  1. Although not quite on the same scale, I understand to some degree what you're enduring. My only relationship happened for six months last year, and like you, I had a girlfriend who spent most of her adulthood in a terrible emotional mindset, willing to ignore people who actually had her back while caving to people who gaslit, bullied, and manipulated her (take a wild guess what kind of people her parents were). Also, like you, I truly believed that with the right amount of love and support, I could finally get her to see that she was equal to me and that a happy life was possible for us. But I was wearing rose-coloured glasses the whole time, and I did not see her negative words and behaviors with the same clarity I do now. Everybody close to me sensed that trouble was coming, despite still being supportive of me. But I refused to leave her at many points where it would have been perfectly justifiable, and by the end, when she broke up with me for the second time, I ended up resenting her and her racist, elitist parents equally. My advice to you is to not waste time and just end things with a clear and simple explanation of her flaws leading you to this choice, and don't communicate with her anymore. She should have at least one other person on her side to talk with, or she can go to therapy like you did, but you should no longer be her shoulder to cry on. Many people tend not to change for the better until life punishes them harshly enough, which is something I'm still living through myself. Self-worth is not something someone hands you on a platter, it's something you have to build with your own two hands. It will be agonizing for a long while, but you have to protect yourself first, and when you've spent enough time single and being at peace with who you are and what you need, look for someone with that same positivity and focus on fulfillment.
  2. I remember the days when he was brought up as a potential Sedin linemate around our forum. How the times change
  3. My reaction to all of the new signings:

     

  4. I don't think he'll necessarily be used like a top pairing guy. More like Myers will be trusted to take on some of Tanev's workload while getting offensive opportunities. Perfectly balanced, as all things should be. I firmly believe Tanev has been injured so often precisely because he is playing too many hard defensive minutes on a team that has struggled with cleanly driving the play to the offensive zone, and no other RD can be safely trusted with that responsibility. Adding some quality help could change that. Granted, it doesn't have to be Myers, it just has to be good enough.
  5. I imagine this is the Islanders' front office right now. Not a bad deal, even in a down year for Eberle. If he stays a consistent 50 point guy, they can consider it a steal
  6. Saw a recap of Undertaker vs Goldberg the other day...my God, it was so brutal to watch them almost kill each other with botched moves. WWE deserves to go out of business.

      Goldberg ended the career of Brett Hart with a botched move.  All brawn and no brains.

  7. Just finished putting bets on a bunch of things in this round -6 to 7 games total, regardless of winner -Top point scorer for this series being Brad Marchand -Tuukka Rask winning the Conn Smythe -Boston winning Game 1 and the series Not feeling great doing it, but I think that's where the winnings are. St Louis is depending too much on Schwartz and Tarasenko for top 6 goal-scoring, and Binnington just isn't performing like Rask, despite both being great
  8. Is it just me, or is Twilight Sparkle turning into Midnight Sparkle?
  9. Really? Gonna have to check my account too
  10. Just saw the new Grinch movie. I can safely say that it was good enough for me to forgive Illumnation for their Lorax movie

      @Rounoush you take that back! 

      Jim Carey was amazing in The Grinch

      Sorry. Karloff/Jones/Seuss is definitive.

      @5Fivehole0 Regardless of if Carrey's performance was great or not, that movie was hot garbage.

  11. Feeling pretty good about putting down $20 on Petterson for the Calder yesterday morning. Although I did also put $10 on Yamamoto just in case. Guy's guaranteed time with McDavid and Draisaitl, after all

      What odds you get?

      BCLC gave 6.25 to 1 on Petterson, 16 to 1 on Yamamoto.

  12. Ok, Netflix, I admit it, you were right to spam me with adverts for 'Hilda'. It's a pretty good cartoon. I'll treat it as your apology for that Magic School Bus reboot.

      I thought their "Final Space" cartoon was pretty good too.

      Hilda was awesome. Very pleasantly surprised by it.

      The only cartoons Alf likes is interestingly also starts with the letter H.  Hentai.  :o

  13. Well, no bet money for me.

  14. Anyone got money riding on the Finals? It's my first ever sport bet, and I got $45 on Vegas winning in 6 or 7 on BCLC. I also put $5 on Kuznetsov winning the Conn Smythe...not such a great move now.

      Couldn't bring myself to bet on it after seeing Sutherland assigned to the series.  I simply don't trust that scumbag not to rig the final.

      At the time I placed the bet, the payout on both series outcomes I picked was 4.9, so I put $22.50 on each. Also, the payout for Kuznetsov was 20.

       

      As for Sutherland, I see your point, although there are no Canadian teams to get screwed over here. Besides, if he does strike again, he would probably be under orders to steer things in Vegas' favour, given the massive PR/ ratings boost if the Cup is won by an inaugural team carrying the hopes of a city dealing with a somewhat recent tragedy.

       

      Also, I remember that Ovechkin and the Capitals management were pretty defiant when the NHL was enforcing the Olympic participation ban. Bettman probably won't forget that.

       

      Sorry if I sound like a conspiracy nut, but anything with millions of dollars at stake needs a cynical view.

      should've put 100 on Vegas to win back last summer when the odds were 500:1

      Hurr durr

  15. Man, Alex Jones could have been an amazing voice actor. It's a shame he was talked into Info Wars first
