2022.01.21 16:30 ualsw1 So I think my dad tried to convince me to not be atheist today.
So today, my dad recommended that I should start saying prayers and asking god to help me when I’m struggling, the devil is keeping me closed minded about the existence of god by putting thoughts into my head, and I should read the Bible and seek spirituality and religion (he tried to backpedal that, saying he doesn’t like the word “religion.”
He also talked about how he went to Florida and asked god to show his brother how he can eat healthier via golf. (My parents and I to an lesser extent are basically on a keto diet and fast sometimes, along with my parents working out). So he played with 64 other golf players, some were “really good”, but he won the game (first time!) and gave credit to god (my parents did play golf at least a few times over the summer). The day before, his brother asked if he wanted an alcoholic drink, he turned it down and said that it was the devil/evil spirits using his brother to stop him from showing him how to be healthy. He had a cigar later that day, and he thought that his body wouldn’t handle it (he has cigars every so often, mainly for special events), and he had some sort of bad reaction to it, but he was fine the next day. Then he went on to talk about the human body was amazing and how the brain knows how to do so many things and how the liver can take care of alcohol and turn it into pee.
From there, he jumped to how when I start a family, the family structure that god wanted should be with god at the top, husband (me), wife, and children at the bottom (the last time he talked about gods’ family structure, he didn’t even separate the wife and children as categories). He said he regretted not asking mom to end her career in the navy to start a family when they got married (they were like early to mid twenties when they got married), and said I shouldn’t have a long term marriage with a women who wants a career because it would be bad for the family as a whole, and the only way I would be happy long term is to have children. I guess god made a mistake, because I’m bisexual - and I’m not letting my parents know that. I’m not making the same mistake twice.
I guess what I’m sure he genuinely wants to motivate me, but I don’t think he needs to push he’s religion into me to do so, right? And the worst part is, when I first told my parents (separately) that I was atheist, they seemed to accept it and kind of it respect it. Now in the past year, they’ve went from generally conservative to basically proposing a fascist theocratic state in America, thanks them discovering people like Kevin Samuels, Jordan Peterson and Jesse Lee Peterson - with my dad said he agreed with the Taliban’s (he’s fine with other religions, just not atheists) idea of keeping women in the house and proposed boys and girls should have separate education after elementary school, and that black people “deserve to go extinct because of high abortion rates” (were black btw). Meanwhile, my mom wants young people who criticize systemic racism in America should be kicked out of their homes and onto the streets to make them appreciate the country they live in.
Anyway, I think this post is long enough. Just wanted to see what you guys think, and maybe some support would be nice too.

2022.01.21 16:30 Iliketoasts Need help with CPU & RAM overclockin on lenovo legion Legion Y520-15IKBN
I am a begginer tabletop RPG streamer. Recently i have switched from roll 20 to foundry VTT (running on dedicated server not my PC). Running browser connected to the VTT alongside OBS and discord (from which i stream cams) makes everything extremely laggy to the point i am losing connection. At this moment i am doing everything to optimise my setup and was reccomended to look into overclocking RAM by fellow streamers on twitch.
Would anyone be so kinda as to share knowledge and experience? I have already looked into XPM but it seems lenovo laptops don't support it. Is there any other way to do it or is it completly unachievable? Is overclocking ony my kind of laptop even a good idea?

I have a vintage Moto Guzzi motorcycle jacket that belonged to my god father. The problem is he was 5'6, 150lbs and I'm 6'4, 220lbs. I really want to wear it in some fashion so I was thinking perhaps there is a way to turn it into a new jacket using the raw materials but i have no idea where to start and I do not have the skill to be able to do this myself. Could someone provide me with some direction in how to go about getting a project like this commissioned?

2022.01.21 16:30 gryphonlord [28M] Sudden Throb in Temple Left Me Lightheaded
A few minutes ago I was lying on my side, temple rested on my hand, when suddenly I felt this sudden massive throb. It seemed to be centered in the temple I was resting on my hand, but the sensation hit my whole body. I felt lightheaded for about a minute after. I immediately did some tests to check for concerning symptoms, but speech was fine, nothing was numb, and limbs all worked well. For additional context: I had also been drinking coffee and had a headache from that and from too much screentime. I'm young (20s) and while not fit, I'm not in bad health (bmi is 30, but I only have a "dad bod." Number seems to be skewed because I have some muscle). Kinda worrying myself sick about this, so anything helps.
5'11", 215 lbs. On antidepressants. I've had several surgeries, but no other relevant history.
