2022.01.28 22:07 shnog Live Lecture Impressions, or Honest Notes From a True Fan
I went to his lecture in Austin on Wednesday, and I thought I'd give my impressions of the experience.
His daughter "opened for him" (her words) and spoke for about ten minutes. She gave a rambling monologue about the virtues of motherhood, among other things, which was greeted with polite applause. Her presence, however, lent a high-school talent-show vibe to the whole affair, as she is, in my estimation, not a gifted or particularly engaging public speaker, nor did it seem like she had really prepared in any meaningful way for the event. I know Jordan loves his kids, but her influence on his image does not lend it an air of legitimacy. She seemed to lose her train of thought a few times during her presentation and I could feel the audience tensing up as it seemed she was on the verge of freezing in place on stage.
Happily, this ended quickly enough and Dr. Peterson was brought onstage to the first of several ovations. He seemed happy and fairly relaxed, but he had a hitch in his step and seemed rather stooped and tired. I couldn't help but notice how he has aged visibly in the last couple of years, which isn't surprising given what he has been through.
His talk was a little underwhelming, honestly. He led off with some news about Canadian politics, which was interesting but hardly gripping to an audience of Texans. I think when he gets overtly political something in my mind starts to tune out, because, well, he isn't a politician, and I think forays into politics may be good for his bottom line, but a lot of it comes off as Conservative virtue signaling, even though I really don't think he means for it to have that effect, or at least I sincerely hope that he is above pandering to anyone.
For someone who isn't as familiar with his work, I'm sure there was a lot to gain from the show, but as steeped as I am in his oeuvre, as it were, I could tell that the talk was a patchwork of earlier talking points that he was basically stitching together on the fly. There was the classic stuff about whether or not you would be Schindler or a Nazi, and a lot of emphasis on the literal "good" of "truth". I actually found myself mouthing along with what he was saying word-for-word several times, like singing along with a favorite musician at a concert. And maybe that says more about me than him, as it may be too much to expect for him to come up with a completely new lecture. But most of the material he covered has been in the public forum for many years.
I'd say the Q&A was by far my favorite part, and there was a moment of true Peterson Magic when he gave an answer about the "unearned knowledge" gained from psychedelic experiences. If I was helping him with his shows, I might tell him to make the whole experience a true Q&A, as I got the feeling that I wasn't the only one in the audience who had heard literally all of this stuff before when we were listening to the lecture portion.
I can see what is going on with him. He is under pressure to promote his book, but he is still very much in recovery mode from his illness. He was game to do it and I personally can't imagine the pressure that this type of event puts on a person. But the style and substance of the show was in line with his Rogan appearance, which was so borderline manic that it made him seem pretty kooky and obviously turned Rogan off, as evidenced by his dismissive and borderline rude attitude through most of his appearance. I felt bad for him as he complimented Joe several times during his show, because it is obvious that Rogan treated him like a different person during this appearance than he had previously.
I hope the Good Doctor can get healthy fast, delete Twitter, and maybe tell Mikhaila to stay on the bench next tour. I'm really pulling for him, but this show seemed a little loopy and a little slapdash for something I'd been looking forward to for so long.
I say all of this with the disclaimer that I am probably oversaturated in his material, and my expectations were no doubt unrealistically high. The audience seemed to really enjoy the show and I'm sure it was seen as good experience by virtually everyone that attended.

2022.01.28 22:07 aanurajesh Why do so many people hate What If?
I just finished watching ‘What If…?’ (I’m late, I know), and I’m shocked. It was actually amazing and imo, the concept was probably the most interesting MCU concept so far.
That’s why I’m so confused as to why so many people hate on it. I’ve seen people saying things like ‘it didn’t make sense’ or ‘it was boring’ or ‘it didn’t go with the MCU’, but I disagree completely. I thought it made complete sense with Phase 4 and what’s going to happen + it was fascinating to see the alternate timelines and I was hooked. Aside from a few plot holes, I felt like it was a really well done MCU (or MCM) project.

2022.01.28 22:07 RomancingApparition How Much Longer?
Any idea? You know everything thing there is to know. You've been in and out, over, and through every square inch of everything I am and everything that I have, in all ways physical, emotional, and intellectual. What else could you possibly think I'm hiding or have to offer? I'm not fascinating or important, not wealthy nor seeking any kind of place in the public's crosshairs, so I'm at a loss. If we must continue, allow us tea or a latte. Let me see your face just once more so that my spirits are revived and my will to play this dreadful game is renewed. Make it lively again, otherwise, I fear you may compromise yourself by dozing off at the most inopportune time.

2022.01.28 22:07 PaladinEsrac Regarding Bull Moose Teddy and Districts
So, I'm trying to work on my gameplay as Bull Moose Teddy and I'd like to ask for some opinions on districts. Especially Holy Sites, Campuses, and Industrial Districts. For reference, I usually play on Emperor difficulty, but I'm trying to branch out to Deity.
Normally, I rush a Holy Site because I want a religion and I usually ignore Campuses, because I don't want to give up the, usually, Breathtaking tile. Just relying on his +2 Science and/or Culture and Preserves. When I play other civs, I always prioritize Industrial Districts, but I hesitate until the late game with Teddy, because of the Appeal penalty. Though I suppose that can be neutralized by some of the Great Engineers.
Anyone got any insight they can lend me?

2022.01.28 22:07 VonRoderik Só trabalha sexta de noite quem não tem família.
Foi isso que eu e alguns colegas solteiros escutamos, semestre atrás de semestre, na universidade onde éramos professores. Não éramos casados nem tínhamos filhos, logo sempre éramos escolhidos para trabalhar sexta-feira de noite, mesmo que tivéssemos 44 horas de aulas por semana.
Isso aconteceu até que me tornei coordenador do curso... Responsável por alocar as disciplinas dos professores...
Poderia ter ferrado com os que me condenavam antes, mas preferi ser justo. Eu "não tinha família" na época. Morava com meus pais e tinha uma namorada que sempre reclamava. Levei tudo isso em conta.
Como coordenador, continuava na universidade nas sextas a noite. Isso não mudou. Mas agora podia decidir o futuro de outros.
Informalmente decidi, para as cadeiras de sexta a noite: os professores iriam alternar. Em um semestre, quem não tinha "família". No outro, quem tinha "família". Os professores com família me denunciaram na ouvidoria. O que não levou a nada, afinal eu fazia um rodízio e só chamava os professores capacitados para tal disciplina.
Um ano depois fui demitido pois defendi uma aluna que havia sofrido uma punição injusta da pro reitoria.

I know there's nothing i can do myself, but any suggestions on how sympathy/empathy should be given will be very helpful :)
I hate that she's in this position right now because we had semi planned our future around her being long distance, but now i don't even know what's going to happen.

2022.01.28 22:07 CursedWithFibro How do you accept that you have fibro? I cannot seem to come to terms with it after 4 years.
I have had this for 4 years. The first year I couldn’t even pick up me phone or support my own neck. The second year I could barely use my hands and could barely support my neck. The third year we put easily $200K worth or regenerative injections(prolotherapy, stem cells, platelet rich plasma) into me and I made leaps and bounds. I can hold my own head up no problem, my arms barely get the daily tasks done, but I still feel just as useless as the early days. Maybe it’s the black and white thinking, maybe it’s an ADHD thing, but if I don’t have the ability to do what I want, when I want, my thoughts eat away at me.
I either end up in one of two mindsets: “I feel terrible today, so I’m not going to do anything” or “I actually did something today, but it won’t lower my pain long term or increase my abilities so who cares”. It leads to a mindset that is apathetic about my own life, where I even end up, or any goals in life. I have had many counseling sessions as well as therapy but I can’t seem to care at all as long as it won’t help me do the fun things that make life worth living.
How do you best this mindset(those of you who are truly debilitated)? Did you take small steps or did you jump head first?
If anyone thinks similar to me, let me know. I don’t want to feel like an outlier in this mentality.
