6 years ago i started a lie, till today im living with that same story, the same lie and i find it ever so hard to stop/let go

What's the lie? That sounds so interesting. I've done similar things lol like when I was in school I told everyone I belonged to a certain religion so I could get out of something and I kept it up the whole time. It wasn't that big of a deal, but it did come up sometimes. I felt so bad about it.


In Topic: The Pewdiepie situation - new media vs old media

I don't think people are saying you should never make a single joke about the holocaust. I personally can't think of any funny holocaust jokes I've ever heard, but people are free to joke about whatever. They just aren't free from public reaction and consequences. Should anyone be jailed for jokes? Of course not. But can they be socially ostracized and fired? Yes. I don't get why people are so desperate to make everyone accept his "jokes" - if you can even call them that. Like I said, I don't see how "Hitler did nothing wrong" and "Death to all Jews" are jokes. They seem more like statements.

The "jokes" weren't even funny. I can let a lot go in the name of humor, but saying "Hitler did nothing wrong" or "Death to all Jews" really isn't clever, you know? And just think about the horrific things that were done (don't want to go in to detail, but you should read up on explicit details of what happened in the camps/in the gas chambers to children and people in general) it really makes me sick to think that people can just make light of the situation. I feel like people are desensitized to the holocaust. I think I was desensitized until I read more details and really understood what happened to these people, because the details are usually just glossed over. 

 

There's also a growing wave of openly antisemitic people in the US right now, and so it's kind of normalizing that kind of language. I just don't find it funny, one bit.

One day I got a stamp worth like 30mil and another one that was like 15mil and sold them both so fast. It was amazing!


In Topic: Dear Codex, I need cat bite advice

This isn't much help, but hopefully it will make you feel better. I work with animals, but I'm no medical professional, so take this at face value. I have been attacked/bitten by multiple cats, and I usually just clean it up myself right after the incident with first aid stuff (hydrogen peroxide, and this stuff called vetrycin). I have never had an infection (at least that I know of, I never went to a doctor) or gotten sick, so hopefully your mom will be okay. Good luck, sending good vibes your way. I still have a bad scar from the last cat bite. Cats can be really nasty!
