Why are rape cases against women taken seriously
We have made many laws in support of women when it comes to sexual or oral assault and harassment . However y arent such same laws appilcable or made for men also ?
It's so sad people don't know the real use case of xrp , go to ripple.com and learn more
People care less for ripple , Xrp brings internet of value to the payment system we have today
I’m sorry ignore this, but I don’t even get the point of this argument.. how did @TheStrangest get involved in a topic about @batman who got into an argument about @YoursBucky’s post?
And who the fuck would think Fanta would send dick pics to Meg when they’re best friends and he’s gay??
You know what nvm.. @G-A care to share?
@ƀunny and @ᑕᖇiᗰᔕ-ᑎ
This will be last warn from me since I apologize you both to do such actions and I will rise and discuss this case with @RAGNAR for the further actions if you don’t behave again. There are several notes that you have to know from me.
- It is not like I don’t like drama, but this is such a humiliation thread for me. I know you put your anger, your upset and want to share it with us, but we can do nothing. What did you expect from this? Like people will do understand you and vote for you then they do the same thing like you do? NO WAY. With this thread, people will disrespect whatever you said since you talk about rubbish things. Nobody cares. Then, they will have all of actions in this thread below. Don’t believe me? Re-read all of that comments.
- If you had such bad experience, you dislike, you feel you had sexual harassment or this unpleasant case or whatever case you think it is unfair, offended till you upset, you have to provide such relevant documents e. g screenshot, picture or perhaps that person texts directly to you. If you don’t have it, it could be considered as verbal harassment, cyberbullying, defamation, blasphemy, humiliation and unpleasant words and behaviors. This is a serious case since you did it again, for different people, for whatever reason, it is unpleasant things. Hence, if you dare to do such things again, I will rise this case and bring all facts that YOU HAVE TO BE PERMANENTLY BANNED IN HERE. So, take this as a good lesson and grow up to be a good human.
- If you feel this is uncomfortable for you but you don’t have any evidences any related documents to make this person feel stop doing such action to you or perhaps you want to share your bad experience with all of us, you can discuss it first with GLOBAL MODS. If you could not reach GLOBAL MODS, you could discuss, as an advice or may be report this to these person @evan-elderson, @RAGNAR. That’s why they are here. It is wise action so all of them could have concern with this.
I believe all of explanation above is clear. This is not like I hate you or blame you or whatever you think. I do explain, do all of this things because I want you to behave and learn how to take a good action. So, close this case. Thank you and please have a fruitful day.
Dude @RAGNAR, please do me a favor, if this two girls do messing up AGAIN, can we please have another discussion? I don’t want this people spread or blast some “rubbish talk” AGAIN even more hurting some people here. As you said before trolls, cyberbullying, sexual harassment and spamming, not all of this are allowed. This is a preventive method so you could keep an eye also avoid the worst cast.
@WtfJudith, if there is nothing left or no words from those both girls or you, please do me a favor to lock this thread. Thank you and always love you babe.
A Protest Letter
@Mr-H it is such an interesting topics when you say about dealing with addiction. Obviously, we all have our own ways to deal with it. Please don’t mistake me about @stranger_danger and @evan-eldersen case since I just want to know how this case appeared and ended up like that. Evan has explained all this stuff and I completely understand. About cyber bullying, we may well aware of @YoursBucky or several cases here. I don’t want to take any side or look for someone who had full responsible about it. I just feel like “you seriously want to kick out and drag someone down but you don’t have any evidence of it? Woa. Thats not fair”. Then I get the a conclusion that everyone who saw that post was aware but they have nothing to do so do I since we dont understand, that’s why I ask this case to @RAGNAR.
Ur fav religious video....??
The Quraan is about is about degrading women, treat them like objects where adultery is permitted, religion is quite dumb, I'm gonna write a book and wait for someone to find it a thousand years later so they can make a religion based on it, there's no proof, there's no love, merely stories made to keep people under control.
@Jimmy1708 since your scull is too thick I'll provide some more stats
According to HRW 2013 report, Afghanistan has one of the highest incidence rates of domestic violence in the world. Domestic violence is so common that 85 per cent of women admit to experiencing it. 60% of all women report being victims of multiple forms of serial violence.Afghanistan is the only country in which the female suicide rate is higher than that of males.
According to a WHO, United Nations study, 30% of women in rural Bangladesh reported their first sexual experience to be forced. About 40% report having experienced domestic violence from their intimate partner, and 50% in rural regions report experiencing sexual violence.
Statistics from four United Nations studies, from 1990s, show that 16-19% of the women (age less than 50) were victims of domestic abuse within the previous 12-month period. 40-47% of the women had been subject to domestic violence during some period of their life. The studies were performed in villages (1992, 1993), Dhaka (2002) and Matlab (2002).
About 90% of women in Bangladesh are practicing Muslims, which indicates that many Muslim women are victims of physical domestic violence in this country.From a World Health Organization (WHO) study, of which Bangladesh was 1 of 10 participating countries, it was found that less than 2% of domestic abuse victims seek support from the community to resolve abusive situations, primarily because they know that they won't receive the support they need to remedy the issue.
Naved and Perrson write in their article "Factors Associated with Physical Spousal Abuse of Women During Pregnancy in Bangladesh" that women who are pregnant are more likely to be abused. A study on Pakistan Rural Access and Mobility Study (PRAMS) data showed that 67% of perpetrators were husbands or partners".Bangladesh was found to be one of the countries with a high rate of domestic violence resulting in death during pregnancy by a United Nations study.
A 2012 United Nations Women's study found that 33% of women in Egypt have experienced physical domestic violence in their lifetime, while 18% report having experienced domestic physical violence in last 12 months.
Another United Nationsnational study in 1995, 13% of the women (age 15-49) were victims of domestic abuse within the previous 12-month period. 34% of the women had been subject to domestic violence during some period of their life. In a 2004 study of pregnant women in El-Sheik Zayed 11% of the women (age 15-49) studied were victims of domestic abuse within the previous 12-month period and, also, during some period of their life.
According to Egyptian Centre for Women's Rights and World Bank Social Development Group's 2010 report, 85% of Egyptian women report of having experienced sexual harassment.
The World Health Organization reported sharply increasing rates of domestic violence in Indonesia, with over 25,000 cases in 2007. Nearly 3 in 4 cases, it is the husband beating the wife; the next largest reported category were the in-laws abusing the wife. The higher rates may be because more cases of violence against women are being reported in Indonesia, rather than going unreported, than before.From a United Nations study of Central Java, 2% of the women (age 15-49) were victims of domestic abuse within the previous 12-month period. 11% of the women had been subject to domestic violence during some period of their life.
In Iran the nature of domestic violence is complicated by both a national culture and authoritative state that support control, oppression and violence against women.
A World Health Organization(WHO) study in Babol found that within the previous year 15.0% of wives had been physically abused, 42.4% had been sexually abused and 81.5% had been psychologically abused (to various degrees) by their husbands, blaming low income, young age, unemployment and low education.
In 2004 a study of domestic violence was undertaken by the Women's Center for Presidential Advisory, Ministry of Higher Education and The Interior Ministry of capital cities in Iran's 28 provinces. 66% married women in Iran are subjected to some kind of domestic violence in the first year of their marriage, either by their husbands or by their in-laws. All married women who were participants in this study in Iran have experienced 7.4% of the 9 categories of abuse. The likelihood of being subject to violence varied: The more children in a family or the more rural the family lived, the greater the likelihood of domestic violence; Educated and career women were less likely to be victims of abuse. 9.63% of women in the study reported wishing their husbands would die, as a result of the abuse they have experienced.
The prevalence of domestic violence has been cited as a cause of high rates of suicide, mostly through self-immolation, among Kurdish women in Iran.
The 2012 United Nations Women's study found that at least 1 in 5 women in Jordan has experienced physical domestic violence in her lifetime, while 1 in 7 reports having experienced domestic physical violence in last 12 months. Islamic scholarsclaim mundane domestic violence such as slapping and battering by husband orfamily members is hugely unreported in Jordan, along with other Middle Eastern countries.
In Morocco, the most common reason women seek to end a marriage is to extricate themselves from a situation in which they are vulnerable to domestic violence, as 28,000 acts of domestic violence was reported between 1984 and 1998.
A 2011 report claims 80% of women in Pakistan suffer from domestic abuse. A 2004 study claimed 50% of the women in Pakistan are physically battered and 90% are mentally and verbally abused by their men, while other reports claims domestic violence rates between 70% to over 95% in Pakistan.Earlier studies from 1970s to 1990s suggest similar incidence rates of domestic violence in Pakistan.In Pakistan, domestic violence occurs in forms of beatings, sexual violence, torture, mutilation, acid attacks and burning the victim alive (bride burning).
In some recent high-profile cases such as that of Rania al-Baz, Muslim women have publicized their mistreatment at the hands of their husbands, in hopes that public condemnation of wife-beating will end toleration of the practice.
One recent study, in Syria, found that 25% of the married women surveyed said that they had been beaten by their husbands. Another study found that 21.8% of women have experienced some form of domestic violence; 48% of the women who experienced some form of violence had been beaten.
A 2009 study published by the Government of Turkey reports widespread domestic violence against women in Turkey. In urban and rural areas, 40% of Turkish women reported having experienced spousal violence in their lifetime, 10% of all women reported of domestic abuse within last 12 months. In the 15-24 year age group, 20% of the women reported of domestic violence by their husbands or male members of their family. The domestic violence ranged from slapping, battering and other forms of violence. The injuries, as a result of the reported domestic violence included bleeding, broken bones and other forms needing medical attention. Over half reported severe injuries. A third of all women who admitted domestic abuse cases, claimed having suffered repeat domestic abuse injuries in excess of 5 times.
Another United Nations study in East and South-East Anatolia in 1998, 58% of the women (age 14-75) had been subject to domestic violence during some period of their life; some of the women in the sampling had never been in a relationship which might have otherwise resulted in a higher statistic.
I'll provide this stat again incase you didn't see it

@thestrangest fuck your rules
What is a rainbow?
Author Donald Ahrens in his text Meteorology Today describes a rainbow as "one of the most spectacular light shows observed on earth". Indeed the traditional rainbow is sunlight spread out into its spectrum of colors and diverted to the eye of the observer by water droplets. The "bow" part of the word describes the fact that the rainbow is a group of nearly circular arcs of color all having a common center.
Where is the sun when you see a rainbow?
This is a good question to start thinking about the physical process that gives rise to a rainbow. Most people have never noticed that the sun is always behind you when you face a rainbow, and that the center of the circular arc of the rainbow is in the direction opposite to that of the sun. The rain, of course, is in the direction of the rainbow.
What makes the bow?
A question like this calls for a proper physical answer. We will discuss the formation of a rainbow by raindrops. It is a problem in optics that was first clearly discussed by Rene Descartes in 1637. An interesting historical account of this is to be found in Carl Boyer's book, The Rainbow From Myth to Mathematics. Descartes simplified the study of the rainbow by reducing it to a study of one water droplet and how it interacts with light falling upon it.
He writes:"Considering that this bow appears not only in the sky, but also in the air near us, whenever there are drops of water illuminated by the sun, as we can see in certain fountains, I readily decided that it arose only from the way in which the rays of light act on these drops and pass from them to our eyes. Further, knowing that the drops are round, as has been formerly proved, and seeing that whether they are larger or smaller, the appearance of the bow is not changed in any way, I had the idea of making a very large one, so that I could examine it better.
Descarte describes how he held up a large sphere in the sunlight and looked at the sunlight reflected in it. He wrote "I found that if the sunlight came, for example, from the part of the sky which is marked AFZ
and my eye was at the point E, when I put the globe in position BCD, its part D appeared all red, and much more brilliant than the rest of it; and that whether I approached it or receded from it, or put it on my right or my left, or even turned it round about my head, provided that the line DE always made an angle of about forty-two degrees with the line EM, which we are to think of as drawn from the center of the sun to the eye, the part D appeared always similarly red; but that as soon as I made this angle DEM even a little larger, the red color disappeared; and if I made the angle a little smaller, the color did not disappear all at once, but divided itself first as if into two parts, less brilliant, and in which I could see yellow, blue, and other colors ... When I examined more particularly, in the globe BCD, what it was which made the part D appear red, I found that it was the rays of the sun which, coming from A to B, bend on entering the water at the point B, and to pass to C, where they are reflected to D, and bending there again as they pass out of the water, proceed to the point ".
This quotation illustrates how the shape of the rainbow is explained. To simplify the analysis, consider the path of a ray of monochromatic light through a single spherical raindrop. Imagine how light is refracted as it enters the raindrop, then how it is reflected by the internal, curved, mirror-like surface of the raindrop, and finally how it is refracted as it emerges from the drop. If we then apply the results for a single raindrop to a whole collection of raindrops in the sky, we can visualize the shape of the bow.
The traditional diagram to illustrate this is shown here as adapted from Humphreys, Physics of the Air. It represents the path of one light ray incident on a water droplet from the direction SA. As the light beam enters the surface of the drop at A, it is bent (refracted) a little and strikes the inside wall of the drop at B, where it is reflected back to C. As it emerges from the drop it is refracted (bent) again into the direction CE. The angle D represents a measure of the deviation of the emergent ray from its original direction. Descartes calculated this deviation for a ray of red light to be about 180 - 42 or 138 degrees.
The ray drawn here is significant because it represents the ray that has the smallest angle of deviation of all the rays incident upon the raindrop. It is called the Descarte or rainbow ray and much of the sunlight as it is refracted and reflected through the raindrop is focused along this ray. Thus the reflected light is diffuse and weaker except near the direction of this rainbow ray. It is this concentration of rays near the minimum deviation that gives rise to the arc of rainbow.
The sun is so far away that we can, to a good approximation, assume that sunlight can be represented by a set of parallel rays all falling on the water globule and being refracted, reflected internally, and refracted again on emergence from the droplet in a manner like the figure. Descartes writes
I took my pen and made an accurate calculation of the paths of the rays which fall on the different points of a globe of water to determine at which angles, after two refractions and one or two reflections they will come to the eye, and I then found that after one reflection and two refractions there are many more rays which can be seen at an angle of from forty-one to forty-two degrees than at any smaller angle; and that there are none which can be seen at a larger angle" (the angle he is referring to is 180 - D).
A typical raindrop is spherical and therefore its effect on sunlight is symmetrical about an axis through the center of the drop and the source of light (in this case the sun). Because of this symmetry, the two-dimensional illustration of the figure serves us well and the complete picture can be visualized by rotating the two dimensional illustration about the axis of symmetry. The symmetry of the focusing effect of each drop is such that whenever we view a raindrop along the line of sight defined by the rainbow ray, we will see a bright spot of reflected/refracted sunlight. Referring to the figure, we see that the rainbow ray for red light makes an angle of 42 degrees between the direction of the incident sunlight and the line of sight. Therefore, as long as the raindrop is viewed along a line of sight that makes this angle with the direction of incident light, we will see a brightening. The rainbow is thus a circle of angular radius 42 degrees, centered on the antisolar point, as shown schematically here.
We don't see a full circle because the earth gets in the way. The lower the sun is to the horizon, the more of the circle we see -right at sunset, we would see a full semicircle of the rainbow with the top of the arch 42 degrees above the horizon. The higher the sun is in the sky, the smaller is the arch of the rainbow above the horizon.
What makes the colors in the rainbow?
The traditional description of the rainbow is that it is made up of seven colors - red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet. Actually, the rainbow is a whole continuum of colors from red to violet and even beyond the colors that the eye can see.
The colors of the rainbow arise from two basic facts:
Sunlight is made up of the whole range of colors that the eye can detect. The range of sunlight colors, when combined, looks white to the eye. This property of sunlight was first demonstrated by Sir Isaac Newton in 1666.
Light of different colors is refracted by different amounts when it passes from one medium (air, for example) into another (water or glass, for example).
Descartes and Willebrord Snell had determined how a ray of light is bent, or refracted, as it traverses regions of different densities, such as air and water. When the light paths through a raindrop are traced for red and blue light, one finds that the angle of deviation is different for the two colors because blue light is bent or refracted more than is the red light. This implies that when we see a rainbow and its band of colors we are looking at light refracted and reflected from different raindrops, some viewed at an angle of 42 degrees; some, at an angle of 40 degrees, and some in between. This is illustrated in this drawing, adapted from Johnson's Physical Meteorology. This rainbow of two colors would have a width of almost 2 degrees (about four times larger than the angular size as the full moon). Note that even though blue light is refracted more than red light in a single drop, we see the blue light on the inner part of the arc because we are looking along a different line of sight that has a smaller angle (40 degrees) for the blue.
Ana excellent laboratory exercise on the mathematics of rainbows is here, and F. K. Hwang has produced a fine Java Applet illustrating this refraction, and Nigel Greenwood has written a program that operates in MS Excel that illustrates the way the angles change as a function of the sun's angle.
What makes a double rainbow?
Sometimes we see two rainbows at once, what causes this? We have followed the path of a ray of sunlight as it enters and is reflected inside the raindrop. But not all of the energy of the ray escapes the raindrop after it is reflected once. A part of the ray is reflected again and travels along inside the drop to emerge from the drop. The rainbow we normally see is called the primary rainbow and is produced by one internal reflection; the secondary rainbow arises from two internal reflections and the rays exit the drop at an angle of 50 degrees° rather than the 42°degrees for the red primary bow. Blue light emerges at an even larger angle of 53 degrees°. his effect produces a secondary rainbow that has its colors reversed compared to the primary, as illustrated in the drawing, adapted from the Science Universe Series Sight, Light, and Color.
It is possible for light to be reflected more than twice within a raindrop, and one can calculate where the higher order rainbows might be seen; but these are never seen in normal circumstances.
Why is the sky brighter inside a rainbow?
Notice the contrast between the sky inside the arc and outside it. When one studies the refraction of sunlight on a raindrop one finds that there are many rays emerging at angles smaller than the rainbow ray, but essentially no light from single internal reflections at angles greater than this ray. Thus there is a lot of light within the bow, and very little beyond it. Because this light is a mix of all the rainbow colors, it is white. In the case of the secondary rainbow, the rainbow ray is the smallest angle and there are many rays emerging at angles greater than this one. Therefore the two bows combine to define a dark region between them - called Alexander's Dark Band, in honor of Alexander of Aphrodisias who discussed it some 1800 years ago!
What are Supernumerary Arcs?
In some rainbows, faint arcs just inside and near the top of the primary bow can be seen. These are called supernumerary arcs and were explained by Thomas Young in 1804 as arising from the interference of light along certain rays within the drop. Young's work had a profound influence on theories of the physical nature of light and his studies of the rainbow were a fundamental element of this. Young interpreted light in terms of it being a wave of some sort and that when two rays are scattered in the same direction within a raindrop, they may interfere with each other. Depending on how the rays mesh together, the interference can be constructive, in which case the rays produce a brightening, or destructive, in which case there is a reduction in brightness. This phenomenon is clearly described in Nussenzveig's article "The Theory of the Rainbow" in which he writes: "At angles very close to the rainbow angle the two paths through the droplet differ only slightly, and so the two rays interfere constructively. As the angle increases, the two rays follow paths of substantially different lengths. When the difference equals half of the wavelength, the interference is completely destructive; at still greater angles the beams reinforce again. The result is a periodic variation in the intensity of the scattered light, a series of alternately bright and dark bands."
Mikolaj and Pawel Sawicki have posted several beautiful photographs of rainbows showing these arcs.
The "purity" of the colors of the rainbow depends on the size of the raindrops. Large drops (diameters of a few millimeters) give bright rainbows with well defined colors; small droplets (diameters of about 0.01 mm) produce rainbows of overlapping colors that appear nearly white. And remember that the models that predict a rainbow arc all assume spherical shapes for raindrops.
There is never a single size for water drops in rain but a mixture of many sizes and shapes. This results in a composite rainbow. Raindrops generally don't "grow" to radii larger than about 0.5 cm without breaking up because of collisions with other raindrops, although occasionally drops a few millimeters larger in radius have been observed when there are very few drops (and so few collisions between the drops) in a rainstorm. Bill Livingston suggests: " If you are brave enough, look up during a thunder shower at the falling drops. Some may hit your eye (or glasses), but this is not fatal. You will actually see that the drops are distorted and are oscillating."
It is the surface tension of water that moulds raindrops into spherical shapes, if no other forces are acting on them. But as a drop falls in the air, the 'drag' causes a distortion in its shape, making it somewhat flattened. Deviations from a spherical shape have been measured by suspending drops in the air stream of a vertical wind tunnel (Pruppacher and Beard, 1970, and Pruppacher and Pitter, 1971). Small drops of radius less than 140 microns (0.014 cm) remain spherical, but as the size of the drop increases, the flattening becomes noticeable. For drops with a radius near 0.14 cm, the height/width ratio is 0.85. This flattening increases for larger drops.
Spherical drops produce symmetrical rainbows, but rainbows seen when the sun is near the horizon are often observed to be brighter at their sides, the vertical part, than at their top. Alistair Fraser has explained this phenomenon as resulting from the complex mixture of size and shape of the raindrops. The reflection and refraction of light from a flattened water droplet is not symmetrical. For a flattened drop, some of the rainbow ray is lost at top and bottom of the drop. Therefore, we see the rays from these flattened drops only as we view them horizontally; thus the rainbow produced by the large drops is is bright at its base. Near the top of the arc only small spherical drops produce the fainter rainbow.
What does a rainbow look like through dark glasses?
This is a "trick" question because the answer depends on whether or not your glasses are Polaroid. When light is reflected at certain angles it becomes polarized (discussed again quite well in Nussenzveig's article), and it has been found that the rainbow angle is close to that angle of reflection at which incident, unpolarized light (sunlight) is almost completely polarized. So if you look at a rainbow with Polaroid sunglasses and rotate the lenses around the line of sight, part of the rainbow will disappear!
Other Questions about the Rainbow
Humphreys (Physics of the Air, p. 478) discusses several "popular" questions about the rainbow:
"What is the rainbow's distance?" It is nearby or far away, according to where the raindrops are, extending from the closest to the farthest illuminated drops along the elements of the rainbow cone.
Why is the rainbow so frequently seen during summer and so seldom during winter?" To see a rainbow, one has to have rain and sunshine. In the winter, water droplets freeze into ice particles that do not produce a rainbow but scatter light in other very interesting patterns.
"Why are rainbows so rarely seen at noon?" Remember that the center of the rainbow's circle is opposite the sun so that it is as far below the level of the observer as the sun is above it.
"Do two people ever see the same rainbow?" Humphreys points out that "since the rainbow is a special distribution of colors (produced in a particular way) with reference to a definite point - the eye of the observer - and as no single distribution can be the same for two separate points, it follows that two observers do not, and cannot, see the same rainbow." In fact, each eye sees its own rainbow!!
Of course, a camera lens will record an image of a rainbow which can then be seen my many people! (thanks to Tom and Rachel Ludovise for pointing this out!)
"Can the same rainbow be seen by reflection as seen directly?" On the basis of the arguments given in the preceding question, bows appropriate for two different points are produced by different drops; hence, a bow seen by reflection is not the same as the one seen directly".
What are Reflection Rainbows?
A reflection rainbow is defined as one produced by the reflection of the source of incident light (usually the sun). Photographs of them are perhaps the most impressive of rainbow photographs. The reflected rainbow may be considered as a combination of two rainbows produced by sunlight coming from two different directions - one directly from the sun, the other from the reflected image of the sun. The angles are quite different and therefore the elevation of the rainbow arcs will be correspondingly different. This is illustrated in a diagram adapted from Greenler"s Rainbows, Halos, and Glories. The rainbow produced by sunlight reflected from the water is higher in the sky than is the one produced by direct sunlight.
What is a Lunar Rainbow?
A full moon is bright enough to have its light refracted by raindrops just as is the case for the sun. Moonlight is much fainter, of course, so the lunar rainbow is not nearly as bright as one produced by sunlight. Lunar rainbows have infrequently been observed since the time of Aristotle or before. A graphic description of one was writen by Dr. Mikkelson.
Rainbows and Proverbs
There is a delightful book by Humphreys entitled Weather Proverbs and Paradoxes. In it, he discusses the meteorological justifications of some proverbs associated with rainbows, such as "Rainbow at night, shepherd's delight;Rainbow in morning, shepherds take warning,"If there be a rainbow in the eve,It will rain and leave; But if there be a rainbow in the morrow It will neither lend nor borrow", and Rainbow to windward, foul fall the day; Rainbow to leeward, damp runs away."
The meteorological discussion Humphreys presents is appropriate for the northern temperate zones that have a prevailing wind, and also for a normal diurnal change in the weather.
William Livingston, a solar astronomer who has also specialized in atmospheric optical phenomena suggests the following: "Try a hose spray yourself. As you produce a fine spray supernumeraries up to order three become nicely visible. "Try to estimate the size of these drops compared to a raindrop. ..."Another thing to try. View a water droplet on a leaf close-up - an inch from your eye. At the rainbow angle you may catch a nice bit of color!"
In Minnaert's excellent book Light and Colour in the Open Air you can find a number of experiments on how to study the nature of rainbows. Here is an illustration of one of his suggestions. Other demonstration projects are listed here .
Determining whether TWS really is cancer, through you.
Number of letters in your name: This is more to do with what kind of people come to TWS more generic English names which are usually around 5 letters. Foreign names are longer than that. This can be linked to the population question where the American users are not treated as an extreme.
This is sometimes the case, but still doesn’t work because come on, obviously not all foreign names are a whole fucking sentence in themselves XD
Just with french for example, we can get names as short as Élie, Ines, Alix, medium size like Alizée or long like Annabelle, Emmanuelle, Anne-Marie, Mellyssandre
My point with names was that they'd be foreign therefore their English wouldn't be of a very good level, if you haven't noticed most of the world hates Americans (and the U.S in general) this would obviously lead to them creating conflict with those who are of American nationality, creating what we call a cancerous site.
Whether or not you live with your biological parents: Most children who live with their parents (especially those who live in MEDCs) are spoiled, therefore more cancerous, the ones who don't live with their biological parents are more likely to come here out of other reasons which differ from those who do live with their biological parents and range from depression to social interaction with people their age as they don't usually get a lot of contact with people who share their interests (as their friendship circle is small and doesn't allow a lot of variation)
I don’t see how people can be considered spoiled if they live with their biological parents. Some parents will treat their kids differently, wether (see what I did there? you better still respond ffs) or not they are biologically theirs and some adoptive or whatever parents can spoil their kids even more.
My point here is that your biological parents are going to spoil you way more than anyone else, (even the strictest of parents will do things that are for your betterment). You say that adoptive parents can spoil you as much as your biological parents, that generally is very untrue. These are the problems that can arise from living with adoptive parents:
- Interracial, skin color can make a child stand out and usually leads to mental isolation (this goes back to my point on alter egos)
- When you adopt a 3 year old (obviously there isn't a 3 year old using this website that's why I didn't mention it) there isn't a problem with them settling in, but when you talk about a 10+ year old difficulties arise because:
1 - This is the age that kids start to hit puberty and their behavioral patterns change drastically (this is why most adoptions don't work out)
2 - Change in culture, not to mention the parents have little to no knowledge about the childs background. This can range from the kind of meals they get to the type of society/neighbourhood they're brough into.
- Other members of the family (the adoptive parents real children) not everyone is acceptive to everything that happens around them, this can sometimes also break out into physical fights.
And yes, I did see what you did there. Very cheeky.
I’ll take the example of one of my closest friends who was adopted when she was around 2 because her bio mother in Romania wasn’t able to properly take care of her so she ended up in Canada. Her adoptive parents sent her to a private school, they go on vacations all the time and have a super cozy life now. I never realized she was adopted till she told me about it.
"When she was around 2" my point exactly, I talked about the influential ages above.
So whether you’re with your bio parents or not isn’t relevant to your cancerous level
Number of Siblings: Individuals with a lot of siblings will tend to escape from their family circle via the internet as they would get tired of having to deal with annoying siblings (in large families one child doesn't get as much attention as a child with 0-2 siblings does as the parents have less responsibility). The ones who live with more siblings will be more short-tempered as their daily lives have more contact with people, therefore making them more cancerous.
Now the logic with this just doesn’t work. You say that people who live with their biological parents are cancerous because “they’re spoiled” but people who are an only child are generally a lot more spoiled than those with many siblings. (Generalization ok)
They are spoiled, you said it yourself, your friend lives a 'cozy life'. In some case (very extreme cases) the adoptive parents spoil the kids way more than their real parents ever could, this of course is bad and very harmful.
When you have many siblings, it’s like living with your mini simulation of a real life society where you have to deal and collaborate with the others in the house. This means that in the long therm, your patience is supposed to be way more developed and you’re used to your siblings acting like immature little twats, so you would know how to act more civilized in a situation where people are acting immature on TWS
I said this before, and what you're saying here "where you have to deal and collaborate with the others in the house. This means that in the long term, your patience is supposed to be way more developed and you’re used to your siblings acting like immature little twats" agrees with what I'm trying to say. We have to realize that everyone comes to the internet to escape from their real-life, when someone who has to deal with something like annoying siblings everyday comes to the internet this is usually where they take their anger out, once again linking to my point on alter egos.
The population of your country: This is because people who live in places with a higher population are likely to have friends as they are generally exposed to a larger amount of people, that would make them more experienced with people which could create alter egos that could be cancerous (they always are), they come about because the human mind tries to escape from the daily routine by adding a little stimulation that the individual isn't used to experiencing (no one would go to a stranger and tell them to suck their dick).
Living in a country with a larger population has no impact on how many friends you have.
Ok so, when you live in a country with a higher population that usually means that you're school/workplace generally has more people in it and it is easier to break into a group of people who will become your friends. I know you talk about this below but I'm getting there.
First of all, sure what if I lived in a country of over 100 million people for example, but I stay in a city with only 50k people in it?
There isn't any country in the world that has a population of 100m and a city with a population of 50k.
Now we’re mostly teenagers here, so what if we went to a small school with not that many students in your class? The population of your country doesn’t necessarily have an impact on the number of people you’re exposed to
I get your point, but, In a school with a smaller amount of people everyone is more likely to get along since there would be a smaller community and everyone would be familiar with each other (as they would share a lot of classes, schools under a certain population usually close down because they can't afford a specific teacher for each students chosen subject when there are only like 7-18 students, moreover a school this small wouldn't offer very good education as the higher-ups are going to care very little about something that makes them minimal profit, if you're talking about a government school those are usually garbage in most countries.
Then there’s the fact that in most cases your number of friends has nothing to do with how you would act over the internet.
Here's a guy explaining his experience on friends, this is getting lenghty so I'm restricting how much I write.
I’m sorry but I didn’t quite catch what you meant when you said people with more friends create alter egos and all that..
Hopefully after reading my answer from above helped you understand, if it didn't just ask somewhere else since this is too long already.
So in conclusion, your idea of a test to see how cancerous people on TWS are was good,
but I don’t quite agree with the way you played it out since I don’t see how most of these questions relate to how you would act.
That's absolutely fine, I appreciate a whaman who can keep me talking.
A lot of them are things people can’t control (like your name or the population in your country, etc) and don’t have much to do with how people react on TWS
True but these are things (like the environment which you grew up in, which you also don't control) which shape who you become.
I would suggest to give people real situations and based on the way they say they would react (if it’s considered a “cancerous” response or not) give a certain point system like you did
If we did that we would be here until the Milkyway collides with Andromeda (4.5 billion years from now)
Not to mention people aren't going to give truthful answers to the questions to make themselves look good, what I did gives the test-taker anonymity, which is something that the internet is built on.
Holy fuck that was long..
I just wanted to express how I've been feeling recently part 2
2 days ago on Friday
I told a girl which i had a crush on that i liked her. That was such an emotional rollercoaster of a day. This girl is CONFUSING, so let's see the context if all this, her friends told me that she liked me, They always make jokes and say that we should be together, but i once gave her a philosophical essay in the form of a flower and she didn't say shit, This might mean that she was too shy to tell me anything or that she didn't care but most likely a mix of both.
The letter(shitty photos taken by my sis without my permission which have come in handy now that I'm reciting this story):
What was written in it (French):
"Tu m'as dit que tu "connais tes capacités" donc tu connais les choses que tu ne peux jamais faire, comme devenir astrophysicien par exemple. Je suis d'accord qu'il faut savoir ses capacités physiques et mentales mais je sais aussi que tu es capitale de faire beaucoup plus que tu imagine. Il faut pas te limiter, tu es intelligente. investit 2h(1h ey 45 min) de ta vie dans la lecture du livre dont je viens de te parler pour la 10ème fois et tu comprendras ce que je te raconte. Presque toutes les grandes personnes de l'histoire pensaient dans une façon similaires. C'est à cause de leur façon de penser qu'ils sont devenus des grandes personnes et pour apprendre cette façon de penser et comment le simuler, commence à lire le livre. Mon philosophe préféré a dit que nous n'avons pas trop peu de temps, mais nous en perdons beaucoup. La vie est assez longue ; elle suffirait, et au delà, à l'accomplissement des plus grandes entreprises, si tous les moments en étaient bien employés. Mais quand elle s'est écoulée dans les plaisirs et dans l'indolence, sans que rien d'utile en ait marqué l'emploi, le dernier, l'inévitable moment vient enfin nous presser : et cette vie que nous n'avions pas vue marcher, nous sentons qu'elle, est passée. Voilà la vérité : nous n'avons point reçu une vie courte, c'est nous qui l'avons rendue telle : nous ne sommes pas indigents, mais prodigues. J'espère que je pourrai suivre ces mots dans la future mais dans l'instant j'ai beaucoup d'habitudes mortelles. Il faut vivre sa vie correctement, lire des livres de philosophie est de devenir plus sage et de résumer les expériences non scientifiques des morts dans nos têtes pour les conserver. Je ne te dis pas de lire que cette livre mais de créer une habitude de lecture philosophique, PNL(programmation neuro-linguistique/autosuggestion) et en général des œuvres non romanesques.
-LUCIFER Beelzebub Satan"
Before i talk about how i told her that i liked her on Friday let me give you a summery of the circumstances surrounding that day... I got my pencil case stollen on the day where for the 1st time i kept in it a flashdrive along with a 50€+ piece which connects the flashdrive to my phone, and i had music on the flashdrive for an acrobatics play me and my friends had to prepare for sports class (90% of the work was done by me lolz). So when i arrived at school, that morning, and 2 girls told me that my backpack was open I gave my backpack and sports bag to school workers that open the door and welcome students in, i preceded to miss my 1st class running trying to find the pencil case, didn't find it, and whilst looking for it i traced my steps back home where my dad gave me 3 pens, I came back to school and after getting my things back at the schools aid room where you ask questions n' shit, I grabbed one of the pens and stabbed my hand 3 times so hard that it left 3 dents in my hand which started pouring out blood. I'm never gonna forget the horrified facial expressions when a kid saw me doing that with absolutely ZERO facial expressions of pain or discomfort on my face lols.
later on in the day i tried to cover them up with satanic drawings, which in my opinion looked cool and which might have made me look less shy whenth covering my face with my hands from shyness around the girl. You know because Satanists are hard?!? I still have left overs of that drawing and scars on my hand. Here's a pic that i took whilst telling all this to a friend yesterday about 24h from the initial infliction of the wound when about 50% of it was gone and heald:
Believe me that when using a pen you have to stab your hand REALLY hard to get it to bleed. Stabbing yourself is stupid. But it was because of frustration. It is better than cutting myself or banging my head on the wall. Well after loosing the bag and then the pencil case i was frustrated to the point where i did that, atleast it was a reasonable method of self harm, one that doesn't do much damage, the scars are already 70% gone. No big deal. If you want you should comment on the drawing not the stabbing, because it is annoying when people talk about shit like that and say "I'm worried about you" or "that's stupid", It is annoying so don't do it OK? It is my body and I'll do whatever stabbing, cutting, burning, hanging i feel necessary. Saturday night after going to the hospital i found out that i also broke my ribs after falling on my back during the acrobatics play which explains why i had a lot of stomach and back pain on Friday. So with a stabbed hand full of satanic drawings and broken ribs let us continue with what happened on Friday
So Friday we both were going to her place so she could give me things i missed whilst sick and absent from physics class on Tuesday. I was too anxious the whole way so didn't say much. We talked about anime, one punch man... i told her on the way that i had something to tell her but then told her something completely different because i was too shy and she was like "oh that was it?", then i said "no you'll see" and changed the subject. Ofcourse i never mentioned what i was going through, according to @Lucifer_ no one likes a "macho guy who hides his tears" which is what i am IRL but who cares i am me. Then we went to her place. I took photos of the papers then tried to waste time for like 2 min to get the courage to say it. This is when i told her, the exact phrasing of what i told her was. "I adore you and i think about you often but i was too anxious to say so" she turns around and asks me what did i just say, i repeat the same with a stutter at 'nervous'(meanwhile a big ass smile is on her face) then i tell her to have a nice vacation, she tells me likewise and i step out the house, all this in the span of like 35-50s so it was pretty quick. Her reaction was still confusing as always but i still feel like i accomplished something. Still not sure if she likes me or not but her facial expressions seemed to point to the latter.
I don't have any expectations that she might like me back or want to go out, that way i avoid disappointment. She might have wanted to tell me something or whatever but i just said bye so i can keep the feeling of accomplishment in case what she was gonna say was negative (but thar seemed unlikely from her facials expressions). That day was truly cancer so i just wanted to make it better. By the way alongside the "i have something to tell you"...(her)"that was it"...me "no you'll see" thingy which might have been creepy(don't know) is something from which comes my worst fear, that she was just nervously smiling because she thought I'd kill her, torture her and rape her lols. Because on the way to her house i asked her what she thought of me And she said "well you are nice and all but when you talk about ways of torturing people and stuff like that you come off as just a bit weird" And i am like "well i just do that to see the reactions of people I'm talking to"
I'm toooooootally not a psychopathic homicidal lunatic. I'm naaahhht(reference to this :
Ok the end. Weird follow up but still uplifting in some sorts. By the way i am working on replacing everything i lost, one of which are the 2 sticks, i cut a tree branch and started sculpting it to fit the desired proportions:
Now i just have to do the same again and I'd have gotten 1 thing out of the 10+ things i lost back. Oh right i also ordered some
Headphones that'll arrive in like 2 or 3 days. Life sucks but hey you only get 1 am i right? time to get my shit together. Right now after rereading this post and posting it whilst taking a break from organising my room because of the stomach pain I'm experiencing I'll just continue organising my room lols
Thanks for reading
Compilation of cut outs from $UICIDEBOY$ lyrics that i sing so much, making my throat hurt more than the make-shift nooses i try on:
"Leather belt around my neck feels soooo better than the rope i had before, the result's the same but now I'm comfy when i go"
"Locked in my room, 4 black walls, tie the noose, no recall, no resolve, fuck withdrawal, rather shoot up till i feel"
"I'm matter but i don't matter"
"Blood spilling in my motherfucking pimp cup
Used to love the bitch, now she sucking other dicks
So I cut my fucking wrists
Feel like a puddle of piss
$uicide, death of me who gives a fuck
"I am the Lord of loneliness
I'll hold my breath
Just spoke with death
He said he hopes for the best
Told him I'm ropin' my neck
Then I woke up chokin' from the hole in my chest
Somehow I manage to function and hope
Every day got a lump in my throat
That's them pills swallowed whole
Smoke a blunt and then fuck all these hoes
End up humpin' they throat
Get the fuck away from me
I hate all of you, faithfully
This world was never made for me
Thankfully I’m trained to see
Past all the lies and righteous sins
I'll shank my knees then walk the plank and freeze"
"Roll up and I'll light a fucking match to the gas, no gas mask
Make it splash and all of a sudden I'm getting ashes
Lasting more than I can fathom
Mass appeal is real it seems
Mass didn't appeal to me
Six, six, six
Wrists glisten cause of slits
Heads missing so I split
Driven apathy, actually traffic
No tragic car accidents happen
You're just a fucking blip
It only matters cause we're matter
Scattering around a hole that gets blacker"
If we're going to die why were we even created?
@sir-devil Now a counter-argument to my counter-argument. First, Won't economy collapse if something like Immortality was achieved?
Secondly, I wrote that statement with the assumption that we would be achieving immortality in our current state and in a way that every single human being in this world achieves it too. Something like that would be the least probable. Humans being an immortal from his origin or select Humans becoming Immortal is more probable than that. In the case the former, my original statement still stands and in the case of the latter, it would be a privilege, nothing of those matters there. Anyway, in case of a hypothetical situation anything goes, I guess?
Just a pic of me :)
Ok, this will probably get removed but here we go anyway:
I'm a professional statement analyst that analyses criminal and civil cases to detect deception. Let's start with the heading - "Just a pic of me", "Just" is a dependant word. When people use dependant words it means they're comparing the thought of something (in this case a pic) with something else/opposite. So, "just a pic of me", now tells me that this person in the picture is not the person who wrote this.
Next - "If anyone is down to chat with me, go ahead I'm a laidback girl and I'm currently bored :)" - "down to chat", this person has a strong sexual nature, however, is not interested in chatting. "Go ahead" suggests a strong opening, but does not tie in with the fact that "she" is laidback. - This is now the language of deception. This is not a female. "I'm currently bored", is used in this case as a verb, a doing word, as "she" is "currently" doing something. Bored is not a doing word. you ARE bored, you don't DO bored. This tells me now that this person is soon not going to be bored, however, it has nothing to do with chatting. Remember, the word "Just"? - She is now comparing the thought of being bored chatting with something else. They know later they may not be bored, but they do not want to chat.
