2021.12.03 00:41 fatlee27 Keep Fighting for your rights!
I’m a blue collar worker from sydney, lurker on this sub, I’m assuming most of the posts here are from the states, it makes me really sad reading all of these posts that exploits a fellow worker, makes me proud as well that you guys have the courage to stand up to this bullying and power tripping that most of us have experienced.
In comparison, Im a manual labour worker, some of my company benefits which should be universal to everyone, I have 8 weeks of annual leave that rolls over, atm i have about 400 hrs saved up. 12 days sickies, UNION. And a wage thats not that great but good enough to be able to live a bit comfortable.
I hope you guys keep on fighting for your rights. I was gonna say vote, but almost all politicians are selfish bastards. You guys deserve so much better. Keep figthing the good fight!

2021.12.03 00:41 Low-Definition-906 I never thought of it as something serious!!
(WARNING: Sensitive stuff, suicidal thoughts)
Hi! i don't actually know what to write or what to say! it's actually my first time asking for advice on reddit! and it's my first post ever!
For the past 6 or 7 months i have been visiting this subreddit! to see if my situation happened to other people! or if i was alone! as it seemed to me a very hard position to be in and to understand!
I am a 23yo male, and in may of this year, i was working a night shift and i remembered a childhood friend of mine who was also my neighbor, that i didn't speak to since i was 11yo or 12 yo, he was 2yo younger than me i think. And i have great memories with him we played ps2 most of the time, we watched movies, he came to my birthdays and i went to his, i just remember that i had a lot of fun with him, he was a really good friend, like always happy. So i decided to check on him on social media and i saw on his bio something that killed me inside instantly, he wrote something like (i'm not a rapist) or idk. and i immediately started to have flashbacks of me and him doing weird stuff which idk if they're true or not, i don't remember a lot of my childhood. I started quivering, and felt like my heart fell to the ground. After that shift i went home and slept thinking that i was just tired of working long shifts plus night shifts.
The day after i couldn't get out of bed, every time i tried i went immediately to the bathroom and vomited, and started to have extreme panic attacks, to the point of falling to the ground on my knees trying to catch my breath again, i felt like my torso was compressing, and the only position that didn't hurt was laying on my back. The panic attacks and vomitting happened during 3 weeks, i stopped going to work and i couldn't eat. and after that the panic attacks slowly went away, surging from time to time, but not for long.
But during those 3 weeks, i started digging in my memory, and i remembered a lot of things which i still don't know if they're true, or just my memory trying to piece things out. Because what i remembered doesn't make sens, it's just not me. Anyways, i remembered that when i was 9 or 10, i was with two friends of mine who were both at least 1 year older than me, and i remember they knew a lot of sexual things, and i didn't, and they felt like a bit superior because they knew adult things at that time. And then one of them started asking me and my other friend to do weird stuff like oral, and putting his thing on my a** and vice versa (no penetration), and i didn't understand it, i just thought of it as something weird that all kids go through, the thing is i just felt dumb that i listened to the friend that was telling us to do these things.
I also remembered a lot of things like that, i remembered a friend asking me to touch his pe***. Another when i was 8 or 9 (he was 3y older at least) told me that he will give me money if i dropped my trousers which i didn't. Another who was 5yo older also told me to touch his pe***. And when i turned 13yo i think those flashbacks kept coming back and i just brushed them off as weird stuff kids do (and i somehow always think that). The problem is i think i re-did those things with this friend of mine. and i didn't force it or anything it just happened and i remember we were laughing because we thought it was weird (it happened when i was between 9 and 10) when i was 11yo we kept playing video games together but we didn't do weird things again, i started to think that it was wrong.
During those 6 or 7 months, i haven't stopped thinking about it, every single day. Everything turned black, i feel like i was sent to another world, i can't appreciate anything, can't appreciate music, can't appreciate movies, every time i feel a bit good, i think of it and i feel like a monster again, i feel that i don't deserve anything good happening to me. I can't forgive myself for doing those things to him. I'm afraid that he hates my guts, and think of me as a monster, i'm afraid i took his happiness from him. I wish everyday that he will forgive me, and even then i can't forgive myself. I should've known better, sometimes i tell myself that i was just a kid and redid things that were done to me, but still i should've known better.
I want to apologize to him but i'm afraid he will remember and go through trauma or idk. All of this is extremely weird to me because i feel like i have the memory of somebody else, because i'm not an abusive person, i'm very calm, i always try to do the right thing, i don't have enemies, i love my friends and family and i know they love me back. It just doesn't make sens that i did those things.
I still have suicidal thoughts because i feel that if i did something as bad as this to someone i shouldn't really be here, but it just thoughts i searched for it, it's called passive suicidal ideation.
I don't feel anything for the friends that initiated those things with me, and i don't judge them, i take the benefit of the doubt that they didn't know what they were doing. And at the same time, i'm not better than them for redoing it to someone else.
Please if something like this happened to you tell me about it, did you apologize? what happened then? should i ask him to forgive me? should i tell him all what happened. What can i do?
Thanks for reading! sorry for the long post.

2021.12.03 00:41 rickyjj Reading all the horror stories here of Insta360 One X2 getting water damage. Is it really water proof?
I bought an X2, and want to use it with my kids on the pool. But I'm concerned as it seems from reading posts here that water damage is a very widespread issue. Where I live, shipping it to them if broken and getting it back from them would not be feasible.
Is this a widespread issue or is it relatively safe to use it underwater without a Dive Case? If it is widespread, why are they still advertising it as Water Proof to 10m???

2021.12.03 00:41 guyfrompakistan World Bank says it'll take 3 years for the economy to stabilize...in 2018
(Resubmitting, because mods said I didn't copy headline of article)
I came across this old article; with all the talk of expenses, it is important to keep things in perspective. Back in 2018, BEFORE THE PANDEMIC, the WB was estimating that it'll take several years for Pakistan to stabilize from the extremely precarious situation PMLN left the country in. We were heading for worse than a Venezuela type collapse (similar to Lebanon)
By spring of 2020, we were making quite surprising progress (better than my expectations to be honest) until the pandemic hit.
The economic fallout from the pandemic is going to last a while; heck just recently German courts put the kibosh on Nord Stream 2, which means gas prices are going to increase further. And as we exit the pandemic (at least the wealthy west does), so end several of the leniences and allowances Pakistan got by their lenders.
So now we have a "post" pandemic fallout which is wreaking havoc in the world all over. Sri Lankans are taking to the streets to protest (though they're probably the best positioned out of all the South Asian countries), inflation is high all over the world.
And all this is falling on top of our first economic crisis that we were never able to exit.
History is important; context is important. I don't know if the users here are just so young that 2018 is ancient history for them, or they've simply forgotten our economic woes. Either way, I think this article should be an important refresher.

2021.12.03 00:41 HIM_Darling Where to eat before Hamilton at Music Hall tomorrow night?
We received an automated call today saying we needed to arrive 1.5 hours before 7pm in order to park. This kind of screws up any plans we had for being able to eat near home and then head to downtown Dallas.
Already checked and there are no reservations available for the restaurant/pre-show buffet at Music Hall. We have 3 adults and a child. Is there anything “family friendly” that we can get to easily via walking or taking the dart rail a few stops(don’t want to get too far away)?

2021.12.03 00:41 darenta Why don’t we focus our argument for abortion more on the pragmatic aspect of it rather than the philosophical aspect?
I’ve seen a lot of people in favor of abortion try to match opponents of abortion by arguing on the morals and personal belief aspect of abortion which is often fruitless as it becomes entirely subjective and likely not to lead to any conclusions.
Personally, I think arguing for abortion from a pragmatic sense makes it much harder to dispute. For starters, there is data to back up claims, that countries that restrict abortion typically have lower standards of living and lower mortality rates than countries with largely unrestricted access to abortion.
And that one of the strongest nail in the coffin to arguing against restricting abortion would be that countries who have restricted abortion typically have higher rates of abortions than those who have liberalized laws around abortion which can be backed with data.
So why are we focusing on trying to match moral or philosophical arguments about conception of life when it would be an arguably stronger moral argument to make that liberalized abortion laws would be a net positive overall?

2021.12.03 00:41 No_Abbreviations8018 What's an interesting, counterintuitive design decision you've made?
An example I remember well, is basically a really big pair of pliers. The fulcrum pin is loaded in single shear, and the design that "felt right" and made for good manufacturability had the pins failing. They were ~2inch pins at 140ksi material, ~6inches long - no wider than the "pliers" material.
After considering all of the failure modes and stresses, the answer ended up being that we needed to shorten the pins - increasing bearing stress but reducing bending in the pin proper.
Maybe that was obvious to some, but being a pretty junior engineer at the time it felt pretty good to figure that out and drive a resolution for the next design phase. What other nonproprietary, counterintuitive apiphonies have you had?
