U.S.’s Oldest Cave and Rock Art Discovered in Tennessee
At more than 6,000 years old, prehistoric cave and rock art found in what is today Tennessee is easily the oldest discovered yet within the United States. The art is also the most widespread collection found anywhere in the U.S., according to a new paper in the journal Antiquity that documents the art. The extensive cave and rock art provides intriguing clues about what life was like for Native societies more than 6,000 years ago.
As someone who’s been rather frustrated at zero luck getting anyone to date me (albeit as a woman, which society craps on and treats as a loser even more than a guy who can’t get a date, but anyhoo), there’s just zero useful non-crappy advice out there for folks like us. It’s either PUA/”The Rules” sort of poisonous junk, laughing at you for being a loser, or “just be yourself and pray you win the cosmic lottery of finding the only person who could possibly like you as you are, before you die”.
There’d be a great untapped market for anyone who can give surefire tips on how to turn yourself from terminally single to successful in finding love without said tips being creepy or degrading to either yourself or the sex you’re pursuing.
Take up interesting hobbies and actively work on figuring out what you need (that is not a significant other) to improve yourself as a person.
As a standup comedian I’ve forgotten the name of once put it, “you shouldn’t be looking for someone to make you whole, you should be two wholes rolling together”
basically don’t put unwarranted importance on relationships/being in a relationships. being single isn’t necessarily a bane or a curse; if anything, it allows you more free time to focus on yourself
So being single is ‘terminal’, like cancer? Well if you think you’re sick and gross, then why shouldn’t everyone else? If you have to ‘degrade’ yourself to get a date, why would you want to be with that person? You’d have to be degrading to yourself full time then! That’s like deciding to only eat Doritos and Mountain Dew because “that’s what gamers like”.
Being single is the opportunity to shamelessly be yourself. Love dinosaurs? Draw them, dig them up, buy books about them and study them, find forums online and make friends with other people who love them, go to dino cons and parties. Don’t care about those other people in “society”, if they cared about you they wouldn’t fill your head with toxic thoughts about yourself that only make things worse.
UGH my mpp3 player has shitty software, it’s a SANSA, I got cheap to be backup that can play back basically, BUT the stupid thing doesn’t just update with NEW music OHNO if that option exists I can’t fucking find it.
SO my clever ass makes a playlist with just new stuff, but the stupid fucking thing DELETES EVERYTHING ON THERE
so now i have to go and do research on this shit when I don’t even use it much since my car has a shitty stereo with no input jack (and a dying clock, lol)
This is what the west side of the yard looks like. the high ground behind the house all drains down toward it, and since the ditches haven’t been finished it all runs into the yard and down the drive way :p
