sunagainstgold comments on In popular culture and meme posts there’s a stereotype correlating living in Southern states and incest. Is there any historical reason why this stereotype is a thing? Why aren’t Northern American states associated with this stereotype instead?


Louis C.K. Hates Cell Phones — “Underneath everything… you’re forever empty… that knowledge that it’s all for nothing and you’re alone. […] Life is tremendously sad just by being in it. People are willing to risk taking lives and ruining their own because they don’t want to be alone for a second because it’s so hard. […] You never feel completely sad or completely happy, you’re just feel kinda satisfied with your products and then you die.”

Oliver Sacks: My Periodic Table

Existential Riddles “A man turned off the light and went to bed. Because of this, several people died. Why?” “The man lives in a lighthouse; when he turned off the light, two ships crashed. For months, the man is wracked with guilt — how could he forget to keep the light on? What was he thinking? Years pass. The man moves to a small inland town. He attends group therapy regularly. At one session, he meets a widow of three years. She is beautiful in a quiet way. They get married. She never questions why he refuses to turn off the lights at night. Days become decades. They don’t have children, but they are happy together. One day, the man visits an antique shop and breaks down sobbing when he sees a ship in a bottle. He asks his wife to drive him to the ocean. She does. She knows not to ask why. They arrive. The man forgives himself. He finally forgives himself.”

Life and Donuts, by Pablo Stanley

How to tell a mother her child is dead. – I will show you: If it were my mother you would say, “Mrs. Rosenberg. I have terrible, terrible news. Naomi died today.” You say it out loud until you can say it clearly and loudly. How loudly? Loudly enough. If it takes you fewer than five tries you are rushing it and you will not do it right. You take your time.

A protocol for dying

Suicide notes “These suicide notes were gathered at the coroners’ offices by a suicidologist/psychiatrist who asked to be anonymous. He edited identifying details out of the compiled manuscript, and we changed the names. But the text of each letter plus the age and sex given are real. All these people did kill themselves. Were they ambivalent about it? About half the hundred or so letters we saw seemed to have some element of doubt.”

Learning to Measure Time in Love and Loss “I’m constantly aware of lost opportunities. I used to think such lost opportunities were beautiful towns flashing by my train windows, but now I imagine they are lanterns from the past, casting light on what’s ahead.”

On Mother’s Day, my Mom asked me to help end her life “If I were your mother, would you advise me to do these things?” After a long pause, he replied, “No.”

Play happens when things are the right amount of ambiguous and the right amount of uncertain. Too much or too little of either and it gets boring, frustrating, etc.

#Mindfulness, Mindset, Mind, Cognition

#Management (Organizations)


  • The Wedding Toast I’ll Never Give “I only wish I could tell them they will suffer occasionally in this marriage — and not only sitcom-grade squabbles, but possibly even dark-night-of-the-soul despair.”
  • What romance really means after 10 years of marriage “Because survival is ugly. Survival means sometimes smelling and sounding the wrong way. It’s one thing for a person to buy you flowers, to purchase a nice dinner, to PROVE that they truly, deeply want to have some good sweet-talky time and some touching time alone with you, and maybe they’d like to do that whole routine forever and ever and ever. […] Once you have kids, even in a first-world country, you enter a kind of simulation of third-world living. You’re feeding one kid with your body while your husband crouches on the floor of a dressing room at the mall, wiping excrement off the other kid’s butt. You and your spouse are slogging through the slop of survival together.”
  • How we end up marrying the wrong people + NYT: Why You Will Marry The Wrong Person – a post by Alain de Botton, who has a history of writing really good pieces about taking a broader, more compassionate perspective on things. I think his point is that there are a lot of overwhelming expectations
  • She Divorced Me Because I Left Dishes by the Sink  “The wife doesn’t want to divorce her husband because he leaves used drinking glasses by the sink. She wants to divorce him because she feels like he doesn’t respect or appreciate her, which suggests he doesn’t love her, and she can’t count on him to be her lifelong partner. She can’t trust him. She can’t be safe with him. Thus, she must leave and find a new situation in which she can feel content and secure.”
  • The Secret to Love Is Just Kindness
  • Lasting relationships are about kindness and generosity – The bit about bids is very interesting
  • Esther Perel – The secret to desire in long-term relationships “So we come to one person, and we basically are asking them to give us what once an entire village used to provide. Give me belonging, give me identity, give me continuity, but give me transcendence and mystery and awe all in one. Give me comfort, give me edge. Give me novelty, give me familiarity. Give me predictability, give me surprise. And we think it’s a given, and toys and lingerie are going to save us with that.”
  • Esther Perel – What’s wrong with infidelity? “It’s because fidelity is the last thing left that defines a marriage,” she says. “You don’t need to wait to have sex, you don’t need kids. You don’t even need marriage anymore. The only thing that distinguishes it is that, after years of sexual nomadism, you suddenly say ‘I have finally found the one. You are so extraordinary that I am no longer looking for anything else. For you I promise to be suddenly exclusively monogamous’.” The only hitch, says Perel, is that sexual nomadism doesn’t prepare you for exclusivity. “It’s not as though you got it out of your system. Love and desire aren’t the same thing.”
  • Daily Mail – How the Obamas almost split up – not sure how accurate this stuff is, but it reads quite accurately to me.
  • I Wasn’t Treating My Husband Fairly, And It Wasn’t Fair
  • Quora answers from a divorce lawyer
  • The Calculus of Divorce
  • How Much Ambition Can a Marriage Sustain?
  • The globalization of marriage markets

What’s a girl worth?

Ways of seeing – “A woman is always accompanied, except when quite alone, and perhaps even then, by her own image of herself. While she is walking across a room or weeping at the death of her father, she cannot avoid envisioning herself walking or weeping. From earliest childhood she is taught and persuaded to survey herself continually. She has to survey everything she is and everything she does, because how she appears to others – and particularly how she appears to men – is of crucial importance for what is normally thought of as the success of her life.”

BBC: China bans ‘erotic’ banana-eating live streams I found this piece of news really entertaining. Basically young girls are eating bananas erotically for horny men to jerk off to, and presumably they must be getting good money for it.

The foul reign of the biological clock It seems like the concept of the biological clock has been with us forever. In fact, the metaphor was invented in the late 1970s. And it has been used to reinforce sexist ideas ever since

The Fierce Triumph of Loneliness “In pop culture we have “the bachelor pad,” and “the bachelor lifestyle,” but no such phrases for women.”

What does it mean when we call women girls? “When you become a woman is when people come out of your vagina and step on your dreams.”

I Get So Annoyed When ‘Cool’ Young Women Say They Are Not Feminists: Arundhati Roy

Bottom-Of-The-Barrel Cuckold Fetishist, Or Spinster Hoax? As I write this, my children are asleep in their room, Loretta Lynn is on the stereo, and my wife is out on a date with a man named Paulo. It’s her second date this week; her fourth this month so far. If it goes like the others, she’ll come home in the middle of the night, crawl into bed beside me, and tell me all about how she and Paulo had sex. I won’t explode with anger or seethe with resentment. I’ll tell her it’s a hot story and I’m glad she had fun. It’s hot because she’s excited, and I’m glad because I’m a feminist.

I went through a phase sometime 2 years ago where I found myself very curious about the men at The Red Pill. I do not consider myself one of them, but I found them fascinating, the way a researcher might find some subculture fascinating. Maybe someday I’ll work through all of these reads and write about my thoughts about them. Or maybe not. I don’t bother going there any more.

It would be the story of a country willing to do anything for its military except take it seriously.”
