@ned @mangeurdenuage @Becassine @Leaflord @Sophistifunk This is the burden of authority. They're not automatons and they expect you to make decisions on their behalf. The decisions you make will be judged because you're taking on the responsibility.

A woman wants to be able to submit to and trust her husband. She needs to be able to know that he can be the head of the clan and care for her needs and her children without having to micromanage and backseat drive. Women were not created for headship. Women find this exhausting and complain about having to nag their husbands all the time. Their husbands whimper "I do what I'm told, I do everything she asks" without realizing this is the most infantile and unmanly thing possible.

The burden of authority is that even when things are outside of your control you're ultimately responsible. It's not only doing what you're assigned but also stepping back and seeing what needs to be done. When women do what we expect of them, what they're made to do, and when they submit they required commensurate leadership from men.

This is the same burden placed on a King whose subjects willingly submit but then behead him for giving the wrong orders. It's not some sort of test. It's his duty and he failed. When a woman goes against her immediate judgment, chooses not to have an opinion, and listens to her husband and he fails to take that responsibility seriously he has failed his wife.

This is why I have male friends I won't introduce to my single female friends. This is why soiboi relationship advice doesn't improve relationships. This is why only a select few with the souls of Nobility have any future in this world.

Most men don't want responsibility and power
Most men aren't ready for it
Most men can't do it

"was found dead at her home in Turnerville, Georgia on March 26, 2010 with a single gunshot wound to her back along with her husband of 52 years, Bruce Schaefer, who was found with a single gunshot wound to his chest."

I find myself immediately skimming anything I see that is more than a sentence or two. This is a problem. Public school and the internet was a mistake. :ablobcatnodfast:

Are there any projects out there aiming to replace DNS registrars with some sort of consensus network? Just thinking that would be more censorship resistant than a wholly centralized system. :blobcatcooljazz:

LibreOffice pls use more than one core when formatting a doc it is taking an hour to decrease font size of 4.2 million characters :pepe_cry:

the DIY impulse is a good one. my vet told me there was no point doing surgery on chickens, so i did it myself. i have no medical training whatsoever
i've had three chickens with impacted crop. a golf ball sized lump of grass accumulates in there, so that they can no longer eat much. they waste away due to slow starvation.

you restrain the bird, and cut away the feathers with scissors to reveal the distended crop. then you clean the area. you make an incision to peel back the skin and reveal the crop, which is just a huge bag of very firm muscle. you make a small incision in the crop, then use tweezers to slowly extract all the grass. this takes about half an hour. then you have to seal the incision on the crop with superglue or a sticky gel they make for closing wounds. after that, you do the same thing to the skin and then wrap the whole thing in gauze and put the bird in a pet carrier for 3-4 days to make sure she won't rip her wounds open. all the birds i did this to lived for at least another year before dying of other causes.

I'm not sure how this came to me but...

This is just what I needed to hear today.

I never heard of Elisabeth Elliot before...

There is a lot of good scripture quotes and she tells a solid story.

I'm over 1 year video game free and it has changed my life. I'm now working on projects like studying the Bible, building wood things, learning Rust, laying down new flooring for my mom, and many other enriching tasks that I wouldn't have even thought to do otherwise.

That being said, video games have one thing that I'll never give up: their music.

Case in point: Undertale and its community of remixers. The OST and its derivatives slap hard. :ablobcatrainbow:
