2021.12.05 02:45 QuokkasMakeMeSmile History/Science/Lit jokes in Feet of Clay?
Rereading Feet of Clay, I noticed that when they are trying to remove possible sources of arsenic from Vetinari’s room, it’s noted that they remove “everything but the wallpaper.” Later, Vimes is back in Vetinari’s room, worrying about how suspicious he is, and jokes that he “might as well accuse the wallpaper of driving [someone] mad,” then thinks “that horrible green color could drive anyone mad.”
Both of these seem to reference the fact that in the Victorian era, green wallpaper was incredible fashionable, and also dyed with arsenic, (which slowly poisoned the inhabitants of the home). The latter quotes also seem to be a nod to “The Yellow Wallpaper,” a 19th century short story by Charlotte Perkins Gilman where a woman is slowly driven mad by hallucinations she sees in her wallpaper.
I love rereading these books. I always pick up on incredibly subtle, clever jokes and references I missed before, no matter how many times I’ve read it before.

2021.12.05 02:44 Ching_Roc Had a gen 1 TB700 that lasted 5 years or so. Glue, and tape finally gave way. So I bought a pair of 9x (amazing deal) Playing on XSX. If I use the dial and equally split the chat/game mix my party echos. Moving it is either too much or too little of each. Any suggestions
So basically I got a new pair for 85.00 USD. Sound, fit, everything is nice. Sound is good, not senn hd600 good but those serve a different purpose. My old set I could walk to the restroom, even the kitchen no issues. These crap out one room over. The biggest issue I have is chat. That little area that is exactly in the middle of chat/game mix on the dial causes crazy echo for me. I can reposition the mic (,assuming it picks up speaker) it helps but I practically have to put it over my eye. If I move the dial in either direction the balance is drastic. Muted game or muted chat. I have Atmos and running that doesn't effect these problems that I notice. Any suggestions?
Do I need to upgrade firmware? My laptop is at my office, so Monday I could update... any other way to update firmware
I also bought some cushions (pleather) no real help either but feel better. Wicked cushions..
Any tips on prolonging life of these?

2021.12.05 02:44 CfaToAvoidLMI Did my baptism (on someone else) “count”
Hi all, so I’m just curious about an experience I had with my friend back when I was 17-18.
I was kind of raised Mormon, however I didn’t really follow the rules (I.e broke word of wisdom, law of chastity….regular teenage stuff) however I just pretended to be “good”. This allowed me to pass/bless the sacrament and go to the temple while obviously not being “worthy” to do so.
When I was 17 (priest level I believe) I also baptised one of my friends (after a night out of partying) which leads to think, assuming that this church is true, did my baptism on my friend “count”? Are they really a member even though I was no way worthy? Did all the sacrament and baptisms for the dead “count” even though I shouldn’t have been doing them?
Let me know what you guys think.

2021.12.05 02:44 throwaway-120321 I need help making sense of this
Throwaway account for safety and privacy.
I'm trying to keep this as concise and easy to read as possible, but it's a lot of information so it's a bit of a fool's errand. I have CPTSD. I've suspected on and off for a long time that I could have OSDD-1B, but I've been scared to pursue it or ask about it. Recently there's been a string of traumatic events in my life and it's brought up a lot of old fears, memories, feelings. I've been reflecting on myself and I'm honestly scared and don't know where to proceed from here.
When I was a kid and going through some of the most extreme trauma I would write in a journal and have arguments with myself. I felt like I was two people with each taking over the pen and taking turns writing. One side was often very angry, destructive, focused on revenge and protection. The other was more scared and wanted reconciliation with my parents and love. These conversations stopped happening after a traumatic incident where my mom found that journal and>! hurt me!<. I was too scared to journal again or continue them in any meaningful way. After I escaped a different traumatic situation I began experiencing age regression. I still feel sometimes like there's a part of me that's a scared kid or extremely angry and hurt, but I don't have conversations with them anymore.
After that, I started having more dissociation and depersonalization. Just not really feeling there, removed from my body, or like things were strange. I've felt very scattered in my identity for a long time, like I don't know what's really "myself" and what's just a front I put on for other people. People say my name and it's always felt so wrong to hear it, even though it's a name I chose. I feel like my emotions and responses are all over the place. One minute I'm the happiest, the next I'm the saddest. Sometimes I'm overtaken with anger or despair and then it shuts off all of a sudden like nothing's wrong at all. I don't feel fully in control of my mind or sometimes my words.
I don't have very many problems with amnesia to my knowledge. My childhood is kind of vague but I do have memories of it. Some things I remember very vividly. I don't remember when the actual trauma started and there are some events I know happened but it felt like it happened to someone else. It's just knowledge that it happened rather than a memory. There are other traumatic events and very extreme things my mom says I did but that I have absolutely no knowledge of. Sometimes I'd find myself coming to after an hour or two of just staring at a wall, completely unmoving and unaware of time, but that stopped a few years ago. Stuff like the age regression or talking with myself I don't have any amnesia with. That's why I suspect 1b since what I suspect is switching has not involved any amnesia.
A lot of this has improved since seeing my therapist for CPTSD. My dissociation and depersonalization has lessened and I feel more cohesive in my sense of self. However, as I mentioned, the string of traumatic events brought a lot of this back out. I'm kind of scared to talk about it with my therapist. I haven't mentioned it before in therapy. I tried talking with her last session, but I don't want to be seen as self-diagnosing, attention seeking, or crazy. I'm kind of terrified I am. I felt like I just clammed up, couldn't say what I actually feel is happening to her. I also feel like this is just weird, like I'm making this all up and it's impossible for me to be experiencing this.
I'm not looking for a diagnosis from reddit or for anyone to tell me precisely what's going on. But I think, as I said, I need help making sense of this or at least to feel less like I'm alone. There's more than what I've said here, but this is already a mile long.
Thank you so much to anyone who's read the whole thing or responded. I'm in a vulnerable place and it means a lot.

2021.12.05 02:44 anisurrups 📖 Greek Political Institutions 📖
Greek and Roman cities were political communities, which possessed the institutions required for autonomous collective decision-making. This remained a characteristic of ancient cities from one end of antiquity to the other, even if under monarchical or imperial rule the autonomy of poleis and civitates was somewhat more restricted.
The Greek City-State Although the political ideas and institutions of the Orient are of interest, it is primarily to Greece that we must look for an understanding of the origins of western culture. In literature, in art, and in the sciences inquiries into our past begin with the great names of early Greek society.
Sophocles and Euripides, Phidias and Polycletus, Euclid and Hippocrates, are only a few of those that might be mentioned. This is even more true in political philosophy. In spite of notable refinements made over the centuries, we must still return to the great age of Plato and Aristotle for answers to political questions which continue to plague mankind.
Nowhere, for instance, have the questions of reason and authority, justice, and rule of law been subjected to closer scrutiny. This will be illustrated when we consider the dialogues of Plato and the Politics of Aristotle. But to place such a study in perspective, it will first be desirable to consider the institutional background provided by the unique city-state.
Greek Political Institutions The Hellenic world consisted of a group of cities, scattered among the valleys of Greece and on the neighboring coasts and islands. These cities had a tradition of common origin and possessed common social and religious institutions. Politically, however, they were independent, save for impermanent alliances and the efforts of certain cities to dominate their neighbors. Colonies were frequently sent out, but they soon severed political ties with the home land, becoming autonomous.
Kingship in the Homeric tradition appears very early in the political organization of these city-states. But by the seventh century b.c. oligarchies, composed of the heads of the leading clans or tribes, controlled most of the cities. These oligarchies, grown lazy and quarrelsome, were themselves replaced from 700 to 500 B.c. by tyrants, who appeared first as champions of the people.
Soon, however, it became evident that the corruption and arbitrary rule of the oligarchies had been mild in comparison with the capriciousness of these ambitious men. Uniting with the aristocracy the people successfully rebelled in city after city, driving the tyrants out. There then ensued a long period of democratic control punctuated by contests with the aristocracy. It was during this period that Greek political thought had its beginning.
Of the city-states, two stand out in importance. Sparta and Athens early asserting their leadership. It was to these cities that the Greeks turned when the Persian invasion compelled united action, and it was Sparta and Athens whose later rivalry ended in the Peloponnesian War.
The government of Sparta was based upon a rigid social system which divided the population into three classes. The most numerous were the Helots, or serfs, whose agricultural labor supported the population, but who had no share in civil or political rights. The Perioikoi, or middle class engaged mainly in industry and commerce, possessed civil rights, but had no share in the political life of the state.
The Spartans proper, descendants of the original Dorian conquerors, though few in numbers, had absolute control in public affairs. They owned the land, were forbidden to engage in trade, and devoted their energy mainly to military service until the maturity of physical life was passed, after which they assumed the duties of government. Their life was rigidly regulated and communistic.
Children at the age of seven were placed in-the hands of state officials for uniform training; the adult males ate at the public mess hall. Physical perfection and eugenics were emphasized, and all forms of luxury and inequality were prohibited. In every dispute the judgment of the magistrate was final, written laws being expressly forbidden. Intercourse with foreigners was narrowly limited.
The governmental system consisted of an assembly composed of the whole body of Spartans; a senate of twenty-eight members, elected for life; two kings, equal in authority; and an annually elected board of five ephors. The ephors, intended originally as a check upon the power of the kings and senate, gradually acquired political supremacy. As the number of landowners decreased, and many of the Spartans, unable to furnish – their share for the public tables, were excluded from participation in government, real power fell into the hands of a narrow oligarchy.
With such conditions prevailing, it is not surprising that Sparta contributed little directly to Greek political thought. But indirectly its importance must not be underestimated. The philosophers of Athens were writing at a time when Athens was rapidly disintegrating. Lacking social stability and military success, they turned to Sparta, drawing heavily on Spartan institutions.
In many respects Athens and Sparta provided a striking contrast. During a major part of its history, Athens was intensely democratic in both organization and spirit. Moreover, Athens was maritime and commercial, not agricultural; it had no traditional social distinction between conqueror and conquered; it admitted a large alien population into social and economic privileges; and it did not exercise a vise-like control over the lives of its citizens.
Social classes in Athens included slaves, resident foreigners, and Athenian citizens. The slaves constituted a full third of Athens inhabitants and were completely without rights. Much of the manual labor of course, fell to their lot. But it would be a mistake to assume that all of it did, leaving the citizens as-a leisure class. It is quite false, as Sabine points out, to imagine that in a city like Athens the citizens were typically men whose hands were unsoiled by labor.
Nonetheless, most of the mines and larger farms were worked by slaves, and they were employed by the city in carrying out the menial functions of the administration. The abuses which such a system entailed were not widely discussed. Slavery existed everywhere and was largely taken: for granted.
The second class, the resident foreigners or metrics, also constituted a sizeable segment of Athens population. As some of them were transients, their numbers varied. But many families remained who had lived for generations in Athens without acquiring citizenship. Citizenship was granted through birth to Athenian citizens only, so that aliens had little hope of assuming a share in the control of Athens. Otherwise, however, they were not discriminated against. They were possessed of full civil and social rights and were, as a group, rather prosperous.
All political power was vested in the last group, the citizens. They in turn were divided into nobles and commons, the former representing the distinguished families in the city. Originally all political authority had belonged to the nobles, but in the seventh century B.c. a conflict between nobles and commons led to the reforms of Solon. These made wealth instead of birth the basis of political power, and opened to all citizens some share in public life. When the tyrants were expelled in 510 B.c., the legislation of Cleisthenes gave a further impulse toward democracy; and in the next century, under Pericles, Athenian democracy approached its final form.
To be a citizen in Athens was to hold an active membership in the business of governing. If a citizen did nothing else, he participated in the assembly, which was the supreme organ of government. More than ten times each year citizens over twenty met together to consider the state of public affairs. Decrees of this assembly were law and superseded action taken by the Council of Five Hundred or by the magistrates.
