I watched Spider-Man: No Way Home and it's fantastic. Right up there with Spider-Man 2 in terms of quality. But I think I still liked Far From Home a bit more.

Cute and honest Sega Saturn fan, also noone should buy Sega grrrr, Sega for life.

I was diagnosed with OCD well into my thirties. It was always there I guess but it never rared its ugly face until after I had kids.

My wife would buy magic sand, and slime for the kids. Things I've never really interacted with. And seeing them play with it would drive my absolutely crazy even though they weren't always necessarily making a mess. I'd always need reassurance from my wife that she had everything contained and they wouldn't dirty up the furniture or walls.

One day I came home from work and they were finger painting and I absolutely went bonkers. I could not for the life of me put into words why these kinds of things unnerved and bothered me, but it persisted to the point where I had to see a professional because I knew something was wrong.

Saw the doctor, diagnosed me with OCD after a couple weeks, gave me some anxiety medications that made me nauseous 24/7, and I stopped taking them. I also stopped seeing the doctor.

I've just trained myself the last three years to not let these things bother me anymore, my wife is more understanding when I blabber on about the kids jumping on our bed with dirty feet, or when they come back into the house after spending an afternoon on the beach, but for the most part, I catch myself before I allow the anxiety to sink in.

As a fellow OCD sufferer, I know how hard it can be. Finding the right medication that helps without causing issues can be tricky too, though eventually I was able to and it improved my quality of life massively. I also found cognitive behavioral therapy, meditation, and mindfulness helpful.

I have wondered on several occasions whether I would ever be able to handle having kids given my issues with contamination, dirt, etc.

Sending you best wishes.

Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023. (And over 130 million lifetime)

Late Christmas post.


What I used for breakfast this month - got these from my local Hobby Lobby.




Nativity set built in my living room.




Christmas Tree with alternating lights.




Stairway decorated






Christmas Dinner - Rice with Buffalo Meat, Chicken Curry, Mutton Stew, Green Cabbage Thoran, Potato and Carrot, Salmon Fish Curry, Fried Catfish, Mushroom Curry, and Moru Curry.

Nothing beats homemade food.

That looks awesome!



Can anybody find video footage of amusement rides back in 1846? or earliest ? to see how deadly they were back then ? I wanna see them in action in the 1800's and how scary it was they broke down midway or unsafe they were those early days at the amusement parks.

The first known video recording is from 1888.
So there's no such footage from the time period you're looking for.

Videos from 1846 or earlier? There were no videos back then.
