Love Bo Burnham, I was definitely personally attacked by his White Woman Instagram though.

I mean bad dog trainers most definitely exist, and it's very widely understood now that causing pain or even just discomfort are terrible ways of reinforcing learning (in dogs and people).

Bad bot. Don't encourage anyone to make that!

Google image search shows this was on Reddit as early as 2012, and has already been on BuzzFeed and BoredPanda. It's almost a legacy post at this point.

Can you not use the intelligence tab to find out where it's coming from?

Can I ask are you counting calories every day? If so, are you sure this is helpful for you?

I'm not certain you actually understood what I was saying there. The biological drive to reproduce is only one very small part of a very complex problem, and isn't anything to do with what I said.

FO [FO] Kit from Dimensions. Purchased to practice back stitching, but kinda grew to love it as I was stitching.

I'm not for a second trying to imply that adoption isn't a good thing or that those children don't deserve parents, just that adoption is not an equivalent act to making children.

I'd argue the children destined for a difficult life are the victims of systems, not of people choosing to have biological children. If systems were changed to make adoption a more fair and less traumatising process for the children then definitely more people would adopt. As it stand the rights of the birth mother are protected to such an extent that by the time a child is available for adoption this harm has already been done. I don't know how this might be fixed, as the alternative would potentially be children being separated too soon from families that would eventually have been able to protect them. It's... Not simple.

No. Adoption is not some saintly alternative to conceiving a baby, and this fallacy is really unhelpful.

The awful reality is that the majority of children up for adoption are not up for adoption because everything was OK. Babies who are perfectly healthy are definitely not readily put up for adoption (in lots of countries babies aren't out up for adoption period), it's mostly children who have experienced significant trauma, have additional support needs or have been damaged by being exposed to substances in the womb and after. Or you could always go abroad and risk getting a kid who has been stolen from a loving but less wealthy family.

The decision to adopt is really different to deciding to have a baby, it's probably going to affect your life in a very different way.

The cost element is also real, we are talking £15,000+ in some circumstances. That's before buying anything for the kid. That's not a normal outlay for a kid.

It's a picture from a seatbelt safety campaign, so, no I think Ben Runns name is not a coincidence, and I definitely don't think the police tweeted from his phone.

I almost wonder if the prisoner side tables to the right are too close together. It doesn't specify there needs to be any distance, but something in the AI might not think they can work like that?

He recently contributed to the bitcoin price falling, and has been drawing attention to the fact that he wants to "cure" autism. Those are the Reddit crowd specific problems.

He also threatened to fire people who didn't risk their lives and families to work in his factories in a pandemic, and slanders nice people on twitter for the LOL's.

Guy was gonna get outed as a villain eventually.

Did you reply with this as a joke because of the other post referencing it on this sub or was it a coincidence?

I just looked this up on YouTube out of curiosity. There is no way these people should be having babies, I don't think I would trust them with goldfish.

They seem to be timing sex after ovulation at least, so hopefully they won't get pregnant any time soon.

My hope fortress varies month to month, but after passing the 12 cycle mark it's more like a little hope treehouse. It's not well put together and doesn't take a lot to fall down, but it also isn't devestating when it does ultimately fall.

My husband is the exact opposite, started this saying it could take a long time so, where I used to cry every CD1 he would seem very OK. Now his hope fortress seems to be intensifying each cycle, which is even more bizarre as we get more and more bad news from testing.

I play my prisons on prison architect Scandinavian style. I aim to make just enough to get by, then spend as much as I can on reform, the best possible food, the nicest possible cells. My personal goal is to have a crazy low reoffending rate. It makes me happy.

When I play the Sims however I am an absolute psychopath. Slave people in basements and pools with no ladders, among other things...

While I am in real life pro prison reform, I am not in real life a crazy psychopath who locks people in basements and drowns them in pools. Your play style does not have to reflect real life.

I've worked with rape survivors. Their lives have actually been devestated. If they could trade and have 6months in jail and a "mediocre" life, a lot of those people would.
