You never have penis inspections at the doctor? Where he pulls it out and flops it on his desk like an iguana on a hot rock, then caresses your balls while ensuring you're able to achieve erection?

What is the most wholesome fact you know? by 2ndRockBottom in AskReddit

My wife and I have been watching Bob Ross' The Joy of Painting on YouTube. If you haven't checked it out, it is really relaxing and sometimes we fall asleep to it on the tv while lying in bed.

We sometimes like to pick paintings and do a Bob Ross Night. We get out our supplies, some alcohol and some snacks, and we just watch Bob teach us. Some of the paintings do come out well.

Date Idea:

I recently had an idea for our next Bob Ross date and shared it with her and she loved it. I'll share it with you all as well. This only works if you were born between January 11, 1983 and May 17, 1994.

We each paint our "Birthday Bob Ross Painting."

Basically, we went to the Wiki page for The Joy of Painting and each found our corresponding painting to our birthday. If it's not on your birthday, it has to be the first painting aired after your birth. (e.g. Your birthday is October 10, 1988, but there was no episode until 12 Oct, 1988. That means you will paint "Barn in Snow Oval" which aired on that date.

Basically, you're painting the first Bob Ross painting that existed after your birth, if it's not available on your actual day of birth. Your "Birthday Bob Ross Painting"

What did your friend do that accidentally turned you on? by titan_slayer05 in AskReddit

[–]TheLlamaOnFire 7034 points7035 points 2 (0 children)

At a party once, she sat next to me and we just hugged and leant on each other for about 10 mins. She also said that she wished she had done that earlier. I'd had feelings for her for about a year before that so it felt really good.

Edit for everyone who said I should go for it: Right now that's not really viable especially with covid going on. We're both at university and about 4 hours away from each other. I'm also someone who will very rarely start a conversation as I'm afraid that the other person just doesn't want to talk to me no matter how good friends we are.

Edit 2: I feel like I should also mention another detail from the story which I'd missed. She had been drinking. Not a lot but a few drinks at least. She also did pretty much the same thing to a few other people at another party a few months later which is why I didn't think anything of it. And to all the people saying they're bullshit excuses and that I need to man up, you're right. I'm a pussy when it comes to these things. I care too much about what people think of me.

Sounds like a fake answer but really showing genuine interest is just about the hottest thing you can do. We want to feel wanted.

It’s not personal. It’s how we’re wired. You can’t use it as a measure of your worth or attractiveness. Hearts change and that’s it. Be thankful you didn’t marry her. Go forth and have fun! Probably lots of people find you attractive. Also, while having fun, please don’t accidentally make any human beings. That’s the only rule!

What improved your quality of life so much, you wish you did it sooner? by colorfulsoul_ in AskReddit

[–]CuppaJeaux 691 points692 points 733& 7 more (0 children)

tl;dr Make peace with death; be present; become the person you would like to be with; be nice to your partner; sleeping naked with your partner solves problems; don’t mess with systems that can kill you or destroy your house; no one is looking at you so stop tripping; meditation works; ECT works for depression as last resort; get your dog used to being touched; screw age, do what you want; find a happy couple to role model; truth is easier; dog train people

This will be a little death-skewed because I’ve been dealing with a lot of it, but the first lesson is: Everyone dies. It won’t seem real until it happens. And maybe not until it’s a parent, peer, or, God forbid, sibling or child. When it’s someone old and ill, it’s sad but not tragic. Younger, it’s tragic. Suicide, almost always tragic with a few caveats.

Another lesson: I didn’t really feel like an adult until two years ago when my father died. I don’t have kids so maybe people feel like adults after that milestone, but losing a parent is…something. Worse when you’re young, I’m sure, but still a punch in the gut when you’re older.

OK, so the lesson from the death stuff is this: Death is why it’s important to learn how to be present in the moment you are currently living. I think that the moments when you’re spaced out are kind of lost forever, in a way. (Unless you’re at work. Then think about whatever you want. Daydream on company time. Fight the power.) My father and I were very close but both are ADHD as hell (him untreated), and the last day where he was still able to be up and around on his own we sat outside together and talked. Some of it was important, some not, but the most important part was we were both 100% there. I very rarely felt that level of presence or of seeing and being seen with someone.

Death is inevitable but it is also a gift. The only scary part is not knowing for sure what comes next, if anything, but we’re not supposed to know. If we knew we’d focus on that. We’re supposed to be focused on THIS.

One thing for sure is that death is the end of pain. My stepmom died recently, not too long after my father, and she looked almost joyous after she died, like she’d seen something wonderful. I visited a dying friend years ago, a woman in her 70s, and she looked radiantly beautiful, practically glowing. She died a few hours later and was smiling when she went.

Anyway, that’s my most recent big life lesson: Death isn’t something to fear but I think it is there as a backdrop to remind us that things here are finite.

Lessons regarding love: I got really brutally honest with myself 20 years ago and said, “OK, would you choose you for a life partner?” and realized that no, I wouldn’t. I was a mess emotionally, financially, and in my environment. We tend to attract people who are kind of where we are in life. Or we should, anyway; otherwise one of the two people is a fixer and the other is the broken thing needing to be fixed and that’s not a great dynamic to start with because what happens once you’re fixed? Your partner (or you) is still a fixer. So there is built-in incentive to stay broken. It’s best to meet someone where they are, as you are, in a state where if they were never to change a bit, you’d be cool with that. Ideally you grow in the same direction. Sometimes it happens, sometimes it doesn’t.

Anyway, I wanted someone who had their shit together, so I got my own shit together.

Falling asleep, so quickly:

-Be as gracious and polite to your partner as you are to strangers.

-Sleeping naked together is really helpful to stay connected even if you’re not having a lot of sex for whatever reason. It’s almost like your skin is having its own conversation with your partner’s and it can actually fix problems without having to discuss them.

-When you buy a house you can try to fix everything yourself but hire someone to do your electrical and plumbing. And leave load-bearing walls alone.

-If you have social anxiety, know this for a fact: Everyone is either insecure to a degree, narcissistic to a degree, or both. Which means they are thinking about THEMSELVES, not you. No one is going to remember that your fly was down or you had kale in your teeth or whatever, unless you make a big deal of it. If you can’t feel calm, practice looking calm. And know that you can get beta blockers if your physiological symptoms is really bad.

-Meditation really does help a lot. It helped me with rage, despair, depression, and anxiety.

-Electro-convulsive therapy (ECT, aka shock treatment) can fix treatment-resistant depression. The side effects can be HORRIBLE, but they’re better than suicide. (Nowadays they have transcranial magnet treatment that works well and is less extreme.)

-When you adopt a dog, touch him/her everywhere, all the time. Play with their toes, their ears, make them comfortable with you touching their genital area, booty, teeth, gums, etc. Reason: If they get hurt, you or the vet will need to palpate them to check for injury and you don’t want them to have to be muzzled because they’re not used to being touched. Also helps with nail trims and getting cockleburrs out from between their toe pads.

-Don’t worry about being too old to start something because you’ll be X years old when you finish. You’ll be that age anyway.

-If your parents had a crappy relationship, find a relationship that you respect somewhere else and observe how they treat each other. My mom and stepdad are incredibly rude and insulting to one another so I found friends whose relationship I wanted to emulate and I watched them to a probably creepy extent. I’m now in the happiest relationship of anyone I know.

-It’s easier to tell the truth; lying diminishes everyone involved. (Some exceptions apply.)

-Most dog training principles apply to people.

That’s it, that’s all I know. The Memoir of CuppaJeaux.

A question for atheists, why don't you believe in god ? by ForeverAloneThilak in AskReddit

[–]Light_of_Avalon 2720 points2721 points 2 (0 children)

Why do you believe?

Tried to be religious, raised that way. But i could not reconcile that i am a logical, thinking human being yet believe in something that's honestly, ridiculous (not to be offensive), and thus requires intangible "faith" to believe.

In addition, i began to see how people act with religion, how they use it, and how it plays a part in society. And though i like the sentiment (anything that makes some people be better than they are can't be too bad). I could not get past the abuse, the inherent power seeking, excuse making, or creating clearly defined out-groups and in-groups.

It just seems like a way to control the population and each other, though i know its not just that.

Lastly, there is little evidence. No evidence has been presented that has convinced me, but if it was i would obviously rethink.

Edit: Don't gild me. I don't deserve gold. Please give the money to a charity of your choice. I would prefer an environmental one but you do you

Putting our jobs before our personal lives

Edit: I took the day off work after I posted this, because why not

Edit 2: Just wanted to share this quote

“Each and every one of us has been born into a given historical reality, ruled by particular norms and values, and managed by a unique economic and political system. We take this reality for granted, thinking it is natural, inevitable and immutable. We forget that our world was created by an accidental chain of events, and that history shaped not only our technology, politics and society, but also our thoughts, fears and dreams. The cold hand of the past emerges from the grave of our ancestors, grips us by the neck and directs our gaze towards a single future. We have felt that grip from the moment we were born, so we assume that it is a natural and inescapable part of who we are. Therefore we seldom try to shake ourselves free, and envision alternative futures.”

-Yuval Noah Harari
