

Places that voted back in their incumbent “lockdown-happy” governments, or lurched to the left, are fucked

I really wish your last sentence were true…

Does feel somewhat “nice” to be vindicated about some of this stuff, though, I guess

Watching my old employer drop mandates and beg us all to come back - that’s something, at least.

But… It’s just not as simple as that. I wish it was.

Just gotta keep going and hope it eventually gets a tiny bit better, I suppose.

The ones with the long hair (a la The Ring) are men.The one in the cage is a tranny. The rest, from what I could see, are, uhh, actual women...

So yeah. It's about as bad as you thought, lol.

Also, sex women..??

I must say, terrible as this was, Stevie Wonder and Chris Stapleton absolutely bossed it, earlier in the night…

Like, it was actually fucking great. 👌

So at least there’s that, I guess!

Tbf, I grew up in a pretty secular household, on the other side of the world, and I didn’t know what a drag queen was either…

A much, much more innocent time (I don’t know how old you are, but)…

I honestly don’t think I would have coped if I grew up in this era…

Not that I coped anyway, but everything is so much weirder and more… Confusing now. And it’s only been like a decade.

Laughs in Australian Our Indigenous make Native Americans look like the peak of civilization, by comparison…

And yet, the left insists on some vague “equivalence” between all “Indigenous” peoples, smh…

You know the only “unique” thing about this..?

That it’s a dude. Usually these sort of “mixed” Indige-grifters are women, at least in Aus…

Though he certainly isn’t the first half-Muslim (country) “Indigenous” person I have heard of…

I personally feel that, sigh, if I were an actor, I probably wouldn’t be comfortable taking “gay parts”…

But I guess it is acting

But nah, even in “current era”, I would just be too uncomfortable to portray it convincingly, Ron Swanson or no…

But that’s just me I guess.

We’ve normalized mental illness, and called it “stunning and brave”. This is the end result…

These people have no shame. That is obvious, lol…

bamboozler1 10 points ago +10 / -0

You know, nor do I…

Like, as others have pointed out, there’s a clear push here…

What I don’t understand is why “normies” just rolled over and accepted that, and now clap along like seals at how “stunning and brave” this shit is…

People I know irl are like that. I truly don’t understand.

It’s a dealbreaker, for me, with women (not that it comes up that often, thank fuck) - it’s surprising quite how many of them love le drag…

It’s even gotten to the point now where other straight men that I know will go along to drag performances, with or without their girlfriends… Mostly for a good virtue signal (I hope)…

Though honestly, if you’re choosing to go to these things specifically, are you really straight..? 🤔
