2022.01.26 23:05 angelofthehouse Films about Business

I am toying with the idea of proposing a class for undergraduate students on the way that business is portrayed in film. Films that I am considering include Wall Street, Working Girl, Glen Gary Glenross, The Wolf of Wall Street, Moneyball, The Big Short, Enron:The Smartest Guys in the Room, Too Big to Fail, Erin Brakovich, Silkwood, Norma Rae, The Pursuit of Happiness, andThe Devil Wears Prada. Clearly there could be rich discussion of gender, power, and economic structures represented in the films. But I am curious, if you had a bunch of non-English majors in a class like this, what criticism would you emphasize? Would you use different films? Give me your thoughts.

2022.01.26 23:05 thirstarchon Dad, you encouraged me to write.

This is the hardest thing I have ever had to write. To tell you who I am. I have struggled, for years, to be taken seriously by you. I love you and I know you love me. I know you want the best for me. I appreciate everything you have done, but I do struggle to open up to you. I don’t know how you’ll react. You taught me to be honest, and so I will be honest now.
For a long time, I wondered who I was. I felt like I was just latching on to the interests of the people around me. I felt like everyone had received a guidebook of social etiquette, and that somehow I had missed the memo. [Brother] has likened me, affectionately, to an alien that tries its best to mimic human behavior.
Growing up, I was acutely aware of gender roles and an expectation to perform femininity. After years of raising a son, you were excited to welcome a daughter. I was swaddled in pink and suppressed with social norms. How to sit, how to speak, how to dress.
I fought back, denouncing statements that I perceived as sexism, rejecting shorts above the knee and dresses and pink, before eventually trying on what was expected of me. And maybe it was enjoyable, in a sense, to put on a costume and feel accepted, like I was doing the “right thing.” But still, I would close my eyes as I brushed my teeth in front of the mirror, sit with the boys at lunch, and feel at home with them.
It was difficult to disentangle my feelings of resentment. Although many women are frustrated by sexism, misogyny, and the patriarchy, most do not respond to such feelings by wishing they were men. For years, I wished and wondered and lamented, and then begrudgingly resigned myself to my fate until I realized life could be different. I was the frog at the bottom of a well, looking up into a tiny circle of sky. I was a bird that didn’t dare to spread its wings because it didn’t know that it could fly.
I told Mom that I thought boobs were pointless, and that they were unnecessary sacks of fat. I rarely wore bras and slouched to hide my breasts. I did not want them to be seen. I wanted to forget that they were even there.
Dad, you named me 丹 after 王丹. I was proud to be named after a Chinese revolutionary, and both intrigued and delighted to be named after a man. Wang itself means king, and I took pride in that as well - specifically that it meant king, and not queen or royalty.
When I changed my display name to “Reginald” on Gmail, [brother] asked me why I didn’t choose a feminine name, and I didn’t have an answer for that. He calls me Reggie and Reg, and it feels more right than [deadname] ever did.
A few months ago, I cut my hair and got new glasses. I bought a chest binder, and am trying to undo years of poor posture. I shopped in the men’s section for the first time, and was so excited to be who I want to be. It’s incredible, in a sense, that all I had to do was see myself as a man to love the person in the mirror so much more.
I told my new friends in [city]. It’s easier when the stakes are low, when I can simply stay away if they react poorly. But for you, my family, I was scared. I’m sorry it took so long for me to tell you. I wanted to do it right. I want you to believe me, and to know that I’m still me, just happier and more comfortable.
You always liked to say, “You’re better lucky than good.” And now I am lucky. My name is Felix, and it means luck.
I am a trans man and your son.
[I first started working on this letter a few months ago because I didn't know how to come out. On Saturday, I told my brother I had something I wanted to show him, and asked if he wanted to see it before or after we went on a hike together. He got worried and kept asking what was wrong and called me, so I came out over the phone instead. Although his response was initially supportive, he begged me not to tell our parents. Now he is worried that I am traumatized and confused. It seems he is in denial. I never got to show him my letter, and I don't want to anymore because I'm afraid he will just pick it apart.
He said I can never tell my parents. That this would break them and affect their health. So here I am instead.
Dad likes to say that [brother] is his best son and that I am his best daughter. He also likes to ask if I'm happy and doing well. All things considered, Dad, I'm doing pretty well. Bro doesn't believe me, and I'm sure you and Mom will be devastated, but besides that I am happier as I am.]

2022.01.26 23:05 AttemptLit What Did You Think of Kirillov?

Surely Dostoevsky’s most ambiguous character (at least in my opinion).
Was he a genius? An idiot? A hero? A villain? An interesting character? A bland character?
It seems that half of the critics label him as Dostoevsky’s greatest creation and the other half label him as Dostoevsky’s most overrated character. Where do you stand?

2022.01.26 23:05 ChewyPinecone Vega treaded vs stock Vega?

Hey guys, have any of you tried the treaded Vega yet? How does it compare with the other treaded tires and also other tires in general? I know “anything is better than the stock Vega” but, while I’m going to at least TRY the stock Vega, coming from a pint I’m expecting it to suck and so I’m in the market looking for a new tire. I was intrigued by the treaded Vega, but honestly I kinda wonder what you guys’ favorite tires are.

2022.01.26 23:05 AFI563 Why is the community so awful?

Played a ranked game this morning as a jungler, every single lane shit the bed before I could even finish my clear and then start pinging me and blaming me for not being there. The game goes on and I get some ganks including a double kill in bot lane and start doing well and the enemy team steals dragon because their jungler is like 7/0 and I start getting flamed again, I try to ff at 15 someone declines and then our ADC starts telling all chat to report me for not surrendering when I literally started the vote. Why haven’t league players been locked in a lab and studied for the instantaneous brain damage this game inflicts on their ability to feel empathy? It’s so fucking soul crushing to have almost an entire team start flaming you for shit you didn’t even do and in fucking bronze no less.

2022.01.26 23:05 SceneUnited6393 Does this make me a bad Moon Knight fan?

I’ve been a big fan of Moon Knight in the last couple years. Slowly digging into all of his stuff. Just finished ‘The Bottom’ and I absolutely love the current run by Jed MacKay. I think I only like reading the character when he’s mr Knight and moon knight. What do you guys think?
Feel free to agree, roast, or whatever haha. I know some people might hate me for this

2022.01.26 23:05 Horukao Removing damage cap after a player leave is a terrible game design.

I don’t get why it works like this. The intent of the damage cap is to slow down games.
When a player leaves a game (not by dying obviously). The game is automatically speeded up. Unfortunately after the first round a ghost is played the damage cap is turned off which speeds up the game even faster.
This game mechanic shouldn’t work like this and the damage cap should be turned off only when a player dies.

2022.01.26 23:05 tongue_dart Having Trouble Getting Going

I made a post a week ago about "the end" etc. I'm sure anyone my age knows this is bullshit. There's an infinite number of ends. I drank again, and honestly I have every day since that post. I'm not sure how to stop drinking. Period. It's that simple. I brought up going to a rehab to keep myself away from booze or any temptation but was kind of poo poo'd on that. I drank today but I feel like I'm fine, my wife acknowledged I'm fine today, but her issue is it's a wildcard. Sure I'm fine today, what about last weekend, what about the next time I have to pick you up from jail. Today I went to a bar for absolutely no reason. Now I have a pissed off wife and for what, to chill and have a few afternoon drinks? How do you get past this point?

Hi, can someone explain Exclus to me? I get what Inclus is, basically “accept any and all identities,” but what is Exclus, and more importantly, why are you Exclus? Like what about it do you think is better than being Inclus?

Just randomly thinking .. but couldn’t Bruce Wayne have saved a lotta Headache if he paid more to the bribed cops and all the bad stuff wouldn’t have happened?

2022.01.26 23:05 Leafye Pathos

Em cada esquina da vida, vejo a mesma senhora a tricotar.
Na sua cadeira de balanço, leva um fio atrás do outro, em valsa nunca antes vista por tecelões, como se revivesse os seus tempos de bailarina — dançam os pontos ao som de Shostakovich, unem-se os cordões pelo coração da senhora, batem no mesmo ritmo tão assustadoramente divino.
Saberão os deuses se alguma vez a vi pela primeira vez! Para mim, esteve sempre lá; talvez mais nova num dia, mais cansada noutro — de olhos fechados, sempre, como quem deles já não precisa.
Há tardes ensolaradas em que me sento à sua beira, naquele pequeno pedacinho de mundo em que habita, e permito-me existir com ela. Viajo com o subir e descer das agulhas; deixo-me embalar na melodia que a envolve, e que faz vermelhas as suas bochechas cheias, tingindo-as de um passado que talvez só exista em lembranças.
E canta feliz — sempre feliz, muito embora vítima de um mundo que não escolheu, do qual conhece todo o pouco que há para conhecer. É o mal de se viver numa esquina da vida, num pequeno momento congelado no tempo.
Sei que estará sempre lá, frágil idosa sem nome, à minha espera!, envolta na sua tão tenra ária, toda ela de memórias feita. São também estas incertas; vive na dor de não saber lembrar. Foi como a conheci, e assim estará fadada a existir, que já não tenho a liberdade de a socorrer. É pura. Sempre o será.
Não é a minha única companhia. Visito outros antigos amigos, tantos deles moribundos já — alguns que, às vezes, por serem tão bons espelhos de mim mesma, desejo não ter conhecido. Um pecador que pela última vez confessa; um louco que morre por dentro; muito mais sandeus do que consigo contar, por ter sido eu todos eles, e por serem eles ainda parte de mim.
Eternizei-os! As boas e as más partes do meu imo — eternizei-as por completo, aos meus algozes e aos meus paladinos, por ter deitado aos seus pés as minhas palavras, o bem mais precioso de qualquer escritor.
E assim, nas esquinas da vida, vou de encontro às dez mil faces do meu mesmo alter ego — por não haver nada mais mortalmente reles do que ser-se uno! —, que nunca uma única história contei sem lá deixar parte do meu ser.
Não os criei, mas existem, talvez desde antes de sempre; acolhi-os e contei as suas histórias, nas pequenas esquinas da vida em que me encontraram estes dez mil alter egos, as dez mil partes do meu coração.

2022.01.26 23:05 imnotsurethatsnotok Anything but a Tesla?

Hey all, I am looking to get an EV here in Australia in next 3 months where our options are somewhat limited.
Have test driven a Tesla and liked it very much but I just can’t bring myself to buy anything associated with Elon Musk.
What would you all recommend as an alternative? For context, I drive circa 50/60k a year for work, so I need a lot of range, and am looking for a comfortable sedan that can double as a large family car on weekends.
Any suggestions gratefully received.

2022.01.26 23:05 JRTHEDUDE Should I call her?

Me and my girlfriend of about a year and a couple months broke up in October. We were on a break for a month before this and the break killed me inside. She was away at college while I was back home at a community college. She told me she needed to figure out who she was as a person and that she still loved me. It was the healthiest relationship I have ever been in and it was the healthiest break up as well. I told her to call me when she’s ready to love again and that I’d wait as long as I had to for her. A month after we broke up one of my old highschool friends called and asked me to come smoke with her and her friends at her apartment. I didn’t even smoke as I was still so sad about my ex and smoking makes me over think a lot. But long story short this girl (space) friend from high school was super drunk and asked me to take her to get more alc. so I did and then I dropped her back off and went home. The next day I wake up and check all my exs socials as I always do and I was blocked on every single one. I come to find out that the girl I was hanging out with the night before had told all of her friends that we fucked in her car. This of course gets to my ex who’s at college and hour and a half away. I called texted her begging to believe me that I didn’t have sex with this girl but still it was her word against mine. We had been on bad terms ever since then as there was no way I could prove to her that I didn’t fuck this girl. Then on january first 2022 I get a text from my ex asking to end the bad blood so I called her and we were on the phone for 2 hours catching up and chatting about how college was going. It was amazing to talk to her again. It was like nothing had even changed between us. She said that we shouldn’t have too much contact before she hung up and that really hurt. She texted me a couple weeks later complimenting me on the music I make and said it sounds good. That put a huge smile on my face just to see that she still cares enough to listen to my music. I thanked her and that was that.
2 nights ago I’m taking a test online and my phone starts ringing i was so shocked to see her name was calling I texted her and said I would call her in 15 minutes after I finished my test. Before I could finish the test she texted back and said that she just wanted to see how I was doing, but then she said she had to go to bed and that maybe she would call tomorrow. But the next day that call never came. I don’t know what to do now. I want to call her so bad. But I’m scared to. I don’t know why she called if she misses me or if she wanted to get something off her chest or maybe she just accidentally called. I really just don’t know. So should i call her? or just wait in hopes that another call will come eventually?
