Recent events have young women taking personal vows of celibacy. Maybe they'll realize that "hookup culture" is not so great. Jul 3, 2022 at 6:29 AM

        Things have changed a lot here. And It's just a small country with more men than women. And it's modern for women to be alone and do everything alone. It's just more difficult than it used to be.

        Yeah. Much smaller populations can occasionally make for any number of social trends to move faster in either direction. In comparison, here we have so much diversity combined with a large population that things don't trend "on a dime".

        Plus a sizeable population of reactionaries who fundamentally resist progressive change. Now being enabled through our highest court.

        This country is the size of New Mexico, one state, so I imagine the US is very different in many ways. Doesn't take much for things to cause big changes here.

      I am in Sacramento for a month for dental surgery and to be fitted for dentures. Once I go back home I will try to get regular internet.

        I'm sorry, I know that your life sucks and you have no way out. I didn't intend to attack you or anything. I just said that you seem to be using D8 as a crutch to cope, and using drugs as a coping mechanism is always a dangerous road to go down.

      My seed potatoes will arrive early next week. Heirloom Red Pontiacs like grandpa grew.

        These potatoes will be planted at my land up north, where it does get pretty cold. But I remember that grandpa preferred red pontiac potatoes because of how hardy they are. They can handle a lot, according to him. He died in 2009 so all I have to go by is my memories of being a kid and him teaching me how to grow a garden.

        Red potatoes also taste so amazing! :) I'll have to look into if there's any more frost-resistant varieties as I'd sure like to grow another lot right now... it's great you had people growing things in your family. I was inspired by neighbours when I was a child, who grew things.

      My car needs 4 new tires. Buying them now before the wartime oil shortage makes new tires impossible to find.

      There is likely 6-10 inches of snow at my land. Move will have to be put off until it melts. No earlier than late February.

        I didn't get the home ready until wet weather had already arrived, then I sat out the dry November due to not wanting to travel during Thanksgiving. Then in early December the snow and rain started up and didn't stop. I certainly didn't expect half a foot of snow and temps too cold to melt it for weeks!

        I am so sick of cities and how desperate people have become. People steal everything they can just to make a few bucks for food. I guess getting something for $0 and selling it for $5 is a good enough profit.

        I saw a woman selling (likely) stolen cleaning products under a cheap tent in a parking lot. A world where people can only clean their kitchens if the soap is stolen is not one I want to participate in.
