The shopping cart theory copypasta

The shopping cart is the ultimate litmus test for whether a person is capable of self-governing.
To return the shopping cart is an easy, convenient task and one which we all recognize as the correct, appropriate thing to do. To return the shopping cart is objectively right. There are no situations other than dire emergencies in which a person is not able to return their cart. Simultaneously, it is not illegal to abandon your shopping cart. Therefore the shopping cart presents itself as the apex example of whether a person will do what is right without being forced to do it. No one will punish you for not returning the shopping cart, no one will fine you or kill you for not returning the shopping cart, you gain nothing by returning the shopping cart. You must return the shopping cart out of the goodness of your own heart. You must return the shopping cart because it is the right thing to do. Because it is correct.
A person who is unable to do this is no better than an animal, an absolute savage who can only be made to do what is right by threatening them with a law and the force that stands behind it.
The Shopping Cart is what determines whether a person is a good or bad member of society.

Nasty stuff

! warning: description of gorey gross things !

Foot Taco AMA

If you could ethically eat human meat, would you do it? These guys said yes! u/IncrediblyShinyShart on Reddit had a motorcycle incident and had to amputate his foot, so he decided to keep it to cook a piece for himself and his friends! Here the link to the Ask Me Anything that also includes an imgur link to photos of the process.
I'm obsessed with this story, I don't think I'd have the guts to do it but it's so cool that someone did!

That photo of Hisasci Ouchi

If you're intrested in morbid stuff you've probably heard of the story of Hisashi Ouchi, the man who was exposed to a very high dose of radiation and was kept alive for way too long. (to learn more search 1999 Tokaimura nuclear accident) And if you've heard of him, you've certianly seen that gory photo of a man with no skin laying on an hospital bed with suspended limbs.

my recreation because the original is very nsfl
Well, IT'S NOT HIM!!! IT'S NOT HIIIIIIIIIIIMMMMMMM. And yet, every damn website uses that photo!! This pisses me off so much. You can tell because the man has an amputated foot, which Ouchi-san coudn't have because the wound would have never closed, all of his chromosones were in pieces! Also, the room and the medical equipment don't match.
The person in the photo is probably a burn victim. Spread the word I guess?

Guardia di Finanza there's no need to look here :)))

Homebrew for the 3DS

Homebrewing 3DSs was a pain in the ass in the past, but now it's so easy that I managed to make it!
All you need is: a 3DS, a computer with Internet connection, an SD card, and a way to move files into it. Then you can follow the 3ds.hacks.guide to install LUMA3Ds, and/or follow a tutorial on Youtube (I think this channel is very n00b friendly, I followed one of his tutorials)

With a homebrewed consoles you can play 3Ds games from cia-3ds and DS ones from Emuparadise (Emuparadise script workaround ;) ), backup and edit save files (looking @ u ACNL,here's a cool town editor), install custom themes, and a bunch of other nerdy stuff

Mother 1+2+3 for the Wii!

It's a game made by Marcel Oliveira, or marcelso, that allows you to play all the Mother games on your Wii! Here's a video that shows what it looks like.

Tutorial (I wish I knew how to turn it into a channel :/):

You need the Homebrew Channel already installed (don't worry it's not difficoult. I like these tutorials ), an SD card and a way to put files into it (it must be in the Wii to play), and the game ROMs (I got them from here The pre-patched ones, don't make my mistake :p)

  • download the Mother 1+2+3 zip file from here ;
  • extract the folder "[v1.1]Mother123" in your SD card;
  • open "[v1.1]Mother123" folder. Go to app-> mother123-> roms. Put the roms in here;
  • Rename Mother 1 "HVCMX.nes", Mother 2 "SHVCMB.smc" and Mother 3 "A3UJ.gba";
  • put the SD in the Wii and load the Homebrew Channel!
  • I hope it works because if it doesn't I have no idea what went wrong :/

The Secret of Santa

In our family, we have a special way of transitioning the kids from receiving from Santa, to becoming a Santa. This way, the Santa construct is not a lie that gets discovered, but an unfolding series of good deeds and Christmas spirit.
When they are 8 or 9—whenever you see that dawning suspicion that Santa may not be a material being— that means the child is ready.
I take them out "for coffee." We get a booth, order our drinks, and the following pronouncement is made:
“You sure have grown an awful lot this year. Not only are you taller, but I can see that your heart has grown, too.” I point out 2-3 examples of empathetic behavior, consideration of people's feelings, good deeds etc, the kid has done in the past year.
“In fact, your heart has grown so much that I think you are ready to become a Santa Claus. You probably have noticed that most of the Santas you see are people dressed up like him. Some of your friends might have even told you that there is no Santa. A lot of children think that, because they aren't ready to BE a Santa yet, but YOU ARE.
“Tell me the best things about Santa. What does Santa get for all of his trouble? We work our way from "cookies" to the good feeling of having done something for someone else. “Well, now YOU are ready to do your first job as a Santa!"
Now for the fun part! Make sure you maintain the proper conspiratorial tone.
We then have the child choose someone they know--a neighbor, usually. The child's mission is to secretly, deviously, find out something that the person needs, and then provide it, wrap it, deliver it--and never, ever reveal to the target where it came from. Being a Santa isn't about getting credit, you see. It's about unselfish giving.
My oldest chose the "witch lady" on the corner. She really was horrible--had a fence around the house and would never let the kids go in and get a stray ball or frisbee. She'd even yell at them to play quieter. He noticed that she came out every morning to get her paper in bare feet, so he decided she needed slippers.
His next task was to go spy on her and decide how big her feet were. He hid in the bushes one Saturday, and decided she wore a medium, so we went and bought warm slippers. He wrapped them up, and tagged it "Merry Christmas from Santa." After dinner, he slipped down to her house, and slid the package under her driveway gate.
The next morning, we watched as she waddled out to get the paper, picked up the present, and went inside. My son could hardly contain his excitement, and couldn't wait to see what would happen next. The next morning, as we drove off, there she was, out getting her paper--wearing the slippers. He was ecstatic. I had to remind him that NO ONE could ever know what he did, or he wouldn't be a Santa.
Over the years, he chose a good number of targets, always coming up with a unique present just for them. One year he chose the daughter of some friends of ours, who were going through some tough times. Christmas for them was looking pretty bleak. With the help of his father, he polished up his bike, put a new seat on it, and with her parents’ permission, placed it on their back porch. The look on her face when she saw the bike with a big bow on it was almost as good as the look on my son's face.
When it came time for Son #2 to join the ranks, my oldest came along, and helped with the induction speech. They are both excellent gifters, by the way, and never felt that they had been lied to—because, instead, they were let in on the Secret of Being a Santa.
