    I was having a dream about some kind of poltergeist or phantom or ghost ravaging my city, and during a city hall meeting about the issue, the apparition lifted the speaker into the air... and then I woke up. When I tried to lift my head, a hand made of shadows (the best way I can describe it, it was also the way the ghost from my dream looked) came out of the corner of my vision and started choking me. I was completely paralysed and unable to scream for help. It lasted for about 10 seconds. After spending about an hour curled up in a ball on the couch, I tried to go back to bed. I was repeatedly awakened by the perception that my bed was shaking.

    Oh, dude. Let an old man of the internet tell you how this shit works.

    All I can see of your self-posts is you got bullied in high school and you feel too self-conscious to make a move on a girl when you're on a date. Same here. Welcome to 20.

    Number one is, unless you're a complete waste of air (and I can tell by your ability to string three sentences together that ain't the case) *things get easier*. You're like one of those adolescent male lions on the savanna, bit of tuft around the ears, your balls have just begun to jut out and you have this urge to spray all over the nearest acacia bush, but you're too scared you're going to fuck up and get your heart stomped on by some fine lookin' gazelle.

    The second point is, you have all the time in the world. Girls like older guys ... not all of them, but enough to go around. I'm not talking the Hef here, I mean five, ten, fifteen years older (plenty of girls in their thirties dating men in their late forties). Older guys have got charm, confidence and a clue. It's just shit you pick up over the years. So, you're back on that savanna a bit later on, got one of them big ole manes, nuts hanging out like a pair of furry baseballs, looking dangerous ... and the gazelles are going, Hey, that lion looks like he knows what's what. Shit, if I'm going to get eaten anyway it might as well be by someone who knows what he's doing.

    Third point is you understand things get easier and you've got time, wow, suddenly all the pressure's off! Now you can talk to women without sounding like you've already made your mind up that they're going to destroy you in advance. This means, if you go out on a date with someone, you can talk shit with them, be funny, just like they're one of the guys (albeit with boobies), be relaxed - chicks fucking *love* relaxed, have a great time, say at the end, Hey, we had a good night? They hopefully say yes. You follow up with, Would you mind if give you a tiny little kiss goodnight? with a cheeky smile. If they say yes, smooch on, be a gentleman; if they say no, then say, **No big thing**, walk away, you know why? Because you're going to be a big-arse Lord of the Savanna one day real soon and that savanna's just *crawling* with juicy gazelle, that's why it's no big thing. Sometimes you're right and she's right but it's not the right time, shit like that. A smart lion smiles and nods and goes to hunt something else, because that's what lions do.

    It's not easy to begin with, and you get knockbacks, but the sooner you start the sooner you get good at being charming and confident without straying into the Land of Douchebaggery (getting fit and dedicating part of your life to getting good at something helps). I wish someone told me this shit when I was 20, so if any of you bozos have got a time machine, PM me.

    yah i totally understand what you're saying, and it is currently really unbalanced when you consider the stress of importance placed one one sex opposed to the other. But i say read this book because its interesting to see a woman take an acctive and open step in the acknowledging and empowering of women enjoying the man, not just like a sex object...not the false empowerment in crap series like sex and the city. That extreme objectification is not healthy and as the saying goes, two wrongs don't make a right. But this book i think is a healthy example of this balance and sexually assertiveness you talked about, like its a step to expressing it on both sides. because it gives a more, poetic approach to the topic of comparing the visual love of men to women. basically its like...hey stop treating the women so violently in media, boys have beauty too, and there is a rich history of their sexuality being celebrated in a healthy way. Which is a good start because it makes the reader see how the same attitude should start being applied to women, and that women have a job in trying to balance the system out as well.

    People with depression and anxiety problems often need an advocate. A person to help them get treatment. When you're depressed, it's hard, sometimes almost impossible to talk with people about it especially strangers. Even making phone calls. Some days, it may be impossible to even get out of bed. If you're up to it, see if you can be her advocate. Help by making calls to get appointments set up and getting to appointments and with getting her medication. Just by making a few phone calls and giving her a few rides could really make all the difference.

    As I see it, you have two routes: confront, or persuade. You already know which way confrontation will lead; shocked parents, possibly police, mental institutes. That leaves persuasion as the only method of addressing this without uprooting all of your lives.

    As such, first and foremost, you will need to accept that neither you nor anyone except your sister have the right to order her remain clothed, no more than you have the right to order her to strip her clothes off. This is the bitterest pill to swallow, but once you accept that, you can clear your head and set yourself properly to the task. I'm not asking you to -approve-, just to -understand-. If she recognizes that you're treating her as an adult, and letting her accept responsibility for her own actions, she'll be less likely to dig in her heels and more willing to listen to what you have to say.

    However, you need to be sure of what you want to say, how you want to say it, and what you are ACTUALLY saying when you do. The last is the most important part, because if your sister is like most sixteen-year-olds (and from the sounds of it, she is), she won't pick up some of the subtler stuff, and you'll have to point it out explicitly.

    For example, she wants to be treated as an adult (if not exactly in the healthiest way), and by talking to her instead of your parents, you are saying "Yes, I recognize your wish, and I will treat you as an adult who is responsible for her own actions." One talks to the parents of a child; one talks directly to an adult.

    As for the method of making contact on the issue, you're going to have to use your best judgment of how she'll react, and what message you want to send (especially since you may have to explicitly point out that message when talking to her later). One option would be to post to the forum and (if possible) include a comment that would seem innocuous to others, but one she would recognize and identify you from; the message here is "I am not clean, you are not clean." It takes the bite out from under the "pervert" argument, connects you, and places you both on a similar level (i.e. you're not preaching from the heights, not talking -down- to her, but talking -to- her as someone else who has turned to the Internet to fulfill adult urges.)

    Unfortunately, there's another message with that method, "the Internet is global, but 'home' is still part of the globe". If your post lets her successfully identify you, there is a chance that the realization of how close to home it hit (and speculation about who else she knows IRL might have seen it) may cause her to panic, and panicked people do stupid things...and sometimes self-destructive things.

    This is where your judgment comes in. If there is a plausible chance she may hurt herself before coming to talk to you, you should strongly consider addressing her in person first. The advantage is that you may be able to prevent her from injuring herself if this does push her over the breaking point; at the same time, it removes an element of power and initiative from her that can help her take responsibility for her own actions. By letting her know that you know, in a method that lets her take the next step, you are reaffirming that you consider her an adult and hoped that she'd respond as such.

    Finally, decide what you hope to accomplish by speaking to her. Getting her to stop doing it for the sake of simply stopping her from doing it will likely be counterproductive. There is no familial, legal, or moral authority you can bring to bear on her without diminishing her, without making her less important to you than that authority.

    Rather than making "stop posting nudie pics on the net" the goal, it's better to make that the means to an end.

    One example is to point out that if you found out about it, there's always a chance that someone else who knows you and your family might stumble upon it...and odds are much more likely that someone else will go to your parents, throwing all your lives into chaos, including hers, which as you've said, is finally turning around. (A far, far less likely, but much more devastating possibility is that said finder uses this knowledge for blackmail....). The longer she continues this, the more likely it is to explode in her face. How can this be prevented? Given her age, "coming out" and breaking the news herself is not an option, but going on hiatus until she's 18 certainly is (and maybe she won't be interested in doing that once she gets to 18). Thus, suspending her posting is a means to the end of preserving her family life.

    Another example, it was recently demonstrated how people who think they are relatively anonymous on the Internet can be tracked down anyways...look at those cat-abusing kids in Texas. It's not impossible that someone who's been following her posts might eventually gather enough information to put a name and address to her face. Being -careful- can help, but it's likely that it will only slow the process of additional information leaking out. The safe way to make and publish such photos would be to make arrangements with a legitimate studio that handles amateur porn. They won't take her until she's 18, so she'd have to wait. She might give up the notion before she's 18, and if she doesn't, you'd be encouraging behavior you'd rather not encourage, but when you get down to it, dabbling a somewhat less shadier side of a shady industry is better than running the risk that someone who is both obsessive and observant runs across that forum and decides to pay a visit in person.

    Again, in both cases, the "problem" is not that she's posting these pics, but rather consequences of those actions; suspending her activities in that arena is the solution to the problem. As an added bonus, getting her to consider the future (even if it's the relatively near future of less than two years from now) may help her put this into perspective and see that this could cause problems later in life (it's funny, but those pictures of a person wearing a toga and vomiting at a frat party always seem to come up before the one of that person accepting a prestigious award when hiring companies search for information about their prospective employee...).

    Please forgive me, it's 4:00a here and I'm growing rapidly less coherent.

    Ultimately, what it comes down to is responsibility; whatever you decide to do at this point, take responsibility for your actions, or lack thereof. However this falls out, try to help your sister see that she needs to take responsibility for her own actions.

    Good luck.

    PS: I -really- don't recommend pretending you saw nothing and hoping i all goes away, unless you've always wanted a stress ulcer, in which case, that would be a fantastically easy way to get one. Or more.

    Good question. I think people are trying to read the tone of your question and figure out which side of the aisle you're on. On first read it sounds a bit like you're doubting science yourself.

    If you want to be safe on this subreddit, try something more like: "I hear a lot of jibber-jabber _from clueless creationists_ about the inconsistencies in dating fossils. Anyone here have some good facts I can use..."

    As another example of this pattern, there's a big difference in comment votes between "I think atheists go too far when..." and "_I'm an atheist_, but I think atheists go too far when...."

    People like to vote along party lines! :)

    I just subscribed to this subreddit, I have a working understanding of anarchism, (autonomous collectives with rotating terms of administrative service, or something like that) anyway yes my understanding of anarchist ideology is somewhat juvenile, but when I come to the subreddit with questions, I would think you would be happy to inform and help me understand better what you claim to believe in.

    Anyway I believe that democracy lies at the heart of any working social structure, no matter how uninformed part of the population may be. So for me to say "voting is like deciding hat color mask the person raping you is wearing" I say that may be true under the current system, but it doesn't have to be and isn't inherently true.

    and as for a manner that maximizes freedom and minimizes conflict, to what extent do you emphasize progress and justice.

    It's hard to disagree about you criticism.

    In Gardens of the Moons defence it was an old script that had many flaws in it that us fans have lovingly dubbed "GOTM'isms". But I still say that what you call "weak description" is what I would call "realistic storytelling" in that there are just a ton of references and story lines that you wont get on the first read and you're not necessarily supposed to understand. The reader is thrown right in the middle of a big unfolding story and like real historical events, which Erikson molded the series over, things don't always add up. Many of the things introduced in the first books are only beginning to come clear now, 8 books later.

    I don't know about the characters. I thought the characters were both very human and very different. Erikson certainly does not care about the fantasy clichés of the farm boy and the evil dark lord. Maybe it is also easier to look at those characters in the rose tinted glasses of one who's seen the characters blossom, grow and often die horribly in the later books.

    But like you said, the series takes a large leap forward in the next two books. If you read Deadhouse Gates and Memories of Ice and don't become hooked I would be surprised.

    I consider composition as a creative search in the space of all possible songs. I assumed from your dial interface that you shared this point of view.

    As you say intensity, hardness and loudness are all dimensions of human perception, they cannot be measured in the data without a well developed model of human perception (and one that doesn't exist yet, even for loudness).

    A feedback system requiring someone to listen to a whole song before requiring feedback is not real time! That's as off-line as it gets, surely.

    Yes people and machines form part of creative systems, I think the argument is whether Cope's system is a creative agent. I say no, because it can't perceive what it makes and can't modify itself in response. Hardly an agent at all. We agree it's a part of a creative system, but I say it's a small, disembodied, relatively uninteresting (to me) part.

    > Why do you think people lie and cheat and try to earn tons of money and climb to power?

    Greed. Desire. Search for recognition or validation or happiness. Entertainment. Psychological complexes. There are many reasons people do things that don't involve being anxiety ridden.

    Bureaucracy? They create departments in response to some need. Then a few years later they decide to throw a few smaller departments under a new level of leadership. Maybe they think it will allow waste reduction or something, though it hardly works that way. What was one of the first thing they did after 9/11? Create the Dept of Home Land Security. Another layer of bureaucracy that does nothing of value. They get mired in it because they have to go through all the different levels to do anything "properly".

    Corruption? I come up to you and offer to buy you a house if you give my company that government contract. Is it your fear of not owning a new house that makes you accept? No! It's a free freakin house!

    You say you don't know anyone who isn't compromised by fear? Somehow I find that hard to believe, but I don't know who you hang out with. Politician wise though, I'm eager to hear you list a few of them and the compromising fear moments. That's exactly the kind of real backing your argument needs.

    As a girl whose long distance bf has pretty much just broken up with me (it'll be official after we meet up to talk in a couple of days), it sucks. I've been away overseas for 5 weeks and I get back, my bf is busy with other stuff which I know he cannot help. Then he msgs me saying he wants to break up and I have a pretty strong feeling that he's met another girl. i dont know who initiated it, but she must know that he had a gf so to know that she flirted with him anyway sucks. I think its only common decency to end things before even flirting. It's like he waited until there was someone else he could go to, which guts me even more

    You don't need to have a lot of time to be better than that guy at the game. I honestly couldn't believe it at first when he said he was too *scared* to get the berserker through the third door. He's complaining about a game that he really shouldn't be playing. The changes he's asking for would fundamentally change the game itself, and that's not something he, as the customer, and moreover as a customer of the "tourist" demographic you describe, has the right to ask a company whose target audience is the people who actually appreciate the game the way it is. He's like a morbidly obese child complaining that everyone else gets to run faster than him, and insisting that they all waddle along at his pace for the sake of "fairness", rather than dealing with his own problem.

    My advice, if you really want to finish your games, put some effort into them. Use what little time you do have to learn the ropes, and play through them little by little. I don't think a magic skip button should ever be included. Its mere existence ruins the experience, in my opinion. If a level frustrates you, why bother getting better at it if you can just skip it? "Huh, there's a bunch of stairs here I have to climb. But fuck that, that's hard! I'm just going to take the escalator to the left!" The entire point is to progress your skills, not to watch the game unfold like a movie. At least, this is the case in the games this guy would bother complaining about.

    Alcohol DOES. Alcohol withdrawal can kill you. Seriously. It's the only recreational drug that CAN kill you by its sudden absence. Smokers snarl at people. Junkies, being the total pussies that they are, whine about throwing up and pooping their pants during withdrawal. Detoxing crackheads just suck. But metabolically-dependent drinkers (the guys who wake up with the shakes and drink a bottle of whiskey AND a case of beer every day) can actually die from going cold turkey.

    The few, the proud, the professional alcoholics.
