2022.01.17 03:53 rikinaynay My mom explained racism to me in the best way. Hear me out

The year was 1988, I was 4 and didn’t understand race. I was obsessed with octopi. I asked her why was MLK jr was killed.
Her answer was this…
Do you love the different octopi that you study?
Me- yeah I don’t care what they look like! I love them all. Even the ones they haven’t discovered.
Mom- why? They are all so different.
Me- but they’re all so good.
Mom- so are humans!
Me- no that’s different!
Mom- how?
Me- they’re skin color is different?!
Mom- octopi skin is different! Are you going to prefer one over the other?
Me- no they’re all octopi!
Mom- exactly. What’s different about humans and octopi?
Me- mind blown. I got it! We’re all human. It doesn’t matter what we look like on the outside.
I hope all of my fellow humans are feeling loved today.

2022.01.17 03:53 woods48465 Injured. Do I continue bulk?

Hurt myself at work and have my left arm in a sling doctor said 4 weeks before I can consider getting back in the gym. I still have about 5 pounds left on my bulk. Should I continue bulking if I do a hacked together abs and leg routine 3 times a week or just stop bulking and eat at maintenance.

2022.01.17 03:53 hailec09 Targeted griefing in low elo?

Hi all, just started the new season and have experienced a crazy amount of targeted griefing, having never experienced it in other seasons.
When I say targeted griefing, I mean Yuumis loading in and running down into enemy nexus. Nunu supports stalking junglers and smiting their creep, or TF's running down the lane and feeding the mid.
I don't mean they're bad players... they're intentionally feeding the enemy team, or ruining lane for their teammates. Is there some other motive to this? I was just laning with a Tristana who kept leaping into the enemy backline, spawning, and doing it again. Never took cs.
Just trying to understand if there's a reason I'm not seeing...

2022.01.17 03:53 apole2308 Makeup looks different

I applied makeup in my bathroom, looks ok, leave the bathroom and look at myself in different lighting. Hideous. How did I let myself go out like that. Makes me not want to wear makeup ever, is this what everyone experiences or am I just exceptionally bad at makeup?

2022.01.17 03:53 TYhungry Where should I position my desk in this room layout?

Where should I put my desk? I have a hunch of what works best but I'm curious if there is a better configuration. The room layout is here. My desk is 60” by 30” and my webcam is a Logitech C922 Pro Stream (which unlike the C920, doesn’t have auto light correction). I’m constantly on video calls for work so lighting and backdrop matter to me, among other things. I’m definitely overthinking this but asking for opinions anyway, in case there’s an option I’m missing!
Option 1 - Desk along wall with Ethernet
Lighting (when on video): C- Background (when on video): B View (mine): B Ethernet access: A Orientation to room entrance: A-
Comments: Having the room door not be directly behind me is convenient if my wife needs to poke her head in for a quick message while I’m on a call, etc. In this position, with my webcam and the lighting, I am very backlit and thus my face is really hard to see, even with the window closed (which I’m forced to keep closed all the time). I purchased an Elgato keylight to remedy the lighting, but it is not only a bit blinding, but it constantly disconnects from my router (I believe a 2.4Ghz / 5Ghz band issue).
Option 2 - Desk along wall with sliding doors
Lighting (when on video): A Background (when on video): F View: A Ethernet access: B+ Orientation to room entrance: D
Comments: This gives me the best view outside and the best lighting conditions for my face on video conference calls. The tricky part is that I’d be essentially sharing my entire back of my head/posture/chair, setup, monitor, etc. because the closet doors behind me are full mirrors. I’d also probably have to opt for the left corner when facing the sliding door, because I’d be blocking the sliding door entrypoint if I am in the right corner. Also, not a huge fan of having the room entrance behind me.
Option 3 - Desk along wall with window
Lighting (when on video): B Background (when on video): A- View: B- Ethernet access: D Orientation to room entrance: D
Comments: My window view is a blank fence between me and my neighbor. Not a huge fan of having to string a very long Ethernet cord that would eventually have to cut one of the two doors.
Option 4 - Desk at an angle between Ethernet wall and sliding doors
Lighting (when on video): B- Background (when on video): A View: B+ Ethernet access: A Orientation to room entrance: B
Comments: This is probably the strongest option if not for my huge desk occupying an awkward portion of the middle of the room since it isn’t an L-shape. I’d like to be able to use this as a guest room if needed, and I’m not so sure how much space there would be for me to lay an air mattress down with the desk jutting out so much. Also, the asymmetry would slightly annoy me.
