Trouble on the Homefront by Tarrock in MeanwhileOnReddit

Polyamory is older than marriage since the latter is a constructed institution that didn't always exist. If it hadn't been a serious threat to marriage before, I don't see why it would be now.

One of the things I've noticed is that women who are away from their partners for significant amounts of time, like in the military, oil rig workers, long distance relationships, workaholics, etc, generally don't stay faithful. Perhaps you've heard of the much maligned Jody who takes care of neglected military wives.

So what are your options here

  • she cheats, doesn't tell you, and you live blissfully unaware
  • she cheats, doesn't tell you, and you find out anyways
  • she cheats, tells you, and you always have to live with a betrayal
  • she cheats, tells you, and you divorce her ass
  • she doesn't cheat, but you are never certain because this is probably more rare than people want to think about

If that's what you want or have I'm not knocking it. It seems unnecessarily limiting to me.

If you do have kids, the parents should stay committed to, supportive of, and focused on their children and each other (and that includes sexual satisfaction).

And when the kids are grown and raising their own families, the woman's sex drive is gone after menopause (sometimes it goes up, people are different) but the man still wants physical affection, the men divorce their wives and get a younger model. Instead of just increasing the scope of your union, you dissolve and replace it. Or cheat. Or live unhappily.

I don't see that as better. I think the most important thing about a committed relationship, not only marriage, is it's forming a union, you and that person against the world, a team not only to raise kids but to build a life together. Some people are okay with bigger teams than others.

I wish I knew about it first, it would have made things a lot easier. For me it was just like "oh that's what you call it," and it's nice there's other people out there like that.

I first realized it was a thing after watching the Oliver Stone movie Savages, although my very first take was that the dudes were tremendous cucks. It took a sec to sink in.

I don't know what you think, but I'm not so sure anyone should ever decide to become poly any more than they should decide to be gay. Most people just aren't. It's not a kink, not hot wifing, not cuckholding. It's not about fucking a bunch of people. It's about loving more than one person, and I'm just a loving guy.

There's a few possible reasons I can think of, and it probably involves a combination of factors rather than just one simple cause.

  • Medicine isn't a perfect science. A number of studies conflict with each other about the effectiveness of HCQ.
  • Trump recommended it and so it was rejected for political reasons
  • There's not much money to be made on HCQ
  • The new vaccines prove RNA vaccines can work, something that had been in development since 1989 but never tried
  • Some people are really hung up on the dangers of SARs, this is not the first scare.

I'm still trying to sort out the ultimate motivation and goals of those who clearly want a society 100% comprised of compliant brainless worker bees producing goods for them

They already have that.

Why work so hard to kill precisely the people you (as a divinely superior being) want to have working to provide your comforts for you?

Obviously they wouldn't. Depopulation was never a valid concern about the vaccine. More peasants is beneficial for everyone except the peasants.

My personal theory is after an accidental release of the covid bioweapon the powers that be scrambled to save their peasant stock, as a farmer would do for his livestock. There's a few side benefits, making money on the vaccines, an opportunity to experiment with a large population, and squashing free speech, keeping us noisy peasants from being as bothersome.

So business as usual. I don't think there's anything malicious behind the vaccine. I do have a concern for the long term effects, which are currently unknowable, as well as the push to ridicule people for having valid concerns.

Overall the vaccines are less likely to fuck you over than say... Wellbutrin, or any antidepressant, except almost nobody is up in arms about that one.

Polyamory is a really tricky lifestyle, there's a number of pitfalls that are easy to fall into. I personally think of this one as the Shiny New Toy problem. Pretty much the plot of Toy Story 2, the person is experiencing what polyamorists call New Relationship Energy with the new partner, the heady feeling of falling in love and getting to know someone new, and they can sometimes end up neglecting their old partner.

Frankly, that's not Polyamory done well, but it happens. Related are "Cowboys," guys who enter into poly relationships with the intention of stealing the woman away. This might be a cowboy situation.

Men get the short end of the stick usually in poly, it's really easy for women to find partners, not so much for men. So it's not uncommon for women to have or have had several partners while the guy has nobody and receives less attention overall.

So it's just the wife fucking other dudes, which is obviously not ideal. But if this dude had a girlfriend he'd probably feel a lot better about the situation.

It doesn't have to be bad though, my ex and I had a de facto poly relationship after we broke up, all 3 of us just got along really well and nobody was particularly jealous. That was pretty awesome.

And now although my wife isn't down with me fucking anyone else, she is okay with me forming close emotional relationships with other women, something that is sometimes viewed as "emotional cheating."

To add to that, testosterone blocks oxytocin, we don't even experience love as strongly as women do. Which serves a practical purpose but it kinda sucks.

Blacks are also the only race that get two choices of women to mate with. The media encourages them to date either Black Women to preserve their race, but the media also tells them they can have White Women too and many commercials show Black Men having White Wives given to them.

Almost half the women I've slept with were black, which admittedly isn't a high number. You can do it, but yeah, there is hostility towards it.

Black people are also shielded by criticism for every type of wrong doing imaginable. If a police officer stops them, or if they rob a bank in New York, the government will say they are just "victims" of White supremacy and let them go

That point I totally disagree with though. In college I used to wander around smoking joints and thought nothing of it. Two black guys I knew were totally fucked over it. When I did it, it was a harmless youthful indiscretion. They were treated like criminals.

You should see what they did to my former drug dealer. Dude's been fucked on bs legal charges for years now. Yeah, he used to sell some pot but they threw the damned kitchen sink at him.

I've known a few white guys who were literally walking pharmacies and they got sweetheart deals for "personal use" rather than distribution.

I don't fuck with that shit anymore but I've known a fair bit of criminals and it's definitely better to be white if you're going to break the law.

Although it's hard not to notice how very much "diversity" there is in violent crime. It didn't happen in a vacuum.

The LD50 in the rat and the mouse is about 1600 mg/kg (oral administration) and 75 mg/kg (rat) and 50 mg/kg (mouse) on intravenous administration. Subchronic oral studies over 13 weeks in doses of 5, 15 and 45 mg/kg/day in the dog and 50, 100 and 200 mg/kg/day in the rat have demonstrated minimal toxicity for midazolam, as for other benzodiazepines.

A 100kg male would take FIVE GRAMS intravenously to hit the LD50, assuming it's as low as rats which isn't a given. Orally it would be ONE HUNDRED AND SIXTY GRAMS not that it's usually given in pill form. It's IV form comes in a max 5mg/ml strength. You'd need to pump IV bag after bag of midazolam into someone to hit those crazy amounts.

I get there's a huge difference with sex drives, it causes serious problems in relationships. But even a low sex drive does not mean a non existent one. Even asexual people are not always celibate.

My grandfather was in seminary, they're definitely not all asexual people at that. Maybe some are and it would make more sense for them, but plenty of priests I assume have normal sex drives.

Just they're not going to have anyone to sue for round 2.

I found this on imgur. I do try to hot link and skip Imgur's bloat when I can. This one only had the option to be downloaded as a mp4 and then would need a video host afaik if I moved it.

The officer shot Bouler on November 17, 2019 while responding to a report of an intoxicated man with a weapon at an apartment on Roosevelt Street in Gary.

Investigators said they found that the 82-year-old was drunk and armed with a handgun that he'd threatened to use to harm himself and others.

The officer said Bouler was sitting in a car outside the complex when he pulled out a silver revolver from his right pocket and pointed it at the officer.

"[He] responded to the fire arm being pointed at him and commanded Bouler to drop the gun, fired his service weapon through the front window shield of the vehicle striking Bouler and causing him to drop the weapon," said Commander Michael Stewart, Lake County Sheriff's Office.

Bouler was struck several times and critically wounded. Authorities said they recovered a loaded weapon from inside his red Nissan Altima. He died two months later.

I'm pretty sure I've also repeated Admiral Morrison was responsible for the Gulf of Tonkin, and I guess in a way, although he wasn't an admiral yet, as overall commander he does have ultimate responsibility for everyone under his command.

The Gulf of Tonkin was like Iraq's WMDs, just an excuse for war. The incident itself was minor. It didn't have to start a war. There's an excellent documentary called Fog of War about Robert McNamara that's an interesting watch. It gives an insight into what they were thinking at the time.

Captain George Stephen Morrison was in charge of local forces but he wasn't captain of the Maddox, the ship involved in the incident, rather Captain Morrison's flagship was the USS Bon Homme Richard. And I think the start of the war falls mostly on Lyndon B. Johnson. Jim used to say his parents were dead and didn't mention his siblings.

I was thinking more of Jim Morrison's alcoholism, drug use, and womanizing. Most of his recordings he is performing drunk. His occasional guttural chanting in the middle of songs is him forgetting the lyrics.
