AJLT and the cringe factor

2022.01.24 17:08 ampersand897 AJLT and the cringe factor

So this isn't based on any real research or actual thought, but I've noticed there's a lot more sensitivity to "cringe" scenes lately in the culture at large. There's a pervasive sense now that cringe = bad rather than having something to say about changing social mores, the division between public and private, and soliciting empathy through humour.
I was reading Kaitlyn Tiffany's recent article in The Atlantic and got to thinking about how cringe culture affects our perception and enjoyment of AJLT. Tiffany ends the article with the following statement: "While we used to cringe because we understood, we now cringe because we can’t believe it: How are there still so many people out there who don’t know how to act?"
Cringe obviously means different things to different people, but I'd define it as the product of a huge discrepancy between self-image and social perception. Cringe used to be more tied to empathy in the past since to cringe at something, there's often an element of guilty self-recognition and the relief that it's not our embarrassing secret that's being served up for public mockery. As cringe culture grew on the Internet, it also began to splinter and mutate until we got "cringe comedies" like Veep, Parks and Rec, and Girls (a direct descendant of SATC), and even special subreddits devoted to cringing at "SJWs," overzealous Liberals, and Internet-famous geeks like Star Wars Kid. Somewhere along the line, the empathy element got mislaid and reactions to anything super-awkward got more extreme.
When it comes to AJLT, "cringe" could describe Charlotte's blowjob scene, Carrie's peeing the bed, Miranda's calling her affair a "rom com," Che's "comedy concert," the OG characters' microaggressive flailing in the face of changing demographics in their social circles, and any number of things that make viewers uncomfortable. Some viewers use the word to describe any comedy they find flat and unfunny; others use to describe what they perceive as an "excessive" focus on social justice and diversity; still others use it to refer to whatever strips the characters' of basic dignity. What I don't see a lot on social media is discussion of cringe as a vehicle for empathy and recognition.
Anyway, I'm just curious if people have any thoughts on AJLT and cringe culture.

How should I care for this cut on my thumb? I sliced a layer of skin off my thumb. The bottom portion of the slice is still attached to the thumb. There is no pain and no more bleeding. Should it be kept moist? Can I wear a finger cot?

2022.01.24 17:08 nerphurp Mechanics: abilities that still confuse you after hundreds of hours of game play.

Anyone else in this boat? I've beaten KM and WotR 4 times, once on unfair (g.g. angel oracle) - started my 5th run and finally accepted I actually don't understand some of the abilities I've been trying to use.
Here are mine, advice welcome.
True Strike: so many builds say to use this but I've always ignored it as it seemed like a waste of a turn. Of course, whiffing 7 out of 8 attacks on a unarmed/claw/bite build is a waste anyway. I was thinking to start using this with a quicken wand.
Weapon Enhancements: so many choices! Do you just flip on every energy element possible? Should I be using a charge every turn? Does each element help with elemental barrage? Hey, at least I know how to use ghost touch correctly!
Elemental Barrage: speaking of which, what's the best way to trigger this on an unarmed build outside of genirkin? I see folks say use a weapon on a fist build. Eh?
Spell Combat/spell strike: first off, what's the difference? Secondly, they can both be toggled on at the same time? Should they ever be? I'm doing this wrong as I'm getting hit with attacks of opportunity. Do you just set a spell like a cantrip for autocast then melee? Do you cast the spell rather than click to melee?
So, there is is. Hundreds of hours and it's time to admit I just don't get these abilities. Help a gnome out.

2022.01.24 17:08 someeurolezzy Thoughts on the cottagecore lesbian lifestyle

Hey I'm curious if any of you have thought about living that lifestyle, like being in a small house in the countryside, maybe doing some farming or owning a vineyard. So that you don't have to work at a pointless job, and can enjoy nature and each other's company, while doing something that actually benefits people (food, wine etc).

2022.01.24 17:08 Ehuang22 Puppy diarrhea remedy!

I just wanna share this remedy I found with you guys for those pup with sensitive stomach. My puppy has been suffering with soft poop since the beginning and recently she had a very bad run of diarrhea that never fully heal. She had a round of flagyll and on prescribed probiotic. It got better for a 2 days and then it got bad again. The entire time she was on chicken rice diet with some pumpkin purée. Despite this, her poop never got better and was just soft and liquidy. The vet was gonna make her go on another round of antibiotic again . But then I decided to add in Kabocha squash instead of pumpkin purée. This is what we call pumpkin in our culture. And the effect is almost immediately. She has perfect poop the next day. The day before her poop was still liquid. It’s amazing! So maybe the key is getting fresh pumpkin???
