    [–] What highly illegal thing took place at your high school? Theodaro 66 points ago in AskReddit

    I mean... Imagine the dude shows up at your house with the murder weapon and his sister in the trunk. You might be a bit afraid of him, and try to find a way to get safely away, and call the police... but if that chance doesn't come... are you going to risk being a second victim by telling them no? Or are you going to play along and then call the police after?

    [–] What is your evening routine (on weekdays)? Theodaro 1 points ago in AskWomen

    New job will be similar hours, but I will have three consistent days off every week. I’ll be off Monday/Tuesday for sure, and one other undecided day.

    These last few week I was interviewing, and now training, on my days off, so the next 9 days are the last of a brutal slog with almost no free time, other than the 2-3 hours before work (and sometimes the hour after, though I try to be in bed and asleep by 2:30am-3am)

    I start getting ready for work at 2pm every day, so I have about 3 hours, from 11 -2, to eat, make lunch, do laundry, check emails, handle life admin stuff, keep my kitchen clean, and prep a bit for my next D&D game- which is Tuesday (my only “day off” this next week, but I’ll be catching up on laundry, food prep for the week, getting a long walk in, and running a D&D game).

    I’m excited to have some days off again. I lift weights with a trainer, but we put that on pause this month, so I wouldn’t wreck my body. Eager to get back at that.

    [–] Where on your body can you not stand being touched and why? Theodaro 2 points ago in AskReddit

    My abdomen. Feels so vulnerable. Leave my mid section alone.

    [–] What is your evening routine (on weekdays)? Theodaro 1 points ago in AskWomen

    Home at 12-1am

    PJ's/comfy clothes, make some (hopefully) healthy food, drink relaxing tea, or booze, skin care, flossing and teeth, make list for tomorrow, read in bed until I fall asleep at 3am-4am.

    Grind teeth all night, have stress induced dreams, profit?

    Wake up at 10:30am-11am.

    Repeat.

    This is my cycle for the next two weeks, then i start a new job... and hopefully I'll be less dead inside.

    [–] HMFT after my selfie with a train Theodaro 1 points ago in holdmyfeedingtube

    Lack of education? Or lack of common sense? What the hell is wrong with some people?

    I just don’t understand.

    Is if lack of exposure to a wide variety of information? Not growing up with parents who outlined consequences? Not having the ability to see a scenario, and extrapolate “if I do this, these things might happen...”

    That doesn’t make sense either, as we are all watching idiots online all the time.

    I’m constantly baffled by this shit.

    [–] I [26F] have always suffered from migraines, my boyfriend [28M] didn't believe me Theodaro 2 points ago in relationships

    What will he do when he has kids?

    Wait till his children are vomiting or passed out to take them to a doctor? Fuck this guy.

    What if you had some sort of complicated medical condition that could lead to death? What if you have some issues in the future and he waits for “proof” that you are really ill?

    People die in these situations. I have a friend who is alive today because her parents rushed her to the ER when she complained of feeling weird and groggy, tired and in pain. Stroke, that they caught in time- but she almost died. Fuck him.

    [–] What age do you feel comfortable with letting a child and their significant other be alone in a locked room? Theodaro 6 points ago in AskWomen

    Teens are gonna fool around. I’m of the mind that they should be educated about protection and their well being, but I’d rather they feel comfortable exploring in the comfort of their home- than is less ideal situations.

    I started kissing my boyfriends at 13-14, and it was made clear to me, by my mother that if I was going to start experimenting sexually in the next few years, that 1) I make sure I was ready, and 2)we would visit the Gynecologist and I would take birth control.

    Boys were not allowed to spend the night in my room until my boyfriend and I were 17-18, but I was allowed a closed (not locked) door at any other time before that.

    I’m of the same mind. I think a locked door is silly in a home- unless you live in an annoying roommate situation. My parents were respectful and knocked first, and I respected her boundaries- which were pretty much “don’t be an idiot when it comes to sex, be careful about your emotional, mental, and physical health- or I’ll take away privileges.”

    What if there’s a medical emergency? Locked doors are sort of overkill. Parents shouldn’t be barging into their kids rooms past like age 10...

    [–] AWs, do you use a period/fertility tracking app? Which one do you use and why do you like it? Theodaro 2 points ago in AskWomen

    No. I’m on a 28 day pill. I get my period on the same weekday every cycle. Once a month, always on a Tuesday at around 3pm.

    [–] Dnd apps Theodaro 1 points ago in DungeonsAndDragons

    dndbeyond has an app- not sure how well it works though, as I’ve only used the web browser.

    [–] What did you think of the Game of Thrones episode of Season 8 that aired last night? Theodaro 29 points ago * (lasted edited 4 days ago) in AskWomen

    Well- if Euron thinks it’s his prince inside her he’ll be more malleable - I think she played that well.

    Everyone in the kingdom is over the Jamie and Cersei romance - including Jamie (for the moment at least). But if the king in the iron island stands united with her... well it’s a plus for Cersei. The only allies she has now are the ones she payed for.

    [–] Seeing people the same age as you you doing awesome stuff with their lives Theodaro 0 points ago in funny

    Same.

    I don’t want kids and I I’m pretty happy with my life.

    There are a few people in my social circles who I envy, sometimes, but only the people who were into the arts, like I was, and went on to get jobs in design and illustration.

    I’m well aware of why that is, though, so it’s just a wistful “well, good for them...”. I dropped out of art school when I could not decide on a major (and because I didn’t want to go into debt to find figure it out), and they toughed it out and found jobs in their desire fields. If anything I just envy them knowing what they wanted to study at 18. If I had stuck it out- I’d be in fashion design now- and it’s not something I’m passionate about anymore... so that seems like a bullet dodged.

    I also don’t envy the sacrifices they make/made for their kids, the sleep they are missing, their free time disappearing, or the added expense for the next 20 years. It’s just not for me. I’m happy they are happy, but I certainly don’t envy that.

    [–] Anyone else stopped dining out at restaurants? Theodaro 23 points ago in Frugal

    Dining out falls under the “self care”, “entertainment” or “education” categories in our budget.

    We only eat out if we are too exhausted to cook (self care), need a nice night out after a stressful week (self care), need a date night, or have saved up for something Michelin Stared or a food destination (entertainment/educational).

    We both work in fine dinning, it’s important for us to be in the loop, to make connections at other restaurants in our city, and to taste wine and food to better understand it.

    I just include it in our budget and keep an eye on things.

    [–] What's your opinion on going out braless? Theodaro 2 points ago in AskWomen

    For me: nope!

    For everyone else: whatever they wanna do.

    I have some plump floppy tahtahs that are about a size D/DD- fashion just isn’t made to look good with them on the loose!

    [–] F/40/5’9” [214lb > 151lb = 63lb] Celebrating ONE YEAR today since my journey began!!! Theodaro 1 points ago in progresspics

    Thank you for putting a smiling emoji on both of your pictures!

    I know that a lot of people aren’t happy with their weight or shape before starting a weight loss journey- but it doesn’t mean we are all depressed about it 100% of the time.

    I went shopping today and I’m the largest I have ever been since I was 14, 5’4” 175lbs- it was a hot an miss experience- but I still try to keep a positive attitude.

    Yeah- it’s not great, and I’m working on it- but the implications that fat people are never happy bugs me when I see the sad/happy face in other posts.

    Anyway- bit of rant.

    You look great!

    [–] [SERIOUS] Would you reduce your meat consumption if lab-grown meat or meat alternatives were cheaper and tasted good? Why or why not? Theodaro 1 points ago in AskReddit

    Yes.

    I don’t care if it’s grown in a lab- if it has flavor, texture, or marbling- bring it. It would be a selling point to me to know that no animal was involved, there was no risk of parasites, and the environmental impact was lessened.

    I have had the Impossible Burger dozens of times since its inception, and while not lab grown, it’s delicious! -and their 2.0 soy based formula is virtually indistinguishable from ground beef to me.

    I find that a lot of clap back against meat alternatives, or actual meat grown in a lab, comes from an older, ignorant, generation who lived through the unpalatable health food trends born of the 60’s and 70’s. Many people think of vegan or meat alternatives and imagine tasteless and dry black bean patties born of the weird era where there was a war on fat, and people thought “healthy” food had to be steamed vegetables, weird soy protein, and desserts where the only sweetness was some kind of goopy date paste. I know- I grew up in San Francisco with a health food crazed hippie mother. And, while I, maybe, didn’t have the same problems as someone who grew up eating fast food for lunch, and dinner, and lucky charms for breakfast- there were some backwards ideas about health and nutrition that came from her weird ass cook books and pseudoscience reading.

    I think a lot of people don’t even know what goes into their food in the first place, these days. They are all up in arms about new food technology- but if you told them what goes into making half the stuff they put into their mouths it would blow their mind.

    [–] What are your unpopular opinions regarding tattoos? Theodaro 3 points ago in AskWomen

    This is a perfect analogy.

    I can understand a stranger being curious- but it’s really inappropriate to ask someone you don’t know those kinds of personal questions. It’s a good policy to avoid bothering strangers anyway, beyond polite and respectful pleasantries.

    Asking a stranger about a tattoo is the same as asking a stranger about race or sexual orientation. It could be very personal, or they could feel pretty uncomfortable with the question. Unless you are on at least ‘acquaintances’ terms, or have invested some time in getting to know them, just leave it alone.

    [–] Have you ever gone to Planned Parenthood? If so, what services did you utilize? Theodaro 2 points ago in AskWomen

    I went several times in my 20s before I had a job with health insurance.

    Birth control prescriptions, routine pap, and regular STI tests between partners.

    [–] What do you think of women who don't shave their legs? Theodaro 2 points ago in AskWomen

    Well, for most of the year I’m one of those women...

    I think I’m pretty practical, and unless I need my legs to compliment a fashionable outfit I don’t like taking the time to shave.

    I wear tights or leggings almost exclusively anyway.

    On the rare occasion (like once a year) that I show bare calf, I’ll shave- because I like the aesthetics of smooth skin- but I see no reason to bother with it otherwise.

    [–] What are your unpopular opinions regarding tattoos? Theodaro 21 points ago in AskWomen

    I respect a person’s decision to do what they want with their own body- but I think some art is inherently tacky, or trashy, or ugly, and I’ll definitely judge the heck out of certain tattoos.

    In hindsight, I guess this might not actually be that unpopular...

    [–] If you ask a man to exchange numbers first time you met, does that mean you like him as a friend or like him as a potential boyfriend? Theodaro 1 points ago in AskWomen

    Depends on the circumstances.

    Sometimes I meet people who seem cool, or we have similar hobbies, or we are both artists, or I want to get to know them better and see if we actually get along- so I give them my number.

    Sometimes it’s because I think they are hot.

    I make it very clear which is which by saying something like “maybe I can take you out on a date sometime..?” If I have romantic interest.
