2021.09.20 04:39 ribotin Religious Draconian Drug Legislature Objectively Yields the Greatest Utilitarian Benefit to Society
To illustrate the point, the Taliban's war on drugs was called the most effective in human history. Although it was known as the world's drug capital, it only took their ban one year before drugs effectively vanished from the country, a superlative that secularism has not matched. In spite of religious draconian methods, it it objectively superior over time. People harmed by drug bans vanish as new addicts decrease over time.

2021.09.20 04:39 santaanawinds2017 what do you do if you find yourself triggered in a meeting?
Im sure it was rude to 'walk out' by turning off my camera but i didnt know how to deal.
The lead tonight shared his story and the contents were incredibly triggering because of my past traumas.
I get that everyone has a past and thats no one elses problem except for the people directly hurt.
I get that everyone has the right to share their story when invited to and thats fine. But there was no warning it was just right in my face and now i want to drink bad. I was having a good sober day until then.
What am i supposed to do in this situation? I hated to be rude but didnt know wht else to do.
Its my 19th day in AA. I still dont know my ass from my elbow here.
If anyone can advise thatd be great. But my sponsors busy today and cant talk, or else id try talking to her.

2021.09.20 04:39 FeelingEmu6671 I (21m) don't feel valued in my relationship with my girlfriend (21F) How can I communicate these feelings to her?
Now, I have to be really careful the way I word myself in this post because from what I've noticed words can get misconstrued if you don't say them with one-hundred-percent intention on this website.
So I will explain myself from the beginning, I met my girlfriend of 1 1/2 years over social media. can't go into specifics on what social media site that is in case she has a Reddit account. We met at the beginning of the pandemic so we had nothing but free time to talk to each other. To get to know each other better, and it turns out we have a lot of things in common. so we hit it off and we really enjoy each other's company. Unfortunately we learned that we are relatively long distance but not in the way that you would think, we live an hour away from each other by car. So if we wanted to see each other in person it would need to be planned a little bit in advance. Besides, her family members are pretty toxic and they don't know about our relationship yet. She has stressed that us meeting during a pandemic isn't really the best idea since I am in a densely populated area. We're All vaccinated but Her family still wants her to be cautious since she lives with them. So for now we're just really gonna hang out in Discord calls, and find ways to spend time with each other through long distance means.
Now here is where the problem comes in, over the past couple of months we started to develop our Social Circle because of social media. Meaning we started to have our friend group expanded exponentially, I started to introduce her to some of the people that I knew & Vice versa and it just kind of took off from there. Now we have a fairly large friend group that we can talk to about anything and play video games with. We talk to them over Discord regularly, and when I Say regularly I mean REGULARLY. Like every day we spend in that server talking to everyone else in it. So much so to the point where I cannot remember the last time that me and her actually spent alone time together.
I'm pretty sure you can see where the problem is now coming in. We literally spent every waking moment with these people. And I love them and I value them immensely but the problem comes in where I'm not able to actually spend any kind of alone time with my significant other. Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays are all spent on the server talking to our friends as a group. The only time that we actually get alone together is Friday. and sometimes that's not even guaranteed with the way that her family members are very prone to shoehorn themselves into our affairs. We actually start our date nights at like 7pm in the afternoon because that's the time that her family members don't need her for miscellaneous tasks. So realistically I only get alone time with her from 7 p.m. to 1 a.m. on a Friday. So I am only relegated to 6 hours out of the week,
Here's the part that hurts a lot though, she is more willing to spend alone time with other people in the friend group way more than me. because she says she has to be an open ear for our friends. Now I will admit I'm a very selfish individual when it comes to relationships but I completely understand And will do my utmost to accommodate the need for social connection. But it kind of Trades over a line when other people have more value than I do in the relationship. I'm not so egotistical to the point where I believe I should be the center of her attention 24/7 but at the very least I feel like I should get more than a few hours in one day Out of one day in the week.
I recently got a job, and I wasn't able to actually be there for 90% of the Discord calls that would usually go down in a week. and lo and behold when I pulled Myself Away To focus on my job that's when she found The Willpower to spend alone time with me other than Friday. She brought up the idea of playing video games with me and she hasn't done that in over a month. I don't want to have to go down a toxic ass path of intentionally ignoring her so I can feel valued in the relationship.
So reddit, what the hell do you think I should do? Should I just tough it out until the end of the pandemic when I can actually go see her in person more often? Or should I find a way to tactfully bring up this issue with her?
Tldr; my significant other spends a large amount of time with people in our friend group and I'm only relegated to 6 hours on a Friday. I feel underappreciated. How do I convey this message to her?

2021.09.20 04:39 jgkog Das Licht am Ende des Tunnels
Ich sehe einen fernen Lichtpunkt.
Jenen am Ende des Tunnels.
Noch ist es still, doch es wird schon bald etwas gewaltiges geschehen.
Mit einem Klicken hinter mir wird es in Gang gesetzt.
Endgültig, von hier gibt es kein Zurück.
Ein Sekundenbruchteil Stille, dann ein Lautes Krachen.
Die Zerstörung wird freigesetzt.
Ich spüre Hitze hinter mir.
Es drängt mich nach vorne zum Licht.
Ich werde gejagt von der Hitze und zugleich treibt sie mich an.
Endlich, das Licht, ich erreiche es.
Ich fliege aus dem Tunnel heraus.
Aus dem Licht wird jetzt der helllichten Tag.
Die Hitze hinter mir ist kaum noch zu spüren, immer schneller entferne ich mich von ihr.
Diese Geschwindigkeit gefällt mir.
Ich lasse mich noch weiter in den Tag, noch weiter in die Freiheit schleudern.
Ich rase durch die Welt.
Alles ist drunter und drüber und es dreht sich.
So schnell zieht alles an mir vorbei.
Der Gegenwind ist kühl und frisch, belebend nach dieser erdrückenden Hitze.
Ich zerwirble rücksichtslos den Morgendunst der die Luft in den Sonnenstrahlen glitzern lässt.
Dann sehe ich es, das Hindernis dass mich unweigerlich zum Halt bringen wird.
Ich rase darauf zu, unaufhaltsam.
Ein unausweichlicher Zusammenstoss der meinem Freiheitstrip ein jähes Ende bereitet.
Ich pralle auf, nein bohre mich hinein.
Diese Wärme und diese Dunkelheit, sie umgeben mich schon wieder.
Ich muss es weiter schaffen, ich muss mich hindurch pressen, mich verformen, mich durchquetschen.
Doch es reicht nicht, ich bin wieder gefangen in der Dunkelheit.
Diesmal ist kein Licht in der Ferne.
Jemand anders sieht jetzt ein Licht am Ender des Tunnels.
Ein kleiner leuchtender Punkt umringt von pechschwarzen Wänden.
Ein Tunnel der immer länger wird.
Ein Tunnel dessen Lichtpunkt sich immer weiter vom Betrachter entfernt.

2021.09.20 04:39 Blak_dice [PS4] LFG Looking for team to play with consistently
Looking for intelligent players to play with consistently. PS5 or PS4 preferred so we can turn off cross play to avoid the hackers. Typically play almost every day. from 6 PM EST to 2 AM at the latest and anytime on weekends. I am down to join an existing group or create one with folks we meet here. I consider myself pretty good at the game and able to get double digit kills or near that consistently. Here's some old highlights. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mdHN4IAw7d0 I am better now then this video shows but I was never a slouch. Below are the do's and don'ts that will allow us to mesh and be an EXCELLENT team. You can read below but long story short im looking for experienced folks that play often. I have 100 + BR Wins and get 5 kills on my bad games 10 + on my good ones.
Have at least a 1 KD. You don't have to be a cracked psycho but some level of sweat and skill is good. 1 KD at least shows me you contribute. KD isn't everything though.
Use rotation strategy. Cut off teams that are waiting too long to get to zone. Think ahead and put yourself in position to hold teams and not get held. Success is all about positioning.
Communicate. Tired of people that think their too good to use coms. If you see a team call it out don't be so kill greedy that you turn an easy team wipe into you and your squad mates getting melted unnecessarily. Good comms is a must be descriptive. right here, right here is not comms.
Play the numbers. If it's Quads and your the only squad mate alive with a friend in the Gulag know when to bail out and go for the rez or grab the right contract. Too many people go straight for a Most Wanted when you can grab a supply run and bring back team mates easily
Focus on kills AND Wins. I prefer the scav bounty bounty bounty strategy. I'm all about positioning. Sometimes its best to avoid a fight to set yourself up for final zone. We are not going to camp in the middle of the map but sometimes you have to know when to hold a power position.
Focus on teammates and not thirsting. If someone is down look for the squad mates dont immediately thirst!
Be an adult. No 13/15 yr old kids blabbering nonsense endlessly
Push a team thats in the gas. This is the most idiotic thing ever. If you have zone simply wait until they exit cover than light them up.
Automatically shoot everything you see. A quick moment could be the difference between dropping someone in the open and giving them time to get to cover.
Revive while there is a threat. Know when to rez and when to play your life/ kill the threat.
Go off and do random shit. I get looting etc. but there's no reason for the squad to be spread out > 100 meters unless you doing a specific task. Landing by yourself off rip will make me quit the game and block you
Push like an idiot, flank with cover, down one or two before you go in. Crossing an open field to push a squad of 4 because you downed one person is never smart.
Here is a couple games with my old mates that feels like a quality match. Solid kill numbers with good decision making.

2021.09.20 04:39 sharddblade What database does ClickUp use?
This is a technical/internal question. I’ve noticed that changes in ClickUp often take a few seconds to become applicable. In some cases, the culprit seems to be frontend change detection, but in other cases, if I add a tag, a coworker may not see that tag for several seconds even after a refresh, i.e. there doesn’t seem to be strong consistency. All that to say I’ve been curious about which database ClickUp uses under the hood?

2021.09.20 04:39 AlabamaUnsolved The Questionable Death of Ashley Watkins
On December 9th, 2018, Ashley Watkins was paranoid. Diagnosed with bipolar disorder and PTSD, she had also been using methamphetamine, which exacerbated her symptoms. Adam, her longtime friend, states that she showed up at his house unexpectedly, and asked him to “take the GPS” off her car. She borrowed his phone and made a few calls, then left in her mother’s beige 2001 Toyota Corolla. Her mother, Carol Oettle, has been trying to piece together what happened next ever since.
Carol last saw Ashley, 30, on November 30th, 2018. Like many mothers and daughters, their relationship was tumultuous at times, but they never stayed angry for long. That day, they had a disagreement and Ashley left the home they shared in Columbus, MS for the last time. Ironically, the disagreement occurred when Ashley was getting ready to leave the home and Carol asked her to stay. She had been seeing a Fayette County, Alabama man, Ricky, and she began living with him after leaving Carol’s home. His mother had been staying connected with Carol, and on Sunday, December 9th, she let Carol know that Ashley was not at their house and had not been there since Saturday night. On Monday, December 10th, Carol notified the police department that her daughter was missing. She feels as if her report was not taken seriously because she told them up front that Ashley was bipolar, unmedicated and on meth. On Wednesday, December 12th, Carol filed an official missing person report. On Saturday, December 15th, she found that the report was never entered into the system. After not knowing where her daughter was for six days, Carol finally began to get somewhere.
Ashley and Adam had been close friends and even roommates at one time. He was home on the morning of December 9th when she drove up with her dog, Bean. It was cold that day and she was wearing jeans and shoes. Adam states that she seemed to have been “up for a while,” possibly using methamphetamine for several days. He recalls that she was very paranoid that day, and she thought her mother was spying on her. As mentioned earlier, she asked Adam to remove the GPS from her car. When this proved to be impossible, she asked him for a ride. Adam, who has been sober for over 2 years now, openly admits that he could not give her a ride because he had already been drinking that day. Ashley did not have a phone, so she borrowed his to call a couple of people, asking them to help “hide her car.” She told him that she was going to see a female friend, Joy, and then she was going to see a male acquaintance, Kenny. Adam gave Ashley his last $5 for cigarettes, and she drove away. Later that evening, Ricky’s mother notified Carol that Ashley had never made it back to her house.
Over the course of the next week, Carol did everything right. She searched on her own. She notified Fayette County law enforcement that Ashley was missing, she filed an official missing person report, she hung fliers, and she blasted Facebook with a campaign to help find her missing daughter. Ashley had previously lived in Carlsbad, New Mexico with her ex-husband, so Carol called the authorities in Carlsbad and asked them to check and make sure Ashley wasn’t there. This is when she learned that Ashley’s information had never been entered and there was no BOLO issued for her. She recalls the Fayette County investigator assigned to Ashley’s case saying that she was strung out, that she was around and that he had talked to people who had seen her. Despite her insistence that she be told specifics of who had seen Ashley and where, these requests were never honored. At this point, Carol contacted Tuscaloosa County law enforcement and they began to actively investigate Ashley’s disappearance.
For the next two weeks, Carol continued to frantically look for her daughter; however, no credible leads surfaced. Then, on January 1st, 2019, things began to move at lightning speed. A family friend, Chris, stated that an acquaintance had come to his house and told him that she thought she had Ashley’s wallet. Unfortunately, this woman allegedly also suffers from drug addiction, and she could not remember when Ashley had been there to leave the wallet. Chris notified Carol and her ex-husband of the discovery and turned it into the police. The next day, January 2nd, Ashley’s car was found in Tuscaloosa County.
At first, the hunter thought nothing of the Toyota parked on Blue Creek Road. But when he returned the next week and saw it still sitting there, he remembered Ashley’s missing person fliers and called it in. Blue Creek Road is 12 miles from Adam’s house, and it is a rural, forested area. Carol states that this was a place Ashley would frequently park her car when she was going to be riding with someone else. When police arrived, they found Ashley’s car locked. Bean’s full water and food dish were in the car, along with all of Ashley’s clothes. There were no drugs found in or around the car. Her keys were never found.
Around 1:30 pm that day, Ashley was found 2 miles from her car. She was barefoot and wearing a summer dress. She was lying on her back, and Bean was beside her. He ran away when officers approached. There were no drugs or drug paraphernalia on scene. Bean was located a couple of days later, well fed and in perfect health. Ashley was sent to the Alabama Department of Forensic Sciences for autopsy. The medical examiner determined her date of death to be January 2nd. Her toxicology report showed a high level of methamphetamine and a therapeutic level of Elavil, which was a prescribed medication. Her cause of death was listed as mixed drug toxicity and her manner of death listed as accidental. Ashley’s memorial service was held January 20th, 2019.
Carol absolutely does not believe that her daughter ended up in the woods on her own. Rumors and speculation abound, but there are parts of each of them that give you pause. Ashley’s boyfriend, Ricky, did not participate in the search for her to the extent one would expect. Ricky has a brother, Carl, who was seen looking in and measuring a well on their family’s property, and this was reported to the police by his own family member. Law Enforcement did go out and check the well, but nothing was found there. Very shortly after, a shed on the property burned down. Carol has been told that Ashley’s body had been moved around and this was one place where she was stored. There is also a rumor that the acquaintance Ashley called on the day she was last see, Kenny, and another man, John, were responsible for her death. Purportedly, John borrowed Joy’s car that day and did not return for several hours. When he finally did come back, he thoroughly cleaned the car then gave it to another man. The car has not been located. Carol has been told that John gave Ashley a “hot shot,” which is when someone injects a person with enough drugs to cause death, and that she was sexually assaulted by Kenny. No signs of sexual assault were listed in the autopsy report, but the DNA swabs that were obtained were never tested.
Carol is no longer looking for justice. She is not looking for an arrest, or for a person to be punished. She only wants to know what happened to her daughter. The week before she went missing, Ashley texted a friend that she had been sober for 20 days and was now following God. While Carol does take some comfort from this, her questions continue to torment her. Where was Ashley during the time she was missing? Who was she with? The police believe that Ashley had an episode of methamphetamine psychosis that led her to walk into the woods and unfortunately die there. There is the possibility that Ashley died of an accidental overdose, and the people who were with her panicked and left her body in the woods. There is the possibility that she was murdered, as Carol believes. There are people in Fayette County who know where Ashley was during the time she was missing. Carol is simply asking for them to tell her the truth.
I interviewed Carol and Adam for this article. Adam seems like the natural suspect since he was the last one to see her alive, although I must say that after speaking to him I feel that is highly unlikely. He was cooperative with law enforcement from the start, going as far as offering his phone to the police for evidence. I felt strongly that he was open and honest with me as well, and my usual suspicion did not gnaw at me when speaking with him. Two law enforcement officials have told Carol they feel Ashley’s death is suspicious, but there has been no evidence of a crime found. After her death was ruled accidental, Ashley’s case was closed.
*Some names have been changed. My primary sources were interviews with Ashley’s mother, Carol, and her friend Adam.

2021.09.20 04:39 Worried_Routine_5944 Awful things happening in my gums after failed wisdom tooth extraction
Hello from New England,
On 9/1 I had one upper wisdom tooth extracted, and unfortunately the other partially-erupted upper wisdom tooth could not be extracted after lots of effort. The site of the failed extraction became infected and was extremely swollen and painful even after a week-long course of antibiotics.
On 9/14 a large, squishy lump developed on my gums around the tooth. That night something white and squishy burst out of my gums, followed by a lot of bleeding. Today on 9/19 the area became swollen again and a blood clot popped out of it (which at least decreased the pain).
I’m working on scheduling a consult with an oral surgeon, but I’m rather nervous about all of this. Is this common after failed extractions or should I be concerned? Is stuff like this going to keep happening until I finally get the tooth taken out? Any help is greatly appreciated, it’s been a rough couple of weeks. Thank you.

2021.09.20 04:39 SpecificString3494 Did I make the right decision going no-contact with her? We still both have feelings for eachother
Apologies for bad formatting and if I ramble, I’m on mobile and it’s hard to type this out.
This is kind of a confusing situation and I’m just not sure what to do. Me (m21) and this girl(20) are from the same hometown and friend group so we see each other all the time when we are home from college. Over the first quarantine we ended up sparking up a relationship and were super happy together. Come time to go back to college at the end of the summer we decided to just keep in touch but not try doing long distance. This was the summer of 20’ so we went the first semester and it wasn’t a big deal. We end up coming back for winter and hang out all the time again and then the same thing happens for the spring semester. Come this past summer our feelings were very strong for eachother and everything seemed so perfect. We kind of avoided talking about if we were going to do the same thing when we went back to college and stupidily I thought we might try long distance, so when she didn’t think it could work I was super bummed. The first 4 weeks back at college we were texting every day and saying how much we miss each other and planning to visit eachother and FaceTiming all the time. I was really confused cause she didn’t want to do long distance but it seemed like we were basically in a relationship… This all caused me to overthink everything so we FaceTime and i basically say we should either make this official and visit or we should maybe not be texting and acting like we are in a relationship. She was super emotional about everything and said that she just thinks she won’t be able to do long distance because she’s worried she won’t be able to be there for me all the time and then also said that she’s scared of being in a serious relationship because she’s never done one before me. So we decided to just not talk for a while to see what it’s like without eachother and then talk thanksgiving break when we can see eachother to see if we should really do it. I still really want this to work out and I know she isn’t doing this cause she wants to be with someone else as we both didn’t do anything with other people last year. Is this the best course of action to maybe get a conclusion out of this or should we still be talking I just don’t know.. any thoughts would really help me out right now, thanks.
