    [–] WIBTA if I tell my bio daughter that I don't want to help her or have her in my life because she decided that her stepmom should adopt her once she turned 18? rtmfb 1 points ago in AmItheAsshole

    ESH. Not wanting to take her in or give her money is one thing, but completely not in your life sucks. Your daughter is being manipulative and trying to use people, absolutely. And she sucks for that. But she learned about addiction from you at a young age. Having that version of you as a role model forever in her head, plus genetics, means she was most likely destined to have to fight this fight at some point. You of all people, having dealt with the same demons, should be able to understand her struggle.

    [–] Just a reminder--the frozen corpse of Harry Kim is floating in space somewhere in the Delta Quadrant rtmfb 2 points ago in startrek

    How sad is it the only thing I remember from that book besides the premise you just mentioned is how popular he became because of his unique for 3001 mutilation?

    [–] AITA for specifically ordering food my wife hates so I don’t have to share? rtmfb 25 points ago in AmItheAsshole

    Exactly!

    "I've never had that. Can I try a bite?" is cool.

    Helping oneself to half an order of unoffered fries (which it's probably safe to say most of us here have at least tried) is different.

    [–] AITA for specifically ordering food my wife hates so I don’t have to share? rtmfb 1 points ago in AmItheAsshole

    NTA. This is a very disrespectful way for her to behave, and wouldn't be acceptable from anyone else, so why is it suddenly okay from a spouse? While I have no doubt you've addressed this before, I feel like it's an issue that really needs to be pushed and dealt with. Good luck.

    [–] THEORY: Admiral Cornwell and Jett Reno switcheroo rtmfb 5 points ago in startrek

    The way I thought about it was that the future she was trying to travel to was impossible until the signals were sent. It didn't exist. Probably too simple, but it works for me.

    [–] AITA for cutting off a relative for their reaction to a joke? rtmfb 3 points ago in AmItheAsshole

    NTA. She's an asshole. Whatever her fairy tale of choice is doesn't excuse it.

    [–] WIBTA if I tell my daughters that I don't want to reconnect with them because they took the side of my cheating ex wife and never cared to communicate for 14 years? rtmfb 1 points ago in AmItheAsshole

    NAH (except the ex). Your daughters are as much victims of your ex as you are. It's completely understandable that you are hurt and feel like they betrayed you, but your ex probably brainfucked them for years before your divorce even happened. I think if I were in your situation I would start slowly, but try. Good luck.

    [–] I figured out how to solve the endgame population stuttering. rtmfb 1 points ago in Stellaris

    I was a dry guy until 40 then started getting friction burns. It sucked bad.

    [–] "Such Sweet Sorrow, Part 2" — First Watch Analysis Thread rtmfb 9 points ago in DaystromInstitute

    Given this same logic, why not just beam the torpedo out? I assume torpedoes generate an anti-transporter field to prevent this, and that's also why Cornwell was stuck.

    I would guess that most planet based energy production is fusion.

    [–] "Such Sweet Sorrow, Part 2" — First Watch Analysis Thread rtmfb 12 points ago in DaystromInstitute

    There may have been backups. Is it really worth risking all sentient life in the galaxy that there weren't?

    Everyone in the future is so healthy doctors are assigned ordnance handling jobs to fill the time.

    Grid distribution is probably not the best power choice for all things at all times. Solar is much more local.

    [–] The president must be impeached rtmfb 2 points ago in politics

    I hope so. But looking at the seats up for election, I'm not optimistic.

    [–] WIBTA if I said something to my sons prek about him not getting a single egg at their egg hunt today? rtmfb 2 points ago in AmItheAsshole

    NTA at all. Raise hell. No real way to fix it this time, but it never happening this way again would still be a good thing.

    [–] WIBTA for not going to my sisters wedding because of the ridiculous "requirements" rtmfb 1 points ago in AmItheAsshole

    NTA. It's tacky AF. We recently declined a wedding invitation that wanted gifts unwrapped and labeled with their value. Your story reminded me strongly of that.
