Why I Can't Stand Overbreeders

World News Reddit - 1 hour 28 min ago

To be totally honest I have no respect for a woman who continually decide to bare child after child with no care for our planet. We no longer face extinction people so I see absolutely no good reason to have that many children to just one family. If anything we are ruining our planet by overpopulation which will ultimately bring us to extinction. The world is currently so overpopulated that we're driving over 50 species of plants and animals to extinction every day, destroying rain forests many times faster than they can regenerate and in some areas consuming fresh water 10 times faster than it is being replenished. For several years, population has been increasing faster than many vital non-renewable and renewable resources. This means the amount of these resources per person is declining, in spite of modern technology. You'd think it would be perfectly logical for parents to be interested in helping to ensure a better world for their children. And yet each new birth makes the earth a more crowded, polluted, unhealthy place for babies - and the rest of us - to live in. And I don't want to hear it's none of my damn business how many kids you decide to have and that you pay your bills. What the fuck does any of that matter to the big picture? You clearly are so small-minded and uneducated that you do not see the big picture. Who is going to provide your offspring with food? As I'm sure most of you do not raise your own livestock and have a farm in which you can provide your own family with food without going to the grocery store. And on top of that, what do you do with all that food that is wasted? I'm sure the majority of you do not have a food waste disposer and end up throwing your food in the trash. Well what do you think happens when you do this..? Could it be that the food you are wasting in ending up in landfills? Don't you know what happens to food when it sits in a landfill like that? It can produce methane gas which ultimately also adds to destroying our planet. $18 million disposable diapers are thrown away every year and will remain in landfills 300 years from now. It costs taxpayers $350 million annually to dispose of them. During the course of your child's lifetime the average American will use 18 tons of paper, 23 tons of wood, 16 tons of metal, and 32 tons of organic chemicals. All that emits to 20 metric tons of carbon dioxide for every year of your child's life. Secondly, most of you do not run and operate your own family business in which your offspring could obtain a job when they are old enough to. Most likely your child will be looking outside of your family for work, in which we the people will have to provide. As technology advances there are less and less jobs out there for the human race. People are having a hard time finding a decent job as I type. What do you think is going to happen when your child grows up? Thirdly, I'm sure most of you also will not be able to provide your child with a piece of land for themselves when they grow up and move on from the nest. They most likely will have to shop in the real-estate market for a piece of land from yet again we the people of the United States. We are already running out of land as it is. Where is everything, and everyone going to go? What, were just going to keep taking more land away from the animals so you could live a life most people don't approve of? I personally think animals belong on this planet more than we do. We destroy our own planet, I don't see animals doing the same. Plus, nobody needs a study to prove it's not just sex and contentment that suffer when people have babies. There's also the social life, the sleep and many of their own dreams. And all for what? You never know what might come out of the womb. Sure the kid might be a Clinton, or even Al Gore - someone who might help improve a place that gets more and more screwed-up the more people we cram into it. But chances are infinitesimally higher that the kid won't be a future president of the United States or a true genius. It's more likely your child will be a criminal. Making matters worse, having a kid is a huge-scale act of selfishness, if your ask me. They have kids because they want to add something to a life that doesn't feel full otherwise. They want a permanent cure for feelings of loneliness. They want to imbue their lives with a sense of purpose and meaning. They want to make sure someone will be around to take care of them when they get old. They want to have someone to pass their own thwarted dreams and ambitions on to - or at least their DNA. And I think they should think twice, then twice again, before they do that. I also personally think that instead of parents getting taxes back for having a child that it should be the opposite. I think that people who have 3 or more children should have to pay a tax every year to even have that child. This country is so much in a debt crisis that all that money the government collects from the taxing of children will help alleviate the debt. Now don't get me wrong, I'm not calling for people to stop procreating all together. But please, for the sake of humanity, keep the numbers down.

Norway apologises to its World War Two 'German girls'

World News Reddit - 1 hour 28 min ago

This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 69%. (I'm a bot)

AFP Norway's Prime Minister Erna Solberg has issued an official government apology to Norwegian women who were mistreated over World War Two-era relationships with German soldiers.

Up to 50,000 Norwegian women are thought to have had intimate relationships with German soldiers.

The women who had relationships with the soldiers became known by the nickname the "German Girls", and were targeted for reprisals in Norway when the war ended - standing accused of betraying the country.

"Young Norwegian girls and woman who had relations with German soldiers or were suspected of having them, were victims of undignified treatment," Ms Solberg said at an event to mark the 70th anniversary of the UN's Universal Declaration of Human Rights on Wednesday.

His mother, Else Huth from Sarpsborg was just 22 in 1944 when she fell in love with a 25-year-old German soldier.

About 10-12,000 children are thought to have been born as a result of relationships between Norwegian women and German soldiers.

Crime-scene investigators search Saudi consul's home in Jamal Khashoggi case

World News Reddit - 1 hour 29 min ago

This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 59%. (I'm a bot)

ISTANBUL - Turkish crime-scene investigators searched the home of the Saudi consul general in Istanbul Wednesday in the disappearance of Saudi writer Jamal Khashoggi.

As Saudi Arabia's green national flag flapped overhead, forensics teams entered the residence, located slightly more than a mile from the consulate where Khashoggi vanished Oct. 2 while trying to pick up paperwork to get married.

It was the second-such extraordinary search of a site considered sovereign Saudi territory under international law.

The latest search, of the residence, came 15 days after Khashoggi's disappearance - and after police apparently thought they would be able to conduct the search on Tuesday.

Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said Saudi officials had halted that search, claiming that Consul General Mohammed al-Otaibi's family was still there.

Pompeo told reporters to be "Mindful" of the meaning of the Saudi relationship in the region.

Google’s new long game: 100% clean energy all the time - Buying enough clean energy to make up for all the dirty energy you’re using is one thing

World News Reddit - 1 hour 30 min ago

This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 86%. (I'm a bot)

No surprise: Google is a gigantic energy hog, but it's also currently the world's largest buyer of renewable energy, in its various forms-over 3 gigawatts-according to a March report by Bloomberg New Energy Finance.

With its sizeable purchase of renewables, Google says it's currently matching all of its total energy use with clean energy sources.

When you hear a company like Google say, "We're 100% renewable energy," it usually means that it is, on balance, buying as much clean, renewable energy as it is consuming unclean, non-renewable energy in a given year.

Many companies sign virtual power-purchase agreements whereby they buy renewable energy credits, financial instruments that certify that a certain amount of green energy has been added to the electric grid.

"Achieving 100% renewable energy is just the beginning," Michael Terrell, Google's head of energy market development, told me.

Buying enough clean energy to make up for all the dirty energy you're actually using is one thing, but matching energy needs with clean energy resources all day, every day is quite another.

[Online][5E][Astral Tabletop][Tuesday][EST][Homebrew]Looking for Players for campaign each Tuesday

World News Reddit - 1 hour 31 min ago

Welcome Adventurers to the wondrous lands of Infernia, a homebrew world that's inspired from the Forgotten Realms.

900 years have passed since the lands of Infernia survived the Dawn War and creatures that fought for the gods have found new lands to settle. With much of the Old World in ruins and corrupted, progress is slow and tedious.

With the ending of the War of the Five Kings and with the Thyner Gate's closing, the demonic forces that once spew fore from them, are thrown back into the 9 hells from where they once came. The gods have retreated back beyond the Golden Veil to regather their strength and rely on their champions to carry out their wishes. Now is the time for mortals such as yourself, to safeguard the lands of Infernia.

The Campaign will be weekly each Tuesday starting from 7:00 PM EST to 12:00 PM EST.
I only allow Non-UA Offical classes and races, players has a choice of either to use point buy or standard array. We will be using Discord as our main voice chat and using Astral Tabletop for our maps and player sheets.

The Campaign will begin at level 1 and the starting town will be determined on what everyone's race is. A backstory would be nice, even a short one. No PC can make a character that is inherit unfriendly and aren't willing to get along with a group. I am not going to break my back trying to get your character to stay in the group. you must be willing to do that yourself.

Is Fiat Money dead? It seems all the financial institutions are lining themselves up to get involved in blockchain.

World News Reddit - 1 hour 32 min ago

A bull run is on its way, in my opinion. So, I wonder is Fiat Money dead? Is Cryptocurrency Money 2.0? Are Crypto-Assets the new stocks and shares? The financial institutions are getting involved. More will follow. Once profits start getting made a flood of institutional investors will get involved. Mass adoption is being implemented. World wide blockchain integration is taking place. The blockchain industry will only grow.
