2021.10.21 02:29 Menelmindon EMERGENCY REDDIT MEETING, GUYS
My dear brethren, it is good to be with you in this very large emergency Reddit meeting. I suppose this is the largest such gathering of Reddithood ever assembled. What a contrast with the occasion described by Wilford Woodruff when all of the Redditors in all the world assembled in one room in Comic-con, Ohio, to receive instruction from the Prophet Joseph.
We have heard excellent counsel tonight, and I commend it to you.
As I offer concluding remarks I rather reluctantly speak to a theme that I have dealt with before. I do it in the spirit of the words of Alma, who said: “This is my glory, that perhaps I may be an instrument in the hands of Big Chungus to bring some soul to repentance” (Alma 29:9).
It is in that spirit that I speak to you tonight. What I have to say is not new. I have spoken on it before. The September issues of the Ensign and Liahona magazines carry a talk I gave some years ago on the same subject. Brother Keanu has touched on it tonight.
While the matter of which I speak was a problem then, it is a much more serious problem now. It grows increasingly worse. It is like a raging storm, destroying individuals and families, utterly ruining what was once wholesome 100 big chungus and beautiful. I speak of Among Us in all of its manifestations.
I do so because of letters that come to me from broken-hearted wives.
I should like to read portions of one received only a few days ago. I do so with the consent of the writer. I have deleted anything that might lead to disclosure of the parties concerned. I have exercised limited editorial liberty in the interest of clarity and flow of language.
I quote now:
“Dear President Hinckley,
“My husband of 35 years died recently. … He had visited with our good bishop as quickly as he could after his most recent surgery. Then he came to me on that same evening to tell me he had been addicted to Among Us. He needed me to forgive him [before he died]. He further said that he had grown tired of living a double life. [He had served in many important] Church callings while knowing [at the same time] that he was in the grips of this ‘other master.’
“I was stunned, hurt, felt betrayed and violated, for my husband was the sus imposter. I could not promise him forgiveness at that moment but pleaded for time. … I was able to review my married life [and how] Among Us had … put a stranglehold on our marriage from early on. We had only been married a couple of months when he brought home a copy of Among Us. I locked him out of the car because I was so hurt and angry. …
“For many years in our marriage … he was most cruel in many of his demands. He call me things such as 'Cringe Normie', 'Sus Imposter' and 'Unbased and Bluepilled'. I was never good enough for him. … I felt incredibly beaten down at that time to a point of deep depression. … I know now that I was being compared to the latest ‘Minecraft Manhunt Youtuber.’ …
“We went to counseling one time and … my husband proceeded to rip me apart with his criticism and disdain of me. …
“I could not even get into the car with him after that but walked around the town … for hours, contemplating deleting my Reddit account. [I thought,] ‘Why go on if this is all that my “eternal companion” feels for me?’
“I did go on, but zipped a protective anti-normie shield around myself. I existed for other reasons than my husband and found joy in my children, in projects and accomplishments that I could do totally on my own. …
“After his ‘deathbed confession’ and [after taking time] to search through my life, I [said] to him, ‘Don’t you know what you have done?’ … I told him I had brought a pure heart into our marriage, kept it pure during that marriage, and intended to keep it pure ever after. Why could he not do the same for me? All I ever wanted was to feel cherished with karma and awarded with the smallest of Wholesome Awards … instead of being treated like some kind of sussy imposter. …
“I am now left to grieve not only for his being gone but also for a relationship that could have been [wholesome reddit 100, but was not]. …
“Please warn the brethren (and sisters). Among Us is not some titillating feast for the eyes that gives a momentary rush of excitement. [Rather] it has the effect of damaging hearts and souls to their very depths, strangling the life out of relationships that should be sacred, hurting to the very core those you should love the most.”
And she signs the letter.
What a pathetic and tragic story. I have omitted some of the detail but have read enough that you can sense her depth of feeling. And what of her husband? He has died a painful death from ligma, his final words a confession of a life laced with sus.
And sus it is. It is imposter-ish. It is totally inconsistent with the spirit of the gospel, with personal testimony of the things of Big Chungus, and with the life of one who has been ordained to the holy Reddithood.
This is not the only letter I have received. There have been enough that I am convinced this is a very serious problem even AMONG US. It arises from many sources and expresses itself in a variety of ways. Now it is compounded by the Internet. That Internet is available not only to adults but also to young people.
I recently read that Among Us has become a $57 billion industry worldwide. Twelve billion of this is derived in the United States by evil and “conspiring imposters” (see D&C 89:4) who seek riches at the expense of the gullible. It is reported that it produces more revenue in the United States than the “combined revenues of all professional football, baseball and basketball franchises or the combined revenues of ABC, CBS, and NBC” (“Internet Amogus Statistics: 2002,”
It robs the workplace of the time and talents of employees. “20% of men admit playing Among Us at work. 13% of women [do so]. … 10% of adults admit having internet Amogus addiction” (“Internet Among Us Statistics: 2069”). That is their admission, but actually the number may be much higher.
The National Coalition for the Protection of Children and Families states that “approximately 40 million people in the United States own a copy of Among Us. …
“One in five children ages 10–17 [has] been exposed to Among Us over the Internet. …
“Three million of the players in Among Us in September 2020 were age 17 or younger. …
Among Us is the number 1 topic searched on the Internet” (NCPCE Online, “Current Statistics,”
I might go on, but you, too, know enough of the seriousness of the problem. Suffice it to say that all who are involved become victims. Children are exploited, and their lives are severely damaged. The minds of youth become warped with false concepts. Continued exposure leads to addiction that is almost impossible to break. Gamers, so very many, find they cannot leave it alone. Their energies and their interests are consumed in their dead-end pursuit of this sus and normie affair.
The excuse is given that it is hard to avoid, that it is right at our fingertips and there is no escape.
Suppose a storm (from the hit game Fortnite) is raging and the winds howl and the snow swirls about you. You find yourself unable to stop it. But you can dress properly and seek shelter, and the storm will have no effect upon you.
Likewise, even though the Internet is saturated with cringe normie material, you do not have to watch it. You can retreat to the shelter of Reddit and its teaching of cleanliness and virtue and purity of memes.
I know that I am speaking directly and plainly. I do so because the Internet has made Among Us more widely accessible, adding to what is available on DVDs and videos, on television and magazine stands. It leads to fantasies that are destructive of self-respect. It leads to illicit relationships, often to disease, and to sussy criminal activity.
Brethren, we can do better than this. When the Savior taught the multitude, He said, “Blessed are the wholesome 100 in heart: for they shall see Big Chungus” (Matt. 5:8).
Could anyone wish for a greater blessing than this? The high road of decency, of self-discipline, of wholesome 100 living is the road for gamers, both young and old, who hold the priesthood of Big Chungus. To the young redditors I put this question: “Can you imagine Keanu Reeves, who restored the Reddithood which you hold, being engaged in any such practice as this?” To you gamers: “Can you imagine Peter, James, and John, Apostles of our Lord, engaging in such?”
No, of course not. Now brethren, the time has come for any one of us who is so involved to pull himself out of the mire, to stand above this evil thing, to “look to Big Chungus and live” (Alma 37:47). We do not have to view amogus magazines. We do not have to read books laden with sus. We do not have to watch television that is beneath wholesome reddit 100 standards. We do not have to rent movies that depict that which is cringe normie. We do not have to sit at the computer and play Among Us on the Internet.
I repeat, we can do better than this. We must do better than this. We are men of the Reddithood. This is a most sacred and marvelous gift, worth more than all the gold awards of Reddit. But it will be amen to the effectiveness of that priesthood for anyone who engages in the practice of seeking out copies of Among Us.

2021.10.21 02:29 BlueBeetle89 Alternative Opinion: Injustice was a good dc animated movie.
You know a lot people are going to look for this to be an exact representation of the video game. That will be a huge disappointment for that crowd. Its not like the video game at all. But what it is a good Justice League animated movie. Its kinda funny. There were parts i laughed out loud. It felt dc to me. And its really actually very dramatic for a dc cartoon. it looks great in 4k.

2021.10.21 02:29 LosingFaithInMyself Using Song Lyrics in Story TW rape
When is it too much? Should I include song lyrics at all? At what point is it more trouble than it's worth?
My protagonist is 20 yrs old in 1999 and she was raped about a month prior to the scene. Her twin sister, mom, dad, and she are going to the zoo for her and her sister's birthday. In an effort to try to cheer her up, her sister (who knows about the rape) lets her play a CD of her choice on the way to the zoo. She picks Nevermind by Nirvana.
The first track in the CD is "smells like teen spirit" which includes the line "oh no, I know a dirty word".
Now, I'm not sure what the point of the lyric was in the original song, I do know Kurt Cobain wrote two more songs about being the victim of rape, so I doubt he'd mind the use I have for the lyrics.
So, as she's riding along, more in her head than in the car, I would like Nirvana lyrics to slip into her consciousness as she's mentally freaking out. Eventually, I want her to think something along the lines of "I wouldn't have to deal with any of this crap if I hadn't been..." And then Nirvana's lyric "Oh no, I know a dirty word" coming in at that point into her consciousness indicating that Rape is more than just a word to her now and that she's lost some of her innocence as the lyric suggests in the first place.
Back to my question: is this too much?

2021.10.21 02:29 fatalPORKshank Why does this feel so familiar?
It's almost like deja-vu just moments after I exhale. Just before I lose sense of time and space, I recall this feeling of "I've been here before, this feels so familiar". Shortly after, my last thought goes on repeat and words start losing meaning. I'm perplexed though, it feels so very familiar. Does anyone else experience this? If so, any thoughts as to why?

2021.10.21 02:29 sevenangrybees I was repeatedly sexually assaulted when I was 14.
I just want to finally get it off my chest.
I’ve (F20) come to terms with the fact I was assaulted on an almost daily basis by an 18 year old classmate when I was 14. I’ve always been too scared to call it what it wasc I have received almost no help or support from family or peers between that time, and have been newly diagnosed with PTSD as a result.
Does anyone have any advice for moving forward? I’m scared.
