The day finally came this week. I just found out today that my junkie "cousin" fatally OD'ed two days ago. I put "cousin" in quotes because my mother was adopted. My mother knew exactly where she stood as her adoptive parents were quick to tell her, "Blood is thicker than water." After hearing the refrain throughout much of your life, you grow bitter and disgusted, but frankly, we're both thankful to God we share not one drop of blood with these people

My cousin was a malignant tumor given a human shape. Because of this woman's terrible childhood, grandpa pitied her endlessly. Even as recently as a year ago, he kept saying, "She's just a big kid," because she would always be the 5-year-old girl he'd stare at on his refrigerator door. I don't know what inspired her to take drugs, but I can tell you that she indeed suffered the worst possible circumstances growing up. Her father committed suicide before she was six months old. Her mother is a consummate grifter who shacks up with the lowest of low lives.

My cousin's teenage obsession with Kurt Cobain partly explains her inclination towards hard drugs, but she grew up with an endless stream of pain. She either decided early on that her prospects in life would be minimal (her mother did frequently berate her) or perhaps she simply had no interest in being productive, and what better way to explore new sensations than continually ingest newer and newer highs. Getting high simultaneously helped alleviate the pain of her childhood trauma and kept her close in spirit to the celebrities she idolized. Her grandpa would unconditionally support her, so the incentive to grow up simply didn't exist. In the end, grandpa viewed his granddaughter as a child who desperately needed to be nurtured.

>Or she knowingly probably tried to play the "I'm a victim" card from having a shitty life. But at the end of the day, it's actively choosing to be as shitty a person as possible.

This pretty much nails it. We live in a culture that incentivizes victimhood, and she had a sufficiently wide network of people that would never once question her most egregious behaviors, let alone do anything to correct her. All that mattered to her was he insatiable need to live a life free of pain and strife. Everyone was either just a means to her ends or simply there to validate her existence. Grandpa happily did both.

Even if you excuse her addictions and the actual grief she caused others (several people claim she stole from them), she never cultivated a meaningful relationships with others that went beyond partying or sharing an experience. All she could muster is buying friends with grandpa's money.

What's particularly fascinating is going through my cousin's party pictures with her usual bevy of bitches. Almost all of them were having the time of their lives while she just stood there on the periphery concealing her despair with false joy. Deep down inside, she knew these people were nothing more than fair-weather friends who'd drop her the instant she became a liability.

What a fucking mess of family, but such things were actually pretty common in the past. /pol/ keeps talking about how raising someone else's kid is being a "cuck", but the truth is that many families did this back then but that the adoptees were meant to be lower members of the family, kept outside of the core of the family, and used more for work, helping mother or father in their respective works. Your grandpa was probably a transition generation, on one hand he made it clear that your mother wasn't his blood (because that's probably how he learned it from older generations), but on the other he probably didn't use her for work.

In my experience bees are especially pettable. They're normally pretty laid back about being pet by humans both carpenter bees and honey bees. Do note: I am talking about actual bees, not wasps. Wasps tend to be way more ornery and like acts will try to attack your finger. Unlike ants they actually hurt. Petting moths and butterflies can be dangerous to the insect because it can rub off all their scales especially wings. You'll notice if you hold or capture one you'll be coated in the sheen of their scales.

Ultimately I really did stop worrying and began loving the botnet. Although I suppose this is in great part due to the incompetency of Portuguese authorities.

Worry or not, fight it nonetheless. Fighting an established system is one way to find purpose and stay motivated. It's a struggle with the potential to give hope while allowing for a just self-image. It's also the right thing to do.

How many of whom you speak to "online" are mentally ill? Most of them

Since discovering imageboards in 2003 I know from experience every user of every imageboard devolves into this: https://kohlchan.net/int/res/920547.html

Every thread they participate in eventually becomes dominated by this

What's the answer? The internet held no answers for people with "lost years due to internet browsing" and it still doesn't. And people still don't understand time spent on the computer isn't real life, but the time lost is real. So can either people get on with it and make the best of what they have or can they create an online community for people with lost years, to leave boards for those not in a depressed state.

I was sure we already had a thread about math, but I can't find it in the catalogue. So here is a new one.

And I'll just start it off with a question that I have trouble finding a conclusive answer to:
In a vector space the subspace spanned by the rows is perpendicular to the kernel, it is also orthogonal to it; is there a difference between perpendicularity and orthogonality of subspaces?
This relates to: If I have brought a matrix into rref with Gauss-Jordan, I can simply read a basis for the column space from the first r pivot columns (r being the rank of the matrix) and I'm wondering if I can read something about the basis of the kernel from the remaining columns (or rows?).
