  1. Yeah, but you don't know how well he would have been able to handle that. It's not like you know him very deeply as a person. Also, in my opinion, the kind of Russia, where Navalnyi could realistically become a president, would be inherently less corrupt already.
  2. You don't know that.
  3. I feel sick.
  4. I wish everyone here to have the courage and strength to live the kind of life he did.
  5. RIP, he was amazing.
  6. Oh, that's actually funny, haha. @Rafael Thundercat sorry, I guess I might have misunderstood you <3
  7. @Rafael Thundercat get a hobby and stop posting arrogant comments that don't help anyone.
  8. @Yimpa haha, okay I still want to let my excitement cool down a bit and wait for a few weeks to pass before I make the final decision. But if I end up deciding to get a dog, I will share it here
  9. @Swarnim your point makes sense, but I am not sure if it is true. I am not giving up on myself, just trying to find a solution that works for me. What if the root cause of a problem is me being alone all the time. Getting a dog would address it then. But I don't think that I am going to be doing the bare minimum. I think I might finally start enjoying life. This approach of thinking that I should first prepare myself perfectly before I decide to do something has never worked for me. I would always end up just procrastinating away. On the other hand, jumping right into the thing that I want to do and dealing with challenges as they come has worked well several times in my life.
  10. @Spiritual Warrior i did, it's been coming and going for six months now.
  11. I am not risky for the dog. I would definitely take a good care of it. I know that you didn't mean it but it actually feels kind of insulting, tbh. If I thought that any of that would work, I would be doing that instead. I already have a coach / therapist, I don't feel like those two things are mutually exclusive. Also, I am going to wait until our next session, before I make any decisions, because I want to talk with her about it.
  12. Well, that's the point. I don't think I can take care of myself probably because it's just me. If I had somebody else to keep me company it would be totally different.
  13. I struggle with loneliness and depression, and because of that I am not able to live the life I would like to live. I spend a lot of my days laying in bed and eating junk food, I have a hard time keeping my house clean, I am not able to stick to whatever goals I set for myself, I have no social life. Recently got this idea of getting myself a dog. And here is why I think it would help me deal with my issues: 1) It would support me emotionally, preventing me from getting depressed and feeling lonely 2) Taking care of someone else would motivate me, mobilize me to take action, work on improving my life, etc., etc. For example, I feel like I can tolerate living in a dirty house myself, but there is no way that I would ever allow my dog to live in a dirty house. I would also want to get a better career that is more flexible and pays more, so that I can take care of my dog better. And in general, I think that owning a dog would improve my whole lifestyle and make it much more healthy, grounded, and consistent. On the other hand, I feel like having a dog could hold me back in a lot of ways: - It will make it even harder for me to find time for going out and socializing - I will have less time for everything else, including developing new skills, starting a business, doing spirituality, etc., etc. - Taking care of a dog costs money, and I don't have that much money - Having a dog would make moving places much harder But then you could of course make an argument that I am not able to do any of these things anyway in the mental state I currently am, so it would be better for me to get a dog, which will help me pull myself together, even though on paper, taking care of a dog takes a lot of time and energy. Any thoughts?
  14. I've watched the below video on Oil from Leo's blog: When talking about greener alternatives to Oil, the guy completely dismisses the nuclear power simply because "it will need a PR boost", according to his own words. How is that a valid argument? The narrator paints this dystopian "post order" future with oil shortages and climate change but says that nuclear energy won't be an option because...? To me, it looks like a great alternative to oil, gas, and coal. A nuclear power plan produces a shit tonn of energy, doesn't polute the environment or produce CO2, and isn't dependent on weather conditions (unlike solar or wind). It also doesn't require a super complicated supply chain, unlike oil or gas. Ability to produce energy locally, independent of the external political situation is a huge advantage, right? And, I think that its dangers are really overblown. There is also an issue of nuclear waste it generates, but it doesn't seem like that big of a deal to me. Is there something that I am missing which makes nuclear energy not a viable option?
