man, i haven't seen an indian in a full year, even the good indian restaurant here has white host and waitress. I've talked to a lot of them, since amazon ships shit funny, i think out 10calls to amazon 9 are indian.
It was weird watching Tuco
press Draegan for a breakdown of the supposed costs, with Draegan repeatedly saying things like "There is no breakdown. If Teljair tells me that's how much it is, that's how much it is"
That explains why the writing for the fake rape story was so shitty.

I don't see how that's relevant, since there's a large difference between medical knowledge and treating someone. An OB/GYN isn't going to talk about how my body can magically tell the difference between a "forceable/legitimate" rapist's sperm and that from consensual or "gentle/illegitimate" rape, and he's far less likely to legislate health issues on morality than on medical fact...I'd hope.

I appreciate the sentiment. But I've sat here and I can't even come up with a situation that you'd experience that'd come close to what I and a quarter of the women out there have gone through. Because it's not just the act itself, as abhorrent as it is, that we have to go through. It's everything else afterwards. Frankly, I'm not sure that the Political Thread on the a gaming forum is best place to discuss this shit, but here it is, since the cat's out of the bag already.
Mods, feel free to delete whatever if this ain't the place for it.
It's being afraid to report it because it happened at a party with X going around (of which I had partaken), and not wanting to admit to a crime to report a crime or sit through the trial where the defendant's lawyer is going to do his damndest to make me look like a vindictive slut to get his client off the hook.
It's dropping out of college because you saw the guy that did it every day on campus and had a panic attack every time he looked your way.
It's going to your pastor about it because you have to talk to someone, and getting a lecture about how if I were a better Christian woman, I wouldn't have even been in that situation in the first place, and that God gives us all trials and tribulations that we have to deal with.
It's about having every single second of it come flooding back to me when I'm late and that fucking tests showed two lines.
It's about having to go to Planned Parenthood and showing up on a day when a protest was happening, and having words like slut, whore, baby-killer, etc. thrown at me when I was already hating myself, because I couldn't shake the idea that this was my fault.
It's about losing contact with some of my more religious family because in their eyes I killed a baby, and what led to it isn't as important as the fact that I'm a murderous slut in their eyes, never mind that I had been a good little virgin up until that point and the only reason I was pregnant was because some asshole thought that I just didn't know how good sex was on E when I was telling him no and I was too afraid to make a scene.
It's having to always have a bar of Xanax on me in case I encounter a trigger so I can stop reliving it, and being unable to really have a rational conversation about the topic without being very, very careful with my words and position lest I set myself off.
It's about crying while I type this out at work and telling my coworkers that my allergies are fuckin' killing me.
It's about the absolute rage and venom I can't stop myself from feeling when I hear some asshat like Todd Akin, Ron Paul, or Paul Ryan describe my rape as not legitimate because I apparently didn't fight hard enough to prevent it to make it "forcible" or "legitimate", or that my body somehow knew I wasn't raped and let me get pregnant.
It's about me seeing your joke, knowing it's a joke, knowing that I have no reason to be angry with a joke like that, that it's completely irrational to do so, and that I still had to step out for a cigarette and calm the fuck down before I wrote this out so I didn't make even more of an ass out of myself, because my pastor actually implied that me being raped was my fault.
It's having to live with the knowledge every single day of my life of the choice I made, and having it bear on me even more so when later unrelated medical issues made it so that the pregnancy I aborted would be the only one my body would ever carry.
It's all those things and more. It's not just the act. The assault is just the beginning. It's the losing the ability to remain in control of my emotions and have rational thought about a serious topic in this country, and knowing that it was ripped away from me by someone else...and he's got a wife and kids and a good job and may not even think he raped me because I was too cowardly to make a scene and assert my right to keep his dick the fuck outta me.
There are not many guys, no matter how good they are, that will ever understand that perspective, and people who haven't experienced it should thank everything they hold dear that they will never, ever, ever be able to fully understand how little perspective they have.
And now each and every one of you had better be responding to this with a fuckin' PMS or rape joke, or I'm gonna lose my faith in FOH.
Kind of a tech question but I figured better viewership here than in that subforum, and might end up as a new classified ad. But is there a reasonable way to transfer large ish files to other people effeciently via like a shared cloud or whatever? IE someone has a season of a show, rather than torrenting it, they just send it to someone? Saved quite a bit on mid range comcast tv package rather than going premium when we swapped from garbagelink. Only problem is she's missing 1-2 of her shows and has her all triggered. Not available streaming and I have zero net savy to be torrenting shit safely.
Won't help your cloud transfer issue much but all Seedr.cc is really all you need to torrent shit safely. Basically paste a torrent link to the seedr.cc text entry and the torrent is downloaded onto a secured cloud. You can download safely from that cloud account or stream the movies onto your phone or web browser in any device.
Free version has like 4 gigs of space (that you can increase with referrals) or its like ten bucks a month for 100gb of space and 2x seeding ratio for each torrent, if you use private trackers and care about ratio.
If you want to share the movies with your wife or someone you trust you could just share ur login info with them too.
