  1. 2019, an espresso odyssey

    I drink instant coffee mornings because I am lazy, but have to admit ground beans taste the best. Machines are very expensive though.   Thanks for sharing the video lisa13. It looks very interesting.
  2. The New Gillette Social Awareness Campaign

      Job well done. We really do not need that kind of abuse and intolerance here. I am speechless by the comments made. No words at all. It is disgraceful.
  3. The New Gillette Social Awareness Campaign

    I read this article today about a man who transitioned and then changed his mind. Heartbreaking stuff. (see link below)
  4. Wisdom from pop music

    " Love is objectified By what men say is right Scheiße, scheiße be mine Bullshit, be mine Blonde high-heeled feminists Enlisting femmes for this Express your womankind Fight for your right When I'm on a mission I rebuke my condition If you're a strong female You don't need permission"   "Lady Gaga- Scheisse"
  5. Latest news on the topic. Iran has admitted the plane was accidentally shot down (see links below)
  6. What are you listening to right now?

    All this ranting about toxicity etc... Got me in the mood for listening to!     What a classic!   And...      
  7. Diet Culture Rant

    I cannot stand it. It makes me sick to my stomach.   I understand 100% if someone has to change their diet due to a disease, an allergy or for genuine health reasons, but these dieting regimes are insane. We have so many eating disorders and it is effecting younger people, even children.   Addiction is very real, and yet food addiction is not taken seriously. There is no rehab or help. Just stupid dieting regimes shoved down our throats.   Worst still, dieting slows your metabolism down. Strips you of vital nutrients.     This is so true. It also strengthens bones as well. Very good to prevent osteoporosis.   People should be looking to eat smaller portions for example if they want to lose weight, same food just less.   But hell yeah, life is too short! I find it terrible how after new year you always see excercising clothes and equipment in all the leaflets. All these fad diets...

    Here is in my view a few examples of both toxic masculinity and toxic femininity imposed by Gender "norms" by society.   Of course, every country and culture may have different ones. I speak for the west. It is just my opinion and what I have seen or experienced.   Toxic Masculinity Men have to be big and muscular ( young men may "buff" up, taking dangerous anabolic steroids for example) Men do not cry ( Supressing emotions, that may build up causing strokes, heart attacks depression, not going to seek medical help etc) Real men do not do housework ( If they live alone, their home may become like a hoarders palace, if they have a partner it puts stress on them as they have double the work leading to relationship issues. Or reinforces the third point of toxic femininity below) Toxic Femininity Women have to be slim (Anorexia and other eating disorders) Women have big breasts ( unnessasary surgical procedures such as breast implants) I do not have to work when I have a husband to keep me! -Even if children are older or there is no reason why they cannot go to work ( Partner has to get two jobs to support the finances, if he is toxic in his belief of not doing the housework, this can be reinforced! How can a woman work when she has so much housework that her partner refuses to help with?) Thus the reinforce each other over and over again.   There are many more that I could list, but these kind of behaviours help to keep the status quo.
  9. Is Prince Harry revolting?

    Here is an article about a man who like "Harry" also quit his family. It is very interesting. True indeed, if someone or something is toxic it is better to cut ties.
  10. The New Gillette Social Awareness Campaign

      I agree, it is just weird. Never heard about it until I moved to Germany and heard people discussing it, which I also thought was weird....
  11. The New Gillette Social Awareness Campaign

    And there is not only Toxic Masculinity, but also Toxic femininity.   Why do so many women get breast implants? Anorexia etc etc...   This video is very interesting and discusses the topic of "Toxic femininity and Toxic masculinity"   It is really good and shows how they in a sense reinforce each other. Well worth watching.     These gender stereotypes are just ridiculous. They are bad for everyone.

      This is something I never understood. As long as the urine goes into the bowl where is the problem? Who cares and who has the right to decide how someone takes a piss? The only logical explanation was the "shit" tray they used to have in the old German toilets, which in effect made the urine rebound out of the toilet. Deflected it! With the modern new toilets this is no longer an issue.   No idea if I posted this before, but this song always makes me laugh.     Oh and this advert      
  13. Apparently they have invited Boeing to investigate (see link below)   They should just hand over the black box and let the investigators do their job.
