My wife's stepbrother is a heroin addict. He always needs money for drugs. He never says he needs it for drugs. It's always a huge victim story, sometimes even including how he got clean and needs money for rehab or school, etc. When her father died, he made the mistake of attending the funeral in hopes of gaining sympathy and more money. Unfortunately it was where, gathered in one room, there were dozens of people he had told different stories to. The minute he started peddling for cash as a grieving son, which was almost immediately, people began ringing in to one another about how much money he got from them over the past years. It came to well over five digits in total history, and everyone had a different victim story from him.
OP posts asking for information on how he can learn to lucid dream, stating that it will help keep him calm in prison as he has been sentenced to 7-20 years.
Sounds like he figured that'd be the closest thing from drugs that he can use in prison. This shit is sad and infuriating as fuck, I hope it's bullshit.
Just saying this all looks familiar. A guy with a history of doing nothing but sitting around taking addictive drugs needs money (because woe is him for his recent struggles of which he is a hapless victim).
Addicts typically have zero qualms with shameless deception. The ends justify all means. Pulling at your heart strings to get more money out of you is just a tool, nothing more. They do it because it works, nothing more. How you might feel about it beforehand, or after you find out you've been played, is irrelevant. If you confront them about it, they might admit they lied, because now they can set you up again later for a new one. They don't care how pathetic they get in your eyes. It doesn't matter. Only getting the drug matters.
maybe her daughter saw it on reddit and passed it off to her parent as if it was her own original idea
13 year olds can usually read and often have internet access, so it wouldn't be unheard of
I used to do this shit all the time with jokes from different sources.
Yeah, that's what I was thinking. It's not like no one is on /sub/showerthoughts when they're 13
Edit: Fixed grammar
Who the fuck would think that is London, or think that they have a big enough space for all those people?
Denial is not just a river in London
This doesn’t even look like London.
I can't think of a single person who would look at that picture and think it was London. It is very obviously in the desert, to begin with.
The joys of photoshop.
I heard rumors that Adobe is working on a tool that you can scan images to and be notified if image manipulation has occurred. A de-photoshopper if you will.
Could be a good tool - if they make it free to use.
T_D spreading fake news? Who ever would have thought? /s
So, it won't be a good tool? This is Adobe, after all
This is an important issue and we mustn’t tolerate it. Upvote this post and get to /sub/all!
You missed removing a username. The one on the reddit post. You should fix and resubmit.
Reddit running PR for Elon Musk?
I'm shocked /s
You blocked out the username but left the username in the reply tweet?
I am so stupid...should I take it down?
I am not the sharpest tool in the shed
To be fair, if her mother is abusive, she could be twisting it around.
We don't know the truth to this one. 3 sides to every story. She could be an idiot, her mom could be abusive and denies it or its a combination of the two.
Or her abusive mother could be the reason she's moving out, but she knows that people who don't know the situations won't sympathize with that as much.
Did anyone honestly think he identified as a socialist?
Loads of people.
Reports that I am a top donor to GOP are categorically false. I am not a top donor to any political party.
this is just classic Elon Musk "no u"
You skipped the best part about his reddit account being discovered and his comment about loving Jennifer Lawrences butthole pics.
He asked a question at a town-hall style presidential debate in 2016. He became an internet sensation because everything about him was meme-worthy. His name, his red sweater, his size, his hair, his mustache, his voice, etc. It was mostly positive, like a "Ken Bone won our hearts" type of thing. Here's the Know Your Meme page on him, and here's the section about him from the Wikipedia article on the 2016 debates.
It's probably fake to remind us about Ken Bone.
Who's Ken Bone?
