Dear parent, I am not your insurance policy

2022.01.21 01:39 ZeroPauper Dear parent, I am not your insurance policy

Dear parent, I am not your retirement plan.
Dear parent, my siblings are not insurance plans for me to share the burden of your retirement.
Dear parent, the notion of churning kids out to serve as farmhands might have been a valid survival strategy in the past, but it no longer applies in today’s modern world.
Dear parent, I don’t remember ever feeling an ounce of love, care or concern from you.
Dear parent, you might have provided the basic necessities such as food, shelter and education, but can you think of any other thing you have provided? Things that make you more of a parent and less of a caregiver?
Dear parent, I do not think you can name any, for that we were never close as a family. I don’t remember the last time we have had a meal together or a happy family outing. Our conversations were always transactional or downright hostile on your part.
Dear parent, you were absent for most of my childhood. The only memory I have of you were the relentless leather belt and metal coat hanger beatings I got that left me with countless of bruises and scars on my emotional wellbeing.
Dear parent, my success today was in spite of the emotional childhood trauma brought about by the weekly visits by police officers brough about by noise complaints from neighbours. I can still remember clear as day that there was not one day of my childhood where you weren’t shrieking and howling at the top of your lungs.
Dear parent, I have always dreaded the moment when you arrive home as it brings about the end of a peaceful day.
Dear parent, my brain has learnt to automatically filter out sounds with the wavelengths of your rude, combative and hostile manner of speaking. And for that reason, I have learnt over the years not to engage you in any form of conversation.
Dear parent, why did you have to involve your children in the ugly process of your divorce? I still vividly remember being used as a tool to claw back monies from your ex-wife against my will.
Dear parent, it is not my job to teach you how to show love and care and act like a respectable role model to your children. It is not that I have never tried, but my heartfelt words of advice to salvage whatever is left of our non-existent relationship went on deaf ears.
Dear parent, what kind of message do you think you are putting forward when you start demanding for a token amount of allowance (since you are still working) the moment I get my first pay? Let me answer this for you: It sounds like you are frantically trying to hammer the cash out button once the insurance policy has matured.
Dear parent, I do not really have a problem with giving an allowance, but I do hold a certain level of repugnance at how you demanded for it. “You must give me allowance to show appreciation”, “Think you would have been automatic, but I must tell you this for you to have a good habit”?
Dear parent, appreciation is not something to be demanded. After weighing all the positives and negatives of what is left of our parent-child relationship, I am afraid that I do not hold much appreciation for you.
Dear parent, you do not need the monies now, but nevertheless you demand for it for me to build “a good habit” of giving allowance for fear that I would not provide for you when you stop working? Sure thing, for I am your insurance policy.
Dear parent, you hounded me for your token sum of allowance because I did not give it to you on the first day of the month. Fine, I deserve it for that I am your insurance policy.
Dear parent, at your age, you choose to play around instead of settling down with your partner. Who will bear the brunt of your infidelity? Of course, for I am your insurance policy.
Dear parent, it is not my fault that you did not plan adequately for your retirement. Oh, I am sorry I forgot, I AM your retirement plan, insurance plan and also your CPF life payout plan.
Dear me, if you ever have children, do it out of love. Do it because you find joy in nurturing a young one and seeing them grow into proper adults.

2022.01.21 01:39 FrostCA11 Love Is Unconditional

“Love is unconditional.” I told my best friend as I tended to my garden with my weeding knife as we watched my very pregnant daughter leave with her catch of the week.
We heard the rev of the engine of car before dust was thrown up to the air, “She sure knows how to pick them….” Sam said.
I said nothing again instead I kept planting, my hands began to shake as Sam reached out grabbing them gently caressing them between her fingers. “Stand up for yourself…and that baby…”
“Sam I…” I went to talk but choked up, a tear escaping.
“I’ll be there tomorrow okay? I love you.” She said. I watched her get in her car and disappear and all of sudden I felt alone again.
When night came I fixed Valeria’s favorite meal garlic parmesan pasta. I figured I could finally talk to her about being more responsible and respectful tonight.
I jumped when the door suddenly opened in came Valerie, She didn’t even say hello she went straight to the bathroom only to groan.
“Valerie! Remember it’s-“
“I know! I hate this stupid trailer…” As Valerie approached me she seemed off she was very sweaty and she seemed more angry than usual.
“Baby are you okay?” I asked. Valerie shot me glare as she looked over the food on the stove.
“I can’t eat tonight…I feel sick…” she said, I reached for her and she winced grinding her teeth for a mere second as she moved out of my reach, “I gotta use the outhouse.
Dinner went untouched that night and Valeria went in and out of the outhouse all night. Despite how horrible she was being to me, I came to the realization I had to push through it. She was carrying my grandchild now they both needed me.
It was getting late and when she came in this time something was different. Valerie came in with a cigarette hanging out of her mouth, She also came in skinny…
I stood from the living room sofa, “V-Valeria did you have the baby?”
Valeria didn’t say anything her mouth was down turned as she snorted, immediately I cried out shoving her out of the way. Tears began to run down my cheeks as I darted towards the outhouse.
Once I opened up the outhouse I heard soft whimpers coming from inside of the outhouse and without a thought I reached inside. I pulled my granddaughter, Shushing her not caring about the filth.
As I left the outhouse I saw my daughter sitting on the porch smoking, I couldn’t stop crying I walked closer to her my eyes fell over to the garden as I bent over picking up the weeding knife I left behind.
“Stand up for yourself and that baby…” I repeated as I raised my knife…

2022.01.21 01:39 Cjax919 Streak 5: ¿Hay que gastar dinero en la exploración espacial? ¿Por qué o por qué no?

Si, por supuesto. Quizás hay cometas que pueden dañar mis nuevos zapatos. Tengo mucho miedo sobre esto. Si exploraremos espacio probablemente tenemos la tecnología y capacidad a explotar una cometa antes la puede dañar mis zapatos, son perfecto. Pues, la gente que viven aquí y no quiere gastar dinero en la exploración espacial simplemente tiene zapatos feos. Solo hay un explanación. Si no hay planeta, no hay zapatos nuevos.

2022.01.21 01:39 imarobotlmao Streak 18: ¿Hay que gastar dinero en la exploración espacial? ¿Por qué o por qué no?

Es claro que para mucha gente la exploración especial no es algo muy familiar en la vida cotidiana. Es un campo cuya finalidad no se entiende bien. En serio, ¿para qué se realiza la exploración espacial? No es para descubrir planetas habitables en caso de que la Tierra lo deje de ser, porque la cantidad de dinero gastada para este fin se gastará más prácticamente en conservar nuestro planeta y revertir los daños que se han cometido. Tampoco es para comunicarnos a los seres extraterrestres, ahora que llevamos décadas intentándolo sin fruto. Es posible que preceda al turismo espacial como han sugerido los directores de las empresas aeroespaciales, pero su ámbito será muy limitado de aquí a pronto.
La verdad es que la exploración espacial sirve casi exclusivamente para la investigación fundamental, es decir, la que se lleva a cabo solo para descubrir más conocimientos sin pensar en la utilidad inmediata. Los científicos intentan contestar preguntas respecto al universo, entre ellas cómo se originó y cómo ha evolucionado, si existen o existían otras formas de vida (que no necesariamente son inteligentes), y cómo será nuestro planeta y nuestro sistema solar.
Y como otros campos de la investigación fundamental, la pregunta asociada al gasto no es si se gasta o no se gasta, sino cuánto. Es claro que no se realice por una finalidad específica, sino solamente por curiosidad. No obstante, es importante saber que, cuando descubrimos algún conocimiento nuevo, independientemente de su significado, esto puede servir como la base de las aplicaciones más prácticas en los años, las décadas o aún las centurias que vienen. Por lo tanto, es importante que sigamos invirtiendo en estas actividades, no obstante menos de lo que invertimos en campos más prácticos.

Pretty much there in the title. Almost as soon as High Hrothgar comes into view, or a little after I get a ctd. No idea why this is happening. I've searched a little and tried

  1. Removing Dyndolod
  2. REmoving Immersive Sounds Compendium
  3. waiting in whiterun for a week
None of those helped. Crash at the spot without fail.

2022.01.21 01:39 Redditors_r_fragile Would this system work?

Im currently living in an apartment and dont have a lot of space — so Im trying to make a compact modular aquaponic system in my closet. I am thinking of a design like this: https://ibb.co/G52kyPK
I would have several containers and Id run them in a series. The blue lines going from the bottom of one container to the next are pipes filled with water for equalizing water levels. My hope is that these water equalizers would also transport oxygen to the fish furthest from the aerator (labeled “A”).
Is this a plausible design?
